Outlast The Devil

Donna Raphael


Stand firm.  Do not back down.  Do not give up.  The enemy is throwing his full arsenal your way, but do not fear for God is with you.  Do not let the enemy deceive you, you are on the right path.  Your road may be a very hard one right now, and there may be enemy land mines at every turn, but it is the right way.  Don’t let the enemy convince you that just because its very difficult right now, you have missed God.  No!  The enemy knows that you are moving in God’s way and nearing your destiny and that is exactly why he has unleashed such an all out effort to stop you in your tracks.  Just don’t give up.  Keep  standing on those promises of God.  His word is true, and He is faithful Who hath promised.  You are very close to reaching the fulfillment of those promises.  Don’t give up!  Outlast the devil!

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;

Holy Uprising

Donna Raphael


I have called them for this time, and My holy fire burns in their spirits. They hear the shofar sounding for this is a time of great warfare, and these are My chosen ones. They shall be recognized only as unknowns seemingly coming forth from nowhere.  You may not know their names, but will you not perceive that they are Mine?  Will you not recognize that they have been in hard places alone with Me? They have learned of Me and My ways and My love through many years of deep and private fellowship.  They are My holy and anointed wilderness warriors, and now I shall begin to call them into the forefront of battle.  They will not proclaim their own names nor seek their own agendas. They will proclaim My Name and seek My Glory in all things.  Watch for them to come forth on heated battle grounds.  You will quickly recognize them as they fearlessly confront and stand for My Holy ways in all things.  They will raise My standard in the midst of the battlefields so that you My holy army may know where to gather and fight.  Yes, wherever My standard is raised there you will come and fight to turn back the forces that array against My ways and My people.  Be quick to see and recognize where I AM calling you to battle for this is a time of strategic warfare.  I call My troops to muster to My standard in holy uprising for I lead you to great victory.

Isaiah 59:
19 So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.

Exodus 17:
9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand.
10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.
11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
12 But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
14 And the Lord said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.
15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:

Releasing the Prophetic Eagles


Theresa Phillips:
Releasing the Prophetic Eagles
I love it when the elements get my attention and speak to me. Nature listens to God then reveals it to us...I LOVE THAT! In early June, while on a missions trip, I noticed a bald eagle in Indiana that was training her young to fly. I was watching her as she dropped her wing and loosed the baby, and then swooped it up again, going higher and higher, repeating the scene. As I looked toward the treetops, I realized they were not far from their nest. The momma eagle was safe, but she was teaching her young to fly.

I then heard the Lord speak to me: "Tell your people they will fly and soar like never before."
I shared this, and then a few days later I was driving with my husband to a meeting and there was another bald eagle teaching her young to fly. Again, this got my attention. This time I saw the nest in the treetops and I saw that there was a body of water nearby.

Again the Lord spoke: "Theresa, you are a momma eagle and you are teaching your young leaders to fly."

I then became undone.

He spoke again: "Theresa, the new young eagles are coming forth. They will be fed by the Spirit of the Lord. They will soar into high places, and they will declare the realm of the prophetic to many who have not heard it before. These new prophets will have been taught through powerful winds of justice and righteousness that are declared in the Holy Writ! You will begin to see the youth of the Church arise. These young will want to just hang out with leaders who have gone on before them. Let them. Take them under your wing. I am opening up the hearts of leaders to flow in the know-how to grow in the presence of God!

"A new passion in the realm of justice will emerge over the next six months. Prophetic justice. Truth will be released through revelation, through dreams, and through utterance.
"I am sending the youth to grow up with healthy spiritual mothers and fathers. I will bring healing to the Body of Christ who have felt like orphans. I am releasing the leaders to lead once again like knights of the realm of the King. They will cry as one and they will emerge as a force of power, might, love, grace, and humility. I will put in the hearts of My people honor, justice, and righteousness. This has already begun..."

The Bald Eagle

I then wondered, Why the bald eagle, Lord? Why? I am fully aware of the living creature that is the eagle spoken of in the Word around God's throne (Revelation 4). But...? I am also aware the eagle represents prophetic people, but the American bald eagle?

"The bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), our national bird, is the only eagle unique to North America. The bald eagle's scientific name signifies a sea (halo) eagle (aeetos) with a white (leukos) head. At one time, the word "bald" meant "white," not hairless. Bald eagles are found throughout most of North America, from Alaska and Canada to northern Mexico. About half of the world's 70,000 bald eagles live in Alaska. Combined with British Columbia's population of about 20,000, the northwest coast of North America is by far their greatest stronghold for bald eagles..." []

Then the Lord spoke to me again: "This bald eagle represents the mature, the wisdom, and the glory of the 'movement' that has just begun. The new eaglets represent the need to be near the momma eagle until she releases them to GO. The eaglets also represent the new hidden ones who have been kept for such a time as this. These new 'prophetic eagles' will not be afraid to soar in the heights of spheres of influence. They will be 'connected' to local houses of worship, for they will have learned that they need accountability. Get ready, for this wave is soon upon the earth, and it will move very fast."

A few days after, I heard the following word. I was in my garden and I looked up, and I saw something that astounded me – an American bald eagle flew over the top of my garden. While I stood there in amazement, I heard this: "It's begun; I am releasing the eagles to fly."

I looked about me and I noticed this eagle as out of its normal place of habitation. Then I heard this:
"Go and tell My servant David, 'Thus saith the LORD, "Shalt thou build Me an house for Me to dwell in?"'" (2 Samuel 7:5).

I looked around my garden; I noticed the atmosphere was very still. I felt a holy hush enter in. I wept for a few moments at the powerful visitation and teaching with instruction I had received. I then heard a whisper to my spirit, "Be not afraid. Be not afraid. The young ones will return to nest in your habitation, and they too will train up eagles. Be not afraid. Be not afraid, O leader, O preacher, O prophet, O apostle, O evangelist. Just equip the Body. Be not afraid, for I AM with you even unto the end of the age."

Matthew 28:16-20 (KJV) Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them [eagles love mountains]. And when they saw Him, they worshipped Him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, "All power is given unto Me in Heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." (Note added by writer.)

Let us say a simple prayer: Jesus, You have said in Your Word that we must desire to prophesy. I desire that we all prophesy. I pray for those mothers and fathers who will disciple the many – the thousands of new emerging leaders. I pray for steadfastness, sure footing, and unwavering faith. I ask that You guide, direct, and reveal the possibilities to all new converts and to the young. I pray the mature will be free to love, guide, and release. O Jesus, mighty One of Heaven, bless Your Church and Your prophetess with a FRESH release of wisdom and revelation. I ask Your love to be filling the land with grace to GROW. In Jesus' name, amen.

Evangelist Billy Graham in hospital with infection

Evangelist Billy Graham in hospital with infection

ASHEVILLE, N.C. –  A spokesman for Billy Graham says the 93-year-old evangelist has been admitted to a North Carolina hospital for an infection in his lungs.

A joint statement Sunday from Graham's spokesman and Mission Hospital says Graham was admitted overnight for evaluation and treatment of an infection thought to be bronchitis. The hospital is in Asheville, near his home in Montreat.

Pulmonologist David Pucci says Graham is resting comfortably and his condition is stable. He is receiving antibiotics.

Graham spokesman Larry Ross says the evangelist was able to watch a television feed of his grandson, Will Graham, preaching on Sunday morning.

Graham was hospitalized for pneumonia last November. His staff says the evangelist's health has been good since his release, though he remains at home due to age-related conditions. He is working on a manuscript for an upcoming book

Safety Is In The Lord

Donna Raphael


We find ourselves living in very troubling and perilous times.  There are so many worrisome things happening that it becomes very easy to fall into fear.  But the Lord is assuring you that He sees and is in control of all things. Remember that there is no true safety outside of Him. Put your faith and trust in Him and Him alone. He will keep you and all that concerns you in and through all things.

Psalm 33:

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
13 The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.
14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.
16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
17 An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
20 Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield.
21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
22 Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.


-by J. Lee Grady.

The Lord often provides me with a big, fat dose of reality when I
travel overseas. It happened this week in India when I looked into
the frightened face of Divya, a frail 4-year-old girl. Just a few days
ago her poor parents abandoned her in Tanuku, in eastern Andhra
Pradesh, because they already had three daughters. They wanted a son.

So they dumped their child on the side of a road.

When I met little Divya she would not smile no matter how much
I coaxed her. She was traumatized. My friend Raja, who found her
and took her to the girls� home he runs with his wife, said Divya
had not spoken in four days.

"She usually cries herself to sleep at night," Raja said. "She
doesn't understand what is happening."

There are already more than 30 girls living in Raja�s house - and
all of them have similar stories. Some were orphaned when their
parents died, but many were abandoned because they live in a
culture that devalues females. Two of the girls were found alive in
trash bins when they were infants.

Raja has also found a few dead baby girls in roadside trash piles.
Pigs had eaten parts of their bodies.

This week I spent time with Raja, his wife, Padma, and the girls,
and I toured the three-room house in Tanuku where they all live.
More than 10 girls share each room. They sleep on mats. They
have access to two toilets (but no hot water for baths), and they
all have lice.

Raja and Padma have two young children of their own, but they
manage to feed the orphaned girls rice and vegetables every day.
They serve meat only once a week, in very small portions. They
trust God to provide for the girls� school fees. They also teach
them the Bible and take them to their Pentecostal church on Sundays.

Last Sunday afternoon after church, we took all the girls to a water
park in Tanuku. The admission to the park was $2 U.S., but that
is too much for most poor children in India. These girls had never
even seen a swimming pool.

They giggled nervously before dipping their toes in the water. Some
were frightened of the slides. But before the afternoon was over
most of the children were splashing each other and playing games
in the pool.

Everyone but Divya, the girl who had been abandoned a few days
ago. "She was very scared, and she even tried to run out of the
water park," Raja told me. "But when we brought her back, she
just sat alone."

But because there is so much love and security in Divya�s new
home, she finally cracked her first smile the day before I left
Tanuku-and she joined in singing a song about Jesus with the
other girls.

Her wounded heart is already being healed thanks to Raja and
Padma�s compassion.

Divya�s story reflects what is happening in India today. Even though
women and girls suffer unimaginable cruelty and rejection, and
even though millions still suffer in indescribable poverty, the gospel
is spreading at an accelerated pace. India�s new believers are not
only planting churches and evangelizing unreached areas but they
are also showing Jesus� love to orphans, widows, lepers, prostitutes
and people of the lowest social caste.

Every time I come to India I get a much-needed shock treatment.
I realize how spoiled I am. I repent for whining and complaining
about stupid material things that don�t matter. After only a day
here, I suddenly sense a new gratitude for running water, flush
toilets, hot showers, a comfortable bed, reliable electricity and
paved roads.

And even after this attitude adjustment, I still am haunted by my
encounter with Divya. She totally messed me up. I can�t just go
back to my comfortable suburban bubble knowing that little girls
like her are being left on roadsides. Her pitiful cry was my
wake-up call.

I believe God is calling all of us to renounce our self-absorbed
American prosperity religion so we can hear the cries around us.
Let�s stop whining and be thankful. And let�s open our hearts to
receive His compassion for the millions of Divya�s who need our love.

It's Payback Time

It's Payback Time

3rd August, 2012

Lana Vawser

“I will repay you for the years the locusts have
eaten...” - Joel 2:25

My precious Church, I have called you as My own and love
you with an everlasting love. I continue to call you to
come into the secret place with Me and seek My heart,
worship Me, seek to fellowship with Me. Dine with Me and
know Me. For out of deep intimacy much is birthed. I am
birthing so much fresh beautiful fruit through the lives
of those who are living deep in the secret place.

There is a release and acceleration that is happening now
within My Church, and those who have been living deep in
the secret place are arising with greater revelation of
who I am, of My Word and My heart that is transforming
those around them and nations. It is My heart and My
desire for all within My Church to delve deep into My
heart. To plunge deep into the rivers of worship, and
delight ever so deeply in the revelation of My love. I
continue to woo you My Church, to call you to come and
let Me show you things that you have not imagined.

In this time of great acceleration and release there has
been great opposition. There have been many who have
walked through intense months and seasons of hardship
leading up to this release. I have strengthened you, I
have built you up and even though the heat of the fire
seemed to be rising, you have not been burnt, you have
come out as pure gold.

In this season I am now not only restoring back to the
lives of My children what the enemy has caused havoc in
and stolen, but I am giving back MORE THAN ENOUGH!

This is not a season for simply receiving restoration,
but receiving above and beyond for the trouble that My
children have walked.

This is the season where I am again releasing to My
children, blessings that were stolen, dreams that were
aborted, torment that was caused by the enemy.

This is the season of “more than enough”. This is the
season where “awe” will be restored back into the lives
of My children at greater depths as they see what I am
“paying back”. For what the enemy meant for harm, I have
turned for good. What the enemy stole, I am giving back
better than before.

I am “wowing” My Church and My people with great acts of
kindness, love and restoration, but it is restoration
above their dreams and expectations.

All of the enemy's attempts to hinder breakthrough's, to
stop destinies, to abort dreams, to steal, kill and
destroy, I have turned back on him.

For what the enemy sought for harm and to hinder
momentum, I am now using to PROPEL My people into their
destinies, into their dreams, into the fulfillment of
promises that have been locked away for many years.

I, the Lord your God, who sits in heaven, I laugh at the
plans of the enemy for I am even using his attempts to
hinder to extended My Kingdom and show My Glory.

There is nothing that is impossible for Me, and they VERY
AREA the enemy has been speaking into the lives of My
people to say it is IMPOSSIBLE, I am about to show that
it is POSSIBLE with Me, and that very area of greatest
attack on My children, I am now releasing the GREATEST

My children, you will sing and dance and skip with the
words flowing from your hearts “how Great is our God that
brings good out of all things and has restored us with

I am not the God of the “just enough”, I am the God of

August and September of this year will see this “more
than enough” gain a momentum that will “wow” and restore
greater awe of My love and kindness to the lives of My

Billy Graham Opens His Heart to the Nation

Billy Graham Opens His Heart to the Nation

Billy Graham's 'Judgment' Letter Sparks Charismatic Commotion

Billy Graham's 'Judgment' Letter Sparks Charismatic Commotion

Billy Graham (BGEA)
Famed evangelist Billy Graham�s letter calling America and its �deceived people� to repentance is one in a series of escalating warnings that the nation is in growing danger of God�s judgment, prominent faith leaders told Charisma News.
�This may be our last chance to call the nation to pray,� says Anne Gimenez, national chairperson of America for JesusAmerica for Jesus�The Awakening, which expects hundreds of thousands of people to gather at Independence Mall in Philadelphia Sept. 28-29 to pray and intercede for the United States.
�We believe it possibly could be the last time we have this opportunity. Nineveh is a great example. All the wickedness of that city, and yet when they did what God said they should do and repented, God healed their land. That�s right where America is today. We�re on the brink of America being destroyed as we know it, but I believe God is giving America a chance at this hour.�
In his letter, �My Heart Aches for America,� the 93-year-old Graham wrote that he recalled how his late wife, Ruth, once expressed concerns about the nation�s �terrible downward spiral��exclaiming, �If God doesn�t punish America, He�ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.�
Graham, who has preached to more people than any other Protestant in history�2.2 billion�wrote that he wondered what Ruth would think of the country today where �self-centered indulgence, pride and a lack of shame over sin are now emblems of the American lifestyle.�
�My hearts aches for America,� wrote Graham, who has provided spiritual counsel to every president from Harry S. Truman to George W. Bush and received Barack Obama in his home in 2010. He has been on Gallup�s �Ten Most Admired Men in the World� list 55 times since 1955.
�The wonderful news is that our Lord is a God of mercy, and He responds to repentance. In Jonah�s Day, Nineveh was the lone world superpower�wealthy, unconcerned and self-centered. When the Prophet Jonah finally traveled to Nineveh and proclaimed God�s warning, people heard and repented. I believe the same thing can happen once again, this time in our nation.�
Graham�s letter calling America to repentance comes as a growing number of highly respected Christian leaders have issued similar warnings in recent months, noting that the nation is in a downward spiral of economic decline, immorality, corruption, growing secular humanism and attacks on religious liberty.
Jack Hayford, the founding pastor of The Church on the Way in Van Nuys, Calif., and the former president of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, says Graham�s letter comes as the nation is in a �very grim hour as we approach the election this year.�
�What we need is something on the order of shock troops at this hour, and I can imagine that can be raised,� Hayford says. �I don�t feel despairing. I do feel the urgency. We are at a point that desperate action is needed and Billy�s voice, certainly as no other, can give rise to that.�
Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, the author of the New York Times best-selling book The Harbinger, says Graham�s letter is a �prophetic word� that parallels the message in The Harbinger�that America is rapidly departing from God and is in danger of judgment unless it turns back to God in humble and genuine repentance.
The fact that Graham released the letter �should get our attention� and is �very striking� and �very stunning,� says Cahn, the senior rabbi at the nation�s largest messianic congregation, the Beth Israel Worship Center in Wayne, N.J.
�I believe this is a very, very critical time for America and for God�s people in America, and I believe it has ramifications for world history,� says Cahn, a descendant of Aaron, the high priest of the ancient Israelites and the brother of the Biblical prophet Moses. �The way that America goes is going to affect the world, and the way God�s people in America go will affect America.
�So, the message of The Harbinger is that we are in danger and that the same progression of judgment that occurred in the last days of ancient Israel is now occurring in America. The call is ultimately for salvation for those who don�t know the Lord and for repentance and revival for those who do. I see this (Graham�s letter) as another very stark sign that we are a critical point.�

Joel Rosenberg, the New York Times best-selling author of Implosion: Can America Recover from its Economic & Spiritual Challenges in Time?, echoed Cahn�s remarks in a blog entry last week, noting Graham�s letter highlights �the need for spiritual revival.�
�America is in grave danger,� Rosenberg wrote. �The massacre in Aurora. The child sex-abuse scandal at Penn State. The scourge of abortion and pornography and runaway spending and debt in Washington. The list tragically goes on and on. In Implosion, I try to document how serious the situation is, and how a Third Great Awakening is the
only answer.�

Graham�s letter comes as several organizations are planning prayer gatherings, evangelistic festivals and other events.
In his letter, Graham wrote his son Franklin Graham is planning to launch an outreach entitled My Hope with Billy Graham �that wouldbring the gospel into neighborhoods and homes in every corner of America next year.�
�America is desperately in need of another great awakening,� says Cindy Jacobs, co-founder of Generals International. �As many other nations in history have belatedly discovered, one cannot eliminate the name of Jesus and think that God does not see. We all need to listen and respond to what the Lord has put on the heart of Dr. Billy Graham, and respond to his message of hope as well as courageously find our own voice in calling the church and nation to repent.�
Meanwhile, starting Sept. 28 and continuing through Nov. 6, 40 Days to Save America is calling for prayer, fasting and repentance in the 40 days prior to the presidential election.
�During the American Revolution, in the darkest days of the Civil War, at the outset of our involvement in World War II, leaders as different as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared national seasons of prayer, fasting and repentance,� wrote Rick Scarborough, chairman of 40 Days to Save America on the website.
�Today, our nation faces multiple crises�pending economic collapse, moral disintegration and international terrorism�but all have spiritual underpinnings. Together, they are even more daunting than those Americans confronted in 1776, 1863 and 1941. Now as then our national survival is at stake. Now as then, our destiny rests in God�s hands. The crises confronting us are beyond the power of human beings to resolve without divine guidance. Nothing short of a Third Great Awakening can save us.�
The calls for prayer and repentance come a year after Texas Gov. Rick Perry declared Aug. 6, 2011, a day of national prayer, fasting and repentance and invited fellow governors to attend The Response at Reliant Stadium in Houston. Given the trials besetting the nation from the �global economic downturn to natural disasters, the lingering danger of terrorism and continued debasement of our culture,� Perry said he believed it was time to �convene the leaders from each of our United States in a day of prayer and fasting, like that described in the book of Joel.�
Doug Stringer, the founder of Somebody Cares America and the national mobilization coordinator for The Response, says a battle for the soul of the nation is underway, the wake-up call has come and yet �we keep pushing the snooze button.�
�Coming from one who has been such a great giant�an ambassador for Christ around the world�I think [Graham�s] words at age 93 should deeply, deeply impact each and every one of us,� Stringer says. �I really believe we�re in a Joel 2 moment where the church must take seriously personal and individual repentance. America is in trouble. We need God himself to intervene.�
For another Great Awakening to occur, Hayford says the church and believers must engage in �gut-level, spiritually-impassioned intercessory prayer��something lacking in most churches today, few of which even hold prayer meetings anymore.
�The undermining of the ensconced dark powers that are eating out the underpinnings of our national life are only going to be neutralized and cast down in one way,� says Hayford, author of Penetrating the Darkness: Discovering the Power of the Cross Against Unseen Evil. �You can preach about it, and that�s valid, and it�s not worthless. But it�s what is awakened in the church through prayer that becomes the truly penetrating and ultimately victorious dynamic.�

Word of the Lord by Phyllis Ford - August 2012

Word of the Lord for August 2012
by Phyllis Ford
Arlington, Texas

"There is about to be a turning of the tides: that which was on the bottom is about to rise up and take its rightful place and that which has been (on the top) highly exalted is about to plummet to the bottom. You must understand that everything that has been done up to now in your life has had a purpose and now during this major time of transition its about to give way to that which must be done according to my word. Even when you didn't realize it, my favor has been upon your life leading guiding and directing you and even revealing and unveiling all to you, so that you would know the most essential things right now. I have also been pointing out to you the things that must now be eliminated in your life and those things which are truly needed. The results of whether the right decisions were made have to do with what you believe and what your heart has been following after."

"There is so much deception in the land--people have become accustomed and drawn to the worlds system, its lifestyle, and its values. As a result many have fallen away and have dulled their perception of that which is good and that which is evil, and as a result false idols have been exalted before them and if they don't awake from their slumber it could further jeopardize their own faith. So much has been staged to appear good when it is in fact evil. Celebrations have been made to appear joyful when they in fact have become rituals of idolatry. Yes, there is a turning and a shifting of things to come with great reversals. But I have prepared ways of escape and I have provided the strategy to overcome the works of darkness so that the people may continue to arise from their state of slumber to receive the light of my gospel. 

Ephesians 5:10-17 (amplified version) And try to learn [in your experience] what is pleasing to the Lord [let your lives be constant proofs of what is most acceptable to Him].Take no part in and have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds and enterprises of darkness, but instead [let your lives be so in contrast as to] [a]expose and reprove and convict them. For it is a shame even to speak of, or mention the things that [such people] practice in secret. But when anything is exposed and reproved by the light, it is made visible and clear; and where everything is visible and clear there is light. Therefore He says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light. Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people), Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil. Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is.

Todays question is: Who do men say that I am? And I ask you personally who do you say I am? Because the answers to these questions will point towards your choices, your understanding and even what you will stand for. Things have shifted tremendously within the last couple of days, it's a time to come out from among those who refuse to obey my word, those who refused to remove the high places of their idolatry and are determined to live their lives according to the dictates of their fleshly whims. So I say to you today. "Come out from among them and be separate," says the Lord. (Isaiah 52:11, Rev 18:4)

2 Corinthians 6:16-17 "And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you."

Today I make my words clear--I love all of my people, and I have been longsuffering over them. My heart is to redeem them from all that is ungodly and breathe upon them new life so that none should perish. However, those who now continually sin and believe that no matter what the circumstances may be, that they will see eternal life in glory are deceived. I have spoken to my prophets in this hour and I have made it clear that the time has come when the actions of men have been weighed in the balances and found wanting. This is the time to turn and return, to come into the sheepfold, for the Master is calling those that are his. My grace has been extended for those who need to return so I say to you come in my beloved.

Those who are waiting for something to change and transform their lives without seeking spiritual growth and maturity must understand that they must also embrace with faith, the light of my word that is coming upon them. This is a time that you must determine what you will do and what will you stand for. Your spirit, if it is guided by the Holy Spirit will lead you onto the pathway that I have chosen. This is why you must be on the right course and moving in the right direction. Your ability to humble your ways and even look to me for what you will need is essential. Allow my glory to take you beyond the places you cant go yourself.

This is an hour for deliverance, a great time of transition---many of you are transitioning into fulfilling your purpose and destiny. Transition and transformation during this time run hand in hand, you will not be able to successfully transition if you don't allow the process of transformation to take place.So let me complete in you that which must be accomplished. Yield and receive!!! It is the key to operating as my Manifested Sons in the earth.

"Don't lose focus even with all of the storms that will be raging around you. There are some very important things to be aware of right now. It is not focused upon what is the enemies next move but how do you succeed?  How do you overcome? How do you fulfill your calling as My Manifested Sons? How do you breakthrough?"

The two important keys that you need right now is to trust in me and learn how to yield and receive me so that you may be able to conquer and overcome. I am strengthening you for the battles ahead and so that you may triumph in areas that cannot be done other than through me saith the Lord. Know that the keys of what I have placed into your hands are acquired through your faith and my word. Your trust and belief in me positions you for breakthrough, for breaking out, and for breaking beyond all the barriers that will be placed against you. But when you believe upon me many things will be possible. There are realms in me that you have yet to achieve but will be commonplace in the very near future. The key to becoming the Manifested Sons of God is directly connected with receiving me and believing upon my name. It is a fellowship that is clearly connected to Sonship, and a reality understanding your true identity.   

John 1:9-14 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.      

Spiritual Leaders:

And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand. Matthew 12:25

Remember that a house divided against itself cannot stand. This is the time when I will uncover those who refuse to listen to my warnings and continue in their iniquity as if no one knows what they have entangled themselves intoI am about to uncover that which is unclean and I will remove individuals who continue to rebel against my word and by their misconduct have caused the gospel to be blamed. In this hour the lives of others are literally hanging in the balance. There are some who are standing by eager to serve and eager to grow and understand righteousness. I will not have them waiting in vain. I say to you also to be careful, do not allow jealousy and strife to cause you to speak evil because what you say could be weighed against you, judge not--lest you enter into the same judgment. I am the one who judges the righteous and the wicked. I will determine who will go forth and whose hand I will strengthen. I have laid out a plan and a course for my people and it will not be hindered. I have observed those who have taken my grace and used it as a license to sin. Be careful for I am uncovering in this hour.

To My Chosen

To those of you who have served without looking for anything in return, I say to you prepare, for promotion will come and manifest in ways that you have ever fathom. You will enter into a place of divine supply even in the midst of an approaching famine. Know that I am making your way so that you will help prepare the way for others. I salute the times that you have pressed in for the sake of others so that they could be saved, filled and comforted. Your very compassion will bring forth great miracles and you will walk in me without reservation, without questionspossessing the land, the oil, the wine and the bread that comes down from the heavens. Hold on I am coming for you and yes there is a coming forth--before the coming.

This is a very important month of consecration and separation---of the wheat from the tares, the light from darkness, righteousness from sin, good from evil, as well as the sheep from the goats. The nations will be defined in this hour whether they be of great light or gross darkness and you will know one from the other. And those who will deny Israel will deny me, and will be held accountable. This is a time to break through, break out , and breaking beyond for those who have cried out to me and not lost the faith, your time has come and it will not be delayed. I have timed everything perfectly in the order that I have ordained for it to be, says the Lord.

There are no prophetic insightsthis word is very clearit was related in a serious manner. This may wind up being one of the most serious times of the year.

Prophetic Intercession:
Two significant recent dreams:

1.)    I was in a place where there had been great devastationit appeared to be an urban area and very populated place inner city atmospherethere was no sound and all I hear was, Call the spiritual first responders. First responders have a special significance, they are trained and skilled with the necessary tools to help in immediate emergencies and they respond to the area that they specialize in be it medical, agricultural or military related. They are first on scene and help remove the person from the immediate crisis. Their focus is to remove the victim from the crisis. They are those who are trained and prepared to be the first on scene to assist in a crisis. I have been prayer/preparation mode because of the waves of crisis that have appeared on the scene as of late. Watchmen and intercessors stay on your post I believe this speaks volumes in the area of intercession.

2.)    The other dream seem to be very serious however there is very little I rememberedI was observing another scene of devastation and I was in tears but the territory seem unfamiliar to me. The only words I heard was from my own mouth: Its the sound of Rachel weeping for her children, a sound of lamentation. (I found this to be very troubling.) Therefore I am praying for further clarification. (Jeremiah 31:15-16, Matthew 2:18)
War plans between nations have not lifted from off my radar as of yet. Especially after my dream concerning the statement of Rachel weeping over her childrenI cannot emphasize how important it is for us to cry out to the Father concerning Israel. Even though there are many theories as to the seriousness of possible wars, I am continuing to watch Russia and the US because no matter what may appear outwardly the undercurrent of the conflict between both nations will be revealed.

My major concern has been around a very serious earthquake and a very significant tsunami to follow. I am praying over Hawaii---Chicago is still on our watch listasCalifornia(west coast & east coast) Florida, Veracruz. These storms that we have witnessed are indications of spiritual and natural storms loomingsuch the economy, the coming election, crisis in government, even serious trouble around the President.

Special Note: Watchmen and Intercessors please continue to pray around the gates around London, Washington DC, New York, The Vatican, Brussels and Paris. (See Word of the Lord for May 2012 concerning Gates.)

Prophetess Toni M. Green and I are calling a Daniel Fast beginning on August 8, 2012 @ 8am until August 29, 2012 @ 8am.  

Marriage, One Man, One Woman

Marriage, One Man, One Woman

The church has struggled much on standing up for biblical truth and defending it. The scriptures tells us you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in the contest against sin. Heb. 12:4 (CJB) Jesus was hated and hung on the cross because men could not bear the truth that He spoke and because God had a plan to redeem mankind.  Many times they tried to kill Him and yet until the appointed time He was able to walk through the crowd and out of harm's way. At the appointed time He laid down His life with sacrificial love for all mankind.

Standing as a believer is something that we cannot do in our own strength.  A line is being drawn in the sand where we are having to decide whose side we are on.  Will we stand wholeheartedly for the Word of God amid the storms that are raising their ugly head?  Issues are coming up where we are being challenged to come to a new level of faith and commitment.  Will we keep silent or will we speak the truth in love, calling sin as the Word of God calls it?

In the United States we have heard of the battle over righteousness in believing that marriage is between one man and one woman.  Canada's laws  have already been changed and many have chosen the path that they will follow. How did this very basic fundamental truth about marriage that is basic to our survival as a people come under such erosion by the enemy?  How is it that man cannot see and know that a man and woman made in the image of God were created to marry and procreate and that no other two species except male and female can bring the fruit of the womb.  

27 So God created humankind in his own image; in the image of God he created him:
male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them: God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the air and every living creature that crawls on the earth.” Genesis 1:27 (CJB)

Men are calling good evil and evil good.  As it was in the days of Noah so it will be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man.  The Lord spoke about the condition of men's hearts then and they are the same today.   He is not willing that any should perish but all should come to the truth.  His love for mankind took Him to the cross where He suffered, died and rose again that we might be set free from our sin and that we might come to know Him. 

One day all will give an account of how they lived there lives here on this earth.  Were we holy as He is Holy?  Did we walk in truth and righteousness?  Did we speak the truth in love and stand as that watchman on the wall who was called to speak so that the blood of another would not be on his hands? 

Have you spoken when it is uncomfortable, unpopular and would cost you something dear.  Have you dared to speak the whole counsel when led of the Holy Spirit to do so?  We are living in times like the days of Noah, eating, drinking, getting married and going about business as usual.

We need to take a stand now for what we believe.  Daily the rights of those of precious faith are under attack.  Let Christ in you arise and be fortified in His Word.  We are told that the day will come when all will hate you and we do not like to think about this.  One can feel the spiritual climate changing daily and we need to guard our relationship with Jesus. We are to love the sinner, pray for them, but come out from among them and be separate.  It is only as you live a separated life that you will  have eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the church. 

Recently in sharing that someone was getting married, a person asked the question, "to a man or woman", in jesting.  This shows how the truth of God's word has been rejected to suit the sin of man rather than man allowing God to move on His heart that He might follow Jesus. Taking up our cross daily and following Him is becoming increasingly difficult and unpopular. Yet there is no option for the true follower of Christ.  Let us be willing to daily take up our cross and follow Jesus. 

The word of Adonai came to me: “Human being, speak to your people; say to them, ‘Suppose I bring the sword on a country, and the people of that country take one of their men and appoint him their watchman. Now if, upon seeing the sword coming against that country, he blows the shofar and warns the people; then, if the sword comes and takes away someone who heard the sound of the shofar but paid no attention to it, the responsibility for that person’s death will be his own — he heard the shofar but paid no attention, so the responsibility for his death is his own; whereas if he had paid attention, he would have saved his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the shofar, so that the people are not warned; and then the sword comes and takes any one of them, that one is indeed taken away in his guilt, but I will hold the watchman responsible for his death.’
“Likewise you, human being — I have appointed you as watchman for the house of Isra’el. Therefore, when you hear the word from my mouth, warn them for me. When I tell the wicked person, ‘Wicked person, you will certainly die’; and you fail to speak and warn the wicked person to leave his way; then that wicked person will die guilty; and I will hold you responsible for his death. On the other hand, if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he doesn’t turn from his way; then he will still die guilty, but you will have saved your own life. Ezekiel 33:1-7 (CJB)
