Choose Wisely - Now Think On This by Steve Martin

Choose Wisely

Now Think On This
Steve Martin

“The wisdom of the wise keeps life on track; the foolishness of fools lands them in the ditch.” (Proverbs 14:8, THE MESSAGE)

Have you ever gone down a wrong way, thinking at the time it was the right way, and end up somewhere you wish you hadn’t? Whether it be a road, a choice in life or a decision made hurriedly to avoid making another one, only to find out later it was just the wrong decision.

I have. And I have had to pay a price for it.

Sometimes it cost time. Other occasions it cost money. And then even at a more hurtful occurrence, it cost a relationship. Many times the wrong can’t be undone and you live with the pain and hurt for many years. Try as you might, there are repercussions to our actions that have to be walked out.

When I consider a lost relationship between friends, one that had taken years to build, I find myself trusting once again in the goodness of the Lord, after seeking forgiveness and reconciliation with them, ending with no positive results. Our times are in His hands, and we must trust that His restoration hopefully will come at some point.

There is one choice that many continue to decide to do, and that is to walk day by day without giving one’s life to the Lord’s plan and purpose for oneself. To me, that would be unthinkable. To go through this life choosing to do our own thing, without thought or consideration of having the Creator, the very One who created each of us, be unable to reveal His ultimate desire for our life because of our choosing not to let Him. To ignore His longing to give us the future and the hope promised to each, if only we freely choose to let Him in, would indeed be tragic. And yet many choose the unthinkable and do just that.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.” (Jeremiah 29:11-14, NKJV)

No one person, family or country can long seek their own way and reap the ultimate results of goodness without the love of God working through them. All around us we can see the lasting effects of those who have gone before us, choosing to live as one sang decades ago, “I did it my way.” And where did that get you?

Our lifelong choices not only affect our ending but decisions we make ripple down through those who follow behind us, possibly making the same mistakes as they too walk in our footsteps.

When I was in my late 20’s I heard a message from the pulpit, when the leader of the church gathering told us that choices we make today will have a long-lasting effect decades down the road. If we make the decision to go one way, even if just a slight turn off the correct path, ultimately we will possibly end up way off the mark, and the only way to get back on the right road would be to go back to that point and choose the right one. It is called repentance.

In my walk with the Lord, I considered this word quite often, and sought to have the Holy Spirit give me clarity and insight as to which road to choose each time I came to a fork in the road. Many times it wasn’t the easy choice, or the “multitudes” choice, but it was the Lord’s choice. To this day I can say I am very thankful for His guidance and direction He has certainly given.

My prayer is that today, when you are faced with a decision that will impact your life for years to come, that you will not depend on your own insights, your own feelings, or what is the “likely” choice, but that you will seek the roadmap the Lord already knows about and has laid out before you were born, and which we can know – through His Word and by receiving godly counsel from others. And then walk in faith no matter what the cost may be. It will affect not only your eternity but others around you.

We all have been given a free will, but we also have been given God’s Word, His Holy Spirit, and the fellowship of believers to help guide us.

Choose wisely.

Shalom and ahava (peace and love in Hebrew).

'Christians Need to Stand Up Against Injustice': Beth Moore Calls for Reform, Repentance in Evangelical Church - CBN News Emily Jones

'Christians Need to Stand Up Against Injustice': 
Beth Moore Calls for Reform, Repentance in Evangelical Church
CBN News Emily Jones
Evangelist Beth Moore is calling on the church to repent and renounce what she calls
"pampered gospel."

The author and minister participated in a panel discussion on "Evangelicals and the Future of 
Racial Unity" at the MLK50 Conference on the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s 

Moore said Christians need to stand up against injustice, even if it costs them their popularity 
or forces them out of their comfort zone. 
in the believing life," she said. "When we carry our cross and we follow Jesus, we are walking 
into a storm. We were told that in Luke 10, Matthew 10 we will be 'sheep among wolves,' not 
wolves among sheep."

Moore explained that "sheep among wolves" means Christians will be "persecuted," "criticized," 
"imprisoned" and even killed for speaking the truth --.something she believes few American Christians 
truly experience or understand.

"We have been very proud of the fact that we have not subscribed to a prosperity gospel. But what 
we have subscribed to is a pampered gospel where we are so afraid of suffering and we are so afraid 
someone is going to criticize us and hurt our feelings," Moore said. "This is the Gospel work of 
Jesus Christ and we are going with Him. Whatever it takes, no matter how unpopular it is. He was 
hated. We have to have thicker skin than that."

Before the conference, she took to Twitter to encourage the church to repent of its failures.

I think some of us haven’t had enough practice at colossally blowing it. Listen, I’m not an expert 
on many things but I am an expert on colossally blowing it. It’s not hard to repent. You just get 
down on your face and go, God, I’ve colossally blown it. I’m so sorry. Please help.

Beth Moore

Evangelicalism is in humiliating need of reform but the thing is, it’s possible. In OUR lifetimes. 
All that stands between us & an astonishing work of the Holy Spirit is repentance. Quit being 
scared of rocking a boat that has run aground on an island of compromise.Walk on water.
"Why on God's green earth are we expending untold energy still defending ourselves when we 
could just repent of placing trust in man to save & champion us, defend our principles & meanwhile 
keep us privileged & empowered instead of trusting God to help us?How hard is it to repent?" she said.

"I think some of us haven't had enough practice at colossally blowing it. Listen, I'm not an expert 
on many things but I am an expert on colossally blowing it. It's not hard to repent," she continued. 
"You just get down on your face and go, God, I've colossally blown it. I'm so sorry. Please help."

"Evangelicalism is in humiliating need of reform but the thing is, it's possible. In OUR lifetimes. 
All that stands between us & an astonishing work of the Holy Spirit is repentance. Quit being 
scared of rocking a boat that has run aground on an island of compromise.Walk on water," 
she concluded.

Many Twitter users agreed with her, but one warned her against putting too much blame on the church.

" As you travel this journey, please do not take on the anger of our culture against the church or 
our nation. There are many wrongs. Wisdom and truth needed," Pam Anderson tweeted.

Moore responded by saying, "Not at all resistant to that word of caution."

Pastor Oyewale Abel of Abba Father International, Nigeria, West Africa - "The Sinners"

Pastor Oyewale Abel and wife Margaret

The Sinners
Pastor Oyewale Abel 

THE SINNERS (MATTHEW 11:20-30; LUKE 19:1-10; JOHN 3:1-21 )

Sinner means someone who has done something wrong according to the religious or moral law; one involved in immorality. Sin is any form of non-conformity unto or transgression against the law. All have sinned, so also are all expected to return to the Lord to avoid everlasting punishment. The sinner is the one who remains so until the moment.


"And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, "Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house." (The Gospel of Luke

As usual, Jesus was on His itinerary, affecting every life He come across. Then He met the rich chief tax collector who was very eager to meet the Saviour. Jesus saw his eagerness, despite his limitations. He would not allow anything (his sins, stature, or status) to come between them. Though someone had just disappointed Jesus on account of wealth, He would not give up on this ready-to-repent publican. How do you see sinners around you?

"And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, "Zacchaeus, make haste and come down for today I must stay at your house." Abiding in that sinner's house was in tandem with His purpose. Against the people's wish, He offered salvation to Zacchaeus. There was no discrimination on Jesus' part.

"There was a man of the Pharisees, named  Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, "Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher who has come from God, for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him." (John:3:1-2 )

Here is another sinner who come to Jesus by night when He was humanly expected to be resting. He is ready to attend to anyone at any time, no matter when and how he or she comes. He was not moved by unnecessary encomiums but was concerned with the genuine questions from the ready mind. 

He is always ready to attend to your case when you sincerely present your questions and requests. Be willing and obedient. Jesus knew Nicodemus's real need, and would not allow anything, including his encomium, to distract His attention from the ultimate. 

What should our attitude be to sinners that we come across, especially the well-to-do? All sinners must come to Jesus Christ, like newborn babies, regardless of their status. It is the desire of our Lord Jesus Christ to make the sinners the righteousness of God, for that was why He became sin, even though He knew no sin. He is the high priest and advocate for all who would surrender to Him.

My brothers and sisters - run away from sin and not from sinners.


"And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades; for if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day." (The Gospel of Matthew)

Was Jesus cursing? No! They had already cursed themselves by rejecting the Gospel.The magnitude of the miracles done in the city meant nothing to those children of disobedience. Imagine Bethsaida, the home of great people, and where Jesus personally visited, ignoring  His gospel. What a disappointment! They wasted His labours. 

Brothers and sisters, all you lovers of Israel, I hope you are not wasting God's grace. Jesus did not only condemn these stubborn people but also gave the way out by coming to Him, in whom there is immediate and ultimate rest.

As you are reading this message, HAVE YOU FOUND JESUS?

In every race and time, God has not taken lightly to the issue of haughtiness. No one who genuinely seeks the Lord will be cast away. The only place for the finally impenitent is hell. Preachers will not be held guilty if they have done their part in warning the recalcitrant.

May the good God of Israel bless you all, in Jesus' Name.

Prophetic Word: I Hear a Holy Spirit Fire Alarm Going Off! - Larry Sparks CHARISMA NEWS

In the spirit, the fire alarm is meant to call you, like Moses, into the unknown realms of His glory (instead of away from them). (Max Pixel)

Prophetic Word: I Hear a Holy Spirit Fire Alarm Going Off!

08/27/17  Larry Sparks  CHARISMA NEWS
I received the following prophetic word at my hotel in Toronto, Canada, after receiving prayer from Carol Arnott:
"I believe a fire alarm is going off in the spirit realm; for some it's good, for some it's bad.
For some, they are running toward the fire—they are following the loud, interrupting sound of the alarm. It awakens them from sleep, apathy, slumber. It awakens them from routine and ritual. It awakens entire churches—it's confrontational and awakening in nature. It's loud and, to some, obnoxious. In the same way a natural fire alarm interrupts what we've been doing, demanding attention and action, the fire alarm in the spirit interrupts what we've been doing spiritually. It interrupts the show, the spectacle, the programs. I prophesy the fire of the Holy Spirit interrupts "cookie cutter Christianity," calling us out of routine and ritual and into the depths of the unknown. The fire alarm is calling us out of predictability, and summoning us into the smoke on the mountain.
This fire alarm, however, is doing the opposite of what a natural fire alarm does. In the spirit, the fire alarm is meant to call you, like Moses, into the unknown realms of His glory (instead of away from them).
So on the third day, in the morning, there was thunder and lightning, and a thick cloud on the mountain, and the sound of an exceedingly loud trumpet. All the people who were in the camp trembled (Ex. 19:16).
At Mount Sinai, a "fire alarm" went off. The people trembled and drew back, but Moses drew near. Moses had tasted the fire before at the burning bush (Ex. 3). Even though Mount Sinai looked ominous and Moses had no guarantees, he would rather venture into the fire and thunder and lightning of the unknown, where God was present than stay on the sidelines of comfort where God wasn't.
Moses is your invitation.  Jesus opened the door of access so you could, at any time, go up to God and boldly enter the realm of His glory!  We are not waiting for a move of God; God is waiting for a move of people. The church needs to shift from waiting for an expression or manifestation of God's fire that is comfortable and on her terms, and instead, turn aside, like Moses did, as the Spirit of God begins to move—perhaps in unfamiliar and unpredictable ways.
When they set out from Rephidim, they came to the Wilderness of Sinai and camped in the wilderness. Israel camped there before the mountain.
Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain, saying, "Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob and tell the children of Israel" (Ex. 19:2-3).
Don't Be Content Living at the 'Foot of the Mountain!'
"Then Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain" Ex. 19:17)
With this fire alarm going off, I see people "taking a stand" in the church—either for the Holy Spirit or against His movement. He is so loving and embracing, though. I believe that people who took stands against the Spirit in one season are now desperate to encounter Him. They are desperate to venture into the realm of His glory, instead of sitting on the safety of sidelines. It means interruption. It means risk. It means the unknown. It means shakings and rumblings. It means unusual manifestations of His Presence breaking out. It means dealing with demonic spirits and fleshly attention-seekers. Pastors and leaders, this is for you as well. The Lord is calling people individually and collectively into the untapped and accessed realms of His glory, where His presence is given priority. Moses had priority for the presence of God, even when it terrified him. We see this as Moses turns aside and listens to the voice that comes out of the burning bush. His response?  "And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God" (Ex. 3:6). Even though he was afraid, and the experience was unusual, and the encounter was unfamiliar, he didn't run. He didn't flee. He didn't take a stand at a distance; he moved toward the fire. The voice of the Lord is summoning His people—all of His people—into the fire of divine encounter.
Please... don't take a stand at the foot of the mountain, when in fact, every barrier has been removed for you to boldly approach the throne of God (see Heb. 4.16).
The Spirit Is Hovering, Brooding and Testing the Waters!
Sadly, for some, they want to run away when they hear the fire alarm going off. I see churches with fire alarms going off as the Holy Spirit starts to move. In fact, it's like the Spirit is currently brooding and hovering throughout the body of Christ. He's testing the waters to see where He is welcome in His fullness. It's like what happened in Genesis 1. The Spirit hovered over the waters; He was brooding. He was waiting for something to partner with to effect creation. God spoke, and the Spirit moved and created. Likewise, the Spirit is hovering, awaiting partnership in the earth from those who are, literally filled with the Word of God. God is, in essence, looking for a people filled with Himself to partner with His movement and activity.
Here's the deal: I sense that as the movement of the Spirit begins to manifest, even in the most timid measures, fire alarms will go off. You see, the fire alarm is very sensitive to anything that would confront the norm. Just a little smoke sets it off. Just a spark will cause the alarm to start blaring. The fire alarm upsets the status quo, the way we've always done life, ministry and church. The fire alarm immediately recognizes the invasive movement of the Spirit, threatening our programs and protocols and agendas. The question: is the alarm a call to run, or a summons to turn aside?
But I believe the Lord is saying that He's not trying to throw out agendas and protocols, as many charismatics and Pentecostals sometimes propose. Oh no. He's just looking to infuse them. He's looking to fill them with the life, breath and effectiveness of heaven. Continue with your sermon series, worship sets, tithe and offering, announcements and so on. Have three services, five services, 10 services. You don't even need four-hour services to host the Holy Spirit. None of these things matters. What matters is giving the Spirit's movement absolute priority—and hosting Him on His terms—so that when the fire alarm goes off, you move with His movement rather than shut it down.
Run Toward the Fire!
As the fire alarm goes off in the church, people are going to run—somewhere. They will either run toward the Lord or away from him. And if our church communities speak against the movement of the Spirit and encourage people to move away from the Spirit, that puts them in danger of missing, yes missing what God is doing in this season. This is a hard word, but there is great grace in it as well.
Repentance and humility are instant keys to getting on board with the move of God, regardless of how much you have been against it in the past. Sure, you may have responded negatively to the fire alarm in previous years. You may have taught against the movement and manifestations of the Spirit. Perhaps you witnessed much of the goofy stuff that has happened in the name of "revival," outpouring, the Charismatic movement, Holy Spirit manifestations and so forth. But this is no excuse to run away from the Spirit when the fire alarm goes off; if anything, the Lord is calling you to press in and run toward Him all the more to seek for the pure, the genuine and authentic.
I see the Lord literally changing and tenderizing the hearts of His people, so that as they hear the fire alarm, they respond by running toward the fire—toward the fire, in Jesus' name! 
Fire Alarm: The Call to Filled Altars
I see altars filled, and it's glorious. Yes, in many non-denominational mega-churches. I see large, influential churches where the pastors, leaders and yes, the people are so hungry for the presence of God that they put aside their cares and concerns of what the fire might look like—and they go after it.
I see distinct moments in meetings and gatherings—especially during praise and worship—where the Spirit begins to brood. He starts to hover. He starts to touch. And with His touch comes a choice. I see pastors and leaders literally watching their communities get subtly touched by the Spirit, and know in their hearts that all it will take is one word to partner with God to see a rumbling of the Spirit released in their midst. One word shifts the service. One decision to partner with the movement of the Spirit will shift and change everything. One choice to turn aside, not turn away. I see this happening. I see during praise and worship, and even the preaching, moments where God moves, the pastors and leaders see this, and they say, "Yes ... at any cost. yes!" 
I see their yes opening floodgates of divine presence that produces filled altars. I see this yes actually removing ceilings over the church. Right now, I see in the spirit ceilings breaking off entire church communities: ceilings that were not placed there by God; they were established by man and the ways of man. These ceilings represent our attempts to control and regulate church culture according to what we think is most effective—and more so, these ceilings have been built to actually "protect" the church from the unexpected, the "weird," the strange, and the unusual. But I see the collective hunger of the church, both from the people who attend our services and the pastors and leaders, rising to heaven.
In the spirit, I can clearly see pastors and leaders (especially those of non-denominational mega-churches) in their offices, almost like with the window shades closed and the lights out, crying out in travail, "God, there has got to be more!" I specifically see the cry of John Kilpatrick on pastors and leaders in this season (John Kilpatrick was pastor of Brownsville Assembly of God during the historic Brownsville Revival and before the revival broke out, he would go over to the church in the middle of the night, lay sprawled out over the front row, and cry out to God, "There has got to be more! Oh God! I need you, Lord!" 
I see pastors and leaders filling the altars, and this act of church leaders expressing their personal hunger breaks something open in the spirit realm.
Step Into the Glory
The Lord says, "Responding to this hunger—regardless of what it costs—will break the ceilings that prevent you and your community from accessing the open Heaven is already available!"
I see open heavens over these churches. There's nothing that really needs to happen from God's end. Heaven is opened, the Spirit is brooding and the fire alarm is going off. The next step is up to us. It's up to you, pastor!  It's up for you, believer!  What will you do when the fire alarm goes off and the Spirit moves upon you?  Your church community?  Your gathering?  Will you run toward it, as Moses did, or run away and keep your distance, as the people of Israel did?
So step into the glory. God is moving. His Spirit is brooding. He wants to break out with force and fire. He wants to respond to every song lyric we've sung in past and present seasons: "Holy Spirit ... come flood this place and fill the atmosphere" ("Holy Spirit," Bryan and Katie Torwalt), "Fresh outpouring, tear the fabric open ..." ("Fresh Outpouring," Kim Walker-Smith); "Spirit break out ..." (Tim Hughes); "God let Your fire fall down" ("Here for You," Matt Redman), "Open up the heavens, we want to see You, open up the floodgates ..." ("Open Up the Heavens," Vertical Worship); "Let the Heavens open, let Your kingdom move..." ("Let the Heavens Open," Kari Jobe); "Let it rain, let it rain, open the floodgates of heaven" ("Let it Rain," Michael W. Smith).
Need I continue the list? 
"Your songs are steps into the glory," says the Lord. We've been praying for this outpouring, family of God. We've been asking for it with our songs. These anthems of worship are not exclusive to the charismatic church. Far from it!  These lyrics are arising from Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist and Catholic communities. These songs represent a corporate cry that has been arising from the earth. Even from those who are unfamiliar with a "charismatic" expression of Christianity, the desperation and desire for God to rend the heavens, come down and move with power is still so strong.
The Moses Company: Go Into the Fire!
Now Mount Sinai was completely covered in smoke because the Lordhad descended upon it in fire, and the smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain shook violently. When the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him with a voice.
The Lord came down on Mount Sinai, on the top of the mountain. And the Lord called Moses up to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up (Ex. 19:18-20).
So, what is God looking for?  A Moses company—a Moses people. A people who would follow the example we see in Exodus 19. They would see the smoke and fire. They would hear the rumblings and thunderings. They would even be startled by the lightnings and dramatic nature of the manifestations. Smoke. Fire. Thunder. Lightning. And then the sound of the trumpet—the fire alarm!
Two choices: run away, or run toward and step in!
Run toward, not away. Run toward the rumblings, the lightnings, the smoke and the fire. Yes, this fire will kill you. It will purify you. It will purge you. This fire will consume you. It will immerse you. It will baptize you. The fire will change everything.

I have something to repent of... Lance Wallnau

It is not often that I publicly repent for something... but I feel that I need to.
The gift of an entrepreneur is the ability to create wealth. It's the ability to create resources, tools and materials that fill a gap and meet a need that other people are willing to pay for.
When the Apostle Paul needed to, he made tentsLikewise, it is this entrepreneurial "tent making" gift that has funded and sustained my ministry for 20 years. Working in the marketplace as a consultant, trainer or executive coach has kept me sharp, relevant and able to produce real-world solutions to real problems faced by my audience.
Whenever I've faced the challenge of cash flow I would try to solve it by creating some new product, or pick up a secular organization to self-fund the ministry.
This season it's different. The 7 Mountain (7m) message has gone global and this year it took me headfirst into the cross hairs of the Media and Government Mountain's. It's one thing to talk about the Promised Land, but another to cross over and face the giants. In the end, we made history. It was Christians who made the decisive difference in this last election as 84% showed up and stood strong. What happens next? America has been given a gift of mercy - an extension of time - in the face of judgment. It should bother you that there is no cohesive strategy to keep those 84% of Christians engaged in the battle of ideas. While USA Today quotes me as one of the few evangelicals who predicted the future accurately, few are quoting me now as I urge believers to heed the warning - we only have a window of time!
This moment is not just an American "reset" - it is a global reset. I am getting calls from believers in other countries that see this as the moment to shift their nation. The truth is, I need to self fund these global 7m missionary events. Doors have opened into China and Africa but we don't have a big enough budget to send the team that is needed.
For the last couple of years Annabelle would say: "You do not have the resources to do what you need to do because you don't ask. You need to humble yourself and create an opportunity for those who believe in the ministry to participate with us. They know this work is legitimate. Tell them what you need. This is 100 fold soil to sow into - God will bless them! Just ask."
Repentance isn't always a sin of commission (something we did) sometimes it's a sin of omission (something we failed to do.) I think I've made it harder on myself by not teaching on the benefits and power of partnership. It's something I teach and practice but never share with my own audience. This is a sin of omission - and maybe a sin of pride. For some reason I was reluctant to share the burden of what we are attempting to do.

On Friday Night, May 27th, I was traveling on an 11 hour overnight flight from Tel Aviv to JFK airport. I had just co-led a 10 day prophetic tour in Israel and was completely exhausted flying back home. As I went to sleep on the plane, I had a very powerful prophetic dream from the Lord that came in audible message form. The Holy Spirit spoke to me as I was asleep and when I woke up on the plane, I had an indescribable urgency to get out my computer and immediately type out all that I had heard from Him in the dream.  For me personally, I have been having these non symbolic, very literal types of prophetic dreams since I was 12 years old and have published many of them concerning President Obama and Hillary Clinton in one of my books called, “Chronicles of the Unknown Dreamer 2013“.
This is what I heard in the prophetic dream on the plane and what I wrote down:
“My eyes are upon you in this hour. Though the birth pains and complications have been great in recent years as gross darkness and immorality has tried to cover the land, so I Myself will deliver this Isaac that I have promised to you. I, the Lion of Judah am roaring in Charlotte, who can but prophesy? Can you hear My roar sons of men? Gather the elders of the land, call a sacred assembly, and fast together, for Charlotte shall be a flashpoint for awakening and revival on the East Coast of the United States. What happens in Charlotte will touch Washington D.C. There is a divine connection between Charlotte and Washington D.C. that will shake the nation. Tremors of glory will be felt in Washington D.C., but only as a foreshadowing of what I will do in Charlotte” says the Lord.
He continued on, “I call forth My Daniel Company on the East Coast! I say to My prophets and intercessors: because you have chosen not to feast upon worldly pleasures, but rather dine with Me, I will give you unprecedented favor to move the hearts of kings that sit in positions of authority on the East Coast. There is a trumpet of holiness that shall be sounded. I am releasing prophetic messengers of repentance and consecration that will challenge the Nebuchadnezzar’s to bow their knees to My righteous decrees. Yes, the knees of some governors and even congressmen and women will bow as My prophetic messengers release righteous decrees that will set the people free.
You must recognize that Governor Haley from South Carolina is my Esther of the hour! My body on the East Coast must stand with her, for the time is now! Open up your arms to her and do not be blind to the anointing and favor that I have placed upon her life for such a time as this. From Jacksonville, FL to Washington D.C., there will be a divine window in June through September where strategic planning for awakening on the East Coast must take place. During these months, many of My servants will be visited by an unusual wind of grace to heal, restore, and refresh them. Yes, even some physical storms are coming as a sign in the natural realm that My glory shall be released in the spirit realm.
Lou Engle, call the huddle and assemble the team. The prophecies of Bob Jones and Bill Bright will not fall to the ground!” says the Lord.
May the Holy Spirit use His words to encourage, strengthen, and comfort the body of Christ in this hour.
