Prophecy

Dream about Obama: Change

On the second night of a three-day fast, I had a dream I was with the Obama’s, Michelle and Barack.

I looked at Barack, pointed at him, he looked at me, and I said, “‘Change’ was your promise, and ‘change’ is God’s promise; their plan has been changed and your plan will not happen. You will change.”

He was stunned and didn’t know what to do. He wasn’t angry. He seemed to become friendlier, but dazed.

Then, I looked at Michelle. I knew. Michelle knew that I knew. And I knew that Michelle knew that I knew. I won’t share what I knew about Michelle, suffice to say that Michelle knew that I knew. We said nothing. And, that is all you need to know.

Then, I started to teach Barack what I was doing, at the time podcasting, because there wasn’t anything else for him to do since his life had changed.  · · · →

Construction February

I have been praying to the Lord for several months about wicked people and their evil goals. Over the last month, the Lord had been speaking to me about His response coming in February. I knew His response would be strong, but I had not idea what it would be.

Today, February 1, I saw it: Construction

There could be more coming from the Lord, but this part is also important. So, I’ll elaborate on “construction as strategy”…

All construction sites have similar effects, but consider road construction as one applicable example.

Road construction causes two things: 1. disrupted traffic, 2. strengthened infrastructure.

During any construction phase, it is difficult for anyone—locals or visitors, criminals or honest folk, civilians and governments. The Italian Job wouldn’t have worked so well if all the get-away streets had been closed for road construction. Imagine a movie chase scene when the characters suddenly run into road construction, regardless of who is pursuing who. Even a tank can’t roll across a bridge that is half-disassembled. And there is no point in bombing a half-finished runway, so construction could even avert a military assault, if it’s what the Lord wants.

Construction disrupts a lot of things, and the good guys seem to fair better during times of construction.

After construction, roads are smoother, weeds don’t have cracks and potholes to grow in. And everything works better. Things generally get better for the good guys because the bad guys need problems in order to further their evil goals.

Construction often times reconfigures things. Roads may curve differently, for example. Depending on the architect, this could be good or bad. Nazis installed death camps and used railroads. Not all infrastructure is good. But, in this case, with the Lord as the Architect, the coming changes will benefit Him and His people.

There is much more that could be said about construction. Here, just consider that part of God’s current strategy to help His people is “construction”.

God’s work is not finished yet. The devil and his fools were ready for whatever mischief they planned this time, like a house cat who thinks it owns the house when it can’t even open a door. The Lord didn’t respond with parting skies and opening seas. He just declared a surprise construction zone. And that was the end of the devil’s schemes, for now.

The Helper doesn’t need to finish His work in order to help us. We only need His work to begin. And, as of February, it has.

Look around you. Look at the things God is doing and beginning. Look at the new tools still in beta, strong enough to help, but not strong enough to harm. Look at the projects in your life that have finally gotten a clear way.

One reason God chooses “weak and broken” people is that the devil is so weak that he relies on the strong. If you are weak in yourself, but strong in God, then the devil can’t use you and it would waste his time to hurt you.

This is the Lord’s tactic with His people now: Construction Zone. Work on the way, rest in Him, and don’t complain if the dust hasn’t settled yet. As the redeemed, a season of construction zones is to our advantage.

Greatest Outpouring / Responding to Prophetic Promises

Martin Best
IT’S COMING: I had a very intense dream last night/early this morning that at first I thought was just for me because I normally not recognize individuals in my dreams unless they’re just for me. However, Holy Spirit said to share parts of this one.
I was in a large room like a school gymnasium with round tables and chairs, somewhere in the south, listening to the worship team. As I was getting lost in the worship I noticed one individual come off the stage area and go over to the table where my wife was sitting and begin to chat with her.
Then a few moments later a young man came over and sat down next to me and I recognized him as Jeremy Mangerchine . We started talking about “stuff”, how it’s easy to gain weight eating all the good food around New Orleans, and then he said,
“The Father wants you to know that you’re about to see the greatest outpouring of His Spirit since the first Pentecost – and that all of the signs, wonders and miracles since that day until now will pale in comparison to what He is about to do now through His sons and daughters who have been tried and tested over the years.”
I RECEIVE ABBA – LET IT BE SO!
Prophetic dream from Martin Best.
————————————————————–
Do you want in on this? Even though it’s a promise, even though it’s a gift, it’s not without cost.
The key, I believe, to participating in words like this is ὑπομονή, perseverance: not swerving from our deliberate purpose. If we approach this as a tourist, as an observer, then at best, we’ll watch it from a safe distance; we won’t be in the midst of it. 
It’s easy to hear promises like this and get excited about them. That doesn’t accomplish much more than a temporary emotion.
It’s easy to hear promises like this, and to notice that you haven’t seen what it’s talking about, and get discouraged, and quit hoping, quit believing, quit pressing in for them. I don’t mean to be harsh, but that disqualifies us from most of the promise.
I hear Father emphasizing something this morning: emphasizing that we have the choice for how much we get to participate in promises like this. And our choice is revealed by how we respond. Here’s what I hear him whispering is a wise response, a response that targets us for participating:
·         Don’t just grab the promise (any promise) blindly. Examine it. Judge it. Discern it. (1 Corinthians 14:29).
·         An emotional reaction is fine, but insufficient. It’s good to be happy about an extravagant promise like this, but happiness is just wrapping paper: it’s not substance.
·         If we want the promise to come about, we pretty often need to participate with God in bringing it out of the spiritual realm and into the world here. That may involve work. It will involve prayer, and likely lots of prayer, much of it in face-to-face declaration of that which is promised as though it were already manifested in our community. Agree with the word. Vigorously.
·         I recommend dialog, listening to God even as we’re talking with Him (and declaring to creation) about the promise. He’ll give more clarity, more revelation, more direction in how to pray, how to work, what to expect, who to partner with, etc.
So do you want in on this? Are you ready to go war over the promises? This is part of the trying and testing the word speaks about.

“I AM RESTORING THE GRID”

I was sharing with Holy Spirit recently on a drive into Olympia, Washington, to help a friend and to be at a ministry meeting with another friend … and Holy Spirit began to share with me some things about the times and seasons.
 
As a bit of background – over the last several years many awesome men and women of God within the institutional, mainstream denominational churches, often – and suddenly – found themselves no longer part of the organizations that they had been ministering in for many years.
 
For some it was a voluntary move – they just knew it was time to move on to something, for others Abba had to get them across the bridge and then burn it down behind them to get them where He wanted – OFF THE GRID.
 
And so for many years now they have worked in obscurity, enjoyed being the Church instead of going to church, and have listened to Abba as He began to reveal hidden things for the days ahead.
 
Like Elijah some felt they were the only ones, but in reality, He has hidden away thousands of such individuals around the world… hidden for such a time and season as is about to come upon us.
In the natural, our nation’s power grid serves us well, unless there is a significant or unnatural load placed on it, or parts of it are impacted by events, and then it is literally lights out.
 
In a similar vein, our spiritual power grid has served us well over the decades, but it has become stressed and weak in many areas and any significant spiritual issue or attack could cause it to crash isolating pockets of believers around the nation in spiritual dimness – and in some areas, darkness.
 
Today, Holy Spirit showed me that one of the reasons Abba has taken so many “off the grid” is that He needed to restore and upgrade many key sections and transformer in the old system and could only do it when they were off line.
 
Today I heard Abba clearly say
 
“I AM RESTORING THE POWER GRID”
 
So be prepared and ready to be plugged back into His power system, be ready to take on a significant power shift, and to ensure that His power gets to those who need it…

Northwest Prayer Assignment, 2015

Report for April/May of 2015
By Rachel Hickson and her team.
  
INTRODUCTION
In November 2014, as Rachel was preaching at Destiny Life Center, the Holy Spirit spoke to her and reminded her of her mandate to pray “from Washington to Washington.”  For several years Rachel and various team members have gathered in WashingtonDC to pray, but now we feel there is a shift in the spirit and it is time to stir the Northwest and Washington State
Again and again Rachel has been impacted by the number of people who were stirred to pray for a spiritual awakening in the Northwest as a result of the Northwest Intercessors conference held in Portland during the 1990’s. Many times people have said those times of prayer changed their life. So at the end of last year Rachel felt God challenge her to call the remnant of prayer warriors who love the Northwest and begin to pray specifically for this area of Americaagain. Ahead of the election year we need to cry out to God and see an awakening of the government of Jesus in the Northwest!
The purpose of our Prayer Strike was threefold:
  1. To reestablish right lines of government and order in the state.
  2. To unlock the pioneer spirit of the Northwest: we visited areas where the origins of the spiritual life of the Northwest were forged, where commerce was born, and the birthplace of the significant cities of the Northwest region.
  3. To awaken the right spiritual atmosphere over the Northwest.
The scripture God quickened to Rachel was from II Samuel 11:1 “In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war, David sent Joab out with the king’s men and the whole Israelite army. They destroyed the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained in Jerusalem.”
OUTLINE OF PRAYER DAYS
On April 25, 2015, the Strike began as Rachel and Helen and several members of Rainier Hills Christian Center visited a monument erected to commemorate a place of injustice during the Indian War fought in 1855 at Connell’s Prairie, 6 miles west of Buckley. Rachel represented the British army officers as Gordon’s family has a strong history of military service in the British army.  They prayed to cleanse the land of bloodshed and injustice, and declared a new covenant of God over this area.  It was discovered that after this conflict, many of the Native American tribes moved to Alki Point and thus founded the city of Seattle, where we were planning to pray later in the week.

Monday, April 27, a team of 14 seasoned intercessors gathered in Bellevueto strategize and plan the Prayer Strike over the Northwest region. We prayed and took communion together and we then discussed and identified the key areas that should be our prayer focus for this time.  We dedicated oil, salt and wine as spiritual tools that we would use in our prayer journey to establish cleansing, represent the anointing of God and God’s covenant blood. 

We felt God saying that He wanted to release a new sound in the region, and realized that the word “Bell” kept coming up.  Our first meeting was in BELLvue, our second day in BELLinghamand our third day in BELLtown.  As we prayed in Spokaneon the fourth day, we were gathered around the Clock/BELL tower and it began to strike the chimes for 11 AM.  On our last day, as we prayed at the monument erected to commemorate the birthplace of Seattle, one of the women listed had the surname BELL.  Many times as we prayed throughout the week, we heard bells or chimes ringing, almost as if God was endorsing our prayer.
Some of the key senses that we felt as a team were that Washington State is at a pivotal point in history. This area of the Northwest has been called to pioneer and be the Northwest cornerstone for the nation. We prayed that there would be a turnaround beginning in the west and moving to the east.  We prayed – let them pioneer to bring the glory and establishment of God rather than the liberal ways. Many prophetic words spoken over the last two decades have spoken of God’s glory falling in the Northwest and then moving to the east of our nation.  Chuck Pierce prophesied that this is a whirlwind state. JH heard the words “Appoint and Disappoint” and shared that God is looking for whistle blowers who will pay the price.  RZ heard the words “tuning fork”, bringing a new sound of resonance with God, and “pruning” – a cutting back to bring a more healthy harvest.
On Tuesday, April 28, the team met at Light of the World PrayerCenter in Bellingham.  We drove to the Peace Arch and had an amazing time of prayer disconnecting the old covenants of bloodshed. We began declaring the covenant of God over this strategic border. We particularly prayed for the border to be protected from every malicious spirit wanting to cause harm to America. We secured the boundaries in the spirit as we stood in the gates.  JH had a stone taken from the land of the Lummi Tribe and as he held it, we anointed it with oil, wine and corn (Hosea 2:22), prayed a blessing and placed it as a representative of the true cornerstone, Jesus, to establish a new covenant in that region.  
Then we split into two teams: one team went to the Fairhaven district, where prostitution and human trafficking has been a long-standing stronghold.  We prayed to break those chains.  We also prayed at the location of a home held by the Masonic Lodge, which was reportedly being sold to an Islamic organization.  We prayed that those ungodly contracts would be broken and that land be used for God’s purposes.
A second team went up to the Sehome tower over the WWU campus and prayed for revival to come to this generation of students.  Each time we prayed to release a new sound, a train nearby would blow its whistle!  AMEN!
We concluded the day at the Light of the World Centerin prayer.  HA declared, in Arabic, a blessing over the US and Israel in a powerful demonstration with the Israeli flag and the USflag.   Many prophetic words were released and an atmosphere of great joy was present.
On Wednesday, April 29, the team gathered in Belltown and walked up to the Gates Foundation.  On our way, we had a significant prayer time at the Memorial Stadium, where in 1951 and 1962 Billy Graham held great crusades.  Rachel saw the names of some servicemen who had been lost in war written on the wall, and just saw them representing the names of many who would get saved in this generation.   NC led us to a Board Room at the Gates Foundation and we were privileged to hear about the work being done to feed and bring healthcare to needy nations and people groups.  Then, once again, we split up into smaller groups to strike various locations in the city.

One group went to the Columbia Towerobservatory, 73 stories up, which is the highest place in the city.  From there we were able to see many strategic communities and landmarks and pray for revival, declare the covenant of God, and call in God’s heart for the city. 

Another team went to the waterfront and prayed for the cleansing of the waters, removal of the atmosphere of suicide and depression from downtown Seattle and for the godly influence of Seattleto the nations from the city.  They also went up to the top of the Space Needle.   Rachel had had a word as she prayed earlier in the day that God was leading us back to the same point but at a different level of influence and authority; that although we may feel we are going round and round in circles we are shifting and changing our geography. As we walked up the Space needle suddenly this word had a perfect illustration, as each time we walked around the entrance of the Space Needle we came back to the same point and same view of the city but at a higher elevation and the perspective changed.  God spoke to us that even though it seems we have come around to the same place as we have prayed before, we need to have a new perspective because we are at a higher level.
A third team went to the City Hall and prayed at the Mayor’s office, even as the city council was meeting.
We concluded the day with a divine appointment at St Luke’s Episcopal Church in Ballard.   This is where the charismatic movement really began with Dennis Bennett in the 1960’s.  We met with their current priest, Canon Brit Olson, who had just 2 months earlier taken this parish in a “Big Yes” response to God who asked her to move there.  She shared how she has been prayer walking the community, how desperate the need is to help restore this sanctuary and how they feed over 1,000 meals every month to the homeless.  Brit took us to the old historic chapel and as we sang in the Spirit, we soaked in God’s presence there.  We were able to bless Brit with some cash and know that this was a divine appointment from God.
On Thursday, April 30, Rachel, Helen and Glenda flew to Spokane to prayer strike on the east side of the state.  Rachel shared the prophetic and biblical significance of the east gate.  Pastors Barry and Kay Hill met us with several other pastors from the area.  We walked the university district, where there are now 6 universities all sharing this area.  Even the flags were declaring to “think big” and so we declared all over that campus that God would make Himself known to the students.  We had a particularly powerful prayer time in a gazebo that had blades on top of it that whirled in the wind.  As we prayed for the wind of God, the wind in the natural began to blow.
We then went to pray at the birthplace of Spokane, also the site of the 1974 World’s Fair.    As we prayed, the clock tower began to strike the hour of 11 AM with loud chimes. The bells rang for 12 minutes, as least three different bells in the city each after one another and the time was not on the hour – it was 11:16 when the last bell started chiming! Rachel shared how it may seem we are at the same location as we have prayed before, but God has elevated us to a new position for better perspective.   We then walked to the City Hall, where we were given opportunity to pray in the council chambers for the government and governing officials of the city.    Helen shared a word she had prepared regarding the 6 cities of refuge in Israel and how the original meaning of each city’s name had significance for Spokaneas a city of refuge. 
Thursday evening we concluded the day with a powerful service at Victory Faith Fellowship with Pastors Craig and Moni Lotze.  The worship was powerful and there was electricity in the air as Rachel shared a message of giving a “Big Yes” to God and “Bold No” to those things that are not giving Him glory.  Many people came forward for prayer and it was a glorious time in the presence of God.  We know that sovereign Kingdom connections were made in this strategic time.
Friday, May 1, we flew back to Seattleand stopped at the Birthplace of Seattle monument on Alki Beach.  There were 5 women on our team and, significantly, 5 women listed on this monument; one of them was called Sarah BELL. Again the new sound of bells was ringing!

Then a team of 9 women met on the Interstate 90 bridge.  This is the only highway that stretches from the west coast to the east coast, so it is a significant roadway.  We prayed for God’s glory to go from Washington, to Washington DC to Jerusalem!    The team concluded at the Jewish synagogue on Mercer Island, calling God’s people back to salvation and to the knowledge of their heritage.  We broke any assignments to attack the Jewish people and blessed Israel and those of Jewish heritage. 

The glorious conclusion of the day was our first Northwest Regional Prayer Meeting held at SonriseChristian Centerin Everett.  There was a full house and you could sense the excitement as intercessors came together from all over the region to pray.   It was like a reunion as many greeted each other after long absences.  Rachel again preached a powerful message, calling the intercessors back to a life of prayer (you can listen to the message here).  The altars were completely filled with men and women crying out to God, recommitting themselves to pray.
TESTIMONIES
Heard from some inside sources (key believer who works at the border) that a few days after we prayed they discovered and shut down an Isis training cell in Canada just eight miles from the border.
So that is an overview of the time of prayer we had for the Northwest part of this amazing nation called America. During this time the UK elections were held and everyone expected these elections to have no clear outcome and lead to a time of compromised government for Britain. But God did a miracle and against all the odds we have a clear leader and secure government. All the media called it a miracle TURNAROUND – I believe that as we enter 2016 we need to see a turnaround for the American people too.
Let it be, God – establish your Kingdom!

Mid Course Corrections Going On

If you’re an observer of the church, you’ll notice something interesting: God is leading the emerging generation of believers differently than the path the generation that’s finishing their race ran on.

Even now, if you ask about priorities for the people of God, believers in the “over 40” age group will talk about theology, and the need to have all the theology right. This group talks about the Bible as the authority, though they often live as though the Sunday sermon is the real authority. (Note: “over 40” is just an approximation: some 30-year-olds belong in this group, and some 60-year-olds belong in the other.)

But if you ask believers in the “under 40” age group the same question, they won’t mention theology. This group is more focused on “How can I change the world?” and they expect to refine their theology along the way. This group also regards the Bible highly; the Bible, interpreted by the Holy Spirit, not by the pastor’s sermon, is the real authority.

The curious thing is that the second group, rather than the first is actually more Biblical: this is the model used over and over in the Book of Acts: “He said preach the good news to the whole world! Let’s go preach somewhere that nobody else has preached yet.” In fact, it has been said that Apostle Paul’s method of being led by God was something of “bumbling around in the Spirit until something happened!”

Regardless of which group you find yourself in (I think of them as the “Get The Theology Right” group and the “Change the World” group), this is not suggesting to you that theology is not important. It is of critical importance. But theology is not more important – or more urgent – than obeying the Word.

As I’ve been reflecting on this, I realize that, being in the older age bracket, I’ve been assuming that the theological questions have been the right questions to ask. I’m changing that opinion.

Curiously, when given instructions by God to go do something (such as “Go into all the world and preach the good news of the gospel”), it is the servants who insist on getting the instructions exactly right. The response of sons of the Kingdom is more along the lines of “Hey, good idea. Grab the debit card and let’s go!”

Since many of us in the older group, who have valued theology so much, are finally understanding so much more about our status as sons, not as servants, and since we’re teaching the younger believers that they’re sons, not servants, I suppose we should not be surprised that they’re making the choices that sons make, rather than making the choices that servants make, as my generation has done (much to our embarrassment).

As I’m learning more about my identity as a son, not a servant (why did nobody tell me this decades ago???), I’m coming to value the perspective of the second group more. I admire their willingness to take risks, I admire their eagerness to follow God’s leadership, and I admire how much they’re getting done!
  
I’m going to think more carefully about how to continue my ministry before the Lord.

Front-line Leaders and Forerunners Are Shifting!

Editor’s note: This word is neither from the Northwest (Lana is from Australia), nor specifically to the Northwest. But I felt Father breathing on this word, and my sense is that a number of Northwesterners are going through what she’s describing. If you are one of them, then grab hold of this word and use it in your prayer, in your battle, on your own behalf, and on behalf of other forerunners in your region! ~nwp

There is a great assault and attack against many front-line leaders and forerunners right now. The enemy is working hard to ‘shut down’ these ones and hinder them from moving forward and stepping into what the Lord is about to do in and through them.
I had a vision where I first heard the Lord say, “Front-line leaders and forerunners, batten down the hatches.”
I then saw many front-line leaders and forerunners all together and bent down on their knees with their shields held up in front of them, sitting behind their shield of faith, and there was a barrage of arrows being thrown at them. Every time they have thought the “assault” had ended they stood up and the arrows would begin again. Many front-line leaders and forerunners have felt like they are in a moment of complete ‘assault’ from many directions. I saw many front-line leaders and forerunners weary from the battle.
In this vision, I was in front of these front-line leaders and forerunners and I could see the enemy and his demons which were shooting arrow after arrow at them attempting to wound them. In the ‘weariness’ many of these front-line leaders and forerunners were facing at times they put their shield down out of discouragement and weariness from holding it up, and were “hit” and “wounded” by these arrows that had come against them. So they were then holding their shield of faith up again but finding it harder than before because of the “wounds” they had received.
I then saw Jesus walk up behind many of these front-line leaders and forerunners, and I saw Him place His hand on their backs one by one and He was praying for them, interceding for them. As I watched, I saw Him moving His hand all across their backs in different spots. I walked over to have a look and saw other wounds these front-line leaders and forerunners had received were on their back. But the enemy was in front of them, so I was perplexed by these wounds on their back.
Suddenly, this “knowing” came over many. Not only were many of these front-line leaders and forerunners being hit from the front and the enemy coming on strong with his assault, there has been an assault against many of these ones from the ‘back.’ Being “stabbed in the back” by people they trusted, even other believers, judgments, curses and jealous words that had been spoken against them.
I could see Jesus was healing these wounds and praying for their strength in the midst of their battle. As He prayed His Words of truth and love were bringing such deep healing. A deep strengthening was happening in these front-line ones.
“And the God of Israel will be your rear guard.” (Isaiah 52:12, MEV).
The Lord then spoke, “A refreshing heavenly oasis (a fertile spot in a desert, where water is found.) is opening up before you. An invitation into deeper intimacy in the midst of this battle. Many of you have felt you are in the desert; the battle has been so intense that weariness has left you in a place of feeling dry and exhausted. Before you I am opening up a fertile spot, a place of life and heavenly waters of refreshing in Me.”
Places of incredible encounters with Him are opening up for front-line leaders and forerunners right now.
Suddenly, I saw pools of water forming around these front-line leaders and forerunners in the midst of the battle. Nothing had changed from the “arrows” coming against them, but there was a new level of intimacy being opened up for them as they remain steadfast in faith. Encounters with His heart like they have never had before while in the chaos of the battle. A deep refreshing was coming to these ones. An increase of visions, prophetic dreams and encounters that was seeing them begin to stand up in the midst of this battle and walk forward in boldness.
As these ones began to walk forward in boldness I saw Jesus walking with them. I could see Him behind them, beside them and before them all at the same time. They were holding their shield of faith in their hands and a determination in their heart and eyes to see the enemy and his demons overcome by the authority that was theirs.
As they moved forward, the enemy began to retreat, farther and farther back. I then noticed that as they were moving forward in boldness and a deep refreshment that had taken place in these encounters, I saw the body of Christ as a whole and in the middle I saw a clock. It looked like a normal clock face with numbers and clock hands, but then also on the clock face were various quadrants which represented seasons the body of Christ was moving into.
I saw the hour hand was seconds away from midnight, but still in the “contending season” quadrant. As these ones moved forward they began to speak out declarations and heavenly revelations the Lord had given them in these encounters and suddenly the clock began to shake. It was like an earthquake was happening in the middle of the clock and suddenly I saw the clock hand move to midnight and then again suddenly forward into “harvest revival increase time.”
The “knowing” then came over me that many of these forefront leaders and forerunners have been under such assault because the Lord is releasing through them the revelations and kingdom keys to shift the body of Christ into “harvest revival increase time,” but at an accelerated pace. Moving the people of God into a time of great revival within the body of Christ and releasing revival to the world.
What they were “fighting for” behind their shields was not only for their personal breakthrough but also fighting on behalf of the body of Christ to see one of the greatest shifts the church has ever seen before. Paving the way, breaking ground for the body of Christ to move into the greatest time of harvest, revival and increase they have ever experienced.
Suddenly as this clock hand moved past midnight into the “harvest revival increase time” I saw physical ailments, unexplained sickness and diseases, heavy financial burdens and word curses suddenly disappear off these front-line leaders and forerunners. Much of what these ones had endured through this season was sent from the enemy to stop them from moving forward and shifting the body of Christ into her new season. There was sudden restoration.
I saw Jesus approach these leaders and forerunners who had stood firm and moved forward, and hand them a huge kingdom key.  As He placed it in their hands they spoke, “Thank you Lord, I receive and believe.” I saw this key labeled “double recompense.” As their declaration and thankfulness met with His provision, suddenly “double doors” were unlocked around them and that released “double recompense” upon them for all that had been taken and broken in the ‘assault.’
Forefront leaders, and forerunners, there has been great assault against many of you, and the enemy has been screaming, “give up.” Do not give up, for you are not only fighting for your personal breakthrough but the shifting of the body of Christ into the greatest season we have seen thus far. You are but steps away from breakthrough. The Lord is with you. He is bringing healing to you.
Some of the greatest encounters with Him are upon you in the midst of the battle. He is opening up a heavenly oasis of refreshing before you in the midst of the battle. You will receive GREAT wisdom and revelation in these encounters and great strengthening that will not only set you on your feet again, but give you the keys to shift the body of Christ into this new season.
The Lord is walking with you, behind you and before you. It may seem that things have been lost and broken in this season, and it may feel like you have been under a constant barrage of arrows, but you are moving forward in greater strength, courage, fearlessness and revelation. Not only will you see tremendous breakthrough in your life, and receive double recompense but a huge corporate breakthrough and shifting across the body of Christ.
“I honor you for fighting. Jesus honors you for fighting and standing. I am proud of you front-line leaders and forerunners. Jesus is proud of you front-line leaders and forerunners. Thank you for standing! Jesus thanks you for standing. Your faith, obedience and sacrifice has not gone unnoticed. Great is your reward.”
Jesus stands before you welcoming you into your “harvest revival increase time” with the body of Christ following after you.

Coming Out of the Cave



Over the years many prophetic types and intercessors have spoken time and time again about hearing sounds of the earth groaning…here and there, sounds of the moving earth…

At the same time Abba has been realigning His children, hiding his children, taking the off the grid and hiding them under the protection of His wings…

And like in the days of old the children have seen themselves “alone” unaware of all that He has hidden…remaining quiet least they be found out….

BUT NOW the earth and the children SHALL sound forth in a growing cadence of His voice.

For the days of remaining quiet, of remaining silent, of consistent hiding are coming to an end…slowly but surely He is bringing forth the hidden prophets from the caves to show His power through the sounds of Heaven…
 
However, DO NOT EXPECT THINGS TO BE AS THEY WERE…for this is a new season where the sounds of heaven bring forth the power and the life He has declared over us…
 
Power and Glory are His forever and ever…
 
Enlarge and magnify your expectations for the days of thinking small are done and shall be forgotten for as big as our God so SHALL BE THE MANIFESTATION OF HIS POWER AND GLORY…AMEN AND AMEN

Dutch Sheets on 2015

Dutch Sheets has a prophetic word for 2015. He delivered this early in the year, but I’ve just now got it for posting.

The video portion of this is really ugly (someone aimed a camera at a computer monitor). But the audio is clear enough to understand well.

This is worth hearing.

God Is Releasing A Company Of Prophetic Messengers To Washington State and California

4/12/2015, from Melody Paasch

A SIGNIFICANT DREAM ABOUT CALIFORNIAAND WASHINGTON STATE

Just a bit of background before I share about our recent trip to California.   Sometime in 2011, I had a very vivid and significant dream.  In this dream, I was specifically told that the birds would be arriving in California and Washington State.  I asked what birds, to which I immediately heard, “The migratory birds.”  I asked, for what reason and was given a message that I believe is one of many strategies for the Body of Christ in this time.  God began to speak to me through the following passage in Jeremiah. 

Jeremiah 8:7-9 Amplified Bible (AMP)

7 [Even the migratory birds are punctual to their seasons.] Yes, the stork [excelling in the great height of her flight] in the heavens knows her appointed times [of migration], and the turtledove, the swallow, and the crane observe the time of their return. But My people do not know the law of the Lord [which the lower animals instinctively recognize in so far as it applies to them].

8 How can you say, We are wise, and we have the written law of the Lord [and are learned in its language and teachings]? Behold, the truth is, the lying pen of the scribes has made of the law a falsehood (a mere code of ceremonial observances).

I sensed that Papa was saying that it is our responsibility as the Body of Christ to seek Him and know our seasons and the plans He has in His heart.  By instinct (by The Spirit and not just the written word), as a part of God’s army, we should know His strategy and His timing.  The Kingdom of God is IN us and NEAR to us!  There are times and seasons that are strategically marked in God’s records for significant and specific events in the earth.  I believe that we are in one of those moments! If we are to labor with Him in His plans and purposes, we must sense those events and be willing to follow our Godly instincts.

THE MIGRATORY BIRDS REPRESENT GOD’S MESSENGERS IN NEED OF REFUGE
Since 2011, this dream has come up many times, but back in December of 2014, while in the Kansas City area with a friend, it was reiterated yet again!  This time I felt a very strong confirmation that this was the year I needed to instigate a prophetic journey to respond to Papa’s message.  The destination?  San Juan Capistrano, CA.  Why?  Because it is known as a historic receiver and incubator to the swallows migrating from Argentina in March every year.  It was a prophetic type and symbol. 

I knew that it was a prophetic picture of the messengers of God being received into the region, with safe haven for future growth and maturity. I believe that God is saying that California and Washington State will be birthing places for His prophetic voices, and this pattern will then sweep East across the nation.  I know that He is restoring and installing the voice of the prophetic everywhere, but for some reason this region is definitely an area He is talking about.  I can only address the part I’m given.  

These anointed ones will move across the U.S. from the West Coast to the East Coast, releasing the word and heart of God for the nation.  It will set a precedence in the spiritual realm, dispatching the angelic for needed direction and strategy.  He is releasing more of His champions with very specific talents, to work side by side with others who are devoted to building the Kingdom of God in every area of culture and society.  Not to build man’s agenda with all of it’s nuances and control, but to release Papa’s heart for this time and people. I believe that He loves mankind above all of His creation, and desires to labor with us in the earth. 

So, upon our arrival we had a daunting surprise!  Julie, one of my beloved interns, and I arrived at the San Juan Capistrano Mission, looking for the yearly arrival of the legendary swallows!   We found, to our dismay, that they no longer have an inviting home there, even though there has been such a long and rich heritage of their migration in this place.

THE HOUSE IS UNDER RECONSTRUCTION

During a long process of the mission’s reconstruction, management built man-made homes for the birds, hoping the swallows would accept the new structures as sanctuary for themselves.  Unfortunately, the swallows have begun to find other nesting areas to thrive in during their season there. This feels a bit like what we do in Christianity at times.  Could it be that we sometimes tear down the natural order of things to build something bigger, or maybe better?  Not that there is anything wrong with progress, as long as it’s congruent with God’s plan.  It also seems that the mess the swallows brought with them, had been an inconvenience to the surrounding merchants.  They were considered by some, to be an annoyance. 

We noticed that the crows and other predatory birds had taken squatters rights and were running most of the smaller birds away.  We watched and grieved as one little swallow came into the courtyard of the mission only to experience the aggression of a crow.  This was beginning to look like a pattern of some things we sometimes witness or experience in far right or radical religious circles.

I sense that the church as a whole has been in the middle of reconstruction (this is a good thing by the way) and that there has been little room for the young prophets or messengers of God. Have they fallen through the cracks of churchianity?  Maybe a man-made structure with an accurate architecture is being offered, just as it is at the mission, but lacking the heart and comfort of home. I wonder if these marked messengers feel that they are no longer welcome, or maybe can’t trust what is being offered them. They may realize that the structures built for their safety are simply a replica of a safe place.

ARE THE PROPHETS IN THE CHURCH TODAY?
So, I also find myself wondering if they have been hiding out, sitting before The Father, learning in secret from The Spirit?  The word does say that The Holy Spirit is our teacher and that He alone can teach us what we need to know.  However, I believe that God’s heart is to do so through loving leadership, as well as directly through His communication with us.  Without the needed experience of true community, those called of God can find it difficult to manage the use of their gifts, as well as their ethical behavior.  They may find that they are not generally accepted in Christianity, and are often judged and labelled as rebels.

Thus, there may be parts of the church, operating without the gift of the prophetic, and the young prophets may not be effectively prepared.  This is a travesty!  The Word says (Rev. 19:10) that the spirit of prophecy is the clear testimony or witness of Jesus.  If that was true when the Bible was written, wouldn’t that still be true, today?

It was interesting to me during the mission visit, that there was only the one small swallow that had the gumption to ignore the malicious caws of the crows.  Could the crows represent the ultra-religious, who do not believe that the gifts are for today?  It was sad really, and at the same time, I sensed such courage in this small bird.  This little and seemingly insignificant one seemed not to be phased. He was not honored for his valiant arrival, yet he ignored the quips of the mockers. 

WHAT A SWEET SURPRISE!

It reminded me of young Saul when he was secretly anointed for kingship by Samuel in 1 Samuel 10. He literally turned a deaf ear!  It is written that The Lord’s prophetic message over him changed Saul that day!  The prophetic can set direction, can give affirmation to what we know in our hearts, and can change circumstances when God chooses to release over us what is in His heart.

I watched that day, as that little swallow eventually took perch upon the erected index finger of a statue of the canonized representative for the mission: a priest who was the historic and celebrated advocate for the small and weak travelers to the mission.  What a sweet surprise!!!!  The swallow took the platform of the prophetic index finger as depicted by the five-fold ministry!*

* The five fingers of your hand are sometimes used as a way to remember the Five-fold Ministry of God’s Kingdom: 
1. Thumb – apostle (authority/leadership) 
2. Index Finger – prophet (messenger/one who decrees)
3. Middle Finger – evangelist (one who reaches out) 
4. Ring Finger – pastor (shepherd/covenant gatherer) 
5. Pinkie Finger – teacher (one who speaks/processes what will nourish the hearer).

I sat in awe as the little guy began to voice his passion vehemently.  I was amazed that such a tiny creature could have such a strong resolve!  He with deep fervor, progressively became louder!  It seemed for a moment that he was literally preaching directly to me.  He was trying to tell us something very important.  We watched as other people began to slowly gather, curious about what we were looking at and what had us so mesmerized.

As the people gathered, I stepped back to see the bigger picture.  While he preached his burning message, the people watched, taking photographs as though he were performing for them.  Isn’t this the way the gifts of The Spirit are sometimes received?  As a novelty or show?  The more the small crowd gathered before the little swallow, the more passionate he became!  What in the world was this small brave one telling us all?  I feared the crowd was not sensitive to his strong attempt, but Julie and I were acutely aware that it was immensely important and we listened intently to his strong effort. 

INVITING A NEW PROPHETIC BREED FOR A NEW MOVE OF GOD

Later, as we processed the events of the day, it all became very clear.  We knew that the reason we had been sent to the mission was to welcome the migratory birds, which represented the hidden prophetic voices in the earth.  Apparently, they do need welcoming, even to have the ability to arrive in their appointed place and time!  Clearly, what God requires of us as prophetic leaders in every area of ministry, is that we continually cultivate a safe environment for the inexperienced, but strong to be raised up.  It is my experience, that the prophetic needs very particular teaching, training and preparation for the understanding of their gifts.  I am seeking Papa even now, for better understanding of what that must look like. 

Julie, I and the NIT family knew that this trip was a prophetic act to invite a new prophetic breed for a new move of God, into all the safe places prepared for their installment and launching.  As you may know, not every place of spiritual equipping is a safe place for the prophetic.  I must remind you though, that God will do nothing without speaking it first to His prophets.  This is His declaration to all the ages and generations of mankind.  He has promised that He will co-labor to create, with and through His prophets and His prophetic people. 

IF WE WELCOME THESE MESSENGERS INTO A SAFE PLACE

I strongly felt that this was an extraordinary moment we were honored to experience; and that Papa was confirming that there would be an influx of the “pure” prophetic into all organizations that are willing to train and equip through freedom of The Spirit of Truth.  I fear that it will not happen without true relationship.  If we welcome these messengers into safe and loving environments, they will grow and mature for their designated occasion and purposes.
