Here's another report from one of the meetings in Lakeland, FL
For His Glory,
Joe & Shirley

We are extending the revival AS LONG AS THE HOLY SPIRIT SAYS
Seven Days a Week! 10am & 7pm
Webcast instruction at the end of this report.


The morning services will continue at Ignited Church.

This was the final night in Auburndale. We are full to capacity. Churches all over the Central Florida area have opened their churches as “overflow” rooms.

Roy Fields is leading worship. The emphasis is on total intimacy with Christ. Laser focus on His Face.

Prophet Bob Jones told Todd that the Lord gave him the dates of June 22 to July 22… THAT’S WHEN THE GLORY WILL FALL WORLDWIDE. He is surprised that the glory has started to fall so soon!


Jesus did a wonderful thing in worship tonight! We sang out to Jesus, telling Him how much we desire Him and His presence. The Lord romanced His Bride and it is causing her to fall in love with Him all over again.

The crowd cried, we want you Lord, we’re hungry, we’re desperate, we’re thirsty for Your presence Lord. More Lord, More!

Crying out to the Holy Spirit, saying that we want more!

He wants to hear us from our hearts; it’s not about singing a song just to sing it. It’s about love from our hearts to Him.

Lord, take off all the religion to change the heart. Not about the singer or music but about loving on Jesus.

The crowd sang from the heart to worship Him. It ended in adoration to the Father.

People are continuing to get healed via the Internet just by the click of a button. The crowd extended hands towards the video cameras and asked God to release the anointing.

Testimonies from email & chat rooms

Lynn writes:
I was healed last night of fibroid tumors and excessive hemorrhaging when Todd gave a word about trouble in wombs being healed.

I have been bleeding for about a year. I stood up and felt the power of God and started laughing in the anointing.

Pastor Marilyn writes from Canada:
A friend of mine has been in the meetings there in Florida. She mailed me a prayer cloth she held for me in one of the prayer lines. I decided to sleep with the cloth last night and I could feel heat coming from it.

I had a pastors meeting this morning and took the cloth with me to tell the senior pastor about it and as I'm in this meeting, God had me lay the cloth on pastors from many churches in the city and impart the anointing for Revival and all the signs and wonders and healings and deliverances, etc.

Each one received and they all said that they could feel the heat coming from the cloth.

Kathryn writes:
We were at the meetings a few nights ago. Todd prayed for everyone after the service including my 3 yr. old grandson. He was slain in the Spirit . When he got up and said that he had seen an angel. The next day he pointed to a lamp in the motel and said that is what the angel looked like, a light. A few minutes later, I thought I heard Todd Bentley in the motel room. But it was My Grandson making all the sounds and saying the words BAM BAM BOOM!!!

Todd begins to minister

Todd announces that Monday night; the Glory Cloud is moving to Lakeland Convention Center that seats 8K — Debt Cancellation Service! Believing God that all debt will be cancelled.

Why isn’t everyone healed?

The Father loves us and He doesn’t want suffering children… He loves us the same as He does Jesus His son.


Todd shared about his mother dying during the outpouring in 2001 in Oregon. She died of a stroke in the middle of a healing outpouring. He heard the Lord ask him, “will you believe in me? Will you believe My word?”

Todd had to shut off the anger and bitterness and decided to go into the next healing meeting.


John 5, Jesus knew the man was in a condition for a LONG TIME. He asked the man… “do you want to be healed?” DO YOU WANT TO BE MADE WHOLE?

Make the choice to LET YOUR HURTS GO! Trust God. He is a loving God.



Accept His Love. Let there be a dying to your own self. Overcome the unbelief, hurt, pain…

Let go of the question… “will you touch and heal me God?”

The way to receive is to just sit back and trust God. Let Him move in your heart!


Countries represented: Brazil, Iceland, Scotland, Finland, Norway, Germany, France, Canada, England, Holland, Africa, Sweden, Bahamas, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, and India.


Todd called all of the Evangelists forward… all those called to do crusades all around the world. Todd prayed, “let the FIRE grow inside the Harvesters… take them to another level!”


Words of knowledge begin to flow!

People begin responding to the words:

A lady from North Carolina is healed of five cysts she suffered with for over 20 years. She also had a torn rotator cuff in both shoulders… FIRE HIT HER… totally healed!

A lady with lumps on her breast… TOTALLY GONE!

A lady with asthma… healed!

A woman with bells palsy and a deaf ear… HEALED. Her ear popped open when her foot it the stage!

A young boy came forward with an ulcerated colitis… he pushed on his stomach and no more pain… no more cramping!!!

Todd’s 8 yr old daughter shares a vision of BRIGHT YELLOW & WHITE LIGHT… she sees an angel praying for her daddy and all of the people on the stage.

Growths drop off bodies or dissolve away… another man with oil dripping from his hands… miracles are flowing.

A young lady was born with heart problems and has had a PACEMAKER SINCE SHE WAS TWO YEARS OLD! Todd commanded the pacemaker to come out!!!

Another lady had broken hip… THE PAIN IS GONE.

A man with a tumor on the side of his neck… THE TUMOR IS GONE!

A young lady with sleep paralysis disease… she would literally be paralyzed every time she fell asleep and it took someone to “shake her” to bring her out of it… SHE WAS HEALED WATCHING THE WEBCAST. SHE HAS SLEPT FOR THREE NIGHTS!!!


A young lady was BORN WITHOUT A UTERUS… she felt GOD WAS CREATING A UTERUS IN HER RIGHT NOW!!! Todd told her to get an x-ray!

A woman with a blown-out knee… totally healed.


A woman is having her joints lubricated by the OIL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT…

A man with a head injury… DOWN UNDER THE POWER!

One man who has never been in a meeting like this… refuses to come up on the stage… so Todd prays for him on the floor… DOWN HE GOES!


A young girl with life-long epilepsy… came with faith that if Todd would pray for her, she would be healed! SHE FELT A BUZZING THROUGH HER BODY!!!


The sweet presence of Jesus was upon us. It over took the crowd tonight as they waited to receive.

God was far from finished and the anointing still continued.

His sweet love continued to be poured out. It was a receiving and giving out of Lord between Himself and His church.

People are still so hungry.

Matt Sorger: "IT'S A NEW SEASON OF MIRACLES AND GREATER GLORY" --and God is Calling Everyone to Access and Step Into It!

Courtesy of

Matt Sorger

God is up to something! Below is a word I previously shared before the beginning of the New Year with some recent miracles and testimonies that have been happening. Over the last few months, we have been witnessing a dramatic increase of God's healing, miracle power. We are stepping into a new season where signs, wonders and miracles are becoming easy. There is a shift happening in the spirit and God is calling everyone to access and step into it. Now is the time to pray for the sick like never before. There is a great healing grace being poured out.

As we have been traveling across America over the last several months, the glory of God has been poured out in such a tangible, overwhelming way. There is a heavy weight of glory sweeping over those who are hungry for more of God! Hunger and thirst are the keys to receiving this GREAT GRACE God is releasing. We must get our eyes off of ourselves and onto Him.

Matt Sorger I have found myself saying, "IT'S JUST THAT EASY!" As the weight of His glory has filled entire rooms, His healing grace and presence have been sweeping over the people--healing them right in their seats! We worship until His glory comes and then He does the rest. There is a new realm of corporate healing glory being released. We call out a sickness by the Holy Spirit and it gets healed. It's just that easy. It's not hard in the glory!

New Mantles are Falling

All throughout Church history, men and women have partnered with God to see great movements of His Spirit released in the earth. God is still looking for such individuals today. You can be one of them!

Right now, there are mantles hovering over the Body of Christ, waiting to be released, and God is looking for those He can place them on. Some mantles will resemble things we have seen before, while others will empower people to do things that have never been done before.

The Lord recently spoke to me in a dream where He showed me one of the mantles about to be released over the corporate Body of Christ. In my dream, I was in a house full of people. I heard a knock at the door and went to open it. When I opened the door, a very elderly woman was standing there. She looked like she was just about to pass over into eternity. She could barely stand. I instantly recognized her. She was a very old Kathryn Kuhlman. I reached down and put my arms under her, picked her up and carried her into the house. As I stepped over the threshold into the house, I awoke from my sleep. For weeks I prayed over this dream asking God for understanding. As I waited on the Lord, He began to unfold its meaning to me.

Mass Miracles and Deliverance

The Lord used the picture of Kathryn Kuhlman to symbolically speak to me that there is once again about to be released over the Church a mantle that is similar to the one this great woman of God wore. It is a Mantle of Glory and Creative Miracles. Not only will it release mass miracles, but it is deeply connected to our level of intimacy with the Person of the Holy Spirit. It is a mantle of extraordinary power as well as deep intimacy with God. This mantle releases creative miracles as the atmosphere of Heaven is released in and over our lives.

This type of mantle will not just cover one or two. God wants to release it over the Corporate Body. God is looking for vessels He can endue with power out in the marketplace. We will see "backyard miracles" en masse, miracles in the home, workplace, out on the streets, in hospitals and in the malls. We will see creative miracles everywhere God's people go. But this mantle requires a lifestyle of deep communion with God and a life of complete surrender, obedience and death to self.

The second mantle I want to share with you is the Mantle of Mass Deliverance. Not only will we see mass miracles, but there is also a wave of mass deliverance coming. People that have struggled in areas of their lives for years will receive breakthrough as the fire of deliverance is released into their lives. I encourage you to pray this prayer, "Lord, uncover and expose every area of darkness in my heart." As you do, God will release by His Spirit a deep deliverance in your life. Just as the Lord delivered Israel out of the hands of the Egyptians en masse, so God will deliver His people en masse (Exodus 3:20-22).

Supernatural Favor

The third is a Mantle of Supernatural Favor. God is placing mantles of favor upon His children in this hour. It's the type of favor that God placed on Isaac as he was taking possession of the land of his inheritance in Genesis 26. As he contended for what God said was his, Isaac eventually came into a place of total fulfillment and rest. This favor will cause God's people to enter into the fullness of their inheritance.

Media Revival

The fourth is a Media Mantle. We will see a "media revival" with a move of God spreading through the airwaves and internet. The Lord spoke to me that He is raising up TV networks that will help facilitate this end time move of God. Jesus will even be glorified over the secular networks! God is placing Media Mantles on people who will glorify His name through various media outlets.

Be Ready

As we move into this next season, I encourage you to stay sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit as He leads you into times of prayer and waiting on Him. This will prepare you to be fully ready for all that He wants to release in and through your life. Get ready to pick up your mantle!

In the Right Place at the Right Time

Matt Sorger When the mantle fell from Elijah, Elisha had to bend down and pick up that mantle. When he did, the Spirit of the Lord came upon him. Elisha had to be in the right place at the right time. It required persistence, determination and faithfulness on his part, so he would be correctly positioned to receive the mantle when the time came for it to be released. The same is true for us. It does matter where you are and who you are hanging out with! Some visitations from the Lord require you being in a specific place at a specific time. It is crucial we are where God wants us to be.

I know each time I have received a mantle from the Lord, it has been in a specific place and time. For example, the Lord led me to be in Moriah Chapel in Wales during the 100-year anniversary of the Welsh Revival. This was the location where the Revival of 1904 broke out--impacting millions of souls around the world. It was during this special time of prayer that I had a deep encounter with the "Revival Mantle." This was the mantle Evan Roberts, the 27-year-old revivalist, wore transforming the entire culture and society of Wales.

During my prayer time, I could physically feel a blanket-like garment being draped over my legs and around my waist. God gave me a very deep revelation on the true meaning of revival. I came to understand from John 13:4-5 that true mantles of power must be worn with humility and servanthood. This was the mantle Jesus wore when He girded Himself with a towel and washed His disciples' feet. It was significant that the mantle was draped over my waist and legs. True revival is marked with deep humility.

Another time, I was in Europe ministering with an evangelist friend in Estonia, who was doing some large evangelistic crusades, when the Mass Crusade Mantle came upon me. I was standing on the platform when it happened. The anointing for miracles and mass salvation came into the meeting. As I was standing on the right side of the platform, it felt like someone placed a blanket over my head, shoulders and arms. There was a new mantle for mass crusades being placed on my life. This mantle was released in the midst of the glorious atmosphere of a mass crusade meeting. I was in the right place at the right time. Just three months later, I held my first mass crusade in India. Multitudes were saved, healed of sickness and delivered from demonic oppression!

Testimonies are Coming In!

Here are just a few of the healing and miracle testimonies that have been shared over the last few months as God's healing glory is invading the earth!

Deaf Ears are Opening:

I was at a church near my home and a young man, Matt Sorger, was preaching. While he was preaching, I was healed! I've had problems with my hearing and I've been healed. Praise God.

Syracuse, New York

At the conference Matt Sorger called out a word of knowledge. The word of knowledge was that God is healing someone with a plugged ear. That was me. When he called the word out, at that moment my ear popped open and I was healed. Jesus healed me. Praise God!

Syracuse, New York

I had deafness because of high fevers as a child. Tubes and fibers were destroyed in my ears because of the high fevers from kidney failure. I am now completely healed!

Maricopa, Arizona

Healed from Bone and Back Pain:

I was at the Glory, Signs and Wonders Conference in Syracuse. While I was there, I was healed from a sports injury that had caused much pain in my jaw and popping of the bones. I've had this problem for ten years and Jesus was the only one that healed me. Thank you, God, for no more pain. God is good.

Syracuse, New York

I was at the conference in Syracuse. For about ten years, I have suffered from severe back pain. I've gone to church before, but tonight God healed me completely. This is the first time I am having no more pain. I am healed. God is good. If you have a pain, believe God and He will heal you.

Syracuse, New York

Limp Leg and Feet Healed:

Matt Sorger I had a polyp on my knee for seven years and I was unable to straighten my leg. I had orthoscopic surgery on my knee, and the surgeon said it was successful, but I walked with a limp and still couldn't straighten it. I was healed during the meeting and now can straighten my leg and walk!


I had a bone spur on the bottom of my left foot and I was limping. Then the fire came on my left foot and the pain left. There is no more limp in my walk.

Tacoma, Washington

I want to highly encourage you to join us for one of our upcoming meetings. God is doing a NEW THING! He is looking for hungry vessels He can fill and endue with His power!

Jane Hansen Hoyt: God Says, "I Never Intended for You to Live on Leftovers!" Now is the Time to APPEAL to the KING!

Courtesy of

Jane HansenWhat have you been contending for? Are there things in your life that you have been praying for, believing for or watching for, that have yet to come to pass? If you're like me, you get weary sometimes. Instead of sitting down to the banquet feast, you feel like your plate is full of leftovers.

The Lord spoke to me recently in this regard through the story of a woman that is found in 2 Kings 4. She was barren, and she was desperate.

You know the story: Elisha promised this Shunammite the cry of her heart--a son. Then, after she received her promised child, he died. In a powerful moment of restoration, Elisha raised him from the dead and gave him back to his mother.

But that's not the part of the story I want to focus on. Instead, I want to concentrate on "the rest of the story" (as nationally known radio commentator Paul Harvey might say), because the Lord has insights for us to grasp hold of through this woman's experience (2 Kings 8).

The Shunammite is told by Elisha that there will be seven years of famine in the land and that she is to leave and find a place for her household until the famine ends.

Insight #1

The Shunammite "arose"--she took action. She obeyed God, speaking through Elisha. "So the woman arose and did according to the saying of the man of God…" 2 Kings 8:2.

She had to get up from her place of comfort, from all that was familiar, from the place where she was accustomed to living. She actually went to the land of the Philistines--unfamiliar territory.

So with us, in this hour, God is calling us to step out of the places where we find comfort and security and to risk radical obedience to His leading. To do that, we must "upgrade our relationship with God," as prophetic voice Graham Cooke says. We must press in for greater intimacy with the King, because intimacy is the only source of strength and confidence.

Insight #2: She Appealed to the King

At the end of the seven years, the Shunammite returned from the land of the Philistines and "went to make an appeal to the king for her house and for her land" 2 Kings 8:3.

This was property that she owned, bought and paid for. She was coming to reclaim that which was already hers. There are things that you have been contending for in your life, things you know belong to you--but are not "yet" in your hand.

Now is the time to appeal to the King! Come boldly to His throne of grace and appeal for that which is already yours: family, finances, health, relationships. Jesus has purchased the deed on your behalf with His Blood. The King is waiting for you!

Then God intervenes. The king is talking with Gehazi, Elisha's servant, asking about the great things Elisha has done. As he's telling the king about the woman whose son was raised from the dead, there she stands! Gehazi identifies her as the very woman he was speaking about. After she confirms what happened, the king gives her back her inheritance.

Insight #3: Full Restoration Was in Her Destiny!

Not only did she receive her house and land back, she received the proceeds from the land which had been earned--from the time she left until the time of her restoration.

"Restore all that was hers, and all the proceeds of the field from the day that she left the land until now." 2 Kings 8:6

She moved out of a place of poverty and lack into possessing her inheritance. So are we! When I read this passage, the Lord clearly spoke to me saying, "I NEVER INTENDED FOR YOU TO LIVE ON LEFTOVERS. YOU OWN THE FIELD!"

Every area of your life that you have been contending for already belongs to you. All the prayers you have prayed, all the tears you have cried have not gone unnoticed. The King is declaring over your life: RESTORE ALL!

We are in a season when that which we have sown in the spirit--is being restored to us. The Shunammite experienced seven years of famine. From 2000 to 2007, we have gone through significant things--hard, painful, disappointing things in our personal lives, as well as corporately.

But in the midst, we have sown faith and obedience and trust in the King. We have been faithful to press into Him in times of testing and trial. Each time we yield, we align ourselves in a greater way with His purposes in our lives.

In 2008, your King declares over you: RESTORE ALL!

A Holy Ghost Outbreak in Florida

Melissa writes:
I was in the upper-chat room when my husband came in and told me my best Friend Cara had just had a massive heart attack. I immediately shutdown the computer and went to get dressed to go be with her.

Are you willing to pay the price for the anointing?

Todd shares “I’ll pay any price for the anointing!” I had no idea the price I would have to pay!

On the second day in Florida, the presence in my hotel room changed… the Healing Angel appeared to me with two mantles… supernatural revelations… like William Branham… and BOLD FAITH… like AA Allen.


Supernatural ministry of revelations… dreams, visions, words of knowledge, gifts of faith, gifts of healing, gifts of power… IT IS BEING RELEASED TO THE BODY OF CHRIST!!!


Todd calls up Che Ahn to share from an Apostolic perspective… “what have you seen while you were here?”

Che Ahn shares how he and others have been rejected by their brethren… there is a humility and brokenness… holiness… sanctification…

“There is a coming together of the historic revivals… AND THIS IS THE THIRD WAVE!”

Che shares how a group of revival leaders were meeting in a private meeting to seek God’s face regarding the next move of God. They were just less than a football field away from the beach, sitting in a grassy area. When they began to discuss the Florida Healing Outpouring… they felt the Holy Spirit say, “this is the THIRD WAVE!”

Suddenly, a HUGE SNEAKER WAVE CAME CRASHING UP THE BEACH…!!!! The wave went all the way up to their feet where they were sitting! Che Ahn then said, “I’m headed for Lakeland!!”


The Todd calls up Pastor Stephen Strader of the Ignited Church, the epicenter of this THIRD WAVE… Todd laid his mantle on Stephen, Stephen’s wife, son, and his son’s wife!

Revival Fever Breaks Out in Florida

In Lakeland, Fla., thousands are packing a church every night for the past two weeks looking for a taste of what could be a major spiritual outpouring.
Revival Fever Breaks Out in Florida
[04.16.08] Meeting in a converted storefront on a highway in Lakeland, Fla., thousands are packing a church every night for the past two weeks looking for a taste of what could be a major spiritual outpouring.
Pockets of the Christian community in this area and beyond are buzzing over what could be compared with the early meetings revivalist Rodney Howard-Brown held here 15 years ago at Carpenter’s Home Church two miles down the road.
With an almost palpable sense of expectation hanging in the meetings, wild stories of healings have been lighting up the blogosphere, from reports of permanent scars disappearing off bodies to tumors disintegrating in stomachs.
Word of the meetings has spread across the globe via GOD TV’s live Web stream, and will air live on the network every night this coming weekend.
If hunger, as in the outpourings in Toronto and Pensacola during the 1990s, is a characteristic of revival, then believers here appear starved. “I’m just here for the presence of the Lord,” said one young man last night.
In loud heart-crying worship, one song lyric in particular—“healing is the bread of your children”—has become an anthem of the meetings being held in Lakeland by Todd Bentley, a Canadian revivalist and founder of Fresh Fire Ministries.

JoAnn McFatter: "Having Done All, Stand and Be Filled!"

Courtesy of

JoAnn McFatterGrace, Grace!

I want to say to all worshipers who have dreamed the dream of the cloud of God's Presence filling the temple, "Take courage and position yourselves rightly, for your redemption draweth nigh!" Perhaps that's a strange way of saying it, but that's how I heard it. God is about to release the "GRACE, GRACE" without measure upon the earth! We've finally gotten to the point that we are convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that truer words were never spoken than those from the Voice of the Lord to Zechariah:

This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might not by power, but by My Spirit,' says the LORD of hosts. 'Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of "Grace, grace to it!'" Zechariah 4:6-7

After having pressed in and pressed on with what little we have in sheer faithfulness to God and a lovesick heart, we still have not experienced the desired result of His habitation in our midst. Trying not to despise "this day of small beginnings," as was referenced in that same chapter by Zechariah, and having done all we know to do...we stand. We stand before Him, resting and abiding in Him, posturing ourselves to receive from Him the infilling that is necessary to carry what He is about to pour out from Heaven. Even the very thought of it arouses the ache of hope that we will see it with our own eyes.

The process has all but killed us, so its purpose has most likely almost been accomplished. Empty vessels, void of ourselves and having come to the end of our own strength and our own ideas, we now know we must have the grace of His Presence not only in our midst, but within us. We ARE the temple, and His rebuilding of His Temple is much more personal than we ever imagined.

Things Not Seen

Over the last few years, my attention has been brought at every turn to the book of Zechariah, the emphasis being chapter 4--the source of the ceaseless flow and the shouts of "grace, grace." Zechariah's writings seem to relate to the admonition from the Lord to Habakkuk, as this theme of hope pervades in a two-fold manner. First of all, we have the hope deferred with the result of making our hearts sick, but then we have the hope as the result of faith. We seem to have to go through the lack of the first to get to the substance of the second.

"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 and IT WILL NOT LIE. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, IT WILL NOT TARRY. Behold the proud, his soul is not upright in him; but the just shall live by his faith.'" Habakkuk 2:2-4

In the midst of what seemed to be the silence of Heaven, something we can all relate to on some level, God encourages Habakkuk to continue, to continue and not grow weary in well doing. That renowned phrase, "the just shall live by his faith," uttered from His lips still echoes in the life of the Believer. We add to that the New Testament reference of hope as is related to faith:

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1

The operative words here being "things not seen." Both prophets refer to things promised from God that are being withheld out of His mercy and love toward us, as does the prophet Isaiah. He does not want to give us a thing too soon, lest it destroy us. God wants us to BE the Temple filled with His glory, with the manifestation of His Seven Spirits burning unto His abiding Presence WITHIN us--not just around us. I realize this next portion of Scripture is long, but there is not a word I dare leave out, as it so completely paints a picture of where we are as the Body of Christ.

"Therefore the LORD will wait, that He may be gracious to you; and therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for Him. For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem; you shall weep no more. He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you. And though the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your teachers will not be moved into a corner anymore, but your eyes shall see your teachers.

"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. You will also defile the covering of your images of silver, and the ornament of your molded images of gold. You will throw them away as an unclean thing; you will say to them, 'Get away!'

"Then He will give the rain for your seed with which you sow the ground, and bread of the increase of the earth; it will be fat and plentiful. In that day your cattle will feed in large pastures. Likewise the oxen and the young donkeys that work the ground will eat cured fodder, which has been winnowed with the shovel and fan.

"There will be on every high mountain and on every high hill rivers and streams of waters, in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. Moreover the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD binds up the bruise of His people and heals the stroke of their wound." Isaiah 30:18-26

"In Returning and Rest You Shall Be Saved"

This one portion of Scripture describes what is on the horizon as He fills us with His fullness, His Seven Spirits burning, that we might carry in our beings the fullness of God in the fullness of time. As worshipers and priests to our God, we need to be forerunners in this; in Scripture, God had a pattern of sending the musicians and singers out ahead of the rest of the group. There is a preparation that must take place in us that we might to be able to hold that position with grace--even His "Grace, grace!" In verse 15 of Isaiah 30, prior to what you just read, God gives His reason for waiting. I saved this until last, as I am undone when I ponder His limitless mercy toward us in this statement!

"For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel: 'In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength.' But you would not..." Isaiah 30:15

Therein lies the beauty of His ways, as He goes on in verse 18 to say, that because we couldn't, actually WOULDN'T, do what He admonishes us to do--for our own good, mind you--He waited so that He could be gracious to us. There's that "grace, grace" again! Does that not just explode within you?! We rebel, so He waits to pour out His fullness--He goes on to describe to us in verses 18-26--that it not destroy us. Hopefully we are now at the point that we can return to Him, face Him, draw near to Him and rest in Him.

I believe God wants to fill us with His Seven Spirits of wisdom and understanding, counsel and might, knowledge and the fear of the Lord unto the indwelling of His Presence. He wants to equip us within for what is about to be poured out from Heaven. There have never been a people who walked in this--until now.

James Goll: "Confessing Generational Sins and Positioned for an Open Heaven!"

Courtesy of

James W. Goll

Revival in the Church!


A. Remove Every Obstacle

Isaiah tells us we are to "remove every obstacle out of the way of My people" (Isaiah 57:14)--to clear the way and remove the stones (Isaiah 62:10). This must first be done before we can fulfill the next admonition to build up (Isaiah 62:10), repair the breach, and restore the streets (Isaiah 58:12).

B. Blockades that Must be Removed

1. Psalm 66:18--"If I regard wickedness in my heart, the Lord will not hear (me)."

2. Proverbs 28:9--"He who turns away his ear from listening to the law, even his prayer is an abomination."

3. Deuteronomy 5:6-10--"I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in Heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, and on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments."

4. Proverbs 15:8--"The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, but the prayer of the upright is His delight."

C. Confession Defined

1. From "Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words," confession means "to speak the same thing, to assent, accord, agree with;" denotes either:

a. To confess, declare, admit--John 1:20; Acts 24:14.
b. To confess by way of admitting oneself guilty of what one is accused of, the result of inward conviction--1 John 1:9.
c. To declare openly by way of speaking out freely, such confession being the effect of deep conviction of facts--Matthew 7:23, 10:32; Luke 12:8.

2. Definition of Confession from "Webster's Dictionary":

a. To tell or make known (as something wrong or damaging to oneself); to admit.
b. To acknowledge (sin) to God or to a priest.
c. To receive the confession of (a penitent).
d. To declare faith in or adherence to; to profess.
e. To give evidence of.


A. Daniel's Example

1. Meditation on the Word: Daniel was pondering on the words of Jeremiah 29:10-14 (this is stated in Daniel 9:2). He apparently was convicted and enlightened by the Scripture. This possibly occurred in the 63rd year of their Babylonian captivity.

2. He did not respond presumptuously, but rather sought for the Spirit's remedy so the promise could be fulfilled.

3. As he meditated on God's prophetic desire, he realized there were blockades that must be removed before the promise would be fulfilled.

4. He laid aside self-justification (Luke 18:12-13--the Pharisee and Publican syndrome).

5. He set his face to pray with humility (Daniel 9:3).

6. Daniel confessed their sin as his own (Daniel 9:4-17).

7. Then he pleaded with the Lord for mercy for His own name's sake (Daniel 9:18-19).

B. Nehemiah's Example

1. A report was brought to Nehemiah that saddened his heart. "They said to me, 'The remnant there in the province who survived the captivity are in great distress and reproach, and the wall of Jerusalem is broken down and its gates are burned with fire.'" (Nehemiah 1:3).

2. He then wept and mourned for days under this burden (Nehemiah 1:4).

3. This resulted in petitions beginning with respect and adoration (Nehemiah 1:5).

4. He then confessed the sin of the sons of Israel saying, "I and my father's house have sinned. We have acted very corruptly against You..." Nehemiah 1:6b-7a

5. Nehemiah then reminded God of His prophetic promise to Moses (Nehemiah 1:8-9).

6. He then made an appeal to God on the basis of His redemptive work which He has done (Nehemiah 1:10).

7. He also implored God for favor with the king and asked for success (Nehemiah 1:11).

C. Ezra's Example

1. The princes approached Ezra with a report concerning the abomination of the people; the priests and the Levites were intermarrying with the people of the land (Ezra 9:1-2).

2. Ezra then tore his garment and robe, plucked some of his hair and beard, and sat down appalled (Ezra 9:3); those who trembled at the words of God joined Ezra in shock and humiliation (Ezra 9:4).

3. Ezra then arose from his humiliation (fasting), fell on his knees and hands, and began to cry out to the Lord (Ezra 9:5).

4. He names the sin as his own, as a priestly spokesman before God, and states "their" iniquities, guilt, shame, and embarrassment (Ezra 9:6-7). Notice the complete absence of a self-righteous attitude.

5. He recalls God's grace, faithfulness, and lovingkindness; then acknowledges that God has requited them less than their iniquities deserve (Ezra 9:10-13).

6. He then speaks to the Lord concerning the importance of maintaining the remnant, and weeps bitterly with repentance before the house of God (Ezra 9:14-10:1).

7. Ezra calls the offenders forward over a three-day period to publicly repent (Ezra 10:5-8).

8. They are charged then with their sin and personal confession is made with a vow to do what is right (Ezra 10:9-17).

Positioned for an Open Heaven!

One of the most consistent ways that the Lord speaks to me is through "dreams." Once again, by the grace and faithfulness of God, the Holy Spirit gave me a very vivid, instructional dream. The dream was filled with color and emotions, but no words. I do feel that this dream has meaning for me in a personal manner and yet contains truths that are for the Body of Christ. So let me unfold it.

I was attempting to stand in a room where there was a low ceiling. It was an old room filled with religious senses all around it. It was a room representing the Church in its present condition and, in particular, the overall condition of the church where I live in Greater Nashville, Tennessee.

I was standing on the outer edge of the room, and I kept trying to stand up. As I would do this (my head would butt the ceiling), I could actually feel the weight of the stone ceiling on my head in the dream. I kept trying to raise the roof off by standing up, but it was not working. Then something like a giant, heavenly can opener came down from above and cut a huge hole in the stone roof. The hole appeared in the center of the room. I then moved from the outer edge to the center of the room, and as I did, I looked up.

The Sky was Filled with the Promises of God!

There was now a brilliant "open Heaven" stationed right over my head. The sky was blue, and there were beautiful clouds hovering. I could feel the warmth of the sun upon my body. The atmosphere was filled with faith, hope, love and life.

I then proceeded in the dream back to the edge of the room where the ceiling was still intact, and yes, still quite low. Again, I had to crouch down to get under the low ceiling. I attempted to stand upright, only to feel the weight of the ceiling suppressing me once again. So I stepped back into the center of the room. What a contrast!

There was clean air to breathe! There was light and no darkness. There was a sense of purpose and destiny fulfilled. I was now positioned correctly under an open Heaven, enabling me to achieve the purposes of God. I was centered and walking in the light.

Interpreting the Experience

As I woke up, I had several "knowings" as a result of this dream experience. Again, there were no audible words in this dream. But the feeling dimension was very alive! I did feel a word dropped inside of me, though, as I woke up: "Get positioned for an open Heaven."

God wants each of us to be properly aligned in this hour with Him and His purposes. He wants to lift the lid off the can, but we must position ourselves properly as this occurs. We must move from the side issues to the central ones. We must be centered on Him.

Walking in open Heavens deals more with His work versus ours. Our efforts to push through and even "stand uprightly" are acknowledged, but it is truly His work from above that creates a sustained place or open Heavens for His presence. He has the ability to break through even the hardest of places, circumstances and low ceilings. Again, in the dream, the Lord saw my efforts and acknowledged them, but then He did the work that I could not.

God's Divine Commentary

I found it quite interesting that the last word I released was on Creating an Open Heaven. I think the Lord had some divine commentary to add to my word. It is more about His work from above, than our work from beneath. He does respond, however, to our efforts. But we do not create an open Heaven--He does. He is the Creator; I am not. I am a responder to His great love and initiative. Yet, what goes up must come down!

So, get positioned for an open Heaven! Get into Kingdom alignment for such a time as this. Step out of the shadows of the side edges and move into the center of His word, will and ways. Be centered in Him; after all, being "centered in Christ" is the best place to be!

Chuck Pierce: "The First of Months in the Year of New Beginnings: LET JUDAH GO FIRST! (8-Day Prayer Focus Included)"

Steve ShultzWe Have Entered the Month of Nisan

These are intense but glorious times throughout the world. The Church is arising from nation to nation. I am seeing a hunger for prophetic revelation. This will give us vision of what God is doing this hour (Proverbs 29:18). Without prophetic revelation, we lose our way. Thank you for believing in me to be an ambassador of God's prophetic voice. We must be willing to tear down the religious structures that keep the wineskin for this age from coming forth with power.

In this season, a major shift is coming in the way we worship and acknowledge God corporately. This past weekend I was amazed at the different expressions of worship and sound being released at our Firstfruits Gathering. Not only was the worship prophetic, but it was generational.

We have now entered the month of Nisan, the "first of months." The tribe that the Lord chose to be "first" was Judah. Judah means praise. The word "praise" originates from "value" and "price." So in this month, praise should be preeminent. The Hebraic calendar has certain times when certain blessings can be spoken into the earth.

Each month is designed by the Lord to release a blessing into our lives. His desire is for us to move from blessing to blessing all year. In this "first of months" there are certain things which must be done "first." The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron and said, "This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you" (Exodus 12:2). This month marks the beginning of the Hebrews' movement out of Egypt and into His covenant. Even as the Church became secularized and moved in the Babylonian concept of Easter, we still operate in the observance of deliverance by the Blood--by recognizing the Resurrection.

This is Not a Season for the Body of Christ to be Passive

There are many wonderful examples where the Israelites expressed violent praise. Moses and Miriam both sang and danced when they passed out of Egypt. Miriam was actually 90 years old when she led the congregation in dancing. The Israelites also expressed violent praise at Jericho. Gideon expressed violent praise over the Midianites. Paul and Silas expressed violent praise that shook them out of prison. Don't worry about what to say to praise violently--just let your heart respond to God for He IS worthy! Psalm 81:10 says, "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt; open your mouth wide, and I will fill it."

The restoration of David's Tabernacle is advancing in the earth realm in this generation. You should read Amos 9 as well as Acts 15, and then the Book of Revelation. One expresses prophetically, another expresses historically, and the latter reveals the present expression of the war in the Heavens. When you read more closely, you can see how we, as God's army in the earth, will co-labor with the Host of Heaven to express a Holy God's overcoming power throughout the nations of the earth. This will unlock a global harvest. Your violent praise is preparing a storehouse for Kingdom harvest.

As you praise "violently" you are also releasing the "Roar of the Lord" that has been held captive in God's people. Let me explain the "Roar of the Lord." God's sound permeates from Heaven and orders much of what goes on in the earthly realm. When He is ready to bring restoration to earth, He releases His sound. Judah goes first! Judah roars! The roar of God is within us. Judah means "Praise Yahweh." Do not resist the major shift that is recreating the way we worship and our corporate acknowledgment of God. Yahweh signifies the God of covenant.

This is a month when our praise and worship is important to the LORD. This is also a time when we begin to value the covenant that He has allowed us to enter into with Him. What a price He paid to give us access to the Throne Room. Our worship will take on great covenant significance at this time, and release great blessings into the earthly realm.

Violence means "vehement, forcible, or destructive action, often involving infringement, outrage, or assault." Matthew 11:12 says, "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force." In the phrase, "the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence," a share in the Heavenly Kingdom is sought for with the most ardent zeal and the most intense exertion. The NIV reads, "The Kingdom of Heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it."

To give praise to God is to proclaim His merit or worth in every situation that we find ourselves encountering. You can shout "Glory!" You can release blessing! Your heart can express thanksgiving.

Praise includes offering of sacrifices (Leviticus 7:13), physical movement (2 Samuel 6:14), silence and meditation (Psalm 77:11-12), testimony (Psalm 66:16), prayer (Philippians 4:6), and a holy life (1 Peter 1:3-9). Praise is linked to music, both instrumental (Psalm 150:3-5) and vocal. Praise includes spontaneous outbursts of thanksgiving for some redemptive act of God (Exodus 15; Judges 5; 1 Samuel 2; Luke 1:46-55, 67-79). Praise also includes formal psalms and hymns adapted for corporate worship (2 Chronicles 29:30) and Church (Colossians 3:16). Praise should be a heart expression and not an outward show (Matthew 15:8).

The Sound of the Throne Room

God is pursuing His people. The Spirit of the Lord is calling us to worship. God is releasing a sound from Heaven that is being embraced by people all over the world. The call causes us to draw near to Him and to each other. The sound causes us to go to war. We must manifest on earth what God says in Heaven. God's sound permeates from Heaven and orders much of what goes on in the earthly realm. When He is ready to bring restoration to earth, He releases His sound.

A physical sound has always led the armies of God forth. I always visualize it this way: God is on His Throne, and Jesus is seated next to Him. Jesus is the door that we have into the Father's Throne. The Word of God tells us in James 4 to submit ourselves to God, draw near to Him and then resist the devil. I believe that as we worship and submit ourselves to a holy God, we can come into intimate contact with Him. Even though we walk here on the earth in our worshipful submission, we ascend into Heaven. As we individually seek God and ascend into the Throne Room, we can hear the sound in Heaven in our spirit man on earth. We also find this all the way through the Book of Revelation.

The Book of Revelation is just an incredible, elaborate pageant that is interpreted to us by heavenly, celestial singers along with creatures and elders. John saw a door standing open in Heaven, and the voice he heard was like a trumpet speaking and saying, "Come up here and I will show you things that must take place after this" (see Revelation 4:1). The Lord's voice, many times, sounds like a trumpet calling us forth. The trumpet, or shofar, in the Word of God had a distinct sound to assemble and call God's people to war.

Nisan is the Passover month. This is a time to CROSS OVER into the inheritance that has been promised you. Joshua 3:15-17 says, "And those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the time of harvest)...and the people crossed over completely to the other side of the Jordan."

I believe we are moving in God's perfect time. Timing is so important. "In Him, we move and have our being" (Acts 17:24-26, Colossians 1:19, 2:9). I am praying for you to be in God's perfect timing.

In this month of Nisan, here are key areas that you can use for an 8-Day Prayer Focus:

Day 1: Read Genesis 29:35, 49:8-12, Deuteronomy 33:7, Judges 1, Judges 20, 1 Samuel 16, and Psalm 89. Judah goes first. Since this is the beginning of months, this month represents the Tribe of Judah. Let praise arise in your heart. If you will begin to praise now, then He will enthrone Himself in the midst of your life and situations. Begin this month praising and let praise be the pattern for you all year long.

Day 2: Catch a "New Wind" of His Spirit. Read 2 Samuel 5, 1 Corinthians 13, and John 3. This month represents the annual renewal of God's HEI plan. Remember the Hebrew letter HEI. This is the month linked with the window of Heaven and the sound of Heaven invading your life in the earth realm. Another sound we find before God led His troops forward was "the wind in the mulberry trees."

In 2 Samuel 5, David had experienced a major breakthrough in his own life. What had been prophesied over him 29 years prior had actually come into fulfillment. He then had to lead the armies forth into battle. David had one driving purpose: to get the Ark of the Covenant of God back into its rightful position in the midst of God's covenant people. When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed as king, they rose up against him. David defeated the Philistines and drove them out of his jurisdictional authority. However, they regrouped and came back at him again. He asked the Lord if he was to pursue them.

In 2 Samuel 5:24 the Lord answers, "And...when you hear the sound of the marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall advance quickly." The sound of marching was not just the wind blowing the tops of the trees, but the hosts of Heaven and the armies of God rustling the leaves and signifying they were present to help David in victory. This is a month to recognize the angels among us! If we will keep our spirits active and in communion with Holy Spirit, we will begin to see the Presence of God and His Hosts of Heaven that are contending on our behalf.

In the Book of Revelation, we find the real issue is the relationship between the sounds of Heaven and the demonstration of God on earth. Sound leads us forth. Be willing to allow the sounds of Heaven to order your actions today.

Day 3: Read 2 Samuel 11:1 and Daniel 1-4. Months in the Hebraic calendar overlap with months in the Roman calendar. This is the season of spring, and the beginning of the months of direct light. Ask for the spout of revelation to rest on you for the next six months.

Day 4: Read Psalm 107, Exodus 10-12, and Hebrews 9. This is the month of redemption. He paid for you by His BLOOD so you could be released from any prison that is holding you. Therefore, spend this month thanking God for your deliverance and He, as your Deliverer, will position Himself on your path for the year ahead.

Day 5: Read Psalm 90-92, Acts 5, and 19. This is the month of the beginning of miracles--BELIEVE for the impossible!

Day 6: Read Haggai 1-2, and Zechariah 4. This is the month that sets the course for your future. This is the month to decree (by speech) your future. SPEAK FORTH your expected end and declare it will be greater than your beginning.

Day 7: Read Genesis 22. This is the month of the RAM or (lamb). Look for your RAM in the bush. God will begin to reveal Himself as Jireh to you.

Day 8: Read Psalm 26, and Luke 10. This is the month to put your best foot forward--the "right foot" month. Choose to give the Lord your best.

When you are in God's time, you can reconcile His redemptive plan for your life and walk under the spout of His blessings. In God's timing, His secrets and "pregnancy" plan are revealed. In God's timing, your mind is impregnated with His thoughts. When you reconcile your walk with God's timing, what is seeded in your thought processes develops into a full fledged mental expression.

By understanding God's timetable and His ordered monthly plan, you can schedule your affairs and align your earthly appointment book with Heaven. This will cause you to succeed in bringing forth the FULLNESS of God's portion and ultimately fulfilling His plan for you in the earth. This is called experiencing His FULLNESS!

Fullness means the LORD will fill you until you run over; He will fill you until His plan is fulfilled! (John 1:16). The concept of fullness means that there is a place of abundance for you to experience (John 10:10). Fullness occurs when something fills up or comes to completion (Matthew 9:16, Mark 2:21, 6:43, 8:20). Think of the fragments of the fish and loaves that filled the baskets. That is a good example of fullness. The Lord takes what you have, breaks it, blesses it, and then you have more than when you started.

Fullness is happening in your life when the measure of Christ's blessing is overflowing (Romans 15:29). Harvest is linked with fullness. When the salvation of the Gentiles has come into a number that satisfies God's requirement for completeness (Romans 11:25), we have entered into fullness and we will see the God's plan for fullness of the Jews manifested.

Nisan is also a month of redemption. May this be a time of visitation where the presence and power of God invades your space and orders your steps! The redeemed of the Lord will say "SO." This is a time when the burning bush, "I AM," type of worship is coming into the midst of God's people. This is going to release a deliverance call across the earth. When the ROAR of the Lord goes forth, a prophetic mantle falls (Amos 3). Let loose the Roar of the Lord that is deep within you. This will enable you to hear clearly for your future. There will be an anointing to open your "ears." You will sense the Lord break hidden grief that has kept your joy capped.

Shout "Glory!" Release blessings! Express thanksgiving! What you want to do is say, "God, I want to be blessed with the fullness of Your redemptive plan for my life!" What does redemption mean? A price has been paid for you to be unlocked out of every one of your prisons. Make a list of your prisons and then start shouting, "I am coming out!"

Everyone can embrace this call to ascend and become a worship warrior. If we believe in Jesus, we are automatically enlisted in His army. Worship warriors arise! Worship Warriors of every generation, young and old, connect and stand. This is the time to worship, enter boldly into the Throne Room, be clothed with favor, and go to war. The sound is being released. Listen to it, enter the battle and release the Harvest! This is a great time to praise! Feel His Presence overwhelm you!

CATHERINE BROWN from Scotland: "INTIMACY--It's the KEY to UNLOCK HARVEST and Carry His HEART of LOVE to the Nations"

Courtesy of

"We are called as apostolic ambassadors to carry His heart of love to the nations so that the nations may experience the love of His heart."

Catherine Brown"I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! For they are ripe for harvest." John 4:35b

In a recent vision I received, some people approached the Lord and reached out to touch the hem of Jesus, in much the same way as the sick woman who had bled for twelve years (Mark 5:25). It struck me how these dear ones were so heavily burdened and how much the Lord wanted to heal them with just one look of love from His eyes. Have you ever been in that place of being bent over and reaching out in desperation to the Lord for help? It is so important to know He is always willing and always able to lift up our heads and flood our beings with His healing power. As if in affirmation, the Lord spoke in the vision, "See My hands, see My face."

As more people approached the Lord, they held onto His hands, but nonetheless, they seemed unable to look into His loving face. So often, we read how Jesus took others by the hand and healed them. His look of love shattered chains of sickness, bondage and oppression from sin and compelled even the dead to respond with resurrection life. As I pondered how our hands are used for works, the Lord said, "All fruitfulness flows from holy intimacy with Me."

We are healed for harvest, and each one of God's children has a testimony to the Risen Christ that will bless others as it is shared. The Lord Jesus desires for us to have a worship mindset that embraces holy works. From this place of relational security, the Holy Spirit will produce His witness to Christ through us. If we try to approach the harvest from any other perspective than His love, we are in danger of running on empty. Intimacy with God is everything, and without this, we have nothing of any worth to offer to the world.

We cannot hope to be Jesus' hands if we have never seen His face, and yet we cannot see His face unless we receive His pierced hands. In this, we find the paradox of grace. Seeing the Cross is about first believing, and in believing, we perceive and see Him more clearly. In gazing upon the loveliness of Christ, we are blessed to receive the Father. Jesus said, "Anyone who has seen Me, has seen the Father" (John 14:9b).


In the midst of this revelatory experience, I had another beautiful vision of a good friend of mine who has been used by the Lord to usher in revival in a number of nations, including Mozambique. Jesus held my friend face-to-face, and as He held her, rivers of live giving waters poured out from Jesus' belly through her. As He held her in His love-gaze, I watched the flow of His love cause nation after nation to be born again. This picture is not just for one, but for all of those who will answer the Master's call to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom and make disciples of all nations. It occurs to me that the most profound experiences we have, take place in the inner sanctum of our hearts, where the Lord creates moments of holy communion with us in which we are forever changed.

Jesus longs to hold each one of us in a personal face-to-face encounter. When we behold His face, we are enabled and motivated to become His hands reaching out to a hurting world. The birthing of multitudes is born out of the secret place. The secret place of Christ, the Bridegroom King, is where His inner gaze captivates our hearts and makes us lovesick, causing us to overflow from His love. Face-to-face is a place where we are enabled to trust God fully and to rely completely on His love.

Time alone with Christ enables us to surrender in adoration to God's will. Seeking the heart of God is a precursor to seeing His power manifest in our lives and through our lives, into the nations of the earth. God is asking us to restore the altar of devotion as an inward response to His glory. The outward manifestation of such devotion will be fruit that will last for all eternity.

The inner gaze of Christ is a multifaceted experience--a secret moment, a holy tryst and a private place of pilgrimage where Christ becomes our all-in-all and when all our defenses and distractions melt away in the silence of communion with our Savior. The inner gaze of Christ may be described as a place of divine encounter and surrender, when our hearts acknowledge the Lord in absolute obedience and adoration to His will. The inner gaze speaks of a time, a place or a season when our souls become saturated in God's presence, and from this, we often receive a fresh commissioning to walk and work with our Redeemer.

Each one of us is brought to a fresh realization of our need to be filled to overflowing with heavenly manna--the sustenance that can only be found in the rest of the Lord. The writer of Song of Songs tells us that the Bridegroom King has been captivated, "with one glance of your eyes." God longs to remove the veil from our eyes, so that we might know Him more. In such holy moments, the Lord reminds us that He is all-powerful, all-knowing, eternally present, and overflowing in unconditional love. The Lord is captivated by His beautiful Bride, but perhaps we do not always fully comprehend how deeply we are adored by our King of Kings.


Recently as I waited with Jesus, He reminded me that I need to remember to rest in His love and not always be concerned about "the next assignment." As I pondered my deepest desire to be one with my Savior, I realized that I needed to stop and just breathe deeply of His presence and allow myself to receive His love. God began to speak to me about how those in the battlefields must find rest in the company of the Commander of the armies of Heaven. God spoke of His great longing for lonely leaders to come and find fellowship with Him and allow Him to fill up the empty places. He spoke to me of His grace to dismantle every place of defense in our hearts and allow His love to complete us.

When God meets us in such encounters, it is a uniquely individual experience. To the sinner or the saint who seeks the Savior, "they will look on the One they have pierced" and in return will receive the magnificent grace of Christ. One of my most favorite and lovely verses in the Bible is when Jesus looks at the rich, young man, "Jesus looked at him and loved him" (Mark 10:21). Jesus probably knew before He spoke that the young man couldn't do the one thing that was needed: to give his all for Christ--but not even this rejection could prevent Jesus from loving him.

Time spent in God's presence ploughs the furrows of our hearts, planting the seeds of His will and His word deep into our beings to bring forth fruit at the appointed time. When we are alone with God, He is able to both prune and nurture us and bring our minds, will, and emotions into alignment with His perfect plan for our lives. Jesus softens the hard places in us and refreshes the dry places when we make time to worship Him. He readjusts our spiritual eyesight in the places where we are blind to His compassion, so that we are enabled to view things from His perspective and not our own. His eyes of fire are irresistible and draw us to Himself, compelling our consciences to bow down in humility and reverent awe. Jesus wants us to know that lowly is lovely!


In a vision, I was shown three altars in Heaven. One was called the "altar of diligence," one was named the "altar of duty," and the third was the "altar of devotion." Each heavenly altar was truly exquisite, and each burned with a different size of flame, yet, devotion burned the brightest. These altars represent witness (diligence), works (duty), and worship (devotion). The altar of diligence is where the standard of His love is outworked in our actions. The altar of duty is an altar of grace where faith and action meet to do good works, and humility enables us to emulate the obedience of Christ.

On the altar of devotion, I saw beautiful jewels in the flames. This is an altar of love and worship, and the one on which our lives can be spent, bringing much joy to Jesus. On this altar, the fire of the Rock of Ages descends to refine the precious jewel of our faith, producing Christ-likeness in us. Devotion to Christ releases the atmosphere of Heaven into the heart of a worshipper.

Jesus taught, "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God" (Matthew 5). When the altar of devotion burns brightly, our hearts are purified because of the time spent in His holy presence. The eternal purity of Jesus' love reveals His heart in us, and we see Him as He truly is. This "seeing" is not so much about physical vision; rather, it is about being anchored in a covenant relationship of knowing Him and being known by Him. Loving Him creates a desperate longing in us for more of Him, and this earnest longing becomes a catalyst for Godly transformation in our lives. When we are in love, we will reflect His radiance.

True discipleship seeks simply to be like the Master. Converting others is not our primary goal. However, we will positively influence others with the salvation message of the Kingdom when we surrender our lives in honor to God. It is not the vastness of our revelatory knowledge or the clarity of our theology that will capture those whom Jesus has ransomed by His Blood; it is the evidence of our being ravished by holy love and wasted on the wonder of being His which will cause the lost and the prodigals to discover their Redeemer King. What might that evidence look like? It is simply holy, forgiving love that has no earthly agenda.

We run into God's heartbeat for a myriad of reasons, and the Lord longs for us to run out of this encounter with His passion for the multitudes and His Bride. We are called as apostolic ambassadors to carry His heart of love to the nations so that the nations may experience the love of His heart. The Holy Spirit sets our hearts in alignment with the Father's heart. We are anointed and appointed and commanded to love, to teach, to preach, to witness of the Risen Christ, and to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey the Lord. My prayer for each of us is that our onward journeys of faith flow from face-to-face encounters with the Lord.

God bless you as you discover (or rediscover) His love for you today.
