I love words! Being a writer means that paper is my canvas and words are my paint. Finding the right word to describe something seen in the spirit or in the natural is vital to helping the reader to understand and have vision.
Our ministry is called, “Inscribe Ministries” based off of the verse from Habakkuk 2:2 that says,
“Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.”
To write a vision requires the right words which bring about understanding to the reader or listener of “how to run!“ It’s so powerful.
Jesus is called the 𝐿𝑖𝑣𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑊𝑜𝑟𝑑 because He encompasses everything found within the Word. All creation came forth from the words He spoke. There is power in words; to bless or to curse, to speak life or speak death, to empower or disempower and to build up or to tear down, to create or to destroy.
Our words matter! We must ask the Lord to train our mouths to speak words that bless, give life and empower those around us to run. Your words are usually a good way to x-ray your heart,
“A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.“ Luke 6:45
This is why we must follow the wisdom found in Philippians 4:8,
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
As we think on these things they renew our hearts and minds causing what comes forth from our mouths to profit those who hear our words. When I was a new believer my heart and mind still needed to be renewed by the Word therefore critical, negative, fretful and judgmental words would leak out; always exposing what needed to be cleaned out of my heart. God was not condemning me, but if I were honest, my words were a clear sign of where my heart needed to be cleaned and renewed.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10
When my husband and I were directing a house of prayer for Patricia King she would lead prayer sessions with us where we would “decree the Word of God.“ These times trained our team and all who attended how much power comes forth as we decreed His written Word! I quickly saw the fruitful harvest that would come when I spoke aloud His Word over my life and my family’s lives. Decreeing His Word is like allowing your heart to be strained through the Spirit of Truth; filtering out all the dross.
I remember asking the Lord to put a coal of fire near my lips so that I would not speak anything unholy.
“So I said: “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The LORD of hosts.” Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged.”” Isaiah 6:5-7
These verses come right before the verse that says, “Here am I, send me.” This is so important before being “sent.” We must be sent with words of life, hope, truth that prosper and edify the hearer. We must go forth with hearts that have been made clean.
As we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel regarding this global quarantine, I believe that the eyes of the Lord are searching the earth for the ones He might send. But let us first pray the scriptures written above. We need pure hearts, clean hands, words that have been freed from the grip of iniquity and thoughts that profitable to the hearer! We need words that release vision and cause the sent ones to run with purpose.
Today, listen to your words so that you can do a ℎ𝑒𝑎𝑟𝑡 𝑐ℎ𝑒𝑐𝑘. Then, if you find that your words are revealing areas that need to be renewed and cleansed; don’t enter into guilt or condemnation because God loves it when we receice His lovingkindness that brings discipline. He is so happy that you desire a clean heart and He has provided you 𝑊𝑂𝑅𝐷𝑆 𝑇𝑂 𝐿𝐼𝑉𝐸 𝐵𝑌.
It’s time to prepare to be sent ones! We must carry words of life that bear fruit wherever they are sown.
Thank you to each of my readers who have stood with us in prayer and financial support during this time. We are praying and decreeing all of His blessings and promises over your life and family.
“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
The Lord spoke to me that today begins a month of extravagant and extraordinary grace; 𝑔𝑟𝑎𝑐𝑒 𝑢𝑝𝑜𝑛 𝑔𝑟𝑎𝑐𝑒! He is inviting His people to 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙗𝙤𝙡𝙙𝙡𝙮 to His throne of grace where you will receice mercy, grace and help for 𝗔𝗟𝗟 that you need.
Need often causes us to become aware of our weakness and dependency upon God. Therefore, this time of need has created an invitation to “come boldly before His throne of grace.“ His throne is where our help comes from. Most are standing in unemployment lines, lines to enter grocery stores and welfare lines but there is a place that there is no line, no wait and no need to prove or explain your need- it is a place of help, grace and compassion. There is no fear or shame in this place; only help and joy.
“And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” II Corinthians 12:9
In May we will see a great manifestation of the strength (power) of God being made perfect (manifest) in the midst of need (weakness). The power of God will rest upon you in ways that strengthen you, uphold you and help you.
This is not a time to come under a spirit of despair because of your need or your weakness but it is time to be clothed in bold confidence and approach the throne where our Savior is seated and distributes grace without measure- He just says, “𝘾𝙤𝙢𝙚.“
Get ready to be a walking testimony of His power and grace coming uoon you! Many will ask you how you are thriving in this time and you will take them by the hand and lead them to the throne of grace to receive help.
We will have the spirit of prophesy resting upon us as the testimony of His faithfulness is made known to those around us.
“I will make known the Lord’s faithful love and the Lord’s praiseworthy acts, because of all the Lord has done for us — even the many good things he has done for the house of Israel, which he did for them based on his compassion and the abundance of his faithful love.” Isaiah 63:7
May you approach Him with bold confidence as we enter the month of May!
Last week I was listening to a pastor and very successful businessman who was talking about the key to his success. He said it is believing the “surelys” in the Bible! First he brought us to Hebrews 6:14 that says,
“Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.” Hebrews 6:14 NKJV
Then he brought us to the most known Psalm— Psalm 23, verse 6 where it says,
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…” Psalms 23:6
He said that every morning he begins His day by praying and decreeing the “surely” truths over his life. I am calling it “The Surely Effect”!
As he prayed these verses over his life he said that he saw the cartoon character from the Charlie Brown strip named, Pigpen. Pigpen had a cloud of dirt that followed him wherever he went— it went before him, behind him and beside him. The Lord showed him that the “surely” promises of blessings, multiplication, mercy and loving kindness would encircle his life in the same way that the dust cloud encircled Pigpen’s life.
Once again…it is what I’m calling the “Surely Effect.” Isn’t it time to walk in His promises? To agree with, align with and decree them as a promised truth over everything you do and everything you touch?
Surely means assurance and confidence which is the same meaning as HOPE in regards to our faith. Faith is the assurance of things hoped for! It is confident expectation and assurance that what God says it true. He cannot lie!
It’s time to align with the “Surely Effect”! This will renew your faith and become a truth that surrounds you like a cloud of favor and promise.
Yesterday I did a Facebook live that talked about shaking off disappointment and going back to the trust that says, “He who promised is faithful.” (Hebrews 11:11). Far too often believers align with a false “surely” that tells a lie about our God. It says that surely you will be disappointed, surely you will lack, surely you will fail…and so on! But that is a lie that needs to be trampled like a snake under our feet. The truth is that for every believer, “Surely goodness and loving kindness, blessings and multiplication…and no lack” will follow you.
As I have been spending time with the Lord this morning I was shown a vision of this “quarantine time” but in it I was in an optometrist office receiving an eye exam and being fitted for lenses that would bring my vision back to 20/20.
Many prophetic voices prophesied words about 20/20 vision coming in 2020. I recently came across a post from a man who was mocking those words and saying that this pandemic has proven the prophetic voices wrong. Well, I don’t know about you but for me personally this has been a time of seeing the state of my body, soul and spirit with greater clarity then ever before! The Spirit has been searching my life and my heart and giving me 20/20 vision to see what was formerly blurred by all the busyness and clutter in my soul.
I have never seen the finished work of the cross as clearly as I do right now. The power of His blood is bringing forth a personal reformation that is washing away everything that has usurped the true source of life and liberty. Much of what I saw were “good things” but not what I needed— for they were blocking my view of Him. It was like looking upon the wardrobe of someone you love but not truly seeing the person or the owner of the garments. My life was like a closet, stuffed full of His garments and yet little room for Him!
For me, it’s been like a fog has lifted (a veil has torn) and I can see again. Now I can partner with Him and yield to the work of His Spirit within me to bring me into greater “oneness with Christ.” Isn’t that the last thing that Jesus prayed before going to the cross?
“I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.” John 17:21
How can we be one with one another if we are not first and foremost “one with God?” How will the world know if we are not—“in Him?” The verse above says, “…And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.”
We have read these words thousands of times; prayed them, preached them and prophesied them! But until this time I do not know if we could “see” the way into oneness because we have been so divided in our own hearts and lives by the “things of Him” rather than Him alone. This “Selah” has stopped the speed of life that was blurring the very things we claim to hold dear.
If you are driving in a speeding vehicle everything that you pass by is blurred due to the speed you are moving at. But if you stop the vehicle and get out you can view your surroundings with clear focus and finally see the little details you missed at high speed. Often those details will include “the little foxes that spoil the vineyard.”
“Catch all the foxes, those little foxes, before they ruin the vineyard of love, for the grapevines are blossoming!” Song of Songs 2:15
We are in a spiritual “early Spring.” The grapevines of our love are blossoming and this pause or Selah has stopped us so that we see clearly and can “catch the little foxes” that seek to ruin the vineyard. If you run after a fox it will run away and most likely outrun you; but if you stop and are very still you can trap that fox and remove it from the vineyard of your life.
It is also very difficult to nurture love on the run! You must stop and get face to face and heart to heart with the one you love. The seeds of love grow underground in the hidden place where “soil and seed” are joined. It takes stillness, time, patience and watering to yield the fruit within. The same is true with our relationship with God and with people. I love the convergences of ministries but I long for the oneness of hearts even more. But first I must nurture my love with Christ.
I believe that the “20/20 vision in 2020” prophetic words may be the most accurate words ever prophesied into a new year. Did we expect it to come in this way— NO! But isn’t that usually the case with the prophetic? We hear what He plans to do but we rarely know how He will do it. His ways are not our ways nor His thoughts our thoughts! And honestly, if we knew beforehand the details of “how” we’d probably try to orchestrate and control it and mess it up. What a wise Father we have!
One of the words the Lord spoke to me regarding 2020 was the word, “Jubilee.” A Jubilee Year is a time when all debts are forgiven. In the midst of what appears to be an unprecedented global economic crisis this word, “Jubilee” surely seems to be a major miss! Or is it?
For me personally, I feel like my soul is receiving an emotional and spiritual jubilee! The deeper revelation of the finished work of the cross that paid every debt is bringing me into a jubilee season like never before. I knew this truth before but it is becoming a deeper experiential reality that is not only catching the little foxes but it is causing me to become “one with Him.” I pray that this Jubilee will touch our economy as well but I am so overjoyed that it is first touching my soul and your soul.
So. YES— 2020 is a year of 20/20 vision. You must get still and allow our Great Optometrist, Jesus Christ, to examine you and give you new lenses. It’s time to see!
Thank you to each of my readers who have stood with us in prayer and support during this time— we could not do this without you! We pray for each of you by name!
Yesterday I was sent an email that shared a dream that someone had which had me in it. She did not know what it meant but felt that she was to share it with me. As I read it I received insight regarding what the Lord was saying through this dream. I believe it clearly points to a demonic plot against our president that can be likened to Absalom’s plot to kill King David (and all those with him) in 2 Samuel 17.
“I will strike while he is weary and exhausted, and terrify him; and all the people with him will flee [in terror]. Then I will attack the king alone,” 2 Samuel 17:2
The dream begins on the outskirts of an alligator infested swamp where I am with the person who had the dream and other intercessors. We see the oldest, largest and most hidden alligator that lives in this swamp and grass was growing on the back of this great beast. The grass was there to camouflage and hide him from being seen. People were walking upon this grass completely unaware of what was right under their feet.
I believe that the swamp represents the United States of America. Our president is known for saying, “Drain the swamp!” But, the enemy knows that if we drain the swamp we will expose this Leviathan.
After the “swamp scene” the dream changes. In the next part of the dream I am instructing the intercessors to go to Colorado Springs. We go there and I go into a room with a bed in it and lay face down on it in order to receive a “word from the Lord.” Suddenly the Spirit of the Lord falls on me causing me to shake so severely that I fall off of the bed and onto the floor; shaking under His power. As I read this part I felt that it could represent the importance of the word that I will receive; which could be the interpretation to this dream.
I find it interesting that I send this group to Colorado Springs since this is where Lou Engel is now living and leading our nation into prayer and fasting from his home there. I also found out that Vice President Pence arrived in Colorado Springs the same day I received the dream (April 18th) which I believe speaks to the NOW timing upon this dream. Our Vice President is the head of the Coronavirus task force therefore God may be asking for prayer for him and his leadership in this role.
The last part of this dream is that the person (who had this dream) was with me in the room when the Spirit fell on me. She was holding her “revelation journals” and all she remembers is that she wanted giving me a scripture out of 2 Samuel. That concluded the dream.
The person who had this dream could not remember the chapter or verse reference from 2 Samuel. Yet when I read the dream I felt led to ask her the date that she had the dream and she told me the early morning hours of the 17th. I felt the Spirit say, “Go to 2 Samuel 17 and you will know what is happening.” So, I first went to the early verses in 2 Samuel 17. That is when I read these words that captured my attention,
“I will strike while he is weary and exhausted, and terrify him; and all the people with him will flee [in terror]. Then I will attack the king alone,” 2 Samuel 17:2
Please read thorough 2 Samuel 17 regarding the plans of Absalom to take King David’s life. I feel convinced that the enemy has a plot to destroy our president and cause those standing him to run from him in terror (leaving him exposed).
Let’s pray that our president will listen to the voices of the prophets in his life and follow their instructions. A spirit of rebellion is plotting against him in a time where he is weary and exhausted. It’s an Absalom spirit that wants to take the place of “king” and rally the people under his leadership. Through the words of the prophet a strategy is made to save the King David. Because of this strategy King David and those with him are rerouted and saved causing Absalom’s plans to thwarted. He then hangs himself.
There is a victory if we pray and bring wisdom and warning to our president. Let us get on our faces and pray!
Thank you to all of my readers who have stood with us in financial support throughout this quarantinetime. My husband and I are so incredibly grateful for you and we pray for you and your households each day.
When the coronavirus first began to be revealed, prior to the quarantine orders, the Lord was whispering the words from the first verses of Song of Solomon 3 into my spirit. I want to share these verses with you from The Amplified Bible,
““On my bed night after night [I dreamed that] I sought the one Whom my soul loves; I sought him but did not find him. I said ‘So I must arise now and go out into the city; Into the streets and into the squares [places I do not know] I must seek him whom my soul loves.’ I sought him but I did not find him. The watchmen who go around the city found me, And I said, ‘Have you seen him whom my soul loves?’ Scarcely had I passed them When I found him whom my soul loves. I held on to him and would not let him go Until I had brought him to my mother’s house, And into the chamber of her who conceived me.”” Song of Solomon 3:1-4 AMP
The words, “When I found him whom my soul loves…I held on to him and would not let him go.” echoed in my heart like a voice calling into an deep canyon of desire. I was longing to return to the deep place where He alone is my every “desire fulfilled.” I deeply longed to throw off everything that hindered that pursuit because I knew that it would take me back to first love; which must be the source and foundation for for all that I do.
Just as in our earthly marriages; we can get to points and times where we are merely “going through the motions.” It’s not that we do not still love our spouses, but due to busyness (parenting, careers, responsibilities) we forget the passions and longings that we shared when our love was new. If we remain in that place without rekindling or reawakening love, it will eventually grow cold. Our “I love you” will become just words that end a phone call or salutation rather than an ongoing experience that takes us to new depths of oneness with each other.
This is true with our walk with the Lord as well. In January and February, as these words were stirring in my soul, a hunger was growing inside of me to throw off every hinderance and run fully after Him to awaken first love once again. I wasn’t satisfied with merely going through the motions or saying the right words apart from a place of passionate pursuit. I didn’t want all that I did to merely become “works.”
Then came March when a sudden HALT came to the entire earth. It was like the Commander of the Host of Heaven’s army arrived on the chaotic scene of busyness and commanded everything to “BE STILL!” Since that point many have been living out a sudden self-awareness of their spiritual state. This abrupt “stop” has allowed for us to come into much needed awareness of the condition of our relationships; with God, our spouses, our families and with one another.
For me personally, it took a couple of weeks for my mind and my soul to begin to slow and truly “be still.” Though outside activities had stopped, my mind and long-standing habits of busyness still vied for first place and for my affections. But the ongoing voice of my Beloved patiently persisted in His pursuit for me to “find Him and not let Him go!”
As I began to allow the reset and adjustments of my soul to take place I could feel an awakening beginning to take place. Then— a dear friend, David Bradshaw (who is also my pastor), began doing a daily broadcast that is walking viewers verse-by-verse through the book, Song of Solomon. As I was watching one of these broadcasts I felt the Spirit say to me, “Your works are about to become ACTS as you allow first love to be awakened. This will be your personal Pentecost as you wait in the upper room.”
My heart immediately knew what He was saying! When He said that my works would become ACTS I knew that there was a clear distinction. It was like moving from “going through the motions” to what the disciples experienced in the Book of Acts. As they waited in the upper room the were like the Shulamite who left the comforts of her room and were running through the streets looking for the one her soul loved. Though they were still and locked in (waiting), just as we are today, their souls were searching and desperately waiting to be filled with the promise that would awaken them. And sure enough their Day of Pentecost came,
“On the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place. Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them. And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages, as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability.” Acts 2:1-4
In this place, this upper room, there were Jews (and gentile converts) from every nation together. As the “tongues of fire” settled on each one they began to speak in the native language of those from other nations that were present and they declared (in languages that were not their own) the awesome and wonderful works of God.
God’s “wonderful works” are NEVER void or separated from the absolute passionate adoration and oneness that is shared by our Triune God. The Son is always revealing His Father, the Father is always revealing His Son and the Holy Spirit is revealing the Father and the Son in the fullness of oneness and agape love. As the “works of God” were being revealed and declared through the tongues of fire; they became prophecy for the very ACTS that they would do from that day onward. Peter spoke these words,
“‘AND IT SHALL BE IN THE LAST DAYS,’ says God, ‘THAT I WILL POUR OUT MY S PIRIT UPON ALL MANKIND; AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, AND YOUR YOUNG MENSHALL SEE [divinely prompted] VISIONS, AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM [divinely prompted] DREAMS; EVEN ON MY BOND-SERVANTS, BOTH MEN AND WOMEN, I WILL IN THOSE DAYS POUR OUT M Y SPIRIT And they shall prophesy. AND I WILL BRING ABOUT WONDERS IN THE SKY ABOVE AND SIGNS (attesting miracles) ON THE EARTH BELOW, BLOOD AND FIRE AND SMOKING VAPOR. THE SUN SHALL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THE GREAT AND GLORIOUS DAY OF THE LORD COMES. AND IT SHALL BE THAT EVERYONE WHO CALLS UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD [invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord Jesus] SHALL BE SAVED (rescued spiritually).’” Acts 2:17-21
When love grows cold, ACTS turn into “the works of men” rather than the “wonderful works of God.” But when the bride is awakened to the true revelation of the one her soul loves, then mortal works (even good works) become “acts of God!” Miracles, signs and wonders will follow them because they have become one with Him (even as they are one— John 17:20-23).
What happened after that is that those who were filled on the Day of Pentecost began preaching with power that caused those who heard their message to truly repent and turn to God!
As we wait in our “upper rooms” during this time and search for the One our souls love, we will experience a personal Pentecost that will fill us with power from on high as it aligns us in “oneness with Christ”; revealing the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to those who have never repented and turned to Him. When we are one the world will “know and believe!”
The message that we will carry from this time (this upper room waiting time) will be understood by those who have never heard this “language” before. We will speak, by the unction of His Spirit, in a language that the world can understand— causing them to repent and turn to God. This will bring in the greatest harvest ever seen!
But first we must respond. We must stop and allow for the time of waiting in the upper room to take place. This is where we search for Him until we find Him and then we never let Him go. The Spirit will fall on us with the fulfillment of Jesus’ prayer in John 17:20-23,
““My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:20-23
When a couple is married the two become one flesh. God is bringing forth oneness; not mere unity— but rather oneness with Christ and oneness with one another. As we become one with Him we, in turn, see others as He sees them and can be one with them through the revelation of His agape love.
It is the time to “be still and know!” There is an unbreakable “knowing” that comes through the intimacy of oneness. When Mary was visited by the angel who announced that she would conceive a son, she questioned him saying, “How can this be since I have never known a man?” (Luke 1:34) This “knowing” is speaking of sexual intimacy which is a human and physical act that brings oneness and bears fruit. It is an earthly representation of a spiritual truth. The spiritual act of intimacy also ushers in oneness and bears fruit through the revelation of Jesus— our eternal Bridegroom.
Continue to wait in your upper room and yet run in your spirit to search for Him. Oneness is coming which will reform and transform everything and everyone. Then…the world will know!
Thank you to all of my readers who have stood with us in prayer and financial support at this critical time. We are praying for you by name and declaring all of His promises to be made manifest in your life and your family.
This morning Lana Vawser posted a word about a vision where she saw God’s people “throwing their 2020 calendars into the fire.” As I read these words I began to ponder why, for the first time in thirty years, I did not buy a wall calendar or daily planner for 2020? Was it because we were moving in January and I was just too busy? But, no…I always pick it out in December and my sweet husband gets it for me for Christmas. But I just didn’t feel to as we entered 2020. I felt like there was no way to plan what the Lord would do.
Proverbs 16:9 says, “The heart of man plans his ways, but the Lord establishes his steps.”
This verse has always filled me with such confidence in going forward into the future. It has filled me with hope and joy to know that even if I get “my plans” wrong that He will order and establish my steps as I live in a posture of surrender and of yielding to His will.
But suddenly even our steps are stopped! Plans are cancelled and a divine “moment in time” has been established. I asked the Lord, “What are Your steps for me in this time.” I was answered by a vision of my shoes coming off and my feet leaving the ground as my “knees were being established.” With that vision my heart bowed down in worship, in silent meditation, in prayer and in knowing that HE IS GOD. My knees have become my established posture and single step for 2020.
So many prophesied that 2020 would be a year of divine focus and clear vision and there has never been a more accurate word! As the planners have been set aside, the events stopped and the calendars reveal only blank boxes, suddenly the Bride has gone in to the chambers with her Bridegroom to rediscover first love. And it is within these closed doors of intimacy that He is sharing His mysteries with her; even His strategies and His plans. But first, He is awakening love!
Yesterday morning I looked at my husband and said, “What is that fragrance that you are wearing?” He looked at me a bit baffled and replied, “Deodorant. The same one I wear everyday.” But I was all the way across the room and a fragrance that was so refreshing, clean and awakening filled my senses. I lingered in it and knew that I must be smelling the fragrance of “love awakening.” There is a fragrance of “oneness” that is awakening His bride.
The doorway into His chambers are often found in that place where our shoes are removed and our feet cease to move– it’s the place where we enter in upon our knees. I saw “knees established” so that future steps will be aligned. There is no going back and we do not want to; this is a time to move forward from a personal awakening and reformation that sparks a global awakening and reformation. For me, it’s a time to lay it all down and yield. Yield to “oneness with Christ” which only happens in His chambers. Oneness doesn’t happen in crowds or in events, it happens in the chambers of our hearts and behind closed doors.
A new wine skin is being established that will hold the new wine that will be poured out. If God had poured out the new wine into the old wine skin it surely would have burst and been wasted. Be ever so careful to not hold onto the old ways, the former plans and as Lana spoke, “…to want to get back to what we were doing before this Selah.” We must receive the invitation into His chambers where we yield to Him in a oneness that comes only through intimacy and communion together. Oneness will hold the new wine. It is the true answer to Jesus’ prayer in John 17:21-23, “That they would be one even as we are one…”
Remove your shoes and allow your steps to cease and your knees to be established. There is a great awakening but it is happening first in the chambers of intimacy. It is there that He will establish oneness (He will set it as a seal upon your heart) and then He will share the mysteries and the secrets of His heart.
My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise my darling, my beautiful one, come away with me.” Song of Solomon 2:10
Let your steps take you to your knees where you will arise and go with Him to the place that love is awakened and oneness is sealed.
Thank you to all those who have stood with us through this time with prayers and financialsupport. We are so very grateful to you!
Today is the 10th day of Nissan on the Hebrew calendar, which is the last Sabbath prior to Passover. Why is this significant? This is the day that during the captivity of the Israelites in Egypt God asked them to pick a spotless lamb (one without blemish) and to bring it into the house. This lamb would reside with the family over the next few days before “becoming the Passover lamb” who’s blood would be placed upon the doorposts of their home and cause the angel of death to pass by; sparing their first born sons.
There are a few points I’d like to highlight regarding this significant day where we remember the “lamb being brought into the house.”
First, during the time of captivity in Egypt the lamb was an Egyptian idol. Many of the Israelites had come under the belief system of Egypt during the 400 years of captivity and had adopted their idols as their own. Therefore, to use a lamb, especially a spotless lamb, for the sacrifice was to break the idolatry within the hearts of the Israelites prior to their deliverance from Egypt. It was also a statement where God is announcing to the “gods of Egypt” that He alone is God.
The lamb being brought into the house to “live among them” is such a beautiful prophetic picture of how Jesus, the spotless Lamb, would come and live among us prior to becoming the sacrifice that would cause eternal death to pass by us– offering us a way to eternal life and freedom from captivity.
The 10th of Nissan was when the lamb came to live with families. What a beautiful picture of the Lamb of God who came to restore His family. I am sure that the children of the home must have played with this little lamb and enjoyed the presence of this lamb during it’s few short days inside of the home. Even today, His presence is to be enjoyed and received by the young and old alike. Who doesn’t think that a lamb is so very precious? Earlier this year the Lord told me that very soon we would see infants “entertained by His presence.” I literally saw babies in the cribs giggling and being entertained by His playful and glorious presence being made manifest to them.
During this year, the Passover season is especially recognized. Never before has the entire Earth had a “plague” or pandemic that has caused the whole human population to be asked to go behind closed doors and stay with their families. I am praying and declaring that as this is occurring that suddenly families would see “the Spotless Lamb- Jesus our Savior” in their homes and they would receive Him. I am praying this for both the homes of the Believers and the homes of those who have not recognized that Jesus is the One who saves. He is their Passover Lamb.
I declare over every home and every family- “The Lamb is in the house!” Declare these words in your home and over your family. Let His presence fill your home and bring joy to your children. Yes, the very Lamb that came to dwell among us was sacrificed for our sins but He rose again and is alive forevermore. He once again is in our house to never again leave. He will never leave you or forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6, Hebrews 13:5).
The Lamb is in the house! The blood of Abel cried out, “Justice” but the Blood of Jesus cries out, “Mercy!” His blood speaks a better word! Mercy triumphs over judgement once again.

As I was reading through Job 5, I felt the Lord ask me to rewrite it to make it into a personal declaration prayer for you to declare over your lives and your homes today. His Word does not return “empty or void” but accomplished all that He desires (Isaiah 55:11).
“God, I present my case to you.
You do great things too marvelous to understand. You perform countless miracles. You give rain for the earth and water for the fields.
You give prosperity to the poor and protect those who suffer. You frustrates the plans of schemers so the work of their hands will not succeed. You trap the wise in their own cleverness so their cunning schemes are thwarted. They will find it is dark in the daytime, and they will grope at noon as if it were night.
You rescue the poor from the cutting words of the strong, and rescue them from the clutches of the powerful. And so at last the poor have hope, and the snapping jaws of the wicked are shut.
You will save us from death in time of famine, from the power of the sword in time of war. We will be safe from slander and have no fear when destruction comes. We will laugh at destruction and famine; wild animals will not terrify us. We will be at peace with the stones of the field, and its wild animals will be at peace with us.
We will know that our homes are safe. When we survey our possessions, nothing will be missing.
We will have many children; our descendants will be as plentiful as grass!
We will go to the grave at a ripe old age, like a sheaf of grain harvested at the proper time!” Job 5:8-26 NLT
He is faithful and true and His Word goes forth with power and authority. Let hope arise and confidence in God give your inner man strength!
We are declaring these words over you as well as over our home and our family— you are our family!
