Christ’s Government on Earth – The Royal Priesthood

Christ’s Government on Earth – The Royal Priesthood

In understanding our identity and authority in Christ, we are able to bring His righteous and life-giving government to earth.  Previously, we highlighted what it means to be in covenant with the Almighty, and how the names of God reveal His character and thereby, Who He Is and what He does. Meditating on His names is a form of worship, and in this way we know Him better and He is magnified (becomes bigger) in our eyes. Our walk with God, and our prayer life in particular, suffer because we forget who we are in Christ. It’s easy to regard ourselves as common. And we are not common. We are...

Christ’s Government on Earth – What’s in a Name?

Christ’s Government on Earth – What’s in a Name?

In my last post, we highlighted a scriptural pattern in which God changed a person’s name when He came into covenant with him or her. Examples of this were Abram (Abraham), Sariah (Sarah), and Saul (Paul). A person’s name is tied to his or her destiny; indeed, every time a parent speaks out his child’s name, depending on its meaning, he’s essentially speaking out a blessing or curse over the child. In order to know our Betrothed – to understand Who He Is, His character, and who we are in Him – it is vital to familiarize ourselves with His name. That is, we should...

Preparing the Way for Christ’s Government on Earth

Preparing the Way for Christ’s Government on Earth

Did you ever meet someone who came to know Christ late in life? Did you notice how uninhibited they were in their faith and things of the Spirit? More than their church-grown counterparts, my observation is that these believers generally exemplify Jesus’ statement that “Unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt 18:3). My husband is an example of this. He is able to accept what the Bible says right off, without having to fight through layers of doctrinal arguments and doubt. To him, it’s all very simple. I am grateful that I grew up...

Wisdom, wealth, and what lies ahead

Wisdom, wealth, and what lies ahead

If indeed economic collapse is looming for America and Europe, as discussed in my last blog, and no one knows exactly how that will look, how should the church respond? What was intended for evil “God meant for good, to bring about that many people should be kept alive,” Joseph prophesied to his brothers in Egypt (Genesis 50:20). As I’ve prayed, researched, and discussed with some “experts” – both Christians and unbelievers – the instability of our economy and the American Dollar, I am not fearful so much as expectant. My mind continues to return to...

“Game-changers” and “Keys” – My Prayer for the National Day of Prayer

“Game-changers” and “Keys” – My Prayer for the National Day of Prayer

As people across the United States gather to pray, my prayer for us all is this: “Lord, give us more of the Holy Spirit” (Luke 11:13). As we gather on Thursday, May 7 my deep desire is to see the church pray in unity and according to the Holy Spirit, and as we do, I believe we are going to shake the heavens and the foundations of the earth. I believe we are going to set things in motion and thwart chaos. God is going to open doors that no man can shut (Isaiah 22:22, Revelation 3:7). There is a velocity in this particular National Day of Prayer. Two significant things the Lord spoke this...

“If you remain silent, deliverance will come from elsewhere, and you…will perish”

“If you remain silent, deliverance will come from elsewhere, and you…will perish”

“I’m not going to stir the waters or draw fire by opening up my mouth or taking a stand on social media. I’m going to quietly watch from the sidelines. I’ll even pray. But I’m not getting any more involved than that.” Did you ever have these thoughts? “If I just go about my business, I’ll be safe, blend in, fly beneath the radar”? The Lord has been impressing on me that now is the time for His people to draw the Sword of the Spirit – that is, to speak His truth. And when a sword is drawn, it is a gesture that signals an offensive is about to be launched. The enemy wants...

Tidal Wave/Tsunami Dreams – what kind of storm is coming?

Tidal Wave/Tsunami Dreams – what kind of storm is coming?

Recently, two nights in a row, I had dreams of massive tidal waves coming in and sweeping scores of people on a beach out into the ocean. In both dreams, I was observing from a distance and was not touched, but others were caught unaware. These dreams struck me as significant for a couple reasons: First, I had two other tsunami/tidal wave dreams about three years ago that were highly detailed, but centered around people I knew. In the years following these dreams, a relationship tidal wave overtook this group of people and a huge rift formed where previously that would have been unimaginable....
