THE PROMISE OF NEARNESS

“Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.” Job 13:15 NKV

There is no getting around facing trials in this life, however there is such a way as to wether or not we will ‘pass our tests’. Remember it is was the Holy Spirit who led Jesus into the desert to be tested. “Afterward, the Holy Spirit led Jesus into the lonely wilderness in order to reveal his strength against the accuser by going through the ordeal of testing.” Matthew 4:1 TPT

It wasn’t until after His ‘ordeal’ of testing that Jesus came out of the desert with the power of the Holy Spirit resting upon Him. The Bible writes that His testing was so intense He needed ministering angels to attend to Him.

I find it interesting after Jesus came from this testing He began His public ministry teaching and when He reached His hometown He fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah; “Then Jesus, armed with the Holy Spirit’s power, returned to Galilee, and his fame spread throughout the region. He taught in the synagogues and they glorified him. When he came to Nazareth, where he had grown up, he went into the synagogue, as he always did on the Sabbath. When Jesus came to the front to read the Scriptures, he was handed the scroll of the prophet Isaiah. He unrolled the scroll and found where it is written, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, and he has anointed me to be hope for the poor, healing for the brokenhearted, and new eyes for the blind, and to preach to prisoners, ‘You are set free!’ I have come to share the message of Jubilee, for the time of God’s great acceptance has begun.” Luke‬ ‭4:18-19‬ ‭TPT‬‬

He was finally able to share His purpose, as if to say “this is what I was born to do”. And I love that healing the broken hearted was on His mind. It makes me wonder what He felt in the desert, not just the loneliness, though perhaps a brokenness we will never understand; living the revelation of a crucified life as a man yet fully God. Jesus subdued His power to honor His Father but also to fulfill the plan for us. To carry a cross with the weight of all humanity while also holding all power required unseen humility. Had he given in to satan’s temptations we would not have eternal life.

There is no man that will not fail us but Him. “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age”. Matthew 28:20. My favorite promise of nearness. He’s in the fire with me.

I understand many in the Body are walking through testing. We may be at different levels and areas of growth, but it is for the maturing of His Bride. If I were honest, I would have thought the ‘ordeal’ of testing would have relented by now. I perceived I was taking final exams a few weeks ago when yet an even greater trial hit. Job-like trials. However, this past Sunday June 26 while in worship at church I saw a vision of a fireman’s hat with the front facing west. It had turned to gold. This was encouraging!

Prophetically, many pioneers traveled west to strike gold. I see there is a GOLD RUSH coming in the body. They are the mature sons and daughters who have pioneered, who have been tried and purified by fire, those being repositioned to rule in this next hour, those who will restore ALL of creation, those who chose death of self for the life of Christ. For the crushed and pressed ones it’s for your oil; keep yielding, keep surrendering, keep obeying. He never leaves. Receive the promise and gift of His nearness. Precious Jesus, you are worth it all.

“Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. [Matt. 8:17.]” Isaiah‬ ‭53:4‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34:18‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Giant Slayers

Just eight days ago I was laying down for bed but praying in the spirit. I had been thinking of “giant slayers” and the very ugly ones I was recently encountering when the Lord changed my mind about it.

All of the sudden the light bulb went off and I said, “I’m a giant too!” – if our fight is in the Spirit then we need to also see in the spirit accordingly. (Ephesians 6).

You may have heard me talk about the “awakenings” I experienced when in my twenties. They were more distinctive encounters I had three times while asleep and all very similar. I had left and was with Bible characters – and when I was “returning” I would be consciously aware that my spirit man was about to come back into my body, it was a giant and I couldn’t figure out how it would fit back in me. It happened very quick, and when it did I became fully awake and shot straight up in bed each of the three times. It was if entering back into the earth realm from visiting Narnia in the effect that it was quite shocking to return… and a little disappointing if I’m truthful. 😉

Now more than ever, we need to see who we really are in the spirit … because that is our reality! It was while praying in the spirit that the Lord gave me the revelation – what does it matter if I’m fighting a giant? I’m a giant too! We may become tired, BUT the Lord is our strength 🙏🏻🔥

Fittingly, I wrote the below two years ago today.

Era of the giant slayers 🏹🕊🔥

The wilderness is always for a purpose!

Some of you are about to graduate and walk in what Jesus has been teaching you. Through your empowered union with Him, no force of darkness can withstand what has been wielded in the secret place.

“Now my beloved ones, I have saved these most important truths for last: Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“BLESSED BE the Lord, my Rock and my keen and firm Strength, Who teaches my hands to war and my fingers to fight– My Steadfast Love and my Fortress, my High Tower and my Deliverer, my Shield and He in Whom I trust and take refuge, Who subdues my people under me.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭144:1-2‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

TURN OVER

This morning the Holy Spirit highlighted to me that today was the first day of summer. June 21 begins summer solstice, the day with the greatest amount of possible daylight and the shortest night.

Immediately I felt in my spirit today was a day of transitioning and turnover. Prophetically, this your shortest night and a day of TURN OVER. The long nights of battle and fatigue are coming to an end. Here begins the transition to rest, recompense, and provision in the long days of light under the warmth of the Son.

I am reminded of a vision I had a few months ago in prayer. I saw a breached baby in the womb, and I kept prophesying for the baby to turn. There is much to say regarding the vision, though for today, I believe the Lord is saying many have been carrying His promise faithfully and are ready to deliver but the circumstances have seemed impossible just as it is with delivering a breached baby.

Today I prophecy your circumstances to TURN! What looks right side up in this world is upside down in the Kingdom of Heaven. I release angels to guard you and what you are carrying. You will deliver safely and the Lord will protect the promise!

I see rest and refreshing as you are still and KNOW that He is God. Your Deliverer is here. The shift comes as you fully shift your eyes upon Him.

“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭46:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.” Exodus‬ ‭14:13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Mindsets – Beyond The Veil

Fear will hold you captive in a cycle of poverty. Poverty does not only apply to finances – it’s a mindset that effects all your relationships and even interactions; money, people, food, self-worth, quality of life, etc. It reaches far beyond just questioning if there is enough and if you are enough; It will cause you to withhold in spirit, soul, and body because poverty is an entity that directly opposes the nature of our abundant God. Poverty is faith and dependence on anything or anyone other than the Godhead and His Kingdom. Essentially, this is why the world leaves you empty.

The Lord has been trying to free His people of bondages, but seeing the cycles of bondage for what they are is imperative. They are grossly attached to the systems of this world. Jesus came to set the captive free, we are no longer slaves, spiritually or to the worlds systems. Don’t let fear blind you, keep you in denial, or sustain you with its crumbs. You are a son and a daughter in the Kingdom of Heaven, no longer orphans. Knowing the Truth is where liberty is found. There is an acceptance of the distorted mindset that is required to move forward, the Lord has removed the veil, will you choose to see? Even in the very act of repentance the definition is to change one’s mindset, to turn and move forward in the other direction. Be restored to the higher way of thinking – Come up here says the Lord!

“And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.”
‭‭John‬ ‭8:32‬ ‭AMPC‬

‬ “Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

“All the ways of a man are clean and innocent in his own eyes [and he may see nothing wrong with his actions], But the Lord weighs and examines the motives and intents [of the heart and knows the truth].”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:2‬ ‭AMP‬‬

The Thinning Veil

It was February 9 of 2020, I was leaving church walking to my car surrounded by canopying tall trees and the beauty of nature. There was an unusual Sunbeam that caught my eye even in the dead of winter. All the months of ‘churning’ in my spirit were culminating in this moment, looking at me announcing what I had perceived to be true, “the veil is thin, Heaven is moving closer to earth”. Having had experience in the supernatural realms since childhood, I knew this was all together different, yet I had no words for it yet. All I knew was what the Lord had been trying to reveal to me through visions and dreams and prepare my heart for – at this point He had shown me there was a deep cleansing and awakening coming to the Church. I took the photo attached at 12:10 pm.
Mark 12:10 Jesus’ words, “Haven’t you read this passage of Scripture: “ ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone;” vs 11 “the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes’ ?””
‭12 is symbolic of Dominion and Government, 10 is symbolic of testing, and 11 symbolic of Heaven and or judgment. The One who rules the earth is coming to judge – He is the chief cornerstone and He is removing all that hinders His love. The number 9 represents birthing. Little did we know at the time….
we were about to enter a complete rebirth.

I believe it is clearer now more than ever that it is no longer a question of “is the supernatural accessible?”, but of which side of the supernatural will you operate. There is a hunger when one wakes from a deep sleep – but what are we feeding on and what are we hungry for? The underworld has been raging waiting to devour and feast upon the soul of man. But there is one Feast I have my eyes fixed upon, The Marriage Supper of The Lamb.

I began publicly releasing the message in the beginning of 2020, as the Lord spoke clearly to me “the enemy isn’t hiding anymore, and neither should you be”. From that time on, I no longer considered myself a ‘undercover’ missionary and at the cost of followers, career and likes I began heralding publicly the alarm for the Church to awake. Two and one half years later the core message hasn’t changed; And until the Lord returns, I will aim to clear a path for Him.

The world has done a phenomenal job at releasing content that conditions the minds and hearts of the human spirit and soul – drawing them in to “the more” that is available in the Spirit world when all along this was the Church’s job.

Rise up Church of Acts, rise up disciples – people will choose one way or another and we will have much to account for before our Lord.

Dying to one’s self is the key to the power of the Resurrected Christ, while exulting one’s self is the key to worldly power. Humility or Pride, choose this day whom you will serve, for you will become like one master or the other.

 “But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.””
‭‭Joshua‬ ‭24:15‬ ‭NIV‬‬

One In Glory

I encourage you to mediate on this: when Christ is seen for who He really is, who you really are will also be revealed.

Through the plate of of redemption you are one with Him in glory.

“Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority! Yes, feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm. Your crucifixion with Christ has severed the tie to this life, and now your true life is hidden away in God in Christ. And as Christ himself is seen for who he really is, who you really are will also be revealed, for you are now one with him in his glory!”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:1-4‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“Therefore if you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, sharing in His resurrection from the dead], keep seeking the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind and keep focused habitually on the things above [the heavenly things], not on things that are on the earth [which have only temporal value]. For you died [to this world], and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:1-4‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Movement May

Movement May ~ I believe many will see great momentum, movement and miracles in May! Recently I heard in the Spirit, “miracles, miracles, miracles”. Three is the number of the Spirit – there is a complete agreement by the triune Godhead for the manifestation of miracles for the glory of His Kingdom.

“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree.

“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel: “They’ll rebuild their ruined cities. They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine. They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables. And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land. They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.”

God, your God, says so.”
Amos 9:13-15 MSG

Catalytic Events

The Lord spoke this word to me a couple of weeks ago – “catalytic”. I was journaling about something when He gave me the word I was trying to describe. I heard it, and wrote it not knowing what I was writing. It’s from the word catalysis: the acceleration of a chemical reaction by a catalyst. Catalyst: 1) a substance that causes or accelerates a chemical reaction without itself being affected 2) something that causes activity between two or more persons or forces without itself being affected 3) a person or thing that precipitates an event or change.

For those of you who are wondering why the atmosphere has been even more “swirly” lately – this is why. You may have been experiencing unusual activity, negative and positive. Heaven is pressing into the earth realm and it is creating a spiritual ‘chemical reaction’.

As a feeler, I’ve also been experiencing His presence and the manifestation of the Kingdom differently and in new tangible ways. What the Lord has promised is coming, and it’s going to be wild! Keep pressing into Him, His presence is coming individually and corporately in ways we are not prepared to describe!

The veil in the spiritual realm has been consistently becoming more thin over the last few years, and the Holy Spirit is about to reveal even more to us! It is imperative to prepare your heart in this time for what is to come. Wait for the Holy Spirit, for He will be the One to reveal.

“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. But God now unveils these profound realities to us by the Spirit. Yes, he has revealed to us his inmost heart and deepest mysteries through the Holy Spirit, who constantly explores all things.” ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2:9-10‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Fulfillment Of Promise 🌈🕊

The Lord is completing the “new thing” He has begun in you!

I took this photo yesterday while I was venturing into nature to pray about some things. Butterflies often represent new beginnings and this painting caught my eye as it reminded me of a very large oversized butterfly I had dreamt about last year. Today in a quick dream I saw 8:4. I knew immediately what it meant. Eight represents the new beginning and four represents the fullness of the this work; four corners of the earth, four elements of earth, four directions – it is a completion for rule.

I felt seeing the 8:4 in my dream was also a scripture and was led with the ‘knowing’ I had of the New Beginning to the book of Genesis “In the beginning”; Genesis 8:4 “And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.” Symboliclly, we see a new beginning for the rule of the earth as this was post flood. Noah and his family landed atop the mountain which signifies rule and authority, though they would have to wait and rest until the waters subsided to leave the ark. It was the 7th month when the ark landed and seven represents completion, the ‘ark rested’ and God also rested on the 7th day of Creation. Stay in His presence, rest and wait for the Holy Spirit!

We are in the same season as the apostles when Jesus, after He resurrected, told them to wait for the Holy Spirit to come before they proceeded with “The Great Commission”. Yet before He commissioned, He declared He had been given all authority and rule. This is also symbolic as the apostles would go forward in this same power and authority. As Jesus said, wait here in Jerusalem, but it won’t be long from now, I too believe He is saying to us, “not long from now”. However, these new wings are not ordinary, they are much larger with greater span and we are also in new territory. Therefore, we need the wind of the Holy Spirit to lead and carry us! He knows The Way – wait for Him!

Timing is different for many of us, especially if you are a prophet or a forerunner. You may already be flying and scoping out the land but the message is the same for all – we must wait upon the Lord for renewed strength. All should be yielding to the process of transformation that changes us from glory to glory.

“While being together and eating with them, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, “Of which,” He said, “you have heard Me speak. For John baptized with water, but you will be baptized and empowered and united with the Holy Spirit, not long from now.”” ‭‭Acts‬ ‭1:4-5‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Clean Your House!

I did not just slay a gargantuan snake in my dream last night, I cut it into pieces and smashed (flattened) it’s head.

This snake was mostly white with some yellow on the belly. There wasn’t a strong sense of fear around it because it was mostly white, posing as having a ‘form of godliness’, so it had become familiar to people, and the yellow represents ‘friendly’. Yet I saw in its belly it just consumed a rather large prey. These are the snakes in the Church and it’s time to flatten their heads! They blend in, deceive, and are familiar and they have convinced you they aren’t dangerous. Religion and seduction!

The Lord showed me in another dream a couple weeks ago judgment coming to three Houses in the Church. And in another dream He showed me He’s dealing with the Mountain of religion. Clean the house before He does, because its time!

“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
‭‭II Timothy‬ ‭3:1-7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
