Window Washing

I have been washing windows this week.  A pretty big job because we have lots of windows in a two-story house.  I tried a couple of different home-made formulas for the washing solution to use on the outside windows and decided this one is the best:
                1/2 bottle Jet-Dry or other rinse agent
                1/4 cup ammonia
                4 Tbs. alcohol
                1/4 to 1/2 cup dishwasher powder
                2 gallons of hot water

On the easily reachable first floor windows  I used a car washing mop.  I saw this recommended on a blog and found it very helpful and effective.  On the higher windows I have an extension pole and a microfiber scrubber (used with a squeegee to wash the inside windows) which I attached to the pole.  The method is to first spray the windows with water, scrub them with the solution, and then rinse by spraying again.  After trial & error, I found that you can't rinse too much.  A couple of the first windows I did had streaks from the solution running down, so I redid them.

This is an excellent method for a house with only first floor windows; for the second story I seemed to be taking a shower with every rinse, but the results were worth getting wet.  Otherwise, I have the crank out windows which can be washed from the inside but it is a cumbersome job.

Inside I use vinegar and water with the above mentioned scrubber and a squeegee.

Such a great feeling to have sparkling windows!

Have you heard of DuckDuckGo?  I was reading something yesterday that mentioned it as a search engine that does not track you.  I was intrigued.  The more I read about privacy, the more I realize we have very little, so I would like to do all I can to preserve what little privacy I still have.

I watched this youtube video by Aral Balkan: "Free Is A Lie" which was linked by the person who recommended DuckDuckGo.  Eye-opening!  All of this is way above my pay grade, but I am trying to do my part and be as informed as I can be.  So I installed DuckDuckGo.

Check it out and see what you think.

"Three Prophetic Words to Position You in the Year 5778" Jamie Rohrbaugh

      I love reading encouraging words.  That's why I post them here, so I can find them again.  This word posted on The Elijah List today from Jamie Rohrbaugh speaks directly to my heart.  I have been one of those who has wondered if my time with the Lord has really been fruitful.  I often don't sense His presence and my mind wanders, but because I love Him so, I persevere.  It is exciting to receive a word that He hears and is about to answer.
     In our small group, we have been "putting a demand on the Holy Spirit" by seeking Him and asking for words as we pray.  And I believe we have not exercised our authority nearly enough in declaring God's word for our families, neighbors, city, etc., so I agree heartily with this word.

As you may know, the Jewish New Year began at sundown on Wednesday, September 20. The Lord gave me three prophetic words for 5778, and I believe they will encourage you! 
Here is what the Lord has told me about Jewish year 5778:
1. Just in Time, Holy Spirit is Sending You a Double Portion Anointing
Many of you have felt like your anointing is gone. You have been through Hell and back, and your experience has left you feeling dry and uninspired.
After praying about this, I looked out onto my back porch. I often see doves there, but usually only one dove or, at most, two at a time. However, on a recent morning, I saw not one or two, but FOUR doves on my porch. Immediately, the Lord spoke to me and told me that He is sending a double restoration of the anointing to His people. Furthermore, this double portion anointing is coming to you—NOW.
This is not one of those prophecies that you have to wait three years to see fulfilled. God has already begun pouring out the first drops of His refreshing, and you will quickly find yourself under a deluge of healing rain as you believe Him for it.
As it says in Joel 2:23, "Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God; for He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you—the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month."
"Expect God to work miracles on your behalf this year."
If you need that double anointing, the Lord told me to tell you these things:
• All the anointing and inspiration that has been stolen from you is NOW going to be restored to you double.
• You will have twice as many inspired ideas as before.
• You will hear God twice as well.
• You will be anointed to prophesy twice as much as you were before.
• You will have twice as many supernatural encounters as you EVER had before.
Beloved, you are not dead. You are not even sleeping. You have been in a time of resting and healing, and now your spirit is going to roar back to life in ways you have never seen before. Hallelujah!
If you need this double portion anointing, put a demand on God to flow through you. In situations like this, the anointing works like a pump. You have to prime a pump in order for it to produce flow. If you have lost your flow, go ahead and prime your pump. Put a demand on Holy Spirit specifically to fill you with His flow and anointing.
Examples of ways you could do this include:
• Asking Holy Spirit for a word of knowledge or prophecy that you can share to bless someone.
• Doing something creative and asking Holy Spirit to flow through you to accomplish His creative work.
• Praying in the spirit over your day, then immediately carrying out what the Lord gives you unction to do as you prayed in the spirit.
As you exercise your faith to put a demand on God, you will find Him ready, willing, and eager to answer you with that double portion anointing He has promised. (Photo via Pixabay)
2. In 5778, Exercise Your Governmental Authority More Than You Ever Have Before
Psalm 149:6-9 says, "Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment—this honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord!"
As God's son or daughter, you have the honor of joining with the people of God to:
• Execute vengeance upon the nations, and punishments upon the peoples.
• Bind kings with chains, and nobles with fetters of iron.
• Execute the written will of God upon all nations and peoples.
In 5778, it will become increasingly important for you to use this authority to see God's will carried out in your sphere and around the world.
How do you exercise your authority? Two ways:
• By letting the high praise of God be in your mouth.
• By wielding the two-edged sword, which is God's Word (confessing it verbally).
For decades, God has been renewing His people's understanding of how important it is to confess His Word out loud. By this point, mature Believers should be well-versed in the power of speaking God's Word. In 5778, it is time to move from simple understanding to very purposeful action in this area.
All around the globe right now, situations exist which need the governmental interference of God. The situation in North Korea stands out to me as one of the most important challenges that God's people need to address now. However, many other situations both in your house and around the world will benefit from God's intervention as well.
For example, think of the impact God's Word could have upon:
• Your state of mind.
• Your marriage.
• Your finances.
• The government of the country in which you reside.
• The unreached people groups who still need to hear the Gospel, and more.
If you would like to receive all that God has for you, I strongly encourage you to set aside 10-15 minutes daily to praise God and confess His Word out loud. Confess His Word over yourself and over world situations that concern you.
"Put a demand on Holy Spirit specifically to fill you with His flow and anointing."
If you will do this, you will be exercising the governmental authority that God gave you as His child, and you will see dramatic results. 
Remember that Isaiah 55:10-11 says: "For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it."
3. Expect Your Intimacy with God to Produce Long-awaited and Visible Results This Year
Many of you have been sowing and sowing into the secret place of intimacy with God. You have not been doing this to get any material thing, but rather out of a true love for God. Your heart has been pure, and your hands have been clean.
Despite the fact that you have been truly seeking God for His face and not just His hand, you have not seen the results manifested in your life that you have been hoping to see. God's Word provides many great and excellent promises about how God will bless you if you diligently seek Him, but you have not yet seen many of those promises fulfilled.
Your time of waiting has not gotten you down, but you have wondered in your spirit. Like the Psalmist and the saints in Heaven, you have cried, "How long, O Lord, faithful and true?"
Psalm 13:1-2 says, "How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?"
Although your faith in God has not wavered, you have wondered these same things. But the Lord told me: 5778 is the year of the Joshuas.
Psalm 12:5 says, "'For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now I will arise,' says the Lord; 'I will set him in the safety for which he yearns.'"
Like Joshua, you have lingered long inside the tent of God's presence. You have not departed from His ways nor from seeking His face. His presence is your greatest love, and serving Him is your supreme pleasure.
And you are about to be elevated. You are about to see the manifestation of many promises that God has spoken to you. The things He has been whispering in your ear will soon become visible for all to see. Father God will put the fear of the Lord upon all those around you, and they will tremble at your approach. (Photo via freeimages)
As the Lord did in Joshua 5:1"So it was, when all the kings of the Amorites who were on the west side of the Jordan, and all the kings of the Canaanites who were by the sea, heard that the Lord had dried up the waters of the Jordan from before the children of Israel until we had crossed over, that their heart melted; and there was no spirit in them any longer because of the children of Israel." He will do for you in 5778.
This is the year of Joshua. Expect God to work miracles on your behalf this year. Expect His anointing to rest upon you. Expect the Commander of the army of the Lord to appear to you in person. Expect a supernatural paving of the way in every situation you encounter.
5778 is the culmination of many long-awaited promises. It is a year that opens a new season of healing, wholeness, and freedom; a new era of taking territory for the King; and a new age of government for all of God's people who will. Will you exercise your faith to receive, and to move forward with God? (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Hank Kunneman – Mexico Earthquake

This word given through Hank Kunneman seems to be coming to pass:

"Prophecy Unfolding: Hank Kunneman – Mexico Earthquake"
The Elijah List

Pictured: Hank and Brenda Kunneman
Another major earthquake occurred in Mexico on Tuesday, September 19, this time near Mexico City. What makes this Mexico City earthquake so unique is the timing. Tuesday's earthquake (September 19) occurred on the 32nd anniversary to the day when Mexico City tragically endured the earthquake that resulted in thousands of lives lost, on September 19, 1985Tuesday's earthquake also came less than two weeks after the most powerful earthquake in Mexico in a century.

People in Mexico are living in fear. The New York Times quotes a man in Mexico City who stated the following: "'It's like Sodom and Gomorrah, like God is angry at us,' said Jorge Ortiz Diaz, a 66-year-old government employee who was assisting with the rescues, his eyes filling with tears."

It is important that the Body of Christ knows that God is not out to destroy life. John 10:10 (ESV), "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."

Hank Kunneman prophesied the following on August 27, 2017 – 11 days before the biggest earthquake in Mexico in over a century on September 7, as well as before Tuesday's earthquake in Mexico City. This prophecy contains the redemptive plan of God involving Mexico, Canada and the United States. Note the connection between the shakings in Mexico and political reform. Also remember the capital of Mexico is Mexico City.

Prophecy: August 27, 2017
Prophetic Word Given by Pastor Hank Kunneman
Note from Hank Kunneman: As we continue to pray for those affected by the earthquake in Mexico, we are posting this excerpt again from a prophecy a few weeks ago. With these terrible casualties and so many suffering it's a call to pray, pray, pray! We believe this prophetic word gives us some prayer direction and insight into God's plan for the good that will arise from the turmoil. To our brothers and sisters in Mexico, our hearts are stretched out toward you!
The ground will shake in Mexico that will bring new leadership and a great reform – Hank Kunneman - August 27, 2017

The ground will shake in Mexico and it shall be reported, "Why is the soil of this country shaken?" Because, God says, "There is a tremendous reform that shall come out of Mexico, and I'm going to deal with the corruption, the dishonesty, the lewdness that has come out of you and your government.
"I'm going to do something very unusual where I will raise up leadership. A new leadership shall arise out of you, Mexico, and it shall be a leadership that will say, 'We shall remove the waste places, we shall remove the corruption from our midst, and we shall join our hands to the man and with the land to our north.'
"Then watch, there shall be a cord of three strands that will be suddenly established between Mexico to you, United States, and you, Canada...and it shall be North America the Great!"

David Herzog: As 5778 Begins: ...

A great and timely word from David Herzog:

This month is the beginning of HUGE shifts that are about to happen in your life. How you make this transition right now will determine if you go through this season with great blessing and promotion, or loss and having to go around the mountain one more time.
We have just come out of the month of Av on the Hebrew calendar. This is a testing month as it always has been since Israel was in the wilderness. Between now and the fall feasts there are things to watch out for.
Many have been in the testing time as their pressures increase and God starts to deal with emotions, thoughts, and hurts. The warfare often increases on multiple levels. How you pass this testing time determines if your new season will be that of your "Promised Land" or another season in the desert. 
"Dear friends don't be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if some strange thing were happening to you." 1 Peter 4:12 
"Start to enter into the major shift and glory visitation during this prophetic Biblical season so God can transition you with new favor for the coming year for awakening in your life, America and the nations."
Many are suddenly alarmed at the surprise trials, betrayals, testings and attacks that seem to come in this season. Know that you are not alone. The enemy often uses psychological and emotional warfare to get you into bitterness, anger, fear and unforgiveness, etc. He knows that if He can get you in the flesh you can hinder your destiny for yet another season.
Once you realize this is only a test then it's much easier to go through it. Embrace the Cross. This means, embrace the testing, love people, forgive those who betray you, repent if you have wronged others or held grudges and out of hurt, cut off from people. Stay in the spirit, keep your joy, stay in the Word and keep declaring the goodness of God.
When You Have Done All, Stand
Then when you have done all to stand, just stand. When the dust settles you will be in a new place in many areas of your life. If you give in to the pressures and do things in the flesh, you end up going around the same mountain and trials just with a different set of people and situations.
Getting out of Egypt is not the same as getting Egypt out of you. Moses missed out on entering the Promised Land due to unresolved anger. We can't bring the same old issues into the new. To get the victor's crown in this race we are all running we have to let them go and "...lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us..." (Hebrews 12:1).
We have heard so many stories recently from pastors and leaders, of people who suddenly just quit their job or positions the same day with no warning or notice, leaving people in a mess. Unfortunately, this allows the enemy to steal their blessing by default. This is a huge red flag indicating people are thinking more about self and did not pass the testings and pressures God's way. Instead, they just bailed off their "cross" and season of testing without transitioning in God's timing with love and peace so they could be blessed in their transition.
Anything not done in love that hurts others for the sake of relieving our own pain to get out of situations God put us in is sin. Often the justifications people come up with almost never pass the love test. (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)
For those of you who did do that, the only solution and the good news is, you can repent (and make it right with those people, businesses, or ministries you betrayed out of self-preservation, especially now in this season as we are coming into the season of repentance leading up to Yum Kippur).
Stay in the Spirit
For those of you in the fire of testing, stay in the spirit with praise and worship. Keep your mind clear by declaring the Word of God and prophetic words over your life.
Stay in the spirit of love which always forgives, releases hurt, thinks the best, hopes the best, believes the best of others, and does all for the benefit of others and God. If you stay in the right spirit even during your trials the next verse is the promise God gives you.
"Instead, because you are participating in the sufferings of the Messiah, keep on rejoicing, so that you may be glad and shout for joy when His glory is revealed."1 Peter 4:13
We have been in full-time ministry for over 25 years and have seen this same pattern play out over and over. We have seen the amazing favor and promotions for those who did it right, including when we transitioned to where we are now, and we have seen those who totally just reacted in the flesh and did things their way. It caused much loss in their life and callings, delaying things for years, when they were almost at the finish line of their next assignment and promotion.

aThere is a new glory, favor, power, promotion and blessing coming at the end of your trial as we come into the feasts starting this coming weekend! This is the great news! If you have been in some major testing and trials, it means that the glory and breakthrough (if you pass the test with the right heart) will be greater than the trial you just went through!
The King is in the Field
Some months it seems like its harder to connect with God and get into His high glory as other months. That season is about to change as we are now in the month of Elul after the hard testing month of the month of Av. Yet now, we are about to enter the exciting fall feasts!
The month of Elul means "the King is in the field." This means it's a month that is easier to access the highest intimacy and glory of God. God seems to be much nearer to many during this upcoming seasonal portal as many suddenly start to get major visitation from the King and prayers suddenly seem to be answered quickly. This month is a time to fix what has been broken or left undone in many areas of our life.
According to "Elul is the sixth of the twelve months of the Jewish calendar...Elul is called 'the month of repentance,' 'the month of mercy,' and 'the month of forgiveness.' Elul follows the two previous months of Tammuz and Av, the months of the two great sins of Israel, the sin of the golden calf and the sin of the spies...This is the month that 'the King is in the field'. All can approach Him, and He shines His countenance upon everyone."
"Many have been in the testing time as their pressures increase and God starts to deal with emotions, thoughts, and hurts. The warfare often increases on multiple levels."
It's the season to repent of failures from the past season and make it right with those that you have hurt out of offense. The Bible even says to leave your gift at the altar and go make things right with your brother, then your prayers will be answered.
This is a time when God comes into your field or your area of your life, calling and situation, to make Himself accessible and surprise you with His presence. Whereas in other seasons it might have seemed harder to access the same level of closeness to Him as it is in this new season.
A Time of Good Fortune
Elul is also the month connected to the tribe of Gad. This is a good, transitional month, being the last month of the old year, which precedes the "fall feasts." The month of Gad also means "good fortune." If we transition correctly we should have an expectation of good fortune throughout the month.
Rewards will begin to manifest according to what you have done. That's why it's so important to deal with old sins, hurts and issues now before the fall feasts start so you stay in God's favor, blessings and especially intimacy with Him. Doing so will carry you until the next major season during Passover. This is the month to be sure your emotions and actions are submitted to the Lord.
We are entering the year 5778. Eight is the number of new beginnings! Rosh Hashanah or Head of the Year this September is one of those super prophetic seasons where God speaks to His people in a very powerful way. Many prophetic ministers and Believers receive great heavenly visitation and huge favor and blessing during this time when they set time aside to be with Him and His people together. We call these times "seasonal portals" – seasons of time where God promises to visit in a certain way if we just show up to the appointment.
Also in Heaven, huge things occur during these Kairos times. We have come to realize that when we sync on earth with Heaven at the same Kairos time when Heaven is celebrating these specific seasons, we get a huge download often more than other times in the year. The reason is because those are specific seasons God set up where things are occurring in the heavens. (Photo via Flickr)
Knowing what God is about to do and positioning yourself for it is the key to riding the wave of God's move on the earth with great blessing and favor.
Prepare for Major Shifts
It's one of the times that God promises to visit and bless us in an extraordinary way. It's also the season where major shifts occur in the earth. God promises to do nothing before revealing it to His servants the prophets.
Start to enter into the major shift and glory visitation during this prophetic Biblical season so God can transition you with new favor for the coming year for awakening in your life, America and the nations.
Another thing is to give God an offering to worship Him during the upcoming feasts/seasonal portals coming as we enter into the first month of the new year on God's calendar. During "Head of the Year" which we are about to celebrate, God promises to bless us greatly when we bring Him a sacrificial offering. This, combined with our repentance, forgiveness, praise, worship, faith and offerings causes huge blessings to come back to us! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

    Have you ever heard of amla?  I hadn't until I watched Module 4 of the Square One cancer treatment.  I thought you also might be interested to know about it.  It is also called Indian gooseberry and is consumed extensively in India.  Amla is labeled a Superfood here in the U.S. (maybe other countries, too) because it contains so many anti-oxidants. It has some very good publicity online.  One study showed it lowered blood sugar in diabetics better than the leading medication that is usually prescribed.
    Here is an interesting article I found if you want to know more about it.  Here is an interesting video.
    We have been inspired to eat better--lots more whole foods since watching the Square One series.  Adding amla powder to our diet also sounds like a good idea so we have ordered some from Amazon.    
     I will let you know if there is any noticeable change in our health.

Going Home

     Country Guy & I have been in Rochester, MN, at the Mayo Clinic for a few days for checkups.  Today we have our last appointments and then will be heading home.  It will be so good to be home!  We have been gone more than 5 weeks throughout this summer so I have been having a very difficult time keeping up with the house and my gardens, not to mention the Linn Park gardens, especially in this hot dry summer when watering has been important to keep things alive!
     I am ready for a routine.  Of course, harvest will be beginning soon so that will mess up my routine again.  Guess I'm not supposed to plan too far ahead and just take things as they come.
     I think I have heard that before--Live in the present, take one day at a time.  It is a difficult lesson for me, as I love to plan and prepare.

The SQUARE ONE: Healing Cancer Coaching Program --Free video access

    I received this email from Mark Virkler's Communion With God Ministries.   I have signed up to watch the free videos (only available this month for free beginning Sept. 12)--what can it hurt?--and hopefully it will help me get back to eating well and taking care of my body. I thought you might be interested so decided to post the info.  

  "If you're concerned about cancer, or a loved one is facing cancer right now, I've got an invaluable resource to share with you today….

Let me introduce you to 13-year cancer survivor, Chris Wark.
Chris was diagnosed with advanced metastatic cancer in 2003, two days before Christmas, at just 26 years old.

When faced with intimidating odds of survival, Chris did the unthinkable…

He turned down chemotherapy.
His doctors told him he was “Insane”, and had very little support, but he knew he had to take a different path to restore his health. 

His rationale was:
"If my body created it, maybe my body can heal it..."
And he was right.

Today… over 13 years later, Chris is alive and well, and cancer free, and he’s sharing how he and many others have healed with nutrition and natural therapies.

Chris created a powerful 10-part video series called…
The SQUARE ONE: Healing Cancer Coaching Program
And you can watch all 10 Modules free online. (details below)

The information he shares in SQUARE ONE covers the exact strategies he used to heal stage III cancer.

These are the same methods that many others have used to heal cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and many other chronic diseases.

Chris's SQUARE ONE program takes you step-by-step through the healing process in a simple straightforward way that is humorous, hopeful, encouraging and empowering, without being overwhelming or confusing.

There's nothing else like this and I am so excited to be the first to to share it with you!

While you're there, you can register to watch ALL 10 SQUARE ONE Modules FREE online in September.

If you're a patient, a caregiver, or you're serious about prevention, this course is for you. Don't miss it!

Watch the 3-minute video, read the incredible testimonials, get registered for free access, and tune in to watch this awesome series.

I'll see you there!

Great advice from "The Patriot Post"

"... one is left to wonder how many outrages must be endured before such conservatives realize an incrementalist Left's appetite for power and control is never satiated?
It's time for decent Americans to fight back, using that same kind of incrementalism. Skip a Hollywood movie or concert. Pass on an NFL game, or stop patronizing progressive corporations that consider themselves the nation's moral arbiters. Cancel a newspaper or cable company subscription.
No one has to do everything. But Americans should understand that small individual efforts make a collectively big difference. As progressives like to say, it's time to live "woke."
Let's make courage fashionable again."

"Harvey, Houston, Hope and Joel's Army" by Johnny Enlow

    I am always impressed, enlightened and encouraged by words through Johnny Enlow.  This one is no exception.  It was sent from The Elijah List today.

As I write this post the rain is still falling in Houston. What reportedly is the worst rainstorm in US history continues to drench Texas and now Louisiana before it heads north to perhaps flood other states. In a matter of a few days, more than 50 inches of rain have fallen. Surely no city on the earth could take that much water in such a short time without dire consequences. As of this moment, the low loss of life has to be considered miraculous. Yet, a preliminary estimate has the damages of this disaster exceeding 50 billion dollars with a timetable of years before "normality" will ever come back to Houston, if at all. Even early in this process I believe that the Lord has something to say: Houston will rise again and be famed as a City of Hope—but I will get to that in a moment.
First, I will address some relevant questions being asked:
Was it Judgment from God?
Suddenly prophecies of "judgment" have surfaced everywhere attaching Houston's flooding to the large abortion center they have there or the fact that they had a gay mayor. As I ponder on that, I wonder why the city would not be flooded WHILE the gay mayor was still in office, and not sure why God couldn't figure out how to isolate the abortion center with the flooding. If He is into saving innocent lives, why is He allowing so much harm to thousands of innocents (with some deaths) in order to teach that lesson? Could He not have just hit the abortion clinic with lightning bolts and made the message a little clearer? 
Why does God destroy the livelihood of thousands of innocents to judge the sin of a few? Even the "Old Testament God" wouldn't destroy Sodom and Gomorrah "if there were but 10 righteous." Yet, here He is wiping out a city of millions in order to get to the evil minority? Tragically this type of thinking represents the status quo thinking for so many Believers today. Sadly, it reveals our own broken perception of our Father, which we then confidently/defiantly pass on to others. For the record, I don't believe that this represents judgment from God. As Jesus told His own "judgment expectant" disciples in Luke 9:56 when they wanted to call down fire from Heaven on those who resisted God in the flesh (could there a greater offense?): "the Son of Man came not to destroy lives but to save lives."
Was it the Devil?
Steve ShultzWell, one thing we know is that the devil has a very reduced vision and mission statement and that is "to steal, kill and destroy." Any time there is anything stolen, anyone killed or anything destroyed, it is good to suspect his involvement. Furthermore, if people misbehaving (sin) gives him a legal right to destroy a city or nation, surely there is no city or nation in the world that is safe. However, though under substantial satanic duress, the world continues to expand its population, cities continue to grow, and even nations advance. Why is not every city with "abominable sinners" under water? If the answer to that question is that intercessors stem the judgment, then why were they ignored in Houston? I happen to know there are some good ones there. Now, I am not necessarily going to give a lot of neat and tidy answers to matters that there aren't neat and tidy answers for, but let me just tell you what I am hearing from the Lord: "Creation too has a voice."
When Creation Groans and Travails
Romans 8:22 says that "...creation groans and travails for the revealing of the sons of God." What it doesn't tell us is HOW creation groans and travails and what that looks like. I will suggest to you that many so-called natural disasters are neither God, satan or chance, but an expression of creation crying out for the children of God to be who they are supposed to be—so that creation itself can be what it is called to be. Romans 8:21 says that "...creation itself, will be brought into the glorious liberty of the sons of God."
I suppose in some way it could be considered "judgment" that we are not yet there, but it is not intended as judgment but rather a cry for freedomWe know that when Jesus died the earth shook and went dark, and that neither of these were connected to either an order from God or an involvement of satan. Added to this mystery of creation having a voice, is the fact that certain angels are given latitudes we don't fully know the limits to even if we have neat and tidy "angel doctrines". 
In Exodus 23:20-21, the Lord told Moses to tell the people to "not provoke" the angel that He was sending among them because if not he would not "pardon their transgressions." This angel was presumably Michael, and we are not told exactly what his "not pardoning" would look like. I do know that I was told by the Spirit some time back that territorial angels were being given orders to do what was necessary to bring their cities, regions and nations into alignment with their destiny. Ultimately, I believe we are going to see a lot more partnering between great angels and creation towards the reformation of cities and nations. 
If it strikes you as bizarre that creation would have intelligence, remember that at the quantum, subatomic particle level everything has its own distinct frequency and sound. That frequency and sound represents some level of communicating intelligence even if it is operationally different than those made directly in His image. 
Hurricane Harvey
I don't think there is any coincidence in the name that this storm was given. Harvey means "battle worthy" or "ready for war". The name stood out to me because last year I was shown by the Spirit a very great angel of "Harvest Glory" nicknamed Harvey. I talked about it in a word I released right before the AzusaNow event in Los Angeles ("AzusaNow: The Convergence of the Ages and the Harvest Glory Angel" posted on the Elijah List)—that I was shown that he was a great angel that had wide parameters of operation and that he was being released at another level at the stadium event. 
I had a couple people later contact me saying they saw this great angel there and described him similarly to how I described him, with one person even drawing what they saw. He is huge and glorious and carries a sickle that operates as an extension of himself. He is all about harvesting people and nations, and is always associated with bringing great economic help and releasing great anointing and spiritual mantles. His initial activation, as it were, in the United States was at the 1906 Azusa Street Revival. 
All the shifts and changes of the last year are very connected to the breakthrough of the AzusaNow event and Hurricane Harvey is now taking it to the next level. I believe this angel is being activated as a "heavenly hurricane" at this time and extremely anointed and change/reform is what he is bringing. (More explanation coming.)
Coming through Corpus Christi
"There is an opportunity for the Body of Christ to recognize that God, the Redeemer, is up to something big as it relates to the restoration of Houston."
Of no coincidence either is that the hurricane came through Corpus Christi. Corpus Christi means "the Body of Christ" and this is where the spiritual hurricane is now going to come through as we are thrust into the harvest glory of revival AND reformation. The nations are the reward HE is due for the suffering He went through. Corpus Christi was deeply affected by the powerful winds and over 20 inches of rain, but they were not devastated. Likewise, the Church is about to experience powerful and non-ignorable winds of the Holy Spirit, and a flooding of new manifestations and levels of His glory. There is definitely correction involved in this powerful visitation, but it is all to serve the greater glory. Expect to see an increase of strong winds of reformation for the Body of Christ. 
A 500-Year Flood/500 Year Anniversary of Protestant Reformation
It has been reported multiple times already that the flooding from Harvey is a one-in-500-year event (some say perhaps even one-in-1000-year event). It has already been confirmed as the greatest rainfall in our nation's history. We have also been pointing out that this year we celebrate the 500-year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, with the understanding that we are now going into Reformation 2.0—the reformation of nations. 
Harvey coming on the heels of a most rare total solar eclipse further confirms to us that we have entered into unprecedented days of Kingdom advance. Jesus is not now coming FOR us as many are mistakenly perceiving, but He is now coming TO us. It is a "coming" of sorts—but after coming TO us, He is going to come THROUGH us before it will be time to come FOR us.Before that stage 3 "coming" we will be a spotless Bride worthy of her majestic Bridegroom, but we are far from that at this time. Whatever plan you make, let it be at least 100 years.
September 23, 2017 Coming of Jesus?
As a side, the September 23 constellation alignment date that many are believing matches Revelation 12 is not as rare as being reported. About 90% of the "rare" alignments happen every year and the Jupiter quotient happens every 12 years. It is somewhat rare, but less so than the eclipse. The heavens ARE speaking and declaring the glory of God, but is all about Him coming TO us and THROUGH us and not about Him coming FOR us. He would be the Author of failure with a miscarried master plan if He returned now. 
In America, it seems half the Church "hated" Obama during the last presidency (and they let me know that when I informed how God was using him), and now the other half "hates" Trump (and they let me know that when I tell how God is using him). We are primarily an undiscerning, bickering, powerless, low-grade-love, Church at this time (yikes, sorry), and not really something that our doting Father is proud to present to Jesus as His Bride. 
The good news is He loves us passionately anyway, and He is going to pour out His liquid love on us until we abandon our old "homes" and find higher ground. All we need is LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. He is going to flood us until it is the only real story in town.
Why Houston?
I believe we do a tremendous misreading of events and reality if we look at Houston as deserving this flooding in any way. Yes, there have been abortionists and homosexuals prominently displayed in this city, but that in no wise sums up who this city is. Houston has been the oil capital of the United States and it has also been known as "Space City" because of the presence of NASA and the Houston Command Center that saw us land on the moon among other significant space accomplishments. It is also a major "Bible Belt" city with many great churches, as well as has the largest church in America, Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church. While a religious spirit has been a significant detriment to the Kingdom of God in Houston, it is still a city with many friends of God. A yet more amazing destiny awaits Houston.
Hope and Joel Osteen
Here, I might surprise many of you and tell you that Joel Osteen is very popular—in Heaven. He has been bashed by much of the Church for being "an inch deep and a mile wide" but that is not Heaven's perspective at all. The rarest commodity on planet earth for some time has been HOPE. Even people who will champion love are often very challenged in their hope levels. True hope is something you have to intentionally cultivate, and though it can look like shallow "positive-thinking", when it is real, it is almost the greatest force on earth.
Steve ShultzJoel Osteen has built his life and ministry on developing and releasing hope. If you ever just feel discouraged, turn on the TV and find Joel Osteen somewhere. You will immediately feel encouraged. Beyond his words there is an anointing he carries that is tied into multi-generational blessings that are on him. He has a church of over 50,000, millions of followers on social media, through TV he reaches over 20 million a month in over 100 nations, he has 7 NY Times best-seller books, there are radio stations that play his messages around the clock, and in every ministry expression you will find yourself exposed to and infected by hope. 
He is widely followed by "unbelievers" because they are starving for the hope he dishes out. Somehow he has figured out that a minister of the "good news" has to carry a spirit of Good News. Joel Osteen is the world's greatest exporter of this rarest resource on the planet—hope. Furthermore, he has had to defend his hopeful perspective on God and life in setting after setting, both secular or religious. 
If you look up his name, he has been labeled a "prosperity preacher" and that is somehow in today's Christian environment a no-no. Do we really want "poverty preachers" or "despair preachers"? Is that really what we think is the true essence of the Gospel (which means "good news")? Did Jesus really come and promote abundant poverty and challenge? Or did He say I come that you might have abundant life (John 10:10)? If poverty were a virtue would it not exist in Heaven? Does anyone believe that's the case? 
Yes, I know there are and have been "prosperity preachers" who use it to manipulate for great offerings. Joel is not one of those. Oh, that the Christian world would embrace the God that is presented by Joel Osteen. If being hopeful and joyful is "shallow", then Heaven must also be shallow. 
Joel's Army?
I have been shown that something about this whole Houston flooding has to do with God promoting Joel Osteen. Perhaps, that is why there was a quick and unfair cheap shot taken at him and his church by the press after Hurricane Harvey. Believe me, God is promoting him. Joel will now be invited to spiritually spearhead the rebuilding of Houston. While many are thinking and saying that the city needs to be given up on, God has other things in mind. Houston will rise again and be known as a City of Hope
"Houston will rise again and be famed as a City of Hope—but I will get to that in a moment."
There is an opportunity for the Body of Christ to recognize that God, the Redeemer, is up to something big as it relates to the restoration of Houston. The spirit of death and the spirit of religion is being flooded out of town, and it is going to allow for this city to arise as a model of reformation. Houston was named after Samuel Houston and the Samuel anointing is going to rise in the city. Samuel was the prophet who carried oil. Houston has been known for natural oil, but will now be known for spiritual oil. The Hope Reformation oil from what God does in the city will spread and "anoint" cities that will arise like David and kill their Goliaths. 
The "Joel's Army" for today will be those that arise in the same spirit as the appropriately named Joel Osteen. Joel Osteen is being commissioned and empowered to raise a "Joel's Army" and they will be victorious as the name of his life and ministry partner, Victoria Osteen would tell us. Corpus of Christi—get behind this man and couple and pick up of his spirit, even for yourself. You need what he carries to thrive in the coming days.
Healing the Gulf with Mexico
Hurricane Harvey did not cross the Atlantic as the eventual category 4 storm it became. That dynamic happened as it came into the Gulf of Mexico, where the water was described as "unusually hot". Overheated waters in the Gulf of Mexico caused the hurricane to build up. This whole hurricane phenomenon has many pieces of the puzzle, but one of them is that an undesirable "heating of the waters" existed that played out. This is a time for healing of the gulf WITH Mexico. Part of the incendiary national discourse taking place has to do with a need to repair thoughts and dialogue regarding Hispanic immigrants. Now is a really good time for that.
250,000 Immigrants will be Needed to Rebuild
After the initial multi-billion dollar damages pay out, there will be a major boom in the building industry caused by the flooded region (add Louisiana to that mix). While many in America are operating to the distorted narrative that Hispanic immigrants are "taking our jobs", the reality is that even BEFORE Harvey the national building industry was in great need of workers. Overall, the nation has over 6 million jobs available that are not being filled. We already have an almost record low unemployment level and this is only going to go down. Our nation is presently more in need of workers than jobs. 
President Trump is also about to embark on a major rebuilding of America infrastructure initiative that might cost above a trillion, and demand hundreds of thousands of workers willing to do that type of work. Who are the workers willing to do that kind of work? As you know, it is primarily the Hispanic immigrant population (legal or otherwise) that is famed for their work ethic and that has been building America for some time. We must end our misconception of their role in America, as they have been very key for us and will now be extremely key for us. Watch as the real numbers come out and you will see that we will need a force of around 250,000 to rebuild Houston, and we will either have to allow for special work permits to abound or re-think our immigration policies. 
There is nothing wrong with making our borders more secure but there is attached dialogue that has created an unnecessary rift/gulf with Mexico and Latin America, and with the immigrant populace in general. Telling and retelling anecdotal violent exceptions from the Latino immigrant pool only "heats up the waters" in an unnecessary way. 
Body of Christ, let's get back to the assignment of being "ministers of reconciliation" as we are Biblically charged to do (2 Cor. 5:18-21). Furthermore, Jesus is still saying "Blessed are the peacemakers..." (Matthew 5:9). 
It is of no coincidence that the 67-mile-wide "path of totality" for the recent total eclipse essentially began in Salem, Oregon and that a total of 7 Salem's were in that path. The word Salem means "peace" or "peaceful" and God has a Psalm 67 "face shining on us" reality as we embrace that. I will tell you that "creation itself" is going to continue to "act up" in ways that look like "judgment" until we abandon the hostile, polarized thinking and talking that we have been deeply engaged in. 
The Corpus of Christ (Body of Christ) must take the lead in this, and in doing so you might have to abandon some of your present "talking points". There has been an expanded "gulf" along racial lines FOR CHRISTIANS since the election and we all have opportunities to tone down the rhetoric and become the blessed "Salem/Shalom makers". May we quickly respond as we ought. I believe that we will. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
