I want to share a word that I had last year because it is even more relevant today. There is a book in the bible about a man named Job. He was a blameless and upright man who had experienced a great loss in every area of his life. Although he went through a horrendous trial for some time, he did not become angry or resentful. The book of Job chapter 42:10 – 16 tells us that after Job had prayed for his friends the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before.
Job said during this trying time that he would come forth as gold because he knew that he didn't do anything to deserve such an injustice. He also understood that Gods plan for his life could not be thwarted or cancelled. When God gives you a promise, it will come to pass no matter what your situation is in the natural.
The Lord says, I hear your cry and I hear every prayer. As you call out to me in the fires of affliction, I will respond. Though the trials seem endless, I am with you through them all. Just as the refining of gold removes impurities, those things in your life that are unacceptable shall be removed. In the same way that refining gold separates the pure from the less precious metals, I am removing the dross from your life. I am releasing you into royalty which comes forth from purity. Trust me to strengthen you as you are refined in these tying times. Disregard the opinions of those who doubt my word. The opinions of others cannot negate my plans.
Just as Job, when you are tried you will also come forth as gold. In the same way that gold is symbolic for a covenant in a wedding band, I am establishing my covenant with you. Do not focus on your past so that you will not be delayed from advancing into your future. I will bring you through those difficult seasons and remove those things that are confining and restricting you from moving forward. Allow me to free you from all doubts and fears that are imprisoning you. As you trust me, you will be released from the restraints that are holding you in bondage. 
Shake off the heaviness and despair. Be careful not to go back to your old ways of living and don’t allow the enemy to intimidate you by trying to steal your identity in me. The enemy could not terminate anything that I have for you as long as you do not yield to him. Love your enemies rather than be critical of them. Bless them that curse you and pray for those who despitefully use you.
If you listen for My voice, you will no longer be misled by the voices of unbelief. I Am the God of liberation, and as you refuse to submit to anything contrary to my word, I will deliver you from all the chaos in your life. I will release you from those things that are harming you and supply of all your needs.
Trust me for your healing. Trust me for your deliverance. Trust me for your financial needs. Trust me in your marriage. See yourself healed and made whole. See yourself prosperous. See yourself strong and able to stand against any adversity that comes your way. Decree and declare that you are more than a conqueror. As you acknowledge the glorious future that I have for you, your life will be transformed and you will see my plans come to pass in your life and ministry says the Lord.
Job 23:10-12 
But He knows the way that I take; When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold. My foot has held fast to His steps; I have kept His way and not turned aside. I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth More than my necessary food.
Job 42:2 
Job replied I know that you can do all things; no plan of Yours can be thwarted.
Job 42:12-17 
Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys. He also had seven sons and three daughters. And he called the name of the first Jemimah, the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-Happuch. In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers. After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his children and grandchildren for four generations. So Job died, old and full of days.

There is an old story about “A Canary in a Coal mine” which originated from mining history. It is said that the coal miners would bring caged canaries into mines with them. If dangerous toxic gases such as carbon monoxide were in the mine, the canaries would get sick or even die before it affected the miners. As the miners were alerted they were able to put on protective respirators or escape unharmed.

The canary in a Coal mine has become a metaphor in our day referring to someone who is sensitive to their surroundings. They are sensitive to any warnings of danger. The Lord is showing me that He is developing your gift of discernment. You will begin to be sensitive to the spiritual atmospheres around you. You will begin to discern the enigmas and the images that the Holy Spirit shows you. As you submit to Jesus your thoughts will begin to line up with His word.

He wants to communicate with you through all your senses. Your spiritual senses will become sharper depending on what you are focusing on. As you allow Jesus word to become a part of you, your mind will be renewed. You will no longer desire to submit to the things of the carnal nature and the temptations of this world will grow dim. As you hunger for spiritual realities, you will find that hearing His voice will come with ease.

You have been created in the image of God so begin by speaking the word of God. Put the word before your eyes, in your heart and in your mind. He wants us to learn to recognize His voice through our thoughts from a renewed mind. You have the mind of Christ and hold the thoughts, feelings and purposes of His heart. You will become sensitive to His voice, and perceive what He wants to do and say.

There is power in the spoken word. As you speak the Word of God you will not be speaking religious repetitive words but decreeing and declaring His will, purpose and plans. Death and life  are  in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
He will show you how to use your tongue for blessing rather than cursing.

He also wants to speak to you in dreams. As you begin to remove anything that desensitizes you from hearing His voice, your dreams will become more vivid. You will discern between His voice, your own mind or the devil. You will learn how to tune in just as a GPS and know your destination as well as your direction. You will always go in the direction of your most dominant thought in the same way that a GPS guides you to the right road. Don’t fear the supernatural realm but as sons and daughters of God, be led by the Spirit and not the flesh.

Hebrews 5:14
But solid food belongs to those who are  [ c ] of full age,  that is,  those who by reason of  [ d ] use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

1 Corinthians 2:14-15
But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know  them,  because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is  rightly  judged by no one.

Romans 8:5-8
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those  who live  according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be  [ a ] carnally minded  is  death, but to be spiritually minded  is  life and peace. Because the carnal mind  is  enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

The Lord has given me several dreams the past few weeks. A few nights ago I dreamt of a prominent minister who many of you are familiar with. In this dream I was watching him on an old black and white TV. As he was standing at the edge of the platform he had a word of knowledge. A lady quickly walked across the stage towards him. He yelled to her “Get out of here”. She walked over to him and pushed him backwards off the stage. I then lost reception on the TV. I was wondering if the program was live. I scrolled though the channels but just got static and was not able to tune the picture back in.

As soon as I woke up and recorded the dream I received the interpretation. I knew that this woman represented the spirit of Jezebel and the dream had a lot of spiritual significance. In this dream she didn’t kill him but she tried to push him off his platform. The Lord is showing me that the enemy has been trying to push many of you out of your position of authority. He is showing me an airplane that hasn’t left the ground. Airplanes are meant to fly, not roll on a runway. You have a calling on your life but can’t seem to get off the ground. The Holy Spirit wants to take you into new levels and new heights of what you have been called to do.

This afternoon when I thought about this dream I remembered something that I experienced a couple of years ago when I was very sick. I heard (not literally) a voice from the kingdom of darkness saying - "I am not finished with you yet". I remember thinking about this for a few seconds but then the presence of God flooded my body and the Holy Spirit spoke to me in a still small voice saying "I Am not finished with you yet". He confirmed this word with the scripture Jeremiah 29:11. I knew this was Jesus. His voice was gentle but strong. It was not demanding or forceful but filled with love and compassion.

The Holy Spirit is showing me that many of you are listening to the voices of the enemy and it is bringing fear and torment into your life. There are numerous voices in the world that vies for your attention throughout the day. They come in mere thoughts and images in your minds. They come with enticement and temptations. Jesus will never lead you in the wrong direction. The Holy Spirit is your comforter. Jesus has plans for you. He is not finished with you yet.

The Lord says; don't submit to the voices that bring defeat and confusion, but listen for the voice of truth. I have given you ears to hear and I speak with clarity. My voice will bring peace and it will carry My presence. It will always glorify Jesus for who He is and what He has done for you. It will release healing and it will bring favor. Don't allow your emotions to become entangled with thoughts of failure and defeat but allow Me to release My presence into every situation.

You were once in the kingdom of darkness but now you are the light of the world. The enemy has trained you to fight well when you were in his camp, but now is the time to take those same spiritual weapons of warfare and use them against him. I have given you authority over powers, principalities, rulers of darkness and wicked spirits in heavenly places. I have put My word in your mouth and have given you dominion to decree and declare what is rightfully yours. Your words have authority to call things into existence and transform atmospheres. The powers of darkness will have to obey and submit as you speak My word.

Do not submit to the lies of the enemy about your future. I Am your healer, I Am your provider, I Am your deliverer, I Am the God of your destiny and I Am with you in the fire of affliction. Rejoice at all times and know that all that I have promised to you will come to pass. When the voices of darkness try to rise up against you in fear, intimidation and accusation, know that your victory is assured. I will watch over My word to perform it and I will complete the work that I have began in you says the Lord.

2 Corinthians 10: 5
Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

Philippians 1:6
Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete  it  until the day of Jesus Christ

1 Thessalonians 5:24
He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

The Lord is looking for believers who will reach multitudes of millennial's. He is searching for someone who has an awesome testimony of being an over comer to deliver others from the grip of the enemy. He is looking for believers who have paid the price as they walked through and survived grueling trials. He is looking for transformers who have been more than conqueror's in every battle that they faced and will train others to do the same.

There is a shaking taking place in America right now. It is a shaking in the political realm, the religious realm and in the spiritual realm. I believe that the cause of this shaking is because Jesus is about to arrive and display His glory in a mighty way. He wants to use every one of us in extraordinary ways not in word only, but in demonstration of His power with healing, miracles, signs and wonders. We are as partakers of His divine nature.

In Paul's second letter to the Corinthian church (1 Corinthians 2:4-5), he said: My speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. Paul’s life was transformed and his name was changed from Saul to Paul on the road to Damascus. He had an encounter with Jesus and went from being a murderer to become one of the greatest apostles of all time. We are about to see men and women rise up to walk in a greater anointing.
We are living in a time when sinners are demanding that their voices be heard. Many people are coming out of the closet while others are locking themselves in with fear. Many people want control and authority but believers must realize that Jesus has given us the authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt us.
It is time to lay hands on the sick and watch them recover. Don’t allow the depraved doctrines of demons manipulate you. Don’t be intimidated or swayed by their words of deception. There is no reason to dispute and no reason to defend yourself when you know who you are in Christ. Do not fear the spirit of anti-Christ because you have been called to greatness. We are the light of the world. It is time to let our light so shine before men, that they may see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven. Now is the time for revival.

Romans 8:19
For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

1 Corinthians 2:1-5
And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching  were  not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

1 Corinthians 4:20
For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power. 

1 Thessalonians 1:5
For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit and in much assurance, as you know what kind of men we were among you for your sake.

When we declare ourselves inadequate for something God has called us to do, we are basically saying that our inadequacy is greater than God’s adequacy.
– Rick Joyner

When the trials and battles are intense, we are usually quick to seek the Lord. When we begin to walk in the promises and everything is going well, we do have the tendency to become complacent, often slipping into compromise.
– Rick Joyner
