You Are Zion
You are Zion, and you are My Holy Mount
To you it has been given to drink from My Fount
Embattled upon every side, girded with strength, you have learned to abide
Faith and wisdom have come side by side, signaling the turning of the tide
Between the living and the dead, paths familiar, you shall now tread
Ancient doors revealed, once formerly sealed, known by the Spirit and not the head
Steps realigned with the Divine, blueprints carried to the front line
Great stirring among the camps below, lighting of lamps called to shine
Thunders sounding, hoofs a pounding, gathering ranks for Life's great flow
Eternal Purposes hidden, horses not yet ridden, pages ready to now show
Markers being placed by unseen hands, lines once drawn now expand
Scales unbalanced and misused among man, sleeping giants arise across the land
Paths crossing as I burn, images and idols taking their turn
Separations disappear, awakened minds and hearts do learn
Streams appearing in the wilderness of men
Calling the hungry and the thirsty to enter in
Generations meet, prophecies long spoken greet
Heaven and earth joined, destinies unroll as a great sheet
My Fountain flowing, knowledge of My Glory growing
Battles escalate as I am showing, but you must rise up and get going
Time for you has stood still, you have walked upon My Hill
Partaking of Me has been your destiny, but there is more to be known of My Will
Strengthen the brethren, you are My Ranks that will stand shoulder to shoulder
You are My Rock, My House that will only grow wiser and bolder
For this purpose you were born, you are Zion, no longer scorned
Stations shall change as I rearrange, but you have been given your horn
Maturity of the Times, signal the dawning of new earthly signs
Nations realign as war sounds its cry, but all shall fit My earthly Design
18For you have not come [as did the Israelites in the wilderness] to a [material] mountain that can be touched, [a mountain] that is ablaze with fire, and to gloom and darkness and a raging storm, 19And to the blast of a trumpet and a voice whose words make the listeners beg that nothing more be said to them. 20For they could not bear the command that was given: If even a wild animal touches the mountain, it shall be stoned to death. 21In fact, so awful and terrifying was the [phenomenal] sight that Moses said, I am terrified (aghast and trembling with fear). 22But rather, you have come to Mount Zion, even to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to countless multitudes of angels in festal gathering, 23And to the church (assembly) of the Firstborn who are registered [as citizens] in heaven, and to the God Who is Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous (the redeemed in heaven) who have been made perfect, 24And to Jesus, the Mediator (Go-between, Agent) of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood which speaks [of mercy], a better and nobler and more gracious message than the blood of Abel [which cried out for vengeance]. 25So see to it that you do not reject Him or refuse to listen to and heed Him Who is speaking [to you now]. For if they [the Israelites] did not escape when they refused to listen and heed Him Who warned and divinely instructed them [here] on earth [revealing with heavenly warnings His will], how much less shall we escape if we reject and turn our backs on Him Who cautions and admonishes [us] from heaven? 26Then [at Mount Sinai] His voice shook the earth, but now He has given a promise: Yet once more I will shake and make tremble not only the earth but also the [starry] heavens. 27Now this expression, Yet once more, indicates the final removal and transformation of all [that can be] shaken--that is, of that which has been created--in order that what cannot be shaken may remain and continue. 28Let us therefore, receiving a kingdom that is firm and stable and cannot be shaken, offer to God pleasing service and acceptable worship, with modesty and pious care and godly fear and awe; 29For our God [is indeed] a consuming fire.

I Am Removing The Darkness That Has Been Cast Over You
I am removing the darkness that has been cast over you. In the earth there is darkness, but in My presence there is Light. The more that you come into My Presence, the more of the darkness and the influences of the darkness that I can remove from you. There are many influences that you encounter daily just because you live in this world, but there are many also still rooted in your soul that also hinder your progress on a daily basis. I have been drawing you closer to Me so that I can remove everything, so that you can live a fuller life through Me. I do not want you to battle in your thoughts anymore, nor do I want you to succumb to the inner turmoil's that still grip you periodically when you encounter a tough situation. I want you to be firmly fixed and stable within your soul in all situations, good or bad. I want you to be full of My Light continuously within your soul. I want you to also maintain that light and not allow the worldly influences or the demonic influences to enter your soul via dark thoughts anymore. You are the guardian of your soul and it is time for you to rise up and gain the victory over these areas once and for all. I want you to be prosperous in your soul as well as in your daily walk.
Learn even more of Me. As you spend time with Me, I will show you how these things influence you and I will teach you what to do in each and every case. For My Spirit will guide you in all things that would come your way. There are many things that the enemy has planned to subvert believers in the days ahead, and one of them is in the area of dark thoughts, and increased oppressions of the soul. I will reveal even more of these things to you as you sit with Me. I will reveal every strategy to you so that you can walk through them untouched and also with increased joy and effectiveness in the days ahead. For I am revealing divine strategies in this hour to those who will take the time to meet with Me. There is much that can be apprehended by you in the days ahead, but you will only do so if you continuously draw from Me throughout your day.
As My Government increases now more fully in the earth, more and more will be exposed and even greater physical, spiritual, and emotional wars and turmoil's will be the result. If you do not know how to handle all of the turmoil's properly when they come, then you will be caught up in them too. This is why I am showing this to you now. I want you to walk in My Peace even while walking through the earthly battlefield. For this is a season of war as I have shown you, but it is also the Day of My Glory that shall be known throughout the earth as well. My Government shall increase,\ as I am now walking in My People, and I will bring forth right thinking, right actions, and right walking as you embrace Me in humility and obedience.
I have come to bring forth Life in My People, and My Life will swallow up all of the death that is at work within you, that is operating around you and through you, if you will walk with Me, and do as I teach you to do. I am here to set My People free. I am here to bring liberty to the body, to the minds, and to the spirits of men, if they will let Me fully in. It is time to walk in the higher levels of communion with Me. I want to show you how to set others free, not just as you have learned to do in the past, no. You have each learned a level of deliverance and healing from Me, but that is not enough for the days ahead. I am going to the very deep within men. Down to the depth of the very root of the sin within them.
I am going to not only bring My Harvest in, but I am going to set free this generation to be great Ambassadors of My Light. It is time for My Light to shine. It is time for My Life to shine. It is time for My People to shine. It is time. It is Harvest Time. So I am starting with you. You shall walk in My Freedom as never before. I shall cause you to break forth even more. I shall cause you to leap like calves from the stall. I shall give you hinds feet and you shall run with total freedom, even within your soul. You shall never wonder again. You shall never look back into your past again. You shall only desire the things ahead. You shall rush towards the goal that I have set for your life with joy and thanksgiving. I shall be your total delight, for you will see Me in a different light and will understand within your very soul that you are free. For who the Son sets free is free indeed.
Men think they are free, even My people think that they are free from everything, but they do not know the depths of depravity within their own soul. I will come to every man and I will reveal to them their true condition to them, and I will shine My Light within their soul and heart, and will show them what I require for each of them. I will start with My House, with each of you, and I will also sweep the earth. My House will be even more Glorious in the earth! My Gatherings shall be even more Glorious in the earth. I will no longer have the demonic influences and the works of darkness, and the infighting that is happening daily, even within your own soul. I will no longer have the demonic influences, the works and deeds of darkness and the infighting that is within My People and also in My House. I will have divine order and I will have Divine Communion. For as you commune with Me in liberty within your own soul and heart, then you will also commune with those around you in the same manner. This is the true unity that I shall bring. Only that which is resident within men is what defiles them, or qualifies them. If you are full of darkness then so shall be your fruit. But if you are full of light, then you shall reveal My Heart and My Might.
It is time that My Body that dwells in the earth lays down their lives for each other and also for all men. But this can only be done when you have laid down your very soul life unto Me. For you must defeat the thoughts of your own soul, and the internal battles that war within your own members and heart; before the power of My Resurrection Life can fully start. Even My Son learned this suffering in his daily life and walk with me, as well as he did in the garden with Me, and also as He beheld Me upon His Cross. You each have your cross as well, as you walk out your life in the earth. Overcome it! Choose this day who you will serve, either the current master of your soul and it's wishes, or Mine. When you will die to your soul and its desires, and to your heart and it's carnal desires, then you can die to the demonic roots that still lie deeply embedded within your soul. Then I can extract them and heal you in that area. Then and only then will you be a full instrument of Light that cannot be tainted or tempted, as I will fully inhabit that area and I will diffuse it with My Light. My Light overcomes all darkness and swallows it up. My Light cannot be overtaken by darkness in any form. You cannot either, if you are fully transformed within by My Light. Shall I be your Master? Shall I be your Lord? Take up your sword! Use it against the battle that rages with you and around you. I will show you what to do.
It is time to uproot every evil thought, every tendency towards darkness, and every temptation that so easily besets you and your progress with Me. I want you to navigate this life successfully in Me. I am your Light! I will guide you through every day and through every night. I will guide you through times of war and through times of peace. I will guide you through times of feasting and through times of famine. I will be your God and you shall be My People, My Church. You are to be My Triumphant and Overcoming Church in the earth. You are to be My Church that will triumph over every devil, over every earthly enemy, and over every obstacle that comes your way. You shall possess the Kingdom and you shall possess the gates of your enemies. So I will start with the first and primary gate, and that is the gate of your own souls. For this is where the enemy binds all men, in their hearts and minds. This is also where I write My Word, upon the hearts and minds. There can only be one tablet to write upon, and only one thing shall be written. Man shall have only one master. The enemy or Me.
I am removing the darkness that has been cast over you. I will show you each what to do. You shall know every mystery that comes your way, for you shall walk in My Light and there will be no darkness to cloud your hearing or sight. You shall not judge by what you think, or feel, or even by what you see, no, you shall then judge righteously, for you shall judge as I judge, you shall bring everything to My Light. When you each begin to do this, then the works of the devil that have been sown in your midst will finally be destroyed and My Spirit will break forth unhindered and full of power, even through you! My Light will now increase among you, and the more that you embrace it's dealings within you, the more that you will see also pour through. You will determine the degree of liberty that shall be, by the measure that you individually walk in and also corporately flow together in. You shall be My Vessels of Light, My Light Towers erected all across your land. I shall expand. I shall transform more, as you transform more. I shall pour and pour and pour, so let Me in more, and more and more. You are now in a great global war, and it shall become a great, great roar in the earth, but through the tumultuous birth, you will run in strength, in joy, in prosperity, and in victory, setting people free as you each obey Me. I shall triumph gloriously through thee! Take control of your destiny and yield to Me completely! Take your land, My People. Take your own internal land, and then you will quickly externally expand!
Is 25:1 O LORD, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will praise Your name, for You have done wonderful things, even purposes planned of old [and fulfilled] in faithfulness and truth. 2 For You have made a city a heap, a fortified city a ruin, a palace of aliens without a city [is no more a city]; it will never be rebuilt. 3 Therefore [many] a strong people will glorify You, [many] a city of terrible and ruthless nations will [reverently] fear You. 4 For You have been a stronghold for the poor, a stronghold for the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm, a shade from the heat; for the blast of the ruthless ones is like a rainstorm against a wall. 5 As the heat in a dry land [is reduced by the shadow of a cloud, so] You will bring down the noise of aliens [exultant over their enemies]; and as the heat is brought low by the shadow of a cloud, so the song of the ruthless ones is brought low. 6 And on this Mount [Zion] shall the Lord of hosts make for all peoples a feast of rich things [symbolic of His coronation festival inaugurating the reign of the Lord on earth, in the wake of a background of gloom, judgment, and terror], a feast of wines on the lees--of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 7 And He will destroy on this mountain the covering of the face that is cast over the heads of all peoples [in mourning], and the veil [of profound wretchedness] that is woven and spread over all nations. 8 He will swallow up death [in victory; He will abolish death forever]. And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; and the reproach of His people He will take away from off all the earth; for the Lord has spoken it. 9 It shall be said in that day, Behold our God upon Whom we have waited and hoped, that He might save us! This is the Lord, we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation. 10 For the hand of the Lord shall rest on this Mount [Zion], and Moab shall be threshed and trodden down in his place as straw is trodden down in the [filthy] water of a [primitive] cesspit. 11 And though [Moab] stretches forth his hands in the midst of [the filthy water] as a swimmer stretches out his hands to swim, the Lord will bring down [Moab's] pride in spite of the skillfulness of his hands and together with the spoils of his hands. 12 And the high fortifications of your walls [the Lord] will bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.
2 Corinthians 3:1 ARE WE starting to commend ourselves again? Or we do not, like some [false teachers], need written credentials or letters of recommendation to you or from you, [do we]? 2 [No] you yourselves are our letter of recommendation (our credentials), written in your hearts, to be known (perceived, recognized) and read by everybody. 3 You show and make obvious that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, not written with ink but with [the] Spirit of [the] living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. 4 Such is the reliance and confidence that we have through Christ toward and with reference to God. 5 Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient in ability) of ourselves to form personal judgments or to claim or count anything as coming from us, but our power and ability and sufficiency are from God. 6 [It is He] Who has qualified us [making us to be fit and worthy and sufficient] as ministers and dispensers of a new covenant [of salvation through Christ], not [ministers] of the letter (of legally written code) but of the Spirit; for the code [of the Law] kills, but the [Holy] Spirit makes alive. 7 Now if the dispensation of death engraved in letters on stone [the ministration of the Law], was inaugurated with such glory and splendor that the Israelites were not able to look steadily at the face of Moses because of its brilliance, [a glory] that was to fade and pass away, 8 Why should not the dispensation of the Spirit [this spiritual ministry whose task it is to cause men to obtain and be governed by the Holy Spirit] be attended with much greater and more splendid glory? 9 For if the service that condemns [the ministration of doom] had glory, how infinitely more abounding in splendor and glory must be the service that makes righteous [the ministry that produces and fosters righteous living and right standing with God]! 10 Indeed, in view of this fact, what once had splendor [the glory of the Law in the face of Moses] has come to have no splendor at all, because of the overwhelming glory that exceeds and excels it [the glory of the Gospel in the face of Jesus Christ]. 11 For if that which was but passing and fading away came with splendor, how much more must that which remains and is permanent abide in glory and splendor! 12 Since we have such [glorious] hope (such joyful and confident expectation), we speak very freely and openly and fearlessly. 13 Nor [do we act] like Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze upon the finish of the vanishing [splendor which had been upon it]. 14 In fact, their minds were grown hard and calloused [they had become dull and had lost the power of understanding]; for until this present day, when the Old Testament (the old covenant) is being read, that same veil still lies [on their hearts], not being lifted [to reveal] that in Christ it is made void and done away. 15 Yes, down to this [very] day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies upon their minds and hearts. 16 But whenever a person turns [in repentance] to the Lord, the veil is stripped off and taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom). 18 And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.
Holy Spirit, you are the Spirit of Truth.
I acknowledge you and ask you to search my soul, my heart.
I ask you to sine the Light of the Truth to the very depths of my being.
I ask you to remove every root of darkness that is embedded within me.
I ask you to remove every wicked thought that has born seed or fruit within my mind, my heart, or my body.
I ask you to reveal any hindrances or stumbling blocks to me that prevent me from walking in true liberty.
I ask you to show me what truly influences me from the world or from the enemy.
I ask you to show me that which I am attached to within my being that is not attached to you.
I ask you to cleanse me from anything that is darkness, sin, or rebellion.
I now repent of all that you have shown to me.
Jesus, I turn to you, to the forgiveness that comes through your shed blood upon the cross.
I receive the cleansing and healing of your Life and Light.
Cleanse my thoughts, my soul, my mind with the washing of your Word..
Cleanse my heart, my spirit, my being.
Cleanse my body, my flesh, my walk.
Cleanse my life, my path, my fruit, that I might bear even more fruit.
Fill me with more of your Light now, in every dimension of My being.
Let your Sword of your Spirit divide the layers in me that abide.
Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me.
Flood my being with the full and intimate knowledge of you.
Transform me now, resurrect me now, and translate me out of the kingdom of darkness (from within me and from outside of me) and into the Kingdom of your Light, so that now I can bear the fruits of your light wherever I go in the earth.
Guide me today, in thought and in deed, and water every seed that I will bear in obedience to you.
I acknowledge you as My God, as My Head, and as My Lord, and I give you my will today.
I will hear your voice only and obey it and follow it, and do it.
I will prosper as my soul prospers, in you.
I will shine and reveal your Face to all men wherever I go, in the agreement of your flow.
Speak now, Lord. Move now Lord. Do what is written for my life in your books.
Have your way in all things, as they are in heaven, they shall be in the earth.

Looking Upon Him Who You Love
As I sat upon my couch late at night unable to sleep, I felt the drawing of the Lord in my spirit. I could see the heart of the Lord and He was looking for those who were searching for Him. I could feel His desire for those who thought of nothing else but of being with Him. My thoughts went to my own searching's, and to the need to press in even more than I currently do. I could feel the seriousness of the Spirit as I thought of these things. I could sense the urgency of His Spirit as I knew the time of relative peace was short and that we needed to draw close now. As I thought on this, I then felt the Lord begin to speak:
The Lord spoke to my heart, "Yes, the time of peace that is in the earth is going to draw to a close for a season, but even so, this you already know. But still there is much busyness and distractions that divert you and My people. It is not a time to be caught up in endless pursuits of your souls, but it is much more profitable for you to seek Me and to obtain the strengthening of your spirits, minds, and bodies for the days ahead. The enemy sees that you are walking in a higher level of understanding now, and there is now a great wrestling in the spirit realm for the attention of man. He knows that if he can get you distracted, or fighting, or diverted doing other things, then you will not gain the necessary wisdom and grace that I have for you at this time. There is a great war that has begun, and many will be swept up into it if they yield to the devices of the enemy. Look not to the things that would draw you away from Me, and do not partake of endless disputes, and listen not to the accusations from the enemy or the reviling's from man, for these shall increase as the war increases."
"What you give your attention to shall also be formed within you, as you think upon it and feed upon it. But if you truly seek Me as your life, and feed upon Me, then I shall be formed within you in even greater measures as you seek Me alone. As you learn of Me you shall increasingly become like Me, and shall walk in My Wisdom in a more deeper measure, and you shall also know the Council of heaven. I always stand before My Father, and as you commune with Me, you shall also commune with the Father, and we shall dwell with you richly. This is what the enemy does not want, for you to become one with us or to be transformed even further. He does not want My People to become My Habitation, so the war will attempt to divide from the heart. You must give your hearts completely to me, and trust not in your own wisdom or thoughts. Child, you must humble yourself and walk closely to Me in the days to come. Great is the danger of pride and of offenses in this battle. I came that you might have life and have it abundantly. But I did not desire that your eyes be given to the pleasures and cares of the world."
"Come closer, and know that I Am. You know Me, and that which you have understood in your knowledge of Me shall increase and shall grow even richer and shall flow from you to others as you go. I look upon the earth, and I long for them to understand Me, and My Word, but many do not treasure it nor pursuit it with all of their hearts. Shall this generation inquire of Me? Shall you fulfill your destiny that is written? You shall if you turn to Me and search out MY Face each day. If you walk in humility and in My love and in a sincere desire for My Life to be revealed to all you know. I must be your highest desire. Search your heart and see if there is any way within you that would draw you from Me, and choose to set your attention fully upon Me today! Do not go after the riches of men, nor the teachings of men, nor the activities that wear upon your spirit and drain you of vision. No, but ignite your vision even more! Set your heart upon Me, and walk in My Presence regularly. Train your thoughts to be stayed upon Me, and My Life will fill your hearts and minds even more. You will not even e drawn into the war, but you shall walk upon the heights with Me and know what to do with great clarity. This you must do, to walk victoriously all the way through!"
"There are assignments sent to distract. There are assignments meant to attract. There are assignments moving to combat. There are assignments launched to break pacts. Many dark assignments are already arrayed to break your union and your covenant with Me, and with each other in this hour. But you must walk above these things in My Peace, and you shall if you are diligent to watch with Me. Set your heart for action and be consumed only with Me and as you do, I shall cover you completely and I shall give you greater eyes to see. I shall show you every hidden strategy. I shall bring you through victoriously. I shall cause you to become great, and very strong, and wise in the land. You shall walk above and not below, you shall not enter in to the fray, or into the rage and the fear, but you shall see My Face even more clear. I am the Key to this Hour's Mystery. You shall not walk right if you do not keep Me within your sight. For I am doing a great work in the land. I shall see if the hearts are truly given to Me. Much of the events ahead shall be mistaken if you attempt to navigate through in your own understanding and wisdom; and what I have for you in the events shall not apprehended if you are not zealous to maintain your intimacy with Me. Many shall walk in error and in deep anxiety in the days ahead, because what I do shall not be measured correctly from trusting below. You must walk with Me to correctly know."
"I shall draw you even more in the day and in the night. I shall look to see if you are thinking of Me, if you are watching with Me. I shall know the way that your heart will go. I shall mark those that make Me their life in this hour, and I shall be faithful to those who walk in My Love and with My Peace and with those who shun the traps of strife. I am the Way that you shall walk in each day. I shall part open the way each day! Fear not your brother, but gather together, and strengthen your bonds. Know that My Love through you shall always respond! Yoke yourself to Me continually within your heart, make sure that you are fully in the faith, and trust Me without fail! You shall surely prevail! You shall not fail, nor shall you miss My Will, if you will each day faithfully climb My Holy Hill!"
"As you link yourself tightly to Me, you shall also link yourself tightly to My Body, and the harmony that we share in your hearts, will also spread everywhere. You shall break the enemies bonds, and you shall tread down the wicked serpents, and you shall undo all of the chains that ever seek to restrain. I shall arise as you arise! I shall stand as you stand! I shall meet with you and you shall meet with Me! Together you shall stand, and you shall overcome, and you shall be filled with Me gloriously."
Psalms 14:2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any who understood, dealt wisely, and sought after God, inquiring for and of Him and requiring Him [of vital necessity].
Psalms 53:2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any who understood, who act wisely, who sought (inquired after and desperately required) God.
Psalms 101:6 My eyes shall [look with favor] upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walks blamelessly, he shall minister to me.
Psalms 64:4 Blessed is the one you choose and bring near, to dwell in your courts! We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, the holiness of your temple!
Psalms 27:4 One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple.
Psalms 84:2 My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God.
Psalms 63:2 So I have looked upon You in the sanctuary to see Your power and Your glory.
Psalms 26:8 O LORD, I love the habitation of your house and the place where your glory dwells.
Psalms 23:2 He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.
Isaiah 35:8 And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it. It shall belong to those who walk on the way; even if they are fools, they shall not go astray.
Mark 10:21 And Jesus, looking upon him, loved him, and He said to him, You lack one thing; go and sell all you have and give [the money] to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come [and] accompany Me [walking the same road that I walk].
1 Peter 2:12 Conduct yourselves properly (honorably, righteously) among the Gentiles, so that, although they may slander you as evildoers, [yet] they may by witnessing your good deeds [come to] glorify God in the day of inspection [ when God shall look upon you wanderers as a pastor or shepherd looks over his flock].
2 Chronicles 15:2 and he went out to meet Asa and said to him, "Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: The LORD is with you while you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.
Mark 3:5 And he looked around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness of heart, and said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was restored.

Share My Heart Amongst Yourselves
Share My Heart amongst yourselves, My People. I want you to share My Heart. I want you to not just talk about what you know from the study and pursuit of knowledge, but I also want you to partake of Me and to share what you receive from Me with each other. I am the Living Word and I do dwell among you and also within you. But there is not yet enough of My Heart being shared or released amongst My you. This must change. I am going to cause a deeper dissatisfaction to come forth that will seem unsettling to you at first, but this will cause you to draw even more closer to Me, and to search out the deeper things that are within My Heart, things that I do desire to impart. I have waited to impart them to you and to show you new deeper things in My Word. It is time to leave the elementary things and to begin to draw from Me the meat and the bread, and the oil and the wine. I have a feast that is ready for you to partake of. But you must desire it more than your current comforts and lifestyles. You must desire it together and share it and grow by it, so that you can prosper.
These natural comforts and lifestyles that you live out daily shall change, and much on the earth shall be rearranged. Time itself has changed and what you trust in now to sustain you will not always be, for I have determined to bring a course correction to the earth at this time. You know this, for I have told you these things, but many still do not listen and they continue to drift along in their routines. No more delay, I say, do not delay from coming closer at this time! Seek the choicest of portions from My Word and search it out to fully satisfy your heart's desire, for only I can satisfy the longings within you. All that you seek for and all that you reach out for today shall change as I further order things to rearrange. Strengthen your hearts and minds in Me. Gird up the loins of your minds and make ready your hearts for strong visitations to come from Me. For I shall come stronger and I shall not be hidden any longer. I shall reveal Myself to you! I have come to share with you all that the Father shares with Me. In My House there is no lack or fear or despair or unfruitfulness, no, in My House, there is Life and there is Truth, and there is Hope, and there is Faith. I have prepared it for you. I will now show it to you, and fashion it into your hearts and minds. Then I will unveil it through you, and build it through you, as you all seek Me. I am unveiling My House for all men to see. As you grows, you all shall also transform in the earth into a great Light, and become a great Signal to the inhabitants of the earth, revealing that I Am in her midst. I shall do this, even as I form you anew as the days unfold ahead of you.
You must gather more together and hear what My Spirit does say to your hearts, for I shall quickly move across the earth. Depend not upon your own resources and on your minds wisdom, for that shall fail you as I move in the earth. For that which I do shall not be known to your mind, or even understood by your minds. But that which I speak to your spirit shall agree with Me, and then you shall move with Me in unity. Take heed lest you think you stand, for if you stand in your own knowledge, then you shall surely fall before all. I shall not move as men think I will. I shall move as My Father wills Me to. That which the Father has prepared for your time has not all been revealed to men, for the hidden things belong to you, to My People to search out. What has been withheld for your day is unfolding amidst the changes that are determined for your time. I have told you many times, do not measure the changes that you see happening and then seek to fit the time into them, for if you do then you shall miss Me entirely. You must learn even more of Me, and as you do, then My Wisdom shall guide you in My exact steps for you, and as you step them out, you shall understand not only the time, but also the course to follow. My sheep hear My Voice, and they shall follow Me, but will you allow the cares of the world, and the things that you trust in to lure you away, and from My Council that is calling you deeper? Many seek knowledge, but it will not sustain you if it is not born of Me.
The desires of natural things must not creep in anymore, but you must drive them out instead. Drive them out with My Presence, and My Word. Seek to know the depths of My Heart, and apply those things that I shall speak to you, so that you can stand in this unfolding hour. Great shall be the anxiety that shall grip those that are not joined to Me, not joined to My Heart, and those not eating of the things that I give to you each day. Look no more to the cares of men, or to trying to please men and to gain their favors. It is time to gain Mine! it is time to know My Heart and Mind! Seek Me! You must set your face as flint to walk in the course set before you, but know that as you do, it shall not be a trial or even a burden to do so, no, but it shall be a delight! For I am the delight of all that set their heart's upon Me. As you ascend higher into My Heart, into My very Presence each day, you shall be caught up into Me. I shall fill you with My Life even more, I shall water you liberally, and it shall flow through you and flow out of you. My Heart shall flow out of you. My Mind shall flow out of you. My Life shall flow out of you. My Peace shall flow out of you. My very Father, shall also flow out of you. For I said, as they see Me in you, they shall see My Father in you. My Spirit shall water you and show you My Heart and reveal all of My intentions for you. I know what I am doing. You must make good use of your time, for great change is upon you. I will teach you, and you shall brighten with each new day. So search My depths, and you shall have ample light for your steps.
1 Corinthians 2:15 But the spiritual man tries all things [he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things], yet is himself to be put on trial and judged by no one [he can read the meaning of everything, but no one can properly discern or appraise or get an insight into him]. 16 For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.
TM: 14-16 The unspiritual self, just as it is by nature, can't receive the gifts of God's Spirit. There's no capacity for them. They seem like so much silliness. Spirit can be known only by spirit—God's Spirit and our spirits in open communion. Spiritually alive, we have access to everything God's Spirit is doing, and can't be judged by unspiritual critics. Isaiah's question, "Is there anyone around who knows God's Spirit, anyone who knows what he is doing?" has been answered: Christ knows, and we have Christ's Spirit.
NLT: 15 Those who are spiritual can evaluate all things, but they themselves cannot be evaluated by others. 16 For, “Who can know the Lord’s thoughts? Who knows enough to teach him?” But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ.

The Gatherings of the Lord's Ranks Vision 12-5-11
On 12-5-11, I was sitting in the church by the sound table, and at the end of the prayer watch we were doing, I saw in the vision many eagles begin to fly into the church in the Spirit. I looked at the clock on the wall and the time was 11:59 pm. The Lord said that it had to do with the date, 12/5. Then, I saw after that, many horses began to run into the building. A few minutes later, I saw many lions began to gather into the building. There were waves of gatherings coming. Waves of the Lord's ranks, of eagles, horses, and lions that are being orchestrated right now from heaven, and we will begin to move in heaven's timing, and begin to respond and gather on earth as the Lord speaks to us to fulfill His mandates on the earth ahead.
Patrick said that the date of December 5th had to do with the date that Patrick had a prophetic experience with the Resurrection angels in the past, and it is also the date that Bob Jones prophesied in the past of the Healing Revival coming back around again in our time, but now it will be greater.
The Lord has His Purposes that He wants us all to apprehend in the days ahead, and we can only do this as we begin to gather corporately to hear and to share the heart and mind of the Lord together. So, the Lord is going to gather us in specific timings and in specific regional locations, and He is going to call specific groups of saints to gather, that will accomplish specific tasks and assignments that the Lord has ordained for them to accomplish in their corporate venue. It is a time to apprehend the full council of God from each other and to go deeper together into the Lord's desire for us and for the nations.
Let's look at the prophetic symbolism of the eagles, horses, and lions to get more understanding.
Each type also represents the Lord Himself, but also His People:
Prophets; Those who have also learned to fully enter into His Rest;
Exodus 19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.
Daniel 4:33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws.
Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.
His Warriors; His Army
Proverbs 21:31 The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but deliverance and victory are of the Lord.
Proverbs 30:31 The war horse [well-knit in the loins], the male goat also, and the king [when his army is with him and] against whom there is no uprising.
Zechariah 10:3 My anger is kindled against the shepherds [who are not true shepherds] and I will punish the goat leaders, for the Lord of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah, and will make them as His beautiful and majestic horse in the battle.
Zechariah 12:4 In that day, says the Lord, I will smite every horse [of the armies that contend against Jerusalem] with terror and panic and his rider with madness; and I will open My eyes and regard with favor the house of Judah and will smite every horse of the opposing nations with blindness.
Zechariah 9:10 And I will cut off and exterminate the war chariot from Ephraim and the [war] horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off; and He shall speak the word and peace shall come to the nations, and His dominion shall be from the [Mediterranean] Sea to [any other] sea, and from the River [Euphrates] to the ends of the earth!
Revelation 19:11 After that I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse [appeared]! The One Who was riding it is called Faithful (Trustworthy, Loyal, Incorruptible, Steady) and True, and He passes judgment and wages war in righteousness (holiness, justice, and uprightness).
His Apostles; His Governing Leadership; His Overcoming People; The Watchman
Proverbs 30:30 The lion, which is mightiest among beasts and turns not back before any;
Proverbs 28:15 Like a roaring lion or a ravenous and charging bear is a wicked ruler over a poor people.
Genesis 49:9 Judah, a lion's cub! With the prey, my son, you have gone high up [the mountain]. He stooped down, he crouched like a lion, and like a lioness--who dares provoke and rouse him?
Ezekiel 19: 2 And say, What a lioness was your mother [Jerusalem-Judah]! She couched among lions; in the midst of young lions she nourished her cubs. 3 And she [the royal mother-city] brought up one of her cubs [Jehoahaz]; he became a young lion and he learned to catch the prey; he devoured men. 5 Now when she had waited, she saw her hope was lost. Then she took another of her cubs [Jehoiachin] and made him a young lion. 6 And he [Jehoiachin] went up and down among the lions; he became a young lion and learned to catch prey, and he devoured men.
Numbers 23:23 Surely there is no enchantment with or against Jacob, neither is there any divination with or against Israel. [In due season and even] now it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What has God wrought! 24 Behold, a people! They rise up as a lioness and lift themselves up as a lion; he shall not lie down until he devours the prey and drinks the blood of the slain.
Micah 5:8 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the nations in the midst of many peoples like a lion among the beasts of the forest, like a young lion [suddenly appearing] among the flocks of sheep which, when it goes through, treads down and tears in pieces, and there is no deliverer.
2 Samuel 17:10 And even he who is brave, whose heart is as the heart of a lion, will utterly melt, for all Israel knows that your father is a mighty man and that those who are with him are brave men.
Proverbs 28:1 THE WICKED flee when no man pursues them, but the [uncompromisingly] righteous are bold as a lion.
Isaiah 21:8 And [the watchman] cried like a lion, O Lord, I stand continually on the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my station every night.
Revelation 5:5 Then one of the elders [ of the heavenly Sanhedrin] said to me, Stop weeping! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root (Source) of David, has won (has overcome and conquered)! He can open the scroll and break its seven seals!
Each type of vessel will be gathered for a specific timing and purpose and they will begin to unite and form great ranks of hosts that God will head up as they each take their God-given inheritances and lands for the Kingdom's sake.
We need to heed the Lord's call and learn to submit to one another as the Body, and as we all submit to the Lord who is over us all. He will then show us what we are to do in the years ahead. This will enable the whole global Body of Christ to rise up and to be established in the earth as a healthy and vital extension of Christ Himself.

The Underground Mine Shafts Vision 12-4-11
I was sitting at the sound table in church listening to Patrick minister to the People, and suddenly I was shown a huge underground scene. I saw many tunnels being dug. They were scattered everywhere and they were all at different levels of depth and also different degrees of mining. Some were just beginning to dig below the surface. Some had broken down to the deeper depths that were harder to get through. Others were very deep and had even begun to spread out into extra branches that went horizontal as well as vertical. In each of these shafts, the miners had found some deposits of ore and were taking them to the surface as they progressed in their various endeavors.
I saw that each was unaware of the other mine shaft, except for a few that had bumped into another's mine shaft under the surface and they had begun to work together in their now expanded shaft. I noticed that those that had discovered another mine shaft had the ability to go deeper than they could of alone. I also saw that there were some other shafts that when they broke through and found another shaft that they grew angry and they went back up to the surface and filled in their shaft. They would not share their ore with the other miners. There was a lot of activity and even above the surface the atmosphere was tense, as the ore that was being sent above was grabbed immediately by those waiting for it and it was sent to the factories and packaged as soon as it was discovered. A very few took the ore and put it in the smelter that stood by and they watched over it patiently, I could see that they recognized the value of the ore and wanted to increase their value so they put it in the fires. But most only wanted to profit from the ore as it was. I could see their ore was not as good as the ore that was refined in the smelter.
Then I looked back at the mines below the surface and I saw the Hand of the Lord put an invisible barrier under the deepest mine and it could go no deeper. This forced the mines to either begin to spread out or to eventually exhaust their supply of ore in their shaft. So, more and more of the mines began to spread out and eventually they created a great vast tunneling system and caves and eventually small networks that began to interconnect and increase in it's capacity to not only bring ore to the surface, but also to teach each other what they had learned as they dug. So the miners then began to employ each other's digging methods and soon, they all began to mine for ore the same way. They even perfected new methods as they joined forces that had never been thought of before.
As I watched, I saw the Lord then shake the earth, and some of the shafts collapsed and they were forced to moved into another's tunnel to help them, and also some of the other tunnels were expanded into greater sized caves than before because of the earthquake. Over time, I saw that the Lord also watched their progress and as they began to move in a vast network system and as they then utilized each others resources in a greater harmony. Then the Lord removed His Hand that restrained them from going deeper. As He did this, they all sensed the new release and with a joint effort they began to all dig deeper and to send the ore up to the surface together. As they went into depths that no one had dug to before, they began to find ore that was so big that they had to have great cranes reach down and lift it to the surface. The ore in the greatest depths also had an inner brilliance and luminosity that caused them to not need their machines, and flashlights and the usual mining gear that they had needed on the shallower surfaces. So their tasks were easier and more men could help them.
The more I watched the more joy I felt because I saw that even those men on the surface that had formerly grabbed the ore as soon as it reached the surface, even they were now growing excited over the great big stones that were now being lifted up by the cranes. So much was being brought up that they also saw it's value and everything that came up was now sent to the smelter right away. The factories now had to wait till the ore was refined. Soon, even the factory workers joined in the smelting and so great was the smelting that the factories closed, and were refitted into smelting ovens too. All of the workers were excited because they were all talking about the great stones that were lifted to the surface and they wondered what they would be when they opened the ovens to see the treasures that would emerge. I watched and the excitement spread even further, and soon, the whole town heard of the activity and everyone came to watch and to help. As this happened, there was no one unemployed and the whole town prospered.
When other towns heard what the other city was doing, the leaders from that town came and learned what had occurred and soon they joined in and started smelting operations too to help the miners. Soon it spread and towns all over the nation became smelters and workers in the mines. The whole nation them began to prosper and the joy that spread through them was exhilarating to watch. They were all so caught up in bringing the ore to the surface that they left their other tasks too and nothing was done at all, but mining the mines. The Lord stood next to me as I watched and He smiled. He asked Me if I understood the vision. I said, "Yes." He then said, "That's good, but there's still more."
He then pointed and said, "What you see is the progress of My Church from the very beginning, up till this present generation. I have withheld much of the discovery of My Word and it's deeper truths because men still most only want it for themselves and do not share it with others. Many profit from it and they do not value it enough to give it's true worth to others to see the people increase. I have withheld much of the deeper truths because most do not perceive My Heart in the earth, nor My intentions because of the hardness of their hearts and the selfish desires that breed the pride that keeps them independent of each other. So I have forced them to either quit digging or to branch out and also to discover their brother who labors in the fields next to them. This field is given to all of My Body, and I now demand that My Body become one and to learn to supply what each other needs and also lacks. As you saw, many do not yet trust each other enough to see that I am the Lord within each of them. When they can recognize Me within each of them, then they will have to choose to either embrace Me in them, or they will reject Me. This will cause them to be disqualified, or to be further enabled to produce even more of My Ore. I have purposely hidden the greatest of Revelations in the very deepest places, and these deposits will soon be discovered, for I have determined that your generation find them in this New Day. This is the Church's finest Hour, and if they will learn to work together as they each follow Me, then they will achieve this that I have for them. It is appointed unto you to bring forth the hidden treasures of the deep and to finish My Workmanship that I have begun. You will each determine the Ore that will be brought forth and that will be valued in the earth, for I have desired that all men share in the Knowledge of Me."
"The Ore in the deepest levels is the Knowledge of My Glory that has not yet been apprehended by any generation up till now. If you do not come into the measure of the fullest stature of the Knowledge of My Glory that I have desired for you to, then I will shake the mines severely in My quake and I will start anew with a fresh field and I will bring new miners to My Land to start again. There is no more time to remain alone, you each must reach out and inter connect to have a greater effect and to apprehend the depth of the knowledge of Me that will satisfy the cry of inhabitants of the earth. I have heard their cries, and I have made you the ones to meet the demands for My Word and it's life, but what will you each do with the measure of Understanding and Grace that I have given unto you? I have the greatest of treasures waiting for you. Spread out your tent pegs and make room for Me, for I shall fill you all liberally as you all obey Me unselfishly."
Then the vision ended.
Job 28:1 "Surely there is a mine for silver, and a place for gold that they refine. 2 Iron is taken out of the earth, and copper is smelted from the ore. 3 Man puts an end to darkness and searches out to the farthest limit the ore in gloom and deep darkness. 4 He opens shafts in a valley away from where anyone lives; they are forgotten by travelers; they hang in the air, far away from mankind; they swing to and fro. 5 As for the earth, out of it comes bread, but underneath it is turned up as by fire. 6 Its stones are the place of sapphires, and it has dust of gold. 7 "That path no bird of prey knows, and the falcon’s eye has not seen it. 8 The proud beasts have not trodden it; the lion has not passed over it. 9 "Man puts his hand to the flinty rock and overturns mountains by the roots. 10 He cuts out channels in the rocks, and his eye sees every precious thing. 11 He dams up the streams so that they do not trickle, and the thing that is hidden he brings out to light. 12 "But where shall wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding? 13 Man does not know its worth, and it is not found in the land of the living. 14 The deep says, 'It is not in me,' and the sea says, 'It is not with me.' 15 It cannot be bought for gold, and silver cannot be weighed as its price. 16 It cannot be valued in the gold of Ophir, in precious onyx or sapphire. 17 Gold and glass cannot equal it, nor can it be exchanged for jewels of fine gold. 18 No mention shall be made of coral or of crystal; the price of wisdom is above pearls. 19 The topaz of Ethiopia cannot equal it, nor can it be valued in pure gold. 20 "From where, then, does wisdom come? And where is the place of understanding? 21 It is hidden from the eyes of all living and concealed from the birds of the air. 22 Abaddon and Death say, 'We have heard a rumor of it with our ears.' 23"God understands the way to it, and he knows its place. 24 For he looks to the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens. 25 When he gave to the wind its weight and apportioned the waters by measure, 26when he made a decree for the rain and a way for the lightning of the thunder, 27 then he saw it and declared it; he established it, and searched it out. 28 And he said to man,' Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to turn away from evil is understanding.'"
The Harvest Fields Of Cotton 12-6-11
I saw in the vision a field. It was full of plants and I knew that they were cotton plants. As far as you could see there was cotton plants and they were ready. I watched and I saw a fire come and sweep the field and as it did, the cotton burst open on the plants. The whole field was white with the cotton puffs. Then a wind came and the cotton balls were blown upon till the cotton began to lift up and they all then rose upon the winds and blew all over the earth.
The Lord said, "This is your inheritance, the Harvesters that are being made ready for the fields of the world. I am showing you this in this way so that you can see that I have made them ready through their fiery trials. I now have released My Winds of Change into their lives. I will lift them higher into the freedom and liberty of My Spirit that I have ordained for them, and I will cause them to burn even more with My Vision for the Harvest, and they shall arise and be carried by Me to the fields of the earth to do My will. The cotton represents the fabric of My Body. My Workmanship. With My Fabric I can weave My Glorious Tapestry for all of the world to see. You are called to help them. You are called to teach them, to mentor them, and to encourage them. I have set My teachers in the Body for a reason, to equip My People. I have set My apostles and prophets in the Body for a reason, to guide them. I have raised up all of My leaders for a reason, to lead and to feed them. As you each obey Me, then they shall be the fruit that comes forth from you, and you shall inherit the earth. It is time to build My Body. It is time for you all to bring forth My Harvesters, for the fields are ripe and I am moving in the earth."
John 4:34 Jesus said to them, My food (nourishment) is to do the will (pleasure) of Him Who sent Me and to accomplish and completely finish His work. 35 Do you not say, It is still four months until harvest time comes? Look! I tell you, raise your eyes and observe the fields and see how they are already white for harvesting. 36 Already the reaper is getting his wages [he who does the cutting now has his reward], for he is gathering fruit (crop) unto life eternal, so that he who does the planting and he who does the reaping may rejoice together. 37 For in this the saying holds true, One sows and another reaps. 38 I sent you to reap a crop for which you have not toiled. Other men have labored and you have stepped in to reap the results of their work.
Luke 10:2 And He said to them, The harvest indeed is abundant [there is much ripe grain], but the farmhands are few. Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.
Isaiah 9:1 BUT [in the midst of judgment there is the promise and the certainty of the Lord's deliverance and] there shall be no gloom for her who was in anguish. In the former time [the Lord] brought into contempt the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the latter time He will make it glorious, by the way of the Sea [of Galilee, the land] beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations. 2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great Light; those who dwelt in the land of intense darkness and the shadow of death, upon them has the Light shined. 3 You [O Lord] have multiplied the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before You like the joy in harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil [of battle].
