The Blood and the Cross

I sense that the Lord is putting a fresh emphasis on the importance of the centrality of the cross and the power of His precious Blood!

After sharing in an evening meeting about the glorious power of the Blood of Jesus that wrought the victory for us on the Cross, the Holy Spirit was revelating to me right through the night that many of God’s people are living in bondage and under oppression of the enemy simply because they do not have a revelation of what Jesus has done for us on the cross.

The Lord is still the same – yesterday, today and forever.  He is a miracle-working God, who will give us the victory in every situation if we simply believe and trust Him!

All our needs have been met at Calvary’s Cross through the price that Jesus Christ paid with His precious blood, whether it be forgiveness for our sins, healing, deliverance, comfort or anything else. He shed His blood for our griefs and our sorrows, our transgressions, iniquities and every sickness and disease that can be named.

He blotted out the handwriting of ordinances against us and nailed it to the cross, having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them.  In Christ we have wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. The Blood of Jesus even cleanses our consciences from dead works of the past.  But the best part is that the Blood of Jesus rent the veil so that we have free entrance into His Presence in the glory!  Hallelujah!

“Surely he hath borne our griefs,

and carried our sorrows:

yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

But he was wounded for our transgressions,

He was bruised for our iniquities:

the chastisement of our peace was upon Him;

and with His stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:4-5

The enemy is blinding the eyes of many through fear so that they cannot SEE what the Lord has accomplished for them by His shed Blood. Therefore many keep on struggling and reasoning, trying to surrender over and over, but through fear they are kept under oppression of the devil.  That is why few ever live the abundant life that Jesus so dearly paid for.

What a grief this must be to the Holy Spirit! 

We need to come to come and stand still at Calvary and LOOK again to see what the Lord has done for us, asking the Lord to give us the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation and enlightened eyes of our understanding to grasp the power of the Cross and the Blood!  He made full provision for our every need so that we can walk in peace and live the abundant life in spite of circumstances around us.

Why would we walk under oppression of the enemy? Jesus paid with His precious Blood for our freedom and liberty in the Spirit and fullness of joy in His Presence!

It is at the foot of the cross that we can simply surrender our own wisdom and control, laying down our hurts, our sorrows, our despair, our fears, stress and worries and especially the reasoning of our minds to receive the liberty that He paid for with His blood.

The struggle of man to come to the cross, giving himself to the Lord as a burnt offering, is a contest between the wisdom of man (the reasoning of self) and the Wisdom of God; between the flesh and the life in the Spirit (living from the Breath of God – the CREATIVE WORD).

“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.” 1 Cor. 3:19

We have to come to the cross to lay our self-life down, once and for all and let the Blood of Jesus wash our past away before we can pass over death into the resurrection life of the Holy Spirit and have permanent victory.

We want to do a quick job of surrender, because we have so much to do, but the characteristics of the Adamic nature need to be buried in the tomb together with a deep reckoning with the forces of self where darkness can get a foothold (Rom.6:11).  Then only can we rise up in the third- day anointing of the resurrection power of the Spirit, knowing our identity and authority in Christ (seated together with Him in heavenly places in ascension) stepping into the “seemingly” impossible of the supernatural lifestyle, where the supernatural will become natural by His power working through us so that His Kingdom can be established and His Name be glorified.

The DAILY taking up of the Cross to follow Jesus

After our initial surrender, we need to come to the cross daily in a fresh surrender of any new issues that may arise (to rule in the mind, will and emotions) and learn to live the surrendered life-style of REST in Him and His Almighty power, abiding in the secret place of His Presence under the shadow of His wings.

THE CROSS IS A PLACE TO LAY DOWN OUR BURDENS, BUT ALSO THE PLACE OF GOD’S WISDOM AND POWER!  Only when we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, will we be exalted!

When the Father of glory graces us with the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the knowledge of the Christ, we suddenly understand that His ways are not our ways.  His humility brought Him the highest honor, His Servanthood made Him great, His lowliness and meekness was a state of His heart, not a show.  The Wisdom of God is foolishness with men.  The way “up” in the Kingdom is “down” where we bow low in true surrender of our will to His Lordship in every area of our lives.


When we receive the enlightened eyes of our understanding to see that His desire for us is to be transformed into His image, we will abhor the audacity of self and human wisdom with self-power.

Many want to be “used” by the Lord for the greater works, but God tests the hearts for the true motives thereof.  He will not compete with us for the glory, so those who want to be seen and heard and complimented will stay on the shelf until they have become willing to be a continual burnt offering “That no flesh should glory in His Presence” (1 Cor. 1:29).


“Then, according as it is written, “He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord” – 1 Cor.1:31 

Let us come into the bow of true worship so that His Presence can manifest the miracles of salvation, healing and deliverance, while we stand in awe of adoration before His majesty and power and goodness and grace!

Let the Name of the Lord be magnified!  Hallelujah!

Now let’s pray:

Father, Your will be done – not mine!  I hand over the reigns to You in every situation and circumstance of my life and I put my trust in You!  As You have pre-ordained it in heaven for my life, so let it be – so that Your Name is glorified, and Your Kingdom be made manifest in my life.

Show me the way through Your Word and Your Spirit that I can walk in it to please You and deliver me from every evil assignment.

Lord, and help me to walk before you in righteousness with a pure heart so that I can be a true worshiper to worship You in Spirit and in Truth  – in Jesus’ Name.



Let’s take communion as often as possible, remembering the finished work on the Cross, drinking the cup of the Covenant, partaking and celebrating His life.  Then plead the blood over yourself, your family, your ministry and business, your finances and everything else and WORSHIP HIM!

“For the Life of the flesh is in the Blood” – Lev.17:11


Let us find our safety in the Chamber of His Presence!





WHAT A BLESSED PEOPLE WE ARE – THOSE WHO HAVE RECEIVED THE SAVING GRACE OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST through His shed blood on the cross of Calvary!  We have been taken out of darkness and have been brought into His glorious light and resurrection life and on top of that we have received all the spiritual blessings in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus.

Let’s remind ourselves today that we haven’t received this grace in vain, but that we are sent into the world as ambassadors of the Kingdom of  heaven to spread the Good Tidings of the Gospel for His glory.





Blessings to you all



“You are on the brink of GREAT CHANGE.  Yes, the suddenly will come, but you are now alerted, so it won’t take you by surprise.  Get your affairs in order.”

When the Lord gives us the prophetic Word of change, GREAT CHANGE, our mind can run into a thousand directions to try and figure out what He has in store for us.  This will never bring the desired result, but if we position ourselves to hear what He is saying, we will hear the instructions – “line upon line, precept upon precept…” So, to be ready for the GREAT CHANGE which will happen in a suddenly, we need to stay in constant watchfulness to heed His smallest instruction and make sure that our affairs are in order.  This relates to everything in our lives, family, ministries, relationships, finances, paperwork, etc.  So often we can be slothful in taking care of the nitty-gritty little things, but this is the time to simplify and to be ordered.

“You are in GREAT CHANGE, but remember it will be GOOD!” 

When we know our God, knowing that He has only planned good for us, to give us a future and a hope, there is a sense of excitement in the “waiting” and we stand on alert to be ready for His move.

“I am preparing your hearts in ways you do not even know of, but you will be found in readiness.”

Here we get a cue regarding the areas that the Lord is interested in above all, namely our hearts attitudes, purity and focus.

Let us make sure that there is no baggage that we are carrying mentally or emotionally, with no past regrets or unresolved issues.  We cannot move forward while looking back and like the Apostle Paul, we need to leave behind the old and stretch ourselves forward to reach the mark for the prize of the upward call in Christ Jesus.

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. (Phil. .3:13-15)

PREPARE, PREPARE, PREPARE.  I WILL OPEN DOORS THAT NO MAN CAN OPEN and give you throughway in spite of “snakes”.

I had a sense in my spirit that many that have been preparing, will be sent into uncharted areas for a mass harvest of souls……………..


The day after I received this Word, the following was posted by Theresa Phillips and gives us a clearer picture of the same Word.

Theresa Phillips:
The Book is Open and the Page Has Been Turned – Great Change is Coming!

Theresa PhillipsI was standing on the platform in service; the realm of the Presence was intensifying. I was listening to the worship leader, and I was harmonizing with him when, suddenly, I was keenly aware of a Presence that just happened to be standing next to me. I could feel the heat of breath upon me. I quickly turned my head to see.

I began to sing with all my hear – He was near. I knew the realm of worship was going higher. Then I stopped, and I heard an ancient book open and I heard the turning of a page. I could actually smell the paper; it was old, ancient; I felt like it was from another time.

I began to prophesy that a Presence was near me and a book was open and the Presence was turning a page in time. Yes, a fresh page was turning; a new chapter for the Church had begun! It is corporate, and it is intimate at the same time… I was lost in this Presence.

When the service had ended, a lady came to me and said, “I flew in, and I asked God to tell me a page had been turned, a new chapter in my life.” I was overwhelmed by this and I was honored our Lord had heard her. But somehow I knew it was not finished. After days of sensing this dear, powerful Presence, I decided I would go back to that platform. I stood in the same spot, and I could feel that lingering Presence. This time, I looked again. I allowed my senses to experience whatever they needed to. I had to know.

I waited, then I saw a being dressed in a suit and tie; He had on a businessman’s hat. He spoke to me and said, “I am about our Father’s business; I am here to bring change. A good change, a Great Change. The page has been turned, and the book has been written since before time. And now the page has been turned.”

Great Change is Coming

A new day, a new season, a new time has been released upon the Church, and many will begin to declare the moments of GREAT CHANGE! Immediately, I went into worship and I could sense He was drawing nearer and nearer. I was sure there was more, so I just loved Jesus, pressing into the Presence of the Kingdom. “More Lord! More Lord!” I cried in my heart, yet I could not utter a word. Without delay, He spoke to my heart with such lovingkindness. All I wanted was to hear, to know.

Psalm 63:3 Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You.

Then He began to speak more: “Great change is coming. I am about to change the course of history. The Church is about to receive her King.” We began to sing the Christmas carol, “Let earth receive her King. Let every heart prepare Him room, let Heaven and nature sing, let…”

Then all was still, and He spoke again: “I have awakened My love with a nudge; I am whispering now into the ears of My Bride. Get ready, for many are about to release new devotional books, bright paintings, exuberant dance, fresh revelations from My throne room, and a new sound will be heard. I will have new notes played on old instruments. Get out that old guitar…”

I was thinking, as I heard this, I have heard all this before (my flesh was active); “Pour out Your spirit upon all flesh, Lord; on me”… when again, without delay, He spoke with clarity, “Theresa, this is not like the former; it is the latter, and many will see, not just a few, but many will see.” “See what, Lord?” I cried. “Many will see the tangible glory that I have to release to the Body. I am releasing new glory, fresh signs and wonders, and you will receive it!”

O, how I began to cry in my spirit, “I am groaning with the earth to see this manifestation!”

“Help me, Lord! What shall we see?” I asked. I felt like I was so small and childlike. “You will see many of the angelic guard enter the quadrangle of My Palace (a courtyard surrounded by a building or several buildings). This angelic guard will release directive for a new resurgence of soul winning.”

Hebrews 1:13-14 (KJV) But to which of the angels said He at any time, “Sit on My right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?” Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Inside of my heart I felt a leaping and a shouting. I was overcome with great joy. All I could do from that moment was ask and ask and ask for the hearts of men to be open and to see the harvest ready. Teach me again what You want me to know! Then He spoke loudly, clearly with confidence, “Theresa, I am praying for My Church…it shall win and not fail.”

Luke 22:32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

I cried aloud, “Strengthen me, O Lord!” I cried, “Strengthen me…” when suddenly, I began to weep, “Souls, dear Lord, souls.” I knew then that a change had come and that His Presence is here to help us. He gives us strength, courage, grace, and conviction. I was thrilled a page had been turned and a fresh outpouring has begun. It was confirmed by one lady who had asked God to do this. How precious! I was also reminded this was not new to God; it was just fresh. How wonderful!

Thoughts From the Word

Here are some verses to think upon:

Psalm 20:2 Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion.

2 Timothy 4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

I felt like the woman in Song of Solomon who cried in the streets, “Have you seen Him? Seen the one I love?”

Song of Solomon 3:3 The watchmen found me as they made their rounds in the city. “Have you seen the one my heart loves?”

Selah… Selah…

Torn Page Miraculously Mended

The Testimony of my first miracle at the age of nine  – by Elsabe Briers

From the age of three, my mother put me in Sunday School and I was taught to memorize the Scriptures.  Every night, before going to bed, I would read a passage out of the Bible.  On this particular night, at the age of nine years,  I was reading out of my father’s Bible, and suddenly a page got hooked by my finger and was torn right through the middle, hanging on a thread.  I was fearful that I would get a spanking for this and fervently prayed to my heavenly Father in the Name of Jesus that He would mend the page.  In the morning, when I inspected the Bible, I was overjoyed to find that the page was perfectly whole.  I still have this Bible today.

I believe that by God’s grace my faith  in God’s great miracle power was truly established at this young age, so  that I never doubted that He can do all things – if only we believe.

GOD SEEKS           WORSHIPPERS!It is amazing how easily we can miss the essentials.   The essential desire of God is to have WORSHIPERS, who will WORSHIP HIM in spirit and in truth – not as a ritual, but in the intimacy of love for Him.

“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him.  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

We are in a time where God wants to communicate with us through the SOUND of worship.  Our ears need to be trained to listen for the sound that the Spirit releases while we worship so that we will know exactly what God’s heart is for us in that time frame and for those around us.  Sound can be interpreted prophetically if we lean into the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation with an inclined ear.  When you receive the impartation of that “now”-sound in your spirit, it brings ENLARGEMENT and EXPANSION, HEALING, DELIVERANCE, VISION and EMPOWERMENT.  New places in the spirit realm are broken into because His Grace and Love tear the veils of the law over our hearts.

Worshiper, be totally yielded to the Holy Spirit to do what He wants in you and then receive the impartation of His deposits to release it in turn to others who need it.


God brought the people out of Egypt into the desert to worship Him.   The desert is actually the place of our opportunity to sing a new song of faith to Him.  All of heaven opens up over our circumstances when we simply put our trust in God and worship Him for his mercy and loving-kindness (like Jehoshaphat in II Chron.20).  The keys are total trust and dependence on Him alone.  When He finds that loyalty of worshiping hearts, unified in one accord, He actively works on our behalf (the battle being the Lord’s) and we will walk away with the spoils.

Is. 64:4-6 holds three important keys for breakthrough while you WAIT on Him:  Will you rejoice?  Will you stay in righteousness? Will you remind yourself of His goodness and grace, remembering Him in His ways?

For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for Him.  Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those that remember thee in thy ways.” – Is.64: 4-6

Be encouraged to know that God will never leave us or forsake us, but He is watching our hearts to see whether we will keep worshiping Him in full faith, or murmur, complain, finding our solace in a golden calf of idolatry while the promise is tarrying.

The sooner we learn to SING songs of adoration to Him in all circumstances, pursuing intimate encounters with Him, the sooner we will see the victory.  Then, coming out of the desert places, we will lean on our Beloved, fully trusting in His faithfulness and the security of His love.

New Wineskin of Love to contain the New Wine

There are depths in the river of God yet to be discovered.   It is a river of Love and as we get soaked and saturated in His Love, fresh anointing comes in worship!  Here our wineskins are exchanged for wineskins of love and mercy – in order to not only contain the new wine impartation of the Holy Spirit, but in order to expand and be stretched to accommodate increase so that we can pour it out.

Rooted and grounded in His Love

Many are making demands on others for love and experience rejection when they do not receive what they expect, all because they have not discovered the wonders of God’s all-encompassing love and their roots have nothing to draw their sustenance from.  The more time we spend in the chambers of His Love, the more we will experience the security of His Love.

“I am my beloved’s and His desire is for me.” -Song of Solomon 7:10


TAPPING INTO THE LOVE-HEART OF GOD through deep worship, we are about to discover WONDERS of His Love untold and never experienced before.

Recently, during worship I suddenly experienced the Father’s arms of love around me as the Holy Spirit was drawing me to come deeper in worship than ever before.  While the saxophone was playing I could hear in the spirit that the depth of the water was being “sounded” with the lead line of the Truth.  The Holy Spirit was encouraging me to go deeper and deeper in the river of His Presence with the “knowing” that the Father’s everlasting arms were under me and His love was “escorting” me into deeper discoveries of revelation of Himself.  The more you abandon yourself to the currents of the glory river of the Holy Spirit, He will take you where you haven’t gone before to be deeply intertwined with Him in union-communion, your roots going deeper and deeper into His woundrous Love, while your spirit can soar higher and higher with Him in the heavenlies.

It is a place where the veils and masks of self-preservation, hypocrisy, legalism, pretense, pride, distrust, suspicion, false humility, etc. are coming off through exposure to the Light and we can look into His glory with unveiled faces – being transformed from one degree of glory to the next – becoming transparent in the glory, filled with His Light – to shine it into the world.


In the silent knowing that “He is God” (Ps.46: 10), a song starts reverberating on the inside in our spirit man. It is the song of Love and adoration, which is most precious to our Lord.  It is silent to the human ear, but heard in the heavenlies, joining the choirs of the heavenly beings in total exaltation of our Beloved.  This becomes a burning flame of love on the inside, feasting on the oil of His Presence with an exceeding joy, full of glory!

“Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord” -Eph. 5:19





. While soaking in awesome WORSHIP at an END-TIME HANDMAIDENS & SERVANTS Mini-Convention in Jacksonville, Florida, I realized that the Holy Spirit is ready to release particular IMPARTATIONS to us for this hour that we need to absorb in our spirit in order to be equipped for our individual Kingdom assignments.As we become quiet before the Lord in Worship,  prayerfully meditating on the “sound” that He is “sounding” into the depths of our being, it will ENLIGHTEN our heart’s eyes to SEE with clarity what He is doing and saying.This enlightenment will bring transformation into more of the glory of His image and empower us to bring His glory everywhere we go to establish His Kingdom.

We need to be FULLY ALERT,  not only to FULLY RECEIVE, but to FULLY MAINTAIN that which He is imparting into our spirit man as LIVING SUBSTANCE to draw from and in turn impart to others


Since November 2011 we have transitioned into a time of DIVINE RESTORATION.

Prayers that have been going up for souls over many years, are being answered and people’s lives are being brought into alignment with God’s Kingdom purposes.

Stay diligent in releasing this Divine Decree Prophetically over every facet of your lives, families, relationships, ministries, health, finances.

Like David, we will recover all that the enemy has stolen if we do not let up or become slack.

“Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.” Is.35:3/Heb.12:12

Let us encourage each other and also be strengthened by this Word of the Lord to pray and release His divine decree UNTIL we see the manifestation thereof.



I had a dream and saw a bread in the oven



Then these words came clearly:


Selah!  Pause, lift up and Praise His glorious Name!

John 4: 23  “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Hm.”

Worshiper Army


Army of Worshipers

When the Scriptures refer to the “heavenly host,” we usually think of “choirs of angels.” The word “host” in the Bible meant “army” (Josh. 5:13-14). It is an important truth: the hosts of Heaven are worshiping armies. Indeed, no one can do warfare who is not first a worshiper of God. Continue reading “Worshiper Army”


Agape Life Ministries
As soon as we realize that “without Him we can do nothing”, we have the opportunity to come to the end of stress, anxiety, striving and toiling by simply handing over every care, situation or issue into the hands of the One who cares for us. (Matt.11: 28; 1 Pet.5: 7)


Actually God is waiting for us to come to that point of laying down our own wisdom and self-power so that He can be gracious over us. (Is.30: 18)


“For he that is entered into his rest hath himself also rested from his works, as God did from His.” (Heb.4: 10)


Come to think of it, this place of entering His rest is the testing point of faith, for many, through unbelief, couldn’t enter into His rest (Heb.4: 2-3). Man in his own wisdom still wants to prove that his own “works” will bring the desired results.  So what is this “rest” other than TO BELIEVE GOD!   All things are possible for those who believe that God can do what seems impossible for man’s finite mind to comprehend or to “work out”.  It spells the end of the self-life and the beginning of life in the Presence.  “If you lose your life, you shall find it.” This paradox results in abundance of His power!

“Be still and know that I am God” holds the secret.  It is in the quiet of His Presence that we can HEAR His still small voice to receive the instruction to do do the works which He has beforehand pre-ordained for us to walk in. These “works” are the will of the Father for our lives and are easy, without striving and strain and stress, full of joy!

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. (Eph.2:10)


This calls for a renewing in the spirit of our minds, where we see from His perspective with eagle eyes.  All the senses of perception are extended into the realm of the Spirit.  We see, hear, touch, taste and feel in the naturalness of life in His Presence.


We need to ask the Father of glory to give us enlightened eyes of our understanding through the spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in order to know the Christ and our position, identity and inheritance IN HIM. Then we simply do what we see our Father doing (in the secret place of His Presence), saying only what we hear Him saying – just as Jesus set the example for us.  It is an easy yoke and a light burden to simply do His will, following His instructions in His Wisdom by the power of the Holy Spirit.  And then God will get all the glory, for man’s sweat will not be on it!


These secrets are to be found in the Chambers of His Presence.

“Draw me, we will run after you: the king has brought me into his chambers: we will be glad and rejoice in you, we will remember your love more than wine: the upright love you.”  (Song of Solomon 1:4)

The Holy Spirit has been drawing us with cords of love, so that we couldn’t respond in any other way than to run after Him, like a deer pants after the water (Ps.42: 1).  Those, the King has brought into the intimacy of His chambers where we can simply enjoy His Presence, rejoicing in His perfect provision of Love where we can dwell forever to behold the beauty of His holiness. When we behold His glory, we are transformed and He puts His counsel in our hearts to execute in the earthly realm as it is in heaven.


He is looking for those whose eyes are single – dwelling in the light (Matt.6: 29).


In John 17 Jesus prayed to the Father “to make us one” and to bring us where He is.




These “chambers of His Presence” denote a state of intimate relationship and of safety and protection – a hiding place in times of trouble and affliction and those who have come to dwell here, will be sheltered under the shadow of His wings where no evil will befall them or come near them (Ps. 91).


In Ps 27 we find the same promise of being hidden in His “pavilion”, in the secret place of His tabernacle in the time of trouble.  On top of that He will set us “high” upon the rock of Christ (above our enemies) and we will forever sing songs of rejoicing as the offering of our lips to Him.

“One thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord,
And to inquire in His temple.
 For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
in the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock.

 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me;
Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.”


In Psalms 31 the Psalmist states that the Presence of the Lord is a shelter, safe from scheming enemies, a hiding place, where we are concealed from the strife of tongues.  Someone prayed so beautifully, “ Lord, take us behind the veil where we cannot hear the voice of the enemy, but only Your voice.”


v.20-23:  “How great is your goodness, Lord,

stored up for those who fear you.

You display it for those who trust you,

in the sight of the children of Adam.

You hide them in the shelter of your presence,

safe from scheming enemies.

You conceal them in your tent,

away from the strife of tongues.

Blessed be the LORD,

marvelously he showed to me

His mercy in a fortified city.”


In His Presence we find sweet communion-union with the Bridegroom in the chambers of His love.  Here we see that is it a place of rest in His Presence, a place of feasting at His banqueting table of love while our enemies can only look on, but not touch us because His Presence is a fortified city where He shows us His mercy (Ps.23), a temple not made with hands.


In His Presence is fullness of joy and by the counsel found there we exercise Kingdom dominion, having the victory in Him in every situation, enjoying the abundant life in the Spirit in a joy exceedingly and full of glory, forever singing new songs of blessing and glory and honor to Him.


This is the ascended lifestyle, seated together with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of the Father, being made kings and priests unto our God in the chambers of love-worship.


How great is our God, who has made such provision for us!  Hallelujah!




. February 2012 has truly been a month of God’s manifest glory – seeing His Kingdom come, His will be done as it is in heaven, so on the earth and we give HIM ALL THE GLORY DUE HIS WONDERFUL NAME!During the 12 day fast we saw so many miracles of physical and emotional healings and many deliverances.  Many lives were changed in the glory of His Presence (as His Word promises) and there is an ongoing hunger and thirst for more of the Lord!
HALLELUJAH!Our trip to Puerto Rico was pure joy and a  “SEE WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE!”Three of our meetings we  in Puerto Rico were held at Comunidad Cristiana en Arecibo, a powerful Church, with Pastor Edwin Duran together with his brother, Pastor Efren Duran.
Our team had the privilege to minister to different segments of the Church.Leaders of five different churches in Arecibo attended the meeting for the Intercessors and Dancers and the Presence of the Lord came so strong that I could hardly stand.

Sara, our dancer, danced a beautiful dance called “Behind the Veil” and some received visions (which they shared afterwards).

The Holy Spirit ministered with Words of Knowledge, healing and deliverance and we were all changed.

Pastors Nicolas and Misty Khoury ministered breakthrough to the Youth and they were greatly impacted.

On Friday night Pastor Nicolas and I “tag-preached” and I saw again how the Prophetic Word brings breakthrough:

The night before we left Florida, I received a vision and a Prophetic Word for Puerto Rico:
I saw a huge drop of water coming down from heaven, splashing on dry ground and immediately after, a soft rain started pouring.

The Lord conveyed to me that as soon as the Prophetic Word that He would give me would be released, the rain would come.
This particular Word was that the Holy Spirit was going to be poured out in a flow of prophetic revelatory knowledge, dreams and visions (much like Joel 2).

Pastor Nicolas saw a dry tunnel and suddenly water came rushing through from the back and broke trhough the tunnel.

As soon as these Visions and Words were released, the breakthrough came!

Many were healed and delivered and received breakthrough of mindset into their true identity in Christ!

Sunday’s meeting was really divinely orchestrated as we ministered in Moravis at the Church of Pastor Doris Ortiz.  Prophetically the Lord showed me that this church was like a lampstand, a city on a hill, shining a bright light into the nations.  They have recently “seeded” many of their spiritual offspring into different regions of America and this was a Word of Breakthrough for them.

During the message the Holy Spirit took us in a totally different direction than anticipated by a “Word-play” on a Spanish Word “camera” (chamber), and we were all blessed by the revelation through His message. Many were healed and there was especially one very strong deliverance of a young woman who has been kept in bondage of terrifying fear for years.

We are all so privileged to be part of the Lord’s assignments in the nations and we thank each one of you for who have been covering us with your prayers and financial support, preparing the way for the Lord.  Together we are His team, His body, doing His works.


Thank You Father, Son and Holy Spirit for Your amazing grace!


We are continuing our Leadership Training Classes, “DEEPER” at Cayac Church in Fort Pierce.

Parousia literally means “being Present” – implying the walking, talking, being in “oneness” with Him – IN HIS TANGIBLE PRESENCE – INTERTWINED WITH HIM – Hidden in Him!

The Holy Spirit is highlighting the importance and power of the Presence of the Lord. Without His Presence, there is no power and as we grow hunger and thirst after Him, He will reveal Himself to us in ever-increasing “Presencing”.

The time has come where the Lord is calling us to the “Parousia”, the practicing of His Presence – without ceasing.

The Holy Spirit wants us to prepare an atmosphere for His Person to come.


1. He takes note of those who fear Him and reverence His Name

In the Book of Malachi we read that when people fear the Lord and think upon His name, conversing often about Him, He takes so much pleasure in it that it is written in a Book of Remembrance.

“Then they that feared the LORD spoke often one to another:

and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance

was written before Him for them that feared the LORD,

and that thought upon His name.” (Mal.3:16)

For those who fear His Name, He arises as the Sun of Righteousness in His manifest healing power.

“But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise

with healing in his wings; and you shall go forth,

and grow up like calves of the stall.” (Mal.4:2)

When our conversations are conducted in the fear of the Lord, honoring Him and who He is, it invites His Presence, just like when the two men were conversing about the Lord on their way to Emmaus and He came. Afterwards they were remembering how their hearts were burning within them when He expounded the Scriptures to them.

2. He wants to be wanted and pursued in revelation of Himself as the Living Word

When the resurrected Jesus wanted to go further on His way (even though they didn’t know it was Him, they insisted that He should stay and sup with them, because their hearts were burning with desire to understand the Word and that is what He desires, namely that we would insist that He would linger because of our hungering after the revelation knowledge of the Word.

The eyes of our understanding will likewise be opened to “know” Him in His resurrection when He breaks the bread of revelation to us and serves us the new wine of the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding.

The “Parousia” prepares a way for the Manifest Presence of the Lord.

3. He responds to our OBEDIENCE, which is a token of our love for Him

As we simply practice His Presence, by worshiping Him, fixing our heart’s eyes on Him, hungering and thirsting for more understanding of Him in the Word, while praying in tongues – then doing what He tells us to do in absolute obedience, He will manifest Himself to us.

“He who has My commandments and keeps them, is he who loves Me.

He who loves Me, shall be loved by My Father and

I will love him and will manifest Myself to him” – John 14:21

Websters define “manifest” as follows: readily perceived by the senses and especially by the sense of sight; easily understood or recognized by the mind : obvious.

Let us pursue Him more then ever in the Word, in worship and prayer, seeking His face to know Him and to come to the full revelation of what He has done for us on Calvary, what is the hope of our calling, what is our inheritance in Him and what is the exceeding great resurrection power of the Holy Spirit living inside of us.

4. He comes when we are in ONE ACCORD in UNITY

After He was raised from the dead He came and showed Himself to those who loved Him, who had a holy reverence for Him, who were gathered in His Name, who were having conversations about Him and the Word and who “waited” on Him in one accord.

When the disciples were together in the upper room in prayer (after He ascended), “waiting on Him” (I’m sure they were talking about His person and the mighty things He did), He suddenly poured out the Holy Spirit upon them in power to do the greater works and be witnesses of Him.

The pattern that was set in the Church of Acts is returning and as we come together in one accord in His Name, around His Word, in reverence before Him in prayer, enjoying communion together, He manifests Himself in His resurrection power, with miracles, signs and wonders! (Acts 2:42-44)

He wants His body to give Him the pre-eminence in worship; and then to function as a living organism, caring for one another, loving one another, serving one another.

“And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common…” – Acts 2:42-44

5. The Lord desires to have COMMUNION with us in INTIMACY

To us who truly seek His face and His glory in loving obedience, He promises that he will manifest Himself to them and that He and the Father will come and make their abode with us. (John 14:23) This implies not only tangible, but VISIBLE!

When we seek Him as our Beloved Bridegroom to behold His beauty, He will reveal Himself to us in intimate kisses of revelation, feeding us with the fruit of the tree of life and tabernacle among us in the aloe tent of His love in intimate union-communion. Then we can go into the vineyards with Him, bringing the Kingdom of His Glory. Hallelujah!

I bless each reader with an intense hunger to seek His face until He manifests Himself in glory!
