Over the past few days, the Father has been speaking to me about a battle over many of His people and He said this battle is called discouragement. The enemy has set out to do as much damage as possible to stop, interfere with, and delay what God has promised but the one thing he has monopolized on most is using discouragement to keep many of us weighed down and entangled. Now, I know there are many things that are happening in the world that are really discouraging, to say the least. And I know many of us are going through personal hardships that are just as disheartening.
"By His divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know Him, the One who called us to Himself by means of His marvelous glory and excellence. And because of His glory and excellence, He has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share His divine nature and escape the world's corruption caused by human desires. In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God's promises."  2 Peter 1:3-6a God has provided all we need for life. That's prosperity. It ours. But do we access it? Do we pray for that which is already ours? If we don't know how to access what's ours, we will lack in many areas in many ways.
A well-known prophet once said, "When you realize who you are in Christ, you will realize that you are behaving below your nature and living short of your potential." In the book of Genesis God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
You are not waiting on heaven. Heaven and all it contains has already come to you. Jesus announced, "Keep turning away from your sins and come back to God, for heaven's kingdom realm is now accessible" (Matthew 4:17, TPT). At another time, Jesus said, "But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you" (Matthew 12:28, MEV). One other time, Jesus even told some Jewish religious leaders, "The kingdom is not discovered in one place or another, for the kingdom realm of God is already expanding within some of you" (Luke 17:21, TPT).
Prophetic writing indicates that God has placed a burden upon a person to write something. It does not mean the person is a GOOD writer. Training is often still required to perfect the skill. Writing "prophetically" does not mean leave your writing as it is. This is a HUGE misconception among prophetic people. Even "the prophetic" must be filtered through one's mind, perceptions, presuppositions, etc. EVERYTHING must be tempered in love, and sometimes that means "writing" without attitude but fully keeping the message clear.
As followers of Jesus Christ, we serve as watchmen for the people of God, whoever they may be - even the ones who do not yet identify themselves as the people of God. God asks volunteer watchmen like you and me to shoulder a burden for the Jewish people and for all of the descendants of Abraham. God's plan is to bring Jews alongside Gentiles (non-Jews) into full saving knowledge of Christ. He wants to win over Jews, Arabs, Chaldeans, and all residents of the Middle East to His Son.
Most of us think of our Father God as resting since creation and our challenge is to find our identity in the finished work of the cross so that life flows toward us in a miraculous way without exerting a lot of "self" effort. I want to suggest it's flawed theology… that our Father is working right now and, like Jesus, we can too. My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working." John 5:17 NIV Playing a role in the Kingdom has an amazing feature. We find the presence of God in our mountain and in our work. The spiritual backdrop is that we abide in Him with prayer, fasting, listening to His voice, waiting for the stirring of the waters, flowing with His spirit, and co-laboring with whatever the Father is doing.
In repentance and perseverance you shall overcome.  When you delight yourself in Me, even in the secret place, you enable Me to wrap My arms around you to envelope you with My love and enable My streams of living water to flow through you cleansing anything that is not of Me out of your heart, mind, soul, and spirit.  This is the day I am washing clean My bride and purging to the surface all that is not of Me and I am skimming it off. I am enabling you to see how I would see during certain situations that you face.  You say what would Jesus do and I will show you how I feel and how I would want you to think about things you face each day concerning people, trials and tribulations.
Recently the Lord spoke to me that many have had "falsities" falling upon their ears. FALSITIES: the fact of being untrue, incorrect. SYNONYMNS: Untruthfulness, untruth, fallaciousness, falseness, falsehood, fictitiousness, inaccuracy, mendacity, fabrication, dishonest and deceit. ( The enemy is sending these FALSITIES upon many ears right now because we are being invited into a new realm of hearing from God. Fire is falling upon senses of God's people awakening them to greater ways of hearing from God.
Intercession is the spiritual engine of our lives that enables God to do what He, in most cases, will not do without it. Our intercession bridges the gap between heaven and earth to allow the manifestation of God's Kingdom in our present time. The Lord calls us to the place of intercession continually. It is not something He turns off and on. Romans 8:34 "It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us." It is a matter of tapping into the reality that Jesus is continually engaged in this intercession for His people. He ever lives to intercede for us, the saints. If we want to get close to the heart of God then we have to embrace a life of intercession.
