What is in your heart, and what are the boundaries that you have set? As the place where your passions and emotions dwell, and the place where you make resolutions and incline yourself one way or another regarding a matter, what are you doing to protect your heart? What and who you allow within the boundaries of your heart will either purify or pollute your spirit, causing you to act and speak accordingly. What you speak will create either life or death. Your heart is where your prophetic destiny is birthed, and you can choose to nurture the seed I have placed in you or defile it. Allowing offense to take root will cause bitter weeds to grow that spread disease, leaving no room for the movement of My Spirit, but forgiveness fertilizes your heart, allowing Me, as Master Gardener to move freely. Remember, the seed I have planted within you is incorruptible, but it needs to be cultivated to bring forth the abundance of life that I have for you, and it is abundant indeed. Prov. 4:23-27, “Above everything else, guard your heart; for it is the source of life’s consequences. Keep crooked speech out of your mouth, banish deceit from your lips. Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze on what lies in front of you. Level the path of your feet, let all your ways be properly prepared; then deviate neither right nor left; and keep your foot far from evil.”
Have I not done great things on your behalf, and will I not continue to do so? Look to Me; look for Me. I am even now at work, even as I was when I was there in the world. My Spirit is moving – He is not at a standstill. Many decried Me on earth. Even My own disciples did not see all I was doing, but that did not prevent Me from moving towards the cross. It will not hinder Me now from accomplishing My purpose. Break through occurs when you choose to press into Me rather than focus on the temporary and that which is external. Much of what you concern yourself is within the realm of the natural. You must choose to move towards your cross, even as I did, to accomplish your ultimate purpose. Yes, I’ve called My people to make a difference, but the difference must first come from within and work its way outward, so that the changes you make are of My Spirit, not of the flesh. The great things I do in and through you will originate in Spirit before manifesting in the natural, not the other way around. Ps. 111, “I will wholeheartedly give thanks to ADONAI in the council of the upright and in the assembly, the deeds of ADONAI are great, greatly desired by all who enjoy them. His work is full of majesty and splendor, and His righteousness continues forever. He has gained renown for His wonders. ADONAI is merciful and compassionate. He gives food to those who fear Him. He remembers His covenant forever. He shows His people how powerfully He works by giving them the nations as their heritage. The works of His hands are truth and justice; all His precepts can be trusted. They have been established forever and ever, to be carried out truly and honestly. He sent redemption to His people and decreed that His covenant should last forever. His name is holy and fearsome – the first and foremost point of wisdom is the fear of ADONAI; all those living by it gain good common sense. His praise stands forever.”
Some of you are still seeing men as though they were trees, misconstruing the vibrancy of the truth. To see partially is to understand partially, and to understand partially is dangerous in both the natural and spiritual realm. For this reason, I desire you to develop your spiritual sight, clear and focused. It is not enough for you to rely on another’s vision and insight. You must develop your own by seeking to see from My perspective. I will not guide you astray for I am not a God of opinions – I AM Truth. Allow Me to touch your eyes once more that you might see and walk in the full understanding of My revelation. 2 Kings 6:16-17, “His servant said to him, ‘Oh, My master, this is terrible! What are we going to do?’ He answered, ‘Don’t be afraid – those who are with us outnumber those who are with them!’ Elisha prayed, ‘ADONAI, I ask you to open his eyes, so that he can see.’ Then ADONAI opened the young man’s eyes, and he saw: there before him, all around Elisha, the mountain was covered with horses and fiery chariots.”
Movement cause friction. As My Spirit strategically moves you into alignment with My purposes for this time, refuse to allow uneasiness to arise within you. The changes that are being made are for your benefit and that of My Kingdom. Remember, too, that the enemy is also moving things, seeking to destroy your peace by instigating unsettling situations that will attempt to strike fear and dread into your heart. When these situations arise, move toward Me, creating your own spiritual friction. Make him uncomfortable with the fact that you are safely ensconced in My hand, and that My movements have become yours. As you commit yourself to moving with My Spirit, the world will see fluidity and grace, rather than harsh, abrasiveness and begin to wonder to what tune you are dancing. John 14:1, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.”
Mercy paves the road to repentance, judgement blocks it, and hypocrisy will suffocate it. Does not My mercy stay My hand against the wicked, and is it not My grace that sustains the righteous? My people, learn mercy. Mercy does not condone sin, but rather mercy gives permission to the spiritually destitute to lift their eyes to the light of My love in search of redemption. Judgement will only cause their heads to hang lower, and should they lift their eyes only to see hypocrisy, their hearts will be further hardened. Mercy is a conscious decision to write in the sand of a person’s life in the midst of deep humiliation, shame, and disgrace, and intercept their Accuser, so that they may lift their eyes and see only Me – their Savior. John 8:3-11, the brought “in a woman who had been caught committing adultery and made her stand in the center of the group…but Jesus bent down and began writing in the dust with His finger…Standing up, Yeshua said to her, ‘Where are they? Has no one condemned you?’ She said, ‘No one, sir.’ Yeshua said, ‘Neither do I condemn you. Now go, and don’t sin anymore.’”
Let the redeemed of the LORD say so! Are you not Mine? Have I not redeemed you and called you by name? Your inward thoughts and intents are not hidden from Me, neither your secret fears and gravest concerns. But, My Child, you belong to Me, and I have asked you to surrender them to Me. Freedom comes in surrender. This is contrary to what you have been told, but it is consistent with the walk of faith. If you believe, say so, and then act accordingly. You cannot walk in both fear and faith, for they are directly opposed to one another and will lead you down two very different roads. When fears assail you, declare forth My Name and release all to Me. Sometimes the road of faith will lead you through the shadow of death, but remember – it is but a shadow, and then it only appears because the light of My Presence is shining upon you. Ps. 23, “ADONAI is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He has me lie down in grassy pastures, He leads me by quiet water, He restores my inner person. He guides me in right paths for the sake of His Own Name. Even if I pass through death-dark ravines, I will fear no disaster; for You are with me; Your rod and staff reassure me. You prepare a table for me, even as my enemies watch; You anoint my head with oil from an overflowing cup. Goodness and grace will pursue me every day of my life; and I will live in the house of ADONAI for years and years to come.”
There is much division right now, and you must understand that this is characteristic of the times before I return. Division is caused when there is a clash between truth and falsehood. My Word is truth. My Word causes division. What ought not to be is division between My people. Being unified in this time is what separates My people from the world. Be purposeful in your unity and love, one for another. Right now this takes conscious effort, but it will come more easily to you as you daily yield to the Spirit, choosing to walk in love rather than hate. Be My Standard to the world in character and nature, so that people may see you and your works and glorify My Father in heaven. I Cor. 1:9-10, “God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.” Heb. 4:12, “For the Word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
Let your attitude be that it will be unto you according to My Word. Don’t allow your life to be dictated by negative things others, and even you, have said about yourself, but rise up and declare what I have spoken over you. Some have let go of the promises My Spirit gave long ago, believing that you must have misunderstood, or that you in some way sinned and missed all I had for you. I declare it is not so! Stir up the prophetic words given to you, cling to them and come into agreement with them, for their fulfillment is near. Only believe! Luke 1:37-38, “ ‘For no word from God will ever fail.’ ‘I am the Lord’s servant,’ Mary answered. ‘May your word to me be fulfilled.’”
I love the Word of God! I desire to spend time in the Word and in prayer. The Holy Spirit is my best friend and I am constantly learning new and amazing things from Him. His Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. His Word dwelling in me keeps me from sin. I walk in holiness because I meditate on His Word and I am uncomfortable with anything that doesn’t align with the standards of the Holy Spirit, whose temple I am. I am developing my spiritual senses which enable me to move in the prophetic. I can see where He is leading me, hear what He is telling me, speak what He is saying to me, smell His fragrance in everything, and touch Him through my prayers. He is everything to me and He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His namesake. I am quick to listen, slow to speak, immediate in my obedience because His will is my priority. I submit to Him in everything. In Him I live and move and have my very being, and it is my delight to please Him.
Pray specifically for:
- An increased desire for His Word & prayer
- An increased desire to walk in holiness
- A development of your spiritual senses
- That you will be a delight to Him
The Lord is multiplying our church. He is multiplying the people, He is multiplying our income, He is multiplying our spiritual gifts and teaching us to walk in them. We are able to witness, see our community come to the Lord and discipled for His plans and purposes. Our every need is met and we are great stewards of all that the Lord has blessed us with. The Lord is bringing us all those who will catch the vision imparted by the Lord and held by our pastors, and they assist in seeing it come to pass. He is sending those who will help with the upkeep and maintenance, those who will help us with our children and youth, those who want to selflessly do the work of the ministry, beginning with me. The Lord is helping us prepare the soil of our neighborhoods for the influx of His presence. When the rain comes, and it will come quickly, our community is set free, delivered, and changed because of Christ in us, the hope of glory. There will be a noticeable difference in our community, such that the governmental authorities will come to us wanting to know what is going on. They will encourage our involvement in the community, including local schools, because they cannot refute what the Lord has done and the results that He has given us in our outreach. Thornton, Northglenn, and the Adams County area will be known as a place of His blessing, and because we reside here the county will be blessed. The fear of the Lord will come upon our community, and they will willingly give to the work of the Lord. We will be known as a selfless church, but also one that is unashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There is no fear in us. We will train and send many people out who will reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are the head and not the tail, we are above and not beneath. We are blessed wherever our feet trod, going in and going out. Our incomes will be blessed for the furtherance of the Gospel and we will prosper in all that we set our hands to do. The Lord will establish us in this county, and we will become a blueprint for communities across Colorado and the country. No weapon formed against us will prosper, and the Lord will open for us His good treasure. We are people who obey the voice of the Lord immediately. We overcome the tactics of the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. We are a church that follows the Lord, stopping where He stops, going where He does. We are filled with the Spirit of the Living God, and worship the Great I AM. We operate in victory, not defeat. Nothing is too hard for our God! We don’t cater to the whims of people, but worship in spirit and in truth. Everyone the people of our congregation come in contact with are brought to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, because Christ in us is irresistible. Everyone who joins with Destiny are disciples, knowing and applying Scripture, growing daily in their walk with the Lord. We are part of the Body of Christ, and the gates of hell cannot and will not prevail against us.
