I'm writing this post out of obedience. The message was spoken to me a few weeks ago, but I only just this week said I'd deliver it the right way. And let me tell you ... as soon as I said yes to God He dropped a blessing I'd been wanting right in my lap.
About three weeks ago I was asleep and dreaming and right in the middle of the dream, The Lord shows up and said, "I have a message for the churches." Dr. Charles F. Stanley, who is my Bible mentor always says, "Obey God and leave all the consequences to Him." So, I'm just gonna deliver it, and leave the rest up to Him.
It's time for churches to be what they're supposed to be. Hospitals. Medical wards. They're supposed to bring them [the lost, sick, hurting, dying, crying] in, get them fixed and send them out into the world to continue the cycle. To advance The Kingdom. This doesn't happen where I AM not the head, Yeshua's barely there and Holy Spirit isn't welcome. I will tear those places down and put others in place who minister to Me.
Now, that's not a popular message. Most people who run churches believe they're serving God and that He's the Head. And most of those people probably started out wanting to be completely submitted to God, but then the taste of leadership exceeded their desire for Him. Listen, I know very personally, that when things are growing and going good it's easy to put less emphasis on prayer and more on production and keeping things running.
I also know very personally, that I can't get far away from God without everything in my life falling apart. This is only true for me because I'm 100% dependent upon Him. This isn't true for most churches. Most of the time churches focus on number of members and then income to determine if they're pleasing God. For me, I know I'm pleasing God when I complete each assignment He gives me. Each assignment moves me further along in anointing, authority and prosperity. Such as this assignment - I obeyed and He rewarded me as soon as I said yes. Get that; I hadn't even performed the task, yet, only agreed to it, and He poured out what I needed for breakthrough. That's the God we serve! That needs to be taught in the churches.
He gave me this message, but I didn't agree to release it properly at first; I sat on it. Then during the academy class Tuesday evening, He came back with another message of warning. He said to remember in December that He's The Everlasting God - El Olam - who never changes, and never leaves or forsakes. So that got me wondering, what in the world is gonna come upon the earth in December that He wants me to remember He'll be there and is faithful? I got on this assignment because if something's coming, I can't afford to be in disobedience. I won't overcome with that hanging over me.
Earlier this year while praying I heard, "September," and September has been a month of testing and trial. He warned me six months in advance (Amos 3:7). So now he warned me three months in advance that December will be a time to keep my focus on Him and who He is. You can pray and ask Him if any part of that word applies to your life. He'll tell ya' (Jeremiah 33:3).
That reminds me, my apostle sent out a word earlier this week that warned us to watch the stock market today, Friday, September 30, 2016.
Speaking of my apostle, when I got this message from The Lord I emailed and asked what to do with it because I don't have an audience that responds to that type of message. This was his reply:
Z, God will be in the future bringing into the forefront "unknown" servants of His. By "unknown" I mean those who are NOT in the limelight or well-known names.
So, here's what you are to do. Using the outreach God has given you (social media, books, speaking engagements, email, etc.) share the message(s) the LORD has revealed to you. The Holy Spirit knows HOW to distribute AND multiply them.
Just do what you feel He wants you to do.
One of my sons-in-law told me an interesting story. He was at a convention of pastors and ministers. One of them stood up and told how 25 years before a man [he named me] laid hands on him and prophesied, "Nations, nations, nations" and told him he would be preaching to [I think tens of] thousands of people. He wondered, "How can this be?" as he was only shepherding a small flock. After that, several others I had prophesied to stood up with the same testimony.
Just OBEY the LORD, Zari, and be His friend. He will keep using you and bring increase to YOU and His Kingdom. As you draw closer to Him He will reveal more and more.
Obedience brings rewards. I'm a witness. I pray The Lord's grace fall upon you today for increase, multiplication and deliverance.
P.S. I'm extending an invitation for someone who'd like to pray with me November 1 to December 31, 2016 for breakthrough, authority, power and miracles. I pray for 61 days at the end of each year and always experience amazing deliverance, signs and wonders during that time, and I'd like to teach others how to pray effectively. If you're interested and can commit to pray for 61 days straight - this is no small feat - you may contact me via email.
This morning I dreamed that three evangelists came to my door and asked me if I needed to learn about godly prosperity. It was two men and a woman. They represent The Godhead - Yahweh, Yeshua and Holy Spirit. Wisdom in the book of Proverbs is a feminine word and we know that Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Wisdom.
I told them I knew about godly prosperity and, as a matter of fact, my child and I often went into our heavenly storehouses to make withdrawals. Up to this point they were only small withdrawals here and there ... but that was (is) gonna change.
Let me tell you why I love this dream. Before I went to bed I was thinking about ALL THE MONEY I need, which seems like a lot, not to mention all the money I want to do special projects with. When you do that, you can get discouraged a little bit, which is what I did, and as result I asked for less than what I really want. Well, that's not The God I serve. He reminded me that I can have all the godly prosperity I need AND want, and I have the strategies to get it.
Holy Spirit taught me that back in 2011 - He taught me that any promise of God I don't have possession of is because I'm missing a piece of wisdom that gets me what I want. In Proverbs we learn that Wisdom has long life in her right hand and riches and honor in her left. On the positive side, the left hand represents submission to God and authority.
Therefore, if we submit to The Word of God (God is His Word, Yeshua, The Word made flesh) which is the Wisdom of God (Holy Spirit as our Divine Teacher and Revealer) we'll have access to riches and honor if we want them. Everyone doesn't want godly prosperity. Some only want enough for their household (until something happens they can't afford, that is).
I recently finished teaching two My Money Grows on Trees Financial Deliverance courses and when the testimonies of debt payoffs, etc. began coming in, the enemy tried to attack my finances. I allowed my income to dip two days before I realized what was going on, and then I went into prayer. The Spirit of Wisdom gave me a strategy, I did it and my income turned around that very day and has been increasing nicely since then. And the testimonies are still coming in.
I shared this testimony last week and someone sowed a seed for financial increase and I gave them the strategy I used. I'm expecting a testimony to come from them soon.
The Written Word tells us throughout to ask for what we need and want (Jeremiah 33, Matthew 7). Believe God. He can't lie. And if you need Wisdom for how to attain godly prosperity, I have two teachings (pictured above) that will get you started.
The Blessing of The Lord makes rich and He adds no sorrow to it!
On 8.27.2016 Holy Spirit began speaking to me about the new Biblical year Ayin Zayin 5777. The scripture correlating to this new year, which begins October 2016, is Deuteronomy 32:22.
"For a fire is kindled in My anger, and burns to the lowest part of Sheol, and consumes the earth with its yield, and sets on fire the foundations of mountains." ~ NASB
When He gave this to me, I was just reading and not really prepared to take notes or receive revelation so I asked Him to stop. I admittedly was also a little startled because He'd never spoken revelation of that type to me before. In years past, I've waited to hear from established prophets what each new year was about. This year I was blessed to have been chosen to receive in advance. Pretty cool.
So, I asked real quickly what that meant, and He said in this new year He'll make a distinction between those who are with Him and those who are not. Now I've only shared this with my inner circle before today because it seemed a little harsh, and I'm always getting those kinda words. For example, last week in dreams The Lord spoke up and said, "I have messages for the churches," and then He started saying things like:
So, today, September 12, 2016, I went to check my church's website and the advertisement for HOTY 5777 reads at the bottom, "The Sword of The Lord Moving Across the Earth." I was very excited to see that confirmation that what I heard was accurate. Our apostle even called this upcoming year, "The Year of The Lord's Killing Sword."
The number 7 in Hebrew is a picture of a vav with a crown on top and it speaks of bringing The Word with power and authority as a king-priest. Back in January 2013 when I'd just regained custody of Zayne and we were starting to homeschool, we prayed for several days and asked God to show us through visions what His destiny was. Z was told to study his name. So when we studied it out God began to unfold His will for my son's life and future.
He's a prophet called to bring The Word of God with authority and power and because we know what God's desire is for him, that set the framework for his education. He's being trained as a prophet of God first and in traditional, mainstream education second. We both received visions of him praying over and speaking in front of groups, microphone in hand, with great wisdom.
This is Z's year and I'm excited about all of the new things God will break open for him as the days progress.
I pray you know what God has ordained for you since before time began. And if you're a parent, I pray you consult God for your children's destinies and receive (believe and agree with) them, as well. Take care.
In the BBC show Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, demonic instruction is blatant. It's typical worldly behavior, though - trusting in the demonic realm to accomplish what God desires for His prophets to do which is go into battle with kings.
It's our responsibility as Bible-living believers to make God's supernatural power attractive and available to others. That's exactly what Yeshua did when He served on earth.
This is a very rough explanation of the revelation I received about our authority when taking God's Words back to Him. If you can just listen to it a couple (several) times and keep in mind to "put a demand on His Word in His Presence" with Holy Spirit's help you'll get it. Bless you!
