Prophetic Believers

The Gospel of Jesus Christ proclaims God’s plan for His creation – past, present and future, The power of that plan, including its prophetic expression, is made known in the message and its demonstration. The Lord demonstrates His prophetic plan with power that literally separates the hearer unto it.

Avoid anything that denies the importance of prophecy. Keep your own vision high—stay above the chatter. Preserve those deep roots in God, always seeking to go deeper. Depth calls for more depth, depth leads to more truth, and truth is a separator.

Prophetic ministry declares something beyond the way things are, separating us to something better and greater. Prophetically . . . we partner with the Lord to see ahead and envision the future, declaring Thy Kingdom come, Lord and thy will be done on earth as it is (just like it is) in heaven.

Amen.

Psalm 42

Crossing Over

You have a new day and new beginning. Break through. Press forward. Sanctify the Lord in your heart. Always set the Lord before you. Choose to be personally set apart with Him!

His mercy brings us out, to take us in.

The Lord—He is G-d!

Amen.

Final Hours of This Passover

We are in the final hours of this Passover season. New doors open into a new season as we are delivered from enemies that were entrenched in the old. We do it by faith.

When the Lord lead Israel out, He empowered them to prevail over enemy power. The Lord provided the means. You and I are equipped to do the same. We have God’s Spirit living within, His Word written on our hearts.

Our example in Jesus’ life. All things are possible and, to the degree we believe the Spirit and Word, every successful contest can be won by faith.                                                                                             

Anytime we seek God wholeheartedly, corresponding changes take place. God’s presence in our lives changes us as we leave the old nature and habits behind and by faith step into the new.

Don’t allow your own flesh to dictate another day of captivity. Change your lifestyle – and do it today, right now! Otherwise the shallow life will continue to exert its hold on you; dreams and visions will die in mediocrity.

Never say you seek the Lord’s highest when in fact you are comfortable in His second or third best.

We are in the final hours of this Passover season. New doors open into a new season as we are delivered from enemies that were entrenched in the old. We do it by faith.

Amen.

Exodus 12
Revelation 12 (especially 7-12)

 

You Would Think

“I will gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.” (Joel 3:2, KJV)

Revelation arrives i n the heart and with it comes supernatural elevation of God’s wisdom—greater insight into the matters before us, the things we pray about and seek the Lord concerning. Divine wisdom converts even the shallow-thinker into someone capable of greatness.

Such revelation is needed on the world scene. Not to minimize complex circumstances obviously resilient to basic common sense, but you would think nations and their people would see the Lord’s hand on Israel and grasp His ancient declaration that Israel’s land cannot be divided. Simply put, the land of Israel is the Lord’s land!

Anytime human hearts harden against God’s plan, diminished ability to reason occurs. The resulting danger cannot be overstated. Stepping away from the Lord’s plan is like opposing truth—God is Truth. Compare that to when truth is known, instead of opposing truth, we steward truth: “’Buy the truth, and do not sell it, also wisdom and instruction and understanding.”

On the world scene there are many instances where truth is known. Concerning God’s eternal plan for Israel and the Jewish people, many know the Lord has set His love upon the Jew and His protective hand is firmly placed on Israel and her beloved city Jerusalem. Also, that His judgment is decreed for any person or nation causing division of the Lord’s land, any division of Israel and Jerusalem.

The Lord says the land is His. Israel is the Lord’s land. The strength of the bully opposing His plan is already broken. Every eye will see an end to torment inflicted by the bully. The Lord puts a sock in the mouth pf the bully to silence him. The bully’s strength is in the bully’s words that do damage, but in this deliverance season the bully’s time to be plucked up has come!

But for those choosing the Lord’s side, He goes before and is your rear guard; your righteousness blazes a wide, supernatural path, one which God’s glory guards from behind. Wisdom and the reverential fear of the Lord guard your mind and you are delivered from the bully! Every oppressive and controlling voce grows silent, dumb. Hallelujah!

Think like the Lord. Stay on His side. Truth is marching.

Amen.

Princes With Deborah

In this biblical season between Passover and Pentecost we expect the Lord’s hand to come right into the center of our lives. The ‘brightness of His shining’ comes, overturning many things that are out of line with His will for us and strengthening our resolve to confidently stand. Were it not for the Lord, who is on our side, the outlook would be different. Because He is for us His strength intervenes, making a way for us when outsider predictors would say there is no way.

In this prophetic season, we express hope and dreams in harvest terms. We sow at the beginning and expect a supernatural harvest and prophetic words for the future. In the process patience is an ally; offense and being offended a luxury we cannot afford. We lead like Deborah and gather with generals – we belong with Issachar’s tribe, knowing stakes are high for all concerned. Like Deborah and those with her, we have fullness and fulfillment. We’ll come full circle!

We call for a harvest of our prayers—we lay claim to our portions of God-design, overturning haughty plans that threaten. In every place and on every side we receive answered prayer. Gleaning in fields pre-ordained for us, timing’s invitation finally comes and we step into it. We are princes in the royal line of our Lord with strategy and courage for exploits.

Aim above the crowd. Your portion is there.

Amen.

Appointed Fires of Breaking

Never stop saying what God has said. Actively agree with His Wisdom. Just as the tomb could not hold our Lord, there are appointed fires of breaking to bring you through to deliverance.

We connect to God’s delivering power through hope. With pure, God-given authority we hold fast until we see the promised result, denying every enemy a place to stand in the way of truth.

We connect through supernatural leading until the practical and spiritual converge and with purposeful aim we bring forth the glory of God. True sons of God are led by the Spirit of God and true sons continue to believe, even against difficult odds.

Hope must take root and faith must rise so that God brings forth exactly as He said: In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word WAS God. The same was in the beginning with God.

His Word converts hope into faith and faith into see. Planted in the human heart that seed produces the God-kind of fruit for those whose hope and faith position them to receive tomb-busting, Holy Ghost power!

So again, keep saying what God has said. Agree with Him. In the same way a tomb could not hold our Lord nothing can stop appointed fires of breaking to break thru and bring you out!

Amen.

Coming Out

Christian spirituality is more than tradition and religious formality. The Lord speaks a fresh word each morning, a proceeding word, and Christians sensitive to hear what the Spirit is saying receive from the Lord beyond the dictates of religious tradition.

True spirituality means obedience to the leading of God’s Spirit rather than religious demands or constraints: Listen to Him and do whatever He tells you. Today is made for salvation—your portion is to rejoice. Today is your day of salvation—you do hear Him!

As one led by the Spirit of God leave religion behind and turn toward the pattern and turn toward to the pattern of discipleship the Lord revealed in His Word. Turn expecting to hear from Him words revealed by His Spirit to all who with ears to hear.

As one led by the Spirit of God leave religion behind and turn, expectantly, toward the pattern of discipleship the Lord has revealed in His Word. Turn expecting to hear from Him words revealed by His Spirit to any who have an ear to hear.

You are coming out of religion and into spiritual reality, by the Spirit of the Lord!

Amen, so be it!

Passover

Pesach
15 Nissan 5776

“These are the appointed seasons of HaShem, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their appointed season. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at dusk, is HaShem’s passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto HaShem; seven days ye shall eat unleavened bread. In the first day ye shall have a holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work. And ye shall bring an offering made by fire unto HaShem seven days; in the seventh day is a holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work. And HaShem spoke unto Moses saying: Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them: When ye are come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring the sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest unto the priest. And he shall wave the sheaf before HaShem, to be accepted for you; on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.”  breslov.com Leviticus 23:4-11

The first of the spring feasts of Israel, Passover (Heb. Pesach pronounced peh’–sakh) began last evening. Keeping Passover is an important part of Israel’s relationship with God and there is great celebration among our Jewish brothers on this feast day. As Christians, our spiritual roots are in Israel and in our hearts we share in this joyful time. Leviticus 23:4-8, NLT

During this Passover season we pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We also pray for safety for those in Israel as they commemorate this historic event when God brought the Hebrew nation out of Egypt, a type of the world, and into the Promised Land, a type of God’s Kingdom. The land of promise then is the same land appointed to Israel’s possession today. The land and people of Israel are irreversibly the apple of God’s eye. Ezekiel 20:41-42

For Christians the Jewish Passover season coincides with our Resurrection season, our joyful, thankful celebration of the resurrection of our Lord, the Lamb of God who still today takes away the sin of the world. Those who embrace His lordship celebrate “crossing over” from darkness into Light, from spiritual oppression to freedom and life eternal!

Thanks be to God!

Amen.

Passover Begins

Erev Pesach / 14 Nissan 5776

The Jewish Passover begins at twilight today, a commemoration of national deliverance when Moses faced tremendous spiritual and physical opposition—literally the forces of hell. Charged by God to lead the Hebrews out of Egypt’s slave kingdom, Moses looked bondage in the eye and declared to Pharaoh the revelation he’d received from the Almighty, Israel’s God.

Moses decreed deliverance. God’s presence came! Brutal men grew more so yet others yielded to divine intervention, the Spirit’s lead. Egyptian masters relented, gathering gold and precious jewels for Israel’s sons. Wealth transferred to chosen hands and Israel . . . crossed over.

Our deliverance is no less supernatural. Tonight and tomorrow as the Passover new day dawns we see a fourth man in the furnace—walking! Firstborn children are delivered and marked by the Lord for destiny. You, with your children and your children’s children, are quickened by the joyful sounds and this divine season of deliverance.

With tomorrow’s dawn of Passover morning . . . you cross over!

Amen.

Mercy Day

13 Nissan, 5776

We are entering Passover. God’s mercy pours into our lives. You could say we are deluged with His divine, merciful consideration. He is rich in mercy with plenty of His mercy to go around!

Choose to leave behind habitual wandering—old ways, wrong beliefs, petty smallness and any neglect of His will—anything that squanders His mercy.

Our response to His mercy should be rich. We steward mercy’s wealth and the reward of that stewardship: The Lord my God goes with me, He will not leave or forsake.

You have a new day and new beginning. Breakthrough saturates the air. Press forward. Sanctify the Lord in your heart. Always set the Lord before you. Choose to be personally set apart with Him!

Together as family we will cross over. His mercy brings us out to take us in.

The Lord—He is G-d!

Amen.
