Keep Speaking My Truth!

“The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the word of faith which we are proclaiming … | Romans 10:8

Keep speaking My pure words of truth, the words that I release to you, and use the voice that I have given you. Do not be moved by adverse circumstances or by man, for indeed the enemy would seek to shut you down and silence your voice. However, I would say to you: continue to move forward in boldness and Godly confidence, proclaiming My words of truth, for they are spirit and life (John 6:63). Yes, the words I give you pierce through the darkness and release freedom to the captives for My glory.

Beloved, think it not to be strange when you encounter fiery trials and the testing of your faith. Instead, rejoice in the fact that you are participating in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when His glory is revealed. I am calling you to bless those who persecute you; I tell you, bless and do not curse. If you are insulted in the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the spirit of glory and of God rest upon you (1 Peter 4:12-14).

I am separating the wheat from the tares in this hour. I am calling forth My bold and fearless warriors—My lovers of truth, the ones who will refuse to be moved by the opinions of man and will not water down My words. They will speak only what I say to them; they don’t shrink back in the face of adversity or criticism. My soldiers, continue to move forward, bringing light into the darkness and wielding your sword of truth!

My Bride, do not grow weary in well doing, for surely you will reap in due season. You are My ambassador, and I am well pleased with you! How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news (Romans 10:15). I am increasing My anointing on your life, enlarging and expanding your territory in this season. Do not be moved by the opposition that comes against you, but know that I am bringing you into a wide, spacious place. I am your Protector and your Deliverer; I will keep you from the strife of tongues. I surround you with My favor and My songs of deliverance (Psalm 32:7).

Deep Cries out to Deep

Deep calls to deep
in the roar of Your waterfalls;
all Your waves and breakers
have swept over me.
By day the Lord directs His love,
at night His song is with me … | Psalm 42:7-8

Deeper encounters with the Father’s heart are upon those who have been crying out for more of Him. The Father is honoring the hunger in those who have laid down their lives in His Name, the ones who are lovers of God. A greater intimacy with Him is being birthed in this season, as the pruning and pressing process has produced an even greater hunger in those who have truly given the Lord their all. These people have made the Lord and His presence their number one priority. To simply know Him and make His Name known has been their greatest desire; they have not desired a platform, nor are they moved by the praise and criticism of man. Like Mary chose to sit at Jesus’ feet, these ones have also chosen the better thing, and it will not be taken from them (Luke 10:42).

You move Jesus’ heart when you pour out your love upon Him. “You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride; you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes …” (Song of Songs 4:9). He is about to reveal Himself to you in new ways, igniting the flame of hunger inside of you into a blazing fire. This fire cannot be contained, and it can not be controlled! Blessed are the ones who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled (Matthew 5:6).

Even as Jacob wrestled with the Lord in Genesis 32:26, saying “I will not let you go unless you bless me,” you have wrestled and have had that same tenacity in your pursuit for more of God. God knows your heart; you have truly given Him your all, laying down everything you are (and hope to be) for the sake of His Kingdom.

28295834543_864f79acc3You and other burning ones are about to come forth, and you will be transformed by His presence! When Moses came down from the mountain after being in the presence of the Lord, he had to cover his face, for the glory of God rested so heavily upon him (Exodus 34:30). You will also be one who will be a carrier of His glory. You’ll release a hunger inside of others to know more of the Lord, and this will create a ripple effect; a holy hunger will begin to grow in many others.

The Lord is showing us that even amidst the breakthrough and promotion of this season, He alone is the only one who will satisfy, like nothing else in this world has to offer. Those who are sold out to Him have cried,  “If Your presence does not go with us, do not send us” (Exodus 33:15). God is pleased with the posture of your heart, and His goodness and favor is ready to be poured out upon you in new and extravagant ways! You will experience and taste of His goodness, and you will truly be satisfied. Continue to make Him your number one desire. You are about to be overwhelmed by His goodness and extravagant love! O taste and see that the Lord is good (Psalm 34:8).

I Am Doing a New Thing

“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
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 43:18-19

“I am doing a new thing; do not look to the former. Trust Me through the transition and the change.

I am making your crooked places straight and the rough places smooth.

I am bringing order where there has been disorder.

I am bringing proper alignment in relationships that have needed to be repaired.

I am bringing order and restoration to your finances.

I am doing a new thing.

Do not fear the shaking that you feel. Know that the Lord your God is working behind the scenes. I am bringing about answers to the situations and circumstances that you have been praying about, for ‘the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective’ (James 5:16).

Continue to trust Me, even if the outcome looks different than what you had first expected. My ways and My thoughts are higher, and I always have your best interest in mind (Isaiah 55:8-9). Yes, trust Me with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all of your ways, acknowledge Me, and I will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6). You will have a new sense of clarity and vision in the days to come, and things will quickly begin to fall into place as you continue to look to me,” declares the Lord.

A Season of Abundance

The Lord replied to them: “I am sending you grain, new wine and olive oil, enough to satisfy you fully; never again will I make you an object of scorn to the nations” … Surely he has done great things! | Joel 2:19-20

I believe we have entered into a great, new shift. The heavens have been opened, and the Lord is releasing His abundance in this very hour. Poverty and lack will no longer rule the land, but as it says in Joel, “[The Lord is] sending you grain, new wine, and oil.” The favor of God is being extended, and there is going to be an increase in areas where the people of God have formerly experienced lack.

I sense the Lord is saying that He is breaking the spirit of poverty off of the United States. He is saying to this country, “You will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come (Isaiah 60:5).

“Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left … (Isaiah 54:2-3). I say to you, those whom have been faithful stewarding little are about to be entrusted with much. The fields are ripe unto harvest; where are My laborers?”

As the Lord’s people cry out in response, “Here am I Lord, send Me,” He listens and knows the posture of their hearts. He sees those who have been hidden and prepared in the secret place; they are the ones who are about to be called out by Him and come forth into a new season.

The Bible tells us that God chooses the foolish things of the world to shame the wise (1 Corinthians 1:27). Some of the Lord’s greatest warriors are the ones the world may call uneducated, unprepared, and unqualified. However, man looks at one’s outward appearance, and God looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). Some may say that you’re ‘unqualified,’ but the Lord is saying that He, alone, is the One who qualifies you.

“Know that I am your exceedingly great reward (Genesis 15:1). While you have been faithful to build My house, watch now, as I build yours! Surely you will spread out to the right and to the left. I am the Lord of the harvest, and I am going to bring the increase! Your season has shifted, and you have entered into a season of harvest and plenty. You will be one to help finance My Kingdom. You will be the lender and not the borrower. I am breaking backbone of poverty, lack, and all that has hindered you from moving into all I have called you to do.

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what I have prepared for those who love Me (1 Corinthians 2:9). I am commissioning you, sending you forth to go out and minister to this lost and dying world. You have the Light and the Answer living inside of you. I have heard the ‘yes’ of your heart, and you are being released and sent out in My Name. Feed the hungry, heal the sick, bind up the broken hearted, and proclaim freedom to the captives for My glory! You are my chosen spokesperson. Yes, before you were born, I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations (Jeremiah 1:5). You are My mouthpiece, My mandate and stamp of approval rests upon you,” declares the Lord!

The Trumpet Has Sounded!

On the morning of the Inauguration of America’s 45th President, I woke up and heard the words, “Blow the trumpet!” Immediately, the lyrics of the song, “Blow the Trumpet in Zion” came to my mind:

They rush on the city, they run on the wall
Great is the army that carries out His word . . .
The Lord utters His voice before His army,

“Blow the trumpet in Zion, Zion
sound the alarm in My Holy mountain!
Blow the trumpet in Zion, Zion
Sound the alarm!

-Gaither Vocal Band, “Blow the Trumpet In Zion” Lyrics

I sense that the Lord is saying to us in this hour, “The trumpets are being blown in heaven, announcing a great shift that is now taking place. Celebration is happening in the Kingdom, as this great day of restoration has officially been ushered in. Light, glorious light, is breaking forth, even as there has been warring in the spiritual realm. Yet today, even as My people have prayed, My plans and purposes have surely come about. I say to you, the plans I have made cannot be stopped or thwarted.

“Divine acceleration is at hand. My angels of change have been released over your nation to carry about and establish the plans I have for this nation. Prosperity, freedom, and revival will be opened up over America in the days to come. Strongholds of poverty, division, and a religious spirit are being torn down! My Spirit is hovering. I will visit your children’s schools, and even the youth of this generation will have radical encounters with Me! As I have said in My Word, ‘Your young men shall see visions, and your sons and daughters will prophesy’ (Acts 2:17). As My people, whom I have called by name, have humbled themselves and prayed, I have heard your voice from heaven, and I will now bring healing to this land (2 Chronicles 7:14)

“I urge you, as a Bride who seeks to honor Me, put aside your political views and offences. I have placed My favor on President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and their family, for they have been called for such a time as this. It takes great courage to walk away from all that has been familiar and step out into the unknown. However, this family has given Me their ‘yes,’ and they have walked forward, not looking back. I honor them, and I’m calling you to honor them with your prayers and your words. Life and death are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). As My beloved, I have called you to speak life and blessing over your nation’s leadership, regardless of your political stance.

“I have placed My spirit of wisdom on Donald Trump. He has an open heart towards My Word and has been seeking Me, even as it says in Jeremiah, ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know’ (Jeremiah 33:3). I have been doing a deep, hidden work inside of this man, as he is becoming sensitive to My leadership.

“I am also doing a great work in Melania Trump. She has been chosen by Me to stand as a freedom carrier. She will release My freedom and healing to many women, both young and old. I have called Melania to be an advocate for young girls, even the ones society has considered outcasts. I will give her a heart and a passion to help those caught up in sex trafficking; she will be a spokesperson of justice, lighting the way for captives to find freedom in Me. I am doing a mighty work in Melania. Support her; honor her. Release any judgments you may have and continue to pray and intercede.

“The winds of change are accelerating, and a great reformation is being ushered in, even today, as your President was sworn into office. America, your finest days are at hand. I am calling you, My bride, to stand united. Now is the time like never before to become My unified church. Have I not said, ‘Where there is unity, I command My blessing’ (Psalm 133:1-3)?

“My Spirit is over this great land, and My angels have been put into place, carrying out their assignments. As I have said, the trumpets have been blown in the heavens, declaring this new shift! This dayJanuary 20, 2017is one of significant change and victory. Rejoice! My plans and purposes are being established, and you will see victory and healing in your land.”

“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 . . .
Then you will look and be radiant,
your heart will throb and swell with joy;
the wealth on the seas will be brought to you,
to you the riches of the nations will come . . .
proclaiming the praise of the Lord.” | Isaiah 60:1-6

I Am Your Strong Tower

The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
The righteous runs into it and is safe. | Proverbs 18:10

lighthouse-in-a-stormy-sea

I am your strong tower, a place of refuge from the storms that rage against you. During troubled times, I am your present help. Therefore do not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride . . .  The Lord of hosts is with you; the God of Jacob is your stronghold.*

My child, know this:

You are safe.

You are protected.

You are hidden in Me.

I am preparing a table of feasting before you, even in the presence of your enemies (Psalm 23:6). I will cover you with My feathers, and under My wings you will find refuge; My faithfulness will be your shield and rampart (Psalm 91:4). I say to you, surely My goodness and mercy will follow you all of your days.

Watch as I advance and promote you in this season! I am watching over My Word; I will act upon it, and your victory is assured. Your breakthrough will bring much rejoicing and celebration for you, as you witness My promises being fulfilled in your life. 2017 will be marked as a defining year; you will see and experience the goodness of God in the land of the living (Psalm 27:13). You will freely impart to others that what I release through you, for freely you received, now freely you shall give (Matthew 10:5-8).

Do not be moved by the winds and the waves, nor be dismayed. I am with you through every storm. I am sheltering you; find your safety in Me! The storm will calm, and all will be well. I am arising on your behalf, bringing vindication and recompense in the very places that were once stolen from you. Yes, My child, you will recover all! Praise Me in advance for what I am about to do. The victory is Mine, declares the Lord!

*(in reference to Psalm 46:2-7).

Let My Love Define You

Let My love be what defines you—not the actions of others, nor their opinions of you. You are the apple of My eye and the delight of My heart. You have stolen My heart, My sister, My bride; you have stolen My heart with one glance of your eyes (Song of Songs 4:9).

Your desire to please the Father blesses Me. Keep doing good, and do not withhold good from others when it is your power to act (Proverbs 3:27). Leave all of the results to Me, and when you give, give unto Me. But when you give . . . do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you (Matthew 6:3-4).

You will be known by your love (John 13:35). Continue to love the unlovely, and honor others, even when they do not show you honor in return. Encourage the downtrodden, feed the hungry. If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday (Isaiah 58:10).

Keep walking down the path that I have called you to. Do not look to the right or to the left. Know that you are advancing My Kingdom, bringing light into the darkness. Continue to move forward, even on the days that it feels difficult, and throw off every weight that would so easily entangle you (Hebrews 12:1). I am well pleased with you, dear one. Run your race well, and press on toward the goal to win the prize for which I have called you heavenward in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14).
