I cannot get away from the altar. Over a month ago, I released a word about returning to the relevance of the altar. I was reminded of this word yet again this past Sunday during corporate worship. It was in this time that a burden of prayer and intercession came upon those in attendance. As people came to the altar to pray and intercede, the Lord led me to 1 Chronicles 21, and He showed me some things I want to share with you. I believe that not only is the altar becoming relevant once again, but I believe the intercessors are understanding what it means to become the altar upon which prayers and intercession are released before the Presence of God.

As I stood with my arms stretched high above my head in surrender one morning, I heard the Holy Spirit say to me, “Erect the lightning rods.” It was an unusual thing to hear, and I saw an internal picture of individuals standing with their arms raised in surrender to the Lord. I saw people positioned as spiritual lightning rods, people ready to receive the lightnings of heaven that usher in glory and the strikes of the enemy that would attempt to bring harm. You will see what I mean as you read on.

I love talking to Abba, and I love spending time with Jesus. His Presence is priceless. Since I came to know Christ, I have had some wonderful talks with the Father, and I have had some gut wrenching moments of correction. When we talk, it is a dialogue. I am not speaking to the air or to an imaginary friend, but I am conversing with I AM. He has a way of melting my heart like wax with one word.
Driving home a few days ago, I was talking to God and thanking Him for connecting me to people in my life. This year has been a whirlwind for me. Over a year ago, I stepped out in faith, leaving my medical profession behind and coming after Jesus. I felt like one of the disciples as Jesus walked by and said, “Follow Me”. It always seemed odd to me that fishermen, tax collectors and a doctor would drop everything at the invitation of a man they did not even know as He walked by them. It made no sense to me until it happened to me, but I recognized the deep calling as they did, and I laid it all down to come after Him. I had no idea what awaited except that I was to write and to minister on another level. It was a leap of faith onto a runner’s path with the wind of His Spirit propelling me onward toward the high call in Christ Jesus.

As a young Christian, I remember driving by establishments featuring the words, “psychics” and “tarot cards” in glowing neon in windows and storefronts, and I remember, for lack of a better word, feeling agitated at the sight of these places. I was not agitated with the individuals operating in this realm so much as I was the very existence of this perversion of the prophetic. Looking back, I understand that my agitation was in large part a reaction to this counterfeit of the prophetic ministry, and it was tied to my calling as a prophetic voice.

Do you remember the first time you answered an altar call? I do. I was twenty-one years old, and I answered the call to salvation. I was a broken young woman looking for answers to my pain and emptiness. I knew nothing about altar calls or the significance of my response to this invitation. I simply understood in that defining moment that I wanted to know Jesus Christ, and I wanted life as I knew it to change. Looking back, I now understand that I was answering the call to die so that I could truly live hidden in Him.

No one is immune to spiritual warfare. It does not matter how many years you have been in ministry, or how long you have known Jesus Christ. As long as there is breath in your body, you have an adversary. Now, I am not saying this to exalt the devil. He can never be equal to God. I am saying this so we are not ignorant of the enemy’s devices (2 Corinthians 2:11). I want to share something with you that the Lord shared with me a few days ago as I faced some warfare.

It is not uncommon for the Holy Spirit to speak to me and to share things with me that are on the Father’s heart. It is unusual, however, to hear something triggered by a random memory of a movie seen years ago. While in prayer recently, I had a fleeting thought about a scene in a western I had seen years ago. It was a pivotal point in the movie, and the statement struck fear into the heart of the villain. But then I heard the Lord reword the statement. He said, “Tell the devil that you are coming, and heaven is coming with you.”

Have you ever wondered what the word Halloween means? I am not speaking about the history of the holiday our culture celebrates, but rather the simple meaning of this word associated with October 31st. The word Halloween when spoken in the Christian community stirs up visions lacking any semblance of God’s goodness or light. The darkness is prevalent this time of year, but why is that? Why have we relinquished this day to another kingdom?

As a prophetic voice, I have been burdened with the urgency to pray and to intercede in this hour. The Lord has led me to pray for specific areas and people and to declare His heart on the matters at hand. A few weeks ago, I had an intense dream within a dream, and shortly after this, I heard the words double down in my spirit. It encouraged me to stand firm in my assigned areas of prayer. I want to empower the prayer warriors, intercessors and prophetic voices in this hour to double down in prayer and warfare.

Recently while attending a conference, I shared with a friend of mine a word I had heard in my spirit a few days prior to this event. As a prophetic voice, releasing words stamped with the Lord’s name is not something I take lightly. I like to talk with a few other seasoned prophetic people so that the word can be judged. I had heard the word backdraft in a time of prayer. My friend and I discussed this word and its meaning, and we talked about a motion picture bearing this same name and how the backdraft related to the body of Christ. I had no way of knowing that a few hours later, a guest speaker whom I did not know would mention this very term as well as the content of our conversation which he did not hear to those attending the conference. The Holy Spirit likes to confirm to us when we are hearing His voice.
