I heard the Lord say, “Come into my garden.” I looked and saw a yellow-orange glow pouring out from between iron gate leaves. It looked a little like flames. Stepping through the gate, I was approached by a stick-figure god. He was just a drawing in black ink, and I could see right through him, literally – I could see the flames in the background right through his body. This god kept trying to give me something but failed, over and over.
Then I saw THE WALL on my left. I immediately thought of the wailing wall. There was a traditionally dressed Jewish man in front of THE WALL, bowing and rising, again and again as he prayed. I realized that this man went to THE WALL over and over many times a day to pray, verbalizing his requests to God.
I looked at THE WALL again, but now it was on my right. Focusing in on it, I saw the prayers of the saints – little pieces of paper stuck between the rocks. Suddenly Kim Clement was there! He was speaking and gesturing to me, but I couldn’t hear him. I could only see his lips move and hand gestures. He wasn’t looking directly at me, it was almost as if he was talking to someone else; yet, I knew he was talking to me. I got a sense that he was telling me how incredible and unbelievable it was that I haven’t walked into my destiny yet…that I haven’t yet walked into my full inheritance.
I caught a quick vision of a park bench somewhere in the garden, tucked away, hidden in the secret place. That was when Kim grabbed me by my wrist and started to lead me – no, almost DRAG me – by the arm. His steps were so long that I semi-ran behind him as he strode purposefully further and further into the garden. THE WALL flew by for what seemed to be miles, but I could still clearly see the rocks with the prayers stuck between them.
Meanwhile, the vision of the park bench was ever playing out in front of me, even as it appeared that he was dragging me toward it. I could see it in the vision, yet it was like a split screen – on one side was the bench, the other was him dragging me alongside THE WALL. Even so, somehow, it was still one vision.
As he dragged me and I semi-ran behind him, I asked-thought, “God, why Kim Clement? Why him?”
The Lord reminded me of something He had told me the morning I found out that Kim had gone home to be with the Lord. He had told me that unlike most mantles, that Kim Clement’s mantle had been exploded, landing on many. That is why there are so many prophets now: even though many did not pick up their piece of his mantle, many did. This made prophets into strong prophets, and strong prophets even stronger.
The whole time the Lord spoke, the whole time I walked-ran behind Kim Clement, I could still see a vision of the park bench ever in front of me.
Suddenly I realized the Lord had come to me as Kim Clement! I said so, and He turned to look at me over his shoulder. Dragging me, even as I semi-ran behind him, He said, “Now you’re talking! Now you’re getting it!”
After what seemed like miles, the film reel slowed down, like a roulette wheel slowly coming to a stop. We stood in front of a particular spot in THE WALL. He again reminded me of the mantle falling on many, and that one of them was me. Kim Clement pointed to THE WALL with his free hand, while still holding onto my wrist, turned to me and said, “It’s your time!”
I say this to all of you now – It’s YOUR TIME! Whatever your mantle, walk – no RUN – to your particular spot in THE WALL. Get your sword in one hand and your building utensil in the other. Get busy building the Kingdom!
The Lord is dragging us behind Him, forcing us to move more quickly in this accelerated time as He purposefully positions us. He has chosen a particular spot in THE WALL for each of us in this hour. He has given each of us a unique assignment, along with unique gifts and talents to fulfill it. We are the living stones (see 1 Peter 2:5), fulfilling our part of God’s grand blueprint, positioned exactly where He wants us. Prayer holds it all together, stuck like mortar between us.
The Lord will take each of us by the hand to make sure we do our part to build a wall of hope, a wall of faith, a wall of exhortation, a wall of salvation for the greatest harvest in history! We must answer their prayers with prayer. We must help others build their particular spot in THE WALL. We must teach them to fight with their sword in one hand while ministering and building with the other, just as in Nehemiah’s time. “Those who built the wall and those who bore burdens loaded themselves so that everyone worked with one hand and held a weapon with the other hand,” (Nehemiah 4:17 AMPC).
The Park Bench – the time to Park it in eternity, to rest – is ever there before us, ever waiting for us; however, Now is the time to work and build THE WALL. Rest will come, when the work is done.
Blessings in this harvest season!

This is a hard and messy word about Offense, but it must be taught. It is nasty. It sneaks up on us, attaches itself to us and then spreads like a virus onto others. It is a tactic of the enemy for these last days to keep us from unity. But God! He wants us to get cleaned up. He recently told me that offense is the cork in the wine bottle and He wants His people uncorked in this hour.
How to know if you are offended:
1- You get an icky feeling in your stomach (spirit) when you think about someone or
2- You get mad when you think of them or
3- you don’t want to be anywhere near where they are or conversely,
4- you are upset that they are not friends with you anymore (ex: they are friends with your friends but not you now; they go places without you, etc., etc.) akin to jealousy, but being offended makes you mad and judgmental.
The spirit of offense will either make you want to run and hide or verbally slanderous, maybe even vicious.
Getting Delivered STEP ONE:
Offense is a spirit, ie, spirit of the world, spirit of jealousy, familiar spirit, lying spirit, perverse spirit and so on. Generally speaking, the spirit IS what it is named – obviously Legion is not. Regardless, offense is a spirit, so we can deal with it in the same manner as any other spirit.
When dealing with spirits, understand and remember that we have total authority over them. Jesus said in Luke 10:19-20, “Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you. 20 Nevertheless, do not rejoice at this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are enrolled in heaven.”
Also in Luke 7:7-9, “But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 8For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell one to go, and he goes; and another to come, and he comes. I tell my servant to do something, and he does it. 9When Jesus heard this, He marveled at the centurion,” (because the centurion understood heaven’s chain of command and how authority operates in the Kingdom!) So all you have to do is “speak a word” in faith and belief and all of heaven jumps at your command. That’s powerful!
Getting Delivered STEP TWO:
Once you realize that Offense is a spirit, you are most of the way to home plate. So, here are the steps:
Getting Delivered STEP THREE:
NOW comes the hard part:
A) repent to everyone that Holy Spirit puts in front of you to repent to, verbally or in writing; and
B) repent to those that YOU are offended with.
This one is really hard, because they may not even know that you are offended. They may ask you what you were offended by. Be ready to tell them. Ask for their forgiveness, whether it’s A or B. If they are unwilling, love them anyway. Repent anyway. It’s not about them, it’s about you and God.
Don’t be surprised to find out that you have offended MANY more people than you thought you did! Once you start down this trail the Holy Spirit will leave no stone unturned…in fact, it may seem as though offended people are crawling out from under every rock. But don’t go hide under the rocks that they just crawled out from under. Keep at it. It will eventually end, and your wine will flow because you are uncorked!
THEN, once you have repented, work to not be offended – or offensive – again. If you find yourself getting offended, repent again. Keep yourself on a short leash.
Most of these things we must learn first-hand. Unfortunately, with offense, we are usually the last to know that we are offended, and offensive as a result. But once we have learned this valuable lesson, it is difficult to forget! We are quick to repent and ask for forgiveness once we have cleaned up our messy trail.
Many blessings to you as you clean up behind yourself! Just remember, you are not in this alone! Holy Spirit will help you every step of the way! Ask Him – He is your Paraclete, the Comforter and the Helper.
