Prayer-A Life of Prayer

Below I have posted a couple of past post, mixed in with some nuggets of wisdom I have gained on this long, and sometimes odd journey, of Prayer,The Lord has had me on since I was a small child.

I pray they bless you and help you enter deeper into the place where your prayers become more effective in the lives of others and The Church.

"Intercession involves more than just prayer. Learn about your subject, study it, become well familiar with it. If you don't care enough to learn deeply about your subject, how can you enter in with compassion and empathy?"

The Ministry Of Prayer

Lets start with our essential scripture verses for The Ministry of Prayer to, and for ,The Body of Christ Locally and Globally!!

Romans 8:26-28
Amplified Bible (AMP)

So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groaning too deep for utterance.

And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God's will.

We are assured and know that {God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.

I feel led by The Holy Spirit to re-emphasize these verses and plead with, whoever He may lead to read this, to take up this Ministry to your Local Church and The Body of Christ Globally.

My heart is assured that we have past a road marker of sorts, in The Spirit. More than any other time in the history of The Church, I believe the Ministry of Prayer as explained and revealed in the verse above is needed, is mandatory and is the call of every mature spirit filled Christian.

Our brothers and sisters in Christ need us. Our leaders need us. We are a family. We are an army and we are connected in a very real way both naturally and spiritually.

There are things that the enemy has sent his servants on assignment to accomplish, in order to disrupt Gods plan for His Children and The Church. There are Angels sent from heaven on assignment for God to bring His Plans and Purposes to pass.

In the middle of this battle is us, The Church! The enemy already has mankind in his grip. His focus is to keep them blinded and buffet the Church so we will lose real Faith in The Lord Jesus and His Word!

The outcome of The war is and has been already determined. However the outcome of the battles we are in now, and will be in soon, depends on The Ministry of Prayer! I will state that again.

The outcome of The war is, and has been, already determined. However the outcome of the battles we are in now, and will be in soon, depends on The Ministry of Prayer.

In closing I will say what I said in an earlier post. There is ALWAYS a part we play in receiving Gods promises. The above promise is no different!

"We are assured and know that [[a]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose."

We must purposefully take up The Ministry of Prayer for The Local Church and The Body of Christ in The World.

"Anyone who would say a life of intercession is not a life of discipline,dedication and hard work: Does not live a life of intercession."

Prayer/Tongues and The Will of God

Romans 8:26-28
Amplified Bible (AMP)

So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groaning too deep for utterance.

And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God's will.

We are assured and know that [[a]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.

I don't think there is a better translation that brings out the revelation of these verses than The Amplified Bible. I chose to only post three verses, because the revelation is so deep,so profound that I want to be sure the reader grabs what The Lord is saying.

We have heard the verse over and over that says "All things work together for good....", but is this always true, no matter what? Or, like with any promise of God, is there an essential part we must play?

First, all things don't just magically work together for good. You can choose to do many things, that will quite hinder you, and not work together for your good, can't you? Within yourself, you can't control all circumstances or other people.

What, and most importantly, Who does the scripture reveal, that is essential to "All things working together for good..."

The revelation about the importance of the ministry of The Holy Spirit in a Believers life, in The Church and in the world on behalf of the Believer, is revealed mightily, not only in these verse, but in this entire chapter of Romans.

My friend you can pray from your mind. You can know The Word, you can be as religious as you like. But unless you are actively allowing God, through His Holy Spirit to partner with you in your labor of prayer, you are missing out on the promises of these verses. Not only for yourself, but your family, your church and your community.

I have stated it before, and without reservation I will state it here. If believers all across the planet, all of a sudden stopped praying in tongues, the foundations of the world systems would begin to fail, the foundations of government would begin to collapse. The enemy of God and man would reek havoc on The Church and mankind........

The only ministry, that is able to cause all things to work together for good, is The Ministry of The Holy Spirit partnering with the prayers and intercession of The Church on earth. This is how God causes His Will and Plan to come to pass on earth. This is how His purposes are accomplished.

This is why the verse says "who love God and are called according to HIS Purposes". The Church and an individual believer must be standing in a place of salvation and in a place where they have submitted themselves to Gods purposes. Then in that agreement, The Holy Spirit joins forces to cause Gods Plans and Purposes to be revealed and manifested on earth.

Don't limit what God can do through your effectual fervent, spirit filled prayer. He, right now, is asking you to join forces with him, and pray in the SPIRIT, PRAY IN TONGUES! If you have not been baptised in The SPIRIT with the evidence of speaking in tongues, then just ask The Father, and He will do so.

Allow Him to use you to bring His will to earth. Allow him to use your heart and voice to cause all things to work together for good, not only for you, but set your focus even higher, for The Church in The World!!!!!!

"The Life of an Intercessor can become so attached, so in tune with what The Lord wants to do on the earth through His Church, that their life becomes a living testament, an amazing journey, only fully understood by God and His chosen vessel."

Prayer For The Healing of The Body of Christ!!

The Body of Christ is in need of healing. There comes a time in the life of a believer that the Lord wants them to stand for healing, to stand for what belongs to them.

We can carry the scars and damage of past sin in our physical body. We can walk around with the remnant of brokenness and pain resonating in our body. Often times, we don't even realize how these things are holding us back, damaging our environment and the very people we are called to love.

The Lord loves us, is patient and merciful to us. However, we must, at one point, yield to His healing and delivering work in order to properly fulfill our mission and purpose.

There comes a day that He will lead us into a battle, that the outcome of ,will not only affect our destiny, but the destiny of others. A battle that will be presented to us as a clear choice, to fight, or not. To progress or not. To take ground or yield ground to our enemy.

So it is, with The Body of Christ, in this nation, right now. We have carried within The Lords Body, scars, pain, unforgiving, resentment and hate, for far too long. The LORD will have none of it any longer. The Church is His Body, and He demands that those in His Body yield and allow Him to heal.

He is no longer content with allowing his Body to walk this nation broken, scarred, segregated, full of distrust and hate. He is no longer willing for His Body to be out of balance and unhealthy.

He is leading us into a battle of His Making. Many will have a clear choice, to choose healing or not. To fight or not. Those who choose to stand and be healed will enter into a glorious ministry of reconciliation and deliverance.

Those who choose to hold on to the brokenness, prejudice, pain and resentment will remain unhealed and be subject to the attack of hatred that is coming upon this nation. Trying to battle using natural means that are doomed to fail.

I see in The Spirit a new labor of prayer. A battle in prayer to drive out of The Body of Christ all that offends. So that she can be free and able to move unhindered. Yes, drive out prejudice and racism. Yes drive out materialism. Yes drive out the foul political Spirit that has gripped her. Yes drive out dead religion, doubt and unbelief.

Drive out every false doctrine, worthless debate and foolish babbling. So much to drive out, so little time. However what He has determined.....He shall accomplish.

2 Chronicles 7:14-16
Amplified Bible (AMP)

If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer offered in this place.

For I have chosen and sanctified (set apart for holy use) this house, that My Name may be here forever, and My eyes and My heart will be here perpetually.

"It can be hard at times for the intercessor to see another standing on the stage or platform that he or she spent years laboring over in prayer. To see the fruit of their prayers in so many other lives, yet still have to struggle with issues in their own. Jealousy and Envy is always knocking at the door. That is okay, do not be condemned. Take it to The Lord ,He understands, He will not scold or reject you. He is invested in your life and ministry. Leave it at His alter with joy, naked and not ashamed, and He will be faithful every time, to give back to you the joy and peace that comes with seeing the fruit of your laboring with His Holy Spirit"

A Type and Shadow of Speaking In Tongues??
(Some edits of original post)

Notice, in the verses below, that although Hannah was not speaking she was pouring her soul out to God, from a deep place in her heart. So deep that she could not express it with words, only the utterance of her soul could express it.

She was praying very much like the rivers of living water that flow from our Spirit man, from that deep river that is released when we enter into fervent prayer. We pray in The Spirit out to God, uttering words that we do not know, crying out to The Lord!

Oh I believe with all my heart, that Hannah, if she was filled with The Holy Spirit would have been praying in tongues fervently, crying out to The Lord. I am convinced that this account is SHADOW AND A TYPE of deep,fervent prayer in The SPIRIT.

The kind of prayer that avails much and changes the course of lives,cities and nations!!

1 Samuel 1:12-17
Amplified Bible (AMP)

And as she continued praying before the Lord, Eli noticed her mouth.

Hannah was speaking in her heart; only her lips moved but her voice was not heard. So Eli thought she was drunk.

Eli said to her, How long will you be intoxicated? Put wine away from you.

But Hannah answered, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but I was pouring out my soul before the Lord.

Regard not your handmaid as a wicked woman; for out of my great complaint and bitter provocation I have been speaking.

Then Eli said, Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him.

The Next Chapter shows Gods Judgement and Mercy. Mercy toward Hannah. judgement toward Eli's sons. AND The the ministry of Samuel, a foreshadowing of Christ. Below Hannah's Prayer is prayed out, and the result of her prayers are Nation Changing. She prayed for a child and that Child was Part of Gods plan on Earth. A living testament to the life of an intercessor!

1 Samuel 2
New Living Translation (NLT)
Hannah’s Prayer of Praise

Then Hannah prayed:

“My heart rejoices in the Lord!
The Lord has made me strong.[a]
Now I have an answer for my enemies;
I rejoice because you rescued me.

No one is holy like the Lord!
There is no one besides you;
there is no Rock like our God.

“Stop acting so proud and haughty!
Don’t speak with such arrogance!
For the Lord is a God who knows what you have done;
he will judge your actions.

The bow of the mighty is now broken,
and those who stumbled are now strong.

Those who were well fed are now starving,
and those who were starving are now full.
The childless woman now has seven children,
and the woman with many children wastes away.

The Lord gives both death and life;
he brings some down to the grave[b] but raises others up.

The Lord makes some poor and others rich;
he brings some down and lifts others up.

He lifts the poor from the dust
and the needy from the garbage dump.
He sets them among princes,
placing them in seats of honor.
For all the earth is the Lord’s,
and he has set the world in order.

“He will protect his faithful ones,
but the wicked will disappear in darkness.
No one will succeed by strength alone.

Those who fight against the Lord will be shattered.
He thunders against them from heaven;
the Lord judges throughout the earth.
He gives power to his king;
he increases the strength[c] of his anointed one.”


Then in The New Testament:

ACTS 2:13-21

And all were beside themselves with amazement and were puzzled and bewildered, saying one to another, What can this mean?

But others made a joke of it and derisively said, They are simply drunk and full of sweet [intoxicating] wine.

But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them: You Jews and all you residents of Jerusalem, let this be [explained] to you so that you will know and understand; listen closely to what I have to say.

For these men are not drunk, as you imagine, for it is [only] the third hour (about 9:00 a.m.) of the day;
But [instead] this is [the beginning of] what was spoken through the prophet Joel:

And it shall come to pass in the last days, God declares, that I will pour out of My Spirit upon all mankind, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy [[b]telling forth the divine counsels] and your young men shall see visions ([c]divinely granted appearances), and your old men shall dream [[d]divinely suggested] dreams.

Yes, and on My menservants also and on My maidservants in those days I will pour out of My Spirit, and they shall prophesy [[e]telling forth the divine counsels and [f]predicting future events pertaining especially to God's kingdom].

And I will show wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth beneath, blood and fire and smoking vapor;

The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the obvious day of the Lord comes--that great and notable and conspicuous and renowned [day].

And it shall be that whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord [[g]invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord--Christ] shall be saved.

Can you see the shadow and type. Pray Fervently. Make your request known to God. Get a big picture view of what God wants to do through you and your prayers!

Stanley Frodsham's Prophetic Warning - 1965

Let him who has ears, let him hear. Study this carefully.

This prophecy was given at the Elim Bible Institute USA, in 1965 by the late Stanley Frodsham. Brother Frodsham was one of those who received his Baptism in the Holy Ghost at Sunderland in 1908 where the Pentecostal movement in Britain had its beginnings.

With great judgments will I plead with the population of this country. Great darkness is coming upon the countries that have heard my gospel but no longer walk in it. My wrath shall come upon them. The darkness shall be so great, and the anguish so sore that men will cry out for death and shall not find it. There shall be a lingering death, famine, and great catastrophes.

My wrath shall be manifested against all ungodliness. It shall come with great intensity. You have known My love but have not known My wrath, My severity. My judgments are literal and not a thing to be lightly passed over. Realize the severity of My judgments and My intense anger against the sin in My household. My judgments shall begin in My house. For I will cleanse My house that it be not partaker of My wrath against the iniquities of the cities. Before I visit the nations in judgement I will begin at My house. When I do cause My wrath to come upon the cities of the world My people shall be separate. I desire a people without spot or wrinkle, and such shall be preserved by Me in the time of My wrath coming upon all iniquity and unrighteousness.

I am going to prepare you for the coming days by a hard path that will cause you to cry out continually unto Me. For when the going is easy, men do not seek Me, but rejoice in a temporary blessing. And when that blessing is removed they so often turn this way and that way but do not come to Me. I am showing you these things that you may seek Me continually and with great diligence. As you seek Me, I will open up truths to you that you have not seen before; and these very truths will be that which will enable you to stand in these last days. As you are persecuted, reviled and rejected by your brethren then you will turn unto Me with all your heart and seek Me for that spiritual life you have need of. And when tribulation comes you will have that which will enable you to stand. For many shall be tossed to and fro. Men's hearts shall fail them because of trouble on every hand. For these days shall be very terrible, the like of which has never been seen before.

When I visit My people in mighty revival power, it is to prepare them for the darkness ahead. With the glory shall come great darkness, for the glory is to prepare My people for the darkness. I will enable My people to go through because of the visitation of My Spirit. Take heed to yourselves lest you be puffed up and think that you have arrived. Many shall be puffed up as in the olden days, for many then received My message but they continued not in it. Did I not anoint Jehu? Yet the things I desired were not accomplished in his life. Listen to the messengers, but do not hold men's persons in admiration. For many whom I shall anoint mightily, with signs and miracles, shall become lifted up and shall fall by the wayside. I do not this willingly; I have made provision that they might stand. I call many into this ministry, and equip them; but remember that many shall fall. They shall be like bright lights, and the people shall delight in them. But they shall be taken over by deceiving spirits and shall lead many of My people astray.

Hearken diligently concerning these things, for in the last days shall come seducing spirits that shall turn many of My anointed ones away. Many shall fall through divers lusts, and because of sin abounding. But if you will seek Me diligently I will put My Spirit within you. When one shall turn to the right hand or to the left you shall not turn with them, but keep your eyes wholly on the Lord. The coming days are the most dangerous, difficult and dark, but there shall be a mighty outpouring of My Spirit upon many cities, and many shall be destroyed. My people must be diligently warned concerning the days that are ahead. Many shall turn after seducing spirits; many are already seducing My people. It is those who DO righteousness that are righteous. Many cover their sins by great theological words. But I warn you of seducing spirits who instruct My people in an evil way. Many of these I shall anoint, that they may purify and sift My people; for I would have a holy people.

Many shall come with seducing spirits and hold out lustful enticements. You will find that after I have visited My people again, the way shall become more and more narrow, and fewer shall walk there in. But be not deceived, the ways of righteousness are My ways. For though Satan come as an angel of light hearken not to him; for those who perform miracles and speak not righteousness are not of Me. I warn you with great intensity that I am going to judge My house and have a church without spot or wrinkle when I come. I desire to open your eyes and give you spiritual understanding, that you may not be deceived but may walk with uprightness of heart before Me, loving righteousness and hating every evil way. Look unto Me and I will make you to perceive with the eyes of the Spirit the things that lurk in darkness, that are not visible to the human eye. Let me lead you in this way that you may perceive the powers of darkness and battle against them. It is not a battle against flesh and blood; for if you battle in that way you accomplish nothing. But if you let Me take over and battle against the powers of darkness then they are defeated, and then liberation is brought to My people.

I warn you to search the Scriptures diligently these last days. For the things that are written shall indeed be made manifest. There shall come deceivers among My people in increasing numbers, who shall speak forth the truth and shall gain the favor of the people. For the people shall examine the Scriptures and say, "What these men say is true." Then when they have gained the hearts of the people, then and THEN ONLY shall they bring out these wrong doctrines. Therefore, I say that you should not give your hearts to men, nor hold people's persons in admiration. For by these very persons shall Satan enter into My people. WATCH FOR SEDUCERS. Do you think a seducer will brandish a new heresy and flaunt it before the people? He will speak the words of righteousness and truth, and will appear as a minister of light, declaring the Word. The people's hearts shall be won. Then, when the hearts are won, they will bring out their doctrines, and the people shall be deceived. The people shall say, "Did he not speak thus and thus? And did we not examine it from the Word? Therefore he is a minister of righteousness.

This that he has now spoken we do not see in the Word, but it must be right, for the other things he spoke were true."

Be not deceived. For the deceiver will first work to gain the hearts of many, and then shall bring forth his insidious doctrines. You cannot discern those who are of Me and those who are not of Me when they start to preach. But seek Me constantly, and then when these doctrines are brought out you shall have a witness in your heart that these are not of Me. Fear not, for I have warned you. Many will be deceived. But if you walk in holiness and uprightness before the Lord, your eyes shall be open and the Lord will protect you. If you will constantly look unto the Lord you will know when the doctrine changes, and will not be brought into it. If your heart is right I will keep you; and if you will look constantly to Me I will uphold you.

The minister of righteousness shall be on this wise -- his life shall agree with the Word, and his lips shall give forth that which is wholly true, and it will be no mixture. When the mixture appears then you will know he is not a minister of righteousness. The deceivers speak first the truth and then error, to cover their own sins which they love. Therefore I exhort and command you to study the Scriptures relative to seducing spirits, for this is one of the great dangers of these last days.

I desire you to be firmly established in My Word and not in the personalities of men, that you will not be moved as so many shall be moved. I would keep you in the paths of righteousness. Take heed to yourselves and follow not the seducing spirits that are already manifesting themselves. Diligently inquire of Me when you hear something that you have not seen in the Word, and do not hold people's persons in admiration, for it is by this very method that Satan will hold many of My people.

I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly, that you may triumph where I triumphed. On the cross I triumphed over all the power of Satan; and I have called you to walk in the same path. It is when your life is on the cross that you shall know the victory I have experienced. As you are on the cross, and seated in Me, then you shall know the power of the resurrection. When I come in My glory, the principalities and powers in the heavenly places shall be utterly broken. Fear not, for I have given you power whereby you may tread down the powers of darkness, and come forth victorious through every trial. As you are on the cross then you are victorious. It was on the cross that I triumphed over all the powers of the enemy. My life shall flow through you as you enter into these precious truths. Look unto Me, and appropriate My life. As your eyes and desires are toward Me, and you know what it is to be crucified with Me, then you shall live, and your anointing shall increase. It was not in My life that I walked upon the earth, but it was in My life when I was upon the cross that I openly spoiled principalities and powers.

I am showing you truths that shall cause you to overcome, to have power over the wicked one, truth that will liberate you and those round about you. You shall know also the fellowship of My sufferings. There is no other way whereby you may partake of this heavenly glory and reign with Me. "If we suffer with Him we shall reign with Him." I desire to make those truths real within you. As you keep them before you, you will liberate many who are in bondage. You will have revelation of those who are in darkness and will have the keys to liberate the captives. Many seek to liberate, but they have not the keys. Upon the cross continually you will know the power of My resurrection that you may also partake of My glory. As you are willing to walk with Me and rejoice in your sufferings, you shall partake of My glory. Look unto Me for you have need of power to overcome the wicked one, and the bondages in other lives.

If you will indeed judge yourself you shall not be judged. As you seek My face and desire to be cleansed by Me in all truth and sincerity of heart I will judge you in the secret place, and the things that are in the secret place of your heart shall not be made manifest to others. I will do it in the secret place and no man shall know it. And the shame that shall be seen on many faces shall not be seen on your face. Therefore in love and mercy I am instructing you. And therefore I have said that if a man judge himself he shall not be judged. It is not My good pleasure that the shame of My people be seen by all. How can I judge the world if I judge not first My own house? Hearken unto these things I am telling you. If you will not hearken unto Me thy shame shall be evident to all.

I would have you consider My life on earth -- the anointing upon Me was great and yet the temptations were great on every side; in one form and then in another, offering Me first the glory of the kingdoms of the earth and then reviling and persecuting Me. There will be great glory given to My people, and yet the temptations shall be intensified from every side. Think not that with the glory there shall be no temptations or persecutions. The glory of My church shall be great, and so shall be the temptations from the enemy to turn My people from My paths. I am warning you that when the glory shall be manifested, the temptations shall be great, until very few that start shall finish. First there shall be offered them great worldly possessions, and then great revilings and unbelief.

Consider your Lord, that as He walked so it shall be for you. There shall be need of great intensity of purpose. At times everyone shall rise up against you, simply to turn you from the course that I would put you in. It is written of Me that I set My face as a flint to go to the direction My Father had prescribed for Me. If you will finish the course the Lord has laid down for you, you will have to set your face as a flint. With great determination you must walk in the course laid down for you. Many of your loved ones and those who follow with you shall persuade you and try to turn you from the course. With many words that seem right in the natural will they speak to you. Did not Christ rebuke Peter who would turn Him from the course God had prescribed?

Understand these two things and meditate upon them solemnly -- the persecution and the darkness shall be as great as the glory in order to try to turn the elect and the anointed ones from the path the Lord has laid down for them. Many shall start but few shall be able to finish because of the greatness of grace that shall be needed to be able to endure unto the end. The temptations and the persecution of your Lord was continuous. He was tempted by Satan in many forms throughout His entire life and even to the cross when the ungodly cried out, "If thou be the Christ come down from the cross." Think not that there shall be a time of no persecution, for it shall be from the time of your anointing until the end. Difficulties, and great persecution to the end. The Lord must prepare you to be an overcomer in all things, that you may be able to finish the course. The persecution shall increase even as the anointing shall increase.

In paths of judgement and righteousness shall the Lord God lead His people and bring them into that place which He has chosen for them. For the Lord has chosen a place for His people, a place of righteousness and holiness where He shall encamp round about them. And all who will be led of the Lord shall be brought into this holy place. For the Lord delights to dwell in His people and to manifest Himself through His people. The holiness of the Lord shall be manifested through His people. Let the Lord lead you and He will lead you in difficult places. He led His people of old through a place where no man dwelt, where no man had passed through, in a place of great danger and in the shadow of death. The Lord will indeed again lead His people through such places, and yet He will bring them out into a place of great glory. Understand that the way toward the glory is fraught with great danger and many shall fall to the right or to the left, many shall camp on lesser ground. But the Lord has a place of holiness and no unclean thing shall dwell among His people.

Put your trust in Him and He will bring you into a place of holiness. He desires to bring His people into great glory -- the like of which has never been seen for what the Lord will do for those who put their trust in Him. It is a place of darkness and great danger that separates His people into the place He would have them walk in. He will protect them from the voices that would turn them from His path. He will bring them through the dark places, and through the treacherous paths, out into the light of His glory. He will rejoice greatly over His beloved and cause you to be filled with joy unspeakable. He seeks to lead His people into a new place of grace and glory where He will indeed encamp among them. Put your trust in Him and He will surely bring you into this new place.

Fear not the days to come, but fear this only -- that you shall walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord. In this time I am ordering and setting up My church and it shall indeed be pure, without spot or wrinkle. I will do work in My beloved that has not been seen since the foundation of the world. I have shown you these things that you may seek the Lord diligently with all your heart, and that you may be a preserver of His people.

Run not to this one nor to that one, for the Lord has so ordained that salvation is in Him and in Him alone. You shall not turn to this shepherd or to that one, for there shall be a great scattering upon the earth. Therefore look unto Him for He will indeed make these things clear to you. You shall not look here nor there, for the wells that once had water shall be no more. But as you diligently seek Him He shall increase your strength and your faith, that He may be able to prepare you for this time that is coming.

The truths that I have revealed to you must become a part of you -- not just an experience, but a part of your very nature. Is it not written that I demand truth in the inward parts? It is the truth of the Lord expressed in your very being that shall hold you. Many shall experience the truth, but the truth must become a part of you, your very life. As men and women look upon you they will hear not only the voice but see the expression of the truth. Many shall be overcome because they are not constant in My ways, and because they have not permitted the truths to become part of them. I am showing you these things that you may be prepared, and having done all, to stand.

One More Time!!!

I will start with a statement that I rarely make, if ever on this blog: I am 100% sure that I have heard from The Lord on the subject matter that I will touch on here.

Now don't put on the brakes. I know some will say you cant be 100% sure about that. But, when you read and hear the heart of what I am going to write, I believe you will agree.

Also. we need the Prophets of the last days, the real Prophets that are set in THE CHURCH, THE LOCAL CHURCH, to stand up and speak, so the false can be burned away like the chaff and crushed like stones.
There have been things lately that The Lord will not let me be timid on. Some things need to be spoken clearly and precisely in these last days. Like  laser guided missiles to destroy the enemies lies and strongholds he has had over the Church for the last few decades.

Jeremiah 23:28-29
Amplified Bible (AMP)

28 The prophet who has a dream, let him tell his dream; but he who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully. What has straw in common with wheat [for nourishment]? says the Lord.

29 Is not My word like fire [that consumes all that cannot endure the test]? says the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks in pieces the rock [of most stubborn resistance]?

The Lord is calling men and women, both Ministers and Laymen alike to stand up, ONE MORE TIME! (For some ONE LAST TIME. So they can finish their course with Dignity and Honor!)

Seems like a simple enough word. But this is our part. We must let them! We must help them! We must embrace them and recieve them! Some of these will bring with them a mighty Prophetic Anointing that is needed in The Local Church right now. Some will bring a powerful Gift of Mercy that will be empowered by The Love of Christ! They will be moved with compassion, much in the same way Jesus is, and will be vessels to heal many.

There are a few, not many, but a few, that you may never see. They will rise up in the hidden place, and speak to the nations, speak to the Principalities and Powers above the nations. They will carry an Anointing that has not been seen in some time.

Some of these men and women, may have, and probably have, made some big mistakes in the past. They may have stepped into areas they should not have. They may have said things they shouldn't have said.

However, God is stirring in them to cast it before Him and to Rise Up One More Time. To lay it all on the line for Jesus. There may be some that will rise up in great power in order to enter closed nations, and there they will meet their Destiny!!

Pray for the ones that God is calling to Rise Up, ONE MORE TIME!!!

We need them. God needs them to Rise up! They are precious in His Sight!

The ones that are doing battle get cut. The ones on the front lines holding their own sword and  shield to protect others are the ones being battered, the ones that fall are the ones that have to get up and fight, again and again!!

If you are one of the ones that God has been pulling on to return to the vsion He put in your heart, answer the call. You know if it is you. You know He has been saying to you. Rise up one more time. Get back in the Fight of Faith. Pick up that mantle again. Speak those words again! Declare those promises again. Love people again!


         What better scripture to meditate on than this. Time is Short!! Answer The Call !!!!!!!

Hebrews 10:32-39
New Living Translation (NLT)

Think back on those early days when you first learned about Christ. Remember how you remained faithful even though it meant terrible suffering. Sometimes you were exposed to public ridicule and were beaten, and sometimes you helped others who were suffering the same things. You suffered along with those who were thrown into jail, and when all you owned was taken from you, you accepted it with joy. You knew there were better things waiting for you that will last forever.

So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.

“For in just a little while,
the Coming One will come and not delay.

And my righteous ones will live by faith.
But I will take no pleasure in anyone who turns away.”

But we are not like those who turn away from God to their own destruction. We are the faithful ones, whose souls will be saved.

*ALERT* Not an *Alarm*

A bit of an *ALERT*. Not an *Alarm* but worth taking precaution. I sense this is for Christians and Ministers, but can apply to anyone. Please take extra precautions when traveling, especially abroad and in major cities.

The Lord has been bringing certain things to my attention through the news, personal experience and a dream my son had the other night.

I guess the "WORD" is to be diligent. Consider traveling in teams of at least two. Ladies some security(for ministers) may not be a bad idea. All ladies should prayerfully consider traveling with a team with trusted, and able men.

No fear. Jesus himself said, be as shrewd as serpents and harmless as doves...

Keep Prayed up. Pray in The Spirit as you travel. Stay close to The Holy Spirit and sensitive so you can take the detours needed to avoid trouble. Again No fear. We serve a mighty God!
