"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.)

The Lord gave Christine Vales a deep desire to serve and point others to Him just before the turn of the century. It has been a beautiful journey and she is still discovering the gifts He planted in her—to use them to serve others and bring glory to Him! 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.)

"God is Exposing Your Destiny!" Joe Joe Dawson, Texarkana, Texas

Seeing Clearly Through the Trees

Recently, I was in corporate prayer and received this word from the Lord. It was just one of those moments where the Lord dropped a strong word into my spirit and I believe it is going to help a lot of people.

The Lord showed me a vision, and in the vision I was standing in front of just a handful of trees. The trees were gently swaying in the wind. Through the trees I could just barely see a tiny glimpse of what I thought was my destiny and what was coming in the next season. As the trees moved back and forth, I could barely see through the leaves. But I could tell this was part of my destiny.

Then suddenly a gentle, strong breeze started to blow around me and it blew all of the leaves off of the trees. Then I could see clearly my destiny before me. There was such clarity that was setting right before me. I was amazed at how clear and close it all was.

Uncovering What was Once Hidden

Then the Lord spoke to me, “Destiny exposed.” My first thought was that the word “exposed” normally has a negative meaning. But then I looked up the true definition of exposed. Exposed means to make visible by uncovering something. Many times the connotation we have of the word “exposed” is when something someone has done wrong becomes exposed. But exposure is not always a bad thing.

The word “exposed” is a very powerful word. It means something that was once hidden becomes visible. So your destiny may have been mostly hidden in past seasons like in my vision with the trees, and you may have only been able to see glimpses of it before. But there is a suddenly moment coming where God will fully expose your destiny to you with great clarity.

The word “destiny” means invincible necessity. The word “invincible” means too powerful to be defeated. The word “necessity” means the fact of being required or indispensable. Your destiny is invincible and too powerful to be defeated! It must happen and it is about to be exposed right before you!

Vision for the Coming Future

Right after this I had another vision. In the vision I was inside of a house and I was looking out of a window. It was pouring rain outside and the window’s shutters kept opening and closing on the outside. When the shutters were open, I could see some of what was outside, but it was raining so hard that I couldn’t see very far. Then a gentle but strong breeze began to blow and it blew the shutters right off, and I could see more clearly out of the window. As I walked closer, the rain blew away. Now I could see very clearly. I could see from a long distance into a field, and at the end of the field there was a tree line and a barn. Everything that was once unclear, I could see very clearly now.

After this vision, I was seeking the Lord about what He was trying to reveal. He showed me that the purpose of the first vision was to tell people that there are many gazing strongly and trying to see glimpses of their future and God is about to fully expose people’s destinies. I do not feel that this will only be in July, but for the rest of this calendar year. I felt strongly since before the beginning of 2018, that the first six months of this year would be a set up for not just the last six months of the year, but for many months to come.

Many will be brought out of wilderness seasons where they have been in a cave, alone with God. Wilderness and cave seasons are important because those are the times when you develop a deep relationship with God, but when you come out, clarity comes. If you come out of a cave, even in the natural, you are able to see everything around you that you could not see before.

God is about to completely expose destiny to those who are looking to Him and the things of God. When the leaves were blown away I could see what was beyond the trees. When the shutters were blown off of the windows and the rain was blown away I could see what was outside for a long distance.

God is about to give such clarity to His people to be able to see down the road of their destinies for a long time. God is sustaining His people for longevity. I feel strongly that this exposure is coming in July, but that it is also coming in the many months ahead. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Lift Up Your Shield of Faith!" Chuck D. Pierce, Corinth, TX

Dear Shielded Ones:

The Lord brought forth this word on Sunday (July 1, 2018). Keith Pierce quoted Psalm 5:12, “For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield.” If there is one part of the armor that is the most important to understand, it is the shield of faith. The shield of faith quenches all the fiery darts of the enemy (Ephesians 6:16).

His Shield of Favor Surrounds Us!

Keith actually saw shields hanging over the top of God’s people. He began to shout: “Pull those shields down and let them surround you. May the shield of faith come into place so you press through into a new favor!”

One of the most important things a Christian can learn is the reality of spiritual warfare. When you were born again you were born onto a battlefield. Your choice is not whether you want to go to war, for war has been declared against you! Your only choice is whether you want to get trampled by the enemy, or learn to fight and win! At issue in this battle are the promises of God. Peter says that God has given us His “precious and magnificent promises” that through them we can become partakers of the divine nature (2 Peter 1:4).

God has given us promises that relate to every area of life. He has promised us abundant provision. He’s promised us healing. He has promised great blessings in every area. But when you open your Bible and begin to claim these promises, you discover you are in a battle! When you say, “I want to come into a new place in the Lord! I want to move forward to obtain the promise!” Satan will try to stop you. That’s what the battle is all about. Satan’s goal is to frighten and discourage you, to make you to turn back and not press on in the Lord. (Photo via Px Here)

As the apostle Paul thought about our struggle against satan, he realized that God has given us a shield like that. It is a shield of faith. When Paul talks about our shield in Ephesians 6:16, he uses the word for the Roman battle shield. The word is THUREOS and it means a “door-shaped shield.” (The Greek word for door is THURA.) The thureos was a large, rectangular shield about five feet high and three feet wide. It was also called a castle shield. If you were a warrior holding this shield in front of you, you carried your own portable fortress. You had a castle you could take with you wherever you went and be protected against the enemy.

It is interesting to study how this shield is made. The thureos was so large that, if made of solid wood or metal, it would have been difficult to carry. To construct a thureos the Romans began with a wooden framework. Over that framework they fastened seven layers of tough leather from the skin of a bull or a calf. They built up these layers until the shield was four or five inches thick and nailed them securely in place. As the soldiers got ready to go into battle they could dip the shield in a nearby river to saturate it with water so it would not only stop an arrow, it would quench the fire.

Many Christians think they are battling for their needs. They say, “I’m in a spiritual warfare to break through for financial provision! I’m warring in prayer for a new job …for salvation of a loved one …for physical healing …etc.” That is not what we are battling for! If you think you are in warfare for healing, finances, or any other need, you do not understand the battle! Our battle is not for any of those needs! Our battle is only for one thing and that is FAITH. The Word of God tells us that faith is the one essential. If you have faith, nothing is impossible, nothing is withheld. If you can get in faith and stay in faith, all the rest will come. All things are possible if you believe! So when you have a need for finances, health, or anything else, your battle is to find a way to stand in faith. Let me say that again: no matter what we need, if we can get in faith and stay in faith, EVERY need will be met. Our battle is to stay in faith!

Key Prophecy

“I have not provided you a shield for peacetime. Rather, the shield coming down over you will enable you to forge ahead. No arrow or weapon forged against you will prosper or penetrate through this shield of favor. When you reach up to grab this shield, you come into agreement and alignment with the portion of favor for this season that you didn’t need in the last one. Over nations, there are now shields of favor in alignment for God’s Kingdom people to battle in a way they have not previously battled. You war from the place of knowing that you have overcome, so put your shield of favor on with purpose and intent.Know that as the King of kings, I have established you as a weapon of favor in the midst of your enemies. Now clear the land with that favor.

“You’ve grown tired in your journey, but I have energy you know not of. I am ready to energize you while it’s still day, and you will rise up and see through the night ahead. There is supernatural energy for you to go up and go through the river. Some of you have gotten in the river and become waterlogged, but now there is energy for you to rise up and get to the other side. Get up out of the water and walk across it. I am loosing buoyant faith in My people! Get ready, for you’re about to move in ways you’ve never moved before. I am about to do something that unites My people in a supernatural way and that causes great shifts throughout the earth. (Photo via Flickr)

“You’ve been working covertly. In the covert working you’ve been doing, I have been training you in ways you’ve never been trained before. What was in the dark I am now bringing into the light. What you were gaining in the dark will now form keys as you move forward. No more will you be held back from entering in and bringing change into this land. This is a time that nations are realigning, and I am calling you up and calling you out. You will walk in change in days ahead and produce change where you walk.

“You have stayed in the lowlands until familiarity occurred. However, you looked again and saw the mountaintop one more time. You decided to leave the low place you were in, and climb and climb and climb again. I have called you to the mountain top, created a new cloud, and am addressing you by name. Determine to come up and exchange the lowlands for the high place. What was once a pit is becoming a palace. You will see clearly that it’s not how long it takes to journey up to the mountain, but your willingness to set your feet in motion and come up.” (Melinda Richardson, Chuck D.
