"Prepare for Victory! 2019 will Bring a Great Surge of Power and Momentum" Dutch Sheets, Colorado Springs, CO

I believe 2017-2018 will go down in history as “turning point years” for America. Certainly, there have been other crossroad seasons in our nation’s 240 years of existence: but these two years have been epochal. The exposing of the Deep State, certainly not complete but at least begun; the confrontation and interruption under the leadership of President Trump of the left’s mad dash to globalism, secularism and amoralism; halting the suicidal weakening of our military; the determination of millions of Americans to recapture our roots and our destiny; and the beginning of shifting control of America from government back to the people starting with the courts. All these events have made this season pivotal.

A Prophetic Warning from Jefferson

America’s judicial system has long been its Achilles heel. This shift alone could be instrumental in saving America. Thomas Jefferson warned of the dangers of an out-of-control judicial branch 200 years ago!

“The Constitution is a mere thing of wax in the hands judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please. It should be remembered, as an axiom of eternal truth in politics, that whatever power in any government is independent, is absolute also…”(A letter to Judge Spencer Roane, 1819). (Photo via Dutch Sheets)

“You seem to consider the judges as ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions, a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy…The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves…” (A letter to Mr. Jarris, 2810).

Jefferson’s warnings proved to be prophetic. A despot is a tyrant or oppressor with absolute, unlimited power. This certainly describes what has happened in our judiciary. Many left-leaning judges in America are trying to rule over and change our nation with their usurping and unconstitutional decrees.

Mercifully, the turning of the judiciary has begun. Thank God for the tenacity of President Trump and the Republican led Senate in this regard. The curse is being reversed.

Awakening and Reformation

America also entered a “new era” of spiritual awakening and reformation in 2017-2018. When speaking of these two spiritual breakthroughs, I always make a distinction between them; it is possible to have one without the other. When the Great Commission of Mark 16:15-18 is being fulfilled with great momentum—salvations, deliverances, healings, Holy Spirit baptisms, etc., we consider this an awakening or revival, as this saves, transforms and restores individuals.

On the other hand, when Matthew’s Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) is accomplished, discipling nations according to the teachings of Christ—this is reformation which saves, transforms and restores regions and nations.

In the Charismatic Movement of the 60s and 70s, millions were saved, healed and baptized in the Holy Spirit (awakening). YET, there was no discipling of our society and nation (reformation). The result of this failure, ironically, was a gain in salvations but a loss in Kingdom influence (the honoring of God and His ways declined in society). We actually regressed spiritually in every aspect of American life. It has always amazed me that a nation could experience one of the greatest outpourings of Holy Spirit in history, yet when all was said and done, we lost ground spiritually!

Thankfully, another great awakening has begun in America. And I have great hope that the coming season of revival will produce far different results. There are a growing number of Christians who believe the Church is Christ’s Kingdom government (Ekklesia) on Earth and, as such, has both the assignment AND ability to disciple nations according to His commission in Matthew’s Gospel. (Photo via Dutch Sheets)

Influencing the Seven Mountains

This current emphasis by Holy Spirit on influencing the 7 mountains of society (Family, Religion, Arts and Entertainment, Government, Business, Education and Media) is an example. This teaching, first taught in the 70s by Bill Bright of Campus Crusade For Christ and Loren Cunningham of Youth With A Mission, did not gain any real momentum at the time. Believers simply did not have the faith or frankly, the theology necessary to embrace such a radical concept. Thankfully, this has changed and many now embrace the teaching.

The importance of this understanding cannot be exaggerated. It will fully restore America’s purpose and destiny, not only as an international voice of the Gospel (Mark’s commission), but also as a discipling light to the nations (Matthew’s commission).

As we enter 2019, prepare yourself for an even greater surge of spiritual power and momentum. The best days of the Church and of America are not in our past—they are in our future.

Be encouraged…and prepare for victory! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"The Angel Gabriel Prepares the Way – Will You Come?" Pete Garza, Stryker, OH

Preparing the Father’s Table

Recently I was in London, England, waiting to catch a flight back to the United States. At approximately 3:30 a.m. I was taken into Heaven and saw myself standing next to this large, long table. At first glance of this table, I could feel all my senses and emotions being increased. I could feel joy, love, compassion and family. It was majestic. As far as I could see, there were chairs and a never ending table…the Father’s table. I was simply mesmerized by what I was seeing.

Then instantly as I was standing by the Father’s table, out of know where appears a man. In this encounter, I could feel such a sense of urgency and authority that this man was carrying. There was a heavy presence of reverence and respect, and all I wanted to do was sit and watch him. This man was dressed sharp and pristine, wearing all white work pants and a white long sleeve shirt. It was clear that he was focused on a task at hand. He was walking back and forth multiple times around the Father’s table. As I started to look closely, I began to see this man pulling beautiful gold plates from the air. These plates would supernaturally appear as he pulled them from the air above him.

Still mesmerized by what I was seeing, I asked him, “Who are you and what are you doing?” This man paused and looked directly at me and replied, “I’m Gabriel and I’m on assignment!” He went on to say that he was preparing the Father’s table for the Bride. Right after He spoke this, I was immediately taken out of the encounter.

Gabriel: God’s Trusted Messenger

We know from Scripture that the angel Gabriel is a messenger who was entrusted to deliver several important messages on God’s behalf.

Daniel 8: 17, “As Gabriel approached the place where I was standing, I became so terrified that I fell with my face to the ground. ‘Son of man,’ he said, ‘you must understand that the events you have seen in your vision relate to the time of the end.'”

Gabriel foretells the birth of John the Baptist: Luke 1:11-13, “While Zechariah was in the sanctuary, an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing to the right of the incense altar. Zechariah was shaken and overwhelmed with fear when he saw him. But the angel said, ‘Don’t be afraid, Zechariah! God has heard your prayer. Your wife, Elizabeth, will give you a son, and you are to name him John.'”

Gabriel foretells the birth of Jesus: Luke 1:26-32, “In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee, to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David. Gabriel appeared to her and said, ‘Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!’ Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. ‘Don’t be afraid, Mary,’ the angel told her, ‘for you have found favor with God! You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name Him Jesus. He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His ancestor David.'”

It’s Time for the Supernatural to Manifest in Our Lives

There were many things that really stood out to me in this encounter with Gabriel. You see, Gabriel has come to deliver a message to the Bride. It’s time for the supernatural things to begin to manifest in our lives. You see, Gabriel was supernaturally manifesting the gold plates from thin air, which speaks of the season of supernatural favor. God is preparing the banquet table for the Bride to feast on. This is an invitation to the Father’s table of full provision and manna.

Gabriel has always been a personal messenger for the Father. God has entrusted him to deliver this message to you and me, the Bride. While God has called His heavenly messengers to work on His behalf, He has also called angels to work in our lives in very profound ways. Gabriel is an incredible example of this. God loves us so much that He sends His angels to guard, guide, and protect us through various stages of our life.

Although we may not immediately see the angels are around us, they are there at God’s direction and working to assist us in this life and the next. These are the angels on assignments! Gabriel is now on assignment on behalf of the Bride, preparing the way and assisting the Father in setting your place at the Father’s table. This is an open invitation for to encounter the greater glory and to sit with the Father at His table. Will you come to the table today? (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"The Prophetic Power of Proclamation" James W. Goll, Franklin, TN

As watchmen and prophetic intercessors, our assignment is to scan the horizon for potential dangers, loudly and clearly, proclaiming the authority of God. This was brought home forcefully to me one day when I was alone, waiting quietly upon the Lord. The voice of the Holy Spirit came to me saying, “It is time to make a worldwide impact by calling forth the watchmen to the prophetic power of proclamation.”

“The prophetic power of proclamation”: for me this was like the final piece of a puzzle, and from that point forward I began ministering out of a higher vision.

Watchmen on the Walls

The picture was clear to me, because I had seen it in the book of Isaiah: “On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; all day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves; and give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.”(Isaiah 62:6-7)

To state the obvious – if we are on top of the walls being watchmen, we are not down on the ground observing and participating in whatever is happening on a horizontal plane. We are to remain up high at our posts because that is the only way to get an overview. As watchman intercessors, the height of our revelation will determine our perspective.

If as watchmen on the walls we are to never be silent day or night, what are we to say while we are up there? We are to remind God of His Word – the promises and proclamations of Scripture as well as the promises currently in the Father’s heart today. It is as though we have been issued megaphones in order to echo God’s Word to the world around us.

There is more than one way to dismantle the darkness around us. We don’t always need to fire arrows or use weapons. More often, we can proclaim God’s blessings, which supplant the curses afflicting the people and territory we have been charged to watch over. Blessings and praises proclaimed wholeheartedly often break the power of a curse better than rebuking it directly. “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse” (Romans 12:14). The power of a blessing is greater than the power of a curse. (Photo via James Goll)

As watchmen on the walls, our job is to pray God’s promises, praise Him with our whole hearts, and release proclamations of prophetic blessings. As we do so, we will grow increasingly secure in our identities as sons and daughters of the Father. This increased security keeps us from ambitious and self-serving efforts to do prayer “exploits” while producing results that surprise us with joy.

Healing in Bangkok

Let me give you a clear example of how this works. Once I was ministering in Bangkok, Thailand, where due to the predominance of Buddhism, literal curses abound. In a series of teachings, through a translator, I rather methodically presented the causes and cures for curses. I pointed out that Jesus addressed demons directly in the course of His ministry, and the material I taught was well received.

But when the subsequent ministry time finally came, I did not follow a typical approach of individualized personal ministry. Through a series of dreams beforehand, the Holy Spirit had shown me a different way. I started releasing the opposite spirit, the spirit of blessing, over the assembled crowd. In this situation, no one laid hands on anyone else. I led the people in corporate declarations of blessings and the faith level began to rise. Everyone was eagerly participating together! The afternoon session ended with an expectation that more would come during the evening session.

That evening during worship, a lady started dancing her way across the front. I did not know what was so special about that, but people were really reacting in surprise and excitement. I turned to my interpreter and asked, “What is happening?” He said, “Oh, don’t you know?” He then explained to me that this woman had been in the meeting earlier that day. She had come in a wheelchair because her entire right side was paralyzed. Apparently she had been going from doctor to doctor, but no one had been able to help her. She was ready to have one more MRI the following week, but she was facing a life of major paralysis.

Freedom! That afternoon, with no one laying hands on her, she had confessed and renounced some generational sins as I had instructed, and when I started releasing the power of the blessing, she got struck by a “lightning bolt” of Holy Spirit power and was healed in an instant. That night she was offering thanks to God – doing what she was not able to do before. She was healed!

We may not always see such dramatic results, but if the proclamation of God’s Word of blessing is strong enough to heal paralysis, it is definitely strong enough to heal whatever else might be out of order.

Proclaim for All to Hear

We do not use the words proclaim or proclamation often in our ordinary speech. We prefer synonymous words such as announce, publish, invite or declare. Let’s revive proclamation as one of our best ways to give expression to prophetic intercession. Let’s cry out, pronounce, herald, and even decree. We speak on behalf of the King, do we not? As His own sons and daughters, we can proclaim God’s truth with joyful confidence in any situation.

Consider a few Scriptures of proclamation:

“I will proclaim the name of the Lord. Oh, praise the greatness of our God! He is the Rock, His works are perfect, and all His ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is He.” (Deuteronomy 32:3-4 NIV)

“You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways.” (Job 22:28 NASB) (Photo via James Goll)

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion – to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.” (Isaiah 61:1-3 NIV)

“What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops.” (Matthew 10:27 NASB)

Proclaim and Decree

Instead of only praying problems, begin to proclaim solutions. Each time you and I proclaim the power of God over our lives and the lives of the people around us, the Holy Spirit’s words to me come to fruition: “It is time to make a worldwide impact by calling forth the watchmen to the prophetic power of proclamation.”

Let’s make full use of the power of proclamation. Let’s decree things and see them established. Let’s fill our mouths with vigorous words of praise – and we will see whole cities transformed for the glory of God! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"2019: A New Day of Destiny! Your Barren Winter is Over" Elaine Tavolacci, Staten Island, NY

As I began writing this word for 2019, the Lord brought this Scripture to me from 1 Corinthians 2:9: “But as it is written: Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

We are coming into a year where we are going to experience many God surprises. God is going to intervene in things that we could not accomplish in our own strength.

Change is in the Air

2018 has been an extremely difficult year for many people. I received numerous prayer requests for healing, financial difficulties, turmoil in families, and problems in ministries. On a recent afternoon after reading in Song of Solomon, I saw a picture that my friend posted on Facebook. In this picture she was wearing two watches. She jokingly asked, “Does anyone know what this means prophetically?” She has been through so much trauma in her life and especially the past year—losing loved ones and battling sickness and attacks on her ministry. When I looked at that picture, the Lord told me to send her these Scriptures from Song of Solomon 2:11-13 in The Passion Translation:

“The season has changed, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone. The rains have soaked the earth and left it bright with blossoming flowers. The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth. Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, ‘There is change in the air.’ Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to the higher place. For now is the time to arise and come away with me.”

The Bondage of Your Barren Winter is Coming to an End

As I was writing this to my friend, the Holy Spirit told me to release this word for the Body of Christ for 2019. For many of you who have been going through challenging trials this past year, the bondage of your barren winter is coming to an end. A new day of destiny will burst forth as Jesus is calling you to run into the new level that He has for you. He is restoring life and new growth to the areas that have been desolate and appear to be dead.

Some of you have been through a pruning process and it hasn’t been pleasant. In order to promote new growth, some things must be removed from your life that are not bearing fruit. The Lord has also removed some people from your life so that He could bring you to this higher place and fulfill His plans for your life and ministry.

The Holy Spirit is releasing a heightened sense of discernment in the coming year. It is not a natural discernment, but you will know things by the Spirit. Some of you are going to begin having vivid dreams. As you seek Him for the interpretation, He will reveal to you the meaning of the symbolism and metaphors of the dreams according to His Word. There will be directional dreams as well as warning dreams. Through these dreams He will release the mysteries and secrets of His Kingdom and you will learn to recognize His voice and acknowledge His majesty.

The Importance of Keeping Your Heart Pure

Then the Lord gave me this Scripture from Joshua 3:5, “And Joshua said to the people, ‘Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.'”

It is important that we keep our hearts pure because God cannot release His glory or share His secrets with someone with a sinful or calloused heart. Don’t allow the enemy to plant seeds of bitterness or create thorny areas in your heart. A defiled heart will not perceive things in the light of God but will misconstrue the truth about others. Be careful what you hear. If you constantly listen to the deception of liars or talebearers, you will also get distorted images about other people. As we come before Him with clean hands and a pure heart, He will be begin to flow through us unhindered. As you open up the gates of your heart, the King of glory will come in.

2019: A Time of Walking in His Authority

2019 will be a time of walking in the authority of Jesus and demonstrating His Kingdom on the earth. Jesus is about to release His glory to a barren and desperate generation. He is looking for those who are not afraid to go into the enemy’s camp and places where others fear to go. He is looking for those who are radical and have no hidden agendas but to do God’s will. They have been chosen to deliver others from the very things that they were set free from, and nothing will derail them from their mission. As we submit to the Lord in the secret place, we will see an open display and experience the demonstration of the power of God in our lives and ministries.

Daniel 2:22, “He reveals profound mysteries beyond man’s understanding. He knows all hidden things, for He is light, and darkness is no obstacle to Him.”

Job 12:22, “He uncovers the deeps out of darkness and brings deep darkness to light.” (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Kingdom Keys to Unlock Closed Doors This December" Emily-Rose Lewis, Charlotte, NC

Radical giving this month will pave a golden path into the New Year by raising profound expectations on the storehouse of Heaven to provide an overabundance of Kingdom provision in 2019. If you have been seeking keys to open doors that were locked in 2018, take heed of this word from the Lord.

If you have asked, knocked and sought the Lord, and wondered why the doors that led to the places He had promised to take you in 2018 have remained shut to you, there are simple principles, keys in His Word, that you may have overlooked. If you had hoped to be given a supernatural revelation that would swing open the doors of destiny that have been formerly sealed to you, but ignored the key principles that our Lord laid out as a road map for His heirs to activate His power and provision in their lives, then December is the month for you to turn things around and get set on the path to victory for 2019.

Want greater faith? Ask for the gift of faith, and grow your faith fruit.

December is a pivotal month for the shifting of perspectives, and a transitional month for personal preparation in order to position you for promotion, provision and purposed progression in 2019.

We Posses Instructions on How to Power Up Under Pressure

God has not left His remnant without clear instructions on how to power up under the pressures of life while continuing to produce the fruitful goods.

God has written the program of life in concise code, a bug-free code that does not crash or catch the same viruses as those who are operating their lives on a program written in faulty code. God has designed specific inputs that will 100% of the time create specific outputs. Righteousness, peace, and joy and all else that is needed to live a victorious life in the Holy Spirit are for all of those who seek first the Kingdom and the righteousness of God.

“But be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, THIS ONE WILL BE BLESSED IN WHAT HE DOES.” (James 1:22-25 emphasis mine)

Greater Cultivation Brings Greater Balance

Those who have been pressing in with the Lord in 2018, sowing generously of their time, talent, tenderness and treasure, while only seeing small movement and growth in 2018, will be going into 2019 with an unprecedented momentum for their purposes’ fulfillment. Many people have been cultivating some of the various fields of their lives: work fields, mission fields, family fields, community fields, financial fields, health fields, and so forth. For these people, 2019 will be a year of the various fields of their lives coming into a greater degree of balance. The addition of Heaven’s resources that had been closed in 2018 will be opening up in 2019. (Photo via Unsplash)

The scales of justice have been weighed in the courts of Heaven, and things are tipping in favor of mass production and growth in the lives of those who, by persistence and diligence, have applied Kingdom principles, found in the Word of God, to their lives. Those people who are walking by faith, in obedience, should be expectant entering into 2019 for God to bring balance and justice.

Give into the Work of the Kingdom

There is a powerful anointing on the month of December for giving as the Church around the world celebrates the greatest gift that was ever given. The spirit of giving will flood the hearts and homes of God’s children. Be careful not to just have a limited “me and mine” type mentality to giving. Even the world gives to those they are in close relationships with!

December has a seed faith anointing on it to give into the work of the Kingdom of God being spread. As you give into the lives and ministries of those anointed to spread the Kingdom in your lives and the lives of others—your seeds of time, talent, tenderness, and treasure—you plant seed for the Kingdom of God to be expanded through your lives in a major way as well. When you sow into helping God’s plans succeed in the lives of others, you will reap a harvest of God’s plan, succeeding in your life as well.

Righteousness, peace, and joy and all else that is needed to live a victorious life in the Holy Spirit are for all of those who seek first the Kingdom and the righteousness of God.

Giving on a scale that requires great faith, activates the great faith that will be needed to receive the great expectations you have on 2019. If you want to see the Lord bring a mighty harvest in your life in 2019, sow generously and courageously; sow obediently.

“Make no mistake about it, God will never be mocked! For what you plant will always be the very thing you harvest.” (Galatians 6:7 TPT)

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38)

Set Realistic Goals and Plan with Joyful Vigor

As we enter the new year, those who are wise will lay out specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-oriented goals for the year 2019. The wishful thinkers who refuse to plan and prepare need not be surprised when their good intentions are carried away like chaff on the wind day after day, week after week and month after month, with little or no produce to show at the end of 2019 for their good intentions.

Co-create with God by planning with joyful vigor and planting with great courage in December 2018, and watch how the Kingdom of God expands like yeast in and through your lives in 2019. “Commit your works to the LORD, and your plans will be achieved” (Proverbs 16:3).

Are You Believing for Miracles?

Are you believing for miracles to happen in and through your life? I mean trulybelieving?

Kingdom people should walk every day with the expectation of miracle-working power creating bridges, unlocking doors, pouring out provision, restoring what is lost, healing what is wounded, and mending what is broken.

When you have faith for the impossible to enable you to do God’s will, you live with peace and joy. With miracle working-faith, radical giving is the norm. When you believe God is who He says He is, and will do what He says He will do, you aren’t holding back your affection based on the perception that your needs aren’t being met. You won’t hoard your finances out of fear of future lack. You won’t settle in with mediocrity, and you won’t go around endlessly mourning over what has been lost.

Stir Up Your Faith—It’s Time to Go All in!

Stir up your faith in God to come through for you in peculiar ways! Release your need to control, and set aside your human preferences, realizing that God knows you better than you know yourself, and He knows exactly what is needed in any given situation to bring about His greatest glory and your greatest good.

Expand your capacity to receive by expecting radical obedience to produce radical results. Stop fiddling around on the sidelines of life out of fear of deep surrender; go all in. Give God your very best, not just what is left over, or what you can give without involving miracle-working faith. If you are one of God’s surrendered ones, expect miracles every single day. The only thing that is standing between you and your supernatural breakthrough is a lack of faith. Want greater faith? Ask for the gift of faith, and grow your faith fruit.Miracle-working faith grows in the good soil of a heart that is radically surrendered, consistently obedient, and that gives selflessly.

"Double Rainbows and Double Restoration" Kim Potter, Dayton, TN

Double Rainbows in the Dark

This week as I was praying about some things, I was reminded of a dream I had a couple years ago. In my dream I was riding in a vehicle with a friend of mine. She began to drive erratically. I said, “Listen, just pull over and let me out. I don’t want to ride with you driving like this.” This was odd to me because I have been in a vehicle with this person many times and I have always thought she was one of the best drivers I know.

As the dream continued, I looked around me and saw it was pitch dark, darkness was all around me. There were creepy things on the road. It looked like I was going through an evil place. There were Halloween signs everywhere and creepy things hanging from trees. It was weird, to say the least. Suddenly, something caught my eye. Out of the left side of my vision I saw a rainbow begin to form. I exclaimed, “LOOK AT THAT!” I watched as this rainbow literally formed across the sky, filling the sky with glorious colors. I stood there stunned, watching the rainbow form from the very beginning of it to the complete end of it. It was a marvelous sight.

I looked away to tell someone to look at it, and when I looked back there were two rainbows across the sky. Suddenly I saw a double rainbow filling the sky that had just moments before been utter darkness. It was absolutely stunning. I said to myself, “Wow, I haven’t seen a rainbow in years.” I woke up.

Glory That Outshines the Darkest of Times

Upon waking, I knew God was speaking to me and I knew He was telling me that even in the darkest times, His covenant remains in place. In the darkest places of our lives we will find that His covenant promises shine brighter than any darkness possibly could.

Isaiah 60:2 says, “For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.”

I don’t know about you, but that is good news to me. I see the dark getting darker in our earth, however, I also know the Word of God and it says when dark times become darker, His glory will be seen on us. His glory will absolutely outshine the darkness!

He is the Beginning and the End and His Promises are Yes and Amen

As I thought on this dream, several Scriptures flooded my mind. I meditated on how I saw the rainbow form from the beginning to the end. I asked God what He was saying to me and He gave me a couple Scriptures. First of all, Revelation 1:8, “‘I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,’ says the Lord, ‘who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.'” And, He gave me 2 Corinthians 1:20, “For all the promises of God in Him are yes, and in Him amen, to the glory of God through us.”

God is God from the beginning to the end and His promises are always yes and amen. When God speaks a word to us or when we grab on to the promises of God, we may experience some dark times in the process of seeing those promises come to pass. However, His covenant remains intact. His promises do not change. His glory WILL be revealed in us if we hold fast to the words He has given us.

A Token of God’s Covenant

As for what He was saying through the rainbows, to me it was quite clear. Allow me to remind you of a couple Scriptures concerning His rainbows and His promise.

Genesis 9:13-16, “I do set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between Me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.”

Friends, this vivid dream from God was an awesome reminder that our God has a covenant with us, and not only with us, but with every living thing on this earth and with the earth itself. God does not alter His promises. Psalm 89:34 says, “My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.”

Double Restoration

Finally, He spoke to me of the double rainbows and led me to some Scriptures that I just love!

Isaiah 61:7, “Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore, in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be theirs.”

Zechariah 9:12, “Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.”

Oh, my goodness, our God is speaking to us today. Those of you who still have hope, who are literal prisoners of hope; those of you who refuse to give up hope, in spite of the dark season you have walked through, to you, God will restore double! Praise the Lord. It is His promise to you and He will not alter that promise. Get ready for the double restoration!

Being reminded of this dream was so encouraging to me. I hope it is to you as well.
Remember, make sure you are “riding” the journey with the right person, in the right vehicle and then don’t allow the darkness to overcome you. Instead, look up! His covenant promises remain intact and they are yes and amen. He is true to His Word. He will not fail you. You, prisoners of hope, the double is on its way!

"Faith Made It Logical – Complete Trust in God" Crystal G.H. Lowery, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

Hebrews 11:19 (TPT), “Abraham’s faith made it logical to him that God could raise Isaac from the dead, and symbolically, that’s exactly what happened.”

Knowing the Voice of God

We need to start thinking differently. When we define our methods by the world’s standards, we taint our ability to see clearly through eyes of faith. What we put into our minds is what grows. What we put into our hearts and souls is what will begin to flourish. In some ways, there is nothing necessarily wrong about some methods or strategies that the world presents, but it is imperative that we don’t start from that point. We must start from the foundation of knowing the voice of God. This is such a key to anything in life.

When we typically think about faith, usually people get the idea that it will all go against normal or worldly logic. We think that God will have us step out in faith and do something that seems so crazy. However, what I am trying to emphasize is that if we have transformed our thought life, then whatever God tells us to do is normal. That is the starting point. We don’t begin from twisted thinking. We begin from God Himself – Truth and Purity, Himself. There is no way that can be illogical.

How We Please God

Hebrews 11:6 (TPT) says, “And without faith living within us it would be impossible to please God. For we come to God in faith knowing that He is real and that He rewards the faith of those who give all their passion and strength into seeking Him.”

In order to please God, we must have faith in Him. Believing and trusting in Him is crucial. How can we have a relationship with someone without trusting them? We must have faith in order to have a healthy relationship, otherwise there are broken dynamics working in the relationship. For example, how can you have a healthy marriage if one person doesn’t trust the other person? In order for the marriage to work you absolutely have to have trust.

The same is true with our relationship with God. We must put our faith in Him alone. If we don’t put 100% of our faith in Him, then we are not fully trusting Him. What He says is truth. He is not a man that He could ever lie, so His words are absolute truth. We can take them to the bank. God is the Creator of us. He knows how we work. He knows what we need. He knows everything we will ever need. He knows everything about us. Just like a manufacturer creates a product and has an instruction manual, God knows how to make us work just perfectly.

The Father of Faith

When I think about Abraham and his journey of faith, there are so many things that stand out to me. Abraham is called the Father of our faith. Looking at his life and examining his faith should be something that we all do if we want to better understand the concept of faith and making it a reality.

Put yourself in Abraham’s shoes (or sandals). He left his homeland to go to a Promised Land. He didn’t know where he was going, but he went. God told him he was going to be the father of many nations. He had a picture of his descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. The number of descendants promised to Abraham is staggering. HOWEVER, he was old and Sarah was old. Sarah was too old to have children and they had NONE. Abraham waited decades for even one child. During all this waiting he went from being old to being really old. Do you get the picture? Abraham was a real man, not just a character from a story.

Finally, Abraham and Sarah receive the promise of a son – Isaac. It is through Isaac that these descendants will come. Isaac is the prize. He is the gift. He is the initial part of the promise. He is crucial to having descendants.

Committed in Trust

But…God told Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. What? How can this be? Isaac was the promised child. How can there be descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore if Isaac is sacrificed (human logic would say)? Isaac didn’t have any children of his own yet. Could Abraham and Sarah have more children? These are strategies that would start to brew in the human mind.

The amazing thing is is that Abraham obeyed. He was WILLING to obey. If we can stay away from letting the story be so familiar to us that we don’t think about Abraham’s humanity, we will gain insight here! Abraham was just a man. Yet, in the face of what seemed to take away the promise, he STILL obeyed. This is the point in the story where a majority of people would have fallen off the cliff of faith. But faith is faith. Abraham was committed. He had settled the issue of trusting God. He knew God was his source of everything. This is powerful!

His Timing is Perfect

As Abraham was ready to bring the ax down on Isaac, a ram appeared just at the right MOMENT! God’s timing is always perfect. Allowing our faith in God to work with God’s perfect timing creates immaculate circumstances. We know that the ram was then used as the sacrifice and Isaac was not killed on the alter. If Abraham had received advice from his friends, I can only imagine what advice he would have heard. If Abraham had received the advice of the professionals of that day, I can almost tell you it would have been contrary to obeying God. All of the advice from Abraham’s friends and circle of advisors would have been what the world would have called “good advice” from caring friends and professionals who meant no harm but were just advising from a different starting point. That advice would not have been founded on knowing the voice of God.

Trading the World’s Baseline for God’s Lifeline

Psalm 101:6 (TPT) says, “My innermost circle will only be those whom I know are pure and godly. They will be the only ones I allow to minister to me.” If we have the desire to get advice from other people, we should be making absolutely sure they are pure and godly. Even then, we need to go back to knowing the voice of God. That is our baseline. That is our lifeline.

So, Abraham knew God’s voice. He trusted God absolutely. Abraham had transformed his thoughts by a lifetime of being with God, trusting God, and living by faith. He pushed aside the world’s baseline for what is logical and ushered in obeying the voice of God as the gold standard for what is logical. You can’t have faith in just anything or anyone. The faith I am speaking of is absolute faith in God.

When we absolutely commit ourselves to LIVING BY FAITH in God alone, we transform our thoughts. When we pour the Word and voice of God into our lives, they will flourish and grow. Faith becomes the logical thing when it is the thing that is continually sown into our lives and grows. Faith becomes the lifeline to the promises – the only way to do it! When this is the garden of our lives, then we can say, “FAITH MADE IT LOGICAL.” (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
