As we are approaching Christmas and the end of the year, let us remember that the goodness and mercy of the Lord follows us all the days of our lives (Psalms 23:6). The Lord is pouring out His goodness from heaven upon us!

In Exodus 33:18, Moses said to the Lord, “Show me your glory.” The Lord responded to him in verse 19, saying, “I will make all My goodness pass before thee; and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee, and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.”

What is His goodness? Goodness in the Hebrew is word “tub,” and it means His goodness, His beauty, His gladness, His welfare, His joy!

Do you need the joy of the Lord today? Do you want to start walking in the joy of the Lord? When Moses said “Show me you glory,” the Lord basically said, “I will let My goodness pass before you.” Praise the Lord! God wants to reveal His joy, His beauty, His gladness to you!

See, when you walk in the joy of the Lord, in His beauty and His gladness, then His glory will come forth. Manifestations of His glory can come in the form of laughter, fire, or healing. It may even come in the Kabod glory, which is a weightier and heavier glory that is part of the character of God. I know I want to carry this Kabod glory!

When God shows you His goodness, He is sharing His honor, authority and character with you. The Hebrew word “Shem” confirms this, as it means thatGod is revealing His character, authority and honor.

Do you want to see more of the glory of the Lord in your life? Do you want to be a glory carrier? Then you need to know and understand God’s goodness and how He proclaims His name before you.

You need to know how good God is. Take an evaluation. How good is God? Do you feel that God is good in your life? Is God One who is good in everything that He does? Or do you have a theology that says God is only good when He does this or that?

Open yourself up to the goodness of the Lord. Proclaim His name! Habakkuk 2:14 says, “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters covers the sea.” This is an element that will come before the revealing of the Kabod glory.

God’s character is one of goodness and joy. When you stand in His joy, honor and authority, you become a glory carrier. This allows the Lord to release His glory into your home, workplace, city, state and nation.

You ARE CALLED to be a glory carrier! Take time today to ask the Lord to show you His goodness.

Share this with a friend who needs to see that God’s goodness is present in their life!

You have come through a time of testing for promotion. Yes! I can see it happening in the heavenly realms! The Lord is pouring out grain, wine, and oil upon you (Hosea 2). The vats of heaven are opened. I see gold and silver from heaven being poured down upon you. The resources of heaven are coming to touch you right now, to aid in this promotion.

Why, you ask? Because God is getting things into alignment for you. A divine set up for January 2022! God causes all things for your good and is properly positioning you.

You are a voice of the Kingdom, and God wants to use you in a mighty way. Just like when Esther came into King Xerxes house – not only was she prepared, but she was promoted. She was called to save her nation. She stepped up to the task and stood up to the king. She became a voice in her Kingdom. When she stepped up to the task, everything she needed was provided. She protected her people from Haman and became close with King Xerxes. She passed the test of loving the people more than herself.

Your promotion time is going to put you in places that you have never even imaged, with people that you have never seen before! It will cause you to press in for them and save your family, your workplace, and your nation!

Embrace your divine connections! Get excited that God is properly positioning you! He is getting you ready to minister to the people that will show up in your life in 2022. You will have the resources you need to complete the task.

January 2022 is also a time of double glory. You are walking in the glory – you are a glory carrier! I know that God will reveal things to you like He has been revealing to me. I know that He is preparing you for greater influence. Don’t allow your adversaries to push you back. Stay the course and continue to press into God.

There is a greater release of finances coming to you. 2 Corinthians 9:6 says, “He who soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly, and he who soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.” Here we see that when you sow bountifully in the spirit, with the Word of God or with blessing, it will return bountifully to you. But if you sow sparingly, it will return sparingly. Choose to sow bountifully today.

Share this with a friend, and let them know that they have been properly positioned for promotion!

December 7th, 2021

I’m so excited for this time of year because you are in a time of promotion! Psalms 75:6 says, “For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south, but God is the Judge: He putteth down one, and setteth up another.”

Now is your time to be set up! Esther was taken in the month of Tebeth, which is this month, and placed in the house of King Ahasuerus (Esther 2:16). She went from being prepped for her destiny to actually walking it out. I believe this will be your story too!

God wants you walking out your destiny this month. He wants you to begin putting your hand to the plow. STEP IT UP! God has set you up, and He is putting you in proper position to walk out your destiny before Him. He has elevated you. You are promoted!

Choose today to walk in confidence by faith. You are going to carry that into the Gregorian calendar year of 2022.

Do you know that God has great things in store for you? He is using you in a mighty way to bless other and to save others. What you are being promoted to do is going to make a difference for the kingdom of God.

Be encouraged! Shut out any hindering voices that might be telling you otherwise. As a prophet of the Lord, I’m telling you today to walk out your promotion in faith! It’s a very special time and season. God wants to use YOU in a very special way.

Let me pray for you to have the faith to walk in the promotion that you have been given:

Father, I praise and thank You for my friend today. They are rising to the levels that You are setting before them. They are seated with You in heavenly places. And they have been properly positioned for the new year of 2022. Thank You, Lord, for fully equipping them with Your Word, with Your voice today. They will go forth and minister and stand fast in the confessions of their faith. They will move forward in the plan, purpose and destiny that You have called them to. I know that their destiny will bring salvation to many. May they hold fast. May they stand firm in confidence of what You have done for us and how You have raised us up so that we may walk in Your power and be a voice in Your Kingdom, amen.

Share this with a friend today and bless them. Let them know that God has properly positioned and promoted them in this season. Encourage them to walk it out!

November 29th, 2021

The Month of Tevet begins Friday December 3 at sundown and is the tenth month on the Hebrew religious calendar and the fourth month on the civil calendar. This word Tevet is from the root “Tov” which means “Good”. Tevet is unique in that it begins with the Festival of Dedication called Hanuakkah still in process until Monday December 6. It is also a month where we begin to walk out our promotion. Promotion and miracles came to us all in November during the Month of Kislev but in the month of Tevet you begin to carry it out before the Gregorian New year of 2022 begins. It is also proved by your adversaries in that they confirm the promotion by either speaking poorly of you or attacking you in some way. In this month of Tevet we also remember Queen Esther was chosen as Queen and stepped into her duties. This Month of Tevet you too will step into destiny! “So Esther was taken to King Ahasuerus to his royal palace in the tenth month which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign.“ (Esther 2:16) You will leave behind certain structures this month and take on new ones so you can carry out ruling and reigning well in 2022.

We are living in an exciting time! We have stepped into a season where “tests of promotion” are happening. The Lord is preparing you for what He wants to do in you during the brand-new year of 2022. He is bringing you into a new season of great blessings!

Maybe you have been feeling as though the Lord is encouraging you to take a leap of faith. Maybe you have been under attack in different areas of your life. Whatever the case, know that God wants to promote you, but first you need to press into Him and spend quality time with Him. This will empower you to push past the pressure of your situation. It’s important that you know that God is testing you for promotion. Knowing this will make the test easier to bear.

“Tests of promotion” help us to learn and better understand our identities in Christ. They bring knowledge that we can stand on, a knowledge of the authority we are walking in and what the Lord has called us to do. This knowledge can catapult our lives into the next season.

Why would God be doing this right now? Because in just a month, the calendar will turn over to a new year. God is bringing you to a good land, a good season, a good place, a place of blessing. He is positioning you now to stand in faith and walk out your identity in Christ just as Esther did when she stood on behalf of her people, the Jews against the plot of evil Haman. Her cousin Mordecai challenged her in

Esther 4:13-14 when he said to her, “Esther, ‘Do not imagine that you in the king’s palace can escape any more than all the Jews.  ‘For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?’”

Our destiny can be accomplished when we recognize God’s goodness and faithfulness beyond the odds or even our adversaries. Let us keep  the heart of David when no matter our adversaries we respond as he did in Psalm 27:11-14,

“Teach me Your way, O LORD, And lead me in a level path Because of my foes.  Do not deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries, For false witnesses have risen against me, And such as breathe out violence.  I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.  Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.”

Wait on the Lord and remain righteous and in prayer. Jesus is your advocate as you are being  promoted.  He is moving  you into a  special position during this time of promotion before the new Gregorian calendar year of 2022. Remember the  Lord’s promise when He says for Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

The emphasis is on the “I”. These are God’s plan for you and they will look nothing like the  plan’s He has for someone else but be conscious to fulfill those  plans for destiny with eagerness and humility.

I would like to pray for you today..

Father, I praise You and thank You right now in the mighty name of Jesus. Increase the faith of my friend today. Help them to begin to step into a new realm of knowing who You are today and as we are close to ending 2021 and enter 2022. Father, I praise You that faith is increasing, that strength is increasing, that Your blessings are going to come forth. My friend reading this is going to step into pressing past the blockades and obstacles, and into their promotion. Lord, I give You glory, honor and praise. You are showing us what is in the way and providing us with strength for this new season. Thank You for the month of Tevet, that starts on December 3rd. Open my friend up to this month of goodness, and teach them to rest in Your goodness, in Jesus’ name, amen.

You are bringing forth blessing! Praise God!

The Lord spoke to me about Revelation 4:1, “After this I looked, and behold, a door was opened in heaven; and the first voice which I heard was, as it were, of a trumpet talking with me, which said, ‘Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter.’”

Here we see that the Lord inviting the Apostle John to come up into the heavenly realms through a door. The word “door” in this passage means portal. John saw a portal opened in the heavenly realms, and he was able to step through it. God is opening up heavenly portals for you, and He wants you to step through them as well!

Blessings come from the heavenly realms into the earthly realms. You may be thinking, How do I have access to them? You have access because Jesus shed His blood for the redemption of your sins. Once you have received Him as your Lord and Savior, you are now redeemed, have a relationship with the Father, and gain full access to heavenly things.

Revelations 4:2-3 says, “And immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne was set in Heaven, and One sat on the throne.  And He that sat thereon was to look upon like a jasper and a sardius stone; and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in appearance like unto an emerald.”

This rainbow in this passage was one of many colors with the strength of an emerald. It surrounded the throne of heaven with purified fire. You have unlimited access to this throne every day because you are seated with Christ is heavenly places. 

The Lord wants to bless you greatly. I know that He desires His words to shake your soul so that you will speak what God says into your earthly realms. He wants to change the environments around you on a daily basis. God wants to use you, but you HAVE to listen for the sound of His voice. His sound will shake you in such a way that you will feel motivated, encouraged, uplifted and ready to STEP into heavenly places.

You are called to be a voice in His Kingdom. I see that God is speaking to you, shaking you right now. He is saying, I need you to believe BY FAITH that you are seated with Me in heavenly places, that I am on the throne, and that you have an open portal to access Me at any time. When you believe, you release the blessings of heaven into the earth.” 

Today, my friend, I declare that your ears will be opened to hear His voice and the sound of the trumpet. You will hear what the Lord is saying to you, and you will be one who brings forth blessings from heavenly realms into the earth. I declare your eyes will be opened to see in the spirit, to see the open portals. You will pass through the door, or portal, into heaven.

Share this with a friend who needs to know that they have access to the Father and heavenly things at any time.

Praise the Lord! God is doing amazing things during this month of miracles. He wants you to prosper, increase and have multiplication in your life.

At this time many years ago, the Maccabees defeated the Syrian-Greek army after they destroyed the Temple. After the fight, the Maccabees found a small vile of oil. Typically, an oil vile would contain only enough oil for one day’s burn, but this oil burned in the Temple for 8 days! It was a miracle!

The Lord has been speaking to me that not only will this be a season of miracles for you, but it will be a time for you to begin to flourish and prosper. 

I used to pray, “Father, just give me increase. How can I be more of a blessing to the body of Christ? How do I step into that place of really bringing forth fruit?” The Lord always took me back to Psalms 1:1-3. Let’s focus on what that scripture says,

“How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.”

Why is this so important? Because the only way to increase and prosper every day is to position yourself to know more of the Word of God. We must take time to memorize the Word of God, speak the Word of God, and work the Word of God in your life.

Did you know that Jesus is the Word made flesh? In John 1:14 it says, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

You see, if you want to be a person who brings forth the blessings and fruit, you have to know Him more. You have to know His Word more.  You are a blessing when you delight yourselves in Jesus, the Word of God.

When you are growing in your relationship with Christ and meditating, constantly repeating, His Word, then your faith increases and turns into action. Action produces more fruit and grows your spirit.

Maybe you have trouble studying or reading the Word, or you’re not able to position yourself to receive from the Word.  I break that off your life right now in the mighty name of Jesus! I decree that you will begin to read the Word, be able to meditate on it, understand it, and live by it – starting today.

Purpose today to put behind you the ways of the flesh and live a healthy and prosperous life! Before you know it, you will actually be bringing forth fruit from the Word. You will be like an oak of righteousness planted by the rivers of Living Waters, producing much fruit!

Share this with a friend who needs to know the importance of meditating on God’s Word.

Abide in the joy of the Lord! We’ve entered the month of Kislev, a miracle month! God is stepping things up and calling forth things that are not as though they were!

It’s a time of joy! Do you know that joy flows when you truly realize you have been redeemed? Jesus bought this redemption when He died, was buried, and resurrected to save you from sin.

Nehemiah 8:10 says, “Then he said to them, ‘Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.’”

Praise the Lord! Joy is going to start flowing at an unbelievable pace in your life! Now is the time to step into this joy. Make it a point to remember where your strength comes from every day. Push past the grieving, destruction, sickness, difficulty or trial you may be facing. Purposefully declare that you have been redeemed and are sitting with Christ in heavenly places! 

When the Temple was destroyed, they were only able to find 1 bottle of oil. However, that 1 bottle lit the menorah for eight days! It was a miraculous oil that showed the light of the Lord in the Temple.

Did you know that you are the light of the world? You have been given joy as part of the oil of gladness? The joy of the Lord fills you so that His light can burst forth from you. 

Be encouraged! It is your season for the miraculous! Believe that you will begin to see the glory of the Lord. Double portion and double glory is here. It’s coming upon you, and miracles are beginning to flow in your life!

This overflow is the miracle oil, the anointing oil from heaven. It’s the oil that burns in the menorah, the Temple lamps, that brings forth the overwhelmingly beautiful light we see in the earth today. I declare the oil of heaven is coming upon you.

God is calling you to rejoice, to worship and serve Him only. He longs for you to come closer to His heart. He wants you to abide in Him. When you abide in Him, you will bear much fruit (John 15).

God is also calling you to obey Him commandments. When you do this, you show Him that you are joining with Him. Now the joy of the Lord is complete in you. You will walk in a greater level of joy!

Come on, warrior! By faith enter into the season of miracles! God is calling you to bring a fire and a voice to those who are still in darkness. Set them free with your joy!

Share this with a friend who needs to rekindle their joy.

Praise the Lord! “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!” (Psalms 107:2a) The power of redemption is upon your life!

Do you know you have been redeemed? Do you know that the Lord has a seat of habitation for you? Do you know that Jesus is your next of kin? That He is your Brother who ransomed you, and brought you back from death, hell and the grave? That you ascended with Him and are seated with Him in heavenly places?

Psalms 107:1-9 says, “O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy; And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south. They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in. Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses. And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation. Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

Take note: THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO! That is so important. Jesus is taking you to a city of habitation. That word “habitation” is the Hebrew word moshab, which means “a seat or sight in a place of dwelling.” The word “redeemed” is the Hebrew word gawal, which means “to redeem as in kinship, a next of kin who bought back a relative’s property, an avenger.”

The Lord is our Avenger. He shed His blood on Calvary that you might be saved, healed, and redeemed! Redemption means that everything has been bought back – even right now! I know you are looking out there thinking, “Nothing looks right in my life, neighborhood, or nation.”

But BE ENCOURAGED! It doesn’t matter if it looks right – God said, “It has been redeemed!” He has taken you out from the toiling and wandering. He has properly positioned you in a seat of habitation and satisfied your soul and filled you with goodness. The word “goodness” is the Hebrew word, tob. It means “prosperity, wealth, and favor.”

Through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, He has brought us back to a place of goodness, prosperity, wealth and favor! Yes, I’m speaking to you right now in the mighty name of Jesus!

Enter into His joy today because you are favored by God. It doesn’t matter what your checkbook says. ALL THINGS have been redeemed, and that’s the truth!

Declare and decree in the name of Jesus that what He has done for you has already taken place, that everything you owed has been resolved, every need you have has been provided for, and all provision, protection, acceptance is yours! You can be a game changer by faith and turn things around in your life. Lack and poverty can be turned into prosperity, wealth and favor.

Stop seeing things from your current circumstances. See it from the view that the Lord has given you in your seat of habitation.

God wants you to learn how to expand your thinking. He wants you to know that you can live without limits, a limitless life.  

Adam and Eve were given specific instructions and boundaries by the Lord. They were told, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth” (Genesis 1:28).

The Garden of Eden was self-sustaining, lush, and they had everything they needed. They were all set up for increase. There was just one boundary. They were told, “Do not touch the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” It was a healthy boundary that God set in place. However, the enemy confused them and they chose to disobey God’s instructions and touch the forbidden fruit. Adam and Eve were kicked out of the garden, and they entered a realm of  limitations.

Through a relationship with Jesus and confession of sin, time is redeemed. You can now live a life of redemption, a life of limitlessness. It’s like being placed back into the Garden of Eden!

We gain dominion back through what Jesus has done for us. He has redeemed the time, and it has now been lengthened and expanded. The dominion that the Lord gave to Adam and Eve, He has now given to you! It’s time to step into this dominion and walk in His authority. 

Determine to take time in this month of Cheshvan to make sure you are being fruitful, multiplying, increasing. Examine yourself. Are you fulfilling God’s plan for you? Or do you find that you are full of anxiety, confusion, and constantly under attack? If you’re not aligned with God’s command to be fruitful and multiply, simply ask the Lord to forgive you and to reposition you with Him.

RISE UP! Begin to take dominion! God is saying to you today, “It’s time to take dominion again so you can live without limits!” When you take dominion, you will put a protective boundary around yourself. The enemy will be restricted in your life, and your fruit will grow quickly!

Share this with a friend. Choose to live with the confidence that you are seated with Christ in heavenly places! Here, there is rest, peace and authority.

October 19th, 2021

The Lord is bringing cleansing rains, multiplication and increase during this month of Cheshvan.  The Lord is saying, “I’m cleansing and I’m bringing forth increase in the earth. I want you to participate with Me for increase.”

We hear God say something similar to Adam and Eve in Genesis 1:18, “God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’”

This verse applies to you too. This is exactly what God wants you to do! He wants you to begin to step out and start ruling over the earth. He wants you to be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth! He gave you kratos power (dominion power and rulership). You are called to bring forth life!

Those who are life-givers WILL produce fruit. God is the one bringing the fruit. New doors of opportunity are going to open for you because this is harvest time. New things are about to multiply! They’re going to break forth, but expect that you may be asked to jump through some hoops first. You may be called to step out into unknown areas in faith.

He wants you to be ready. You have everything inside you to complete the tasks at hand. We need to ask God, “What is the strategy? How do I rule over this thing? How do I do this so I can bring about the increase and multiplication?”

Right now, you are seeing a double portion take place. God is saying, “Begin now to strategize with Me.” Abundance is taking place right now in finances, restoration, His presence, miracles, deliverance, and your family.

God loves relationship. He loves to be in a relationship with you. You will see yourself sowing and reaping in the same season, and autumn and spring rains will both fall! Yes! God is doing something really mighty in the month of October!

Let me pray for you: “Lord, I just praise You and thank You for my friend. Thank You for showing, revealing, and opening up their spiritual eyes, ears, smell, taste and touch to the new opportunities that are coming. Lord, help bring the strategy of how to subdue, rule over, and multiply as You told Adam and Eve to do. Show them how You are blessing them and want them to be a leader in this area. I thank You that they are part of the dominion of life. Cause life to flow through their veins so they know that they have the power to step out and begin to subdue the earth in their home environment and in the nations. Hallelujah! In Jesus’ name, amen.”

This is such a blessed time. Today, purpose to step out, use your faith, move forward, walk in dominion and be a blessing to those around you. Share this with a friend who needs to know that they are in a double portion time!
