Where Did You Stop?

Where did you stop?

I can hear you asking me, where did I stop what? Where did you stop loving? Where did you stop forgiving? Where did you stop trusting? Where did you stop believing? Where did you stop learning? Where did you stop giving? Where did you stop  _____________? Rick Joyner said in February 2017 that the Lord spoke to him a 4 phrase prophetic word, “To infinity and beyond!” I did not know until today that God spoke that to Rick, but about 3 weeks ago, God spoke to me and said, “where did you stop?” I believe these two, four phrase prophetic words are connected, for you cannot go to infinity and beyond if you stop. So, where did you stop?

The reason I believe this question is so important is because the Lord is inviting us yet again to “Come up here!” Revelation 4:1 says, “After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” Couple this with the call out of Jeremiah 33:2-3 that says, ““This is what the Lord says, he who made the earth, the Lord who formed it and established it—the Lord is his name: ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’” One observation I have made in the body of Christ is that when we get a revelation, we tend to camp on that revelation as though it is a final destination. Now, I realize that many people like to build settlements so they can feel secure, but the God we serve is continually on the move.

What I have noticed is that many have stopped at their last book, their last marriage, their last success, their last theology, but God is inviting us to keep going, to keep pressing, to keep moving. We are not to leave those things behind in the sense of we forget what we learned, but Hebrews 6:1 encourages us to press on, keep going, don’t stop. God invited Moses to build a tabernacle, it was a mobile tent, so they could keep moving; He made an ark of the covenant, that was to carried on the shoulders of the Levites, so it could be on the move; He called Abraham to keep moving until he found the city, who’s builder and maker is God; Jesus Himself, never built a settlement, but rather walked with His disciples, they were on the move.

I don’t believe God is anti-buildings, but I believe that many of us have stopped, settled, set up camp with no intention of moving on from where we are. Faith is movement! Like a river, we need to keep moving in our faith, in our love, in our pursuit of the Kingdom, we have done ourselves and others a disservice when God moves but we remain.

So, where did you stop? I can feel the resistance to this question, because if you answer it honestly, you will have to admit you stopped. But, I believe God is releasing a fresh wave of grace (empowerment) to get moving again. He is inviting us to believe again, trust again, love again, give again, because He is on the move. Whenever the cloud moved, the Israelites moved, I’m concerned the cloud has moved but many in the body of Christ have not. We are being invited to learn again, listen again, obey again, because He is speaking again!

If you stopped, you can start again, but you realize you stopped. Others see where you stopped, but many times you can’t see it, but today is the day of salvation, so pick up your mat and walk, for God is on the move and He wants you to move with Him.


Capitulate! 5.6.17
Yesterday morning as I was waking up, I heard in my spirit the word, capitulate. My first thought was did I hear clearly, then again I heard the word capitulate. So, now in my mind I am thinking, capitulate? I went on with my prayer time and bible study, not really paying attention to the word. One reason was, I had no idea what it meant and two, it was just one word, that had no context or meaning to me, so I tried to shake it off. But as I am reading my bible, I hear it again, capitulate. So, between Psalm 135 and 136, I stop reading and look up the word capitulate.
Capitulate (wikitionary.com): to surrender; to end all resistance; to give up; to go along with or comply; to wave the white flag in surrender
Now I have a definition and I ask the Lord, are you telling me to capitulate on something, I thought I was up to date on obedience, He said, no not you, the nations. Then I saw like a sign in heaven and on it said, CAPITULATE! I knew heaven was commanding, decreeing the earth to capitulate. I sent the word to a couple of friends and they responded with wow, amazing, yes! One friend even screen shot the word and its definition on her phone, for she did not know what it meant either and said yes, this is what heaven is saying.
Capitulate! So, I began to decree to the earth, capitulate, I began with America, then went to other nations of the world in my prayers and said, capitulate. There may be more to this word, that others can say in order to add pieces to this puzzle God is speaking to the nations, but this piece felt significant enough for me to share with you all, so you can decree as I am, in agreement with heaven, earth is it time to capitulate.
Finally, I woke up this morning, still thinking about this word, and I hear the words, “until you know that heaven rules!” I knew immediately this was what Daniel told Nebuchadnezzar, so I find the verse in its context and it is part of the interpretation of the kings dream about the tree that was cut down in Daniel 4. Then here is the verse I heard, Daniel 4:26 “The part about the tree stump and roots being left means that your kingdom will still be there for you after you learn that it is heaven that rules!”
I believe this word, capitulate and this verse in Daniel 4:26 is on a macro level for world leaders that are resisting what God is doing in the earth realm, if they refuse to capitulate I think they will be cut down, until they learn that heaven rules. On a micro level, I believe it is about the resistance movement in America. The Lord is saying, capitulate, stop resisting what I am doing, stop resisting authority, wave the white flag, but if you don’t, I will have to chop you down until you learn that heaven rules. I don’t believe any is going to die, I believe some voices are going to be silenced until they learn that heaven rules.
God has decided that heaven is going to rule on earth while we are alive, it is a decision He made and He is not going to change His mind. We will see a move of God like never before in our generation, heaven has declared it. But, there is a call to the earth to capitulate, so this move of God will be a blessing to all not a burden to some. God does not want us resisting Him any longer, He has a surprise party planned that will release righteousness, peace and joy, but you must capitulate or be cut down, until you acknowledge that heaven rules. And with what is coming, it will not be hard to know that heaven rules!

Massive Shift

The era of big ministries is coming to an end and the era of big people is arising!

Genesis 11:1-4 says, “Now the whole world had one language and a common speech.  As people moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

The era of big ministries began as a mustard seed of faith, trust, truth, and authentic hunger for God, His word and His people. However, as the building got bigger, the ministry did not keep going back to the foundation before it built another layer, so now the ministry is so far from the truth, that they do not even know truth when they hear it or the building is big but the presence of God is minimal to non-existent. Before the temple was destroyed in AD 70, it was already corrupt and left desolate (Matthew 23:38 and Matthew 26:64). They did not destroy a living entity, they destroyed an already desolate artifact, that had the appearance of godliness, but denied its power (2 Timothy 3:5). And Jesus prophesied this would happen in the gospel of Matthew, saying, not one stone would be left on another (Matthew 24:2).

We are living in the end of an era just like they were in the gospels. Jesus was the beginning of a new era, He said, repent, for the kingdom of heaven is here (Matthew 3:2). Prophets in our day and age have been saying this for years, repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. They have been trying to tell us a new era is here, the kingdom has come, the church age is over, but we can’t comprehend what they are saying. So, we continue to try and be the next big name with the next big building, so people ooh and ahh over us; so people buy our books; want to have us come and speak in their church. I’m telling you what they have been telling you, the era of big ministries is coming to an end, that is why you are being halted, stopped, you feel stuck, because those days are over.

Here’s where we are, God is building big people. They are huge on the inside, they don’t have a big building, they don’t have a huge following on Twitter, Periscope or Instagram, but they are huge on the inside. You see the saying is still true today, “Man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart” (I Samuel 16:7). Man will always look to see how big your church is, how many books you’ve written or how many souls you’ve saved, but God, is searching to and fro for a heart that is completely His (2 Chronicles 16:9). Many are discouraged because they are not getting the big break, the big book deal, the big phone call and many are promising you still, this is going to happen, but the truth is, God has been and continues to, look for those who are big on the inside, not big on the outside.

God is looking for big people. The kingdom is a government of big people, not big ministries. The kingdom of God is filled with big people, when they speak the hallways of heaven echo their words, when they pray sickness is healed, relationships are restored, finances recovered and the presence of God comes in power. These people are unassuming, not self-promoting, they are not trying to make a name for themselves, for they are secure in their identity as son or daughter or God. They dwell in the shelter of the Highest, they don’t live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds from the mouth of God, they know their God and they will do great exploits. These big people live in condo’s, companies, churches, and communities as everyday people, because outwardly they are not flashy, showy or seeking attention, but oh if you get a chance to hear them speak, if you spend any time with them, you will know they are big on the inside and these are the ones that are arising. These are the diamonds in the dirt that many have walked over, but who God was forging in the secret place when no one was looking.

The era of big ministries is over, the era of big people is arising. If you’re looking to be a big ministry, you are going to be looking for an old wineskin, but if you are willing to be a big person, there is no telling what He will do with you, as a vessel of honor fit for the Master’s use!
