“As they were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed Him. And two blind men sitting by the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried out, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” The crowd sternly told them to be quiet, but they cried out all the more, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” And Jesus stopped and called them, and said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” They *said to Him, “Lord, we want our eyes to be opened.” Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes; and immediately they regained their sight and followed Him.” Matthew 20:29-34
Prophetic watchmen/intercessor talk….
One of my dear friends and I were on skype talking about the gift and power of compassion. The definition of compassion is, “a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.”
In Colossians 3:12 we are instructed to, “So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion…” Defined here compassion means the same, “to be sympathetic” in the sense of grief or sorrow, but also in that of the sympathy which is ready to help.””
Sounds like a prayer life infused with compassion would possibly carry the sounds of deep unspeakable groaning as one cries out to God for the healing, deliverance, and rescue of those in need.
Just some thoughts: When we pray for one who is sick, are we reaching the point in our emotions which the parents of that sick child carry–do we reach their desperation point? More so are we experiencing Christ’s deep longing for His healing to be received? When a multitude of humanity is being slaughtered before our very eyes (we witness the effects thru media or in person) do we enter into the desperate sorrow and strong desire to alleviate the sufferings through prayer and actions, by the strength and victory of God’s resurrection power?
Jesus did. In Isaiah 42, Isaiah shares with us that Jesus the Warrior, travailed like a woman in labor releasing (birthing) salvation to the earth. He has granted us the grace to travail to the point of breakthrough; taking hold of the dominion we were given–taking hold of the ingredients of the Kingdom of God and releasing them into the need at hand.
God is not neglecting the earth and the people on the earth. He has given us dominion and instructed us to, ” σπλαγχνίζομαι splagchnizomai” to be moved with compassion, from within our inner part:our womb–the place of birthing, our kidneys–the seat of our emotions , our lungs–the breath used to release life sound (σπλάγχνον splagchnon).
This is the season of the warrior. The strength and sound of a warrior is often primal in nature. A compassionate warrior moves in determination, deep reliance on the power of the Cross and Christ’s resurrection, boldness, fearless courage in the face of darkness, joyful in giving life and motivated by the love of God and sees himself as a defender of mankind.
Happy Day to you O’ Warrior of Compassion!
Father, we prayover the borders of nations. We ask for HEAVEN”S SHIELDS to lock together surrounding our nations. Let the vibration of these shields fill the hearts and minds of immigrants who are finding refuge within our lands. For the shields of the earth belong to You, God. Release Your mercy and cleanse any shields which we have defiled.
We bless each sojourner with the message of these shields. As they pass through the shields into our land arrest them with Your love, might, and awe.
To you sojourner of lands foreign to you:
These shields are your help.
Receive God your rock and salvation.
He will surround you with favor, as you walk upright in heart. (Help America walk upright in heart, Lord.)
Receive our hospitality, He will lift your head.
Get up and take hold of His help, recognize your deliverance.
Receive Christ as righteous King, healing will be your bread.
Bend your heart to God, you will find trust again.
Receive hope for your future.
Recognize your place of refuge.
Receive and walk in peace.
Find comfort in justice.
You have come to your hiding place, rest under His wing.
(All descriptions of shields found in the bible. Deuteronomy, 1&2 Samuel, 1&2 Kings, Psalms, Proverbs)
We love you,
He showed me the streets of France filled with blood, but this blood was the sacrificed blood of Jesus Christ. I believe Jesus is saying, “I have purchased France. France belongs to Me.”
I then saw and bottle of wine tipping over, and the wine was filling the streets. He then showed me the most beautiful white out of the ordinary sized dove hovering over the wine that was spilt on the streets of France. I believe that the Lord wants us to invite France to invite the Dove of the Holy Spirit to come into France.
Father we speak over France that from the point of her brokenness from the place of her bowing down, O Lord, that the church of France will arise and welcome You in.
Father we bless France and we decree over France that, ” You have been purchased with the blood of Jesus Christ, the One and Only True God, the One and Only True Messiah.” We prophesy over France now and say, “You will know a revival like you have not known before. You will know an awakening that you have not tasted of yet. But stand up, pick up the cup, and drink of the wine of the Holy Spirit.”
“Holy Dove, we see Your beauty and we see Your hunger, and we see Your desire for the nations. And as You hover now, oh Holy One, we ask that You would fly over the nation of France and abolish what is evil; bringing forth in the nation Your design and desire for France.”
Thoughts regarding France, USA, and beyond…. to believers world wide. As believers, if we have not reached out to our neighbors as neighbor and evangelizer we have not done our job. The great commission was established intentionally. Father has assisted us greatly. How? He relocated the Great Harvest to our backyard. Every religious belief system rejecting the Son of God…..all in our backyard and waiting. Social media racism and “eye for eye” rantings will not win us rewards in eternity. As human beings hungry for God and His nearness, we will find Him waiting at the door of our neighbor’s house. Why dont we go help Him in? We can actually help open the door for Him to come in. What a memorable moment that would be for our “neighbors.”
France, Lebanon, Canada, California, Iraq, Germany, Jordan, Syria doesn’t need our conversationalist rantings. They are about to experience a great move of God … and some already are.
How do I know? Because Isaiah the prophet said, at the time of great darkness we will shine as a great light and during that time the Middle Eastern nations will come into the house of God and strengthen the Body of Christ (paraphrased).
Apparently the great harvest isn’t looking like many expected. LOOK! Stop being afraid. This is what you went to Bible School for. This is why you gave your life to 24/7 prayer. This is why you were ordained. This is why you were determined to learn the language of the marketplace. This is why you wanted a passport. This is why you established a 501c3. This is why you learned the 4 spiritual laws. This is why you spent thousands of dollars and as many hours traveling through your nation passionately carrying out prophetic acts. This is the answer to your question, “God, what is my next step.” I promise.
Stop bashing the nations who are lost in darkness and BE THE LIGHT!!!! Stop Muslim bashing. They are your love assignment. Get your boots on and start working in the fields.
You feel fear? Well, that’s the personal and corporate terror that satan is traumatizing the harvest with. Get above that and battle using the great commission as your motivational tool of choice.
Be careful, do not get caught up in the world system of argument. When Joshua was about to face the enemy, the angel of the Lord came and stood in front of him. Joshua, the powerful most courageous warrior of his time asked, “Are you for us or for our adversaries?” The reply he received wasn’t the one he expected.
The heavenly being, who was the Captain of the Lord’s army said, “No; rather I indeed come now as captain of the host of the Lord.” Joshua’s courageous response was right. He FELL ON HIS FACE to the earth, and bowed down, and said to him, “What has my lord to say to his servant?”
FOLKS WE WILL NOT HEAR THE STRATEGIES OF HEAVEN until we realize this earth belongs to God and His heart, His character, His ways, and His perspective is what is needed. He gave us dominion. Dominion given came with the privilege of presenting the earth back to Creator healed and beautiful.
Our first posture is to get on our faces UNTIL He speaks. Yes, we like the social interactions, specially during times of tragedy. That’s a good thing. Tragedy–pain pulls us together, even as celebrations do. But, if we want to be leaders–generals–servants–effective humans, we must find our self flat on our faces in times when we do not have the right answer. In times when the enemy is hot on our tail with one desire, with the evil intention to annihilate nations known for freedom and beauty, we must encounter God for strategy.
Once we bow our hearts to the ground, positioning our hearts higher than our minds, then and only then will the captain of heavens hosts reply and say, “Remove your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.” It is only at this point that God will allow His unadulterated, true, clear words to be spoken. It is from this posture that He will give direction for a victory.
Folks we need a clear trumpet call. It will not be mixed with tradition, racism, hate, vile language, political spirits and preferences. You want to be a prophetic voice? Well, than get under the tent of the Lord and listen. Facebook, Periscope, Instagram, Google, Twitter, webinars can wait. Truth can wait for the clean clear vessel. Empty rhetoric can not.
We have entered the times of the Great Harvest. Courageously participate!

GPS instructions are not foolproof, and on June 9th this was no exception… or was it? Instead of the most direct route, “waze” chose a path through neighborhoods, flood regions–inconvenient pathways. This was unique because oftentimes “waze” will go out of its way to guide me away from traffic, construction, blocked roads, etc. Well, this time — NOT.
Very quickly, the presence of Holy Spirit was experienced. He was highlighting something–I perked up. GPS chose DOVE RD. Unknowingly, this is the road that was and still is flooded. Papa knew how to grab my attention. He knew speaking using the symbolism of “The Dove” would work for His Arab stubborn daughter.
The river had overflowed it’s banks and was flooding onto Dove Road. What He spoke of years ago, through Bob Jones, Bobby Connor, Chuck Pierce, and others was about to launch.
Summer and Fall of 2012, Holy Spirit began to speak into my heart about the preparation for a “move of God” which was taking place in this region. Holy Spirit was about to be welcomed and received in this area. Since that time, it has been clear that preparation of heart, foundation of faith faithfully taught, ministries built in right standing with the Lord and man, communion with God, and obedience to His leading were steps taken in preparation for receiving God’s visitation.
This flood is a sign of the nearness of time. He was preparing the land. There is going to be a move of the Spirit (Dove) which will signify that the “Sun” is shining in Texas again, and that the unseen darkness previously here has lifted.
It’s time to “wade in the water.”
There will be a move of the Spirit which will birth many into the younger generation of believers. Oaks of Righteousness will be refreshed and on their way to shining like the noon day sun — planted in the River of the Holy Spirit (Psalms 1 and Revelations 22).
There will be a resurgence of Justice; freedom received for a supernatural life of Holy Spirit, lightheartedness, peace, righteousness. With justice and her benefits, God’s people will not be easily moved as the times we live in grow darker. For we are called to release His LIGHT – He whom is brighter than the noonday sun. This move will reawaken, reunite the family of the King.
Father Claus* said, “Obedience is the greatest honor in heaven and on earth, therefore you must strive to be obedient to one another. Peace is certainly in God, for God is peace.” Well, if this is true, and it is, what are some of the commandments God implemented, expecting us to adhere to, towards each other?
That, my friend, can be your quest for the day….Ponder, choose, act, write, be amazed and forever changed. And in the meantime, ask God how you can prepare and be part of the movement He is releasing in Texas.

ps. @ Wordpress blog http://www.visualeast.org , the poem,”Storms, Floods, and the Response” can be found (thoughts regarding what the month of May storms really were. BUT this post will focus on Southlake and the surrounding regions of Texas.)
If your region has experienced the storms of 2015, if you havent already please consider meditating on passages such as Psalms 18, 50, 68, 85, 99, 104, 114, 144. God can be found in the storm.

Some call it, “bored.”
Some call it, “lonely.”
The wounded might call it, “forgotten.”
EEeeekkkk, left out???
You know that feeling when you don’t know what to do next–hands free? Surprisingly or not, you have time on your hands. Yes, the feel of a little or alot uncomfortable. You “look” around and have a momentary silent panic, “OH MY GOSH, I’M ALONE–EXCITED or is it sadness? Heck, am I FORGOTTEN??!!” “Did the party go on without me! !?!!” “Too silent?”
No new emails, text messages, phone calls, or new ideas. “What am I gonna fill time with??? Standing in the middle of your bedroom, or is it the mall.
Sometimes, one can freak out…especially during those adolescent years. Remember?
Well, here’s the amazing truth about those, “silent moments.”
Those, “moments–hours, days, weeks” are an open invitation delivered SPECIAL for you. Your Creator designed those moments into your timeline’s composition. He wants to meet with you to help you in developing your “now” and your future.
Once we enter the space of silence, we will realize that we are not alone, but that the Designer of our hearts and life is right there waiting.
So, “fear not” and take the plunge.
His conversation will love you, give you ideas, reveal hidden goodness.
How? Well. We are all different. Is it a walk or run for you? Open journal with water colors or oil pastels? Worship coming out of your heart, as you lean up against that tree in the nearby woods? Is it your closet, your window nook, your backyard, your tree swing? Whichever it is, you’ll know. Peace, Truth, Love, Light follows Him wherever He visits.
Some call this a dark time. Possibly, but there is a brighter perspective. I recall a conversation, with one of the best guitar players in the West. He said that perfecting his playing was not the outcome of moments in the limelight, busy schedules, or social events. Quality and marksmanship was a result of developing his skill during the “silent moments” — no fanfare, no accolades, no schedule, no lights.
He said that “silence” doesn’t last forever and when that moment is over, he realized that because he utilized that empty space he was well prepared for the next season. It’s the same with us, if we would push past the discomfort one will know that this preparation–realignment–communion time has done it’s job in strengthening and cultivating.
Our fear of silence, rejection, aloneness, “the how” is combated as we face the “empty space” — the “silent moments” heart/head on. Once we enter the space of silence, we will realize that we are not alone, but that the Designer of our hearts and life is right there waiting.

“sharing is the game plan.”
You’ve been given “manna” from The Originator’s table.
You’ve tasted it, chewed on it, swallowed it, reminisced on the incredible flavor, and noticed subsequent effects of ingesting such wonders.
You then decided to share morsels from the table. Don’t be gettin upset when the receiver in turn tasted it, chews on it, swallows it, reminisces on the incredible flavor, and notices subsequent effects of ingesting such wonders. They too will decide to share.
The power of multiplication is The Originator’s design.
Don’t forget, without The Originator Himself sharing with you, you would of never received.👑
In reality we don’t really know at which stage of “revelating” the receiver was at when “your” food arrived to their lips. Were you the cultivator of the soil of their heart, the seed thrower, the fertilizer, the watering can, the pruner, the harvester, the chef, the host, the presenter of the “manna”. The important truth is, whichever stage they were at your sharing furthered them on their path; hence, you multiplied.
The Originator will notice you have a table full of guests, and will delight in serving you more “manna.”

Hello gentle giants ✨⚡️
Pentecost gave us permission and ability to move and have dominion–bring heaven to your lands. ⚡️Go into all the world and preach Christ’s Gospel, making disciples.
Time to change from waiting clothes to garments engulfed in His flame.
ps. Jordan is my land–yup. This morning, I couldn’t find photos of where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, resulting in being covered in the Spirit of his Father–through His DOVE, but that took place in Jordan.
The Spirit of the one who prepares the way is with us. He longs for us to partner with Him….

Wow, so overwhelmed while reminiscing about the historical events scribed in Acts 2. Grab a drink, Acts 2, a pen, and join in on this pondering…..
“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place.
And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind,
and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves,
and they rested on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues,
as the Spirit was giving them utterance.
5Now there were Jews living in Jerusalem,
devout men from every nation under heaven.
And when this sound occurred, the crowd came together,
and were bewildered because each one of them was hearing them speak in his own language.
They were amazed and astonished,
saying, “Why, are not all these who are speaking Galileans?
“And how is it that we each hear them in our own language to which we were born?
“Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia,
Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,
Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the districts of Libya around Cyrene,
and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes,
Cretans and Arabs—we hear them in our own tongues speaking of the mighty deeds of God.”
And they all continued in amazement and great perplexity,
saying to one another, “What does this mean?”
(Acts 2:1-12 NASV included below)
Into the earth and its inflicted limitations supernatural reality of Divinity — His Spirit which is Holy was released. Imagination can lead you to envision this incredible highway being made from heaven to earth, as His gift of presence moved through the galaxies making its way to Jerusalem to those who covenanted to be part of His family.
Such a roar. The noise so noticeable that thousands within the region of Jerusalem heard highway’s approach and followed This presence to where the 120 were immersed under the loving fiery power of His identity.
The crescendo of languages–symphonic unity of declarations interrupted the natural order and knowledge of the day, forever changing what was available to mankind.
Engulfed in His wind and fire
This Gift of presence transformed man’s soul and spirit
They received Him!!!
the mind of Christ!!!
Just imagine (or reminisce in what you already have knowledge of–experienced)
Those in the upper room received a new language,
articulating the greatness of God!!!
It isn’t about man, it’s about Him and His magnificent greatness.
Our minds couldn’t comprehend–didn’t have the language–utterance was limited
to explain Him
He revolutionized the tongues of man–
Loosed by fire–
spoke thru those in the upper room–the waiting room to humanity gathered outside.
His highway of fire traveled from heaven to earth
carried knowledge of Him who is Majesty.
Tongues right on our minds.
Opening earth to receive heavens limitless-ness
What a precious gift God gave us.
Life transforming baptism for those who ask.
Baptism of a supernatural substance–
His fiery reality,
Revealing through fire and tongue
Manifested heaven’s truth.
It’s about God’s greatness!
It’s about transforming into His likeness!
It’s about His message!
It’s about communication!
It’s about God and man becoming ONE!
its about God’s Greatness!!!
“Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard,
And which have not entered the heart of man,
All that God has prepared for those who love Him.
For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God….For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.”
(1 Corinthians 2:9-16 NASV)

Rain falling the size of lollipops;
straight down, horizontal lines,
Arrows of lightning;
piercing the atmosphere,
striking forces unseen.
Unearthly decibels commanding attention;
Sounds–vibrations across the skies,
cold–foreign to spring’s heat,
size enough to cover green, brown, and grey.
Waters pushing past the man-made dam;
shiftings in its path.
Winds whipping through fields;
strength waking up the sleeping–loud,
fierceness uprooting trees–arms.
Coals of fire from beneath the earth;
once standing still.
Seven in one,
rivers of fire stream
while ash fills the atmosphere.
What is this canopy?
Patterns of clouds;
Dark clouds covering the sun,
introduction to storm’s theater.
What cried in drought
Earth’s events new to generation present,
not to the sun–not to the land.
Under the sun.
Do we suggest the negative approach?
Do we sense the heart of God?
Do we whimper in fear of storms unknown?
Do we find peace in the howling winds?
David said that God was His strength, his rock,
his fortress, his deliverer, his shield,
his salvation, his refuge.
David told God; cords of death,
torrents of ungodliness, snares of death, terrified, confronted–surrounded him.
Gods response came from His Temple.
The earth responded–God’s reaction.
Thousands have prayed–
This is His answer–
He has come.
His heart responds, the earth shook — Earthquakes
He, angry at enemies untold, coals of fire spewed — Volcanoes
His chariots He road, darkness covered — Clouds
He moved, they responded — Mighty Winds
His voice, He sounded — Thunder
His rebuke, He decreed — Hail
His arrows, His intentions upon the enemy — Lightning
He leads thru the deep waters, as through a wilderness — Waters shift into floods
He moves, He comes, water cleansed — The rain
He, Him, God.
When He comes–a holy visitation;
Looking for a dwelling.
Life comes–man responds.
Truth, Belief, Faith–respond
Move of God
Sons of God
Playing the harp–once lain on the willow tree
He comes–in us–Hope of Glory!!
Presence of God
Truth of God
Mouth of God
Spirit of God
Justice of God
