Around this time of the year, prophets worldwide are releasing the portion of prophetic words the LORD gives them for the upcoming year. Some prophets hear from the LORD, while others “borrow” prophetic words from other prophets. Some offer prayers and wishful thinking, rather than hearing from the Source of all wisdom and knowledge, the HOLY SPIRIT of JESUS, the CHRIST.

To be confident of what I hear from other prophets, I decided to ask the LORD this question myself: “LORD, what have you done, and are doing, in 2022 (5783)?” Here is what HE said.

“And now I have told you before it comes,
that when it does come to pass, you may believe.”
John 14:29

But before I share what HE gave me, I give two warnings.

  1. Learn to hear the Voice of GOD for yourself. It is vital to surviving this season we are in. That is why we are offering free 14-week series on how to hear the Voice of GOD. Click here to register.
  2. Ask JESUS the same question I did. HE wants to tell you what will happen nationally and in your personal life

This is what the LORD said for 2022 (5783):

The LORD led me to check the numbers. The year 5783 is the 2022 equivalent on the Jewish calendar.

Looking at the numbers of this year, we see:

  • 5 – Number of grace, atonement, life, the Cross, the five-fold ministry
  • 7 – Number of perfection and completeness
  • 8 – Number of resurrection and new beginnings
  • 3 – Number of the GODHEAD, divine fullness, a perfect testimony 

On the surface, that sounds extremely good! Yes! Until JESUS started breaking down my definition of “extremely good.”

HIS “extremely good” and mine were not the same.

The LORD wants all the glory. HE wants to get our attention and destroy all our idols. Persecution always produces reformation. The LORD is tired of us playing “church.” In HIS mercy, HE is proving that HE is LORD. HE is forcing us into Ecclesia.

  • We are entering a year of the rebirth of Ecclesia, the perfection of the five-fold ministry: apostles, prophets, teachers, preachers, and evangelists, Ephesians 4:11-16.

    The gifts to the Body of CHRIST are being purified and sifted.  HE will have a purified Bride. Therefore, those who value religion over relationships, investing in buildings rather than people, “my people” rather than “HIS people,” will fall, Ezekiel 44:23-24.

    For the true Ecclesia, faith will rise and be strengthened in direct correlation to their refinement through the refiner's fire. Their identity in JESUS CHRIST will be sharpened as they realize and utilize the supernatural power and the authority that is theirs through JESUS, even in the midst of suffering. The strengthening and training of the Ecclesia in these areas is necessary for effective battling and discernment in the time of war, Malachi 3:1-5 and 1 Peter 1:6-8.

  • The betrayal of nations is imminent. Those who were typically allies on the world stage will part ways, disagree, and betray each other. The sounds of war will be heard in nations that are currently at peace, 2 Kings 20:14-18.
  • The credit woes are coming. The borrower will feel just how subject to the will of the lender he is. This will lead to more destabilization of the economy of nations, Proverbs 22:7.
  • The great ambush is coming; many will profit from the sale of fear. I saw a serpent whispering into the ears of many in 5783 (2022). Many will be deceived, Genesis 3:1. There will be a significant rise in witchcraft, sorcery, and all aspects of the demonic realm. Nevertheless, within this gross darkness, the Light of JESUS CHRIST rises upon us even brighter, Isaiah 60:1-2.

  • It is time to clean house and prepare for persecution. This is the season to examine your relationships. Who promotes faith and who promotes fear? It’s time to come out and be separate, Leviticus 20:26.
  • This is the season of the storehouse, not the season of rain. The concept of rain in Scripture is that it has seasons, Zechariah 10:1, and falls on the just and the unjust, Matthew 5:44-45. However, this is not the season of rain. This is the season of drought; but for those with storehouses in Heaven, there will be plenty, Genesis 41:53-54.

Whoever has ears, let them hear what the SPIRIT is saying. Amen.

I SAW SATAN FALL LIKE LIGHTNING

As prophetic people, it is illegal for us to be afraid of the devil and all the results of sin in a sinful world – sickness, diseases, woes, sorrows, poverty, wars, hunger, strife, and even death. Why? Because JESUS said, “I saw satan fall like lightning from heaven…”

“Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.’ 18 And He said to them, ’I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.’”
Luke 10:17-20

This Scripture really hit home for me after my entire family recovered from COVID-19. Yes, the virus came to my home, attacked my entire family, and left the way it came…alone and defeated.

The devil tried to take our lives, but again, he failed. Everyone in my home recovered, according to Mark 16:17-18.

“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Mark 16:17-18

Why did this Scripture work for my home?

Why will it work in your home as well, regardless of the situation(s) faced?

The LORD reminded me that HE (JESUS CHRIST) is risen. The tomb is empty, the victory is already won, no take backs!

That satan, accuser of those who trust in the LORD JESUS CHRIST, has fallen from heaven.

“How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer (satan), son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations!”
Isaiah 14:12

Therefore, it is the will of GOD, the Almighty, that we triumph over satan in every situation we face. The devil is a defeated foe.

How do we realize this fact in our lives?

1.    Repent: Ask the LORD to forgive you for any area of life that you have given up or abdicated your JESUS-given authority, in the Name of JESUS. Remember, we are victors in CHRIST, not victims. 

“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” Romans 8:37

2.    Confess:  Ask the HOLY SPIRIT to show you what areas of life the enemy has come to steal, kill and destroy. Then begin to confess the Word of the LORD into those areas. Command those dry bones to live again in JESUS’ Name. Confess over and over as the HOLY SPIRIT moves your heart to do so. Remember, we don’t give up until we see the results for which we are believing.

“Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus,” Hebrews 3:1

3.    HOLY Imaginations: Picture him (satan) falling like lightning in every area of your life. Speak victory over every situation and refuse to give him any credit. Our imagination is key to our victory. See the victory in your mind and speak it out loud, over and over, until the devil is tired of hearing it and releases what belongs to you.

“(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” 2 Corinthians 10:4-5

CHRISTIAN WITCHCRAFT AND MILLENNIALS PART 2: HOW IT GOT IN AND HOW TO GET IT OUT!

______________________________________________________________

Last week, I started off our discussion on Christian Witchcraft with an apology from me as a prophet on behalf of other ministers of the GOD News of JESUS CHRIST.

I continue this week with that apology. Again, I am sorry we didn’t demonstrate the Power of GOD unto salvation (total healing, deliverance from sin and continued sin cycles, unhealthy lifestyles and anything else that troubles a young person’s spirit/soul/body).

To make this right, let’s talk about how Christian Witchcraft gained an entry point into Bible-believing homes, churches, and communities around the United States.

The devil targeted the youth and gained much ground.  

As church kids grew up, they hid their struggles with gender identity, sexuality, addictions, and much more from their youth pastors/leaders, parents, and church family. They felt left out, forgotten by GOD and very alone.

Many grew into their teens struggling silently, before they went off to college and obtained their“ freedom.” For them, church was the place to perform and behave, and a place not to embarrass your parents.

For church leaders who couldn’t see past the polite smiles, church attendance was the only measure of a young person’s spiritual growth. Many leaders didn’t bother to ask the HOLY SPIRIT to reveal what was going on underneath the well-dressed, beautiful lie many young people live.

We didn’t use the gift of discerning of spirits that the HOLY SPIRIT makes so readily available.

This created the perfect breading ground for the devil to move in.

The dead, not HOLY SPIRIT-lead church is the perfect breeding ground for Christian Witchcraft members.

As we discussed in Christian Witchcraft and Millennials Part 1: What Is It?, the deception mixes a form of “jesus” or “god” with other religions, promising that the deceived can keep their salvation (whatever that means) and still have power, peace, prosperity, and all the passions of the flesh…”jesus” without holiness.

New Ageism, crystal washing, and sage burning all fall into this category. It’s all evil before the LORD.

But there is hope! Please watch the testimony video of a Christian child who got into Christian Witchcraft and was saved by JESUS CHRIST.

What do we do about it?

1.    Repent: Let us (parents and ministers alike) ask GOD for forgiveness for any areas where we failed our children and youth members. There are many ways this could have happened.  

Let me be honest –there is no shame in my game. I have prayed this prayer many times: “LORD forgive me for any area where I have broken my kids.” It works and it sets the tone for deliverance and restoration, so it is very worth it. Read Psalm 51.  

“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart—These, O God, You will not despise.” Psalm 51:17

2.    Forgive: Forgive your children and those under your care for not telling you the truth, for not trusting you enough to just come out and say it like they feel it. Forgive young people for expecting us adults to be perfect. Let it go, where they have offended you knowingly or unknowingly.   

“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. ”Matthew 6:14 

Then, ask GOD to forgive them. See what Job did, pre-CHRIST in the flesh, for his children. We need do the same thing. Ask GOD to forgive them.  

“So it was, when the days of feasting had run their course, that Job would send and sanctify them, and he would rise early in the morning and offer burnt offerings according to the number of them all. For Job said,‘ It may be that my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.’ Thus Job did regularly.” Job 1:5 

“So Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.’ 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.’ ”John 20:21-23

3.    Restore: Call them home. Begin to pray for them, that GOD would visit them, encounter them, and turn them around. Below is a video of GOD restoring a son back to his mother. One of my favorite Scriptures is  Isaiah 49:24-25. Take time to beg into pray for GOD to restore your children and the young people in this generation back to HIMSELF.

“Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, Or the captives of the righteous be delivered?

25 But thus says the Lord: ’Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,

And the prey of the terrible be delivered; For I will contend with him who contends with you,

And I will save your children.’’

Isaiah 49:24-25 

Click below to watch the testimony video of mother and sister praying theirs on back to JESUS.

4.    Rebuild: If you are in a church that does not believe in the HOLY SPIRIT, does not use the Name of JESUS CHRIST in their preaching, or does not have a vibrant youth pastor who applies the Word of GOD in the Holy Bible with every day, real life struggles of young people and teens today, get up and leave.  

You will save yourself tons of heartache and pain later on in life. Check out ministries online first to see what they believe. Look for places that believe that miracles are for today, and the only way to Heaven is through JESUS CHRIST. The power for us to live holy, healthy lives is through the HOLY SPIRIT.

Very important stuff. If you need help finding a good home church or online fellowship, let us know.

Amen.

CHRISTIAN WITCHCRAFT AND MILLENNIALS PART 1: WHAT IS IT?

“What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? Certainly not!”

Romans 9:14

Before I quote Scripture, explain the term “christian witchcraft,” and give the LORD’s response, I want to start with an apology.

As a minister of the GOD News of JESUS CHRIST, and as a Prophet according to Ephesians 4:11-16, I apologize on behalf of every pastor/preacher, prophet, evangelist, teacher, and apostle. 

We have failed to teach those who our LORD assigned to us, so they are not tossed about by every wind of doctrine–meaning every new “religious or spiritual thought process/ancient faith/mysticism” that is contrary to the LORD our GOD. 

Rather than change the culture of the world, many ministers focused on the church institution and culture. But even with that we failed. 

According to Pew Research Center, only 56 percent of millennials in the USA consider themselves CHRISTians. Of that number:

  • 28 percent attend some sort of church service weekly.
  • 50 percent hold an absolute belief in GOD.
  • About 18 percent attend some sort of Bible study. 

Clearly, we have not done a good job there either. 

Again, please, all who are reading this, including millennials and younger, please forgive us. 

Since we are all still breathing, there is Grace to change – change the way we think, change the way we behave. In turn, this will produce the change in society we all need.


What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? Certainly not! 15 For He says to Moses, ‘I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.’ 16 So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy. 17 For the Scripture says to the Pharaoh, ‘For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.’ 18 Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens.” Romans 9:14-18

Christian witchcraft, as used in the USA, is the result of mixing a form of “jesus” with other faiths, such as Yoruba Ifa, Cuban Santeria, Brazilian Candomblé, Haitian Vodou, Celtic Wicca, German Teutonic, and many other pre-CHRISTianity, neopagan worship practices. As in, these were the false gods, idols, that were worshipped around the entire world during Bible times, by the Gentiles. When we see “Gentiles” mentioned in the Bible, it refers to those who worshipped these gods – non-Jews. 

Remember, pre-Abram, everyone in the world practiced polytheism (worship of many gods). 

When Scripture says in Acts 17:5-6 that these are the men who turned the world upside down, it is referring to Paul and other CHRISTians going from country to country, speaking and demonstrating JESUS CHRIST’s Power over the power of these neopagan gods (idols). Therefore, changing the minds of the people who worshiped these gods. 

Within christian witchcraft, “jesus” is considered the greatest sorcerer who ever lived and the “bible” is considered a spell book

The deception is simply acceptance and power.

Christian witchcraft offers acceptance of whatever lifestyle choices a person has made; whatever makes them feel secure and empowered is perfectly acceptable. This is especially attractive to the LGBTQ community, but not limited to them in membership. This devilish faith promises power to each member for controlling their personal destinies (wealth, health, happiness, love, removal of oppositions, etc.) and causing other people, situations and even earth elements to bend to their will. To accomplish this, members must learn how to cast spells and incantations, and perform ritual sacrifices. 

Christian witchcraft groups meet in covens, online and in person. They also have conferences in major cities.  

What a shame that people would run to the devil for acceptance when the loving arms of GOD are open wide. Nothing satan gives is ever good. It may feel pleasurable for a season but will always lead to destruction in the end.

“The thief [satan] does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

You know how fashion trends tend to fade and then reappear a few years later as the latest thing? So also, the things of the spirit. Nothing ever really goes away. It’s just repackaged and represented to the next generation.

Same devil, same tricks, different packaging, different players.

Just as the Power of the HOLY SPIRIT turned the world upside down back then, let us partner with the same HOLY SPIRIT to turn our world upside down for CHRIST now and save our children and society from christian witchcraft.

THE FAST OF THE LORD

“Then the word of the Lord came to Zechariah, saying, 9 ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Execute true justice, show mercy and compassion everyone to his brother. 10 Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor. Let none of you plan evil in his heart against his brother.”’”

Zechariah 7:8-10

______________________________________________________________

As a ministry of prophets, prophetic people and intercessors, many people ask how to fast, when to fast, and many other fasting questions.


Since we are on a corporate fast, let us look and see what type of fast the LORD will accept.

Zechariah 7 is an excellent place to start.

The people came to the prophet to ask if they should continue to fast as they were taught according to the law of Moses. Remember, GOD gave them this law. Moses did not invent it.

Nevertheless, the LORD of HOSTS makes this shocking comment in verses 4-5. HE says: “When you fasted and mourned…during those 70 years, did you really fast for ME–for ME?”


As in, really GOD? HE watched them for 70 years waste their time, knowing they did it incorrectly. They did it incorrectly because they missed the HOLY SPIRIT of the Law, and so satan gave the spirit of religion as a substitute.


The LORD of HOSTS does not leave us guessing. HE tells us the type of fast HE will accept.


“Then the word of the Lord came to Zechariah, saying, 9 ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts:

“Execute true justice, show mercy and compassion everyone to his brother. 10 Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor. Let none of you plan evil in his heart against his brother.”’”

Zechariah 7:8-10

GOD is saying that the condition of our heart is more important to HIM than the emptiness of our bellies. How do we treat our fellow human being? When was the last time we cared for the widow, orphan, foster care child, or victim of sex slavery? When was the last time we prayed for them and tried to be the solution to their needs?

That is the kind of fast HE is looking for…a heart that loves and therefore acts selflessly.

Does this mean not to abstain from food?

No. Not at all!

We see all throughout Scripture that we as mortals need to fast.


  • Fasting causes us to experience a deeper connection with the Risen CHRIST (see Mark 2:18-22).
  • Fasting humbles our flesh and puts us in receiving mode for whatever GOD wants to give us (see Daniel 10:2-3, 10-13).
  • It causes us to win impossible victories (see Esther 4:16-17, Ezra 8:21-23).
  • It gives us favor to accomplish the will of GOD on the earth (see Nehemiah 1:4).


Back to the HOLY SPIRIT of the Law.

The LORD wants us to fast, but fast the right way. Under the new covenant, we have the privilege of relationship, not just laws. When the LORD invites us into a corporate fast, we are to ask HIM what food(s) and liquid(s) HE wants us to give up for a season. Whatever HE says, HE will give the grace to do.  


Fasting without prayer is starving. In a corporate fast, corporate prayer is necessary. Hence the reason we pray together regularly during a corporate fast.


GOD news on fasting.

Once we remove the religious spirit off fasting, it becomes a joy. Everyone can fast. It is a sacrifice unto the LORD. A sacrifice of HIS choosing.


Today, let us ask the LORD to show each of us the types of foods/liquids HE wants us to abstain from for this month of fasting. Then ask the LORD to search our hearts to see if the sacrifice HE is looking for is within it.


Amen

DO MY WORDS BETRAY GOD?

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.”

This is a self-reflection blog this week. The title is very deliberate. Do my words betray GOD? 


In a recent meeting, someone echoed advice they’d received from a senior leader that just applies so aptly: "If it feels really good to say, chances are, you shouldn't."


Simple, right? Tell that to Peter.


“And a little later those who stood by came up and said to Peter, ‘Surely you also are one of them, for your speech betrays you.’ 74 Then he began to curse and swear, saying, ‘I do not know the Man!’

Immediately a rooster crowed. 75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus who had said to him, ‘Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.’ So he went out and wept bitterly.”

Matthew 26:73-75


Even in Peter's weakest moments, the mark that HE had been with the ONE was still hearable. 


So back to my original question: Do my words betray CHRIST?


In the middle of a struggle, will I speak JESUS into the situation? Or will I speak my emotional intellect and think I can bring peace with the force of my will?


There is nothing more deadly than a CHRISTian's mouth (see Proverbs 18:21). Hence the reason GOD had to burn Isaiah’s mouth clean before HE could send him – one of the major prophets of the Old Testament – to carry HIS message to nations and the world (see Isaiah 6). 



The devil does not have the power to give life and pronounce death. GOD gave that to HIS children, through the death and resurrection of the LORD JESUS CHRIST. 


Practical tips:


  1. If we (myself included) do not have any life-giving words to speak, simply be quiet. 
  2. Ask the LORD JESUS CHRIST to fill our hearts with love for HIM and for people, because out of our hearts, our mouths speak (see Luke 6:45).
  3. Understand that our words have power, and if we want GOD to give HIS authority to build up and tear down with our declarations, then our mouths have to stay sanitized. Actively begin to practice measuring your words against the WORD of GOD. 


Amen.

FINDING GOD IN THE DARKNESS

“For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.”

______________________________________________________________

When I was a little girl of about 5 years of age, I was fearful of going downstairs into the dark basement by myself. When my mother would send me to get something, I would stand at the top of the steps, looking down into the abyss for what felt like the longest time, trying to work up the courage to walk into the darkness. I’d use logic: “Nothing’s down there. It’s just dark. Nothing could be there.” I’d recite a verse that was drilled into me: “For God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). For the life of me, I didn’t know how power, love, and a sound mind could help with my fear, but I recited it anyway. And then, one step at a time, for each of the ten steps, I would descend down the stairway where I could finally turn on all of the lights to illuminate the basement and dispel the darkness. I chuckle to myself now when I visit my mother in that same house and remember my unfounded fear of the dark, dreadful basement.

What I did not know as a little girl is that GOD is in the darkness even as HE is in the light.

“He made darkness His secret place; His canopy around Him was dark waters And thick clouds of the skies.” Psalm 18:11

What I did not see as a little girl is that darkness cannot hide me (or anything that dwells in the darkness) from the Presence of GOD.

“If I say, ‘Surely the darkness shall fall on me,’ Even the night shall be light about me; 12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, But the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You.” Psalm 139:11-12

What I did not realize as a little girl is that, though the lights illuminated the darkness of the basement, GOD is the One Who illuminates all of my darkest nights.

“For You are my lamp, O Lord; The Lord shall enlighten my darkness. 2 Samuel 22:29

HE is the One Who has placed darkness under HIS Feet.

“He bowed the heavens also, and came down With darkness under His feet.” Psalm 18:9

And because of HIM, I don’t have to fear any evil, any darkness, or even death itself.

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4

What darkness are you facing today?


  • Maybe you are attempting to hide your secret sins from HIM in the dark. Today is the day of salvation. It is your day to be free and to confess your sins, for nothing is hidden before our GOD.


Job 34:21-22: “For His eyes are on the ways of man, And He sees all his steps. 22 There is no   darkness nor shadow of death Where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.”


  • Maybe GOD is calling you into the deep, the great “unknown” of our KING. Take delight in the fact that HE is singing over you in the darkness while HE draws you into deeper intimacy with HIM.


Psalm 42:7-8: “Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me. 8 The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His song shall be with me—A prayer to the God of my life.”


  • Maybe you are sinking into a pit of hopelessness and despair because of what you see happening in your world around you. Be encouraged as you seek the light of your FATHER’s Truth through HIS Word. Refuse to listen to the lies of what your eyes see and your ears hear. Allow HIM to renew your hope as you praise the Name of the Most High GOD.


Psalm 43:3-5: “Oh, send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me; Let them bring me to Your holy hill And to Your tabernacle. 4 Then I will go to the altar of God, To God my exceeding joy; And on the harp I will praise You, O God, my God. 5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.”


  • Maybe you are journeying through a wilderness, where you are completely living by faith, not by sight. Take comfort that your loving FATHER will enlighten your darkness, give you supernatural strength, guide and protect you as you continue to trust in HIM. HE will not…cannot…fail.


Psalm 18:28-30: “For You will light my lamp; The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. 29
For by You I can run against a troop, By my God I can leap over a wall. 30 As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”


Whatever darkness you may be facing today, rest assured, my friend, that GOD is right there with you…and that you can find GOD in the darkness.

“’Thus speaks the LORD of hosts, saying: “This people says, ‘The time has not come, the time that the LORD'S house should be built. 3 Then the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet, saying, 4 ’Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, and this temple to lie in ruins?’ 5 Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts: ’Consider your ways! 6 You have sown much, and bring in little; You eat, but do not have enough; You drink, but you are not filled with drink; You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; And he who earns wages, Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.’ 7 Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Consider your ways! 8 Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,’ says the LORD.”

Haggai 1:2-8

As the days to the Prayer Conference on June 12 draw nearer and nearer, I wonder what each of us is expecting when the day finally arrives? What is the motive behind our attendance? What is the intent of all our spiritual exercises? Are we finding ourselves in the “hamster-wheel” dilemma of much activity and no progress? Or conversely, have we drifted away?


Haggai Chapter 1 is like a sharp blow of the trumpet: Incline your heart and listen to HIM.


Verse 2:Thus speaks the LORD of hosts, saying: ‘This people says, “The time has not come, the time that the LORD’s house should be built.”'"


Yikes! These people, like so many of us, were comfortable ignoring the state of HIS Bride, the Church of JESUS CHRIST. We convince ourselves that it’s not time to get serious, it’s not time to focus on the Kingdom. We say, “let me concentrate on my husband and children first, let me focus on my grandchildren, let me apply myself to a successful career first...let me pursue my life, live my dreams.... It’s not time to build the Kingdom of GOD; it’s not time to build my relationship with HIM....”


Verse 5: Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts: ’Consider your ways!’”


HE repeats it in verse 7:


Consider. Your. Ways.
Stop. Think. Beware.


Beloved family, please take time today, this week, to re-examine the direction of your life.


Consider your ways,” HOLY SPIRIT whispers gently to us. It’s a loving warning and appeal from Heaven.


Verse 8: “’Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,’ says the LORD.”


Hallelujah!!!!


  1. Go up to the mountains” means to take your walk deeper into HIM. Do whatever it takes!!! Fast, pray, hear and obey. Remember, to climb a mountain is high (to backslide is so, so easy)!


  1. Bring wood” means to fetch what HE gives you in the secret place and bring it to daily life. Apply it. Minister to HIS people. Love on them, forgive them (especially the unlovable and the unforgivable). Pray for the persecuted brethren as we have been instructed.


  1. HE will take pleasure in it and HE will be glorified!!!!!


Amen.

Strategic prayers for Christian Jews and Palestinians

“For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.”

Galatians 3:27-29 (ESV)

A few weeks before the recent conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians broke out, the LORD showed me a dream.

This dream looked like a scene out of the movie World War Z, starring Brad Pitt. Only this time, hordes of both people and animals were climbing the walls around Israel.

Israel responded to the invasion and released something similar to an atomic bomb. It wasn’t an atomic bomb, but it caused just as much devastation, leveling buildings and wiping out everything around it. Then the dream ended.


A few days later, as I was praying with friends, the HOLY SPIRIT gave revelation of what the dream meant. The plan of the enemy, satan, that defeated foe, is to cause such destruction on both sides, as to draw the rest of the world into this conflict. Specifically, satan wants to:

  • Draw China, Russia and the United States into a proxy war fought between Israel and Palestine.
  • Destabilize economies and cause unprecedented bloodshed.
  • Launch World War 3.
  • Speed up the timeline for the antichrist to be revealed – not the spirit of the antichrist which is already in operation, but the embodiment of the antichrist as spoken of in Revelation 13.

Wow. That is simply evil.

Many born again, Bible-believing children of GOD have read the Scripture in Psalm 122:6-7 that says to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. This is true. However, let us pray more intelligently and strategically.

“For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.”

Galatians 3:27-29 (ESV)

From this Scripture, we see that Jew, Greek (Gentile), male, female, slave and free – we are all equalized in CHRIST. Through CHRIST, we also become the seed of Abraham by faith, through adoption. The promise of ADONAI given to Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3 applies to us through CHRIST JESUS our LORD.

What this also means is that we have born again, BLOOD-washed Palestinians living in Gaza. We also have pagan Jews, believing in Kabbalah and other demonic, idol worship, living in Jerusalem! There are sinners and saints on both sides.

So how do we pray strategically?

Here are some HOLY SPIRIT prayer point recommendations:

  1. Ask the LORD to forgive all the people and the land for the shedding of innocent blood, responding to the blood cries for justice with the BLOOD of JESUS which speaks mercy.
  2. Ask the LORD to stop any involvement of foreign powers, pushing their own agendas.
  3. Ask the LORD to give wisdom and revelation to the right people, so the right negotiations can be done to bring GOD’s solution to the conflict.
  4. Ask the LORD for additional insight as to how to cover our brothers and sisters on both sides with the BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST, pushing out unforgiveness and hate from the atmosphere, and the hearts and minds of the people, so that the SPIRIT of JESUS CHRIST can rule and reign.

In JESUS’ Holy Name, amen.

Praying for your Children

As an international prayer group and missionary organization. We see the need for GOD to intervene in the lives of children all over the world — from children born into affluent families, to those who are orphaned and have no one to care for them. One thing all these children have in common is a need for protection, guidance and encounters with the living GOD.

As women, we are wired for compassion and nurturing. These are key ingredients for motherhood. Our GOD and MAKER, YAHWEH, made us this way. Therefore, these innate mothering qualities, unique only to us, let us cry out with a loud voice for GOD to meet all the children of this generation where they are and take them to where HE wants them to be.

Pray these prayers in your own way, with all your heart, focusing on these Scriptures. Intercede for children who desperately need your unique voice and your posture of intercession before ABBA.

“So it was, when the days of feasting had run their course, that Job would send and sanctify them, and he would rise early in the morning and offer burnt offerings according to the number of them all. For Job said, ‘It may be that my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.’ Thus Job did regularly.” Job 1:5


“So Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.’ 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, ’Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.’” John 20:21-23

LORD JESUS CHRIST, I intercede on behalf of my children and the children of this generation, just like Job did for his children. Anywhere our children have offended YOU, sinned in rebelling against YOU and YOUR righteous laws, please forgive them.

LORD, I, as their mother and the mother of many children I did not physically bare, forgive them. LORD, as one who has received YOU, HOLY SPIRIT, I forgive them. Please LORD, forgive them as well. Let not their sins remain upon them, in JESUS’ Name.

“From there He arose and went to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And He entered a house and wanted no one to know it, but He could not be hidden. 25 For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet. 26 The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. 27 But Jesus said to her, ‘Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.’ 28 And she answered and said to Him, ’Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs.’ 29 Then He said to her, ‘For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.’ 30 And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed.” Mark 7:24-30"

LORD JESUS CHRIST, thank YOU so much for allowing this part of YOUR miracle-working power to be on display here, through the persistent cries of a desperate mother. LORD, just like YOU did for this mother, do for me. I pray on behalf of every child who has no mother or father to intercede for them. LORD, I stand in the gap for my children and the children of this generation.

I release them now, in the Name of JESUS CHRIST, from every demonic, satanic attack. I break off every tormenting spirit; suicidal spirit; cutting spirit; abortion spirit; emotional demons; sexual, seduction, jezebel spirits; rape, incest, molestation, abandonment spirits; lying spirits; spirits of rejection, anxiety, frustration, learning disorders, and epilepsy; deaf and dumb sprits; and mind-bending spirits that are clouding their thinking, emotions, and desires, in JESUS’ Name.

I use my parental authority to command them to leave my children and those of this generation, in the Name of JESUS CHRIST, and never return again.

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor [b]serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.” Exodus 20:4-6

LORD JESUS CHRIST, I ask in YOUR Holy Name, that by YOUR Blood, let it pay the price for the iniquity of the parents, grandparents, and great-great-grandparents of these children, in JESUS’ Name. Settle the claims that their iniquities required, in JESUS’ Name.

In the Name of JESUS CHRIST, I call all the spiritual debt against my children and the children of this generation “paid in full” by the Blood of JESUS CHRIST, and I shut any open ancestral doors, in JESUS’ Name. In the Name of JESUS CHRIST, I renounce on behalf of my children and the children of this generation any occult worship, any false god worship from generations past, and any that have been done recently.

LORD JESUS CHRIST, I ask for forgiveness on their behalf, and I forgive them as well. Therefore, I line my children and the children of this generation up for blessing down to the thousandth generation, because we love the LORD, amen.

“Train up a child in the way he should go,And when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6

LORD JESUS CHRIST, every living soul belongs to YOU. YOU made all things. Therefore, I ask in the Name of JESUS, that YOU would give every mother and father the wisdom, knowledge, understanding, strength, and courage, to train up their children in the ways of CHRIST. Please give each mother and father the grace, by YOUR HOLY SPIRIT, to stand up and advocate for their children and this generation, both in the Spirit and in the Physical realms. LORD, for those children who have no one to train them, please send YOUR servants, YOUR adult children, even me and my family, into their lives to direct them and train them, in JESUS’ Name, amen.

“But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 3:14-15

LORD JESUS CHRIST, I ask that YOU please help my children and those in this generation to continue into adulthood in their knowledge of the Holy Scriptures and salvation, that in the midst of persecution, peer pressure, and ungodly influences, they would not give up their love and pursuit of YOU. Let my children continue to grow in the wisdom of GOD through the HOLY SPIRIT. Find pleasing faith and not doubt in them as they walk through this world, in JESUS’ Name.

“Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain. 2 It is vain for you to rise up early, To sit up late, To eat the bread of sorrows; For so He gives His beloved sleep. 3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. 5 Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed, But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.” Psalm 127

LORD JESUS CHRIST, please come and build our homes. Build it the way YOU want it so that I can raise my children in it in peace and to YOUR good pleasure. For those children with no parents or home, give them shelter, give them YOUR Presence, give them someone to love and provide for them. Let all our children be raised up to the sharpened arrows in YOUR Mighty Hands, fit for YOUR service, LORD, and shielded from the enemy, satan, in JESUS’ Name.

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;” Isaiah 61:1

Thank YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST, for setting our captive children and the children of this generation free to live for YOU. Thank YOU, JESUS, for making a way out of no way, for the children to experience YOUR goodness, mercy and loving kindness. Please restore any of their lost years back to them, so they can be productive for YOUR Kingdom on earth as YOU intended in heaven, in JESUS’ Name. Amen!
