Taskmasters 18 Aug 20

20 Aug

Working Dates: Tuesday, August 18, 2020 to Thursday, August 20, 2020

[9 pages of dialogue anchored in Exodus 1:8-1:16 (the first half) from the lectionary readings for 12 Pentecost on 23 Aug 20]

Exodus 1:8 Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph.

Adam F. Thompson (13 Aug 20): I am reminded of Joseph telling his brothers that what the enemy intended for destruction and evil, God used for good (Genesis 50:20). I see death becoming resurrection in Lebanon. I see God bringing resurrection to the whole nation if apostles and evangelists respond now. This is the urgency of the call to “go.”[1]

Jonathan Ngai (19 Aug 20): God is bringing in those that have been called to Arts & Entertainment. There is a remnant that has been cultivating deep roots in the Lord, consecrating themselves, and training to perfect their gifts and talents. These individuals have been hidden – waiting for the green light from the Lord to come into the city. Many who have tried to come on their own terms have been frustrated, but those that have “waited upon the Lord” are going to hear the words “GO” in these coming days, and they will take the industry by storm.[2]

Amanda Grace (14 Aug 20): For My Spirit is moving across the United States of America, My Spirit is moving across My firstborn Israel. Nothing and I mean NOTHING is done in secret pertaining to My children, My firstborn that the Lord God does not see.[3]

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (18 Aug 20): “I can totally understand Trump’s frustration,” Rabbi [Yehudah] Glick said. “He understood that Jerusalem should unite all the Jews. He was shocked that after he announced that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel, the American Jews turned their backs on him. Some even criticized him for moving the embassy. I can understand his frustration.” [4]

Amanda Grace (14 Aug 20): Approaching Rosh Hashanah there is going to be a breach says the Lord, a breach of contract, a breach of alliances. For the spirit of Esau is rising up in resentment says the Lord, is rising up.

Exodus 1:9 He said to his people, “Look, the Israelite people are more numerous and more powerful than we.

Peggy Morris (15 Aug 20): But they did not stop! “They countered with prayer to God and set a round-the-clock guard against them.” (Neh 4:8) And they positioned themselves to fight!

Deborah Perkins (18 Aug 20): The word circumspectly comes from the Latin circum (around) and specere (to look), and means to look cautiously, with watchfulness every way; paying attention so that one guards against surprise or danger. This is the role of biblical watchmen and your gift is essential right now.”[5]

Amanda Grace (14 Aug 20): Be watchman on the walls My children, watch carefully the TIMING, the EMERGING, and the PLAYERS in events that will now unfold in a fashion one after the other and ALL CONNECTED.

Simcha-Shmuel Treister: What are “the walls of his house”? These are the walls of his heart. Regarding this it is written: “Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed to G‑d.” (Isaiah 38:2)

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (18 Aug 20): But the rabbi noted a negative aspect of this process.

Amanda Grace (14 Aug 20): Nothing can take from Jacob O Israel what I the Lord have given, the birthright, they want to take back a birthright surrendered in such dissidence, arrogance, and defiance. Now that spirit rises up attempting to stir up a jealous, zealous, defiant, idolatrous people who are filled with hate. Who do not want to be good neighbors, for I will bless those who bless you, O Israel, and will curse those who curse you, says the Lord thy God the Righteous Judge, Who changes NOT!!

Israel365 (19 Aug 20): Joining Together to Repent and to Pray ✡ “Assyria, rod of My anger”

Exodus 1:10 Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, or they will increase and, in the event of war, join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.”

Lance Wallnau (17 Aug 20): Did you know God has a cancel culture? I know, you probably think I’ve been taken over by a leftist hacker, but hear me out.

Vince Amlin (18 Aug 20): Everything is Canceled

Jonathan Ngai (19 Aug 20): A few months after Hollywood Arise, we heard the testimony of Kanye West sharing in his Sunday services across America that he was Nebuchadnezzar – who once knew Jesus (one of his first breakout songs was “Jesus Walks” in 2004) and then lost his mind to the materialism, money, and fame of Hollywood. His testimony is now that he is “back in his right mind” because of Jesus! It is interesting that Nebuchadnezzar was the king that built the Babylonian Gate.

Steve Shultz: I’ve been at this prophetic stuff for right at 30 years, and I can tell you that the more I pay attention…the more I realize I need to “pay attention even more.”

Brat Log note (15 Aug 20): The abuse is heavy in the atmosphere today.  The Funny Bunnies say to allow the ROAR of the Lion of Judah to flow through us.  I keep thinking of C.S. Lewis’ Aslan from the Chronicles of Narnia.

Lovesick Scribe (17 Aug 20): …The jolt came during the offering message when Scripture was stated with the undertone to manipulate and control those listening. As he talked about the obedience of spiritual sons/daughters to their spiritual fathers, he quoted John 14:15, “Jesus said, ‘If you love me, you will keep my commandments.’” I could not believe what I was hearing. It came out as if equating oneself to Christ and His authority. I did not fully or even partially understand what was taking place in that moment. All I knew was that the blinders were being removed, and I realized that something was very wrong. …

Amanda Grace (14 Aug 20): Bilateral agreements, agreements superficially of peace have stirred up the spirit of Esau in a people angry they have been left out, locked out of influence, they have attempted to take by force says the Lord, this spirit, this people will seek an ally, an old foe of Israel, to rise up and not only make noise but launch an attack, a significant one.  However, I the Lord thy God will supernaturally expose so it does not have the full effect desired.

Simcha-Shmuel Treister: This righteous King of Judah, hearing that the Assyrian army had surrounded Jerusalem, responded by prayer alone – and was granted a miraculous victory as the huge enemy force perished of a plaque overnight!

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (18 Aug 20): “This is what we are seeing in the US right now,” Rabbi [Nachman] Kahana said. “The non-Jews are happy that God is acting towards the Jews with love.”

Rick Joyner (18 Aug 20): Oysters are filters for the sea as each one filters about a gallon of water an hour. However, just a grain of sand that gets stuck in the oyster can become an irritant. The result is that the oyster will encase the irritant in a hardened substance that we know as a pearl—a treasure of great value. The same can be true of an irritant in a culture. What was an agitation can become a treasure of great value.[6]

Wanda Alger (17 Aug 20): As I was driving to church on Sunday, I was praying about the increased heaviness and hopelessness that seems to be gripping our nation. I haven’t even wanted to watch the news, look at social media, or read any papers. I’m tired of hearing the latest fallout and negative statistic and sensing the weariness of many believers. It’s like trying to stand up during an earthquake. The mountains of our culture seem be falling all around us and we don’t know how to get our footing. It has appeared like the devil is having a heyday and we have been reacting to his assaults and trying to counter his attacks. It wasn’t until I entered into worship later that morning that this vision of a crumbling mountain changed.[7]

Exodus 1:11 Therefore they set taskmasters over them to oppress them with forced labor. They built supply cities, Pithom and Rameses, for Pharaoh.

Vince Amlin (in “Spare All” 18 July 20): For every taskmaster, there is also a fleshpot. Sure, the Egyptian system wasn’t perfect, but how much effort will it take to set up a new one?

Lance Wallnau (17 Aug 20): Because Christ paid a high price so that we may be seen as perfect to God, we should be motivated to want to see ourselves in that position — and to throw off any word that makes us think otherwise.

Israel365 (in “Could Not Answer” 09 Aug 20): God always keeps his word ✡ “The covenant He made on oath with your fathers”

Jonathan Ngai (19 Aug 20): Fast forward to recent news, when we saw the headlines in the papers read: “Hollywood & Highland is getting a massive makeover and a new name”! A year after Hollywood Arise, a new owner purchased the center where the Academy Awards take place, and where the Babylonian Gate sits, and they announced a $100 million renovation where the present Babylonian structure is going to be TORN DOWN, and the center will be given a NEW NAME!

Breaking Israel News (in “Could Not Answer” 09 Aug 20): Torah Codes: Beirut Explosion was “Pillar of Fire and Smoke” Protecting Israel

Amanda Grace (14 Aug 20): The United Arab Emirates are attempting to hedge their bet. Look carefully at the timing MY children after all the explosions, that were warned of before they came forth, this peace deal emerges, watch the timing watch the connections, connect the dots My children, pray for Insight and discernment as you go forth for this will impact the United States of America and will become a point of contention between two parties already violently opposed says the Lord of Hosts this day.

Daniel and Amber Pierce (19 July 2019): This morning, God told me to go down to the waters of the Persian Gulf and decree that He is a God who breaks the bow and bends the spear and tells the wars to cease. Then God showed me a crack in the foundations of Islam and told me to decree a shaking that would cause the crack to widen and the five pillars to crumble before His voice![8]

Revelation 3:12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name.

Matthew 15:23 But he did not answer her at all. And his disciples came and urged him, saying, “Send her away, for she keeps shouting after us.”

Amanda Grace (14 Aug 20): They have attempted to bring Isaac and Ishmael together in peace, oil and water says the Lord thy God this day. The only time Isaac and Ishmael EVER came together in peace was to bury their father Abraham, servant to the most high God, after they departed and were separated for at their foundations says the Lord they are completely different in theology, in their worship of Almighty God in their view of Israel my firstborn says the Lord God Jehovah.

Exodus 1:12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread, so that the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites.

Christian Harfouche (17 Aug 20): We will overflow! You will overflow! You will overflow!

Lovesick Scribe (17 Aug 20): Why am I sharing this? There is an urgency to see others come out from among this abuse and deception. There is an urgency to see leaders like the apostle I was under to repent and for God to extend mercy to him and others because many are being led astray by him. This is not unique to my situation as this is widespread like cancer. I believe that there are people in these types of movements who truly love the Lord Jesus, but they are being deceived. They are standing on the edge of a cliff and they do not realize it. They are listening to hired handlings, or even worse, ravenous wolves adorned in sheep’s clothing. They are getting lost in the experiences and the mystical encounters, and they are Biblically illiterate. They are being milked financially by such leaders with extrabiblical teachings in many different forms who view ministry as big business. The wool has been pulled over their eyes. I say that with all humility because I too was once in the same place.

Rick Joyner (18 Aug 20): The Salem witch trials were not instigated by the Puritans as some historians have said or implied, though some Puritans were involved in them. Actually, it was the Puritan leader Cotton Mather who led the protests against these trials and was instrumental in getting them stopped. Cotton was joined by his father, Increase Mather, who was president of Harvard College at the time. Their demands to end the madness of these trials came with such resounding clarity that the trials were not only stopped, but a great humility and repentance came over the colonies that led to important judicial changes that we benefit from today.

Jonathan Ngai (19 Aug 20): In 2018 we saw a thousand people from all around North America come for Hollywood Arise – a 72 hour worship and prayer gathering in a tent that was pitched right in front of the Gates of Babylon (a massive replica of the Ishtar Gate in ancient Babylon). For many years, this symbol in the heart of the city represented a stronghold that has kept many Believers away from Arts & Entertainment, and has impeded the upward progress of Kingdom voices to be released through TV, film, and movie space.

Peggy Morris (15 Aug 20): Nehemiah was a Babylonian captive, a cupbearer to the king (of Persia). As he inquired about the surviving Jews who had escaped and survived the captivity and also about Jerusalem, the response looked very bleak to him.

Daniel and Amber Pierce (19 July 2019): There is a new season coming of improved relationship with Israel among the nations, and as those relationships come into sync with the heart of God, a blessing will be decreed from the mouth of God over many lands and many waters! As the spirit of Persia arises, it will continue to cause the nations of this region to draw closer. There is a realignment taking place on the Arabian Peninsula and in the Arab nations that will bring many face-to-face with the God of Israel and the Lord of Hosts. I heard God speak to Yemen and say, “Peace be still!” and I heard Him speak to the strait of Hormuz and say, “Peace be still!”

Amanda Grace (14 Aug 20): I the Lord God work ALL things together for good for those who love God and are called according to HIS purpose, And in order to receive the benefits they have so fixated their eyes on they must severe a diseased branch of the Palestinians to do it, an ACT of betrayal has taken place in the Arab world and that Spirit of Esau will seek an ally to intimidate and derail a VERY fragile peace plan that has been fabricated on the foundations of MAN NOT BIBLICAL STANDARDS says the Lord God Jehovah.

Shofar So Great: You revealed yourself to your holy people at Mt. Sinai amid clouds of glory.  Your voice was heard in a mist of purity.  The whole world trembled before You, all creation stood in awe, when you our Sovereign, manifested Your presence to teach Your people Torah and Mitzvot.  Out of flaming fire, amid peals of thunder and flashes of lightning, amid blasts of the Shofar, You enabled them to hear Your divine words.

Jonathan Ngai (19 Aug 20): Cindy Jacobs, who was helping us to lead this time, went up on the platform on the first night and decreed that “The Kingdom Creatives are now being released into Arts & Entertainment”! She came down and said to Sharon and me, “Did you feel that? The atmosphere just shifted!” Everyone felt it in the tent. Within 15 minutes, rain starting pouring down on the tent accompanied with some massive thunder strikes. The forecast for the weekend was hot and sunny and it hadn’t rained in LA for 9 months. The atmosphere had shifted.

Exodus 1:13 The Egyptians became ruthless in imposing tasks on the Israelites,

Wanda Alger (17 Aug 20): “But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task, until I went into the sanctuary of God; then I discerned their end.” (Psalm 73:16-17 ESV)

Brat to Wanda (17 Aug 20): This word came in this morning to confirm your word:

Christian Harfouche (17 Aug 20): We have for 12 years now—in prayer, in study, and in preparation together—taken on this challenge that would endeavor to bring about the agenda of the enemy on the planet. We’ve taken it on, and we have won this battle already before it has manifested.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (18 Aug 20): “The Jewish people suffer from amnesia,” Rabbi Kahana said. “We forget who we are. This comes from sadness because we have no pride left. But we have an important job in the world: to bring the Torah and to bring Geula (redemption). The time has come for Geulah. But some Jews, especially the ones who stayed behind in exile, run away because they are ashamed of being Jews.”

Peggy Morris (15 Aug 20): “They told me, “The exile survivors who are left there in the province are in bad shape. Conditions are appalling. The wall of Jerusalem is still rubble; the city gates are still cinders.” (Neh. 1:3 MSG)

Exodus 1:14 and made their lives bitter with hard service in mortar and brick and in every kind of field labor. They were ruthless in all the tasks that they imposed on them.

Amanda Grace (14 Aug 20): This is about worshipping allah on Holy Land, laying the bricks that will eventually pave the way for the events to unfold spoken of By My servant Daniel.

Vince Amlin (18 Aug 20): “If you, God, kept record of sins, God, who could stand?”

Binyomin Adilman: “Go to the ant, you lazy one, consider her ways and become wise. She has no ruler or overseer, yet she prepares her sustenance in the summer; gathering in her food during the harvest.” (Proverbs 6:6-8)

Daniel 2:35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were all broken to pieces and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.

Binyomin Adilman: Tzadikim are totally consumed by their passion for serving G‑d, learning His Torah, performing His commandments and loving their fellow Jews. Their entire bodies, all their bones and muscles are dedicated to this purpose, and they are therefore never satisfied with their level of divine service. They constantly endeavor to improve and refine it. The wicked are the opposite: they never really consider that their crooked ways have a hold on them, and they always imagine themselves to be tzadikim.

Helen Calder (19 Aug 20): Keep a Record of What God Says

“So they gathered it [the manna] every morning, every man according to his need. And when the sun became hot, it melted.” (Ex 16:21 NKJV)

Vince Amlin (18 Aug 20): I’m guilty of all of these. I’m guilty, with the authors of innumerable op-eds, blogposts, and think pieces, of wringing my hands and asking, “Has cancel culture gone too far?”

Helen Calder (19 Aug 20): God gave the bread, but the people still had to gather the bread, because uncollected manna would melt away.
This is the life of relationship and partnership. Our Father gives, we gather!

Brat: MORE Arc Speak to “Who Gathers” 16 Aug 20?

Proverbs 18:13 To answer before listening—
that is folly and shame.

14 The human spirit can endure in sickness,
but a crushed spirit who can bear?

Lance Wallnau (17 Aug 20): If you died with Christ, why do you still subject yourself to earthly, religious rituals? They are of no use in stopping the indulgence of the flesh. The only thing that can stop human nature from indulging itself in its sensual, selfish interests, obsessions, and appetites, is to be made alive in the spirit and live in communion with that reality.

Pastor Steve Dittmar (18 Aug 20): Humility in prayer is bowing our hearts (knees) and lifting our hands with an honest heart. Humility is seeking Christ’s face and turning toward Christ and away from our self-righteousness. Our dependence upon Him and returning to Him unlocks heaven’s response. The Lord hears, forgives our sin, and brings healing to our land.[9]

God to Sophia Valentina Buller (19 Aug 20): Once Jubilee makes things right and becomes humble, remove your one star review of them for I Had you share the one star review for their disobedience to MY Will and MY Word. Once they obey ME, humble themselves, and change, you can have fellowship with Jubilee again and remove the negative review. 💗💗💗 Once Jubilee rights their wrongs, all of their negative reviews will change. 💗💗💗 Jubilee needs to take full responsibility for their actions. 💗💗💗 Jubilee needs to preach My word in context from the Bible. 💗💗💗 Jubilee needs to give back what was stolen. 💗💗💗 Jubilee needs to cast off abusers not excuse them. 💗💗💗 Jubilee needs to publicly, online, in person, and on TV, admit their faults and clear your name MY darling princess Sophia. 💗💗💗 Until they restore your wealth, admit their faults, clear your name, start preaching MY Word over their opinions, all negative reviews will stay, and will INCREASE in Jesus Name. 🔥🔥🔥 When the thief is caught, they MUST pay 7-fold, even if it costs them the abundance of their house, in Jesus Name. 🔥🔥🔥 IT IS FINISHED IN JESUS NAME. 🔥🔥🔥

Rick Joyner (18 Aug 20): Jesus demonstrated almost unlimited grace to sinners, even those “caught in the act,” but He had no tolerance for the self-righteous. The Mathers fought the great injustice of the witch trials with these truths, and the presiding judge in the trials repented publicly. The stigma of the witch trials lasts to this day, but so has the devotion to due process and raising the bar high for convictions to “beyond a reasonable doubt.” So, this madness actually resulted in a greater good—a great treasure of wisdom and knowledge.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (18 Aug 20): “It was reasonable for Trump to expect some acknowledgment or gratitude,” Rabbi Glick said. “Trump stated that he would not tolerate any terrorism. This affected Jews and non-Jews as well as Israel. This is something that liberals should support and praise.”

Yehudah Glick (19 Aug 20): The voice of God on Mount Sinai; The sound of liberty in the Jubilee year; The ammunition in the hands of Joshua’s people conquering Jericho and of Gidon’s army fighting the Midianites; The music of King David accompanying the Holy Ark to Jerusalem; The coronation ceremony of anointing King Solomon; The prophetic cry out to God in distress; Victories, rituals, sanctification, inaugurations, going to war, assembling the People, burial; From the heralding call declaring the redemption of Zion, Jerusalem and Israel all the way to ushering in The Messiah.

Amanda Grace (14 Aug 20): A MAJOR EVENT out of Israel when Rosh Hashanah, the feast of trumpets, is upon them that is going to shake up these alliances and even greater lines shall be drawn.

Shofar So Great: All inhabitants of the world, all dwellers on earth: look when the Shofar is sounded, listen. On that day a Great Shofar will be sounded, and the exiles in Assyria and those cast away in the land of Egypt will come to bow down to the L~rd on the L~rd’s holy mountain in Jerusalem.

Exodus 1:15 The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah [which means ‘beautiful’] and the other Puah [which means ‘lass’],

Amanda Grace (14 Aug 20): This is the beginnings of Israel being seen as a honeypot by other nations, for they have taken notice and want to partake of its vast knowledge I the Lord God have given unto them, and the richness, and vast wealth that FLOWS forth from that land, and with economies and peoples suffering amidst the events that involved a created virus and a hit to the economies of the Arab world, they are now seeking an OASIS a honeypot, and their eyes have been lured in the direction of Israel.

Christian Harfouche (17 Aug 20): And we stand with our sons and daughters on the missionary field that are doctors, and alumni, and graduates that are worshipping the Lord in augmented ways—sometimes unable or not allowed—because of their pliability and willingness to be a blessing to their surroundings—they are not allowed to be loud or to sing or to utilize music.

Yehudah Glick (19 Aug 20): The Shofar is mentioned in the bible more than any other musical instrument.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (18 Aug 20): “Even in Israel, we allow rockets to fall on us.”

Steve Shultz: God wants to point out that mistakes the USA made in NOT sending missionaries to Japan should not be repeated during this crisis time with the country of Lebanon.

Shofar So Great: The L~rd will be revealed to them with a piercing Presence which will flash like lightning. The L~rd G~d will sound the Shofar and march amid the storm winds of the South. The L~rd of Hosts will defend them. – Zechariah 9:14-15

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz (18 Aug 20): At a campaign rally on Monday afternoon at an airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, President Trump made a remarkable statement.

“And we moved the capital of Israel to Jerusalem,” Trump said at the rally. “That’s for the evangelicals.”

Exodus 1:16 “When you act as midwives to the Hebrew women, and see them on the birthstool, if it is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, she shall live.”

Shofar So Great: Blessed are the people who know and understand the sounds of the Shofar; they shall walk in G~d’s light.

Wanda Alger (17 Aug 20): I continued to see this crumbling mountain, but then saw the true source of the shaking. The reason things are falling apart is not because the devil is at work. No – it’s because the saints of God are at work! For underneath this crumbling mountain was emerging ANOTHER MOUNTAIN. It was the Mountain of the House of the Lord that was rising up from the underground causing the whole earth to shake and quake!

Yehudah Glick (19 Aug 20): Now is your chance to get your own shofar from Jerusalem, while supporting our work to change facts on the Temple Mount and turning it into a House of Prayer for All Nations.
