"Be Confident - Your Breakthrough is Coming!" Joe Joe Dawson

I had not had time to read this great word until this morning, but it is very encouraging and exciting.  I believe it is true!  If you haven't read it before, you might want to now.

Recently the Lord has been speaking to me about the Kingdom of God, breakthrough and increase. The Lord has been saying to me that Kingdom people are about to receive Kingdom increase that is designed for Kingdom breakthrough. The Lord is setting us up to be able to go get the harvest and bring them in to disciple them. 
We are about to see pioneers and forerunners lead ministries that will bring in a harvest and then bring reformation to them. The Lord has been stirring my heart to preach and teach the exact same message Jesus taught which was the "Kingdom of God". 
Luke 4:43 says, "But He said to them, 'I must preach the Kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent.'"
It is time that we start preaching the same message Jesus and the apostles taught. They walked in great power and authority and brought breakthrough and increase everywhere they went. They preached the Kingdom of God for Kingdom purposes.
Kingdom Increase is Coming
Many people in this next season will receive an increase in their life spiritually, physically, financially, and emotionally. These increases are for Kingdom breakthrough and Kingdom purposes. Yes, God loves you and wants you healed and set free! But don't just think this increase in your life is for only you. Everything God is doing and will do is to advance His Kingdom in and through your life in this hour.  
Jesus prayed in Matthew 6:10"Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven."
"God brings His explosive power into us so that we can understand the authority that has been given to us."
Jesus is at the right hand of the Father interceding for you and me! We must find out what Heaven is saying over our lives, ministries, businesses, churches, cities and nations. Now is the time for Kingdom increase! We must make sure we steward the increase properly.
Proverbs 4:25-27 says, "Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil."
In this upcoming season, we need to be laser focused on the things of the Lord. Do not allow circumstances or situations to get you off track. When breakthrough comes we must make sure we are ready to walk in the breakthrough and steward it well. Don't wear yourself out worrying. 
Seasons of Trial and Testing Strengthen You
Your breakthrough is coming. Be confident in the faithfulness of God so that when your breakthrough comes, you're not too tired to walk in it! Remember you don't get stronger in the good times but you grow the most during seasons of trials, tests and tribulation. Warfare seasons are meant to strengthen us so we can receive our breakthrough.
Sometimes the breakthrough is simply the end of a process God was taking you through toward a certain destination! You must learn to endure and learn from the process. Don't sit around and cry or complain. You won't learn what God needs to teach you for your next level assignment. If you don't break, you will have your breakthrough! God will equip you in the hard times and these times will be full of pressure, but you will come out ready for your next season. Your breakthrough is at hand!
Be Connected to the Right People
Don't look at where you are, look at where you're going. Make sure you are connected to the right people in this season. Surround yourself with only those who will help you walk in the purposes and plans God has over your life. 
Hebrews 6:12 says, "We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised." 
The hour we are in is a special time for the Body of Christ, we must make sure the people around us are spiritually strong. Grow close to the ones who have been through hard times and followed God all the way through until they got their breakthrough. Align yourself with people who stay in the battle until they inherit the promises and the purpose that God has designed for them!
He Will Show Himself Strong
2 Chronicles 16:9 says, "For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him..." 
Whenever God finds someone who has made their relationship with Him the most important thing, He will show Himself strong to that person. These are the ones that are usually on the cutting-edge of what God is saying over regions. These are the people that always have a fresh song or word that is being released. 
Matthew 5:6 says, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled." 
So many people are not tapping into the promises that God has for them because they really don't have a proper understanding about the miraculous power God has given us. We must understand that Heaven is the place of creation and Earth is the place that it's manifested. When we get our hearts in proper alignment with what the Lord is saying, we will start to see this Kingdom breakthrough flood every part of our life.
John 15:4 says, "Remain in Me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in Me."
The Lord is looking for the ones who will receive a word from Him, and hang on to that word no matter what comes. We must hold tight to the word of God, not what the critics may say and ignore the situations that are trying to destroy your purpose. The Lord longs for the person whose heart is dependent on Him. 
Psalm 143:9 says, "Rescue me from my enemies, Lord, for I hide myself in You." 
Psalm 40:1 says, "I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me, and heard my cry."
Walking in His Authority and Power
"It is time that we start preaching the same message Jesus and the apostles taught."
I feel so strongly in my spirit that we are about to start walking in the fullness of God. As Believers, we are about to understand the authority and power that is available to us.
Ephesians 3:19-20 in the Passion Translation says this, "And [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God's presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself]. Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us." 
Luke 10:19 says, "Behold, I give you authority and power..." What are we doing with this great authority and power that God has given us? We have delegated authority to change and shift every atmosphere that we walk into. 
Luke 9:1-2 says, "Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick." 
When the children of God can truly grasp the power that is available to them we will start to see breakthrough and an extreme increase over people's lives for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
Ephesians 6:10 in the Passion Translation says, "Now finally, my beloved ones, be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of His explosive power flowing in and through you." 
God brings His explosive power into us so that we can understand the authority that has been given to us. Then we are supposed to let the power within us leak out into every single part of our lives and onto every person we come in contact with. (Photo via Unsplash)
The Apostle Paul understood the power of walking in the fullness of God. Romans 15:29 says, "And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fullness of the blessing of the Jesus Christ."  
Paul was completely convinced that when he visited a group of people that the gifts of the Spirit would be manifested. No matter what the people needed, Paul felt confident in his walk with God that the fullness of God would be present to minister to the people. Paul's life was one that was 100% completely devoted to God. 
Romans 1:11 says, "For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gifts, to the end you will be established." Paul had such a relationship with the Lord that when he went to minister, the impartation of the gifts of the Spirit of God would manifest themselves in the lives of the people that he ministered to. Paul knew they would receive these gifts and keep them until the end. 
We must understand that this delegated authority and power that God has given us is so real and necessary for today. Activate the Kingdom of God that is already inside of you, let it bring the Kingdom increase into your life for Kingdom breakthrough! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

The István Markó Interview by JAMES DELINGPOLE

For those of you who still believe the 'fake news' of man made global warming you might want to read this excellent article.

The István Markó Interview: Possibly the Best Thing You Will Ever Read on Global Warming. Pt 1: The Science.

Maybe the biggest of all the lies put out by the global warming scaremongers is that the science is on their side. No it isn’t. And if you’re in any doubt at all you should read this interview with the brilliant scientist István Markó. It tells you all you need to know about the science of global warming.

Dr. Markó, who sadly died earlier this year aged only 61, was a professor and researcher in organic chemistry at the Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium’s largest French-speaking university. More importantly for the purposes of this interview, he was one of the world’s most outspoken and well-informed climate skeptics, who contributed to several articles on the subject for Breitbart News.
Before he died, he gave an extensive interview to the French journalist Grégoire Canlorbe. Here are highlights of the English translation. As you’ll see, he doesn’t pull his punches.
CO2 is not – and has never been a poison
Each of our exhalations, each of our breaths, emits an astronomical quantity of CO2proportionate to that in the atmosphere (some >40,000 ppm); and it is very clear that the air we expire does not kill anyone standing in front of us. What must be understood, besides, is that CO2 is the elementary food of plants. Without CO2 there would be no plants, and without plants there would be no oxygen and therefore no humans.
Plants love CO2. That’s why the planet is greening

The Difference Between A Zealous Christian and A Zealous Muslim by Francis Frangipane

     I first posted this great explanation in 2013, but since it was brought to my attention recently, I thought it would be good to re-post it for those of you who haven't seen it.

The Difference Between A Zealous Christian and A Zealous Muslim

The difference between being a zealous Christian and a zealous Muslim is quite striking and well explained by Francis Frangipane.

                                A Better Way by Francis Frangipane
A man might be a nominal Christian, mostly unaffected by spiritual things, until one day he reads the Bible and the Holy Spirit ignites in him a fire. If that person remains steadfast in his inspiration, he will increasingly pattern his life after Jesus Christ - that is, he will become more loving, more forgiving, and more ready to give his life for the redemption of others. Spiritual gifts will accompany his life as He becomes Christlike. As Jesus said, "The works that I do, he will do also" (John 14:12).

However, if a nominal Muslim begins to read a Koran, if he continues his daily reading and feels an increasing zeal toward obeying the precepts of Mohammed, if he continues on, this man will ultimately desire to possess true Islam – that is, total submission to Allah. The works Mohammed did the follower will also do. The zealot will police his community, seeking to preserve obedience to Islam. He will seek to convert unbelievers by all means, including violence and terror, and he will consider it his duty to kill those who resist the spread of Islam. If one carries true Islam in his or her soul, but does not use violence, they will at the very least sympathize with those that do.

Thus, the radicalization of at least some Muslims is inevitable, for the normal growth of an unrestrained zealot will eventually conform him to the founder of his religion. This means that as long as there are people reading the Koran there will be a small percentage who pledge their lives to Islam’s spread even by use of violence. We who live in the predominantly non-Muslim world will have to cope with the violence of these "true believers."

It also means that the moderate Muslims must realize, unless they desire war with their non-Muslim neighbors, they will have to expose and denounce the radicalized Muslim, especially in communities where Muslims and non-Muslims live together.

Are you Muslim? Do you want the radical extremist to represent you and your people? If not, then you must find ways to direct the radical Muslim into a spiritual jihad against the sins of his soul rather than a violent jihad against the people of a community.

Are you Christian? You must guard against prejudging all Muslims, for many people turned to Islam as a reaction to the sinfulness of the West. In a real way, they were seeking Christ and stability and the church failed them. 

But in this present atmosphere, they are doubting the choice they made to follow Islam. Therefore, we must reveal Christ and the love He has for all men if we hope to win Muslims.

And finally, as Christians, we must forgive and pray for Muslims. My wife and I pray daily for Muslims, that the Lord of the harvest would send laborers into the Muslim world and that Jesus would be revealed to them, including the most radical who are ready to kill.

The radical Islamist will only be won by the radical Christ follower. We must show them a better way.

"A Healing Prayer: Take God's Medicine 3 Times a Day" by Mark Virkler

      I very much appreciate Mark Virkler's ministry.  I have many of his books and messages on cd/dvd and have learned much from him.  This article, posted on the Elijah List, has some very helpful instruction and wisdom for all of us who want to walk in health.

Derek Prince tells his story of being healed by taking God's Word as medicine three times a day. He was in the British army in World War II in an Egyptian military hospital, lying sick with a chronic skin infection for 12 months. Derek was newly baptized in the Holy Spirit and he felt he was short on faith for healing, so God opened this Scripture to him: "Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" (Rom. 10:17). So faith can come. Derek asked God: "How can I 'hear' what the Bible has to say to me so that faith can come?"
Derek reflected that since doctors often instruct their patients to take their medicine three times a day, he would speak God's healing Scriptures over himself after each meal, three times a day, as God's medicine. Since he was in a military hospital with plenty of time, Derek did this daily for three months, and he was completely cured! A person who listened to Derek's testimony took God's medicine for three days as well, and was also healed of a skin condition!
Scriptures declare:
"He sent His word and healed them" (Ps. 107:20). "God has appointed in the Church, miracles, then gifts of healings" (1 Cor. 12:28). "If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your Healer" (Ex. 15:26).
The Prescription – Take God's Word as Medicine
"I invite the cleansing power of Your Word to clean my cells, including all cellular memory and to reprogram my DNA to conform with its original design."
I can use the diagnosis of a doctor (as a guide) to help me gain an understanding of where my prayer is to be focused. God will assist in granting me a fuller diagnosis in any sickness, and sometimes sickness can be intertwined with sins that invite demons (Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Matthew 4:24). I embrace God's prognosis, which is to repent, be cleansed, and put on Christ's righteousness and the healing that Christ has purchased for me.
Take God's medicine three times a day (if you can). When you see, think, feel and speak ONLY what God says and feels about you, His healing and miracle-working power is released within you. Employ heart prayers by using the language of the heart. To impact my heart, I must use the language of my heart. The language of my heart incorporates the following seven elements:
1) It begins with the voice of the Holy Spirit, which is embraced as I choose to 2) speak it as 3) my personal and 4) present-tense reality. In addition, the heart's language is 5) visual, 6) emotional 7) and utilizes Biblical meditation to frame in my spirit the things God desires to birth in my life.
Psalms exemplifies heart prayers. David prays using 1) affirmative statements that are 2) personal and 3) present tense:
"You, O LORD, are a shield about me..."(Psalm 3:3). "...the LORD sustained me."(Psalm 3:5). "...You have smitten all my enemies..." (Psalm 3:7). My declaration: I choose to speak God's truth as my personal, present-tense reality, thus experiencing God's medicine. (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)
How to Take the Prescription – A Sample Prayer
Hebrew meanings inserted into Proverbs 4:20-23 (emphasis mine):
"My son (everything flows from relationship), give attention to My words (focus with undivided attention); incline your ear to My sayings (humbly listen, a willingness to be taught and to change). Do not let them depart from your sight (see God's promises already fulfilled, Genesis 15:5-6); keep them (hedge in with thorns) in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health (medicine) to all their body (entire being). Watch over (blockade) your heart with all diligence, for from it flows the springs (boundaries) of life."
Healing and miracles occur through a living encounter with the living God (Luke 8:44-48). Merely speaking Bible promises as some sort of magic formula will not do the trick. What I say must flow from revelation in my heart, which comes as "He opens Scriptures to me" (Luke 24:32). So I tune to my heart to hear and see Him, and experience His healing power. I follow these steps as I take God's Word as medicine.
Let's Pray and Encounter God Together: 
I come before You, thanking You for these specific blessings (Psalm 100:4-5). Thank You, Lord, for _________. I am so grateful because ________________. I thank You – thank You – thank You – thank You, Lord. I sense Your presence and glory as I praise You (1 Peter 1:8). You are wonderful! You are so good! You are perfect and worthy of all praise. There is no one like You. (Get involved emotionally. God lets us find Him when we are whole-hearted, 2 Chronicles 15:15.)
I establish connection with You by tuning into the Holy Spirit. You are the River flowing within me (John 7:37-39).
I interact with You by honoring and responding to Your voice (flowing thoughts), Your visions (flowing pictures), Your emotions (flowing emotions) and Your power (the energizing flow that wells up within me).
I see: I prayerfully visualize (Ephesians 1:17-18) the Scriptures below, and as Spirit flow takes over, step into a vision (seeing Jesus present) speaking to me in these encounters.
I experience Your compassion: forgiveness toward self, others and God. This is crucial to receiving Your healing touch (Mark 11:25). I obey all instructions received through Scriptures and from Your Spirit.
I honor You: by closing each prayer time with worship. Worship means "to bow down," so I bow down (or kneel) and put (name infirmity or condition) into my hands and then lay it down before You, giving it to You. I am now free of this infirmity or condition. I bow down (or kneel) before You, my Lord, my Maker (Psalm 95:6).
Prophetic actions and a memorial: What prophetic action would You have me perform with conviction and intensity to release this healing (2 Kings 13:18-19)? What memorial would You have me carry throughout the day as a reminder of this healing, so that my faith is stirred up (Joshua 24:27)?
God Sends His Word to Heal - Prayer Encounter
This prayer is woven from Scripture. It is to be spoken from the heart, so speak slowly, pause, see (picture) and feel what you are speaking. Be childlike, fun-loving and relaxed as you encounter Him. See Jesus seated on His throne in the heavenlies, next to His Father, having purchased your victory over sin and disease.
"I choose to speak God's truth as my personal, present-tense reality, thus experiencing God's medicine."
See, feel, and speak: I lift my eyes to the heavens, and behold You, Jesus, seated on Your throne...clothed in majesty and power. I come before You, my Lord, thanking and praising You for all You have done.
I thank You that whenever I have called upon You for help, You have heard my cry and come to my aid. I thank You that in Your mercy, You healed all who came to You. I come! Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed. My healing will be to Your praise and glory. I thank You that Your words are life to me and health to my whole body. 
See, feel and speak: You send Your Word and heal me. You provide instructions concerning the path I am to walk and the steps I am to take so I can be free of all sin and all sickness. Lord, what instructions would You give me to resolve this (name the condition)? Since forgiveness and walking in compassion is so central to healing, is there a need for me to forgive myself, others or You, God, for any perceived wrongdoings? Are there sins connected with this infirmity? I incline my ear to You. I listen as You speak.
Lord, I honor what You have spoken. I inscribe Your words upon the tablet of my heart, seeing them, feeling them and embracing them. (See yourself doing what He has asked you to do. It is recommended you re-read what the Lord has just spoken – picturing, feeling, and seeing yourself doing it. And if you need to dialogue more with Him about how to do what He has asked, then add that dialogue to your journaling above.)
See, feel, and speak: This condition and these sins are not mine. They are not from God. They are from the kingdom of darkness. They have no place in my being. I break all agreements with ungodly pictures, beliefs, and words spoken by myself and others and this resulting physical condition. (Take time NOW to be specific, and list these and repent for each one, and see yourself adapting righteous behaviors that replace sinful behaviors.) (Photo via Unsplash)
I command all demons affiliated with these sins, and this condition to leave NOW, in Jesus' name. (List the demons by name and command each one to leave in Jesus' name. Their names correspond with the sins they magnify.)
See, feel, and speak: Lord, I walk in Your truth that by Your stripes, I AM healed! I repent and return to You, so that my sins may be wiped away, and times of refreshing may come from Your presence, oh Lord. You were pierced through for my transgressions. Your Blood washed away ALL my sin. I am clothed with Your robe of righteousness. I am empowered by Your Spirit. Thank You, Lord!
See, feel, and speak: You are my wisdom, anointing, and power. I receive Your love, compassion, and healing power. YOU are my Healer through whatever means You choose! I see myself as You declare I am. I declare and decree that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I am blessed and empowered to overcome (name sin(s), illness, condition). I am Your workmanship and Your handiwork. You have empowered me to walk in righteousness and divine health. You are my Source. I thank You that Your power obliterates the prognosis of man.
See, feel and speak: Jesus, healing power streams from You. Everyone sought to touch You. I lay down the barriers of my strivings and self-effort and reach out to touch You. I cry out to You, my Healer. I reach out my hand and touch the fringe of Your cloak (pause as you do this). I speak to this (name infirmity), and to the root cause of it, and I command it to leave NOW, in Jesus' name! Leave now, in Jesus' name! Leave now, in Jesus' name.
Thank You, Lord, that by Your stripes I AM healed! Your Kingdom power and authority IS manifest in my life right now. You proclaim healing to my entire being. I am washed with the water of Your Word. I invite the cleansing power of Your Word to clean my cells, including all cellular memory and to reprogram my DNA to conform with its original design. I am cleansed. I am free. Thank You, Lord. I rest in Your finished work.
I fix my eyes on You, Jesus. I choose friendship with You and Your words of life, which You have spoken over my being.
I speak Your words of life to my body and call my body to attention to align with them. Body, hear the Word of the Lord. You will live and not die. Breath of God, breathe upon me (breath in deeply). Body, receive the breath of the Lord. Healing is the children's bread. I am a child of God. I receive Your healing of my spirit, soul and body, now.
What prophetic action and memorial of this new freedom do You propose to me as I desire to be reminded, throughout the day, to walk in faith?
Lord, I create an altar of praise in my heart to honor the good work You have done in me. I choose to praise You NOW because I see the miracle already completed. I know You are faithful to perform Your Word. I reject fear, doubt and relapse. I meditate on Your healing and instructive word spoken over me. I walk in Your healing. I walk in Your counsel. Lord, You are so good! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Thoughts on Healing

      I am becoming more and more convinced that healing must take place in all areas of our lives for it to be complete and lasting.  Not only is it important to eat foods that give our body something with which to repair itself, but we must also give our subconscious mind the tools to bring it to health.  If we want to live a healed and healthy life, it is imperative we look at generational sin.  We must also allow the Lord to bring to the surface those things that have been hidden in our heart--possibly even from birth.  It is only when we recognize and renounce the unforgiveness, anger, bitterness, shame, guilt, etc. we are holding towards others and realize Jesus already paid the price for us to be free of those things that we will be able to live a life of health and wholeness.  Often we have no sense we are harboring thoughts contrary to the will of God until we spend time in prayer asking Him to reveal them.  But He only reveals them so that we can be free--not to condemn us.  In addition to the aforementioned, rejection and self-rejection are two more of the most important reasons we aren't healthy.  It is so important that we understand how God sees us--totally forgiven, totally loved, totally unique--and that we realize in rejecting ourselves or others that we are rejecting a person who God says is beautiful and loves unconditionally.
      Another area of our lives that may need healing is if we have suffered trauma--especially as a child.  This can only be healed by Jesus so we may need to invite Him to walk back through our lives to heal those events.
      I believe many more physical healings will take place when we realize God doesn't just want us to be healthy physically but in every area.  When we pray, we need to check all hindrances to our prayers-- body, soul, spirit, and the demonic.
      As I said, the more I learn, the more excited I become about the potential for healing and the more my faith grows when I see people set free.  I invite you to look further into this.  You will be amazed at the testimonies of healing that take place when these areas are covered before physical healing is prayed for.
      What a wonderful God we serve!  He desires that "we prosper and be in health, even as our souls prosper."  Why has it taken so long for me to know about this?  Why are not more churches teaching this?  Why are we not stepping out in faith believing it?  Didn't Jesus say, "greater things than these shall you do...?  Didn't He commission us to preach the gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons, raise the dead?  When are we going to start?
      I, for one, choose to walk in this new (for me) revelation.  I intend to experiment in prayer to see people healed and delivered so they can be all God created them to be.  How about you?

A word through Brian Simmons

Doesn't your heart say "yes!!" to this word from Brian Simmons?

"You will be amazed too."

The time has come for you to ascend into a new realm, My beloved. Your old way of thinking must be abandoned and surrendered to the new life of My Spirit. My ways are not your ways. The ways of human beings are centered around power and influence, but My ways are paths of love that will mystify and bewilder even the brightest of people. The ways of the Spirit are unseen, yet they are mighty. Spirit life is power and wisdom that makes the simple wise. You will be amazed by what I will do with your life as you surrender to My ways.

Neither are My thoughts your thoughts. My Spirit is the divine intelligence that moves in the hearts of My people, bringing them to the fountain of truth. Many debate and argue, trying to prove their point. But My voice calls out to you in the silence and will teach you wisdom that cannot be given by men. The thoughts I have for you will bring you joy and comfort, for I hold you in My heart as My dearest treasure. You will not understand what I am about to do, but you will be amazed as My glory unfolds within you, giving you revelation light. You have the mind of Christ. Do not be intimidated by those who consider themselves to be wise, for they are fools. Those who scorn My wisdom will be seen as pretenders who must forsake their ways and enter into My sanctuary, where I will let them drink of the pure waters of truth and wisdom. Many times you have backed down from those who pretend to be wise, but now I call you to wait upon Me. I will give you the word of wisdom that you will speak.

My ways and thoughts will be understood as you yield to My Spirit, My child. I will teach you knowledge that comes from eternity, wisdom from above will enter your heart, and a deep fountain of truth will be opened up to you. You will be amazed by what I reveal to you and how I use you in the coming days. Sit with Me, listen to My voice, and let your heart be filled with My words, for I am love’s pure light.

1 Corinthians 3:18 The Passion Translation
"Make no mistake about it, if anyone thinks he is wise by the world’s standards, he will be made wiser by being a fool for God!"

Doug Addison's Prophetic Word for October

     Doug Addison's prophetic word for October certainly goes along with what God has been speaking to me these past few days   As I mentioned a few posts ago, Bill Johnson's goal of not holding any thought in his mind that Jesus wouldn't hold in His was a great inspiration for me.  I have been checking my thoughts to this standard all week.  A wonderful measuring stick!

     Then today I read the word for Oct 9 in Jesus Calling--"You have been on a long, uphill journey, and your energy is almost spent. Though you have faltered at times, you have not let go of My hand.  I am pleased with your desire to stay close to Me.  There is one thing, however, that displeases Me: your tendency to complain.  You may talk to Me as much as you like about the difficulty of the path we are following.  I understand better than anyone else the stresses and strains that have afflicted you.  You can ventilate safely to Me, because talking with Me tempers your thoughts and helps you see things from Myt perspective.  Complaining to others is another matter altogether.  It opens the door to deadly sins such as self-pity and rage.  Whenever you are tempted to grumble, come to Me and talk it out.  As you open up to Me, I will put My thoughts in your mind and My song in your heart."

     And then I opened my email to receive this prophetic word.  It seems what we think is very important to God!  He especially hates grumbling and complaining!

Prophetic Word for October: What We Need to Do to Stop This Angry Whirlwind

Doug Addison
Expect to see lots of dreams and visions throughout the month of October. The heavens are open for revelation and God is imparting what you need for the upcoming season. Plans and strategies are flowing for you to recover your losses from the past. Repayment is coming, so get ready to receive it.
I want to encourage you to not be afraid or worry about how things look. God is still in charge and He is not causing tragedies and difficult times. They are coming from the enemy, who wants to distract us from the coming revival and great blessings.
Yes, these are difficult times, but stay in prayer and worship, focus on God and refrain from complaining and being fearful. Things are going to shift for you very soon.

Complaining can create a whirlwind

Though you probe my heart, though you examine me at night and test me, you will find that I have planned no evil; my mouth has not transgressed. Psalm 17:3 NIV
We need to be very careful how we speak, as the Lord is examining our lives right now for the purposes of promotion. It is important to step away from speaking anything that brings division or lacks love and encouragement.
I asked God why we are seeing such fierce storms, shaking and violence. He told me that it has to do with the negative whirlwind that is alive and active in the hearts of many people right now. It is also delaying revival and closing the heavens for blessings.
They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind. The stalk has no head; it will produce no flour. Were it to yield grain, foreigners would swallow it up. Hosea 8:7 NIV

Word of the Lord

The Lord said, “My people are complaining and sowing anger and taking up causes that are their own and not mine. They are coming into agreement with the voice of the accuser and with the spirit and fruit of darkness. I have called them to speak words of life. This is why there are such violent outbreaks all around the world. And also, why the harvest has not taken place.”
In Hosea 8:7, the Hebrew word for wind is rûacḥ, also translated as anger. Many people have been sowing in anger, frustration, rebellion and revenge. This spirit is now trying to take over in the hearts of many Christians who have an assignment to carry the words of life and not the words of the angry wind.

Stop complaining

God is calling us away from idle arguments and divisions and to focus our efforts on His agenda and things that matter the most. This is a time to rally together in intercession and bless people who we do not agree with. We must love our enemies and pray for those we feel are persecuting us or our beliefs. This includes political and social justice causes, as well as religious and spiritual. There is power in agreement.
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. Matthew 5:44 NIV
Many people have lost their authority in prayer because they are coming into agreement with the accuser of our brothers and sisters (Revelation 12:10).
I want you to do a check in your life right now. What is the fruit you are seeing in your life? Are you seeing answered prayers, financial blessings, people coming to the Lord or coming to you to hear His wisdom? Or are you seeing the opposite? If you are experiencing the latter, then there’s a good chance you need to shift your focus to God’s agenda and not complain and argue with others over your cause or opinion.

Transfer of wealth coming

This next revival will require a lot of finances. Because of the tragedies happening all over the world, we need resources and money for humanitarian purposes. We will also need to finance some of the largest revival meetings we have ever seen.
These will not look like what we currently see inside of the church. I have seen glimpses of them in my interactions with Heaven, and I don’t know exactly what it will look like—except it will be strange and geared towards people who the current church may not accept.
This is all the more reason we will need finances! God said that He is now answering prayers that many Christians have been praying for years.
… But the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous. Proverbs 13:22 NKJV
Many people have been praying this prayer, not realizing that the Lord is trying to answer it. But first He must rid us of anything that is in the same spirit as the world.
God is now shaking things in your life, family, businesses and churches. He’s doing this to get our attention and cause us to focus on the business of God’s Kingdom and not on the world around us. This is why there is such a great shaking happening everywhere. The shaking is not judgment!
Get ready to cross into the new year with a new perspective! God is for you and has not forgotten you!
