Continue to Trust in Jesus

Continue to Trust in Jesus

It is only as you put on the mind of Christ that you will understand that which is taking place daily in the earth.  Do not look on the outward appearance but always come back to me, your Father in Heaven and reason with me.  Many of you are extremely distressed with the times you are living in.  Many have come to the point where they feel that they cannot go on and do not know where to turn next.  Have I changed?  Am I not your Lord and provider?  Am I not the God that heals you?  Am I not the God that puts your food on the table?  Do not look at the outward appearance for man does this but look upon My heart.  See through My eyes.  Hear with My ears and glean that which I am saying first to you and then to the church. 

 The times ahead will not be easy.  Those days are over but know that I am with you.  I will never forsake or leave you.  Do not despair for there is an open door to enter in and fellowship with Me.  I am longing for those precious ones that are moving to and fro in stresses of daily life to stop and turn to me.  Sit with Me for times of refreshing.  Sit with Me and hear from Me and learn that I am your Father. 

 Though the storm hit, I am there as I was with My disciples in the boat.  I did not run off and leave them but stood by them allowing them to grow spiritually and then see the wonder of a miracle.  Keep calling on Me, keep calling on My name.  If all you can do is say, Jesus help me, Jesus guide Me, know that I hear the most simple prayer.  I am not a Father that is without understanding but know My love. 

Beloved, you are struggling, many of mine are struggling financially and in many other ways and many have gone home.  Do not look at death through natural eyes but see through the eyes of my spirit.  Death for the child of God is better than ones birth.  I do all things well so do not allow the enemy to tell you otherwise.  I give and I take away, blessed be the name of the Lord.  I am Alpha and Omega and will have the last say.  

Though that anti Christ spirit has raised its ugly head and is manifesting, I am stronger much stronger.  These things must first come to pass.  Do that which you need to do.  Care for your household and for those that are in your sphere of influence.  My yolk is easy and  burden is light.  Again, I will never forsake or leave you even during the most difficult of times I am standing with you.  Keep praying and interceding for the needs of your household and extended family and do not give up for I hear and answer prayer.  Be of good courage and I will strengthen your heart.  Rejoice in the Lord and again I say rejoice for I am in the midst of My people.

22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, 24 and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.
27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
29 “Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” Matt. 14:22-33 (NIV)

Word of the Lord September 2013

Word of the Lord September 2013
by Prophetess Phyllis Ford
Arlington, Texas

I was somewhat concerned that the Lord had not released the word for September. As the first of the month passed the Lord began to let me know that the emphasis was not on the first of the month but that which was to come. He showed the Jewish calendar. What I was looking at was “a measured time with a spiritual emphasis.” He was letting me know to get the first off of my mind and to focus on what He was showing me. He was saying that the emphasis was on the seriousness of the hour and how the ten days from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur must be covered with heavy prayer. It is about Israel, America, the Nations, and what must be done. Understand that it is also about a marking of time and the purpose of this time.

The following are His words:

“I am dealing with the spirit of uncleanness that is upon this land at various levels. It has affected the hearts of the people and how a person measures, sees, and discerns a thing. Much has been poisoned the views of the people , the ways of people, and their choices. More importantly it has affected their levels of trust in me. The enemy has sown seeds of mistrust so that the faith of my people would fail, his strategy hasn’t changed.”

“You must guard against everything at this level. Your ability to trust, to uphold your faith and to believe that which I shall do in this hour, is very key. They are your greatest strengths and they are also your greatest weapons. As many seek to find deeper revelation on overcoming the enemy’s weapons, know that much can be measured with a seed of faith. It has the ability to move mountains, to reverse whatever obstacle is opposing you, and to withstand the greatest attack that may try to deter or hinder you.”

Matthew 17:20 “He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

Hebrews 10:38 “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.”

“This nation is on a course of serious events. Trust and faith in me will be a major factor. Many things are about to occur between this September and October that will try the hearts of men. My people must prevail in prayer during these next ten days from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur. There are many things hanging in the balance and this nation in many aspects has lost its way. (This is now occurring in many regions but America has reached its tipping point.) This is not a political battle but a spiritual battle. I have told you before that by the end of this year Nations will align themselves as sheep nations and goat nations---this alignment is forming right now.”

“Allegiances are being made. The foundation of the factors that has to do with those who will follow me and those who will oppose me are being settled. Their fates will be determined by whom they will serve. So as I passed through the first of September be I was pointing to a time. (A time from the Head of the year to the High Holy day of Atonement.) I am saying to my people: You shall no longer halt between two opinions you must choose who will you serve, for the fate of nations will be determined by those choices.”

Matthew 25:32-34 “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: (v 35-46).”

“You may say, “What shall happen to me if my nation has turned towards Satan but I am for God?”. I say to you cry out, where your voice may be heard. Cry out to others, I will hear you and cover you, I will be your deliverer, and I am your God. My covenant will remain forever. I have settled these things in the heavens and will establish them upon the earth. I shall not change. So cry out for your nation, cry out for the salvation of others. Cry out for my army of warriors to rise. The fate of the nations once they have been determined, will be sealed. The day is short and much is at hand, the night is approaching. Who will be willing to work? Rise up, and fulfill your calling! Make your calling and election sure. Many men will seek answers but refuse to acknowledge the real truth. Know that old faulty systems and the lies of the enemy will give way and not stand in the face of my truth.”

Psalm 119:89 “Forever, O LORD, your word is settled in heaven.Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands.…”

2 Peter 1:10-11 “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

“So prepare your heart and your mind to run the course that has been set before you. Make the necessary adjustments along the way. For I am uncovering everything. I am even revealing your own heart. I am removing that which is not of me and I am pouring into you even more of my life so that you may live and overcome, says the Lord. I will give you favor and position you so that you may be effective in your assignments. The timing before you is key, make the best of what is given you and do not weary yourself with the evil that surround present circumstances because I will cause what you see as opposition, to work for you. There is a battle even confusion going on in the camp of the enemy.”

“Watch, keep your spiritual eyes open to see and know the way I have prepared for you. I will lead you and guide you through to victory, but you must not allow the distractions of the day to keep you from day to day instructions. I will judge the rebellion of the ways of the wicked. I will release to you everything you need now. Do not judge anything before the time but watch, look, and listen. I will speak to you in the night season even in the darkest hours and you will know the course to take from one place of safety to another, says the Lord. I will release my angels to assist you, even allies in the midst of your enemies to help you. These are my promises to you. Remember I am your redeemer, the one who is working things out for your good.”

“Begin to carry a wisdom concerning what you say because your words have power. Remember to use them for you and not against you. Say what I say.  Know that what the King commands will always be backed by the Kingdom of Heaven. You will overcome the kingdoms of this world through your faith and trust in me. Utilize and walk in the strategy of my kingdom as I direct and strengthen you. Continue to withstand every lie and opposition of the enemy. You have already obtained the anointing to walk in what I have given unto you. You have what you need and it is far more than you think you have.”

“Speak, direct, move any opposition that stands before you. Quit ye like men, for the army is increasing, growing, accelerating and it is becoming more powerful. As the forces of darkness begin to loom, greater so shall my army be for my glory shall cover you, as you move forth.”
“Beloved, behold you shall have victory even in this coming storm, as you are faithful unto me, says the Lord.”

1 Corinthians 16:13 “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. Let all your things be done with charity.”

1 Samuel 12:23-25 "Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by ceasing to pray for you; but I will instruct you in the good and right way. Only fear the LORD and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. But if you still do wickedly, both you and your king will be swept away."

I had two very vivid visions and a very significant dream:

1.)    I was with my daughters getting the last things needed in anticipation for preparation of something that was about to occur. It was turning into sunset but it was still light outside but as darkness was coming in—I heard a loud crackling sound then a sound of a surge of some type—I saw bolts of electricity at the same time—then all of a sudden the power completely went out. No light. No nothing. We appeared to be a couple blocks away from our destination so we quietly pulled over. People were panicked a guy said to us that the street which he just came from power was out everywhere no lights were seen for miles away. There was confusion.

2.)    I dreamed I was on the phone talking to a prophet telling him about the above vision as I was talking to him (I saw in the spirit, a fairly large hand held device that had a red rim around it—it has a grid on the face of it) I begin to share what I saw over the phone and I heard a loud sound—I was being told by someone in the house that something just happened (I don’t know if it was being reported (on the TV) or it had just happened outside but I assumed it was outside.) I woke up some- what startled. Both 1 & 2 happened 2 days ago.

Isaiah 60:1-2 "Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. 2"For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you.…

3.)    I saw a vision of a large group of people who were in formation. It was like I was observing the phases of actions that were prophetically coming to pass.

a.) Others begin to join those who were already standing in the group. 

b.) Then all of a sudden others joined but the formation changed, I could see between them, because some that were in the front were no longer in the front but others replaced their positions by coming to the front and others fell in place. It was like a shifting formation. But no one left.

c.) After the movement there was a pause then a sound and the entire group closed ranks and I could no longer see between them for they had closed ranks. I knew that meant they were ready. The group went from many to a number that could not be numbered.

Joel 2:7 “They run like mighty men, They climb the wall like soldiers; And they each march in line, Nor do they deviate from their paths.”

(I knew it was the army of the Lord)

Prophetic prayer request: Calling all gatekeepers, intercessors, watchmen, leaders and precious members of the body of Christ.

1.      Cry out for our nation, let your voice be heard, ask others to cry out, pray for the salvation of people and our land that is hanging in the balance.

2.      Pray for Israel, pray for the peace of Jerusalem and against war, retaliation, backlash that it would not come against God’s people. 

3.      Pray for the release of God’s provision to come upon his people in natural and supernatural ways from every direction and place.

4.      Pray that God’s judgment will expose, uncover and will sweep the church and the land. Pray for a cleansing at all cost. (Jezebel and her lies must be uprooted.)

5.      Pray for Christians and their churches who are being persecuted by evil ruler-ship in various nations. Pray for their protection in all regions across the globe everywhere.

6.      Pray that the spirit of civil war in Syria will not carry over to a civil war here in the USA. Cover all decisions being made now behind closed doors (hidden and known).

7.      Pray that no toxic chemicals and toxic waters will come into our water systems.

8.      Pray that all the evil plans within the banking systems will be uncovered and exposed.

9.      Continue to pray around the spiritual gates of our nations (the spiritual place where major decisions will be made) and to call down confusion upon the camp of the enemy.

10.  Pray against the spirit of uncleanness and that the eyes of the body of Christ will be opened. Pray clarity and discernment will be strong and the truth in us will not be compromised under any circumstances.

11.  Pray that the army of God will arise and do great exploits.

12.  Continue to pray protection over women and children. Cover in prayer those who are being potentially being trafficked, killed, aborted and abused throughout our nations. 

  Let pray during significant watches, prepare around the clock prayer, develop places of prayer. Pray without ceasing!

Pastor Saeed From Iranian Prison

Pastor Saeed From Iranian Prison: Thanks for Praying & Fighting for my Freedom

American Pastor Saeed Abedini’s family in Terhan was able to visit him again earlier this week.

Pastor Saeed was able to get a new letter out this week to his wife Naghmeh.  He sent her this letter to be shared with supporters who gathered recently, on the Christian day of Pentecost, to pray for him.

He shared that despite what he has to endure on a daily basis – the beatings and internal bleeding – he has hope.  The 33-year-old U.S. Citizen  wrote, “I will also be freed from my chains though prayer and strength of the Grace of God.”

His full letter to supporters is below.

Spending Pentecost in Prison and in Chains

When the Day of the Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. (Acts 2:1-2)

One special day, one heart, one place -- All of these come together, to emphasize one thing, the importance of unity.

I heard that the persecution, my arrest and imprisonment has united churches from different denominations, from different cities and countries, that would never come together because of their differences. That the churches have united together in prayer to put one request (my freedom) on one day (Pentecost) before God.

You don’t know how happy I was in the Lord and rejoiced knowing that in my chains the body of Christ has chained together and is brought to action and prayer.

When someone’s life like mine is in danger, we realize how different we are in our opinions (although some of those differences might be correct), but that we are still united in one goal of praying for my freedom.

I am thankful for that. It is though your prayers and the Grace of God that the Lord is using me here in my chains. Many have been freed from the chains of Satan here and have been saved and added to the Church.

Now, how beautiful it will be if the Church would be united and fight for the salvation of the world whose life is in danger and who are bound in chains of Satan and to fight for the salvation of the world, a world that is heading to the way of destruction. With the same passion and the same way that you are praying and fighting for my freedom, we need to be praying and fighting for the salvation of the world.

When the Church is united (with one heart, in one place, on one day) that is when the joy and strength of God (Holy Spirit) wants to come in that unity and pour out and the Lord be exalted. Although this unity is the result of direct involvement of the Holy Spirit that is able to bring many different characteristics to make one.

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me (Acts 1:8).

And only when the Holy Spirit comes can you get strength. Without the strength of God it is impossible to do the will of God. And when we receive strength, then we can be transformed. And when we are transformed, that is when the Church is transformed as well. And when the Church is transformed, then the world will be freed from the chains of sin and will be saved and transformed. When we are all united and chained together, united in our hearts, in one place in one day, and we pray, then we will receive the power from on High and will receive strength and the world will be changed and will be freed from the chains of bondage and will be saved. The same way that I will also be freed from my chains though prayer and strength of the Grace of God.

So dear sisters and brothers let us be united in prayer for freedom and salvation of the world. Let us be united so that the Holy Spirit might fall on us and the Glory of God would be revealed through us and through the church.

Welcome to the chains that have bound me and have bound us together. Happy Pentecost.

God Said and it was.
Chains were broken.
Our sins were forgiven
I am free
You are free
We all have freedom

With many thanks for your continued and faithful prayers.

Servant of our Lord in chains for Jesus Christ,

Intercessory Alert

Intercessory Alert

A lot of rhetoric is going on as North Korea's spoiled son now leads the country.  Rumors of nukes being fired and the revving up of an old nuclear reactor have much of the world worried.  Joel Rosenberg's book "Dead Heat" may very shortly coming to pass if we do not get this right.  The United States can ill afford to read the signals wrong and we need intercessors on the wall on high alert.  It is not easy to bend ones knee and seek the face of the Lord but one needs perseverance and a willing heart to watch and seriously pray and intercede.  If the church would truly learn to do so it could avert much of what may shortly come to pass. Alas, many are busy about much and not busy about their Fathers business. 

The Lord has such love for us and wants to help us to do His will in the earth as it is in heaven.  We cannot walk out our salvation alone but need Him each moment of every day to lead, guide and direct our lives.  Jesus is the answer!  The only answer to mans dilemma.  Sin is rampant and Jesus is the only one that can eradicate sin.  He is the only one that can truly change human nature and bring to death that old man.  Ceasing to sin is not possible in ourselves but when Christ truly lives in a man or woman and they allow Him to be Lord it brings forth lasting change.

Let us as the church cry out to the Lord.  Let us take time in the secret place to hear His voice.  Let us walk with our Father and not stop crying out day and night till we see change.  The Lord puts in leaders and scripture says He removes them too.  This is definitely being allowed by the Lord but how America and the world handle it is going to determine the outcome.

 How we as the church take our position in the body as intercessors and pray through will determine our future.  Let us life up our voices and cry out to the Lord and repent of our sin and then we will hear from heaven and He will heal our land.  A spirit of repentance needs to fall on each one from the least to the greatest and the church needs to walk as it did in the beginning.  We need pure hearts to truly intercede and bring forth change.  Today we are being challenged to come up higher and allow Father God to do a lasting work in our lives.  None of this worldly stuff matters at all and for myself in fifty years none of this will be remembered. 

What will count is what one does with the prayer needs that cross our path.  Will we say, another will pray or will we take up our cross, deny ourselves and come to the place of being the intercessors the Lord wants us to be.  The choice is ours.  Will we stand as the body of Christ together and be light in this ever darkening world.  Will we let our light shine before men and glorify our Father in Heaven.  Let us change history by how we respond to the call of the Lord to watch and pray. Pray for our Nations leaders that they come to know the Lord and bend their knee before Almighty God. The  effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much and much can be delayed, lives spared and demonic acts averted by our intercession.  The gates of hell will not prevail against us.

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
