Are you crying out for the fire of God? For those of us desiring more of His Presence, we cry out for His all consuming fire. We love to tangibly feel His touch and His power wash over us in services and in our private time with Him. I know what that feels like to have His fire burn on the inside of you. It is overwhelming, and it is life changing. At least it should be. Yet I am convinced that we, myself included, do not comprehend the fullness and the cost of inviting the fire of God upon our lives.

As I glanced around the room this past Sunday morning, I saw bodies prostrate in the altar, and I heard the cries and the worship of those pressing into the Lord. The service had taken a different course as the Holy Spirit manifested in our midst through us. I remained kneeling on the floor, pouring out my adoration to God, and grateful to be in such a place where He is permitted to have His way. This is what happens when the Lion is unleashed from within His people. This is what happens when lion tamers are abandoned.

Have you ever stepped into your God ordained assignment only to be opposed by a familiar enemy, an enemy you thought was conquered? I can testify to this very thing in my own life, and I am sure many of you can as well. I was standing in a corporate gathering recently when the Lord reminded me of the account at Baal Perazim in 2 Samuel 5. For those of you who have transitioned into your God ordained assignment, be encouraged in the face of opposition, and understand that the name of your battlefield reflects your relationship with the Lord. Continue reading Baal-Perazim- The Name Of Your Battlefield Matters!
“You are not alone in the metamorphosis.” I want to share a word with those of you who are going through the process of transformation unto the Lord. I heard the word, metamorphosis in my spirit a few weeks ago, and I have been meditating on what God wanted to share, as He whispered this word into my spirit.
Metamorphosis is defined as “a change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one“. We often think of the amazing transformation of the caterpillar becoming a butterfly. The caterpillar is appreciated for its growth in its season while the butterfly is envied and admired for its beauty. But there is more than meets the eye with the caterpillar and the butterfly. Continue reading Metamorphosis Of The Lord’s Beloved
She was large and lurking in the corner of a basement. I knew what type of spider it was the moment I saw the red hourglass on her abdomen. I went from seeing this vision to seeing cobwebs in the front of residences I did not recognize.
Boldness began to rise up on the inside of me as I cursed the black widow, commanding her to die. I then found myself declaring the demise of her egg sac, prophesying destruction to every curse and every attack attempting to be birthed against the Kingdom of God. Continue reading A Prophetic Vision Of Jezebel’s Pet: The Black Widow Spider
As I lay on the floor worshiping the Lord a few nights ago during a corporate gathering, I heard a song rise up in my Spirit about lingering in His Presence. I heard the Lord say to me, “I am looking for the lingerers. I am looking for those unconcerned with inconvenience.”
Our pastor ministered that night with a message orchestrated by the Holy Spirit about the woman with the alabaster jar, and the Lord began to speak to me later about what it means to carry the anointing. I want to share with you the heart of the Father for the lingerers and the fragranced ones. It is a call to intimacy and wild pursuit for the Lover of our souls. It is a call to abandon our agenda for His agenda.

When you think about slaying giants, who is the first person that comes to your mind? Chances are, David has been placed on your giant slaying pedestal. His encounter with Goliath is famous, and it stirs our hearts to read about a young boy taking down this Philistine bully with a slingshot and the anointing of God.
When we read this story, we see that God can anoint the unlikeliest of people to silence the enemy. However, another giant slayer, Caleb, paved the way for David hundreds of years before, and this same anointing is important for us today as a new generation of spiritual giant slayers is birthed from those who have pioneered the way for slaying the adversary. This message is vital for ministry as well as our personal lives. Continue reading Generational Giant Slayers: The Caleb Anointing And A Davidic Generation
A few days ago, I woke up thinking about Isaiah 49:2,
“He made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me a polished arrow; in his quiver he hid me away,
and I could sense a stirring taking place over the prophetic scribes in this hour. There is so much that God wants to release through His scribes, and He is preparing His ready writers to go forth as arrows in the Spirit. He is desiring to fashion us as mighty weapons in His Kingdom while holding us close in the secret place so that we hear His voice and release His words and His heart.

“Who in their right mind walks a mile out into a river, not knowing how wide the river runs, or how deep it goes? It is the same as walking into the ocean”, my husband exclaimed. I had found myself in the depths of Ezekiel 47 a week ago, wondering about the distance he traveled out into the river from the temple, and I asked my husband to help me figure it out.
It is easy to lose the detail when looking at a passage like this, and for lack of a better term, skim the surface of what is really taking place. Apart from God, we are pretty shallow people. The waters of ourselves are safe, comfortable and easily tainted, but when we tap into the waters of God, they are unnerving, adventurous and pure in every ripple, wave and depth.
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege to be a guest speaker on a prayer conference call. While preparing to minister, I heard the Lord speak to me about the roar of intercession being released within our nation. Since that time, I have heard in my spirit the low rumble of a roar as it revs up to release a crescendo of thunder, shaking the heavenlies and the demonic powers wreaking havoc in our land. I am releasing this word to encourage the intercessors in our nation and the nations of the earth, and I want you to understand the power of your intercession and your position in this hour.
