Are We Willing to Go Through the Open Door?

Door-to-change

Randy and Barbara Walter, Berlin, MD

Don’t Let Fear Keep You From Your Destiny

We have been blessed by the wonderful teachings and prophetic words Elijah List has posted about 5778 being the year of the “open door” and this being a new season. We must pass through a door to enter the new season. The Lord told us this will require more.

“Can a new season begin without a new day? And can progress occur without leaving something behind? You cannot fully enter your new season without giving up your right to the old season. As long as you are still tied to the old season, it is possible to enter your new season but not be engaged in it.

“When the Hebrew children left Egypt, they entered a new season. They whined and complained because they were still attached to the old season rather than engaged in the new one. If they had engaged in the new season, they never would have reverted to the idol worship of Egypt. Even after crossing over into the Promised Land, they still needed to fully engage in their new season.

Thank Me for loving you, not because you don’t deserve it but because I AM generous. Thank Me for providing, not because you are poor but because I AM a Father. This way, the orphan spirit cannot sneak in and corrupt your heart.

“While they were in Egypt, I told them about the promise of a land abounding with riches. Did I tell them about the giants, the battles and the tests? If I had, they never would have left the house of bondage, nor would they have seen My mighty hand of deliverance. Neither would they have received My Law nor become My people. Fear would have caused them to lose all of this, so I gave them the promise, fed their faith, and restrained Myself when they strayed. Their struggle was to allow faith to arise and overcome their circumstances so they could receive My promise.

As a man’s journey with Me continues, I feed his faith rather than answer questions about his circumstances, so fear will not keep him from his destiny.

Broken Doors and Other Doors

So, in light of the year of the open door, it was very unusual when doors on both our truck and van broke within a couple weeks. We can’t recall doors ever breaking on any of our vehicles before, and we searched for the meaning.

Vehicles generally are a symbol for ministry. Both of these doors were on the driver’s side. The truck is for work and we don’t use it that often. The door hinge was broken and cost $150 to weld. We use the van daily to carry groceries, grandkids and guests, and for ministry trips. The track for one of the automatic doors broke so it would not close. Randy did a temporary repair but our mechanic recommended replacing the worn out part. Could it be time for a newer vehicle?

At first, we were concerned about the repair costs and wondered how we could afford another van. But God put us at peace when He reminded us that He is our Provider for the repairs and for another van when the time comes. We recalled Him telling us, “Get what you need and trust Me for it.”

One night, Barbara dreamed of the interior of a vehicle with a baby bottle on the console. The color was gray like our van, but it was all new. When we asked the Lord for the interpretation, He said: “Everything in the dream was about new ministry. You’re not stuck in a mold. The new vehicle has lots of life in it. The baby bottle signifies that you will have a lot to learn in this new season. The caption of this dream is, ‘Get Ready to Keep Up.'”

The closet doors in one of our guest rooms were old bi-fold mirrors whose handles fell off years ago. If anyone was able to open them, they came off their tracks. The closet was used for storage and filled to capacity. Looking to replace these doors, we found some old-hinged doors in our shed, and we cleaned and painted them and placed $6 mirrors on them. Now, the doors are easy to open. We reorganized the closet and made room for two folding beds, leaving enough space for guests to hang their clothes.

We didn’t need more room, we needed different doors. It reminded us of when the Lord asked, “How can you get what you already have?” We already had better doors.

Our son had to tear off his front porch roof because it leaked, which rotted the adjoining walls. It all had to be replaced. So he bought a beautiful new door and is in the process of relocating the entrance. This illustrates the transition prayer the Lord gave us: “Remove what is dead and prune what remains to bring forth more fruit.”

In the foyer of our house are four doors: one for entry, one to a laundry room, one to a guest apartment, and one to other guest quarters. Straight ahead is a flight of stairs leading up to the main living area. It can be disorienting for first-time visitors. The Lord often reminds us that He will correct us if we go the wrong way. He is a good Father and will lead and guide us. He is not trying to make it hard or confusing.

Since this is the year of the open door, we must ask ourselves which door the Lord is directing us to go through. He is not going to stick us in a closet, but perhaps we need to clean out the closet. A closet may be where you have unforgiveness, guilt, shame or orphan thinking.

Wallowing or Repenting?

Recently, we were bemoaning past mistakes we have made in our lifetime. We had asked forgiveness before, but felt remorse again. The Lord said:

As a man’s journey with Me continues, I feed his faith rather than answer questions about his circumstances, so fear will not keep him from his destiny.

“You’re not going to get very far until you stop massaging your guilt over the past. That doesn’t impress Me; it does you, because you confuse it with repentance.

“‘Woe is me’ is not the same as ‘Forgive me and help me move on.’ Whenever you wallow like that, you are trying to justify yourself.

“If you really want to please Me, don’t wave your past mistakes like a flag of surrender. Just learn from them and don’t repeat them, and I’ll be happy.”

Then we were thanking Him for not abandoning us, and He said:

You’re thanking Me for not doing something which isn’t in My character in the first place. Do you hear the orphan echo? So instead, thank Me for My attributes.

“Thank Me for loving you, not because you don’t deserve it but because I AM generous. Thank Me for providing, not because you are poor but because I AM a Father. This way, the orphan spirit cannot sneak in and corrupt your heart.”

Are You Willing to Go Through the Open Door?

When we go through a door, we enter another realm. Our office has a different function from our living room. The office is for work; the living room is where we fellowship and pray. Many times we don’t want to go through the open doors because they are scary. Even if we can see past them, we don’t know what to expect when we go through them. We say things like, “We’ve never gone that way before. Suppose we are inadequate? What if we fail?”

The Lord said to us, “An open door symbolizes trusting Me. Fear of the future and inability to control things can prevent you from doing that. Even though the door is not closed, you really don’t know what is on the other side. So going through is an act of faith.”

Paul was aware of the scary things that lay ahead through his new door, as he said in 1 Corinthians 16:9, “For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.”

We can dance, shout and celebrate that is the year of the open door…but are willing to go through it?

In ways this was a hard word but I liked it because it said “Tough Love” to me from our Father. We have to stop whining and questioning God like spoiled children. We are crossing over into a new season which has been planned by God from the beginning. So it is time He started treating us like adults and we need to go quietly into what God has for us with full trust. I say that from first hand experience over the last 3 years of tough love I’ve been going though. I did not understand it and thought I had to which caused me not end of grief that I could have avoided. When we don’t trust God and go through the door He has we only open other doors for the enemy to come through.

A Prophetic Word Released by Curt Landry

prophecy 5778

In Luke 21:25-28, Jesus said that “…there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the power of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

As the Church, we have given away to the enemy, most of the signs that we read as prophets of God.

The spirit of religion stole the Hebraic calendar from the Church during the Constantine period—disabling us from following and staying in sync with the Lord—and now we are following a Hellenized, Greek calendar. New Age practice, and the fear of it, has caused the Church to give away any connection to signs in the sky through the sun, moon, and stars. Therefore, we have lost our true connection with God’s timetable, and are not in sync or in proper alignment with Him.

Each time the Church gives something away to the enemy, we have less chance of understanding what God is doing or saying. Therefore, when replacement theology came along—replacing the Church for Israel—and we added to that the replacement of the Hebraic calendar, along with not looking up to the sun, the moon and the stars for signs, we can truthfully ask…

“Does anybody really know what time it is?”

 Many in the Church have not made a place for the gift of the prophet and Satan loves that. He steals the prophet’s desire to prophesy, and thereby causes confusion in the Church so that no one truly knows what time it is.

Do you not see what is going on? This is all about God’s calendar and God’s timing…

How Many Wake Up Calls do we Need?

It’s time for the Church to repent for the condition and the neglect of God’s house. When the eclipse came and God asked, “Will the Church repent?”—Did we repent?

The solar eclipse of 5777 traveled across seven cities named Salem. Four days later Hurricane Harvey (battle ready) hits the Texas coast at Corpus Christi (Body of Christ) and Houston (Hugh’s town—Hugh, meaning heart, mind and spirit) as the worst hurricane ever in that state. And then with Hurricane Irma (meaning war goddess), along with numerous uncontrollable wildfires in the Northwest, and the list goes on… Do you think that God is trying to get our attention?

What have we put before God and His house?

The beaches? The mountains? Disney Land? The Florida Keys? The Caribbean? National Parks?

Its all pleasure related. How many church services have we missed because of our own pleasures?

And now, look at the wine country in Northern California; with thousands of acres burned… billion of dollars are lost.

And Houston, the fourth largest U.S. city and oil and gas capital of the world… again, billions lost.

Is God reminding us that, we shall have no other gods before Him?

 So, What is God Saying?

What God said at Rosh Hashanah 5778 (five-grace; double sevens-double perfection; and eight-new beginnings) was that this is the year of grace and double perfection in Him—new beginnings for those who will put Him first.

If you align with God, He will align with you and take care of your enemies.

“…I will be an adversary to your adversaries.”Exodus 23:22

When God’s good pleasure becomes our good pleasure, the first of new beginnings starts to kindle in our spirits and ignites hope and vision for a brighter future.

5778 is not only a year of new beginnings, but is also a year of reckoning, where God is taking an account or a computation of settlement of past stolen or delayed resources.

On Yom Kippur 5778, the Lord said that 5778 was the year of the woman and He was raising women up to take their place in power, in proper authority and in dominion. He said that there was going to be proper relationship between men and women and covering, because if He is judging the Body of Christ and the Church, He must also reconcile what has happened to the women—as many have been mistreated and held back by doctrines of men for centuries.

It’s time for women to arise and know that they are not going to be held back by a religious spirit.

The word that then came at Sukkot 5778 was that it is time to reset our internal clocks for the end-times and for new beginnings. God is saying here that our souls—our mind, will and emotions—need to be in sync with the Holy Spirit so that the scales are balanced and that we know exactly what time it is, and can trust God.

We are in a time of alignment and it’s going to come to us. But while the alignment is happening, Satan, from now until the end of 2017, is doing his best to beat up and confuse us in order to convince the Church to step back into the second day. Don’t let this happen.

“And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.”Matthew 24:22

 We will be in a time battle until January 1st, but sometime during the first quarter of 2018 the time of battles will cease and the remnant will excel in its mission.

The Time to Favor Zion Has Come…

“You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes the set time, has come.”Psalm 102:13

 If you look at the businesses and ministries that respect and are tied to Israel, those are they that are prospering. Matthew 24:32 says, “Now learn this parable from the fig tree [Israel]; When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.”

In this New Year of 5778: Israel is celebrating its 70th anniversary of her re-gathering and statehood. God is going to send revival amongst the Jewish people and into Israel. God is already sending revival into the Middle East. That whole region is beginning to shift.

And don’t underestimate the power of prayers coming out of South Korea and China. You are going to see a divine intervention into North Korea and into Iran. What is going on with those counties is only meant as a distraction from the enemy. God has got it under control. Why? Because if you understand the biblical prophecies and times regarding Israel in the end-times—that has to happen first.

This is not the time of Armageddon. But when you take Israel out of your prophetic equation, your clock is off and you begin to believe the lies of the enemy.

Alignment is the Key…

5778 is a critical and important year. It is critically important that we make quality decisions to tell our souls, “Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name…”

 Alignment is the key to living in peace—in shalom.

“May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; may the name of the God of Jacob defend you; may He send you help from the sanctuary, and strengthen you out of Zion; may He remember all you offerings, and accept your burnt sacrifice…”Psalm 20:1-9

May the alignment of the house of God bring the Word of the Lord from Mount Zion… NOT from Rome. May you sow your seed according to God’s calendar for a one hundred-fold return.

Isaiah 40:31 says, “But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint”

 We are in a time right now where God is renewing our strength. He is giving us this time, between now and the end of 2017, to renew our strength.

God is telling us to trust in Him and not react when we see bad things happen.

After the beginning of 2018, we are going to experience renewed strength, renewed anointing, renewed health, and renewed finances. We will not recognize the Judah and Joseph ministries twelve months from now. Watch them now and then watch them twelve months from now—you will not recognize them—it will be ALL God.

The Lord says:

“Let no man say that he made Abraham rich. There will be no strings attached, because God did this… for I will go out into the wilderness and I shall raise them up.

 “For I see clusters of grapes that no one else sees. And I will pull them down, for these are the vines and the clusters who abide in Me. For their juice is from Me—it is a sweet wine.

 “And they shall say of you, ‘Who is this God who saves the best wine for last?’

 “For I say this… I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. My chief Rabbi of rabbis and Prophet of prophets—the King of kings and the Lord of lords—went to a wedding feast and commanded them to fill the jugs to the brim. And He spoke the Word and the best wine came at the last.

 “For I speak the Word now… Rise up, O you prophets of God—you cluster—for it is time to bottle the wine. It is time that I refresh the nations with the juice of the grapes that are in your lives. For you have remained as a cluster unto Me. For I promised you that if you would abide in Me, I would abide in you, and that you would bear much fruit—fruit that avails much—fruit to all the nations.

 Your fruit will avail to the First Nations first in this nation. For I will use you as Jew, Gentile and First Nations in a three-stranded cord, and you will be the wine of my communion. Many will drink of you and say, ‘I’ve tasted and now I see that the Lord is good!’

“The race issues that are happening between black and white, brown and brown, brown and white… there will be reconciliation…

 “For the time to favor Zion is now, for I am opening up the treasure chests of Heaven… And the blessings of God shall come forth in a mighty wave.”

We thank you Lord that there will be the remnant who will worship in Your house first and will seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. For we shall rise up—coast-to-coast—and there will be networks and safe houses all over this country, and all over the nations who will follow. And ten Gentiles will hang on the sleeve of one Jew, because they will say, ‘For I see that God is with you!’

“For I will synchronize their hearts. I will align their hearts with My calendar. I will bless their seed and they shall be prosperous.”

The Fine Line Between Inheritance and Entitlement

(And It’s Not Just Affecting Millennials)

Have you ever been to a Christian conference and experienced the high of swimming in God’s presence, then gone back home and not been able to replicate that in your own life? I see people come into our culture here at Bethel and when they get here they’re very successful. However, sometimes when they leave us and go on to change the world beyond our church, they often have trouble reproducing the same fruit. What they don’t realize is their success here was coming from the outside in, instead of the inside out.

The reason they were successful is because there was a watering system that sustained them here; a system they don’t know how to reproduce for themselves outside of being under our covering. This is what happens when we obtain something we can’t sustain. How does that happen? I think it all begins with the posture and attitude of the heart. Humility produces inheritance, while entitlement produces fading riches that can never be sustained.

What’s Wealth Got To Do With It?

When someone hands you something without you learning how to sustain it, you’ll typically end up losing it or tearing down the very thing you needed to sustain it. This is the difference between someone imparting wealth (whether that be financial, spiritual anointing, favor) and someone imparting mere riches. Wealth comes with an understanding of how to sustain and grow something, whereas riches gets you the good without the wisdom to manage it. Today I want to challenge you to partner with a wealth mentality in every area of your life so that you can sustain the good things that God wants to give you! Check out more on today’s Monday Motivation video:

In a nutshell:

  • There’s a fine line between inheritance and entitlement, and the line is called attitude.
  • The prodigal son didn’t get an inheritance, not because the father didn’t want to give it, but because the son asked with entitlement. He said “give the money!” which he thought should just be handed to him. He missed out on the business savvy that the father could’ve given him to sustain and grow it. The son got riches, he didn’t get wealth.
  • If you need money, don’t ask for money. Instead, ask why you need money. If you’re always out of money, then there’s a problem with the ecosystem (thoughts, beliefs etc) that you’re cultivating inside of you and therefore producing outside of you. Again, this is not just true about money, but about any resource that you’re lacking in life.
  • Psalm 126:5 says, “Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.” What I see in this scripture is that if you’re willing to sacrifice today, you’ll be able to shout with joy tomorrow!
  • I see a problem with our culture today with so many people living off of credit cards and drowning in debt…but it’s not just about money! We’ve become okay living on someone else’s resources, because we have no idea how to create the sustainability within us. We do the same thing with the anointing, with favor etc.. The big problem here is we have to keep borrowing it from someone else because we have no idea how to cultivate that on our own.
  • When you can’t build sustainability, you steal someone else’s, and then get opportunities you can’t sustain yourself… this is because you obtained the opportunities with riches instead of wealth!
  • You can’t produce sustainability when you’re always living for today.

Sustainability Comes With Perseverance

I want to encourage you with Galatians 6:7-9 as it says (emphasis added): “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

That scripture says that at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. The previous generation understood that perseverance and waiting is a part of life. It’s also a part of growing and building something that will last!

Activation For The Week

This week I want to encourage you to start sewing into one resource that you feel you need in life. If you want peaches, you can’t plant apples and pray they’ll become peaches. So in the same way, If you want friendship, you have to sow friendship. If you want to know God deeper, you have to sow into that relationship. If you want money, you have to sow with money. It may sound simple but whatever you’re lacking today I want to encourage you to sow into that very thing! Today pray about what ecosystem in your heart needs some work, humble yourself and repent from any entitlement (there’s no shame in this for you, but repentance leads to freedom and life!), then begin to ask God how you can sow into abundance this week! What resource are you going to be going after? I’d love if you’d tell me about it in the comments! I’d also love to hear how last week’s activation went for you!


images of grapes

 

Good word. If only people could understand the truth here which is simple. Entitlement is almost part of the DNA of many people in Western World. Only God can change the cultural lies set in place by years of false teaching from government, societies, churches, families. God help us!

Heaven Weeps for Pastors and Cries for Fathers

Screenshot-2017-10-21 Charlene Robinson

A Word by Wanda Alger

I woke up weeping, feeling the pain of this pastor leaving the church. In my dream, the Lord showed me the heart of true pastors in this hour and is calling us to pray for them. Their call is not to be charismatic CEO’s of ministries, but spiritual fathers (and mothers) who shepherd the flock. The grace on their lives is irreplaceable at a time when the world desperately needs a place to call home.

I saw two different pastors in two different settings. The first pastor was dressed in his sacred garments talking to a TV camera. He was walking around his office talking about the latest church campaign. He was laying out the professionally-made and well-coordinated materials to go along with this initiative, urging the viewers to join in the program. I was impressed by his talent and charisma, but was not moved in my heart or spirit.

Next, I was in a board room of a church and the members were sitting around the table processing a sad and painful transition. Sitting across from me was their pastor. I immediately knew in the spirit his heart for his flock. He was a true father. Humble of spirit, gentle, and compassionate. But, he was leaving. The members were grieving and at a loss. One even looked at me and said, “Do you really know him?”  It was a statement more than a question. He was speaking to the quality of this man who had been their spiritual father and loving shepherd. As I looked around the table, I felt the sense of hopelessness. Though there were others who could take charge, they could not care for the people the way this pastor had. I began to cry and felt the deep pain of heaven at the depth of this loss.

Heaven is getting our attention. Those who have been called as true five-fold pastors in this day are under fierce pressure to PRODUCE. Yet, the grace and call on their life is not necessarily to grow a ministry but to grow people. They are not looking to market anything. They are not looking to attract attention to themselves or their ministries. Their heart has been captured by the sons and daughters the Lord has charged them with, and it is this passion alone that drives them. They are the anchor of the family and the model to follow for they are true servant-leaders motivated out of sincere love. Yet, we may be losing them if we do not recognize, not just the gifts they have, but the gift they are.

In my dream, it was specifically a FATHER that was needed. This does not exclude women, as spiritual mothers are also needed. However, I believe the Lord is highlighting the unique qualities of a father that are critical in establishing a kingdom culture where every believer knows they are loved, cared for, and belong.

During this “Pastor Appreciation Month” (October), pray for the pastors! (Rather a “coincidence” I have this dream right now :-). Those who are truly called will bear the fruit of healthy families and will be well-loved by their flock. May they be embraced, honored, and celebrated for the true gift they are to us.

“And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding” (Jeremiah 3:15, 23:4 ESV).

This word made me think of how often we take our pastor for granted. Do we think of our Pastor as someone after God’s own heart given us to shepherd us as the Lord Himself would? Something to think of when you go to church Sunday.

Now Is the Time to Get Your Message out to the World

doug addison 5

Have you ever felt like you were made for something more in life?

Maybe you have experienced a great deal of pain and disappointment and wonder if God can still use you.

This was me for many years. But then I discovered my life message and I am now using my past experiences, both painful and good, to help millions of people.

We are sitting on a divine opportunity to reach out to people all over the world using the Internet. God was behind the creation of the Internet for the purposes of the revival that is coming. While in many ways the Internet is being used for the wrong reasons, we can redeem what is intended for evil and bring about good.

Power in your story

They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony … Revelation 12:11 NIV

Whether you realize it or not, God has given you the gift of your life experiences. Who you are and what you’ve gone through is important and there is power in your testimony!

Your testimony does not have to be religious; it can also be practical things to help others. It is so important to discover your life message, as it is the fabric of discovering your destiny.

It is so important to discover your life message, as it is the fabric of discovering your destiny.

Finding our message and style

In 9th grade speech class, I had nearly failed every speech. Then, we had to do a demonstration speech. Since I worked at Burger King at the time, I brought in all the fixings to make a Whopper.

Standing there feeling stupid in front of the class, wearing my red paper hat, I got them all laughing and showed them how to make a Whopper.

I got an A on that speech!

Other times, when I would try to do a speech or formal presentation, I would fumble all over myself. But if I did any sort of practical training, showing people how to do something, talking about my own experiences and getting them to laugh, things would flow for me.

This was a clue that helped me find my style and message, which I still use to this day.

How to find yours

What are the things God has been speaking to you in your life? Maybe you have a passion or dissatisfaction. Some people are driven by a passion for something and others are motivated by dissatisfaction about something.

Either way, you can use this to discover your message and communication style.

Begin to notice what themes or topics you are drawn to most. As you take notice of these and study them further, you will begin to see your life message emerge.

Here are 5 questions you can ask yourself:

  • What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail?
  • What did you pretend when you were a kid?
  • If you won the lottery, how would you spend your money?
  • What have you overcome in your life or are in the process of overcoming?
  • If you had the freedom, how would you like to help people?

For me, I had many passions and dissatisfaction’s. I love music, praying, reading the Bible and watching football.

Then one day, while listening to music, praying, reading the Bible and watching football, the Holy Spirit spoke to me. “I have placed a message in you to help other people with the very things that you have struggled with all your life.”

Thirty years ago, God gave me a strategy for sharing His love that is still a life message of mine today.

I invite you to take the next step and join me on a journey of discovering your message and some of the best ways to get your story and ideas out to the world.

Blessings, Doug Addison

Do Not Fear, the Breaker is Here!

“The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them.” (Micah 2:13 KJV)

On a recent morning, I felt the presence of the Lord strongly because I had two dreams in the night and had just woken from them. One was about identity, and in the other, I was in a dangerous situation that caused fear. I thought of the Equifax breach and was reminded that my life is hidden in Christ with God – that He is my identity and I am safe and secure with Him.

All things are hidden in Him. As I was declaring His greatness, I heard, “The King Eternal,” and “The Only Wise God.”

I declare right now NO LOSS. I declare that the angels are standing guard, and their presence creates a cloud that separates you from the enemy’s eyes. You are HIDDEN! All that belongs to you is HIDDEN!

“Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, [be] honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.” (1 Timothy 1:17 KJV)

“To the only wise God our Saviour, [be] glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.” (Jude 1:25 KJV)

The Lord then impressed upon me to look up “wise.” In Strong’s Concordance, one of the definitions of the word wise is “forming the best plans and using the best means for their execution.” This is our God: the One who forms the best plans and uses the best means to execute His plans – He is still on the throne, the ONLY wise God.

I felt the Holy Spirit nudge me to look up “Savior.” I thought this was odd because I have looked it up many times and know about the fullness of salvation that is included in the word Savior. However, I looked it up because I knew that Holy Spirit was going to show me something for NOW.

We Are Preserved From Destruction

One of the words included in the definition is “to preserve one who is in danger of destruction.” I heard that many in the Body of Christ are in fear right now and need to be reminded that I AM has going before them, that I AM preserves them, and that in I AM there is no danger that can come near!

I was reminded of how Jesus passed through the crowd invisible. Yes, “the King eternal, immortal, INVISIBLE…” “Then took they up stones to cast at Him: but Jesus hid Himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.” (John 8:59 KJV)

The Israelites were also hidden from the Egyptians as they passed through the Red Sea (Exodus 14:19-20 KJV). The enemy cannot come near; you are hidden, do not fear!

How did they pass through? By faith in God’s Word that He would go before them and take them into the promised land. Fear will drown your faith! The enemy wants you to drown in fear! But God says, “My angels surround and I AM near!”

“By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.” (Hebrews 11:29 KJV)

Our Identity is Hidden in Christ

We are in a season requiring GREAT faith. The enemy is coming strong to try and block us from entering the land of promise. Yet the LORD is with us, the KING is with us right now, to lead us into His great and precious promises.

Our identity is in HIM, not in what the world says, not in our money, our bank account or our credit rating. He hides us under the shadow of His wings. “Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in Thee: yea, in the shadow of Thy wings will I make my refuge, until [these] calamities be overpast” (Psalm 57:1 KJV).

In the book of Micah, Chapter 2, the enemy was coming in strong against God’s people to plunder their goods and take the glory from their children (Micah 2:1-2, 9). The enemy is so predictable! Jesus said, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly” (John 10:10 KJV). Abundant life, not plunder and lack. He has come to bring life – abundant life!

This is our God: the One who forms the best plans and uses the best means to execute His plans – He is still on the throne, the ONLY wise God.

He is with us, and the angelic host is doing battle on our behalf even right now. Our faith and the words of our mouth speaking faith are key! He is the only wise God – Eternal, Immortal, Invisible – to Him be glory, majesty, dominion and power now and forever, AMEN.

All That Belongs to You is Hidden

I declare right now NO LOSS. I declare that the angels are standing guard, and their presence creates a cloud that separates you from the enemy’s eyes. You are HIDDEN! All that belongs to you is HIDDEN!

There are forces doing battle in the heavenlies right now. Even as prayers brought release of Peter from jail, prayers are bringing our release from being held captive in fear (Acts 12:10). The angels are opening the gates and we will pass through! Believe, for He is near, believe and do not fear!

Now back to the Equifax breach… what does Equifax mean? In Latin, “equi” means equal. “Fax” is short for facsimile – an exact COPY. The enemy wants us to cower in fear at potential loss of identity – but GOD! His plan is that we come into our TRUE IDENTITY, not a copy (a facsimile) but the TRUE and ACTUAL new creation that Jesus died for.

He wants us living with His life in us and His power coming through us. He wants His life being seen and known in the earth – Jesus the HEAD of the Church – making known to the principalities and powers the manifold wisdom of God BY THE CHURCH! “To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly [places] might be known by the Church the manifold wisdom of God” (Ephesians 3:10 KJV).

His strategies and His plans, making known to the principalities and powers HIS MANIFOLD WISDOM by us! How? Walk in faith, not fear. Know that the I AM is ever near. Jesus died and rose again. He’s seated on high and we are with HIM! Do not cower in fear, for I AM near.

“I AM in front and will appear when the time is right. I will make known that I AM the One upon the throne. All things are created for My glory and your true identity is part of My story. Do not fear, for I AM near. The gate will open for MY NAME. I have declared and will receive all fame. Stay in faith and walk with Me, hidden in Christ you will ever be. In the days ahead you will see, and in MY identity be set free.”

“The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them.” (Micah 2:13 KJV)

“You Can Do It…Because You Are Called!”

yeshuawater
by Edie Bayer, Houston, TX

In a vision I had recently, Jesus was striding toward me. He was walking purposefully, wearing His crown and carrying something on His arm. As I looked, I realized He had a robe over His arm, a crown in His hand, and in His other hand He held a scepter. I jumped because He was walking straight toward me!

The Enemy Knows What God Wants to Give You

Suddenly, the verse in Esther where the King asks Haman what He should do to honor Mordecai, jumped into my head. This is where Haman tells the king how to honor Mordecai with a royal horse, royal apparel and a royal crown (see Esther 6:7-9). I had a revelation in that split second: the enemy KNOWS what the Lord wants to give you!

You see, your royal robe, your crown and your scepter are your AUTHORITY to rule and reign in the Kingdom. When you put on your garments of authority, you look like Him and have His authority to rule and reign! The enemy will stop at nothing to keep you from receiving your royal apparel, your crown and your scepter. Instead, his desire is to put you on the gallows which he has arrogantly constructed to hang you (see Esther 5:14). Yet, these are the same gallows upon which he was hung himself (see Esther 7:9)! Think about it! This is a prophetic picture of what is to come!

The enemy knows what God wants to give us! Why don’t we? It has taken me years of walking in the Kingdom to receive this revelation from God. It is for such a time as this! We must know our identity which is our authority for this season in history.

“And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?” (Esther 4:14)

You Can Because You Are Called

I received another amazingly clear revelation from God. I saw Jesus standing on the water with his hand outstretched. I then saw Peter step out of the boat onto the water. I suddenly had the heart knowledge that Peter COULD walk on the water because Jesus called him to do it! Our theology tries to make it so difficult! I have heard crazy stories, such as Jesus had to make the water hard under Peter’s feet, or the water was actually the Word. Our focus has been on the water, when it needed to be on the CALL! The simple fact is Peter COULD because he was called!

“And Peter answered Him, ‘Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.’ He said, ‘Come!’ So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, and he came toward Jesus” (Matthew 14:28-29)

Get that in your spirit! You CAN because you are CALLED! It was FEAR and DOUBT coming from the enemy that stopped him (see Matthew 14:30). Jesus says that you can, so you can! He has stretched out His hand to you and called your name saying, “Come! No more doubt! No more fear!”

What Can I Do to Get You to Stand Up?

While ministering up in Canada, I received a vision of Jesus sitting on a park bench, lounging, with His arms stretched out on the back of the seat, legs crossed. He sat there awhile, casually turning his head first one way, and then the other. I got the impression He was people watching. I asked Him, “What are you doing?” He said, “I am just looking at My creation; the people, the birds.” He sat there for so long that, even in the vision, I became uncomfortable. I finally said, “What can I do to get you to stand up?” His head whipped around to look straight at me, and with piercing eyes, He said, “That’s not the question. The question is, ‘What can I do to get YOU to stand up?'”

He told me to hold my hands out, palms up, to receive. I did, and He placed there a staff…a walking stick, called a mattah in Hebrew. As Jehovah would have it, earlier in the day before this vision, a leader in Canada “accidentally” texted me Strong’s definition of mattah. We know that God does nothing accidentally, but at that moment I didn’t really think much of it. I just read the definition in my text messages, thinking it was interesting. Little did I know that Jesus caused that “accident”!

Mattah: rod, staff, tribe; or (feminine) mattah {mat-taw’}; from natah; a branch (as extending); figuratively, a tribe; also a rod, whether for chastising (figuratively, correction), ruling (a sceptre), throwing (a lance), or walking (a staff; figuratively, a support of life, e.g. Bread) – rod, staff, tribe.

When Jesus – the Branch, the Bread of Life, the Mattah – put that staff in my hands, He gave me Himself, along with everything I needed to walk this walk and to rule with AUTHORITY! He is my scepter for ruling and reigning as His tribe of the firstborn sons. Now, He is giving YOU this same mattah – He is giving Himself to you! Hold out your hands to receive! Here comes your AUTHORITY!

You have all you need to overcome, to rule, to reign, and to walk the walk of authority in this season. It has been given to you by Jesus Himself. You are hand-selected, hand-picked, sanctified and set apart for His Kingdom purposes. Put on your royal robes and hold that scepter high! Knowing your identity in this season is crucial. So, know yours and rule like you mean it!

walk on water

 

I love this picture which I found on Gypsy Dallas Smith’s Facebook and I like the thought of Jesus always there waiting for us to put out our hand to Him so He can lift us up out of the mess we are in and set us back on a good dry path. Ever waiting for us with love, protection, comfort and direction.

Abiding Under His Wing

wings2A Word by Angela Stolba

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. | Psalm 91:1-4

Recently, as I have been walking through a personal season of difficulty, the Lord brought Psalm 91 to my remembrance. He reminded me of one of His promises: no matter what I may be facing, or what storm I may be walking through, I am highly protected and hidden under His wings.

As I was laying on the couch, meditating and praying Psalm 91, the Lord gave me a very clear picture of a large, beautiful pair of white wings that were spread over me. Immediately I remembered verse four of Psalm 91, which says, “He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”

This brought a whole new meaning to me as I reflected on this passage of scripture. Truly, the Lord’s Word is alive and powerful; it is sharper than any double-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12).

I want to encourage you today. Whatever it may be that you are facing, as a child of God, you have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. The Lord is an ever present help in your time of need; you are hidden and protected in Him, as you make the Most High your refuge and strength.

This word came at the right moment in time for me as I too have been walking through a season of difficulty and fear has been beating at the doors of my mind for days. And at the onset of my season, nearly everything I read has been confirmation of God’s love and the fact that no matter what I face He is with me. Even in the deepest darkness He walks beside us to comfort and protect us. No matter if the whole world turns against us God will never leave us for even a moment! If you are in so much pain you can barley breath cry out Jesus, Jesus and He will be there with you. He doesn’t just save us but He stays with us forever loving and healing and comforting. There is fear abroad now as a means for the enemy to keep us from what God has for us in this season. One of the ministries I follow put out a questionnaire on what people wanted to learn about the most and “FEAR” was at the top of the list! They are doing a short daily video on it now that I’m running on my Facebook. So we are all in this but God is able to bring us though it if we just call on Him and believe and trust Him with our lives.

Scribe of God’s Heart

writethevision1

I posted this nearly a year ago and ran across it today and felt the Lord wanted me to run it again as I have new people looking and I think it is a good word for all of us who write anything! ~ Charlene

That word in Habakkuk was given to me in the 1980’s. I had no idea what it meant as I had not even started writing seriously. At the same time I received this scripture I had a prophetic word spoken over me by my pastor. It said my gifting was in my hands. I didn’t even use a computer at that time! I was not to think of that word or understand it for many years but God reminds us of things that He has deposited in us for a season and time. I’m not a prophet, I am a writer but God showed me recently through a prophetic word from Lana Vawser that to Him I am a Scribe of His Heart.

Many of you reading this may be scribes of God’s Heart too. When you think of it, the entire Bible was written by “scribes” hearing directly from God and observing what they saw and heard. That is what modern day scribes do. We may not be journalists out in the field reporting, or we could be, depending on where we go and what we observe in our everyday life. I remember the words of my computer science teacher back in the late 80’s. He said only 10% of people will use their skills and make a difference in the world. I remember thinking at the time that I wanted to be in that 10% .I don’t know if that is still an accurate figure but I know in my research I’ve found the percentage of people who make a difference in the world in a big way is small.

I saw a headline in an alternative news story today that Trump is going to allow Alternative Media and Bloggers To Become Part Of Press Corps and take part in press conferences in Washington. Before you scoff and say, “that could never be me” remember what God says, in Ephesians 3:20 “Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.

In a prophetic word from by Scott Reece, called A Strategic Year to Go Through the Gates of the Lord, he says in one place:If you will posture yourself in advance and make yourself available for supernatural Kingdom advancement, the Lord is going to set before you “gates of divine opportunity”. You will see them, recognize them and know that God has led you to them. In fact, God has already established them in anticipation of your arrival. Open that gate in faith and expectancy—what lies before you is a place of favor, blessing and opportunity that only He could have orchestrated.”

Many of you, like me, have had a seed planted in your spirit at some point in your life and this is the season and year where He is going to open the gates of divine opportunity for you … will you take a step of faith and trust God to move you into that only He could provide? It could be writing a book or becoming a prominent blogger or even sending out a newsletter to friends and relatives telling them of God’s goodness in the things you are reading and experiencing. Graham Cooke, a teacher I follow says that is how he started writing and now has written over 20 books.

I study alternative news and prophetic words daily and ask God to show me which of the many words out there are the ones He wants me to put up on my blog site each day. Sometimes there is more than one as you may have noticed. And like today I was going to highlight someone else but directed me to say this instead! God is speaking to us more all the time and below is the part of a prophetic word from Lana Vawser where she had the word on the Scribes of God’s Heart.

“2017 WILL BE A YEAR OF THE AWAKENING OF AND INCREASE IN ANOINTING UPON THE SCRIBES OF MY HEART” by Lana Vawser

I saw a SIGNIFICANT awakening happening upon those who are called to be SCRIBES and have not yet moved into it. This year, the breath of God is going to blow upon you and AWAKEN YOU. You will hear His voice so clearly, you will write so profoundly of HIs heart to release messages of hope, encouragement, warning and comfort to His people.

I saw those who are already operating in the SCRIBE ANOINTING for the Lord – you are about to have the most powerful encounters of your life with Jesus that is going to increase the SCRIBE ANOINTING over your life in TENFOLD MEASURE.

I felt the Lord say “SCRIBES, make sure you have MANY journals this year. For I am going to fill journal after journal after journal this year with the revelation of My heart to you. As you have feasted upon My Word, as you have lived and continue to live in the secret place, as you have heard and released the words from My heart of HOPE and ENCOURAGEMENT, words that reflect My true nature, I am adding INCREASE to you!!!!”

“The LEVEL OF REVELATION I am releasing to you My Scribes of My heart, in 2017 is going to be full of accuracy, clarity and My power like you have never experienced before. In the midst of this incredible increase of revelation and anointing, you MUST stay deep in My Word. Feast upon My Word and you MUST stay in COMMUNITY! You must stay accountable, you must stay under your covering. For the enemy would look for ways to isolate you and look for any ways to bring deception into your life to cause the flow of My pure revelation and increase of anointing upon you to be hindered. Stay close to Me, teachable, accountable, covered and in My Word.”

SCRIBES OF HIS HEART, YOUR GREATEST DAYS ARE UPON YOU

“Scribes, your greatest days of VISITATION, ENCOUNTER, REVELATION, FAVOUR and DOORS OPENING are upon you!!! DESTINY is being DECREED OVER YOU SCRIBES of My heart!! This IS your day of DESTINY!!!”

I think as this year draws to a close we have seen many things to write about and from prophetic words we have learned more of what is coming! So there is even more need for scribes of God’s heart. Grab your journals and laptops or old fashioned pen and paper!
