Esthers, Daniels, Nehemiahs and Ezras—Arise!
At the end of the first decade of the 21st century, I began to read the Book of Esther. I simultaneously began a serious study of the books of Ezra and Nehemiah:
Ezra 8:22, "For I was ashamed to ask the king for a band of soldiers and horsemen to protect us against the enemy on our way, since we had told the king, 'The hand of our God is for good on all who seek him, and the power of his wrath is against all who forsake him.'"
Nehemiah 1:3-4, "The remnant there in the province who had survived the exile is in great trouble and shame. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates are destroyed by fire. As soon as I heard these words I sat down and wept and mourned for days, and I continued fasting and praying before the God of heaven."
Nehemiah 2:8, "...for the good hand of my God was upon me."
Daniel was in office the first year of King Cyrus' reign. Daniel...(more)
Prophetic word of the Lord for President Trump:
I hear the Lord say, "I have chosen you Mr. Trump, and you will be a leader to many, not just of your people, but of the world. You will not just be seen Mr. Trump, but you will be heard, for I have released a sound in you, and that sound shall be heard around the world. It will ring true and loud, and be like a shock-wave in many countries where tyranny has reigned, and they will not be able to keep it out," says the Lord.
"For I will raise up this sound in others, even as I have raised it up in you. It's the sound of the Trumpet of the Lord, a sound of victory, a sound of freedom, a sound of faith.
"Hearts will rise to meet world problems based on the sound I've released," says the Lord. "Fear will be...(more)
Word of the Lord for 2017
I started giving the "Word of the Lord for the year" in 1988. It was originally intended for Christian International Ministers. However, in the late 1990s, Cindy Jacobs and I, and several others, started the International Round Table of Prophets. After that we started giving a more corporate word.
The word I am sharing is from Christ's letter to the Philadelphia Church, about us being granted an "Open Door" that no man or demon can shut. It is directed mainly to those who have ears to hear what Christ is saying to His Church, who are walking in all presently restored truth, and have volunteered to be a warrior in God's newly activated, offensive and powerful army called, "God's World War III."
Psalm 110:3 says, "Your people will be volunteers in the day of...(more)
