I was praying tonight and the Holy Spirit told me to open the Bible to Romans 12:18 – I had no clue what that verse said. Sure enough the scripture said, “If it is possible, as far as it depends upon you, live at peace with all people.” I was flabbergasted because, a few hours ago, I was addressing a similar issue in a political group I am involved in.

In the group, there has been so much infighting and it is taking away from the original aim of the group – in the same way, there is so much infighting in the church.

There are over 41,000 denominations across the world in Christianity – that’s highly disturbing. The Lord said, “I in them and You in Me, so that they may be brought into complete unity with Me.” So why so many denominations?

Petty infighting – that is what it goes back to almost always. Disagreements about one verse or another, petty arguments, finances, etc. Almost always denominations are caused by simple disagreements that really don’t matter in light of eternity.

But the Bible says we should live at peace with all people – granted…some people are not safe to be around but that’s what this verse is talking about. The verse is saying that when it IS possible and safe to live in peace with others, do so. This means we should put our petty differences aside and unite.

Love is always the key to getting things done – so whether you are part of a politic group or following Jesus, love is ALWAYS the answer. If we want to change the world for God, we must learn to love like Jesus does.

It’s been seven years since I last wrote in the blog – in fact, I didn’t even know this blog still existed until last week. Many whom used to read this blog haven’t spoken to me for years. You see, the “group” of Christians I was involved in, which I called the “bliss crowd,” have almost all walked away from Jesus. The suffering got to be too bad for them and they walked away…they left Him because the pain was too great.

I understand – but I never left Him. You see, the past seven years have been absolutely horrific for me, as well. In July 2010, I began to suffer in ways previously unimagined. Most of the bliss crowd didn’t know this but I am a survivor of Satanic Ritualistic Abuse. I always knew I had been abused but I didn’t want to face it. The pain was too great. But I was pretty much forced to address my pain in 2010.

For every survivor of SRA, there is a call-back date they are required to come to cult by – and for me, that was my 20th birthday. Because I refused to denounce Jesus, they began to harass, torture, and attack me relentlessly. I’m not going to go into the details here but I will say that the torture was horrendous.

In early 2011, my health began to steadily decline. I got sick with Multiple Myeloma in 2012 and I actually died twice – then, Jesus brought me back. In April 2013, Jesus healed me of MM. At the end of 2013, however, I got sick again – this time with bone cancer. I’m still fighting bone cancer three and a half years later.

Had that been my only suffering, I would not have been so worn down by it – but it wasn’t. The torture from the cult – threatening to kill me, rape me, torture me, etc., that’s been the hardest part. I have had the highest people in luciferianism threaten my life over and over again and torture me in ways I am unprepared to speak about… but, because of the suffering, hundreds of thousands of luciferians have come to Jesus.

I can’t tell you how many people have come to Jesus just because I refused to hate them when they were torturing/threatening/abusing me. Every time, although my physical and emotional being is weak, He has used me to show His Love through. Then, quickly, the cult member/s, who are hurting me, see Jesus and want to come to Him.

Since 2009, over two million people (whom we know of) have come into the Kingdom of God specifically through our ministry – and many of them have been in the occult.

Some of you out there have given up on Jesus because the suffering has been too bad – maybe some of my old friends are reading this, people I used to be blasted in Holy Spirit with at conferences…and maybe you’ve wonder why you drifted away. I understand.

However, the darker your life is right now is the exact amount of His Light that can shine through you – the more darkness you encounter, the more light of His Presence can be seen in you…if you only surrender to Him.

So, please return to Jesus. Don’t keep floundering. He loves you so much and wants to use your season of suffering to bring forth His Presence in (and through) you like never before.

With His Love and mine,

Day Two:

The Word Illuminates

      As we learned last week, in order to walk closer to Jesus and be used in revival, we must be willing to die to our fleshly desires and ask Him to increase His presence in our lives. One of the main ways this is accomplished is by utilizing the love-letter He has given us – only by understanding and utilizing the Word of God correctly can we understand what He wants us to become.

Interestingly enough, I downloaded a new C.D. from my favorite worship leaders, Alberto and Kimberly Rivera, the other night and I’m playing it as I write this. As soon as I began writing day two, a song talking about Him lighting the way for us to have a relationship with Him came on. This wasn’t planned; it’s the first time I’m listening to this whole C.D.

The lyrics say:

Thank-You for lighting the way,

Thank-You for lighting the way with the light of Your Face

Thank-You for lighting our way,

You never stop pursuing, You never stop drawing…

You run…(repeat several times) with outstretched arms

Wow! I am in awe that this song came on the very second I started writing about Him using His Words as light in the darkness of our sin filled world. I believe the Lord used this as a sign to me (and maybe you) that He’s confirming the importance of His Word.

He wants us to utilize His Word in our lives – allowing His Word to illuminate the darkest places of our souls. One of the first scripture verses (Genesis 1:3) says that the Lord spoke light and light came forth. Of course, that verse was talking about physical light and darkness (day and night), but, this verse is a good analogy of His Word lighting up the darkness within us. His Word has power and exposes all of our secrets, even things we may not know about ourselves.

Remember, just like Adam, Eve, and Cain tried to hide their sins before the Lord and couldn’t, neither can we hide our sins from Him. It’s time that we, as followers of Jesus’, ask Him to light up the darkest of places in our soul.

Nobody likes to expose their sins, I know that. It hurts to look at yourself and see all this darkness and sin rotting your heart; trust me, I get that. But so does Jesus. He knows what’s in our hearts to begin with, so why do we think we can hide it from Him? When we ask Him to expose our darkness to Him, we are giving Him ultimate control and lucifer loses his power in our lives. Lucifer can only cause us to fall away from Jesus if we allow him to continue controlling our sinful desires.

Psalm 119:105 says, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

When we grow closer to Jesus, He will open His Word up to us more and we will see certain truths illuminated in the Word that we may not have seen otherwise. When we ask Him to expose our sins and the darkness within us, He will shine a light on certain verses that will unlock the keys to repentance in our heart.

The Word gives us a better understanding of what Jesus expects from us – it will help us understand our sin struggles, temptations, and sinful nature. When we allow His Word to live in and through us, we will begin living a holier lifestyle before Him.

Scriptures to Meditate Upon

“I have stored up Your word in my heart, that I might not sin against You.” – Psalm 119:11

“And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” – Gen. 1:3

“Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.” – James 1:21

Foundations to Revival Key One:

Repentance

      What is the number one key that unlocks the door for revival? What is the foundation that God lays before revival takes place? Repentance. Every genuine move of God begins with repentance. If we wish to go deeper into God’s Presence and desire to be used as revivalists, we must first repent.

I’m not just talking about asking Jesus to be your Savior, because if you’re reading this manual, you’re probably already saved. Getting saved is not the end to what I call the “repentance process,” it’s only the beginning. Granted, it is the most important part of the process – we cannot know God without following Jesus, of course – but, it’s not the only part.

This week, we will learn about the differences and importance of initial repentance, day-to-day repentance, corporate repentance, and intercessory repentance. In a lot of teachings about repentance, intercessory and corporate repentance is taught as the same thing; however, Holy Spirit has taught our ministry team that they are, in fact, two very different things. They are both needed, if we desire to see revival happen.

2 Chron. 7: 13-14 says, “If I shut up the sky until no rain falls, or if I bid locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, then, if My people who belong to Me, humble themselves and pray and seek My Presence, turning from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven and forgive their sins and heal My land.”

 

This is one of the most popular scripture verses about repentance and one of our favorite scripture verses in the entire Bible. This verse alone could be discussed in an entire book itself – and maybe someday we will make a book discussing this in length. However, let’s focus on the top five points in this scripture verse.

  • The Lord will judge His people unless they repent

2 Chron. 7:13 talks about how the Lord is mulling over whether or not to send judgment onto His people. But first, let’s talk about the context of this verse briefly – He was addressing Solomon’s prayers over the temple. However, the Lord was warning Solomon that if His people choose to follow after other gods then He would send judgment upon them.

It’s important to note that God is not cruel nor does He delight in people suffering, however, He does desire that His people stick close to Him and that they are not swayed by false gods or teachings.

In those days, the people of Israel went back and forth in their worship of Him – to put it simply, they were lukewarm fence riders. Many of them chose to follow the One true God when it suited them, but were led astray by many of the same false gods they had worshiped in Egypt. So, the Lord was warning Solomon that, if the people followed the false gods again, He would send judgment that would not stop until they repented.

2 Chron. 7:13 rings true even today. Many of the “Christians” in the western church have been led astray by false teachers and unbiblical doctrines. Instead of being encouraged to grow in the Word themselves, they’ve been taught to listen to so-and-so and not question anything. The Lord’s Heart is broken over the state of the western church and if we desire to be used as revivalists, we must come into the understanding that repentance is needed above all else.

In Rev. 3:15, the Lord addressed the church of Laodicea (which was very much like the American/western church of today) and told them He’d rather them be hot or cold, instead of lukewarm. If we want to see revival take place, the church MUST be repentant.

We must be willing vessels that are more concerned with having an intimate walk with Jesus than we are about what other people think. In other words, we must stop riding the fence, like the Israelites were doing. Now, don’t get me wrong: this is NOT directed at every single person in the American/western church, this is addressing those who follow greasy grace, lukewarm Christianity.

There are some very strong Christians and churches in the western world, but the sad fact is that the majority of the teachings you hear on Christian television today – or even during your local services – are watered-down heresies, focused on get-rich-quick schemes and a “you-centric” Gospel of lies. Christianity was never meant to be “you-centric,” it was always meant to be Jesus-centric.

If we want to see revival happen in the world, we must be realize what the greatest heresies and false doctrines being taught in the body of Christ are and we must warn others. We must repent before Him and ask Him to use us as pure, unfiltered streams of His Gospel and His Truth.

If we don’t take responsibility for the false doctrines and false teachers in the body of Christ, He will send His judgment like He promised He would to the Israelites. He doesn’t want to do that, but He never changes His Ways. Therefore, we must take the initiative ourselves and begin being like a John the Baptist, calling out for repentance in the wilderness of the lukewarm church.

2.)    He desires us to offer our repentance in humility

The Bible speaks about the dangers of pride and arrogance over and over again (e.g., Isaiah 2:12, Isaiah 23:9, James 4:6, James 4:10, Phil. 2:3, etc.) and therefore, prideful “repentance” is not a form of repentance at all, but rather, a stench to the Lord.

The Hebrew word for “humble” is rpk (pronounced: kaw-nah). It means to bend a knee, to fall into submission, to be brought low, etc. Now, God does not like humiliating human beings, He’s not some bully that wants to makes other feel bad about themselves. However, He DOES  want us, as His people, to realize our sinful ways and repent from them.

What He’s saying in this verse is that He wants us to be honest with Him: if we desire to be a vessel He uses for revival, we must first ask Him to forgive us for our sins. This is not just an one-time only thing; we need to die daily to our sins. Just because you are saved doesn’t mean you never have to repent again; we all fall short of God’s Glory every day, multiple times a day.

So, if we want to be used for revival, we must expose our sins to Him. Sometimes, we may not even know what our sins were from that day, that’s why I always pray this, “Lord, I ask You to forgive me for any sins I knowingly or UNKNOWLINGLY committed today. Please forgive me for them all. If there’s something that hurt You, please show me that specific sin. In Your Name amen.” I’ve been praying that since I was young girl. Every night right before I go to sleep, I ask Him to highlight any sins I may not have realized I was doing. And almost every day, He highlights something I did.

By confessing our sins and asking Him to shine His Light on our hidden sins, even those we’ve “hidden” to ourselves, we are allowing Him to purify us as holy vessels for His Glory.

  • We must pray and seek His Presence during the repentance process

In a lot of translations, 2 Chron. 7:14 uses the word Face instead of Presence, but I like the translation I use (Moffatt’s) because of what the original word for face meant there.

The word used for face in this verse is mipt (pronounced paw-neem) and it has many meanings but the ones I liked the most were presence, favor, and beseech. So, what the Lord is saying there is that if we beseech His Presence, He will grant us favor. A lot of Christians use the term favor to represent finances, new jobs, etc., and while that’s all fine and good, however, He wants to grant us favor in His Heart…i.e., having intimacy with Him.

If we seek His Presence and repent for our sins, He will grant us a place in the depths of His Heart. A place very few people encounter, but He wants to encounter us all there. Having intimacy with Jesus is the single greatest way to bring another soul into the kingdom of God.  The world thrives on relationships – with a partner, with family members, with friends, with co-workers, with school mates, etc.

The world’s starved for true relationships. And, if we repent and humble ourselves, He will give us the keys to introduce the world into an intimate walk with Him. All revival flows from intimacy with Jesus.

  • We must turn away from our wickedness and expose it to Him

The Hebrew word for turn away here is aey (pronounced shoob) and means to turn back to God (and away from a lifestyle of sin), retreat, or to weep. It’s interesting to note that aey means to weep; the Lord wants us to weep for the sins of the church (this is where intercessory and corporate repentance comes in).

We need to expose our sins, the sins of our church/ministry/the bride of Christ, and the sins of the world before Him, weeping and asking Him to give us the grace to walk away from our sins. We need to ask Him to give us the ability to be pure, unadulterated vessels of His Glory.

 

  • Then, He will forgive our sins and heal our land

Only after we start acting upon these five steps will He forgive our sins (corporately and personally) and heal our land. This part of the scripture verse is our favorite because it’s literally talking about revival.

He promises to forgive us – the Hebrew word for forgive is glq (pronounced saw-lakh) and it means to forgive, pardon, or spare – our habitual sin (a lifestyle of sin) and mend, repair, and restore (raphah) our territory.

If you want to be a revivalist, if you want to be a conduit for God’s Fire and Glory, you must first live in repentance. Over the next week, consider this teaching, as well as the daily teachings, and make it your mission to live a lifestyle of repentance before the Lord.

Jesus wants to use us as holy vessels, fully devoted to Him. He wants to use us as conduits for His Glory but we must first be willing to live a lifestyle of repentance, longing for holiness. He cannot remain in an impure vessel or ministry, He is holy and if we want to be used for revival, we must seek after His Holiness and Righteousness. Then, and only then, can we be prepared to be used by Him.

A few minutes ago, I turned on one of Alberto and Kimberly Rivera’s soaking CDs and Jesus’ Love flooded over me.

I had a vision of Jesus holding a bouquet of flowers and He handed them to me and said, “these represent the fragrance of My Love for My people. I will hold My people close to My Heart and they will begin to radiate the depths of My Presence. Take these flowers as a symbolism of My Love.”

He handed me the flowers and I began to weep then, He hugged me and I was in a great ballroom. Jesus showed me the bride of Christ standing in the middle of the room, being swept into His Arms. Then, He started singing to her and the hordes of hell began to scream. Jesus said, “this day I usher forth a decree: My Love shall conquer all evil and I will expose the very depths of evil in the world. It’s time for My bride to arise with fire in her eyes! The fire of My Love!” And the bride caught fire. All the hordes of hell scream and agonizing pain and they lost their grip over the worshippers of darkness. The Light of Jesus broke through the darkness in humanity and a great flood of His Love began. An unquenchable flood of His Presence.

He said, “never again with Lucifer gain control over the multitudes. I shall destroy his hold over mankind. I will expose all workers of darkness in My Light. Be freed, oh worshipers of darkness. It’s My time and I will not allow anybody to stop what I’m about to do. Be freed.”

And He broke their bonds.

It’s time. Revival starts now. Freedom is coming into the souls of man. It’s time for His Love.

 Please share this far and wide with all of your friends: Christian or not.Romans 12:2 says, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Jesus wants Christians to live a lifestyle of godliness and to truly understand godliness, we must first understand that conformity with the world’s standards is unChristlike. 
Donald Trump, the so-called “President” of America, represents everything that Jesus stands against – he represents the flesh: pride, lust, murder, greed, and rage. If we, as believers in Christ, condone the actions of this man and what he stands for, we do not have a clear understanding of true Christianity.
There is a disturbing trend in the body of Christ in the western world – the literal worship of Donald Trump as a “man of God.” Very few Christians have remained on the straight and narrow since June 2015, when Donald first announced his run.
The American church has made Donald Trump an idol – they have exalted him as a “prophet” of God and in some cases, they consider him the savior of America. Sound familiar? 
“How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer,[a] son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations!
For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation. On the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’
Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit. Those who see you will gaze at you, And consider you, saying: ‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms, who made the world as a wilderness and destroyed its cities, who did not open the house of his prisoners?’” Isaiah 14:12-16
Donald Trump is obviously NOT lucifer but he is of an antichrist spirit – he lives a lifestyle of pride, arrogancy, and sensuality. 
Now, for those whom have been following the Lion Triumphs for a while, you will know we address Trump and his cohorts as “luciferians” – they do most of what they do to gain demonic power form lucifer. 
Their proclamations of war, their sexual abuse/harassment of people, their obsession with money, their obsession with guns, etc. are all for their god lucifer – they do all of this to make him “happy” and appease him.
They are practicing luciferians who thrive off of the power trip they get from appeasing lucifer with their laws. They believe that mass slaughter and violence, sexual abuse and immorality, wealth and making the rich richer, etc., gives them a deeper inroads with lucifer. Everything lucifer stands for is what they stand for, they do everything to appease him so they can get wealthier, more sex, and more power.
So, if a Christian is following Trump and calling him a “man of God,” they are actually following lucifer. Trump himself has mocked Jesus and called Him names, said he never needed to repent because he doesn’t believe he sins, etc. – yet Christians and “ministers” are eating his garbage up saying “God ordained him.”
Why are Christians supporting him? As we reported a few months ago, ten televangelists accepted bribes from Trump’s group in 2015/ early 2016 to publicly support Trump. They got paid to support him. They spread the lies he was a “prophet” and God’s man to deceive the body of Christ, so they could get wealthy. This treads very close to blasphemy of Holy Spirit – using His anointing to lie about a prophet word is EXTREMELY dangerous – look at Anasis and Sapphira, they were killed for doing something similar
Two well-known ministers, who publicly supported Trump and got paid to do so, have died in the past few months and God is about to remove His Grace off of the others.
This a stern rebuke to the body of Christ, especially ministers: judgment starts in the House of God and if you continue to lie about Trump and support him, you will be headed to a terrible future. Jesus wills none to perish but He also will not allow His Name and anointing to be muddied because of bribes.
The Lord says to Christians today, “choose whom you will serve. You cannot serve Me and him, you must choose whom to serve.”
I am pleading with the church to stand against Trump’s lies, sexual abuse, greed, and immorality and if you do not, judgment shall begin – beginning with those eight “ministers,” who took bribes from the occult to support Trump. Then, judgment shall occur for the other “ministers” who have supported him publicly and peddled the “man of God” rubbish about him. If that does not stop the regular Christians, then He will usher judgment against the entire western church. Awake oh sleeper, He will NOT be mocked.

For a remnant of My people will be spread out from Jerusalem, a group of survivors from Mount Zion. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will do this. – Isaiah 37:32

This scripture is, of course, talking about the nation of Israel but, as I was praying tonight, Jesus told me to write a blog post about His zeal and to use this verse.

Here’s what I heard Jesus say, “I Am stirring up My remnant to go forth with the blazing fire of My Love. For I Am calling the wounded, broken, and torn into pieces into My Presence like never before. Yes, the most abused survivors shall see My Glory. For I Am preparing an army of lovesick worshippers who have been in the depths of hell – through suffering and pain – yet, still stand for Me. I Am not a man that I would lie. This is My Promise, this is My Decree. I Am calling the most broken of broken into radical intimacy with Me like never before.”

I saw a picture of a ragtag army – worn, torn, abused, sick, tortured… to the world’s eyes, they had no value, but to Jesus: they were His special warriors.

A mighty fire of His Love swirled around them and they were caught ablaze with passion for His Namesake. They ran after Him with all of their heart because He was the only One Whom knew their pain and suffering yet drew closer to them DESPITE their pain and suffering.

Jesus wants to restore His zeal within you and He wants to restore it into the hearts of the broken, the sick, the traumatized, the abused, the ones whom are split, those whom have lost everything, those the world mocks and bullies: He is coming to baptize them in His Fire – the Fire of His Love and the zeal for His Presence.
Don’t give up, beloveds. He is here and the more broken you are, the more radical His Love can flow through you.

What is passion?
A strong and extravagant fondness or desire to another.
I hear many people speaking about the finished works of the cross.
While this teaching is partially true it is not completely true.
This teaching preaches it was all done at the cross we have nothing to do. Just drink and be merry.
Where does that leave passion?
I ask you my friends – do you believe Jesus was joyous on His death day? In the garden of Gethsemane He asked the Father to take the cup of agony away from Him.
You see, passion is experiencing the joys and pains of Who you are passionate about.
Let us look at it like this: when your spouse is hurting do you rejoice? No, you should sorrow and weep with them until they are all better.
Jesus said no greater love has a man then this: that he would lay down his life for his friend. Jesus considers us friends, He laid His life down for us. That was agony – the pain, the sorrow, the distress He took upon Himself came at a great price. His own friends would not stay up with Him on His last night to pray.
Jesus did not come to bring peace. By this I mean, following Christ is taking up our cross. I go through massive amounts of warfare everyday, but that is the passion He has given me for Him that keeps me going. That is an example of passion. I am not near as passionate as I wish to be, but His passion rages in my spirit.
Jesus come to divide the wheat from the tares and even families would be split apart. This is not a joyous thing. Yes, we are to count it all gladness when somebody comes against us but there is nothing fun about suffering.
Did you know Jesus still suffers? He still hurts. You can disbelieve me all you want, but I have felt His heart in deep intercession.
He is broken for a bride that continually rejects Him. He is broken for a world that is hell-bound and with no hope for a future. He was wounded for our transgression yet He still feels the affects of those transgression.
Living in the passion of Christ is difficult sometimes. Because in that intimate state the holiness of the Lord blinds you. Isaiah said, “woe is me for I am a man of unclean lips, I am undone.” That is what the passion of the Lord did to Isaiah. He was not in joyous bliss yet crying out with Truth of whom he was – unholy.
You see true intimacy with Jesus draws forth your sinful nature and draws you into genuine repentance. Repentance is not always fun however, it is needed. But, the passion of Christ goes deeper.
Did you know almost everyone of Jesus’ followers in the Word were martyred? They did not die in a state of exaltation, they died humiliated.
His passion is a fiery passion – He laughs when we laugh, He cries when we cry, He is our bridegroom, and that is what a good Husband does.
What about us? Will we laugh with Him? Sure, that’s fun. But what about crying with Him in that place in His heart where He hurts? The chamber of weeping? Will we experience the fullness of His passion? Or just a part we enjoy?
Everybody loves a laugh, but only true friends stand in the gap with their friends when they hurt – are you willing to partake of every aspect of Whom He is?

Arise o warrior bride – arise the time is now to take your sword and arise. No more sleeping. Be filled with fire. Be filled with love. You are created to war – for the King and His Kingdom. You were formed to be a bride so arise!
Now is the time, no more starring at the sword. It will overwhelm you no more. Grab a hold of your destiny – do not fear the fire that burns in your eyes, it is simply a reflection of His eyes.
Do not allow the world to quench the flame within – do not allow tomorrow to begin before you enter in!
Today is the hour today is the day of your destiny.
Put on the armor of your King.
War, war, the Kingdom of God suffers war , war and He has called you to TAKE THE LAND!
You are to take the land. No more hiding!
It is time to take the LAND – take it back, take it back, give it back to Him!
This is the hour this is the time – do not fear.
Your destiny is to be a warrior bride.
Filled with fire, filled with love.
The enemy sees the Fire in you, he attacks you thru the night. Do not lose hope. Do not give him ground! Fight, fight, fight my warrior friend!
The Lord says – today is your hour of victory! Keep your eyes on Him, keep your gaze on Him.
The Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence – but the violent take it by force!
At the end of the day, the end of the hour, your Redemption draws near – your Love comes to rescue you from the glare of the enemy.
But, Lord, I don’t think I saw a change? What occurred? Why did I war so deeply?
Look behind you, my friend, look behind you, do you see that crowd of people? They were chained but you warred for them – you fought for them in the spirit and you see, you see, the enemy has no room in their lives anymore!
Jesus, your King, your Bridegroom has freed them thru the warring, the fighting, the crying you did on their behalf! Keep warring – keep warring o warrior bride!
Up comes the sun – in the night time – the night time is over, your King has come to comfort you – He encourages you with His love. He ravishes you with His love. Let Him love you.
Keep being loved by Him and fight
Combining – love and violence, love for the King, love for the people, violence against the darkness. Fight. War. Stand in the gap, stand in the gap against the enemy’s camp, stand in the gap for the lost, stand in the gap for your sister and brother – fight, in His arms, fight, in intimacy, fight out of His heart, fight for the generation that slips away.
Let the fire be released within, let the love come rushing, rushing in! Hear the calling of the King, hear the heartbeat of Him and fight from that place! O warrior bride!

I write to you today about true ministry.
What is true church? True ministry?
True ministry is this – to look after orphans and widows in their distress and keep oneself from being polluted by the world (James 1:27)
Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out devils, freely you have received, freely you give. (Matthew 10:8)
Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. (Mark 16:15)
In that day, says the Lord, you will no longer call Me Master but I shall be your Husband. (Hosea 2:16)
I believe these four verses sum up our entire call for ministry. Hosea 2:16 describes intimacy with the Lord, which will cause you to burn for Him and release the good news, then your heart will burn for more to heal, raise, cleanse, and cast then finally, your heart will be for holiness and to help those who hurt.
However – years upon years of humanism has gotten into the church. The church has been seeped into worshipping deities of self, family, money, and celebrity status. The church has grown “ego-centric” – which is basically a nice way to put self centered.
I have seen too many ministries fall into self glory, as people exalt them above the Lord. My friends, we are just His mouthpiece we are not to be exalted He is – it is okay to like a certain ministry over another, I have my favorites however, they never should become gods to you – our only God is Yahweh and He is a jealous lover – He will not share His glory with another.
Another tripping point upon the church these days has been finances. We need finances to do ministry – that is true, I will not reject that, but, finances come when people are listening to the voice of Daddy. There is no reason to charge for meetings or say sow this amount of money into my ministry and the Lord will double your income. That is manipulation.
The Lord will not be mocked! He trusts His people with His presence – for those four purposes mentioned above – intimacy, winning the lost, healing the sick, raising the dead, casting out devils, cleansing the lepers, and looking after orphans and widows and desiring holiness as He holy.
The Lord is looking for a people who will stand up and BE the genuine church – no more games, no more manipulation, no more whose who, but Who He is shall be exalted.
Warning unto the body – mock the Lord and you shall enter into Ichabod – the glory of the Lord has departed… He will NOT share His glory with another.
Raise up oh church and exalt your King – stay in intimacy, reach the lost, fulfill the commission and love on those who have no love – otherwise, you are like the world and the Lord will spit you out of His mouth.
So, in conclusion, true ministry, true church is listening to His heart and following His lead – and as Moses said , “ If Your Presence does not go with me, do not send me.” You see my friends – His Presence is where all genuine ministry comes from – Him!
