September has begun and the days are hurtling towards Rosh Hashanah on the 13th.Personally I am experiencing pressure in the Spirit unlike anything I have felt before and I have sensed an urgency to finish sending out the transcripts of the podcasts I have done in recent weeks before we step over into a new chapter in God's calendar, Are you ready to come away with Him? Have you loosed yourself from the things which bind you to Egypt and the world system as far as is possible? Dense darkness, darkness that can be felt is already falling over portions of the globe and yet in the houses of those set apart by the blood of the Lamb, there is light and revelation and increasing clarity concerning their focus and priority. Remember part of the transition bridge is reorientation - a focus on what lies ahead and a forgetting of what lies behind.
The Lamb is to be our sole delight and our eyes must be fixed upon Him as we walk over the threshold into a new season. Let the systems of this world crumble and fall. His Church is preparing to arise, clothed with the glory of the Lord. Yet some are struggling to disentangle themselves emotionally from the place they have been in for so many years. Please share this transcript with any you know who are hesitating and experiencing fear at leaving the familiar, even the familiarity of the things of this world.
Set Apart Within – Transcript of Podcast
I’m going to continue discussing the 10 plagues of Egypt, which were like birth pangs thrusting God’s people out of Egypt, out of the worship of idols and into a marriage relationship with Himself at Mount Sinai. I’ve done the first 3 plagues and I now want to go on to discuss the 4th plague, which was the plague of gadflies or mosquitoes
I said in my last message that this was the plague where there was a dividing line put between the Egyptians and God’s people. In Exodus 8:21, God says: ‘“If you will not let My people go, I will send swarms of gadflies or mosquitoes upon your servants, your people and into your houses and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms and also on the ground on which they stand, but on that day I will sever and set apart the land of Goshen in which My people dwell, that no swarms may be there, so that you may know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth and I will put a division and a sign of deliverance between My people and your people. By tomorrow this sign will be in evidence’ and the Lord did so and there came oppressive swarms into the house of Pharaoh and his servants and in all the land of Egypt the land was corrupted and ruined by reason of the great invasion”..
Keep in mind that God said He would put a separation between the Egyptians and those of His people who are dwelling in Goshen. Remember Goshen means ‘drawing near’, so it speaks of a place of intimacy; the dwelling in the secret place with the Lord like Psalm 91 speaks of. That word for swarms caught my eye and that word means ‘to traffic, to braid and to mingle yourselves’. To braid means to take 3 strands and to plait them and if you remember, it says in Ecclesiastes 4:12 that “a threefold cord is not easily broken. A threefold cord is a picture of a marriage relationship of a husband, a wife and the Lord; a braid tightly woven together, but when there is a braiding and an intermixing with the world, the world values and the world system, then it’s an unholy marriage and the Supreme Court decision on Homosexual marriage brings this topic into the spotlight.
The other word that ‘swarms’ means is ‘to traffic’ and to ‘traffic’ means: ‘to barter or give as security’. I had a look where else in the Word this word ‘traffic, braid or intermix’ was used and I found it in Ezra 9:1 where it says: “Afterwards the officials came to me and said, ‘The Israelites and priests have not separated themselves from the people of the land, but have committed the abominations of the Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Jebusites, Ammonites, Moabites, Egyptians and Amorites, for they have taken as wives some of their daughters for themselves and for their sons so that the holy offspring have mixed themselves with the people of the lands’” and in Psalm 106:35 it uses the same word. It says: “they mingled themselves with the idolatrous nations and learned their ways and their works and served their idols which were a snare to them”. Now the important thing here, is when God calls us to ‘come out of Babylon’ or to come out of the world and its ways, you would have to leave the globe completely to come out of it, but what He’s talking about, is the world or Babylon not being within His Church.
The Israelites and the Priests were living in the presence of the Canaanites, the Jebusites, the Moabites, the Amorites, but they were not separating themselves and their ways and their mode of living from that of the unsaved people around them and they mixed themselves with them. You know the Word says: “Do not yoke yourselves together with unbelievers, for what fellowship can light have with darkness and what has a Believer have in common with an unbeliever?” and it’s really speaking of a marriage and of not mixing yourselves in that way with the peoples of the land. As the people of God, when we marry or braid ourselves or intermingle ourselves with that which is ungodly within the Church, that makes God angry, because the world is not supposed to be in the Church. We are meant to be in the world, but not of the world and so it’s interesting that God sends swarms to fill the houses of those who are called Egyptians, who were labelled as being of the world, but those that were in Goshen had no swarms in their houses.
Are you in the world and not of the world, or are you trafficking, trading and bartering? To barter means: ‘to trade for security or provision of some kind’ and Babylon was called ‘the Land of Trade’. In Ezekiel 17:4 it says: ‘He broke off the top most of the twigs and carried it into a Land of Trade and set it in a City of Merchants’. So, there’s a whole sense of buying and selling and bartering. There’s a buying and selling of one’s soul and allegiance in return for safety and provision. So the plague of mosquitoes is related to mixture, mingling with Babylon. When we see laws being passed in the world, we shouldn’t be surprised, because they are not believers. They live the way they want to live and we don’t have a say over that, but when we as the Church are starting to look like what’s going on in the world, that’s what God’s referring to. When He says, “Come out of Babylon”, He means to get Babylon out of us in a spiritual sense, so that we don’t share with her plagues, because if you’ve got Babylon in you, if your house is actually labelled as a house of the Egyptians, because the world is found within you and the ways of the world and the love of the world is found within you, then the swarms will attack you.
It says in Exodus, ‘the land was ruined and corrupted by reason of the great invasion’. It makes me think of those locusts which John saw, that were released from the pit or the Abyss. A great invasion corrupted and ruined the land. As I was pondering on all these things, I wanted to understand exactly what God was trying to say to me for this present day application and I had a look at what Pharaoh was offering the people of God when Moses said: “Let my people go!” and in Exodus 8, it says that after the 3rd plague, Pharaoh said to Moses that the people of God could sacrifice to their God, but within Egypt, in the sight of the Egyptians. In Exodus 8:26 it says: “And Moses said: ‘It is not suitable or right to do that, for the animals the Egyptians hold sacred and will not permit to be slain, are those we are accustomed to sacrifice to the Lord our God. If we did this before their eyes would they not stone us? We will go on a 3 day journey into the Wilderness and sacrifice to the Lord our God as He will command us’”. Now that 3 day journey is an allusion to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. What Moses was essentially saying, in a type and a shadow, was that the people of God wanted to put the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, a distance of the cross and all that was accomplished by it, between the world and it’s ways and the people of God and their ways. God does require us to put to death the deeds of darkness and the flesh and we must put that 3 days distance between the people of God and the Egyptians and their Idols (or the world and the things they idolise and hold valuable and the things they worship). Moses’ request was for freedom of religion, to put to death that which the Egyptians worshiped.
We see the same today occurring in this arena with the Supreme Court judgement in America, but Pharaoh’s heart will be hardened. The people of God will not be given permission to worship and sacrifice to their God in the sight of the Egyptians openly, chiefly because the enemy doesn’t want the people of God to be worshiping. He doesn’t want the people of God to have freedom of religion and so we can’t expect that, but within our hearts there must be a 3 day distance between the Egyptians and their idols and ourselves as the people of God. The cross of Christ must be between us and a worldly ungodly lifestyle of any sort.
Do you remember when the angels came to Lot just before God judged Sodom and Gomorrah? The angels were in the town square and Lot went to them and said, “Come and spend the night with me” and they said, “O no, we’ll spend all night in the town square” and Lot pleaded with them and brought them into his house, because he knew it wasn’t safe in the square. He knew what went on and I want us to go and look at that passage with Lot again, because there’s some keys in there as to how to deal with the things that are happening in the earth in this day and especially in the western nations where we’re having to face these ungodly judgments that are being passed. You know, I really believe the Lord is using these things to stir up the heart of the Bride and to stir up and provoke the Church of Christ just to examine what they believe and what is truth and what isn’t truth, because there’s been a lot of passivity in the Church of Jesus Christ and the world has just crept into the Church. Judgement begins with the House of God. So, when we see these things being passed in the world, we need to look in the mirror at ourselves and see in what way uncleanness and perversity and a lack of alignment to the truth of the Word of God is present in our own hearts and in the Church of Jesus Christ.
So let’s look at Lot. In Genesis 19:1 it says: “It was evening when the two angels came to Sodom”. Do you remember I spoke to you about the evening watch which occurred just before the beginning of a new day (the day of the Lord) and darkness is about to fall? It was then that the angels or messengers came to Sodom in order to bring Lot out of that place, because he was righteous in God’s sight and God didn’t want him to suffer with the judgement that was coming on Sodom. It says: “Lot rose up to meet them and bowed to the ground”. These were the Messengers of Judgement, the messengers carrying the message warning of imminent judgment: “Come out of her that you may not share in her plagues! “ And Lot said to them ‘Turn aside into your servant’s house and spend the night there and bathe your feet. Then you can arise early and go on your way’. But they said, ‘No, we will spend the night in the square’” and I looked up that word for ‘square’ in the Hebrew. Do you know that it means ‘the broad place’? This was really a test for Lot, because the messengers were saying: we’re going to spend the coming night in the broad place, but Beloved, that’s not the place to spend the coming night. “Narrow is the way that leads to life and few find it”. The square outside, the open air, in the midst of the world and it’s ways, is not a safe place to spend the coming night that is coming upon the earth. ‘Broad is the way that leads to destruction’. You’ve got to choose the narrow way now. We’re in the evening watch and night is falling.
“And Lot urged and entreated them greatly and they yielded and they entered his house” and it says in Gen 19:3, he made them a dinner (or a banquet) and they had unleavened bread which he baked, which speaks of the leaven of sin not being present within Lot’s house and that’s a very important thing to note there. But before they went to sleep, the men of the city of Sodom came and hammered on the door and surrounded the house, both young and old and they called to Lot and they wanted the men to be brought out to them so that they could sodomise them and Lot went out of the door and shut the door after him. He kept the Angels in the house to keep them safe, but he went out to engage the men of Sodom.
In his house there was unleavened bread, but Lot went outside and he wanted to debate with these men and he said: “Don’t behave so wickedly” and he offered them his daughters and he was saying to them, “Don’t do anything to these men; they are under the protection of my roof. Behave like normal men and have sexual relations with women”. In a sense he was speaking about the homosexual agenda versus having sexual intimacy God’s way (although God’s way would have been within marriage), but he was entering into a debate with these men and that enraged them and they felt that he was judging them, because he was rebuking them concerning what they wanted to do and telling them that there was a right way to have sex and they said to him: ‘“This fellow came to live here temporarily. He is a sojourner and now he presumes to be our judge. Now we will deal worse with you than with them!” and they rushed and pressed violently against Lot and came close to breaking down the door”.
I want to say that I really believe there’s a warning from the Spirit of God in this passage, for Christians at this time concerning the judgments that have been passing in the world system: that now, as we go past the evening watch into the first watch of the night, it’s not the time to go out and engage with that unclean spirit and debate face to face concerning what is right and what is not right, because that spirit is going to attack you and press violently against you and want to do you great damage.
You know, we see this Christian couple who owns the bakery who refused to bake a wedding cake... it’s been huge news! They’ve encountered huge damages financially and now a gag order has been placed on them forbidding them to speak about what they believe. Now, in a sense, that’s almost like Lot debating with the men of Sodom saying, “This is not the right way to live”. It’s not time to debate. It’s not time to speak about what is right and wrong. Wicked men are behaving wickedly and the wicked will continue being more wicked, but let the righteous now be righteous. It’s time, just like it was time to put Noah in the ark and shut the door, it’s time for the people of God to come inside, come into the secret place and let God seal the door.
Those angels pulled Lot into the house and they sealed the door and struck the men outside with blindness so that they couldn’t find the door. Now eyes are organs that see. Blindness means that light has been removed, that there’s a hiddenness that’s come over Lot, that Lot has been veiled and hidden in the secret place, in a sense. Just as the Lord sealed the door after Noah, those angels struck the men who were at the door of the house with blindness and they couldn’t find the door to get in.
Remember that Jesus said: “I am the door”. Jesus also said He came to make those who can see, blind and those who are blind, to see and so these men who were harassing Lot and his visitors, claimed to see, claimed to have light, claimed to have revelation, claimed to know the truth and the right way. It wasn’t the time for Lot to go out and debate with them. It was time for him to be in that house and to be sealed and hidden and it is the door, it’s the door that comes between Lot and those men. Jesus, who is the Door, comes between Lot and the men of Sodom. Just like with Moses and the Egyptians, there was a 3 day’s journey that they wanted to put between the Egyptians and their idols and the people of God and the true God that they served. God’s messengers are being sent at this time to shut you in and to seal you and put a separation between you and what is unclean. That separation will not be able to be penetrated, but you have to put Jesus Christ and what He’s done on the cross through the death and resurrection of the Son of God between you and the outside world.
It’s time now for dealings within your own house, within your own heart, because that’s where you have to come out of Sodom. That’s where you have to come out of Babylon and be separate so that you don’t share in her plagues, because you have to get Sodom out of you, before you can leave Sodom and not share in her plagues. You have to get Babylon out of your own heart. It’s no good coming out of the world and going and sitting on a mountaintop, if within your own heart the ways of Babylon and the inter-mixture and the inter-braiding and the trafficking and the lack of adherence to the Word of God has taken place, because the coming judgement is a spiritual judgement. God judges the Church of God before He judges the world.
That is why there’s such an urgency for dealing with our own hearts, for repenting for the height from which we have fallen, for abandoning our first love, for having love affairs with the world as James speaks: Wash your soiled hands and become clean and repent and the Lord will receive us.
So, if we look at what occurred with Lot, the angels pull him into the house, they seal him in by striking the men with blindness and the men weary themselves, but they can’t find the door. They can’t find Jesus; they can’t find the way to come into the place of Goshen. They’re not finding that Door. They’re not going to find it, because they have been struck with blindness. In almost the same way as the Lord veiled the eyes of the Jews in order to graft the Gentiles in, Jesus came to make seeing men blind and to make blind men see and we’re living in those days, but we need to obey the messengers of God and we need to come apart and listen. Listen to what the Spirit of God is saying to us. Drink of the fountain of Living Water within our own hearts. Drink and allow the Holy Spirit to minister and cleanse our hearts, so that the uncleanness of Babylon/Sodom, whatever you want to call it, comes out of our hearts - every area where there is intermixing and braiding and trafficking within our own hearts.
You know, when they came to arrest Jesus, Jesus said: “He has nothing in Me” and I want to say to you: does Satan have anything in you? Because if he does, then that plague of mosquitoes, that swarm, that causes great corruption and devastation in the land, is going to fill your house too. You’ve got to understand that we have to be filled with light. We are children of the light and you know the angels said to Lot: “Have you got anyone else in this town, in this city, to bring out of this place? Do you have anybody else, for we are going to destroy Sodom, because the shriek against its people has grown great in front of the Lord and He has sent us to destroy it” and it says: “Lot went out again and he spoke to his sons-in-law, who were men of Sodom, who were to marry his daughters and said: ‘Get up. Get out of this place, for the Lord will spoil and destroy this city’, but his sons-in-law laughed at him”.
Now, in the first place, why had Lot betrothed his daughters to men of Sodom when God specifically said, “Do not mix yourselves with the heathen, with the unclean”. Do you remember in Ezra, that was the complaint - they have intermarried and intermixed themselves with the Canaanites, the Ammonites, the Whoeverites? Well, Lot had done the same thing to his poor daughters. He betrothed them to unclean men and then he was offering them to unclean men hammering on the door. Oh dear, not such wise decisions, but in Gen. 19:15 it says: “When morning came”, that’s the morning watch after 3 watches of darkness, from 6 o’clock at night until 3 o’clock the next day, “...’, while he hesitated, while he doubted... You know, delayed obedience is disobedience. Those angels, because of God’s mercy, seized him and his wife and two daughters, because the Lord was merciful to them ‘and they brought him forth and set him aside the city and left him there’.
You know that Lot means “veiled”. How interesting that is. In this night of darkness, after the harassment from the men of Sodom, in this day that begins at 6 pm, which I believe is the Day of the Lord beginning, there are first 3 watches of darkness when the angels that God has sent are reasoning and urging Lot to separate himself in every way possible from Sodom and its ways. In the morning watch, Lot is thrust out of Sodom. He is brought forth. In a sense it’s a birthing. The Word says, in the day when the Son of Man is revealed, will He find faith in the earth? That word ‘revealed’ is ‘apocalypto’ and it means ‘to take off the cover, to reveal’ and in a sense Lot, which means ‘veiled’, was brought forth or revealed outside of the city. He was revealed as one of God’s children. He was revealed as separate from Sodom. He was unveiled in a sense. Isn’t the whole of creation waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God? Now the ‘manifestation’ means the ‘revealing’ of the sons of God.
How are the sons of God going to be revealed and when are the sons of God going to be revealed? They’re going to be revealed on that morning watch of the Day of the Lord when there comes a permanent separation between them and Sodom. Firstly there’s a separation by the door being closed and sealed. In Noah’s case, it meant being shut in the ark, with the door sealed and the ark walked on the water, while all that was flesh was destroyed by the flood. In Lot’s case, separation entailed being pulled inside, by the door being shut, the men being struck with blindness and then in the morning watch completely leaving and coming out and being separate from Sodom as judgement fell.
Of course, Lot’s wife turned back and judgement hit her. When it says, she was turned into a pillar of salt it sounds quite picturesque, but in actual fact she was completely burnt up. There were just mineral salts left when the fire and brimstone fell on her, leaving a monument to depict those who put their hand to the plough and turn back.
Jesus came that those who see may be made blind. We find that in John 9:39. He says: “I came into this world for judgement as a separator in order that there may be separation between those who believe in Me and those who reject Me, to make the sightless see and to make those who see become blind”. What a startling statement that is. In John 10:2, we find this statement: “He who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. The watchman opens the door for this man and the sheep listen to his voice and heed it and he calls his own sheep by name and brings them out and when he has brought his own sheep outside, he walks on before them and they follow him, because they know his voice. ‘I am the Door. Anyone who enters in through Me will be saved. He will come in and he will go out and find pasture’”. So it says there that Jesus is the Door and the watchman opens the Door, the watchman opens the Door of Christ. It was the angels, the messengers of God who was sent, that opened the door and pulled Lot inside. He was hidden in Christ in the secret place during the 3 watches of darkness. And Jesus, when He was referring to the incident with Lot, said in Luke 17:28 “So also it is the same as it was in the days of Lot. People ate and drank, they bought, they sold (there we have the trafficking and the trading), they planted, they built, but on the very day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. That is the way it will be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed”. Did you hear that? That is the way it will be on the day when the Son of Man is ‘revealed’, brought into plain sight. How is the Son of Man going to be revealed? He’s going to be revealed within His people who are true Believers. He’s going to be manifested when the sons of God are manifested and they’re manifested in the morning watch.
Psalm 110 says: “Out of the womb of the morning, spring forth your young men, your sons who are as the dew”. Jesus warned, when He was speaking about that day when the Son of Man is revealed, in Luke 17: 31 He says: “On that day, let him who’s on the housetop with his belongings, not come down to carry them away and let him who is in the field not turn back”. He’s speaking about it being sudden and there being no time left and He says: “Remember Lot’s wife! Whoever tries to preserve his life will lose it” and a little bit later He goes on to say: “There will be two men in a bed. One will be taken and one will be left” and that word for ‘taken’ means, (in Greek, its ‘paralambano’) ‘to receive near, to associate with oneself, to receive’. It’s speaking about intimacy. So, those who are ‘taken’ are those who are taken into intimacy in Goshen, taken in, to be hidden in Christ in that day, hidden in the secret place of His presence.
There are 3½ watches of the night, before the light starts to dawn on a new day and there will be 3½ watches of darkness, during which there will be gross darkness upon the peoples. For the 1st watches of the night when it gets darker and darker, the people of God must be hidden and sealed within the house. It’s not a time to be outside debating and taking on the cause and standing up face to face and head to head with perversity and uncleanness and hoping to make a headway, because that spirit will destroy you. You are making yourself a target. Now is not the time to be standing up. Now is the time to be going inside, examining your own heart and letting there become a separation within yourself between light and darkness and putting a 3 day journey between you and the people of Egypt and their idols and the world and its ways. Put that 3 day journey of the death and resurrection of Christ between, because Jesus who is the Door, is the only door that will seal you and separate you from destruction in this day.
Do you remember when I told you about what happened just before the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD, that for 3½ years the Shekinah glory cloud of God abode on the Mount of Olives. It left the Temple and it went to abide on the Mount of Olives, which was outside the city and there was a voice from heaven urging people to repent and return to God and then it left. Now, in the same sense, there is a calling to the people of God to withdraw... (It’s a thing that happens within your heart). I’m not saying to you have nothing to do with unbelievers, not talking to those who are unsaved, who are in ungodly lifestyles, but I’m saying: now is not the time to enter into theological debates. You know, I just read yesterday that some man is suing a Bible Publisher, because of verses on homosexuality in the Bibles that he has printed. Now the Bible has been in existence for thousands of years. You cannot hold the Publisher responsible for those words. He is just publishing a Bible. The Word is the same from the beginning, it is truth and there’s ludicrous things going on in the legal courts and in the public discourses and in the open squares where there are debates and people on their soap boxes. It’s not time for Christians to be getting on their soap boxes now. It’s really not! You will be taken out by that unclean spirit! Its desire is to destroy you. You need to come inside and put the Door, who is Jesus, between you and what is unclean, as darkness falls and it’s time now to examine your own hearts, because judgement is coming on the Church of Jesus Christ first and we need to repent for our own unclean hearts.
You know when the Angels came to Sodom, Lot was sitting in the gate. That’s the place where the judges sit. Now he was probably sitting there and judging and looking upon what was going on in Sodom and thinking how unclean it was, but there was an appointment for Lot, an appointment of separation within his own house. He had to separate from his sons-in-law who were betrothed to his daughters and unbeknown to Lot, he was also going to be separated from the wife of his bosom, because she turned back. It’s time to allow the spirit of judgement and burning to work within our hearts, to work within our homes.
There’s unleavened bread in our homes. We’re eating of it, we’re eating of the unleavened bread which is Christ, within our homes, just as those Israelites ate the whole lamb with the blood upon the doorposts and the lintels of their houses while there was the judgement of the firstborn of Egypt outside; just like the Israelites had light in their houses when the plague of darkness came upon Egypt. There is a separation, but it’s a separation depending upon what’s in the heart, depending upon how right are we with the Word. Are we aligned to the Word? Has this two-edged sword which is the Word of the living God become our sword? Are we fully aligned or is there some hammering out that needs to happen there?
So I just wanted to release that warning, because I’m seeing a thing within the people of God that they’re feeling it’s now time to stand up on soap boxes and tackle this issue of gay marriage and I don’t believe it is. The world will continue doing what the world does, but the question is: will the Church continue doing what the world does? God’s showing us a mirror when these things happen in the world, because the state of a nation is directly linked to what the Church has been up to for the last decades. We have to cleanse our own soiled hands. Is the love of the world and its ways in us? Are we having adultery with the world? Have we left the Husband which we’re betrothed to or are we set apart as pure virgins for Christ?
That was Paul’s unction and urging with the Churches, that he wanted to present them as pure virgins to Christ. He was their custodian and in a sense almost as the Holy Spirit is for all of us, He wants to lead us into all truth and it’s really time now as darkness falls in the world and the wicked become more wicked, let the righteous be righteous still. Don’t waste your time in vain and foolish arguments. You’re not going to win an argument with the ungodly and with the unclean spirit and with the perverse, but you live differently, you live as a light and a city set on a hill, you live as a standard of righteousness and let your lives display the difference and leave the rest in God’s hands, because it’s time for our houses to be clean. It’s time for judgement to begin with the house of God. It’s time for the spirit of judgement and burning to work within our own houses. It’s not time now to stand in the law courts and fight with the ungodly.
Remember the plague of gadflies or mosquitoes, they come upon those who have inter-mixed and inter-braided themselves with the world and its ways. Let’s examine our own hearts. Let’s not point fingers when there are logs in our own eyes at this time. May the Lord bless this word and add to it truth as He ministers to you in the secret place, as you drink from the fountain of life and wash with the water of the Word, in the mikvah, in the pool, that is underneath your own living room floor as I spoke about last time.

Since my juicer burned out, I have been doing the baking soda / molasses protocol. I have quit using it today. I feel terrible since starting it. I'm afraid to continue with it.
I really need the carrot juice. With carrot juice throat growth was shrinking, lymph nodes shrinking, cough lessening and breathing was better, hoarseness nearly gone. Now all the symptoms are coming back big time.
If any of you feel led to help me with the purchase of a good juicer, I would certainly appreciate it. My old $49 juicer just wasn't made to juice as many carrots as I need to do.
God bless you all

God spoke to me the AM.. While sitting and waiting ...Then
later in the PM.
He manifested Himself, speaking through a revelatory realm
as I was reading the Holy Writ.
I was sensing His heart .. He was about to speak, I became
He spoke ...
"There is a New Day emerging in which I shall Ordain
Prophets and Apostles in an atmosphere of Revelatory
In this realm I will assign men and women, young and old to
brand new regions with a clarion call like that of the
Ancient Ones! The old wells are OPEN says The Lord.
I have seen many who are on the front-lines who are growing
I will remove them for a short rest and give them a brand
new vision for their future. And IT'S GOOD!
I am assigning Angelic realms of My heavenly Host to guide
and direct prophets who have been still in My presence.
My Spirit will guide them to areas and regions. When they
prophesy there will be an ease in it as being on the
front-lines has caused heartache.
"Allow Me to do this" says the Lord. I will give you
rest,but will not stop the call.
I say to you..NOW ...
The cave of the prophets has been opened!
Jezebel has been trying to alienate you to get you
discouraged and make you quit.
The purpose of that spirit was to confuse you, and to cause
hatred, jealousy and, strife to make you feel isolated and
FEAR NOT and, Be Still! says the Lord. I Am is with you. I
AM EXPOSING THAT SPIRIT" says the Lord. As Jezebel has
tried to silence you I have protected you.
Scripture references :
1st Kings 18 : 4 (and when Jezebel cut off the prophets of
the LORD, Obadiah took a hundred prophets and hid them by
fifties in a cave and fed them with bread and water.)
O yes to many of you Prophets I have had you reserved in a
cave. And now, I am opening that cave.
Listen to the sound of my voice it is calling out to you
now ... I declare "The Glory is coming to you NOW!"...
"As Moses saw the glory twice, you too will see even now:
The latter Glory is making its entrance.
I am showing you the prophets who have been isolated and
that YOU Are not alone ... Come out and Stand and see Me,
says the Lord.
1st King 19 :11 The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the
mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about
to pass by.”
Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and
shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not
in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but
the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 After the
earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire.
And after the fire came a gentle whisper. 13 When Elijah
heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out
and stood at the mouth of the cave.
Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here,
Elijah?” ( I heard instantly What are you doing Prophets
asks the Lord What are you doing ? )
14 He replied, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God
Almighty. The Israelite s have rejected your covenant, torn
down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the
sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to
kill me too.”
15 The Lord said to him, “Go back the way you came, and go
to the Desert of Damascus. When you get there, anoint
Hazael king over Aram. 16 Also, anoint Jehu son of Nimshi
king over Israel, and anoint Elisha son of Shaphat from
Abel Meholah to succeed you as prophet. 17 Jehu will put
to death any who escape the sword of Hazael, and Elisha
will put to death any who escape the sword of Jehu. 18
Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel—all whose knees have
not bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed
As I read this I heard this clearly :
"The Place I called you to, is the place I am calling you
from. The cave of isolation is OVER! I have not forgotten
you. It's time now. Arise Prophets and Apostles and move
the ancient walls of My presence to the People"
As I hid Moses in the cleft of the rock that he might see
My glory pass by, ( Exodus 33 : 22)
I have done the same with many of you prophets who have
been " Seemingly Cut Off".
NO, NO, NO! You have not been cut off you have been hidden
for such a time as this.
I am about to release you to regions, nations and new
spheres of influence. Great utterances and positions I do
have ahead of you! "
I have caved ( isolated) many of my prophets in America,
Canada, England, Switzerland, Africa, Haiti, Cuba,
Guatemala, Puerto Rico, Germany, Spain, West Africa,
Jordan, Iraq, Tanzania, and Israel.
Listen to me - Africa will come forth as a Prophetic
I have reserved in Africa a tribe of Jews who have been
pressing into me by the Spirit as KNOWING my Voice. They
will emerge from the cave( isolation) with a clarion call
The will carry a Godly repentance and sorrow for a nation
to be saved. Hear Them!
Dear budding prophet I have not forgotten you ... I have
shared with you my heart of grace and supplication. Your
prayers have been heard. Now go and prophesy out of My
relationship with you. For in this I will release many who
are in bondage.
Yes, in My presence I captivated you as if you were in
isolation Now you have developed an ear toward me. selah.
To the seasoned Prophet ...Remember the younger. How they
need you to assist them..For in your heart you have desired
to be my spokesman and prophecy to the nations. I tell you
this. YOUR voice has ignited new voices which will emerge
... Be thrilled in this for the latter will be greater than
the former...Even in Prophecy.. For this is a corner stone
in which I have established my house. ( Haggai 2:9 )
Yes you seasoned prophet I have need of you. Your position
will change into an Apostolic Prophetic/Teaching Realm/
Role of My Spirit for I am asking you to Prophecy to the
Teach them to Listen To Feel and To Emerge with Discernment
I need you seasoned prophets to Continue to Prophecy and Be
ONE. As I and my Father are One ( John 17 : 21).
A new thing :
I will assemble A conclave of the Apostolic / Prophetic
Councils in the near future In many regions of The United
states and In 4 specific international regions.
The United Kingdom.
This may seem odd, but. I assure you this is not .. For
there... the battles raging against my prophets have been
immense. It is THERE from the persecutions my Prophets Will
emerge strong and speaking as ones who have drawn nearer
to Me with complete passionate desires to assist those who
have no hope. Lack of
Hope deferred is making many sick at heart... Prophets
Listen to the Voice of The Spirit! There is HOPE!
Go now and release Me says the Lord
This is the word of Our Lord.

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:
I say to you, these are dangerous times. Therefore, I am calling you to a higher level of understanding. A higher level and ability of being able to see and hear and to know the direction that you are to walk in so that you can be one with Me. Stay under the shelter of My outspread wings so that I can protect you, lead you, and guide you. The travesty of this world need not touch you. Even though you will see it all around you, you will find yourself in a secure and very safe habitation in Me, says the Lord.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Look to Me for answers. Ask and receive; only believe. I am with you to give you wisdom and to direct your steps. I will establish you and strengthen you to proceed on the path that is before you, says the Lord. Do not be afraid.
1 Peter 5:10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
"Now hope does not disappoint..." Romans 5:5
Hope may seem like a simple word to us, but we must not allow the familiarity of our definition to rob the eternal potency of God's truth and power when it is applied in its full measure. Right now, I believe we have huge, collective reason to hope like never before. Half measures of hope are gone and our measure is being bound to His again.
It seems the enemy has been working overtime lately to create fear. You may have seen or felt it too. Social media and mainstream media are brimming with subjects that can cause our perspective to be far too fear focused while it tries to rob our hopeful future. You may even be experiencing a greater amount of anxiety, or areas of setback lately while the enemy's lies seek to add pounds of pressure and try to make you feel like hope would be deferred. BUT, as we know, fear is nothing more than a lie trying to lure us to agree with a false reality, seeking to keep us from being the reformers of hope we are created to be!
In fact, the amount of fear's lies that are being sprayed about tells us that it is the enemy who is actually quite afraid. He is afraid of the hope that is in you. We must not take on his fear, for it is his, not ours! He is afraid of Christ in you, the hope of glory!
"...I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. And the God of peace will crush satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen." Romans 16:19-20
Stamped By Hope!
Recently, I was walking through our house from one room to another when God did one of my favorite things; He gave me one of His seemingly random interruptions when, out of the blue, He says, "I have something for you." These always leave me eager when He greets me like that.
So, I stopped what I was doing just to stand in His presence and receive. First, He spoke some loving affirmations that really strengthened me. And next, He gave me a word. But it was simpler than I expected. I saw a big stamp of the word "HOPE" come down and it marked me with great intention.
Immediately I kept listening to understand what that hope was towards, or what else He was saying about such hope. But every time I looked and listened, I just kept seeing and hearing nothing but hope. At first, it felt incomplete. Where was the rest? But that's when it hit me, even now I sense His nodding agreement, He was showing me a word picture that there was indeed: "Nothing but hope."
Here I was wondering where the rest of the word was, and the Father was telling me, "Nothing but hope" as He stamped down and marked me with the word in a very revived sense. Since that moment, the word has been LOADED! Same word, BUT renewed power! What if we lived according to the expectation that there is nothing but hope? The very reformation we long for among culture would ooze out of us everywhere. Hope breathes through those who choose to be awakened!
Imagine with me, if you will, a big rubber stamp of hope from Heaven coming down and putting its imprint upon every day, every thought and every promise and purpose in your life and family. "Expect" according to that stamp and its imprint. Determine yourself to renew your mind and expect nothing but hope!
Align with Hope's Expectation
Hope does not disappoint! (see Romans 5:5). No matter what season you've been in or are coming out of, hope cannot be dictated to or under defined by that season. Hope is hope is hope. It's always the same and it does not disappoint. Rather, hope APPOINTS the truth and love of God into its rightful place here on earth as it is in Heaven.
There is no partial hope. We must right now knock (and continue knocking) on the door of this next season and harvest the same way we knocked the very first time. Hope is an all or nothing proposition and we must not temper it to ease fear of disappointment. Tempered hope is destined to be a self-fulfilling prophecy towards our negative expectation.
I believe God wants to remind us that no matter what we've been through, in His eyes, there really is nothing but hope! Hope is ready to produce, and does not disappoint. Do not let go! When we appoint hope, hope appoints all the goodness of God!
"(Abraham) who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken..." Romans 4:18
Abraham's faith and hope were not dictated to by circumstance or feeling. Rather, Abraham's undaunted hope appointed the promises that had been spoken. If there has ever been a time in this world, and perhaps your life personally, when we need to believe in hope, it is now! Our hope can appoint something much greater than that which fear is trying to feed us. Our hope can appoint the promises and purposes that have been waiting to come forward. (Photo via freeimages)
What is your hope pointing to? Watch hope APPOINT something that is contrary to circumstance and outside the pattern that your past season would try and teach you to expect. Bring each piece of your life before the Father and allow Him to stamp every piece of it, especially your thoughts, emotions, feelings and expectations with His giant rubber stamp of HOPE!
Declare it with us: I will not forebode with negative expectation, but I will allow my hope with God to APPOINT a new season that rises higher, digs deeper, and brings Heaven's perspective into and through every part of my life! In the name of Yeshua, Amen!
Dear Folks... It's time for monthly ministry bills and restocking needy food pantry. This past month was pretty tight and I put much of my own money into the ministry. I can't do that this month (Sept) as I got behind on my own things.
Your donations are so needed and appreciated.
If you can help, please paypal and/or pray.
God bless you all.

THE WRECKER GOD IS COMING...
There are times when I have to pull away to hear what the Lord is saying. I can't just give words out of my own imaginations. I can have words that flow, because I eat His manna, but when they stop, after checking to make sure there is not something I missed in Him, then I have learned to just wait. Because often He has a bigger word - or a newer word - that I have not considered before that He wants and is prompting me to say. I can't manufacture them, there is a presence that visits the words of the Lord. And this is what I received this morning as the burden of His Heart:
Today many are talking about the judgments that are coming and that is no secret to most, that we have missed some things in this nation, and we know God is not pleased. But He deals with the Church first.
God is jealous over relationship with Him. Not just yours, but everyone's. People today are being programmed, by being told who God is to be with them. He is being defined as in a box (or even building) that people can come into and find Him. It's at best, in a church, a limited discovery. I see people saying He fits into this program, this format, that people should come into, that He is saying is not Him. They are defining God and usurping His relationship with the people.
They are not making a path for the person to the Person of Him. There is TOO MUCH control in the Church! Honor of the individual with God is LACKING. He goes beyond the walls! Those who chafe at this don't know Him, but want that control.
The Presence of God speaks to what people need without a human person watching over them to judge their every move or thought. They only (at basic level) need the Word. Teaching to SEEK is what needs to be taught, without the intervention of man "over" their life.
Now too much of that non-accountability can be licentiousness, but if control is in church more than real reverence, it is very offensive to God, and He will contend.
Confusion is where there are two different inferences on what people should do. Church is to be a place where people SHARE what God is doing and has done. It should declare who He is!
No boxes! The Word is Lord. Pastors will govern when people get off of what God wants, but are not governors over souls in ways that usurp the Lord and His Spirit with man. No one is smart enough to know what all God wants to do!
God asks, "Who have you covered? And who is covering you?" Those are the people of God because they do cover each other. That is the NATURE of the Spirit. Abraham was blessed... to be a blessing! Are you one?
Why not? Who (?) restrains you?
Reject those (kindly) those who try to be God to you. Find your confidence in Him.
We are called to be SEEKERS. Do we want control or Presence? Some are stuck. They have done well and gotten stuck there. God says SEEK! Because if you don't, you will go into control and that will offend people AND God.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Prophetic ones, quit seeking "words" all the time! God has words but HIS SHEEP know HIS VOICE and it does not always come through another person. Many live forever in His sight without getting "a word" from someone.
STOP IDOL WORSHIPING!!! People get addicted to words that tickle or flatter and miss the real Word Giver!
God will give wrong words to those who "have to have" a word. That's Scripture! If you want a word in order to be a better servant to Him, then that's okay if you are seeking Him over "the word". But if you want "a word" to get your ego stroked, you will find it a snare to you. Maturity knows more!
There are many who are not in churches who do hear His Voice. Some discern it and some don't, but He can call and they will come! But the Church structure is not ready to receive them all. Because they are coming to find HIM and not a man-made program and especially one that demands all their resources for other's selfish pleasures. That spirit has stopped many moves of God and brought judgments from Him.
Other things have stopped moves too, but the world understands the marketplace and how it works. The Church is to help people get rid of their snares!!!
We need many downloads from God. These downloads are what causes a MOVEMENT. Not just in a few but MANY!!! MAN is NOT IN CHARGE!!!
You will see the marketplace jump on "a movement" before you can get the words fully out of your mouth. They are lustful to capitalize. The cutting edge and dividing line is where you can see God OVER the world spirit, in Love and power.
And you can see, the Church is weak today, compared to former times. But when it/they get adjusted, they can rise again - and will!
If God has to bypass a generation, that will be a sad thing, That would be a shamed generation but God can raise up something out of seeming nothing. He can raise up sons to Abraham out of rocks, John the Baptist said.
We need to always leave place for people to hear God and then share His ways. He has many, many ways which is why we NEED the Scriptures to know the foundations and show the Truth. If the Word is lifted up to be the Living Word, not as apart but as Holy, then we will have a right focus. Then we will have great pleasure and instruction in what we share, as we should.
There is a local focus and a global focus for all the nations. If we do not recognize our King of the nations and the world, we will not find our place.
We need to get the spirit of control OUT OF THE CHURCH. Where is God IN the people? He will clear out the money changers!
God can come in mercy or He can come in wrath to find His place. His Church will be CLEAN before HIS PRESENCE.
Many of My people think they are ready to step into their destinies, but their lives are in disarray.
They do not care for their health or their bodies, their finances are wrongly apportioned, and their households are out of order.
My people, how can I set you before My other children if this is so? You must be sober, vigilant, and prudent in all matters if I am to use you mightily. You have asked Me for much, I require much in return – your fleshly ways and desires.
Many of My children will not walk into their destinies and desires in these end times because their lives are too unruly, and I cannot do as I wish through them.
If you wish to be a Sent One, My children, get your houses and yourselves in order.
4 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
1 Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
Titus 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Thus saith the Lord;
As time dwindles away I hope daily you are growing more and more dependent on Me.
I know you now understand how great My love is for you. My arms are always open for you to come to Me. This nation is failing so fast now. You cannot expect care from your government, for that would be like looking to the enemy for help.
The enemy delights in bringing down My beloved people. Stay alert and keep aware of his actions. Never forget for a moment that you have the victory. He is literally trying to burn your country to ashes, and your government is allowing terrorists freedom to do their thing.
Stay very close and never stop listening for My voice.
Do you want more of me? Ask!
Ask me. Call my name believing I will answer.
Step out and see if I am not there with you.
Do not be ashamed to come to me.
Invite me to participate in your life.
Allow me to bind the wounds which harass you.
Allow the oil of my spirit to anoint you.
Ask me. I have much more.
Much more is available to you.
My plans are for you to succeed.
I have specific places for you to succeed.
Don’t believe the lie of the enemy. You are of great value. I know your
weaknesses and your name. I have called you to grow in my likeness.
I have called you and equipped you for my purposes.
Don’t listen to those words of condemnation and failure. He is not your
judge. My Son stands as your counselor. His blood has bought your
Persevere through the testing. Contend for what I have for you. You are
called and anointed with my purpose. Encourage those around you,
so I might release fresh encouragement for you.
