Come Out of the Tombs of Defeat and Despair with Shouts of Victory!

“Come Out of the Tombs of Defeat and Despair with Shouts of Victory!”
by Emily-Rose Lewis, Charlotte, NC

This was sent to me on the Elijah List email list, and it bears witness to me, so I am reposting it. Please subscribe to Emily-Rose blog: https://desertroseinbloom.wordpress.com/2017/05/05/prophetic-word-may-2017-restoration-redemption-and-replacement/

Restoration, Redemption and Replacement!

The Lord says, “I have raised you from the dead. I have redeemed your life from the pit and am restoring to you the things that you have had stolen or forfeited to the enemy.”

“The month of May is a month of restoration, redemption, and replacement. I am giving you revelation into the deeper things of the Spirit to assist in this transfer of power. Rise up. Come out of the tombs of defeat and despair. Cry out with shouts of victory. Remove your grave clothes and stop sleeping among the dead. Come out from among them,” declares the Lord of hosts.

“I am a God of the living. I am breathing life into what was once dead. Speak to the dead dry bones, ‘Arise!’ Speak to the weak and wobbly knees, ‘Be strong!’ Come out. Rise up. Remove and lay aside the grave clothes. I am clothing you with those things that pertain to the abundant life that I have promised you by My Word. Do you believe in My redemptive power, My power to replace that which has been lost or stolen, My power to restore those things that have been destroyed?

“This month is a month of divine replacement. I will replace the old with the new. The dead with the living. What is lacking with overflow. Sorrow for joy. And garments of praise for your former shame. Divine replacement will take place through My Spirit and My Word.

“Respond to this revelation of restoration, redemption, and replacement by faith. Release the dead, the old, the empty, the broken, the loss or lost, the shame, the burden, or the lack with confident anticipation of the divine replacement that I am pouring out over My people in May. Respond with release. Respond by faith. Respond in rest. Begin to praise Me for the victory that has already been won.”

Renew Your Confidence in the Goodness of God

Allow your confidence to rise beyond your former understanding of the goodness of God. Hope has deferred because of prayers that seemed to go unanswered and have challenged your faith. There is a shift happening, even this month, from waiting on God to respond to you, to an understanding that God is waiting on you to respond to His Word and His love. I am seeing long held beliefs about the Lord being shifted in the depths of your consciousness to better align with the truth of God’s heart toward you.

A revelation into the accusations that have been leveled against God’s character by your unbelief will bring repentance, restoration of relationship, and divine alignment with the purposes of God in your life. Those who are determined to trust in and rely on, not their own understanding, but the Lord of Heaven and earth, are going to be receiving an outpouring of His glory and grace. Faces that were formerly covered with shame, despondency, and despair will brighten in the light of His countenance that will be clearly revealed to those that have eyes to see.

Renounce all doubt and wavering. Draw near to God and resist the whispers of the enemy reminding you of your past experiences. Do not look through a faulty lens that is darkened by your refusal to trust in God’s grace and promise to bring good out of all things for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.

Come Out From Among the Tombs

Tombs marked “regret,” “shame,” “cursed,” “poor,” “neglected,” “rejected,” “ugly,” “weak,” and “broken” are giving up their dead!

“Come out from among the tombs of the past,” says the Lord of hosts, “what was, will never be again. Today is the day of salvation. Forget what lies behind and press on to the good things that are ahead.”

This is a season of harvest. Hard work and faith will yield massive results in May. The rain has come. The rain of the Spirit of God is pouring down for those to receive. The rain of God’s blessing and glory are falling!

Come out from among the dead and walk in the newness of life that Christ Jesus died for you to have. Peace is now! Life is now! Jesus says, “Come out.”

Obedience to His commands will release you. Your will is no longer captive to sin and death. Make up your mind to choose life, and the grace of God will flood your soul, enabling you to live life to the full. The glory and life of God will fill you up and overflow into the lives of others. You are called to be a container of the glory of God here in the earth. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

Prayer! The Thunderings, Lightenings, and Earthquakes of God

prayer-thunder
As we all recover from our turkey feast here in America, what began as a movie night with my daughter ,last night, turned into a deeper and deeper burden to pray, and so I spent the wee hours of the morning, crying out to God, realizing Israel is on fire, Standing Rock is of critical importance to heaven, and we have a President elect here in America that is interviewing, and will hire 4000 leadership positions here in the next couple of months, that will radically affect the earth. Demons do not sleep, and as always, they are active, trying to negotiate with wicked men to bring their agendas to pass in the earth, and we, the church, are the only thing stopping them. As I read these verses, this thought blazed across my mind:

Prayer = Thunderings, Lightenings, and Earthquakes of God
warrior lightening
Rev 8:3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

I love these verses. Though I do not pretend to fully understand them, we are blessed by simply reading them!

We see angels worshipping with us, the saints of God here, bringing incense before the throne of God, that mixes with our prayers, as an offering to our King!

Then God answers, and receives fire from the alter of God, and he casts it into the earth!

Voices, Thunderings, Lightenings, and an earthquake result!
acts-2-17
Makes me think about Acts 2: 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

Servants prophesy: God honors the Word He places in their mouth with wonders in the heavens and signs in the earth.

Looks similar to the way God does things:

Prayer goes up, with praise, worship, and according to this verse in Revelation with incense (worship?) from angels, and then God answers with power.

Notice the order of the answer here: Voices, then Thunderings, Lightenings, and an Earthquake.

thundered

Let’s look at the cry of king David recorded for us in Psalms 18:

In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God:
he heard my voice out of his temple,
and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

Then the earth shook and trembled;
the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken,
because he was wroth.
There went up a smoke out of his nostrils,
and fire out of his mouth devoured:
coals were kindled by it.
He bowed the heavens also, and came down:
and darkness was under his feet.
10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly:
yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.
11 He made darkness his secret place;
his pavilion round about him were dark waters
and thick clouds of the skies.
12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed,
hail stones and coals of fire.
13 The Lord also thundered in the heavens,
and the Highest gave his voice;
hail stones and coals of fire.

Seems that prayer can release the prophetic utterance that releases signs, wonders, and miracles: anointed words that produce or release the power of God in the earth!

Zec 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
not be might
Those of us in the Word of Faith camp are surely confessing the written Word of God already, in prayer, supplication, and violent faith in the earth, yet could it be that there are utterances in the Holy Spirit, associated with sovereign timings of heaven, that release prophetic events, and end time signs and wonders?

The exciting thing about all of this, is that these are the end times, and I want to be one of those in God’s face, positioning myself to be used of Him, in any area He should so choose.
miraculous-prayer
Let’s Pray:
‘Father, we praise and worship you today, seeking again your face, and your perfect will for our lives and the earth. Release to us, your voice in the earth, and show Yourself strong today, in signs, wonders, miracles! We receive the ‘voices’ of heaven, determined to walk in truth, clean, pure, and undefiled from fleshly, demonic, or worldly influence, in your name we pray Lord Jesus! Amen’

True Prophet

True Prophets!
true-prophet
I have been thinking about true and false prophets and prophecy lately, and just read a couple books by recognized prophets in the Body of Christ. This verse kind of jumps out at me, so I’m posting it.

Ezekiel 33: (The Voice)
30 But you, son of man, your own people are talking about you everywhere—in the streets and at doorsteps—saying to their kinsmen, “Come listen to what Ezekiel is saying. He has a word from the Eternal.” 31 They come to you, just as people flock to see someone famous. My people sit at your feet and seem to hang on your every word, but they never apply those sacred instructions to their own lives. For they act as they speak—with lustful desire—and think only of how they’ll make a profit. 32 To them you are nothing more than a gifted singer of lustful songs, a teller of tales, a master of instruments! They hear what you say but fail to put any of it into practice. 33 But when the messages you’ve given them actually come true—and I assure you, everything you tell them is going to come true—they will realize a true prophet has been among them.

Quietly, daily, speak the voice of the Lord into the earth, and let Him shake that which His authority alone can shake…

Let’s Pray:
‘Father, I come before you today, and before You Jesus, God the Son, King of all the prophets, recognizing that the Spirit of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy. Jesus, lead me and guide me in all truth, and protect me from false prophets, shepherds, apostles, and those that would make merchandise of me, my gift, and my family. Bring into my life, present truth, and may I be rooted and grounded in Your Word and Your truth Father, that I not be led astray, in any way. In Your name, I pray, Lord Jesus, Amen!’

Seeking God in these last days!

2nd-coming
2 Peter 3;3 ¶ Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2 Peter 3:3-12 speaks about the second coming of the Lord.

Though no one knows the day and the hour, seems Christians forget that Jesus is coming back, and these are the last day that we are living in.

Heb 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

Ministers are diligently preparing you for this event, that looms upon the curtain of time, imminently. No man knows the day and the hour, but surely the prophetic signs are in the earth, showing us clearly that the time is now!

Mt 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,
days-of-noah
So many give no thought to eternal life and the things of God!

Scoffers, mockers, fools thinking that the second coming of Jesus is like some sort of fairy tale or legend, made up by creative imaginations! Not the tooth fairy, Santa Claus, or Disney story: Jesus is real, and His kingdom is among us, in great power!

Lu 12:31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Lu 13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
It is time to again, seek the Lord, and not become weary in well doing.

De 4:29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.

Ps 14:2 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
understand-and-seek
Isa 26:9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

How well I have learned that pain can be a wonderful instructor – truth rejected has consequences…
Isa 55:6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

Jer 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Zep 2:3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.

Heb 13:14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

There is a king, and a kingdom violently moving in the earth. It is a time for passion and zeal for the Lord of Hosts, to find His specific plans, purposes, for your life, for time in the earth is short.

Today, as I read: This is what I feel strongly: Seek Him, Jesus, your king. It is not time for business as usual, complacency, or the natural order of life. Seek Him, and whatever He says: Do it!
col-pray
Let’s pray: ‘Father, I have given you my life. Help me to carve out the time I need, to read your Word, pray in other tongues. Send ministry into my life, to feed my spirit, and may I be diligent to seek you again, with passion and zeal, that You might be found. Speak to me, touch me, order my steps, and show me the things that are of critical timing for your specific plans for me and my family. Let me not become complacent or comfortable with life as usual. Meet with me Father, as only you can, in your name I pray, Lord Jesus! Amen!’
