The Day For Restoration

Yolanda Ballard

From the heart of the Father to the heart of His people the Lord expressly gives a warm welcome that you envelope yourself in His love and grace and that you visit the lost as if they were your very own family. Love your neighbor as you would your very own family, but in this day and time many families are not close, because the enemy was allowed to steal, kill and destroy relationships, because they were not grounded in the love of the Father. But I tell you today to not allow it to happen any longer.

Be open and ready for the Lord is pouring out His grace in restoring all that the enemy had set out to do. And that includes relationships between those in the body of Christ that had been divided through the deception of the enemy in pouring out heresies, yes, lies, doctrines that were from demons, and legalistic encounters to control and manipulate My people. Yes, this is the day for restoration. My heart cry is that we be one as I and My Father are one.

Yes, join together in My truth. Cry out for Truth and restoration, for unity, for without it you will not make it against the enemy of your soul. Join together, My beloved, and open your hearts that I may teach you even the basics of My word once again to gain a sure foundation. Yes, this will be a refresher course in My word, and we will breeze through this undoing the lies of the evil one and gaining the knowledge that had been lost in the turmoil, and you will come out stronger than before, and we will build upon a sure foundation of My truth and love, and we will go out and spread the gospel of My love to those I gave My life for.

Be ready for a breakthrough, for the revelation of My light, for the purging to begin, for I AM pouring out My fire and My rain, and I AM readying My people to go out to reap the harvest like never before. For this is the time I AM pouring out My grace and glory and My love upon My Bride, and I AM restoring all that the cankerworm has destroyed, and the palmerworm, and the locusts. For you have no part of the curse that is poured out on the disobedient.

I have promised you life abundant. And those who have suffered great loss and have endured long, this is the time I will reward you for your faithfulness for staying by My side. You have looked past the loss with the hope and expectancy of restoration. And the promise is yours. For I AM the Lord of the breakthrough and of new beginnings. Let the past melt away. Keep your eyes on tomorrow, the day of new beginnings. Look past the threshold and see the open door of blessings for it is yours to take for you and your household, for the nations. Reach out and take what is yours.

All My promises to you are yes and Amen if you hold first in your life My will and My kingdom, if you will reach out to the lost, and love your families. Yes, if you meet My conditions, you will prosper and be in health as your soul prospers. And as you step out and ground yourself in My word, your joy and peace will return, and My love will flow like a river through you.

Yes, this is the day that My people rise up and be all that I've called them to be.....a worshipper, a warrior, one that will not settle for less than the best. My will be done, My kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven!

A Sound of Joy and Celebration

John Brozozowski

There is a sound coming forth from the earth. It is a sound of joy and thanksgiving, it is a sound of joy and thanksgiving coming up out of the earth, surrounding the earth, up from all parts of the earth. It is the sound of God's people rising up in the joy of the Lord, rising up, and casting down imaginations and vain things. Rising up and living in the authority of the Word of God and the blood of the Lamb. Taking their place as God's people to bring righteousness and justice in the land. It is the sound of praise and thanksgiving. It is the sound of victory as they say "we will no longer compromise with the enemy, for he has deceived us, but the Lord has found us and redeemed us and repaired us and we will go forth in the power of his name. We will do those works which he has commanded us. We will be his arm of redemption, of healing, of righteousness and justice in the earth." We will be the head and not the tail. We will not rule harshly, but we will put the enemy under our feet, that there would be liberty and justice. We will open the blind eyes through our prayers and thanksgiving.

That new sound is a sound of thanksgiving and joy and of victory. For there will be great victory as God's people take their place and join together and link up arm and arm across the generations, across the oceans, across the miles, as they seek one purpose, to be found in Him and to be found victorious in Him. And they will say it is not enough that we live in Him, but we must take that message to my people and across the waters. I must take that message up to the mountains and into the desert. For the Lord has done such great things for me.

And we will be the repairers of the breech and the old walls will again be repaired and there will be safety within the walls. And the Kingdom of God will again be established in the places where the walls have been compromised and broken and even abandoned. And where there are ruins where God once dwelt, where God once reigned. And yet His flag will again be raised within the city and His banner over the city will be His love. And He will reign over the desert places and the high places will again be the throne of our God. And the false thrones will come down as the altars of God are repaired, as the acceptable sacrifices are offered, that the Spirit of the Lord would again inhabit the desolate places.

So take what has been freely given to you, even that which is freshly being offered to you. And take it and run well. For it is a victorious race that you will run if you run well. For I have given you new shoes with which to run. For I am setting before you a new race. Many of my people will have a new race set before them, a new purpose set before them, and there will be new shoes and new uniforms. And my people will not just look good in their warm-up suits, even their designer warm-up suits. But they will strip off the warm-up suits and be ready to run well in the uniform and the equipment which I have provided.

For apostolic and prophetic voices will come forth and set forth the race, setting forth the course which God's people need to run. For the course is not a circular track where you go round and round and round in circles, but there will be guideposts to direct your path. There will be sections where you will need to sprint and there will be rest stops and there will be mountains and there will be valleys. There will be refreshment along the way, but I will set you into the purpose for which you were created, as you fan the flame of your desire for me.

Divine Opportunities

Jana Alcorn

I am going beyond the surface of all things, saith the Lord. I am moving your eyes from that which is seen to that which is unseen. I am positioning you to see what I see and to desire what I desire, says the Lord.

When your focus is upon the things that I am focusing on, you shall see manifestation. Now is the time for Me to meet with you behind the veil of the flesh.

Seek what I seek, and you shall receive My favor and My Divine opportunities.
Be ready to receive a full reward, says the Lord!

Trial By Fire

Sylvia Deall

Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him! Nothing can touch our lives except God allows it. God knows exactly what is needed in each one of us in order for us to become the vessels of honour He desires us to be. He tailor-makes each refining fire so we can become His glory bearers. When we concentrate on the flames, we miss seeing the One who walks in the fire with us. When we choose to focus on the heat and the fire, we miss knowing the One who chose the fire for us and is strong to deliver in the midst.

When we regard the fire as the work of the enemy, and see it as attack, we give the glory to him rather than to the Lord Who made the fire and placed us in it. We need to recognise from whose hand the circumstances of our lives come. When we chafe and kick and scream instead of submitting to the refining of the Lord, we only make the process more painful for ourselves.

Do we rebuke the enemy only to find we are really rebuking the Lord? Do we bind the enemy, only to find we are trying to bind the work of the cross in our lives? How we need to discern what is really going on, instead of being so swift to declare we are under attack! So much of what happens in our lives is just part of living in a fallen world. So much is the result of our own choices, our own sins, our own flesh rising up. Let us rejoice in the trials that come our way, knowing that it is God at work in us, perfecting us, refining us, putting the flesh to death, purifying us, setting us free, so He might increase in us, so He might shine, so the world might see Him through us.

God is the One Who is sovereign! He is the Lord of lords! He alone has control of our lives! He alone chooses what path we are to walk! He is the One Who makes us more than conquerors in the midst of all things! To Him alone be glory!

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith – of greater wroth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed. 1 Peter 1.6,7

Get Ready

Mary Lloyd

But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof. Romans 13:14

And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons: freely ye received, freely give. Get you no gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses; 0no wallet for your journey, neither two coats, nor shoes, nor staff: for the laborer is worthy of his food. Matthew 10, 7-10

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matthew 6:19-26


Get ready, My people, and consider the time in which you live. Do not allow your ears to be dulled to the sound of My voice calling you to awake, calling you to open your eyes and see what thing I do in your midst.

Can you not feel the excitement of this hour? Is your heart not full already with My promises that are ready to come into being?

Dear ones, it is nearly time for you to receive those things your heart has been longing for: the dream is ready to be lived; the child is ready to be birthed; the vision is trembling at the gate of consciousness, ready to burst upon your mind. Do not trouble yourself that you have not the details in your grasp just yet. I will reveal, and I will deliver, and I will supply.

I am waiting. I am waiting for you.

You have moved as it were in a land whose currency is foreign to you, and its language unfamiliar. As you have sought Me and repented of your wrongdoing and longed for the image of My Son to be imprinted upon your soul, so your feet have dragged in the things of the world, and you have become more at odds with it.

Worldly things increasingly do not satisfy you or interest you, and you have felt more and more like a foreigner, a stranger, a sojourner. This is good. But there is more.

I am about to revolutionize your reasoning. Seize this moment. Put off the works of darkness that the Light may shine into your hearts fully, that the light may protect you from what is to come, and from what seeks to hold you back.

My Son walked in poverty, with nowhere to lay His head. (Are you ready? Are you listening? Are you seeing what I am showing you?)

My Son walked in liberty, as a Son should, through all My Kingdom, and all the wealth of it at His disposal. (Do you hear it? Does it please you? Can your heart embrace this perfect Truth?)

Yes My dear ones. Deliverance is near. Humble yourself to receive it. Make yourself ready. I AM coming to you. I will not leave you unchanged. I will not disinherit you.

I AM your provider.

My Kingdom comes.

Drag your feet no longer as a stranger
In a strange land.

God Has a Remnant

Jack Hodgdon

God does have a remnant, the last of the last to be.

Hidden in his bosom, God’s glory they shall see!

They were called and they were chosen, before the

Foundation of the earth

The years of many generations have waited for their birth

Yes, God has a remnant his kind they shall be

Joined together in one spirit, sealed before eternity.

From the womb of the morning, his beauties they shall come.

A remnant of his glory the victory they have won!

They have waited in obscurity, redemption’s song to sing!

They stand on Sion’s mountain, the book of life to be.

Yes, God has a remnant, from the sea to shining sea,

The new Jerusalem mother, from the past and the present

Reality to be.

They were mine from the beginning, from the dawning to this time.

My jewel’s and hidden treasures, they are my new creation,

They are mine divine, created for this very time.

Jack Hodgdon

Arise As Bold Warriors

Musa Opiyo

I would have you as My servants Joshua and Caleb, who firstly had seen My hand in operation throughout their travailing and journey from Egypt. Knowing that I the Alpha and Omega was capable of doing what I said I would do, were unnerved when they beheld the giants of the land before them. They knew that of themselves they could not do the job of eradicating their enemies, yet they leaned upon Me for their strength. They refused to speak in unbelief when the rest of their brothers spread fear among the camp. They waited on Me and knew that I had given them the land for their inheritance.

As with My servants of old, you My people are on the threshold of your promised land. You have lingered in the wilderness long enough. Some of the ‘older generation’ doctrine that caused you to turn back is disappearing as My truth is etched on your hearts. The land I have given before you is your inheritance. Yet I have allowed the giants in your way as a set up to show Myself strong in you. Do not look to the natural but to the supernatural.

As these giants advance and try to stop you from moving forward declare My praises and My promises that will ensure the downfall of all that would oppose and hinder My work in you. Do you think that singular stone killed Goliath as it proceeded from the slingshot? Was it not as David released the stone, that My power went behind it? So I AM equipping My end time army with such power. Your prayers and praise may not seem all that much significant to you, yet when the focus is on Me, I would say unto you as I said to Jehoshaphat, “The battle is mine and I will fight it.” Therefore fear not. Arise as bold warriors with the armour of the Lord on you. You are victorious because I say you are victorious for truly what I have spoken shall not return void.

Musa Opiyo

Seek the Building of My Spirit

Stephen Hanson

By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, [13] his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work. If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames. 1CO 3:10-15

Go and tell my servant David, `This is what the LORD says: Are you the one to build me a house to dwell in? I have not dwelt in a house from the day I brought the Israelites up out of Egypt to this day. I have been moving from place to place with a tent as my dwelling. Wherever I have moved with all the Israelites, did I ever say to any of their rulers whom I commanded to shepherd my people Israel, "Why have you not built me a house of cedar?" 2SA 7:5-7

A new day is coming. A new day is coming for many of my people. No more will my people be lacking. I tell you that the enemy of your souls will not triumph over you. From the rising of the sun to its setting down, I will watch over you. I tell you that difficult days are ahead but I will watch over you. Beware of what the world will promise you. Know that I will see you through the trials and temptations of this life. The waters will not overtake you and the flames will not touch you. I tell you that divine protection is found under my wings. Nothing will harm or hurt my people if they are found under my wings.

I tell you these things because you are entering into a new era and time. For the church, as a whole, will be going through a lot of changes. What are those changes?

(The Lord showed me a vision of a small church. I was looking at it from above without a ceiling or roof on it. The walls were made of dirt and people were beginning to leave. Many of them were climbing up on ladders on the sides of the building, where the dirt walls were. They then climbed up and walked away. I noticed several pieces of rubble and rock where once a building was. There were pews and other accessories that one might find in a church today, except that the building itself was set into a dirt enclosure. The scene changed and now I saw jewels and riches being spilt upon the ground. As I watched, a man was taking something and was dispersing or scattering it upon the ground from side to side as he walked. This continued for some time, and then the vision faded.)

I tell you that many within the body of Christ will pursue after riches in this hour. Those who pursue after the things of this world will be consumed by it. A new type of church will emerge out of the ground. It will be a place where I have "hollowed" it out. You will need to be in "protection" in these days, for no more will governments and agencies be a protection for you. Seek the building of my spirit.
