This Is My Road Map

Yolanda Ballard

Believers in Christ, examine your hearts this day to see if what you are doing is purely My will or if it is a work of the enemy to distract you. For this is the time and the hour to come before Me with fasting and with prayer believing that what I had promised concerning My people Israel will come to pass.

Examine your heart to see if what you are doing is a work of the flesh or if it is by My Spirit. For this is the day for the latter rain outpouring, and you must be ready to be used in a mighty way. You must be able to know My voice so I can direct you through the storm for the enemy will try to come on strong to deter you from going the way I AM calling you.

You must be able to go only with My flow and not the way of man. For many will be going a direction unknown by My people, but it will appear to be a safe path, but beware along this path is set up many snares to try to catch you off guard. Keep your eyes on Me and your heart sensitive to My leading, and I will keep you safe even though the path may look dangerous. Yes, I will lead you through the desert once again, but on the other side is a land flowing with milk and honey.

For yes, I AM a God who keeps His promise. I do not lie. Just because there seems to be a hindrance to its manifestation doesn't mean that I do not have My hand in everything that you face. All things work together for your good if you are Mine. So gather together for strength. Yes, gird yourself with Truth. Cover your mind with the helmet of salvation. Walk boldly in righteousness for I AM your rear guard.

Lift your head up high for your Redeemer reigns mighty. You are sons of the King, and you have mighty power dwelling within you. Speak out My words boldly. Prophesy to the nations "Let My people go!". Yes, speak to the nations great grace for I died for their salvation. Yes, I will gather My flock from around the world, and the gates of hell will not prevail.

For yes, this is My road map, and it will not be hindered. Yes, speak to the nations My truth. Do not listen to the lies of the enemy that he will prevail for he is under your feet and is defeated. So keep your eyes upon Me, and My truth through My word, and press on to victory, says your Redeemer and King.

Listen and Hear Wisdom

Marsha Burns

Rejection exerts pressure to be different and destroys trust. Love is respecting and accepting others for who and what they are. I see those who have been rejected and despised, and I hear your cries for vindication. Come before Me with unveiled face, without guile or pretense, and know that I accept and love you, says the Lord. When I am for you, who can be against you? Be done with insecurity, and refuse the temptation to reject those who have rejected you. Do not operate in the realm of deception with white-washed motives and actions that justify yourself in an attempt to be purged of your own rejection and failure. Be honest with yourself and others. Who is your enemy? Is it not one who is against you and has rejected you? But, I have instructed you to love your enemies and to do good and to pray for those who have despitefully used you. Let the fight end here, and come into My rest and peace.

Dying Daily

Sammy Tippit

"I die every day!" The great scholars of history may not understand those words, but they are clearly understood by every victorious Christian. The secret to the victorious Christian life is found in those words penned by the Apostle Paul nearly 2000 years ago. He not only wrote of this death to the believers in Corinth but also to the followers of Christ in Galatia and Rome. Paul understood that the victorious life was the fruit of the crucified life.

But exactly what did he mean when he wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:31, "I die every day." Paul was speaking about a spiritual reality that many Christians have failed to grasp. This truth is the key that unlocks the door of Victorious Christian Living. It's the foundation upon which victory is built in our lives. It's the element, which gives every believer victory over the areas of our lives where we seem to struggle endlessly. Out of the death of Christ came the greatest victory known to mankind - the resurrected life of Christ.

When we come to know Christ, there is something deeply spiritual that transpires in our lives. Our old life dies, and we receive a new life. That's why Paul wrote, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come" (2Cor. 5:17). Our lives are eternally and practically transformed at the moment we trust Christ as our Lord and Savior.

I once met a group of young people from the Philippines that had come to know Christ. They were travelling throughout Europe singing and ministering. One of their songs touched my heart because in its simplicity gave my testimony and the testimony of every true follower of Christ. "I'll never be the same again, oh no. I'll never be the same again, oh no. Since I met the Lord, I am not the same and I'll never be the same again." When Christ comes into our lives, we will never be the same again because our old life has died and we now have a new life dwelling deep within - the life of Christ through the Holy Spirit.

Then why do we experience defeat? It's simply because we try to live in our own power. We must learn to die daily. As we take our position as dead to self, then the Holy Spirit manifests the life of Christ within us. We bear the fruit of the life of Christ. Just as Christ had to die in order to be resurrected, we must die daily to self in order to experience the resurrected life of Christ.

Quite frankly, I must admit to you that the days in which I wake up and attempt to live the Christian life on my own, I fail miserably. But on the days that I wake up and say to God, "I can't live the Christian life today. So, I die today. I die to my ambitions and desires. I die to my abilities and efforts. I die to my self centeredness," then on those days I experience victory. I discover the truth of which Paul wrote, "it's no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me" (Gal. 2:20b).

A friend of mine many years ago told me that he was contemplating suicide. He sat in his church pew weeping. His pastor saw him and asked, "Why are you crying?" My friend replied, "I don't want to live any more. I want to die." The pastor shocked my friend when he said, "Okay, go ahead. Die."

My friend looked up at the pastor and said, "Wha, what do you mean?" The godly pastor then opened the Scriptures to this young man to the great truth of dying to self so that Christ can live within us. My friend died that day. Today he's a minister of the gospel of Christ. God is using his life wonderfully. He learned the secret to the victorious Christian life. He learned to die - die every day

Sanctions Are Being Lifted Off My People!

Debra & Marvin Westbrook

Sanctions: the detriment, loss of reward, or coercive intervention annexed to a violation of a law as a means of enforcing the law; explicit or official permission or ratification; to make valid or binding usually by a formal procedure; to give effective or authoritative approval or consent.

Acquittal: to discharge completely

"Sanctions are being lifted off of My people in this day and hour," says the Lord. Sanctions have been placed upon their lives in times past by the accuser of the brethren. These sanctions have held them bound and incapacitated My people for many years. These sanctions have restricted their freedom, movement, and liberty in the realm of the Spirit, binding and crippling many with fear, doubt, and unbelief. Sanctions imposed by the accuser of the brethren have hindered them on their journey of liberty and freedom in Christ Jesus. Today I am lifting the sanctions imposed upon many of My people. It is a new day and a new hour."

Sanctions impede spiritual progress, halt forward progression, and leave people paralyzed and halted in their lives. Sanctions restrict freedom of movement and access into greater spiritual realities that have been denied them because the accuser of the brethren has tethered, bound, and restricted many to lives of slavery instead of sonship.

There is an acquittal coming from the high court of heaven. The Eternal Judge pounds His gavel in the very face of the accuser of the brethren and sets the captives free.

"Sanctions have been lifted off of My people," says the Lord.

Laws are enacted, set in place, and carried out by those whom have been invested with authority. Laws govern people. Sanctions may be placed upon people, limiting their freedom in a variety of ways when laws are violated in some way. Sanctions are lifted off of people when a due measure of restitution has been paid by the offender in the form of prison sentences, community service, or payment of finances. In any case, the offender is bound by these laws, which, when broken, restrict freedom. We see what transpires in the natural has spiritual implications first and foremost.

The law of life in Christ Jesus supercedes and rises above, canceling out the law of sin and death. Yet, when we believe the lies of the enemy, we give him legal access into our lives. These lies govern our spiritual condition rather than being governed by the life of the Spirit in Christ Jesus. We are placed under sanctions that come from the enemy's hand to steal, kill and destroy. These sanctions are placed upon us when we give the enemy legal access through unforgiveness, bitterness, doubt, confusion, unbelief, and a variety of other ways. They govern and restrict the liberty that is found in Christ Jesus. We live bound to the accuser of the brethren in many areas of our lives!

The accuser of the brethren, through imposed sanctions, makes us serve our time in his prison, bound and shackled, living far below our destiny and kingdom purpose.

But no more! The court of heaven has acquitted many this day by the blood of Christ Jesus which removes, restores and makes whole! The judge of heaven is issuing an edict throughout the land and throughout His kingdom.

"Let My people go!"

John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Godly sorrow brings repentance! Be quick to repent before your Lord! Repent of listening to the enemy, believing his lies and giving him legal access through a choice of one's will instead of believing the truth found in a person, Christ Jesus.

Repent, be acquitted and set free by the high court of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

Knowing Your Land of Anointing

Joanne Gavlick

2 Cor. 10:13-14 declares, "But we will not boast beyond our measure, but within the measure of the sphere which God apportioned to us as a measure, to reach even as far as you. For we are not overextending ourselves, as if we did not reach to you, for we were the first to come even as far as you in the gospel of Christ."

This morning I heard Holy Spirit say, "Your sphere of authority is your land of anointing, and most of God’s people do not know this, or they are "out of bounds." For these reasons, the adversary has brought chaos and captivity to God’s people. But know this, beloved, that a war over the prophetic word spoken unto you by the Spirit of God is still in effect, and your destiny is irrevocable. The enemy knows that if you fulfill your destiny, you will not only proclaim freedom to the captives but live, move and have your being in The Anointed One.

So keep moving, for your God is a moving God. This is a season for release, refreshing and restoration, says the Lord. For the Lord your God has come to change the course of your life in this world. He desires to establish you in the land of your anointing to establish His Kingdom here on earth.

Chains of ignorance and lies from the adversary are being unraveled right now, for they have kept you from moving forward. The shattering of dreams and visions have kept you, and for some, even killed your hope for your future. Disappointments have come to steal, kill and destroy. But hear this, oh people of God. There is change in the atmosphere taking place on your behalf, says the Lord, and the death of the vision is being resurrected.

Unexpected "suddenlies" from the Spirit of Life is about to invade your lives through the coming months and year. Some may experience unexplained dimensions of the realm of the Spirit soon….even now. I don’t know who the Lord is speaking to, but someone out there needs to catch this. For these "suddenlies" will catapult you into your land of anointing. You will then walk in the authority and power that God has ordained for you.

Yes, God is ordaining your land of anointing this season.

The Surrendered Life

Doug Morrell

When He has come, He will convict the world of sin . . . (John 16:8)

We are not called to convince, to convict, or to condemn; this is the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers and unbelievers alike. Ours is to live a life reformed in heart and as a result, to become sweetly attractive, enticing, and intoxicating because we ourselves have been enveloped in the very presence and essence of God. It is then, like a beautiful fragrance, we either arrest or repulse those around us. We convince the world by our ministry - our very lives - lived deliberately and blamelessly before God our Father. It is His grace that calls us to live godly, soberly, and righteously. My life sincerely devoted to God is a living sacrifice - to be godly is when I surrender myself to God. It is then, and only then, that I become a night light (Matthew 5:14).

I must purposely choose to not be self-conceited, nor esteem too much my own wisdom and other possessions. Otherwise, I will think myself something, when in fact, I am nothing apart from God (Galatians 6:3).

I must fully understand that whatever I have that is good; God has dealt it to me. I must know that every good and perfect gift comes from above (James 1:17). What do I have that I have not received? And, if I've received it, why then do I boast? (1 Corinthians 4:7). Who do you esteem as great and gracious and glorious? The best and most useful person in the world is no more than what the free grace of God makes him or her to be each day. When we are thinking of ourselves or those around us whom we elevate as being spiritual giants or demote as being spiritually impoverished, we must daily remember to think not how we arrived at some point, as though our strength, wisdom, or righteousness had gotten us these gifts; but instead always being mindful how God has been to us, for it is He that gives us power through His Holy Spirit to do any thing that is good - in Him is my sufficiency.

The Holy Spirit's work is to convince; in truth, if I attempt to convince others in my feeble strength, it is wasted life. It is only the Holy Spirit who can open another's heart. He and He alone can first convince, and when He has done so, He then comforts; He opens the wound and applies a heavenly, healing balm. I, on the other hand, can only deepen the wound, and though in my deception and pride may think I can bring healing, I exasperate the cause, widening the chasm between God and man; I've not worked with God, I've worked against Him.

The Spirit has work to do, not only on the enemies of Christ, to convince and humble them, but upon His servants and agents, to instruct and comfort them. Jesus Christ said that when the Holy Spirit came He would convict people of sin. And when the Holy Spirit compels a person¹s conscience and brings him or her into the presence of God, it is not that person¹s relationship with others that bothers him, but his relationship with God. We must be always mindful that a person cannot repent when he or she chooses - repentance is a gift of God.

The Puritans of old used to pray for "the gift of tears." If you ever cease to understand the value of repentance, you are deceived - you've allowed yourself to remain in sin. Let us examine ourselves now, in this present moment, to see if we have forgotten how to be truly repentant. Then we become useful in our Father's Hands for the good of others.

Grow in grace and truth,

Fresh Start

Jane Larsen

I take away all that is not to be. I wash away your sins, your past mistakes, your hurts, and I leave a clean slate for you. A new one unblemished with the things of the past. I roll it all away, never to be seen, never to be remembered again.

Do not look at what was for this will stop you seeing what is. Look at what is, now, before you. A fresh start. A fresh, unmarked time. Another period. A fresh day. I wipe it all away. I take away everything that hinders you until it is no more. Walk straight upon the path that is before you. You cannot walk the old way when you have tasted of the new. You cannot do the old things when you have been called to the new. The old is behind you, it is left behind, it is gone. Now there is a new way. It is called My way and I walk that way with you. I lead you and beckon. You will hear Me, telling you, "This is the way, walk in it." Walk that way. That is the way you are to go.

Let Me Love You

Laurie Stone

Let Me love you with the Word that will nourish you through the times that are coming. Let Me love you through that which has already come. Do not fall on your face with the pity of what you are going through, but love Me for I am the One that has the hand that will raise you up and mature you with this instance. Do not look around at others and how they see you, look to Me. I am in control of even the most minute situations.

Do not fear, I have not put you in the stomach of a fish. I have given you to a man that will put you in charge of one that will eventually place you in a harvest that will supply harvests of food to nations when you have reached the maturity point that peaks as Joseph did. Do not fear My child for none of My work is done in vain. Have faith in what I am doing. No, you are not going to burn as Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego though they, thought they might, yet you will see the Glory of God come through in your trial..

Do not allow others to intimidate you because the eye of Your Lord is upon you. Never allow others to make you feel inadequate, for I have ordained you and nothing is a hindrance to Me that is not seen as a movement waiting for victory.

My love, I want more of your love. I love to be engulfed by you as you love to be engulfed by Me. Stretch Me around you and let Me love the hurt that you display to others around you. Let not your way run you any longer, yet allow Me to remove the scare of fellowship to heal in the hands of the One that has never touched you wrongly. Allow Me the honor to love you deeper and in a healing touching way.

Your creative touch is in your heart waiting for a voice of asking from you to release Me.

I told you I would never leave you nor forsake you. Tell Me you believe Me with all your heart and allow it to become fruitful in the way of My Ghost. You have allowed Me to help you overcome many times before, do not allow this one thing to stop you from trusting in Me. I allow all things and do not play toys with the one that seeks to inhibit My will. Love what I am doing for you because soon you will see the fruit of My vine in you.

Everlasting joy be within you to choose.
