DREAM OF THE DEVOURER by Kriston Couchey

DREAM OF THE DEVOURER by Kriston Couchey

I Had a dream, in it my dog who is a wonderful protector of the family was fighting off a devouring wolf, but alone my dog could not defeat it and when the wolf got past my dog to me I looked at it and saw the face of the evil spirit behind it. I heard,"You must separate the spirit behind the devourer from it." I looked at the wolf and said" I cut you off" the face of the demon on the wolf went from a glowing light red power to dark and it ran away."

This is the devouring fire of the west and in particular Colorado. There is a demonic force behind this fire that has been given license to burn and destroy, the angels (protector dog)are not going to stop it, men must cut of the demonic force that is bringing destruction by realizing the spiritual force behind it and take authority over it...sending it packing. What is the kingdom for but to reign over wickedness?

Discipleship Is Not a Dirty Word

Discipleship Is Not a Dirty Word

Endure, Persevere, Persist

Donna Raphael


to remain firm under suffering or misfortune without yielding

to persist in a state, enterprise, or undertaking in spite of counterinfluences, opposition, or discouragement

to remain unchanged or fixed in a specified character, condition, or position
(definitions from Merriam Webster)

You have advanced into enemy territory, but have come to the place that you are at a “stand still”. This is not a position of weakness, but of strength and resolve.  Do not be troubled or impatient regardless of your difficulty or suffering of the present time for the Lord is bringing you through the rest. Set your face like flint and stand firm holding your ground. Trust in the Lord and the power of His might to complete the thing.  You shall come forth triumphantly giving all the glory to the Lord.

Ephesians 6:

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For 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.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Praying For The Body of Christ

Praying For The Body of Christ

All over the globe in each and every nation there are those that love Jesus.  There are those that are faithful in serving Him.  We need to pray for the body of Christ as there are many needs everywhere.  Sometimes one can have tunnel vision and not see further than their own circle of family and friends but God wants to extend your vision.  See a little further and know that your brothers and sisters are going through battles also.  When one member of the body suffers all suffer. In the natural if one hurts a part of their body it tends to hinder how the rest of the body functions.  It is the same in the spiritual.

 Let us pray for God to strengthen His children and use them as bright lights in this world.  The fields are white to harvest and together we will see them come into the Kingdom of God. 

Father we ask that you strengthen each member of the body of Christ today.  Pour in fresh oil and wine.  Lift up the feeble hands that hang down and give them renewed vision of you.  Let them know that you have given them a purpose for living and a destiny to fulfill.  Let intercessors arise that will pray for the nations.  Let the hearts of your children be uplifted today.  Fill them with your love, joy and peace and let them be as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves.  Position them for your glory.  Let each one know that the most important thing is their relationship with Jesus.  You are calling your bride to come to maturity.  Together we will complete the work you have called us to do.  We ask this all in Jesus name. Amen.

26 And if one member suffers, all the parts [share] the suffering; if one member is honored, all the members [share in] the enjoyment of it. 1 Cor. 1:26 (AMP)

Out Of The Ashes

 Out Of The Ashes
by Donna Raphael

I AM lifting you up out of the ashes says the Lord.  You have been in a low place of mourning and distress and have humbled yourself before Me and man. Through it all you have not forsaken Me nor lost faith in Me even though you have not understood all the pain and loss.  The lofty of this world have come against you to hold you down.  They have devised great plans using great means to keep you down in a place of poverty and depression.  You are of yourself weak and of meager means with no way to overcome. But now I Am come to break the bonds that hold you down.  It is I the Lord God Almighty Who lifts you up and out of the ashes.  No more shall My chosen be tormented by those mighty and wise in their own flesh.  I Am once again setting up My weak and lowly ones to confound.  It is by My hand that this work be done and even suddenly. I have seen your plight and now take great delight in reversing your circumstances for you have greatly honored me even in the ashes.  Know that you are Mine,  and I shall lift you up and use you mightily for My glory.

Psalm 113(NIV)

7 He raises the poor from the dust

and lifts the needy from the ash heap;

8 he seats them with princes,

with the princes of their people.

I Corinthians:

26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

Prayer For London, England


Father we ask you to breathe on London, England.  During this time of the coming Olympics we ask Lord Jesus for an awakening and that your Spirit would stir London and its visitors to know you.  We ask Lord for your Spirit to draw man to yourself and for your Divine protection over those that are yours.  Build up the hedges that have been broken down through sin and bring a restoration to London.  Let hearts cry out to you, what must I do to be saved. In Jesus name.

30 And he brought them out [of the dungeon] and said, Men, what is it necessary for me to do that I may be saved?
31 And they answered, Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ [give yourself up to Him, take yourself out of your own keeping and entrust yourself into His keeping] and you will be saved, [and this applies both to] you and your household as well.  Acts 16:30-31 (AMP)

It Is Possible

Donna Raphael


There is something that you have been believing for that with man is impossible. It has seemed so overwhelming that your focus has been on how and why it is impossible. Today you change your focus.  Begin focusing on your Lord God and remember that with Him it is all POSSIBLE.  Don’t give up on the Lord for He will never give up on you.  Keep on believing for those family members or friends to be saved.  Keep on believing for the supply you need.  Keep on believing for that healing.  Keep on believing for that ministry door to open.  Whatever the promise of God to you, keep on believing for with Him it is all possible.

Matthew 19:
25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Judging The Prophetic Word


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

God wants His spiritual gifts operating in the body of Christ.  Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant: 1 Cor. 12:1 (NKJV)

There is a time to keep silent and a time to speak. The Lord has spoken to my heart that it is time to speak about this matter. We are admonished to judge the prophetic word after it has been spoken.  Many are posting prophetic words online and there is very little in the way of true prophetic accountability. This can be a dangerous thing especially if there are not those who will speak the truth in love after reading a prophetic word because of fear of man.  When the body of Christ comes together in corporate worship the prophetic word would be judged when given and the one giving the word would be held accountable. 
We are clearly told that the prophetic word will speak to men and that it will edify, exhort and comfort them. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. 1 Cor. 14:3

Many have had little teaching on this subject and just receive everything they read, some have never prophesied in the body of Christ where there is prophetic accountability.  People can and do make mistakes in their learning to prophesy and need to be teachable.  Also there are those that are putting out prophetic words of doom and gloom where one does not see Jesus in them as words are twisted, taken out of context and a mixture.  

The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of all true prophesy. When you read a word, take the time to read each and every word and ponder it.  Do not just take it to heart. Can you back it up with the Word of God. When in doubt put it aside and pray over it. God will in His time speak to you about it if you are willing to wait on Him.

God puts out a clear prophetic flow from a river of clean water. There is no mixture with God. If the one prophesying has a wounded heart they will prophesy out of that wounding. If they see God as a Father who is always angry because of their own troubled relationship with an earthly Father, yet unhealed  then they will prophesy accordingly.  

Years ago I recall being taught that the purity of a prophecy will depend on how close a relationship the one prophesying has with the Lord. 

God is speaking serious things to His children in this hour yet the mature prophetic person will speak from a pure prophetic flow. They will take time to wait on Him and out of that clean river of living water speak.  They will be walking a repentant walk.  It is so important when one prophesies that their heart is clean before the Lord and that they take time to make sure there is nothing between themselves and God. Also one needs to prophesy out of the unction of the Holy Ghost to be sure that it is from the Lord.
There are times in reading a word that one can see that the person putting out the word has sat there with their bible and then written out of what they have read, put it in their own words and labeled it as a prophecy.  

To whom is God speaking in a prophetic word?  Is it to His church?  The Lord loves His bride, His church and gave Himself for her.  It is a love relationship and He never belts His bride over the head and abuses her but He loves her and has laid down His life for her.  Is God speaking to someone who is unsaved or to Israel or another nation of the world.  We need to determine to whom God is speaking if it has not been made clear in the beginning. 

If you read a word and come away from reading it fearful, and void of any edification, exhortation and comfort and feel a sense of dread then there is a problem with the prophecy you are reading. Yes, God can lovingly correct you and show you things to come but they will NOT remove all hope from you. Christ gives you a future and a hope. 

Jesus said, My sheep know My voice and they will not follow another. Take time with the Lord and in doing so you will hear His voice.  Remember that the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of all true prophecy. 

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Rev. 19:10

Infinite Supply

June 12
Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"In [Christ] are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."

It is not that God gives us revelation into five, ten, one hundred,
or one thousand things. None of these "things" by themselves really
matter. Rather, He has placed all those "things" within Christ, and
reveals Christ to us. He will not reveal anything to us apart from
the Revelation of Jesus Christ. To possess the Son is to possess
all that pertains to the Son, for the Scriptures declare, "He who
did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how
shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?" (Romans

It is not that God desires to give us revelation into these many
things, but for us to have the Revelation of Jesus Christ. By
apprehending Him we will subsequently gain insight in those
"things." To seek revelation into the "things" apart from the
Revelation of Christ fails to give Christ the preeminence. We dare
not circumvent the knowledge of Him in the pursuit of "things,"
even spiritual things, for they are all summed up into Him.

Why Sit Here Until We Die?

Donna Raphael


II Kings:
3 And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?

The four lepers from our scripture found themselves in an extremely dire situation.  Indeed, they were suffering from a disease so greatly feared and little understood in their time that they are isolated outside the city gates.  Not only had they been exiled and isolated outside the bounds of society of the day, but their country was under attack by enemies.  So there they sat right in the middle of two seemingly horrible and impossible choices.  To go back into the city would certainly result in their death and to advance into the enemy’s camp did not seem to offer much better chances for survival.  But there finally came a moment in time when these lepers saw that if they didn’t do something to make a change in their circumstances they would surely die right where they sat.  So they decided to advance into the enemy’s camp.  Not only did the lepers’ decision end up saving them, but it also was used of the Lord to greatly bless and save those who had exiled and isolated the lepers!  What a turn-around!

Many of you find yourselves in a similar place today. You are in such stagnate situations that the very life is slowly and painfully being sucked out of you.  You are caught in this place, and because you have been as you are and where you are for so long you have given up hope.  The barrenness and hardness of your circumstances have put you in a place of famine.  Because the world sees you as a hopeless or maybe even worthless cause, you have come to accept this perception of you as the way it is with no hope of things ever changing.  But the Lord is sending His word to you today to encourage and strengthen you to move forward with Him. It is time for you to rise up in courage and faith in the Lord.  He is bigger than your circumstances and will help you out.  Just like the lepers you have to determine to move forward even if it means advancing into the enemy’s camp.  But as the lepers said, “Why sit here until we die?”  Choose to trust the Lord and live!

Deuteronomy 30:
19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

What Do We Do Now That We Have Left the System?

What Do We Do Now That We Have Left the System?

by Clay Sikes
Many have been called 'out of the systems of men' in various categories, from churches and ministries to business and banking. The systems of men are failing at an alarming rate, which begs the question, "Where do we go from here?" This universal inquiry besieges the masses, as many have sought 'home church' and Christian businesses as a possible solution to what has been left behind. For most, there is a recognition that though we have 'come out' physically, there is perhaps more that must come out of us. The wilderness has purpose.
The system is not only a structure organized my man, but also a mindset in each human being and one that takes years to adjust. That is why many so-called home churches have taken on the look and feel of a church, swapping the 'church room' for the 'living room.' Is wandering in the wilderness necessary? The very small company of Joshua and Caleb thought so.

We sense certain finality when we have departed the system; yet with time, there also remains an emptiness that interrupts those initial feelings of 'finality,' which carries with it the idea that there must be more, much more! The price of truly leaving the system is costly and somewhat daunting - the fullness of completion only comes after patience has had her perfect work. The Children of Israel wanted to return to Egypt when challenges came: they wanted the comfort and security that Egypt held, albeit as slaves.

Many 'called out' ones have returned, failing to realize that the wilderness experience had purpose. It is not enough to get delivered 'from;' we must get delivered 'to,' and here is where the rubber meets the road. Wandering, following the cloud and being fed manna requires extraordinary patience. Perseverance that ONLY God can produce is a required attribute, as this explains "many are called, few are chosen."

I encourage all who are 'out' of the system to "wait upon the Lord," as your wandering has a distinct destination - it is called the "Promised Land." You may feel disjointed, disconnected, discombobulated, and disfigured, but 'wait!' God will lead you with the cloud by day and by fire at night. He will feed you manna while you stumble and fall in the wilderness, but wait! Just before entering you will see the promise, and you will also see the giants, but it is yours - take it!

Jeremiah & Hananiah: Understanding the Prophetic Utterances (Differentiating Between the False from the True) By: Phyllis Ford

Jeremiah & Hananiah: Understanding the Prophetic Utterances (Differentiating Between the False from the True)
By: Phyllis Ford
Arlington, Texas

(Read Jeremiah chapters 27 & 28)
Everything is not known about Hananiah but during the time of his confrontation with Jeremiah, He was known as a prophet who spoke during that time about the existing social views. He was popular at that time in the royal courts because of the words that he released. Many times it was because of what he said in a message that carried “a certain popularity” because it responded to the sentiment of those hearing it. But was it accurate?

Prophesies about moral decline of the government, or even accountability of the church were not considered favorable. Even messages that stated there would not be a military victory and words that spoke of repentance were not considered a good word. But what really is a good word? Aren’t we looking for the truth? Aren’t we willing to hear what God has to say even if it means that we need correction or rebuke. 

 Hananiah: the issue was whether the Lord was about to deliver the nation from the Babylonian stronghold and allowing them to return to Judah. Hananiah declared that in two years the Lord would bring back to the temple all the vessels of the Lord’s House which Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon took away and carried to Babylon. (Jeremiah 28:3)

 Jeremiah: the issue was that the Lord said the people should remain at that time in captivity. It had a lot to do with the sin and that which was set upon them through their own disobedience. The Lord told Jeremiah to make a yoke and put it on his neck and declare that he had given the land into the hands of Nebuchadnezzar.  (Jeremiah 27:1-6)

Lord God Most High:  spoke the words clearly to His prophet Jeremiah. God’s words for the children of Israel had a redemptive purpose and He also made it clear that any other prophet contradicting those words that—He (God) did not say them nor did He send him. This was an important turning point for Israel and it was important that Israel knew His heart in this matter.

In chapter 28 we see a major confrontation take place, Hananiah stands before the court and speaks in the presence of all including Jeremiah, and says that the yoke of the King of Babylon has been broken, and within 2 years the vessels of the house of the Lord will be brought back from Babylon and the people will be released. These were the words that the people wanted to hear. Hananiah spoke out of the imaginations of his own heart.

Jeremiah began to say that if these things come to pass, (the words that were spoken by Hananiah,) “that if the prophet prophesied of peace when the word comes to pass then the prophet shall be known, and truly the Lord has sent him.”

Jeremiah was saying that if these words were from God and that Hananiah would be well-known and it would evidence that Hananiah was God’s prophet. Hananiah then approaches Jeremiah and breaks the wooden yoke off his neck.

Jeremiah begins to leave and just in that moment the word of the Lord comes to him and He says to all, that the Lord has placed a yoke of iron unto those nations, and that Hananiah has made the people trust a lie. Because the Lord said he has taught them rebellion. Hananiah died the same year in the seventh month.

Walking in the calling of a prophet carries a high level of accountability with God. Walking in the integrity of God’s standard is an important issue with Him. Samuel was a prophet who walked in God’s standard. Amos spoke words of coming judgment because of their sin and rebellion. There are many different types of prophets, major and minor: speaking into governments, into regions and lands, and people rich and poor. The fulfillment of assignments prepared for God’s prophets are vitally important, in this hour.

There is no time for competition and comparisons, each one should be specifically aligned and assigned for encouragement, for building the body of Christ, to uncover the evil works of principalities and powers, to be ready watchmen armed with God’s word and prayer and so much more. Souls are literally hanging in the balance. It is important many times that we must continue to pray and seek God as we hear from Him to get a full understanding of what’s being revealed. I have said before that if we speak things that God is not saying, then the error is in our hearing, or in our understanding because God can not lie.

The timing of a matter may also be a difficult thing to decipher because as prophets see events, visions, hear utterances, have dreams and begin to receive the “knowing” of a thing, many times it may seem like tomorrow but they may occur years away. As prophets, we must know what is our prophetic ministry, and whether the message being released is more of a long term or current day prophetic word. Our end time scriptures must be revealed to us by the Holy Ghost for us to have a clear understanding as to how to interpret them in our times today.

It is important that when we are assessing a word that we don’t get carried away with only what we want to hear. We also can’t act as if we have all the answers either. But it is quite alright to take the word and look very carefully to see if it lines up with scripture.  There are many questions that need to be answered concerning God's rhema words.

Do we want to hear truth? Are we looking for what we think are reasonable solutions to what is going in the word around us. In those days they felt that they should be able to work out a treaty agreement, two years, and they were to come out of that captivity. The Lord saw it as arrogance, err and rebellion. Isaiah 55: 8-9 clearly tells us that our thoughts are not God’s thoughts, nor our ways like His ways. Sometimes our perception of deliverance is skewed and the Lord is trying to reveal to us as to why we have found ourselves in the dilemma that we are facing. There are times that the Lord will send us down a path that seems to be different, unfamiliar to everyone but as time works into us His will all of problems that seems to be present become the promises that were being manifested and only God will get the glory for what has come to pass.

When we hear the word of the Lord does it turn our hearts towards God to receive? Does it encourage, build, and increase one’s level of faith and trust in the Lord. Do we look for a way to grow, to reconcile, and to the right resolutions. Does what we hear motivate us to pray, asking God to help us not make the same mistakes again. Is it confirmation to what you hear the Lord speaking to you? Does the word that we hear line up with the word of God? Is the truth of God’s word convince us, convict us or we able to differentiate what is culture, what is Christ’s, and what is crisis? Do we want to walk in His ways and His precepts?

These are very important questions that need to be asked even when determining true and false prophets. All these things should humble every prophet—because the words that proceed out of the mouth of a true prophet carries weight and is something to be considered.

My prayer is today:

Lord teach us to operate from a pure stream and not to prophesy out of imaginations of our own hearts. Let us walk in the integrity of Holiness, let the words that you place upon our lips represent you. Lord help us to keep, carry, and uphold your life and your light. We pray that it dispels darkness by the power of your glory. Lord, help us to hear clearly your words. We pray that in this hour of temptation that we don’t lead the people into a place of rebellion or a place of deception. Lord lead us into a greater understanding of the life of your words and what you are saying to us your people. Lord, you said in your words these words which I speak are spirit and life. Let us speak forth out of our mouths the sword of your truth that is able to cut through and cut away every evil in Jesus Precious Name, Amen.

My decree today is: 

Oh Lord God Most High!

May we be changed to image of your dear Son,

May we speak words of life, light, strength and truth to every kindred, nation and tongue.

May we hear your words of instruction, reproof, rebuke, correction because You Love us and these words can direct us, teach us and guide us through every storms.

May we awaken more and more each day and may our understanding increase that we may know the fullness of the purpose by which you have called us.

May we thrust out from the land, allow Jesus to teach us and launch out into the deep waters that we may catch a great draught of fish.

We speak to lying words and say you have no power over us.

We speak to the lies of confusion that comes from the root of Babel and Babylon and you have no power over us.

We speak to apathy, inertia, laziness, depression, and hopelessness you have no power over us.

We speak that every system of this world that is not rooted in Christ Jesus will not have power nor dominion over us, In Jesus Name.

John 6:63 “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”

Philippians 2:12-13 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Luke 1:51 “He has manifested His supreme strength. He has scattered those who were haughty in the thoughts of their hearts.” (WEY translation)

1 John 3:8 He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. (KJV ASV DBY WBS YLT)

John 3:21 “But he that practices the truth comes to the light, that his works may be manifested that they have been wrought in God.” (DBY YLT NAS)

Romans 8:18 “Why, what we now suffer I count as nothing in comparison with the glory which is soon to be manifested in us.” (WEY)

New Assignment has been released!

New Assignment has been released!
by Maryam Ziadat

While in the presence of the Lord this afternoon, I heard the Lord saying " Scrolls has been unfolded and new assignments has been given out" The Lord continue saying " My child, don't come with excuses of why you can't do what I am asking you to do! Don't tell me "Not now" Don't say "Until my daughter get married or until my son graduated or until I am done with school" My Child, NOW, is the time!
I am not going to give you more than you can bear. I am not going to send you somewhere without walking in front of you to prepare the way. I am not going to call you and not prepare you. When I am the one who is asking you, you will not lack anything for I will provide for all of your need!

My Child, If you say YES and obey me, I will take care of it all! you and your family will be completely covered and abundantly provided for! Take care of my business and I will take care of yours! Come to me and let your words be " Your will, oh Lord, not mine, here I am, send me".

Biblical perspective (Exodus 3 & 4)
New Assignment has been released! (The biblical perspective of this word) Exodus 3 & 4 (For more study if interested)

The Lord appeared to Moses and had an assignment for Him :
7 The Lord said, �I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. 8 So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey �the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. 9 And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. 10 So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt. Ex. 3:7-10

Moses, although been spoken to him by GOD, was not convinced and saw himself unworthy to this call : Ex. 3:11

11 But Moses said to God, �Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?�
The Lord would not send him if he would not protect and provide. God do this for every single one he sent!.
The Lord told Moses : Ex.3:12

12 And God said, �I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain. �
Moses, still not convinced, he represented his excuses of why he Cannot do what God asked him to do. ( Don't give God excuses) :

4 Moses answered, �What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, �The Lord did not appear to you�?� Ex. 4:4

10 Moses said to the Lord, �Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.� Ex. 4:10
13 But Moses said, �Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.� Ex. 4:13

But the Lord GOD said : Ex. 4:11

11 The Lord said to him, �Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.�

Beloved, remember, when the Lord is the one who is sending you and it is not your own thinking of your gifts or abilities, the Lord will put favor on you, protect you and provide for every single thing you may need (even things that you didn't think you will need :)). Trust HIM....Don't let him get angry with you like he did with Moses (Ex. 4 :14) TRUST HIM! Keep in mind that IT IS ALL HIM and we are the vessels!

I am calling forth my Samsons

I am calling forth my Samsons
By David MacDonald

Recently, whilst in prayer, I received a prophetic tongue from the Lord. In the interpretation, three times I felt the Spirit of God saying to me "I am calling forth my Samson's". The Lord shared how many of his warriors in the spirit have lost their strength through put downs, words by other people that have demoralised and discouraged, yet their hair is growing back. As they wait on the Lord they are regaining new strength and they shall rise up on wings like eagles. They shall arise and go forth and do great exploits for the Lord's kingdom.

You Are Not Alone

Donna Raphael


No matter the circumstances you find yourself in this day, the Lord wants you to know that you are not alone.  He is right there with you, right where you are. He will not leave or forsake you as friends and family may have done. Though the whole world may betray you, He will not abandon you even in your darkest hour.  He sees your heart and hears your heart cries.  He has every one of your tears accounted for and knows the measure of hurt that caused each one.  He is for you and not against you.  His words are sure and true.  Even though everything in the natural may appear to be lining up exactly opposite of His words to you, don’t be deceived and give up hope. He will surely see you through.  Take comfort in His arms, and trust Him with all that concerns you.

Psalm 56:

8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?
9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.
10 In God will I praise his word: in the Lord will I praise his word.
11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

A Prophetic Question: How Long?

A prophetic question: How long?
by  Henry Falcone

This early morning as I am waiting upon the Lord, the Holy Spirit prompted a question in me and then an explanation of why He asked me this question. The question begins with "how long?" Please pray over this prophetic question and explanation to see if you get a witness to it for our nation"

How Long?

I wonder how long so many preachers are going to  continue to preach about the Body of Christ reaching her destiny in this nation, when their is such a need for true and genuine repentance of the sin that is in the church that has left us powerless, sick and anemic? I wonder how long the prophets can prophesy over a city they are the city that is going to bring revival to our nation, when there is never a call for repentance? Look at our nation? Look at the sin in our lives? How long will it be before we see we have allowed the sin of allowing "foreigners" to minister before God and His Holy Things like Ezekiel saw in Chapter 44 and bringing idols into the House of God.

Yet these modern day man made preachers still want to preach about us reaching our destiny without holiness? Have they read 2nd Chronicles 7? how about up to the 14th verse. Look at our nation and what do you see? We say it is the sin of the ungodly that our nation is this way, no beloved it is the sin in the church our nation is this way. How long before our spiritual eyes are open to our condition?

The word of God says, "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God." Beloved,  We have forsaken our first love. We don't understand how far we have fallen away from the One true God.  How long before we Pastors and leaders will it take before we realize that we have quenched and shut down the Holy Spirit from operation in our church because He was to bring conviction of sin, righteousness and judgment. We want His gifts, His power and His blessings as long as we don't have to repent from our sins or even look that we have them.

Judgment begins in the house of the Lord? Where is the Holiness in any of our lives that reflect Jesus like the moon reflects the Glory of the sun. Where is His Glory that shadows are filled with it like Peter's was and people get healed just by walking in our shadow? How long will it be before we understand that we are to be Holy as He is holy?

Jesus warned us that the false prophets would arise in our day and say Peace, all is well, then sudden destruction. "Just fulfill your destiny? When 80% of Christian teenagers are engaging in premarital sex. Over 70 % of Christian marriages in this nation end up in divorce? How long will Pastors allow their worship leaders and team, go to the bars, the youth musicians smoking pot on Saturday and playing on Sunday? How long my people how long before the Priest will rise up and teach once again the difference between the Holy and the profane?

What I hear today being preached against sin is always directed to the unsaved, never to the saved. How long will it be before we the sin of Achen in the house of God, or the sin of Ballam? What about the sin of idolatry in the house of God? How long will it be we realize that we have forsaken our first love as in Revelation chapter 2? Yet it is time for these "modern day" preachers just preach about reaching our destiny? How long will this nation survive without RUE AND GENUINE REPENTANCE!

How long  can we continue as a church without us humbling ourselves as in Joel chapter 2 with fasting and weeping over our sin? How long before we recognize "we" the church in this nation have been bewitched like the church in Galatia dependent upon the flesh instead of the Holy Spirit?

How long will it be that we pray that God would give to each one of us the "true spirit of repentance or tear," that we would humble ourselves under the Mighty hand of God so He can lift us up. How long until we cry out to God to remove the pride and arrogance in our hearts that says, "I'm OK and your OK and we don't have any sin in us?

How long before we believe that the Word of God says if any man says, "he has no sin, he is a liar." Lord wake us up to our true spiritual condition in your church in this nation so we can turn to you while there is still time, so you can hear from heaven, forgive our sins and heal our Land. God that includes me, my family, ministry and all of us your body in this nation! Forgive our sins and heal our land. Church in America, HOW LONG? THE SPIRIT OF GOD SAYS TO YOU, HOW LONG? HOW LONG?

Just One Step Ahead

Donna Raphael


Now you shall see that though the way has seemed long and difficult, it has been the Lord leading and  keeping you....just one step ahead of the enemy.  Oh yes, you have followed hard after Him, and now you shall see just how His providence and hand have worked in your circumstances thwarting the enemy’s plots and schemes at every turn.  He has kept you just one step ahead all along the way.  Not only did that one step keep you just out of the grasp of the enemy’s traps and plans for evil against you;  but it has also kept the enemy in hot pursuit to his own demise.  Now the Lord will fully reveal the enemy’s ways of iniquity and deceitful plans against you, and He will also turn it all to your good.  You will even see the enemy caught in the very trap that was laid for you! 

Now stand still and see the salvation that the Lord has wrought on your behalf, for He has brought you forth just one step ahead!!!

Psalm 63:

7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
9 But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
