God is Summoning the Map Makers

By | Prophetic Insight, Prophetic Word, Spiritual Growth | No Comments

I was listening to a book on audio this morning, as I often do, and the author quoted what he called an old Montana saying. It went, “The time to have the map is before you enter the woods”.

The premise of the quote is that you want to be prepared with instruction BEFORE you enter into a situation where you need instruction. Makes total sense when you’re thinking logically.

But seconds after hearing this quote, immediately I had to pause the audio book because God started speaking to me on the matter.

This saying is 100% true….. Unless you’re the map maker.

At one point, those woods were uncharted territory. SOMEONE had to map those woods out. Someone had to be the first to be brave enough to enter the woods, with no instruction, and make a way for others to follow them into unknown territory.

I believe God is summoning the Map Makers to come forth and enter the “woods” with no instructions. No map in hand. No real grid for what to expect. Just believing that they were called, and Holy Spirit is with them.

God is saying that if you will rise to the occasion, He Himself will release the revelation to you about where to go, where to step, where not to step. And you will map a trail for others to follow.

In practical terms, there are people that God is calling forth in the world today to do things that have never been done. There’s not 12 step program to show you how to do what God is calling you to do, and that’s ok because you’re about to do something that has never been done before.

It will take some backbone and fortitude to do what God has called you to do, and you may not have any other examples to follow, but that’s ok because you are a Map Maker, and you don’t do this because it’s safe and cuddly. You do it for God and for the ones who will come behind you, needing a map in their hand in order to navigate the terrain that YOU trailblazed ahead of them.

Let’s do this.

I know you feel that this word has blessed your life and. A sense of vision and boldness is arising in you. Prayerfully consider contributing to this ministry today. We are able to do what we do, equipping others, preaching the Gospel, and raising up leaders, because of the support of people just like you. You are such an amazing blessing.

A Season of Shaking is Here

By | Prophetic Insight, Prophetic Word, Spiritual Growth | 4 Comments

Things are shaking in the world today, and that which is built upon deception, lies, hate, and perversion is coming down.

I want to preface by stating that this is not meant to be a spooky, weird, or scary prophetic word, even though I normally don’t prophesy like this. Make sure and read to the end because God is good, and this shaking is good for us, good for the world, and good for the Body of Christ.

There is a lot of shaking taking place in the world today. Not a physical shaking but a spiritual one. I also wouldn’t necessarily call this the “judgement” of God, as I am hearing others do, but rather this is a spiritual repercussion or “natural consequence” of hidden scandal.

When I say many things are shaking, I am speaking at a global level. Many Christians feel overwhelmed because it feels like so many bad things are happening at once. This senator was exposed for child molestation, that huge mega-church pastor gets a divorce and is exposed for infidelity and alcoholism, that person was exposed for sexual assault, racist remarks are being confronted instead of tolerated, a human-trafficking ring exposed….

I kept all of those things very generic and didn’t use any names, but they are all things we are literally seeing in our headlines, on the news, and all around us right now. It’s not that these things didn’t used to exist. It’s that they are being uncovered and exposed at an unprecedented rate.

Financial scandal, affairs, and fraud, OH MY!

What we’re seeing here is a spiritual Biblical principle in action:
But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. Eph. 5:13

This is not a time to be worried, afraid, or fearful. I do not believe that in this season of shaking that we are in any danger. I also don’t believe that God is angrily shaking things. As I stated earlier, it’s more of a natural consequence of the culmination of much deception, and also an answer to the cry of prayer we all have for God’s Kingdom to be established.

Many fake palaces built on the pain and abuse of others are about to come toppling down. In fact, this has already begun but it’s not quite finished yet. Things that were done deceptively and in the secret, are being brought to light. Light is shining in dark places like never before! That’s why all these things are making the news at a higher intensity than usual. Even on a smaller scale, I’m seeing it everywhere I turn in my friends lives, at the churches we visit, and in families that we are acquainted with.

What the Lord revealed to me is that this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and for many of these people whose dark deeds are being exposed, a better way is up ahead of them. Or at least it’s being offered to them. God is giving these people a chance for a fresh start.

Picture a house that wasn’t built up to code: The electrician took shortcuts, did not follow proper protocol, and used cheap or faulty materials. The plumber cut corners and lazily put in pipes. Even the framework is subpar. The contractor got rotting wood, termite infested wood, and cheap flimsy wood to construct the frame, but then of course eventually drywall and insulation were put on top, and when they used top quality paint, and elaborate molding, and installed chandeliers, who would suspect what kind of terrible craftsmanship these beautiful finishes were covering up?

THIS HOUSE ENDS UP LOOKING LUXURIOUS ON THE OUTSIDE, BUT A RECKONING DAY WILL COME BECAUSE UNDERNEATH THOSE WALLS ARE SECRETS.

THIS IS WHAT WE ARE SEEING UNFOLD, MY FRIENDS.

In regards to the comparison I just made about the house where all the corners were cut, what do you think the best way to fix this house is? The best plan of action would be to tear the whole thing down and start over. You can’t save a house that was built with the framework of deception.

Don’t be fearful

This is not a word I put out to make people afraid. Even if you’re reading this thinking, “Wow, MY whole life is built on deception. I could very well be one of those people whose dark deeds are about to come to light”, this is still a good news word. It’s never too late to come clean with the people around you. Wouldn’t you rather sleep soundly at night knowing that your metaphorical house isn’t about to come crumbling down around you or burn down while you sleep?

What does this mean for the Body of Christ?

It means restoration and rebuilding is about to become more necessary than ever. White washed tombs type of religious establishments are about to come crumbling down. This is good though because it will make way for us to establish God’s Kingdom on Earth like never before.

In short, don’t be fearful or nervous when you see all these dark deeds coming to light in leader’s lives, or even on a smaller scale in your families. I believe the restoration and rebuilding of these lives will be remarkable because it will be a construction of LOVE, and with the intent to make the world a better place. Heaven is invading Earth. Some of these “deceptive buildings” have to come down first, but it’s for the best, and God always offers restoration and reconciliation.

Some of us are going to be called as rebuilders to come alongside friends, leaders and loved ones who decide they need to come out with deep dark secrets. Their palaces will crumble and it will be devastating to their friends and family, but those who are repentant (this means they genuinely change their mind about continuing in deception and they want freedom) will need help. They will need accountability to call them up higher. They will need people to love them and show them grace to restore them.

God is doing good things in the Earth today. Even this shaking is a good thing. Be ready to be used by God in this season!

Prophetic Word for December 2017

By | Prophetic Insight | One Comment

There he went into a cave and spent the night. And the word of the LORD came to him: “What are you doing here, Elijah?” -1 Kings 19:9

I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, it’s time to come out of hiding. Withdrawing is not what I have for you. I am sending you into the midst of a people who need you. You also need them. You are gifted. You are anointed. You are called by Me to display My power and My glory. Don’t distance yourself from Me. It is a season where I am knitting hearts and connecting you with others. People who are nothing like you will cause you to grow and I will speak through them to you. 

Let go of the regrets. You can’t change the past. You can’t change how things went down. But you can change your future as you surrender and draw nearer to Me. Don’t fight My hands. Let me lead you. Come out of the depression. Throw off the shame and the guilt. Come into the light. My grace is sufficient. Let me reveal Myself to you. Let the love of the Father fill your heart. You are safe My child. Do not be afraid. Things that are good and new are coming.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. -Hebrews 12:1-2

There is a grace for you to finish fast and to finish strong. I am accelerating the miraculous because a key to releasing the miraculous is thanksgiving and gratitude. I am doing a deep work of healing in your heart. It may be tempting to look at what you have lost after you let go, but remember that I have even greater things waiting for you in your next season. Don’t look back. Fix your eyes on what is ahead. Many things that seemed to take forever will suddenly take off as you step out by faith. The resistance and the delays are being removed in this season. The Lord is going to use the resistance as a launching pad to propel you into your destiny. You will go further. You will go farther. You will go faster. You will be unstoppable because I am for you and if I am for you, then who can be against you?

Prophetic Declaration 

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. -Romans 8:28

The delays are over. The resistance will be used for your good because you love God and are called according to His purpose. You may not understand everything. It requires faith. It requires being ok with the fact that He is God and He knows exactly what we need and when we need it. Move in faith with a seed of $28, $280, $2,800 for Romans 8:28. As you sow, you are making a powerful prophetic declaration that you are accepting that God is going to work it all for your good. Sow today and help us advance the Gospel. Stay connected to the prophetic flow being released through our ministry.

I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying I am stirring the prophetic in the hearts of My children like never before. I am igniting a childlike faith on the inside of you.

My love will permeate the deep places of your heart where I long to release My healing power. I am breaking off the shame, the guilt, and the condemnation that has tried to attach itself to you. Just like Elijah, I am calling you out of the cave. 

I will come to you with showers of My glory. I will rain upon your parched dry soul. For I have heard your cries. I have seen your struggle. I have felt your desperation. I not only respond by fire but I also respond by rain. The downpours of heavens goodness are on the horizon.

Allow your mind to be renewed by the power of My Spirit. Just as I open up the eyes of the blind I am opening up your eyes to see Me at work in your life. 

All that I have done that you have not seen will manifest. I will show you My miraculous provision. I will show You that I hold all things in My hands. I never let you go. I never left your side. At times when you felt I wasn’t near and things got dark, understand that I was right there with you. Not everything that happened to you was My will. However, I will work all things for your good. I am a very present help in your time of need. There is none like Me. I am the One who was, who is and is to come and I am for you, My child.

Even as it rains, dance in the rain. I am restoring My joy to you. I am causing My hope to be awakened in you. Even the dreams that you gave up on will come alive on the inside of you in this season. This is a season when as you wait upon Me, I will do for you what no one else can. For those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength and rise up with wings like eagles. So rise up My child on eagles wings. Rise up into new dimensions of My glory. Rise up to new levels of the anointing. In Me you can live, you can move, and you can have your being.

Step into the fullness of what I have called you to. Do not hold back. Do not have any reservations. Do not doubt. I have a plan for your life. Your future is so bright. Your best days are ahead of you! Believe in yourself and believe in Me because My gifts and callings are without repentance. I love you, My child. I long to do amazing things through you. Follow Me and you will find true life and significance. 

Prophetic Declaration 

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” -Jeremiah 29:11

As God gave me the prophetic word I felt the weighty “kabod” glory fill my room like few times I have ever experienced. It is so thick. God’s anointing is drenched on every word, every single letter, and syllable. His words bring life. God has a powerful plan and destiny for your life. Move in faith today for the Gospel with a seed of $29.11, $291.10, or $2,911 for Jeremiah 29:11. As you sow, you are making a prophetic declaration unto the Lord reminding Him of His promise to you. This is your promise. I declare over you that God is going to prosper in November like never before! He is going to show you the hope you have in Him, and will reveal to you your future. The mysteries of the Kingdom and His secrets belong to you. There is never a better time to sow than when the glory of God is present. Sow today your best gift unto Jesus.

Determining the Timing and Season of Your Prophetic Word

By | Ministry Training, Prophetic Insight, Prophetic Word | One Comment

Have you ever gotten a vision from the Lord about something that he’s calling you to do? Maybe God has placed a dream in your heart to do something really amazing. What about a prophetic word from someone… Have you ever gotten a prophetic word that described your calling?

I know what it’s like to have a calling from the Lord that is big and exciting, that’s been confirmed both by prophetic words, as well as in my dreams and having heard directly from the Lord personally. I know what it’s like to be so stoked for something that God called you to do, that you jump the gun, and attempt to launch out prematurely because you don’t understand the timing.

I think we would all agree, that when God speaks a word to you, gives you a dream, shows you what your calling is, etc. that it’s one of the most exhilarating feelings in the entire world. When you know something you’re called to do, or you have a word that something is going to come to pass, it is so enthralling that you just want it NOW.

How do I know this? Ha! This perfectly describes how I’ve felt every time God has shown me something good that will come to pass or that I’m called to do. God shows me something cool He wants to do through me, I get stoked, and then I immediately want it ALL…. Right NOW.

It would be like me telling my kids we’re going to Disney World in 2 years. I would have to hear them talk about it for 2 fully years, possibly every single day. They would probably begin packing their bags like the very next day.

Can you relate?! Perhaps all of us can, at some point or another.

I used to get so aggravated with people who would try to tell my husband and I that we were pushing something to happen too early. It frustrated me to no end to be told that we were out of the right season, even though God was genuinely calling us to do those things. “Surely they were just dream killers who wanted to steal our joy and keep us from doing great things for God. Maybe they were just jealous of our calling,” were the types of thoughts that may rolled through my head at some point or another.

Most of the time I’m sure some of these people were just trying to teach me or equip me, but I didn’t receive it because I didn’t want anything to stand in my way of obeying God.

The truth is that when God puts a dream inside you, or calls you to do something, normally there is a season that this dream or calling is intended to be birthed in. Not everything God shows you is supposed to happen immediately, tomorrow or next week.

Most often, when God shows you something tremendous that He is calling you into, there is a season of preparation that follows.

There are things God showed me 7 years ago, that we are JUST NOW getting the green light to step into. That doesn’t mean I didn’t TRY LIKE CRAZY to make it happen before it was supposed to.

The “Danger” of Being Out of Timing

Here’s the deal, I’m going to say this real quick before I launch into explaining how to determine the timing and season of a word: I do believe that there is such a thing as the “right” season for a word, calling, or dream to be birth, but I’m not sure there is always an immense *danger* in being so excited and hungry for the things of God that you attempt to jump the gun.

The reason I say this is because a lot of people tried to instill a FEAR into my husband and I. We have always loved the Lord passionately and we’ve always been ready to jump when God says jump. We’ve always moved in radical obedience to God. I believe our sincere desire to obey God in everything is something that should never be stamped out of anyone. Some people only learn about seasons and timing from being out of season and jumping the gun.

Like us, many others tend to learn best the hard way (trial and error). The times that we were pressured with fear and manipulation, it’s possible that it was coming from people who were trying to help us, or from a  leader not understanding the true character of God. What I mean is they probably meant well.

God is not some big bad mean abusive father who is just waiting on us to step out of line so He can whip us with the belt. God wasn’t going to smite us for loving Him so much that we tried to obey Him but in the wrong season. Instead, what we did experience was God lovingly being our safety net. Over and over again.

The times that we tried to venture out too early, God truly did bless us and use it as a learning experience. He didn’t chastise us or ridicule us. He didn’t leave us on our own. He rewarded our passion for Him, and also He corrected us lovingly and helped us get back in the right place for that season.

Timing and Season

With all that being said, let’s jump into me explaining some of the things I learned about how to determine what kind of season you’re in, and the proper timing for a prophetic word to come to pass. Here are helpful things I’ve learned that help me to determine the seasons and timing of prophetic words for me. I do not have this perfected. I’m fairly certain that no-one anywhere does, but some of us do a better job of adulting. I am still to this day an extremely passionate person, but there are certain indicators I look for in order to make sure it’s the right season for the word.

1. Ask yourself these questions: How did I receive this word? (because that does matter) Is it the first time I’ve ever gotten this prophetic word? Does it align with what I have already been hearing from God?

You might even be wondering why any of this would even matter. I’ve found that in my own life, normally if a drastic change is going to place, or God is about to commission us to go do something big, different or life changing, then God will confirm it. The types of confirmations, and how rapidly they take place, tell me a little about how quickly things are going to transpire/are supposed to unfold.

For example, when God called us to plant a church, first we had received a prophetic word about it, then Rene and I started getting clues during our prayer life, next was a few dreams, and then I asked for a specific confirmation from God. God confirmed, and we moved to obey what God was saying. This all unfolded in about 6 months, but we had already been youth pastors for 5 years.

To someone attempting to discern the season that a particular prophetic word is in, I would say that it does matter how quickly confirmation came, and how rapidly you are getting these confirmations. Are all your confirmations from within you? Run this by a leader that you trust to speak into your life as well.

2. Take some steps towards the word, and see what happens. Depending on what God is calling you to do, this can look different, but in my life what’s happened is that when God has called me to do something, if I was unsure of the timing, what I would do is take some steps towards that word, and listen to Holy Spirit as I take those steps.

As my mentor Doug Addison always says, “Peace is the best fleece”. When you take those steps towards the word, do you feel peace, or did you feel anxious and out of order? Anything but peace could be an indicator that it just isn’t the right season to do that yet, and you can trust that God will stir that dream up again when it’s the right season.

At this point you may be wondering what I mean when I say “take a few steps towards the prophetic word”. Let me unpack that for a second. If God has called you to be a missionary in the Philippines, but you live in the U.S. right now, “taking some steps” towards that word may look like checking out a book from your local library to learn more about Philippine culture. It might look like you enrolling in language classes or applying for your passport.

Obviously your “few steps” will look very differently, depending on what God has called you to do, but my point is that when you are taking these steps toward your calling, you should hear Holy Spirit, or at least be getting nudges that you’re either on track (peace, joy, fulfillment, a straight up word from God saying something like “yes, you’re on track”), or you may be feeling uneasy, stressed out and nervous. These are indicators, and they shouldn’t be ignored or pushed aside.

3. You live and you learn. One way to grow in discernment of the time and seasons in your life is to just live your life. Obey God to the best of your ability. I believe God will grow you throughout your lifetime, and sometimes we learn through trial and error. Mistakes don’t mean you’re necessarily in disobedience to God. I believe there have been times when God made room for me to make mistakes because it was part of training me and growing me to discern the seasons and timing with more maturity and experience.

My own journal has been crucial to my growth. I look back sometimes and realize that I was so caught up in what I wanted, that I didn’t even take the time to discern the season I was in, or if the timing was right. God showed me a peek of something and I wanted it so bad that I went for it.

4. This one is the biggest. If you don’t hear anything else, hear this: JUST ASK GOD. Seriously, ask if this is the right season to move forward in the thing that you feel Him calling you into. God may not answer you immediately and audibly, but He WILL begin guiding you into the answer, which might involve you implementing 1-3 of my suggestions.
But just think, if God shows you the timing first thing when you ask (this has totally happened to me once in a prophetic dream… when I asked God the timing, he literally showed me a calendar in that dream, and the timing was spot on), then you will have it all cleared up and it will save you a lot of time and trouble!

Pregnant with a Promise

Finally, here’s my last piece advice to you to help you discern the seasons and timing of your prophetic word: I’ve found that in my own life, a huge calling or prophetic word coming to pass usually comes to pass in my life similarly to a pregnancy.

With a pregnancy, there are signs that indicate that I am pregnant. There are things that happen that indicate to me that I am pregnant. Next, there are confirmations that I seek out. I might confirm with a pregnancy test, and then schedule an appointment with my doctor or midwife who is an expert in the field. This is very similar to how I might react to a prophet word. If I receive a prophetic word of a huge calling on my life, the first thing I would likely do is seek confirmation and then go to someone I trust and see as a leader in my life.

After a pregnancy is confirmed, a woman’s body goes through many changes over the next 10 months, although none are as drastic as the one that takes place when she finally has birthed her baby. Each of these changes take her one step closer to welcoming that beautiful baby.

Here are some notable changes that happen, and things that must be done when a woman is pregnant:

  • Preparations must be made (buy a car seat, read some books, buy diapers, plan whether to breast feed or not, make a birthing plan, decide where to give birth, decide whether or not to use medication, etc)
  • Her body physically changes in these months. Obviously a baby is growing but also her breasts will begin to produce milk in preparation to nourish a baby.
  • In around the last trimester, a woman goes into something called nesting. When a mother is nesting, there is an internal drive inside her to clean, organize and prepare the last minute things before her baby is born.
  • The baby will drop towards the final stages before labor and delivery.

In many ways, a person who has a calling on their life (all of us) will go through similar changes in the season of preparation for their calling. Now I’m not saying your preparation will be 10 months, either. Might be more! Might be less, but I am able to watch how quickly things are unfolding and get a better idea of how SOON to be expecting things, and what I need to do on my part.

I pray immense blessing over you as you seek the timing for your prophetic word or calling to come forth. I pray that ultimately, you would grow in intimacy with God, and hear the voice of Holy Spirit more clearly than ever.

No matter what God has called you to do, above all you are a son or daughter. That is your identity. You don’t have to strive to receive God’s approval. You may just abide in His love. Your identity is not rooted in your calling. Your identity is in knowing that you are God’s beloved child.

I believe in the call of God on your life so much that I am inviting you to take part in the Prophetic Round Table, a program created by my husband and I, with the intent of supporting people who want to launch out in to their destiny, go deeper into the prophetic, and awaken their spiritual life.

You Are Coming Out Of Your Dry Season!

By | Breaking News, Prophetic Insight | 3 Comments

When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst, I the Lord will answer them; I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers on the bare heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys. I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will put in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia, the myrtle, and the olive. I will set in the desert the cypress, the plane and the pine together, that they may see and know, may consider and understand together, that the hand of the Lord has done this, the Holy One of Israel has created it. -Isaiah 41:17-20

I hear the Lord saying that you are coming out of your dry season. Where there has been a drought I am releasing the waters of My Spirit to saturate your soul. Though the enemy tried to get you give up and the burdens have been heavy, God says I am about to cause all your cares to roll off your back like water rolls off a duck’s back!

The downpour of My Spirit is about to flood your being. I am releasing showers of My blessings upon you. I am quenching your thirsty soul with My love and My goodness. Only I can satisfy you. My love is pure and undefiled. Do not try to satisfy yourself with the love this world has to offer. Come to the waters and drink. There is more than enough!

I am sending supernatural provision and financial breakthrough like nothing you have seen before! I am calling you out of lack and poverty! Get ready to access new dimensions of wealth and supernatural increase that you have only dreamed of. On those who have been faithful, I am releasing the funds to further your calling. I am raising up sons and daughters in these days who are quick to obey My voice. I am raising up sons and daughters who know My heart and love the people. As you did to the least of these you did unto me. My eyes are on those who leave the ninety-nine for the one. As you release My love, there will be a continual flow from Heaven. My goodness and My blessings will overwhelm you. You will be completely overtaken by My love. Get ready to experience the bliss of My presence!

In this season, I am releasing the companionship you have desired. I will give you the desires of your heart as you delight yourself in Me. Don’t over analyze it. Simply trust the leading of My Spirit. My sheep know My voice and another voice they will not follow. Do things My way and you will experience a powerful demonstration of My faithfulness and My goodness.

Prepare yourself and position yourself because this is a season where what you lost you are about to get it back! The drought is over! The season of lack is over! You have made it! you have crossed over into the land of the living! Step out of the wilderness and step into your promise land says the Lord! 

I hear the Lord saying I am releasing angels to untie legal matters. I see the gavel of Heaven coming down and God ruling in Your favor! Your case has been heard in the Courts of Heaven! Get ready to receive settlements, custody, visitation, restitution, reimbursements, and for some even case dismissed!

I am breaking every curse even those that are generational in Jesus name! My blood flows through your bloodline. My blood covers the land where you travel. My Spirit is going before you and making the crooked ways straight. I will exalt you as you go lower still. For the way up is down. Know My ways. Know Me and I will show you the mysteries of My Kingdom.

Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it.” -Jeremiah 1:12

Prophetic Declaration

I declare and decree that the dry season is over in Jesus name! Every hindrance is broken. All warfare is now canceled. Every principality coming against you is now pushed back in Jesus name! I declare over you that you God’s prosperity and goodness is making you whole spiritually, emotionally, physically, relationally, and financially! Nothing is missing! Nothing is broken! Receive fresh fire and a fresh anointing and empowerment of the Spirit’s power in Jesus name! 

What a precious anointing is flowing! I know you can feel it too! It is so tangible. God is changing your life. Faith without works is dead. I don’t believe you can buy a miracle. I don’t believe you can buy the anointing. But you can partner with it. You can align yourself with His prophetic flow that is flowing straight from the Throne Room today. It is a not a money matter. It is a heart matter. It is about honor. Honor sustains the anointing. Move in faith with a seed of $44, $144, or $444,  or whatever amount the Lord is laying on your heart ending in 44 as a prophetic declaration that you are coming out of your dry season. It is all for the Gospel and as you sow, I am believing with you for a 100 fold harvest returned to you within 30 days. I would sow your seed right now while it is fresh on your mind.

When God Speaks on the Playground

By | Prophetic Insight, Prophetic Word, Relationships, Uncategorized | No Comments

Last week was school picture day for my girls. They looked so cute! I fixed their hair, helped them with their outfits, and even trimmed my middle daughter’s bangs (you couldn’t even tell they weren’t trimmed at the salon!).

Moments after their school buses drove away, I realized that even though I had gone to such great lengths to make sure my girls were fresh, clean (my son’s picture day was a different week), and putting their best foot forward, I had forgotten to fill out the order form for the pictures, including the payment.

I decided that when I went to town to run errands, I would simply drop by the school office and fill those out, which I did.

On my way out of the school, there appeared to be a small P.E. class out by the playground, running a race. And it was here that God shifted my paradigm.

Most of the kids had finished their race and were sitting in the grass while the P.E. teacher stood waiting for the last two little guys to cross the finish line. One of the boys in particular (we’ll call him Johnny) still had a good distance to go, and was trudging very slowly with a red face and a sweaty forehead.

I heard one of the boys seated in the grass yell out, “Gosh Johnny, hurry up!” The girl seated next to him in the grass gasped and said, “Don’t say that to him. Say THIS: C’mon Johnny, you can do it! You can make it! Run fast! You’ve got this!”

It was at this point that something amazing took place. You see, when the first child yelled, “Gosh Johnny, hurry up!”, all he did was make Johnny ashamed for making everyone wait.

But when the second child began to yell “C’mon Johnny, you can do it! You can make it! Run fast! You’ve got this!”, a fire lit up in Johnny’s heart.

Johnny just needed someone to believe in him. Johnny needed someone to believe that he could do it. And he could do it. A glimmer came into Johnny’s eyes and he ran with all his might towards the finish line. He was clearly red-faced and tired, but because someone believed in him, he could finish his race with vigor.

There are people like Johnny all over. They are tired and ready to quit. People say hurtful things to them. People lose patience with them and lash out at them in exasperation. These people are ready to throw in the towel and just quit.

We can be like that first child, and be impatient with them, or we can be like the second and stoke the fires of their faith once more.

I believe God is calling us to call out the destiny within people. I believe God is calling us to yell, “Come on! You’ve got this! You’re not gonna quit! You’re made of tougher stuff than this! You’re a warrior! You were chosen for such a time as this!”

Maybe you’re reading this and you identify more with little Johnny than anyone else in the story. Maybe there’s no child #2 in your life to shout encouragement for you. I know what it’s like to be where you’re at. I know how discouraging it can be, but I believe with all my heart that if you listen closely, right now you would hear Holy Spirit saying this to you:

“Come on! You’ve got this! You’re not gonna quit! You’re made of tougher stuff than this! You’re a warrior! You were chosen for such a time as this!”

Alcohol and Christians

By | Ministry Training, Teaching | No Comments

I never really actually wanted to write this blog. In fact, I put it off for years now. Why? Well partially because I don’t like confrontation and I’m a recovering people pleaser! lol. I knew this one would be a controversial article.

So why did I decide to finally write it? Well here’s the deal, as much as I may not want to really be offensive, this subject of alcohol consumption seems to come up over and over. Since my I lead a ministry with my husband that many people follow, and many people trust my teachings, they reach out to me time and time again to ask what our position is on this topic.

Christians argue and divide over this topic everyday, so I want to state this up front: I refuse to be divided over this subject. If you’ve studied the Bible and come to a different conclusion than I have, then you’re welcome to your opinion. This article is my position on this subject based off of 10+ years of studying the Bible and seeking God on the issue.

My husband and I do drink alcohol sometimes. We see no problem with Christians responsibly consuming alcohol with moderation and using wisdom.

We believe the Bible supports this, and that is the real subject that I want to discuss. My opinion is completely useless if it’s not supported by the Bible, so let’s jump right in.

When I first got saved I was strongly opposed to any alcohol consumption for Christians. I was taught that it was wrong and that was that. I changed my stance on drinking after studying the things that I will present to you here in this article.

We entered the ministry about 10 years ago as youth pastors, and all the leaders who we worked with at that time also opposed alcohol consumption. We were taught that during the times that Jesus walked the earth, the wine didn’t have any alcohol content at all, or at least that it was much less than the wine that exists today.

First of all, Jesus and the disciples all drank wine that did contain alcohol, and I can back that up with scripture.

In fact, Jesus’s first miracle was turning water into wine. The Bible is very specific about this miracle. So specific in fact that we know from the wording that Jesus did change the water into wine with alcohol content. Jesus turned the water into STRONG wine.

John 2: 2-10 On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, “They have no wine.”

Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.”

Now there were set there six water pots of stone, according to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece. Jesus said to them, “Fill the water pots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, “Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.” And they took it. When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom. And he said to him, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!”

So what was being said here? When the master of the feast tasted of the wine, he praised the bridegroom by saying that NORMALLY when a large party is thrown, the host will start with the good wine, the strong wine, and then when everyone is good and buzzed, they then present the weaker (cheaper) wine. Unlike those hosts, the bridegroom was being praised for saving this good stronger wine until last, not knowing that it was actually JESUS who performed a miracle by turning the water into wine.

Based off this story alone, I think it’s super safe to say not only that Jesus didn’t condemn alcohol consumption, but also that the alcohol did indeed contain alcohol.

In fact, the art of pasteurizing grape juice in order to stop the fermentation process was not even in existence until 1869 when Thomas Welch invented this method.

I’ve heard other arguments that based off of Ephesians 5:17, Christians should not consume alcohol.

Ephesians 5:17 So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit…..

To that I would reply that there’s a big difference between drinking wine, and drinking to get drunk. I would agree that there are risks involved with getting drunk. Judgement can be impaired, and people can make regrettable decisions. My response is that people should use wisdom.

Also I would caution that people who have struggled with alcoholism should use proper wisdom and discernment. If I were counseling someone who maybe just got saved, or maybe they only now just decided to break the addiction of alcohol in their life, I would counsel them to abstain from wine completely AT LEAST for an extended season. It may be that this person abstains from alcohol for the rest of their life, and if they need to then they absolutely should.

I also recommend that Christians who do consume alcohol should not be purposefully offensive, nor should they be a stumbling block to their brother or sister. If you know that your friend struggles with alcohol addiction, it is unwise and unloving to *knowingly* drink in front of them, because it could trigger them to fall back into the addiction they seek freedom from.

In 1 Timothy 5:23, the Apostle Paul writes Timothy with lots of sound wisdom and various instructions. One of those instructions I find very interesting in light of the discussion we are having here today.

1 Timothy 5:23 Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses.

Paul is instructing Timothy not just to drink water, but also drink some wine for his stomach issues. This actually makes sense, nutritionally speaking. Here’s why: In your stomach there are bacteria. This is called gut flora. To have a healthy gut flora, you need a good balance of healthy bacteria in your stomach. Wine and other fermented foods/drinks contain probiotics, which are live microorganisms (bacteria) that may be able to help prevent and treat some illnesses.

Nowadays there are other ways to get probiotics other than wine, but this verse does offer us an example of one of Jesus’s early disciples condoning alcohol consumption.

The idea that alcohol consumption is sinful is very unique to the United States. My Christian ministry friends who live in other parts of the world scratch their head with the oddity of demonizing alcohol to the point that it is when the Bible does speak quite candidly on the topic. There are plenty of reasons to choose not to consume alcohol, but the “Bible forbidding it” is not one of them.

I do not write any of this in order to try to convince anyone to drink alcohol, or to condone my own alcohol consumption. I couldn’t care less whether people approve or not because I feel it is a private issue, however I do want to dispel some myths that circulate within the Christian churches.

If you do prefer to abstain from alcohol, I want you to know that I support that decision completely. What I do not support is the teaching that the Bible forbids alcohol consumption or that it is a sin for Christians to drink alcohol. Based off of the specific scriptures I presented here in this article, that is untrue and is not rooted in truth.

God bless you as you walk in all wisdom and truth.

Prophetic Word for October 2017!

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. -Genesis 1:27
 

I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying that He is releasing creative power from Heaven to His children to create their destinies. I am pouring out out a fresh anointing upon My children. The Lord says that where there has been a struggle my anointing shall make the difference. Every hinderance and delay will exist no more. My grace is flooding your lives. You will sense the sweetness of My presence as you abide in Me says the Lord.

I have called you to do great things. I have not forsaken you. I am with you and I am for you. You are My child, and I will do amazing things in and through you. It is a season where you must move when I say move. I am raising up a people who will be quick to obey the promptings of My Spirit.

That which you have not seen but asked for you will see in this season. You will see the full manifestation of that which you have asked of Me if you do not doubt and believe in your heart with child like faith.

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. -Hebrews 11:3

 

You are receiving revelation as you read this prophetic word of the power that dwells within you. Christ in you is the hope of glory. My Spirit within you and upon you has given you the power you need to create your future. As you build My Kingdom you will please me. I will bless you beyond your wildest dreams. I will give you the desires of your heart as you delight yourself in Me. I will satisfy your hunger and quench your thirst. Awaken out of apathy. Rise up from that bed and move into your place of purpose.

You are being filled right now by My Spirit as you receive everything that Heaven is releasing upon you in Jesus name! Take dominion and establish My Kingdom. My glory will cover you. Others will sense the holiness of My presence and be in a deep awe of who I am. I will bless the works of your hands. I will empower you to move forward. I will open your eyes to see what I need you to see. I will send you where I want you to go.

I am opening up doors that were once shut. I am giving you a divine strategy to move in My power and in My glory. I am connecting you with the right people. There are new alignments being made. I am releasing the people who are called to take you to your next level. 

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

 

My glory will be made great. The whole earth will know of My great power and unconditional love. I am raising up sons and daughters who represent Me well. They will love with My love. For I have loved you with an everlasting love. My grace is sufficient for you. My glory abides in My Son who abides in you. You are My sons and daughters. You are royalty. You are Mine and I am yours.
