THE RESURRECTION OF DEAD DREAMS


This week Christians all around the world are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus died, went into Hades, disarmed principalities and powers, made a public spectacle of them, and triumphed over them. Then he was resurrected by the father on the third day.

Before Jesus died he told his disciples, that no one will take his life but he has the power to lay it down, and take it again. He also said,  Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.  

Jesus also said (John 16) that he had to leave the earth so that the Holy Spirit would come. The Holy Spirit now lives inside of you and the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, dwells in you and gives life to your mortal body.

There are many of you who have grown discouraged because of situations in your lives. Some of you have not experienced any spiritual growth or changes in your life for some time now because you have let go of your dreams. Your zeal is gone and you have abandoned the word of God. You are no longer hearing the voice of The Holy Spirit because you have become lax and are no longer pressing in. Jesus wants to resurrect those dreams once again.

The Lord says, I am the resurrection and the life, I am the God that raises the dead and restores lost dreams. Allow Me to resurrect those dreams that have died and revive you once again. I am your deliverer, your restorer, your healer, your provider and I will supply all your needs as you spend time with Me. Allow Me to remove the blinders from your spiritual eyes so that you could see again. Allow Me to remove obstructions from your spiritual ears so that you will hear again. Allow Me to infuse you with new insight. Don't entertain thoughts of defeat any longer, but come to Me with expectancy. Allow Me to fill every barren area of your life, and listen for My still small voice to bring resurrection to those dead areas. Allow Me to restore the joy that you once had in your relationship with Me. Don't allow circumstances to keep you from who you were called to be, and don't allow people to hinder your relationship with Me. Don't allow anything to compromise the Covenant that I have made with you.

I have made everything available that you need to succeed in your personal life as well as your spiritual life. As you spend time with Me, you will discover how to hear My voice. As you connect with Me once again, your life will have new meaning and you will be inspired with new vision. Never settle for anything less than the plans that I have for you. Don't allow burdens to weigh you down because my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Don't be afraid to trust Me with your whole heart because as you hunger for more, your desires will be met. Stir yourself up and don't allow the pressures of the world to weigh you down or pull you back. Don't limit Me, as there are no limits with what I can do with your life. As you redirect your thought life to the truth of My word you will receive clarity of mind. Don't allow anything to annihilate your zeal for Me. As you rekindle that fire, watch how My anointing will resurrect everything that pertains to your life and ministry says the Lord.
 
Matthew 11:28 - 29
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."

Acts 2:31-33
He, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption. This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses. Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear.

Romans 8:11
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

1 Corinthians 6: 19-20
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit  who is  in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?  For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

TRIUMPHING OVER YOUR TASKMASTERS


I want to share a word that I received last year. In the book of Exodus chapter one, after Joseph and his whole generation had died, the Israelite's were fruitful, and increased abundantly in Egypt because of his obedience. When the new king had seen this, he was fearful and put task masters over them to oppress them. The task masters made their lives bitter with harsh labor and afflicted them with heavy burdens; but as they did this, something unusual was happening. The more that the Israelite's were oppressed as the Egyptians worked them ruthlessly, the more they multiplied and spread abroad. 

The Holy Spirit is showing me that many of you have been driven and oppressed by the enemy, as well as used and abused by people. Some of you have gone through situations which have been brutal. As you fear God and not man, these afflictions are going to bring you into expansion, growth and prosperity. 

The Lord says; those who have tried to manipulate you and belittle you will soon recognize the favor of God on your life. Those who have tried to control you and oppress you will soon withdraw because of the shield of protection that I have around you. No one could bring harm to you as I am faithful to My word. I will establish you and guard you against all matter of evil. Don't fear the spiritual weapons that are formed against you because they shall not succeed, and every tongue that rises against you in judgment shall prove to be false. The evil assignments that are coming against you will be rendered null and void. As the enemy tries to bring devastation and destruction, I will preserve your life. This is your heritage as you abide in Me. Know that I am present in every assault and violation says the Lord.

Then the Holy Spirit showed me something else in the same paragraph of Exodus chapter one. In verses 15-21 The king Pharaoh ordered the midwives to kill the first born males as they were born, but the midwives refused. When he asked them why they didn't obey, the midwives replied: "because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women; for they are lively and give birth before the midwives come to them."

The Lord says: You will observe things coming into fruition and coming to pass expeditiously in your personal life. The intentions that I have for you will come forth suddenly. And just as the Israeli women, you are going to produce in a way that will amaze others. They will witness My goodness as they see your harvest in abundance. You will see the increase even before the midwives come to assist you. This will release you into favor with the Pharaoh's and the oppressors, and many will begin to submit and reverence My name. Even your enemies will be at peace with you as they see My goodness increase in your life says the Lord. 

Exodus 1:11-14 
Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh supply cities, Pithom and Raamses. But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were in dread of the children of Israel. So the Egyptians made the children of Israel serve with rigor. And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage-in mortar, in brick, and in all manner of service in the field. All their service in which they made them serve was with rigor.

Exodus 1:16-18 
So the king of Egypt called for the midwives and said to them, "Why have you done this thing, and saved the male children alive?" And the midwives said to Pharaoh, "Because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women; for they are lively and give birth before the midwives come to them. "Therefore God dealt well with the midwives, and the people multiplied and grew very mighty. And so it was, because the midwives feared God that He provided households for them.

Psalm 41:11 
By this I know that You are well pleased with me, because my enemy does not triumph over me.

Luke 12:32 
Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

PURSUE, OVERTAKE & RECOVER ALL


King David was called and ordained through the prophet Samuel as a young shepherd boy. He was known for slaying the giant Goliath whom the Israelites feared and were not able to defeat. When he volunteered to take on Goliath, he knew that he could defeat him because he had already killed a lion and a bear. He was a mighty warrior who had been through many battles and always came out victorious. He was a king, and a prophet as well as a poet and a musician. He was a warrior but also a man after Gods own heart who had an intimate relationship with the Lord. In Psalms 139 he asked God to search his heart and see if there is any wicked way in him.

There was a time when David was running from Saul, and the Lord sent him to the cave of Adullam. There were four hundred men in this cave who were in distress, in debt and discontented. David taught them how to be invincible warriors, raised them up and trained them as a mighty army. In 1 Samuel chapter 30 when David and his men returned home from war, they reached Ziklag, and found it destroyed by fire and their wives, sons and daughters were taken captive by the Amalekites. David and his men wept aloud until they had no strength left to weep. His own people then turned against David wanting to stone him. David went before the Lord and he asked Him; “Shall I pursue this troop? Will I overtake them?” The Lord replied: “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail you will recover all.”

David and his army attacked the Amalekites and got back everything that was stolen, including their wives, children, families and all their valuables. Nothing was missing. Then David took all the flocks and herds and said, “This is David’s spoil.”

The Lord says, I have called you and chosen you from a young age. I have trained your hands for war, and your fingers for battle to become victorious over every violation that comes against you. As you continue to encourage yourself in Me, you will regain your spiritual momentum. When calamity comes in as an ambush, stand steadfast in the armor that I have provided for you. Continue to resist all discouragement and stand immovable knowing that I have given you the ability and the authority to overcome every assault that is raised up against you. Although the battle has been fierce at times and there are things in your life that seems to be destroyed and lost forever, you will recover all that has been plundered from the enemy.

Do not deviate from the truth but stand steadfast to your convictions. Stand on the promises that are available to you. Do not allow the enemy to intimidate you and don’t be moved by his ineffectual strategies. Rise up as men and women of faith and take the position as the warrior that I have created you to be. Do not allow fear or bitterness to take root and refuse to be moved by the way situations appear in the natural. As you trust in Me, I will not fail you or lead you astray but you shall surely pursue, overtake and without fail recover all that has been lost or stolen, “says the Lord


1 Samuel 30:6
“Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God,”  

1 Samuel 30:8-10.
“So David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.” So David went, he and the six hundred men who were with him, and came to the Brook Besor, where those stayed who were left behind. But David pursued, he and four hundred men; for two hundred stayed behind, who were so weary that they could not cross the Brook Besor,”  

1 Samuel 30:18-20
“David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away, and David rescued his two wives. And nothing of theirs was lacking either small or great, sons or daughters, spoils or anything which they had taken from them; David recovered all. Then David took all the flocks and herds they had driven before those other livestock, and said, “This is David’s spoil.”

SPIRITUAL LEADERS EMERGING

 
The other day the Lord showed me a picture of a lioness nursing her cubs. I understood immediately that He was showing me that He is raising up women as well as men to be mentors to the next generation. Some of you are being groomed for ministry to nurture the younger believers into the calling that the Lord has for them. Those of you who are grounded in the word, know how to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit, and are able to discern that which is spiritual from that which is carnal will mentor these young cubs.
To those of you who are in your “golden years”, the Lord has not forgotten you. You will release the wisdom and revelation that He has imparted to you to the younger generation.

After I received this word I did a search on the lioness and her cubs. The cubs will go on to eat meat after a few months but remain dependent on the mother’s milk for up to two years. The mother protects them as they are vulnerable to predators and other lions who may also be a threat. The lionesses will fight back when anyone tries to attack her cubs.

I also came across a story that happened last year of a lion that was found nursing a leopard cub. They said that it seems as though this lioness’s aggressive instincts have taken a back seat to her maternal ones. Lions live in groups called “prides” which means that this leopard cub would need to be welcomed into the lion pride after it matures. The Lord showed me something interesting as I read this. There are those of you who will be also mentoring others who are outside of the lion’s pride. They will come from other tribes and you will welcome them, council them and take them under your wing to guard them.

Jesus is looking for mentors who will reach out and rescue those who are in desperate situations because they know what it is to pay the price as they have overcome through grueling trials. They are mature believers who will train and equip the young ones for their assignment ahead. They will explain the battle plan and teach them how to be tenacious in spiritual warfare and how to be strong and very courageous. They have been more than conqueror's in every battle and will train others to be the same. They will encourage them to pursue the plan and calling on their lives and never retreat in battle. They will teach them how to walk and train them how to be led. They will teach them when to war, and teach them when to stand.

He is looking for those who will help them to discover their purpose for their lives. They will not mentor from natural knowledge, but they will teach what they have learned through divine revelation of the Word of God. They will advise them on righteousness and teach them to live with clean hands and a pure heart. Demons tremble at the sound of their voice because they carry an anointing and understand their Covenant rights.

He is looking for the prophets to teach the younger ones how to be used in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. To show them how to be used in miracles, signs and wonders with respect and reverence of the anointing on their lives. They are those who know their authority in Jesus name. They will be those who mentor not only through sound doctrine but in wisdom and love. They will mentor not just with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power

Matthew 28:19-20
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
 
1 Corinthians 2:4 -5
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.

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

A SEASON OF DIVINE ACCELERATION
 
 
Those of you who know me, know that the Holy Spirit sometimes speaks to me through extremely vivid dreams. This morning when I woke up I knew that I had several dreams but I couldn’t recall the details. After a few minutes I walked into the kitchen and as I looked at my clock the Holy Spirit instantly brought back to my remembrance an amazing dream that I had. I knew without a doubt that this dream was a word from God.
 
In the dream I was looking at a clock on a wall. It was a fairly large clock, round, and approximately 12’ in diameter. As I was watching it the hands began to rotate on their own. I was so excited because I knew that the Holy Spirit was showing me an acceleration of time. I remember watching intently as the hands went around. I was waiting to see what number they stopped at and although they didn’t stop, for some reason it caught my attention when the minute hand passed the number six. I quickly reached for my phone to record a video of this supernatural phenomenon.
 
As I began to write down the dream, the Lord showed me several things. The clock hands moving forward at an accelerated speed represented an acceleration of the time that we are in. Then I remembered a supernatural incident that occurred with the prophet Bob Jones before he passed. Bob’s wife Bonnie and a couple of his friends were sitting in his hospital room and the hands on the clock began to move supernaturally. They recorded it on their mobile phone and have an actual video of it on the internet which I was able to find and watch. What I saw in that video was the same exact clock that I saw in my dream. They were in awe as they actually witnessed the hands of the clock rotating supernaturally, and I was in awe watching it do the same on that video. I knew that the Holy Spirit was giving me a clear message about divine acceleration.

The Lord says, "The winds are stirring once again, and I am releasing a mighty wind of My glory to transform lives 'suddenly.' Multitudes will be brought into the kingdom for such a time as this. Many will be healed, captives will be delivered and set free, and many will be brought into repentance as a shift will be happening simultaneously on earth as it is in heaven. I am stirring the atmosphere to bring change to the church as you know it. Angelic activity is being released from the third heaven that no man can stop or reverse. Do not judge things by what you see happening in the natural, but watch what I am about to do. I Am El Shaddai and I am sending a tsunami of My glory over the nations."
 
"Just as the winds are blowing in the natural, I am about to send a mighty rushing wind across this nation and around the world. Just as the winds came 'suddenly' in the upper room, I am sending My Glory to revamp things in the natural. That which I intended for in these last days shall be accomplished. There will be a great acceleration in the lives and hearts of people. I will bring times of refreshing in times of drought. I will bring light to areas where darkness seems to prevail. I am sending the latter and the former rains. Do not become fearful when you see the dark clouds but rejoice. It is the dark clouds that carry the heavy rain. This is where My glory dwells and My Anointing will be released. As I said in My word, the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea; says the Lord."


Job 33:15-16
In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, while slumbering on their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their
instruction.

Habakkuk 2:14
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as
the waters cover the sea.

Haggai 2:6-7
For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts




“I can’t afford to live in reaction to darkness. If I do, darkness has had a role in setting the agenda for
my life. The devil is not worthy of such influence, even in the negative. Jesus lived in response to the
Father. I must learn to do the same.”
- Bill Johnson



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
