A Direct Attack

Marsha Burns

Yesterday in our intercessors' meeting, the Lord showed us that the enemy has launched a direct attack against us, which has resulted in us being put down, locked out and hindered in various ways. The devil has put us under pressure so that we would make mistakes and allow him to take control of our situations. This pressure has also caused us to lose control in a number of areas and has put us on the defensive so that we are trying to protect ourselves instead of being on the offensive, which is necessary for us to move ahead and gain the victory. The Lord told us that we had to change our mindsets from that of victim to that of being aggressive in maintaining increase. He also warned us to not lose sight of our goal in the midst of the skirmish. We were also shown that God is moving us to establish boundaries in our lives, both personally and corporately, and our areas of responsibility and ministry are being redefined. I believe these things also apply to the corporate church and not just our body of believers. Thank You, Lord, for Your faithfulness and leading, guiding and directing our steps. AMEN.

Glimpses of Glory, Eyes of Jesus

Jim Grayson

We are coming into the most crucial period of our country's history. The church will shortly be challenged by the Holy Spirit to make some changes. It's up to His kids to be done with this world and run to Him, allow Him to take us from glory to glory and to be transformed into His likeness. Our deepest desire should be that the Lord Jesus be seen in us. That means death to self, beloved, and although dying always hurts, there are tremendous rewards to be had. How's the song go? "Consuming fire, Sweet perfume, Your awesome Presence fills this room." I've experienced this and I'm just a man, nothing special to the world but, as a Child of the Most High King, I am precious in His sight. He loves my praise, and accepts it and treasures it, especially when it is born of pain and comes out in the darkness. He loves you, too, my friends, and so longs to fill you and thrill you with His presence. Again, we have a work to do. We must press in to Him.

If you want to know Jesus, to really know Him, you have to concentrate on Him, rather than on yourself or the world. The enemy will attempt to make you self centered, and will come in as a flood to turn you away, pointing out all your shortcomings and saying you're not fit for the Kingdom, to which I have learned to reply, "Of course, I'm not but I am acceptable by the Blood of the Lamb." That stops him in his tracks. If there's anything the enemy hates, it's the Blood of the Lamb, for that is what the Revelation says we will use to defeat the enemy, that and the word of our testimonies.

There is but one way to have Jesus in our lives. We have to die to our own desires, to die to everything but Him. That's why so few people really go on with God. It's always painful to die...always...but just as Jesus was obedient to the will of the Father and went to the cross, so must we be obedient, adopting the example set by our Lord Jesus, and must each day go to our cross and die, taking it up and following Him. The more we die, the more Jesus is in us, and the more Jesus is in us, the more He moves and works through us, even to healings and great signs and wonders. When you die to yourself, you create a void which Jesus fills. You will do what you see Jesus do, for you will see with His eyes, and not your own, and His eyes view the things of this earth with a clarity and reality unknown to man...but it can be known to man, if we're willing to turn loose of the world and the right to our own life. The glory will be such that it all will be worth it here on this earth, not to mention what you will find when you go Home to meet Him.

A Time of Preparation

Yolanda Ballard

Come unto Me and rejoice for this is the season to praise Me for what I am about to do through you, My children. Yes, this is the season to praise Me not just for who I am but what I will do through you. For I have been preparing you, My children, through many hard times in order that you would be prepared to carry My glory for I can only move through a broken vessel of honor and glory.

Come unto Me and let Me continue to purge you of any impurities. Let Me bring all the dross to the surface so that I can completely skim it off. For that is what these hardships that I have allowed you to go through were ordained to accomplish in you....a total cleansing and purging of your heart. For it is under the fire of My love, through the trials that I have designed for you alone, that you find out what is really in your heart.

Yes, you want to trust Me, but there is still so much in the way that hinders that perfect trust to come forth. For I have placed in every heart of My people the measure of faith that they need to walk through ever trial victoriously, but because of the root of unbelief you have not been able to stand on My word.

So come unto Me and let Me show you that you really do have what it takes to stand against the fiery darts of the enemy of your soul. Let Me show you that deep in your heart that you do have My word planted. Let Me show you that you can stand and yes, you can rest in My faithfulness.

It is utmost importance, My children, that you come unto Me and rest in My presence. Let Me hold you close and refresh you with My loving touch. Let Me hold your head against My breast and let you hear My heart of love beat for you. Let Me whisper in your ear what you long to hear of My grace and truth and My comforting words of love. Let Me strengthen you and show you the way to go and prepare you..... for what is ahead of you is a mighty move of My spirit. Yes, I will move through you mightily and it is all up to you. Will you draw close to Me and let Me do My work, says your God.

The Mantles

Dave Howe

There is coming a Transferring of the Mantles - Like the handing over of a coat from father to son - Like the cloak dropping from Elijah to Elisha as Elijah was taken up upon his chariot of fire. - Like the handing over of the kings scepter of authority to his princely son - The new king to be - Like the changing of the guard.

Pick up your Mantles - Put that ring upon your finger - Pass on that which I have given unto you - Give up so that it can be given unto you - Shaken together - Pressed down - Running over - For as you give you shall receive.

Take off your old clothes and put on those robes that I AM giving unto you - For it is time to put on your wedding garments.

Do not look back as did Lots wife - For when she looked back she turned into a pillar of salt.

For her heart was still set on past things - She lost the Ministry that I wanted to lead her into for she held on to the past - Held on to her ways - Did not obey my Word.

My people - Look towards to that Holy mountain before you - Climb my people climb - Yes climb into that cloak - Into that new mantle of anointing before you.

For there is a new day before you - All you have to do is step forward into that day.

So be not afraid - Look at me - Yes SEEK MY FACE - Step out of that boat of past things. Come and walk on the water of faith with me for you can do all things by faith in me says the Lord.

Yes - This is the day of the transferring of the mantles from one to another - Pick up those mantles before you and strike the waters before you - Yes put on Christ.

And as you strike the waters before you in faith they shall part like the waters parted before my servant Elisha in days of old.

So I say again - Pick up those mantles - For by doing so you will do greater things in my name in the days ahead - Gave greater Glory unto my Son says the Lord.

Seeds of Righteousness

Debbie Cossu

2 Corinthians 9:10 "Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food, will supply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness."

I intercede in your behalf. I am planting seeds of holiness in Sprit and in Truth that will bear fruit such as you have never seen. I am planting fresh seeds in your heart and looking for a harvest of righteousness that will flourish.

This seed shall be firmly rooted in the soil of My love. These roots of righteousness shall spring up and blossom throughout the earth. They will produce a fragrance of Holiness that will drape the humanity you have tried to clothe by yourself.

The winds that are coming will blow away all that is not rooted deep in the soil of My love. The weeds and tares that are growing along with the seed of righteousness have no root in this soil and will be plucked out by My own hand. Circumstances that have attempted to choke out your very life will be uprooted quickly and removed in an unprecedented way so the beauty of holiness can be seen.

What has been planted in righteousness will cause My people to be clothed anew. The holiness found in My presence will spring up in places you never expected, for I am no respecter of persons. There are those who bear My heart that have not found a place in heart of "the church." I am about to honor the seeds of mercy and compassion they have planted. They have watered the ground with their tears, and now other tears must fall.

There is seed yet to be planted, come and help. The crop of righteousness and holiness I am looking to find in the earth shall be sown in tears. Tears of repentance, tears of humility, tears of servanthood, and tears of surrender. These will yield a harvest of joy and new life.

Work side by side together with Me. I am your intercessor, and you are mine on the earth.

We shall watch that which is sown sprout forth and blossom, bearing more seed for the harvest yet to come.

Do Not Discard What is Valuable in This Hour

Stephen Hanson

AC 27:13 When a gentle south wind began to blow, they thought they had obtained what they wanted; so they weighed anchor and sailed along the shore of Crete. [14] Before very long, a wind of hurricane force, called the "northeaster," swept down from the island. [15] The ship was caught by the storm and could not head into the wind; so we gave way to it and were driven along. [16] As we passed to the lee of a small island called Cauda, we were hardly able to make the lifeboat secure. [17] When the men had hoisted it aboard, they passed ropes under the ship itself to hold it together. Fearing that they would run aground on the sandbars of Syrtis, they lowered the sea anchor and let the ship be driven along. [18] We took such a violent battering from the storm that the next day they began to throw the cargo overboard. [19] On the third day, they threw the ship's tackle overboard with their own hands. [20] When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days and the storm continued raging, we finally gave up all hope of being saved.

"This message is a "continuation" of an earlier word that was given to me [five-fold archives: 1-8-2001].

"Remember that the enemy was thrown down from the wheel. Remember that a ship without a captain cannot sail properly. I have been "thrown-off" some of your ships lately. The water is deep and the winds blow."

"Nevertheless, a ship may be destroyed and not its inhabitants. My servant Paul, sailed in a ship once with a great storm. I assured him that he would come safely there. He had a mission to fulfill. Many of you have a mission to fulfill as well. The storms have blown in many directions in your lives. Be certain though, that you do not throw what is valuable overboard, though."

(The Lord showed me a ship that was sailing. I was looking at it from above and it was in a narrow channel. There were huge craggy cliffs on either side rising up next to it. Then as I continued watching the ship, my view was lowered to where I was eye level with the ship. I began to notice several of its people throwing things overboard. First there were jewels and treasure boxes that were thrown. Then cell phones and other things were cast aside into the ocean. After this, I noticed that pieces of paper were also thrown overboard into the ocean. On one of them the word "FAITH" was written down. The second one said, " HOPE" on it. I also noticed however, that "FEAR" was kept on the ship. Also the word "LOVE" was also cast aside. I then noticed these pieces of paper and watched them as they floated away from the ship. Other things were also cast aside in the form of musical instruments and even some people as well.

Then the ship began to rock back and forth. Finally it capsized and turned on its side, and began to sink. However, before it actually sank, a huge figure, the Lord, reached down and lifted up the ship in HIs hands and with a net He brought it to safe and dry land and set it upon a rock on the beach. I noticed a lighthouse that was searching to and fro across the waters. A great storm was upon the sea. The waves came in great height and force like a hurricane. Some people were actually swimming in towards the beach for safety. Other remains of broken-up pieces of ship wreaks were floating here and there on the sea. I noticed as well, that the light from the lighthouse was shining upon the waters, searching for people who were lost at sea. Some had their hands out, as they were holding onto the debris from the ships that had gone down. It was evening and the sun had just gone down, and the waters were beginning to calm down now. I saw a net that a man was climbing on. As he continued to climb, I noticed that this net was part of someone. It was the Lord Himself; the net was part of His robe. As He stood in the water, this man continued to climb up Him for safety. The Lord reached out His hands for him and others, to climb to safety.)

"Come to Me in the midst of the storm and you will find safety. The waters will rise and fall, but I have control over them. Do not discard what is valuable in this hour. You will need these things for the journey."

Let Go

Deanna Moore

It is time my people to lay down all that I have been purging from your life in this last season.

I have been revealing to you as a loving Father that which will not be needed.

For I am doing my own work in and thru you.

For some it is difficult to lay aside those things, because you have bonded to them. They were necessary then but NOT NOW, says the Father.

Have I not told you that I will speak to you and reveal my hidden manna to you. But you must First obey me on this!!!!

Will you not step in front of the situations that are occurring in your life, by the measure of faith that I have given you?

I have not come to hit the enemy that surrounds this world I have come to bring life to you and have given you the tools to walk over them, and to silence them.I already conquered death, hell, and the grave.

As Commander in Chief I AM given rank to those whom I have chosen for this final battle.

I demand obedience to my words.Many are coming now as I call them out of their training camps.

They are full of ME, and they will honor me and I will give them Victory.

This is the Final Hour, and I am the Lord thy God, I change not.Psalm 18:34 -46 He trains my hands for battle, my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You give me your shield of victory and your right hand sustains me, you stoop down to make me great.You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn. I pursued my enemies and overtook them. I did not turn back till they were destroyed.I crushed them so that they could not rise, they fell beneath my feet. You armed me with strength for battle.You made my adversaries bow at my feet. You made my enemies turn their backs in flight and I destroyed my foes.

The Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock!

"This is my word", saith the Lord," I change not".

There are many who speak my words, but they have no love, no power, no heart.

I have come to give Life and love is what I show the world.

My people will come in love , and power, and will have my heart.

LET GO now my children , I am doing what I said I would do.

Abba Father...

What Is In Your Hand?
By Holly L Moody

The Lord showed me a group of people who were holding baskets in their hands. The baskets were filled with gifts and different kinds of fruit.Each person was standing on what appeared to be a chess board. They each appeared to have a particular spot that was theirs.

I then saw the Lord approach this group of people. It was as if their eyes were blinded to His presence, for they seemed unaware that He was there.

The Lord began to reach into the baskets of these people, and began one by one to remove the gifts and the fruits in each person's basket. As the people gradually became aware that items were being removed from their basket, they began to react in different ways.

Some of the people appeared panicked, and tried to grasp their basket closer to their chest. When this would occur, the Lord would then reach out, tug the basket from the person's arms, and upend the contents of the basket onto the ground.

Other people at first resisted the Lord's efforts to remove the items from their basket. The Lord spoke softly to them. At the soft sound of His voice, these people immediately became still. Up until now they had not been aware of His presence.

They still seemed unable to see the Lord, but now appeared to be aware of the fact that what was happening to them was of the Lord. Still, even with this knowledge, many of these people were weeping as the items were removed from their basket.

When all the baskets were empty, there was a pause when it appeared that absolutely nothing was happening. The Lord stood completely still. The people began to look at each other questioningly, as if trying to figure out what was happening. Nothing appeared to be happening.

I then saw the Lord walk over to what appeared to be a door. He now had an awl in His hand.

When the Lord reached the door, He softly began to call each person over to Him. Some heard His voice calling to them; others did not. Those who heard the voice of the Lord, walked over to where the Lord was standing. The Lord told them to stand in front of the door. When they did, the Lord took the awl, and pierced the person's ear with it.

When the Lord did this, the person would jerk with pain. The Lord quietly spoke to the person, and the person would immediately calm down. It still appeared that no one could see the Lord.

When the Lord was finished piercing the ears of those who had heard His voice calling to them, the Lord walked back over to the chess board. He turned and called the people with pierced ears to come to Him.

Hesitantly, they approached the chess board. They each went back to their original place. With both hands, the Lord took two corners of the chess board and shook it. All the people were jostled from their places. Some of the people fell down. They were all confused about what was happening.

Then the Lord began to reach into the jumbled mass of people. He would pick up one person, and place them in a particular spot. Then, He would pick up another person, and place them on a particular spot. He did this until all the people were placed on the chess board, in a spot of the Lord's choosing.

The people were for the most part uncomfortable with their new and unfamiliar spots. I heard the Lord speak to them. He said, "Go and do what I have assigned you to do."

There was silence for a time. Then one person asked, "What are we to do? We don't know what is expected of us anymore. We don't know what we are supposed to be doing."

"I have taken the old from you," the Lord replied. "Your old ways of doing things, your old ministries, I have removed from you. This is a time of newness for many of you. I am placing many of you in new ministries, in new surroundings. Do not try to cling to the past. Do not hold on fiercely to your old ways, and to your old ministries. I will take them from you regardless of how tightly you hold onto them. Even those of you who appear to retain your same ministry, I will change things within it to accommodate what is to be made new. Go and do what I have assigned you to do, with what I have given unto you to accomplish this."

"How will we accomplish what You ask of us?" the same person who had spoken before now asked.

"I have supplied each of you with the tools that you will need to accomplish My will," the Lord replied.

"But we have nothing," another person said. "You have taken all from us that we once had. What is left?"

"Reach into your baskets," the Lord replied.

Each person reached into their basket and removed an item.

"I have given each of you what is in your hand," the Lord said. "Use what is already in your hand to do what I ask you to do."


After having received this vision, I asked the Lord the meaning of having pierced the people's ears. I felt led to locate in the Word places where people's ears were pierced. The passage that spoke to my heart, is Exodus 21:2-6 ~~ "(2) If thou buy a Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing. (3) If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him. (4) If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be here master's, and he shall go out by himself. (5) And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free: (6) Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him for ever."

I felt the Lord was asking that we agree to enter in to a covenant with Him of perpetually serving Him, and of living for Him. Entering into this type of covenant relationship, will leave a definite mark upon us.

As I further pondered where the Lord asks us to use what is already in our hands to accomplish His will, I was reminded of the passage of Scripture in Exodus 4 verse 2 ~~ "And the Lord said unto him (Moses), What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod."

The Lord sent Moses against Pharaoh with the rod that was already in his hand.

David fought Goliath with what was in his hand (a sling and stones). The Lord is asking us to utilize what He has already placed within our hands to accomplish His will and purpose through us. He is asking us to use what is familiar to us. Because of its familiarity, perhaps we have felt led to dismiss its effectiveness. While we may be searching for something spectacular with which to do a work for the Lord, He is simply asking us to use what we already have.

During this time of change of plans and ministries for many of us, let us attempt to see that it is the Lord's hand orchestrating the changes. Instead of resisting the changes, and opposing them, and seeking to hold on to our old plans and ministries, let's try to open our eyes to the new way and new ministries the Lord may be guiding us into.

The Lord will place us wheresoever He desires, and use us in whatsoever capacity we allow Him to. Let us bind ourselves so completely unto the Lord (even as the servant in the Old Testament who gave himself forever to his beloved master as his slave), that we will obey completely and unquestioningly whatever the Lord requests of us.
