True Success in God

God is bringing his people into the fullness of HIS Son, not something we can attain by climbing a ladder seeking high and lofty things as the world does.

In HIM the revelation comes to each part as we are no longer seeking the advancement in His Kingdom as the world teaches in pinnacles of success.

We find then our success is in knowing HIM as we abide at His feet.

Success is as we get down to knowing HIM in intimacy, humility, and knowing HIS heart for HIS people and the world.  We must have understanding and knowing the times we are in.

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success,”   Joshua 1:8.

False Anointings

Can you FEEL what seems like an anointing?

Yes, the false has a false anointing appearing real.  There are counterfeit anointings and counterfeit Christians and ministers.

In these experiences we must judge BASED ON GOD’S WORD PERIOD!

Basing your experience on feelings is dangerous no matter how spiritual it seems.

Know those who labor among you!

Our Love Affair We Share?

People are rising and coming towards your light.  Most of these come with ulterior motives.

People are rising and coming towards your light.  Most of these come with ulterior motives.

There are those who want to mirror themselves after you instead of looking into the perfect law of liberty.

Do not allow the focus to be on man and the process because there are no shortcuts to maturity and ministry.

“Pull away, pull away with Me!  Pull away from man and point them to Me,” says the Lord.

“Form boundaries, and let those understand how to respect those boundaries.  Don’t let anyone cross them.

To violate is disrespect; cover your brother’s nakedness so there is no violation of disrespect.  What happens in prayer stays in there.

No one wants to pay the due’s in time and heartache.  Yet they love the chief places among people and puffing up one another.  These are those who drain your reserves.

Let no man suck you dry.  Guard and give no place to selfish ambitions.  Rather reprove them!”

“The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise,”   Psalm 51:17 KJV.

“Jealousy is cruel.  It only seeks its own merits through you!  You are the target and once given a way in, will sabotage all your efforts.  Guard your heart for out of it comes the issues of life.

I AM found in the secret place wondering if you will choose this day to seek My face.

There is a heavy price paid for those who have chosen My Way.  Many are not willing to seek My face and develop a relationship. It is and has never been an easy route.

Beware of those that seek to use you up and cast you aside once their agenda is complete.  Beloved guard your heart, mind and time! Let no man disrespect our love affair we share….”  says the Lord.

“I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine: he feedeth among the lilies.  Thou art beautiful, O my love, as Tirzah, comely as Jerusalem, terrible as an army with banners,”   Song of Solomon chapter 6:3-4 KJV.

Ignorance, Grace and Mercy

God is a righteous God and He won’t hold you accountable to what you don’t know. To know something you have had to be aware of it and receive and accept it.

God is a righteous God and He won’t hold you accountable to what you don’t know.

To know something you have had to be aware of it and receive and accept it.  Thanks to God for grace and mercy.

Paul had carried a heavy list of validation from the Chief Leaders in Jerusalem.  He was out to destroy Christians whom he persecuted and killed because he was defending the Law. WE know HE was absolutely wrong!

When Paul or Saul had an encounter with the grace and mercy of God, he was changed.  By his actions, he was guilty and deserved death.  However, God shown mercy and grace to Paul.  HE was ignorant of the Way, the Truth and the Life!

Paul had an encounter with the Lord on the way to Damascus, and He was confronted and corrected by Jesus himself.  He was blinded for three days and had to be led. His whole life changed in a moment.

There was a man sent to him to touch his eyes after three days and restore them.  His vision returned as God was making a point.  Paul was so transformed he went totally opposite to what he previously believed.  God forgave him before he ever changed. What grace and mercy!

“But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake.  And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.  And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.  And when he had received meat, he was strengthened.  Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus.  And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.  But all that heard him were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?”   Acts 9:15-21 KJV

Paul’s transition and transformation was amazing and changed his direction totally.  When his vision came back, He became a preacher and teacher of righteousness concerning the Way the Truth and the Life.

Paul has his witness of God’s mercy and grace as a testimony of Jesus.  Paul suffered for Christ and at the time had NO idea he would write over 2/3s of the New Testament. God shown Paul HIS Grace and Mercy!

Through Paul’s ignorance of the Way, God pardoned Paul.

We are accountable for what we know, not what we don’t know.  Children are pardoned of many things because they “ARE” children.

It is no different with spiritual children who don’t know any better.  Aren’t you glad the Lord forgives us in the midst of ignorance?   Thank God for HIS mercy and grace!

Course Corruption vs Course Correction

Come away and hide away in My presence and come unto Me.  As you seek Me you shall find Me as you seek Me with your whole heart.


“Come away and hide away in My presence and come unto Me.  As you seek Me you shall find Me as you seek Me with your whole heart.

You shall know the condition of man’s opinions and purposes.  It is never My intent that My voices to be led astray.

As you keep Me first I will manifest and confirm My Word to you first.  I AM a jealous God and watch and care for My anointed very closely.

You have chosen and proven that I can trust you and you don’t need mans approval.  However I shall provide it as a testimony to those who speak and judge My plan and My vessels.

I have sent apostles and prophets.  They are being placed back in My Church for My directions.  These are being sent in and are needed to take course corruption into course correction,”  says the LORD.

“….So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him: and Ahab went to meet Elijah. A nd it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, art thou he that troubleth Israel?  And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.  Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.  So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophet together unto Mount Carmel.  And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions.  If the LORD be God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.  And the people answered him not a word.  Then said Elijah unto the people. I, even i only remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men….”    1 Kings 18-22 KJV.

“…And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword.  Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time.  And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there….”   1 Kings 19:1-3 KJV.

When Jezebel heard what Elijah did she sent her threats to kill Elijah.  What would such a prophet do after such a life changing, victorious experience as he had?

Elijah ran in fear!  The very person who God used to show and bring Israel back to God ran in fear for his life.  HE RAN!

Don’t be surprised when the miracles, signs and wonders are over and the anointing lifts that often causes true prophets to run because of the spirit of Jezebel.

I can sense and feel a unsteady way in which apostles and prophets mingle together instead of working together.  There is a problem because very few know how to function together in ministry, especially the five fold and revival ministries.

I can sense the new that God is restoring back to the church.  There are blind spots to each office that is why we have got to learn how to work and harmonize together.

Things shall be corrected as these shall learn to function together.  Everything is so new and fast that it feels like we are flying by the seat of our pants.  It is end-times beloved and Jesus is coming!

During this time frame and beyond, the apostle’s must learn and work together with the prophet.  There have always been extremes in all moves of God and revival.

Religious spirits and Jezebel spirits seek to make the movement into a religious controlled box of limitation.  It is because they are afraid to allow revival because they cannot control it.

The Apostle and Prophet must be able open to “learn to function together.”  If WE the people of God do not learn to be balanced we will have opened the back door of the church and in walks religion, tradition, legalism, bondage and Jezebel and all her idols.

Apostles will need the truth and the ministry of the prophet to keep the ministry balanced and not off kilter.

Our final authority is the Holy Bible.  Under the anointing we can do many exploits, however when that anointing lifts, we come back like superman Clark Kent.

When you indeed read what the old testament prophets and new testament prophets and apostles did, these had to depend on God as they didn’t have the Bible then, these sought out God by direct revelation.  Beloved prayer is never sacrificed. It is your hot-line to God for revelation.

“I know I can trust you to carry my glory for you have been tested and chosen to do so.

I have and will make you known. I will make room for your gifts. Keep seeking, keep worshipping and let them find you by revelation.

“For those who dare speak or harm those who are my childlike vessels that carry My glory, I shall raise them up in your presence and My glory shall be seen in their faces.

These having childlike humility will be so trusting of My presence.  When these childlike ones see My purpose they shall not be concerned about anything as they simply trust me with such innocence of heart and in their eyes,”  says the LORD.

The Mannequin, Robe & Crown of Thorns

The LORD says: Oh leader, in the past you have known My Word and now you refuse to allow My servants the prophets to come with My messages and bring change.


God is dealing with mixture and confusion.  It is actually no different than mud slingers.

These types of ministries thrive on confusion and mixture, keeping people dependent on them, instead of Christ.

May God help those prophets who are sent in, not run away, but to deal with the problems head on.

One such prophet would remain hidden until he was near enough to give the King the prophecy he carried in secret.  Now how many of those have you seen lately?  Do they still exists?

READ  1 Kings chapter 13.

A lot of people have their thinking wrong.  Had I not chosen God and His plan – knowing what I know now – I would have run from my call.

It has not been easy at all.  I will say this much about my life; to follow Christ has cost me everything and I mean everything I ever loved, had or wanted.

I loved HIM more.  There was a heavy price, and I say this in great humility that HE will continue to strip me until none of Sherry is left as HE remains the refiner’s fire.  You really don’t know a person until you walk in their shoes.  Humble pie has been my entree for many years.

Being in ministry is not some fashion show and who’s got the best car and the things they acquire.  Or, “I was JUST looking at women” while inside you’re lusting!

Where is holiness and obedience to the faith?  Look into history!  Look and read the Bible and see what HE shows you.

If you have a heart to seek the LORD, He will oblige you to find Him.  When you read the Bible you see what types of people are in there and what they went through and how they believed.

Beloved, do not put your faith in preachers, it is dangerous to trust in man.  Ask the Holy Spirit

I see so many making all sorts of plans saying Jesus is the head of this and that, when all I see is a mannequin that has a white robe and crown of thorns with red paint, and it was placed in a window for all those who passed by to see.

You can try to pretend he is being viewed through your life to all who pass by.  You can really deceive yourselves thinking yourself to be right, when many are intentionally wrong and fake.

Some of you have fell into the focus of man instead of Jesus.  Familiarity breeds contempt.  You have wanted to fit so much and open so wide and swallow deep, yet it did not orginalte with the LORD.

It caused you to deny what HE taught you, to compromise and run in to get a flow when It goes against God’s flow for you.

We must STOP measuring ourselves among our peers, or those who are so loved by us.  Put no trust in man, EVER!  No matter how good these are or how perfect they seem.

To idolize them brings no benefit to you and could cause eventual death to that person by your idolatry.  God is a jealous God.  We should always remind them to give all praise to God and tell them to get back to seeking God for themselves.  Point them to Jesus always.

We beloved, must be careful of what you allow in your mind and heart.  When those of us in leadership fail to see what is wrong, there is something VERY wrong.

Time is something we don’t gain back and it is so important to listen to the LORD.  If anything or anyone takes us away from our devotion to God, we have missed the whole deal in ministry.

We must urge the people of God to return to their first love.  Our heart yielding to Him and getting back to the foundations of our faith.

Does it bother you when God reveals what is going on for prayer purposes and then you take that information to a group when you asked it to be private?  What is the motive beloved.  Many judge others when they need help spiritually, physically or emotionally.

So many don’t open up because they cannot trust that group.  Many are like wounded animals being pressed into a corner and lashing out.  Beloved, no no no…. We are to approach them the way Jesus would, with love, grace and mercy.

Judgment must begin in God’s house, and that first means leadership.  When was the last time you repented and sought God with all your heart and on your face until you felt a release?  How long?

When have we got so serious to organize prayer and warfare for winning souls?  God will not plead with you no more.  You know the word!

You fail to allow the church to grow into something unmanageable as far as your experience.  You fear revival because you cannot control it.  Any other person who comes in to minister becomes a threat.

A true prophet sent by God walks in a church and ALL the demons see the prophet and devise a quick scheme to shut the mouth or move of the prophet for that house.  Even lying accusations.

“Oh leader, in the past you have known My Word and now you refuse to allow My servants the prophets to come with My messages and bring change.  

How I have longed for you to yield to Me, to fall in love again with Me but you rejected My messengers and prophets I sent to you!  You rejected them, when you really rejected Me, Says the LORD.”

Understand this, the demons of that spiritual house know the prophet by name.  What is sad, is that God is righteous and never says something He doesn’t mean.

So many houses will be left with vultures of depression.  In their experiences with God, these will only reach the limitation of the boxed in ceiling.

That is as far as many will go.  These will say, “I remember when God moved this way and that way and oh what revival we had!”

Understand this, if you do not heed the warnings, Churches will slip away and a very slippery slope shall the enemy take over while using his deceptive spiritual slimy feelings of Jezebel AND all of her idol’s to mimic the anointing when it will actually be of demonic origin to make people “feel” OK

Leaders should create an atmosphere of peace, assurance and love.  Trust is earned beloved and that takes time, and when trust has been violated it really has to be handled with grace, mercy and love.

Leader’s are you leading by example of Christ in us the hope of glory?  Check your motives.  Are you a caretaker or caregiver?

According to the Cambridge English Dictionary:

  • 1: A caretaker: A person employed to look after a building, house, land etc. at the owner’s expense.
  • 2: A caregiver: A person who takes care of a person who is young, old or sick.

Have you ever been in so-called ministry and the leadership doesn’t know you exist?

When you confessed being a member and everything seems good for a time, then you have trauma or something is wrong and you need your ministry backing you up.  Have you ever wondered, “Why won’t they check on me?  Do they care?  I am talking about those who are in that ministry that committed to it?

There are shepherds, false shepherds, hirelings, wolves in sheep’s clothing and angels of light. It is all out there and we are in a battle and yes, Jesus has already won.

However, we need to reach out to the lost and the backsliders.  There will be many in that day that will say, I thought I was saved, I thought I did the right thing.

The demons even know who you are and that is why it is hard for you to read this.  One demon said this; “Jesus I know,  Paul I know, but who are you?”

“Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the LORD Jesus, saying, we adjure you by the Jesus whom Paul preacheth.  And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priest, which did so.  And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?  And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded,”   Acts 19:13-16 KJV

There is such confusion and mixture even in famous spirit filled types of ministry.  There are main line denominations and famous TV programs and other types of New Age etc. are all out there with their tainted bait to capture the minds of the people.

These so called poised, false holiness Ministers do not measure up to God’s Word.  God’s Word is our final authority.  We line up to God’s Word or we are not of God period.

God is dealing with mixture and confusion.  It is actually no different than mud slingers. These type of ministries thrive on confusion and mixture, it keeps people dependent on them instead of Christ.

Ministers of Christ are servants not celebrities.  People should not be afraid to ask questions when looking for a church or fellowship or questions later too.

The times we are living in are going to get a lot worse and we need to be ready.  The blood bought Church of the Living God shall arise in the midst of deep dark mire as she rises out of her grave, it will helplessly fall off her and she shall arise and shine for her light has come and the glory of the LORD has risen on her.

The LORD is urging me strongly to call his people back to our first love!  No compromise.  No more profiteering prophets or ungodly prosperity teaching about a very old story called the love of money being the root of all evil.

The Holy Spirit is calling us back to the basics of our foundation.

Nobody wants to go through the price of our high calling.  Instead of holiness there is worldliness.  We need to get back to travailing till we get breakthroughs.

Holiness is a word many don’t think it applies anymore.  More and more we are losing the gospel message.  The LORD meant it to be simple that a child could understand.

Our plain message of the cross and each day goes by that we are giving our liberty over to religion that has no foundation in Christ anymore.

Those who love Jesus will be like him.  Those that love him prove so by obedience to His Word. My heart is so grieved…

“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world,”   1 John 2:16 KJV.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows,”   1 Timothy 6:10 KJV

“But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money,”   Acts 8:20 KJV.

“And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness,”   Ephesians 4:24 KJV.

We are in a sad time in history when you cannot see the real church anymore.  There is such mixture and lies being promoted that do not line up with the Holy Scriptures; especially the New Covenant seal of blood between Christ and the true church.  We have left our first love and unless we yield to him in sincerity, we will suffer immensely.

What is happening?  It is about each one of us being tested and singled out before God.

We are head to head advancing to the line of scrimmage, each in their position, both sides head to head.  As the play is called, attacks are colliding against us and many of us that thought we were ready for this, are getting the wind knocked out of us, and sidelined and out of the the game.

This describes a game, but this also is true of life against the darkness of this world.  This is a real battle and the angels and saints are watching over the banisters of heaven to watch what we will do.

This is not playtime.  It is time to prepare yourself to yield for your host to takeover.  Jesus is supposed to be within us as we host him on the throne of our heart.

Do others see him, do you see him or evidence of him in you?  It is time to test ourselves; time to see if we truly have the faith.

Not long ago people would die for their faith, look at history and it teaches us how Christianity really is.  We are spoiled in America, no one wants to know this, so many blindly go on depending on their preaching to save them every Sunday, but come Monday there is no evidence of Christ in our lives?  Is this true?  It is time to check and to continue checking.

Pardon us LORD, especially for rebellion in slinging mud at your true prophets and leaders.  Father WE have sinned and we seek your mercy and forgiveness.  Help us LORD and may we find your favor again…  we want communion.

It Is the Changing of the Guard!

I saw before my eyes a process that is known in computer language as defragmentation. This process took many hours.


“Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.  They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.  The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing,”   Psalm 65:11-13 KJV.

I saw before my eyes a process that is known in computer language as defragmentation.

This process took many hours.  Each program would fill in any gaps that would be open to make a solid line that looked like a brick wall, then the process would start over on the next level.  I noticed the amount of empty spaces and the LORD spoke to my heart about this.

“And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him,”   Daniel 2:21-22 KJV.

Just as the house of Saul has been judged and will continue to be, many gaps have been left open from those that I have removed.  Those who are faithful in little will be faithful with much says your God.

This is a year of transition, a year of placing and moving MY chosen ones into strategic positions by MY orders.  Think not MY beloved that this is in any way a demotion, but on the contrary a promotion.  The fragmentation of MY body shall come together by MY design and by MY orders says your God.

Many of you are already in place, but others come to possess the breech.  These will be tailor made wilderness, cave dweller people.  These will be younger, but with great wisdom for the authority they shall carry.

These shall be unlikely candidates in the eyes of man, but I shall change the events of regions, states and nations by these ones who have been kept hidden for such a time as this.

Many shall be transported to different locations this year in preparation for the changing of the guard.  My chosen ones shall be fully operational as they settle and put down roots and fortify and become strong.

I saw many forts going up as temporary shelters of safety.  Your season is over, says the LORD.  Make preparations!  I saw a wagon train, and banners that said “Jesus’ will or Bust.”  As you move I the LORD shall give you such witness and signs that you will know.

Trust not the voice of man, but trust MY voice and go with your gut instincts, for many well meaning people would say to you that you are in error.  Trust ME with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding and in all your ways acknowledge ME as LORD and I will direct your path and make it straight.

This new beginning will include emotional, Spiritual and physical healing.  This is where things will really begin.  I will bring complete agreement with all those involved in your families and you shall see such interventions that will bring great joy to your souls.  All of these things will happen sooner than you think.

With this transition the LORD is calling you up higher.  Warning!  Do not take this lightly.  Satan will try to bring calamity and destruction before you leave, to discourage you not to go.

Do not heed these tactics, but continue to believe.  The design of these tactics are to get you to think this move is not from ME says your God.

These evil spirits say, Paul I know and Jesus I know, and they know you too and they recognize MY rank on you and are greatly afraid of you.  I AM bringing every crooked place straight and I AM taking care of everything, for it is MY plan says the LORD, and I AM in control.

For those whose object and purpose has been of a pure heart, I AM releasing provision for the vision.  This is a great year of prosperity for MY people who accomplish MY purposes.

The wealth of the wicked is being released to the faithful as they have been faithful in their giving and obedience to MY will.  You are coming into your heritage, and I shall justify and vindicate your life.

No weapon formed against you shall prosper and every tongue that wags, they shall step on their own words, for it is the path they choose.  This is your heritage!  Condemn those negative words.

Claim your heritage and your inheritance says the LORD!  Above all things MY beloved I pray that you may prosper, be in health even as your soul prospers!  Reach down deep inside and take that authority given to you and encourage yourself in the promises.

Take the limit off of your thinking and watch what I do, for this is your season MY faithful ones, to prosper.  I will provide for MY plan!  I ask you to prove ME says the LORD!

Provide a sacrificial offering where I show you.  The time has come.  I shall finance MY vision says the LORD!

I saw a hill from a far distance and all over this hill was sheep and lambs all separated and bleating like they were lost.

Sheep are flocking animals, and these were crying out for a true shepherd to protect them.  These sheep were scattered so far from each other they didn’t know where any of the others were.

The LORD has need of you somewhere else to bind up the sheep and lambs with this move.  The sheep and lambs are hurting and confused.

I shall stretch out MY arm as a torch and the sheep and lambs shall know MY voice.  They wait for your arrival, for the flock shall come together.  I hear the sound of sheep crying out for a true shepherd.  They are sick, weak, tired and lost.

I saw veteran soldiers, ones who have injury and missing limbs, some even with crutches and wheelchairs.  They fought a valiant fight, but were injured.  These people were outcast by the rest of the army because of their disabilities.

Thus says the LORD to you, don’t let the enemy intimidate you from the past mistakes and humiliations.

As far as MY body is concerned, I shall place some of the very rejects into high places of authority in MY army says the LORD, defects and all.

Much transitions, and it is not by your might or power but by MY SPIRIT says the LORD.  If they don’t receive you in one town, you will move on to another, for the whole earth shall be covered with the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea before MY return.

Continue to stir up the gifts, and realize you like a bee are pollinating and bringing much fertile pollen for new growth and change.
