4 May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. Ps. 20

"I tell you that the new year will bring many changesto the lives of my people. For the very things that youhave sought for, your heart's desire, will finally comeunto fulfillment. For I have known about this for along time, but I have waited for its fulfillment. Forthere have been reasons for its waiting. For deepwithin the recesses of this longing, are my purposes.For there has needed to be a refinement. There hasneeded to be more of a building of my character withinyou.

The fulfillment of these things also coincides with theticking of the clock of the world affairs that aremarching out their orders upon the stage for all to see.For you are my workmanship. You will be a strongdefense against the enemy. For then as the days growdarker in the world around you, my fulfillment willcause you to bring light to a world that is dyingwithout me. "

9 The man of God sent word to the king of Israel:"Beware of passing that place, because the Arameansare going down there." 10 So the king of Israelchecked on the place indicated by the man of God.Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that hewas on his guard in such places. 11 This enraged the king of Aram. He summonedhis officers and demanded of them, "Will you nottell me which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?" 12 "None of us, my lord the king," said one of hisofficers, "but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tellsthe king of Israel the very words you speak in yourbedroom."

"Open the curtains this day, my people. Tell mewhat do you see? What do you see beyond thecurtains that you have opened? Is it a brightday filled full of sunshine, or is it a dark anddreary one?

But I tell you that there is another curtain.There is a curtain that is formed over thewalls of your spirit. Would you open it this daythat you may see? For then you would not seewith your physical eyes but the eyes of yourspirit.

You will then see into the spiritual realm.Remember that Elisha was given eyes to seeinto the enemy's camp. Remember that Ezekielsaw beyond the wall. He saw the evilpractices that were being performed by thepriests in that day.

So, if you are given eyes to see, then youwould not only see the good but the bad.So, open the curtains this day and see."

3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,4 whatis man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that youcare for him? Psalm 8

"There is nothing that I cannot do in the heavens or upon the earth.From morning till evening I pour forth my speech. The heavensdeclare my handiwork. The moon and the stars pour forth myspeech. If nature shows forth my glory then would not man aswell? Can man still show forth my glory? I tell you that he can--when he worships me in spirit and in truth. For when youworship me in spirit and in truth, then my speech is evidentin your lives. For then you can display my glory to others aswell. Let your lives exhibit these things, my people.Let your lives show forth my glory, one to another.

But I tell you that much of what I see does not show forthmy glory. For the affairs of man have ignored me. They havegone forth with their affairs thinking that they have all theanswers. Your answers may be found, but they will not helpyou along the roads of this life. This generation will seeme return. Then you will truly see my handiwork displayedin my bride. Some will mourn and weep, and others willshine like the stars in the heavens. "

2You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, knownand read by everybody. 3You show that you are a letter fromChrist, the result of our ministry, written not with ink butwith the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone buton tablets of human hearts.4Such confidence as this is oursthrough Christ before God. 2 Corinthians 3:2-4

"Is there nothing I cannot do in the lives of my servants? Isthere any problem that is too large for me? I tell you thatnothing is too difficult for me in heaven or on earth.The sun was brought into existence by my hand. The moonand the stars were set into their places as well. If I haveset the heavens in their place cannot I do much more for myservants upon this earth?

I have told you that the long Winters in your lives will slowlybe diminished. For the preparation time has been long andarduous for many of you. For the roots of many of you havenow grown deep. For now the groves where I have plantedyou will display your loveliness to the world around you.Now the oak trees will be strong. Now the willows will showtheir wisdom in each season.

For you now are the sheep of my pasture. You now are acity set upon a hill. Rejoice for the long Winters will nowreap a reward for you. The winds will still blow, but yourlimbs will remain strong. For your lives will testify of me.They will testify of me in tablets of stone, not as the ancientannals of history have exhibited in your books; but as arecord of my workings in each of you. "

7"To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These are the words of him who is holy andtrue, who holds the key of David. What he opens noone can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.8I know your deeds. See, I have placed before youan open door that no one can shut. I know that youhave little strength, yet you have kept my word andhave not denied my name. 9I will make those whoare of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jewsthough they are not, but are liarsæ‚  will make themcome and fall down at your feet and acknowledge thatI have loved you. Rev. 3

"The new year will bring many changes in the lives ofmy people around the globe. For there will be changesin employment. There will be changes in housing.There will be changes in ministry. Those who have beenin obscurity will suddenly be brought out into the open.No more will things be as you have experienced. Forwhere there were no open doors, now will they beopened. There will suddenly be an opening; an opening,where before there was none. For it is a new song thatis heard on the horizon. It is the song of promisesfulfilled. For the dreams that you have had have beenlong in the making. The longer the time is of waiting,the greater will the promise be. For it is as the fruit thatfinally becomes ripe. It has hung on the tree for manyseasons. But now it is ready to be picked. "

1After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners ofthe earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to preventany wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.Rev. 9

"I have angels standing at the four corners of the earth. Theysit there in their positions waiting for my orders to befulfilled. For the winds of the earth are set in motion.The sun shines down, and I have it set to give light to thepeoples upon the earth. But my angels are ready; they areready for the commands to be given. They are ready for theirinstruments to be set in motion. They are ready for the laststages to be set.

(The Lord showed me a scene of our world with angels setat each corner of the globe. Then I was taken back further andfurther into the distance in space. I beheld the stars andconstellations and viewed our earth from a far distant place,and the spirit of the Lord then spoke.)

Long ago I had it in my designs to create a world. A worldwhich was set against the stars. A world where man andwoman could live in peace in a place which I had created.But evil was set into the heart of man and woman; and Icame to die on a cross for the sins of all mankind. The gardenwhich once held my original design had now been changedto accommodate for the original sin which was wrought.And now man's sin has caused me to finish what was oncestarted. The end of the ages is set in motion. The starsecho what is soon to take place. Surely, this generationwill see all these things come to pass. So my angels awaitmy decree. They watch from above as the world goes aboutits affairs. They stand ready at my command. The cup ofwrath will be poured out, but there is also another cup whichI will pour out. I will pour out even more, the cup of oil formy servants so that they might not be taken unawares ofthe events which are soon to take place."

23Yet a time is coming and has now come when the trueworshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, forthey are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24Godis spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and intruth."John 4:23-24

(The Lord showed me a scene of several characters doingcircus-like things. One of them was juggling, another groupof people were doing acrobatics as they jumped on top ofsomeone and kept climbing up higher and higher. At thetop of this scene of acrobats was something that waspointing up into the sky. For I had a sense that they wereattempting to reach up to heaven by their acrobatics andentertainment, so as to reach heaven by their actions, andnot by their simple faith in God. The vision then faded.)

"The church has become an entertainment place for many.People go to be entertained and not to worship me.They want a sense of excitement for what they see, andthat is why they go there. But there are those who gothere for another reason. There are those who have cometo listen to my voice. They have come to be taught by me.Those who long for entertainment will lose their desireto know me more intimately. Come to me and learn of mefor you will then grow rich in wisdom and discernment.You will then learn how to separate the foolishness in thechurch from what is true. "

11For no one can lay any foundation other than the onealready laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12If any man buildson this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones,wood, hay or straw, 13his work will be shown for whatit is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will berevealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality ofeach man's work. I Cor. 3:11-13

"Out of the blue and into the night. I tell you church,you are entering into a new season. For the thingsthat may have appeared dormant, are actually veryactive, but they are in the ground. For they are in thesoil of your heart. For this is a time for looking at yourroots. For as in the Winter season, the trees have losttheir leaves, and they are preparing for the long Wintermonths. You need to go back and look at the basics.You need to go back and reexamine the foundationwhich you have laid. For if you have built lofty thingsand have not had them anchored down, then they maycrumble and fall.

I have said that every man must take care how hemight build. For hay and stubble is not a good materialto build with. For it can catch fire. Let it not be withcostly gems and stones either. With every word of mineyou are to build with. For the words that I give to youare to help you in this building, but prove yourself tobe a good workman. Find the stones that everyonebrings and with every stone that every man offers,construct a building for my kingdom.

Let it not rise as a great monument of human effortas those did who built the Tower of Babel long ago.For it is not meant to be human ingenuity. For it isa spiritual building that you are building for me.For when I come back for my bride I am looking forone that is without spot or blemish. The stonesand the materials are to be unsoiled from the world.For it is my spiritual house of my body workingtogether. "

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying,"Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" 9 He said, "Go and tell this people: " 'Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.' Isaiah 6

"When you speak the word from my throne then it resoundsthroughout the heavens and the earth. The word echoesthroughout the land. It causes the ears to either hear orto stop hearing. For to some the sound is as a rushing lion, but toothers it causes them grief and despair.

What is the sound that each of you hear? Do you hear the soundsof the world around you, or do you hear the sounds of rushingwaters within your soul?

I tell you that either sound will increase in you depending uponthe condition of your hearts. For in the coming months you willeither hear my word with an increasing intensity or it will bemuffled by the voices that you hear on the news.

It is said in my word that the eyes are the windows of the soul,but I tell you that your ears are what cause you to be directedto me.

Watch what you say with your mouth in this hour. For in thetongue is either life or death. For what you say with yourmouth you will believe in your heart. The tongue has thepower to heal or to hurt. But without hearing properlyyou wouldn't know what to speak. "

23Not only so, but we ourselves, whohave the firstfruits of the Spirit, groaninwardly as we wait eagerly for ouradoption as sons, the redemption ofour bodies. 24For in this hope we weresaved. But hope that is seen is no hopeat all. Who hopes for what he alreadyhas? 25But if we hope for what we donot yet have, we wait for it patiently.Romans 8:23-25
"Dreams. All of my people have dreams about their hopesand desires. They look forward to the things I've planted inthem to come to fruition. All of them look forward to these things. But how can youmake your dreams become a reality; by hoping and believingin me. Let your desires be my desires.

(The Lord showed me a person who was lying in a coffin.Their position was like any other person who would havedied with their arms crossed. Then they were awakened,and their spirit rose up from them and they looked andsaw a beautiful sunset.)

Many of your dreams have been buried in the ground, butI tell you that I will resurrect them. I will take those thingsthat you thought once were dead, and I will breathe lifeinto them. "

9 So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood atthe door of the house of Elisha.10 And Elisha sent a messenger unto him,saying, Go and awash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall comeagain to thee, and thou shalt be bclean. 11 But Naaman was wroth, andwent away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me,and stand, and call on the name of the Lord his God, and strike his handover the place, and recover the leper.12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, riversof Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not wash in them,and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage.13 And his servantscame near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet hadbid thee do some agreat thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how muchrather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?14 Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, aaccording to the saying of the man of God: and his bflesh came again likeunto the cflesh of a little child, and he was dclean.2 Kings
"There is the sound of rushing waters coming down from heaven today.They are coming down to refresh and to heal my people.The waters come forth from my throne.

The waters will not come and overtake you. The waters of this earthare tainted. But what I send is for renewal and restoration.Come to the waters, my people. Bathe in them, as I asked the leperto do. Elisha had the leper bathe in the river seven times. The waterthat I send will immediately heal you.

For the time will come when the land will be very dry. There will bedeserts where there were springs. But from my throne will I issuea rain from heaven, which is the water that comes from my throne.And these springs of water will cleanse and renew my people whostand in the midst of a dry season in that day.

27God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him,though he is not far from each one of us. 28'For in him we live and move and have ourbeing.' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:27-29
"There is no life if there is no spirit. In me you live and move and have your being. In me is to be found the life of man. There is no life apart from my son.In this world you may find life, but it is only transitory.

My people, seek an intimacy to be found with me. For the days are approachingthe final conclusion of the age. In this world you will have problems, but I will seeyou through all of them. My life that I breathe into you will sustain you and see througheach and every day.

The winds will blow, but because you have an intimacy with me, They will onlytouch you. Let my spirit move you beyond the mundane affairs of this life.Let my spirit give you a boldness beyond what ordinary men can do. For then,my exploits will be performed upon the earth, and some will surely know that thespirit of the Lord is upon the earth."
