The Watchmen & Gatekeepers’ Call

5 Words in 1


The Father’s hands are upon us. . . . . . . .

While I was in prayer, I heard the song,

“Have thine own way LORD, have thine own way — thou art the potter I am the clay.  Mold me and make me after thy will.  I am waiting, yielded and still.”

We are all going through a refining process as we are being prepared for this hour.

The more we allow this process to take place the more we will be transformed by Him.

Whether we are being centered on the potter’s wheel, being smoothed out in the defining purpose as the water that touches us and removes our rough edges, will have allot to do with what we must submit to unto the LORD.

Whether it seems that we are going in circles on the potter’s wheel, being set aside to dry out, or being baked, glazed or sealed.  It is the process that says to us to grow and mature.

Know this, the Father’s hands are upon us for good, but it will not feel good. the process on the wheel is an inner work to make us what we must be.

From the process of healing from the past, to directing our very steps, and setting us upon the road that must be traveled in order to complete necessary life assignments.

All the way to the future which lies ahead that is fast approaching us.  The seriousness of the hour doesn’t have time for us to feel like it.

He is working in us, on us and through us.  What we need right now is to allow the removal of those things that we must let go to be eliminated.

No more tantrums allowed. . .  it’s grow up time.

Know there will a time of displaying where we will see the fruit of others, that will be blessed, helped and affected by that which He has formed.

But the most important thing in this hour will be those things that are not visible that have been impacted by pouring out of lives so that others may make it.

Know that within His hands all power will be released upon us because the time has come and it will be up to us if we will fair well or shrink back.

What we do when no one is watching. . . what will we stand for, when others will take a seat….

“This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.”  So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel.  But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him,”   Jeremiah 18:1-4.

The LORD’s Redemptive Purpose

Don’t you love how the LORD’s redemptive purpose operates in our lives and how its greatest impact can be brought forth in us… in times when we are in a narrow place?

He is truly a Master when it comes to catching fish. . . while most would look for only the big ones so that they receive the largest quantity of fish.

But when the Master fishes. .  the value of the catch is determined not by the size of the fish, but by that which He placed in them that is not yet visible to the natural eye.

It is also determined by the quality of the fish. . . that one who carries greatness and goes back to what He created in them before the foundation of the earth.

Nonsense?  Catch some fish and see!

Time to cast new nets.  Fish on the right side. . .

Our Journey

We are on a journey and all in all, the LORD chose our destination, but the conclusion and minor details are being formed by our actions/ reactions even by what we do/ say.

As we continue to be faithful to His word, we must allow Him to perfect things in us . . . .

So as we watch/ pray and keep our eyes well focused upon that which is around us.

There will be times that the LORD will speak to us in ways that we may not get it in the beginning . . but as we go . . . we know He is right along side of us, encouraging us as we go.

No matter what happens this day . . .  let’s keep our mind clear and our spirit calm.

Being ready to come in and out before the LORD as we go on to deal with challenges of our day.

Let’s be resolved not to miss a day of new downloads and visitation, and as they come we will hear, and remember as He speaks.

Prayer Partners & Warriors

Let’s cover our millennials who are going through so much right now, trying to understand.

They need the love of God, parents, and everyone who can add to their lives in a significant way.

Praying for truth in relationships that may better frame their lives.

I am crying out for those who hear their assignment and know how to connect and to assist them along their journey.

The Watchmen & Gatekeepers’ Call

I have been in the trenches studying prevailing prayer, travailing prayer, and varying levels of intercession, specifically the duties of Watchmen and Gatekeepers.

Many may perceive that they are one and the same, but they are very different in the manner by which they fulfill the LORD’s objective in the earth.

It carries a weighty discipline and a higher level of accountability must be walked out.

I believe many want to be trained and prepared, but because they just haven’t been exposed to the teaching that is right in God’s word.

Keeping watch in prior years was known but not popular.  Keeping watch begins with us . . . but the list goes from observing and dealing with the nearest things in our lives to events past and present, to things that are in way in a distance in time.

Many are convinced that there is no need to go any deeper but to stay in the shallow waters of their reality.

What appears so far away is really closer than we think, but it is difficult to discern if so many are asleep.

But there is an awaking that is coming.  Everything is in motion whether we want to see it or keep our eyes closed.

Our vision must expand from our local communities, to global spheres as well.

It includes learning how to see in the dark and stand in the light to see the darkness rapidly approaching with the ability to discern which one is the most serious/ significant.

Watchmen/ Gatekeeping Assignments are not known for their visibility or recognition.

Most of what it entails can’t at certain times be spoken until it is completed. . . so as not to compromise the mission.
