The Fortresses of Truth and the 12 Torches - 07-03-13:
I have told you
Children, that I am here for war. I am here to tear down, and also to restore.
I am here to uproot, but also to plant. I am here. I am here, and I am a God of
War in the midst of My House. I have come to test and to try. I have come to
reveal and to pry. I have come to defend and to rout. I have come to reveal who
I am. I have come to reveal who I am again. For many of My People have lost not
only the Fear of Me, but the Vision of Me. For their vision has dimmed by the
world and by prosperity. But I say unto you, that I shall shake them. I shall
shake them until they quake before Me in this hour.
I am coming for a
People that respect and honor Me in My House, and that have a reverence for My
Name. I am coming to redeem My Name in this city. I am coming to redeem My
House. I am coming to cleanse and defend My House, for I shall have Fortresses
of Truthin this city. I shall have
Fortresses of Truth in this nation. I shall shake this nation, and I shall
bring her to her knees before Me, saith the Lord. I shall do it in a day. I
shall do it in a year. I shall do it in a decade. I shall do it, for I told you
that I am stepping you out. I am coming more, and My Holy Fire shall descend
My Fiery Sword shall
test, and divide, and devour more. I shall pierce the hearts, and I shall
divide the soul and the spirit. I shall expose and they shall know that I am,
for they shall see their condition before Me. I am coming to destroy the works
of the enemy, that has destroyed My People, that has destroyed My House in
areas. I have seen those things that have been done, for I have allowed it to
test you. I have sifted you. I have tried you. I have tested you. I have found
you worthy, more than able. I have found you capable because of these things,
of building My House, of laying again a right foundation, of building My People
upon Me. My House shall be filled with My Praise, with My Prayer, and with My
I am coming to fill
My House, and suddenly I shall come and fill this city. I shall come in great
and powerful waves, and this city shall cry out to Me. Cities in this nation
shall cry out to Me. I am coming, and I will tear down one city, and to heal
another. I shall destroy one city, and I shall raise up another. I shall
elevate one city, and I shall humble another. For I am already on the move in America.I am already on the move in cities. I am
already on the move in churches. Some churches shall close their doors, and
others shall open them. For I am searching the hearts and minds, and I am
revealing to them what they have made in their own eyes.
I say unto you, that
I have a House that is purified. I have a House that is sanctified. I have a
House that is separated unto Me, and I see her, in intimacy. I know them by
name. I shall fan My Name in her even more. I shall fan the revelation of My
Name higher in her midst. I shall fan who I am, even in this place. People
shall come from everywhere unto Me, for I shall draw them to meet Me, face to
face. I am going to expand this place. I am going to expand My Name. I am going
to expand in this city. I am going to move in unusual ways, and many shall fear
the things that shall come upon them this year, but this city shall know that I
am in the midst of her, for I am in the midst of her, for I shall save her.
They shall know that it is I, that defends her.
You shall speak for
Me. You shall call this city to Me, and you shall speak My Words to them, even
through prayer. For none shall stand before you in that position of prayer, and
none shall overwhelm you, nor over come you. None shall be able to remove you
from your place in prayer, though many will fight against you, they shall not
stand! My angelic Captains also stand with you here at your command. No weapon,
and no words, and no assignment arrayed against you shall even succeed. For as
you pray, I shall burn them up with the words that I will speak from your
mouths in prayer, as weeds.
You are My Remnant
Seeds, and you are Holy unto Me, and you are a Stump of Righteousness. You are
a Firstfruits unto Me. I have put My Foundation Stone in you, and I shall build
you, for you are true. I shall look through you and you shall see things new.
You shall know that I shall be an enemy to your enemy, and I shall be a friend
to your friends. I shall speak My Words through you that shall heal and mend.
For I shall restore things that have been lost and stolen from this place. I
shall bring them back. I shall heal them. I shall give them Grace to seek My
Face, for you shall see Me restore this place, for I have tested you in the
battle, and you have sought my Face.
You have the right
and the grace and the anointing to seek for the welfare of this city. I have
called you to this city. You shall succeed in prayer, and you shall stand, and
you shall not falter in this land. Though cities shall fall, and even some
shall be destroyed and shall never be rebuilt again, I say, this city shall
stand. It shall be changed, because My judgments are in the land, but this city
shall stand, it's foundation shall endure, and you shall rebuild her. You shall
rebuild her pure, for I am coming to pour out My Mercy on her.
My Timepiece is in My
Hand, and I have been showing you increments. I have been showing you steps, on
My Watch Band. My Timepiece is in My Hand, Children, and you are stepping out
My Plan, day by day, watch by watch. You are synchronized to My Watches. I have
a Timepiece in My Hand. I hold you on the watches, in My hand. By My Watches,
you shall stand, for I have shut you in with Me. I have assigned these days to
you. I have assigned these prayer shifts to you. I have assigned these prayer
assignments to you, for this is My gift to you, and My honor to you, for I have
called you, and have chosen you. This is part of My plan that I have
established, that you would pray on behalf of man.
I shall come, and My
Fan is in My Hand, and My Flames shall get hotter, and My Flames shall go
further, they shall blow across this land. It is not for devastation, Children,
I am building something new, out of the midst of what I will do. You shall see
some destruction, you shall see shaking, and you shall see construction, but
you shall also see Me making. My anointing of Jeremiah is in this place. For I
have Cities of Refuge in your land that will be formidable in the days to come.
They will be Fortresses of Truth that shall endure, even in the midst of
hardship and testing and trial. There shall be glory and grace, and the people
shall have enduring smiles, for they shall know My Habitation, and they shall
know Me in the midst of the Fires.
They shall shout with
Me, they shall run with Me, they shall know My liberty in the flames with Me.
For they shall walk with Me in deep fiery intimacy. They shall walk with Me,
and know Me, as I am. I have called you to be as a Furnace of Intercession for
this land. You shall interceded as a flame before Me, in My Hand. I shall hear
you. I shall answer you, and you shall surely stand.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I
know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and
plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final
outcome. 12 Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I
will hear and heed you. 13 Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me
[as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
14 I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will release you from captivity
and gather you from all the nations and all the places to which I have driven
you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I caused
you to be carried away captive.
Jeremiah 29:7 And seek
(inquire for, require, and request) the peace and welfare of the city to which
I have caused you to be carried away captive; and pray to the Lord for it, for
in the welfare of [the city in which you live] you will have welfare.
After more prayer:
I saw Jesus standing
in heaven. He had fiery torches burning inside His eyes. The fiery torches then
came out from His eyes, and then He took them and began to give them to the
angels who stood waiting., The angels then took them and descended with them
down to the earth below. Jesus then said, "I have begunMy Fiery Work."
There were 12
different types of torches in the angels hands.
1. Torches of Desire
2. Torches of Zeal
3. Torches of Truth
4. Torches of Justice
5. Torches of Honor
6. Torches of Healing
7. Torches of Judgment
8. Torches of Love
9. Torches of Wisdom
10. Torches of
11. Torches of
12. Torches of Vision
Revelations 1:12 Then
I turned to see [whose was] the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I
saw seven golden lampstands, 13 And in the midst of the lampstands [One] like a
Son of Man, clothed with a robe which reached to His feet and with a girdle of
gold about His breast. 14 His head and His hair were white like white wool, [as
white] as snow, and His eyes [flashed] like a flame of fire. 15 His feet glowed
like burnished (bright) bronze as it is refined in a furnace, and His voice was
like the sound of many waters. 16 In His right hand He held seven stars, and
from His mouth there came forth a sharp two-edged sword, and His face was like
the sun shining in full power at midday.
Daniel 10: 5 I lifted
up my eyes and looked, and behold, a man clothed in linen, whose loins were
girded with pure gold of Uphaz. 6 His body also was [a golden luster] like
beryl, his face had the appearance of lightning, his eyes were like flaming
torches, his arms and his feet like glowing burnished bronze, and the sound of
his words was like the noise of a multitude [of people or the roaring of the
The angels took them
to plant within people, to plant within churches, to plant within cities, to
plant within nations.
Some torches went
into people heads, some went into their hearts, and some went into their hands.
Some people refused
them, and the angels gave them to others who already had torches.
The torches job was
to reveal their true substance, their works, and their fruit.
When the torches went
into some people, it would cause a purging and a sanctification to occur, that
would allow truth to spring up within them, bring to them a greater clarity and
restore vision back to them.
The angels would
plant them in churches, and it would examine their foundation. Some would
receive them, and they were ignited into a greater flame; and some would try to
pull them out, but they could not, and they would be burned up totally with no
fruit remaining. Some churches would be burned up by the torches, and something
new would arise from them afterwards that was greater than before.
The angels that took
them to cities, planted them there, and it would burn into the cities foundation.
Some cities would then be turned upside down by the Lord, and some would be
brought to ruin, but many became great Beacons of Light. Some cities became
great Furnaces of Prayer unto the Lord. Some cities became Melting Pots.
I then saw a great
arm and hand bring a torch to the Statue of Liberty. The hand then lowered it to the hem
of her dress, and it caught on fire. The Lord then said that America's
garment is soiled and it needed cleansing. So, He was going to take her through
a Season of Cleansing, so that he can put clean garments on her again. Just
like Joshua the priest did when He was brought before the Lord.
Zechariah 3:2 And the
Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, O Satan! Even the Lord, Who [now and
habitually] chooses Jerusalem,
rebuke you! Is not this [returned captive Joshua] a brand plucked out of the
fire? 3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments and was standing before the
Angel [of the Lord]. 4 And He spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, Take
away the filthy garments from him. And He said to [Joshua], Behold, I have
caused your iniquity to pass from you, and I will clothe you with rich apparel.
The angels then took
torches into nations. I saw them be planted deep into their soils. Turmoil,
unrest, and chaos would erupt as the work of the torches widened. If the nation
responded to the Lord in it, the nation would be brought into order and rest.
The Lord has begun a
Fiery Work on July3rd, and I thought it was interesting that we celebrate with
Fire Works on the 4th of July.....it's an anointing of fire and it's a sign of
change! it's an anointing of Righteousness to ring change to the earth, for the
sake of the Harvest to shortly be brought in.
