YOU ARE A SIGN & A WONDER


Many of us think about what it was like when Jesus walked the earth. As we read the bible we envision the story that is unfolding. We read about the miracles of the blind seeing, the lame waking, even the dead being raised. But one thing that we don’t realize is that before Jesus left the earth, He gave us the same power and authority that He had. He said “Greater works will you do because I go to My father.

Jesus was not an angry, critical or judgmental man as some people visualize Him to be. The only thing that He judged was the religious doctrine of the Scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees and false teachers. He rebuked people for lack of faith but everything that He did was done in love. Everywhere that He went healing, miracles and deliverance occurred. Jesus loved to blow people’s minds which caused a commotion in every town that he entered. 

He turned water into wine. He walked on water and called Peter out to walk to Him. Another time He multiplied food and fed thousands of people with five barley loaves and two small fish. He calmed a storm and raised Lazarus from the dead.

The Lord is calling us to walk as Jesus walked on this earth. We are called to be signs and wonders in this season of great chaos. He is looking for someone who will walk in strength and boldness as well as holiness and righteousness. He is looking for someone who He could trust with His anointing to do great exploits.

The Lord says, I have created you in My image. I have created you to represent Me in this hour. You are set apart for My purposes and plans, and I will move mightily on your behalf as you walk in integrity and sincerity. I have called you to be a sign and a wonder to this generation. I have called you to have courage and mountain moving faith.

Allow Me to take dominion over every area of your life so that you will begin to see with the eyes of faith. You will begin to trust Me as challenges arise. Allow Me to strengthen you in the things that you are unable to accomplish on your own. As you submit to My word of truth, it will sustain you and supply your daily bread. 

I will give you peace in the midst of every storm. Know that I am He who walked on the water. I am He who rebuked the wind and it ceased. I am He who said "Peace be still" to the raging sea and it became still. It is I who have given you the same authority over the winds in the spirit realm and over the waves in the natural realm. Do not be moved by the intensity of storms that arise in the natural. Do not waver in your belief, and do not falter by what is happening around you but keep your eyes on Me at all times.

Do not allow anything to throw you off course or mislead you. As you continue to pursue peace, you will dwell in safety. As you walk in righteousness, your foundation will be firm. Never allow fear to overwhelm you. As you pursue Me no matter what the situation may be, you will know that I have given you all power over the enemy and nothing by any means shall harm you says the Lord.

Matthew 21:21
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done.

John 14:12
“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.

1 John 2:6
Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.

CALLING DOWN FIRE FROM HEAVEN


We are living in a time of spiritual warfare like no other. Witchcraft is rampant, and just as in the days of Elijah, there are powers, principalities and rulers of darkness trying to take authority over our nation to no avail. There is a story in the bible about the prophet Elijah confronting the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel against their false gods. Elijah invited 450 prophets of Baal to a challenge. He asked them "How long will you waver between two opinions? If The Lord is God, then follow Him". If Baal is God, then follow him". Elijah then told them to make a sacrifice without a natural fire and the God who answers by fire will prove to be God.

They built an altar, slaughtered and cut oxen, then laid them on the wood of the altar. Elijah told them to pray for their god to send fire to light their sacrifice. The prophets of Baal prayed all day and night, and even cut themselves to offer blood to their god without success as Elijah mocked their god. The next day Elijah told them to pour water on the altar three times. When he called on the Lord (Jehovah) God sent a fire and consumed all the water, the sacrifice and the stones. When all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and declared, "The Lord (Elohiym), He is God!

We have authority over all the power of the enemy and nothing by any means can harm us. Jesus is raising up godly men and woman who will speak into the darkness and say "Let there be light" as we take the reins of intercession to steer our country in the right direction. He is raising up the Elijah's who will tear down the alters and confront the prophets of Baal. We will then witness the inevitable supernatural intervention and power of God in our Country, personal lives and ministries.

The Lord says; I am about to demonstrate My power in a magnificent way in the days ahead, as I release supernatural encounters which will cause men to acknowledge My deity as well as experiencing My presence. This is the day of unnatural occurrences when men will leave their religious traditions and follow after truth. Do not fear or be intimidated by the prophets of Baal, as their plans will not succeed. I am El Shaddai and I will show Myself strong on your behalf. When you speak, it will not be with persuasive words or mortal reasoning of mere men, but in demonstration and power with signs following. The time has come for My glory to be revealed. 

I will raise up those who will know how to call down fire from heaven to destroy the works of the enemy. I will train them how to thwart the strategies of the kingdom of darkness and cancel their assignments. They will dismantle his works of destruction by their authority from Me, and the words or their mouths. I will teach them how to walk in divine wisdom, release revelation and have keen discernment. The sword of My word will be in their mouths because they are unwavering in their faith and their strength is in Me. Supernatural encounters and signs will follow those who believe and many shall be used mightily in this season. Know your identity and be confident of who you serve and You will experience My glory released in an unprecedented way in the days ahead, says the Lord.

1 Kings 18:38-39 
Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench. Now when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, "The Lord, He is God! The Lord, He is God! 

Proverbs 26:2 (The Passion Translation)
An undeserved curse will be powerless to harm you. It may flutter over you like a bird, but it will find no place to land.

1 Corinthians 2:45 
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.

MOVING BEYOND THE BREAKING POINT


Yesterday I read a post from a friend who I met on Facebook several years ago. He was in Washington DC having a great time with his family. About three years ago he was diagnosed with cancer and needed a bone marrow transplant. I remember him telling me that the worst thing anyone could do is lose hope. He said that he is a soldier and he was always looking for the next battle to confront it head on. There is no surrender to the enemy. Then he quoted a promise in Genesis 28:15 that the Lord gave to him. His life is now a testimony for Jesus because quitting was not an option for him.

Many of you feel as if you are at the breaking point. The tests and trials have been relentless and seem so overwhelming, but Jesus, the Lord of the breakthrough says; I see your struggles and I understand the burdens, hardships and difficulties and even the verbal attacks that have come against you. Trust in Me because no matter what the situation looks like in the natural I will not let you fall, fail or be consumed by adversity. My hand is upon you and I will complete that which I have begun in your life.

Although the storms may be raging all around you, the battle may be fierce and the warfare may appear to be intensifying, do not panic but be still and listen for My voice. I speak in the midst of the storms. Do not allow anything to derail you from the leading of My Spirit. Many of you have had sleepless nights worrying about situations in your life. Do not allow the evil one to bring fear, condemnation, tormenting thoughts and voices during the night. Many of you are concerned about your future and some have physical issues that the doctors said were terminal but nothing is impossible for those who believe. 

Do not retreat, but continue to pursue what I have placed in your heart to do. These storms shall pass. Just as the wise man who obeyed My word were steadfast and unaffected when the storms came, know that I will strengthen you as you stand immovable and trust Me to bring you through. Do not bow to the opposition or break under the pressure. Just as grapes are compressed in the wine-press through a process of crushing, these times will bring forth much fruit in your life as you endure, stay strong and stay steadfast says the Lord.

Genesis 28:15
Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.”

Proverbs 24:10
If you faint in the day of adversity, Your strength is small.

Ephesians 6:10 -13
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

THE HAND OF GOD

 

Last night we had a heavy thunderstorm with a lot of lightening. I asked the Lord why this was necessary. He brought me to Exodus 9:23. The Lord brought thunder, hail and lightening flashing to the ground to destroy his enemies. Moses simply obeyed His word by stretching a rod toward heaven. Once again it is time to stretch forth your rod. Jesus is about to do amazing wonders among us to show Himself strong over Egypt. Pharaohs regime is coming down.

In the book of Exodus, The Lord appeared to Moses in a burning bush and asked him to go to Pharaoh with a word from the Lord. Moses replied, "But suppose they will not believe me or listen to my voice; suppose they say, 'The Lord has not appeared to you.' Then He said to Moses, "What is that in your hand?" Moses replied "a rod".

The scripture goes on to say how the Lord commissioned Moses along with Aaron to deliver the Israelites out of Egypt. Although He released miracles, signs and wonders, Pharaoh resisted the word from the Lord to "Let My people go" until The Lord sent ten plagues on Egypt. He also sent a mighty East wind and used Moses with his rod to part the Red Sea for the children of Israel to escape. They went through on dry ground unscathed, but when Pharaoh and the Egyptian army along with their horses and chariots followed after them, Pharaoh and his regime all drowned. 


The Lord says; I will use that which I have placed in your hand. Do not say that I am the least of these or I am unable to speak. I will establish you and speak through you. Do not worry beforehand, or premeditate on what you will say, but speak whatever is given to you at that time. For it is not you who will speak, but the Holy Spirit. Your words will be spoken from a place of authority.

I will place My anointing upon you in the courts of Pharaoh. You will understand your potential as you walk in My anointing, demonstrate My power, and release My glory. I have placed My rod of authority into your hands, and placed My sword of the Spirit in your mouth. You will use My rod of authority to part the red sea that is obstructing others from coming into the kingdom. You will use My rod of authority to destroy the attacks of the enemy.

I will use you to deliver My people out of Egypt. There will be a mass Exodus of people coming out of spiritual Egypt, released from the kingdom of darkness, and delivered into the Kingdom of light. When it seems like the enemy is gaining on you, you will outwit him as you raise your rod of authority and watch the seas part. The plans of the enemy will be demolished. You are about to cross over into a new dimension and you will surely see my goodness in the land of the living says the Lord. 

Exodus 9:23
And Moses stretched out his rod toward heaven; and  the Lord sent thunder and hail, and fire darted to the ground. And the Lord rained hail on the land of Egypt.

Exodus 14:21-23
And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.


Psalm 8:3-4
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars,
 which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him,
 and the son of man that You visit him?




While He is perfecting me, He is introducing me to new beginnings.

So what seems to be chaos is only completion and creation occurring simultaneously.
