I like to watch men walk. I look to see the purpose in their movement. The intention, which I believe today is called swag. Are they walking with confidence? Are they moving with the grace, dignity and purpose that GOD desires to see within them?
Their steps reveal so much. Commitment, integrity, honor, kindness, dedication, strength, power…
Have you watched a man walk beside his mother and really pay attention to how he walks? There is a care, a pride, a love. A protective quality. Have you paid attention to see how a man walks alongside his wife? There is care, commitment, love, and yes, protection. That’s easily observed by the position in which he places her as they walk. It’s the way he does it, a smoothness. It’s like a covering.
Have you noticed how a man walks and positions himself alongside his children? Same qualities, but with a different level of intensity. I would describe it as… more watchful, more observant, vigilant.
I love to see a man walk with his GOD-given greatness, head held up, confident, assured. In command of his surroundings, comfortable and present-minded. This is not a walk that carries with it arrogance, or pride or self-centeredness. No, this is a walk possessing decisiveness, destiny, direction, strategy.
I am always looking to see if men are walking with the power, with the anointing the Kingdom-Confidence of GOD within them.
But what I do not love is seeing or hearing about any man who has (temporarily) lost or misplaced his ability to walk this earth with distinction, confidence, peace, harmony, or any of the qualities of GOD.
I am praying today for men who have had their walk impaired by betrayal, deceit, manipulation, control, or any of the forms of subtle seduction… mind games perpetrated by predatory spirits.
No more traversing between darkness and light. You will not wear the face of joy, without the truth of joy being realized in your heart. No more mask of contentment, satisfaction, or feigned peace. You shall experience the richness of joy and the pleasant places in GOD. You will understand the joy of the LORD and the pleasant places that He shall bring to you.
I decree and declare that you will arrive back into your place of distinction, your place of strength, power, confidence, destiny, and direction, standing tall amongst the trees. You are moving back into the places and times that you remember, when you were not looking over your shoulder, weary of stalking or lying spirits. You are coming back to a place and a space in your life where you will no longer hear the voices of those that feed themselves on abuse of your kindness, compassion, and capacity for love.
You are walking toward light, toward the day, toward the time, and the place when their voice(s) will no longer be heard in your land. Every step you take will move you further and further away from the noise and pestilence that has been infused into your atmosphere. I call on every intercessor in agreement with this prayer, to come alongside to shut down the manipulation and control of every enemy who has exalted themselves against you, against the GOD in you! We command the voices of the lions that have roared so loudly that you have forgotten the sound of your own voice, to bow down, be silent! You are getting your voice back. The Voice of the LORD has declared it to be so.
Prayer will break the soul ties that seek to bind and constrict your movements in the earth. I decree and declare that you will exalt your voice in prayer and cause every ungodly soul tie to cease and desist their maneuvering for power and control. You shall lift up your voice in prayer and shut the mouth of deception in every lying spirit. Your voice has power and heaven is awaiting your voice. Heaven is awaiting your prophetic decrees and your prophetic declarations dispatching ministering angels to walk alongside you and those you are assigned to lift up, encourage, comfort and to weave them special garments of a prophetic covering.
Did you know, GOD is sending His angels to walk alongside you? They shall be your rearguard to block and stop every demonic attack, that seeks to sneak up from behind you. Let them do their job. Begin today, right now, knowing that every place that the soul of your feet shall tread belongs to GOD, and that He has given the territory to you! You are His son walking in His Kingdom, in kairos moments and places in time. You are the LORD’s inheritance and you have permission to pass through the King’s Land unhindered. No more looking over your should for the next wrong, the next enemy, the next problem, the next situation. I see you moving forward, full of faith and confidence, filled with the Word of GOD, well able to take territory for the Kingdom of Heaven. Angels are assigned to walk with you, every time you call upon the Name of the LORD. You were and never will be alone. To the Glory of GOD you will exercise your Kingdom authority.
You are walking into your place of stature, like the mighty men of David, who prophesied the victory over themselves and over the battlefield. They took territory in the spirit before they ever went to battle. This is the place your voice returns. This will be the place that your strength and confidence returns. This is where your walk returns.
You are the LORD’s man of Distinction, a man of Authority. Accept it. Your prayers are like precious jewels, your faith can move mountains, your vision and dreams are filled with the treasures and strategies of Heaven. Even if you don’t believe me, believe GOD. In the places where you don’t have enough faith for yourself, share mine. On the days when you have no faith, take some of mine. I have left an abundance of my faith, in this prayer. Take it, it’s yours! Rehearse the words of this prayer, Remember it. When you don’t believe in who you are, believe in who GOD says you are in this prayer.
Oppression, depression, anxiety, the voices of self- sabotage, have called you by the name, Mephibosheth. But you are no longer lame on your feet. You were never supposed to be. Never again are you allowed to be! Never again, will you give yourself permission to be. GOD has said, “Enough!” You are commanded to Arise Man of GOD, take your place and return to the Kingdom.
Prophecy to yourself today, starting today! What is your vision man of God? What do you see? and do not come back and tell me that you do not see anything… GO BACK AND LOOK AGAIN! Until you see what GOD sees… until you see what GOD is sending… until you see things, as He sees it! Go back and look again, until that Gehazi spirit in you bows down. Command it to bow down. It has to obey.
Your voice matters. It is the missing key. Be humble, be teachable, be yielded, submit to the authority of GOD, be still, be taught, be instructed, be patient, be silent (for quite sometime) and let your prayers do the talking! Be established man of GOD. Become a student of prayer, study the protocols of prayer and prophecy. Master in Heavenly Protocol and Planning.
I call you back into the Kingdom of GOD in your authority. You are needed.We have no desire to continue without you.
I don’t care who lied to you, who discouraged you, who broke your heart, who threw stones at your destiny… their reign is over. They always lied, and never did they have any power in heaven or in earth. They had to convince you that you had none, in order for them to thrive. That time is done! I speak that your walk is returning within you. Strength is coming back to your legs. You have your swag back, your identity in GOD is back.
Your walk signifies direction, destiny, power, strength, integrity, honor, vision, dreams, strategy, answers. You are dangerous, man of GOD. Solutions arrive with you when you walk in the room. You are carrying answers, remedies, strategies. You are a problem solver. You are a man of order, destiny and distinction. The enemy is trembling right now for fear that you will walk in all the words of this prayer.
Today is your new day! Today, you have the power, you call the shots!
Decree and Declare your way back home!
For the Sons of the Most High GOD, I see men as trees, walking!
In this 21 Day Season, there is a message of transformation for you. Hold your vision in your mind, with heartfelt devotion. From the time you were translated into the kingdom you were required to shift from the culture of the world to the culture of the Kingdom.
Being a powerless Christian is a decision. A decision to remain in the dark.
Now, Your ability to articulate your vision, is risen to higher heights. We command your past to be silent. Only your future has permission to speak. Be clothe in the light of GOD shifting atmospheres as you pass by. In this season, you will permanently accept your power, influence, dominion, and success. Accept your new level of access to prophetic realms, witty inventions, trade secrets of the kingdom, You will no longer be without answers, revelation knowledge, insights or wisdom. Accept prophetic recall of your dreams and visions, calling the dry bones in every place of your past, back to life. Decree life to your prophetic assignments, new connections and kingdom relationships. Command that the kingdom visions, insights and assignments that you are pursuing are now pursuing you. Hear your calling, it is calling you. Decree divine alignment.
The Kingdom of Heaven is Within You!
Final Word of Wisdom today from a Prophetess of GOD: Hold your self accountable for your greatness. More importantly, who holds you accountable for your greatness? Find someone to hold you accountable to operate in your Kingdom Gifts and Responsibilities and bring the vision forth with all intensity of forethought.
Ref: Col 1:13, Matthew 4: 16, 2Corinthians 4:3-6, 1 John 1:7, Ephesians 1:18-23, Psalm 119:105, Acts 26:18
“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” Isaiah 30:21
As some of you have seen in my classes, I place a little time and attention on showing my students patterns, sequences and connections in scripture. I call it connecting the dots. Scripture is packed with patterns, sequences which are very beneficial to us spiritually. Once we learn to focus in on the message identifying these patterns, the ultimate good that we will impart upon our own selves is the ability to detect the spiritual patterns in our lives, our dreams and our visions, etc.
Hearing, polished and refined through the Word elevates your spiritual gifting and potential.
Developing Your Spiritual Compass
“And let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself: for then shall the LORD go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines.”. 2 Samuel 5:24
Find your own way into this gifting. Move toward it. By that I am saying, pay attention to how you hear. You have to learn this about yourself. From the words and sounds that you hear, to the words and sounds that you dismiss, what patterns do you see? Focus on the sounds that that you hear which trigger insight, revelation, understanding…
Ex. In a crowded noisy space, what sounds do you focus in on? What do you hear differently? What do you hear repetitiously?… What words keep reoccurring? Which words or sounds grieve your spirit? What elevates you?
GOD bestows the gift. But once conferred, we have to receive it, own it, utilize and exercise it.
Does GOD speak to you through touch, sight or sound?
Find out. Pray, Pay Close Attention, Journal and Connect the Dots.
Two of my favorite scriptures that can help you focus on hearing the directions that lead you not just to the door of the kingdom, but to total access…. beyond the gates.
Hearing might not be your gifting, at this time. But if you don’t know, this is one form of methodology at your disposal to find out.
Connect the Dots that lead to who you are in the spirit.
Elijah was able to hear the abundance of rain- before the rain came– because his spiritual hearing was attuned to what GOD was doing in the earth. Elijah was listening for GOD. He had the witness of the Spirit of GOD, because he kept his spirit saturated in the Word, perfecting his hearing. Elijah was able to distinguish his inner voice from the voice of GOD, and disciplined himself to know the difference and follow the leading of the spirit.
No Friction in the Flow…
We have to purpose in our heart and discipline ourselves to sort out all the other voices in our lives, and learn to hear the voice of GOD above all others, even our own. This is the powerful combination that we seek. Study of the Word is our mechanism with which we can filter out the noise, and stay connected to the Spirit of GOD, which allows us to spiritually flow in sync, refining discernment, insight, hearing and perception.
Gehazi couldn’t flow with the vision & revelation. But, we are not like Gehazi.
We are coming forward spiritually ready, to do the Greater Works!
POST YOUR CONFESSION OF FAITH
11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, 12 to equipthe saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, 14 so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. 15 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ…”
This message is for my students who say that they want a higher level. Those who say, that they are ready for strong meat.
If that’s true, then you have to be ready to unlearn quite a few things that you already thought you knew. One tool and method that will be invaluable to you is to master the use of an Interlinear and see what the verse actually says. Case in Point:
REMINDER: This is just ‘pshat level. Literal interpretation only. Nothing deep or investigatory. Yet, on a basic level, we should have known this as 3 year old in Summer Bible Camp. This is a huge. This verse alone, should shift many paradigms.
Begin with Biblehub.com; Mark 11:22 The translation begins with “theou” and reads “from GOD”. Look past that for a moment and note the abbreviation for the parts of speech. ‘N-GMS’ is telling us that ‘theou’ is a Noun in the Genitive Masculine Singular, which means it is a masc, sg, possessive Noun and here it is rendered as “from GOD.”
Having faith from GOD and having the faith of GOD are two different matters. Both are a few levels above, “…having faith in GOD (KJV).” Having faith from GOD is a gift ( which I don’t think we would argue that it isn’t). Having the faith of GOD would place us at a great advantage. If we had known the expectation was to operate at such a level, understood scripture that way from the beginning and applied it to our lives daily, we would be advanced indeed.
Having the Faith of GOD… is a Completely Different Conversation
But let’s look beneath the surface a bit more and find out just what the Genitive case tell us: Genitive shows possession (although some scholars separate out possession from genitive, and define it as two separate forms. I do not. While the genitive case is not ‘always’ about possession, it is about ‘belonging to.’
That being the case, we can understand Mark 11:22 as Jesus compelling us to have the type of faith that GOD has, or to have the same level of faith as GOD. To operate in His level of Faith, just as we have learned to operate in His strength and not our own, in His ways, in His Will and not our own. We learn from Jesus to operate in GOD’s Faith and not our own.
Having faith in GOD, is sweet, but it’s operating with milk. Having the faith of GOD… that requires grit… i.e. strong meat. Ref: Hebrews 5:11-14
2 Bibles that render this passage, “… Have the faith of GOD” are Douay Rhimes Bible (1582) and Young’s Literal Bible (1862).
Compare: Galatians 2:16 “But knowing that man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ; we also believe in Christ Jesus, that we may be justified by the faith of Christ...” (both Douay Rhimes Bible and KJV). We are justified by the Faith “of” Christ, as in like manner we are to have the Faith “of” GOD.
Consider a point beyond the letter and the linguistics for a moment. Beyond all the covenants, conditions and restrictions of language, there are a few spiritual… more weightier matters to convey.
In this teaching, the limits have been lifted.
You can reach for the attribute of operating in the faith of GOD, or having faith in GOD. It’s a choice. Either is possible, yet both are not comfortable. One requires you to stretch and the other requires no action whatsoever. The existing ‘believer’ can stay well within their current comfort zone, stay completely as they are. If you hear the call to have the faith of GOD, something more is required of you.
Christ is entering Jerusalem and into the temple. The next day He moves on to Bethany and is now hungry. He sees a fig tree with leaves and no fruit. Fig trees produce fruit before the leaves open. So this particular fig tree is signaling abundance where none actually exist. The fig tree is operating against its own purpose in creation, against its own nature. It’s living in defiance to its own creation and purpose. Jesus says to the tree, “No man eat fruit of thee hereafter, forever”. In other words, “You don’t get to do your own thing, and cast off the Word of GOD in shear disobedience”.
The fig tree shrivels up and dies and the next day Peter notices the overnight change due to the LORDs Words, and ask how this is possible. The Messiah responds, “Have the faith of GOD.”
We could stop at the boundary of having faith in God, or we can proceed to the level of having the faith of GOD. Not just believing in the authority of GOD, but speaking in the authority of GOD.
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God…” Amen.
In the overall context of Mark 11, Jesus empowered the disciples to operate in Kingdom Authority.
“Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.” Isaiah 45:11 KJV
We Need These Five Things…
It’s time to respectfully place a demand on heaven for dreams, visions, insight, revelation and discernment.
Like Blind Bartimaeus, cry out for sight, from the Son of the Living GOD!
Mark 10:46-52 (KJV)
46 Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
48 Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
49 So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called.
Then they called the blind man, saying to him, “Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you.”
50 And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus.
51 So Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?”
The blind man said to Him, [a]“Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.”
52 Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has [b]made you well.” And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.

“In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. “ John 7:37 ( KJV)
I believe that we can become as trustworthy as Moses and there will be no more dark speeches, even in our dreams, even in our vision. He has demonstrated many times that He will change the entire system for His People. In a time when we need clarity the most, ask. God is Faithful.
Numbers 12:6 (KJV)
6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.
7 My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.
8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
SUNDAY, September 27th, 2020 (5781)is Holy Ground! Yom Kippur has been separated and consecrated just for you.
What if there were just one day a year that the LORD wanted to rehearse your deliverance in the ears of and in the sight of the enemy! A day GOD wanted to remind the enemy of who you are to HIM? A day that would set the tone for your whole entire new year?
Would GOD Set Aside One Day Each Year to Remind You, the entire Spirit Realm and The World at Large, that You Are Holy Unto Him?
What if there was one day in the entire year, one day in 365 days, where Your Heavenly Father set an appointment with you for deliverance?
Not a day to debate whether or not you are already saved, sanctified and delivered, but something more…
If there was one day a year, that GOD would absolutely forbid any accusations whatsoever to be leveled against you?
One day each year that GOD accepts your heart felt repentance. A day above and beyond all the legalities of our faith and all the justified claims against us?
What if there was one day in the entire year that the accuser of the brethren had no right to speak up at all, and he knew it. One day so holy, that the LORD refuses to hear any accusations, charges, judgements whatsoever, no criticisms of you of any kind…. Would you step into that day?
Yom Kippur is that day. That set apart day… above all other days of the year… a divine appointment, in which GOD would wake you up and greet you with words, so sweet as to say…
“I know the thoughts that I think toward you, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
God only requires that we proclaim His Holy Seasons.
“Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders You have done, and the plans You have for us–none can compare to You– if I would proclaim and declare of them, they are more than could be numbered.“
Every day of the year, but one… ha’satan seeks to cast accusations against you, to find fault, to kill, steal and destroy, even your very name and reputation before GOD.
On Yom Kippur, One day per year, that is so Holy before GOD, the enemy has no voice, no right, no standing to accuse, ridicule, or cast judgements.
On Yom Kippur, all charges are dropped in the Heavenly Court, all evil decrees are annulled.
Psalm 27 for Sunday, September 27th — the Day of Atonement
Proclaim this Day as Your Divine Appointment… Holy Unto the LORD
The Lord is my light (Rosh Hashana) and my salvation (Yom Kippur); whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of ; of whom shall I be afraid
2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this (ha’zote) will I be confident.
4 One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.
5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.
7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
9 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
This third I will bring through the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘They are My people,’ and they will say, ‘The LORD is our God.'” Zechariah 13:9
