Hold Back, Hold Back then Charge

Being quiet is one of the attributes of the mature saint.  “Study to be quiet….”

“And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing,”   1 Timothy 4:11-12.

I notice when it is quiet and still, and I remain in that place, I can feel a greater settled place in my soul.

Being silent is just as important in our growth to God, as is our obedience in saying or communicating.

Sometimes HE may say one word or maybe HIS presence of peace and person are there and that is it.

Beloved, communing in the presence of God should be as natural as air is to our lungs.  Our obedience should be as natural as well.

We are HIS Gifts and HE determines when and what we (OR HE) does for HIM.  If you find yourself feeling frustrated and aggravated because you can’t find enough words to write, speak or whatever form of communication you seek, I challenge you to get quiet, be still and know HE is GOD, (Psalm 46:10).

We are vessels of honor, fit for the master’s use.  In time as HE leads, then HE will open us up.

Did you know your silence speaks volumes?  Do you know that your body language and your spiritual discernment are active all the time?

Discernment can be good or bad.  We must grow past the need to make “our” words heard, and realize it is ALL GOD.  Since this is a fact we must rest and not get nervous or think God is mad at us OR something is wrong with us.

Beloved it is part of our growth so that we are not moved by anyone but HIM.  Let not the silence of our soul make us feel insecure.

Looking to man and man’s opinions will set you up for a fall.  It is simple beloved.  Hush, be still, and trust the Lord to bring HIS instructions to us.

I feel so often that my tongue cleaves to the roof of my mouth.  I don’t fight it anymore, I yield to it, because the my tongue belongs to God and I sure don’t want to spew words that are not HIS or in HIS timing.

Sometimes HE says One word.  God will test us over and over to make sure we haven’t taken off and started running stampede with the herd.  Remember, cattle have herd mentality and run.  Sheep are gently led and respond.

Be still, beloved and wait upon the LORD…..  HIS best days are ahead and you are part of it!  Be encouraged, says the LORD!

In silence and confidence we are defined and refined more and more.

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth,”   Psalm 46:10.

“Remember beloved, that all things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to “HIS” purposes,”   Romans 8:28.

“For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not,”   Isaiah 30:15.

Trust HIM beloved be still and know HE is God!

Web Page Revelation

This was written on July 7, 1998 and is republished here today at the calling of The LORD.

I felt like I was supposed to post this “Word in Season” a few days ago.  The revelation came out of my archives, however I disobeyed on when to post it.  Please forgive me, as I have also asked the Lord to forgive me.  I guess there is one person who will benefit from it.  So I thank God for His patience with me.  Please let me know if the word was for you.  God bless you!

I believe this revelation applies to the body of Christ and is a current move of the Lord’s Spirit, world wide.

The middle of May 1998, the Lord moved me to fast and pray.  It was during this time that I was formally introduced to the internet.  Up until this time, I had no desire at all to get into this stuff.  During a prayer time, the Lord spoke to me to create a web page.  Once again the Lord asked me to do something that I didn’t have a clue about.  But I was willing.

In prayer times, I would continue to see the web page, and a captains wheel.  I also saw a eagle swooping down with talons stretched out ready to snatch the prey.  I saw a balance, with a woman holding it, and a lead weight that was being uncovered from a basket of wickedness.

The Lord spoke to me that this nation of The United States of America, is being weighed in the balance and has been found wanting.  The Lord calls us His special people, and we are expected to have just weights and balances.

Prophets such as Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel use the picture of weights and balances to call Israel to repentance and righteous living.  Proper scales, become the symbol of human integrity, honesty and righteousness.

During that time frame, at our service one Friday night, we got caught up in worship. I and several others were having visions too.  I personally could see the Holy of Holies and visions of the ark and coals were seen.  The Lord revealed to me an ink well and writer’s quill.  Then I saw an fountain pen and notebook…. then a computer keyboard.

The Lord asked me, “Daughter, what do these have in common?”  I said, “Writing, Lord.”  He said, “You’re right, and you shall write all I give you.”

The different means of writing, speaks of the advances of communications.  Clara, a deaconess here at this ministry, shared a dream with us that evening, and my daughter Meggie had a dream that went with that one.  Some of the dream that Clara had is personal, so I will relate only what is applicable to the body of Christ.  Clara saw a room filled with people, with a lot of clamor.  She heard lots of voices speaking negative about what was going on in the next room.  She related that none of the distractions were hindering what I had to do.

As we walked into the next room, it appeared to be outside somewhere.  On the ground was a white sheet that went as far as the eye could see.  The edges were emerald green and the sheet was pure white.  She further related, that two people I know, walked out on the sheet, then she said I prophesied “your mouth, your hands and feet.”  These two people fell under the power of God.  Then I walked out on the sheet and I fell under the power.

The Lord gave me the interpretation the next morning:

  • The pure white sheet represents a web page.  The pure white – symbolic of the purity of the words and the means on which they are written.
  • The emerald green border symbolic of new beginning.  This is the name of the ministry God gave me long before.
  • The size of the page as far as the eye can see, represents the ramifications of influence and international scope, for there seemed to be no end, like looking at the horizon.
  • The prophecy, “Your mouth, your hands and feet,” means that the spoken, written, walked out word of God shall multiply beyond our traditional methods.  We will literally walk out the living Word of God…… for we stand on His Word.

Cyberspace belongs to the kingdom [of darkness] and we are to possess it by force.  Remember, we will face new devils on new levels.  International cyberspace devils.  Possessing the land includes the internet.  Ramifications of influence in every nation, in isolated areas, we will go into all the world with the gospel.

You may wonder, why God would ask me to do something that I don’t know how to do.  Not only did the Lord tell me to create a web page, He also gave me a time frame in which it would be done!

The Lord spoke to me, that the page would be up by the end of June.  That was quite a step, since I didn’t know how to walk.  The beginning of June, I did not have a clue what to do, I just prayed and took off, exploring on the web, learning all I could.

Around the end of May when I was playing on the computer, my son taught me how to surf the web.  Of course, being from the prophetic persuasion, I surfed right in to the prophet’s camp ground.

I was amazed how much prophetic words there were available and easily got lost inside every night for hours.  For some reason, I kept being drawn like a magnet to a place called Faith Tabernacle.  It did not matter where I explored, I always ended up back there somehow.

It was during this time frame that the Lord spoke to me about striking the waters, casting salt and pronouncing jubilee over this area in the Matsu valley.  I came to the [Faith Tabernacle] Small Straws, Trumpet and What’s Up pages.  I read prophecies that were like coded orders for me.  They were exactly what God had said for me to do.

I did a prophetic enactment where I went to the rivers on May 31, 1998 feast of Pentecost.  Since that day, it has been like a cap came off this particular well, and has been gushing ever since.

Oh yeah…..God sent me a internet technician and he spent his own money to have the web site created, and it was he and I who worked for seven days.  Well, the web page was up by June 24, 1998, after just starting to get on-line in at the end of May 1998.  Less than one month later, the website was on-line and so was I, to the Glory of The Father!

Discernment or the Accuser

Do you think the GOD you love, serve and ask for forgiveness would possibly reveal your secrets to others so they would blast them over the airwaves?

If the LORD forgives and the WORD says HE does, if we ask HIM do you think HE would bring up things that are forgiven.  If GOD chooses to forget, so should we.  As far as the east is from the west HE remembers our transgressions no more.

If there are other people bringing up things that are forgiven or think they have “discernment” on you, remind the devil that he is the accuser of the brethren and that no one has power or rights over you to do anything!  Remember our battle is not with flesh and blood!

“For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons.  For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), Being in readiness to punish every [insubordinate for his] disobedience, when your own submission and obedience [as a church] are fully secured and complete,”   2 Corinthians 10:3-6 Amplified Bible.

The LORD who knows us better than we know ourselves chooses to forgive us when we ask and HE forgets it!  PERIOD!

People remember our sin, mistakes and failures but GOD chooses to forget.  HE cannot see it and there is no remembrance!  I praise the LORD that HE knows me and especially my heart.  Aren’t you glad HE knows you?

Failure makes your future. Failure is not an ending; it is a new beginning!  Failure is stepping stones to greater victory!  JESUS himself learned obedience by what HE suffered and he didn’t commit sin.  We all fail in many ways but GOD takes all the mess and makes it a message in us.

We are living epistles seen and read of all men.  Our failures and problems have given us experience, and with that experience, hope and hope does not make us ashamed.  We all must learn to give no place to condemnation, guilt and discouragement.

If we have repented HE remembers it NO more and now we get up dust ourselves off and press forward toward the mark of the high calling in Christ!  Forgive those people who accuse you and be still and know He is GOD.  Kill them with kindness!  Overcome evil with good, AMEN?

The Samuel Generation

The spiritual house of Eli, whose eyes have dimmed that they can no longer see shall be removed from their positions.  

The sons of Eli do not regard me in their hearts… they thrust in their fleshhooks into the caldron and heap to themselves the best parts and the fat.

The sin of the sons of Eli is very great, but the sin Eli is greater…. for he would not confront the sin in My house to completion.  It was told to him what was going on with those who served at the door of the Tent of Meeting….. his slap on the hand meant nothing to his sons, and they regarded not their fathers council.

Those things that I once winked at… I will not tolerate anymore. House of Eli… why do you kick and trample upon My Sacrifice and My offering which I have commanded, and honor your sons above Me by fattening yourselves upon the choicest part of every offering of My people?

Spiritual house of Eli, hear the word of the Lord……  Those who honor Me, I will honor, and those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.

Behold, the time is coming when I will cut off your strength and the strength of you own father’s house.

I have raised up faithful priests, who shall do according to what is in My heart and mind. And I will build them a sure house, and they shall walk before Me forever.

My lamp has not gone completely out in My temple, for I AM raising up and releasing a company who will answer and listen to Me.

I have been testing your loyalties… who will you seek out?

The house of Eli will perceive more by feeling than by Spiritual wisdom.  They will perceive those that I AM calling to this company.  These servants shall listen.

I announce NOW, that I will judge the spiritual house of Eli for the iniquity of which he knew…. for his sons brought a curse upon themselves and all those with them.  Eli did not restrain them.

Pray for the spiritual house of Eli…… that they will repent.

The Samuel generation, totally given to ME shall rise.  The light of illumination shall not depart.  None of his words fell to the ground, all will be fulfilled, says the LORD…

See 1 Samuel 3:1-21.

Balance and the Net

I saw a tight rope with a person walking and holding the pole for balance.  Underneath, I saw a net.

The carefulness of each step, is the walk of the hour, making sure what we do is accurate.

I believe this means that those called to walk in high places will have a very narrow margin.

For the way is narrow, contracted by pressures and few there be that find it,  [Matthew 7:13-14].

To whom much is given, much is required,   [Luke 12:48].

The pole is to keep us balanced, which speaks of our message and submission to the net.

The net is our corporate network of safety and protection where we fit.

The net also provides us with safety when we fall, so we won’t fall down to the ground.

My Quest

~~  Prophetic Prose  ~~

I desire thy eyes that I may see
That walk in realms of eternity

Such eyes that make thy kingdom come
In a world of obscurity and gloom

Thy lady desires the depth so true
That she may go and stay lost in you

Deep pools formed from mountain streams
So pure so clean the depth
No one can fathom or dream

I understand your passion too
I long to swim deeply in you
To rise entwined circled in time

Lost in depth my private steps
Going only with MY lovers breath

The oasis found in desert sounds
Only confirms where love abounds
Springing up his glory comes

As lost in you within your pool
I safely abide in your shadow too

Identity lost the cause the cross
Cannot begin to measure the loss
My lover my life I am lost in thy quest
To gaze upon thy lovely face

To look into thy eyes so deep
So divine that surpasses all time

Depth of soul and spirit that knows no bounds
That is seen with an everlasting crown
Royalty and reign I sit with you in heavenly plains

My lover is mine and I am HIS
Nary doth another hold my heart like his

When my champion conquered the mark
How glorious to walk in HIM through the dark
Lighting each step each pain regardless
Of shame I know the way to guide others in

Thy eyes I desire so deep so true that fill
My innermost pool that others won’t see me
Only you

Depth that none other can compare
For His eyes see all that is everywhere

For eternity hath no end and depth
Who can fathom the vastness of it

My quest is to see my lovers eyes and be
Consumed in his love divine that surpasses
All time

To know my lovers breath and touch
That keeps me secure to His cross
To keep me sound when all I feel
Is bound nary doth another hold so
True to be engulfed in you

Keep me in your hidden way so when
I go through troublous times I may gain
Insight through the pain

I desire to wholly lean upon my lovers
Breast to hear his will in the secret place
How can I ever say no to you
As I choose to be established in you

Naked I came and naked I remain
Last Adam you are wonderfully the same
Yet in the passion of my heart
I long to draw into your part
Fate and destiny belong to me
How can I say no when you are my destiny

I beheld the face of a man one day
Who walked in a very humble way
I observed the facts of his case too
Yet I knew that this one made the
Way for intimacy in realms unseen too

I know my beloved is in me and I in HIM
And where does one begin to describe
The glory of HIS marvelous Grace
That causes me to see HIS face

To fathom life in a new and living way
By stripping the blindness from mine eyes
To finally see with the masters eyes

Lost in depth and private steps
Going only with MY lovers breath

The oasis found in desert sounds
Only confirms where love abounds
Springing up his glory comes

In thy eyes I see depth like I never known
Though the world pulls at me to anchor me bound
I know you will never let me down

I choose to follow the sacred eyes I see
That will never cease to be
Depth of soul and spirit that knows no bounds
That is seen with an everlasting crown

Royalty and reign
As I sit with you in heavenly plains
One can only remain in that place
Satisfied with our lovers face

Cut Down the Tree

“For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.  Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant…
I can tell you assuredly that EVERYTHING I have suffered both willingly by choice and through other means has been used as a testimony for others.  The fruits of the Spirit are growing within as the pruning takes place and more grafts come into the vine bringing fullness to others,”  
Job 14:7-9.

Some of you are wondering and wandering, “Why am I here or there?”  You feel cut off, you feel pruned, you wonder.  That pruning process isn’t just to cut away dead wood, it is also to cut away live shoots and can be grafted into another tree to aide it in producing more fruit.

I have seen many splits but not all of them were bad.  If you read the book of Acts you will find that Paul and Barnabus had a SHARP disagreement and they parted company.  Yet they still advanced the gospel and it continued to grow.

So in the midst of death of VISION, GOD brings a New Beginning and the gospel will go on. We got to move on and learn from it all.

When God puts you somewhere, you will feel that you fit there.  When God is working on moving people out of a church or ministry, often people do not understand the fullness of it, yet they know God is telling them to go.

We all go through various stages of growth and once we acquire what the Lord has us learn often he will lead us out unless HE keeps us there to help make disciples and help that local body of believers. It’s all about souls.

A reminder; In the place God puts you, there will be agreement as it is so important to have a protected sheep fold where people can come in and learn from the Great Shepherd of our souls.

Other types of splits can result from unrepented sin, especially in the financial realm, integrity, honesty, loyalty etc.  I don’t believe in a board, I believe in a circle of advisors.  “For in the multitude of advisors there is safety”.

It scares me sometimes the way some in the body only want YES men.  I would rather have 7 people around me that know my good points and bad, know all my faults yet they love me and pray for me.  That is safety, that is comfort because God has tested them, and proven to me their faithfulness to God and to me.  I am now seeing God set things up for me.  I am seeing signs and God is revealing people to me who will be a part of ministry.

Whatever we come under, we become. It is a dangerous thing also to hide behind facades.  I know also that I am human and I cannot do ministry alone.  It is dangerous to seek after only yes men and only listen to what we want to hear . Yes ultimately, I have to make decisions based on prayer and the bottom line is, we all need accountability with our responsibility.  I KNOW I can’t do it all and I know how to delegate and I want God to prune me and keep me in a place of light.

So here I am again, asking for your prayers and I hope as you read this something in you is stirred because I am stirring up the prophetic pot and the dregs got to come to the top.  Yes I am prophetically releasing words into your soul and spirit to be stirred up, “Not by might nor by power but by MY SPIRIT says the LORD”.  Woe be unto me if I am not transparent because if I died with him, I was dead, buried and resurrected to live in newness of life. If I died with him I will reign with HIM.

What is defamation of character or reputation, or accusations?  Dead men don’t talk.  So I am sorry if my humility offends you, it is meant to.  God break us until we are what you called and ordained each of us to be…..  I don’t seek great things for myself. I don’t seek to be known except to be well known by the Lord.  I could care less if I ever preach, teach or prophecy.  I just don’t care anymore.  I want Jesus.  “IF your life is hid in God, seek those things which are above”.

In this current season and beyond, as you develop your ability to become more transparent in the Lord be prepared to be visited by angels that will bring divine strategies’.  Prepare to be visited by prophets and apostles who will come in ways that God will test your devotion to Christ.

These who are being sent who have been brutally broken through trial to the point of despair will portray the meekness, grace and mercy of the Lord.  Many of these sent ones have lost everything and gave it all for the Lord.  These who are being sent with a mandate to establish, confirm and settle matters will come with such anointing, many of the religious will miss out because of the mindset of lumping together the false and true.

God will be testing many leaders in these days.
