We Should be Holy and Without Blame
I speak unto you, My precious followers. You are My chosen ones, chosen to walk with Me before the beginning of time.
Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love. (Ephes. 1:4)
Beloved, I knew each of you before the world was formed, I knew everone who would be Mine. I orchestrated every detail of your lives. I allowed you to walk in strange paths and I drew you back to My side. I taught you My ways through times of suffering but always you knew that I walked with you and talked with you as I walked with Adam in the cool of the evening.
O, My children, I am raising you up to new levls of service for Me. I have heard your heart's cry for a deeper intimacy with Me and I am bringing you into a fresh, new relationship with Me.
My dearly beloved people, I am raising you up to serve Me in greater power in these days of great tribulation which have come upon the world. I shall endue you with all the abilities you will need to proclaim Me before men and multitudes shall come to Me through your ministries. As you are faithful in serving Me, I shall watch over you and protect you from destruction. I shall use each of you according to the natural talents I have given you. Some I shall raise up to serve through their musical talents. Some will have a talent for speaking and shall minister in preaching and teaching. Some will have talents in administration and will serve in that area. Some will have talents in prayer and shall pray for others with great faith and power. To some I have given the ability for great understanding of the Scriptures and they shall speak them forth with all knowledge. To all of you I shall give some expertise which will determine the way in which you will minister.
My people, I am raising up a great army to go forth in these last days, equipped with all they will need to minister to the multitudes. You know that My Scriptures concerning the last days are fast being fulfilled and that great troubles shall come upon the world. I tell you, My precious followers, as you continue to be faithful in your prayers, faithful in studying My Word, I shall protect you and bring forth great fruit from your ministries. I shall supply your needs and help you to supply the needs of all whom you encounter.
Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. (Isa. 60:1,2)

An End-Time Strategy
by Paul Keith & Wanda Davis
Over the last few months the Lord has been emphasizing a progressive revelation involving the cooperation between Heaven and earth in the fulfillment of end-time mandates. We will not achieve our highest purpose in God without the supernatural arena of the Spirit. This can be emphatically proven throughout the Bible and in particular the book of Acts.
Presently, there is a revelation coming from the Holy Spirit involving the assignment of "angels that gather" as depicted in Matthew 13. They will not only gather the wheat into the barn but also extract stumbling blocks that keep us from our ultimate destiny.
In Matthew 13 the Lord gives the following insight involving the latter-day generation saying,
And He said, "The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man, and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one; and the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are angels. "So just as the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the age.
"The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. "Then THE RIGHTEOUS WILL SHINE FORTH AS THE SUN in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear. Matthew 13:37-43
The Bible plainly articulates that the field in which the Lord has sown good seed is the world. The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The seed that He imparts are the children of the Kingdom.
The Ministry of Gathering
Unfortunately, unholy seeds were also sown into the same field by Satan. These seeds are called tares or sons of the evil one. Some translations use the word darnel which is a weed closely resembling wheat but without a seed of life to produce wheat.
Generally, the only time a distinction can be made between the two is at the time of harvest. This differentiation can primarily be identified when the wheat becomes mature and carries seeds of life causing it to bow over while the tares remain stiff and unyielding.
The harvest is designated as the closure or consummation of the ages in which reapers or angels will be released to labor in the fields for the ingathering. Not only will the wheat be gathered into the barn but the darnel will also be gathered so as to be burned. At the closure of the age the Lord will send angels who cooperate in this responsibility.
Winds and Fire
The "angels" are a consolidation of messengers of the Kingdom who are ministers of fire working cooperatively with ministering spirits who are as winds. (Hebrews 1:7) The consolidation of fire with wind causes a great blaze. That is the desired effect of the spiritual host of Heaven assigned to labor with this generation in the consummation of Gods Heavenly blueprint.
Furthermore, the "angels that gather" will also be empowered to extract out of His kingdom all causes of offense or persons by whom others are drawn into error or sin.
When this transpires then the prophecy of Daniel will begin to be fulfilled. (Daniel 12:3) The righteous, those who are upright and in right standing with God, will shine with the brilliance of the sun/son in the Kingdom of their Father. That day is upon us!
A Kingdom Portrait
To more fully understand these principles we must consolidate the various parables spoken in the following verses which paint a portrait of His heart for this fulfillment. The Lord stated that the Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto something precious buried in a field. The precious treasures are the sons of the Kingdom who have been sown in the world. Upon finding them, He sold all that He had in order to purchase for the sake of the Kingdom the field and the priceless treasures within. He gave up everything to become sin for us in order to purchase for God, men and women from every nation, tongue, tribe and kingdom. (Revelations 5:9)
After having articulated various parables related to the Kingdom, the Lord questioned His disciples. He asked, "have you understood all these things taken together? They replied, "yes." He then went on to announce that every teacher or interpreter of the sacred writings of Scripture who has been instructed about and trained for the sake of the Kingdom of Heaven and has become a disciple is like a householder who brings forth out of his storehouse both things old and new.
A Strategy of Heaven
It is the strategy of Heaven to identify storehouses and appoint overseers with spiritual authority. (Genesis 41:34-36) This is applied both individually and corporately. We can individually bring forth from the storehouse of our souls, revelations of truth that are foundational while at the same time articulating the fresh and unprecedented. Furthermore, there are corporate bodies that are being commissioned as a storehouse and delegated the authority to function as a gathering place for a first-fruits harvest that will constitute laborers in the great harvest. It will be a harvest of harvesters.
The storehouses will be responsible for gathering wheat in the surrounding region while the overseers are charged with the responsibility of "gathering" and "guarding" the wheat until the appointed time. The wheat portrays the sons of the Kingdom who are being groomed and prepared for the great harvest that is to come.
Both Things Old and New
The treasures that will be delegated from these spiritual storehouses will be revelatory truth that is both new and old. We will bring forward the delegation of truth imparted to prior generations and also release the mysteries and secrets of the Kingdom set apart for this age. This will be the consolidation of the fresh mingled with the familiar.
The important aspect of these revelations is their current application to where we are in church history. We are promised a generation who will do the "greater works." (John 14:12) These will be the sons of the Kingdom who carry the Sevenfold Spirit of God that rested upon the Lord Himself in His perfect example of a Son of the Kingdom.
The Lord once told Nathanael that he would witness far greater demonstrations of His power and authority when the heavens opened with angels ascending and descending upon the Son of Man. We should likewise be so familiar with the spiritual arena that we observe the angelic host ascending and descending upon the sons of the Kingdom in the fulfillment of Gods redemptive plan.
Clean Out Your House
I had a vision of rooms in a house. The corners of the rooms were full of boxes and things, all piled on one another that made the rooms seem darker and smaller than they should have been. I was also aware of a lot of dust. As I looked as these messy rooms the Lord immediately laid in me:
Clean out your house. A new season is upon you and this is time to clean out your house. You are to make way for the new and clear out the old.
Why are you holding on to the things that are of the past? Why are you storing up what you do not need? Do you not know yet that these things are worthless to you? How can you receive from me when your house is already full? Make room. Clear out your house and make room. Allow the light to come in and make the dark places bright. I tell you, you cannot move forward into a new season while you are storing up all the things of the past.
Be diligent and start. Now is the time. Now is the time to get your house in order. Start and do not delay for I tell you that a new season is upon you and will not delay. It will come in a flash, in a moment and it will be here, and you need to be ready, you need to be prepared and not weighed down with the old. Make space for the new. Clear out the old that festers and takes room that it should not have. Open the boxes that store the past and let them go, for a new time is upon you and I will see your house clean, I will see your heart ready to receive all I have for you.
Let us sit together and talk, you and I. Let Me tell you that I know the times have been hard and I know the season you have been in has been tiring. I know the thoughts that were in your head, for I formed you and I knew you before there was time. I know the despair you have been clutching and I know the weight you have carried. I know all these things and now I am telling you, let go. Let go of the old season and be ready, stand prepared, for the new season. New will follow old, so let go of the old and make way for the new. I tell you these things so that you are prepared, so that you are ready to walk forward, clothed in peace, strengthened with my love, sure of my word. I have not forgotten you and I have never left you.
You cannot see when you stand in the dust of yesterday. You will not see today dawn. Clean out your house and start now. The new season is coming and it will not delay.
Get Ready For Change
Get ready for change! No one can prevent it or effect this change. Change is coming and it is inevitable.
Just as there is change in the natural world, there is also change in the spiritual world. The seasons change, people change, every living thing goes through change. Spiritual change is coming to My people, it is happening even now.
You can't see it yet, but many of you can feel its effects and are anticipating change. For some it is an uncomfortable position to be in. Many of My people resist change and would rather keep things the way they are, because it is comfortable. Nevertheless, change is a constant process in the life cycle, both in the physical and the spiritual realms.
I Am saying to many, your present circumstances are about to change. Your position is about to change. Everything as you know it today is about to change.
"Then the LORD said to Joshua, 'Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you.' " (Joshua 5:9). With change there has to be an exchange! This exchange process can be painful and difficult, but only for a moment in time. Allow Me to take away all that hinders you from moving forward into your kingdom destiny. Come to spiritual Gilgal and allow Me to cut away the reproach from each of you. Let Me give you a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a heavy spirit.
However, some do not want to let go of what they are holding on to, so that they can take hold of what I want to give them in exchange. Consequently, many will be held back because of their fears and unbelief. Just know this My people, you are going through a changing process. Allow My Spirit to come in and bring the wind of change into your lives now. Do not delay, run to My mercy seat. For at My mercy seat is where change will take place. Come!
A New Season and Promises Fulfilled
"Your righteousness reaches to the skies, O God, You who have done great things. Who, O God, is like You? Though You have made me see troubles, many and bitter, You will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth You will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once again. I will praise You with the harp for Your faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praise to You with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel. My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to You... I, whom You have redeemed." PS 71:19-23
"For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "YES" in Christ. And so through Him the "AMEN" is spoke by us to the glory of God." 2 COR 1:20
"Then the Lord awoke as from sleep, as a man wakes from the stupor of wine. He beat back his enemies; he put them to everlasting shame." PS 78:65-66
My Faithful Ones, you have been going through the longest of seasons. A season of years for many and a season of sufferings. You look about you at a dreary and an unjust world and you see suffering coming on the innocent and My faithful ones while evil men continue to triumph. Still you stand with hope and belief that your God will come through for you and will turn the tables rightside up again and that you will step into a new season of your life and see the promises fulfilled.
Some say, why do you continue? Why don't you give up, you haven't received My promises after all this time, therefore why do you stand against all odds? But even walking 'through' the darkest valley of suffering, still your confidence remains in Me. Some say I have forgotten you....sometimes even you have thought I have forgotten you. Sometimes you feel as if I AM asleep, that I don't care or worse that I AM unaware of your situation. But even then you still remain committed to ME. While others have turned away from the path you remain steadfast even through the pain you are enduring.
I ask you, can the I AM forget one promise that I made to you? What have I promised you? Have I promised you your healing? THEN EXPECT TO BE HEALED! Have I promises you finances? THEN EXPECT YOUR INHERITANCE! Have I promised deliverance to you and your family of all that plagues you? THEN EXPECT DELIVERANCE! ALL of My promises to you WILL be fulfilled. They are "YES" but not only YES, they are "AMEN", IN CHRIST, to the Glory of your God, through you!!! You are the apple of My eye and the object of My Glory......
But, you say, I have been waiting for "years" for this day, but I say unto you.... the I AM has been waiting for this day since the world began. Beloved, I have heard every cry of "How long, Lord, How Long " as Satan has been working on you as never before to have you doubt even one promise that I have given you. You have prayed and you have believed, even though many times you felt to be the weakest of My faithful. Now you shall see Me act and when I decide to act things happen very quickly. As I fulfilled My Word to send a Savior, now you will see Me fulfill My word to you as you leave this long, long season behind. Old things are passing away and new things now you shall see. I have given you exceedingly great and precious promises. As this new season fast approaches, rejoice and give Me the praise for all that I AM about to do as you walk into A New Season and Promises Fulfilled.
Now the Wind, then the Freeze
John L. Moore
Winds of change and transition have been blowing across the land since the beginning of 2004 and will continue to do so for a season, but the season will have an abrupt end.
First the wind, but then a freeze. This freeze will solidify many in their new positions and enable them to enjoy a season of reaping and harvest. For others this freeze will be a time of anguish as they realize their presumption and procrastination has left them outside the gates while the sounds of ceremony and banqueting resound from within.
The freeze will not be permanent but it will be a foreshadowing of the 10 virgins of Matthew 25:1-12 and the judgment of Revelation 22:11.
In this period of transition many are learning both the goodness and the severity of our Lord (Romans 11:22). Those willing to pay a radical price can expect more than a radical return on their investment. Those who allow themselves to be seduced by comfort will learn the lessons of discomfort. Those nursing spiritual babies must leave the rocking chair and flee for higher ground. The Lord will have mercy on the young and will comfort the children but those of due age will be tested to see if they understand authority and responsibility. Let them first know responsibility for the authority will come.
Many during this time will be moved and repositioned geographically as well as spiritually. Pastors will leave churches for the sake of the Kingdom. Others will leave farm, ranches, family, and businesses. Many who have been misplaced in religious roles will find themselves thrust into marketplace ministry which was the Lord's original intention for them but the religious world was blind to their needs and giftings. The Lord in His wisdom is placing his kings and knights on the royal chessboard to thwart the attack of the Accuser and his pawns.
Look for the freeze to come at the time of natural harvest. When the harvest moon hangs heavy in the sky and the eyes of man are on the shifting and changing of political leadership within our nation the Lord of Harvest will whistle for the north winds. The north winds, for a season, will bind each to that which he has treasured.

I had a vision of a donkey harnessed to a cart, driven by a person with a whip, but also being enticed by a carrot on a long stick. I believe the donkey represents our own stubborn flesh, and this is what the Lord said: Now is a time when your idols are being torn down, and if you do not replace your altars and idols of worship with a true devotion and commitment to the One true and living God instead of your selfish desires, you will be driven by discontentment and led by a seducing spirit, and your soul will be in constant turmoil. Activate your will and choose to discipline your flesh and become My faithful and loyal disciple, for then I will surely lead you by My Spirit and bring you forth into peace and joy.
It is Time for Revolution!!

Go forth; for it is high time to stand up , rise up, push forward, press on , look to Him, follow His steps, listen to His voice, look to the Lamp that lights the Way before you.
It is high time to be revolutionized. It is time to reflect on the revelation that He has shown, that He has spoken from the beginning. All things that He has spoken shall come to pass in due time. His spoken word became flesh...you were called upon before entrance into your mothers womb. You were not a mistake, you were not an accident, you were called here by God to fulfill a great purpose for Him in this earth. You were created beautiful in His eyes. Your name was spoken by God and you were brought into existence for such a time as this. There is nothing that can keep you down because the Lord Jesus Christ is holding you up. There is nothing you can not do because you can do all things through Him who gives you the strength to do so. You are not defeated because He is victorious in you.
You are not broke down but being built up.
For those who are crucified with Him live with Him.
2 Corinthians 4:7-11IT IS TIME....The Lord is saying, IT IS TIME!!!! We must come up higher now , for the time of this season is drawing to an end and one that is coming will be one of great and tremendous and mighty, and strong growth. For this season has been a difficult one for many; but the Lord God Almighty has set forth a word for HIS remnant and He is saying;
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 8We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed-- 10always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
There is purpose in all that I have set out to accomplish in you and through you. There is nothing that you have endured that I have not seen. It is MY strength saith the Lord that has held you during this process of elimination of self, of motive, of agenda so that I could arise within you. For in this hour to whom much is given much is required. I have looked to and fro for those who have stood in the fire and have not run. I have watched where you could have taken the easy road but chose the narrow, the difficult , the humbling way to Me. I am calling for a chosen and faithful people who will lift up and hold MY banner unto all nations to declare MY name and reveal MY glory that has come from all that you have endured through, unto all people. IT IS TIME!!!!
Be ready!! Know your place, Know your position, Know where I have called you to stand. For I alone will do this great work through you and My glory will shine in darkness and MY light will remove darkness. For where I AM saith Adonai, there is no darkness. Let us go for as you abide in ME, I shall abideth in you. I will speak through you, I will heal through your hands, I will deliver through my authority and dominion through a spoken word that will breathe upon My people who call upon MY name and to every dry bone will come life. For I am calling a great and mighty army into place. I will hold you up, I will strengthen you, I will sustain you and keep you in places you would never imagine you could stand. You will know that I AM that I AM has sent you and kept you through this commission (co-MISSION). This CO-Mission is one in which we will walk together. This is... the great C0-Mission.
IT IS TIME!!! Greater Revelation, Great Revolution, to fulfill the Great Co-Mission in Jesus Christ. You may not be understood, its allright, you may think your alone but it is a mission between you and Jesus.He is there with you right now. Walking with you. Yes, He is the One who enables you to walk in Him. Dont try to explain it, dont try to justify it, dont try to even understand all of it. Just do it!! Fulfill all that He has called you to do. IT IS TIME!!
IT is the Day!!!
The Lord has given us the grace to reconcile the children to their Fathers
