Bobby Conner – Court is now in session!

I had a dream, which was so real it seemed, as if it was an actual occurrence. In this experience I was setting alone in a huge room much like a courtroom. Suddenly I heard a very loud sound of a gavel striking the Judges bench; quickly I looked toward the direction the sound came from. However, all I could see was blinding light, much like the rays of the sun shining in it’s strength.

From this brilliant light, I was addressed by a voice, which stated, “There must come a righteous revolution!” At that moment I questioned asking, “Why?” The voice stated in a strong promising tone, “To Bring Us Back To God!”

At this point I heard this phrase, which was spoken with great authority: “Court Is Now in Session!”

Instantly, the entire courtroom was packed with people, they were extremely quiet, you could sense they were uneasy and not sure what was about to take place. And I heard an order— “called these three witnesses!”

1. The Individual!
2. The Church!
3. The Nation!

Then again from the radiant Light, the voice speaks, addressing the called witnesses, “Do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?”

Again the voice from the blinding light speaks, posing a question – “Are you prepared to present your case?”

At this point I am stunned awake. My heart was pounding, knowing we have entered into a time, to take a stand. I was troubled, knowing that we hold the key, to which way our future will go. First each of us must examine our individual life, it is easy to blame the Church, or nation, but God will first call us to
account for our individual behavior.

As the people of God we do hold the keys that determine which way we will go. None can remain neutral. We must seek God and turn to Him with all our hearts; the future of our nation depends on it.

If our nation is to be changed it must be from “the Church House” not “the White House!”

Do you seek great things for yourself – DO NOT SEEK THEM.

Among the sins to which the human heart is prone, hardly any other is more hateful to God than idolatry, for idolatry is at bottom a libel on His character. The idolatrous heart assumes that God is other than He is – in itself a monstrous sin – and substitutes for the true God one made after its own likeness. Always this God will conform to the image of the one who created it and will be base or pure, cruel or kind, according to the moral state of the mind from which it emerges.
A god begotten in the shadows of a fallen heart will quite naturally be no true likeness of the true God.
”Thou thought,” said the Lord to the wicked man in the psalm, “that I was altogether such as one as thyself.” Surely this must be a serious affront to the Most High God before whom cherubim and seraphim continually do cry, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Sabbath.”

Let us beware lest we in our pride accept the erroneous notion that idolatry consists only in kneeling before visible objects of adoration, and that civilized peoples are therefore free from it. The essence of idolatry is the entertainment of thoughts about God that are unworthy of Him. It begins in the mind and may be present where no overt act of worship has taken place.
A.W. Tozer

The Lord has been showing me idolatry of thought in several different ways lately.

I read this in Jeremiah 45…
The word that Jeremiah the prophet spoke to Baruch the son of Neriah, when he had written these words in a book at the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying, So says Jehovah, the God of Israel, to you, O Baruch: You said, Woe is me now, for Jehovah has added grief to my sorrow. I fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest. So you shall say to him, Jehovah says this: Behold, what I have built I will break down, and that which I have planted I will pluck up, even all the land itself to Me. And do you seek great things for yourself? Do not seek them; for behold, I will bring evil on all flesh, says Jehovah. But I will give your life to you as a prize, in all places where you go.  (Jeremiah 45:1-5)

In our present Christian circles we are bombarded with tales of both destiny and glory coming upon us if we will just fall in line with our giving to the right causes, or believing the words of the speaker.  I believe we are entering a time where we need to focus entirely upon Jesus and His glory and stop worrying about our own.

 

Rick Joyner on Revelation 22

Now we come to the last verses in the Book of Revelation. These seem to be a summation of how to get ready for the end of this age (see Revelation 22:10-21):

       And he said to me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near.

       “Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.”

         Daniel was told to seal up the prophecies he was given until the end of the age. One of the signs that we are indeed at the end of this age is the way that the prophecies of Daniel have been opened to our understanding. John was told not to seal the prophecy he was given here because the time was near. As we have covered, what was revealed to John in this revelation did begin to immediately unfold and is still unfolding as we approach the end of this age.

         This also declares that those who do wrong, and those who are righteous, will continue until the end. Neither will fully prevail until the kingdom comes.

         Next we read:

       “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. 

       “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”

       Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city.

       Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.

         This reminds us that there will certainly be a Day of Judgment when everyone, the “just and the unjust,” will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ to answer for their deeds in this life. This is called “the great and terrible day of The Lord” because it will be great for those who follow Him and terrible for those who do not. There is only one remedy for our sin and that is the blood of Jesus. Those who trust in His atonement will be clean before Him and have nothing to fear on the Day of Judgment—assured that they will be welcome to partake of the Tree of Life in His city.

         “Dogs,” as referred to in this text, were a metaphor in the first century for those who repented and embraced the cross, and then returned to their sinful lives just as dogs return to their vomit. Such are assigned their lot with the evil ones.

         Then we read:

       “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”

       The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.

         The call still goes out for the thirsty to come to Him—Jesus, the Water of Life and Life Himself. There is no cost because He already paid the price for us, yet it is the most valuable treasure there is on the earth. The wise pursue it and partake of it like it is the most valuable treasure. There is no lottery prize that can compare to a single word from Him. The wise pursue this “water of life” more than any prize because its reward is eternal life, not just the temporary pleasures of this life.

Next we read:

       I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book;

       and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.

            What could be a greater presumption than to change a word that was given by God? The end of this age will be a time of the greatest light and the greatest darkness. Those who walk in the light will be known for their esteem for His words. Those who walk in darkness will be known by their rejection of His word, or their presumption with it. The first tactic of the devil against Adam and Eve was to get them to doubt what God had clearly said. It is still his most effective tactic to get men to fall and no doubt will be until the end of the age.

         Then we have the last words of this Revelation and of the entire Bible:

        He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

       The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.

         The Lord is coming quickly. Those who love Him are growing increasingly expectant of that glorious day. As we are told, even the trees will be “clapping their hands” because the whole creation is about to be restored to union and harmony with the Creator.

The final words are for the grace of The Lord Jesus to be with us all, as there could be nothing greater that we could ever possess.

Kat Kerr – Post Election roundup

GOD BLESS AMERICA, HEAVEN IS WATCHING. DID YOU PASS THE FLESH TEST OR FAIL IT?

Do you really know what matters to God, it is our treatment of each other. When you do get to Heaven one day, God will not ask you if you voted for the ‘red’ or the ‘blue’ but He will ask you if you loved others ‘WELL’.

God is working His plan whether you understand or not but it would bless His heart if you would actually trust Him and we show that by not letting fear in. Fear is present when we allow our flesh to have an opinion which is done when we abandon what God has revealed to us and start talking against it or bashing others for their stand, words or actions. The more we give in to our flesh, the harder it is to hear or understand what God is doing. He is NOT a man and rarely does things that make sense to the human mind.

In all that took place last night, He IS working His plan but doing it in a way that most did not even consider. The red tsunami did happen so all those prophets were not wrong. He has sent part of the red tsunami (those who want what He wants) which was represented in the senate but the rest of the red tsunami He sent in the blue (covertly of course) that represent the house. There will be a battle but it will not be Trump continually fighting the house as it will be revealed as those (who want a greater America) in the house will actually openly come against those who want a socialist government. Those who will face the greatest resistance will be the Liberal democrats who think they have won control of the House but will soon realize they were actually bushwhacked by God, His plan and the conservative democrats who do NOT want socialism! When God gives revelation on His Word or His plan it is easy to understand. You will see others quit in order to avoid the assumed confrontations or even fired but God is still working His plan that will shift and change our government and nation. Kudos to all who passed the flesh test and stayed in the Spirit, prayed for God’s will to be done regardless and trust Him and are kind to those who have no clue.

James Goll – Pre-election primer 2

James Goll had some prophetic encounters and this one describes the future of America and the world.

The Time of the Great Divide

There is a deepening polarization taking place in society that will not be healed quickly—in fact, things are going to heat up even more. On the Day of Atonement in September 2018, I was shown a boiling caldron of escalating violence that went past what we experienced in the 1960’s. I was warned that there would be an increase of gang violence including a huge arsenal of munitions that would be distributed within the nation(s) by a devilish sinister plot to create disorder, chaos and senseless crimes. I saw multiple mass shootings taking place in different cities around the world, like what recently occurred in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I was shown gun raids where U.S. Federal agents would confiscate massive arsenals. The Holy Spirit called this deepening polarization, “The Time of the Great Divide.” This calls for a response from the body of Christ, both of intercession and spiritual warfare to expose the spirit of violence that produces riots, division and polarization. The words of 2 Chronicles 7:14 are just as true today as the day in which they were originally written. “If My people, who are called by My name shall humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”  

God is never taken by surprise. He is not sitting in Heaven with sweaty palms or wringing His hands in a nervous frenzy. In fact, according to Job 36:32, “He covers His hands with lightening (glory) and commands it to strike the mark.” Darkness is an excellent backdrop for light to shine its brightest.

Prophecy for the Bride

In the seventh month, in the twenty-first of the month, the Word of Jehovah came by the prophet Haggai, saying, Now speak to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people, saying, Who is left among you who saw this house in her first glory? And how do you see it now? When compared to it, is it not as nothing in your eyes? Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, says Jehovah. And be strong, O Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest; and be strong all people of the land, says Jehovah, and work; for I am with you, says Jehovah of Hosts with the Word who cut a covenant with you when you came out of Egypt, and My Spirit remains among you. Do not fear. For so says Jehovah of Hosts: Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land. And I will shake all the nations; and the desire of all nations shall come; and I will fill this house with glory, says Jehovah of Hosts. The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine, says Jehovah of Hosts. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than that of the former, says Jehovah of Hosts. And in this place I will give peace, says Jehovah of Hosts.  (Haggai 2:1-9)

Mike Bickle – Open Letter to the prayer and prophetic movement

Beloved,

We stand at the crossroads of history. I urge you to prayerfully read the entire contents of this letter, as I am gripped with a rare urgency in my spirit. Opportunities for revival and spiritual breakthrough exist at almost incomprehensible levels alongside toxic distractions and soul-numbing passivity. Cultural decay is dragging our young people into gutters of oppression and perversion. War on the saints is escalating as nations heave in the throes of crises, birth pangs, and political correctness. Even so, I am filled with hope! If we lean into Jesus, on His terms, revival could come more swiftly than a raging, windswept grassfire at the height of summer. These are truly historic days.

However, to be properly positioned, we must take a hard look in the mirror. Too much of our “inspirational,” charismatic rhetoric has become both anemic and insufficient relative to the coming storm. Charismatic conferences have been wonderful and useful for many years, but now risk missing the point entirely if they are not deeply attuned to the whispering voice of the Holy Spirit. When the “cloud and fire” disrupt camp to move us into new territory, we must follow. I include our own annual gathering Onething in this assessment. Times and seasons change; if we discern the Spirit is leading this, we are compelled to obey, even if it requires disruption.

This is why we are announcing a very late, critical course correction. We are intentionally scrapping plans-as-usual. I am convinced that we stand on the precipice of a new era in the prayer, prophetic, and missions movement. I want to say boldly but tenderly: our house is on fire. I mean our nation, the Church, society itself. I am not okay with this, and I certainly do not speak it in a critical or gloating tone. As a shepherd, accountable to God, I feel burdened to speak the truth I perceive. So let me be even more plain. For years, I have said trouble is coming. I now feel I must say it differently: trouble is here. This means the days and years ahead will be of a different caliber of difficulty and complexity than anything we’ve ever known in the past. The new normal will not look like the heyday of the 80s and 90s. It will be more challenging than people expect, but the kingdom opportunities are far beyond what we imagine.

Our leadership team is so gripped by this reality that we’re literally “starting over.” With only three months to go—honestly, this is terrible for marketing!—we are reformatting Onething around a simple, clarion call to the entire Body of Christ: a divine reset is coming! 

One facet of our corporate reset is that we will not highlight the roster of speakers and worship teams this year. In the past, we have enthusiastically shared the schedule for our four-day gathering, and I am so grateful for the many excellent friends, teachers, and worship leaders who have brought their anointing and deep heart for God to our conference.

I need to be very clear on this: nobody has done anything wrong. Yet incrementally, I feel we’ve missed the mark by leaning more on brilliant marquees than on the Man with burning eyes. This year, we are deliberately returning to the mystery of what if? What if God interrupted our plans? What if the Holy Spirit took over? What if we lavished our affection and attention on Him above all other concerns? What if we became consumed with One thing all over again? We’re going to plan around that supreme goal, and take our chances. Rather than exalting human personalities and celebrity voices, we are deliberately re-centering around the consuming reality of Jesus, His agenda for planet earth, and His ownership of those four days in December. If we want everything God would give to the human spirit in this hour of history, a short-term, conference buzz can no longer suffice.

Onething 2018 will not be a Christian festival designed to razzle-dazzle you. Rather, we are setting aside four days for a sacred assembly to encounter Him in new depth. Though we stand on earth, we aspire to join angels around the throne.

As we enter our 20th year of night-and-day ministry to the Lord, IHOPKC is in a period of radical realignment. A new thing is coming. I am announcing this by faith. Though we only glimpse it right now, our team wants to begin talking about it publicly in December. We will likely unpack it even more over the next year or two, but the shift begins now.

I urge you not to miss the signals that the Holy Spirit is giving the Church in this hour. These are days of high transition. God is speaking, but His whisper demands revelation and unique focus. Voluntarily choose to adjust your life’s signal-to-noise ratio. The global prayer movement is entering its next critical phase, going far beyond the theater of an event into the Father’s deep desire for the total supremacy of His Son to be known among the nations and to raise up a close knit family who deeply values and loves one another. If you are moved to join this fresh swell of divine love and strategic insight, we believe this year’s gathering is more than an annual occurrence, it is an essential course correction for the entire prayer movement. I urge believers around the world, but particularly across North America, to join us December 28–31 in downtown Kansas City.

With urgency, hope, and confidence,

Mike Bickle
