Count the Cost! Insist with Your List!

During my prayer time recently, I heard the Lord say, “This is a new season of abundance, one unlike any other that has come before!” Needless to say, I was excited! Many of us can use abundance, including me!

Around the same time, the Lord asked me, “Do you know what you need to do?”

When God asks those kinds of questions, I answer in the most honest way that I can: “No, Lord.  What do I need to do?” He responded that I needed to make lists to pray over.

“Remember,” He said, “like you used to do, a long time ago.”

I quickly agreed. I knew exactly what he was talking about! When I first became serious in my Christian walk, my friends and I used to make lists and pray over them, together and separately. We had no idea how powerful a thing it was!

Counting the Cost!                                                                                                                                                               I grabbed a brand new notebook and started. I made a list of things to pray over, things that we NEED to fulfill our God-purpose, including the “cost” of each item. The list was very specific, with very specific items and amounts.

I got the impression as I made the list that He wanted me to focus in with pin point accuracy on the things that He wants us to have!  I gave each item to the Lord, as well as permission to change my list: to add to it or subtract from it. After all, it was truly His! Then I prayed the list.

Soon afterward, I came upon Luke 14:28 in which Jesus talked to the crowd about counting the cost:

For which of you, wishing to build a farm building, does not first sit down and calculate the cost [to see] whether he has sufficient means to finish it?”

WHOA! That is EXACTLY what I had been doing…counting the costs! But what I was doing with my list was different! It was nothing like I had been taught! See, this particular verse had always been quoted in a way that was negative. It had always been spoken over the body as if we never had enough, so we’d better sit down and figure out a way to scrimp and save. This verse had always been presented with a poverty mindset!

But that’s not what God meant! When God and I sat down to make our list, it was not poverty thinking at all!  It was more like, “Make sure you put enough down, because we want to be absolutely certain you have enough, and ask for a little more – just in case!”

Make a Supernatural Withdrawal from your account!                                               God wants us to have enough to accomplish what He wants us to do! He is not a God of poverty! He has more than enough, because he IS more than enough!  What we need to do is A.S.K.!

“Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you,” (Matthew 7:7 AMPC).

God owns everything, even the entire earth!

“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it,” (Psalm 24:1 AMPC).

He owns all the cattle (see Psalm 50:10), all the silver and all the gold, too!

“The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine, says the Lord of hosts,” (Haggai 2:8 AMPC).

If Daddy God owns everything, and we are heirs and joint-heirs with Christ Jesus (see Romans 8:17), then WE OWN IT ALL, TOO!  When He tells us to put something on our list, He is allowing us to make a supernatural withdrawal from our heavenly treasuries!

Remember the prodigal son in Luke 15:11-32? Here is another story that is always preached in a negative way!  The Prodigal asked his Dad for his portion of the inheritance before his Dad died, and his Dad gave it to him. THEN, when the prodigal got back home, His dad gave him even more!

Don’t you see? That’s US – you and me!  We can have our inheritance before we die, because when we get back home to heaven, He’s got still more waiting for us!  We just have to ask!  The older brother doesn’t ask, so he doesn’t receive. By not asking, what he DOES get is angry and jealous!

Insist with Your List!                                                                                                                                                               We are to ask! Just like the Israelites leaving Egypt, whom God commanded to require of their Egyptian neighbors their gold and jewels, we are to ask Him for it – even insist upon it with our lists – to strip Egypt and Babylon of its valuables! This is the transfer of wealth!

“But every woman shall [insistently] solicit of her neighbor and of her that may be residing at her house jewels and articles of silver and gold, and garments, which you shall put on your sons and daughters; and you shall strip the Egyptians [of belongings due to you],” (Exodus 3:22 AMPC).

Do you not have enough? Maybe you are not asking for enough! Ask for MORE than enough! Insist with your list in prayer, like the widow woman and the judge (see Luke 18:3-5)! She got justice, and so will you!

The Lord is asking for very specific lists because they are actually withdrawal slips for our heavenly bank accounts! We are lining out exactly what we need, and how much we need to withdraw! He has wanted to give us these things for a long time, but the fullness of time is now! It’s finally here! However, we cannot leave out the fact that each is for the glory of God! We have to ask HIM what He wants us to pray for, and then pray for it to get it – because He wants to give it to us anyway!  It’s in the BOOK!

And it’s NOT just money! Although my list was mostly funding for various items in this new season, I also included wisdom requests!  God is a God of wisdom, and He will give it to us liberally (see James 1:5).  As another example, one of my friends has wanted to get married for a very long time, and now he is!  Another of my friends has walked into a business for which she had absolutely no capital investment – and yet is now a full partner! It was just handed over to her! Another person I know is getting his heart’s desires fulfilled supernaturally – a change of career with a Bed and Breakfast and Retreat Center!

All of these were on someone’s list that they insistently prayed to the Father! Now God wants your list!  In fact, He wants you to Count the Cost and Insist with Your List!

Pray this: Father, please show me what you want to give me so I can put it on my list! I want to make a supernatural, heavenly withdrawal from my treasuries in heaven! You know what I need for this new season and how much that will cost. Thank you for showing me clearly what that is, so I can count the cost and insist with my list!  In Jesus’ Name! Amen.

Three Big Cats – A Word for South America, Asia and Africa

Three Big Cats – a word for Asia, Africa and South America

A short while back, I found myself in a vision where the instant I put my face to the ground I was snatched away and saw myself seated in outer space, facing the earth. This seat was similar to a seat from a vehicle.  It was even black vinyl and had a seat belt!  I guess it was a car-seat of sorts (with all that implies!)  I saw a giant finger flick me, causing me to spin in this car-seat in outer space, then stop spinning to face the earth again.  As I sat there, watching myself watch the earth, after a long while, absolutely nothing happened!  I was just sitting in this car-seat, watching the planet. I asked the Lord, “Why am I watching the earth?” He said, “You are a watcher, now.  It is the watcher series.”

In another recent vision, instantly, again as soon as I laid on my face, I saw a “big cat” break through some kind of barrier of darkness.  This cat was literally on fire.  It was a panther or a black lioness.  This cat was a cartoon-type drawing, black on black and drawn in flames, bursting through the darkness of whatever this barrier was.  The scene changed and I saw the big cat running, purposefully, as if it was headed somewhere, but now it was a tan panther or a lioness. Next, I saw in rapid succession a tiger and then a leopard, or a jaguar…a spotted big cat.

Where these big cats are found:  South America and Asia, Africa, parts of Europe.

Interpretation: The three big cats are three years.  The big cats also stand for BIG COUNTRIES with BIG MINDSETS and BIG POPULATIONS.  South America and Asia, where panthers are found, will become on fire for Revival simultaneously. Next will be Asia, again, for a double portion, where tigers are found; and then Africa, Asia and portions of Europe where leopards are found.  Asia gets a triple header!

Of particular note is the fact that ALL of these big cats are endangered species!  I believe He is drawing a parallel here with Christianity. It is statistically provable that Christians are definitely in the minority on these continents, perhaps even an endangered species! Oh, how the Lord loves an underdog to show Himself mighty! Think Gideon! Think the Exodus! (see Judges 7:6 and Exodus 14:22-23). When we are weak, He is strong (see 2 Corinthians 12:10)!

Interestingly, the flood of Revival may not begin in the big cities with big populations – it likely will begin in the rural areas.  Azusa began with only two men praying for hours each day, as did the Welsh Revival with two older women.  In those lonely, unpopulated places where these big cats survive is where the Holy Spirit Fire will break through. Revival Fire will catch and that fire will roar into the populated areas of these continents and countries, overtaking all other religions!

In addition, many new fire-brand Revivalists will be coming out of darkness, catching on fire for the Lord.  A black panther stands for high levels of witchcraft so this may mean that some revivalists will be forthcoming from the deepest, darkest places imaginable for revival to begin on these continents and in these countries.  These revivalists will break out and break through from places that no man can fathom to go into places that no man can imagine. They will come from the highest places in dark cultures, religions and principaities, and bring many into His marvelous light (see 1 Peter 2:9).

Revival is coming for sure!

The Oil Press of Prayer: Return to the Garden of Gethsemane!

I was watching “The Bible” movie again for the umpteenth time when the Lord started talking to me about Gethsemane.  As I studied this final evening in the garden prior to Jesus’ crucifixion, the Lord began to show me some things. For starters, I found that I had actually researched the name Gethsemane before. Not surprisingly, since God is a “patterns God”, that simply means that God had already established this pattern.  Then, realizing that Jesus is our template – our pattern – I believe that the Lord downloaded part of what He underwent in the garden that night as yet another pattern: a key strategy for REVIVAL!

Gethsemane itself means “Oil Press”.  The etymology of Gethsemane consists of two elements. The first part comes from the word (gat), meaning press. The second part comes from the root (smn) and may mean olive oil or eight – either of which works for me!  You see, olive oil is produced under pressure. Similarly, pressing in during prayer produces the new thing which would be the number eight – new beginnings!

My people have forsaken prayer!                                                                                          I believe that Jesus is our template for this life and that He is our model for our existence. Few would argue with this fact.  However, I believe this particular passage of scripture not only tells of Jesus’ crucifixion and the hours immediately preceding it…not only does it tell us how we should act, react and respond under pressure…but I believe there is another message, a deeper message as well, even a hidden message.  I believe that God is speaking to us in this hour about prayer.

A few days ago the Lord said to me, “My people have forsaken prayer!” He went on to say that we need to return to it, that we need to return to our first love.  He also said, “All great revivals have been birthed in prayer!”  I believe that His heart is this: in order to produce the results that we want to see, we have to return to the Oil Press of prayer.  We need to return to the garden of Gethsemane.

You see, Jesus went to this garden in order to save mankind. The sin of the world was so heavy upon Him as he prayed that it actually caused Him to sweat blood.  Luke 22:41 says that Jesus prayed that the cup would pass from Him (paraphrased), but it wasn’t until He went back to praying more intently, in Luke 22:44, that scripture says it actually happened:

“And being in agony [deeply distressed and anguished; almost to the point of death], He prayed more intently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down on the ground.”

More pressure = Richer Oil                                                                                                   In researching the oil press, it seems that the virgin oil, the “first cutting”, is obtained by crushing the olives and soaking them in hot water, allowing the virgin oil to float to the top, where it is skimmed off by hand.  The deeper oil, the second press, is where the oil obtains a darker, reddish brown color – very similar to blood in appearance.  One does not obtain this blood color oil – the deeper, richer oil – without an intense amount of pressure for a protracted amount of time.

This speaks volumes to me!  The first crushing is almost superficial.  This crushing during learning how to walk this Kingdom walk while being soaked in the hot water of the refiner’s fire, produces oil – for our own benefit! Likewise, any prayer that we have prayed so far for revival has issued forth only this first layer of oil.  It is not until we go back into our prayer closets, into our war rooms and really pray MORE INTENTLY, applying even greater amounts of pressure on heaven, that we will see the deeper, richer oils of revival for which we so long.

Pressure creates the blood of grapes.                                                                                But wait, there’s more! If a little bit of pressure and crushing along with some hot water creates oil, then a lot of pressure – intense pressure – will produce a darker oil, one with more substance, one that resembles blood….even the blood of grapes (see Genesis 49:11).  You see, the first part of the word (gat) by itself in Hebrew (gimel, tav) can also mean WINEPRESS. The second part, (smn) means oils or eight.  This literally translates into “winepress of oils” or “winepress of eight”. Again, either one works for the body in this hour – new wine, new oils and deeper, richer oil and wine for new beginnings and REVIVAL!

But it will only happen when we press in, praying even more in earnest, more intently for revival to come. Most of us are so busy that it is a challenge just to get into the prayer closet, let alone pray it through.  However, the old acronym for BUSY, “Buried Under Satan’s Yoke” still applies!  It is a favorite tactic of the enemy to keep us so busy that we cannot find time for the things that REALLY matter! We need to get UN-Busy with the things of the world and then get busy in the closet – our prayer closet.

Pray for strategies to come forth from heaven to get blueprints and directions to proceed. It is no accident that the Lord had me watching this movie of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane for the umpteenth time.  He has a plan that He wants to go forth about the Oil Press of Prayer. He wants us to press in like never before, battle the enemy on our knees, and come out victoriously on the other side!  He wants sustained revival even more than we do.  Let’s give it to Him!

Here’s to the new wine and oil of REVIVAL!
