MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
…..”This book of the law [the Word
of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success"....
Joshua 1:8 NASB
These Things Affirm Constantly” ...."This is a trustworthy statement; and concerning these things I want you to speak confidently [affirm constantly], so that those who have believed God will be
careful to engage in good deeds. These things are good and profitable for men".... Titus 3:8 NASB
- The word confession, in its positive meaning in the Bible, is affirming what God has said in His Word. It is witnessing
to the Word’s declaration. It is testifying to truths revealed in the Book. We have been divinely instructed to “hold fast our confession” (Hebrews 4:14 nkjv); and again, “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering,
for He who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23 nkjv). Not only are we to hold fast our confession of the Word, but we are to affirm constantly those things God has revealed to us.
What is confession? Confession is saying
what God has said in His Word about a certain thing. It is agreeing with God. It is saying the same thing the Scripture says. To hold fast your confession is to say what God has said over and over until the thing desired in your heart and promised in the Word
is fully manifested. There’s no such thing as possession without confession. When we discover our rights in Christ, we are to affirm these things constantly. Testify to them. Witness to these gigantic Bible facts. Or as Paul said in Philemon 6, “The
communication of thy faith [becomes] effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus” (emphasis added). Affirmations of truth are to ring from our lips constantly. We are to hold fast to them without wavering. The penalty
for wavering in our confession is that we deny ourselves God’s promise and the performance of it. “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.
For he that wavereth…let not that man think he shall
receive any thing of the Lord” (James 1:6–7). “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so” (Psalm 107:2). “Let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified” (Psalm 70:4, emphasis added). What things are we to
affirm constantly? Affirm the positive Scriptures that reveal the good things within us in Christ. There are hundreds of powerful affirmations to make constantly as we speak the language of the Scripture. These things affirm constantly: God is who He says
He is. I am who God says I am. God can do what He says He can do. I can do what God says I can do. God has what He says He has. I have what God says I have.
THE SON OF GOD SPOKE DIRECTLY FROM HIS THRONE
BY PIETER KIRSTEIN
Son of God spoke directly from His throne with a voice filled with His fiery passionate holy love that went through my entire being and He declared, "this is the essence of worship. I am the Musician and the Composer.
You are the yielded instrument in My hands which i desire to play and your life becomes the music, and you are the eternal song that I will sing to the Father. The Holy Spirit leads the dance, so let us make some music bride of Christ”
Worship is not lip-service it's a deep cry unto deep matter of the heart. Ask God to penetrate and sanctify your depths, and to activate and release the sound of your worship then you shall find that God is glorified out of the entirety of
your whole foundation.
The greatest and highest form of TRUE WORSHIP is a life sacrificed so that the God of wonders might be glorified throughout creation.
Father spoke out
of eternity and declared, "there are no adequate words that can articulate the majestic honor and glory that permeates a life that was sacrificed so that the God of wonders might be glorified. It has eternal consequences that only eternity can tell"
SURRENDER YOURSELF TO GOD!
FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The
pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
THE GREAT IMPORTANCE OF ONLY SPEAKING WORDS THAT ALIGN
WITH THE FATHER'S HEART AND WILL Words of prophecy: * My children must be found "creating" their "tomorrow", today [now] - through corresponding words and actions of faith that align themselves perfectly with a revelation of My Word and obedience to the still,
small voice of My Spirit.
...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are taking every thought captive [through proclamation] to
the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB ...."out of the fullness [the overflow, the superabundance] of the heart the mouth speaks".... Matthew 12:34 The Amplified Translation ...."[the activation of] Death and
[the activation of] life are in the power of the tongue".... Proverbs 18:21a NASB
It is very important for every child of God to begin confessing [proclaiming] with your mouth words that align with your goal [vision] - and, NO MATTER
WHAT [you feel, see, hear or "think"] - NEVER speak words that do not align with your God-given goal [if you do, apply the precious Blood, and then move on]. Positive [righteous] words ALWAYS supersede negative [unrighteous] words. For instance, a number of
years ago when I really needed to lose weight and do more exercise I began to confess, "I thank You Father that I am fit and trim" .
I declared this upon every remembrance of my unhappiness concerning my weight. Even if I was eating
things that were not conducive to my goal I would still [sometimes mid-bite] confess, "Father, I thank You that I am fit and trim". Before long I found myself not even desiring the things I should not have been eating, and I also found that my appetite in
general had greatly decreased.
Lo and behold, in a few months, I realized that I had lost much weight - as the words I was speaking in faith came into manifestation. In reality [by the power of God's Word or through believing the
fear-filled lies of the Enemy] you can [and will] have whatever you think and say. Vast multitudes have the negative aspect of words working in their lives because they speak words in alignment with the fear-filled lies of the Enemy - words of negativity aligned
with the curse that he wants them to speak so that "he" can maintain some form of "control" over their lives.
...."[There is] therefore now NO condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk [talk] not after the flesh, but
after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death".... Romans 8:1-2 KJV
...."Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,'
and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be [granted] him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe [based on the finished work of the Cross, the Word of God and the Blood Covenant]
that you have [already] received them, and they will be [granted] you".... Mark 11:23-24 NASB
...."But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I BELIEVED, THEREFORE I SPOKE," we also believe, therefore we
also speak".... 2 Corinthians 4:13 NASB Prayer of Proclamation: Father, we thank You and praise You for the deep and abiding revelation of the importance of words in our life that You have blessed [divinely empowered] us with. Let us be found faithful to speak
ONLY that which aligns itself with Your Heart and Plan for this glorious final hour. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory! Amen.
...."Let NO [not even one] unwholesome [unrighteously
motivated, selfseeking] word proceed from your mouth, but ONLY such [a word] as is good for edification according to the need [of the moment,] so that it will give [impart] Grace [Life, Love, Truth, Wisdom, Righteousness etc.] to those who hear [including
oneself]".... Ephesians 4:29 NASB
DO YOU HEAR THE RUMBLING . . .
By Deborah Waldron Fry
Do you hear the Rumbling? There is coming a move of the Spirit in which men and women will stand and watch in awe. Though God moves through us now and loves to do that, this coming MOVE will involve so much Holy Spirit Power that only He alone
can bring it forth. The natural man cannot handle it.
Only by the Spirit can we bear it. We will be a part of it but this is a time when we will stand and watch in wonder and amazement and say "Look what the Lord has done." There
will be a hush upon the earth. There are kingdoms and governments that shall fall. The sons and daughters of God shall emerge in such great anointing and power that the earth shall shake. Demons shall tremble. Only those who possess the Spirit of the Fear
of the Lord shall be able to wield this powerful Sword of the Spirit. And I see mighty warring angels accompanying this great Move of the Spirit that is wreaking havoc on the kingdom of darkness!
"Beloved. The time has come
for the soon return of the King. I am coming to shut the mouths of lions. There is more to this life, My Child, than you have asked or imagined. Yield to this next Move. I give Grace to the Humble. Hear the Spirit calling. The Resurrection Power in you is
rising up. Many have fallen along the way because they desired My Glory for their own. This is not you, Dear One. I know your heart and it is pure.
"You are of those who look like their Father. You are made in My Image. But
the enemy seeks to cloud your eyes. You could not see this with your natural eyes. It is beyond your natural ability to see beyond your earthly image. But I am opening your eyes to see that you look like Me in the Spirit. You are Holy as I am Holy through
the Blood of the Lamb. The natural man cannot look upon the things of God, but you are a supernatural life giving spirit through your new birth.
"Those who have bowed down in humility and Fear of the Lord are being raised
up. Take your eyes off of the world, Beloved, and keep your eyes on Me. This is the beginning of wisdom. My Seven Spirits shall rest upon My Remnant. This time is here. The Spirit of the Lord will rest on you, the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, the Spirit
of Counsel and of Power, the Spirit of Knowledge and the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord.
"Your deep Spiritual Hunger has caused you to walk with Me and talk with Me. We are One. I am a Rewarder of those who diligently
seek Me. You will do only what you see your Father doing. Blessed are the Pure in Heart for you shall see God. You shall know what I am doing by the Spirit. My Glory is coming upon the earth in great Power. The earth is groaning for the Revelation of the sons
and daughters of God. This is the Move of the Father.
" I have come to ready you for this Mighty Move. For those who will humble themselves in the Fear of the Lord will be anointed with Great Power. The Anointing shall
destroy the yokes! The enemy shall flee! It will be all Me, My Child. It will be by Grace through faith. And no man shall get the Glory. The Mighty Angels are with you and all of heaven and earth shall tremble as My Remnant comes forth in power and humility.
"Get ready, get ready, get ready, My Chosen One, for this Mighty Move of God. The glowing coals are coming from the Altar of God and they shall touch your lips and you will speak with GREAT POWER and Anointing for
the Son has removed your iniquity and atoned for your sin. It will not be of works, lest any should boast. You shall see your King, the Lord of Hosts for I alone am mighty to save. And out of the Throne of Grace shall proceed lightnings and thunderings and
voices: and the Seven Lamps of Fire burn before the Throne, which are the Seven Spirits of God.
" Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts."
"I still have much to tell you, but you cannot yet bear to hear it. However, when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak what He hears, and He will declare to
you what is to come." John 16:12-13
"Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us."
2 Corinthians 4:7
“The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him—the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.” Isaiah 11:2
"And out of the
throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God." Revelation 4:5
"The fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom, and
humility comes before honor." Proverbs 15:33
“Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven
horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.” Revelation 5:6
"By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honor, and life." Proverbs 22:4
"John, To the seven churches in the province of Asia: Grace and peace to you from Him who is and was and is to come, and from the Seven Spirits before His throne," Revelation 1:4
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning
of wisdom; all who follow His precepts gain rich understanding. His praise endures forever!" Psalm 111:10
"Young lions go lacking and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. Come, children, listen to me; I
will teach you the fear of the LORD. 12 Who is the man who delights in life, who desires to see good days?" Psalm 34:10-11
"Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted." Matthew
"But He gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:6
"Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved,
compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience," Colossians 3:12
"The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever; the judgments of the LORD are true, being altogether righteous. They are more precious
than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb." Psalm 19:9-10
"Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it to the earth; and there were peals of
thunder, and rumblings, and flashes of lightning, and an earthquake." Revelation 8:5
"Then I said: “Woe is me, for I am ruined, because I am a man of unclean lips dwelling among a people of unclean lips; for my eyes
have seen the King, the LORD of Hosts.” Then one of the seraphim flew to me, and in his hand was a glowing coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. And with it he touched my mouth and said: “Now that this has touched your lips, your
iniquity is removed and your sin is atoned for.” Isaiah 6:5-7
Prayers to Prevent War
Casey Harper, IFA Contributing Writer | July 30, 2022
Prayers to Prevent War
Father, we pray against the spirits of fear and confusion. Prevent our global leaders from engaging in war, God. Give them wisdom and promote peace between them.
With plenty of controversy,
division and spiritual warfare within the United States, it can be easy to forget that the rest of the world is actually on the verge of major upheaval.
The recent death
of a major leader in Japan, the war in Ukraine, China growing more restless about Taiwan and
more make it increasingly important that we as intercessors remain diligent to fight the spiritual war both at home and abroad.
Insider Intercessory Information
For this article, I talked with a Christian who works
on space technology and has relationships with leaders around the world who gave me some natural and spiritual insights into how to tackle this battle:
The first things that come to mind is one, Japan and the South China Sea is something we are
may be missing the significance of right now. It’s an extremely historical, pivotal moment for Japan right now in the context of what’s going on in the South China Sea as well as the dynamic relationships with China and North Korea and watching
what’s happening with Russia and Ukraine, sort of this building sense of fear there.
This admonition is particularly timely given the fact that China’s leader Xi Jinping is unhappy that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi planned a visit
to Taiwan, a country that China claims is under its authority. The U.S. also sent an aircraft carrier into the South China Sea this week as tensions continue to rise.
My source pointed to a story in 2 Samuel 10 that could give key insights
into how world leaders react to threats and how war can easily break out:
[In 2 Samuel 10] you have an interesting situation where countries end up going to war because of the fear of war, and that is what potentially could happen in some neighboring
nations as they watch the war in Ukraine. What happens in 2 Samuel 10 is David does something as a neutral political act, sends his servants to the king. The king, it says, fears that this isn’t what it seems, and he actually attacks David’s servants.
David still doesn’t really do anything…but then the other king, out of fear, decides to build up his army, not attack but just build up his army, which is what you’re seeing in a lot of nations around the world. So he
builds up his army, and then David…is acting in fear that he is going to attack, and then it says ultimately that David decides to attack. But if you go back to the story, to draw the line from the beginning of the story to the war, there is actually
no logical sense, only fear and this buildup of armies and political miscommunications that ultimately lead to war, so that is one area that I’d say I’m praying into.
What a powerful insight!
We need to pray that no spirits of
fear or confusion can affect leaders in these tense times.
There is a lot of uncertainty in this area, but clearly it is not one that the intercessors can ignore.
Let’s remain diligent in praying for the nations!
They are our King’s inheritance, after all.
With that in mind, let us pray:
-Father, we pray you would give wisdom and restraint to world leaders, that peace would prevail and war would not break out. Guide President Joe
Biden in these talks, Lord, and give him your words. Peace, Father!
-Lord, we ask that you would bring peace in Ukraine and prevent war in the South China Sea. Hold back the plans of the enemy, and let your will be done. You are the Lord of Heaven and
Earth, and we give this situation to you.
-Father, prevent the kind of miscommunication and fear that leads to war, as we see in 2 Samuel 10. Do not let spirits of fear or confusion interfere in these affairs. Holy Spirit, we invite you into these discussions
Verses to press into as you intercede on this issue:
“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we
are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)
In the course of time, the king of the Ammonites died, and his son Hanun succeeded him as king. David thought, “I will show kindness to Hanun son of Nahash, just as his father showed kindness to me.”
So David sent a delegation to express his sympathy to Hanun concerning his father. When David’s men came to the land of the Ammonites, the Ammonite commanders said to Hanun their lord, “Do you think David is honoring your father by sending
envoys to you to express sympathy? Hasn’t David sent them to you only to explore the city and spy it out and overthrow it?” So Hanun seized David’s envoys, shaved off half of each man’s beard, cut off their garments at the buttocks,
and sent them away. (2 Samuel 10:1-4)
As for a rogue, his weapons are evil;
He devises wicked schemes
To destroy the afflicted with slander,
Even though the needy one speaks what is right.
But the noble man devises noble
And by noble plans he stands.
Are you praying for peace?

"4 Types of Angels & Practical Tips for Angelic Activation"
By Ana Werner
I find it appalling that the modern-day Church doesn't discuss angels more often.
gives us a record of encounters when angels showed up before Jesus' birth, during His years on this earth, and after His ascension. If the Bible is the holy written Word of God, and if angels are in it, then they must be a point of interest God wants us to
study. Of course, the study of angels should never precede our study of Jesus. Just as there are recorded in the Bible an archangel and a messenger angel, I believe angels hold different jobs and offices. Here are some of the different types of angels I have
Warning angels are simply that! They are angels sent by God to warn His people. In Genesis 19, two angels show up to warn Lot of the terrible destruction that is about to fall on Sodom and
Gomorrah. "...'Get them out of here, because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that He has sent us to destroy it'" (Gen. 19:12-13 NIV).
Now, why would the Lord care to warn Lot? If
He was planning on wiping out an entire city anyway, why would He send angels to warn a specific family to leave before the devastation hit? In His mercy, because of His relationship with Abraham (Lot's nephew), He saved Lot and his family (see Gen. 19:29).
Another well-known angel that comes with warning is Joseph's angel. The King Herod had been on a rampage to find and destroy Jesus, the child who was prophesied about who would rule the people of Israel. An angel came to Joseph in a dream.
"...'Get up,' he said, 'take the child and His mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill Him'" (Matt. 2:13 NIV). So once again we see God intercepting and sending a warning angel to change the
course of history.
I myself have never encountered a warning angel. I like to think, though, that the first angel I saw in Brazil protected me and kept me from danger. I talk about this story in my book, The Seer's Path.
God also sent angels that carried a message in the Bible. Gabriel the archangel comes to Mary at a pivotal time in her life.
"...'Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will
conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call Him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David, and He will reign over Jacob's descendants forever; His Kingdom will never
end.'" (Luke 1:30-33 NIV)
Wasn't that wonderful of God to send an angel to Mary at what could have been the scariest time in her whole life? Gabriel came and delivered a message of hope and encouragement to Mary. The Lord so lovingly knew
she would need hope and encouragement to face carrying the Son of God in her womb, not to mention having to go back and explain her pregnancy to her family and Joseph.
The Bible also describes
angels that fight or war on our behalf. In a despairing time, and at the end of a twenty-one day fast, Daniel has a crazy vision and encounters a brilliant angel. In Daniel 10, the angel tells him:
"...'Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since
the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief
princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia.'" (Dan. 10:12-13 NIV)
This scripture brings so much comfort. Its contents show us that God hears our prayers even if we can't see His answer to them yet. God
hears our prayers! Isn't that awesome?
Michael is described as an angel that came and helped Daniel's angels fight off a demonic power. This was no little demon either! It was so strong that it kept Daniel's angel detained for a twenty-one
day battle. The archangel Michael must have been one giant angel! Thankfully, the Lord sends us angels to battle for us when we are weak!
Then there are those angels that show up in the Bible just
to give revelation to people. You can imagine the disciples of Christ scratching their heads, thinking, Huh? What just happened? as Jesus leaves in a cloud up to Heaven. Jesus ascends and the disciples are standing there, "...looking intently up into the sky
as He was going..." (Acts 1:10 NIV). They are still staring up into the sky when two angels show up behind them to explain it all. Isn't it refreshing that even the disciples, who spent all their time with Jesus, often just didn't get it? It brings us hope
as we sometimes miss all that God has for us in the Scriptures.
"'Men of Galilee,' they said, 'why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into Heaven, will come back in the same way you have
seen Him go into Heaven.'" (Acts 1:11 NIV)
"Ahhh!" they responded. (No, I just added that in.) It's like revelation sunk in! The Lord was so gracious to send them angels to explain everything. I wonder if He was sitting in Heaven watching
them staring at the clouds, and He looked at His angels and said, "Geez! Would you guys go down there and explain it to them?”
I Want to See Angels Too!
Often my friends ask me, "How do I see angels? I want to
see angels too, but I'm not a seer!" First Corinthians 14:1 says, "Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy" (NIV). It says that we are to desire the gifts—plural. This means that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit
are available to us and we are supposed to eagerly go after them! Although it's encouraging to hear stories and testimonies of God doing amazing signs and wonders through others' lives, unless it provokes us to desire to see the same gifts, signs, and wonders
manifesting in our lives, it's just an inspirational story without carrying any impartation.
So I always encourage people to go after seeing angels! Sometimes angels don't just show up like, "Boom! Here I am!" There have been times when
I've just seen glimpses of angels dancing or moving through the room during a church service or during worship. I may just see flashes of light moving about the room. Other times, I've seen glimpses of their wing tips fluttering, and then it's gone. Also,
sometimes I have seen an appearance of a glowing shadow behind speakers, and I know that it is an angelic presence.
Angelic encounters can also be in closed visions and dreams. Many times, with my eyes shut during worship, I'll see an
image of an angel moving toward me or planted somewhere in the room on guard. Or, with my eyes closed, I'll have a vision of an angelic presence walking by me or coming up behind me.
1. There are certain steps to having
an angelic encounter that I recommend.Try personalizing and praying the following activation prayer daily [below], and also ask a mentor to be praying for you to have angelic encounters.
2. If you can find someone who has been known to
see angels, ask them to pray over you and impart to you this gift. It says in the Bible to go after the gifts, right? Well, then, get courageous and boldly go and ask that person to pray for you. (I recommend this for desiring any of the different gifts.)
3. Angelic activity is often present during powerful worship. I can't tell you how many times I have seen angels dancing around when worship is present! Worship ushers us into the presence of the King, so either start worshiping and praising
or play some strong worship music.
4. Begin to get curious! Close your eyes. Once you've been able to get into a meditative state, ask the Lord to show you a vision of an angel. If you have a hard time getting away from your own thoughts
and are feeling distracted, turn off the lights in the room. Note down if you sense any presence. Often people have shared with me that they could sense an angelic presence before they could see it. This might be your starting point also. Now, try opening
your eyes, wherever you are, and see if you can see or sense anything in the room. Even if it's a small start, note it down. Great things come from small beginnings!
Next time you try to encounter an angel, see if you can see the same
thing and ask the Lord to reveal to you a little more. Note down anything you sense or encounter, including visions or dreams you may have. Ask God also for angelic encounters in your dreams too!
5. If you have an angelic encounter, ask
the angel his/her name. Often the names have meaning and might give insight.
Precious Lord, right now I just ask You to fill the reader with wonderment, curiosity, and childlike faith to begin to
see and encounter angels. As You have opened my eyes time and time again to see into the supernatural and witness angels, I pray that there would be an impartation that happens right now in the spirit of the person reading this book. I pray for a release of
angelic activity around the reader. Lord, increase their dream life also. I pray for supernatural surprises for the reader. Lord, release Your angels to come and encounter this person.
Even now I pray against and bind any form of warfare
that may be presently blocking their senses from experiencing the supernatural in the Blood of the Lamb. Father, increase their sensitivity to Your presence. Open their spiritual eyes to see more right now in the name of Jesus Christ. We love You and thank
You, God. Amen.

I AM Your Hiding Place . . .
By Eric Maison
The Father says
today, I Am your hiding place until the winds of change complete its work. Allow for my angels to sing songs of liberty and deliverance over you. You will be free and free indeed, says God. All the heaven’s host are not resting until what concerns you
is perfected, and you’re firmly established in your land which flows with milk and honey. You’re coming into this rest, but there’s pressure.
The pressure is indicative of a breakthrough. Use the pressure to your
advantage and press into the kingdom. Let your mouth pray and praise, for this is the vehicle that drives you to the breakthrough and expected end, says the Father.
Beloved, what do you see at these eleventh hours? Know that what you see
is what you get. See your land that is promised with the eyes of faith and be ready to possess it. You’re ready when you no longer see the hurdles and are not bothered by the antics of the opposition, but rather see them as opportunities and possibilities
to enter in, says God.
I have the real you covered from the eyes that pry, and I Am watching your every move. You will not come to any harm, so trust in Me and don’t be afraid. You may be weak from the shenanigans of wars and
warfare, but let the weak say, I am strong. Change is here and now, and it is happening whether you feel it or not, says the Father.
RISING ABOVE THE STORM
By Elaine Tavolacci
This afternoon I was thinking about all the storms that the body of Christ has endured the past few years.
Some feel as if the warfare has been relentlessly increasing. We’ve been beaten, battered and bruised as the storms raged against us. We’ve experienced challenges from our government, our leaders, our families and even our churches. We’ve
even experienced friendly fire from within our own camps. But through it all, we know that the Word of God says that the Lord will not give us more than we could bear. It also says that He will make a way of escape for us. I feel that there are more storms
on the horizon in the days ahead, but Jesus wants to strengthen us to rise above every one of them.
The Holy Spirit gave me this powerful word today. I was reading Isaiah chapter 40 in the Passion translation. Verse 28 says: “Don’t
you know? Haven’t you been listening? Yahweh is the one and only everlasting God, the Creator of all you can see and imagine! He never gets weary or worn out. His intelligence is unlimited; he is never puzzled over what to do! He empowers the feeble
and infuses the powerless with increasing strength. And verse 31 which most of us are familiar with says (TPT): They will rise up on soaring wings and fly like eagles, run their race without growing weary, and walk through life without giving up.”
An eagle knows when a storm is approaching. All the other birds take cover and try to hide when they see the dark clouds rolling in, except the eagle. The eagle flies to a high altitude and waits for the winds to come. When the storm hits,
it uses the strong winds to glide upwards and over the storm. They have a special ability to fly efficiently and to great distances with minimal effort. Larger eagles, like golden eagles and bald eagles, can fly high enough to rise above
the storm clouds. They have been observed at elevations of up to 11,000 feet, the altitude that many small planes fly at.
Eagles have extraordinary vision. They could spot moving prey at a distance of up to three miles away. Their eyes
are on the side of their head which gives them a 340-degree visual field compared to a humans 180 degrees. They have excellent peripheral and binocular vision. It is said that some eagles could swoop downward at speeds of up to 200 miles an hour to attack
their prey. They build their nests up high to protect their chicks, and be safe from predators such as foxes. When an eagle and a snake are in a conflict, the eagle always wins. The Lord used the analogy of the eagle in Isaiah to represent the strength and
determination of His people.
The Lord is raising up believers with the eyes of an eagle to be able to see from a higher place. He’s raising up watchman on the wall who will not look at things in the natural, but they will discern
by the Holy Spirit. They will have the zeal and tenacity to carry out His plans because they are seated with Him in heavenly places and know their authority as a believer. Some will be commissioned to go into new territory and take back the land for the kingdom
of God. Some will be placed in governmental positions to take back the nations. Jesus has given every believer authority to change and reverse the demonic agenda of the enemy through prayer and fasting.
The Lord is strengthening His people
to rise above every storm no matter how severe it may be. They will have the boldness to go forward no matter what comes against them. He has given them power over the enemy and nothing by any means shall harm them. He is calling those who are unwavering in
faith to strengthen those around them. They don’t allow the tempestuous wind to throw them off course and are not moved when the wind changes direction. They will not waver in their beliefs but they will keep their eyes on Jesus knowing that He’s
made a way of escape in every storm.
Isaiah 40:28-31 (TPT)
“Don’t you know? Haven’t you been listening? Yahweh is the one and only everlasting God, the Creator of all you can see and imagine! He never
gets weary or worn out. His intelligence is unlimited; he is never puzzled over what to do! He empowers the feeble and infuses the powerless with increasing strength. Even young people faint and get exhausted; athletic ones may stumble and fall. But those
who wait for Yahweh’s grace will experience divine strength. They will rise up on soaring wings and fly like eagles, run their race without growing weary, and walk through life without giving up.”
your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagles.
