The Coming Revolution

Fredrick Weikert

As I was meditating on the Word, the Lord directed me to the following verses:

The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley and it was full of bones. Then He caused me to pass by them all around and indeed they were dry and He said to me, 'Son of Man can these bones live?'

Again He said to me, `Son of Man can these bones live?’ So I answered Him, `O Lord God, only you know.’ Again He said to me, `Prophesy to these bones and say to them, “O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God to these bones surly I will cause breath to enter into you and you shall live.’” (Ezekiel 37:1-5)

The Lord began to speak to me saying, “Multitudes are and have been waiting in the valley of decision. Yet few will go to the valley. So the multitudes have become as dry bones. They have been consumed by spiritual hunger and have wasted away. And many of the harvesters I have called have sat upon hill tops in their religious robes pondering those who are in the valley of decision.

“These were harvesters whom I, the Lord, have called. I struck their hearts with a consuming fire to go into the fields and bring in My harvest. But the enemy came upon them and brought the traditions of men into their lives.

“Obedience to their traditions became more important than the fire which burned within their chest. The more they embraced the traditions of men, the more the fire I built within them smoldered, until their traditions held them captive to the hilltops.

“Deep within them is the call which I, the Lord, imparted to them. The desire to move in the rivers of Finney, Edwards, Spurgeon, Booth, Wesley and other great harvesters who brought in an over abundance of fruit from the harvest fields in the past, is stirring deep within them.

“They have watched as others have been set free, and with brave hearts descended the hilltops into the harvest fields. The cry of the Father’s heart is still, `Pray the Lord of the harvest will send more workers,” and it continually echos over the valleys and hilltops.

“Under the robes of religion they wear is an ember that burns within their hearts. It is the desire for souls. No matter how they try to rationalize their present condition, the searing of their hearts by this ember has become like a thorn in their flesh.”

Then I heard a word reverberate throughout the heavens. The word was, “Revolution!” The Lord spoke to me again and said, “Listen. I hear the cadence of many footsteps as they echo throughout the nations. This is the army I am about to loose. As I, the Lord, instructed Ezekiel to prophesy to the dry bones while I was about to breathe life into them, so now too I am about to blow My breath upon the embers which reside in the hearts of My called ones who have been smothered for so long.

“No longer will these harvesters who have been bound by traditions sit upon the hilltops. But, I will cause the ember to burn with flames of passion for the lost once again, as it did when I first touched their hearts. This army will not hesitate. They will rush full force into the fields and begin the harvest.

“Their tools will be love, compassion and the fulfilling of needs. No longer will they pass by the fields and say, ‘Be warm and be filled.’ But this will be an army who will clothe the naked, feed the hungry and heal the sick. The words of the Gospel shall be followed by the works of the Gospel. As I breath into them, they shall impart My breath into those who roam the valley of decision and life will spring forth

from the valley. “They shall overcome the adversary, who bound them on the hilltops while he brought a blight upon the nations, with the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony. As they walk into the nations, they will see many set free from the bondage of Hell.

“ As these people are set free, they will join in and become part of the army of harvesters. Position will no longer be a concern, but the salvation of the one soul who is in their midst will be their only

priority.” Fredrick Weikert

Go Forth To Battle and To Triumph

Stephen Hanson

ISA 37:32 For out of Jerusalem will come a remnant, and out of Mount Zion a band of survivors. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.

MIC 5:7 The remnant of Jacob will be in the midst of many people like dew from the LORD, like showers on the grass, which do not wait for man or linger for mankind.

"Out of the ashes I have a people who will be mine. They have not given themselves to the spirit of this world. They have not "risen" by their own hands. They have let Me work on them. They have decided to follow Me all the way. These are mine. These are the people of my pasture. These are my remnant. These are the people who have not bowed to anyone else. They will pass through many waters. They will emerge through many fires. They are my army. They have been equipped for these last days. They are my people and they have been chosen to raise my standard. They are not interested in programs but they are interested in serving Me."

"There has always been a remnant that I have chosen to represent Me. When you follow Me to the ends of this world and life then you are that remnant. When you allow Me to work on you than you are that remnant. When you follow my Spirit and not your own then you are that remnant. Follow Me and I will not only make you fishers of men but I will give you the keys to the kingdom. I will give you the hidden manna. I will give you the white stone. I will give you the "Bright and Morning Star." Be mine and I will be yours as well. I will protect you from the storms that are coming. I will lead you beside the still waters. I will give you the gifts that are mine. I will cause you to triumph in every battle."

"Great will be your reward if you follow Me in all your ways. Great will be your fellowship for I will give you a foretaste of heaven. Great may be your trials but even greater will be your relationship with Me. Sun and moon will not harm you. Neither will the things of this world. The arrows that fly by day or the terror in the night will not come near your tent. For you are mine, says the Lord. You are mine, says the Lord. You are mine, I say. Rise up, I say, rise up! Rise up in the strength of old. Rise up in the strength of Joshua and Caleb. Put on the strength of Miriam and Deborah. Rise up as in days of old. For you are mine, and I will give you those things that you have asked for. Mighty feats will be done in my name. A new Spirit will be poured out, even greater than as in days of old. Put on that arm of mine, says the Lord. Then your strength will be that as the armies of heaven."

"Go forth to battle and to triumph, says the Lord."

Tabernacle Of David

Government in Zion......

David established his rulership out of Jerusalem, a city on the top of Mount Zion.The Scriptures refer to Mount Zion and the city of Jerusalem as a picture of the government of God. Psalms 2:6 prophetically decreed in reference to Jesus: "Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion." The picture is carried forward in Isaiah's prophesy to show the eventual, total dominion of the Kingdom of God over all other kingdoms and dominions.

"Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. Many people shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; he will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem." (Isa 2:2-3)

We know this is a direct reference to the Kingdom of God and His agency, the church, through what is stated in Hebrews 12:22-24. "But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, ..." We, the church, are that city according to Matthew 5:14 which states; "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden."

The Scepter of Righteousness In the previous section we looked at the fact that His throne is established in mercy; yet it is also extended in righteousness. "Your Throne, Oh God, is forever and ever; a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. You love righteousness and hate wickedness;" (Ps. 45:6,7a)

A scepter is an ornate rod or wand that serves as an emblem of regal or imperial power and authority in the hand of a ruler. The scepter in the king's hand represents his authority and dominion. We are told in the above Scripture that God's scepter is described as a scepter of righteousness. That is, His authority is righteousness; or it could be said the authority of righteousness is the authority of His Kingdom. So the extension of His rule is the extension of His righteousness. In fact, His Kingdom is described as a Kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy, in the Holy Spirit. (Rom. 14:17) Add that to the fact that God wants to extend HIS rule and HIS dominion through His people and we see that it is through righteousness that we have dominion. Therefore, as we reflect His righteousness, we express His dominion. Put more simply, our level of righteousness determines our level of dominion. It is through righteousness that we have rule in life.

Of course, we must first understand we are not talking about the righteousness by which we are saved. That is an imputed righteousness given us as a gift and received by faith. There is, however, a righteousness manifested, when we walk out the righteousness that has been provided for us. God desires for us to not only receive a "positional righteousness", (i.e.. right standing in His eyes) but a practical experience of BEING righteous. It is this latter righteousness that determines our level of rule and dominion in life. It is the righteousness that comes as we choose to walk in the empowering grace He has provided. It is our destiny and purpose to be extensions of God's rule in the earth. Ephesians 1:22,23 tells us that we are to be His body, the fullness of Him whole fills all in all. He wants to restore to us the dominion betrayed to the devil at the fall of man and grant us to reign in life in Christ Jesus. We are meant to be extensions of His righteous rule. We are called to advance His Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is simply the domain of the King and it has come wherever Jesus is ruling.

(To talk about government and authority, however, I must at this point clarify I am not attempting to define a natural form of church government but rather the characteristics of it. What is important to understand is that true apostolic government is expressed through the authority of God in the realm of the Spirit. While the emergence of true spiritual authority will have a profound effect on the way church government operates, the primary point to be made here is that a truly apostolic church is a church that understands the place it has to express dominion over darkness.)

His kingdom (of which the "house" of David, is a pattern) is established in mercy and extended in righteousness. "So, may Your Kingdom come and may Your will be done, oh Lord, on earth as it is in heaven."

Healing and Restoration

Hollie Moody

For months now, I have been feeling a grieving in my spirit. I sensed that this was a grieving in the heart of Jesus Himself. Immediately upon my discerning this, I had a vision where certain saints who were sitting in a church service changed into sheep. These sheep appeared fine when I first saw them. Then, it was as if I were able to gaze straight inside of them. At first, I recoiled at what I was seeing.

I saw hidden wounds.

Some of these wounds had developed layers of scar tissue over them, but beneath the scar tissue the wounds were still open and fresh. Some of the wounds were in the process of being healed. Other wounds were infected.

I drew back from witnessing this vision. I sensed tremendous pain and weariness, discouragement and despair, within the wounded hearts of these people. The pain I was sensing was breaking my heart.

I ran from this vision for a time; not wanting to experience it any further. The Lord waited until I came to Him and repented of drawing back from this vision. The vision continued.

I saw the people in a church service, who had changed into sheep with hidden wounds, begin to cry out. Their cries were annoying to others in the congregation. The people I saw as sheep were a frustration to the rest of the congregation. These wounded sheep were disruptive. At times, their cries and their behaviour appeared almost bizarre.

These wounded sheep began to withdraw themselves, or were separated by others in the congregation. When this occurred, their behaviour became even more disruptive, frustrating, annoying, and confusing.

The cries of the wounded sheep didn't appear to be heard by many in the congregation. Those in the congregation who did hear the cries either felt unable to offer help, or were angry and annoyed by the cries. The wounded sheep began to withdraw themselves even more, and began to wander away from the congregation.

I watched as these wounded sheep left the congregation and left the church building they had been in. I became aware that the Lord was standing beside me. I looked up at Him, and saw a terrible grief and sadness in His eyes. I also saw anger.

"Come with Me, daughter," the Lord said to me.

Together, the Lord and I began to follow the sheep. They appeared to be traveling upon some type of hard packed dusty road or path. They continued to cry out, and appeared lost and confused. Their cries began to intensify. I saw as they would stop to eat at weeds growing next to the road, and I realized that their cries had intensified because they were hungry.

The weeds didn't appear to satisfy the hunger of the wandering sheep. They continued to travel down the hard packed road, crying out, and attempting to eat anything that was growing at the edges of the road.

Some of the sheep began to fall at the side of the road. Their cries became weaker and weaker until they were only lying quietly on the side of the road. I saw that these sheep had become completely overcome by their hunger and their weariness. They were totally unresponsive.

"Come with Me, My daughter," the Lord said to me. I had come to a halt next to the fallen sheep.

Quietly, the Lord and I proceeded to follow the wounded sheep. I saw as they quickly left the side of the road. I looked to see where they were running to. I saw a pasture.

The pasture at first glance appeared fertile and lush, but when the Lord and I drew closer, I saw that it was a fouled pasture. The grass was slimy and trampled down, and it smelled. Yet the wounded sheep were eating this grass ravenously. Their cries stopped as they tore at the grass and continued to eat it.

After a time, though, the sheep began to cry out. I sensed that these cries were cries of pain. Many of the sheep began to vomit up the rotted grass they had just been feasting upon. After they had finished vomiting, they simply fell down in this pasture.

After they had fallen down, I saw as wolves and other predators began to steal stealthily into the pasture. They came upon the fallen, wounded sheep and began to devour them.

"My daughter," the Lord said to me, "have you understood what you have seen?"

"Yes," I replied. I felt a sickness and despair within my heart at having witnessed this vision.

"There are many of My children who sit on the pews of their congregations with hidden wounds," the Lord said to me. "They are not healed of their wounds. They have concealed their wounds. Their unhealed wounds are separating them from the flock. At times, they separate themselves. Other times, they are separated from the rest of the flock by the flock's confusion, anger, and frustration towards the behaviour of these wounded sheep.

"They have eaten strange words and perverse doctrines to satiate their hunger," the Lord continued. "At first, these words and doctrines satisfied the terrible gnawing hunger these wounded sheep were experiencing. Yet, it was strange doctrines, and words not from Me; and they spewed-up these words and doctrines. As they were overcome by their hunger and weariness, they became easy prey for predators.

"Behold, My daughter," the Lord directed me. "The vision is not ended."

I then saw as the Lord Himself approached the foul pasture and entered it. He began to tend to each of the fallen, wounded sheep. I watched as He gently ran His hands over each sheep, and spoke quietly and soothingly to the sheep.

The Lord then began to leave this fouled pasture. He was calling each of the sheep by name, and urging them gently to come and follow Him. Some of the sheep struggled to their feet and began to follow the Lord. Some of the sheep continued to remain upon the ground.

"Come with Me, My daughter," the Lord said to me.

I began to follow the Lord as He led the sheep from the fouled pasture. I felt a soft, cool breeze upon my face, and smelled the clean, fresh scent of grass. I looked further ahead, and saw another pasture.

The Lord made His way to this new pasture, and led the sheep into it. I followed close behind. I saw that this pasture was a good pasture. It was clean, and rich with lush grass. There was a bubbling stream through this pasture.

When the sheep first entered this new pasture, they did so hesitantly. The Lord laughed softly, and gently urged the sheep further into the pasture. I saw as the sheep began to graze quietly upon the lush grass, or drink from the stream of water.

"Behold, My daughter," the Lord said to me.

I turned and looked at where the Lord was pointing. I was perplexed to see that some of the sheep were backing away from this new pasture, and were refusing to enter into it. Some of them returned to the foul pasture. Others, simply continued to wander and to fall at the edge of the road. All of those who refused to enter into the new pasture, were eventually devoured by predators.

"Do you understand all you have seen, daughter?" the Lord asked me.

"No," I replied. I couldn't understand why some of the sheep had refused to enter into the new pasture.

"I am the Good Shepherd," the Lord said unto me. "I will search and seek out those of My sheep who have wandered away from the flock. I will heal them, and lead them to green pastures and fresh water. Yet there are some who are so fearful that they will refuse to allow themselves to be healed, or to believe that I am with them."

"Why is that?" I asked the Lord.

"Desire," the Lord replied.

"Desire?" I repeated. "I don't understand what You mean."

"Those of My children who refuse to be healed and to enter into the pasture where I lead them," the Lord explained, "do so because their desire has died. They have become consumed and overcome with their woundings."

I pondered the Lord's words for a moment. "How do those whose desire has died, get their desire restored?"

"They must return unto Me with all their heart and soul," the Lord said. "They must stop looking at everything around them, and focus only upon Me. It will take time for these sheep, but with patience and compassion, they can be restored once again."

"I have a question, Lord," I said. "Why were those who were wounded not healed in Your house?"

"Many reasons," the Lord replied. "For some of these sheep, they had no idea how to be healed. Their wounds had become their whole life and focus. Others were not healed, for they needed the congregation to help to heal and restore them. Yet, too often, the congregation also had no idea how to help to bring the wounded in their midst to full healing and restoration. Their own feelings of inadequacy and helplessness caused many of them to turn with anger upon those who were wounded. This anger only caused new wounds for a sheep that was already wounded; which caused further separation of the wounded sheep.

"This is a day and a time," the Lord continued, "in which I will pour out My healing upon My children. A wounded people cannot reap the harvest which is white to be harvested. A wounded people cannot heal. Only those who have been healed, or are in the process of allowing themselves to be healed, can heal others, and touch others with My saving grace."

"Is this vision a rebuke to shepherds?" I asked the Lord.

"It is a warning," the Lord replied. "The shepherds are to study their sheep, and know them. They can only do this by being with them where they live. The enemy is attacking the unity of the flock by inflicting wounds upon My people, or by recalling to the remembrance of My children former wounds. I would have the shepherds to be aware of this strategy of the enemy, and to seek Me for instruction and guidance."


When the vision ended, I read Ezekiel 34. The Lord also laid on my heart Ezekiel 37:1-14 (in regard to the vision of the dry bones in the valley), and John 10 (about Jesus being our Good Shepherd).

I felt that Proverbs 27:23 was a warning to the shepherds ~~

"Be thou diligent to know the state of they flocks, and look well to thy herds."

In Him,
~~ Hollie L. Moody

We Yearn To Love Your More

Yolanda Ballard

Glory to the Lamb of God who sits upon the throne! My heart cries out, Oh, if we could get together right now and dance to our heart's content with our Lord as one! I believe the Lord is calling me into a ministry where the anointing will gather together those who have this same heart cry to be one with our Lord and each other and love Him wholeheartedly in worship and dance. There is so much power in dance and especially in intimacy we begin to know the Father's heart in such a deep and profound way. And He is beginning to trust us to pour out upon us His heart's cry for the lost in a way we have never experienced.

Yes, he will roar through us His deep heart cry for those He gave His life for that do not yet know Him. Yes, he will travail through us because we have drawn oh so close to Him that nothing else will satisfy us. We are casting off all the distractions. Our eyes our focused on Him because He is everything to us. Our hearts yearn for Him because He has purged us with the fire of His love. Deep cries unto deep at the sound of His waterspouts. And His glory is falling upon us and signs and wonders are getting ready to flow because we are speaking His words with power and might because we have been in His presence. He is healing our hearts and tearing down the walls and His river of love is stirring mightily and it will breakthrough once and for all through His people. And it will flow out into the sea and draw in the lost for this is the time and the hour that He is pouring out His power. Today is the day for revival, for! breakthrough, that we may love Him and dance with Him throughout all eternity.

Draw together as one and cry out for unity and that the walls will come down across the barriers of society. Cry out for pure and clean worship that is unhindered by man and by religion. Cry out that all strongholds will come down and that we will receive a pure word through the pulpits that will encourage us to lay our lives out as a sacrifice unto the Lord that His fire will continue to burn and purge and purify and that all darkness will come to the light and that we will be changed.

Oh come Lord Jesus fulfill our hearts desire to love you more, to be filled to overflowing with your love, and that You may live through us continually. We love Your Lord and yes we delight in your presence. We dance in our spirits before you and we are beginning to flow in dance outwardly in our own homes, and in the congregations, in the fields of flowers, on the streets. We will dance always Lord and your anointing follows us touching all in our paths. Oh Lord, I am so stirred!

Arms Wide Open

Kristin Reeg

Arms wide open
Exposing the heart
Here am I
I ask you to take a part
I've given you the script
It's up to you to play the part
I've given you the map
It's up to you to follow the way
I've given you the Truth
It's up to you to believe it

Step out in My faith, My child. Step out and believe that I can take your brokenness, that I can take your cracks and not only heal you, but use you in tremendous ways. I can't if you won't. I can't use you unless you choose to step out. I can't use you unless you're willing to fail. You can't succeed without the possibility of failure. You can't succeed unless you take a risk. Are you willing to take those risks? You know the call I have placed on your life how do you expect to obtain that call other than step by step. Follow Me - trust Me. I will talk through you. I will write through you - but you must choose to do something with the information, revelation, and insight I give to you. Freely, freely you have received. Freely, freely give. Go in My name and because you believe, others will know that I live.

If you truly want to bring others into a deeper relationship with Me - you have to live it and give it. Don't fear rejection. I go before you. I walk with you. My timing is perfect, but you must choose to walk with My spirit and in My timing. Go in My name and because you believe others will know that I live. Go in My name. Go. Write with Me. Walk with Me. Talk with Me. Listen with Me. And Go with Me.
