Prayer: The Price of Humility

I am just letting you know beloved, you are loved, you are kind and you are important to me and God.


Beloved of God,

These are my thoughts and prayers to my friends and ministry list.

I am just letting you know beloved, you are loved, you are kind and you are important to me and God.

I am making sure you understand that I am not pushing you away, nor do I want my words to be received in condescending manner.  I promise you, they are not meant that way!

I cannot reflect properly to God’s people unless I have the mind of Christ.  That takes time to press forward alone to HIM so we can hear him clearly.

It is a serious issue because they “the world” focus on man’s achievements.  We however are to focus on God’s achievements.

As we grow in Him, the more we think we know, the less we know.  A paradox it seems, however not in Gods kingdom; His truth prevails!  Having the mind of Christ comes by having a abiding relationship with Jesus.

I pray that the LORD keeps us all humble, broken and of lowly heart.  I seek to walk in humility. I seek him daily so the people will realize it is all him.

I don’t know precisely how these words help you, but I know that Jesus does.  All I am to do is press into him to become a vessel he can use.

As we learn to abide in him, then he pours out his words and he will encourage our heart beloved!  You are loved dearly!

I don’t seek great pinnacles of success.  You see, the Kingdom of God is opposite of worldly mindsets.  We are NOT to measure ourselves or align ourselves against man’s structures.

We must NOT trust the words of those who glory in pride of the accolades of men.  Religious spirits are at work trying to elevate those who are being groomed as their proselytes.  The blind will lead the blind and both fall in the ditch.

I seek Jesus!  He is why we exist!  To glorify Him in His body!  Seek not after titles.  When God appoints, He anoints!

All of us can tend to get caught up in flattery and pride.  It is so easy to do, especially if we struggle with fear, insecurity, and NEED of approval of man.  It is the LORD’s will, that we know we have his approval.

As we learn to abide with the LORD, in His presence, we will know clearly that we have his approval.

The further we move out of God’s will for us, it will cause us to lose our sharp edge in discernment.  We will try to find others we think are anointed and if we aren’t careful, it may feel real, but it is full deception.

Pride is a very real enemy out there, especially with people who glory in themselves with titles like apostle this and evangelist that….  This is religious Pride!!

Yes, there are true prophets and apostles.  If you get to know a real prophet or minister, you will find a broken, humble and contrite vessel.  These went through the wilderness and caves and such things to break them of trusting flesh and pride.

Pride will bring a man down.  Pride comes before a fall and a haughty spirit before destruction.

One of my continual prayers is that God will not allow me to accept just anything, or allow anything if I am not ready.  To be broken, humble, meek and gentle is an important goal because we see the price.

Beloved of God, there is a high price to pay serving HIS Sheep.  It is not having your name up in lights!

The most important thing to learn and discern is, becoming fruit watchers.  Titles mean nothing compared to the fruit of the LORD’s Spirit.

What I have witnessed personally, they have no substance in their spiritual lives.  Where’s the fruit of God’s Spirit?

These seem to identify with their title, without the hand to the plow and price it takes to learn humility!  They want to bypass the quest without the tests that come to verify his beloved.

The price of humility and maturity all bear the fruits and gifts of the Spirit.  There are those who would even try to ally with true ministers to back up their own deceit.

That is manipulation beloved.  These say, anointing this and anointed that, and plan elaborate events with flyers and so many “side show acts” saying it is God!

Let me warn you; it is not!  These rely on manipulation, control, witchcraft in exercising spirits alright, they are being manipulated by the Jezebel spirit along with the strong man; a religious spirit.

When Jesus walked in his ministry on earth, his anger flared against the religious.  The same is true today!

We all have a responsibility to learn to hear God for ourselves.

Pray for those you know who are depending on people rather than God.

Encourage them to seek God.

The five-fold and any ministry ordained by God has the responsibility to train, equip and release the body of Christ!

Never depend on man, no matter how anointed they are; stay dependent on God.  Stay plugged into your life source, keeping his will first everyday.

HE wants you beloved, he is jealous over you.  Put no man first!  Be not lazy or procrastinate depending on man to say a word to you.

It is a dangerous time we are living in and the most important start to your day, is your time with the LORD!  That is the most valuable time you make each day!  Then our will shall be measured up to our destiny!

Yeah, it won’t make someone necessarily famous or loved by the masses or liked or friended on Facebook.  We each individual, we must learn know His heart.

As the LORD walked the earth, He only had a small amount of those who intimately knew Jesus.  Jesus gave every opportunity for folks to walk away from Him.

It was those who had a pure heart to hear and see Jesus, who would stay with Jesus.

God sent in those whom the religious rejected, those who were in His circle of training.

We cannot make anyone seek God or receive him.  We will go forward with eyes focused on Him and coming close to His heart; those whom He has destined.

Please keep pressing in prayer.  God has a place for all of us.  And I am honored, humbled and so blessed that we have crossed paths.

Be encouraged beloved, I am praying and what’s more, Jesus is interceding for you that your faith will not fail.

Know that I am praying for you, beloved of God!

Do We the Church have Ulterior Motives?

There are those who prefer others however their motives are all wrong. These seek prominence, stepping on heads so to speak to get to the top of the group. These are trying to make up the latter by sheer determination by passing up ranks and authority without going through the time and training God takes us all through.

Do we really show in our lives that we are preferring one another?

There are those who prefer others however their motives are all wrong.  These seek prominence, stepping on heads so to speak to get to the top of the group.  These are trying to make up the latter by sheer determination by passing up ranks and authority without going through the time and training God takes us all through.

Preferring: To value more highly; like being better than, (American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language).

There are those who do not respect you as a beloved woman or man of God.  These have no godly order and their motivation is out of pride and self exaltation.  We all must walk in humility; for pride comes before a fall and a haughty spirit before destruction.  These people are trying to make it up the latter of success by sheer determination by passing up ranks and authority.  There is a godly order and it is NOT a religious spirit.

During all this shaking and sifting God is raising us up; however it is not to promote ourselves.  God is the one who promotes in His timing.  When God elevates, we gain new ground and new responsibilities.  A lot of new oppositions too.

We got it out of order for sure if we look at godly leadership as something attainable in the flesh.  There is in business and politics those who don’t care who they step on to make it to the top.  It is also true in the “church” or religious system.  Not everyone who is with you is for you.  There is always an agenda to those who see the anointed mark of God on you.

There are those who will betray you even as they betrayed Jesus.  The anointing brings out all sorts of serpents of opposition because you carry the mark of God on you and you will not compromise.

There are those who want the preeminence and the power!  In God the higher you go in the LORD the lower you go in attitude, heart, mind as servant of God with humility.  God’s way of advancement is opposite than the worlds ways.

I see those who have no common courtesy with others and they don’t care who they hurt, climbing upward.  When God elevates you up in rank; God makes it known in his time.

You won’t doubt, you will know!  We must really understand that we cannot play with God or play God anymore.  It’s about HIM not us.  We want to bring great glory to God, correct? These are some real questions to ask yourself.

There was a time when God winked at sin, but now He is saying the time is short and we all need to press into what God has for us. Motives of heart and soul are being judged at this time.

Are we who we say we are?  Remember the wise and foolish virgins?  Everyone needs their own lamp and oil, we cannot rely on anyone else anymore to share with you.  Each are accountable for their own lives.

“And the times of this ignorance God winked at: but now commandeth all men every where to repent,”   Acts 17:30 KJV.

Spiritual politics are all raging.  It’s all about who knows who and what power they have etc.  When we lean on the staff of man, it will pierce our hand.  The fear of man brings a snare.  We need to get back on focus of knowing the fear of God!  The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.

God will continue to teach and test us all and He is the one who will manifest His will in our lives.  We do not have anything to prove to others; only develop our relationship with God and wait on Him to bring enlargement into our lives.  It is all for the gospel sake.

When God puts you somewhere, you stick with the program until he says move, and only then.  Don’t MOVE because things get hard.  God is always testing us to see how well we mature in Him!  If you know God put you somewhere don’t leave unless God makes it clearly known to you.  It is not the time to flip flop, and be double minded.

“A double minded man is unstable in all his ways,”   James 1:8 KJV.

You are on a crest of a great wave that can make or break you.  You must choose.  You don’t need to pull on people, friends, No demands on leaders.  God is calling to everyone to repent.  If your leadership are godly leaders, and you have submitted to them, they must listen to God on your behalf.  They are held accountable and responsible for what they do.

When God promotes, everyone knows it.  Remember when Jesus met with John the Baptist?  Immediately John recognized who Jesus was, there was no doubt or unbelief.  John didn’t want to baptize Jesus, however Jesus told him, he had to do it to fulfill the plan of God.  Point I am trying to explain is, we are on Gods timing, not a mans timing, (Matthew 3:11-17).

I will not manipulate, control or pull on leaders.  There are those whose mission is to steal time from them, to prostitute the anointing and disrespect them.  Ultimately making them fall.

God is well able to reveal everything about your future in his time through them or others.  Let God reward you openly instead, be patient.  Do not purposely put any demands or pressure on leadership.  This is a love walk with you and Jesus, amen?

As we mature in the LORD, we must understand these things.  Pray for godly leaders and appreciate their love an concern for you.  If they are truly godly leaders, they must listen to God on your account.  AND, if you say they are your leaders then they are held accountable and responsible for what they do on your behalf.  Learn to appreciate them, learn to truly love them.

We all need to do an inventory of our own heart and motives.  Do we really show that we prefer one another?  Do we look at the church as a means of success by seeking prominence stepping on every head we encounter?

God in his mercy has set up the church on the foundations of the apostles and prophets with Jesus Christ as our chief Cornerstone.  The LORD is sending out his plan of action for the church of the Living GOD.  To live is Christ and to die is gain! Are we really the true church of the living GOD?

“And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone. In whom all the building fitley framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the LORD: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit,”   Ephesians 2:20-22 KJV.

A Warning for the Hoover Dam

Rivers are arteries that bring life to a land and the LORD wants the waters and lands reclaimed for His Glory.

In prayer I saw the Hoover Dam and the LORD prompted me to go back into archives from back in 1998 to release some words that need to be heard NOW and written and prayed over diligently.

This is the second time I have received this warning. This is very serious as the LORD has revealed to me that the Hoover Dam is one of the targets of terrorists that would have catastrophic effects.

I have no access to terrorists, neither do I know any.  I received this directly from the HOLY SPIRIT after fasting and prayer.

I will relate some historical data so you will understand better.  It is my hope that we all pray!  I know that judgment comes on a nation who forgets him.  However, as we pray and obey, God can forgive and he can change things and relent.

Intercessors/ warriors as you read this realize, we have received intelligence from the Holy Spirit.  God will reveal things of the enemy plans in the Kings bed chamber.

We have received a reprieve in our nation, and God has given America another chance.  It is up to the church, especially the intercessors to break through into the heavens and wage war with the demons sent against this nation.  Please heed this warning, pray and intercede and for this nation.  As the church goes, will be how the nation goes!  May we pray urgently!

I wrote this prophecy originally written on July 18, 1998.

“The spirit of avenging had been trying to cloud the revelations, but now I feel this is the time to reveal them.There will be historical data mixed into this article that the LORD prompted me to give.


I saw an angel with a horn in flight and I heard, “Herald.”  I saw a microscope that I believe means, microscopic revealing.  Looking down from up above, I saw the color midnight blue, then I saw a huge dam in between two mountains.  I then heard “Hoover dam.”

Personally I never heard or seen Hoover dam or read about it at that time.  I did some research and found some interesting information on it.  The pictures of it were exactly what I saw in the vision.

At first, I was above looking down at the reservoir of water from above, and the shadows of the mountains made the water look midnight blue.  Further into the vision I was standing at the bottom of river, looking up and it was massive in height and size.

The LORD had me look up some information on the dam.

“The dam is near Boulder city Nevada very close to Las Vegas and Arizona.  The dam was built during the Great Depression in Black Canyon during adverse conditions.  Thousands of men and their families came to Black Canyon to “tame” the Colorado River.  It took almost five years to complete.  The American Society of Civil Engineers call this dam “One of Americas seven modern Civil Engineering Wonders.”Authorized purposes for this dam are,

  1. Flood control,
  2. Improvement of navigation and regulation of the Colorado River,
  3. Storage and delivery of Colorado River waters for reclamation of public lands and other beneficial uses exclusive within the USA,
  4. Hydroelectric power production.

There are 2 spillways on each side of the canyon.  To the north of the dam is Lake Mead, which has enough water to cover Connecticut, ten feet deep.

One of the amazing sights at Hoover dam is the winged figures which stand guard on each side of the flag.  The artist gave them the look of eagles.  The artist called them “The winged figures of the Republic.  The artist was a Norwegian born naturalized American.

The upward thrust of the eagles wings and the powerful arms, are a symbolic gesture of the readiness for defense of our institutions and a reminder that our spiritual eagles are ever ready to be on the wing. The creator of these figures said, “They express the immutable calm of intellectual resolution, and the enormous power of trained physical strength, equally enthroned in placid triumph of scientific accomplishment.””

Hears what the Sovereign LORD says,

“Who can harness the winds and make them obey?  Who can harness the waters and make them obey?  

A dam is a barrier to prevent the flow of water.  I say prepare My people that have been made ready for flood control!  When the enemy comes in like a flood the Spirit of the LORD shall raise up a standard against him.  I have been tempering some of you in the back side of barren lands.  A people who will release the flow when I say.”

Rivers are arteries that bring life to a land and the LORD wants the waters and lands reclaimed for His Glory.

The power that is harnessed by hydroelectric generators brings much light, heat and other energy sources to a land.  The dam harnesses the power of the river to create energy for positive purposes.

Produced power creates much light that covers a greater area.  Above the dam is a great reservoir and below is a river that moves through the land all the way to the Pacific ocean.

Prophesy interpretation:

I believe above the dam speaks of the magnitude of power God wants to release, but at the current time, He can only release a trickle as represented by the river beneath.  The spillways speak of our overflow from our Spiritual Union with Christ, that adds to the river beneath to be carried on to others.

The winged eagle figures speak of the keepers of the gates and the calm resolution of Trust in God and of the power of trained Godly strength as they are humbly submitted in triumph of Gods accomplishments.

The dam was named after Herbert Hoover the 31st president of the United States.  He was considered by many a scapegoat of the Great Depression and all that seemed wrong with America.

The Colorado River is one of the most important water systems in the United States. Draining watersheds from seven western states, it is divided into two major districts, the Upper Basin comprised of Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and New Mexico, and the Lower Basin formed by Nevada, Arizona, and California.  With its headwaters in Colorado and its mouth flowing into the Gulf of California, this river serves as a focal point for both prehistoric and historic events in the west.

I believe there is something very prophetic to future events about this river and dam. Let us continue to watch this river and dam prayerfully.

Prophetic meaning:

I believe lean times are coming..  I’ve seen drought, famine, fires, storms etc.  “We” the true church like the Hoover Dam, will have the ability like Joseph’s storehouse to release provision in every area. The key is the unifying work of the Spirit.

If something ever happened to the Hoover dam, or if the Colorado River was to ever dry up, the ramifications would be catastrophic.  Could it ever happen?

God is one who holds the winds and the waters.  He holds the keys of every gateway.

His promise of provision is for the righteous and those who love His Word.

Even in famine the LORD provided for Elijah at the brook Cherith.  But when the brook dried up, the LORD sent him to a widow woman and God multiplied the offering of food to where the oil never ran out and the jar of meal did not fail, all the time the famine raged.  They ate many days.

I believe we must remember to sow now and to continue to build up the Storehouse in heaven.  For if we haven’t sown in good times, how are we going to sow in bad times.”
