GPS #21.2: God’s voice thunders

PS – LOL!!!  Having just published this and seen its appearance on the home page I note its number (212), which is personally relevant to my life and tonight’s special spiritual anniversary!!

Don’t you just love it when the Lord arranges ‘coincidences’ as His God-incidents, even using them as though His very own GPS (Global Prophecy Signals)?  Many times we’ve noted on this blog that David & Emma Stark’s team at Glasgow Prophecy Centre have their spiritual ears wide open to what the Lord is saying!  

Sitting adjacent to Glasgow’s email notification of their daily Lion Bite in this mornings’ in-tray was one for Sarah Sillitoe’s copy of its content in her two comments upon the word ‘Relinquish Fear’. Therein, the Lord told Leisa Ebere, “…surely I am bringing breakthrough through thunder and lightening and change..”

Leisa emailed me last Saturday but my attending to its attached word got delayed by my working upon an urgent, complicated and extensive repair before rains overnight Tues-Wednesday. Moreover, then having what turned out to be an extremely significant meeting with an author, I couldn’t publish that word until late yesterday afternoon – but the timing was all in the Lord’s hands, as we note once again!

Therefore, may He bless you mightily as you read and weigh:

LION BITES – GOD’S VOICE

God’s voice thunders over many waters; it is powerful and full of majesty, causing the cedars of Lebanon to break and the wilderness to give birth. God’s voice comes with lightning strikes and causes all in the temple to cry ‘Glory!’* With one word to the woman at the well, Jesus released freedom and liberation. With the words ‘Peace be!’ an entire storm was calmed. God’s voice is powerful!

As you declare God’s word, His powerful force invades and causes all things to come into alignment with Him and His rule. Take courage today that you are called and empower to speak life and love into people and atmospheres and see real, tangible change.

Romans 10:8-9

But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, ”that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Praise to God in His Holiness and Majesty

A Psalm of David. 

29 Give unto the Lord, O you mighty ones,
Give unto the Lord glory and strength.
[Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name;
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
The God of glory thunders;
The Lord is over many waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
The voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars,
Yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes them also skip like a calf,
Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.
The voice of the Lord divides the flames of fire.

The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
The Lord shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth,
And strips the forests bare;
And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”

10 The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood,
And the Lord sits as King forever.
11 The Lord will give strength to His people;
The Lord will bless His people with peace.

Habakkuk-style declaration on the EU

Habakkuk 2:1-3 – I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch and see what He will say to me and what I will answer when I am corrected. Then the LORD answered me and said:

“Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.

“For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, it will not lie.

“Though it tarries wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”

On watch...

Am very sure Holy Spirit led me whilst typing the previous post to make the connection between the original tower of Babel and the modern one built by the European Union and what the Lord is similarly going to do. Moreover, a few ‘circumstances’ had created a unscheduled opportunity – ie, ‘God-incident’ – for me to blog briefly on that news!

First, after having been out all morning I planned to put finishing touches to my notes for the evening’s house group, but upon my return I was told it’s postponed! And so I could blog. Secondly, Monday had seen my unscheduled attending the first day of a fully booked up conference as a result of my taking the place of a friend’s friend who was unable to attend. It closed with the speaker inviting everyone to wait on the Lord to hear how He sees each of us. Instantly, I heard an OT’s prophet’s name. Thirdly, my intention of publishing that post was simply to point readers to a news item:

However, it needed a link to the digital version of the material, which had a different title and related picture:

After publishing that news and my very brief Biblical meditation I had a distinct sense its publication acts according to the prophetic principle enunciated by the Old Testament prophet Habakkuk, as above.

“Therefore, like the electro-mechanical power failure of the Brussels-Strasbourg train carrying Members of the European Parliament on the EU’s business, let me DECLARE all ungodly parts of the EU’s functions SEIZE UP and FREEZE UP!”

You may recall Veronika West’s powerful vision of the EU as a glacier. In response a reader informed me that a description of an iceberg had been given in a much older prophetic word. This will be re-published very soon…

AND by way of confirmation of that train’s failure being of the Lord’s hand, this morning I received a prophetic word alluding to a railway system! It appears in this ‘Lion Bite’ from Glasgow Prophetic Centre:

THE FLICK OF A SWITCH

‘Many of you are like a train sitting in a station, preparing to drive away and embark on a new journey. The signalman is flicking the switch to change the points on the railway track and he sets the signal to ‘Go!’.

‘Today God, the Divine Signalman, is setting the points on the track of your life to guide you where He wants to direct you. With the flick of a switch, He’s setting the signal to ‘Go!’.

You may be saying ‘I am willing to go now, but what if I deviate from the track which the Lord has set for me?’ God has flicked the switch, He has determined your course and encourages you out of Isaiah 30:21, ‘Your ears shall hear a word behind you saying, this is the way walk in it, whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.’

So to return to the previous post’s opening question, ‘Is this another sign from heaven?’ The answer is”YES”!

Two prophetic words on a new wind and the armies of heaven

Thank you to Glasgow Prophetic Centre and to UK Prophetic Words for the following published yesterday:

LION BITES: A SECOND WIND OF THE PROPHETIC

God is releasing a wind from Heaven to come and surround you in these days. This is a second wind of the prophetic that will enable you to hear God’s voice with greater clarity; through visions, dreams, encounters, nudges and more. You’re going to start to see and hear more revelation as you get caught up in this wind of the prophetic. As it comes and surrounds you, start to ‘look and see’ what God is doing and ask how you might partner with Him in this work.

So catch this second wind of the prophetic. Start to listen and hear God speak, look and watch Him move. Open your mouth and release your voice and watch what God does.

Ezekiel 37:9-10
Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.

THE LORD IS REGROUPING THE ARMIES OF HEAVEN – GOD IS ABOUT TO COME IN POWER

Chris Bennett writes

I sense a very short lull in the war in the heavenlies. The Lord is regrouping the armies of heaven for a decisive ‘Blitzkrieg’ to clear the way for Holy Spirit to land His invasion of the enemy’s territory. In short, the decks are being cleared for Holy Spirit to come in power among us, bringing revival at a level of power never before witnessed on this earth. Even the parting of the Red Sea for the Israelites fleeing Pharaoh will be realised as minor in comparison to that which is about to be released upon the dark forces of this world.

Chris Bennett, 9th March 2018

Blitzkrieg – an intense military campaign intended to bring about a swift victory.

Today’s Lion Bite: “I have overcome the world and its chaos – so watch!”

Thank you to the Lord and Glasgow’s ‘centre for prophetic excellence’ for the latest:

I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD AND ITS CHAOS

‘The Lord took me up in the spirit, and I saw the entire earth; floods, wars, famines and , yet the Lord said to me with great force,

“Do not worry about such things for I have overcome the world.”

‘He said,

“Keep your eyes fixed on me and not on circumstances in and around you. Choose to look with your spiritual eyes and see what I am doing, for it far outweighs that which is going on in the world. I am bringing order out of chaos; I am calling time on things that are not of me.

“So watch and see what I am going to do!”

John 16:33
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Selah!

Renowned prophet sees devil’s domain in deep disarray

On Friday this video appeared on Emma Stark’s Facebook and subscribers to Glasgow Prophetic Centre’s Lion Bites were emailed ‘You Need To Hear This Word of The Lord’.

I’m grateful to UK Prophetic Words for publishing this transcript (colour-text RB):

‘God said some amazing things to me recently and I wanted you to be the first to know, so that you can be blessed and released to advance at this time.

‘The Lord said to me, “Do you want to see Satan?” And I thought, ‘What a peculiar question!’ and I said, “God, actually, do you know what – no thank you very much!” And God said, “But I’d like to show you Satan,” and I said, “But God, I’d really rather see you.” And He said to me, “Emma, you see Me all the time.”

‘He took me to a place where he lifted back the veil and, for the first time actually ever in my life, I saw Satan in the distance and what absolutely shocked me was how panicked he was! He was pacing the floor. He was so full of anxiety. He was behaving like a truly defeated foe. And I started to hear (or God let me hear) him muttering under his breath, and he was saying “My power is limited; my power is limited.” And he said Leviathan and Jezebel had gone to him – two of his great demonic generals – wanting more power, and he had no more power to give them because of the effectiveness of the prayers of the Saints. And I could hear him say that Leviathan’s teeth had been broken in warfare, and that that strongman was in the process of being overthrown and defeated. And there was such a sense of panic in the enemy camp, and also a sense that the enemy was on the cusp of an internal civil war because of the acknowledgement that they had run out of power.

‘Now you and I know as Christian believers, we don’t need to think in the morning, ‘Oh, do you know I’ve only got five prayers today; what am I going to use them on?’ But actually, Satan does need to think like that because he is a limited being. But at the moment, I believe God is saying to us that his camp is in a crisis like it has never been in for many years. And the sense of panic in Satan’s mind is because he is going to have to take his eye off the earth and off us to deal with his own in-house battles.

‘And I heard the Spirit of the Lord say that this is a time for great victory, where you can take back that which was lost. And the Lord says that Satan’s grip is so loose on some things that where there were some business deals which didn’t come through, some buildings you were supposed to own, some properties you were supposed to move into, some things that were supposed to happen, the Lord is saying that He is loosing over his church an anointing to catch up and to take ground, but also to ‘retake’ that which was already lost. And the Lord spoke the word “CATCH UP!” with such a force that it started to resonate in our thinking and we started to remember where we were supposed to be.

‘So I want to loose that blessing over you right now that God is saying, He is releasing a ‘catch-up’ grace; that the time that you have lost and the things that have been taken are going to come right back into your world right now.

‘And then the Lord started to speak to me about Brexit, in the middle of all of this. And the Lord said this: “You” (you collectively, like, all of us – family) “have prayed for a revival and awakening and reformation in the UK for so long.” And the Lord says, “I have heard the prayers for revival and awakening and reformation.” And the Lord said, “I couldn’t come as close as I wanted to, to the UK, because I had to resist her because she was proud.” And many of us know that, actually, if we were scoring the UK in a pride rating, we would probably score it quite high. And we know from the Word of God that God resists the proud, and we know from the word of God that Leviathan (go and read Job chapter 41 if you want and 42, if you want to read about Leviathan), Leviathan is the strongman demon over pride in the earth.

‘And I heard God say this: “I will allow a bad deal for the UK in BREXIT, and it will bring a humbleness to the nation. And in the humbleness it will be an answer to your prayers, because it will break Leviathan off you. And in the breaking of Leviathan”, the Lord says, “I will rush towards you with revival and awakening that you have prayed for.” And so the Lord says, Do not fear the bad deal, for I am in it, and I am disconnecting you to reconnect you.” And the Lord says that there will be a move of God on the back of the humbleness that is going to come to the UK.

‘I heard the Lord say to the prophets in the land and people of revelation … that He is about to catch you up; that you are going to see regionally, and not just locally, that actually – do you remember when John goes up in Revelation and he sees all the churches of the region? And God says, at this time He is going to raise his leaders and His prophetic people to start to be a voice of leadership in national crisis. But He is going to bless you to be caught up to see more than you’ve ever seen before.

‘But then I heard God, just this week, say something quite remarkable. He says: “What sort of revival do you want?” He said to me, “Emma, the church gets to choose.” And He said, “You can have a revival that’s very similar to what you have known before.” And I’m like, “Well that sounds quite good God.” Depth of presence – it felt like water of glory cascading. And then He said, “But Emma, I’d rather you ask Me for the revival of the holy, reverential fear of God.” And God said, “It is in that, that I can bring the extraordinary miracles.” And the Lord says that he is going to give back to his people right now, and some of you just need to put your hand up wherever you are, because He’s giving back to you a godly capacity to fast; a godly capacity to pray; a godly capacity for greater holiness, because I believe that He’s saying to us,

“Choose My move that is a holy, reverential, all-based response to Who I am, that will bring the greatest harvest, and the greatest salvation and the greatest miracles for a generation.”

‘So I want to say, be encouraged. The enemy is at his weakest. God is humbling a nation and He is rushing towards us. Be blessed.’

Lion Bites that don’t let go…Practising the Presence

Blogging plans and priorities brewing over the weekend were about meeting a new focus, as implied at the close of last Friday’s post on seizing opportunities. I didn’t spell it out for the sake of closely guarding my purpose; but suffice to say, I was really surprised at what I’d sensed the Lord wants of me in this harvest-time. SO, I had a plan in mind for some ‘tests’ of republishing a few old posts as and when possible during a busy week, but don’t want to swamp my regular readership.

It ‘just so’ happens the Lord had directed Emma and David Stark at Glasgow Prophetic Centre, to personalise the next Lion Bites email to subscribers. This stirring word brought confirmation to my spirit (make it personal for you too by replacing my name with yours) and then got hammered home the next day:

Monday – GOD IS CALLING YOU LOUD AND CLEAR

The Lord is asking these questions in the earth;

“Who will be a nation changer today? Who will be willing to rise up from what is occupying their time to hear and obey my voice?”

God says “I am calling you, Richard, out to build and establish My Kingdom here on earth as it is in Heaven in your generation.”

David was the least in His father’s house yet, after much training in the secret place tending sheep, he was used mightily by God to deliver an entire nation. Do not allow yourself to think you are insignificant. Your steadfast trust in God amidst your trial has been preperation for the call and destiny God has put within you. You are, indeed, significant.

Make a decision today to heed the call of God, get up and go! Bring glory to God as you leave a legacy for future generations as they see, and are spurred on by the evidence of the great things He shall do through your yielded life.

Matthew 4:19

Then He said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men”.

Tuesday – COME AND SIT WITH GOD TODAY 

God says. “Come and sit awhile with me and let me be your sounding board.

“I long to chat through your hopes and dreams with you. They are a delight to my heart as you are a delight to me. I love to hear your enthusiasm and excitement for the things I have placed within you; the seeds that I sowed long ago that are now starting to shoot through your spirit and manifest in your life. I am excited, just as you are excited!

“Let us plan together while remembering that nothing is impossible for me. I have watched you grow to this place and this time. Know not to be afraid of what is ahead and, as you step out and into what you know to be next, see that I have already prepared a way for you.

“As you sit with me today, I am giving to you know confidence in the gifts and anointing that you carry. For I have given them to you, establishing them deep within. A firm foundation has been built, and now it is time for brick to be laid upon brick; for you to begin to move into the next area of your call.”

Zechariah 8:9

This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘Now hear these words, “Let your hands be strong so that the temple may be built”. This is also what the prophets said who were present when the foundation was laid for the house of the Lord Almighty.’

Invisible Jigsaw pieces: ‘thin places’, open heavens, new season in Wales

Today’s first priority was to put finishing touches (as below) to previous post and publish. Only then did I check my email and notice these notifications automatically posted a few hours earlier, and re-published with the permission of Glasgow Prophetic Centre and UK Prophetic Words:

Lion Bites – OPEN DOORS IN HEAVEN 🔑

“My dear child, I have watched and rejoiced over your fiery heart that burns with much passion – for my sake and others’ sake. I have listened as you cried from deep within, asking me to open new doors to you, doors of opportunities to advance my kingdom in the lives of others.

“Know this; I am now calling you to come apart with me for a time, out with of your busy routine, spending time alone with me in prayer and in seeking my face. As you do so, I will come and meet you in this place, and you will be lifted into new dimensions of my spirit.

“In this new place, your eyes will be opened to see that doors of opportunity and of ministry that I have called you to. Walking through these now open doors will move you closer to your destiny and your purpose. This open door will shift you into a place of an acute awareness of my voice and ability to see what I am doing in the spirit realm. It brings with it certainty about the call I have placed on your life and confidence to outwork what I placed within you.”

Today, commit before God to ‘come away’ with Him and, as you do so, you will be lifted up to see your open door.

Revelation 4:1 –
After this, I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven…

Simon Plant: A NEW DAWN AND A NEW SEASON IN WALES

The Son will be revealed through dark clouds of the past.

There is a new dawn and a new season in Wales.

Turn your heads towards me. There shall be new stories written, there shall be new songs sung. These stories and songs will come together in unity to form a new narrative and sound in Wales.

A new narrative of testimony, peace and unity and a new pure sound of praise and worship will arise and shine My light and glory as bright as the Sun. The light of this new dawn will shine into the dark corners of your neighbourhoods where you have feared to walk, into broken hearts and lives that have remained untouched.

In my presence and light there will be a thawing of the ground. As the earth warms, bulbs that have laid dormant for decades will begin to return to life and push through the weight of the soil that has sat over their heads.

Are you ready My Bride? For many shall join you this year to form a host of golden daffodils.

Simon Plant, 1st March’17

EARLY MORNING EVENT!

It just so happens ‘coincidentally’, I’d been inspired upon waking to make minor changes to the previous post’s draft that was left unchecked as we went out yesterday. 

It was entitled ‘On ‘The Veil’ Separating Heaven and Earth’ but I was strongly impressed it needed a different emphasis by putting Phil Mason’s sub-header ‘Thin Places’ in my title and inserting a fresh opening paragraph about this term. Yet I did not suspect that more invisible jigsaw pieces were falling into place.

A family friend runs tours of ancient sites connected with Celtic Christianity and so I know about ‘thin places’, but I wanted a link for readers and ‘googled’ that term. I hit one of the top sites, but upon reading I saw it’s the community a ‘team’ friend is connected with and where others will be ‘on retreat’ later this month!

AND with Peter, another mutual friend, we’d chatted yesterday afternoon about previous blog references to darkness, the midnight hour etc. He reminded me of ancient Jewish wedding customs and how they relate to the parable of wise and foolish virgins and the return of Jesus for His bride. So, out of the darkness comes the glory of the risen King!!

After amending the draft post I was about to hit the ‘Publish’ button BUT got firmly nudged into providing a link to our 2014 trip to South Wales and the renowned retreat centre in ‘little England’ (Pembrokeshire). So almost as an afterthought, the link thereto got added to the amended post!!!

Only afterwards did I read today’s emails directly related to thin places as open doors and on Wales – and the opening lines of what Simon brings from the Lord refers to His being revealed out of ‘dark clouds’ and to a ‘new dawn’!

ALL TO YOUR GLORY ALONE LORD – I praise and thank you.

GPS#6 – today’s trilogy of mighty encouragement

A sequence of three email provides this Global Prophecy Signal from Scotland, England and Australia (but time-stamped in reverse order). In reading them I noted a connecting thread but a day busy on many activities means only extracts are shown. To read the words in full click the appropriate links (emphases added):

Lion Bites: KEEP YOUR HEAVENLY PERSPECTIVE

God has not called you to be one who gives in to fearful circumstances which threaten to engulf your heart and mind. He has called you be one whose daily experience is joy and peace, knowing that His love is greater than any problem……Decide right now, as you read this word from God to trust Him and view all things through the heavenly lens of faith.

Hebrews 12:2
Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from beginning to end. He did not give up because of the cross…

Chris Bennett 3 Feb: HANG ON to Your Faith – HANG ON to ME

“HANG ON!” I hear the Lord calling over the tumult. “HANG ON to your faith, HANG ON to ME”, says the Lord, “For there is happening a backlash, an assault, a persecution so vicious it will stagger even the most fervent and zealous of My children. But even in the midst of the storm, My love will prevail.” says the Lord. “In the face of the enemy’s onslaught, you will see thousands turning to Me!”

Many prophets in these days are facing a daily assault and heavy fire from the satanic hordes. There is an unrelenting storm being thrown at Gods people and the prophets are bearing the brunt of it…

“…Can you not hear the victory shouts of My mighty army as the forces of evil are thrown back – and back – and back again?

“It has begun,” says the Lord.Stand by for your new orders, for new revelations, for new plans. The enemy is already retreating. Your victory is assured!”

Lana Vawser: I’m Releasing a Company of Prophets Who’ve Been Through The Fire and Carry Arrows of Fire to Bring a Great Realignment to the Church

“I am now releasing a company of prophets who have been through the fire and carry the arrows of fire in their hands, to bring a great re-alignment in the Church.”

I saw the Lord positioning these prophets, who have been through the fire, these ones who have allowed the Lord to do a deep work in their hearts and souls and who really carry His heart. These ones have been through an incredible testing in this season, an incredible time of purification and pruning and now the Lord is releasing them into places of greater favour.

I saw the Lord hand them arrows of fire and as I looked at their mouths, I could see their mouths like normal, but at the same time, I could see a MEGAPHONE over their mouths. The sense surrounded me that the voice of these prophets is about to get loud…continue reading this mightily exciting message.

GPS#5 – the Lord’s gift of discernment in darkness

For this example of God’s Global Prophecy Signals we consider and weigh two slightly contrasting yet similar prophetic words published this morning in Scotland by Glasgow Prophetic Centre and in Australia by Lana Vaser Ministries

First, we touch base sitting at the Lord’s feet.:

Lion Bites: “MY LIGHTS IN THE HEAVENS ARE VAST”

Hand Reaching for Stars Victor HabbickI heard the Lord say,

“Child, do not fear the darkness for it is in the darkness that I can whisper tender words, and you will hear them. It is in those times when I have you totally to myself, without distraction, that I have your full attention and I can show you my love in ways beyond human understanding.

“Oh how I long to bring you to that place where you can look up and see the vastness of the galaxies, the innumerable lights in the sky that I have called each by name. I long to show you the reality of eternity; of the timelessness of my power and love. You will understand the truth of how even in the darkest times my promises shine the brightest.

“So look up, don’t allow dark circumstances to cloud your vision, know that I have overcome the darkness and that nothing can snatch you from my eternal promises.”

Isaiah 66:2
This is what the LORD says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be? Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” declares the LORD.

NEXT, from our elevated place sitting alongside Him we’re blessed with deeper, practical guidance (emphases added):

Lana Vawser: THE LORD SPOKE TO ME THIS MORNING: “USE YOUR MUG WITH THE OWLS ON IT!”

LanaVawserThis morning as I went to make my coffee, I opened the cupboard to grab a mug and went to grab one of the ones I usually use. The Lord then whispers to me “Not that one, use the one with the OWLS”.

So I reach up to the top shelf and grab the coffee mug with the owls on it. The Lord speaks to me and says:

“I am highlighting OWLS again as a prophetic picture because as My people lean in, and reach up (pursue Me), I am giving them EYES to see in the dark. As they SEE what the enemy is planning, planting and plotting, what is happening in the dark, I am giving them heavenly wisdom to UNDO. Through the implemented wisdom of My heart in intercession and practical strategy, they will see these plans and assignments foiled in individuals lives, families, towns, cities and nations, before they are even implemented or have a chance to take root. Consequently, there will be a greater demonstration of My VICTORY all around.”

“First, the prophetic significance of an Owl is that it represents the “apostolic”. An owl can see things from a distance in very dark places. And it hunts rats. The church is moving into an age whereby they will go into the so-called “darkest places” and see exactly what needs to happen for Heaven to invade those situations. And they will hunt the “rats” of this age, the forces of darkness. The Kingdom of Heaven is coming like a flood, and the forces of darkness no longer have anywhere to hide! An apostolic focus whereby each and every member of the church will know they are sown like seed into the world, ready to terrorise the servants of darkness and usher in the Kingdom of Heaven!” (Quote by James Preston – jamespreston.org )

As I pondered this prophetic picture of OWLS.. The Lord then highlighted to me 2 Kings 6:8-12:

Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, “I will set up my camp in such and such a place.”

The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: “Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there.” So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places.

This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them, “Tell me! Which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?”

“None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.” (New International Version)

The Lord is giving His people who are pursuing Him, worshiping in Spirit and truth, EYES to SEE in the DARK what is being planned. He is giving His people EYES OF STRATEGY to move forward into VICTORY!!!!!!

Warning dreams, prophetic insight and sharper clarity is increasing in significant ways right now. When the Lord shows you a strategy of the enemy, don’t fear, ask for His wisdom and strategy and WATCH AND SEE how He is sending you in stealth, under the radar, through your intercession and other ways to DISARM AND OVERTURN TO JESUS NAME!!!

Listening to a Steffany Gretzinger instagram live video yesterday she mentioned 17 is the number of TOTAL VICTORY. It is also the number for ALIGNMENT. In 2017 the Lord is bringing ALIGNMENT and TOTAL VICTORY! There’s a greater “taking of ground” happening. The people of God are being awakened in greater ways to living on the offence rather than defence. There’s a great FOILING of the enemy’s plans that’s happening right now as God’s people LEAN IN and ask for EYES TO SEE in the dark.

You have been marked VICTORIOUS in Jesus name and the Lord is going to use you with your EYES TO SEE IN THE DARK to see the MANIFESTED VICTORY of JESUS released into the lives of others, cities and nations.

Today’s Lion Bites: a re-visitation of fire

World In Fire by Danilo Rizzuti“I am revisiting you with My fire and My power.

“I am calling you to come into a deeper and fuller encounter with Me and with who I am.

“Move towards Me now as I call to you, to meet you where I am in this new season. Come and meet with Me.

“For there is a place, I have prepared for you of fullness that will satisfy the longing you have. Come and behold Me as I hold you. Come and receive of My power and My fire in these days. For there is much to receive and much to outwork but first receive of My fresh-fire and My power.”

There is a new baptism of fire coming to the church and God is inviting us to pursue it and chase after Him in a new way. We are to position ourselves for the fullness of the fire and the fullness of His power in these days. So choose to position yourself and choose to press in for this fullness for these are the days of a new outpouring of God’s Baptism of fire.

Matthew 3:11
“I baptise you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

Tongues of Fire; Acts 2-3

Lion Bites: Isaiah 43:18-19 – implode or explode!

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. (Isaiah 43:18-19)

Today’s Lion Bite appropriately follows Tim Sheet’s (brother of Dutch Sheets) comment in his How to Live in the Kingdom Age, “I have been very encouraged because there is one thing that seems to be coming up and that is that we are stepping into a NEW ERA.”

IMPLODE OR EXPLODE

Lion-Bites-logo-2012We in a time where the ‘new’ has becoming a ‘bigger new’ than we could ever have imagined in days past. So many things are changing in the world: politically, financially, medical advances and so on. Particularly in the church things are changing – some even are disappearing and others are emerging.

I heard the Lord ask, “Implosion or explosion – where is your life today?”

  • Implode means ‘to burst, or cause to burst, inwards’
  • Explode means ‘to expand suddenly with a loud noise owing to a release of internal energy’

Are there things in your life which are imploding – producing no fruit and coming to an end? These are the ‘former things’. Seek the Holy Spirit and ask what the ‘new things’ are which He is waiting to explode into your life: new blessings, new relationships and new opportunities.
