Word of the Lord for October 2013


In this word I will share with you what the Lord has revealed to me, and how I came to understand his heart concerning various issues.  Issues that we may be facing during these coming months as well as onto the end of this year.  When we look upon this government, the spiritual climate of our nation, and the warnings from the true prophetic vessels many questions that come to mind.  It is clear that major things are going on at the same time.  If we miss what the Lord is saying to us it could jeopardize the stance we need to have in order to overcome coming crisis.  Failing to understand certain truths could hinder our growth in the face of serious circumstances.  The Lord begun to tell me that we must allow our faith in His promises to kick in with strong survival instincts when needed most.

Throughout God’s word we see the enemy’s plans uprooted, we see people delivered by own God’s hand, and we witness a rising up of those who were empowered with His strength and determination.  (This is a result of His divine nature and His power to overcome the works of the enemy.)  We also see His army arise with great exploits.  A remnant graced with faith to overcome and demonstrate to others how to go into new levels in Him.  We are living in such a season.  It is important to see the truth according to God’s word and understand how certain issues will play out in times to come.

About two weeks ago the Lord spoke to me and warned that He was about to shake the government and nation at it’s very core.  He said to brace myself and to prepare for it.  I asked him several questions, some of which were not answered, but I knew in my spirit that the Word of God bears witness to times like these.  Times where God dealt with a government and nation, while at the same time He blessed and protected a certain people.  We have been challenged to pray!  Prayer prepares us for things that are coming and reveals to us prophetic revelations concerning what’s going on and the motives behind them.  The shifting occurs in that which we are able to change through the dynamic of prayer. (Daniel 2:19-22)   The more I sought the Lord the more He began to show me that there is a key mindset essential for overcoming in this hour.  No matter how many preparations we make we must walk in certain realities to overcome and stand firm in our faith.

He begin to speak about the level of fear and confusion that’s present now, and how it sets an atmosphere for making serious mistakes.  Mistakes that set up loyalties in areas we do not need at this time.  The Lord said, “When the truth of righteousness is being spoken to us it is our responsibility to hear and to obey.  We must make sure that we have not established our own understanding of righteousness.  Thereby walking in areas of iniquity that we don’t realize are wrong and as a result seeing the My judgment as being unfair.”  The Lord added, “That the arrogance of a people who have reasoned their own righteousness in the face of the truth will cry out in this day.”  We must pray that the truth according of God’s word will rule in their hearts over their own worldly beliefs (Ezekiel 33).

He said if we would see things through his eyes and if we knew where He is taking us.  We would walk in a stability and a strengthened understanding of our purpose.  Knowing exactly where He is calling us to be.

1).    Our thinking must not be just about what we are going through.  Nor should it reflect where we want to be, but now is the time where we must mature and operate in the place that He, the Father is calling us to be.

2).    The Lord is taking and restoring us.  He is shifting us to walk in a greater place of strength, humility and awareness.  It is the winning strategy and a foundation that He established in His word.  We must change and adjust our minds so that our thinking brings right into the fulfillment of our destinies.  We must walk into standing in the strength of his promises no matter what we see while not allowing them to change our thinking.  No matter we see we will win, we will conquer, and we will overcome.  If we begin to live, breathe, and walk in the manifestation of those words.  We will see exploits, we will do exploits, and we will be what we has called us to be.  The reality is that we were made for this and the very things that we have been fighting for we have been called to.  We were assigned to these things and we are coming into the time when we shall possess them.  It is a part of walking out our prophetic destiny.  We carry within us the spiritual DNA to overcome.  There is no more time to waver in what we believe.  He has prepared for us these things and as we see it, it is fully manifested before us.  These are heart issues that can affect our level of faith (Deuteronomy 8:2).

These are His very words:

“I am releasing upon my people required assignments.  Some of which you may be fully aware of and others you are just beginning to realize now.  They’re being given to you according to your calling and function in this hour.  In many ways, your areas of responsibility are expanding and it is important for them to be carried out.  It is vital to set your priorities in place and set your house in order.  How your life progresses from this time has everything to do with this discipline.  Align your life according to me and my word and walk in my spirit and the grace that I have freely given to you.  Every step which you make is very vital, so walk circumspectly.  Check your motives, but help others where they can be helped and are open to being helped.  Because your time is valuable and it doesn’t need to be wasted on unnecessary actions.  Reality is setting into many now.  Everyone will be assessed by what is in their heart and not what has been spoken out of their mouths.  So speak honestly, act deliberately and walk purposefully.

Know that I have placed a new spirit and a new heart in you that you may walk according to my precepts.  To those who have heard my call and have determined to turn their lives toward me,  “Don’t look through the eyes of your own ability but see with the eyes of your faith that I am building up in you.”  As you prevail in prayer you will persevere and protect yourselves from obstacles that will try to hinder you.  Know that much will be accomplished in you even in times of great trouble and confusion upon the land.

You will see even signs in the heavens, changes in the sun, the moon, and the stars coming upon the land and great shakings, but do not fear.  Prepare your hearts to live your lives according to my covenant for these are all precursors of the things that are to come.  Humble yourselves before me, you are arriving at a key time for a key purpose.  Don’t worry because I will be working through you, for I will be strengthening you, sharpening you, making you and molding you.  I am providing you with the ability to succeed now.  This is the place of my grace.  The release of my wisdom that is grooming you is getting you ready now.  So be quick to hear and walk in obedience, because the enemy has been preparing during this time as well.  This is a time of visitation.  I am releasing and rendering according to the works of men’s hands.  So if those hands have purposed evil then in this time the weapon they have formed shall fall upon them.  Those whose hands have sown good even for the sake of others lives will reap a harvest of rewards to come.

I am dealing with that which has stood in their place and declared that they were “God”.  In this time, in this hour, I am coming for those words.  This is a serious word to false teachers, false prophets, and those who are deceived and are deceiving others.  Know that there is now a shifting at the gates of the city.  Great change is about to occur.  So continue to stand at your watch.  Watch and warn because this is a time of reckoning.  The assessment of leadership is going on right now in the house of the Lord, and the  shaking has already has begun in the camp of the enemy.  Men will be accountable for their actions.  Know and understand that the key to your strength is in your relationship with me.  To the extent that you “know” me is to the “measure” you will do great exploits.

The position of faith in the promises that I have spoken to you should match your belief in what I have ordained in your life to fulfill.  So stand as a member of the army before me your Commander and Chief.  For you are the army that I have declared.  So stand up as a soldier so that you may conquer, because you can not command that which you refuse to prepare or assemble yourself for.  You are engaged in the this battle because I have declared war, says the Lord.  Against sin, against the shedding of innocent blood, and against those who stand for unrighteousness while boldly declaring they will prevail.  Be ready to stand and declare the truth of my word without compromise.  I will prepare you and you will stand and declare, “It is so!”  For you will be battle ready, and even able to succeed.

As the time is being declared that which is to come, will come.  I am setting in order and in place my provision, my promises, even my very power which I placed upon you this day.  I will lay up the wealth of the wicked and release it upon my righteous says the Lord.  And the trump will sound the timing, that which is to come, will come, says the Lord.”

“During the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision.  Then Daniel praised the God of heaven and said: “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his.  He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others.  He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him”   Daniel 2:19-22.

“And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no”   Deuteronomy. 8:2.

“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, . . .And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them”   Ezekiel 36:26.

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works”   2 Corinthians 11:13.

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God”   Romans 8:14.

Two visions two days ago:

1).     I saw a transferring of very long and large metal tubes of some kind, into a compartment some were in a capsule form and others long rods as well as large round pipes that appeared to be placed in this compartment as well.  I literally woke up and then went back to sleep only to see these transporting of objects I didn’t see people.  This seem to go on for a time, I woke up again and went back to see these long objects being packed into the compartments.

2).     I saw a Jewish family and they were placing some holy vessels into a large ornate box.  I saw a large tallit, large Menorah, small book of prayers, a silver cup, a brown wooden block, a shofar — I heard the Lord say the words: preservation of a nation.

I will share prophetically about the dream/vision the Lord revealed to me concerning The Word of the Lord for the Year 2013 Part 2  Fall: having to do with the season, now.

Below is a word by my daughter which truly speaks to what God is saying in this time.

Becoming Our True Selves

By: Rachel Elisabeth

If you do nothing you get nothing.  If you don’t fight you can’t win.  Many of us have given up.  We feel so defeated by all of the things that oppose us and weigh us down daily that we have lost hope.  Some of you have wondered why God would put you in a place where you would be so weak that you are overcome by your circumstances.  I’ve come to encourage you and completely change your perspective.  Whether you allow these words to empower you or not is up to you, because truthfully it’s always been up to you.

God didn’t put us here on this earth in the midst of our greatest adversaries because He thought we were weak.  He did it because He knew we were strong.  He saw that inside us sleeps a limitless potential that has the power overcome all obstacles.  He saw that inside us was something great.  Something that could establish and regain all lost ground for the Kingdom of God.  The more we asked God for strength the more He allowed us to face.  Looking from the wrong perspective one would feel like when they asked God for strength He only made life harder on them, but that view point is a delusion.  A delusion that God’s people have carried for to long.  The reality is God didn’t need to give us strength because we were already made to be strong.  So instead God put us in a place of hardship in different areas of our lives not so that we might become weaker but that we would emerge strong.  I tell you a truth true strength can only be born out of the ashes of true weakness.  The God nature in you can not be strong when the human nature in you is not weak.  It is only when we are pushed to our limits and forced to create something from nothing that we can achieve true greatness.

Do not  waste what you have mistaken for hardship, when it is really a opportunity for you to excel.  What you thought was GOD being cruel was God being kind.  What appeared to be your greatest obstacle is really your greatest opportunity.  An opportunity to be come stronger, brighter, wiser, sharper, and greater than you have ever been before.  God has put so much pressure on you because He is daring you to unlock your true potential.  He is calling for you to walk in the nature of your true self.  You will look more like him than you have ever looked and you will not be stopped by anything if you take this time to transform into who God has called you to be.  You are so strong that even with your potential lying dormant all this time without putting froth your true effort you have survived.

Now is the time for you to arise from the ashes a new.  Now is the time you will fight your way through.  But in order to do that you must abandon the self pity that has bound you and you must empower your mind to point of change.  This is the moment that will reclaim your future victories giving you the means to surpass even your greatest of foes.  But to grasp this moment before it slips by, you must realize who made you and who you really are.  You must cling to those truths.  You must now focus the energy you wasted in your weakened mindset on becoming the true you.  You must find out who God has called you to be and you must be that person specifically.  Only then can your life fall divinely into place.

When you truly achieve that the very fabric of this world will recognize you as the child of God you were destined to specifically be and it will treat you differently.  You will find that which was impossible is now possible, that which was hard is now easy, and that which was a problem can now be solved with much grace and peace.

Before you stand strong as a weapon without limits in the hand of God there is one more battle you must face.  No one can fight this battle for you.  This is a battle that you alone must win.

The battle you are about fight  is against the only one who needed to be defeated in order for the potential of your true self to be revealed… and that person is you.

Word of the Lord for October 2013 — 3 Comments

  1. Thank you for this!!!!  The Lord has been working on my heart for years and I have finally made the decision to give my life completely to him and use me as he has chosen.  It is a very scary thing but yet, peacefully thrilling.  I ask for prayers. I ask for the courage to just completely leave behind the ‘ways of the world’ and surrender to him whole heartedly. I ask for the stillness and for open eyes and ears so that I allow his way to guide my direction instead of trying to make my own direction.  He has been on my heart for years and only when I am pretty much at rock bottom is when I turn completely to him.

    • Dear Nicole,
      Thanks indeed for your comment.
      Please know that we and our prayer teams will be praying for you as requested.
      Blessings in Christ,

  2. Matthew 10:16
    King James Version (KJV)
    16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

    New King James Version (NKJV)
