The God Who Hears

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 ‭

The Purity of God’s Promises

“The words and promises of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times over.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭12:6‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Silver is symbolic of redemption and seven symbolic of completion and perfection. The promises of the Lord are completely redemptive! This is the new covenant and all the promises and words of the Lord spoken to you will redeem you from one level of glory to the next. The promises of God will transform your life and perfect that which concerns you. I bless you with greater expectancy and belief in your heart today; all His promises are yes and amen. 🌈🤍🕊

FINDING HOME

For many years the Holy Spirit would speak this verse to me. It happened so often that I began to wonder if the Lord was calling me to be a missionary on an island somewhere. This started in my late teens and lasted over a decade.

“Hear the word of the LORD, you nations; proclaim it in distant coastlands: ‘He who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over his flock like a shepherd.’” Jeremiah 31:10

When I was in Bible college my degree was in Biblical Studies with an emphasis in Counseling, and close second & third in credits were Missions & Pastoral. I had no doubt I was called to full time ministry – yet nothing fit at the time. My parents thought I was crazy declining three pastoral positions directly out of college but I couldn’t say yes yet. Even way back then there was a mold the Lord was not wanting me to fit. And quite honestly my path since would appear to be ‘all over the map’. You’ve heard me say before, I live assignment lead. Jesus simply asked his disciples to follow Him. They didn’t have a laid out trajectory of where His leading would take them – they just obeyed, learned from Him, and became transformed along the way.
To the best I’ve known how I have set my heart to follow the Holy Spirit.

Maybe your map looks similar to mine with the dots spread out far and wide. And though I don’t claim that all my endeavors have been perfect I know the Lord is the great Redeemer. I believe many have longed to be planted but you have also been pinoneering and living assignment lead. I believe this next season many will find ‘home’. You probably have life long friendships and connections but with the continual movement it’s difficult in the solitary day to day. I see a picture of the earth underground and all the places and systems planted have roots that are now reaching out to each other and connecting across the earth. I see the roots reaching and twining together as if they are ‘holding hands’. You will grow deep and experience the community you have longed for.

I was looking at my website and the statistics show me the daily visitors from various countries. I released a prophetic word for July recently and it was published on another platform yesterday. When I started releasing the words publicly the Lord would have me scribe a year and a half ago I had no idea the reach they were going to have. I just obeyed. I literally ‘heard the word of the Lord’ and through modern advancements of broadcasting, email and media it is ‘proclaimed in the nations and distant coastlands’.

Yesterday and this morning I’ve had visitors reading the prophetic word from United States, South Africa, Malaysia, New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom, Canada, Indonesia, Philippines, Figi, Germany, Ireland, Trinidad & Tobago, Singapore, Cameroon, France, Jamaica, Netherlands, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe, Japan, India, Switzerland, Uganda, Mexico, Ghana, and Ecuador.

I am intentionally being specific to say never underestimate “how” the Lord will fulfill His Word to you, just know that He “will”. “Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.”
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭1:12‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Don’t look at the map with your natural eye, simply obey, trust the word of the Lord and believe He is gathering His Body together and their roots are growing deep.

PRAY AGAIN 🕊🔥

When you give yourself over to prayer, supernatural answers manifest. Many have ‘prayed’, but it’s time to pray again!

In reading James today, the Holy Spirit highlighted this scripture passage. ‬“Elijah was a man with human frailties, just like all of us, but he prayed and received supernatural answers. He actually shut the heavens over the land so there would be no rain for three and a half years! Then he prayed again and the skies opened up over the land so that the rain came again and produced the harvest.”
‭‭James (Jacob)‬ ‭5:17-18‬ ‭TPT‬ ‬

The Lord is saying it’s time to pray again, that the heavens would be opened up over our land for the later rain to produce the GREAT HARVEST!

Keep your hopes high and be patient, for the presence of the Lord is drawing closer! (vs 8 TPT)

“So wait patiently, brothers and sisters, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits [expectantly] for the precious harvest from the land, being patient about it, until it receives the early and late rains. You too, be patient; strengthen your hearts [keep them energized and firmly committed to God], because the coming of the Lord is near.”
‭‭James‬ ‭5:7-8‬ ‭AMP‬‬

This is the later, or “late” rain we are to pray in, the outpouring written of in Joel 2 and Acts 2.
As we pray, “So let us know and become personally acquainted with Him; let us press on to know and understand fully the [greatness of the] Lord [to honor, heed, and deeply cherish Him]. His appearing is prepared and is as certain as the dawn, And He will come to us [in salvation] like the [heavy] rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth.” Hosea 6:3

PREPARING FOR BATTLE – INTIMACY OUR GREAT WEAPON

Spiritual Warfare 101 ~ Intimacy

The Church and the Bride has been a message the Lord has been cultivating in my heart since my early twenties, though more recently in the last two years there has been a clear directive from Him to focus my attention here, and as a result He has been speaking to me in greater detail regarding. In February of 2020 I released a word that the Lord was preparing us ‘for the hour of power’. In August of 2020 through a vision of the Bride becoming unattached from Jesus’ heart, the Holy Spirit gave me His revelation regarding the Global Church. “We no longer look like the Church birthed in Acts baptized in fire, we have become a weak church because she has lost her power. She lost her power because she unfastened herself from her first love’s heart. Unfastened from God’s heart she lacks understanding and her beloved identity. She does not understand the weapons of warfare. Intimacy is the gateway that will bring understanding to the meaning and capability of each piece of armor. The power of God is deposited in those who have heart postures rooted in purity. From purity to power – the pure in heart see God (Matthew 5:8). We are empowered through our union with Him (Ephesians 6:10). We cannot be in union with someone we do not fellowship with. Union is a connection formed in the secret place. Power is activated in the knowing: to know Him is to have intimacy and to have intimacy is to know Him – “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” Song of Solomon 6:3. In the knowing you receive His power.”

Many “know” and are familiar with Psalm 91 as a prayer of protection. 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].” You may “know” the scripture, but do you know the Most High? Your stability will come through abiding in the secret place and knowing Him.

In August of 2020 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, and it is a small but most vital key in battle that is often overlooked. “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. After union with the Lord is addressed, then Paul writes regarding the full armor.  “Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.” Ephesians 6:11,12. 

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. (Excerpt from prophetic word, “Wait Now, I’m Coming” https://ablazeglobalproductions.com/2020/09/01/wait-now-im-coming/

On November 3, 2020 at 1:32 a.m. I heard in the Spirit, “The global Church will be reformed through intimacy”.  Reformed defined by Webster’s Dictionary 1828 :  corrected; amended; restored to a good state; as a reformed profligate; the reformed church, formed anew, as a reformed profligate. Profligate defined, an abandoned man; a wretch who has lost all regard to good principles, virtue or decency. I believe the Lord is saying, through intimacy identity is restored and we will be formed anew, reestablished in virtue. We will abandon ‘abandonment’, as we are healed from the orphan spirit and take on our identity as mature sons and daughters, reformed through the rebirth of our salvation. The date I heard “The global Church will be reformed through intimacy,” was 11.3.20.  If we read the numbers Hebraically from right to left we have 2.3.11 and the Lord highlighted 2 Peter 3:11 regarding which reads, “Since all these things are on the verge of being dismantled, don’t you see how vital it is to live a holy life? We must be consumed with godliness”. In context, the Scripture prior is referencing the coming Day of the Lord taking everyone by surprise. The Lord is returning for a pure and spotless Bride, a Bride who has made herself ready, and there is an urgency in the Spirit petitioning to live holy and consecrated lives through the restoration of intimacy. 

Maturity Sustains Intimacy

As I have sat with the Holy Spirit’s words, “intimacy our great weapon”, and yielded to their life in me for months, I believe the Lord gave me a vital piece to releasing this word while attending a glory meeting on Pentecost Sunday, May 23, 2021. While completely engaged in worship I saw a vision of a bee hive flowing over with honey and bees surrounding. I saw this vision more than once, but it only became visible with my neck and head extending far backward with my face parallel to the ceiling – then I could perceive the honey flowing as if over my face. Soon after I saw a vision of a ripe or ‘mature’ yellow banana that was half peeled ready to be eaten. “His left hand cradles my head while his right hand holds me close. I am at rest in this love”. Song of Solomon 2:6

After the service I had an opportunity to share with the minister my two visions and part of the interpretation the Lord had given me.  Yellow banana’s are referred to as mature fruit when they are ripe and ready to eat, and one of the key ways the fruit is effective in the human body is through regulating blood sugar. The Lord was showing me that the hive was a sweet place in the secret place but the message of intimacy must be sustained with mature fruit.  In the same way, the Lord is maturing His Bride and as she remains in Him, the mature fruit she bears will regulate and balance the message of intimacy. 

While I was describing what I saw, I spoke out that the first vision was honeycomb to the minister, although what I saw a hive.  Later I asked the Lord why I did that, knowing the difference between the hive and honeycomb and He said it was because I was perceiving the intimate structure. The honeycomb is found within the hive and serves as its internal structure; it houses the honeybee, the comb forms cells for larvae, and also contains beeswax, pollen, and honey. Beekeepers will remove the entire honeycomb when they harvest honey. Symbolically, I believe intimacy cultivated in the secret place will be a carried message in this divine hour to cross-pollinate, fertilizing fruit and seeds that will develop and mature into an end time breed of Jesus lovers who comb the earth, as intimacy will be a key factor acting as ‘fertilizer’ for the end time harvest. The two visions work in tandem together as one, and is symbolic of the end time Bride becoming the dwellers, or ‘married ones’ as the two become one, thereby demonstrating Oneness with the Bridegroom King. 

“How satisfying to me, my equal, my bride. Your love is my finest wine—intoxicating and thrilling. And your sweet, perfumed praises—so exotic, so pleasing. Your loving words are like the honeycomb to me; your tongue releases milk and honey, for I find the promised land flowing within you. The fragrance of your worshiping love surrounds you with scented robes of white. My darling bride, my private paradise, fastened to my heart. A secret spring that no one else can have are you— my bubbling fountain hidden from public view. What a perfect partner to me now that I have you. Your inward life is now sprouting, bringing forth fruit. What a beautiful paradise unfolds within you. When I’m near you, I smell aromas of the finest spice, for many clusters of my exquisite fruit now grow within your inner garden.” Song of Solomon 4:10-14

HAVE YOU DIED TODAY?

In the world of the Spirit, dreams are fulfilled through dying to them in the natural world and giving the Spirit precedence in your life. When I graduated Bible college many years ago, the Lord told me to “die to your dreams and visions so I can resurrect them”. And there began my journey as a young woman of dying to myself to learn how to allow Christ to live through me, and one of my founding messages I share often.

Death has become a center point of my testimony because here I have found resurrection life. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:11. In my love of word studies, long ago I discovered the word testimony used in this scripture reference in Revelation is the Greek word marturia (evidence given) from the word martus which is where we get the word martyr. So many people want a “testimony”, and while it is good to testify of ones overcoming – the true testament or evidence given of life is of ones dying to self. So if you want a testimony you need to die and ‘let the Overcomer out‘, for it is because of the victory of the cross, we have life.

“Jesus said to all of his followers, “If you truly desire to be my disciple, you must disown your life completely, embrace my ‘cross’ as your own, and surrender to my ways. For if you choose self-sacrifice, giving up your lives for my glory, you will discover true life. But if you choose to keep your lives for yourselves, you will lose what you try to keep.” Luke 9:23-24 TPT

“My old identity has been co-crucified with Christ and no longer lives. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives his life through me— we live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, dispensing his life into mine!” Galatians 2:20 TPT

When you allow the life of Christ to flow through you, Heaven and earth align to see His love and powerful works readily move through you. You will be in sync with the Lord’s plans and purposes and divine alignment will become the standard as you walk in the footsteps of the Resurrected King who has gone before you.

Have you died today?

Building In The New Era

As we are rebuilding in the new era it is important to note that the new blueprints do not change from the church of Acts in that the foundation is laid by the Apostles and Prophets, and most importantly Jesus Himself the Chief Cornerstone.

The reconnected heart to the Bridegroom will be the marking flame that distinguishes the old plans from the new. “Marriage is the beautiful design of the Almighty, a great and sacred mystery—meant to be a vivid example of Christ and his church.” Ephesians 5:32 TPT

“You are rising like the perfectly fitted stones of the temple; and your lives have been built up together upon the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets, and best of all, you are connected to the Head Cornerstone of the building, the Anointed One, Jesus Christ himself! This entire building is under construction and is continually growing under his supervision until it rises up completed as the holy temple of the Lord himself.” Ephesians 2:20-21 TPT

His dwelling place is for the married ones – we are building a permanent home for marriage (and family) through union with Him. “This means that God is transforming each one of you into the Holy of Holies, his dwelling place, through the power of the Holy Spirit living in you!” Ephesians 2:22 TPT
