My Kingdom

Bill Burns

My people, because you are living in the age when the stone kingdom is being built, arise and now be a nation of living stones, for it is written that it shall come at the end. My kingdom shall come forth and break the powers of darkness. My kingdom shall shake all that can be shaken. My kingdom shall crush the beast nations and shall be an everlasting kingdom and shall be established in all of the earth forever and forever. So, I say to you today, become a stone. Even as David took a stone out of his shepherd's pouch, I shall surely take you and fit you into My sling, and you shall fly to the mark under supernatural power by the guidance of My Spirit. It is mine to give, and I am doing this work in this day. In these hours I am raising up a people, a strong people, a people who will do exploits, a people who will walk on the mountain of revelation, a people who will walk in My power. They will be My living will in demonstration upon the earth, says the Lord.

The season that is before you will be either a season of breakthrough or a season of breakdown, for I have called you and have been speaking to you and have had you in the process of preparation. Now you are coming to the end of the preparation, which has been a time of testing. It is now time to go on, but if you do not hold in your heart and nurture and covet that which I am about to do and to give, then you will experience a breaking down instead of a building up. Expect a breakthrough. Rise up and let Me be the Lord of the breakthrough.

Based On Truth

Marsha Burns

There is a great shaking coming to My people and to all nations. That which has been established on the foundation of truth will stand, but that which has been built on presumption will be revealed for what it is and be torn down. Be prepared to allow all that has been hidden to be revealed, for light will expose the darkness of deception and illusion. New beginnings must be based on truth and reality. All that has not been based on truth has resulted in deception accompanied by lust and selfish ambition. Now is the time when you have another opportunity to build on a solid foundation; do not be seduced by fantasy spurred on by the needs of your soul.

What We Have

Jane Larsen

Last night I had a vision. There were men and women fighting. Some used plastic swords that were very large and they fought people who had shining, metal swords that were very sharp. The ones with the plastic swords appeared to be winning, they seemed more confident than the others, which was ridiculous as their swords were fake and had no real power anyway. Then the Lord moved this in me:

The enemy throws lies at you and that is all they are, lies. He fights you with what is not true and attacks you but all the time you have all the weapons that you need to conquer him. You have My word in your mouth and in your heart, and My word will smash his lies asunder. My word will cut through his attacks and leave him defeated. My word heals the sick and gives hope to the hopeless. My word never returns void. If you are not using My word, I ask why? It is there to strengthen you and to feed you. With all that you have to do, make time for Me. Read My word and strengthen your weary bones.

The enemy deceives. He tempts and destroys, yet you have all that you need. Seek Me in prayer. Be still. Be quiet, and focus on Me. All that is good, all that is wonderful and beautiful, think on these things that have been made by My own hand. Be still and look at the birds of the air. Do they worry? Do they pace restlessly in the night hours? No. They sleep in peace in the night hours for even they know they have protection. I am your protection and your resting place. Do not worry about the things of this world. I know the state of the world, for I gaze upon each thing each second of the day. Come to Me and let Me know what is in your heart. Approach Me in prayer. Approach Me in thanksgiving. I give you all things and will not withhold what is good.

It is time to use the weapons I have given you. Feed of My word and speak with Me. I am all around you. I long to speak with you yet the sounds of the world and the sounds of your worrying can drown My words. Be still just be still. All you need you already have. Use it.

Absolute Solitude

Yolanda Ballard

In order to come apart from the cares of the world you need to be able to seek that secret place that I have for you alone. You need to be willing to cast off all the distractions and be still, and know that I AM Faithful to draw you in. Absolute solitude is what you need. That peace and stillness of spirit is important to be able to hear My voice. I want you to draw near, and listen closely for I have so much of My heart I want to share with you.

For these are the end times, and you need to be able to tune out everything so I can direct you through the storm. You need to be able to worship Me and to allow My peace and love to permeate your whole being. Listen closely, My overcoming warriors, for I will fill you with My grace and truth. My Son is the Light that will direct you. Follow Him closely, being willing to forsake all to be in His perfect will, for He needs willing and yielded vessels to perform the works He is about to do.

For I promised that you will do greater works, because He went to His Father and left you His Spirit to move through you in power and might. Seek His face in the stillness of the night, and draw close for He's about to pour out an abundance of rain upon you, for He is the Rain and Glory that you need to take you through all that is ahead. Keep your eyes upon Him and His promises, and waver not in unbelief for you need to stay shielded in truth.

For many deceptions have been loosed in the camp, and you must beware of the snares planted for you by the enemy. Do not waver away from My straight path for deep in your heart you know My truth, and the remnant will stand by it no matter what any man will say. A true overcomer will know My truth and will not waver away from it.

Be willing to pay the price to walk the crucified life for the benefits from it are priceless. My resurrection power will flow through you like a tidal wave sweeping away doubt and unbelief and all types of hypocrisy. For I need a pure bride that I may flow through, one that I can trust with My power. My bride knows to give all the glory to the Lamb no matter what. One who will step back and allow My Son to be recognized.

For I call you close this hour that I may prepare you. I have My hand upon you for the enemy can never snatch you away. You are My beloved and I AM yours. Find the place of absolute solitude this day. Allow nothing to get in the way to hear My still small voice, and be still and quiet, and I will fill you up.

Upsetting the Applecart

Katherine Wells Anderson

Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed is every one who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, to perform them” 11 Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, “The righteous man shall live by faith.” 12 However, the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, “He who practices them shall live by them” 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having becomes a curse for us-for it is written, “Cursed is every one who hangs on a tree”

I had a vision of a cart full of apples being overturned. As I have been seeking the Lord concerning this and many other questions plaguing my heart; I believe I have received revelation.

I believe the apples in the cart represent the teachings in the church which are erroneous that have caused us, like Eve, to see them as a “good for food, that it was pleasant to the eye, and a tree desirable to MAKE ONE WISE” (Gen 3:6) and to partake of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil that is in actuality bringing us death.

I sense that the Lord has in preparation those who He will use to “upset the applecart” with words of Spirit and Truth which will fly in the face of many beliefs that permeate the body of Christ like so much leaven; leaving little room for the bread from heaven which satisfies. I see the very breath of God being released and carrying the scent of freedom to those in captivity. But to others it will be a scent of death, for they will not part with dearly held teachings in which they have found significance through the appearance of being wise.

Many will be as the Apostle Paul, and having scales fall from their eyes will in one instant be released from the shackles of false teachings. Many will feel the heavy yokes of bondage lifted off to be replaced by the yoke of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is gentle and meek and the wisdom which comes from Him is “peaceful and easy to entreat”. There will be an emergence of His kingdom as those formerly bound by the law begin walking as one, after His Spirit, with a liberty and power not seen since the early days of the church when they had “all things in common and no one was lacking”. His spirit will cause them to begin meeting in groups, breaking and sharing the bread of life Who satisfies, and the Living Water Who quenches thirst, speaking to one another in hymns and psalms and spiritual songs. Preferring one another with a meekness of spirit which will astound the world. Even those who look at the church now with disdain will be filled with wonderment thinking “from where did this beautiful creature emerge?” for all they have seen is the church in her shackled state, devouring one another and condemning the world. Millions upon millions will turn to the Savior at last when they see the tremendous heart of the Father released through these true believers.

The books, tapes and conferences will fade into a distant memory as His life, the leaven of the Kingdom fills our emptiness and is broken to be shared by the multitudes. We will walk in immunity to the snares and tribulations of this world. Though we be persecuted we will not seek vengeance. Though we be in deprivation, we will not seek to keep what little we have to ourselves. And though we are heaped upon with the praises or accusations of men, we will be buried with Christ and therefore lifted up with Him boasting only in the work of the cross and giving Him all glory and honor and praise.

I urge you to begin seeking Him now and yielding doctrines of man to be tried by fire. When the day comes you will know it, for those who speak will labeled as enemies of God and false teachers. A gasp will go though the body of Christ like a wave. But it will be the dawning of a new day, the one we have been waiting for. God bless you.

IICor 11:3 But I am afraid, lest as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds should be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.

My Plans for You

Elvi Glass

My precious children do not lose hope regarding your future. My plans for you are good plans. I have for each one of you specific things to do in My kingdom. In fact many such works are prepared in advance for you to do. I have prepared those works with much thought and with you in mind.

My children, I have a plan. Even though things may not seem to line up from your perspective or seem out of order and in disarray, doesn't mean that My plan doesn't exist.

As you look at things from a human perspective you are only able to see bits and pieces of a much greater work. I am working in your life with the entire picture in mind. I am the Alpha and the Omega. What I have started I will also finish. What I have promised, I will also fulfill. I am not just going to be there at the beginning and then again at the end. No, I am seeing you through for the duration of the process and I am seeing to it that My plans are fulfilled entirely.

I move things into place to line up in a manner to where I can flow through you unhindered. My eyes are on you for good and for the fulfillment of My plans in your lives.I wish to bring you forth to a greater extend than you think. I will not leave you unprepared. The times ahead are serious times and it is important that you are ready. I do not wish to send you forth unprepared.

Rest in Me trusting that I know the right time of your being brought forth. Submit to My refining process. Submit to My timing and know that I am not a God who delays. I am not one who promises and then doesn't follow through. As you are being prepared, My eyes are always on you. I know your name. I know your coming and your going and My hand is upon you. Therefore, do not fret but know that I am who I say I am. I will always complete what I have started.

Caution: "Fiery Furnace and Lion's Den Just Ahead!"

Bill Yount

In the Spirit I sensed the Lord saying. "I am going to catapult many of My People this hour into strategic positions to accomplish exploits that will cause the world to take note that they have been with My Son, Jesus, who is the way, the truth and the life! Whose name is the only name under heaven whereby men must be saved. I am about to honor many and release them, giving them favor with God and man.

Men in high places of earthly authority will soon know that "there is a God in Heaven who steps down to inter mingle with the affairs of men upon the earth by revealing secrets to His servants. These servants will be modern day "Shadrachs, Meshachs, Abednegos and Deborahs; having an excellent spirit, divine wisdom and boldness to speak the word of the Lord with no fear of man.

I then immediately saw a yellow light blinking in the Spirit - "Caution: Fiery Furnace Just Ahead!"

I thought at first this sign was of the enemy to put fear into the Body of Christ as we were pressing forward to know our God and His power in our lives.

Surprisingly to me, this was the voice of our Father commanding His angels. "Turn up the furnace and make it seven times hotter! I will bring them through the fire!

My Holy Fire changes things that nothing else can. I will burn up those things that hold My people earthbound to the things of this world! The world will see the "fourth man in the furnace" one more time and I will deliver My people forever from the fear of fiery furnaces!"

Another sign that I saw in the Spirit for the Body of Christ was -"Lion's Den Ahead!" Some coming up for promotion in God's Kingdom seemed to be headed straight towards the mouths of Lions. I saw some people turn back at this point as they were shaken by the size of the Lions' teeth.

Others continued walking right towards what appeared to be certain death. As they proclaimed, "for me to live is Christ and to die is gain and though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him!" their faith in God paralyzed the enemy and it shut the mouths of these lions.

I sensed the Lord saying. "Tell My people that in their testing and trials that they are being watched and surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses from on high cheering them on. Also the world will be watching their responses during their testings to see if they are going to walk their talk!

And forever My eyes will be upon them and I will be monitoring their situations and tests. Tell My people whatever difficulties they are going through, the good news is - they are going through! This is only a "test" to bring forth a testimony. And I will take their "mess" to bring forth a message this hour that will touch many who will see and hear what I can do!"

These ones coming up for promotion in the Kingdom of God were people who were willing to say. "Our God is able to deliver us, but if He chooses not to; we will still trust in Him!"

I Command You To Live

Theresa Dokes

Fire be upon you! Revived as the embers in a fire that seems to be gone out. I blow upon you and I renew your strength to go forth even now. A fire that is covered will go out. But a fire in My Hands is like the burning bush for Moses, it will speak of My presence and you will not be consumed. For I am the vine and you are the branches.

Retreat into the secret place and I will speak My heart to you. I will share those things that I desire for My people. There's nothing that you can do or say that will change My love for you. I have begun the good work in you and I will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. Who or what can pluck you out of My hand?

Fret not over the failed decisions you have made. Rejoice in the follow through of My Swift Hand over your life and your ministry. Your "Yes, Lord" to Me, is eternal in the heavens. It is perpetually repeating in the corridors of heaven. It shouts above the accuser of the brethren.

He brings dark clouds of confusion and doubt and fear that you can't do what I have chosen you to do, but My sonshine rises within you, the hope of glory and radiates, diminishing what the enemy says and the lies he has spoken to you. There is only light now, no lies.

Receive only those words that I have spoken to you and about your destiny in Me. Lift your shield of faith, that will repel the fiery darts that aim for your soul. You shall not die but live to declare the works of the Lord. I command you to live!

I dwell within you and therefore stand fast in the liberty wherewith, I have made you free and don't be tangled again in that yoke of bondage. I am with you always -- and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty and life!

No True Shepherd

A. W. Tozer

Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. --2 Timothy 1:6-7

It is doubtful whether we can be Christian in anything unless we are Christian in everything. To obey Christ in one or two or ten instances and then in fear of consequences to back away and refuse to obey in another is to cloud our life with the suspicion that we are only fair-weather followers and not true believers at all. To obey when it costs us nothing and refuse when the results are costly is to convict ourselves of moral trifling and gross insincerity....

Again, the pastor when facing his congregation on Sunday morning, dare not think of the effect his sermon may have on his job, his salary or his future relation to the church. Let him but worry about tomorrow and he becomes a hireling and no true shepherd of the sheep. No man is a good preacher who is not willing to lay his future on the line every time he expounds the Word. He must let his job and his reputation ride on each and every sermon or he has no right to think that he stands in the prophetic tradition. The Size of the Soul, 146-147.

"That's a scary thought, Father, but I recognize that it's the only way to be true to my calling. Give me grace to follow, Lord--especially when it really does cost me something. Amen."
