Come Alive! Breathe and Live!

I saw a woman laying down and all sorts of tiny demons were trying to keep her down.

We must understand that the battles we fight are for a greater Truth.

Satan wants prayer warriors paralyzed through fear and confusion.  He wants us to come down from our post to fight a battle in the natural that we cannot win.

We must first win the battle at our post in The Spirit to gain the ground we need.  What ground we gain must be maintained.

We each have been chosen to stand at our selected post.  No matter what it looks like or sounds like, no matter how real things are, no matter the threats against us, we must stay at our post and stay on target by keeping our eyes fixed upon our commander and chief, LORD Jesus!

Nothing surprises The LORD but as we stand at our post we can stand and see it from afar.  However, it is when we look at the threats, weapons, the intimidation, the hatred, the prejudice, we are to look to heaven and cry out!

We are not many, but we fight for The Body!  We are not one ethnic group, but many who make up The Body of Christ.  We are one in Christ!

I saw a woman laying down and all sorts of tiny demons were trying to keep her down.

Although she never saw herself as a giant before, when tribulation and riot came, she laid down and fell asleep.

Regardless, though the demons scurried, attempting to use mere human weapons and ropes, they sought to tie her down.

Once she was secured down, the demons boasted in their achievement’s thinking that they finally stopped and tied the woman down!

The woman in her season did lie down, by giving place to the many voices of the little demons.  The only power the demons had — was what she gave them!

Suddenly, I began to see a rushing and movement as the woman began to move!  As she moved, you could hear the snapping the ropes and cables going in all directions!

For the revelation came that there were more with us, than with them.  The enemy only takes power when we lay our weapons down and fall asleep on our Watch.

The enemy never gives up and works feverishly behind the scenes, spreading propaganda and attempting to destroy our ministry, communities, and nations.

We give the enemy power when we lay down our weapons and purpose by falling asleep.  Those tiny demons are attempting to silence The Body of Christ, and to stop The Body’s prayer and fasting!

But now the warriors are waking up and going to their post as they snap the ropes that had kept them bound!

Fear NOT!  Give no place to the devil.  Our weapons are not with flesh and blood but with principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places.  They may fight with weapons of this world, but we fight with weapons that are out of this world.

In our silence and prayers, we are heard by God, and He commands us to awaken to righteousness and be the answer to all the turmoil in the land.

Let your Prayers rise as incense before The LORD’s Face!

The woman (The Church) is pregnant and in labor and in this land, she moans, grieves, and screams as the pains come more frequently, she is birthing the plans of God for this nation and the nations of this world.  She screams, as the souls of The Kingdom are being birthed — but where are the midwives?

The desire of all nations shall come.  For in the most harrowing experiences, the Church worldwide is in transition and the enemy’s desire is to tear down everything that is righteous and good.

However, the woman is birthing The Kingdom.  For the woman is birthing so quickly, the devil cannot stop it!

Yes, you see the manifestations of lawlessness in the land, and watch the evil bubble up in the streets and into the night releasing darkness, to attempt to take over, with anarchy, chaos, violence, stealing, and death!

However, “these events are coming to a close.  I shall sound My Trump and My warriors will come back, My Midwives are coming back!”

Look at the chaos around you.  Realize this is trying to intimidate you, and make you fear.  Our God will make an example of those who defy law and order.  God knows everything and HE is righteous and just!

Although the woman is confused with the pains of hard labor, now those who exited from her must now tend to her.

Transition labor comes one horrible pain after the other.  Transition labor must come for change in cities, nations, and the world.

God’s governing shall serve his positioning power for the government is upon HIS Shoulders!

“This transitioning is crowning the birthing, for she shall crown and come forth. 

For the glory of The LORD shall be revealed, all flesh will see it together, for the mouth of The LORD has spoken it, for I shall bring princes to nothing!

Come away My People, silence your heart and mind and see what I see and know what I know.  This is the time of all ages as The Church will arise!

Yes, great Revival comes on the heels of the greatest turmoil.  The plowman shall overtake the reaper!  I AM waking up My Church and shifting her mind set on Me.

No demon or organized display of lawlessness will prevail…. and many shall be ashamed in the soon days to come.

The battle is The LORD’s and it is for souls!  These acts of terror and lawlessness are but a smokescreen to captivate your eyes and to keep you from rising in the fullness of Power I give you in My name!

Come Alive, Breathe, and Live,” says The LORD of Hosts!

A Spontaneous Word of Prophecy

I keep hearing, “Stay on target!  Stay on target!  Keep your focus on Me!” says The LORD.

I keep hearing, “Stay on target!  Stay on target!  Keep your focus on Me!” says The LORD, “Do not look to the left or right or look at the waves and so much that frightens you!”

“Fear not and keep your eyes set upon Me!” says The LORD of Hosts!

“Do not focus or seek after the depths of Satan or his plans, for the more you focus on those things the more it will begin to take hold and poison your thoughts, so they will become strong holds in your mind.

I have NOT given you a spirit of fear, but of Power, of Love, and of a Sound Mind!

You let garbage in, and you get garbage out.  Take captive every thought to the obedience of Christ.

Seek ME and live,” says The LORD, “and I will tell you all you need to know about Satan and his strategies.

You don’t study Satan’s plan to play his game.  Know My strategy, for I will make you divinely victorious!

When you hear Me, realize I see the beginning till the end.  Satan has no goods on you unless you have given him legal right to be about your life.

Seek ME and live!  Live above not beneath, you are the head and not the tail, you are above all these lying propaganda efforts designed to intimidate you by Satan to sidetrack and take you out of the battle and your journey to victory!

Don’t listen or read things just because people send it or it is in front of your eyes.  Set no evil thing before thy face.  Set thy face upon Me, and look into the perfect law of liberty.

The enemy wants to knock you off your steadfastness in Me.  Look at what builds not what tears down.  I AM not leading you into victory to tear you down!  The evil one wants you not to trust My goodness in the land of the living.

Come away with Me and let Me minister Peace, Hope, and Love in the midst of the storms.  Think on things that are pure, lovely, and of a Good Report.

I know everything, and I know who you are.  I’ve kept you as you surrender and flow with Me.  I AM not keeping things from you.

Don’t doubt My care for you.  Give up this mistaken tone of distrust and fear, for I AM your exceeding great reward!  I AM all you need!

When you spend your existence giving so much time to focusing on the things of this world you fail to keep Me first, you play right into the hand of the enemy.

In every battle it’s the same.  The enemy always attacks the mind.  The mind is where it begins for it is the means of communication.

The enemy is able to get access through the gates of the mind through the eyes, ears, body language, and all senses.

Repent and turn away from all the distractions of this day.  Realize what has happened, forgive yourself and dust yourself off!

Get back into alignment with MY Word in Faith confidently knowing that you have a total provision in all realms.

I have the goods!  I AM your exceeding great reward My Beloved.  Selah…”

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things,”   Philippians 4:8.

“And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.  For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil,”   Ecclesiastes 12:12-14.

Remedy to a Sick Heart

Where you are truly loved and truly needed, you are to be received and treated as a gift from God.

Where you are truly loved and truly needed, you are to be received and treated as a gift from God.

A gift from God is to be treasured and nurtured so that it will grow in the soil of forgiveness and acceptance.  No relationship can survive betrayal, lies, and deceit.

Secrecy, lies, and pretense is a slippery slope that destroys trust and lives.  If there is no trust there is nothing to hold the relationship together.

For where there is strife and contention there is every evil work.  When jealousy and envy come it calls to itself division and a house divided against itself it shall not stand.

Pretty much after these things have ransacked the relationship it won’t survive unless both parties seek deep counsel and are ready to work together and when one won’t do the work it prolongs the inevitable, it won’t survive.

If you are the faithful believer in Christ and you have done all the work and continue beating yourself up in condemnation and guilt, it is misplaced.

You must forgive yourself first and forgive the person.  Part of being able to forgive is that we must love your neighbor as yourself.  Loving self is hard to do if you are down on yourself with blame and shame.

You cannot make someone love you or love God.  We are not God or The Holy Ghost. Conviction can only come by The Holy Ghost not you.  After doing all to stand, you stood.

However, after a long time, you found yourself slipping and backsliding and you found yourself regressing from your destiny and steadfastness in Christ.

You follow God and take back everything the devil stole from you. However, man has a free will to choose and you won’t be able to interfere in that.

There are things God can’t do.  He cannot lie and he won’t take our free choice or free will away.

God can’t even answer a prayer that goes against the person’s free will.  The only thing left is to forgive them and let them go.

You can become so spiritually sick, when you hang on to a dead situation, especially when the situation is taking you down in the process.

Hope deferred makes a heartsick.  Forgive yourself, forgive them and let them go.

Rizpah was a mother of two sons who were hanged and when she found them she stayed there with her two dead sons from the days of harvest, not allowing any wild beast or birds to land on them, and she tried to make her sons live!

But she was out of her rational mind, yet she was a mother guarding the bones of her sons just hanging there, for she would not leave them.

You can get spiritually and physically sick when we hang on to dead situations.  Are we like Rizphah?

Do we have situations that are not working and you have tried to keep them alive for a very long time?

Sometimes it is hard to let go and move into closure and be healed.

“But the king took the two sons of Rizpah the daughter of Aiah, whom she bare unto Saul, Armoni and Mephibosheth; and the five sons of Michal the daughter of Saul, whom she brought up for Adriel the son of Barzillai the Meholathite: and he delivered them into the hands of the Gibeonites, and they hanged them in the hill before the LORD: and they fell all seven together, and were put to death in the days of harvest, in the first days, in the beginning of barley harvest.
And Rizpah the daughter of Aiah took sackcloth, and spread it for her upon the rock, from the beginning of harvest until water dropped upon them out of heaven, and suffered neither the birds of the air to rest on them by day, nor the beasts of the field by night,”   
2 Samuel 21:8-10 KJV.

When you have done all you know to do, there comes a time when God will sever the baggage and bondage you are under.

Dust your feet, change directions, and move into the pathway of destiny.  Move out of spiritual abuse into freedom in Christ!

To those who are being elevated by God, just realize people will be envious and jealous of the favor of God on your life; even in our own homes.

Those who are insecure will seek to hold on to you and convince you how wrong you are to obey God.

In their own estimation, they compare themselves among themselves.  Everyone has their own gifts and anointing, why try to compare yourself and mirror your image to a person?

Let go, beloved of God, let it go, let it go, and move into exactly the location God has for you.

It all starts with our personal relationship with God.  There is a major work in secret.

We are to work on our own relationship with God.  God will do all the advancing as He is the author and finisher of our faith.  He sees your determination and obedience and He will reward you openly.

The Heart Of The Father

I hear The LORD say,  “Keep your eyes upon Me and don’t be weakened, for you are sealing the breeches through your work….”

The enemy has come to accuse you of rebellion to make you afraid.

This has come to provoke you to stop the building and to keep you vexed and alarmed causing your focus to be upon self with insecurity and fear.

But I hear The LORD say,  “Keep your eyes upon Me and don’t be weakened, for you are sealing the breeches through your work and you are making sheepfolds that shall keep My Sheep protected.

The enemy has brought evil reports, intimidation, and distractions to steal your focus.  Their attempt is to curse you and your labor in building The Kingdom of God.

Come away, come away My beloved, let us take the foxes, the little foxes that have come to destroy the vine and I AM not talking about the furry kind.

These are deceivers who say they love Me and you yet they are false deceivers attempting to spoil you.

Do not fear, for I know your going in and coming out, regardless of how it feels, press through and you shall fully know them by their fruits.

Those who have need to know and proof, soon all will know this is the work of God.  Many have been stretched out too thin and others who seek to gain from you and glean, are users hoping what you have will rub off on them.

You know who you are and you know your life, don’t let their opinions pull you away from your steadfast love and determination.  Trust Me and pull away from those who have caused you to be spread too thin.

Cast out the users, those who only seek to gain from using you.  Shake it off!

You are on full momentum toward the prize of the high calling in Christ, the enemy will come to criticize introducing a new reason to be offended.

But realize it is all about gaining control and manipulation.  Progress into My Purpose taking new ground will always bring those who believe, however there will also be those who come with twisted motives to confuse and criticize using the scriptures to defend their stance.

Give no place even for a moment even if they mope in rejection seeking to stay.  Stand for the truth and keep your focus on Me and they will leave,” says The LORD.

Seek and study the heart of God and give yourself wholly to His Will.  God’s Heart is always to impact generations for The Gospel.  Fear no man but let the fear of The LORD always be preeminent, for this is wisdom.

That seed God placed in you will grow and will need cultivation once it breaks ground. That is when the tender shoot comes forth and is most vulnerable.

Guard your heart for out of it come the issues of life.  Guard so that nothing will stomp your ground.  Be wise, these deceitful elements know what they are doing, and they are without innocence.

In jealousy they watch for any opening to place their agenda above yours causing confusion.  They make it sound as right causes however just because there is a need doesn’t mean you fill it.

The poor you will always have among you, but keeping God first takes spiritual fortitude and learning to say NO!

Concerning distractions and hindrances; just because it’s a duck, acts like a duck, walks like a duck doesn’t mean it’s a duck.  There are decoys and they look just like a duck until you see them up close.

It is the same way with the wheat and the tares, you can’t tell them apart until right before the harvest, for the weight of the wheat kernels cause them to bow over and the tares stay up.

God tells us not to uproot the tares lest we uproot the wheat also.

It is time consuming and negative to fight against denominations or various teachings that always major on what is wrong with them.

However, in witnessing this thing,  I have found these become so negative and they forget to rightly see all that is wrong with themselves!

Ask yourself when you witness these things in others; What is the heart of the Father?

God desires souls to be saved but when we are given to judging over God’s people and fault finding in what we see as false teaching and judgmentalism we will reap what we sow.

When we focus on all that is wrong with others we lose godly perspective and fail to see ourselves.

Promoting the bad and leaving off promoting the gospel message won’t save souls, it actually causes a religious spirit to take over like they did when Jesus walked the earth. Religious spirits major on the minor and leave the cross out of the mix.

When it is God’s time at the harvest the angels will do the separating.  I have never been in a perfect Church or Ministry and I imagine you can say the same.  No one is getting away with nothing!

God knows it all.  Can we say we are perfect?

Then why do we demand perfection in others?

I chose to focus on the message of the gospel and I let the Holy Spirit do the convicting and changing.

It is so easy to become a Religious Pharisee when we become negative and turn away our message from the cross into a list of do’s and don’ts.

Religious spirits becoming rigid, prideful, arrogant who make it their mission to tell people they are going to hell! When a person doesn’t follow their agenda of rules and regulations it makes you self-conscious instead of God conscious.  Who can be perfect enough to measure self to a religious Pharisee?

I chose to address the positive providing hope to a sin sick world.  Jesus wept over Jerusalem for the condition of the temple how the religious turned the people away.

None of us are perfect, yet with religious spirits you can never be good enough.  None of us are good enough that is why Jesus came as the son of Man, to live as a perfect man on purpose. He gave His life as our perfect sacrifice so that we would receive Him as Lord.

In our flesh we will never be perfect enough!  When we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we receive his perfect sacrifice and become His righteousness.

We are then covered by Jesus.  God doesn’t see us because we are covered by His righteousness. He made us right.

You see at one moment in time Christ hung on that tree and forever changed our destiny!  We are now accepted in the beloved because at one moment Christ did it all!  Amazing huh?

Just like it was back then, the people left the city to find Jesus; as many do today . People are hungry for the truth but many find themselves measured and judged by a false belief system.

Many have been rejected from the pulpit and cast out from various churches and denominations due to religious bondage.

But do you see? This is the good news!  They left religion and seek out the real message of truth.

God is concerned for all the lost sheep with no shepherd.  May we all begin to measure our own heart and ways and give no more heed or room to religious spirits!

Amen?

“For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them,”   Matthew 13:15 KJV .

26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” ’ ”   Matthew 13:26-30 NKJV.

13 “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. 14 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.
15 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.
16 “Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is obliged to perform it.’ 17 Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies the gold? 18 And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gift that is on it, he is obliged to perform it.’ 19 Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifies the gift? 20 Therefore he who swears by the altar, swears by it and by all things on it. 21 He who swears by the temple, swears by it and by Him who dwells in it. 22 And he who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by Him who sits on it.
23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. 24 Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. 26 Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. 28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, 30 and say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.’
31 “Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt. 33 Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? 34 Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, 35 that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 36 Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.
37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! 38 See! Your house is left to you desolate,”
   Matthew 23:13-38 NKJV.
