HOME OF THE PLATINUM EAGLES(PE4L$)!
"The keys have to be released!" says the Lord. "The keys have to be released!"I'm seeing a key right know. I'm seeing a treasure chest, and I'm seeing the key going into the chest. It's an ancient key, and in the round part of the key there is actually an old cobweb because it's been sitting so long waiting for somebody to pick it up.A Presence is turning the key of the locked treasure chest, and He is opening the mysteries of Heaven, and He is opening up the Spirit of Revelation! Through this He is going to remove the spirit of divination (the art, practice, or gift of discerning or discovering future events or unknown things as though by supernatural powers, aka "false prophecy") within the Church. Divine revelation (an insight or foresight purportedly revealed by a deity; revelation given by God or His prophets to spiritually gifted persons) will remove divination!What I Saw in the Treasure ChestInside the treasure box I see a book. I see a book with many pages, and I see them beginning to turn. I see the pages of the book beginning to turn. I hear a voice resounding through the atmosphere, "It's the time, it's the time, and it's the time..." I see the book of Zacharias (Old Testament book telling the prophecies of Zechariah, which are concerned mainly with the renewal of Israel after the Babylonian captivity). Yes, revival is coming! I see the spirit of Elijah (people raised from the dead, and many will outrun the armies of the enemy of our God).I see an ornament sitting next to the book, a gold ornament like you would hang on a Christmas tree with a hook, and I just saw the key hit it and break it, and it became a million particles of gold; and it's now filling the book.I hear again a voice resounding in the atmosphere, "In the book (Holy Writ) you will find your treasure, you will find your destiny." I see the book of Hosea! The Book of Hosea can be divided into two parts: (1) Hosea 1:1–3:5 is a description of an adulterous wife and a faithful husband,…Continue
Today’s TruthShe selects wool and flax and works with eager hands. She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls. She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy (Proverbs 31:13-15, 20, NIV).Friend to FriendFamily is important to God. He created it before He created the church and, as with each of His creations, He made a plan for it to succeed. At the heart of that plan is love. To be part of a family is to be loved. Yesterday, we saw that the first step to loving our family is to build trust. The second step is to serve our family with joy. We are told by many to serve ourselves - not others. The Proverbs 31 woman had every opportunity to live a life of leisure.She had a prominent husband.She had a lot of influence.She was visible and active in the community.She was in charge of charity events.But she got up while it was still dark to make breakfast for her family and for those who served her. Proverbs 31:13 tells us she worked with “eager” hands. The literal meaning of “eager” is “in delight or in chosen joy.” In other words, she chose to serve with joy, which means we can choose to serve our family with joy as well. Jesus teaches the truth that service is a natural result of love.Galatians 5:13 “For, dear brothers, you have been given freedom: not freedom to do wrong, but freedom to love and serve each other.”Yet, many of us find it easier to serve everyone in love except our family. When my husband, Dan, was a youth pastor, we saw a variety of family dynamics. At one church, a young man came to us in tears. I will never forget his words, “My parents are getting a divorce because mom has time for everyone in the world except my dad and me!” Service to those we love and call family should not be a burden. In fact, an attitude of service is contagious. The best way to teach your family to serve is to serve them.From childhood, making the bed was one of my kids’ daily chores. I told them…Continue
Kathi Pelton:Our Refuge, Shelter and ConfidenceBe merciful and gracious to me, O God, be merciful and gracious to me, for my soul takes refuge and finds shelter and confidence in You; yes, in the shadow of Your wings will I take refuge and be confident until calamities and destructive storms are passed.—Psalm 57:1Take Refuge"...in the shadow of Your wings will I take refuge..."According to the dictionary, the word refuge means to find shelter or protection from danger; a place of safety, protection and shelter; and to receive aid, relief or escape.There are probably few people more aware of the need for refuge than the people from the regions of Japan where the earthquake and tsunami hit. They understand what it is like to be left without shelter. But even when the storms of life destroy earthly shelters, there is a Shelter that is unshakable and unmovable that is only found in Christ Jesus.Although I have never faced the level of devastation that the people of Japan are facing, I do understand what it is like to need refuge. Our family has been displaced by fire twice: once in 2003 due to a wildfire that swept through our city, destroying over 240 homes, and again in 2007 when an electrical fire destroyed our home. During times like these you become very aware of your need for a refuge and shelter that cannot be destroyed.We have not been promised that calamities will not come our way, but we have been promised that when the storms come we can be confident that Jesus will be our refuge and shelter. In the fire of 2007, our family lost a great deal of possessions due to fire, water and smoke damage. The first night I felt completely overwhelmed. Our kids clothes were destroyed, our basic needs were gone and all of our precious memories had burned (wedding photos, family photos, baby books, and the precious mementos that we treasured). That night I cried out to the Lord for His help and refuge.Over the next few days God raised up different people to be His hands and…Continue
raw Near to God - He Can Be Found in Very Ordinary PlacesDraw near to God and He will draw near to you... James 4:8aI was recently asked by someone who had been walking with the Lord almost all their life, "How does one draw near to God?" That's a great question. I had to stop for a moment to think about it. After all, I know what I think it means and what I have been taught by others, but...what does Scripture say about drawing near to the Lord? Let's take a look together and see what treasure the Lord has hidden in His Word for us to discover.The Greek word used in James to mean "draw near" is eggizo (pronounced eng-id'-zo; Strong's #1448). Eggizo means to bring near, to join one thing to another, to draw or come near to, to approach. The most common Hebrew counterpart is karav (Strong's #7126; pronounced ka-rav). Note that karav is spelled with the following three Hebrew letters: koof, resh, beit.The Hebrew word, karav, is similar to the Greek word, yet it has some sweet nuances that are lost in the translation. Karav is best expressed as being in or coming into a near and intimate proximity of an object (which, in this case, is God). It speaks of nearness in many ways. It speaks of nearness of proximity and space (see Genesis 19:20), nearness of time (see Deuteronomy 32:35), it even defines the nearness of an intimate encounter (see Isaiah 8:3).God Can Be Found in Very Ordinary PlacesKarav also speaks of the steps a man (or woman) performs in presenting themselves to God. For example, Moses was instructed not to draw near (karav) until he took off his sandals in Exodus 3:5: "Then He said, "Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground."This passage reveals a lot. First and foremost, drawing near to a Holy God is not a common or casual thing. Though the ground Moses stood on was common and just a spot in the wilderness that Moses had probably walked on a number of times, this time something was…Continue
Catherine Brown:"Awake! Awake! Now is the Time of My Outpouring"This book "To Israel With Love" is the culmination of twelve+ years of prophetic outpouring I have received in prayer regarding Israel. It seems fitting that the foreword would itself be a prophetic exhortation. As with all prophetic utterances, I exhort you to test and apply the revelation as the Spirit leads. I hope that as you read these revelations you will make time to pray for Israel and that you will be blessed and challenged afresh to love the people of Israel with the heart of our Heavenly Father.In His great love,Catherine"Awake, Awake!" A Global OutpouringIn a recent vision I saw the Lord rising out of the nations, and from Him rivers of life-giving water were being poured out on the whole earth to the north, south, east and west. Alongside of this powerful outpouring, I witnessed four mighty angels blowing golden trumpets at the four corners of the earth. Accompanying the revelation I heard the following proclamation: "Awake! Awake! Now is the time of My outpouring. Now is the time of My visitation in all the Earth."The Lord is calling out to the whole Earth and pouring out a fresh global anointing of His presence from Heaven, which is for all peoples and all tribes and all cultures at this time. The outpouring speaks of the blessed Holy Spirit given unto the Church as Helper, Comforter and Teacher (to name but a few of the wonderful ways in which God blesses His children by His Spirit).Anointed with Purpose – Global HarvestJesus promised that streams of life-giving water would flow in every Believer, and by that He referred to the giving of the Holy Spirit.On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud, voice, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." By this He meant the Spirit, Whom those who believed in Him were later to receive. Up to that the…Continue
Women in Leadership - Let the Women Speak!Blessings to each of you in Christ Jesus! Recently I had the honor of ministering at the 14th Annual Women on the Frontlines Extreme Conference in Phoenix, AZ with Patricia King, Gwen Shaw, Heidi Baker, Beth Alves, Sharon Stone, Stacey Campbell and so many others. I gave a strategic word "Let the Women Speak!" It was a profound time! It is such an honor that the burden of the Lord that was laid upon Michal Ann and I continues to this day.(Below are some of the notes James used to speak from this conference on Let the Women Speak that were adapted from the Prophetic Maturation Study Guide which he and Michal Ann prepared many years ago. The truths are timeless and the message is even more relevant today as in the past!)Introductory GuidelinesThe Concern for Biblical Order – Primary Verse:1 Corinthians 11:5 (AMP) And any woman who [publicly] prays or prophesies (teaches, refutes, reproves, admonishes, or comforts) when she is bareheaded dishonors her head...1. The first priority for men and women both is a proper relationship to God.2. The second priority for men and women both is a proper relationship to those in authority, including those in the Church.Scriptural Liberty for Men and Women - Primary Verses:Acts 2:17-18 ...I will pour out of My Spirit upon all mankind, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy...on My maidservants in those days I will pour out of My Spirit, and they shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels and predicting future events pertaining especially to God's Kingdom].I Corinthians 14:39-40 So...my brethren, earnestly desire and set your hearts on prophesying (on being inspired to preach and teach and to interpret God's will and purpose)...1. The goal is not to make the exception the rule, but to produce liberty and equality where there is no restriction enforced.2. A thought to ponder: What General of an army would only use one-half of his forces?3. Statistics reveal that 60% of all…Continue
I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, "I am looking for a hungry heart. A heart that will come and sit at My feet. A heart that will come and partake of the banquet that I will spread before that heart. That heart is a heart I am looking to own. That heart is a heart I am wanting to call My very own. For I am saying I want to take your heart and meld it into My heart to where the pain, the fears, the doubts, the unbelief will melt and dissolve away, because greater are you because you have found yourself in Me."Have I not said in My Word, 'Greater is He within you than he that is in the world?' I say unto you he (satan) may be in this world, but he is not among you in greatness. You are to take the devil and put him where he belongs: under your feet. He has become a distraction to you. As he has become a distraction to you, you retract My goodness and My love. You begin to believe the accusations that he would speak of Me. I am a God of goodness. I am a God of truth. I am a God of justice, but I am also a God of order."You will Also Come to Realize How Great You Are in Me""I am going to bring My own into position to where they will know that when they are inside Me, they are greater than anything the world or anything else that can be cast upon them... for it must first come through Me. I am putting a net over your hearts where your hearts will be so captivated. Pieces of your heart which have been robbed and stolen – I am calling and commanding them to come back to make your hearts whole – to where you can feel the pulse of Heaven; to where you can come to understand and grasp the depth of My love; to where you can come to exercise My love in a world that is starving and alone."For I will say the hour of isolation is being broken off of this nation. You will see where others, who have locked themselves away for years, literally for years because of bruises and pains received in and out of My Body, are going to start to come forth into the flood of the streets of…Continue
Paulette Reed:"I Call You Aligned and Ready for Action"I sense the Body is to move out of conference mode and into GO mode. "Troops" will come together to be trained and equipped in intense boot camps and sent out to intense battlefields, with intense passion for Christ. It's time for the King's mighty men and women of valor to ARISE and GO arm-in-arm.Listen carefully in March for marching orders. For HE is the door of the sheep (John 10:7) and we must have our ears nailed to the door so our hearing is filled with HIS voice. Don't miss your ordained appointments for commissioning.Lions and Lionesses Align!The following word was prophesied at 4 Corners Healing & Conference Center in Pinehurst, TX on February 23, 2011:The Lord would say, "Align, align, align. I've given you time to prepare and now I am calling the troops to action. I have given you My joy, which is your strength. I've given you My only begotten Son. I've given you the completed work of the Cross. I have given you time which I created – now I want yours. Time, time, time. Say, 'Yes, Lord!' There is no more, 'No, I can't.' It's time to say, 'Yes, I can. Yes, I can!' It's time to believe, 'I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me.'"Some of you are being stretched like never before. For this is what you asked for… this is what you prayed. 'Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge (stretch) my territory.' So, don't say no, say yes. The joy of the Lord is your strength. Lose your joy – lose your strength."I will bless you, indeed. Two thousand eleven is a year of blessings for those who have aligned. Blessings, blessings, blessings. My blessing, My joy, My strength for My covenant people."Arise, army of God. Can you feel Me pushing you? Can you hear your marching orders? Listen and roar, for the scrolls will be opened by the Lion of Judah."Listen! Listen to the roar of His voice, to the rumbling that comes from His mouth. He unleashes His lightning beneath the whole Heaven and sends it to…Continue
Kathi Pelton:Love will Always be God's Standard"I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love."—Mother TheresaA friend recently sent this quote to me and it encouraged me to love beyond the measure that I have been.Relationships can be the most wonderful blessings in our lives, while at the same time they can be the hardest challenges that we will ever face. Why? It is because we are all people whose human nature has been affected by sin. Although we were created in the image of Christ, we daily have the limitations of dealing with our fallen nature that still causes us to stumble in the areas of love. Since love is the key element in all relationships, our stumbling in this area can bring great pain to others as well as ourselves. The ability to love is both our greatest gift as well as our greatest area of shortcoming.Don't Let Your Love Become OffendedWe have all been hurt when we were not loved well. We all have also hurt others when we did not love well. I cannot think of too many times in my life when I was having relational conflict that it was all one-sided. Usually I find that both parties have stumbled in the area of pure love and both have experienced pain. If you experience pain in a relationship, it is very important to quickly share your heart with that person so that they can either have the chance to apologize, or in turn explain how you may have misunderstood their words or actions (intentions). If you do not, pain can quickly become offense, which can turn into anger.Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.—Leviticus 19:18Do not "bear a grudge" because it will begin to create a "filter" of offense that you view that person through from that point onward. If you continue in your offense (grudge) you will begin to view even the most pure and innocent things as defiled. What began as a possible misunderstanding, or…Continue
HOMEMAKER)HOMEMAKING -1- Homemaking is the highest calling for a woman there is. It requires for us to be many different tings. 1. Be a wife 9. Be an educator 2. Be a mother 10. Be a storyteller 3. Be a friend 11. Be an actress 4. Be a cook 12. Be a psychologist 5. Be a seamstr...ess 13. Be a sportsman 6. Be artistic 14. Be a referee 7. Be a bookkeeper 15. Be a nurse 8. Be a decorator 16. Be spiritual Women say, “I’m bored”, or I’m not productive, or “I’m not using my talents”. When we feel like that, we need to take another look at the challenge we have been given by the Lord. You don’t need to force yourself into a particular mold that you don’t fit into, as you will be able to do certain things better than others, because we are all made differently. But we can all do a pretty good job of homemaking, if we will just try! The home is a physical place where your husband can come home and kick off his shoes and relax. It is not a showplace. It is a place where the kids can bring their friends, have a place to play, feel secure and experience the warmth of your love. It is a place where a particular atmosphere is created. For instance, how does your husband leave home in the morning? Is he downcast, burdened or does he leave smiling? How do the kids leave home in the morning? Are they happy, healthy, full, clean and groomed, prepared for tests, or are they sad, feel insecure because they just got scolded (probably deservingly) but it just didn’t get quite resolved before they left home? Our face is a keynote to the day for your family. The home is a place that brings happiness, love, joy, peace, comfort and other fruits, so that the work of God can be carried out. It is a place where we all DEVELOP, our husbands, our children and ourselves; in order to become mature Christians who can bring more glory to God. If we all have our acts together in the home, we can be better witnesses for the glory of God outside the home, and also have something to share that has been…Continue
