FAST FORWARD INTO THE FUTURE
 

The Lord showed me someone driving a car and constantly looking into their rear view mirror. It’s great to use the rear view mirror to glace back to see how far you’ve come, but if you stare too long you will not see what is right in front of you, or miss your turn. Rear view mirrors are used for clearance and blind spots when changing lanes, but if you continually look in the rear view mirror, you will eventually crash. Many of you are not advancing spiritually because you are constantly looking back and reliving your past. There are memories that you are having a difficult time letting go of. It is imperative that you release the memories, mistakes and misfortunes so that you could advance into what Jesus has for you.

Some of you are still traumatized over certain incidents that have occurred in your lifetime. Jesus will take those good and bad times and create a masterpiece. You will be amazed at what the Lord will do with a life that is totally surrendered to Him. Holding on to the past as well as unforgiveness will hinder His work in you and will only bring sorrow, guilt, shame and regret. Don’t allow your past situations to determine your future destination. Be set free to receive beauty for ashes and the oil of joy for mourning.

Some of you are building strongholds by hanging on to old mindsets and ways of thinking. A stronghold is a mindset resistant to change. The Lord is not rebuking you but trying to bring you into an abundant life. Your life will move in the direction of your most dominant thought. If you continue to look back, eventually you will go in that direction. You must change the patterns of your thought life if you want to advance in your spiritual growth and tune in to the frequencies of heaven.

The Lord says; forget what lies behind. Don’t hold on to past memories that will burden you and bring bitterness to your soul. Don’t look at yourself the way that you were in the past. You are no longer the man or woman that you once were. Don’t reminisce on the good times and the way that you think it should have been. This will hinder you from what is to come. I am preparing a new wineskin. You must protect and nurture this new wineskin to be able to hold the new wine that I am releasing to you. Don’t look in the rear view mirror of your past any longer. This is preventing you from moving forward by holding on to worthless things and memories of situations that no longer exist. Release those who hurt you and I will heal you. As you continually align yourself with My word, all the hurtful memories will eventually diminish. I will take everything that you have gone through in the past and use it for My glory. Your past failures will not disqualify you for what I have called you to do.

There will be spiritual warfare along the journey and the enemy will try to steal, kill and destroy but I have equipped you to endure each battle. I have given you the ability to overcome every conflict. You will not falter under pressure but you will stand your ground through difficult times. Do not regress and do not give in to temptation. Don't look at the opposition that seems to be against you but rejoice because what the enemy planned for evil for your life shall not prevail.Your old nature is no longer in existence. Begin to see yourself the way that I see you. See the person that I have created you to be. Don’t be afraid of change, but move forward into the victory that I have for you. Don’t deprive yourself from entering into the blessings that I have for you. Remember where I have brought you from but walk in the newness that I am bringing you in to. Don’t allow memories of the past to derail you, but look to the promises and the provisions that I have for you says the Lord.
 
Isaiah 43: 18-19
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
  
Philippians 3:12-14 
Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
 
2 Corinthians 5: 17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

EZEKIEL’S ENCOUNTER OF THE RISING RIVER

 
There is a mighty river of revival that is about to hit the earth. Many of you are also sensing that we are right on the brink of that revival. The river is rising and we are about to step into a deeper realm than we've ever known. Ezekiel had several encounters with God. In Ezekiel chapter three the Lord brought him back to the door of the temple and showed him water flowing from under the threshold. The water was gushing out on every side. It goes on to say that there was a man (Who represents Jesus) who was measuring the depth of the waters which went from ankle deep to a massive river that couldn't be crossed in the natural. Verses 8 and 9 goes on to say that wherever this river goes it will bring healing and life. Verse 12 speaks about the fruit of the trees for food, and their leaves for medicine. John saw the same thing in Revelation 22:1-2

There is an abundance of rain that is about to fall and fill the rivers to overflowing. The Lord is about to bring many streams together for this great outpouring as we are going to experience His glory in an unprecedented way. Many things will transpire and multitudes will be swept into to the Kingdom. Many will experience breakthroughs of significant proportions. There will be great miracles that will accompany this outpouring. Everywhere that this river flows will bring healing. Everywhere that this river flows will bring life. What seemed impossible with man will become a natural occurrence. Do not be influenced by doubters but know that the Lord will watch over His word to perform it. Don’t allow anything to sever the flow of this river and don't allow anything to deviate you from this truth.
 
The Lord says; I am calling you into deeper waters. Now is the time to step out in faith into a place that you have never been. Do not fear the high tides or the turbulent waters in this time of acceleration. 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. Many streams will come together and flow into one river..
 
There is a dimension that is available to you and as you step into this river and allow Me to take you deeper, you will experience a new level of My glory. I am seeking those who will leave the past behind and step out into this river. They are those who have a willing heart to surrender all to Me. They are those who will humble themselves and hearken unto My voice, to usher in My river and to be carriers of My anointing in the days ahead. Do not despise the day of small beginnings. Do not become discouraged when the water is ankle deep but know that the water is rising. The days ahead will be glorious for the believers. As you see the river rising, it is time to launch out into the deep. In this season of rain, ask for the rain says the Lord.


Ezekiel 47:3-9
And when the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to my ankles. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to my knees. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to my waist. Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed. He said to me, "Son of man, have you seen this?" Then he brought me and returned me to the bank of the river.When I returned, there, along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other. Then he said to me: "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever 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.

Zechariah 10:1 
Ask the Lord for rain In the time of the latter rain. The Lord will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of Rain.

Revelation 22:1-2
And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

FACE TO FACE WITH JESUS



Every one of us is able to recall a time when we had experienced a life transforming encounter with Jesus. We could never forget that place of the overwhelming presence of His glory. I believe that 2018 is going to be a year of “face to face” encounters with Jesus.

Several years ago I had a dream. In this dream I began walking down a long corridor. There were doors on each side of the hallway. I opened one door to the room on my right and it was a hospital room. I then continued walking and opened a door on my left that appeared to be a guest room. As I continued walking I heard singing that sounded like a choir but I knew that it was angels. At this point I knew that I was dreaming and I thought to myself “If I listen, I will be able to hear the angels singing”. I walked to the next door and sat down on the floor listening to the angelic voices singing “Worthy is the Lamb”. The presence of God was so intense. I looked up and saw Jesus. There was a line of people waiting to go up to him to give him a hug and a kiss. I watched as each one had their turn. After the last person walked away, Jesus began to walk in my direction. I jumped up and said to him "Wait a minute, you have to give me a hug and a kiss". As he hugged me, and then gave me a kiss, his anointing flowed into my body. I wouldn’t let him go and I kept saying: Oh my God, I don’t believe it. He just laughed as the fire of his presence radiated through me. As I woke up from that dream, that same anointing was upon me.

Within the next few weeks every time I shared that dream, that same anointing was present. I then heard several confirmations of the Shulamite woman in Song of Solomon chapter three. She was in great distress as she searched for her love and couldn’t find him. She got up from her bed, and went out into the streets looking for him. She went up to the watchman asking “Have you seen the one that my heart loves?” When she found her love, she held him and would not let him go.

The Holy Spirit is confirming this dream once again. Many of you are going to have visitations from Jesus in the next few months as you search for him with all your heart. The Lord is going to speak to you in dreams as well as face to face encounters. Many unbelievers will also come to know Jesus through personal encounters. Be encouraged and stay in expectation.


Song of Solomon 3:1-4
By night on my bed I sought the one I love; I sought him, but I did not find him. “I will rise now,” I said, “And go about the city; in the streets and in the squares I will seek the one I love.” I sought him, but I did not find him. The watchmen who go about the city found me; I said, “Have you seen the one I love?” Scarcely had I passed by them, when I found the one I love. I held him and would not let him go, until I had brought him to the house of my mother, and into the chamber of her who conceived me.

POSSESSING YOUR TERRITORY

 
There is a story In the book of Numbers when the Lord told Moses to send twelve men, one from each of the twelve tribes of Israel to spy out the land of Canaan, which is also known as the Promised Land. As I read about the giants in the land and thought about all my friends and ministers who are going through intense spiritual warfare, the Holy Spirit said: “It comes with the territory”. Then He said: Go and take possession because I have made you well able to overcome. 

In the book of Numbers, ten out of the twelve spies came back with a bad report because they had seen the giants in the land. These are the same men who had previously experienced great miracles in which the Lord gave them a cloud by day, a fire by night, manna from heaven, and he miraculously provided for them for forty years in the wilderness. He also parted the Red Sea for them and six million people walked through the sea on dry ground while He destroyed their enemies.

When they went into Canaan to spy out the land, they feared the giants that they had encountered rather than remembering all that the Lord had done for them. They returned to Moses with a cluster of grapes which was so huge, that it took two men to carry it, but they also returned with a bad report.They said that the land surely does flow with milk and honey but the giants are too large for us to conquer. They also said, “We were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”

The Lord is showing me those of you who are facing giants in your life and you see yourself as a grasshopper rather than a conqueror. You recognize that the land ahead of you is flowing with milk and honey, but your focus is on the giants. Jesus gave you a promise but you are not trusting Him for the provision. Many of you are standing on the brink of Canaan but you are in fear because you came up against those giants. Fear looks at the giants, but faith looks at the promises.

Two of the twelve spies who were Joshua and Caleb didn’t deny that there were giants in the land, but they came back with a different story. They said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.”   In Numbers 14: 24 The Lord said; “but My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land where he went, and his descendants shall inherit it.”

The Lord says, “You are standing on the brink of your promised land. Pursue your journey with boldness. Just as I have performed miracles with a cloud by day and a fire by night for My people of old, I will also make provision for you and surround you with My protection. My Glory will go before you in all that I have called you to do, and every place that I have ordained for you to go. I will provide you with manna from heaven, and water from a rock. Just as I supernaturally sustained My people in the wilderness for forty years, I will also sustain you. Do not murmur and complain as the Israelite’s did, but know that I AM well able to bring you in.
 
Trust Me to part the Red Sea that is before you, just as I parted the Red Sea for My people and drowned their enemies as they tried to pursue them. You will no longer be a slave to Pharoah but you will be positioned above your taskmasters. Do not see yourself as a grasshopper in comparison to the giants that are coming against you. Give no place to fear and intimidation, but continue in confidence that I will fulfill My word that I have promised to you. The giants may appear to be immense in the natural, but that which I have given to you is so much greater.

I will bring confusion among your enemies just as I have sent hornets to drive out their enemies. I am looking for those who will be as bold as Joshua and Caleb who didn’t deny that there were giants in the land, but they knew that they were well able to overcome them. I am looking for those who will stand up and say, let us go up at once and possess the Land. Do not allow the enemy to magnify the difficult situations in your life, and don’t look at the giants as unconquerable. Go forth in all that I have commissioned for you to do, and knowing that you are well able to possess the land,” says the Lord.


Numbers 13:27-33
Then they told him, and said: “We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there. The Amalekites dwell in the land of the South; the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountains; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea and along the banks of the Jordan.” Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.” But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.” And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature. There we saw the giants[d] (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”




"Whenever God gives freedom, it is always implicit that the freedom He gives you can be given to other people.
You can go around setting other people free from the very thing that you were victimized by. God comes into
your life and He turns the areas of your abuse into areas of ministry and significance. He gives you a calling
in the area where the enemy tried to strip you of your identity or even kill your life. Your testimony is the
beginning of your ministry!"
