What an amazing reality to know that when you wake up each morning that His presence is right there with you. Then, when you lay down at night He remains present— and in every moment throughout each day.
When I was a young believer and newly married I got up one morning to see my young husband prostate on the floor in prayer. I could tell that he was weeping and I was deeply moved by the tenderness in my husband’s heart. When he finally got up from the floor I looking at his tear stained face and said,
“Wow, you must have had a powerful time with Jesus!”
He shocked me because he responded by saying, “No, I wasn’t able to breakthrough into His presence.”
I stood before him utterly confused because I had read the verse from Deuteronomy 31:6-8 that says,
“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
I had only been a believer a short time but I was sure that we didn’t have to “breakthrough into His presence!” Somewhere in my young husband’s sensitive conscience and desire to “be holy” he had come to believe that he had to work to gain access into the presence of God; the enemy was only too happy to convince him that he’d never done enough to arrive (thankfully, God set him free of that lie!).
We may have to “strive to enter into rest”; not because we have to earn it but because we have to train our souls to surrender to trust and peace; but His presence is with us always. He’s not absent, distant, mad or critical— He waits, watches and does not ever waver in His faithfulness to be with us always.
The knowledge that He is always with me and His Spirit (which is Him!) dwells within me changes everything. The God who spoke the entirety of creation into existence is with us always! There is nothing that you will go through or face alone. NOTHING!
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:2
You continually have all that you need because He is with you. Your comforter, deliverer, provider, protector, friend, warrior, counselor, teacher, helper, lover, King and Savior is present with you day and every night. Not because you did anything to earn it but because His death on the cross tore the veil that separated us. It is grace that opened up the way. He paid the full price for His presence to be opened up to us. We can boldly and confidently go before His throne!
I want to say it again…HIS PRESENCE CHANGES EVERYTHING!! He is before you, behind you and beside you. He’s been where you are going and He’s been where you have already gone.
I am continually in awe when I look back on my life at how at every turn He’s prepared the way for me. Of course I’ve faced my share of hard times and even seasons of deep grief, but He was always present to comfort me and make a way through the wilderness. The older I get the more I can look back on my own journey as a living testimony that declares, “He has never left me, nor forsaken me!”
I woke up today with such a tangible awareness of His presence with me and around me. It filled me with such expectation of wondering what He will do next— because everything changes in His presence!
“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11
What amazing and unfathomable thing will He surprise us with today? Yesterday He surprised dear friends of ours with a testimony that left me in such awe! When I heard the testimony of what God did, I wanted to run into the arms of Jesus and embrace Him for being so very good and faithful. His faithfulness toward them overflowed onto me like a flood of joy.
He is with you and in His presence is joy (Ps. 16:11) , peace and rest (Ex. 33:14), refreshing (Acts 3:20-21), help (John14:26), wisdom and instruction (Ps. 25:5-9), mercy and grace (Heb. 4:16), salvation (Zep. 3:17), justice (Ps. 37:5-6), fruitfulness (Jer. 17:7-8)…and so much more!
Release His presence into all that is around you…and watch as it changes everything.

Each Friday I write a prayer and declaration for a ministry organization that we are a part of. Today, as I wrote the declaration, I felt to share it with you as well.
God is dealing with the opposition and resistance that has come against His people. He is giving you a “spirit of overcoming” as you stand firm in His Word as absolute truth. Put all doubt, fear and unbelief under your feet and declare the words below. Break the cycles of wavering between two opinions according to circumstances and stand firm and unwavering upon His truth and promises. Often the open doors that allows the “thief” to in come is a door of doubt. God is a god of abundance and we are being asked to close and lock the doors of doubt and wavering about His goodness.
Here is the prayer and declaration for you. Declare it everyday until you have overcome and until it repairs the gaps in wall around your life. It’s time to fortify the walls of truth that guard you.
Prayer and Declaration
“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8
“ I prophesy out of 2 Corinthians 9:8, declaring that God’s abundant blessings will manifest upon me and my family. I say with confident assurance that me, my family and my household will have all that we need at all times. We will lack no good thing and the work of the Kingdom will not be hindered or thwarted by the opposition that comes in the form of lack.
The Spirit is speak saying that He will prosper my “Yes!” I say yes to Him once again and I say “Yes and amen” to His promise to prosper my “yes.”
I break all agreements with thoughts, expectation and fears of lack, doubt and poverty. I enter into the confident faith and assurance that God will abundantly bless me and my household with all that we need in each season so that we abound in every good work.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6
I come to you Father right now, in both prayer and petition, bringing my requests for financial provision and supernatural resources, so that we all abound in every good work. I thank you that the promised provision of abundant blessings in all that I need is being made manifest even now. I also bring my prayers and petitions on behalf of every Kingdom work being done in the body of Christ before you. Thank you that the work will prosper and abound; lacking nothing but prospering in response to every yes! You are good and forever faithful to keep your promise and to bless the work of our hands. Thank you Father for your Son, for making us heirs of salvation and for being our help in times of trouble. -Amen-
Now go forth in praise and thanksgiving, knowing that He is the God of more than enough. You will overcome the cycles of wavering, doubt and lack. You will walk and live in the abundant life promised to you in John 10:10!

Last night a group of seven of us went to a very oppressed area of downtown Portland to do a prayer-walk (we’ve been prayer walking this area for the past six months). Though we had a very effectual night with amazing breakthrough, what our eyes had to look upon could grieve even the hardest heart. There were so many lives snared in the net of demonic oppression and addiction. Yet, as we stood on a particularly dark corner one of our team members said that the song, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, was running through his mind the whole night but the word “turn” was changed to “fix.” We all stood in the midst of the darkness (even people screaming at us) and began to sing,
Fix your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace…
As we sang, prayed and declared we watched as the things of earth grew dim. We fixed our gaze on the beauty of Jesus and the darkness was dispelled in the midst of His light. From that point on we had miraculous breakthroughs that we had been praying for over many months.
I share this testimony with you because the change and freedom came when we “fixed our gaze upon Jesus” in the midst of darkness.
“I have asked one thing from the Lord; it is what I desire: to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, gazing on the beauty of the Lord and seeking [Him] in His temple.” Psalm 27:4
As we fixed our gaze upon His beauty the darkness around us began to tremble. There were physical and natural happenings that we witnessed in response to the light and beauty being brought into the midst of darkness and depravity. We honestly stood in awe at what we witnessed last night because it was supernatural.
Though we shouldn’t have been surprised, honestly we were greatly shocked and surprised at the turn of events. I should know this truth well because in my personal life I strive to continually “fix my gaze” on Jesus and His beauty day and night. The sight of Him and “dwelling in His temple” has become my refuge and my fortress.
When trials or storms come, fixing my gaze upon Him becomes the place where my perspective is aligned with truth and victory. Fixing my eyes upon His beauty lifts me out of the circumstance that seek to “steal my gaze.” It lifts me from the captivity of fear into the freedom of the finished work of Christ.
If you are going through a storm and all you can see is the wind and waves, then now is the time to turn your eyes upon Jesus and fix your gaze upon His beauty. It will not only lift you above the storm but it will also calm the storm.
Often we empower storms or assignments sent against us when we fix our focus on them. The enemy seeks to steal our gaze and our light through darkness and fear. When this happens, we actually become a force that strengthens the storm rather than calms the storm. As you refocus your gaze upon Jesus it releases His power to calm the storm and moves you into freedom.
“For all creation, gazing eagerly as if with outstretched neck, is waiting and longing to see the manifestation of the sons of God.” Romans 8:19
As we fixed our gaze on Jesus last night we saw creation respond. Creation was waiting for the sons and daughters of God to arrive on the scene in a place where darkness was given dominion. Though there is still much work to do, we found that as we fixed our gaze upon His beauty and released what we saw, the mountains trembled and demons began to flee. Light dispels darkness, beauty transforms depravity, love overcomes hate! This works in our personal lives as well as in our cities and nations.
If you need freedom from oppression and circumstances that have left you captive; turn your gaze! Refocus your attention and your eyes upon His beauty and watch as peace comes upon you and the storm is stilled. Your perspective will change but circumstances will shift as well.
Fix your gaze and watch freedom come!

“My soul yearns for you in the night, and in the morning my spirit searches and looks out for you” Isaiah 26:9
Are you facing a darkness that has left you without sight or light? Throughout my life I have often found that right before the dawn breaks through, the darkness will appear as though it will swallow me alive. I have also learned through those dark moments to stand on the truth that I know rather than on what I see (or in those moments…what I can’t see!).
We often throw around these little quotes such as, “It’s always darkest before the dawn.” or “The end is merely signaling your new beginning.” after we’ve come through the darkness. But if you are standing in the midst of the darkest hour, I’d like to encourage you to make that place a holy place. Allow the yearning of your soul in the dark night to become the sound of surrender. Cry out to the One who is the Light of the World and in the midst of the darkness declare that you have been given a great light.
Rather than let the darkness swallow you, let the light of Christ swallow the darkness. The times in life that leave you standing in the dark can become the most holy moments as you learn to declare His faithfulness and goodness in the face of opposing circumstances. As you declare the truth of who He is and offer the worship that He is due, the darkness suddenly becomes swallowed up in victory.
“Death is swallowed up in victory.” “
O death, where is your victory? O death where is your sting?”” 1 Corinthians 15:55
What if you replace the word death with darkness? Surely darkness is swallowed up in victory when we declare His glorious goodness and light.
Some of my greatest victories have been won in my darkest hours. As I learned to allow His light to shine forth in the darkness, I was given victory over the power of darkness that was seeking to swallow me up. It is time to gain victory over the power that darkness has had over you!
“I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.” Psalm 40:1-3
The dawn will come and it will illuminate the testimony of Jesus that was forged in the darkness! Just like in Daniel 3 when Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego walked in the fire and came forth victorious; so will you!
Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out from the fire. And the satraps, the prefects, the governors, and the king’s counselors gathered together and saw that the fire had not had any power over the bodies of those men. The hair of their heads was not singed, their cloaks were not harmed, and no smell of fire had come upon them. Daniel 3:26-27
The power of darkness will not have consumed you, singed you nor harmed you because you know that the Light of the World is standing there with you. Just like the smell of fire was not found upon these three who walked in the flames, neither will despair, depression or hopelessness come upon you as you recognize that you are not alone in the darkness…for there is another standing with you and there is NO darkness in Him!
Now is the time to raise your hallelujah! Yes, right in the midst of the darkness and in the presence of your enemy. That is when you raise your voice and sing a little louder until you see the darkness flee. The power of the cross will swallow up the power of darkness!
The dawn of victory is about to rise. Let the light of the new day reveal the testimony of Jesus that is being formed in the darkness, while no one is looking. Let darkness hear the sound of your victory song and see the dance of the overcomer. Darkness can not withstand the light…so let your light shine.
This just might be your finest hour!

Some of you have been going through a time of deep pain, deep longing and what you’d describe as a wilderness time. Many years ago I went through such a time and during those few years I honestly wondered if I’d survive the pain and darkness that surrounded my soul.
During that time I was often awake in the middle of the night trying to find my way through the unrelenting pain. One night, in the midst of the thick wilderness, I began to hear the words from the Book of Hosea flowing through my heart like a stream of hope upon my dry and thirsty soul. The words are from Hosea 2:14-23,
““Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her. There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she will respond as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt. “In that day,” declares the Lord, “you will call me ‘my husband’; you will no longer call me ‘my master. ’ I will remove the names of the Baals from her lips; no longer will their names be invoked. In that day I will make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky and the creatures that move along the ground. Bow and sword and battle I will abolish from the land, so that all may lie down in safety. I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord. “In that day I will respond,” declares the Lord — “I will respond to the skies, and they will respond to the earth; and the earth will respond to the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, and they will respond to Jezreel. I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one. ’ I will say to those called ‘Not my people, ’ ‘You are my people’; and they will say, ‘You are my God.’ ””
These verses became my lifeline! They gave me purpose in the pain and points for prayer. God hadn’t taken me into the wilderness to ruin me but rather to restore me! In His incredible mercy, He drew me into a place that was set apart because He loved me too much to leave me content with less than the fullness of what He intended for my life.
There, in the wilderness, I became aware of all the “masters of my soul” and I became keenly aware of the captivity that the busyness of my life had hidden in the locked closets of my soul. I was laid bare and in the midst of naked vulnerability He covered me with His love, He healed my wounds, dressed me in His righteousness and He betrothed me to Him; changing my identity to, “I am my Beloved’s and He is mine.” (Songs of Solomon 6:3)
Though it was the most painful time of my life; it was the most important time in my life. I am forever grateful that He “allured me into the wilderness to speak tenderly to me and to restore me.” During that three year wilderness my life was saved and everything changed. I was set free to truly live, truly be loved and truly breathe in the beauty of salvation.
The wilderness is not without purpose! Rarely is it only a moment but rather a journey. My wilderness changed when I began to understand that there was a divine purpose in it. Prior to that it was merely agonizing pain that was leaving me stuck. As soon as I found the purpose through the verses in Hosea, I began to partner with God to walk into freedom upon the path He had forged for me.
Your wilderness is not without purpose. Winter is for only for a season but you must go through that season to get to the springtime. If you are in a wilderness season; you are not in the wilderness alone. God is with you there. You are surrounded by angelic hosts that have been assigned to you— to minister to you. Holy Spirit is with you to reveal the purpose and the path to you. It’s not a place to build homes or remain but a place to journey “through.”
It is a place of redemption! It is a place where you are set free and a place where you are betrothed. My life truly began in the wilderness when I discovered He was there with me. From that point onward I moved forward and left behind the masters I had served and the chains that had held me captive. Some call it, “the dark night of the soul” but I call it the “door of hope.” My valley of weeping became the threshold of true joy and freedom.
When I emerged from this season into my springtime my husband gave me a gift. It was the verses from Songs of Solomon 2:10-13 engraved on slate. They read,
“My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me. See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.””
Don’t stop moving forward because the purpose of your wilderness is redemption! The winter will pass and flowers will appear. The sound of the dove’s song will be heard once again. You will bear fruit once again and intimacy will surround you like the fragrance of a garden in full bloom.
You are in a doorway of hope. Though weeping lasts a night…joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5).

Today I once again saw a vision of people giving their “YES” to the Lord. For many, their “Yes” came out of their own need; such as the widow did when she gave her last coins in Luke 21. Though they had little to offer, they added their “Yes” to follow Him and to give their all.
“And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.” Luke 21:1-4
In this vision I saw the Lord receive their “Yes” as if it were a coin or a “widow’s mite” offering. As it was received by the Lord, it was multiplied and prospered. It began to rain coins of provision upon the one who had said, “Yes!” All that they needed to follow Him, to be sent out and to obey His voice was released in response to their “yes offering.”
For a number of weeks now I keep hearing the words, “It is the time of the widow’s mite offering.” Each time that I hear it I see the words, “Change for change.” I sense that this is the heart that the Lord is searching for. He is looking for the ones who give their all. This is a pleasing sacrifice that will bring about a shift or change even in your natural resources.
It is the posture that declares, “He is worthy of it all!” It also declares that we trust in the Lord with all of our hearts. I don’t know what this looks like for each one of you but the Lord does. Ask Him.
There is a “Yes offering” that is being given in this hour that is breaking the ceiling that has held you down. It is releasing a prosperity that makes a way for your yes to be resourced. It will take you into all the world so that many more will give their yes.
Your “yes” is sending you out!You will be ambassadors of light and truth into a world of darkness and deception. Your yes is resounding through the atmosphere and reaching the heart of God. It is the future and hope that He has for you and for all who will be transformed by the light and truth that you are carrying.
“Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth. “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. 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 17:18-21
We give our “YES” to you, Lord.

I have had a very busy travel schedule this season and as I have been in many different places I have taken notice that a theme resounds every place that I go; it is the sound of sons and daughters giving their, “Yes” to the Lord.
This is not a subtle sound but a thundering sound of fully yielded hearts and surrendered lives. It is released in their prayers, their worship and their declarations like a thunderclap that echos through the atmosphere.
During the past few weeks I have had numerous visions and revelations regarding this sound and I’d like to share two of them with you.
In one, I saw the “Yes” being released from the individual voices and corporate gatherings going before the Lord. Their “Yes” was being funded by heavenly resources. As it was released on earth it was being touched with prosperity. Angels were bringing everything needed for their “Yes” to be accomplished. It was a heavenly partnership being fully funded by supernatural resources.
Next, I was taken into an encounter where I found myself at Calvary where Jesus was being nailed to the cross. I was completely overcome by the weight and magnitude of the weight of His surrender to such agony. Then, I heard the pounding of the nails as they pierced His hands and feet. He cried out in such excruciating pain but what I heard was “the yes of Jesus!” It was His yes to dying so that we might live. It resounded through the atmosphere of time like a great thunderclap. Each pound of the nails and cry of pain was like another thunderclap. Then I was taken back to the worship service that I was in where surrendered sons and daughters were shouting out their “Yes”; to die to self and live fully for Christ. Suddenly, the yes of Jesus 2000 years ago and the yes of His children now were being intermingled as one resounding YES! As it intermingled it went forth like a sonic boom! I saw it resound through the atmosphere worldwide. The sound waves went out like a “sound tsunami” that was building in strength and power. As it went forth I saw it spark revival everywhere it touched. I literally heard the “Yes” of new believers throughout the world that equaled “billions!” Not millions but billions of souls shouting their yes to Christ!
This is the hour of the YES! The years prior have prepared a people that would yield and surrender all for the sake of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His worth. The YES has begun already but I believe that it will hit a “critical mass” in 2020 creating this sonic boom that sends forth sound energy and waves of His glorious love and power.
The definition of a sonic boom is the sound associated with the shock waves created whenever an object travelling through the air travels faster than the speed of sound. Sonic booms generate enormous amounts of sound energy, sounding similar to an explosion or a thunderclap to the human ear. This is why I heard the sound of “Yes” in both encounters come as a thunderclap. This intermingled “yes” that merges the yes of Jesus when He died so that we might live and the yes of His sons and daughters to die to self so that He might live through them will break the sound barrier. It will release the sound that breaks down demonic barriers that have prevented ears from hearing the sound of His love and salvation.
Your yes is needed. Heaven is prospering your yes with supernatural resources and it is being intermingled with the sound of Jesus’ yes when He surrendered to the cross. It is the trip wire that will spark revival! It is the sound that breaks the barriers and releases a tsunami sound wave of revival that will harvest billions of souls.
Just say YES!

I returned last night from a trip where we helped facilitate a thirty-hour worship an prayer burn. During these thirty hours there was a “transition” every two hours where the musicians and prayer leaders would change. The beautiful flow that had been carried and unbroken for the previous two hours would reach a segue moment, where as smoothly as possible a new group of musicians and prayer leaders would take their place. Then a new sound and “flavor” would begin taking us into new realms of beauty.
As I woke up this morning in a personal transition from one event in Florida, back to a few days at home, and then onto another event this weekend, I heard the Lord speak to me about these transition moments or “segue” moments in our lives.
First, we need to understand that a segue is defined as a “smooth transition.” We experience segues in worship sets when skilled musicians can transition from one song to another, possibly in a different key. There is an art and skill to make that transition smooth rather than abrupt so the flow is not disrupted. There are segues in conversations that cause a change of subject to flow smoothly rather than being confusing and disruptive. The listener may be completely unaware that a transition has occurred; the flow was not broken because of a skilled segue. Learning to navigate life’s transitions or segues is just as important.
Today the Lord spoke to me saying that many of His people are about to be—or are already in—transition moments. He said that if you will allow His Spirit to navigate you through them He will cause it to be a “segue” (smooth transition) rather than an abrupt interruption. When the old (what you were previously doing) abruptly and suddenly stops, it can interrupt the flow and be jarring emotionally and spiritually and cause disruption to those around you. But God desires to give you a segue rather than an interruption.
A segue is still a transition from one thing to a different thing, but the difference is that it is smooth and does not stop the flow. The Spirit of the Lord is so skilled at creating segues in our lives. When He navigates these times they do not bring trauma or disrupt flow. They become a beautiful corridor that ushers you smoothly from one place to another. The place of transition can be beautiful when Holy Spirit is in it.
I think by nature many of us live for the “peak” moments where experiences and events crescendo isn’t breakthrough, but there can also be such beauty, peace, and joy found in the transition times. When you invite the Spirit of the Lord to turn your transition into an anointed segue then the people around you will hardly notice that a change has occurred, because it happened so naturally and peacefully. You will flow smoothly into your new season without disruption, disturbance, and stress.
I have been through many transition moments in my life and ministry. In the early years they were rough! I tried to navigate them with my understanding and found myself stressed and overwhelmed by the process. By the time the transition was completed, I was depleted! But throughout the years I have discovered that as I yield to the Spirit that a beautiful and peaceful segue from one season to another is created for me. But it truly takes an unbroken flow of surrender and of remaining “in the Spirit” to embrace and encounter them.
If you are sensing that one season of your life is coming to a close and another is about to begin, ask the Lord to give you an anointed, Spirit-led segue. This will assure that peace and joy remain in the transition.
On a side note: in my experience, when we don’t yield to seeing a smooth transition it not only creates a break in the flow for you personally but it is disruptive to those around you. What does not occur naturally and smoothly will feel “unnatural and harsh.” This will often create an atmosphere where people become offended, confused, and disheartened and “breaks” occur. We do not want our transitions to cause a break but to usher everyone into the new with unbroken beauty.
It is time for spiritual segues to occur in place of rough and intrusive breaks. “Spirit come! Come and usher us through spiritual segues that flow naturally and are hardly noticed. Thank you that You are the God of the crescendos and the God of the segues. We yield to the sound and the movements of the way transitions are supposed to be experienced.” Amen

There is a sound that is swelling in the atmosphere that will ignite revival throughout the world— it is the sound of the “laid down lovers” intermingled with the sound of the One who laid His life down.
I was taken into an encounter where I found myself before our precious Jesus as His hands were being nailed to the cross. With each pound of the hammer He let out a great cry. Yet in this encounter His cry was heard in my spirit as, “Yes! I lay Myself down!” Each cry was His yes given to save us— the “Yes” of One who is purchasing back His Bride.
Then I was taken to crowds of believers who were giving their “Yes” to lay down their lives for the sake of Christ. Their “Yes” was an unconditional and fully abandoned “Yes!” Then, suddenly the “Yes” of Christ from 2000 years ago, as He was being nailed to the cross, and the “Yes” of His sons and daughters today went forth as one sound. The echo of His yes and our yes intermingled into a sound of revival. I saw billions (not millions but billions) come to Christ in response to this sound!
An explosion of the sound of “Yes” is the trip wire that will signal revival…worldwide revival. No man, no law and nothing will be able to stop the sound. Old and young will run to hear the sound, to encounter the Man and to add their “Yes!” The “critical mass” required to for a chain reaction of salvation and purification is about to occur!
Do you feel and hear the swell of this sound? Release your “YES!” It is the unconditional yes that holds nothing back but rather it lays down all for the sake of the One who laid down His all. It is the yes of those who are completely dependent and surrendered. It is the yes that declares, “He is worthy of it all!”
