God is now in the process of recruiting an army with which He will shake this old world one more time. By working through His soldiers, God will produce great miracles that will shake the established hierarchy of the so called organized religion that is in this world today. These soldiers that God is now recruiting will demonstrate the power of God to a greater extent than did the disciples in the Pentecostal age. Some will be even greater demonstrations than that of Elijah.

God's recruitment for this army has been going on for some time. Some of these soldiers have been brought up to a certain level of faith and placed in a "holding" position where they shall remain until He has brought all the new ones up to that level. Remember, the Bible says that He is the author and finisher of our faith. It is going to be through the faith of the soldiers that God will demonstrate His great power. As was stated earlier, for a long time He has been recruiting a few.

Now the recruitment has begun in earnest because God is about to perform the great miracles through His army that He promised us He would do in the Bible. John the Baptist brought the spirit of Elijah into this world and he did not even know he had it. He denied it, but Jesus confessed that it was so. The purpose of that spirit was to make straight the paths of the coming of the Lord.

"I declare unto you that you the soldiers who are being recruited now to join with those who have been recruited in the past, will bring to this world the spirit of Elijah. Again the purpose is to make straight the paths of the coming of the Lord for He is about to come again! You that sleep, now is the time to awaken! You that have been in that "holding" pattern for years, look up! You're about to be put to work! To the new recruit, I would say study the Bible diligently and seek the Lord's will in every aspect of your life. Time is short for your spiritual training, but you will be used in ways you never thought possible if you seek the Lord FIRST in your life.

"You who are to be chosen will be the soldiers of the latter rain as referred to in Scripture. This recruitment is for the end of the great revival spoken of by the prophet Joel and begun on the day of Pentecost. The end time of that great revival is the beginning of the latter rain, so you must prepare for the battle with the discipline of a professional soldier.

"Know this also. There shall be a time or process of "culling" those who are not qualified to be a member of this "Gideon's" army. Just as in Gideon's army in the bible, only a select few will be fit for service in the army of Christian soldiers the Lord will use in the battle of the latter rain."

Another thing that will happen is that the MANTLES OF GREAT MEN AND PROPHETS WILL FALL ON INDIVIDUALS WHO CAN HANDLE THE RESPONSIBILITY. Expect people to start to operate in and under the power of God like a Jeremiah or an Isaiah. In the midst of this fresh move Ray, the church is going to have to discern which leaders to follow. For there will be at least three kinds of leaders, the David's, the Jonathan's and the Saul's.

THE SAUL's leadership which is marred by envy and jealousy, seeking prestige and power and continually FEELING threatened by those along side or under them. Frequently they'll use all kinds of religious gibberish to pull down the anointed. Saul had all kinds of ideas on how David should go and fight Goliath, none were God's intended methods. One thing which has had a negative effect/grieving the Holy Spirit recently has been the dusting off of old wine skins/old methods which never worked in the past and wouldn't work in the present. Yet many have attempted to resurrect old concepts of church growth methods and have declared them to be fresh. The army of God needs to smell out that which is truly fresh and that which is truly rotten. There has been a genuine lacking of creativity in evangelism, relationship building and leadership. These don't allow others to get close to them, they avoid any real accountability. They are a hidden danger to renewal.

THE JONATHAN'S leadership, a friend of renewal but at the same time attempting to keep one foot in with the Saul's. Jonathan was killed with King Saul the same day, fighting a battle. This style of leadership is to keep every one happy, the old guard and still dancing occasional in and around renewal. While it appears to be safe, don't expect any mighty anointing, nor any great leadership. One is going to have to check out who's related to whom. Birds of a feather flock together. While many are attempting to develop strategic partnerships, very often it is just to create image, it's usually an indication of a lack of genuine vision and anointing to impact the enemies kingdom. A soft or compromising leader is deadly in times of revival, identify them and avoid them.

DAVID'S leadership, examine his life carefully, He was a man not approved of by his brethren. They even tried to saddle (burden) him with mundane responsibilities, looking after the sheep (1 Sam 18:28). "David your heart is filled with pride". Don't expect any favours from the old religious guard who will have it's fair share of PROVE YOURSELF to me/us. [When you see it, you'll understand your callings].

As I shared in the past, This move is going to be a storm of the Spirit. The Glory clouds will roll in. The lightning's of God are going to hit. " The former and latter rain will be falling at the same time, and the winds and thunders of God will be heard."

We live in the era of the end times, and God has said through many prophets around the world " I am going to change the understanding and expression of Christianity in the earth in this one generation. History has born record to those men mightily used in the past. All were men who had "paid the Price", who had spent much time alone in secret with God, and often spent years in the "wilderness" before being anointed with power from on high and sent forth to loose God's people from their chains of bondage and sin. Suddenly they arrived, as if from nowhere, utterly fearless and with a searing message that pierced straight to the hearts of their hearers.

As A.W. Tozer wrote " God has always had his specialists...who appear at critical moments in history to reprove, rebuke and exhort in the name of God and righteousness....such a man is likely to be drastic, radical, possibly at times violent. His ministry is geared to the emergencies, and that fact marks them as being different, a man set apart for such a time as this.

The training ground for such men hasn't come because they have hung unto the leadership of others. Their training ground has been deep in the "Wilderness of brokenness", nothingness and a death to self.

As the historian D'Aubigne wrote, "A great work of God is never accomplished by the natural strength of man. It is from those dry bones {skeleton's Ray !!}, the darkness and the dust of death, that God is pleased to select as the instruments by means of which he designs to scatter over the earth his light, regeneration and life.

These David's will come forth manifesting a holy recklessness not confusion, They desire to display the Glory to a dying world. These are men and women motivated by tenderness towards God and mankind. Their prayers are filled with the heart-piercing pathos of the dying Jesus. These folk have the burning flame, that interior furnace of throbbing love, one that sighs and weeps and break down under the shivering heat of all-consuming love.

These men and women understand the words of the Holy Ghost " Be ye tender hearted, forgiving one another."Tenderness must be in the very nature, and forgiveness is but the behaviour of that nature.

My Bride, You Are At a Crossroads

Dennis Drewlo

My Bride, you are at a crossroads. The decisions you make will have great consequences in the days, months, and years ahead. I place before you life and death, blessing and cursing, mercy and judgment - now you must choose.

Do not be swayed by the opinions of others or take counsel from the ungodly. Do not take counsel at the stocks. Get your orders from above. I am raising up an army who will stand on the side of righteousness.

My desire is to pour Myself out to you, My Bride, but you must be in a position to receive. I am looking for those who have humble hearts. I am looking for people who will be on their knees before Me. My desire is to pour myself out to a unified Bride and not a harem, for the Bride and the Bridegroom cannot walk together unless they are in agreement.

I have called you, My Bride, to walk by faith and not by feelings and emotions, for they will be deceptive to her. Do not believe all that you hear in the days and months ahead, but test the spirits to see where they are coming from.

My Bride, I am asking for your eyes. Give me your eyes. Do not look to the left, to the right, or behind you. I am asking for your ears. Give Me your ears. Do not be swayed by the opinions of man. Follow the cloud, and not the crowd. In the days ahead there will be many voices trying to lead you into off the mark. I have called you to hearken to the Good Shepherd, and not the voice of a stranger. Do not be swayed by what "looks good". Do not give your eyes to that which is unholy. Set your affections on the things that are above, not on things that are below. Do not forsake your birthright for a morsel of meat.

I have called My Bride to walk the narrow path, for wide is the way of destruction. I am looking for a Bride with tunnel vision, looking ahead and up, not to the left, right or behind.

Come to the Throne, My Bride. I desire to make a great exchange with you: beauty for ashes, blessing for cursing, the Garment of Praise for the Spirit of heaviness. If you will give Me all of you, I will give you all that I have for you.

I ask you to be a people of faith. You have not, because you ask not. Bring before Me, your desires, your hopes, and dreams, and I will purify them. Bring Me your hearts, and I will put them through the threshing floor.

My Bride, the veil has been rent. You can either be on one side or the other. My desire is to pull you through. My desire is for you to go all the way into the Holy of Holies.

Arise, My Bride, and come up where you belong. Do not stay where you are. Launch out into the deep. You must make the choice.

There are people waiting for you to make the choice. There are people whose destinies depend upon the choices that you will make. There are souls at stake. The Groaning Creation awaits your decision.

There is a war to be won. I am not seeking for a Bride to fight with. I am seeking a Bride to fight along side of. Do not grow weary. The battle is mine, but the victory is yours. Those of you who see it through will get the reward. You must choose: the thrill of victory, or the agony of defeat.

You, My children, were born for this hour. There is a divine plan that I have, and everyone has a part to play. I am calling you to take your place on the Wall. You are about to receive your marching orders.

The Cross is at the crossroads, My Bride. I am asking you to lay your desires at the foot of the Cross. Give Me your stoney heart and I will give you hearts of flesh. Give me your hopes and dreams, and I will show you the dream that I have for you. Come to the altar.

My Bride, you know My voice. Though there will be voices that seek to imitate My voice, but I ask My Bride to recognize the difference between the voice of Her Bridegroom and the voice of a stranger.

I am awaiting your decision. I stand with open arms, waiting to receive you, waiting for you to receive your inheritance. Come, and I will give you what you have longed for, My precious Bride.

In Christ,
Dennis Drewlo

Hidden Agendas, My Timing

Olivia Reitz

Not to allow your minds to be quickly unsettled or disturbed or kept excited or alramed, whether it be by some [pretended] revelation of [the] Spirit or by word or by letter [alleged to be] from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has [already] arrived and is here. II Thess 2:2

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven. Eccl 3:1

Many of My people, even some of My prophets and apostles, are focused on their own needs ... prestige, personal pride, selfish ambition, adoration, of being of a one-upmanship over another attitude. In doing this, you are not helping My sheep "or" weeping over the dying people of the world. My beloved, do not mistake that in your service to Me, that I do not see the hidden agendas and motives, satisfying the flesh, instead of ME. Yes, I will speak through My prophets, but be careful of why you are speaking forth the prophecies and of what you say. You must search your hearts, and seek to always be in My presence, when you do, your own selfish agendas fall by the wayside. Be careful, My children, that no selfish motives prompt you to deceive My children in any way, either by prophetic uttereance or by vision. Whether you be apostle, prophet, pastor, evangelist or teacher, I say to you now, search your hearts to every motive that might be hidden within.

I am raising up many unknown people, ones who I am giving great discernment and prophetic utterance in these last days. Do not look upon them with distain, for I have been releasing My anointings upon them. I have said "The first will be last and the last will be first." I move in ways you cannot comprehend, and many will be astonished at what I AM about to reveal and through whom I will work. You concern yourself about date setting - Timing is in My hands, do not try to calculate My times. Just be in My presence, I will give you what I have chosen for you to have and to proclaim forth to the people. Again, I say unto you, search your hearts for hidden agendas, as I will not allow this to continue. ... For I AM MOVING ...

I AM rallying My remnant, calling many more into position. Many of My hidden ones, who have been trained and equipped by My hand, I will now move into the places that I want them to be. I will visit My prepared ones, bestowing upon them My Supernatural Power. My remnant - prepared, ready - and - "waiting".

Let it be known, "I AM MOVING .... MY SPIRIT IS ALREADY MOVING." Let it be known, there is a cry going out to My Bride, "PREPARE, PREPARE". The Bridegroom cometh. Put on your wedding garments for I come "quickly". The time of preparation has been fulfilled. It is now the time of the joining of the bride to the bridegroom. Do not delay, do not hold back, but come forth in My Glory that I have prepared for you. There is a joining, a joining, making the two one. One heart and one spirit. IN MY TIMING, IN MY TIMING.

A Judging Coming

Pam Clark

I see a great shaking coming to the Body of Christ and the leadership as we know it today. The sheep have been crying out and the Lord has heard their cries. The shepherds have not been feeding the flocks.

Instead they have found comforts in friendships they have enjoyed, much more than doing their assignments of fulfilling the Great Commission, ignoring the Flock of God. At first much of their coming together was beneficial, but it has since become a snare.

Instead of seeking God for themselves, to hear what He would say for His Body, they began seeking what He would say for them. Their focus then became very introverted and fleshly strongholds established. From there, their focus turned into protecting the stronghold "in the Name of the Lord," but much of that is getting ready to come down and the Flock of God will rejoice.

For the crying flock is hungry, hungry for the benefits seen and promised and denied. The shepherds have become false and some even villians. Some will truly repent, but then others will find their token repentance fully lacking for their hearts are calloused to the tender and merciful ways of God. The once true shepherds have allowed the flowery prophecies of flattering words to take root as weeds in the garden camp of the Lord.

They have stolen words from others and have claimed them as their own. But the sheep who hear His Voice know when these now false shepherds declare that which is not of the One who is True. In reverence and deference they have awaited His Hand, through the leadership they so cherished and loved, but now defiled with filthy lucre, vain words and broken promises.

Quietly, yet with trembling, the Flock has been waiting for the moving of the waters that cannot flow through once trusted vessels. With shame they hang their heads for the condition of the Flock, repenting and waiting for what only the True Shepherd can do. They are eager to serve, but are awaiting the instruction from His Eye.

The new leadership will rise up humbly and those who have grasped and pushed others aside for the glory and position will find themselves mostly observing the next move of God. Those who have tried to take the new positions by force will find themselves on the outside looking in, if having fallen on their faces, they do not repent.

The Kingdom of God is not haughty and the true Flock knows it. The shrewd manipulators will cease.

The new winds of the birth pangs will give place to many victories. Servants will arise to their kingly positions. God will raise up leadership He can trust with their souls.

Woe To Those At Ease

Roger Taylor

Woe to those who are at ease in Zion, to those who want my blessings but not my presence, for they shall have neither. I am coming to my threshing floor and judgment begins in the house of God. I am beginning to shake everything that can be shaken and only those whose feet are firmly planted on the rock that cannot be moved, shall stand. Come to me that we may speak face-to-face about our love for one another. I am preparing a bride without spot or wrinkle; she must prepare herself as well.

Cry out to me: "Create in me a clean heart, O God", and I will answer. Bring your wounded hearts to me for I am the one that can heal you. Open the dark chambers of your soul that you have tried to hide from me for I am the light that dispels the darkness. Do not lean on your own understanding but follow closely in my footsteps where I will lead you for the enemy is setting many snares in your path. He knows his time is short.

Step into my open arms so that you may soon hear: "Well done, good and faithful servant" and receive the crown of righteousness that has been stored up for you since the beginning of time.

Hannah's Womb

Ching Co

1 Samuel 1:1-28


There are many people within the body of Christ that has been called spiritual Hannah's. God has used your lives as spiritual wombs where the Holy Spirit has planted heavenly visions and dreams.

You have carried these visions and allowed it to grow deep within despite the outward signs of barrenness and seemingly fruitlessness in the past years. And like Hannah, year after year, you did not stop crying out to the Lord to bring to life all that you've sense growing inside of you. You have faced provocation, you have cried bitter tears. Like Hannah, you have been mistaken for a drunk because of your desperate cries for help.


The Lord wants to announce to every one who has walked this path that your season for birth is at hand. As the Lord remembered Hannah and in the course of time she conceived and gave birth to Samuel (1 Samuel 1:19-20). So your time for giving birth to your Samuel has also come and is now at hand.


But like Hannah who brought Samuel to the house of the Lord and give him to the Lord and he worshipped the Lord there. So many of the Samuel's that will be birthed in the coming days will belong totally to the Lord.


Like Abraham, your Isaac will soon be born to you. And in the same way that God instructed Abraham to offer Isaac as a burnt offering. So you too have to offered your Isaac to Him. (Genesis 22:1-2)

"Even now, prepare your hearts" says the Lord. "Learn to let go even before You received them. Take hold of them lightly for they belongs to Me."


Many visions that God has planted in the spiritual wombs of His people are about to come to fulness. However, like Hannah everyone of them will belong to God from the moment of birth. He will raised up others to care and make this vision grow and like Hannah, many who have carried them will have to watch their spiritual visions grow from a distance.

The Lord is saying today that we must not be afraid to let go of our Samuel's once they are birthed. No matter how young they look and irregardless of the surrounding where they will grow. The Lord will overshadow these visions and just like Samuel, God's hand will be upon them and He will not allow these visions to die but will fulfill the purpose for which they have been birthed. (3 Samuel 3:19-20)

Even now the Lord is speaking to many of the spiritual Hannah's and encouraging us to lay our spiritual Samuel's to Him. He wants full control of how these vision will be fulfilled. He will determine and chart the path that it will take and grow. He may choose to call and appoint others to do this, or He may in due time returned stewardships of these visions to us.

However the Lord would choose to do this. He desires for His children to have that assurance that our coming Samuel's will be in GOOD HANDS. HIS HAND.

In the same manner that the Lord was with Samuel as he grew up , and he let none of his words fall to the ground. And Samuel's word came to all Isreal (3 Samuel 19-20) So the Most High God will do the same with every one of our spiritual Samuel's

May the peace of the Most High God flood our soul as we choose to walk the path that Hannah did. And may these words from the mouth of Hannah becomes our's too as we rejoice in the victory that the Lord will bring to those who love and obey Him all the way.

HANNAH'S PRAYER: (1 Samuel 2:1-12)

Then Hannah prayed and said:

"My heart rejoices in the Lord; in the Lord my horn is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance.

"There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.

"Do not keep talking so proudly or let your mouth speak such arrogance, for the Lord is a God who knows and by him deeds are weighed.

"The bows of the warriors are broken, but those who stumbled are armed with strength.

"Those who were full hire themselves out for food, but those who were hungry hunger no more. She who was barren has borne seven children, but she who has had many sons pines away.

"The Lord brings death and makes alive; he brings down to the grave and raises up.

"The Lord sends poverty and wealth; he humbles and he exalts.

"He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor.

"For the foundations of the earth are the Lord's; upon them he has set the world.

"He will guard the feet of his saints, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness.

"It is not by strength that one prevails; those who oppose the Lord will be shattered. He will thunder against them from heaven; the Lord will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strenght to his king and exalt the horns of his anointed."

Then Elkanah went home to Ramah, but the boy ministered before the Lord under Eli the priest.

Harley Hickling

Since a little before New Years I have been hearing Abba speaking to me the word Breakout. I have heard Him repeat this word to me now on several different occasions. I finally asked Him this evening why was He speaking this word to me. This is what He said:

This year is the year of breakout for many of My people. Just as when the walls of a prison suddenly collapse, many of those imprisoned within will see that collapse as an opportunity to breakout from that which has constrained and kept them securely contained within. So shall it be for many among My beloved for I Am moving and I Am moving in great power to set My beloved free from that which has kept them bound and imprisoned and has kept many of you ineffective and frustrated in ministry. With this breakout many of My beloved shall be breaking forth from demonic strongholds which have kept them bound, breaking out into a new life of power and service in My kingdom. No longer shall they be imprisoned by their enemy and with this release they shall move into utterly new and undiscovered realms of liberty and in freedom to pursue Me with all their hearts and with their very lives. My beloved you are in for some tremendous times as My power goes forth into your world to set you free.

But this is also a year of breakout for another group of My beloved. A smaller group, a group often written about in this past year as those I have been preparing for such a time as this. A group who have sought no recognition or gain. A group who are not only content not to be in the limelight but have in fact avoided recognition whenever possible. A group who are only concerned about seeking My presence and My face and whose one and only desire is to serve Me and Me alone. A group who have given up all that they may be unencumbered in their service to Me. A group who have permitted Me to cleanse, to prepare and to equip them for My service in this new day, the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord. For you who have surrendered all to Me, your time of breakout is soon upon you. My Glory is even now forming a cloud about you and even as you are sensing its presence forming, you are also sensing My increased anointing and power as My work of equipping you for My service is reaching its final stage of completion. I Am ready to commission each of you as you break out of obscurity and break forth in My mighty power into service that you have only known prior to now as something deeply seated in your heart for I placed this special calling within you when I first formed you and just as a caterpillar must spend a season in its chrysalis before it emerges as a thing of beauty, so have you now been dramatically changed because you have submitted yourselves to My presence and care and have quietly and obediently permitted Me to shape, cleanse and groom you in My presence and now you too like the Butterfly are coming forth in Beauty and in Power such has no man has possessed since Adam’s great fall. You have been called many things in the past. Dread Warriors, Golden Warriors, Sons of Glory and other great sounding titles but to Me the only title of significance that is upon each of you is Servant of the Most High.

The world shall be stunned and forever changed and blessed as I send you forth to minister to the vast multitudes of those who are lost and feeble. Great and marvelous miracles will be attributed to you My beloved and I shall be greatly glorified in you!

Come To Me Alone

Marsha Burns

I keep hearing in my spirit, "Woe to those who join house to house; they add field to field, till there is no place where they may dwell alone in the midst of the land!" (Isaiah 5:8) And, the Lord says, I have called you to seek Me first and to have personal, intimate relationship with Me. Yet, many of you are still seeking Me and revelation of My kingdom by relying on your church, your pastor, your friend, the Internet, Bible studies, prayer groups and Christian television. You do indeed have a tendency to itching ears, and you have heaped teachers to yourselves. When are you going to come to Me alone? For, you can say, "Lord, I know You." Yet, I say to you, I don't know you for you have not spent time in My presence. You have a knowledge of Me, but you don't really know Me. I call you to come that we may intimate fellowship. Come alone!

Fire On the Earth

George G. Delo

"I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!" (Luke 12:49).

I am even now sending forth a fire on the earth to prepare My people and My church. It is even now being kindled in the hearts of My chosen ones. As on the Day of Pentecost, like as tongues of fire, it is alighting on the hearts of My people to separate and to make alive. It is all at once a consuming fire of purification and a kindling fire of zeal. I am sending forth My spirit of burning to wash away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and to purge the blood of Jerusalem from her midst, a refining fire to purify the sons of Levi. And I am purifying your faith as gold tested in the fire that you may be found to be to My praise and My glory. Even as it consumes, it makes alive.

I am releasing My baptism of fire upon My people. With My winnowing fan I will separate you and burn up the chaff. I will bring you through the fire, and refine you as silver is refined, and test you as gold is tested. You will call on My name, and I will answer you. I will say, 'This is My people'; and each one will say, 'The LORD is my God.' As wood is gathered in a pile to make a great burning, so will I gather together to Myself My saints, to make a great burning. And as the fires increase and the flames spew off sparks that kindle the brush, so will the sparks of My burning fly out from your midst and be carried on the wings of My Spirit to kindle the flames of My burning from heart to heart, city to city and nation to nation. I will send forth My chosen ones with the spirit of Jehu and they shall go forth with the fires of My zeal and gather My remnant people for the kindling of their hearts. My fire shall flow forth from their hands to consume the chaff and set the captives free.

I am anointing My servants to carry the coals of My fire to My people. They shall shine with My brightness and turn many to righteousness. Cities shall be set ablaze at My word and multitudes shall be baptized with My consuming fire. Islands and coast lands shall be set ablaze and send forth sparks of revival across the waters. Out of the fiery furnace shall come forth laborers for the harvest ready to do My will.
