Shoot the Arrow and Strike the Ground

by Kathi Pelton

There have been a number of themes that I have been hearing in my spirit this month. One of them is, “Strike the ground!”

In 2 Kings 13, Johoash, King of Israel, was told by Elisha to shoot an arrow from his bow out the east window and when he did Elisha called it the “Arrow of the Lord’s victory.” Then he asked the king to take more arrows and strike the ground. The king struck the ground only three times and therefore only received three victories over Aram. Elisha then says, “If you had struck five or six times; you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will only defeat it three times.”

I find it interesting that the “Arrow of the Lord’s Victory” goes forth through the air first…making a way for a complete victory. The king is then asked to strike the ground with more arrows but he falls short of completion. I believe that just like in this story, the Lord goes before us and creates (opens) a victory in the spirit realm (the air…the unseen) but then we (His kings and priests/sons and daughters) must partner with the victory that He sent forth by striking the ground here on earth. Our strikes must match what is needed to completely destroy the enemy. Yet, so often we stop short and though we have victories we do not see the complete destruction of the plans of the enemy.

We have seen that on many fronts; from moves of God that displace the enemy and establish the Kingdom of God through His Ecclesia to the issues in the land such as abortion and identity. I believe that the arrow of the Lord’s victory has once again been shot and that the prophets are asking the Church once again to pick up the arrows and strike the ground. Not once, twice or even three times but the full amount needed to completely destroy the enemy and the sin that had come upon the land. Our nation (and many nations) have done evil in the sight of the Lord and God is calling for repentance (turning away from sin). Even the church has been found with sin and stain that has stopped us from receiving the full victory.

This time can be different! A remnant is arising that is repenting and striking the ground until the enemy and the “evil done in the sight of God” is completely destroyed. We have come to the end of an era where the church fell short; causing divisions, offenses, and allowing the enemy to advance. But we are beginning the ground strike by striking the ground of the the places in our hearts and lives that have been occupied by the enemy. We are simultaneously striking the ground of the land with repentance, prayer, the blood of Jesus, declarations of His Word and worship.

The Accuser is presenting “evidence of wickedness” before God regarding the lives of the His people but because there is great repentance happening now (in this hour), I hear the Lord saying, “INADMISSIBLE!” The evidences of sin have been covered in the blood of Jesus and can no longer be brought forth. Authority is being restored to the innocent…His Ecclesia!

There is personal and corporate repentance taking place now that is changing everything. It is putting the church in the offensive position rather than the defensive posture. The evidence against the enemy is admissible and God is judging the evil that he has done.

This is what repentance looks like. It is like being held in a prison cell and repentance is the key that opens the door to set us free. Repentance is freedom! It is the release from the captivity of the enemy! It is such a great gift!

We are marching forth in March. Marching out of prisons that have held many captive for years. Even “life sentences” are being reversed! God’s arrow of victory has been shot and now we must strike the ground and not stop short. We strike the ground for the evil that has been done in the sight of God in our personal lives, in the church and in the land. We will strike the ground for unborn in the womb and the unborn in the spirit. It’s time to birth sons and daughters! It’s time for a move of God that has no end!

The arrow of the Lord’s victory has gone forth and now is the time to strike the ground that brings forth change!

It is Time to See, Hear and Speak Again!

by Kathi Pelton

Recently I was on a conference call with a dear friend in Japan. During this call she began to share the unknown origins of the “See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” monkeys that we all are so familiar with. Their origin was from ancient Japan when Christianity was considered “evil.” The three moneys with their hands over their eyes, mouths, and ears represented spirits that stopped the people from seeing, hearing, or speaking the truth of salvation through Jesus. These monkeys are seen at shrines in Japan and are called “The Wise Monkeys.”

While I cannot prove or disprove that this is the original meaning of “The Three Wise Monkeys” at this time but when I heard this something in my spirit realized that there are demonic spirits sent to blind people from the true revelation of Jesus Christ, determined to silence the voices that bring good news and truth, and to deafen ears from hearing the gospel.

If there is one place on earth that we see this played out it is in the nation of Japan where less than one percent of the population are Christian. These are powerful spirits that come to cover eyes, mouths, and ears.

God is exposing these spirits and binding their hands behind their backs. They have kept people in deception and have also been a spirit that has come to blind, silence, and deafen even the believers. They keep us from understanding the wisdom of the true God and bound to the “wisdom of the world,” which is foolishness to God.

It is time for us to stand up and take authority over these spirits that have been hidden from our sight and yet kept many bound and captive.

These spirits seek after our children to keep them blind, mute, and deaf to the light and truth. They resist the sight and sound of the good news.

It is time to pray and demand that all influence from these spirits be removed from your life, your children, and your city. They are not “three wise monkeys” but three spirits that bring foolishness, deception, and darkness.

I feel the roar of God regarding these spirits over lives, people groups, and nations. I feel His roar over Japan! There is a breakthrough for Japan coming that will overcome these blind, mute, and deaf spirits of idolatry that will open eyes, ears, and mouths to confess Jesus as Lord! But this is not only for Japan, for It will come off of the prodigals and will release a wave of salvation worldwide that is unprecedented.

I declare, “See, speak, and hear what the Lord is saying!” I stand with you and by the authority of Jesus Christ loose the hands that have covered your eyes, your mouth, and your ears. You will see the salvation of the Lord, you will speak the word of the Lord and you will hear the wisdom of God.

I Heard The Lion of Judah Roar “REDEMPTION!” Over Your Life!

Kathi Pelton

God gives me a lot of dreams during the night that are revelations into what He is doing or about to do. Last night I had a dream that I initially woke up from and thought, “What was that?!”

At first I just put it aside as a weird dream but as I went to spend time with the Lord this dream came back to me and it became clear that the Lord was showing me something. I hesitated sharing it because it was visually disturbing but God was purposeful in His choice of descriptive pictures therefore I will share it with you as He shared it with me.

In the dream I was taken into a room with a toilet in it. As I stepped into the room this toilet began to back up with solid sewage that I knew was coming from within its tank (not the sewage lines or pipes). It was years worth of waste and this old waste filled the bowl; yet didn’t spill onto the ground (it was contained). I was aware that the tank where it was wrongly being stored was now empty of the waste of old and it could be flushed away. Now it could work properly and give a continual flow of clean water. Waste would go to the proper place. (End of dream)

When I began to spend time with the Lord He revealed to me through this dream that we are now in a sovereign time where trauma, pain, regrets, disappointments, betrayal and wounds of the soul that have remained stored in our souls (our soul tanks) from past events will suddenly be released. As they come to the surface they will not spill out on the floor and negatively affect our lives, homes, relationships and surroundings but they will be contained and washed away from the soul “as far as the east is from the west.” No longer will your soul be a tank filled with wounds or wasted places from the past but it will work for your benefit.

The Lord says, ‘I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and the cutting locusts. It was I who sent this great destroying army against you. Once again you will have all the food you want, and you will praise the Lord your God, who does these miracles for you. Never again will my people be disgraced. Then you will know that I am among my people Israel, that I am the Lord your God, and there is no other. Never again will my people be disgraced.’”Joel‬ ‭2:25-27‬ ‭

This is restoration time! It is vindication time and it is time for the wasted years to be restored. I hear Him saying over you,

“No more shame, no more disgrace, no more lack, no more waste!”

The miracles of deliverance are now coming upon you. There is a flushing out of the carcasses of old and the plagues that have swarmed you. God is about to make His name known among all who look upon your life and you will give Him all of the praise for the wonderful work He will do.

“God, your God, will restore everything you lost; he’ll have compassion on you; he’ll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered. No matter how far away you end up, God, your God, will get you out of there and bring you back to the land your ancestors once possessed. It will be yours again. He will give you a good life and make you more numerous than your ancestors. God, your God, will cut away the thick calluses on your heart and your children’s hearts, freeing you to love God, your God, with your whole heart and soul and live, really live.” Deuteronomy 30:3-13

These are His words to you today! The old, wasted places are being washed away and His new and miraculous deliverance is now upon you. He is Restorer, Redeemer and Deliverer. The Lion of Judah is coming upon the land of your life and roaring a command of restoration! The roar literally sounds like the word, “RESTORATION!”

Roar with Him and call forth the restorative work in your life. Agree with His word and echo His roar.

Now is the time!

The Great Power Released Through Praise. Sing Out, “Great Are You Lord!”

by Kathi Pelton

Rare is the time that I am not filled with great courage when I am exalting the Lord! Singing His name and declaring His nature releases an infusion of confident assurance and fearlessness as I am intimately connected to who He is. Worship will lift me from the earthly realm, with all that weighs me down, to the heavenly place that I was created for.

“For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:6

We are seated in heavenly places, united with Christ! The greatness of the Lord is united to us and dwells within us. The God who created the heavens and the earth, who put the stars in the sky and keeps all of the universe working together is united to us. Worship ushers us into that reality and experience. His power and goodness never leaves us or forsakes us but worship causes our souls to join with heavenly truth and from there we declare, “Great are you Lord!”

I think that we often forget the unfathomable and surpassing greatness of our God throughout the hours of the day as we get busy with the mundane tasks. We go out into the world more aware of our weakness then we are of His greatness. There is not a single day, let alone a single second that we are not united to the One who sits upon the throne of grace. All power, all honor, all majesty and all that is in heaven and earth belongs to Him.

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth…”Matthew 28:18

Yet, this God who holds all creation in His hands and whom all authority belongs to also cares about every detail of our lives. It is beyond comprehension to imagine this truth. How can His love span such vast horizons and still reach down to personally connect with every detail of our individual lives? It leaves me undone to realize that He values me so greatly. It causes me to release the words, “Great are you Lord!” Trying to understand this kind of love is beyond what our greatest moments of imagination can fathom. Our understanding of human love cannot touch this kind of agape love.

How is it that we are intimately united to this King of Glory? Why do we still tremble at the storms of life? How can it be that we still doubt or question if He sees us or knows our needs? This God who holds all things together also holds our lives His hands. I stand in awe in the face of such love and kindness.

Not only does He have authority over all but through this uniting with Him we too have authority. We have His Spirit living in us! This is the very power that raised Jesus from the dead and we are united to the power of His Spirit as well.

That is why we shout, “Great are you, Lord!”. That is why can be brave, courageous and strong…it is because we have been united to Him!

Going Deeper

by Kathi Pelton

There is an insatiable thirst that is present in the lives of God’s people that causes them to run after Him with a desperate abandonment. It is like a man on a desert road in the scorching sun who begins to thirst. He will go to any lengths to get a drink and when he finally does he will drink deeply. Thirst is a gift because it causes us to search for Him like a man in search of water. There are times that seem as if the drink that we so desperately desire evades our reach. But it is in those times that room is made in the depths of our souls for drinking deep.

In Luke 5 we find Simon frustrated from a long night of fishing with no results. He is tired, empty handed and though it does not say he was desperate, one can imagine the desperation he felt after having no results or pay off for all of his work. In verse 4 the Lord addresses Simon saying,

“Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch.”

Desperation causes us to do what we wouldn’t do if we had been given what we had wanted in our first attempt. Simon responded to the Lord’s request and went out once again. He threw his nets into the deep waters and found more than he could ask or imagine when he pulled in his nets.

There have been many times in my life when I feel as though I have worked through a long night season only to come up short and it is in those times that the Lord speak similar words to me,

“Daughter, go deeper. Throw yourselves into the depths of My love and watch what you draw in.”

Then, like Simon, who fell on his knees before the Lord, I find myself in a new awareness of how great His love is toward me and I fall on my knees before Him once again. When I once again drink deep of His love I begin to experience the manifestation of Psalm 42:7,

“Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls; All Your breakers and Your waves have rolled over me.”

Once again my heart finds courage and I am given a renewed boldness to run after Him knowing that with every step I am drawn into greater depths. I cry out the words from Romans 11:33 that say,

“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!”

Hunger and thirst is a gift. Desperation and pain is a gift. Longing and waiting is a gift. Even hope deferred can be a gift because it is there that we are invited into the deep places and can experience the unsearchable and unfathomable ways of His love. Desire fulfilled is far more beautiful to the desperately thirsty soul than it is to the satisfied soul. He is calling you deeper…and deeper still. Let Him draw you into the deep waters where you will find a love beyond comprehension.

The Lord Has Spoken. It Is Vindication Time!

Kathi Pelton

I heard the Lord announce today,

“It’s vindication time!”

The enemy has been served notice and though he is scrambling to hold his ground, he will not prevail! The Lord has spoken!

This vindication will transcend what we see; it refutes the evidence before us that currently points to defeat. God will overturn the tables of evil and vindicate personal lives, as well as national issues. Those who have walked in integrity and not turned from truth will now see vindication come.

I was recently sitting with a couple who had prayed for vindication regarding areas of their lives that the enemy had ravaged, and I kept hearing the Lord say, “I have taken up their cause and I will vindicate them!” These words have come back to me today and are going out to you.

You have cried out like the Psalmist,

“Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity, And I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.” Psalm 26:1

And soon you will shout out like Jeremiah,

“The LORD has brought about our vindication; Come and let us recount in Zion the work of the LORD our God!” Jeremiah 51:10

This vindication will spread over nations and over people groups because the remnant of God’s people have humbled themselves before the Lord. They have prayed and put their trust in the Lord alone. Now, as in the days of King Hezekiah, we will see God rescue us and the kingdoms of the earth will see that He alone is God!

“Now, O Lord our God, rescue us from his power; then all the kingdoms of the earth will know that you alone, O Lord, are God.” 2 Kings‬ ‭19:19‬ ‭

God will vindicate those whom He has place in positions of authority for such a time as this. He will vindicate the unborn, He will vindicate the fatherless, He will vindicate those who have been falsely accused, and He will vindicate those who have been afflicted and oppressed!

Declare His vindication over your life. Thank Him even now for His full vindication because He has spoken, therefore it is so! Rejoice even now for His gavel has come down and declared your recompense.

Those who have been barren—you will be as Rachel and be found fruitful!

“Then Rachel said, ‘God has vindicated me, and has indeed heard my voice and has given me a son.’ Therefore she named him Dan.” Genesis 30:6

The Hebrew meaning of Dan is “his judgement.” God is rendering His verdict on your behalf and is vindicating you!

Watch in 2019–and beyond—what God does throughout the nations! Watch Japan, watch the United States, watch Egypt, watch Brazil, and watch some of the most oppressive places suddenly turn because a remnant has prayed and trusted in God alone!

This vindication will shift financial structures and cause “dirty money” to turn into pure gold as it is placed in the hands of the righteous. Debts will be paid off and a time of jubilee will occur. Shifts will take place that dispossess strongholds held by the enemy and suddenly the Lord’s Kingdom will come and be established in the most unlikely places. Then, even the media will call it a miracle!

It’s time to dance because it has been announced! This is not a time of “wait and see” but it is a time of rejoicing in our King, for He has spoken!

“Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication; And let them say continually, “’The LORD be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant.’” Psalm 35:27

The Enemy That You Are Facing Will Be Defeated!

Kathi Pelton

Last night I went into prayer with so many things on my mind; our nation, our children, our hearts…I only knew that God wanted to bring His word and His perspective.

As I waited upon Him I was led to read 2 Kings 18 and 19. These chapters recount the time when King Hezekiah is being mocked and taunted by the Assyrian king who has captured every fortified city in Judah. He mocks King Hezekiah before the people of Jerusalem saying,

“This is what the king says: Do not let Hezekiah deceive you. He cannot deliver you from my hand. Do not let Hezekiah persuade you to trust in the Lord when he says, ‘The Lord will surely deliver us; this city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.’” 2 Kings‬ ‭18:29-30‬ ‭

Yet, as we know, Hezekiah goes before the Lord and prays these words,

““It is true, Lord, that the Assyrian kings have laid waste these nations and their lands. They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by human hands. Now, Lord our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you alone, Lord, are God.”” 2 Kings‬ ‭19:17-19‬ ‭

The lands that had been captured had put their trust in false gods fashioned by men. But Hezekiah trusted in the One True God who delivered him just as He had promised.

Last night as I went before the Lord to pray for all that I was carrying in my heart (my nation, the unborn, my children, the Church, etc.), Hezekiah’s words from 2 Kings 19:19 poured forth,

“Now, Lord our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you alone, Lord, are God.”” 2 Kings‬ ‭19:19‬ ‭‬‬

We are facing many enemies and the enemy mocks our trust in God; taunting the words that we have heard through the prophets and in the secret place. But our trust is not in man-made gods or the ways of the world…it is in the Lord of All.

I hear Him saying these words,

“Just as in the days of Hezekiah, I will keep My word. I will defeat the enemy who has shouted lies and planted fear into the hearts of men. Continue to trust in Me and watch as I defeat your great enemies.”

This is a time of facing giants and of seeing victories as we put our trust in the Lord. This past November the Spirit of the Lord kept saying to me, “Things are not as they appear.” Though the enemy makes his threats, mocks your faith and plants fear into the atmosphere, remember who your trust is in and do not waver.

THE KINGDOMS OF THE EARTH WILL KNOW THAT HE ALONE IS GOD!

Declare these words over your life, over your family, over your nation and over the enemy that you are facing. Our trust is not in a god made with human hands but in the God who made those human hands. He will bring the victory.

Mind the Gap: An Exhortation From the Lord

Kathi Pelton

We all have a soul and a spirit. Our souls can either be under the control of the flesh or of the spirit. It is the will of a man that decides what controls the soul. God does not violate our will. He loves us so completely that He allows us the free will to choose who we will serve and how we will live.

Today, I heard His Spirit say to me,

“Kathi, tell My people to ‘Mind the gap.’”

When I ask Him what He meant by this I immediately saw a picture that had the word “soul” on one side and “spirit” on the other with a gap in between the two. Then the Holy Spirit said to me that the gap represents the will of every man and woman.

The past couple of years have been years of transition and alignments that have invited God’s people to yield their will to the ways and commands of God and to train their souls to be submitted fully to the His Spirit. It is a time of great purification and a call to holiness.

We must understand the times and seasons that we are living in and transitioning into. They are great times of victories and fruitfulness but they are also times that we will face giants and battles that require those victories to be won through yielding fully to God by submitting our souls to respond and obey the will of God.

One of the greatest battles that many are facing in this hour are concerning our souls and who (or what) is controlling our thoughts and emotions. God is training His people to yield to His will even while they find themselves in the grip of emotions and thoughts that scream for their way rather than God’s way.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9

This process is making a way to break through old and familiar ways that are not aligned with His ways. The “familiar” patterns that do not align with God’s often cost us victories and bring us into warfare and battles that God did not intend us to face. It is the mercy of the Lord that He has “turned up the heat” of the Refiner’s fire in order to purify us and save us from pain and losses in the days ahead. There are too many defeats that have been faced in past seasons because the souls of man have not be submitted to the ways of God.

We must MIND THE GAP! Our will is to be submitted to His will and His ways. The enemy comes to agitate, aggravate and cause offense in order to bring forth (provoke) a reaction from the soul rather than a response to His Spirit. The devil prowls in dark places seeking to strengthen his control over your soul (thoughts and emotions) so that he can assure your future defeats. The soul submitted to the will and ways of the Lord will dispossess the enemy’s strongholds as they listen and obey Him even when the instructions don’t make sense to the human mind. God is assuring victories ahead as we yield to the refinement.

We are in what I would term as “pre-battles”. These are the lions and bears that we must face and defeat before we face the giants in the land ahead. We have crossed over into the Promise Land and the giants aren’t far off now. We do not have to be afraid if we will take heed now and learn to “mind the gap” of our wills in order to embrace His ways.

As you go through each day be sure to pay close attention to those moments that your soul is being stirred to “react” (in fear, frustration, despair or offense). It is in those moments that a lion or bear is before you and you will need to yield your will and respond out of your spirit to gain the victory. Breathe deep and call upon His Spirit to help you!

“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

Call upon His peace to guard your heart and mind (to still your storm tossed thoughts and emotions). Then by an act of your will bring your soul into submission to the control of the Spirit. Then you will receive your victory and learn the ways of peace, which are His ways. We will be “giant-slayers” and bring fear to the enemy’s army as we allow this great work to take place in our lives.

New Year’s Day 2019: Crossing into the Promised Land

Kathi Pelton

On the morning of January 1st, 2019, I awoke and looked at my phone to see the time. It was 4:44 a.m. When I saw this something quickened in my spirit and I knew I needed to pray and pay attention to what the Lord desired to say.

The number four Biblically represents a demarcation point in creation; the fourth day the sun, moon, and stars were created, separating day from night and providing light for both. There are also four separate seasons in a year providing a demarcation of changes throughout each year. The fourth commandment is to rest and honor the Sabbath, which is a demarcation in time each week where we go from active work to focused rest.

This new year (2019) is a demarcation year that signals a time and season shift or change. It is also a year that God will reveal great light in the day and great light in the night (darkness). His light comes from the place of His perfect love and perfect love cast out fear. Fear of darkness will be met by the light of His perfect love and that love will cast our fears that have gripped the hearts of so many.

Immediately upon waking on 1/1/2019 at 4:44 I went to my Bible and opened it. As I did the Spirit asked me to look down and read the page that I had opened to. These are the first words that I read in 2019,

“Then the Lord said to Joshua, “Today I have rolled away the reproach (captivity/slavery) of Egypt from you.” So the place has been called Gilgal to this day. On the evening of the fourteenth day of the month, while camped at Gilgal on the plains of Jericho, the Israelites celebrated the Passover. The day after the Passover, that very day, they ate some of the produce of the land: unleavened bread and roasted grain. The manna stopped the day after they ate this food from the land; there was no longer any manna for the Israelites, but that year they ate the produce of Canaan.” Joshua‬ ‭5:9-12‬ ‭

In the Hebrew language, Gilgal means circle and stone. We see the “reproach of Egypt (captivity)” rolled away just as the stone was rolled away from the tomb of Jesus when He was resurrected. Light suddenly emerged out of darkness; both the darkness of captivity and the darkness of the tomb. Both events are “demarcation” moments that changed history by rolling away a stone.

Joshua 5:9-12 also speak of leaving a fort-year time of wilderness living, where the Israelites survived on daily manna for their provision rather than the fruits and harvest of the Promised Land. Suddenly manna was no longer needed and the Israelites enjoyed their first meal from the crops of Canaan.

This marked the end of the time of manna, stagnation, and wilderness survival; they were moving into the land of their inheritance. Though there were many enemies occupying their land, as they kept the Lord’s commands and instructions they would overthrow the enemies in order to possess and occupy their promise.

I truly believe that this is a picture of the time that we have now entered. We have crossed over and are having our hearts circumcised. The time of being idle has come to a close and the reproach of captivity is suddenly rolled away. We are getting our first tastes of the riches of Canaan.

The body of Christ is being asked to walk forward as one people; one family that follows all of the Lord’s commands and instructions. In doing this we will conquer enemies, tear down strongholds, and occupy lands of long-awaited promises.

The rewards and victories ahead are remarkable and yet we must be sober to the truth that the penalty for not following His ways and instructions will be costly. We must walk as one army, as one family, without jostling for position or moving according to the flesh. This is why it is imperative to allow the circumcision of our hearts to take place as we enter this new season. The old must pass away and we must all ascend the mountain of the Lord together to meet God face-to-face. There, we will receive wisdom and instructions of how to proceed while coming daily into intimacy and nurturing His presence.

“Then he said to Him, “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth.” So the LORD said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.”” Exodus‬ ‭33:15-17‬ ‭

As we meet with God and follow His instructions, our enemies will be struck with fear as they see the miracles and victories that the Lord will do through His people.

I conclude with a number of Scripture verses that the Lord has highlighted to me for this time and season. I encourage you to read them, pray into them, and carry them with you in your heart and mind.

“Son of man, what is this proverb you have in the land of Israel: ‘The days go by and every vision comes to nothing’? Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in Israel.’ Say to them, ‘The days are near when every vision will be fulfilled.’” Ezekiel‬ ‭12:22-23‬ ‭

• “I am the LORD your God: Walk in My statutes, keep My judgments, and do them;” Ezekiel‬ ‭20:19‬ ‭

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18

“For if you carefully keep all these commandments which I command you to do—to love the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways, and to hold fast to Him— then the LORD will drive out all these nations from before you, and you will dispossess greater and mightier nations than yourselves. Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the River Euphrates, even to the Western Sea, shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand against you; the LORD your God will put the dread of you and the fear of you upon all the land where you tread, just as He has said to you.” Deuteronomy‬ ‭11:22-25‬ ‭

This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John‬ ‭1:5-9‬

Take time to meditate on these verses. His word is the lamp that lights the way of our paths ahead. Let us hold fast to His written and spoken words as we move forward to possess the land.

Your Vats Will Overflow!

Today the Spirit spoke to me out of Proverbs 3:9-10,

“Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.” Proverbs‬ ‭3:9-10‬ ‭

There is a divine reset coming for many of you in the area of finance. I sensed the Lord desiring a “first fruits” offering to finish the 2018 year with honoring Him with an extravagant financial gift. The promise attached to it comes from the verse above from the Book of Proverbs. Honor the Lord with your wealth! This is an “honorarium to the Lord for His faithfulness and faithful promises.

2019 will be a year of new wine poured into new wine skins. There has been an emptying of the things of old that could not hold what the Lord is bringing forth in the days ahead. He has prepared us to walk honorably with wealth and emptied us of the old in order to fill us with the overflow of new wine. This will be a physical and spiritual overflow.

Will you prepare your first fruits offering to seal 2018 and to secure 2019? This will close the past year with thanksgiving and open the door of the new year with the honor that is attached to the promise in Proverbs 3:9-10.

Lastly, the Lord spoke to me from Ezekiel 12:23 recently saying that this will be the new proverb or new testimony in 2019 and beyond (I believe it shifted on 12/23/2018). I will start in verse 22 in order to give context,

“Son of man, what is this proverb you have in the land of Israel: ‘The days go by and every vision comes to nothing’? Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in Israel.’ Say to them, ‘The days are near when every vision will be fulfilled.” Ezekiel‬ ‭12:22-23‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Even this week we are seeing prophesies coming to pass that are decades old! This is merely the beginning of the days that will hear the testimonies of visions and prophesies fulfilled. It will be a time of Biblical and Personal prophesies coming to pass.

Proverbs 3:9-10 is a promise and prophesy that those who honor the Lord with their wealth will see come to pass!
