THE NEW EXODUS

Heaven has moved and shifted the atmospheres to align the trajectory for our launch, for this time of harvest! As the Lord began to talk to me about this, He highlighted some parallels of us, The Church and the Israelites during their exit from Egypt. We have to realize that our “Exodus”, this trajectory shift and launch, will require us to continually and fully rely on God, His promptings and provisions so we may walk in and manifest His Fullness; everything He created us to be in this most unprecedented and exciting time! What we are being led and launched into is such a weighty and pivotal moment that will be written about and looked upon in the months and years to come.

THE NEW EXODUS

Before the Lord led the Israelites from their captive place in Egypt, He equipped them with provision from the enemy (wealth transfer) and readied them for battle (Ex. 13:17). He then directed them away from the Philistine armies (avoiding battles they weren’t ready for) by going through the desert. They still battled things like frustration and doubt but were always met with Grace, protection and miraculous provision.

How much of your life is representative of this exact scenario? The Lord miraculously removes you from your bondages and equips you for the journey you can’t quite see and a lot of times, unsure of what He has equipped you with. This is never a negative thing; it’s a learning thing – learning to hear from God and following His instructions. In the midst of your following Him, you will also see the weapons He has equipped you with for all the battles you will face.

The Israelites (numbering somewhere near a million) ALL walked out in good health (Ps. 105:37), weighed down with the gold and jewels from their captors (Ex. 12:36). The ones that held them captive were paying and begging them to leave. There will be times your enemies will be a blessing to you without even knowing it and pushing you out toward your Promised Land. There will also always be those in your Egypt that will fight your Exodus. No matter the scenario, the Lord’s favor will be upon you.

“…stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you only need to be still.” Ex. 14:13-14 (NIV) 

Take the word “Egyptians” and put in its place the name of those things you’ve been battling. It doesn’t matter if that battle has been four days or forty years. He is doing a new thing right now! You only need to be still; settling in a surrendered, trusting faith knowing He is handling every situation in your life. These things are your Red Sea Moments where He brings favor over you and confusion over all your enemies (Ex. 14:21, 24). The ones trying to hold you in your Egypt will be unsuccessful and know you will not battle these things again. The Red Sea was a one-time thing, so will yours be also.

Once you experience your Red Sea Miracle, the aftermath may not always look as you think it should, but you need to keep praising and prophesying God’s promises over yourself and situations (Ex. 15:10, 13-18). After your Red Sea Miracle and your praise in this desert, He then reveals Himself as Rapha, your Healer. He heals those bitter waters flowing in front of you and within your soul with one touch – one reminder of the power of that Tree (the Cross) (Ex. 15:23-26).

When He heals you He also feeds you. Even in the midst of your complaining and painful crying out, His desire is to feed you.

“Then Lord said to Moses, “I will rain down bread from Heaven for you…” Ex. 16:4 (NIV)

“So Moses and Aaron said to all the Israelites, “In the evening you will know that it was the Lord who brought you out of Egypt and in the morning you will see the glory of the Lord, because He has heard your grumbling against Him…” Ex. 16:6-7 (NIV)

Have you ever had moments in your life where you looked and the only description was “God was Merciful and Gracious to me”?

Because they grumbled, He was moved by His gracious, merciful Love and rained down fresh provision for them every morning. The Lord called this provision “bread from Heaven” but Moses called it “the Glory of the Lord”. Let that soak in for a moment. What God called food Moses called Glory. Moses had a revelation of relationship. This is Heavenly perspective and no longer situational; something that happens in the midst of your journey.

Your daily provisional bread from Heaven IS GOD’S GLORY! The receipt of a “simple” piece of bread needs to be taken and looked upon as something to be cherished and handled with reverence and honor. The “simple” things of God ARE His Glory and you need to carry them all as such! You are chosen to be His Glory Carrier!

This daily manna is fresh revelation of Him! You cannot hoard and hold onto yesterday’s provision to sustain you for this day or the days to come. When the Israelites did this, the day-old manna had maggots in it; completely spoiled (Ex. 16:20).

This daily provision was called an “omer”. This was the supply measurement for each person’s daily need. It was the exact measure of what they needed for that day to sustain them.

“…take an omer of manna and keep it for the generations to come, so they can see the bread I gave you to eat in the desert when I brought you out of Egypt.” Ex. 16:32 (NIV)

 Your daily need being met by Heaven is incredibly vast and weighty. Every day you receive that fresh manna, it not only nourishes you, but also is able to be kept and passed on for generations to come! You have to remember that every single thing about God and His Kingdom is Generational!

The instruction from the Lord is to take an omer to keep for generations to come. The instruction from Moses was to put that omer into a jar place in front of the Testimony (God’s Presence) to be kept for generations (Ex. 16:34).

God gifted miraculous daily provision; they took that and gave it back. That sounds a lot like Tithe! In verse 36, it says an “omer” is ten percent of an “ephah” – which equates to ten days. In the book “The Divinity Code” the definition of the number ten is: (1) complete (2) completion of order/cycle (3) Full. There is completeness and divine order in and through your life. One day of miraculous provision for your needs is something you can give back and the Lord will take and use as provision for you and generations to come!

“If the part (1/10) of the dough offered as first fruits is Holy, then the whole batch is Holy; if the root is Holy so are the branches” (Romans 11:16 NIV)

What the Lord calls Holy is absolutely untouchable. If you are tithing your life, giving back to God what He has given you – that set time you spend with Him is your “omer” and it redeems everything else. He calls it Holy and blessed for this day and for generations to come! Remember, our “omer” is our worship and gratitude. If it is anything else, the manna will spoil.

As you walk this journey and launch into the everything set before you, always remember the miraculous breaking out of your bondages, the miraculous provisions, the journey of learning who He created and purposed you to be, learning the weapons you have for battle and the miraculous fulfilling of His daily manna. May you always respond to Heaven’s promptings, taking yourself back before The Testimony so that everything you pour out is impacting for the Kingdom now and for the generations to come. May you always remember the goodness of your Heavenly Father during your Exodus and in your Promised Land.

Defend Your Lentil Field

“Next to him was Shammah son of Agee the Hararite. When the Philistines banded together at a place where there was a field full of lentils, Israel’s troops fled from them. But Shammah took his stand in the middle of the field. He defended it and struck the Philistines down, and the Lord brought about a great victory.” 2 Samuel 23:11-12

 

The other day I was having a conversation with a dear friend of mine and she brought up this story of Shammah. As she shared with me her revelation of this, I was completely blown away. This story has not left my spirit since our conversation and has unfolded in my heart to share what the Lord has given me to share.

The verse above is found under the title “David’s Mighty Men” in my Bible. There were a lot of men that battled and died with David, but two verses (four sentences) sums up one of the many mighty men that battled with David; Shammah.

Shammah saw value in this lentil field and stood to keep possession of it. He refused to allow the enemy to take it and was willing to lay his life down for it. The Lord gave him victory over the enemy and ownership of the field along with its harvest.

Some of us need to see the value in the lentil field the Lord has placed us in and stand our ground to defend it. It has immense value; fight for it. You will see the protection, provision and favor of God when you see the value and take ownership of it. This can be where you live, your marriage, your family, your finances, your healing; anything. Stand your ground and watch the victory come!

Power of One: Pioneering in Families

“See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being, I announce them to you.” Isaiah 42:9

 “But this is a people plundered and looted, all of them trapped in pits or hidden away in prisons. They have become plunder, with no one to restore them…” Isaiah 42:22

 

Recently while listening to a broadcast, the Lord gave me a vision:

I was in the midst of a large cornfield. There were a few stalks that were green, and some were ready for harvest. But, most were all withered and dead on the ground and even more had been cut down and left for rot. Yet, when I looked at the soil, it was rich and looked ready to be planted in.

 As this vision ended, I felt strongly to prophesy to those in family situations that appear sad, helpless, dead, dying and dysfunctional.

I’m here to tell you the Lord is calling YOU to pioneer and plow new ground, new standards and new traditions for your family. It doesn’t matter where in the generational lines you are in, keep planting seeds of faith with endurance into that fertile soil and watch it spring up with new life!

The old stalks still standing are the wisdom and goodness to be gleaned from the past. There is going to be new fullness of life coming to the most impossible situations! You’ve been given the Power of One to pioneer Restoration for your family!

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wastelands.” Isaiah 43:19

 The Lord has not called you to pioneer without preparing you or giving you the sound He wants you to release.

In the natural sound waves are measured based on volume, tone and movement. Sounds in the natural actually move things! Imagine what your sound does in the Spirit?! Your unique sound shifts atmospheres! When you release your sound in the spirit, it’s not the volume that is measured; it’s the movement the Lord has empowered your sound with. A quiet whisper will crumble mountains! No one’s sound is like yours, so move forward releasing it and see all things shift and move for you!
