The Lord Is Saying:

The Lord is saying:

The Voic
e of the Lord is powerful. The Voice of the Lord is full of majesty. The Voice of the Lord is enjoined to your voice as you speak forth in obedience with the Word That Is Sent.
“I send forth My Word; it will not return to Me void. It will accomplish the purpose for which I sent it.”
Therefore, just speak, open your mouth wide for I will fill it, says the Lord. The fear you have had is going to dissipate. The anxious heart will settle into the rhythm of My Grace. Haven’t I told you that My grace is sufficient for you, that it is in your weakness that My strength will be manifest?”
Nothing will be able to withstand you all the days of your life. it is in humility and the fear of the Lord where you will find riches, honor and life. I have given to you the keys of My Kingdom and the gates of hell will not prevail against you.. My favor is upon you, says the Lord.and the anointing will break the yoke, says the Lord.”
“In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence; and His children will dwell in safety.”

Thomas Downes.

Turn Around Because Of What’s At Stake..

Turn Around Because Of What’s At Stake..

Conforming to the ways of the world will get you nowhere. What propels you forward is the power of God that dwells within you. You have a treasure within you. You have a drive within you that has not been tapped into yet. You may not even be aware of how powerful the Spirit of the Lord really is within you.
You may be asking “What do you mean, there is power, or a drive I haven’t even tapped into? What makes you think you really know what I have within me? You don’t even know me?,”
I don’t have to know you to know what you haven’t even seen, or heard.
For the eye has not seen, nor the ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man the things that God has in store for those who love Him.. For God reveals those things to those who love Him by His Spirit; yes, even the deep things of God. (1 Cor. 2)..
If you are not rooted and grounded in love, you are not comprehending the length the width, the depth and the height and not knowing the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge.
Because to Him Who is able to do far above all that we can ask or think, ACCORDING TO THE POWER THAT IS At WORK IN US, unto Him will be all the glory in the Church. (Ephesians.3).
The Lord wants you to see what HE sees. He wants to give you visions and dreams. He wants you to know the Voice of the Lord. He wants for you to be able to live out what He is showing you.. To do that you must believe that He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
“I will be found by you when you seek Me and search for Me with all of your heart.,.(Jeremiah 29)
“Call upon Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things that you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3)
He will not give you what you won’t accept, even though you are called by name.
It’s time to repent. There are those who will refuse.to hear what the Lord is saying. It is time to turn around. There are those who have hardened their hearts against the Voice of The Lord Who calls us by name.. It is time to reconsider, and really take stock of what’s at stake when we refuse Him who calls us. For obedience is better than sacrifice.
“I beseech you brethren by the mercies of God that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God which will be your worship. And be not conformed to this world , but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you will prove what is the good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God”. (Romans 12).
You have been called for such a time as this. This is not a time to be loose in your walk with the Lord,, and lose. Lose What?
Lose your anointing. For the anointing is what will break the yoke..

What The Lord Is Saying

Here is what the Lord is saying: “I am doing a work in you that you wouldn’t believe if I told you. It will be a profound work in your mind, but I see it as already done. I am watching over My Word to complete it.
No adversary will be able to shame it because I hasten My Word to perform it.
I have accelerated My intent and everything will fall into place
No weapon formed against you will prosper, for the accusations against you are being outrun by the truth.
Don’t condemn yourself for something that is lower than you are., for I have made your feet like the feet of a deer so that you can walk in the high places I have prepared for you; I have given you the Keys of the Kingdom, and the gates of hell cannot prevail against you; says the Lord.”

The Prototype Of Christ: The Tabernacle.

The Prototype of Christ: The Tabernacle

In the Tabernacle that the Lord gave Moses instructions to build, there is a piece called the seven golden candlesticks, or a Menorah.. They were lit with fire representing the illumination of the Holy Spirit, or revelation, for the person entering into the Holy of Holies. It was part of the prototype of what Jesus would become for you when you believe in Him as your Lord and Savior.
In the outer court,,the Brazen Altar where the Lambs were sacrificed was the prototype of the Cross on which He gave Himself as the ransom for you
The Bronze Laver was representative of the washing of water by the Word. Jesus is the Word that was Sent. “Hereby are you cleansed by the Word I have spoken to you.”
In the Holy Place is the Table of Shew Bread (Communion).; “This is My body which is broken for you.”. Then the Seven Golden Candlesticks, for the Holy Spirit giving revelation to you; “And the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My Name He will show you all things. Everything that the Father has is Mine. And the Holy spirit will take from Mine and show it unto you.”
Revelation will be your portion.
Then there is also in the Holy Place, the Alter of Incense, meaning the praises of the saints.
As we enter into the Holy of Holies through the veil, which is Christ himself, Jesus said: “I am the veil, I am the door of the sheep. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”.
In the Book of Revelation chapter 4, we see the seven blazing lamps of fire, just as is mentioned in the Tabernacle Moses made with the instruction given to him by the Lord.
Now because of what Jesus did on the Cross, cleansing us with the blood He shed, and cleansing us with the Word that He Sends, so that we can enter in to the Holy of Holies with our hands washed with pure water and our minds sprinkled from an evil conscience, we can come boldly to the throne to find grace to help us in our time of need.
And, we can receive revelation of the Word of the Lord because now Jesus has given us through the Spirit of the Lord, the Mind of Christ, and the Word that He reveals to us..
Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord.
Come into the Holy of Holies;
Enter by the Blood of the Lamb;
Come into His Presence with singing;
Worship at the Throne of God.
Lifting holy hands to the King of Kings;
Worship; worship Jesus.”.
.
I recommend reading Revelation Chapter 4 and Exodus 25- 30..

Remember What God Has Promised.

Remember What God Has Promised.

The enemy may have come at you from one direction but he will be scattered, and is being scattered, in seven different directions; Because Jesus,the Lion of Judah, has arrived and has become your shield and your exceedingly great reward. The Lord has no equal. He has no rival. There is no power that can ever overwhelm or overcome His intent.
Legions of angels are at His bidding. There is no army or any force that quench the fire of His Presence. Remember, that nothing is to hard for God. Whatever God has promised you, He is able also to perform.
“For without faith it is impossible to please Him; for he who comes to God must believe that He is God; and that He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”
“There will be a performance of His good Word toward you to bring you back to the place of rich fulfillment.”

Thomas Downes.

Speak Lord, Your Servant Is Listening.

Speak Lord, Your Servant Is Listening.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, the Word of the Lord is pouring into the prophets who have been on the cusp of the breakthrough they have been told about, and have been speaking forth in obedience.
Obedience is better than sacrifice, therefor My prophets have been aware of the burden of the Word Of The Lord, the unction from the Holy One that has been carrying the mantle placed upon them.
“Do not hold back, says the Lord, for I am doing a thing in your nation the likes of which have never been seen before, but I have been revealing these things to My servants the prophets. For there will be a performance in power and such authority that men will be in awe of the works of My Hand. My Word will prosper in the hands of those to whom The Word Is Sent.
Do not be dismayed by the faces of those who oppose you, for you will prosper before them by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of the testimony. For the Word I Send you shall break the yoke before you
There is going to be the unraveling of the plans of your adversary where his face will look in horror at the failure of his workings. No weapon that is formed against you will prosper. The words spoken against you, you shall condemn; they will break apart, having no basis, having no authority, because his evil intent will be overcome by the good of My Word. For the Voice of the Lord is powerful, and the Voice of the Lord is full of Majesty, says the Lord..
War can have forces of good, and forces of evil. When the evil is being exposed by the good, the sword of Jehu will prosper, and the forces of evil will be put to shame. Good will triumph over evil The anointing will break the yoke.
Speak Lord, for your servant is listening..

He Will Send Forth More.

He Will Send Forth More

The more you walk in the Gifts of the Spirit, the more you become enabled by the Holy Spirit. The more you listen for the Voice of the Lord, He will send forth more of what you are crying out to Him for. To him who has, more will be given. As your desire for His Presence increases, His Word will come to you with greater intensity and power. Awareness of His Presence will become heightened more and more as you finally drive yourself to point of greatest desire for Him. The measure of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, is directly related to your desire to walk with Him in Spirit and in truth. Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up.
