Where Is The Power?

The Lord said to me yesterday many do not walk in the Spirit’s power because they refuse to walk through times of testing.

The Gospel has never been weak – but the Church and it’s Body are weak when we do not allow the perfect power-filled Word to test us. We do not have endurance because our faith hasn’t been tested. (James 1:2-4). We settle for comfort, and complain God has not “done” for us. The fruit is immaturity that tastes not the sweetness of the Vine.

Maturity is not how much you “know”, maturity is how much you yield. Mature sons and daughters yield to the leading of testing and pruning. The Holy Spirt led Jesus into the wilderness to be tested and 40 days later He came out “armed with the Holy Spirit’s power”. Where is the power? It will be given to you to the degree that you yield to the Holy Spirit.

“From the moment of his baptism, Jesus overflowed with the Holy Spirit. He was taken by the Spirit from the Jordan into the wilderness of Judea to experience for forty days the ordeal of testing by the accuser. He ate no food during this time and ended his forty-day fast very hungry.” Luke‬ ‭4:1-2‬ ‭TPT‬‬
40 Days later ….
“Then Jesus, armed with the Holy Spirit’s power, returned to Galilee, and his fame spread throughout the region.” Luke‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭TPT‬‬

A Worthy Heart

This morning I had a powerful vision I pray blesses you. I was praying in the Spirit and I sensed I was in the courts of Heaven. There was a weight on my heart, and I very much felt the accusations of the adversary. I had bound these spirits to the foot of the cross in English, and broke any agreement that they were part of my identity. However, there was still something being prayed through me. As I yielded to the Spirit I went into a vision and saw Jesus’ hand (index finger) writing w o r t h y in His blood over my exposed heart.
I asked the Lord for Scripture and two passages came to mind.

“So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One.” Romans‬ ‭8:1‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“Your hearts can soar with joyful gratitude when you think of how God made you worthy to receive the glorious inheritance freely given to us by living in the light. He has rescued us completely from the tyrannical rule of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom realm of his beloved Son. For in the Son all our sins are canceled and we have the release of redemption through his very blood.”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:12-14‬ ‭TPT‬‬

The blood of Jesus closes the case in the courts! The enemy uses his index “pointer” finger to accuse the body, Jesus uses his index finger to authenticate truth over your heart and prophetically point you to the legitimacy of your identity. The enemy lies to intimidate with ‘all that you are not’, while Jesus speaks truth into all that you are.

Revelation 12:10 writes that the accuser of our brothers and sisters (who are the body of Christ) relentlessly accuses us before God day and night. As we grow and mature in our spiritual journey warfare shifts in awareness and intensity, but one thing will remain; the truth of God’s Word. Sometimes we will find ourselves in the courts of Heaven (and not always on the defense) but when your heart is pure and united to Christ’s, you can remain confident you will “win the case”, for the release of redemption is through His very blood. His blood made you worthy to receive this beautiful inheritance- beloved identity in Him to rule and reign with Him.
May we look to Jesus beholding all that HE is, may we incline our ear to His voice and hear the words of life from the Author and finisher of our faith. (Hebrews 12:2).

The Will Of The Heart

I have been giving warning words and dreams since I was literally a young child. I don’t enjoy it, but I aim to be obedient and walk in the fear of the Lord. I have seen the outcome of when people do not heed the warning. I’ve actually seen people lose everything. One time at just five years old I warned a family member not to marry a man, I cried through the entire wedding. Two weeks later I had to run for help as this man I warned about tried to beat and strangle the newly married woman. And the stories continue over the years, so it is with great reverential fear I deliver what I believe I am to write or say. The weight is sometimes accompanied with a grieved heart when you see them (the person, persons, nation etc) choose to go their own way.

It feels helpless, because I can pray for ears to hear and eyes to see but ultimately it is an issue of the persons heart – and that comes down between the person and God only. One of my triggers used to be when I didn’t feel listened to, and well that still doesn’t feel great!

There is a weight to our words, to our choices, to our will. Destiny is hinged on obedience, like dominos many other lives are affected by just the slightest of our choices. Sometimes lives swing in the balance of an unknown eternity on these hinges. (And the Bible says even the “elect” will fall away).

Then I think of Jesus, He gave His life! Crucified to win our souls and ultimately our hearts. There is no greater display of love… and I can only help but think how His heart must feel, to be TRUTH Himself and yet not be listened to knowing He shed His blood and made a way, the complete and perfect pathway to eternity! But it doesn’t end there, He also extended provision to live an unchained life here on earth.

If you’re a preacher, a house mom, a student, a king – it doesn’t matter how much you have or how little. You will be judged the same. Your heart and your will belong to you, with it what will you do? Who and what will you choose?

But for Love, I will drink this cup

The paradox of love and suffering. In love Christ suffered for us, and He still suffers for our love. Our hearts may suffer long on this side of Heaven but we become like Him and know Him in this mysterious realm. Some of us have more prolonged aches than others, and many times we ask, “not this cup, please”. The cup of long suffering. But for love, for union with Him.

“Love suffers long”.
1 Corinthians 13:4

“And just as we experience the abundance of Christ’s own sufferings, even more of God’s comfort will cascade upon us through our union with Christ.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭

“And I continually long to know the wonders of Jesus and to experience the overflowing power of his resurrection working in me. I will be one with him in his sufferings and become like him in his death. Only then will I be able to experience complete oneness with him in his resurrection from the realm of death.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:10-11‬ ‭

Justice Speaks

When praying for America today and feeling heavy, the Lord reminded me of two things.

First, He reminded me of the time when I was at the roller skating ring with my brother. We were unsupervised, and a group of young boys were pushing and taunting him. He was crying and I being three years older, and about 8 years old at the time stood up to the bullies for him. In return, I was punched in the stomach and the wind was knocked out of me. I had no regrets because I was standing for justice. It was not my nature at that age to be talkative, or outgoing. I was actually shy, but when ever I was in a situation of injustice, or I just knew something was “wrong”, I almost always spoke up.

A similar memory happened with my younger sister, except this time I was several years older. We were skiing in northern Michigan with family friends, and though she was beside an avid skier she was gaining speed down the hill at a faster pace escaping our friends beside her. I stopped ahead of her and was trying to block her because she was headed straight for the trees. We were all yelling “pizza”, “pizza” (the shape you make with the skis to slow down) but she just gained more momentum. In order that my sister didn’t fatally wound herself, I stepped in and had her run into me, I was the thin barrier between she and trees at this juncture. The collision knocked me over and the wind out of me, but my sister didn’t suffer injury. I was sore for awhile but if I hadn’t intervened there could have been a detrimental outcome.

Secondly, the Lord said to me “Purim would not be Purim if Esther had not spoken up”. Purim began last night at sundown and is celebrated through today and extended into Sunday in Jerusalem. It is the most joyous of the Hebrew festivals, celebrating the liberation of the Jews from Hamon’s evil plot to rid them from the world. Esther risked her life, and spoke to her husband who was also the King to plead for the lives of her people.

Many in the Body have felt like the wind has been knocked from them. But guess what? You are still breathing! Your voice is needed in this hour. Do not stand down. Some people have been taking “hits”, and at first it may seem justice is not prevailing but keep going. You are equipped to avert plans that would harm, or bring injury to your brothers and sisters in Christ. Esther is the story of risk, Faith, and favor. Speak up, take that risk in faith and the favor of the Lord will be with you!

“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Unfailing love and truth walk before you as attendants.” Psalm 89:14

“Then Esther spoke to Hathach and gave him a message for Mordecai, saying, All the king’s servants and the people of the king’s provinces know that any person, be it man or woman, who shall go into the inner court to the king without being called shall be put to death; there is but one law for him, except [him] to whom the king shall hold out the golden scepter, that he may live. But I have not been called to come to the king for these thirty days. And they told Mordecai what Esther said. Then Mordecai told them to return this answer to Esther, Do not flatter yourself that you shall escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?” Esther 4:10-14 AMPC

The Birthing of The New Wine – the connection between John Wimber and Purim

Not long ago on February 1, 2021 at 4:02 AM the Holy Spirit woke me and I heard “fruit shipping’s” as I simultaneously saw a vision of a wooden cart of giant grapes covered with a velvety-like cloth. These grapes looked like what were described in the land of Canaan in Numbers 13:23. I knew the Lord was reminding me of the new wine and movement coming that He showed me in a vision on July 19, 2020.

Today on this 25th day of February is John Wimber’s birthday, a well known spiritual leader most recognized for fathering the vineyard movement, and this evening at sundown begins Purim, the most joyous holiday on the Hebrew calendar. There is an unlikely connection between the two that the Holy Spirit showed me in a vision in July that has everything to do with today, and the season upon us, a time of visitation and miracles. I hope you will read and be encouraged.

(Below is an excerpt from “Wait Now, I’m Coming” 9.1.20)

Wait Now, The Father The King and The Spirit are Coming! The Birth of New Wine in Fire, Power and Love!

On July 19, 2020  I happened to be staying at my grandparents house and I was in the bedroom when I went into a vision at 8:54 a.m.  In the vision it was dark out, and I saw a heaping mound of wood and sticks and a large match reach in from the bottom to create a massive bonfire.  As the match was moving in I heard in the Spirit, “John Wimber’s birthday”.  I immediately had a knowing that a signifiant move of the Spirit would take place on or around this date, the “birth-day”.  On this same day I heard in the Spirit “Deuteronomy 4:12” which reads, “And the Lord spoke to you out of the midst of the fire.  You heard the voice of the words, but saw no form; there was only a voice.” A literal interpretation of the vision! However in context the Lord was reminding Moses this is where you encountered my manifest presence, the shekinah glory. This is when I gave you My covenant. Shekinah is from the Hebrew word shakan, and means “to reside or permanently stay”. (chrisitanity.com).  My grandparents last name as well as mine is Sutherland, our Scottish family clan motto is ‘Sans Peur’ which means, “without fear”.   I had this vision in the bedroom which represents intimacy and the secret place. World wide households have been tested and tried by fire, but from the secret place we will arise without fear!  I believe the Lord is saying His glory is coming forth from the fire! “I have not forgotten my promise to you, it has been tested and this is when I will erupt in power and dwell with you in tangible glory, I am coming in a fullness that you have yet not seen.”

Although I knew John Wimber was an important part of church history, I didn’t recall what exactly he was known for – all that was coming to mind was an association with California. Grapes should have been my clue!  As I went to search this out, I discovered Wimber was born February 25, 1934 and his most significant legacy is the Vineyard movement, as he eventually took leadership of the Vineyard churches.  Additionally Wimber is known for advocating and teaching the moving in healing, signs and wonders, intimacy with the Holy Spirit, and equipping the Church (https://vineyardusa.org/about/john-wimber/).

Prompted by the Holy Spirit I searched for John Wimber’s birth date on the Hebraic calendar and found a birthday surprise! The month of February falls in the month Adar, the last month in God’s cycle of feasts / yearly cycle and represents the completion of a season.  Adar means strength and is known as the most joyful month of the year when Purim is celebrated. Purim is the story of Esther who was chosen to be the queen of Persia because of her beauty.  Esther risked her life to go before King Ahasuerus and expose an evil plot of his advisor Haman to destroy the Jewish race.  Esther was encouraged by Mordecai to boldly petition the King, “For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father’s house will perish.  And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?.” Esther 4:14.  Esther found favor with the King, the plan was reverted and Haman was hung on the very gallows he built to destroy the Jews. Purim is always celebrated on the 14th day of Adar and this 2021 will begin at sundown on February 25, John Wimber’s birthday!  

Another insight in the birthdate 02.25.1934: I found Revelation 2:25 and Strong’s number 1934.  Again the month Adar means strong – Strong’s 1934 in Hebrew is hava’ meaning to exist; become, behold. In context the Scripture reference in the book of Revelation is speaking to the church of Thyatira, who is being admonished for tolerating Jezebel, but to those who have not tolerated the teaching they are beckoned to “hold fast to what you have until I come” (Rev 2:25). I believe toleration of Jezebel is the current position of the unawakened Church, but for those who are the remnant Bride, in this hour we can hear the Lord saying hold fast, “Wait now, I’m coming!”. If we will live, abide and exist in Him and like Esther address and petition His heart boldly in the secret place, if we hold fast to the truth that He gives and behold Him here, we will see the coming dread Warrior King defeat our enemy.  The enemies plot will become his own demise.  The Naphtali are the tribe associated with the month of Adar, and Naphtali means “sweetness is to me” (Godtime.blog). We will know the King intimately and find His favor, we will taste of His goodness and declare, “sweetness is to me”. Like a deer let loose, this will be a beautiful time of rejoicing for The Church across the globe.  “Naphtali is a doe let loose, [a swift warrior,] Which yields branched antlers (eloquent words).” Genesis 49:21.

John Wimber is also known for ‘fathering” the Vineyard movement. Jesus said, “I am a true sprouting vine, and the farmer who tends the vine is my Father. I am the sprouting vine and you’re my branches. As you live in life union with me as your source, fruitfulness will stream from within you – but when you live separated from me you are powerless.” John 15:1,5. To the vine abiders, ‘this is that’ new wine! The time stamp on this vision was 8:54 a.m. and John 8:54 again points back the Father. “Jesus answered them, “If I were to tell you how great I am, it would mean nothing. But my Father is the One who will prove it and will glorify me. Isn’t he the One you claim is your God?” A new season is upon us, a double portion for mankind and a move of His Spirit that will allow us to experience Himself in the fullness of triune measure – Father, Son and Holy Spirit in a completeness yet not expressed as we have understood before. The Father is coming in this move to glorify His Son! I believe the Lord is saying these will be the days as described in 1 Corinthians 2:9, “This is why the Scriptures say: Things never discovered or heard of before, things beyond our ability to imagine—these are the many things God has in store for all his lovers.”  

The Lord is coming to tend His vine and seek His glory dwellers, we are those He has called to experience His glory.  It is through pure hearts we can see and encounter Him and become hosts of His presence. “But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” Habakkuk 2:14. The Lord is coming in love and power and and I believe this partially represents a marriage of The Word and The Spirit. This marriage will be accompanied by a tremendous weight of the Lord’s presence and I hear in the Spirit “He will move massively among the masses”.  I physically feel this weight around hearts, people around the globe will be so awakened to the deep places of the heart of the Father that a world wide revolution of love will ignite.  They will see and experience Him in Spirit and in Truth, they will know the Lord as lover and friend and their earthly fear of Him will begin to dissipate.  The true fear of the Lord will bring Wisdom and a Spirit of Longing will overcome them. “Come Warrior King, pour the new wine!”.

“Your presence releases a fragrance so pleasing— over and over poured out. For your lovely name is “Flowing Oil.” No wonder the brides-to-be adore you. Draw me into your heart. We will run away together into the king’s cloud-filled chamber. We will remember your love, rejoicing and delighting in you, celebrating your every kiss as better than wine. No wonder righteousness adores you!” Song of Songs 1:3-4

“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.” Psalms 16:11

Reverse America

America, America, God shed His grace on thee. America, a place where principles of covenant and life were once revered. We have distanced ourselves so far from His greatest sacrifice, where from our eyes once looked upward we now look inward. Disconnected we mistakenly pattern, and give holy offerings to the enemy of our God.

We have drifted so far from Love our hearts have become worn and bitter. We have refused to let the pruning hook of our loving Creator tend to our hearts and in great contrast have welcomed and normalized the pruning hook of strangers into our wombs (abortion). We have willingly surrendered our two greatest treasures, our love for God and our offspring; we have rebelled and murder His image growing within. We have forsaken the secret place for carnal intimacy, and with longings unfulfilled we perpetuate a backward cycle that ends in physical and spiritual death. We have exchanged our oneness with God for a mortal copy of intimacy; we have submitted to systems we were not created for.

We honor death and abandon life. The wages of sin is death. We perish for lack of knowledge. It is time for a divine ‘reverse’. Turn around, come back to the higher way of thinking and spiritual order.

“So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord;”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭3:19‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

The Mindset of Miracles

If I told you that your miracle was on the way, you would more readily approve or ‘like’ this message. If I suggested that you repent, you would probably disengage or ignore the message. But what if repentance was the key to your miracle? To repent means to change your mind and be restored to a higher way of thinking.

I encourage you to ask the Lord how your mind could change. Are there thought patterns that hinder your moving forward?

The Heavenly Kingdom is at hand, and we must change our thinking to perceive and receive it. John the Baptist prepared the way for the coming of Christ with this message. And we will prepare the way for Christ’s return with this message as well. Jesus worked miracles as a sign and to testify He was from His Father’s Kingdom. Shift your mind, the patterns of this world are not from the patterns of Heaven. The gospel is power unimaginable to all who will receive it, so I bless you with a greater measure of faith to attain the fullness held in His Name.

“IN THOSE days there appeared John the Baptist, preaching in the Wilderness (Desert) of Judea And saying, Repent (think differently; change your mind, regretting your sins and changing your conduct), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭3:1-2‬ ‭AMPC‬‬
