A SMALL CLOUD ON THE HORIZON 

Audio:





For many years the body of Christ has been crying out to God for another great revival. There is a scripture in 1 Kings 18:41 when the Prophet Elijah had told Ahab that there is a "sound" of an abundance of rain. He then prayed and sent his servant to go and "look" towards the sea. The servant didn't see anything, so Elijah told him seven times to go back. He then returned and told Elijah that he saw a small cloud rise out of the sea, as a mans hand. This was a sign that the rain was coming.Then it came to pass that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. In the same way, some of us are hearing the sound, and some are beginning to see a cloud as a mans hand, but there is an abundance of rain approaching.

The Lord says; I am sending an abundance of rain, the latter and the former rain. As you launch out in faith and open your spiritual eyes, you will begin to see the rain arriving. As you open your spiritual ears, you will hear the sound of revival approaching. I am about to bring many streams together for this great outpouring and as you look, you will begin to see a small cloud as a mans hand. In this season of rain, ask for the rain. There is a dimension that is available to you and as you step in and allow Me to take you deeper, you will begin to experience a new level of My glory. In this time of acceleration, hearken unto My voice and surrender yourself to Me. I am looking for willing and obedient vessels who will be carriers of My Glory, and usher in the latter day rain. Do not stay on the outskirts, but enter in to what I am releasing. Do not count yourself as unworthy, but many will be used who are in a hidden place right now with Me.

The days ahead will be glorious for those who receive. Many things will transpire and multitudes will be brought in to the Kingdom. Many will experience breakthroughs of significant proportions. There will be great miracles that will accompany this outpouring. What seemed impossible with man will become a natural occurrence. Do not be influenced by those with wavering faith, but stand steadfast knowing that I will watch over My word to perform it. Have nothing to do with those that try to cut off the flow of My river. Do not allow anything to deviate you from this truth. Do not become discouraged when the darkness appears to be dominating, because it is the dark clouds that are carrying the rain. You will see that the glory of this latter house is going to be greater than the former house, and in this place I will bring peace says the Lord. 

Deuteronomy 11:13-14                                                                                                              
And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My commandments which I command you today, to love the Lord your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul,Then I will give you the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil. 

1 Kings 18:44-45a                                                                                                                    
Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, "There is a cloud, as small as a man's hand, rising out of the sea!" So he said, "Go up, say to Ahab, 'Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.'"Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain.

Zachariah 10:1                                                                                                                                      
Ask the Lord for rain In the time of the latter rain. The Lord will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone.

Acts 2:17-19                                                                                                                              
And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy. I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath

TRANSPLANTED FOR EXPANSION & GROWTH 

Audio:




The Holy Spirit showed me an allegory of a large plant in a small flower pot. This plant had outgrown the pot in which it was originally placed in. It was created to grow wide and high in stature but the size of the pot confined the plant and hindered it's growth. The roots then become what is called "root bound". Root bound is when the roots have grown too large for its container resulting in matting or tangling, and they become strangled and restrained. The plant could no longer hold any water and there is no room for soil. If it stayed in this pot long enough, eventually it would die. In order for this plant to grow to its full potential it would have to be uprooted and replanted. The Lord is showing me that some of you are restrained just as that plant is. Jesus wants to bring you to a broader place, but you must be set free from being root bound.

The Lord says; allow Me to uproot you from the confines and the restrictions that you are in, and replant you into the place where you will be free to flourish and grow. When you are replanted you will be able to recognize the freedom that I have for you, and you will then begin to walk in maturity. You will no longer be bound to religious traditions or enslaved by the doctrines of man. My plan is not only to set you free, and release you from all strongholds, but also to advance you to a higher place. Don't allow anything to restrain you from pursuing what I have qualified you to do. Refuse to allow anything to hinder your spiritual growth. I have created you to be a Sequoia tree, not a Bonsai tree but you are limiting yourself. Don't let spiritual stagnation keep you from moving ahead to the greater life. I desire to set you free with a purpose and a plan which is to use you to set other captives free. Allow Me to bring you into the place where you will be able to grow and prosper. As you do, you will be able to discern My ways. 

My Kingdom is about expansion. It is time to break out of the old pot, and replant your life for root expansion, so that you will no longer be limited to the confines of the old system. Do not allow root rot to set in due to stagnation. This will only bring death to your vision. Don't allow people to restrain you to smallness, but it is time to branch out into all that you have been created for. Allow Me to bring you into the liberty that I have for you, so that you will be free to walk with Me in Spirit and in truth. Don't allow anything to hinder you or tie you down. Now is the time to release old mindsets of doubt and unbelief. In your decisions, always pursue wisdom and follow after peace so that you will not make foolish choices any longer. Your circumstances will no longer control you, and manipulation will no longer rule you. My word is life and it will keep you from decay. My word is truth and it will keep you from denial. My plan for you is not only for you to survive, but also to thrive in all that I have called you to do, to expand My Kingdom says the Lord.


Isaiah 54:2-3                                                                                                                          
"Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited.

1 Chronicles 4:9-10                                                                                                                    
And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, "Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!" So God granted him what he requested.

Galatians 5:1                                                                                                                            
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

NAVIGATING THROUGH THE EBBS & FLOWS

Audio:


The Lord showed me a huge ocean that was filled with waves. There were people swimming in this ocean but some were having a difficult time trying to align themselves properly to stay afloat. Several were struggling as the waves were tossing them back and forth, to and fro, and some were even being pulled under the water. But then there were others who knew how to maneuver themselves and swim over the waves as they glided with ease. They knew how to ride the tide, and allow the surge to pull them toward the shore, rather than out to sea. They understood the tactics to avoid the rip currents that were trying to pull them under. They were still when the wind came because they knew that the wind conditions affect the waves. They did not panic but they were those who were determined and focused.

The Lord says; Allow Me to train you how to rise above every situation that is hindering you from moving forward and anything that is trying to harm you. Do not allow yourself to become consumed with fear or confusion. Don't allow yourself to be tossed to and fro with every wave that comes against you. There will always be ebbs and flows in your life and I want to teach you how to soar above these circumstances and walk on the water of adversity. I want to train you how to be more than a conqueror and overcome all obstacles in your way that would prevent you from reaching your spiritual potential. I will teach you how to stay afloat and to keep you from being pulled under by torrents of difficulties. Trust Me to keep you from drowning in despair when the current rises against you. I will show you how to rise above the rip tides that are trying to pull you down.

As you learn to trust Me, you will no longer allow the situations in your life to engulf your mind in confusion, and you will be able to make wise decisions. I will guide you through the hardship and crisis, and lead you out of every predicament that challenges you. You will no longer waver between two opinions. As you spend time with Me, I will bring your prayers to life. I will restore joy to your heart and peace to your mind. You will no longer live a life of despair. Allow Me to show you how to navigate through anything that comes against you. I will show you how to walk through troublesome times, and deal with difficult people. You will recognize and have victory over the sharks that are trying to devour you. Do not limit Me and do not look at the winds and the waves of adversity, but put your focus on Me to bring you out when trying times arise, says the Lord.

Isaiah 54:11-12
"O you afflicted one, Tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems, and lay your foundations with sapphires. I will make your pinnacles of rubies, your gates of crystal, and all your walls of precious stones.

Matthew 8:24-27
Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him. And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep. Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, "Lord, save us! We are perishing!" But He said to them, "Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?" Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. So the men marveled, saying, Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?

Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Breaking Out Of The Old & Coming Into The New

Audio:



The Lord showed me a basket of mixed nuts in their shells. There were a large variety such as pecans, Brazil nuts, hazel nuts, pine nuts, cashews, pistachio nuts as well as others. Some of them were slightly peeled open, some had soft shells that were easy to crack, while others were shut tight in hard shells which were more difficult to break open. The Lord is showing me that He wants to release us out of the confinements that we are entrapped in, and whatsoever things that are holding us in bondage. As we enter into a new year, Jesus wants to release us from these things, so that we will be free to enter into all that He has available for us.

The Lord says; allow Me to release you from anything that is holding you captive. Allow Me to set you free from any strongholds that need to be broken in your life and break through the obstructions that are confining and restricting you from moving forward. I will break through the walls and the barriers that are imprisoning you. I will break the chains that are holding you in bondage and release you from anything that is hindering you from a life of liberty. I am the Lord of the breakthrough, and the God that liberates and brings freedom. Don't resist this liberty to be free which is available to you. I will supply of all your needs as you trust me in every area of your life. Trust Me for your healing, for your deliverance, for your financial needs, for your family and in your marriage. I will bring a breakthrough to every situation and circumstance that is burdening you as you allow Me to. Allow Me to release you from habits that need to be broken, patterns that need to be changed and old mindsets that need to be annulled or renewed. I will mend you of the fragmented pieces from things in your past and break any constraints that need to be torn down.

I am the Lord of the breakthrough as Baal Perazim in your life, and I will release you from anything that is deterring you from My plans and calling. Come into My presence and allow Me to submerge you with My glory. Allow Me to release the balm of Gilead over you to heal and restore you. Allow me to wash away all the burdens in your life with the oil of My presence. I will set you free from tormenting thoughts in your mind. You will no longer be afraid of the terror by night, or of the arrow that flies by day as you abide in Me and allow My word to abide in you. As you put your trust in Me and allow Me to restore you, you will no longer be ensnared once again in the things that you have been set free from. Do not be lured back into that very thing that you have been delivered from, or anything that will bring entrapment and put you back into bondage. Be set free as a bird being released from a cage. Allow Me to release you from the things which are preventing you from living the abundant life and becoming the person who I have created you to be. You will then experience My peace and live in victory in every area of your life says the Lord.

2 Samuel 5:20
So David went to Baal Perazim, and David defeated them there; and he said, "The Lord has broken through my enemies before me, like a breakthrough of water." Therefore he called the name of that place Baal Perazim.

Isaiah 61:3-4
To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. "And they shall rebuild the old ruins, They shall raise up the former desolations, And they shall repair the ruined cities, The desolations of many generations.

John 8:36
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.










"Whenever God gives freedom, it is always implicit that the freedom He gives you can be given to other people.
You can go around setting other people free from the very thing that you were victimized by. God comes into
your life and He turns the areas of your abuse into areas of ministry and significance. He gives you a calling
in the area where the enemy tried to strip you of your identity or even kill your life. Your testimony is the
beginning of your ministry!"
