The Valley of Decision
Many prophets, intercessors and key leaders across the global Body of Christ all agree that we are in a critical time which the prophet Joel spoke of, declaring, "Multitudes are in the valley of decision..." (Joel 3:14).
Could it be that there are multitudes of individuals who are in such a pivotal, strategic time, but also that the destiny of entire nations are in a valley of decision? We (James W. Goll and Johnathan Stidham) believe this is the case. We believe many of you reading this article will be in agreement as well.
Jesus said, "For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them" (Matthew 18:20). The Word of God also declares, "How could one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight...?" (Deuteronomy 32:30). Yes, we are better together.
Those of us in leadership know what we like, but today I want to ask you, what do you dislike? Surprisingly, it may hold the key that would unlock God's purpose for your life.
Out of the Comfort Zone
Every teacher loves to dig out the truth from God's Word like a gardener develops a crop. Every God-ordained pastor's mission is to guard and protect his or her flock. Evangelists love crowds, and they thrive on preaching sermons. Prophets love to give extraordinary direction to the Body of Christ. Apostles rejoice when they see the Kingdom of God begin to come together and use the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit.
But these are not the only ways God uses these ministers and their ministry gifts. When God's anointed pursue routine and the comfort of their strengths and preferences instead of the unction of God, they have exalted their gifting over their calling and made their position nothing short of an idol...

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†CREDENCE: Credence means truthfulness, or believability.
¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†There is a revival of truthfulness coming to America and the world. It is going to be made apparent the difference between the truth tellers and those who only speak from their own hearts. God is going to separate the real from the fake and is doing this in the earth right now!
¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†There is a great uncovering of the lies that we have been told and some of the truths that we have held dear in our country. He is going to shake all that can be shaken so that which remains will be the unadulterated truth of God's Word, and He is about to show forth who His true prophets are... (more)
The Spirit of the Lord is calling His Bride to draw near, in this eighth month, like never before. Eight is the number of new beginnings and the Spirit of the Lord is inviting His Bride into a new day where she is filled and being filled with the wonder and awe of His amazing love and redemption.
There are some mandates the Lord is issuing:
• It's time for all other voices to be silenced.
• It's time to enter into a new level of intimacy.
• It's time for the Bride to develop dove's eyes.
• It's time to recognize Christ as our true treasure.
