How much does it cost?


Jesus is often playful with me in my visions.  My encounter with him in service last night was no different.  I was rapt in worshipping the Lord, focusing on the whiteness of His robe.  I asked the Lord to wrap me in his arms, to “envelope” me. 

He laughed at me, as He often does, and started playfully tickling me and poking me.  He said, “So, what?  So I stick a stamp on you and mail you?”  Laughing and giggling like a child as we played, I said, “YES!  Mail me!”

He started teasing me about mailing me, saying, “Priority Mail!  Express Mail! Air Mail!”

Then he stopped and looked at me, and I at him, and He asked me, “Do you know how much it cost to mail you?”  I shook my head, “No.”

He said, simply, “EVERYTHING.  It cost everything.”

WHEN the Holy Spirit Comes in Like a Flood…

washer-dryerWHEN the Holy Spirit comes in like a Flood…

Has your washing machine ever overflowed?  Mine did today.  A few days ago, it was unbalanced in the spin cycle, and started “walking” across the room.  My husband moved it back, but the drain hose had partially come out of the wall, and he didn’t see it.  So when it went into the drain cycle today, water went everywhere!  We had a bona fide flood!  The water ran through the door of the utility room and under the wall into my front room, flowing toward the front door.

I had been making preparations to house fourteen traveling ministers this weekend.  I was busily cleaning house, making beds and doing laundry.  Simultaneously, I was editing a book, ministering and making plans for upcoming events, making a shopping list for animal feed, as well as necessities for remodeling our kitchen pantry.  I had many balls in the air, trying to juggle them all simultaneously.  So, when I walked into the front room to face the flood on the floor, I almost panicked!  I knew the floor needed to be mopped, but not today!  I was too busy!

I would have given anything for a squeegee!  I grabbed a bunch of towels and threw them down to create a “dam” and to start to soak up the water.  I had the thought, “Now I will have to do another load of towels!”  This is exactly what created this flood to begin with.

As I was cleaning up this monumental, Noah-style mess, the Holy Spirit started to show me some things.  While He was speaking, I realized that there was a lesson in this for us all.

I don’t know about you, but our utility room is a hardworking room in our house.  It is part laundromat, part storage shed, and part chicken-hatching-chick-brooder area.  It is a multi-tasking room.  We have a second refrigerator and our freezer in there too, not to mention a whole cast of items that we only use occasionally.  These were tucked away, hidden in the corners of the room…you know, “out of sight, out of mind”.  As I pulled them all out, one after the other, mopping up the flood from our tile floors, the Holy Spirit spoke to me.  He simply said, “WHEN The Holy Spirit comes in like a flood…”

My bible says, “When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him (Isaiah 59:19).”  We all know that scripture, but years ago I heard it preached otherwise.  The Holy Spirit confirmed it to me today.

I heard it preached that the comma is in the wrong place, and that passage of scripture should read, “When the enemy comes in, LIKE A FLOOD, THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD WILL LIFT UP A STANDARD AGAINST HIM (emphasis mine).”  See?  That is what I believe the Holy Spirit was saying to me today.  That He is coming in like a flood against the enemy!  And as He does, He will simultaneously UNCOVER and CLEANSE what it is that He reveals – like a flood!

I had a “cleansing” dream a few nights ago.  Cleansing dreams usually involve toilets or showers.  If we are fortunate, we are alone in the dream.  In my instance, it was in my front yard and in the neighbor’s yard!  So, I knew some cleansing was coming – but I didn’t know that He meant LITERALLY!

Now, as I was mopping up the mess with my many bath towels, Holy Spirit showed me a number of things that He is cleansing in this time in our lives, beginning with me:

  1. Things that are tucked away and “hidden” in the corners: We have a wide variety of things in our utility room, things that we almost never use.  There is an extra vacuum cleaner and a dehumidifier, some wire shelving, and numerous other items “hidden” and “tucked away”, things we only pull out and use every once in a while.  Holy Spirit showed me that these equate to ACTIONS and ATTITUDES that we have.

What are some things that YOU only pull out and use occasionally?  Does a “censored” word “just slip out” every once in a while?  Do you “bite” when you get mad, however rarely?  Are you racist?  Do you get drunk?  The Holy Spirit will be working on these attitudes in His children!  God’s people MUST walk virtuously, because HOLINESS = WHOLENESS!  We need to be WHOLE in order to walk through the days to come!

  1. Dirt: The Holy Spirit showed me all the dirt that was piled up in the corners of my utility room, under the washing machine and the sink.  I was ashamed!  There is lots of dirt that we don’t ordinarily see, because it is hidden behind, and under, these items that we so seldomly pull out and use!  Holy Spirit showed me that this DIRT is the UNDERLYING CAUSES OF OUR ACTIONS AND THOUGHT PROCESSES!

What kind of DIRT do you have hidden?  As an example, there was a­ man who drank himself to sleep every year on Super Bowl Sunday because he lost his daughter one year during the game.  Ironically, she was hit by a drunk driver, and he never forgave himself for her death.  His UNFORGIVENESS punished him, year after year.

Another example is when someone “snaps” at us, or is vicious, it’s because we have unwittingly walked into their unhealed WOUND.  They “bite” back, because it hurts!  This means that they (okay, WE) simply need healing!  Holy Spirit, our Comforter and our Guide will lead us into all truth (John 16:15)!  People who were abused in some way, whether physically, emotionally or verbally usually carry shame.  He wants us healed of all that!

He will show us WHAT we need to be healed of, and the very best way to get healed, so that we don’t have these characteristics anymore.

  1. Irregularities in the foundation: There were puddles of standing water on different areas of the tile floor in my front room.  There were high areas that the water had flowed over, seeking lower ground.  The floor slants a little, too, because it used to be the front porch before we closed it in and made it our front room and home church space.  Our house was built many years ago, and although the owner/builder was a decent carpenter, our foundation is not perfectly flat.  As a result, as I was moving the water, using the towel as a squeegee, the Holy Spirit showed me the irregularities in our house’s foundation.  Holy Spirit showed me that these IRREGULARITIES are faulty belief systems that we have acquired in our walk.  We have some GOOD beliefs, but we do not have All Truth!

What kind of IRREGULARITIES do you have in your foundation in “your house”?  Do you think that God is mad at you?  Or worse, that He gave you a disease?  Do you only go to church on Sundays?  Do you always tithe and give offerings?  I am not judging anyone.  I am simply implying that there may be some “cracks” in your foundation!  God is a “foundation God”.  He will give you foundational beliefs, and build upon them.  He cannot build on a faulty foundation!

You must know that the Holy Spirit will be seeking to level out ALL the high places in your walk with the Lord.  He will simultaneously be seeking to fill in all the low spots.  Holy Spirit is looking to train you up properly.  He will make sure that your foundation is SOLID so that God can continue to build upon it, precept upon precept (see Isaiah 28:10).

  1. House looks solid, but there are gaps under the walls: As the water was trying to find the lowest possible level, it also seeped into the closet in the next room, which fortunately was also tile. Because there are irregularities in the foundation, the wall doesn’t make full contact with the floor.  It appears to be solid, but there are gaps under the wall.  The Holy Spirit showed me these GAPS will cause issues in our walk.

Do things just “LOOK GOOD” on the outside?  I know some people for whom “appearances are everything”!  They would never let you know that there is something wrong with their perfectly projected world.  When asked, they are always, “Blessed and highly favored!”  I would like to propose that God wants us to walk in TRUTH, all of it – the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.  He already knows it!  So who are we hiding it from?

Even though your wall (walk) looks solid, if there are gaps between it and your foundation, you will eventually have structural issues!  A building can only go as high as its foundation allows.  Allow the Holy Spirit to build and rebuild your foundation!  Allow the Holy Spirit to come in and fill in the gaps!  Let Him teach you what you do not know, the things that you will need to get to the next level.  Let Him work on you to change your mindsets and preconceived notions of what the Kingdom Age truly is supposed to be!  Learn to lean on other believers, because iron sharpens iron (see Proverbs 27:17).  Get involved in a community of believing believers!

  1. Things are out of place, just when I thought I was done: I finally got all the water mopped up and drained out the front door.  Turning around, I saw two, large plastic tubs with my husband’s music books in them.  They don’t belong in the front room, but they had not made it to their permanent home yet because they are large and heavy.  I moved them, and underneath was more water!  I still wasn’t done.  The Holy Spirit showed me that there are some things that are currently in our lives that He is still working on – in my life and yours.

What in your life is out of place, something that doesn’t belong where it is?  The key here is to look at your life through the lens of the Holy Spirit, because that is exactly what He is doing.  He looks at our lives, at the things that do not belong there, and He gently nudges us to move them, or helps us to remove them.  He is already at work in you. He is already working on revealing and cleansing those thoughts and attitudes, those people and circumstances, those issues, and helping to move them out of your life.  If you have not been able to move them, because they are too large and too heavy, like my husband’s tubs of music books, fret not!  The Holy Spirit is incredibly strong!  All things are possible for those who believe (Mark 9:23)!  Just believe.

  1. The Amplified says, “And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.” It turned out that the flood water made the room smell great!  It was all fresh and clean, from the washing of the water of the Word (see Ephesians 5:26).  The Holy Spirit breathed on me today through this set of unfortunate circumstances, which He turned around for my good, and YOURS!  He gave us all a lesson today, through this message.  The Holy Spirit showed me that His Water cleanses with the word.  It makes everything smell fresh and great!

If something in your life “stinks”, call on the Holy Spirit!  The Holy Spirit is “the washing machine”!  He washes us and cleanses us.  He is here to assist.  He is your paraclete, Him Who comes alongside, your helper, your comforter.  He is the Spirit of the Lord!  Jesus sent Him to us to help us, to lead us and guide us into all truth.  He is our helper.  Lean on Him!  He will be more than happy to point you to Jesus and glorify the Father!  Just like today!

  1. The cleansing is a continuous process: Even now I see two little puddles of water by the front door….

Blessings in your cleansings!

God is Sending Seeds of Multiplication! See Your Opportunity and Take It!


God is Sending Seeds of Multiplication! See Your Opportunity and Take It!

I looked on the floor this morning and saw a single pepper plant seed.  There was only one, in an area of the house that shouldn’t have ANY…the bathroom.  It was totally odd and out of place, and my eyes were drawn to it as a result.  At the same time, it was just one tiny, little seed in an ocean of marble floor tile.  It could easily have been overlooked.

To me it was obvious God had placed it in just the right spot to catch my attention.  As I looked at this little seed on the ground, I heard the Spirit say, “Seeds of Multiplication”.  I leaned over and picked it up. I examined it to confirm that it was, indeed, a pepper plant seed, and it was.

Immediately, I envisioned pepper plants growing with multiple peppers on them, each with multitudes of seeds inside each pepper.  Each seed has the potential to grow multiple pepper plants with multiple peppers on it, and multitudes of seeds in each one.  How many plants could come from this single seed?  It has the opportunity to yield astronomical numbers of fruit, multiplied and multiplied — from one single, solitary, tiny, little seed – fruitfulness forever, without end. How brilliant is our Lord?

“But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold (Matthew 13:8 KJV).”

See the opportunity and take it!  I believe God is showing us just one facet of the transfer of wealth.  The transfer of wealth is not necessarily winning a sweepstakes, or hitting the lottery.  It is seeing an opportunity for which the Lord has positioned you, and TAKING IT!

As an example, we just received the opportunity to subscribe to software “in the cloud” for less than 1/60th of the cost of a regular monthly subscription.  This is software that we truly need to do what He wants us to do.  The Lord made sure that my husband saw that offer, in such a way that he could not overlook it.  It is a benefit of working where he works, and believe me, it is a transfer of wealth from the wicked to the righteous!

“Bless the Lord, O My Soul, and forget not all His benefits (Ps. 103:2 KJV)!”

You see, it is also a BENEFIT of working for the Kingdom!  Without Him, we wouldn’t need that software as much as we do.  He knows we need it, and He is supplying it, for basically no cost.  This one collection of software will enable us to multiply our efforts for the Kingdom, and do it almost for free: a Seed of Multiplication!

God wants us to know that He is setting us into position to see that which will multiply exponentially.  It will be something small and seemingly insignificant, something that could easily be overlooked… however, it holds the key to your destiny! Just like the tiny pepper plant seed, it contains Seeds of Multiplication!

“When Isaac planted his crops that year, he harvested a hundred times more grain than he planted, for the LORD blessed him (Genesis 26:12 NLT).”

This ONE THING that God is going to show you, whatever it is, has the potential to branch out into multiple areas of fruitfulness, just like the pepper plant, to both empower you, and to fulfill your Kingdom mandate.  God will be sure that you see it, just like Moses, who turned aside to see the burning bush!  He knows what you need and will make sure you see it!  Ask Him!

And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt (Exodus 3:3).

 “Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you; seek and keep on seeking and you will find; knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who keeps on asking receives, and he who keeps on seeking finds, and to him who keeps on knocking, it will be opened (Matthew 7:7-8 AMP).”

Put a Demand on Heaven!  At the end of last year, Kingdom Promoters was a little upside down.  It costs money to go out on the road and minister, as any itinerant minister will agree.  I talked to the Lord about it, and I told the Lord that it was His job to make up that deficit.  Kingdom Promoters is His ministry, and those were His bills.  He was obligated to not only pay them, but to supply the money for 2017, to be sure that I had enough to begin this year.  I simply put a Demand on Heaven!

Now understand.  It was November. I had no more ministry events on my calendar at that point.  I was looking at a bank statement in essence at zero, no money coming in from any source, and a credit card bill of about $2000.  I had nothing to pay the bill.  However, I did have faith and determination that God was going to step in.  Sure enough, He did.  But not the way I expected!

I had been teaching free author seminars around the country for the last two years, and I felt as though the Lord was leading me to minister to His ministers, helping them get published inexpensively.  God led me to open up a small publishing company.  He named it Glorified Publishing.

It turned out that this was my Seed of Multiplication! He started sending ministers who wanted to write books! I was able to help them and minister to them by assisting them to inexpensively write and publish their books.  Within a month, those bills were paid, and within sixty days I had plenty to get Kingdom Promoters rolling in 2017, using the Seeds of Multiplication that He had supplied!

I wasn’t looking for this Seed of Multiplication, in fact, I didn’t even recognize it as a seed!  But God!   He made absolutely certain that I saw it, and pressed me to take the opportunity!  He provided this blessing, because He knew exactly what I was going to need, before I ever knew I was going to need it!

“…for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him (Matthew 6:8 NLT)!”

So look around you.  Your Seeds of Multiplication are probably completely out of place, odd and may even be easily overlooked.  However, fret not, because God is going to be sure that you “zoom-in” and focus on that thing.  He will make sure that He draws your attention to it, so that you do not overlook it.  It is YOUR blessing, a BENEFIT of where you work and for Whom – the Kingdom of God!

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom (Luke 12:32).”

Many Miracle Multiplication Seed blessings in 2017!

Jesus is taking Center Stage!

foal-hat                                   Jesus is taking Center Stage!

As I was praying for President Trump this morning I went into a vision.  I heard Jesus say, “You have plenty of word in you.  You need to have some fun!”  Jesus reached out to me with a golden mechanical arm, like the arm of the Iron Man suit, and grabbed ahold of my hand, pulling me up where He is.

I found myself sitting on a tree bough, side by side with Jesus, swinging my legs like a kid.  We were sitting above a line of horse-drawn wagons.  They were similar to stagecoaches, wooden, but not the covered variety.  The path they were driving down was directly under the tree where I was seated with Jesus on the tree bough, but on the other side of the tree trunk.  Looking down, it was dusty and unclear, kind of “grayed out”.  I could see somewhat the line of wagons that were proceeding under the tree, but not very clearly.

I thought of Zaccheus climbing into a tree to see Him (Luke 19:1-10).  His name means clean and pure, such as the first pressing of the olives to make Extra-Virgin olive oil.  I wondered if he stood up and searched for Jesus, or if he sat on a tree bough as I was doing now, waiting for the Lord to come.

Jesus asked me what I saw, and I responded, “Nothing really.”

He told me to look further down the line of passing wagons. I looked out into the distance and saw a horse, very clearly, a golden colored farm horse pulling one of the wagons.  It had a hat on, complete with a daisy!  We’ve all seen this image at some time.  I’d never contemplated why the horse had the hat on before, other than to look cute.  However, it suddenly hit me that the horse was wearing the hat to shield its eyes from the sun…it was protection!

Immediately after that vision, I was transported.  I saw myself standing in an arena, preaching, as a whitish well-trained circus horse was circling around me with no rider.  Its trainer stood behind me with a long whip in the center of the arena.  I then saw the same horse circling the arena, but this time it had a circus rider ballerina on it and no trainer.  Suddenly, it was me on the horse circling the arena.  First I was standing up and preaching as the horse circled the arena, then sitting down and preaching, still with my microphone in my hand.

I heard Jesus say, “Forget everything you’ve ever known and prepare for the ride of your life.  Don’t be like the Israelites who wandered in the desert for forty years.  Put down that mindset and get anew, get renewed.  Leave all that other stuff behind!

“Come up here on this tree bough and get higher with me.  Look down on what is going on.  You have discernment, use it.  You can see from a higher perspective when you are seated with me in high places.

“It’s emotions that drag you down into the earth realm.  You cannot see the forest for the trees when you are emotional.  Step back and see from a distance what is going on in any particular circumstance.  “The enemy uses your emotions and pushes your buttons.  You have to know that and ACT, do not REACT!  Pray for people that they respond and do not react.  There will be many opportunities to react in the days to come.

“Respond from a higher position of authority, a higher position of enlightenment.  Do not react like a brute beast.  Your hat will shield you from the things that make you emotional and make emotional decisions, even eating emotionally.”

Here’s the good news!  I believe that Jesus is giving us a “new hat” to wear!  Just like the horse in my vision wore a hat as protection from the blazing sun, this “new hat” will be one that protects us from the elements that would affect our mind, will and emotions. He wants us OUT of the earth realm, UP on that tree bough with Him, looking DOWN on the things of this world.  We were made to rule and reign from above, not from this level – this earthly plane!

The wagons and the horses are symbols of pioneering and blazing new trails, new paths, and having fun while we do it, victoriously and with authority!  Although in my vision it was “grayed out” and dusty, and not very clear right now as I looked at the wagons directly underneath me, as I look a little further down the path, it becomes clear!  We carry the supply that the world needs in our wagons – JESUS!  We have an unprecedented opportunity to blaze new paths, pioneer new trails and do new things to bring Jesus to a lost and dying world.

I also believe that the Lord is giving us the opportunity to do things that have never been done while preaching the gospel.  In my vision, He initially had me in the arena while the horse with the trainer and then the circus rider entertained the crowd.  This symbolically stood for Christians not being “the main event”, so to speak, but we were there in the background, even underground in some instances.  I believe God is changing this!  In my vision, God moved me ONTO the horse, both standing and sitting, preaching the Gospel, as the horse circled the arena.  This to me means that He is MOVING US INTO THE MAIN ARENA, into the limelight – we are becoming the main event!  HIS WORD is becoming the main event!  Jesus is taking center stage!

This is important for many reasons!  It is easy to get lost in the background, in the midst of “white noise” in this world.  It is entirely different when God’s Word and His ministries shine in the limelight.    We now have a President who is “UN-Persecuting” Christians!  He is bringing us once again into the limelight!  We will be able to preach the Gospel, OPENLY, unlike the last several years.  We will no longer be in the background, the “silent majority”.  Instead, we will openly rule and reign in this country, and as the USA goes, so goes the world!

Initially I was standing on the horse as I preached, then I was seated.  I believe that initially we will have to “STAND UP” for what we believe, but as time goes on, we will take a seat and “settle in” to what is God’s will and our inheritance…FREEDOM!  Experiencing Jesus is freedom!

One example of this is that the foothold that we have in Hollywood will increase exponentially in the next short while.   I believe that our toehold will become a bona fide stance, a Christian movement!  I believe that we will see more and more Christian movies coming out, proclaiming and declaring the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Some of these movies will become even more mainstream than what we have seen to date.  Furthermore, I believe some “closet Christian” movie stars will start coming out of the closet, now that it is politically possible!  Some of these Christian movie stars will take a stand for purity, and justice, and they will make being Christian “cool”!  It will be fashionable to be pure, and holy, unlike before.  Instead of Hollywood, I believe it will henceforth be known as HOLY-Would!

I believe that holiness will spill over into ALL the arts and sciences, government, family – in fact, I believe that God is taking back His mountains – all SEVEN of them!

God is doing a new thing all over the world!  He desires that we take our position “on the tree bough” with Him, seated at His side, in high places, in heavenly places.  Ask Him for your “new hat”, the one that will shield you from the barbs of the enemy that are aimed at your soul to push the buttons of your emotions.  This new hat will guard your heart, “…for out of it flows the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23).”  Get ready to ride your horse and take your wagon to new territory for the glory of God, be center stage, and enjoy every minute of it!

In this unprecedented time in history, the GO-BUTTON has finally been pushed.  Let’s Go!

Safety of Our Circumstances

20160303_121238Feeding our bunnies a couple days ago, one of the youngsters was so anxious for the food that it was standing on its hind legs, with its paws on the cage door.  I opened the cage, expecting it to step back, but instead it lost its balance and fell out onto the ground.  I quickly grabbed it and put it back in the cage, and it joined its brothers and sisters at the food bowl. 

This morning, another of the cages had a similar incident.  This time, I was able to just push it back inside, before it had the opportunity to fall.

Coming out of my mouth, and my heart, was this:

“You need to stay inside your cage, little bunny.  There are things out here that want to eat you.  The cage is not to keep you IN, but to keep them OUT!”

That word went off inside of me, resonating so strongly!  I believe it is a Word from the Lord for some.  If you feel like you are caged in, that you are tied up, frustrated with circumstances that simply will not let you advance, perhaps it is God keeping you safe!

Sometimes we are so anxious and impatient for the “food” that we know is coming – revival – that we stand up and push against the door, or are even pounding on it for it to open.  Sometimes, it’s not the right door!  Or, perhaps, we are simply not ready, and lose our balance, falling into some ditch of doctrine.  Thankfully we have a God that will pick us up off the ground, and put us back into safety with our brothers and sisters, at the right food bowl for us!  

Remember, the enemy prowls about, roaring like a lion, looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).  God may have you in a “safe place”, sequestered even, to keep you from being eaten up!  By keeping you IN, He is keeping the enemy OUT!

If this is you, praise God, and thank Him for the safety of your circumstances!  He is deliberately keeping you safe, and in the fullness of time – in God’s timing – He will let you out to run free!

God’s “Cheat Sheet” for 2017


Why are you looking at the door?  Walk through it!  

God’s Cheat Sheet to pass the tests of 2017!

Why are you looking at the door?  Walk through it!  God’s Cheat Sheet to pass the tests of 2017!

In a vision recently, I saw a door open in the heavenlies.  The door and the frame had gray-white paint, and the paint was badly peeling.  The sky was blue and rose and orange and purple and there were clouds below the door and in the background.  The doorway itself seemed to be nestled in a bed of cloud.

“After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven (Revelation 4:1 Amplified)!”

The doorway was cracked open, not fully, maybe ten or twelve inches, just enough to see through it.  As I watched, the door closed with a click.  I felt panic, and in the vision, I heard myself saying, “Oh, NO!”  At that moment, the Lord reminded me that doors that He opened no man can shut (see Revelation 3:7 and 3:8).  Then, as I watched, the door swung open again, seemingly by itself!

I found myself studying the paint on the door frame, looking at it intently.  The frame was very sturdy, and the door was solid wood – however, it was old and peeling badly.  There was a familiar feel to the paint, as if I had seen it before.  In fact, I felt strongly as if I really KNEW this door and this paint.  Under the badly peeling paint was a dark gray primer.  The paint had curled up, pulling away from the primer and the frame.  One could tell that it had been a long time since it had been painted.

The Lord said to me, “Why are you looking at the door?  Walk through it!”

 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me (Revelation 3:20).”

At the end of the vision, the Lord told me to study the verse in Revelation 4:1 about the door, both what comes before, and what comes after.

I believe the open door stands for God’s prophetic promises.   I was focused on the paint in this vision. In fact, I studied it intently, and I was drawn to the primer.  I KNEW that paint!  I was familiar with that paint!  I studied that paint and that doorframe.  I have heard the prophetic promises of God, and I know them intimately!  That is why that paint was so familiar to me.  I know them by His Word!  I have studied the prophetic promises of God, and have received many prophetic promises of my own.

The primer paint on the door frame was intact; it was the paint that was peeling.  Those who have ever painted anything know that paint primer must be applied first.  Primer, the undercoating that goes beneath the paint, has what is known as “tooth”.  It is this “tooth” that holds the paint, and hangs onto it.  “Tooth” in Hebrew is the noun “shen”, whose verb-form means “to sharpen”.  Some other root-words of the noun “shen” mean “old”, “asleep”, “to repeat” and “scarlet”.

I believe God is speaking to us through that paint!  I believe, in 2017, that God is saying for those who have held onto His prophetic promises, and those who have allowed Him to sharpen them in the last season, that He is repeating His promises once again!  These are the same promises that seemed to be too old and asleep to come true – but will be made manifest by the scarlet blood of Jesus!

The Original Framework

I believe the old frame was the original framework of things that have not yet come to pass.  The frame in the vision was sturdy and solid.  God’s Word is true and His prophetic promises to us are unfailing.  The peeling paint says that it’s just been a really long time!  However, now the door is OPEN, and even if the door swings closed with a “click”, that God will make sure it swings wide open once again!

The PRIMER on the door frame was intact; it was the paint that was peeling.  The primer in elementary school teaches young students the basics of education, and for us of faith, the Word is no different.  God’s promises are the basics of our faith!  His Word is the building block upon which all His promises rest.  His Word is unfailing.  His Word never comes back void, but rather will accomplish the thing for which it was sent.

“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it (Isaiah 55:11 KJV).”

Here is the Good News for 2017:  Your promises from the Lord are still good!  He hasn’t changed His mind.  They are still going to come true – but they may look different than what you expect.  The paint is peeling, unveiling the NEW THING that the Lord is giving you —  the same promises that He gave you so long ago!

Hours later, the Lord reminded me that I just needed to walk through the door.  It’s a setup – a divine, Holy Ghost setup!  The door is standing open in the heavenlies!  Just walk through it!  He wants you to do it, and He is going to help you!

I believe this year, 2017, will be a year of testing for many – and you will pass!  I was in prayer this morning, and  I believe I heard the Lord say to me that I needed to change my attitude and that He was going to be “roto-rootering” me to cleanse me of bad thought processes.  In essence, He told me he would be cleansing me from the inside out.  He specifically mentioned He would be giving me trials to make me strong, sending me through tribulation and testing — all for His glory, of course.

I didn’t hesitate, and I didn’t blink.  I really DID think, and respond in my heart, just like Mary: “Behold, I am the handmaiden of the Lord; let it be done to me according to what you have said (Luke 1:38).  Even so, for just a nano-second, I did have a fleeting thought of “OH NO!”, which seems to be a recurring thought process here!  However, it was so fleeting that it never really grew into a sentiment.

Let me explain why this is important to us all, in this season, in 2017.

Right before the Lord reminded me that the door is OPEN, that it is a Holy Ghost set-up and all I needed to do is walk through it, He told me that He had tested me!  You see, this morning was a test, and I passed!  I didn’t realize I was in a test, I was just in prayer!  He said to me, “You didn’t even flinch this morning when I told you that I was going to be giving you tests and trials to change your attitude.”

It’s true!  I didn’t complain, I simply said, “Let it be done.  Cleanse me Lord!”  That was one such test, and because I have passed that test, He released to me this revelation – that most of us are going to undergo testing in 2017.  But that is GOOD NEWS because the door is open!  He wants you to walk through it!  He wants you to pass the tests!  He has even given you the answers in advance!

Pay attention, because you may already be in a test!  In my case, He told me He would be testing me.  I just didn’t know that He was testing me right that second, even as He was telling me that He would be testing me!

God is giving us a “cheat sheet”!  He is giving us the answers to pass the tests! 

You’ve come with me this far, go with me just a little bit further!  God WANTS us to pass His tests so that He can fulfill the prophetic promises that He has made to us and for us.  Don’t be afraid!  The door is open!  He is helping you to pass with ease the tests you will encounter in 2017!  

Lessons learned to pass the tests of 2017:

  1. Don’t complain. Whatever God is going to do for you, through you and with you, requires spiritual maturity.  You cannot have a testimony without a test.  You cannot be promoted without a test.  Do not grumble if it seems that God is testing you, because He is!  When you pass that test, you will be promoted!
  2. Say Yes! Just say YES!  No matter what the question is, say YES LORD.  Your door is open in the heavens.  God wants you to walk through it!  Just say YES!

And finally, remember: 

Don’t LOOK at the door!  Walk through it!  Your inheritance and your prophetic promises are waiting for you on the other side!

Going Forward


I am hearing more and more, every day, from every conceivable direction, this phrase – Going Forward.  I am not on social media right now, so I have more ‘quiet time’ with the Lord .  This makes me acutely aware of Him speaking to me in other ways.

A couple of weeks ago, I was walking through my kitchen.  A sales circular on my kitchen island caught my eye.  It showed a child on a hoverboard, with a caption saying, “GOING FORWARD”.  That word hit me so hard in my spirit!  I knew that God was talking through that sales circular.  It was as if He was announcing to the world the new time and season (see 1 Chronicles 12:32)!

I did a podcast recently, and I really felt as though God was speaking this particular word very strongly – Going Forward.  It’s more than a statement, it’s a command.  The Lord has spoken:  We are Going Forward.  No matter what, as a body, as a team, as a family, as the Bride of Christ – We are Going Forward!

Exodus 14:15-16 King James Version (KJV)

15 And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:

16 But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.

Many of us have been ripped out of our comfort zones.  Some of our worlds have been completely turned upside down!  For most of us, God has torn us out of our surroundings and is replanting us someplace entirely new. Whether that is physically, relationally or spiritually matters not.  God is on the move.  He is Going Forward, and He is taking all of us with him!  He loves you too much to leave you behind.

The season that we are in is one of tremendous movement.  There is a lot of commotion, a lot of emotion, a tremendous amount of busyness for the kingdom and I believe a lot of joy that is about to be released.  It’s so heavy in the air, it reminds me of a water balloon about to burst…with JOY!

I also sense multiple things going on, simultaneously, in many peoples’ lives, similar to a three-ring circus.  I hear fruitfulness and answered prayer. Prophetic words coming to pass that were given a long time ago.  Dreams and visions that God gave us years ago are coming to fruition now.  And, Going Forward, JOY!  Lots and Lots of joy!

I believe a lot of people will finally figure out where they fit into the body this year.  Others will experience the knowing of their gifts, and begin to use them.  I also feel that many of our family members that wandered away from the flock will be headed back home soon.  Going Forward, we will be more effective as a team, as a body, because we have learned the meaning of true unity.  We have learned how to press in, as one, to get the job done!  What a way to begin the year!

Does a lot of this sound familiar?  There’s only one God, and He is speaking the same word to us all.  You’ve been hearing it and feeling it, too! In fact, you may already be seeing some of this in your own life. I know I am!  We are Going Forward!

Back in 2011, the Lord gave me a dream one Sunday after church.  In it, He told me He was teaching me how to harness the energy of the stars.  He explained that I was going to give it away, and become abundantly wealthy in so doing.  Doesn’t that sound upside down, just like the Kingdom?  This dream started to come true in 2015, and is still coming true every day!

So my point is this:  God is Going Forward, and He is taking you with Him.   He keeps His promises and He is keeping them with you.  I want you to know that this is the year your dreams are coming true, too!

Pray for Your Angels to Come!!! Re-Posting Steve Shultz’ Elijah List Word

warring-angelThis is a first for me, to re-post a word from the Elijah List, other than my own.  LOL.  However, I feel an urgency on this word, and want to be sure that it reaches my friends and family, both spiritual and natural.

Just last night the Lord urged me to cry out for my Angels, to see them and work with them.  Then this morning, He started to download a prayer strategy for BREAKTHROUGH out of Mark 7, called, “On Your Mark!”  That’s later, but for now, PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!!!


Steve Shultz: “I Saw Angels At Almost the ‘Speed of Light!’ You Must Pray Them Through For Yourself and For Our Nation!”

“I Saw Angels At Almost the ‘Speed of Light!’ You Must Pray Them Through For Yourself and For Our Nation!” Steve Shultz, Albany, OR

Early yesterday morning, while it was still dark outside, I began to see in the spirit angels up against a blue sky, traveling at almost “light speed” all over the United States of America on huge, important assignments. The air was blurry with the rush of angels! It was an amazing thing to see.

Though the skies were literally FILLED with angels traveling throughout the US, not even one angel veered from its course. Each angel knew what the task was that they were assigned to and paid no attention to other problem areas in the nation.

Angels Assigned to War Zones!

There were pockets of dark activity below, and these angels and angelic army forces, who were assigned to these “war zones” in the US, were doing their fighting with amazing and purposeful focus. I knew this was going on throughout the earth but my focus was our USA skies.

I felt in my spirit that there was a “call to pray” to “strengthen these angels in their fight.” God designed the earth and the whole cosmos to work through the prayers of the saints. Thus, when saints pray, angels are more successful. (Photo by Marybeth Stafford “Fear Not” via

Daniel prayed for 21 days and even then, Gabriel had to have more help from Michael, the archangel, to get through that “war zone” to Daniel (see Daniel 10).

It is even more so today with more than 7 billion souls on earth – the saint’s prayers are needed. YOUR PRAYERS ARE NEEDED for the very angelic help you are seeking.

Strategic Prayer for Warring Angels, For USA and For Our Families

1. Pray for Angels on Assignment to complete each assignment without interference for you, for your family, and for your nation.

2. Pray that the USA will be protected from within and from without by these angels – from more terrorist activity. Pray for other nations in the same way!

3. Pray for your family members and friends. Pray for them by name. I was reminded the other day by Cindy Jacobs to pray “Psalm 91” over all our family members. Do that for your family and for the family of God – the Body of Christ. Especially pray Psalm 91:9-12 (see below) about ANGELIC PROTECTION!

4. Pray that the post-election chaos will die down and that we will have a peaceful transition from one administration to the next in the White House.

5. Pray against all terrorist acts. Ask God to send Angels throughout the earth and throughout the US – thwarting terrorist attacks.

6. Ask God to send yet more angels than He has already sent. He literally has more than enough angels, but GOD SEEKS OUR PRAYERS TO FULFILL HIS WILL. THAT’S HOW HE SET UP THE UNIVERSE. YOUR PRAYERS ARE NEEDED!

My personal testimony of praying for Angels: We have always prayed for thousands of angels to protect us, personally. For decades we’ve prayed this way. Many times, Seers or Prophets have been shocked by what they saw protecting our land and property. Swarms and swarms of God’s angels! We’ve prayed them in for years. You must do the same. (Photo by Jennifer Page “Brush of Angels Wings” via

Again, God has more than enough to send thousands of angels your direction, but always keep praying for this! Don’t be stingy in your prayers. PRAY BIG PRAYERS FOR BIG ANGELS FOR EVEN THE TINIEST PROBLEMS…AND OF COURSE THE HUGE PROBLEMS AS WELL.

Read this carefully, especially verses 9-12:

Psalm 91 NIV:
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely He will save you from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 No harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 They will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he loves Me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges My name.
15 He will call on Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation.” (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

God said: It’s Fifth and Ten! The Grace Down

img_20161108_2233341God said: It’s Fifth and Ten! The Grace Down

I had a vision in church a few weeks before the elections. In this vision, the Lord placed me on the sidelines of a football game. The two teams were faced off on the field, helmet to helmet across the line of scrimmage, but I couldn’t tell them apart! They were wearing the exact same colors – white, blue and little bits of yellow. As I stood watching them, I clearly heard the Lord announce: “IT’S FIFTH AND TEN!

In the natural, in the game of American football this is not possible. Unless there is an error or a violation of some kind, there are only four ‘downs’, or chances, for the team with possession of the ball to successfully move it ten-yards down the field. Often during a game one will hear the announcer say that it is “first and ten”, meaning it is first down with ten-yards to go. Hearing “fourth and ten” is less common, but it happens.

The point is this — there are not FIVE downs! There are only four downs – four chances – to get it right, make the play and move toward winning the game. This is the goal of both teams! No team gets FIVE chances to move the ball … that is, unless you are on God’s team! I believe that is why both teams wore the same uniform — because God was showing me that we are ALL on the same team!

I clearly heard the Lord say it was “Fifth and Ten”, meaning, it was fifth down with ten yards to go. That means that God has given us a GRACE DOWN – another chance to go the whole distance! The Lord has given us a supernatural opportunity – an extra, unprecedented chance to get it right!

God blessed us with a Christian President in Donald J. Trump. Because we now have a pro-Christian leader, who is also pro-Israel, we can expect God to bless both him and all of us! That is the hand of God at work – the “Grace Down” in action! God turned it all around to work for our benefit. “We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose (Rom. 8:28).

I believe another reason God placed us all in the same uniform is because in His eyes, there is no difference between us. He sees us as all the same! “There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus (Gal. 3:28).” Even though for a while as a body we were divided, God still saw us as all on the same team.

Now, the division is over! The map of the states that voted for President Trump was covered in red. No one can miss the obvious picture of the blood of Jesus covering most of the map of the USA, right down the center of the country! This is the only division God will allow – for Himself to be in the middle of everything that we speak, think and do.

So, what do we do now? We have another chance. What are all the things that you have said to yourself, “If I could only do it over again I would (fill in the blank)…” Good news, because today is that day! You have another chance! You have another opportunity to love someone; another opportunity to bless someone. You now have another opportunity to be faithful, diligent and supportive. You have another opportunity to remain vocal about your faith, and if you haven’t been, get vocal!  God has given you another chance.

You have yet another opportunity to use your giftings for the Kingdom. You have another opportunity to tell someone about Christ. God has given us another chance to do the things that He has asked us to do, to help usher in Revival.  As God said to Bob Jones, “Have you learned how to love?”  That is our most urgent reason for another chance!  Thank you Jesus!

God has seen fit to give us another chance, the Grace Down. What are you going to do with yours?

Money – Have all you want!

Heart made of few dollar papersThe last couple of days I have been reflecting on a credit card that we have that is used for ministry expenses.  It’s pretty full, and I have been sorrowfully speaking to the Lord about it.  The reason is because I really feel that, although it’s money spent on behalf of the ministry, it may not ALL have been His idea. It was all well-intentioned, and I do my very best to be a good steward of ministry finances.   Every penny went toward some ministry-related purpose, but I didn’t ask Him before I spent every penny of it.

He has assured me, in His quiet way, without telling me HOW, that He would take care of it.

BUT, typically me, once again I was thinking this morning about the debt that has been incurred on behalf of the ministry.  The Lord asked me, “What is the one thing ALL of you have in common?  What is the ONE THING all of you need, every day?  It’s MONEY.  You worry about money.  Why?  You once traded rocks and beans, then animals, and then little pieces of metal that came out of the ground.  Money is so trivial, it is INCONSEQUENTIAL.  It is the least of your concerns.”

I cried out, FATHER GOD!  Forgive me!

He silenced me right away by saying, “It’s alright, Little One.  You hear Me.  You know from where your Help comes.  When I tell you to be still and stop worrying, you do.  You know Me.  I am using this as an example in your life, to show all My people how truly great IAM.”

So, through a quick series of events this morning that came after He spoke these words to me, I learned that He meant exactly what He said.  He sent money – a few hundred dollars — in a couple of different ways this morning, rapid-fire, and it brought tears to my eyes!  It’s still not enough to cover the entire amount (yet!) … BUT GOD!

Listen:  Money means NOTHING to Him.  You can have as much of it as you want!  It’s your HEART that He is after.  It’s your HEART attitude toward money that matters to Him.  Money is just a method of bartering – nothing more.  He was really clear about that when he said that we once used rocks and beans.  It is only a method of trading.

One of the gals at my conference yesterday, Vanessa Clark, spoke a true word about God’s character.  Using the analogy of mothers’ milk, she said that God makes the provision in advance – so that it is available before we ever need it!  A mother’s breasts are filled with provision and ready for the baby before it is born!  God makes provision for us before we ever need it from the time before we are born.  Why would we think that He wouldn’t make provision for us from that time forward?

El Shaddai, also known as “the many breasted one”.  Shad in Hebrew literally means breast, and “El Shaddai” means “God (is) my Breast/s”,  my All-Sufficient Provider, God of all the universe, Parent to the human race.  He is not going to leave us hungry and alone, in fact, he gives us provision in so many different ways that it staggers the imagination.  Just the fact that He and Jesus together decided that Jesus would have to die on the cross for us – before ANY of us ever existed – should be enough proof for us.

We need to stop worrying about finances.  We need to put our trust in God and KNOW that He will supply our every need.  In fact, if you will just STOP and give it all to God, right now, He will gladly take it.  He will supply your need, take your stress and worries, and give you the oil of gladness in return!

The things that happened for me and for Kingdom Promoters Ministry today didn’t just suddenly happen TODAY.  They came to fruition today in the fullness of time.  They actually were put into motion a long time ago.  He knew well before I did that I would have a financial need due to furthering His Kingdom! God made provision for the purpose of paying for ministry expenses – long before I ever knew I would need it.

He has been telling us since the beginning of time that He is in control and that we should take no thought for today, o ye of little faith, what we are going to wear or what we are going to eat.  Jesus said our Father in heaven knows we need these things.  Our Daddy will never let us down.  We need to finally GET THIS, really get it in our spirit men.

He is just, and He is faithful.  He knows what you will need before you ever know you will need it.  Rest in Him.  Rest in His Word.  Rest in His Truth.  You will be just fine!
