A Supernova Of Light Is Here

supernovaI had a dream and in the dream the following occurred.

There was a man whom I knew well. He had been hospitalized. He was in a hospital room that was absolutely discouraging and depressing. I made arrangements to have him moved to a very bright, sunny room. As they were moving him, another older woman appeared. Again, it was someone I was familiar with. She asked if she could be moved as well. The room was secured. As I went to pay I was told it was $207 a week. Even in the dream I was wondering, “how is it so low?”

Like I often do upon awakening, I began to process the dream. The low price, the bright rooms, the lifting of discouragement. $207? I did some research and I ended up after some time of prayer and thinking with the following thoughts.

The whole counsel of God. When I saw 207 I thought a place, a person, something like that. But what I ended up with was I felt strongly was that at the end of the month it would be 828. Immediately the following scripture came to life.

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

Why 4 weeks? Because I believe the Lord is saying there is a fullness to His counsel. And there is a “his purpose” that has to be looked at. Not our purpose or what we think or want to see, but his purpose. What is his purpose?

His purpose. Rather than taking a scripture and applying it there is a “whole counsel” of God available to bring restoration and fullness to people’s lives.  Rather than seek your purpose or what you are “called” begin to investigate what His purpose is. And start to live it. “Apart from Him we can do nothing.”(John 15:5) For the manifestation of His presence is from Him through you. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33) What things? Kingdom things.

Why a month? Because there are cycles of harmony, just as there is a cycle of the full moon. A reminder of His continued presence. A moon that causes ebbs and flows. There is a pulsation of the impending goodness of God being manifested in the earth.

Encouragement. Many are living in the house of healing but not experiencing it, being relegated to the darkness because of their not knowing. There is a sound of encouragement in the air. Lives are being brought to the light.

The time is now!

I found myself “upset” this morning as I was thinking about the sickness trying to affect people. I saw a post that frustrated me, because like sickness, it further entrapped people. I saw invisible enemies stealing joy. I saw people creating enemies that were not real and allowing the illusions to be empowered. I saw dabbling with old covenant thinking and the application of principles that ought to have disappeared with the work of the cross. Yet there they were!

The word dabble means to immerse one’s hands or feet in liquid and stir it. I sensed even as I wrote this that the dipping hands in waters brings a sense of cleanness but can never accomplish what the blood was for. The lifting of your clean hands is not the result of your actions but His actions. For that is a kingdom reality. (I am not talking about a prophetic act or the invalidity of the old covenant being a shadow of things to come.)

I was frustrated. I understand hardship and the desire to be “free” but I know it will never be found by acting as if God is external and afar. It will not be resolved by works, traditions or religion.

The kingdom is at hand. The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy. Today. Right now.

Grace has done it.

Too many are looking for the answers to be found in old covenant thinking and application. Stop going someplace or seeking for but recognize that you are that place! You are the meeting place of God (John 1:14), you are the table in the wilderness set amongst your enemies, you are the garden of goodness. (Song Of Solomon 5:1) Your cup is running over!

Stop trying to go someplace and start being the place. Stop trying and start being.

In Isaiah 32 it tells us that rulers will be like “shelters from the wind and refuges from the storm.” We are kings and priests. We are rulers in a kingdom with a King. We are Some Place. Where we are light can be found. When I think about heaven and the wow’s of God I am reminded that all things are in Christ and He holds all things together. (Colossians 1:17) Taking that one step further He dwells in me. Heaven is in my heart! So when I think of stellar explosions of light, I think of supernovas sending the  light across the galaxy. And that folks is carried in Him and He is tabernacling in you.

Today there is a flooding of light coming to your life, your cup is overflowing. No longer shall you give from a half full expectancy but you will function from an “all filled” up experience. Stop “dieting” with God and eat the fat and drink the sweet (Nehemiah 8:10) and enjoy the fullness of His goodness. Today engage in the understanding of His marvelous light, for His appearance is not a “light affliction” but a light affection. Today you will lift up holy hands! There is a celebration today over you. His purpose is revealed. “He is a good God, worthy to be praised.” No more living in the dark. No more wondering. His reach towards you knows no bounds.

I saw angels being dispatched as hands were raised. I saw lives changing and heard sighs of relief.

Today is the day the Lord has made…

Where Do You Turn?

2013-08-22 10.50.40I have noticed a phenomenon that concerns me, not for religion’s sake but for the fact that I desire a higher quality of living in people’s lives. It is that  of seeking alternatives to God and His provision.

When I came into the kingdom of light, my health was not high. I had gone through times of severe depression which led to obesity and the related side effects. I took medicines like candy and thought the fix remained on the aisles of the local pharmacy. When I became a believer I had my eyes opened to the scripture found in the book of 1 Peter. Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. Continue reading Where Do You Turn?

Big Brother Is Watching You!

conspiracyHa! You thought I was going to talk about the 200 million emails a day the NSA has been watching. No, what I want to talk about is even more insidious, darker and more sinister. Mindsets!

A few weeks ago I prophesied romance is in the air. That this is the year for many who have sat, waiting. Thinking life has passed them by and God forgot their number. I have recently prophesied increase for some, respite for others, restoration of family and more. These are all what most of would say are good things to speak, to desire to see occur in people’s lives. Yet some were disturbed and let me know. Continue reading Big Brother Is Watching You!

A Fresh Word From The Ovens Of Heaven

breadWhat a dream!

The people were running. There was no food to eat. And yet, there was a knowing by many that something supernatural was about to happen. There was a tension in the air. The smell of victory was closing in. People were being encouraged to stand strong. (For some friends it could be a football game this weekend!)And then the answer began to be seen. As the people’s voices were raised the landscape changed, the postures straightened and joy rang out across the battlefields.

I am not sure about you but I am a sucker for the underdog. More than likely that is an American thing on some levels, but I am pretty sure it is a Jesus thing as well. It was at the cross that God equalized things for many. Continue reading A Fresh Word From The Ovens Of Heaven

A Simple Word, A Word Of Peace

bird nestMany years ago I found myself in trouble. Not just a little trouble but a lot. I did not know peace and I tried to find it.

Long before I ever got saved I sought to find peace. I was tortured by depression, anxiety and such. I was on enough medicines to sink a battleship.

And then one day in the midst of turmoil the Lord spoke to me and peace came in the midst of the storm. And I came to realize that His peace was supernatural and efficient in ways I could never imagine. Certainly years of self-help, meditation and seeking had not worked for me. Continue reading A Simple Word, A Word Of Peace

We Are Not Puppets

blue laserLast night as my wife and I were driving home, I saw amazing “blue lasers” come out of the sky. At first I thought it might be reflections in the air from a police car and its blue lights. But clearly they were directional blue as if shot from lasers.

I shared with my wife.

My thought at the time was simple. Continue reading We Are Not Puppets

How To Lose Polarization In 6 Days

can we talkI could only hope! Last night I wrote, “I love my friends.” I do. I really do. And I have friends across the spectrum. I have friends who are the antithesis of most of what I believe, in fact. I have friends who are not Democrats, not liberal, not believers, not heterosexual. I have friends who probably step way over the lines towards anarchy and others who think “too much government” is not enough.

The other day I made a comment about various aspects of the government and some were concerned. Let me make it clear, I think we are in trouble and the answer is in us and not in a top heavy government. With that said, my answer lies in Christ and not in man. Continue reading How To Lose Polarization In 6 Days

Friends Don’t Let Friends Lose Their Future

changeprocessI read a particular article that came close to home. It showed a community that was being forced to make large decisions regarding school children. The town like many is on the “downhill slide” in regard to economics.

I read a similar article on a region troubled by decreasing business and a declination in the business atmosphere. Continue reading Friends Don’t Let Friends Lose Their Future

Vision Sunday 11/10/13

During worship in our fellowship, I received a vision I felt I was to share with the prophetic class I would be working with at night. Holding my granddaughter Naomi, the vision appeared and began to just “consume” me with intensity.


I saw a large ocean area far from the beach. The blue-green of the water intrigued me.  In the far distance I saw the white crest of the waves from the foam as they moved.

And then my eyes saw the lone surfer in the water. Paddling, it was clear to see that he was losing his energy. In the back ground I saw the long, beginning arch of a gigantic wave. But the surfer was not seeing it. It got larger and larger in my view. The intensity of it was real. I could hear the hissing of the foam. I could hear the quiet as it began to consume the smaller waves.

The Lord took me out of that vision. I was looking into the eyes of my granddaughter. The music was playing. A couple was dancing.

I thought “wow, is this for now?” Nothing fit. Nothing made sense.


I went through worship a little discombobulated. I was thinking. Was he going to miss the wave? Was he going to turn around? The Lord spoke to me about timing. I thought of Issachar. (Funny my friend Mark would share about the woman and the oil who was from Shunem in the tribe of Issachar.)

Last night I shared with our prophetic class the vision and what I thought was being spoken.

  • That many saw themselves as the surfer. Out there. Paddling. With no around.
    (Hebrews 12:12 “For this cause let the hands which are hanging down be lifted up, and let the feeble knees be made strong,”)
  • That there many who felt as though they had “missed” a previous wave and were destined to just paddling. (Joshua 1:5 “No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you.”)
  • That it was necessary to evaluate our circumstances, to look around. (Psalm 8:6-8 “You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.”)
  • To recognize why you are there.  (Habakkuk 2:3 “For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”)
  • To see the timing of it all..  (1 Chronicles 12:32 “Of the sons of Issachar, men who understood the times, with knowledge of what Israel should do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their kinsmen were at their command.”)
  • Recognize that when the wave comes it will be a time to stand. (Ephesians 6:13 “Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.”)
  • You will “walk” on the waters of life and be in His rest.  (Psalm 93:4 “The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.”

There is a beginning and an end to most things. This describes where we might be. You are not too old (Caleb –Joshua 14:11-12), too small (Gideon-Judges 6:15)or  too uneducated (Acts 4:13). You did not miss it. You may get caught up in the circumstance, but lift your eyes to the hills …wait …you can look inside! That is where your help comes from. You are not subject to atmospheres. You are the atmosphere. You are a thermostat and not a thermometer. (I Timothy 4 Paul asks this of Timothy.)  You are not looking for the light, you are the light. You are not looking for the light at the end of the tunnel, for you are the light in the tunnel.(Matthew 5:14)

A wall of water can be pretty destructive. Or you can get on top of it. This is a season of walking on waters, (Matthew 14:22-33) of rising above (Isaiah 40:31) and being the head and not the tail. (Job 9:8)

I encouraged the class to take this word and begin to prophesy to their families, their friends their communities.

“Stand! Stand up! Get up! This is your season. This is your wave. This is it! The great wave that will sweep to families and friends, will wash over communities and nations! Your time is here! Look around. The wave is coming. No longer will you paddle but you will STAND!”

(Reminded me of a song by Sly and The Family Stone)

I think I want his jacket…
STAND (1969)
In the end you’ll still be you
One that’s done all the things you set out to do
There’s a cross for you to bear
Things to go through if you’re going anywhere
For the things you know are right
It’s the truth that the truth makes them so uptight
All the things you want are real
You have you to complete and there is no deal
Stand!. stand!, ooh!
Stand!. stand!, ooh!
You’ve been sitting much too long
There’s a permanent crease in your right and wrong
There’s a midget standing tall
And a giant beside him about to fall
Stand!. stand!, ooh!
Stand!. stand!, ooh!
They will try to make you crawl
And they know what you’re saying makes sense and all
Don’t you know that you are free
Well at least in your mind if you want to be

Stand!, stand!

Awesome Time With Family

20130622_182131There are great times with family and then there are GREAT TIMES. Yesterday was one of those. My daughter’s reception for all the family and friends who did not make the trip to St. Lucia. It was great to be with them all.

I love my family. Needless to say getting them all to the same place to celebrate my daughter’s wedding for those who could not make the wedding in St. Lucia.
