IN DEBT to the Believer and the Unbeliever
"Both to Greeks and to barbarians
(to the cultured and the uncultured), both to the wise and to the foolish,
I have an obligation to discharge and a duty to perform and a debt to pay."

Cause a Landslide of Blessings

I want to share something that has been strong in my spirit all week since our last Monday night intercessors prayer meeting. It started from a prophetic act that we did during a time that we were pressing into the release of finances and blessings upon the people. One of the intercessors began to stomp her heal into the ground and declare, "We are on top of the mountain, and we are breaking off the rocks of His blessings and causing a landslide of His blessing and finances to fall down on the people." When she declared this we all caught that image and declaration in the Spirit and began to join in and stomp with our heals and declare this proclamation. And as we did, it set us into a prophetic stomping and then released us into a dancing of victory and rejoicing as we saw the landslide and avalanche of blessings being released on the house and onto the people. It was such a time of victory we had, such a time of dancing on the mountaintop in our victory and our rejoicing.

Since that night I have continued to feel the anointing on that act and that declaration as the Lord has continued to bring that word back into my spirit and use it to declare and decree a landslide of finances and blessing to be released over my family and over my church and even over co-workers that have shared with me the dire circumstances that they are facing right now. This last week when one co-worker shared, the Lord just prompted me to take that position of authority and victory on the mountaintop and begin to stomp with my heal right in front of her and declare a release and landslide of blessings, favor and finances to come upon her and her family. I shared the experience we had at prayer and what God was wanting to do in our lives as we go up higher into our place of victory and authority over the circumstances.
The Lord was showing me that the rock we were stomping our heal into was Jesus Christ. He is the Rock. And as we do this we are putting a demand on the grace and mercy and blessings of favor that are found in that Rock. It's His grace, and it's His mercy that He has purchased for us and the people, and we are to go to the high place of His presence and put a demand on that grace and mercy and favor to be released. As intercessors that is what we are called to do, to stand in the gap, to bring the needs of the people before God and put a demand on the grace, mercy and favor of God through Jesus Christ to be released. God is into blessing His children. He wants to bless us.  And His eyes "look to and fro across the earth to strongly support those whose heart is completely His." He will respond with a landslide of blessings, with a landslide of grace and mercy, when we come to Him with hearts that are fully His, when we take a stand on the Rock of who we are in Christ and put a demand on that grace and mercy that is ours in Christ Jesus. God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. He is faithful and He watches over His Word to perform it. He is looking for people that will rise up out of their circumstances and come up to the mountain of the Lord, into the high place of His presence and seek His face and His heart, and place a demand on His grace, on His unearned, unmerited favor to be released. He delights in our position that we take in Him. He loves to see us take our place in the Kingdom, to take our position above the circumstances and put a demand on His love and His grace. He is ready to respond to His children that have left behind the things of the world and their dependency on the world's system and have come up to the mountain of the Lord to seek His face and to plead His cause for the need of the people. He is not an angry God. He is a God full of love and mercy and grace that is drawing us up higher out of our bondages and dependancies of the world. He wants our hearts and He wants us to rise up in who we are IN Him.

So let us come up to the mountain of the Lord. Let us come up higher out of our circumstances and into His presence, into our secret place, and into our positions IN Christ. Let us put a demand on the grace and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, out Rock and our Deliverer, our Redeemer and King.

"Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord?
And who may stand in His holy place"
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood,
And has not sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive a blessing from the Lord
And righteousness from the God of his salvation.
This is the generation of those who seek Him,
Who seek His face--even Jacob."
Psalm 24:3-6

Slipping Into the River

The other day the Lord showed me a river and many of us were in the river enjoying its refreshing and life, but there were a lot of people, many family members and friends, etc, that were standing on the river bank that wouldn't get in even though we had encouraged them to.  Then the Lord showed me that it started to rain, and it rained and rained, and the rain began to make the river bank slippery. Then all of the sudden the people began to start slipping off the river bank and into the river. It was the rain of God's love that was coming down on them and causing the stronghold of the river bank that they stood on to become slippery and make them slip into it. He showed me that it's God's love that just sweeps us off our feet and takes us into the river of His life and Spirit. Praise God, His love never fails. He is SO faithful.
This prophetic vision really encouraged me as He showed me family members and friends that I have carried in my heart and prayed for for many years to enter into the things of God, to receive His love and grace and to say "Yes" to Him and just believe that He IS.

Lord, thank You for this picture. Thank You for Your river of Love, for the river of Your Spirit that comes down from Your throne in heaven and pours into our lives. Thank You for Your grace that abounds to us because of Your Son Jesus that gave His life, that shed His blood, that paid for our sins, that redeemed us back into our covenant relationship with You. Thank You for loving us when we are unlovely, for protecting us and keeping us, for keeping us from the evil one. Thank You for meeting our needs, for providing and blessing us when we look to You for help and provision. Thank You for Your faithfulness, for Your love that never fails, for Your grace that is sufficient to carry us and keep us. Thank You for the rain of Your Spirit, the rain of Your love. Cause Your rain of love to fall heavy on us, Lord. Cause it to sweep us off our feet. We love You, Jesus. We embrace Your love and we give You our lives, our hearts, our minds, our everything. Do all that You want to do in us that we may reflect Your love and glory to others and to this world. Amen

LACK - Lies Against Christ's Kingdom

I want to share a place and revelation the Lord led me to this last week that was powerful, impacting and life changing to me, and I pray it will be for you as well. It began with a sister in the Lord asking us, the Sunday morning intercessors, for prayer as she shared a vision she had of going up the mountain of the Lord. As she climbed in the Spirit and got higher and higher, fear came over her when she remembered and realized that she was afraid of heights in the natural. (Going across bridges terrifies her.) So she turned around and started to go down the mountain instead of going higher. She asked for prayer to break fear off of her so she could go higher in the things of God. She knew this fear of heights in the natural was limiting her in the Spirit as well. So as we began to pray, the Lord reminded me of the word I had heard that FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real, and I saw this transparent ceiling or barrier over her that wasn't allowing her to go higher. It was really a false barrier. It was a lie. It was a barrier that she (we) had put up with her (our) own thoughts that she (we) had brought in alignment with the evidence of circumstances. I shared this with her and we began to break through this barrier of lies and fear.

Later that week I was in a place of prayer just praising God that He had given me His heart and that it was a heart to give and bless others. And as I worshiped and loved Him in this place, my heart rose up to meet Him and join with His. And then as my heart and spirit joined His, it immediately made a U-turn and went down to bless the people. But when it did this, it hit a barrier, a transparent-like barrier that wouldn't let His full blessing pass through. He told me that was a barrier of LACK, and it stood for Lies Against Christ's Kingdom. It was a barrier that we, His people, had put up with our own thoughts that we brought into agreement with the circumstances around us. It wasn't truth, it was a false barrier. He said, "The truth IS...the Kingdom of God lies within you, and in the Kingdom there is NO LACK. The truth IS...You are My child and you are blessed. The truth IS... there is a shield of favor that surrounds you. The truth IS... you are blessed going in and blessed going out. The truth IS... you are blessed when you rise up and blessed when you lie down. You are blessed in the field and blessed in your home." He continued to say, "The truth IS... wealth and riches are in your house. The truth IS... everything that you put your hands to prospers and every place that the sole of your foot treads I have given it to you. The truth IS... the wealth of the wicked is laid up for you. The truth IS... there is an inheritance that has been set aside just for you that's been predestined for you for a good work that I've prepared beforehand that you should walk in. The truth IS... that inheritance covers everything you need. The truth IS... I meet ALL your needs. The truth IS... I cause all grace to abound to you that having sufficiency in all things, you may have an abundance for every good work. The truth IS... the devil is a liar, and he comes to steal, kill and destroy, but I come to give you life and give it to you abundantly. The truth IS... a life hidden in Christ is a life lived in the Kingdom and in the Kingdom you have no lack, and there is no poverty there." He said, "The truth IS... you will KNOW the truth and the truth will set you FREE."

The Lord just began penetrating that false barrier of lies with the truth of His Word. His truth began to cut through that barrier and tear it to shreds till it was no more, till there was a clear passageway of His heart and His blessings to flow down through. The Lord was showing me clearly here how we set up this false barrier of lack (lies against Christ's kingdom) and live our lives there when we should be living our lives in the truth of His Word. When we live in His truth there is no false barrier, because we see as He sees. We see the truth, and it sets us free from lack.

It was a few days later that the depth of this revelation had worked into my spirit as I had been meditating on it and embracing it, and when I woke up the other morning my spirit sat up out of bed and said, "Wow, there REALLY IS no lack!" It was like the scales or blinders had been removed from my eyes. I saw it clearly. And then I saw these jail bars in front of me, and the jail doors were wide open, and realized they had been open all the time. With my eyes covered and blinded by the lies that I had come into agreement with, I thought I was behind closed doors and couldn't get out, but the Lord was showing me that the doors had been open all the time. I could have gone out all along if I had just taken the blinders off by walking in agreement with His Word.
I don't know if this witnesses to you, but it was fresh revelation and ministered to me.

So I hope this encourages you as you read it. The truth IS.... there IS NO LACK in the Kingdom of God, and as a believer, the Kingdom of God is in YOU. The truth IS... the Kingdom is within. It is inside every believer. Everything you need is already there inside of you. It's already been created and provided. It just needs to be released by the spoken word and believed.

 Let the redeemed of the Lord, say so!

Help us, Lord. Help us to see this truth and act on it. Help us to carry the Word in our heart and speak it out of our mouth. Help us to embrace the truth that sets us free and walk out and live out our freedom in You, in who we are in Christ. Let our mouths be full of Your Word and Your truth. Give us eyes to see, ears to hear and hearts to understand. And I pray this in Jesus name. Amen
