The morning of September 23, 2019, God woke me up at 3:30 am saying, “Get up!” Believe me, I did NOT want to wake up. Because of two sleepless nights in a row, I’d went out like a light the night before. Rolling over, I started to drift back to sleep.
As soon as I began losing consciousness, the Lord said,
“Get up! This will go much quicker than you think!”
The Israelites were instructed to rehearse the wonders God had done for them (Deut. 11:1-19). Throughout scripture, we’re instructed to speak continually of the good things the Lord has done.
“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful to Him, and bless His name” (Psalms 100:4).
Remembering the wonders of what God has already done in our lives is critical when going through tests and trials. It reminds us of the faithfulness of the Lord, that He will never leave us nor forsake us. When we share praise reports, it also encourages those around us – especially the next generation!

I’d been praying for months, “Lord, if there be anything in me that doesn’t give you praise, that isn’t pleasing in your sight, take it from me.”
The first week in February, 2017, during a prayer meeting, we all knelt down and submitted ourselves to the Lord as a group. We told Him we were bringing all we were before His altar, and asked to be emptied of ourselves and filled with Him.
The Lord’s Response
That night, for the remainder of our prayer time, I heard the Lord say several times:
“I AM Holy!”
“Be ye therefore Holy, even as I AM Holy.”
“Nothing unclean can stand before Me.”
“You must be a living sacrifice.”
“Are you ready to DIE?”
When the Lord asked this, I said, “Yes, Lord, I’m yours. Do with me as it pleases you.” Although I meant every word, at the time I had no idea what I was asking, and what would have to take place in order to be emptied of myself and filled with Him. Read More >>>
On February 23rd, I was given a vision and word from the Lord.
While in prayer, I began to repent and intercede for the Church. As I prayed, I started to feel deep pain and agony in my spirit. Suddenly, what looked like a slide show presentation began.
Faces of people from all over the world began flashing across the screen. Some were crying, their hearts broken; my heart ached for them. Others were lying in beds, sick and injured; this brought twinges of pain in various parts of my own body. Read More >>>
During my study and prayer time this morning, thoughts of the intense spiritual warfare ahead for the Saints came heavy upon my spirit. Sure, spiritual warfare is a constant factor in the lives of Saints, but it was impressed upon me that we haven’t seen anything like what’s heading our way.
I saw in the spirit the darkness descending, similar to what I’d seen months ago and posted in the article titled ‘The Light Will Rise Above the Darkness.’ But this time I saw the descending darkness from where I was sitting. It was coming down as a cover, blanketing everything all around me.
As I watched, the Lord said, “Yes, sin will abound, but My Grace will MUCH MORE abound in you! The same Power that raised My Son from the dead lives in you. Stay close. Abide in Me, and you will be untouchable.”
On October 21st, I was awakened at 2:00 am by the following words: “You will take the land.” I was hearing it repeated over and over. Then, as I fully awakened, I heard it spoken loudly and very distinctly, “YOU WILL TAKE THE LAND!”
I initially took it as the Lord giving a general Word over His people – like words of affirmation over us as to what we’ll be doing in the not-too-distant future. So I got up from bed saying, “Yes, Lord. I receive that. We will indeed take the land.” Then I went into my office to pray over what I’d heard. Read More>>>
What I’m about to share was received in the early morning hours of September 14th. I’d just sat down to finish the article entitled, ‘I Am Offended by the Lack of Expectation from My People!’(Part One). If you haven’t already, I recommend reading it before reading this post. Please pray over what’s written here, that the Lord will give special revelation as it pertains to each individual.
In Part One, I described a dream I’d been given about being translated to India. A few other individuals and I had been sent there to speak and minister to a room full of people.
The next morning, the Lord revealed I’d been given the dream in response to my concern of what might happen if all communications were shut down and martial law instituted. He also reminded me of a bodily translation He’d let me experience six years prior, as well as show me visions of other experiences I’d had which, although I hadn’t realized at the time, were actually translations. He then said several things – including the following: Read More>>>
The morning of August 31st, I heard the Lord say, “I am offended by the lack of expectation from my people!”
It really surprised me at first, because I was right in the middle of praising and thanking Him for a revelation He’d just given through a dream. This particular dream has set me on fire with anticipation for what the Lord has planned for His people.
Prior to this dream, several pastor friends had been asking if it might be possible for me to come speak to their congregations about the dreams and visions I write about. With some being outside the U.S., I’d responded by saying that if it was God’s will, He’d have to make a way, especially the time needed for traveling such vast distances.
So, I’d been thinking along those lines. Even with all the social networking and satellite transmission capabilities, there’re still so many areas around the world not able to access such services. It’s still necessary for the Body of Christ to travel to and from to minister in these areas. Then I thought about what might happen if the communication systems we now take for granted are interrupted, or martial law instituted? These minor inconveniences we now experience will pale in comparison.
I quickly brushed off all the negative thoughts, and began thanking Him in advance for always making a way. Then came the dream… Read More>>>
On Friday, April 8th, 2016, I received a Word from the Lord. This began a series of messages received over the next few days, culminating in an open vision given the morning of Sunday, April 17th. I believe the message is for the Church, as it’s time to go out into the deep. Please pray and ask the Lord for interpretation and how it applies to you personally.
Words cannot adequately describe what I saw and experienced, so I’ve been in much prayer about relaying this dream. Before reading, please ask the Holy Spirit to open your heart to receive whatever He wishes to minister to you individually. Read More>>
