Brokering Nineveh 19 Jan 21

24 Jan

Working Dates: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 to Sunday, January 24, 2021

[24 pages of reflective conversation anchored in the lectionary readings of Jonah 3:1-5, 10 for 3 Epiphany 24 Jan 2021]

Kaji Douša (23 Jan 21): There’s a misconception that the blues are all about sorrow. But that’s not true. The blues are about human experience. They explore the depth of human emotion. Rooted in the Black American experience in the Jim Crow South, the blues explore what it means to find joy and expression in the midst of … some stuff.

Judith Heman, MD: Why imagining the future feels impossible after long-term trauma

Johnny Enlow (17 Jan 21): Peace to everyone as we come into our great day of deliverance. God is at work and is incapable of ignoring the outpouring of prayers, petitions and tears on behalf of our nation and the nations. The cry to heaven is unprecedented. The world will soon know if God is God or if “the swamp” is God. As in 1 Kings 18 the people will say “the Lord He is God! The Lord He is God!” Open heavens tonight for dreams, visions and encounters of what He is about to do. Tell of them here when they come in.

Wanda Alger (19 Jan 21): God has already provided abundant evidence of His plans for this nation through years of words, dreams, visions, and supernatural encounters by both seekers and seers that cannot be dismissed or denied. The growing collection of prophetic dreams and visions from brothers and sisters around the world concerning God’s victory for our Republic cannot be ignored. There has been a supernatural element to this journey that is incredibly unnatural, unplanned, and unmistakable. I will not – indeed, I cannot – cast them aside simply because we don’t know the terms of their enforcement. Though God is unfailing in revealing His intentions, He rarely tells us when or how they will manifest.[1]

Rachel Hackenberg (17 Jan 21): I often wonder why God puts up with us.

Lana Vawser (05 Jan 21): “I am going to completely revamp things with My creativity in their assignments right now, and for this new era. The CREATIVE DOWNLOADS that they will receive from encountering Me and My heart are going to restore such JOY in their assignments. I am releasing creative strategies to them on such a deep level that many will look and say, ‘WOW, that is so fresh; it’s so NEW. I have NEVER seen that before.’[2]

UCC.org (16 Dec 20): Welcome to General Synod 33. Daily conversations about life and faith. Theme-based workshops. Creative, arts-based projects. Time to process what’s going on in the main sessions of General Synod. …

Kaji Douša (23 Jan 21): And in a time when misinformation – actually lies – run rampant, we need authenticity and truth more than ever.

Nahum 1:11 From you, Nineveh, has one come forth who plots evil against the Lord and devises wicked plans.

The Rev. Dr. Hannah Adams Ingram (20 Jan 21): One of our most basic human needs is the need to belong. In fact, this is one of the concepts I drill into my Intro to Religion class—why are people religious? We have lots of reasons to be religious, but a major reason is our need to belong. We are social. We need community! One of the downfalls of the human need to belong, however, is that people often shove some people out of the group to make clearer the boundary around it. We deal with the temptation of proving we belong by insisting those other people don’t belong. I am on the inside. I know what is going on. I belong here. This place, this circle, this church is for me.[3]

John Edgerton (22 Jan 21): Good Boundaries

Jane Hamon (in “Epiphany Reframing” 06 Jan 21): In 2021, God will use this current crisis to begin to set a powerful prayer initiative in motion that will take out Rahab, the chaos-dragon, and release a harvest of souls over the next decade. However, tensions with China will continue to increase through this decade as the enemy fights to hold onto what is his and to extend his dominion in the earth.

Brat: ANOTHER decade of fighting when there was no resolution after these last ten years of trying?  These are Laban-type tricks of deferring hope and the dragon knows those same tactics.

Archbishop of Canterbury (12 Jan 21): Keeping your distance is loving your neighbour.

Yung Pueblo: Love is not: I will give this to you if you do this for me.

Love is: I will give this to you so that you may shine.

Brat to Pastor Bruce Zachary (03/04/2012): I know that Fr. David did talk to his superiors.  They were supposed to act according to canon law.  It does say: “It’s in the national canons, Title III, Canon 30, section 3.  Bottom line here: IT’S UP TO THE BISHOP to set the process, procedure, requirements, etc.” [Emphasis mine.]  The bishops dropped the ball.  The regional bishop wrote me and said, “In our current structure people with your articulated call have no regular ministry.”  Their lack of adhering to law gave no support to Fr David, who, in turn, could give me no support.  So the journey continued to the other churches in order for more prophecy to be fulfilled.  Now, without loyalties to any denomination, I had the freedom to confront the archetypal Seven Churches.  And the issue is about fulfilling prophecy, and not about trying to determine if I’m nuts.  If I were certifiably nuts, the Churches would have had compassion and managed to sequester me in a psych hospital, but God has been protecting me just as He said He would. (Rev 12:14) It is the Spirit Who is telling the Churches to prepare for His return.  God won’t put “new wine in old wineskins.” (Mt 9:17) The Spirit must cut through the shame that is imprisoning the hearts of the Churches.  There were wrongs (and rights) done all along this journey with all the Churches.  Waiting six more months in hope that the Churches would come out of their own hiding places (ref Gen 3:7), would be allowing the churches to stew longer in their own shame, and would deny God the opportunity of restoring balance to His kingdom.  And it would be cruel to the Churches to allow the shame to continue oppressing them.  The authentic Church must intervene to clear the shame of wrongs.  The Seven Churches should have acted, and they did Nothing.  The Great Oops.  The bishop did the greatest oops of all and just led the way for others to follow.  Who goes up against a bishop?

Rabbi YY Jacobson (21 Jan 21): For some, time is just an endless flow, a shapeless blob, a random stream that never ceases. A day comes and a day goes, and then another day comes and goes. Each day is the same as the day before, and they all add up to nothing.

Verse of the Day (19 Jan 21): So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. ~ Matthew 7:12 

Derrick Gates (18 Jan 21): “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke

Nomi Freeman: Am I a treasure or a burden? Sometimes you say you love me, and sometimes you say I drive you crazy. Then I wonder if you are happy I was born . . . [4]

Pastor Steve Dittmar (19 Jan 21): For years I have known that in the New Covenant, God supersized everything. From the Mercy seat, now we have the throne of grace. In Jesus, our high priest, we have a better hope, a better covenant, established on better promises. He is the better sacrifice. (Hebrews 7:19, 22; 8:6; 9:23)[5]

Jonah 3:1 The word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time, saying,

Deborah Perkins (18 Jan 21): I hear the Lord saying, “I am now raising up My “Abigails;” women who are uniquely positioned in both character and circumstances to broker peace, to bring forth solutions, to avert disasters, and to restore hope.”[6]

When Light Came In (22 Jan 21): Love is not a business deal. It’s not a tally sheet. It’s not a tool of control, manipulation or blackmail. It is not one sided in a committed relationship. It is not so delicate that normal daily life can break it.

The Rev. Mashaun D. Simon: First things first, I can talk for hours if you let me. But here is the thing, when it comes to putting together words about me in written form, I always struggle. In the simplest of terms, I am a lover of words, think all of the time, and I love to read.

Kevin Zadai (24 Jan 21): Jesus spoke this to me in person when I was with Him during a heavenly visitation. I met Him when I died on the operating room table in 1992. Jesus said, “Kevin, you will be held accountable for every idle word that you speak.” When I got back, I had to go and look that up because I did not know it was in the Bible, and I loved to talk![7]

Rabbi Curt Landry (24 Jan 21): It is important to understand that the gift of prophecy is not “foretelling of the future” like many think. Instead, the gift of prophecy is an encouraging word and is meant to bring clarity to its recipients.[8]

Wanda Alger (19 Jan 21): When I asked the Lord about His timing yesterday, He gave a one-word answer, “PROXIMITY.” He reminded me of the story of Abraham about to sacrifice Isaac, and also about Samson in the temple. Both these events give us clues to the critical importance of being in proximity to the breakthrough. The ram in the thicket was only found after Abraham raised his knife over Isaac. What seemed to be a painful walk up that mountain proved to be the journey to God’s lifeline. Samson could only fulfill his destiny to destroy God’s enemies when he was placed in the center of the temple, right in the middle of their demonic revelry. Their public ridicule of God’s chosen vessel ended up being a trap that forever ended their wicked rule.

Rabbi YY Jacobson (21 Jan 21): Comes the Midrash and says, “When G-d chose His world, He established ‘heads of months’ and ‘heads of years.’” For the world to become a chosen place, a desirable habitat, a place worth living in, a place that G-d not only created but chose, we must grant the endless flow of time the dignity of purpose. Every day ought to have a productive objective, every month—a meaningful goal, every year—a dynamic rhythm. The world G-d chose and desired was one in which humanity learns to confer meaning on time, to utilize it for constructive and beneficial endeavors. A meaningful life is a life in which every day is filled with meaningful choices and experiences, utilized to promote goodness and justice.

The Rev. Dr. Hannah Adams Ingram (20 Jan 21): On Epiphany we celebrate that the Gospel includes the outsiders, that Christ did not come only for some, but for all. We experience this with the traveling Magi, who bring gifts from afar through a long journey to meet the Christ child. They are enthusiastic, recognizing the transformative power that has entered the world, seeing the miracle that not even all on the inside recognized. They even go to visit an insider, King Herod, to celebrate this new joy. Yet the insider, King Herod, cannot be trusted. He does not see this new birth as a time to celebrate transformation and embrace outsiders, but instead, it is a threat to his place, to his power.

Nahum 2:1 An attacker advances against you, Nineveh. Guard the fortress, watch the road, brace yourselves, marshal all your strength!

John Edgerton (22 Jan 21): Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? As God has said: “Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.” – 2 Corinthians 6:14-17 excerpts (NIV)

Sophia Valentina Buller (23 Jan 21): Your gift has made ROOM for you and proven the enemy to be a liar 💥💥💥the enemy made a mistake by touching MY Annointed

Lance Wallnau (21 Jan 21): Have you seen that burning limo making the rounds on social media yesterday? Well guess what…That ball of fire was my limo! Can you believe it? Well here’s the story in a nutshell, a business man hired the limo for a group of us and I got out of the limo right before ANTIFA destroyed it. You know ANTIFA that festive group that thinks no party is complete with out a Molotov cocktail.[9]

Revelation 18:“When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her.

Lovesick Scribe (21 Jan 21): God has indeed spoken through His Word, and His Word says that if a prophet’s words do not come to pass, that prophet has spoken presumptuously. You are neither to listen to that prophet nor to be afraid of that prophet (Deuteronomy 18:22). You are not touching God’s anointed by testing prophetic utterances. 1 Corinthians 13:9 is misappropriated to excuse error, which is interesting because if we apply the prophetic illogic presented to excuse error, the knowing in part was unknown and not prophesied in part, and it is evident in the words released. Respectfully, this misappropriation of Scripture needs to stop. Furthermore, the church is not to blame for failed prophecies, but we are responsible for perpetuating and excusing such conduct. If I could offer one piece of Biblical counsel as a former false prophet, it would be to open the Bible and read it. Stop listening to these people. Do not fear them. Fear God. There is a cure to this prophetic pandemic. It is sound Biblical teaching rooted in the Word of God. [10]

Revelation 22:10 Then he told me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this scroll, because the time is near. 

Lance Wallnau (21 Jan 21): Let’s have an honest conversation about what happened, where we are and where we go next.

Nomi Freeman: I don’t learn from lectures, and punishment leaves me resentful. I’m constantly observing you and absorbing from you, so if you show me love and kindness, I’ll want to be like you. Then, if I do something wrong, you can talk to me about it and explain the right way to do things.

Bill Lackie (19 Jan 21): Some of us have been waiting on God when God is waiting on us. When we flow with this new authority, we will also flow in respect and love to the God-given authority given to others, and especially the spiritual authority that God has placed us under. Step into your boldness, but remain in placement within this “LAST DAYS” army.[11]

Wanda Alger (18 Jan 21): I feel some holy boldness rising up in me today!

Nahum 2:5 Nineveh summons her picked troops, yet they stumble on their way. They dash to the city wall; the protective shield is put in place.

Steve Shultz (18 Jan 21): Have you ever had someone come a bit late and you were so relieved when they showed up that you exclaimed, “IT’S ABOUT TIME!”

When Light Came In (18 Jan 21): It’s almost paralyzing, sometimes, even after years of work on healing and recovery, or even seasons of peace. The idea that we can trust anything beyond this moment feels uncomfortable, impossible. From simple – what to make for dinner, what to read for free time — to complex — choosing a tax accountant, deciding to apply for a promotion — it’s all the same. It is sandpaper in our spirit. If we just stay still, it won’t hurt or become too much.

Matthew Laney (21 Jan 21): Have you ever tried to be completely still? You’d sooner sprout wings and fly.

When Light Came In (22 Jan 21): Scripture says it [love] is patient, kind, not selfish or proud or rude. It doesn’t keep score. Instead it protects, trusts, and perseveres. It does not fail.

Nomi Freeman: Make me feel safe enough to make mistakes.

The Rev. Mashaun D. Simon: But I think we have an opportunity to perceive where we are and where we have been differently. What was it that you needed time for? What was it that you learned about yourself, about others, about life, and about where you are and where you want to be?

Steve Shultz (18 Jan 21): We are at a moment in time where we must choose NOT to say, “Business as usual.”

Kris Vallotton (23 Jan 21): How I processed my inaccurate prophetic word (your top questions answered)

Brat (in “Stand Off” 16 Jan 21): The book club, self-righteousness, gaslighting, and timing, all stirred up into a perfect storm inside of me.  It felt like an ambush.  I had seen Kris Vallotton’s piece in my inbox long after I’d journaled about my inner peace being hijacked with Rabbi YY’s essay.  Both men’s efforts were dripping with something very wrong, not right, toxic, and wormy, and I suddenly felt extremely nauseous.  It came as a double whammy!  I could not entertain whatever spirit was attached to those emails.  It was intolerable!  I cocked both hammers on the double barrel shotgun.

Rabbi YY Jacobson (21 Jan 21): Is Time a Storm in Which We Are All Lost?

Deborah Perkins (18 Jan 21): These “Abigails” have had the foresight to study their enemies, know their strategies, and advance ahead of demonic attacks to ambush those who have come against them. They have listened to the Lord and chosen to move forward in faith instead of cowering in fear. They will have their reward! 

Nate Johnston: In the vision I was drawn to the fact that in these hands were given a key ring with two keys on them. Then I heard the Lord say “It’s the DOUBLE-DOUBLE!” Double what? I asked the Lord? “Double access and double restoration!” I heard Him reply. This vision was both the declaration of new access, possession of the promise, and new authority, as well as the return of what was stolen illegally. So many have been illegally robbed in many areas of their lives but it’s ALL coming back! 

When Light Came In (18 Jan 21): If we’re from a Christian background, we find a way to make this a spiritual thing. We tell ourselves we’re doing what Jesus said: don’t worry about tomorrow, it can worry about itself. Except we’re not *really* doing that, we’re beyond worry. We’re frozen.

Rick Joyner (19 Jan 21): Then we need to keep the weeds out, the “cares and worries” of this world that would choke the seed. We are told in Philippians 4:6 to: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Anxiety is the opposite of faith. Faith is the nutrition of the fruit of the Spirit, and therefore anxiety can starve what we are cultivating to prevent its growth. So, when we see fear, anxiety, or discord attack our garden we must be ready to counter this with the peace of God, faith in Him, and words that promote these. If we do this with anxiety, it will likely cause us to overreact and also cause damage to what we have been cultivating.[12] 

Rabbi YY Jacobson (21 Jan 21): You can live a productive life, mark your days with worthy objectives. Your life has rhythm. You have a morning, a night, a lunch break, a weekend, and a vacation.

Pastor Steve Dittmar (19 Jan 21): We hold fast to our confession of hope, because He who promised is faithful. Jesus, our High Priest, is merciful and faithful, and able to help us in testing. (Hebrews 10:21-23; 2:17-18)

Brat Journal (in “Stand Off” 16 Jan 21): And then all at once by God’s grace everything was calm in the eye of the dust devil.

1 Corinthians 6:12 “All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are beneficial. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything.

Matthew Laney (21 Jan 21): When Jesus stilled the storm, he brought creation to a standstill, to the point of “dead calm,” which might have been the brink of non-existence, something only the Creator could pull off. That’s the point: Jesus had those creds.

Nomi Freeman: We all make mistakes. Smart people learn from their mistakes and try not to repeat them.

Deborah Perkins (18 Jan 21): God is bringing women to the front lines who can not only defeat the enemy’s lies with their creative strategies, but who can speak destiny into the hearts of those who know Him! Their bravery will inspire the toughest of men, reminding them of what God has called them to do and sidelining the enemy’s plans to take them out.

The Rev. Dr. Hannah Adams Ingram (20 Jan 21): I am struck by the idea that the Magi tried to include King Herod, building a bridge between outsiders and insiders around this new birth, this new joy to the world, this new reign of peace and justice. I am further struck that they realized he was not to be trusted through a dream, and afterwards, affirmed their own sense of self-knowledge by prioritizing what they learned from the dream. What can we gain from this story?

Rick Joyner (19 Jan 21): Man was created for four basic purposes as we see in Genesis. The first, and most important, was to walk with God and have fellowship with Him. This should likewise be our main pursuit every day. He does not just want to be someone we spend a little time praying to or studying about each day, but He created us for His pleasure and fellowship. We are called to abide in Him as He abides in us and walks with us to be a part of all that we do. 

Prism Ministries (19 Jan 21): God loves us sooo dearly. He wants us to feel like His one and only, all the time! I think it’s a little different for women than it is for men. We are His girls. We are His cherished ones. And, if we let Him, He will tell us which relationships are good for us and which ones are not. The truth is, God can be this person for us, even if we are looking for that “special someone”, in the natural.[13]

Deborah Perkins (18 Jan 21): The Lord has highlighted these “Abigails” as being the “Gems Among Swords” I have seen in previous visions (click here). They are intelligent, honorable women whose inner hearts radiate the beauty of the Lord; priceless ones who have taken the time to know their true Husband and Savior. Their vessels are full of oil! They are versatile and ready for anything; even on a moment’s notice they will respond to the voice of the Lord, bringing heaven’s solutions to bear in difficult situations. 

Rabbi YY Jacobson (21 Jan 21): The Rebbe said one more thing to these girls about their academic studies. Some of us study the sciences and see them merely as interesting data, raw facts. However, much of humanity has come to appreciate that when we study biology, physics, history, or math it must be with a productive and meaningful purpose—to make the world a better place, to enhance life on our planet, and to promote justice and compassion.

Bill Lackie (19 Jan 21): When you align yourself you are taking what you know in your head, aligning it with your soul (mind, will and emotions), covering it with your spirit and the Spirit of God, and establishing it in your body (your position today, now, and with those around you).

Jonah 3:2 “Get up, go to Nineveh, that great city, and proclaim to it the message that I tell you.”

Danielle Dixon (19 Jan 21): I believe the Lord is telling us to stay focused on the Kingdom during all the disappointment and “doom and gloom.” Nothing changes the timelines of God – not politics, economic markets or popularity poles. God’s timelines were established before the foundations of the world.[14]

Chuck D. Pierce (23 Jan 21): “What’s been sealed up, what’s been held back – your movement in the earth realm with Me – is beginning to create heat. That which has been sealed up above you is now beginning to melt. Get ready, for I am ready to come through and come down and move in you in a new way. I say to the United States, I am beginning to turn you upright. Get ready, for My people are rising up with a sound that will cause things that are overturned to turn back right again.[15]

John Edgerton (22 Jan 21): I’ve heard the 2 Corinthians passage used (misused, actually) to forbid Christians from marrying non-Christians. Used as a kind of proof-texting cudgel, this passage sounds as if Christians are righteous and non-Christians are wicked. To follow this logic, I really should be separating myself from anyone who is not a Christian, lest I be morally polluted.

Sophia Valentina Buller (23 Jan 21): NO YE WICKED ONES WHO WILL NO LONGER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY AS RIGHTEOUS ONES IN THE COMMUNITY, POLLUTING OTHERS NAMES FOR YOUR OWN GOOD, YE WICKED ONES HAVE NO MORE BREATH IN YOUR LUNGS TO CURSE MY ANOINTED ONES IN JESUS NAME ⚡⚡⚡

Chuck D. Pierce (23 Jan 21): “Receive New Breath! The Lord Is Starting the Sorting!”

Nahum 2:7 It is decreed that Nineveh be exiled and carried away. Her female slaves moan like doves and beat on their breasts.

Nomi Freeman: And if I’m rebelling, please investigate; something might be bothering me.

Prism Ministries (20 Jan 21): Has anybody ever made you mad? Like seething, fuming angry? Or has anyone done something to you or someone else that has hurt you? We all have to deal with offenses – we are human! It’s been said before about churches, “You need to be a Christian to survive in church.” We all have faults and scars. We are all imperfect. The fact of the matter is, none of us are immune to hurting someone else. But, how do we overlook offense that caused us hurt or harm? [16]

Pastor Fah (20 Jan 21): Get the How Out of Here!

Brat: And take responsibility for the offense rather than just perpetually overlooking it.

Sophia Valentina Buller (21 Jan 21): The wicked DID NOT get away with the evil done to you MY darling princess Sophia ⚡⚡⚡ don’t worry 💗💗💗I AM HERE AND I AM MAKING THINGS RIGHT IN JESUS NAME 💥💥💥

Karen Hardin and Kim Potter (20 Jan 21): Kathryn – We are in a Season of Betrayal

Verse of the Day (21 Jan 21): Galatians 6:Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

Steve Shultz (23 Jan 21): Sometimes, with a prophetic word, God speaks in a sort of “code” so that we can search it out and believe for it to come to pass in whatever form the Lord has in mind.

Lovesick Scribe (21 Jan 21): I say that this is a prophetic reckoning because literally dozens of prophetic words surrounding this historical moment were recorded and made available to the masses for spiritual consumption. It was a prophetic pandemic, and it has sickened the church. There is no shortage of these proclamations, and none of them were correct. None.  You can even find compilations of these failed prophecies online, which provides even more clarity of the serious error having occurred. As someone who came out of this movement, I have some things to say. Though I will likely be labeled a Judas, Jezebel, or having a religious spirit for saying what I am about to say, it really does not matter. I am not here to win over the masses. That desire died the day I came to terms that I was a false prophet and I had been deceived by false teaching while deceiving others.  Erroneous name calling will also not silence me. I love the Lord Jesus Christ more than I do the opinions of others, and I care more about your eternal soul than about your feelings or opinions of me.

Nomi Freeman: If you call me a brat, rude, chutzpadik, stupid . . . I might grow up to fit exactly that description.

Amy Sutherland (20 Jan 21): Death precedes a miraculous resurrection![17]

Randy Alcorn: What Does It Look Like to Be a Cross Bearer?

When Light Came In (22 Jan 21): That’s not a relationship. That’s abuse.

Karen Hardin and Kim Potter (20 Jan 21): We are in a season of betrayals and betrayers. We should beware that we don’t find ourselves unwittingly on the wrong side of the equation. 

Sophia Valentina Buller (23 Jan 21): NO ONE CAN PROJECT THEIR FAULTS AND NEGATIVE CHOICES/TRAITS ONTO YOU ANYMORE MY DARLING PRINCESS SOPHIA 🌈🌈🌈 THIS IS MY PROMISE TO YOU MY DARLING PRINCESS SOPHIA 🌈🌈🌈

Jennifer Eivaz (23 Jan 21): Different spirits require different strategies in deliverance ministry.[18]

Vince Amlin (24 Jan 21): Faith looked like a singular, dramatic act. A moment of daring. A test of courage.

Sophia Valentina Buller (21 Jan 21): EVIL INTERCESSION TO JOIN YOU AND CAROL IS REMOVED FROM THE ATMOSPHERE AND IS JUDGED IN JESUS NAME 🔥🔥🔥

Prism Ministries (20 Jan 21): Although we need to set boundaries and confront situations that may cause us further harm, sometimes the best prescription is grace. The person may not be in a mental state to see what they are doing. Sometimes the person doesn’t have the emotional or spiritual maturity yet to see what they are doing that’s wrong or hurtful. This doesn’t mean boundaries are not in order. Perhaps, by the Holy Spirit’s leading, we can talk to them about what was done and how it could have been handled differently. But, “it is our glory to overlook the offense.” (Proverbs 19:11)

Brat: Leave her alone!  You do not know the hell she went through.  It is not safe to reconcile with narcissism.  Not all relationships can be reconciled at their point of injury.  Even after Jesus’ resurrection He did not return to the Sanhedrin.

John Edgerton (22 Jan 21): This is not easy stuff. Where do I draw these boundary lines? If I draw them too narrowly, I find myself in an echo chamber. Draw them too widely, however, and I find myself breaking bread with those who are actively hurting my loved ones.

Nomi Freeman: I might not always do as you say, but most likely I’ll say as you say and I’ll do as you do.

Nahum 3:1 Woe to the city of blood, full of lies, full of plunder, never without victims!

Sophia Valentina Buller (23 Jan 21): I HAVE AVENGED YOU MY DARLING PRINCESS SOPHIA 🔥🔥🔥 I PROMISE I HAVE AVENGED YOU MY DARLING PRINCESS 🔥🔥🔥

Prism Ministries (24 Jan 21): Though it is a figure of speech, “being good” brings up an important point. You might have heard it said before: No matter how admirable it is, good doesn’t get us into heaven. That seems kind of harsh, doesn’t it? However, Jesus wasn’t interested in good. He made the statement “only God is good”, because only God is perfect, and no one on earth is perfect. The Pharisees got tripped up on this point. After all, they did all the right things! They were “good” people. But, they completely missed the boat when they encountered Jesus. He was the truth. He was their salvation – and they didn’t even recognize Him.[19]

Vince Amlin (24 Jan 21): But if you’re up there, hearing the Spirit’s voice and dizzy with the height, don’t be afraid. Step out. Take a risk for Love. There are people down here with good, sturdy nets ready to catch you.

Deborah Perkins (18 Jan 21): When disaster has hovered close, these women have seen solutions, not problems, and been ready with weapons of compassion, understanding, gentleness, humility, and provision which have sidelined the enemy in his pursuit of their homes and their emotions. What the adversary intended to use against them, they have acknowledged and brought to the cross, and have received mercy to help in times of need. 

When Light Came In (22 Jan 21): 👆If you are from a strong background of faith, may I emphasize a key truth, as a faith sister? BOTH partners are held to this standard. This is the model, the expectation. Of BOTH people.

Pastor Steve Dittmar (19 Jan 21): What does all this have to do with obtaining mercy and grace to help?

Lana Vawser (05 Jan 21): Creativity in Assignments Will Erupt!

The Rev. Dr. Hannah Adams Ingram (20 Jan 21): I am reflecting on the idea that outsiders might recognize truth that insiders miss. I am reflecting on the idea that outsiders might be the ones that offer invitations, even when rejected by insiders. I am reflecting on the idea that outsiders might bring truth that supersedes what the insiders know to be true—that King Herod is not their king, and so going against his wishes because they have discerned a truth outside of him is a reality made possible due only to their outside status.

When Light Came In (22 Jan 21): There are seasons where it’s one-sided. Seasons when someone is ill or facing a deadline or when we just straight-up act selfish and need to apologize.

Rabbi YY Jacobson (21 Jan 21): Yet, our ultimate calling is to see all of our studies, all branches of wisdom, as an instrument to transform our world and our lives into an abode for the Divine infinite reality, to infuse all aspects of our lives with true and timeless meaning, with everlasting love and holiness, by revealing that ultimately, we are all one, and everything is part of that oneness. [20]

Vince Amlin (24 Jan 21): Maybe I missed them. Or waited too long to take the plunge. But my faith life has turned out to look more like mending nets. Working with others to weave them tighter and stronger. Filling in the gaps. Steady labor. Undramatic.

Sophia Valentina Buller (23 Jan 21): EVEN WHEN YOU DON’T YET SEE, IT IS DONE IN JESUS NAME 🔥🔥🔥 I PROMISE YOU MY DARLING PRINCESS SOPHIA THAT IT IS DONE IN JESUS NAME 🌈🌈🌈

Lana Vawser (05 Jan 21): “My people, as My creative strategies are released from My heart; take them and run with them in the ways that I lead you. The ‘never been done before’ creative strategies will require bold faith and courage, but do not be afraid, for where I guide, I provide, and My favor will explode upon your obedience.

Chuck D. Pierce (17 Jan 21): “There’s a new cadence. There’s a new sound. There’s a new movement. There’s an orchestra in the heavens that’s beginning to come down into the earth realm. This will set a new movement in the earth. Just when you thought you didn’t have the strength to express who I am in you, I can come through with one breath and cause everything in you to come alive again. I am breathing on you. Receive My breath, and strength will come alive!

Jonah 3:3 So Jonah set out and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly large city, a three days’ walk across.

Judith Heman, MD: Thinking of the future stirs up such intense yearning and hope that victims find it unbearable.  These emotions make them vulnerable to disappointment, and that will make them desperate.  So they focus on extremely limited goals and the future is reduced to a matter of hours or days.

Zechariah 5:6 I asked, “What is it?” He replied, “It is a basket.” And he added, “This is the iniquity of the people throughout the land.”

Chuck D. Pierce (17 Jan 21): “For a while, this will look like two baskets turned over. There will be difficulty in discerning what is good from the baskets and what is evil from the baskets. However, I will start the sorting. I will watch over the good. These will be times that the evil will mesh together and produce a fruit that has not been seen in modern times. The good will come to know Me in a way they have never known Me. The bad, new fruit will reject Me fully. These will be dealt with based upon their stewardship. Do not eat of the bad. Do not eat from the Tree of Good and Evil. Eat of My Tree of Life. I breathe LIFE into you today!”

Lana Vawser (05 Jan 21): “As this restoration of JOY in Me and their assignments takes place, I am bringing them into a new realm of CREATIVE DOWNLOADS in their assignments. Creativity will begin to explode as I show them the new ways of building with Me. The new ways of partnering with Me creatively in their assignments, in this new era, will ERUPT from My heart into their lives.

Donné Clement Petruska (18 Jan 21): Click the link to watch, pay attention to the COUNTRIES he prophesied about and see what you can find, what is God showing YOU?

Wanda Alger (19 Jan 21): We don’t need another prophetic word or dream about our future as a nation. He’s already spoken. The hardest part of this nail-biting journey is that it’s out of our hands. That’s why He says, “…so that when the day of evil comes, you will be able to stand your ground, and having done everything, to STAND” (see Ephesians 6:13). 

Exodus 10:1 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his officials so that I may perform these signs of mine among them

Rabbi Shaul Leiter (21 Jan 21): There is a remaining ethical question. How can Pharaoh be punished if he has no free will – and similarly, why does G‑d keep sending Moshe to warn and negotiate if the outcome is fixed and known?

When Light Came In (22 Jan 21): For 18 years I reminded myself of this. Especially at the end of our annual summer family camp week, when darkness pressed hard on my chest and I’d cry silently as he drove us home. After we’d spent a week around friends — couples who knew and loved each other… who were actually couples. I’d remind myself every marriage has its one-sided times. And I’d wonder when my side would ever matter.

Nomi Freeman: When you respect each other, I learn to respect you. When I see you resolving conflict in a friendly and considerate way, I learn to be altruistic and considerate. I learn that it’s possible to solve conflict without anger.

John Edgerton (22 Jan 21): In addition to being married to someone who is not a Christian, some of my most important professional relationships are with non-Christian faith leaders. One of my mentors, a man who taught me a lot about what pastoring is, was not a Christian much less a pastor. I’m not going to cut myself off from non-Christians just on account of this passage from 2 Corinthians.

Rabbi Curt Landry (24 Jan 21): Did you know that, according to the Bible, if you are a born-again Believer, you have access to the spiritual gift of prophecy? In fact, Scripture goes on to say that the Holy Spirit takes up permanent residence within you as part of your inheritance through your faith in Christ. He then distributes your spiritual gifts as He wills.

Deborah Perkins (27 July 2017): Their message will be one of “Peace, goodwill to men.” Indeed, they will broker deals between nations that men have been unable to accomplish, because of their purity of heart and their true love for these nations. For I am not a God of destruction, but of redemption. These silver-scrolled, even silver-haired women will reach people in nations they’ve never even heard of. Their influence will be so vast that man will say, “Who is she, and where did she come from?” And there will come a time when the gems and the swords are merged together, when armies of men will see that it is impossible to gain the victory with the strength of the Lord alone; they will take hold of the beauty of the Lord also, and there will be a balance restored in My Kingdom, a softening to the harsh messages of the past and a stirring of souls to the beauty of the Holy Place. [21]

Chuck D. Pierce (17 Jan 21): Justin Rana communicated with me today after he heard this word:

Justin Rana: I want to share what I saw with the basket prophecy you gave. I see that the outside of this “new fruit” has the word “unity” written all over it. But when you bite into the fruit, the flesh is made of the word “conformity.” True unity comes as One New Man. What the world thinks of as unity is actually conformity – where we all look, act, think, and speak the same. That is not what Kingdom looks like. We must not conform but unify as One New Man as the Lord continues to reveal HIS agenda.

Nomi Freeman: I need consistency in my world.

Prism Ministries (19 Jan 21): Sometimes it’s hard to believe how much God loves us because of what our experiences have taught us. But, the reality is, when we put God first in our lives and believe what He says, we can know His love and feel like His one and only.

Deborah Perkins (27 July 2017): While the world has been fighting for veterans’ rights and wounded warriors who have left the battlefield, these women have continued, persevered in battle, tapping into resurrection power that enabled them to rise repeatedly, hit after hit. They have been broken and yet repaired by supernatural means, for no one saw the difficulties they faced in those moments. They continued to fight for a cause beyond themselves, for something that yielded no immediate benefits, gave no salary, and earned them no worldly credentials. But I tell you, I KNOW THESE WOMEN’S NAMES! Their deeds are recorded in heaven on silver scrolls, etched into My memory as deeds of merit and great worth. They WILL be rewarded!

Hebrews 6:It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.

Kaji Douša (23 Jan 21): God still brings new life.

Lana Vawser (05 Jan 21): “The JOY that I am restoring to them in the deep place of intimacy is not dependent upon anything in the natural realm; it is found in this deep well of intimacy with Me. The battle has hindered intimacy with Me for many, but I am their Beloved, I am their Avenger, I am their Defender, and I am here to restore, I am here to revive, I am here to resurrect, I am here to realign, I am here to BREATHE MY LIFE into them again. It’s time for ‘these ones’ who have lost the joy of their assignment to be RESTORED to JOY and delight in partnering with Me in such deep ways.”

Steve Shultz (18 Jan 21): Well, if we say it with humility and sincerity, I know the Lord wants us to have the attitude of His “moves of restoration” in our lives – where we will say to Him joyfully: “It’s about TIME, LORD!”

Jonah 3:4 Jonah began to go into the city, going a day’s walk. And he cried out, “Forty days more, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!”

The Rev. Mashaun D. Simon: This is Jonah who, after all of that, finally submits to what God instructed and after being told a second time to go, he arrives in Nineveh to declare thus sayeth the Lord. After travelling a day’s distance, he cries out, “Forty days more, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!”[22]

Rabbi YY Jacobson (21 Jan 21): Depressing Time, Productive Time, Redemptive Time – New Essay by Rabbi YY

Rick Joyner (19 Jan 21): So why are so many Christians more devoted to temporal pursuits? It is an obvious lack of vision, wisdom, and understanding. Some have let their devotion to their jobs or professions eclipse their devotion to the Lord and His commandment to seek His kingdom first. Many would protest that they must work to provide for themselves and their families, but that is not in conflict with seeking the kingdom first. Neither is trying to do our jobs with excellence. The answer is not to spend less time at work, but to turn work into worship, doing all that we do as unto The Lord. 

Os Hillman (19 Jan 21): Why conflict is not bad, in fact, it is required for successful relationships.

Ryan LeStrange (18 Jan 21): My Monday Word for You…Pursue Peace!

Rabbi YY Jacobson (21 Jan 21): But you are still confined within the realm of a mortal, finite and frail universe. As wise men have said, Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them. Time is a storm in which we are all lost. Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back.

Bill Lackie (19 Jan 21): Going deeper in relationships is to start with “communication.” This way, the people God has connected you with can fully understand your view, your perspective, your actions and your impartation. Communication is a major key for all relationships. You don’t have to fully agree with everything that is said, but it is necessary for you to accept their views and pray for anything you know that represents a limitation for them.

Wanda Alger (19 Jan 21): Taking a stand for God’s purposes should not be motivated by stubbornness, but substance. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Heb 11:1)

Deborah Perkins (18 Jan 21): I see these women negotiating peace treaties; they are rising up to intercede, intervene, and mitigate the flow of judgment towards those who have NOT walked in cultures of honor, but have yielded to greed and jealousy in building their own empires. 

Charisma (19 Jan 21): Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

John Edgerton (22 Jan 21): Yet, Paul does have a point about separating myself from wickedness.

Os Hillman (19 Jan 21): How you are personally wired to respond to conflict in certain ways.

Nomi Freeman: When the two of you argue, I worry that you might separate, or something scary might happen.

The Rev. Mashaun D. Simon: What stands out to me is the amount of time God allows the people before God makes good on God’s threat. Think about it. If God wanted, God could have simply destroyed them when the thought crossed God’s mind. According to the text, their wickedness had come to the attention of God and so God decided their only recourse was to be destroyed. 

John Edgerton (22 Jan 21): There absolutely are people in the world who are walking paths of wickedness. And as a Christian, I should not be associating myself with such people.

Wanda Alger (18 Jan 21): “For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous, lest the righteous stretch out their hands to do wrong. Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts! But those who turn aside to their crooked ways the Lord will lead away with evildoers! Peace be upon Israel!” (Psalms 125:3-5)

Os Hillman (19 Jan 21): How to insure you maintain the relationship in a conflict.

Rabbi YY Jacobson (21 Jan 21): And yet the clock stops for nobody. “Suspect each moment, for it is a thief, tiptoeing away with more than it brings,” John Updike said. You may be sleeping, sipping a coffee, surfing the web, or getting angry at Trump or Biden, the clock is ticking away. How do we deal with the merciless reality of time?

The Rev. Mashaun D. Simon: God gave them time. God gave Jonah time and God gave the people of Nineveh time. God gave them all a moment to decide for themselves. Would they continue down the path they were going, or would they choose another path, another way of doing and being, and living in the world? Would they continue in their wicked ways, or would they choose honor, integrity, simplicity and a new way of being? What would they choose? 

Rabbi YY Jacobson (21 Jan 21): There are three ways, suggests the Midrash. There are three experiences of time: depressing time, meaningful time, and redemptive time. You choose in which time-zone you will breathe.

Bill Lackie (19 Jan 21): Conflict is the stage that you walk through where there are differences of ideas and beliefs. Conflict in these situations means different views. All marriages go through areas of conflict as they deepen in their God-given joining together. Conflict doesn’t mean that you divide or separate because you want things to be peaceful and easy. It is a call to deeper communication and a deeper UNDERSTANDING of the various aspects of the other person’s view. When you communicate and understand the beliefs and decisions through conflict (sharing your viewpoint), it allows you to deepen your relationship which will lead to COMMUNION.

The Rev. Dr. Hannah Adams Ingram (20 Jan 21): I think all of us can resonate with the sense of being an outsider in an insider space. I did not grow up in a denominational setting, so sometimes I feel like an outsider in denominational church spaces. And yet, there is a deeper level to the insider/outsider status that is rooted in justice and oppression in our world. So now, I turn to a reading of this story through the lens of prioritizing those on the margins. We read through the lens of those on the margins not only because we see a grown-up Jesus doing that time and time again, but because we see through Epiphany that those on the margins have a full story they are living, too. They might even invite us into their narrative if we are receptive to the invitation.

Brat (24 Jan 21): I invite you into our narrative.  And I’d love to hear back from you.

Nomi Freeman: I love it when you make time for us to spend together.

The Rev. Mashaun D. Simon: Now, let’s be clear. In no way am I suggesting that they, or us for that matter, have the ability to change God’s minds with our actions. There is no way of knowing whether or not our choices, our actions, our ways of being truly impact God’s choices. Yes, it is something that has been taught to us from generation to generation. But there is a danger in suggesting such theology because such theology sometimes leads us to believe that the trials and tribulations we all face in life are our fault. 

Rick Joyner (in “Focus Group” 13 Jan 21): We are entering the darkest times the world has ever known, and is even called “the great time of trouble” and “the great tribulation.” We are also entering the time when the greatest glory of The Lord will be revealed through His people. It will be the time of the greatest joy as we behold His righteous works and His righteous judgments. 

Brat: We have already been going through the time of The Great Tribulation, as anyone who has been following along can attest.  The only reason that I can think of which would prevent closure on this epoch is that those leading us were not listening, so then we’d have to repeat it.  Do you really want to put that upon our children?

Rabbi Shaul Leiter (21 Jan 21): This week’s Torah portion, Bo, opens with G‑d telling Moshe to warn Pharaoh about the plague of locusts. G-d also tells Moshe that Pharaoh will not heed the warning because, “I have hardened his heart in order that you will tell your children and children’s children how I have acted fearsomely with Egypt” (Shemot/Exodus 10:2).

Kevin Zadai (24 Jan 21): Religious leaders are so used to us being beaten down, but as Christians, we are greater than anyone who came before us because of Jesus Christ. In the Kingdom, we are even greater than those who built the foundation. I do not think that I am greater than Moses, but at the Jordan River, Jesus basically was saying that everyone in the Kingdom from then on [would be] greater.

Chuck D. Pierce (23 Jan 21): The Lord is starting the sorting! He is releasing a new movement, a new sound, a new cadence, and a new army – and you are part of it! In the midst of what you have been going through, I declare you will feel His new wind of strength and life rising up within you!

Nomi Freeman: I want to please you and make you proud. Please give me positive feedback often.

Ryan Johnson (22 Jan 21): Peacekeepers want to remain neutral at any cost, never appearing to be controversial. Whereas we all need to understand that peacemaking is not the absence of conflict. Peace (according to the Bible) should never be confused with pacifism, and/or the avoidance of strife. As Christians, we are never instructed to run from conflict (even in turning the other cheek). Peacemakers don’t put their heads in the sand, hoping that the conflict will end because of their silence. This modern idea of peace at any price is nowhere near any biblical command. Any leader in the Church today who is willing to skim over problems in order to act like everything is alright, when it is not, is not a peacemaker. So, what are we to do?[23]

Nahum 3:7 All who see you will flee from you and say, ‘Nineveh is in ruins—who will mourn for her?’ Where can I find anyone to comfort you?”

Sophia Valentina Buller (22 Jan 21): I AM FIGHTING For you MY darling princess Sophia 😘😘😘 I AM Showing EVERYONE the TRUTH 🕊️🕊️🕊️I AM Working on the stubborn hearts to see the TRUTH 🔥🔥🔥

Nomi Freeman: Please remember how difficult it is to change. Help me work on one thing at a time. I can’t change all my faults at once.

Rick Joyner (19 Jan 21): We should see every place we are compelled to spend time as fields we have been given to cultivate and bring forth life. As we are told in James 5:7, “The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains.” As a farmer must be patient to sow the seed at the proper time, we too must be patient to wait for the right time to sow seeds of truth, not forcing them where they do not fit.  

Rabbi YY Jacobson (21 Jan 21): Each of us must choose in which “time zone” we will live. Do I live in a “depressing time,” letting my days and nights pass without meaning? Do I elevate my days into worthwhile experiences? Or, in my ultimate calling, do I turn each day into a redemptive experience, into a conduit for infinity?

Nomi Freeman: If I was at fault, please don’t blame me. I feel bad enough already. Help me learn by asking, “What do you think you could have done better?” and “How do you think you can fix things now?”

Perets Auerbach: The point is that G‑d in His love is so concerned about fixing the soul that He always provides a means for its repair. The best thing is if one takes the initiative to fix himself through teshuvah. If not, Providence still steps in and shuffles the life-cycle. This requires an even greater juggling of destiny than if one repents. Therefore, it comes from Abba, a higher source than Imma.3[[24]]

Jonah 3:5 And the people of Nineveh believed God; they proclaimed a fast, and everyone, great and small, put on sackcloth.

John Edgerton (22 Jan 21): To be clear, I 100% disagree with that idea.

Lovesick Scribe (21 Jan 21): My allegiance and your allegiance are not to men. It is to God, to Jesus Christ, the One who is our Prophet, Priest, and King. In these last days, God has spoken to us by His Son (Hebrews1:2). I have no obligation to listen to words proven to be false, and neither do you, and neither myself nor anyone else calling into question a self-professing prophet’s words is coming against God. That is manipulative, self-serving, and frankly, it is dangerous to say such a thing because modern day prophecy is now being placed on par with the canon of Scripture, and prophets are being placed on par with God. The church is being told by some of these professing prophets that it is the church’s fault for not praying enough, for not fasting enough, which essentially says that man’s will and works can override the Sovereign will of God. But some things do not make sense. If the authority of these prophets is so powerful, why aren’t their prayers equally powerful? Why do they put conditions on the prophecies, saying that something will only come to pass if you do something? It would seem to be a way to avoid responsibility and fallibility.

When Light Came In (20 Jan 21): They’ll respond from their wants, needs, control, manipulation. Every time will be a little sad, because we’re human and we wouldn’t respond the way they do. It shocks, we lose balance for a minute, then regain our footing.

Deborah Perkins (18 Jan 21): These “Abigails” are true discerners who see the difference between the honoring of self and the honoring of God, and call dishonor for what it is. Yet they are able to combine that discernment with the strength of character that covers offenses and guards covenant relationships. 

Nomi Freeman: I need you to listen to me.

Wanda Alger (19 Jan 21): Pay attention. Sometimes, it’s not a matter of praying harder or praying longer, but simply being in the right place at the right time. What looks like defeat and destruction in the natural is often God’s perfect set-up for victory. We just need to…..

……..wait for it………

Steve Shultz: I can attest to the fact that, for 2021, I’ve felt the call to really become a more sanctified man, set apart for the Lord.

Rick Joyner (19 Jan 21): Because this is the most important reason we were created, the number one factor that determines if we are successful in this life is how close to Him we have lived. The Lord said that the most important commandment was to love God, so to grow in our love for Him should be our highest priority in life. 

Kris Vallotton (23 Jan 21): It’s time to move back to loving people! I’d propose that the people changing history are the ones that pursue the hearts of people. They are the ones curing the ills of society, impacting the course of history, and winning hearts, not wars. This must be our strategy as the body of Christ! If we are going to change the culture, it’s important that we change hearts, this is where the issues of society are rooted.

The Rev. Dr. Hannah Adams Ingram (20 Jan 21): And all the while, even as all are included, and all leave their mark on the story, sometimes those on the margins have reasons to distrust those in power, like King Herod. And when that happens, I can’t help but hope they follow their instincts, listen to their dreams, and persist following the way of light and justice and transformation.

Os Hillman (19 Jan 21): Why learning to manage conflict can save you time, money and heartache.

Steve Shultz (19 Jan 21): As a young child growing up in the church…and then going on into my adulthood for several decades, the “portals of Heaven” seemed to me to be a clever or poetic way to depict how God will provide for us from Heaven.

Danielle Dixon (19 Jan 21): Let’s establish what a portal is. A portal is a doorway or entry point into Heaven, opening upon Earth, which causes a noted increase in angelic activity and heavenly encounters. According to the Bible, it is an opening which angels can come and go through without demonic interference. God designed portals to be opened in the third Heaven, traveled through in the second heaven, and have an entry point on the earth, making Heaven accessible to mankind.[25]

Deborah Perkins (18 Jan 21): The women I see moving forward are more concerned with integrity of character than facility of comfort. They will prophesy out of the abundance of God’s riches; they will have the courage to go into enemy territory undercover and with humility, like Deborahs and Esthers. These are women who will honor their covenant with God, and whose character DOES match their gifting, because they have been trained in crucibles of fire! 

Karen Hardin and Kim Potter (20 Jan 21): We have never done this before, but Kim and I are asking you to pray for us. We both write for various organizations, but because of threats and concerns, they are hesitant to publish even encouraging words like we are sharing with you below. Please pray as we seek God for open doors for His message as people need courage and hope! This censorship is coming even from the Christian organizations.

Pastor Steve Dittmar (19 Jan 21): Jesus is the forerunner, who has entered for us into the holiest of holies—where the throne of grace is—having become High Priest forever. (Hebrews 6:17-20)

Steve Shultz (19 Jan 21): Never in those days did I consider that the portals of Heaven (depicted in Scriptures as windows, doors, and gates to name a few) were very real openings of Heaven that God could use at any moment to provide for us.

​Deborah Perkins (27 July 2017): “I will open doors of entry for them into greater spheres of influence and passion: influencing those who are now ready to hear what these women must say, and passion for broadcasting My Name. For My Name is sweeter than honey to them. They have tasted of My goodness and seen My value. Just as they value Me, so I value them and will use them. They are on display in My armory like gems among swords.”

The Rev. Mashaun D. Simon: I like people, but not really. I feel all the time and am curious most of the time. I am terribly impatient, but I also hate having regrets, so I try my best to not make decisions hastily. I profess to be a fan of the teachings of Jesus (as we know them), but hesitate to call myself Christian (it’s complicated). I have been known to overshare — I can’t help it — but am also very private.

When Light Came In (18 Jan 21): Many of us find making decisions hard after long term trauma. Part of that is because considering the future is hard, all by itself.

John Edgerton (22 Jan 21): Each of us must decide where to draw our non-negotiable lines. It matters very much. Our values are revealed by the company we keep.

Vince Amlin (24 Jan 21): When I read this story now, I can only faintly touch that sense of adventure. That breathless place where any moment the call might come, and I will be asked to do something daring in the name of Love.

Rabbi Shaul Leiter (21 Jan 21): All this happened because Shlomo took the call at one in the morning. So many of us don’t answer our phones and don’t call people back. Who knows how we can help a Jew, if only we answer the call.

Nomi Freeman: I feel loved when you give me your attention. When I come home from school and I see you don’t answer the phone because you’re spending time with me, I feel special. I see I’m more important to you than other people and other things.

The Rev. Mashaun D. Simon: I am an advocate of fairness, I believe that we all are children of the Divine, and I have figured out that time is valuable.

Brat to the B4Nine Podcast (18 Jan 21): Toe twisting in the dirt, shy hi.  I read Rev. Mashaun’s post on Metanoia.  The one about Jonah.  I don’t do podcasts, but I felt led to share the conversation anyway.  (It’s complicated.) https://truthinus.wordpress.com

Deborah Perkins (18 Jan 21): Their “surprise attacks” of gentleness and compassion will disarm the mightiest of men, turning them away from wrath and division. They will carry the heart of the Father, turning life and death situations around with their sensitivity to both the Spirit of God and the hearts of those whom they serve!

Helen Calder (17 Jan 21): At the juxtaposition, your brokenness becomes a conduit for God’s grace and power.[26]

Brat (22 Jan 21): But Rev. Mashaun never responded, just like the others.

When Light Came In (20 Jan 21): They’ll never respond how we need. Even when we forgot we needed it.

Lovesick Scribe (21 Jan 21): Those who would have ears to hear and eyes to see have been given a gift, particularly those listening to individuals who would call themselves prophets of God. Those who listen to them are taking stock in their words while having these same words fall to the ground. Many of these professing prophets are excusing the error and abusing the grace of God. The gift is exposure to the truth and a wakeup call to return to God and to His holy written Word as the source of truth. Speaking like this certainly garners critics and enemies. It is to be expected. These words will be judged while admonishing me for judging others. These words will be tested against failed prophecies rather than the Word of God. Let me remind you that Scripture is sufficient and is the surer word of prophecy (2 Peter 1:19,20).

Nahum 2:8 Nineveh is like a pool whose water is draining away. “Stop! Stop!” they cry, but no one turns back.

Nomi Freeman: I feel scared. My only thought is “I want this to stop.” I can’t learn anything, I’m so frightened.

Bill Lackie (19 Jan 21): To align yourself is to reduce what you know to its lowest common denominator so that simplicity rules. The enemy is the author of confusion. Gathering information without processing and saying, “Yes, I believe,” keeps you in a “wandering” position with the weight of all you know.

When Light Came In (18 Jan 21): You’re not broken if you feel this way. It’s a normal response to long term or ongoing trauma. It is one of the ways the brain protects itself. But it’s not adaptive for the long haul, it robs us of hope. This is why we need each other, need support groups, need a good trauma therapist, need flesh and blood (even on Zoom) people to anchor us to this moment so we can begin to believe the next won’t crush us. So we can begin to look forward again in ways that make us want to move towards it, instead of float away into oblivion.

John Edgerton (22 Jan 21): Prayer: Surround me with those whose righteousness exceeds my own, that I might learn from them the paths of peace.

Steve Shultz (18 Jan 21): In this season, it is time for great men and women of God to come to the front of the crowds and the front of the line, and BE THE LEADER instead of looking for one.

The Rev. Mashaun D. Simon: I am slow to trust, terribly loyal, but also highly critical. I have worked pretty hard to be the person I am today, but still feel as though there is so much more for me to accomplish. I am a son, a brother, and an uncle. I am someone’s husband, someone’s cousin, someone’s confidant, and someone’s friend. At the end of the day, I am really just me, trying to find my place in the world and committed to ensuring that those I love are their very best. Oh, and before I forget, I’m with you Lizzo, “Why are men great until they gotta be great?”

Prism Ministries (21 Jan 21): Are you awaiting provision from God? Sometimes, we need to make the first move toward God’s leading. Provision follows obedience.[27]

Wanda Alger (19 Jan 21): We have declared that God does miracles. We have testified to the parting of the Red Sea. Yet, we must remember that God’s greatest miracles happen at the darkest times. I’ve heard from numerous intercessors saying they’ve been waking up around 3:00 in the morning – for absolutely no reason. Wide awake. I immediately think about another 3:00 event. It was the time of Jesus’ death.  And yet, at earth’s darkest hour – it turned out to be the greatest sting operation in all of history.

When Light Came In (20 Jan 21): I read his response and didn’t realize or expect it would sting for him to completely sidestep the woman he called mom for 20 years being diagnosed with the disease that’s taken more people in our country than our total lost to World War II.

Rabbi Shaul Leiter (21 Jan 21): What justification did G-d have to continue to punish Pharaoh with another plague, this time the plague of locusts, for not heeding Moshe’s warning if G‑d himself had hardened Pharaoh’s heart not to listen?

Revelation 18:Then I heard another voice from heaven say:

“‘Come out of her, my people,’
    so that you will not share in her sins,
    so that you will not receive any of her plagues;

The Rev. Mashaun D. Simon: And I am sorry, but I struggle with such declarations. I struggle to believe that those who are homeless are so because of something they did when there are systems in place that cause outcomes out of our control. I struggle to believe that the person who experienced sexual assault, something I myself have experienced before, deserved such a violation. I struggle to believe that those that are enslaved, poor, blind, barren, broken and battered are because of something they did or failed to do. And I struggle to believe that the wealthiest of the wealthiest achieved some extra grace from God that led to their success when they have gained their success from the suffering and exploitation of others. 

Lovesick Scribe (21 Jan 21): There is great concern that a simple apology suffices while true repentance seems to be lacking and not demonstrated. Repentance would lead to a change in thinking and actions. It would lead back to Jesus Christ and not to a person’s “ministry”. The fear of the Lord is severely lacking here, and this is what concerns me the most. There were people speaking on behalf of Almighty God and declaring that He said something when He did not say it. If this does not bring conviction of taking the Lord’s Name in vain, I am not sure what will. Jeremiah 23:21 tells of the prophets who ran yet were not sent by God. They prophesied, but God did not speak to them. They go on to confess their dreams and their visions, drawing men unto themselves. God warned the people prior to this revelation not to listen to these prophets because they were filling the people with vain hopes and visions of their own minds (Jeremiah 23:16).

Brat Journal (in “Stand Off” 16 Jan 21): I have not tolerated our exile as Rabbi YY asserts.  I cannot defend my calling, but there is proof in my writings and the Word incorporated into our dialogues.  Thyatira has tolerated Jezebel, but there is proof that I have not.  Thyatira has eaten ‘food’ (Manna) sacrificed to idols (of their own ministries) and been led astray into getting off on her manipulations and exploits.  I have often written about spiritual rape.  They pretend they don’t hear, but come back with Arc Speak the next day that shows that they do.  This is cruel from people who profess to be men of the cloth and loving.

Rabbi YY Jacobson (21 Jan 21): Within the restricted structure of our bodies, life span, and circumstances, we can compose a ballad from our time. Yet, we can’t free ourselves from the prison of mortality. Even when I work hard and use my time well, it is still cruel to me. It ages me. At any moment something can happen which will shake up and destroy my entire structure and rhythm.

When Light Came In (22 Jan 21): Think of love as a cable between hearts, pumping care and life from one to the other and back again. If only one side is connected, the love pours from the giving heart, out on the floor, draining to empty.

Rick Joyner (19 Jan 21): As The Lord taught in the Parable of the Sower, we must also watch for how the birds, which He said represented the devil, will try to steal the seed. We must pray over our gardens for protection, and at times be ready to counter the attacks of the devil on what we are cultivating, as always with patience. 

Kevin Zadai (24 Jan 21): “…by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” (2 Peter 1:4)

The Rev. Mashaun D. Simon: No, I am not suggesting any of that. But what I am suggesting is, instead of God following through with God’s punishment, God chose to allow the people a chance to adjust. And I believe that is what the year 2020 was for many of us – a chance to readjust.

Brat Journal (in “Stand Off” 16 Jan 21): But I have.  I’ve done my best. It is the vultures who demand more.  It’s never enough for them.  They would lose out on their game if Jesus said, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”  With them it’s never enough, because that spirit of gluttony devours and is insatiable.

Ryan Johnson (22 Jan 21): There is a greater purpose. We know that the Lord will separate the wheat from the chaff. We know that the Lord will protect the lambs from the wolves. We also know that the darkness can never consume the light, whereas light always overcomes the darkness. I look back at the recent few years and see a steady and rising trend of wickedness, darkness, manipulation, greed, lust, envy, jealousy, and demonic strongholds.

Pastor Steve Dittmar (19 Jan 21): At the throne of grace, like at the mercy seat, there is a high priest. When we boldly approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and grace, it is because we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God. (Hebrews 4:14-16)

Rabbi Shaul Leiter (21 Jan 21): The instant a person wants to make the move, he or she can do it immediately, in the twinkling of an eye. But sometimes all that is needed is a bit of help from someone in the right place and at the right time.

1 Corinthians 15: 51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

The Rev. Mashaun D. Simon: Maybe, just maybe, it wasn’t about running, but maybe it all has been about time.

Matthew 12:41 The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now something greater than Jonah is here.

Deborah Perkins (18 Jan 21): I see the Lord sending “Abigails” to the men who can receive them. They are faithful and wise servants to whom God is entrusting greater things in this hour. They have heeded the warning to “keep watch” and are ready for their Master’s return. They will receive their King’s commendation and blessing, and will have the joy of becoming the true “Bride” of the Lord when He returns!

Steve Shultz (18 Jan 21): We are in a time and season where we press through, no longer looking for that one key leader to turn things around.

Rabbi Shaul Leiter (21 Jan 21): G‑d looks forward to this effort on the part of every Jew, even those Jews who seem so far away whether from ignorance or inclination, that they seem to have lost it all.

Brat: Well, Rev. Dr. Hannah Adams Ingram, … I still don’t belong anywhere, but the rabbis helped us move our storyline over a hump.  And Jesus did say that He was sent to the lost sheep of Israel first. (Matthew 15:24)

Sophia Valentina Buller (22 Jan 21): When I Restore the FORTUNES of Judah and Jerusalem ALL will know that I AM God 🌻🌻🌻I AM Elohim 🌻🌻🌻I AM JAHOVA 🌻🌻🌻I AM ADONAI 🌻🌻🌻I AM that I AM IN JESUS NAME🌻🌻🌻

Steve Shultz (24 Jan 21): More than any time in history, what we say will literally have eternal consequences…especially now that we are being taught how vital it is to be careful with what we say.

Brat: At least one disaster was averted.

Jonah 3:10 When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil ways, God changed his mind about the calamity that he had said he would bring upon them; and he did not do it.

[24] Perets Auerbach: 3.There are different aspects, arrangements and systems through which Providence functions. In His supreme, exalted, unfathomable greatness, G‑d actually works through varied orders at the same time. This explains how at times dissonant and even contradictory dynamics are happening at the same time. The Torah teaches what is considered to be real giving, real loving.
