PROPHETIC WORDS
DECEMBER 2019

SURROUNDED BY HIS GLORY

 

There are times when I like to share prophecies that I received myself because I feel that they are relevant to others. This afternoon I was listening to several recordings of prophetic words that I received ten to twenty years ago. Many of the words were referring to dreams, visions and writing. There was one that I received in 2008 from a prophet who resides in Delaware. One of the things that he said to me was that he was watching me dreaming and saw me stepping into a cloud, and the glory of God hit me. As I was listening to the CD I felt that same anointing that I did when he spoke that word over me. He then said; The Lord is going to give you a visitation of revelation, and you are going to begin to dream the dreams of heaven, so get ready because God is going to rock your world with His glory.

The glory of the Lord is also about to visit some of you in a phenomenal way. In the book of John chapter 17 when Jesus was praying to the father He said, "The glory which You have given Me, I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one." Jesus is about to reveal His glory as He brings many of us into extraordinary encounters with Him. He is looking for those who He could entrust with His anointing. He wants to share His thoughts with those whose hearts are aligned with His. His revelation will come to those who are pursuing Him.
 
There are those of you who have searched for the hidden treasure in the field. He is about to reward those of you who sold everything to buy the field just to receive that treasure. He is going to reward and reveal profound and hidden things to those of you who gave everything that you had for the pearl of great price. He is going to reward those who have set aside your own agendas for Kingdom purposes. He will place His anointing on you which will be evident to many.
 
Just as Moses' face shown with the radiance of His glory, those who look upon you will also see the glory of His presence upon you. His glory will come through a relationship of intimacy. There is a greater glory and a new empowerment available that you have not known before. He is releasing a new level of discernment to those of you who have hidden His word in your hearts. Make yourself available to receive all that Jesus has for you in this time of transformation and impartation. You have an anointing from the Holy one and know all things. You have been chosen as carriers of His presence to release the atmosphere of heaven wherever you go.

 
Zechariah 2:5
For I,’ says the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.’ ”
 
John 17:22-23 
And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.
 
1 John 2:20 
But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.

YOUR RELEASE DATE IS IMMINENT



The past year has been a difficult year for many people, and some of you felt as if you had been a POW (Prisoner of War). A "prisoner" is someone who has been confined or imprisoned for something that they did illegally or immorally, but on the other hand, a "prisoner of war" or a "captive" is someone who has been wrongfully imprisoned. They may have been imprisoned during or immediately after an armed conflict. The Holy Spirit is about to release those of you who have been wrongfully imprisoned and taken captive by satan and his cohorts in spiritual warfare.

In the book of Acts there are two different incidents when God opened the prison doors to release His people who were wrongfully imprisoned. In Acts chapter five, there were many signs and wonders performed through the hands of the apostles. The sick were healed, demons were cast out and people even received healing through Peter's shadow. There was a great revival and multitudes accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The high priest and religious leaders put the apostles in prison, but the angel of the Lord went to them and released them saying: "Go, stand in the temple courts, and tell the people all about this new life."

In the book of Acts chapter sixteen Paul and Silas were wrongfully put in prison after they cast an evil out of a slave girl who was a fortuneteller. She continually followed them and mocked them until Paul finally turned around and cast the demon out of her in the name of Jesus. Her masters were angry because she was set free and they would now lose their income. The magistrates came and beat them with rods, shackled them and put them in prison. At midnight as Paul and Silas were praying and worshiping there was a great earthquake and their shackles were loosed. The jail keeper fell down before them trembling and asked, "What must I do to be saved?" They replied, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household." The next day the keeper of the prison said to Paul, "The magistrates have said to let you go: now therefore depart, and go in peace."

The Lord says to those of you who have been wrongfully imprisoned by the enemy, I now release you. Your prison sentence has ended and you are free to go. Allow Me to set you free from the prison of fear that has been tormenting your mind, deliver you from the prison of addictions that you have been battling, and set you free from the hidden sins that are troubling you. Allow Me to break those chains that have held you captive. Allow Me to remove those shackles that have kept you bound. You no longer have to live with the shame and the hidden agendas that you have kept in secret. I am releasing you from the strongholds that have led your life in disarray for so long. I have come to set the captives free.

I come to tear down the strongholds in your mind where you have thoughts of confusion that are holding you in bondage. Allow Me to cleanse and restore your way of thinking so that you will no longer have to live with thoughts of revenge, anger and unforgiveness. As you release others, you will be released. Do not harbor bitterness in your heart as this will also keep you imprisoned. Allow Me to release you of every hindrance and every stronghold in your life. I will break every chain of enslavement and the anchors that have been keeping you from prevailing.

Allow me to release you from the prison of sickness and disease. Do not accept that report which the doctors call incurable or terminal. Receive your healing from every ailment and every infirmity. Receive healing for every organ, every bone, every nerve, every tissue and every cell in your body. I am opening the prison doors and releasing the prisoners of war who have been battling unrelenting warfare. I am calling you to come to a higher place and receive the abundant life that I have provided for you says the Lord. .


John 8:36
Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
 
Acts 5:18-20
They laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison. But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, "Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life."
 
Acts 16: 23-26
And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone's chains were loosed.

RAPID RIVER 2020
 


As the New Year approaches and we look back over our previous years, we should see a substantial growth in our spiritual lives and our walk with the Lord. We should notice a change in our conduct, in our words, in our prayers and in our revelation. I am not talking about religious rules or regulations but I’m talking about our personal relationship with Jesus and setting ourselves apart for encounters with the God of Creation.

As I began writing this, the Holy Spirit brought me in a totally different direction than what I was planning on writing. He brought me back to a time in the 1990’s when I was at the Delaware water gap with a friend in a small row boat. I remember seeing an eagle for the first time as we glided along the water. I remember the fish in the shallow parts of the stream. Within one hour of rowing, the water went from being calm to turbulent and rapid.

Rapids are sections of a river where the river bed has a steep gradient which causes an increase in water velocity and turbulence. Rapids are hydrological features between a smooth flowing part of the stream and a cascade or waterfall. 

The Lord has been showing me that we are about to experience rapid growth and velocity in the Spirit. This is the reason why many of us have been experiencing so much turbulence in the spirit realm. Spiritual conflicts usually occur when we are advancing into new territory. We are coming in to a new surge of His glory with rapid growth and velocity.

The Lord says; My glory will come as a rapid river. You will experience supernatural occurrences at an accelerated speed in the months ahead and it will gradually pick up momentum. There will be many streams flowing into this river causing the waters to be rapid. Everywhere that this river flows will bring healing. Everywhere that this river flows will bring life. Everywhere that the river flows will bring provision.

Do not fear the high tides or the turbulent waters in this time of great acceleration. The rip tides will strain out all the debris and the profane. The media may be saying “batten down the hatches”, but I say; get ready for a glorious ride. I am about to drain the swamp of religious traditions. You will find that the glory of this latter house will be greater than the former house and in this place I will bring peace; says the Lord.
 
 
Isaiah 55:1
“Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; and you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Ezekiel 47:9
And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever [c]the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes.

Revelation 22:1 (TPT)
Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, flowing with water clear as crystal, continuously pouring out from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

 

This afternoon I was thinking about “New Year's resolutions”. A New Year resolution is a tradition in which a person resolves to change a behavior, a habit or make a personal goal to improve the quality of their life as they enter into a New Year. As I thought about this the Lord gave me several words about New Year's resolutions. 

The other day I was cleaning out my closets and setting aside some clothes to donate. The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said that it is time for us to dispose of anything that is outdated, out of style, damaged or we have outgrown. There are some of you who have outgrown the place that you are in spiritually and it’s time to move on. You have been created for greater things but your growth is stunted.

The Lord gave me an analogy of a plant that was created to be immense but was hindered from growing any larger due to the size of the pot that it was planted in. The roots take up the whole pot, therefore the plant cannot breathe, it is strangled and restrained. It could no longer hold any water and there is no room for soil. If it stayed in this pot long enough, eventually it would die. In order for this plant to grow to its full potential it would have to be uprooted and replanted. Some of you are restrained just as that plant is. Jesus wants to enlarge the place of your dwelling and take you higher in the New Year. 

As we come into this New Year, the Lord is requiring us to walk in a new level of holiness. Holiness is not referring to a form of dress or hairstyle, but it is referring to the condition of our hearts. Just when we come to a place of walking in purity, the Lord then says, now come up higher. You cant take some things into the New Year that you allowed in the last season. In order to come up higher, you have to remove some baggage.  The apostle Paul told the Corinthian church that they were not ready to receive spiritual things because they were carnal. He rebuked some for walking in strife and division and others who were following people rather than being led by the Holy Spirit.

The Lord wants to restore relationships, heal broken hearts, release people from anger, bitterness, contention and unforgiveness. As we allow Jesus to work in our hearts, our conscience will be cleansed and our minds will be renewed. As we forgive those who hurt us our lives will be restored. It is time to ask the Lord to search our hearts and show us anything that may be hindering our growth process. As Holy Spirit filled believers we should not be governed by our five senses or our flesh. As we make our New Year's resolutions, lets lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily besets us so that we could run the race and move forward into everything that we are called to do in the year 2020.


Psalm 24:3-4
Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart

Psalm 139:23-24
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Proverbs 4:23 (TPT)
So above all, guard the affections of your heart, for they affect all that you are.
Pay attention to the welfare of your innermost being, for from there flows the wellspring of life.




“You know your mind’s renewed when the impossible looks logical.” 
~ Bill Johnson ~




 "People reject you because they can't contain the capacity of your destiny." 





God is always advancing and always looking for new territory to take you into. He doesn't play 
defense, He plays offense. Every delay or difficulty is an opportunity to advance in some way if you
 view it correctly. Sometimes the opposition you face is not because you are being attacked, but because
 you are advancing into a place you have never been before and something is trying to push you back.
 Stop playing defense and start playing offense.
