We continue our series of some time ago.  We have seen Yeshua as our Priest, as our Prophet, and now as our King. In John 14 Yeshua introduces to the disciples that He is going away. He is returning to the Father. This should not strike fear, but joy. Yeshua would send someone who would bring Him ever present in every moment. The Ascension account in Acts 1 is very striking because He is lifted up as two angels are present to the disciples. They remind the disciples that as they see Him go up they would see Him descend to rule all nations in the same manner.
Many ask and I am sure even many more wonder what I mean when I say that I long to be raw, real, and uncensored to God and the rest of us. Well before I tackle this let me tell you that the reason I have decided to share this is because I have noticed that there seems to still be this notion and false belief that somehow those of us that write and share our discoveries through books have it altogether and have somehow reached some sort of utopia that only the few and privilege can. Please let me begin by telling you that as far as I am concerned this is not true at all and in fact it is because it is quite the opposite that I am able to share and appreciate what others maybe also struggle with.
The shift has happened! On June 2nd I released a Word about feeling a sense of urgency, like I was running out of time to get things done and cleaned out. It feels like "spring cleaning," only its summer! I wanted to start going through my house and getting rid of things I no longer needed, and organizing things that had become cluttered. God revealed to me today that as it is in the natural so it is in the spirit. What does that mean?
What is your obstacle? Is there a pattern you are needing to break? You can accomplish more with less. Believing prayer is better than begging prayer.  Prayers of faith rather than prayers from a place of wandering. God clearly spoke to us recently on how "faith-filled" prayer is the key to answers. Instead of praying from a place of trying to get God to do something, pray from the place of what God has already accomplished. He is the Beginning and End.
God has amazing dreams for us, but many of us live our entire lives not coming close to reaching those. As I think about this, I see we fall into three categories:

Those who are just afraid to dream. Those who understand their dreams but they seem unreachable. Those who reach their dreams.

I have fallen in all three categories, but without a doubt, the third category is the most satisfying. What we really want is to be satisfied, but that comes with its own challenges, doesn't it?
"Let your speech be always with grace..." The word translated as "speech" is logos in Greek, and its meanings include- a word, uttered by a living voice, embodies a conception or idea (Thayers Definitions). I simply love that definition! We have a "Living Voice" resident within us, through the Holy Spirit! Father spoke us into existence (that is how He creates things) with life-giving words, words that actually embodied the conception of our intended destiny! Since we are made in His image, we possess that same creative power to speak words that actually embody the release of God-intended destiny to those around us!
The true prophetic voices that are emerging have been thoroughly processed in a good way, in a God way, behind the scenes. You can truly see and hear Christ in them. They've surpassed the old model and identity of a "prophetic voice" and have listened to the request and desire of Jesus - to become a living ORACLE for Him; One with Him, One With LOVE. Emanating His very presence. They take great joy in Galatians 2:20 because they live without agenda. They live for Him. "It's no longer I who lives but Christ within me." or as the Distilled Version says, "I am now enjoying a second existence, simply Christ using my body."
I and others have been crying out about the over sheltered self-celebrating church of today that is naive and unprepared and VULNERABLE!  When we do not go out into the world and share the good news reality and joy about God, we only set ourselves up for the other agenda. Our children matter, but so do YOU!  It's not about putting the whole burden on YOUR shoulders but finding your place and position in the Body - and no it's not all easy, but it can be FUNCTIONAL! Don't let "the church" or any other minister tell you that it's all on you. We need to learn how to be Spirit led so that we can do His agenda with the gifts He has given and wants to equip us in.
Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9 (see also 2 Thessalonians 3:13) Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:14-16 This word redeem is translated from the Greek verb, exagorazo, which means "buying up the opportunity."  The word time in Ephesians 5:16 is from the Greek word for time, kairos, or a time in which something is seasonable (a specific time, as opposed to chronological time or days on a calendar). It can also mean "a specific time pregnant with destiny."
The swans are migrating north. Recently we saw a pair of gorgeous, white swans on a small lake in Alaska. They were in very shallow water feeding. One swan swam away into deeper water. The swans began trumpeting to each other. The calls sounded like noisy honks, continuing until the second one joined its partner in the deep. These rare Trumpeter swans winter in the northwestern US and southwestern Canada, migrating over 1400 miles to Alaska en route to their final arctic destination for nesting each summer.
