A Joyful Offering

A first fruits harvest from a first fruits offering is resurrection life. To the degree you are willing to die is the degree of resurrection power that will flow through you. A first fruits offering in scripture symbolizes consecration of all the rest of the harvest to follow, the word in Greek is aparkhay, the same origin of aparchomai “to make a beginning”.

Jesus gave Himself as a firstfruit offering for all of humanity, and all of humanity has opportunity to experience this resurrection life and power. Jesus consecrated us (the harvest that follows Him) from our sins through His shed blood, and made a new beginning for humanity!

Your experience is your choice, it is a matter of personal will. You can have the fullness of Christ without measure to the measure you allow His life to work through you, bearing your cross like Him. Follow Him. If you want the power of God you will yield to death; this is where you are unified with Him, empowered, and experience His resurrection life.

This death is not morbid, Jesus said it was the joy set before Him that He endured the cross. The joy of our faces, the joy of knowing there would be a way from eternal separation from His beloved. A joy that enabled Him to complete this plan of redemption, making a new destiny for mankind He would purchase back His Bride with His innocent blood. Though self denial and loss can be painful, nothing compares to the price that was already paid. It is the joy set before us to also endure and take up our cross to be in union with Him. For in His presence is the fullness of joy … pleasures forevermore.

Everlasting Faith Is To Remain In Christ

an exhortation on faith in action

Many people claim to have faith, and while the idea of it is attractive and seems positive, the source of one’s faith matters. Faith outside of Heaven lives in the realm of men and does not last into eternity, it aims high though it still holds a limited grasp of an abundant life, and its wisdom never fully reaches the pure Light. There may be mysteries to be uncovered in Heaven’s faith, but there is no obscurity or confusion. Heaven’s faith is founded on Truth, and blesses all who take hold with guaranteed assurance. “Some trust in and boast of chariots and some of horses, but we will trust in and boast of the name of the Lord our God.” Psalm 20:7 AMPC; “Some find their strength in their weapons and wisdom, but my miracle-deliverance can never be won by men. Our boast is in Yahweh our God, who makes us strong and gives us victory!” Psalms 20:7 TPT. The victorious life is accessed when one embraces the wisdom of God, through faith. “Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].” Hebrews 11:1 AMP

At the ground level of Christianity is the foundation of faith; the belief that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died for the sins of humanity once and for all so that we could have unbroken fellowship with Him. This firm foundation is the gateway to the path of complete redemption held in our Savior’s heart. Furthermore, Scripture writes that “But it is from Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God [revealing His plan of salvation], and righteousness [making us acceptable to God], and sanctification [making us holy and setting us apart for God], and redemption [providing our ransom from the penalty for sin], so then, as it is written [in Scripture], “He who boasts and glories, let him boast and glory in the Lord.”” 1 Corinthians 1:30-31 AMP. Our abilities, thoughts, and works can never create a supernatural reality that can withstand the judgement of God. This is why those who perform signs, wonders, and miracles in the Name of Jesus are still subject to be separated from Him: “On the day of judgment many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, don’t you remember us? Didn’t we prophesy in your name? Didn’t we cast out demons and do many miracles in your name?’ But I will have to say to them, ‘Go away from me, you lawless rebels! I’ve never been joined to you!’” Matthew 7:22-23 TPT.

Only heaven’s faith incubates eternal fruit. Heaven’s faith is a substance, the very living material that allows mortal man to be made alive in Christ. Heaven’s faith is rooted in Life itself, therefore all that emanates from its source reproduces life as well. Mortal or even spiritual faith cannot produce fruit that remains, because apart from Christ man can do nothing (John 15:5). The secret to possessing an overcoming supernatural faith, is to remain in Christ – not the belief in ourselves, our higher conscious, good works, or supreme beings.  There is One, and belief in Him alone will not suffice for even the demons believe, the requirement is remaining in Him. 

In recent moments when I have pressed into the Lord over the subject of my faith being strengthened, the conclusion is that mature sons and daughters stay through the wrestle, the long suffering, and the unknown. While faith does come by hearing the Word of God, it is not as much that their faith is not strong, as is the temptation to move or even gaze upon that which is outside of Him because this is where the weakening of faith occurs.  “If you have [living] faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and [if it is God’s will] it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 AMP. It is not the “size” of our faith that is measured, rather that faith itself is living and active. What is living faith? The two examples that come to mind are 1) an unborn child inside of the womb; fully dependent on the life, breathe, and nutrients of its mother representing life through the umbilical cord, symbolically we are “born again” and are Christ’s offspring remaining connected to Him in the same way  2) the parable of abiding in the vine, representing life through the blood of Christ which is the epitome of our spiritual life-source in our veins.

Mature sons and daughters bring the Kingdom of Heaven to the earth realm; the supernatural and extraordinary are manifested through Christ Jesus in them, this is why we remain in Him, to fully manifest and display HIS good works through our covenant of love. “In Him we live and move and have our being; as even some of your [own] poets have said, For we are also His offspring.” Acts 17:28. Faith is an action verb, in addition to many familiar definitions, the action of faith also denotes ones behavior or conduct. Our behavior reflects our belief systems and tests our intimate knowledge of Him by the fruit we bear. “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.” Hebrews 10:38. Why is there no pleasure for those who draw back? Because these are ones who unfastened themselves from God’s heart, the ones who became unjoined from Him. The ones who found fascination in other pleasures, the ones who allowed the little foxes to spoil the vine and ruin the beautiful fruit. The ones who could not hold their gaze upon Him when they had no understanding and failed to trust Him with their heart. The ones who lost their first love.

There is no life outside of Christ, as soon as we begin to look away from Him, the life flow becomes hindered and our faith suffers. The beautiful mystery of faith is that abiding in Christ is an actual place, it is not abstract. The completed work of Christ enabled us to make a permanent residence for Him, a dwelling place where we never have to be separated from His love. After the resurrection of Christ, all of humanity was given and continues to be given opportunity for the indwelling of His Spirit, where we create a home for His presence. He is the hope, friendship, and love we long for, our great confidence, and through this everlasting faith we are justified and remain in Him. “So you must remain in life-union with me, for I remain in life-union with you. For as a branch severed from the vine will not bear fruit, so your life will be fruitless unless you live your life intimately joined to mine. “I am the sprouting vine and you’re my branches. As you live in union with me as your source, fruitfulness will stream from within you—but when you live separated from me you are powerless. If a person is separated from me, he is discarded; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire to be burned. But if you live in life-union with me and if my words live powerfully within you—then you can ask whatever you desire and it will be done. When your lives bear abundant fruit, you demonstrate that you are my mature disciples who glorify my Father! “I love each of you with the same love that the Father loves me. You must continually let my love nourish your hearts.” John 15:4-9 TPT.

As the days grow darker, and testing increases, I pray your faith is strengthened through your union with Christ. Remain in Him, and allow His love to nourish your hearts. If any man be in Christ he is a new creature! Our relationship with Him is transformative from glory to glory, allow Him to love you into that next layer of life. As His love is shed abroad in your heart I pray that you would receive revelation of “works of faith” or “faith in action” is actually abiding IN HIM; and may we all become more awakened than days prior, reflecting His pure and perfect Light. “Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].” 2 Corinthians 5:17 AMP

“For everyone born of God is victorious and overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has conquered and overcome the world—our [continuing, persistent] faith [in Jesus the Son of God]. Who is the one who is victorious and overcomes the world? It is the one who believes and recognizes the fact that Jesus is the Son of God.” 1 John 5:4-5 AMP.

I bless you in your victorious journey of faith!

In Him We Live

IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING
(Acts 17:28)

“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

RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT AND REPENTANCE RECONNECTS US BACK TO THE PROMISE

[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

5782

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

Those Whom The Lord Calls ⏰

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!

Longing For The Beloved

“If only I could show everyone this passionate desire I have for you. If only I could express it fully, no matter who was watching me, without shame or embarrassment.”
‭‭Song of Songs‬ ‭8:1‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Recently the Lord was showing me the connection of the lovesick Bride in Song of Solomon with the full expression of devotion seen in Mary of Bethany. Spikenard is the perfume that Mary poured over Jesus’ head and used to anoint His feet. Mary’s worship was a sign and act of extreme devotion and very costly offering, likely equating to a years wages (Mark 14, John 12). Spikenard is also mentioned in Song of Solomon, “As the king surrounded me at his table, the sweet fragrance of spikenard awakened the night.” Song of Songs‬ ‭1:12‬ ‭TPT‬ & “While the king sits at his table [she said], my spikenard [my absent lover] sends forth [his] fragrance [over me].” Song of Solomon‬ ‭1:12‬ ‭AMPC‬‬. It is also later mentioned as an exquisite aroma within the Bride’s inner garden (her inner chamber / heart) that she prepared and stored for her Bridegroom King (4:13,14)

The Hebrew root word for Spikenard means to “shine” or “light up” as in a reflecting light. The light of the moon is reflected light from the sun, and is most brightly seen in the darkest hours of night. I find the parallels intriguing in that Mary anointed Jesus (the Bridegroom) just prior to the most difficult and darkest hours He and His followers would face, and He was the Light that overcame darkness. Perhaps prophetically the extravagant offering of spikenard “reflected light” was an aroma Jesus remembered while praying in the garden – for His Bride He drank that cup, knowing without enduring the cross He would never be in union with her and she could not fully reflect Him.

Jesus left this earth declaring He had to prepare a place for us (His Bride) just as it was in Jewish culture. Secondly in Jewish culture the time between the betrothal and the wedding was usually around one year, and significant to note it was one years wages Mary gave to Jesus in fragrant perfume – the perfume that prepared Him for the burial that would bring us life. It was customary the bridegroom could appear at anytime, day or night to his betrothed announcing the long awaited wedding ceremony had finally come. The timing was was a decision made by the father of the bridegroom, so the bride needed to be prepared. Once announced the bride and her bridesmaids would follow the bridegroom back to his fathers house. This coincides with the Ten Virgins parable in Matthew 25, and in the parable it was at midnight also known as the darkest hour when the Bridegroom’s voice was heard.

Extreme devotion will be a necessity in the Church as we prepare for the Lord’s return, however the fragrance of devotion so pleasing it will draw the heart of the Lord nearer still. This will be a time we must “count the cost”, though like Mary, Jesus said the memory of what she had offered to Him would be told throughout the world whenever the Gospel was proclaimed. As devoted lovers become more impassioned, this will cause another increase in the separation of wheat and tares in the Body, as this extreme devotion will agitate the hearts of the impure just as Judas was indignant over Mary’s extravagant offering. Despite accusers and many who will not understand this costly pure fiery love, the Bride will reflect His Light and increase in our longing and desire for Oneness with Him until His Glory covers the earth. Lovesick from the Bridegroom’s fragrant presence, we will reflect Him and become like Him with His fragrance and fruit stored within as a sacred gift.

This is a new season of “Longing”; we will grow here and plant by the river banks that run deep and wide, we are forging new rivers of worship and cleansing others that lead to the mountain of our God. There will be many assignments and seasons of change, but The New Longing will be one that will remain, a season that will be sustained by devoted love where we will mature and purify the Bride together until that long awaited day when the Father leans in with a smile that spans the heavens and whispers “Son, she has made herself ready”.

THE VALUE OF OIL

The Lord impressed upon my heart to share the tremendous value of oil and trial.  He said many in the global Church may not see or understand the value of it yet, though soon will be very thankful for this opportunity and season of reconsecration. In the Spirit I felt a weight on the word value. This season has been misunderstood by many as one of unnecessary trial, though it has actually been one of great value and Mercy.  As I was writing this out with the Lord, I heard in the Spirit the word, “apprehend”.  Apprehend is defined in the Oxford dictionary as 1) arrest (someone) for a crime 2) understand and perceive, anticipate. The origin is late Middle English, originally in the sense ‘grasp hold of (physically or mentally)’.  I believe the Lord is saying He desires to arrest incorrect thinking with an invitation to grasp hold of His mind on the matter.

The Church has been in a prefix storyline of the Matthew 25 parable, The Ten Virgins. Those who were unwise are being made wise. Eyes that could not once see, have vision. What was once dark is now illuminated. Many have not understood the trial and pressing, though the hand of the Lord has allowed it as He knew the Church positionally did not have enough oil. In His mercy He has allowed the pressing because the olive fruit must be crushed and pressed to obtain the oil. We need the extra oil for the journey as it is in the darkest time of night, at midnight, before the Bridegroom appears and this extra oil is essential to see as He leads us to the door of the wedding feast. In this parable the wise virgins trimmed their wicks and had extra oil (in flasks or vessels). Symbolically the Lord has been cutting away from our wicks, removing that which would hinder us from shining brightly that we may know, hear and see Him rightly in this dark hour.  Through the crushing we have paid the price and bought oil, and will be prepared to make the journey in the dark night. 

There is a global call in the Spirit to awake and meet the Bridegroom, “Now while the bridegroom was delayed, they all began to nod off, and they fell asleep. But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Look! The bridegroom [is coming]! Go out to meet him.’” Matthew 25:5-6 AMP. The Greek noun for meet here means to ‘have a meeting with’ or ‘encounter’. The golden lampstand was in the Tent of Meeting, in the Holy Place – the entrance way to the Holy of Holies or place of encounter and gave light to the entire tent. We are New Testament priests through Christ the Messiah our High Priest and in the order Melchizedek. In the Old Testament it was Aaron who was a representation of the consecrated Levitical priestly line who was instructed to keep the lamps burning CONTINUALLY, and so shall it be unto us as we now have the honor to carry out this priestly order. The Lord once again is removing veils that separate us from encountering Him in the Most Holy Place. “Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Command the children of Israel to bring to you clear oil from beaten olives for the light [of the golden lampstand], to make a lamp burn continually. Outside the veil of the Testimony [between the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place] in the Tent of Meeting, Aaron shall always keep the lamps burning before the Lord from evening until morning; it shall be a permanent statute throughout your generations. He shall keep the lamps burning on the pure gold lampstand before the Lord continually.” Leviticus 24:1-4 AMP. 

The vessels containing extra oil in Matthew 25 are described in the Greek as having a bend, meaning a container that can be filled. Where is the infilling of oil? The Holy Spirit supernaturally fills and refills these vessels with oil. Money cannot purchase this oil, for it is bought with the reward of pressing and suffering, the reward of abiding and intimacy with the Son, the reward of dying to self;  all rewards of spiritual wealth are contained here for the price for buying oil is costly as it is the first fruit offerings from your very life. 

In His goodness, the Lord has ‘bought us’ time with Him in this last season; the olive is a fruit and to bear fruit we must abide and remain in Him. ““ I am the true Vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that continues to bear fruit, He [repeatedly] prunes, so that it will bear more fruit [even richer and finer fruit]. You are already clean because of the word which I have given you [the teachings which I have discussed with you]. Remain in Me, and I [will remain] in you. Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself without remaining in the vine, neither can you [bear fruit, producing evidence of your faith] unless you remain in Me. I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.” John 15:1-5 AMP.  Abiding and remaining in Him is a personal choice. Consecration is a choice. Bearing fruit is for all, though some have good fruit while others have bad fruit. 

Your daily decisions have never mattered more, as the weight of eternity hinges on them. It is a narrow road to the door, and few find it…

There is still time. Do not despise this pruning but yield to the Spirit as the Lord desires to prepare you for your most glorious and shining hour!

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
