Keep It in Your Heart
By Greg Laurie
“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
It’s interesting that the apostle Paul
referred to God’s Word as the sword of the Spirit. Writing to the believers in Ephesus, he said, “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17 NKJV).
can be a defensive weapon, but it’s primarily an offensive weapon. A Roman soldier in ancient times used it when he was attacking, when he was stepping in and gaining ground. The same is true of God’s Word.
Speaking to the
prophet Isaiah, God said, “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth
from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:10–11 NKJV).
On the Day of Pentecost, Peter’s message was effective
because it was scriptural. He quoted from a number of Old Testament passages, including Joel 2:28–32, apparently from memory. He didn’t have a scroll that he rolled out. Rather, the Scriptures were in his heart and mind, and he quoted freely from
In the same way, we should commit God’s Word to memory. What shape is your spiritual sword in? Is it polished from daily use as you study the Scriptures on a regular basis? Is it sharpened on the anvil of experience as you
apply its truth and obey it in your life? Or is your sword rusty or dulled by disobedience?
Keep your sword sharp and ready. Know the Word of God, and keep it in your heart.
"God's Covenantal People: An Invitation Into Intimacy"
By Anne Ballard
In the month of October, God
is inviting us into deeper intimacy with Him. There is grace to build community afresh and to develop new friendships. God is providing immediately and supernaturally for our areas of need. Take steps of faith in partnering with God and bringing Him what you
have. It's time to form covenantal relationships where we cover each other in our weaknesses instead of ostracizing those with whom we disagree. This month, ask God for the steps of faith He'd have you take and how to partner with Him in seeing divine shifts
in your life!
Invited into Intimacy
"Then Moses said to Him, 'If Your presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.'" (Exodus 33:15)
We are all created for intimacy, as we are made
in our Father's image. He longs to know us, and to be known by us. So many have become disenchanted by "religion". What is left is a gaping hole in their hearts. Whether they were wounded by the Church in some way, or they've become disenchanted with people
whose failures have become public and known, they are seeking more; and whether they realize it or not, they are seeking a deep relationship.
God put inside of us the desire to know Him and to be known by Him. However, often in the Church
we are taught all about God without truly knowing God the Person (or Jesus or Holy Spirit). Just as with people, we can know all about someone without actually knowing them. For instance, I can know all about a professional athlete without knowing them personally.
The fact that I know all their sports stats does not mean that I have an actual relationship with them. In some cases, the knowledge of God can get in the way of relationship with Him.
Religion makes God impersonal, but the truth is that
God created us for intimate, and intentional relationship. He knows the number of hairs on your head because you are His child. If you have felt distracted, disconnected and weary, this word is for you. If you're feeling raw and disillusioned with religion,
God is inviting you back into an intimate relationship with Him.
Ask God what His next steps are for you to reconnect to His heart. Is He calling you to lay something down for a time? It could be fasting from social media or TV or something
else that has taken the place of your time with Him. Lay that down on the altar and intentionally spend time in His presence – without agenda – simply for the enjoyment of being with Him. He delights in you, just as you delight in Him. Allow your
heart to come back to the sweet enjoyment of His presence.
"For where two or three gather in My name, there am I with them." (Matthew 18:20)
There is power in gathering together.
God designed us to live in connection and community with others. We need each other. The last two years have disrupted many community gatherings and made coming together challenging. Some of us have become disconnected from our community. It is time to return
to gathering together. It could be with your church, but it could also be in other ways. Perhaps it's with a small group; a club around your hobbies such as a book club or a garden club; a close-knit group of friends you've grown distant from; or a women's
group. We are better together. Just as iron sharpens iron, we deeply need what those around us have to offer.
According to researchers, one of the greatest indicators of long life is the quality of our social connections. We were created
to do life in a community. We need people speaking into our lives, offering unique insights and perspectives, and learning and growing alongside us. Be intentional during this season to plug into a community. Many people have moved cities or states in the
past few years, which can make communities feel especially challenging. If you're starting over, don't be intimidated or overwhelmed by building new connections. You're not alone. Instead, choose to be led by the Spirit. God has already placed connections
If you've been feeling isolated, alone and are longing for friends, then this word is for you. If you're struggling with rejection, depression or are new to an area, know that God has placed the desire for community/family
on your heart for a reason. God is highlighting the need to be plugged into a community and He's leading you to that community. Pay attention to what He's bringing to your attention, or the groups that you are being connected with during this season.
Search your heart to discern the direction where God is leading you to build community. Pray about what steps you can take to get involved. Be bold! We can accomplish more and go so much farther when we are aligned with other people.
"Elisha replied to her, 'How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?’
'Your servant has nothing there at all,' she said, 'except a small jar of olive oil.'" (2 Kings 4:2)
God's provision can take many forms. Often, we think of provision as financial and coming in the form of money or dollar bills. However, sometimes provision can look like something else. I recently had an experience where I needed a repair on an air conditioning
unit. The repair company quoted me $1,000. However, my neighbor was actually able to help me for free! In this story, provision wasn't an extra $1,000 for the AC repairman, but provision showed up through my neighbor.
In this Scripture
(2 Kings 4:1-7) is a story of a widow. She came to the prophet Elisha in desperation. Her husband had died and his creditor was demanding repayment. Because she couldn't repay him, the creditor was coming for her sons to enslave them in order to pay the debt.
She had a great and urgent need!
Elisha asked her what she had. She didn't have much, only a small amount of oil. Elisha told her to go to her neighbors and gather up every jar that she could find. He specified, "Don't ask for just a few"
(see verse 3). Not only was he instructing her to anticipate God's provision, he was giving her an action step to take, in order to realize she wasn't powerless.
So she went to the neighbor's house, gathering jars. She filled every jar
until she had not one left to fill. In this case, the Lord supernaturally provided for her so that she could sell what He gave in order to pay her debt.
Sometimes we need to use what we have and the Lord will meet us in that place and
multiply it. God is calling us to look beyond our need to what He's already given us and partner with Him. He's inviting us to use what we have, and watch how He joins us. Could it have been the widow's faith that caused the oil to multiply, or perhaps her
simple act of obedience? In gathering the jars, she was taking a step of faith even though she didn't fully know how God would provide.
If you have a need and don't know what to do, ask God for wisdom! This could be an ongoing need. There
could be some urgency to the need, and perhaps even dire consequences if things don't shift! Yet God is a God of provision and He will show up for you.
God is inviting you to seek Him for His solutions, and to use what you have in your
hand. What has God already provided? What would faith look like in this situation? How could you gather jars like the widow did as an act of faith? God will give you insight and supernatural provision!
"So Jonathan made a covenant with the house of David, saying, 'May the LORD call David's enemies to account.' And Jonathan had David reaffirm his oath out of love for him, because he loved him as he loved himself." (1 Samuel 20:16-17)
In our increasingly "microwave mentality" culture, where video clips get shorter and shorter just to retain people's attention, a true understanding of the biblical meaning of covenant is more and more rare. Throughout the Bible, we see God making covenants
with His people, and we see people making covenants with each other. Although there are different dynamics to each type of covenant, in general, a covenant represented a significant bond (involving families and bloodlines) that was connected to a promise,
and not easily broken, forming the two into one.
Society today (sometimes even within the Church) doesn't really have a grasp on this type of deep, meaningful and lasting relationship. God is calling His people to be set apart from
society, and to be in God-ordained, covenantal relationships. Our thinking about all things must be biblically based, and not a product of or shaped by the world.
On the complete other side of the spectrum is "cancel culture." Cancel culture
is something that is increasingly gaining momentum in this day and age. In cancel culture, if someone offends someone else or does something that the public deems wrong, they get punished by society at large. The one being canceled is usually called out on
social media, then the herd mentality catapults the momentum into the stratosphere where everyone turns on them. In some cases, it can cause a lot of damage to an individual or to a company.
Although it's often called "accountability,"
at its core, "cancel culture" is bullying. There is no legal due process and no formal grievance procedure. The one who's offended becomes the judge and jury and rallies people around them. Can you see how cancel culture and this mindset of tearing others
down, condemning, dividing and breeding hostility is the opposite of the heart of God? What the enemy can't have, he seeks to destroy.
God is calling us, as His people, to be in covenant relationships as a reflection of His heart and purpose
for us. Being holy and set apart, our relationships should look different and be lasting and committed. Please note that I don't think that God is saying that ALL relationships are forever, but I believe He is highlighting some that can go deeper, and some
that may need a renewed commitment. If you have been longing for more in your relationships, begin praying for covenantal relationships. God has put on your heart the importance of community, therefore ask God what relationships to invest more deeply in.
Are there any repairs or restoration that need to happen in your relationships? God may be leading you to the people that He wants you to have covenant relationships with. Ask God to show you where He's leading you, and what steps you can
take to emulate His heart for relationships.
• I am cultivating fresh intimacy with God.
• I am being intentional in my relationships and building community.
• I am bringing what I have
to God and watching Him multiply it.
• God is providing for me in unexpected and supernatural ways.
• I am forming covenantal relationships in connection with the heart of God.

REFLECTIONS OF THE FATHER'S HEART
By Glenn H. Jackson
[Exhortations From The Father]
* It is "revelation" that makes things new.
"new" - of a kind now existing or appearing for the first time;
...."That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will
be done. So there is nothing new under the sun".... Ecclesiastes 1:9 NASB
...."Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ [the Messiah] he is a new creation [a new creature
altogether]; the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!".... 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Amplified Translation
the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things; Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you".... Isaiah 42:9 NASB
...."Behold, I will do something new, now it
will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert".... Isaiah 43:19 NASB
MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
...."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
CHRIST IN THE LIGHT OF THE PAULINE REVELATION [part 1 of
13] * THIS is an unveiling of what we are before the Father, and how the Father looks upon us in Christ. John 16:28: "I came out from the Father, and am come into the world : again, I leave the world, and go unto the Father." You remember Jesus said in John
3:3-5, "Except one be born from above, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
The believer is born of God. He comes out of the very womb of God.
"Whatsoever is born of God overcometh
the world." "For in one Spirit were we all immersed into one body, and were all made to drink of one Spirit." (I Cor. 12:13). Just as truly as Jesus came out from the Father, so we have come out from God through the energy of the Spirit. We are born of God.
In I John 4:4 we read, "Ye are of God my little children." We are a part of the very Life of God. God's very Nature has been poured into our spirits, for we are of God. Now we can understand Jesus' confession.
the Jews. It startled the disciples. "I came out from the Father ; I came into the world: again, I leave the world and go back to my Father." Just as truly as we came out from the Father in our New Birth, when we leave our bodies, we go back to our Father.
In John 8:23 Jesus said, "Ye are from beneath ; I am from above." Jesus was ever conscious of His heavenly origin and of His heavenly relationship.
Nothing would help us so much as to be aware that we do not belong
to the earth. We are on the earth but we are not of it. Our citizenship is in heaven. We are no longer a part of this Satan-ruled world. We are born from above.
The Power of The Voice!
By Faith marie Baczko
On Rosh Hashanah, September 25th we entered the Jewish New Year of 5783. Over this Feast season through Yom Kippur and Sukkot, we are transitioning into a very significant
period of world history that will be very volatile. In 2020, around Rosh Hashanah, I published a word I believe is for this time. It was 5780 at the time and we had entered the decade of the mouth. I wrote:
the number eighty is represented by the letter pey meaning the mouth. We are now entering the time of being perfected in vision in order to speak, decree, and prophecy with a higher level of accuracy
and specificity—A new season thrusting us into a Holy Spirit-inspired boldness to speak forth the Word of God, to impart HIS WILL into all circumstances, spheres, both political, and economic realms.
will be a decade not related to our words and agendas, but rather TO THE VOICE OF THE LORD, HIS WILL, AND HIS AGENDA.
“The voice of the LORD is over the waters; The God of glory thunders;
The LORD is over many waters. The voice of the LORD is powerful; The voice of the LORD is full of majesty. The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars, Yes, the LORD splinters the cedars of Lebanon…The voice of the LORD divides the flames of fire. The voice
of the LORD shakes the wilderness; The LORD shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth, And strips the forests bare; And in His temple everyone says, "GLORY!" Psalm 29
This will be a decade where
we will see prophetic saints DECLARE AND DECREE with an unction supported BY THE VOICE OF THE LORD. This will initiate great breakthrough. THE VOICE OF THE LORD WILL THUNDER OVER THE WATERS, impacting
the seas of many peoples, shifting nations, and governments. THE VOICE OF THE LORD SPLINTERS THE CEDARS, shattering the pride of man—God will shatter and divide the enemy's plans and every proud thing that rises AGAINST HIS WILL! THE
VOICE OF THE LORD DIVIDES WITH FLAMES OF FIRE, STRIKING His targets WITH BOLTS OF LIGHTENING; God will move to strike at the heart of evil, and the occultic conglomerates empowering iniquity in the earth.
THE LORD SHAKES THE WILDERNESS
OF KADESH—Kadesh represents the place of defilement and all sexual uncleanness (see qâdêsh H6946 same as and H6945). The Voice of the Lord will shake the places of immorality on the earth, exposing and revealing
all that is grotesque and horrific in perversion—God will move to release countless captives from these prisons of bondage and multitudes will be set free!
THE VOICE OF THE LORD MAKES THE DEER GIVE BIRTH—this
will be a decade of birthing the promises of God. The Body has been in travail. The number eight represents a new beginning and a door. This will be the decade of birthing God’s New Thing!
In this decade we will see the birth of the Marvels of God and enter the full knowledge of His faithfulness and goodness to mankind. I see a multitude of doors swinging open to new pastures and fields of creativity, innovation, and Ministry, with
the Bright Light of God shining with favor on His people, and everyone will shout, “Glory!"
In the decade of the mouth, prophecy will begin to bubble up in the mouths of God’s people, who declare the
Word of the Lord. The Lord says that this will be a time of extreme acceleration, where His Word will be sent and swiftly move to accomplish His will, and will not return void.
God told Abraham that Israel would be in bondage for four
hundred years and would be set free after the iniquity of the Amorites was complete, or at its fullness. When God was ready to perform this Word, He raised up Moses as a deliverer of His people. Moses protested before God,
saying that He could not speak. God answered him, “Who has made a man’s mouth?” He then tells him, “I will be with your mouth and teach you what to say!” (Ex. 4:10-12). In
Hebrew, the word teach is yarah and means to, flow as water or shoot like an arrow!
GOD PUTS HIS WORDS IN OUR MOUTHS
Jeremiah also told the Lord that He could not speak,
but God answered him: “…you shall go to all to whom I send you, and whatever I command you, YOU SHALL SPEAK. Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you," says the LORD. Then
the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me: "Behold, I have put MY WORDS IN YOUR MOUTH.” (emphasis mine)
“... do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will
speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.” Mark 13:11
God is getting set to release an army of deliverers in
whom is the Voice of GOD! His words will flow as water, releasing life and healing to the dry and parched places; bringing restoration to places defiled and destroyed by iniquity. The Lord will send forth His word from these deliverers—shooting
them like arrows into the enemy’s camp to tear down strongholds, destroying their schemes!
These saints who have submitted to the process of preparation will accelerate with the speed of light. I saw that their internal capacity
to contain the Spirit of God was maxing out, and the internal combustion within them heating up tremendously, making them ready to be thrust out like a rocket into the stratosphere! The anointing coming on
them sends them out with power. The Fire on their feet was getting too hot to stand still anymore. This anointing is the RESURRECTION ANOINTING that is about to break many out of their graves and the dead places. GOD IS THE ‘THRUST!’
He is the Fire, and the Power beneath our feet. There is no stopping it and no turning back!
This anointing will be suddenly and supernaturally pushed out, to advance forcibly in a certain direction.
The word thrust can also mean a forceful attack, a violent lunge with a sharp weapon. The people of God are the sharpened weapons that He will use to destroy His enemy.
also the propulsive force that gives lift-off. God is the thrust and propulsive force of His people, that moves them, sends them, and clothes them with the power to carry out His will. In the decade ahead the people of God will find themselves
suddenly thrust out into new arenas, locked and loaded with the power of the VOICE OF THE LORD. He is saying now as He said to Jeremiah, “I am ready to perform My Word!”
I have put My words in your mouth. I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, TO ROOT OUT AND TO PULL DOWN, TO DESTROY AND TO THROW DOWN, TO BUILD AND TO PLANT." Jeremiah 1:9-10 (Emphasis mine)
the work of God’s apostolic, prophetic people releasing the voice of the Lord, prepared for this hour of history! The Voice speaks, The Voice creates, the voice destroys, the voice transforms, the voice builds. The voice commands the elements,
the voice invites the supernatural. GOD WILL ANSWER WHAT YOU SAY—what you speak!
The Scriptures tell us that everything was made by His Word. EVERYTHING CAN THEREFORE BE UNMADE BY HIS WORD. With them, we can
tear down and destroy, we can build and plant! God’s Word transcends all other words. We are in a war of words both written and decreed. The war has begun. God is teaching us to send His Words into war like Artillery. Artillery is
a class of heavy military ranged weapons that launch munitions far beyond the range and power of infantry firearms it is focused on the ability to breach defensive walls and fortifications during sieges.
I saw a picture of Jesus when
He heard in His Spirit the Father say, Son, it is time! It is time to go! I saw Jesus putting down his tools dusting off His hands and leaving… He left everything behind to walk into His destiny.
believe the Lord is saying to us, it’s time to go! Leave the past behind, close those doors and walk into your Divinely ordained future!
THE GATES OF VICTORY ARE NOW OPEN!
By Lana Vawser
I heard the Lord say:
“THE GATES OF VICTORY ARE NOW OPEN”
The sense surrounded me that the things that the enemy has held back, the things that the enemy has
worked hard to keep God’s people from, from their place of victory, the Lord is now exposing those areas.
There is a significant breakthrough taking place right now, a significant acceleration and momentum of breakthrough
VICTORY that is upon you.
The areas where the enemy has attempted to keep you from the victory that is yours in Christ is now being dismantled. The Lord is showing Himself strong, as your great defender, and you will rise
Do NOT shrink back, the enemy is doing all he can to keep you caged and keep you from the place of manifested victory, but these attacks are now being disarmed and dismantled.
The Lord is releasing specific strategy and divine wisdom in how to combat the attack that is coming against you, and move further into the victory that is already yours in Christ.
The reason the battle is SO strong and
has been so strong is because of the MAGNITUDE of breakthrough victory that is upon you.
You are moving further into your land of victory! Do not shrink back, do not cower in fear, but STAND. Now is the time to stand.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our
struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day
of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”
The gates of victory are now opening over your life, over your family, over cities and nations.
Many of you
are on the brink of the greatest victory that you have ever seen in your life.
IT’S A NEW BIRTHING
As the gates of victory swing wide open in your life releasing the breakthrough and
triumph of Christ in your life in greater ways than you have seen, I saw a NEW SUDDEN BIRTHING taking place.
There will be a SUDDEN birthing of what God has placed within you and set up FOR YOU take place. The battle has
been so much for the seed of destiny and breakthrough that the Lord has placed within you and destined for you. There is a greater manifestation of the abundant life that was given to you in Christ Jesus (John 10:10) that is going to burst forth in greater
ways in your life. There is a great awakening of life and resurrection power that is being released in your life.
YOU WON AND YOU WIN!!!
I had a vision and I saw Jesus standing over every
area in your life that you are believing to see the breakthrough and victory of Christ manifest in your life.
I saw Him standing over those places and the atmosphere was so pregnant with the truth of the Gospel, that Jesus
is Lord and the sense of the victory of Christ and all things that are out of alignment with what He is saying and has decreed, bowing to the name of Jesus Christ.
As I was watching this vision I saw Jesus’ blood pouring
out all over these areas that need breakthrough victory and He spoke:
“I paid for this! YOU WON and YOU WIN!!!”
I saw the words “YOU WON and YOU WIN” being written over every circumstance
and every situation in His blood.
These things will be OVERCOME by the power of the blood of Jesus.
They conquered him completely through the blood of the Lamb.
and the powerful word
of his testimony. – Revelation 12:11 (The Passion Translation)
Taking communion is CRUCIAL right now, and I want to remind you of that again. Taking communion is a VITAL KEY to breakthrough and seeing the manifested
victory of Jesus in your life, right now.
I WILL SHOW YOU WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN OVER YOUR LIFE
I heard the Lord say:
“I will show you what I have written over your life”
The enemy has been working so hard with fear, intimidation, mind fogginess, confusion and discouragement to keep you from “seeing” and “hearing” clearly, what the Lord is saying right now.
The Lord is going to show you what He has written in the book of destiny over your life and your family. In the battle many of you have been having with fear and other things, the Lord will continue to reveal and speak His truth and destiny
over your life.
The fogginess and the smokescreens will begin to clear and you will see with greater vision and insight the plans of God for your life and your families life in the new season we are in.
YOU WILL WRITE ABOUT THIS
I heard the Lord say:
“You will write about this. You will write about this victory” and I saw the scribe anointing falling HEAVILY
upon many of you. What you are walking through now, the battles that you have been fighting, YOU WILL WRITE ABOUT THIS.
There are new books, songs, writings being birthed within you RIGHT NOW as you walk through this battle
that you will write about. The treasures, the wisdom, the insights that you are receiving from the Lord in this time, you will write about these things and many will be encouraged, receive great impartations and breakthrough’s from the huge breaker anointing
that will rest upon these books.
THE ENEMY TRIED TO CAGE YOU, BUT THE LORD IS RELEASING YOU INTO GREATER FAVOR!!
The Lord showed me that through these attacks many of you have been facing,
the enemy is working hard to keep you caged.
The Lord spoke to me:
“The enemy has tried to cage many, but I am now releasing greater favor upon them”
Watch for a significant increase of favor. Watch for significant promotions and the Lord opening doors you could never have dreamed of. It will be so clear why the enemy has been trying so hard to cage you as the Lord continues to open great and mighty
effectual doors and place greater favor upon you.
It’s not a place of trying to make anything happen or striving, but being in the rest of God and surrendered to Him and watch HIM set things up, open doors and opportunities
and strategically place you in places you could never have placed yourself in.
A foreboding spirit of fear has been attacking many of you about the future, but the Lord is decreeing “Get your hopes up for there are
mighty and wonderful surprises upon you. This is the season of DIVINE SUDDENLIES!! You are in your turnaround place. Watch MANY things shift and change overnight!!! My plans for you are GOOD and to prosper you and not to harm you but to give you a hope and
a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
“I am doing what only I can do!!!!!!! Fear has tried to squash and cage you, but My power will ASTONISH YOU!!!”
“5783: Receive Restoration, Renewal of Youth
and Covenantal Provision”
By Dionne White
A Season of Stepping into Governing Authority
We just celebrated Rosh Hashanah, or
“Head of the Year,” which is one of the four Jewish New Years. This is when the Jewish civil calendar begins, and governmental rulings of kings are measured as complete.
This has SO much spiritual
significance right now! Governmental shifts and completions of previous seasons are upon us in the Body of Christ. Many are about to step into their governmental roles, and the Ekklesia is rising in their governing authority. Many
in the Body are coming into the fullness of understanding their identity of righteousness in Christ Jesus; they are stepping into their God-given authority in Christ Jesus, learning to rule in Jesus’ name!
Key to Restoration, Renewal of Youth and Covenant Provision
One of the things I’ve continually been seeing in my dreams and feeling in my spirit is the renewal and restoration of our youth, as
well as covenant provision. Psalm 103:5 states: “He satisfies our mouth with good things, so that our youth is renewed like the eagle’s” (emphasis mine).
I have been speaking and declaring
this Scripture for years! God has shown me that those who believe and confess such truths of His Word like this – HE WILL RESTORE AND RENEW THEM, leading them into an incredibly preserved life of youthfulness! What we confess with our mouths
is important – good or bad, they will be established.
So be encouraged if you have been praying for restoration, renewal and youthfulness. I truly believe it is coming upon you, especially if you have given
yourself to the teachings of the Lord faithfully and declaring them out loud!
The Process of Bearing Witness to What Has Been Established by God
Now moving on to what
I’ve been feeling over this new year 5783… I have some encouragement, but also a word of caution and wisdom.
I have been seeing the numbers “1212” all year long, which biblically signifies God’s
perfect government or authority. To me, it also symbolizes perfect governing authority with a witness to it, because there are two 12s, meaning it is doubled! A ‘doubling’ is like an extra helping, or like putting a
seal of approval on something. Two – two of anything – speaks of a ‘witness’ to something, a helper (person of the Holy Spirit), a union of two single things or a multiplication.
I want to encourage
and caution you with the following word of wisdom as you move into this new time of great outpouring, spiritual activity and authority, with an extra helping of the Holy Spirit! Be armed with the truth of God’s Word and be wise to judge
and weigh properly in these times. God’s Word and the Holy Spirit have the final say!
The Lord’s word, written or spoken (even rhema words released from His heavenly books), has ALREADY BEEN ESTABLISHED.
It was already established before the foundation of the world and only needs a single voice or vessel to release it into existence – to decree it to be made manifest on Earth as it is in Heaven. When His word is released by a child or prophet of God,
He is looking in the earth for our agreement to give it life; but guess what? So is satan!
This is why we must be so careful of what we hear, give voice to and agree with. Our agreement brings approval of the source,
giving ‘credibility’ to its name in the name of Jesus. We must be so careful what we agree with and approve. Our job as children of the Spirit of God and His prophets is to judge and weigh it.
us TEST and WEIGH every word and dream that comes forth by our inner Witness (the Holy Spirit) AND, most of all, by the Word of God! Let it bear witness and be supported by the Word; then let us follow the inner Witness.
Not Fear! God Has Good, Peaceful and Prosperous Plans for You in 5783
As we crossed into 5783, I felt an incredible renewal and excitement in my spirit and in the atmosphere around me as I began to anticipate the
Ten Days of Awe (which started on Rosh Hashanah and end on Yom Kippur)!
While the world and other voices have been dishing out doom, gloom, recession, lack, inflation and hardship (the enemy’s plans), God has been giving me
and my family a complete OPPOSITE witness, perspective and instructions.
I am seeing incredible increase and blessings for those in true covenant with our God! I hear in my spirit, “…I have not seen the
righteous forsaken, nor His children begging for bread” (Psalm 37:25).
He continues to speak the following Scriptures to me. The Word of God says that those who fear and seek the Lord lack no good thing
(see Psalm 34:9-10); every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no shadow of turning or shifting (see James 1:17); and “…my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus”
Are you seeing a pattern?
So DO NOT FEAR! God has good, peaceful and prosperous plans for you in 5783, and as we finish 2022 and move into 2023 (see
Jeremiah 29:11). Our King Jesus is on the throne, the Church of Jesus Christ is on the rise and HE WHO PROMISED IS FAITHFUL.
An Extra Helping of the Holy Spirit and a Declaration for the New Year
we have entered into the year 5783, I feel great excitement for what the Lord is going to do in us, individually and corporately. I keep hearing, “An extra helping of the Holy Spirit.” Simply meaning that we are going to see the manifested power
and strength of His Spirit poured out. Oh what grace and power, by His Spirit, is now available for us to run with and not grow weary, IF we will allow Him to do it.
I leave you with this:
“So he answered and said to me: ‘This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: “Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the LORD of hosts. “Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain!
And He shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of ‘Grace, grace to it!'”‘” (Zechariah 4:6-7)
I declare GRACE, GRACE TO YOUR 5783/2O23! As you go in faith and authority, those mountains that
stood in your way will fall.
I PROPHESY RESTORATION, RENEWAL OF YOUTH AND COVENANTAL PROVISION, IN JESUS’ NAME!
“Thou shalt also decree a thing, and
it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.” (Job 22:28)
This is your inheritance in Him! Amen. Praise the name of our LORD YAHWEH!

Let My Quiet Confidence Be Your Strength Today
By Russ Walden
Father says today, let My quiet confidence be your strength today. I am present where My word lives. As you allow My word to take shape and gestate on the inside of you, there will be no need to react, panic, or respond to the things that are contrary to My
promise in your life. Beloved, this day, allow the sinew of My strength to become the iron in your backbone, the flint in your forehead, and the determination that you will not allow anything, or anyone, to get in the way of your peace that I have bestowed
upon you this moment.
You are a principality and a power. You are actually more than a principality and a power, and actually more than a conqueror. But, I have to spoon-feed the kingdom
mentality to you while I expunge from your thinking the limiting, religious drivel that has been saturating the environment around you. Rest in Me, says the Father, and behold, your enemies go down like stones, thrown in the raging rivers of My justice.

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
"INWARD REVELATION" Words of prophecy: * The "signs" sought for by those of My children who continue to adhere to their
five physical senses as their guide will never be found.
...."The Pharisees came out and began to argue with Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven, to test Him. Sighing deeply in His spirit, He *said,
"Why does this generation seek for a sign? Truly I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation".... Mark 8:11-12 NASB
Inward revelation in the heart of the true believer is a far higher type
of spiritual experience than anything else. The most important thing for each and every child of God is to be found seeking first the Kingdom [which is an inward matter] not "outward signs".
may uses "outward signs" at times but, the first and foremost method of communication with Him is [through the Holy] Spirit to [our] spirit - through revelation in the inner man.
...."Then if anyone
says to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ,' or 'There [He is,]' do not believe [him.] "For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect".... Matthew 24:23-24 NASB
...."[I pray] that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.
that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.
These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and
authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him
who fills all in all"..... Ephesians 1:17-23 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation: Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people of faith - a people whose "final authority" is the revelation of Your
Word abiding in our hearts. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen
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.

Romans 10:9-10 … Thank You Lord that when I confess with my mouth Jesus as Lord, and believes in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved. I believe in my heart and accept You as Lord.
I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord.
Isaiah 45:8, 2 Tim 2:10 … Thank You Lord that salvation will spring up within my heart, that I may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with
