07.17.13 Take this word as a gift from the Lord, Restoration & Reconciliation are on God's mind. The enemy has played tricks long enough, he has stolen enough and he has bruised you long enough. God says many are going to go from the pit to the palace in just one day. You will go from the furnace of your enemies into the fire of His presence. His arm is not to short, His eye is not dim, nor has His hearing failed Him. He has seen you, He says He knows you and He says the time of redemption draws near. Do not look to the favor of man to save you, remember the butler and the baker? I say lions cannot eat you, Dogs cannot bite you, nor will the enemy come near your house. I have seen the blood dripping from your rafters. I have seen the praises which lifted your roof and the worship that soaked up your tears. I call all of heaven and hell as a witness, Watch what I will do. Watch what I will do saith the Lord.
1/8/13 The Lord says, it's enough. It's time to bring back the men, women, the children of war. Casualties have been great, the wounds are deep, the scars remain. Purple hearts and purple prose cannot bring them back again. Memories lost, memories found, memories buried because of war. It's enough says the Lord. It's enough, almost more than you can handle, more than you can bare. It's enough. Bring them home. Bring them home to Me and I will heal their wounds, I will deliver them and set them free from the ravages of war. Families struggle against the tide of crimson blood shed on foreign soil as memories flood their soul and lay waste upon the shores of their broken mind. It's enough says the Lord. It's enough. Return my Mommies back to Me, Bring My Fathers home, let the wounded warriors return and I will give them rest. It's time for You My church to reach out through any and all means possible to your service men & women & children. Pray for them. Pray for the families which have been affected by war. Pray Church Pray!!!
She was twenty,he was thirty-five when they met. They were married thirty years when he passed away. She is now in her nineties.Her widowhood has lasted longer than her marriage. When asked why she never remarried, her reply was simple.You cannot when you have had the One.
He was twenty-two, she was twenty when they married. They have been married forty-years now. When asked how they have endured.Their reply was simple,How can you not when you are with the One.
He was eighteen, she was sixteen when they married. They have been married more than sixty-five years now. When asked, How can you still be in love with the same person all these years? Their reply was simple, it's easy when you meet the One.
Grandpa and Wilamena were a force to be reckoned with. In their nineties they were still madly in love with each other. You couldn't mistake it. It was embarrassing, it was intoxicating and sometimes funny. I loved to visit them. I remember when she died, Grandpa was lost without his Wilamena. He passed away two years later rejoicing he was going home to meet his Wilamena.
He was thirty-five, she was thirty-four when they met. They were married for fifteen years until there was a dissolution. Although he has tried to move on. He has realized you cannot when you've met the one. You know when you have met the One. You just know.
I met Jesus in 1982.
When I encountered Him I knew I had met the ONE. At that time in my life there were many spirits vying for my attention but I found out what happens when you meet the One. He is the God of Love, He is love. You know when you've encountered Love.
It has been thirty years since our first meeting and truly we are more in love then when we first met.
Have other voices come along? Has the love of the world and other things tempted me?
I can say, as long as we alive the allurement will always be there...
The truth is, when you meet the One there is no more looking or wondering if the next person or god is the One.
When you encounter real love given from God whether spiritual or natural there is no denying it. You stop looking any further. Your heart tells you this is the One.You just know.
When you encounter the One, no one else will satisfy you,nothing else will entice you, no one will captivate you, move you or seduce you like the One.
Real love is a gift from God and He makes no mistakes when He gives you to each other.
If your natural relationship so happens to be cut short... understand this, God gives us the grace to continue on even in the other persons absence.
The woman above has been a widow longer than her marriage lasted upon this earth but to see her face when she speaks of him, her eyes shine. She smiles, almost blushes as she speaks of him. Still all these years later, long after his physical departure she carries a fire within her heart for the One she loves, The One she misses and the One she longs to be reunited with. No doubt they will be reunited in heaven very soon as she is up there in years but if nothing else she has taught me how to live with, enjoy and be comfortable with love even love that is denied an out because it's reserved only for that particular One. To be shared another day sometime in the future on earth or in heaven.
These people including myself have encountered the One.
Have you found the One?
Prayer & Prophecy can assist you but the truth is in order to find the One you must start with an open heart.
Open your heart, Invite Him In and if you do not know that other One yet... He'll bring them across your path. I promise.
11/20/12 November in the USA is the month of our national holiday called, Thanksgiving. In this very small space I will not try enticing you to have a nice one, invite you over or lend a favorite recipe. I just found the word thanksgiving apropos. Everyone one of us has a reason to be thankful even in the most dire of circumstances. It's easy to be thankful when there are no problems or persecution or sickness. Anyone can do that. But when things aren't going right and everything looks wrong in our life will we still be able to find thankfulness sitting upon our table? Quite often people can blame others for their difficulties in life. My husband doesn't love me, my wife doesn't listen to me, God has not answered my prayers and on and on our list of complaints can go but the truth is. Nothing and no one can make you thankful and there is nothing in life which can take it from you without your permission. How valuable is your thanksgiving or your ability to give thanks?
My life as a prophetic minister has given me plenty of opportunities to not give thanks because things didn't go my way, people treated me unfairly, sickness showed up and on and on but in the end I am the one responsible to make the decision,not God or man, ME. I am the one. Can I, will I, still be filled with a heart of thanksgiving in spite of_______? The Apostle Paul wrote, 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you... 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:6-13 At the end of last month, October 31st I was severely ill. There were only three people who knew and I'm not talking the trinity of God. Ralph was with me that night. My closest confidant Lynn knew and God. In the beginning only these three people knew, these three people prayed for me. It took five days for me to recuperate from this intestinal blockage. I did not go to the hospital but strictly relied on God to either heal me or take me home to be with Him. I am still here and He knew I quit emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually during this bout. I had no fight to conquer this. I just relied on Him to bring me through. Although disoriented thanksgiving was in my heart no matter which way the battle went. Why He healed me and didn't take me I don't know. Honestly this old guy wanted to just be welcomed home. I am still learning to be grateful but I do have thanksgiving. How about you?
A Year of Wonder, A Year of Might... 1/01/12
I could hear His voice behind me. I could also hear the enthusiasm of the people packed in tightly around His throne. He was giving out assignments, words for the New Year. Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers were all present. Each and every one begging to know what was going to happen and where, I just simply listened while peering over the edge. Here I was standing on the line between the calendar years and I already knew what was coming, that's not what was bothering me.
People were dismissed into destiny, assignments and words given. New levels of authority, promotions and everything a heart could desire if that's all there was to be but again I was troubled all the more. At once a sea of people came towards me. Our bodies clashed as shoulders hit each other, I was heading the wrong way. I was heading into the crowd not away from them. They were leaving the throne, I was not. I searched for them but our eyes never met, not one looked at me. Their eyes staring off into space, as if looking at some distant prize. Each held a sword by their side and as swiftly as they stepped over the calendar line,their flesh turned into earths pinkish hue. One by one they all disappeared.
Here I was once again, alone going against the mainstream of popular belief and thoughts. Walking away from destiny, privilege and honor. I was heading back to the throne with a heavy heart while all others rejoiced upon their leaving.
The empty and now vast space were evident as I approached the once crowed altar. He saw me coming but said nothing. Today I did not run to Him as my Father but understood He was sovereign, a king.
My sandal straps clung to my fingers as I approached His feet. I simply laid them down as if in offering. I could not look upon Him. I un-girded my sword and laid it upon the steps and gently took from my body my garments of praise. The golden chain which was a cherished gift from Him also was laid gently atop the pile of discarded items. In my nakedness I knelt down and wept bitterly before Him. My tears pooled up around our feet and then I heard His voice, " Why? Why are you doing this my son? Why? What is wrong? Have I not given out good gifts? Have I not given out words of knowledge and wisdom? Have I not given the prophets what they asked for?" Did not each person seek me for their desired portion and did I not give it so they could return to earth to their assigned places? If this is all true then why are you here My son? Why have done such a thing?"
I could not look upon Him but only listen. It was in a long silence that my heart burst forth and I finally spoke.
Father I am naked before and I am not ashamed. I did not seek your gifts nor your hand. Nor did I desire to have the newest, latest, greatest word for the coming year or even years. I feel no need to return to earth to defend the word you gave me. You and I both know, many a sword will be used to protect and defend the words you just released and this is not in my heart. Far too many people will bleed due to ministers rivaling each other over your words. Father this is not in my heart. Then what is it son, what is in your heart? Father it's not enough to prophesy, it's not enough to quote scriptures to prove my rightness but there is more, so much more than having or getting a word or being right or justified. You have called us to die for the ones we love. Yes we have proven to you Father over and over again that we would die for you based on our level of commitment but this we should not have to prove again as you know all things. We confess we are crucified with Christ but none the less live and rightly so we do. Then I must ask who are we to die for next?
Will the Prophets die for the ones to whom they are sent to share the word with? Will your Apostles die for those in front of them, friend and foe alike? Will your Pastors literally exchange their life so one of their sheep could live?
My heart trembles Father as I see so many who would die defending your word, their ministry and their reputation all the while leaving the people around them and oft times right in front of them alone, naked and afraid. Father as your witness, many can't die to themselves and if we have forgotten how to die for another then what are we doing?
I'm not interested in gathering prophetic words, nor larger crowds. My aim is not a bigger ministry but to honestly take stock in what I already have been given. Father int he past you have given me the chance to oversee churches and I did so and they became our children. Father over all these years you have given me people of which to correspond and I did this to the best of my ability. I can honestly say that I have not forgotten but have continually counted the cost even after all these years. Father my aim, your goal was not to just increase me numerically for numbers sake. Your desire my desire was that each and every person you've allowed to step in our path that I would see them, I would know their heart and we would know each other as intimately as humanly and spiritually possible.
Father the people I write to, I know them all by name. I know their voice. I know their face. I can shut my eyes while praying for them and feel their pain. There is not one of them Father that I have not considered carefully would I die for them? Would I and can I make that exchange? Father my answer is yes. The answer has to be yes or what would be the purpose in all the activity that just transpired here.
Father in 2012 we do not need more mouths to talk but tears to be shed. We need not contend with another for supremacy. I think we should lay down our weapons and go home first to take stock within ourselves. We know we will die for you but who is in front of us that we have carefully crafted the words to fit our mouth and we know if asked that question our pause would be the answer to the question. Father I would never ask you for more until you've examined my heart. That is why I'm here kneeling before you and 2012 to be judged and examined to see if I'm fit to rule and reign with you.
It is my prayer and the prayers of our ministry that above all things you prosper and be in good health in 2012. Out of the abundance of our heart the mouth speaks. What are saying, what is really the truth? In this next season examine yourself and ask that almighty question about each and every person who is in front of you, Would I die for you? Literally die so you could live? If the answer is no then there is always a place for you by kneeling in prayer. His altar is empty now and I know His heart would be blessed to have many return even as I did, naked and in need of a savior.
If you are reading this please understand I've already asked myself that question long ago when I first met you and the answer is still emphatically yes!!!
You are all so special to me. Hopefully this letter let's you know I've cared for you more than you knew.
Peace & Love Always, Prophet Tom
Happy New Year 2012
For many people, transition is tough. Change is something they try to avoid like the plague. When prophets start talking about things shifting and changing people want to duck down small alleyways to escape but try as we may we cannot escape. King David once said, 1You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. 2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. 3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. 4 Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely. 5 You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. 7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? 8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. 9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, 10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. 11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” 12 even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. Psalm 139: 1-12
Our transition into the next phase of life is seamless in His eyes. The events of our life are strung together like finely woven silk. Each moment specifically designed, custom ordered, hand picked by Him. Transition is not to be feared but needs to be embraced if not heroically then humbly. I am neither a minor prophet nor am I a major prophet but I do know I am chosen by Him. Many a day I do not want to be or feel like being prophet Tom but I am and like you I cannot hide from Him or His word. Transition comes to all of us.
Remember not the things of the past, even of the last few days. Take care in your packing, prepare your things and get ready for transition is coming.
The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri The Purgatorio Canto V 5-15
I looked behind me to see who had spoken, and I saw them gazing up at me alone, at me, and at the light, that it was broken.
At which my Master said: " Why do you lag? What has so turned your mind that you look back? What is it to you that idle tongues will wag?
Follow my steps, though all such whisper of you: be as a tower of stone, its lofty crown unswayed by anything the winds may do.
For when a man lets his attention range toward every wisp, he loses true direction, sapping his mind's force with continual change."
Proverbs 4:27 Decline not to the right hand, nor to the left: turn away thy foot from evil. For the Lord knoweth the ways that are on the right hand: but those are perverse which are on the left hand. But he will make thy courses straight, he will bring forward thy ways in peace. "Douay-Rheims Bible"
Distractions. We have all encountered them at one time or another. Have you ever noticed that distractions come more easily when we are weary, fatigued? When we are well rested we are more alert. We are not easily distracted. We tend to be more focused and over all have a stronger constitution to finish or at least achieve the task at hand. Our hero Dante was very weary at this point in his journey and at the slightest noise he turned away from the path set before him. How often have we been tired maybe even exhausted physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and turned away from our path?
Thank God Jesus did not do this. On the way to Golgotha he had to go through crowds of people lined on both sides of him. I cannot imagine the voices and noises that pulled, vied for his attention during that time. Sadly his friends, family and disciples were among the throng. He demonstrated single mindedness for us. He demonstrated what is was to stay focused with complete concentration on the path set before him. Truly he was tempted and tested in all ways.
Have you turned your head? Have you allowed something/someone to distract you? God understands we can become weary and tired while on our journey. It's not enough to get some rest. We must wake with the same focus and purpose we had in mind when we laid down.
Like you, I have been distracted in my journey from time to time. Like you I have sat down in complete frustration and wanted to quit. Like you I have allowed distractions to come from people and events in my life. Sometimes even the enemy was used. Yet with all this temptation comes a reprieve. He is always walking with us. God is always with us even when we get distracted. Remember, all we need is a word from Him to be turned back around and get back on the path... Consider this a word from Him.
Hello Everyone, Every once in a while I feel compelled to send out a mass e-mail prayer to those whom I keep in contact with. The danger in doing something like this is that the prayer can come off sounding generic, boxed or canned of which I promise you it is not.
Father God we come to you now asking for audience. We do not come with loud clanging instruments nor weeping and wailing but in all humility do we come before you. We do not have to recite our good works or repent of our failures at the door before we come to you. You are our Father and you love us. It is actually this love which compels us to continually come before you. Your love is magnificent, it is without condition. You love us in spite of our mistakes. You love us regardless of successes.Your love is unconditional.
Father, at this very moment… Yes, by the time it takes our eyes to read this, you are looking at us. When we couldn't find you. When we thought you didn't care because of what's going on. Yes, Father we are guilty of believing a lie from the enemy. The lie that you don't hear us.
My Child, I see you. I hear you. I understand what is going on in your life. You may not like the circumstances surrounding you. You may not like some of the people around you but understand this, If they are there and the things that surround you are there then trust I know all this. If I am allowing this and them to be there then there is a reason. You lack understanding, you actually lack concern when it comes to others. You just want this and them to go away.
When I don't change the circumstances and people don't seem to change then maybe it is something deeper in you that I am actually looking for. You keep pointing the finger at them. You keep blaming them but it is the thing you keep locked up in the hidden place that I desire.
Have you ever heard the expression, Hurt people hurt people? Who are you hurting? Why do you continue to blame them for your pain? Although you believe you are healed successful and whole you must see things through My eyes and from My perspective. Each and every time you hurt, beat down,talk about, defame, gossip about or slander even one of My other children you do not exemplify your healing but are actually magnify your need for healing.
Hurt people do hurt people and many times they know it not. Do you want to be free? If you want relief then look inward and not outward. Stop ignoring the fact that you are walking around wounded with a loaded gun in your mouth.
I speak to you as a Father who loves you unconditionally. Let me leave you with these last few thoughts, When is the last time I assassinated one of my own children because of some injustice done to Me? When have you ever heard Me destroy someones character to defend or protect myself from their misbehavior?
When hurt people finally get healed they will no longer hurt people to find love.
*** Father by the time we are at this point of reading we cannot run or hide as you are looking right at us. We cannot run away from this. Even if we could, where can we go that you are not? Lord before I get lost in another days activities I bow my head and admit, I am guilty. I am hurt, I am wounded and without your help I will continue this behavior and I want it to stop. I am not asking for a quick fix, a miracle or a patch. I'm looking for a healing that will transition with me into every area of my life.
I will not run, hide or blame any longer. Talk to me Daddy...
He is Faithful 08/15/12
My child who said, I wouldn't take care of you? Who said I wouldn't show up? Who is lying to you? I have not lied to you when I said I will provide. I have not lied to you when I said I would show up.
When you were young did you ever seen My righteous forsaken or their seed begging bread? Well, now that you are older it is the same. I care for you. I watch for you and I will always provide for you.
Who is it, who are they that profess I will leave My children orphans? Who whispers in your ear? It is not Me My child, It is not Me.
Do not entertain other voices. Do not listen to them who are God mockers and God scoffers.There are contentious men all about you. I can see this. They lay a trap with their words, snares for the weak and weary.
Yes,My child this journey has wearied you but do not entertain strangers. Their mouths are filled with guile and the place they desire to take you is filled with poison, venomous snakes. All is not what is seems on the outside.Their inside is rotten and they are full of dead mans bones.The fire of hell itself keeps them warm. They reach out their fingers towards the innocent and try to beguile those who are passers by.
Do not entertain the shadows, do not listen to them. I will provide, I will come as I always have. I am your Father, I cannot lie.
This day, rebuke the devourer in Jesus name. Plead the blood of Christ over yourself and stand firm in the knowledge, yes the might of My word.
There is no need to contend with them. I have not called you to contentions and strife. I have not called you to testify to your accusers about your righteousness. You have been made holy and righteous through Christ not of your own works lest you should boast. The enemy would love nothing more than for you to defend yourself from this position.
He is the accuser of the brethren and in his mouth are nothing but lies. He is the father of lies and in him and those who do his will the truth cannot be found. Twisted scriptures, mangled with pride and arrogance create knots of deceit and deception which cannot and will not be undone in this lifetime. Only the fires of hell itself shall secure him.
Who is this who whispers in your ear? Who has lied to you and tried to steal your peace? Have I not said, Have I not done it before? Then I will do it again and again and again… I will save you. I will rescue you. I will pardon you. I will feed you. I will heal you.I will deliver you. I will set you free. I will provide for you. Is there anything to hard for Me says the Lord?
Do not listen to the lies of the enemy one more minute. Actually, even as you have been reading this… your mind has been preoccupied and the voices have stopped. For a mere moment you have taken your attention away from him and put it back on Me. You are free My child you have been delivered from the snare of the fowler. Rejoice you are free. Rejoice in Me. The horse and the rider have been thrown into the sea.
Take a moment and read Exodus 15 The Song of Moses and Miriam
Father, We thank you so much for your deliverance, for your faithfulness, for your goodness and mercy. Truly they have been following me all my life and many times I knew it not because I listened to the voice of another. But even in my folly, even in my foolishness, even in my naivety you were there. You have always come because you love me. I am your child who is ever grateful to you and your promises. Today at this very moment I am free from the foul mouth of the enemy and his devices will hold me captive no more. I am free in Jesus name.
It is my deepest desire that this word has blessed you. We pray for you often.
Where did He go? 7/16/12 It was a sunny afternoon much like most days, muggy and thick with dust as people traveled up and down the road in front of the house. The archways were alluring due to their shade and hidden just around the corner was a door. If He were physically walking the earth today, do you think He would have stopped here? Where did He go when He wanted someone to talk to? Where were His private places to frequent so he could just get away, escape the madness that seemed to grow with intensity each day? Where did He go? To whom did He turn when He needed a friend, a confidant to speak with about the dreams the visions He was having? He must have had someone. We know He went to the temple with His parents. Did He find God in the temple with all the learned men? Did He hear His Father talking to Him through these people? We know at only age 12 He asked questions that the most learned man of the day was confounded by. Where did He go? To whom did He turn to upon this earth? I would like to think that if I was alive then or vice verse that He would find comfort in my home. That He would feel safe talking about His dreams, visions and possibly His fears. I would like to think I could be that kind of friend and confidant. After all He was just a man likened to us and He no doubt needed friends just like we do. Yes, I would like to think He would like to come in out of the heat, dust and dirt of the day to rest with me. What do you think? Could you have been a confidant to the savior of the world before He went to the cross. He had twelve that said they loved Him and would die for Him yet all ran away except one, John. I want to be like John. I want to know that when He needs a friend He could turn, no He would actually make an effort to come to my house after He passed so many. Lord, you know my name, you know where I live. If you happen to need a place to call home, mine is available. Don't pass me by but stop in and rest... I'm your friend.
July 1, 2012 My Child, You will need to balance yourself in this next season but not as you suppose. I am also not asking you to brace yourself as if to wait for some sudden impact from an outside source. July shall see you breaking through barriers that the enemy would have set up if you were not aware but you have been made aware My child. We are on the offensive not the defensive. I am with you right now. I am your strength, your provision and your power. I am your arms and your legs during this time. Heed My voice and together we shall press forward. We are not only pressing into the spirit but I am commanding you to lean forward. You will not lose your balance. I have you. I am holding you, I am charging you and commanding you to lean forward as far as you possibly can and then a little more. Your breakthrough is just in front of you. Your ability to breakdown any and all obstacles the enemy tried to establish is possible if you will just heed My voice. I say lean forward and on My command, press in, push forward, digging in your heels and press. The barriers in front of you are/were poles and posts the enemy was trying to build right before your eyes. If he had succeeded you would have had to jump over a wall then run through a troop waiting for you on the other side but I say today I have exposed the enemy and his tactics. Before he could have established a thing so as to turn your posture from offense to a defense but I say July is your month to Breakthrough, and Breakdown of any and all barriers obstacles set up by the enemy.
You are not an innocent child, nor are you naive' but a soldier in Christ. Take up your weapons of warfare and lay siege on the enemy. I did not say there would be a great battle, nor have I proclaimed bloodshed but rather use the weapons of My choosing. I command you to clap your hands thus striking your enemy upon the head. Clapping our hands means to blow, to strike or smite the enemy. Clapping thrusts a sound into the ears of the enemy of which he cannot comprehend. He is and can be vanquished by this method. Leaning forward is called,Ealaz which means to jump, to leap, to gush out or jet forward. Doing this maneuver will make you stand out from the rest as you lean into not away from the battle line. You will actually be projecting yourself towards the enemy and together we shall take back what the enemy perceived was his.
I have seen your heart, I have seen your resolve, although weak at times remember it is My strength which makes you strong. It is not by your might or your power but by My Spirit that we shall have sweet victory. July is your month. You are not on the defensive but I say lean forward and clap with all your might thus striking your enemies head, blinding his eyes, piercing his ears and surprising him totally. I have not given you a spirit of fear but of power love and a sound mind.
In this hour I will give you a balanced strategy to defeat the enemy who is desperately trying to build an encroachment right before your eyes. Ask for your eyes to be opened and you will see that he has just started to build his defenses and obstacles but if you can hear Me and obey Me you shall not only eat the good of the land but defeat the enemy at the same time with minimal effort.
Hear what the Spirit of God is saying in this hour.
"Definitions of clapping and leaning are first given by God but borrowed from a book entitled, Dance, Dance, Dance. This little book explains but does not exhaust scriptural references concerning dance and movement as used in the bible. Prophet Tom has used this book for many years realizing the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty to God unto the pulling down of fortifications, destroying counsels and defeating the enemy. You just have to have a Rhema word from Father God, Follow His instructions no matter how foolish or improbable it seems and our victory will be secured."
Have you ever been committed? July 2011
My Child, Have you ever pondered the concept of your commitment verses what I've committed to you? I mean, have you ever examined the root or have you just been enamored by your own fruit? Today I want to examine the roots, your roots.
My Child these words are closely associated but they are worlds apart in interpretation. Your commitment is actually something that stems from you or begins with you. It's does not have to have any outward stimulus to be activated. If it's a thought, it has the potential to be a seed. But without examining the roots, the beginning or the origin of your thoughts it could be very well that the fruit you now possess may have originated from your personal commitments to self and not things I've committed to you. You've heard about them. They are called, self fulfilling prophecies. Obviously they are not of Me.
Have I caught you at a good time to discuss these things? If so, lets be honest wouldn't it be better to find out now than later that your thoughts are not My thoughts and your ways have not been My ways?
On Being Committed: My Child when I have committed something to you this means I've entrusted you with something that was not previously yours. I am the originator, the author, the beginning of the seeds, the thoughts and ultimately I'm responsible to what happens to the fruit. I am God and I am also the master of the vineyard. The vines,thoughts,ideas,plans I plant will come to pass. My thoughts will produce not just good fruit but will far surpass any fruit of man made plans or ideas. What I plant brings forth life but man made plans will bring forth death. Personal commitments made outside of Me bare no eternal fruit but only that which satisfies for the moment that you created it for, then comes death.
But when I have committed something to you then you have come into a type of relationship which is not based on your own techniques and strategies. I do not commit things to just anyone. No man becomes master or ruler without first being tested to see whom and where his commitment and allegiance really lie and the key factor is are the origination's of your commitments from Me or yourself?
My desire is for us to examine what you believe to be your true commitment. It is My desire to see you fully commissioned according to My desires and not yours. It is My desire to give you more commitments but to who much is given even more is required. Luke 12:48
There really is a difference between your personal commitments and that which I've actually committed to you. If your not happy with your fruit check the root.
I have a shovel.
Things I commit to some people:
My Apostles for the building of churches... My Prophets hold My knowledge while they also carry the secrets of your heart. My Evangelist points any and all to Christ. My Pastor is to lead My flock continually back to Me. My Teachers are to break open the Word so you can understand Me.
Each office has been commissioned by Me. Every person commissioned has been tested and thoroughly examined by Me. Then come the things I will commit to you. You become My standard bearers because I have committed to you My servants sacred knowledge. You will see more than you can say, you will hear more than you can recite or repeat and you will carry their burden around in your heart.
This much I will commit to you My servants. If you violate this it should make you examine the roots of your justification. Did you just make a personal commitment of which you can't keep or did I actually commit it to you?
There is a difference. Check the fruit
7-25-11 Hello Everyone, This is prophet Tom writing to you from very hot New England. If we had any question about spring turning into summer... Well, there is no doubt we've changed seasons. Like I had mentioned in one of my recent letters, Father God has literally walked with us into a new place. He said He would never leave us or forsake us. My friend He will not abandon us even to our own logic, master plans an ideas for very long and just in case if you were still wondering, I want to give you some added comfort. When He doesn't intervene quickly and it feels like He has left you remember, He has a reason which coincides with His season. There are always lessons to learn, always. Again just remember, no matter where you are in life He is watching you ever so closely.
Total invasion of privacy.
I always thought that there was only only one thing more invasive than having a bodily X-ray and that would be surgery but I was wrong as you'll find out in our latest article. If you've traveled at all lately then you have met with either the option of a full body pat down or full body scan. Many people believe this is a violation of their privacy. Now if this is considered an invasion of privacy have you ever thought about what happens when you come into the real presence of God? He could do a body pat if He felt like it but understand this, when you come into His presence He is doing X- rays. We are literally being scanned not just physically but mentally, emotionally, spiritually, financially and what ever else He wants to scan. This all happens in the blink of an eye. One shutter click and it's over. If we know God does this then how could we lie about our test results? After all he's holding the X-ray up as proof.
Many Ministers are His X-ray technicians and lab assistants while His Prophets are often used as His direct associates. Case in point: This happened many years ago when Lynn and I were able to do small home group prayer meetings. Unannounced to Lynn or I Father God would use Lynn to minister to peoples injured body parts. I'm not talking visible malfunctions but things like lymph nodes, glands, vertebrate and herniated discs, dislocated shoulders maligned backs and spines. God ministered greatly back then. Another example was while we were in the privacy of our hotel room amongst other ministers Lynn even prophesied out loud that someone present had a bunion. Lynn didn't know who it was but said she had it on her right foot. Dr Anne Peterson started laughing and kicked off her shoe, sure enough there it was.
Because Lynn and I were newly married and I just recently taught her how to hear from God I was stunned at her accuracy and clarity in which she saw internal body parts. She said, when we start praying I see God doing an X-ray of peoples bodies and I just share what I see, veins bones everything. Then I speak it out and hope I'm right. Before this time I didn't know what an L3 or an L 4 was but Lynn did. Father used her meeting after meeting as His X-ray tech and together we were His ministering physicians.
Now while some years have passed I am not sure Lynn works in that capacity any more but Prophet. Tom is still going strong in the area of expertise He has given me which is a heart specialist. I was a general spiritual practitioner many years ago but now I deal with internal things.
Just like Lynn, Father has given me the ability not to analyze backs but the heart, the mind and all manner of relationship issues. I'm always amazed when I'm out somewhere and Father decides to take an X-ray. Often I'm not asking Him to take one, never mind Him asking me to read it. I make lots of notes about what He shows me. Do you feel naked yet? Are you ready to scream that's an invasion of privacy? I know that but before Him the whole world is naked and even with all that He sees and knows about all of us He still loves you and so don't I. Just remember the next time you email me, call me or see me in person I just might be reviewing your X-ray. Please don't try to hide God's X-rays are real and He's not a man that He would lie. He said, Believe on His prophets and you shall prosper, you shall live.
2 chronicles 20:20
Besides that, all counseling and ministry done in private is kept confidential. So you don't have to worry, your X-rays are safe with me.
Until next time remember, You are thought of daily, prayed for often an loved always.
Blessings, Prophet Tom
The Boston Bruins WON !!! It's been a long time coming There is something built into each of us and that is the desire to succeed, to win. It is this driving force that propels the mediocre right over the top. Working towards this goal could take years as we seen in the lives of famous patriarchs. Remember God can use anyone or anything to inspire us...
The Boston Bruins last Stanley Cup Championships were in 1970 and 1972. It has been many years since the glory and honor of this trophy has been in our midst. Simply our reaction could be likened to when King David brought the ARK back into the city. The people and the city came alive. They found hope restored, new vision and a sense of pride and accomplishment. The Bruins are our local team and we are so proud of what they accomplished. Their ability to press in in spite of what the opposition could throw at them, they overcame. How much more are we able to do and accomplish in Christ?
Press in, Dig deeper and Do not despair. We are the champions.
My child the seasons of change are upon you. My wind is once again beginning to fill your sails. I implore you to be still for a moment. Still your soul. You have waited upon Me and you have waited some more. At times thinking,"Did we miss Him? Is there something which restrains Him?" and My response to you is this,
My Child, who and what can restrain Me once I've made up My mind? What I've said I will do, I will certainly do. There is no power in heaven and there is no sin upon the earth which can restrain Me once I've made up My mind. You see Me through a veil when I see you through blood. The blood of My Son was shed for all your iniquities, for all your transgressions and it covers all your sins. What I see and how you feel do not match up normally but you must remember, the circumstances of your life are governed by Me. You are not so powerful as to inhibit Me from performing something as basic as releasing the wind. I'm getting ready to release the wind.
Listen in the stillness of this moment and you will hear My voice as Elijah did. I will give you directions, I will instill confidence. It's not important what drove you there. It's not important what you think or what you believe. When I decide to come I come. Adam and Eve did not ask Me to come yet I came walking in the cool of the day looking for them. Moses didn't look for Me. On the contrary, he believed his season had passed due to his mistakes. I didn't declare it was over and in the fullness of time I came. I appeared to Abraham and Gideon as well. Each did not look for My coming and neither could stop it. When David wasn't looking for Me I sent Samuel to anoint him as a child and when David wasn't inquiring of Me when involved with Uriah and Bathsheba I showed up again.
My Child you don't understand, when it's time for Me to show up,nothing, no one, no spirits or demons or sin shall separate you from Me. The blood has already been shed. I see you clean, I see you holy, I see you righteous, I see you capable, I see you victorious, I see you prosperous, I see you delivered, I see you free. I see the enemy defeated, I see you above not beneath. I see the power that resides in you and I see your frame. I know you are dust. I know you are a vapor but you are Mine.
I have you in My palm and you are in My plan. You are in My will and you are are walking in My way, even in the times you don't feel like it. Faith is not fueled by your feelings but neither does its flame go out. For in you is the faith of God not the faith of man. It's not man given but God breathed and inspired. I gave you faith to come to Me, this same faith shall sustain you. It cannot be taken from you. It cannot be lost. The faith of God, My faith which resides in you was planted upon conversion and these circumstances which you now face are not an obstacle which can stop Me. The wind is beginning to blow. I talk in the wind, I walk in the wind, I fight in the wind, My Spirit comes like the wind.
Behold your seasons change even now. I'm blowing My breath and have spoken My word. It shall not return to Me void but it will perform what I set it forth to do. You are My Word which I sent to earth. You cannot fail nor can you return to Me prematurely. You have an assignment. You have a job and you will fulfill your destiny. I will and I am glorified in you with you and through you during this time. I'm proud of you, I adore you and I believe in you when all others don't or have forgotten your name. In the night when you sleep, when it's still, listen for the breeze and like Samuel you will hear Me whispering your name. Just say, "Speak, for your Servant hears. 1 Samuel 3:10. And I will speak to you and you will know it's Me. I will lead you and guide you in the way you are supposed to go. My Word shall surround you and we will go. You are born of the Spirit, and live by the same. John 3:8
Your seasons have changed. I have spoken.
When God speaks, light appears, darkness flees,flesh is made alive and mountains fall. Valleys rise up to become flat plains. The ocean and sea do not go past their boundaries because He has spoke. His voice is more powerful than a two edged sword, a chariot and a spear. When God has spoken who can stand against Him? His voice shatters the cedars of Lebanon and can open the earth to swallow His enemies. At His command water comes from rocks, manna from Heaven and coins from a fishes mouth.
At the sound of His voice a sea parted, Lazarus was raised from the dead and lepers healed. Blind eyes opened, lame walk and deaf hear. Mutes speak, storms flee, towers come down. Captives are set free, prison doors open, Holy Spirit falls. At the sound of His voice Adam and Eve were dispelled, angels dispatched and Satan cursed. Children were born,promises given and heirs to be conceived. Our decedents will out number sand and stars because He has spoken. The promises of Abraham are passed down and we are children of promise. His voice declares the victory, He fights for us. He shatters the teeth of the wicked, casting them into hell. His voice cheers us on, tells us to stop and when to rest. His voice is medicine to our bones, water to our soul and life unto our spirit. His voice calls us out of darkness into His light. His voice echos throughout all of creation, even nature speaks of Him.
His voice comforts us when we are dying, but is also the voice of our loved ones which welcome us home when we don't. His voice gives us direction, chastises us, corrects us and rebukes us. His voice floats in the wind as seen with Gideon. At the shout of His voice walls fall down. His voice is the most powerful persuasive force known to mankind. His voice rolls in the thunder but can also whisper in the breeze. His voice opens up the depths and water comes forth. He speaks again and it goes away. His voice doesn't create miracles for all things are in Him already. He is perfect in all His ways and all He does. He alone is God and there is none beside Him. Who can counsel Him once He has spoken. He decrees a thing and it is. He curses a thing and it is not. He is the author of life and by His voice do His children follow but the voice of a stranger they will not. By His voice He leads and guides us. By His voice we are made free, healed, delivered and set free. By His voice are we pardoned and made sons and daughters of righteousness. Heirs to everlasting life and finally by the sound of His voice creation as we know it will fold up and become brand new. All by the sound of His voice.
Who says we don't have the power of life and death in our tongue? If He lives in you then you are and should be an extension of His voice in the earth. When you open it be careful how you use it. The gift of prophecy is inside all of us if He lives breathes moves and dwells inside your being. If you never have asked before then do so today, simply ask:
Father speak through me concerning these matters at hand. Be my voice and my reason and the power behind this simple thing we call a voice.
Music & Japan My Children I have not forsaken you as some have suggested, nor has My wrath come upon the earth to judge. Many have prophesied about Japan and many have been the speculations. Some have said, America's judgement was averted and Japan was hit instead, this is false. Many have said, Because of sin that Japan has seen My wrath and this is not true. Common sense should tell you if you build anything over a fault line it will eventually open up. If you build over soft ground where sink holes are known to appear then you are at risk. The same is if you live to close to the waters edge or in a district prone to hurricanes. If you live there you must have evaluated the risk factor into the equation did you not? My word says, When you build on sand and when the storms of life hit you shall see devastation. The storms of the life are not all My fault. If you see Me as a God who has to always resort to calamity to get the attention of people then you are wrong again. It is My Love that compels people to come in not hurricanes and tornadoes. The storms that you are seeing are normal under the stress and conditions that the earth is under and certainly the ruler of this age is edging people to assume I am the cause of punishing creation for sin. He is the enemy of your soul not I. Out of this catastrophe you shall see a song, a fresh new song develop that will start off as a sweet fresh wind on a cool spring day.My fragrance and the perfumed songs of heaven shall start encompassing the earth. These songs and this music will vindicate Me as being the cause of this mayhem. Look to the east for the beginning of the music. For those who have an ear to hear listen for the sounds of love and compassion to come forth.
Relief will not come from the west nor will there be an attack from the north but I have overshadowed them says the Lord. It is by My own right hand that I have stopped this calamity and I will accompany them as they find their melody and harmony once again.
Friday April 1st, 2011
My son you're off balance, woozy. Lord I feel like crying I'm so weak.
Going through surgery isn't that painful but it's the afterwards. The
emotional effects of self analysis, the cutting away. The understanding
that comes due to the surgery. I don't know if anybody knows the toll it
takes to do this stuff?
My son, many people will not pay the price to be free. It's easier to
live their life looking out their window, not windows. They have one
view one perspective, not many. So they view you in part not whole. When
you move out of their view they cannot nor do they understand what you
are doing or talking about. Their limitations are self imposed but so is
Freedom is free but will cost you everything to keep it, maintain and
grow in it. Each time you share a piece of yourself, when you give an
intimate piece of yourself away they become more and you become less.
They more aware and you less restricted.
My son your sharing has brought insight and revelation to you but Lord
it's not me I'm worried about, it's them. They know in part and they see
in part and they have limited understanding of who I really am, And we
both know a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
People who see me think they know me and when I do something
uncomfortable to them they say things like, that's out of character but
my son how can they know your character from a disadvantaged vantage
Although uncomfortable your continued sharing will open many doors for
people. They will hunger for freedom likened to what they see you do.
Then I will ask them to pay the price of self examination and exposure
like you are and have been willing to pay.
People do need a leader an example to follow. My son you are it, you are
one of many who are paying the price and many will follow. Truly they
and you will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your
testimony and you and they will not love your lives even unto death.
3/12/11 1) New beginnings, I see new
beginnings for you My child. What you have seen and what you presently
are viewing are not all that I have for you. New beginnings. I tell you
that more than Spring has come, It is more than clocks being moved
forward it is time. It is My time and My season for you to be healed, to
prosper to step out and over into those things which I have promised
you. I am not a man that I should lie and the vision did not tarry, it
is not late. See that I have come to set at liberty those who were
bound. It was not your body which held you back but your mind. Receive your total deliverance today. Receive the new, enjoy the sun and the freedom that your new day brings with it. At this moment I have no new instructions for you.
I have no prescriptions for your success, just step outside and feel
the sun on your face. Relax and enjoy the moment because now you are
3/14/11 2) My
grace is dwindling upon you. It is nothing that I've done says the Lord
but you My child. I've called some of you out of business into ministry
while some have made My ministry a business. You know who you are and
you have known for some time but you have decided to continue on the
course you are on. You will see a marked change in your ability to
function in the spirit this year. My grace which was sufficient for the
calling in which I've called you will decrease this year. It is not
until you turn back to the calling I have for you that a turn around
3) Why do you continue to teach when I've called you to be a prophetic minister.
You have leaned upon the arm of flesh for too long. Your training and
skill were meant for Me says the Lord not the world. My children starve
because they have no one to feed them. You are called to work and
function in the prophetic and instead you have chose the easy way out to
become a self appointed teacher. You will see a change in the course of
action that you had planned. Who will save you then?
Health issues will arise as if they have not already and they will
continue to increase. You keep asking Me to heal you but you continue to
kick against the pricks. There is only one way and it is My way.
The sickness you battle will continue to plague you and if not stopped
will eventually overtake you. I have made provision for your healing. It
is in My plan but you could miss it if you continue working yours.
5) I see you all the way in Russia, even if you were to hide in the Siberian Straight I would find you.My
eyes are not blind nor My ears deaf to your cry. I hear your prayers
even in the corner of that darkened room. Your recent conversion is not
recent, but that sudden urge to do something is. Although you struggle
with thoughts of inadequacy and over all inability, I still choose you.
Yes you heard right I choose you. Start that church I've told you to.
They will come, they have no where else to go.You will see you
will be a voice in that region. You have already been a voice crying in
the wilderness and I have heard the cry of your heart and the words of
your mouth, start the church. I will bless it. (if you contact me I will pray for you and the start of this new work, Prophet Tom)
6) Louisiana My
child I have seen the beating and the batterings you have gone through.
They are for not for naught. I have a plan of salvation for you. Out of
the ashes and rubble I am raising a new church. Not the old one built
and established on religion but I've come to cut a new covenant with
you. No longer will you be the brunt of jokes but My hand of favor is
upon you this season. Revival shall come forth as smoke plumes come from
your outer banks. Prayer will be lifted up and it will not be denied.
No man shall own this work it will be sovereign and it will be grace
extended to you.
7) New York New York I have see your play
and I have seen the stage set for the harlot. I have seen the
conspiracies and I have seen what has passed under the table. Do you
think I do not see all things? You are not able with one hand to wipe
yourself both with the hand of Christianity and the hand of deceit. I
have allowed what could have been a fatal blow to you and you repented
for a moment of time but I say you will once again be brought to your
knees. It does not have to be done in violence as some think. Although I
am a God who judges thee I do not have to administer violence as a
means of sentencing, that would be carnal, I am God. My presence can
simply invade your city streets. My presence alone can and will bring
your city back to its knees. I am calling you to tell you I am coming New York, I am coming once again.
January 2nd 2011 THE COVERING
My child I see you when you first lay upon your bed in the darkness, You think the corners of the room are to far away to feel safe and secure, I understand. Don't worry I am with you. More than watching, I am here. My child I see you, I hear you. I have never left you despite what you have been told by others. Did I not say I would be your covering and your protection in your time of trouble? I never said troubled times would not come, I said I would be with you through them. I did not promise you a life that was trouble less but I promised I would be with you through it all. I cover you My child just as your sheets cover you in the evening. In the darkest moment of the night I am there but I was also with you when you first lay down. My child I see you and I hear you. I really do.
I am there even though you cover yourself from above the head. In the midst of your moment when there is none other around and you breathe the last of the days cool air before your body heat starts to rise underneath your blanket, I am there. You feel safe underneath your covering with only the sound of your heartbeat in your ears. It is quiet for the moment. It's so quiet in here.
Your voice whispers utterances from your heart although you feel in that moment that your strength was stolen from the battles of the day. Your tears are not lost upon some cotton pillows and destined to be washed away with the next rinse. I have caught them all. Your throaty whispers are written down by angels who scribe your every word. I hear your heart. I have heard your heartbeat. Yes the blanket of darkness and its shadows may have driven you underneath your covering but I am also there with you.
Hiding under blankets is not just for children My child. You are not the only adult to shrivel up in the night. Many mighty men and women of God have pulled blankets over their heads. They may be called prayer shawls to some but none the less they are a place to hide. A place to be alone although you don't wish to really be alone. A place of safety when in reality you are most vulnerable in this position as you cannot see or hear or feel if something is to come upon you.
It is in this place of refuge that I dwell. The place you come to in the night season before you sleep. Yet if you were to pull the fabric taut you would see the tiniest most minute holes in the material. Just like the stars in heaven. Each day i pull the fabric of time over you and yet when you peek into the night sky you will see glimmers of light peeking through the stars. This is Me in eternity letting you know although that you may be covered by a blanket of darkness of your own choosing there is always light. It may be small but it is there for your safety and security. It is My way of saying, I am here I see you I hear you and I love you. Do not be afraid of the night but take no confidence in the day for I am neither night of day but the creator of both. Find your comfort in Me and allow Me to be your covering in 2011.
JUST THE FACTS
December 26th, 2010
My child I would like to speak to you concerning the New Year. I would that you have an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying at this moment and not man. The spirit of man and prophecy can be dangerous and will often times lead men astray. It is my desire to speak to you about who I am and not what will be. I desire to speak about what is present, not future. If you will just hear what the Spirit is saying at this moment then you will understand just a little more of who I am and the person you say you serve. Here are just some simply stated facts:
You are fast approaching 7 billion people in the world. You have presently 195 countries and 6,912 main languages with 39,491 alternate language names and dialects. The speed of light travels at a finite speed of 186,000 miles per second and although it varies, sound travels at 768 miles per hour through dry air. Why am I saying all this? Why would I, God, recite basic human facts?
My child reciting these facts does not mean you comprehend them. Many of My children are like this, they can recite facts but they still do not comprehend Me. You say I am infinite but treat Me as finite. You quote Me like you are an authority on Me when all you have are just simple facts.
Let Me clear some things up for 2011.
While you are limited to your electronic communication I am not. I am much faster than any and all machines. Am I not the creator of all things? Facebook reaches 500 million people daily and yet this is less than 1% of the worlds total population and you still have to log on. My child no matter how big you think your outreach is and the medium you are using it is still woefully inadequate compared to Me. While you may pride yourself on e-mailing thousands of people at one time I speak to 7 billion at once, at the same time at the same minute. I am not limited by space or time, so trying to capture Me in any qualifiable time continuum is useless.
My voice is faster than the speed of light as your knowledge of light goes. Many of My children say they believe Me but they doubt Me. Many say they struggle to hear My voice and yet I am not always speaking as you perceive but I have spoken. Before you knew of your present problem the answer was already sent. Before the world cried out for a Savior He was formed. In this New Year do not limit Me with your finite knowledge.
Do not romanticize Me nor fictionalize Me. Do not categorize Me or place Me in any certain place as if I could be captured. You are not not capable of capturing the Wind nor controlling Him. You don't even know where He comes from My child. I am the creator of all the heavens and all the earth. It is chronicled in Genesis, I spoke.
My voice is a constant, it never ends, it cannot.
Do not make yourself so big and Me so small to think that only at your moment of need or desire do I speak.
Before you woke up, while you were sleeping My voice is traveling faster than light, faster than sound and is speaking to all of My creation at the same time. I speak all languages all dialects at the exact same time. I am speaking in non verbal communication as well as I am appealing to humanitys five senses. I am doing all of this to everyone and to every living thing at the exact same time. Please forgive Me because I cannot use the reference of minute or second as this is also a measured amount and I am so so much quicker and faster than that. I am more in control than you realize.
My child you are still measuring Me from your limited knowledge and perspective. My challenge to you in 2011 is give yourself permission to experience My limitless love for you.
This year do not see how much of Me you can squeeze into you. I am not as interested about that as you seem to be. I have already heard the cry of your heart concerning your New Years resolutions, to be more holy, to be more pure, to be more perfect so I will be pleased with you, as if I wasn't already. You desire to clean out your imperfections and present yourself more holy and acceptable in this New Year, was not My sons sacrifice good enough to do that?
You are not saved by good works and My voice will not become more clear to you even if you could perfect yourself. To think you could stop My voice from speaking would make you very powerful but the simple fact is, My voice shatters all barriers and sees no bounds. It is quicker than your imagination and is not held captive by your perceived darkness. My word is light.
The sound of My voice is not conditional but is a constant ever present continuous source of strength and comfort to those who will simply just listen.
Listen to My voice.
My child the altar is a special place for you to come to. It's a place of redemption, a place where you can release your burdens and once again go on with your life once you leave the altar but I beg to differ. My altar is not just a place where you can come lay down your burdens. It's not just a place where you can come to share your heart with Me. My altar is so much more than that.
You have learned that if your brother/friend/relative/boss/co worker/neighbor... has an issue with you leave your gift and go resolve the issue and then return back to My altar only after you have resolved the issue and not before. Do you not know that unresolved issues hinder your ability to receive from Me? Do you not know that I'm unable to talk to you once this scripture has been opened up to you and you do not go out from My altar? Grace and blood cannot cover you nor do you have a special exemption when you know there is an unresolved issue. My word is true:
“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.”
This may be difficult to understand but you must solve resolve the issue. You may ask, What if I leave my gift Lord at the altar and go back. What happens if I/ we can't resolve the issue, then what? My child scripture states if you know they have an issue with you go back. So the issue is really about you not them.
Humble yourself before them, resolve the issue and return to Me. Give yourself the best gift you can this year... Freedom from a little bit more of self.
Alter to come to the altar if need be.
January 16th, 2011
The Fear Of...
My child it is true, I Am the God who opens and shuts doors yet not I but My doorkeeper. Through out scripture you will find a Masters servant or doorkeeper answering the door, not the Lord of the house himself. You have been told I open and shut doors but it is by My Word that doors open and close as I give command. My child I Am not just a king but the King of Kings. I came to serve but when I came back home I am now ruling and reigning not serving as I once was. In the kingdom we are all trained to serve but do not try to continue to make Me your servant after salvation. Come into My house and learn once again the fear of the Lord.
Now concerning open doors in your life, there are many but you go through so few. Fear keeps you on the front steps. In your life I have placed relationships but you will not walk through the open door. Fear keeps you not just standing but actually living there as you have been there so long. My child the fear of the unknown,the fear of failure,the fear of rejection, the fear of...what? Am I not with you? Then what fear holds you back?
My child concerning your finances and occupation. Why do you stand at the open door of opportunity with fear in your eyes? It has utterly consumed you. Have you been doing business under the pretense it was by Me only to now hear My voice saying, it was all about you and your fear and not Me. How many business decisions have been made by the pressure of fear? How many life decisions are not being made due to fear? Fear has had a grip on you for a long time but if you are willing to completely trust Me then I will remove the fear from you and your life but you must understand the absence of ungodly fear is just the beginning of wisdom. Do not fear what men can do to you or what they will think if you truly obey Me. For when fear is gone all that will be left is your choice.
Shall I tell My doorkeeper you are coming in?

This year has been designated the year of the devil, maybe not by the christians but none the less it has been named so and 2012 will be known as the devils tail. Much of humanity hangs in the balance and there has and is a major demonic thrust which is taking place. Souls hang in the balance. Souls of men and women. His mouth shall try to devour many and many will be persuaded by the dragons breath. The myth the folklore the legend intrigues them and they are drawn away by their own lust but most of all by curiosity. Can it be real? Is it real? And they will be sucked in, consumed by the dragons breath. In 2012 his tail will create a backlash, a frantic whipping of events social and economical. Land masses will fall and oceans will rise as his tail thrashing back and forth. Although a mans heart will fail him, this is not the end as some would say. Where there are predictions they will fail and Christian prognosticators will stand with their mouth open but nothing will come out. Many voices will fall silent and the voice of him will rise as one who comes from the hills enraged. He is and has been called forth by those who have prayed for him to come. Behold he comes and still it will not be the end. You say, how shall we defeat this foe? How shall we stand against this enemy, this darkness to come? I say Worship Me My son, Worship Me My daughter. Worship Me. In the light, in My light shall the enemy of your soul flee. I have not given you the gift of eternal life for yourself alone but to be a light for those to come. Your light is not for your enjoyment and your pleasure but for the saving if souls and if necessary the giving of your life for many. In this next two years I'm commanding the singers the dancers and the banner carriers to the forefront of the battle. I demand them who are called into these positions to be that light in the front of the battle. Many of My dancers and singers have played in the shadow of selfishness too long. Petty fights and inner wars amongst yourselves will soon come to an end. Far too many struggle and fight for positions of authority to glorify self but I say come forth My true worshippers, come forth. Stand in your brokenness and worship Me. Magnify Me with your gift and present yourself as a living sacrifice and you shall My candles in the Wind, lighting the path of righteousness for the lost souls to come. Bow in the Wind, Bend in the Wind. Move in the Wind. Flow in the Wind My beauty. Sing the song of Zion and magnify My Spirit and even though thy own spirit hungers and thirsts for My righteousness, you shall be filled. Darkness calls unto darkness and has been. You are not the only one who has been praying and yet you act as if you've already won and you have not fought the war. Darkness calls unto darkness and becomes stronger still. Behold he comes, he harkens to the voice of his beloved bride. Although dark and ugly, gruesome to behold they are yet his body of believers who cry out day and night for their head. In 2011 behold he comes. What will you do? Where will you stand

Natural aptitude does not determine your spiritual altitude.
My child do to the fact that you were predisposed to function the way you do does not negate your responsibility to worship Me. Your actions and decisions tell you who is in control. Your inner workings aren't working. The peace you have is superficial at best and that smile is not always worn to bed. Your heart troubles you as you tirelessly try to figure out how to stay ahead of the stress. I see you and I watch you My child. I see you.
Growth is not supposed to hurt and increase that is from Me brings no burden. You are fearful to reach out yet you cannot retract. My my what would people think if I did this or I chose to do that? Oh I mustn't even think of that I must push on I must go forward, I am called of God, this is of God and on and on and on you go. How many more time will you run around My throne before you collapse? My child I see the end from the beginning and I know exactly when you'll stop, where you'll be when this is all over and who you will be with. I see and know how much money you'll make this year and I know exactly where every penny will be spent before it even comes into your coffer. I know your bills your wants and your desires. I see what you think you want while I alone understand your need.
I made you to worship Me and even though you do nightly, it has become a routine. Your morning devotions are just as flat. Yet this is what we do and if we somehow continue this will get better but it does not, it gets worse. The financial squeeze will not lessen up nor will the health issues. Although you cry out for a miracle you really do not believe in one. Trusting in self has brought you this far and will actually bring you a little further but it it will not be good to go to the end of yourself but pride will do what it will do. My child you have made mistakes and forgiveness is possible but humbling yourself would be in order and yet your heart says, But Lord if I admit fault and accept blame this would be devastating to my image Lord, what would people think?
I already know what they will think and it it is not as you perceive. Self has been on the throne so long that it only thinks of self and not the the good of the whole, never mind the body of Christ. This thing you call christianity has become a shallow ritual of useless expressions of which I saved you from in the beginning. Your going through the rituals and the motions but live in deception. The truth you preach and teach is benefitting others more than you. Yet you believe, if I can do this long enough there is a reward, there has to be a reward, there is always a reward for the righteous, right? Isn't there a reward for all that I've done and for all that I do Lord? The answer My child is blowing in the Wind.
My season for you has changed, the weather has changed, your present relationships are changing. Things are moving and so will you. Let go My child and follow Me. Do not be afraid of loss, for what I say is that if you hold on and you stay you will incur the loss you fear but it will not be from My hands but your own choosing. You can stay in control until the end if you choose but that is not My will for you. I'm calling you out of the shadows of mediocracy to a much higher level of anointing. It's not about you it never was.
My child let Me be your security, your blanket of warmth and the love you so desperately are looking for. Let Me in so I can speak to you more deeply. Behold I stand at the door and knock. Like so many others don't let me stay on the porch, don't keep Me waiting.
My child open your eyes and see My hand of restoration upon your life and your body instead of death. What the enemy did was a lie and you bought it hook line and sinker. You swallowed a lie and you know it but you just don't know how to stop or prevent or get out of the corner you are backed into. Give Me three months My child to turn things around. Take your hands off of all things completely and allow Me to separate the good and the bad. I swear by Myself that if you will do this healing will come into your bones. Life will come back to you and you will once again become My fruitful garden. You will sleep with a smile upon your face once more I promise.

The Next Round Please
Even when we have our own idea that we are pre-qualified it does not discount the fact there will always be an elimination or a weeding out process. In life we graduate from Universities to get careers but this does not automatically qualify us as having a job for life but we are given an opportunity to prove we were the right choice. People get fired from their career choices and ministers and ministries can be eliminated from entering into the next round by their own volition. In this next phase, gifting and talent alone will not suffice to bring you to the next level. Attitude and determination only will not get you there. Promises and prophetic words cannot keep you going but it's what lays in your heart that will determine if you go from qualification to disqualification.
From the beginning you have been gifted to do do something in this life but so have many other people been given the opportunity to enter the race. Being given an opportunity does not mean you win, it just means now the real work begins and it does not stop. Mere desire will not make you the winner, audience applause and approval will not make you the winner but each and every time you qualify to go to the next round you must continue to qualify until the end, the very end.
Father God does not like to use the term disqualification but that is what happens every time someone qualifies, someone does not. Mediocrity surrounds us in our everyday life. Each and every person believing they are the next hero, the next celebrity singer or dancer truly believes they are but what sets qualifiers apart is something much deeper in the heart.
Rumba Fox Trot Tango Waltz Charleston Cha Cha Two Step Box Step Freestyle and on and on the music goes. The rhythm and tempos pick up and so do the chances to be disqualified. Will you break under the stress or will you excel beyond and push pass the boundaries of space and time? The judge will not stop pushing, the prize will not fade nor will the responsibility associated that goes along with going to the next level.
Many of My finest worshippers singers dancers and ministers have disqualified themselves from their beginning, their self fulfilling prophecy was not from Me but of them. They had the choice to speak life over themselves and their future but they did not. Now when they could continue to be relevant and qualify they have settled into a mediocre life seeking to slide across the floor instead of dance. In this next season many of the previous relevant gifted ministries will fade out then die.They disqualified themselves I did not. I am just agreeing with what they have already judged of themselves. In this next season - move of the Spirit no one will be allowed to be mediocre. In this next season these ministers - ministries will look like faded clothes with faded glory, old worn out past the time of their own choosing. Being full of life and relevant is a choice skating on past successes will not be pleasing to those who long for the fresh new crisp work of God.
It is a competition of the best of the best and in this next season only the best will qualify and survive and thrive. Do you see yourself as qualifying or dying? The choice is, was, yours, always has been.
