A State of Desperation

A State of Desperation

by Lonnie Mackley Mar. 19th, 2014

2CO 1:8 We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life.

Many of the wilderness remnant are experiencing a profound state of desperation right now with overwhelming trials, sicknesses, financial needs, and relationship issues. They are desperate to hear from God, and desperate for relief from their seemingly unbearable situations. And on top of all this, God’s presence and voice seems very far away right now. But this only “seems” that way.

2CO 1: 9 Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.

The Lord has actually been bringing us to a state of greater faith and repentance through what appears to be an unending nightmare of difficulties. It’s time to seek God in a deeper way through prayer and worship whether you feel like it or not, or whether you have had much success in the past. If you will pray, the Lord will meet you in a new way now, and breakthrough will finally come.

1PE 5:10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.

Word of the Lord

Word of the Lord
through Patricia Hamel
March 11, 2014

I am indeed speaking to my servants the prophets for they are to come up higher.  I am calling on My servants to lay aside all the cares of this life and come higher for I am indeed looking for intercessors that will stand in the gap for many.  I am calling you by name and in the night hours you will answer me.  There is no more time for delay but it is time to seek Me with your whole heart.  Intercessors lay aside all that is not of me, the frivolities of daily life and seek My face for the suddenlies of daily life will soon be upon you.  What will you do then but say, I missed God because I was too busy?  I missed the Lord because I spent too much time doing this or that!  I say unto you seek Me while I may be found!  Seek me with your whole heart. 

The enemy has sought to destroy those that have a heart for Me.  He has sought to drain you of strength through daily attacks but I say to you I am raising up a standard and the gates of hell will no longer prevail against you because you will take the sword of the Lord and do battle against the foe.  You will take the sword of the Lord and fight against all that is not of Me.

There have been times when many of mine have been ready to give up but I say to you do not give up but stand.  Stand in the gap and be that intercessor I have called you to be.  Take time and come aside with Me my beloveds.  Take time and come away with me into the prayer chamber.  I have called you into the bridal chamber and would speak words into your heart.  I would speak to you about the issues of life that are coming against mankind and give you answers to lay before My people.  The key is will you take time and be the intercessors I have called you to be.  Will you take time to lay on your face before me and seek me with your whole heart?

Distractions, distractions, distractions, this is what has been coming against my servants the prophets!  They are distracted and the enemy is no longer going to be able to defeat you as you stand together.  My body needs to stand together and not be as lone rangers.  Come together, close ranks and seek My face.  Time will soon be no more and all that seems so important will no longer be.  Seek Me while I may be found and I will answer you.  I will show you deep and wonderful things and you will have the fear of the Lord in your hearts.

 I will place you before men, many of them are in places of trust in this hour and need guidance.  You will stand before kings and those that are in authority and will speak the Word of the Lord and counsel men great in this world and their hearts shall be turned and they shall hear the Word of the Lord.  Not all will come but they will hear and either reject me of accept that which I say for I am God.  There is no other beside me and it is time that man  know that I am God.  I am the Lord, stand in awe of Me for I am the Holy One and your soon coming King.  Rise up and give praise to Me for I am holy.  Praise My holy name.  Indeed, I come quickly so rise up and do the work of the evangelist and see them come in as you lay out My plan of salvation, that I am the only way, truth and life.  I am truth and life and Jesus is My name.  Come to Me and come quickly, for I am the Lord, and behold I come quickly.

He saw that there was no man, And wondered that there was no intercessor; Therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; And His own righteousness, it sustained Him.  Isaiah 59:16

The Valley Of Dry Bones

Donna Raphael


You find yourself in the valley of dry bones.  It is a place in which all provision and joy have dried up and been gone for a long, long time.  This is a hard place seemingly devoid of all life.  It is hard to hope anymore, but the word of the Lord comes to you today to breathe life and hope into your spirit.  Rise up in His strength and power.  For surely the Lord speaks to your spirit this day.  Prophesy to those dry bones.  Prophesy the resurrection life of the Lord into your valley of dry bones.  It is not too late.  It is not impossible.  For with your Lord God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.  Just hear and do as He commands...prophesy life to those dead bones and He shall breathe His resurrection power and life upon them...and they shall indeed live again!  It shall be as He has spoken. Only be brave enough to believe Him and do as He says.  Prophesy as the Lord says...

Ezekiel 37:
The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,
2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.
4 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.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13 And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.
