What happens BEFORE breakthrough?

mordecaiThe Lord has had me for a couple of weeks in Esther lately, specifically Esther 7, 8 and 9.  In fact He has given me a Word about this which I will shortly release.  However, this morning He put me in Esther 6, and said to me, “What happened before?”

My mind automatically thought He meant what happened before the banquet, what happened before the king said ‘yes’ to all of Esthers’ requests, that kind of thing.  I was thinking in the natural, as in, what led up to the events at the banquet table that night?  That was my mindset as I opened up my bible to Esther 6 and started to read.

Chapter 6:1-3 (Amp)

On that night the king could not sleep.  He ordered that the book of memorable deeds, the chronicles, be brought and they were read before the king. 

And it was found written there how Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king’s attendants who guarded the door, who had sought to lay hands on King Ahasuerus. 

And the King said, “What honor or distinction has been given Mordecai for this?”  Then the King’s servants who ministered to him said, Nothing has been done for him.

I find it interesting that the King had a book of chronicles, a book of memorable deeds.  In it he found You.  Yes, You, doing memorable deeds for the king.  He saw your life in front of him, written on the very pages of that book.  He saw your struggles, your minor victories, and all the situations that you have been in, leading up to this very day!  He has seen you just plugging along, doing your thing for the King, and it has all been recorded – every act, every deed, every word, every thought that you have had toward Him and for His people.

As I saw this, I suddenly realized what God was asking me — “WHAT HAPPENS BEFORE BREAKTHROUGH?”

We all know God is a planning God, a God of order and not of chaos.  So it would stand to reason that God would have a PLAN FOR YOUR BREAKTHROUGH.  Do you want to know what it is?

Esther 6 lays it all out perfectly!  Before the breakthrough with the death of the enemy, before the breakthrough of the victory of the Jews, before the breakthrough of Purim, there was a divine Plan for Breakthrough!

  1. God Remembers You

It’s not as if He ever forgot you, but now He remembers you – it’s Your Turn for BREAKTHROUGH!  I heard a speaker not too long ago define “remember” as an act of doing one a favor, or helping one out, as in God remembered Hannah.  It was her turn for a blessing, for a baby!  He remembered her!

In the same way, Esther’s King remembered Mordecai (and YOU!).  Nothing had as yet been done for him….but God!

Don’t forget, our king who never sleeps and never slumbers (Ps. 21:4), also never takes his eyes off YOU.  He knows your every move, your every action, but the only ones that are written down are the “memorable deeds”!  Not the ugly things we say or think or do.  God chooses to remember only our good deeds.  The rest are washed away under the blood!  Believe it!  Everything you do for the Kingdom of God is recorded for all of eternity in His book of memorable deeds!

It is Your Turn!  He  is remembering you now!

  1. HOW God can bless you

So, you have done memorable deeds for the King, and they are written in His book.  He NOW asks – “What honor or distinction has been given my son or daughter for this?”  The servants, His angels, must honestly answer – “NOTHING!”  This is because breakthrough has only just begun!   God is setting it into motion!  What do you NEED in your life?  It’s on its way!  Aren’t you excited that the Creator of the Universe, of everything that IS, now wants to create something to bless you into breakthrough?  I am!

2.  WHO God is using to bless you

In verse 4, the King now asks, “Who is in the court?”  God is looking for someone to bless you and bring breakthrough to pass in your life!  Who can He use to bless you?  God ALWAYS has a plan and purpose.  Sometimes the one in the court that would be the LEAST OBVIOUS, the LEAST LIKELY, the LAST POSSIBLE CHOICE to bless you is….your enemy.   NOT your friend, NOT your boss, NOT your spouse, NOT your Pastor….your enemy!  That’s crucial information for this season!  This time, for this season, for YOUR BREAKTHROUGH God is using the LEAST LIKELY CANDIDATE to turn your whole existence around!  That means that you probably won’t even see it coming!  Your blessings will come out of seemingly NOWHERE!  Out of the midst of your struggle will come your breakthrough!  Isn’t that encouraging?

Who is your enemy today?  Is it lack?  Is it sickness?  Is it marital problems?  Who is your enemy?  Whoever it is or Whatever it is, God is turning it around from your weakness into your strength!  What the enemy meant for harm God is turning it around for your good!

3.  WHAT God uses to bless You

Verse 6 says, “So Haman came in. And the king said to him, “What shall be done to the man whom the king delights to honor?”   WooHOO!  Get Ready, Get Ready, Get Ready!  When God lets the enemy in, all Heaven is going to break loose!  Because you see, God never lets the enemy in for no reason!  He ALWAYS has a better idea in place for YOU!

Jesus TROMPED the enemy at the cross!   He publicly humiliated him!  It was intentional!  God was showing up and showing off, for His own glory!  God is doing it again, this time using YOU!  If it seems like the enemy has been having his way in your life, it may be that God has let the enemy in for the purpose of a humiliating defeat — his!  God is turning it around – ALL THE WAY AROUND!

You will be clothed you in King’s clothes – his royal apparel, riding his royal horse and wearing a royal crown.  The goods will be delivered by the hand of one of the King’s most noble princes, and you will be paraded around the town square, while the enemy MUST proclaim, “Thus shall it be done to the man whom the King delights to honor!”

Be sure, this is COMING!  For some of you it could be literal and you will be blessed beyond comprehension to have massive, major breakthrough in the financial realm.  For some of you it could be a spiritual breakthrough, as you ascend to the greatest heavenly heights and intimacy with the Father of your lifetime.  For some it will be familial salvations, coveted, long awaited and diligently interceded.  For others it may be breakthrough in your relationship with your children, as they “return home”, and you are finally esteemed in the manner of Proverbs 31 — your children shall rise up and call you blessed.

But you will know it was the hand of God that brought you the breakthrough!  You will see it with your own eyes in the land of the living!  It will be obvious not only to you, but to others as well!   It will be a public display!  The spotlight will be on what God is doing in your life!

5.  WHY God is Blessing You

Whatever it is, in whatever area you gain breakthrough, it is for God’s glory and for the greater good of the Kingdom!  It will be an intentional, in your face victory!  God is tromping the enemy again, and He is giving you breakthrough!  While the enemy goes home mourning, crying and limping to his house, you will once again return to the King’s gate, ready for the next breakthrough to come!

You are in Position and You are Ready!

Your Vision is Restored!

You have your objective in sight. You have been given your assignment. You have laser-sharp focus and aim. You are an arrow on the way to your target and with God there is nothing you cannot do. You have clarity of thought, vision and focus.

Do not get distracted.

I left out an hour early yesterday to head to an appointment. There was an automobile collision on the highway in front of the college, right in the path of where I was going. The traffic was backed up for a little way, as the wreckers were moving the cars out of the road. The fire trucks were on the scene, firefighters were hosing down the intersection and sweeping up car parts, and frankly, it was a mess.

As I was watching all of this transpire, the Lord spoke to me and said, “This is what happens when you get distracted. It slows YOU down and everybody else around you as well!”

Surprisingly, I was only waiting in this back-up for a few minutes before the police officers waved the line of traffic through. In fact, they waved us through a RED LIGHT, to keep traffic moving on this road.

I realized this was a “BUT GOD” moment! He knew that wreck was there, so He had me leave the house early so that I would not be impeded by the obstacles that were put in my path. He even allowed the governing authorities in this realm to WAVE ME THROUGH something that otherwise would have stopped me!

This is a Word for you today! You will NOT be slowed down! You will not be stopped and You will NOT be moved by anything other than by the will of God!
God not only knows where you are going but He knows HOW to get you there, and do it in time and on time – His time! In this season you don’t have to worry about being stopped or even slowed down! God will make you leave early if He has to or He will delay you in order that you would avoid any collision on your course! Either way, it’s all Him!

You are an arrow shooting straight through the air to your destiny! The Lord has released you from His quiver! He had pulled you back so tightly in the bow of the last season that you didn’t think that you would be able to stand the tension and the stress and the pressure…but NOW He has let you LOOSE and you are FLYING through the air on the way to where the Master Marksman has intended for you to go from the very beginning of time – directly to your destiny!

Don’t get distracted! Pay attention! Listen to the Word of the Lord, his still, small voice. Listen to him! He is putting highway markers out in front of you for you to easily follow!

Your Assignment in your new Position

For some people the assignment is to just “show up”… and for some, the assignment is to make things happen. Either way, God is putting the TWO of you together! One of you is going to make it happen and the other one is going to show up and it’s BOTH going to be by the will of God so don’t be deterred or disturbed if things are not happening as quickly as you had envisioned them!

God is sending that person to you – the one that will make everything happen, the mover-and -shaker, the one who picks up the phone, the one who has the money, the one who has the idea, the one who needs your skill, your trade, your talent. He is sending them!

Thus sayeth the Lord God – you are in position and you are ready!
Do not listen to the mouth of the enemy lying to you and telling that you are not able to, that you are not ready, that you don’t have the money, that healing is not for you – Don’t listen to all that! Those are the lies of the enemy! He has spent all of eternity coming up with ways to hold you back. DON’T LISTEN!

Listen this day to the voice of the Lord! You are in position and you are ready!

The Mighty Umbilical Cord of God!

Umbilical.Cord I saw a photograph of a friend’s new born grandbaby, only a few hours old. I was enamored with the little nose and mouth, the shape of the face and from the resemblance to my friend it was obvious this was their offspring.

I was just enjoying this photo and thinking grandma thoughts when I saw the baby’s bellybutton. The baby is so new in this picture that the umbilical cord is still fresh and plump, even though it was clamped by the hospital.

It struck me that we as Christians are fed through our bellies! As I looked at that baby’s umbilical cord I suddenly had a quick vision and saw a RIVER of God’s Power and Provision, Grace and Kingdom Revelation Knowledge flowing through His heavenly umbilical cord into us!

Did that baby do anything at all to receive the Life-Giving nutrients from its mother?

NO!

The baby just was and Life flowed into her! She was simply a RECEIVER!!
In fact, she doesn’t even know she was a receiver of Life, she just took it!

EVERYTHING with God is a picture of Kingdom Life!

This is a WORD for you! God is sending His Grace, Knowledge and Power — along with EVERYTHING ELSE YOU NEED FOR THIS NEW SEASON — directly to you through His mighty umbilical cord straight into your heart!

There is nothing that you need to DO!!! Just be a Receiver! He is feeding you everything that you need to live and THRIVE in this next season! You need do nothing more!

Simply RECEIVE!

Just TAKE IT! Open up your hands, your eyes, your ears and most of all your HEART and take it all in! Everything that you need is being FED to you by our Lord, with no effort on your part!

Say AMEN and RECEIVE IT!!!

Jesus is Coming to Boston! Darryl Bayer

Beautiful Day in downtown Boston near the Old North Church and Boston Common.

Here is a Prophetic Dream by my seer husband, Darryl Bayer. This dream describes the coming of Jesus to Boston.

In a dream I saw an area of downtown Boston, just north of the Commons and not far from the State House. The buildings on that side of the street were beginning to fill with people and more were coming. It was dark outside but I knew the sun had just gone down a few minutes earlier and the night was still young. Many more were heading to the roof or now already on it looking to sky and waiting for Jesus. Some were praying, some were saying Jesus and others were just looking up and expecting.

Just under the roof was like a mezzanine level. It had a balcony but the entrance to balcony on the inside had a curtain that was slightly parted in the middle, like a tent opening. The floor was covered with many mats and the lame, sick people were beginning to fill that level. I saw people, men and women in wheelchairs also coming to the mezzanine.

I went through the curtain opening and walked out onto the balcony. I looked up to the roof and saw that it was full and the cheering was growing louder as they awaited the night sky to open up. Looking down I saw a winding alleyway. It was sunk a few feet below street level and children were being led down a curved path and ready to go around the far corner to the left and out of eyesight. I knew they were heading underground to a place under the building. They were not cheerful children but rather sad and looking like young teens from the ages of 12-15.

I jumped down to get a closer look and curious where they were going. Why not in the buildings with the rest of the people? As I landed from a three story descent, two larger teens came around the corner from the right and blocked me by dancing around until the others were gone and then they scurried away after them. The dream ended by me going back up into the building and continuing to observe the cheering people on the roof looking towards the heavens from the balcony.

My last thought in the dream: Is this the night that Jesus will return and if not, will they be here again the next? Either way, as I woke, I felt peace for their belief and faithfulness.

(The inserted picture is very close except my view was flipped as in most of my dreams. The building themselves are identical. The sky of course was night and the church was not in my forward range of vision but more off in my peripheral.)

Unfettered!

unfettered
You are Unfettered!

It was unusually cold this morning – in the twenties –so I put clear, plastic baggies on over my socks to keep my feet warm and DRY inside my boots. I didn’t want cold, wet feet walking around outside in twenty degree weather!

As I was walking toward the barn to feed my animals, the Lord dropped a single Word into my spirit — “Unfettered”. Nothing more, just one Word.

I finished feeding the animals, took off my boots outside the back door and walked inside. I still had on my sweater, my coat, my scarf – and the clear, plastic bags over my socks.
However, as I walked through the kitchen the plastic bags CAME OFF! At first I didn’t notice, until I realized that the flooring felt different. I looked down, and I suddenly realized I had walked right out of those clear, plastic bags.

Now get this – I WALKED RIGHT OUT OF THEM! Suddenly. Just all of a sudden, with no notice! Nothing else had changed! I still had on my coat, my scarf, my sweater, all my outward attire – but I had WALKED RIGHT OUT of those clear, plastic bags on my feet. I didn’t even try!

With just ONE WORD from the Lord – UNFETTERED — my circumstances had changed!

This is a Word for YOU today! I believe that there are some issues in your life that the Lord is walking you right out of – SUDDENLY! RIGHT NOW! Even before you notice that He has doing anything at all! From all outward appearances, initially, it may all LOOK the same. You may even still be wearing your same old clothes.

ALL IT TAKES IS ONE WORD FROM THE LORD! Your WALK is going to CHANGE! And THEN you will see the manifestation of your breakthrough!

See, the plastic bags on my feet were CLEAR. They were light, and I really couldn’t even feel them! I couldn’t SEE them, although I knew that I had them on. In fact, I had put them on my feet myself!

Perhaps, logically, the circumstances of your life are clear. In reality, there may be unseen spirits, principalities and powers that have been holding you back. Unseen, and you have gotten used to them….so much so that you don’t even “feel” them anymore. Some of us, by the flesh, may have even gotten ourselves into our predicaments and situations.

But God! He breathed UNFETTERED into your life and mine this morning!

Whatever the circumstances, spirits or people that are holding you back, it does not matter! GET READY! God is going to just walk you right out of them!!

The causes of Lack in your life — GONE! Root causes of sickness and disease – GONE! That glass floor over your head? SHATTERED, in Jesus’ Name!

Breakthrough has come! You are walking into it, NOW! TODAY!

YOU ARE UNFETTERED!!

Build Big! Everything is Ready!

solomonstemple
Build Big! Everything is ready! You have been faithful to God for years and have acquired the necessary knowledge. Support and encouragers have followed you though many trials. A legacy was dispatched to live out the rest of your days, not in complacency, but with vigor.

There are a multitude of helpers ready to assist in the construction of the new temple. Finances are pouring out at the asking. Blessings of God are on your family and career. The dedication of this house will be oh so beautiful. — Darryl Bayer, http://www.facebook.com/darryl.bayer.3

“Now, my son, may the Lord be with you; and may you prosper, and build the house of the Lord your God, as He has said to you. Only may the Lord give you wisdom and understanding, and give you charge concerning Israel, that you may keep the law of the Lord your God. Then you will prosper, if you take care to fulfill the statutes and judgments with which the Lord charged Moses concerning Israel. Be strong and of good courage; do not fear nor be dismayed.”

“Indeed I have taken much trouble to prepare for the house of the Lord one hundred thousand talents of gold and one million talents of silver, and bronze and iron beyond measure, for it is so abundant. I have prepared timber and stone also, and you may add to them. Moreover there are workmen with you in abundance: woodsmen and stonecutters, and all types of skillful men for every kind of work. Of gold and silver and bronze and iron there is no limit. Arise and begin working, and the Lord be with you.” —1Chron. 22:11-16, (NKJV)
