The Flaming Sword and An Open Door – A 4th Watch Post

In Jerusalem there were those who stood upon the walls of the city to watch to see what was coming. They were the eyes and ears of the city when there was darkness. There were segments with 4th watch being 3 hours before the dawn. Prophetically, they were preparers for the coming dawn for the city. In this day and age, the Lord is asking prophets to prepare the body of Christ for the dawn of a new season by being the eyes and ears…

Why Christians Will Live and Die For Christ

Resurrection day is now several days behind us. I have considered what it must have been like for those who saw the empty tomb and the resurrected Christ. The emotional roller coaster would exceed anything in history. For 40 days about 500 people encountered the resurrected Jesus establishing marking the most earthshaking turning point on earth. Over the centuries naysayers devised conspiracy theories about the empty tomb, yet not a single objective witness ever came forth to say ‘I have…

The Warrior Class

Ephesians 6:17(NIV) “Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” In the Body of Christ, the church, I see believers that are potential overcomers, potential prophets, and potential victors against the unseen enemy of their soul.  But many deny the enemy, ignore the battle, or refuse to fight. Some simply believe that ‘the battle is the Lords’. Yes, the battle is the Lord’s, and He established victory through the cross and…

Demo the Old, Build the New

In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the Lord spoken by Jeremiah, the Lord moved the heart of Cyrus king of Persia to make a proclamation throughout his realm and also to put it in writing: 2  “This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: “‘The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and He has appointed me to build a temple for Him…

What’s Coming in 2017?

Another parable put He forth before them, saying, “The Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. Matt. 13:24, 25 We move into 2017 with great expectancy and great awareness of the coming days. I have perceived in the fall of 2016 a clarion call to the church for 2017. There will be expectancy toward all…

Celebrating the First AND Second Advent

“For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish…

A November to Remember

2016 has been a tumultuous year in America, especially in politics. Beyond America there were great shifts in Europe with the UK voting to exit the European Union, conservative groups gaining traction in France, Germany and other nations and the emergence of a more Christian worldview. Mass immigration, embraced under the mantle of ‘compassion’, has led to violent sexual assaults, riots in refugee camps, increased gang activity, and efforts by European governments to hide the effects of decades of open…

A Banner for All the People – The Israel Gathering

In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples: the nations will rally to Him, and His resting place will be glorious. Is. 11:10  As you read this America will be voting for their governmental leadership. However I will be worshiping the Lord in Jerusalem alongside brothers and sisters from every continent. I’m at a gathering of several thousand believers from over 30 nations to worship in Spirit and in Truth, to agree with…

Using Discernment in the 2016 Election

But can you not discern the signs of the times? ~Matt. 16:3 I have been pondering what to say about the current elections in America. It is a presidential battle like none that I have experienced since beginning to follow politics in the late 1960’s. Control of the U.S. Senate is also at stake. Christians are very divided. The division is about the destiny and role of the USA in the world and in the Kingdom of God. But I believe…

The US Gathering 2016

A few of the group of leaders who gathered. Gather together and come; assemble you fugitives from the nations. Ignorant are those who carry about idols of wood, who pray to gods that cannot save. Declare what is to be, present it—let them take counsel together. Is. 45:20, 21a I am processing the many things that happened last weekend in Woodland Park, Colorado. We had a 3-day gathering of leaders from states and nations to do the Father’s will for…

The Bridge from Soul to Spirit

For the word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature] exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging, the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. Heb. 4:12 Amplified The amplified version of Hebrews 4:12 brings forth the unfathomable…

What was…and What Will Be

“New wine is being released into those with a new wineskin, a wineskin that is pliable, flexible, and willing to be stretched by kingdom dynamics at work in the church.” Ezra 3:12 But many of the older priests and Levites and family heads, who had seen the former temple, wept aloud when they saw the foundation of the temple being laid, while many others shouted for joy. We live in a day when many in the church are praying and…
