Fight for the Vision

I had a dream in which I saw a silver Bald Eagle swiftly fly into my house and land on me as if it was bringing me something. Its feathers were exquisite, a silver I've never seen before. The feathers on its head were white as a bald eagle would be except the white was shimmering as if dusted with diamonds. Next I found myself outside my door and I saw a silver and white raccoon crawling on the side of my neighbors house. And lastly I remember a little brown, soft and fluffy guinea pig coming into my yard. When I found it I knew it wasn't mine and that I needed to find its owners. But at the same time I knew it wanted to stay with me. It was almost as if it thought I was its mother. I kept it for a bit and cared for it but I knew its owners would need to be found and given to them.

I knew the dream was personal but I was also aware of the prophetic message it delivered. As the Lord ministered to me today, I heard the words, "fight for your vision!" I saw many people with dreams and visions that God had given them. These dreams were still in their fetal stage and needed to be protected. Like a baby needs to be cared for and covered, so too these dreams God placed within many. I saw these dreams as fragile eggs that people were carrying with them. If left unattended they would be snatched up by an opportunistic prowler lurking near by. On the other hand I saw some people that were coddling them and were not allowing them to properly mature because they did not want to let them go. Whatever dream or Vision God has placed within you is your responsibility to protect, nurture, care for, and cultivate growth. As any good mother would you must help this baby grow to its full potential and then release it to do the work it was created to do. So many people are not properly nurturing or protecting the dream God placed within them so the enemy is stealing the vision. And many others are holding onto something because it has become to comfortable and because of fear and selfishness have not allowed the gift God placed in them to be released. We must understand that when God gives us something to cultivate and release it's generally not ours to keep; it belongs to those who’s lives it was meant to touch and therefore it is our duty to cultivate and release the gifting. We must fight to keep the vision God placed within us and like and eagle have eyes to see it off. So many dreams have not come to fruition because they have been prematurely snatched away. We must be able to "zero in" and target the foes that threaten our dreams with their cries of "abort mission!" Foes of fear, of selfishness, of delay, foes of weariness, of complacency, of laziness, of lack, foes of failure, defeat and give up. While so many enemies shout, "abort, abort, abort!" God is saying, "fight for the vision, complete the mission!"

Isaiah 40:31

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Psalm 147:15

He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.

Job 39:29

From thence she (the eagle) seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.

Psalm 119:60 I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.

Matthew 25:14-30 parable of the talents

Zero In

Definition of zero in on

1 : to direct all of one's attention to (someone or something)

2 : to aim something (such as a gun or camera) directly at (someone or something)

God is calling us to zero in on some things. He's also giving us the spiritual eyes capable of seeing with such accuracy that we can zero in and close in on the target. I sense that there are several targets God is wanting to zero in on. One, He wants to get our eyes on the prize, what is it that He's put in your heart to do? Time to refocus and zero in! Two, God is putting a big target on the enemy's back. Time to zero in on the enemies working against us within our own hearts. I saw the Lord exposing the enemies within our own hearts and minds and as we zero in on the target He gives us the grace to close in and overcome. Overcoming strategies are being prepared. Press into the Lord and receive your strategy.

Revelations 12:20

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony;

2 Tim 2:21

If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

2 Chronicles 16:9

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

Leaving the Safety of the Net

There are many in bondage to their safety net. Unable to step out in faith or even move into My promises because their safety net has become the very net they are in bondage to. Fail-safes rooted in fear cannot produce works of faith. You must leave the safety of the net. Self preservation and protection has become the net that hold so many captive. Holding onto old remedies and unable to take a hold of My solutions. Fear of failure and loss has kept so many in bondage. Some people are unwilling to leave their safety nets and fully trust Me, stunting their own growth and forward momentum. You must let go of fears that threaten to pull you under and look to Me the author and finisher of your faith. 

2 Peter 2:19
While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

Matthew 14:29-31
29And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

Hebrews 12:1-2
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Divine Solutions and New Year's Resolutions

God is bringing divine solutions for New Year’s resolutions, so much solution falling from heavenly sources. The heavens are busy with New Year’s solutions. As we send our resolutions God is sending His divine solutions! The heavens are full of preparation and planning for the New Year ahead so much in store, in 2019 there's more! I see God with pen in hand ready to write some new stories in 2019. Out with the old and in with the new, the story He'll tell is a new one about you. It’s not the same old same old anymore; God is flipping the script and switching the roles. Be prepared for the tables are turning in your favor! This year will mark a great turning point as God is changing the message that has long been rehearsed over so many lives! Turning and yearning, 2019 will be churning!

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 

Zephaniah 3:19 Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.3:20 At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD.

 

Fully Engaged

This year you will begin to see a lot of engagements and weddings take place, a lot of long time waiting promises fulfilled. Because this year I am fully engaging with my people. Fully open, looking into the face of my bride. I am breaking off lies of lack and taking territory back. I'm breaking co-dependencies this year and cycles of negativity. I am restoring value and worth to my people and the ability to fully engage with Love. For many have been so devalued, lived in so much lack and unloved, that they have lost the ability to receive love. The receptors are clogged and disengaged but I am setting the stage for a reengage. A realignment with truth, with my promises, with my value system. All systems ENGAGE!! No more within a cage but the freedom to fully ENGAGE!

2 Corinthians 3:17
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.


Resource and Recourse

I have resource and divine recourse ready to be outsourced to the body. As many are coming under attack I am sending out a counter attack, I am fighting on your behalf. As you have felt trapped and surrounded, I am sending in divine provision and resource. Divine recourse. I will be the source of recourse. I will set you on a new course. I am fighting divorce, I have recourse for divorce. I will bring resource for a new recourse. Divorce has made a play but I will have the final say! I will unify and I will petrify every plan of the enemy to bring discord. I will nulify his proceedings. His accusations will not stand for I have a solution in my hand and I am stretching it further, my reach is increasing, divorce rates are ceasing as my Spirit is increasing! No more will my house be known as a divided Kingdom with walls and shutters, no more will divorce have her hand among my own. No longer will a dissembled body stand on crutches before me. But she will rise out of the ashes of defeat and despair to declare the works of the Lord! She will not be a broken and tattered bride who has been stripped of her crown but she is a glorious bride standing in the light of the Son, ready to take her place. Ready to wage war, she is not timid or shy, she is not fearful or undone. She is a mighty warrior, yet she is gentle giant. In grace and purity she will stand redeeming the time! Its not over, it has just begun, the time to take your rightful place standing in the Son!

Exposing False Identities

I am exposing lies and thievery, those who operate under false authority. There is a great exposure coming forth upon the earth and you will begin to see it in the news. Even now it has already begun and I will continue to root up and ground out these workers of falsehood. I am bringing great exposure to my house and those who are committing thievery in my house shall be exposed and vexing lies exposed. See that you speak truth with your neighbor and work with your hands that which is good and acceptable so that you bring not a reproach against your house and Mine. 

Zech 5:3-4 Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it. 4I will bring it forth, saith the LORD of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.
Eph 4: 25Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27Neither give place to the devil. 28Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. 29Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. 30And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you


I See Freedoms Wingspan

"I see Freedom's wingspan over the nation, I see freedom coming to US again. I see Freedom's wingspan over the nation, Washington to Washington bringing freedom again!"

This song resounded within me as I began to go into a vision in which I saw an Eagle called Freedom flying over the US. This eagle was robed in the flag colors of red, white and blue. The tip of each it's wings from Washington to Washington. As I sang this prophetic release I saw the Lion of Judah roaring over the US and I saw the Lord bend His head down out of Heaven and blow over the US. As He released His breath I saw whirlwinds began to form.  He continued to blow, I blew also and declared whirlwinds of freedom clear the fog and smog. I could began to smell the fresh air the winds brought in as I saw the fog blow off the cities. I could could feel the jubilant feeling of refreshing and freedom in the atmosphere. As all this was taking place the minty fresh smell around me increased like I smelt the breath of Heaven! Then I saw the whirlwinds begin to turn into twirling dancers, who danced all over the map. As they danced, He was singing freedom, declaring freedom, breathing freedom, and dancing freedom upon US! 

ENTERrupt and Occupy

I want to interrupt lives, will you be interrupted? I have something I want to say, somethings I want to do. Can I interrupt you? Some people think I'm a disruption but I want people who are willing to listen to My interruption. I want to interrupt lives, families, jobs, situations, homes, children, school and SLEEP! People who will be interrupted by Me will be lifted by Me. Your surrender, your willingness to listen, your willingness to abandon your own motives and plans to take on mine, I desire. For in that yielded place there is power, the power to change lives, to shift atmospheres, when you put aside your agendas to pursue Mine. Will you be interrupted? That's the question I'm asking. Are you willing to pay a price with your time so that I have freedom to move in you and through you? Or will you keep Me caged in your comfort zone? Interruption isn't always comfortable but I'm always a Comfort. Let me interrupt you so I can interrupt them. I want to interrupt lives and disrupt the plans of the enemy. As I interrupt you I will also occupy you. Will you allow me to occupy your lives? Will you make me your first occupation? I desire a place to dwell, will you be a resting place for Me? I desire to fully occupy.

Revelations 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

 

An Excellent Identity

Excellent:

1) Very good of its kind: eminently good

2) extraordinary; superior

3) Used to indicate approval 

God has been opening so things up to me about identity and in a world where identity is disappearing there is a greater need to know who we are. So often we think excellence is a gained by how good we can be or make something look. A process of achieving. But excellence isn't something we make happen, excellence is something we are!

Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

You see God created us in Christ Jesus unto good works. We don't become good or excellent  by our good works but rather our good works are a product of the good work He created. Therefore our identity is excellent. We didn't become excellent through our works, we are excellent and once we are aware of that then naturally excellence flows from that place of identity. 

The first definition says: Very good of its kind: eminently good.

    -You are already excellent! Genesis 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

The second definition said: extraordinary; superior

    -God gave us dominion at creation! Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. See also Deut 14:2 and 1 Peter 2:9

The third definition said: Used to indicate approval

    -You are already approved! Eph 1;6 says we are accepted in the beloved. Psalm 149:4 says the Lord takes pleasure in His people. 

Appearance by itself is not excellence. Excellence is a product of what is already working on the inside. Excellence is a by product of these three things:

LOVE- we can't be excellent  if we're no loving eachother

HONOR- we can't be excellent if we're not honoring the people God placed around us and the gift he placed in them.

HUMILITY- we can't be excellent when "what I want and what I get" becomes more important than who I'm with. People be more important than things and "self" has to get put on the proverbial shelf. 

Micah 6:8 sums these three up:

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

A synonym for just is honorable. 

God requires this of us and to walk in the fullness of our identity we must acknowledge that He already created us unto these good works through Christ Jesus. 

Eph 3:16-19 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

Filled with the fullness

Fully Identifying

PDA (Public Display of Affection)

 

I hear the Spirit say, some of us need to work on our PDA.
Our public display of affection towards Him. Many of us have a private romance with Him but in public we put up walls and barriers because of fear or self-consciousness about what others might think. But God wants us to fully experience who He is in every way. Just as we have physical senses we have spiritual senses as well and God wants us to experience Him in each one of those sense. Not to just hear Him but to touch, taste, see, and smell Him. And He wants us to experience Him not just in our prayer closets but also in our public display of worship and affection toward Him. To be completely surrendered, to be fully open, to be so engulfed and enamored by His presence that there isn't room for self consciousness, no room for self gazing just Son gazing. Because it is when we give our attention fully to Him we can experience the fullness of what's available to us. Not just at home in those private moments but in every moment, in every place, to be fully aware of His presence. To live every day fully experienceing Him! 

Psalm 34
Song chap 1-2

Reformation Transformation

Too many people are trying to have a transformation without first having a Reformation. Too many people trying to fix internal problems with external solutions. You see a lot of buildings remolded, schools rebuilt, a lot of decor changes but not inner changes. People longing for transformation, schools longing for transformation, businesses longing for change, cities desperate to transform but they have no one to reform. Transformation is the product of internal Reformation. There needs to be someone to do the inside job. You need a man on the inside and I'm the man for the job! I Am the source and I have the solution, some want the source and few want the solution. You want transformation? Let Me reform you! I will reform your cities, I will reform your schools, I will reform your government and I will reform you! No job is too big, no job is too small, send them to me, I can fix them all!

Matthew 23:26
