Repentance & Looking to God

Bob Steward

I saw a vision of large group of people, crowded together, holding up & opened over their heads - black umbrellas. I didn't actually see the people but only a plethora of black umbrellas, very close together. Then I looked up and saw & felt raindrops landing on my face. This water was so refreshing and I was sensing so much love from God. What a joy I was having in this rain!! It seemed to me that this rain was coming from God and that He wanted to saturate us with this rain.

Again, I looked at the huge cluster of opened black umbrellas, I asked Father God, "How are the people going to receive the rain You are showering down on us? What do You want me to do to have them lower and close their umbrellas?"

It was then, that I noticed that I, too, was holding an umbrella, but mine was down & closed. As my attention was drawn back to the black umbrellas before me, I saw, one by one, each umbrella being lowered and closed, and each person fixing his & her gaze upwards to allow the raindrops to fall on their face. Quickly, the people were saturated by the water as they just stood there with joyous expressions on their faces while being refreshed by God's rain.

After pondering about 'what was God showing to me', He revealed to me the meaning. The opened black umbrellas, the people were holding up to keep dry, were the 'fears', 'doubts', 'unbelief', and 'pride' that prevented them from receiving all that God was raining down on us. The 'rain' was God's Word that He is speaking to us, namely -- wisdom, love, encouragement, understanding, discernment, compassion, & kindness, and much more, to help us, heal & deliver us, refresh & guide us, counsel & give us insight. All to cause an ever-increasing intimacy in our relationship with Him.

I believe that God is saying to us, "Trust Me. Turn from and renounce those 'things' which are preventing you from fully surrendering to and following Me. I desire for you to have intimacy, closeness, fulfillment, and friendship with Me. Allow My Word to saturate you, cleanse you, refresh you and cause you to be full of joy. I love you and have given Myself up for you to make you holy, cleansing you by the washing with water through My Word, to present you to Me, as a radiant church, My bride, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless."

The Lord also says, "I have set you free from all your all your sins, (those things which are hindering you from being My disciples), by My shed Blood. So I say, Humble yourselves and cast away the black umbrellas and be refreshed by My Word & filled with Me."

There is a desperation deep inside that has been planted as a seed before the beginning of time, within My divine design for mankind. This seed, an image (likeness) of that which was and is within Me. A desperation so defining that the satisfying thereof comes only from the completeness of fellowship and communion with the fullness of the Godhead.

I have patiently waited, as you must do, for its development, as it is watered by the water of My word, and nurtured by My love, and warmed by My Sonshine as it beams across your life. In this way it will grow and mature into its destiny and intensity, increasing the revelation of Christ in you the hope of glory.

This holy desperation, from before the world began, was in My heart and I have chosen to bestow it upon those who would seek for Me with all of their heart for the intimacy and fellowship that I would have with My children. It has been birthed from My own heart into man, to comprehend that need for intimacy and fellowship for your good and My pleasure. All creation has been brought into being for My pleasure and purpose. And, I desire a oneness and completeness for My children like My Son has with Me.

Oneness is fulfilled in completeness and is only realized in need, desperation, and incompleteness. Thus I bring all things to a place whereby I may increase revelation of Christ in you, resulting in hope, and that of glory. This increase of glory and knowledge parallels holiness and the pursuit thereof, causing an increasing awareness of love and fulfillment.

This growing desperation within you for Me is the reason for My rejoicing, with singing and dancing over you, with love, and with abounding joy. There is an increase coming that you may abound with desperation for Me that I may fill and satisfy your longings, overflowing with the fruitfulness that draws others into My presence.

As this desperation continues, you are being constantly conformed into My image, with an awareness of the revelation of Christ within you, evident for all to see. Your desire, hunger, and desperation is to become one with Me and bear much fruit. Behold now you will bear abundantly of My fruit and it will be bountiful and satisfying. You will be heavy laden with fruit, that the hungry would be fed, and the poor in spirit would be filled, and those seeking peace would see Me.

Behold! I Stand at the Door!

Ann Smith

Behold! I stand at the door of My Church, knocking! Answer the door! Let Me come all the way in! A new day is dawning. I want to do new things in you. I am pouring out My Spirit afresh on thirsty souls. Let Him have His way in you--for the end of the ages is near; the Day of the Lord is at hand! Gross darkness will cover the earth, but My Spirit is arising on My people, so arise and shine! Many have become apathetic and don't even know it! I say, wake up, stir yourselves up! Many are comfortable and religious and don't want change. Turn your back on the world and draw near to Me! I am desiring to be very intimate with you, closer than you've ever known before! I love you so much. I desire to free you from all guilt and condemnation.

I will soon display Myself as King of the universe and take My crown. My Queen, My Bride, will rule by My side! Be ready for the Wedding Feast. I am purifying My Church so you can contain My glory! Do not be as the five unwise virgins. When they come and knock on the door, I will have to say to them, "I do not know you!" So, stay alert - I am coming soon, and because I love you, I will keep knocking on the door!

Dig Deeper

Yolanda Ballard

Once you have sought My face, don't give up when it seems like you aren't getting anywhere. For I persuade you to continue to seek Me. I promised you that those who diligently seek Me, I will reward with My presence, with revelation of an abiding light and direction. If you will seek Me with all your heart, I will give you the desire of your heart to know Me more intimately. If you will even dig deeper, I will give to you nuggets of deeper understanding of My word and My ways.

So I encourage you to dig deeper and never give up. I will give you what you long for----to be able to come into a higher level of worship and warfare, to pull down the strongholds over your land, to have an open breakthrough of revelation and light. Nothing will be hidden from you if you dig deeper.

Do not compare yourself with other vessels of glory that I am using powerfully at this time. You all have different seasons where I move through you in a more profound way than others. But don't ever think I am not using you to influence others that you come in contact with. But be careful, My lovely ones, that the enemy is right at the door ready to trip you up when you step out in ministry.

He will try to snare you in several subtle ways that you might not think are important, but remember it is the little foxes that spoil the vine. I say to you this hour to repent of your jealousies and competition. Repent of all pridefulness, and humble yourself before Me, and I will lift you up by filling you to overflowing with My glory and grace, My power and presence. For yes, I will enable you to overcome in the onslaughts of the enemy. Be on guard to areas where the enemy will try to retaliate when you are taking the land.

Rise up, My mighty warriors. Worship Me in the beauty of holiness. Make worship and warfare a way of life for you for it is now becoming more perilous times. Dig deeper. Come into My throne room of grace, and I will reveal to you nuggets of gold, of fine precious jewels, of rubies and diamonds.

Come out of your caves for I have preserved you for this time and for this hour. For I am now bringing you more into the front lines of battle where you will even blind the enemy by the glory that reflects from your armor of light. As you gather together as one, the mighty brightness of My glory upon you will build to become a mighty force field of light. This is My love which is so pure and holy repelling that of darkness away from those I gave My life for. Those precious souls will respond to My glory and love and be drawn to you.

You will win them over by My presence upon you as you just yield to My Spirit. And as you reach out in gestures of love, My power will rush through you and touch them in their deepest parts. For they are so hungry for Me and just don't know it or how to receive from Me. So I need you, My loved ones. I need you to be My vessels of light and revelation to those who are dying in sin. Be there for Me. Be always ready and yielded so that I can use you.

So do your part by coming before Me so I can heal you. Let Me touch you so I can fill you with My love. Open up completely to Me. Do not hide from Me or those I send to you your inner need to be completely set free, for this is the time and the hour for complete manifestation of My salvation upon your life. Claim the whole package for which I died for you to have. Be sure that My love will take you through to the end. You will overcome and you will win, says your Lord and King.

Tag - My children run from My touch just as children run during a game of tag. For they have been in this place before and they know when touched -when tagged - they are then "IT".

Once you have been touched you know it is your turn to run, to chase, to pursue, those that need the same touch. Once My anointing, My touch has been given to you, you MUST run and pursue - you are "IT" - you become ignited to touch - IT - Ignited Touch.

Don't run from Me as a child playing tag - be touched, be tagged and then run and pursue those needing a touch. You will not fail. You will not run out of breath, you are neither too old nor too young. This is not a childish game. Rather, it is as simple as a child's game - you get tagged and then you run and pursue.

Death In the Pot

Stephen Hanson

2KI 4:38 Elisha returned to Gilgal and there was a famine in that region. While the company of the prophets was meeting with him, he said to his servant, "Put on the large pot and cook some stew for these men." 2KI 4:39 One of them went out into the fields to gather herbs and found a wild vine. He gathered some of its gourds and filled the fold of his cloak. When he returned, he cut them up into the pot of stew, though no one knew what they were. [40] The stew was poured out for the men, but as they began to eat it, they cried out, "O man of God, there is death in the pot!" And they could not eat it.


(The Lord showed me in a vision a kettle of soup that was cooking on a stove. The person was stirring and stirring it. It seemed to be something that might be good to eat. As it began to boil more and more, I looked at the contents closer. There in the midst of the soup were bugs and other things. As I continued to look, there were indeed flies in the soup. It wasn't something pleasant to look at, and I thought that this certainly wouldn't be something good or healthy to eat. I noticed one fly in particular and saw it close-up. I noticed its eyes and then suddenly, the fly released larvae or material from it. This came out of the fly and began to fill up the pot of soup.)

"Oh my people, this soup is indicative of what many of you are willing to eat. You think that you are partaking of healthy things. What is the meat and what are the vegetables that you are eating? Are you eating and partaking of my word, or are you partaking of another gospel? I say that there is death in the pot. Leave this soup alone and do not eat it. The enemy has tried to entice you with it. But my word is profitable and it will fill your bones with delight. The land is filled with this type of thing. Many have eaten of it. Truly these things can influence you. Truly, what you eat becomes a part of you. Many of you have not partaken of my food, says the Lord. Many of you compromise with the world's standards. How can you be a good reflection of Me if you do this? "

"I say, go back to the stove and prepare another meal. Fill it full of my holy word. It will surely satisfy, and it will surely give health to your bones. I have given of my body and my blood. Why would you eat something else? You need to be nourished and you need to be fed. Without a proper diet you will not be strengthened for the days ahead. You will be without sustenance and you will be without energy. But if you follow my directions and eat a proper diet then you will be sustained. "

Stephen Hanson

Messengers Of The Covenant

Hollie L. Moody

As so often has happened this past year, I experienced a vision where I was in a wilderness setting. The Lord was also with me. I heard the sound of raised voices crying out in the midst of the wilderness. I looked around, but at first saw no one else in the wilderness with the Lord and I.

"What is the sound of these voices?" I asked the Lord.

"These are the messengers of My covenant," the Lord replied. "Behold!"

I stared in the direction the Lord was pointing. At first, I saw only what appeared to be a mist. As I continued to gaze into the mist, I began to see the shapes of many other people in the wilderness. I saw next to each of these people an angel. I was perplexed when I saw that the angels appeared to be removing objects from the hands of the person they were standing next to. The people were objecting to having these things removed from their hands, and were crying out.

"What is happening?" I asked the Lord. "What are the angels taking from the hands of these people?"

"All that is not of Me is being taken and removed from the hearts and lives of these people," the Lord replied.

"What will they be left with?" I asked the Lord.

"Nothing except Me and that which is of Me," the Lord replied. "This process is now complete. Now it is a time of being ministered to."

I watched silently as the angels reached out and began to touch and minister to the person they were standing next to. Each person had the appearance of having been through a tremendous ordeal, but as the angels continued to touch and minister to them, it was like I could see strength entering into them.

I then watched as each person was given a change of clothing. After each person had changed their garments, they were then given a package.

"What are these packages?" I asked the Lord.

"Each package contains exactly what the person receiving it is in need of to speak forth My word to others," the Lord replied. "With what is contained within their package, each person will be equipped to administer a particular message from Me to those to whom I send them."

I watched and saw as the people began to open up their individual packages. Some packages contained swords or other types of weaponry. Some of the packages contained small bottles with what appeared to be oil in them. I saw that still other packages contained what appeared to be medicines and/or food items. There were also packages which contained fishing paraphernalia. Some of the people had shovels and other types of farming equipment in their packages. Still other packages contained items such as axes, hammers, etc.

After each person had opened up their package, they then advanced to the very edge of the wilderness. Soon, the people were lined up beside each other at the perimeter of the wilderness. They were all standing very still, gazing fixedly outwards from the wilderness.

I followed the direction of the eyes of the people, and realized we were staring out into the nations of the world.

The nations and the people of the nations were in great turmoil and distress. It seemed that the entire world was seething with a tremendous restlessness. The seasons appeared to be mixed-up, which seemed to be causing great drought and devastation of crops in many of the nations. As a result, I saw boarded up stores or stores with empty shelves. Other nations were receiving an overabundance of rain and were being flooded; crops and houses were being swept away in the fierce rains.

I saw nation at war with nation. The people of the nations had the appearance of fear and terror on their faces.

The Lord began to separate the people into two groups according to what their packages contained. One group held in their hands what appeared to be weapons of warfare. The other group held in their hands what appeared to be items of healing, farming, construction, etc.

"What are these two groups of people?" I asked the Lord.

"One group will speak forth My blessings to the obedient of the world," the Lord replied. "The other group will speak forth My judgments on the disobedient."

The Lord then went and stood before the two groups of people.

"The time has fully come," He said to them.

The Lord then spoke to the group of people who held in their hands items of farming, building and/or construction tools.

"I send you forth to preach repentance and to heal those who are in need of healings," He said to them. "You will confirm My covenant of peace and blessings to the obedient who are weary, discouraged and in need of strengthening. Remind them of My mercy."

The Lord then turned to the group of people who appeared to be holding weapons of warfare in their hands. "I send you forth to declare My words of judgment against the ungodly who refuse to turn from their wicked ways," the Lord said to them.

"Go!" the Lord commanded both groups of people.

I turned and watched as the two groups of people converged on the nations of the world.

I watched as one group brought healings, restoration, hope, etc., to the people of the nations who loved the Lord. I watched as things that had been broken down were built back up by them. I saw as some of the people from the wilderness cast out nets into the oceans of the world, and when they drew the nets back to shore, had gathered the souls of the lost. This scene thrilled my heart.

I also observed as the other group of people, with their axes and/or weapons of warfare, fought against those who refused to submit to the authority of the Lord God. All that was against the Lord, was hewn down. These scenes filled me with dread.

"What is this all about, Lord?" I asked the Lord.

The Lord turned and answered me. "These are prophets of the Highest, messengers of My covenant," He said to me. "I have prepared them, proved them and known them in their time in the wilderness. They go before Me to prepare the way for My return. And truly, child, My return is near; even at the doors."

Wordlessly, I turned and once again began to watch the messengers of the covenant as they went forth into the world with their message from the Lord.

In Him,
~~ Hollie L. Moody
