Three Winds

Bill Burns

This morning I was awakened at 3:33 a.m., and the Lord said, "Tell My people they must discern the winds that are blowing. Two winds are presently blowing, and the third is yet to come. The names of these winds are the wind of change, the wind of adversity, and the wind of Pentecost."

I then sought the Lord for understanding about these winds, and this is what He revealed to me. The wind of change is the Lord's wind that has been blowing since January. The wind of change is a wind of purification. This wind is for the purpose of preparing God's people for the season of Pentecost. The Lord's wind is a chastening wind to remove the impurities (sin) from His people so that He can move them into the fullness of His purposes and power. This is God's wind, and we must submit to its cleansing power and allow it to remove all defilement from His temple, which temple we are.

Hebrews 12:5-8 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: "My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD, Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; For whom the LORD loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives." If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.

The Lord is in process of bringing His sons into His glory. The wind of change is for the purpose of changing His sons from glory to glory into His image. These sons are the sons of glory.

The wind of adversity is Satan's wind. This wind is one of destruction, and we are not to submit to this wind. Satan's wind has begun to blow on God's people. Satan has sent this wind as an opposing force to the wind of change. This is why the Lord said that we must discern the winds that are blowing. When we are being chastened and perfected, we have a tendency to assume that everything that is happening to us is from God. The Lord does not want us to submit to Satan's wind, He wants us to rebuke the winds of adversity. We find ourselves caught between the winds, which creates somewhat of a whirlwind, and confusion will be the result if we yield to Satan's wind. If we will ask the Lord for the gift of discernment, He will give it to us, and we will be able to discern the source of the wind. We can then either submit to God's cleansing wind or rebuke Satan's wind of destruction.

God's wind is designed to prepare us for the third wind, which will begin to blow at the season of Pentecost. Satan's wind is designed to keep us distracted from God's purpose so that we are not prepared for Pentecost. The third wind (wind of the Third Day) is coming to bring God's people into the fullness of the Spirit.

Listen now to the voice of the Master: "Awaken now, My people. Be alert and stand guard over your circumstances. The wind of the enemy is coming like a flood, but I am raising up the standard of My word to warn you. I say, rebuke the winds of adversity. Stand up and say, 'Peace! Be still!' to the destructive forces that have been sent against you. Be wise as serpents, and do not submit yourselves to their attacks. Soon the wind of change will bring you into the wind of Pentecost, and when that day fully comes, you shall hear the sound of My mighty rushing wind. It is My intention to once again bring My church into the fullness of Pentecost.

When My temple is cleansed, the wind will blow and the fire will fall and you will be filled with the fullness of My Spirit. You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. This is the third-day outpouring that shall equip this generation to do mighty exploits in the name of their God. Arise now like eagles and spread your wings and allow the wind of change to lift you above the wind of adversity. The wind of change will bring you forth to your destination, and then my eagles shall ride upon the wind of My power. You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this, says the Lord of Hosts." (Malachi 4:3)

Let go...

Armando Morales

My children,

Will you let go of the burdens that have weighed you down for so long? How much longer will you keep struggling to keep these burdens under your control, trying to overcome them through your methods. Today is the day that I'm calling you to LET GO! Let go and let my peace rule your heart.

Do not figure out your afflictions, trials, or character issues, but seek Me, seek my Kingdom, seek my righteousness, and everything else about you I will shape and perfect. Know that I am the Potter and you are the clay...My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts are higher than your thoughts.

My calling for you is to trust in me and not figure out where I'm taking you..will you follow me...will you take my hand...will you trade your heavy heart for my joy?

I'm waiting to pour out my love to you the moment you ask. I'm waiting to be found the moment you seek. I'm waiting to dine with you the moment you invite me. Will you let go of these burdens my child and let me rule and establish you on My rock..from which you can not be shaken? My urgency for you to let go is today..will you entrust me with your cares?

Let is the day you need to let go...

humbly sumbitted,

Walk with Me in the Newness of This New Day...
Resurrection in The Kingdom

Shelleymae Bartlett

Recently the Lord gave me 3 pictures and a Word for the body.
I think it is a True Reflection of where HE has brought me and where and what HE has PROMISED me/us will come to Fruition.

(1st picture)
Coming out of the ugliness
Like a cocoon ... and yet not.
What I saw was a shell of an old bug. A skeleton shell if you will ... of the old flesh. The bug had been metamorphased/transformed like a butterfly and yet not... It were more like life in "the flesh" verses life in "The Spirit."

Rise up
Rise up out of thyself.
Rise up out of thy circumstances of your carnal thinking.
Rise up with ME in the Land of the Living.
Rise up in the SPIRIT with ME.

Walk in the New.
In the newness of your mind The Mind of Christ.
Let the old pass away.
Loose sight of the shore of your own understanding
and let ME renew your thoughts with MY THOUGHTS says The LORD.

MY WAYS cannot be comprehended in your own understanding.
MY WAYS cannot be walked out in the flesh of your own doings.

Come up and walk with ME in the Newness of this NEW DAY.
Separate yourself with your will that you will serve ME and ME Alone THIS DAY
That I Alone will be the sole KING that is Enthroned upon your Heart.

I The LORD try the reigns to see where you will go and what you will say.

It is either "MY WILL" or "your will" that will be done.
Or "MY KINGDOM " or "your kingdom" that will be ... within the hearts of men.
Choose THIS DAY whom you will serve

Oh choose ME that you might Live
For great is the fear for those who dwell outside of ME
For therein is darkness and In the darkness there is death.
Oh that thou would choose ME
To walk in the LIGHT
For in ME is Great MERCY
In, ME is Great LOVE.
And it is In The TRUTH of MY LOVE
that you can Rise Up In The LIGHT of MY LOVE
in The SPIRIT In The Land of The Living.

(2nd picture)
I saw a beautiful apple tree in full bloom.
The sweet smell was breath taking.
(and oh to have orchards full of them ! {:o) )
The Lord showed me that this was like Salvation.
How beautiful indeed!
But JESUS wants more.
He wants to be LORD of our lives.
He wants to be KING!
But in order for this to happen
The flower must wither and fall to the ground for the FRUIT to come forth.

It is more then SAVIOR.
It is HIM being LORD.

(The 3rd picture)
I saw a tree but it wasn't just a tree, it was very fruitful and planted by the Waters in a very beautiful fruitful Garden.

I felt the Lord show me that Every Word that we have planted in our lives will come to Fruition! Up and beyond our highest expectation!!!

Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to naught: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2: 6-16)

It is in Walking In the SPIRIT that we all can become ONE In HIM.
Let us lay aside the weight that can so easly betset us and press on in and for Him that we may know Him and the Awesome Power of His Resurrection!!!

Humbly submitted In Him,
(\O/)o Shelleymae Bartlett

Count Down Begins:

My children I have not forgotten my promises to You!
I am the Lord and all my promises are yeah and amen.

But you have planned it all out and I have not listened to your ways
I am waiting for you to have "quiet" confidence in me!

Allowing me to continue to cut off that which I will not use.

For some these pressures seem almost unbearable and have extended way past your human understanding.
The repetitiveness of it causes confusion and you wonder if I had spoken at all.
Hebrew 13:5 I will never fail you, I will never forsake you.
But my child I am here and will not allow you to be carried away by this pain.
You know it to be the last days, and again I say to you my children, trust in me with all your heart, do not lean unto your own understanding.
All your ways acknowledge me and "I WILL" direct your path.
I have a plan says the Lord, and it will come to pass~~~~

If you will but just began to taste my words that I speak to you, just taste and see that I am good. In quiet confidence, I say. The countdown has begun, and I am counting. Listen with quietness of heart, Do not be shaken by the fears of man. It is I who have control and I am that ROCK who protects you and will lay out the pieces to the puzzle in your mind. Only allow me without regrets, to prepare you. Your life has not be in vain, for I the LORD know all things and you are the apple of my eye. Your tender loving Father.

Just Wait on God

A. W. Tozer

But the Lord is in His holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him. --Habakkuk 2:20

I think we are the busiest bunch of eager beavers ever seen in the religious world. The idea seems to be that if we are not running in a circle, breathing down the back of our own neck, we are not pleasing God!

When Jesus said, "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15 KJV), Peter probably leaped to his feet and, no doubt, scooped up his hat on the way out. He was going to go right then!

But the Lord said, "Peter, come back, and 'stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high' (Luke 24:49)."

I heard a Christian leader warn recently that we are suffering from a rash of amateurism in Christian circles. Christianity has leveled down and down and down. We are as light as butterflies-- though we flit, flit, flit around in the sunshine and imagine that we are eagles flapping our broad wings.

Sometimes I think the Church would be better off if we would call a moratorium on activity for about six weeks and just wait on God to see what He is waiting to do for us. That's what they did before Pentecost. The Counselor, 95.

"Lord, this morning I'll stop for a while at least to 'just wait on God.' I know You're wanting to work, and I for one am willing to wait this morning to hear Your voice and discover what You want to do for me today. Amen."

Religious Divination (Python in the Pulpit?)

by Doug Fortune

"Who has BEWITCHED you?"(Gal.3:1) Normally we don't think of witchcraft being in the Church or believers being bewitched; this seems like some pretty strong language for Paul to use. Images of a haggard old woman hovering over a boiling black kettle of frog gizzards and 'eye of newt' spring to mind (maybe I watched too much television as a kid!). Is this really what Paul is speaking of though? A look at the context of this verse will perhaps shed some light on the subject.

Often missed, I believe that Gal. 1:10-12 sets a good stage; "For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? or am I striving to please men? if I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ. For I make known to you, brethren, as touching the gospel which was preached by me, that it is NOT after man. For neither did I receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came to me through REVELATION of Jesus Christ." He didn't receive his ministry from man and he wasn't endorsed by man. Then verses 15-17 reveal God's primary purpose; "But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, To REVEAL His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the heathen; immediately I conferred NOT with flesh and blood: Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me..." Did you catch that?... Paul was chosen before he was born, before he had any obedience or works; he was chosen for the purpose of REVEALING Christ to the nations. The following verses go on to reiterate how his ministry was not a product of, nor endorsed by man.

On into chapter two, we see that he was eventually accepted by the 'established church' (Gal. 2:9). He was still no man-pleaser though, for we find him confronting the elder apostle Peter; "But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed."(Gal 2:11) In most circles today, had Paul done that, his credentials would have been pulled and he would have received the left foot of dis-fellowship! In verse 19-20, he makes plain the foundation and source of his spiritual authority: "For I through the law am DEAD to the law, that I might live unto God. I am CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth IN ME: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me." Remember also that he declares he was chosen before his birth as the source of his authority. In other words, it is Christ living THROUGH him that he receives his authority from. It is against this backdrop of authority conferred by God versus authority appointed by man, that he says "Who has BEWITCHED you?"

In verses 2-3 of Galatians 1, he goes on to describe this 'witchcraft'; "Did you receive the Holy Spirit as the result of obeying the law and doing its' works, or was it by hearing the message of the Gospel and believing it?- Was it from observing a law of rituals or from a message of faith? Are you so foolish and so senseless and so silly? Having begun your new life spiritually with the Holy spirit, are you now reaching perfection by dependence on the flesh?"(Amplified Bible) You see, often those who have man-made and man-appointed authority will preach a sin-conscious gospel of works and obedience. In reality that is an oxymoron, for the true Gospel is neither sin-conscious nor works-oriented! If you can get people feeling bad enough about themselves, it's easier to get them to go along with YOUR 'program'... it's an issue of CONTROL. Guilt is very good for the religion business! The true issue is manipulation and control- or RELIGIOUS DIVINATION.

In the occult, divination is casting spells and word-curses under the GUISE of revealing secrets and foretelling the future. This is basically what sin-conscious, works-oriented preaching does to the unsuspecting believer in the pew! It focuses on revealing your sin (which, by the way, God says He FORGETS! Is.43:25, Jere.31:34, Heb.8:12) and casts a word-curse (spell) on you so you'll conform, and by conforming to the religious standard, it affects your destiny- a self-fulfilling prophecy of sorts. The root of this divination and man-appointed authority is a RELIGIOUS spirit, which is antichrist. Remember, antichrist means instead-of or a substitute for Christ - the anointing. Some have started out with a true anointing of God on their life, but because they sought the approval of man, they end up with only a man-appointed authority.

In Acts 16 we read of a young woman possessed by a spirit of divination; "And it came to pass, as we were going to the place of prayer, that a certain maid having a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much gain by soothsaying. The same following after Paul and us cried out, saying, These men are servants of the Most High God..."(Acts 16:16-17). I believe this account gives us a prophetic picture worth exploring. First, if you look in the Greek we notice that she is a girl, not a mature woman; that she is in bondage as a slave; that she is bringing her masters much gain. The Church is usually referred to in the female gender. Here, I believe, is a prophetic picture of the immature Church, operating under bondage to religious laws, bringing her pastors... oops, I meant masters much gain. Notice that she is following Paul and those with him, proclaiming loudly, "These men are servants of the Most High God!". At first glance you would think, What's wrong with that? In fact there are some leaders today operating under an authority appointed by man, who surround themselves with immature believers who will put them on a pedestal and proclaim them to be 'servants of the Most High God'. By doing this it helps to make up for their lack of anointing due to man-appointed authority, and helps to draw more people to follow them. Have you ever seen a leader allow people to put them on a pedestal, and to take credit for things they were not even responsible for? Paul said, " I striving to please men? if I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ."(Gal.1:10). Paul recognized it for what it was, as the girl was drawing attention to himself and his companions. Paul cast that spirit of divination out of her!

It is interesting to note that the word translated as divination is PYTHON in Greek. A man named Pythagoras was an early Greek philosopher who founded a society of pagan religious orientation known as Pythagoreanism. The society fostered strong bonds of friendship and a sense of ELITISM among its members through ritual and a code of rigorous self-control, including lists of taboos. This ancient spirit is alive and well today. This description of Pythegoreanism could easily be a description of many churches under man-appointed authority - cliquish groups, elitism, ritual (believe me, there IS charismatic/ pentecostal ritual) codes and taboos. All these elements appeal to the approval of man as they stem from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

It is also interesting to note that the python snake does not poison its victims, rather it wraps its coils around and slowly squeezes the life out of its victim. Most man appointed leaders and churches are not necessarily involved in poisoning through blatant doctrinal error (although some are), rather they just squeeze the life out of the believers through the oppression of sin-consciousness and works-oriented mentality. Perhaps you've seen another fairly common scenario: a Church experiences a powerful move of the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is LIBERTY... it is difficult to please men and maintain control where there is much liberty... also when people come into liberty they begin to be released into their giftings and callings... this is very threatening to intimidated man-appointed leaders... so we begin to limit the flow of the Spirit... I think you know the rest of the story.

Let us be like Paul, receiving our authority from God rather than man. Let us understand that our authority is based solely on our death in Christ, and His subsequent Resurrection Life flowing through us. Let us quit seeking the approval of men and allow the abiding anointing to flow out of us; "And as for you, the anointing which ye received of Him ABIDETH IN YOU, and ye need not that any one teach you; but as His anointing teacheth you; concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, ye ABIDE IN HIM."(1 John 2:27) Right now, call upon that abiding anointing the leads you into truth and ask the Lord if you have been bewitched by sin-conscious, works-oriented preaching. If so, be like Paul and cast out that spirit of divination, that python that seeks to squeeze the Life out of you. Move forward "...into the glorious LIBERTY of the children of God."(Rom.8:21)
