Prepare for Breakout and Rapid Revelations

This evening (9-9-22) I was thanking Abba for the 49 years that my wife and I have been married, thinking back on the words, meetings, visions, and so on – just reminiscing with Holy Spirit, thanking Him for all He has done in our lives.

After chatting about some of the more significant words He has give me over the decades I had what could best be described as a vision (I was awake so it wasn’t a dream).

I was standing under some cooling shade trees along the bank of a small river, upstream the river had significant velocity, but at this point it was slowing down as it entered a large “pond” type of area.

Holy Spirit then took me airborne and I could see dozens of other streams and rivers, that in similar fashion has great velocity and strength in the beginning, but were all entering ponds of there own at various point in the flow.

Holy Spirit began to identify some of the streams

Jesus Movement
And many more.

Holy Spirit spoke to me and said

“All of My streams have had strength and purpose in their beginnings.  Unfortunately, things of man creep in over time and clouded and polluted the streams.  And eventually they faded from sight.  But We knew this would happen and we had prepared settling ponds for each stream, so that over time the sediment and pollution would sink to the bottom of each pond and the rivers would be clear and ready for the next season.

That season is upon you now.  The streams and rivers of the Spirit are about to break out of their retaining ponds and begin to flow in strength and purity as before BUT they will also begin to merge into one mighty river of the spirit.  All that has come before coming together in unity and purpose to bring some of the greatest revelation My people have ever seen or heard about.

The flow will be impossible to stop and it will clear all that lays before it.  Restoring the freshness of My revelation and purpose.  My caution to you this evening – is beware of those who claim to represent individual streams – they represent the sediment of the past.  This is a NEW flow and will not be named but experienced.

So Many Prophecies These Days

I was reading through 2Chronicles 18 yesterday, and I felt a warning. May I share it with you?

First, go read 2 Chronicles 18. But it’s the story about all the prophets prophesying in unanimity to the king, but it turns out they were all prophesying wrong.

Seriously, please go read that story. We’ll wait for you. 

I felt like Father was whispering to me, “Just because they’re a prophet doesn’t mean I gave them that particular message. There are some who prophesy from my heart, some that think they have my heart, but are speaking from a lying spirit. And there are more than you expect who are prophesying out of their own wounded heart, or speaking in order to gather attention. They have their reward.”

It brought to my mind the reality that we have a lot of people prophesying these days. I believe Father is warning me that some prophets are speaking from true motives, some prophets are speaking from deception (I assume that the deception in their prophecies is not intentional; that would be a whole ’nother story).

But there are a whole lot of prophetic voices in our day who are speaking from a mixture of motives.

He reminded me that he gave us the gift of discernment for a reason. If we fail to discern what prophecies (or what parts of some prophecies) are from him, then our own lives will be influenced, even infected, by deceiving spirits or wounded souls.

Then he pointed out that the times are in many ways becoming more complicated, more obstreperous to the Kingdom of God. “My children who build their lives on a well-intended but misguided word will not be equipped to stand strong in these times. And my children who fail to hear and receive the word from my heart because they fear being deceived will also not be equipped to stand strong in these times.”

Discernment – your personal discernment and the discernment of those people to whom you have entrusted your life – is the key for navigating this aspect of this season.

The Current Shaking

I live in a small historic gold rush town. The buildings that line our downtown were constructed in the mid-1800s. The construction materials of choice were brick and mortar. 

While they look strong, if an earthquake takes place the mortar will weaken releasing their hold on the bricks and our cherished history will lay in piles of rubble at our feet. The last significant earthquake in the region happened over 300 years ago. Our downtown was built without that consideration.

In the natural world, prolonged shaking during an earthquake is what produces damage. Once the shaking is over it leaves behind damaged buildings and infrastructures, people are injured or killed and entire regions are left in disarray and ruin.

In God’s kingdom shaking has another purpose. It disassembles the weak things where we mistakenly placed our trust apart from God. After this season of shaking is over, we will have an opportunity to work in concert with the Spirit to construct new and lasting spiritual structures able to endure the trauma that always comes with living on the fault lines of an unstable world.

So much is shaking in our world. We are currently living through a prolonged social quake. God is allowing this shaking to take place to disempower those things not worthy of our trust. Misplaced trust is like the mortar between bricks. It will crumble under the influence of intense shaking.

Every spiritual shaking throughout the history of the Church has caused us to reevaluate where we have placed our trust. Any rebuilding process we engage in will hopefully consider that issue. Everything around us can fall to the ground but our hope will always be secure if we have placed our trust in Jesus Christ and Him alone.

The Lord experienced an earthquake when the stone was rolled away from the entrance to His tomb. “Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it” (Matthew 28:2).

Resurrection followed that shaking 2,000 years ago and it will follow the shaking we are now experiencing. A season of shaking will always carry with it the promise of resurrection and reconstruction if our hope has been placed in the faithfulness and goodness of God.

Monocropping. Monocropping is the agricultural practice of growing a single crop year after year on the same land, in the absence of rotation through other crops or growing multiple crops on the same land (polyculture).

Last night and again this morning I heard “monocropping.” As I listened further I heard “Monoculture, monocrops, monochurch, monobusiness, monoschools, monohealthcare. I am forcing them to become cross pollinated for their own good. I’m releasing my cross pollinators that I have prepared. They will release small ‘tongues of fire’ (Acts 2) that will burn up the monofields created by the principalities, powers, world rulers of this present darkness, and the spiritual hosts of wickedness (Ephesians. 6:12).”

I then saw hunters (Jeremiah 16:16) approaching vast monocropping fields with their bows and arrows. The tips of arrows would ignite with a flame when released from the bow and wherever they landed in the field they would start a small fire. Soon the monocrop was ablaze. After the blaze died down, I was amazed to see some of the crop still standing and untouched by the blaze. The field was full of such ones. (Daniel 3:8-25).

I then heard, “The job of the hunter is direct and straight forward. After they release their arrows, their assignment is complete. Pray for the release of the hunters. Pray for those in the fields that are still standing in the conflagration as I destroy the works of darkness and release them for they are the laborers that you have been praying for me to cast into the harvest fields.” (Luke 10:2).

I then heard, “I am releasing from the monochurch those who I prepared for the harvest. You will see them appear next to you in the harvest field. They are bringing my goodness and my abundance that I have placed in them. They are not novice. They have been kept in reserve until this hour. I am releasing them into the harvest field with you. They will help change your thinking and cross pollinate with you. Some I have assigned to come alongside of you for a long season. Others for a short season. And, other only briefly.

Honor and bless them as they come and go. As this process takes place it will magnify and multiply the harvest. You will notice that there are no threshing floors or grain silos for this harvest. That is because this harvest is designed to be immediately employed as new harvesters. I will do a quick work of transforming them from harvest to harvesters. Do not hold the new harvesters back. Do not think they are not ready for I have prepared them. I am doing a quick work. This is not the final harvest but only the first wave of the greater harvest.”

The Arrival of Long-Range Prophecies

As anyone can sense who is in tune with the Spirit and what is taking place on the world stage, we are living in a strategic time of human history. Events are unfolding that if not interpreted properly could create a sense of despair. Prophecy is a gift that will help us interpret these times and respond appropriately. Old and in some cases, ancient unfulfilled prophecies are arriving at this time and they have a message for the Church. 

I recently watched a video about a competitive long-range shooter. He did not shoot at 200 or 300 hundred yards. His distance was not 500 or 1,000 yards. He was attempting a shot at 2,240 yards – a mile and a quarter away using a hundred-year-old Swiss Army rifle with open sights. His target was a life-size steel buffalo. Once on target, he made repeated hits. It was an amazing feat.

Prophetic words are beginning to arrive that were sent downrange long ago traveling across great expanses of time and space to be delivered at this moment in history. When the Lord asked His prophets to speak these words those uttering them may have thought they sounded unusual and without application at the time of their inception. These prophets spoke with unqualified obedience. When their words finally arrive at our place in history, they will also appear out of context because they were spoken in a language and with a mode of delivery that might appear strange to our ears.

Unusual will be a word used to describe these incoming prophecies. Do not be dismissive when these words arrive. Unpack them carefully with wisdom and mercy, not with immediate dismissal. Look past the packaging and mode of delivery to discover the core content of the word. Be willing to discern their message with an open and receptive heart. If you can do this you will become a prophetic target of fulfillment and a carrier of supernatural resolutions to the most vexing situations of our day.

“THE STAND”: Word of the Lord from the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders for 2021 & Beyond

A time of stark contrast follows the aftermath of the reset. When you turn off your phone, it goes black, and then it comes back when you turn it back on. So we are now living what has been reset. The reset button has been pushed and it creates a stark contrast.
One of the scriptures that exemplifies this contrast the most is found in Matthew 24:6–8.
“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:6-8 NKJV
• Persecution
Persecutions will deepen, and in contrast, the greatest revival the earth has ever known is upon us. One primary manifestation of this revival will be in the Middle East, in nations such as Sudan who have aligned with Israel.
• Men’s Hearts will Grow Cold
“For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,” 2 Timothy 3:2–4 NKJV
Even in the midst of great moves of God, the contrasts between good and evil will become more apparent. In the United States, this manifestation will be seen in government structures as some become more godly and others turn away deeper and further from God.

• Wars and Rumors of Wars
Watch China carefully. There is the threat of the red dragon militarizing against the United States and other countries, especially Taiwan. While there will come a time when the Bamboo Curtain will fall, and when China will lead in world economics, it is not to happen under a Communist Regime. Satan wants to change the times and seasons, but if those who follow the Lion of Judah will cry out in intercession, the Communist takeover will not advance.
The Red Dragon wants to swallow up Vietnam and South East Asia, as well as Korea. As “Gatekeepers of Prayer” we cannot allow this to occur. If Japan tries to “ally” with China, she will find herself devoured also. This dragon has an insatiable appetite for a ruling empire. In fact, there is an empire spirit or dominion that is on the move. As big a threat as Islam has been to the world, Communism is a greater threat in this era.
• A Chinese Pearl Harbor has taken place. Watch for more ways in which China will gain access to the USA through kickbacks, election-tampering, and sabotage. Satan has many plans, but if we pray there will be a great checkmate of Satan’s plans.
There are shakings happening between political systems, but there will also be physical manifestations. It is not that these shakings are not already happening, but the frequency will escalate including volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and the like. The whole earth is groaning. There will be new political parties that will be taking shape; they will be formed and increase in influence.
For the United States, the reconstruction after the Civil War got derailed and was left incomplete. God is going to move upon this issue once again to bring about a more complete justice. The godly righteous remnant of the African-American community will arise and become very visible in leading the way to seeing this justice movement happen. These shakings will ultimately result in a justice movement that brings long-term change.
Political systems that support abortion will also be shaken and affected economically.
• Re-aligning of Nations
There will be alignments that will be made both in the positive and in the negative. China/Russia/Iran will move towards closer alignments. Some of these alignments will even be surprising. However, the bear and the dragon will come to odds against each other, if we pray. Iran’s government in the coming years will fall; it will happen seemingly overnight. God is watching how they persecute the believers in their land. There will be a great global re-organizing in preparation for the end-times. We are seeing the prophetic beginning of the Isaiah 19 Highway forming before our eyes!
• Rogue Operatives
Detailed exposures will take place of both China and Russia. God loves the Chinese and the Russian people. This is not anything negative towards the church in China and Russia. Great revivals and renewals are coming!
• A Bumpy Road
Civil unrest will continue in the United States. It will, in fact, escalate. The prophets called for emergency preparedness. All may not be needed, but crisis preparation, as far as food, water, and supplies, is dictated by wisdom. We have given previous warnings about a possible civil war on U.S. soil and we are seeing the groundwork for that being laid—but God! More exposures will take place in both political parties…layers upon layers until the root is exposed and the axe can be laid to the root. This is not only for the United States, but will occur worldwide.
The year 2021 will seem to have some of the same characteristics as 2020. However, the Body of Christ will learn to thrive and not just survive.
The economies of states will shake and there will be a great suffering of the people in those states if they do not turn from wickedness. However, just as in Egypt during the plagues, God’s people will be protected and prosper.
It is in the balance whether or not the whole of the United States will take a huge downturn.
It is a time for war. The bride of Christ must put on combat boots and be prepared for battle. We must resist Satan and he will flee! Teaching on how to wage war against the enemy is essential. Angelic hosts are being released to assist us as we war on earth and they war in the heavens.
• This includes Faith over Fear
Men’s hearts will fail from fear, but God will cause His remnant of overcomers to overcome. This remnant has learned to stand on the word with faith and not fear.
• This includes Peace as a Weapon
We will walk in a new level of peace that will be a weapon against distress! “And soon the God of Peace will crush Satan even under His feet.”
The amount of glory we are going to see released in this new era after the reset will come in suddenlies. Those who have been crying out for revival will suddenly see, receive, and experience a great revival. This revival will transform societies and raise up reformers in all areas of society. The revival and awakening will not only be for the saving of souls, but for the healing of nations. Miracles will be commonplace in the marketplace and in Hollywood.
This will also lead to a renaissance in the arts with great creative anointing being displayed through worship and other art forms such as painting, sculpture, and dance.
Another sign and wonder of this glory awakening will be spontaneous deliverances. People bound in drugs, pornography, and other addictions will be set free. The ministry of deliverance will once again be front and center in the church.
There will be a release of glory and, not unlike the Book of Acts, there will be resistance to the moves of God. Note that when miracles in the book of Acts took place, Satan stirred up those in idolatry and in the religious system against it. However, this only caused the church to increase and multiply!
• This Includes the Refiners Fire
The Lord is watching our reactions, even to things that Satan is putting in our way. We are called to be overcomers. We cannot forget that we are being “trained to reign” for eternity. We are in the end-times and this world is not our home. While we are responsible to steward this world and disciple it, this is just the beginning of our lives. We are in the midst of the “Refiner’s Fire”.
• This Includes a Time to Build
Just as in Nehemiah’s day, we will “arise and build” in the midst of chaotic times. We will learn to build with a sword in one hand and a trowel in the other. Don’t come down off of the wall no matter what the enemy throws at you!
It is now as in the Days of Noah, but God will enable us to stand with these five words, all starting with the letter P!
• 1) Protection • 2) Provision • 3) Preservation • 4) Presence • 5) Promise
For those of us who are standing on the promises, we will experience protection, provision, preservation, presence, and promise. We will triumph in the days ahead.
The remnant church will take a stand against evil that comes against them, both personally and corporately, and they will win! Ephesians 6 will become a major theme once again. Worship will be both a weapon of war and the means to not become battle-fatigued in this season.
There is a calling to use as weapons of warfare all the previous words given through the years; one was “The Turn Around Year,” another was the “Suddenlies.” Those who believe and apply this convergence of prophecy will triumph!
Let’s stand on the promises of God’s Word together and see the Glory Awakening Arise in Jesus’ Great Name!
Having Done All, We Stand!

Discerning the Global Reset

Since the beginning of time, false representations of reality have been offered as counterfeits to God’s truth. There are two definitions of a global reset being offered at this time. One reset is empowered by God, and the other is empowered by darkness. Masking language is being used to draw believers who lack discernment toward the counterfeit, defending its proposals as evidence of their tolerance.     

The Gospel is always inviting but never tolerant of things that will ultimately harm us. Not agreeing with the ideology of a dark reset that will ultimately destroy individual lives and societies does not make one intolerant. It is an expression of love.
A few years ago, I began to write and speak about a reset that would take place in the Church. It would be a reset that starts us on a refocusing journey where we would begin to see the Church and its mission with new eyes. Instead of getting more complicated, our expression of faith would enter a simpler expression, void of complicated religious baggage, language, and unhealthy alliances. 

At the end of the resetting and refocusing, we would enter a resting place, where we would receive fresh revelation about how we can move forward into the future. This revelation would only be available to those willing to reset, refocus, and rest.
Whenever you hear the word “reset,” make sure you discern the spirit using the word. The reset Jesus offers leads to freedom, freedom of our will. This is the kind of freedom only found in the Spirit. The counterfeit reset will lead to control and demands of conformity to agendas that have at their core a spirit of death. Any refusal to follow the dictates of that dark reset will carry the shaming label of intolerance.
As a defining clarity is taking place regarding the two resets, a definition within the Church is also taking place regarding cultural reformation. On one side are those who view reformation as a way to control people and culture, much like the false reset. They see the assignment of the Church as creating a theocracy on earth and directing culture by demands of conformity to a particular expression of faith. 
On the other side are those who believe the Church’s work is best expressed in culture as an opportunity to help a culture flourish under the influence of believers embedded within its institutions. These embedded ones seek the highest good for each individual while never backing away from speaking the truth in love. The latter expression of reformation is where the power of God’s Spirit is delivered. 

This kind of Heaven-empowered reformation is so powerful that it cannot be controlled by religious or political spirits. It will endure through the tumultuous and challenging seasons of upheaval each society will experience as it matures. 

That is the kind of reformation where the reset of Heaven is taking place. The by-product of the reset will draw people to the love of God and ultimately transform the heart of a nation.

Go, Dust Him Off

In the Spirit, I saw an older man walk out of a cave. He was wearing an Australian duster coat and a large Aussie hat. He was covered in dust from being in a cave for years.

Holy Spirit said, “Go, dust him off.”

As I did so, I thought to myself that this man, through life circumstances, had chosen to hide in the cave.

Holy Spirit corrected me, saying, “I hid him. He cooperated with me and stayed hidden. I am bringing him out now and releasing him for this hour. He has understanding, wisdom, strategy and revelation that is needed right now.

He walks in the fear of the Lord. Listen to him. Cooperate with him.”


Organic Revival

The “Toronto Blessing had been going on for a couple of years, and the pastor decided to take a trip, without telling the congregation, to Toronto to check it out.

Upon his return he had a special meeting to tell everyone what he had been up to.

What I would call my very first “vision” happened during that meeting.

In the vision I saw a map of Oregon. It was as if the map was covered with wax, and a fine mist was being sprayed on the wax.

At first you couldn't see anything, then tiny drops of water all over the map. Soon the drops became bigger, and started to coalesce into small puddles.

I asked, “What does that mean.” 

The thought that came to mind was, “This is how the next revival will start. There will be no heroes, there will only be me influencing regular people all over the (in the vision) state.

“One person will touch another person, who will touch another and so on, forming organic communities, churches if you will, of people on fire for God, without regard to whatever ‘church’ they came from.”

Battle Preparations: Relax, He’s Got This.

Last night I had several things on my mind as I got into bed. I listened to an audiobook for a while, trying to quiet my mind – worry isn’t great when you are trying to go to sleep. Not at all!

I had a dream that we were going into a battle or some type of war and all our soldiers were infants or toddlers – not battle-worthy in the least. This “war” wasn’t necessarily about bombs and guns but it was something coming up that would need to be fought for – and I was worried we would not be ready. I fretted about how this army could even begin to help the situation. I woke up then went back to sleep.

I’m not sure if I actually woke up or if that was part of the dream but some time had passed, like maybe a year. I took another look at our “army” and they were totally matured and ready to fight. They were all even in matching uniforms…black if I recall correctly.

I was astounded! How did that happen? My worries and fretting completely disappeared, to be replaced by encouragement and actually enlightenment. I suddenly know that we would win and my worries had been groundless. I was sure there would be no problem, it would be handled and would be successful.

I needed to trust and not have to figure everything out, it would be okay and everything would work out. There was a plan.

I (really) woke up and knew that this was, at least in part about some things I had been worrying about before going to sleep. I also think this dream was a reminder for some other things people might be concerned or worrying about. God has a plan! I “heard” the Digital Warriors will be ready -they look young and too immature but they WILL be ready when they are needed.

He knows the end from the beginning. He is outside of time as we know it and is moving the chess pieces around to where and when they need to be, whether we know it or not.

Breathe, He’s got this! And He’s got you.

Tsunami of Love

I was walking along the beach right where the sand and ocean waves meet.  I had my eyes down searching the sand for treasure when all of the sudden sirens began to sound.  I knew it was a Tsunami siren and I looked up to see chaos all around me. 

People were in a panic.  They were screaming, shouting, grabbing their items and running away from the ocean.  Not one person looked up from what they were doing to survey their surroundings.  Not one person offered to help anyone else.  It was each man, woman and child for themselves.

With all the pandemonium going on around me, I felt at peace. I turned away from all the chaos and people to face the ocean and looked heavenward and lifted my hands in the air. I began to pray and praise God. I was singing “More than anything Jesus, I just want you! ….”

I continued to stand, arms raised to the sky, singing. I looked out to the ocean and saw the Tsunami wave on the horizon.  I knew it was too late to try to run, and yet I didn’t feel the need to run. I felt compelled to stand my ground.  The peaceful feeling never left me as the huge wall of water several stories high came rushing right towards me. 

Then I heard a whisper coming from heaven. It was hard to hear over the pandemonium unless you were intently listening for it. It said: “I am sending a Tsunami of My Love.”

Just as the skyscraper tall wave began to bend downwards towards me to crash against the beach, where I stood, I immediately sat up in bed gasping for air.

My heart was racing, and I realized, it was only a dream, yet it felt so real.  I could hear the roaring ocean, the siren alarm and people screaming.  The panic in the air was palpable.  I felt the misty ocean breeze on my face as the wind rushed by. Drops of water had been falling on me and I was fully drenched before the wave even hit the shore.

Once fully awaken from this dream and all else was silent and still, I heard the phrase again, “I am sending a Tsunami of My Love.”  It was louder this time and not just a whisper.

This dream encounter occurred back in April right after Easter.  I haven’t talked very much about it to anyone as I have sought the Lord regarding more of His message.

• Sometimes God gives us a glimpse of what is to come so we can pray over it and pray into it.

• Sometimes He shows us things so we can position ourselves to receive and not miss what He is doing.

• Sometimes He gives us advance notice so we can share it with others and we can prepare our hearts.

Cry for Revival

God’s people are crying for revival. We long to see Him come rushing in with His fire and power like revivals of old.  We long to see Him pour out His Spirit and have miracles, signs and wonders occur. We desire for people to come into the Kingdom of God and be born again.

Yet revival will not come until we get our hearts right with God and with one another.   We need to get our eyes off the natural and turn them heavenward.

We need to stop looking out for only ourselves and looking towards the needs of others.  We must not panic or become distracted when warning alarms are sounding around us.  We must resist joining in the chaos and pandemonium. Instead we need to trust and seek the voice of God and hear what He has to say.  We need to stand in our position as sons and daughters.  We need to position ourselves before the Lord so we can receive His love and release it to the world.

Jesus taught the greatest commandment was to love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and soul and to love your neighbor as yourself.  (Matthew 22:36-40)

God is sending a tsunami of His love. It will begin in the west and spread across the nation.  It’s a love so powerful that we only have eyes for Him and His Kingdom.  We will set aside our agendas and our desires.  We will set aside our prejudices and get swept away by Him. As we stand in His presence, peace will flow.  As we position ourselves before the Lord, this wave will not destroy us, but we will be caught up and carried away in His love.

Yes, a revival is coming, a revival of His love. God’s love will transform us and the world around us.This revival of love is the first wave of revival.  We must stand our ground, stay at peace and listen.

A great harvest of souls for the Kingdom will follow.  But it must first start with individuals and our hearts.  Our hearts must be for the Kingdom of God and not against. Our hearts must be for unity and not division. Our hearts must be filled with love, His love.

A Tsunami of His Love is coming! Are you ready?

Don’t Give Up On The Trail

You're blazing a trail.

There are a number of people who have been laboring hard in the Kingdom for some time now, and have been wondering, “Where are my co-laborers? Where are the others who are called to this work with me?”

If they are not careful, they’ll find themselves getting discouraged. “I’m out here, all alone.” 

Elijah did it. “Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me”

But the truth is that there’s a reason that you’re feeling alone in the work: you’re blazing the trail for others to follow, and the trail isn't ready yet. Until you finish the trail, they can’t get to you, they can’t reach you until the trail is complete.

Don’t fall victim to the lie that says you’re the only one left. It wasn’t true in Elijah’s time, and it’s not true in yours. There are many others out there. But some of the ones that are nearest to you are cutting their own trails; they’re not helping you cut yours.

You do rest sometimes from the hard work of cutting trail, right? So take that time to make friends with other trailblazers nearby. Have a barbecue or a potluck dinner, and invite some people over. Get to know others who are doing the same kind of work you’re doing. Learn from them. Share how you’re doing. Maybe pray for each other.

But don’t give up on the trail. There’s a lot of people back there, looking to follow the trail you’re blazing, or one of your co-laborers. And they can’t come and settle the new territory until the trail is cut. Don’t give up on your work.

2019 A Season of – “Yes they can!”

Every year for as long as I can remember the Lord has given me my personal word for the upcoming year, and sometimes it would be a bit bigger and meant for a couple of others as well. But the word I received this morning for 2019 is monstrously BIG and meant for a wide range of individuals.

Very early this morning the Lord gave me a dream that actually had me falling under the Spirit while in the dream in a way that I have not experienced in 50 years of dreams…to say it was exciting would be an understatement. Holy Spirit and I talked about the dream for probably a hour (2 am – 3 am) this morning and this is what I can share. It’s a bit long so I beg your patience.

In the first scene I was young man (in my late teens early 20s) in Northern California (I’m from Oroville), and a large group of us were talking about the recent fires and our upcoming group gathering up in the mountains.

In the second scene I was driving a white Toyota coupe (like a Celica) to the gathering. I made a left hand turn onto a narrow two lane highway and headed north. After a short period of time I began to see burned out cabins and trees, then I came upon a small group (four or five) people that were cleaning up what they could of their belongings and getting into their car and heading back the way I just came towards town.

In the next scene I turned right onto another two lane road and headed towards the mountains. I came to the point where I was supposed to turn to the right again but the road had been significantly destroyed by the fire. It was twisted and laying at about a 45 degree angle. (I’ve seen damage like this following Katrina while in Mississippi – but not from fire). I saw a detour sign and realized that I had missed a turn and went back down the road a ways.

In the next scene I came upon what looked like a detour and turned on it. But after a short ways I found myself heading towards a school building and I was beginning to drive on what appeared to be scaffolding. I just punched the gas, jumping from spot to spot until I came to a point where there was someone outside that stopped me from going any further because “they” didn’t think it was safe.

In the next scene I was able to make it back down the hillside and met up with some of our group heading to the correct detour. I had to leave my car and I was frustrated, but glad to be moving again. I was sitting up front in the passenger seat, when my grandfather began to get car sick. We made a left hand turn down “Sandy” road and came to a spot where we could stop and he could get out for a breath of fresh air.

In the next scene I saw that we were on the other side of the school and I could see my car, and the fact that there was a way for me to keep on going from there. So I jumped out, but had to chase a few toddlers back to the car. A friend and I made our way back to my car. As we were about to get in the car I heard a beautiful female voice signing and we stopped and went in looking to see who it was.

In the next scene we saw the young lady heading into a class room, still singing, and several others had joined singing in the hallway.

In the final scene I came under the power of the Holy Spirit and I heard Him say “1968 – The Summer of Lost Innocence” and I felt impressed that there needed to be a concert for the fire victims in the area focusing on the past promises God had made and how they were only delayed not destroyed…I was then transported to current time and thought of several friends that had lost everything in the Paradise – Camp Fire. Then I woke up.

Holy Spirit and I began to talk about the dream, He impressed upon me that,

“This is a dream within a dream and more complex that you’ve had in the past…it is meant to speak to multiple people, from multiple generations, about multiple problems – but that ALL WOULD SEE A ‘YES THEY CAN’ DO IT season in 2019. A season to revive destroyed dreams and promises, to OVERCOME the numerous times they’ve been told “no you can’t do that” by people in authority.

“This is a season of revived revelation of past dreams and authority that have been gathering dust because they’ve been told no over and over and over again. This is a SEASON OF YES, a season to recover and to remember the past dreams – for some over 50 years ago during the summer of ’68 and the year of lost innocence. This is their time, their season, to step into YES. It is for individuals, it is for groups, it is so big.

“Just last week you talked with a friend about how you haven’t done all that you know that I have called you to do because it is SO BIG that it is almost scary – I say to you I’m BIGGER and I’ve called you, I’ve prepared you, I’ve equipped you – now STEP INTO YOUR SEASON OF YES. They can’t stop you any longer!

“I need all of Our children to understand, this is the most NOW season they will experience in their lifetime – this is so big, for so many, that they will tend to default to their past memories and experiences – STOP – and grasp what I’m saying … YES YOU CAN DO THIS.”

Be blissed my friends and may 2019 be AWESOME in the Lord.
