Christmas and the Dreams That Saved Jesus’ Life – A Word by Charity Virkler Kayembe

View Bio glorywaves.org What We Don’t Know As Christmas approaches, we read again the timeless story of the Son of God’s entry into our world. It is amazing to me what we are told, and also what we’re not told.  For example, consider Joseph, the man chosen by God to be the earthly father of Jesus. What do we really know about him anyway? Does Scripture tell us about Joseph’s faithful Temple attendance? Does the Gospel of Matthew record his impressive knowledge of the Law and the Prophets? Did Luke bother to mention how often he fasted or how much tithes and offerings he gave?  While these are all wonderful attributes that I expect were fully on display in Joseph’s life, curiously, God didn’t let us in on any of thisinformation. You would think the Lord might want to highlight some of the traits about Joseph that made God choose...

Give The Gift Of Forgiveness For Christmas – A Word by Bill Yount

Bill Yount View Bio BillYount.com I sense the Lord saying, "Unwrap your enemies for Christmas: FORGIVE them and you will be unwrapping yourself. Some gifts come in offensive wrapping paper." I was offended by someone recently. I knew what I should do, but I had no power to do it. I know all the Scriptures on forgiveness and blessing our enemies, and that even made it worse. While I was driving my car yesterday, the Lord spoke, "Bill, if you will forgive and bless your enemy, I will bless you." Suddenly, those words took my focus off of that person who hurt me back to the Lord and an overwhelming desire to be blessed myself. Oh, how I wanted and needed God to bless me. Immediately, the hurt began to heal as it dawned on me that when we do what God tells us to do, He blesses us. Obedience...

Heaven Is Waiting For The Song Of The Lamb – A Word by Wanda Alger

Wanda Alger View Bio WandaAlger.me There is a sound that must be heard in this coming year if we are to overcome the principalities at work over nations and the demonic strongholds that are choking the life out of God’s people. This sound will cause every living thing to succumb to the presence of the Lord and make room for the King of Glory to come in. In our corporate worship we must come out of the river of delights and into the holy of holies where kingdoms rise and fall and all of creation responds. Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and...

A Divine Setup is Being Prepared! – A Word by Angie Stolba

Angie Stolba View Bio Angiestolba.com   But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. | 2 Corinthians 2:14 The pressure and turbulence that many have been feeling has seemed insurmountable. However, in the midst of it all, I continue to hear the Lord saying, “What looks like a  setback is actually a divine setup for your promotion and advancement!” Pay no attention to the smoke and mirrors that the enemy would try to throw up in your path; he will not be able to stop the blessing and favor that the Lord is bestowing upon you. Remember that our God is the One who causes you to triumph. Watch now, as He prepares a table of blessing and feasting before you in the very presence of your enemies. The Lord...

Consecrate Much In December – A Word by Yolanda Perry

Yolanda Perry https://www.facebook.com/yolandaworldwide/ As I was preparing to do my morning time with the Lord, I heard the word, "consecrate". Its most common meaning to me is "to set apart". Immediately, I began to sense that this is what the Lord will require much of this month. To me, it seems completely out of pocket since the Lord has already spoken that this will be the month of the #SecondWind. That many will experience accelerated grace and rapid production. It is also typically the busiest time of the year. Yet, He is calling for consecration. What does this mean? What will this look like? In the midst of all that we are pressed to do, even those things God is calling us to do; He still wants us to set ourselves apart and allow Him to deal with us. Those who have trouble being alone (always like having people in your...

The Cry For Spiritual Fathers – A Word by Apostle Demontae Edmonds

Demontae Edmonds View Bio f4nations.com The Word of the Lord Hit Me Like a Brick Years ago I was sitting in a church service listening to my pastor preach a powerful message. In the midst of the message he spoke, “Some of you God will send you to other spiritual fathers and spiritual mothers who will help you along on your journey!” I had sat under this pastor’s ministry for 4 years and revered his ministry. He had been highly instrumental in helping me make a solid commitment to serve Christ. I had never imagined being under anyone else’s leadership. The Holy Spirit highlighted the one line that he spoke… “Some of you God will send you to other spiritual fathers and spiritual mothers who will help you along on your journey!” It was as if the words where a personal prophecy to me although it was spoken to the...

Listen! You Need this Vital Holy Spirit Activity – A Word by James W. Goll

A Word by James W. Goll View Bio Godencounters.com Around the globe I have taken an unofficial survey. I often ask the attendees, “What does the Holy Spirit do? What makes up the ministry of the Holy Spirit?” I always get great answers such as the Holy Spirit is the gift giver, sanctifier, bears fruit, brings conviction, speaks to us, intercedes through the believer, magnifies Jesus, releases dreams and visions and so much more. But one answer I have never heard from anyone anywhere. The Holy Spirit Listens! One of the ongoing activities of the Holy Spirit is listening and then communicating. The Holy Spirit speaks to us what He hears: “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to...

Prophetic Word: God is Aligning You for This New Season of Your Life – A Word by Doug Addison

Doug Addison View Bio DougAddison.com If you have felt like you are laboring and in a time of pain or suffering, then I have some good news for you. The difficult season many of us have been in will indeed pay off. Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. John 16:20–21 NIV Just as we are celebrating the birth of Christ this month, the Lord is birthing new things in you, bringing things that you have been called and created for. For many people, the very reason you came to Earth is now being revealed. These are the Books of Your Life Purpose. Even...

Prophecy – God is calling His people into a season and place of rest – A Word by Kathy DeGraw

Kathy Degraw View Bio kathydegrawministries.org I recently released some prophetic words on how 2020 is a time where the rubber meets the road and God is calling us to get serious about our walk with Him. He was further telling me recently that we need to trust Him. In order to trust Him and get serious about our walk with the Lord, we need to get in a place of rest. Rest is the word I am currently hearing from the Lord. What does the word rest mean? It means getting before our Father God and resting our souls and physical bodies. God wants us to slow down. He wants us to take moments of time where we sit quietly before Him and just focus and meditate on Him. This isn’t to be a time where we are firing off our prayer list and decreeing and declaring. This is to...

God Is Moving You From Empty To Overflow – A Word by Dr. Candice Smithyman

Candice Smithyman View Bio candicesmithyman.com Are you feeling depleted and completely spent? Are you reading this and thinking, “I don’t have anything left to give. I’m done – emotionally, physically, spiritually, financially!” Today, you are in the right place for God to do a miracle!  God is shifting things in the heavenly realm, and He wants me to tell you that He is getting ready to do a supernatural miracle and fill your bucket! He wants to release the heavenly vats of oil, grain, wine, gold, silver and water on you. In 1 Kings 17, Elijah had been receiving supernatural provision at the brook God led him to, but the brook dried up. The supernatural feeding from the birds stopped. And God sent the prophet to a widow woman in Zarephath. God  told him that it was time to move on and this woman would sustain him. Now, I don’t know about you,...
