I’ve been hearing the Lord declare, “No more abortions, no more miscarriages! No more aborted dreams. No more aborted callings. No more aborted gifts-made-full in My people’s lives!”

I saw the Lord rise up in righteous indignation at the stolen/lost destinies and dreams that belong to His people. He will tolerate no longer. The gavel has fallen, God the righteous Judge has decreed, “Give My people back what is theirs!” 

God has set eternity in the hearts of men.” — Ecclesiastes 3:11

This is the season God will begin teaching us how to take back our rightful inheritance in Jesus. If we will humble ourselves and let Holy Spirit be our Teacher, we’ll learn how to birth to fruition the seeds of eternity that God planted in our hearts from the moment we were conceived.

Battle of the Mind

“Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.” — Joshua 3:5

The Lord showed me that one of the greatest things holding His children back from their destinies is the issue of Belief. I saw so many have been tied down with ropes of “disbelief”, “doubt”, “confusion”, “fear”, “distorted reality”, “deception” where the enemy has sought to overpower them in the battle of the mind. These ropes not only tie them down but cut into their flesh, tormenting them and turning them to torment others. Many don’t even know there is a battle raging, and have simply relinquished victory to the enemy. Some have put up a good fight, but have grown weary of doing good and given up.

But I hear the Lord decree, “No more! Freedom!!” Jesus, in a suit of blazing white light and a sword in His hand, is coming to set the captives free. He has come to break the chains and cut off the ropes! He stands before each prisoner and asks, “Are you willing?” Some will choose to remain in their bondage of deception, but all who say “Yes, Lord!” will be set free. I see that those who are loosed from captivity will be taken to a place like paradise for a season, full of rolling green hills and new life. There, they will drink and be refreshed, be nursed back to health and strengthened. Then Jesus will call on them to march back to the prison where they came from — this time not as captives, but as warriors to set other captives free.

Then I see a group of brave men and women rising from the dirt. These are the faithful ones, who have held onto Truth and stood firm in Faith. Through the fiery darts and flaming arrows they have steadily marched forward. Some have lost their lives for this cause. Many have lost family, wealth, and even their own health. These are the devoted lovers of God who have loved God even unto death, and have completely died to self so Jesus might increase in them. I see the Jesus the Prince of Peace smile with great joy upon these ones, His faithful trusted ones. With great delight and compassion, the Captain of the Army of the Lord gives a mighty shout that reverberates across the desert land and slays all the enemy armies with one sound. That shout brings a mighty wind of refreshing that gently lifts up these faithful soldiers. The wounds on their bodies are transformed to iridescent gold so they shine like the many colors of heaven. Every grief, persecution, sacrifice… all that were once scars, become beautiful swathes of colored gold. “So beautiful to Me,” Jesus smiles in rapture.

Don’t Let Mistakes Of The Past Hold You Back

Then I heard the Lord say, “My love is greater than your failures. Don’t let the shame and mistakes of your past hold you back. The greatest downfall of Adam and Eve wasn’t when they ate the forbidden fruit, but when they felt that they had to hide from Me. If only they had run to Me in their failure… if only they had hidden in Me and let Me make them whole again. Learn from My servant David — I am the God who turned his greatest folly with Bathsheba into a source of greatest wisdom Solomon.”

God convicts but never condemns us. Let us respond to admonishment by running to Him! He wants to turn our aborted dreams and destinies into life-giving testimonies of His power, grace, and love!

It is time to cross over. God is moving you out of the wilderness and into the promised land. Would you say Yes to Him?

    So much confirmation of what Holy Spirit has revealed to me.It is Time,and His Bride is arising with a renewed passion and coming back to her First Love.You become what you behold and her eyes are on her Song of Songs.Our eyes must stay transfixed upon The Author and Finisher of our faith, especially in the coming seasons. As His Glory is revealed in the earth, but especially in our hearts, The Light of His Glory will always shine on any hidden places of darkness. Don’t be afraid in these times,this is not to condemn you, but to expose so you can yield even those areas up to Him. Just His work of Grace .He has been showing me that the biggest part of faith is just obedience to His Word and His leading by His still small voice…not in the whirlwind but The Quiet of your heart and soul.That’s why the enemy tries so hard to keepeverything stirred.As this precious word that has been shared,God wants us to run in to Him and His Throne Room of Grace and Mercy with absolutely no fear because we do have The Most Wonderful Advocate interceding on our behalf.May His Bride Arise and His enemies truly be scattered! Shalom.ReplyCancel

God is on the move. There’s been a breakthrough & acceleration in the spirit over the past couple of weeks — fresh anointing, new authority, greater assignments, and increased clarity + access in the spirit. It’s been an intense, exhilarating few weeks as I’ve been taken to new heights and experiences and increased tenderness toward Him. This is happening for those who have remained obedient to Him and faithful to His process, and the sense I get is Him saying, “Thank you for being faithful to me. You have earned My trust. You have been faithful in little, now I am giving so much more”.

How beautiful it is to win the trust of God. He has been building us up to this point in the last few months (read here and here), and this is just the beginning.

I sense there is a message for three groups of people in this season, and I want to share them here briefly.

1. THOSE WAITING FOR THEIR BREAKTHROUGH

Breakthrough into acceleration will come through these very critical stages.

a. Clean Up

Before God moves us into the next level, He first wants to do a thorough clean-up. This includes our relationships, finances, belief systems, and even character issues that may seem minor now. Let Him in to all areas. God loves you and He knows best. He wants to do a major clean-up so that these things will neither hinder nor stumble us — in acceleration, things grow exponentially, both the good and the bad.

God disciplines those He loves, so do not shun or despise His discipline. He wants to bring order and stability into your life.

This is a time that we must choose: are we for God or against Him? There is no sitting on the fence. He is either Lord of all, or not Lord at all. The battle lines have been drawn, this is the tipping point, and we must make a stand and choose which side of the battle we will be on.

Those who choose alignment, obedience to Him, and who would surrender to His discipline, will find freedom, peace and abundant joy. There are those who will give in to the soul instead of being led by the Spirit, and they will choose to go back to the ways that were comfortable to them. God never promised it would be easy but He did promise that it was oh so simple, and that He would be there to empower us all the way through.

Repentance is so simple. True repentance is founded in grace, and true grace leads to repentance which leads to grace. It is a simple matter of saying, “Sorry Lord, I was wrong. I want to change my ways. Help me and empower me to do so.” God is faithful and just, and He will forgive us and cleanse us.

Dear friends, I urge you. Give in to grace. Surrender to the discipline of your loving Father. Don’t let pride hold you back from the so-much-more that God wants to do in this coming season. When we soften our hearts toward Him and become like little children before their good Papa, we will gain access to the Kingdom.

b. Find Your Elijah

Seasons of alignment apply to alignment with God, and also alignment with man. Who we choose to align to in this season will greatly impact the trajectory and momentum of our journey. Be wise and discerning in the company that you keep. In the last days, there will be many who come like wolves in sheep’s clothing. Only by discernment in the Holy Spirit will we be able to perceive the difference.

Ask God for godly mentors and leaders. They will not be perfect, but when they are from God they will be given the grace to protect you and help you move into the fullness of what God has prepared for you. When you find your Elijah, become his/her Elisha by being their armor-bearer. Trust them, serve them, run with them. There is a double portion of their mantle available to you when you do, just as Elisha received his double-portion mantle from Elijah.

2. THOSE WHO HAVE BROKEN THROUGH

This is an exciting time for you! If you are in this group, your present reality is probably marked by some or more the following:

  • Divine open doors of favor and opportunity.
  • Having been re-positioned in the right place at the right time.
  • An enlargement (or stretching) of your gifts, talents, and character.
  • Clarity in the spirit like never before.
  • Encounters and experiences in the spirit.
  • A new deep hunger for the written Word of God.
  • Peace and stability in your work and what you do as God has brought divine alignment.
  • Restoration and new order in your relationships.
  • New authority and trust from heaven to legislate and rule with Him.
  • A heart that is tender before the Lord.

Now is the time to ride on the momentum of this acceleration, and increase exponentially. This is the month to grow in the strength of the Lord, in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man. It is the time to gain insight + foresight, and to prosper spiritually and naturally.

In this time of exponential growth it is important to rest in the Lord, working from victory instead of for victory.

3. LEADERS & OVERSEERS

God is bringing order to His house.

Leaders and overseers who have been entrusted with His people, His revelations, His resources, will be required to walk in such a way that they can give an account in heaven. God will ask us to give an account.

As God sweeps through His house to bring order, He is looking for those who would be faithful to steward what He has entrusted to them according to His ways. As God brings order to His house, discipline and sometimes tough love will be needed. This will mean that overseers and leaders in the church will have to choose: fear of God, or fear of man? Will they choose to please God, even if obedience to God might make them unpopular or even persecuted by their flock?

Every leader will be held accountable for how we choose to steward the people, revelation, and resources that God has entrusted to us. Everything belongs to the Lord, and we are merely stewards of them.

As we choose to put God first and align ourselves to Him, God will give us divine wisdom. We will need this heavenly insight and foresight as we move forward. In the last days, there will be many who come like wolves in sheep’s clothing. Their agenda will be to turn the eyes of God’s people away from God, and leaders will be given divine strategies to protect the sheep from these wolves.

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

Overseers, I urge you to keep yourself in God – in the Word, in prayer, and in worship through which our eyes are kept fixed upon Him – in this pivotal time of God’s calendar. In Him, you will find the wisdom and strength that you will need to guide His people into the exciting new world that God is bringing His church into!

I shared a word last month about BREAKTHROUGH, and the importance of holding on to hope as we break through into our breakthrough. Shortly after that word was released, I had a dream that I believe is the continuation of that word. This is the message of the dream.

The Lord is calling out “Don’t abandon HOPE.”

As you press in for your breakthrough, don’t leave hope behind. We’re in the season of entering into our breakthrough, and there is a reminder in the Spirit not to neglect hope in our pursuit. Now, more than ever, we must never leave Hope’s side.

I see that the enemy seeks to manipulate God’s children through subtle deception. Those he cannot discourage in their quest for breakthrough, he will distract through busyness as they press in for their breakthrough.

The Lord is reminding us to be vigilant. We must begin living in the spirit, not being led by the soul. We must cut through the layers of first and second heaven where the flesh operates and the spiritual principalities are at war, and reach a place where we operate in the third heavens where we are “seated with God in heavenly places” (Ephesians 2:6). Only then will we be able to discern with clarity and precision, able to distinguish between contending for our breakthrough vs. strife and busyness.

When we are seated with God in heavenly places, we will begin to see our world and circumstances through His eyes. No longer will we judge things according to human understanding, but according to God’s thoughts. That’s when we will begin to see all things through eyes of hope. That’s when we begin to shift atmospheres, praying and decreeing from heaven to earth instead of striving from earth to heaven.

Hope Precedes Promise and Honor

I heard the Lord say that in days to come, He is birthing in many of His people these two things: Honor and Promise.

As we hold on to hope, He will release to us promises. Old promises will begin to “suddenly” come to fulfillment. Furthermore, new promises will be deposited in us! When hope is our companion, weary hearts will begin to dream again. We will become fertile soil for new promises of God to take root and bear fruit.

After hope will come honor. People will look at our lives, the broken places from where we came, and the breakthroughs that we now have, and declare, “It could only be God. He/she could only be where they are now because of the hand of God.” Your life will become a vessel through which God is honored.

“The LORD said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.” Numbers 21:8

Jesus said, “When I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all people to myself.” When we hold on to hope, it is a prophetic declaration that we trust in His sovereignty, power, and love for us. As we lift Him up so in our lives, we are lifting up a standard in the wilderness, and He will draw all men to Himself!

Beloved, now more than ever, keep in step with hope. Keep close to hope. God is on the move!

    “praying and decreeing from heaven to earth instead of striving from earth to heaven.” Amen; this is what He gives us the authority to do in Christ! We need to keep our eyes on Jesus and seek first the kingdom of God, not allowing other things and people to distract us from Him and His purpose for our life.
    To God be the glory!

    Faith and hope seems like means the samething? ?ReplyCancel

Years ago, a seed was planted in my heart for an Esther Task Force to be assembled.

I saw a vision, a company of men & women who carried hearts of intercession, specifically for the Media & Entertainment mountain in their nation — they were being called forth, assembled, and sent out in teams or task forces. Each task force would network with other task forces across nations, encouraging and collaborating with one another to bring His Kingdom to the Media in their nation.

For many years, I kept the vision in my heart. Now, years later, the Lord has spoken that it is time for the Esther Task Force to be assembled.

Simply put, the Esther Task Force is a network of Media intercessors from across nations who will partner with one another to bring His Kingdom into the Media industry where they are.

The media belongs to the Lord. It is a powerful tool in His hand for spreading truth and establishing Kingdom culture in our lands. For too long, the enemy has hijacked Media & Entertainment to control the minds of our people. For too long, media and entertainment channels have been used as tools to spread lies, fear, confusion.

No more! God is calling for His children to arise and take back their rightful inheritance! We are called to be godly influencers. It is time to raise our voices and let the sound of Truth reverberate across our land.

It is time for Esthers – men & women with the heart of intercession – with godly voices to rise up in the Media. People who would pray for the Media in our nation — revealing the plans & plots of the enemy to silence God’s people, and releasing declarations that bring change & understanding.

We meet monthly to seek the Lord and make His declarations over the Media & Entertainment mountain in our nation. At the moment, these monthly intercession meetings will take place only in Singapore. However, I see that God will raise up other Esthers from across nations who will head up these intercessory task forces in their nation, and this network will be a place of support & empowerment for them.

To cut a long story short, if you are – called to the media and/or entertainment industry or have a desire to go into the media and/or entertainment industry, and you want to play a part in unveiling His Kingdom here on earth in your sphere of influence — we want you! Or, more to the point, God wants you!

Enlist here. You can also find out more, or write in if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them!
