LOOKING AWAY UNTO JESUS!

Beloved, it is time for renewed focus! The temptation of distraction is great – especially through unexpected issues around you.

Do not be lured into the downward spiral of negative thinking by focusing on your problems. Instead, “Lay aside every weight (of worry and stress) “; then…. Look away unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith”. (Heb.12:1-2)

It requires a discipline to keep your eyes in the posture of “beholding”, but when you shut down the bombardment of enticing thoughts to just quickly give attention to this or that, pressing in to seek the face of our Beloved, the rewards are unimaginable. When we behold Him, all other things fade away and we can immerse ourselves in the glory of His Presence. He knows what we need, but our worship opens the sluice gates of heaven for blessings untold – secret riches of hidden mysteries in the glory!

Be encouraged to prioritize your time with Him above all other voices that clamor for attention. Shut yourself in in the secret place under the shadow of his wings in intimacy and wait on Him – being empowered by the power of His might by getting immersed in the river of glory. This is your place of strengthening to stand in bold authority with the Word of God on your lips – released as a destructive force against the enemy, but at the same time as a creative force to establish His Kingdom.

God bless you to overflowing

OPPORTUNE TIME TO LAUNCH INTO NEW VENTURES!

Beloved, the Lord spoke to me about the month of March, being a launching month!

IT IS A KAIROS TIME TO GO THROUGH THE DOUBLE DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY!

The definition for “launch” is: “to throw forward”.
Everything that has been on the back burner, simmering in your heart or in active preparation like a space rocket, is ready for take-off!
I sense there is a divine release, an accelerated time frame, a catapult, so I want to encourage you in this month of March to launch out into the deep and high places in destiny, purpose and assignment in obedience to the unction of the Holy Spirit.
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven!” Ecc.3:8


“Of the sons of Issachar, men who understood the times, with knowledge of what Israel should do….” 1 Cron.12:32
Prayer: Father, we ask that You give us the knowledge and understanding of what we should do in this season and the unction of the Holy Spirit to launch out in our destiny for Your glory! In Jesus’ Name!

Shalom

“Characteristics of the Emerging Elijah Company” Jesse Shamp, Nashville, TN

Dream of an Emerging Generation

I want to share prophetically about the heart of the Father for this hour!

I asked the Lord recently, “What is Your heart in this hour and what is it that You’re asking of me?” That night, the Lord gave me a dream. In the dream, my wife Amy and I were sitting on a stage in front of a large audience. There was a general of the faith and spiritual father standing behind me with a microphone and he asked me, in front of this audience, “How many men or women have raised up twelve others under their mantle?” I started to think about it, but before I could answer, he stopped me and asked, “How many men or women have raised up a generation under their mantle?” Then he looked at me and said, “That’s what you’re called to do: to raise up a generation!” Then he came to my side and laid his hands on me, and it felt like hot honey was pouring into my spirit!

I woke up from this dream overwhelmed by God’s presence. I remember thinking, “The impartation in this dream was real!” I knew that this wasn’t just for me, but a call to the Body of Christ in this hour. In this dream, I could tangibly feel the Lord’s heart for this generation. He is longing for sons and daughter to step into their destinies and callings! God is not looking just to raise up new voices and ministries, but the Lord is looking to raise up the Body of Christ, the army of God, to usher in a great harvest of souls!

“Not all intercessors are prophets, but all prophets should have the heart of an intercessor.”

We have seen great ministries and great miracle workers in the past and in the present, but what would it look like to see a generation of people moving in the power of God like none other?

Some may say this generation is too backslidden—too far gone. Let me encourage you not to simply look at this generation with the natural eye. God’s vision is always so much greater, much more far-reaching than our own. We serve a miraculous God! His eye is upon this generation, just as His eye is upon the sparrow (Matthew 10:29-31). The sparrow may seem insignificant to some, but not to the Father!

We have seen many prophets and miracle workers “graduate on” to be with the Lord. When generals graduate on, God longs to raise up fresh voices and mantles to carry on the work of the Kingdom.

The Word of God says, “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints” (Psalm 116:15). The word “precious” means costly. The blood of God’s servants is costly to Him!

Every time a soldier or a general dies on the battlefield, it is costly. We have seen the passing of so many great generals. It is upon the heart and mind of the Father to raise up others and release new mantles and anointings! God is giving fathers and mothers of the faith a heavenly mandate…an assignment to raise up this new breed!

I want to talk about what God is doing in the earth, because God is looking to raise up a company of prophets and a company of miracle workers! Will you be one of them? We so often see just a handful out of every generation. Yet, God is looking to anoint many. Not just a few, but a generation. I’m part of this generation and so are you! Below are the characteristics of this new breed God is raising up.

1. Miracle Workers with the Mantle of Miracles

The Lord told me they are miracle workers, with the mantle of miracles!

I want to give you a picture of what this new prophetic company will look like. This is what God is doing with this generation: He is raising up miracle-working prophets! What will these prophets look like? They will look like Jesus! Let’s remember that Jesus was a miracle worker. It was Jesus, at the age of thirty, who so boldly stated:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the Gospel to the poor, He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18-19 NKJV)

I want you to first understand that during the time that Jesus was baptized by the Holy Spirit, He came out of the wilderness and He began to publicly declare His ministry! Jesus proclaims His ministry, and He then goes on to compare Himself and His ministry to that of Elijah and Elisha, two prophets of the Old Testament.

“Then He said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country. But I tell you truly, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout all the land; but none of them was Elijah sent except to Zarephath, in the region of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian.'” (Luke 4:24-27 NKJV)

Jesus compares His ministry to that of these two great prophets of the Old Testament. Note that they were both miracle-working prophets!

What we will see in the coming years is an emerging generation of miracle-working prophets. They will not just be those who proclaim, but they will be those who carry the substance and evidence of Christ’s power through the mantle of healing and miracles.

There were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, but he was only sent to one! Can you imagine how many widows were in Israel during the famine? Likewise, there were many lepers in Israel during the time of Elisha, yet, he was only sent to one. (Photo via Pixabay)

Jesus so boldly stated that “no prophet is accepted in his own country.” What Jesus was saying is, “You are only sent to those that recognize that you are sent!”

Many did not recognize the mantle of miracles that rested upon Elijah and Elisha. Yet, those that did, received a blessing. It’s time that we begin to look and recognize the mantle of the prophet in this generation. We must begin to recognize those who God has sent to us!

This emerging generation, this prophetic company, will usher in the new move of God and restore the nation of America. They will be those who will shake the earth with the rod of their mouths!

2. The Pioneers

The Lord told me that they are pioneers.

Many failed to see what Jesus was carrying because it was so out of everyone’s box and was foreign to them! Those who God will raise up may look different than what we have seen in the past. They are called to raise the standard. It is a breaker anointing that they carry and others will partake of the fruit that this anointing brings.

Smith Wigglesworth and John G. Lake were both pioneers of their day; many are still partaking of the fruit of their ministries! God is releasing divine assignments for those who will be planted in nations and specific regions to sow seeds of revival, take territory, and to break new ground for the Kingdom of God!

3. Those Who Declare the Heart of the Father

The Lord told me: “They Declare the heart of the Father!”

The Lord brought the prophet Ezekiel into a vision; it was a prophetic encounter.

“The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. And He said to me, ‘Son of man, can these bones live?’ So I answered, ‘O Lord God, you know.’ Again He said to me, ‘Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, “O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God to these bones: ‘Surly I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.'”‘

“So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone. Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them.

“God is looking to raise up a company of prophets and a company of miracle workers! Will you be one of them?”

“Also He said to me, ‘Prophecy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, “Thus says the Lord God: ‘Come from the four winds, O breath, and breath on these slain, that they may live.'”‘ So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.” (Ezekiel 37:1-10 NKJV)

Prophets like Ezekiel are often misunderstood people, because they often see what others don’t see. They are visionaries. The Bible says that we prophesy according to our faith (Romans 12:6). Could our faith match Ezekiel’s? Could we believe for God to raise up an army with the same faith and anointing?

The valley of dry bones could easily, in some ways, be compared to the state of the Church in this hour. We need those who will prophesy strength, courage, and power into the Body of Christ! This army of the Lord will be raised up, but we are in need of those who prophesy and speak forth those things that are not as though they are (Romans 4:17). This is how God speaks to us, His Body.

Jesus taught His disciples to pray, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven” (Mathew 6:10). That is the central focus of the prophetic: to see restoration in all things!

Some may say “How can God use the Church in the state that it’s in?” I’m here to tell you that God doesn’t have another generation to use! He doesn’t have another Church! It is this Body, it’s this generation, it’s this army that He has chosen to use.

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9)

In the midst of a famine, the prophet Elijah saw the will of God to release rain. Can you imagine Elijah? He bent to his knees, wrapped himself in his mantle, and began to put his hands between his knees to intercede! He was interceding for the nation. In 1 Kings 18:44 (emphasis mine), Elijah’s servant said to him, “I see a cloud the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea!” Elijah had heard the sound of an abundance of rain (1 Kings 18:41) and then, it started to rain (1 Kings 18:45)!

What Elijah saw in his spirit, he began to call forth and prophesy. It was his intercession that brought the nation of Israel out of a famine. God used this prophet to restore a nation back to God!

Where are the prophets like Elijah today? Where are those who are willing to get on their knees and intercede? God is looking for those with the same spirit, the same heart as some of these prophets.

4. Those with the Heart of Daniel

The Lord told me: “They have the heart of Daniel. They have the heart of an intercessor!”

“But if they are prophets, and if the Word of the Lord is with them, let them now make intercession to the Lord of hosts.” (Jeremiah 27:18 NKJV)

Not all intercessors are prophets, but all prophets should have the heart of an intercessor. There is something about seeds of prayer and intercession that break things open in the spirit!
(Photo via Pixabay)
As I was in prayer, the Lord told me, “I’m looking for prophets like Daniel. Those with the heart of an intercessor.” God is looking for those with the heart of Daniel, those who will be moved with the Spirit of intercession and whose prayers will cause God’s glory to touch a nation!

It was Daniel’s faithfulness to God in stewarding intercession, that caused him to stand in the gate of the king (Daniel 2:49).

I was also reminded of a man by the name of Daniel Nash. He wasn’t a prophet, but he was a powerful intercessor. He was sent by God to accompany Charles Finney to co-labor with him with his ministry of revival. He would go to the town Finney was scheduled to preach in, and he would pray, fast, and travail. He would sow seeds of intercession in the ground! He was never in the spotlight, but his reward was the fruit that came from Finney’s revivals. Countless souls came to the Lord through Charles Finney’s ministry. They were an unstoppable team! The Church is in need of revivalists and prayer teams geared toward intercession.

Please hear me my friends, America needs our intersession today for the power of God to fill our Churches, for the lost to fill the altars, for awakening in this hour! Let us pray, let us press in for the destiny of this nation and nations around the world! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

SET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER UNDER GOD’S KINGDOM RULE

Beloved, God has been highlighting several things to me to share with you.

The Issachar anointing is to know the times and seasons and to know what to do.

12/12 (December 12th) was quickened to me as a sign of a Governmental shift and Apostolic fulness as we prepare for the greatest outpouring of God’s glory ever!

Let us also pray and believe God for a shift in our earthly governments – especially the US – to bring things in divine order – praying the Lord’s prayer!

I also have a burden in my spirit to keep praying for President Trump for grace and protection that there will be no impeachment.

SETTING YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER

There is a window of opportunity to get our lives in order in every respect by positioning ourselves to SEE with divine perspective from above.

As the year is drawing to an end, let us take stock of our lives: our relationship with God, family, friends, business, ministry, finances and health. 

Are we walking in alignment with God?
 1 John 3:21 – KJV
Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God, and we will receive from Him whatever we ask, because we keep His commandments and do what is pleasing in His sight.…”
 Keeping His commandments is key to walk in His blessing in every facet of our existence! (Deut.28). The opposite of blessing is the curse.
 We are in a time frame of a governmental shift, being weighed in the balance and what we sow we will reap.
  1. We are in a season of preparation – preparing the way for the Lord! We have heard that God has much in store for us, but He looks for willing hearts and pure vessels. This preparation is in the secret place of His Presence.
  2. There is much emphasis on the LIGHT – as the armor of light and to be clothed in Christ as the Light. Everything that is in the shadows of falsity, fake, deception, lies, show of godliness, etc. will be exposed in this season!  Such things as false teachings and half-truths, which is deception will be dealt with!  Calling good evil and evil good!  We have been calling on God’s divine justice to vindicate us against the thievery of the enemy.  And we also received the prophetic Word to strike the ground with prophetic declarations for victory to take back the “land” that was stolen from us in the spirit and in the natural.
  3. What is very important is that we apply the Word of God regarding our enemies:

Love your enemies:

Matt.4:43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous”.

Romans 12. 14 Bless those who persecute you. Bless and do not curse. 19 “Do not avenge yourselves, beloved, but leave room for God’s wrath. For it is written: “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay, says the Lord. On the contrary, “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink. For in so doing, you will heap burning coals on his head. Do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good”.

The thing is that everything has to come out of a heart of love.

Follow the example of Jesus!  Love Judas!  Give him all the privileges of your friends. This is grace and mercy!

Once you realize that Jesus loves the sinner, but not his sin, it sets you free to love the soul of a betrayer and really pray for his soul.

We have to come to the place of living in unconditional love, which is only possible if we forgive fully and ask the Holy Spirit to work the agape love into us

1. Increase and abound in love towards one another – 1 Thess.3:12

1 Peter 1:21: Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another fervently with a pure heart …

2. Arise! and step into your calling! Focus on what God has called you to do.  Many have deviated from that – being totally overloaded with too much responsibility and “have-to’s”, because it is the drum role of the times.  Everyone is in performance mode and focused on making money.

3. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God – He is going to deal with the money exchangers – those who merchandise the gospel. Beware! God is not mocked What you sow, you shall reap!  His house is supposed to be a house of prayer – not merchandise!

The number 12 is also a number of God’s perfect plans and destiny for our lives and an indication that we have shifted into a Kairos time for the apostolic fullness in the New Testament Church to come forth as we are stepping into the greatest glory.

Blessings,

Elsabe

“Strike the Ground!”

Many have been feeling that they are under assault of the enemy, experiencing turmoil in their surroundings and feeling dry.

 Prophets and prophetic people especially are targeted by the enemy to be derailed from their end-time call and purpose.

 God is wanting to strengthen His people with renewed inner strength for what He has prepared for us for this new era.

 Those who have the Prophet’s call on their lives are going to receive more strategic mandates – not only for individuals, but for regions and nations.

 Therefore, a greater focus is needed and greater discernment to apply revelation knowledge.

 Sometimes God gives us instructions to do prophetic acts to enforce the victory in the spirit realm, declaring the verdict over the enemy’s theft and curses.

 In the glory we will hear God’s voice, getting clear vision, strengthening and discernment to do prophetic acts.

 I heard the Lord say, “It is time to strike the ground!”. 

 Read 2 Kings 13: 14-19

 14 “The prophet Elisha was sick with a fatal disease, and as he lay dying, King Jehoash of Israel went to visit him. “My father, my father!” he exclaimed as he wept. “You have been the mighty defender of Israel!”15 “Get a bow and some arrows,” Elisha ordered him. Jehoash got them, 16 and Elisha told him to get ready to shoot. The king did so, and Elisha placed his hands on the king’s hands. 17 Then, following the prophet’s instructions, the king opened the window that faced toward Syria. “Shoot the arrow!” Elisha ordered. As soon as the king shot the arrow, the prophet exclaimed, “You are the Lord’s arrow, with which he will win victory over Syria. You will fight the Syrians in Aphek until you defeat them.”

18 Then Elisha told the king to take the other arrows and strike the ground with them. The king struck the ground three times, and then stopped. 19 This made Elisha angry, and he said to the king, “You should have struck five or six times, and then you would have won complete victory over the Syrians; but now you will defeat them only three times.”

In Psalm 18: 37-40 King David states the same principle:

 37” I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.

38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.

39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.

40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.”

 For those who have grown weary: It is time to rise up, get renewed focus and set your face like a flint to recover what the enemy has stolen, but also to step into victory.

Where the devil has taken some ground in your life, get fired up in the Spirit (strengthening yourself in your most holy faith, by praying in tongues – Jude v.20). Then, when God’s glory presence comes, do a prophetic act – as Elisha instructed King Joash to do: strike the ground as many times possible, declaring your victory. 

 We must apply the prophetic word or as Elisha said, “strike the ground”, until we completely destroy the enemy’s strongholds and curses.

 So many times, like Joash, we lack both the diligence and stamina to obtain the full promises of God. We also have to exercise discernment to follow the instructions in detail, not stopping halfway!

 Half-heartedness will not do, neither can we worry about what people think.

 If we want victory, we need to persevere in our pursuit of fulfilling God’s plans and purposes for our lives.

 I want to encourage you to rise up now and get intentional – envisioning the end-result of your victory.

 So, go for it!

Blessings,

Elsabe

 

“Occupy the Revelation God Has Given You!” Faith Marie Baczko

“Occupy the Revelation God Has Given You!” Faith Marie Baczko, Oakville, Ontario, Canada

 

In my last word, I shared about a new season I believe we were entering into on 11/11/18, where many would be leaving the wilderness warfare behind with the strength and fortitude to possess their promised lands. I would like to share some keys God has provided to enter into this new season and hold this position. The first is regarding the new wineskin.

The New Wineskin

The Lord showed me that the mind of the Body of Christ is the wineskin that must now become new to contain His new wine. We sometimes associate the new wineskin with a new Church structure or new model, however new models and structures having the capacity to contain God’s new dynamic, comes first with the renewing of the mind. This is a supernatural reformation infusing us with the ability to receive and process the new wine. Transformation can then take place as a natural progression of the outpouring of new wine—an outpouring carrying the vision and DNA for the new season, containing fresh revelations of the majesty of the exalted Christ.

The mind must be renewed and refashioned to withstand the challenges of the new season we have entered in order to rightly comprehend and process the purposes of God in it. The mind must be rewired to receive and accept a fresh spiritual dynamic intended to take us into a new dimension of God’s glory.

“It is imperative that we overcome the darkness and the flesh, and begin to occupy the revelations God has given us, and occupy and live in His Word by camping out on it until we fully believe it and it become woven into our DNA!”

Transformation into the new wineskin requires that the old has to go. The old is characterized by small mindedness, religious mindsets bound to control, un-Christlike attitudes devoid of God’s love and compassion, and irrelevant traditions no longer serving the Lord that are actually working to hinder His purposes in the new work.

“Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in His eyes.” (Rom. 12:2 The Passion Translation)

The new wineskin is a mind that possesses the capacity to change, to be transformed, to perceive and to track with the movements of God, to hold fresh revelation, released in appointed times for appointed times. “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” (Is. 43:19). We are greatly restricted in the perceiving of God’s new thing by limited thinking. Our vision must be enlarged to see the depth, the height and the width of the fullness of the God’s majestic picture in order to comprehend His strategies and partner with Him for bringing it into reality.

Vision for God’s new thing can be received by the mind that has been transformed and made pliable through brokenness, humility, love and compassion, and the deep desire to bow to the will of God. New levels and new dimensions of glory await those willing to make necessary changes. Let’s stretch our vision in this hour to see something more marvelous than we have seen previously.

Occupy The Revelation

The old wineskin cannot occupy new territory. The Lord has given much revelation—whether for my life or ministry—that has given me great joy, hope and expectation. However, with the trials of life, I sometimes find myself returning to an old place of uncertainty, once again seeking Him for direction. I was in such a place when I heard Him say, “Occupy the revelation!” With this statement came an understanding that we must not lose the anointed, supernatural seed and the divine impact to our spirit, which comes from heavenly, Holy Spirit revelation. The revelation (rather than moving us on to take spiritual ground) can become lost because of the mind’s inability or lack of capacity to hold on to it! (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)

Our soul is comprised of mind, will and emotion and is easily impacted by the trials and circumstances of life if not fiercely guarded and protected by faith in Christ—the Divine Shield that protects from all the elements of life. If the mind is not guarded it will easily be infiltrated by fear, doubt and unbelief. These are the fruits of an orphan spirit. The thief will always attempt to steal the revelation and push us off the ground God intends for us to occupy.

The Orphan Spirit Breeds:

• Insecurity that convinces you that you are not worthy and therefore don’t belong.

• Doubt and unbelief that convinces you things will never change and that you are not capable of holding it if they do!

• Fear of taking the risk to believe and therefore act, and if you do, you will be making a mistake.

• Intimidation and fear of man that says “you are not good enough” and convinces you to stay hidden.

Let’s present ourselves before the Lord and be willing to receive understanding of old negative mindsets which can hinder our perspective and our ability to hold revelation. This includes any mindsets that are limited, rigid and restricted, and unable to embrace the glorious destiny God has prepared for the lives of His people. The old wineskin is one of fear, lack and limitation. God’s intention for His people is that we receive the spirit of sonship which convinces us that we are sons and daughters of God—fully accepted in the beloved, prepared and equipped for the greatest move on Earth!

“The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by Him we cry, ‘Abba, Father.'” (Rom. 8:15 NIV)

Let’s begin to occupy the revelations God has given to us and live in His Word by camping out on it until we fully believe it and it becomes woven into our DNA! It’s time to forcefully resist the lies of the enemy, know that we are fully accepted in the Beloved and move out in the power of His might.

Decide and Declare It

How do we occupy the revelation of His Word for us? God spoke to my heart and said, “You decide!” There were times when I sought the Lord for details of His intentions for my life or the ministry He had given me, then I would get frustrated when I did not hear or could not understand His direction. I began to understand that as we grow in maturity in the stature of Christ, having our minds continually renewed, we become mothers and fathers of the faith, and God trusts us to make certain decisions. God trusts us to move in sync with Him, within His will, within the parameters of His Word and the revelations and visions He has given us for our lives. He said in His Word: “You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; so light will shine on your ways” (Job 22:28).

“The mind must be renewed and refashioned to withstand the challenges of the new season we have entered, in order to rightly comprehend and process the purposes of God in it.”

The Greek word for ways is Derek, and it means: “a road, a course of life or mode of action.” God has supplied us with authority in His Word to decide on the course of our lives and the actions we will take based on our agreement with His will. He has given us the power to frame our lives within His Word, just as He framed the worlds with His Word at creation and created the visible with the invisible substance of faith (Heb. 11:3). God has left room for us to decide in the paths of our destiny, in order to fulfill the Scripture, “Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart” (Ps. 37:4).

Our decision to agree with the heavenly vision moves us onto new spiritual ground that releases God’s favor and opens new doors of opportunity. Then as we make the decision to step out on to new paths, standing on the Word of God and decreeing and declaring His truth, the vision is given the potential to become reality.

Faith That Sees

In applying this to faith, when a revelation is received from God and is observed by faith and seen in vision, if it is believed and called forth into reality—the invisible becomes visible. By faith we call forth the things that are not as though they are. Faith sees with spiritual eyes and nurtures the vision with God-given imagination; the vision takes hold of the person and because of faith they will not let go until it has come forth.

The vision is conceived on the inside by observing it in spirit and becomes established by declaration of faith words. Our internal capacity to conceive must increase, and the wineskin of the mind refashioned to contain the largeness of God’s revelation. We hold on to it by faith and occupy the revelation by giving it a place of prominence in our hearts. The battle to give birth is a decision to fight for what we believe. Begin to SEE the door to opening to your opportunity, visualize it, embrace it and declare it!

“By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.” (Heb. 11:11)

After recently reading this passage, my spirit became very stirred as I saw all these principles come together powerfully in Sarah—I saw something marvelous that I had not seen before. Firstly, the miracle came forth by faith—Sarah believed! Secondly, where did her faith come from? She counted Him faithful who had promised. Sarah had experienced the faithfulness of God in her life on many occasions. The word for faith used in this Scripture is pistis and means: conviction of the truthfulness of God. Sarah received strength to conceive. The Greek word for strength is Dunamis which means: miraculous, supernatural power. (Photo via Unsplash)

Sarah’s mind was renewed by faith in God—she saw, she believed, she trusted, thereby establishing a foundation of faith for all future generations. Sarah decided, she made the decision to act on the promise that marked out the course of her life. She occupied the revelation and nurtured it and brought forth a child in old age! Sarah’s faith released the explosive, miraculous, Dunamis power of God to break forth in her body and in her life.

I encourage you to begin to see and observe God’s vision for your life. Occupy the revelations He has given you—hold on to them. Decide in agreement with God, then frame the future within those parameters with His Word. God has given us partnership and sonship.

He’s saying: “Decide! Tell Me what is your heart’s desire! Move out within the parameters of your life based on what I have given you in vision. You have the mind of Christ. Decide, declare it and it will be established, and light will shine on the course you have taken!” (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Strategy to Overcome the devices of the serpent.

 

 

We are in a very important time frame right at the beginning of a new year (5779) full of promises of new birthings, fulness and fruitfulness.

We need to be watchful and alert, for the enemy is sly and devious in his ways and will try to find openings in our hedge to creep in on areas where we are vulnerable (1 Peter 5:8) in order to steal kill and destroy, but also to distract.  Remember, this is the other side of the letter “Tet” in the picture of the twisted serpent in the number 9.

As we dwell in His Presence, we find our shelter and protection under the wings of the Most High where no devil can touch us (Psalm 91).

This is not a place where we can “in” and “out”, but a place to abide in continuously.

Let us ask the Lord to let His light shine on places where we are vulnerable so that we can take our stand in those areas. We are to be clothed in light to withstand the enemy, putting our trust in the Lord of hosts! He is our victory.

At the same time, we are praying for discernment to identify our enemy and not be caught by his deception.

Remember that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood.

I recently woke up from in dream in which I clearly received insight into four strategies by which the Python Spirit will try to get a grip on you.

  1. Make contact by catching you by surprise – causing you to lose focus and balance.
  2. Charming, bewitching, luring you to come along with his plans – drawing on your emotions, playing on your feelings.
  3. Religious flattery with false authority.
  4. Putting subtle pressure on you to comply – even with a religious cloak – show of godliness – making a demand on your being a Christian to get his way.

Many are feeling overwhelmed by the demands of life, having too much on your plate, sudden intimidations of the enemy that cause fear, stress, etc.  His tactic is to attack on many fronts, causing pile-ups to make you feel as if the life is being sucked out of you.
This is clearly the attack of the Python spirit.

See with New Perspective from a Place of Worship: 
*Your true identity and your future which He has planned for you.
*Leave situations that need desperate intervention of the Lord into His hands – trusting Him fully to invade those areas like relationships with His glory.
* Discerning the enemy’s strategies by exercising your spiritual senses, taking authority over it.  Whenever you give in to pressure by reacting to it, you empower it to rule over you. 

I was worshiping the Lord in the beauty of Holiness and suddenly became so aware of His faithfulness to bring His promises to pass in your lives.
While focusing on His faithfulness, I suddenly realized that His Promises are actually His desires for our lives – which are so much better than our own ideas of how things should be.
We often want to figure out solutions for ourselves – taking
things into our own hands, but because that is opposite to
God’s counsel, it causes us to get stressed and overwhelmed.

Instead: Here are five keys to overcome:

  1. Focus back in worship on His FAITHFULNESS to

1. Bring His glorious promises to pass in our lives                                                                 2. Order our steps aright.                                                                                                                  3. To make the crooked places straight, bring the mountains down and fill    up the low places                                                                                                                                          4. To provide in all our needs                                                                                                            5. To bring us into the fulness of our inheritance in Christ                             SHORTLY TO BLESS US WITH EVERY GOOD THING!                                                That is who He is – only having the best in store for us.

  1. TRUST and DEPENDENCE!

Release your anxieties, fears, concerns, worries and put your TRUST in HIS FAITHFULNESS.

  1. NOW SING YOUR PRAISES in tongues and in your own language – OF ADORATION TO HIM BEING A LOVING FAITHFUL FATHER.

Praise Him for His mercy and lovingkindness that puts the enemy to flight! (2 Chron.20:22)
Psalm 149: With the high praises of God in your mouth and the two-edged sword in your hand you will bind the enemy’s kings with chains and his princes with iron fetters.

          D. EXPECT God’s goodness and grace to give you victory and blessings beyond your wildest imagination in every area of your life – because of His faithfulness!

E.  PUT ON THE ARMOR OF LIGHT and get your SWORD sharpened!

Ephesians 6:10-13 (KJV)
10” Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

In view of this Scripture, guard your heart to not start judging people or pointing the finger, or getting offended! Your fight is against the devil and his forces!  But rest assured, Jesus has already won the victory.  You just have to take authority over the enemy and not be moved by his schemes to invade your mind and shake you emotionally.

As we ask the Lord to protect us, He will show us the strategies of the enemy in advance – even in our dreams, so that we are forewarned and forearmed!

Bless the Name of the Lord who is mighty to save and protect!  Hallelujah!

Blessings of Victory and emotional freedom

POSITIONING FOR THE HEBRAIC YEAR 5779

As we are speeding forth to the Hebraic New Year 5779, starting on September 9th (09/09/2018) at sundown, there is a load of prophetic significance to be understood in order to tap into all the hidden treasures of God’s wisdom.

“And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do”

(I Chronicles 12:32).

From 2010 to 2019 (the year’s 5770 to 5779) is focused on the significance of the last two digits “70”.  All these ”70’s” through this decade signify the Hebrew word “AYIN.” 

   “Ayin” signifies an eye…or insight or seeing or perceiving with God’s perspective. It is a word for God’s revelation by the Spirit of wisdom and understanding to “see”. Some writers describe it as “fountain”…as in a fountain of wisdom.

We will also look into the symbolic meaning of the number 9 and the Hebrew Word Talet.

It is a most exciting time to tap into the way God sees. No wonder that the “seer”-anointing is increasing – especially in those that are seeking the Lord’s perspective.

In the process our minds have to be renewed from darkness to light – to focus on the Lord to have the mind of Christ by what He reveals in the secret place of intimacy.

 In the following 21 days until Rosh Hosanna (Hebraic New Year), we are going to focus on the renewal of our minds to access that which God has laid up for us in the realm of prophetic revelation.

You will be positioned and strengthened to:

  • Understand the significance of the Hebrew Year 5779 and to take action accordingly
  • Be renewed in the spirit of your mind by a new way of seeing from God’s perspective
  • See with enlightened eyes of understanding
  • Have all your senses extended into the supernatural
  • Get divine revelation, insight, wisdom and understanding to apply to every situation
  • Increase in Prophetic flow
  • Take authority over the enemy when you see the snake in the grass
  • Grow in the fruit of the Spirit
  • Grow in the Gifts of the Spirit
  • Grow in the Character of Christ – into maturity to reign with Him in the authority of the Spirit and the Word
  • Saying “Amen” to God’s destiny for your life as you receive understanding of it.
