Re-Evaluate, Re-examine and Reset yourself for advancing God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven through you.
The Slate Will Be Cleaned
Your Life Will Be Changed
Your Platform Will Be Re-Arranged
UPDATE: Update in your relationship with your Heavenly Father with a new level of intimacy and maturity. You are full-grown sons and daughters, and you must relate through taking responsibility to walk in maturity.
Luke 12:48b For everyone to whom much is given from him much will be required and to whom much has been committed of him they will ask the more.
James 4:17 Therefore, to him who know to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
God will cause you to look within, so you can begin to take a new level of authority in your life and your spheres of responsibility.
You will need to:
Update with your vision; without it, you will decline in your growth.
Update with your purpose to stay on focus.
Update with your gifting and God’s grace gifts upon your life, so you will not lose them.
Update in your relationships. People grow and change, and you need to change just to converse and relate with them on a new level.
RELATE: Confront reality of weaknesses, strengths, whatever you failed at, so you can succeed and experience new victories. Be able to relate with God, man and your future.
Joshua 14:12 Because of obedience, Caleb was able to relate with God on another level and was able to put a demand on his inheritance in Christ Jesus.
1 Samuel 12:19-23 Because of David’s repentance and turnaround taking responsibility, he was able to get back on track and go to the next level.
Both Caleb and David confronted issues in their life, and they were able to relate with God on a different level. When you update with people, the vision, your purpose and you confront reality. Then you are able to relate in the now with things in your life. In 2018, you will need to be able to put a higher demand on the anointing and trusting God on a higher level.
ACTIVATE: Demonstrate the power of Love, Faith and Forgiveness. Activate with new momentum to confront your future by updating with the different areas of your life.
Update realignment with your assignment
Update with new methods of war.
Update your appearance, by cleaning out and cleaning up.
Update your abilities and your skills.
Update with new strategies both natural and spiritual.
Update in relationship with your heavenly Father and People.
“SECURE YOUR BORDERS AND PREPARE FOR WAR”
“You can only have authority in that which you have overcome”
Jesus overcame death, hell and the grave, and He holds the keys to now exercise authority over all the powers of darkness and evil.
I hear the Lord saying to Shore up your Walls, Secure your Boundaries, Strengthen your Foundation and Set Order to anything that is out of order. Bind up the strongman and clean out the house (this temple). Make preparation for a fresh visitation of My Holy Spirit upon your personal life, your family, your churches, your businesses, and your spheres of influence. For this will be a time of deliverance, healingand impartation of a Fresh Vision to launch you to the Next Level in your life, family, ministry and business.
Isaiah 54:2, 3 Strengthen and stretch out your tent stakes and prepare for the visitations that I will send upon you
Exodus 12:11-14 God passed throughout Egypt and it was a signwith power that brought deliverance to Israel.
The Lord says, “I will judge some things, I will devour some things, I will destroy some things to set my people free to be a people with a vision and a purpose. That which has been locked upfrom you, I am giving you the Keys to unlock the doors of Healing, Breakthrough, Deliverance, Prosperity and New Strategies of Warfare.
2018 and forward, thousands of souls will come clean from sin, false identity, drugs, alcohol, immorality and idol worship. I am opening a new door for the harvesting of souls that will begin to forma Joel’s army upon the earth. You will know this is of Me as I will send global winds that will carry Me throughout the nations of the earth. The devil is ready to spill out upon the earth, to rob, to steal, to kill and to destroy, but My Church, My Bride, will arise with the Sword of War to drive back, to drive out and to destroy the powers of darkness.
Secure Your Borders for as I will cleanse, I will also heal, and I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust. Joel l2:25.
Prepare for growth, Increased authority, Inspired vision and Kingdom of God results.
Let me start with this. When I was given this word on Jan 12, 2018, I saw a calendar with the date February 22 on it. I believe there will be a significant happening on February 22, something that confirms the word and confirms how God uses the foolish things of this world to confound the wise.
“There will be an explosion in the spirit realm that causes an upheaval in this dimension. I see it as a tidal wave coming from heaven to earth, bringing the substance of the Kingdom with it.
It is the voice of the one who says “ I have a chosen people”
And “Out of obscurity I have called you”
Prepare for the season of the last becoming first, and shepherd boys being anointed as kings.
There is a company of prophets, they will walk the earth in this hour. They carry a Samuel commissioning.
Their words will open doors to seasons and destinys.
The leaders God will appoint in this season will be the men and women who are currently in servant positions, He is raising up the janitors, laborers, those you have not heard of yet, those you have thought of as last God is bringing to the front of the line.
The church is about to experience a refining, the judgements that people have made in the past will not stand in this day. God is about to raise up the least expected and the uninvited. The Davids are coming in from the pasture, these prophets will call them in, this new Samuel generation will beckon for them.
The Lord says an old Saul system is about to be replaced. Dont stand with Saul, stand with the Davids. Though you have never seen them before they will sing the songs of the Lord and help give structure to this end time church.”
Have you ever had people file you and mislabel your file? When you try to re-file yourself, people get unhappy with you. They want you their way, like you are some kind of burger king franchise.
When David slew Goliath, his whole family got put on the spot. His big brother was a general in Saul’s army, and people were asking, “How come he didn’t go?” Your decision to follow Jesus always seems to upset some folks and sometimes those closest to you are the first place you feel it. Not everybody was happy when the prodigal came home. Just ask the elder brother. He probably had to give his old bedroom back. When you dance at man’s funeral, it is hard to celebrate their resurrection.
When Jesus stepped out of the role of ‘carpenters son’, they got offended. When you follow the Lord, some that have known you the longest will get offended and probably let you know it.
How can we be so open to those we don’t know and closed to those toward someone we do know? A few years back I was preaching a certain truth and people acted like they never even heard what I was saying. Along comes someone else and says the same thing and people acted like it was a divine revelation.
All of us ought to on a regular basis turn the channel and fine tune our receiver. Are you ready to receive?

I am hearing the Lord say that even though His people have cried out for reformation they have been slow to allow for culture change in their lives and in the church. When reformation takes place culture must change. True reformation transforms everything around it. You have cried out for reformation but you have been content with “church as usual”. You want reformation as long as there is no obligation for it to change your personal life or your family.
God says this coming wind, the ones the intercessors have contended for, will be a wind of utter transformation. You will not see church the same way as you have before. God is about to put you in circumstances that will work in your life as a crucible, destroying some even long held religious beliefs to rebuild you to be a person that can cooperate with the current move of God.
Get ready for complete devastation to your existing religious systems, I hear God saying He wants you, not your religion. When He has all of you He can make you Christ-like, He is reforming the church as He is reforming individuals in the church.
There is a purifying coming to Gods church and His people. It will burn off the dross of old, unscriptural, inaccurate beliefs and theology that have actually crippled the church and kept it from advancement. Watch the denominations. I hear God saying to watch the denominations. In the next few years they will be challenged like they never have before. They will begin to work together. They will see the value in each other. Denominations will be challenged, but it will not be the organization but the believers in the denomination that rise to the challenge.
The Lord is saying I have been looking for harmony in the church. Different instruments and parts being played but they all play together and sound marvelous. This sound is coming out of the church that God is now reforming.
You have said you want revival, but some have failed to allow the Spirit of God to revive you individually. You have said you want to see reformation, but some have been stiff necked when God tried to melt your pride. Those who allow the Spirit to do His perfect work and those who have become humble will be trend setters in the church today.
God says get ready for the face of the church to change. He is maturing her, He is equipping her, and she will begin to be a mighty force on the earth today. The church will rise up, but it must have a culture change, God is going to deal with a culture of mistrust, back-biting, carelessness, white-washing, and He is going to begin to deal with the hearts of leaders. Leaders will begin to repent of church as usual and God will accelerate His work in their lives. They will begin to build the church once again and no longer just seek to sustain an ungodly culture. The Spirit of God will accomplish this.
This morning as I was praying and thinking about what you’re going through, the Lord showed me a vision.
I saw that you are trying to move forward, but you’re getting so much pushback that, it’s very difficult for you to get up in the morning and move forward. And this is what the Lord showed me, the enemy is trying to make you feel like you are in a season of regression, rather than progression. And you feel like you want to advance, you want to advance the kingdom, you want your life to advance, but you feel like you are taking steps backward.
And the Lord just says to you, because you are under such a warfare, you cannot trust your emotions. Because the Lord says, “There are many advances you’re actually making as you worship me, as you’re seeking my face,” the Lord says you’re actually making advances but you cannot see where you are going because you’re under such intense warfare.
Now, I want to say to you right now, the only way I could explain it is, the heavens are violent. As we look at many nations around the world, there’s a lot of upheaval. Think about Korea, and what’s happening in the Koreas. Think about the people within the range of Kim Jong-un, that’s many nations. Think about what’s happening in the Middle East, with such persecution of believers. And then in the United States, upheaval, upheaval, upheaval.
But the Lord just says “You are not subject to that upheaval, and I will cause you to go into a season of advancement if you resist the thought Satan is putting in your head that you’re actually in regression,” the Lord says, “The kingdom of God is ever increasing. So, the only way you can fail is to believe the lie, and to be subject to the pressure that Satan is putting you under.”
You are not called to be subject to that pressure. You are not called to be one who sits down and says, “Well, I might as well just give up.” You are called to overcome. You are called to advance. You are called to be triumphant.
And so the Lord says this is the day to rise up, this is not a day to sit down and give in to the violent pushing that the kingdom of darkness is doing and working against you, then you will be defeated. But the Lord says, “If you would choose my nature and my character and my ability, you will surely break through.”

Luke 3:2 While Annas and Caiaphas were high priests,[a] the word of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. 3 And he went into all the region around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins, 4 as it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying:
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord;
Make His paths straight.
5 Every valley shall be filled
And every mountain and hill brought low;
The crooked places shall be made straight
And the rough ways smooth;
6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’
The Greek word for “prepare” in the above passage is Hetoimazo: and it means to prepare, provide or make ready! John’s preaching had a strong element of getting people ready for the coming of the Messiah.
My concern as I look at the church today is that our understanding of what “get ready” means is not what it used to be. When the announcer for the fight exclaims: “GET READY TO RUMBLE!”, to the crowd at the fight it means to grab another drink, get popcorn etc. But to the fighters “get ready” means so much more.
To the fighters “get ready” means years of training, lifting weights and cardio. It means drinking strange health drinks and eating a strict diet. So much goes into the battle that is about to take place. The call to get ready is much different for the combatants than it is for the spectators.
When John was calling all of Israel to “get ready”, that call involved baptism, representative of death and resurrection. In other words John’s call was not for the people of Israel to become spectators to the ministry of Jesus, it was calling for an utter reconstruction of who they were, a dying to the old and coming alive to something new.
It applies today. You need to get ready for what God is about to do in your life. Please don’t get ready as a spectator, and don’t be a spectator, get active in this battle that the Lord has already won. Do something different today to prepare for what God has planned for your life.
God I pray you would ready your people for the great move of God you want to bring about in their life and in the world today. Let us know be spectators in the Kingdom but active participants, in Jesus name, ~Amen.

Psalm 91 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler[a]
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
In the wake of what recently occurred in Manchester England, I think it’s important that we talk about terror. Terror is extreme fear, and those who would use terror against others are known as terrorists, this is something we all know, but few of us know how to respond in terrifying situations.
There is an old saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Scripture is clear, God does not want you to be afraid, of anything, or anyone for that matter, but rather than seek a cure for terror and fear, wouldn’t it be better if God gave us a preventative measure?
Thankfully He does. The Bible says in Ps 91 that the prevention to terror is to dwell in the secret place and therefore under the shadow of the Almighty. In other words God’s presence (aka perfect love) removes all fear from our life. Now this is a process, but as we live each day in the presence of God and His love fear is overcome.
When I was in the 4th grade there were two 6th graders that bullied me daily. I walked to school oftentimes fearful that I would have to face these two miniature terrorists. One day as a young man I was praying, and the Lord spoke to my heart and brought up that season of my life. He said to me “What if your Dad had been with you, walking you to school everyday?” Now my Dad is not a big man, but he certainly towers over 6th grade ruffians, and I know he would have struck enough fear in their hearts to keep them at bay.
God was giving me an example of Ps 91, when we are in God’s presence, there is no need to fear. The Lion of Judah will strike fear in the heart of even the most terrifying of enemies.
So as we are reminded that terror is alive and well in our time, lets remember that God’s presence is our protection, and we can find refuge und His wings. It is my prayer that all of America returns to God again, that as a nation we can know this wonderful protective power.
Father you protect me, my spouse, and my children each and every day. I thank you for your ever-presence, and for removing fear from my life. Let us walk every day in the boldness that comes from knowing we are protected by the unmatched power of the Almighty! In Jesus Name ~Amen

Proverbs 13:12New King James Version (NKJV)
12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.
Have you been to that point where you are just about to give up on your dreams? I think we have all been to that place where the hope we once had for something seems to be waning and is almost gone. It seems that at those points, often times, God will send a prophetic word to us to ignite the flame of hope once again.
When He does that be reassured, this is in God’s plan for your life. I believe that there are no “waiting rooms” or “holding patterns” for the people of God. God has a purpose for your life, and if it doesn’t seem like your walking in it right now, that doesn’t give you license to just wait around in some cosmic waiting room, no, God has you in a season of preparation.
If you are waiting and hoping you should also be preparing. If God does not have you operating fully in the calling of God on your life, you need to ask yourself how can I be equipped to become the version of myself that God needs me to be to fulfill this call. He is requiring something of you. You must prepare and get ready.
getting ready can involve:
It is important to note that God operates on a very specific time table. He may have you in this preparation phase because you need to be introduced to this world in a “such a time as this moment.” Jesus came to earth and operated in a very specific timing (Galatians 4:4). Listen, how encouraging is it to realize that your gifts and callings are so valuable to the people of God that He wants to introduce it to the Kingdom at the most strategic time. It’s time to get ready!
God we are listening for your voice. We dare not move ahead of you of fall behind. Make or calling clear, and let us run in the things of God. In Jesus name ~Amen.

Proverbs 17:17 New King James Version (NKJV)
17 A friend loves at all times,
And a brother is born for adversity.
If you have not read a post of mine yet where I proudly state I have five sons, here is your notification. I love my five son’s. They have moments of incredible brilliance, kindness and strength. However, they are kids, so they can be a very frustrating crew at times as well. In case you have not had opportunity to spend time with a group of boys let me make you aware of something. They like to fight. Whether they know what they are doing or not they jockey for position, brag, and compete with one another every chance they get. Though on certain days this feels to me like a high level attack of the Devil, ultimately it is just boys being boys.
Yes they will grow. They will learn to put others before themselves. Sometimes there is such evidence of this it makes a fathers heart proud.
Many of you know, however, that this is not always the case in the church today. Sometimes men of God act just like my sons on their worst day. Unfortunately the church is still full of brothers who are competitive, wrestle for position, and step on others to find their own promotion in the things of God.
A friend loves at all times, but a brothers relationship should reflect something even closer, a brother will be their to battle along side you, to fiercely defend you, and to cry real tears when you are crying. A brother is meant to be with you in times of adversity, holding you up if need be. I have brothers like this. I would love to name them all but this blog post would go on forever if I did. You know a brother is legit when he will take a blow meant for you, when he refuses to let others speak negatively about you, and when your fight is always his fight. That’s a brother.
Lets build a new culture in the church. Lets see to it that a new culture is created in our apostolic/prophetic communities. Let’s drop competition, back biting and in-fighting. I have seen times where a new prophetic minister came into a church and all the current prophetic ministries became nervous, as though they would lose “their place.” The danger is when feelings like this turn into actions, and people begin to stir up suspicion about another so they can protect their territory. How ungodly can we be.
It’s time to build again. We are brothers and sisters, meant to be there one for another in times of adversity. Meant to weep with those that weep and rejoice with those who rejoice. Let this change happen in your own heart today.
Father, thank you for my brothers. Thank you for people who have stood with me through thick and thin. Thank you for a love that is stronger than anything the world will know. In Jesus name ~ Amen.
