Are you STILL on hold? Don’t hang up! You’re NEXT!

Do you feel as though you are “on Hold”?  You are not alone! I have heard from many who feel as though they are in limbo at this moment, literally “on Hold”.

There is nothing more frustrating than trying to make a phone call and getting hung up in a phone tree! Or, worse, being placed on hold…indefinitely! Sometimes, after we have been on hold for what we deem as “long enough”, we hang up before anyone comes on the line. I have even heard someone coming on to answer my call right as it was disconnecting.  Now THAT is frustrating!

But fear not, for you are next! You are in queue, and your turn is coming right up! God hasn’t forgotten you! He has not left you hanging, even though it surely feels as though it has been a very long time, maybe even as if it is time to hang it up, call it quits and throw in the towel.

Listen, saint – DON’T HANG UP! Instead, hang in there just a little longer! Don’t give up! God is doing a thing. We don’t need to know what it is, only that HE IS!

Your turn is coming, your number is coming up and it will be time, in the fullness of time, to move ahead. And when it is your turn, nothing and no one will be able to stop you! He guarantees it!

“But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.” (James 1:4)

 “Then God remembered Rachel, and God gave heed to her and opened her womb,” (Genesis 30:22)

  “And I give them eternal life, and they shall never lose it or perish throughout the ages. [To all eternity they shall never by any means be destroyed.] And no one is able to snatch them out of My hand. My Father, Who has given them to Me, is greater and mightier than all [else]; and no one is able to snatch [them] out of the Father’s hand,” (John 10:28-29).

THE SOUND: A Prophecy Hidden in Plain Sight!

THE SOUND: A Prophecy Hidden in Plain Sight!

I was studying Acts 2, and in verses 5-7 read THIS:

“Now there were then residing in Jerusalem Jews, devout and God-fearing men from every country under heaven. And when this sound was heard, the multitude came together and they were astonished and bewildered, because each one heard them [the apostles] speaking in his own [particular] dialect. And they were beside themselves with amazement, saying, ‘Are not all these who are talking Galileans?'”

Wow! I have read this a dozen times and heard it preached more than that; however, not until TODAY did it jump off the page that “the multitude” that gathered once they heard “the sound” and listened to the apostles speaking in their own tongue consisted of devout, God-fearing men. More importantly, they were people who actually KNEW the apostles!

I had always thought that it was a gathering of miscellaneous peoples from anywhere and everywhere, people that just happened to show up on the scene; people just wandering by at a divine moment, regardless of where they were from or what god they were worshiping. Not true!

This changes everything! It is a prophecy hidden in plain sight! This means “the sound” (Acts 2:2, 6) was for them, the God-fearing ones, and it is for US, too! God is coming with a new sound! THE SOUND is NOT for everyone, everywhere, but if you are reading this, it’s for you – so reach out and grab it!  The sound is not for the casual Christian, nor is it for the heathen! It is for devout, God-fearing people who know the sound-carrier Himself! This means you!

We are being called together by the sound, for the sound! The sound drew the multitude together so the Lord could minister to them further by the sound of His voice in their own language, drawing them to Himself. How did they know where to gather? How did they know where it came from, or what direction to follow? And for that matter, how will we?

“…‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6 AMP).

It was the loud and clear sound, leading and guiding them – the sound made by the Holy Spirit! Up to this point the upper room believers were the only ones filled with the Spirit, so the Spirit had to call the other three thousand another way!  He chose the sound, because God knows how to get our attention! He will get our attention, His modern-day believers, in a similar manner, rest assured! He will call us together when it is time, in the fullness of time, the new multitude, to minister to us further by the sound of his voice.

“When the fullness of time had come…” (Galatians 4:4).

This is the sound of heaven! Acts 2:2 says, “Then suddenly there came a sound from heaven like the rushing of a violent tempest blast…” What does a “violent tempest blast” sound like? A tempest, by definition, is a sudden, violent storm, accompanied by high winds and sometimes by hail or rain. That sounds like a tornado to me! The Acts 2:2 violent tempest blast sounded just like a tornado hitting, deafening in its loudness, rushing like a freight train, dropping out of heaven SUDDENLY and violently!

Wow! This is the sound of heaven! The God-fearing ones in Acts didn’t miss it and we won’t be able to miss it, either!

God is coming with a new sound, just for us! He is calling us unto Himself, drawing us ever closer. He is calling the called, the God-fearing, chosen remnant of this hour. Be prepared to be amazed, astonished and even bewildered, just like the multitude of believers that gathered in Acts 2. When God shows up with His new sound just for us, there will be no doubt where it is coming from, or where we should go to gather as part of the multitude of God-fearing ones!

We may not understand it all but will surely be blessed to be a part of it…and God’s Holy Spirit will make sure we don’t miss it. His sound will guide us right to the source – the sound carrier!

Be blessed as you listen for the sound!

It is a Double River Season! Our words are the river, and our lips are its banks!

I have been hearing “RIVER” in my spirit a lot lately! In fact, to make sure I didn’t miss it, God had someone recently prophesy over me that I would soon have an Ezekiel 47 moment.  Looking up Ezekiel 47, I found out that it is about a river – the one that Ezekiel walked through!

Since I’d been hearing it so many times in my spirit, while driving recently, I decided to ask the Lord, “What is it about the river, Lord?”

He responded immediately, saying, “The River is a most holy place.”

Sometimes God speaks to me, and I don’t get it right away, because it’s a riddle! When He said this to me, I actually thought I heard Him wrong. How could A RIVER, which is not just one place, but a multitude of places that could stretch for miles, be A MOST HOLY PLACE? I could not understand it.

“What?” I asked Him.  Again, he gently repeated it to me, “A most holy place.”

Pondering this phrase, it reverberated in my spirit, rolling around inside of me. I knew this phrase was a scripture, or part of one; however, since I had just read Leviticus, I also thought I remembered it had to do with the burnt offering sacrifice. I felt in my spirit that what He was saying is that somehow the river is related to Aaron and the Priests’ portion of the sacrifices. These were designated as “most holy” by God, to be partaken of in a “sacred place”.

“And the bread shall be for Aaron and his sons, and they shall eat it in a sacred place, for it is for [Aaron] a most holy portion of the offerings to the Lord made by fire, a perpetual due [to the high priest],” (Leviticus 24:9 AMPC).

Thinking that, as kings and priests, The River must be OUR “sacred place” in this season, “a most holy portion”, I left it at that. Yet, still hungry and desiring more revelation, I asked the Lord again, “Tell me about The River, Lord!” Again, immediately, He responded, but this time visually. As I drove, ­He took me high above the highway, showing me a vision of rivers from the air… many rivers, tributaries and convergences.  He reminded me that rivers have banks, and that the river flows in between those banks.

When I got home, I started to study out the river of Ezekiel 47 in Hebrew. I found that the word for “banks” (Strong’s 8193) means “LIPS”! Suddenly, I understood! Remember, the Lord had reminded me while I was driving that every river has banks. Since the banks of the river are our lips, then the Lord was saying that our words are the river, and our lips are its banks!

The River is a most holy place, He said, so the banks – our lips – must also be holy, as are the words that flow from them – a holy portion from a sacred place! This makes them, and us, holy, because He is holy!

But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, ‘Be ye holy; for I am Holy.’  (1 Peter 1:15-16 KJV).

His words have creative power, so our words must be HIS WORDS. Incredibly, this is something we already know; however, the Lord is emphasizing how super-important it is in this hour.

The River in Ezekiel 47 becomes a DOUBLE RIVER, so the river of our words has a “double river” power in this season! Watch this:

“And wherever the double river shall go, every living creature which swarms shall live. And there shall be a very great number of fish, because these waters go there that [the waters of the sea] may be healed and made fresh; and everything shall live wherever the river goes.” (Ezekiel 47:9).

WOW! Most of us already know that we frame our world with our words – that we speak and create our circumstances!  But in a double river season our words produce results so much greater than our thoughts or intentions.

Our mouths are superbly creative forces in the earth realm, but much, much more so in this season! In this DOUBLE RIVER SEASON, our words have even more creative power! This means that when we speak in agreement with the word of God, which is holy, we will create more of what He says, because everything that we say will LIVE! When we speak in agreement with the word of God in this Double River Season, our words will release more from heaven’s banks – more life! More health! More abundance! More joy! More peace! More of everything.

“A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.  Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof,” (Proverbs 18:20-21 KJV).

Going back to while I was driving, I asked Him again one last time, “Tell me about The River, Lord!”  He responded immediately with, “You’re IN IT!”

You see, since God’s voice is the voice of many waters (see Revelation 14:2), He says many things at the same time using the same words. The “Double River” is not just what we are creating according to the word of God. We are creating Revival simply by speaking it into existence! The River flows from the temple into the Dead Sea – into the lifeless water, healing it (see Ezekiel 47:8).  The River comes, bringing life, forcing it to overflow its banks, becoming a double portion! This is the water that brings life to everything in it.

This sounds like REVIVAL to me – and we’re IN IT, says the Lord! “And there shall be a very great number of fish, because these waters go there that [the waters of the sea] may be healed and made fresh; and everything shall live wherever the river goes.”

I cannot over-emphasize the power of what the Lord has released through this word! We MUST pray the word, speak the word, sing the word, prophesy the word and use the word in all that we do in this hour. We have an opportunity unlike any other moment in history to create what it is that God is speaking. We are already IN Revival, in a DOUBLE RIVER SEASON, bringing life to all!

Speak Life! Hallelujah!

Be blessed as you swim in the life-giving waters of this new season in Revival!

Positioned to Produce!

I took my not-so-little-now, formerly stray kitten to have her spayed. Many know that spaying a female cat will not only keep her from having kittens but will potentially lengthen her lifespan. It will keep her from leaving home, possibly getting hit by a car, getting into fights, acquiring diseases or other feline predicaments. Ultimately, in the long run, she will be a healthier, happier cat.

Not knowing any of this, of course, during the drive over there, she howled and cried out, scared and confused. I kept telling her it was going to be okay, because I knew where she was headed. I laid my hand on the pet carrier, close to her where she could see it, but that didn’t work. I tried to comfort her with soothing words as best as I could, but she didn’t listen to me.  She just cried out, over and over. Although it hurt me to hear her crying like that, I knew what was getting ready to happen was for her welfare.

“We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose,” (Romans 8:28 AMPC).

“For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue),” (2 Peter 1:3 AMPC).

As she continued to howl and cry, I thought to myself, “We’re a lot like that with God!”  He is always working on our behalf (see Romans 8:28), taking care of us to give us a better, longer, healthier life (see 2 Peter 1:3). Sadly, lots of times, since we cannot see where we are headed, we cry out. We don’t understand why we are in the situation that we are in, so we cry out. Over, and over again, even though He tells us in His Word to trust Him, we cry out! We cry out in fear, in frustration, anger or pain, because we want Him to change our situation. We want Him to take it away!

Honestly, instead of taking my cat to the vet, I could have changed her situation and taken it completely away. I could have easily turned my truck around, gone home and let her out of the pet carrier.  I could have ended her bewilderment and confusion and taken away her suffering. For the short term, she would have been happy.  If I had done that, it would have made all her crying and howling stop, but she would be in the exact same situation! Nothing would have changed in her life.

It’s a Biblical fact: Sometimes we are forced to go through painful situations, because no matter how much we fuss and cry, it is for our own good and for Kingdom purposes! Yes, it may hurt for a little while, just like I told my cat; but, ultimately, we end up in a much better place. Once we grow through these circumstances and teaching trials, we will then be able to be promoted. Once we are on the other side we will be positioned to produce Kingdom fruit.

Joseph went to prison so he could be positioned to rule a nation! Noah was trapped on a boat in the pouring rain for an entire year – God’s requirement to repopulate the planet! Jesus hung on the cross – the ONLY WAY to birth an entirely new creation! None of these things would have happened had God simply taken away the prison cell, the pet-friendly cruise ship … or the cross. These things had to happen in order for the greater things to happen.

“Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience,” (James 1:3 AMPC).

“Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance,” (Romans 5:3 AMPC).

It is the same in our lives! Nothing that happens to us in life is coincidence. All one has to do is take a look at Job to see that! God wastes nothing, and sooner or later will use everything that happens to us for good, according to His plans (see Jeremiah 29:11).

So, take heart, saints of God! If you are going through a tough time, cannot see where you are going or understand what is going on right now, count it all joy (see James 1:2 AMPC)! You are in good company! The blessing of what you are going through will be seen on the other side. You will be stronger in the Lord, well able to endure whatever comes your way, fully promotable and well positioned to produce!

Be blessed in the positioning!

God’s Preemptive Strike to Bless You!

The Lord of Heaven’s Armies’ Preemptive Strikes to Bless You!

Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, is doing it again! He has entered into a Preemptive War to bless you!

Recently one morning I heard “Preemptive Strike” over and over. I had heard this term, but didn’t really know the formal definition of it, so I looked it up:

Preemptive Strike – military action taken by a country in response to a threat from another country. The purpose is to stop the threatening country from carrying out its threat.

A while back I went to open my bedroom window. When I looked at the lock to turn it, a wasp was there! I saw the wasp before it saw me and I was able to kill it before it did. By showing me the wasp first, the Lord had protected me from getting stung!

This really spoke to me! This was a preemptive strike by the Holy Spirit! He showed me where the enemy was before the enemy saw me, effectively stopping the enemy from carrying out his threat of harm.

He is doing it again!  In 2 Kings 6:8-13, the prophet Elisha told the King of Israel’s armies what his enemy, the king of Aram, was planning. This allowed Israel to thwart their plans to try to defeat Israel before they’d even had a chance to launch their attack. This was a preemptive strike!

“One of his servants said, “None [of us is helping him], my lord, O king; but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the words that you speak in your bedroom,” (2 Kings 6:12 AMPC).

In the same way, my husband and I have been readying our home for sale, fixing it up, doing some upgrades, landscaping and so forth. We had already used up our savings to do this, so my husband applied for a quick, low-interest loan against his 401K to be paid back upon the sale. Shortly after applying we were informed that the loan, which we understood would only take a few days, had run into a procedural obstacle. This procedure could take up to thirty days to clear, and might not clear at all! We had to stop working on the house until when – or if – this loan came through.

But God! Incredibly, on the same day that we found this out, we were blessed with a very substantial gift. This gift was more than enough to take care of all the expenses that the 401K loan would have covered. God had already laid it on the heart of someone to bless us before we ever knew that the 401K loan might not come through!

Please hear this! At the exact same time that the enemy was trying to stop us, God had issued a Preemptive Strike to bless us! The blessing arrived on the very same day, with no delay!

God’s preemptive strike to bless you!   This is not just for a select few, either, because God is no respecter of persons (see Acts 10:34). It’s your turn! It is God’s heart to issue preemptive strikes to bless you! In this season, the Lord is sending counter-attacks to offset the harm that the enemy would try to do. For some, instead of surgery, God will preemptively, supernaturally heal! For some, God will preemptively strike barren wombs and children will be knitted together! For some, God’s preemptive strike will take you from bankruptcy to benefactor! For others, God will preemptively change your job title from “unemployed” to “BOSS”!

The most major Preemptive Strike of  All!  It is God’s heart that we not just survive, but that we THRIVE! He sent Jesus to destroy the works of the enemy, the most major Preemptive strike of all time! What better way than to stop it before it starts?

“The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil,” (1 John 3:8 AMPC).

I believe that the multitude of His children, those who have an intimate relationship with Him, those whom He calls friends, will experience this preemptive war of blessings that the Lord is waging. In fact, I prophesy that many of us will see God’s hand at work preemptively multiple times in the days and months to come!

Here’s to a war that cannot be lost because God is fighting it for us – the preemptive war of God’s blessings!

Enjoy this season!

In Him,
