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.
