God is faithful to His plans. Nothing can block or stop His purposes on the earth. For instance, take the story of Jacob and Esau. In Genesis 25:23 the Lord spoke directly to Rebekah about the children she would give birth to when He said, “…Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from […]
As I write these words to you, I can hardly contain my excitement at what God has been sharing with me, especially in light of what is happening prophetically in the world!I have spent all my adult life as a student of prophecy, and I believe recent developments, namely in Israel, are signaling a hot, accelerated, and unprecedented prophetic season that will quickly change the course of history. Are you ready?
During worship at an intercessory prayer gathering recently, I had a vision of a city at night. I saw that some of the houses had, what looked like, containers of fire burning in the middle of them. Next, sparks began flying from the houses and spreading over the city. I heard the Lord say, "My house shall be called a house of prayer. I am fanning the flame of prayer altars in homes. From these 'home prayer altars,' my wind will send sparks throughout the region. These sparks will begin to ignite a hunger in the souls of those who have filled their lives with other things. Those other things will no longer satisfy and the hunger will grow. They will begin to cry out for Me, and I will answer and fill them with a strong awareness of My presence that they cannot deny and that no other source will satisfy.
It was a sudden encounter with visionary revelation that must be shared—and spur the intercessors to stand in the gap immediately. I was traveling from Awakening House of Prayer D.C. to Awakening House of Prayer New York City on a train. When we disembarked at Penn Station, I saw a sign that said Fire Storm. The sign caught my attention like the burning bush caught Moses’ attention and I was suddenly caught up in a vision. In this vision, I saw New York City engulfed in what I can best describe as nuclear snow. I saw people running frantically through the streets in terror. Like a camera zooming in for emphasis, I saw a small child with his hands over his ears screaming. In a word, it was chaos.
Have you ever asked the question, “Why do we spend so much time in our services on worship?” What is the reason for all the present emphasis on worship? It is insufficient to think of our worship services as merely ‘the preliminaries,’ something to ‘condition’ the congregation in preparation for the truly important part of the service: the sermon. It is essential that every pastor and church answer this question for themselves. It is no...
A few nights ago as I was sitting in my living room, I began to notice the room fill up with angels. One angel in particular caught my attention, as I saw that there were rainbow colors above its head. I had never seen this kind angel before. I began to seek the Lord and study to find more information and insight about what He was saying. Then I clearly heard the Lord say, "That's the angel of promise."
I had a very interesting dream just before the changing of the Hebraic year from 5778 to 5779. I believe that this dream has great relevance to the people in the Body of Christ.In the dream, I had a vision and saw two guys coming who had a particular assignment to break apostolic and prophetic leaders—reformation leaders. In my dream these reformation leaders were represented by my husband, but I really believe that this is a word which goes out to those who are trying to bring God's reformation in the earth today.In the dream, these two guys came and ripped the shirt off of my husband's back and spread poison along his back. Then one of the guys took this metal rod and began to beat my husband's back.
For every dispensation of time, the saints are called forth to the stewardship of that time, ensuring that God's will is accomplished and His intentions fulfilled. Paul declared in Colossians 1:25, "I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the Word of God..."The word "stewardship" in the Greek is oikonomia. It is a word related to the stewardship and management of God's economy. For those chosen to be born and live in these fullness of times – in the "Day of His Power" – the call to ministry is the high call of stewarding and administering the life of Christ in the fullness of the power and authority intended by the Lord.The Bible highlights the many great leaders and saints who lived out this principle. God raises up certain people for certain times, and prepares and equips them to administer His blueprint for that period.
What would you say if a Christian friend claimed God had told him to marry an immoral woman? To say the least, you’d have reservations, right? You’d probably tell him what the Bible says about being “unequally yoked” and warn him of the dangers of missionary dating. But what should we make of the fact that God seems to have told Hosea to do exactly that? The prophecy of Hosea is probably best known for the scandal of Hosea’s marriage to Gomer. So the question is straightforward: Why did God command his prophet to marry an immoral woman?
