Five-Fold Today - The First Fruit of Wisdom and Knowledge - Road to Emmaus - Calling out of darkness - Mercy Triumphs Over Judgement - Shed False Humility and Embrace God's Reality - Bombshells Are About To Explode - Trust The Lord To Be Who He Says He Is - I Will Restore the Years


Michael Danforth

It has been said, that more prayer has gone up in the last two years, than in the last twenty years. This I believe and rejoice greatly, and boldly declare with much confidence, that we are progressively receiving a new government in this nation as well as in the church of Jesus Christ. God as heard the cry of His people and He is bringing them out because they are heeding to His voice to enter into the kingdom of God and His righteousness.

Earlier in the year I heard these words ring in my spirit, "the fear of God is coming back into the church and then in the earth." I immediately thought of Proverbs 1:7 that says, "the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction." The fear of the Lord is the "re'shiyth" of knowledge. The fear of the Lord is also the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. (Prov 9:10)

This Hebrew word for beginning is defined as the "first fruit" of knowledge and wisdom. Get ready, because the first fruit of knowledge and wisdom which is the fear of God, is about to become fully manifested in the church. In other words respect and reverence toward God is coming back into the hearts of His people. The first sign of this restoration will be the return of the fear of God. This particular Godly fear will come through various forms. We will begin to see signs of it coming through the government of this nation and other nations, as well as predominately in the church.

We are receiving a leadership that is God seeking rather than self-seeking. His body is giving birth to a new leadership that is determined to leave an inheritance for the children, rather than the children for leaders. No longer will God tolerate His anointed using His people as a means to build their house rather than the house of God. As the affections of these new fathers and mothers become apparent, a new respect and reverence for the divine order of God will return to the hearts of humanity, both partially in the world and fully in His church.

As a people chosen by God, we will respect and reverence faith in God above every doubt and unbelief that has seemingly been prevailing in His Body. We will respect the love of God over every hateful deception that has been warring against us in the earth. We will give more respect and reverence toward forgiveness instead of unforgiveness. We will respect the peace of God more than the restlessness of our own souls. We will fear the one that can destroy the body and soul rather than the one that can destroy just the body.

We will give more respect to the divine nature of Jesus Christ working in these earthly bodies than we will the divination of satan. The restoration of fear of the Lord will be our instruction of Wisdom and will bring us into a humility that will declare many honors to the Lord and His bride. (Prov 15:33) This newly founded fear will lead us to life and he who has it will abide in satisfaction, and we will not be visited with evil, because our fear for God will be greater. (Prov19:23) Through humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life. (Prov 22:4) We will be zealous for the fear of the Lord the rest of our days and our hope will not be cut off. (Prov 23:17-18)

The key to getting a hold of this first fruit of knowledge is by entering into the kingdom of God. Jesus said, "Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in, you hindered." (Lk 11:52)

We must come out of the old man and enter into the new one. There is a difference between having Christ in us verses us entering into Him. There is a difference between having the divine nature of Christ and His divine nature having us. To enter in means that we are to enter into His rest. In this position of rest we no longer see things as being incomplete but we see them as finished. It's time for leaders across this nation to enter into the finished realm of God's kingdom, by not entering in we hinder others from doing the same. In these next few months God is going to deal with those hindrances more severely, especially in the places of government.

And lastly, we are going to begin to see houses of wisdom and understanding rise up in the land. Just like in the days of Solomon people will gather from miles around to remote areas across the country to hear men and women who have taken on the wisdom and understanding of God. As centers of prayer and worship continue to spring up, a fresh new knowledge of God's spirit will run like a mighty river through out the land. The church has been pursuing many gifts of the spirit and for the most part overlooking two important foundational ingredients, wisdom and knowledge.

But no longer will this be the case, for the hidden ones in Christ have been tucked away for such a time as this. Now the invisible is becoming visible, that which has been hidden shall be revealed, not the darks secrets of man, but the treasures of God's kingdom that has been concealed in earthen vessels for these last days. Let us set our hearts to receive the "first fruit" of God's wisdom and knowledge.

For just as I appeared to my 2 disciples on the road to Emmaus - Appeared to them yet they did not recognize me - So it is with many of my people this day.

For I have come to answer your prayers - But you still do not see that I AM walking with you along that road that you are on.

For I have sent many to speak to you in my name - Yet you do not see That I AM dwelling within them - Did not your heart burn within you when they spoke My Word unto you - Yet your eyes did not see I AM within my servants before you says the Lord.

For I AM within the baker who gives you bread - Gives you the bread of life - Within the widow that you see walking alone down the street within her tears loneliness - The tears that I cry for you when you do not recognize my sent ones says the Lord.

For I AM in the Child you see walking alone to school - Walking alone because they does not fit into the mould that the world tries to squeeze them into - The mould that you try to squeeze me into says the Lord.

Yes I AM also within that tramp that you despise when you say within your heart - Look at the that - Look at that mess - I do not want to touch THAT in case I catch something bad from him - Do you know that I Have sent angels to test your hearts - Test your hearts so that you can see what is really within you - For as my Word says - That the heart of man is desperately wicked - Deceiving itself above all - Not knowing that in itself it is deceived - Deceived by its desires and wants.

Remember that cross when took your disease - Took your sins upon my body - When I caught the disease of your sins off you.

Come - Let me open your eyes - For I AM there before you - There within those before you - There with those that walk along the road with you.

Come - Repent - Let me cleanse your hearts - Let me open your eyes - For I AM there in the midst of you says the Lord.

For I gave some to be apostles - Some to be prophets - Some to be teachers - Some to be pastors - Some to be evangelists says the Lord.

Look around you - For they are among you - They are that baker that gives you the bread of life that take for granted - They are that widow that cries in her loneliness - Cries for the lost and lonely of this world - In that school child that gets bullied because they do not fit into the mould that other try to force them into - In that tramp that you look down on - That tramp that needs healing - For I came into the world - Yet my people despised me - Despised me for I did not come as they expected me to come - For my people did not truly recognize who I AM.

Come - My people come - Take my hand that I may open your eyes - Take my hand And Come with me to my house - For I wish to break bread with you - For I AM the bread - I AM the wine says the Lord.

Come Break bread with me - For it is then that your eyes will be opened unto me - Will be opened unto me in those around you - For it is for this reason that some of you are sick and even fall asleep - This reason that much of my body is weak in this world - For you have not discerned my body before you says the Lord.

Come - Repent - For I wish to raise you up - Wish to open your eyes to those around you - Open your eyes unto my servants on the road with you - Truly Open your eyes unto me.

For I AM walking along that road - Walking with you along that road to EMMAUS says the Lord.

Calling out of darkness......

Linda Evans

I have, for the past two years, been hearing from the Lord concerning an "insanity" -- a chaos which is coming on the earth. A chaos represented in Scripture by many different expressions. One example is when the Lord removes the lights/talents from those who did nothing with them (buried their talents or held only "Life-insurance" Christianity) and He gives them to the ones who already have much light/many talents... In this parable, we see the dark becoming darker, as the lights are gathered into pockets -- gatherings of light. Where there was a type of 'greyness' created by the light spread out over all the world, there now is a great separation -- the light becomes lighter, but the grey becomes pitch black.

This black is that chaos and insanity which we have begun to sense lies just under the surface of society.. erupting with more and more frequency and intensity. When the One who restrains, no longer restrains, this darkness shall come upon all those who have no protection (those not covered in the Blood of the Lamb) and insanity/chaos shall become rampant. Without the covering of the Lamb, everyone is vulnerable to this evil, and even in the Church, to the degree that we have held onto a "love for unrighteousness"... willful sin, we are vulnerable. This is the reason the Lord has been bringing His Church through such a time of unveiling... showing us the reality of our black-hearts, that we might fall to our knees in fresh repentance and consecration unto Him... giving us this great and glorious opportunity to willingly surrender ALL to Him, to be able to walk forth into the darkness as a greater light than we have been before. This is that two-fold work as revealed in the parable.. the dark gets darker, but the light also gets lighter.

In my consideration of this insanity-chaos-darkness coming.. the Lord spoke "just like Viet Nam"... and I realized then what was so different about this war than any other... and just why so many of the Vets who "survived" this war, physically, did not survive it spiritually.

They have experienced this chaos, this insanity.. in a foretaste or foreshadowing of what the entire world shall know soon. Those who went into this "Spiritual Environment" entered a powerful demonic stronghold, without any spiritual protection (The Blood of Jesus; the Armor provided by God in Eph 6) and were immersed into this insanity.. possessed by it -- fully given over to the forces of darkness and made pawns in the hands of evil.

They had no way to stop it; the more they turned to drugs and alcohol to escape what their spirits could not endure, they became more and more enveloped, possessed, consumed in it. They were ultimately consumed BY it, and then came the ultimate demonic doublecross. The darkness lifted and like the prodigal son, they returned to "their right minds".. right minds which could not bear to live with the memories of what "they" had done. The flash backs.. the memories now being demonically used to torment them for the rest of their lives; torment which has held so many of them captive since the 60s; torment which has caused so much suicide, for without deliverance and healing, they have no peace -- no way to escape from the insanity.

Without the spiritual revelation/knowledge that they were actually "pawns" in the hands of ultimate evil, they have had to try to justify their obscene/perverted/demonic actions... actions of complete inhumanity... and it has been impossible. Without understanding "why" they became so inhumane, they have remained prisoners in their own confusion, shame and guilt, unable to live with themselves or others.

I believe there is a key here that the Church can use to open these prison doors for the sake of the Viet Nam Vets... and there is a key here for understanding the seriousness of what we face in these unfolding chaotic world events. There is also a great warning, for we have seen the devastating effect of this chaos/insanity ... in a relatively small number of people... Can we even begin to imagine what it will be like in a world-wide application?

May the intercessors join together now, with this cry for the deliverance of these men from the insanity.. may the Church be given these lives to bring to Christ Jesus... and may these gifts to the Church become a mighty army of trained and prepared warriors to lead others through the chaos which is coming. May the Lord take this training these dear lost ones have experienced and turn and use it for Good.

May we stand in the gap and lift these brothers/sisters to the Throne of Grace, asking for the freedom they still need. Let us lay hold of the promises given in Romans 8:28, claiming everyone of these for Jesus and the Kingdom of Light, asking that their 'training' would now be completed, and be used to prepare others for the reality of entering into the stronghold of evil with knowledge and preparation... covered in the Blood of Christ.

May we join together and overcome this evil by the Blood of the Lamb... May these warriors go free from the residual of this insanity, as the Holy Spirit comes and washes their minds with the Blood of Christ, and restores the purity and innocence which was stolen from them. May these arise now from the death which has held them captive, and come forth as Lazarus, set free from the grave clothes, clothed now in the Robes of the King.

Take seriously this coming insanity dear Church... and embrace the Sanctifying Work of the Holy Spirit, as He prepares a people of Christ Jesus.. the sons of Light, who shall war against the sons of darkness.

Reference Scriptures, recorded as prayed while in the spirit to receive this word for you.
James 2:13; Isaiah 63:9; Isaiah 65:1; 2 Peter 3:9; Ezra 3:11-13 I heard the Lord say:

"Judgement without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgement. For in all their distress I have been distressed, and the angel of My presence has saved them. In My love and mercy I will redeemed them. I will lift them up and carry them all the days of old. I will reveal Myself to those who did not ask for Me; to a nation that did not call on My name. I will say, 'Here am I, here am I.' For I am not slow in keeping My promise, as some understand slowness. I have been patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish. I want everyone to come to repentance.

With praise and thanksgiving you will sing to Me,
'He is good; His love to Israel endures forever.'

And all the people will give a great shout of praise to the Me, because the foundation of My house is laid. Many of the older priest and Levites and family heads, who had seen the former temple will wept aloud when they see the foundation of this temple being laid, and many others will shout for joy. No one will be able to distinguish the shouts of joy from the sound of weeping, because the people will make, and are making even now, so much noise.

And the sound was heard far away."

I was walking the streets of Tidewater Virginia. There seems to be two groups of people, only two walking wherever they pleased in this area. Those with badges on , and those who refused them. Of course they were from every different ethnic, age, economic group, and status of life. They were intermingled within each of the two divisions apparently without any reasoning I could tell of. One group was called "I"m right.", the other "You're wrong." Now even these two distinguishing names began to be intertwined and it was hard after awhile to distinguish who belonged to which group. Some people were taking off their badges, and throwing them away. Others were boldly walking up to those with badges and taking them off. It seemed like now, or rather SUDDENLY, all the badges were gone, no one had any to put on or take off. The Lord had a large disposal truck at this loading dock, and He had sent out messengers to gather every badge out of this place. He called a meeting of everyone from the two groups to gather together before Him. Everyone, I mean every person in this place gathered together before the Lord. They all came!

Word of the Lord:

I make distinguishing marks on the land, not just upon the people I claim. The badges you had been given were not from Me. Man made honors will not stand the test of time, and it is time for My honor to be seen in this place. For to long there has risen a cry of judgement, and I have come to demonstrate that mercy triumphs over judgement, even when it is done in the midst of declared judgement. I am here to reverse the decree declared against you, and even by you, and reverse the decision of calamity that was headed your way. There has been a great noise heard in the portables of heaven. The sound of weeping in repentance, mingled with the sound of worship in abandonment as My mercy falls upon you. I am in your midst to proclaim the verdict announced in the courts of heaven for the pardon about to be revealed in power and might by My Spirit in your midst.....

From this place unto the ends of the earth My glory shall be demonstrated. Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers shall be sent forth unto the uttermost parts of the world to declare My Kingdom come in their midst. A new wave of worship shall explode from here. A new sound of holiness and love shall erupt from this area and carry My glory where it has not been welcome before. Mighty demonstrations of the supernatural shall be done in this place as signs and wonders shall first strike My church with awe, then all the people shall be drawn unto Me and not a ministry or church or person.

Because of the prayers and fastings and sacrifices offered up in behalf of this nation, all across this nation, one more time you shall see My goodness swallow up the destruction determined to come. All across the land in each area of demarkation I have chosen and anointed I am releasing a spirit of grace and supplication that will impact not just this nation, but every nation.

I am not willing for any to perish .

Because your hearts have been broken, and you have humbled yourself, you now carry My heart of love for the people.

You will not be willing for any to perish either.

Shed False Humility and Embrace God's Reality

Teresa Seputis

God has something to say on the issue of pride. He hates pride and you already know this. Most sincere Christians do not fall into blatent hautiness and arrogance. Some do and if you do, you need to deal with it before God deals with it for you. God's way of addressing pride and arrogance are not pleasant. That is why He gives us a season of time to address it ourselves before He comes and deals with it in our lives.

Most of the people reading this word will think that the above warning does not apply to them, because they do not believe they struggle with pride and arrogance. But God says that false humility, and pushing ourselves down when He is trying to raise us up, is every bit as much "pride" as being haughty.

It is telling God that you are smarter than Him, that you know better than Him and that your plans make more sense than His. And He finds that offensive.

So the Lord would address those of you who have been beating yourself down and who have been refusing to allow Him to lift you up. And He says...

"Stop it!

Come to Me. Let Me replace your illusions and fears with with My reality. I will define you to be percisely the person that I created you to be.

It is time, child of Mine, to resist Me no longer. Do not fight Me, for My plans for you are good. I know that you are not able to accomplish this in your own strenght and power. And I never intended for you to do it that way, in your own strength and through your own resources. Instead, allow Me to transform you. Allow me to empower you.

Allow me to be the wind beneight your wings that substains you. Do not fold up your wings and refuse to fly. If you do that, how can I allow to you participate with Me in accomplishing My plans and purposes?

Your place is NOT to fight Me. Your place is not to resist me. Rather, it is to come to Me and allow Me to show you preciesly who I have created you to be. Then allow me to position you in percisely the place that I have ordained for you. Resist Me not, and I will heal you and I will empower you. Child of mine, I will make you able to accomplish all that I have appointed for you to do. I have appointed you for victory. Do not choose to fold up your wings, resist My good will for you and walk in defeat.

Again I say to you, resist Me not! Do not tell why you are not qualified. Instead let Me fill you with My indwelling presence. Let me make you able through My power. Let me transform you and conform you into My likeness. Let Me strenghten that which is weak in you. Hide it not from Me. Do you really think you can conceal your faults and weaknesses from Me? Child of mine, don't you understand that I know it all, I see it all. But I love you anyhow. Do not fear to come to me. Present yourself to me and allow Me to define who you really are.

Listen no more to who the world says you are. Cast it off of you as you would remove an old tattered jacket. Embrace My reality. Watch me empower and transform you. Watch me make you strong and mightly in Me. Watch Me give you the guidance and direction you need. Watch me place you strategicly and watch me work My glory through you.

It is time to stop fighting Me, time to stop thrusting yourself down when I begin to lift you up. Resist Me not, for my plans for you are very good. And I am able to accomplish them in your life if you choose to cooperate with me. Resist Me not. Embrace My reality. And My glory shall begin to spring forth in your life.

Bombshells Are About To Explode

Ching Co

Some days ago, I felt these words dropped in my heart "bombshells are about to explode". I've sat on this as I received nothing else.

Watching events unfolding in my own country and events taking place around the world, it looks like we are under heavy attack from all points. Added to that are the own pressures that we face day by day.

Yet in the midst of all these:

1. What is God doing.
2. What are we supposed to do

I asked the Lord the same question and have waited for His answers.


All of us who know the Lord already know what we are supposed to do. Psalm 91 gives us the answer and many of us know this by heart. However, there is always a big gap between knowing it and living it out. I am struggling to find that place and need a lot of the Father's help. WHAT IS GOD DOING?

God is at work in the nations. All these bombshells being dropped in our midst are symbolic of the activities also taking place in the heavenlies.

From our side here, it may look like that we are losing ground. . . . but from the heavenly perspective, God is moving forward putting in place all that needs to be done for His plans and purposes to be unveiled.


I felt the Lord impressing to me certain areas that we need to guard against during this season.

First, don't be dictated by your feelings. Many of God's children because of the long drawn battle that they've been in are feeling tired and yes some are surprised that they don't feel like talking much these days. Also, desire and zeal seem to have diminished too. These are not equal to loss of anointing.

Second, keep your focus on God and refrain from jumping to conclusions about anything. These might call for more time listening and less time talking. God is fighting the battle for us and it will be wise and prudent to be silent when we are not sure and certain about certain matters. God wants us to "leave matters in His hands."


In so many ways, this is another "Jericho season" for God's people. The walls are about to fall FOR GOD IS FIGHTING THE BATTLES FOR US.


"But now listen, O Jacob, my servant, Israel, whom I have chosen. This is what the Lord says - He who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you: Do not be afraid, O Jacob, my servant, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen. For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessings on your descendants. They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams." (Isaiah 44:1-4)

"Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one. "(Isaiah 44:8)

"Sing for joy, O heavens, for the Lord has done this; shout aloud, O earth beneath. Burst into song, you mountains, you forests and all your trees, for the Lord has redeemed Jacob, he displays his glory in Israel." (Isaiah 44:23)

"I will go before you and will level the mountains, I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name." (Isaiah 45:2-3)


"Father, we come to Your throne this day and we say 'Teach us Your ways and let it be done to us and the nations according to Your will.' Amen!"

Trust The Lord To Be Who He Says He Is


And the Lord would say that we are not to fear but to trust in Him and know that He is in control. What the world sees is not what is, any more than what we feel is the truth. God is teaching us a valuable lesson if we only hear and follow His direction. The enemy of our souls would have us panic and walk in fear but our God would say, "Peace, Be Still".

We serve an awesome God but act like he is no more than the false gods that other religions have. We do not walk like we BELIEVE that He really is who He says He is and that He can do what He has promised He would do. Now is a time to pray and fast for those that do not know the power of the Almighty God so that He can deliver them from the snares of the wicked one. Be not concerned about what you may eat or drink but rather about who will deliver the wretched from their hellholes.

Look not to yourself but rather look to the Lord your God for He is the only answer and He alone can save and deliver those from the pit. Lean not on your own understanding but look to the Lord in all that you do or say or think. He is "the same yesterday, today and forever" and will NOT fail you. Be not ashamed or condemned for the lack of faith and trust you have had in the past, but rather use this for a stepping stone so that you can go forward to VICTORY. We serve a Living God and we will have the strength to fight the battles that He puts us in. Do not try to fight a battle on your own or in your own strength for you will surely lose. Wait on the Lord and fight it in His timing and in His way, for His ways are always true and righteous. His way is the only way that we are assured of Victory. Who would go into a battle not knowing if can win or not, when they could go in with total assurance of Victory by just waiting on the Lord. "Victory is MINE" says the Lord of Hosts. He commands all the angels in the heavens and all that has been created or will ever be is in subjection to Him.

There is no God like our God. Praise Him! Praise Him in all that you do and say! Show the world that we not only have heard about His greatness but also believe that "He is the same yesterday, today and forever." He will not fail you nor will He forsake you when you "rest in Him and lean not on your own understanding."

Do not look around you at what is happening but look to the Lord who is in control of what is happening. Have your eyes set on things above not on this world. Praise Him! Praise Him! He is worthy of our praise for we serve a Holy God. Praise Him! Praise Him and Worship Him!

3 Visions and a Broader Look at Restoration

Sandy Warner

In the early 80's, I had a vision of a massive army of crawling caterpillars climbing over mountains and valleys. Everywhere they touched left a trail of slime, and everything the slime touched left a gaping hole. I saw gaping holes in people. In a closer view I saw the army come upon a school. There were trails of slime in the hallways, on the ceilings, on the floors. It was seemingly impossible to get away from the slime. I was told the only way to avoid being touched by the slime was to exercise. I saw a group of people in a classroom vigorously doing calisthenics! It was quite unusual to see, but these people were being protected from the slime. As I stepped outside, the caterpillars were now gone but I could see the devastation they left behind.

The Lord gave me the following scriptures which are self explanatory and interpret the vision.

Acts 24:16 KJV
And herein do I EXERCISE myself, to have always a conscience void of offense toward God, and toward men.

Joel 1:4 KJV
That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpiller eaten.

Joel 2:25 KJV
And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

In May of 98 I had a trance vision where I heard intercessory music going on behind a curtain. It was a medley of two songs. The first song was "Behold He Comes." The words were: "There shall be wars and rumors of war. Nation shall rise against nation. Because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. There shall be earthquakes, pestilence, distress of nations! Famine, signs in the sun, moon and stars!" The song turned into the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" with the words, "Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord. He is tramping out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored. He has loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword, His truth is marching on." [Words from Behold He Cometh! By Jerry Kirk (1967) and Battle Hymn of the Republic by Willliam Steffe (1852)]

While the music was playing, I saw an old vessel that was being resurrected from years and years of being buried in the earth. I realized that we were going backwards through time and I saw the layers of dust and dirt peel away and the ship appear as though it was rising above the rubble.

As the ship appeared, it looked decayed and as I continued to watch, I saw the layers of rust and decay disappear and it returned to its brand new condition. It was now sitting on top of the earth looking brand new.

Behind the intercession curtain, I saw a clock on a wall and I knew it had something to do with the countdown to Y2K, and was told that there was a computer time chip that could be inserted that would help us go back in time and do this same thing to the ship.

As I watched a repeat, the ship seemingly rose from the earth, and I realized that a blast of wind was blowing very, very hard upon the ground and blowing away layers and layers and years of dirt. As it blew away the layers, it made it appear that the ship was rising from the earth. This had happened the first time, but the first time was through intercession.

This second time, I could see that the wind was a strong blast and appeared to literally happen. However, the chip was left in a tad too long and the stripping process took it back to an elemental stage that looked like the primer coat of paint. It was a stage just prior to completion.

I was somewhat alarmed at this. I woke with the impression that if the enemy had his way, he would try to take advantage of the stripping process and tear away what the Lord had restored.

These are the scriptures the Lord gave me at that time:

And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. (KJV Isaiah 61: 4)

In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: (KJV Amos 9:11)

After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: (KJV Acts 15:16)

This year I have gone through a strong stripping: as in circumcision of the heart, the flesh, peeling away old dead layers to heal old wounds, and exposing generational sins to set me free from the past. In hindsight to this vision, I think the Y2K clock and the computer chip had to do with the timing of the stripping process.

This year I have written several posts on different aspects of being stripped. From the many responses I received, many have been going through the same thing.

A warning as related to the computer chip being left in too long, is not to wallow in the process. The Lord has a specific time limit to this work and if the enemy could continue the process, it would turn into destructive things like shame, condemnation, fear, etc.

When the Lord peels away our layers to expose our wounds, our sins, our failings, He does so to cleanse and make whole. The enemy does so to destroy.

Something I had not realized until just this week, as He brought back the memory of that wind basting away the layers on the ship, is that His intention in this stripping has been to RENEW us, to RESTORE us and bring us back from being underneath the years of enemy dirt and grime.

In the midst of dust and dirt flying everywhere, all I had been thinking about this year was repentance and inner healing, but He had even more in mind. He wanted to resurrect painful truths, so that they could be healed in the right way, HIS WAY.

He wanted to take us past the pain, and even past the healing, and INTO TOTAL RESTORATION OF ALL THAT WAS LOST. That will be mind boggling when we begin to realize how the revelation will begin to come to pass in our lives!

There are many applications to this revelation and to this work He is doing among us. One of them is the ship. Ship in prophetic language speaks of leadership. He is raising up His government and restoring something that has been buried a very long time.

I perceive this goes all the way back to the leadership of the early church and extends into the present time. We have yet to know what His kingdom is to become ON THIS EARTH.

Today I received an email that reaffirmed what I had been thinking about the restoration process and this was very quickened to me so I want to pass it on:

A vision given to Debra-Louise Cossu

Revelation 21:5
"He who was seated on the throne said, 'I am making everything new!"

I was in front of a large warehouse. Across the door was written:
"Pieces Restored"

As I went inside there was a myriad of all different kinds of boxes. Most like shoe boxes, some the type roses would be carried in, some cartons, and crates, and even coffins! They were all sizes and shapes and colors... Each box had a string that held it tied securely, and a tag with a picture of the contents. This was the largest warehouse I had ever seen, and it was full, with more boxes being brought in all the time....

I walked down the row I had begun, and FINALLY reached the end where there was a work table set up just inside the exit door. There stood the Lord, with tools laying all around Him, and a big vat of something very thick and sweet smelling. It contained a liquid that was a ruby red, very glossy and shiny.

He had just completed what He had been working on, and turned it around for me to see. It was a beautiful Tiffany style lamp, unlike any on earth. He placed the tag that had come with it underneath the base of this beautiful lamp as His signature card. It was a picture of what had come into His hands from the box....Ugly and broken pieces of junk all jumbled and disorganized had been tossed into the box and cast aside.

All of these boxes in the warehouse held similar contents of broken and discarded pieces, parts that were useless and unwanted or tossed aside.

Now that these contents had been made new, it was placed on a serving tray to be carried out the exit door. Above the exit door was written:
"Peace is Restored."

Word of the Lord:

My peace I give to you. You have given Me the pieces of your life, and I make all things new.

Out of broken dreams will come the dream I have waiting just for you.

From destroyed hopes will come My hope fulfilled for many.

It is the blood I shed for you that is the very essence which has carried you through, and will keep you together for what lies ahead.

Life is in the blood, and I restore life to you this day. My life poured out, will flood into you, and I will seal and secure the pieces brought to Me. Even those you withheld out of shame or pride, or a combination of both, I will mold into something beautiful to show forth My glory!

It is My love poured out that has filled in the empty places, and now holds all things made new. Even if you feel like some of the pieces are still missing, I declare to you this day that is just more space for My love to flood in and fill you. The varying sizes and shapes of the pieces do not matter in My hands, for as My blood, the blood of the covenant you have entered into with Me, seeps into the cracks and crevices of your life, every part will be held and molded in place.

Then, as each of you has been rebuilt and reconstructed, I shall form and fashion you together in ways that were not possible before you were broken and needed to be made anew.

Pieces Restored,
Peace is restored,

To you,
made new,
in My love.

continued from Sandy...

To tie all these concepts together:

As a result of not following their conscience, the body of Christ has suffered gaping holes and loss. We are in pain, yet with the merciful promise of restoration of those years.

In the mean time, the Lord is bringing the earth through a great upheaval. Between spaces of rest, the labor pains grow stronger, and with each upheaval (like wars are rumors of wars) the Lord knocks on the door of the unrighteous. He wants to shake the world so that it is no longer settled in its own complacency and realizes its need for a supernatural God - Who alone has all the answers.

And within the shaking of that environment, He uses all events surrounding His church to peel away the layers of our own decay to brings us lovingly back to Him.

It is for our TOTAL RESTORATION that He is doing this!

Acts 3:19-21 NKJV
Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.

Joel 2:28-29 KJV
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
