The Truth Will Set You Free

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” | John 8:32

The Lord is doing a deep work in the heart of His Bride: exposing lies and replacing them with His truth. Many are in the middle of this process, and it may feel uncomfortable. However, know that the end result will be worth it all.

I see such a freedom coming to the very places where you were formerly held in bondage. The Lord is ridding His Bride of unhealthy thought patterns and revealing the truth of His Word to her in this hour. Your loving Bridegroom is reminding you today that indeed, “you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).

I am reminded of an arrow. In order for it to be launched forward, the arrow must first be pulled back. You are not going backwards, but rather the Lord is getting ready to catapult you forward into your destiny. Just like the arrow, as you feel the tension of being pulled back, you are simply gaining the momentum that is needed in order to be launched forward! Resist the lie of the enemy that would seek you to believe that you are going backwards, and that there is no hope for your future. The truth of the matter is that you are getting ready to soar to new heights with the Lord, and He is about to launch you forward!

Great and mighty things are coming swiftly, as this has been a time of preparation. You will soon see how the Lord has been working behind the scenes all along, lining things up for your good. What your Abba Father has planned for you is bigger and greater than what you could ever imagine! Oh taste and see that the Lord is good!

I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him (Psalm 34:4-8).

You Are Birthing Your Promise!

Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved. | Matthew 9:17

Do not fear the transition that is happening all around you, rather fully embrace what I am doing in your life. I am not taking away from you; I am adding to you! Though you may currently feel hemmed in and confined, soon you will spread out to the right and to the left, and I will enlarge your borders and extend your tents (Isaiah 54:2). I am going to expand you and entrust you with more, but in order for Me to add the new into your life, you must be willing to let go of the old. The stretching can be an uncomfortable process, but it is, indeed, preparing you for the new that is getting ready to be poured upon you.

In this season, you have been learning to steward well the ‘little’ that I have entrusted you with, and it has prepared you for the ‘more’ that I am getting ready to release upon you. As it is written in My Word, “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much” (Luke 16:10).

Though things may feel chaotic presently, know that you are in your birthing process, even now! Birthing is a messy and uncomfortable place of transition. Yet—just as a woman in labor has great pain and travail—once a child is born, the mother forgets the pain. Truly, you are on the final stretch, and your pain will soon give way to great joy!

A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world (John 16:21).

Be encouraged, My people! A new and glorious day is going to burst forth!

Because of God’s tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace (Luke 1:78-79 NLT).

I remind you in My Word that “the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7). Even in what may momentarily feel like disorder, know that My divine order and purposes are being established in your life. I am working everything for your good (Romans 8:28). Trust Me in the process, and do not fear the transition. For surely, you are birthing your promise!

Revival and Reformation—I Am Sending a Tsunami of My Presence!

Big ocean wave breaking the shore

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. | Habakkuk 2:14

Recently, as I was in a posture of prayer, I clearly heard the word “tsunami.” Shortly after, I felt the Lord lead me to look up the word’s definition. As I researched some more, this is the definition I found, according to Oxford Dictionaries:

tsunami (NOUN)

  • A long, high sea wave caused by an earthquake or other disturbance.
  • An arrival or occurrence of something in overwhelming quantities or amounts.

I began to hear the Lord saying to me, “You have seen the trickle, now get ready for Me to open up the floodgates and release unto you a tsunami of My blessings that you will not even have room to contain!”

“…see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says the Lord Almighty. “Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land,” says the Lord Almighty (Malachi 3:10-13).

“I will send revival to your land and cause the very river of My Presence to flow in the most dry and parched places (Isaiah 41:18). For truly, if My people—who I have called by name—will humble themselves and pray, then I will hear from heaven and heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).”

I sense the Lord saying, “Revival and reformation is coming to America, starting in the White House and flowing down from there, going forth into the highways and byways. It will be an unconstrained tsunami of My Presence, and the glory of this revival will be greater than even that of the former days (In reference to Haggai 2:9). Pray for your President and for those in authority over you, for the king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord; I guide it wherever I please.‘ (Proverbs 21:1).” 

“I Will Pour out My Spirit on All Flesh”

“I will visit your schools, for I will be brought back into the education system. I will cause revival to break out among the youth in this hour. Surely, I am moving greatly upon your children and those of the younger generations. They shall dream dreams, they shall prophesy, and they shall arise with great boldness and tongues of fire. I will cause little children to speak My words, and the conviction of the Lord will fall and pierce even the hardest of hearts. Truly, unless you come with the faith of a child, you cannot enter into My Kingdom (Matthew 18:3).

“It is written, ‘From the mouth of infants and nursing babes [the Lord has] established strength’ (Psalm 8:2). Listen, as their words shall confound the wise and pierce the hearts of those who would seem to be the most educated. For I, the Lord, have chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and I have chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong (1 Corinthians 1:27).

“I am also calling my generals to arise: the very ones who have been trained in the backside of the desert. They have been refined and prepared, and now they are coming forth as pure gold. They are My fearless warriors, and they have been trained and equipped for battle. My generals will arise, wielding their swords of truth and causing much damage to the kingdom of darkness. They will not retreat nor back down in the face of adversity, nor will they fail to speak My words of truth.”

In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed (1 Peter 1:6-7).

The Intercessory Bride

In this hour, the Lord is stirring a holy hunger in His Bride. He is awakening the Bride from her place of complacency, and she will arise and go forth, recovering all of the spoils. 

I hear Him saying, “Wake up, wake up, O Sleeper! Arise, so that Christ may shine on you (Ephesians 5:14).” We have truly entered into a new season, and we can no longer do things the way that we have always done them. It says in Luke that to whom much is given, much will be required (Luke 12:48). As the Lord is bringing massive increase and promotion to those whom have been faithful, even more will be required of them. He will enable you to steward well the increase that He is about to release upon you. Surely, you will be one who is able to help finance the Kingdom!

The Lord is wooing His Bride into a place of prayer and intercession. We need to be as the wise virgins, constantly having oil in our lamps…unlike the foolish virgins, who were unprepared for the coming of the Bridegroom, and were lulled to sleep (In reference to Matthew 25:1-13).

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16).

A Holy Spirit Wildfire

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest, as warriors rejoice when dividing the plunder (Isaiah 9:2-3).

The Lord is saying today, “Revival and reformation is happening now, and it will spread like wildfire, even going forth into the nations. For I have heard the cry of My burning ones who have said, ‘Here I am, Lord. Send me!’ I will cause them to arise and shine with great boldness, and I will fill their mouths with My words (Psalm 81:10). Their words will not fall to the ground, but they will go forth and accomplish the purpose for which I have sent it.”

Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
 See, darkness covers the earth
    and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
    and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
    and kings to the brightness of your dawn” (Isaiah 60:1-3).

You Have Shifted into Your New Season

“For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her vindication shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. The nations will see your vindication, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow. You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.” | Isaiah 62:1-3

There is much angelic movement and heavenly activity that is happening behind the scenes. Truly your season has shifted, and you have entered into the new. I believe that the Lord would say to you today, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland (Isaiah 43:19). Do not look back; now is the time to move forward!”

You have stayed the course and have refused to give up on the promises He has given you, even in the face of onslaught. The Lord of Hosts is honoring your faithfulness and endurance. As it is written in the Book of Psalms, “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life. You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes; with your right hand you save me” (Psalm 138:7).

“Rejoice!” Again, I say, “Rejoice!” Praise the Lord for all He has brought you through, and all that He will continue to do. Even now, the Lord is parting your red seas: those very things that have stood between you and your promise. Take heart, for you will cross over with great ease and possess the land!

30011591092_9665c8deea_o.jpg

I believe that the Lord is networking you with like-minded people who have the tools that you need to carry out the God-given vision burning within you. All that has previously been held back from you—that which has seemed impossible—will now come bursting forth with little to no effort on your part. Simply stand still, and see the deliverance of your God (Exodus 14:13).

Today I prophecy that there will be no more delay. You are coming out of your tight and confined place and into a wide, spacious place of victory. The very promises that you have been and contending for and have held onto for many years are going to manifest NOW! Your season has radically shifted, and explosive breakthrough is going to manifest. Truly, “you will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours” (Psalm 128:2). The Lord is going to give you double recompense and restoration where you had once experienced tremendous loss and heartache. Indeed, He is calling you by a new name. 

No longer will they call you Deserted,
or name your land Desolate.
But you will be called Hephzibah,
and your land Beulah;
for the Lord will take delight in you,
and your land will be married (Isaiah 62:4).

Red field

Again I tell you, you have shifted into your new season, and tremendous breakthrough is happening now. Get ready, get ready, get ready! For you will stand in awe of all that God is releasing upon you. 

“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people . . .” (Amos 9:13 MSG). 

Help Is on the Way

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life;  the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. | Psalm 121

As you look to the Lord, He will make a way for you where there would seem to be no way. He, alone, is your present help in time of need. Difficult situations will bow their knee to the Name of Jesus, as you continue to keep your eyes on Him!

The prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective (James 5:16). Your prayers are making a difference in the Kingdom, as I see prayer bowls tipping in heaven! I speak a renewal of strength to weary hearts, and I release the joy of the Lord over you today. I release faith to look beyond what you currently see in the natural. Circumstances are coming into divine alignment, and the Lord is making your crooked places straight. He is going to do what only He can do for you, for our God is a good and faithful Father to His children.

He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
    he drew me out of deep waters.
He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
    from my foes, who were too strong for me.
They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
    but the Lord was my support.
He brought me out into a spacious place;
    he rescued me because he delighted in me (Psalm 18:16-19).

 

A Season of Victory

28295834543_864f79acc3

You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; fine oils have been poured on me. My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries; my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes. | Psalm 92:10-11

The Lord is exalting those who have remained humble and have stayed faithful to their calling, even in the times of extreme adversity and testing. Many have been in hiding, and the Lord is about ready to bring those very people to the front lines. The Lord’s favor, promotion, and pleasure will be evident in your life, as you enter into a new season of victory in Christ! Like Joseph, you have been betrayed, thrown into a pit, and have encountered much adversity. Nevertheless, God is using it all for your good, and  you are about ready to see and amazing turn around!

Your character has been developed, as you’ve allowed the Lord to have His way in your life. You have continued to trust Him, even when things didn’t make sense and you could not see how the final picture would play out. Today, the Lord is honoring your faithfulness! He is so very pleased with you and your obedience to His calling on your life.

“For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted” (Matthew 23:12).

Get ready for an incredible season of favor, promotion, and increase. God is getting ready to turn everything around, and you will be in awe of the radical demonstration  of the Lord’s love and goodness in your life! “He will give [you] a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what He has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord” (Psalm 40:3, NLT). Even your enemies to be at peace with you, because your ways have been pleasing to the Father.

Your season has shifted; prepare to enter into your season of victory!

The Power of Our Decree

“You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you” | Job 22:28

The Lord has recently been impressing on me the power decreeing, and how important it is for us to line up our thoughts and our words with His. Yesterday, as I was praying for my family and asking the Lord to bring in extra provisions, I heard Him say to me, “It is time to open up your mouth and decree.” It is written in Proverbs that, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit” (Proverbs 18:21). I truly believe that the Lord is desiring to bring the Bride of Christ into the awareness of the authority that we have in Him. Today, I believe that the Lord would say, “You do not have to beg and grovel for something that I have already made available to you, for all of My promises in Jesus Christ are yes and Amen (2 Corinthians 1:20). See yourself as you are: seated in heavenly places with Me, lacking nothing. Now, open your mouth and decree a thing, and it will be established for you!

I am inviting you to step out in faith, as you open your mouth and decree this prophetic declaration out loud. Truly the Lord’s word will not return void, but it will accomplish the purpose for which it was sent (Isaiah 55:11).


I am a well cared for and highly favored child of the Most High. Everything that I have need for has already been provided for me by my Bridegroom, Jesus Christ. By faith, I receive everything that I am in need of. I decree and declare that I lack nothing, for no good thing will the Lord withhold from those who walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11).

I declare that my roots go down deep, and that I have no fear—even in what would appear to be a season of drought (Jeremiah 17:8). The angel of the Lord encamps around me, and I shall fear no evil (Proverbs 34:7). Finances and resources are flowing into my hands! Wealth and riches are in my house, and I open my hands to help the needy (Proverbs 31:20). I am blessed, so that I can be a blessing in return.  

I am the lender, and not the borrower. I am the head, and not the tail; I am above, and not beneath (Deuteronomy 28:12-13). I am seated in heavenly places with Jesus Christ, and I have been called to rule and reign with Him (Ephesians 2:6). For all that Jesus has, He has freely made available to me.

I rebuke the devourer in the mighty Name of My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for the Word says that he comes only to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). By faith, I wield my sword, and I take back all that is rightfully mine. The Word of God says that when the thief is caught, he must repay seven fold.

Even now, the Lord is making a way for me where there would seem to be no way (Isaiah 43:16-19). The backbone of lack and poverty has been broken, and I decree that I have more than enough in Jesus Christ! All of my needs are met, in Jesus’ Name.

I thank you in advance, Lord, for the fulfillment of Your promises in my life. Blessed be Your wonderful Name.
