James W. Goll: “Run to the Anchor of Hope! The Bigger the Storm, the Bigger the Anchor Needed”

Brat journal (01 July 20): … And when you deliberately POKE at “Anchor” every single time by Arc Speak?

Baal Shem Tov: “He took up his parable, and said: This is the word of Balaam the son of Be’or, and the saying of the man with the blinded eye. (Num. 24:3)

Yehudah Glick from Jerusalem on Facebook (01 July 20): “Mountains of Zion: From there the LORD commanded: BLESSING AND LIFE FOREVER.”

Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter Jerusalem! Lo, your king comes to you; triumphant and victorious is he, humble and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

Brookfield Farm in Devon: The Donkey Sanctuary: You’ll definitely want the sound on for this one… [https://www.facebook.com/TheDonkeySanctuary/posts/10157384921063201]

Vicki Kemper: For Isaiah, it is our identity as beloved children of God that is most important. From that, all else follows. In God, all the identities by which we are known become one whole reflection of the God who loves us.

God to Sophia Valentina Buller (29 June 20): Many once did not see clearly because Jezebel spun your name in a web of lies, deception, and deceit but now that I Have Revealed the TRUTH to ALL. Those who once hated you are now praying for you MY darling Princess Sophia 💞💞💞.  Now instead of people assuming you are Goliath, the REAL Goliath, every false witness, and every Jezebel ARE FALLEN in Jesus Name sealed by the Holy Spirit Fire and the Blood of Jesus in Jesus Name 🔥🔥🔥

Amanda Shiflett: Could this word that I released one year ago today, be a part of what we are needing right now? Lord, raise up Your army to tear down the altars that their fathers created!

Rev. Dr. Joseph Pagano: We know better. We know that our Eucharistic sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving is a participation in the eternal sacrifice of Christ before the throne of heaven. Forever, for all times and for everyone, in the triune life of God, Christ offers himself for us and for our salvation. We know this, and yet the pandemic reveals how often we behave as if it is our job to provide the Eucharistic presence of Jesus to consumers.

John Cabello: Christ’s lesson about being a neighbor compels us to love people, even in the midst of their compulsions or transgressions.

Rev. Dr. Joseph Pagano: One burden the late modern world lays upon us is to treat religion as a commodity. We know better. We worship the Lord who is the source of all truth and value. We reject the commodification of all things. You can’t put a price tag on truth, goodness, and beauty; on life, relationships, and love; on forgiveness, reconciliation, and peace; on all the things that make life worth living.

Vicki Kemper: What is your go-to identity?

Yehudah Glick on FB (01 July 20): Because God is the Source of all goodness. Type AMEN and let us know where you are from!

Me: Amen! California [https://truthinus.wordpress.com/]

Amanda Shiflett: I believe these will be raised up here in the USA, as well as many other nations of the world in this hour! It won’t happen in every city, region, or nation, but the Lord says it will happen in many…to redeem the land for His purposes to be released there, and to bring in His final harvest!

James W. Goll: We are living in crazy and uncertain times. Everything that can be shaken is being shaken. The bigger the storm, the bigger the anchor that is needed to keep the ship secure.[1]

Ascent rabbis: I heard in the name of the Baal Shem Tov the intention of Onkelos here. The Midrash asks why G·d chose to rest His Presence on such a wicked gentile as Balaam? And it answers, so that the gentile nations will not have any allegation [against G·d] saying, “Had you given us prophets, we too would have improved our ways.”[1][2]

Amanda Shiflett: Most importantly, they will tear down the “altars to Baal” that were built by their own father’s house, and build an altar to the one true God! The very things their own fathers allowed in the land and territory, and even perhaps participated in, which allowed the enemy to have rights in their own families and in the regions, will be brought down by these mighty Gideon warriors. They will stand up against these things and say “No More!”

God to Sophia Valentina Buller (27 June 20): Right now I AM Burning the altar if witchcraft down to ruin in Jesus Name 🔥🔥🔥

Rev. Dr. Joseph Pagano: This weight we cannot lift. We know this, and yet instead of repenting of our complicity in the commodification of communion, we bicker with one another over the delivery system. It is wearying.

Brat: There’s nothing I can do about “No Reply…” emails.

Rev. Dr. Joseph Pagano: The leadership in our churches has been extraordinary. They’ve done amazing work livestreaming worship, recording sermons, creating virtual choirs, checking in with people via telephone, leading online Bible studies, and attending zillions of zoom meetings.

Brat (in “Gracious” 29 June 20): Somehow, I managed to get through this lockdown without doing video calls or Zoom or the like.  I don’t know how to do this.  But, on the blessing side, it offers me time to think on what I am observing.

Rev. Dr. Joseph Pagano: And yet, we also hear how wearying all this has been. Learning new technologies is frustrating. We spend hours upon hours recording and uploading a fifteen-minute sermon or a four-minute hymn and wonder how can this be. Online meeting formats seem designed to suck the life out of people, leaving us depleted.

Rick Joyner (30 June 20): “Subjection in minor affairs breaks out every day and is felt by the whole community indiscriminately. It does not drive men to resistance, but it crosses them at every turn, till they are led to surrender the exercise of their own will. Thus their spirit is gradually broken and their character enervated; whereas that obedience which is exacted on a few important but rare occasions only exhibits servitude at certain intervals and throws the burden of it upon a small number of men. It is in vain to summon a people who have been rendered so dependent on the central power to choose from time to time the representatives of that power; this rare and brief exercise of their free choice, however important it may be, will not prevent them from gradually losing the faculties of thinking, feeling, and acting for themselves, and thus gradually falling below the level of humanity.” ―Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Rev. Dr. Joseph Pagano: A second way late modern society boxes us in is by saying religion must be a purely private matter. As long as we keep our faith to ourselves, we will be tolerated. Cross the line and dare to speak about matters of public concern and we get labeled as fanatics, or at least as unintentional accomplices to fanatics.

Brat: Jezebel was tolerated, too. (Revelation 2:20)

God to Sophia Valentina Buller (27 June 20): MY darling Princess Sophia 💞💞💞 the warfare is intense because I Have ELEVATED you MY darling Princess Sophia 💞💞💞. The wolves assume they can take you out before anyone noticed, BUT I HAVE THE FINAL SAY MY DARLING PRINCESS SOPHIA SEALED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT FIRE AND THE BLOOD OF JESUS IN JESUS NAME 🔥🔥🔥

Anthony Medina (01 July 20): As I learned all of this information pertaining to what the Lord had shown me, I asked what it all meant. He said, “There is a fierce battle in the spirit pertaining to the dispensing of wisdom on the earth for what to do and how to proceed in many things. One wisdom is Kingdom wisdom rooted and grounded in the knowledge of God. The other is a false, gnostic, distorted wisdom that is looking to lead people into confusion and wrong decision making.” Then, regarding my vision about the two fighters, He said, “The haymakers that they were throwing at each other is important.”

Revelation 14:A second angel followed and said, “‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great,’ which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries.”

James W. Goll: Run to a Trusted Community

Brat: Even if you didn’t write your piece to deliberately poke at me, the Elijah List takes your word to post in Arc Speak to mine.

Hebrews 10: 26 For if we sin willfully after having received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

Brat: Y’all poke, poke, and poke at ANCHOR as if trying to wear me down in my identity in Christ.  I am an ANCHORESS for Christ’s sake; anchored in Christ!  Am I offended?  Are you?  What offense have I ever done to you?  I have reached out in friendship and honesty over and over.  I have given you the benefit of the doubt over and over.  And yet you swipe with a Grim Reaper scythe mocking my identity.  No!!  Back off!

James W. Goll: The enemy takes advantage of our doubts. Did God really say that? Is anything an absolute truth? Down I would go. Well, maybe God does love people in general, but I’m so far from Him that I don’t think He loves me like He used to. I am just another number.

[Foot stomp. Turning to Jesus.]

Vicki Kemper: But what about identity theology?

James W. Goll: As one of my fathers in the faith told me, “The book of Job is still in the Bible.” God has never changed the way life works. What the devil meant for evil, God will always turn for the good. You will discover hope more quickly if you learn to partner with God.

Israel 365 (26 June 20): The words in this verse [Job 9:4], translated as “wise of heart,” are understood by the Sages to mean “wise about hearts,” or “wise about innermost thoughts.” This means that Hashem knows what is in people’s hearts, and judges them accordingly. While man has the capacity to judge his fellow only by what is obvious to the human eye, Hashem knows what is really in a person’s heart. Iyov’s [Job’s] friends understand this in a negative sense; while Iyov seems righteous externally, he must have committed sins in secret. However, the opposite is also true. Someone might seem evil on the outside, but might have good intentions in his heart. It is man’s challenge to behave as God does, and instead of making assumptions solely on the basis of external appearances, to understand that there is more in a person’s heart that might not be apparent from the outside. We are therefore called upon to judge others favorably by always giving them the benefit of the doubt. This rings so true today, as society is up in arms against this very idea – judging based on appearance! We must always be careful to never judge a book by its cover.

Sophia Valentina Buller (30 June 20): People tend to judge what they cannot possibly understand ❤️❤️❤️

Rev. Dr. Joseph Pagano: This is a wearying time for the church. Our Gospel lesson offers genuine comfort to those of us who are weary and carrying heavy burdens. Yet we must guard against turning Jesus into someone or something he is not. He is not a commodity that we distribute to consumers. He is not a professor of political theory. He is not a modern therapist. He is the One whom we meet in Matthew’s Gospel: the personification of Wisdom, the Son of God, Israel’s Messiah, the Crucified and Risen Lord, the founder of the Messianic Kingdom, the One who promises true rest, sabbath rest, foretold in creation, made flesh and blood in his person, fulfilled in the Messianic banquet.[3]

Hebrews 10: 23 Let us hold fast to the profession of our faith without wavering (for He is faithful who promised),

Anthony Medina (01 July 20): As I heard all of this I went back into the vision of the boxing match, but now I was able to identify which fighter was which. Godly wisdom was in gold trunks with the word “wisdom” in red. Gnostic (or demonic) wisdom was in all black—even the word “wisdom” was in black. There was also now an audience in the building, but instead of sitting and watching the bout, they were all on their knees. Then the Lord said, “It is the praying remnant; they are doing what they are supposed to, but some are weary.”

Brat: Most holy God, I come before You on my knees.  I lay my head on the foot of Your cross and feel the splinters of the wood dig into my forehead.  I feel Your blood drip onto my neck as I have my head bowed.  Your tears drip onto my hands as You cry out, “My God, my God, why have You forsaken Me??” The four living creatures and the 24 elders have left you looking as if You were slain. (Revelation 5:6) But, You are still King of the universe!

When Light Came In (1 July 20): Beautiful. Powerful. Truth to soak in.

Rev. Dr. Joseph Pagano: And yet, the pandemic has exposed how often we treat religion as a commodity. We offer user-friendly versions of Christian faith to help seekers round out their journeys to self-fulfillment. Because we could not gather for worship in our church buildings, we fretted about how to provide worship, deliver sermons, and offer pastoral care remotely. In The Episcopal Church, unedifying squabbles over virtual communion have been revealing. How do we get the presence of Christ in the bread and the wine, in the hands and the mouths, in the hearts and the souls of the faithful?

Hebrews 10: 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as ye see the Day approaching.

Brat: Father, I forgive them whether or not they know what they are doing.  I still love them.  That doesn’t mean I have to be friends with them. Setting boundaries is a loving thing to do, and Your cross is the boundary I set up and go to.  I share and they don’t write me back anyway…

The Diddens: As we begin this novena, let’s turn to the great cloud of witnesses we have — the saints in heaven, and ask them to pray for us.

Revelation 14:15 Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.”

Brat: Others may be saying a novena in the cloud of witnesses, but that doesn’t touch me.  They are in the stands and are growing weak in their intercession.  That brings me no comfort in this boxing match with Kingdom versus demonic ‘wisdom’.  They stand far off and watch the religious sporting event offering no solace.  Nothing personal.  Nothing real.  No hands and feet made heart and flesh.  Nothing incarnate.

The Diddens: Every saint we know of endured difficulties throughout their life. They know that we need Jesus, they know that we need the Holy Spirit’s guidance.

Darren Canning (30 June 20): When I first heard this, I didn’t really feel the need to have an emailing list. But this word of wisdom burned in my heart and I finally knew I had to do something about it. When I started the mailing list it became fruitful quickly. To date it has never taken steps back, only forward.

Brat: I speak LIFE not death into this Fluffy Bunny storm in the cloud of unknowing!  The emails just go out and out and out… That posture isn’t caring for my wounds (or for theirs in the end, either).  I have already shared what would be considered “fresh water” for me in this parched drama, but the Arc Speak drones on and this is not refreshing.  I rebuke this!  I have said what is acceptable in their sight (and mine), but they continue to turn a blind eye.  Balaam’s parable.  They chose not to listen and to hear only what was convenient for themselves.

Zechariah 9:11 As for you also, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit.

Anthony Medina (01 July 20): I then saw the corner crew of godly wisdom come and begin to work on those in the stands that were growing weak in their intercession. They were given fresh water, their wounds were cared for and words of life were spoken over them. As they were revived by the corner crew, the tone and momentum of the bout shifted in the favor of godly wisdom.

Darren Canning (30 June 20): Many words of wisdom come to me. As I have developed my ministry I have had senior ministers come to me who have walked a similar path to what I have walked. One such minister said, “Darren, you have a great online ministry, but you are missing something. You need to have an emailing list. Do a weekly teaching of some sort and you will grow your ministry.”[4]

Brat: If I get on their email lists then it’s just more one-way sharing.  They send me their pitch.  I try to share back but it’s not reciprocal.  It’s still a consumer-based arrangement and I get consumed.  If I disconnect from those share lists then I have no contact at all.  Then I have even less of a way of hearing where the Holy Spirit is leading the collective WE.

Rick Joyner (30 June 20): Like it or not, even in the kingdom we are told that “every man will eat the fruit of his own tree.” This is not about possessiveness or selfishness—it is about stewardship. God gave the first man the job to “tend the garden,” to be productive, and there is a deep need in us that is met when we create and produce.

Brat: Where is Your storehouse Lord, for Your “white” harvest?  Even Your hair is white. (Revelation 1:14) The laborers may be few, but even those few have not come back to me to say they want my contribution or that I belong in their camp.  They have not embraced my calling or shown me that they see any value in it to them.  You said the fathers would … would what?  Fathers are not supposed to provoke their children either.

Ryan Johnson (in “Gracious” 29 June 20): I believe that this dream speaks a reality that everyone will not be willing, yet there will be those who will embrace the fire of God (like a Blacksmith who is willing to put you back into the fire), willing to be those who ignite. They will ignite the Kingdom within (through Jesus). The Lord will clean house, as the false is being revealed and the trash is being taken out. Let us rally…IGNITE, IGNITE, IGNITE!

Rick Joyner (30 June 20): Idealism can be the worst enemy of what is good and true and just. Ideals can be good when rooted in reality and true human nature, but destructive when we base them on the unreality of what some think human nature should be. The same people who will cheer the most for the idea of sharing everything are usually the ones who won’t share, or work in the common garden, but expect everyone else to. Just check the charitable giving on the tax returns of today’s “progressives.”

Brat: I shared with you, too, and you didn’t share back.

Hebrews 10: 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

Anthony Medina (01 July 20): He then highlighted to me a scythe. A scythe is similar to a sickle, but has a longer, straighter blade and a longer handle. I then heard the Lord say, “When the fields are white with harvest you throw in your sickle to reap the harvest, but the grim reaper only reaps a harvest of death.” Sure enough, the tool that the Grim Reaper carries in all of its depictions is a scythe.

Brat: Why is it still so hard-to-impossible after all these years to have a safe place to anchor with a contemplative who reads me and is willing to engage directly with me?

James W. Goll: Worship God with your questions? You would want your questions answered, wouldn’t you? Yes, but I have discovered that one of the best ways to get them answered is to entrust them to Him in worship. Worship Him by trusting Him with your biggest, messiest questions. Tell Him you do not know the answers, but you know He does, and you will wait in full expectation for something good to come. He wants you to do this, whether you bring Him some big, philosophical or religious question or some emotion-laden, practical thing.

God to Sophia Valentina Buller (30 June 20): Your season of spiritual labor has been long💖💖💖. You have experienced opposition 💖💖💖. Your heart has gone through a beating 💖💖💖. You just want your Promises to come 🌈🌈🌈. I Know🌈🌈🌈. Today the final push is here in Jesus Name 🌈🌈🌈. The enemy cannot steal your birthright 🌷🌷🌷. You ARE MY FAMILY 🌷🌷🌷, MY daughter of Judah 🌷🌷🌷, MY Kin of the root of Jesse 🌹🌹🌹. The enemy is DEFEATED in Jesus Name and CANNOT steal from you, but MUST RESTORE EVERYTHING 🔥🔥🔥. THE ENEMY IS FINISHED IN JESUS NAME 🔥🔥🔥. THE ENEMY IS DEFEATED IN JESUS NAME 🔥🔥🔥.

John Cabello: As we see communities in turmoil, people hurting, many struggling to know what they can do to bring healing and reconciliation, let us all remember the greatest commandments we have been given: to love the Lord our God, and to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Revelation 2:1 “To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:

These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands.

God to Sophia Valentina Buller (30 June 20): The final push is the hardest push MY darling Princess Sophia 💞💞💞

Anthony Medina (01 July 20): I still was not quite understanding what I saw in the vision, so I just paused and waited on Him. In the waiting, He showed me a statue of a female with the name “Sophia” etched into the platform that she was standing on. As I researched it some, I found a photo of the statue that I saw. It was taken at an archaeological site in Ephesus (Turkey). It turns out, this statue of Sophia (wisdom) is from Gnosticism. They believed that she was comparable to the soul and also an emanation of Monad. Monad was one of the names for the “supreme being” of Gnosticism. Gnostics also believed that Sophia was the bride of Christ.

God to Sophia Valentina Buller (30 June 20): It is a new season 💝💝💝. While many are expecting the antichrist to show up and others expect chaos to strike, in Truth I AM Coming Back for MY Spotless and Holy Bride.  And as I draw near, people’s hearts are being EXPOSED in Jesus Name 🔥🔥🔥.  People cannot hide any longer behind empty words 🔥🔥🔥. MY Word Says the hearts of man ARE EXPOSED and NOTHING stays hidden 🔥🔥🔥. The opposition is a direct result of TRUTH being KNOWN in Jesus Name 🔥🔥🔥. People are no longer able to hide and that scares them 💖💖💖.

James W. Goll: I am personally convinced that all the hills and valleys I have passed through in the last 14 years have prepared me for the uncertainty of the times in which we’re living.

Anthony Medina (01 July 20): I said, “OK, Lord, I can ask for wisdom, but in the vision there were two wisdoms, and they certainly didn’t like each other.” I felt the need to look up the Greek word for wisdom, and found that it is “sophia.” It means “wisdom, insight, skill (human or divine), intelligence.”[5]

Brat: Now that poke at “Sophia” wisdom (Gnostic “wisdom”) could also be a poke at my friend, SOPHIA!

God to Sophia Valentina Buller (30 June 20): The Truth is hard for some to swallow MY darling Princess Sophia 💞💞💞

Brat: This poking continues to stonewall me and then gaslights my friend by association?  I am not imagining this.  Nor am I being over-sensitive.  These strategic provocations have been going on for too long for this to be random.  This was staged, especially since this is the second (or third?) time the Elijah List has posted this word by James Goll on anchoring.  We are two witnesses.  This has already been established.  If the fathers cared they wouldn’t be bullying witnesses.

Verse of the Day (2 July 20): Jeremiah 17:9-10

The heart is deceitful above all things
and beyond cure.
Who can understand it?

10 “I the Lord search the heart
and examine the mind,
to reward each person according to their conduct,
according to what their deeds deserve.”

God to Sophia Valentina Buller (27 June 20): You Have ENOUGH MY DARLING PRINCESS SOPHIA 😍😍😍. I AM Providing a home for you MY darling Princess Sophia 💖💖💖. You ARE working at home already 💗💗💗. Your home will NOT require you to work outside the home MY darling Princess Sophia 💞💞💞. You don’t need to get a job, you ARE already working as a mama and your children NEED you MY darling Princess Sophia 🥰🥰🥰. I Have Made a Way for you to stay home 💝💝💝.

Rick Joyner (30 June 20): Before the colonizing of America, there was hardly a place on earth where you could spend your life building a business, acquiring and developing property, and not be in jeopardy of having the sovereign decide they wanted it and just take it from you. The American Republic was the first place since the establishment of Israel in their Promised Land that the government was not only forbidden from doing this, but required to protect people’s property, which was seen as a divine mandate of government.[6]

Zechariah 9:10 He will cut off the chariot from Ephraim and the war horse from Jerusalem; and the battle bow shall be cut off, and he shall command peace to the nations; his dominion shall be from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.

When Light Came In (1 July 20): Revolutionary: to trust we’re less alone standing up for what we need, than surrounded by people who expect self abandonment…

Steve Shultz: In the midst of the shakings taking place in the nation(s), He is also bringing great justice in areas that need it right now.

Brat: Before the Jesuits became infatuated with their knowledge and their own voices, they used to love to engage one-on-one and make room for others to join in the conversation.  But now?  Now everything is turned into a mechanism for proselyting.  It’s no different than in the times of the Conquistadors.  And they’re no different than the Evangelicals who see the unsaved as “targets”.  We’re not saved by what we know.  Where is the compassion?  What really was your first love?  My friend, Sophia, actually cares.  She exemplifies the real bride of Christ!

Steve Shultz: I couldn’t agree more. Storms have come our way and will continue to do so. It’s important we know how to stand and prepare for the storms of life.

Anthony Medina (01 July 20): I then saw the corner crew of godly wisdom come and begin to work on those in the stands that were growing weak in their intercession. They were given fresh water, their wounds were cared for and words of life were spoken over them. As they were revived by the corner crew, the tone and momentum of the bout shifted in the favor of godly wisdom.

John Cabello: Neighbors and neighborhoods need Jesus, and we should seek to be a neighbor to everyone God puts in our path.

Brat: The world was supposed to know that we are Christians by our love.  Gaslighting, stonewalling, poking and provoking is not loving.  “Provoking one another into love” when one is trying to recover from wounds already inflicted at the house of my friends, (and then they’re trying to slander my other friends with it, too?) – well, NO!  This is not loving!

Hebrews 10: 24 and let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works,

Vicki Kemper: When times are hard, says the prophet Isaiah, when you’ve been held down so long you no longer believe in up, remember who and whose you are. Consider where you came from. Reflect on the grace that brought you this far. When you can’t find solid ground, hold tight to the One whose love never falters.

Rev. Dr. Joseph Pagano: It has also exposed truths about the church that are hard to face. The pressures on the church in late modern society have been a dull ache that we could ignore in better times. The pandemic has laid bare the ways we have been boxed in, squeezed out, and pushed around by late modern society.

Anthony Medina (01 July 20): Then the Lord said, “Tell them that what they are doing is causing the sickle to swing and not the scythe. Their intercession has turned the momentum of the bout and the sickle is beginning to swing and the white harvest will finally be brought into the storehouse of the Lord.”

Revelation 14:16 So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.

Zechariah 9:12 Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; today I declare that I will restore to you double.

God to Sophia Valentina Buller (27 June 20): I AM TEARING DOWN ALL STRONGHOLDS IN THE CHURCHES IN JESUS NAME 🔥🔥🔥

[8 pages of dialogue]

Anchored in Psalm 145:8-14 from the lectionary readings for 5 Pentecost 05 July 2020

*

Shira Schechter: If God told Balaam he could go with the messengers, why do you think he sends an angel to stop him on the way?

Patrick Weaver: Your calling is going to crush you.

Brat: Like in Numbers 22:25?

Tameea Ramsey: Sometimes we as humans feel the need to compare our Work to the next man’s! Comparison is the THEIF of joy

Brat (29 June 20): I don’t feel like comparison was the thief of my joy.  It was being stonewalled by the Church that made a prison-like atmosphere when I spoke up.  They didn’t care on one hand and then slapped me down with the other hand when the Truth was too strong.

Psalm 145:8 The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

Tameea Ramsey (29 June 20 on Facebook): Kathryn Hauser, Woman of GOD, I’m seeking GOD to show me the direction of which ye are called! Be encouraged for GOD has GREATNESS in stored for you ASK AND YE SHALL RECEIVE Is there a good time that I can video call you? It would have to be after 12pm Test my spirit by the spirit and GOD will show you who and whose I am For the glory of The LORD, you shall receive REVELATION today

#Love you & GOD BLESS

Brat (29 June 20): Tameea Ramsey, thank you for writing to me! Woo! Hoo!  How does one video call?  Can you walk me though it?

Rabbi Tuly Weisz (29 June 20): He wants our obedience even when it doesn’t make sense.

Brat (29 June 20): Somehow, I managed to get through this lockdown without doing video calls or Zoom or the like.  I don’t know how to do this.  But, on the blessing side, it offers me time to think on what I am observing.

Tameea Ramsey: Okay let me ask you what would you use your writing for while you’re in the world?

Do you write books, plays, poems…what brings you joy?

Brat (29 June 20): Ironically, I write for the Churches in the prayer of bringing reconciliation. The world doesn’t care.

I will send you my blog link: https://truthinus.wordpress.com/

Tameea Ramsey: I only ask that because a lot of times God can take can’t take the love of the things that we did in the world and turn them for his will! But, your already writing for the Church!

I’m going to open your blog

Psalm 145:9 The LORD is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made.

Tameea Ramsey: Wow, from what I read, you are a phenomenal writer!

Ryan Johnson (29 June 20): What if it is bigger than the individual call to unite? What if we are trying to unite, but without ever truly and sincerely yearning to ignite with the fire of the Holy Spirit? What if there is a call for the Body to IGNITE (in this season) that we have failed to adhere too? [1]

Patrick Weaver: Your calling will come with cups, thorns and sifting that are necessary for your mantle to be authentic, humble and powerful.

Fr. James Martin, SJ (28 June 20): We are all called to take up a cross.  We deal with it.  Not complain and pass along our misery to others.  Dying to self is letting go of selfish feelings.  We don’t just accept injustice.  We accept things in our own life we cannot change.  We don’t pass along anger.

Deacon Bill Parkinson: Love that: “ego NOT our amigo”

Tameea Ramsey: Never think that what your doing holds no value! Other’s COULDNT function without you!

Eli Laskey: “Some people can get lost in the context of their life; and, they allow that to be all they know! That can make it difficult to see where you’re going”

Tameea Ramsey: You truly can write books and more

Brat (29 June 20): I do have several books in the wings, and even have one self-published, after traditional publishers rejected my work repeatedly.  Then after I had self-published (but I only managed to sell one copy), God used that experience to show me that He would be using this as a tool for His kingdom.  He wanted to show His people how we are to work together, and that it is not all about self and self-promotion and self-direction. (I’d wished He’d told me that before the heartbreak, but He said I’d needed to go through it.)

Patrick Weaver: If you’re called to mend the brokenhearted, you’re going to wrestle with broken-heartedness.

Fr. James Martin, SJ (28 June 20): Is yours a cross for other people?

Brat: Oh well, even though there is a message button, it does not seem to work while he is live.  So, I didn’t share (yet).

Tameea Ramsey: How does the program flow properly without you?

Pastor Daniel Ortiz (29 June 20): They see deeper than what’s on the surface.

Brat prayer (28 June 20): Lord, I realize that these live videos are all the thing nowadays, but I don’t belong here.  I think deeply.  I listen intently.  I think slowly on what is trying to be conveyed, but also think quickly in how one word connects to another word.  I’m always listening for how You are connecting things for the greater message.  I don’t have a three-word nugget of wisdom to throw up on the screen to contribute to their conversations so the moderator can speed read it, like what the priest wanted yesterday as he streamed his live chat.

Hiram Vargas (29 June 20): Dysfunctional relationships have kept many from entering their prophetic destiny and purpose. In this season, we must birth relationships that come from the secret place and not from the desires of our souls. This is a crucial time for many in the Kingdom. We have been given a great opportunity to fortify our marriages, families, and relationships. All relationships should be a byproduct of our relationship with the Lord. [2]

Brat (28 June 20): What had I written to Francis Frangipane this morning?

“Lastly before releasing you to read the piece, I want to emphasize that prayer has been established.  True humility has been established. We have taken up our cross and followed Him.  Our lives have been patterned after the example of Jesus Christ.  We are a dwelling of God in the Spirit.  I am still saying that we need the spirit and the flesh to collide, just as heaven and earth must collide.  James talked about living our faith through sharing, not just saying, “Go in peace; stay warm and well-fed.”  I cannot continue just on spirit fumes while others reap the benefits off our backs to their own advantage, leaving the rest of us in the dust of their manipulation.”

Hiram Vargas (29 June 20): The Lord is bringing certain relationships closer together, but He is also setting some people free from relationships that are not bearing fruit. These are typically one-sided, dysfunctional relationships where one person does all the investing and reaching, and the other person makes little to no investment.

Brat: I have confirmation from a friend on this, cuz she went through it, too …

When Light Came In (29 June 20): That was safety birthing from what had felt hopeless. That was me caring for my inner child, taking a stand for her, owning that it is my responsibility to ask for and pursue safety in ways that I need, for as long as I need, until it is real.

Phyllis Ford (29 June 20): I can definitely say that Hiram has always released sound council and carries a word of God’s truth. From Kingdom gatherings to just sitting down in fellowship with other leaders, he prophetically speaks into the hearts of those whom he comes in contact with – to people from all walks of life.

Hiram Vargas (29 June 20): God is just and He cares about our relationships. It is not just for a person to sow and not reap. The Kingdom of God is based on the principle of sowing and reaping. In this season, the Lord is bringing family units together with a stronger bond than ever before. Marriages are being fortified and families are being knit together.

Ryan Johnson (29 June 20): The days ahead will continue to reveal those who give the Lord lip service and those whose hearts sincerely belong to the Lord. Yes, I strongly believe that currently there is a purging, a spiritual cleansing and judgment within the Body of Christ (1 Peter 4:17, “For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the Gospel of God?”).

Rabbi Tuly Weisz (29 June 20): There are three essentials that God provided the Children of Israel in the desert: Miriam’s well that traveled with them all the time (Brat: I thought a well was in the ground?  How can it travel?), Manna for food, and the cloud during the day and the pillar of fire at night.  We receive the Manna on account of Moses.  The cloud came through Aaron.  The water came about because of Miriam.

Pastor Daniel Ortiz (29 June 20): Now, in Exodus 15 Miriam is referred to as a prophetess, a seer.  We always hear of Moses and Aaron, but here she is seen as an important part of the leadership group.

Revelation 2:17 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it.

Rabbi Tuly Weisz (29 June 20): A prophet is not someone who predicts the future, but is someone who inspires the community to either embrace a certain future or reject the inevitability of possibly a bad future.

Ryan Johnson (29 June 20): Repentance will be the cry in the land as weeping fills our altars again. The fear of the Lord will return to the House of God.

Chuck Pierce: “I have a people who know how to walk. While light is still forming within them. Fear not that darkness that is crouching in. To remove your liberties. For this is a day that I have a people that will surprise the enemy.”

When Light Came In (29 June 20): The biggest win wasn’t the limit itself, but the fact that I was *ready to set it.* That it came to mind, that I listened, that I allowed myself the chance to choose and say “no more, no matter what response that brings.” That was the win.

Matthew 6:But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Tameea Ramsey: Another thing, focus on pleasing GOD; not the Church Everywhere you go people will take you for advantage GOD counts all that is done behind closed doors and more

Psalm 145:10 All your works shall give thanks to you, O LORD, and all your faithful shall bless you.

Brat (29 June 20): I would love to see if there were a way to incorporate this dialogue style into some professional niche.  I’m too old to “hit the pavement” (ie, to Hollywood), but if the five-fold ministry were working properly, then the apostles, ministers, and teachers would have connections were my gifts could be put to use.

Patrick Weaver: Your crushing won’t be easy because your assignment is not easy.  Your oil is not cheap.

Brat prayer: I still do not know the direction of which I am called.  I constantly struggle with spiritual fathers and mothers not writing me back directly to keep the conversation going, but each day the hijack is perpetuated by more Arc Speak to my private prayer time.

Tameea Ramsey: Some people are called to do one thing! But, when they bring their portion to the table, it edifies they body of Christ!

Brat: …But I will take what I hear and process it.  After praying through it, I’ll share what I can after trying to see where the Holy Spirit is leading.  I have never found a safe place for processing, even though Jesus told us to go into our closet, shut the door and pray.

When Light Came In (29 June 20): After all we’ve survived, safety is ours alone to define.

Ryan Johnson (29 June 20): I am for the Body of Christ to unite. I do not want to come across as if I am against the idea or the call to unite. What I am proposing is whether there could be a reality that we are wrong (in this current season) to be crying out “only” for unity. The fact is, not everyone who professes to be in the Body of Christ will actually unite. We have fought for generations within the Body of Christ to unite and come together for a greater purpose. Yet, in generation after generation it appears that the ability to unite within the Body has been next to impossible. Denominations, eschatology, independent churches/organizations, and more, make this very evident!

Brat: My desire is that people would write me back, even if there is agreement or disagreement.  Even if the person came back to say, “I donno…”, or “That’s beyond me…”, or “The ordinance prohibits me from …”, or “My boss has my hands tied…”, or “I’ll check it out and get back to you…”, or “I’ll take it up with God in prayer…”, or… SOMETHING!  But all I usually get is one word (like gorilla grunts) or SILENCE.  Then I’m left with struggling with self-doubts and diving deeper into the Spirit to hear what He’s saying.  The extra strain also opens the door for hearing what the lesser (familiar) spirits could also be saying, because the Truth was never expressed on the surface.  Thoughts, words, and deeds are truncated before any honesty has a chance to be forthcoming. Transparency is given more lip service.  Without integrity, it opens the door to visualizing, supposing, and manifesting our will rather than God’s perfect will.  When there is the five-fold hub to rely on, then God’s yoke is easy and His burden is light.  When SILENCE blocks that connection, then … well, ya’know…

Test the spirits…

Patrick Weaver: If you are called to empower, your self-esteem will be attacked, your successes will be hard fought.

When Light Came In (29 June 20): Safe, for me, is being respected. It is being heard, even if not understood. It is autonomy and freedom of my body, thoughts, faith and ideas. It is space to process emotion without judgment. It is freedom from harassment, belittling, manipulation and threats. It is the ability to choose without being coerced or punished.

Hiram Vargas (29 June 20): I saw a father beginning to lead his family into the presence of God, and his children were on their faces worshiping the Lord. I believe that fathers are the key holders and gatekeepers of families. As the fathers take their place at the gates, we will see a revolution taking place in the family units from the poorest to the richest. I believe some of the greatest leaders we will see in the Church in the days to come will be broken fathers, and those coming from broken families that the Lord breathed upon. This will cause one of the greatest grassroot moves of God in America from coast to coast.

Psalm 145:11 They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, and tell of Your power,

Brat: And now the rabbis are in the season of Balak again? AGAIN?? WTF?

Patrick Weaver: If you’re called to prophesy, you’re going to struggle to control your mouth.

Hiram Vargas (29 June 20): Fathers, Take Your Place at the Gates!

Ryan Johnson (29 June 20): I believe that this dream speaks a reality that everyone will not be willing, yet there will be those who will embrace the fire of God (like a Blacksmith who is willing to put you back into the fire), willing to be those who ignite. They will ignite the Kingdom within (through Jesus). The Lord will clean house, as the false is being revealed and the trash is being taken out. Let us rally…IGNITE, IGNITE, IGNITE!

Revelation 2:12 “To the angel of the church in Pergamum write:

These are the words of him who has the sharp, double-edged sword.

Patrick Weaver: If you’re called to lay hands, you will battle spiritual viruses.

Pastor Daniel Ortiz (29 June 20): I’m not trying to rationalize God.  I’m just like the leaf in the water and wherever You want me to go, whatever You want me to do, I’ll do it.

Brat: I’m trying to figure out where I hung up my harp by the river.

Jordan Feliz: “The River” [https://youtu.be/maT4phfTXR4]

Tameea Ramsey: I feel that your going to embark on a journey!

When Light Came In (29 June 20): Today I did something gutsy that created safety where others I respect had not felt it was ok or even possible. I set a limit that is going to piss off some people… definitely my ex. But it was time, even if it makes waves. I put it out there, and I will not back down.

Rabbi YY Jacobson: Moshiach’s Donkey: A Drama in Four Acts; A Tale of 4 Donkeys: The One of Bilam, Avraham, Moshe & Moshiach [https://www.theyeshiva.net/jewish/2494]

Ryan Johnson (29 June 20): Did you catch it? Let me share a different translation with you for your consideration. Matthew 3:11-12 (MSG): “I’m baptizing you here in the river, turning your old life in for a Kingdom life. The real action comes next: The main character in this drama—compared to Him I’m a mere stagehand—will ignite the Kingdom life within you, a fire within you, the Holy Spirit within you, changing you from the inside out. He’s going to clean house—make a clean sweep of your lives. He’ll place everything true in its proper place before God; everything false He’ll put out with the trash to be burned.”

Hiram Vargas (29 June 20): There is a big difference between acquaintance, friendship, and relationship. We all have had people in our lives at these different levels. In this season, many are discovering how meaningful or how shallow certain relationships have been. There are certain relationships, specifically with our spouses, children and loved ones that have grown distant over time. Some relationships have not been fruitful, meaning they are not reciprocal. One person does all the reaching, interaction and investing while the other person does not.

Matthew 6:Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Hiram Vargas (29 June 20): Before Ezekiel was commanded to prophesy to the dry bones, it says that the hand of the Lord was upon him (Ezekiel 37:1). It was only because of this that he could prophesy the word of life into the dry bones. In this next season, the Lord is requiring intimacy, for His hand to be upon us and to prophesy life. I keep hearing this in my spirit: Before we can prophesy to our relationships – from dry bones to a living organism – we must FIRST have intimacy with the Life Giver. Those that bypass this process will continue to foster dysfunctional relationships.

Revelation 2:14 Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: There are some among you who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin so that they ate food sacrificed to idols and committed sexual immorality.

Ryan Johnson (29 June 20): What Does This Mean for Us?

Brat: This was the dynamic: Balaam blessed and did not curse.  He taught that to Balak.  I’m not saying that cursing is right.  I’m trying to highlight the one-sidedness created by the manipulation from Balak’s agenda.  And Balaam got fat off of all the sacrifices, just the same way as in a dysfunctional relationship, where one is always giving and the other is always taking.  If blessings are the “food” (ie, Manna, spiritual insight, revelation,) and the spiritual food is sacrificed to the idol of SILENCE because the recipients get off (sexual immorality) on feeding their own agendas, then it destroys any relationship.  There is no room for discussion or growth, because there is no safe place to address it.  That goes for the methods of communication, too.  I don’t have a quick word to contribute to online discussions.

Psalm 145:12 to make known to all people Your mighty deeds, and the glorious splendor of Your kingdom.

When Light Came In (29 June 20): Nobody gets to tell you what safe is, what it looks like. It is yours alone. This is a big part of the healing: letting your needs be valid, ok, worthy of space in the world. Pursuing safety on your own terms until you feel it in the deepest part of you.

Matthew 6:And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.

Brat (29 June 20): That experience [of self-publishing my book] was before I started writing dialogue.  The written-out conversations grew out of the dysfunctional SILENCE that developed as I was listening to what the Spirit was saying to the Churches.  The Churches were so busy babbling that they couldn’t hear each other let alone the Holy Spirit.

Tameea Ramsey: See what GOD says!

Hiram Vargas (29 June 20): I believe that in this season the Lord is beginning to put the spotlight on our friendships and relationships.

Psalm 145:13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. The LORD is faithful in all his words, and gracious in all his deeds.

Tameea Ramsey: Don’t ever feel that what you are doing isn’t enough!

Patrick Weaver: If you are called to preach and to teach the gospel, you will be sifted for the wisdom that anoints your message.

Brat: For the record, I had ended “Bold” (27 June 20) confirming that Israel had already been doing what God commanded, but since we don’t talk about it, I have no way of knowing if they really heard:

… Helen Calder (04 January 2011): Today I pray with you, that you experience a powerful visitation of God upon your life, your family, work, region and ministry. A Divine visitation that will cause a chain reaction to take place, so that as happened in the time of Naomi, people who have never know God will turn to Him, and generations to come will be impacted by the move of God.

Rabbi Shaul Leiter (25 June 20): Even how to bring the final redemption is hinted at in the Red Heifer! The Talmud (Yoma 67b) teaches on the verse from the beginning of the portion, “This is the law (chukat) of the Torah.” G-d says, “A law I have engraved, a decree I decreed, and you have no permission to question it.” (Rashi). This means that, not only do I fulfil a commandment even when I do not understand it. I will do it without even questioning, because it is so patently clear to me that one has to keep every commandment simply because it is a commandment of the King and I must fulfil it because of my allegiance to the King. I take on the yoke of Heaven, even if I do not understand what I am doing.

Brat: Isn’t that what you’ve already done?

Marilyn Hickey (27 June 20): The Blood of Jesus has purchased your freedom from iniquity, and the witness of the Holy Spirit applies the anointing that breaks the yoke—freeing you of the shackles of your family iniquities:

Psalm 89:18 For our shield belongs to the LORD, our king to the Holy One of Israel.

Ryan Johnson (29 June 20): I originally thought the cheer was “UNITE,” which is what we often hear from the Body of Christ…but the dream brought forth with clarity that it was “IGNITE.”

Rabbi Tuly Weisz (29 June 20): The process itself doesn’t make sense but it is one of those laws that the children of Israel do.

When Light Came In (29 June 20): There are guidelines, but ultimately it’s about what we can handle without trauma or re-traumatization. Safety changes over time, fluctuates with our healing process and circumstances.

Psalm 145:14 The LORD upholds all who are falling, and raises up all who are bowed down.

Hiram Vargas (29 June 20): Let’s allow the Lord to define our relationships in this new era. Some relationships will blossom and flourish; other ones will be adjusted to a different level of importance, and still others will be pruned from our lives simply because they are not fruitful. We will also begin to be restored from past relationships that have gone through this cycle; the Lord is reigniting, redeeming and restoring what has been lost. Either way, let’s give God room to breathe upon all our relationships.

Anchored in Psalm 89:1-4, 15-18 from the lectionary readings for 4 Pentecost 28 June 2020

Psalm 89:1 I will sing of your steadfast love, O LORD, forever; with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations.

Message from Pete Garza on Facebook (26 June 20): Kathryn, you are a blessing to the body and God will use you to share his message. Don’t be discouraged or frustrated just allow God to show you your portion this season. He will bring the increase and you will see his favor on it. I actually just released a word on the wine of His increase

The Elijah List: IN THE SAME WAY, GOD TAKES CARE OF YOU and me, often inspiring others to offer you a sudden gift just when you’ve needed it.

Brat prayer shared with Pete Garza on Facebook and with the Elijah List (26 June 20): Holy God, I ask You to show me how I am a blessing to the body.  Someone told me this week, “You are a very powerful writer.”  How does this connect to Your body?  I ask You for wisdom in how to share Your message.  We are encouraged to hold up our cup and to receive of You.  We did drink from the cup that You drank from, just as You said that we would. (Mt 20:23).  I’ve been told, “I do hope you find encouragement in your work and advocacy.”  Where?  Please show me my portion this season.  I don’t just write for myself.  Show me where I belong.  Joy and justice are intertwined?  I don’t see Eli and Sons [1 Samuel] being held accountable.  Heaven and earth should collide.  The blessings can’t just be spiritual all of the time.  I get no compensation.  I understand that justice may not look like what I expect.  The violent have already stormed heaven by force.  Make things right.  I ask for eyes to see the increase and to steward Your favor with wisdom.  I’m listening, Lord Jesus.

Acts 4:13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took note concerning them that they had been with Jesus.

Helen Calder (26 June 20): You Sense God Calling You into a New Conversation[1]

Kathie Walters (27 June 20): When people have something to share from God, it is just as important as the “big” prophet or apostle. When it is disregarded or dismissed, it makes people feel inadequate and unimportant. It brings a dumb spirit so that when they do say something, it falls to the ground.[2]

Helen Calder (29 January 2010): Some weaknesses of this journaling method are: It does not use the Bible in the journaling process[3]

Brat: See for yourself … https://truthinus.wordpress.com/

Psalm 89:2 I declare that your steadfast love is established forever; your faithfulness is as firm as the heavens.

Sophia shared Eli Laskey (26 June 20): Watch “They Won’t Be Able To Deny It!” on YouTube [https://youtu.be/I1gecOQz6Zw]

Psalm 89:3 You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to my servant David:

Helen Calder (05 Dec 2019): You may have entered a Divine appointment, knowing it is one. But often, a Divine appointment is unexpected! It is only during or afterwards, that you become aware of its significance.[4]

Brat (echo): Holy God, I ask You to show me how I am a blessing to the body.

Lana Vawser (26 June 20): As I was pondering this before the Lord, I heard the Lord speaking over many in the body of Christ that are facing this ‘testing of their promise’ again.[5]

Helen Calder (04 January 2011): If God asks us to do something specific, an act of obedience can bring a powerful breakthrough.

Brat (echo): Someone told me this week, “You are a very powerful writer.”

Helen Calder (26 June 20): The Power of a Visitation from God

Brat (echo): How does this connect to Your body?

Darren Canning: There is a new meekness rising in the body of Christ. No longer will they run when the battle grows hard. Churches will grow and the believers will become mature. They will not run when offence rises, but they will walk the way of love.

Brat (echo): I ask You for wisdom in how to share Your message.

Helen Calder (26 June 20): During times of transition, God is operating in His wisdom, in ways we don’t understand. Jesus was hidden in plain sight, but He had a purpose.

Brat (echo): We are encouraged to hold up our cup and to receive of You.

Marilyn Hickey (27 June 20): “In the same way, after the supper He took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My Blood, which is poured out for you.'” (Luke 22:20)[6]

Psalm 89:4 ‘I will establish your descendants forever, and build your throne for all generations.'” Selah

Brat (echo): We did drink from the cup that You drank from, just as You said that we would. (Mt 20:23).

Alane Haynes: Recently, Holy Spirit reminded me that there were some things we did during this time of turmoil that are vital. He led me to Genesis 26 and showed me these keys through the account of Isaac receiving favor and blessing during a time of famine.

Helen Calder (04 January 2011): Sometimes, however, it is not about doing anything except simply receiving—equally an act of obedience.

Lana Vawser (26 June 20): I felt the heart of the Lord strongly for those that are struggling with yet another testing of their promise and the word of the Lord in their life, to not look at this as a ‘setback’. Lift up your eyes up and look into the eyes of Jesus, for you are positioned for a miracle. The Lord has not changed His Word to you. In fact I hear the Lord saying that many are on the door of their miracle. Posture your heart to receive.

Brat (echo): I’ve been told, “I do hope you find encouragement in your work and advocacy.”  Where?

Kathie Walters (27 June 20): My friend, who was part of a leadership group, once told me that she sat in meetings and would offer suggestions, but she felt that when she said anything no one heard her. Later in these same meetings, someone else would say the same thing and everyone would be excited!

Psalm 89:15 Happy are the people who know the festal shout, who walk, O LORD, in the light of your countenance;

Anna Blake (26 June 20): Rhythm is defined as a strong, regular, repeated pattern of movement or sound.

Marilyn Hickey (27 June 20): The roots of iniquity are pulled up through the Blood of Jesus. Isaiah 53 says that Jesus bore our sin; He was wounded for our trespasses and bruised for our iniquities. The Blood of Jesus is all sufficient, powerful, and devastating to family iniquities in your bloodline. To be effective, however, the Blood of Jesus must be applied to your situation. Positive thinking, psychological counseling—even doing “religious” things like singing in the choir—while good, will not solve the problem.

Darren Canning: I see many Christians with open wounds on their arms and legs; and they are licking them. I see the Lord coming applying the balm to the wounds. Hearts are about to be healed. Those that have been living by their own plans will finally realize that they cannot succeed outside of Christ. They will die to their own way and rise mighty in the Lord.

The Elijah List: Remember how it was Judas who was “trusted” with the money bag. What this shows us is that Jesus put a person in charge of ministry finances – to receive, and account for the donations of money that people gave to His ministry.

Marilyn Hickey (27 June 20): Jesus took on Himself the curse of your iniquity. He became cursed that you could be set free and blessed: “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.” (Galatians 3:13)

Brat (echo): Joy and justice are intertwined?

Darren Canning: Mightiness only comes through meekness. It is up to the Lord to use you as his mighty weapon. I declare that you will have the courage to wait upon the Lord. As you do, you will rise on the wings of eagles to declare God’s voice, like the prophets of old. You will be like the trumpet that blows in the city, and the people will begin to fear their God.

Kathie Walters (27 June 20): In my spirit, I heard a man’s voice say, “Thank you. Write it down; we’ll look at it later.” This word gave such clarity. It’s what people, oppressed by this dumb spirit, need to hear. While in my vision, it was as though I were in a church meeting, witnessing a lady going to one of the pastors saying she had a word from the Lord. The appropriate response from the leadership was what I heard in my spirit – “Thank you. Write it down; we’ll look at it later.”

Psalm 89:16 they exult in your name all day long, and extol your righteousness.

Brat (echo): Please show me my portion this season.

Kathie Walters (27 June 20): A lot of people have told me the same thing. What they have to say is good – it is sometimes a word from the Lord, but it just falls to the ground.

Brat (echo): I don’t just write for myself.  Show me where I belong.

Kathie Walters (27 June 20): Having a dumb spirit doesn’t mean you can’t speak – it just means that when you do speak, no one listens or pays attention.

Brat (echo): I don’t see Eli and Sons [1 Samuel] being held accountable.

Marilyn Hickey (27 June 20): The Jewish ceremony of the Day of Atonement gives us a picture of redemption. Through this ceremony you can see how Jesus purchased your freedom from iniquities. When this ceremony was reenacted in Heaven on your behalf, Jesus became your High Priest and blood sacrifice.

Brat (echo): Heaven and earth should collide.

Helen Calder (05 Dec 2019): A Divine Appointment Turns Your Distress to Worship

Brat (echo): The blessings can’t just be spiritual all of the time.

Helen Calder (04 January 2011): Goliath was killed by the word of the Lord AND by a stone from David’s sling (1 Samuel 17). God provided food for a widow and her son, but first, she had to give away the last of what she had to Elijah (1 Kings 17:7-16).

Brat: Like I did to the Elijah List?

Martha Spong (27 June 20): I am like my loaves of bread. The things I incorporate, the spiritual influences and personal contacts and media sources, have the power to leaven me, to transform me.

Lance Wallnau (26 June 20): We are literally walking through things predicted thousands of years ago. They are taking place right in front of our eyes. Nations are being shaken. The entire spirit realm is convulsing, and it is all building to a moment of American decision––a literal contest of worldviews. The stage may very well be setting up for an Elijah confrontation with the false Prophets in the media. That, my friends, is the new sacred, and the reason we should stand up and not bend the knee to Baal.

Brat (echo): I get no compensation.

Steve Shultz (27 June 20): Bottom line: If you have generational curses to uproot in your family line, you’ll want to get right to reading this word by Marilyn Hickey…and you can take her wisdom here to the bank!

Brat (echo): I understand that justice may not look like what I expect.

Helen Calder (04 January 2011): Divine visitation should not be considered an exception; instead, it can be your expectation.[7]

Anna Blake (26 June 20): Part one is noticing yourself.

Psalm 89:17 For you are the glory of their strength; by your favor our horn is exalted.

Lana Vawser (26 June 20): This is not only a time where the Lord is going to fulfill His promise to you, not only is He going to fulfill that which He has spoken, there is a wholeness, a freedom, healing and breaking of the chains of many, many years of disappointment.

Brat (echo): The violent have already stormed heaven by force.

Kathie Walters (27 June 20): God wants everyone to speak up, but the enemy wants to shut you down. That’s because your words have power – but the dumb spirit snatches away the anointing, so that your words aren’t effective. I have seen the word of the Lord come through a child that changed the whole course of a conference…or someone’s life.

Brat (echo): Make things right.

Anna Blake (26 June 20): How do we improve our skills to better support our horses? We look for deeper meaning in the things we take for granted. We take something we know and re-discover it. We gain more understanding and focus not by mental effort, but rather releasing thoughts and finding the feeling of it. We can’t understand horses by reading a book any more than we can learn to swim by standing at the edge of a pool.[8]

Stephanie Claiborne (26 June 20): When Jesus was crucified on the Cross, justice was released. This did not look like what people (the Jews) expected. The people of His time were looking for the oppressor to be dealt with so that they, the people, could live in peace. BUT JESUS brought a higher way! He brought righteousness, peace, joy, and LOVE.”[9]

Rabbi Shaul Leiter (25 June 20): According to this understanding, the burning of the Red Heifer today is the burning and nullification of the exile, of everything that separates me from the Divine. When all of us observe the commandments, even those that we know the reasons for, as if they are a chok (a law that has no understandable reason): When absolutely nothing holds us back from taking on the yoke of Heaven, the Kingship of G-d: When even on an intellectual level we have no doubts or negative thoughts – this is what will be the preparation for opening the gates – bringing the final redemption. When Mashiach comes there will be no place empty of the revelation of the Shechinah. And the prophesy, “The earth will be filled with knowledge of G-d, like the water fills the sea” (Yeshaya/Isaiah 11:9), will finally be true.

Lana Vawser (26 June 20): Allow the Lord to fulfill His promise to you in His way and in His timing. Create the space for the new thing to grow through your faith and surrender/yielding to His timing. For the faithfulness of the Lord is going to be demonstrated to you in profound ways (Lamentations 3:22).

Helen Calder (04 January 2011): There are times to contend, and there are also times to just open our hands and say, ‘Thank you Lord.’

Marilyn Hickey (27 June 20): “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” (Isaiah 10:27)

Brat (echo): I ask for eyes to see the increase and to steward Your favor with wisdom.

Helen Calder (05 Dec 2019): At the Divine Appointment, Your Fear Meets God’s Favor

Brat (echo): I’m listening, Lord Jesus.

Pete Garza (24 June 20): New Wine speaks of the Harvest, and you best believe It’s harvest time!

Helen Calder (04 January 2011): Today I pray with you, that you experience a powerful visitation of God upon your life, your family, work, region and ministry. A Divine visitation that will cause a chain reaction to take place, so that as happened in the time of Naomi, people who have never know God will turn to Him, and generations to come will be impacted by the move of God.

Rabbi Shaul Leiter (25 June 20): Even how to bring the final redemption is hinted at in the Red Heifer! The Talmud (Yoma 67b) teaches on the verse from the beginning of the portion, “This is the law (chukat) of the Torah.” G-d says, “A law I have engraved, a decree I decreed, and you have no permission to question it.” (Rashi). This means that, not only do I fulfil a commandment even when I do not understand it. I will do it without even questioning, because it is so patently clear to me that one has to keep every commandment simply because it is a commandment of the King and I must fulfil it because of my allegiance to the King. I take on the yoke of Heaven, even if I do not understand what I am doing.

Brat: Isn’t that what you’ve already done?

Marilyn Hickey (27 June 20): The Blood of Jesus has purchased your freedom from iniquity, and the witness of the Holy Spirit applies the anointing that breaks the yoke—freeing you of the shackles of your family iniquities:

Psalm 89:18 For our shield belongs to the LORD, our king to the Holy One of Israel.

Anchored in Psalm 13 from the lectionary readings for 4 Pentecost 28 June 2020

[8 pages of dialogue]

[Bang goes the hammer on the golden spike.]

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): Do Not Get in My Way![1]

When Light Came In (23 June 20): “Why did you stay?” If you’re asking yourself, or are tempted to ask another… please read.

Brat (in “Train Tracks” to Pete Garza on 16 June 20): “A picture comes to mind of connecting two lines of railroads.  The apostolic covering over the cave dweller says to the individual that their gift is necessary on the rail tracks and applied in a specific place and time, just as two disparate rail lines are connected to make one (like “the Golden Spike” in California).  That acknowledgment is what Jezebel stole.  If we just go back by the same way we came without acknowledging the individual gift to benefit the greater whole, then we just repeat the cycle and there is no honor.

Rachel Hackenberg (24 June 20): Trying to get out from under the thumb of the Babylonians? Zedekiah’s solution is to call the Egyptians and Jeremiah and every prophet he knows for protection.

Psalm 13:1 How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?

When Light Came In (23 June 20): “Practical reasons like lack of affordable housing, not knowing where your children will end up, not having enough money to leave, or feeling like you won’t have support are all valid reasons why we stay with people who abuse us.

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “There’s a sound in the distance. I Am calling My people, calling you into a place that you’ve not been before. I Am calling you in to stand in ways you haven’t stood. Watch when smoke comes up. When the smoke comes up (these are signals), rally toward the fire.

[Bang goes the hammer on the golden spike.]

Nate and Christy Johnston (22 June 20): Lets be real for a minute…do you often feel hopeless and defeated? Are you a feeler, a seer, or just someone [who] senses everything and doesn’t know how to separate it from you and the world around you? We understand…In fact one of the most common questions we get is “How do I rise above what I am sensing? I feel bombarded and taken out all the time yet I know I am meant to be a voice to speak into the things I am seeing and sensing”.

Psalm 13:2 How long must I bear pain in my soul, and have sorrow in my heart all day long? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?

Rachel Hackenberg (24 June 20): Frightened again by Babylonian advances? Zedekiah secretly approves Jeremiah’s release in hopes that God will do the same for Jerusalem.

[Bang goes the hammer on the golden spike.]

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “The Kingdom suffers violence but the violent take it by force. There is a violence coming back to fathers (and mothers) to father (and mother) the land again. There is violence in the atmosphere, but I have a more violent people that are willing to fight. The violence is here today! We will not lose! I Am pushing right behind you…the violent take it by force!

Christie Roe Pride (24 June 20): He has called you a mighty weapon of war that will NOT back down when the fires get hot. You know this is true about yourself, yet you ask Him – “where is the war, Lord? Where is the fire?” You long to be battling the big dogs for Him. He’s calling you to remain steady on your feet. There are more battles happening in the “standing” than you even know. You are fierce and mighty and the weapons of your warfare are not carnal but super natural. As you stand in the gap for the many whom you’re contending on behalf of, the Lord is sent in power to restore and tear down as needed. Your prayers are like silver bullets to the enemy’s camp and he is mighty afraid of your worship.

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “I Am a good Father, and because I Am a good Father, I know when to war with the enemy. I know when for My people – to rise up and represent Me in the war ahead. Judah goes first, and Judah must arise throughout the land with a sound, a new sound of war!

Steve Shultz: Yes, it feels like the Church has been in a cave this last season…but it really is time to arise and be a part of the reformation He is calling us to.

Pete Garza: In 1 Kings 19:15-17 we see God’s divine order using Elijah to anoint the kings to be. Just like Elijah, God will also use the Bride to usher in a mighty harvest. The Lord will use the Bride to bring change and reformation to a nation who is desperately crying for restoration.[2]

Steve Shultz: Many of you need this very word at this very moment. Pete Garza writes a word just for you that will require “action” on your part …

Brat (23 June 20): I DID share my blog with you [https://truthinus.wordpress.com/].

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): A New Communication Network

Rachel Hackenberg (24 June 20): King Zedekiah is a politician of convenience, a man who avoids conflict when possible and – when it’s not possible – casts his net wide in hopes of a bailout from any possible source.

[Bang goes the hammer on the golden spike.]

Steve Shultz: Prophetic words that come like this from the Lord are MEANT to CAUSE YOU TO SEARCH out the meaning. Even with searching it out, you may not know what it means until suddenly you are presented with the obvious choice; and when that happens, then, as the prophetic word says, you must “Press, press, and press toward the fire.”

Stephanie Bennett-Henry: I hope you never bend your spine into a bridge for someone else to walk across, just before they burn it.  Know your worth.  Know it hard.  It does not bend.  It does not burn.

When Light Came In (23 June 20): We survived on flexibility and accommodation. Let’s get rigid as we heal.

Bill Yount: Joseph was Daddy’s favorite from the start, and it got him into trouble. I now know what got him through his experience in the pit, the prison, and into the palace. He not only knew God was with him, but he knew a family secret…”My daddy loves me!” When you inherit a father’s love for you, it gets way down inside of your bones and marrow. In Genesis 50:25, Joseph told his family, “When you come up out of Egypt, take my bones with you.” There was still something precious in the bones of Joseph. Guess what it was?…”My Daddy loves me!”

[Bang goes the hammer on the golden spike.]

Simcha-Shmuel Treister: Water from the Well

Brat (in “After These Things” 22 June 20): We’ve already talked about my writings and dialogues from the lectionary readings [“wellspring”] getting hijacked and the Church not coming to provide sanctuary.

When Light Came In (23 June 20): Institutional reasons are one powerful reason why we stay. Oppression, disbelief by those in power like law enforcement, or our culture don’t help either. Society also paints a picture of what relationships “should look like,” which often perpetuates abusive and toxic portrayals.

Rev. Phil (in “After These Things” 22 June 20): For so much of our nation’s history, to be part of the church has been a designation of institutional membership, a cultural practice encoded in spiritual language handed down from generation to generation; an elegant packaging of some laudable core values, and a safe, enclosed space in which to work out the meaning of life according to those values. In this understanding of church as institution, which patterns itself according to the societal contexts in which it operates—the world outside the walls—there are usually a number of factions, organized along political, liturgical, or ideological spectrums, and whoever dominates in numbers or funding tends to dictate what we stand for and the ways in which we do so. It’s not that we ignore the gospel in this mode of church; it’s simply that the “good news” we share often sounds like the good news we want to hear, or more specifically, the good news that the powerful want to hear.

When Light Came In (20 June 20): I heard this at church a lot, especially as I tried to get free.

Simcha-Shmuel Treister: The verse goes on to say, “Gather the people together, and I will give them water,” because the well of Miriam dried up when she died, and it returned in the merit of Moses. If you ask how 600,000 people draw water from that well, then you should know that there were 12 streams and the water gushed forth from the well and filled these streams that then flowed to all sides. Then, when the Israelites camped and wanted water, they would stand on the side of the stream bed and sing a song, “Spring up, O well…” (Num. 21:17) – “Raise up source of waters, so there will be enough water for all Israel and for the herds”. Thus they would sing praises to that higher well [malchut]. “The Princes dug the well, the nobles of the people excavated it with their scepter and their staves.” (Num. 21:18) They would say words of truth, and thus it would happen.

Rachel Hackenberg (24 June 20): The officials said to the king, “Jeremiah ought to be put to death, because he is discouraging the people who are left in this city.” King Zedekiah said, “Here he is – I won’t stop you.” So they took Jeremiah and threw him into the cistern. – Jeremiah 38:4-6 (adapted)

Psalm 13:3 Consider and answer me, O LORD my God! Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death,

Brat (23 June 20): There is a message in this action to not grieve the Holy Spirit.

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “I Am creating surprise storms. Watch, storms of surprise will sweep through the land, and as I surprise you, the storms will settle the dust of the enemy around you. I will not have a dry people, but I will have a people who know how to dance in the midst of the rain. I will have a people who know how to communicate through the airways. I will have a people who know how to rise and decree that I will triumph!

Rachel Hackenberg (24 June 20): Prayer
We have taken the blessed dust of which you made us, and the holy rain of which you made the earth, and we have made a muddy mess. Forgive us, not for the sake of expediency, but for the sake of your name.

[Bang goes the hammer on the golden spike.]

Pete Garza: Cave Dwellers, it’s time! The Church is rising and God is preparing the Bride to be used in a way that will bring reformation to our nation. Revival is here!

Brat (23 June 20): I had shared, taken the risk, and even told you that a friend request is not taken for granted, and I never heard back from you.

Pete Garza in FB message (23 June 20 at 12:16 pm): I’m not sure what you mean by I have not gotten back to you? I did accept and we have spoken. I’m not sure what your requesting from me?

Brat (23 June 20): What I am requesting of you is to write me back.  You never responded to “Train Tracks.”  The prophets keep telling us to take action as if writing is not an action.  But others write senators and congressmen.  That’s taking action.  And it gets the same results.  Nada.  But we’re told to do it anyway.  I have my calling and I’m told to do it anyway.

Rachel Hackenberg (24 June 20): How stuck are we by our own allegiances?

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “The storm is just for a moment, but the plunder of the storm is for a lifetime. Look and see how you quivered and shook in the middle of the storm. Now is the time to throw off the fear and dig deeper. I Am establishing a House, and the House that I Am establishing will be that of Joseph that you can receive, hear, and get the treasures of the ancient hills. The storm is only designed to break up the fallow ground so the treasures can come forth and be secured in your house. Open up the doors and receive the plunder.

Bill Yount: Joseph Knew A Family Secret

Rachel Hackenberg (24 June 20): “By any means necessary” is Zedekiah’s slogan, even if it means throwing someone under the bus, out on the street, or into the cistern’s mud. Temporary peace, by any means necessary. Silencing critics, by any means necessary. Saving face, by any means necessary. And when all else fails: lie that you never said such a thing, send the women and children out to seek peace, or run away and hide.

Pete Garza: Saints, we see in verse 15 [of 1 Kings 19:15-17] how the Lord told Elijah to go back the same way he came. This passage is significant because as we emerge from our caves, the Lord is also calling us to go back. We must go back the same way we came to defeat the enemy and redeem the land that that was illegally occupied by the enemy.

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “I have sounds waiting on you. I have things that will free your spirit and deliver you supernaturally. I have new missions that you would say, ‘Lord, this could be awful!’ but I Am sending you in to win! So, rise up! For as you blow up the enemy’s plan, you will hear the sound of victory that will enter the earth.

Brat (in “Train Tracks” to Pete Garza on 16 June 20): I’ve exposed what I could in my blog [https://truthinus.wordpress.com/] but the Churches are experts in suppressing it, stonewalling it, or gaslighting it (all of Jezebel’s tactics, and all done in the name of “divine exploits”). However, that only proves to me that what I’m saying must be working in Spirit and in Truth somehow, but there is never any closure.  It’s all a chess game to the Great They.  I need a Giant killer positioned beside me and my friends.

Rachel Hackenberg (24 June 20): Of Zedekiah’s foolish game, Jeremiah prophesies, “The women and children will say of you: ‘Your allegiances have betrayed you, and your feet are stuck in the mud.’”

[Bang goes the hammer on the golden spike.]

Helen Calder (8 August 2010): This ability can result in us feeling different, lonely or misunderstood at times, especially when starting out. It is vital that someone with a developing gift of discernment finds a safe place to journey with others who are similarly gifted and accountable in the life of their church.

Steve Shultz: Pray into this word and try to pick up on other codes within it. Then watch and prepare for something.

Rachel Hackenberg (24 June 20): Stay at the top by any means necessary. It’s a strategy of power that has been taught through the generations: pledge allegiance to many gods (wealth, nation, race, religion, war) to guard what you believe to be yours.

Brat (23 June 20): Honestly, I keep sharing and I get worn out by people reading what I share and then using it to undermine me rather than include me.  For thirteen years pastors and prophets have taken what I’ve written and preached their sermons to it but never come back to acknowledge the gift, but instead just use it and abuse it.

Christie Roe Pride (24 June 20): The Lord is asking that you submit to the process of honing and polishing as He removes the debris from the many fallouts you’ve had that have hurt your very tender heart.

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “For I know when to stand a gift next to another gift. I know when to stand a gift that’s coming through one blood next to another gift, and then next to another gift. I don’t see race the way you see race – I see blood. I created one blood, and I know when to activate the gifts in My Blood and align them in a holy array for triumph.

Bill Yount: I sense many reading this have been raised with an earthly father who loved you, but somehow failed to communicate his love and affirmation to you. You have grown up, but there is still an unanswered cry coming up out of you… “Daddy, where are you?”

[Bang goes the hammer on the golden spike.]

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “Lines are forming, so be careful how you draw a line in the sand this hour. There are many lines that are changing. Therefore, watch before you draw. For when you draw, I will come down and set a new order, and you must know that you are rightly aligned to draw that line. Many are coming into a place that they have not been before and I Am mustering an army. If you draw the line too narrow, you will attempt to cause My army to be lessened. Watch how you draw the line, for I Am forming a new army throughout the earth.

Brat (23 June 20): An unsuspecting discerner would not see anything unseemly in this:

Steve Shultz: “…Our cave moments have been ordained by God, but now the Lord is saying, “COME OUT!” What God protects and prepares in private He will use for His glory in public…”

Christie Roe Pride (24 June 20): Your prayers and worship are still mighty weapons and effective for battle. You just can’t war in the heavenlies until you’ve been healed and reset. He’s been protecting you, so do not be dismayed. He’s still using you, even now, and the plans ahead are still Mighty as you’ve come to know in advance of their being birthed in the natural. The spiritual realm is very real and God is waiting for divine timing and His alignment

Pete Garza in FB message (23 June 20 at 12:16 pm): Please help me understand, thanks

Steve Shultz: This word, while it’s clear that there will be storms, is the type of word that I sometimes describe as almost “written in code.”

Brat: It’s what women have battled for millennia.

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “When the transformers of this earth blow up, be the transformer of My covenant that will extend and create a communication in the heavens that the enemy cannot understand, but that My people can receive. Arise and transform and be the transformer, and as you extend your hand you will be the guy wire of safety for many in days ahead.

Pete Garza: Go Back the Way the Way You Came…

Brat (23 June 20 at 4:15 pm): I shared an email with you entitled “Train Tracks” where I expanded on what God was sharing with me and the importance of acknowledgement.  Maybe you never got the email.  Maybe the Elijah List is my Giant and God is protecting and preparing me in private FB Messenger for what He will use for His glory in public…

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “The turbulence of the air is creating a vibration so that when I hit the communication wires, they will make a sound that has not been heard. Let the wings that you have with you extend and catch the turbulence. Arise, that the vibration of the turbulence will cause the sound to resound in you. I Am positioning you in a key place for communication.

[Bang goes the hammer on the golden spike.]

Rachel Hackenberg (24 June 20): Enjoying a brief reprieve from war? Zedekiah appeases his politicians who want Jeremiah silenced and locked up so they can maintain the illusion of peace in the city.

Jeremiah 28:9 As for the prophet who prophesies peace, when the word of that prophet comes true, then it will be known that the LORD has truly sent the prophet.”

Brat (23 June 20): I try to show the development of the collective conversation and Steve Shultz pulls your piece by Arc Speak to give corporate direction or make us go back the same way we came?  I came in through Facebook Messenger.  There was no message heard or understood.  If there had been, there would be accountability.  The bottom line is that I feel like my life’s work is unwelcome.  Just like Jeremiah’s was.  Didn’t Baruch, his scribe, have to write his works twice because a king burned the first set of scrolls he wrote?

Matthew 10:41 Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous;

Brat (23 June 20): I don’t know any more who’s righteous.  Abraham asked God if He could find ten righteous in Sodom then maybe God wouldn’t destroy it?  Ten is the Jewish quorum.  There was no quorum.  God couldn’t find ten.  Amanda Grace said that what’s going on in Seattle right now is a “Sodom”.

Nate Johnston: I command every door of terrorism around the globe to be shut right now and every plot to be exposed by the light of Jesus!

Andrew Towe: All of the intense warfare has been a setup for the EXPLOSION of awakening and an authentic outpouring of My Spirit. Refuse to settle for pretend food and play church. There is an alarm sounding, Awakening is here. Step into the Supernatural flow of My Spirit.”

When Light Came In (23 June 20): There are so many factors that play into why we stayed in abusive relationships. Don’t blame yourself for staying. Don’t blame yourself if you’re still in an abusive relationship. Leaving is hard. And staying isn’t your fault.” – @_weareher

Nate and Christy Johnston (22 June 20): The enemies plan is to keep you HELD UP in a lifestyle of ABSORBING everything, feeling everything, without ever knowing how to release the answer into those places. It causes deep frustration, confusion, and hopelessness, but it doesn’t have to be that way!

Psalm 13:4 and my enemy will say, “I have prevailed”; my foes will rejoice because I am shaken.

When Light Came In (23 June 20): Emotional reasons often keep us in these relationships. Love is powerful. Abusive relationships don’t start with violence, so it makes sense that we have strong emotional connections with our abusers. Once the abuse starts, we can develop other emotions like hope, shame, or fear that keep us from leaving.

Helen Calder (8 August 2010): One of the benefits and signs of having a gift of discernment of spirits is a heightened awareness of God’s Presence and anointing. A true discerner will have a passion for the un-grieved Presence of the Holy Spirit.

[Bang goes the hammer on the golden spike.]

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “Know this: I WILL HAVE A HOLY ARRAY – DO NOT GET IN MY WAY!”

Psalm 13:5 But I trusted in Your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.

Bill Yount: Now may the heavens open over you to receive the perfect love from the only perfect father.

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “I Am creating a new communication network throughout the earth. Position yourself on the communication line, for I have lines around the earth where I Am speaking from Heaven. If you will position yourself out of the fray around you and stand in the line, you will hear how to walk into your prosperity ahead.

Rachel Hackenberg (24 June 20): For the Sake of Expediency

Chuck D. Pierce (22 June 20): “Be like the bird…turn quickly into the storm, and receive the wind that will lift you up and take you to higher, higher, and higher places. I will take you over the storm and let you look down and see how minute what you are in is, compared to My majesty. You’re still flying too low and I must have a people who come up to a place to hear the songs that have never been heard.

Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai: So, in our text about the spring, Israel would say these words, spoken in truth, in order to awaken a response from the spiritual source of that spring and provide water to Israel. Until Israel spoke the words of the song the spring would not flow.

Psalm 13:6 I will sing to the LORD, because he has dealt bountifully with me.

After These Things 22 June 20

22 Jun

Monday, June 22, 2020

[7 pages of dialogue]

Genesis 22:1 After these things God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.”

Brat: After what things?!  The Lectionary Barons jumped from Hagar and Ishmael’s expulsion from the family straight to Isaac being set up to be sacrificed on the altar.  What did Abraham learn that he was getting tested on?

The Treaty at Beersheba

Rev. Phil (21 June 20): But established orders tend to fall apart eventually. Structures give way under their own weight. And what is the church, then? Who are we, then?[1]

The rabbis at Ascent of Safed (21 June 20): We are so happy to be here for you and offer a respite from the daily tensions and some direction during the uncertainty and challenges that surround us.

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): Direction and Division

Genesis 21:22 At that time Abimelek and Phicol the commander of his forces said to Abraham, “God is with you in everything you do.

Dr. Candice Smithyman: This past week the Lord gave me a dream where I was receiving favor every day. I knew this was a word for His people.  This is a time on the Hebrew calendar for favor to flow in the earth. There is a portal in heaven open now until July 9 at sundown, which is the 17th day of Tammuz.  Now until then, God will pour out his favor immeasurably upon His people for advancement of the Kingdom. This is not unusual as when God wants things done in the earth He will pour forth His favor. Why? Because the favor of God opens doors that no man can open himself. We know favor opened doors for many including Esther, David, Moses, Joseph, Daniel, and even our Lord and Savior, Jesus.

Genesis 21:23 Now swear to me here before God that you will not deal falsely with me or my children or my descendants. Show to me and the country where you now reside as a foreigner the same kindness I have shown to you.”

Pastor Nkem Nnaeto, M.D. (19 June 20): “Yes?” I answered, trying to remember if we had met before.

Genesis 21:24 Abraham said, “I swear it.”

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): Put no trust in a friend, have no confidence in a loved one … for the son treats the father with contempt, the daughter rises up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. – Micah 7:5-6 (NRSV)

When Light Came In (21 June 20): I know a lot of us grew up with some version of “honor your father and mother.” One of the ways we honor husbands or fathers who hurt people is to set limits with them or cut contact. It’s our way of honoring *fatherhood* as a concept better than they live it.

Rev. Phil (21 June 20): To be the church that responds to Jesus’ invitation is to search for the cracks in the veneer of decadence, to find them and to tear them open, to name what is rotten underneath and, crucially, inescapably, not simply to name and to criticize, but to cast ourselves, with equal measure of grief and hope, down into the rottenness, down to the places where we do not want to go, down to where we will finally see what is true, what endures, what refuses to die, even there. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): Yikes. Alas for Micah, to be alive at a time when direction has become so unmoored from truth that friends no longer trust each other. When truth has become so unmoored from fact that loved ones rise up against each other.

Brat: You make Abraham swear before he has a chance to voice his complaint?  The Philistine king is the one with the power in this twisted dynamic.

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): Alas for us, too.

Brat: Abraham had the spiritual gift of kindness and I think Abimelech took advantage of Abraham’s kindness.

Rabbi Leiter (17 June 2020): The Divine Power of Hindsight…

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): Not that every cause of division is bad. There are good reasons one might sunder oneself from another; anyone who’s left an abusive relationship or stopped talking to a racist or homophobic uncle can tell you that.

Pastor Nkem Nnaeto, M.D. (19 June 20): “Excuse me,” said a sharp, stern voice. I half-turned to see who had disturbed my morning bagel-and-cream-cheese feast. My eyes landed on a 30-something female glaring at me.[2]

Laurie Riggs: He is using all of your clay, He’s not leaving anything out, and with great attention He is molding it together even as you have often desired that it could be one day… healing is coming forth, let there be no doubt.

Jennifer A. Miskov (27 April 20): Reform means to reform or reshape something that already existed. Jeremiah 18 is a good example of this, as the potter decides to reform the clay that has been marred. Instead of throwing out the old clay and starting over, he chooses to reshape the existing clay. Thank God for this! And while that passage in Jeremiah 18 was a very significant “now word” for me a couple years back, it feels as though God is emphasizing a new word for me, and maybe for us, in this new season.

Genesis 21:25 Then Abraham complained to Abimelek about a well of water that Abimelek’s servants had seized.

Brat: We’ve already talked about my writings and dialogues from the lectionary readings [“wellspring”] getting hijacked and the Church not coming to provide sanctuary.

Rev. Phil (21 June 20): For so much of our nation’s history, to be part of the church has been a designation of institutional membership, a cultural practice encoded in spiritual language handed down from generation to generation; an elegant packaging of some laudable core values, and a safe, enclosed space in which to work out the meaning of life according to those values. In this understanding of church as institution, which patterns itself according to the societal contexts in which it operates—the world outside the walls—there are usually a number of factions, organized along political, liturgical, or ideological spectrums, and whoever dominates in numbers or funding tends to dictate what we stand for and the ways in which we do so. It’s not that we ignore the gospel in this mode of church; it’s simply that the “good news” we share often sounds like the good news we want to hear, or more specifically, the good news that the powerful want to hear.

When Light Came In (20 June 20): I heard this at church a lot, especially as I tried to get free.

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): So it’s hard to know, fully, the reasons for the divided state of things today.

Rabbi Shaul Leiter: The Sin of the Golden Calf set the stage for an estrangement and then renewal of our relationship with G-d but on a much higher level than was imaginable before. Like friends or a couple when they overcome a problem between them, the process makes their love ever so much stronger. Similarly, the Sin of the Golden Calf brought the Jewish people to a connection with G-d that changed the whole game.

Genesis 21:26 But Abimelek said, “I don’t know who has done this. You did not tell me, and I heard about it only today.”

Jennifer A. Miskov (27 April 20): What if, in this season, God is actually creating the new rather than reforming the old? Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love, teach on, and have been marked by reformation fire; it indeed has had its significant time and place in history. I’m actually a trained revival historian who has given my life to researching past moves of God. I’ve seen how history can prophesy into our future. But what if in this unique season, God wants to take us beyond reformation of the past because He is creating something brand new? What if, rather than reshape existing structures, mindsets and heart postures, He actually wants to do a new thing? What if He is waiting for us to surrender the old so that we can receive the new?

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): Of course, that’s only about as good as someone lost in the wilderness knowing which way is north. It doesn’t tell you where you are, or where you’re going, or what’s between here and there, or if the people you’re with will agree where you ought to go.

Ascent of Safed (21 June 20): Hi Kathryn, An Oasis of Peace at a Time of Uncertainty ❤

When Light Came In (20 June 20): Verses about peace, written, spoken, prayed over me, meant to encourage.

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): Is it because what’s right and true is subjective, unknowable?

Jennifer A. Miskov (27 April 20): I think in this time we need to be open to the possibility and even expect God to do something never done before. What if God wants to match this unprecedented storm with an unprecedented new move of God?

Steve Shultz: We can easily spot a “smile” when we see it across people’s mouths…but can you spot it in someone’s eyes?

Pastor Nkem Nnaeto, M.D. (19 June 20): “How did you get in here?” she asked, her voice dripping with accusation. “This lounge is for doctors only.”

When Light Came In (20 June 20): They did not. Not while trauma was locked in my body. Being constantly encouraged to be at peace, while I was on food stamps, working full time, battling through court date after court date, ripping my life away from the power and control.

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): Because someone shadowy is feeding the world misinformation to create discord for nefarious purposes?

Jennifer A. Miskov (27 April 20): I read a Bible verse the other morning that caused me to approach prayer differently in this unique season. In Psalm 51, David is responding to the Lord after he got exposed for his sin with Bathsheba by the prophet Nathan. In his repentance and longing for reconnection, he cries out to the Lord and says, “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me” (Psalm 51:10 NIV).[3]

Genesis 21:27 So Abraham brought sheep and cattle and gave them to Abimelek, and the two men made a treaty.

Pastor Nkem Nnaeto, M.D. (19 June 20): I was rendered speechless. An all-too-familiar mixture of hurt, confusion, anger and embarrassment washed over me. I looked down at my well-curated, professional clothing and clean, appropriate shoes and wondered what, to her, looked out of place. I looked at the electronic hospital pass clipped on my jacket with my name and “M.D.” printed on it in bold type. The pass granted me access to this doctors-only lounge.

Jennifer A. Miskov (27 April 20): Today, will we make room for God to birth a new thing within our hearts, families, and churches? Will we let go of the old to receive the new? Will we let go of what’s safe for something that’s dangerously outside of our comfort zones? Will we lean in close to the Father’s heartbeat to hear what new thing He might want to birth in and through us in this season?

Genesis 21:28 Abraham set apart seven ewe lambs from the flock,

Brat: The way Jesus set apart Seven Churches from the remnant?

Genesis 21:29 and Abimelek asked Abraham, “What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs you have set apart by themselves?”

Pastor Nkem Nnaeto, M.D. (19 June 20): “I am a doctor,” I heard myself say in a strangled voice, pointing to my nametag. Her eyes darted to my badge as she began to blush. Embarrassment and apologies followed soon after, but she was unable to offer any further explanation for her query apart from what was painfully obvious to both of us.

When Light Came In (21 June 20): It’s hard when we’re coparenting with a toxic person who behaves like a bully and a child instead of the kind of father we wanted for our kids.

Rev. Phil (21 June 20): Here and now, in our present turmoil, some of that work has been done for us. The veneer is already cracked. Some of the rottenness is already exposed. But we still have to choose whether we will get down there and look at it. We still have to choose whether we will do something about it. Nobody will force us to, not even God; and the urge to look away, to go back to the old mode of being, will continue to be powerful. But what we decide will determine what sort of church we are part of. Are we an institution of the present order, subject to the whims of history, or are we a community of disciples, of learners, of passionate lovers of God, seeking Holy Wisdom into the uncomfortable places she calls us?

Jennifer A. Miskov (27 April 20): What if, on the other side of this pandemic, we don’t just have reformed hearts, but we have brand new ones instead? Or what if the Church isn’t just reformed to become a better model of the one it was before the pandemic, but it becomes a brand-new wineskin—so much so that people don’t even recognize it because it’s so fresh, vibrant, and able to steward the new wine of the season? What if the following Scripture is actually a “now word”?

Genesis 21:30 He replied, “Accept these seven lambs from my hand as a witness that I dug this well.”

Brat: Amen. (Revelation 5:7)

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): But it’s a whole lot better than nothing.

Nancy Taylor Tate (22 June 20): As I write this, I again think of my encounter in the grocery store. Perhaps we had different backgrounds, or even different colors of skin. We both wore face masks, yet we both had “smiling eyes.” When I smiled and she smiled back, rather than conflict, peace and goodwill were generated, which brightened my day, and I believe it did hers too.[4]

Pastor Nkem Nnaeto, M.D. (19 June 20): As the interaction ended, I wanted to scream—what was it about me that didn’t fit her description of a doctor? But we both already knew the answer to that. I tried to finish my bagel, but realized I was blinking back tears. I had lost my appetite. I looked regretfully at the bowl of fresh fruit I was planning to eat. I got up to leave. I needed to be alone.

Genesis 21:31 So that place was called Beersheba, because the two men swore an oath there.

Rabbi YY Jacobson: Our differences must not divide us; on the contrary, our differences complete us.

Rev. Phil (21 June 20): Most days, I doubt that I have the strength and the courage to choose this latter vision. Most days, I just want to roll over and go back to sleep. It would be so much nicer to stay on the surface of my Christian identity, to let church function as an ornament, as a daydream where we talk about forgiveness and love in hazy terms without ever submitting to the fierce demands that such things actually require.

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): Prayer
When everything is shaky and the world seems directionless, help us look to you, our bright north star. Amen.

Genesis 21:32 After the treaty had been made at Beersheba, Abimelek and Phicol the commander of his forces returned to the land of the Philistines.

Pastor Nkem Nnaeto, M.D. (19 June 20): As a black female physician, I have learned to endure the combinations of subtle and overt racism in medicine. My experiences range from patients outright refusing to be seen by me, to some questioning my qualifications, and at times preferring the opinions of the white nurses I supervise, as opposed to my expert opinion.

When Light Came In (20 June 20): It was the opposite of peaceful, and that wasn’t because I didn’t have faith or somehow refused peace. It was because I had WORK to do to get to the peace. In many ways I fought my way to peace. Fought the broken internalized messages. Fought the gaslighting. Fought against judgement, lies, male privilege in court, and my own depression.

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): In a world so divided that nobody agrees which way is up, what’s east and what’s west, Micah lands on this: “I will look to the Lord.” The poles that used to give direction may be shifting. The world may be all subjective postmodernism all the time, but for Christians, there’s at least one thing to rely on: the grace and the gospel of God.

Genesis 21:33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called on the name of the Lord, the Eternal God.

Rev. Phil (21 June 20): But then, always, there is Jesus, with his unsettling words and his compelling gaze that cuts through me like a sword. I see him looking back at me from the cross, forgiving my weakness, unimaginably patient with my fear. I see him in the faces of my homeless neighbors, my black and brown neighbors, my lgbtq neighbors, my conservative neighbors, my liberal neighbors, my neighbors of every background and belief, and I hear his voice:

Jennifer A. Miskov (27 April 20): What if, in our present times, God wants to do something so completely new that we have never experienced or even heard of in our lifetime (Joshua 3:1-4)? What if the new thing God wants to do is so different from what we’ve seen before, so outside of our boxes, that it’s even offensive to some because they have no grid, box, or program it will nicely fit into (John 12:3)? What if the Holy Spirit wants to lead our lives, ministries, and churches beyond all of our best plans, strategies, visions, histories, and agendas in a whole new way that looks like nothing we’ve ever experienced before?

When Light Came In (20 June 20): “When we’ve lived in a powerless place in response to trauma, it isn’t easy to trust that our body has our back. We can’t simply tell ourselves that we’re okay, often we need to have an embodied experience of doing what needs to be done before we can feel safe enough to be at ease.” – @roomtothrive

Pastor Nkem Nnaeto, M.D. (19 June 20): Racism is not new. It tried to rear its ugly head in the early church. In Acts 6, we see the godly way to deal with it. First, it was recognized by the leadership. The voices and the outcries of the oppressed were heard and honored. A committee of carefully selected members was formed, selected with an emphasis on the fullness of the Holy Spirit and wisdom (v. 3). Their task was to actively combat racism in the church on behalf of all God’s children.

Genesis 21:34 And Abraham stayed in the land of the Philistines for a long time.

When Light Came In (20 June 20): That embodied experience comes as we work toward healing. It comes as we process traumatic memories in therapy with EMDR or somatic experiencing. It comes as we scream our wounds out — in prayer, into pillows, from mountain tops, or through ink on paper.

Pastor Nkem Nnaeto, M.D. (19 June 20): The apostles made this divisive issue a priority and labored tirelessly in the ministering of the Word (teaching and preaching) and in prayer to prevent the deepening of this schism in the body of Christ.

When Light Came In (21 June 20): Write a letter to younger you at a particular age you needed a loving adult. Tell Little You what kind of parent you’d have been to her at that time.

MercyMe: “Dear Younger Me”: https://youtu.be/-l70C3ePyIQ

Jo (21 June 20): Prayer today…

Brat: OMG!  YES!!!  I have heard the song before, but I’ve never seen the video.  I saw the lyrics scrolling by on crumpled pieces of paper and I wept!  It made the message even that much more impactful.  It touched deep within my own soul.  I am still wiping away my tears.  What a gift!  Thank you for sharing this song-as-prayer.

Pastor Nkem Nnaeto, M.D. (19 June 20): Again, the Bible has provided us with a blueprint on how to approach and conquer this issue that still plagues our society. The issue of racism cannot be separated from our ministry. The church must listen, pray and honor all members of the community and seek the fullness of the Spirit to love our neighbors as Jesus commanded.

Rev. Phil (21 June 20): Jesus’ words today remind us that there is another choice when it comes to understanding the meaning of the church—a choice that is unsettling, a bit scary even—one that looks nothing like the established order in which we are tempted to become comfortably numb.

Pink Floyd: “Comfortably Numb” [https://youtu.be/_FrOQC-zEog]

Rev. Phil (21 June 20): He describes the cost of following him in the starkest of terms—it is to give up family bonds, it is to give up one’s safety, to give up one’s own life, even, in order to find and participate in whatever strange, magnetic sweetness he seems to carry within himself.  This is not a metaphorical invitation. It is quite serious.

Quinn Caldwell (22 June 20): Because some people know what’s right and true, while others are wrong?

When Light Came In (20 June 20): We all want peace. But being told to be peaceful doesn’t get us there faster, it dilutes our efforts with confusion and shame that we’re getting it wrong.

Jennifer A. Miskov (27 April 20): It’s time to lean into intimacy with Jesus and to move wherever the Holy Spirit is leading—even if it’s into uncharted territory. There needs to be a yielding and willingness to move wherever the Spirit leads, in the smallest of details to the greatest—even when we don’t understand why. There’s never been a more opportune time to risk on the other side of this pandemic. Enough time has now passed; change is inevitable. Normal will never look the same. I feel that the reformation of heart we have leaned into has prepared us precisely for this moment in history.

Uncovered Disciple 21 June 20

21 Jun

Father’s Day, Sunday, June 21, 2020

[6 pages]

Matthew 10:24 “A disciple is not above the teacher, nor a slave above the master;

Kris Vallotton (20 June 20): At one time in history, prophets were the cultural catalysts that radically influenced kings and the nations thereof. But where have all the prophets who engage in the world and bring light to the darkest of circumstances gone? Why don’t we see them today?

Helen Calder (18 June 20): In this place of transition—where you cannot see how God will fulfil your dreams from Him for yourself and others—you are in a Divine appointment.[1]

Israel365 (20 June 20): In this weeks Torah Portion, Korach rebels against his cousins Moshe and Aharon, accusing them of taking positions of power for themselves. He declares that the entire Nation of Israel is holy, and therefore questions why Moshe and Aharon have raised themselves above the rest of the congregation. In making this claim, Korach not only implies that Moshe and Aharon inappropriately chose the leadership positions for themselves, thereby denying Hashem’s role in their appointment. …

Matthew 10:25 it is enough for the disciple to be like the teacher, and the slave like the master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign those of his household!

Revelation 6:15 Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains.

Pete Garza (in “Zeal for Your House” 18 June 20): The church has found itself secluded inside a cave. This cave experience has caused many believers to draw closer to the father and others to pull away. God has allowed us to reflect both in our lives and in our spiritual walks to truly see where our hearts lay. He has exposed our weaknesses and revealed our strengths.

Matthew Laney (21 June 20): This is a story about refugees traumatized by genocide and slavery, and from living in a roving refugee camp for decades. At this point in the narrative, they discover more challenges waiting for them across the border.

Wanda Alger (08 June 20): As believers our unity must be based around the Person of Jesus Christ, not a doctrine, ideology, or ministry agenda.[2]

Brat (in “Train Tracks” to Pete Garza on 16 June 20): For example, my friend Sophia Buller tries bridging the prophetic gap between the Baptists and the Evangelicals and the Vineyard-types.  Some of them believe in the prophetic but don’t teach the whole Word.  They pick and choose scriptures to build their cases.  The end result is that their message ends up sounding like New Agers and “Name-it-and-claim-it” theology.  Others expound on entire chapters of scripture and teach beautiful sermons, but don’t believe in the prophetic, so the Word is not fulfilled, and endurance becomes drudgery to the point of slavery.  Even though Sophia steps into the gap with solid Truth grounded in the Word and prayer, and social media friends and I can see her calling at work, there are no apostles stepping up to acknowledge that she has those gifts of bridge-building and encouragement (tempered with sternness when necessary).  And she’s made connections with an apostle over here in Ventura, California but he’s quiet.

Retired Bishop J Jon Bruno on Facebook (15 June 2020):   Thanks for the tip to circumvent Facebook… Works!! I have a whole new profile. I see posts from people I didn’t see anymore. Facebook’s new algorithm picks the same people – around 25-who will see your posts. Hold your finger anywhere in this post and click ” copy “. Go to your page where it says ” what’s on your mind”. Tap your finger anywhere in the empty field. Click paste. This is going to circumvent the system.

Hello new and old friends!

Drop a single hello, thanks!

Brat (21 June 20): Hello!

Helen Calder (8 August 2010): However, the bottom line of the presence of any gift is that it is recognised and acknowledged by leaders in the church and that it is useful for its purpose—which is to help build up the church and bring people closer to Jesus.

Gypsy Dallas Smith (21 June 20): There is going to be a rise in men coming to the aid of the women in battle, the husbands, fathers, sons and warriors for Jesus. God is raising up men in a new way to contend for the things of God like never before. Many of them carry orphaned spirits as they have not had earthly fathers. But the Lord is going to do a deep, quick work to help these men become the spiritual leaders in their homes and communities that they were created to be. Its no coincidence that God has revealed this to me on Father’s Day!

Matthew Laney (21 June 20): Fleeing or being forced out of one’s country is a harrowing hardship. Beyond that, re-settling in a new country can be extraordinarily stressful and intimidating.

Brat: The Facebook “country” is ‘no country for old men’.  It is the children who understand it.

Kris Vallotton (20 June 20): In the days of the prophet Elijah, there arose a company of men who were called the “sons of the prophets” (Kings 20:35). These men traveled throughout the world ravaging the powers of darkness, wreaking havoc on evil kingdoms. They had no tolerance for the destructive behavior of wicked kings but rather turned many to righteousness.

Helen Calder (18 June 20): Many people do not understand what it is like for discerners, as our senses pick up more of what is going on in the environment, than others do.

Matthew Laney (21 June 20): The spies brought an unfavorable report of the land that they had spied out, saying, “All the people we saw in the land are of great size. There we saw the Nephilim and we seemed like grasshoppers next to them.” – Numbers 13:32-33 (NRSV, adapted)

Nate Johnston (in “Zeal for Your House” 18 June 20): I prophesy that this will not be a week of being BAITED & HIJACKED by the enemy into the DIVERSION he wants you to obsess and lose your peace over. He wants you hearing every bump in the night and putting your fists up for every fight. He wants you so empty that you make messes he will tell you are impossible to clean up then beat you up for it.

Matthew 10:26 “So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered up that will not be uncovered, and nothing secret that will not become known.

Helen Calder (18 June 20): You may be perceiving the demonic forces at work, and be alert to the spiritual battle taking place

Wanda Alger (08 June 20): Choose your battles. Don’t get distracted by side issues but keep your focus on becoming a community where God’s tangible peace and presence can dwell.

Brat (21 June 20): Nate said we would not be baited and hijacked into a diversion this week.  I had just prayed in the solitude of my own car yesterday for sanctuary for my prayers, because they were once again baited and hijacked from my very lips.  I need privacy to be real with God.

Kris Vallotton (20 June 20): Where have all the prophets gone?

Helen Calder (8 August 2010): Whenever a gift is used to criticise or tear down a church, person or leader, you know it is being misused, or is simply a person’s hurt, frustration or agenda masquerading as discernment.

Wanda Alger (08 June 20): Honor those in spiritual authority; bless them and pray for them, even those you disagree with (1 Tim 2:2).

Gypsy Dallas Smith (21 June 20): I saw myself standing in a camp, I saw a tall fence with a narrow gate. I saw a man helping a wounded woman coming down a mountain and through the narrow gate into the camp I was standing in. I remember someone asking me, “what are they doing?” I replied, “They are crossing over.”

Helen Calder (8 August 2010): If a prophetic or revelatory message is brought, a discerner can often tell whether it is anointed of the Spirit or from the speaker’s own heart.

Rabbi Shaul Yosef Leiter (in “Zeal for Your House” 18 June 20): Everyone agrees that Korach had great talents. Nevertheless, leadership is determined by Heaven. Rebbe Bunim of Peshischa writes that Korach’s terrible mistake was in trying to forcefully seize the leadership and its glory, which only led to his downfall.[3]

Helen Calder (8 August 2010): This is not always the case, and as with other revelatory gifts such as prophecy, you will sometimes get it wrong or have incomplete discernment (1 Thess 5:19-21, 1 Cor 13:9-10)

Israel365 (20 June 20): …He also makes the erroneous claim that every individual in the nation is on the same level of holiness. While it is true that everyone is endowed with an element of Godliness, it is up to each person to elevate himself or herself to even greater levels of holiness. The exact degree of a person’s holiness, therefore, depends on their individual achievements.

Gypsy Dallas Smith (21 June 20): The men are being raised up to help us cross over and its being birthed in prayer!  I am amazed, as I realize why I wasn’t supposed to release it until today. It is in honor of Father’s Day and the men taking their rightful place as the spiritual leaders of the home!

Wanda Alger (08 June 20): To be a true “community” prayer group with corporate authority in prayer, seek participation with believers from across the city and not just one fellowship.

Helen Calder (8 August 2010): When you submit what you are seeing or sensing, your leaders confirm your accuracy and your gift begins to be recognised for its effectiveness.

Anne Ballard (21 June 20): In choosing to admit our need and submit it before God, He has room and permission to step in and lend us His strength. You may already know your weakness, or you may not be able to discern what you need from Him yet. Take some time this season to lean into His strength; to rest in His protection and ability when yours doesn’t quite measure up. When you are weak, He is strong.[4]

Gypsy Dallas Smith (21 June 20): So ladies, rejoice as your hearts cry for your husbands and sons is coming to fruition. There is a new generation of men being raised up with humility and submissiveness to the Father, that they will not try and control the women in their lives, but rather be their “Battle Buddy.” They will help carry the weight, that so many of us have had to carry for so long, alone!

Lance Wallnau (20 June 20): “God doesn’t give you a desire without giving you the equipment to fulfill it.”

Wanda Alger (08 June 20): Does the Church of your city have a unified voice that stands for Kingdom values in the public square? Is your congregation or community ready to not only take a stand against the rising rebellion and lawlessness in our city streets, but take the lead in establishing something better? If the Church is supposed to be the Spirit-filled life-giving force that brings purpose and order into our chaotic world, how are we doing?

Israel365 (20 June 20): …Today, we are seeing a very similar social unrest. It is important to remember that everyone is holy and created in the image of God, and we must all strive to be leaders like Moshe and Aharon who sought only peace as opposed to Korach, who was driven by his desire for honor.

Brat (in “Train Tracks” to Pete Garza on 16 June 20): “A picture comes to mind of connecting two lines of railroads.  The apostolic covering over the cave dweller says to the individual that their gift is necessary on the rail tracks and applied in a specific place and time, just as two disparate rail lines are connected to make one (like “the Golden Spike” in California).  That acknowledgment is what Jezebel stole.  If we just go back by the same way we came without acknowledging the individual gift to benefit the greater whole, then we just repeat the cycle and there is no honor.

Helen Calder (18 June 20): You realize that God is at work behind the scenes, orchestrating His purpose.  And this transforms your discernment.

Kris Vallotton (20 June 20): Have you ever heard of the “sons of prophets?”

Matthew 10:27 What I say to you in the dark, tell in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim from the housetops.

Matthew Laney (21 June 20): Then spies scope out the new country. To their dismay, the spies discover gigantic, intimidating people living there. No longer hopeful, the Israelites feel overwhelmed, outmatched, and demoralized, like bugs underfoot.

Kris Vallotton (20 June 20): I propose that many have forgotten their mandate, abandoned their mission, and/or allowed satan to intimidate them into silence all while the very culture we’ve been called to impact is in a state of moral decay.

Brat: I shared and received SILENCE from you, too.

Matthew 10:28 Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Wanda Alger (08 June 20): Unresolved sin issues become open doors for the enemy. As the Holy Spirit reveals root issues on the land, ask the Lord for wisdom and take steps to clear the land of any sin, immorality, bloodshed, broken covenants, or idolatry through prayers of repentance, both personally and corporately.

Helen Calder (18 June 20): When we have been in touch with the Holy Spirit, the fruit of our discernment will reflect Him

Matthew 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.

Dr. Stephen Gundry: Power Blues: LOW STOCK ALERT

Matthew 10:30 And even the hairs of your head are all counted.

Helen Calder (18 June 20): If the result of our discernment is anxiety, oppression, negativity or suspicion, that is not the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Brat (in “Train Tracks” to Pete Garza on 16 June 20): I’ve exposed what I could in my blog [https://truthinus.wordpress.com/] but the Churches are experts in suppressing it, stonewalling it, or gaslighting it (all of Jezebel’s tactics, and all done in the name of “divine exploits”).  However, that only proves to me that what I’m saying must be working in Spirit and in Truth somehow, but there is never any closure.  It’s all a chess game to the Great They.  I need a Giant killer positioned beside me and my friends.

Matthew 10:31 So do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Helen Calder (8 August 2010): This ability can result in us feeling different, lonely or misunderstood at times, especially when starting out. It is vital that someone with a developing gift of discernment finds a safe place to journey with others who are similarly gifted and accountable in the life of their church.

Kris Vallotton (19 June 20): As someone who has been prophetically equipping believers for over 25 years, I’ve also been actively engaged in my city, my nation, and stepped into challenging God-ordained moments with leaders of tremendous power. So, consider the weight of my words when I say, the moral decay that we see in society is happening on our watch! It’s time for God’s prophets to awaken the Church to her glorious call and provoke the people of God to action.[5]

Brat: So please do it!  I hear your words but don’t see your actions.  It doesn’t reach me.  But I bless you in the Name of Jesus, to go forth and conquer, to go where you may not have gone before.

Matthew 10:32 “Everyone therefore who acknowledges Me before others, I also will acknowledge before My Father in heaven;

Wanda Alger (08 June 20): Determine to walk “offense-free” and practice forgiveness and forbearance towards others.

Helen Calder (8 August 2010): This is because—and I will continually reiterate this—the highest use of the gift of discernment is not to see what the enemy is doing, but to discern what the Spirit of God is doing.

Revelation 3:5 The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.

Matthew 10:33 but whoever denies Me before others, I also will deny before My Father in heaven.

Helen Calder (8 August 2010): One of the benefits and signs of having a gift of discernment of spirits is a heightened awareness of God’s Presence and anointing. A true discerner will have a passion for the un-grieved Presence of the Holy Spirit.

Zeal for Your House 18 June 20

19 Jun

Working Dates: Thursday, June 18, 2020 to Friday, June 19, 2020

[spilled over to 11 pages of dialogue]

Numbers 16:They came as a group to oppose Moses and Aaron and said to them, “You have gone too far! The whole community is holy, every one of them, and the Lord is with them. Why then do you set yourselves above the Lord’s assembly?”

Rabbi Shaul Yosef Leiter: Everyone agrees that Korach had great talents. Nevertheless, leadership is determined by Heaven. Rebbe Bunim of Peshischa writes that Korach’s terrible mistake was in trying to forcefully seize the leadership and its glory, which only lead to his downfall.[1]

Rev. Whitney Rice (14 June 20): We’re either wallowing in shame as the Betrayer, or patting ourselves on the back as the noble Disciples.

Psalm 69:7 It is for your sake that I have borne reproach, that shame has covered my face.

Dr. Rivkah Lambert Adler (17 June 20): Underground Preparations Made By Christians To Protect Jews And Shepherd Them To Israel [2]

Rabbi YY Jacobson (18 June 20): They all turn to the Jewish woman, and give her a subtle, “Well?”

She replies, “I have a son. He’s argumentative, confrontational, self-centered, narcissistic, impulsive, impossible and irrational. When he walks into a room, people say, Oh My G-d!”[3]

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (19 June 20): Organization of 70 Nations Announces Court of Judgment Against Trump/Netanyahu/ICC/Israeli High Court[4]

Pete Garza (16 June 20): Covering and alignment is so essential and vital. God is establishing his governmental order and we are seeing the five fold being established. We must get away from running wild

Dr. Alexander Poltorak: Evil, by definition, is that which conceals the true source of existence, the Creator. The very term for evil in the Kabbala, kelipa, means shell or husk. It is something that has no independent value.

Rabbi Yehudah Aryeh Leib Alter: The Sefas Emes teaches in the name of the Holy Jew of Peshis’cha that when detractors come up in opposition to the tzadik, they specifically attack him concerning a quality in which he has already achieved perfection. The Baal Shem Tov even suggests that the detractors of a tzadik are created from the husks which are shed as the Tzadik strives for perfection in his character. Therefore, one who would come to accuse the tzadik, see in him only that which is similar to the husk from which he was created. He is limited to only a superficial understanding of the ways of the tzadik.

Dr. Alexander Poltorak: Evil was created to provide us with the freedom of choice, which is possible where there is an alternative to good available. Had there been no outer shell concealing the truth, we would be forced to obey G‑d’s will. If denied free choice, we would also be denied reward.

Pete Garza (16 June 20): If you want to kill Giants we must position ourselves with Giant killers this season.

Me: I agree. A lot of cave dwellers know this and are not running wild, but they have nowhere to go to position themselves. Our stones have slain Goliaths, but the brothers simply scoffed in jealousy and cowardice.

Rabbi Yehudah Aryeh Leib Alter: Korach’s perspective was childish and superficial. He was not able to perceive the leadership of Moses for what it really was. It is written, “...and jealousy causes the bones to rot.” (Proverbs 12:4) This refers to Korach who lacked inner substance. Everything Korach did was external, for show – that he should appear very just and righteous. Moses and Aaron were the inner light of the Jewish nation. They were completely inner substance, a character which is often not easily discerned. Yet in Judaism, it is what counts.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (19 June 20): “The Tribunal is suing the defendants before the Creator of the world and before the Judges of the Tribunal to determine whether they violated the basic laws regarding the ancestral boundaries of the Jewish people, the Land of Israel, which is their inheritance and legacy as recorded in the Torah.

Rabbi YY Jacobson (18 June 20): You want our people to have a strong national identity? You want them to feel confident that they are not thieves occupying another nations’ territory? You want them to feel deeply connected to their homeland and not feel apologetic about their existence in Israel? You want them to stop apologizing for Jews to have the right to own one land on the entire planet? Then do not divorce Israel from the Ark of Torah. Do not climb that mountain without G-d in your midst. The Rebbe always taught that only when we will link up the State of Israel with the Holiness of Israel will we respect ourselves and the world will respect us too.

Amanda Grace (16 June 20): HOWEVER, when the enemy attempts to come in, like a FLOOD the Spirit of the Lord your God will raise a Standard against him says the Lord God Elohim. My children you may see chaos, rage, disorder, rebellion, HOWEVER,  I the Lord am raising a STANDARD in the midst, and with this standard I the Lord am raising the standard of My children during this this time. For the enemy is attempting to shift the narrative attempting to shift in the spirit and carry it out into the natural, in an attempt to bring power and leadership under his control. There are those the enemy is using who are empty shells that have been filled as vessels with his hatred, darkness, rebellion, and lawlessness says the Lord of Hosts this day. The enemy is attempting to bring his interests and key players into agreement for in agreement there is power My children.

Margo H. at MorningStar Stories (16 June 20): Next, I saw the world spinning at light speed. God said, “pick up the pace.” It was spinning so fast that it began to have a ring of lights around it. This brought to mind the reports I had seen just the day before of the luminescent waves in California. God’s light is coming to the earth.

The Elijah List sponsors (19 June 20): Why?

Dr. Alexander Poltorak: Thus we see that without evil there is no free choice, and without free choice there is no good or evil. Evil allows for the exercise of good in the same sense that a ray of light can be seen only in a cloudy sky.[5]

The Elijah List sponsors (19 June 20): Because Prophet Charlie Shamp gets right to the “meat” of many prophecies that the Lord has given him FOR RIGHT NOW, FOR TODAY, including but not limited to: America’s Space Race, Riots, Washington DC, prophecies for Los Angeles and the state of California, and Revival that’s about to hit the USA and the Body of Christ![6]

Jodie Hughes (17 June 20): It doesn’t take a prophet to know that the world is in a season of rapid change. As things shift and change, God is compelling His people to prophesy and decree what He is saying. He wants us to partner with Him to establish on the earth the dreams and plans of Heaven, as we, the Body of Christ on Earth, are called to pioneer change and extend into new territory. We are being invited to walk in something fresh, something brand-new—and it’s time to dream again![7]

Brat (in “Train Tracks” to Pete Garza on 16 June 20): “A picture comes to mind of connecting two lines of railroads.  The apostolic covering over the cave dweller says to the individual that their gift is necessary on the rail tracks and applied in a specific place and time, just as two disparate rail lines are connected to make one (like “the Golden Spike” in California).  That acknowledgment is what Jezebel stole.  If we just go back by the same way we came without acknowledging the individual gift to benefit the greater whole, then we just repeat the cycle and there is no honor.

Kenny Rogers: “The Gambler” [https://youtu.be/7hx4gdlfamo]

Rabbi YY Jacobson (18 June 20): We are looking for something so gigantic, so unprecedented, so mind-boggling, that it will be able to justify all we have been through. A type of redemption that will allow us to finally say, Ah! Now we get it! And until we do not reach that point, let us not delude ourselves that we have achieved our real success; let us not settle for “poker chips.” We want the best and brightest during the last days of exile; but what we really need to fight for is the ultimate revolution, when the entire purpose of creation will be fulfilled, when Divine infinity will fill our entire consciousness and the innate harmony of all existence will come to the fore.

Rabbi Shaul Yosef Leiter: As the physical mezuzah is fixed outside for all passersby to see, the spiritual mezuzah, the consciousness that G‑d is watching us, must be apparent in all of our actions.

Pete Garza (16 June 20): The church has found itself secluded inside a cave. This cave experience has caused many believers to draw closer to the father and others to pull away. God has allowed us to reflect both in our lives and in our spiritual walks to truly see where our hearts lay. He has exposed our weaknesses and revealed our strengths.

Brat in “Train Tracks” to Pete Garza (16 June 20): You and your wife are in Ohio, right?  What if Ohio is one section of track and California is another section of track, but the two tracks are not joined yet.  There is no recognized “golden spike” to connect this Intercontinental (Underground?) Railroad. (Of course, Jesus unites us.  I’m talking about tangible Jude and James-like hands-on intervention).  All the apostles I know of over here (or in my orbit) like the sound of their titles and their own words but have no steam in their engines, like Jesus said would happen in Revelation 2:2. There are all kinds of deeds, hard work, and perseverance, but they come through with no covering and alignment to establish God’s covenantal and governmental order within the five-fold ministry in Spirit and in Truth.

Dr. Rivkah Lambert Adler (17 June 20): Many Christians acknowledge that extensive preparations have been made in their churches and communities to shelter Jews in the event of an uptick in anti-Semitism, but very few are willing to speak openly about them.

Creighton Stevens commented: ???

Brat (18 June 20): Hi Creighton, in an effort to de-escalate the prevailing rage in the atmosphere, may I ask what is confusing about this article?

[RECEIVED SILENCE]

Psalm 69:8 I have become a stranger to my kindred, an alien to my mother’s children.

Rev. Whitney Rice (14 June 20): We most often only think of “Judas the Betrayer,” but here, right in the text, we have “Judas the Evangelist” and “Judas the Healer.”[8]

Brat (in “Train Tracks” to Pete Garza on 16 June 20): I’ve exposed what I could in my blog [https://truthinus.wordpress.com/] but the Churches are experts in suppressing it, stonewalling it, or gaslighting it (all of Jezebel’s tactics, and all done in the name of “divine exploits”).  However, that only proves to me that what I’m saying must be working in Spirit and in Truth somehow, but there is never any closure.  It’s all a chess game to the Great They.  I need a Giant killer positioned beside me and my friends.

Margo H. at MorningStar Stories (16 June 20): Sink into the Divine

Rev. Whitney Rice (14 June 20): The truth, as it so often does, lies in the messy and uncomfortable middle.

Amanda Grace (16 June 20): My children, bring your eyes your ears your souls and your lives back to Me fully, return unto Me and I shall return unto you. The enemy wants you to look away from Me right now. The enemy wants to get you entangled in a brambled mess of vices, bad habits, spiritual clutter by mixing rituals and religion into My Word and into your walks with Me. It is time to declutter for My children MUST be able to clearly hear Me in this hour for I will be giving instructions and My children MUST be able to hear it. I will be positioning, ordering your steps, and speaking into you the truth of My Word that you need in this hour we are in. You will see much transpire in this hour, watch and pray, be vigilant My children for the enemy is determined right now to shut down any power and authority My children have in the United States and around the World. The enemy is determined to break the agreement of My children through the Church. Yes, through the Church! For if the enemy can bring the temperature more and more to lukewarm the church poses no threat for the power has departed. Ichabod will be written upon the doors of those churches who have brought masses of people to lukewarm, where there is no power, superficial faith, and little effort put into serving Me says the Lord this day.

Nate Johnston (15 June 20): I prophesy that this will not be a week of being BAITED & HIJACKED by the enemy into the DIVERSION he wants you to obsess and lose your peace over. He wants you hearing every bump in the night and putting your fists up for every fight. He wants you so empty that you make messes he will tell you are impossible to clean up then beat you up for it.

Brat (in “Train Tracks” to Pete Garza on 16 June 20): Since the mainline Church does not acknowledge apostles or prophets, then huge chunks of the five-fold ministry are dead on empty tracks.  No amount of prayer, fasting, lamenting and quoting 2 Chronicles (as they repeatedly do) will rectify neglect of significant segments of God’s tribe.”

Anna Blake (19 June 20): “Excess of grief for the dead is madness; for it is an injury to the living, and the dead know it not.” – Xenophon[9]

Foursquare Church (14 June 20): Without lament we often end up with a superficial faith and a stunted compassion, presenting a shallow faith to a hurting world that doesn’t want easy answers.

Psalm 69:9 It is zeal for Your house that has consumed me; the insults of those who insult You have fallen on me.

Rev. Whitney Rice (14 June 20): How many times a day, how many times an hour, do we betray and deny Jesus by betraying and denying his presence in our neighbors?

Amanda Grace (16 June 20): However, my children, the enemy’s nature is to counterfeit. If He can clutter your spirit with vices, rebellion, excuses and rituals such as the Pharisees chained the people to, then the enemy can bring forth a counterfeit and make it look like God on the surface says the Lord. And if your spirit is so cluttered, well the enemy can easily make himself sound like Me the Lord your God Elohim. The enemy can get you into agreement with counterfeit ideas, people, positions and in this hour, he is fiercely attempting to do exactly this says the Lord. Pray My children to expose the counterfeit, pray for the Lord your God to be the two edged sword penetrating to the dividing line in your lives, to draw a clear plumb line of what is of the Lord and what the enemy has counterfeited. We are at a very crucial point and he would love nothing more than to hook you to a counterfeit to destroy the plans I have for you says the Lord of Hosts this day.

Psalm 69:10 When I humbled my soul with fasting, they insulted me for doing so.

Foursquare Church (14 June 20): Self-pity is just about me—my pain, and my problems. Lament opens us up, connecting us to the larger story that God is writing.

Nate Johnston (18 June 20): What you are seeing right now is momentary scenery and will suddenly change its direction and move at a high velocity into direct opposition to the circumstance you once faced.

When Light Came In (16 June 20): When we’re busy, lonely, scared or run down, we can forget this truth.

Nate Johnston (15 June 20): This week there is a shift coming to those who have felt the wool pulled over their eyes and poison in their stomachs. I heard the Lord say “FORTIFY YOURSELF! Strengthen yourself, and RUN into your place of safety and peace, and I will clear the road ahead of you!”

Amanda Grace (16 June 20): You shall see engineered rebellion, and those who protest, those who are spoon feed poison to speak into the younger generations, There shall be a righteous anger as I allow people to witness this interconnected web, people shall return unto Me and that righteous anger shall build and will fracture the lawlessness they are attempting to stir up in order to try and seize the law and manipulate and dominate it for their wicked purposes says the Lord of Hosts this day.

Rabbi YY Jacobson (18 June 20): To the third group who wished to create new versions of Judaism to make it more appealing to the young modern Jew, the Rebbe’s message was moving. Your intentions may be noble, but you lack both belief in the integrity of our youth and in the power of our Torah. You want to inspire the youth? Don’t give them a watered-down Judaism. Give them the full truth. They want to be challenged, and are capable of real devotion and growth. Don’t underestimate their potential, nor should you underestimate the eternal relevance of a manual written by the Creator of mankind.

When Light Came In (16 June 20): I may be shaky, I may be quieter than her, but I borrow and stand in her strength until I reconnect with my own. As I do what she would do, my body remembers. It feels like riding a bike or breathing deep after a dive into the pool. It’s becoming an instinct, this healing.

Rev. Whitney Rice (14 June 20): If they are willing to be vulnerable enough to channel God’s grace, we have to be vulnerable enough to risk receiving it and also risk getting hurt again.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (19 June 20): “Truly, Hashem is waiting to show you grace, Truly, He will arise to pardon you. For Hashem is a God of justice; Happy are all who wait for Him.” Isaiah 30:18 (The Israel Bible™)

Psalm 69:11 When I made sackcloth my clothing, I became a byword to them.

Rev. Whitney Rice (14 June 20): But because we’re so in love with our either/or thinking, we are always casting ourselves as the villain or the hero.

Foursquare Church (14 June 20): Motivating people through condemning guilt rather than through the convicting work of the Spirit, doesn’t change anything. It typically leads to more division, more bitterness and more resentment on every side.

Psalm 69:12 I am the subject of gossip for those who sit in the gate, and the drunkards make songs about me.

Amanda Grace (16 June 20): The gate is closing on gates. My power will be made manifest stronger and more fierce than ever before says the Lord of Hosts this day. For the enemy shall not derail My plans, and just when he thinks he is causing rebellion, fear, and lawlessness to rise enough to seize power, one blow from My mighty right hand shall bring it crashing down says the Lord of Hosts this day the Righteous Judge. I am the Righteous Judge and I shall righteously judge those who have given themselves over to the enemy.

John Veal (12 June 20): Just as worldwide rebellion is breaking out, so is worldwide revival! Before godly revival, there is often some type of war. That’s what we’re experiencing at the present moment. I sense an imminent, divine reversal in this current tide of war. The fire that the Lord placed inside you is being reignited, even as you are reading this! I heard “New Power Generation” in the spirit (and I’m not referring to a secular music group).[10]

Psalm 69:13 But as for me, my prayer is to you, O LORD. At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love, answer me. With your faithful help

Brad Parscale: If not NOW, then when?

When Light Came In (16 June 20): You do not owe them an explanation, no matter how insistently or loudly they say you do.  Reasonable people don’t demand explanations.  They respect boundaries.

Rev. Whitney Rice (14 June 20): That means we have to be willing to see them as more than their mistakes, as deeper than their sins, as having potential outside and beyond whatever they did to hurt us.

Foursquare Church (14 June 20): Lament says, “I hurt, but I see that you are hurting also.”

Amanda Grace (16 June 20): My children, focus on Me right now, get your eyes off of the news, listen for your Father in Heaven more than you listen to the news for it is skewed it is fallible it is used to speak as the serpent. As the serpent spoke to eve and lulled her into agreement with mangled narratives so the media is doing the same attempting to hypnotically fixate you, oh yes there is a hypnotic spirit attached to that media machine, upon their narratives, their instruction, their timing. The enemy utilizes it to clutter the spirit and the soul, to confuse and oppress and bring upon you a spirit of hopelessness so you give up your walk in truth says the Lord this day.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (19 June 20): “We, therefore, warn all the aforementioned people, collectively and individually, to acknowledge within ten days of receiving this notification through any international advertising media, social networking Twitter, email, or letter of their policy. If they fail to do so, they are likely to be named as representatives or named for personal responsibility in this judgment.

Nate Johnston (15 June 20): DISCERN NOW.. GET YOUR OIL FULL NOW! You can’t keep absorbing the media and the tension in the atmosphere and expect to RESPOND by the Spirit of God.

When Light Came In (16 June 20): The adrenaline floods in. We begin to lose our internal balance. These are moments all our work on healing and breaking free may feel wobbly. Can we *really* choose our response? Can we *really* set a limit? Can we *really* trust deep down that we owe them zero — not our energy, not our time, not our logic or explanations?

Rev. Whitney Rice (14 June 20): That means trusting the Judases in our lives to bring us healing if and when they are able to respond to God’s call in their hearts.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (19 June 20): If the Defendants do not respond individually to the allegations made in them, a tribunal will be established to stand in judgment.

Rabbi S. Y. Zevin: Replied his father: “In the episode of Korach, first we read, ‘Why, then, do you raise yourselves up over the people of G‑d’; then we read, ‘And Moses heard, and he fell on his face.’ Only later did Moses have his answer – that in the morning G‑d would make the matter clear. The same question could be asked there. Why did Moses first fall on his face, before giving his answer?

Psalm 69:14 rescue me from sinking in the mire; let me be delivered from my enemies and from the deep waters.

Amanda Grace (16 June 20): Come unto Me all who are heavy laden, and I shall give you rest. It is in My presence My children that there is true rest. Amidst the chaos, lawlessness, and disorder of the world, I am far above. My peace surpasses ALL understanding.  I am a God of order, of Righteous Law and Order says the Lord of Hosts. Evil is attempting to swell and crest as a wave swells and crests right before it crashed down.

Rabbi YY Jacobson (18 June 20): We need and yearn for the ultimate redemption! It is Moshiach that we want, and want him now. It is the revolution that will transform the world and bring the Divine presence into our cosmos that we yearn for; an era when the “earth will be filled with Divine awareness like the waters covers the sea.”

Psalm 69:15 Do not let the flood sweep over me, or the deep swallow me up, or the Pit close its mouth over me.

Dr. Rivkah Lambert Adler (17 June 20): “Prophetically we have learned some of God’s plans and what is coming. There is much strategic prayer. We expect Nazi-type resistance from the government down, so most [people involved] maintain low profiles about specifics.

When Light Came In (16 June 20): More and more as I face these moments, I can talk myself through them, remind myself that I owe nothing. But sometimes I don’t feel especially strong and I need to bring in the voice of a friend. To me, this brings balance to the moment: Toxic person says X, safe person would say Y.

Brat (in “Train Tracks” to Pete Garza on 16 June 20): For example, my friend Sophia Buller tries bridging the prophetic gap between the Baptists and the Evangelicals and the Vineyard-types.  Some of them believe in the prophetic but don’t teach the whole Word.  They pick and choose scriptures to build their cases.  The end result is that their message ends up sounding like New Agers and “Name-it-and-claim-it” theology.  Others expound on entire chapters of scripture and teach beautiful sermons, but don’t believe in the prophetic, so the Word is not fulfilled, and endurance becomes drudgery to the point of slavery.  Even though Sophia steps into the gap with solid Truth grounded in the Word and prayer, and social media friends and I can see her calling at work, there are no apostles stepping up to acknowledge that she has those gifts of bridge-building and encouragement (tempered with sternness when necessary).  And she’s made connections with an apostle over here in Ventura, CA but he’s quiet.

Amanda Grace (16 June 20): You are soldiers of the living God and discipline is necessary right now for where My children, the direction I am leading them in. Those who lack discipline shall be chastised to bring them into the discipline in their walk with Me that they so desperately need. The Lord chastises those He loves, remember that My children. I am your Father in Heaven and I the Lord must rear you up to go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature, and to be put in positions around the world, influential positions, that shall move forward and advance for the Kingdom My plans and My purposes.

Rev. Whitney Rice (14 June 20): It’s not heroes who do most of God’s work in the world.

Dr. Rivkah Lambert Adler (17 June 20): “There is a network,” she explained, which includes what she called “hubs” covering certain geographic regions. “Wherever God has placed you, you know your hub,” Kent asserted.

Brat in “Train Tracks” to Pete Garza (16 June 20): That’s not a snub against this apostle; it’s just that there’s nowhere to go with our gifts other than to wait on God to bring in someone who can recognize the gifts as the gifts they are, and to launch or christen the vessel.  That, then, ties back into the train metaphor.  The train hub is useful once the tracks are all connected.  I don’t have the connections, but the apostles do.  That’s their gift.  Sophia speaks the word like Aaron did for Moses.  I see how they could connect, but don’t have the network or skills to implement it.  I’m the scribe to show the parts, not build the train.

[RECEIVED SILENCE]

Charisma (19 June 20): Your Calling A New Door to Creative Ministry Education

Rabbi Shaul Yosef Leiter: Similarly, one of the Rebbe’s key messages to us is that “action is the main thing!” Passivity, in Judaism, is the antithesis of our purpose. Let us examine and affix our personal spiritual mezuzahs, reminding ourselves to actively fulfill more Torah and mitzvot.

Psalm 69:16 Answer me, O LORD, for your steadfast love is good; according to your abundant mercy, turn to me.

Rabbi Yehudah Aryeh Leib Alter: Korach accused Moses of arrogantly usurping power for himself and Aaron over the Jewish nation. We already know that Moses was the most humble man to ever walk the face of the earth. (Num. 12:3)

Lance Wallnau (15 June 20): Hebrew prophets tell us with certainty that before the Lord returns there will be a great shaking of nations.

Psalm 69:17 Do not hide your face from your servant, for I am in distress–make haste to answer me.

When Light Came In (16 June 20): Our guard may be down when an attack comes from left field or a strong personality confronts us.

Lance Wallnau: WHERE ARE THE VOICES?

Foursquare Church (14 June 20): When we lament, we leave behind a small story with a small, manageable god.

Rabbi YY Jacobson (18 June 20): You want to become universal and part of the larger society? You want to get out of your cocoon and have a real impact on the larger human conversation? The more you will be etched in your distinct Jewishness, the deeper and broader your impact will reach, the Rebbe taught. It’s like with love: the more you love your family, the more you can love other people outside of your family. Or like the shofar: if you blow from the narrow side, your voice will resonate far and wide. If you blow from the broadside, no voice will be heard. If you forfeit your identity for the sake of a universal identity, no voice will emerge.

Nate Johnston (12 June 20): There will be OUT-OF-THE-BOX ways that God brings breakthrough to you in this season. It will be a left of field counter-move from heaven that will outsmart the enemy and bring SWIFT deliverance to your situation. “There was no way in the natural I could break free from that?” many will say. “I was trapped and cornered!” Yet the Lord is coming to set you free from every enslaving spirit and intimidator at your doorstep.

Psalm 69:18 Draw near to me, redeem me, set me free because of my enemies.

Rev. Whitney Rice (14 June 20): When we are feeling at our least capable, our most poverty-stricken in spirit, Jesus can and will send us out to be healers on his behalf, possibly even to the people we ourselves have betrayed.

When Light Came In (16 June 20): I imagine what my bravest, boldest friend would do in that moment… and I do that.

Rabbi S. Y. Zevin: “And a similar thing happened here today.”

Rabbi YY Jacobson (18 June 20): And the Rebbe responded: “The American youth can’t be told to do anything; they can be explained to do everything.”

Amanda Grace (16 June 20): The people of this country are restless. I am allowing the pressure to birth forth vision, to bring people into focus to expose the agendas of the enemy to make a clear choice for those lost in confusion. You will see miraculous jaw dropping events occur to suddenly turn the narrative, to scatter the enemy’s gangs, mules, and soldiers. As furious as they arise, they shall fall a double portion of that rage, and some of these rebellions will be supernaturally put down and fall faster than they ever arose says the Lord of Hosts this day

Pete Garza (17 June 20):  Even what looks like a nation in great division and disunity trust and know that we serve a God who is on the throne. Heavens justice shall prevail and healing will rest on our nation. Prepare to receive the outpouring double blessings and favor of the Lord. DOUBLE FRUIT, DOUBLE GLORY, DOUBLE BLESSING and DOUBLE FAVOR ! The Double Double!! Healing & Blessing is our portion this season!

Rabbi YY Jacobson (18 June 20): And then he heard the Lubavitcher Rebbe say on the screen (it is actually something the Rebbe would say frequently), “We were promised that G-d will gather every Jew, one by one, taking each of them by his or her hand, and bring them to the ultimate redemption. No Jew will be forsaken, no Jew will be left behind. When Moshiach comes, G-d will gather every Jew from wherever they are, no matter their level of observance. No Jew will be lost to our people.”

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (19 June 20): “Making a claim against the borders of Israel and any attempt to divide it is a hate crime, a crime against the Creator and against his creation, a crime against humanity and against the people of Israel.

Amanda Grace (16 June 20): Yes those who truly walk in the power of Almighty God are RISING STRONGER IN spirit than ever before and they shall because of Me, their voices shall reach further, shall pierce into the darkness and yes there are those who will be delivered from the kingdom of darkness in this hour. Those who truly walk in power and authority, there is a shift happening and, in this hour, they shall be elevated and lifted up for My Glory, you are entering a new chapter for My Glory.

Spiritual Herding 14 June 20

14 Jun

Sunday, June 14, 2020

[9 pages of dialogue]

Jamie Rohrbaugh: Don’t try to spiritualize all the promises of God. Sometimes He really is talking about physical stuff!

Calvary Nexus (14 June 20): One of the great existential challenges to faith is the paradox of why the ungodly seem to thrive and, God allows His people to suffer. God reminds His people that they only suffer for a relatively brief time and then enjoy eternity with Him in Paradise. On the other hand, God will ultimately deal with the wicked and bring righteous judgment. The reality that God is righteous and just, and the wicked are punished should comfort us. We don’t take pleasure that the wicked will suffer, but rejoice that God is just, and righteousness will be restored. The reality of God’s coming judgment should also motivate us to live on mission.

Ben Peters (14 June 20): Even today, we have observed that most people, who are being powerfully used by God, have experienced times of extreme suffering, where they had to die to their own desires and ambitions and embrace the cross that they had been called to bear.[1]

Brat (in “Treasured Possession” 12 June 20): And I still have no sanctuary.  And the leaders refuse to write me back.

When Light Came In (14 June 20): It’s not talking about what remains in our rebuilding and recovery, in our growth and healing.

Matthew 9:35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every sickness.

Jonathan Bernis (12 June 20): I am focusing us on wisdom because with all that is going on in our world today, wisdom is something we can all use more of, don’t you agree?

Kris Vallotton (12 June 20): Have you ever thought through the fact that unity has more of a relationship with disagreement than it does agreement?[2]

Anna Blake (12 June 20): Back when I still thought I was a big dog person, I swore I’d never own a terrier. I just thought I was better suited to herding dogs. I’m not picking favorites; just saying they mirrored my idiosyncrasies and dysfunctions well. Perhaps I was being a bit over-controlling. Or maybe if you have dogs long enough, a terrier is inevitable. Lucky that didn’t happen here. Jack, on the right, managed to pass himself off to the rescue as a corgi-mix.[3]

Rabbi YY Jacobson (11 June 20): The Actor & the Jew

The story is told of an opera singer who was known for his readings and recitations from the Classics. He always ended his performance with a dramatic recital of Psalm 23. Each night, without exception, as the actor began his recitation—”The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want“—the crowd would listen attentively and then rise with thunderous applause, in appreciation of the actor’s ability to bring the psalm to life.

One night, just before the singer and actor was to offer his customary recital of Psalm 23, an old Jew from the audience spoke up. “Sir, would you mind, if tonight, I recite Psalm 23?”

The actor was surprised by this unusual request. Yet he invited the old Jew to come onto the stage to recite the psalm; curious to see the how the ability of this Jew weighed against his own talent.

Softly the old man began to recite the words of the psalm. His voice was parched and weak, and his tune lousy.

“The Lord is my shepherd: I shall not want…

“Though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff-they will comfort me…

“Only goodness and kindness shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the House of the Lord for many long years.”

When he was finished, there was no applause. There was no standing ovation as on other nights. All that could be heard was the sound of weeping. The audience had been so moved by the man’s recitation that every eye was tearful.

Amazed by what he had experienced, the opera star queried, “I don’t understand. I have been performing Psalm 23 for years. I have a lifetime of experience and training — but I have never been able to move an audience as you have tonight. And frankly, you have a horrible voice and can barely carry a tune. Tell me, what is your secret?”

The Jew humbly replied, “Well sir, you know the Psalm…but I know the Shepherd.”[4]

Matthew 9:36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

Jamie Rohrbaugh: So, land inheritances. Inheritances are things that you receive by virtue of either your bloodline OR your relationship with another person.

Anna Blake (12 June 20): Preacher Man, on the left, has never missed a staff meeting once in the six and a half years he’s been here. You have to respect his commitment if not his level of consciousness. We have these meetings several times a day. Despite the long work hours, he was not promoted for merit. Attrition played a part. And he isn’t sleeping; just resting his eyes. Some of you who have known Preach for a while and are impressed that I’ve managed a photo when he isn’t yodeling his staccato bark, yipping and yapping the high lonesome notes, his shrieks ricocheting off the walls, audible in a thousand-mile radius. Preacher feels vindicated because I used to get lost all the time, often gone for weeks at a time, coming home smelling of strange horses and airport bars. But these last weeks of stay-at-home pandemic lockdown, he hasn’t let me out of his sight once. It’s a herding dog’s dream come true.

Matthew 9:37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few;

Jonathan Bernis (12 June 20): Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made it clear that he wants to move forward with West Bank annexation plans as early as July 1. These plans would affirm Israel’s sovereignty over 30 percent of the West Bank, including all settlements and the Jordan Valley.

Kris Vallotton (12 June 20): That can be hard to grasp because the culture we live in has formed its value system based on agreement. In other words, in today’s culture, people tend to connect their value to how much they’re agreed with; they gather on agreement and divide in disagreement.

Jamie Rohrbaugh: And in this case, Jesus is the Benefactor. Jesus died, so now we can read His will. Yes, He’s alive again because He didn’t stay dead; He rose again on the third day. However, His death was still the triggering event that made it possible to for His will to be carried out.

Anna Blake (12 June 20): Preacher Man would be sounding the alarm now if he knew Jack was looking at me. Preach is the jealous type, so this counts as a very intimate moment for me and Jack. We’re cheating. That’s why his ears are folded up, but he isn’t air-licking yet, so we have another five seconds to gaze into each other’s eyes before he explodes, bouncing up and down in the air, and scaring Preacher into a panic-bark fit.  I sit back, not quite smiling, not exactly comfortable, but knowing it’ll be worse in a minute. Understanding calming signals means you can see the meltdown coming, like cows flying in a tornado. Don’t even try to outrun it.

Matthew 9:38 therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

Elizabeth Tiam-Fook (13 June 20): What assignments have we missed out on because the enemy and our internal warfare have kept us prophets from becoming one with each other? There always seems to be weird warfare, especially a covenant-breaking spirit, that comes against prophets from gathering together and loving each other well. But it is crucial we come together as a company of prophets.

Jamie Rohrbaugh: So how does receiving land inheritances work? How can you pray for land inheritances?

Matthew 10:1 Then Jesus summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to cure every disease and every sickness.

Kris Vallotton (12 June 20): Consider this, no demon in hell or better yet, no disagreement on earth can separate us from the love of God.

Jennifer Eivaz on Facebook (11 June 20): The gift of discerning of spirits allows us to see what is in the dark so we don’t stay in the dark.

Matthew 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Go nowhere among the Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans,

Jonathan Bernis (12 June 20): I say “affirm” because while the U.N. ignores it, historically and legally Israel already maintains sovereignty over all the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. This was first recognized in the 1921 League of Nations’ Mandate for Palestine; adopted under Article 80 of the U.N. Charter; and no agreement since has altered it.

Kris Vallotton (12 June 20): Understand, in complete disagreement with the depravity found in the world, God moved towards us, not away from us. Did you catch that? Motivated by love, God moves forward in the trying times of unrepented injustice and utter disagreement. He doesn’t retreat. He never withholds.

Matthew 10:6 but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Jonathan Bernis (12 June 20): Still, it seems unlikely the U.S. administration will approve this move by the July 1 date, a source told The Times of Israel last week.

Kris Vallotton (12 June 20): Right now there is a temptation to ease the tension brought on by these trying times of strong disagreement but I’ll reiterate God’s driving desire for reconciliation in spite of disagreement has never been conformity.

Jonathan Bernis (12 June 20): It could take weeks or even several months before the joint U.S.-Israel mapping committee concludes its work. The White House has declared this a precondition that must be met before any go-ahead would be given for annexation. Already, significant delays have happened because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Wanda Alger (14 June 20): When someone is gifted as a pioneer in the marketplace, the ability to envision, create, and build something never leaves. Regardless of the changes in the market or unseen closures, that gift is still at work, finding new ways to meet a need, bless a community, or serve a greater good. This is what will create new momentum in the days ahead as the Lord plants new seeds within the hearts of His entrepreneurs around the nation. Not only will He birth new opportunities within those who were robbed of their inheritance, but these new seeds will carry a double portion of provision and impact.[5]

When Light Came In (14 June 20): As a survivor, hearing “you are enough” can feel like BS. We’ve had someone who said they cared about us show us moment by moment that we were not enough to listen to, to respect, to value. We don’t see our lives as what we had hoped, and we often have long and painful healing work to get to wholeness and peace. If we left an abusive spouse, we may have years of building back our careers, finances, faith and community connections.

Jamie Rohrbaugh: Whatever kind of land you want, I can tell you this: I don’t believe in “name-it-claim-it” theology, in which some people believe you can just say something and boom, you’ll have it.

Matthew 10:7 As you go, proclaim the good news, ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’

Kris Vallotton (12 June 20): By modern-day standards, disagreement is now synonymous with disloyalty. My point is this—if disagreement equates to being devalued, then conformity becomes the idealistic picture that’s projected onto unity. But, within the Kingdom of God, unity has nothing to do with conformity.

Jamie Rohrbaugh: He kept it always, and is still keeping it; for it was a “forever” covenant. He did in fact bring Abraham into that land, and it has belonged to Abraham’s descendants from that time until now. It still does belong to the Jewish people.

Matthew 10:8 Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. You received without payment; give without payment.

Jamie Rohrbaugh: We know this because God has always given land to His people.

Jonathan Bernis (12 June 20): July 1 is the earliest date the coalition agreement signed by Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz’s Blue and White party allows the Prime Minister to bring the issue to a vote in either the cabinet or the Knesset, Israel’s parliament.

Matthew 10:9 Take no gold, or silver, or copper in your belts,

Steve Shultz: In fact, I’ve heard that this time has caused many to “think in a new way” and that includes “prospering” in a new way.

Jonathan Bernis (12 June 20): According to the coalition deal, the West Bank annexation plan can only move forward in full coordination with the White House.

Jamie Rohrbaugh: Nevertheless, it IS His will to physically give you land of your own to inhabit while you are living on the earth. How do we know this?

Rabbi Shaul Leiter: “Allow me to explain,” said the Rebbe. “Trust is not simply a higher form of faith. It’s something quite different.

Kris Vallotton (12 June 20): In times of strong disagreement, amid seasons of division and disturbing unrest, there is a temptation to ease that tension by any means necessary. Some may conform to the collective consensus while others attempt to convince everyone why they are right, but how many of you know, there are seasons, much like the one we are in now, when it’s not about conformity, rather it’s about humility. It’s about drawing near to the One whom we place our trust. It’s about seeing the One in one another amid our disagreements. Maybe right now, all you need to know is that you can trust God, and all you need to do is love people regardless of how right or wrong they are.

Matthew 10:10 no bag for your journey, or two tunics, or sandals, or a staff; for laborers deserve their food.

Kris Vallotton (12 June 20): The imagery of the Pharisees standing in condemnation of sin, divided from those they disagreed with while Jesus did the opposite and sat at the table with them, is a powerful statement to us all. You may recall the Pharisees questioning Jesus about why He ate with tax collectors and sinners (Mark 2:16). Jesus’ response to them was this, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Understand, Jesus only did what He saw His Father doing (John 5:19). So, what was really going on? Why was Jesus breaking bread with those whose sin He disagreed with? I believe that Jesus was revealing glimpses of the New Covenant that He would ultimately establish through the cross. He was demonstrating how things worked inside the Kingdom of God.

Steve Shultz: It’s so good to see generations uniting and coming together.

Matthew 10:11 Whatever town or village you enter, find out who in it is worthy, and stay there until you leave.

Kris Vallotton (12 June 20): Let me be clear—Jesus did not conform to sinners so that He could relate and ultimately convince them with His Truth. His compassion with the woman at the well whom He told to “go and sin no more” (John 8:11) proves that. Jesus, the spotless lamb of God, didn’t agree with sin in hopes to convince, rather He listened to the heart and revealed who the sinner truly was—God’s child.

Steve Shultz: It’s important to hear from them and pour into them at the same time.

Matthew 10:12 As you enter the house, greet it.

Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein (in “I Will Pay My Vows” 10 June 20): “Hello! Everybody!”

Elizabeth Tiam-Fook (13 June 20): Generations running together in heart and purpose is extremely important to the Lord and to me. In our ministry, we have different streams and generations of the prophetic who are part of our leadership team. We are modeling the restoration of the company of prophets. But there will be attacks in the areas of our lives God has called us to serve and build.[6]

Lance Wallnau (12 June 20): In all of this, we should consider the following: Who is feeding the anarchy? Who are the voices that bring reason, calm, and perspective back into this situation? Could it be that God is using this moment to shake us up to wake us up? When the first-century church experienced disunity, the Apostle Paul wrote: For there must, in fact, be divisions among you, so that those of you who are approved may be evident” 2 Corinthians 11:9 NIRV

Matthew 10:13 If the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you.

Ruth to Eliven blog: I am holding back tears after reading this. Spoke straight to my heart. I am artistic, write and do stone sculpting outside of my full time admin job (need to pay the bills). What’s interesting are my writings and pieces have turned out to be prophetic, my very life has been quite a parallel to what has been happening in my nation and it has not been easy. All of my pieces have precedented national events and yet I sculpt from prayer times. Its like God whispers to me what to sculpt and once I get done, things move that fit into the stone piece. My last piece was one of a woman giving birth for I felt God is sending out deliverance to individuals and nations, delivering His people from empty religion to the true gospel and here we are, the whole world at a standstill…waiting for something new to be born in us. I need prayers, i get overwhelmed lots because the journey has been quite lonely…to say I am misunderstood is an understatement…I recently moved to a new place (following what I believed was God’s instruction), not sure what He has in store in this place, need to continue putting my trust in Him. Pray for me and with me as Holy Spirit leads. God Bless you Helen and family

Kris Vallotton (12 June 20): My prayer for you this week is that you surrender to the One you can wholeheartedly trust amid the minutia of moments that fill our day; when you’re watching the news, out in your community, or talking with your family and friends. This week, I encourage you if any angst, anxiety, or amid any disagreement emerges, simply sink back into the One from whom your strength truly comes from.

Matthew 10:14 If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet as you leave that house or town.

Lara Trump (11 June 20): There might have been a mistake

Brat: No there wasn’t.

Donna Schaper (13 June 20): I often feel like I live in Poe’s 1844 short story, “The Purloined Letter.” The letter is hidden in plain sight on the table, but the detectives don’t see it. I, like them, am eschatologically challenged.

Matthew 10:15 Truly I tell you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.

Anna Blake (12 June 20): You could start to wonder, dare I say it, if maybe you’re spending a little too much time with your dogs? Or maybe you’re just lonely for something beyond your mailbox? Clinics and events are canceled; it’s time to try something new. The Barn School will offer a new range of courses on July 1st, open to the public. Dogs allowed.

And I know this for a fact. Your dog won’t care.

Matthew 10:16 “See, I am sending you out like sheep into the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.

Lara Trump (11 June 20): He asked me to reach out to you because he REALLY wants to meet you, Kathryn, and he can’t imagine having anyone else there with him.

Matthew 10:17 Beware of them, for they will hand you over to councils and flog you in their synagogues;

Fiery Classes by Rabbi YY [Jacobson] for this Week (13 June 20): The Flax, the Window and the Rope: The Story of Rachav

All the World’s a Play of Three Scenes

Watch online

Brat: All you can do is Arc Speak to my last piece which included Rahab?  It doesn’t take great powers of discernment to see that you read me.  Were those “Fiery Classes” meant to bring down judgement on New York?  She’s already been through hell.  There is no evidence of approval in this.  Lance Wallnau had quoted St. Paul where he said that there must be divisions, so that those who are approved may be evident.

When Light Came In (14 June 20): But that’s not what “you are enough” is talking about.

Kaji Douša (in “Treasured Possession” 12 June 20): As a little one, close to the ground, I fished hungrily through the leaves. But after a while, I grew weary, and at some point I switched from plucking to collecting. Sitting in the center of the row, arms out, I’d await everyone else’s deposits to my basket, with the thrill of wonder to see what they would share.

Brat: And Rahab hid the spies on her roof under stalks of flax.  Just marveling at the juxtapositions.

Lara Trump (11 June 20): The President saw the list of Patriots who have already entered and he noticed that your name was MISSING.

Brat: Thank you for noticing.

Rabbi Shaul Leiter: What exactly was the terrible sin of the spies to receive such a harsh punishment? At first glance, isn’t this what they were sent for, to scout out the situation and report back?

Donald J. Trump (12 June 20): Does this email work?

Brat: Usually.  Does yours?

Matthew 10:18 and you will be dragged before governors and kings because of Me, as a testimony to them and the Gentiles.

Brat: Just a minute.  What he did was not welcoming; it was poking. I keep sharing and sharing every day and no one comes back to me to directly engage with me.

Anna Blake (12 June 20): On the top of the list of things my dogs don’t care about: Anything that happens past the mailbox.

When Light Came In (14 June 20): In short, as survivors, especially in the first years, our lives feel like the opposite of enough. In our beaten down, systematically dehumanized and disempowered hearts, we know we’re not who we want to be yet. We want to be safe. We want to *feel* safe. We want to be understood. We want to feel confident. We want to like our own bodies. We want to be able to believe in hope and God and people again.

Elizabeth Tiam-Fook (13 June 20): Giving Honor

When Light Came In (14 June 20): It’s talking about us as humans, sitting here reading this right now. It’s saying we have intrinsic worth *now*. It’s saying we, in our brokenness, confusion, or even despair, are worth it *now.* It’s saying we get to be here in this life *right now.* That we matter *right now,* which frees us to put our energy into something other than proving we deserve to take up space in the world.

Dreamer to Eliven blog: …God spoke to me about this particular passage In Isaiah 49 maybe 10 years ago & told me He was going to hide me in His quiver, but when the time was right He would bring me out and use me for His glory. (I believe He did this & whilst I might be back in the quiver again, I know His timing is perfect and He will perfect that which concerns me.). I shared it with a young woman earlier this year, as I felt it was relevant to her situation. Her voice has been silenced, and she has been broken hearted in church and is now completely hidden, but I believe God’s anointing is on her & He will use her powerfully in the days ahead.

Wanda Alger (14 June 20): Ultimately, anything that is born of the Kingdom can’t be stopped, shut down, or destroyed. It simply regroups and finds new ways to manifest the never-ending abundance of the King.

Jamie Rohrbaugh: Now, thanks to Jesus’ own blood sacrifice that paved the way for Heaven to invade earth, Father God is handing out His property to the people named in His will. And according to God’s written Will, the Bible, the people named in the will are you and me.

Matthew 10:19 When they hand you over, do not worry about how you are to speak or what you are to say; for what you are to say will be given to you at that time;

Kris Vallotton (12 June 20): I’d like to suggest to you that Jesus gives you permission to love people you disagree with. In other words, you don’t have to conform to their way of thinking or convince them to think like you in order to love and value them. The beauty discovered in choosing a relationship amid disagreement is that you don’t have to conform to me nor do I have to conform to you in order for us to both have value and deserve love. Romans 12 makes this distinction by pointing out that Believers are “individually members of one another”. Understand, unity is not conformity. In fact, within the Kingdom of God, unity is the celebration of diversity. I propose it will be impossible to experience unity with one another if our value system is based on an agreement and not on the reality that we are distinctly unique children of God.

Brat: And all I’ve been asking for is a pen pal?

When Light Came In (14 June 20): “You are enough” is not about us having arrived. It’s not that we can stop growing, healing, learning. It’s about acceptance of ourselves in this moment, which frees us to choose where we go from here.

Matthew 10:20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

Israel365 (12 June 20): In those days there was no king in Yisrael; every man did as he pleased. ~Judges 17:6 (The Israel Bible™)

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): The prophets warn that the Nations will attempt to divide the Land of Israel and that this will be the means for the downfall

Frank Bravowoodlands Bravo on Facebook (12 June 20): Think about it… It was wrong for Israel to look to other nations for military help. They were trusting in human beings instead of God. Israel sought protection from those who had far less power than God. Both Egypt and Israel would fall as a result of their arrogance. They were serving their own interests instead of God’s, and thus they did not even consult Him. They had violated God’s law on how to govern the nation. They did not want to pay the price for looking to God and repenting of their sinful ways. When we have problems, it is good to seek help, but we must never bypass God or His previous directions for us. O the folly of not trusting God! Amen!

Israel365 (12 June 20): Sefer Shoftim repeatedly teaches that the lack of a king, enabling everyone to do whatever was right in their eyes, is the preeminent problem of this era. According to the Bible, the king should not be responsible only for the legal, military and economic affairs of the nation. He should also be responsible for ensuring that the society is moral and follows Hashem’s Torah. It has never been more clear how desperately we need as a society to have a moral guide to keep us on the proper track. By following a common set of guidelines, we can prevent and handle any dilemma that society faces. Having a righteous king in Yerushalayim will be part of the complete redemption.

Lana Vawser (11 June 20): There is divine strategy and blueprints God is releasing that are very specific in the call to MOBILISE that He has spoken to you about and in the implementing of the divine strategies and blueprints He is releasing, a MOVEMENT will begin that is going to impact NATIONS and the earth. Nations will come to you (Isaiah 60)[1]

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): “I will gather all the nations And bring them down to the Valley of Yehoshafat. There I will contend with them Over My very own people, Yisrael, Which they scattered among the nations. For they divided My land among themselves” ~Joel 4:2 (The Israel Bible™)

Kaji Douša: (12 June 20): Crouched over the vines, we looked for red. Scanning rows of strawberries, the lesson was not to pick too soon. There’s a moment in the ripeness of fresh fruit, and at the right time, we do well to pluck.

Helen Calder (5 June 20): The distinction of a prophetic story or parable, is that it is God-breathed.  It is a “now” word from the Holy Spirit.[2]

Moshe-Yaakov Wisnefsky (in “I Will Pay My Vows” 10 June 20): The portion of the Torah read this week opens with the story of the princes of each tribe who were sent to spy out the land of Israel before the Jewish people entered it. Joseph said to them, You are spies…

Brat: What if the tribes listed in Revelation 7 are the same at heart in Genesis 42?

Moshe Yaakov Wisnefsky (12 June 20): The espionage mission spoken of here is the first of such operations recorded in scripture. The mission of the spies sent by Joshua is the third. (This mission is read as the Haftorah of this parasha.) There were two basic differences between the two missions. Firstly, while Joshua’s mission was dictated by G‑d, Moses’ mission was left to Moses’ discretion. Secondly, Moses’ spies canvassed the entire land, while Joshua’s were sent specifically to Jericho. These differences reflect the spiritual variations inherent in the two missions.

Brat: Thanks for (mostly) answering my question, although I wasn’t talking about Joshua, but Joseph.

David Sidman (in “I Will Pay My Vows” 10 June 20): Veteran journalist Tzvi Yehezkeli went undercover into various Arab villages throughout Judea and Samaria to find out how the village residents feel about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s July plan to annex Jewish inhabited areas of the region.[3]

Israel365 (11 June 20): With the annexation of Judea and Samaria looming, now is the time to raise our holiness in recognition of this historic moment!

Exodus 19:2 They had journeyed from Rephidim, entered the wilderness of Sinai, and camped in the wilderness; Israel camped there in front of the mountain.

Jewish Press: Jewish Summer Camps Matter

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): The Sanhedrin released a statement on the soon-to-be enacted peace plan proposed by President Trump. Officially titled “Peace to Prosperity: A Vision to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli People”, the plan opened the way for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to announce his plans to annex the Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria. The Palestinian Authority rejected the plan outright.

David Sidman (11 June 20): Is a coup brewing in the Palestinian Authority?

Rabbi Shaul Leiter: Nevertheless, there is still a lot that is not clear here. Just the fact alone that that the spies were sent to scout the land and its inhabitants gave the impression that G-d was taking into consideration the natural circumstances and gave credence to the situation. If this was not the case, why were they sent at all? Moshe should have told them not to go. Why did they need to go if G-d was going to conquer the land for them, in a miraculous way? According to this logic, they were right in saying, WE CAN’T GO UP! According to nature, it was true. The fight was impossible!!

Lana Vawser (11 June 20): Don’t stop, don’t retreat! Don’t give into the ‘feelings’ and the heaviness, confusion, dread, fear and anxiety that is coming at you, but get FEROCIOUS in your faith to obey the Lord and continue to build in the way He’s asking you to build. Continue to ask for wisdom (James 1:5). Don’t let others shut down your vision. Don’t change your vision because of naysayers. Don’t water down your passion or your message because of mockers. Stand tall in obedience to leading of the Holy Spirit. Favour will fall upon your obedience. Stand tall in confidence in what God has spoken, what He has shown you and begin to partner with Him in the mobilising. Major provision is coming for many of you in the mobilising assignment over your life.[4]

Johnny Enlow: I don’t know if satan has better served Heaven’s objectives since the Cross, and we are not yet halfway through 2020! Yes, satan managed some killing with his “storms” but overall, his normal death toll is way, way down for the year. He comes to kill, steal and destroy, BUT GOD comes that we might have “abundant life.”[5]

David Sidman (11 June 20): Official data regarding ‘Palestinian’ sentiments of the plan, even if recorded, would likely be inaccurate as most PA [Palestinian Authority] citizens fear retribution should they openly call to live under Israeli rule. That’s why Yehezkeli, a fluent Arabic speaker, entered their villages posing as an Arab to hear their true sentiments. As the camera was mounted inside eyeglasses, the interviewees didn’t even know that they were being recorded.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): Each one according to his deeds, if they are good so his right is recorded in the heavens forever.

Moshe Yaakov Wisnefsky: The average person has complete control only of his outer self, i.e. his soul’s means of expression: actions, words, and thoughts. These means of expression are signified by the city of Jericho. Jericho means “scent”, and scent is an external aspect of a person’s being; it therefore signifies his behavior – thought, word, and deed – which are external in contrast to his emotions. The soul’s means of expression are its “garment”: we can change our modes of thinking, talking, and acting, just as we can change our clothes. Joshua’s mission, therefore “canvassing Jericho”, is appropriate for all, since anyone can examine and rule over his “Jericho”. Thus, G‑d directly commanded Joshua to send spies to Jericho.

Kaji Douša: (12 June 20): Prayer
God, help us to bear good fruit. When we don’t, help us to know better than to share it. And, when others give us fruit that we cannot take, help us to know better than to eat it. Amen.

Helen Calder (5 June 20): God uses the means of stories and parables throughout the books of the prophets.
Why? He is after the hearts of his people.
And some of these are the stories of the prophets themselves.

Johnny Enlow: Everybody, please keep this “hush-hush” from satan as we don’t want him second-guessing the rest of his 2020 plans. It looks like our great God has a big surprise for him at every turn. It will go down in history: 2020 – the year God greatly used satan – continues.

Brat: And I still have no sanctuary.  And the leaders refuse to write me back.

Rabbi Shaul Leiter: The truth is, understanding the sin of the spies is to understand an eternal principle of being an observant Jew and fulfilling our whole relationship with Torah and its commandments.

David Sidman (11 June 20): One Arab he interviewed claims that 80% of his village wants an Israeli ID card while the other 20% secretly want it but won’t admit it. Another one in the Jordan Valley, upon realizing that the Annexation plan means that he and his village will get an Israeli ID card, he said that he’s “very happy” as is his entire village. In the Judean village of Husan, a man told Yehezkeli that everyone in his village wants to live under Israeli soverignty saying “of course I want, who wouldn’t want? Even Abu Mazen (Abbas) himself wants to.”

Kaji Douša: (12 June 20): But what do we do with the fruit that disappoints?

Rabbi Shaul Leiter: As Jews, each of us has to believe and know that if G-d commanded us to do a certain commandment, there can be not even the tiniest of doubts that it is possible to fulfill it. This is one of the principles of Torah (Midrash Rabah Bamidbar), that G-d only asks of us according to our abilities and strengths.  We. have to make vessels in a natural worldly way, even to struggle and search for the appropriate opening in the vagaries of reality (like the Talmud teaches, “not to rely on a miracle” – Kiddushin 39b). It is not, G-d forbid, that G-d’s power is limited and that nature really is some independent force to impact on whether or not we can fulfill a commandment. Rather, this is exactly what G-d wanted, that the fulfillment of the commandment does not disrupt or destroy nature. Instead the Divine desire was that the life of a Jew should be fulfilled within the limits and boundaries of the way He created the world. This is part of the Divine plan to purify and elevate the natural order and make for G-d a dwelling place in this lower world. (Midrash TanchumaParshat Bechukotai. Section 3).

David Sidman (11 June 20): At one point, Yehezkeli interviewed a Palestinian policeman ‘M’, an apparent captain in the PA [Palestinian Authority] police force. When ‘M’ was asked if he would prefer to obtain Israeli citizenship, his response was “100%, Not just me, I have 60 men working under me.”[6]

Rabbi Shaul Leiter: Now we can understand the sin of the spies. These were leaders, as the verse says “…all of them, men, leaders of the Children of Israel (Bamidbar/Numbers 13:3). They should have known that their entire mission was to check what was the easiest and most effective way within the natural order to bring G-d’s promises to fruition that would bring the Jewish people to their promised land, a promise that without question would happen.

Kaji Douša: (12 June 20): Our actions do this bearing of fruit. In all that we do, we hold a basket of fruit into which we and the others around us make an offering.

Exodus 19:3 Then Moses went up to God; the LORD called to him from the mountain, saying, “Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the Israelites:

Moshe-Yaakov Wisnefsky: Jacob was also known as “Israel”, so the phrase “the children of Israel“, while usually denoting the Jewish people as a whole, may also be literally understood to mean “the sons of Jacob”.

IMPORTANT NOTE by Elijah List Founder, Steve Shultz: This article and word of the Lord is so brilliant! So RIGHT ON. Now, realize that the premise within this Word will shock some – because every minute since the fall of mankind, satan has continually, against his own purposes – played into God’s hands. Every evil he has ever worked, God has turned for good. This pandemic and the social injustices brought forth are being used by God to fix GENERATIONS of problems and evil on the earth!! This was not satan’s plan. But oops! –Steve Shultz

Brat (echo): And I still have no sanctuary.  And the leaders refuse to write me back.

Moshe Yaakov Wisnefsky: The account of Moses’ mission is relevant for the rest of us in that we must also strive to achieve Moses’ level of divine consciousness. The more we meditate on the futility of materialism and the awesomeness of G‑d, the more we develop ecstatic love for G‑d and antipathy for anything that opposes divinity. To the extent we succeed in this, so may we inspect and conquer our seven emotions, as well.

Brat (in “‘Make Nice’ is Not as It Seems” 11 June 20):  …Sometimes all we can do is Make Nice.  That is sometimes the most valiant.  Not all Make Nice is a show put on to deceive others.  Sometimes it is done to preserve what little dignity we have left (or what little dignity we feel the other doesn’t have.)  Sometimes those are the only baby steps we can take to bridge the gap.  That doesn’t make us false prophets.  It doesn’t mean we are phony, fake, imposters.  It just means we went as far as we could go and could go no farther.  Maybe he forgave as much as he could.

Moshe Yaakov Wisnefsky: The spies’ error, in this sense, consisted of going beyond the scope of their mission and drawing conclusions. They were not being deceptive: Moses had asked them to see how the land could be conquered naturally, and they felt it could not. But they should have recalled that Moses only asked them to see how the land could be conquered, not if.[7]

Helen Calder (5 June 20): Anointed parables and stories, inspired by the Holy Spirit, are going to completely disarm them.

Rabbi Shaul Leiter: “When a person with faith is confronted with a problem, he believes G-d will help him overcome it. But a person with trust doesn’t see his difficulties as problems in the first place, because he trusts that G-d doesn’t send problems, only challenges.

Helen Calder (5 June 20): These stories will bypass the listeners’ history, their understanding, and will be aimed straight at their hearts.

Brat (in “‘Make Nice’ is Not as It Seems” 11 June 20):  How many times have I prayed for the Holy Spirit to go into my dregs and clean out my heart and soul, to go where I cannot go, because in my humanness I just couldn’t do it?

Jo: Women are made to forgive.

Rick Joyner (in “Last Laugh” 9 June 20): Now that we have entered the fight, there will be a change of tone and demeanor in my messages. They are going to be more like war chronicles. There will still be some about how to prepare, where to mobilize, etc., but I think we will all find that this intensity will be invigorating and some of the best and most fruitful times of our lives.

Brat: Isn’t what I’ve been writing all these years like War Chronicles?  It’s not like I’m in competition with you; never have been.  I’ve shared it with you from the beginning.  Just sayn.  You have been silent with me just like the rest of them.

Helen Calder (5 June 20): But it wasn’t too many years ago, when I was intimidated about these gifts. For a time, I fell into comparing my ministry with those of others in our team of prophets and teachers.

Jo (in “‘Make Nice’ is Not as It Seems” 11 June 20): Also I think men handle it so differently. We are about creating life.  We are healers.  Men are killers and warriors.  That sounds so extreme.  Even in the Bible they are killing each other.  We must forgive to sustain life.

Me: I see that.

Gina Hanrahan: Watch “Prophetic Word The Cover Is Coming Off!” on YouTube: https://youtu.be/oXehNdj7nBA

[Luke 12:1-5]

Sophia Buller: Confirmation

Brat (in “‘Make Nice’ is Not as It Seems” 11 June 20):  … You’re right.  It just hit me deeply that the truth I imagined was not truth in reality.  Make nice was the most he could do and I respect that.  That’s all I can do with the Funny Bunnies.  The pain is too deep and prolonged.

Jo: So much of life is make nice.  Sometimes that is the highest effort.

Johnny Enlow: It hit me as a “slap in the face” revelation – just how crucial a servant of God that satan has already been in 2020. He has, perhaps, done the Kingdom of God the most good since he “succeeded” in killing Jesus. Two major “storms” of 2020 that were initiated by satan, either directly or through his loyal instruments, have been co-opted by God to address two priorities His Church was never going to get to without satan’s “help”. Hear that again. We were not going to address these two priorities without some help from satan.

Helen Calder (5 June 20): I felt like I was on a ground floor level, and the others were higher up!

The Foursquare Church (12 June 20): A unified time of prayer, fasting and lament

Helen Calder (5 June 20): And the Lord smote King David’s heart, through a story.

Kaji Douša: (12 June 20): Like the friend we desperately need who just … vanishes. Or the confidante who pushes advice we neither need nor want. Worse still, the one who betrays us. This is all indigestible fruit.

Brat (in “‘Make Nice’ is Not as It Seems” 11 June 20):  Maybe the Make Nice in this case is grace?  Maybe Make Nice can be a type of mercy bridge?

Helen Calder (5 June 20): Today I believe the Lord is calling forth many of His people, especially prophetic storytellers and story-makers, from out of hiding!

Exodus 19:4 You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself.

Brat: Yes, I saw that in Joshua 2.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): The Sanhedrin’s official statement opened with a prayer of thanksgiving to the God of Israel and Master of the World.

Helen Calder (5 June 20): Who you are, and the message you carry, is priceless and powerful!

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): “We thank God for a positive change in the attitude of America’s leader President Donald Trump towards the people of Israel, and God has thus honored him with good deeds like King Cyrus.”

Daniel Pontious (11 June 20): Every Word that God speaks energizes the atmospheres and changes the conditions in the atmospheres themselves, as they are released forth. The Power of Gods Words are always active not Idle, so if we are releasing what He says into the air it is going to have an affect upon something.

Israel365 (12 June 20): A Moral Compass Based On His Word ✡ “Every man did as he pleased”

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): Department’s opinion established in 1978 is null and void and that now the official US policy is that Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria are legal under international law.

Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if you obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession out of all the peoples. Indeed, the whole earth is mine,

Kaji Douša: (12 June 20): At the end of the day, we take stock, we check the yield. Our assessment isn’t neutral; we need what we bear. It is the spiritual food off of which we survive. With good fruit, we know exactly what to do. We are thankful. We eat lustily and are strengthened for the journey.

Helen Calder (5 June 20): At times, a prophetic story will be radical, it will be unusual, it may even be confrontational.  But it will always be positioned from the Father’s heart of love.

Daniel Pontious (11 June 20): Adjusting your own personal atmospheres is an amazing key that has helped me to unlock deeper areas of Revelation from the Holy Spirit as well as great ability to hear His Voice at the same time.

Moshe Yaakov Wisnefsky: Nonetheless, our primary task is to inspect and conquer our modes of expression. This is in fact the key to our ultimate conquest of our emotions (the seven nations) and intellect (the additional three nations), just as Jericho was the “key” fortress that “unlocked” the way into the Land of Israel. This is because the source of expression is deeper in the soul than is intellect or emotion, and therefore, harnessing our modes of expression and reorienting them towards holiness indirectly affect our emotions and intellect in the same way, just as our choice of clothing affects our self-image and perspective on life.[8]

Lana Vawser (11 June 20): The Lord has been training many of you for this hour. The warfare has been relentless because of the MOVEMENT that is being birthed through you. This demonic assignment is to silence you. It is to stop you. There is a spirit of witchcraft trying to shut you down. Take authority over this demonic assignment. It’s coming against your MOVEMENT in the spirit in the sense of ‘taking ground’ and it’s coming against the MOVEMENT the Lord is birthing through you in the earth that is KEY for the end time harvest.

Kaji Douša: (12 June 20): As a little one, close to the ground, I fished hungrily through the leaves. But after a while, I grew weary, and at some point I switched from plucking to collecting. Sitting in the center of the row, arms out, I’d await everyone else’s deposits to my basket, with the thrill of wonder to see what they would share.

Brat: And Rahab hid the spies on her roof under stalks of flax.  Just marveling at the juxtapositions.

Lara Trump (11 June 20): The President saw the list of Patriots who have already entered and he noticed that your name was MISSING.

Brat: Thank you for noticing.

Rabbi Shaul Leiter: What exactly was the terrible sin of the spies to receive such a harsh punishment? At first glance, isn’t this what they were sent for, to scout out the situation and report back?

Donald J. Trump (12 June 20): Does this email work?

Brat: Usually.  Does yours?

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): We congratulate the American leader, President Trump, for not failing and being punished like the British who divided the Land of Israel and were punished for [it] by the disintegration of the British Empire to shreds, precisely as the Prophet Joel writes of the “Great Judgment.”

Rabbi Shaul Leiter: One of the explanations is that they overstepped their boundaries. Like a soldier on a mission, they should have just described the situation in the land and left the conclusions to Moshe, their commander in chief.  When they insisted that, “We can’t go up!!!”, they sinned by denying G-d’s omnipotence.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): Therefore, in the program as proposed by the President of the US, we only accept the application of Jewish sovereignty insofar as it does not oblige us to abandon our rights and obligations pertaining to the land of Israel according to the borders set out in the divine promise recorded in the Torah.

Exodus 19:6 but you shall be for me a priestly kingdom and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the Israelites.”

Israel365 (11 June 20): Israel is Returning to her Biblical Borders ✡ “Deliver Yisrael from the Philistines”

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): The Torah clearly established the boundaries of the Land of Israel in several places as well as the requirement for the Jews to possess it:

I will set your borders from the Sea of Reeds to the Sea of Philistia, and from the wilderness to the Euphrates; for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hands, and you will drive them out before you. Exodus 23:31

And you shall take possession of the land and settle in it, for I have assigned the land to you to possess. Numbers 33:53

Kaji Douša: (12 June 20): “Bear fruit in every good work,” Paul said. But not all works are good. Not all people are prepared to hand us the fruit we want or need at the moment.

Exodus 19:7 So Moses came, summoned the elders of the people, and set before them all these words that the LORD had commanded him.

Helen Calder (5 June 20): Stories will be released that are like a wakeup call and are going to be as a trumpet, calling for God’s people to arise.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): As the Sanhedrin of Israel, we will gladly consider any program that a world leader suggests if it is in accordance with the Torah.

Kaji Douša: (12 June 20): Pray. Look in your basket. See the fruit of God’s people. With God’s grace, know what to do with each piece.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): The Sanhedrin’s decision was signed by Rabbi Dov Stein, Rabbi Yoel Schwartz, Rabbi Yishai B’Avad.

Helen Calder (5 June 20): At this time, the Lord is releasing stories, parables and messages that are prophetic in nature. And these are a new sound that hasn’t been heard before.

Exodus 19:8a The people all answered as one: “Everything that the LORD has spoken we will do.”

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (12 June 20): Therefore, the government of Israel is obligated to accept sovereignty over all the territories of Israel within the borders described in the Torah.

I Will Pay My Vows 10 June 20

12 Jun

Working Dates: Wednesday, June 10, 2020 to Thursday, June 11, 2020

[9 pages of dialogue]

Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein (10 June 20): “Hello! Everybody!”

Russ Ruffino (10 June 20): No complex funnels.

Israel365 (10 June 20): Bring Kindness to the Forefront! ✡ “Lit up the world”

Hank Kunneman and The Elijah List (10 June 20): A few days later, after this prophecy by Hank Kunneman was released on May 31, 2020, a dramatic display of lightning in Washington DC, our nation’s capital, was reported on major news headlines.

NEWS: Fox News, June 5, 2020: Washington Monument struck by lightning

NEWS: BBC, June 5, 2020: Washington Monument struck by lightning

(To see the dramatic display of lightning click https://youtu.be/xsdBaIjPvyo.) 

Steve Shultz: From time to time, I like to remind readers that when God speaks there are many, many, MANY different things He is saying all at the same time.

Russ Ruffino (10 June 20): No overwhelming tech work.

Psalm 116:1 I love the LORD, because he has heard my voice and my supplications.

Steve Shultz: In this word, the Lightning is God’s sign that satan is falling “just like lightning falls from Heaven.” I point this out because recently we shared on our Facebook a word by Johnny Enlow in which Johnny says this lightning, hitting in DC, is a sign that one of God’s angels has arrived and is delivering a great message that His “big boys” are in town.

Russ Ruffino (10 June 20): In a time when there is great fear… LEADERS are more necessary than at any other time.

Donald Trump, Jr. (10 June 20): I need a HUGE favor

Rev. Ken Kesselus: Perhaps Jesus knew better than to invite experienced leaders or exceptional examples. He needed down-to-earth, vulnerable, and ordinary people – a kind of dozen who were representative of the general population and understood their pain and fears. Furthermore, who else would have had the courage or naivete – or the foolishness – to join such a band of brothers on such a dangerous mission?[1]

Christian Harfouche: However, the Invisible Enemy we are facing cannot halt the spread of the Gospel, and cannot stop the mission that God has empowered us to carry out. The world today needs the Word of the Lord, perhaps more than ever, so help us connect with you in ways that no outside force can stop or circumvent.

Jennifer LeClaire: It’s no coincidence Jezebel is a key player in the book of Revelation, not just in Revelation 2, but in passages about the woman riding the beast.

Donné Clement Petruska: That Esther prophecy was about a woman who will rise up in the middle of this President’s term and pour out the oil of gladness on this nation.

Russ Ruffino (10 June 20): Let’s start making the impact you were born to make.

Steve Shultz: Which one is accurate? Answer: A resounding “BOTH are accurate” at the same time.

Brian Simmons (11 June 20): I Hear His Whisper…”Your words are important.”

Steve Shultz: Enjoy and be encouraged!

Sunil Isaac, The Elijah List (10 June 20): In the midst of this time of uncertainty and pain, be encouraged with this dramatic, prophetic sign that has recently manifested in the news. On May 31, 2020, a prophecy was released by Hank Kunneman regarding the sign of lightning. Now remember, a sign points to something else. One definition of the word “sign” is as follows: “an object, quality, or event whose presence or occurrence indicates the probable presence or occurrence of something else.” So, a sign is not the actual destination but rather an indication of something else. What is God doing in the midst of this unprecedented time we are in? What does the prophetic sign of displays of lightning indicate?

Israel365 (10 June 20): Your thunder rumbled like wheels; lightning lit up the world; the earth quaked and trembled ~ Psalms 77:19 (The Israel Bible™)

Hank Kunneman (May 31, 2020): “Then look and see the lightning. Behold, the displays that I shall cause to take place, even in the natural. For you will see satan fall. You will see his agenda fall in the displays of lightning. Rejoice, because a new day I have promised upon this land; and what has started off harsh, there is some rocky waters ahead.” But God says, “It shall smooth out to bring you the decade of difference that I have promised, that you will testify and you will say, ‘This is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel.’ It is among us once again,” says the Spirit of God.

Psalm 116:2 Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.

Kevin Riordan: At the same time I see lamp stands being lit, and lamp stands that were dim burning bright. I see unification like has never been seen, where there is a laser focus on “the Kingdom”. There will be no titles, no hierarchy, no egos. I see a focus on discipling, and sending out. I see the harvest ripe, and the harvesters working together to bring it in. I see the prodigals coming home, and their bringing friends.

Rev. Ken Kesselus: Who among us, for example, could have felt qualified to face an unprecedented challenge posed by the coronavirus – sequestered in our homes at a time of physical separation of the Body of Christ? Nevertheless, in parish after parish and community after community – time after time – “unqualified” and untrained people rose to the occasion and accepted the hard mission to provide a remarkable closeness filled with love.

Russ Ruffino (10 June 20): There are people depending on you – your clients, employees… and even if you’re a solo-preneur, your audience is depending on you.

Rabbi Curt Landry (10 June 20): Let us take a sober assessment of the facts. Receiving bad data plants seeds of fear and doubt in our minds. However, if we take the time to uncover the facts, we can align our thoughts with God’s Word.[2]

Israel365 (10 June 20): In our day-to-day lives, we rely on the predictable laws of nature, such as the rising and setting of the sun. In His great kindness, God wanted us to be able to regulate our lives, and therefore He gave us a system that we can depend on. But in spite of the apparently predictable laws of nature, in reality Hashem is orchestrating everything directly, behind the scenes. This can be demonstrated by His control over nature during the exodus from Egypt and the splitting of the sea. This is not only true about nature, but about everything that happens in this world. As much as we try to control our lives, our efforts are overshadowed by the divine will that invariably makes the final decision. There is no place where this truth is more apparent than in the Land of Israel. Hashem reminds us in Sefer Devarim (11:10), “For the land that you are about to enter and possess is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come. There the grain you sowed had to be watered by your own labors, like a vegetable garden.” The fact that Eretz Yisrael is dependent upon the rainfall for its survival ensures that its citizens live with the constant reminder that they are dependent on God for their sustenance and livelihood. Today, nobody needs any additional signs from God that our daily routine and lives completely depend on him. We must embrace this opportunity to realize that everything is truly his, and use the gifts of abundance that he blesses us with to spread kindness!

Psalm 116:12 What shall I return to the LORD for all his bounty to me?

Russ Ruffino (10 June 20): If you’re a coach, consultant, therapist, advisor, expert – you’re somebody that has real value to deliver to the world and real knowledge to give…

Jennifer Eivaz (11 June 20): A prophetic word, especially when it is directional, also needs prophetic wisdom in order to come to pass. Have you ever received a prophetic word that you knew, without a doubt, was from God? And then after you received it, did the opposite happen instead? Or, nothing at all? The apostle Paul provides us with clear insight about this. We read his firm instruction to Timothy saying, “This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare” (1 Timothy 1:18).[3]

Rabbi Curt Landry (10 June 20): It is time for the Church to rise up because satan is using these exact deficits to accuse you day and night. He is using the orphan and poverty spirit within the Church to accomplish his goal.

Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein (10 June 20): “This is what happened in the Holocaust when they had Kristallnacht, and they had these riots and they burned down shuls [synagogues]. I’ve spoken to many Holocaust survivors and I asked them why didn’t you run? Why didn’t you leave? They burned down the shuls!”[4]

Russ Ruffino (10 June 20): I’ll walk you through the step-by-step game plan the world’s top coaches are using to serve more people and scale their businesses.

Pastor Steve Dittmar (9 June 20): Self-justification blinds us to love, by fixating our eyes on ourselves. Keeping ourselves holy often keeps us from compassion, thinking we are the right ones, maybe? But, “Mercy triumphs over judgment” (James 2:13, NKJV). In these last two weeks, my heart has been stirred into submission to Jesus Christ. I bow my knee and find myself confessing His Lordship, His all-sufficiency, and His provision of Himself. Here, I bring myself into His love and forgiveness. I pray here and extend His love and mercy to all.[5]

Brat (10 June 20): “Last Laugh” was through Abraham and Sarah to God’s throne and not through self-justification to the theater of the round: https://truthinus.wordpress.com/2020/06/10/last-laugh-9-june-20/

When Light Came In (11 June 20): And I’m here, cheering wildly for you.

Jennifer Eivaz (11 June 20): The story of Abraham and Sarah illustrates how a clear, prophetic word from God about the future still needs to be shaped and finished off with prophetic wisdom. The good thing is, God promised to give us His wisdom. The apostle James taught us, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him” (James 1:5).

Kevin Riordan: I hear the dry bones rattling, coming together, covered in flesh, an army, strong, vibrant, sword in hand, standing, eyes fixed on the General.

Russ Ruffino (10 June 20): Clients on Demand

Officer Brandon Tatum: Watch “White Privilege My A**” on YouTube: https://youtu.be/bhy-NvXt0-U

Rabbi Curt Landry (10 June 20): What is satan after with these attacks? God’s children.

Officer Brandon Tatum’s website contact page: “What’s going on…?

Brat to Office Tatum (11 June 20): “Tracking Progress” [https://wordpress.com/post/truthinus.wordpress.com/1678] is a dialogue depicting failed attempts at reconciling the privileged Church with those of us being stonewalled and gaslit in the trenches by their tactics.  This is not just one church, but bleeds across denominations and faiths.  This has been an on-going problem with the Churches that I have been tracking for thirteen years.  Therefore, the blog is also on-going and current as the dialogue continues to unfold.  (I am the voice of Brat in the pieces.)  My blog shows the disparity between lip service and integrity.  It is not all that different than what George Floyd experienced, and the Church doesn’t care.

Jennifer LeClaire: Much of the church has become very apathetic to the Holy Spirit these days.

Martha Spong (10 June 20): Is God distant, removed, enthroned above our human troubles?

Rev. Ken Kesselus: Jesus’ primary followers were an unusual group, somewhat like the “dirty dozen” soldiers in a 1967 movie of the same name. Based on a true story and framed against the World War II D-day invasion, it portrays a special military operation designed to kill high-ranking Nazi officers. The American high command ordered an unorthodox officer to select a twelve-man squad for a mission with a very high probability of failure and the likely death of most of the combatants.

Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein (10 June 20): “They said that it was the government and it was going to pass. [Hitler] is a fascist. He’s meshuggeneh (crazy). They’re going to throw him out of government. Politics are going to change. My factory is here. My family is here. My [livelihood] is here.”

Russ Ruffino (10 June 20): Just a simple 4-Step Client Attraction Process that works on autopilot, every day, like clockwork.

Jennifer LeClaire: And we’re all familiar with the lukewarm church, which is what we’re seeing manifest in the earth in this hour.

Rabbi Curt Landry (10 June 20): The Bible clearly tells us satan’s goal. Satan’s goal is to gain access and a legal right to mark you and your loved ones for an eternity of spiritual death—Hell.

Tawanda Mangawa: Can i repent on behalf of my nation?

Amy Willard: Yup. Vicarious repentance. Plead for mercy

Terri Noble Wissel: Yes

Elaine Reardon: I repent on behalf of others until they can repent themselves

Paula Wicks: Yes you can repent for your nation  many intercessors do this and it’s a natural progression like the weeping cry for souls.

Kevin Riordan: I saw that in the months to come, that we will see the fire of God poured out on the church, producing a tsunami wave of repentance. I see the idols of entertainment, money, recognition, comfort, the idol of gross sin being destroyed. I see reverence and awe, I see the fear of the Lord and a hunger for His presence restored to the church.

Steve Shultz: When YOU receive a prophetic word…do you know how to walk it out?

Rev. Ken Kesselus: In most small and average-sized congregations, carrying out this work begins with groups of lay members who may not believe they have superlative qualifications, like Jesus’ first dozen. But like the apostles, they can rise to the occasion to meet the needs of people, whatever they may be. Our ordinariness is not a hindrance unless we choose to make it so.

Hank Kunneman and The Elijah List (10 June 20): As prophetic people, even in the midst of such upheaval, let’s remain encouraged because a new day is upon us. The prophetic sign is pointing in that direction. An outpouring of the Spirit is coming upon our land, ushering in healing and unity that can only come about by the power of the Spirit working on the hearts of men and women across the land.

Psalm 116:13 I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD,

Kevin Riordan: As I was praying on Pentecost Sunday, the Lord spoke to me and told me that His bride was entering her final preparations for her wedding day. The Lord began to show me the future of the church.

Mark 10:39“We can,” they answered.

Jesus said to them, “You will drink the cup I drink and be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with, 40but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared.”

Jennifer Eivaz (11 June 20): Notice how he connected Timothy’s ability to wage a good warfare through the effective use of his prophecies. Apparently you can have a prophetic word – a crystal clear communication from the Holy Spirit about something in the future – but still lose what God intended for you to gain if you don’t make use of your prophecies. This reveals our intimate partnership with the Holy Spirit. He releases a prophetic word to you, but your response to the prophecy will often determine the final outcome. This is why we need prophetic wisdom. Prophetic wisdom involves the steps and strategies that escort us through the process that accompanies a prophetic word. And this kind of wisdom is clearly not from human origin, but a supernatural wisdom that comes from the Holy Spirit.

Kevin Riordan: I see a church clothed in white, clothed in power, full of wisdom, unshakable, unstoppable, following the lead of her King Jesus. I see the glory of God covering the earth!

Psalm 116:14 I will pay my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people.

Russ Ruffino (10 June 20): I want you to step up – focus on how you can be resourceful and keep serving your audience… and we are going to help you rise up.

Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein (10 June 20): “All of us, we all need to get out of here. It’s not for us anymore. We don’t belong here anymore. Hashem took away a lot of the money that was keeping us here, the education that was keeping us here.”

When Light Came In (11 June 20): This restoration and restructuring work you’re doing is worth it.

Kevin Riordan: I see a church unwilling to sacrifice the presence for the tithe, but a church that completely trusts God for their supply. I see the windows of Heaven opening, and financial provision being released. I see the church as a place of peace, a safe haven in the storm. I see the wings of God covering her.

Martha Spong (10 June 20): Prayer
Powerful God, you strengthen us, no matter what storms we face in this life. We give you the glory! Amen.

Rev. Ken Kesselus: Who among Jesus’ dozen was really suited to carry out God’s work – and who among us is qualified to proclaim the Gospel to an unbelieving world and share God’s love in action among those around us? Who, in any generation, is qualified to heal a broken world in Jesus’ name? And yet, like the fictitious dirty dozen and Jesus’ original dozen, we can find the courage and the wherewithal to accept the command to follow Jesus into ministry for this generation.

Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his faithful ones.

Rev. Ken Kesselus: The mission on which Jesus sent his twelve was at least as risky as that of the “dirty dozen.” He described it in familiar imagery as going out “like sheep into the midst of wolves.” He warned them of the likelihood of their being flogged and “dragged before governors and kings” as a result of accepting Jesus’ call to mission. In the most frightening of Jesus’ warnings to his dozen, he suggested that the field of spiritual battle would be one in which “brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death,” and that others would hate them for following Jesus.

Steven Springer (9 June 20): I was taken in the spirit and saw, in a vision, the enemy trying to take the breath away from mankind. In the case of the coronavirus, it is the breath in the lungs that is affected. In the tragic death of George Floyd, his cry was, “I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe.” This is a tragic injustice, and the voices of our African American brothers and sisters are heard! May the peace of Heaven comfort his family and the African American community. Both the victims of the virus and the victim of this tragedy experienced the same effect: “I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe.”[6]

Martha Spong (10 June 20): As we live through a different kind of storm, one we have been told has the potential to return in a second wave, we may wonder the same. Is the God of storms a troubling picture? Where is God while we bury loved ones or see others struggling to recover from Covid-19?

Brat (10 June 20): I posted my brother’s obituary (David Hauser) to his Facebook page yesterday.

Donald J. Trump (11 June 20): Don’t let them silence you

Rev. Ken Kesselus: The important lesson for today is that we Christians of the 21st century are the current “dozen” for Jesus. Of course, the dangers we face are seldom as dramatic as those faced by Jesus’ apostles. Still, remaining faithful in following Jesus remains a formidable task. But there is hope because we bear significant resemblance to the commonplace apostles.

Steve Shultz: As people are starting to emerge in a fresh, new way, many are receiving new direction, new insight and revelation from the Lord. It’s important that we know what our part is in the words we receive.

Moshe-Yaakov Wisnefsky: The portion of the Torah read this week opens with the story of the princes of each tribe who were sent to spy out the land of Israel before the Jewish people entered it. Joseph said to them, You are spies…

Brat: What if the tribes listed in Revelation 7 are the same at heart in Genesis 42?

David Sidman (11 June 20): Veteran journalist Tzvi Yehezkeli went undercover into various Arab villages throughout Judea and Samaria to find out how the village residents feel about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s July plan to annex Jewish inhabited areas of the region.[7]

Israel365 (11 June 20): With the annexation of Judea and Samaria looming, now is the time to raise our holiness in recognition of this historic moment!

Moshe-Yaakov Wisnefsky: Jacob was also known as “Israel”, so the phrase “the children of Israel“, while usually denoting the Jewish people as a whole, may also be literally understood to mean “the sons of Jacob”.

Psalm 116:16 O LORD, I am your servant; I am your servant, the child of your serving girl. You have loosed my bonds.

Kevin Riordan: I see lamp stands being removed, and personal kingdoms falling.

Russ Ruffino (10 June 20): NOW more than ever.

Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein (10 June 20): “Not right now, but do I know I should be going? One-hundred percent. I don’t have what it takes but I’m going to work on myself.”

When Light Came In (11 June 20): You are worth it.

Kevin Riordan: I see church bodies much smaller. I see everyone using their gifts, playing a part in meetings under the leading of Holy Spirit. No one will be lost, no one forgotten, the term “the family of God” will be experienced in the fullest sense.

Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein (10 June 20): “So I know it is very hard. I know you are going to ask, ‘Rabbi Wallerstein, are you going? Rabbi, you are giving me [rebuke] but are you going?’”

Russ Ruffino (10 June 20): This is the time to do it.

Kevin Riordan: I see a church solely in pursuit of God’s presence. I see a church that teaches the full counsel of God’s word, and the fullness of the Spirit. I see true worship being poured out, where the focus is ministering to the King. I see Gods glory filling the church, where healing, deliverance and miracles are natural. I see demonic bondage breaking, the healing of hearts and bodies.

When Light Came In (11 June 20): This reclaiming and releasing is worth it.

Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein (10 June 20): “And they didn’t leave. But they were saying the same thing I am saying now.”

Psalm 116:17 I will offer to you a thanksgiving sacrifice and call on the name of the LORD.

Brat on Facebook (10 June 20 at 2:48 pm): Lord God, thank You that You provided the lightning show in Washington, DC to be a sign to what You are doing to show Satan fell from his throne in a flash.  Principalities fell, not Your beloved ones.  Thank You that Your people in Israel are showing kindness to redeem the times, as Your thunder rumbled like wheels; lightning lit up the world; the earth quaked and trembled (Ps 77:19) Thank You for establishing Your word as finished. Thank You that You are in control in our world!

Hank Kunneman and The Elijah List (10 June 20): We are entering a day that we have been waiting for. We are entering a season when prophetic promises that have been delayed are now being released. We have reason to rejoice because God is still large and in charge!

Psalm 116:18 I will pay my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people,

Rev. Ken Kesselus: God’s perspective is that what needs doing in the world requires ordinary people, like most of us. God’s work requires the very experiences we have had at work, or at school, or at play or raising a family, or doing whatever is normal for us – all of which we can use to help others. God needs today’s “dozen” to utilize a great variety of gifts and skills and experiences to carry out a task no less daunting than that portrayed in the movie – the continuing business of proclaiming the good news to those who do not know God and for carrying out the imperatives of the Gospel – loving our neighbors as ourselves, bringing about justice and peace, providing for those in need.

When Light Came In (11 June 20): This relearning and rebuilding is worth it.

Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein (10 June 20): “Hashem help us. Oy, I should have the koach (strength) to lead you. It is written in all the seforim (holy books) that this is what is going to happen; whoever is stuck in galus (exile) when Moshiach comes, and some of us are not even going to make it to Eretz Yisrael. It’s the best place. And the best place is in the west part of Jerusalem.”

Psalm 116:19 in the courts of the house of the LORD, in your midst, O Jerusalem. Praise the LORD!
