Some Words Of Wisdom

Stephen Hanson

HEB 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. [2] This is what the ancients were commended for.

ECC 12:9 Not only was the Teacher wise, but also he imparted knowledge to the people. He pondered and searched out and set in order many proverbs. [10] The Teacher searched to find just the right words, and what he wrote was upright and true.

1PE 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, [4] and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade--kept in heaven for you, [5] who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. [6] In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. [7] These have come so that your faith--of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire--may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. [8] Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, [9] for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

"I will blow with all my might upon the hearts of my people. Even though the wind will blow with a great force, the wind from my Holy Spirit will blow with even a greater force. For even in the midst of hurricanes and great winds, greater will be the force of the wind that is present within my servants. I will sing a song, I will sing a song that has been played since the ancient of days. It is the song of my beloved who come into my chambers. For time is not measured with Me as it is with you upon the earth. You behold the sunrise and the sunset, and I behold all of the timeline. From the beginning of time unto the end of time I am there. I behold the age of the earth as but a day, and I see the end when yet the beginning has just begun. The struggles of mankind are many and I hold them within a bucket. Behold, eternity is within your grasp. Consider that the present plight that many of you have faced is nothing compared to the beauty that awaits you---nothing compared to the glories of my kingdom. My kingdom awaits all who would come unto Me. You who have come unto Me have a taste of what my future kingdom will be within you. For hope that is seen is no hope at all. True hope is not based upon appearances or what is in front of you. The ancients were commended for their faith as well as for their hope. Live out your days as a people of faith and hope. Strive to let that hope be instilled within you. Wear it as a crown upon your forehead. Be as a jewel to this generation. Even though there are many struggles and disagreements, strive to live at peace with all mankind. Avoid evil at any cost. Do not compare yourselves with one another for this is not wise. The only one to compare yourselves to is Me. Avoid those who quarrel and dispute, for it is not good for your soul. The sun rises and sets upon all mankind. There is always going to be some joy and sorrow in this life. Learn to make the best of your time for the days are evil. Then you will have gained a heart of wisdom. These are simple proverbs to live by. They will bring a light unto your path ahead. They will give strength to your bones, and they will sustain you in the days that lie ahead."

I Will Feed You In the Gardens Of My Spirit

1KI 17:2 Then the word of the LORD came to Elijah: [3] "Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. [4] You will drink from the brook, and I have ordered the ravens to feed you there."

1KI 17:5 So he did what the LORD had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. [6] The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook.

HEB 6:1 Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God, [2] instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. [3] And God permitting, we will do so.

"There is a way in the wilderness that I am providing. My eagles will fly through this wilderness unto lush green valleys. For too long many of my servants have been hidden. For too long many of my servants have partaken of the things I have given unto them in the wilderness. Now, I will give them a new diet and new surroundings. Gone will be the days of dust and turmoil. Gone will be the days of mountain caves and wanderings. Behold, there is a new place that I am providing for you. You will be lifted up unto new heights. You will rise to new heights in my spirit. Where you have been seeing the vision from a distance, you will now see it face-to-face. You will not only see the vision but you will walk in it. It is a new diet, but with this diet comes the ability and the need for a new maturity. Eat the strong meat that I am giving unto you. For then you can more readily discern between good and evil. Feel the lush breezes and the air that I am giving unto you. There is a crispness in the air. Drink it in for you will have need of it. Rest here for a while before you continue your journey. In the distance are all the calamities and problems of this world. When you leave this garden you will be flying above the earth in my spirit. You will survey the land, and you will look into the enemy's camp there. Because of your time spent here you will be able to go into that camp; and you will dispel the work that is being done there. The enemy knows that you will be stronger in the days ahead. But he doesn't know of the places of rest that I have provided for you. So eat and rest, and then you can begin your journey again. Remember that I fed my servant Elijah by the brook, and I will feed you as well."

My Words

Teresa Seputis

My words are words of power and of life. My words are words of encouragement. The enemy desires for your heart to be heavy and full of fear. I desire for your joy to be full and for you to be full of faith. And the personal and corporate words that I release through My servants, the prophets, are to be words of life and encouragement. My words are words of liberty and the setting free of those who Satan holds in captivity. My words are words of hope and of a future.

There are types of false prophesy running amuck in the church today, and this is a cause of sorrow and anger for Me. There are those who speak and release words of condemnation because they speak from a critical and judgmental spirit. They release words that have no hope, that offer no road of repentance and restitution. That is not My way, for I came that all men might have life, that they might believe and repent and be saved. I have died that man may have life. Therefore, I do not speak words of destruction and condemnation and judgment over whole nations -- I speak words of invitation and words of life, desiring that they might turn to Me and be saved.

There is not a nation on the face of this earth that is so holy before Me to the point where there is no room for correction or rebuke. But this is not yet the season where man has been sealed in his sin, the mark of the anti-christ has not been taken and very few are reprobate in their evil ways and unable to repent. So the words that I release to nations are words of invitation and words of hope. For I desire that all men would turn from their sin and run to Me that they may be saved. I offer them a hope and a future.

There is another type of false prophesy going forth that says that man may live for themselves and their own plans, that they can seek material gain and wealth and comfort, so long as they do right and attend My house of worship. Child of Mine, this is fallacy. I require all of you and I require a place of absolute lordship in your life. I expect you to obey Me because you love Me. I expect you to follow the example I laid forth when I walked on this earth as a man -- even as I saw what the Father was doing and did only that, so you are to see what I am doing and do only that. You are to lay down your agendas and your priorities to embrace and obey Mine. I must be Lord and you must have a heart to obey Me and you must do whatever I tell you to do. If you are called by My name, you are to be My servant.

I do not release the prophetic to promise you a bigger house or a more expensive car, I release the prophetic to build you up in kingdom things, to cause your faith to grow, to make your heart pure before Me. A form of materialism has crept into the prophetic, but that is not of Me. It is true that I am a rewarder of My faithful servants. There are times when My rewards are material. But the rewards I most often release are joy and victory and power and anointing upon a person's life, peace in their hearts and favor with others. I desire to bring you to maturity in Me, not to make you fat and comfortable and lazy in this life.

Do not misunderstand, there are those servants of Mine that I prosper materially for My kingdom purposes -- ones that I have called to be apostles and pastors and evangelists in the business world, ones that I have prospered materially that they might be positioned to be My witnesses. These ones are not distracted by the material gain, rather they are focused on My kingdom purposes and they look to Me and they take their direction from Me. I am not saying that you cannot be a Christian and be successful by the world's standards. Rather I am saying that your motivations must be kingdom motivations. You must seek the true riches of My kingdom and not the material riches of this kingdom. Your heart and motivation must be to serve and obey Me, not to increase your material possessions and your place of prominence and status among men.

So, you ask, what type of words am I releasing in this day and season? I am releasing words of life. I am releasing words that build up My body that each member may come to the full stature of maturity in Me. I am releasing words of hope and words of comfort. I am releasing words of vision. I desire that each of My servants knows the vision and calling that I have placed before them that they might walk in it. I am prophetically calling forth giftings that I have placed within My servants. And I am releasing anointings upon them that they might do My kingdom business and accomplish My kingdom purposes. I am calling My people to deeper levels of commitment and intimacy with Me, and I am empowering them to walk in it. I am releasing words of healing and words of restoration. I am releasing words of edification and exhortation and comfort to men, that the church might be built up and that the lost might be saved.

Lift Up Your Head

Bill Burns

You are the firstborn of this Day, for the morning of this age has broken forth, and I am calling to those who will be My messengers, those who will carry the end-time message of the Spirit and of power to the nations and even to those who dwell around you. It is not a hard thing for Me to speak a word through you, a word in due season, a word of encouragement to one who needs encouragement, who has fallen and drifted away. This is what I have called each of you to do as My witnesses. I would have you learn this mystery first. If there is no one to encourage you learn the secret of David, and seek to encourage yourself in the Lord. If you will do that, I will come and minister to you the words of life. You say, "But, Lord, I am alone." But, I say, "No, you are not." I am with you always, encouraging you if you would hear My voice. I speak to you words of life, pouring out My Spirit upon you, perfecting you, and causing you to walk in My ways, says the Lord.

Do not be rebellious children, for you know that I have given you free will, and if you rebel, I will let you go your way. I will not strive with the will of man. I speak of those who have been called many times prophetically by the Spirit to come unto Me. Many have been apprised of their sins and those things that have been spoken out in My house, but My voice has been disregarded, and they will go their own way and not walk in My way, says the Lord.

It should not be you, My children, who walk the path of rebellion, which leads to everlasting hell. But, you should walk in the way of life -- in the way of righteousness. I have called you to do so. Follow Me on this path of life. Walk in righteousness, for I will open the doors, and I have made a way for you to walk in. I am not expecting you to go by yourself, but I will empower you by My Spirit and lead you into eternal life and glory.

Lift up your head, says the Lord. Lift up the hands that have become weary. Lift yourself up, for I have given you strength and power to do so. Lift Me up in your heart and then I shall lift you up, and you shall see visions of this age. You shall see the glory, for it shall come forth to pull you unto Myself, and we will be one.

Set Your Sights On Me

Musa Opiyo

Colossians 3:1-2 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2-Set your mind on the things above, not on the things on the earth.

My child, set your sights on Me, your Protector, your Provider, your Shield of protection in the midst of adversary. For there is no other name whereby you may trust. I am the Lion of Judah, and I roar a mighty roar for you, My beloved. Take your eyes off your problems, your struggles, and place them upon Me.

I am here to meet with you, to have communion with you. Just cast all your cares upon Me, because I care for you. My hand is mighty upon you, and I will never leave you nor forsake you. Hold this promise close to your heart, for it is the assurance of My sincere involvement in your life, says your God.

Above All Get Your Heart Right

Ras Robinson

There are several of my friends who are having serious heart difficulties at this very hour. As I have prayed and asked for discernment the Lord said to me: Look and see. Open the eyes of your heart to know what I am saying in the physical and in the spiritual through these things. The physical you see. Let me show you the spiritual. Even in the heart of my children there are the following heart conditions: blockages to the flow of my blood through them, hardness of the heart in hearing and obeying my voice, they have built walls that prevent me from bringing forth the new things I have for them, unbelief in every word that comes from my mouth. Now I say unto you cleanse both your hands and your heart before me in utter humility while there is still time. Stop right now the bitter jealousy and selfish ambition. Stop the judging of the hearts of others. As for you you do not know about tomorrow. Handle this today and let me heal you completely. If you can receive it, I have healed you at this instant. Above all get your heart right.

John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful."

Fullness in Christ Church

Vision Of a Dance Floor

Marsha Burns

I had a vision of a dance floor and people dancing. The music was ethereal and the rhythm was distinct. Those who were moving in precision with the music were crowned and carried scepters. There were others dancing, but they were out of step as though they could not hear the music. They were neither crowned nor did they have scepters. And the Lord said: I am looking for those who will listen carefully and move in precision with the rhythm of My heart, for I will cause your every step to be carefully choreographed to fulfill My ultimate design and purpose. You will flow with those who also move by the power of My Spirit and display a distinct poise and grace as you progress. Those who are out of step are those who are doing their own thing apart from My Spirit, and they will disrupt the flow by drawing attention to themselves. They will lack the power and authority that belong to My heirs. Be still. Quiet your soul and attune your heart to hear and respond to the move of My Spirit. Therein lies the secret of power and authority.

Faith Tabernacle

Releasers of Life

James Donovan

This is the day, time and season for My servants, the prophets, flow in My anointing. I have called you to speak forth My oracles and be releasers of My spirit on this earth.

As you flow in My anointing My boldness you shall see My people set free to flow in My anointing, My boldness, My authority, I am leading My people to strengthen and encourage by My words of Life. I am the way, the truth, the life as My people flow in Me. They shall arise and be free to worship Me. They shall have freedom and liberty in their spirit man. So arise and flow in My anointing, My liberty, My freedom and the leading of My voice and you shall see the captives set free. You shall see mountains of doubt and sorrow and hopelessness disappear. You shall see a abundance of My rain, My glory releasing the captives as you are obedient to My voice.

So arise and go forth be bearers of My good news, release the prisoners to flow in Me. Arise and be releasers of truth and life for those in darkness. You shall see My light reign over darkness.

The Little Key

My children,

You have everything you need as I have promised. Why then do you go about as beggars, seeking favour, seeking admiration, seeking praise? Truly you are a people richly blessed by my provision. But I have called you as servants and you cannot serve others as I desire until you have fully laid down your own agenda.

Come to me and let us look at this together. Was I not cut and bleeding too? Was I not wounded and shamed and tortured for your sake? I say to you it is your wounding that causes you to seek the praise of men. Yes their words will soothe you, their company will lift you, and you will feel better, you will feel the wounding was worth it. Was it only worth it for what man could bless you with?

Feast your eyes again on the things of My kingdom. This is a great day to be found busy in Me. Do not despise the wounds that you have, they are beautiful to me. They are tokens, they are evidence of my work in your heart. When you see those wounds in others, remember that promise. The servant is not above his Master. These are My true servants who have been wounded, and you are among them.

I have given you all a key, and it is hidden away within you. It is a little key that unlocks my favour and the bounty of my wealth with which I want to bless you so much. In time past you set your heart on heavenly things, not the things of this world. And will you now not use the little key to open up the door to the treasures I have laid up for you?

Come to me, my beloved. Put your hand upon the little key. Tell me what hurts you and what hinders you and what stops you from receiving your inheritance.

You know who I AM. Have you ever had reason to think me unmerciful? Am I a hard Master?

You need my mercy, beloved; you need the free flow of my forgiveness and restoration now and always while you walk this earth. Do not refuse Him who speaks to you. Do not settle for less than the best.

I have sent my servants to you to help you. Sometimes beloved as you have felt them reach into your heart and touch that place where you were straying from me, and that sore spot in you that you have despised, it is as though you thought you were being robbed, as though the hand that touched had entered your pocket to steal what you have.

Do you see how you had begun to behave like a beggar, fearfully holding on to what you thought belonged to you? The self-respect, the self-assurance, the you see now how self-centred that is?

I ask you to take up the little key that belongs to you. You know where it is located, in that humble place of honesty before me in your heart. I long for you to pick up that key. No one can steal it from you; I have made it just for you. No one can have what I have promised you. No one can open up and steal from you what I have purposed in my heart to give you. They are heavenly gifts rightfully yours to use in your heavenly calling.

So do not seek any longer the things that the world thinks are valuable, or protect about your person those jangling and vain ornaments of mens' admiration. You know these things will pass away as this world passes. If you will come to me in confession and repent of all your wrong motives and hidden agendas, I have promised to forgive and to cleanse and to heal and to restore.

I will open up to you more quickly than you thought, for my help is in the ever-present tense.

Just use the little key.

Words of Fire

Jane Larsen

Open your mouth and speak for I will bless the words of your mouth and you will speak with words of fire. Words that will burn down the threats of the enemy, that will burn down the strongholds and the places he has stolen from My people. Words that will smolder the darts of the enemy. I will bless the thoughts of your mind and fill you with wisdom in all things, so that you know the way to go and you go that way.

Speak and see. It is not only you that I bless, but all those that surround My throne. Words of fire with power will come forth and you shall speak in victory. Remember the power of My word. Remember that in the beginning I saw darkness yet I spoke light. And there was light. Words of power and words of healing are coming from you. Speak them out loud and do not flee, for My strength is within you, My hand guides you.

Realms of Glory

Undrai Fizer

For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. Hab.2:14

Your level of growth is determined by the degree in which you have been burned by the Presence of God. You are the level of your last consumption by the Spirit of Life. Many experience the Presence without being burned away from their present reality. Their understanding remains at the place it was before their experience with Glory.

Glory comes to remove your humanity, not to make you emotionally pleasant. The Glory comes to burn away your previous perspectives, giving you a greater insight into the Life. When your perceptions remain, you have not been burned up.

You are at the place where you have last been burned up. This determines where you really are in life, maturity, and purpose. Many receive knowledge from the Glory, but they do not become reborn in the Glory. True Kingdom wisdom comes from the ashes of former humanity, now a shining treasure of gold in the Father's Hand.

Truth that comes from a place of not being consumed will change. It will not stand. It will fade away. When lives are burned up, there leaves no room for politics, dissension, or rejection. Why? Because true growth is revealed by the humanity that one loses, not by the humanity that one keeps!

When you lose your life, you will find it!

Growth in the Spirit is not by what you contain, but by what you lose. Growth is not simply in feeling the Glory or seeing the Glory. It is found by dying in Glory. Becoming burned away in Glory. Creating an atmosphere that keeps flesh and it's perspectives alive is not a good atmosphere. The Glory, without the burning, will simply remain glory. But Glory, with the Fire, will determine the habitation and the revealing of the sons of God in the world. The Fire will melt away the ragged things leaving behind the substance of gold and wisdom that was intended by the Father.

Fire is designed to draw out the wisdom of the Ancient One from within you. The Fire of the Spirit is not simply the burning away of sinful habits only. (Perfection, without substance, is not perfection. It is a flattering image.) The Fire of the Life burns away any part that need not remain leaving behind the Predetermined Purposes that were spoken within the core of the soul.

NOTE: The beauty of Life is exposed in you as a byproduct of flesh being burned away. The beauty of the Kingdom is seen in you after the Fire and not before. There are some things we cannot do until we are burned away. Prayer will create the atmosphere that produces the Glory, that produces the Fire, that results in humanity being burned away.

There can be no maturity without Fire. No revelation without Fire. Your mind must burn when you hear the Words of the Kingdom. Your heart must burn within when hearing the Word of the Kingdom in any form. Even reading from the Manifestation would cause a burning in the heart and burning of the mind. You are at the level of what remains.

The Glory and the Fire will also burn away the exit doors that keeps one away from full advancement into the Life of God. You will grow as you burn away.
