The Great American Eclipse: A Prophetic Sign for Our Nation

solar eclispe

– A Word by Kathi Pelton

On August 21st, 2017 a total eclipse of the sun will be seen across the United States of America. People are calling this the “Great American Eclipse”. Though the sky will go dark for only a few minutes as the sun, moon and earth align, people have been preparing for this months in advance.

It is no coincidence that August 21 is also the first day of the Jewish season of Teshuvah, a forty-day season of repentance and return to God leading up to the Day of Atonement.

Alignments and Unity

Numerous prophetic voices have been hearing about alignments, preparations, repentance and many turning back to the Lord. Often we will see events in the natural realm illustrate spiritual realities. I believe that this is one of those times.

As we entered 2017, the Spirit spoke to me and said that the first half of this year would prepare God’s people to align in unity with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit according to Jesus’ prayer in John 17:20 (17:20 in 2017), just as the sun, the moon and the earth will align. However, God’s alignment will not be momentary, but eternal. He also spoke to me that July would be a month of completion that would usher God’s people into resurrection, restoration and true repentance. I keep finding myself saying the words,

“Repentance is freedom from wrong alignments.”

When I began to hear about the “Great American Eclipse” I knew in my spirit that it was a prophetic sign in the sky of a spiritual manifestation on earth, specifically for America.

Momentary Darkness Turning to Light

The months since our presidential elections have been a momentary darkness that is aligning our nation, and God’s people, to move into unity, restoration and the resurrection of God’s original intent. The forty-day season of Teshuvah will be the culmination of alignments, preparation and repentance to enter into authority. Repentance produces humility, and authority is a product of godly humility.

A little more than a week after these forty days of repentance, an event will take place on the Washington D.C. Mall called “Awaken the Dawn- America’s Tent of Meeting” (http://www.awakenthedawn.org/). From October 6-9, fifty tents from all fifty states will be set up on the Washington Mall to pour forth prayer and worship 24/7 for three days straight. I believe that this will be a time of “divine reset” after the forty days of repentance.

Over a million people are expected to travel to our state of Oregon to view the eclipse; so may we see a million people gather on the DC Mall this October to see darkness turn to light in our nation’s capital!

“Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You.” Psalm 139:12

No Longer Status Quo

It is time to align with the light of our God, even in the midst of earthly darkness. Then darkness will not be dark to the people of God. They will be the light of Christ to a world in darkness that searches for light. This is a time to truly take the seasons of God seriously. The Holy Spirit is calling, asking us to “Come up higher” in order to discern the times and seasons. It is not “status quo” any longer; now is the time to see a nations turn back to God.

This is Not a Set Back, It’s a Set Up

arrow pull back3
Alane Haynes

A few months ago, I was in a hard place and was seeking the Lord with all my heart, and the Lord told me, “This is not a set back, it’s a set up” and revealed more about that truth. I have been hearing that there are many that need to hear this.

I had been in a place of discouragement, due to many occurrences of “problems” in my life over the previous months that had to be dealt with – financial, career, family, illness – all seeming to indicate attacks by the enemy leading to setback and in direct conflict with words of promise I had heard from God and had been standing on. It was a real battle. I had been hearing these words, “Maybe God didn’t really say all those things to me; maybe I imagined it; maybe I misheard or misinterpreted what I saw and heard.” Then I heard the Lord say, “This is not a setback, it’s a set up.”

He told me to go back to what He told me six weeks prior during a consecrated time of seeking; I needed to read it again! This is what He had told me during that time:

“This is a time of expansion of horizons. Many things will be changing as I make way for the new. Many things will be uprooted and eliminated that in the previous season brought you great enjoyment, but in this season, they would be a hindrance to your vision and perception. You must be ready, in the natural and in the spirit, to know that I am sovereign and that ‘this thing is from Me.’”

“Thus saith the LORD, ‘Ye shall not go up, nor fight against your brethren the children of Israel: return every man to his house; for this thing is from Me.’ They hearkened therefore to the word of the LORD, and returned to depart, according to the word of the LORD.” (1 Kings 12:24, KJV)

“Many events will surprise and even shock you as the shifting continues. I am moving hindrances out of the way for My work to be done. What was a blessing in the days before would keep you from My best in the days to come. You may experience feelings of loss and pain. Do not let attachments to transient, temporal blessings bring a hardening to your heart towards Me, or an offence causing you to stumble.

“I am the Lord. There is no other, and I am a jealous Lover. Know that I am good, always, and trust Me even when you don’t understand My ways.

“For there is coming a time in the days ahead when things may happen to fill you with dread. Turn your eyes to Me, look ahead. Eyes single, focused on Me, instead. It will be as I have said. I uproot and I tear down structures and mindsets of others’ renown. The day is coming and is today. Look again, seek and pray. Have I not said I will show you the way?”

I was hearing and seeing an arrow pulled back to go farther. I was reminded of a word by Chuck Pierce about arrows – that the Lord is pulling us back so that we can go farther, and hit the mark. What I heard that morning is that I (and many others) are in that place of tension when the archer is pulling back on the bow as it is being readied to catapult the arrow to its intended mark.

As I meditated on His words, I heard the Lord say, “The bow is pulled back so that the arrow can go forward with greater force. While pulled back, you will feel the tension, at times it will be intense. I am using this place of tension to cause you to seek Me and to examine your heart once again, as we enter this time of Purim, a time of purification. In order to “hit the mark” in the spirit realm, there must be a fullness of My Spirit to overpower and overcome the forces of darkness, to take down the enemy where he currently has the land. You are being readied, set to go forward in the power of My Spirit. You cannot allow evil thoughts of Me – doubting My purpose and plans, i.e. ‘Did God really say?’ during this time.”

“Therefore thus says the Lord [to Jeremiah]: If you return [and give up this mistaken tone of distrust and despair], then I will give you again a settled place of quiet and safety, and you will be My minister; and if you separate the precious from the vile [cleansing your own heart from unworthy and unwarranted suspicions concerning God’s faithfulness], you shall be My mouthpiece…” (Jeremiah 15:19, AMPC)

“You must enter with a Caleb spirit – fully believing I AM with you and I AM who I said I AM and I AM fully capable of performing all that I have promised.

“What seems a set back is actually a set up to position you and ready you to carry more of My presence, to take up residence in places the enemy has had precedence. Be alert, be ready, allow no hesitance. I AM and My ways reveal my greatness and excellence.”

For those in a place of discouragement, take courage! It is not a set back; it is a set up! You are being set up by the Lord and He is faithful to do what He has promised!

God’s Wonder Woman Message

God’s Wonder Woman Message

Patricia King reveals the character and mandate of the Bride of Christ and shares on an angelic visitation she had on Pentecost Sunday last week.

“We have to extract the precious from the worthless and hold fast to that which is good… because God can use anything to speak to you.” — Patricia King


This is so good and an excellent word for all of us as you hear her 5 attributes of God’s Bride. Plus she talks about the SENIORS ON THE FRONT LINE GLOBALLY that connects with a video I posted on my Facebook on August 4th with Paulette Reed who shared about it and what they hope to achieve, saying, “This will help seniors to not pack it in and spiral down out of life but to be empowered to do more, to be mobilized and equipped.. We are building a program  for pastors and leaders with manuals and courses. Together globally it will make so much difference for seniors around the world who will be catapulted into their future Glory which is better than their former Glory! Out of your recliners and run, there is no limitation on the great commission. It’s God Time. There are millions of seniors who will be on the front line making a difference for Jesus”.

I think this would be a great project for your church seniors or form a group of seniors in your home! They are taking this around the world so wherever you are you can be a part. If you are young and have older parents or grand parents, retired pastors or leaders, let them know! I know a pastor who is 71 and he said a couple years ago he wanted to retire and God wouldn’t let him! This is why, you are needed, we all are in this final class of swords between good and evil, love and hate, God and the forces of darkness! We all have a part!

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

FROM WILDERNESS TO WONDER

static1.squarespace.com

Moving into wonder
Beloved ones, I hear the sound of the Father’s voice declaring over you today, “you are crossing over from the land of wilderness into the land of WONDER.” Habakkuk 1:5 says, ‘Look among the nations and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told.’

Where many have been experiencing long, drawn out seasons of wilderness, prolonged hardship and suffering, carrying weighty heavy burdens, I hear a new sound ringing out and it is the sound of the shouts of heaven decreeing a new season is in motion. You are crossing OVER into WONDER.

Song of Songs declares, ‘Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. Come along with me! I have come as you have asked, to draw you to my heart and lead you out. For now is the time, my beautiful one. The season has CHANGED, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone. The rains have soaked the earth…and left it bright with blossoming flowers.’ Song of Songs 2:11 (TPT)

The earth will be soaked in heaven’s Wonder.

I believe this new season; the land we are crossing into, is not just a natural experience of WONDER but it is a new jurisdiction of authority. Wonder is described as a feeling of amazement and admiration, caused by something beautiful, remarkable, or unfamiliar. It can also be described as a person or thing regarded as very good, remarkable, or effective. I sense in my spirit that this is not just a fun ‘play on words’, nor is it a coincidence that the word ‘wonder’ appears to be everywhere at this moment. This is heavens proclamation of the new territory that we as the Bride of Jesus are crossing into, both personally and as a whole. A remarkable season of unusual and unfamiliar displays of His goodness. The wonder of God removes human intellect and reasoning and replaces it with intrigue and awe and I hear the mighty sound of angels trumpeting, ‘the EARTH will be SOAKED and FILLED with heaven’s WONDER.’ We are moving into a time of wonder where we will ‘taste and see’ the goodness of the Father in new and unexpected ways and we will be in a continual state of AWE as we participate in His goodness, His love and kindness and HIs marvelous works as His extravagant glory unfolds before us.

This new territory and movement of God’s WONDER will be seen through both sons and daughters alike. The mark of the sons and daughters of wonder are those who are DRAWN to His heart. Their commission is to worship and their time with Him in the secret place will be as an explosion of displays of wonder THROUGH them. Their words and actions will mirror the Father’s, just as Jesus said, ‘I only do what I see my Father doing’, these sons and daughters of wonder will move in such powerful LOVE, the sound of their voice will echo the voice and heart of the Father. The fruit of the Holy Spirit’s workings of wonder through them will cause marvel and amazement to those around them. Those who are yet to be saved will look on and be lost for words as they WATCH God’s goodness on display through them. I see this time of wonder on display as a great time of harvest of souls in the nations. The land and season of wonder that we are crossing into will affect the entire earth.

A time of pruning and harvest.

I recently had a dream where I was holding a cup of water but as I looked closely into the water I saw specks of dirt in the water. I then heard the Holy Spirit say to me in the dream, “Shake the cup.” So I gently shook the cup of water and as I did, all the dirt and grime rose to the surface and I was able to remove the dirt, and the water that remained was purified and cleansed. In the dream, the Holy Spirit spoke to me once again and said, “This is what I am doing right now in my beloved ones. A small shaking that will permanently remove all remnants of dirt and grime so they can move in purity.”

The season of pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth. Song of Songs 2:12 (TPT)

I believe this dream is a prophetic picture of what is taking place in the hearts of many in the body of Christ in this very moment; it is a pruning of the vines as the scripture above states. Harvest is not accomplished without pruning, and I feel many are currently finding themselves in a place of ‘shaking’ or ‘cutting back’ where things may feel a little uncertain or unfamiliar, where impurities are rising to the surface. Be encouraged though, the Holy Spirit is preparing you for the harvest so that you can carry His WONDER with PURITY. This shaking you are feeling is the pruning of the Holy Spirit where He is removing the impurities of your past and awakening you to the song of your calling so that you may cross over without burden into the new land awaiting you.

The secret place makes way for your destiny

This is a new day of destiny, and the key to crossing over into the promised land of wonder is found in the higher place, the secret place of Jesus’ love and affection. As Song of Songs 2:13 TPT writes, Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of flowers whispers, “there is change in the air.” Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to the higher place. For now is the time to arise and come away with me.’

Beloved one, this is a proclamation to your heart today; the season is changing, your barren winter has ended and you are crossing over into wonder. Arise from your wilderness, run into the higher place, your secret place with Jesus. Look to Him, behold His beautiful face… there He will lead you out and guide you into this new land and season of amazement, admiration, and beauty. Surrender to His pruning in this season as He prepares you to move over into your new territory and jurisdiction. For the earth is crying out for you to be fully known and fully loved and the time is now.

You are moving from your wilderness into WONDER.


Such a beautiful word filled with hope for all of us – thank you Christy for bringing us what the Lord is saying in this season! ~ Charlene

God Says: “My ‘Awe-Gust’ is Coming!”

rushing wind22by Helen Madeline Cobanov, Brisbane, Australia

I woke up in the night with the words “August” whispering over and over. The whisper slowed and I heard the words, “AWE-GUST, AWE-GUST, My AWE-GUST is coming.”

In the morning, I asked the Lord what He was saying and I was prompted to look up the meaning of the words “AWE” and “GUST.”

AWE – an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, fear, etc., produced by that which is grand, sublime, extremely powerful, or the like.

GUST – A sudden, strong blast of wind. A sudden rush or burst of WATER, FIRE, SMOKE, SOUND, etc. An outburst of passionate feeling.

Then the Lord showed me this “AWE-GUST” sweeping across this land with UNDENIABLE, UNEXPLAINABLE, SUPERNATURAL signs and wonders. I saw these words sweeping across the airwaves as people stood in AWE.

“O God, to the farthest corners of the planet, people will stand in awe, startled and stunned by Your signs and wonders…” (Ps. 65:8 TPT)

Then He highlighted the words “WATER, FIRE, SMOKE and SOUND” to me. He showed me how each one of these represented signs of GOD’S GLORY, HIS POWER, HIS PRESENCE, and HIS SPIRIT throughout Scripture.

He said, “I am coming as a mighty AWE-GUST across this land. My Spirit is going to rush in like a mighty wind, into your churches, your homes, businesses, schools, hospitals, and into the air you breathe and into your very surroundings I will come.

I Will Pour Out! The Sound of My Heart

“My living water will be poured out, My holy fire will come down, My presence will be thick, like smoke filling the atmosphere; and a sound will ring out across this land, a sound like no other.

“The sound of My heart! It will be sung out, spoken out, preached, played and prayed across this land. People will see Me and feel Me in ways they have never experienced before as I AWAKEN them and they will be moved in AWE of who I AM.”

“In the last days,” God says, “I will pour out My Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on My servants, both men and women, I will pour out My Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.

“I will show wonders in the heavens above, and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (see ACTS 2:17-22 NIV).

You Will Be “Floored”

Then I looked down at the floor and the Lord showed me the word “AWE” written on it. The Lord said, “FLOORED WITH AWE, Helen – My Bride will be FLOORED WITH AWE and completely UNDONE, FACE DOWN, OVERWHELMED, OVERCOME with the goodness of who I AM.

“WAKE UP SLEEPERS! YOUR EYES ARE ABOUT TO BE OPENED and you will see Me like you have never seen Me before.”

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people, and His incomparably great power for us who believe.” (EPH 1:18-19 NIV)

Bible Studies at the White House: Who’s at the Heart of This Spiritual Awakening?

cbnprayer_500px

“It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life. They are so teachable; they’re so noble; they’re so learned.” -Ralph Drollinger of Capitol Ministries

(Washington, DC)—[CBN News] A spiritual awakening is underway at the White House. (Screengrab: Capitol Ministries-Bible study leader Ralph Drollinger/via CBN News)

Some of the most powerful people in America have been gathering weekly to learn more about God’s Word, and this Trump Cabinet Bible study is making history.

They’ve been called the most evangelical Cabinet in history—men and women who don’t mince words when it comes to where they stand on God and the Bible.

Ralph Drollinger of Capitol Ministries told CBN News, “These are godly individuals that God has risen to a position of prominence in our culture.”

They’re all hand-picked by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

“I don’t think Donald Trump has figured out that he chained himself to the Apostle Paul,” Drollinger laughed.

Drollinger is a former NBA-playing giant of a man with an even bigger calling. He founded Capitol Ministries with the idea that if you change the hearts of lawmakers, then their Christian world view will guide them to make good policies.

He’s started Bible studies in 40 state capitols, a number of foreign capitols, teaches weekly studies in the U.S. House and Senate and now leads about a dozen members of President Trump’s Cabinet in weekly studies of the Scriptures.

Health Secretary Tom Price, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Education Secretary Betsy Devos, Agriculture Secretary Sunny Perdue, and CIA Director Mike Pompeo are just a few of the regulars.

It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life. They are so teachable; they’re so noble; they’re so learned,” Drollinger said.

It’s groundbreaking since he doesn’t think a formal Bible study among executive Cabinet members has been done in at least 100 years.

America’s top cop, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, also attends the study.

“He’ll (Jeff Sessions) go out the same day I teach him something and I’ll see him do it on camera and I just think, ‘Wow, these guys are faithful, available and teachable and they’re at Bible study every week they’re in town,'” Drollinger said.

President Trump is invited to attend the Bible studies, too. Each week he receives a copy of Drollinger’s teaching.

And Vice President Pence is also planning to join the study as his schedule permits. He also serves as a sponsor. (Screengrab: White House meeting/via CBN News)

In Pence, Drollinger sees many similarities to Biblical figures like Joseph, Mordecai and Daniel—all men who rose to the number two position in governments at different times in history.

“Mike Pence has respect for the office. He dresses right—like it says Joseph cleaned himself up before he went to stand before the Pharaoh,” Drollinger told CBN News.

“Mike Pence has uncompromising Biblical tenacity and he has a loving tone about him that’s not just a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal,” he continued. “And then fourthly, he brings real value to the head of the nation.”

Like others, Drollinger often compares President Trump to Biblical strongman Samson.

“I just praise God for them,” he said. “And I praise God for Mike Pence, who I think with Donald Trump chose great people to lead our nation.”

Write the Vision and Take Action!

writing3

Karen Hardin, Tulsa, OK

There are many reading this who have heard the Lord speak to you to, “Write it down.” When we write something down it takes something that was just a thought, and when we commit it to paper it is like bringing it from the supernatural into the natural realm.

As I was praying one morning the Lord led me to this verse, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Write in a book all the words I have spoken to you. The days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when I will bring My people Israel and Judah back from captivity and restore them to the land I gave their ancestors to possess,’ says the Lord.” (Jeremiah 30:2-4)

I knew immediately that this was a word for this hour. Our restoration and ability to move forward is contingent upon our obedient action to write down what the Lord has done and said and to pass it on to our families and to others.

Write it Down and Take Action

As parents (spiritual or natural parents) it is important that we pass on to our children what God has done in the past so that we invest in their future. These become seeds for miracles.

Why is this action so important? Because it prophetically launches something into the spirit realm and takes the supernatural and pulls it into the natural. It establishes His promise of what He has spoken (see Habakkuk 2:1-3).

How many times have you heard someone say, “I want to do so and so someday?” We’ve probably all done that at some time. But a dream stays in the “hope for” realm as days, weeks and then years pass, and we don’t take hold of that dream to write it down to move into the action phase. What makes a dream move from the desire to physical realm? When we begin to write it down and take action to make it happen. It all starts with the obedience to write it down and capture it.

When we write the plan, it moves from a dream/desire to a destined purpose. It becomes a road map. Have you ever taken a step to begin a project only to get discouraged when things begin to go wrong?

Recently, my husband took over a project of building a storage building for my mom, when the builder who started the building had a stroke. Although in full-time ministry, my husband is really good at carpentry and so to help Mom, he offered to come over on a weekend to finish the project.

As he mapped out and wrote down what still had to be done, he determined it would take one full weekend. The only problem was, once he got into the project, he discovered the previous builder had set some things in place that had to be redone. The building would have not been able to withstand Oklahoma winds that blow through if he didn’t make the corrections.

What should have been a one weekend project became three. It would have been easy to become discouraged and walk away, but instead my husband pressed in, redid the work that was done incorrectly, and made the building secure so it could withstand any storm. He had to go back to his previous blueprint and budget he had written down in order to begin. In the midst of the challenges he had to sit down several times and look over his notes and make revisions to his plan to stay on track for the desired destination—the completed storage building.

When God gives us a revelation and we write it down, it becomes our road map. It is important that we go back often to make sure we are on target. When we don’t write it down, we can lose part of that vision/revelation. We are told to keep in our minds and heart what He has said. We are to meditate on the Word and keep it in our heart. How can we do that if we haven’t taken the time to write it down? We then are progressing without a road map.

We may find as we encounter challenges—and there will be challenges—that we have to make revisions as my husband had to do on that storage building. But as he went back and referred to the blueprint that he had written down, he was able to finish the project rather than walk away in frustration.

It Instructs and Inspires

This is especially important for our children, those who we mentor and those who are watching our lives. (And there are others watching that you may not even be aware that your life is touching theirs.)

Habakkuk 2:2 says, “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it.”

How can someone run with a vision if they don’t know what the vision or the plan is? When we don’t take time to write down a plan or revelation we can’t pass it on to others. As parents (spiritual or natural parents) it is important that we pass on to our children what God has done in the past so that we invest in their future. These become seeds for miracles.

When we write something down it takes something that was just a thought and when we commit it to paper it is like bringing it from the supernatural into the natural realm.

When Joshua was leading the Israelites to take the Promised Land and they had experienced a miraculous victory, they were given instructions to create a memorial so it could be remembered by future generations.

This is an important action of obedience and a prophetic act for the future. When we don’t write down the miracles and blessings of God’s provision in our lives, they are easily forgotten. Not only can we forget over time, but then they are not passed down to instill faith in our families. Miracles from our past become the soil of miracles for the future.

Create Your Altars of Remembrance

Write about the time God healed you or when God provided finances when there wasn’t enough. What about when God delivered you out of an impossible situation? What was a huge miracle at the time can be lost over time when we don’t write it down and review it.

Again, remember that past miracles become the soil for future miracles and provision when we remember and restate (offer praise) for what God has done in the past. It becomes like a fertilizer that works into the soil of our hearts that nourishes the seed of promise in impossible situations. Why? Because we remember what He has done in the past and that He can and will do it again. We see this as we read in the book of Psalms as King David “encouraged himself in the Lord” as he looked back and reviewed all the things God had done for him in the past.

When we are in the midst of challenge and it seems no hope remains, we need to look back and review what God has done for us in the past—for He will do it again. That becomes the power of writing it down.

It is imperative that we write down the vision and markers of God’s miracles in our lives and pass them on to our children and to others. We can see where Joshua did this after taking over as leader after Moses (see Joshua 4:1-7).

As you read this word, I know there are many who have been prompted in your hearts to sit down and write a book. To write down what God has spoken to you. You need to act because God can only move forward in our lives where we give Him opportunity. Until we take our step of obedience to do what He has instructed, the dream or revelation remains in the spiritual realm. We need to pull it into the natural realm as we write it down.

Make the Vision Plain

The “book” you write doesn’t have to get published on a broad scale. It may be your journal. Or it may be something that you publish with just ten or twenty copies that you pass out to family members this next Christmas. What an amazing gift!

I was in a writer’s group a few years ago in which one of the women was there to do just that. She was recording the miracles and her journey with the Lord to pass on to her kids. She wasn’t writing with the plan that her book would ever go into bookstores or that it would cost her lots of money to “publish” the book. She was simply writing down a memorial before the Lord to pass on and instill faith in her family of what the Lord had done in the past, so it would plant a vision for her family of what He could do in their future.

Have you written a memorial of what God has done in your life? Are you passing that on to others? God said, “Write the vision and make it plain so that others can run with it” (see Habakkuk 2:2). Did you know that God has a book of remembrance (see Malachi 3:16-18)? If He does, shouldn’t we?

One Blue Horse says: I am so excited about this word. If you blog, write books or journals this should really give you something to think of! I’ve felt moved by God to start writing more of my own blogs again and I’m needing to really manage my time well to do the research for things to put on Facebook and to write a good blog too! But God has really given me reason to push on with this word. I do have a book in mind too but a big item needs to come into reality from the promise I’ve been holding onto for nearly 3 years! Hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did and blessings toward “writing it down and taking action.”

How Can The Body Of Christ Divided STAND?

people divided4Matthew 12:25 But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.

I don’t often spend much time reading the comments after articles on News feeds or Facebook. They usually make me more upset than happy when I read all the rude, ungodly and destructive comments that are in with the good ones. We are a world terribly divided. I always struggle with not putting my own two-cents in as we used to call it. My mom used to tell me, “I don’t need your 2-cents worth, just do what I asked you!” whenever I’d try to explain why I didn’t think I should wash dishes or take out the trash.

Sometimes I think it would be better if people couldn’t make comments but then that would restrict freedom of thought and opinions. I find it easier to just not read them. But today I started reading the comments on Prophet Lana Vawser’s word over President Donald Trump because the very comment at the top just leaped out at me. Right from the start it was caustic, hateful, arrogant, judgemental and offensive to God’s sovereignty with no consideration that He just might have put the man in office. It drew me in to look at more and I found comments from outright trolls and some “Christians” who were sure they knew more than God even making statements about Trump not being a real believer or saved. I thought God was the only one who could really judge for sure if any of us are saved or not.

I did make two comments which I probably should not have … but I had to suggest that God just might be in control and the need for them to pray. Now I wait for the axe to drop on me! I used to make comments on news feeds and go on with life but since I’m on Facebook I found, late term, that people only have to click on your name and find themselves on your Facebook page where they can make comments about your comments! So far I’ve been fortunate that they agreed with me …

But you know it is an age old thing whereby members of the body of Christ simply do not agree on many things which ends in fights, church splits and even families divided. As a young Christian I used to wonder how the Bride of Christ would ever get it together enough to go to that marriage supper. We fight over things that are laid out in the Bible for us in clear words by simply changing the meaning to suit ourselves and how we believe. We even have massive disputes over Old Testament verses New Testament with some wanting to throw out the Old completely because of our new covenant. The old adage, United we Stand, Divided we Fall always comes to mind.

I think that Donald Trump being elected as president has caused more division and anger and splits than anything yet. It isn’t limited to the United States either. People including Christians in countries all over the world are arguing about it. I think that can be blamed on the news media and social media. So many opinions, words going over the networks and internet in seconds, constantly. Words are alive and they can be curses or blessings and the ones in forms of curses just stay out there hanging like oppressive clouds over the world. I daresay there are far more curse words then blessings.

But in the end it is the enemy of our soul to blame. It is a perfect storm for his agenda to destroy God’s people and take control. There are lies and twists and if you cannot discern them for what they are you join the wrong side of this without knowing. There are lying spirits, twisting spirits, Jezebel spirits, religious spirits and all their trailing relatives. The spiritual realm is real and the scripture that describes it that we grew up with is true. As you read through it you will find what to do about all this division.

Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[a] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—”

If we could each follow God’s formula we could unite and not have all this division. God never intended for His body to be divided against each other but to stand against the rulers of darkness as the light of the world. I believe that is why God gave us these simple, effective directions so we could stand together as one body under Christ. Instead of dumping all our “comments” in Facebook why not just pray over the word you read and discern if it is true and of God. If you aren’t sure just pray and ask for God’s will in things.

In the end I love the scriptures that tell us what to do for people in authority; whether we like them or not isn’t the question or the option, it is what God has instructed us to do.

Pray for All Men – 1 Timothy 2:1-4 “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”    

And if that isn’t enough there is one more truth in scripture that tells us Donald Trump is God’s choice and out of our hands…

Daniel 2:20-21 “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding”

Hope this helps you when you make comments and read comments. And I have had one comment on my comment while I was writing this and it was “good”!

PASTOR RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE WITH ALEX JONES – PRAYER ALERT!

Probably the only other ministry I know that see’s the battle for what it is. This is an anointed interview. – Lance Wallnau

PASTOR RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE on ALEX JONES INFOWARS – Says: Trump Removal Imminent, We Must Act Now to Stop Civil War/Martial Law with PRAYER around the world!

All Christians around the world should be praying for Trump, because globalism will affect us all.

This is a MUST WATCH interview every Christian in the world needs to see. Pastor Browne shares how they were invited in the talk to President Trump for the picture where they laid hands on him and prayed for him. It went viral as they say, and was hated by the powers that want the President out of office in any way they can. Trump is gaining popularity and getting a lot done and they hate that too.

Pastor Browne is in this video with Alex Jones to get the urgent word out for prayer from around the world as there is a Government coup being planned to get rid of Trump and not by legal means either.

Rodney Howard Browne was told by a member of senate that there is a plan “on the hill” to form a coup against Trump and “take him out” and not by leagal means either. Browne announced it in his church, as shown in this video,  because CNN wouldn’t run it. Then 3 days after the church service it came out in newspapers from Government officials to be the truth.

This is real my friends and we are the only ones who can stop it with prayer. PLEASE WATCH THIS SO YOU UNDERSTAND THE REAL DANGER HERE TO THE PRESIDENT AND ALL CHRISTIAN FREEDOM.

Please share this with everyone you know and please, please start praying, get your friends, family and church to pray. We must break this hold the devil has on the people in America or it will not be good for anyone in any part of the world. This is what they call the last bastion of Christianity that the devil wants to tear down and he almost had it done, until Donald Trump got in office, where he is standing strongly for Christians … and the devil will have him out by death if need be.

This is the last great battle in the spirit realm where the devil is going all out to take control as he knows his time is close to being over. I see Christians in other countries like here in Australia complaining and ridiculing President Trump. This is why the enemy is winning. Unless we arise and stop our complacency and questioning who God has put in office and stand up for what we say we believe, stop fearing man more than God; and unite as one true body of Christ and use the tool we have that can take the enemy out of play … we will all lose.

PRAYER, CONSISTENT AND FERVENT UNTIL THIS COUP IS BROKEN! AMEN.

“Yada” Cultivating Intimacy with God

curt landry photo 15

Yada, the Hebrew word meaning, “to know,” is used multiple times throughout scripture for a variety of different topics. However, when the term is used to define the yada, as the relationship between man and God, it speaks of a deep intimacy that the Father longs to have with His children.

As now a young woman, in my early days I grew up around the church. I attended church school. I went to church camp. My entire existence was centered around church, but I’ll share a hard truth, it was not centered around intimacy with Him.

Throughout my childhood, I learned how to memorize scripture, pray, have daily devotions. I learned how to talk the talk, but when it came to walking intimately with the Lord, I didn’t really understand what that entailed.

Recently, for a project that is totally unrelated to this subject, I was reading about the left-brain vs. the right-brain. I tend to favor the right side of my brain above the factual more practical left side. Through evaluating the pros and cons of both sides of the brain, I gained revelation about my intimate walk with the Lord.

As more of a right-brained extrovert, I tend to be spontaneous and extravagant. I show my love through giant outbursts of hugs and support that have no other purpose than to love and be loved. But to me, growing up, the God of the Church seemed more left-brained. He cared about numbers, facts, how many scriptures I had memorized, and about the level of discipline I could achieve when I woke up early every morning to read the Word. Still, my right-brain self longed for a spontaneous outburst now and again. A love walk with an intimate friend, but that just seemed too silly for a staunch and crisp Heavenly Father.

Over time, because I had no understanding, I would teach myself to place these inner longings deep within myself, hiding my need for a greater intimacy with Him from others and from myself. In exchange, I did my daily duties as an obligatory sacrifice to what seemed a disapproving God.

So, it is no wonder that when I became an adult and had the opportunity to walk away from the Church, and worse still to walk away from God, I took it. It was just too hard. I just could never measure up. There was always someone else who was so much better at self-discipline than I was, and it just made sense to me that God must love him or her more because of their abilities.

Soon after making this decision, I chose a career in the arts. In some ways, I came home for the first time. The arts are filled with passionate people who march to the beat of their own drum, who love self-exploration and expression. It was a whole new world, where I was invited to explore just for the sake of exploring. The process of creativity was enough. The journey was the thing, not the destination. Yet, after a time, that became empty too. I kept walking in circles and struggling to have a focus. Eventually, I just got lost all together.

Just as the prodigal son in the parable of Jesus, I would later decide that it would be better to be a slave in my Father’s house than to wallow in the mud of a pigpen. In a desperate cry for help, I chose to renounce my sins and to invite Jesus into my heart, understanding that I would once again be obligated to read the Word, memorize, obey, obey, obey. It wasn’t an easy decision. You may be shocked at this statement… but it just wasn’t.

Then, much to my surprise, what happened instead of a life of indentured servitude is this… My Father saw me from afar off! He met me where I was at, and in an extravagant act of love towards me He came running down the road, yelling out, “My daughter! My daughter! She has returned home! Kill My very best calf! Throw a party! Let’s celebrate My beautiful extravagant daughter who has returned to Me!” The Father, who I had so longed to please through works, showed me the overabundance of His true heart for me in a spontaneous outburst of love and celebration.

It has taken time, but over the last few years Father God has been removing the barriers that have stood in my way from truly walking in intimacy with Him. I understand now that walking in close relationship is a balancing act. I study the scriptures now to better understand the One who ran to me—displaying His affection for the entire world to see. I spend time in prayer for the issues that break His heart, not out of obligation, but because I love what He loves.

Please understand that this doesn’t mean that there isn’t an element of self-discipline that has had to take place. Both processes are the same in the sense that I choose daily to seek His face. The thing that is different is that I understand my relationship with the Lord can be unique to me. So now, when I seek Him, I know that it doesn’t have to be a cookie-cutter version of the person next to me. There are still biblical principles that I must walk out like everyone else, but who is to say that me coloring a picture as I meditate on the Word is wrong? It’s just a different approach.

I write in my journal to Him. I paint, dance, take pictures. I sing to Him. I plant gardens and walk with Him in His creation. I allow my right-brained self to express yada with Him in my own unique ways. The more I do this, the more I long to read His Word and know Him more. It is a life of devotion, not a life of devotions.

I want to encourage you, if you too struggle with developing an intimate relationship with the Father, begin a process of unpacking where those lies crept into your heart. Ask Him to show you where you’ve exchanged works, or acts of service, for private quality times that were unique just to your relationship with Him. Ask Father God to give you wisdom and revelation of how He is yearning to communicate to you through the pages of the Bible. Reach out to Him, inviting Him into every aspect of your day-to-day life—understanding that He placed certain desires in your heart for a reason, and that He knows your thoughts and your greatest heart’s desires. As you begin to allow Him to join you in even the silliest little expressions of your love for Him, He will begin to fill up those voids and places of deep longing for intimacy, and in turn His love will begin to overflow out of you and into the lives of others.

May you be encouraged today—strengthened in the knowledge that your Heavenly Father is an extravagant Papa who waits eagerly and expectantly to spend quality yada time with you… and you alone.

One Blue Horse says: I really liked this article as it went to the heart of a problem I’ve had all my life of getting Yada with God. I was raised and continued my adult life thinking God was cold and aloof from His creation. I was taught by church to read the word, learn the scriptures, do what was right and pretty much take care of myself and prayer for help was only for when we had no other way. I needed to read this and others may also. Hope you enjoyed and gained by reading! Blessings.
