Sunscreen Safety

      If you are a sunscreen user, you might want to read this article, Sunscreen Safety Questioned Yet Again, by Dr. Mercola.  I rarely apply sunscreen unless I'm going to be in the bright sun, especially near water, for extended periods of time, because I have read that the use of sunscreen prohibits the body from absorbing vitamin D from the sun and is therefore one of the reasons for the epidemic of vitamin D deficiency.  When we went to Kauai in November I discovered many sunscreens are banned there.  We were only allowed to use "reef-safe" sunscreen.  I concluded that if the ingredients in sunscreen were destroying the coral reef those ingredients were probably not safe for my skin either.  After reading the above article I see that was a very good conclusion.  I will now be sure to use only sunscreen with "reef-safe" in the description.

I say AMEN to this encouraging word that was posted on The Elijah List today!

Many Firsts
I've been experiencing many "firsts" in my life recently, and they have been happening in just one week!
The Lord began speaking to me that there were going to be many firsts in this new year. Even the first Sunday of this year was also the first Sunday of the new decade! People are going to be trying and doing many new things. They will be reinvented. They will be rebranded. They will be born again! It's a year where people will truly walk in their callings. They will gain a new name and walk forward as a new creation.
"No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations." (Genesis 17:5)
Just as President Trump was the first U.S. president to cross into the border and nation of North Korea, this will be a time and year of firsts. Just as the U.S. Embassy was officially moved to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, this will be a year of firsts. 2020 will be the year of your "firsts"! First-fruits belong to the Lord.
You Are Breaking Out
You will be breaking out of an old mold. I saw that many people would be breaking out of old definitions, names, titles, and doctrines. Many people are breaking out of the old cocoon and will be spreading out their wings to fly and to dream and to be!
You are breaking out of the old shackles, chains, bondages, and stigmas that the world has put on you. You are coming out of your grave clothes, Lazarus! 
The World Will Be Shocked
The Lord is about to astonish the minds of men! People are going to be shocked; minds will be blown and jaws will drop. People are going to be so blown away that they're going to have a literal encounter with the face of the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Souls will be saved because of the awesome and God-fearing things that are about to take place all across the world.
"And they were all amazed at the greatness of God. While everyone was marveling at all that Jesus did, He said to His disciples..." (Luke 9:43)
"However, as it is written: 'What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived' – the things God has prepared for those who love Him." (1 Corinthians 2:9)
Signs and Wonders
2020 is a year where everything is changing. The game is changing. The race is changing. The stock market is changing. Everything about the Church is changing. We will see unusual signs in the sky. 
We will see increased signs here on the earth.
I saw that the news was going to be broadcasting record-breaking earthquakes, fires, tsunamis, hurricanes and devastations. I saw record-breaking sports games, political issues, cultural genres, wars between nations...things that the world has never seen before!
"Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her children." (Isaiah 66:8)
This is a year where signs and wonders will be the norm and 2020 will be the setting of a new bar and standard on the earth. Things that weren't possible will be accomplished. Things that seemed to be light years away will happen suddenly and will be commonplace. This is the year of fulfillment and unveiling.
"But there is a God in Heaven who reveals secrets..." (Daniel 2:28)
This is the year where God is going to exceed any and all of your expectations. It's going to be like nothing you've ever dreamed of. We will all know that there is a God in Heaven above!
The Church's Comeback
The Lord shared with me that this is the year of the "comeback" for many people. People are gaining resurrection power. There will be a newness like the new mounting of the strength of the eagles' wings, which rises after its long period of waiting.
This is the year of America's comeback! This is the year of the Church's comeback! This is the year where prayer will be back and the Bible, the Word of God, will be preached aloud on air, screen, and live-time television. Jesus is going to be put on display and the whole world will know that this is the doing of the Lord Himself!
"...The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this." (Isaiah 37:32)
World Records Will Be Broken
This will be a year of landslides! The Lord is about to release victory "landslides" on many slopes, scopes, sides, and fronts.
We will be seeing the true colors of many people in this year. Everything will be revealed. You will see what the left is made of. You will see what the right is made of. You will see what the Church is truly made of.
2020 will be a year to remember! It will be a year of launching. It will be a hallmark year where history will be made!
The Greatest Show Ever
2020 is a year where you will break the records! You will be baffling the minds of many. You are emerging from the depths and from the darkness of the shadows of the Most High.
There is a new breed arising. "Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus" (Acts 4:13).
People will be shocked by God's presence in you. People will be amazed and ask you, "Where did you come from? Who is your covering? Who is this God that you serve?" When they see you and the power, anointing, and authority that you walk in, they will be wrecked. People will be saved because of this new standard and because of this new breed of glory carriers.
I believe 2020 is the year of the world's greatest show! Your true "you" is being unveiled. Your true "you" is being displayed. You are a record breaker and you will forever be a record holder.
The Church will break major world records in this year. There will be an awesome, glorious revelation of Jesus Christ in 2020 and beyond! "This is a revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants the events that must soon take place" (Revelation 1:1).
"Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD, strong and mighty, the LORD, mighty in battle!
"Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.
"Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory! Selah." (Psalm 24:7-10)

'The Fog Attacking Forerunners' by Lana Vawser

I am so encouraged by this word from Lana Vawser which was released through Global Prophetic Voice today!  I don't consider myself a forerunner, but I certainly have felt discouraged and 'in a fog' lately.  That is basically what I was praying about this morning.  Isn't the Lord so good to send encouragement when we ask?  I'm sure you will also be uplifted when you read it.  I am posting it not only for you, but for me to read again and again.
'The Fog Attacking Forerunners' by Lana Vawser 

There is an incredible increase of the pioneering anointing being released in the body of Christ right now and there are many forerunning what God is going to do and release in the body of Christ in this new era. 
The Lord showed me that many of these forerunners are carrying significant revelation and wisdom for this new era and what God is going to do, but they have also been battling a fog, a heaviness and almost a disorientation. The Lord showed me that there is an attack from the enemy right now against many of these pioneers to STEAL REVELATION through many different ways.

I heard the Holy Spirit say:

“Forerunners the greatest release of My wisdom, discernment, divine insight and understanding is available to you right now and the enemy is doing all he can to hinder you stepping into this new realm. The more he pushes and attempts to steal the revelation I am releasing to you through confusion, a slumbering spirit, unusual discourage and despair ad heaviness, push back harder by seeking Me and feasting on My Word. Dig your heels into the ground and do not move. For the enemy is pushing hard, but the truth is, you are now about to press through into the greatest level of divine wisdom, revelation and understanding for this new era.”


The Lord continued to speak:

“Forerunners, the divine wisdom, insight, revelation, discernment and understanding I am releasing right now is going to bring forth RAPID and RADICAL REFORMATION on a scale you have never seen. The level of impact, influence, shift and complete reform that will be seen through the release and implementation of My wisdom is unprecedented. This is why the battle is so fierce, but I declare over you today that the battle is about to break, and the banks are about to break. The battle has been fierce, but it is about to break and release the BANKS OF REVELATION, DIVINE WISDOM, INSIGHT AND UNDERSTANDING into your life and ministry that will change everything, bringing rapid reformation.”

The major increase of divine wisdom that is being released upon the forerunners right now that are seeking God for His wisdom, is unprecedented and the Lord showed me that there is a huge tidal wave of DIRECTION that is coming upon you. God is going to be giving you more and more SPECIFIC CLARITY and UNDERSTANDING on how to implement the WISDOM of God in specific DIRECTIONS. Many have been hearing divine wisdom for this new era but have been unsure of how to walk it out or what it looks like in the natural. There has also been a heavy attack of confusion and disorientation, but the Lord is bringing even greater clarity of DIRECTION. The fog will and is lifting.

I heard the Lord say:
“The distraction is intense because all I have for you is about to gain greater TRACTION”

I have had many encounters with the Lord about the tidal wave that is beginning to gain momentum in the body of Christ in this new era, but is going to increase in velocity and intensity in this new era, and there is a SWIFT deliverance upon forerunners right now. There has been such a battle to keep many forerunners down, in a corner, fighting for their lives in many ways, but the battle is breaking and the torments and attacks of the enemy that have come against you, they are about to stop. Also the areas where you have been crying out to the Lord for deliverance from, I prophesy over you that there is SWIFT deliverance by the hand of God upon you right now.

OVERNIGHT you will move from surviving to THRIVING by the hand of God.

The enemy has fought so hard to keep you in a place of limitation because the Lord will use you in astonishing ways in this era to bring deliverance to others and to see them move into a place of thriving, fruitfulness and abundance.


I also had a vision and I saw demonic figures lurking around the ears of the forerunners. The enemy was whispering such words of “condemnation” into the ears of these forerunners, it was like a constant assault lately.

The Lord spoke:

“Forerunners, there is an attack of your ears by the voice of condemnation because this is the era of your EARS being anointed to HEAR from Me like NEVER before and the era of your VOICE being released in the earth without limitation and hindrance. My voice through you is going to RESOUND louder than ever in this new era. There has been such a long battle over your ears and your voice but I declare unto you today that you have entered the era of INCREASE upon your EARS and your VOICE and you shall find a rest in the HEARING like never before. Pick up your sword and stand against these voices of condemnation and shut down anything raising itself up against the knowledge of who I am and who you are in Me. Your voice will be used to release My truth and your ears will hear My voice with such clarity and there will be such joy in this greater realm of divine revelation and wisdom, that you will remember the battles you have faced, with pain and weariness, no more. Many of you I am raising up now in My wisdom to be a voice of divine DIRECTION to many who are lost and feeling lost.”

“We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to Christ.” ( 2 Corinthians 10:5)


I heard the Lord say:

“Forerunners, the elevation of increase and promotion has arrived”

I saw the elevator open and ready for the forerunners to step in, but what I noticed was the entry pass had two words on it “humility” and “faithfulness”

The forerunners that have been walking in humility and faithfulness to the Lord are entering into this new realm of promotion and increase, and much of the turbulence has also been because of this elevation and promotion that is upon them.

Forerunners, the assignments the Lord has for you in this new era are like nothing you have walked in before, in the level of increase, influence and responsibility He is entrusting to you. The level of divine wisdom, revelation, insight and understanding available to you right now to bring reformation, is unprecedented. So the battle has raged fiercely, but it’s breaking. It’s also a time to ferociously go after what is yours in Christ and stand in your authority and take MUCH TIME to hear the wisdom of the Lord and not run ahead.

This is a time unlike any other. A time that you will take your place in the earth like never before. Don’t shrink back, don’t run away, don’t hide in a cave, arise and keep pushing into Him and pushing back against what the enemy is throwing at you, because you are moving into a whole new realm of walking in divine wisdom, revelation and understanding.

"Embracing Your New Season: Are You Ready for a Wild Ride?" Kathie Walters, Macon, GA

Every day is an adventure with God if we approach it that way so I try to be always ready and expecting.  Therefore, I love this confirming word from Kathy Walters.

When I was ministering at a conference at Redemption House Life Center last year, I kept looking toward the back of the room and saw very vivid colors. Then the colors began to change, and suddenly, in the middle of it, I saw the angel of change. I have seen him twice before, and he had his silver oil jug with him. The anointing began to fall strong and I knew he was anointing people for change.
Your Season Is Changing
The season is changing; your season is changing, like it or not, because God is moving. You can embrace change and have an adventure or resist and make your own life uncomfortable. No one can make you as uncomfortable as the Comforter.
Keep your antenna up so that you don't keep doing just as you've been doing, carrying on in an old anointing. I have been in churches where they have sung songs from moves of God 25 years ago. The same anointing comes back because there is a connection through the songs. What comes out of a move can keep you tied to it. God is going to have us ditch a lot of religion this year because He is making room for HIMSELF.
When your mind is cluttered with religious mindsets (which often we don't realize), they block the light of revelation. There are spirits attached to strong mindsets, and people become immovable. Even if you are old, you don't have to be stiff. Elderly people sometimes get arthritis – well, spiritually, churches can get arthritis too. People can get spiritual arthritis if they aren't open. I'm sure, at some point, you've been confronted with something spiritual that you haven't seen before, and you were jolted, maybe even offended. Well, that will prevent you from flowing on with the next wave.
God isn't asking for our approval or our permission. I think you are going to be quite amazed at yourself by the end of 2020. "Let go and let God have His way."
Where Do You Get Your Information?
Some people take the suggestions of doctors more seriously than what the Lord says or instructs them to do with their health. Eating from the tree of the knowledge of good is as much death as eating from the tree of the knowledge of evil – it is the same tree. 
Where do you get your information? From the tree of knowledge, or from the Tree of Life (Jesus)? Turning a deaf ear to Him can also bring a deaf spirit.
Every move restores a truth, and it brings new songs and different ways of doing things. It brings vitality and excitement. God has His own purpose in a new season. Sometimes people are called for a season, but when the season is over, they don't discern the change and carry on just the same. And the "good thing" becomes a hindrance to the "God thing."
Just be open. Sometimes a door opens, and when you go through it, you find yourself in a different garden than you thought.
Open Doors
This season is on us. I wonder what it will bring for you and me? You have to listen, God doesn't leave you wandering around the Hundred Acre Wood like Pooh Bear, looking for honey.
Can't You Talk Louder, God?
Years ago, when the Lord opened a door in Macon, GA, I was a bit horrified. I even sat up in bed and told God that I wasn't a "Macon" person. But God and Bob Jones made it very clear, and so my family and I came. We have a lovely, large house and offices on three acres. It is so peaceful and perfect for resting when I am not traveling. 
Before this, in another season of my life, I remember God told us to leave Gainesville, FL (where we resided at the time), but He hadn't told us where to go next. My husband David was on a ministry trip, so we put our stuff in storage and I took off with my two girls and a wild, Irish prophetess friend called Bernie. We drove up through GA and TN and NC – still not sure where we were going. 
Suddenly, I had a call from a friend I had not seen for about 5 years. I still don't know how she got my cell phone number. She said, "I have a word for you from the Lord." "Oh really?" I replied. I was shocked at hearing from her out of the blue. She said, "The Lord says, 'You can live wherever you like for two years.'" (You know, I hadn't even thought of what I would like, as I was too busy thinking about what God would like.)
It took a couple of days to think about it. Then I realized how much I had enjoyed the mountains and the "Englishness" of Charlottesville, VA. So, we drove up and found a beautiful house on a glassy lake. The back of the house was all glass, overlooking the lake. It was beautiful and a great price – we had a wonderful time. Two years later, we had our supernatural move to Macon, GA.
So, as this season turns, be flexible and well oiled.
Sailing on the Peregrini Boat – Are You Ready for a Wild Ride?
In the 5th-7th century in Ireland, some of the monks left the monasteries and got into a little boat off the shores of Ireland. The boat had no rudder and no oars, just a sail. They trusted God to send the winds to take them where they were supposed to go. They were called the "Peregrini." I would say that those people had a spirit of abandonment to the purposes of God.
How about getting in that "Peregrini boat"? Are you ready for a wild ride? We only have one life to live down here; we might as well have an adventure. Who wants to die bored? Not me, I want to die laughing or fighting.
As the seasons turn, we will fly high. No striving and no trying. By faith you can ask God for a word; He will release it in your faith as you believe.
To the older generation: You have a great opportunity to do some things you haven't been able to do before...If your kids have flown the coup, you can fly too.

Did you know?

"Did you know: In Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, both Norma (Roe) and Sandra (Doe): Never had an abortion. Were poor & struggling. Were lied to & preyed upon by lawyers. Both became pro-life advocates. #RoevWade was built upon the exploitation of women." —Live Action President Lila Rose

"A Word God Gave Me at the Beginning of the Year About: The Divine Decade" Kat Ker

An encouraging word from Kat Kerr:

"A Word God Gave Me at the Beginning of the Year About: The Divine Decade"    Kat Kerr, Jacksonville, FL

God Speaks His Will His Way
At beginning of year, God was talking to me about the new decade we have entered: 2020–2030. He calls it "The Divine Decade," which will set up the way we will live for the next century. This year, He will begin to openly expose evil men, plans and places that are totally against what He desires and which belong to the darkness—they will be dealt with. He will also openly reveal the good people, plans and places, on this earth, which are just and represent the light and God's own plans—they will be blessed.

These things will begin soon, and we are not to be troubled or be in fear over them. The evil and darkness will FAIL again and again, as they are fighting against God. The just, the righteous and the light, will WIN again and again, as God will have His way in this time.

Look forward to another four years of President Trump in the White House; for even though the darkness has risen against him, the light and power of God is greater and Trump will WIN as He was chosen by God for this time!

Trust God and His Word
There were many things God showed me, not symbolical but literal things, that will happen. Trust God and His Word, and don't trust "those bibles" which have been altered to show man's will. For instance, there are some that say everyone including satan will be forgiven, or that people can go to Heaven without repentance of sin through Jesus Christ. These words are FALSE and lead to corruption and Hell. Do not be double-minded but stand for Christ, and do not believe a lie. Speak truth, life and hope to others and you will be blessed from Heaven.

Trust those who live holy and do not use profane language or sin, and who have kept themselves from false idols. Though some will lie, even in the pulpit, there will be NO POWER in their lives that comes from God. They will not be able to fool others as in the past. He will judge some quickly who do so, and their places and positions will be given to those who live for Him and the glory will be carried by them.

Push Back Darkness
Many will think it is the end, and Christ will return to rescue us, but God has assured me that is not for now. We will learn to push back darkness and rule with Christ and celebrate that we have been chosen as forerunners and precursors to the thousand year reign of Christ on this earth. God has many plans to have a time on this earth to show up and show off in us (the true Believers). He is going to erase the gray area (lie) that says, "There is no God."

Be sure to loose any fear, anger, confusion or offense from your soul and bind the life, love and God's plans and presence to your souls. Run after truth and not deception. These are exciting days for those who belong to Christ.

The end is not yet, so roll up your rapture rugs and get your crown on! Prepare to manifest the power of the living God because we will be living in the "More of God."

It's Time to Be Great!
Even now, Hell is trembling because we are finally finding out who we are and Whose image we are made in. These things must happen so that the generations coming after us will know how to run and who to follow. Signs and wonders are being released onto and into this earth which have been in travail for us, as the sons and daughters of God, to arise.

There are doors opening in the spirit that have never been opened before and NO man or devil can close them. If you are a Believer, alive and breathing right now, you have been chosen by God to be a part of these days. Do not allow your soul to be filled with doubt or lies, for the enemy would like to stop us. It is time to be GREAT for and with God and His Son, Jesus.

Choose wisely who you will vote for and stand with this year and remember God said to "Choose Life." There will be divine protection for many who choose God's plans and ways. Others who fight against God openly and side with the darkness and death, will no longer have favor and some will sleep early.

This is an extraordinary but exciting time to be alive and to see the hand of God moving across this world. Even governments and nations will change; some will run into the light of God and some will choose the darkness. The destiny of nations that some have not considered important will witness mass changes in those lands and for their people. 

God Will Qualify the Chosen
God will show Himself powerfully by the unexpected and unbelievable things He will do in this decade. He has said that He will take Hollywood and the entertainment industry for Himself. He will expose the fake news and lying media and replace them with those who will report the true news. He will give great inventions, cures for diseases and witty ideas to those whom man would consider "not qualified." 

In these days, God will qualify the "chosen." Those who have remained faithful and who have praised their God, and who have even taken spiritual territory from the enemy, are about to be empowered and blessed greatly by their God.

Wealth that has been spoken of for many generations is about to be released in great measures. There will be mass salvations and instant changes in the souls of many youth, many homosexuals, and even those who follow false doctrines. This is not just talking about revivals, but a habitation of God on the earth. 


Prepare yourselves, know God more, spend time developing a relationship with the One who made you and sent you. Rise up and embrace the greatness waiting to be revealed in you.

A good word from Steve Schultz

Steve Schultz, Founder and President of The Elijah List says:

 As odd as it may seem, many people in the Body of Christ are completely missing the Voice and the direction of God about our President, Donald J. Trump.

     What do I mean when I say they are missing it?

     I mean, many write to us and, in one way or another, they are expecting our president to act as if he is the Pastor in Chief of the United States. This is NOT the will of God and those words and those thoughts are NOT COMING FROM GOD. President Trump is not our Pastor in Chief. That role belongs to the Good Shepherd Himself, Jesus Christ. . .

 Strong Christians should, long ago, have QUIT JUDGING THIS PRESIDENT (or any president) simply because they don't like his language or his approach to Twitter or anything else. The only discernment going on should involve these:

1)What policies is this president putting into place?
2)What is God saying in this hour for this president (or any president)?
3)What is God saying TO YOU about how you must pray?
4)What is God saying about what is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to DO with the revelation He gives you?

"20 Prophetic Declarations for 2020 - You Will Eat the Fruit of Your Mouth" Ben Lim

This is a great list of proclamations we need to be making over our lives.  Doesn't the Word say "we have what we say?"  Isn't it time to be saying these things about ourselves?

As we have now entered into a new decade of 2020 and beyond, the Lord is assigning the right words to fill your mouth and is bringing to you the right, God-ordained people to help you see and bring you into birthing, fruition and completion. 2020 is the year of fulfilled destinies and promises. Decree and declare these twenty prophetic words over your family and life and watch the Lord back them up and add blessings to you!
20 Declarations Into 2020
Declare these with me, the Holy Spirit and the unction of faith:
1) I am the head and not the tail (Deuteronomy 28:13).
I will grow in favor with God and with man. The hand of the Lord will be evidently distinguished upon my life. "But because My servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows Me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it" (Numbers 14:24).
2) I will be an owner and not just a tenant or renter.
I will own land, gain properties, possess buildings, assets and inheritances. I am faithful in the little and over the much that God has and will be giving me (Luke 16:10).
3) I will be healthy and whole in every way; mind, body, soul and spirit.
Every part of my being is covered by the Blood of Jesus. I take part in the divine communion of the Blood and body of Jesus. He is my sustenance. I am strong in the might of the Lord.
4) All sickness, infirmity, and disease will be far away from me and my family.
Every cell, fabric, bone, tissue and molecule is renewed in the name of Jesus. "...If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you" (Exodus 15:26).
5) I am the lender and not the borrower.
I will have more than enough, for He is my El Shaddai. I will graciously give and lend to the poor and to those around me. I am a contributor and a conduit for the Kingdom of God (Deuteronomy 28:12).
6) My whole entire family will be saved!
Every prodigal will return, the backslidden will repent, and the lost will be found! As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:15). "They replied, 'Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved – you and your household'" (Acts 16:31). My family belongs to the Lord.
7) Whatever I commit unto the Lord will prosper (Proverbs 16:3).
Everything that I put my hands to will succeed! The Spirit of multiplication will flow in all of my endeavors. Goodness, abundance and mercy follow me all the days of my life (Psalm 23:6)! All of my steps are ordained by the Lord (Psalm 37:23).
8) I will walk as a sign and wonder on this earth (Isaiah 8:18).
I live in the realm of continual suddenlies, God-surprises, signs, wonders, and miracles. Living in the supernatural is the biblical will of God for my life. I will overflow with the miracles of God!
9) I am surrounded by the Lord of Hosts and by the hosts of Heaven.
Angels are around me and the glory of the Lord is my rear guard (Psalm 91). The Lord protects me and His angels will not allow my feet to slip. I release angels to watch over my loved ones and belongings.
10) Every single one of my gifts will be activated, mature and effective in Jesus' name.
I will be fully equipped by the grace of the Lord and I will be a deadly weapon and instrument of righteousness in the hands of our God.
11) I will be the greatest soul winner!
He who wins souls is wise (Daniel 12:3)! God has given me a passion for the lost and for souls. I will help to fulfill the Great Commission and re-present Jesus here on the earth. May I be the healing hands and serving feet of Jesus wherever I go, at any time.
12) I will continually have clear 2020 vision, insight, hindsight and foresight.
The Lord will anoint my eyes with eye salve (Revelation 3:18) and I shall see with eagle-eye vision from Heaven's perspective. The Lord is my light and my salvation; He will help me to see all of my blind spots, any possible traps, snares and setups that the enemy may have placed. I am more than an overcomer.
13) I break every single curse of witchcraft, hex, vex, voodoo, magic, black magic, confusion, Jezebel, every soul tie and any spirit of jealousy and envy.
I break off any kind of evil and foul thing that has tried to attach itself to me, my soul, my body, my family, my assets or my destiny. I am free in Jesus' name! Every single generational blessing will manifest in my life! No evil thing shall have a hold on me.
14) Every single God-ordained destiny door for my life will be opened and remain open by the hand of the Lord.
The keys of the Kingdom are mine (Matthew 16:19). I close every single demonic door of distraction, confusion and disillusionment, and I open the doors, windows and gates of Heaven over my life. I live in an open Heaven.
15) I will only be surrounded by the Lord's anointed.
I attract the friends of God. I attract the true sent ones and servants of the Lord. I will root and plant myself in a true Acts community of Bible-believing, Spirit-filled disciples. "Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers" (Psalm 1:1).
16) The gift of prayer and intercession will be deep and strong.
I am Your watchman, oh Lord. Help me to pray Your assignments and pray until something happens! Anoint me with the gift and oil of intercession. I will pray the prayers of Jesus. "Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven" (Matthew 6:10).
17) I will be the most generous, humble, genuine, giving, present, loving, serving, patient, understanding, kind and compassionate person in my inner-circle, and to those around me. My character will reflect the nature of Jesus. I vow to be like Christ every single day and moment of this year and of my life (Ephesians 4:23-32, Colossians 3:12-17).
18) I will walk in the spirit of wisdom and discernment. Give me the spirit of the fear of the Lord.
Help me to lead and to govern the people you have entrusted to me to shepherd, to bring great honor and fame to Your name. "Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of Yours?" (2 Chronicles 1:10).
19) Ignite the fire of first-love within me every single day (Revelation 2:4).
May my heart be burning with love and may my heart be so tender and brokenhearted and sensitive to You, oh Lord. I am a lover of Your presence. I am a true worshiper. "Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you..." (James 4:8).
20) I am Your beloved child and there is nothing that can ever separate me from Your love.
"Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died – more than that, who was raised to life – is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
"As it is written: 'For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.' No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:34-39)
I am Your favored child, forever!

Amen to this Robert Jeffress Comment!

      Robert Jeffress, pastor of the 14,000 member First Baptist Church of Dallas TX, when asked how he could vote for Donald Trump replied, "I did not vote for someone who lived the Christian life, I voted for someone who would protect my right to live the Christian life."    

      Donald Trump has been doing exactly that!  More so than any president in our history.
     And he is a friend to Israel, which is probably more important than anything else he does.  God says those who bless Israel, He will bless.
     If you have been a never-Trumper please consider the facts.  Do your own research, don't rely on the mainstream media.  Look at the promises Donald Trump made when he was campaigning for President. And then look at how he set about fulfilling them from the day he was elected.  He has been appointing conservative judges who interpret the Constitution instead of legislating their opinions.  He has removed regulations that have restricted businesses so they could thrive.  We have the lowest unemployed number in decades.  There are lists of things--into the hundreds-- he has accomplished (which can be found with a little research) even though he has had more obstruction/persecution than any president ever.
     It is imperative that we get out to vote for him this year, or all he has done could be lost.

Jalapeno Mushrooms, Revisited

Happy New Year!  I pray your New Year will be filled with joy and an awareness of how much God loves you!

     And now for the reason of my post:  I know, I know!  This is a lot of posting on one recipe but sometimes it takes experimenting to reach perfection. 😀.  I made the Jalapeno Popper Mushrooms again last night for a party, and because I forgot the ingredients included bacon and didn't have any, I decided to make them without it.  Absolutely fabulous!  We thought they were better --if that is possible, since we loved the others!
      Below is the recipe that seems to me to be perfection.  Since I had some of the filling left, I didn't want to waste it so put it in a small dish and cooked it with the stuffed mushrooms.  This was excellent on crackers.  It was so good that I believe to save time both for prep and cooking, the mushrooms could all be chopped, added to the rest of the ingredients and then baked as a dip.

Jalapeno Popper Mushrooms

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 8 large mushrooms, or 16 small, stems
  • removed and chopped and caps reserved
  • 1 clove garlic, minced  
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, ribs and seeds       
  •        removed, finely chopped (or use     
  •        canned, which I prefer.)
  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, 
  •       softened
  • 1/4 c. mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons shredded Cheddar 
  •       cheese
  • 3 T. Parmesan Cheese
  • sea salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.

  1. To prevent mushrooms from being soggy, remove stems and place upside down in cooking dish.  Bake 15 minutes till they release water before stuffing. 

  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the chopped mushroom stems, garlic, and jalapeno; (can add a few seeds if you would like it spicier) cook and stir until the mushrooms release moisture and soften, about 10 minutes. Transfer the mushroom mixture to a bowl, and stir in the cream cheese, mayonnaise, cheddar & Parmesan cheese.  Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the cheese mixture generously into the reserved mushroom caps, and arrange the stuffed caps on the prepared baking dish.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese begins to brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

"This Is Your Year of Divine Justice and Favor" Lana Vawser

From the Elijah List:  A good encouraging word for 2020 given by Lana Vawser.

2020 will be a year of greater manifestation of the divine justice of God. In encounters with Jesus and dreams, the Lord has been speaking to me about His justice. I have been seeing the word "justice" and a gavel of the Lord's divine justice coming down on the earth and in the lives of Believers.
The Lord showed me injustices that had taken many different forms, but something stood out to me. The biggest injustices that many people are facing have been coming in opposition against some of the greatest promises God has released. Many of these injustices have been happening for a very long time and/or happened a long time ago, and some have happened recently, and people are still living under the ramifications and effects of those injustices. They are hindering God's people from moving forward, especially from running with strength, joy and peace into 2020.
The Lord showed me that His gavel of justice IS coming down. It's not a "maybe." The Lord is going to demonstrate TO YOU and THROUGH YOU what His power and divine justice looks like.
In my dream the other night, I saw the Lord lifting shame off of His people. These injustices that many of God's people have faced have brought such discouragement, shame, pain and heartache to the lives of Believers, but the Lord is bringing healing; He is bringing breakthrough and recompense.
"Gaze upon Him, join your life with His, and joy will come. Your faces will glisten with glory. You'll never wear that shame-face again." (Psalm 34:5, TPT)
The divine justice of God is going to be demonstrated in the lives of individuals, cities and nations. It is time for many Believers and the world to see what the divine justice of God looks like (Isaiah 61:8).
You Have Been Dealing with Spiritual Opposition
As I pondered this before the Lord I heard Him say, "It is the enemy that My people are dealing with. It is spiritual opposition."
I then began to see many of God's people trying to 'work things out' or make sense of these injustices in the natural; even trying to look for ways to fix the injustices in the natural. There's nothing wrong with working in the natural, but if we are trying to fight a spiritual battle with natural means, we will not find victory. I heard the Lord say that this must be dealt with in the spirit because it's a spiritual issue.
Not only is the Lord going to bring forth His divine justice and breakthrough for you, He is also breaking forth WITHIN you. He is releasing in you a roar of divine justice that says, "I WILL NOT SETTLE FOR ANYTHING ELSE LESS THAN WHAT THE WORD OF GOD PROMISES ME!"
This really is the era of bold and ferocious faith. I want to encourage you, sow your strength and sow your efforts into your secret place with the Lord; He will continue to show you what is actually happening in the spirit.
Divine Partnership
The Lord showed me there has been a "misdiagnoses" in the lives of many Believers where they have thought, "This is the reason for the injustice," but the Lord is actually going to show you what is really going on in the spirit behind this injustice. And when you see the spiritual opposition and the assignment and WHY the assignment is there, you are going to release a great roar of faith and victory - a roar that will not allow the enemy to take your land.
The Lord wants you to see His power and His strength. He wants you to see how He is going to take things down for you, but He is also wanting you to see YOUR authority in Him to use the Word of God. He wants you to use strategies He releases to you in the secret place to dismantle in the spirit what is coming against you.
This is the era of understanding the divine PARTNERSHIP between God and man; what it means to partner with Jesus, to see the Holy Spirit move upon your faith – a faith that is rooted in what HE has spoken – and then to see HIM do the miraculous.
2020: A Year of Major Favor
In the last days of 2019 and into 2020 you are going to see this declaration of the Lord over these injustices: "THE MATTER IS SETTLED."
I then heard the Lord say, "RULED IN YOUR FAVOR." You are going to step into the inheritance, promise and provision that the Lord has for you. Anything that was taken will be handed back sevenfold. Whatever was broken will be restored. Whatever was hurt, will be healed. You WILL inherit and occupy the land as you partner with Him and stand.
2020 will be a year of major increase in favor. Much of the battle and opposition that many of you are fighting is happening because of the FAVOR God is going to increase over your life, and because of the assignments that God has for you in 2020. The Lord is breaking you free from these injustices because you cannot run in 2020 and in all He has for you while you are held to these things. You are going to move into the greatest healing, deliverance and freedom of your life thus far.
You need to hear this today: 2020 isn't just another year. It is a year that is completely different to any other year that you have walked in. This is the beginning of a new era for you. All Hell has broken loose over the promises God has given you because 2020 will be a year where EVERYTHING changes. Everything will be affected by you stepping into your God-given destiny.
In the fires you have faced and the Goliaths you have stood before in 2019 your heart has been prepared. Character and humility have been forged by the hand of the Lord in the trials you have endured. God has taught you much and forged you as you have surrendered to Him and moved in obedience to His Word.
Not only will He roll out a red carpet of FAVOR, He will also roll out restoration and redemption. Through the favor that God is placing upon you, you will walk in some of the greatest restoration and redemption of your life.
He Is Weaving Dreams into Being
The Lord showed me that MANY people have been heading toward the end of 2019 and into 2020 with hope deferred. This is NOT your portion and this is NOT how you will remain.
"When hope's dream seems to drag on and on, the delay can be depressing. But when at last your dream comes true, life's sweetness will satisfy your soul." (Proverbs 13:12, TPT)
I heard the Lord say, "I am weaving dreams into being, they are about to begin."
In the last days of 2019 and into 2020 and beyond, you are going to see the Lord begin to weave into being the dreams that He has given you.
When He spoke this, what struck me in the spirit was the sense that He isn't just weaving one dream into being. He is weaving MULTIPLE DREAMS into being. He is weaving dreams He's already given you, which you know about, but He will add more. As He does this, do not push them aside thinking, "But the first dream I have hasn't come to pass yet, how can I dream about another?" Be intentional to thank the Lord and store it with intentionality in your heart, pondering it like Mary. Ponder these dreams in trust of the Lord, no matter what your heart or emotions scream. Be intentional to sit at the feet of Jesus and ask Him to speak into these places.
2020 and Beyond – a Year to Tend Many Vineyards
I had a vision and I saw many of God's people who have been faithful with the vineyards that He has given them. They have stewarded with purity, integrity and humility. It doesn't mean they've gotten everything right, dotting all their "i's" and crossing all their "t's," but their heart position and place of intimacy with Jesus has been one of purity, integrity, humility and obedience. There will be a TENDING OF MANY VINEYARDS coming to the faithful in 2020 and beyond.
In my vision, I saw these faithful ones tending many vineyards, and they were singing with SUCH JOY, having the time of their lives. The Lord then showed me that in 2019 they have had much trouble and opposition while tending the vineyards. It has been such hard work and a time of "push through," but they have continued to tend with obedience and faithfulness to the Lord, following His voice and ways.
The Lord spoke over them:
"The hard toiling is coming to an end. Your faithfulness and obedience to Me have brought you into a place of great reward and increase. Now I shall entrust you with much. The enemy attempted to ruin your vineyard that I had you place your hands, but you remained. Well done! The season has now changed and I am moving you into a place of tending many vineyards with greater empowerment of My Spirit, ease, joy, peace and favor. You shall know abundance in these vineyards like you have never known before.
"You are now moving into the vineyards of harvest and the vineyards of increase. You may have felt like you were in a famine in the tending of the last vineyards because of how hard it has been, but now in this major shift that is taking place, the vineyards you have been toiling will suddenly come to life with greater abundance and fruitfulness in exponential increase, and you will move into new vineyards you never even imagined. This is the era where My people will see how faithfulness to Me and My voice in PURITY is rewarded."
