Wardrobe Change

It’s now time for a wardrobe change. Most women love a new outfit, most men love a new vehicle. Same same but different is what they say in Bangkok, Thailand. The Lord is announcing not His second coming but the now time for a new wardrobe change. It’s an upgrade but you must wear it. He’s giving us light suits so when the day breaks we are dressed for the day that is breaking in literally at the speed of light. Cast off all deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light He is presenting to you. I hear the song You’re an army dressed for battle…take the land! (Rick Pino). It’s now time to put on the armor of light.

Romans 13:12 “The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.”

Purim 2021

Today is Purim, the day we remember the deliverance of the Jews from their enemy who at that time’s name was Haaman. This story of intrigue, strategy, divine reversals and deliverance can be found in the book of Esther. It is not a major holiday on the Hebrew calendar, like one of the feasts such as Passover, Pentecost or Tabernacles, but it is a significant holiday for it is a reminder of God as a deliverer of nations.

As our nation is still awaiting deliverance from many injustices that have been levied against it in the recent past and present reality, we as the church are called to be like Esther. She was not emotional she was strategic; she was not impatient she was stealthy; she was not aggressive she was wise. There are many lessons the church can learn from Esther as it came to delivering a nation from an evil ruler within.

The story of Purim is powerful in many ways, and if you read it as though you don’t know the outcome, you can really enter into the story line and it could be a Hollywood blockbuster if done in 007 fashion. But like any good action movie, it ends with the enemy being defeated and the people experiencing victory. The victory was so great the people rejoiced loudly and longly.

On this Purim 2021, remember the God who delivered the Jews from that wicked Haaman, is the same God who will deliver my nation, your nation from that wicked ______________. Today, the Lord had me declare global jubilee for the nations and invited me to open the ancient gates of the earth so the King of Glory can come in (Psalm 24). I am not going to let this day in history just be a memory, I am asking for it to be another reality for the nations of the earth.

A Strange Voice

A Strange Voice

John 10:5 “A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.”  

A stranger’s voice I will not follow was my decree this morning as the enemy spoke to me in a dream yesterday, it was a pleasant dream, but it was a dream in which the voice of a stranger was speaking and it took me all day to realize it. The voice of a stranger is not the voice of God henceforth, why Jesus said, about His sheep, a stranger’s voice they will not follow. It does not say we will not hear a stranger’s voice; it says we will not follow it.  

I heard the voice of a stranger in this dream, but did not realize it was a stranger’s voice until the day went on and that voice continued to seek to lead me down a path that would have taken me off of the path the Lord is leading me on. How do I know it was a stranger’s voice, because it eroded my peace, created in me negative emotions and assaulted the character and nature of God to me. It was seeking to get me to do in the flesh what God has said He will do by His spirit. A stranger’s voice I will not follow.  

The enemy wants to get us to follow a stranger’s voice, for a stranger’s voice will take us away from the voice of the good Shepherd, Jesus the Christ and His plan for our lives. The stranger’s voice will seek to inject its poison into our relationship with God and with others. The stranger’s voice wants to erode our fellowship with God and other people. A stranger’s voice I will not follow. We are all subject to the voice of a stranger, it comes subtly, stealthily and substantially. It sounds like a logical idea, in many ways it makes sense, but it is the voice of a stranger and we must learn to discern this voice and not follow it, for it will lead us to a place we never wanted to go.  

I hope my experience with the voice of the stranger yesterday, unlocks for you some understanding as to what may be happening to you and gives you tools on how to recognize and resist the voice of the stranger. A stranger’s voice we will not follow, for our God is faithful, our God is trustworthy and our God is the only voice we are going to follow!  

Building An Unshakable Kingdom

Have you ever thought about where the kingdom that can’t be shaken is going to manifest? Have you ever wondered what it will look like? Do you ever dream about how life would be in a place that is unmovable, unshakable, unstoppable? Or is it just me?

The Old Testament writers, prophets and people, as well as those in the gospels we’re looking for and talking about a physical structure that would be their safe place, the unshakable place. However, even though they were awaiting a Messiah, they were not looking for a man to be the unshakable thing they were pursuing, building, planning for.

Jesus came as the unshakable kingdom, the city Abraham left everything to find, and the One who lives in you and lives in me. What we are looking for outside of us, God is building inside of us. Did you know there are people on earth right now who have been built inside strong by the Word of God? They aren’t leading in a building they are in your community, family, city. While people still try to build external things and tell people come in here you’ll be safe, God has been building people who are manifesting an unshakable kingdom and He wants to build you into that unshakable kingdom too.

Hebrews 11:10 “He (Abraham) was looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.”

Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden!”

Resisting Rabshakeh

The voice of Rabshakeh mocks the people of God telling them it’s foolish to put their trust in God, to obey God to believe God can deliver them from the hand of an enemy king. If you’ve ever heard the voice of God Invite you to follow Him, obey Him, trust Him by stepping out in faith, you have also had an encounter with the voice of Rabshakeh.

When God speaks what He says comes to pass, but to get to the reality of the word God spoke, to see it’s manifestation we have to resist the voice of Rabshakeh. It’s only a voice, it’s only words, all words remain only words until we add our faith to the words. Words materialize when faith is attached to them. Remember faith is the substance (Hebrews 11). If you don’t attach your faith, belief, trust to words they will not materialize, for faith adds substance. Therefore every word that materializes is because someone added their faith to it.

We can resist the voice of Rabshakeh by not believing what that spirit says. In Isaiah 36, the voice of Rabshakeh mocked the watchmen on the wall of Judah, telling them they were being deceived, they were never going to be defeated, they were being misled, and that Yahweh would not deliver them from his hand. How did they resist the voice, they remained silent, they didn’t believe a word the voice of Rabshakeh said and we can do the same. Resist the voice of Rabshakeh and heed the voice of God.

Pursue That Which Lasts

King Solomon had wealth, he had gold and silver, he had more than anyone before him up to that time and the Bible says no one would exceed him in wealth ever. The very thing people pursue, kill for, take people to court over, lie for, cheat for, and lose their respect for, King Solomon had. Therefore, hearing his words, understanding his words and absorbing his words will benefit us immeasurably. But we will have to resist and repent of our willingness to sacrifice the things money can’t buy, to obtain money.

People have destroyed relationships over money, destroyed churches over money, destroyed marriages over money. The same snake called mammon is not doing anything new, he is still stealing, killing and destroying people all for money. But King Solomon steps into our life on this 22nd day of February 2021 and says in Proverbs 22:1-2 “A good name is to be more desired than great wealth, Favor is better than silver and gold. The rich and the poor have a common bond, The LORD is the maker of them all.”

May I encourage you today, the Lord will never give you too much or too little, He knows the measure that is right for you at any given time. Therefore, choose to ask for favor and a good name, for those things last. Wealth has wings it flies into your life and flies out, but a good name and God’s favor stays with you on earth and into heaven forever. May we desire what lasts forever not what sprouts wings and flies away. For we will never lack anything physically or financially, but we may be lacking favor and a good name and this loss is more costly than most recognize.

Can You Hear the Sound?

Sounds of salvation are heard in the wells of revival; sounds of revival are heard in the cries of a people; sounds of a people are heard in the groaning of the earth; sounds of the earth’s groaning reveal the cadence of the King in our land. Being able to hear the sounds is vital for hope to be a beacon of light in the darkness, of joy in the sorrow and of peace in the midst of war. The sound of God is evident if you know what to listen for. Can you hear the sound of God in our land?  

In Isaiah the Lord spoke to the prophet with an indictment against the people, saying, “They have eyes but cannot see, ears but cannot hear, and hearts but cannot understand, or they would turn and I would heal them” (Isaiah 6). God has given us every resource we need to return to Him no matter how far we have turned away. But it takes our blind eyes to be opened, our deaf ears to hear and our hard hearts to be softened. Is it any wonder, these are the miracles Jesus performed when He was on earth? Is it any wonder this was His mission statement as noted in Luke 4, that He would preach, proclaim, set free and release recovery of sight? Jesus was a restorer of sight and sound to His people.  

As I was in prayer this morning with Psalm 85 the Lord opened up a sight and sound experience for me in the spirit, whether it is near or far from now, I am not sure, but it is coming, this I know. What I saw was horses with riders on them and the riders were carrying a banner as they rode across the land. They reminded me of circuit riders of old. They were crisscrossing the land with this banner and the sound of the horses’ hooves was heard for miles. There were thousands of these horses and riders, carrying the banner that was the gospel of the kingdom.  

Psalm 85 says, “O Lord, You showed favor to your land; you restored the captivity; you forgave the iniquity; You covered their sin. Selah.” The psalmist goes on to say, “Restore us, O God of our salvation; will You not Yourself revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You? Show us Your lovingkindness, O Lord, and grant us Your salvation.” The richness of this Psalm is evident in the language used, and when I read these words, the vision opened up in living color. “Indeed, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its produce. Righteousness will go before Him and will make His footsteps into a way!” 

Righteousness was the word on the banners the riders were carrying, and the banners were leading the way across the land. As righteousness ran across the land the footsteps of God could be heard in the land. Footsteps in the Hebrew means a beat; a stroke; ranks; a cadence; the sound of God’s footsteps across the land are likened to the sound of horse’s hooves as they run across the land and it sounds like a cadence. The cadence then opened up a way in Hebrew a road, a journey, a direction, a manner, a habit, a course of life.  

As I put this sight and sound experience together, the Lord revealed to me that the footsteps of God are a cadence that follow the rhythm of righteousness and created a way in which to walk. The horses were creating the cadence as the riders carried the banner of righteousness across the land and the Lord was creating ways for the nation to walk in. The ambassadors of truth, carrying the banner of righteousness are going to be like circuit riders who ride across this land with the sights and sounds of God and will establish a way that people will walk in. This way will be definitive, it will be righteousness and it will be favor, restoration, and lovingkindness.  

Can you hear the sound of the footsteps of God creating a cadence of righteousness in our land that reveals the way we are going to go as a nation? It’s the sound of salvation and it’s heard in the hooves of the horses carrying the circuit riders who are holding the banner of righteousness all over our land. I can see them riding across the land, I can hear the sound of the horses’ hooves and I know righteousness is exalting our nation, just watch you will see it, you will hear it.  

Everyone Pursues Something

Everyone has the ability to pursue. Some people pursue money, others pursue relationships, still some pursue the enemy, but most people don’t use their pursuer to pursue God. For most God is an accessory not a priority.

Have you ever wondered why this is?

Only the individual can answer this for themselves but based on observations of what people pursue it’s possible it’s because God is not instant pleasure, instant results or instant satisfaction. People who have money, ministry, and marriage are still not satisfied because only God can fulfill your inner longing.

We all have the ability, the desire, the want to to pursue, but if its not God your pursuit will not yield lasting fruit. Adjust your pursuer from things that only bring temporary satisfaction to the Lord who is eternal satisfaction and He will give you the temporal things to enjoy.

1 Timothy 6:17 “Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.”


“They” want you ignorant
“They” want you blind
“They” want you naive
For then “they” can control you.

The Lord wants you to see clearly
The Lord wants you to hear soundly
The Lord wants you to understand frequently
For He said the knowledge of the glory of God will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14)

In all your pursuing pursue God
In all your seeking seek God
In all your desires desire God
The Lord is all knowing, all seeing, all hearing there is nothing He does not see, hear, know! And He wants you to know what He knows, see what He sees and hear what He hears for in Him you will find rest for your soul.

We Are Still In War

As in the days of Noah is a phrase people use to describe the days we live in and there is truth to this. What exactly were the days of Noah? Genesis 6-8 describe the days of Noah, it is not just one thing that was happening in those days, it was many things. If we are living in the days of Noah as some have said, what part are they referencing? I don’t know and I don’t have access to them to ask them to crystallize their generalized statement.

One thing I do know is like in the days of Noah most are oblivious to the reality of the spiritual war we are in as a nation right now. The battle didn’t end on November 2; January 6; or January 20; it is still going on right now but many believers have left the battle field while others never joined in at all. This is not a war of one color vs. another politically or ethnically; this not a gender war; this is a spiritual war between righteousness and wickedness. Until we identify what the war is, we won’t know how to fight, effectively.

The enemy is not ours personally even though it affects us personally, this is the same ancient enemy Israel dealt with in scripture. The enemy is God’s enemy, always has been always will be and the battle is over what God/god is going to rule the nation. As believers we have been given authority to engage in this spiritual war, but just like in the days of Noah there was a spiritual war being fought and most were oblivious to it. I’m blowing the shofar as a call to war for those who can hear, God/Yahweh is going to have righteousness exalt the nation for the nations are the inheritance given to Yeshua (Psalm 2), but we must raise our voice in prayer, obey the word of God in practice and pull down these invisible strongholds that are seeking to establish wickedness in our nation. We are in a war.

Psalm 83:1-4 “O God, do not remain quiet; Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still. For behold, Your enemies make an uproar, And those who hate You have exalted themselves. They make shrewd plans against Your people, And conspire together against Your treasured ones. They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation.”
