Something is shaking. Something is shifting. Can you feel it?
The atmosphere over America is changing. The atmosphere in homes and families is being stirred and awakened. He is coming, Beloved. He is coming.
I could end this blog post here and be content with how the Lord will speak to each person who reads it. Jesus is coming, Beloved. He is returning for a pure and spotless BRIDE. His heart is hungry and thirsty for partnership with His Queen. Now is the time.
We know not the day or the hour, but this we do know … there is a promise. The King of Glory is patiently waiting for the appointed time to return and receive the blessed and eternal promise of the Most High. Jesus has been promised a Bride, and He will not rest until she is fully by His side … in partnership and love … forever …

HERE COMES THE RAIN
So far, November is shaping up to be a very interesting and “exciting” month. Prayers are being answered, and plans are moving forward. I heard the Lord say, “You have entered a season of ANSWERS.” This will be a month of PROGRESS. Your prayers will not return void. Just as the rain falls to the earth and produces a great harvest … so will the presence of the Lord saturate and release answers in our lives this month. There is a GRACE to soar in November. New heights will be attained in the SPIRIT. Deeper intimacy will form. Beautiful encounters will occur. Heaven and earth will become ONE this month as the November RAIN falls from heaven and touches the parched ground of earth.
“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. ~ Isaiah 55:10-11
Heaven’s rain is coming. The answers are here. The prayers of the saints have released a deluge of responses from the hosts of heaven. Expect great blessings for your obedience and great rewards for your faithfulness. It is time, Beloved. This is kairos.
I had two dreams recently that I believe confirm what the Lord is doing in and through His people right now. There has been a theme of INTIMATE WAR in my life for nearly a year. I believe these dreams accurately represent that theme – the first dream clearly revealing intimacy in our identification with Christ – and the second dream powerfully declaring WAR on the enemy.
In the first dream, I was getting piercings in both of my hands and both of my feet. In the dream, I had been to a piercing parlor, and I had received red gemstones in the place of each piercing – four of them – on the top center of each hand and each foot. I was walking around in so much pain from the piercings. My hands and feet were swollen, and I remember thinking about how much it hurt to have the piercings done. When I woke up, the interpretation was very clear and simple … in the place of our piercing, in the place of our pain, we will receive beautiful jewels. The piercings were in the same places on my body where Jesus was pierced as He was crucified.
Beloved, I want to encourage you … whatever pain you have been through and may be going through … it is purposeful. It will not be wasted. You will come out on the other side with a scar, but there will also be a beautiful awareness that you look more like Christ as a result of what you have been through. Jewels will forever remain in the place of your pain. Do not despise what you have been through. Thank God for the revelation you have received and the glorious red gemstones that are a daily reminder of your victory.
Watch This >> By His Wounds
I was out of town on a work trip recently, and I stayed in Room 220. My room numbers are always prophetic. The Lord gave me Galatians 2:20 …
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Beloved, think about it. We are crucified with Christ.
In the second dream, I saw Jesus on a mountaintop sitting on a horse. He and the horse were larger than life. He was dressed in battle armor, and He had His right arm extended toward the sky with a large sword in it. The horse He was riding was “battle gray,” and the atmosphere around Him appeared to have a stormy hue. In the valley below Him, as far as the eye could see, was an army. This army, I knew, was the army of God. Each soldier was dressed for battle and awaiting the command from Jesus. The army was strong, focused, and ready. Then Jesus spoke in a loud voice:
I HAVE SHUT THE MOUTH OF THE LION! NOW, COME LIKE A WEAPON! COME LIKE A FORCE!
Consider the following verses:
“My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.” – Daniel 6:22
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” – 1 Peter 5:8
“But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me, and that all the Gentiles might hear. Also I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.” – 2 Timothy 4:17
Beloved, THE LORD HIMSELF has shut the mouth of the devouring lion – in your life, and in America. It is time, now, for us to ARISE as the great army God has chosen and COME LIKE A WEAPON, COME LIKE A FORCE … for His Name’s sake.
HE IS KNOCKING
As I have been writing this blog post, there has been an incessant knocking sound outside my window, almost to the point of aggravating me. It is so consistent and steady that I cannot ignore it. Beloved, I know the way God speaks to me. I know how He gets my attention. I tell you … He is knocking. He is knocking so steadily on the door of the human heart that it is almost annoying. The problem is not that He isn’t pursuing us or desiring to come in and dine with us. The problem is that we are so busy and surrounded by so much noise that we cannot hear Him. We do not recognize or acknowledge His knock because we are annoyed by the idea of slowing down to abide with Him. When someone knocks on the door of your home, you must stop whatever you are doing to open the door and communicate with them. Our relationship with God is no different. We must stop. We must answer. And we must commune. He is knocking, Beloved. Let Him in.
A heavy rain is coming to America, Beloved. A heavy rain is coming to the earth. God is knocking. The floodgates are opening, and the ground is thirsty. That is a beautiful combination, an opportunity for GLORY and GRACE to meet Face-to-Face. Get ready, get ready, get ready. He is coming.
“The earth shook; the heavens also dropped rain at the presence of God; Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.” (Psalm 68:8)
