By Priscilla Van Sutphin
I heard the above words then…
Still small voice:
“There is a peace that will come in the midst of the storm like in the eye of a hurricane. You will be calm & assured in the midst of any darkness because I am in you & I will perfect TRUST in you for My provision. So don’t
give place to worry. No matter what you lack, I can cover your need.
So appropriate My shalom in the midst of what’s going on around you, because you know Who wins!
My FIREY LOVE will
overtake you so that you will be able to Have perfect peace even when death is stalking you. You have AUTHORITY over murderous spirits you know!!! I gave you authority by My blood & declarations, so reread them & gain confidence that I WILL back you
Stay ALERT to the strategies of the enemy. If you don’t have peace going somewhere then stop & pray. Don’t go without My peace.
My firey LOVE will drown out the voices of darkness that try
to muddle your minds. My LOVE will destroy the strongholds over your mind & heart & rout every LIE the enemy has sown. It will set your heart to BURN for My presence more than anything else of this world.
that the enemy has wound itself into your soul will be shattered so that what is ETERNAL will matter more than this world’s worries.”
Heard this song, “If I could turn back time”
Then Lord said,
“I WILL turn back time in a sense
To enable you to fulfill those things I have spoken to you, & to enable this nation to redirect
it’s course to fulfill the goals I have had for it. Your youth will be renewed like the eagle’s that you will have strength & ability to do what I call for you to do, regardless of age. The young will seem older for their
age as I enable them, & the old will drop years. Your health & DNA will be restored WITH JUST A WORD or MY TOUCH!
Electrifying dunamis power will fill you up that you may be a conduit of My power & grace!
Nothing will be the same. “
Holy Spirit will come in

Look for Me beloveds. Cling to Me whenever you feel unsteady for I AM in you & WITH YOU!!!
I will NEVER leave you. I AM A FAITHFUL HUSBAND! Come away with Me My beloveds! In quietness & rest
you will be restored.”
Ephesians 3:16 AMPC
May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy]
Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].
Ephesians 3:17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love
and founded securely on love,
Ephesians 3:18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God's devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];
Ephesians 3:19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness
of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!
Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within
us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]–
Ephesians 3:21 To Him be
glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).
Rev 3:14-22 Tree of life version
To the angel of Messiah’s community in Laodicea
write: “Thus says the Amen, the Faithful & True Witness, the Originator of God’s creation: I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. Oh, that you were either cold or hot! So because you are lukewarm, & neither cold
nor hot, I am about to spew you out of My mouth. For you say, ‘I am rich, I have made myself wealthy, & I need nothing.’ But you do not know that you are miserable & pitiable & poor & blind & naked.
I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may be rich, & white clothes so that you may dress yourself & so the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed, & eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.
Those whom I love, I rebuke & discipline.
Therefore, be zealous & repent. Behold, I stand at the door & knock. If anyone hears My voice & opens the door, I will come in to him & will dine
with him, & he with Me. To the one who overcomes I will grant the right to sit with Me on My throne, just as I myself overcame & sat down with My Father on His throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Ruach is saying to Messiah’s

POWERFUL PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE OF (9)…AND HOW ITS SPEAKING TO THE NATIONS,…; “BIRTHING,..JUDGEMENT,..THE RISE OF A NEW KINGDOM ERA AND THE WORKS OF SORCERY BEING OVERTHROWN”..!
By Veronika West
It was brought to my attention yesterday as King Charles delivered his Speech that the video was EXACTLY (9 minutes) long,…again I believe seeing these things through a prophetic lens we see that
once again that even the length of the video is highly significant,…and speaks to what’s prophetically unfolding and how God is Aligning Nations,…
The Number 9 is highly significant in the Word of God,..the
number is seen (49) times in Scripture,
This highly significant number (9)…will often symbolize “divine completeness…the meaning of FINALITY.
(9) also speaks
of BIRTHING AND OR JUDGMENT,..(9) is one of those numbers with a double meaning,…it can also speak to even a simultaneous move of God.
Our Savior died at the ninth hour of the day, or 3 p.m., to make the way
of salvation open to everyone.
…The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) is the only one of God's annual Feast days of worship that requires believers to fast for one day. This special day, considered by many Jews to
be the holiest of the year, begins at sunset on day 9 of the seventh Hebrew month (Leviticus 23:32).
(WE HAVE JUST ENTERED INTO THE SEVENTH MONTH)…Feast of Trumpets…
…The number (9) represents
the nine (9) fruits of God's Holy Spirit, which are Faithfulness, Gentleness, Goodness, Joy, Kindness, Long suffering, Love, Peace and Self-control (Galatians 5:22 - 23).
…The Nine (9) Gifts of the Spirit; The word
of knowledge, increased faith, the gifts of healing, the gift of miracles, prophecy, the discernment of spirits, diverse kinds of tongues, interpretation of tongues.
…What-is also very poignant and interesting is that
I prophesied about,..; A STITCH IN TIME SAVES (9) NINE;..,A PRAYER IN TIME SAVES A NATION FROM JUDGEMENT…; See Prophetic Word and Timeline given concerning the Nation; A NATION SAVED/ A STITCH IN TIME SAVES (9)…
And lastly,…the Number (9) can speak to SORCERY…and what’s interesting about this is that I shared at the very beginning of 2022…that we would see the works of Sorcery moving powerfully but it would be overthrown by the JAWS OF
…. Word Given on December 4, 2021: A Spiritual Show Down – Let My People Go!
The LORD has given me powerful words for 2022. He gave me the
first word at the beginning of December.
..I heard the Spirit say, “Sheep nations in [an] exodus shall be led by a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. For My glory shall overshadow them and My fire shall
protect and preserve them. I shall lead them to the land I have promised them!”
The LORD then led to me the book of Exodus and took me to the portion where Aaron’s rod turned into a snake and swallowed up the
other rods that had turned into snakes; the ones which belonged to the magicians and sorcerers of Pharaoh (see Exodus 7:8-12).
Consider also the budding of Aaron’s rod: Hebrews 9:4 tells us that Aaron’s rod remained
in the Ark of the Covenant as a testimony of God’s choice of Aaron and Moses to lead His people. Aaron’s rod was also a reminder that God does not put up with rebellion against Himself or His chosen representatives on Earth (see 1 Corinthians 10:10).
Then I heard The LORD say this concerning 2022: “Listen for a cry of ‘Let My people go’ [that] will reverberate across the nations of the earth. For a great spiritual showdown has begun between the power and
authority of the key of David vs. the power and authority of the counterfeit spirits of Leviathan. See! For it will be a showdown between satan’s smoke and mirrors vs. beholding the power of God’s glory made manifest in the nations of the earth.
For ruling counterfeit spirits of light will seek to mimic and masquerade as the real and the genuine in the midst of the undiscerning and those [who] have chosen religion over intimate relationship.
listen and take heed and fear not and think it not strange. For My ways are not your ways, and My thoughts are not your thoughts. For I will harden their hearts [so] that I may display the powers of My glory in the nations of the earth. Watch and pray! For
have I not said, ‘Be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves’?
Watch! For now is the time when My governmental hand of justice and judgment will move to strike down the counterfeit powers of the serpent
spirit of Leviathan that rages over the birthrights and destinies of the nations of the earth.
“Watch, for I say to you: the authority of the key of 22:22 shall be in your mouth, and you shall bind and loose, and He
shall open and none shall shut; and He shall shut and none shall open. For the powers of the serpent spirit of Leviathan shall be swallowed up by the jaws of My truth, My righteousness, My justice and My victory!”
I heard the Spirit speak these things to me, He then quickened to me the book of Isaiah, the 11th chapter. As I went to read the 11th chapter, which speaks of the seven-fold Spirits of God, I heard these words:
for My 11th hour kings and high priests are rising in this hour. For a divine convergence of the power of My seven Spirits is now taking place. For I shall pour out a double portion of My anointing upon the heads of My servant kings and high priests in this
Then The LORD quickened to me the 22nd chapter of Isaiah (Isaiah 22:22) which says, “I will give him the key to the house of David—the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors,
no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.“
Then He led me to Matthew 16:19: “I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you bind on Earth will
be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth will be loosed in Heaven.”
Then the Spirit of Revelation took me back to Isaiah 22:22 and I heard these words: “For 2022 shall be a year of the key of David
being laid upon the shoulders of My righteous remnant, and they shall rule and reign in the kingly anointing of David that shall break and shatter to pieces the heavy yoke of oppression and deception over the nations of the earth.”
The LORD showed
me a powerful, prophetic parallel between the word for 2022 (the spiritual showdown between the power and authority of the key of David vs. the power and authority of the counterfeit spirits of Leviathan) and the vision of the fatted calf being prepared for
sheep nations that will return in repentance.
I saw that as prodigal nations returned to the altar, they received the kingly robe, the key of David and a gold signet ring. This all symbolizes the governmental authority of
the key of David. Sheep nations will begin to rule and reign in great power and victory over the antichrist spirit that will arise to govern over goat nations! We will see that the powers of the serpent spirit of Leviathan will be swallowed up by the jaws
of truth, righteousness, justice and victory.
(9)…The Old Testament there are at least 9 groups or individuals who practiced sorcery. Although modern culture and entertainment tends to paint
those who practice such 'black arts' in a benign or even positive light (e.g. stories and movies directed at children), the motives of Old Testament sorcerers was evil to the core. These groups or individuals are the following.
1) God promised to punish
the Egyptians and to destroy the counsels of their charmers, conjurers, magicians and those who cast spells (Isaiah 19:3,11 - 12).
2) Egypt's Pharaoh called upon his sorcerers and magicians to confront the miracles God was doing through Moses and Aaron
(Exodus 7:11, 22; 8:7,18).
YOU ARE MY KEY HOLDER
BY Deborah Waldron Fry
Heard, "You are My Key Holder. The chains that once
bound you will now bind the evil ones! It is the Year of the Lord's Favor! What what you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and what you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven!”
You have been given the KEYS
of the kingdom. The keys that loosed you are in your hands now. They are the King's Keys! It is the Master's Key! Go, Warrior of God, set the captives free. What the enemy meant for evil, God turns it for good. That addiction you fought, that sickness you
battled, the poverty and lack you have struggled with, that depression that held you captive, NOW you shall use the same keys that set you free to free others! God says,"They are in your hands!"
"Beloved. I am He that
lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the Keys of hell and of death. I have given you a Gift. I have given you the Master Key of the Kingdom. I am the Key and I hold the Keys of the Kingdom. My Keys bind the enemy and loose
My people. Even before the King's Key turns the lock, the chains will break, they will explode with Glory, from the Resurrection Power contained in those keys!
"This is the Time of Favor, and I will answer your prayers
and in this Day of Salvation I will help you, Dear One. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. With this very same Compassion you shall say to the prisoners, ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Show yourselves!" For My Spirit is upon you.
I have anointed you to proclaim LIBERTY to the captives, to heal the brokenhearted, to BREAK every chain by the Power of My Might!
"You shall set free the oppressed and bind the works of darkness. You are the serpent
threaders and the snake stompers and you shall rise up on wings as Eagles for the Lord is with you! What you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. You are My Key Holder! You are My Chain
Breaker! You have the Keys to the Realm of Heaven! Whatever you proclaim to be unlawful, whatever you prohibit on earth shall be prohibited and unlawful in heaven. Do not stand for the enemy's lies and tricks. You shall tie him up and you shall take back your
authority as My Royal Heir!
"You are of God, My Child, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. Oh, it is time to FLY in the Freedom purchased for you! You shall
put an end to the devil's hold on people and you shall release them into My Freedom. You shall annul the agreements and dissolve the bonds of evil. For this reason I commission you now, My Warrior. You shall rule and reign over the powers of darkness, for
GREATER is He who is in you than he who is in the world.
" The Son of Man was bound so that you can now be free! You shall annul the authority of the devil in your life and in others' lives by My Name and My Word. Use
your Royal Keys, Beloved! By Grace, you shall set the captives free. Bind the enemy and no longer be captive to his lies. Even before you call, I will answer, and while you are still speaking, I will hear. I say, BE LOOSED! The Chains shall fall before the
Key is even in the lock, the yoke shall be destroyed because of the Anointing! It is the Acceptable Year of the Lord! It is the Year of the Lord's Favor!"
KEYS OF THE KINGDOM: Strong's Greek
932: Literal KEY, From basileus; properly, royalty, i.e. rule, or a realm. Keys to the Realm. Keys of heaven: Strong's Greek 3772: from the same as oros; the sky; by extension, heaven; by implication, happiness, power, eternity; especially, the Gospel.
BIND: Strong's Greek 1210: To bind, tie, fasten; I impel, compel; Declare to be prohibited and unlawful.
LOOSE: Strong's Greek 3089: A primary verb; to 'loosen'. Annul, break, untie, nullify, declare invalid (an official
agreement, decision, or result). Release, put an end to. To loose any person or thing from bondage.
Today is the 12th. TWELVE is the number of God's government!
"For to us a child is born, to us a Son is given; and the GOVERNMENT shall be upon His SHOULDER, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and of peace there will be
no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this."
Have you been
seeing 2's? (Isaiah 22:22, see below) It is a sign that you hold the keys, Child of God,
"I will place on His SHOULDER (see Isaiah 9:6 above) the KEY to the house of David. What He opens no one can
shut, and what He shuts no one can open."
"I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever
you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
"He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death and broke their bands apart.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
"Praise be to the
God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us all in our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
"And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me
to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; 19 To proclaim the acceptable (favorable) year of the Lord.”
what the LORD says: “In the time of favor I will answer You, and in the day of salvation I will help You; I will keep You and appoint You to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land, to apportion its desolate inheritances, 9to say to the prisoners,
‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Show yourselves.’ They will feed along the pathways, and find pasture on every barren hill. 10They will not hunger or thirst, nor will scorching heat or sun beat down on them. For He who has compassion
on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water.”
1 John 4:4
"You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world."

Be a Nice Person
By Greg Laurie
“Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.”
Every now and then, cell phone videos showing someone on a rant pop up on social media or the news. The people in those videos are really upset about something, and they’re screaming and yelling. Don’t
be like those people. Ever.
You are a child of God, so be known for your generosity. Be known for your love and compassion, not for your anger. The Bible tells us, “Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say
be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them” (Ephesians 4:29 NLT).
If you disagree with someone, that’s fine. But don’t be obnoxious; be nice. I’ve found that the greatest
joys in life come from a relationship with God and from relationships with others. Also, some of the simplest joys in life are before us every day. Savor the sunset. Enjoy the meal. Linger with your family and friends. Have fun.
often, we’re thinking about what’s coming next: “When this comes, I will be so happy. When that happens, it will be so great.” But what about the present moment? Don’t be in such a rush to get to the next thing.
I sometimes find myself in a group where everyone is on their cell phone. In such situations, I send everyone a text that says something like this: “Be here now. Let’s put these phones away. Let’s have a conversation with each other.”
When you sit down for a meal, don’t take your cell phone to the table. If you’re wearing a watch that sends you alerts, take it off. Have a conversation with the people around you.
As followers of Jesus Christ,
let’s be known as encouragers, not discouragers. Let’s be known as people who build others up, not as people who tear others down.

MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
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
The Faith Walk
4 of 4]
*____I Corinthians 2:12 declares, "But we received not the spirit of the world (that is the spirit of the natural man( but the spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that are freely given us of God.”
____Our spirits, that have received their life from God, are able to know the things of God: while the natural minds, dominated by the senses, are unable to know the things that are freely given to us in the Redemptive work of
Christ. The natural man cannot understand the expression "in Christ or ;what it means, but the God-taught. recreated spirit grasps it with eager joy. We can see now that the greatest need of the present day church is the renewing of the minds of the believers,
and of the education and development of the recreated spirit.
____The average Christian today is carnal, or sense ruled. They are babes in Christ. They walk after the manner of men, or the senses. They have never learned
the way of love.
____They are full of talk, but they are not doers of the Word. Their wisdom is the wisdom of natural men. They are ever striving, but never arriving. There is only one way to help these people, and that is
to teach them how to take their place in Christ, to become doers of the Word, and not hearers only.
REFLECTIONS OF THE FATHER'S HEART
By Glenn H. Jackson
[Exhortations From The Father]
* Trust is an act of the heart [one's spirit].
...."When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You".... Psalm 56:3
...."He/she who gives attention [preeminence] to the Word shall find good, and blessed is he/she who trusts in the Lord".... Proverbs 16:20 NASB
ARE YOU CONSIDERING A BIG DECISION
BY LANCE WALLNAU
Are you considering a big decision? You
may be unsure of how to proceed. I have a few points for you to ponder as you weigh this next step.
First, ask: “Is this an issue for analysis or intuition?”
Tom Davenport, professor at
Babson College shared these important tips:
1. “If it’s a decision that’s important, RECURRING, and amendable to improvement, you should invest in gathering data, doing analysis, and examining failure
2. “If it’s a decision you will only make once, or if for some reason you CAN’T GET DATA or improve the decision-making process, you might as well go with your experience and intuition.”
Notice that Tom Davenport divides analysis and intuition. It seems to me that the obvious way to AMPLIFY this is to…
Go to a few people who you consider to possess wise counsel. Seek
their analysis and experience and even intuition.
This can make your life so much easier!
A while back there was a woman who was promising me all kinds of things regarding financial support. She was inexperienced in
business and I wanted to help her get on her feet and poured a lot of time and TLC into helping her.
In the middle of all this I was flying to Dallas with an experienced financial investor. I shared my story and
he told me, “I have all kinds of flags going off about this woman right now.”
His advice? “Don’t get your heart wrapped around this.” His discerning, experience and intuition
were all going off like early warning alarms. His counsel helped prepare me for what followed shortly afterward…she was unstable and probably delusional. My friend helped me consider, “What if I am wrong about her?”
am pretty intuitive or prophetic about certain things. However, in this experience I learned something. You are not prophetic in an area where you are wanting something to happen. Your objectivity is skewed. Labor hard to get your
will, your desire, your soul into a place of objectivity—the place where your hands are off the scales.
Nothing is more important than “people” choices. Who you let into your garden—into your home—and
who you keep out, is a matter of utmost importance. One of the secrets to brilliant decision making in this area was given by the Apostle Paul. He said that decisions regarding deacons in the church should come with a period of testing. “And
let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.” (1 Timothy 3:10)
What did Paul have in mind?
Practically speaking, when you are thinking about putting a person in a key role, you
need to allow time for a test. The simplest way to do this, is to factor in a delay in which you pray for God to show you anything you need to know about this person. It may not be a deal breaker, but it is implied that God will
help you discover what you need to discover.
The same applies to any other big decision. If possible, factor in time sufficient to let what’s hidden come to the surface.
Be encouraged. The Lord has given
us what we need to make
"Arise and Become! Crossing Over in Transition"
By Dr. Sandie Freed
Doesn't it appear like we are all having to embrace a continual change? According to statistics, most people don't like change at all. We might think we do, but when it gets right to the point of embracing anything new, it becomes uncomfortable.
The point is this: We like to know where we are going. We may need to experience something different, but we want to know what that "different" looks like, right?
Unfortunately, our soulish issues (fear, insecurity, worry, anxiety, fear
of failure, etc.) arise when we are led to untraveled and unfamiliar paths. When we are uncertain or unclear during times of transition, we feel unstable. Many falter during transition due to the temptations of the soul (the flesh).
dear ones, as God's Kingdom advances, more transitioning and changing is required. Trusting the Lord is mandatory for an advancing army if victory and breakthrough are to be experienced. He alone knows the strategy needed for each of us at this time. Keep
reading – I'm going somewhere with this, and I know that what God has shown me will empower you as you shift into greater fulfillment.
What the Great I Am Says About You
Many times in our mind, we can envision
ourselves finally arriving and experiencing our breakthrough. Whether it is our healing, a financial shift, our kids coming home, our children delivered from addictions, our fulfillment, etc., our breakthrough keys involve trusting the Lord in all things –
especially in His directives, so that we get from "here" to "there." We are in a shift, but to get there we must change and transition. We all want to get to "there," right?
Where is this place you may ask? I'm referring to your land –
your land of promise. The Israelites had their Promised Land. Today, we study it as Canaan, the land of the giants that would have to be overthrown, and a land of rest that God had promised His children. Today it doesn't necessarily represent a literal land
(although for some of us it could); mostly it is a promise.
Our "land of promise" is the soil of our lives in which God was planted His Word (His seed), and that soil produces the promise that has been sown into it by Him. It could have
come in the form of a Scripture that God spoke to your heart, a prophetic word given to you, or in the form of a dream or a minister through which God spoke. Regardless of how you heard it or received it, it was a promise from God in seed form, which was released
into the land of your heart to produce your “there"!
In this season, much is being revealed concerning our spiritual identity. We must remember who we really are. We are who He says we are. Let that sink in. Yes, the great I AM says,
"You ARE"! You are who God says you are, and only the I AM can get you there. What I mean by this is that He always persuades us that we are His sons. Romans 8:14 reminds us of this truth: "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.”
The word "sons," here, refers to all of us, both male and female. In biblical times, it was a son who would receive the family inheritance and not a daughter. But in Christ, we each have been given a royal inheritance – all being "sons"
of a loving Father. As children of our natural parents, it may have been difficult to trust them, but our heavenly Father is trustworthy and faithful. Our natural parents may have let us down, but God never does!
Because of His faithfulness,
we can stand firmly on His promises. His promises include divine protection, direction, provision and His continual presence in our lives. He truly is the Promise Keeper – the One we can fully trust, especially during times of change and transition.
Transition and Crossing Over – AGAIN!
The other week I spoke to our church concerning Joshua chapter 1, when the Lord was instructing Joshua to arise and cross over the Jordan River. It was another transition time
for him, as well as for the entire nation of Israel. But, for Joshua to follow God, he had to first rise before he could take any steps in the right direction of destiny.
When we experience difficult seasons, we get down and depressed,
and often a spirit of hopelessness overtakes us. But again, if we want to move forward, we have to arise, trust and follow God! Every transition time requires an arising time.
Joshua chapter 1 tells us that it was a difficult time for
Joshua and for all of Israel. Why? Because Moses was dead. He went up a hill one day and never returned. Joshua and the people of Israel were so devastated. They mourned and lamented this loss for thirty days (Deuteronomy 34:8). Can you imagine their thoughts?
Questions like these must have gone through their minds:
• Who is going to lead us now?
• No one is as powerful as Moses!
• Who can compare to the man, Moses, the one that God has used to speak
to us all these years?
• Who will intercede for us now? Who will feed us or give us water?
• Moses was the only one who could hear from God for us. Who can we possibly trust now?
Moses, their previously anointed
leader, was dead, and now they had a new leader and a new direction. Change. Transition. They were afraid!
Yet, it was Joshua who was anointed by God to lead His people forward. He was chosen by God to fill the shoes of Moses. He had previously
been Moses' servant and assistant but was now the point man. His transition required that he rise and embrace an identity transition to step into a territorial transition. It is the same for us today.
Arise and Become!
I have been prophetically speaking into the revelation of our spiritual DNA and identity for a long time now. Without repeating what has been proclaimed about our spiritual identity, let me be blunt for the sake of this article: We must arise and become!
This is our only way to cross over in this season!
The Lord understood Joshua's challenge! Because Joshua was probably intimidated, unready and uncertain, the Lord told Joshua three different times to be strong and courageous. He needed
to regain the strength and courage that he had once had! If you recall, around forty years prior, when sent as spies into the Promised Land, it was Caleb and Joshua who returned with a good report, saying that they were well able to take the land. Even though
Joshua saw giants in the Promised Land, he fully trusted in God to give them the victory!
However, during the next forty years in the wilderness, he endured the death of an entire generation. He now faced the challenge of raising up an
entirely new generation of warriors who didn't even know how to fight! He needed courage because to look at their situation in the natural, it would appear somewhat hopeless. Joshua had performed zero miracles, and there was no outward demonstration of God's
glory and power upon Joshua's life. How would Joshua convince the people to listen and follow his lead?
Think now about all that Joshua may have been thinking and telling God: Lord, these people are going to compare me with Moses! I am
not a Moses! Moses was an awesome leader, God. Don't You recall all he did?
• Moses had an awesome rod! ALL I HAVE IS THIS SWORD.
• Moses turned the Nile into blood.
• You used him to proclaim plagues in Egypt.
• He led Your people forth in the Exodus.
• He parted the Red Sea, and they crossed over on dry land.
• He brought forth water from a rock – from a ROCK! And more...
• God! I don't think I can do all that!
Joshua knew He couldn't fill Moses' shoes. Everything was changing and they were in huge transition. It was the beginning of a new season. The old was gone the new was there.
He Promises His Presence
How did Joshua get the strength to arise? How did He rise with the courage that was needed to lead an entire nation into new territory? It was because of this: God promised to be with him!
If you carefully study
Joshua 1, you'll notice in verse 5 that God assured him, "...Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you."
In verses 6-9 God charged Joshua with these directives:
1) Be strong
and be courageous
2) Be obedient
3) Follow His directives
4) Do not be afraid or dismayed
In verse 9, God said these words that sealed the deal for Joshua: "...for the LORD your God will be with you wherever
you go." Joshua would lead God's people because He became strong and courageous. He became obedient. He became a leader who trusted and followed. Joshua became who God said he would be as His leader: strong, courageous, obedient and one who followed His directives.
But, even more importantly, He trusted God in the transition, because as God was faithful with Moses, He was now promising to be faithful with him.
It is the same with us today. We are in transition in so many ways, but the main transition
we are experiencing is the process of becoming who God says we are! If we are believing to be healthy, we are trusting God for our healing. But it's more than that! It about becoming the healed one!
Transitioning from a place of sickness
to a land of health may require a miracle, yes. And aren't we thankful for that? Absolutely. But, ultimately, it is a transition, a change and a transformation process of fully becoming ALL that God intends for us to become!
Been This Way Before!
In Joshua 3, we read that it was time for them to cross the Jordan. As God directed, the priests carrying the ark of God were to go first over the Jordan. The ark was symbolic of God's presence; so the Lord was demonstrating
to His people that His presence was going before them, as He had promised to be with them. Joshua told the people, "...When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the Levitical priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions
and follow it. Then you will know which way to go, since you have never been this way before..." (Joshua 3:3-4).
The people were to fix their gaze on the ark of the covenant, for God redirected the focus of their journey from their uncertainties
to His constancy. He was saying this: "I know you haven't done this before, but if you keep your eyes on Me, I'll show you the way.”
His Presence Is More Important Than His Presents
It was God's way of saying,
once again, "As I was...so I will be." The God "who is and who was and who is to come" (Revelation 1:4) still promises the same for us today. If His presence goes with us, how can we fail? Where He goes, His glory goes. For so many decades we have focused
on His gifts – His "presents" (gifts to the Church) – and yet it is His presence in which He is asking us to trust. For years, we have focused on our "land." But, if we will keep our eyes fixed on His presence and cry out for it, He will give us
the land! We may have never been this way before, but we can enter the rest of knowing this: "As I was...so I will be…"
My Prayer for Us
Father God, empower us to seek after You and Your divine presence. You
promised Joshua that You would lead him and that You would be with him. You promised to be with him just as You were with Moses. That promise empowered Joshua to be able to rise, take courage and become Your leader. Lord, we each believe that in our time of
transition, as we cross into our new territory and full destiny, You are with us! You will empower us to become who You say that we are.
We take courage and arise, knowing that Your presence goes before us. We honor You, trust You and
love You. As we remain fixed on You, we trust that You will never leave or forsake us, and all that You have promised to do, You will surely do. As we all transition, we are determined to be strong and courageous and advance Your Kingdom. In the mighty name
of Jesus I pray, amen!

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
Words of prophecy:
cannot "confess" [either through writing or speaking on an ongoing basis] words that are apart from a revelation of My Word/Will without coming to "believe" them [in fear] as "truth" at some point. This
is exactly what the Enemy is attempting to establish in one's life - lying mind-sets that, if held to, will produce great darkness [blindness] in their thinking.
it is of the utmost importance for each and every one of My precious children to come to the deep realization [both gain and maintain a deep revelation in their heart] that Satan's "power" was stripped completely from him at Calvary
- and, thus, the reality of the situation is that My Dear Son [the Word of God] has given them TOTAL authority over him, and his vile schemes.
righteousness you will be established; You will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; And from terror, for it will not come near you. If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you. Behold, I Myself
have created the smith who blows the fire of coals and brings out a weapon for its work; And I have created the destroyer to ruin. No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the
heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their vindication is from Me,' declares the LORD".... Isaiah 54:14-17 NASB
____...."God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love [trust],
and of a sound mind".... 2 Timothy 1:7 Young's Literal Translation
...."Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy,
and nothing will injure you".... Luke 10:19 NASB
...."Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, all authority [all power of rule] in heaven and on earth has been
given to Me. Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days [perpetually,
uniformly, and on every occasion], to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen [so let it be]".... Matthew 28:18-20 The Amplified Translation
____There are many of God's children who still maintain a "predisposition"
with the "world" [and its ways] and the deeper things of Satan [the schemes and plans being formulated by the "spirits of antichrist] - and, thus, they ignore [disregard] the Father's true plan for a ["spotless
and unblemished"] Glorious Church and the deeper mysteries of the Kingdom and Eternity.
"predisposed" - to give an inclination or tendency to beforehand;
...."We know [positively] that we are of God, and [that] the whole world [system] around us is under the power of the evil one".... 1 John 5:19 The Amplified Translation
spirit which does not acknowledge and confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh [but would annul, destroy, sever, disunite Him] is not of God [does not proceed from Him]. This [nonconfession] is the [spirit] of the antichrist, [of] which you heard that
it was coming, and now it is already in the world. Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater [mightier] than he who is in the world"....
1 John 4:3-4 The Amplified Translation
...."Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the
Word, that He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things [that she might be holy and faultless]".... Ephesians 5:25-27 The Amplified Translation
seek [aim at and strive after] first of all His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right]".... Matthew 6:33 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that we are "predisposed" towards Your Kingdom and NOT kingdom of darkness - and the wisdom of the world that lies therein. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory.
____...."[the activation of] Death and [the activation of] life are in the power of the tongue".... Proverbs 18:21a NASB
this reason also, since the day we heard [of it,] we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please
[Him] in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has
qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. For He rescued us [past tense] from the domain of darkness, and transferred us [past tense] to
the kingdom of His beloved Son".... Colossians 1:9-13 NASB
____...."I sought the LORD, and He answered me, and delivered me [past tense] from all my fears. They looked to
Him and were radiant, and their faces will never be ashamed".... Psalms 34:4-5 NASB
This is for All people in the whole world . . . :
James Version (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he
gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
