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.

A Time of Great Awakening

Raw&RealMinistries

COUNTDOWN TO AWAKENING by Amie Rogers

“This ticking clock is a countdown! The alarm will be sounding soon and this battle you’ve been fighting, the answer you’ve been relentlessly waiting on, is coming to an end! You will not battle that thing anymore. You won’t wait for that answer any longer!” The Lord spoke these words as I once again heard the sound of a ticking clock. This clock is continually keeping time, even when we are not. It is set to Heaven’s Time! We are on Heaven’s time, not our own; and it is Perfection!

There has been a massive shift taking place this year, where Heaven is moving everything into alignment. This alignment is bringing about a great awakening! The church is marching forward on the front lines of this awakening! We are breaking out and marching forth into the purpose Heaven has always intended. Each step forward and every word spoken is being injected with His Power and Authority!

Throughout the Gospels, the disciples walked under Jesus’ authority, direction and commissioning everywhere they went.”

 “He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.” Matthew 10:1 (NIV)

“Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.” Matthew 10:8 (NIV)

We have been given and filled with Holy Spirit, now how much more do we have to walk in?! Each step forward and word spoken WILL manifest His Glory and Power!

As we approach Easter, Resurrection Sunday, we are reminded of the price paid for us all. Each day we have been gifted is a manifestation of the sacrifice made and this miraculous event! As we continue to march forward in obedience and under the Lord’s directions, we will be used to manifest unexpected and unconventional miracles!

There is a breaking apart and breaking loose of old mindsets, wrong identities and chains of the past! We are walking forward in unprecedented favor; with breakthrough in ways we’ve never seen before! I see a fresh fire rushing in over many bodies, healing areas that have been prayed over for years. There will be miraculous wealth transfers happening in the finances of those surrendered! While an increase in dreams and visions, new mantles and giftings fall on those diligently seeking Him in their quiet place!

There is a deeper wisdom coming and blueprints being downloaded to those you would never expect. There are unconventional creative miracles pouring out on the most “unlikely” people. I see unprecedented favor over each one of us; where people will literally be falling over themselves to help us accomplish the work the Lord has put our hands to. Those that have been washed over and wrecked by this love affair with God are being brought out of hiding. All those that have felt like caged birds are being released to fly – none of them are leaving in selfish ambition. They are like the dove, bringing back new life to the boat!

 

ARISE & AWAKEN by Anne Marie Molster

Much of what has been heard and felt in the spirit about a great awakening of God’s people has intensified over this month. As I sought the Lord for clarity as to what is to come, he gave me His confirmation through an incredible vision.

I was immediately taken to a dark drab city where the tall buildings stretched so high that they nearly blocked most of the sky. What little sky could be seen was cloudy and grey. As I sat watching this vision form, I was suddenly standing on a black tile floor. The contrast of the tile against my white sneakers caught my eye as an elevator door opened before me and I stepped in. No one else was inside as I took in the dark, plain walls around me. The elevator began to move upward, smoothly accelerating, not stopping until I had gone far beyond what I could image the building’s height to be. The doors opened and bright light beamed in. Before I could step out, the walls fell away. I was on a platform high above the building, the sun blazing as it rose in the east. It was gleaming brightly as it as it crested above the mountain; a rainbow of yellow, orange, pink and red.

As I looked around, I noticed many others standing on individual platforms above the top of the building they once occupied. We were all overwhelmed in the brilliance of the light. I saw the word “ARISE” form in the air before me – large white letters with rays of bright white blasting from behind in every direction. The sun began to rise higher in the sky and above it the word “AWAKEN” beamed in a yellow so magnificent I cannot find words to describe it.

We each began to cry out – not a cry that could be understood, but a massive cry of the spirit, one that cannot be contained or discerned by man, but only by the Spirit of God. The cries became louder as many others began to arise to this skyline of splendor. The cry growing louder with every voice that joined in. A shaking in the atmosphere began, yet we stood firmly planted on the high place that the Lord brought each one of us to.

As I stayed in worship in the natural, I cried out, “Come, Lord, Come! My need for you is so great! I will not stop crying out to you! My God, I long to know what you are asking of me and the many who are waiting.”

“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and yet don’t do what I tell you?” Luke 6:46 (GNB)

The Lord said, “There will be a convergence of the natural and the supernatural where many who have risen are awakening and causing the world in which their spirit is most active, to converge into the world of the natural. A power never seen by the body of Christ will rise up and awaken the universe. The Heavens will open and the cries of angels will fill the airwaves with the resounding of great joy. Heaven will begin to pour upon the Earth, transforming it into the world God originally intended it to be. Those lifted to the Heavens will leave the safety of platforms and walk amongst the people, ministering to those that are lost and wandering; not only those gathered in worship.

 Lives will be transformed in the marketplace. As the church awakens, it will begin to move. The Body of Christ will begin to walk the street once again – performing miracles – giving sight to the blind and life to those left behind for dead. This Body of Christ will grow, one believer at a time. Numbers will rise and Heaven will rejoice at those they witness receiving salvation.”

This season of Kingdom growth will be unprecedented – it will be marked by God and His miraculous ways! His presence will be undeniable, as His glory covers the Earth. As we cry out to Him, we must be willing to listen!

“IT IS TIME! ARISE, FOR I AM CAUSING A GREAT AWAKENING!” 

Hosting His Presence

By Amie Rogers & Anne Marie Molster

We have been overwhelmed with a sense of urgency; that we are in a critical and strategic moment of time that requires us to shut ourselves away in the quiet. Heaven is passionately pursuing to encounter us like never before. We are on the cusp of a massive shift that will thrust His Bride forward into all He has purposed us for, but we have to know His heartbeat, we have to be seeking His quiet.

Throughout the entire Bible, people have sought out the comfort of the Lord. At times, they simply rested and worshipped in His presence, but also relied on Him to bring victory in times of adversity. The reassurance that God was with them offered confidence, strength and hope in all they faced. God’s desire then was just as it is now. He longs to be with His people and live among them.

“Then I will dwell among the Israelites and be their God. They will know that I am the Lord their God, who brought them out of Egypt so that I might dwell among them. I am the Lord their God.” Exodus 29:42-45 NIV

Later in Acts 2, a group of one hundred twenty people intentionally shut themselves away in the Upper Room – in the quiet, awaiting the return of the Lord’s Presence. They saw and received the mighty rushing wind and tongues of fire from Heaven, resting upon them leaving, them forever changed; which in turn, changed everyone around them.

This is where we must see ourselves today. We are to establish Heaven here on Earth. Wherever we go, we must take Heaven with us! We have been empowered to heal the sick, lift up the lame and the rejected, open blind eyes and raise the dead! Church as we know it has forgotten that the power that raised Jesus from the dead is the very power within us. We are Heaven manifest. We ARE His Glory Carriers, we are the ones He’s chosen to change this world.

His presence upon us is the power that births miracles, opening doors for the signs and wonders of Heaven here on Earth! It is no mistake that there are twenty-two scriptures referencing the Lord’s presence. It is the key to opening doors to the plans He has for us.

“I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.” Isaiah 22:22 NIV

There is a level of excitement in the spirit as many begin to understand that the Kingdom of Heaven is, in fact, at hand right now! We have been given the gift of Holy Spirit so that we too can be carriers of His presence, glory and miraculous nature!

“From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near. ”” Matthew 4:17 NLT

As Jesus preached these words, we can be assured that they were quite confused. Heaven as they knew it was an inaccessible thing; something only a high priest was allowed. They could not fathom that they could easily grasp hold of it. Although they may not have understood Him at the time, as Jesus continued to put His words into action, they began to witness Heaven. Heaven turned water into wine, Heaven touched the lepers and healed them, Heaven broke bread with tax collectors (the most hated of the Jewish people), Heaven sought out the rejected and adulterers, Heaven opened blind eyes, Heaven made the lame to walk, Heaven raised the dead, Heaven miraculously fed the hungry and Heaven washed the feet of those that would deny and betray Him.

Then, Heaven went to the cross, taking on the sin, sickness and shame of all those that had gone before Him, those hanging beside Him and for ALL who were to come after Him. He received the punishment of death for it all, then three days later, defeated that death when He rose from the grave.

“And you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. “And we apostles are witnesses of all he did throughout Judea and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a cross, but God raised him to life on the third day. Then God allowed him to appear, not to the general public, but to us whom God had chosen in advance to be his witnesses. We were those who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.” Acts of the Apostles 10:38-41 NLT

When something has been defeated, we are given dominion over it. 

Just as Jesus displayed the power of the Lord in Luke 4:18, as His Father’s spirit rested upon Him, we have been given the same power and authority! The favor of the Lord has come and it rests upon each one of us!

There is a new infilling coming to us that is like that of Acts 2. One we have not seen manifest before. Fresh fire, fresh revelation, new gifts coming to ALL who are surrendered, seeking Him, carrying His Glory, dripping in love and humility.

People who have never been able to sing will get their vocal cords tuned by Heaven. New lyrics and music will be written with the sounds of Heaven resonating off each word and note. The fire of God will touch peoples’ mouths so that when they open, the words of God spoken will bring a heavy Glory that falls over everyone that hears. Deaf ears will hear the sound of Heaven and blind eyes will see the Glory of Heaven. We will see those wrecked by Heaven’s love shifting atmospheres of depression, oppression and sickness. Others will feel the healing fires of Heaven while standing in their presence. Heaven manifesting here on Earth in all its miraculous nature will become the “new normal”!

We must understand that the Lord is now moving in a much different way through the body of Christ. He is sending us out to change the world through magnificent displays of love and incredible acts of faith – drawing the attention to the supernatural existence of His power in our lifetime. It is time that we host His presence daily and show this world that Heaven truly IS AT HAND!

“Then Moses and Aaron went into the Tabernacle, and when they came back out, they blessed the people again, and the glory of the Lord appeared to the whole community. Fire blazed forth from the Lord’s presence and consumed the burnt offering and the fat on the altar. When the people saw this, they shouted with joy and fell face down on the ground.” Leviticus 9:23-24 NLT

Month of Radical Love

For the past several weeks, the Lord has been wrecking my heart with His love. I simply cannot put it into words, but, it has been overwhelming and refreshing. During this time, He began to pour into my heart some things to share.

I pray His radical and indescribable love pours over you and sticks like sweet, sweet honey.

“Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.” Psalm 63:3 (NIV)

 

“My radical Love in you is going to bring radical Healing outside of you. Where you go, I’m already there. Walk into each moment of every day in that confidence.”

“I’m not giving keys to doors, but to My Heart. As you listen to each beat, those wave lengths will be what propels you forward into all I have purposed you for.

“As you spend time with me in the quiet places, the secret places, My liquid Love from Heaven will begin to pour into the cracks of all the broken and hurt places that will then empower My Church as individuals and as a whole to go out and show Who I really am. I Am Love, I Am Forgiveness, I Am Rapha your Healer, I am Jirah your Provider, I Am Shalom your Peace, I Am Shammah your Presence in every place and circumstance. I Am your Dream-Giver and Way-Maker. Trust My Love and purposes for you are unfailing.”

“Some of you have experienced intense battles and a stripping of things you did not know were weighing you down. You have begun to see yourself moving forward. Moving more than you ever have. Heaven is decreeing “Get Ready!! You haven’t seen anything yet!” Like Joseph, I have been with you in it all, my favor resting on you like a cloak. You will be waking up in your prison, but by the night, you will rest your head in the Palace of My Promises, Plans and Purposes over your life. Your next step is only the beginning to walking in My Fullness and through you, others will taste and see that I Am Good (Ps. 34:8)”

Listen to His Love Song over you in this season.

“For you reach into my heart. With one flash of your eyes, I am undone by your love, my beloved, my equal, my bride. You leave me breathless – I am overcome by merely a glace from your worshipping eyes, for you have stolen my heart. I am held hostage by your love and by the graces of righteousness shining upon you. How satisfying to me, my equal, my bride. Your love is my finest wine – intoxicating and thrilling. And your sweet, perfumed praises – so intoxicating, so pleasing. Your loving words are like the honeycomb to me; your tongue releases milk and honey, for I find the Promised Land flowing within you. The fragrance of your worshipping love surrounds you with scented robes of white. My darling bride, my private paradise, fastened to my heart. A secret spring are you that no one else can have – my bubbling fountain hidden from public view. What a perfect partner to me now that I have you.” Song of Songs 4:9-12 (Passion Translation)

 

2018: Walking In His Fullness

A lot of us experienced quite a bit of turbulence in 2017. The end of my year was quite unsettling and to be honest, left me wondering and questioning if I had heard some things correctly. We all have that and the Lord is perfectly fine with our questions.

He had given me a word to soak on for a good part of 2017 for 2018. That word was “Fullness”. I felt overwhelmed with His goodness with all He was showing me regarding this word. Walking into His Fullness for the New Year; what a great and exciting thing! I know it is still that amazing goodness that we will be walking in because tied to that is His Full Restoration; restoration for all that was lost and/or stolen, especially familial relationships. He is going after His family this year. All those shattered and impossible relationships will find His restoration.

Another part of this truth of walking in His Fullness is that sometimes, it’s experiencing His Presence in the midst of the hard stuff. It doesn’t always mean grief and loss, but Fullness means All Encompassing. We have to understand and experience this so we can fully walk in it. Our final sentence at the end of the day still has to be, “I trust You.”

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are you ways My ways…” Isaiah 55:8 (NKJV)

 

I had a brief dream the other day that I felt led to share.

In this dream were several people, we were standing and looking around at each other and our surroundings. There was countless people surrounding us, the majority we all knew one way or another. We also had a slight look of uncertainty on our faces, but as we looked, we noticed this giant chain link in our right hands. The Lord immediately gave me a prophetic word to speak to these individuals. He said, “You have held hands with many through many seasons of your life. You will continue to seasonally hold others’ hands, but right now, in this moment, you will know whom I am linking you to. These links are for My Divine Connections, the covenant relationships that will tarry with you as I move you up and onward. You won’t have any question who those people are as I will make it obvious for you.”

This is so important for this New Year! We are going to see the Lord move us at an exponential rate in every aspect of our lives and His preparation in and around us will be in place! Things may seem or feel a bit chaotic, but His Peace will surround you and bring clarity to every moment and situation He is bringing you to and through.

I kept seeing the number 32 yesterday. Anytime that happens, I know the Lord is trying to tell me something and He took me to Isaiah 32:17-18. The verses made think of years 2017 and 2018. For all the things He is bringing us to this year, you will have His perfect Peace.

“The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever. My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.” Isaiah 32:17-18 (NIV)

 

 

The Pen is Blue!!

The other day, Mark and I were talking about how times come when you feel you’ve reached a peace over life and circumstances, over dreams and future plans, and then all of a sudden, doubt and fear of disappointment try to cover over all of it. As we were discussing this, a scene in the movie “Liar Liar” came to my mind.

If you’re not familiar with this movie, the basic synopsis is that this lawyer’s son makes a birthday wish in that his dad cannot tell a lie. So, as this unfolds and the lawyer is discovering that he can’t lie, he goes in his office, grabs a blue ink pen and tries to say that it’s red. He then tries to write out that it’s red; all ending up in failure since both avenues are lies.

As I was sharing some things with Mark, I started to talk about this specific scene in relation to the Promises & Purposes over our lives. These things, which we were specifically created for, ARE the blue pen. They are THE TRUTH! There is nothing we can say or do to change the fact that they are truth! However, when we lose sight of that, when we allow doubt to take a hold, when we cover it over with our fear of being disappointed, we try to change it. We think it’ll be easier to just say that it is “red”. These things that seem so impossible, are in fact possible, because it’s not you that has to make it happen. All you have to do is come into agreement and say, “Yes, Lord! Here I am, send me!”

I know this is a difficult thing to actually do. I know how hard it is to keep a hold of Faith and Hope. So many of us have dreamt big dreams and been left in the dust of disappointment. I know. But, the Lord wants you to know that now is the time to hope again. Now is the time to shake off past disappointments. He will not disappoint you. When your hope is IN Him, when your faith is IN Him, you will know that His plans, His purposes over your life are going to be overwhelmingly fulfilling! He gave you those dreams to inject your faith with immeasurable hope! Fight off the doubt. Fight off the fear of disappointment. Hold onto His promises and His word. These things WILL BE!

 

Exodus 14:14 “The Lord will fight for you and you shall hold your Peace.”

Romans 8:25 “But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.”

Romans 8:28 “And we know that ALL things work together for good to those who love God, to those we are the called according to His purpose.”

Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know”

Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
