Breaking The Mind Barrier

The Lord revealed that one of the Keys to advancing in His Kingdom in this hour is to break the "mind barrier" in each area that we're believing Him for. He recently showed me a particular area that I've been struggling with for 15 years or more. I had prayed and fasted, made declarations of faith, spoken the Word, and battled demons, but nothing seemed to move me forward in that which I was seeking. Suddenly, there was grace for break-through. It was a sovereign move of God. Only in hindsight has He shown me that He enabled me to break through the "mind barrier" in this area.

The sound barrier, which was broken during World War 2 in the 1940s, was recognized as an impediment to further acceleration. The Lord showed me that my mindset in this particular area was also an impediment to further progress. It was only after the breaking of this barrier in my mind that progress was made and results were seen.

We are in a time of acceleration. The Lord is actively removing those impediments in our minds that have kept us "stuck" in place. Our part is to believe, and to turn to the Lord of Breakthrough for His breaker anointing in every area of our lives. Only then can we move beyond the limitations of this sphere and enter the heavenly arena where miracles, signs, and wonders exist.

Micah 2:13 - "The breaker goes up before them. They break out, pass through the gate, and go out by it. So their king goes on before them, and the Lord at their head."

Convergence of God's Decrees

The Lord quickened to my spirit that we are in a time of "Convergence", in which many of the decrees that He's made over our lives are coming together and meeting. He spoke that nothing happens except by decree, both in the Kingdom of God and in the kingdom of darkness.

Job 23:14 - "For He performs what is appointed for me, and many such decrees are with Him."

Psalm 94:20-23 - "Can a throne of destruction be allied with Thee, one which devises trouble and misfortune by decree? They band themselves together against the soul of the righteous and condemn the innocent to death.... He will silence them in their evil."

A decree is an order or command having the force of law. Those words/promises that God has spoken to us, some as many as 20 years ago, were actually decrees that were issued concerning our lives and ministries. Once spoken forth by God, the Righteous Judge, from His heavenly court, these words have had the force of law in our lives. They have activated the ministry of angels on our behalf and the full attention of Holy Spirit as He works all things together for the accomplishment of God's will.

Jeremiah 1:12 - "I am watching over My word to perform it."

Let the Lord quicken those words that He has spoken forth as promises in our lives, knowing that they were actually decrees made that will come to pass. Know that you will see many of these promises come to pass simultaneously in this hour!

Course Correction

I heard the Lord say that He is making course corrections in people's lives right now. This is a window of time in which the God of Mercy is visiting His people to lead them into the path that He has ordained. Many have either gotten out of correct timing, or we've veered off of our destined path. Even one degree will take us to the wrong destination. These course corrections are vital to our future.

In scripture, we see Saul, soon to be the Apostle Paul, on the road to Damascus to persecute Christians. Jesus suddenly appeared to him, correcting his course and calling him to his Kingdom destiny.

Not long ago, I had a vision in which I was in an open box car with two other people. We were traveling on a train track through beautiful mountains in a foreign country. As we were admiring the scenery, I suddenly realized that we were no longer on the track; it had disappeared. However, the car seemed to maintain stability, and so I relaxed. Soon, though, I sensed that we had picked up speed. Looking ahead, I saw that we were heading straight for a cliff and were powerless to prevent the car from going over the edge. As we were falling to our death, I cried out to the Lord to save us!

The Lord revealed that we had passed from the perfect will of God into the permissible will of God. The permissible will of God led to destruction.

Proverbs 14:12 - "There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death."

Chuck Pierce recently reported the following word of the Lord: "This is a reprieve and a ceasing that I am decreeing from heaven..... Ask for a time of ceasing until people can reorder the way that they operate and My kingdom plan will go forth."

This is a time like no other in which we must hear the voice of the Lord and obey His instructions.

Isaiah 30:21 - "And your ears will hear a word behind you, 'This is the way, walk in it', whenever you turn to the right or to the left."

It's time to pray for the rain of the Spirit on all the spiritual seed that has been sown! This is the time of the spring rain, and the Lord instructs us to pray to the Lord of the Harvest for His showers.

Zech.10:1 - Ask rain from the Lord at the time of the spring rain - the Lord who makes the storm clouds; and He will give them showers of rain, vegetation in the field to each man."

The Lord quickened to me that as we pray to Him for the rain, He WILL GIVE THE RAIN for the seed which we have sown, and it will be "rich and plenteous"!

Isa. 30:23 - "Then He will give you rain for the seed which you will sow in the ground, and bread from the yield of the ground, and it will be rich and plenteous. On that day your liestock will graze in a roomy pasture."

The Lord revealed that He was not only bringing a quick harvest from seed sown in January and February of this year, but He is also bringing to fruition many things that have been sown in years past, and which have not yet come to harvest.

This is the time....... This is the season to reap a bountiful harvest. So pray to the Lord of the Harvest! This is an appointed time for harvest. Ask the Lord to send rain to your field and watch as He quickly answers this prayer in ways you can't even imagine.

You Will Know Them By Their Fruit

It is time for the gift of discernment to operate in our lives like never before. Scripture prophesies that in the last days, many will go forth displaying miracles, signs, and wonders. There will be both the false and the true. How will we know the difference? Even now, how can we differentiate between those who speak as though from God, but who really have a different spirit? Matthew 7 tells us that we will know them by their fruit!

Matt.7:20-23 - "So then, you will know them by their fruits. Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' And then I will declare to them, 'I NEVER KNEW YOU! Depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.'"

We are told in 1 Cor.8:3 that "if anyone loves God, he is known by Him." Thus, we see that a person who truly loves God is also known by Him. We love God if we do the things He has commanded us to do. Thus, the person who goes his or her own way, even while seeming to operate mightily in the gifts of the Spirit, is not really of God, but is operating in a different spirit. Do we see evidence of love, joy, peace, patience, and kindness? Do we feel a knitting together of our hearts with them when in their presence?

Many have become confused because of apparent "evidence" that someone is being used by God. However, there is no sure inner witness that we are joined together in unity. The Lord would say to you today, trust the witness of the Holy Spirit who dwells within you. Look not at outward signs, but look to the inner man. Test the spirit, and know them by their fruit! "A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit." (Matt.7:18)

What God Is Saying About Women

Many people have prophesied that this is a great year for women to come forth into their destinies and to take their God-ordained places in the Body of Christ. I believe that as women come into proper alignment, the men will come into their full destiny. This is because, in the beginning, "God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." (Gen.1:27) Thus, men and women are two halves of a whole; both must be in alignment in order to be one. Here, we're not speaking only of a marriage bond, but of the most fundamental relationship between men and women in God's creation.

Scripture is full of examples of women who affected the destinies of the men they were connected to - either for good or for evil:
Eve....... Adam
Sarah....... Abraham (Sarah gave Abraham to her maid, Hagar, resulting in Ishmael. Finally, she believed God and received the ability to conceive Isaac (the son of promise) in her old age.
Rahab ...... Ancestor of Jesus; Believed God and hid the spies
Ruth ....... Ancestor of Jesus; Had to obey God to be in the field for Boaz
Abagail..... Kept King David from sin; became his wife
Esther ..... Became Queen and saved her people
Deborah .... Sat in the gate and heard the command of God to send for Barak
Hannah ..... Dedicated the prophet Samuel to the Lord
Mary ....... Believed God and became the mother of Jesus

I believe the Lord is calling women according to Isaiah 54, "Like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit." He is beautifying each precious bondservant, laying a foundation of sapphires and confirming His covenant of peace. Where things in these lives have been barren and desolate, the Lord is now bringing forth much fruit. Ministries that have been dormant will now produce many children. There will be no more shame or reproach, for the Lord has come as Redeemer!

"So arise and shout for joy, O barren one, you who have borne no child. Break forth into joyful shouting and cry aloud, you who have not travailed. For the sons of the desolate one will be more numerous than the sons of the married woman", says the Lord! (Isa.54:1)

Let Your Light Shine

I heard the Lord say, "Light will shine on all of your ways!" I knew this was a scripture, and I found it in the Book of Job.

Job 22:27,28 - "You will pray to Him, and He will hear you.... You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways."

No longer are we to walk in darkness, confusion, or heaviness. Many in the body of Christ have withdrawn and some have lost hope. The light of the calling and destiny the Lord revealed many years ago is about to be extinguished. The Lord would say to you, "AWAKE SLEEPER, AND ARISE FROM THE DEAD, AND I WILL SHINE ON YOU!" (Eph.5:14)

The Lord has come in power to gloriously re-ignite the vision, the hope, and the calling of His people. It is His light that will enlighten (furnish knowledge; instruct; give spiritual insight to) each one, according to John 1:9. It is His light that will draw both people and provision to us (Isa.60:1-5). Our part is to ARISE AND AWAKEN and let people SEE the good works the Lord has given us to accomplish. Come out of hiding. Do what the Lord has called you to do! Take the next step. Share the vision, that those who see it may run with it (Habakkuk 2:1-3).

Matthew 5:14-16 - "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do men light a lamp, and put it under the peck measure, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven."
