I AM a God Who Delivers

Olivia Reitz

Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks] for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus. I Thes 5:18

The Lord, your God is with you, He is mighty to save, He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zeph 3:17

To My children in the wilderness, I have said I would deliver you from the fire, for My purpose for you will be fulfilled, in My way and in My time. But you say, "I am in a real mess." My Beloved, I did not save you to leave you in a mess, but to be about your Father's business. Right now, you are going through frustration, worry, fear and confusion. Stress is a real factor in your life, it is "a given" - for I have a great work for you to be doing for Me, and Satan is 'not' going to roll over and overlook that, he is going to put up a fight. The adversary is pouring it on you, prowling "as" a roaring lion, but his roar is really pathetic next to the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.

When the enemy roars, it is to cause fear in the prey. He wants you to know that you are being hunted. He is a predator, and he desires to kill you. My children, do not be ignorant of either his nature or his schemes, for if you are, you are as a sitting duck for his attacks. Do not be deceived, he is very real and at work in this world. He has many faces, some even appearing very lovely and good, but still designed to deceive and defeat you. As Abram made a sacrifice, it was a confirming ceremony, My covenant with Abram. But he also had to drive off the vultures who sought to destroy the sacrifice. My chosen ones, you also made a sacrifice and received My covenant promises. Satan will do everything he can to defile our covenant together, to try to disrupt, divert and tear it apart. You must be alert, watching for if you fail to recognize his activity and his distractions, it will consume both your thoughts and your time away from me. You must drive the vultures away!

I have said "to take heed, lest you fall". If one who was so close to Me gave way to pride and fall into sin, so can you. He was Lucifer 'the shining one' ... but as 'the shining one' he got his eyes off Me, the I AM, who is the very source of "brilliance" and instead of giving Me praise, he became proud and boastful. My Beloved, he is bent on destruction and causing you pain. He is the accuser of the brethren, bringing condemning accusations against you. He wants to malign Me and My plan and to steal your destiny. He seeks to take even one of you - to bring bitterness, jealousy and pride against your brethren. He is deception personified, but you can be very certain that he will be answerable to Me!

So, here you are, in the wilderness - filled with stress. You have been under extreme pressure. My loved ones, people are watching you, both believers and unbelievers, watching how you react under this pressure - what you do or say when the going has gotten rough, and there seems to be no way out. You say that I AM the answer. So, are you drawing them toward you and Me, or away? At the most trying time of your life, what are you saying? For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. At this time, when everything is pressing in, some under extreme adversity, what do you say? Do they see that you have every confidence that your God will work it out for your good? Do they see that you have faith in your God?

You want a miracle? Praise Me IN the midst of ALL situations. That's where miracles begin. No ... I have not guaranteed to you a stress-free life, BUT, I have given you A GOD WHO DELIVERS. I AM your overcoming power for stress. I brought over two million of My people out of Egyptian bondage across the Red Sea. I provided food and water for them in the wilderness, clothing and shoes that would not wear out and gave them the land the enemy held. Do you think that I cannot do the same for you? I AM bringing forth My Remnant. But you must be a holy remnant, one dead to the world and Satan's schemes. A remnant of 'overcomers', overcoming Satan's world system. Jesus Christ is your faith and faith brings the victory. Claim your victory, by faith. I have given you My Holy Spirit for strength and victory. I have given you My Word and I have given you My commitment, for I AM a faithful God.

The Lion of the Tribe of Judah is rising to His feet and He is setting out a Roar - a roar to summon HIS 'bold ones' to come forth, mighty as HIS lions, for the night is far spent. At one time, timid as kittens, but now you shall rise as "MY LIONS", Regal in appearance, bold in your God and bold in your walk. I am raising up a people with the power and strength of a lion. Yes, you shall have a mighty roar but you will have "power under control." My lions also shall be predators, seeking out the prey, exercising judgment and justice, having authority over the enemy and all his followers.

You say, "But Lord, I am still in the wilderness, and I am surrounded by troubles, how can I make it"? Haven't I said that My grace is sufficient? Haven't I said that I can make even the wilderness bloom? Be still, My Glorious Beloved, feel My love, for I am singing over you. Remember, My Beloved, I AM A GOD WHO DELIVERS.

Breaking Forth

Sis. Ching Co

Unlike in the past years, where the words and messages that I received can be long and lenghty. This year, while listening to Him, He gave me a two words prophetic message. And the words was BREAKING FORTH.

My first reaction has been to exclaimed " Wow" and I began conjuring images of miracles, signs, abundant financial blessings, healings as I was trying to grasp in what manner and way the "breaking fortth" of God will be made manifest in my life, my family, my community and around the nations.

Yesterday, I felt the Lord gently correcting me and this is what I got. As always, please test them accordingly.


"My child, when I break forth and I am breaking forth in your midst. You must be careful not to stereotype me and put a pattern to the flow of My Spirit. For there will be no regular and fix pattern and you cannot put a tag on my actions and movements.

"But remember this. It does not matter what form and pattern it will take. But the reality will remained the same. I AM BREAKING FORTH IN YOUR MIDST.

"There will be seasons where miracles, signs and wonders will abound, but there will also be seasons of storms and droughts. There will be mountaintop experience, but there will also be walks through the valley. There will be times of rejoicing, but there will also be times of mourning. There will be moments of great prosperity and abundant blessings, but there will also be times of shortage and season of great stretching of faith. There will be days when you will walk and sit with kings and queens, but there will also be days when you will be seated inside prison floors.

"All these will come at different times, different places. But no matter what comes and what will take place in your midst I AM BREAKING FORTH AND MY GLORY WILL BE SEEN ."


Our biggest enemy will be when we began to measure ourselves against others. When we bagan to set our sight on other people's field and start to compare and wonder why God is not doing to us what He is doing to others. When we start to do that, we will be in danger of being deceived.

We must realize that GOD HAS SET HIS EYES UPON US AT ALL TIMES. And He alone knows the best place and path for us and He will chart our path according to His wisdom and sovereignty. Each path will be different and unique but the truth remains the same. HE IS AT WORK IN EACH OF OUR LIVES TO BRING HIS PLANS AND PURPOSES TO COMPLETION.


May Paul's words expressed to the Philippians become the expression of our hearts as we seek to follow our Master wherever He will be leading us this year and the years to come.

" . . . . for I have learned how to be content (satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or disquieted) in whatever state I am. I know how to be abased and live humbly in straitened circumstances, and I know how to enjoy plenty and live in abundance. I have learned in any and all circumstances the secret of facing very situation, whether well-fed or going hungry, having a sufficiency and enough to spare or going without and being in want.

"I have strength for all things in Christ who empowers me [ I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses, inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ sufficiency]."


"Father, make us all to be like Paul as we continue to walk with You and grow in You. Amen!"

Blessings to you all,

By My Spirit, Saith the Lord

Bill Burns

Verily, verily, I say unto you that it shall no longer be by the plans of man, by the might of man, or the power of man. But, it shall from this day forth be by My Spirit, saith the Lord God. Is it not written that I am bringing many sons to glory? Those sons that I am calling even in this moment, those who have been seeking Me, those who have been yearning for more than just normal church are about to be drawn by My Spirit into the glorious light of revelation knowledge. I Myself will become your Teacher; I Myself will become your Counselor and your Guide. I will lead you by My Spirit into those places that I have taken dominion over, and by the presence of your authority and My anointing upon you, those kingdoms that are in this world shall become a position of dominion in My kingdom. For, I am sending you as sons of glory to establish points of authority in this land that I Myself shall inhabit, and the enemy shall flee even as the flood gates are open.

Delay is not Denial

Jim Wies

The word of the Lord to His children is "Delay is not denial". "For though, according to your chronology of things, you would be inclined to think that the delay is due to a fault of Mine, or that My words to you were not true, or that My promises and not trustworthy;" this is what the Lord says, "you must know that My chronology is not the same as yours, and that what appears to be delay in your mind, is a timing that is in MY hands, and in accordance with My intention to do you good. For my promise is sure, My word is steadfast, and My intention to do you good is also quite well matched with My power to work all things together for your good."

"So during this time of waiting, be not dismayed, don't give in to disillusionment, and do not discard your faith; by which you stand to gain great reward. Remain trusting, remain yielded, remain plyable in My hands, and wait upon me with expectation; for surely, delay does not mean a denial of the good things I have promised and intend for my children."

Apostolic Arrogance

Pam Clark

I am not the perfect saint or minister by a long shot, and I certainly don't live in a pristeen ivory towered world. Like the rest of you, I have had to struggle for my faith and I know some who have struggled more than me, God help and bless them.

But it's those who will acknowledge the struggle that I can relate to. Jesus didn't glorify the Cross - He endured the Cross - despising the shame of it, and He did that for me, so I could be free. Does that get me out of the trials of this life? NO! I wish it did. But it does help me avoid some things and it does give me the path of life, for myself and for others. We are called to go and tell.

When people say they are going to "set things in order," I look at the spirit of it. Is it His Spirit? Do I have to qualify before they can love me? Now people will have differences of opinions, but how do they rate other people that are not like them, especially those who are weaker or who have a different ministry? Do they still have value and the dignity of life - that God the gave them?

Satan is a self exalted leader. He decided he wanted to be God. He decided he was going to order things and uses cruel and bullying tactics to make it happen. I would be overcome except for the greater One who lives within me.

And while I may be fooled or bullied for a season, I know the Voice of my Shepherd and His path will lead me away from the devourer.

The upcoming apostolic leadership will have the Voice of Love. Love and Life rules the Universe. Love overcomes. Love can destroy and raise up again. But that which does not submit to God will not be raised up. People will have problems to work out, but when Jesus calls, His people will answer. And the order will not be that difficult - because He has a way that works! For everyone!

Yes, there is discipline, but it is a discipline where the Love is understood and prevails.

Prophets Be On Guard

Marsha Burns

I issue a warning to My prophets to be on guard against the temptation to prophesy out of your own spirit. Refuse to allow your own desire to be known and recognized to interfere with the strength of My will and purposes to speak to My people. I have a pure message that needs to be released into the earth today, but it has been tainted by your own earthly agendas and issues of life. I call you to move into that place of being wholly given to Me, not moved by your own wishes or desires or by your own intellectual understanding. Quiet your soul, and do not allow My word to be contaminated by that which is finite. I am an infinite God, and My thoughts are higher than your thoughts. My word must come forth in purity.
