(… and more) Voices Of Hope Broadcast 6.22.21
“But the Lord is with me as a dread warrior; therefore my persecutors will stumble; they will not overcome me. They will be greatly shamed, for they will not succeed. Their eternal dishonor will never be forgotten.” Jeremiah 20:11
On Friday, July 10, 2020 at 1:20 a.m. I woke up from a very intense and sobering dream. In the dream I had walked out of my parents former house that we lived in for many years. I locked the door behind me, and when I turned to move forward to leave as I looked across the street I realized how dark it was. I started to simultaneously see in the Spirit in the dream and I saw elementary students getting ready for school across the street early in the morning, and at the same time I saw and heard the sound of the trumpet. The trumpet was in the sky and resembled a round small military bugle, like that of the civil war. My immediate thought was it was autumn when the time changes and we “fall back”, otherwise known as daylight savings time. Within moments, almost instantly the darkness increased and I felt an overwhelming pressure of fear in the atmosphere that was moving toward me quickly, and soon became dreadful. I turned back to unlock the door but it had become so dark in the matter of seconds that I could not even see my hand in front of my face or my keys. I saw in the Spirit beyond the door and could see that my grandmother (who had never lived with us in the natural), Mary Magdalene, was coming to my rescue. I saw her and heard her voice excitedly and lovingly exclaim, “Wait now, I’m coming!”. Here I awoke out of the dream alarmed and rebuking the thick darkness.
In the dream I had a knowing it was the end of September, yet in the natural daylight savings in the States this year is not until November 1, 2020. I believe this is revealing a window of time when the intense darkness will increase, and yet also a grace warning that we may prepare in the natural and in the Spirit. When the Lord reveals the plans of the enemy we have the ability to rise up in the opposite spirit and thwart his plans just like a real battle. The Lord shows us the enemies plans so we can pray against them, and that we may petition for Heaven’s strategy to be made known to us. When we are seated in Heavenly places we will always agree with the will of God and it is from this position we bring Heaven to earth and decree His goodness and restoration. Yet in balance, when I wrestled with Lord over sharing this dream and the vision below, He corrected me with words He had spoken to Ezekiel regarding being an obedient watchman, “The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, speak to your people and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman, and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not heed the warning and the sword comes and takes their life, their blood will be on their own head.” vs 1-4 of Ezekiel 33:1-20. And yet still, the prophets of old often negotiated with God!
This is the first time I have heard the Spirit call in the sound of the trumpet, and I carefully and prayerfully have been writing according to what would bring the most edification yet also deliver the warning message. As I have been meditating on this for weeks now, I believe the Lord was highlighting specifics of the dream that are important for its interpretation. The home address was 17381 Wiltshire Blvd, Lathrup Village and at the end of our street was a barricade. The other side of the barricade was another city, Southfield, and in fact Lathrup Village was originally acquired as property within the larger city of Southfield by Louise Lathrup Kelley in 1923 who ‘conceived and carried out its unique development’. You were able to walk into the city of Southfield from our street as the sidewalk continued, but obviously you would be unable to drive through as the barricade served as a divide between the cities. There was only one entrance driving down our street because of the barricade, our house was on the right side of the street making the vision of children and the trumpet on the left side of the street.
The meaning of the name Louise can be translated ‘famous warrior’ or ‘famous in battle’. Lathrup surname originated in Yorkshire (England) in the East Riding were they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. Lathrup can also be translated – ‘man from the farm with the barn, or barn’. Kelley surname means ‘descendant of war’, ‘strife’, or ‘contention’ (houseofnames.com).
1923 is the year Louise Lathrup Kelley acquired property ‘conceived and carried out its unique development’. Strong’s number 1923 in Hebrew is Hadar – magnificence, honor, majesty. Strong’s number 1923 in Greek is Epigrapho – to inscribe (physically or mentally): inscription, write in. The meaning of the address 17381 which provided an entry way to safety and provision; 1 “oneness of the Godhead”; 7 “completeness” & “perfection”; 3 “The Holy Spirit” & “three-fold cord not easily broken”; 8 “new beginnings”; 1 “oneness of Godhead” (biblestudy.org). The meaning of Wiltshire is a place-name and “means shire centered on the Wilton”. Wilton means “farm where the willow trees grow”. (houseofnames.com).
The Warrior and The Key
A famous Warrior conceived in honor and wrapped in majesty who is magnificent in battle is in the East Riding and holds a family seat as Lord of the Manor (Revelation 19:11). This famous Warrior also owns a farm with a barn (Psalm 50:10), that serves as provision for those who He has inscribed on His heart and bear His last Name; these are His descendants of war enduring strife and contention in the city. Though there be a great divide, there is a refuge in the small city within the larger city, a secret place. There is only one way to arrive at the address, and only one key that will open the door in unforeseen darkness.
Psalm 91:1 “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].” I heard in the Spirit, “The Lord is looking for His covenant keepers”. Our natural key’s will not unlock the door to the secret place, but rather this key is seen with the spiritual eye, and it looks like a covenant ring and it is named the key of intimacy. In the Hebrew, the word for dwells is yashab, Strong’s 3427; to sit, remain, dwell. Additional words used in the definition are married and marrying. The secret place of protection is a place for those who are married to the presence of God. Many find themselves teetering from a stance of love and believing the promises of God back to fear struggling to ward off the lies of the enemy, they are unstable. But as we read above, our stability comes from dwelling. The wise warrior will choose the empowerment of union. Paul wrote of this union and of its importance one verse prior to the instruction of wearing the full armor. “In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].” Ephesians 6:10.
If you will dwell in secret place of the Most High (located at 17381) in oneness with the Godhead (1), He will complete and perfect His way in your life (7) as you come into full agreement with the Triune (3) and cultivate together new beginnings and new plans (8) blessed in the seal of harmonious communion (1).
The secret place will be the shelter where intimacy’s key unlocks mysteries, promises and dreams that position you to ‘conceive and carry out unique developments’ and blueprints for the next outpouring, the new wine. We don’t have to be tested by the way of the world; in a season when society is ‘falling back’, when the light is dimmer, when evil relentlessly pursues the innocent, when there is militant civil unrest and great divides (reference to dream “Southfield” – the civil war began when southern troops bombarded Fort Sumter, S.C. and the military bugle was of civil war era), – it is here, in the center of the chaos there is a way of escape, a hideaway named The Secret Place. Remembering their covenant ring, the Mary’s, or Mary(ed) (married ones) fall into the presence of the Most High surrounded by His holy flame. (Zechariah 2:5). When our obedient love remains in union here, the promises of God become infused into our being as we are captivated by His passionate flames. “The words and promises of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified and tested seven times over.” Psalm 12:6. I had the above dream July 10th which numerically speaks of complete testing. The later half of this word which is from a vision was received on July 19th, and between the two encounters we have nine days which numerically speaks of complete birthing. The secret place is not only a refuge, but a guarded place for testing and a protective place for birthing. Allow Him to perfect and complete the good work He began in you. (Philippians 1:6). Choose the Lord’s testing in the secret place and unseen riches will be born.
The Warrior Dwells In and Among You
The Warrior dwells in and among you, be empowered through your union with Him! We love because He first loved us and it is our Warrior King’s delight to marry us. “I will set My dwelling in and among you, and My soul shall not despise or reject or separate itself from you. And I will walk in and with and among you and will be your God, and you shall be My people.” Leviticus 26:11-12. This is His promise to us when we keep His covenant and remain and abide in Him. “The LORD will fight for you while you [only need to] keep silent and remain calm.” Exodus 14:14.
The dread of the enemy can not compare to the dread of our Warrior King. He wars for your heart and is jealous for His Bride; His burning heart for you warrants an arrest on all that hinders you from His love. Our Warrior King defeated hell and the grave to live eternally with you! “For His love for you is a living and consuming flame, sealing you as a prisoner of His love. His passion for you is stronger than the chains of death and the grave.” (pharphasing Song of Solomon 8:6). “But the Lord is with me as a dread warrior; therefore my persecutors will stumble; they will not overcome me. They will be greatly shamed, for they will not succeed. Their eternal dishonor will never be forgotten.” Jeremiah 20:11. I believe Jeremiah 20:11 is the anthem of the dream, “Wait Now, I’m Coming!” and prophetically tied we can interpret the Lord’s time and date stamp so specifically. The “fall back” date is 11.01.20, and read backwards is 20.11, Jeremiah 20:11 scripture reference. The remaining numbers from the date 11.01.2020 are 1, and 20, which is the time stamp of the dream 1:20 a.m.
The Warrior Who Atones and Shelters You
February 29, 2020 on leap day the Lord spoke to me and said He is “synching us with the seasons and aligning us with the Son.” Jewish time is lunisolar, and keeps in sync with the cycles of the sun and moon. Since then I have repeatedly seen a vision of the earth in His hands like a Rubik’s cube only circular and solid in color. With one hand on top of the earth and one on the bottom He pushes the two pieces of the earth down and counter clockwise so they will ‘click and lock’. It is an ongoing process, as if each turn or time He does this there is progress, but it has yet to ‘lock in’. In vision the Lord is never hurried, and when He turns counter clockwise it always seems to be in slower motion, you can feel the synching. The Holy Spirit reminded me as I was seeking Him for interpretation for the dream and the vision below to look at the Jewish calendar… and He never ceases to amaze me, the wheel within the wheel!
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year or their “civil year” 5781 begins sundown on September 18, 2020 on the first day of Tishrei and is also known as the “Feast of Trumpets”. In the dream I had a knowing the season was the end of September and heard the sound of the trumpet. “Rosh Hashanah, literally “Head of the Year” in Hebrew, is the beginning of the Jewish new year. It is the first of the High Holidays or “Days of Awe,” ending 10 days later with Yom Kippur. This two-day festival marks the anniversary of human’s creation—and the special relationship between humans and God, the creator. Rosh Hashanah begins with the sounding of the shofar, the ram’s horn, proclaiming God as King of the Universe, just as a trumpet would be sounded at a king’s coronation. In fact, Rosh Hashanah is described in the Torah as Yom Teru’ah, a day of sounding (the Shofar). (Feast of Trumpets) The sound of the shofar is also a call to repentance—to wake up and re-examine our commitment to God and to correct our ways. Thus begins the “Ten Days of Repentance” which ends with Yom Kippur, the “Day of Atonement.” (almanac.com).
Following The Day of Atonement is Sukkot, also called the Festival of Shelters and is a seven day Jewish festival observed in the month of Tishrei. Sukkot dates fall on sundown Friday October 2 through sundown Friday October 9. “On each of the seven days of Sukkot (excluding Shabbat), two aravah branches are bound together with the lulav and hadass. Together with the etrog, these Four Species are then waved in all four directions, plus up and down, to attest to God’s mastery over all of creation, and to symbolically voice a prayer for adequate rainfall over all the Earth’s vegetation in the coming year.” (wikipedia.org). Aravah branches are otherwise know as willow tree branches, now remember the street address Wiltshire is defined as ‘farm where the willow trees grow’!
“During the morning prayer service in the synagogue on Hoshanah Rabbah, after the waving of the Four Species, a separate bundle containing five aravah branches are taken in hand by each worshipper. A series of liturgical verses are read, ending with, “Kol mevasser, mevasser ve-omer” (A voice brings news, brings news and says)—expressing hope for the speedy coming of the Messiah.” (wikipedia.org).
We are on the verge of seeing the holiness, awe and wonder of our King of Splendor like never before. The Church and world will see and experience our Warrior King of Glorious Might in the coming days tangibly and it will be both awe inspiring and frightening. The fear of Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and those who choose to bear His Name will responsibility hearken at the trumpet and heed His call of repentance, “Come up here cries the King, Come up here, sit with Me!”. The Name bearers are directed toward the ‘one way’ and consecrate themselves before they enter the shelter and begin to dwell in the secret place. Abundantly provided for and securely protected the Name bearers prepare and rest in the oil of worship, their days are filled with prayer and decree as they joyfully learn new mysteries. Having grown in the Branch of authority and love they lift up their hands and release Heaven’s covenant of unending love and restoration over all creation for the day of reunion is near. In the Most Holy Place is the sacrificial Lamb, He made atonement for all sins and all the Name bearers weep in adoration, the slain one rose and lives forevermore. Worthy is He, “Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God, The Almighty! The Was, the Is, and the Coming!” (Revelation 4:8).
The Lord is looking for those who carry the fragrance of His oil. It is expensive oil and it will cost you. However when you become a ‘dweller’ and are married to Him, He provides through His presence. This fragrant oil is how He has determined you are a Name bearer. (Matthew 25:1-13). The key of intimacy looks like a covenant ring. “Mary has discovered the one thing most important by choosing to sit at my feet. She is undistracted, and I won’t take this privilege from her.” Luke 10:42. Will you accept the invitation to sit with the King?
When Mary poured out a year’s wages of oil on Jesus’ body it was so extravagant that He promised her whenever the Gospel would be shared this act would be mentioned. “Mary picked up an alabaster jar filled with nearly a liter of extremely rare and costly perfume—the purest extract of nard, and she anointed Jesus’ feet. Then she wiped them dry with her long hair. And the fragrance of the costly oil filled the house.” John 12:3. “When she poured this perfume on My body, she did it to prepare Me for burial. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, wherever this gospel [of salvation] is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told in memory of her [for her act of love and devotion].” Matthew 26:12-13. When the fragrance fills the house, all will know we belong to the King.
I believe the Lord is declaring to us His faithfulness and during these next few months we will experience a great repositioning. We will go from sitting to being sent, from commended to commissioning. For those who have been faithful in the secret place there is an incredible launching in the new year. Symbolically just as in Sukkot there is waving of the two willow tree branches bound with the other three, praying for rainfall for all the earth’s abundance in the coming year – this is the outpouring of God’s presence we have long been waiting and praying for! The final prayer in Sukkot is with five willow branches declaring a voice will bring news of the soon returning King. The five willow branches are always referred to as narrow branches, and I believe the five branches are also symbolic of grace and the five-fold ministry.
The secret place prepares us for the sending just as Mary Magdalene is the first sent one (apostle) after encountering the resurrected Christ, “She has just found him (Jesus), and now she is sent away, but she is sent with a commission. As the ancient church put it, she becomes an apostle to the apostles.” (Biblegateway.com). The five-fold will commission those they have equipped declaring with the Mary’s or married ones together in unity, “make a way, make a way” directing all creation to the ‘only way’, “Look here! He’s coming soon – your Warrior King, Lord of the Manor, the promised One who rides for you and comes in from the East. Most handsome One with fire in His eyes! Prepare! Prepare! Soon we will feast!.”
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, the same grandmother Mary Magdalene as mentioned in the dream above. 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”, “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). 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. Again, I had the above dream “Wait Now, I’m Coming” July 10th which numerically speaks of complete testing. This vision of the coming outpouring was received on July 19th, and between the two encounters we have nine days which numerically speaks of complete birthing.
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 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 awakened 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 (17381 Wiltshire – willow branch: dwell in secret place of the Most High in oneness with the Godhead, He will complete and perfect His way in your life as you come into full agreement with the Triune and cultivate together new beginnings and new plans blessed in the seal of harmonious communion) and petition His heart boldly in the secret place, if we hold fast to the truth that we have 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”. “Naphtali is a doe let loose, [a swift warrior,] Which yields branched antlers (eloquent words).” Genesis 49:21. Like a deer let loose, this will be a beautiful time of rejoicing for The Church across the globe.
John Wimber ‘fathered” 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. The vine abiders, ‘this is that’ new wine! The time stamp on this vision was 8:54 a.m. 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
IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING
“What a God you are! Your path for me has been perfect! All your promises have proven true.
What a secure shelter for all those
who turn to hide themselves in you!
You are the wrap-around God giving grace to me.
Could there be any other god like you?
You are the only God to be worshiped,
for there is not a more secure foundation
to build my life upon than you.
You have wrapped me in power,
and now you’ve shared with me your perfection.
Through you I ascend to the highest peaks of your glory to stand in the heavenly places, strong and secure in you.” Psalms 18: 30-33 TPT
There is beauty unspeakable in your act of surrender. There is refreshing because of your yielding. There is gold to be discovered on the other side of your unknowing. There is favor to be poured in exchange for your sacrifice.
Jesus. He is leading, will you follow?
The Father delights in those who surrender their lives, for they look most like His Son as they offer up their will in exchange for His. In the garden Jesus bled, “Not my will but Yours be done”. A costly dowry later paid, and we now generously reap the unstained blood sown into the earth that untangled humanity’s defeat and former nature. Likewise a garden we now have within, it’s ground holds the Savior’s same life giving blood and when tilled, it is filled with choicest fruits and wine. Death has no sting in this garden. Grave has no power. Sin holds no man captive. Sealed with love and kisses of promise are those who gladly yield their life’s harvest. These are the mature sons and daughters manifesting Heaven’s realm into the earth; they are empowered to revive the earth with hope, water her desolate places, and bring the dead to life.
There is no thing the Lord can not do through a surrendered life; no good thing is withheld for it is how Christ is most glorified in you.
“Your favor will fall like rain upon our surrendered lives, like showers reviving the earth.”
Psalms 72:6 TPT
I decree and declare your eyes will see beyond the veil today! May this day be marked with new clarity; with spiritual eyes fully seeing, your mind fully alert and aware, your heart fully awakened with hope – no more despair. The Lord is calling to you, “Come up here” and breathe where the air is clear!
“This gospel unveils a continual revelation of God’s righteousness—a perfect righteousness given to us when we believe. And it moves us from receiving life through faith, to the power of living by faith. This is what the Scripture means when it says: “We are right with God through life-giving faith!””
Romans 1:17 TPT
Faith is so contrary to the natural that NOT walking in faith will cause you to stumble. Read that again! Not walking in faith will actually cause you to stumble!
“So then, what does all this mean? Here’s the irony: The non-Jewish people, who weren’t even pursuing righteousness, were the ones who seized it—a perfect righteousness that is transferred by faith. Yet Israel, even though pursuing a legal righteousness, did not attain to it. And why was that? Because they did not pursue the path of faith but insisted on pursuing righteousness by works, as if it could be seized another way. They were offended by the means of obtaining it and stumbled over the stumbling stone [Jesus], just as it is written: “Be careful! I am setting in Zion a stone that will cause people to stumble, a rock of offense that will make them fall, but believers in him will not experience shame.””
Romans 9:30-33 TPT
This is why the pure in heart see God, because children are pure (mostly unattached to the patterns of this world in heart and mind) and we must be childlike in this way to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
Faith unlocks what can be seen in the Spirit, our true reality. Ask for eyes to see, discern, and comprehend behind the veil.
“For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable.”
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 AMP
If you are feeling weak and unsure how to strengthen you faith, start with scripture. Even if it’s just one. Faith is more tangible than you think or know. It’s an actual substance. “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17 NKJV
“Faith, then, is birthed in a heart that responds to God’s anointed utterance of the Anointed One.”
Romans 10:17 TPT – this is an actual response of our heart to Scripture.
Bless you today!
Last evening with not many words left to utter I laid on the grass looking up into the sky through the Crape Myrtle tree (pictured). Pondering wild faith and long suffering, have I done all I know to do? Have I yielded? And then after having done all you know to do – contend and stand and believe … oh it made me tired just pressuring myself. Spent, I laid back into the grass and gazed upward. It’s ok to not have the answers and it’s ok to not understand. But it’s not ok to have doubt and unbelief in my heart, and this is the great wrestle as I want no part of the later. Earlier in the morning I was re-reading out of Hebrews 11, 12 to strengthen my soul in my weakness, “faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses”, and then dialoguing with Lord ‘How do I obtain this type of faith written about of hero’s of old?’. The Bible writes that out of reverence Noah built the ark unto the Lord. Just thinking of his example leaves me speechless.
Physical realities were defied early on for me. I visited heaven before my brother and sister passed away, and I also dreamt of heaven often. I spent time with Jesus, and even after the accident at just newly five years old I had my first out of body encounter with Jesus in the sky. I carried a lot of faith, I even believed years after my siblings passings that they could be raised from the dead. I would say (assuredly) until more recently that I carry the gift of faith. I remind the Lord often what I believe He has spoken to me, the type of person that will hold on until the very end!
Understanding warfare and the Spirit realm is not new to me. I am not an expert, but I have operated in a Seer anointing (see, know and feel) since I can remember. For example, I cried through weddings as a young child because I was grieved, I knew it was not right, and the consequence of those unions I would later experience and see was detrimental, so much so that just weeks after one of the marriages I witnessed the man try to kill his wife and I had to get help. Another example is the night of the accident we made a stop at a home and when I walked through the door I felt a thick blanket of evil (I was not even 5 years old), within minutes of leaving the fatal car accident occurred. Years and years of experiencing the Lord and the spirit realm like this, and yet recently I question myself like never before. I question my ability to hear rightly, to discern, to apply, to steward, and my love for God. Many in the Body of Christ, including seasoned leaders and prophets are experiencing this type of mental warfare as well.
The Body has been assaulted, pushed, pruned, and tested like never before. The mental pressure coming against me recently felt like it was going to break me. Just when you think the air is clear, it’s suddenly muddy and confusing again – another reason we are to bear one another’s burdens and cover each other in prayer. Jesus sent His disciples out two by two, as there is power in agreement and that same power we need now more than ever to make it in this last hour. While there is warfare coming from our adversary, most of (if not all) the pruning and testing is from the Lord! You may be thinking it’s cruel, as I for one recently said to the Lord through hot tears, “why must You test me so harshly?”. I mean for real though, are most of our lives on the line? What feels harsh really isn’t in the scheme of things, though no doubt it may be painful. You may have heard me express some of this over the last nearly two years, though I believe some of the reasons we have been in a long season of intense testing are: 1. “If you don’t make it now, you will not make it later” We are building stamina. 2. In general we have been ‘asleep’ for a very long time, our muscles and movements need to be strengthened within the Body as a whole as we regain power and come back into the awareness of our true identity in Christ. Think endurance and strength training. Our minds are being sharpened as we go deeper into the foundation of the Word of God. 3. The mental warfare is so strong because the Lord is trying to sync us with His systems, and rid us of the patterns of the world. This is a transformation of the mind, which is sometimes the most difficult but the most essential. 4. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken as we are inheriting an unshakable Kingdom, therefore we must also be unshakable! 5. The Lord is returning for a pure and spotless Bride who has made herself ready, she is mature. Mature people bear fruit, and good fruit can only be present when the branches have been pruned. Mature sons and daughters yield to pruning and testing because they trust their Maker’s touch, and know it connects them more closely to His heart. 6. The Lord is preparing us for rulership and authority to inherit nations with Him. 7. Purification is for the glory of our King, that we may become the transformed. And if you endure until the end you will receive a victor’s crown!
It was August 27, 2020 I heard in the Spirit the word, “forbearance”. One of the definitions of forbearance is the exercise of patience; long suffering. More than any other Fruit of the Spirit listed in Galatians 5, I believe we need the fruit of patience as we ready ourselves for the return of the Lord. Most people have not endured the wait for this fruit to be developed, however 1 Corinthians 13 writes that love (which also happens to be the first listed fruit of the spirit) suffers long, is patient and kind. Another version writes that love endures with patience and serenity. You see, it’s one thing to be able to carry something for a period of time, but the longer we have been trained to carry the further the distance we can go through the endurance built. From a larger perspective as those called to be carriers of God’s presence we have been training for the fulfillment of the Habakuk 2:14 scripture, “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.” One of the definitions of glory in the Bible is described as weight, the weighty presence of God. Some have misunderstood this season of long suffering as crushing for punishment, but it is crushing for endurance, for oil, for wheat, and new wine. I was reminded of an encounter I had near that time when I heard “forbearance” in 2020, my arms became arms of bronze and my fingers like flames of fire. I was going through such heated testing and training in the summer of 2020 that I had manifestations where my arms from my elbows down were completely red and my face as well, and later started experiencing encounters marked feeling heavy weight over me while sleeping, and in my arms and legs. While the lessons in the testings have shifted, they have not totally dissipated. “Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing.” James 1: 2-4 AMP. When I was in my 20’s I had a dream that I gave birth to a toddler. In the dream I named him, and I know by the meaning of the boy’s name what this represents. It is a promise that has yet to come to pass, one of the main reasons for my long suffering and need of endurance, however if we assume how can a woman birth a toddler lest it kill her? Exactly, the Lord is strengthening us to carry His glory, but also to birth His divine will and plans that are bigger than us into the earth realm. We can agree that it is physically impossible for a woman to birth a toddler, which is why we must come into agreement with the Spirit. What the Lord is doing is supernatural, it is not by force or by strength, not by might or by power, but by His Spirit! (Zechariah 4:6).
I’ve often said to myself over this last year, “if you can get through this, you can get through anything”. Giving up on MY ability, last evening while looking through the Crape Myrtle tree I thought how vibrant the flowers were, yet it didn’t seem very appropriate for the autumn season. I asked my friend what type of tree it was, and then looked up characteristics, “The colorful, long-lasting blossoms of crape myrtle make it a showpiece in classic Southern gardens. But it is not a particularly delicate plant and it can thrive in conditions that would be a challenge for other plants.” While I may argue that I am more inwardly delicate than not (insert smile), I agree this is a prophetic picture of beauty in the long suffering; I see a parallel in long-lasting vibrant blossoms and long suffering. Rest in the yielding. An ability to thrive in challenging conditions. You are being made strong, rooted, and destined to overcome. Take a breath, look up, receive grace and mercy.
“Therefore the Lord waits [expectantly] and longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed (happy, fortunate) are all those who long for and wait for Him [since He will never fail them].”
Isaiah 30:18 AMP
“For this reason the Lord is still waiting to show his favor to you so he can show you his marvelous love. He waits to be gracious to you. He sits on his throne ready to show mercy to you. For Yahweh is the Lord of justice, faithful to keep his promises. Overwhelmed with bliss are all who will entwine their hearts in him, waiting for him to help them.”
Isaiah 30:18 TPT

[This was written and released one year ago today, September 20, 2020 – sometimes messages need to be heard repeatedly, especially prophetic words. They are like hammers chiseling away stone.]
If we fail to call a spade a spade – what then shall we call it? Compromise. Falling short of the promise. Prepare your heart… the divide is coming.
I’ve been writing and sharing on this for awhile but I’m going to herald again as I believe we are nearer still to seeing The Lord move amongst us as Righteous Judge. To Judge means to decide for or against. We need the The Lord to come as righteous Judge and declare, “Yes I am for this, No I am not for this”. We have long misunderstood judgment but it is actually a good thing! It is His goodness that leads us to repent. To repent means to turn and change your thinking and be restored to the pent house – ‘the higher way of thinking’. The fire in His eyes is jealous love for YOU! Prepare your hearts believers- it starts with us!
A month ago I had a week of continuous dreams of Jezebel, the leviathan and the snake present in the church which I shared with you. This morning I had a vision and I saw the skin of the snake divided right down the middle of its back – it did not shed off but came off because of the split as with a sword cut it open and out came a bare skinless snake exposed. The Lord is exposing the snakes; the belief systems, ideologies, and ways we have falsely partnered with lies whether it was knowing or unknowing.
There will be a divide over our beliefs and our thinking in the Church body (the separation of wheat and tares). Ask the Lord to reveal truth to you, there is no side but God. If any of us lacks wisdom He will give it to us liberally!
“For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 AMP.
Be encouraged, it is through righteous judgment and repentance we are actually redeemed and reconnected to the promise. Ironically, the divide will unify.
“If you suffer for being a Christian, don’t consider it a disgrace but a privilege. Glorify God because you carry the Anointed One’s name. For the time is ripe for judgment to begin in God’s own household. And if it starts with us, what will be the fate of those who refuse to obey the gospel of God? And: If the righteous are barely saved, what will become of the wicked and godless? So then, those who suffer for following God’s will should enfold their lives into the Creator, who will never fail them, and continue to always do what is right.”
1 Peter 4:16-19 TPT
Happy Rosh Hashanah! It’s a new year on the Hebrew calendar coupled with a marking day of labor in this ninth month on the Gregorian calendar.
For this new beginning in 5782 we remain in the decade (80’s) of PEY – picture of the mouth. The year change is (2) the Hebrew letter BET – picture of a house, meaning dwell and house. BET as a prefix means “in”, “with”, or “on” and is an inseparable preposition always attached to a word. Strong’s Hebrew 5782 is the verb “ur” meaning to rouse oneself awake.
In this new season there will be a focus from Heaven on The Bride. The Lord will dwell in, with, and on His House (Church). We declare with our mouths the House of God will be fully awakened this new year 5782! The Lord gave me the following scripture to share from the book of Micah which means “Who is like God?”. This will be a year of great wonder as the Lord moves in and on the behalf of His beloved ones with deliverance and redemption.
“Writhe in pain and labor to bring forth, O Daughter of Zion, like a woman in childbirth; for now you shall go forth out of the city and you shall live in the open country. You shall go to Babylon; there you shall be rescued. There the Lord shall redeem you from the hand of your enemies. Now many nations are assembled against you, saying, Let her be profaned and let our eyes gaze upon Zion. But they know not the thoughts of the Lord, neither do they understand His plan, for He shall gather them as the sheaves to the threshing floor. Arise and thresh, O Daughter of Zion! For I will make your horn iron and I will make your hoofs bronze; you shall beat in pieces many peoples, and I will devote their gain to the Lord and their treasure to the Lord of all the earth. [Zech. 12:1-8; 14:14.]” Micah 4:10-13 AMPC
America has sat down at the table where she dines on crumbs because she was told it was a feast. Deceived she believed the stale was fresh and called it good.
It has been declared the war is over however the war is just beginning. The Lord has long been sounding this alarm, but few have chosen to listen!
Last night the Holy Spirit woke me up at 2:32 a.m. and I heard “It’s a sad day for the Church if they don’t wake up”. The time stamp on hearing this is 2:32 a.m. and believe Joel 2:32 is the coinciding scripture.
“And whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered and saved, for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the remnant [of survivors] shall be those whom the Lord calls. [Acts 2:17-21; Rom. 10:13.]” Joel 2:32 AMPC
The Lord has been repeatedly calling the Church to arise and awaken, but many are still yet sleeping.
“For this reason He says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine [as dawn] upon you and give you light.”” Ephesians 5:14 AMP
Prophecy with me to the American and Global Church; Awake from your slumber! Arise from your grave! Awaken and feed on the Bread of His Presence! Let the glory of the risen Lord shine upon you, may His light of Truth enter you and give you vision to see rightly. Rise up in Christ’s strength and power and allow Him to sustain you! He is your peace! He is your victory for He has overcome!
Today was one of those days I shed a lot of tears. And as much as I love writing, I don’t even think it’s in me to poetically state what the Lord just did! Our adjectives do not suffice to describe Him no matter how eloquent the writer in any regard. So simply said, yet no less powerful; He is Love and He is good.
We know He is faithful and true, yet when we are tested and still contending for a promise with no answer or ‘rain cloud’ in sight, when you desperately need the ‘Red Sea to part’, this is where the great war continues within; aligning allegiance of the soul (mind, will, and emotions) unto all that the Spirit has spoken. Spent from my own wrestle, I ended one of my prayers this evening postrate on my bed uttering aloud, “I know You hear me… but Lord could You please just give me a sign You are listening ?!?”. I then heard clearly “go outside and look in the back of your car”.
Too emotionally tired to put “two and two together”, almost forgetting what I just prayed, I simply went out to the car and started looking around in the backseat. I didn’t find any ‘treasures’, so I asked the Lord why He had me come out there. But He knows me, and knows I’ll keep on looking… so I opened the trunk and was going through some of my things when a gold chain that was out of place caught my eye. I pulled it out and to my surprise it was a favorite necklace that has been missing for over a year! It’s actually the second time this necklace has gone missing, and the time prior the Lord gave me a dream about where it was though I had looked in that same place before (it had fallen out of the jewelry bag). Though I am elated to have it again, more joy than the restoration of the necklace is the meaning of what is inscribed on it, ‘LOVE’.
When I am listened to, I feel love. And so the One who knows my love languages best, speaks to me in such a way that my heart can be revived. And I am in love with Him, even when I don’t understand, even when I don’t have the answers. He is good. He is faithful, He is true. Love will always sustain us. Our spirit knows, but we must remind our soul He is the God who hears.
“The Lord your God is among you; He is mighty to save. He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you with His love; He will rejoice over you with singing.”” Zephaniah 3:17
