From the desk of Steve Shultz:
This is an excellent word by Troy Goode. Chuck Pierce first introduced me to Troy just a month ago. This word by Troy is filled with great grace from the Lord. He's indeed helping us to break free.
Even so, this word, though filled with great grace, has a couple of gentle, yet sobering warnings from the Spirit that this month is a good – even CRUCIAL month – to repent and break free of things where any of us might be just "getting by" without a little "spank" on the hand from the Lord.
"Get rid of some things now," is what I'm hearing the Lord say.
It's always better to judge ourselves first!
2 Corinthians 13:5 Put yourselves to the test and judge yourselves, to find out whether you are living in faith.
Blessings in Grace AND obedience!

I hear the Holy Spirit saying, "September is a month of shifting. It is a month for you to monitor like the sands of time in an hourglass."
He's been wooing you and whispering to you to make changes for many months now. He teaches by His Word or He allows circumstances to teach us. His perfect will is that you would finally bend to His whisper out of your fear of, trust in, and love for Him.
It is because He loves you that He is calling you to a higher level of living; however He is very prepared to love you by lifting His hand ever so slightly off you in order for you to experience circumstances that will teach you through other means – what it is to fear the Lord.
A Time Of "Breaking Free"
There are many dark forces that have been unleashed against the Kingdom of God and in this season; and the Father is serious about raising a people who will be able to take the fight to the enemy with clean hands, pure hearts, and souls that have not been given to idols. (Photo via Freeimages)
He's wanting to break you free from things you've said in your heart that you "can't live without" because those things have deceptively become your master. He's wanting you to live your life without the crutches you've devised and the coping mechanisms you've constructed.
Yes, this is a time of "breaking free" and His commitment to you is so intense that's He's prepared to bring discipline in order to usher you into freedom. Many of you are already in the midst of His discipline and the Lord would say that you are not under attack; cease praying against what isn't there. This is not an attack but a summoning from your Father to change. Don't resist Him; submit to His discipline and it will bring you to levels you could not have achieved without it.
His discipline is actually His mercy because He's not allowed you to be mortally wounded; only the socket of your thigh has been injured to remind that He is the Lord. This is a redemptive judgment and in the coming days your limp will be a testimony that you have overcome.
God gave Jezebel space to repent and her window closed. Paul told us not to receive God's grace in vain. We're in that kind of moment again. God's grace is not a license to do what you want, rather it is a supernatural power enabling you to be what God has called you to be.
Be sober in this month, be on alert, and break the allegiance with what or who He's been telling you to break allegiance with; for September will be a month that you will see your time of ignoring His voice evaporate. This is a month when God will close the window for you to respond to His whisper and force you to respond to circumstances.
Troy Goode, Senior Pastor

Pastors Troy and Theresa Goode are the co-pastors and founders of New Dimension Church in Providence, Rhode Island. A multi-cultural church committed to revival and reformation. The passion of their lives is to see people relentless in their pursuit of God's presence for the purpose of serving as His agents on the earth. They have made New England their home since 1993 and were married in 1994. The couple have two children, Troy Jr. and Maya.
After serving as associate pastors in Boston, MA for 10 years the Lord called them to Providence, R.I. to establish New Dimension Church in 2008 which is a part of Harvest International Ministries (H.I.M.) apostolic network of churches. Together they serve as the U.S. Ambassadors for The Father's House Trust, an organization committed to healing the wounds of the fatherless. Troy also serves as the Chancellor for the New England Wagner Leadership Institute (WLI).

They are two of the new voices God is lifting whose sole desire is to see revival in the Church and reformation come to the mountains of culture.
