Word of the Lord July 2011
by Prophet Phyllis Ford
Arlington, Texas
June 28, 2011

This is a time when some of your greatest accomplishments can be established as you yield your life before me. It is truly a time to shake oneself from negative experiences and avail yourselves to what I have placed in you, planned in you, and are preparing in you; that you may go forth to establish the work ahead with my grace and fortitude. And yes, there will be challenges and obstacles ahead. The most important thing must be determined, and that is ‘what do you believe?’ How will you obey the calling that I have placed upon you before the foundation of the earth? Begin to move along the lines of that which I have called you, established you, and perfected you; so that the answers to today’s dilemmas will be ultimately found in you.

This is a turning point, a time of great testing, and a time to stand for whom you have been called and what you are to represent on the earth. This time is now; and it must be now because the time is short, and the work ahead is monumental, but it can be accomplished with what I have placed in you, says the Lord.

The work ahead is a corporate one, and it operates because of what needs to be accomplished more than the individuals who are doing it. It becomes completed because of the cause by which the efforts are initiated. So many lives are hanging in the balance. I need sober-minded, strong leaders who are not compromised by their flesh and their loyalties to the world, but they are walking worthy of their calling, they know why they have been called and what their responsibility is. You are about to see some serious things take place because of decisions made in leadership, in the church, in the back room, in the government, in their prayer closets, and even things spoken in their bed chambers.

You will see a series of events that will now take place as a result of these decisions. So this is the time to make a stand. Who is on the Lord’s side, and who will do my bidding? Who will declare my word and my truth, even in the midst of greedy, lusty, and selfish men? Who will stand for my name? These things aren’t about a person’s reputation. These things are about truth. Who will you serve? Who will you be willing to lay down your lives for, will be the question. I am waiting and I already know what lies ahead. So choose now! Stand now! Make sure you choose carefully.

Are you willing to lay down your life for what you believe? If you do, I will defend you. I will hold you with my right hand, for I am your deliverer, says the Lord. Do not fear the things that are about to come upon this world, because if you have made the right choices you have nothing to fear. If you will make the right steps, I will lead you and direct your life. But you must hearken diligently and not make decisions based upon your flesh, but hear me and obey me as you follow me --- you will walk in realms of protection and move along to accomplish extraordinary tasks. So things that may seem impossible will be accomplished for My glory. So allow me to move you forth and instruct you as these months move ahead.

In this month (and beyond) you will see events occur that will astonish you. The earth is in travail which is why so many things are occurring right now, but there are also plans within groups, sleeper cells, and evil plans that are in the making.

The government should be in watch mode, but they will be going with business as usual and will not see the signs coming--- for great upheaval.
There will be more violent evil winds and earthquakes as well.

Intercessors, watchmen, I am calling you this hour to watch---–to pray. Leaders in the church-----it is your kingdom responsibility to move and act; make a stand. You must be ready and prepared for what is coming, but the only way that you will be prepared is to be before My presence.

Take necessary steps, make and implement plans for water and food. Crisis care and crisis management will be needed as you work together, as you pray together, as you move forward together, and much will be accomplished as you follow My leading and My directions.

Ecclesiastes 9:11 New Living Translation “I saw something else under the sun. The race isn't [won] by fast runners, or the battle by heroes. Wise people don't necessarily have food. Intelligent people don't necessarily have riches, and skilled people don't necessarily receive special treatment. But time and unpredictable events overtake all of them.”
Ecclesiastes 9:11 God’s Word Translation “I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn't always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn't always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don't always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time.”

Prophetic Insight (Alert)
I had the following three vivid visions:
1. I saw an explosion near a very mountainous region –I saw a thick cloud, and after the cloud began to clear, part of the mountain was crumbling, literally, by the power of the force of what had just happened.
2. I saw several men dressed in white protective gear with containers pouring something in the water. I don’t know if it was a result of something already bad in the water or what.
3. It was very rainy outside, and I saw several officials and men dressed with suits and trench coats with umbrellas getting out of cars, and someone began to shoot through the crowd, and everyone was ducking to the ground—I did not see who was firing or if anyone or if several were hurt. (I felt real trouble in my spirit).
Please pray around these visions because the implications are serious. Since our last update Seattle Washington picked up a suspected terrorist (June 24th). Alaska had two earthquakes, magnitude approx. 7.4, and Philippines suffered tropical storm, Meari, and a typhoon-–these were all on our watch list. (So it is important that we pray.) A special thanks to those who send supportive info to pray about---we ask that Intercessors from Europe, Asia, South American, Africa etc. --- EVERY KINDRED, NATION, and TONGUE --- pray! Calling all intercessors!!!

Final Note: Read over the word of the Lord for June because much will become clearer and clearer within the next 3 months. These words will overlap even going back to April 2011. The following is a very powerful word given to my husband, Apostle Miles Ford, which adds dimension to the words you have just read. Bless you.

The Challenge Ahead – Apostle Miles Ford
It is my view that the best of what the church will give to the world is about to be revealed over the next 2 and one half years. As citizens of the kingdom of God, we know that Jesus Christ is the best that the church can give to the world. As we live our lives in obedience, discipline, and power that is totally submitted and consecrated before Him, this is what makes us successful as we present Christ and manifest the power of His kingdom before all men. There are so many opportunities that are about to be presented for God’s people to come forward and shine. With answers to very complex events and sudden changes that will, to those not knowing and trusting in Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, be insurmountable. At each level and through each crisis, God has in advance given the wisdom, grace, anointing, finances and leadership as well as many other resources so that His will plan and purpose is fully accomplished and carried out.
The challenge aspect of what I feel will go down as the church’s finest hour is, unfortunately, what will be known as a great time of turmoil and trouble. I believe that the events of July will mark what is a total change in mindset for us as a nation. It will be a great all-hands-on-deck signal for the church, and during that time, we will be faced with a lot of angry, misguided, and untrusting people on all sides.
There is such a small window of time for preparation for those in the body of Christ to prepare and position ourselves for these coming challenges. There are those to whom God is releasing wealth in this hour from various avenues. These will be the most challenged of all because they will hold what I call a ‘Joseph key’ for many to whom God has ordained that they sustain and minister to during this season. In my estimation the church should be already shifted into a crisis-aftermath mode. We should have a sound answer to the question of: If the U. S. dollar collapses and loses it’s worth and value, how will I conduct the business of the kingdom and what then will be our method of currency to accomplish God’s plan? Also, if there is a food or water crisis or shortage, are we still able to function for a reasonable period of time?
This is the time that the church must listen to and study very carefully the words, and prophetic warnings, of its prophets and apostles, whether it concerns earthquakes or social unrest. For those who don’t, they will be left scrambling for answers in a time of challenges that they will then be staring in the face. We must not expect that the greatest harvest of souls that has ever been reaped coming into God’s kingdom would come without event. This time of challenge will also be a time of change and most importantly a time for God’s champions to arise and enter the fields that are ripe unto harvest to work and win souls for the Glory of God. “Except a corn of wheat fall unto the ground and die it abides alone but if it dies it brings forth much fruit.” (John 12:24) Sometimes we need to give up life (as we know it) and be willing to sacrifice, so that much fruit can be realized for God’s greater purpose.

Small Straws In A Soft Wind by Marsha Burns -- 6/28/11

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns -- 6/28/11:
In a vision I saw lines being drawn vertically and then horizontally to create a grid. Lord, what does this mean? And, I heard Him say, "The enemy has launched an attack to isolate, alienate, and divide. Refuse to give him any ground. He will create offenses individually where he can because it is easier for him to pick My people off one at a time than it is for him to defeat those who stand together. Set a watch, stand your ground against this attack, and be quick to forgive, says the Lord.
Luke 11:17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them: "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls.'

Divinely Positioned To Receive?

Divinely Positioned to Receive!

Are you divinely position to receive?  Often we wonder why we are not receiving God's promises in our lives and others seem to have all the blessings.  We need to take time with Father and see if we are doing that which the Lord would have us to do.  Are we walking in obedience to His Word in accordance to God's government?  Are we doing the best of our ability to win that husband or wife to the Lord?  Submitting to one another in the fear of God. Are we loving as Jesus loved and putting the Kingdom of God before all else in our lives? Doing these things will position us where are able to receive from the Lord.  

In His Kingdom are exceeding great and precious promises and we are to appropriate them by faith, stand on them, and claim them as ours, for they were paid for in full by the blood of Jesus.  We are to walk in His fullness and out of it give to others. 

Lately I have seen much rebellion from one in the body of Christ.  Over years they have fed into this spirit and the jezebel spirit is manifesting as is the spirit of anti Christ.   They had and still do have such potential in Christ but the death of self needs to come and they need deliverance from these spirits. Sincere repentance is need in their life. The more one feeds on rebellion the more they will be taken over by the enemy.  Doors need to be shut, and repentance needs to come for this one to truly be restored to their rightful place in Christ.  You see beloved, we can toy too long with sin and sooner or later it will bite.  We cannot partake of the Lord's table and the table of devils. Only in taking up our cross and following Him will we find true happiness.  

Kingdom living means being seated in Heavenly Places in Christ and by faith appropriating ALL that this means.  We cannot sit there and dangle our toes in the world and think we will receive from the Lord.  Sin only looks good for a season and so are its pleasures.  If you have come short of the glory of God, repent and He will forgive you your sin.  Decide once and for all to come out of the world and walk faithfully with Father each day.  If you repent of your sin, He is faithful and just to forgive you from your sin and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. 

Position yourself with a listening ear to Father and let Him show you where you are at today.  Then you will be Divinely positioned to receive all that the Lord has for you.  His exceeding great and precious promises are yours by faith so reach out to Him today and receive. The Kingdom of God and His government is one of Divine order.  Let Father restructure your life today. Open your eyes and see that the Kingdom of God is within you.  32And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?  Luke 24:32
The Love Of The Father, The Love Of A Dad
by Patricia Hamel

I am ever grateful to God for the love of my earthly Dad who went to be with the Lord in February 2007. He was eighty one years young and on fire for Jesus till the morning he went home. He loved the Lord and the scriptures say that there are not many fathers but he was one of them. As I came down stairs and saw his photo today I said I must write this for those that have not been as fortunate in having a Dad.

My Dad and Mom were both saved the same day and subsequently a short time later received the baptism of the Holy Ghost on the same day. They did everything together and their marriage was one that was peaceful, and loving. The month after he went home they would have been married for sixty one years.

What stands out most about Dad is that he lived by example and lived what he preached. He was a true man of God.

There is something I would like to share with you. Even though you may not have had an earthly Dad or had one that was less than perfect there is one Father in Heaven that will love you through thick and thin.

One day I arrived at my parents door for a visit and on the door being opened both my parents were standing there. I had gone through a very difficult season and when I saw my Dad I started to cry and I just ran and threw myself into his arms and Mom stood beside him. I sobbed my little heart out and my Dad just held me and kept saying its okay its going to be all right. He was so kind and held me just like Jesus would have done. You see that day, Jesus was standing there in my Dad and truly it was Him comforting me and using my Dad to do so. I dried my eyes and in no time I was fine and Mom and Dad were so very kind.

I am sharing this to let you know that there is nothing quite like the Father's love. He will take you and love you, and comfort you when you need to be comforted. No earthly man can comfort you like the love of the Father. Jesus is standing here today and just waiting for you to come running to Him. Those of you that are hurting and in pain, come running to Him. Those of you that are brokenhearted and so disappointed come running to Him. There is nothing quite like the Fathers love. He will put a bandade on your hurts and wounds and heal you from the inside out. It will be a healing of your heart and a healing of the memories. Jesus is calling you to come to Him today and He will heal you every where you hurt.

God gave me a poem in 2000 and to prepare me for the time that my Dad would go home. I did not know then that 2007 was a year of completion and one that seven years later (also God's number) the Lord would take Him home. He was well up till the morning he died and had a few twinges in his chest. He told mom that he thought he should go to the hospital but said he would not drive and that they would take a taxi instead. He went into the bathroom to get ready and then called to out to Mom, call 911. She did and while on the phone with them he died on his knees the way he lived.

I used to tell my Daddy that I would preach his funeral and he told me that I would be too tearful to do so. smile. God gave me His grace to preach Dad's funeral and do the grave site service. We were able to lift our hands heavenward and in seeing the casket lowered to the ground worship the Lord. I knew a few there did not understand that Dad had not died but just changed addresses and gone home. He used to tell me that when he died he was not dying but only changing addresses. Thank you Jesus for the treasured memories.

Love in Jesus,

The Finishing Touch

The Master finisher reaches out
with His nail scarred hand and
applies the finishing touch,
to the now older man who has served
Him so well, and has learned to
lean on Him much.
Each final stroke He makes, very
patiently, He cuts and chisels and
strokes and polishes each little flaw.
Ever so tender is the masters touch,
He misses not one of the flaws.
He stops and looks at it lovingly
his vessel He has formed.
Patiently, carefully He puts it
Until that future morn.
When one last time,
In picking it up,
His reflection He now does see.
It's time now to bring My
vessel home, to My Fathers house
in Eternity.

Write What God Is Giving To YOU!

Write What God Is Giving To YOU!

God has given many of you literary gifts and you have the pen of a ready writer. It is time now for the scribe to write that which Father has placed in your heart by His Spirit. It is time now to take our your pen and write. The Spirit of God has deposited much in many of you and together you make a whole body. Take out your pen and write what the Spirit of God is giving you. For many it will be a fresh word in season. A new step of faith for those who have not written before, but I say to you take out your pen and write.

The ministry of the scribe is in My Word else you would not have the Word of God in written form today. Your words never have the pre-eminence over the written word but they are with grace and seasoned with salt and straight arrows that will go to the heart. Many of mine are so very gifted and yet fearful to post publically. Many of you have been put down but I say to you, rise up and write that which I have given to you. You have the pen of a ready writer so write and I shall give you more, says the Lord.

My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Psalm 45:1

Word of the Lord June 2011 Prophet Phyllis Ford

Word of the Lord June 2011

by Prophet Phyllis Ford
Arlington, Texas

June 1, 2011                   
Prophetic Insights: The Lord begins to tell me about this month, June 2011 being the time when corrupt world systems would begin to see the hand of God’s judgment. We are beginning to see the spirit of Behemoth and the spirit of Leviathan (two distinctive manifestations found in the book of Job chapters 38-41) and how these hidden enemies to the kingdom are about to be uncovered and identified so that the people of God would understand the events that are about to occur. We will also see that which is coming into place that the Kingdom of God has established through proper alignment. We will also see these hidden enemies of the Kingdom of God and how they will try to operate in the so-called fulfillment in the Spirit of Anti-Christ’s plan. But we know that God’s plan has already been completed because of the finished work of Calvary.  But just like the judgment of God is dealing with these enemies now, they will be dealt with also in the future. There are certain systems and institutions that have held people in bondage through their philosophies; and in the midst of being discouraged men have looked to these systems for the remedies that only God could give them.

I want to be careful not to use absolutes, but we will see how certain governments, religious orders, financial systems, secret societies and organizations that reflect the greed of men and faulty leadership were beguiled (taken over) and changed into this spirit (Behemoth) that God revealed to Job. These self-righteous characteristics were upheld by their own conscience through a deception that they were doing the right things for people. Now these systems are about to face the consequences of their own actions. It is the control and rebellion of a type of self-righteousness. And now as a result of their own selfish undoing they will not be able to stand.

Yes it will affect us-----but the Kingdom of God will become stronger and greater as the Kingdoms of the world will be more uncovered and begin to lose their grip. Leviathan is the voice of the lies and deception that these systems were able to use to lure and seduce the people to become what they are today. Not only does this season play an important part in the beginning to judge these faulty systems that our nation has relied upon, but we are about to see those who are responsible individuals. It will also uncover how these things in the future give way to the end-time deception. Matthew 24:24 “ For there shall arise false Christ’s and false prophets and shall show great signs and wonders in so much that if it were possible they shall deceive the very elect.”

But God has a plan; it is in His infinite manifold wisdom. We are about to see (in this future) a joining of sides or allegiances: That which stands for God and that which stands for Satan, that which is truth and that which is false. We will see the aligning of the manifested sons of God and the spiritual forces that will oppose the work of the kingdom. You will also see the aligning of the Sheep nations and Goat nations---Godly men and women and Ungodly men and women. Remember, this is still just the beginning.

The following is the word that the Lord began to speak to me over a three day period:

“This is the time that you will begin to see systems fail because of evil men. These are systems that many have put all their trust in up till now, and they will begin to fail because these systems have been operating in avarice, greed with loyalties only to themselves. Now from the federal banking systems to government entities, religious institutions, and other financial systems—you will see the signs and evidence that there will be major trouble ahead.

This trouble is coming because of pride, vanity, and the selfishness of men’s hearts. The time has passed and the consequences of their actions and the trying of these things have now come before me. 

So look to me, my people, because this is the turning point and time where the actions of men are being weighed and the ultimate resolves are taking place for those who have refused to change. And I am removing my hand, and now they will see whether these things will stand or fail. For I have been longsuffering, and there is a process that must take place for order to be restored in the timing that I have prepared. Know that I am about to allow financial collapse to come and I will provide for my people in the very midst of it by transferring financial resources and through the reestablishing of new systems, so that order can be restored out of the chaos that has come upon the land.

These systems have caused their own demise because of  the concern for their own interest and not for the welfare of the people who have worked hard, invested their time, money, and support thinking that they would be protected under their covering. I am building My house, says the Lord, and that process and renewal will not be at the expense of the people, but it will be the example by which the Kingdom of God has established all things before the foundations of the earth and that which I will establish will be brought forth by My hand and administered by My way. So hear my words and understand that the failing of these systems is a necessary process to the fulfilling of the establishment of My triumphant heavenly kingdom.

( “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying The kingdom of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ; and He shall reign forever and forever.”) (Revelation 11:15)

Know that this is a process, and many things will give way to that which I am establishing by my own hand. So open your eyes and see that these things are coming to past because of the present turning of events that have occurred. This month will mark several things: there will be attacks of terrorism--you must be on guard because the retaliation of evil men that awaits this land. You must prepare in prayer to stand against such attacks. London and other parts of Europe will be under attack as well. These will begin to occur to instill more fear amongst people.

Stay on watch and stay on guard. And I will set ways of escape even in the darkest of days and provide protection and peace. More volcanic eruptions and great shakings will continue to occur even as the evil winds that have come upon the land. These are signs and warnings of the time and the hour, even that which my word has spoken.  Cry out before Me. Cry out for truly the season has come where men’s sins have come up before me. I have prepared my lineage of priest who will cry between the porch and the altar. Many shall be changed and many will be spared. I have appointed those who I have set over the nations and kingdoms to root out, to pull down, to destroy, to throw down, to build, and to plant.

Men’s hearts will continue to be uncovered and their ways will be made visible before the people. Some will say, “You mean he was a part of this all along?” and “She was a part of these things?” and people will see and they will know what was going on behind closed doors. Take heed this hour because I am calling my people to pray, to build, to follow, to strengthen and encourage the people, because so many are fainting because of the travail of the land that is before them now. “But they that wait upon Me shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; and they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31.)

Wait upon me in my presence and I will speak to you words of wisdom and strengthen you, and you will know what to do and how to do it. The patterns have been already written in the heavens and the time for implementation is at hand, and I am raising up those in this hour who will lead in my grace and humility to love the unlovable, to give hope to those who are without hope, and to set free and teach those who have been struggling so that they may fulfill my will in this hour. So prepare your hearts and mind for the work ahead, that you may go forth to bring healing and light to the nations. My restoration will come to prepare them in the new life---in the new time to come.

So look to me, the author and the finisher of your faith, and I will change and turn that which must be removed so that which is to come will bear fruit. “Except a corn of wheat falls into the ground and die it abides alone; but if it die. It will bring forth much fruit.” (John 12:24.) Remember, these are the very words that my life was established upon and that will be the order from which new life will come.

Look for me, for I will be seen in the word leading you, guiding you, helping to understand what is happening now. Look for me, for I will speak to you even through situations that are going on in your relationships—and show you things that you must deal with in order to overcome obstacles in your life right now.

Look for me: I will be found in a cloud the size of a man’s hand---moving forward to set your portion of provision in place. Look to me, because I am your Peace even in the midst of trouble and I am moving forth in the earth to set things in place for Kingdom advancement and power in this hour. All things will come into a day of assessing the works and the motives of men’s actions.

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 Amplified “All has been heard; the end of the matter is: Fear God (revere and worship Hi, knowing that He is) and keep His commandments, for this is the whole of man (the full, original purpose of his creation, the object of God’s providence, the root of character, the foundation of all happiness, the adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun) and the whole (duty) for every man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it is good or evil.”  


The Spirit of Behemoth working together with the Spirit of Leviathan*   

by Prophet Phyllis Ford

Behemoth   Transliterated word ---B@hemowth strongs number—(0930) Egyptian origin  Definitions: extinct dinosaur, most definitions denotes great or vast beast, exact meaning unknown, some translate as an elephant or hippotamus. Root-(0929) beast, cattle, animal, wild beast. Feminine. B’hemoth- Egyptian derivative---p-ehe-mau (water-ox)

In the book of Job, Behemoth was the wild beast and Leviathan was the sea creature. The Lord showed me that these are historic biblical creatures that are manifesting themselves in this present day are spiritual forces that are in direct opposition to the advancement of the Kingdom of God. Ephesians chapter 6:12 tells us “That 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.” These are two distinctive types that were rooted in the spirit of pride and self-exaltation. In the book of Daniel, Zechariah, Ezekiel, and Revelations, there are forces upon the earth that were represented in God’s word as animals. These animal images were symbolic of nations, leaders, and spiritual forces of the enemy in operation—having to do with the temperament, rank, rule and motives of men.

God emphasizes the importance of his size. Behemoth represents the primal monster of the land as Leviathan was considered the sea creature of the sea. He was considered fearless and seemingly powerful. (His description: An immense creature having a thick and square head, large mouth, small eyes and ears, thick heavy body, he lies under the shady tree, loves the marsh, swamp.)

It symbolizes a strong oppressive and controlling force (i.e.) a religious system--trying to usurp the growth of many, causing spiritual blindness, hindering spiritual growth (arrested development) through a polluted doctrine. It is deceptive and rebellious. He lives in a marsh-like environment denoting uncleanness. It is a passive animal, stubborn animal—who literally throws his weight around. It is carnal (his strength is in his loins). (No sexual restraint—pornography, human trafficking and various lifestyle perversions).

It represents proud men (or women):

·         who think that they have the power to rule men’s lives.

·         who are involved in major occult activity and satanic cults as well as secret societies.

·         who live to satisfy their own purposes financially and develop their own growth and development to attain their goal.

This system of pride can easily move into governmental control and corrupt judicial systems. Leviathan carries the verbiage and lies for these prideful men and their operations. In the church it sets up a system –that is supposed to be a righteous institution but instead its doctrine denies the power of God and exalts the establishment of its own dogma. It can be the power behind governmental systems of dictatorship, communism, and the like. The most important thing to understand is the spirit of Leviathan works with the spirit of Behemoth –working together to come against the Kingdom.

Consider the word strength which comes from Behemoth (Job 18:7, Job 18:12, Job 40:16):

{loins> appetites & desires –virility—void of temperance

{muscles>  reliance upon man’s own might, rebellious, stubborn

{belly> gluttony, stubbornness, selfishness, greed, lazy, refusal to serve, selfish—greed.

When man refuses to acknowledge the Lord in all areas of His life—His self-centered approach to life leads him to deception. Gods shows two kinds of creatures: one is stubborn, lazy and defiant----the other is slick, cunning, one who lies and is crafty, and a lying spirit. The word Leviathan means (twisted, coiled), will deceive others to believe a thing.

The passive carnal nature of the spirit of Behemoth is subtle, denial of the truth. (The appearance may not reveal its’ true characteristics, but if confronted—it will crush it’s victim). It believes that it has the right to do a thing, and it will work the law in its’ favor to justify why it is doing what it is doing. That carries a statement; saying, I really don’t need God.

The active carnal nature of the spirit of Leviathan is active; it strikes it’s victim quickly—very maneuverable. It wants to rule over its victim. It will influence, seduce, and manipulate the emotions of individuals to lure them into their thinking and becoming one of their victims or followers.

There is a direct connection between the financial collapse in this nation and the pride of some in the banking system. These have not operated in the best interest of their customers and the common people. Although the banking system says they act in the best interest and welfare of the people, their actions show a clear pattern of greed and abuse. The recent housing crisis could serve as a strong example of this.  Some have operated this system in a way that has not represented the best interest of their customers, but have only looked out for themselves.

The spirit of Behemoth will blame and will contend with God and build support around their cause and at the same time claim to do things for the good of the people. It will form its’ own governments, make its own rules—it will take over systems of government to promote its own rebellions and claim that it is the wisdom and policies that the country needs. It will imprison you in its red tape and bureaucracy in the face of its own agenda. The spirit of Behemoth is not necessarily smart –but it’s big. The spirit of Leviathan who is the brains of the operation can easily convince the people who are discontented with the status quo.

How to overcome:

·         It must be confronted. It uses fear and intimidation, but in the face of real faith—it cannot stand.

·         “It is written…” is very effective. The word of God can be a strong weapon, especially    2 Corinthians 10. It comes against the illusion of the mind that has been taken captive by pride and deception.

·         The blood of Jesus, because it counteracts every lie and uproots the foundation of deception. The finished work of Calvary destroys the work of the devil

·         Walking in resurrection life takes up where the finished work ends and begins to reveal the power of the victory which will be the final blow to the enemy’s camp in this end-time battle.

·         True humility, forgiveness, self-less love, and sacrifice can also combat these demonic entities.

·         Through fasting and prayer (this kind) were dealt with by Daniel’s repentance for the people and the nation.

Stumbling Over Old Rocks by Ron McGatlin

Stumbling Over Old Rocks
By Ron McGatlin
In the past two or three weeks there has been an air of dissatisfaction troubling the peaceful waters of spiritual life around and within at least some, if not many, of God�s people. Something is going on that is bringing change in the spiritual realm and into our natural lives. The peaceful flow of the supernatural river has become turbulent. There is a roaring current rising in the river of God. Debris is being dislodged and carried away by the raging river. Flesh and disorder have challenged the glory of God and hearts have grown dull of Spirit light.
Intense prayer in the Spirit is unleashing supernatural presence of God and releasing the power of God to swiftly carry His people to greater heights of life in the kingdom of God. The challenges and disruptions have come to expose the need within us to breakthrough more debris from the past and move into the kingdom supernatural life.
Stumbling blocks are being removed.
There has been a stumbling over past hardened beliefs or more accurately un beliefs.
In recent decades, the lukewarm dead religion was blasted with powerful works and manifestations of the supernatural power of God. Since the turn of the twentieth century onward through the last decade the century (the 1990s) a massive wave of supernatural power was poured out by the Spirit of God. Powerful revivals and renewals swept across the world.
Two major factions arose against the awesome move of God.
First, the enemy stirred the theologians of the lukewarm era and they became militantly opposed to the move of God. They brought forth strong opposition discrediting the value of the great work of God taking place by His Spirit. This planted the first big stumbling block consisting of hardened rocks of belief in the hearts of people, belief that the move was false and not from God.
Secondly, the enemy stirred many leaders involved in the move into merchandising the glorious supernatural kingdom reality coming forth from God. They built mega churches, ministries and fortunes from the supernatural power flowing from God. Mixture of darkness in some of the leaders and their followers of the great revivals became evident and was severely detrimental to many people.
These things have created severe stumbling blocks in the minds and hearts of people. The pure holy presence of God coming forth in gatherings bringing powerful manifestations of joy in the supernatural reality of God is greatly hindered by the stumbling over the hardened rocks of doubt and unbelief.
The experience of truth can remove our rocks of unbelief and doubt.
The kingdom of God is a supernatural spiritual rule over all creation � all things natural and spiritual are to be under the feet of One King. The word of the kingdom is the seed of the manifesting or coming forth of the kingdom of God (rule of God). The gospel of the kingdom that Jesus taught, preached and demonstrated on earth is the good news of the absolute rule of God on earth as it is in heaven. Heaven is the Spirit realm, the place of the throne of God from which all authority over all creation emanates.  
Supernatural kingdom on earth is brought forth by the Spirit manifesting God�s authority and rule on earth. The kingdom comes forth on earth in the manifest presence of God. Where the manifest presence of God is, the kingdom of God is brought forth. God makes Himself known (reveals Himself) in His manifest presence in and among the saints of God. Supernatural means greater than natural, above and beyond natural. God is supernatural and where His manifest presence is there will be supernatural life reality and activity.
The whole Bible, both Old Testament and New, is filled with many written accounts of the manifest presence of God causing supernatural events and works.
After Jesus was baptized and the Spirit of God descended upon Him and remained, supernatural works and events were evident wherever He went among people who believed in Him as Son of God. Jesus demonstrated the supernatural kingdom of God by the supernatural works that He did.
Where Christ Jesus is, supernatural works take place. Christ abiding in His people by the Holy Spirit is the potential for the presence of God to manifest supernatural works of God demonstrating the kingdom of God. Where believers gather together in unity the presence of Christ and the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead is present. That presence of God becomes manifest when the people enter into the spiritual realm together in unity.
The Bible speaks of this as being �in the Spirit�. One person alone can be in the Spirit and experience God�s supernatural reality. Yet, when two or three or more or gathered in the Spirit, there can be a Spirit atmosphere among them � a glorious supernatural manifest presence of Spirit God. In this atmosphere, supernatural occurrences and works are abundant. Holy angels (ministering spirits) working with the people create a present reality of the kingdom of God in action.
Some of you have experienced this supernatural reality and some of you have not yet truly done so. In the past, Barbara and I have been privileged to experience supernatural manifestations in the presence of God changing us and the people present. We have experienced the kingdom of God in action.
In addition, through the website I have heard from thousands of people over the years that have experienced the supernatural manifestation of the presence of God bringing the kingdom of God in action among God�s people. Lives have been changed, addictions overcome, diseases healed and the character and nature of Christ brought forth in people around the world. Thousands upon thousands saved and filled with the Spirit as the result of the presence of God coming forth and making His ministers flames of fire and sending them out to the masses spreading the fire of the presence of God � the kingdom of God in action.
It is my opinion that the current dissatisfaction and disorder of the past few weeks is directly related to the need for the full manifest presence of God in house meetings, business meetings and every place in which believers gather.
Individually and personally walking in the Spirit is awesome and gathering in the manifest presence of a group in unity is literally heaven on earth. The kingdom is spiritual heaven coming to natural earth.
Intense Prayer
Barbara and I have been launched into an intense season of prayer together as one seeking to bring forth the pure and holy supernatural presence of God pouring the light of Christ into every gathering and connection. Our hearts are crying out for God to pour out His Spirit and supernatural love and power beyond measure one more time in our lives. We began Tuesday, May 31, 2011 to break away from all activity and come together in intense prayer at 1pm every day as the Lord leads. Our hearts are freshly knit together and broken in desperation for the perfect presence of God to pour out again in and through us into every connection and gathering of our lives.
 Jesus and His children are coming through. Truly the kingdom is at hand.
Keep on pursuing love. It never fails
and His kingdom never ends.
