Do You Hear The Sound Of Rain?


Do You Hear The Sound Of Rain?

A prophet spends much of His life waiting on God. Elijah had waited three long years and in the third year the Lord came to Elijah saying "Go and present yourself to meet Ahab and I will send rain on the land. Obadiah was governor in Ahab's house and knew the inner workings of this wicked king. His soul would often feel vexed as he served this ungodly king. We too as children of the King are placed in situations that are not of our own choosing yet they do work together for good the purposes of God, in our lifetime.

Obadiah hid one hundred of God's prophets to protect them from Jezebel because of his access to information in the house of Ahab. The Lord can reveal to us the plans of the enemy ahead of time that we might thwart them. Obadiah met Elijah and he was told to announce him to the king. Fear overtook this man of God after seeing the havoc against the prophets of God and so he tells him all he has done to protect the prophets. You too must guard against fear entering your heart. Prophet of God you must walk fearlessly in this hour standing against the enemy. Has fear stopped you from doing what the Lord has asked of you. Pressures cause fears to surface and you need to root fear out of your life. The fear of man brings a snare. Obadiah faced fear and we too will face it but will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony.

Elijah was determined and did not seem sympathetic to him. He had received the word of the Lord and was now responsible to deliver that word . He could not allow Obadiah's fear to stop him from delivering what the Lord had spoken. Has anyone keep you from obeying the voice of the Lord as they shared their fears? Guard against the transfer of fear from another.

Obadiah went to meet Ahab and soon the meeting of all meetings would take place. Ahab was now more responsive after three years of famine and went to meet Elijah still blaming him. He was being blamed for doing right. What you do will not always seem right to man but the Lord looks on your heart. We are told, it is better, if God should will it so, that you suffer for doing what is right rather than for doing what is wrong. Remember this when trials come.

Elijah reminded Ahab of forsaking the commandments of the Lord and following after Baalim. Other gods always bring defeat. Elijah said, have all Israel and those false prophets meet me on Mt. Caramel. Included were those that ate at Jezebels table. There are many today that eat at Jezebels table and we must learn to recognize them . We need to be on guard against Jezebel and discern his presence. We need to wage war against this spirit and win.

Elijah asked the people how long have you been between two opinions. In other words make up your mind folks and decide this day whom you are going to follow. If you are going to follow the Lord than follow Him. There are many in the church that need to get off the fence. They have been on the fence for too long with a foot in the world and one in the church. God is saying no more, it is time to make up your mind and decide to follow Jesus. The church is wondering why it has no power. Come out from them and be separate and touch not the unclean thing and the Lord will receive you. There are moments that we will be called to stand alone. Elijah was standing alone with the Lord against the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal. This battle would not be won by conventional means. He let the enemy show himself first and fail. No fire appeared under the bullock and then he mocked them about their dead god. Now the Lord would show himself strong. Fear not it may seem that the enemy has had the upper hand but the battle is not yet over. The Lord will show up and show himself strong for you. Only fear not and be of good courage and He will strengthen your heart. Do not give up now! Your miracle may be just around the corner. Stand fast beloved, believe what the Lord has spoken to you and do not bow down to the enemy. What you have been praying for is just around the corner so hold fast and see the hand of the Lord move on your behalf.

The people were invited to come closer to Elijah and now had a front row seat. All eyes were on Elijah as he repaired the altar of the Lord. Honoring the Lord by building an altar in the name of the Lord was his primary thought. What has the Lord spoken to you to do to honor him? Whatever he has spoken to you to do, do it with all your heart and you will see him move on your behalf. Eyes must have raised as Elijah pour water on the sacrifice for the third time. All may seem dead around you but the Lord is going to raise those dead bones to life. Speak to the dead bones and see them come alive. Put it all on the altar to the Lord holding nothing back. Do not receive the lie of the enemy but believe the Lord desires to move on your behalf. Speak life to that which needs life in your situation. God the giver of life will show himself strong for you. Be courageous beloved and expect Him to do abundantly above all you ask or think. He is a God of miracles.

Elijah, knowing His God, came near, called out to the Lord and gave honor to Him. Give the Lord the honor due His name. He is God we are His servants, and not the other way around. Honor Him for who He is and know that we are but dust without Him.

Elijah wanting to bring glory to the Lord asked for a miracle. His desire was that they might know the Lord and that He had touched their hearts. God is looking for right motives. Let Him search your heart today. Pray, create in me a clean heart. God will do great things in the life of a man or woman that will not touch His glory. The fire of the Lord fell, the sacrifice was consumed and the people fell on their faces acknowledging that He was the Lord. We need to see signs and wonders following our ministries today. Four hundred and fifty prophets were killed that day and Elijah told Ahab get up, eat and drink, for there is the sound of rain. He heard the sound in the spirit and God would soon release the rain.

God is wanting to release the rain of His Spirit on our land. Sin has been holding back the hand of God's blessing in our lives. Let us repent of sin in our Nation and in our lives. Stand in the gap and birth the rain. See the small cloud and hear the sound. We must birth the rain and bring in a harvest of souls. These are the last days and God is wanting the latter rain to be poured out and the harvest brought in. He is no longer going to hold back His word but will perform it. Intercessors cry out and birth the rain. Elijah bowed down and interceded birthing the rain. Ask God if it is your time to birth that which He has spoken to you. Pray for your cities and towns and tear down the strongholds of the enemy. Fulfill your assignments from the Lord and receive fresh ones. You will come to a new level as you are obedient and He sees your faithfulness. It is the time of the former and latter rain. Birth the double portion. Birth it and usher in the Kingdom of the Lord. Be a part of bringing in the end time harvest. Pray for fresh vision, see the cloud, hear the rain, and pray His Kingdom come, His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

41And Elijah said to Ahab, Go up, eat and drink, for there is the sound of abundance of rain.

42So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he bowed himself down upon the earth and put his face between his knees

43And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up and looked and said, There is nothing. Elijah said, Go again seven times.

44And at the seventh time the servant said, A cloud as small as a man's hand is arising out of the sea. And Elijah said, Go up, say to Ahab, Hitch your chariot and go down, lest the rain stop you.

45In a little while, the heavens were black with wind-swept clouds, and there was a great rain. And Ahab went to Jezreel. 1 Kings 18:41-45

The Frustrated Prophet


The Frustrated Prophet

Many prophets have had times of deep frustration in their lives and these are moment that we need to press into the Lord and put aside as much as possible those things that bring frustration. It is time to lay all aside and come deeper into the presence of the Lord. All the cares of this life will be here and will be resolved in a much better way if you just come close to Me. Life must be lived at the foot of the cross and time in My Word and presence are mandatory to maintain your peace. The enemy is out to cause havoc to the prophet of God. You want to spend time with Me and yet the distractions come. You need to gird up the loins of your mind and take all thoughts captive to Christ. Bring every discouragement and distraction to Me. Do not try and solve things of your own accord but pray about them and ask Me for help. I am here to help you in all that you do. Come to me today and bring all the cares of this life to the foot of the cross and leave them there. The enemy is also trying to destroy the witness of God's prophets, by pressuring them to react in unseeming ways, so that he might then point the finger at you.

You are mine prophet of God. You are My servant and it is to me you rise or fall. Do not be discouraged but press into Me for it is Me allowing all of these happenings so that you will come to Me in your need. Come now and lay all else aside and I will bless you for taking this time, with renewed strength that you might walk with a spirit of excellence, says the Lord.

33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matthew 6: 33-34

Have You Got A Little Oil?



God is asking you today, what you have in your hand? Elijah had just declared that there would be no rain for three years. It was a two edged word. Sharp, as famine would now come to the land. Yet he had spoken a word and the Lord backed it up. It did not fall to the ground. God raise up prophets like Elijah in whose mouth is no guile. Let them speak the Word of the Lord and let it come to pass just as it is spoken. You are raising up prophets in these last days whose words will not fall to the ground. Elijah moved from this place of seeming victory in speaking for the Lord to a place of even deeper humility. The Word of the Lord said"go eastward and hide yourself by the brook Cherith and I have commanded the ravens to feed you here". Humbling at best.

A true prophet will be hand fed by the Lord. God trains His prophets in His school of learning and many lessons are yet to be learned from the Lord. His school of learning is not easy but afterward it will bear much fruit. He was fed twice a day by the Lord and the raven brought him flesh and bread. Soon however the water dried up. Have you ever had a seeming good supply of something suddenly dry up? God may just be saying it is time to move on.

God uses those in the body of Christ sometimes to meet our need and we need to be open and hear His voice. Now the Lord told Elijah to go to Zarephath and that He had commanded a widow to take care of Him. Might we have complained if the Lord did the same to us? Elijah obeyed and went and it opened a door of provision and one of being used mightily by the Lord.

He called out to the widow and asked her to bring bread. The Lord was setting up a circumstance for healing here and some lessons can be learned. She said as the Lord thy God liveth which means that she was not yet a believer in the Lord God of Israel. Her response was I have some meal and a little oil in a cruise.

God is asking you today. Do you have a little oil? Think about it! Do you have a little oil? Stir up the gift of the Holy Ghost within you and ignite the fire of His Spirit, Yes, you have a little oil. Look at what He has placed within you. Stoke the fire and stir up the gift that is within you. This woman was preparing to die, but God, had another plan. Perhaps you have been discouraged and ready to quit. God says do not quit. He is asking you a question. "Do you have a little oil"? Take a look at what I have given to you. I have brought you this far and will bring you the rest of the way. I filled you with My Spirit and yes you have a little oil. Let the fire begin to burn again in your heart. You have oil in your lamp. Victory, is just ahead. The Lord said the meal and oil would not run out. God is saying you will never run out of His supply for you. The oil in the house brought a miracle.

Soon this widows son was sick and died. She spoke out to Elijah and began to blame him, but God was there in the midst. Elijah knew His source of supply and turned to the Lord and cried out to Him. God heard and responded and the Lord hears you today and will respond to your cry. Open your heart to Him. It says, the Lord heard the voice of Elijah and the child revived. Out of this the woman became a believer. She said, now I know you are a man of God and that the Word of the Lord is in your mouth.

God is saying to you today, do you have a little oil? Step out in faith at my direction. There are those that need a miracle. They have seen no rain, they are discouraged and they need to see the hand of God move in their lives. I am going to use you in this hour and signs and wonders will follow those that believe. You who are my prophets need to step out in faith. Fill yourself with My oil for I have an abundant supply and it will never run out. I have living water that pours from My river of life and I would have you to give out that water and share Christ with many.

Step out in faith and use the little oil you have and I will fill you with even more even more abundant supply and the well will never go dry. Step out in faith and be used by the Lord today.

12And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die. 1 Kings 17:12

The Gift Of Prophecy, Prophetic Ministry, Office Of The Prophet


The Gift Of Prophecy

God is building a prophetic church with a Kingdom mindset. The gifts of the Spirit need to be operating in the body of Christ to bring His church, to maturity. We also need to have the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. In 1 Corinthians 12 the Apostle Paul said, concerning spiritual gifts, brethren I would not have you ignorant. God wants us to understand how to move in the gifts of the Spirit. The manifestation of the Spirit is given to profit all. We are going to talk about the gift of prophesy, prophetic ministry and the office of the prophet. We are told to covet earnestly the best gifts and yet also told that there is a more excellent way. We need the love of God in our lives. We can have all the gifts and yet not walk with the love and character of Christ. If we seek Him first and have a sound relationship with the Lord the gift of prophesy will flow with more purity. We need to guard our eye gate and ear gate so that we hear Him.

We know in part and we prophesy in part. In the old testaments prophets spoke with 100% accuracy as the Spirit of the Lord came upon the prophet for a specific time and purpose. The New Testament prophet speaks under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. We are told to stir up the gift that is in us. The Apostle Paul told his spiritual son Timothy not to neglect the gift that was in him through the laying on of hands and so we see it possible to neglect the gift God has given to us. We need to stir up the gift of prophesy by worshiping and praying in tongues. The more we use the gift of prophesy the more it will be stirred up and ready for use.

1 Corinthians 14 says: 1 Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. One needs to desire the gift of prophesy and God longs to give you the desire of your heart to further His Kingdom by edifying the body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 14:22 says that prophesying serves not for them that do not believe but for them that believe.

In verse 24 of first Corinthians it says but if all prophesy and there comes in one that believeth not or one unlearned he is convinced of all and he is judged of all. A healthy body will have all of the gifts of the spirit flowing when needed, in their midst.

We prophesy according to the proportion of faith. 1 Corinthians 13 prophecy is to edify, exhort and comfort the body of Christ. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. God's people so need to be built up. Let God use you to speak a Word in season to His church.

We are told to covet to prophesy - Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. 1 Cor. 14:39 The word covet is a strong word but you need to desire it earnestly. If you do this God will use you in this gift. Step out in faith and ask the Lord to use you in the gift of prophesy. Enter in to praise and worship and ask the Lord to fill your mouth with words for His people. Ask Him what is on His heart for His people. You will sense a quickening and His Spirit will lead you. Usually the best time to give a word is sometime during the praise and worship when there is a quiet moment. Sometimes we need to ask the Lord to make a place for the Word to be given. You may receive a few words and as you ask Him for wisdom He will reveal if and when you are to speak them out.

Always follow the guidelines for prophesying in the meeting you are in at that time. When unsure you should ask the one who is overseeing that particular meeting. It is important that those that lead praise and worship are sensitive to Holy Spirit and give Him place to move. It is easy to prophesy when those that lead the worship allow Him to move in their midst. It is much more difficult to prophesy when the one prophesying has to try and get the word in, on a wing and a prayer. It is best then to wait. This is something one learns as they become more sensitive to the moving of His Spirit.

It is good for someone who is growing in the gift to also begin journaling what the Lord speaks to them at home. Test and try what you are hearing and make sure it is in agreement with scripture. We are also told that no one can declare that Jesus Christ is Lord but by the Holy Ghost.


27Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. 28And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues. 29Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? 30Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? 31But eagerly desire] the greater gifts. 1 Corinthians 12:27-30 All are not prophets but all can prophesy as the Lord leads.

11And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; Ephesians 4:1

This verse is referring to the fivefold ministry offices. This is God's order for His divine government in the body of Christ.

God has divine order in His meetings. He is not the author of confusion. Therefore He says let two or at the most three prophets speak. This is not referring to the number of words in a meeting but the number of individual prophets speaking. Otherwise we would not have meetings where we do have a prophet in office give many prophetic words to individuals. The flow of Holy Spirit will always bring unity and order and there will be a general consensus to what the Lord is saying in a given meeting.

Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. 1 Corinthians 14:29 This scripture

is referring to the prophet in Ephesians 4:11

Prophetic Ministry

There are those that are used in the simple gift of prophesy that will have an anointing from the Lord and in time begin to prophesy regularly. They will find themselves moving in this gift and in time it will develop into prophetic ministry. You will become much more sensitive to His voice and the leading of His Spirit and find yourself growing and stepping out in faith often. God speaks to each one in different ways. In my own life the Lord would show me a picture of something before I prophesied. Sometimes He gave me a simple thought or sometimes a few words. As you step out in faith He will fill your mouth. This can be in a meeting, on the street, or at home. There will come a time that you may start to speak things more directionally. The quickening of the Holy Ghost will come upon you and you may quickly sit down and type out what the Lord was speaking to you for His people. This is especially true in online prophetic ministry. These will be wonderfully used of God as is anyone speaking a Word for Him.

The Office of the Prophet

There then comes a time for some that the Lord will confirm their calling to the office of the prophet. This is a lifetime calling of the Lord. It is one of the fivefold ministry offices. It is a governmental position in the body of Christ. God will confirm your calling to this office through others in leadership in the body of Christ. There is a season of time between ones time in prophetic ministry and the ordination into the office of the prophet. You will find yourself going through tests and trials as well as the Lord asking you to die to the vision. Everyone called to the office of the prophet will first die to the vision. With some it will be longer than for others. In my own life it was a period of about three and one half months where the Lord asked me to give up all prophetic ministry and to come aside with Him. The Lord gave me the grace to be obedient when He used others to speak this into my life. He spoke through several in the same week or and God called me aside. Out of death came life. Praise the Lord. Then the Lord again allowed me to come back into ministry and about twelve months later there was a separation for the office of the prophet by an apostle. This is likened to being done in the heavenly realm. Then a few months later my ordination (by an apostolic group who are also my covering) into the office of the prophet. One becomes a gift to the body of Christ. God puts you into this position for one reason only and that is to serve His body. You are called to equip the body of Christ for the work of ministry. Your eyes and ears will be sharpened and as you walk out this office with fear and trembling God will use you to equip others. He will use you as that intercessor with His heart. All prophets are intercessors. You will need to spend much time alone with the Father and hear His heart so that you have good food for His body. One in this office will have at least two other revelation gifts i.e. the word of knowledge, word of wisdom, discerning of spirits operating in their life along with the gift of prophecy.

You will be totally consumed by Him and die to all that you are or ever will be because you love the Lord and are His servant. You will live Christ twenty-four hours a day seven days a week and expect nothing in return. You will daily carry the burden of the Lord and will be on call for Him and know the fellowship of His sufferings. This walk is not for the faint of heart. You will be totally consumed by Him and die to all that you are or ever will be because you love the Lord and are His servant. You will live Christ twenty-four hours a day seven days a week and carry the burden of the Lord.**** One in the prophetic office will have signs and wonders following and be able to foretell what the Lord tells them to speak in regards to a future event as in Agabus the prophet in Acts 11:27 predicting a famine.

God is establishing His divine order in the body of Christ. The office of the apostle as well as that of the prophet is being restored to His church. We are coming to the end of the age and need to have a Kingdom mindset. The Lord is coming soon to rule and reign in the earth. He is establishing His authority in His church so that the body is equipped for the work of the ministry. There is an end time harvest that needs to come in and there are those that are not yet in the office of the prophet that are called by the Lord. Let us work together to see them come into the Kingdom. God is calling and if you sense in your heart that you are being called by Him by Him press in to receive all that He has for you and out of His heart you will minister to others.

The Hidden Life Of The Prophet!


The Hidden Life Of The Prophet

The prophet of necessity must stand back and have few friends.
His or her first love will be Jesus the author and finisher
of their faith. Need necessitates it and the Lord wills that
your deepest friendship is with Him. Your flesh at times will
cry out to be the social butterfly but you must curb it. I
am guarding your time and life in My hands. You will minister
and then step back into My presence again. Do not think it
strange, but understand the life of the prophet. It is one
spent in obscurity with the Lord and being brought into the
limelight at His calling.

You will often be alone with Me and not even desire great
fellowship with man. I have made you this way so that you
will be desperate for Me. Your life is in My hand and I
will use you, but not as I use others. You are unique and
wholly mine and I will not share you for too long without
pulling you back for a greater revelation of myself.
I will then send you out on assignment as that gift to
the body of Christ. I will fill you and use you and then you
must come back to the secret place of the most high for
fellowship and refreshing. You will spend much time flying
higher for food for My people and this alone necessitates
the silent life of a prophet. Soar higher prophet of God.
Dig deeper into My Word and seek Me. Fellowship with Me and
love me above all else prophet of God for in doing this
you will be serving Me.

And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches
of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which
call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. Isaiah 45:3

Watch And Pray



The enemy has sought to worry you and has awakened you with an
attack about things that have not happened. Do not receive the
spirit of fear that is attacking you but bind it in the name of
Jesus. You have been given authority over all power of the
enemy and nothing shall in any means hurt you. Watch and pray.
Trust in Me and I will bring to pass all that I have spoken to you,
says the Lord. Fear not for I am your Lord and greater, much
greater than your circumstances. Rejoice in Me and praise My
holy name for in doing so, you shall put to flight all the works
of the enemy.

7For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of
love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

True Prophets Arise!



Will the true prophets of God arise? Will the true prophets of God
speak out in love? Will the true prophets of God speak with a
clear voice that Jesus Christ might be heard in the midst of His
people. I am calling those of you that stand for Me to speak the
truth in love. I am calling you to ring as a clear voice in this
hour. Many are speaking the frivolous thing but it is not the hour
for play. It is the hour to watch and pray and work in My vineyard.

The hour is late and it is time that you who are mine to bend your
will and your ways to Me and spend concrete time with Me that
the ways of My Kingdom will be established in the earth. How My
spirit is grieved by the false prophets. How My spirit is grieved
at the deception they speak and I am grieved that my people
do not know good food from the bad. I am grieved, and calling
you true prophets of God to remain on the wall and hear only
from Me.

It is time, It is time It is time.

My people need a fresh word. They need to hear My voice.
Many voices clamor for place in this hour but the voice
of My Spirit needs to be heard in the land. Arise true
prophets of God arise and stand even against that false
spirit of Jezebel.

It is time. It is time. It is time.

Arise and do your first works and I will reward you in
the life to come. Look not for the approval of man for it
is a snare. Look for My approval prophets of God. Look
for My approval. I the Lord am speaking and it is time to
arise and be counted for Me and for My Kingdom purposes
that are being established in the earth. Prophets of
God arise.

For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall
shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible,
even the elect. Mark 13:22

Prophet of God.
You are contending for the faith.
Do not think your life will be easy.
You have been called by Me and are that gift to the body of Christ.
Do not think the life of a watchman is easy.
Contend prophet of God. Contend.
The wake up call comes nightly to the prophet of God.
Stay on the wall. Stay on the wall. Stay on the wall.
Let sleep be removed from your eyes, watchman of God.
I am strengthening you for the battle.
You are watching over the body of Christ.
You are contending for them.
Stay on the wall and do not leave your post.
I was despised of men. You too will be despised.
Many do not understand the life of the watchman.
It is not a glorious position, but needs to be filled.
You have been called to fill it.
Simply you are My servant and do what I tell you, watchman of God.
Arise and shine and let My glory fill your temple.
I will shine in you in the night hours.
I will speak to your heart. You will see much as you contend for My body.
You will see much as you contend for Nations.
Contend watchman. Contend.
Do not let your flesh take away that which I have for you to fulfill
for your flesh is weak.
My disciples could not watch with me one hour.
Will you watch with me one hour and more.
Contend watchman. Contend for many depend on your willingness
to serve. Destinies will be served because of your faithfulness.
Be encouraged and put your hand to the plough. Do not look back
to your soft bed but turn your eyes heavenward and see the move
of God I have planned for My people. See their need and pray for
them. Earnestly contend for the children of the Lord as they sleep
in their beds. See far and see clearly and do not look at your
circumstances but look to me, watchman of God. You are yet
hidden and will remain here for a season. Enjoy this time with
me watchman of God. The day is coming when you will desire
being hidden again. Contend in the quiet place and rejoice in
what I am doing for I am doing a good thing in your life.

6For thus hath the LORD said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let
him declare what he seeth. Isaiah 21:12

Harness The Anointing

Harness The Anointing

Prophet of God.
Redeem your time.
Your time is My time.
You were bought with a price and are a gift to the body of Christ.
Take heed whom you listen to.
Take heed whom you respond to.
Take heed and do only that which I speak to you.
You must be selective in your dealings with men.
I have called you as a gift to the body but first and foremost
you answer to Me.
Prophet of God hear Me.
Prophet of God see Me.
Prophet of God obey My Word and live.
You are My intercessor. You are My hands and feet. You have set
before you daily many choices you must make Pray and seek My
face and only then respond to others. I will help you make wise
choices. I will lead you to those I have called you to minister to.
The pulling back in your heart is the restraining of My Spirit
for you are being taught to harness the anointing and go only
where I send you.

Is God Calling You?


Is God Calling You?

The Lord has been speaking to your heart to come closer to Him. Why not stop what you are doing and spend some quiet time with Him? He has been knocking at the door of your heart and nothing in life seems to be satisfying you. This is because you need to take necessary time with the Father. Will you stop what you are doing today? You can be busy about so many things! Take some moments aside with Him and be refreshed with the refreshing of His Spirit. Begin to pray in the Spirit and build yourself up in the Holy Ghost. You need built up beloved for the battle is at hand and raging in many places. You need to prepare now so when the enemy attacks you are prepared and ready, strengthened in your inner man.

What will it profit you if you do not stand in the hour of temptation that is coming on the earth? What will it profit you if you have, what you call, a successful ministry, but not been successful in the eyes of the Father. Take time now to build on the solid rock for you do not know what tomorrow may hold. Build on that rock so that when the winds howl and blow you will be left standing with your face like a flint in the face of all opposition.

Victory will be yours as you are filled to overflowing with My Spirit. Read My Word eat it today and see if you do not feel satisfied. It is the only substance that you can take in where you will thirst no more. Come and drink freely from the river of life. It is every flowing. Come now and drink.

10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. Ephesians 6:10-20

Wars And Rumors Of Wars



You have been hearing about wars and rumors of wars and much of this hearing has led to your heart being troubled. Did I not say in My Word, “let not your heart be troubled”? I spoke to you of this in My Word so that when the time came you would not react as the world reacts to these happenings. Many in My body are walking in tune with a spirit of fear. Beloved I have not given you a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind. You see beloved you have the mind of Christ. Daily you need to gird up the loins of your mind and bring all thoughts captive to Christ. Take hold of your thoughts beloved. Take hold of them and instantly remove all thoughts that do not line up with My Word. My Word is sharp and as you daily fill yourself with My Word I will shine light on what is not of Me in your thought life. Do not entertain for one moment that which is not of me. Choose to reject all that is of the foe and live instead in the power of My Spirit. Think instead on things that are good and pure and lovely and dwell in My Word. In it is love, joy and peace, says the Lord.

8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8

Your Help Comes From The Lord!



When you face your enemies the Lord will show Himself strong for you. Do not despair but be of good courage and He will strengthen your heart. In all ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path. Stand firm and do not be moved for the Lord your God is with you in your going out and coming in and will not let your foot be moved. Hope in the Lord and trust in Him and He will give you the desires of your heart.

8Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Psalm 24:8

Build My Kingdom!



The Lord says, I have used you and will yet use you to build My Kingdom. You have a Kingdom mindset that and will be used to snatch those out of the religious man made system. The Kingdom mindset is the mind of Christ. I came to set man free from the kingdoms of this world for they will come to nothing. See everything in the light of My Kingdom and pray daily for My Kingdom to come and My will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. I am shaking all that can be shaken. Do not look at the shaking but look at Me and share your faith with others. Many are frightened and many need to know that I am their answer. Share the gospel of the Kingdom of God for it is at hand, says the Lord.

10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10 (NKJV)

The Kingdom Of God Is At Hand!



The Lord says, I have used you and will yet use you to build My Kingdom. You have a Kingdom mindset that will be used to snatch those out of the religious man made system. The Kingdom mindset is the mind of Christ. I came to set man free from the kingdoms of this world and they will come to nothing. See everything in the light of My Kingdom and pray daily for My Kingdom to come and My will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. I am shaking all that can be shaken.

Share the gospel of the Kingdom of God for it is at hand, says the Lord.

10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10 (NKJV)

The Lord Will Provide!



Many of you need to be reminded that I am your source. I will supply all your need according to My riches in glory. I can do abundantly all you will ever ask or hope for and you have not because you ask not. Many of you ask amiss and are looking to have your wants fulfilled but I said in My Word that your needs would be met and having food, and clothing to be content. I am working in many an absolute surrender of all that they have to Me. I own the cattle on a thousand hills and you belong to Me beloved. Surrender all for in surrendering all to Me all that I have will be yours. The heavens will be opened over you and I will pour out on you a blessing. Freely you have received. Freely give! Pressed down, shaken together and running over I will pour into you as you use all that you have
for My Kingdom purposes.

6 Now godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6-10 (NKJV)

Do Not Lose Hope


Do Not Lose Hope

God is saying to many of you, do not lose hope. He sees the trials that you are going through and is going to bring you through each one. Do not despair but turn to the Lord in a greater way and stay in His Word and prayer. It is not the big flowery prayer that He is looking for but He hears the cry of your heart during this difficult season. Reach out to Him today and know that He is there with you and is your help and strength in this time of trouble. Remember that greater is He who is in you than He that is in the world. So often in crisis moments my children forget that I am there and get upset as did the disciples in the boat. Know that I am standing with you in the storms of your life and as I stood with the disciples and Peter when he stepped out in faith so I am standing with you. Be encouraged and encourage others. Keep your eyes on me and I will bring you through to the other side. You too can walk as an over comer. Be of good cheer for I overcame the world.

28 And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” 29 So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!” 31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” 32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. 33 Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.” Matthew 14:28-33 (NKJV)

Seven Weapons Of Warfare

Seven Weapons Of Warfare


God has given you weapons of warfare with which to fight the battle and walk as an over comer in this hour. You are more than a conqueror in Christ. Here is a list of weapons that if used offensively and defensively will give you victory in the battle. You can walk as an over comer.

The Word of God

His Word is quick and powerful and it is a sharp weapon against the enemy. It will expose the thoughts and intents of your heart and go where no man can go. You will have your heart searched by the Word of God. He is the God of all comfort and will search your heart for your good and bring healing and life to all areas of your life. Jesus Christ is the Word that has changed your life and will change the life of others. Nations will be changed by the Word of God.

12For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

Prayer & Intercession

We know that we need to pray and yet the cares of this life often get into the way of our taking time with Him. We are told that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. It is one of your weapons of warfare and in praying your will be changed and come to know your God in a greater way. Prayer changes us as well as circumstances and it is what moves the hand of God. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. The Lord is looking for intercessors in this hour that will touch His hearts and bring about lasting change. Pray that God will make you that intercessor He is looking for and that He uses you mightily to bring about change.

And I sought for a man among them that should make up the hedge,
And stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Ezekiel 22:30
15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:15-15

The Word of Your Testimony

Your testimony of what the Lord has done for you is a powerful weapon against the enemy. The enemy may come along and whisper in your ear but as you confess what the Lord has done for you you will have the victory. Faith is the victory that overcomes the world. Remember what the Lord has done for you and share your faith and testimony with others. Fear not but step out in faith and realize that your testimony will touch hearts and bring others to Jesus. You will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony.

11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Revelation 12:11

Speaking in Tongues

The Lord filled you with the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. It is the power of God in your life. With it you worship and praise the Lord. It has also been given to you to do battle and war for the things of God. Pray in the Spirit often. Paul said he thanked God that he spoke in tongues more than the others. He knew it was the power to walk with the Lord. You will have increased revelation as you pray in tongues for a good while. Ask Him for a fresh infilling daily and you will walk in the Spirit. Praying in the Spirit is a great weapon of warfare and you will do battle with it and win.

I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than you all: 1 Cor. 14:18

The Word of Prophesy

The apostle Paul told Timothy to wage war with the prophetic word that that he had received in the past. We need to take the prophetic words we have received and walk in obedience so that they are fulfilled. Pray over them and call them in God’s timing and season.

This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war A good warfare; 1 Timothy 1:18

Praise and Worship

Your praise and worship touches the heart of the Father. Take time every day to praise and worship the Lord. It will lift your Spirit, bring you into the presence of the Lord and you will see the hand of God move on your behalf. Your heart will be filled with joy unspeakable and full of glory as you enter into the praise and the high praises of God. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

3To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. Isaiah 61:3

The Blood of Jesus

You were saved by the blood of the Lamb. Jesus Christ paid the price in full for your sin. Keep a repentant walk with the Lord and daily let His blood cleanse you from all sin. Keep short accounts with the Lord. Apply the blood of Jesus to yourself, your family and your belongings daily and use the blood of Jesus to do battle as the Lord shows you. There is power in the blood of Jesus over all power of the enemy.

7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7 (NKJV)

The Lord has called you as one of His end time warriors to usher in His Kingdom. Be encouraged today to stand for Him and use the Weapons He has given to you to fight the battle. You will overcome and walk with Him in white. God is going to use YOU.

It Is Time To Grow Up!

It Is Time To Grow Up!

The Lord is looking for those that will walk in love one toward another. One must do their best to keep the unity of the Spirit. He did not say that it would always be possible but to do our best and keep the peace. He has given you grace to walk it out for it is by grace that you were saved and with grace you will complete the journey. He has placed the fivefold ministry of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers there for the perfecting of the body of Christ. We are living in an hour when we need to grow up quickly. We are told that we all need to come into
the unity of the spirit and a knowledge of the Son of God. We need to grow up in Him and no longer be tossed to and fro but know what we believe and stand on it!

We are told to speak the truth in love and this is not easy to do but God will give you wisdom on how to speak what He wants you to speak. God is saying, it is time to grow up! He is looking to see His bride grow up tall and straight. Daily we are moving toward eternity and it is time that the bride be standing tall and about her Father's business waiting for His returning with great expectancy. Daily we need to take time to renew our mind so that we think as He thinks and have the mind of Christ. A renewed mind is a sound mind! God does not give us a spirit of fear but of
power and of love and of a sound mind. God is looking for us to deal with the issues of the heart as He shows them to us and to guard our hearts and also guard what comes out of our mouth. We need to edify one another! Let us put aside all the works of the flesh and press in to God. We are closer today than when we first

That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. Ephesians 5:2

Seek The Kingdom Of God First, Prophet Of God


Seek The Kingdom Of God First, Prophet Of God

I am searching the hearts of My prophets and looking for those that have clean pure hearts. It is one thing to operate the gifts of the spirit and another to have the character to hold the gift that is in you. Seek to have My character and have Christ perfected in you. You will be greatly used in these last days of time when you walk as a pure vessel before Me. It is the holy that will see the Lord and I am looking for holy vessels that will walk in honor and obey Me. Seek holiness prophet of God for without holiness no man will see Me. It all flows out of your relationship to Me. It is about relationship and fellowship with Me that the gifts of God flow in their purest form. Seek the Kingdom of God first prophet of God and all else will be added to you. I am doing a transforming work in all of My prophets and there is not one that I am not doing a deep work within. They are all being tested and tried and hearts are being searched. Rejoice as you allow Me to search your heart for out of it flow the issues of life.

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 51:3

Judge Every Prophetic Word

Judge Every Prophetic Word

There is a great deal of deception in My body and I am sharpening the discerning of spirits in those who are open to this today. You cannot go by the outward appearance. Even the prophetic word given can be a mix of new age and the Word. You you need to search the scriptures. The true prophetic word will not contain this mixture. My people err because of a lack of knowledge. Know My Word. Know the scriptures for out of it flow the issues of life. When you know My word you can judge the prophetic word accordingly. Judge each prophetic Word by the standard of My Word and through a clean heart and you will not be deceived in this hour, says the Lord.

Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. 1 Cor. 14:29

Hear The Call Of Holy Spirit

Hear The Call of Holy Spirit!

I am speaking by My Holy Spirit into your heart. Hear the voice
of My Spirit for I am calling you to come deeper into My presence!
Do not be content with a relationship that is surface but desire
the depths of My love. I will reveal myself to you as you spend
that time seeking Me. Above all else seek Me! Above all else,
hear Me!

I am speaking but Many of you are not hearing and many are hard
of hearing. I would speak to you. Open your heart to Me for you
were created to worship Me! You were created to praise My Holy
Name! Worship Me, spend time in silence before Me and hear the
still small voice of God. I am speaking to My own and not to
another. I speak to those that call Me by name and yet their
hearts are far from Me. I am knocking will you answer the call.
Hear the call of the Spirit of God and come deeper. All else
will seem mundane when You enter into the presence of your soon
coming King. All else seems futile because you need more of Me
to continue in the race. Continue to run the race and take time
in My presence. It will bring that refreshing that only My Spirit
can give you. I have spoken to you of the refreshing now come
and be refreshed. I am wooing you and My Spirit is drawing you
come and enter into the joy of your King. Be blessed of Me and
be spoken to Me as you come running into My presence. Come!
