Women's Aglow: The Spark that Lit the Flame

by Chad Taylor

** This year I was invited to speak at three Women's Aglow meetings in Central California (this was my first time speaking at any Aglow meetings). During the meetings I heard such a clarion word from the Lord for their ministry, thus the title to this prophecy/article. It is a mighty crescendo for ministries such as Women's Aglow as their complete destiny comes into the crosshairs of God's impeccable timing and will.

The Esther Factor, The Gallows, Will Now Be Their Gain

"As calamity and international intrigue continues to rise and men's hearts fail because of fear (Luke 21:26), a secret weapon is about to be launched as in the days of old," says the Lord. "Even as I kept Esther hidden until the moment of Israel's crisis, so have I hidden another. For in this generation an anointing is resident in My handmaidens that will soon crush satan under their feet (Romans 16:20).

"For I will cause an authority to rise within their ranks that will usurp the leviathan and open the ancient gates. For in this hour those that have remained faithful to My call shall be the spark that lights the flame. Though they have diminished in number and many have wagged their heads and exclaimed, 'What will come of them?' Now will they rise up in rank and number and lead My army into battle. Their anthem will be, 'The sword of the Lord and of Gideon!'" (Judges 7:18).

The Promise Keeper Was Only a Seed...Now it's Time to Give Birth!

"Even as other movements have garnered the attention of kings and presidents and one million was their mark, I tell you that you will exceed these numbers as a double portion of favor and power with God and with men comes upon you (Genesis 32:28).

"Laws and legislation will be swayed as the sheer numbers of those that rally with you fill the city streets and converge on the epicenters of the world. You will be a force to be reckoned with as these ministries that are even now established on the earth begin to prevail. Previous ministries before you and those that currently abide with you were merely the seed that was sown. Now the time of increase and birth has come.

"Your prevailing prayers as you converge on capitol cities of the world will conceive results that will be staggering. That magnitude of impact will translate entire regions out of darkness into My Kingdom in hours and days (Colossians 1:13). Nations will be born in a day."

Who hath heard such a thing? Who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.—Isaiah 66:8

Look to the Olympics in 2010 - the Women Will Prevail!

"For even in the secular realm and the fields of competition, this anointing will be clearly seen as records and standards are broken. An anointing to prevail shall be upon My handmaidens, and like Miriam they will dance on the fields of victory and triumph of every sort and kind (Exodus 15:20). This anointing will saturate and permeate existing realms and many that have been broken and shunned will suddenly find favor.

"Present doctrine that has quenched the spirit of My handmaidens shall be overturned and the pervasiveness of it will now fall away. Many women will be unmasked as this anointing overturns centuries of dogma that has kept them hidden and enslaved. Watch and see if this is not the spark that lit the flame," says the Lord!

"As the gun of grace goes off these ministries will explode from the blocks and canopy the world with My fire. They will be trailblazers of a new era and season as the nations are steered into My heart and plan. The race has begun."

...let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet...—Joel 2:16

The Vision of the Sparks and the Hand of the Lord

A clear and present vision followed this word. I saw the hand of the Lord unfurl from a clenched fist and inside were bright burning sparks. As I looked at this site before Me the face of the Lord leaned toward the sparks and He blew on them. These sparks went from His Hand into the nations of the earth. I could see a few of the sparks as they landed in Australia, New Zealand, Holland, Zimbabwe, Brazil, Canada and the United States.

Many more were caught in the winds of the Holy Spirit and were carried to divers and sundry places throughout the planet, burning and igniting as they hit. I heard the Spirit of the Lord say:

"These are my end time ministries; my end time handmaidens and they are much different than many would suspect. They will be like Esther was to My enemies, and the gallows will become the catapult to bring them before kings and queens. The very thing that came against them shall now become the means to which I bring them to the uttermost parts of the earth."

My Bride Will Be Found in the Harvest Field, Not the Dressing Room

"They that presently desire to be intimate with Me will find their threshing floor; their harvest field."

And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace. And she said unto her, Go, my daughter. And she went, and came, and gleaned in the field after the reapers...—Ruth 2:2-3

"For surely the beginning of My harvest has come and those called out will find Me in the field as Ruth found Boaz. Who can hear for the time to come?"says the Lord. "Who can hear for the time to come?"

So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in law, with her, which returned out of the country of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.—Ruth 1:22

"For those called in this hour will be My Bride running from the dressing room into the threshing floor and they will find their inheritance there (Psalm 2:8). The trumpet is now sounding."

THE SECRET STATES ARE NOW “A STATE OF THE UNION”

As we were crisscrossing the nation twice in one week I began to see different states and present spiritual insights often not seen when flying overhead.  As we spent many hours passing through the vast state of Wyoming I heard this statement from the Lord numerous times, “THE SECRET STATES ARE NOW A STATE OF THE UNION!". 

These “Secret States” or states of this nation that are often forgotten and lower in population density Montana, Wyoming, North and South Dakota are becoming  God’s “STATE OF THE UNION”.  From these overlooked and often less desirable states is about to come strategy that will solve many of this nation’s dilemmas such as oil, energy, and space.  Like Solomon’s Stables resources are biting at the bit so to speak to be released and are soon to leap from the stalls.  At the Wedding of Cana God has saved His best for last.

WYOMING A WATERSHED OF GOD’S GRACE

A place historically known for its wild frontier and sprawling landscape is a hidden geyser of God’s resources.  It will one day rival any other source of oil in this nation.  Pipe lines of oil will stretch from Wyoming to as far away as Texas providing energy to many foreign countries.  This “Quad-State” of massive reserve Montana, Wyoming, North and South Dakota will become a hub of massive resource and global energy.  It will also be transformed from an unlikely place for people to live into a booming Mecca of employment and provision. 

MONTANA A MOUNAIN OF WORSHIP AND WARFARE

In the state of Montana a union between worship and warfare will be established that will be fuel for the fire of industry and breakthrough.  A warlike spirit of intercession will rise up defying modern trends of passivity and pleasure that is often oblivious to the sudden shifts in the Spirit.  The lines of demarcation will be clear as Montana takes flight from the fields of obscurity to set the next precedent for worship, prophecy and prosperity.  Missions will be set in motion on a global scale from these 4 states setting the standard for years to come. 

NORTH DAKOTA AN OUTPOST OF WORLD MISSIONS

As the economic and spiritual landscape shifts North Dakota will emerge as an end-time powerhouse of resourcefulness.  With Joseph like qualities North Dakota will help steer the nation in famine and crisis.  A compulsion for divine compassion will be the spiritual rudder driving her to the uttermost parts of the earth.  An international identity will emerge as commerce and trade become common place.  A bridge to Asia and the Middle East will be built creating a trans-pacific jet stream of spiritual renewal and industry.  The day of your visitation has dawned.

SOUTH DAKOTA GOD’S SECRET PLACE REVEALED

National attention will mount as this hidden state becomes a pearl of great price.  Its stock and value shall rise exponentially as commerce and trade increase.   For in these places they will say “It’s an anomaly” who can explain it?  Who could have predicted it?  For in the very places that were overlooked will now become an epicenter in some locations even over night.  As the Railroad blazed a trail through these states in its history so will the future be marked by groundbreaking moments in travel and export.  Speed and efficiency shall be common place in Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota.  THE SECRET STATES ARE NOW A STATE OF THE UNION! 

 

GOD'S DOROTHY AND THE CHURCH'S OZ: THE LONG ROAD TO REALITY

by Chad Taylor
Jun 25, 2009

In the original book by L. Frank Baum "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" published in 1900, the "wizard" appears to each of the characters differently or is at least perceived differently. To Dorothy, the Wizard is a giant head; the Scarecrow sees a beautiful woman; the Tin Woodman sees a ravenous beast; the Cowardly Lion sees a ball of fire. Each one sees exactly what they want to see but they all fail to see who the "wizard" really is - a fake. He is not the "Great Oz" at all, but an old man that travelled before them in a hot air balloon. The burning desire to reach their destination obscured reality and drove them to see what they only wanted to see. Once reality came crashing down they were forced to continue their journey without the mirage of smoke and mirrors and special effects. They now had to accept the truth that what they were so desperately seeking for their own self-fulfillment is exactly what they already had in the first place. Today, the current wide spread movement with it's promises of grand spiritual experiences has become a "The Emerald City" or "City of Emeralds" found in Baum's novel. We have become the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion. Our desire for something more than what already is has led us down a yellow brick road of false experiences and sleight of hand. The truth however is just the opposite, it is a world in deep need of a Savior and His matchless salvation recorded centuries ago and bound in Scripture. It is a Church that needs to navigate back to the shores of reality no matter how far she has drifted and anchor again in the bedrock of biblical truth and light.

Gone it seems is the day that it was more popular to be a suffering Christian than a satisfied one. When Hebrews Chp. 11 was read it was with awe and admiration as we saw firsthand from the sidelines of history those that embraced the ultimate call - their life for Christs'. To them it was a guarantee of a "better resurrection" not an easier one.  They were a rare breed that garnered the incredible title of, "whom the world was not worthy".  "Destitute, afflicted, and tormented" were not taboo but medals of honor on the breastplate of these historic Christians.  Today, personalities and personas are heaped upon us to such an extent we have created icons out of Branham's and Allen's who in the end, were left with shame and tragedy; misguided and disillusioned. Would you rather don the mantle of mistakes or the humble attire of martyrs and missionaries?  Surprisingly most today would chose the latter.  Dissipating it seems are the days when it was more esteemed to be a Jim Elliot who gave his life on the frontlines of violent mission fields or even a Hudson Taylor who poured his life out on the daunting shores of dark China with no accolades or conference invitations. His epitaph should have read, "To live is Christ and to die is gain..."

Paul the Apostle's day the greatest honor was to suffer. Power was not handed out on a "fast track" or a conference line, a catered lunch buffet, or some other surreal spiritual experience the reality was a holy invitation to the gauntlet of suffering and persecution which Paul wore well. The greatest joy in the Bible was discovered in suffering!  It was not a last ditch option on the ladder of revelation but rather the opposite - it was the first step into any genuine experience with God.  Suffering and self-denial was the undertow of everything that Jesus spoke and did and it sliced through the enamored crowds like butter.  It was the only precursor to really following Jesus and to be His disciple, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me."  (Luke 9:23)  It was not a loudly claimed "third heaven experience" or floating orbs in a Kodak snapshot that qualified you to be His disciple.  It was rather a self-denying life of less privilege but more power to change the very world you lived in and salvage human souls.  "If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself..."  What follows this self denial?  "...and take up his cross daily, and follow me."  A cross is not a life absent of suffering or trial but rather a staggering choice every Christian must make to suffer and meet trials and tribulation head on.  You cannot "go after Him" unless you are completely willing to "suffer with Him." 

As this paradox lives itself out in the Christian's life a power and glory is released that is unprecedented.  Today a facade affronts us at every turn alluring us in it's claims of angels, gold dust and jewels.  Finally, like Hansel and Gretel the Church has become a candy-coated house filled with every indulgence and flavor.  Witchcraft has seduced multitudes into a hypnotic false peace as the world teeters on the brink of utter destruction.  Just as the story of Hansel and Gretel the witch lures the children into the Gingerbread House with all of it's candy and sweets only to trick them and ultimately try to eat them herself.  The devil comes to kill, rob and destroy the true message of Jesus Christ replacing it with "another gospel".  The preaching of God's Kingdom in America is an endangered species in a Jurassic Park of bloated promises and exaggerated experiences leaving millions ignorant of the Suffering Christ and His message of true salvation. It's hard to be with the "least of these" when air conditioned cruise ships with grandiose promises of His presence is your alternative. Paul the Apostle's revelation of Jesus was staggering as he recorded these words, "Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered..." (Heb 5:8)
 
THE DOCTRINE OF MANTLES: THE "OZ EFFECT"

Like the characters in the "Wizard of Oz" we too are seeking desperately for "gifts" or attributes we perceive our spirituality to be unbearable without.  The veils of deception appear "holy" as the face of false spiritual experiences parade behind the curtain claiming to be something it is not.  Like the old man perpetrating to be "The Great One" there is nothing that he can offer except what we perceive he can.  He offers hearts, brains and courage but the reality is it is moth eaten dreams in a closet of man made mantles.  Modern movements of our day seem to have a closet full of these for the taking as they defer to doctrines of men and not God. Paul exhorted the early Church to "put on Christ".  "For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ." (Gal 3:27). He went even further to enforce this when he confronted this doctrine in the city of Corinth, "Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?" (1 Cor 1:12-13). Who then is Branham and who is Kuhlman and who is Lake? Who is Allen and Dowie?  Many of these modern day Christian icons died in complete deception often believing they were "Elijah" or some other biblical character. Many of these doctrines have found there way into the Christian mainstream again as thousands follow the yellow brick road of false promises for a "mantle" or anointing. 

Zion, Illinois founded by John Alexander Dowie was a not a Christian institution of divine inspiration but rather a seed bed of disillusionment that became an Emerald City of false hope. A good intentioned man fell off the cliff of egotism and false doctrine claiming to be "Elijah the Restorer" founding the "Christian Catholic Church". Have we changed much today?  Rather than "put on Christ" and His anointing we offer the mantles of men before the masses and like "The Wizard of Oz" we hide behind curtains promising this and that. In the stark streets of the world these names mean nothing, their triumphs and defeats are mere echoes to the One who died and rose again.  In the Muslim backdrop of the Middle East promises of mantles and mysterious anointing of Etter, McPherson, or Kuhlman will have no effect; your only answer in a maelstrom of death and persecution will be the Name above all names- Jesus Christ. "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:13). The doctrine of mantles is on shifting sand and is a mirage to the true Glory of God found only in Christ Jesus . The trumpeting of this message will soon fall on deaf ears as an army of disciples take center stage who have learned to worship God in "Spirit and in Truth". Read further in the Gospel of Luke, "for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." (Luke 16:15).  The "Oz Effect" is dimming and the necessity of Jesus Christ will prevail and His anointing and Spirit will be enough. 

A "WONDERLAND" OR GOD'S KINGDOM?

The milk of self-indulgence and Christian pleasure has hypnotized many into a dream world of fixations, fake visitations and a slide show of special effects that have left the crowds numb with false expectation. The modern day minister has become the "Mad Hatter" with endless innuendos of glory and power that is never on the radar of altering the state of the real world around them. Like a gaudy B-rated movie that promised a blockbuster showing but in the end is a cheap seat in a dark theatre of men's imagination. Jesus is not the leading role in this production rather a million manifestations marching to the beat of a strange drum have taken center stage. Scripture is so misconstrued it's difficult to discern fact from fiction as this science experiment gone wrong is unveiled. A Frankenstein of doctrine is unfurled with incomprehensible side effects as Jesus is left on the afterburner of this modern jet stream claiming to be prophetic. Yet behind the scenes is stirring a roar about to be heard above the din of imaginations and idolatry; another company of "Jesus Freaks", martyrs, and modern day missionaries. They will have the doctrine of Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. They comprehend as all the saints that stood before them that He alone is Way, the Truth and the Life; there is no other conceivable way into God's Kingdom but through Him. They will refuse to eat the candy and dainties of present "kings and kingdoms" but will be catapulted past the dispensationalist into a real genuine Christ experience.  Rather than follow the "white rabbit" of current movements that lead down a endless hole of strange experiences they will stand strong on the foundation of Jesus Christ. 

The vision of harvest that Jesus illustrated will be their mainstay as they crash down on the shores of every living creature and Preach His Gospel. They will be a church mature and grown up. They will desire the bone and marrow of His purpose rather than the watered down milk of pleasure and wantonness. "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe..." (Heb 5:12-13). They will have the diet of their Master - "Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work..."  What is His work?!  Read the following passage, "Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest..." (John 4:35). This army coming now to the front and center will have one driving passion and purpose, TO FINISH HIS WORK. "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." (Matt 24:14).  They will conclude that the only way "home" is to get past the vernacular of their day and into the Kingdom of God.  To "seek first His Kingdom" will be an all consuming compulsion moving them into the deep waters of spiritual transformation. 

PASSION FOR PLEASURE: THE TRAGIC EXCHANGE

The road to glory is not paved with good intentions and false promises but rather a place of splendid suffering where Christ is revealed in us, "the hope of glory". Let's pray then that we are those "Jesus Freaks", modern day martyrs and a Church that has matured no longer influenced by the infantile teaching of our day. Let's follow the steps of Jesus and the rare company of missionaries who gave their own blood, families, desires and appetites to a greater cause and refused to be a casualty of dispensation. Let's heed the words of another martyr as we race against the clock as our present age gallops to the finish line, "I no longer depend on pleasant impulses to bring me before the Lord. I must rather respond to principles I know to be right, whether I feel them to be enjoyable or not..." (Jim Elliot 1927 - 1956.)  Jesus' passion is still the gospel preached to the poor, the captives and prisoner. What is ours?  Ask the Lord now to remove the shadows of shifting pleasure dressed in a spiritual affront that has eclipsed the real Light and Truth and His love will pierce the darkness.  You will return "home" to a gospel according to Jesus and reignite your first love.  Clear the table of books, c.d.'s and the mountain of distraction and reintroduce yourself to a harvest bursting from the ground around you.  The gravity of conferences and the "wonderland" of spiritual experiences will not intoxicate your senses any longer, you will be on fire with new purpose and wisdom. 
 
"And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.  But many that are first shall be last; and the last first..." (Mark 10:29-31).

THE SWINE FLU PROPHECY AND PENDING EVENTS

by Chad Taylor
May 13th, 2009
 
"And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them. Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked..." (Luke 8:32-33).

During a prophetic worship session on our recent 5 city tour in Southern Oregon and Northern California a very peculiar word came forth during the extended worship. I began to the hear the Lord booming in my Spirit and I began to publicly prophesy as the music continued, "Do you see this swine flu as swine infect human beings? But I tell you tonight it's the swine that should be infected with our deliverance! It's the swine that should be infected with our deliverance and disease! When Legion was delivered from his demons it was the swine that carried his demons over the cliff and perished; you will see a sign and a wonder as a great wave of deliverance hits the earth. Even as the enemy has used the swine to infect humans so I say to you now just the opposite will happen in the Spirit!"

The scripture in Luke became paramount as this word was being declared, "Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked..." It was not happenchance in Jewish culture that the demons went into the swine and perished. In God's Law swine were unclean and were forbidden to eat or touch. (Lev. 11:7). Later becoming the vessels of which Legion's demons came out and driven off the ledge to perish. The very object of this current global crisis was a sign of deliverance and freedom in biblical proportions.

THE POWER OF OPPOSITES: THE JOSEPH FACTOR

There is much to comprehend in this short scripture in Luke chp. 8. The demons begged Jesus to suffer them to enter the swine - which He did. "Then went out the devils from the man..." The unclean spirits went into the unclean animals and both perished in the sea. As these events unfold around the world there is a spiritual dynamic taking place. The Spirit of the Lord is being released during this time to bring deliverance to nations that are in great political, social, and spiritual peril. Mexico has been gripped in a deadly drug war as the government desperately attempts to regain some semblance of moral control. Drug Lords and their henchmen are fighting ruthlessly against any moral and spiritual change. Ultimately the Spirit of Deliverance is being poured out upon Mexico. In the spiritual landscape of polar opposites we see the origins of what the world is calling the "swine flu". In God's providence it is a divine set up to lead millions into salvation and deliverance. In such a historic moment the Joseph factor comes into play. Prayerfully and earnestly read the following scripture and promise and apply it to these current events:

"But as for you, you thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive." (Gen 50:20). 

The end result in God's plan was not to bring death and destruction but rather to "save much people alive". The law of spiritual opposites begin to play out in the earth. What the devil meant for evil God's final intent is to make it good. in a time of global famine the will of God prevailed and raised up a people to "open all the storehouses" and bring deliverance to the nation. You see, this current crisis is really the divine stage set for the "Josephs" or the deliverers to take center stage and SHINE;  a unparalleled time to lead millions to Jesus Christ and His salvation. The power of the Cross and the Gospel become second to none in grave times such as these. As what appears to be evil sweeps the globe it also acts as a spiritual siege crashing in the doors of resistance making way for the preaching of the Gospel, healing and deliverance. "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose..." (Rom 8:28)

THE SWINE ARE ONLY A SIGN OF PENDING REVIVAL

And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want. And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him. And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. And he arose, and came to his father..." (Luke 15:14-20). The swine were the final "curtain call" for the revival to follow as the prodigal son returned home. As we face famine, pandemic, floods, fires and all other sort of peril could it be any other outcome than what we read in the Gospel? Could it be a great coming home is on the horizon as millions return to Jesus in the backdrop of epic peril? On the scriptural landscape this was exactly what occurred. "And he arose, and came to his father..."

This "arising" is recorded in other prophetic moments in the bible as well, "Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the 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." (Isa 60:1-2) As this current crisis continues it will only be a line of demarcation for revival as nations such as Mexico are prepared for sweeping revival. Where you see the swine, remember it is SIGN of revival soon to follow. "And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him. Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel..." (Mark 5:18-20).

MOSES IN THE WILDERNESS AND THE PREACHING OF THE CROSS

And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived." (Num 21:8-9). The very thing that was "meant for evil" now became a symbol of deliverance as Moses lifted up the bronze serpent in the wilderness. In the same way the preaching of the Gospel is now more crucial than ever as evil runs rampant. Nations that have been resistant and violent toward the message of Jesus will now look to Him as their only hope. If there has ever been a time to return to the "preaching of the cross" it is right now as a global stage is set to bring deliverance, healing and salvation. "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God." (1 Cor 1:18).

This will be a crossroads for the world wide church as well as it is faced with unprecedented crisis and fear and turn to the only viable answer, "The preaching of the Cross." It will become to us and the world around us "the Power of God" like no other time. in places such as Mexico City what was once a place of deep opposition to change are transformed into a divine stage of massive healing and deliverance as "the devils went out of the man, and entered into the swine..." The day of the evangelist has returned as a Spirit of deliverance and salvation is poured out on all flesh. In this crisis it is our shining hour. "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:14-15).

THE BLOOD BATH IN MEXICO WILL BECOME BLOOD ON THE DOOR POSTS

And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses..." (Ex 12:7) In Egypt many people perished and yet God's Passover was instituted and more were saved. In Mexico as the very moral fabric seems to be tearing apart a time of "Passover" will occur. Many cities, villages and regions will become places of salvation and great deliverance. Key leaders even as the Pharaoh did in Egypt shall relinquish their control over the people and secede from darkness to the Lord. Entire regions will beseech ministries to come and preach the gospel as their only recourse in famine, flu and violence. Jesus will be lifted up!

Many of these events will not be publicized as mighty miracles raise the dead at a rate incomparable in modern history in areas plagued by current crisis'. In other cities it will be published on television channels and every means of communication sounding something like this "prayer and preaching will occur and such and such location...city sanctioned prayer meeting today at 12pm..."  It will become even mandatory that entire regions attend these meetings to stem the sickness and disease.

Virtually unknown evangelists will be harbingers of great hope and power as the Cross of Jesus Christ is preached. Great evangelists of the past will be replicated a thousand-fold as entire cities become center-stage of grassroots revival overflowing into every public place with the sheer expectation of what God will do next. Many ministers who have faded from the public eye will now be thrust back into the frontlines reenlisted as God makes a world wide call to arms to "fight the good fight of faith. Remember,
"The Swine are only a sign of pending revival..."

PREEMINENT AND PREEMPTIVE PROPHECIES AS HISTORY UNFOLDS: ALBUQUERQUE AND BISMARCK ND

 
by Chad Taylor
 
 
ALBUQUERQUE, NM.: GROUND ZERO
 
At a prophetic conference in Albuquerque, NM during a intense moment in worship a profound insight into the history of the city and the United States was revealed.  As I began to prophesy it was like a covert well of critical information was uncapped.  I began to prophesy, "Something covert, in the night!  Something under cover in secret was done in this city. It brought a anti-Semitic spirit and has cursed the region and even the state of New Mexico.  Something was done in secret like Judas for his 30 pieces of silver.  In 1944, 1945, 1946 something was done in this city in secret under the cover of the night.  The Lord is revealing it now that this curse can be broken. It brought a anti-Semitic spirit into this state..."  The prophesy continued for several more minutes as the Lord was breaking up fallow ground of historic relevance that we would later learn was paramount for breakthrough in Albuquerque and the state.  The following day a native of New Mexico brought me some profound information she had researched and printed up.  I was flabbergasted.  It was common history to many or at least it was known history, but the dates, locations and background were astounding in light of the previous nights prophecy.
 
Julius Rosenberg was the son of a Polish garment worker living on New York's Lower East Side.  Julius's success in the study of Hebrew led many to believe he would later become a Rabbi.  However, by the age of 16 he was a committed member of the New York City College's Young Communist League. Later marrying Ethel and in the fall of 1940 he took a job as a civilian employee of the U. S. Army Signal Corps.  Late in 1943 Julius Rosenberg began his espionage against the United State of America during the World War.  Rosenberg began to contact key individuals that would be necessary to infiltrate the Los Alamos base where the nuclear bomb was being constructed.  What is now known from popular movies and history as the "Manhattan Project".  Rosenberg's brother-in-law David Greenglass was assigned to work as a soldier-machinist in Los Alamos and the dark secrets and espionage began which would lead to treason and death.  Greenglass prepared handwritten notes and sketches relating to a high-explosive lens mold being developed in a Los Alamos laboratory .
 
Twice in 1945 a British physicist named Fuchs met with a Soviet agent named "Raymond" and provided notes on the working design for the atomic bomb. By June 1, authorities knew of a soldier, stationed at Los Alamos, married with no children, who Gold or code name "Raymond" paid $500 to in September of 1945 in Albuquerque in exchange for information about the implosion lens for the atomic bomb. This soldier was none other than the brother-in-law of Julius Rosenberg - David Greenglass.   In 1997, Alexsandr Feklisov, Rosenberg's Soviet control came forward to describe his meetings with Julius in the 1940's.  Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed shortly after 8 p.m. in Sing-Sing Prison on June 19, 1953... 
 
After this information was revealed during the Saturday evening session at Glory Bound Church in Albuquerque we began to declare a breakthrough and healing from these climatic historic events.  The Rosenberg's were both Jewish which consequently resulted in a anti-Semitic spirit to take root in New Mexico fostering racism, poverty, and violence.  Prophecy is truly a "two-edge sword" and can be wielded against strongholds and curses that the Holy Spirit reveals as a result of travesties in the past.  Judas Iscariot also acted in espionage against Jesus for a mere 30 pieces of silver which resulted in the purchasing of the "Potter's Field" after his own death by the Jewish priests.  "And after they had consulted together, they bought with them the potter's field, to be a burying place for strangers. For this the field was called Haceldama, that is, the field of blood, even to this day..."  (Matt. 27:3-8).

A spirit of rejection and  abandonment is the consequences of a "Potter's Field" in the earth.  It becomes, "a burying place of strangers. The field of blood, even to this day..."  Do you have a "Potter's Field" in your city?  Is their secrets and broken promises just under the surface of your history?  Chances are, yes.  This is why entire regions, states, and territories are bemoaning under spiritual stress and curses resulting in suicides, crime, injustices, prejudice, hate crimes.  Ultimately religious hierarchies accept the "pay-offs" and ignore the most obvious and turn a deaf ear to the poor and lost in their proximity.  Every city has its "Potter's Field" bought in the spirit of compromise, indifference and naivety.  In Albuquerque we took one giant step toward restoration and revival which will result in a harvest of salvation from all those that were lost.  I pray the blinders are taken from all of our eyes and that the Lord would arm you with a two-edged sword of revelation to set the captives free and heal the land.  Albuquerque, NM is just one example of why we are prophetic and what the outcome of every prophetic conference of meeting should be - powerful truth revealed that sets cities free from captivity!  Find your Potter's Field.
 
 
GOD SAID, "TAKE THE STAGE!" AND TELL THEM I LOVE THEM!
 
Last year (2008) I reported on a phenomenal moment that transpired on a public stage in Bismarck, ND. at the Municipal Park with approximately two hundred or more in attendance. I never told you the rest of the story... This is was not a pre-planned Christian event or anything remotely sponsored by some Christian organization.  It was a secular annual "Hippie Fest" put on by various bands and sponsors drawing a local sub-culture of young and old alike who found a familiarity in the genre of music.  It was a nostalgic event that was advertised in the local newspaper and attended by many.  Someone in the conference at Solomon's Rest where I was speaking insisted we go "check it out".  This leading was easy to follow as the entire conference and already emptied out into the streets with banners and bibles in tow and were marching through the downtown streets.
 
A few of us went the couple blocks to the park; as we entered the "Hippie Fest" a myriad of colors exploded from the stage with its loud grinding music with smoke machines billowing a haze of strange shapes .  The smell of incense wafted through the air as people talked and mingled. We were met with welcoming gestures and smiling faces as we simply began to pray and worship Jesus in our small group from the conference.  As I stood there I began to look to the Lord heart, "What do we do now?  How can we have the greatest impact here other than simply being a light?"  Suddenly the Lord spoke to me crystal clear, " TAKE THE STAGE AND TELL THEM "I LOVE THEM!".  I stood there stunned.  What Lord?! Tell them what?  They don't know me, they are not affiliated with our conference or religious event!  What will I say?  The Lord's word went through me like electricity, "TAKE THE STAGE AND TELL THEM "I LOVE THEM!"
 
The reality of it hit me hard as I prayed how this could be done? The last band of the night was playing their set which was appropriately named, "Gypsy Foot".  I was profoundly aware that the Lord wanted to let every last person know that He loved them and was would reach them right where they were.  I suddenly had a epiphany - EVERY public place of gathering in the secular world was simply predestined stages set for God's love and salvation to be proclaimed.  But how often do we pass by them never aware of our responsibility to share His love or even worse we avoid these places all together? 
 
I went to directly to the sound booth adjacent to the main stage and told the sound man my strategy.  I told him, "I travel the nation declaring love and grace, why not this stage tonight?  Let's make an event a movement!"  He was excited and told me he would find the main promoter and tell her right now.  A few minutes passed as we all stood and prayed intensely for this door of utterance to not close.  Finally the promoter approached me and asked me what I wanted to do.  I told her.  She asked me again, "What do you want to do?"  I looked at her in the eyes and over the sound of the music and flashing neon lights I said, "I want to declare God's love on this stage."  She looked at me and simply replied, "YOU CAN CLOSE THE SHOW!"  Suddenly the doors of this secular rock concert was flung open and I was given total liberty.  I was breathless as the words of Jesus to His disciples echoed in my heart, "But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you..."  (Matt 10:19-20).  It was no longer me up on that stage it was the Lord speaking through me and sharing His intense immeasurable love.  I was on fire.
 
I took the stage as the last instrument wailed and was met with hugs an admiration from the band.  They had no idea what I was about to say.  I looked at the hungry crowd and the people locked in on me.  I opened my mouth, "I travel this nation declaring God's love.  And contrary to popular opinion God is still a God of Love and Peace.  A hippie two thousand years ago made a profound statement, "YOU are the Light of the world!"  I pointed directly and the crowd and repeated, "YOU are the light of the world!"  The crowd broke out in crazy applause and shouting.  Some even yelled, "Amen!".  God moved.  As I stood on the stage and declared His Light behind me in the ball field hundreds of "lights" were released in these transparent balls with tiny candles in them.  It was part of the pre-planned event!  Lights literally ascended into the dark sky of Bismarck, ND.  The light is not confined or even defined by a "church" or a church building with all of its trappings.  No, its in the hearts of the people who populate those cities. They are under bridges, in local parks, riding their skateboards and playing their secular music.  They cannot identify with all of our trends and popular Christian staples.  But they can identify with Jesus and His broken love for mankind.  Why don't you find your stage and declare God's love!

THE HEARTH OF THE PROPHETS HEART - A VISION
Chad Taylor
Dec 24, 2008

 

And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.  -  Num 12:6
 
“For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry…” (Hab. 2:3)
 
This vision is still vividly etched on the canvas of my imagination and it paints a picture of current times. The undertow of current movements and past dispensations often muddy the water of the undiluted message of Jesus. The prophets of old were not inundated with the avalanche of contemporary Christian markets that literally package and mass produce every new trend or movement in the Church today. Thus their message was not tainted or in “piecemeal” of what others were saying, doing or experiencing. The multi-colored quilt of modern meetings has created a phenomenon where many are more acquainted with names and personalities that they are with the living breathing Jesus. They have conveniently forgotten that Jesus is still found in the “least of their brethren” not the most popular. There has been a polarization between the lost unsaved world and the Christian one that exists to reach it.

What we need now is a revival of the “simplicity that is in Christ” as Paul stated in 2nd Corinthians 11:3. Jesus is framed today in the ideals of an American culture and conveniently packaged into whatever fits our lifestyles and appetites. He’s no longer a “suffering Messiah” in a perpetual state of intercession for mankind. We have downgraded the Son of God into a “date” where we simply court him by our need for pleasure and fulfillment. The words of Jesus seem to have no effect on many, “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. (Luke 9:23-24).
 
My vision began as I saw an old man who was stooping down to the ground writing in the sand.  He seemed so intent on what he was doing. As I looked at this old man I heard the Lord say, "This is My prophet; the spirit of the prophet that has been on the earth since the beginning. This is the same Spirit that was in Moses’ heart and Jeremiah, Ezekiel and John the Baptist. It is the same Spirit that dwells on the earth today. But most have not seen or even heard the Spirit of the prophet; the Ancient of Days. Men have changed Me into their own appearances and tried to transform Me by their doctrines but in Me there is no variableness neither shadow of turning - I am the same yesterday, today and forever. What you see in this old man – My prophet, is what is still visible today. (James 1:17; Heb. 13:8)
 
The man was ancient and yet had a sense of vitality and virtue that seemed to superimpose itself over his apparent old age.  As I studied his features and behavior he turned his head up to me and looked at me through eyes that were like a deep stream of water.  They had an evanescent quality in them and yet even then it seemed like something was missing, yearning for something that was once there.  Like an old photograph that was slowly fading.  It was surreal.    
 
The Lord said to me again, “The face of the prophet was obscure and eccentric until John the Baptist and only then did it become completely visible and clear.  That is why I promised that Elijah had to come first through the spirit of the prophet in John.  But something has dimmed since then - something that I am looking for again in the heart of this generation and their worship to Me. John carried the fullness of that Spirit as it was seen in the baptism. He prepared hearts for salvation and that is the pure spirit of the prophet. It brings hearts to repentance through faith in Christ and brings them into My resurrection. The prophet and the Apostle were united in the water baptism of John and that is why the Savior of the world was there. These two hearts are being reunited again in the water of salvation and baptism.
 
Suddenly the scene changed and I saw the figure of Jesus towering above the stooped over old man and the hand of the lord reached from the vast distance above. His hand reached into the old man's body and I could see it as if his chest was transparent and the heart of the prophet was like a giant hearth or oven. There were hot coals burning various colors from yellow, red, orange, purple and blue.  The coals on the top were glowing hot and burning - emanating intense heat. 
 
The Lord spoke again, "These coals on top are the passions that compel my prophets today but there is something missing that I have come to find again deep in the heart of man."  The Lord's hand then reached deeper into the inner recesses of the prophet’s heart as far as His arm could reach.  Slowly He brought out His arm and in the hallow of His hand a small coal appeared black and cold.  The Lord lifted this tiny rock to His partly open mouth and blew.  The tiny coal burst into a red hot flame as red as if it were blood. 
 
Jesus took in another breath and exhaled and said, “This is the all consuming Fire of the Father! It’s what molds missionaries and compels people to defy their human limitations and do the impossible. It’s what makes martyrs and those that will deny the pleasure of this life for a life to come. They are those written about by Apostle Paul,
 
“They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, and were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect. (Heb 11:33-40).
 
This fire is the fire “of whom the world is not worthy”. What was the “better thing for you” that they did not attain? It was the fullness of My Spirit to bring the hearts of mankind to Me! Peter said it when the Spirit of this Fire was sent again through the mouth of the prophets before him, “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. (Acts 2:38-39). That was the promise that could not be fulfilled without you.
 
“This fire is being stirred again. It will pull people from their upper rooms and inner chambers and what has become interpersonal and private will once again be displayed openly and publicly.   This is the coal of the desire for the souls of men and their salvation", the Lord said. "It was the first coal that I used to spark the fire in their hearts in the day of Isaiah - ‘Then flew one of the seraphim’s unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” ‘(Isa 6:6-8). The cry from My Fire is still, “Whom shall We send?”
 
It is the fire that provides life for all the other coals and keeps them burning; without it the flame will slowly dim and die out.  For many, this has already happened and their love for Me has waxed cold. They sincerely believe loving Me is a state of private existence in a form of godliness and worship yet it lacks the power and fire to save. Like the Pharisees of old they truly believe that in the outward show of worship and prayer that it can have a lasting impact. But rather it’s in act of loving Me in “deed and in truth” dealing their bread to the hungry, opening their house the stranger, clothing the naked, feeding the hungry and in this mystery they have seen Me. The outward attire of their own desire is being removed and My heart will be revealed. 
 
I suddenly recalled the scripture in the gospel account of Luke as the two men walked on the road to Emmaus and after encountering Jesus they made this incredible statement, "Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?" (Lk. 24:32)  The fire that burned in Jesus' heart now burned in theirs then and it was this fire that compelled them into the mouth of lions, Roman arenas and ultimately to the “uttermost part of the earth.” They had the Spirit of the prophet burning in them as it did centuries ago.
 
The old man slowly stood up his eyes blazing with new fire! The grizzled prophet cried out the words of Isaiah, “But now, O LORD, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our potter; And all we are the work of Your hand!” (Isa. 64:8). He lifted up His hand to the Lord and began to worship. Beside the prophet was an old plough and worn deep into the handle was inscribed, “HARVEST OF SOULS”. The old man gripped the handles of the plough with all of His strength and cried out in prayer, “I will not look back again my Lord! I am fit for Your Kingdom my God!” The hearth of the prophet’s heart burned hot again and the coal from the altar in Heaven was now reignited and the souls of men burned in his bones. A gift was restored to His people in this season and the world was reaped.
 
“Now also when I am old and gray headed, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed Your strength unto this generation, and Your power to every one that is to come…” (Ps 71:18)
 
 
** NOTE FROM CHAD: We are almost to the finish line for 2008.  We have postponed any prior scheduled dates until Dec. 31st to stay at home with family and prepare for  2009.  Please don't give up on us now - help us race past the finish line with no hesitation.  We are only $1300 shy from our end of the year necessities which include our everyday living expenses for the year.  Many of you have been in our events this year and have been shot out like a cannon ball into your calling and gifts - help us now accomplish these end of the years goals.  There are some reading this right now that could wipe that obstacle right now.  Your commitment to stand with us is immeasurable. 
 
For those of you who missed my friend Peter’ Hans call last Thursday on “The Basics of Investing…According to the Bible,” I have some great news. You can listen to it for FREE at the following link:
 
 
I’d encourage all of you to listen as now, more than ever, I feel that it is important for us to understand how to steward and invest our money. 2009 is being predicted by many to be a tough year financially, but with a little preparation and a lot of prayer, we can position ourselves to receive resources that the Lord has prepared for His people for such a time as this.

As I wrote last time, this is a time when God is calling those who will fund the building of His kingdom on earth. I know many of you are called to be one of these people. Let’s not miss this opportunity to co-labor with Him in what He is doing.
 
Yours for Him.  Chad Taylor

THE TIME FOR THE SOUTH TO RISE IS NOW!
by Misty Taylor
 
I hear the Lord saying that now is the time for the South to rise up and become all that he has called it to be. Are we going to continue sitting around and waiting on some miracle to happen before we take action and do the things God has called us to do? He has given us the ability to do everything he has called us to do yet there are still so many unfinished works. God says step up and out and start doing what I have called you to do. Stop sitting around watching the future generation kill each other and do something about it. The enemy is slowly wiping out the future warriors for God’s kingdom but what are we doing to STOP it? Just sitting back praying and fasting for them? Go and pull them out of the darkness they are in. It is time to step out of the comfort zone you are in and take action for God’s property. He is waiting on his people to have complete faith in him and step out in faith. Don’t allow another vision to pass you by without doing something about it.
 
There may be visions God gave you years ago that you feel have died and are no longer to be completed. God says NO the timing is now, trust in me with your whole heart and do as I have shown you before. If you don’t do it who will? Believe in me and I will show you the way. If you fully trust in me there will be no reason to stop fulfilling my visions I have given you. The youth needs you more now than ever. When I say the youth, I don’t mean just the teens. There are many small children out there suffering; crying themselves to sleep at night for someone to show them the right way. They are my mighty army and I need them to rise up and become the warriors I created them to be. They need you and your support to push them into their destiny! Without your guidance and support they will be pulled down by the enemy and feel as if they have no reason to live and no Hope. Step up be that mentor and make things happen for my future generation. It’s time to be spiritual parents to these children. Give them other options. When you rise up and begin to do the works I have called you to do the blessings will be poured out over you and my kingdom.
 
These dead works must rise again and I’m telling you the time for them to rise is now. It’s time for the South to rise again and many riches and abundance will come from the South. The World will turn to you wanting to know how they can get what you have. It is time for you to be a leader and show the world what God has stored up for them. It’s time to stand in the gap for past generations and future generations. The dead is crying out in our behalf that we see what God has for us. The prayers of Saints that have gone on before us are coming to past through you!
 
It’s time to let go of the hurts that have been caused the pain we still feel when we see certain people. God is ready to heal the past and make us a new people for him. Why should we allow our children to go through some of the same hurts as we did when we can do something about it. He is calling us to rise up and become all that we were created to be. The time is now will you hear his voice and take action? This nation is not forgotten! Many leaders will rise from the South and take a stand for what is right in God’s eyes. Pray for your leaders and for their direction.
 
There are curses that have been spoken over the South that we need to break. Begin praying over your city and breaking off all curses spoken over it. There are roads, buildings, parks, and more that seem to draw the enemy and his evil doers. Take a look back and see where the majority of teen deaths have happened in your city, then take action and begin to pray against the curses in that area. The curses must be broken before God can pour out his entire blessings into your city. Are you going to answer the call and begin to rise up and do what God has shown you to do? I see it clearly; God is holding a HUGE watering can filled with blessings to be poured out on the South, the prayers of His people are what help him turn the can upside down and allow the flood to pour out. His arm in mid-air but he needs more Faith to help him to pour the flood of blessings out. I ask you, is the South really ready to experience all God has for them? Will they answer his call and do what he tells them? This is the year for the South to rise! 2009 is the year for the South! Get involved in you community and start watching how God blesses your household and those around you. Hang in there the road might be bumpy at first, but don’t give up. Continue to fight the battle and the outcome will be well worth it.

PALESTINE, LEBANON, EGYPT, IRAN: A CATALYTIC WORD TO PALESTINE AND THE MIDDLE EAST
Chad Taylor
Nov 30, 2008

 

(Nov. 16th, 2008 - Given live during worship at IOC church in San Mateo, CA. a Palestinian Church. There were Lebanese, Palestinian, Jordanian, Egyptian, Iranian and Iraqis/Assyrians present.  By Chad Taylor)


 
Lebanon, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, all of those adjacent countries and regions.  The spotlight of history is going to turn there again.  Progressive events are about to take place.  Not for evil, but for good.  Look toward that place now. Look towards that country.  Look towards that place of your origin.  Here we are once again Lord.  We stand again today Lord.  We pray the prayer of David, we sing the song of David. 

We pray for Lebanon.  Something is about to change in Lebanon.  There is a changing of the guard.  Hear this, there is a changing of the guard in Lebanon.  In the year 2009, people in leadership shall suddenly change.  People in authority shall suddenly change.  The faces you see today are not the faces you’ll see tomorrow.  For I’m changing the governing authorities in Lebanon.  I’m rearranging I’m changing -hanging of the guard in Lebanon.  There is one specific leader, that the Lord says his season is over.  A new day has begun.  I will raise up one after my own heart.  I will raise up the David's.  I will raise up the Jonathans.  And the reign of Saul will be over.  His supremacy, the dictatorship of Saul will be over.  The time of David will arrive.  Throughout that whole region the spirit of David will prevail.  The spirit of David -- Davidic worship, a heart after God will prevail in those Eastern countries. 

THE HEART OF DAVID IN PALESTINE GOD SAYS, "DREAM AGAIN!"

Let's welcome David into Lebanon!  Lets welcome the man after God’s own heart!  Lets welcome the Spirit of David the Spirit of the worshipper.  Where are you David?  Don’t you know its time?  Its time for the David spirit to reign in those countries.  The man or woman after God’s own heart.  Its time for the season of Saul to be over.  Those appointed by man’s authority, by man’s desire, and man’s design.  That time is over.  God says watch and see I will raise up a leader, and I will raise up leaders not only in the religious systems, but in the governments and in the parliaments.  And the spirit of David will reign in Palestine.  Where are you David?  Its time.  Declare that!  Its time! The Tabernacle of David will be seen again!  Don’t you know its time?  “Here comes David!”

We are singing David's song again.  Take your harps off the trees it's time to sing!  We’ve been like people who’ve dreamed of a time long ago.  I hear the Lord saying, “Dream again!  And those dreams will come true.”  Dream again!  Lebanon dream again!  Jordan dream again!  Your young men shall prophecy and your old men shall dream dreams.  And upon your children and your handmaiden shall I pour out my Spirit on all flesh. [Joel 2:28-29]  And I will be the hope of your people and the hope of your land again. For I am grafting the land back in.  I am grafting the territory back in.  They will not be an outsider, they will not be an outcast they will be known as part of the tree of life, they will be known as part of my destiny, they will be known as part of my people once again.  Dream again!  And you’ll see it even in governments, even in European governments, even in NATO and different governments you will see a grafting back in.  And Palestine and these adjacent countries will sit at the table of governing authorities once again around the world.  The spirit of David will prevail, and like Solomon, kings and queens and princes will come and say, “Look at the wisdom here, look at the wealth, look at the prosperity, look at God’s blessing in these nations again!”

A SHIFT AND CHANGE IN 2009 AND YOUTH WILL SAY, "IS THERE NOT A CAUSE?"

And there will be a phenomenon in the streets of Palestine, there will be a phenomenon on the streets of these cities with the young people.  There will be a grassroots underground movement in their clubs their music scene, the whole culture, the whole creativity, the whole conscience of the young people.  There will be a revolution, not one of violence and uprising but a spiritual revolution of conscience, of thinking, of contemplation.  And in the schools, the academic world, in the places of higher thinking and intellectualism the conscience of the young people will be altered.  There will be a change of DNA, there will be a change of posture, a change of position.  And the zeal of these people will be routed.  God will route the zeal, and harness the zeal of these young people.  And their heart like David will be turned to a cause.  Even as David faced Goliath, he said, “Is there not a cause?” [1 Sam. 17:29]  Is there not a purpose? 

A new purpose and a new cause shall be the underlying current in these nations.  They will be a phenomenon.  There will be leaders that rise up from the age of 19-25.  These leaders will have a clarion voice and they will have a cause like David, and they will route the enemy.  And they will bring a government of God in Lebanon, in Iran, in Jordan, in Egypt, and in all these nations!  The government of God will be upon their shoulders.  And they will bring a spirit of Peace, but not a false peace, and not a false hope, but a peace that only comes from the cross Jesus.  And in the academic field, where doctors and lawyers are birthed and conceived, in those places of intellectualism and prowess will come prophetic anointing.  From the age of 19-25 there will be an anointing upon these young men and young women in these countries.  And they will bring a voice, and they will bring a cause!  It will change the world from Lebanon!  It will change the world!  And the plots and plans and curses of the enemy will come to nothing. 

In 2009 a shift and a change shall take place that will garner the attention of world government, it will garner the attention of media.  All eyes will be upon these states.  All eyes will be upon these countries. And they will say, “Look and see!  Could it be true?!  Could it be true?!  Could it be true?!”  And I’ll dismantle and disrupt and divide the forces of darkness that have prevailed for centuries.  In a generation of young people of your children, of your descendants, of your origins of your lineage shall rise up from the fallow ground of war, and rumors of war, and they will have a mind of David and a heart of David and they will walk with intelligence and wisdom in forthright vision and they shall change the government they shall change ancient laws, and God will turn the tables, and God will reroute the zeal, and you will see prophetic anointing.  You will see great playwrights, great moviemakers, great creativity come from these countries.  It’ll garner Emmys and Grammys it’ll capture the attention of Hollywood, it’ll capture the attention of a generation.  Great minds will emerge from the battlefields just like David, from the fields, just like David. 

And a prophetic anointing shall prevail and resonate to your countries, your nations.  And the spirit of Saul—the appointment and assignments of men will no longer prevail.  That which God anoints shall rise.  Has He not said, “Humble thyself under the mighty hand of God and I will exalt you in due time and in due season.” [1 Pet. 5:6]  Watch and see on the streets, watch and see in the culture, for a cultural melding pot is being stirred.  Great minds and great hearts great poets, and songwriters playwrights, shall emerge with the heart of David, driving out the demons, driving out the division.  And government will follow suit.  There will be a great changing of the guard in 2009.  Watch!  Faces, recognizable faces, that are now on signs, and pictures and murals on the walls will be faded and gone.  And new faces of leadership will arise and emerge upon the scene with the heart of David.  Pray into these things!  Dream again!

SMOKE AND MIRRORS IN DECEMBER DO NOT FEAR!

I hear the Lord saying in December, some time at the turn of the year as one year turns to another there will be a rumor, a smoke and mirrors of the enemy - a danger, there will be a crisis in these countries.  And the Lord says do not believe it for it is only a rumor.  Do not believe it.  It will try to persuade many.  It will try to evoke fear, but the Lord says do not fear this thing that comes at the turn of the year.  Do not fear this thing, it is only a mirage.  Its only a smoke and mirrors, it is not the truth.  My intentions and my will, will prevail.  And as quickly as it gathers attention it will quickly fade.  Like a vapor of smoke that appeared for a little while that vanishes away.  Do not believe this thing that happens, do not believe the rumor that comes from these places.  It is not true and it will not prevail.  When you see these things, just say “Dream again.”  Dream again David.  About the month of February the month of March, The Ides of March, watch and see as these things begin as this great change, this great succession begins to take place in these countries.  Oh the enemy will try to use rumors—don’t believe it.  Look deeper.  Watch and see.  The Bible says we prophecy in part [1 Cor. 13:9].  You know what that means?  There’s a whole lot more that we’re not saying.  It’s the tip of the iceberg.  A small fraction of God’s intentions.  His thoughts toward us are more than the sand of the sea. [Ps. 139:17-18]  Its too wonderful for us, its past finding o! ut [Ps. 139:6], His intentions, his heart, for you; for your people.

THE LORD SAID, "RED ALERT! RED ALERT! I AM TURNING THE ORANGE INTO RED"!

by Chad Taylor

I heard these words resound in my spirit over and over "I AM TURNING THE ORANGE TO RED IN ORANGE COUNTY!"  I knew the Holy Spirit was referring to Orange County, California where I was to soon minister.  I was reminded of the National security colors as you pass through the nations airports, "The National Security Level is Orange today..."  This prophetic revelation would encompass more than 34 significant cities and their outlying boundaries in Orange County.  Then I heard the Lord say again, "RED ALERT! RED ALERT! I AM TURNING THE ORANGE TO RED IN ORANGE COUNTY!"
 
Red is associated with fiery heat and warmth. It can also mean danger (burning).  In China, red is the color of prosperity and joy.  Red is also the color of blood, and is a strong symbol of life and vitality. Red also symbolizes action, confidence, courage, vitality.  Red is often the color worn by brides in the East while it is the color of mourning in South Africa. Red can also relate to power and authority, hence the red power tie for business people and the red carpet for celebrities and VIPs.  Red is hot. It's a strong color that conjures up a range of seemingly conflicting emotions from passionate love to violence and warfare.  Then the word of the Lord became clear and vibrant for Southern California specifically the Orange County area and outlying regions-
 
I am laying out the red carpet says the Lord and My presence shall take precedence in every area of creation and creativity.  For I am Lord Sabaoth; the Lord of the Armies of Heaven and in this hour I am escalating the urgency in this region.  Disparity and depravity shall give way to hope and truth. It shall be overshadowed by many signs in the heavens above and the earth beneath and all will surely say, "The Lord's hand is in this!"  I will give My people courage, confidence, and vitality to take ACTION and move forward.  Now is the time to occupy and heal the land. 
 
I will unfurl the ancient anointing revealed in prophecy, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised to preach the acceptable year of the Lord."  (Luke 4:18-19).  A wave of fresh vision and anointing for the poor will arrest the attention of My church and to those that will receive it I will give them a thirty-fold anointing for the poor and vagabond.  And from this harvest of the "least of these" shall be reaped a quality of workers second to none.  They will be a "Mary Magdalene" and a "Saul of Tarsus" to them and many shall be converted and filled with My Spirit and power.
 
For in this place called Orange County will be an immunity and I will prosper them and give them joy in the aftershock of financial crisis.  I will preserve them and keep them.  I will also purge them and it will be to them as a season of fire as I burn the dross and bring forth the gold.  THE BEACHES WILL BURN WITH SALVATION AND THE WELL OF BAPTISM WILL BE RE-DUG.  Thousands, thousands on the beaches burning with My passion and purposes.  Now will a paradigm shift take place and the minds of My people shall no longer be hinged on the door of a previous experience but will explode with new expectation and faith.  I AM TURNING THE ORANGE TO RED IN ORANGE COUNTY!
 

 

GOD SAID, "THE OREGON TERRITORY IS A "EPICENTER" OR PLACE WHERE THE "EPIC" WILL "ENTER"!


By Chad Taylor

 

The Territory of Oregon was organized on August 14, 1848, by an act of Congress.  It includes the present-day states of Idaho, Oregon and Washington, as well as parts of Montana.  The Lord brought to my attention other significant historic moments in that same year of 1848.  The year of 1848 was also a LEAP YEAR and as I discovered that historic fact I heard the Lord say,
 
"THE OREGON TERRITORY IS ABOUT TO LEAP FORWARD INTO ITS PREDESTINED POSITION FOR HARVEST AND REVIVAL.  IT WILL TAKE ON GLOBAL PROPORTIONS' VERY QUICKLY AS MY PLAN FOR THEM UNFOLDS."
 
1848 was also known around the world as the, "Spring of Nations" or the "Year of Revolution".   It was triggered by a series of political upheavals throughout Europe that spread around the world like fire which also ignited the French Revolution which consequently began also in 1848.  I heard the Lord say that this would be a time of epic revolution and a time when our nation will SPRING FORWARD as it did in 1848 - 160 years ago.  This is a year that will be a "Spring of Nations" or a "Year of Revolution" where current mindsets and processes will be transformed by springing forward and a spiritual revolution or radical change of thinking and believing occurs. 
 
The "Year of Revolution" as it has been titled by historians was not only a volatile time but a violent one as well.  Many countries and continents came under great pressure both naturally and spiritually as the earth "groaned" and there was a spiritual "quantum leap".  This will not only be a time of great spiritual strides but also a time when the world will come under a degree of suffering as weather, economy and other political and natural landscapes suddenly change positioning entire nations for the will and plan of the Lord. 
 
Two other significant events transpired around the world that forever changed these countries and deeply impacted the United States:
The Mexican-American War (1846-1848) and the Irish Potato Famine (1845-1849).  Both of these events greatly impacted the United States.  I heard the Lord say, "NOW THERE WILL BE A FULL CIRCLE AS I SEND BOTH BLESSINGS AND PROVISION TO THESE THREE NATIONS; MEXICO, AMERICA AND IRELAND.  YOU WILL SEE A GREAT REAPING WHERE YOU HAVE SOWN."
 
The Oregon Territory is deeply connected to these world events as the epochs of history occurred and the Oregon Territory was birthed simultaneously.  Oregon, Idaho, Washington and Montana are a EPI-CENTER or a place where EPIC is about to ENTER as it once again shapes world events by its prayers, intercession and outward acts of faith.  I heard the Lord say, "WATCH AND SEE AS THIS IS CONFIRMED BY WATER, WIND AND FIRE IN THE NATURAL THROUGHOUT THIS REGION.  A SERIES OF SUDDENLIES WILL MARK THIS REGION FOR MY PURPOSES."
 
EPIC breakthroughs financially will now ENTER as the Oregon Territory becomes a epicenter of His anointing and provision for world impact.  The nations will become acutely a part of your heart as this year ends and 2009 begins.  You will be strategically in position both spiritually and naturally to have optimum impact.  Psalm 2:8 will be your springboard that will underwrite what I do in your heart and mind says the Lord.  Favor both in Mexico and Ireland will streamline My will in you as a "great door of utterance" opens to you there as well as many other key nations of the world.   EPIC IS ABOUT TO ENTER!
 
 
** Chad will be in the "Oregon Territory" this weekend of Sept. 12-14th in Lakeview, OR. at "The Gathering Place" located at, 3 North F Street - Friday 7pm and Saturday 7pm. Sunday at 10am.  Contact # 541-219-1374

 

 

Chad Taylor Prophecy over Africa

Given at Victory Christian Fellowship

Fresno, CA. February 17, 2008

 

Africa mighty nation of kings and princes the lord says to Africa, Rachel weep no more your children are coming back to their borders and every anointing that was forfeited sold and stolen on every foreign sea shore will return to your continent a hundred fold in this lifetime, in this lifetime and the life to come, for I see Esau coming back to Jacob, I see the army of Esau and all his lambs and sheep. I see the wealth of Esau coming back to Jacob, I see the Queen of Sheba coming unto Solomon, I see the wealth of the wicked returning, returning to the shores of Africa and you will rebuild the old waste places and the cities that have been ashes God will raise up before your eyes, even like a new Jerusalem, God will raise up a city, God will raise up a continent, and God will raise up a nation even in a day.

 

ESAU, JACOB AND THE SPIRIT OF JOSEPH

 

It will be a miracle, it will be a phenomena.  It will be a paradox to some, a miracle to others, and a phenomena to not just a few, what I do through you oh Africa.  For the army and the wealth of Esau, and the birthright that was stolen and sold, is coming back to Jacob.  I see ships, ships, ships full of your people, full of generations, full of mantels, full of anointing, full of crowns coming back filling your sea shores, filling the horizons as far as the eye can see.  From a thousand years ago until now, coming back, coming back, and coming back.  For what the devil meant for evil God has always intended for your good, and the spirit of Joseph shall rest upon you, and you will live in no pit and no prison no more, and the scepter of Pharaoh shall be extended to your nation and kings shall come to the brightness of it’s rising and the army of the gentiles shall come because the glory of the Lord is arising and shining upon you. 

 

STOREHOUSES TO THE NATIONS

 

And though gross darkness has covered you and darkness the people My glory shall arise and shine upon you, for that very text of scripture was written for such a time as this and you will not fail in the time of testing and you will pour it back upon the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Great charity will break poverty and Africa will become a storehouse to the nations.  Storehouses filled with new manna and new bread and other countries in the next decade will come to Africa to fill their bags and fill their ships.  I will completely turn it around for all things work together for the good for those called according to My purposes and my purposes are coming into fullness, fullness, fullness and I am re-capturing the minds of your youth, and they will become doctors and they will become genius’ in their fields; physicists and doctors and lawyers and they will defend you and they will stand for you, and I will raise them up to be the head and not the tail, as prophets and kings, as priests.  Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

 

SIGNS AND WONDERS OVER AFRICA

 

It starts in 2008 the stall and the calves have left the gate in 2008, and you will see a phenomenon in the sky above, you watch it, you watch it. Those that are observant and those that are prophetic and even science shall record the mysteries and the signs and wonders in the heavens above and the earth beneath.  Blood, fire and pillar of smoke shall be seen over Africa as a sign and a wonder and as a symbol of God’s promises and his ability to perform them in this hour.  Strange eclipses of the sun and the moon, strange phenomena in the heavens, I hear the Lord saying a star is born.  And Kings will come to the brightness of it’s rising to bring their gifts to bring their wealth, to bring their wisdom. 

 

HOSPITALS, UNIVERSITIES AND TECHNOLOGICAL BREAKTHROUGHS

 

I see medical, medical hospitals and medical colleges rising up within Africa that will be the envy of the nations and people will come there to attend those schools and those universities.  Like Oxford was in England, God is raising up the academic anointing in the nation of Africa and you will be the envy of England and the envy of America.  Great medical institutions and great academic institutions shall arise from the ashes of civil war.  Where war has marked those countries, so shall my glory now mark them. I will remove the pricks that we have kicked against and I will remove the obstacles and I will make way where there appeared to be in one day, no way.

 

 Oh my God, Oh my God and the Lord says I will break up the fountains of the deep and waters shall be found, and waters shall be discovered, that will be bottled, that shall become an industrious witty-invention and will bring wealth to the people in the Christian communities.  Discoveries, hidden treasures in the darkness, coming to the light to the faithful few and into the hands of the Joseph anointed. For I am building an Ark in the continent of Africa and many nations shall come to find the Glory that resides in you. 

 

THE DAY OF THE WARRIOR HAS COME

by Chad Taylor

 

I see the prayers of your forefathers rise before Me like smoke.  The bones of your brothers cry out to Me from the ground and I declare to you a year of remembrance.  Look closely at 2008; a year of anniversary and remembrance has come before you.  I will reinstate you in places of authority and honor and the prophecies of your forefather's shall resonate in this nation.  All that has opposed Me shall now be swept away as those in darkness see a great Light. "The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up..."  (Matt 4:15-16).
 
THE SPIRIT OF CRAZY HORSE

The warrior spirit is still intact and I will teach your hands to war.  You will tear down ancient strongholds that others have been unwilling and unable to destroy.  You will stand in the gates of Washington D.C. with a message from Heaven.  Those that have resisted you for 200 years will now declare, "Blessed is he who comes in the Name of the Lord."  The self-fulfilling prophecy spoken over you years ago, "I will fight no more forever" will now be reversed and the will to fight the good fight of faith will be restored.  You will take back coveted land and place it at the feet of your Father.  For I tell you this day I hear the prayers of Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull and Joseph - apostolic prophetic declarations that were made that are hanging in the balances of fulfillment. The day of the warrior has come.

 
I WILL RESURRECT YOUR HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE

A resurrection is coming at the places where the warrior has fallen.  These memorial stones will now be remembered from the highest places of government in the land. The powers that have incarcerated your destiny will now be broken releasing the light of a new beginning in your inherent land.  The caricature of history shall be rewritten and the faces of your Chiefs will be seen in the light of truth.  I will place memorial stones in the house of your President for those that favor you will be favored by Me.  Many will see it and be glad.  For the KNEE is a place of prayer and devotion - now hear this word of wisdom:  I will restore your place of intercession and prayer and that which has wounded you and displaced you from your rightful position of prayer and authority for this nation shall no longer handicap you any more.  The knee that was broken shall now be repaired says the Lord and you shall stand in the gap once again. 

 
PROPHECY TO THE WIND BROTHERS

The wind of the prophetic that has lifted you above the persecution will now lift you once again.  The Spirit of Prophecy is your inheritance and you will now find yourself at center stage.  The curtains of bitterness and hate are now being rended revealing a glorious light of My Word in you.  You will stand on the mountains of this nation and declare a New Day.  The highest places are yours for the possession.  As Moses on Mount Sinai you will see a mighty deliverance as millions escape the valley of death into the fields of harvest.  Your day of reckoning and recognition has come My brothers.   Prophecy to the wind and cry out, "These dry bones will live!  These dry bones will live!" 

 
RESERVED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS
 

First Nations will now be the first and not the last as the indictments against them are no more.  A graduation from glory to glory is now in effect and the fires of an awakening on your reservations is now kindled.  For those in "reservation" understand now it was only a "dress rehearsal" reserved for an appointed time and like Esther the scepter of favor and authority will be granted.  Watch and see - even those who say, "Can these things be?", will now stand in the place as the officer did to Elisha as these words come to pass, "Behold, you shall see it with your eyes, but shall not eat thereof..."  (2 Kings 7:2).  The famine of hearing God's word in your land is over.  Stand in that place now and proclaim and watch and see as the reaper is overtaken by the sower. 

 
THE BULL IS NO LONGER SITTING
 
Those that have sat in darkness shall now rise in this dawning of a new day.  A Bright and Morning Star shall be seen in 2008 leading them to the place of their destiny.   The tomb of history shall now be open revealing the exploits that have even to this day remained hidden.  The spirit of exploitation shall be banished from their borders breaking the cycle of the curse that has found its way into this present generation.  The temptation of wealth will not spoil the heart of the youth as they reach for higher ground.  As Elijah prayed for rain so shall you stand at the threshold of drought and dearth and release the heavens.  You shall call upon the Name of Yeshua and the day of famine shall end.  For this is your inheritance and birth right and in this hour you will see the heart of the father's return to their children says the Lord.  Significant signs shall surely follow as a People embrace this day that I have declared. 
 
"But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivers; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.  Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come?  (Isa 42:22-23).

 

THE PERFECT STORM: FINDING GOD IN CURRENT CRISIS'S

by Chad Taylor

 
Recently in a ministry trip to Ketchikan, Alaska I heard the Lord begin to speak about a "perfect storm" or a perfect set of circumstances that appear to be disastrous or tragic but in reality is a chain reaction that is creating monumental breakthrough and powerful lateral momentum in His Kingdom.  Like a Tsunami that comes in with such force and then in its wake massive amounts of land are pulled out with it.  These "perfect storms" are a series of divine circumstances often seen in our headlines and front pages almost daily as a blueprint for incredible breakthrough and Kingdom advancement.  What may at first appear to be unexplainable events will prove to be tipping points and historic progressive breakthroughs that alter the course of regions, states and nations. 
 
 
THE NOAH FACTOR AND MASSIVE GLOBAL BREAKTHROUGH
 
Look at Noah's circumstances for a minute and what apparently began as a complete disaster became a "new world" or a complete change in circumstances and environment.  Recently I was in the Portland area ministering at a Assembly of God church (I believe it's worth mentioning the church denomination), as this historic or "perfect storm" hit interrupting transportation in mass and is still currently having an incredible impact on the environment.  I was scheduled to leave on Monday Dec. 3rd but felt led to leave that night as the storm approached on Dec. 2nd after ministering at the PM meeting.  I believe the entire trip that night was to receive God's perspective at a deeper level as sheets of rain and blasting gusts of wind descended.  These disturbing current events overseas and in the U.S. are catalytic in nature that will often "violently" as stated in Mathew 11:12 radically change the landscape removing obstacles of resistance once and for all.  What would take years and even a life time to change under these adverse events will happen in seconds, minutes and hours. 
 
 
PORTLAND PREPARE FOR A DOWNPOUR OF MY SPIRIT!
 
As I hit Portland's skyline on Interstate 5 I literally saw clouds of God's presence over particular buildings downtown.  This was not a "fog" or haze; I literally saw the physical manifestation of God's presence over the city as recent record breaking rain and wind converged on the city.  As I drove the length of Portland at 11pm Dec. 2nd the Lord stated, "Portland PREPARE for a downpour of My Spirit!  Even as the wind and rain are hitting you even so shall My Spirit hit you - all of you..."  There was such a prominence or emphasis on this word for exactly where the rain and wind were impacting: the city: her streets, building and waterways.  It was a candid picture of a perfect storm of God's Holy Spirit coming to radically change the moral, spiritual and social landscape like a flood.
 
 
SEATTLE, PORTLAND AND BOISE: A TRIUNE COUNSEL OF GOD'S HEART
 
During our 5 month series of meetings in Stockton, CA. this year I heard the Lord state this prophetically in one of our Friday night revival services, "SEATTLE, PORTLAND AND BOISE: A TRIUNE COUNSEL OF GOD'S HEART."  I see this playing itself out now as historic headlining moments unfold targeting these 3 key cities in the Pacific Northwest.  A "Foursquare" balance of God's heart and Will shall emerge from the Church in these 3 cities that will cause a divine equilibrium in the Body of Christ nationally and even globally.  From Sunday services, spontaneous outbreaks of revival to divinely orchestrated conferences and rallies; the heart of God for world harvest and strategic occupation shall form from these 3 places having a profound impact on the future of the Church and the world it is reaching. 
 
Watch and see as other situations occur in these cities and states that some will label, "bizarre, strange and uncanny" but they will prove as circumstances progress, to be a "perfect storm" that creates massive momentum and historic change setting the plumb line of God's will for decades to come.  Seattle, Portland and Boise will prove to be a "threefold cord that is not easily broken" as 2008 unfolds.  2008 will be one of the most defining and definitive years for these 3 cities and states repositioning the Church as even current doctrine is transformed like the land is around them during these historic events.  His Plumb Line will be laid in the Pacific Northwest.

 
THE REJECTED WILL BE ACCEPTED AND REINSTATED IN 2008
 
2008 will go down in history as the YEAR OF THE PRODIGAL as those that have suffered severe rejection are now accepted and reinstated by the Hand of the Lord.  It will not be an act of man even as it was not the act of man that reinstated the prodigal son to his position or Moses, David, or Jonah to theirs.  The grace of God will prove itself sufficient in 2008 as significant headlining reconciliation and restorations takes place.  Newspapers, talk shows and other major media events will become harbingers of God's intentions like no other time in 2008 as the "uncomely parts" are bestowed more honor.  Those that have been disgraced, misunderstood and forgotten will be suddenly thrust back to the forefront as Joseph was from his pit and prison.  The stone covering many people's "lion's den" shall be rolled away by the power's-that-be revealing a greater destiny inside.  Those that have "fellowshipped in His suffering" shall undoubtedly now walk in resurrection power.
 
 
2008: THE YEAR OF THE INDIGENOUS
 
Major political and social events shall occur that publicly and historically place the Native American people into a place of restoration.  An "every eye shall see" shall unfold in 2008 taking their cause from the ranks of last making it first.  The anointing of peacemaker shall take center stage on many international platforms as the Indigenous people take the lead in major national events.  Certain seats of national authority have been reserved for them for such a time as this.  Faces that have been hidden from public view will now "arise and shine" and the caricature of previous history will be eclipsed by a new breed of apostles, prophets, evangelist, pastors and teachers revealing the original foundation that the Lord has established.  City seats and governmental positions will now be vacant as these noble people step into their rightful position of leadership.  Church governments will inevitably and unavoidably have to reach out to the Native American people if they are ever going to see the fullness of the Lord's will in their cities and churches; this will become perfectly clear as the year unfolds.  Media and movies will continue to lead the charge as the Lord shines His divine spotlight on a chosen generation of Native American's.  North Dakota, New Mexico, Arizona and Wyoming will take on a apostolic role of reconciliation and restoration as a "voice crying in the wilderness" begins to be heard in America.  The true genuine Joseph anointing will be seen in its full stature and true character as these people take up the call and election of the Lord in 2008 and beyond. 
 
 
A ASSEMBLY OF GOD'S PRESENCE IS AMASSING
 
Remember the reference to the Assembly of God church above?  I heard these words as I ministered in two Assembly of God churches in the last two months, particularly in the Portland area as what some are calling "the 40 year" storm because of its intensity and the first of its kind in 40 years.  Not only is the Lord's presence targeting certain denominations and churches such as the A.G. but He is targeting major metropolitan cities in a terrific historic way.  Even as we see Interstate 5 interrupted between Portland and Seattle by torrential rain and flooding it is only a prelude to incredible divine interruptions as the Lord begins to fill His temple as He did in Acts chapter 2. 
 
Many mainline denominations that have remained steadfast in former doctrine and dogma indifferent to the current move of God will emerge from the tomb like Lazarus; the grave clothes of previous experiences no longer hindering them.  Even more contemporary church movements that have detoured from their divine course will find new vision and grace to return to their "first love" and do the "first works".  Like the little boats in Luke chapter 5 the influx and increase will be so great it will demand a greater unified front than ever before in the Body of Christ to ultimately accomplish His work:  "So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink..."  (Luke 5:7 NKJV).  Imagine success in the Lord's Kingdom that is so great that unless you reach out and accept assistance from others your ministry will sink?!  That is the kind of divine challenges the future holds as the "perfect storms" of God's will converge upon the world.

 

THE DELTA RIVER REVIVAL AND THE PENDING FUTURE OF CALIFORNIA

by Chad Taylor

I heard these words over and over in the Spirit today.  I heard it stated as if it was a historical event such as, “The Cain Ridge Revival”, or “The Welsh Revival.”  The only difference was that these were specific historical events and the DELTA RIVER REVIVAL was an event yet to happen.  I heard it again, “THE DELTA RIVER REVIVAL”.  It was an unusual moment as I heard voices from the future declaring our present, “THE DELTA RIVER REVIVAL...”

The Delta is an example of an inverted river delta, one of only a few worldwide located in Central/Northern California.  Created by a massive convergence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers, it’s a vast expanse of tributaries and canals that eventually empty into the Pacific Ocean through San Francisco and the Golden Gate.  Stockton, CA. acts as a “watchman” of the Delta and is located on the San Joaquin River on the eastern edge of the delta and is the seat of the San Joaquin County.  The Delta is also a water and energy source for millions of people and one of the world’s greatest agricultural resources.  It is commonly referred to as the "fruit basket of the world." Again I heard, “THE DELTA RIVER REVIVAL…”

THE “DELTA REVIVAL ZONE”: AN EPI-CENTER OF REVIVAL

Stockton, Sacramento, Fresno, Bakersfield, Tracy, Modesto, Visalia, Merced, Chico, Redding, Yuba City were spokes on this “wheel” of revival.  Many other cities are connected and related to the cities mentioned above. This “zone” also impacts the mountain ranges that “guard” this precious resource; Sierra Nevada to the East, the Tehachapi Mountains to the south, and the Coast Ranges and San Francisco Bay to the west.  I saw a large red circle covering an aerial view of the state highlighting this “revival zone”.  God has marked this region to produce some of the most significant signs of revival in Christian history.

I HEARD AN ANGEL DECLARE, “THE YOUTH ARE COMING!  THE YOUTH ARE COMING!”

An angelic declaration was being decreed over this region of California.  A major influx of youth were about to receive the injunction of the Lord into the Army of God.  A great commissioning into this revival was about to take place.  Rather than coexisting as “2nd Class” in this army they were about to receive a major spiritual promotion and begin to take the forefront starting in California and then nation wide.  A significant sign of this is about to take place that will receive widespread attention.  The prison door of their present spiritual position in the church is about to drastically change.  Like Joseph the pit and prison of present circumstance is suddenly going to be transformed into city wide authority for revival. 

A STOCKPILE OF MIRACLES, SIGNS AND WONDERS IN STOCKTON

Stockton, CA. during the historic Gold Rush that dramatically changed the landscape of California and the world quickly evolved into the SUPPLY LINE for the miners.  Stockton is also the location of the largest inland seaport in California. In and around Stockton are thousands of miles of waterways, canals, and rivers that comprise the California Delta.  I heard the Lord say, “THE STOREHOUSE AND THE STOCKPILE OF MY PROVISION WILL BE IN STOCKTON SUPPLYING VITAL PROVISION AND ANOINTING FOR MY MODERN “MINERS” OR REVIVALISTS.  I will have a stockpile of miracles, signs and wonder in Stockton.  Many will come to receive their destinies, creative miracles and anointing for revival.  The stock and value of Stockton is quickly rising says the Lord I am even now causing this to happen.  You will see this evident in the natural as well as the spirit. Many will relocate to this city and receive the catalytic anointing inherent in It to impact the world with the Gospel.  A great pillar of prayer is rising from this city that will be seen from the uttermost parts of the earth.  Watch and see as this comes to pass before your very eyes.

 THREE SIGNIFICANT SIGNS IN SAN FRANCISCO

I heard the Lord say, THREE SIGNIFICANT SIGNS IN SAN FRANCISCO WILL BE FOR A WONDER FOR ALL TO SEE.   One will be in the government or governing body of the city, the second will be a major shift in the economy and thirdly in the very nature of or physical substance and environment.  One sign shall capture the attention of the media for 3 days.  On the 3rd day other significant news shall shift the attention of the nation but it will be for a sign of resurrection and restoration of My law.  One sign will be an alarm that will have a detouring effect on the economy and passions of the city; it will impact the moral fabric of the city displacing millions of dollars in a few short hours of time.  Finally the last sign will be physical in nature and supernatural shifting the very boundaries of the city restoring the “old paths” signifying a restoration of the cities destiny and prophetic foundations.  A certain death of a historic or primary figure in San Francisco will also make headlines and trigger a “changing of the guard” and a new beginning in the natural and spiritual says the Lord.

CALIFORNIA FIRES ARE ONLY THE PREREQUISITE FOR SPIRITUAL FIRES

As record breaking fires have blazed across the state it is only the opening act of a great spiritual fire to follow.  Some of the regions most impacted by these fires will be “fire zones” of revival and evangelism.  It is also a sign of the burning away of the old making way for the new.  I am restoring the vision that has been buried and it will be revealed by fire.  The wood, hay and stubble of men’s own efforts will fail but the gold and silver of revival will prevail in the coming days.  The back draft of My purposes will suddenly hit many and launch ministries and churches literally overnight.  They will have stellar success as they embrace this new day of My visitation and let go of the stigma of the past with its rules and regulations.  They will be a tabernacle of My presence inviting entire cities into My anointing.  This will be highlighted by graphic and poignant miracles that will be so powerful in nature it will arrest the attention of entire regions filling open arenas and market places with spontaneous gatherings lasting for weeks.  These occurrences will spread across the West Coast and the entire nation setting on fire a course of revival that will defy modern premise and theology shattering the present wineskin.  The days of Elijah are here!

THE CAPTAIN OF THE SHIP IS CALIFORNIA AND WHERE IT SAILS THE NATION WILL SURELY FOLLOW

I saw a picture of a mariner grasping the wheel of his ship braving the storm that was lashing out against him.  Over the heaving waves and whipping winds he overcome as I heard the shout from above, “LAND HO! LAND HO!”  The ship of grace had found it harbor.  Like Christopher Columbus that sailed the unknown waters of the Atlantic so is California and her ramification on the nation.  Where her bow breaks spiritual waters breakthrough is sure to follow.  I heard the Lord say, “WATCH THE ECONOMY!  WHAT I DO IN CALIFORNIA WILL SET THE STANDARD FOR THE NATION.  A groundswell of economic breakthrough is beginning.  It will be highlighted by natural events that will at times go completely unnoticed and often never connected to these events.  Others will be clear and validating signs that I am opening up the wells of blessing to equip the army that is consequently being commissioned.  Watch for flooding and other signs related to water and waterways.  It is only one landmark on the road to revival.   

 

"IT'S CRITICAL MASS CALIFORNIA!: CALIFORNIA IN GOD'S CROSSHAIRS"


Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant, And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you." (Isa 60:4-5).



Our recent trip to Central California produced the most significant fruit in 9 years of ministering in this state. We experienced first hand what I call, REVIVAL PRAYING. When God's people find a place of intense prayer mixed with tears that inevitably leads to repentance from dead works. This is usually followed by a deep resolve to reach the world that surrounds are modern parishes and churches and narrow the stark margin between the church and street. I ministered at various cities and churches including a group at the Delta College Campus one of CA. oldest colleges. As I illustrated the "missing links" in today's church that creates a general atmosphere absent of a true revival spirit the class began to cry out to God spontaneously with tears and vehement prayers. It reminded me of the small class I taught several years ago at the University of the Nations YWAM base in Kona, HI. What started as a small strategic missions class suddenly captured the hearts of the campus as we converged on the "GO" center with revival prayers. This resulted in many going to the streets of Kona with fire and passion. Much of that continues today as many continue to carry the torch into the streets.

Light was created to rule over darkness as the Lord declared eons ago, "And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night..." (Gen 1:16). We need to be where it is dark. You see this dynamic again, "And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever." (Dan 12:3). A "shining" or "rising" always has a starting point. As I heard the words, CRITICAL MASS CALIFORNIA I saw California as the breaking point or tipping point of a great "Shining" across the land. Like a submarine streaking upward toward the waters surface the tip of the submarine hits and breaks the waves; I see California as the tip or "ice breaker" as it shines with a effectual fervent glory.


THE PACE CAR OF REVIVAL IS NOW TAKING THE TRACK

California is like the pace car at the Indianapolis 500 it will begin to set the pace for radical reformation in the church system. California will be the arrow point that pierces the old wine skin and makes way for a new dynamic of ministry and church. You will see a first fruits of this in California as a army begins to stir herself. As California begins to take her role as a true forerunner and trail blazer hot spots of revival will begin to burn more brightly all over the nation. As California gets free so a nation gets free. The pace of current breakthrough will quicken this summer and landslide into the fall and winter months. In November you will see significant signs following as these things take place. The oil of repentance and penance will open the floodgates of reparation as I call California's firstborn back to Me.

Many generational legacies will begin to bear fruit as California stirs herself once again. The Mexican American will find themselves in new seats of authority governing and ruling in righteousness as delegates and ambassadors of the Lord. The royal Spanish and Mexican bloodline will find redemptive qualities for California's future and these things will become very evident in the days and months ahead as the very land is healed from the reparative prayer of the saints. Meekness and humility will win over the hearts of the proud and divers and sundry streams of religious expression will come together as one to shout the walls if indifference and piety down.


CALIFORNIA IS IN GOD'S CROSSHAIRS (THE DEVIL'S TOO)

Like a nuclear reactor California is now at critical mass. The crosshairs of God's purpose and plan is upon it. Those that labored in her vineyards for years will now reap the reward of the diligent which is the first fruits of revival. The broken walls of her inheritance that religion and division has eroded will now be repaired as a new strength fills the hearts of her children. Dark and dangerous plots of the enemy over Southern California will come to nothing as the Sword of the Lord and Gideon fight on the side of the Lord. Natural disaster in Central California will be extremely lessened to encourage the hearts of the laborers. Northern California will feel the refreshing winds of the Lord's presence as he strengthens her borders and removes the mountains before them. Wells that have remained shut and forgotten will give way to new rivers of righteousness and power as He heals the wounds of the land. Reconciliation will resound as you pray releasing the fire of God. The spirit of Ichabod will find no place to rest in you as you passionately pursue His heart for the lost and poor. Your places of worship will now be called, "cities of refuge" for the downcast and the rejected as a underground harvest begins to step from the cave into the light. Faces etched with destiny will shine with His glory despite tattoos and outward signs of their persecution. As David they will dance in the streets and war in the hiways and biways for a people yet to see His glory. RADICAL is written on their hearts as they pursue His plan with unshakable resolve.


THE CUP OF THE PROPHET IS OVER CALIFORNIA

"He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward". (Matt 10:41). Because of California's ability to accommodate the prophet's of the Lord a prophet's reward is upon her. A prophetic prosperity will fill her coffers and overflow her bosom as she gives birth to the prophetic word sown inside her. Current trends in real estate and land ownership will set a new standard in California and the nation as God prepares her borders for His arising in His people. As in the opening pages of Acts "Land and Houses" will be released at a blurring rate and the finances from this divine release and blessing will supply the frontlines of revival around the world. Great missionary endeavors will come from California unlike any other time in recorded history as the gates of prosperity are opened. Pray intercessors Pray! The battle is intensifying over you and the price will not be light as you stand in the gap for a generation. The timing has come into maturation and bells of grace our sounding over your heads, lift them up for the deliverance of the Lord is here!


THE ANGEL SHOUTED, "THE EAGLES HAVE LANDED! THE EAGLES HAVE LANDED!"

I heard this crystal clear in the spirit as I received this prophetic word, THE ANGEL SHOUTED, "THE EAGLES HAVE LANDED! THE EAGLES HAVE LANDED!" California is a great eagles nest that is preparing to propagate the Word of the Lord in a very unique and significant way. I also saw the eagle as the symbol of the United States and its governing body. California would once again become the "point man" in 2008 as the elections come to a head. The prophetic company assembled in California's borders would become a epicenter of historic prayers predetermining the future of a nation. A divine hiway is coming to a completion in California; a landing strip receiving prophetic ministries from around the world into its borders. California will quickly become a "prophet's upper room" and the blessings of the Lord will overtake her. Her land will flourish, her banks will overflow as in times of harvest in Israel's crossing the Jordan. The distinct sounds of worship will be heard in her cities. San Francisco will not be just sounding brass or clanging symbols but rather a distinct call to battle will be sounded out rallying the army into action. As Elisha was in Dothan as he prayed, "Open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha." "And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them." (2 Kings 6:16). For a time of reckoning and reconciliation is upon you and you will see the Lord in the land of the living.


THE LORD SAID, "I AM LEAVING MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO

As the old song pays tribute, "I left my heart in San Francisco", I heard the Lord say, "I am leaving MY HEART in San Francisco." A redefining moment is upon you O great city. As you once burned into the night and ships from afar saw your demise now watch and see as I arise and shine declaring a new day of liberty. Ships from afar shall once again see the night sky burning bright but now it will be the fires of My spirit as a lamp to your feet and a light to your path. I will now light the torches of My passion and purpose and like an Olympic runner your streets will see it and be glad. I say something unique in the months of June, July and August. For those months shall be as three days to Me says the Lord and I will open the graves of your destiny and call Lazarus forth. The stone of judgment shall be rolled away and you shall stand in victory as the reproach of your youth is remembered no more. An army of destitute and despised will stand in My glory with fire in their eyes as the Spirit of the Lord is poured out without measure. That which has been your greatest shame shall now become your greatest glory as I testify My grace in you. Watch and see, even from the Golden Gate my glory will be seen - many will stop to behold a sign and a wonder and lift up their eyes to Me for this purpose will it be. I am even now removing those that oppose and a great turning will transpire as the seats of authority are occupied by those that pray. Righteousness will prevail and the gates of hell will not as a new day is declared in you many will see it and rejoice. I am leaving My heart in San Francisco says the Lord, I am leaving My heart in you. What was once stone is now flesh and will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord.

THE LIBERTY BELL WILL RING AGAIN AND THE ANGEL OF FREEDOM SAID, "LET FREEDOM REIGN!"

 
 

On Sunday April 15th, 2007 I found myself at a crucial prophetic crossroads.  In light of recent events this week as the Supreme Court's Decision to Uphold Partial Birth Abortion Ban my encounter at this important monument to the Civil Rights movement and American history only cemented this experience.  I was a speaker at a conference in the Birmingham, AL. area but what unfolded Sunday morning was unscheduled and divinely orchestrated.  Literally the night before my commitment to speak at another local church was changed and I found myself awakened by the Lord Sunday morning and then was led to drive toward downtown Birmingham at approximately 10:00 am.  I was seeking directions to another part of the city and pulled off a random exit and asked directions from a man who was exiting the gas station.  I had noticed a city marker that indicated that the "Civil Rights Institute" and museum was nearby.  I inquired about that as well and the African American man said without hesitation, "Follow me..." 
 

It was very cold and the rain was whipping by as unusual weather patterns were also impacting the East Coast at the same time.  The downtown area was nearly empty considering it was an early Sunday morning in the deep south.  After a few blocks the stranger led me to the doors of large building that was the Civil Rights Institute.  It was closed to the public.  I got out of my vehicle and another African American man was walking toward me.  I suddenly had the realization that Martin Luther King Jr. had once preached here and other historical landmarks became clear to me as I looked around at the various markers and plaques.  I asked the man, "Where is the church that Martin Luther King Jr. preached at?"  He pointed behind me, "Right there!"  A few feet from where I parked was 16th Street Baptist Church which become the epicenter of civil right history and tragedy when a bomb exploded September 15th, 1963 claiming the lives of four young girls.  This was also the breaking point which caused international attention to the civil rights stand and brought about historic change. 
 
As I climbed the old steps to the main entrance it was if I had stepped back in time 50 years ago as this nation struggled deeply for its civil and morale bearings and seemed to falter.  By this time I could hear the sound of the choir as they, "Marching to Zion" and I was welcomed warmly by the ushers as they handed me the bulletin - it read, "TODAY WE CELEBRATE THE 134th YEAR OF THE SIXTEENTH STREET BAPTIST CHURCH"  The very day that the Lord led me to this historic precipice was its 134th anniversary of its existence.  1873 was also marked by the Stock Market crash which was the beginning of the "great depression".  Sixteenth Street Baptist Church was also the first African American church organized in Birmingham, AL.  As I sat there transfixed by the events the Lord spoke into my spirit, "THE LIBERTY BELL IS RINGING AGAIN!"  I heard this over and over as I sat near the back of the building in an old wooden pew, "THE LIBERTY BELL IS RINGING AGAIN!"  I was also suddenly aware a massive angelic presence over this exact building I knew immediately it was the Angel of Freedom and it was declaring as the choir sang, "LET FREEDOM REIGN!" 
 
I was still reeling from these events as I rose to exit.  As I went down the steep steps of the church again I asked a Police Officer that was now parked across the street, again an African American, where the historic marches had occurred as the water cannons pummeled the people and the police dogs were seen on television attacking the marchers, he said it was on 6th Ave. which was exactly where I was standing on 16th Street and 6th Ave.  I got into my truck because of the cold and began driving the route of the infamous march my windows down.  What happened next still echoes in my spirit...  I heard clearly from a distance A LARGE BELL RINGING.  I turned toward it and tried to locate it again as it rang but from a different direction.  I looked all around trying to find the origins of the sound and again it rang clearly but from a different direction.  I suddenly realized I was hearing an audible supernatural sound as the Lord said again, "THE LIBERTY BELL IS RINGING AGAIN!"  It was coming from all around me and had no particular rhythm it just rang; deep and clear. 
 
As I continued to drive through the city I saw the fires of revival and revolution that had once burned in this city.  It was not only natural water cannons that pummeled the people that marched for freedom in Birmingham, Alabama it was also a religious flood that quenched the fires of revival.  As I walked through the park across from 16th Street Baptist church with its life size memorial of Martin Luther King Jr. the Lord said, "PROPHECY TO THE FIRE OF REVIVAL TO SPRING UP ONCE AGAIN!".  I saw as it was coals still burning right under the surface.  A plaque in the park was etched with two words, "RECONCILIATION and REVOLUTION"   I began to prophesy RECONCILIATION, REVOLUTION and REVIVAL fires to begin to burn brightly over America again securing liberty and justice for ALL from the streets of Birmingham, AL on the very same route the masses marched over 40 years ago in the shadow of the 16th Street Baptist Church.  THE LIBERTY BELL IS RINGING OVER AMERICA AGAIN.

"THE COURT OF GOD'S GRACE IS NOW IN SESSION"

by Chad Taylor

Today I heard that word as if it was audible, "THE COURTS OF GOD'S GRACE ARE NOW IN SESSION".  I saw an unfolding vision of real life courtroom and the jury was entering filing into their seats.  There was a large crowd in the main audience and I knew right away by the innumerable television cameras that this was being viewed around the world.  I then saw who I knew to be Jesus come into the room and He stated, "I am ready to bring evidence and substance to prove My people's faith..."  Another voice who I knew to be the Father's say, "The court is now Yours to present Your case."  I was immediately drawn to the scripture in Matthew 11 as the Lord revealed to me the first session of God's court of grace 2000 years ago, "And when John had heard in prison about the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples and said to Him, "Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?" Jesus answered and said to them, "Go and tell John the things which you hear and see:  The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them.  (Matt 11:2-6).  As the jury of that age was assembled for the first time Jesus our advocate and propitiation presented His overwhelming evidence proving that His grace WAS sufficient.  Then I heard the voice of the Lord say again, "Court is now in session again and I will prove like no other time in history that My grace is sufficient.  I will present evidence and substance that My peoples faith is not in vain."

SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES ARE HIS EVIDENCE IN THIS PRESENT COURT OF GRACE

Signs, wonders, miracles and the great commissioning to preach the gospel with favor unparalleled in human history is the great evidence in this Court of Grace.  I heard the Lord say to the Jury of unbelievers, agnostics, Muslims, and every sort of doubter and critic, “Watch and see I will do a work before you that you would not believe even if it were told you.”  As this heavenly drama unfolded before me I noticed again the television cameras and high tech video recorders.  I heard the Lord say to me “My miracles will be seen in High Definition and nobody will be able to gainsay or rebuke them…”  The Lord was making His work more visible than ever before in recorded history.  It would be emblazoned on every network and television channel around the world and feature films and secular media would become our greatest source of visibility as they recorded the great exploits of God’s people.  Like Nebuchadnezzar many of the most visible personalities in movies and media would openly and publicly confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.  I heard the Lord say, “Watch Donald Trump for as a child he encountered Me, I am going to remind him of His greatest legacy in the days to come, he is only one of many that I will shine the spotlight of My grace on says the Lord.”

THE DAYS OF HEBREWS 11 HAVE OFFICIALLY BEGUN 

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Heb 11:1)  The substance and evidence of all that My church has contended for is beginning to make itself manifest.  You will see the greater works and the exploits that you have read about for generations.  The engine that will move this vehicle of greater works is GRACE and it will enable you to do in 1 year what otherwise would have taken 10.  The days of leaping and jumping have come again and the great public display of miracle working power is upon you.  It will not only be in stadiums and set timed events but rather in the “Gate Beautiful” and other very visible and public places.  Many that have strived and walked faithfully for years in seeming obscurity will suddenly step into the great spotlight of this grace and find themselves in the maelstrom of miracles.  This what they meant when they said, “nameless and faceless” but these will suddenly have a name and have a face and will magnify My name in a way that rivals those in Hebrews 11.  It will captivate millions as they see these things displayed on story high TV screen in downtown New York City and on monitors in Las Vegas Casinos.  The world will SEE My glory!

2007 THE OPENING BELL FOR THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH

Now is the time to contend and reach for the greater works.  Like Paul you must believe for the greater things and begin to strive for that upward call like you have never done before.  As the bar is raised I will show Myself strong on My people’s behalf opening the doors of the Supreme Court and the Whitehouse as never before.  I say watch and see for there are two more seats if you will believe!  I said watch and see – there are TWO more seats if you will only believe!  Grace will tip the scales of justice and she will submit to My word.  A mass exodus from the abortion clinics will occur as you face the future with My grace.  I then saw a vision as it were boarded up buildings and “CLOSED FOR BUSINESS” signs on these buildings in every state and city I knew that these were abortion clinics and that the Lord had wielded His gavel of grace across this land and a new day had dawned. 

The Lord then said, “These next seven years starting in 2007 will be My appointed days of plenty.  I will undo the heavy burdens of laws and legislation that have been put upon you and this will mark the days of the greater works.  I will stall the plans of the enemy in this country and the liberty to do My work will be plumb line before you.  For all that you have endured America is for the defense of the Gospel.  I said it is for the defense of the Gospel.  Awake O righteous church for the day of you divine deliverance has come.  And the court of My grace is now in session!

"THROW YOUR NETS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF REALITY – YOU’RE ABOUT TO QUANTUM LEAP"

 

 

"Look among the nations and watch — Be utterly astounded!  For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you.  (Habakkuk 1:5)

 

 

As I began to receive this word from the Lord it started with this exhortation regarding the statement above, “throw your nets on the other side of reality”, making reference to the disciples in John 21:5-6 when Jesus

said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some..."  I suddenly realized that it was nothing to do with the boat or what part of the body of water that they were fishing in, what Jesus was pinpointing here was their PERCEPTION and UNDERSTANDING of who He was at that moment in time was incomplete.  As they sat adrift in the boat Jesus to them was powerless and dead – suddenly in a twinkling of an eye He showed Himself able to do ALL THINGS for them RIGHT NOW as John the revelator exclaimed, “It is the Lord!”  The greatest breakthroughs that are about to happen is our perceptions of Jesus and who He is and what He is capable of doing in us.   The lifeless waters of our previous understanding that produced no fruit and left us with empty nets is suddenly going to be transformed as our understanding of His heart changes and “we all with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord…”  (2 Cor 3:18)

 

 

ALL NATIONS SHALL CALL HIM BLESSED

 

David declared, “His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.” (Ps 72:17). 

 

This will be one of the greatest phenomena’s that we will experience as a corporate church in this era of history - the unprecedented desire and ability to reach the world for Jesus.  His promise in Matthew 24:14 which has been impossible to accomplish within the confines of any one generation will be suddenly within reach of all even at one time; “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations”.  “ALL THE NATIONS” will not be such an overwhelming task as even the smallest grassroots ministry without the previously required experience will have within their means to reach “all the nations” in a moment of time as their understanding of His promises are revealed. What has been clearly and acceptably impossible before will literally in a twinkling of an eye be astonishingly possible and literal.  A quantum leap means, “any sudden and significant change, advance, or increase”.   Sudden and significant change, advance and increase will define this generation as they come into the fullness of Christ and His promises.

 

 

BACK TO THE FUTURE AND THE KEYS TO THE PAST AND PRESENT

 

I saw as it was an hour glass and instead of it going vertical or up and down, it was horizontal or to the left and right.  Rather than the sand emptying into the bottom of the glass indicating the end of something instead both sides were running together as the sand heaped up in the middle pouring out on all sides.  Horizontal also refers to or means “horizon” or the future.  I heard the Lord say, “This is the appointed time that THE THINGS THAT I HAVE PROMISED IN THE PAST WILL NOW BECOME YOUR FUTURE!   Both are suddenly colliding with one another as that which I have promised you for generations are now coming to pass.  Promises hitherto will now be your future as your future is defined by the fulfillment of that which I have already promised.  I will take you BACK TO YOUR FUTURE SAYS THE LORD!  These are the keys that I gave to Peter.  This is the rock of revealed truth that My church is built on.  Now I will reveal the bedrock of that Truth to a single generation as they fulfill My great commission. 

 

 

THE WAR IN HOLLYWOOD IS ONLY A BATTLE FOR YOUR PERCEPTION

 

 I heard the Lord say that statement with such clarity, “The war in Hollywood is only a battle for your perception”.  The enemy’s only effective weapon is to rule our perception and understanding of who Christ is and who we are in the world for Him.  As that changes whether for the good or bad it changes the world that is around us instantly.  As the centurion’s perception in Matthew 27 and those around him changed and what they saw Jesus to be was altered it also SUDDENLY AND WITH GREAT FORCE CHANGED THE WORLD AROUND THEM!  “Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God!”  (Matt 27:54).  Both of these events were hinged upon the other; the world changing suddenly with great force and their perception of who Jesus was changing with the same intensity.  As Jesus changes our perception of who He is and what He intends to do through us the world inevitably will radically change around us not only in the spiritual but the natural as well.  Earthquakes of revelation and perception will rend the veils of limited understanding and those utterly incapable of reaching the word for Jesus will in a moment of time rise up to move mountains and nations in Jesus name.  No longer will the results be determined by their own abilities or perceptions but by the awesome promises of the Lord, “All kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him…”  (Ps 72:11).

 

 

NOW IS THE TIME TO FULFILL YOUR DESTINIES AND UNLOCK THE HIDDEN TREASURES WITHIN

 

“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the Excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.”  (2 Cor 4:6-7).

 

I saw the hand of the Lord as if He was reaching into a honeycomb of some kind and pulling out handfuls of precious honey.  Then I heard Him say, “I am drawing out the hidden treasures of My glory that I placed in the hearts of My people before time as you know it in a predestined place of My will.  David saw this when he wrote, “Your eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfected; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!”  (Ps 139:16-17).  Those that currently see themselves as a “lesser of the sum” and their destines “without form” will come into a clarity of their future and what I have called them to be and do. They will be a Lazarus that rises up from the grave of previous and even present understanding and come into a world changed by their perception of Me.  Those that now perceive themselves as the lesser will suddenly see the “sum” of My thoughts toward them and they will do exploits.  Literally the earth will move before them changing, metamorphosing as my sons and daughters are made manifest.  The invisible power that changes trends and perceptions will now give way to a greater day as My children cry, “Abba Father”.  The darkness of our own understanding is being shattered by the Light of His glorious appearing in us now – then we will turn our faces to the world as Moses did when he came down the mountain and they will see the “light of the knowledge of the glory of God” in us and the world will be changed.  This truly is the day of visitation and the day that you will be able to say with all boldness, “IT IS FINISHED!”

"A WORD TO THE DESPERATE, DERAILED, AND DAUNTED --THIS IS YOUR YEAR!"

 

YOUR CAVE IS BECOMING YOUR CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT!

The Lord says, "All that you have endured--the misunderstanding and the discouragement, even at times to the point of utter despair, will only prove to be your crowning achievement in My Kingdom. For those that suffer with Me will inevitably reign with Me. Your Cave of Adullam is now becoming your cave of absolution as I compel you forward into every good work. The stones that have sealed you in will now pave the way into your future as you ride this next wave of breakthrough!"

 

CLEAR AND PRESENT BREAKTHROUGH--IT'S NOT FICTION, IT'S FACT!

I heard the words: "CLEAR AND PRESENT BREAKTHROUGH" exclaimed over 2007. This is the precedent that the Lord is setting--a benchmark of breakthrough in 2007 that like Joshua and Israel, will launch the Body of Christ into an unparalleled spiritual position to heal and take back the land.

I saw the "writing on the wall" changing from DELIVERANCE to POSSESSING as those delivered from every dreadful thing were now possessing and taking back the inheritance of their forefathers. Many who are related to the first pioneers and missionaries that set foot on American soil, will now reap the inheritance reserved for such a time as this. This is not fiction, it's fact! The absolutes of God's promises are overtaking us.

2007: THE YEAR OF UNLEAVENED VISION AND DREAMS

"Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened..." (1 Corinthians 5:7).

The Lord says, "I am removing the old and the expired that has clogged the arteries of fresh vision and dynamic dreams. My people will see a panoramic setting of their future rather than a black and white backdrop of previous experiences. This is the year of unleavened vision unhindered from the power of our past as the gravity of our future moves us forward at record breaking speed."

The Lord says, "Mark the calendar:

March will set a new standard not only in the spiritual, but the natural.

April will bring new rain as it sets in motion the birthing of great things.

May will be the starting point as many begin to launch out in different directions.

June will be a month of Jubilee as finances are poured out through open windows of Heaven. All that you have sown will surely begin to come back to you in June.

July will be a month of fire. You will see it in the headlines and in the spirit. Don't be persuaded by natural events; only be confident that they are a confirmation of things to come.

August will be a month of testing to prove the unleavened vision that you have received; make it through this month, and September will surely result in great harvest.

October will bring persecution, but to those that are tried will receive a crown of life. Hold fast to that which I have shown you."

THE BENCHWARMERS AND SIDELINERS ARE ABOUT TO TAKE CENTER STAGE!

The first will be last as God's promises are performed. God says, "Those that have received no recognition or applause will now be exalted in this their due time. Not to seats of man's admiration, but to the courts of God's favor. It will set them before authorities and magistrates and even judges as they speak My word in this season of restitution. They will be My Esthers and Daniels turning back the tide of unrighteousness resulting in breakthrough where there was inevitable disaster pending."

"Like Elijah, they will pray and the Heavens will be opened or the Heavens will be closed. New doors of ministry will be revealed to so many as housewives, factory workers, and retirees will have the unction for full-time ministry. They will crisscross the nations with a message of fulfillment and hope setting back the Day of Judgment for many as they preach Good News to the poor."

This is the year of the desperate, derailed, and daunted--He has not forgotten and will now outdo your wildest expectations!

"THE STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS AND THE BILLOWING CLOUDS OF HIS PRESENCE"

"I saw the doors of the White House and the Congress opening to certain prophetic ministries as a precedent of unity between Church and State begins in 2007." ( As featured on the Elijah List)

The State of Our Union

On January 23rd, 2007, President Bush gave his "State of the Union Address" as required by the Constitution of the United States, which states: "(The President) shall from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient." (Article II, Section 3). George Washington gave the first address January 8th, 1790 in New York City.

As I watched this event unfold Tuesday night, I was first struck with the magnitude of the title: "The State of the Union" and its far reaching implications that went beyond the hallowed corridors of American history. God was asking us on this 23rd day, of January 2007, "What is your State of Union?"

For the first time, I suddenly saw the amplitude of the "State of our Union or Unity" as His Body and how important it is to God. What highlighted this was the "State of our Union," as our President stood before a historic House of Representatives and Congress. This governing body could not have been more widely divided as this address was being made, and this cemented division is clearly illustrated in the general spirit of American's everywhere as our "state of union" is tested like never before.

I saw the paradox as well. This division and Divine testing of our "state of union or unity" was not confined to a political paradigm; it was for the Church as well. God is asking all of us in this hour, "What is your state of union? Are you working toward My heart and a common goal, or is it divided and becoming a House that cannot stand?"

A Vision of Billowing Clouds

At a certain point in the President's State of the Union address as he began to comment about Africa and her plight, I was suddenly arrested by the Spirit and a vision opened up to me.

I saw BILLOWING CLOUDS OF HIS PRESENCE that were literally stories high. They filled the scope of my spiritual eyes and were like nothing that I had ever seen. They appeared to me as clouds moving like giant waves filling every vacant space with their presence.

As I saw this vision unfold, I heard the voice of the Lord from the billows, "MY TRAIN FILLS THE TEMPLE!" Then I was clearly aware that these billows were not clouds, but they were the garments and presence of the Lord God Almighty Himself.

Then from the billowing train of the Lord, I heard the voice of President Bush as he declared this and that about Africa, and then I heard the Voice of the Lord again, as if the two voices were one, "WHOM SHALL I SEND, AND WHO WILL GO FOR US?" I realized at that very moment, that this was a great commission to the Church in this hour, and it required an unshakable State of Union like never before, as the Church was commissioned by God AND by our President as well. I then heard an angel declare, "LOOK! THE KING AND HIS Kingdom ARE COMMISSIONED!"

I suddenly saw in the billows of His presence, certain ministries and their strategic nature to bring about this Divine State of Union. I saw prophetic ministries and the far-reaching ramifications of their labor. I saw them as a razor-knife cutting away the grave clothes of division from the Body that kept it from the State of Union which God was declaring.

I then heard the President's voice (in the Spirit) begin to declare his blessings over these prophetic ministries, as I heard the President speak their names and he nodded in their direction. I heard many names and ministries at this time that were divine catalysts of God's State of the Union, as the Church moved toward this Great Commission. I saw the doors of the White House and the Congress opening to certain prophetic ministries as a precedent of unity between Church and State begins in 2007 unlike any other political or spiritual era before it.

I also observed some other ministries who had great presidential and governmental favor begin to fade from the picture. I knew by the Spirit that their time of favor and prominence had come to an end as this great State of the Union unfolded. It was critical even beyond my present understanding that these other ministries make way for the new.

I saw "GOD TV" as a forerunner to this State of the Union as a great golden gate was opened between our continents, and I heard the Lord say, "ONCE THERE WAS A REVOLUTION BETWEEN THESE COUNTRIES, NOW THERE SHALL BE ANOTHER, BUT IT WILL BE FOR THEIR GREATER GOOD, NOT EVIL!" I knew by the Spirit that the Lord spoke of Great Britain and The United States. This great billowing train of His presence began to fill their houses of political and spiritual representation as well. A great spiritual revolution and revival had begun...

WATCHMEN--WATCH THE WEST COAST!

I then heard something very unnerving from the Clouds of His presence. I heard the Lord say, "BEWARE OF ASSASSINATIONS AND MASS ATTACKS. FOR THE ENEMY DESIRES TO TAKE THE CITY AS ONE MAN." I was reminded then of what the Lord had declared to Gideon when he faced the great army of Midianites, "And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man..." (Judges 6:16).

I knew though that this was for evil and not for good in the context the Lord was showing me. The enemy of this State of Union would and is now concocting elaborate schemes to thwart this Union and that they would try to take down entire cities. I heard the Lord say at this time in the vision, "WATCH THE WEST COAST, WATCHMEN WATCH THE WEST COAST! WATCHMEN WATCH THE WEST COAST!" I knew too, that we had to pray IN UNITY as never before to stop the flood of the enemies attacks. A series of Scriptures leapt to my heart from the Lord as a first line of defense when the Lord said, "I WILL RAISE UP A GREATER STANDARD IN THIS HOUR! I WILL RAISE UP A GREATER STANDARD!"

"When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him" (Isaiah 59:19).

Even in moments when it seems irrevocable, the Lord will raise up a supernatural standard. Even in this current political maelstrom, a righteous standard shall prevail and everyone shall see it at once.

"Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people." (Isaiah 62:10)

"Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard..." (Jeremiah 50:2). A greater State of Union will prevail for the first time in 300 years between Great Britain and the United States. Crisis will solidify this Union like never before.

"In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old..." (Amos 9:11).

I heard the Lord say, "This is your strategic prayer as in Amos 9:11: CLOSE UP THE BREACHES! CLOSE UP THE BREACHES!'"

Let us together PRAY THIS: 'CLOSE UP THE BREACHES, CLOSE UP THE BREACHES!'"

Steve ShultzChad Taylor (many of whose words have been posted on the ELIJAH LIST), is "THE REAL GENUINE ARTICLE." I've been with him on the streets of Portland, when he would say, "Stop the car" so he could speak words of kindness to a person. I've been with him in McDonalds when his goal was more to find someone to share Christ with than eat his own lunch. Chad is not talk--He's action! Chad is a forerunner and an example to the entire Body of Christ. Please spread his testimony to all who are interested in the Harvest--who want to see it become a reality!! --Steve Shultz, THE ELIJAH LIST
