"The Media Giants are Falling! A Call to Militant Intercession and for the Midterms" - Christy Johnston, Gold Coast, Australia

On a recent night, I had a vivid and urgent dream that I have been stirred in my spirit to share. I believe this dream is an intercessory key for us to stand together and contend, praying direct and targeted prayers for the United States of America, President Trump and the Midterm Elections. This dream is powerfully prophetic, pointing to a coming fall of the giants in the land.

In 1 Timothy 1, Paul exhorts his spiritual son Timothy to hold tight to the prophecies spoken over his life, and in verse 19 he writes, "With this encouragement use your prophecies as weapons as you wage spiritual warfare by faith and with a clean conscience. For there are many who reject these virtues and are now destitute of the true faith…" (TPT). I want to empower you with this truth: Prophecy is a weapon to wage war with.

The prophetic words spoken over our lives individually, and over our nations are a spiritual weapon to seize and decree until we see them take effect in the natural. We have the privilege of decreeing the Word of the Lord over situations and then watching His glory manifest through our partnership with His spoken Word. I encourage you to seize hold of this prophetic dream for the mountain of media, for the president of the US, and for the nations who have been under the siege of the media.

A Peculiar Ceremony

"Without the Spirit of the Lord, it is virtually impossible to determine what truth actually is, which is why it is imperative for Christians to be spending daily time in the Word with the Holy Spirit to truly be able to "see" what is taking place."

In the dream, I was standing on the second floor in the middle of the White House and I was praying. There were many people rushing to and fro all around me and they were hurriedly making their way outside to join a ceremony that was about to begin. From where I was standing, I was able to clearly see the south lawn where many people were gathered to take part. I then heard the sound of trumpets as they heralded in the beginning of this ceremony. The atmosphere was electric with excitement.

Intrigued, I slowly began making my way to the balcony that overlooked the lawn to observe the ceremony. (Having never been in the White House before, and as an Aussie who does not have a whole lot of knowledge pertaining to the White House, I had to look up which balcony I saw in my dream and found that it was the Truman Balcony.) As I looked over the Truman balcony, I watched on as the ceremony began and I recognized it was one of celebration. Strangely enough, though, I quickly realized what it was all about. Two very prominent talk-show hosts were front and center, and they were in prison uniforms with handcuffs tied to their hands. This ceremony was their sentencing.

At that moment, I heard a loud and audible voice booming from Heaven, "Let My justice prevail." I continued to watch this ceremony as a list of their convictions were read, detailing their many offenses and the sentence that was to follow. The odd thing was, this was a celebration, but as the sentencing went on for quite some time, my eyes were drawn to the two talk-show hosts and I began weeping for them. I suddenly felt the heart of the Father for them and in this dream, I began to intercede on their behalf.

As the long list of their offenses were continuing to be read, I felt excitement that their tyranny was now at a close, yet at the same time, I felt deep sadness for them as individuals. I was able to recognize that they had simply been puppets at the hand of the enemy and so I wept for them. They both looked my way and stared directly into my eyes, I could sense their grief over the sentence. I then watched as this ceremony came to a close and there was an uproarious celebration as the people cried out in one accord: "The moguls have fallen! The moguls have fallen!"

As I woke up and sought the Father for the interpretation of this dream, I immediately turned in Scripture to Isaiah 48:14-16 in the amplified. It says, "Assemble yourselves, all of you, and hear! Who among them [the gods and Chaldean astrologers] has foretold these things? The Lord has loved him [Cyrus of Persia]; he will do His pleasure and purpose on Babylon, and his arm will be against the Chaldeans. I, even I, have foretold it; yes, I have called him [Cyrus]; I have brought him, and the Lord shall make his way prosperous. Come near to me and listen to this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it happened, I was there..." (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)

The Media Mountain of Babylon

Immediately, I understood what it all meant. I want to first highlight above all else, there is a key in the first sentence of that Scripture. It is a charge of the Lord to us, the Church: "Assemble yourselves, ALL of you!" It is a charge of unity to come together as one and pray and listen to what the Father is speaking, putting aside our differences and agendas for the sake of His agenda. The Chaldean astrologers in the Scripture above represent the two talk show hosts, or the media mountain, which is also "Babylon." Note how the Father asks them, "Who among them has foretold these things?" Though the media "predicts" they cannot see what the Father is doing.

The fact that there were two talk show hosts in my dream conveys another insight. The number two in Hebrew means division and separation. Prophetically speaking, I believe this could signify that there will be a division between media giants that will cause their very downfall. A separation of the ranks, so to speak, will break their associations and agreements. And just as Jehoshaphat watched his enemies fight amongst themselves, we will begin to watch as their own confusion they have caused will descend within their walls.

In Isaiah 22:22, it says, "And the key of the House of David I will lay upon His shoulder; so He shall open, and non shall shut, and He shall shut, and non shall open." Up until now, the media have "perceived" that they have all power and authority – opening and closing doorways to whomever they choose – silencing whomever they wish, but this is about to be exposed and come crashing down as the Father is decreeing from the heavens, "Let My justice prevail!" Nothing and no one can stand in His way, nor silence Him and His people. The media does not hold the key of the house of David. The name Babylon literally means "confusion (by mixing)." The media today, as we well know, mixes a measure of "truth" with lies, bringing forth widespread confusion.

"I want to empower you with this truth: Prophecy is a weapon to wage war with."

Without the Spirit of the Lord, it is virtually impossible to determine what truth actually is, which is why it is imperative for Christians to be spending daily time in the Word with the Holy Spirit to truly be able to "see" what is taking place. These media moguls are possessed with the mindset of the enemy to rob truth and peace from the hearts of the nations, twisting mindsets with their lies, and then gripping them in a tight hold of possession. Remember though, we are not warring against them, but the principalities behind them. We need to remember who the true enemy is and take our battle up higher.

"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." (Ephesians 6:12)

Babylon Will Fall

Lance Wallnau first prophesied that President Trump would be as a modern-day Cyrus. The fact this dream took place in the White House is a significant sign that God is bringing forth justice in the presence of the People's House. I believe it also represents the mid-terms. The ceremony itself points to a "holding" of the fort, a celebration as the giants fall. The Father is cleansing the lies and bringing hidden darkness to light. His hand is upon Cyrus and there will be great celebration at the ceremony of the moguls' downfall – the midterms.

One other interesting point is that Cyrus of old was from Persia, which means, "That cuts or divides." It doesn't take much to recognize that Trump has been a threshing instrument to cut through the lies and to divide and separate that which has been secretly hidden and destroying the nation for too long. He was not anointed as a pastor, but as an instrument to cut and divide in order to expose.

Another interesting find in relation to the dream was what I discovered about the Truman balcony. It was a very prominent feature of my dream, and I found that in the same year of the balcony's establishment, a very prominent media outlet was also established. As I was standing on the balcony looking down at the sentencing, it points to our "standing" on victory over the enemy's lies and establishments.

Sound the Trumpets

The trumpets in my dream heralded the beginning of this ceremony of the sentence, the mid-terms. I believe the sound of the trumpets represents the Body of Christ releasing this very proclamation of prophecy: "Let the justice of our God prevail. The moguls are about to fall. Babylon will fall." It is a sound of EVERY voice arising together in unity and shouting that our God will prevail. Our God is above every other name! (Photo via Unsplash)

I prophesy that we are going to witness the effects of Zechariah 4:6 where it says, "So He said to me, 'This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit," says the LORD Almighty.'" The Father's justice will prevail. The giants will fall by the strength and power of His Spirit. I believe the Holy Spirit is inviting us in this unique time in history to partner with His proclamation and by faith, take back the nations who have been under the tyranny of confusion. I also feel strongly that it is our responsibility to pray and intercede for President Trump because what happens to America spreads globally.

We also need to be praying on behalf of the people in the media and within governmental ranks that the enemy is manipulating for his benefit. God's heart is for them, just as much as His heart burns for you and I, and He desires to see them freed from the chains of the enemy and restored to His heart. Will you join me in standing in agreement? Will you decree with me, "Let the justice of our God prevail!" Let our battle cries be heard in the heavens as our united shouts of decrees unleash the forces of Heaven to wage war on our behalf.

Prayer Strategies and Keys for Militant Intercession:

1. Pray that any hidden agendas within the media would be exposed (Daniel 2:22).

2. Decree justice over the United States, the president and over the nations.

3. Use this prophecy and others as your weapons (1 Timothy 1:19 and pray Psalm 58).

4. Pray daily protection over President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and their families (Psalm 91).

5. Fast as the Holy Spirit leads you.

6. UNITE with other Christians, refrain from criticizing with your words.

7. Pray for the lies and confusion of the media to be exposed and torn down (Isaiah 25:7). (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Find Out What the Thief Wants to Steal from You!" Ryan Johnson, Fort Payne, Alabama


"So Jesus said to them again, 'Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.'" (John 10:7-10 NASB)

The Seed

Many of us are very familiar with this passage of Scripture and have quoted verse 10 multiple times, yet, we often find ourselves at a loss when the enemy attacks. Have we ever thought about what the enemy is really after? I mean, we know the basis is that he comes to steal, kill and destroy. But, what exactly is he trying to steal, kill and destroy?

Now, there are a multitude of answers we could easily give that could satisfy us...but what if there is an actual root to the premise? Let's think of it this way: An apple tree produces an abundance of apples, and yet it began with a seed. The apples differ in sizes and even in ranges of color. There may be 100 plus apples on a single tree, but it first began as a seed. With that in mind, we can acknowledge that there is an abundance of different things that the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy. But what is the seed (an/or root) of the strategy of the enemy?

Master of Deception

Satan often comes in a way that we least expect, simply because we think he is after something else. We can have the tendency to look at outward appearances, and thus determine that the enemy would naturally go after these things. For example, we might look at a wealthy individual and begin to think that the enemy would try and steal their wealth, but in reality, the enemy may not go after the monetary value and instead go after their marriage and/or their children. When we see someone who has a strong charisma we may begin to assume that the enemy would go after their voice, but in reality the enemy has a different "behind the scenes" attack. Satan is a master of deception.

The Philistine's Strategy

Let me ask you this: What was Delilah after concerning Samson? From an outside perspective, many might say that she was after the secret of his strength. Samson was a huge threat to the Philistines and they needed to know his secret so that they could trap him in weakness in order to defeat him. This might sound like the full explanation, but truthfully that's not what they were ultimately after. We can find the root to the Philistine's ultimate strategy here in Judges:

"When Delilah saw that he had told her all that was in his heart, she sent and called the lords of the Philistines, saying, 'Come up once more, for he has told me all that is in his heart.' Then the lords of the Philistines came up to her and brought the money in their hands. She made him sleep on her knees, and called for a man and had him shave off the seven locks of his hair. Then she began to afflict him, and his strength left him. She said, 'The Philistines are upon you, Samson!' And he awoke from his sleep and said, 'I will go out as at other times and shake myself free.' But he did not know that the Lord had departed from him. Then the Philistines seized him and gouged out his eyes; and they brought him down to Gaza and bound him with bronze chains, and he was a grinder in the prison. However, the hair of his head began to grow again after it was shaved off." (Judges 16:18-22)

It's About Your Vision

The strength of Samson was never the end goal. It was his vision. The enemy of Samson knew that even if they discovered his secret, Samson would regain his strength. However, if they took away the vision of Samson it would automatically and permanently limit his strength. Satan isn't just after what makes you strong — he is after your vision!

"Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained, but happy is he who keeps the law." (Proverbs 29:18 NASB)

"If people can't see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; but when they attend to what He reveals, they are most blessed." (Proverbs 29:18 MSG)

If the enemy is successful in attacking your (spiritual) vision, then you will easily find yourself not being able to see and/or recognize what God is doing. You will make a mess of things trying to overcompensate what you believe must be done in order to walk in righteousness. If your spiritual vision is removed, you will end up in a similar situation as Samson.

When Samson could not see (although he had his strength), he had to get a young boy to walk him around and position him against the pillars. This happened after the fact that Samson had already become a spectacle of the enemy as they were entertained by his lack of vision. Let that one sink in for a moment: Samson, the strongest man on the planet, had to physically depend on a child.

How often do we (when our spiritual vision is gone) link ourselves to those weaker than ourselves? Instead of "being" and "doing" what we are called to, we can find ourselves linking hands with those who may not be matured in Christ. Granted, they may help us get into position, but as a son of God we are called to mature, to guide and help those less mature (not other way around).

When our vision is out of whack it is easy to embrace offense, hatred, anger, bitterness, etc. Most of these things can simply be the result of our actions when we lose our vision, if the first thing we do is to run to the immature and link hands. Then the immature become our (spiritual eyes) vision. Once the enemy steals your vision, he then tries to kill your purpose and destroy your destiny. Yes, Samson killed many that day, but what could he have accomplished had he retained his vision? Better yet, what can you accomplish if you maintain the spiritual vision God has given you?

"This is a New Day of Authority and Power" Elaine Tavolacci, Staten Island, NY


Not Only in Word, but in Power

"For the Kingdom of God is not in word but in power." (1 Corinthians 4:20)

We are living in a season of shifting and shaking; experiencing many changes worldwide as well as in our personal lives and ministries. To some people it appears as if the darkness is dominating this world, but then there are those Believers who recognize that small cloud the size of a man's hand that is rising out of the sea. They know that the days ahead will be glorious times of demonstration of the power of the Holy Spirit, just as they had experienced in the book of Acts.

The Lord wants to use every one of us in extraordinary ways; not in word only, but in manifestation of His power through healing, miracles, signs and wonders.

Jesus said in His Word: "And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover" (Mark 16:17-18). The glory of the Lord is going to shake many ministries who operate in godliness, but deny the full power of the Spirit.

In the Book of 1 Corinthians Chapter 2, Paul told the Corinthian Church that he did not come with eloquence of speech or carnal persuasiveness, but with the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. Paul did not speak mere words of man, but he ministered through demonstration, with miracles, signs and wonders following. When Paul prayed for people they were healed, set free, delivered, and even the dead were raised. He ministered in authority and boldness declaring to the people that their faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

"And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God." (1 Corinthians 2:4-5)

You Are the Chosen Generation—Walk in His Authority!

1 Corinthians 2:9-10, "But as it is written: 'Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.' But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God."

The Lord says: "This is a new day. You are the generation who I have chosen to walk in My authority, power and demonstration of My Kingdom on this earth. I am about to release My glory on this earth as it is in Heaven. You have been created for miracles, signs and wonders. I am looking for those who will speak to the mountains, rather than circle the mountains repeatedly.

"I am looking for those who will run the race with endurance and stand strong when the winds and waves of adversity arise. They will be those who will walk on water rather than allowing the waves to overtake them. They are those who will release My light into areas of darkness, and the desire of the wicked will perish as they come into the light. They will drive out the inhabitants of the land as My glory arises within them, comes upon them and moves through them.

"As you allow My Word to sustain you, you will be strengthened beyond your natural abilities. You will no longer be limited in your ways of thinking. You will no longer look to the wisdom of man, but you will understand the truth of My Word. As you trust Me, you will no longer be confused by diverse doctrines.

"Just as Paul threw the viper off into the fire and was unharmed, you also have the authority to throw the vipers off that try to attach themselves to you. You are not mere men and women, but you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation who will release others out of the kingdom of darkness into My marvelous light. As My light is released, the darkness will instantly diminish. This is the day of the demonstration of My glory. This is the divine plan and purpose that I have for you in this season," says the Lord.

Romans 8:19, "For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God."

"5779: The Sword of Favor and Vengeance" Anita Alexander, Gold Coast, Australia

"For the Lord has a day of vengeance, a year of recompense, for the cause of Zion." (Isaiah 34:8)

9/9/18: Aren't those interesting numbers that this Rosh Hashanah falls on? It is the year of 5779 and it landed on the evening of the 9th day of the 9th month of the year 2018 (18 being double 9). So we have 4x9 in the date alone, and 5x9s including the Hebraic year! This is no coincidence.

Dream of 999 and 4:14

In early June 2018, I had a dream regarding the number 9. I saw 999 repeatedly throughout my dream, and as the number 9 kept showing up I said in my dream, "This is recompense, reconciliation and redemption." In the same dream, I repeatedly saw 4:14 alongside 999. In the dream I was saying, "This is now the time of Esther." I knew this meant Esther 4:14.

"Those who have gone through the seasons of purification, the seasons of fire, testings and trials and come out purified are now being beautified with the Lord's fragrance of favor in order to be positioned for those assignments of justice."

"For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father's house will perish. And who knows but that YOU HAVE COME TO THE KINGDOM FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS AND FOR THIS VERY OCCASION?" (AMPC emphasis mine)

Interpretation: The Biblical meaning of the number 9 is "finality" or the "fullness" of God. The finality of God comes with a connotation of justice and judgment. We see that Jesus died on the Cross on the 9th hour of the day. It was FINISHED. This sacrifice was finalized on the 9th hour and what followed was redemption, reconciliation and recompense for all those who would receive His sacrifice, both Jew and Gentile alike.

We also see that there are 9 gifts of the Spirit and 9 fruits of the Spirit, which symbolize the "fullness" of God.

The Positioning of the Government of Esther

I have literally been seeing 4:14 EVERYWHERE I go lately – specially within these last two weeks leading up to Rosh Hashanah.

The Lord began to remind me of my dream back in June and spoke to my heart saying, "This new Hebraic year 5779 is the year where I am positioning My beloved as in Esther 4:14 – for such a time as this – to execute My justice in this season. I am bringing a finality to the cause of the enemy and turnaround for My people. Through this Esther government, the plans of the enemy will be exposed on many levels in the seven mountains of society. Justice and finality will be brought as the Lord's people lift up their voices and keep not silent. For with much given much is required, and with promotion comes responsibility."

This is Not the Time to Be Silent!

Notice in Esther 4:14 Mordecai is beseeching Esther to NOT KEEP SILENT. This is the time when the voice of the Lord's beloved needs to be heard. As she is heard, this is the time where justice, recompense and redemption will come. This is not the time for God's people to retreat in the fear of what man can do to them! No, this is the time to be like Esther and say "...If I perish I perish"(Esther 4:16), and go forth in the FEAR OF THE LORD and see a mighty deliverance come (see Psalm 34:7).

As the Lord's people choose to not sit passively by in the council of the ungodly and repent for doing so (if that has been the case), but speak up and stand up instead of sitting where the scorners are (see Psalm 1), we will begin to see divine turnarounds, recompenses, restitution and unprecedented victories of advancement for the Kingdom of Heaven. (Photo via Unsplash)

The Lord is positioning His people in this hour to be a voice into darkness and bring a finality to the wicked, unjust plans of HAMAN!

Purification, Beautification, Presentation, and Demonstration

As Esther went through a purification and beautification process before she was presented before the king (Esther 2:12), there are those who have been through a preparation season of purification and are now being beautified with the fragrance and favor of the Lord that will cause them to be positioned in this next season for demonstration. Their preparation has come to its fullness (the meaning of the number 9) and now is the time for their positioning to demonstrate the Kingdom for such a time as this.

The Season of Favor and Justice

Recently one Monday night, in a time of intercession, I had a vision of the Lord spraying perfume all around Esther, representing His prepared people. I then saw a two-edged sword being wielded and the Lord gave it to His people to wield in this season. I then heard Him say, "This is a sword of FAVOR and VENGEANCE. For you will need favor in order to execute My righteous vengeance on the enemy in this season."

I knew this was a symbolic picture of His Bride being Esther. The fragrance and perfume represents His anointing to adorn her with favor to be positioned in the place she needs to be – to do the job and fulfill the assignment she needs to in this season of justice. I have also been seeing 007 (secret agent assignments) in repeated fashion lately, reminding me this is the season of positioning for the execution of those assignments. The Lord is giving new assignments of justice in this season and the Lord is positioning His beloved to fulfill and execute those assignments.

Esther's assignment, in a nutshell, was an assignment of justice to expose the evil plan of Haman to annihilate her, people the Jews, and bring about a divine turnaround. In this turnaround her people were given the right to defend themselves! She needed the favor of God to be chosen as queen in order for her assignment to be fulfilled. So it is in this season. Those who have gone through the seasons of purification, the seasons of fire, testings and trials and come out purified, are now being beautified with the Lord's fragrance of favor in order to be positioned for those assignments of justice.

"This sacrifice was finalized on the 9th hour and what followed was redemption, reconciliation and recompense for all those who would receive His sacrifice, both Jew and Gentile alike."

We see Esther's assignment brought a reversal of a decree of death to the Jews to a decree of preserving their lives. It is very interesting to note that from the time of the new decree that Mordecai wrote on the king's behalf (Esther 8:11), it was 9 months the Jews had to prepare themselves for conflict. Again we see that number 9 in relation to justice and divine turnaround (see Esther 8:9,12).

The Overturning of the Decree of Abortion

One of the assignments of justice the Lord is giving out to certain ones in this season is in the family mountain, specifically regarding the laws of abortion. I see a William Wilberforce anointing coming on many in this season. Just as William was in a position of government to speak up for those slaves who couldn't speak for themselves, so the Lord, in this season, is positioning many in more strategic, effective positions to speak up for unborn babies who have no voice for their own existence. Just as the decree in Esther went forth in Esther 8:11 for the Jewish people to have the right to defend their own lives, there will be a new decree that will go forth which will overturn the evil decree of death. This NEW DECREE WILL STATE THAT UNBORN BABIES HAVE THE RIGHT TO EXIST.

Season of Unprecedented Divine Appointments for Divine Turnarounds

We will see many unprecedented turnarounds in this season as the Lord orchestrates, by His Spirit, a series of divine appointments and connections. Place a demand upon the anointing in this season. Ask for your footsteps to be ordered by Him to bring you into positions of favor that are not possible for you in your own efforts. (Photo via Pixabay)

If we look closely at the book of Esther we will realize this is a book of divine turnarounds. First we see a mass display of deceit, trickery, conceit, jealousy and acts of threatened violence and murder by Haman. Then after Esther steps up to her God-given assignment we see the hand of God move and not only overturn a death decree on behalf of the Jewish people, but justice, recompense and honor is brought to Mordecai while the pride of his enemy Haman is brought to destruction and ruin.

This is this season! In this year 5779 we will begin to see the unlocking of unprecedented turnarounds, vindication, honor, recompense, reconciliation, and redemption as the Lord positions His people in favor to speak up for the cause of righteousness to execute finality by overruling the wicked plans and decrees of the enemy and causing justice to prevail.

"A Time of Birthed Destiny - You Waited for God's Best!" Michael Russo, Rochester, NY

Just prior to my arrival in Macedonia for our international Christian leadership conferences, an angel of the Lord appeared to me in a prophetic experience. Up to this point, I had been in a year of seeking, struggling and waiting on what I had to trust was God's better direction concerning His plan over my life.

I laid down to seek rest in the Lord, and I found myself in a vision waking up in the southern European region, where an angel of the Lord appeared in the brilliance of God's light and love. As he began to speak, the atmosphere shifted into light with his words following a healing smile. In this vision, I saw leaders rising and being put into position to honor God, to bring justice and help to Israel, as well as to others around the globe.

While the angel spoke and the Holy Spirit moved over me, I noticed others around me who were obviously leaders and laity of various Christian denominations, who are predominant in the eastern and southern part of European nations, as well as the Middle East. While in the anointing of God's presence and message, the Spirit of the Lord indicated to me that God's Word was sent on behalf of what Father God had predestined for His people.

Attached to this message, delivered by the angel, was a new direction that would begin to transform my whole walk and ministry into all that has been predestined and paid for by Jesus Christ. This new ministry is not just for me, but also the people highlighted to me in the vision above, as well as others around the globe.

As God's messenger spoke, I could see that the people there were unable to fully hear or understand this visitation, though everyone could sense that something was happening. I realized I was to translate and tell them what was being said—both to those present in the vision and to anyone who reads this. I knew this would activate their faith to respond. This was one of many similar announcements to all the nations of the world that the Lord Himself is now making. (Photo via Stock Free)

A Time of Birthed Destiny - You Waited for the Best!

"In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will..."(Ephesians 1:11)

"Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified." (Romans 8:30)

Though there was a long wait for many of you, be encouraged that now is the appointed time for God's will concerning birthing and destiny. Many shall now emerge as sons and daughters, who've been stretched and disciplined while waiting upon God's timing for "the best" in their destiny.

"For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many nobles are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence." (1 Corinthians 1:26-29) (See Also Jeremiah 9:23.)

"Now is the time of great visitation."

Many who will now arise in all spheres of influence, are those who have believed they have no strong value or talent, or have believed they have failed. Though many have believed they have failed, it was actually God's success working in their lives. The Lord wore them out to the point that they could learn dependence upon Him and completely surrender. He does this so that God's people can learn the difference between their own strengths and ways, and those of God's. These are the ones who have carried measures of favor and visitation, but have been held back for God's best.

Joseph Kept His Vision Experiences

Though Joseph experienced dreams and visions, he had to wait and hold them silent in his heart until God's time and workmanship of heart were ready. When God's time and season came about, Joseph would have the proper nature and character to understand and administer what he was shown. Many who have received dreams, visions and encounters throughout their lives will now be birthed into their destiny; they have matured while coming to a full understanding of what God has desired.

Newness of understanding and awareness of God's nature, love, and ways shall further change and transform the face of what we have perceived as Christianity and the Good News. The first shall now be last and the last shall now be first!

Revival, Restoration and Renewal

Revival, restoration and renewal will now break out in four areas of many societies. Isaiah 60:2 declares: "...Darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee."

Four Areas of Restoration

1) POLITICAL: New leaders like Cyrus in the 45th chapter of Isaiah are already taking their place. These include leaders raised by the Lord who love and value honesty, empowering others, as well as those who value what is right even above their personal livelihood. These new leaders will move in integrity and accountability no matter the personal cost of power, rank and file (leaders in all administrative levels). These leaders will not do it for reward or for price, but out of true care and conviction.

The prisoners (of man's limitations) of nations shall come and line up behind a true interpretation of leadership as they are set free by the nature of righteous governing. They shall be taught and align with them. Many other leaders and peoples shall gnash at the light within emerging new leadership because of the ease of sudden success and breakthrough in political arenas.

The new leaders will bring fresh, integral innovation and international alliances. New and reformed laws will be enacted that are meant to better serve the public in equality and without partiality, alongside the demand for new integral levels of administrative performance and accountability.

"The first shall now be last and the last shall now be first!"

2) ECONOMIC: Multinational revivals, healing and restoration will rise in innovative industries with thousands upon thousands of new jobs flowing like rivers into newly exalted nations. This will add fresh life and growth to vulnerable and broken nations like Macedonia, Bulgaria and Albania, along with many African nations and other nations around the world. Soon, some of the southern European nations will heal and form greater relations and dependencies upon one another while aligning with Israel. A great international coalition is already beginning that will act as a type of Joseph to the nations being humbled and shifted into leanness.

3) RELIGIOUS: Great revival, restoration, and a renewed direction will begin within traditional churches and former movements, as well as what remains from the patriarchs of faith and their legacies. Even other religions that have some claim to the God of Abraham shall be greatly influenced and affected by what happens as God shows up on the international scene. Many in Christian church leadership, as well as many others who believe in Jesus, will now rise and be restored in a renewed and fuller light. Countless numbers of those who love the Lord but have been in exile shall return with great weeping and praises as a truer faith and accountability is restored in the Body of Christ Jesus. Divisions shall start ceasing as restoration among many brethren begins. A renewed unity in ONE Holy Spirit will flow like oil, bringing healing to the hardened.

4) SOCIAL: Restoration of families and marriages will break out and spread like the waters of a broken dam. Children will be restored to their parents and parents to their children; rebellion and discontent will start vanishing as years of brokenness, confusion, and smashed identities are healed and restored. Soon, many who left their homes and nations will return with both good tidings and gifts in their hands. These shall bring their faith, wealth, and education back to invest in their own households and countrymen.

The many years of rebellion, injustice, and corruption will be washed away from the soil and hearts of men, women, and children in their lands. Racism and division will fade from cities and nations of light as forgiveness, grace and justice address the many years of curses and death. The life of Christ shall speak once again as the Spirit of the Lord leads the way to the eternal purposes and protection of the nations who revere God.

"And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse." (Malachi 4:6)

"'They shall be Mine,' says the LORD of hosts, 'On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.' Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him." (Malachi 3:17-18)

Plenty in Famine

"'Behold, the days are coming,' says the Lord GOD, 'That I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD. They shall wander from sea to sea. And from north to east, they shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the LORD, but shall not find it. In that day the fair virgins and strong young men shall faint from thirst. Those who swear by the sin of Samaria who say, "As your god lives, O Dan!" And, "As the way of Beersheba lives!" They shall fall and never rise again.'" (Amos 8:11-14) (Photo via Pixabay)

Even as greater darkness and deception in this world comes, God has reserved and will restore nations and leaders who shall rise and be like Joseph to the nations in great spiritual darkness, famine and want. God has left a blessing for nations truly hungry and thirsty for righteousness!

Now is the time of great visitation. It is the Lord's will that every man know that He is in every detail and that He is good. Without faith it is impossible to please God. This is a time to remember that prophecy is given to help build-up, encourage and give hope concerning what is in God's heart and will. Let us not despise prophecies and may we never despise small beginnings. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"5779: A Marker Year - God's Goodness will be Revealed" Kathi Pelton, Portland, OR


A Womb Pregnant with God's Secrets and Goodness

The Lord spoke to me that this Jewish New Year (5779), which began September 9th at sundown, is a "chamber room" or "womb." I saw these chambers like a womb, where what has been conceived in the heart of God is growing within His Bride's body. Within this "chamber" or "womb" His secrets and goodness will be revealed to those who yielded to the intimacy and oneness that He invited His Bride into throughout the previous year. He shares His secrets with those who walk in the fear of the Lord and who have been found trustworthy through intimacy.

God's hidden goodness will be revealed to those who seek Him. Within the limitless boundaries of His goodness there is wisdom and understanding. Within the revelation of His goodness there is healing and strength. Within the experience of His goodness there is refreshing and restoration. Within the womb of His goodness there is great hope and new life.

"Yet I am confident I will see the LORD's goodness while I am here in the land of the living." (Psalm 27:13)

A Year of Plundering the Spoils from the Enemy's Camp

In August the Lord highlighted Isaiah 8 to me. I read of a scroll where the Hebrew words "Maher-shalal-hash-baz" were written upon it meaning, "making speed to the spoil" or "he hastens to the prey." I believe that this will be a year where we will see the Lord plunder the enemy's camp and He will give the spoils to those who will steward the resources with purity and righteousness. They will not touch what the Lord says, "Do not touch," but they will receive the plunder that the Lord takes for the righteous. His Bride will not walk in the fear of man but she will walk in the fear of the Lord, which is the womb of Psalm 91 (the place of abiding).

"The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy, He is the one you are to fear, He is the one you are to dread." (Isaiah 8:13)

Coming in Like a Flood

Many plans and strategies of the enemy will be nullified and the Lord will come in like a flood to raise up His glorious standard against him. Jesus will partner with His Bride who is one with Him and carries His zeal to see His Kingdom come on Earth as it is in Heaven. His fierce and jealous love will judge that which is unholy in order to plunder what has been captured and held captive by demonic forces.

"Devise your strategy, but it will be thwarted; propose your plan, but it will not stand, for God is with us." (Isaiah 8:10)

The oneness and unity has conceived a generation that will bring forth what all creation has been groaning for.

"Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will reveal to us later. For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who His children really are." (Romans 8:18-19)

The "Marker Year"

I believe that this is a "marker year" where we will see a generation birthed that walks in the goodness of God and the fear of the Lord; fully surrendered to the Captain of the Lord of Hosts. This generation will be alert and awake to hear and respond when the Lord calls to them. They will be humble, teachable, and submitted to His voice. They will understand intimacy which will cause them to walk in authority. They will be intimately acquainted with His goodness and know the sound of His voice that thunders like the shofar. They were conceived in intimacy and they are growing in the womb of surrender. Like Mary, they are carried by the ones who have said, "Let it be to me according to your word" (Luke 1:38).

A Revealing of What We have Conceived in the Spirit

Lastly, I saw a vision of a married couple receiving a sonogram for a baby that they had conceived. Together they saw the baby's features and the gender was revealed. I believe this year will be a year that we will be shown what we have conceived together with our Bridegroom and within our spiritual wombs.

A Healing of Identity

It is interesting to me that there is such a battle over "gender" and identity in the world today and at the same time, most couples celebrate pregnancies through "gender reveal parties." It's quite a contrast. God is about to touch this issue in ways that only He can. He will heal identity issues in many and break the confusion that has sent so many lives into upheaval. There will be a generation that restores true identity and carries a revelation of the goodness of our God to the lost.

We welcome this new year and cross fully over the threshold today into the place where His secrets are shared, His goodness is experienced, and true identity is revealed. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"September will be a Month of Divine Supernatural Favor" Kyle T. Miller, Little Rock, AR

In my meditation recently, the Lord spoke to me and said, "September will be a month of divine, supernatural favor for My people. Tell My people that they will need to receive this favor for the season ahead because great advancement is coming." In the Hebrew, one of the words for favor is "ratson" which means: pleasure, delight, favor, goodwill, acceptance, and will. It comes from the root word "ratsah" which means: to be pleased with, accept favorably.

So God is prophetically saying to us that He wants to give us over-generous, preferential treatment, and show us kindness beyond what is due or even usual for us!

The Story of Ruth is an Example of God's Favor in Action

"God is extending His favor to you in this season. You will overcome the obstacles of the last season and shift into a season of joy and abundance!"

The Book of Ruth demonstrates how God's favor can transition us from one of lack and poverty to blessings and prosperity. After her husband and brother-in-law's death, Ruth, the Moabite, decides to follow her mother-in-law Naomi, from Moab back to her home in Judah. Naomi, believing that Ruth and her sister Oprah will have a better chance at survival by moving back in with their families there in Moab, admonishes her daughters-in-law to stay in Moab. Oprah agrees to stay, however, Ruth refuses to stay, believing it is her mission to look after and take care of her widowed mother-in-law. Ruth makes this power declaration of dedication:

"...Wherever you go, I will go; and wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, if anything but death parts you and me." (Ruth 1:16-17).

Ruth is a human example of God's covenant with us. Somewhat akin to the covenant that God makes with Abraham in Genesis 12, Ruth makes a pact with Naomi that she will adopt Naomi's culture entirely to ensure that her mother-in-law is taken care of. This is so significant when you consider the life of a widow in Biblical times. Unlike today, in Biblical times if you were a widow, you were considered to be damaged goods. Men typically did not marry widows and the culture of that day did not allow single women to go out and get jobs. Widows had no way of making a living for themselves. This is why the Bible admonished people of that day to take care of widows (see Psalm 68:5; Exodus 22:22-23).

After their husbands died, widows would go back home to live with their families. So, when Ruth makes the declaration that she is going to follow Naomi back to her home in order to care for her as her mother-in-law, this a perfect example of selflessness. By making this declaration, Ruth is saying that she plans to deny herself the opportunity to make a life for herself by making life better for her mother-in-law. This is an example of what the Scripture means when it says (Photo via Pixabay):

"This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you." (John 15:12-14)

The word "life" in this Scripture is from the Greek word "psuche'" which means: the soul or the seat of the feelings, desires, affections, aversions (our heart, soul etc.). This Scripture is saying that Jesus demonstrated perfect love by laying down His own desires, agenda and what He may have wanted to do for what was in the best interests of us, His friends.

Ruth and Naomi Receive Supernatural Favor for Supernatural Provision

By leaving her family, in what may seem to be her only opportunity to be provided for, Ruth makes a major sacrifice. Ruth decides to put the needs of her mother-in-law above her own needs. This sacrifice, though, puts Ruth in the perfect position to make a divine contact with someone who literally changes her life forever.

"So God is prophetically saying to us that He wants to give us over-generous, preferential treatment and show us kindness beyond what is due or even usual for us!"

When Ruth and Naomi arrive in Judah they realize that they need financial provision so that they can eat. It was harvest time, so Ruth decided to go to Boaz's farm. Boaz was a very rich farmer in town. Ruth would go to Boaz's farm every day to pick up the extras of what was harvested. God gave Ruth so much favor with Boaz, that he began to ask his workers to leave more food behind for Ruth and Naomi. Boaz eventually falls in love with Ruth and they get married. In a relatively short period of time, Ruth goes from being a poor widow to being the wife of one of the richest men in Judah! God gave Ruth a supernatural favor that shifted her from poverty to prosperity.

What God is Saying to YOU in This Season

God is extending His favor to you in this season. You will overcome the obstacles of the last season and shift into a season of joy and abundance! God is setting you up for your breakthrough by allowing you to go through tests of obedience, like Ruth. The Holy Spirit is telling me that many of you who are reading this article have made sacrifices, like Ruth, where you opted to do things that helped others. Yet, it was in helping others that caused you to personally lose things.

God wants you to know that you are not forgotten. He sees everything that you have given up personally for others. You are not forgotten. Ruth made a great sacrifice for Naomi. However, this act of sacrifice qualified her for an amazing blessing. God is saying to you that the sacrifices you made in the last season have now qualified you for the most amazing blessings — so much blessing that you will be completely amazed!

God is Encompassing YOU with Favor

Whenever the Lord gives me a word for the Body of Christ, I always ask that He gives me a Scripture that supports what I think I am hearing. I like to confirm the prophetic-Rhema word with His Scripture (logos) to ensure that what I am hearing is from Him. The Scripture the Lord gave me as a confirmation that this is a season of favor is in Psalm 5:11-12.

"But let all those that put their trust in Thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love Thy name be joyful in thee. For Thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favor wilt Thou compass him as with a shield." (Photo via Pixabay)

This Scripture states that the favor of God is going to be with us so strongly in this season that God is literally going to surround us with favor, like a shield. This means that no matter what the enemy does to try and sabotage God's plans in our lives, it won't prosper because God's favor will compass us as a shield!

A Prayer to Release Supernatural Favor

Pray this with me: Heavenly Father, You have said that this is the season that You are giving me supernatural favor. You have said that You are now rewarding me for all of the sacrifices I have made to make other people's lives better. So Lord, just like Ruth, I receive Your supernatural favor. I thank You that You are compassing me with favor as a shield. I receive Your divine instruction to do what is needed to manifest this favor in my life. In Jesus' name, amen!
