Dear Friends, Intercessors and Zion Aligned:
For the first time in history, we celebrated Pentecost 2008, 5768. I also enjoyed my best birthday ever. Being 55 has a great benefit in that I was blessed to read Isaiah 55 again and have the Lord remind me "that His ways are not my ways!" You have a GLORY in you that the Lord is trying to unlock. You are being reformed so that GLORY can be seen by others and you become favored to transform your sphere.
THE SPOON OF GOD IS STIRRING THIS LAND
One word that came forth this past weekend at our Pentecost Gathering had to do with the Lord "taking His spoon and stirring the mud of Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and other states in the Midwest/central part of our nation." I saw the mud and the Lord said, "I will take My spoon and stir and stir and reform this portion of our nation." This was on Friday.
Then the rains began. Here is a word from Francis Frangipane: "As some of you are aware, we are experiencing major flooding here in Iowa, especially in downtown Cedar Rapids, but also in other communities as well. The flooding here is at 'historic' levels, yet it is still mostly limited to areas along the rivers in Cedar Rapids. As I write, I was just notified that Homeland Security has just closed the main highways and bridges into and through Cedar Rapids. This weather/flooding is being hailed as a '500 year flood.'"
After releasing this word from the Lord, I went to our book, "Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation." This is the only historic, prophetic book we have. I reviewed the prophecies recorded over these central states. When Dutch Sheets and I went to Wisconsin, the Lord said, "This will be My RIVER STATE. Watch when all the rivers rise!" If you do not have this book, I encourage you to purchase a copy and use it as a prayer and watchman guide. These are such interesting times.
I have been meditating on the power of our Creator to create. The hovering power of the Spirit of God and the speaking voice of our Creative Lord can break any power of chaos around us and create a new order out of our confusion. If you do not know Him, know that He created you with a purpose and desires to commune with you. He is the Executive Director of the earth.
Many of us do not recognize that all that happens in our lives will work toward His best and will become of ultimate benefit to us if we will only submit and praise. The more you align with His creative power, the less anxiety you will experience. Listen deeply within your heart and spirit for His voice. All He does is for your good. If you will listen, you will sense a peace that goes beyond any human calmness.
We must guard ourselves from high levels of stress. Many of our health problems are a result of stress and anxiety. If we will listen to and submit ourselves to Him in chaotic situations, circumstances, and overall atmospheric upheavals, we will find our lives aligning with the God who created us who can work order in the midst of confusion.
We must strive to experience joy in doing His will. Remove discouragement from your vocabulary! If you will do that, you will find that the flaws in your character and your faulty self-image will realign with God's best. You will then have strength to reach goals you could never attain through human reasoning, self-evaluations, and personal judgments. This is a season for you to see the best that the Lord has placed in you.
This Tuesday in prayer, the Lord gave me Psalm 16:5-11: "O LORD, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup! You maintain my lot. I will bless the LORD who has given me counsel. My heart also instructs me in the night seasons. I have set the LORD always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices! My flesh also will rest in hope...You will show me the path of life! In Your presence is fullness of joy!"
You have a Glory in you that the Lord is calling forth. Let YOUR GLORY rejoice and watch the iniquities in your bloodline flee.
When we admit we are weak, then we will discover the strength of the nations.
I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless. Isaiah 13:11 (NIV)
It's an indictment on our nation when we puff up our chest in the face of our enemies and make trite, inaccurate statements about our supposed strength. American pride is finally coming back to haunt us. Our haughty, arrogant spirit has opened the gates of our nation to our enemies.
No, America, we are not strong, and we need to finally admit it. Without a radical devotion to Jesus, we have no hope.
"If you want to go to a new level prophetically, there is a whole new birthing of the prophetic anointing and of My prophetic mantle. A new mantle of the prophetic is forming and being imparted. I am redefining the prophetic gift that flows from heaven through this Divine connection to you. You're not just going to come and dip your prophetic torch, but you will become a fire that will not go out! You will be a fire starter! The torch of revelation that I am bringing to and through you, will 'fire' many. You have been laboring in the prophetic vineyard, but now is the time to start producing prophetic wine."
I heard the Spirit saying, "Now is the time to shed the skin of false identity and put on your true identity." It is time to allow the Lord to help you shake off any false identity that you have been wrapped in, clothing you in misrepresentation of who God created you to be. You have been fashioned in His image and the Holy Spirit lives within you; He is there to do great and mighty things through your life. His Spirit reveals the love of the Father to you, reveals truth to you, and empowers you to resist the devil and his lies.
