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.

RESTORATION OF BRIDAL LOVE

This morning while in the middle of an encounter with the Lord, I heard very clearly “I am redeeming every part of your being” and “no longer will you remember the shame of your youth”. I physically felt the Lord’s passionate fire manifesting on my body, with waves of laughter following; and though the encounter intimate, great depths of joy vibrated over my being. Truly the Lord’s words are pure, living and active. I immediately knew this was not only a personal encounter, but symbolically He is removing shame off His Bride in this hour in its deepest layer that she may experience a greater depth of attachment to His heart.

The Spirit of the Lord is saying there is a new level of healing for all in His Body, even ‘the healed’. As I sat with the Spirit on this I saw many who had been healed in the sense of there was no sign of reaction or trauma, you had done the work on your end in the Spirit and in the natural.  But in the Spirit the Lord said, I am redeeming you, every part, the places that have left you with questions, lack of understanding, and wonderment. His blood has bought every place of you, even covering your experiences and that which you have not understood about yourself for the purpose of trusting His touch, that He may remain in you and you in Him; oneness. “Do not fear, for your shame is no more. Do not be embarrassed, for you will not be disgraced. You will forget the inadequacy you felt in your youth and will no longer remember the shame of your widowhood. For your Maker is your husband; his name is Yahweh, Commander of Angel Armies! Your Kinsman-Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel! He has the title Mighty God of All the Earth!” Isaiah 54:4-5 TPT

As the Lord was speaking I could feel warm oil in my right ear.  Just two days prior He was speaking to me about oneness when I felt this same warm oil in my ear.  I was driving on the highway when I heard and felt an acceleration in the Spirit; I could feel a brief moment of gripping, almost a resistance but in the next moment there was a thrusting forward. There has been a ‘shifting back to go forward’ for many and it is for the building of momentum for acceleration. I was experiencing this while looking up at an exit that I was passing, exit 111.  Immediately I knew this meant the Spirit was accelerating oneness with Him. I felt the Lord speaking so specifically that I voice texted to document, and the exact time was 12:58 p.m.  When I asked the Lord about the time stamp, He showed me that it was two minutes before one; in other words, ‘the two becoming one”.   “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

On my return home on the same highway, at 3:16 p.m. I felt the hot oil in my right ear, I looked over and saw exit 99.  The Holy Spirit reminded me of the parable of the lost sheep, leaving the 99 to go after the 1 found in Matthew 18 and Luke 15. He then highlighted the time stamp again with John 3:16, “For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trust in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.” AMP.  I saw a new side of the parable; the begotten One going after the one to be One. The Holy Spirit then highlighted that Shepherds will anoint their sheep with oil, this oil acts as a protective barrier and will even prevent death.

I believe the Lord is saying that He is redeeming all of His Bride; He is anointing her ears for deeper trust as a protective barrier, while the oil also guards what He is depositing in the secret place, and in the secret place He is anointing her with His oil of gladness (Isaiah 61:1-3). Psalm 133 likens oil with unity, Paul writes in Ephesians 6:10 that we are to be empowered through our union with Christ.  Our intimate union with Christ is not only experienced at the Marriage supper of the Lamb, though can be accessed now as the Lord is inviting us into His inner chamber where the Lamb is pouring out His oil to prepare, restore, and redeem His Bride. 

This is the beginning of the restoration of Bridal Love.  A couple of months ago I had a dream where I was a married to a minister.  I knew this was symbolic as the Lord has often used me symbolically as a picture of “His Bride” and I didn’t recognize the woman as looking like myself in the dream.  We were standing on a slightly raised platform with our congregation, worshipers all surrounding us in a crowd.  I leaned in to kiss him, and it was if I had forgotten how sweet it was so I kissed him again, and then a third time.  Typically this is not the kiss you see in church ‘on display’, however it was not inappropriate. Again the number three representing the Spirit, this was a dream representing the reawakening of bridal love, so that in unity, “The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Revelation 22:17

The Lord is saying, this is the return of “PDA”, The Bride will affectionately show her love for her Husband in renewed covenant. The Church is becoming aware of the missing affection in the relationship, and pure public displays are going to be demonstrated by the leading of the Spirit. She will fall in love with her Husband again, and will recognize and call Him her Beloved. “Let him smother me with kisses – His Spirit-kiss divine. So kind are your caresses, I drink them in like the sweetest 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.” Song of Solomon 1:2-4 TPT

Let Me Burn

If I could explain the benefits of a “yes” to God, I’d die a hundred more times so you would know He is good. Somewhere in the flames of sacrifice you transition from yielding your flesh unto burning to beholding His glorious frame.

The heat of His presence tangible, now nearer still He speaks from the eternal flame. I’d die all over again and as many times required because it is here that life really begins. There is no other that can captivate my being, His longing for me draws me closer and in my longing for Him He returns.

My soul and my spirit pray, let me always stay here fastened to Your heart.

Stand Firm

I was talking to the Lord yesterday and said, “I don’t know what to think”. All He said in return is “stand firm”.

Though we are all human I have been very disappointed in some of the spiritual leaders reactions to current world events over the last week. And particularly for America, it has made me sad to see so much division and witness prominent leaders quickly changing their stance causing doubt and insecurity to their flock.

One of the visions the Lord gave me for the new year was pertaining to unity within the body – a continued message from 2020 that I shared numerous times. Often times there must be the dividing lines to build upon the new foundation. This truly is a separation season of the wheat and the tares, for a new beginning.

Stand firm my friends. Trust the Lord. His Kingdom is built on principles of faith and trust of His word. “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Lovingkindness and truth go before You.” Psalm 89:14. Fear and doubt are the opposites of His covenant, they are the substance that pull you from Heavens Highest realm where you are rightfully seated to ‘rule & reign’ – and when given into, these reigning earthly realm principalities dismantle your authority and cause you to cower backwards.
Faith is the breath of God. Fear is the breath of Satan. If you feel like the wind has been knocked out of you, ponder this. We need air to breathe so align yourself with the voice of your Creator that you may have abundant life! When you submit to Him, like Adam He will breathe life, truth, peace, strength, healing, wisdom, and deliverance into your being. You become like Him through breathing His air, and your being will become transformed.
If Satan is the power of the air (Ephesians 6) ; you need the higher air. You need the breath of Heaven!

Read Isaiah 7 if you are able. “If you will not believe and trust and rely [on God and on the words of God’s prophet instead of Assyria], surely you will not be established nor will you remain.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭7:9‬ ‭AMPC‬‬
“If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.” Isaiah 7:9 NIV

Growing In Union Covenant

Growing strong in the next season will require others. The power of agreement will be fundamental for the development of the body. Jesus sent forth His disciples into the activation of calling and destiny in a minimum of two persons. As we are empowered through our union with Christ in the Spirit, so it will be necessary to be empowered through union covenant relationships on earth.

“And you will chase your enemies, and they will fall before you by the sword. Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will put ten thousand to flight; your enemies will fall before you by the sword. For I will turn toward you [with favor and regard] and make you fruitful and multiply you, and I will establish and confirm My covenant with you.” Leviticus‬ ‭26:7-9‬ ‭AMP‬‬

As I was pondering this, the Lord reminded me of the strength of well rooted trees and an article I read a couple of years ago. This next season we will move and grow from singular to plural to fulfill His plans and purpose.

“All the trees here, and in every forest that is not too damaged, are connected to each other through underground fungal networks. Trees share water and nutrients through the networks, and also use them to communicate. They send distress signals about drought and disease, for example, or insect attacks, and other trees alter their behavior when they receive these messages.”
