How Your Dressed Matters

Religion allows the works of the flesh in church and does not challenge them rather tolerates them. This is why religion and politics are of the same spirit because they accept the works of the flesh as normal. However, the kingdom of God, which is the government of God, does not allow the works of the flesh. If we are to enter/inherit the kingdom of God we must put off the works of the flesh and put on faith, obedience and the fruit of the spirit. Without being dressed right you won’t enter the kingdom of God here on earth or in heaven.

Paul said the works of the flesh are obvious, adultry, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outburst of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like (Galatians 5:19-21). If you are dressed in any of these things you will not enter nor inherit the kingdom of God, the government of God. You may go to a church, you may be involved in religious activities, but you will not enter the kingdom of God, until you put off those garments and get dressed in the correct clothing. No exceptions.

Bible Ask says, “In the ancient oriental Marriage feasts, the special wedding garments were provided by the king himself. A feast filled with properly dressed guests would be an honor to the king and to the Marriage. So, a person who was not dressed properly would bring dishonor upon the host and ruin the happy occasion. The wedding garment represents the righteousness of Christ. So, rejecting the garment represents the rejection of character that qualify men to become children of God.”

Jesus spoke of this in a parable as stated in Matthew 22:11-14 “When the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ For many are called, but few are chosen.” You must be dressed right to enter the kingdom of God.

We are going to see a manifestation of flesh of the likes we have not seen possibly ever in our generation as the kingdom of God invades earth with a decree and manifestation of Babylon has fallen. Religion and politics is going to exemplify the works of the flesh, but those who are of the kingdom of God are going to shine like stars. The demarcation will be obvious and who is religious/political will be obvious from those who are kingdom. But when the dust settles, the kingdom will still be advancing and many will come out of her (Babylon) and want to know how to come in to the kingdom of God! People are about to put on new garments!

Strike the Match

I was having lunch with a new friend a couple of weeks ago and she asked me why I think God is bringing so many people together here in Nashville. The question was pregnant with presence and many possible answers. Without thinking, my spirit answered her and said, I think it is because the Nashville area is God’s upper room. I had never said anything like that before, and I am not one to say things about one city over another, so my answer surprised me, but it was not of me even though it came from me.

Last week, Tuesday, in the middle of the night, I heard clearly, “Strike the match!” I sent the word to a few friends, for I was not clear what God was saying, so sat on that word as well. Now today, while praying Psalm 29, which is the Psalm God told me is for Hebrew Year 5782, this year, I read in verse 7 “The voice of the Lord divides the flames of fire.” Immediately, the Holy Spirit sends me to Acts 2 which says, “And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.” Here we are back to the upper room which is where we started.

My friends, the flames of fire that appeared may have been something they saw, but it was definetly something they heard. The voice of God was seen in that room on Pentecost and we are about to see the voice of God again. God is striking the match and setting cities on fire with His word. Remember Jeremiah said, “Your word is like a fire shut up in my bones.” With the striking of the match the voice of the Lord is going to be made visible in a Pentecost kind of way. It is going to be suddenly, but His voice that is fire is not coming to destroy, but to purify, identify and magnify His name and His word. We are about to see the flaming sword of God’s word like we have never seen it before because the spirit of wisdom and revelation is going to crush the head of religion in the nations.

The Drought Is Over

Yesterday morning in prayer I had a vision of people who are dehydrated. I literally saw them in a shriveled up state in the spirit. Immediately after I saw this in the spirit, a bursting forth came from my spirt and I declared, “The drought is over!” I kept making this decree for it came from an ache deep within me for those who have shriveled up, for the vision was crystal clear. I sat on this vision and then this morning the Lord revealed to me what drought is actually over, that He was referencing as that decree came bursting out of me. THE DROUGHT OF JUSTICE IS OVER!

1 Kings 18:40-41 says, “Elijah said to them, “Seize the prophets of Baal! Do not let one of them escape!” So they seized them; and Elijah brought them down to the Brook Kishon and executed them there. Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain.”” Baal worship was the reason for the drought in the land. Baal worship had to do with child sacrifice, idol worship and other Babylonian activities. The abundance of rain was the answer to the many injustices done to children in the land.

Amos 5:23-24 says it this way, “Take away from Me the noise of your songs,

For I will not hear the melody of your stringed instruments. But let justice run down like water, And righteousness like a mighty stream.” Our songs do not carry the weight they should because Baal has not been dealt with in our land, this is why the people are shriveled up, dehydrated, but the drought is over. Justice is the rain that is coming down in abundance to judge the spirit of Baal in our land. Children have been the sacrifices made to this idol, but God has declared the drought is over and justice is going to roll down like water on this land starting this week. Keep your eyes pealed and your ears attentive, for I hear the sound of the abundance of rain of justice rolling down like the waters on this land this week. It’s time to sing and dance in the rain for THE DROUGHT OF JUSTICE IS OVER!!!

Air and Land Attack

I was invited, this morning, to a breakfast club. It is an under the radar movement of concerned citizens about the direction of our nation. We had one woman in attendance who got suspended without pay from her school in the area for producing a medical exemption about the mask mandate. She would not wear the mask, so they suspended her without pay, told her she was not to set foot on any of the counties school campuses until the investigation was over and she was cited for insubordination. The letter she received was scathing, because she did not wear a mask.

Another person just quit his job in corporate America to pursue full time the dissemination of information, for they believe knowledge is the only thing that breaks the mind control off of people. He went on to share how the squelching of the truth is a form of mind control.

One other woman is a sex trafficking survivor and she is obtaining a Masters Degree in Mental Health while pursuing passionately the release of women who are trapped in the sex trafficking lifestyle in her area. Her passion for these women, along with her husband, they are a force to be reckoned with as they relentlessly pursue the release of these women from this industry.

How I got to this meeting today is a following the footsteps of God story, for it was a last minute invite, with very little knowledge of what the meeting would be about. Upon arrival I am seated next to the lady who is the leader of this group. We are nestled into a board room type environment in an e-space that is extremely posh. There are 20 or so people sitting around the table and much conversation is happening about variety of subjects related the challenges we are facing in this nation. As I listened for over an hour and a half to the stories, the thoughts, the action steps they were taking, I waited for my chance to share the role I am playing in these challenging times. Being new I was not going to speak too soon.

The leader began to open it up for people to share who they are and as we went around the table, it finally came to me and I said my name and how I was new to the area. I was then asked what brought me to the area and I said, the Lord told me, “You are going to end up in Nashville, for that is where the prophets are gathering.” From this statement, more question were asked of me and I was able to share how I work the air the way they work the ground. I spoke about intercession and the need for the dismantling of the powers in the air, so they can advance with their ground game efforts. I explained how the kingdom of God is not a competition but rather we compliment each other. I deal with Ephesians 6 principalities, rulers and authorities and they deal with school boards, EEOC, and other areas of activism they are involved in.

I was shockingly surprised by the response I received. I was able to share the gospel fo the kingdom and how air and land attacks work in tandem to advance the kingdom of God on earth and set the captives free. What has in the past been a place of disconnection, was brought to an understanding of our need for one another as kingdom citizens working together on earth.

The leader turned to me and said, thank you so much for adding this into our discussion, this element is so necessary to what we are trying to do. She is getting her Master’s degree at a Christian University, so we had a kindred spirit conversation. She reiterated to the group the importance of the air warfare that I do as it pertains to what they are doing. I then ended with some good news about how much advancement in the spirit has happened and how God is winning on so many levels and the hope rose in the room significantly.

It was a morning I did not see coming, but was so glad I said yes to the invitation for kings and priests are joining forces to advance the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. They are no longer two separate and distinct entities, but rather kings and priests are partners in ministry. We had a kingdom meeting in that room this morning and my underground intercessors life merged with their underground rescue mission and the pleasure of God was evident in the unity that was palatable in the room. No competition for we are the body of Christ. Air and land attack is under way in a major way.

Inside Strong

We have all heard and experienced the fragility of our flesh. Someone says something hurtful to us and our flesh reacts. If our flesh is physically wounded it causes physical pain to us. Our flesh is weak in every way and yet we spend money, time, energy trying to make our weak flesh look good. We dress it up in designer clothes, we accessorize it with jewelry all for a temporal tent that we are going to put off one day. Did you know that your flesh, your temporal tent, is not eternal? We invest in that which is not going to last, not because we are ignorant, but because we love to portray an image.

I was cruising through Facebook last night looking at many family photos from a great time of food, family and friends gathering together. If you did not have family to gather with, these pictures can be heartbreaking as you long for family; if you were in those pictures, you loooked great and I smiled as I thought about the people I knew, what they meant to me and how grateful I am for you in my life. But seeing all the other people I did not know in those pictures and knowing how many people I did not know at my own Thanksgiving gathering yesterday, made me realize, we only know people by what we see in pictures, until we are around them and can hear what they say.

Earthy tents look good in pictures, but we as believers are not just earthly tents. We are people in whom God is wanting to build inside of us something that is lasting, eternal and strong. I call it being inside strong. Paul calls it a building not made by the hands of man. I pray as you contemplate who you want to be from this day forward, that you would make an investment, daily, to become inside strong. God’s word is building material that makes you inside strong, so when you take a hit by someone’s words, it doesn’t cause an emotional response, for God has made you inside strong. His word is always working on you on the inside, so read the word, pray and worship, they are all building blocks that make you inside strong. For our flesh is temporal, but our inner man is eternal and God wants to cloth you with strength.

2 Corinthians 5:1-3 “For we know that if this poor tent, our earthly house, is taken down, we have in Heaven a building which God has provided, a house not built by human hands, but eternal. For in this one we sigh, because we long to put on over it our dwelling which comes from Heaven– if indeed having really put on a robe we shall not be found to be unclothed.”

Grace is Doing the Work

Grace is causing the blind to see, the deaf to hear and the sleeping to awake. It is grace at work that is doing this, for God alone is the embodiment of grace. Grace is a power that causes the unbelieving to believe, the hard to become soft, the angry to be merciful. Grace is a force and it will not be denied. Zechariah 4:6-7 says, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts. ‘What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’ God Himself is releasing a grace that is moving mountains of false belief systems, mind control and hard hearts. Grace is at work all around us, can you see it, can you hear it? Listen for it today as you gather around the table with friends and family. Grace, grace is moving powerfully in our midst. Grace is for the glory of God, it is one of God’s secret weapons that gives Him glory. Paul said, “For all things are for your sakes, so that the grace which is spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God.” (2 Corinthians 4:15)

Today is a day of God’s grace manifesting in thanksgiving around tables with friends and families. Today is not a day off from what God is doing, it is a day to see on display as you laugh, cry and play that God’s grace is moving in the hearts of men and women we do not see everyday. Look for God’s grace in their face; listen for God’s grace coming out of their mouth; notice God’s grace in the air for it is everywhere. Grace has changed hearts in ways we don’t always see, but if you will look and listen you will hear and see, God has released a grace that is undeniable and it will result in thanksgiving and ultimately in God’s glory. Grace, grace!

The War Is At the Door

The war is at the gates, the war is at the ancient doors. This is where the war is always fought, at the gates, at the ancient doors. God is coming as the King of Glory, the Lord of Hosts, because He knows there is a war at the gates, at the ancient doors. But He has never lost a battle, let alone a war. Isaiah 6 tells us the train of His robe fills the temple, the train is a list of all His victories, He does not lose and He will not lose. He is coming through the gates, He is coming through the ancient doors.

Jesus said to Peter and the apostles in Matthew 16, I will build My church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. The battle is always at the gates, always at the ancient doors. Remember, the thief in John 10, did not want to come in through the door, but tried to enter another way. The thief did not want to wage war at the ancient door, for he knew he would lose, because Jesus said, I am the door of the sheep. The battle has always been at the gates, always been at the ancient doors.

King David said in Psalm 24 as he thought about the temple in Jerusalem, “Lift up your heads, O gates, And be lifted up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O gates, And lift them up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory.” Selah.

Thanksgiving kicks off the “holiday season” and with that comes battles at the gates of people’s hearts who refuse to open their ancient doors. This is why Jesus said in Revelation 3, behold I stand at the door and knock if anyone hears my voice and lets me in, I will come and dine with him. His voice is still declaring at the ancient doors I am the King of Glory, let me come in and change your story. The battle is at the gates, the battle is at the ancient doors. He is the King of glory and He knows how to win their hearts, just like He won ours. Let the Lord fight the battle, you just respond to the King of glory and sing, how great is our God.

Concealed Seismic Shift

A seismic shift has happened in the hearts and minds of people. It is a hidden work that has taken place, for it is the glory of God to conceal a matter but the glory of kings to search it out (Proverbs 25:2). God has concealed this change in the hearts of men and women, but it will be seen when God pours out His goodness and mercy upon all flesh. Once the outpouring happens, the evidence of this hidden heart alteration will be visible for all to see.

We have seen “the prodigal son” heart in people, so we have been taught that this is how people act when God pours out blessings on them. The prodigal son (Luke 15), took his inheritance and left his father’s house, squandered his money on riotous living and ended up broke. There is story after story of “famous” people and “family” members who have done this. This is why we are familiar with this lifestyle whenever someone gets blessed. But I would propose to you, that a seismic shift from “the prodigal son” heart posture to “a Davidic heart” posture has taken place, we just can’t see it yet.

David said in Psalm 23:6 “Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” When God blessed David with goodness and mercy, David became a dweller in the house of the Lord. He even said in Psalm 27:4 “One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: 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 meditate in His temple.” Get ready because when God pours out His blessings of goodness and mercy on His people, they are not going to grab the blessings of God and leave the house of God, they are going to become dwellers, beholders and builders of the house of God.

We are about to see the spirit of wisdom and revelation; mercy and goodness; poured out in such a measure, that people are not going to leave the house of God, they are going to dwell in it, for their hearts have been transformed in ways we cannot see yet, but is about to become visible. Get ready to extend those tent pegs, enlarge that dwelling for God’s goodness and mercy is going to cause people to dwell not depart from God’s house. We’ve moved from “the prodigal son” to “the heart of David”.

Generation Mandate

There is a lot of talk about the Lord coming to rule on the seven mountains of culture. There is a push for believers to be ministers in the marketplace and to manifest the kingdom every where they go. There is a mandate on this generation for generational breakthrough. None of this was our idea, this was what God had planned for us that are alive right now. With this mandate on us, God is doing things in our generation that previous generations did not see or hear. This breakthrough is not for us alone, but for us and for generations yet to be born. The testimony that comes from this generation will be spoken of for hundreds of years to come. It is going to be that magnificient what God is doing.

Here is what I see, here is what I hear. I see healing happening on such a scale that it takes down the Healthcare system and Big Pharma; I see the spirit of wisdom and revelation coming from prophets and preachers with such authority it literally breaks the strongman system called Religion. I see abundance and distribution of wealth starving the spirit of mammon for no one is afraid of lack any longer. I see the Father giving out tailor made coats to every person. This coat is made for them and as they wear it the confusion about calling, identity, gender and any other perverted thoughts that would try to make them hopeless is gone, for the coat is their calling. I see God pouring out upon us such goodness and kindness that it will lead us to repentance, we will want to turn to Him for He is reveling Himself as simply irresistible. This is what I see.

Romans 2:4 “Knowing that the goodness of God leads to repentance.”

Psalm 22:29 “All the prosperous of the earth will eat and worship!”

Psalm 103:2 “Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits”

Mighty Eagle

The strongholds of adultry and idolatry are coming down in this nation. A mighty eagle will sweep across the nation from the East coast to the West coast and every stronghold erected across this land will come down. The sweeping of this mighty eagle will be so powerful, their will be no trace of these spirits in our land. Buildings that have been erected as altars to Baal will fall never to be rebuilt. When the mighty eagle sweeps across the land, it will bring a cleansing in the air and the land, the cleansing will be both deep and high. The enemies of God, adultry and idolatry, that are fueled by a spirit of Baal worship are going to be removed completely.

God’s enemies are not people, they are sprits that manifest in the destruction of people. This is why our battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, powers and principalities operating in realms we cannot see with our physical eyes. However, the manifestation of their operation is seen in sickness, disease, confusion, immorality, perversion, and a variety of other issues mentioned in scripture, both Old and New Testament. When I say God is going to come as a mighty eagle from the East to the West and tear down the strongholds of adultry and idolatry, I am speaking of the spirits in the air and it will manifest on the land for when you break the power of the air, the results are manifested on the earth. The liberation of the land from these demonic strongholds is upon us.

Psalm 21:8-9 “Your hand will find out all your enemies; Your right hand will find out those who hate you. You will make them as a fiery oven in the time of your anger; The LORD will swallow them up in His wrath, And fire will devour them.”

Watch for the manifestion of their power being broken coming from the East and sweeping across to the West. I saw this in 2015 in a vision and it is now time for it to happen. In the words of Dutch Sheets, Damn the Torpedoes!
