We wanted to send you an update and praise report on our sudden and unexpected transition.
As most of you read in my previous update— we were praying about God’s direction for our next move. On June 1st we found out that we were going to have to move from our current home in the Washington DC region and both my husband and I immediately had a sense that the Lord was in it and that it was more than a move to a different house nearby.
As we sought the Lord and sought prayer and counsel from trusted friends, we all felt as though the Lord has given us two instructions:
1. Set up our “home base” back in the Portland, Oregon area (they need quite the spiritual support there).
2. Establish a new base in the DC region (we also need an incredible amount of spiritual reinforcements here).
One of the words we received is that God is setting us up as “bookends” in the nation that will help hold up east and west. Another word that came from almost everyone who prayed with us was, “Where is home?” The spiritual answer is that home is wherever Jesus has sent us (where he is) but the clear question was, “Where do we feel like home is?” We had to say, “It is in Oregon.”
Therefore, we are now making preparations for a double assignment— set up our home base in Oregon and set up a place to stay during our months in the DC region each year. We have created lifelong relationships and connections in both places.
I will not bore you with the hundreds of details that are involved in this huge transition but I will say that prayer is appreciated to see all the pieces fall into place at the right time. We have only about thirty days to see the first phase come together.
The first stage of this transition is getting to Oregon. This alone quickly became a minimum cost of $10k! We know that God provides for what he asks so we started the process with our confidence in him. Within 48 hours we had a miraculous $6k come in toward this portion of the move! We are overwhelmed by the kindness of God and generosity of his people. He is so good and faithful as we give our “yes” to him.
We quickly discovered that Covid not only effects everyday life but it has greatly effected costs of moving trucks, housing and everything in between. We are in need of another $5,000 in the next 30 days. It sounds like a tall order but as we saw during the first 48 hours— nothing is too tall for our God!
We need your prayers for strength, grace, protection, continued wisdom and open doors. We also need financial help to meet the need for the first stage of setting up the West Coast home base.
Today I opened my Bible this morning and it opened to this page in the Book of Psalms. Somehow my “I VOTED” sticker from the 2020 election got in there and the backing came off and it is stuck to Psalm 85, titled, “Restoration of Favor”
I did NOT stick it there and yet it is perfectly placed with no sign of the backing paper that it was on.
During 2020 one of my constant prayers was, “Let faithful love and truth be joined together; and righteousness and peace embrace.” Or…”kiss.” (Ps. 85:10)
Psalm 85 begins with these words,
“Lord, You show favor to Your land; You restored Jacob’s prosperity. You took away Your people’s guilt: You covered all their sin.” (Vs. 1-2)
At this time of great conflict in Israel, we pray this for the Jewish people and the land of Israel. We also repent as Americans of any time and any way that we have been a part of dividing the land or standing in opposition against His people.
I love verse 8-9,
Listen to what God will say, “Surely the Lord will declare peace to His people, to His godly ones, and not let them go back to foolish ways.”
His salvation is very near those who fear Him, so that glory may dwell in our land.”
As I turned to this page and saw the sticker— I felt the presence of the Lord say these words for His people in Israel and over His people in the United States. Though we are passing through this “Valley of Baca” (Trouble), we are just passing through— on our way to His house (Ps 84).
“Return to us, God of our salvation…show us your faithful love and give us Your salvation.” Amen!
In 2020 the Lord gave me what He called, “The Three R’s For 2020.” Those three “R’s” were the words “Remnant, Ruach (which means Breath of God) and Roar.” They became the three themes that I saw overlaid in all that was taking place. Though the world had entered a global pandemic and my nation (the United States of America) had entered a new type of civil war, the global remnant was moving in the Ruach and Roar of God! It was a sound that called us together as a global Ecclesia and empowered us through His the breath to released His mighty roar.
As we moved into the first two months of 2021 it was as if the sound ceased, the breath was held and the remnant was suddenly hidden from sight. But there is something happening in this third month of 2021. Can you feel the shaking beneath your feet? Can you feel the atmosphere beginning to tremble with the fear of the Lord. And can you hear the rattling of the dry bones beginning to move?
There is a saying that says, “March comes in like a lion but goes out like a lamb.” This is a line from an old English proverb that refers to how March often begins with extremely harsh weather but ends with mild weather. But the Lord spoke the reverse to me, He said, “March will come in like a lamb but will go out like a lion!”
I saw a vision of a tiny newborn lamb trying to rise. This newborn lamb was soft and pure white. It was making the tiny sound that made me think of what new life would sound like. I asked the Lord, “Who is this lamb?” And He replied, “My reborn ones.” I saw that something deep had occurred spiritually that caused a rebirthing in His remnant where they emerged white as snow, tender (soft) in their hearts and with the faith of a child.
Then the vision changed and I was suddenly taken back into an encounter that I had a few years back. In this encounter I was a small white lamb standing on a hillside looking down upon the walled city of Jericho. The voice of the Lord came to me and said, “Go down to the city and release your sound.” In this encounter I remember thinking, “I’m just a lamb and my sound is so very small.” But the voice of the Lord came once again and said, “Go down to the city and release your sound.” I began walking timidly toward the city and as I walked I noticed a large shadow overtop of me that I thought was a moving canopy. In my peripheral view I could see what appeared to be large poles moving with me as well. My first thought was that the Lord was covering me with His canopy of protection as I (in the form of this small lamb) was moving toward this walled city. When I was finally close to the city I heard Him say, “Now, release your sound.” I opened my mouth fully expecting the tiny bleet of a lamb to come forth but what came forth was the loudest lion’s roar I had ever heard. The sound caused the walls of this fortified city to crumble and the enemy (that held the city captive) scattered in every direction in absolute fear. Then, as this encounter continued, I suddenly found myself on a battlefield before an enormous enemy army. Standing front and center (at a distance) before me was the great giant, Goliath. Again I heard the words, “Go and stand before this giant and release your sound.” As I began to move forward the taunts and mockery from the army and from the giant were growing louder and louder. Yet, once again I noticed the shadow over me and the “poles” beside me as I walked forward (still in the form of a small lamb). When I was finally standing directly in front of the giant I heard the voice of the Lord say, “Look up.” I looked up and what I thought was a canopy of protection covering me was actually the under-belly of the largest lion I had ever seen. Then I looked and what I had thought were the poles where actually his four massive legs. I knew that the Lion of Judah had been walking with me (over me) the entire time. With this new understanding; faith and confidence filled me— for the Lion was much larger than the giant that stood before me. Then he said, “Release your sound.” Once again as I opened my mouth to release my sound what came forth was the roar of the Lion of Judah. The giant fell to his death and the enemy army ran in fear from that place where they had mocked me. Then I heard him speak the words, “I am with you— always!”
Then I was back in the vision that began this morning (March 8, 2021), when I saw the newborn pure white lamb that had been reborn. As I re-experienced the encounter from a few year back, so did this lamb. Then suddenly the lamb rose to its feet and took on the identity of the Lion of Judah. It took on the appearance, the sound and the power of the Lion of Judah. This vision ended with the words, “March will come in like a lamb but go out like a Lion.”
With this I saw the three “R’s” from 2020 (Remnant, Ruach and Roar) and then a fourth “R” was added— RISE! March will prove to be a month where we rise again! Like Jesus coming forth from the grave, the remnant will feel the breath of God, hear the roar of the Lion of Judah and we will RISE AGAIN!
The words, “Testing 1, 2, 3, 4” are most often heard when a person is doing a microphone sound check. It is to check clarity, levels and balance. So, it was interesting to wake up hearing these words. It is like a heavenly sound check is taking place. I then heard these words from the Book of James, chapter 1, verses 2, 3 & 4,
“2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
I wonder if too many of God’s people are trying to figure out what is going on by gauging the world around us? I hear statements like, “This is what I heard but this is what I see.” I surely understand and I get why there are questions, concerns and confusion. Personally, my world has been altered on so many levels but then I remind myself of Bible story after Bible story where absolute defeat turned into a greater victory than expected when the narration of events was written by God and not man. Here are just a few…
Young Joseph was given a dream and a coat of many colors that promised him authority, honor and favor but the promise did not play out like Joseph thought they would in his young mind. God’s narrative quite honestly seemed at best cruel and harsh; betrayal, slavery, isolation, abandonment, false accusation, imprisonments— but then the promise came to pass. The journey looked nothing like the dream but the outcome was so much greater and saved a nation in a time of great famine!
Then there was Moses. He went to Egypt as a deliverer of the Israelites but I guarantee you that each time he told Pharaoh to “Let my people go!” and the Israelites labor was increased and plagues came upon the land that they most likely not only questioned his authenticity but also did not view him as a deliverer. I imagine the accusations against Moses and Aaron were numerous. But God’s narrative once again played out much differently than even Moses expected. Not only were they delivered but their enemies were defeated.
Let’s not forget Lazarus! He was a personal friend of Jesus; a family friend where he found a home. Basically, Lazarus was an “insider” and counted among Jesus’ inner circle. When he gets sick his sisters know what to do…go get Jesus! Surely he will not let his personal friend die. He will come quickly and heal his friend. But no. He delays and almost seemingly strolls without any urgency to the home of his friend. He’s not only late, but Lazarus has been in the grave for days. The pain felt by all is real and raw. The questions of “where were you” and “if only you had been here” were intermingled with such deep grief. Yet, once again our God was not late but He was narrating a different story than anyone understood. The natural was not going to dictate the sovereignty of God or His ways. Although Lazarus was dead and it appeared final (nothing could be done)— then Jesus showed up and spoke, “Come forth!”
Last, Jesus came through a virgin birth, lived a sinless life, healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, fed thousands with only a small lunch and raised the dead. His disciples knew He was their long awaited Messiah. They had such hope, such promise and so much confidence in Him. They had seen the miracles and watched power flow from His hands. They knew that victory had come into a world of oppression. But then their precious Jesus was arrested, betrayed, beaten, crucified and put into a gave. Can you imagine the grief, the shock, the confusion and the questions. I am sure that there were many moments of great division as His disciples and followers tried to figure out what had just happened and who was at fault. I would imagine that there were fingers pointed at one another and accusations made. Pain often looks for a reason or for “what went wrong and who is to blame?” It was not a pretty sight…where had love and unity gone? But then the third day came…God’s narrative once again prevailed in the greatest victory known to mankind happened in the greatest moment of division and despair.
Here we are again…
2021 has begun with what many are perceiving as the greatest defeat they have seen in their lifetime. An increasingly horrific global pandemic, oppression and evil manifesting like the plagues of Egypt, economic ruin for so many and the shock in America upon a church that prayed, repented for the sins of their nation, humbled themselves before the Lord and walked in faith regarding what they heard the Spirit speaking to them…then the opposite happened. But even when the narrative on earth looks nothing like what we thought it would— does that mean that we have been defeated? It surely looks like absolute defeat (for our freedom, for the unborn, for our children, for our safety and for righteousness to prevail). But God…
In this place of what appears to be contradiction to our faith suddenly fingers are pointing at one another, people are in pain, in grief and in confusion. They are looking for someone to blame or clinging to the narrative that they thought would occur. But God’s narrative always has a deeper work to be done.
What if the “testing of our faith” is upon us so that we become steadfast, complete and lack nothing? Maybe in the midst of emotional turmoil and deep grief we should stop trying to figure out the Almighty and begin to “count it all joy” that our faith is being tested. Maybe we should stop pointing fingers and instead raise our heads so that we see the face of God. Maybe…just maybe, a much deeper work is being done.
For me— my personal losses and pain is bringing up dross that needed to be removed. Places that I didn’t even know that I had held unresolved issues have suddenly been uncapped so that I can be washed and purified by His blood.
This is my “sound check” moment. It’s like God has put a stethoscope to my heart and is saying, “Testing, 1, 2, 3, 4.” I believe this is happening for all who are willing. He’s clearing and purifying the sound of our hearts. He’s balancing and aligning us to His heart, His ways and His pure sound. He’s removing every obstacle that blocks the pure sound of His good news and perfect love.
This is our James 1: 2,3,4 time. Let us count it all joy and then watch a greater victory than we ever imagined come forth as we see a bride without spot or wrinkle emerge. We have not been defeated…we are having our faith tested and it is time to allow Him to make every adjustment needed.

Two months ago the Spirit of the Lord told me that 2021 would be a “wrestle or a dance” for his people. He extended an invitation to enter the dance with him but he also made it clear to me that many would not receive his invitation. The ones who do not take his hand and dance with him will walk according to their own steps (and wisdom) resulting in a painful wrestle. This word helped me to continue to fully yield and surrender to his invitation to follow his lead and keep my eyes fixed on his.
We are less than two weeks into 2021 and I keep hearing people say how they are wrestling with what it happening in our world, with what is true, what is from God and what they are seeing with their eyes. Quite honestly, I don’t think that there is anyone who hasn’t had a bit of a wrestle because the world is shouting at us to look upon the “things of the world” and we wrestle to keep our eyes on things above. What was once familiar in this world has suddenly become unfamiliar and uncomfortable. Yet, God has not changed and he is still our Comforter.
When I began to find myself wrestling to “keep my eyes on things above”, I asked the Lord a very serious question, “Have I left the dance that you are leading and entered the wrestle that you warned us about?”
He responded by revealing to me that there are two types of wrestle— one that rebels against his leadership and one that wrestles down the flesh to enter into full submission and surrender to his leading.
After Jacob wrestled with God his name was changed from Jacob to Israel. Israel means, “The one who has prevailed with God.” His wrestle changed and aligned his life to prevail with God. To prevail means: To prove more powerful than opposing forces; to be victorious.
God has prevailed over his enemies! He has prevailed against sin and death; he is inviting us into “prevailing with him!” While this is our desired posture- often we first have to wrestle down the narrative that this world has written upon our souls. The narrative of doubt, skepticism, unbelief, defeat and fear always fight against God’s prevailing victory like a boat tossed about by a raging sea.
Those carnal narratives can lead us to hold back from God, to manipulate, to rebel and to enter into a “flight” rather than a fight mode. The Lord revealed to me that the wrestle against that which would prevent me from “prevailing with God” is part of the dance that we are in. We are wrestling down the flesh that rebels against God for the sake of allowing surrender to make us one with him. As we are one with him, we become one in prevailing with him. No longer do we battle from a hope for victory but we battle from victory that has already been established.
The wrestle that we DO NOT want to enter into is the wrestle that causes us to walk according to the flesh rather than the Spirit. That posture doesn’t wrestle with God but against God. It tries to wrestle down truth, covenant, love, righteousness and oneness. It could be compared to when a married couple postures themselves against one another and begins to demand their way to the point of breaking the bond of oneness, defiling the covenant and eventually walking away from one another.
Marriage can be compared to a dance in which we have to learn steps that submit to one another, prefer one another, lay down demands and change our ways as needed. Sometimes we step on one another’s toes until we get down the steps so that we can move in unity and oneness. Marriage can feel like a wrestle at times while we learn to surrender to love but when you “fight for prevailing together” it transforms the individuals into one flesh; yet, many prefer flight from the fight for oneness…and just walk away. Just like in marriage, to wrestle (fight) for oneness through a surrendered heart and feet that follow his lead is a fight worthy of entering into. It is the fight against all that is within us that rebels against God and his ways. This will end in a name change! You too will be called, “One who prevailed with God!”
Be careful to not fix your eyes on this world or become overwhelmed by all the chaos in it. When that happens most people enter into one of two postures. One is to become enraged and bitter, causing them to focus their eyes on the world and charge forward in their own zeal and opinions (which is foolishness to God). The other is to completely disengage. For instance to stop praying, worshipping, reading the Word and to comfort themselves with a posture of denial and distancing themselves from both the things happening in the world and from God. Neither posture will allow you to “prevail with God!”
For those who want to walk in their own ways, live in their own opinions and lead their own steps (and who call themselves believers), they will find themselves tripping over God’s feet and wrestling with rebellion.
I normally find writing such an easy form of communication in my life and yet trying to describe these two different wrestles is proving difficult. I only pray that I have communicated it clearly. 2021 can be a dance, but sometimes we will have to wrestle against the temptation to create our own steps or move according to our natural tendencies. We have never been this way before! Especially for those of us in the United States- we have never even dreamed of walking through what we are suddenly facing.
Know this, the dancefloor for this dance that “prevails with God” is in the heavenly realms, not the earthly realm (although it will greatly impact the earthly realms). Our eyes must be fixed on things above and our thoughts must be upon those things that are “praiseworthy.” I want to remind you of one key that He gave me when He asked me to enter this dance, he said, “Keep your eyes fixed on mine and your feet will follow.”
YOU CAN WRESTLE WITH GOD BUT DO NOT WRESTLE AGAINST GOD! The wrestle with him will cause you to prevail with him. The wrestle against him will cause only pain and defeat. Fight for oneness with him!

I had an experience yesterday while resting that came in an unusual and unexpected way. It came as I was watching a very innocent older TV series that had similar scenes as what I am about to share. The Lord came upon me while watching this and it and turned the very scenes that I was watching into a “now encounter” that was deeply significant to his heart.
In this time I watched American Christian couples in their homes grumbling and complaining about what is happening in our nation (obviously, not without cause). Father’s were enraged and mothers were fearful. The atmosphere was one of defeat, fury and despair. In one home the children were in another separate room from their parents and they were sewing an new American flag. As their father shouted in anger they wondered if they should hide the flag that they had planned to raise. The children looked confused and fearful as their father continued cursing their nation. Then, in another home, there was an immigrant family who had come to America for freedom from a communist nation. They understood the great loss that was taking place but rather than cursing they began to bless our nation. This immigrant father began to quote the words of Article 1 of the Bill of Rights (pictured below) and he was leading his family in a song of thanksgiving for a nation that was founded upon these freedoms and rights (freedom of worship, religion, speech and press). As his voice went forth it was heard by households near and far causing repentance to touch the hearts of the fathers. They wept in repentance for complaining and even cursing our nation. Then they began to thank God for the blessings of America. They began to once again bless our beautiful nation and the children’s tears ceased and smiles of joy came upon their faces. A spirit of heaviness was replace by the oil of gladness. Then all of these families gathered together to bless our nation and thank God for the freedoms we have enjoyed (the freedoms that men and women have given their lives to uphold). This posture of thanksgiving and blessing caused a white flag pole to be raised. Then the children brought the new American flag that was then raised upon this flagpole. Together they began to sing, “America the Beautiful.”
America! America! God shed His grace on thee And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea!
After seeing all of this I saw God hold up our Bill of Rights and I could hear him decreeing article one over our nation. I believe that we are to decree and pray for it with him. We are to close the mouths of cursing and open the mouths of thanksgiving and praise. May God shed his grace on our nation and crown us with brotherhood from sea to shining sea! May the flag of freedom be raised by those with childlike faith and joyful hearts. May father’s words turn from cursing to blessing and mother’s hearts move from fear to courage. Lastly, may we protect what many immigrated to our nation to enjoy…FREEDOM!
On this first day of 2021 the word “Ascribe” has been resounding in my mind and my spirit like a bell tolling to announce God’s attributes. To ascribe means to attribute, impute or assign a quality or cause to something or someone.
The 96th Psalm ascribes certain qualities to Yahweh,
“Ascribe to the Lord, you families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to Yahweh the glory of His name; bring an offering and enter His courts. Worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness; tremble before Him, all the earth. Say among the nations: “The Lord reigns. The world is firmly established; it cannot be shaken. He judges the peoples fairly.”” Psalms 96:7-10
As I read these words (declared these words), I could feel the weight of the authority we carry as His Ecclesia to ascribe to the Lord attributes that fill heaven to be made manifest on earth.
Therefore, we ASCRIBE to the Lord glory and strength! We ASCRIBE to Yahweh the glory of His name! We enter His courts with confidence that He alone has established the earth and His attributes will be upheld on earth as it is in heaven.
We ASCRIBE all dominion and sovereignty to Yahweh!
Today, join with me to ascribe righteousness, justice, mercy, truth, wisdom, faithfulness, deliverance and victory to the Lord! We ascribe authorship of all of these attributes to God alone. We come into His courts with thanksgiving and declarations that He will pour out these attributes over all His creation— for the earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it!
“Ascribe to Yahweh, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to Yahweh the glory due His name; worship Yahweh in the splendor of His holiness.” Psalms 29:1-2
Psalm 29 concludes with the words,
“In His temple all cry, “Glory! ” The Lord sat enthroned at the flood; the Lord sits enthroned, King forever. The Lord gives His people strength; the Lord blesses His people with peace.” Psalms 29:9-11
He sits enthroned as King forever! He is enthroned over all the happenings on the earth today. We declare that He is enthroned over 2021 and all the activities on the earth in this time. He is enthroned over our lives. He is enthroned over all as we ascribe to Him all that belongs to Him and that He deserves! All authority, all dominion, all power and all glory are ascribed to Him alone.
Let us rejoice! He rules with righteousness and faithfulness— let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice! Let earth receive her King in 2021!
Partner with us in 2021 and reap a bountiful harvest!
God is raising up those who will partner with our ministry in 2021 in prayer and as financial supporters.We have so many testimonies from our 2020 supporters that tell of God’s faithfulness and miraculous provision and protection throughout that turbulent year. We invite you into being the recipient of a testimony of miracles in 2021 as you partner with us.
“…and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.” Isaiah 61:3
2020 has been very difficult for many. Though God has come as light in the darkness for those who take refuge in him, it does not change the fact that all of the world, those who fear the Lord and those who do not, have been effected by all that has taken place in 2020.
We have all watched dear friends lose loved ones unexpectedly, lose jobs, lose homes, lose businesses…or maybe it is YOU who have lost one or one of these things this year. There is no shame in grieving. Grief does not reflect your faith or your trust in God. It merely says, “I have loved someone that I can no longer share my life with.” or “I labored for something that I believed in and it is no more.” There is grief that comes with losses and God asks us to grieve with those who grieve. And so we do!
Even as we grieve with those who grieve, it is right to put on “garments of praise” (even in the midst of loss or experiencing compassion on those who have lost). We have all lost something, even if it is just our rights and freedom to interact with friends or to enjoy looking into another’s face to see them smile. Though we have been forced to wear a mask on our physical body that reminds us all of this global pandemic, it is time to purposely and intentionally put on a spiritual garment that is called “praise!”
We have an eternal hope that gives us reason for praise in every season and circumstance. I have had seasons in my life of grief where I praised through the tears and it became of garment of peace in the midst of a storm. Praise became my refuge and fortress that took me above what my eyes could see.
Isaiah 61 goes on to say this,
Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs. “For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery and iniquity. In my faithfulness I will reward them and make an everlasting covenant with them. Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the LORD has blessed.”
Today these words from Isaiah 61 rang like a bell of triumph in my spirit. It was like an announcement from angelic hosts calling us to put on garments of praise because the faithfulness of the Lord is our reward and his everlasting covenant will be made known among the nations!
I had a vision of God’s people putting on the garments of praise and as they did, God supernaturally clothed them with heavenly garments of peace and favor that broke off heaviness and despair. This garment of peace was tangible to the point of giving supernatural strength to those who have grown weary. The garment of favor attracted both heaven and earth; bringing forth prosperity that touched every area imaginable.
It is time to let the words that conclude Isaiah 61 pour out of our mouths like a river of praise,
“I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.”
Clothe yourself with garments of praise and watch what happens in the days to come!

Two nights ago I was in that place between deep sleep and coming awake when I either had a dream or a spiritual encounter where I began to hear the words,
“All dominion belongs to Yahweh! All dominion belongs to our God! All dominion belongs to King Jesus.”
As these words were being declared, a crown of dominion was being placed on the head of Jesus (the One with many crowns).
As this happened I saw the “Dominion Voting Machines” that have become so controversial regarding election integrity. I looked at the machine but there were powers and forces that were over it and that were part of massive scheme to overthrow America being a Christian nation. These powers had stolen dominion and authority away from the American people. The machine was like the crown or throne that executed a vast and multi-layered plan to rob the American people of their vote and their will.
But, the Ecclesia rose up and began declaring that ALL DOMINION BELONGS TO THE LORD! As this happened— dominion was removed from the thief and was placed in the hands of God’s people to put as a crown upon the true King…the only King: Jesus.
The word dominion means this:
Definition of dominion 1 : DOMAIN (an area of territory owned or controlled by a ruler or government) 2 law : supreme authority : SOVEREIGNTY having dominion over the natural world 3 dominions plural, Christianity : an order of angels
The law or supreme authority— the sovereignty belongs to Jesus! We give our Lord and King, Jesus Christ, dominion over the natural world just as he has supreme authority and sovereignty over the heavenly realms. The world is the Lord’s and everything in it!
“The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him.” Psalm 24:1
By the authority of Jesus Christ we remove all dominion from those who have devised evil and have exercised unlawful acts and plans against the American people. We break the power that has usurped our constitution, our rights and our voice. We restore ALL dominion and all sovereignty back to the One who reigns in love, faithfulness, righteousness and peace. The Lord who is full of justice and mercy.
Declare these words: Dominion belongs to the Lord of Angel Armies! Dominion belongs to the Lord of Hosts, Dominion belongs to the One true and sovereign God— Yahweh! According to His name, we the people of Yahweh, remove all dominion, rule and power from those who have made themselves enemies of God and we give it back to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob!
“Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans? The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against his anointed one. “Let us break their chains,” they cry, “and free ourselves from slavery to God.” But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them. Then in anger he rebukes them, terrifying them with his fierce fury. For the Lord declares, “I have placed my chosen king on the throne in Jerusalem, on my holy mountain.” The king proclaims the Lord’s decree: “The Lord said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father. Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession. You will break them with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots.’” Now then, you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth! Serve the Lord with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling. Submit to God’s royal son, or he will become angry, and you will be destroyed in the midst of all your activities— for his anger flares up in an instant. But what joy for all who take refuge in him!” Psalms 2:1-12 (I am writing this in December 21 which in many nations is written as 21/12)
I woke up from a dream this morning as the sound of a massive “shot” or “backfire” sounded in my dream. As I woke up I heard the words, “A divine backfire.”
The meaning of backfire is this: A plan or action— rebound adversely on the originator; have the opposite effect to what was intended.
Today, 12/12, is the 40 day mark since the November 3rd election. In the Biblical story of when David faced Goliath the Philistine army had mocked the Israelite army and their God for 40 days. On the 40th day to young David goes out without the armor of a warrior and with merely a stone and sling to face Goliath. It was David’s confidence in the name of Yahweh, that took Goliath down by the mere shot of a stone.
David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.46 This day the LORD will hand you over to me, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. Today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel.” 1 Samuel 17:45-46
The mocking accusations backfired on the Philistines that day!
When I heard in my dream the backfire or shot, I woke up and saw the stone hit the head of Goliath and the sound of the shot as struck his head. Then I heard the words, “The shot heard around the world.” As this spirit that mocks hits the ground it will shake the nations with the fear of the Lord.
Today is a backfire day! Crown Jesus King of Kings!
