"Piercing the Darkness: 5 Keys to Overcome Evil and Take New Ground" Jennifer A. Miskov, Redding, CA

This article is dedicated to all of the pioneers on the front lines and those in the persecuted Church.

“As long as I am with you My life is the light that pierces the world’s darkness.”(John 9:5 TPT)

If you are reading this right now, it means that you are born for such a time as this. Inside of you, you carry hope and an answer to the world’s problems. God has given each one of us strategies to overcome evil and to bring light into the darkest of places. Each generation is faced with an opportunity to break through and to take more ground for the future. We are called to carry and to be the light of Jesus in the midst of a crooked and depraved generation. We are called to shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of Life (Philippians 2:14-16).

When storms arise, God’s power also arises. In the face of opposition, we are given the opportunity to be courageous and to act for Christ. We are also being strengthened to steward the greater inheritance we will gain on the other side. The only way through a storm is to face it. Have you ever seen a ship escape crashing waves by trying to avoid them or go parallel to them? The only way to advance against the evil coming against us is to turn our ship head on and go straight through the pounding waves to the other side. We step through fear by clinging to our Father in Heaven, wholeheartedly trusting in Him to lead us through. Receive this promise from God in Isaiah 43:1-2 where He says,

Fixing our affection on Jesus lifts off heavy burdens and keeps us connected to the all-powerful God who is Lord over all.

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are Mine. 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.”

5 Keys to Help Dismantle the Forces Coming Against Us and to Release God’s Power

It is important that we remain one with Christ, connected to the Body, and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. He will lead us differently each time so it is imperative to always stay close to Him. With that said, I want to share a few weapons we have access to that can help dismantle the strongholds coming against our generation when the time arises.

In Christ and Under His Authority

1. Love has the power to dismantle hatred and to reveal the nature of Jesus. Love is a weapon of warfare that can dismantle the stronghold of hatred. Because of the intensity of hatred arising in our day, our love must increase and become fiercer. Above all, we must recognize who the real enemy is. Our battle is never against flesh and blood or each other but rather against principalities and powers in which we have full authority and victory over in Christ (Ephesians 6). The enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy but Jesus has come to give us abundant life (John 10:10).

The weapons of our warfare are not like the world’s. We must take dominion and confront the spirits coming against us by choosing to love people fiercely and realize the hatred aimed toward us is the enemy trying to silence us. By the power of the Holy Spirit alone, we must choose love in the midst of hatred. Love has the power to cover a multitude of sins and melt even the hardest of hearts. The more extreme the hatred, the more extreme our love must be to overshadow it. We must rebuke the enemy and instead bless those who curse us and pray for them (Matthew 5:43-45). When we recognize what battle we are truly in, having the correct perspective, and step out to love, it changes everything. We must be possessed by the Holy Spirit to have the power to love in the face of hatred.

2. Focus has the power to dismantle distraction and to release destiny.Focus is necessary for us to step into and fulfill our God-given destinies. Distraction is prevalent in our day and is a tactic the enemy uses to try to get us isolated from each other because he knows that unity in Christ is an unstoppable force to be reckoned with (Psalm 133). In Psalm 27:3-4 (NIV), King David says that:

“Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. (Photo via Max Pixel)

“One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.”

While many of us, thankfully, do not have to face an army head on, we do face an army of opposing thoughts and distractions that compete for first place in our thoughts. The one thing David sought was to behold the beauty of the Lord. What is our one thing in a world of options? A personal revolution will take place when everything else is stripped away and we wholeheartedly give Jesus first place again in our lives and thoughts. Focusing on Jesus dismantles the spirit of distraction and confusion and leads us into a place of intimacy and peace in Jesus like never before.

3. Worship has the power to dismantle oppression and to shift the atmosphere. Worship in the midst of a storm dismantles oppression and may even ignite the next “Great Awakening”. In the story of the Moravians worshiping on a ship in the midst of a storm, John Wesley observed their strength in God and was marked. Influenced by his new friends, he later went on to lead the Great Awakening and start the Methodist movement. It is crucial to worship God in every circumstance. Fixing our affection on Jesus lifts off heavy burdens and keeps us connected to the all-powerful God who is Lord over all. Our worship should not change depending on our circumstances because God never changes.

In 2 Chronicles 20, King Jehoshaphat was facing the greatest army ever known in his generation so he called his people to praise God for His holiness and give thanks. In this situation, while the people offered praise and thanksgiving, behind the scenes, God was at work to dismantle their enemies. In the midst of the greatest battles of our lives, is our first response to seek the Lord and pour out an offering of worship and praise? Worship is one of the most powerful weapons of warfare I have personally experienced. It helps us keep our focus on “The One Thing” rather than letting fear and anxiety consume us. It also clears the evil around and even creates a well for generations to come to step into the momentum of Heaven in that place. Most importantly, it knits our hearts together with our loving Father.

It is important that we remain one with Christ, connected to the Body, and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

4. Intercession has the power to dismantle terror and save lives. Intercession, or focused prayer, has the power to dismantle terror and every stronghold that comes against us. For those who feel called to remove barriers and pave the way for future generations to walk in great freedom and peace, I want to encourage you to study the life of Rees Howells (1879-1950). I believe his life holds keys we need for today in dismantling the evil coming against us. He was a revivalist from Wales who raised up an army of intercessors to lay down their lives on the altar of intercession and cover those on the front lines in prayer. They have marked results of rerouting Hitler’s attacks through their prophetic intercession.

Intercession is huge. If you know any missionaries or others who are giving their lives for the sake of the Gospel in dangerous places, your prayers make such a massive difference and can even be the difference between life and death (Acts 12). Whether you are on the front lines or in a comfortable home, your prayers can literally shift the direction our world takes. It is our responsibility to cover and support our family in Christ who are planted in the darkest places (Hebrews 13:1-3). May the spirit of intercession fall upon us all so that we can more vigilantly stand in prayer with our brothers and sisters afar.

5. Courage has the power to dismantle fear and to advance God’s Kingdom. Courage to step out in faith, regardless of what opposition may come, dismantles the spirit of fear and advances the Kingdom of God all around us. It’s in those times when everything seems to come against us that God is preparing us to break through into a new level of authority, power, strength, and dominion. Like an eagle, allow the resistance you are facing to let you soar even higher above the storm. This is the time to spread out your wings more than ever before. When fear creeps its way at your door, ask the Lord what is really going on and what greater breakthroughs He’s about to lead you into. It’s likely that one small act of courage and following your heart, regardless of the opposition, can set things in motion to have ripple effects for generations to come.

In the midst of the poverty spirit coming against her generation during the Great Depression, that was precisely the time when Aimee Semple McPherson (1890-1944) remained obedient to the leading of the Spirit to step out in faith and build one of the largest churches in California. With only a small amount of money to begin with, by the end of the construction, she was able to pay for the whole building in cash. Whenever something is coming against us, we must move in the opposite spirit and continue on following the leading of the Holy Spirit even if it doesn’t make any sense. Our circumstances should never dictate whether or not we remain obedient to follow the voice of God.

Blessing

These keys just scratch the surface and are not to be an exhaustive list. My goal is not to be enemy-focused but rather to equip the Body of Christ to both stand and take more ground for the Kingdom of God, no matter what we’re faced with. In Christ, we have authority to face and win any battle the Lord leads us into. Above all of these tools, we must be led of the Spirit always no matter how and what that might look like. May you be stirred to be fiercer in your love, more focused on the face of Jesus, burdened with intercession for those who are on the front lines, and courageous like never before. Keeping your eyes on Jesus always, may you continue to move forward toward all that God has for you no matter what comes against you. (Photo via Unsplash)

Remember that it’s just after the darkest time in the night that the dawn breaks through. Blessing you with courage to remain standing no matter what you are facing today and to endure until the end. Receive a fresh baptism of fire today. He is worthy of it all. I close with a prayer taken from my latest book Walking on Water:

“I pray that your focus never leaves the face of Jesus. I bless you with a fierce determination to take hold of Him no matter what the cost. May you be marked His presence all the days of your life. May you be ruined for anything less than His satisfying love. I bless you with a life that cannot function or exist without His presence. I pray that you are undone by the one thing and that Psalm 27 becomes a new anthem in your life. I pray that you would burn with a fiery passion and fall deeper in love with Jesus each day. May you receive a fresh impartation of hunger for God. May the Holy Spirit continue to come in even greater power for His name’s sake. I bless you with a mighty baptism of love and of the fire of God. May you be utterly swept away in the tender love of Jesus until you are willing to go anywhere and do anything to be closer to Him still.” (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Choose Abba in this Month of Av" Christine Vales, St. Simons Island, GA

Decisions, decisions, decisions. Life is full of decisions. We make a series of choices every day of our lives, but some seasons are especially full of decisions. Such is this Jewish month of Av. As the fifth month of the ecclesiastical year on the Hebrew calendar, it is associated with grace. This is especially good considering all the choices to be made. In addition to grace, we need discernment…but how do we get it? The answer lies right before our eyes. The answer is in Av itself.

Do We Really Know God as Our Abba Father?

The word Av means “Abba or Father”. He is the source of our discernment and our very life. The question is: do we really know God as our Abba Father? We have to start here. Do we know Him as Father? And if not, how can we? We can know Him as Father, but it is our choice. He has given us free will to choose Him. This perhaps is the most important choice of all. Scripture points our hearts in the right direction: “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God” (Jn 1:12-13).
Knowing Him as Father starts with receiving and believing in Him. When we receive Him, we receive His forgiveness and become His child. Believing Him means trusting and having faith in Him. So, before we move on, take time to consider His offer of forgiveness and adoption: “For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, ‘Abba! Father’ (Rom. 8:14-15 emphasis mine)! May His Words open your to heart to receive Him as your Abba Father.

How Hearing His Voice Changes Us
“So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” (Rom 10:17)

Did you hear that? The Word says that our faith grows as we hear. Can you see how belief is linked with hearing? In this month of choices, hearing is the action that the Lord is highlighting. When God is our Father, we have access to His discernment and wisdom, all we have to do is ask and He will freely give it to us.

“But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” (James 1:5)

When we position our hearts to hear His voice, we grow in discernment. Hearing is clearly depicted in many of this month’s characteristics. The tribe associated with this month is Simeon and his name means “gracious hearing”. If you study Simeon, he seems to be hard of hearing, however, the Lord is merciful and redeems our bad decisions for our good and His glory.

We are Faced with a Choice at the Edge of Our Promised Land

Consider how Israel was positioned in Av. Were they presented with important, life changing decisions? The answer is yes! It was on the 9th of Av when the spies returned with their news report of the Promised Land (Num. 13). Although there were giants in this very fruitful land, Joshua and Caleb believed the Lord and encouraged Israel to go forth to possess the land. The other spies, however, gave a negative report and instilled fear.

Israel was faced with a choice on the edge of the Promised Land. They went with the majority and chose unbelief. This led to devastating, immediate ramifications in Israel’s history. Specifically, forty years of wandering in the wilderness, culminating in the death of that entire generation, twenty years and older. That generation would never enter the Promised Land.
The Lord presents us with a similar choice this month. As we come out of the three-week period called “Between the Straits” on Av 9, we also stand at the edge of our Promised Land. As we exit this narrow passage of time, we will be presented with a choice: To believe the good report of the Lord or settle in unbelief. Whose news report will you listen to?

May we learn from Israel’s history and choose to hear and believe the truth of our Father’s voice. May we tune in to His roar of truth and love leading us in His way.
Where do you find yourself this month of Av? This is not just about history and the Israelites…it’s about you! What choice lies before you? Whose voice will you listen to? May you position yourself to hear His truth. I implore you to believe the good report of the Lord. Unbelief has severe consequences. Believing, on the other hand, is credited to you as righteousness (Gen. 15:6).

Most importantly, have you accepted His offer of forgiveness and adoption? In this month of choices, make the best decision of your life and choose this day whom you will serve…Him (Jos. 24:15)! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Most recently while Christine and her husband, Carlos, began exploring the Hebrew roots of their Christian faith, Christine discovered the Lord’s prophetic calendar. The Lord began to stir her prophetic gift through understanding His appointed times and seasons as they were understood by His people, and the need for them to be understood today! After several years of studying and creating her own handwritten Hebrew/Gregorian Calendar, Christine created and released the first edition of “His Appointed Times: Hebrew/Gregorian Calendar & Journal” in 2017. Christine continues to follow His calling in the prophetic, as she has since the beginning of her story, where she faithfully is lifting up her voice to the Lord and raising her eyes to the fields…for they are already white for harvest (John 4:35)!

"Overcoming Legion and Bringing Healing to Our Regions"

Katie Souza, Maricopa, AZ

I received the revelation about Legion several years ago and have personally experienced many miracles because of it. I’ve been healed of lupus, chronic bladder and yeast infections, the flu, and all manner of afflictions that the spirit of Legion had placed on me. Because of Holy Spirit’s guiding, I’ve gotten such dominion over Legion that I can now travel all over the world and teach other people how to get healed and completely free from this demonic spirit.

I’m sure you and your loved ones would like to have unusual diseases healed and would give anything to have the chattering noise in your mind completely cease, so that you can hear God clearly and get the revelation you need for breakthrough.

Living Among the Tombs

Beyond taking back our neighborhoods for the Kingdom, we must take regions of land all over the world. There are certain Biblical keys that will empower you to do just that. Let’s study the story of the man who lived among the tombs.

Mark 5:1-20 (AMP emphasis mine) reads, “They (Jesus and His disciples) came to the other side of the sea, to the region of the Gerasenes. When Jesus got out of the boat, immediately a man from the tombs with an unclean spirit met Him, and the man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with chains. For he had often been bound with shackles [for the feet] and with chains, and he tore apart the chains and broke the shackles into pieces, and no one was strong enough to subdue and tame him. Night and day, he was constantly screaming and shrieking among the tombs and on the mountains and cutting himself with [sharp] stones.

“Seeing Jesus from a distance, he ran up and bowed down before Him [in homage]; and screaming with a loud voice, he said, ‘What business do we have in common with each other, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore you by God [swear to me], do not torment me!’ For Jesus had been saying to him, ‘Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!’ He was asking him, ‘What is your name?’ And he replied, ‘My name is Legion; for we are many.’ And he began begging Him repeatedly not to send them out of the region. Now there was a large herd of pigs grazing there on the mountain. And the demons begged Him, saying, ‘Send us to the pigs so that we may go into them!’ Jesus gave them permission. And the unclean spirits came out [of the man] and entered the pigs. The herd, numbering about two thousand, rushed down the steep bank into the sea; and they were drowned [one after the other] in the sea. (Photo via Unsplash)

“The herdsmen [tending the pigs] ran away and reported it in the city and in the country. And the people came to see what had happened. They came to Jesus and saw the man who had been demon-possessed sitting down, clothed and in his right mind, the man who had [previously] had the “legion” [of demons]; and they were frightened. Those who had seen it described [in detail] to the people what had happened to the demon-possessed man, and [told them all] about the pigs. So the people began to beg with Jesus to leave their region. As He was stepping into the boat, the [Gentile] man who had been demon-possessed was begging with Him [asking] that he might go with Him [as a disciple]. Jesus did not let him [come], but [instead] He said to him, ‘Go home to your family and tell them all the great things that the Lord has done for you, and how He has had mercy on you.’ So he [obeyed and] went away and began to publicly proclaim in Decapolis [the region of the ten Hellenistic cities] all the great things that Jesus had done for him; and all the people were astonished.”

The above is a regional story but begins with healing for just one man.Like that man, as you are healed and delivered of Legion, you will be able to go preach in the Decapolis (the region of the 10 cities in your area of land.)

Medicating a Demon?

When I first got out of prison, I began to have vertigo all the time. After eight months of dealing with the awful symptoms, I was tested and told that I had Lupus. This horrible and painful disease causes the body to attack itself, destroying everything in the body until it ultimately brings death.

The Lord spoke to me, “Don’t go back to the doctor. I’m going to heal you.” Within a week, I had a dream that I was walking among some tombstones. Upon awaking, the Lord gave me a Scripture from Mark 5, “And he, (the demoniac), had his dwelling among the tombs.” Although I didn’t fully understand the revelation, within a few days, the Lord healed me! The power of God came upon me and He completely took away the vertigo and everything associated with Lupus.

I didn’t understand why I had gotten sick or why I was healed. And then, five or six years later, I began having similar symptoms again. I had vertigo and flu-like symptoms every other week. It was horrible. I would get a prescription for powerful antibiotics, but they wouldn’t help. At the end of the round of meds, I was sicker than when I started them. That’s when I learned that you can’t medicate a demon. (Just saying.)

During the cycle of horror, I remember preaching with a temperature of 103°. At the end of the sermon, I couldn’t remember a word I had said. I was praying, “I hope I helped somebody. Please God, HELP!”

Silencing the Chatter

During this time, I was seeking the Lord, but I couldn’t hear Him. My mind was full of noise – nonsensical, useless chatter that had nothing to do with what I was thinking, asking, or talking about. My daily prayer was for Him to show me who or what was filling my mind. I would pray and speak in tongues and then listen, but got nothing. Then, one day in the middle of this battle, I heard the Lord say, “Put it under torment.” (Photo via Flickr)

“All right,” I said. “Let’s give it a try.” I went into the bathroom and I let that thing have it! (You can take the girl off the street but you can’t take all the street out of the girl.) I threatened him with everything I could think of. At the end of my tirade, there was silence in my mind. And then, God once again gave me the Scripture from Mark 5 about the demoniac that was dwelling among the tombs. Holy Spirit highlighted Legion running up to Jesus, throwing himself on his knees and saying, “…What have You to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? [What is there in common between us?] I solemnly implore you by God, do not begin to torment me!” (Mark 5:7 AMPC.) He didn’t want to be tormented! That’s why he shut his stinking mouth when I tormented him!

The voices came back pretty quickly, but now I knew what I was dealing with! I soon discovered that we have things in our soul that allow spirits to torment us. Instead of screaming at the enemy, we need to get our inner man healed of everything we have in common with the devil and then he will have no power over us!

Have Nothing in Common

Jesus made this clear in John 14:30 (AMPC). He said, “…the prince (evil genius, ruler) of the world is coming. And he has no claim on Me. [He has nothing in common with Me; there is nothing in Me that belongs to him, and he has no power over Me.].” The devil will not have any power over you, when you have nothing in you, that’s in common with him.

When you are born again, you don’t have anything in your spirit man that’s in common with the devil, because inside of you is Christ, the hope of glory. Your spirit man is perfect and has nothing in common with satan. But your soul is not the same. Your spirit man is saved, but your soul is in the process of receiving full salvation. The word “salvation” doesn’t just mean to receive eternal life. It also means healing. That Greek word is “sozo” meaning: “healing, to heal someone of a disease.”

You’ve got diseases in your soul. Remember in Philippians 2:12, we are told to walk out our salvation with fear and trembling? You don’t have to walk out your salvation in your spirit because it’s made perfect instantly, but you’ve got to walk out salvation in your soul, because your soul needs to be healed!

"A Prophetic Word and Assignment for Seniors and Retirees: ‘I’m Giving Some of You Unique Ministries’" Jennifer LeClaire, Fort Lauderdale, FL

On one of my mornings with the Holy Spirit prayer calls, the Lord gave me a profound, prophetic word. He said:

“I am raising you up in this hour to stand in companies and even to stand on the walls, for I have things I want you to see in the spirit. And, I even want you to watch. I want you to look and I want you to see.

“I want you to sound the alarm. I want you to gather intercessors round and about you who are serious about My business in this hour. For you have earned My trust by way of your walk. And, you have earned My trust by the way of your prayer. You have earned My trust by the way of your selflessness and your willingness to pour out.

“Rise Up and Gather”

“Rise up and gather. I’m pouring out a gathering anointing upon you, to even see your city changed through prayer, to even see your families and churches and those round about you, who have struggled, changed.

“I’m giving some of you unique ministries. Some of you will go into the prisons and the jails. Some of you will go into the hospitals and the nursing homes. Some of you will go into orphanages and other places where they teach children who have disabilities.

“I am putting feet to your prayers, so I’m asking you to pray but I’m also asking you to move. I’m asking you to shift and I’m asking you to think outside the box. For I will band you together and you will be a powerhouse force in My Spirit.

“It’s not about gathering all those who are your same age. No. Gather different age groups, gather young and old because you have something to deposit. I want you to make a deposit. I want you to make a deposit that will bear much interest in the next generation. I want you to teach them how to watch and how to pray.”

The Lord keeps showing me people of stature, people of greater eldership in the spirit standing on the wall and watching, watching, watching, watching. The Lord is going to give you certain ministries to watch over. There are seers among you who are going to rise up as seer guards over ministries. And, those ministries may or may not ever know that you’ve been stationed there, but you’re going to be faithful.

"Your Destiny Will Not Be Held Back by the Enemy!" Todd Bentley, Charlotte, NC

It’s Time to Awaken the Sleeping Giant

I saw, in an open-vision encounter during midday, an awakening angel dressed in the most beautiful, sapphire-blue garment and the most brilliant, white light (Zechariah 4:1). I heard, “It’s time to awaken the sleeping giant—the Church.”

“Arise, you sleeper! Rise up from the dead and the Anointed One will shine His light into you!” (Ephesians 5:14 TPT)

This angel of awakening was to wake up the sleeping Church to the reality that we can have as much of Heaven and Jesus as we want now—unlimited access. There is an invitation to step into the current moving and new sound of revival. There is a new season of revival, awakening, movement, and harvest upon us. We are at a tipping point for this new season of outpouring!

The Book of Destiny!

The angel I saw also had a book of destiny in his hand like a book of remembrance. The Lord was saying, “Put your name in this book,” and I realized the title of the book was called “Awakened Destinies”. Our destiny will not be held captive any longer by the enemy. There was destiny revealed with power for purpose released.

The Bowls are Almost Full!

The angel I saw was also had a measuring rod in the other hand. I realized that God was not measuring us based on how we did not measure up, but by how close we were to His standard! I immediately realized how close we were to seeing the bowls of prayer and intercession tip in favor of an outpouring that I saw as fresh, gold oil (see Revelation 8:1-4)! Why gold oil? The gold would come with the glory and it would purify.

The rod that I saw in my vision was not a rod of judgment or a negative plumb line, but more like a blessing rod or a scepter-type rod that was a symbol of favor and authority to rule. In my vision, I thought of Aaron’s rod that blossomed with almonds which represent fatness, fruitfulness, and anointing. I realized in the encounter with the awakening angel just how close the Church was to embracing the top of the scepter (rod) like Esther (see Esther 5:1-5).

I immediately thought of all the other Scriptures where there were examples of measuring rods or the plumb line. It can be a sign of coming into His divine order and alignment. It can also represent increase, like in Ezekiel 47, where the river of God that started ankle-deep became so deep that it could not be crossed by foot, but had to be swam across.

Again in Amos 7 we see God’s plumb line, and in Revelation 11:1-2 the angel was measuring three things with the measuring rod: the temple, altar, and those who worship there. God is measuring the standard of our worship and prayer. I knew that the fiery intensity of the way we pray and worship was directly connected to how God answered prayer to determine when we were ready to tip the golden bowls of intercession over in Heaven. When this happened, it led to a great release of power and revival (see Revelation 11:2-6; Revelation 8:1-4).

Fresh Oil!

Zechariah 4 and Revelation 21 are other examples of the measuring rod. I quickly realized how full the golden lampstands were already, and how in Zechariah 4:14 the lampstands and the oil represent the sons of fresh oil who are called “the anointed ones”.

I love the example in Ephesians 4:13 that says we are being filled with the fullness of God. We are being filled up with the full stature of Christ. God’s standard of measurement is the revelation of God Himself in us!

It was clear to me that there was an invitation to the nations to take hold of revival now. There was an invitation to take intentional steps forward because we were close to measuring full in prayer, hunger, and worship. God will respond and answer from Heaven when the golden bowls are full.

It is a tipping-point time! I saw how far the Church has come already in preparing the ground, and I saw the momentum achieved. If we could maintain the momentum and push a little bit harder, it would help us break through to fullness. We are ready for the unstoppable force and momentum of revival.

"A New Frontier in Space plus How God Will Use Women!" Charles Shamp, Nashville, TN

I heard the Lord say, “I will cause women to do uncommon things in this generation for My glory. They will be clothed with strength and dignity, they will laugh without fear of the future and freedom will be their portion across the world. They will break new records even in the race to go back to space.

A Sign from the Moon

For there will be a sign seen from the moon above, yes humans will once again stand on its surface. I will cause this to mark a great changing of seasons for all of humanity, an expansion of civilization and expansion of human life. This will mark the moment of great change. The sun knows its time for rising and setting and someday humanity will discover the sun’s power in order to harness greater dimensions of energy for the earth.

A great sign will appear in the heavens above; yes a woman clothed with the energy of the sun, the moon resting under her feet will be seen simultaneously throughout the world. The world will wonder at this sight of the first woman to step foot on the surface of the moon, a Wonder Woman. It will be a marvel and a sign to this generation of an acceleration of technology and life expansion.

A New Frontier from Above

In the spirit I could see a new frontier was about to come forth from above. A great new gold rush and the mining of asteroids for materials in space was about to begin. I could see vast amounts of wealth came to the earth as a result of the explorations.

I heard the Lord say, “I will go before them and make all the crooked places straight as they breakthrough to space. Things that could never be understood will suddenly come to light over night. I will break in pieces the gates of brass over their minds and cut asunder the bars of iron over their heads that have held humans to the earth for so long. I will give them the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places from above that they may know that I the Lord am God (see Isaiah 45:3).

I could also see down below, in the earth, new technology for generating electricity from plant’s photosynthesis coming forth to produce cleaner energy for the earth. Forests became energy stations of the future. Again I heard the Lord say, “These will be trees of life and the leaves of the tree will be for the healing of the nations.” (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"The Well That Will Never Run Dry" Darren Canning, Ontario, Canada

“The Well That Will Never Run Dry”

Darren Canning, Ontario, Canada

Jesus has breakthrough in store for your life. When you came to Christ you came to a place that was much different than where you once lived. You came to a place where all your limitations were destroyed. The chains that held you down were released by the power of the Blood of Jesus.

Taking Every Thought Captive

I have known the Lord for many years, but I am always amazed when He heals me so that I can be more fruitful. Recently I had a financial problem that was causing me some concern. The fear that came as a result was so strong that I could hardly think of anything else. Each time I thought of the situation I would see my children and my wife. A sadness would come over me as I thought of what would happen to them if I lost everything.

I didn’t see this as a problem at first. It was just a thought that came into my mind. We can have many thoughts like this – and we certainly do. We can be aware that these thoughts are there or we might not be aware of them. These thoughts, if left unchallenged, can destroy you. You need God’s light and His Word to wash over you. Every thought must become obedient to Christ.

2 Corinthians 10:5 says, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ…” When we have thoughts exalting themselves above Christ we are essentially believing something that is not from God. Isaiah 55:8 says, “‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,’ saith the LORD.” (Photo via Unsplash)

Thinking from God’s Perspective and Winning the Battle in Your Mind

His thoughts are the highest that you can have. There are no thoughts more powerful than God’s for your life, and His thoughts are refreshing.They release life and liberty. Thoughts that produce depression, fear and turmoil in your life do not come from God. You need to seek God and receive His word over your situation. When you do receive His word you will feel very different than you did before His word became a revelation. We need our thoughts transformed by the mind of Christ. Our thoughts need to be formed by Him. We cannot allow even one of our thoughts not to originate with Him. Each one of us has to fight this way daily.

The battleground of your life is in the area of the mind. God intends to win that battle but you must allow Him to win. Each time you recognize a thought that is causing pain and death in your life you must subject that thought to Christ and ask Him to transform it and He will! When God showed me that I had a fear that my family would be hurt because I would lose everything, He was highlighting this in order to make my life better. He didn’t want me to stay under that thought. He wanted me to rise above it, but first I had to be aware I was having that thought.

Drinking the Water that Will Truly Satisfy

During my past trip to Asia, I began to write down my thoughts regarding the situation. As I wrote down the fears I was having, I saw that I was afraid for my family and I asked God why I was afraid. He said, “It is linked to your grandfather.” My grandfather was a good man. When he was my age he ran a couple of successful businesses, but then he lost everything. He had 8 children. I have 7 children. Our lives are very similar. His children were negatively affected by his loss. I was afraid I would lose everything as well and my children would be affected the same way. I repented to the Lord for believing this lie and then He began transforming it.

I had a dream shortly after this and saw myself in Heaven. I was in a store. There were many beautiful things there. It was like a gift store for God’s children. I felt excited to be there. The atmosphere in that store was glorious and filled with wonder and bliss. I saw a gift. An angel was standing at the counter in that store and he had my gift. It was a well. It was a small pottery piece about 1 foot high that I knew was actually a well. (Photo via Unsplash)

I asked the Lord what it was and He said, “This is the well that never runs dry.”Jesus said to the woman at Jacob’s well, “If you had asked Me I would have give you water and you would never be thirsty again” (see John 4:10-14). He was referring to the waters of Heaven. Certainly every time we drink water we know we will need a drink again. But the water that we receive from the Father is so satisfying that it will change us the moment we drink it.

Revelation from the Father is much like that. When the Holy Spirit changes our thoughts, our old thoughts no longer cause dissatisfaction inside of us. We are no longer miserable and thirsty. Thirst represents dissatisfaction and a need to be filled. When we are thirsty we can actually experience pain. God’s Word so transforms us that thoughts once causing pain and dissatisfaction are destroyed and His new thoughts satisfy us. When we drink of the water and thoughts of Heaven we are no longer the same. We never encounter the old pain again. That is why we need to let Christ transform our thoughts daily because as we do we become more free.

So I pray for you today and ask God to renew your mind and your strength. I ask Him to give you a hope and a future. I ask Him to bring you to the well that never runs dry, the many thoughts of God which will bring lasting satisfaction. God bless you. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
