STEPS TO GAINING WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING

“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.”
James 1:5 (NLT)

The need for wisdom in the Body of CHRIST is clearer every day. Any Christian that does not seek the wisdom of GOD daily is bound to end up walking in the flesh and getting off course from the HOLY SPIRIT.

The question now is: How does a Christian gain GODLY wisdom? What steps does he/she take?

Step 1: Stand in awe of GOD.

“The fear of Adonai is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Proverbs 9:10 (TLV)

This is where seeking wisdom starts. To fear the LORD is to be in awe of HIM, to revere HIM, to honor YAHWAH. If you are seeking wisdom, you have to first look at the ONE who gives wisdom.  You have to look at HIM and revere HIM or be in awe of HIM. Psalm 89:7 (NLT) says, “The highest angelic powers stand in awe of God. He is far more awesome than all who surround his throne.” This is just the beginning of gaining wisdom. This is the starting point.

Step 2: Ask GOD to teach you.

“ADONAI, teach me your way, so that I can live by your truth; make me single-hearted, so that I can fear your name.” Psalm 86:11 (CJB)

Here, fear comes into play again – not fear as humans know, but this is the fear of the LORD, the fear of HIS Name. I want you to understand, saints, that the Name of JESUS is the embodiment of JESUS. There is no separation between the Name of JESUS and who JESUS is. His Name is JESUS; that is why there is power in the Name of JESUS! Because the Name of JESUS is “JESUS,” that is why HE can boldly say that I AM. So, when you ask the LORD to teach you about HIS way, you are asking HIM to teach you about HIM…which then boils down to being in awe of who HE is.

Step 3: Experience God.

“In my prayers I keep asking the God of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, the glorious Father, to give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation so that you will have full knowledge of him.” Ephesians 1:16b-17(CJB)

 

So, we are at the beginning of wisdom and have asked God to teach us. We need to have full knowledge of who God is. “Knowledge” in verse 17 is epignosis in Greek. One of its many meanings is to have first-hand experiential knowledge, to experience GOD first-hand.

In the Passion Translation, Ephesians 3:17 says, “I pray that the Father of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know him through your deepening intimacy with him.” (I really like the Passion Translation!)

All this leads to the eyes of our heart being enlightened with understanding.

In summary, the process of getting wisdom starts with holy fear, reverence, awe. Next, ask GOD to teach you for the sole purpose of fearing HIS Name.  We have already established that HIS Name is who HE is. I AM is JESUS, JESUS is I AM. There is no separation. Lastly, we need to experience GOD first-hand. We need to know HIM so intimately so that the eyes of our hearts will be opened and filled with the light of JESUS, which leads to understanding HIM.

NO UNITY, LIMITED POWER

“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, 15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, 16 and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.” Ephesians 2:13-16

I had a vision, hallelujah! Thank YOU, LORD, for letting me see in the HOLY SPIRIT.

 

In this vision, I saw the penciled figure of a man much like in the diagram below. It had lines –walls of division all through it’s body.

The HOLY SPIRIT explained to me that this was the current state of the BODY of CHRIST. That is why we are not walking in the fullness of HIS Power, necessary to shift principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness over nations, regions and communities.

What shocked me was that HOLY SPIRIT was telling me that I and my small prayer team of between 15 to 50 people, depending on who showed up for prayer, could not do it alone! Why? Because we were too geographically dispersed. GOD (FATHER, SON, and HOLY SPIRIT) wants to set up warrior cells in our local areas to take down the rulers of darkness over our communities.  HE wants prayer cells to take down demonic powers in our regions (cities, counties, states). GOD wants to connect the local area and state level prayer cells together to take down principalities in a nation.

Without unity, we have limited power.

“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity! 2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments. 3 It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the Lord commanded the blessing—Life forevermore.” Psalm 133:1-3 The blessing, favor, and power of GOD are commanded into the place of unity.

The vision continued, hallelujah!

I saw a mighty army crossing the Red Sea on dry ground.

The LORD told me that this is what HE wants to do again today. However, if HE parted the Red Sea for HIS children today, only a trickle would walk through it. Some would be running back, trying to convince loved ones to walk through. Others would attempt to discover the scientific method of how to reproduce the miracle so they could take credit for its discovery. Yet others may be selling tickets for other believers to purchase before they could cross over. Let’s not get into whether this Red Sea road is only for white Evangelicals, or black African Methodists, or Baptists, and so on.

This is what satan used to divide us, blinding us to the power of unity.

“How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Unless their Rock had sold them, And the Lord had surrendered them? 31 For their rock is not like our Rock...” Deuteronomy 32:30-31

To win the battle for the hearts and minds of men, women, and children, we have to take the GOD News of JESUS CHRIST to the streets, airwaves, businesses, schools, hospitals, government, entertainment, science, finance and everywhere in between. All these systems have principalities, powers and rulers of darkness connected to them, preventing entry of the GOD News.

Will you and I become the unified house of prayer, that opens the spiritual portals and raises up the apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists and pastors necessary to take the land? Will we be ones that continue to pray and fast to keep those portals of HOLY angelic actions open over our communities, states and nation, much like in the days of the Azusa Street Revival?

Say yes to GOD.

Prayer:

1.   Ask the LORD for forgiveness for partnering with satan to bad mouth or tear down the Body of CHRIST and fellow CHRIST followers. Remember – the power of life and death is in our tongue, not satan’s. So what we see today, we spoke yesterday.

2.  Command every spirit of pride, every church scare, every trauma received by your soul from the Body of CHRIST, from the Church, to go now, in the Name of JESUS. Command every hurt expectation to be removed from your heart in JESUS’ Name.

3.   Request the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD to give you a love for the Body of CHRIST, to make you an intercessor for your local Body, and to use you to hold up the hands of your local leader sin the HOLY SPIRIT. Cover your leaders with the BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST, and pray for them to be unified with other HOLY SPIRIT-filled leaders in other churches, so that the BODY can truly be ONE in CHRIST.

 

Action:

4.   Ask the LORD to make you a prayer warrior and join you to other prayer teams where you can learn, grow, and take territory in the spirit realm, opening portals for HOLY angelic visitation and activity in your community, state and nation.


Amen.

THE FIRE THAT BURNS

 “‘Let these false prophets tell their dreams, but let my true messengers faithfully proclaim my every word. There is a difference between straw and grain! Does not my word burn like fire?’ says the Lord. ‘Is it not like a mighty hammer that smashes a rock to pieces?’”

Jeremiah 23:28-29

“Does not my word burn like fire?” (Jeremiah 23:29a)I was reminded of this Scripture when, during prayer, I looked at my Bible and flames of fire appeared to be coming out of it!

Almost immediately, the HOLY SPIRIT lead me to this passage (emphasis added):

“I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. They do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.”

John 17:15-19

Last week, we issued a prophetic word for 2022, which included the following:

“A great ambush and deception are coming. We were given a vision of a serpent whispering into the ears of many.”

This “great deception” is confirmed by the WORD of GOD. See below (emphasis added):

·        “For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones. See, I have warned you about this ahead of time.” Matthew 24:24-25

·        “This man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

 

So, what does all of this mean?

·        To be saved from the deception, we must love and accept the truth.

·        The truth is the WORD of GOD.

·        The WORD of GOD makes us holy by burning away all that is not Truth, i.e., everything that is deception.

 

As the days grow more and more evil, it is critical to allow the WORD of GOD to burn and strip away everything that is not of HIM in our lives, atmosphere, and homes. As we come closer to HIM, the more of us must be burned away.

Some may think this is elementary teaching, but many have wandered away from the fundamental Truth of GOD’S WORD and have accepted the secular teachings of the world…and even the church…into their lives. Again, it is critical to allow GOD’S WORD to burn away and strip away everything that is not of HIM, that we may be protected from the deception of the enemy that is pervading society.

 

How do we do this?

1.   Learn GOD’S WORD.

a.   “Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth.” John 17:17

b.   “I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” Psalm 119:11

 

2.   Listen to GOD’S WORD. There are many apps available that you can use to listen to HIS WORD throughout the day. No matter how many times you have read HIS WORD, there is something powerful and revelatory about actually hearing it as well.

a.   “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17 (NKJV)

 

3.   Accept GOD’S WORD. Actively get rid of the filth and the evil in your life and accept HIS pure, unadulterated WORD.

a.   “So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls.” James 1:21

 

4.   Obey GOD’S WORD.

a.   “How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your word.” Psalm 119:9

b.   “But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.” James 1:22

 

5.   Pray GOD’S WORD. Ask GOD to burn away everything in your life that does not please HIM. Ask HIM to make you holy.

a.   “…but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” Matthew3:12b (NKJV)

b.   “But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value.” 1 Corinthians 3:13

2022 PROPHETIC REVELATION

______________________________________________________________

Time: 7:00-9:00 pm (EST)

______________________________________________________________

As a missionary organization, we are also a prophetic prayer ministry. Fulfilling the Great Commission worldwide requires much prayer, fasting, and obedience unto the LORD JESUS CHRIST through the HOLY SPIRIT.

 

The decade of judgment continues. Here is what the HOLY SPIRIT revealed specifically for 2022.

 

· Prophetic word for the Ecclesia (Church)

· Prophetic word for the globe

· Prophetic word for continents and specific nations

 

PROPHETIC WORD FOR THE ECCLESIA

 

1. This is a year of the rebirth of the Ecclesia. The perfection of the five-fold ministry continues: apostles, prophets, teachers, preachers, and evangelists. The gifts to the Body of CHRIST are being purified and sifted. There will be a clear distinction between those who carry the pure VOICE of GOD and those who are faking it. HE will have a purified Bride.

 

2. In 2022, the LORD is requiring the Church to enter into a place of worshiping HIM in spirit and in truth. The Church must learn to worship in the midst of adversity. HE is watching. Those who learn to worship HIM, regardless of the situation, in public and in secret, will survive and thrive in 2022. Those who do not will be swept away by the world.

 

3. The LORD is also asking the CHURCH to choose between David or Saul. This is the year of HIS divine order. HE will set order within the Body of CHRIST. This is not about an individual church. This is about the Body standing in unity and reaching the lost. David was both priest and warrior. Saul was simply a warrior and without GOD, he fell into disgrace. May we choose David and not Saul, in JESUS’ Name.

 

4. The mobilization and “coming out” of the Remnant, the underground Ecclesia, begins in 2022. Look for major shifts and waves to be made. What used to be radical CHRISTianity will become mainstream.

 

5. Warning: A great ambush and deceptionare coming. We were given a vision of a serpent whispering into the ears of many in the year 5783 (2022).

 

6. Those who remain under the shelter of the MOST HIGH will find HIS protection, provision, and blessing. But those outside will surely be swept away by the world.

 

PROPHETIC WORD FOR THE GLOBE

 

The betrayal of nations is coming. Those who have normally been allies on the world stage will partways and disagree in 2022.

PROPHETIC WORD FOR CONTINENTS AND SPECIFIC NATIONS

 

1. Africa:
There are many in the leadership of the body of Christ in Africa who have ridden on the coat tail of fallacy laced with truth. There will be a crumbling of every house that is not built on the TRUTH. The house will crumble in order for the foundation of deceit to be exposed. This will happen so that HIS Truth will flow freely. We need to pray that the WORD of GOD going forth from Africa be purified so that, as people are sent out from this region to other parts of the world, only our FATHER’S undiluted WORD will be preached.

 

a. Nigeria: We need to pray against marshal law and a heavy hand from a government that is losing control. A dream was given of empty tourist beaches. When we asked the LORD why the beaches were empty, HIS response was that the police came and closed everything down.

 

2. Europe:
We were given a vision of fire sweeping through the land, going through the city streets. The streets were bare, but the fire was sweeping through to wake people from their slumber. It was strong and swift…the Fire of the HOLY SPIRIT.


There will be a mighty crumbling of ancient traditions and old altars and stereotypes to make way for the fresh, new Fire of the HOLY SPIRIT. There will be a crumbling of the old regime to make way for the new.


There will arise a great hunger among the commoners, a hunger for more of GOD. A mighty army shall arise from the youth and young adults. And even though the old regime shall crumble, those who catch the Fire shall stand firm and burn brighter than ever. They are the faithful ones, tried and true. And they shall affect the countries and the continent with power, swiftly, even as the 12 apostles rocked the world after the infilling of the SPIRIT. Those who stand firm until the end shall see the coming of the LORD and be rewarded on the clouds of Heaven.

 

3. Asia:
Regardless of satan’s disgust, even with the use of an iron fist, Asia will not be able to stop CHRISTians having a seat at the tables of leadership, progression, and expansion. Watch as CHRISTianity spreads throughout Asia even more amid suffering, persecution, and an iron fist. Nevertheless, the persecution will not stop the spread of CHRISTianity.

 

4. North America:

 

a. There is a restoration of the VOICE of GOD coming to America – the VOICE of GOD that breaks rocks and strongholds, and exposes and deposes kings, rulers of darkness and all those who partnered with them.

 

b. There will be an increase in inflation. We are walking into the days of the $12 coffee.

 

c. HE will cause the rising of HIS faithful servants, causing their voices that are as HIS VOICE to carry HIS WORD.

 

d. There will also be increased natural disasters, earthquakes, and the shaking of the land in 2022.

 

e. Warning: Beware of public schools in the USA being used to pressure children into fear of COVID and into taking the vaccine.

I rarely watch television; nevertheless, I turned it on and was immediately disgusted. Where did the purity go? Where did the fear of the LORD go? From Sabrina the Teen Witch to American Horror Story: Coven, we fed generations demonic junk and satan’s candy, polluting their imaginations.

 

How did we get here? We stopped demonstrating JESUS the CHRIST to cast out devils, reminding the world which KINGdom is more powerful.

 

Nevertheless, we are here. What now? We pray the full WORD of the LORD.

 

I have a favorite Scripture that I pray over my children: Isaiah 49:25. However, for some reason, I never prayed verse 26 until GOD reminded me that I couldn’t pick and choose which parts of HIS WORD I agreed with. See for yourself.

 

“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.
26 I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh, And they shall be drunk with their own blood as withsweet wine. All flesh shall know That I, the Lord, am your Savior,  And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.’
Isaiah 49:25-26

 

See how passionately the LORD hates those who hurt our children spiritually, mentally, and even physically. When the spirits of our children are fed demonic imaginations, their mental states are disturbed, dysfunctional, disjointed. It manifests itself as bad behaviors, rebellion, violence.

 

How about those who commit vile acts such as kidnapping, abuse, and even murder? Those actions originally came from thoughts – demonically influenced thoughts.

 

Look at what JESUS says about how GOD wants to deal with people who implant demonic thoughts and imaginations, thus preventing children from coming to HIM, the Source of Life for all humankind.

 

“Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me. 6 But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would bebetter for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”
Matthew 18:4-6

 

So what do we do now? Pray the WORD. Partner with the Warrior KING.

 

Have you ever prayed that “a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depths of the sea” for those who rise up against your children by planting demonic thoughts into their minds? Or do you believe it is art?

 

How about those who offer drugs, rape or torture children? Do you pray that they should be drunk with their own blood and eat their own flesh? No? Well, time to start.

 

Prophetic WORD to every JESUS follower/disciple:

 

That defeated foe, satan, is already fighting you through your children. Rebellion is not a phase. It is witchcraft (1 Samuel 15:23). If your children do not fear you that they see, they cannot fear GOD that they do not see. Surely wisdom teaches us this.

 

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge
of the Holy One is understanding.”
Proverbs 9:10

 

The LORD wants to bring home prodigal sons and daughters in this hour. Pray that the shackles holding them, and those who put the shackles on them, receive the justice and judgement of GOD.

Begin to fight in the SPIRIT for your children using the full WORD of GOD. Don’t just pray the nice parts…pray all of it.  

Remember the full WORD of the LORD:

 

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only be gotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
John 3:16-18

 

Partner with the Warrior KING in your prayers and actions.

 

Don’t just pray the mercy of GOD but HIS justice and judgement.

“‘But now I will not treat the remnant of this people as in the former days,’ says the Lord of hosts. 12 ‘For the seed shall be prosperous, The vine shall give its fruit, The ground shall give her increase, And the heavens shall give their dew—I will cause the remnant of this people To possess all these.’”
Zechariah 8:11-12


About two weeks ago, I put out a prayer request for a dear brother in the LORD; we call him Bill. He was in the hospital with COVID, and though it was not supposed to be fatal due to his age, his lungs were not responding to treatment. In fact, as of Sunday, October 3, his lungs were getting worse, his oxygen saturation was at 80, and he was on 15 liters of oxygen with no signs of improvement. 


I received a frantic text from him requesting prayer, and I joined family and friends in the battle for his life.

That Sunday night, I set my alarm to wake up at midnight to pray for him. I would add the sacrifice of sleep to the sacrifice of fasting already being offered up. Before I went to bed, I heard the HOLY SPIRIT remind me of something I had forgotten. I have seeds in the ground that are ripe for harvest. I can request harvest in this area. HE sang a song to me by Pastor William McDowell and I understood immediately. 


The song says: “I’m expecting a harvest now; I have seed in the ground.”


Simple, but powerful.

At midnight, when I arose to pray, I began reminding GOD, like Hezekiah did (2 Kings 20:1-5), that I had seeds in the ground and I wanted a harvest in the form of giving Bill back his health. I wanted health fruit. There were many tears shed in that prayer closet of mine that night. 


By morning, October 4, Bill texted with good news. The doctors said that he was doing much better, he seemed stronger, and they would consider weaning him off of oxygen. 


On Friday, October 8, as I was washing dishes, the HOLY SPIRIT spoke again. 


I heard HIM tell me about Seed + Time = Testimony (Harvest) and that harvest-fruit from the seeds planted are transferable. Abraham transferred blessing to Isaac, and Isaac transferred it to Jacob, who then became Israel (Exodus 3:1-10). 

HE explained that I had seeds in the ground and it was harvest season for me. So, I could request what area of my life I wanted the harvest-fruit in. I requested the fruit of health for Bill, and HE gave it to me. I could use the results of my seeds, my harvest, to benefit someone else. I could give him the gift that came from my seeds in the ground (Revelation 22:1-2; Ezekiel 47:1-12). 


This does not negate the prayers of others. I simply brought my fruit to add to their fruit, and we are all eating it together. It’s like CHRISTmas. Who wants just one gift, when you can get many?! 


When I got upstairs after OUR (HIM + me) conversation, I saw a text from Bill. 


That Friday, October 8, Bill was completely off of oxygen and breathing on his own. 


On Saturday, October 9, Bill drove himself home from the hospital after a two week stay! Hallelujah!


Since we are all growing together in CHRIST, I want to share my lessons learned.

There is a time to plant seed and there is a time to harvest fruit. As spirits inside a physical body, we do not know when harvest will come, nor do we know what flavor the fruit will be. However, we are given the opportunity to plant seeds everyday. For example, when asked to volunteer, to lead prayer, to serve others, to care for the widow (single mom), or to care for the orphan (child with no father) according to James 1:27, take it. It’s an opportunity to plant seeds in your own garden.

There is a blessing commanded by GOD in the place of unity (Psalm 133). I am learning the details with every life experience. In this situation, the blessing is because everyone is in different stages of their seed – time – harvest journey. So, if we are linked with the right people who have seed in the ground, there is a higher probability that one of those fruits will be a health fruit, or a financial breakthrough fruit, or whatever else we need. This is why a true Ecclesia, house of prayer, community of believers, is vital.

Finally, I learned, the time for planting seed is not when you need the harvest. You plant before you need it. Also, don’t come to me and ask me for fruit from my harvest if you are not willing to plant seeds of your own. Because when I need harvest-fruit, I need to know you have something to offer. No freeloading in the spirit.

Looking forward to your victory testimony. Amen.

THE FIGHT IS HERE…AND SO IS THE WARRIOR KING (part 1)

Many of us in the western Church were brainwashed over the years to think of JESUS as the loving Savior who loves everyone…specifically, cares for everyone regardless of their choices and actions. This unbalanced teaching has caused some to see HIM as a loving deity, a gigantic teddy bear, a genie of some sort that answers our prayers, forgives us when we make “mistakes” (with no consequences or accountability for those actions), and comforts us at night when we sleep, so that big bad devil does not get us.

No wonder children who grew up in the church are becoming teenagers and young adults who embrace witchcraft disguised as New Age. They buy the crystals sold in the makeup section of most department stores. Our children and young people think JESUS has no power.

Worse, they believe any power we as disciples of CHRIST have is for love, joy, peace, long-suffering, faithfulness. They didn’t read the rest of the GOD Book that shows us casting out devils, putting satan in his place, under our feet. Media portrays satan as the stronger one, who casts spells, causing people to “manifest” the curses placed on them.

If they only knew the Warrior KING, JESUS the CHRIST, who came to destroy the works of the devil (see 1 John 3:7-8).


Paul knew HIM. See Acts 13:6-12.


“Now when they had gone through [a]the island to Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew whose name was Bar-Jesus, 7 who was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. This man called for Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God. 8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so his name is translated) [b]withstood them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith. 9 Then Saul, who also is called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him 10 and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? 11 And now, indeed, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time.’


“And immediately, a dark mist fell on him, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand. 12 Then the proconsul believed, when he saw what had been done, being astonished at the teaching of the Lord.”
Acts 13:6-12


FATHER, SON, and HOLY SPIRIT love the world They created and the human beings They put on it. However, since we chose to commit treason (sin) and listen to satan in Genesis 3, human beings and creation joined a cosmic war – angels fighting satan and his demonic horde. There is nothing teddy-bearish about that. See Daniel 10:10-21, Matthew 11:12-15.

Yet some of us choose not to unleash the Power in the Name of JESUS CHRIST, the Commander of the Hosts (earth, elements, angels) of Heaven. We cower when witches, warlocks, and satanists show up. No more.


Let’s follow Paul’s example. 


As Paul was going about telling the world about JESUS the CHRIST, human beings who had willfully aligned themselves with satan (the satanists, witches, warlocks, yogis, high priests of gods and goddesses, enlightened (wokes), New Age teachers, and all their spin offs) were trying to disrupt Paul’s mission. 


What did Paul do? Filled with the HOLY SPIRIT, he commanded blindness on the opponents of the GOD News. 


What was the result? Those who saw what happened believed on the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Victory in JESUS is attractive. 


I remember back in 2012 when Chick-Fil-A’s president Dan Cathy went public to state his Biblical views on gay marriage, and the media ate him alive. Chick-Fil-A restaurants in certain states, airports and locations were threatened and even ordered to close. 


But for the stores that were open, oh my JESUS, the lines where never longer! It was like GOD said, “I love a fight because I always win.” The lines would stop traffic in major areas. 


Business was never better.


Prophetic WORD to every JESUS follower / disciple. 


Get into the fight, because it’s coming. We cannot hide from the fight. The world is coming for us. The demonic is coming for us in public. This is not a civil liberties issue; this is a spiritual fight to try to make the Ecclesia back down from the Truth of GOD. 


Once we back down from Truth, we are powerless. That defeated foe, satan, knows that. 


So when we are praying, don’t hesitate to pray the full WORD of GOD. Command blindness onto those people who willingly agree and teach blasphemy unto the Name of the LORD.  


Remember the full WORD of the LORD:


For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
John 3:16-18


Partner with the Warrior KING in your prayers and actions. 


The fight has come to our doorstep.

WHAT TO EXPECT IN 2022

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!

______________________________________________________________

QUICK ANNOUNCEMENT

Join us Monday Nights for Bible Study on Zoom
Time: 7:00-9:00 pm (EST) 
First Monday of each month: Prophetic Mondays

______________________________________________________________

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

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.
