It’s time to Arise and Shine….

Dear Saints,

I wish to share two prophetic words with you today.  One is from my spiritual father and friend, and the other is a previous word from me which is a “now” word that confirms my spiritual father’s word.  But first, I wish to share with you how serious these words are and the urgency of the hour in which we are in.

I have been sensing in my spirit lately an excitement in that we have entered into a new season.  This new season is a fulfillment of Isaiah 60:1 “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.” (RV)  What I sense is that we have entered into a season of exponential grace in which the Lord is going to do a profound and quick work in those who recognize the season and take advantage of it.  Thus, the key to taking advantage of this season is to first recognize the season we have entered into, and then seek the Lord in faith and obedience to set us free from all sin and flesh and set our feet firmly upon the rock in spiritual high places.

Hosea 14:1-9 “Return, O Israel, to the LORD your God, for you have stumbled because of your iniquity. Take with you words and return to the LORD; say to him, “Take away all iniquity; accept what is good, and we will pay with bulls the vows of our lips. Assyria shall not save us; we will not ride on horses; and we will say no more, ‘Our God,’ to the work of our hands. In you the orphan finds mercy.”  I will heal their apostasy; I will love them freely, for my anger has turned from them. I will be like the dew to Israel; he shall blossom like the lily; he shall take root like the trees of Lebanon; his shoots shall spread out; his beauty shall be like the olive, and his fragrance like Lebanon. They shall return and dwell beneath my shadow; they shall flourish like the grain; they shall blossom like the vine; their fame shall be like the wine of Lebanon. O Ephraim, what have I to do with idols? It is I who answer and look after you. I am like an evergreen cypress; from me comes your fruit. Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; whoever is discerning, let him know them; for the ways of the LORD are right, and the upright walk in them, but transgressors stumble in them.” (ESV)

Psa 40:1-3 “I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.  He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay; and he set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.  And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. (RV)

I am really excited for this season which we have entered into and I can’t emphasize enough the importance to not miss out on this season by going about with business as usual.  For those who are truly hungry for Christ and His righteousness, this is an exciting time.  If you take advantage of this, you will see yourself spiritually grow at a rapid rate and witness the Lord working through you with gifts of the Spirit and reach out to a dying and hurting world.  This is also a time of great healing and restoration in all area of our lives including financial.  Don’t miss out on this.  Seek the Lord like you’ve never sought Him before.

 

Prophetic word from my spiritual father and friend:

“My people…I come to you this day to bring hope…I come to you this day to bring encouragement. I come with the sword of truth…I come in the everlasting love that I have for each of you. Many of you truly know what time it is…many of you are aware, but are not acquiescing with Me in the ways that I want you to. For many of you have been compromised by the spirit that exists in the church & that spirit is not of Me. You have heard Me say that a spirit of compromise & complacency has taken hold of many…but most do not know that they are also taken hold of by the same things. Today I come to give you light, so that you may arise & shine in this last day & be the church that I have called you to be…in Me.

For surely you know that My word says “arise, shine, for your light has come & the glory of the Lord is risen upon you”…but to most, this is only a statement from My word & has no real meaning or impact on My people. It is more a thing of hoping for…it is more a thing that may someday come…but I say, it is a living reality right now…for now is the time for My people to rise up & be who I have called them to be. To some, this word may cause puzzling, because to you, you are living in My will, as you have perceived it to be…but even then, you have been limited by this wave of compromise & complacency. For you know that My light dispels darkness…for darkness cannot overtake My light, but darkness will flee.

You are called to BE the light of the world, for a city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. But, most do not know of this. Have I not said that no man when he has lighted a candle, places it under a bushel? But, this is exactly what My people are doing…My people will mostly hide in their churches, where few may see My light, rather than going into all the world to preach the gospel to every creature. Yes, these will praise & worship Me while inside the 4 walls of the church…they will speak all about Me there…but when they leave, they leave the great majority of their Christian testimony there inside the building. This should not be so…for I am with you where ever you go…you must let your light shine!

Look in My word…is this not the way that I lived? For the great majority of miracles & healings…the great majority of Me impacting people was not done within the 4 walls of the church building…they were done outside in the world. There were done in the fields & mountains…they were done in the streets of the marketplace…they were done where ever I would go. This is how My people are supposed to be…they are supposed to be like ME. For even prophetic words & words of knowledge came more from My lips outside, than they did within the building…for it is My desire to reach a lost & dying world…most of these will never enter the building…they must be reached from outside.

Hear Me, My people as My heart cries out for you…sense the love in which I speak to you. For I come as a Father to give My people wisdom & instruction for this last day. This is not the time to “go to church & play church”…this is the time to rise up & be who you are called to be…you are called to be the light of the world. For if My people do not begin to arise & shine, soon, before long it will be too late & many will have to go into hiding. All you have is NOW…for now is the time. For tomorrow may never be…there is no guarantee of tomorrow…all you have is today. So, today, if you will hear My voice, you must stop from hardening your heart…respond to My heart of love while you still can.

To those who would resist My words, do not stand in pride, thinking that this word does not include you, for it is for all of My people, no matter who you are. Do not think that just because you can minister the things of My Spirit within the walls of a building, that you are exempt from this word…for I do not want you to fall. I need you to see that your ability to minister in the church is done solely in a protected environment. What is going to happen when you are thrust out of the building & its safe environment…how will you “minister” then, when you are found standing “outside”? My people need to shake themselves free from the complacency & compromise gripping the church now.

My people need to exercise themselves unto “godliness”…you are to BE like Me. Shake yourselves free from the “comfortable little boxes” that exist…which is called “church” & begin to go outside, into the world & bring change! What did I ordain the church to do? I gave some, apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors & teachers, for the perfecting of the saints, so the saints could do the work of the ministry…for the edifying of the body of Christ. The 4 walls of the church exists entirely for this purpose! So that My people will be trained up in the things of God & then go outside & change the world. Why are not My people going outside & doing what I have called the church to do?

A religious spirit has afflicted My people, to keep them from doing what I desire for them to do…for even many of My prophets & apostles have come under this spell & are speaking words of comfort, instructing them to continue as they are & that all is fine. But, all is not fine…for My people are liken unto the frog that is on top of a hot stove, being lulled into sleep, unto their death. My people need to shake themselves free from this spirit & arise while they still can…it is time to arise, shine…for your light has come…for the glory of the Lord is to rise upon you! Hear Me, My people…seek Me, allow Me to wash & cleanse you from this contaminating spirit…seek Me & I will turn things around, says the Lord”.

End of word.

Prophetic word from me:

I love you, My people. Hear My heart crying out to you. Awaken yourself and arise, for your light has come. For there is a light coming to My people this day. However, many will miss out on this light for woe unto those who are at ease in Zion. Therefore, awaken yourself, My people, for I am bringing the light of a new day. Do not be as those who are asleep to my Spirit as they are too busy with their lives and do not hear My call to arise.

Hear Me, I desire that none would miss out on this great light that I am bringing to My people this day and hour. For you will see wonders in the heavens like you have never seen. Revelations will flow to My people and My army will awaken from their slumber and arise to their God.

Hear Me, My people. Stir yourself awake and shake off every weight and sin that so easily entangles you. For surely I am doing a new thing in the earth and I need My army to arise. Yes, the call is going out for my army to arise NOW. Will you heed the call? Or will you be one who denies the Master’s invitation as you go about doing your own thing? Listen, as I call you to arise. For there will be many who will hear this call. Yet, there will be much more who will not hear because their ears have become dull of hearing my Spirit as they flounder in the cares of this world.

So listen and heed as I blow the trumpet in Zion and cry out to My army; “ARISE, for your light has come.”

End of word.

Isaiah 43:18-19 “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” (ESV)

 

If these words from the Lord encourage or help you in any way, please consider returning the favor with a financial gift (of any size) to help with my monthly needs.  I always trust the Lord to lay it upon the hearts of those who are obedient and giving, and so I give a big thank you to those of you who do help.  I also pray the Lord’s abundant blessings in return for those who give.  Love and blessings to you all.

Your brother in Christ,
