There is restoration for my people. You have been stripped bare. You have felt the hunger pangs of an empty soul. Your body has become lean and your spirit thirsty for Me. You have watched as the wicked, those godless ones, have prospered. You have heard their rejoicing and riling.

You ask, "Why are our bodies lean, our souls held captive, and our spirit's quieted? Let us come before our God and proclaim this acceptable year. Let us fill our bodies with His Goodness, our souls with His Peace and our spirit to overflowing with the Ruach HaKodesh, His Holy Spirit. Let us now move into His place of abundance and be filled. Let's seek His Face and know His Divine Presence. Yes, we are the called of God. We are repositioning into His Holy Mountain and His Mighty Kingdom."

Come before me, my children, and be filled. Bow before me and be anointed for my service. Fall prostrate before me and learn true humility in My Presence.

I await your return.

"Then spoke Elisha unto the woman, whose son he had restored to life, saying, Arise, and go you and your household, and sojourn wherever you can sojourn; for the Lord has called for a famine, and it shall also come upon the land seven years. And it came to pass at the seven years' end, that the woman returned out of the land of the Philistines, and she went to appeal unto the king for her house and for her land. My lord, O king, this is the woman, and this is her son, whom Elisha restored to life. And when the king asked the woman, she told him. So the king assigned unto her a certain officer, saying, Restore all that was hers, and all the fruits of the field since the day that she left the land, even until now."
II Kings 8: 1, 3, 5-6



04/28/09

Gather yourselves my children and speak of the things to come. They are times of great sorrow but also the greatest blessing. Share the hope that is within you. Garner hope from one another; speak of My Great Love. Your words may start a flame and set a heart ablaze for My Kingdom.

Invite My Spirit in your midst. Receive all He has to give to over-flowing. Enter into My Holy Presence. Stay awhile. Soak for a time until cleansed, refreshed and renewed. 

"Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from Thy Presence, and take not Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of Thy Salvation, and uphold me with a free spirit. Then will I teach transgressors your ways, and sinners shall be converted unto you."
Psalm 51: 10-13



04/27/09

Take your places. Stay immersed in My Word. Come against all the wiles of satan by the full armor that you must engage. It has been provided to protect your whole being; body, soul and spirit. Continue to reapply when under attack. Open your spiritual eyes to see in the unseen for this is where the battle rages. Do not be caught off guard, as there is heavy artillery.

Remember the battle is Mine and I Am the All-Powerful One. It is My Blood that is applied and My Name that is proclaimed. There is no other name given under heaven whereby salvation comes. There is no king to match My Power and no earthly throne to match My Eternal Kingdom.  Lift up My Name; proclaim My Kingdom is come and My Will is done.

Go forth my good and faithful servants.

"And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have you done this? Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by Him does this man stand here before you well. Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
Acts: 4: 7, 10, 12

"Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."
Ephesians 6: 11-17

IT HAS BEGUN

The preparation is complete. Warriors are in place. Foot soldiers have been notified. Warring angels are in battle array. The shift has taken place. In prior phases the sifting was mandated and my cream came to the top. I have skimmed the best; I know my anointed ones. You have battle scars; but you walk without a limp. You have been called casualties of war; but you stand strong. You moved mountains with the mustard seeds I implanted. You have fought off all the fiery darts and are ready for the real battle ahead. You have set aside your desires for mine; you have left all for My sake.

You are ready and it has begun.

"For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same, My Name shall be great among the nations, and in every place incense shall be offered unto My Name, and a pure offering; for My Name shall be great among the nations, says the Lord of Hosts."
Malachi 1: 11



04/19/09

There is a greater anointing for my children. It is to accomplish my perfect will on the earth with a greater zeal. Step forth in this anointing; do not shy away. Do not think that it is only for my elite servants. Yes, they are given special anointings to meet the needs of their ministries, but you too can be filled. Come forth with cupped hands anticipating all I can give.

You have wanted to move higher, to elevate to the next level, but could not find the power within. Look to My Provision and My Coffers for they are ready to be poured out. Seek me as you have never sought me. Press in and forge forward equipped with My Anointing for the task ahead. If it is for My Glory, it will be provided. If it is to show forth My Power, it will appear. Do not underestimate this anointing.

It is for those who seek after such things.

"Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people; but the Lord shall arise upon you, and his glory shall be seen upon you. And the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising."
Isaiah 60: 1-3



04/16/09

Love is the theme today. There are many lonely and afraid. Look into their eyes to see how deep it goes. Be not afraid to connect with these and make it a matter of prayer. You can show forth my love and peace.

Do you think you have nothing to give? Do you think I haven't implanted on the inside of you something they need? Yes, you are my light in this world. Illuminate all I have given to you. This love and light will show their pain. Be ready to give them a reason for your hope in my salvation.

Salvation to save in all areas.

"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear."
 
I Peter 3: 15



04/15/09

This season marks the time of eagerly awaiting the enduement of power that was promised. Yes eagerly my disciples looked forward to this infilling. They had seen my power and acts of miracles and knew I had promised this to them. This power would catapult their ministries and drive the proclaiming of my gospel to the world.

Look forward, my children, to an even greater awakening; a greater outpouring. This has been prophesied for my endtime harvest. My glory will manifest in unlikely places; it will fill halls and meeting places. Seek this infilling for My service. Greater miracles will you perform; greater manifestations of My Spirit will you witness. Cry out in earnest for this; anguish in your soul to be filled. Step forward in your destiny endued and renewed.

I will not leave you powerless.

"And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry you in the city of Jerusalem, until you be endued with power from on high."
Luke 24: 49

"And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: and also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke."
Joel 2: 28-30



04/14/09

Let it be enough. Let all I have accomplished be enough to draw you to My throne. There is sweet communion there; there is strength there. As my children who have received me, you can be immersed in My Spirit. My Word is truth and it is Spirit; let it be enough.

In today's world these are gluttonous times. Enough is never enough. More is better. Accumulation is the theme of the day. Work harder and build bigger barns. Strategically place this stuff in every nook and cranny. Reverse the curse of this mindset. Learn contentment in whatever state you are in. Be at peace with the place I have brought you. Calm your mind and be at rest finally. It is at this place of rest where I can abide with you.

Let us commune at My throne.

"Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy."
I Timothy 6: 6-9; 17



04/09/09

Many will call me Savior. Many will call me Lord and friend. Others will cry Abba Father. As we become more intimate and you receive me in every area of your life, our relationship will mesh and we will become one in the Father.

If you hold back and hold on to secret areas that you think I do not know, I cannot fully rule and reign in your life. Remember because I am all knowing, all present, and all powerful there is not an area that I cannot know about, an area I cannot be present, or areas I am not able to save by my power.

Call me Savior, Lord and friend.

"And the scripture was fulfilled which says, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God."
James 2: 23



04/08/09

The night is far spent. The day ahead long and arduous. My obedience paramount; my resolve imperative. As I looked to the cross I must bare, it was with compassion for those who would also see it for their salvation. Many will look and turn away but many more will see it for what it was to be; a place of redemption and sacrifice for their sins. A place to save the sinner and set free the captive.

Look again lest you miss all that is intended. Look again for all the cross bore; a place I surrendered my life to save all who would come and receive this great salvation.

All we like sheep have gone astray.

"He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to is own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all."
Isaiah 53: 3-6



04/07/09

IT IS PASSOVER.

The
 day begins as any day. It is a time of remembrance. My disciples think this is a time as any Feast day. A time to gather and come together. A time of preparation for this day of remembrance once a year. It is all customary; it is familiar. They are glad to once again be in my presence.

Even as the bread is broken and the wine is poured out, they cannot know the true significance. Even as I articulate the truth of my broken body and my blood poured out for them and the world, it holds only symbolism. How can they know what will transpire? How can they envision the horror of the coming days? Nothing or no one could come against the coming events. It is My Father's will. I lay down my life. No one takes it. I could have called my armies to prevent such an act.

All points to my sacrifice. From the first shedding of blood in the garden. Skins that only covered yet revealed the shadow of things to come. The sacrifice of Isaac not needed for only I would suffice. Only My blood would be pure enough; the blood of The Father.

Come and partake. Eat my body and drink my blood as a symbol of what I gave. A sinless, perfect sacrifice. Once for all.

IT IS FINISHED.

"Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoso eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. This is the bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eats of this bread shall live forever."
John 6: 53-54; 58



04/06/09

Draw near to me where intimacy is sweet. It is where I can heal all of life's pain. It is where all fear can be laid down and healed. Be set free from these burdens and find rest in me. You go to and fro seeking help and strength. Find help in me; find strength in my presence. Come before me in your loneliness and I will fill you with my love. Seek me when all else fails; you will find me waiting.

Draw as close to me as you can; then draw nearer still. Turn down the glare of the lights; turn low the blare of the sounds and quietly and peacefully enter in. Step into my presence and I will bathe you in my peace. Gather your thoughts and point them to my name. Whisper my name and sing praises to me. We will then walk hand in hand through this life. Don't let go and I will lead you, as I know the way.

The way to perfect peace.

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on me has everlasting life. I am that bread of life. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world."
John 6: 47, 48; 51



04/02/09

Jesus, The Messiah. There is none like you.

Yo
ur beauty is like the rose. You are the Rose of Sharon.
  Your brightness as the Sun. You are the Light of the world.
Your countenance is full of glory. The glory of the Father.
  Your power is all consuming. You are the Lion of the tribe of Judah.
Your love is supreme. You gave your life as a ransom for many.
  Your grace toward us pure. Your mercy endures forever.
Your majesty fills the heavens. Glory and honor to your Name.
  Your Kingdom is forever. And of His Kingdom there shall be no end.
Your forgiveness is eternal. He remembers our sin no more.
  Your the good Shepherd. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me.
Your the Bread of Life. You provide all our needs.
  Your the Savior of the world. There is none like you.

"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."
Psalm 23
