You Are Great With Child!

Church, the things we have waited for are coming to pass. Our transition and pain is God’s way of bringing His destinies in and through us to pass.


We know during labor pains, the pressure is awful and intense.

We think we will die, but surely it will be easier…

Sure!  During my transition labor it was one pain after an other.  No breaks, not until the live birth happened and they had to use forceps to pull him out.

I would encourage you today, beware and know your enemy.  Trust God, because the LORD won’t bring us to birth to let it not happen.

This transitioning is happening and it is constant pain.

You may think to run away, due to pain.  You may yell, hit something, hit someone or rip a surgical gown off the doctor because of pain.  We do things in transition, we normally would not do.

Sometimes our vision, or child, must be pulled out and brought into the new environment.

Church, the things we have waited for are coming to pass.  Our transition and pain is God’s way of bringing His destinies in and through us to pass.

You are great with child!  Understand you are coming full circle and all you were prepared by God to do.  It is NOW happening!

Are We Groupie’s or Disciples?

The Bible is clear not to lay hands suddenly on any man in giving them leadership roles, or else they will fall in the condemnation of satan.


The Bible is clear not to lay hands suddenly on any man in giving them leadership roles, or else they will fall in the condemnation of satan.  

It is the pride of being lifted up in the eyes of man can really do a lot of damage to a lot of people.

It takes discipline and a leader that is a “servant leader” to show them how it is done.  Leadership by example is the way of Jesus.  Leadership should refrain for time to watch and pray to be sure the disciples are ready to hold leadership positions.

To elevate man or woman too quickly, without going to God’s word, proper maturity and knowing their life, could cause a huge shipwreck in their lives and damage a lot of people.

It’s in knowing and allowing them to mature (in a safe environment; to learn how to exercise their gifts without fear of reproach), also in producing godly spiritual fruits and testing their gifts as seasoned leaders get to know them.  As prospective leadership, the leaders learn to recognize those who are truly being groomed by the Holy Ghost.

It is the LORD who promotes.  If man promotes too quickly, the messages may have truth yet error, as there is a mixture of the truth.

Scriptures tell us not to put a novice in a place of authority, else they fall into the condemnation of the devil.  The devil thought he could take God’s place in heaven and be God.

Lucifer started a rebellion in heaven, he felt he should be God.  You know the story, the devil rose up in pride thinking he could be like God; Lucifer and one third of the angels were then thrown down to the earth.

The devil does the same today.  He seeks access through man’s pride, and a position of leadership over man.  The devil and demons are actively looking for any way to take positions in all sorts of leadership positions including the churches today.

Man will always make mistakes and no matter how we avoid to do it, we still hurt people.  It isn’t our desire, but because of the fall we all make mistakes.  We are human.  We know we never want to offend or hurt someone.  However, we all fail in many ways.

As leaders allow the Holy Ghost to lead us, we can avoid a lot of pitfalls and hopefully avoid some of the scenarios.

Here’s some scenarios I have seen:

The anointing is not there, so the leader feels pressured to move forward in the flesh instead of waiting on God.  What happens in this is these ministers are moved by the flesh with a mixture message.  What is worse is that the people pressure you to go beyond His leading.

You can feel what seems like an anointing?  There are counterfeit anointings, we must base all things on God’s word, no matter how spiritual it seems.  Know those who labor among you.

Here is something I have learned over time.  If I get into a pressured situation to move on with the service and His Spirit doesn’t move, I have and I will shut down a meeting and call for repentance, or just close the doors.  Oh I hate to grieve the Holy Spirit.

We worry about other’s feelings and we fail to understand the LORD’s feelings about the matter.  Do you know He grieves over us?

I will pull away when something is off, even it seems like I am the only one feeling it.  I must learn to trust the master above all voices of man.

Man can do mighty feats.  Must we have another tower of babel?  Does God have to come and frustrate our plans and our language that we don’t speak the same thing anymore?

Frustrate my plans LORD Jesus!  Please frustrate my plans!  We must repent of doing our own thing and accomplishing our own plans!  We should remain in repentance until we are in the will of our LORD Jesus Christ!

It is the time to hold silent repentant meetings to purge us of all hindrances.  How long has it been since we have had a watch service?  Could we be silent enough to press through and tap into the LORD’s will?

Are we groupies or disciples?   When we become too busy for intimacy with God, we are too busy!

We will always be tempted to move too fast if we excel to excellence, instead of allowing God to elevate us in His time.  Yes, even workaholics are just as bad and those who are slothful.  There will always be balance in the kingdom.  Even and especially with ministry work.

Ask yourselves this:  For ministry, are you happy if the LORD gives you just ONE person to help, or are you into numbers and crowds?  Please tell me how big the group is?

Jesus went to the One person!  Jesus did the majority of His ministry outside established religion, and He still does today.

Really think about this.  What is your motive in ministry?  You may not realize within yourself that there is some of that “stinkin’ thinkin’.”

I don’t ever want to get so big in man’s eyes and miss out on the intimacy of my LORD and Savior in the secret place.  He is so precious to me and I gotta have HIM being big in me.  The secret of our power with God comes from our alone time with Jesus.

We must know who we are and be satisfied with that!  No matter what man will say, nothing will cause us to stray away from His finished work of grace in our hearts.

This is how it has always been with Jesus and me.  He won’t let me remain in what is popular, or remain where man thinks people are so great.

We can idolize people and God will take them home, because no flesh can glory in His presence.  Keep your eye’s on Jesus.  No matter what, it isn’t the person.  So don’t look at them.  See them through the LORD!

Ministry with people, and ministry work day-in and day-out, can become idolatry.  Not only will it kill your marriage, it will destroy families.  Why?  Because there is no balance.

It is wonderful ministering under the anointing, and before you know it, you forget you are human and you don’t sleep or take care of your body.  You forget you need intimate time with the LORD and your family suffers and it goes right down the line to spiritual burnout!  Ask me how I know…….

Personally, I have asked to have the LORD’s heart; and oh my, HIS heart!  He chooses to allow me to sense and feel him.  Oh and it hurts me when I grieve, as I am grieving in Him.

Or I can be around others and I can sense His heart and I begin to grieve.  The LORD grieves and has all emotions, and He longs for you to know His heart.  God knows where you are and what you want.

Above all things, I’ve got to have him!  If I only minister to just one in life, I will say, Yes.  As long as I know His will, have HIS purpose and remain deeply in love with HIM, I can say YES!

God wants us to remain humble, broken and lowly of heart, even when He elevates us.  Why?  He gets ALL the glory and HE is our exceeding great reward.

All I want is Him!  He wants us to desire all HE is!  He is our exceeding great reward!

To fall in love with Jesus, everything we go through fades away, until all we see is HIM no matter where and what we do, HE is our Everything, our exceeding, great reward!

Elevation ~ the Place of Humility

Often we all get impatient by not waiting for God to prepare us for our day and future.


Often we all get impatient by not waiting for God to prepare us for our day and future.

God will make room for us, and our gifts in His time; He will do the revealing and He will show where HE wants it to happen too!

Be at peace knowing He has your life totally mapped out, for He goes before us and makes the crooked places straight.  You are, and have been, always on His mind!

Your relationship with God is THE most important purpose you have in this life and the life to come.  We never come to a place where we never need the Holy Spirit, each other, and the body.

People think we must be in certain circles or around specific ministry for God to elevate us, but that is not true.  As we lay in our prayer closet and intercede for others, He can elevate us.  God can elevate us in secret and reveal it publicly. God can prepare us to do anything!

John the Baptist was elevated in the desert.  Look at the apostles and what they went through to be elevated in the kingdom.  They suffered for their stance in obedience to Christ and they were elevated because of it.  Their elevation was not comfortable.

“Being elevated” is not some popular catch phrase that people speak about.  To be elevated, is to have the heart of a servant that keeps us humble, broken and lowly of heart.  The last shall be first and the first shall be last.  Elevation is actually a low position in humility.

The qualification for each person is not limited to our circles or specific ministry either.  The Holy Spirit has the ultimate paradigm pattern shift.  He’s got the goods and we got HIM!  So as we abide in Him, we will know the thoughts and intentions of His heart.

We aren’t to cast our pearls before swine.  Don’t take what is precious (in your life) and uncover the message about your life until God brings you to the front-line for HIS purpose.

Your life is hid and valuable to God!  We must learn that about ourselves then we can properly relate that and understand that value in others.  We must know who we are and why we are sent.  We don’t come with pomp and circumstance, but contrary, as a lowly child of the living God.

What is our motives?  Are we doing and following others to be accepted?  Or are we running the race that is set before us?  God knows the truth, but He wants us to see the truth in our own hearts.  It isn’t what pleases man that’s important but the one who pleases the LORD!

Disrespect is rampant in the body.  We need to respect all the body and build each part up.  Each part of the body is of such great importance.

Political games with ploy’s, always try to get others to climb the ladder of success with them.  These are wanting others to climb with them.  These that think once they get into that high arena in the church, In their minds, they have arrived.

These deceived will gain some sort of elevated stance with man.  Their attitude is that “we are so high and mighty and those others are so low”.  In reality, we are ALL so low, but God will have to humble us so we can be proper ministers of the new covenant.

The church is not a political group.  It is to be the LORD’s body in the earth representing Him!

Pride, arrogance, and haughtiness are a stench in the nostrils of God.  God knows when we get too big for our breeches, and have no time for God.  Yes, NO Time for GOD!  Being too busy for God is a very serious place to be.  Why?  He is to be our first love!

Being too busy for our spouse (if we are married) or allowing ministry work to take our time away from God, can become an idol! It does when it keeps us away from our quiet time and intimacy with the LORD and our family.

We can never graduate from our relationship with God, no matter how popular or well known we are.  Pride is a very dangerous attitude and sin.  We can be doing so well that we forget where we came from.

Then we start believing we are above the sin of pride, because we seem to have success in ministry.  People tend to elevate certain ones because of Pride.  These will have to fall because God will not share HIS glory with no man.

Remember the anointing is for the people not for our benefit.  Just because there is an anointing on us for the people doesn’t mean our life is in order!  Behind the scenes, God will use us in spite of us.  We must find out who we are, and be content.

A flattering mouth worketh ruin.  Man can puff us up, but God looks for a man of a contrite, humble and lowly heart.

Rejection is in the life of every prophet.  Once we learn and know who we are in Christ, the words and rejections won’t move us like they use to.  Humility comes before honor.  We are not to seek after honor, we seek God, and He will honor or promote us.  Many are the plans in a man’s mind but it is the LORD’s purpose that will stand.

Jesus wants all of our undivided attention and within that place is HIS purpose and plan.  I refuse to minister and in the past I have shut down service’s if we grieve the Spirit of God.  It’s all about God not us.  Be still and know that I AM God!

It is so so easy to trust in man when we get so many that follow us and our ministry.  We can flow by the anointing or flow from the anointing.  God wants us to minister from the overflow, as we listen for his still small voice as we are still, small and quiet.

The Mission, Massive Launch & Campaign

The LORD spoke to me about the true unity of the faith and the coming together with those who are like us.


The LORD spoke to me about the true unity of the faith and the coming together with those who are like us.

We are always tested to see if we have unity of Spirit.  Not the so called unity of man’s agenda’s, but the unity of placement in each portion of the body, fitting together where each joint supplies.

“From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love,”   Ephesians 4:16 KJV.


I saw a thousand piece puzzle on a table and only the outside frame and some of the other layers were finished.  In this vision I also saw that there are many separate pieces still in the middle.

Just like that puzzle, we must find where we fit together, where a portion of the LORD’s vision is clear to us.  Of course, the LORD already knows what the total picture will look like, but we must allow Him to piece us together in love.

Each piece or person is so important to God.  For in piecing it together, it will eventually bring the fullness of time and the LORD’s vision into all the earth.  Yes, the mighty Church of the LIVING GOD!

Yes, the LORD wants the Church to come together with her total mission with others of like heart, mind and Spirit.  These that come, are assigned to go with you into deep places like a battleship or aircraft carrier and the crew that are sent with orders.

To keep war from coming to our spiritual country and natural country, we must first have set things in order in our personal lives and within the Church.  All truth is parallel; it happens in the spirit before it manifests in the natural.

Our battle is not with flesh but against principalities, powers and ruler of darkness spiritual wickedness in heavenly places.  This is where the epic battles take place and are lost or won.

There is much that goes on behind the scenes that we are not aware of.  However, the angels have been sent to us to aide us and help us in all ways.  As they are sent to the heirs of salvation.

Daniel got serious with God and “chastened” himself before God.  Daniel fasted and prayed for twenty one days before he got his answer from God.  The angel of the LORD spoke about his battle with the prince of Persia.

How many of us are that serious about seeing things change in our lives, churches and nation?  What does it mean to chasten thyself?  Each one of us must answer that question.

“And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands.  And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent.  And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling.  Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.  But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.  Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days,”   Daniel 10:10-14 KJV.


I saw various nuclear ships being christened with new wine bottles and being launched.  Many are still clinging to the old, saying it’s better.

New ships or ministries are to be made of supernatural materials and these are designed to go into deep waters.  The power comes from within the ship.  We want the LORD to be the captain of the ship.

We can hinder the direction of the ship when we use our words and actions that aren’t in line with God’s Will and Words.  We can commit mutiny or rebellion and cause a mess with the message.  God demands integrity, loyalty and obedience to the authority of His Word.


I see the LORD of Hosts himself as Captain of the Ship holding the wheel and those within, have yielded to His discipline and order.  Each has a job to do and none is lacking.  Each person is positionally placed and are mandatory for the engagements ahead;  each one is so important.

The ship doesn’t run out of power for it is nuclear powered.  “It’s not by might nor power but by My Spirit,” says the LORD.

This vessel can go against the winds, currents and even storms with quicker maneuvers than conventional methods.  For it is designed for such a time as this.

The prophets must be thrown into the deep to bring an end to destructive storms and disasters.  Their intercessions will literally stop the force of destruction’s.  These prophets must not allow anything to keep them earthbound and entangle to true flight and depth.

There are forces at work, that are sent to prophets and other warriors to keep them defiled by contact.  Avoid such contacts and neither be partakers of another man’s sins, keep yourselves pure.

There are those who come with old “moldy bread” wanting to make alliances with the true prophets, to bring defilement.  Be sure to only be allied with those I command.

These are the ones who wait on their God shall be renewed like the eagle.  Your youth shall be restored like the eagle.  These shall learn how to mount up into the heavens like the eagle.

These shall have My provision for the hour and won’t be weary and faint in carrying My vision during wartime.  These eagle’s will learn how to monitor the enemy’s activities from far above the storms below.

I AM calling you unto a higher place of praise and worship.  A place where intercessions and interventions shall have tremendous effect on the battle below.

The eagle can’t live on the ground.  In fact, the eagle is in the greatest level of danger on the ground from predators.  The eagle will soon wither if not airborne.  I AM calling forth a airborne fleet to remain airborne.

As you keep Me in the highest place of your hearts, you shall move effortlessly, for it will be My power working mightily in you to will and do My good pleasure.

The effort of the eagle in the mounting process, strengthens the wings.  It mounts up higher and higher until he finds the wind currents.  The eagle soars on the winds, by just stretching out his wings.

Many of you are noticing how alone you are in the mounting process.  Many who were with you, are gone.  Many misunderstand you, and think you are nuts.  They wonder why do don’t do the same things you used to do.

I say, what you got away with last year, you won’t get away with this year.  You will be of most benefit to My body by getting into your place.  Not conforming to the flesh of man.  They want your flesh, I want your total being.

Let them not keep you earthly bound.  Love them, pray for them and come up to your inheritance which is Me, says your God.

The spirit of the accuser would brand you as imposters, but I say the proof is in the fruit.  Know who you are and why you’ve been sent.  You will have the confidence as you daily abide in My presence.  Let no man stand in judgement of you and let not their opinion of you move you.

I AM releasing true Apostolic authority, that shall pierce through the blind spot of ignorance and pride, that is rampant in My body.

Judges once again, shall hold My balance in their hand.  Those scales are My symbol of integrity, loyalty, honesty and righteousness.  My beloved, give no appearance of self righteousness or self exaltation.

I will not allow My people to be proud and look down on others.  I will look for trustworthy people so I can dwell with them.  Only those who live innocent lives will be My servants and I will anoint the lowly and lift up the humble into My face says your God.
