From the desk of Bill Yount:
A prophetic alabaster box has been broken open and is releasing seemingly unknown voices who have paid the price of being hidden, while the Lord was developing their character.
Vince Viozzi is one of those voices. I have known Vince over many years and have witnessed the fire in his bones to not only hear God speak but to live it.
I knew the day would come when his anointing and integrity would break him out into the open place to touch multitudes. His word below is timely for us. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"The Bride is in Preparation to Sit on Her Throne"
The Queen Bride!
Many prophetic voices have been in agreement that we are in a season where God is raising up women into significant ministry positions. I was also asking the Lord about this as I was in my early day prayer posture, and I heard Him say:
"I am raising up women in this hour and this season because I am preparing My Bride to sit upon the Queen's Throne and to know how to execute the governmental aspects of the Kingdom of God! Women of the Kingdom best represent this governing position, because they reveal My heart for a Queen Bride. It is a picture of the Queen Bride who will also rule and reign with Me at My side for all of eternity."
In the Word we see a clear picture of the Church as being on throne(s) and given authority to execute judicial decisions (Rev. 4:4 & 20:4). This same Church Body of Christ is the Bride of Christ, and if Jesus is the King, then His Bride is the Queen!
"The Spirit is now desiring to reveal the Bride of Christ to the world."
Psalm 45:9-15, "Kings' daughters are among Your honorable women; At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir... Because He is your Lord, worship Him... The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace; Her clothing is woven with gold. She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors; The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to You. With gladness and rejoicing they shall be brought; They shall enter the King's palace."
The First Lady and Queen Elizabeth II:
In America, we have the President's wife under the title of "The First Lady". She is given many different assignments to take on as an ambassador of sorts for her husband, the President, and for the nation she represents; in this case the USA. This particular position is not given the amount of authority that would equate to a queen, but it still shows us a picture of sorts that the bride of the national leader is in a very influential position! We are Christ's First Lady!
"Queen Elizabeth 2nd has been the Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand since Feb. 6th 1952. She is Head of the Commonwealth and Queen of 12 countries that have become independent since her accession" (Wikipedia). She is obviously a woman of great authority and has executed many governmental duties.
The "Entire" Bride of Christ
Galatians 3:28 says that in God's Kingdom there is neither male nor female. Men are also part of the Bride of Christ. When it comes to the realm of the spirit there is not a division between male and female. We are spirit beings, born of the Spirit and baptized in the Spirit, made alive in the Spirit! When we die our spirits will return to God. Psalm 146:4, "His spirit departs, he returns to his earth; In that very day his plans perish." (Photo via flickr)
Ecclesiastes 12:7, "Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it."
This fleshly casing is only for earthly purposes, but when it comes to Kingdom purposes we are operating in the principles of the spirit realm! We are operating with spiritual authority!
Some of the Scriptures above indicate that as the Bride of Christ, we will all be ruling and reigning with Him! That Bride is involved in many leadership duties and governmental decisions. Revelations 20:1 and 21:1-3 also point to this, as other Scripture points to this issue as well.
"...God is raising up women into significant ministry positions"
Proverbs 14:1 says, "The wise woman builds her house..." Proverbs 31 is a picture of this woman and is ultimately a type of the Bride of Christ. As you look into the description of this type of woman, you find her involved in several administrative duties and business ventures. She is like the merchant ships, she buys a field, from the profits of her produce and she plants a vineyard. She perceives that her merchandise is good, she makes linen garments and sells them, and she supplies sashes for the merchants. She watches over the ways of her household! Obviously women have a God-given ability to be great leaders in many situations and make quality decisions!
The Season of the Spirit and the Bride
Revelation 22:17, "And the Spirit and the Bride say, 'Come!'"
I sense that we have entered into the season of the Spirit and the Bride! I am feeling the Lord saying that, "The Spirit is now desiring to reveal the Bride of Christ to the world. The governmental mantle is being placed upon many women in this hour to reveal a beautiful picture to the world of the Bride that I am choosing for My own!
"She is the Queen Bride! She is not only beautiful to Me, but she is intelligent, intuitive and inspirational, and many great purposes of Mine are about to be accomplished through anointed women of God who will be under My care and My direction because they are willing to answer, 'Yes Lord!' They are open to doing it My way! They are also not reserved or holding back in expressing their love for Me! They understand relationships and they understand love and I am going to use them because they posses these qualities," says the Lord!"
It was not too long ago that the book of Esther was being highlighted amongst God's people. The enemy was trying to extinguish the people of God, especially in America. But we have risen up and have seen a great defeat in the enemy's evil plans! Esther was not just destined to defeat Haman, she was designed to take her position in the palace! She was the Queen! Chosen by the Spirit for, "Such a time as this" (Esther 4:14) to rule and reign at His side! For He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords! (Photo by Donna Smallenberg "For Such a Time as This" via Elijah List Shopper)
Esther 2:15-18, "Now when the turn came for Esther...to go in to the king...Esther obtained favor in the sight of all who saw her. So Esther was taken to King Ahasuerus, into his royal palace...The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti. Then the king made a great feast, the Feast of Esther, for all his officials and servants; and he proclaimed a holiday in the provinces and gave gifts according to the generosity of a king."
