 Word of the Lord for April 2014 -- By: Prophet Phyllis Ford
 March 27, 2014

There are times when I am in a seek before the Lord and he will begin to put down what I call bread crumbs. As I carefully follow them I come into the fullness of the revelation that He is showing me. A couple of days ago, He said that we were entering into the season to “rear up the tabernacle.” Immediately I thought about the significance of Passover as we are approaching the feast in the month of April. I found myself in the middle of a dream searching to find something that was valuable to me and others, and I had been assigned to go get it. In the midst of the journey I found out that I had gone beyond my course but it was in that place that I found an object of great value. I knew it was a “key bread crumb” telling me to keep going and that I will understand more as I continue to seek the Lord.

This morning in another dream a fresh bread crumb was found. A large group of people were looking into what appeared to be a time capsule. They started discussing what it is, where it was discovered, and why. The mystery of the time capsule appeared to be serious. But I felt future things would develop becoming more serious than the capsule itself. Although it required examination I was then urged to move beyond it so that I would not give way to distraction. I then inclined my ear to hear what God was saying concerning His people.  

The term “rear up the tabernacle” means “to prepare, to set up, or to build the tabernacle,” while they were in the wilderness. The preparation entails the fastening of the sockets, the setting up the boards and putting the bars and the pillars in place. All necessary items were to be set in order. By allowing distractions, we exclude the vital answers needed so that we might stand in times like these. What we are seeing now in the world is the birthing of things that have been going on long before this time as a result of plans conceived in secret. The question is now, “What is the Lord saying?” and “What does He want us to plan for our future?”

The last bread crumb rested on the revelation that the Lord is calling His people out. Not just to say it but to walk in the sincerity of His purpose concerning His word and His wisdom as represents of Christ in the earth. We can’t claim to be a kingdom of priest in this hour and not walk in the integrity of what it represents. We have been operating out of the understanding of worshiping the Lord through the eyes of seeing the tabernacle of Moses but the Lord begin to reveal to me that we must grow and transition beyond that into the rebuilding and reestablishing of that which is to come, which is the Tabernacle of David.           

His words: “I am calling you to consecrate yourselves, to seek me with all your heart, your soul and your mind. Because the resolve, the help that is needed now, the solution to the answers you seek, can only be found in my presence. There has been a lack of integrity that is now being restored amongst my people and I am holding them accountable to represent true intimacy and the abiding in me that will release deeper revelation that will dispel the deception and lies of man’s dogma, with it greater clarity will come. Much of what you see in the world carries confusion, chaos and fear. Without my presence many are trying to find peace and consolation. But my peace can be found in my word and in the realization of its meaning. The priority of seeking after things will continue yield to much frustration. But my peace will only be found in the place where my truth reigns in the mercy of my Love.”

“Make all necessary adjustments in order to gain access into where you need to be in me. There you will find strength and you will walk into realms that I have prepared for you to acquire at this time. Understand that even though the disciples had been with me and heard my teachings and received much revelation when they were in the boat with me and the wind and waves became strong and adverse that they did not have the faith needed to withstand the trouble. This is a time to be disciplined and allow me to build upon you what is required so that no matter what happens you will hold on in the face of adversity.”

“New paradigms and patterns are being developed for evangelism to deal with much of the perishing but it must begin with you carrying out my purposes and responding to the needs of others. You will only be able to bring others through what you have yourself overcome. The emphasis for laborers in the harvest field is much needed now and I am calling those who must stand accountable. I am looking for those who will lead in this endeavor, to assist others who will learn and come forth in great strength. The emphasis now is to walk in my love and lay down your life for the brethren, it is paramount. (1 John 3:16)”

“Many of you have asked how will your needs be met and how will to overcome the trouble that has seem to affect your circumstances. The keys to getting to the solutions are within your circumstances and will come out of your compassion to help direct others into the place where they will find me. Some of your solutions are contained in the assistance of others’ struggles. You are living in a time of great fulfillment, but you are a part of a whole, you are connected to others who are like-minded and like-spirited. Many have endured, others are waiting, and others have also paid a price. In the coming days you will walk through doors that have seem like walls to you in the past, others will follow, for I have ordained in you to be a testimony of my love.”

The Tabernacle of David

 We are fully aware of the significance of the tabernacle of Moses that was built according to God’s specifications in Exodus. When the Lord speaks to us concerning the tabernacle of David what do we see in today’s understanding and what is the Lord saying to us. The tabernacle of David consists of a tent pitched in Jerusalem, the ark of the covenant was placed there from Obededom’s house. Ten years prior to this the tabernacle of Moses stood and the duties that were required in the place were performed daily, but was without the presence of the Lord because the ark was not there.

This principle speaks volumes. The form was there, the work was there, but the presence wasn’t there, yet it continued. It was only until David resolved in His heart and was determined to put the ark in its’ rightful place. (Psalm 132:1-5). Now the ark was in the tent and David lived there, his life was open and transparent with the Lord. He appointed priest to minister before the Lord continually. What was the Lord saying to us?? He is raising up David’s in the land and He is not looking for a form of worship of just going through the motions without true intimacy. We can worship the Lord but if we have locked him out of our everyday existence and invite him in only when we want to go into the place to be with him, (which is a ridiculous thought).  Are we in denial? Don’t we know that if we try to deny Him access to where we are and what we are doing that we are only fooling ourselves. We know that he sees all and knows all and we might as well be open and come clean before Him. How can we hide from Him? The reality is we need to hide in Him. If we do we will begin to deal with things differently. These are heart issues. How many of us stand in our churches but are devoid of His presence and we are just going through the motions.

Is the real ark laid out in a field where the Philistines took it? Is it at Obededom’s house? Have we involved ourselves in so many traditions until we have the framework of the tabernacle but the ark is far from us, and do we know when it left? The Lord said, Some people feel so empty right now but He is also saying that if we are, we must be determined to go back and get what we need the most in our lives. Because without His presence no matter what is declared and decreed over us, our lives will be weighed down by discouragement and frustration that will try to enter in and take away our joy. No presence, no joy. Those who understand and walk in this intimacy must lead others into the place where He is waiting with open arms.

David did not put the ark back into the old tabernacle but the ark dwelled with him. There was great intimacy between the Lord and David. It became a vital part of His life. (Ps 23:6, Ps 27:4). There was continual dialog between them. Songs to Him came out of the stillness of prayer, times of joy and even sadness, and repentance from the times that David whispered promises that he would never leave the Lord, even David asked Him to never take His Spirit from him. He abided with Him and the Lord’s presence filled that tent. The tent was not compartmentalized but everything was clearly before Him and he was visible to the Master’s eye. We must transition not in form but within our hearts.
There are three purposes to consider:

1.       Priestly dimension focused on the concept of Davidic worship (returning to our first love in both integrity and heartfelt transparency.) Spontaneous worship making our dwelling places a place for Him.

2.       Prophetic dimension focused on the release of His utterances, His sound, His words and His revelation to us as a people. (Acts 2: 17-21.)

3.       Kingly dimension focused on the Apostolic Ministry to set in order sound doctrine and the work of the Kingdom in the fulfillment of the Great Commission, which includes the World Evangelism, House of prayer for all nations, and Missions: from the dwelling place to the marketplace.   

May the people of God restore in their hearts the importance of prayer and worship in the intimacy of His presence until He comes and everything will flow out from that well-spring which is the Father’s Heart.

Favor & Doors 
At this time the Lord will rest upon those who reverence and worship Him with favor. Doors will open and access will be granted to places that were not open before. Connecting & adjoining doors will open up in the marketplace to fund meaningful projects that will assist others to effectively advance in this hour. Kingdom relationships will collaborate with others to strengthen the work and manage the mission field with the funds necessary to implement them. Now is the time.

   
When we come before Him as true worshipers we will see the greater fulfillment as spoken in:

Amos 9:11-15 (NASB)
“In that day I will raise up the fallen [a]booth of David, And wall up its breaches; I will also raise up its ruins And rebuild it as in the days of old; That they may possess the remnant of Edom And all the [b]nations who are called by My name,” Declares the Lord who does this.  “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “When the plowman will overtake the reaper And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; When the mountains will drip sweet wine And all the hills will be dissolved.  “Also I will restore the [c]captivity of My people Israel, And they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them;  They will also plant vineyards and drink their wine, And make gardens and eat their fruit. “I will also plant them on their land, And they will not again be rooted out from their land Which I have given them,” Says the Lord your God.”

Acts 15: 15-17 (NASB)
“With this the words of the Prophets agree, just as it is written, ‘After these things I will return, And I will rebuild the [a]tabernacle of David which has fallen, And I will rebuild its ruins, And I will restore it, So that the rest of [b]mankind may seek the Lord, And all the Gentiles [c]who are called by My name,"

 Word of the Lord for March 2014 -- By: Prophet Phyllis Ford

March 3, 2014

I recently saw in the realm of the Spirit a vision where I was looking down at the landscape below. I focused onto the traffic patterns of the land, the people below and the vehicles. They were moving very rapidly. As I observed it, the Lord began to speak to me concerning how the movement of what was going on was relevant to the momentum of His plan. I could see the detailed plan that was before us and how His purposes would be walked out in various areas, how the marketplace would affect the true church and the true church would be connected to the overall kingdom purposes in this hour.

He uttered to me: “Divine connections/Josephs Arising, Spiritual Pollination and the Corporate anointing. In these next three months, from March, April, May we will see how the three months and the three terms will work together and how they are related.” It is important to understand what has occurred and is happening on varying levels. Individuals will be arriving at their appointed times to accomplish their own purposes that will connect with others. Each will intertwine according to what the Father has placed in their hearts which will carry out key assignments that are connected to their destiny. (To say that we are all in the same place doing the same thing would not be a true statement.) But if we would envision a chess board with various dimensions, it would be a more apt description. Where we wind up has everything to do with our obedience to the Lord and our own determination to walk in the now of our lives, while refusing to be bound and restricted in our thinking based on things that played out in our past experiences.

This was His words to us: “I have taken that which has been in the hands of the enemy and placed them where they rightly belong. Know that your inheritance is laid up before you. But you must take possession of that which is yours, says the Lord. This is so that the coming work maybe fully established concerning your life. That ground work must be embraced, that which is needed is before you. You must follow through because it is key to fulfilling your destiny. So as you see a changing of the guard, a change in the atmosphere of greater glory, and the fulfillment of my word which I have spoken to you and breathed upon you. I speak to you from the heavens into your very being to hold on with faith and diligence to what I have given you. It will be a witness to you and many others who have endured trials in the fiery furnace of affliction. It will testify that you have overcome and now having a mind to continue along the course as one coming out of the ashes. It is your time to be refreshed, restored and renewed. Many who have yet to receive it will say—I long to be free, I want to live again and they shall overcome and rejoice in the same liberty.”

“For this is a time when your position will shift from where you were waiting and believing, even believing yet declaring, to actually becoming. Be watchful of distractions and scenarios that will try to discourage you. This has to do with the level of warfare that is literally being waged against my people to convince you that things haven’t changed. But know these words are a part of a deception to try to get to give up what you have already received. Know that you already possess what you need and the warring has increased because of the seriousness of the work that you have entered into, which will accomplish great things. Don’t believe the lie. Address it forcefully and turn your face from it and remain in your place of faith and prayer before me. WAR against it and overcome it.”

1 Timothy 1:18 KJV This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;

In my time of intercession and prayer, I begin to seek the Lord concerning this enemy who lie against God’s people, who has a problem with spiritual authority and takes words to twist and deceive. One who is haughty, arrogant and prideful. When you study Job 41st chapter, and Isaiah 27 as you look closely you will find that contained within it is the spirit of Leviathan. It is an enemy of spiritual authority whose passive-aggressive attacks come against those who have been called to God’s assignment to release the wisdom of God to His people. Know that there are ways to overcome it.

The wisdom and truth of God’s word, True Worship, the sword of the spirit (the word of God) when skillfully wielded against the deception that is spoken. These weapons have the ability to destroy its works. This spirit of Leviathan also uses control and manipulation in order to obtain high ranking positions. Religious condemnation that it insinuates tries to counter the very work and move of God.

It hates deliverance, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the gifts of the Spirit and will point skeptically to the flow of the God’s Glory and question: Is this really a move of God? It is also an accuser of the brethren. It is an end-time enemy.   (This is my opinion but it was revealed to me in prayer, so you must search the scriptures, while becoming aware of these end-time enemies and address them. Move on and don’t allow fear to keep you from confronting these works of the enemy.) Luke 10:19, 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (more on this on my website)

http://www.carpenterstouch.org/Leviathan.html

“In this hour you will see a revealing of mysteries previously spoken of, which were hidden but now are becoming evident now in these end-times. The real truth is that my people are now being flooded with LIGHT. There is a purification process that many are coming through as many yield (humble themselves) before me. You are being prepared with the oil of my presence and the fragrances of intercession and true worship. I am stirring their gifts and they are understanding the truth of my word in a greater measure. This is a part of the fulfillment of great things to come. Be joined to me as my bride and you will experience great favor with me, says the Lord. But remember you wilI have great challenges to come and you must continue to walk in obedience with what I have taught you. Be aware that persecution will come. Know I have placed in you what you need to accomplish and overcome them. Disobedience and slothfulness will cloud your discernment. I am looking to you to be ready, to stay the course no matter what. Who is willing to give all for the sake of kingdom? Time is short and acceleration is the order of the day.  A life poured out is key for a people to be delivered and saved. What a glorious time to be awaken, alive and willing to move forward with my will, my plans and my purposes.”

The mysteries of the gospel are now being revealed in the end-times. (Romans 16:25-27, Ephesians 3:3-5, Philippians 2:9-11.)

Romans 16:25-27 Now to Him Who is able to strengthen you in the faith which is in accordance with my Gospel and the preaching of (concerning) Jesus Christ (the Messiah), according to the revelation (the unveiling) of the mystery of the plan of redemption which was kept in silence and secret for long ages, But is now disclosed and through the prophetic Scriptures is made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, [to win them] to obedience to the faith, To [the] only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ (the Anointed One)! Amen (so be it).

1 Corinthians 2:7-10 (KJV) “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

Concerning the three, Divine connections, Spiritual Pollination, and an Corporate Anointing .

Over these next three months March, April and May there will an unveiling, revealing, complete healing and a sealing of that which I am doing in this season.  The Lord said, “There will be a well of resources unveiled for my people that I have set in place in store for them. I have prepared these things for the hearts of those that will walk in humility and unity. Healing will come in the reality of truth that is being released to those who are willing to hear and obey accordingly. The sealing will take place in the glorious evidences of the Shekinah glory, in the infillings, in the realm of the spirit as you receive more, not just information, not just visitation but the Habitation of God in us.” (Ephesians 2:22)

Divine Connections/Joseph’s Arising: To the point that we are divinely connected to the Lord, we will be connected to others to fulfill divine assignments within the kingdom. This unity that will be a coming together will come with power because they are ordained of the Lord. It will be a gathering and a calling and even a joining for the purposes of the Lord to be completed, a foundation laid, and as an uprooting of a major stronghold in regions. It will be like a spring, then a brook, and a river flowing of living waters. The unity will form a unit (as in military terms) forming to accomplish difficult issues as well as provide answers and address future crisis. These connections will be found in the marketplace to the local churches and those of means to set up future cities of refuges and as well to develop even storehouses. It will come from one group of believers to another group, from the connection of ministries to help communities, from the wealthy to those ministries. The need of finances will come to further advance the work within the local body. Within that the Joseph’s will arise to add to that which needs more strength and assistance.  It is key to setting things in order and funding that which is important to kingdom expansion. Don’t look at these changes to be far from your everyday affairs, but know that they are interwoven and are vitally connected to parts of everything that is going on. As you connect you operate as part of the whole and as the whole is blessed and increased so shall we be.   

Spiritual Pollination/Cross Pollination: How does the harvesting of any garden or crop come to yielding its best. One way is the process of pollination. But how does that look in the spirit operating in the body of Christ. Pollination is the process by which pollen is transferred in the reproduction of plants, thereby enabling fertilization and reproduction. So when the body of Christ comes together with one heart, one spirit, in one praise and one cry before the Lord. The flow of worship and the declaring of the God’s truth on His word and creates/births that new sound into the atmosphere which prepares for an Open Heaven and revival fires to burn. The mutual enrichment, the anointing of Abba’s strength and heart is experienced by those who are hungry for the things of God. The greater the glory, the greater downpour of signs, wonders, and miracles, faith is activated and the joy of the Lord is poured out like rain until all that are present become drenched.

Corporate Anointing: It is best experienced from a synergy of anointed people who have been strategically gathering into one place. They don’t have hidden agendas but they are drawn by the desire to become more like Him. They are eager to gather under an umbrella of worship. They are joined with a heart for reconciling people to their God. They are fearless and radical. They are ready to advance, implement, even to do battle in fervent watching/praying as the army of the Lord. You will see the fivefold ministry but these people are limited by titles but they are mighty weapons in the hand of our God. Amongst them you will see apostolic prophetic intercessors, watchmen, gatekeepers, those who are creative in the arts from dance to literal expressions of painting on canvas and much more. As the liberty and power of God enters the sanctuary the anointed presence of the Lord fills the temple of the place and of His people. These will be great times containing the ebb and flow of the Lord, and in the midst of it, will come healing, restoration and refreshing. The people will come in one way and go out to never be the same as before.

“In this hour you will begin to see Gatherings where the heavens will touch the earth, and declare new realities! Days will quickly roll into weeks and weeks into months (during these next three months) some circumstances will occur so suddenly that one day you will find yourself here and literally overnight you will find yourself in a whole new place. Manifestation will come forth out of the Glory. Stay in my glory, says the Lord. Pray in the glory. This is a time to walk into and out from My Glory and there will come great favor, there will come my answers, and you will know that the time that I spoke to you in times past is NOW. For this is the set time, the appointed time, it is here before you, says the Lord.”

Psalm 102:13 “Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favor her, yea, the set time, is come.”

In my time of prayer the Lord said to pray fervently for the peace of Jerusalem. As we pray for her, have compassion upon her we will receive double-favor and the Joy of the Lord will be our portion. This is the time!!!

Intercessors pray concerning this situation concerning the Ukraine---the Lord spoke a word previously about coming conflicts between US and Russia/Putin. The link to follow that word in September 2012 is in the prophetic intercession at the end of the word.

  Word of the Lord for February 2014 -- By: Prophet Phyllis Ford
 January 29, 2014

“As you come into this month of February you are entering into the most significant month of this year although it is the shortest it will carry the heaviest impact. Because you are coming into a “get out of the boat and walk upon the waters with me season.”  Even as challenges present themselves, begin to say to yourself, what I am seeing now that I can overcome it because everything that I will encounter now is being presented to take me into a higher level of faith and anointing. Your faith will increase, it is growing, it is building because the work before you is greater. The challenges will be frequent but the outcome will carry greater rewards and the advancement will cover much ground for the times ahead.”

Matthew 14: 25- 29 “And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.”

“Know that I have placed some of you ahead of the others to lead, to get into the press to move forward, push through and advance on every side. This is a pioneering work and I have set forerunners who are positioned to assist in the shifting of great things to come.  And they will go before you to proclaim the works of my hand. To speak of things that seemed impossible and will encourage others to dream again. They will let my people know –it can be done, it will be done, move forward, only believe, don’t stop now, you are nearer than you have ever been in victory. You will overcome obstacles that are being presented now before you.  It is your faith initiating and your hope anticipating that will bring forth manifestation now in a very real and very powerful way. That which is being birthed in the heart of those who hear my voice and act upon what I have spoken without hesitation will produce the promises that I have shown them in times past.”  

“Know that this time will not be exempt of trouble, obstacles nor hindrances but your ability to deal with them will determine the way and the access to things that I am preparing for you now and in the time to come. So look and behold me, your God as I encourage you, speak to you with words of wisdom so that you may accomplish more and seize the moment. Although this month is shorter than the others it will yield forth great expectations. I will speak to you in the night seasons words of revelation through simple truths that will unlock answers that you will need. You must know how to accomplish important issues to bring necessary resolve at this time.”

“As you enter in I will release unto you keys that are pertinent to your journey—and you will have what you need to conquer and deal with the problems that face you now. Don’t be afraid to drop old methods of doing things and pick up new ones that provide more solutions than before. Understand you have more options than you know. There are more ways to do what needs to be done. I have given you a heightened creativity--a keen flow for those who seek my presence.   These are the new dynamics that are being placed before you so that you can obtain the goals that are being established now.”

 

“Don’t allow people’s attitude concerning their own scenarios hinder your progress. . .some things are more expedient  than you think.  Stay focused on what I have emphasized for you to do now for I am here for you with my grace so you will walk into this New Day Reality. Many things that you have endured helped you, motivated you, and strengthened you to get to where you are now. So rise!!”

Isaiah 60:1 Amplified Bible “Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!”

*Stay before my presence for I am releasing keys to wealth spiritually and naturally so and which will grant access to your future. Many plans, dreams, and goals will be harvested and produce a great yield in the future. Even in times of famine. Do not squander what I release into your hands once you receive it.  It will be given to you to prepare you for what is coming.” 

“I shall release many who have been captive for long periods of time and they will walk out of places of deep imprisonments. This is the time for the captives to be released spiritually and naturally –intercessors pray them forth for now I am breathing into them new life. There will be great healing and deliverances from past experiences that will move my people forward to help others who have experienced similar things but now they have overcome.”

“Within these next six months, change will come to usher in new warriors who are not afraid to live, for the sake of righteousness. In the midst of these things, I will sow good strong apostolic/prophetic leadership into lands, and regions. They release the strategies of Kings and will take territories for me, says the Lord. They have not been designated, nor picked by the religious status quo. But know that I am doing a quick work and cutting it short in righteousness.” 

“For I am raising up a unique people, in this unique hour that I will sow into various regions. They will produce a great harvest of souls coming into the kingdom. Many of these assignments are now being released into the church—they will exemplify unity in diversity, harmony in an hour of uncertainty, and carrying a strong integrity in a time of a falling away. They will come forth with great zeal and boldness to bring forth even more warriors into my great army. Their uniqueness is itself, a strategy within a strategy, for I am raising up a radical troop of worshippers, prayer warriors and watchmen who will war and who will win. They will be known as a strategy in the hand of their God, carrying weapons of war and they will be an end-time harvest instrument in the land, says the Lord.”

Isaiah 41:15 “Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.”

 Prophetic Intercession

Warning: These were things that the Lord spoke to me during deep times of prayer and travail. “There are things that are brooding from now to March’s end. Watch & pray for the enemy will attempt to set up destructive plans against the US. Also more trouble will arise out of the Middle East if there was ever a time to pray for the peace of Jerusalem it is now. Stay alert in these hours. There is much that is about to change concerning leadership on several fronts. There will be change because the time has come to shift into place those who I have ordain for this hour. You will see it upon the land and you will see it also in the church.” 

“Spiritually and naturally so, in the church and in the government, there is about to be a changing of the guard.  Some governments will experience change as a result of coming judgment, says the Lord, For I shall overturn, overturn, overturn it.”

(There is a scripture that references that statement (see below)—unfolding this portion of the word is not yet fully clear. However I believe some prophetic signpost that will unveil things are about to occur within this year. It will help us understand, what is this coming trouble that prophets have been aware of and concerned about? I believe we are seeing some of puzzle pieces come together but there are some hidden factors that have not been taken into consideration. As we Pray we will understand and obtain more clarity and as the time approaches we will see the big picture as it is revealed before us. So I didn’t omit it and maybe by releasing this part of the Word that was given and it may render a deeper understanding as to how things connect concerning the clashing of the Babylonian systems along with the spirit of Anti-Christ that will war against the Kingdom of the righteous.)    

Ezekiel 21: 25-27  And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,  Thus saith the Lord God; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high.  I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.

Vision: I saw arrows in a great number that made the sky look dark and I asked the Lord what is this?? The Lord said that He is raising up a people that will send forth arrows that will counter the very plots/plans of the enemy.

2 Samuel 22:14-15 “Jehovah thundered from heaven, And the Most High uttered his voice. And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; Lightning, and discomfited them.”

Psalm 127:3-5 “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.”

Would you sow a special seed into this work of the Lord during a month of such great possibilities!

 Word of the Lord for January 2014 -- By: Prophet Phyllis Ford
 January 1, 2014

“Your ability to move forward is a necessity now. Be ready to face major challenges by moving forward and not allowing yourself to be stifled.  There is a momentum set in place for you to come forth and accomplish much unfinished business. This is a time to carefully review and look over your priorities, and make key adjustments. Update and Reboot your plans for this New Year. The movement upon this hour will be fast-paced and some things if not taken care of early in the year could hinder you further along the way. Come in to receive instructions of my wisdom that will help you to get things done quickly in a short amount of time. Do not allow major distractions to cause fear and anxiety. Be firm about your decisions especially when it comes to making sure that your convictions align with to the standard that I have set in your life. Let your yea’s be yea and your no’s be no. Be clear and deliberate without compromise. Deal with situations where you are straddling the fence because things that you don’t address now could later impact you at a more serious time.”

“This time of prayer and fasting will enable you to operate more in the moment. It will be a time when after the prayer has been prayed in the place of my presence, I will be with you. As you go out, you will have answers and I will walk with you and talk with you and guide with my own hand. Your time that you spend in my presence will yield much fruit and bring a greater depth in our fellowship together. Your steps will be ordered. You will carry a peace that when times of trouble and turmoil are present, you will hear clearly and know exactly how to react and what to do. Don’t allow anyone or anything to disturb your calm reserve now. It will be a much needed virtue to have this entire year.”

I am pouring upon my people the oil of my covenant that was established before time. You will begin to see it’s effect in the days to come. As I pour out the oil upon you, it will be evident that I will be with you to help you, direct you, and show you things as you cry out from your place in prayer. The oil symbolizes access into places that you have not previously entered into; along with the ability to come out of situations that you have not previously been able to come out from. It is the oil of favor and joy giving you the grace to come out of troubled areas into a place of breakthrough. Great change will begin to come forth. So many wondrous things will begin to happen. Know that I am moving upon this time for all to see so that a greater measure of My glory will come forward. Revival fires will burn.  You will feel the power of my love coming forth upon my people and joy will come in the midst of them.  A peace will be released that will bring a fire and a light upon my people. A peace that will flow like liquid fire. It is my portion given freely to you to believe again, to hope again, and to reach up and reach out to touch others’ lives in ways that have not been in this measure.”

“Listen clearly to my words and incline your ears to hear my sound as it vibrates throughout the land. It will carry a frequency of love, unity, and my heart for you. Don’t allow the sound waves of noisome pestilence, discord, and confusion to distract you now. There are clusters of sound waves that are penetrating the airways that will carry the sound within the atmosphere. There is an acceleration of change coming forth and is it blowing in the land for your good, says the Lord. So sing new songs before my presence and let the wind of my spirit take you into a higher place of peaceful abiding. It will be the place where you will go. It will be a sweet resting place in the light of my presence that will bring healing and new joy.”   

“This release will be the beginning of great things that I have prepared for my people. Cry out in the Holy place of prayer. Press in and don’t let up. Press in my people and don’t give in, because as the prayers are being released out of my house (between the porch and the altar) they will touch and cover areas that couldn’t be covered in any other way. These prayers will cover the course of the year and will set a watch in place throughout this hour. ”

Psalm 45: 7 (Aramaic Translation): You have loved righteousness, you have hated evil, because of this, oh God, your God has anointed with you the oil of a joy greater than that of your companions." 

”For now, the vision to watch and pray is coming forth in a greater measure. It will take on a sound, and a voice that will not be silenced, says the Lord. The power of prayer is being activated across the land and it shall increase. Much trouble would have come upon this land if it had not been for prayer. The warfare against this nation has increased so continue to press in and pray. Pray with power and without ceasing. Prayer is the key in this hour, and it has been passed down from generation to generation. It will never lose its strength. Let the prayer pour like the oil. Let it pour out in your homes, at the gates, in the secret place, in the glory, and in the worship.  As the prayers come forth so will my oil and the flow of miracles will come. Salvation will increase, deliverance will come forth, and many souls will come into the kingdom.”

Psalm 105:8 He has remembered His covenant forever the word that He has commanded to a thousand generations.

“Open up your spirit so that you may know what is about to unfold. Open up your heart so that you may receive my grace and my glory, and so that you may understand why this season is so important as you transition across troubled waters to solid ground. So rise up and take your place. I will lead you. I will surround you with a hedge of protection. As you follow me the favor that I will place upon you will guide you through. Know that I love you with a love that is everlasting. I desire that you walk in victory in ways never seen before. All that you have been searching for will be found right before my presence. This is a time to overcome and a time to conquer obstacles.  It is the hour to hear and not forebear. Know that you are being prepared to be a part of the greatest army in this hour. For the work of the Kingdom will come forth mightily. You have a part in this destiny, says the Lord. It will come to pass. It is my word and my promise to you in this season.”

We will beginning our Daniel Fast from January 5th to 26th, 2014 we will be following the same guidelines as Kingdom Connection for more info www.jentezenfranklin.org/fasting/

 Word of the Lord for 2014 -- By: Prophet Phyllis Ford
 January 1, 2014

(The following is a compilation of significant words, and visions during my time of seeking the Lord for his utterance and wisdom concerning 2014.)

There are times that the Lord will reveal to us the big picture and show us important puzzle pieces. These puzzle pieces remind us of important things as we walk out our destiny with Him. He will even speak words of encouragement and wisdom to us. This coming year will have its’ share of concerns. It will be a time that far exceeds our expectations. We will see a divine awakening within both the year 2014 and 2015. We will see blueprints, strategies, patterns, and even “types and shadows,” released fresh out of God’s word.  They will become clearer and more easily understood than ever before. Some will say, “Wow that happened just as it did in God’s word.”. We will see and understand through revelations and mysteries His word revealed to us in profound ways. So that we may come to fully understand who He (Christ) is in us. As we get closer to the fullness of times more mysteries will be revealed with great understanding.  

For example: We read and talk about the glory of God’s presence, but what we will see as it is revealed to us in 2014? We will see things in greater levels and realms than we have ever seen before. It will be like looking into a magnifying glass or into a telescope. Our hearts will be flooded with light and we will understand the hope of our calling. We will know the true richness of what we have inherited in Him. (Ephesians 1:18-21)( Luke 8:10)  

Ephesians 1:18 (Amplified Bible) By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones).

Colossians 1: 26-27 (Amplified Bible) The mystery of which was hidden for ages and generations [[b]from angels and men], but is now revealed to His holy people (the saints), To whom God was pleased to make known how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ within and among you, the Hope of [realizing the] glory.

Ephesians 1:9-10 He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth, In Him.

The Gardening of the Lord and the Harvest to come.

In a deep prayer before the Lord, He showed me a garden. It was beautiful and I knew this was symbolic to what was going on right now and in the time to come. He said, “The seeds that were planted in us during September 2013 (the High Holy days) have been germinating. The harvest will be reaped all throughout 2014 and 2015.”. The first harvest will come forth in January and February. Many will say, “It is not the time for this to come forth now.”, but the Lord will respond, “Say no more four months then comes the harvest but lift up your eyes and look out into the fields for they are white already to  harvest.”. (John 4:35) The harvest of Souls will come into kingdom throughout the year 2014. Revival winds will be blowing and revival fires will be burning. A new cleansing will come upon the people.

What was sown in tears will now be reaped in Joy. For the tears shed, test completed, trials endured and battles fought and won have taken root and will bear fruit. This will be a year of unusual times of harvest, unusual times of sowing and reaping, and even times when the reaper will overtake the sower. Much will be gathered in this time of harvest. We will see the manifestation of the promises of the Lord from souls to spiritual growth and from abundance in wells of resources to currents of means for God’s people.  A watering will take place. The plowing will take place throughout the year with bumper crops and then there will be times when we will just barely have enough to cover what is needed.

As we gather spiritually from the Lord we will be able to see where and how to gather where there is no fruit at all. Because the bearing (evidence) of the fruit will come forth through our knowing Him and what He represents in us and through us.

The Crops of dreams sowed into the good ground of the Lord will bear fruit and yield strong harvests. Those who are focused on helping the needs of others who are in famine spiritually and naturally so, will see great results. As the abundance comes in this hour, also comes the responsibility to give to those who are in great need. Cities of refuge and storehouses will be prepared in order to deal with trouble as it arises. We will see some catastrophic events that will occur during this year.

During Rosh Hashanah the seeds were planted and watered, but much of what was happening was not yet visible. This year we are in the beginning of seeing the sprigs come up from the ground. The process will be visible in the time it is needed the most. These are the spiritual seeds that were hidden in the ground of time, and are coming now with great strength. They were those who were being prepared and felt as if they were tried in the fiery furnace of affliction, and then sifted through a sieve (an instrument that only allows the finest of flour to come through). They were those who overcame the hardship of adversity. Being refined they will now rejoice in the coming of His glory. Many said, “I waited and waited but I didn’t see what I was waiting for and I cried within myself.”, but the Lord will say to His people, “These times of waiting, brought forth a rich spiritual harvest that was nurtured and matured through the process of fervent prayer and true fellowship with me.”.

That which is coming in this season is as a result of His mercy and His righteousness. He is watering us with words of grace and truth as we are being transformed and changed. He has covered us and is keeping us in ways we sometimes don’t realize. It has been His patience and long suffering that has preserved us. It is the integrity of His love of that is causing us to blossom.

It’s about the Kingdom, it’s about triumphing in the face of evil. It’s even about the strength of the Lord arising in the face of coming trouble. As I continued to pray the Lord showed me great shakings upon the earth, great tremors coming upon the land. I saw men who will rise up in anger from nations to incite war. I saw the same anger rising up in the Middle East, with assassinations plots and coups within that government. I wasn’t afraid, but I was disturbed and I heard the voice of the Lord with such a calmness and peace saying, “Do not be dismayed for in the very midst of this there will be an arising of my people who will align themselves with my word. They will awake out of slumber; they will rise up and declare my words as they walk in Holiness lifting up a standard in the land. They will not be afraid, nor will they will they fret but they will stay before my presence to hear my instructions concerning the move of my dominion upon land. My army will continue to grow and grow. It will not be hindered nor will it be destroyed. “.

For many will say, “I am the one who will heed the call of the Father. I will follow and obey his commands. I will not be afraid because I understand who He is in me.”. There will be a great boldness amongst the people and a great understanding was upon them as they united as one. They will cry out in this hour saying, “We are ready, willing, and prepared!”. These are the hearts of many that will pray towards the harvest. They will be overjoyed to see this unity in purpose coming forth. For in the glory you will see a tremendous outpouring. (As I prayed I saw the Glory raining like liquid fire falling upon the people.)

 Isaiah 58:11 "And the LORD will continually guide you, And satisfy your desire in scorched places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail. Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; You will raise up the age-old foundations; And you will be called the repairer of the breach, The restorer of the streets in which to dwell.”

The Lord is preparing a table

I saw a vision of the Lord’s table. It was like a wood table overlaid with fine gold. I heard the Lord say, “Remind the people I have prepared a table for them.”. Somehow I knew the table was symbolic of a place of provision for his people. It was also a place of learning as one who sits and hears from the Lord. It represented the table where the bread of the Lord is placed. The place where we can be trained and equipped for future seasons to come. This is the place where we can be elevated and anointed for His glory after completing the growth and maturation process. We must remain teachable and humble in this place. For the table also symbolizes the Lord’s altar. A place not for men’s feet in standing but, for men’s lives to be laid down as an offering acceptable for consumption by God. It is a tabernacle and a place of abiding.  Psalm 23 says that the Lord will prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies, that He will anoint our heads with oil, and that our cups will overflow. The oil of the Lord represents the essence of Him. It is the oil that carries purpose and knowledge of our destinies. 

The cup of the Lord represented our chosen walk to what we have been called. The Lord is saying to embrace what He has given us. Remember that while we are obedient to Him: His goodness and mercy will follow us, keeps us, cover us, and protects us. It is prepared and just like the Wedding Feast it is prepared and ready for all to come. It is not based on who we are but whose we are. I heard the scripture: Luke 14: 15 “Blessed is the man who eat at the feast of the Kingdom.”. There will be great opportunities to receive from the Lord what He has freely given us.    

Rising Above Adversity

Attitude has everything to do with altitude. So if we allow our hearts to be darkened with ungratefulness carrying bouts of anger without resolve we will find it difficult to come out of those deep places of emptiness and isolation. When we rise above the adversity and make choices to rise up in prayer, in the word and with thanksgiving and praise we honor Our Lord with Hope; reaching out to receive His heart with humility and love. In this we will become more like Him. A transformation will be taking place, and we should yield to it. Our positioning is everything and has everything to do with knowing his ways. The reality is if we want a better sense of well-being in Him Spiritually we have to do better. Yes, the presence of God can touch our hearts and change us, but the question that we must answer is, “Are we ready to receive from the Lord?”, or “Are we closed off and alienated?”. There can be a room full of people, some may be ready to receive all that they can from the Lord and the others may be skeptical and unwilling. (What may seem like a door to many can be a wall to others.)  It’s well beyond time to embrace the things of God as they are freely given to us. We must rise up in faith and see that yielding ourselves to Him is also being willing to receive from Him. We must embrace the process. This is the reason faith begins with us trusting in Him.

You see, things are not based on what men see, nor what men consider to have value. The thing that is the most vital to us is how The Lord sees us. We are living in a time where as get closer to the end of days we will see intensifying levels of negativism. It will be evident that confusion and great discontentment is stirring in the worldly atmosphere. But at the same time we are about to see, and know the most powerful intensifying levels of glory that we have ever experienced in our lives. We will witness times when it will appear to be heaven upon Earth, the Heavens will be opened and the promises of God will be real and tangible in the face of some serious events. How we perceive and understand the Lord concerning what we are to do in the face of these end-times will directly affect how empowered the people of God will be.

 

Word of the Lord for January 2014

“Your ability to move forward is a necessity now. Be ready to face major challenges by moving forward and not allowing yourself to be stifled.  There is a momentum set in place for you to come forth and accomplish much unfinished business. This is a time to carefully review and look over your priorities, and make key adjustments. Update and Reboot your plans for this New Year.

Be clear and deliberate without compromise. Deal with situations where you are straddling the fence because things that you don’t address now could later impact you at a more serious time.”

This time of prayer and fasting will enable you to operate more in the moment. It will be a time when after the prayer has been prayed the place of my presence will be with you. In the time spent before my presence you will come out of the prayer place with many answers. I will walk with you, talk to you, and guide you with my own hand. Your steps will be ordered. You will carry a peace that when times of trouble and turmoil are present. You will hear clearly and know exactly how to react and what to do. Don’t allow anyone or anything disturb your calm reserve no. It will be a much needed virtue to have this entire year.

 Word of the Lord for December 2013 -- By: Prophet Phyllis Ford

 December 1, 2013

“Prepping for 2014" & "Obeying the Instructions of the Lord” 

I had a prophetic dream, with it the Lord released with it some vital instructions and insights. In this dream I was gathering some food for some people and although it appeared to be a small amount I knew it was going to have an impact on multitudes (I knew I was not alone in this assignment and that others were given various other assignments, but each would have a great effect on many.)


As I prepared to get to the others what I had gathered, I saw two paths—I could go down a long hallway and be seen or I could go through a series of doors that would keep me from being seen. But it would be risky because I didn’t know what was behind the doors. After prayerfully deciding, I began to go through the series of doors. As I walked through the doors many rooms were empty. (No furniture, no people, nothing contained in those rooms, just plain white rooms.)


I walked into a door and although I wasn’t fully aware of the technology that was before me, I knew that it involved some high level spiritual espionage. It seem to symbolize very serious trouble that we were about to face on several levels in the near future. There were two rooms and there were wires attached to circuit boards that they were attached to large units with a control table that seem to be some kind of communication and hacking device. It could have been symbolic but whatever those first two rooms represented I knew it was destructive and evil in its intent. In the third room there was a man, he was turned for the moment from me. He was focused upon something like time was of the essence. 


The question that entered my mind as a peeked through room two looking into room three was how could I get through this room unnoticed and get to the next door. But there was no other door. But as I asked that question an audible voice said to me, “Go through the narrow place.” I knew that the ability to get from one place to the other was through a narrow place. When I hear those words---the Lord’s strength touched me and I knew I could I get to the place where the people were, safely.


Then I heard him: it was the man in the third room and he was turned towards me and the answer was coming from the man working in the 3rd room. He said to me, “Do you see that narrow place?” Then my eyes focused, as I gazed upon the corner of the room, it was a narrow passage, it seem to confirm to me that the ability to get to safety was accessible but I knew it had to do with the ability that the Lord had already provided. As I turned sideways, I pushed myself through the passage carrying in my hand the small bag of food. It was like I was swept through by the wind for it carried me through quickly.


I sought the Lord concerning an interpretation and He revealed to me that the dream was significant to the time we are in now. He shared with me further instructions and said that it would answer many questions as we go through this month of December. It carries within it paths, the hallway and the series of doors.”


These are His words:


“I will instruct my people on how to prepare for victory by overcoming obstacles that will stand before them now. This is the time to deal with personal failures and mistakes. This is a time to forgive yourself and forgive others. Do not let the shame, nor the sin allow you to continue the same cycles, for they have become obstacles and hindrances in your moving forward. Know that I placed keys, ways and even access to ways to push you forward into the place that I am causing you to rise up from now. You have been prepared for a testament and testimony. This is the time to resolve issues. Allow me to remove all the filthiness of flesh to give way to My Spirit that I placed within you to become, the new you in this hour.”


“You have what you need to complete the assignments ahead. Remember the place where you have experienced hardships, times of famine, lack, and even times of weariness—I WAS WITH YOU--and in that place I prepared you, carried you, and gave you the power to overcome even that which is coming. Do not be afraid. In that place, you found me and the fellowship of my sufferings. Now I am reviving you. You are beginning to breathe again with the purpose and life that I placed in you to help others.”   


“Remember, I am your Everlasting God, your place of rest and your way of reconciliation. Restoration belongs to you. You will come forth of out of a narrow place. A place where we abide yet still---that place will always be in your heart, in your mind. And in your time of great struggle you will be able to draw from what you need to rise up above the trouble. So never despise the day of small things, because it is in those small things, I can do wonders and I can feed multitudes.”     


These were the seven things that the Lord spoke concerning this month as instructions going into 2014: (It is not my assignment to teach this so I will only share the instructions and there is plenty of revelation to draw from.).


1.)    Watch what we are consuming. The definition of consuming is: (a feeling), completely filling one’s mind and attention; absorbing, to take in as food. What is filling our minds and attention? No matter how we see this, it speaks volumes. Matthew 16:6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. The physical intake of harmful foods that go into our systems can affect our lives but the flesh can have an even more serious consequence. This warning goes back to dealing with the spirit of uncleanness. What we are drawn to? We need to see ourselves not through our own eyes or the eyes of the world but through the lens of God’s word. The Father has prepared proper nourishment for his people. What we allow into our spirit is very important now. This is a serious time for examination.


2.)    Watch what you feed others.  What we allow into our spirit is what we expose to others. When there are unresolved issues they must be submitted to Him for change and deliverance. They must accompany our cries for repentance. If not, then as people of God these problems can carry over into our relationships with others and can hinder those whom we care for most.


3.)    Walking in #1 and #2 will help you follow the instructions that you will need to accomplish your given assignments. We must follow the proverb that instructs us: Proverbs 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. If we are not disciplined in our lives, what we partake in and consume along with who we join ourselves to can have a serious affect our ability to hear clearly and follow the Lord’s instruction when those instructions are given. The Lord said, “If My word is not adhered to now, How will it be heard in times of trouble?” e Following the voice of the Lord has everything with being able to maneuver around trouble as it presents itself.


4.)    In this hour, as we follow our assignments we will discover some things that we were not aware of.  It will uncover the enemy’s plots and plans. So we must watch, as well as pray. Walk in discretion and abide in the secret place with Him, is the order of the day. Then we will be ready to overcome situations and move forward in his timing. We must wait to hear his voice. When we stay before Him we will move in a confidence that won’t come from our ability but directly from the anointing of the Lord. Zechariah 4:6 Then he answered and spoke unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, says the LORD of hosts.


5.)    Don’t despise the narrow place (the narrow way)—it is a way of escape. We cannot look at times of struggle, lack or even times of weariness as a place of despair. Affliction and hardship should not be looked upon as a place where we felt abandoned by the Lord. It was a place of abiding with Him. Where we fellowshipped with Him in prayer, gratitude, praising him and loving Him and waiting upon Him no matter what we were enduring. It was a time when we were aligned with Him, not seeking His Hand but watching and standing before His face. Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. The path will be before us as we progress through the series of doors. No matter what is presented before us the path of Christ will keep us.  It is the path that will provide safety, the narrow way is life. He is our way of escape.


6.)    We should hear His directions/insights and follow them. When He speaks to us, we must make the necessary adjustments. We can’t ask Him why were not successful when we hear Him but we didn’t make changes that we were supposed to make.


7.)    When accomplishing your assignments you must overcome past personal struggles—the enemy will try to set us up, in an effort to trip us up. The narrow place humbles us, purges us, and removes the lumps from us, the leaven. (Galatians 5:9, 1 Corinthians 5:7). We must confront these issues. We can’t wish them away, deny they exist and acting like the victim only strengthens those strongholds. We must surrender to the Lord all that we are dealing with.


      This is a time of completion of some things and a beginning of other things. We must embrace the new that is coming. This a time of coming out of transition into the place where the miraculous will take up where we leave off—it is the place of our faith and the fulfilling of significance things that will be accomplished within His own timing. Remember the food (God’s provision/nourishment reached the people.) There are people waiting on the other side of our completed assignments.


See you on the other side of this month of December—in 2014.

 Word of the Lord for November through December 21st 2013 -- By: Prophet Phyllis Ford

October 30, 2013

The interpretation of the visitation for the Fall Season 2013 (taken originally from the Word of the Lord for 2013 part 2)  www.carpenterstouch.org  

   In December 2012, the Lord gave me an awesome visitation concerning four people that I and a group of my peers were in, we were told to prophesy to these four individuals and that later we would be informed who they were. Surprisingly enough, we found they were not individuals but they were  seasons that would be coming forth this year that would occur in 2013. The fall season was described this way, in the visitation.

“Fall--The last one was a man with black curly hair. He had large eyes that turned down at the end and they seem sad. He wore servants/waiter’s clothes with a white shirt and a white towel on his right arm. He was in a beautifully expensive restaurant with golden colored table coverings. He had a tray carrying a wine glass with a clear liquid, a rose and gold plate. When I approached him a woman put a microphone in my face. I begin to talk to him about Israel. The Lord spoke to him about his heart of great humility, his love for Israel, and that his prayers had come up before the Lord. I said to him, “The Lord said I see you, and how you love Israel. These things that you have been done in times past concerning your prayers, and alms are forever before me.” “You have served me with diligence and carried a love for me and for her (Israel). I want you to know I have never forgotten nor do I forget, because the day is coming for your restoration and for her restoration. By this time we are all weeping. For no matter what happens I will a have a time for her, set by my own hand, as I have in your life. He began to sway/stagger and the lady and I held him up. He wept almost uncontrollably. I heard music in the background after the word was released, perhaps it had been going on before that time and I hadn’t realized.( Isaiah 41:8-9).”

The Lord recently spoke to me and said go back to that visitation I wanted to show you something concerning the season that you have entered into, Fall.  As I reviewed the words for fall--it begin to speak volumes. In this season the Lord is not only calling his people but He is gathering them. The significance of this gathering* (a proposed event for a specific time) has to do with the purposes for this meeting and the hour that we have entered into. So much is serious and so much is at stake. There will be several things conveyed and other things must be ingested in order for it to take hold of one’s life because there will be rapid changes from here to the end of the year. It will be important to not only know the Lord’s instructions but to understand that they are food for life that will enable us to fully walk in the realms of His glorious anointing that the Lord is looking for us to partake in this time. We will be joined and gathered with Him. The words of God, the power of those words, and the fellowship of the hour is prepared and purposed as the same mission for those with one mind and one heart.

The Lord had me reflect on Luke 14th and the Book of Esther in order to understand a few key things. Many times leading up to a significant occurrence the Lord will point out key scriptures carrying  important protocol and principles that will show us things that we will need to consider in order to fully understand what and why He is saying it during a particular time.  


Luke 14 banquet—Right before the parable of the great supper is mentioned we see words which could relate to the coming subject.  Things to consider prior to the gathering:

1. Verses 7-11 shared about the procedure of how to choose the chief rooms and seating. (My purpose is not to teach the principle only to point them out so that we may search our own hearts accordingly.)  That it is better not to presumptuously sit in a seat in the higher room where we might be told we are sitting in someone more honorable man’s seat, but to take a seat in the lowest room.  Sitting is usually determined by the host of the event to take a better seat. (We can not to assume who we are in the face of God in light of all who are attending, to do so, could cause us to err.)  The wisdom to learn was: Whosoever exalted himself shall be abased and he that humbled himself shall be exalted. This is a time of self-evaluation and a time of assessment. The Lord’s evaluation could result in elevation or demotion. This is a time to humble ourselves and be teachable that we may obtain even greater revelation. Humility not reflecting on who we think is significant but to be quick to hear what the Master thinks concerning our lives. It is also a time of elevation to those who have shown themselves faithful.

2. Verses 12-15 shared about when making a dinner don't invite your friends, brethren, neither kinsmen, or even rich neighbors but call the poor, the maimed, the lame and the blind. Meaning don’t let the invitation be directed to those we feel worthy of inviting but towards those who need it the most and would appreciate the most, thus having the heart of the Lord. These are patterns of the Lord for this type of gathering because it will be an open invitation without bias. For the greatest blessing of all is to eat bread in the kingdom of our Lord.  This reveals to us many of those around us have had very rich opportunities to eat the best that was prepared at the Master’s table and yet not appreciate it for what it was. So when they saw the invitation it was just another invite, not realizing it was a life changing experience for all eternity. “When it was heard by one attending, they said,“ “Blessed is He that shall eat bread in the kingdom.” (someone felt privileged to be included, despite the tests and hardships).

Now the actual parable: The invitation was set.

3. He sent his servant (at suppertime) to tell them--Come for all things are now ready!! (urgency of the hour is at hand) But they came with excuses. A.) I bought a piece of ground and must go see it—I can't come. B.) I bought have bought 5 yoke of oxen and I must prove them—I can’t come  C). I have married a wife and I cannot come. Who buys land that they have never seen? Who buys yoke of oxen not knowing what condition they were in? Who gets married and refuses to show their new spouse around to such a generous host?  (The answer was, they were all with one consent.)

Possible answers for the excuses:

·         I didn’t respond to the invitation from God on my life right now because of the personal decisions that are now crowding my life and I need to attend to them.

·         That which is connected to me has hindered/kept me from understanding the importance of the invitation.

·         I’m tired, so many things where supposed to happen by now and I am battle weary and I’m not coming. (read between the lines).

·         I really don’t see the importance of attending this thing, can’t come.

Will we be so distracted, disgusted, disappointed, arrogant, too important, that we miss the most important invitation to arrive in the most important season of our lives. According to that event, the invitation they missed out on was the most significant of all. Pray that we do not miss our day of visitation. The Master of the House was angry--(Hebrew for word angry was oikodespotes which meant he had been insulted by those who gave excuses. Even in Esther’s pattern we see that Vashti’s refusal to attend brought on serious consequences. There are events that are about to take place that will usher the largest call into the kingdom than we have ever seen. We must make sure we don’t allow our personal distractions to keep us from hearing the sound in the distance. So we need to see the seriousness of the call, as well heeding the invitation from the Host of Heaven. We come when we are called ready, well-suited and prepared.

So in this fall season the place for the gathering was set in order. The order is being set in the kingdom know that as the Father prepares his word to be expressed in that meeting—order also is being required in the house of the Lord. The order of the kingdom will set order in the House. Kingdom participants will see the meeting as a place of beauty, royalty and dignity. We can refuse to partake in that process of order, and we will miss out on those things which are being prepared personally for us in this time.

This season may appear to begin carrying a sad countenance of uncertainty but it holds many precious promises as the Father speaks words of healing and restoration. This hour is given to the servant carrying the servant’s heart. His raiment reflects his heart knowing he is a friend of God and not just a servant. He wore what Jesus wore on a similar occasion being girded with waiter clothes. His approach to those that he attended to was with humility, love and the willingness to care for them that he was waiting on. His garment carried the integrity of his master not carrying false humility but sincerity of heart. We will know about the soul of a man by looking into the heart of a man. His tray carried 3 items, a wine glass filled with the new wine of His presence crystal clear without color. A gold plate that was yet to filled with that which the Father would give to his people to partake, a royal platter suitable for kings. And lastly a rose that first represented love, but also a symbol of beauty that when the wilderness or desert blooms such a one we all will rejoice in its appearance, the glory of the Lord, the majesty of Our God. (Isaiah 35:1-3) It speaks to us, as that which cannot be explained, the miraculous will come forth out of the essence of His presence. We will watch the glorious impossible occur in the stark reality of troubled times with much fear in its’ grasp. Those who attend will drink from the glasses and be filled. That which has been tried in the fire will be served upon pure gold. Now let’s look at what the Lord speaks to this season:

(Please refer to the word at the beginning of this note.)

 The prophetic word is being magnified (the microphone) so it can be heard, it carried a sound and power. It is important to remember that the Lord was speaking to the season not just a person. I am coming into a new understanding how to approach the season that the Father is speaking to, no matter what I think I lack or have.

Watch Israel in this season, it is the first thing that the Father speaks of. He then begin to speak to the heart of the season, and how will be carried with much humility and how the prayers of this hour are highly significant. The Lord continues to say: I see you Fall 2013, and that you love Israel—now He speaks of prayers, alms are ever before me (like a sweet fragrance).  Fall you have served me with diligence—what does a season that serves God look like? How does it bless those who treat the Lord with diligence and love?

What a time of honor and elevation unto His people. He says then this heartfelt promise “I have never forgotten the day for your restoration (ours) and Israel’s (restoration). This will be in time where we will experience the Love of the Father in a deeper realm understanding the hardships, the waiting, the endurance of the hour, and the delay. It worked for us an exceedingly eternal weight of glory not previously understood. (2 Corinthians 4:17)  There was weeping—Fall was weeping at the hearing of the Lord’s words. I sense a certain sadness, yet relief, yet tears of joy. The words, “no matter what” meant to me that even in the most extreme circumstances our God would show up in such a powerful unprecedented fashion we would not be denied. When the Lord God Almighty sets a thing by His Own Hand it is so!!!

Fall began to sway/stagger and the Lady and I held up the season. I believe this is a caution to us not to waver between what the Lord is saying to us and what we see going on around us, even that which is projected to us by news. (I feel the lady represented the media.) We must be sure concerning the words of the Lord for they bring forth the life and the realm of possibilities that are breathed by God when he speaks them. (Isaiah 55:10-11)  In weeping I feel that we will experience relief of the pressures that have surrounded us. There will be tears of gratitude for the moving of the Lord upon us his people. Even a sense of unworthiness for the deep love and grace of God has had upon our lives that He would do all that will unveil in this hour. Don’t sway between what God promises us and what we may be going through because it is only the crossway from the path that we walk upon to day and which we are about to experience in His fullest. The worse thing to do is to miss our day of visitation with unbelief and ingratitude. Let’s enter into the place of His gathering that we may receive what He has prepared for us.

No more will we walk into a season and say what we don’t have—the Father has prophesied life into our season that we may enter in and receive great possibilities. We can no longer let our past dictate or determine for us how will we be ----the Lord has breathed New life into the hour that we are in. So therefore we must move forth, breath in, embrace and walk in what He has created for us. 

Watch and pray over this hour, over Israel, over our nations, over a people declared for Holiness by the righteousness of the Lord. This is a season that the Father is dealing with the issues of the heart, reconciliation and transformation. A people restored is a people prepared and empowered by the divine nature of the Living God.  The prayers prayed in this hour will be directed, heard and answered. So cry out in this hour. Fall I am looking at you and all that I have placed in you to fulfill and bring forward. It will harvest forth his word even in the midst of trouble and great supplication.  To watchman and gatekeepers of the Lord hold your ground for even in the midst of you the Lord shall do great things and a great shaking will cause the enemy to be uncovered and many evil plans will be uprooted. Great change is coming in the midst of a great sweep. Be ready to war at the gate for the new life to enter in now. I heard the words in prayer.  “Fire Evangelism.”

There is a pouring out process going on – the pouring out is the bitterness of the soul and now the new wine of His presence is being poured in---more, more, more to overflowing. We will be hearing new songs coming out of the heavens, the worshippers will arise to a new sound coming out of the distance.

Galatians 5:13

 Word of the Lord for October 2013 by Prophet Phyllis Ford

 October 1, 2013

In this word I will share with you what the Lord has revealed to me, and how I came to understand his heart concerning various issues. Issues that we may be facing during these coming months as well as onto the end of this year. When we look upon this government, the spiritual climate of our nation, and the warnings from the true prophetic vessels many questions that come to mind. It is clear that major things are going on at the same time. If we miss what the Lord is saying to us it could jeopardize the stance we need to have in order to overcome coming crisis. Failing to understand certain truths could hinder our growth in the face of serious circumstances. The Lord begun to tell me that we must allow our faith in His promises to kick in with strong survival instincts when needed most. 

Throughout God’s word we see the enemy’s plans uprooted, we see people delivered by own God’s hand, and we witness a rising up of those who were empowered with His strength and determination. (This is a result of His divine nature and His power to overcome the works of the enemy.) We also see His army arise with great exploits. A remnant graced with faith to overcome and demonstrate to others how to go into new levels in Him. We are living in such a season. It is important to see the truth according to God’s word and understand how certain issues will play out in times to come.

About two weeks ago the Lord spoke to me and warned that He was about to shake the government and nation at it's very core. He said to brace myself and to prepare for it. I asked him several questions, some of which were not answered, but I knew in my spirit that the Word of God bears witness to times like these. Times where God dealt with a government and nation while at the same time He blessed and protected a certain people. We have been challenged to pray! Prayer prepares us for things that are coming and reveals to us prophetic revelations concerning what's going on and the motives behind them. The shifting occurs in that which we are able to change through the dynamic of prayer. (Daniel 2:19-22) The more I sought the Lord the more He began to show me that there is a key mindset essential for overcoming in this hour. No matter how many preparations we make we must walk in certain realities to overcome and stand firm in our faith. 

He begin to speak about the level of fear and confusion that's present now, and how it sets an atmosphere for making serious mistakes. Mistakes that set up loyalties in areas we do not need at this time. The Lord said, "When the truth of righteousness is being spoken to us it is our responsibility to hear and to obey. We must make sure that we have not established our own understanding of righteousness. Thereby walking in areas of iniquity that we don’t realize are wrong and as a result seeing the My judgment as being unfair.". The Lord added, "That the arrogance of a people who have reasoned their own righteousness in the face of the truth will cry out in this day.". We must pray that the truth according of God’s word will rule in their hearts over their own worldly beliefs. (Ezekiel 33)

He said if we would see things through his eyes and if we knew where He is taking us. We would walk in a stability and a strengthened understanding of our purpose. Knowing exactly where He is calling us to be.

1).  Our thinking must not be just about what we are going through. Nor should it reflect where we want to be, but now is the time where we must mature and operate in the place that He, the Father is calling us to be.

2).  The Lord is taking and restoring us. He is shifting us to walk in a greater place of strength, humility and awareness. It is the winning strategy and a foundation that He established in His word. We must change and adjust our minds so that our thinking brings right into the fulfillment of our destinies. We must walk into standing in the strength of his promises no matter what we see while not allowing them to change our thinking. No matter we see we will win, we will conquer, and we will overcome. If we begin to live, breathe, and walk in the manifestation of those words. We will see exploits, we will do exploits, and we will be what we has called us to be. The reality is that we were made for this and the very things that we have been fighting for we have been called to. We were assigned to these things and we are coming into the time when we shall possess them. It is a part of walking out our prophetic destiny. We carry within us the spiritual DNA to overcome. There is no more time to waver in what we believe. He has prepared for us these things and as we see it, it is fully manifested before us. These are heart issues that can affect our level of faith. (Deut 8:2)

These are His very words.     

“I am releasing upon my people required assignments. Some of which you may be fully aware of and others you are just beginning to realize now. They're being given to you according to your calling and function in this hour. In many ways, your areas of responsibility are expanding and it is important for them to be carried out. It is vital to set your priorities in place and set your house in order. How your life progresses from this time has everything to do with this discipline.  Align your life according to me and my word and walk in my spirit and the grace that I have freely given to you. Every step which you make is very vital, so walk circumspectly. Check your motives, but help others where they can be helped and are open to being helped. Because your time is valuable and it doesn’t need to be wasted on unnecessary actions. Reality is setting into many now. Everyone will be assessed by what is in their heart and not what has been spoken out of their mouths. So speak honestly, act deliberately and walk purposefully.”

“Know that I have placed a new spirit and a new heart in you that you may walk according to my precepts. To those who have heard my call and have determined to turn their lives toward me, "Don’t look through the eyes of your own ability but see with the eyes of your faith that I am building up in you.". As you prevail in prayer you will persevere and protect yourselves from obstacles that will try to hinder you. Know that much will be accomplished in you even in times of great trouble and confusion upon the land.”

“You will see even signs in the heavens, changes in the sun, the moon, and the stars coming upon the land and great shakings, but do not fear. Prepare your hearts to live your lives according to my covenant for these are all precursors of the things that are to come. Humble yourselves before me, you are arriving at a key time for a key purpose. Don’t worry because I will be working through you, for I will be strengthening you, sharpening you, making you and molding you. I am providing you with the ability to succeed now. This is the place of my grace. The release of my wisdom that is grooming you is getting you ready now. So be quick to hear and walk in obedience, because the enemy has been preparing during this time as well. This is a time of visitation. I am releasing and rendering according to the works of men's hands. So if those hands have purposed evil then in this time the weapon they have formed shall fall upon them. Those whose hands have sown good even for the sake of others lives will reap a harvest of rewards to come.”

“I am dealing with that which has stood in their place and declared that they were "God". In this time, in this hour, I am coming for those words. This is a serious word to false teachers, false prophets, and those who are deceived and are deceiving others. Know that there is now a shifting at the gates of the city. Great change is about to occur. So continue to stand at your watch. Watch and warn because this is a time of reckoning. The assessment of leadership is going on right now in the house of the Lord, and the  shaking has already has begun in the camp of the enemy. Men will be accountable for their actions. Know and understand that the key to your strength is in your relationship with me. To the extent that you “know” me is to the "measure" you will do great exploits.”

“The position of faith in the promises that I have spoken to you should match your belief in what I have ordained in your life to fulfill. So stand as a member of the army before me your Commander and Chief. For you are the army that I have declared. So stand up as a soldier so that you may conquer, because you can not command that which you refuse to prepare or assemble yourself for. You are engaged in the this battle because I have declared war, says the Lord. Against sin, against the shedding of innocent blood, and against those who stand for unrighteousness while boldly declaring they will prevail. Be ready to stand and declare the truth of my word without compromise. I will prepare you and you will stand and declare, "It is so!". For you will be battle ready, and even able to succeed.”

 “As the time is being declared that which is to come, will come. I am setting in order and in place my provision, my promises, even my very power which I placed upon you this day. I will lay up the wealth of the wicked and release it upon my righteous says the Lord. And the trump will sound the timing, that which is to come, will come, says the Lord.”

 

Daniel 2:19-22 “During the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven and said: “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.”

Deut. 8:2 “And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.”

Ezekiel 36:26 “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, . . .And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.”

"2 Corinthians 11:13 “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."

Romans 8:14 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”

Two visions two days ago:

1)   I saw a transferring of very long and large metal tubes of some kind, into a compartment some were in a capsule form and others long rods as well as large round pipes that appeared to be placed in this compartment as well. I literally woke up and then went back to sleep only to see these transporting of objects I didn’t see people. This seem to go on for a time, I woke up again and went back to see these long objects being packed into the compartments.

2)   I saw a Jewish family and they were placing some holy vessels into a large ornate box. I saw a large tallit, large Menorah, small book of prayers, a silver cup, a brown wooden block, a shofar—I heard the Lord say the words: preservation of a nation.

I will share prophetically about the dream/vision the Lord revealed to me concerning The Word of the Lord for the Year 2013 Part 2  Fall: having to do with the season, now.

 Word of the Lord for September 2013 by Prophet Phyllis Ford

 September 4, 2013

I was somewhat concerned that the Lord had not released the word for September. As the first of the month passed the Lord began to let me know that the emphasis was not on the first of the month but that which was to come. He showed the Jewish calendar. What I was looking at was “a measured time with a spiritual emphasis.” He was letting me know to get the first off of my mind and to focus on what He was showing me. He was saying that the emphasis was on the seriousness of the hour and how the ten days from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur must be covered with heavy prayer. It is about Israel, America, the Nations, and what must be done. Understand that it is also about a marking of time and the purpose of this time.

The following are His words:

“I am dealing with the spirit of uncleanness that is upon this land at various levels. It has affected the hearts of the people and how a person measures, sees, and discerns a thing. Much has been poisoned the views of the people , the ways of people, and their choices. More importantly it has affected their levels of trust in me. The enemy has sown seeds of mistrust so that the faith of my people would fail, his strategy hasn’t changed.”

“You must guard against everything at this level. Your ability to trust, to uphold your faith and to believe that which I shall do in this hour, is very key. They are your greatest strengths and they are also your greatest weapons. As many seek to find deeper revelation on overcoming the enemy’s weapons, know that much can be measured with a seed of faith. It has the ability to move mountains, to reverse whatever obstacle is opposing you, and to withstand the greatest attack that may try to deter or hinder you.”

Matthew 17:20 “He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

Hebrews 10:38 “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.”

“This nation is on a course of serious events. Trust and faith in me will be a major factor. Many things are about to occur between this September and October that will try the hearts of men. My people must prevail in prayer during these next ten days from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur. There are many things hanging in the balance and this nation in many aspects has lost its way. (This is now occurring in many regions but America has reached its tipping point.) This is not a political battle but a spiritual battle. I have told you before that by the end of this year Nations will align themselves as sheep nations and goat nations---this alignment is forming right now.”

“Allegiances are being made. The foundation of the factors that has to do with those who will follow me and those who will oppose me are being settled. Their fates will be determined by whom they will serve. So as I passed through the first of September be I was pointing to a time. (A time from the Head of the year to the High Holy day of Atonement.) I am saying to my people: You shall no longer halt between two opinions you must choose who will you serve, for the fate of nations will be determined by those choices.”

Matthew 25:32-34 “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: (v 35-46).”

“You may say, “What shall happen to me if my nation has turned towards Satan but I am for God?”. I say to you cry out, where your voice may be heard. Cry out to others, I will hear you and cover you, I will be your deliverer, and I am your God. My covenant will remain forever. I have settled these things in the heavens and will establish them upon the earth. I shall not change. So cry out for your nation, cry out for the salvation of others. Cry out for my army of warriors to rise. The fate of the nations once they have been determined, will be sealed. The day is short and much is at hand, the night is approaching. Who will be willing to work? Rise up, and fulfill your calling! Make your calling and election sure. Many men will seek answers but refuse to acknowledge the real truth. Know that old faulty systems and the lies of the enemy will give way and not stand in the face of my truth.”

Psalm 119:89 “Forever, O LORD, your word is settled in heaven.Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands.…”

2 Peter 1:10-11 “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

“So prepare your heart and your mind to run the course that has been set before you. Make the necessary adjustments along the way. For I am uncovering everything. I am even revealing your own heart. I am removing that which is not of me and I am pouring into you even more of my life so that you may live and overcome, says the Lord. I will give you favor and position you so that you may be effective in your assignments. The timing before you is key, make the best of what is given you and do not weary yourself with the evil that surround present circumstances because I will cause what you see as opposition, to work for you. There is a battle even confusion going on in the camp of the enemy.”

“Watch, keep your spiritual eyes open to see and know the way I have prepared for you. I will lead you and guide you through to victory, but you must not allow the distractions of the day to keep you from day to day instructions. I will judge the rebellion of the ways of the wicked. I will release to you everything you need now. Do not judge anything before the time but watch, look, and listen. I will speak to you in the night season even in the darkest hours and you will know the course to take from one place of safety to another, says the Lord. I will release my angels to assist you, even allies in the midst of your enemies to help you. These are my promises to you. Remember I am your redeemer, the one who is working things out for your good.”


“Begin to carry a wisdom concerning what you say because your words have power. Remember to use them for you and not against you. Say what I say.  Know that what the King commands will always be backed by the Kingdom of Heaven. You will overcome the kingdoms of this world through your faith and trust in me. Utilize and walk in the strategy of my kingdom as I direct and strengthen you. Continue to withstand every lie and opposition of the enemy. You have already obtained the anointing to walk in what I have given unto you. You have what you need and it is far more than you think you have.”

“Speak, direct, move any opposition that stands before you. Quit ye like men, for the army is increasing, growing, accelerating and it is becoming more powerful. As the forces of darkness begin to loom, greater so shall my army be for my glory shall cover you, as you move forth.”
“Beloved, behold you shall have victory even in this coming storm, as you are faithful unto me, says the Lord.”

1 Corinthians 16:13 “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. Let all your things be done with charity.”

1 Samuel 12:23-25 "Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by ceasing to pray for you; but I will instruct you in the good and right way. Only fear the LORD and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. But if you still do wickedly, both you and your king will be swept away."

I had two very vivid visions and a very significant dream:

1.)    I was with my daughters getting the last things needed in anticipation for preparation of something that was about to occur. It was turning into sunset but it was still light outside but as darkness was coming in—I heard a loud crackling sound then a sound of a surge of some type—I saw bolts of electricity at the same time—then all of a sudden the power completely went out. No light. No nothing. We appeared to be a couple blocks away from our destination so we quietly pulled over. People were panicked a guy said to us that the street which he just came from power was out everywhere no lights were seen for miles away. There was confusion.

2.)    I dreamed I was on the phone talking to a prophet telling him about the above vision as I was talking to him (I saw in the spirit, a fairly large hand held device that had a red rim around it—it has a grid on the face of it) I begin to share what I saw over the phone and I heard a loud sound—I was being told by someone in the house that something just happened (I don’t know if it was being reported (on the TV) or it had just happened outside but I assumed it was outside.) I woke up some- what startled. Both 1 & 2 happened 2 days ago.

Isaiah 60:1-2 "Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. 2"For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you.…



3.)    I saw a vision of a large group of people who were in formation. It was like I was observing the phases of actions that were prophetically coming to pass.

a.) Others begin to join those who were already standing in the group. 

b.) Then all of a sudden others joined but the formation changed, I could see between them, because some that were in the front were no longer in the front but others replaced their positions by coming to the front and others fell in place. It was like a shifting formation. But no one left.

c.) After the movement there was a pause then a sound and the entire group closed ranks and I could no longer see between them for they had closed ranks. I knew that meant they were ready. The group went from many to a number that could not be numbered.

Joel 2:7 “They run like mighty men, They climb the wall like soldiers; And they each march in line, Nor do they deviate from their paths.”

                         (I knew it was the army of the Lord)

Prophetic prayer request: Calling all gatekeepers, intercessors, watchmen, leaders and precious members of the body of Christ.

1.      Cry out for our nation, let your voice be heard, ask others to cry out, pray for the salvation of people and our land that is hanging in the balance.

2.      Pray for Israel, pray for the peace of Jerusalem and against war, retaliation, backlash that it would not come against God’s people. 

3.      Pray for the release of God’s provision to come upon his people in natural and supernatural ways from every direction and place.

4.      Pray that God’s judgment will expose, uncover and will sweep the church and the land. Pray for a cleansing at all cost. (Jezebel and her lies must be uprooted.)

5.      Pray for Christians and their churches who are being persecuted by evil ruler-ship in various nations. Pray for their protection in all regions across the globe everywhere.

6.      Pray that the spirit of civil war in Syria will not carry over to a civil war here in the USA. Cover all decisions being made now behind closed doors (hidden and known).

7.      Pray that no toxic chemicals and toxic waters will come into our water systems.

8.      Pray that all the evil plans within the banking systems will be uncovered and exposed.

9.      Continue to pray around the spiritual gates of our nations (the spiritual place where major decisions will be made) and to call down confusion upon the camp of the enemy.

10.  Pray against the spirit of uncleanness and that the eyes of the body of Christ will be opened. Pray clarity and discernment will be strong and the truth in us will not be compromised under any circumstances.

11.  Pray that the army of God will arise and do great exploits.

12.  Continue to pray protection over women and children. Cover in prayer those who are being potentially being trafficked, killed, aborted and abused throughout our nations.  

  Let pray during significant watches, prepare around the clock prayer, develop places of prayer. Pray without ceasing!

 Word of the Lord for August 2013 by Prophet Phyllis Ford

 August 1, 2013

As I sought the Lord for this coming month of August I begin to understand that this month is definitely preparation and prayer planning for the coming days and months ahead. The greatest urgency came up in my spirit for the month of September 2013. So I continued to wait and even allowing the time to pass with  confirmation from others, on what was evident in my heart from the Lord. I guess I was holding out for greater clarity and more information as to why we would see such warnings and hear of greater shakings than we have already experienced. But it is evident that we are in the beginning of sorrows so think it not strange that these things are coming upon the land.

The way I understand it is that the Lord is giving His people a short window of time to prepare their hearts at the advent of serious things that are about to take place in the land and upon the people. August will provide much light upon the times we are in and what is being required of us.

God's hand is also extended to bring help, resolve and reconciliation to our lives. As we receive this grace we should reverence with grateful hearts and minds and be willing to help others to receive the same. It's like placing the breathing apparatus that we are told to put on our face in time of danger while on a plane and once we have put ours on then we make sure to help the one beside us in order to secure their safety as well. What we do this month is certainly up to us. But if we think the level of attack has been heavier than usual know that it has been to distract and to keep us off focus so that we won't know the seriousness of the hour that we are in. We must take heed. This is a time to stay alert, stay awake, stay observant before the presence of the Lord.

HE is calling us in, calling us up and calling us out from where we are. If you have already made this transition then you will also be responsible to help others who may not understand where they are. The first three weeks of this month should be a time where diligence is the order of the day. We should be watching and praying while moving forth to accomplish things that we have previously allowed to linger behind. So by tying up loose ends, completing current assignments while waiting for the next set of instructions should be a reality in the sight of a fast paced hour. The last week of August needs to find us quiet before the Father getting the necessary keys right before another major shaking. This will be a time where things that have been going on for some time have run its course and some stark realities will be setting in.

The Lord shared three analogies with me.

1.      When a storm is approaching those who are in the field, sensing the coming storm will run into the place of safety until the storm passes over. Where the storm disperses others, those who belong to the house come together and are united.
Isaiah 26: 20 "Come, my people, enter into your rooms And close your doors behind you; Hide for a little while Until indignation runs its course."

2.      The prayer strategy has shifted and there is a specific reason--we must     pray forth in agreement with God's agenda in the earth and not overly focus on the works of the enemy. Because God is about to come from His place and deal with the enemies of our day. There is a another major shaking about to occur. It is better to focus on what He is preparing for his people. (This is a battle that we will not fight at this time.) (Stand Ye Still) (2 Chronicles 20:17). So our prayer is coming into agreement with the Lord's agenda and will for us. What has He prepared for those who have been faithful unto Him. Praying in agreement with the answers/resolves  and not just fighting the problems. So we set our sights on what the Lord has prepared and provided. (This is not to say that we are not ignorant of the enemies devices.) This is a faith stand and our strength lies in God's will.

3.      He gave me the third analogy in confirmation to the second analogy through a scripture which reiterated his point. 
 1 Corinthians 16:9 "For a great door and effectual is opened to me, and there are many adversaries."  His word to me concerning this hour was, tell my people to keep their faith strong concerning the great door (and subsequent doors), which is effectual (powerful) and know that I will help them to overcome the adversaries. The more we pray concerning the door and the more we will know concerning what is going on our behalf and  the more we will position ourselves going through the door. The Lord is saying, do not spend your time--fearing, fighting and focusing on the adversaries but fix your eyes upon what I have prepared for you.

These are His words:

"I am opening up a myriad of doors in this hour. I am providing entry ways into deeper levels of truth and understanding for you to gain access and come into a renewed place of purpose for what I have called you for in this time. Some of these doors are entry ways into a greater growth and maturity that---which is of a pure stream without any compromise. This light is to help you see through dark places and walk even closer than you are now so that you may accomplish the things that are required for you along your journey. So stay before me."

"There are some of you, who need to escape from the things of the past, the enemies of their soul which have become a hindrance to their lives in going further. These things can arrest your faith and keep you from moving in pace for key advancement even cloud your thinking so that you will not be able to correctly discern the timing that you should implement certain task that include important kingdom work right now. This is not the time, nor the hour to just allow the evils of the day to overtake your mind because I have provided ways for you now to breakthrough, to break out, even break down the resistance that is ahead of you."

"Remain sober-minded, vigilant, stay free from the schemes that the enemy is waging against you---some are even within the recesses of your own mind, based on fears of your future along with hurt feelings that will try to plague you and entangled you. You must cast down every imagination ---every high thing---even every high place---that has tried to exalt itself above me, says the Lord. Bring into captive every disillusion that has to weaken you with a fainted heart and a troubled mind."

"Press in now to receive the strength and grace for the battle ahead that is being waged and continue to move forward. Because it is time to move forward, move beyond, move on, ........allow your faith to take you into the places you need to go. Advance beyond where you are now. I have provided for you the door--it is great, it is mighty, it has power. The very steps that take now will order a sound that will break down the resistance as you advance. Reach up and reach out. Reach up to a new standard that is now in place--not one of complacency but one that is joined with my life and my light. A standard that will set the order for the course for the next three years."                

"Know that I am preparing in you to be a well of answers that can bring resolution, even answers to prayers, and to hear the cries for help that will come out from the door of salvation looking for a people to lead them and show them the way. Much of what you are seeing now has to do with the awareness that the hour brings and the conditions of the people who have been held captive by evil mindsets and governing systems that will no longer be relevant by the end of the year. This is the precursor of the coming day but know with it comes my light that will shine brightly in the midst, to show you what to do, where to go, and even how to avoid during this time. Stay in watch mode--do not allow yourselves to fall into to slumber. Do not let fear overtake your heart, do not let anything to get your focus---even the coming provision, but keep your eyes upon me says the Lord as I direct your path before you. With the path will come my purposes and with my purposes will come the process."

"So enter in, examine your own heart, humble yourselves before me. For I will not only open up doors but the windows of heaven are opened unto you, even in the midst of great judgment and great shaking. Windows of escape will come for those who have laboured in much grace without complaint but with faith as I did for Paul in Damascus and you will be safe in a time of trouble. I will pour out my arrows of deliverance unto my people in certain regions because I have heard their cries. Windows that will work out a plan of victory for this hour, windows that will reach up above the heavens, so see what I am providing in my house--to utilize, to know, and to understand that which I have for you to carry what you need to war and to win over the lies and deceits of the devil." "Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past. For behold, the Lord comes out of His place, To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; The earth will also disclose her blood, And will no more cover her slain." (Isaiah 26: 20-21)   

These were the other scriptures:

Isaiah 24:18 "He who flees at the sound of the terror shall fall into the pit, and he who climbs out of the pit shall be caught in the snare. For the windows of heaven are opened, and the foundations of the earth are shaken."

2 Corinthians 11:33 "But I was let down in a basket through a window in the wall, and escaped from his hands."

Revelation 18:4 "And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues."

Isaiah 26:20-21 was the last thing the Lord repeated. It is a warning to us all in this hour.

 Word of the Lord for July 2013 & Beyond by Prophet Phyllis Ford

 June 28, 2013

“You have now entered into a time where abiding in my presence is vitally important. I am drawing a line of demarcation. I am measuring and accessing all things, and I am reclaiming that which is my own. More and more will be uncovered during this time and all that I previously spoke to you would be revealed. For the ways of men and their actions are being weighed and as a result of these actions; they will be determined good or bad.”

“There is a confusion sent by the enemy to delay, distract and discourage those who are walking out their faith, and to further discourage those who have abandoned their faith. The wisdom is not to waver in your trust concerning the covenant that I have set before you, hold on to the promises. They will not fall to the ground neither are they forgotten. Some will have to retrace their steps so that they can discover where they got off course, but as they repent I will lead them out. Others should just wait, because they are standing at the door and it is about to open before them.”

“Look into the realm of the Spirit, some of you are waiting for me to initiate things for you that I have already provided. Search my word and you will see what I have given you, power to do and overcome so move forward according to my covenant, with the life, the light and the strength that I have placed upon you as sons.”

John 1:12-13 “But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

“You are still being purged and refined, it is a necessary process, understand that even the fullness of refinement is walked out in the place of elevation, which is to come. The most important thing that you need to know is how to operate in my strength and not your own. You will then see the results you are looking for and you will advance with the victory that I have purchased. Do not allow the various things that are going on around you to veer you off course. Many things will occur now and you must be single-minded and focused so that you may walk along the path that I have prepared. This is a serious time for seeking me and walking in a close place with me. There are instructions and key direction that will be provided for you in the secret place. I am removing that which has hindered you and bringing in more of me that you will need to follow in the journey that is before you. Very serious things will happen quickly and without warning and you must be able to position yourself in a place of abiding with me. Pray without ceasing it will keep you alert spiritually and wear prayer like a garment so that as you walk out my will in that moment. In a matter of minutes you will be able to change your course to avoid coming trouble.”

“This will lead you as well to upcoming provision, ways of escape and doors of opportunity that will stand before you. Timing is everything and you must make sure that you go through the places I have prepared at the right time. What will open and work for you, will work for you. Timing, answers, directions, set yourself to know what I am showing you and revealing to you about you, and the course I have designed for you. The principles in my word do not change, but the timing and instructions for you are determined by where you are and what you have committed to do. You must pray, listen and walk in a serious disciplined life now. Don’t run after words of prophecy, run after me. Because there are specifics that you need now in order to move forward. If you don’t heed then you will find yourself distracted and not focused upon the most important details you will need down the way. The economy, the crisis of famine, civil unrest, as well as the mounting frustrations will come to a complete unraveling in these coming months. You will need to know how to shift into a complete watch mode carrying the necessary wisdom of what to do in a moment’s notice.”

“Walking in a dependency upon me, will keep you protected, as I guide you and lead the way for your deliverance.

“There is much “emotional stirrings” going on and you must know the mind of the Spirit in this hour, says the Lord. These are words to stir up fear, anger, and emotions. They don’t carry my heart but are used to justify the reactions of men. They are the works of the flesh. ( Galatians 5:16-22).   Pray, Study and Know my word—it will speak to you when you need it the most. I am setting much in order and some things must be completely torn down before the coming of the new and that which is ordained to emerge. I know that you hear the ranting and the accusations of the enemy but do not allow this to disturb you. Rein in your emotions and begin to resolve personal issues in your heart, your mind and your spirit. You will hear clearer and it will not operate as a mixture of the things of the world and the things of God. Avoid that kind of preconceived mindset that could keep you going in circles, for I am releasing to you keys to overcome and move over situations. That anointing to overcoming will carry the conviction of your faith. You are more than conquerors and it is important to read and study my word for will iron out the wrinkles of confusion and inconsistencies. Set your standards high and your discipline even higher. My power which is being released to you in my love, will remove doubt. It will impart to you a sense of oneness with me and will bring peace even in midst of coming storms.”

“In this time it is essential to understand my dominion. Keep your heart and mind in a peace through the cleansing of my word, your worship and prayer will deliver you from things that will come to trouble you. Stay away from the What if’s and begin to pray and ask me to show you the wisdom to overcome. For every “what if” the enemy will present to you, I have given you an, “I will overcome.”

You must be able to filter out what you see in the media and the reports from those who will prey upon your fears, and cause you to see things through the world system. Follow me, for there are hidden motives behind many things that are being played out in the media. Come into my presence and allow me to reveal to you, my truth and I will uncover the enemies of the day.”

“I am ready to sound the trump and I am soon to roar. Many new things are coming forth now, I have ordered them and I am ushering them in and the enemies of this day can’t hinder nor stop what I am about to do. I am bringing forth a new you and a new discipline, and a new strength that will come forth out of your weakness. A new determination and even my plans which are not new, but are new compared to the present order of things will be revealed. I breathe new life upon you for a new time, a new hour. Put on the new. Put on the garments and wear them for I have prepared them for you in this hour. They are garments of light and liberty. (I saw in a vision of garments that were shining bright white and full of light.) That which needs to be rebuilt and restored will take on this great light, so that the kingdom can be enlarged and come forth in great measure. Many shall arise, says the Lord of hosts. MANY SHALL ARISE.”

Revelations 3:4-5 “Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy. The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.”

Ephesians 4:22-24 “That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”    

Isaiah 52: 1-2 “Awake, awake; put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for from now on there shall no more come into you the uncircumcised and the unclean. Shake yourself from the dust; arise, and sit our down, O Jerusalem: loose yourself from the bands of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion.”

Special Note: Pray for Israel for the enemy has tried to set her off course but I have preserve some things, even held back some things, so that they may come right in the time appointed. Cover her with the words of my covenant, and lift up your voice and sing songs of Zion and victory. There is much evil around her, plans to strike her without warning. Cover her intercessors, cover her watchmen!! (The Lord showed me an enemy was in the camp. I saw that this man was with those who work around                          P. M. Benjamin Netanyahu.

 Word of the Lord for June 2013 & Beyond by Prophet Phyllis Ford

May 30, 2013

Now that we are crossing over from the way man operated in the world’s standard of living and we are now living our lives according to Lord’s standards and ways. We also cross over to the domain of the king and as we enter into the king’s court we must learn how to rule, reign, and walk in dominion. We have not been this way before because this is not the old path that has to do with the present world systems and how things are done on their level. But we are on a course of moving forward according to the instructions of the Lord as kingdom citizens. The Lord is releasing a strategy to his people. So as we begin to understand that even though we live in this world that we are not of this world. We walk in Christ Jesus with the understanding that we have been formed in the Father’s likeness and made in his image.

Therefore no matter what problems present circumstances may bring, as we follow the Lord’s word, his leading, and understand with humble hearts we will be victorious and we will be able to overcome situations that will be seem impossible by his grace. Jesus, our king never wanted us to live beneath our privilege. The more we remove our thinking from the systems of this world and renew our minds in kingdom understanding we will begin to see clearly what He has called us to do.  

The Lord has revealed to me that as we embrace this understanding it will reposition us and we will grab hold to the keys to that He has provided for us now. As his sons, the Lord has set a walk that is predestined for us, we have been chosen and appointed for this hour.* A big question that is being asked right now is: “How can a people overcome all the trouble that is occurring in our present times.” Many of these things have been revealed in God’s word and the answer is within the confines of knowing who are and what we have been created to be. The book of Revelation unveils an end-time wisdom on how to conquer and prevail even in the midst of that which will come upon the earth.  *(Romans 8: 14-19), (Galatians 4:4-7, Phil 3:17-20, Ephesians 2:4-6.)

These are the words that the Lord released to me for this hour:

 “I am opening up before you light and revelation—clarity and keen discernment, so that you may see not only that which is visible but even know that which is about to occur before you. And those who seek me in this hour will understand even beyond that, in the spiritual realm. I am revealing and providing clarity of others’ motives, even the enemy’s plans to counter-attack and that which would try to discourage you from continuing along the path of my will in your life now.”

“Now you will know where I am leading you and why I am bringing you in. And as I enlighten you concerning everything that is surrounding you—take heed, avoid and move away from that which is unclean and that which yields to you no good thing. Move forward into the place of readiness and diligence for there is much to do. Be careful not to judge others as this is a time of being assessed and everyone have to deal with their own issues and make decisions to resolve things for themselves before moving ahead. Remove all anger, forgive and release those around you because it can set in problems that will hinder you and the plans that I have for you until present issues are resolved. Criticism and harshness towards others will hinder you from entering into a new beauty and glory that awaits you.”

“Now as you are arriving upon the shores of this awakening you must understand that it does not give you the authority to look at others with a jaundiced eye. You are still going through a refining, a purging, and even a pruning back for the purpose for greater growth and maturity. Your divine turnaround is right before you and even nigh at your door. I have fashioned you in this time to walk in the fullness of the beauty of the kingdom.”

“As you enter into before me, many things that you have prayed for, cried out for and even waited for are about to take place. This is a time of possessing the kingdom, understanding the domain of the King and you will know what awaits you through my covenant promises. You will operate out of a different realm not as the world dictates to you that you must do to survive, but you will come to know honor and royalty: it is that which I have placed in you so you may deal with everyday situations from a different perspective. As you pray before my presence you will enter into new doors and avenues as I usher you through with great favor and mercy. Did I not call you a kingdom of priest? (Exodus 19:6)  Have I not said that you are a royal priesthood and a holy nation? (1 Peter 2:9)”.

“Now that you have crossed over into this light of understanding  to know that I created you for great service and great leadership, raised you in royalty for I have created you to be Kings and Priests. And you will walk as an heir of my covenant and hold to your faith with great conviction---you will go forth to rule and reign as I have guided you.”

Revelation 1:5-6 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

“Your past has dictated to you how to operate as a captive of the world but I have freed your hands to build and to war, and to speak forth my words. When you do as I will lead you, you will see things shift and your circumstances will give way to the words that you speak as I reveal them to you in this hour. This is the time that I am releasing before you the strategies of Kings. The true pathway is being laid out before you and you must move forward with a humble heart and embrace the power being handed to you in this hour. You will walk the way I walk, speak the way I speak, and advance in the way of Kings.”

Ecclesiastes 8:4 “Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?

“Do not forget what you have endured through the hardness of trials and the crucible of sufferings. The trying of your faith, even the lack and the times of aloneness were difficult but they have prepared you to come into the understanding of your true identity. Allow your mind to be purified and receive the knowledge that I have called and ordained you for to advance My Kingdom. Embrace my domain and enter into my dwelling place where you will, as my sons, walk in the power and manifestation of light that I am placing upon you.”

“I have hidden many of my kingdom remnant in the secret place of my covering and as they prayed I begin to mold them, shape them and make them more and more like me. Now is the hour of my unveiling and my revealing—you must carry the truth that I have placed in your heart to the nations to walk in my power and dominion. These next two months, June and July, you will see times of great acquisitions in the realm of the spirit and the things which you need the most will be provided—remember do not squander what I release to you. It is for others and then it is also for you.”

“You will see the life that follows your time of confinement and as you struggled to come out of one place know that I was preparing you, forming you and with wings I breathed upon you new life as you broke out of your cocoon and began to take flight. The transformation has begun and it is about to be a time of great exploits as you press forward, press in and press through all that tries to oppose you.” 

“So allow your hands of praise to be uplifted as it will strengthen you in times of great shifting. As I guide you through in the power of my light. Know that it was well worth it so let your praise carry you along the way to keep you from being weary as you move forward in the night. There is a distinct order now in all that you do. You are still abiding under the shadow of my presence, hold on to me now, hold on to me tight.”

Revelation 3:20-21 “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.”

Revelation 5:9-10 “And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”

Then He spoke to me about an old praise song that I use to sing in church.

“Go forth, Go forth into the ripened fields, for they are white unto harvest. The time, the time of reaping is at hand, For the souls of men to be gathered in, What was sown in tears--Will now be reaped in joy. The Word of the Lord will not return void. Cast out your nets all you fishers of men. In the power of the Spirit revival begins”

 Word of the Lord for May 2013 by Prophet Phyllis Ford

April 26, 2013

This is a time when the significant things in this hour all point us in the direction to the promises from God and lead us toward our covenant relationship with Him. During times of prayer, the Lord has continued to show me the importance of passing over the river Jordan (from a spiritual perspective), along with the significance of oil, bread, wine, and the power of prayer. There is a refining process that we have been experiencing and because of it we have become more and more aware of an important transition from where we have aspired to be, to how to obtain victory in those areas now at this time. The Lord is revea
