Around age 7 the speech impediment began. Mom and Dad could not figure out why and how this found it’s way into my life. Public reading became a burden, while personal communications carried it’s own style for survival.
Introductions were strenuous, answering questions worse, answering phone calls terrifying, and reading in public a disaster. Only with those I was comfortable with was I able to converse with.
No one knew my internal struggle except my parents. Adolescent shyness caused me to internalize the daily challenge to overcome. My soul felt like she was within an unbreakable globe of fear.
Third grade brought on challenges no student should face. My friend and I emotionally abused by a school teacher during recess encouraged the silence. He, placed in a garbage can and ridiculed while I was demanded to read outloud with the threat of no recess unless accomplished. Needless to say, recess time was silently detested by my friend and I. Rarely were we permitted to join the others.
Fourteen years old brought an end to shyness, but a compromise for speech was adopted. At home and at the public library, books for personal reading were a favorite past time. Words were a deep love. Every book reachable was picked up and read alone, yet to communicate I had to let go of the more complex words just to be able to verbalize a complete sentence. The day I chose to dumb down my learned dictionary of words was a sad day. But, it worked. The less complex the word, the better I could create a vocal pattern to speak. Yes, my bank of brilliant words was bankrupt for years.
Atmospheres where control was present were the worst for me. I’ll leave that statement there.
While in College mandatory speech classes were the death of me. Worse was finding out that an Education minor came with an eight week student teaching requirement. Yes, you are right. Minors were changed at the chagrin of my Professor, a beloved man who had followed my love for teaching since I was nine years old. He knew God’s call on my life. He begged me not to change minors. Petrified fear won for that moment, as I switched my minor to Counseling. My internal belief was, “Never would I stand before people to preach, for a class lecture, or otherwise.”
One day as I sat in one of our Counseling lectures, the President of the College came in to chat with the graduating class. Midway to the back I sat with no warning that he was about to ask me a question which I would need to publically respond to. I had no time to hide. Why would he even ask college graduates such a question (now I chuckle)?
“If you had the choice of being an animal which animal would you want to be?” No, no, no he did not just call me by name!! Oh yes he did!!! What a question.
What would be the easiest response?
How was I going to find my breath to begin the process of stuttering out the impossible “H” sound? No other letter would work. W, B, P, A … My mind raced looking for a substitute. At this point I just needed an animal sound to sputter out without the torturious 15 second stammering delay. None!
The “H” sound was needed to begin the word “horse.” “I would of chosen to be a wild hhhhhhhorse.” The lack of oxygen in those moments were suffocating. Heat overtook my body, as silence filled the classroom.
A few years later, I was asked to give the announcements for a church service followed by sharing my heart re:a specified topic. To get out of this assignment was IMPOSSIBLE. The Pastor of the church would not take no as an option. He said this was part of the job description. He won.
As I took my place behind the plexiglass podium, microphone gripped as if containing some kind of life line, I opened my mouth hoping for words. As I opened my mouth I felt something ‘other worldly’ come and rest on my shoulders. Something light yet heavy, something freeing yet with identity, something joyful and intentional. For the first time in fourteen years the rope which bound my ability to properly communicate was apprehended and removed. Holy Spirit was sent that day to deliver me, and to set my feet on a path to relearn communication and to embrace teaching. He introduced Himself so well.
When His Holy Spirit comes, there is the enabling force to speak. The mundane out of time words and teachings do not carry with them the power God intends.
A Horse. A creature representing a spirit of one who chooses to yield to the Will of The Creator. A carrier of a message. A creature fit for battle. A fearless beast. One who charges into the fray. A ride which leads champions into the impossible.
God and the magnitude of His Identity is unsurmountable!
One compassionate roar from His heart shakes the globe, as one expression of love reconciles a broken heart. His vastness causes the natural mind to standstill, unable to comprehend further.
What causes Him to lighten up the sky with a response or turn away revealing darkness?
Mysteries, desires, and plans hidden are within the innumerable (googol) pathways of thoughts God formed within Himself. One of those pathways has your name written on it.
Do we sit with Him in the highest of heavens as He observes the daily calculations of progression–life growth in all of nature, all of the heavens, in each individual, of all land and sea creatures, insects, and vegetation? Are we with Him as He measures the water levels available for the wilderness, oceans, and soil of the earth?
Do we hear as He does, the thousands of daily victories experienced by individuals in villages, deserts, cities? Can you hear the footsteps of that young girl in India’s rural regions, as she walks the dirt path? Do you see her block-colored dress set on a black background?
Do we recognize and hold steady every individual struggling-contending?
Do we have the daily reports of heaven’s storehouses and earth’s vaults, their condition and measurements?
The way He links His time into earth’s clock … do we have those formulations?
The number of hailstones released, the strength of each lightning rod, the vibration measurements of each earthquake, the temperature of each volcano eruption.
He designed dimensions within His creation: each sphere-property of space-extension working in perfect unity with another; this with delight intertwined with mathematical equations, formed by Him. Are those dimensions known or have we sojourned there?
He created the maxim of character, the rule of conduct within contains an ingredient called “fruit.” One fruit chosen and acted upon is the unlocking of a code which releases the “creation of,” in-turn continuing the building of the unseen Kingdom. What is found within an action that has access to that ‘highway’ which travels into the heart of another, forming with such impact?
Do we have the measurements of the seam, hemming the natural and supernatural realms? What causes our actions in the natural realms to build within the supernatural realms?
Apostle Paul wrote to the church of Corinth saying, ” Who has the mind of Christ?” He wrote to the church in Philippi saying, “To know Him and the power of His resurrection.” He wrote to the church in Rome, “Who has known the mind of the Lord, and who became His counselor?”
Isaiah wrote saying, “Who has directed the Spirit of the LORD, or as His counselor has informed Him? With whom did He consult and who gave Him understanding? And who taught Him in the path of justice and taught Him knowledge and informed Him of the way of understanding?”
Jesus said and Matthew scribed, “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven.”
Jesus said about His Spirit, and John scribed, “I will send to you the Spirit of Truth.”
God said to Job, during those moments when earthly counselors thought they had God figured out, “Stand up like a man and instruct Me.”
Apostle Paul said regarding those who had yielded to the Kingship of Christ, “But we have the mind of Christ.”
……. and the meditation continues …… not even the end of eternity will reveal all of who God is. He is ONE God, and there is no other.
So intrigued, always, and stunned by His vastness; therefore, I rest in Him.
reminiscing of 1607, 1620, 2019-2020
“Thus says the Lord, “Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; and you will find rest for your souls.”
On Wednesday, March 18, 2019, one month before Passover; unbeknownst to me, I was about to be given a history lesson. This time God would be the Teacher. Standing overlooking an ancient city in Israel, the Lord spoke to me. His voice was so clear, like a friend standing next to me conversing.
God said, “My dreams of more then 400 years, for the United States, will now begin to be fulfilled.” My response was, “Lord, I didn’t know America was that old. 400+ years?” Puzzled, the filing cabinets of my memory were now opened and quickly I thumbed through dates. The Bicentennial Celebrations of 1776-1976 were not so far from memory, marking the USA’s 200th Birthday. “We hadn’t jumped that many years, had we?”
“Even those who traveled to the shores of the United States of America did not understand the fullness of what I planned for them, and My dreams for this land.” the Lord continued.
He then opened my eyes to see a portion of His dreams for His Kingdom dominion to be not only demonstrated, but to become part of the culture and way of life in this land. I could see the brilliance of His Glory upon the pioneers (glorious), and how the limitless wonder of transfiguration had yet not been comprehended, seen, therefore embraced; yet, He was excited to see such wonder conceived in this land.
The age of the nation was still puzzling me. 244 is the known age of the nation according to the Declaration of Independence. But it seems that God perceives the birthing of a nation differently. Kind of like how He marks the birth of a child at the moment of conception. He knows us as He weaves us in the womb of our mother; so too He knew the United States as He wove her together from 1607-1776. 413 years at the least. The Lord heard the questions of course and suggested a call to Jolene and Jonathan Hamill. I texted them while in Israel, on the 18th, and through a phone conversation began to learn about the beginnings of the nation and was reminded of Plymouth’s history. Junior High History must have really taken a back seat in my personal memories.
Along with this, I realized that Passover would be April 19 to the 27th in 2019, which would cover the 413 Anniversary of Cape Henry. This the place, where later Chris Mitchell would teach us of the pioneers who would not even move through the land until they had fasted and prayed for 3 days, followed by their second act being to pierce the land with a large cross made from the ships post. It is true, the Ancient Path in the United States leads to the Cross of Christ.
400 years!!! What does that remind us of? Why has the Lord made Communion such an important mandate since January 2019? Why is He saying that His children need to revisit the power, life, and voice of His blood for 2019 onwards, as we have passed thru the gate of a new Era of time?
Each nation carries a personalized message; however, within the Kingdom of God it is the same worldwide. 400 years marked the end of a bitter season of slavery for the Jews and those who chose to follow the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They had to leave behind the mindset of slavery of the tyrannical pharoahs and the gods of Egypt, crossing the Red Sea on dry ground.
Wilderness dwelling is not necessary. God’s Son has already poured out His blood for us. The promised land is where we live. His blood forever announces, “Forgiven” as it rests upon the mercy seat. He gave His life so that we can live. We are called to live through the One who arose into resurrection power, Life not only flows through His veins BUT He is LIFE itself!!
Kingdom Dominion available to pursue by anyone courageous enough to be embraced by Gods love!!
The United States today, 11-11-2020 will celebrate 400 years of the signing of the Mayflower Compact. The desire and dream of the people? To live with freedoms to worship God. God’s dream? There are many, but the one He spoke to me? ‘His Kingdom dominion to be not only demonstrated, but to become part of the culture and way of life in this land.’ This can be done as we fully embrace His reality of the Law of Grace in Christ Jesus.
Happy Anniversary United States of America!!!
Freedom is in your DNA, created by God.
He loves to dream and see dreams come to pass!!
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.Romans 8:11But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, “ YET ONCE MORE I WILL SHAKE NOT ONLY THE EARTH, BUT ALSO THE HEAVEN .” This expression, “Yet once more,” denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.
The song “Nothing But The Blood of Jesus” is sung by Jesus Culture, from their album ‘Awakening – Live from Chicago’
Art piece by Amy Rylander – https://www.amyrylander.com
The vision was given to Briskilla Zananiri
Home from abroad – Unwrapping
One of the fun moments which took place upon returning home, after being abroad for three months and three weeks, was when Malakey and I watched as Emil unpackaged a painting that had been shipped and waiting. Emil was Mr. Comedian as he cut into the box, unwrapping the canvas, BUT when we saw the unwrapped art piece, Malak’s nineteen-year-old expression said it all. The reality of God’s love towards all of humanity and the earth drenches us into depths of love. “Wow” was all that was needed and heard.
The vision was given to Briskilla and painted by Amy
Amy Rylander heard from Ruthie Young of the image God gave me while in Nazareth, Israel (on the 15th of March, 2020). She was brave enough to try to capture the essence. She did.
We had just completed a 2 a.m. Lamplighter call with Jolene and Jonathan Hamil. Time Zone realities. Following declarations, intercessions, and Communion, the presence of the Lord was still hovering. He didn’t want to leave. We just sat quietly as the dawn broke over Nazareth. The remaining Communion elements were resting on the table in front of us.
In those moments, the Holy Spirit gave a quick, beautiful, and compelling vision. With the speed of an ocean wave, the ‘leftover’ wine shot upward out of the glass and rolled swiftly to the window, enlarging into the size of a growing river.
The liquid wine grew in size as it cascaded over the window’s ledge onto the village of Nazareth below. The wine had transformed into the blood of Jesus Christ. This river swiftly moved through the city of Nazareth with no intention of stopping. The power of this river would continue rolling, covering the nation of Israel. This river, flowing throughout all the earth.
Pondering the Power of our God and His ways
It is at the Table of Remembrance where we can echo agreement with the testimony of Jesus Christ and His life among us.
“As often as you eat this bread and drink the cup,
you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.”
1 Corinthians 11:26
This, first in the natural and then in the spirit.
Remembering the mandate
God spoke last year, February and March (2019), saying He desired His Body of believers across the nation to gather around Communion. He told the effects would be of a unity which would cause a ‘blanketing’ of the land, dismantling dark witchcraft (a type foreign to the people of this nation).
Communion is not a fad, but an invitation to accept a Dinner appointment with the King-He who is God’s Dread Champion of His Kingdom of Love. He stands at the door of our hearts, knocking. He desires to eat from our table – that which we have prepared for Him.Our table destined to echo the power of His Table. Yes, He gave selflessly of Himself for our Redemption. He desires to come and eat that which we have prepared to give to Him – – His destiny fulfilled.
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door,
I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.”
One person at a time, opening the door of their hearts to His request, hosts the King of Glory. In doing this, and inviting Him to partake, He is receiving His Body back. Yes, this will provide Him with His gift to His Father – a completed family.
“For when You, Jesus, come to the door of our heart, we will recognize Your Glorious desire for friendship! Jesus, when You come, it is with the longing to receive back to You Your Body. Jesus, teach us how to yield to You and Your love, power, and Glory. Father, I am undone by Your reality! Lord, You gave the nations a way out of the Kingdom of Darkness. To those who say, ” Yes,” You usher them into the Kingdom of the Son of Your Love. Yes, in time to restore to You Your family. Thank You so much!!!”
His Body found all over the nations of the Earth
United States of America, Israel, Jordan, Europe, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Canada, Iceland, Syria, Lebanon, China, Chicago, Washington DC, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Greece, Near East Asia, Turkey, Qatar, Russia, Africa, Bahrain, Far East Asia, South America, Kurdistan, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, all the islands of the waters, Antarctica, and Australia.
“Thus He will sprinkle many nations,
Kings will shut their mouths on account of Him;
for what had not been told them they will see,
and what they had not heard they will understand ”
We are in a Blood War
The blood war we are in is one ushering us past the gates of the new era.
The powers of the ages, those of Light and those of darkness, are responding to the power of the Blood of the Lamb.
The just and unjust blood spilled in the nations of the World are calling for justice, as they rest before the Voice of God.
This blood war is a manifestation of the nearness of the King of the Kingdom of Light, and as a result, the powers of darkness are trembling.
This blood war is a manifestation of the Voice of God, and the reverberating resistance coming from the stoned hearts of those who have yielded to demonic powers.
This blood war is a manifestation of the Gavel of God and the deliverance nations are now experiencing.
This blood war is a manifestation of God’s love for His Harvest Fields, and the agitation of the serpent as he realizes his time is short.
This blood war is the time to wholly lean into God’s nearness, releasing the sound of the inner man. For the worship of Spirit and Truth is the highway to the 3rd heaven realms of Glory.
Trusting in His REALITY empowers us to stand.
The joy provided for us; actually, the relief is that God’s gift to all of creation – the resurrected blood of Jesus Christ, is powerful enough to wage war against the serpent. Yes, all by Himself. He is merely asking us to “Stand and see the salvation of our God.”
To stand is to believe and trust.
To stand means to ‘stand with HIM!”
To stand is to pause long enough for one’s eyesight to focus on God’s whereabouts; therefore, His actions.
To stand means to “see what He is doing and then to proclaim.”
To stand defined means to worship God, He who is the Alpha and the Omega.
To stand strengthens one to eat in the presence of our enemies.
To stand releases a war cry, brought on by eyes falling on the Magnificant One.
To stand releases gratitude.
To stand is Victory!
This blood war is His. We join in His Victory, yielding to His ways.
Father, we receive Your understanding.
” Therefore, listen to me, you men of understanding. Far be it from God to do wickedness, and from the Almighty to do wrong.”
“Wisdom is in the presence of the one who has understanding.”
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable.”
Yes. Communion. May this meal never become a cliche. May we see the victory sound which echos from each morsel shared and every drop of wine poured. For as we partake of His wine, we will see the multiplication of His life given as the mightiest of weapons of love.
Much love to you, in His graced mercy,
“The altar of our soul and nation is the pivotal place of a nation turning back to God.”
On March 30, 2020, many altars were built to the Lord (along with thousands more prior to this date); remembering the condition and response of the heart, which is so desired by God. Rania reminded us that the altar of our soul and nation is the pivotal place of a nation turning back to God. Due to this truth, twelve stones were chosen each representing one attribute of God’s acts of righteousness. His identity supplied to us – – His strength – – His ‘Fatherness’ – – His “I AM,” upon this foundation, we offer ourselves as living sacrifices.
“I have been crucified with Christ: and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died needlessly.” Galatians 2:20,21
Within the prophesies proclaimed and scribed by Micah, the righteous actions of God and man are highlighted. Micah differentiates between the righteous acts of God and the rebellious acts of humankind; offering an act of repentance, setting God’s people back onto the trajectory of righteousness. To ponder on the righteous acts of God is the very desire of God, according to Micah 6:5. Within the time frame of our generation learning more about God’s identity is before us, carrying with it the grace to learn how He builds and releases His will, addresses reasonings, and responds to humankind made circumstances.
“My people, remember now what Balak king of Moab counseled and what Balaam son of Beer answered him, and from Shittim to Gilgal so that you might know the righteous acts of the Lord.” Micah 6:5
The outcome? Experiencing the reality of God.
The twelve highlighted attributes/righteous acts of God we highlighted were as follows:
- God is the “I AM” – The I AM ransomed, liberating His people. (Exodus)
- God is Father, and LED His people – He gave His people Moses, Aaron, and Miriam (and others) to guard, guide, and keep them.
- God is Kind and Terrible – “Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?” Romans 2:4
- God is Reconciler: “Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses again them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.” 2 Corinthians 5:18-19
- God is Rich in Mercy and Reconciler of the nations: “ But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loves us, …made us alive together with Christ…and raise us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness … Remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from eh commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. …For He, Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, … by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, … so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace…in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” Ephesians 2: 4-22
- God is Holiness: “For thus says the high and exalted One who lives forever, whose name is Holy, I dwell on the high and holy place, and also with the contrite and lowly of spirit in order to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.” Isaiah 57:15
- God preserves His people from the schemes of satan. Psalms 7, 27, 31, 34, ….
- God has desire – “He has told you O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8
- God has the desire for us to learn love, for as God He has exemplified love – “Love God with all your heart, soul, and mind and love your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27
- God is the God of Hosts, as the Mighty One of Israel – God relieves Himself of His adversaries and avenues Himself of His foes. Isaiah 1:24
- God is Trustworthiness – “For the King trust in the Lord, and through the lovingkindness of the Most High he will not be shaken.” Psalms 21:7
- God is Peace – “The God of peace will soon crush satan under your feet, the grace of our Lord Jesus be with you. Romans 16:20

The script of the vision given on the 1st day of Abib.
“There are two altars; the bronze altar designed for sacrifice, while the golden altar designed for incense. The tabernacle’s bronze altar was placed in the courts where all can see, while the golden one stationed within the holy place. On the bronze altar, there is blood representing the cross. This, the place of atonement providing forgiveness. As we enter Passover, blood is all over the story.” Orna Grinman
Mildred Bean started us off with the blowing of the shofar and the declaration of Psalms 81:1-7
“Blow the trumpet at the new moon,
At the full moon, on our feast day.
4 For it is a statute for Israel,
An ordinance of the God of Jacob.
5 He established it for a testimony in Joseph
When he went throughout the land of Egypt.
I heard a language that I did not know:
6 “I relieved his shoulder of the burden,
His hands were freed from the basket.
7 “You called in trouble, and I rescued you;
I answered you in the hiding place of thunder;
I proved you at the waters of Meribah.”
Psalms 81: 1-7
“THE GATE OF VICTORY HAS BEEN OPENED!”
(God’s voice and actions, witnessed as the shofar sounded. The vision was given to Briskilla Zananiri)
God revealed and released His VICTORY into the nations, at the Head of this New Year (March 26th, known as the first of Abib).
The rushing waters of His testimony, within the River of Life, gushed forth. Within this gushing river was the sound of His Victory. He released victory, along with those who ride on heaven’s horses, engulfed and transformed in victory and authority. The strength and empowerment of His VICTORY witnessed, revealed His magnificent splendor and determination for His people to advance victoriously.
We receive the Victory of Heaven on earth, as this trumpet sound has witnessed and testified that You are the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. You are the Great I Am.
Father, the gate is now opened, and Your victory our testimony! The cross has been experienced, and the resurrected One is on the throne riding through the nations. Death has passed over us!
The Bride hears Your mighty name, The Great I am! We say, “King of Glory, come in!” King of Glory You are welcome to come in! King of Glory, we say, “We will ride with You!”
We speak over the United States of America, firstborn Israel, and the Body of Jesus Christ, saying, “Arise and ride with Him who is worthy to be praised, honored, and glorified. Arise and ride with the One whose name is Yeshua. Arise and ride with the champion of heaven and earth. Arise and ride with the One who is Almighty God!”
Almighty God of heaven and earth, heaven is Your throne, and earth Your footstool. It is to You we bow our hearts. We receive the sound of victory. You have released now on the first day of Abib.
Almighty God, we come before You covered in Your mercy and covered in Your grace. Concealed by Your blood and covered by Your name. You said, Your Glory covers the nations of the world. We yield to Your Glory and Your Holiness.
We yield to Your trumpet sound. We yield to Your direction and command. We arise as Your holy array-as Your army. You have assembled Your army today, on the first day of this New Year. We yield to the sound of Your Trumpet.”
God’s mysterious description of His own:
“Listen, My radiant one—
if you ever lose sight of Me,
just follow in My footsteps, where I lead My lovers.
Come with your burdens and cares.
Come to the place near the sanctuary of My shepherds.
9 My dearest one,
let Me tell you how I see you—
you are so thrilling to Me.
To gaze upon you is like looking
at one of Pharaoh’s finest horses—
a strong, regal steed pulling his royal chariot.
10 Your tender cheeks are aglow—
your earrings and gem-laden necklaces
set them ablaze.
11 We will enhance your beauty,
encircling you with our golden reins of love.
You will be marked with our redeeming grace.”
Song of Solomon 1: 8-11
“Do you give the horse his might?
Do you clothe his neck with a mane?
“Do you make him leap like the locust?
His majestic snorting is terrible.
“He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength;
He goes out to meet the weapons.
“He laughs at fear and is not dismayed;
And he does not turn back from the sword.
“The quiver rattles against him,
The flashing spear and javelin.
“With shaking and rage, he races over the ground,
And he does not stand still at the voice of the trumpet.
“As often as the trumpet sounds, he says, ‘Aha!’
And he scents the battle from afar,
And the thunder of the captains and the war cry.”
“Abba, this shofar which sounded in heaven echoed in our hearts. Abba, I ask You to help each one of us to open the gates. Open any closed gates inside of ourselves where we are struggling to hear the shofar, and let it echo inside of us. We speak to these gates and say, “Be lifted up that the King of Glory can enter in.”
We respond to the sound of the shofar inside us. Not just in our nation, we start inside of us. We say, “Come in King of Glory. Come in with Your Glory. Come in! And as You do that we know You want us to build inside of ourselves altars. One covered with blood, but we welcome You the Lamb that was slain. We welcome Your blood. We desire it. We believe in it. We look up to it. Cover us. Infuse us with Your blood.” Orna Grinman
“As you are allowing us to flow into the river of the sound of Your trumpet, that You would awaken Israel the firstborn son. Father, we are entering into the time of their deliverance. We ask and proclaim over this nation the sound of Your trumpet, the whistling of Zechariah 10:6-8. We call in the firstborn, the first fruit of the Kingdom of God. During this Passover, this would be a new season for every family under the Son. There would be a sound they would hear within their homes. Their children would exclaim to their parents, they have seen Messiah. Older men and women would dream, while younger men and women would see visions. Your sons and daughters to prophesy. Let this Passover be a new season for Israel and her people.
We call this also for all the peoples of the nations. All who are Your firstborns – those who have opened the wombs both natural and spiritual. We call Your firstborns back, Your prodigals. Almighty God, You ride. Your Trumpet Sound is moving. We honor Your voice. Help us honor Your voice.” briskilla zananiri
“When the sound of the shofar was being released, I was hearing a sound of the ‘casting of crowns” taking place in heaven to the One who sits on the throne – to the honor of the King.” Rania Sayegh
With much love,
Communion (The Bread & Wine of the New Covenant)
Transcription of conversation with Refaat & Nardin Benyamen (Egypt)
05 February 2020
“I am really touched a lot with what is happening in China. What I mean is the richness of what is happening through the prayers and communion shared among our Chinese family, in their homes, is God.
Two Floors and the Veil
You know heaven and earth are like two floors. The top floor being heaven and the lower floor, earth. This was the garden in the beginning. There was a ladder or a stair between them. When sin came, it “severed” the access to the stairs. We couldn’t see heaven. But praise God, now, through the cross of Jesus we now can.
“…a new living way consecrated by the veil which is His body.”
When He speaks here about, “a way,” He speaks of the way between earth and heaven being now open. The veil He is speaking about is the torn veil. So, the veil is cut from top to bottom, making the way for us to enter into the Holy of Holies.
The other part of this verse says, “this veil is His body.” So, if it is the torn veil, then it is the broken body. So, when we take the bread and we cut it from top to bottom, actually we are showing the way-the way God has made for us. When we participate in communion, we are actually making a way between heaven and earth at the point where we are. So, angels ascend and descend. Jesus made the way, by paying the penalty.
Communion, The law of Life vs. Law of Death
When we partake of Communion great things happen. For example, judgment will take place because Jesus died and paid the penalty. Let me explain. The accuser wants to stop us from receiving or eating from ‘Life’, the Tree of Life which is Jesus. When we plead the blood of Jesus, when we break the bread, we open the way to the Tree of Life principalities SEE again the cross. They see their defeat on the cross. They see the penalty paid, which has set God’s people free.
The example through the first Communion in Egypt
In one day, a whole nation participated in communion. A whole nation. Maybe they were 2 million strong or more? There was no priest known at the time. God said to them,
“Bring a lamb, have his blood. Put the blood on the outside door.
I will come and judge all the gods of Egypt.”
Think about it. There was death coming to kill all the firstborn, men and animals. This throughout ALL of Egypt; hence, it is true that the first communion/Passover for a nation occurred in Egypt.
When all the houses put the blood on the doors, something happened.
“For I will go through the land of Egypt on that night and will strike down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast, and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment. I am the LORD.”
The second part which I am amazed about is, “all the gods of Egypt.” Can you imagine? What power is this? It’s the power of the blood. Whatever gods that were in Egypt, God dealt with them.
The Power of the Blood in the Passover (New Testament communion):
Let’s think about the people of Israel as we talk about these false gods. Were the people of Israel living up to the standards of God? No. Were they normal people like all of us? Yes. Did they have a lot of sins at the time? Yes. Were they worshipping the gods of Egypt like the Egyptians? Yes
But when they [the children of Israel] put the blood on the door, even though they were not up to the standards of God, God came and made judgments over all of the gods of Egypt. The result was, a nation came out from death to life. They all, in the morning, exited from death to life.
Let me share another verse.
“For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.”
I Corinthians 11:26 NKJV
The word proclaiming in the Greek language is kataggellō, which means: to announce, declare, promulgate, make known, to proclaim publicly, publish. In some Arabic translations, it came with the meaning broadcast (like radio wave broadcast). Each time we take communion this happens.
The communion 🍷🥖 act will reveal life against death. Let me share about one of the meanings, Promulgate, Promulgate means: To Make A Law Public in Action or force.
We can read verse 26, “as often as (whenever) we eat the bread and drink the cup, we promulgate (put the results of the victory of the cross in action).
Let us think-visualize like this: having in our hands the bread, it is actually Jesus’ body. Jesus said, “this is My broken body”. When we do this, something in the atmosphere happens. When we participate in communion, principalities see the cross. They see their defeat on the cross. It puts the power of the life of God into action. We put in action the life against the power of death in the place we are doing the communion.
We know that blood is the life of an animal or the life of a man; in other words, life is in the blood (Leviticus17:14). So, the blood of Jesus is the life of God.
1- The sacrifice of Jesus 🥖🍷 on the cross
To the extent, you will remember that while Jesus hung on the cross and proclaimed, “It is finished!” It was at this point that Jesus died – His blood pouring down on earth. It was at this point that an earthquake happened. Due to the earthquake-the opening of the earth, His blood poured into the earth, and at the same moment, many people were raised from death. This is because life confronted death.
2- The sacrifice on the altar 🥖🍷 on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite (2 Samuel 24:16-25)
An Example of this is David and the Plague. David and the people of the land experienced a plague. It was very, very hard. People were dying from the disease. Then the prophet (Gad) went to him and said, “Go and make an altar for the sacrifice.” So, they went to the farm of Araunah to purchase his property, for the purpose of building an altar and making the sacrifice. They recognized that the angel stopped from continuing to kill. This consequence of sin was canceled due to the sacrifice, and the angel recognizing this sacrifice.
The threshing floor purchased and used for this sacrifice is the same location where many years later Jesus became our sacrifice and the same place where the temple of Solomon was built. So, having the sacrifice stopped the plague of death.
3- Moses and the Snakes/The serpent on the pole 🥖🍷 will bring life. Numbers 21:9
Remember the snake issue? The same happened with people who were really dead in sin. These, the people of God. Because of their choices, snakes came to bite them causing death. So, Moses made a bronze snake and raised it up and whoever looked upon it, he lived. This was a nation that had a disease, a disease of death.
The value and seal of an altar & sacrifice stay in the place revealing of the Two Floors:
Abraham many years earlier had built an altar, and on that altar, he brought a sacrifice. Around 60 years later or more Jacob, his grandson, passed by the same place. Jacob, at this time, was really afraid of being killed – afraid of death. When he came to that place of the altar, he fell asleep while resting his head on a rock. You know what, while sleeping Jacob saw the two floors. He saw that heaven and earth were still connected. Both of them were still connected with the ladder. Sixty years before the altar and sacrifice were raised, creating open heaven in this place, and sixty years later this reality had not changed. This is why Jacob could proclaim, “This is the house of the Lord.” He had learned from his father that in the first garden the houses were connected by a ladder. So, he saw it, and he said, Oh, this is the house of the Lord.
I believe with all my heart, and we have now hundreds of stories to testimonies here in Egypt; that where people here in Egypt (in their houses and in places of authority) proclaim two things while partaking of communion (1-forgive 2-bring down your good plan) …. Then Changes have begun to take place.
We really are priests. You know there is a Kingdom of priests. This Kingdom operates through the priesthood. So, we stand with our High Priest. Having in our hands the sacrifice 🥖🍷. The accuser comes and says, “You are sinners.” What do we do to receive cleansing? There is nothing to do but to repent. So, there are two actions or prayers we bring to God as we take Communion.
FIRST: We ask forgiveness. We Repent
This is what they have started to do in China now. So, it needs a number of people in the nation, it’s not all the people, it’s the priests that can stand for the nation. So, we cry, “Forgive our sins.” Not only our own sins but, “Forgive the sins of the governments, forgive the sins of our people who are doing wrong.” “Forgive these people because You love all people.” “Your blood paid all the penalties. So, Lord will You have mercy over us and forgive us for our sins as nation or city or family….” This will take away what the accuser had in his hands.
SECOND: We ask to have our Father good planes
We ask our Father: bring the plans You have created for us. Release them from the top floor (heaven) to the first floor (earth), for Christ Jesus has paid the penalty, so
‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’ Luke 18:3 NKJV
We would ask, there are great plans on Your heart for our cities, there are great plans in Your heart for our families, there are great plans for our street, our offices. So, we need Your great plan to come on earth as it is in heaven.
“The Sprinkling of Nations”
In Isaiah 52:11 – 15 (Amplified), Through a prophecy given to Isaiah, it speaks about Jesus and His accomplished work of being the sacrifice. He died and was not known as a beautiful man according to earthly standards. This, one of the causes of the astonishment of the spiritual rulers of the day. They questioned saying, “What is going on? We thought we had succeeded in killing him”.
“Behold, My servant will prosper,
He will be high and lifted up and greatly exalted.
Just as many were astonished at you, My people,
So, His appearance was marred more than any man
And His form more than the sons of men.
Thus, He will sprinkle many nations,
Kings will shut their mouths on account of Him;
For what had not been told them they will see,
And what they had not heard they will understand.”
The scripture says, regarding the principalities in the air that are over nations (the evil spirits), “they shut up their mouths.” Their accusations stopped. They couldn’t speak because they saw something they never imagined would happen, which was the blood that sprinkles nations. Life of God sprinkled against death. Can blood sprinkle nations? Yes, in this chapter in Isaiah 52, the last verse says, “blood sprinkles nations”.
Along with this, in Hebrews 12:24 (it’s amazing) it says that the thing that speaks is the blood, the sprinkling blood that speaks. Yes, it speaks to silent, shut up the mouths of principalities of darkness over the Nations.
“But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel.”
Hebrews 12: 22-24
God the Father, our Judge, is present in this scripture (court setting); along with Jesus Christ (mediator, advocate), the church (both in heaven and on earth), and the angels. It is amazing that in this court, the “thing” which God reveals is speaking in this setting is the Blood. “the sprinkling blood that speaks.
I’m really happy we are here with our community together. My wife and I do communion every day together like many others. We experience a lot of situations where life is brought to death. We have witnessed so much that we could never have imagined. Thank You, Lord, for the blood of Jesus.
In and Outside of Time We are Not Alone
When we participate in communion we are not alone. The Bible says we are all one body because we all share in the one bread. The one bread is Jesus. So, when we come to communion, we are not alone. Even if I am with my wife alone in a room, we are with all the church around all the world, and together with all the generations. How? Because there is only One Body-bread, Jesus.
If we go out of time and look, it is one bread that the church; coming from all the generations and from everywhere, are eating from the same bread. So, when we partake in communion now, we are not alone. It is one church partaking of communion. The bread and the wine.
“For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.”
I Corinthians 10:17 NKJV”
As China confronts the Coronavirus
In dialogue, our focus now turned to China. It was a beautiful time of fellowship with a few of our friends there. Hearing from the heart of the people; after which, they told us that Psalms 30 has become very important to them as a guide into prayer over their nation at this time of confronting the coronavirus.
Lord, You Have Healed Me
“Lord, I will exalt you and lift you high,
for you have lifted me up on high!
Over all my boasting, gloating enemies,
you made me to triumph.
2 O Lord, my healing God,
I cried out for a miracle and you healed me!
3 You brought me back from the brink of death,
from the depths below.
Now here I am, alive and well, fully restored!
4 O sing and make melody, you steadfast lovers of God.
Give thanks to him every time you reflect on his holiness!
5 I’ve learned that his anger lasts for a moment,
but his loving favor lasts a lifetime![a]
We may weep through the night,
but at daybreak it will turn into shouts of ecstatic joy.
6–7 I remember boasting, “I’ve got it made!
Nothing can stop me now!
I’m God’s favored one; he’s made me steady as a mountain!”
But then suddenly, you hid your face from me.
I was panic-stricken and became depressed.
8 Still I cried out to you, Lord God. I shouted out for mercy, saying,
9 “What would you gain in my death,
if I were to go down to the depths of darkness?
Will a grave sing your song?
How could death’s dust declare your faithfulness?”
10 So hear me now, Lord; show me your famous mercy.
O God, be my Savior and rescue me!
11 Then he broke through and transformed all my wailing
into a whirling dance of ecstatic praise!
He has torn the veil and lifted from me
the sad heaviness of mourning.
He wrapped me in the glory garments of gladness.
12 How could I be silent when it’s time to praise you?
Now my heart sings out loud, bursting with joy—
a bliss inside that keeps me singing,
“I can never thank you enough!”
Words of Life for China
1. We are praying in Egypt. We are in covenant with China.
We pray and declare now: From this difficult time in China now, Life will Come!! Life will overcome death! Life on the Cross overcame death. We proclaim that in Wuhan, in all of China, and even on the whole earth, Jesus’ body was broken for us. It is His body that took our sickness and disease, which is the fruit of our sins.
2. We join with our family in China. It is You Jesus standing as High Priest.
We enter into the throne of mercy and grace. We enter boldly declaring this is the torn veil. We enter the Tree of Life through the new and living way. This bread, the broken body. Through it we enter the Holy of Holies, seeking for the River of Life to come forth into this situation. This, the Bread, is the body of Christ broken for me, my family. For Wuhan, the city where this virus is spreading from. Christ’s body was been broken for them. Believing that the blood of Jesus will sprinkle the nations.
3. Father, I want to thank You for the Blood of the Lamb. Thank You for Your blood of the Lamb, this the blood of Your Son. This is the blood that is full of Your life. Thank You that Your blood speaks of life and forgiveness. Thank You that we have life. We lift the wine/blood upon the doors of Wuhan and China.
We proclaim life and forgiveness on their behalf. We trust in the power of your life today as we come together. We call for life and asking for a plum line between life and death. You told us, Lord, that whoever eats of Your flesh and drinks of Your blood that we abide in You and You abide in us. We ask for the Life of God. Thank You that You are Alive. You are Alive. You are Alive. You are Alive. And Because You are alive we are alive. We bless you, God.
We Thank You for Your holiness. We come today as You have stretched Your arm on the cross and we come to Your bosom and believe we have resurrection life in You. We proclaim this cup is the new covenant by the blood of Jesus. We have the boldness to come before the holy of holiness because of the blood of Jesus Christ.
This is the blood that was poured for my life and for the life of china, and for all the families. This blood is sprinkled, Lord, on me, on my family, on China, on Egypt, on the United States of America, on all families of the world.
And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth
and under the earth and on the sea,
and all things in them, I heard saying,
“To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb,
be blessing and honor and glory and dominion
forever and ever.”
4. We speak Life! Life! Life! Life! Life! Life! Life! from the Blood of Jesus over China.
5. Your blood speaks a better word. We declare over Wuhan and over China that Your cross has been raised over Wuhan and over China. Your Cross has been established with Wuhan and within China.
6. Even as the snake was raised in the desert and brought healing to those who looked upon Him. Your Son of righteousness was raised on our behalf. We receive that for Wuhan and for China. The one who died and rose. The Mighty champion who is Al Gabor. The one who rides on the white horse. You are our Dread Champion.
As you gather daily, breaking bread, judgments are passing against the strongholds/gods every day.
7. I saw one week ago, Wuhan will become a large house of Prayer, and worship will go out of this city to the entire world.
8. Ruth, You are a woman granted with authority, endowing you with faith. The Lord has given you the authority to speak a word over your city, and He will do as you command. A trumpet is being released for you to declare, and the words coming from the trumpet are full of an active life – living words.
9. You will be like a wise man in the city, saving the entire city. As a priest, God will use you.
10. I remembered the sons of Korah when they were cursed and the earth swallowed them. Their offspring, years later, were in the temple praising God. Out of judgment and out of a blessing will arise.
All authority to the Lamb of God
All wealth to the Lamb of God
All Power to the Lamb of God
All Honor to the Lamb of God
All Blessing to the Lamb of God
Take Your place Lord in Your city of Wuhan and China.
Move-in the city. Let the angels activate in the city now.
In the name of Jesus above all other names.
Word: You will be called a “City of Light!”
The teachings of Communion were given through Refaat.

“In the afterglow of the Superbowl win.”
Yesterday morning I came across a scripture posted by a friend. She recognized the importance of the Palindrome number sequence (02-02-2020) but went deeper hearing from the Lord, giving the depth of the message. In fact, there are four messages recognized – sums coming together creating a portion of the whole.
Now that the “field-game” of numbers is before us, let’s ask the Creator of all numbers what moves He drew into His game-book. Not through formulated definitions of numbers; instead, turning to seek Him face to face. Let’s not miss out on the One who is the center of the story. Remember numbers, as fun & permitted as they are, do not substitute the face to face relationship with Jesus. Remember, symbols and their definitions should be different for each of us, for we are all uniquely made.
The Parts of the whole:
1. The message experientially given to my family at the beginning of the Hebrew Year (April 2019) to carry into this new era of time is, “Choose Life or Death” – Jesus is Life and the Glory expressed within God’s resurrection power.
2. Martha Ray Dean posted the drawing of the two hands below. Knowing it carried meaning I kept asking Papa. (We do not know the creator of this piece yet.)
3. L. Brook’s posting carried the scripture, sculpting the invitation given to us.
4. Jonathan and Jolene Hamil were given the action phrase, “Quick Turnaround.” This involves God’s hand of Grace and the sound of His gavel coming down with God’s edict being announced.” (to learn more about these visit https://jonandjolene.us/prophesy-victory-2020-turnaround-call-tonight/ )
L. Harlow, their friend, encountered the angel of “rapid turnaround” on 12-11-2020 in preparation for 12-12-2020.
Now for my ponderings of The INVITATION:
“See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; … I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, …” Deuteronomy 30: 15, 19
I’d like to amplify this a little bit. Scripture speaks better than I, so I’ll just leave this here.
“See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; in that, I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the Lord your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it. “But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it. “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
God has placed a feather pen in each of our hands? He, The Chief Cornerstone is available to impact influencing the building of our earthly and heavenly home (one impacts the other). He has given us the invitation to scribe with the pen of a ready writer, the outcome through actions enabled through the oil of the Secret Place. God’s plan – the vision which has been written will now, through our actions, come to pass. His help will be supernatural for all of us, for He is Supernatural-ness! Habakuk 2:2 and Psalms 45:1.
The Key for the Turnaround:
God is ready to heal us, endowing us with the trust and faith necessary to finish the race unto life – the accomplishing of the work found within our written scrolls. The Chief Cornerstone has readied us. He is simply petitioning us to ask Him to reign down upon us the Spirit of Repentance. This gift of repentance seals the work of the Cross of Christ, turning our attention back to our first love. Quick and Deep repentance makes room for the cleansing of our fields from all previous mishaps; works of disobedience – dead works, thus launching us into the quick turnaround into the fields of possessing the fields of promise.
Our encounter with Death
I myself have come face to face with the spirit of death on April 20th, 2019. This spirit was looking for a “trespass zone” to enter & engage our family line, with seemingly enticing future scenarios. We were fighting for Emil’s life. With no breath left in me, I cried out to the Lord for help declaring, “The Spirit of Life is invited to dwell in our home, and death you have no place. You are defeated by Christ, He who is the Spirit of Life. In Jesus’ name be gone.” My family is witness to two of our members experiencing resurrection power. God is real, alive, and is your and our defense. His defense mechanism is that He is Life, and nothing of darkness & death can remain in the Light of Resurrection life.
Folks, we all have been taught through scripture that life and death are found in the power of the tongue. Any comment made – any decision pondered, if the outcome does not testify of Christ’s finished character and work of life, then maybe it is time to reconsider the decision. Today, let the divide take place – choose life.
Let the feather pen of the Chief Cornerstone – The Ancient of Days assist us in writing & walking out His best for us in 2020 and Beyond. Within the 2 options let’s choose life.
“See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; … I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, …” Deuteronomy 30: 15, 19
“Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’” Jeremiah 33:3
‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. ‘You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. ‘I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you.” Je 29:11–14
“In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.” John 1:4
The initial Word from the Holy Spirit given on January 6th, 2020
Given to P. Zananiri
Released on January 7th, 2020 via Communion Page (the bread and wine of the new covenant)
The Lord began to speak to me.
“No nation is meant to continue to carry the brunt of WW2 and it’s pride-filled racisms. What would it take for the true God-given identity of Persia to return to her? No longer titled the 1935 name change (Iran), but take a name intended to release blessing. The curse of the name of Iran will be broken and Persia’s true name will return. Elam, you are remembered.
Even as Germany has repented, been forgiven, been re-mantled, and is experiencing transformation among the remnant under God; so too, Persia’s jewel of a people will be set free to LIVE in freedom.
Persia’s transformational identity emerged through the work of Queen Esther and her King-husband. Through the work of Cyrus and Darius. The work of Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, and the prophets. Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. The blessing of Persia was that the kings assisted Israel in returning to their land to rebuild and prosper. They were released with all that was needed to rebuild the city and temple of the Lord, with no hindrances from the government of Persia.
There is an invitation for the body of Christ and Israel to turn her face towards Persia and speak blessings of life, acknowledging God’s opinion of her. Even as she gave life to Israel, it is time to return the blessing to the people of the land.
The transformational and resurrected identity of Persia will take place. This will take place through the millions who have currently come to know the Lord in Persia. The present-day identity amidst the current move of God will release the Glory of God-honoring Father God, His Son-King, and Holy Spirit. I see a great light come out from the midst of Persia. This light is the light of God within His family in the nation. They will shine so brightly that Persia will be known through them. Her identity will shine forth.
I was shown so much joy in this land, once known as Elam and Persia. There was freedom in government, society, and mountains of influence. The nation was covered in a brilliant and healing Light of God. Beautiful colors, Beautiful peoples, Beautiful activities, Beautiful land of healing.
We speak the identity of Persia to come alive again. You Persia whose name means splendid and pure.”
“Sing to God,
O kingdoms of the earth,
Sing praises to the Lord,
To Him who rides upon the highest heavens,
which are from ancient times;
Behold, He speaks forth with His voice,
a mighty voice.”
Usually, these writings are expressions and declarations that are meant for the airwaves over nations (or the circumstance). Feel free to take a look and see if there is anything within these pages, written over the last couple of days, which can be confirmations to you or added revelation for your considerations.
We all know priests go before the people. So, anything personal is meant to be healing and encouraging.
We are in days of entering the groanings and victories of God through the rest of His Dread Champion, depicted for us in Hebrews 4.
Courage is found in Him – Declarations are made with Him as we watch with Him upon the balconies of heaven. And, oh, what a secure location His balcony is.
One drop of the blood of Jesus upon the cross, dear friends, was enough.
Enjoy, and I pray you are blessed.
An encounter taking place now
For two years now, there seems to be a marked encounter poised for present-day generations. This encounter will be known as “The spirit of nations bowing to the Spirit and Voice of Father.” We, too, will mark it as the awakening within us of “The Spirit and Voice of God as Father.” He desires to reveal Himself for anyone to witness and experience, taking heed to Him as Father and final say over nations.
It is Father who sent forth His Son into the world. John 3:16
As Father and Judge of nations, His unfailing omnipresence places us within Him. Sounding through the airwaves is His invitation beckoning us to yield to the will of His heart. Because of His persistence, the eyes of our hearts are opening and experiencing His opinion as Father.
We are recognizing and putting into words the fact that His heart’s motive is due to the holiness of His name. The jealous love He contains for His people, has chosen us to be the exemplifiers of this, His identity. His joy is to witness such a transformation, the outcome given those who wish to honor His name. It is time to arise and shine.
One breath of God shakes the earth, can we imagine the effects of His voice? His written will testifies of nations becoming whole, and once acted upon, we will see the kingdoms of this world to become the Kingdom of our Lord and Christ.
In great anticipation, scribes are waiting ready to transcribe the result of a nation’s response to such love, holiness, judgment, and awe. Many are hearing the sounds of the foundations of nations longing for the “Yes” of humanity. The spirit of a nation knows of the fortitude available once a people say, “yes.” Yes, the earth groans for the revealing of the sons of God.
With such awaiting, one can also hear the sounds of the rivaling insecurities, anger found in the opposition, pains within the misunderstandings of wounded hearts yet not made whole, the foolishness of platforms of the unwise… the list goes on. All of this, the manifestations of the demonic shaking due to the vibrations of God’s voice and humanity’s voluntary agreement. Victorious hope is that God is whom He says He is. The Great I AM, yes, He who in six days of creativity displayed His finished masterpieces of galaxies, heavens, earth, and all that is within them. It is He who is speaking, and we are the yielded hearers.
“Why are the nations in an uproar
And the peoples devising a vain thing?
The kings of the earth take their stand
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
“Let us tear their fetters apart
And cast away their cords from us!”
He who sits in the heavens laughs,
The Lord scoffs at them.
Connie Wilson, a woman of God, said to me recently, “The thing that keeps “quaking “and “shaking” me is the reality of the fear of God, which our society seems to have lost. He will not be mocked.”
Reverberating rightly, many would quickly reply to her, “Yes, we have encountered the gift of the fear and awe of our God also.” Many are watching and repenting, praying, and rejoicing as they hear His opinion taking over the airwaves of nations.
And with the silencing of chaotic void and vain intentions, houses are coming into order. For when Father shows up, alignment is demanded; expected, without one word spoken. He is Dad.
As we all watch and pray over the United States and for other appointed nations, Connie shared with me Proverbs 26: 21-26
“Like charcoal to hot embers and wood to fire,
So is a contentious man to kindle strife.
The words of a whisperer (gossip) are like dainty morsels [to be greedily eaten];
They go down into the innermost chambers of the body [to be remembered and mused upon].
Like a [common] clay vessel covered with the silver dross [making it appear silver when it has no real value]
Are burning lips [murmuring manipulative words] and a wicked heart.
He who hates disguises it with his lips,
But he stores up deceit in his heart.
When he speaks graciously and kindly [to conceal his malice], do not trust him,
For seven abominations are in his heart.
Though his hatred covers itself with guile and deceit,
His malevolence will be revealed openly before the assembly.”
She then brought my attention to the 7 abominations in God’s eyes.
- A proud look [the attitude that makes one overestimate oneself and discount others],
- A lying tongue,
- And hands that shed innocent blood,
- A heart that creates wicked plans,
- Feet that run swiftly to evil,
- A false witness who breathes out lies [even half-truths],
- And one who spreads discord (rumors)
Connie’s friend has been declaring this over those bowing into such abominations.
- The fear of the Living God will fall on them.
- Your sins are forgiven, and satan’s slime will be off of them.
- All chaos and confusion will go back into the camps of hell.
- All of the citizens of the USA will see.
My response to her was simple. “One drop of the blood of Jesus will destroy all of this.” Yes, As Father spoke to me more then 18 months ago, “One drop of My Son’s blood is more powerful and louder than all of the blood spilled unjustly.”
As the River of God’s Government visits a nation, the spirit of a nation will respond:
You and I already know, dear friends of God, that when He speaks, governments will be required to respond to His voice. The evil ways, amidst His Light, will be exposed and confounded. Darkness cannot remain where there is Light. The pride of leaders must bow. I heard the spirit of one nation respond declaring,
“Almighty God of Heaven and Earth,
come rule over us in the power of Your Government.
We bow before You, O God.
Come and rule over us.
We bow to You O Government of God.
Come rule over us.”
This language astounded me while He visited in September 2014. We know of leaders and parliaments operating in authority, but there is something deeper going on here. It is the spirit of a nation which God is in communication with. For it is God who births nations, assigning them to carry His Governmental systems. Merely saying this, it draws one to the awe of the magnitude of God and His ways.
Have you ever noticed how He deals with governments different then He does with the peoples of the land? Leadership has a God established prerequisite to abide by. Governments were intended for the safety and well-being of the nation’s peoples. Governments were appointed to heed to God and His governing. His structures applied.
We are amid the ending of this second decade within the new millennia.
At this juncture, it would be good to take a glimpse at a topic that continues to surface. Let’s ponder for a moment.
Is there an either/or in defending of nations and honoring God’s name
Many causes, organizations, and ministries with the intent to “stand up” for a people group, rightly seek to defend those who sense and/or experience rejection, hatred, and danger against themselves and their race. Their determination to implement the measuring line of justice carries with it a righteous motive.
His voice, the solution:
The question is this. As the new decade within this millennium is approached, could it be that one must consider a transformation within the “how” of accomplishing such a feat? Could it be that God is on a different path, possibly ours running parallel to His? Could it be that if we as a people stand up for the name of God as we yield to the sound of God, that we will find ourselves first broken, humbled, empowered, and melting in love with Him? As a direct result, could it be that we will also fall in love with all of creation? For it is in the moment of such an encounter that God’s emotions infuse ours – we then love.
Yes, as Father speaks, the spirit of the nation will yield to its Maker and will cry out for humanity to change. The earth will groan for the revealing of the son of God. They are longing for those who will exemplify the ways of His throne.
Exposure for the healing:
Connie said to me, “We are watching the ‘mantra’ that has been on me for the last two years: “Everything that is covered over is being uncovered, and everything hidden is being revealed.” God is shaking our nation, and the church better wake up to recognize what is happening.” I couldn’t agree more. First for myself, and second for the nation.
No longer a prophecy, we are in the days of:
January 1, 2017, Holy Spirit spoke, informing me that the Awe of God is returning to dwell within our nations. His identity – His name will become a priority. The ripple effect to our yielding would be the adhering and becoming due to the greatness of His “I Am.” Thereby sending a reverberation of joy and hope within our nation like never before. Yes, like never before. Yes, Face to face, Spirit to spirit, even as Deep calls unto deep.
Taken into a vision while writing:
Those who will yield will be (one moment, as I am writing now, He has me over Saudi Arabia) drawn up and out of the evil mire of the Babylonian spirit and system. I can see the deserts of Arabia, and I am being shown large hands coming and separating the nation ‘like dough’ would be lifted and divided. Saudi Arabia is the Lord’s. This is what I am hearing. “Even as Abraham took Ishmael, circumcising him with all of his manservants, so too now, God is circumcising Saudi Arabia. He is saying to me, as the oil crisis is expanding within Saudi Arabia, there is a higher cause. This is the Lord circumcising the nation, preparing him (Saudi) to bring him to Himself. Saudi Arabia belongs to the Lord.”
The dividing of nations:
The dividing from within countries is before us,
unto our God and unto His Lamb.
The Splendor and Majesty of who You are, Almighty God.
As the Awe of God visits, we will choose to drink of His water and wine and eat of His bread; and in so doing, we will remember the name of the Lord our God. Let’s recall that it is the Lord who said He will respond to our prayers – rescue a nation because of the sake of His name (Ezekiel 36). He said this to Israel, He has said this for all nations who yield.
Cause and Affect:
When we have dishonored His name and all that His name is, how can we expect unity to dwell among the ethnos? For every ethnos created bears a representation of His name. To honor His name is to love Him. To love Him is to fear Him. To fear Him is to love. To love is to walk in love. To love is to walk in His ways – those ways in which the sound of His names echo.
Healing is on His way.
Nations will come running to God’s Lights emanating from us. The Light – His Son will shine through us as we once again honor the name of His Father, our Father. He has required this of Israel, and so too of us His eternal family. Isaiah taught us this through what we call his 55th chapter.
Isaiah 55:5 says that at that time,
“Look! You will summon nations you’ve never heard of.
Nations who have never heard of you
will come running to follow you
because Yahweh, your God, the Holy One of Israel,
has glorified you!?
Isaiah 55:6 teaches us the ways of drawing near.
“Seek the Lord Yahweh when He makes Himself approachable;
call upon Him when you sense He is near.”
And in so doing, maybe, the invitation will reach those who operate in wickedness, and they accept to be delivered from such torment and turn to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
“The wicked need to abandon their ways,
and sinful ones need to banish every evil thought.
Let them return to Yahweh,
and they will experience his compassionate mercy.
Yes, let them return to God,
for he will lavish forgiveness upon them.
“For my thoughts about mercy are not like your thoughts,
and my ways are different from yours.
As high as the heavens are above the earth,
so, my ways and my thoughts are higher than yours.”
For what is taking place now around the world, Isaiah 55 is a powerful portion of scripture to consider. This scripture illustrates the “how-to” of the drawing of nations to the Lord, and the nations bearing the name of God. He says through Joel,
The Lord utters His voice before His army;
Surely His camp is very great,
For strong is he who carries out His word.
The day of the Lord is indeed great and very awesome,
And who can endure it?
“Yet even now,” declares the Lord,
“Return to Me with all your heart,
He revealed to us His ways through David. This for nations and people.
“The Lord also thundered in the heavens,
And the Most High uttered His voice,
Hailstones and coals of fire.
He sent out His arrows, and scattered them,
And lightning flashes in abundance and routed them.
Then the channels of water appeared,
And the foundations of the world were laid bare
At Your rebuke, O Lord,
At the blast of the breath of Your nostrils.
He sent from on high, He took me;
He drew me out of many waters.
He delivered me from my strong enemy,
And from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me.
They confronted me in the day of my calamity,
But the Lord was my stay.
He brought me forth also into a broad place;
He rescued me because He delighted in me.”
All of this to say this. The healing of nations is the returning to the hearing, honoring, and adhering to the sound voice of the name of the Holy name of God. Lord, here we are. We yield – Help our hearts to yield.
