Breaker Waves Are Coming in From the Deep – A Word by Ashley Cortes
As I was in prayer The Lord gave me an internal vision of a man standing on the shore of a beach. The man was facing into the deep looking out at the waves. The sandy shore was isolated except for the man and a burning bonfire that was to his back. I knew that the bonfire represented the fire of the Lord. It was the man’s rear guard (see Is 52:12).
As the man stood I saw extremely large swells coming towards him, but he remained standing and did not flinch. The large waves, I knew, were to represent the purity of God’s Truth. However, the intensity of the size was enough to make anyone want to back away. Yet, the man stood. I saw the large swell grow and when it reached its peak it crashed over him. The man fell down with the weight of the wave. The wave reached the bonfire and it too, dissipated. As the water receded the man remained laying in the sand. Time passed and he was still. Then, once the swell of the next wave began he abruptly stood and faced the deep, knowing the wave was coming. Immediately, the bonfire burst back into its flame. The fire was considerably larger than it had been before it went out. The wave did, in fact, come, larger and more intense than the prior wave. Yet, the man stood welcoming the next collision with the breaker. The wave crashed down and knocked him over again. Again, the water reached the fire and the fire went out. However, once the man rose with renewed strength the bonfire supernaturally lit. I saw this seven times. The waves grew in size and intensity with each time, yet so did the fire.
The Lord brought to my mind the passage in Proverbs which says, A righteous man falls seven times and rises up again, but the wicked are overthrown by calamity (Prov 24:16). The Lord’s eyes are upon the earth searching for the righteous ones. He is looking for those who will completely surrender to His ways. Most of us know the first commandment, but few of us live it. I’m convinced if we loved the Lord with all of our hearts, minds, soul, and strength we would burn so intensely for the Lord that supernatural manifestations of God’s presence would be bursting forth in every household, town, city, and region of the United States. When the church should be standing they’re running. They’re running to old mindsets of the world. They’re running towards deception rather than bracing themselves for truth.
However, there’s a righteous remnant arising. A remnant that is unconcerned with the pleasures of the world. A remnant who seeks only to please their Heavenly King. This remnant stands in the face of persecution, rejection, disappointment, and discouragement. This remnant stands unoffended, ready to forsake all for the King of Glory.

I see them gathering on the beaches across the nation. Posturing themselves towards the deep. The swells are rising, but they are standing. The fire of the Lord is intensifying. Brace yourself. Truth is coming.
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
