Attitude of Redemption for 2022

During this month of first fruits the Lord spoke to me and said, “Tell My people to have an attitude of redemption.” Having an attitude of redemption means that you accept you are fully redeemed and everything around you is redeemed. Everything in the earth today has been fully redeemed by the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. He has covered all things in the eternal realms. You may be experiencing difficulties, obstacles, blockages, offenses or sicknesses, but I’m here to tell you that no matter what you see with your natural eyes, you are still called to have an attitude of redemption! 

Our viewpoint is supposed to be different than the world’s as a Kingdom citizen. We are to see things as if they are complete with the fullness of Christ in every moment. When we see something that is broken or lacking in the natural, we are to choose to see the fullness of Christ in that situation. This is living by faith and not by sight!  

The earth realms are fact but they aren’t truth. There is a difference between fact and truth. The fact is : I see this disorder, the misalignment, the lies, the sin, the sickness, the lack and poverty in the world. But the truth of the matter comes only from what Jesus Christ says about the situation. 

You are fully redeemed in the Lord. That means the brokenness you may be experiencing has been fully redeemed, and as you continue to walk Christ’s way, you will open up a portal that will release the blessings of heaven into the earth. 

It’s critical that we as Christ’s body learn to walk as mature Kingdom citizens. When we are mature, we are able to walk in the fullness of God, His completeness, His shalom peace, with nothing missing and nothing broken. I want to see you step into that place where there is nothing missing and there is nothing broken. I know it looks like brokenness everyday, but the “look” is fact and not the truth. 

 

Galatians 3:13-14 (KJV) reads, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

We died, buried, resurrected, and ascended with Christ. The blessings of heaven are ours and our lives should reflect that. Our souls are being transformed daily into this truth. Let us make it a mandate in our lives to know that we have His Spirit by faith to lead us down the path of redemption. 

 

2 Corinthians 5:7 (KJV) says, “Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”

This means daily we are to have a walk of redemption. This will wash clean everything in our lives and set us on a path of exercising maturity in all situations we are faced with. I know God has great plans for you in 2022. It is time to walk in an attitude of redemption and far surpass your current situations with this faith attitude, as the redeemed of the Lord, they say so. 

Psalm 107:1-2 (KJV) reads, “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” 

God is redeeming you even now from the clutches of the enemy. Give God the glory by believing Him now as you maintain an attitude of redemption in the midst of the chaos and pain you are experiencing. He has redeemed your situation already and you will see the manifestation in the natural. 



Some people have asked me, “How do you release heaven to earth? How do you operate in the ascension mindset? How do you live in the prosperity realms and not in the poverty realms? How do you work in miracles, signs and wonders? How do you release the glory?” Maybe you have these same questions. I’ll tell you how I do it: I obey the Word of the Lord, regardless of what I see. You can only be a glory carrier and release the glory when you properly position yourself and see from God’s perspective. I walk in the way of redemption. I rest in the fact, He did it already, so my job now by faith is just watch Him manifest it in the earth. 

 

Let me pray for you to grab these truths.  Lord, help us to exercise our faith daily and walk in a greater understanding of how you have redeemed all things. We are called to be world changers and history makers, and you have given us all the tools necessary for this blessing. Help us to be the example to others of a life of redemption. You showed us the way when you walked the earth, let us show others the way. Give me revelation in this season of how to walk in the way of redemption so I can carry your glory to my home, neighborhood, city, state, nation and the nations. Amen.

December 28, 2021

Hello, dear friend! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are excitedly preparing for the New Year! As 2021 comes to a close this week, know that God is giving you a divine set up for 2022. 

Take inventory of this year. Start from January 1, 2021, up until today. You have had joy, tears, prosperity, and poverty in areas. For most, it’s been quite a year – not only individually but for our families and our nation! We have all had to deal with some hard things. If you are ending this year discouraged and overwhelmed, please allow the Lord to minister to you and comfort you. Don’t allow your trauma to dictate the vision that God has for you in 2022. See with clear eyes!

Isaiah 42:9 says, “Behold, the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things before they spring forth. I proclaim them to you.” God has great things in store for you.

God has a vision for you in 2022. Take time to seek Him, and He will reveal it. Once He does, write the vision down and make it plain (Habakkuk 2). This way you will accomplish the vision God has for you.

Also, take time this week to ask the Lord, “What happened in 2021 that changed me, and what can I change in preparation for 2022? What are You preparing me for? How can I get myself ready for what’s coming? What is Your vision for me in 2022?” A wise person inquires of the Lord. He knows everything the enemy is plotting, and only He can prepare you for the road ahead.

Let me pray over you right now:

Lord, I thank you in the mighty name of Jesus, that You are speaking to my friend. They are opening up their heart to see things as You see them – not through the eyes of trauma or disappointment or poverty, but through the eyes of Your Spirit. Enlighten their hearts and open their spiritual eyes so that they might see You, Your glory, Your beauty, Your majesty and Your plan for them in 2022. Heal the wounds 2021 caused for them, and launch them into 2022 with a new vision, new goals, and a new position in You. Your Word is a lamp unto our feet, Father. Help my friend walk in step with You on the path that You have commissioned them to walk. Help them to walk in the footsteps of Jesus as they enter the new year. I give you all the glory because of Your Son Jesus Christ, who died on the cross, was buried, resurrected, and ascended so that we all may have the fullness of Christ in us and be seated with You in heavenly places.  Let us live that out in 2022. In Jesus’ mighty name, amen.

The Month of Tevet Fulfill Your Promotion

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. 

Your Territory is Enlarging Now

We have now begun the Feast of Tabernacles. It comes in the autumn after the start of the Hebrew New Year, Rosh Hashanah, and the Day of Atonement. It’s also known as the Feast of Booths, the Feast of Sukkot and the Feast of Ingathering.

 

The Feast of Tabernacles is a very special celebration. In Exodus 34:22-24 (NIV) we read, “Celebrate the Festival of Weeks with the firstfruits of the wheat harvest, and the Festival of Ingathering at the turn of the year. Three times a year all your men are to appear before the Sovereign Lord, the God of Israel.  I will drive out nations before you and enlarge your territory, and no one will covet your land when you go up three times each year to appear before the Lord your God.” 

 

Here we see the Lord’s specific instructions on how the Israelites are to celebrate the Feast of Weeks and Feast of Tabernacles and how three times a year their men were to appear before the Lord God of Israel. 

 

For you, it is also very important to the Lord that you come to Him during this time. It is important that you present an offering to Him and bring Him a blessing. Most of all, He wants you to give your heart and recognize that He is Jehovah Jireh, your Provider. In this way you will give Him honor, glory and praise. 

 

This feast is also a joyful time of celebration. It’s a time to have a festival in your heart as much as physically around you. Let’s read Deuteronomy 16:13-15 (NIV). It says, “Celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles for seven days after you have gathered the produce of your threshing floor and your winepress. Be joyful at your festival—you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, and the Levites, the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns. For seven days celebrate the festival to the Lord your God at the place the Lord will choose. For the Lord your God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be complete.” 

 

Jesus Christ makes your joy complete! When you confess Him as Lord and Savior, you know that the One who sprinkled His blood on the mercy seat provides for you. It is then that your joy is complete!

 

I want you to know this and to be encouraged during this season. The Lord is properly positioning you to step into this season full of joy. It truly is an exciting time!

 

Did you know that the Jewish people make something called a “sukkah” as a way of remembering their history during the Feast of Tabernacles? It has at least three walls and is framed with wood and canvas, then on top is cut branches and leaves for a roof that they could see out of. This “sukkah,” or booth, helps them remember their ancestors’ 40 years in the wilderness of Sinai and how isolated they were from the rest of the world. It also reminds them how the presence of God dwelt in their midst, how He covered them daily with His cloud, and how at night He warmed them with His fiery presence. Wow! Amazing! God is so good! Their clothes didn’t even wear out, and no matter what they faced or if they felt vulnerable, they were covered! 

 

Even in times that you feel vulnerable or weak, know that the Lord will come and bless you with His overwhelming presence. He tabernacles among you. 

 

Jesus is the Word and in John  1:14 (TLV) we read, “And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. We looked upon His glory, the glory of the one and only from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

 

Your Heavenly Father loves you greatly! He wants you to recognize that this is your season of joy and blessing. When you believe Him to be your Provider in all things, He is able to come in and properly position you and enlarge your territory! As He stretches and advances you, know that He is your provider. The joy of the Lord is your strength!

 

Purpose in your heart to bless the Lord by giving an offering to your favorite ministry, your church or whatever you feel called to do in honor of the Lord. 

Double Glory In Hebrew Year 5782

The Month of Tishrei is the first month of the civil calendar year and the seventh month of the ecclesiastical year on the Hebrew calendar.  It is also called the Head of the Year or the “month of beginning”. It starts on Tuesday, September 6 at sundown and is a celebration called Rosh Hashanah or  Feast of Trumpets. It is the beginning of Hebrew New Year 5782 which means 5,782 days since the creation of Adam and Eve. 

Tishrei is a Hebrew month in which three feasts take place which are the Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement and Feast of Tabernacles. On Rosh Hashanah, the first day of Tishrei, what is called the Ten Days of Awe begins, which goes until Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement. The Days of Awe are 10 days of repentance, prayer, fasting and cleansing to prepare one’s heart for the Day of Atonement which starts Wednesday, September 15 at sundown until Thursday, September 16 at sundown and is the Highest Holy Day of the Year to the Jews. It is a day  we who  believe in Jesus as Messiah remember that He sprinkled His blood on the mercy seat in the heavenly tabernacle.

This is followed by the third feast which is Feast of Tabernacles or Sukkot which begins sundown on Monday, September 20- sundown on Monday, September 27. This feast is highlighted for the Jews as they remember building booths or shelter when the Lord called them to live in the wilderness. For those who believe in Jesus, we remember that Jesus tabernacles among us and is our provider. 

Each feast is a recognized appointed time set aside by God where we come to meet Him.  

God has given me a special word for Hebrew year 5782 that I want to share with you. The numbers 5-7-8-2 are biblical numbers that mean-  grace,  perfection,  new beginnings and double portion. God has shared with me that this year  we’re going to see double glory come into the earth.  In Habakkuk 2:14 (KJV), the scripture reads, “For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”

The Hebrew word knowledge is da’ath which is broken down to the word yada. Yada means to know as in seeing, as in recognition through a variety of senses, as in observation and care, and even friend, famous, kinsfolk or kinsman. We all know a kinsman redeemer who gave His life that we might live, that is Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. In other words, when the earth is going to be filled, it’s going to be filled to fullness with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord which comes from a knowledge of Jesus, as our redeemer. He is one who has saved us from our sins and reconciled us to relationship with the Father by His shed blood on the cross. 

That word glory in the Hebrew is the word kabod, which means the weighty presence of God, splendor, and honor. This is broken down to the word kabad which means weighty in a good sense, numerous, rich, honorable, abounding as in reference to nobles or nobility. We will know the fullness of our kinsman redeemer’s weighty presence and His splendor and majesty as we come to know His nobility and bow to it in the earth realms. 

As Habakkuk 2:14 continues it says, “ as the waters cover the sea.” This means we will know His splendor and majesty as vast as waters covering the sea. That word sea in the Hebrew is the word yam which means to roar, as a noisy surf. In Florida, where I am from, we have wide beaches on both coasts of the state. Have you ever stood on the sand and looked to the far right or far left of where you are standing and see how far the beach goes and how much water is ready to rush in and pound the sand. When the waters rise, they flood the sand, and as each wave hits the sand a roar is let out by the noisy surf. The waters fill to overflowing. This year in 5782, I believe the Lord is filling the earth with His glory and God is sending a roar on the earth that will be likened to a noisy surf hitting the sand.  This is for those who have ears to hear, a mighty sound of the glory of the King of Kings is coming forth. His nobility and majesty will be experienced by us in a greater way. Yes, the earth is in a desperate place and our culture is weak and overrun, but we will grow in the knowledge of our kinsman redeemer and all He has done so we can walk in double glory in 5782. We have seen some glory in the earth, but I believe as the people of God really  connect with His heart for them, no matter their circumstances, they will step into a greater knowledge of the Lord and it will become a roar. 

I just want to pray for you because we’re entering into this Hebrew New Year of 5782. May you receive this new year a double portion of grace, perfection, new beginnings, and double portion of every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies. May a double portion of His spirit, a double portion of His glory come upon you so that you will be equipped to be a glory carrier into the earth. As we the church become knowledgeable in these truths and as we grab a hold in our senses the Lord being our kinsmen Redeemer, we will begin to cover the earth with His glory as the waters cover the sea. We will roar with a sound that comes from all of us together united in His glory covering the earth. 

Double glory is coming in 5782. God is making a way!  He has prepared your heart to receive more and more of Him. Please share this good news with some people who need to hear it. Remember Christ in you is the hope of glory in the earth today and double glory is coming!  

 

Your Promotion Time Is Here

Promotion time is here! It began on August 1st, and it will continue until August 15th. August is the eighth month on the Gregorian calendar and the number “eight” means new beginnings. On the Hebrew calendar, this period covers the last week of Av and the first week of Elul, the last month of year 5781. It is also the beginning of the rebuilding time in the Season of Teshuvah or repentance which culminates at Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, for the Jewish people, which is the Highest Holy Day of the year starting on sundown September 15-September 16. You see in the month of Av, during the Three Weeks of Sorrow from July 27-July 18 many of you were crushed and pulverized in your hearts and bodies.  This is just like the temple of the Lord had been destroyed in history by the Romans and King Nebuchadnezzar. If you felt crushed and pulverized in your body, which is the temple of the Lord,  you are now coming out into your time of promotion and God is cleansing your temple and rebuilding it in the month of Elul so you can carry double glory at Rosh Hashanah on sundown September 6 , the new Hebrew year of 5782. 

After you went through testing and trials, and walked through the Three Weeks of Sorrow. This was all a time of transition. Transition can be hard, especially when your identity is rocked and you question who you are and who God is. But this reaction to transition is normal. Many heroes of the faith experienced the same at one point, even after they had seen great signs or miracles.

There was a man named Gideon, who found himself in this very situation. Judges 6:11-12 says, “And there came an angel of the LORD, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash the Abiezrite; and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the wine press to hide it from the Midianites. And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him and said unto him, ‘The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valor.’”

Powerful! The Lord sent an angel to Gideon even though his identity at the moment was not one of power and might. Gideon was feeling depressed. The Israelites were under oppression. Then God came! Even though Gideon was questioning the Lord after all the amazing things He had done, and here was His angel sitting under a tree! In God’s love and mercy He sent the message through an angel to call Gideon, “thou mighty man of valor.” God gave Him a new identity!

Maybe you feel oppressed today. You’re questioning the trials and testing; you’re asking the Lord, “Where are the miracles?” Be encouraged! God is going to build a new foundation in you! A new temple of God is emerging where glory will be present!

When God came to Gideon, He specifically spoke about how Gideon’s identity had to change. He had to stop identifying with loss, tragedy and oppression and begin to see himself as the mighty man of valor he was called to be! If he was going to come out in victory, he was going to have to renew his mind and thoughts to align with God’s declaration.

The same is true for you. Now is the time of change! If you’re going to transition into God’s strategies of promotion, you have to start seeing yourself as God sees you. Your identity is in Him and Him alone! You’ve got to start seeing things as God sees them. He is rebuilding you now for double glory!

Remember when the angel called Gideon a “mighty man of valor?” The word “valor” in Hebrew is the word “khalil,” and it means the glory of the Lord, the wealth and resources of God. So basically, the angel was saying to Gideon, “Hey, mighty man of valor. Hey, man with great resources who carries the Lord’s glory.” Praise the Lord! 

If you’re feeling like you aren’t carrying the glory of the Lord right now, all you have to do is allow your identity to begin to shift and transition for this promotion time. You are going to carry more of the glory of the Lord when you find yourself in Him! Your new identity in Christ as a person of “valor in Him” is your new foundation for your temple for the new Hebrew year!

I’m telling you right now that on September 6th, when the calendar turns over on Rosh Hashanah, the brand-new Hebrew year of 5782, you’re going to walk in double glory! Yes! Double glory! There is going to be a double explosion coming. Prepare yourself!

New Mantles Released From Heaven- Month of Tammuz

I saw glory angels releasing mantles this past week and they were being dropped on God’s people. They were flying through a portal in heaven to the earth, and bringing these mantles right to us so we can begin to get ready for what is coming in the fall season. 

 

A pre-promotion time is happening right now in the Spirit. The month of Tammuz which is the 4th month on the Hebrew ecclesiastical calendar and the 10th month on the Hebrew civil calendar  begins  sundown, Wednesday, June 9, 2021- sundown Friday, June 11, 2021. God is properly positioning you to receive more from heaven and step into more in the earth. He is revealing more of Himself. He is stretching His people and dispersing new mantles and garments – He’s got one for you! A mantle is a cloak or covering that surrounds you and comes from heaven. It is designed to set you and your anointing apart from others in the kingdom of God. It is geared to bring forth the unique assignment that God has called you to walk in the earth. You are a kingdom citizen and this mantle helps you operate in God’s kingdom doing His will in the earth. 

 

Remember how the Word says in Luke 2:52, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”  A portal has been opened, and wisdom is now pouring forth from heaven. You are growing in wisdom and stature in the heavenlies and earth spaces, which will turn into favor with God and man. These mantle assignments are coming forth, and things are going to rapidly change in your life. You will be walking in more wisdom, statute and favor as you try and understand this new mantle assignment God has for you and how to walk in it properly as we approach the new Hebrew New Year 5782, on Rosh Hashanah, September 6, 2021. 

 

Why is this preparation time important for you? I know you are being stretched and it appears you are being invited by God to something new, but you can’t quite put your finger on it. It’s to wear new garments and to take on new mantle assignments. This is a time of rejoicing, but also a time of transition. God is calling you to step out in ways that may be difficult or uncomfortable. It’s preparation for the real promotion time that will happen in August, right before we step into Rosh Hashanah. 

 

This new mantle will affect your identity just like it affected Elisha in 1 Kings 19:19 (NIV), “So Elijah went from there and found Elisha son of Shaphat. He was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen, and he himself was driving the twelfth pair. Elijah went up to him and threw his cloak around him.” Elijah’s act of distributing his cloak or mantle changed the course of Elisha’s life. He had to get a mental handle on the exchange. We read in 1 Kings 19:20-21 (NIV) the word says, “ Elisha then left his oxen and ran after Elijah. ‘Let me kiss my father and mother goodbye,’ he said, ‘and then I will come with you.’ “Go back,” Elijah replied. “What have I done to you?” So Elisha left him and went back. He took his yoke of oxen and slaughtered them. He burned the plowing equipment to cook the meat and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he set out to follow Elijah and became his servant.”

 

Your mantle will change your life as well! You will have to learn how to walk in  the new mantle. You will have to learn to walk away from old things, even things that are good to take on the new which is better but unfamiliar. You may have to say goodbye to ways you used to do things or even certain relationships of the past because the new is on the horizon.  You have just changed your clothes when you put on a new mantle. It is like wearing a tuxedo when you are used to wearing jeans. That is going to take a mind-shift for a while. However God will grow you in wisdom, stature and favor with Him and man in the earth, and you will be able to carry this mantle well by Rosh Hashanah. Then you will be running with your tuxedo on. 

 

Over the next 3 months, shift your mind to the Word of God. You will see that the eternal time frame has already been shifted because we are in the latter months of the springs rains which happen in the Hebrew months of Tammuz, Av, and Elul, and that is why these mantles are coming forth. God is giving you a little taste now so you can be ready for the bigger promotion in the fall! Today, purpose to position yourself on a strong foundation and be ready to receive great things from the Lord!

This Passover Experience Miraculous

On Saturday, March 13th, at sundown, we entered into Nisan, the first month of the Hebrew year, according to Exodus 12:2-3. This is the time during which the Lord spoke to Moses and the Israelites about preparing for the Passover. Passover this year starts on March 27th and ends on April 4th (Resurrection Sunday). We need to celebrate! He is alive! Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. He is our Passover Lamb. He died, was buried and resurrected to overcome sin, death and the grave so the curse over us would be broken.

The Lord is springing new things into action! March is the month to march forward like the Israelites did out of Egypt. The Lord led them out of Egypt and took them across the Red Sea. They physically left Egypt, and then they had to shed the poverty mindset of Egypt’s bondage. This is why they were not able to go into the Promised Land for 40 years, but God was with them in the desert. He allowed them to see, feel and experience aspects of heaven while they were there so that they would build their identity in Him alone.

One of the ways the Lord built their identity in Him was through His miraculous provision. The Lord has a special word for you for this season, and it’s found in Deuteronomy 8:2-4 (NASB): And you shall remember all the way which the Lord your God has led you in the wilderness these forty years, in order to humble you, putting you to the test, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.  And He humbled you and let you go hungry, and fed you with the manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, in order to make you understand that man shall not live on bread alone, but man shall live on everything that comes out of the mouth of the Lord Your clothing did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years.”

Did you see that? The Lord gave them manna, their clothes did not wear out and their feet did not swell at all during this time! The supernatural entered the natural while they were journeying those 40 years. The Israelites had entered into a realm in which things did not decay, their mantles stayed, their feet were able to withstand, their bodies were able to submit – and they received! They were completely covered and surrounded by heaven even in the midst of what they were going through. And just like they began to understand the supernatural in their wilderness season, you can too. 

Let me break it down even further:

They were fed supernatural manna every day. Manna was little honey flaked crackers or bread and was white like coriander seed that appeared on the ground. This food from heaven fed their natural bodies enough only for one day. Through it, the Lord was teaching them to trust and believe in Him, and that His provision comes directly from heaven. Manna means “what is it?” It’s the bread of life. It’s the Word of God every day that sustains you and enables you to walk in heavenly realms on earth.  

Their clothes did not wear out. Clothing in Hebrew means their mantle. In other words, your mantle will not wear out when you walk in heavenly realms on the earth. It will be strong. It will not be torn away from you, as it is a part of who you are. The Lord wants you to know that the mantle He has given you is a covering that will last.

Their feet did not swell. Feet in Hebrew is the word regel which means to endure, journey, possess, time. It means to walk along and a type of treading. See, it’s like putting one foot in front of the other. As you walk, you possess time, you endure and you move forward. Your feet will last and not decay or swell. You are not going to become overwhelmed with the walk. Everywhere you walk, you will possess what is before you!  A foot possesses the time. There is only one thing that can refer to the possession of eternal time and that is when we are walking in the heavenly realms on earth.

This is very important as you are entering into a time of great awakening and global glory: The Lord is saying, “I am going to cause My people to walk in the heavenly realms on earth.” You are seated with Christ in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). You are a citizen of heaven. You must operate on the earth from the heavenly perspective. 

The good news is that NOW we can walk in heaven on earth. That is why Jesus speaks to us and says, “Ask that heaven be done on earth.” The phrase in the earth means like a movement of heaven actually making its place in the earth realm. In earth in the Greek means superimposition of time, place and order; a distribution over and above a place of rest and direction. So when we ask for heaven to manifest in the earth realms, like Jesus taught in the Lord’s prayer (Matthew 6:9-13), what we are saying is, “Lord, superimpose heaven on the earth. Distribute rest and peace.”

In heaven means a fixed position of place, time and state of rest. When we are walking in heavenly realms, heaven comes upon us like a supernatural covering. By faith we believe this; we understand it to be true not only because of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, but also because of His ascension. When He ascended, He sat next to the Father, and we are now seated in heavenly places with Him. That realm of heaven is ours in the earth.

I believe you’re going to see more signs, miracles and wonders coming forth than you ever imagined. The glory of the Lord is being revealed. I was in Oklahoma last weekend and I saw the glory like I had never seen before. Everyone was healed, even family members who were not present when we prayed for them and dispatched angelic hosts to bring healing. God is allowing His Spirit to come upon you. You are beginning to receive incredible grain from heaven, incredible revelation about walking in heavenly realms on the earth. Your clothes won’t wear out, your feet won’t swell, you’re going to have all the provision you need. You are wrapped in a heavenly realm. Blinders are being removed right now, in the name of Jesus. You are about to see the supernatural every day! You are about to engage with God right where you are, walking beyond time in eternity, a place where every need is met! It’s going to be an amazing season!

In Your Test of Promotion You Will Prevail

Have you been experiencing spiritual warfare lately? Does it feel like there are blockades and obstacles in your way? Have things been difficult? Listen: This is happening because you have just been promoted! 

Promotion time is here! On Thursday, February 11th, at sundown we entered a brand-new Hebrew calendar month, Adar. Adar means completion and is known as the month of joy. It is the 12th month on the ecclesiastical calendar which started at Passover in 2020. During this month, the Jewish people celebrate Purim. Purim this year is sundown, Thursday February 25- Friday February 26, when the Jewish people remember how Esther went boldly before the king to share Haman’s evil plan for the annihilation of the Jewish people. Esther risked her life to properly position the Jews and their nation to be saved. God gave her favor and a plan. Just like God prepared, promoted and put her in a place for,  “such a time as this,” He is doing the same for you, for the purpose and destiny that He has called you to. 

Mordecai, Esther’s cousin told her about what would happen to the Jewish people if she did not speak up. These were the words that invited Esther to her place of promotion. They were words to save her nation. We are never truly promoted until we are faced with a situation where we have to stand for righteousness. There are steps to promotion -and Esther’s first was coming into the palace and being purified for a year before seeing the King. The second promotion was when she was asked to stand in her position to save her people. Your promotion is not just about you it is about others too.

Esther 4:12-14 reads, “When Esther’s words were reported to Mordecai,  he sent back this answer: ‘Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape.  For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?’”

We need to remember the importance of our promotion as we see the increase in spiritual warfare and our response to it. The enemy always wants to push back whenever we get promoted. Let’s not forget that in January we gave God our first fruits and consecrated ourselves before Him. He brought us to capacity and expanded us upon a strong foundation. You’ve gone to the next level! This is why you feel the friction in the spirit realms. You have been given a greater responsibility then you have ever had before. 

God has properly positioned you, not to sit around like royals, but to minister to a remnant. He has given you a sphere of influence for you to use the power He has given you to make changes. You must open your mouth! God has given you a voice and His Word. When you speak, it’s like a spark of God releases and ignites things. You can change a nation! 

Promotion comes with a test that proves we walked into the promotion. The enemy is prepared to convince you that this promotion didn’t happen, that you’re not good enough or that you couldn’t possibly be called to do this. He tries to get involved in the things of God and the progression of the Lord. He tries to push it back by bringing hinderances.

Let’s go back to Esther. What did she do? Esther 4:15-16 (NIIV) reads, “Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai:  ‘Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.’”

She asked her people to fast and pray for her for three days and nights. They joined in agreement that she would obtain the strength needed to go before the king. If she didn’t go, she and her people would perish. The secret to getting past the pushback of the enemy is to step into the heavenly places. We must operate in the joy of the Lord. Remember you’re a citizen of heaven and the joy of the Lord is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10).

In His presence there is fullness of joy. That is where you need to position yourself: in His presence. Get in that secret place with the Lord and let Him build you up. Fasting and praying will discipline you to sit with the Lord and hear Him. He will give you strategies and show you how to navigate the sphere of influence He called you to. Our God is forever moving and does not stagnate. We have to keep up with Him!

The Lord will promote you many times to next levels. Two times of year there are regular times of fulfillment of the promotion, those are at Passover and Rosh Hashanah, the 2 main Hebrew New Years.  God usually starts adjusting us for the promotion about four to six weeks beforehand. Why? Our God is cyclical. He works in cycles. God wants you to walk in the totality of each promotion for six months. This brings strength. It helps you stay in proper position, keeps your joy steady, and allows you carry His power until He turns the calendar again with a new promotion. 

So be encouraged! You have stepped into a new season, a new time and place where God is using you in a mighty way. Do not shrink back. The righteous do not shrink back; they live by faith. No matter the opposition, press forward. The enemy cannot take your promotion. There is joy in His presence, and that is what it’s going to take for you to fulfill your purpose and destiny. 

 

In February Expansion Is Here

God took the month of January to expand our souls for greater increase in territory and an acceleration of our destiny this year! He did this through increasing our identity in Him as He expanded our spirit, our soul, our temple and our capacity. Now as God expanded us in our souls, we will now step into a larger sphere of influence, greater regions and territories. In 2021, we will have tremendous growth as we step into this expanse. 

3 John 1:2 says “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” As our soul grows in capacity our territory of influence grows.

January is a spiritual foundation month. It’s a time we positioned ourselves properly for the year ahead. I know you were already praying and fasting, but have you also taken the time to give? Proverbs 3:9-10 says, “Honor the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.”  Lay the right foundation for yourself, because I see in the spirit financial provision is coming to the faithful.

Jesus is the firstfruit of many brothers. We are the “many brothers,” and we put Him first by setting time to pray, fast, give and consecrate ourselves unto to Him. You see, when you make yourself holy, everything you touch shall be holy. “For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches” (Romans 11:16). 

Greater territories are coming to you in 2021 as you purify and consecrate yourself, as you continue in a deep abiding relationship with the Lord. Your expansion shall be great! Allow the Lord to continue to minister to you about your upcoming transitions to greater increase and multiplication. Set your foundation on God, for He is the Master Builder. He is preparing your temple, correcting, aligning and repositioning things in your life for a season of victory! 

God is building divine relationships and making new alignments so that acceleration can take place and you can enter the new territories He has for you in 2021. I see streams that will quickly bring you to your purpose and destiny. Are you ready for what is coming? 

Every blessing I have ever received is because I practiced giving God my first fruits (praying, fasting and financial giving) at the beginning of each year. You have to have your heart right, you have to be consecrated in prayer and fasting, you have to offer the Lord your heart and your financial first fruits, to remain in the right place. These acts lead to a strong and correctly laid foundation. Will you build a strong foundation? Remember, when the root is holy, the branches are holy. When the first fruit is holy, the lump is also holy (Romans 11:16). 

God wants our first of everything, and everything else grows from that point. When we see and understand this, we come to know that God is building a foundation in us. Are you sensing that God wants to start establishing new relationships for you? Know this! The Lord is giving you a divine set up. Just begin to move into those places.

Acceleration is coming. God has strong relationships that will help establish your destiny. As God properly positions you, you will begin to see a major acceleration. God is connecting you with people, divine alignments, and giving you new territories. The Lord showed me that many of these new alignments aren’t temporary; they are structured, permanent alignments from Him. Some of these will come in 2021 and carry you almost to the end of the decade. 

New territories are before you. God is setting you up for new things! You will be able to advance in the giftings that He has given you. You are set up to complete the project for every Kingdom assignment that God has given you and each mantle that you are carrying for Him.

We are called to serve God and be faithful in all things. In Luke 6:47-49 Jesus says, “Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and acts on them, I will show you whom he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who has heard and has not acted accordingly is like a man who built a house on the ground without any foundation; and the torrent burst against it and immediately it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great.”

Acceleration is yours in 2021! God is setting you straight for 2021. He is giving you a new and fresh vision and a strategy for this year and beyond. I declare over you that you are blessed to be a blessing. You continue to bless Him with your increase, and He will continue to give you more. You are trustworthy. You are honest. You are loyal. You are positioning yourself in great character to carry the capacity. Great things are coming to you. God is going to take you to the next level!


Join your faith with Him in February. If you have not started consecrating yourself with praying, fasting and giving, then start now. It is never too late to connect with God in our hearts. Let Him align everything – spirit, soul and body. When you position yourself to live an overcoming life with Him, you are set on the right course. God needs you on His team. He needs you to be strong. Your transition begins today.
