"Prophecy: It's Time to Leave Your Past in the Dust"

In his classic novel A Tale of Two Cities, British writer Charles Dickens opened his books with words that I can relate to: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." I don't know about you, but that describes my 2016.

There were tremendous breakthroughs, but there was also tremendous warfare. There were many new Kingdom relationships formed, but some were also lost to spiritual combat. There were many new doors of opportunity, but there was also tremendous pressure! I've learned we do more spiritual growing during the hard times than we do during the easy times—and God is faithful.

Every year at this time I look back on the last 12 months. I take account of the good times and the bad times—I thank God. And then I declare that the coming year is going to be my year! As part of this process, though, I am also careful to leave the past in the past. I know if I want to freely walk through the divine doors God is setting before me I need to leave the pain of the past season behind.See, I take God at His Word:

"Do not remember the former things nor consider the things of old. See, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not be aware of it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert" (Isaiah 43:19).

Is the Past Blocking Your Path?

God wants to do something new in your life this year but there could be something that's getting in your way—besides the flesh and the devil. It's called the past. Hear me: You need to press past the pain of your past. If you aren't willing to press past the pain of your past, you will never have total victory in your life.Consider Paul the apostle's words in Philippians 3:13-14:

"Brothers, I do not count myself to have attained, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal to the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."

You have three choices: (1) press past the pain now; (2) press past the pain later and be miserable until then; or (3) keep the pain forever. No one can do this for you. You have to do your own pressing.

So what does it mean to press? It means "to exert steady force or pressure against something." We have to press against the pressure that's coming against us. There's pressure against our momentum. There's pressure to go backwards. There's pressure to give up altogether. The pull of the past is a demonic strategy that works like a magnet. It keeps trying to draw us back. We have to demagnetize our souls.

I'll tell you right now, pressing past your pain will cause suffering. But you can either suffer the way you are, or you can suffer through the pain of change and into victory. When the pain of change comes, our flesh looks for an exit.

Our souls would rather stay in the familiar pain than press through the unfamiliar pain. We don't want to suffer, but our suffering will only truly end when we get to the other side of the pain. Pressing is not fun—it's hard work—but the reward is great.

Leaving the Past in the Dust

I heard the Lord say, "It's time to leave your past in the dust, shake the dust off your feet, and walk in the future and hope I have planned for you." Leaving your past in the dust often means renewing your mind.

"So if you're serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don't shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that's where the action is. See things from his perspective" (Colossians 3:1-2, Message).

What's His perspective? His perspective is that we are

e are not alone because He will never leave us or forsake us. We have the oil of joy, the garment of praise.

God is our vindicator (Psalm 4:2-4). He will repay those who hurt us. He will heal our grief. He will bring us new relationships. He will do it. Our job is to love Him with all of our hearts and minds and trust Him. I like to meditate on two key Scriptures: Romans 8:28, "We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose," and Genesis 50:20: "But as for you, you intended to harm me, but God intended it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many lives."

Let this be your confession:

"Jesus, I am willing to press past my pain and into victory. I am more than a conqueror in You. You understand me. You know my hurts and my wounds and my grief and my loneliness. But You are here to deliver me. I refuse to remain in the past any longer. I exchange mourning for joy, praise for heaviness. And I thank You Lord that I can press on toward the mark of the prize. Pain, you can't stay. I command you to leave my soul in the name of Jesus. I am free from pain. I am renewed in the spirit if my mind. I am victorious!"

In life, some may walk, others may run, but remember the Lord gave the tortoise and the horse the same days to reach Noah's ark. Your journey might be rough and tough but you will definitely get to your destination.
Jacob looked at Joseph and saw a good son! The ten brothers looked at Joseph and saw a useless dreamer! The travellers looked at Joseph and saw a slave!! Potiphar looked at Joseph and saw a fine servant!! Potiphar's wife looked at Joseph and saw a potential boyfriend! The prison officers saw in Joseph a prisoner! How wrong were all of them! God looked at Joseph and saw a Prime Minister of Egypt in waiting!! Don't be discouraged by what people see in you!! Be encouraged by what God sees in you!! Never underrate the person next to you because you never know what the Lord has deposited in that person. Your maid may be a Chief Executive Officer in waiting for a company which shall employ your child. Your garden-boy may be a president in waiting. (Remember David got the anointing of becoming a King while he was a simple child herding sheep. Esther was a simple orphaned girl yet she was a Queen in waiting). Let's share God's love and make the world a better place to live. Show that love by sharing this message with those you love.
IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW PEOPLE SEE YOU, IT MATTERS HOW GOD SEES YOU
God is God:
He doesn't care about *age*, no wonder he blessed Abraham.
He doesn't care about *experience*, no wonder he chose David.
He doesn't care about *gender,* no wonder he lifted Esther.
He doesn't care about *your past*, no wonder he called Paul.
He doesn't care about *your physical appearance*, no wonder he chose Zacchaeus
(the shortest one).
He doesn't care about *fluency in speech* , no wonder he chose Moses.
He doesn't care about *your career*, no wonder he choose Mary Magdalene; a prostitute. 
All I know is that my God never changes
He never made *a promise he wouldn't keep*
He never saw *a person he wouldn't help*He never heard *a prayer he wouldn't answer*
He never found *a soul he wouldn't love*
He never found *a sinner he wouldn't forgive*
This is the kind of God I would like to commune with every day the moment I wake up. I strongly recommend Him to you.

Except From My Book: THE BOLD STEP

Face to Face With a Hitch!

We all know the creation story. Gen 1 gives a vivid recollection of the course of creation. I have studied this story over and over and a few things are worthy of note:

*There was a problem, a hitch that would have constituted some kind of resistance to God's perfect design for earth and what was that?
It wasn't sin, satan, or demon.
It was emptiness, darkness and shapelessness!
(Take note of these three, we will be considering the latter on.)

What was God's attitude towards these three and what should be our attitude too? 

God did two things: First, His Spirit brooded upon the face of the deep!
But why would He let His Spirit do so first? He is God, He would have told darkness to vanish! God does not do anything independent of His word and His Spirit. God will always consult His word and His spirit on any operation before commencing. This ascertains the unity of the God-head. I'll come to that shortly.

Secondly, by God's spirit brooding UPON the FACE of the deep, God was simply making it clear that He was in charge and total control of darkness. Why the face? The face because God's attitude towards stubborn issues is CONFRONTATIONAL and OFFENSIVE and this, too, should be our attitude.

This takes us to God's second action - Speaking to the situation. "Let there be Light"! What kind of sentences is this? It's a command! Here is God using His word to command the entrance of light. God was neither negotiating nor diplomatic with darkness and so, He gave a command! He spoke from His office and position as the one in charge. He did not talk the problem which was darkness, He did not go murmuring or complaining, He did not even examine or analyse the dept of the problem, we have no description of how dark the darkness was because that is not relevant. He gave a command!  These, too, should be our attitude.

Do you know what baffles me the most as I go through this creation account?
God did not even mention darkness, one would expect Him to command darkness off first before calling light but He didn't. He simply spoke the solution He needed which was light! We all know that without light, we cannot do anything. I do not need to emphasise the significance of light. God knew that the entrance of His word is automatically the exit of darkness. God is not a brawler, He speaks what He wants and He does what He says .He consciously employed this medium to teach us that when the word of God saturates our life, we can't stumble in the dark; we would know exactly what we want; and get it with the Help of both His spirit and His word. God wants us to know that without light(insight and revelational knowledge of Him) there's bound to be misplace of purpose and priority " The entrance of the word giveth light and understanding to the simple" God Himself needed light first to help Him create every other thing including Man. He needed light to see, appreciate and bless His creation. We need light too to create every of our desires in life.

Something more to pounder over in this story is the fact that God Himself came face to face with  a challenge;  God had a picture of how He wanted the world to be but here was darkness, voidness and shapelessness staring Him at the face; that was a challenge! I thought everything would have been reorganised in it's proper place at the mere appearance of God. I'll submit that God wants us to know that no man born of a woman is without one challenge or the other. If God in His Almightiness, splendour, grandeur, majesty and power could come face to face with a challenge of that kind, then challenges are inevitable in life but our reaction towards it determines the outcome of the situation!

If what you want to do will become good and beautiful like God's perfect creation, then Expect a hitch, Confront the hitch and Speak forth your desired solution. God saw darkness but He spoke light. Everything God created where first created in His mind before the actual creation.........

LET US RUN THE RACE DILIGENTLY

As I dressed up to go out this morning, I am once again reminded of how personal and private this race called life is.
I get into my car, drove out, and joined the road where other cars are already travelling on.
Lesson number 1: We don't all have the same entry point into life.
As I keep driving, I pass some other cars, while other cars would pass me. 
Lesson number 2: We won't travel through life at the same speed because each car is built differently.
As I moved on, I catch myself trying to pursue another car in front of me, only to discover that, just as I am about to pass it, it turns off the road into another road.
Lesson number 3: We don't all have the same exit point.
We are all on this journey called life. We will enter at different points and exit at different points, but one thing is clear: we will all exit this road at one point in time or the other. It may be 10km run God has given you, or it could be 100kms; what is important is that you run your race well.
Your car has sides view mirror and a rear-viewmirror. You use both to see the sides and the back of your car respectively. Other cars will be behind you, while others may be beside you for a while.
But you know how dangerous it is to spend time looking at these mirrors; they will distract you. That is why your car has got a large windshield\screen in front of you. It gives you the biggest view of the potential in front of you and the resources you are yet to attain.
Don't spend precious time looking at your back to see those who are pursuing you, or looking at your side to see those who are trying to overtake you. Keep your eyes in front of you and stay true to your race.
When it is time to exit the road, you would know that you have run your race well and ended well.

I humbly pray God to bless and help you as you run this race called LIFE. Remember, lay aside every weight and sin and patiently run your race by fixing your eyes on Jesus Christ the Author and Finisher of our faith,

LOVE MUST BE BASED ON TRUST

‘May the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another.’ 1 Thessalonians 3:12 NKJV

The real test of trust in a relationship is to be able to share your secrets and struggles, your inner fears and failures—intimacy based on honesty. It takes courage to be honest with God, and even more to be honest with one another.

The relationship between Adam and Eve is described in these words: ‘They were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.’ (Genesis 2:25 NKJV) They were open and transparent with one another because there was nothing to hide or be ashamed of.

Perhaps you’ve been so hurt by a relationship that you’ve said, ‘I will never trust anyone again.’ That’s because you’re not healed yet. To never trust again is like living in a tower. You’re safe from life’s threatening grasp, but you’re so detached from life that you lose consciousness of people, places, dates and events. You talk only about the past because you stopped living years ago. Good news! ‘He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.’ (Psalm 147:3 NIV)

God’s healing process can set you free to taste life again, trust again, and live without fear. Don’t isolate, celebrate. Regardless of whether you’ve lost a marriage, a partnership, or a personal friend, you’re still alive! Are you ready to live, or are you going to continue rehearsing what no one, including you, can change—the past?

Some of us are graced to live alone and feel complete and fulfilled. If you are one of them, go for it! But if you’re not, trust God to bring the right person into your life at the right time

BE A CHEERFUL LEADER

‘Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.’ Proverbs 12:25 NKJV

Why do we find it easier to be a critic than a cheerleader?

(1) Our self-importance. Once we’ve achieved a certain level of success, we think that ‘we know best’. But sometimes what we are ready to teach, people are not ready to learn. And at that point we have a choice—back off and let God deal with them, or try to ram it down their throats. In such times we’d do well to remember the old adage: ‘A man, convinced against his will, is of the same opinion still.’ Perhaps there was a time when you yourself were not very teachable, so pray for them and allow God to work according to His time scale.

(2) Our gifting. We don’t stop to consider that our talents and experiences are unique to us—given by the grace of God (see Romans 12:6). So we expect everyone else to come up to our level, and we put them down when they don’t. ‘Except the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain who build it.’ (Psalm 127:1 NKJV) Back off and let God work on them!

(3) Our earliest experiences. We are moulded by the attitudes of our caregivers. They nurture in us the coping mechanisms, positive and negative, that we work with. Indeed, some of our parents actually believed that praise would hurt us and criticism would help us. So we must change our way of thinking and begin to line up what we say with what’s in the Word of God. ‘Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.’

If You Want it, Give it

‘You will be given a full amount in return.’ Luke 6:38 CEV

One night a man came to Mother Teresa’s house and told her about a family of eight who hadn’t eaten for a week. When she got there she saw the faces of little ones suffering from malnutrition, so she gave them a sack of rice. Then the children’s mother did something interesting. She kept half the rice and went out carrying the other half. When she returned Mother Teresa asked, ‘Where did you go?’ She answered, ‘To my neighbours; they’re hungry also.’ Mother Teresa says, ‘I wasn’t surprised that she gave; the poor are usually very generous. But I was surprised that she knew they were hungry. As a rule, when we’re suffering we’ve no time for others.’

The Bible teaches that when you focus on the needs of others God will make sure your needs get met too. (See Ephesians 6:8) So if you want it, give it! Here’s why: (1) Giving is the key to blessing. Jesus said, ‘If you give to others, you will be given a full amount in return. It will be packed down, shaken together, and spilling over into your lap.’ (2) The seed you sow now decides the size of the harvest you’ll reap later. No seed is too little to multiply if you’re willing to sow it. By finding a cause greater than your own self-interest and pouring yourself into it, you discover two things: first, it’s ok to acknowledge your limitations as long as you don’t build your life around them. Second, God’s blessing is released when you give what you have instead of talking about what you don’t have.

So if you want it, give it!

The Principle of reciprocity

‘God has heard your prayers and knows about your gifts to the poor.’ Acts 10:4 CEV

Up until this time the Gospel had been preached exclusively to the Jews. But all that was about to change: ‘One afternoon at about three o’clock, Cornelius had a vision. He saw an angel from God coming to him and calling him by name… “God has heard your prayers and knows about your gifts to the poor. Now send some men to Joppa for a man named Simon Peter.”’ (Acts 10:3–5 CEV) As a result of Cornelius’ prayers and generosity, he became the first Gentile to hear the Gospel and be saved. What a payoff!

God hears the kind words you speak to others when they’re hurting. He sees your sacrificial giving when you can least afford it. By doing what you’re doing, you’re paving the way for God to help you. He’s storing it all up so that in your time of need you’ll have a rich account to draw on. A lady was praying about starting a pet-grooming business but she couldn’t afford to advertise. So she went to her local animal shelter and volunteered to groom the pets to increase their chances for adoption. Interestingly, the harder she worked, the more her own business grew by word of mouth until she ended up with more clients than she could handle.

You say, ‘Does that mean if I don’t help others God won’t help me?’ Thankfully, no! God’s love is unconditional. But when you say ‘no’ to an opportunity to give, you miss out on an opportunity to receive. The principle of reciprocity is simple: when you’re generous with others, God promises to be generous with you. (See 2 Corinthians 9:6–8)

LET GOD TAKE YOU HIGHER

"Let Him Take You Higher!

7 Key Areas for Growth in 2017"

1. Rest & Refreshing

"For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said: 'So I swore in My wrath, 'They shall not enter My rest,'' although the works were finished from the foundation of the world… There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His." Hebrews 4:3,9-10

2017 is going to be a time for rest and refreshing in the presence of God. That is good news! God wants to take His people to another level of rest. When we rest from our own striving we enter into place of faith in the finished work of Christ. Jesus died so that we could enter into the rest that He has provided saying, "Come unto Me all you who are weary and heavenly laded and I will give you rest..." (Matthew 11:28)

An amazing statement is that "the works were finished from the foundation of the world." God finished the work a long time ago. What is that work? It is the word of our salvation, our walk, our life and everything that concerns us. When we choose Him to be our Source and Help every day then we can enter into that finished work that He has accomplished. This is the essentiality of living in the presence of God. Find that rest today by taking time to just commune with the Holy Spirit as He is your source of life and strength.

2. Saturation & Impartation of the Holy Spirit

"And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God." (Ephesians 5:18-21)

This is going to be a year of saturation and impartation of the Holy Spirit. It's time to get SATURATED! Don't take a sip, go for the guzzle! Drink well of the Holy Spirit. Welcome the Holy Spirit. Don't be casual, but be intentional about being radical for God's Spirit to saturate your life.

Jesus made a statement that is profound and something we need to pay close attention to. After He was resurrected from the dead He spoke to His disciples saying, "Go and wait in Jerusalem until you receive power from on high" (Luke 24:49). He was telling His disciples not to try to do things in their own flesh, but to wait. Have you ever noticed that waiting can really be the "hardest part"? People typically don't like to wait. Jesus was making the point that apart from Him we can do nothing. Our dependency upon the Lord is crucial for us to have "overflow" in our lives. God wants us saturated in His glory.

The Lord gave me a vision of the Holy Spirit saturating people this year and how it was spreading to others. There was impartation from one person to another. When God floods our lives there is an overflow that passes from one person to another. Religion and bad teaching has made people believe they have nothing to give. Even when someone may be filled with the Spirit, experiencing this overflow, they don't release what they have.

When God pours into you His manifested tangible presence. Believe that you have something to give. Don't be shut down by the tentacles of religion. Find freedom in faith knowing that God's presence and glory is in you and is "transferable."

3. A Year of Running Faster & Climbing Higher

"Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple. For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. And the God of peace will crush satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen." Romans 16:17-20

A few weeks ago the Lord showed me that as we run faster and climb higher the enemy is neutralized. In this dream I was running out into this wide open field, I saw this tiger coming out after me. I outran it and quickly climbed this tall tree. The tiger tried to come up but I kicked it down with the bottom of my foot. It fell down hard on a branch below. Then tried to come up again. Once it got to where I was it had been declawed and tamed by a woman who suddenly appeared in the tree. The tiger had been neutralized because of the height and level of glory. The woman represented the Holy Spirit. There is something called a "snake line" where snakes cannot exist. As we pursue the Lord, running faster and climbing higher in His Presence, the enemy will be made of no effect.

This is a beautiful picture of how we are seated in the heavenly places with Christ, and that the enemy is under our feet. The passionate pursuit of God will also deliver you from the religious mind-sets that attempt to bind and hinder you. Find freedom and victory as you move into a powerful place of pursuit in the Holy Spirit. Find the high places of the Holy Spirit!

4. Restored Authority to Believers

"Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, 'Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.' And He said to them, 'I saw satan fall like lightning from Heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in Heaven.'" Luke 10:17-20

It is time for "restored authority" for Believers. I say specifically Believers because if you don't believe it will not happen. Faith is the foundation for our authority. Believing the words of Jesus, the Word of God is essential for our faith to be alive and active.

God wants to release His people from condemnation, fear and shame. These are the foes of authority. They keep people hampered down in a place of guilt. Realize the power of the Blood of Jesus. One drop of the Blood of Jesus eradicates condemnation, guilt, fear and shame. Confess, repent and be restored to your rightful place of authority.

Much of what people experience is "false guilt" for things that have been forgiven of a long time ago. Give glory to God by magnifying the Blood of Jesus and the power that abides here. Realize that His Blood is much more powerful than your past. Receive His forgiveness, be restored and move into the will of God for your life. As Believers, He has given us authority over all the power of the enemy. The enemy is under our feet. The peace of God is the place from which Jesus functioned in the anointing. He, being the Prince of Peace, destroyed the works of the devil out of that place of peace.

Recognize how important it is for you to walk in the peace of God. This is a key to your authority in Christ. Be awakened and receive the authority that Jesus has given you as a son of God. Have faith, confidence assurance and authority in the Lord to "TRAMPLE" on serpents, scorpions and all of the power of the enemy realizing that NOTHING shall BY ANY MEANS harm you!

5. Davidic Revelation

This year will have a restoration of Davidic Revelation. The Lord began to impress on me to note the value that He has placed upon the life of David. Not the value that He HAD placed, but that He places on the life of David.

Take note that there is a "Key of David", A "Tabernacle of David" and "the Throne of David" that God has chosen to honor David with. David wrote the majority of the Psalms, he was a king, a warrior, a prophet (see the Book of Acts) and obviously a psalmist. The last mentioned being the foundation for all the rest. If David has not been a true worshiper of the Lord then all the rest would not have happened.

 

• The Key of David

"And to the angel of the Church in Philadelphia write, 'These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens." Revelation 3:7

Here we see the power of the "Key of David", how Jesus holds this key. AMAZING! How would you like the Son of God to hold a key with your name on it? The power of this key is to open doors that cannot be shut and to shut doors that cannot be opened—a very powerful key. A few years ago I had an encounter with a "Breakthrough Angel." This angel told me that more than all the prayers, decrees and other stuff we can do, WORSHIP was the most powerful weapon because it drew the angels of God activating them to bring breakthrough. David was a worshiper that knew God in the most intimate of ways. I believe this is why so much honor is given to his life in the Bible. This is the same David that said, "The Lord has broken through my enemies before me, like a breakthrough of water." (2 Samuel 5:20)   

Open doors and discover breakthrough with the Key of David in worship!

 

• The Tabernacle of David

"On that day I will raise up The tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, And repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, And rebuild it as in the days of old." Amos 9:11

Again we see the "Tabernacle of David" valued by the Lord, and His desire to restore it in our day. This is the house of worship and prayer. We see this parallel in our personal lives of devotion and in the corporate expression. We are God's house, both individually and together. Don't you know that you are the temple of the Holy Spirit? God wants to "tabernacle" inside of us both individually, and as the Body of Christ. We cannot have one without the other and see the fullness of what God wants to pour out. It has to be BOTH! One of my favorite chapters in the Bible is Psalm 133:

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!It is like the precious oil upon the head,Running down on the beard,The beard of Aaron,Running down on the edge of his garments.It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the Lord commanded the blessing—Life forevermore.." Psalm 133:1-3

• The Throne of David

"Of the increase of His government and Peace there will be no end, Upon the throne of David And over His Kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this." Isaiah 9:7

We have seen the Key of David, the Tabernacle of David and now we see "The Throne of David"! God is making a statement here. Here we have Jesus Christ establishing His Kingdom on the Throne of David. How amazing is this? What is the Lord speaking through this? Why the Throne of David? Again, it is the heart of David. The man after God's own heart that God has said, "This is where I'm going to establish My Kingdom!"

What we see is God's decree that He will INCREASE His government and PEACE and there will be NO END, that He will order and establish it with judgment and justice forevermore. This is an increase in His Kingdom expansion where the glory of His Kingdom will go forth throughout the earth without end. All of this being established with the "Heart of David" being central to all of this happening.

6. Miracles

"And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them." Matthew 4:23-24

Over the last 6 months "miracles" have continued to be an emphasis and will be on the increase. God will be "mentoring people in miracles". There will be fresh teaching, understanding and learning concerning how to work miracles. Just a note, Jesus said, "You go heal the sick, cleanse the leper and raise the dead..." (see Matthew 10:8). He was not afraid to put us in the position of being the ones who healed and delivered. We all understand that it is His power and the point is to give Him ALL THE GLORY!

There will be a restoration of training in miracles in a greater scale. In this passage above we see a 3-fold pattern where Jesus taught, then He preached and then He demonstrated the miracles. This year we can embrace miracles at a whole new fresh level as to teach, preach (decree, proclaim and speak forth) and demonstrate the power of God.

7. Life Restored (The Color Green)

"Then Jesus said to them again, 'Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.'" John 10:7-11

This is a year where "Abundant Life" will be manifested! I had a dream recently where Lorne Green came to me and had black hair. If you remember the father in Bonanza that was Lorne Green. In this dream he was a mentor in miracles. I asked him where most of his miracles happen, but he did not respond. Everything about the name Lorne Green is connected to the color green. The meaning of Lorne essentially means to be "crowned with life!" This speaks of authority to release life.

Definition of Lorne: Means "crowned with laurels" – an aromatic evergreen shrub related to the bay tree, several kinds of which form forests in tropical and warm countries. The last name Green seems simple enough. But I was amazed once I began to look at the definition of "green." Definition of Green: Color Meaning, the color of life, renewal, nature, and energy, is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness, safety, fertility, and environment. Green is also traditionally associated with money and finances.

God has called us to live in the fullness of miraculous life to the overflow with more than enough in every area of spirit, soul and body. This is a call to miracle authority and power in every area. God has called us to prosper in every way. When we look up the word for abundance there is nothing "half-hearted" about it. It is excessive! Are you ready for an excessive life in the Lord? Let it be on earth as it is in Heaven!

The word in the Greek for the word "abundant" used in John 10:10 is g4053, περισσός perissos. This word means: in the sense of beyond, superabundant, superior, excessive, preeminence, exceeding abundantly above, more abundantly, advantage, exceedingly, very highly, beyond measure, more, superfluous, vehement(-ly).

God is calling us higher in 2017 in every way. Let us say YES to Him and to the blessing of God upon our lives as He loads us daily with His benefits!

"Blessed be the Lord, Who daily loads us with benefits, The God of our salvation! Selah." Psalm 68:1

GOD WILL TURN THINGS AROUND FOR YOU

January 18, 2017

"God Says: I Will Turn Things Around! This is a Comeback Year!"

 

 

Some of you really...and I mean really...need to get this as we shares:

I hear the Lord decreeing that 2017 will be an incredible Comeback Year! "

It is a hopeful word which carries the connotation of a resurgence of good times, revival and times of victory... It is the person who has failed time and again finally triumphing and attaining success. It is the underdog who may have suffered horrible losses and heartbreaking defeat, who through sheer determination rises above every barrier and obstacle to obtain the prize. It is going from a position of being broken down to a position of breaking through! This is a year to see setbacks turn into comebacks!

Can some of you relate to this? I think we ALL can! Please make sure and forward this word to everyone you know...this is a must read for the new year!

Be blessed and get ready for your comeback!

 

"God Says: I Will Turn Things Around! This is a Comeback Year!"

 

You crown the year with Your goodness, and your paths drip with abundance. (Psalms 65:11)

 

Each year I, like many other prophetic people, take time to listen to the voice of God specifically to hear what His heart is for a new year, or a new season. I believe the purpose of this is to gain an understanding of God's heart and purpose so that we can properly position ourselves in prayer and in perspective, standing ready to work with Him to bring the Kingdom of God to earth. In this Hebrew year 5777, it is a year of covenant blessing, a year of contending for favor, and a year of new spiritual wells of refreshing springing forth. The symbol for 7 in Hebrew resembles a sword, or a vav (that which connects Heaven and earth) with a crown on top of it.

 

This is a Crowned Year of God's Goodness...Our Paths Will Drip with Abundance!

 

I hear the Lord decreeing that 2017 will be an incredible Comeback Year! "Comeback" is actually a single word meaning, "A regaining of success, fame, health, prosperity, recovery, to return to a former good position or condition after a loss, the act of making up a deficit as in a contest or game, to become fashionable again, a spirited, clever reply."

 

It is a hopeful word which carries the connotation of a resurgence of good times, revival and times of victory. A "Comeback Story" is one in which someone succeeds against impossible odds, often through overcoming a time of struggle. It is the "come from behind" story that has everyone cheering.

 

It is the person who has failed time and again finally triumphing and attaining success. It is the underdog who may have suffered horrible losses and heartbreaking defeat, who through sheer determination rises above every barrier and obstacle to obtain the prize. It is going from a position of being broken down to a position of breaking through! This is a year to see setbacks turn into comebacks!

 

The number 17 is tied throughout Scripture to victory, overcoming the enemy and yes, spectacular comebacks. As the Lord spoke about a Comeback Year in 2017, I looked at Biblical stories which are full of people who seemed to have everything going against them—defeat, failure, sin—only to find they were the Comeback Kids of the day.

 

Moses was a murderer and a fugitive who became a deliverer and was known as a friend of God. Joseph was the dreamer, forgotten in prison in a foreign land, who became the prime minister of the greatest empire of the day. David was an adulterer and a murderer who became the greatest king Israel ever knew and whose legacy is that he was a man after God's own heart. Job lost everything, through no fault of his own, yet God restored double of ALL that was lost. The Temple was destroyed but then rebuilt again twice the size with Babylonian money! Peter denied Christ three times but was used by God to preach to win 3000 souls on the day of Pentecost. Jesus—the greatest comeback story of them all—was beaten, crucified and killed, yet conquered death, hell and the grave and came back to life and is now seated with honor at the right hand of God! Wow!

 

With those great examples of comebacks we should all be excited about what is ahead! It's a year to celebrate 500 years of Reformation...the comeback of the power and authority of the Church. It's a time for continued and intensified Divine Reversals, which the specific emphasis this year of seeing some things turned upside down (which we will see actually means right side up).

 

It's a time to see every curse reversed, the plans of the enemy upset and dead dry bones coming back to life! We will see a comeback in our nation, in our economy and of the voice the Church has to impact culture and shape the world. This year the authority of the prophetic voice of God will make a comeback to challenge us all to rise to new demonstrations of miracles and the supernatural and to occupy new places of authority. A Comeback Year is here!

 

In the Comeback Year, Divine Reversals Intensify!

 

At the end of 2014, I heard the Lord say we were entering a three-year period of time where He was going to do incredible miracles and turnarounds. The purpose of this period was going to be, "To restore hope to the Church so that the Church can restore hope to the world." I believe that we are in the midst of some of the most exciting times of turnaround for victorious comebacks that many of us have ever experienced in our lives.

 

Then at the beginning of 2015 (the first of those 3 years), the Lord spoke to me and said, "Tell My people I am bringing them into a season of Divine Reversals. I will turn things around for them." I was studying in the book of Esther at the time and saw the evil decree of Haman that was released to bring death and destruction to God's people. Esther went before the king and the scepter of favor was extended to her so she could tell the king what was at stake. The king then told her to write a new decree in the king's name and seal it with the king's signet ring so that it cannot be reversed.

 

Then in Esther 9:1 it tells us, "On the very day when the enemies of the Jews hoped to gain the mastery over them, the reverse occurred: The Jews gained mastery over those who hated them."

 

It was a massive time of divine reversal for the Jewish people. Their mourning was turned to dancing and their sorrow was turned to celebration and joy. Interesting when I looked up the word reversed in Hebrew it was the Strong's Concordance number "2015"! It is the Hebrew word "Haphak" which means "to reverse, to overturn, to overthrow, to transform, to turnaround."

 

We began to see Divine Reversals for people's health, families, finances, legal situations, etc. We truly entered a period of time of Divine Reversals and turnarounds. Deuteronomy 23:5 uses this word haphak when it says, "I will turn (haphak) the curse to a blessing for you because I love you, says the Lord."

 

We must keep our minds focused on the fact that Jesus came to give us a divine reversal in every area of our lives! From death to life. From sickness to health. From poverty to abundance. From sorrow to joy!

 

How 2016 Set the Stage for 2017 – A Year of Chaos and Contention That Brought Dry Bones to Life

 

In 2016, I looked further at this word and found the Strong's number 2016 is the word "hephek" and also means reversal and turnaround, but it carries a connotation of a time of contrariness and opposition. We saw this clearly manifested in culture in 2016, a very contentious, contrary year in the earth.

 

During this year, the Lord spoke to me out of Ezekiel 37 where the prophet is told to prophesy to the valley of dry bones. The phrase "dry bones" comes from the convergence of three Hebrew words: shame, disappointment and confusion. The picture of a valley full of dry bones indicates a place of horrendous defeat in a past season.

 

The prophet is told to prophesy life to that impossible scene. As he did so, there was a sound of shaking as the dry, dead bones came to life. The word shaking in Hebrew means the sound of chaos and confusion.

 

Clearly, the contentious political battle in the US, racial unrest, economic instability, as well as political upheaval in many nations in the earth, brought a sound of chaos and confusion in the earth. Christian values found persecution and seemingly lost ground in the US and the west, while in other places in the earth Christians were being beheaded and persecuted on a new level. The anti-Christ spirit along with an anti-Christ agenda seemed to be gaining ground at the expense of religious freedom. But God was reversing death and turning it into life! The sound of contrariness and chaos was necessary for the dry bones to come together.

 

God told the prophet to prophesy again at this point, but this time he was to prophesy breath. This is the second wind of the prophetic movement, which we are currently in, that will transform the dry bones into an exceeding great army. It's time for prophets and prophetic people to release God's revelation from their mouths, calling those things which are not as though they were. Prophesy life! Prophesy peace! Prophesy reversals! We must open our mouths and speak it and decree it for ourselves to see it come to pass.

 

The Lord had spoken to me at that time that the Church was "out of breath". He wanted to breathe new life into us so we can arise as that exceeding great army of Believers...a force for righteousness, justice and freedom in the earth.

 

The word used for breath is ruwach meaning "a violent exhale, bringing courage, releasing a prophetic spirit, imparting warlike energy and executive and administrative power, endowing men with various gifts, releasing the energy of life, releasing the manifestation of the Shekinah glory of God."

 

In John 20:21-22 it says, "Jesus said to them again, 'Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.' And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit.'"

 

This is a time for us to take time in God's presence to allow Jesus to breathe on us and fill us with His Holy Spirit again so that we are ready to release His breath in the earth. Allow His breath to transform every area of dry bones in our lives into a prophetic expression of warlike energy, power and life, which will release the Shekinah glory of God everywhere we go!

 

What a Comeback! From dry, scattered bones to an exceeding great unified army!

 

2017...A Year to See Upside Down Become Right Side Up

 

Which brings us to 2017. The word, "hophek," which is the Strong's Concordance number 2017, also means a time of reversal, but also means "to upset, to turn things upside down." Since the world culture is already upside down, I believe God is decreeing this will be a year to turn that which is upside down right side up! It actually says of the early Church that they were known as "those who turn the world upside down" (see Acts 17:6. Also notice this verse comes from a chapter 17! Lots of chapter 17's are about victorious comebacks).

 

We are to be God's change agents impacting culture through proclaiming what God is saying through building bridges of reconciliation in places of division and contention, and through praying God's purposes of Heaven to connect with earth. "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven!"

 

The word "upset" has several meanings which speak to what is ahead in 2017. It means to overturn. God will overturn power structures this year (see Haggai 2:22). It means to perturb or to disturb mentally and emotionally. As the world is turned upside down, or right side up, we must position ourselves in the Word, in prayer and in peace. Peace is our portion. The joy of the Lord will be our strength. Do not allow anything to rob your joy this year. Things will be stirred up...remember it is a reformation year and often reformations are messy. Keep your heart focused on Jesus and His promises to us in the midst of challenging times.

 

But upset also means to defeat or overthrow an opponent who is thought to be more formidable. An upset is when an unrated football team beats the team ranked first. Don't count yourself out! Don't count others out! It will be a year of surprises! Don't quit! Your time of the greatest victory is before you! Remember, your setbacks are merely setups for your comebacks! Great things are ahead! What setbacks do you want to see become comebacks?

 

Psalm 65:11, You have crowned the year with Your goodness, our paths will drip with abundance.

 

500 Year Anniversary of Reformation – The Church's Greatest Comeback

 

On October 31, 2017, the Church will be celebrating the 500-year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation marking the day Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg church and declared "the just shall live by faith." This event triggered a major shift out of the Dark Ages, where the then existing Church barely held any resemblance to the first century Ekklesia that Jesus gave His life for. It ushered in a time of fresh revelation and restoration, which was tumultuous to say the least, yet was a major comeback for the Church. Biblical truth made a comeback. God's heart revealed for mankind made a comeback. The working of the Holy Spirit made a comeback. Relationship with God over religious form and ritual made a comeback!

 

This will be a Reformation Year. The spirit of personal reformation will bring Believers into greater connection and intimacy with the Father. Those who have gotten discouraged in their faith will receive fresh oil. Passion for Jesus will make a comeback for many! The challenge for this year is to allow God's personal place of reformation to bring change in our hearts so we will be equipped to carry reformation into the places of influence in the world.

 

The anointing for Reformation will bring a spotlight on new Biblical truth and revelation so the Church can experience a resurgence of affluence and influence in nations throughout the earth.

 

Over the last several years, the Church has been divided, demoralized, disenfranchised and even demonized over social issues, political correctness and a drift from critical thinking based out of a Biblical worldview. Rather than being the source of light for our communities, the Church has been increasingly characterized, and yes, demonized as the problem rather than the solution.

 

I feel we are coming into a comeback season where the Church is going to get a bit of a reprieve from all the negative press. The persecution will continue as we live in a culture hostile to Christianity, however, I believe this gives the Church time to teach Believers how living their lives out of a Biblical worldview sets them up for triumph. At the same time, this apostolic/prophetic reformation will bring a greater divide between those churches who have determined to promote casual, comfortable, politically correct Christianity (in name only) and those who have decided to be the "army of the Lord," willing to pray and yet also willing to engage culture to bring change.

 

In the US and other nations, we will see this reformation spirit bring change to government and governing. With the unanticipated "comeback election" of Donald Trump, we have the potential to see a reforming of the Supreme Court and other courts in the US, a reformation in the economy, a reformation in foreign policy and a realignment of nations, and many other areas of governance.

 

As was seen in the Protestant Reformation, this can be a very messy time. Some things will be turned upside down. It is vital for the Church to pray as never before for the President, his cabinet, governors and local government and spiritually steward the reformation taking place in the land. Our mistake will be to put our trust in a man to save us. We must pray for God's wisdom on the man, but put our trust in the Lord. Our Appeal to Heaven to see reformation and awakening come to the Church and to our nation has just begun!

 

One more note on this subject...I heard the Lord say, "That which seems to be done can still be undone." I heard this when I was praying about the UN resolution against Israel, but feel it has even farther reaching applications. What was meant for evil against Israel will be turned for its good. What was legislated to bring evil to our nation can still be turned for our good. We can personally apply this as well. Whatever the enemy has tried to use to make you feel trapped or hopeless, stuck in circumstances or situations that refuse to change...remember the word reformation means to change.

 

This will be a reformation year...a time of Divine Reversals and a time when every setback is transformed into a set up for a comeback! Believe and receive in Jesus name!

"We're Entering the Realm of Abundant Blessing & Overflow!"
 

I pray that this will be a year of abundant blessing in your life! May the Lord release an abundance of anointing, miracles, grace and divine supply! The Lord has been speaking to me about the realm of abundant blessing as we come into this new year. Jesus said, "The enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy, but I am come that they may have life and have it more abundantly" (John 10:10).

We know that the enemy's strategy is to create destruction in our lives. Yet, Jesus said He came to give us abundant life! The word life is translated "Zoe" in the Greek, which means the God kind of life. You are called to live the God kind of life! This life is not a life of lack but a life of abundance; a life of overflow! Do not settle for anything that is not God's best! God wants the very best for His children!

A Life of Overflow

"Ask, and you shall receive that your joy may be full" (John 16:24). It's the Lord's desire to give good gifts to His children. As the Word of God says, He wants to give us the very desires of our hearts (see Psalm 37:4). God spoke to me and said,", I want to bring you into the realm of abundant blessing!"

I believe it's a word for you as well. God has been speaking to me about His Body and how He desires that the Church receive a shift in thinking to understand that God will not only supply our needs, but He wants to give us an abundant supply! The Bible says that my God shall supply all of your needs, according to His riches in glory (see Philippians 4:19). There is a place where God supplies your needs and He will sustain you! He will provide for you beyond a shadow of a doubt! Yet, there is a realm where God brings you into an abundant supply.

"Now to Him who is able to (carry out His purpose and) do super-abundantly more than all that we dare ask or think (infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams)." (Ephesians 3:20 Amp)

Raise Your Expectations and Look to Him

God would have us to lift our expectation and believe in Him, not only to supply our needs but for God to bring us into a place of abundance and overflow (see 1 Corinthians 10:1). I began to think of the children of Israel and how they were set free from the bondage of Pharaoh, and the Lord brought them out of Egypt with a strong and mighty hand. The Lord sent His cloud!

The purpose of God sending the cloud of glory was to provide for the children of Israel. They ate manna everyday from the cloud as they were in the wilderness. The cloud kept them from sickness, and also protected them from their enemies. This is what God's cloud and His presence does in our own lives. Yet, the wilderness was not the final destination; the final destination was the Promised Land. A land that flows with milk and honey—a place of abundant supply and overflow!

If you recall, it was right before Joshua and the children of Israel took the land of Canaan that the manna ceased from coming. "And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year."Joshua 5:12.

You may ask, "Why did the Lord stop sending the manna, right before they were going to take the land of Canaan?" Because God wanted to bring them out of the realm of just enough, and lead them into the realm of abundant blessing!

I declare abundance and overflow today in every area of your life! I speak breakthrough over your life: Breakthrough in finances, in relationships, in opportunity, in Jesus' mighty name!

Let abundance and breakthrough be yours in 2017!

The purpose of God sending the cloud of glory was to provide for the children of Israel. They ate manna everyday from the cloud as they were in the wilderness. The cloud kept them from sickness, and also protected them from their enemies. This is what God's cloud and His presence does in our own lives. Yet, the wilderness was not the final destination; the final destination was the Promised Land. A land that flows with milk and honey—a place of abundant supply and overflow!

If you recall, it was right before Joshua and the children of Israel took the land of Canaan that the manna ceased from coming. "And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year."Joshua 5:12.

You may ask, "Why did the Lord stop sending the manna, right before they were going to take the land of Canaan?" Because God wanted to bring them out of the realm of just enough, and lead them into the realm of abundant blessing!

I declare abundance and overflow today in every area of your life! I speak breakthrough over your life: Breakthrough in finances, in relationships, in opportunity, in Jesus' mighty name!

Let abundance and breakthrough be yours in 2017!

CHANGE INENVITABLE

"I Am Challenging My People to Change"
 

I felt the Lord say for 2017 that, "I am challenging My people to change."

We hear the word challenge and might immediately think that is a negative thing. Here is the definition of challenge:

1. A call or summons to engage in any contest, as of skill, strength, etc.
2. Something that by its nature or character serves as a call to battle, contest, special effort, etc.
3. A call to fight, as a battle, a duel, etc.
4. A demand to explain, justify, etc.
5. Difficulty in a job or undertaking that is stimulating to one engaged in it.

The word that stands out to me in the definition is the word engage. The challenge that God is releasing in this season is a calling to engage. It is a calling to move off the sidelines and get involved in the battle. When we are on the battlefield, we can make a difference in the outcome.

Change:

1. To make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of (something) different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone: to change one's name; to change one's opinion;
2. To transform or convert (usually followed by into);
3. To substitute another or others for; exchange for something else, usually of the same kind;
4. To give and take reciprocally; interchange;
5. To transfer from one (conveyance) to another.

Change is simply something becoming different than it was.

"The Spirit of the LORD will come powerfully upon you, and you will prophesy with them; and you will be changed into a different person" (1 Samuel 10:6 NIV).

Saul transformed into another man when he came into the company of prophets. He now was doing what he could not do before. God wants to bring us into a place of doing and being what we could not do before.

I saw the Lord standing like a ticket attendant at a sports game. We handed the Lord our ticket and expected to get a seat near the front. The Lord then directed us to go up the bleachers, not down towards the field, like we used to. We went away from the field up the bleachers and we were lead to the VIP executive box overlooking the entire field.

Having a New Perspective

We had an expectation of where we were going to sit. He challenged us to change our normal routine of where we used to sit. He took us to a much better seat and positioning. He is challenging things inside of us that are limiting us. Don't be afraid of what God begins to change in your life this next season.

The new opportunities that come to you may be challenging or may force you to engage with greater focus. God is challenging us so He can reveal hidden potential that He has placed inside of us. He is developing and unlocking inside of us Kingdom resources for advancement.

The enemy has tried to cover up our potential and destiny, but God is about to dig it out. Embrace the challenges that you are presented with in this season. Hidden in them are the keys to breakthrough and advancement. God is breaking you out of your limitations.

We see in Genesis 39-42 Joseph went through a challenge. Things seemed to be heading the opposite direction of what Joseph's dream was. God was escorting him to his destiny. He was able to save an entire nation from a famine and be positioned in a new place of authority.

Don't reject or resist the challenge. Trust what the Master Potter is doing in and through your life in this season. He is making something beautiful.

God is challenging the following areas in 2017:

Nations: Many nations will have the chance to restructure for righteousness.

Corporate Church: The Church will have the chance to move to new levels of authority and influence in the earth.

Cities and Regions: These will have a chance to see a new atmosphere released in their territories.

Marketplace: There will be a challenge to have integrity. Those who choose integrity will see new levels of prosperity in business.

Wherever you see things being challenged in this season is an opportunity. God desires to raise you up to become the answers and solutions, like Joseph was to a people and nation.

The Lord says, "I am a challenging My people to change. I am giving them opportunities to transition into a higher level. I am calling them into more authority, resources and demonstrations of power. I am calling them out of hiding and into shining. You were made for the challenge. You were made to bring heavenly answers and solutions into the earth. I am challenging you to run to challenges and let My Kingdom flow through you."

THE VOICE OF THE LORD GOD

"The Majestic Voice of God"
 

Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands; and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a Son of Man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash. His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire. His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters. (Revelation 1:12–15)

God does not only want us to know the historical Jesus, who came in human form and walked among men. He yearns for us also to know the living, resurrected Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Father wants to enable us to hear, know and obey the risen Lord.

But often we don't realize He is speaking to us. And no wonder we miss His cues—His voice is like the sound of many rushing waters! Revelation 1:15says, "His voice was like the sound of many waters." Notice the use of the word many. When it comes to many waters, there is the sound of a gentle, trickling stream; the sound of a thunderstorm, with rain pouring down; the sound of waves crashing in upon the shore; and the overwhelming sound of a river at flood stage, clearing away everything in its ensuing path. God's voice today is like the sound of these many rushing waters.

A Revealing Phone Call

One time, the voice of God came to me in the middle of the night, but I didn't recognize it at first. The ringing of my telephone woke me up. I got up out of bed, went to our kitchen and picked up the phone, only to find there was no one on the other end—just a dial tone. I stumbled back into bed and fell asleep, only to hear the phone ringing a second time. I rolled out of bed, groped in the dark and picked up the phone, only to find again that there was no voice on the other end.

freephoto_telephone_250px_JamesGoll.jpgWearily, I walked back once more to my bedroom and crawled back into bed, only to be awakened a third time by hearing our telephone ringing. Determined to figure this thing out, I went to the kitchen, picked up the receiver and listened longer. I still didn't hear anything. But this time, a still, small voice in my heart whispered, Jeremiah 33:3.

I hung up the receiver, found a Bible and looked up the verse: "Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know." I was stunned by God's invitation, and I spent the next couple of hours just sitting in the quietness of our living room in the presence of the Almighty, communing with Him and listening to His sweet, sweet voice.

Now, folks, that was a genuine God encounter, a personal and unusual way for Him to demonstrate how He takes the initiative to deepen our relationship with Him. He caused the sound of a telephone to awaken me from my sleep. He persisted until He got my full attention. He took me to His written Word. His Word was illuminated by the Holy Spirit and was used to draw me closer to His very bosom. Yes, after He got my attention, I called upon the Lord, and He did show me great and mighty things that I did not previously know!

The Impact of His Voice

Let's read Psalm 29:3-9 to get a better idea of the variety of ways we might be able to hear the voice of God:

The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; 
the God of glory thunders, 
the Lord is over many waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful, 
the voice of the Lord is majestic.

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; 
yes, the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. 
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,
and Sirion like a young wild ox. 
The voice of the Lord hews out flames of fire.

The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; 
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. 
The voice of the Lord makes the deer to calve 
and strips the forests bare; 
and in His temple everything says, "Glory!"

Yes, when the powerful and glorious voice of the Lord comes into our lives, it rolls around in our spirits and "thunders" for a while (verse 3). It grabs our attention. We can't get away from it, and we can't get away from Him. At times, God will manifest Himself as a glorious intruder, as He did with Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus. If and when this occurs, we will never be the same. His voice will rock our world!

 

Majestic and penetrating, the voice of the Lord, "Breaks the cedars" (verse 5). Cedars are a very dense, hard wood. (Have you ever felt someone was "too dense" for the Lord to reach?) When cedars are broken open, they release an irresistible fragrance. God's voice is capable of coming into and mowing down any situation that looms in front of us like an intimidating giant. Out of that once-foreboding giant, the aroma of Christ can come forth.

Have you ever needed to be refreshed in the Lord? Have you lost some of your zeal along the way? Do you need to return to your first love? Then God's voice is the cure. The intimacy of His voice will make you skip once again (see verse 6). You will feel like a child at play, ready to run, jump and leap. Your wildness will even return, and once again you will learn to love adventure.

Psalm 29 continues, "The voice of the Lord hews out flames of fire" (verse 7). Have you ever been scorched by the hot words of God? Sometimes thundering, sometimes quiet and sweet, God's voice can bring intense conviction into our lives. When His authentic fire comes, we may feel like running away from the fire rather than into it. But this fiery word and resulting experience has come to purify us for a useful purpose. Let the fire fall, and let His word purify, cleanse and burn out all of the dross and impurities within your heart.

Moving on to verse 8, we find that the, "Voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness." In truth, this can be pretty uncomfortable. God shakes everything that can be shaken so that that which cannot be shaken will remain. I don't want my life to be built on a foundation that cannot hold up under such pressure. The voice of the Lord will try the foundations of our lives. God makes sure our lives are built upon the solid rock of Jesus Christ and His righteousness. During times of trial, pressure and shaking, we need to let those difficulties propel us to become unshakable.

freephoto_Gods_Voice_250px_James_Goll.jpDo you want creativity to abound in your life? Are you tired of your own ideas and formulas? Then listen for the voice of the Lord, because it makes the "deer to calve" (verse 9). The voice of the Lord creates faith in the hearer. It changes your circumstances from barren to fruitful.

It is never too late for fresh life to emerge. Dormant dreams become activated in a moment by the voice of God. May His word come upon you and cause you to see yourself as a fruitful vine.

"And [the voice of the Lord] strips the forests bare" (verse 9). How do you like that one? God's voice comes, and it removes all the false armor that we rely on. All of our vanities, self-reliance, false images and pretenses are stripped away, and we are left naked before the Creator of the universe. The voice of God brings humility into our lives. According to John 15, it is the tree that has borne fruit that He prunes. So let's be encouraged, looking at the end result and remembering how good He is. If He strips us or asks us to lay something down, He always has a great reason.

God's Voice Today!

God wants us to hear His voice not just yesterday but also today and in a vibrant relationship, with all of its manifestations, so that we can bear much fruit—fruit that will remain.

So let His voice thunder. Let the fire fall. Let His word be magnified. Let the waterfall of His refreshing sound replenish each and every thing. Let all creation echo His sound. Let His still, small voice and His tumultuous voice continue to proceed from the throne of God into our lives.

The voice of the Lord is indeed diverse and majestic. Yes, everything in His temple shouts "Glory!" Come on, now. Do it with me. Give Him some praise, and watch what the Lord will do!

"A New Expectation: He Will Do Exceedingly, Abundantly Above All We Can Ask Or Think"
 
 
Expect! Expect! Don't expect the worst, expect the best! The best is yet to come. The best wine is saved for the last day. Don't wait for the other shoe to fall. But get up on your feet and put on your new shoes of the Gospel of peace that your feet are covered in. Expect a miracle, expect answers to your prayers, and expect the best in you and see the best in others.
Expect the fullness of the promises of the Word of God to come into full view in this new season. Expect the words that He has spoken over your life to come true. For God is the Faithful One. Become pregnant with His vision and birth it in this new season...push! Expect the new birth in this new season that is upon you. I've heard these words stirring in my spirit: Expectation, exceedingly and abundantly.
 
1.) Expectation
Romans 8:19-21, "For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God."
Philippians 1:20, "According to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death."
 
Psalm 84:12, "O Lord of hosts, how blessed and greatly favored is the man who trusts in You [believing in You, relying on You, and committing himself to You with confident hope and expectation]."
 
1 Corinthians 13:13, "And now there remain: faith [abiding trust in God and His promises], hope [confident expectation of eternal salvation], love [unselfish love for others growing out of God's love for me], these three [the choicest graces]; but the greatest of these is love."
 
2 Corinthians 3:12, "Since we have such a [glorious] hope and confident expectation, we speak with great courage."
 
2.) Exceedingly and Abundantly
In Ephesians 3:20, "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us." So in and through Christ Jesus we have this abundance that goes exceedingly above our thoughts, our circumstances, the abundance in Christ goes beyond our human comprehension. We will be exceedingly glad and rejoice. Joy will overcome sorrow.
Psalm 21:6, "For You have made him most blessed forever; You have made him exceedingly glad with Your presence." This will come from His presence and us abiding in His presence.
Matthew 5:12, "Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in Heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you."
Then I heard, "Be courageous, take courage." Like in Joshua 1:9, "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
Be Strong in the Power of His Might.
This is the hour, this is the season – a new season and time to see the power of His might. This is the season of great change. Don't look at the rain, wind and snow in the natural. Don't look at the clouds in the sky and reason with your natural mind. But in the Spirit it is spring time and new things are budding, breaking and bursting forth. New life is coming forth with fresh purpose.
His ways are higher than ours and His thoughts for us are greater. He is removing the obscurities and bringing clarity and His light is shining in our hearts today. This is spring time in the spirit and the turtle doves are singing a love song.
Song of Solomon 2:10-12 Amplified Bible (AMP), "My beloved speaks and says to me, 'Arise, my love, my fair one, And come away. For behold, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth once again; the time for singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.'"
Look in the mirror and see the image of the one who created you in His image. The one who loves you with an everlasting love, the one who has drawn you by His loving kindness. You are His beloved and He is yours. Let old things pass away and behold all things are becoming new.
Let it be today that today is a new day. Let faith arise, encourage yourself in Him today, stir your spirit and arise! This is your time to shine, you were born to shine. Don't settle for anything less. You are His best and you have first place in His heart. You have won His heart with just one look of your eyes. It has been this way for Him before the foundations of the world as you were purposed in His heart for such a time as this in such an hour.
This is your time! You are His dream come true a chosen one; chosen by God who is your Father. So arise and shine. This is your time, the glory of the Lord has already risen on you. Take it today! Dream His dream! Take courage today! Expect today!
So let go! Let it all go! Don't enter in the New Year with old leftovers and stale bread, trying to pick up the crumbs from the floor. Don't enter the New Year with dread, regrets, bitterness or an unforgiving heart. Don't enter the New Year with any disappoint you may have felt in this last year, but drink the new wine of Him.
Shed off the old wineskins and expect that new wineskin to take shape in His image! He will meet you in that place—in that secret place. Embrace a fresh touch from His presence, a fresh awakening of the power of His love for you. Just an ember can become a burning flame when stirred with His love for you. Let first love be renewed. Be confident of this very thing—that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it to the end...expect it!
