Grace Expires

Did you know God gives grace to the wicked, but that grace has an expiration date? In Daniel 4, King Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon has a dream of a tree and he shares the dream with Daniel who interprets the dream for him Daniel ends his interpretation with these words, “Therefore, o king, may my advice be pleasing to you: break away now from your sins by doing righteousness and from your iniquities by showing mercy to the poor, in case there may be a prolonging of your prosperity” (Daniel 4:27). This statement began the grace period for king Nebuchadnezzar. He now had some time to repent, or the “tree” which was him would be cut down to a stump.

How do I know it was a timed grace period? Because Daniel 4:29 says, “Twelve months later…” God gave king Nebuchadnezzar one year to repent, but he didn’t so verse 31 says, “A voice came from heaven, saying, King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is declared: soveriegnty has been removed from you.” God gave a wicked king time to repent, but he refused to do so. The same happened in Exodus 6-12 as God gave Pharaoh grace through 9 plagues to repent, but when he refused, the 10th plague was administered and then by Exodus 12:12 God was dealing with all the gods of Egypt saying, “I will go through the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments — I Am the Lord.” Grace expired on Pharaoh, just like it did on Nebuchadnezzar.

I believe we are living in a time where grace has expired on wicked rulers. We are going to see the judgment of God on wickedness and wicked leaders, but it is not because they were not given time to repent, it is because grace has expired for them. God is slow to anger and abounding in love, even when it comes to the wicked rulers, but when God says enough is enough, he executes judgment so His people can be set free from their tyrannical rule. I believe we are at this point, grace was given, repentance did not happen, so judgment is here for judgment eradicates wickedness and establishes righteousness. It is not a time to rejoice in their judgment, but we must be aware of what is happening. Eyes wide open. #watchapril

God’s Narrative

God has a narrative that He is speaking and He is not changing His narrative. The media has a narrative they are speaking and they are not changing their narrative. One is a narrative of life and life abundantly and the other is a narrative of death, doom, destruction. The narratives could not be more opposite right now. The narrative you speak is the narrative you believe, because it is the narrative you are consuming. Many believers have made it their mission to promote the narrative of the media, they share what the media is sharing, not realizing a believers words have authority, so when we repeat the negative narrative we actually empower it in the atmosphere. We are not to be unaware of the narrative, but we are not to echo it, establish it.

The narrative of God, being spoken by many people who are hearing God’s narrative is RECOMPENSE, RESTITUTION, RECOVER ALL! It is the narrative God has been speaking for a couple years now and many have spoken it. The narrative of God is not a doom and gloom scenario, a rapture, end times message, rather it is one of “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” God is bringing His kingdom to earth, we are not getting raptured to heaven. The days of suffering, sorrow and sadness are being recompensed by our God.

I was praying Psalm 90 today and the narrative of God was so obvious, He is saying it everywhere all the time, so I echo His narrative. After multiple verses speaking about what the people of God suffered, the Psalmist prays, “O satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness, That we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Make us glad according to the days You have afflicted us, And the years we have seen evil. Let Your work appear to Your servants And Your majesty to their children. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.” This is the narrative of God, may we be a people who echo what He is saying, so it can be established in the atmosphere.

Who Said?

When I was a child growing up in Minneapolis, we used to play outside from sun up to sundown. We only came in the house to eat, use the bathroom, or check in with mom to see what she needed from us when she called. We lived to be outside with our friends, playing in the neighborhood. One of the games we played was called King of the Hill. Maybe you have played it with your friends. The goal of the game was to knock the “king” off the hill, so you could stand on the hill and declare yourself “king of the hill”. It was a moment of elation as you stood with hands raised and everyone knew you were the “king” for that moment. I say moment, because it wouldn’t be long before you were knocked off and someone else was declaring themselves to be the new “king of the hill”.

I was listening to a city council meeting online yesterday for the city in which I Iive as various citizens got up and explained why they wanted the council to vote yes or no to have a Gay Pride Parade in our city. One lady got up and said, “I am a gay conservative Republican, I have more in common with you than you know, and it is okay to be gay and Christian, so the council should vote yes on the parade.” Without missing a beat, I spoke back to the television and declared, “Who said?” Who said, it is okay to be gay and Christian? Who said? Is this what God said? Is this what the Bible said? Is this what your Pastor said? Who said? I was not mad at her, I was wanting to know, who said it’s okay to be gay and Christian?

The Lord led me to Judges 19-21, Judges 19:1 says, “Now it came about in those days, when there was no king in Israel”; now listen to the the last verse in Judges 21:25 “In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” Book ends! When we live kingless, we act like we are “king of the hill”. However, we are not the King of anything, there is only one King and His name is Jesus Christ. If we choose to live without a King, we will set our own rules, standards and make our own decrees, but those who live with a King in their life are asking kingless people, “who said?” We can’t claim to be Christian and live without a King. Kings set the standard for their kingdom, not the citizens of the kingdom.

Shazam 2023

Shazam, that was the word spoken to me about this year. It was going to be a year of suddenlies, Shazam! Little did I know how true this word was going to be right out of the gate. But in true God fashion, it was not just a word for me personally, it was a word for the nations. Friends 2023 is a year of Shazam, it is a year of suddenlies. What does that mean and what does that look like and what does that produce? These are questions we need to answer to understand Shazam 2023.

Amos 9:13 says, “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” GOD’s Decree. Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills.” This is a Shazam scripture that tells us what Shazam means. Blessings after blessings after blessings are going to come from every direction and all at once, changes will happen so fast, we won’t know how to keep up. Now this sounds amazing and it is, but our minds take a minute to catch up with what we are about to experience. Since we have lived in a place of waiting for so long, when it all starts to manifest, our mind struggles to stay in alignment with the new season, the new day. It’s not a lack of experiences, it’s a mindset that must catch up. Our minds must realize we are no longer in a season of waiting, but we have literally walked into manifestation. This new reality will be experienced before our minds fully comprehend it.

Shazam, a movie whose subtitle is The Fury of the Gods, depicted on the silver screen what is happening in the world today. Babylon is falling, the enemy has been defeated and life is about to get better and better and better. The movie is prophetic for those who have eyes to see. Shazam! Suddenly, good news everywhere, life and life abundantly. I know we are not used to this so most can’t believe it, but we are seeing it and will continue to see it at a rapid pace. It is Shazam time.

One final scripture for you to hear, so you can see what is happening. Proverbs 28:28 says, “When corruption takes over, good people go underground, but when the crooks are thrown out, it’s safe to come out.” People are about to come out of hiding, come out of the wilderness, come out of Egypt, come out of Babylon. They are coming out because God is casting out corruption, so righteousness can exalt the nations again. Watch April, it’s going to be the start of a whole new year in the nations, and we are about to see April showers of blessings like we have never seen before. Shazam!!!

Watch April

WATCH APRIL! It was August 2022 when the Lord spoke these two words to me, “WATCH APRIL”. No context, no further information, just watch April. That was almost seven months ago, when I heard that and little did I know all that would be happening in the world and the spirit back in August. I mentioned this prophetic word to my friend Sharon Ward Shirley the other day and she said, you need to share that, for there is much significance in what you heard. She now hash tags #WatchApril on things she says to me as she is watching with me.

I am so thankful for the body of Christ, because we need each other to understand what God is saying. I remember the week I was listening to Johnny + Elizabeth Enlow on Elijah Streams and he was teaching on the prophetic. He said, “If God tell you the what, He will not tell you the when; and if God tells you the when, He will not tell you the what.” He went on to say, the Lord does this because He wants us to be dependent on one another. This helped me so much, I tend to hear the what, but had no clue on the when things would come to pass, but this time, the Lord told me the when, WATCH APRIL, but I have no idea the what.

I just wanted to share that with all of you so you to can join me in watching in April. I am not sure what is coming, but I know I am supposed to watch and wanted to invite you to the WATCH APRIL prophetic word from the Lord. I have a sense we are going to see a lot happening next month in many spheres of society and in the spirit. Will you join me as we WATCH APRIL?

The Season Of The Song Not The Sword

The Lord is decreeing over the nations, “The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty.” I keep hearing it over and over again this morning as I am praying in tongues. “The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty.” I know it is a verse, but where, and what is God wanting us to hear today. It is in Zephaniah 3:17, but the exact wording I am hearing is the King James Version. Here is what it says, “The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.” The Lord is not coming with a hammer to crush the nations, He is not coming in wrath to destroy the world, He is not coming with punishment for our poor choices, no our God is coming to us with joy, love and singing.

“The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty.” He is mighty to save us, not with a sword but with a song. Many times we miss the coming of the Lord into our midst as mighty, because we assume how He is coming. We see a battle so we assume a sword; we see an enemy, so we assume a rapture. If we are going to see what God is doing in our day we must change the way we think, so we can adjust the way we see. In past seasons God came as fire on the altar for Elijah to defeat the prophets of Baal; He has come as an East wind so a nation could cross the Red Sea; He has come as a baby in a manger, innocent, pure, vulnerable; He has come in many ways in many generations. But now, He is coming to us with a song, not a sword. He is mighty in the midst of us, not as a man of war, but as a love song.

When we are used to war, fighting, swords, we will find it hard to hear the song of the Lord, that He is singing over us. I encourage you, put your sword down, take off your battle worn armor, and open your ears to listen so your eyes can see. “The Lord thy God in the midst of us is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.” Can you hear the song of the Lord defeating our enemies?

Higher Narrative

When the narrative of the nations are screaming bank failures, earthquakes, protests, inflation and every other negative report, it takes faith to ascend above the narrative of the lower atmosphere to hear the report of the Lord. The microphone is in the hands of the media, they set the narrative and since we live in the realm where their voice is the loudest, we cannot deny what we hear. However, the Word of God, which is living and active, sharper than a two-edged sword still cuts between bone and marrow and still separates the thoughts and intentions of our hearts (Hebrews 4:12). The Word of God is the final say on all matters in the lower atmosphere, for it has superior authority to anything the media may say.

Reading Ephesians 1 this morning, the Lord reminded me and I want to remind us, “The operative energy of the manifested strength of God’s might, which might was operative in the Christ when God raised Him from among the dead and seated Christ at His right hand in the heavenly places, over and above every government and authority and power and lordship and every name that is constantly being named, not only in this age, but also in the one about to come.” Remember, Jesus is over every government, authority, power, lordship and name that is named. Jesus is seated, He is not striving, struggling, or stressed out about what is happening on the earth. He is the ruler of the nations and men, no matter what their names are, they are but a vapor, Jesus Christ is eternal.

Lift up your eyes and look at your King seated on a governmental throne ruling the nations. He see’s it all, He is judge of all the earth and He is not slow in His dealing with injustice and wickedness, finances and families. We are seeing righteousness exalt the nations, for God has decreed vindication for the nations. Babylon is falling, fear not my friends, our God is for us and not against us, He wears the victors crown so we overcome!

The Beauty of Glory

For the past couple of weeks I have been talking with the Lord about the word glory. I have researched the Hebrew of glory which is kabod, and means weighty, wealth, abundance, and I have studied the scriptures where glory is mentioned, like when the glory filled the temple so the priests could not even minister. Yet, there was a nudging of the Holy Spirit inside of me that kept saying, “there is more to glory than you realize. There are other aspects of it that have not been brought into the forefront of your thinking.” The Holy Spirit knows all truth and we are told leads us into all truth, so I was leaning in to hear, what is glory and what will it look like in this move of God?

Glory will include miracles of many kinds; glory will bring in the harvest; and glory will cause us all to fall face down, but there is another aspect of glory that I sense the Holy Spirit is saying will manifest in our midst. Glory is going to make all things beautiful. Beauty is going to be a manifestion of glory in this move of God. The Lord has shown me how sin makes us ugly, it deforms us, it misaligns us and makes us not feel beautiful. He showed me how shame, which makes us hide, is ugly, for we were made to display the glory of God, the beauty of God and shine for all to see. The Bible even says a woman’s hair is her glory, it is her beauty, God is going to release beauty as a sign of His glory. He is about to make His people beautiful, His creation beautiful, everything is about to encounter the glory of God that is beauty.

Christianity has become so professional, so predictable, so presumptive, but God is about to remove these parameters that have caged us into what we can control. He is making us beautiful, because He loves romance, spontaneity, mystery, and this will cause us to live in awe and wonder again. Our God is releasing glory, which is beauty, for He is inviting His bride to be pure, spotless, without wrinkle, and the glory of God is about to beautify the people of God. We are headed into the Esther beauty treatments, so we as the Church can display the glory of God in the land of the living. Glory is beauty, that is why glory looks good on us, makes us radiant, so we can arise and shine and give Him all our glory, beauty, it is all for Him, we are His.

Impromptu Prophetic Adventure

There was nothing on the calendar today, no appointments, no meetings, just some down time to read, write, pray and enjoy time alone in my room. That was until I got a text message from Marcella Mitchell that asked me to pray for a couple of bills that that the state of Tennessee has on the table which will alter homeschooling for families in this state. I sought some more information about bills HB1214 and SB1194 and came to realize quickly, I needed to go down to the state capital building and pray. I quickly got dressed and headed out the door.

Once I arrived at the state capital, after climbing a lot of stairs, I walked in and headed to the right, and the first room I see is the Original Supreme Court room. I walk in and I knew this is where I was to pray. I set my purse on the chair and began to walk back and forth praying in tongues. The Holy Spirit prompted me to decree from the podium 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 which says, everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God must come down. I stand behind the podium and address the court with this decree as God said to do. I then began to pray some more for ancient boundary markers to not be moved, for righteousness to exalt our nation and for the state of Tennessee to be cleansed of every anti-Christ spirit in this building. At the end of my prayer time, I sensed in my spirit a song rising, so I call Marcella so she can sing it over the room, but she was homeschooling, so I sang, “Every high thing must come down, every stronghold must be broken, you wear the victors crown, you overcome, you overcome!”

I leave that room, knowing I did what I was brought in that building to do. I walk around to see what else is in there and it just confirmed I was praying in the right room today. Decrees were made in the original Supreme Court room in the capital building in Nashville, TN. I then head outside, to blow the shofar and seek help from heaven, the sounds attracted some security officers, but I was done before they could ask me to stop. I then went to the Liberty Bell on site and anointed it with oil and rang it as I decreed Leviticus 25:10, which is etched on the bell, JUBILEE. I called for land restoration, debt cancellation and family reconciliation. I walked past the Andrew Jackson monument and the Lord said, lay hands on that monument and declare financial freedom for this nation. I did as I was commanded. Then I headed down the steps back to my truck.

Little did I know on the way down, I saw multiple tuning forks right next to the Music Hall of Fame Museum. I got closer and was reminded that the Lord had me come down to Music Row and use a tuning fork to tap all of the studios so they would release the frequency of heaven. Now I am being invited to do the same thing to the Music Hall of Fame Museum, so I grab my tuning fork and tap the building seven times and tune it to the frequency of heaven. I walk back to the truck to leave and the address on the building I am parked in front of is 444. You can’t make this stuff up. I love going on prophetic adventures with God. Thanks Marcella for the prayer assignment for today. God is for us so who can be against us? No one!

The Future Is Bright

When you speak what God is saying it is speaking from a realm that is not reached our reality yet, but rather is calling things that are not as though they were. It is called faith. The substance of things hoped for the evidence of things yet seen. Many people live in reality and can’t see the future so when someone speaks from what they’ve seen in the future many can’t see it. Until it becomes reality. The Lord has shown me all the good that is coming to us and an amazing future. Just like Jeremiah said to Israel before they went into 70 years of Babylonian captivity, “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you, to give you a future and a hope.” When you are in captivity you can’t see any other reality, unless you see and hear by faith. Well, the Jerusalem Post is now speaking what has been spoken, it is becoming reality. I hope this helps you see and hear what the Lord has been saying before it became reality. We are living in great days to be alive.
