The LORD said to me this morning, “The BIBLICAL YEAR of 5780 (October 8-9, 2019 to September 27-28, 2020) is the year of the mouth, but too many do not know how to use the gift of their tongues for My Glory in both war and peace.
Too many still have their tongues in a box with the ribbon tied around it, and proudly display a huge bow on top.”
Then He showed me all the people walking around with their tongues in a box with a ribbon and bow on them, some were hanging out of their mouths because the box they carried with them was so huge, like the kind you would get a large refrigerator or freezer in or larger, while others had smaller boxes and they were able to keep their tongue and the box within their mouth, most of the time.
He was really trying to to accentuate His point, so I was rather shocked to think about it in those terms.
He went on, “It is the spirits of religion and pride, that are keeping My People that way. The larger the box and its bow, the larger the spirits of religion and pride are in those people.
It will be increasingly important in the days ahead that everyone be functioning in the fullness of their gifts, especially the gift of tongues. It is a gift that the enemy has long had a tight hold on.”
At this I saw the enemy send a group of demons that were assigned to go around to everyone to check the ones who had the boxes and bows, to see if their ribbons had loosened.
If they were loose, the demons job was to tighten them, so there wouldn’t be a danger to the enemy of the tongues of more believers being loosed upon him.
The LORD had me totally intrigued at this point, as I hadn’t thought of the gift of tongues in this way.
For me, tongues flow out of my mouth in more situations than I can count during a regular day and it just seems like a natural thing, that I don’t consciously think about, it just flows.
But then The LORD reminded me of several times when I facilitated small groups, and we would talk about singing in tongues, and I knew from the look on their faces that they didn’t have a full understanding of what I was talking about.
But The LORD didn’t lead me further down the path then, so I had to leave it where it was, at that time.
He then reminded me of those who walk heavy in the gifts of signs, wonders, miracles and creative miracles, spend much time in tongues, letting the spirit of God within them intercede and worship in His fullness, not worried about “knowing what they are saying”.
He told me, “Mankind should desire to speak and sing in tongues freely, so that they can walk in greater freedom and trust in Me.
This will open them to an increase in their spiritual power and authority, through an increase in their giftings.
For truly this will lead them on the path to walking in more of Me, to see the fullness of My Calling on their life.” (John 14:12-18).
He reminded me of a time years ago, when I had gone through a lengthy intercession in warfare tongues, one day.
For me, warfare tongues can get very loud, it totally changes tone and pitch in my voice, can be very intense.
I’ve seen the demons ‘get out of Dodge’ as quick as they can when this happens, because they don’t want to stick around for more! I also feel like The Holy Spirit loves these times!
One of the times this happened, I was so in awe of what God had just done, as I saw walls crumbling, demons flying away quickly, angels with swords doing things I’d never imagined and much more in the spiritual realm, so that I asked Him to tell me what I had just said?
He very bluntly said to me, “And then who would get the glory? For truly I say to you, I will tell you what has been said, if it is needed.
But if I were to tell you what was just said, you would use it as a pattern in further prayers, finally feeling you were getting the victory over the enemy, when it is MY VICTORY!” (Acts 10:34).
Well, that definitely put me in my place, and I no longer ask for interpretations, but trust Him that I will know the interpretation of tongues when it is needed. BUT, because of that experience, I’ve learned to trust God more, so that the fluency and types of languages has increased as well as the interpretation of them.
Years ago, there was a time when He had me join an African-American Church that had me driving over an hour to attend.
However God’s Agape Love was there in abundance, as it literally smacked you in the face as you entered the building, because of the over-abounding unconditional love of the founder of the Church that overflowed onto everything within the Church.
It was here that The LORD taught me about singing in tongues or in The Spirit.
There was a time early in my membership, when I was talking to The LORD, because there were many songs that they were singing that were traditional / cultural that I didn’t know, and it hurt my feelings, that I wasn’t able to join in with the singing, but just listened as they sang to The LORD.
The LORD saw how it was grieving me and said to me, “When you don’t know the words, sing in the spirit. I know the words and what they will sing. Do not worry about it. I’m in control.”
That took away me thinking I had to know the words, or relying on me and instead relying on God more, because God not only knew the words they would be singing, and I had no worries. So the next song and now whenever I don’t know a song my spirit automatically goes into tongues singing.
I don’t question Him about it, I just do it..
Again He reminded me of a time, years ago, when I was teaching in a school and co-taught with teachers, the principal came to the classroom I was in and asked me to come to the hall.
After doing so, he explained that I was needed in his office. As I walked with him to the front of his office he told me to look in the window of his office, which I did.
Inside was a young child who sat on the seat of the chair and had his arms and legs pushed between the spokes of a wooden straight-back chair.
He told me that he had tried everything to get the child’s arms and legs out from between the spokes but he was unable to, and he wasn’t sure what to do next, as the child needed to go home.
He asked if I could help and asked me to walk in and assess the situation and come back out.
So I walked into the room and greeted the child like nothing was unusual. The child was murmuring under his breath and ignored me. I went back out to the principal.
Then he said, “So tell me, is that what they call, speaking in tongues?”
I said, “Yes, but that isn’t holy tongues, that’s unholy tongues. There are both holy and unholy tongues that are used by others. But what he is speaking is unholy tongues, I promise you.”
I knew, because The LORD had told me as I entered.
He asked if I could help. With The LORD’s help I walked back into the office and spoke what The LORD told me to speak and the child’s arms and legs immediately came out from between the spokes of the chair.
I was amazed and grateful to God for what He had done. He doesn’t cease to amaze me!
There have also been times, when I’ve held babies or small children when I find myself singing in the spirit or in tongues.
Again, because I know I’m singing is what God wants me to sing over that child or children, I’m at peace with it, but I also find that God often uses it to bring PEACE to the babies or children or the current situation, whatever it is.
For those who think they have to have a wonderful singing voice to sing in the spirit to The LORD, The LORD told me long ago, “ You are singing for Me, and as far as I AM concerned you have the most beautiful voice I have ever heard.
Remember, I AM your Father, and I AM the One who created you. I don’t make junk!”
I promise you I do not have a wonderful singing voice. Years ago, I played softball in a night game and was hit by a ball in my throat, when the lights blinded me.
When I went to work the next day, I had no voice and had to teach through hand signals and drawing pictures! My students were better behaved then, than they had been normally! I believe because of the additional angels in the room!
BUT GOD restored my voice in a little over two weeks, just at a lower sound! He is in the miracle business, as He has reminded me so many times in my life!
Finally, I was with my family, praying with my eyes shut in a wing-back chair over the holidays. My 4 year old granddaughter was playing about 6-8 feet away.
As I finished praying I began to sing in tongues quietly. When I finished, my granddaughter was standing within six inches of my face grinning from ear to ear.
She said, “Grandma, what were you doing?” I have to tell you I was taken back a bit, because it was so unexpected.
I said, “Grandma was singing.”
Next she asked, “Grandma, is that what they call speaking in other languages?”
I said, “Yes.”
I didn’t think her grin could have gotten any bigger, but it did! “Oh Grandma, I just loved it! I just loved it!” she giggled, as she excitedly skipped away!
It was interesting, as I realized her spirit was connecting to The Holy Spirit in me and listening to the spirit of The LORD I believe. He used her to speak through to me. I was delighted! Out of the mouth of babes, right? (Psalm 8:2)
I believe The LORD reminded me of all these experiences, not just for me to enjoy the memories, but for you as a believer to understand at a greater level, the need for speaking in tongues.
It is a major weapon of warfare, as well as a tool for intercession and worship of the One True God.
The days ahead will not be easy, but with God all things are possible and so much easier when we do it His way, instead of ours!
In wanting to please Him, we should all want what He wants, as He is our Commander in Chief who has been and will be leading the battle in the days ahead. He really does know what is best for us.
For me, it makes it so much easier to pray, sing, and do warfare, when I don’t have to wonder about what to sing, say or do, I just trust Him to do it all.
Father, I bind every spirit of retaliation that would come against believers who are given greater freedom in tongues through reading, speaking, singing, and having a greater understanding of you LORD, and your heart for us in this.
LORD, I call forth a paradigm shift in the minds, hearts, and spirits of believers and non-believers that they would more fully line up with your heart’s desire for each of them, LORD.
I bind the spirits of religion and pride in the believers and non-believers who are not being fully used by you, LORD, in accordance with your heart for each of them.
I send the spirits of religion and pride to the feet of Jesus, that each believer and non-believer will more fully operate in the gifts God has intended for each of us to operate in.
I bind the demons who have been ordered to tighten the strings on the boxes and bows, of those who have not been able to freely use the gift of tongues the way you, LORD want them to be used.
I command you to go to the feet of Jesus, now.
I command the Angels of God to cut the strings off of the boxes and bows that are keeping believers trapped in pride and religion, and keeping them from a greater fullness and future in you, LORD.
Father, I loose the tongues of believers and nonbelievers to be used by you, LORD, in The Spirit, the way that you want to use them.
I break the curses of witchcraft, freemasonry, divination, voodoo, santeria, and any other type of witchcraft trying to detour, delay, or cause harm, pain, suffering, premature death, or destruction now.
I speak life, wholeness, and wellness to all believers and command that those who were tongue-tied are loosed and no longer tongue-tied.
Father, give them songs to sing and words to speak, that are holy and true.
LORD, give them divine appointments that their gifts are strengthened mightily for the days ahead and give them interpretations for the words and songs, according to your heart’s desire.
LORD, that they would come forth in great joy and exultation to you, LORD, that you would use them for your glory.
LORD, that they would move into your calling on their lives.
LORD, in Jesus’ Name, Your Will be done, Your Kingdom come, on earth, as it is in Heaven. Let it be so. Amen.
“12 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father. 13 And I will do [I Myself will grant whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son. [Exodus 3:14]. 14 [Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]. 15 If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever — 17 The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans [comfortless, desolate, bereaved, forlorn, helpless]; I will come [back] to you,” John 14:12-18 AMP.
“And Peter opened his mouth and said, Most certainly and thoroughly I now perceive and understand that God shows no partiality and is no respecter of persons,” Acts 10:34 AMP.
“Out of the mouths of babes and unweaned infants You have established strength because of your foes, that You might silence the enemy and the avenger, [Matthew 21:15-16] ,” Psalm 8:2 AMP.
“And these attesting signs will accompany those who believe in My name: they will drive out demons; they will speak in new languages; 18 They will pick up serpents; and [even] if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will get well,” Mark 16:17-18 AMP.
“And they were all filled (diffused throughout their souls) with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other (different, foreign) languages (tongues), as the Spirit kept giving them clear and loud expression [in each tongue in appropriate words],” Acts 2:4 AMP.
“And as Paul laid his hands upon them, the Holy Spirit came on them; and they spoke in [foreign , unknown] tongues (languages) and prophesied,” Acts 19:6 AMP.
“[So] that in Him in every respect you were enriched, in full power and readiness of speech [to speak of your faith] and complete knowledge and illumination [to give you full insight into its meaning],” 1 Corinthians 1:5 AMP.
“8 To one is given in and through the [Holy] Spirit [the power to speak] a message of wisdom, and to another [the power to express] a word of knowledge and understanding according the the same [Holy] Spirit; 9 To another [wonder-working] faith by the same [Holy] Spirit, to another the extraordinary powers of healing by the one Spirit; 10 To another the working of miracles, to another prophetic insight (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose); to another the ability to discern and distinguish between [the utterances of true] spirits [and false ones], to another various kinds of [unknown] tongues, to another the ability to interpret [such] tongues. 11 All these [gifts, achievements, abilities] are inspirited and brought to pass by one and the same [Holy] Spirit, Who apportions to each person individually [exactly] as He chooses,” 1 Corinthians 12:8-11 AMP.
“1 IF I [can] speak in the tongues of men and [even] of angels, but have not love (that reasoning, intentional, spiritual devotion such as in inspired by God’s love for and in us), I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose), and understand all the secret truths and mysteries and possess all knowledge, and if I have [sufficient] faith so that I can remove mountains, but have not love (God’s love in me) I am nothing (a useless nobody).
3 Even if I dole out all that I have [to the poor in providing food, and if I surrender my body to be burned or in order that I may glory, but have not love (God’s love in me), I gain nothing.
4 Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. 5 It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. 6 It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
7 Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, its ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].
8 Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]. As for prophecy (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose), it will be fulfilled and pass away; as for tongues, they will be destroyed and cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away [it will lose its value and be superseded by truth].
9 For our knowledge is fragmentary (incomplete and imperfect), and our prophecy (our teaching) is fragmentary (incomplete and imperfect). 10 But when the complete and perfect (total) comes, the incomplete and imperfect will vanish away (become antiquated, void, and superseded).
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; now that I have become a man, I am done with childish ways and have put them aside.
12 For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [of reality as in a riddle or enigma], but then [when perfection comes] we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood [by God]. 13 And so faith, hope, love abide [faith – conviction and belief respecting man’s relation to God and divine things; hope – joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love – true affection for God and man, growing out of God’s love for and in us], these three; but the greatest of these is love,” 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 AMP.
“2 For one who speaks in an [unknown] tongue speaks not to men but to God, for no one understands or catches his meaning, because in [Holy] Spirit he utters secret truths and hidden things [not obvious to the understanding]…….
……. 23 Therefore, if the whole church assembles and all fo you speak in [unknown] tongues, and the ungifted and uninitiated or unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are demented?…….
……. 27 If some speak in a [strange] tongue, let the number be limited to two at the most three, and each one [taking his] turn, and let one interpret and explain [what was said]. 28 But if there is no one to do the interpreting, let each of them keep still in church and talk to himself and to God,” 1 Corinthians 14: 2, 23, 27-28 AMP.
“But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness,” Galatians 5:22 AMP.
God Bless You!

Remember Lot’s wife? I’m not her. I believe and want change for the Body of Christ to walk in the OBEDIENCE & HOLINESS OF GOD. That is the way, the truth, and the life of Christ that we are to want to be like in this season and in the days ahead. We need a relationship with our LORD NOW more than ever before. God has allowed me to minister all over the world through the internet, and in person through conferences, church services, and small groups. My heart is to see the Body of Christ walk in freedom that God means for them, so they can develop a deep intimacy with Father God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit. I minister to others through prophetic words, and other gifts, bringing breakthrough and calling people into a constant pursuit of God’s Heart to actively hear God’s voice for themselves and others. I try to be the best servant of God that I can be, with lots of help from God, Holy Spirit, and Jesus.
