Past Doors Closing � Hope is Ahead, Not Behind

Past Doors Closing � Hope is Ahead, Not Behind
By Ron McGatlin
Some situations and relationships in our lives that were once open are slamming shut, never to reopen again. Spiritual lines have been crossed that cannot be uncrossed. Some opportunities that in the past had seemed so hopeful are now forever closed. There is not time or energy given from God to look back with hope that there will ever be a reopening. In these situations, the past is truly past.
Human compassion or personal inner need may team up together to insist that we must not move on, but rather wait for a glimmer of hope that the door of the relationship or situation might crack open again. There have been seasons of mercy in which it was the desire of God for us to wait and pray for the reopening of a closed door. However, for many situations in this season, the day of waiting has passed. Seek God for clarity, and, if necessary to settle your heart, knock one more time on that door of the past, but do not linger looking back at closed doors of past opportunities. Seducing spirits will often try to convince us that although God is saying move on, there is still a chance for the door to open again.
Abrupt powerful and extreme change is necessary to move from the current season in which the mercy and goodness of God plead with His people to turn to Him with their whole hearts, into the new season.  The new season is characterized by an increased emphasis of God�s strong corrective judgment.
Measuring ourselves among ourselves is never wise. The Savior is the Judge, the One who has provided all that is needed for our complete redemption; the One who has all power and authority stands in holy perfection to reveal and cleanse all remaining imperfections of His glorious Bride. Christ Jesus is the standard by which all are measured. None who have refused to allow His life, His way, and His provision to become their life will measure up. Corrective judgment must pour out until there is nothing that lifts itself against God in us or around us.
God is Opening Fresh New Doors
The season is desperately urgent. There is not time to linger in the past and fail to step through the door God is opening before us into a season of empowerment and glory, even while earth-cleansing judgments are occurring at the same time. This is a season of sharp clarity without unclear assumptions and a season of extremes and final fulfillments.
This is a season of miraculous supernatural provision and fulfillment, while at the same time all that can be shaken is being shaken. Major testing will come upon mankind and all that can be deceived will be deceived.
True holiness will be the order of the day. The day of the manifested presence of Christ Jesus as King of Glory is coming forth. The return of the kingdoms of this world to the kingdoms of God is the sought-after end or goal.  All of the severe and glorious works of the manifested presence of Christ are fully proclaiming and fulfilling the glorious gospel of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
Even in the most severe judgment from God, there is mercy. Mercy will cause many who know the Lord as Savior but who cannot receive him as King from heaven now ruling in this world by His Spirit in His people, will quickly pass from this life into heaven. While those who have come through the narrow door into the fullness of the kingdom of God on earth will remain through the time of trouble to bring forth the rule from heaven on earth as Christ Jesus dwells in them by the Holy Spirit.
Nothing that defiles will enter New Jerusalem.
Sensual playtime for carnal pleasure seekers and competitive game players seeking to be number one is coming to an abrupt end. Those who worship the creation above the creator will quickly come to know the Creator and Lord of all and turn to Him with their whole hearts, or they will curse God and die. They will curse God because of the destruction of their pleasures. For those who turn to God with their whole hearts, the joy of the Lord in pure holiness will replace the carnal pleasure-seeking of the past (Rev 21:7).
Do not be among the deceived. God is not mocked; those who live righteously are righteous, those who live ungodly are unrighteous (1 John 3:6-8).  Turn to God with your whole heart and life now, and enter into the glorious presence of God on earth. The fire of God that purges also brings the most exciting powerful life of joy unspeakable and full of Glory.
Mixture is passing away.
The middle ground of mixture, some of God and some of selfish carnality in our lives, will rapidly disappear. The pure and holy life of Christ Jesus is available by the Holy Spirit to fill us with God�s love, power, and wisdom to live supernatural lives manifesting His glory into the new world order. The New Jerusalem, Bride of Christ, life pattern is coming down to earth from heaven to restore the life and ways of God and His kingdom on earth (Rev 21).
Beyond all the fires of judgment and the cleansing of the land, the pure-hearted holy children of God will emerge to restore the fullness of the kingdom of God ruling unchallenged over the entire earth. The glory of God shall fill the earth, and of His kingdom there shall be no end. Amen and Amen.
The spiritual kingdom of God, kingdom of heaven within God�s holy people, will flow out to bring the righteousness and ways of God on earth as it is in heaven. Thus the spiritual kingdom within becomes the natural kingdom. Creation flows from God, and the world is ordered by God. All things on or about Planet Earth will be fully under the feet of Christ Jesus. The Spirit becomes manifested in the natural and all the world shall be the kingdom of our God.
Ephesians 1:9-10:  Having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth�in Him.
Revelation 11:15: Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, �The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!�
Keep on pursuing love. It never fails
and His kingdom never ends.

You are Turning a Major Corner

You are Turning a Major Corner
By: Prophetess Phyllis Ford
Arlington, Texas

You are about to turn a major corner where you will see many significant things finally fall into place: things that will begin to make sense; as they come together; almost as if the light bulb was switched on in the midst of the darkness. And the things that were there all along will be seen and begin to take on a new significance. Keep Watching…major change is going on around you now (there is movement)…the beginning of some new things and the rattling of some dead bones are about to rise up right now.

When a major turn is made, it is important to look (glance) around carefully--- let other people react but hold your position---do not be moved ---you stay where you are---that stability is key for the foundation of your “faith-victory.” It is not the time to come out of your place in prayer---staying and praying is pushing the obstacles/hindrances out of the way.

As the time is passing and a major turning is taking place –that which was before you challenging you—is now behind you---watch things now from a different angle (view), and learn from them. Because you have passed through that which you had to overcome; more ground than you have realized has been accomplished. Now you are more prepared, ready, and more disciplined. You are more grounded and more watchful able to deal with future events –as you pray I am sending you a release of key things that will assist you and advance you through.

As you obey, you will soar like eagles. Your wings will carry the power, but the pressing prayer in the nest is the place where you will gain your strength. Do not move out of your position---continue to press in.

Ezekiel 37:4-7 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. 5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live : 6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live ; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.

Isaiah 40-31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

**Please, continue to keep the Word of the Lord for September

Word of the Lord September 2013

Word of the Lord September 2013
by Prophetess Phyllis Ford
Arlington, Texas

I was somewhat concerned that the Lord had not released the word for September. As the first of the month passed the Lord began to let me know that the emphasis was not on the first of the month but that which was to come. He showed the Jewish calendar. What I was looking at was “a measured time with a spiritual emphasis.” He was letting me know to get the first off of my mind and to focus on what He was showing me. He was saying that the emphasis was on the seriousness of the hour and how the ten days from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur must be covered with heavy prayer. It is about Israel, America, the Nations, and what must be done. Understand that it is also about a marking of time and the purpose of this time.

The following are His words:

“I am dealing with the spirit of uncleanness that is upon this land at various levels. It has affected the hearts of the people and how a person measures, sees, and discerns a thing. Much has been poisoned the views of the people , the ways of people, and their choices. More importantly it has affected their levels of trust in me. The enemy has sown seeds of mistrust so that the faith of my people would fail, his strategy hasn’t changed.”

“You must guard against everything at this level. Your ability to trust, to uphold your faith and to believe that which I shall do in this hour, is very key. They are your greatest strengths and they are also your greatest weapons. As many seek to find deeper revelation on overcoming the enemy’s weapons, know that much can be measured with a seed of faith. It has the ability to move mountains, to reverse whatever obstacle is opposing you, and to withstand the greatest attack that may try to deter or hinder you.”

Matthew 17:20 “He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

Hebrews 10:38 “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.”

“This nation is on a course of serious events. Trust and faith in me will be a major factor. Many things are about to occur between this September and October that will try the hearts of men. My people must prevail in prayer during these next ten days from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur. There are many things hanging in the balance and this nation in many aspects has lost its way. (This is now occurring in many regions but America has reached its tipping point.) This is not a political battle but a spiritual battle. I have told you before that by the end of this year Nations will align themselves as sheep nations and goat nations---this alignment is forming right now.”

“Allegiances are being made. The foundation of the factors that has to do with those who will follow me and those who will oppose me are being settled. Their fates will be determined by whom they will serve. So as I passed through the first of September be I was pointing to a time. (A time from the Head of the year to the High Holy day of Atonement.) I am saying to my people: You shall no longer halt between two opinions you must choose who will you serve, for the fate of nations will be determined by those choices.”

Matthew 25:32-34 “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: (v 35-46).”

“You may say, “What shall happen to me if my nation has turned towards Satan but I am for God?”. I say to you cry out, where your voice may be heard. Cry out to others, I will hear you and cover you, I will be your deliverer, and I am your God. My covenant will remain forever. I have settled these things in the heavens and will establish them upon the earth. I shall not change. So cry out for your nation, cry out for the salvation of others. Cry out for my army of warriors to rise. The fate of the nations once they have been determined, will be sealed. The day is short and much is at hand, the night is approaching. Who will be willing to work? Rise up, and fulfill your calling! Make your calling and election sure. Many men will seek answers but refuse to acknowledge the real truth. Know that old faulty systems and the lies of the enemy will give way and not stand in the face of my truth.”

Psalm 119:89 “Forever, O LORD, your word is settled in heaven.Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands.…”

2 Peter 1:10-11 “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

“So prepare your heart and your mind to run the course that has been set before you. Make the necessary adjustments along the way. For I am uncovering everything. I am even revealing your own heart. I am removing that which is not of me and I am pouring into you even more of my life so that you may live and overcome, says the Lord. I will give you favor and position you so that you may be effective in your assignments. The timing before you is key, make the best of what is given you and do not weary yourself with the evil that surround present circumstances because I will cause what you see as opposition, to work for you. There is a battle even confusion going on in the camp of the enemy.”

“Watch, keep your spiritual eyes open to see and know the way I have prepared for you. I will lead you and guide you through to victory, but you must not allow the distractions of the day to keep you from day to day instructions. I will judge the rebellion of the ways of the wicked. I will release to you everything you need now. Do not judge anything before the time but watch, look, and listen. I will speak to you in the night season even in the darkest hours and you will know the course to take from one place of safety to another, says the Lord. I will release my angels to assist you, even allies in the midst of your enemies to help you. These are my promises to you. Remember I am your redeemer, the one who is working things out for your good.”

“Begin to carry a wisdom concerning what you say because your words have power. Remember to use them for you and not against you. Say what I say.  Know that what the King commands will always be backed by the Kingdom of Heaven. You will overcome the kingdoms of this world through your faith and trust in me. Utilize and walk in the strategy of my kingdom as I direct and strengthen you. Continue to withstand every lie and opposition of the enemy. You have already obtained the anointing to walk in what I have given unto you. You have what you need and it is far more than you think you have.”

“Speak, direct, move any opposition that stands before you. Quit ye like men, for the army is increasing, growing, accelerating and it is becoming more powerful. As the forces of darkness begin to loom, greater so shall my army be for my glory shall cover you, as you move forth.”
“Beloved, behold you shall have victory even in this coming storm, as you are faithful unto me, says the Lord.”

1 Corinthians 16:13 “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. Let all your things be done with charity.”

1 Samuel 12:23-25 "Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by ceasing to pray for you; but I will instruct you in the good and right way. Only fear the LORD and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. But if you still do wickedly, both you and your king will be swept away."

I had two very vivid visions and a very significant dream:

1.)    I was with my daughters getting the last things needed in anticipation for preparation of something that was about to occur. It was turning into sunset but it was still light outside but as darkness was coming in—I heard a loud crackling sound then a sound of a surge of some type—I saw bolts of electricity at the same time—then all of a sudden the power completely went out. No light. No nothing. We appeared to be a couple blocks away from our destination so we quietly pulled over. People were panicked a guy said to us that the street which he just came from power was out everywhere no lights were seen for miles away. There was confusion.

2.)    I dreamed I was on the phone talking to a prophet telling him about the above vision as I was talking to him (I saw in the spirit, a fairly large hand held device that had a red rim around it—it has a grid on the face of it) I begin to share what I saw over the phone and I heard a loud sound—I was being told by someone in the house that something just happened (I don’t know if it was being reported (on the TV) or it had just happened outside but I assumed it was outside.) I woke up some- what startled. Both 1 & 2 happened 2 days ago.

Isaiah 60:1-2 "Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. 2"For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you.…

3.)    I saw a vision of a large group of people who were in formation. It was like I was observing the phases of actions that were prophetically coming to pass.

a.) Others begin to join those who were already standing in the group. 

b.) Then all of a sudden others joined but the formation changed, I could see between them, because some that were in the front were no longer in the front but others replaced their positions by coming to the front and others fell in place. It was like a shifting formation. But no one left.

c.) After the movement there was a pause then a sound and the entire group closed ranks and I could no longer see between them for they had closed ranks. I knew that meant they were ready. The group went from many to a number that could not be numbered.

Joel 2:7 “They run like mighty men, They climb the wall like soldiers; And they each march in line, Nor do they deviate from their paths.”

(I knew it was the army of the Lord)

Prophetic prayer request: Calling all gatekeepers, intercessors, watchmen, leaders and precious members of the body of Christ.

1.      Cry out for our nation, let your voice be heard, ask others to cry out, pray for the salvation of people and our land that is hanging in the balance.

2.      Pray for Israel, pray for the peace of Jerusalem and against war, retaliation, backlash that it would not come against God’s people. 

3.      Pray for the release of God’s provision to come upon his people in natural and supernatural ways from every direction and place.

4.      Pray that God’s judgment will expose, uncover and will sweep the church and the land. Pray for a cleansing at all cost. (Jezebel and her lies must be uprooted.)

5.      Pray for Christians and their churches who are being persecuted by evil ruler-ship in various nations. Pray for their protection in all regions across the globe everywhere.

6.      Pray that the spirit of civil war in Syria will not carry over to a civil war here in the USA. Cover all decisions being made now behind closed doors (hidden and known).

7.      Pray that no toxic chemicals and toxic waters will come into our water systems.

8.      Pray that all the evil plans within the banking systems will be uncovered and exposed.

9.      Continue to pray around the spiritual gates of our nations (the spiritual place where major decisions will be made) and to call down confusion upon the camp of the enemy.

10.  Pray against the spirit of uncleanness and that the eyes of the body of Christ will be opened. Pray clarity and discernment will be strong and the truth in us will not be compromised under any circumstances.

11.  Pray that the army of God will arise and do great exploits.

12.  Continue to pray protection over women and children. Cover in prayer those who are being potentially being trafficked, killed, aborted and abused throughout our nations. 

  Let pray during significant watches, prepare around the clock prayer, develop places of prayer. Pray without ceasing!
