Jewels from Judy: It’s Time to Cross Over, Trust Me!
Judy A Bauman

A strong word from the Father concerning the revival of the Church and His promises fulfilled. 

It's Time to Cross Over, Trust Me!

“It’s time to cross over, My children, but heed the warning I gave to Israel before they went into the Promised Land. Follow My instructions and do not get ahead of Me! When they followed My leading, even when it did not make sense in the natural, the Walls of Jericho miraculously came down! The fortified walls of the enemy are no match for Me and My heavenly hosts! The enemy may have had many parts and pieces come together for the ‘Curse Bomb’[1] to be successful when it was launched in 2019, but the explosive power of My blessings will overtake his worldwide curse like a tsunami.

“You must know where you are to take your stand in this time of great change. While the enemy has made it look like he is winning, I assure you that I Am so far ahead of him that he is blinded by the dust left in My wake! My plan was already put into motion long before he was created, so do not buy into his rhetoric. Trust Me!

“Consider the rebuilding of My city, Jerusalem as is written in the book Nehemiah. See how each builder faithfully took his place and rebuilt and repaired the wall and gates. The enemies of Israel mocked, ridiculed, threatened them in fierce anger, and did everything to discourage the rebuilding. They tried to coerce and deceive Nehemiah to sin against Me, but he did not hide like a coward where he knew he had no right to be. The enemy plotted to murder the builders, so they built with one hand and defended with the other. My people listened to Nehemiah’s wisdom and kept trumpeters nearby so when the enemy came, the others would rush to their defense. In coming together, they overcame and finished the project even though they were under great distress!

“In many cases, the Church has become so competitive with one another that the common goal of the Kingdom of God, to ‘Go make disciples,’ has been neglected and even forsaken. Some have completely forgotten the mandate given her. Pastors and leaders, I speak to you. This is not about growing ‘your’ church, it’s about growing My kingdom! I desire to work in your midst, but if you hold onto your flock as if you were the one who died for their sins, you are building your own kingdom. If you are jealous of other pastors’ success or rejoice in their failure, that is conduct unbecoming a leader who is called by My name. This is NOT a competition! Do not forget how far I have brought you, and remember, My body is large and not confined to any individual vision.”

“If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.”
1 Corinthians 12:26 ESV

"You are looking at a gate, a place where I have called you to build, but it is not the whole city. LOOK! Open your eyes and see. The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. One reason there are ‘few’ is because some leaders are heaping disciples to themselves. I have called apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. Leaders are to raise up the Body to walk the earth and bring in the harvest. Send them out when I call them. Just because they leave you does not mean they have forsaken Me. Again I say, if you raise disciples to only serve you, you are building your own kingdom. This is made evident when you won’t release them without a fight. This should not be.

"Remember in Nehemiah, the people were counted, every tribe and family mentioned. I know My beloved ones by name and where I have called them to be, so do not get between Me and them. That is a dangerous place for you to be found! Do not be stubborn and unwilling to be trained and disciplined by My hand. I discipline those I love. Do you feel convicted? Repent quickly or your lampstand will be removed. Encourage those I send to you and do not prohibit them from their place on the wall – train, equip, and bless them when they go. Do this in front of the congregation so that more will want to follow My leading to go where I Am sending them.

“If you will do this, then the true revival you desire will come to your house. Have you not heard? I desire revival fire all around the earth. It is time! However, you must be willing to release My chosen ones into the field where I have called them and not hoard them to yourself. Hoarders will not be allowed to take part in this amazing harvest coming in your day. Join hands with other leaders, and if you have a hatchet, bury it![2] Reconcile and be restored if it is possible. If it is not possible, forgive, shake the dust off your feet, and release the relationship to Me. I will then move you into the true kingdom work that I have called you to do.

“If you have heard My voice, but the one who gives you pastoral care is holding you to themselves, be like Abraham and leave the land of your father and go to the place I show you. You will be blessed for obeying me as will many others.

“Beloved, if you build My house, build My people, you will Cross Over and see My promises fulfilled. Trust Me!”

Scriptures to consider: The Book of Nehemiah, particularly chapters 3-6,
Isaiah 51:7-11, Joshua 3:14-17 Hebrews 11:30; John 1:1-5, 14, 2 Kings 6:14-17, 2 Sam 5:22-25; Ephesians 4:11-16; Hebrews 12:1-11; Romans 12:18; Luke 9:5, Genesis 12:1-3

(Quick-link does not include the book of Nehemiah. I highly recommend you read it! It is so rich!)

Jewels from Judy: Bound to Unforgiveness
Judy A Bauman
A vision in the night followed by a word from the Lord: Bound to Unforgiveness


In a vision of the night, I saw a woman sitting in Sheol. I knew she was a professing Christian, so I was greatly troubled to see her in hell. She sat in a gloomy corner looking dejected and tormented. As I looked closer, I saw a shadowy figure lurking in the darkness to her left. My attention was then drawn to her wrist. As she pulled her hand forward, she looked at me with hopeless eyes. I could see that she was handcuffed to the menacing figure. In life, this man had been her abuser.

Shocked, I asked the Lord why she was there. Just then, I heard what she had said while she was still alive. She said, “I can forgive anything, but I can’t forgive THAT!!!” Because she had refused the Lord’s repeated promptings to forgive him, she was forever chained to the memory of what he had done. I also knew that if this person had repented before God, forgiveness and salvation had come, but because she did not forgive him, she was not forgiven.

I awoke and the Lord said that this scene is a warning to those still living in unforgiveness to an abuser. This is what He said:

“Child, I love you. You are Mine and no one can take you away from Me. You are given the choice to walk with Me or not, but no one can take you from Me. Again I will tell you I love you.

“You have doubted this because of the “dark thing” that happened, but I was there and saw and wept with you. It did not go unnoticed or unpunished. Release forgiveness as it will free you. Right now, you are chained to that which you hate, but as you forgive the chains will drop off. You will be as the three men in the fiery furnace – you will come out with only the ropes that bound you burned. You will not smell like smoke and no hair on your head will be singed.” (See Daniel 3) “Trust Me, Beloved, trust Me. Forgive and gain your freedom.”


The Lord gave me very specific directions about releasing this word to the church. I believe this woman was symbolic of every believer, regardless of gender, that has withheld forgiveness. It was her act of unforgiveness that caused her bondage. This did not mean God could not have forgiven the abuser, but that she was in bondage to unforgiveness. This is about her and not him. “Vengeance is Mine,” says the Lord.

If there is a person you will not forgive, then the warning of this vision and this word is for you. If you have been praying and asking the Lord why you have felt so far from Him, He is telling you right now. Do not think this is for someone else when you know there is someone you refuse to forgive for what they did to you. Please read the Lord’s priceless words in Matthew 6:14-15; 7:21-27; 18:21-35 and Luke 23:34. There are many more examples, but read these Scriptures, release forgiveness, and walk away free! It is the key that unlocks the chain! Jesus is praying for you right now. He will set you free. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed!

Jewels from Judy: FIRE OF HOPE

A Vision Followed By A Word From The Lord

Friends, I first shared this in March 2009 and believe it is important for our times. I pray it blesses you.

In the Father’s love,
Judy A Bauman



FIRST: I saw myself standing in the middle of a room with words that were strung together circling my head. As they were going around me, some would go in my ear and through my head and then out of my mouth. They were words of every kind - words of encouragement and words of life; words of criticism and death. The words that I took in, whether good or bad, eventually came out of my mouth.

The words of encouragement, comfort, and edification were from the kingdom of God and brought forth life. They originated from faith, hope, and love and came from the One who loves me.

The words of criticism, condemnation, and discouragement were rooted in fear and originated from the kingdom of darkness. They brought forth death and discontentment. The words of death were determined to bring havoc and confusion and were from the one who hates not only me but everyone, as we are made in God's image.

SECOND: I saw myself begin to dance in flames of the love of God. As I danced, all of the words caught on fire. Those of Satan's domain were burnt up and created a sickly green flame accompanied by a strong odor of sulfur; but the words of the Lord were on fire with flames of yellow, orange, red, and blue. These words were not consumed by the fire, and their flames danced with the rhythm of the music. They gave off a wonderful lasting scent of flowers and delightful herbs.

A VOICE CAME OUT OF THE FLAME that I was dancing in and said, "In Me is faith, hope, peace, and love. I Am the Flame of Hope. I burn away anxiety, oppression, fear, confusion, condemnation, doubt, worry, discouragement, distraction, and critical words."

All the words were aflame. The words of death were completely destroyed. However, those that were of the Lord were not consumed. Like the burning bush was with Moses - direction, purpose, and destiny came forth from the flame.

"Dance in the fire of My love and let Me burn up everything that is not of Me and let Me leave everything else ablaze with the Fire of Hope."

INSIGHTS: One thing I felt cautioned about was if I did not resist and oppose the words of death, they would end up coming out of my own mouth. As the Lord spoke the world into existence, I felt warned that speaking words of death would bring destruction in my life and the lives of those around me. I also sensed the words of life I spoke would bring great blessings to me and to all touched by my words.

This was not as much about me as it was the Church, the Body of Christ, whom I represented in this vision.

Proverbs 18:21 The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

Other Scripture References to consider where speaking is concerned: Exodus 3; Deuteronomy 30:15-20; Acts 2:3, 4; First Corinthians 3:11-15; Hebrews 10:24-27; 12:25-29, Matthew 12:33-37, 15:18; First Peter 4:11; James 3:10; Genesis 1

Jewels from Judy: Charlatans Have Entered My House

Judy A Bauman

“Charlatans have entered My house! Some of the watchmen have failed to see the hirelings who have breached their walls. The fog of deception is so thick; the shepherds have not seen that they themselves have unwittingly opened the gate to thieves. They have not even been alerted by the words the sooth-sayers speak in private – words of slander and gossip and mistrust. Even violent vengeful words are overlooked as ‘passion’. They have allowed them to come into My house and ignore them ravaging My sheep. I hear the sheep, which I have placed under their care, bleating in My ears. They cry out for help, but the charlatans have gained favor with these leaders. The very ones who are given authority to expose and deal with the wolves, have not only embraced their lies, but they are propagating them.

“The enemy is subtle and deceptive and knows where My watchmen have been wounded in the past. He has sent in charlatans to distract and provoke them to speak from their wounds and offenses. I understand that in days past, some suffered false accusations, but understand that charlatans are using that information to work the leaven of the Pharisees and of Herod into some ministries. These are ministries that have heard clearly from Me in the past, so their reputation keeps them in front of the multitudes. I advise them to remove the leaven that puffs up and distorts what I Am is saying in this day. As I told the church at Sardis, wake up and strengthen that which remains. Strengthen that which is weak.

“Remember what you have received and heard and repent for prophesying from the ‘Intel’ received from the charlatans. Do not prophesy and use each other’s words to ‘confirm’ what I Am saying when I have not spoken to you. Keep true to the mandate given you. Stop calling conspiracy what others are calling conspiracy. Only address what I am calling you to address. I am more concerned with what is happening in My house than all the evil in the enemy’s camp.

“Do you recall how many Israelites it took to rebuild the walls and gates of Jerusalem? Even Nehemiah, who was overseeing the project, could only be in one place at a time. The enemy has some of you thinking you are to be on multiple walls at a time while also guarding the gates. However, this will dilute your ministry, and it will become as ineffectual as a hammer driving a nail into the dirt. The thief seeks to do this not only to the ministry I gave you but also to your physical body. So beware!

“I have given you specific assignments and skills. I have gifted you for particular purposes. Will you continue to think so highly of yourself because of the gifts I have given, that you will run (mind, body, and soul) to and fro, wildly waving your arms thinking you are warning My sheep when you are only repeating the grandiose tales of the charlatan and bringing a sense of hopelessness to the Body? Are you not called to be a voice of hope found in Christ?

“My first apostles had assignments and followed My Holy Spirit as to where to and when to go. They perceived where I was sending them, as well as when I was prohibiting them from going into an area. I exhort you, My watchman, to go back to the blueprints I gave you at first and do those things. Go back and study the plans and share the GOOD NEWS! The anointing I gave you is not for your own edification, but for those whom I’ve called you to impart all My Holy Spirit can give. So don’t confuse your anointing with My desire for them.

“Pray to Me to recognize the charlatans and ask Me if you have embraced and pulled one or more close to your bosom. Some of you have pulled them so close you don’t see they have wrapped themselves around you so tightly that they will soon devour you! Take the sword of the Spirit, which is My word, to free yourself from the wicked one before you are consumed! This is a spiritual battle, so it must be fought and won by My Spirit. Pray for MY discernment. If you look closely, you will see a trail of body bags left in the charlatan’s wake. Investigate whether an accusation presented to you is true or false. Do not assume either way. Do not go by a vague confirmation, but look for tangible evidence. I will expose it and show you, but these are experts at the art of deception, so you must carefully watch and listen.

“Remember, you are to equip the Body for the work of the ministry, so do not use My beloved as steppingstones for yours. Do not build a ministry that becomes a ‘monument to man,’ for that will be your only reward. To whom much is given, much is required. You think you are awake, but if you mock those whom you deem asleep, you yourself are deceived and asleep. You mock My sheep because you think they are forsaking the fellowship and rejecting your leadership, but what many of them are really doing is hiding in Me! Do not sit in the seat of mockers and the scornful. My sheep hear My voice and know I Am their Ever-present help in times of trouble.

“Repent and return to your First Love, Christ Jesus, or I shall remove your lampstand. Those whom I love I reprove and discipline. Repent and be zealous for Me anew. Be ready to punish your disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

“He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the watchman and shepherds,”

The Lord of the army of angels



Personal note: It is with fear and trembling that I submit this word to the watchmen and the shepherds, the leaders of God’s house. Though the Lord used masculine pronouns when giving me this word, this appeal is for both men and women who serve the Lord in this capacity. I believe this is a kairos Joshua 5:13-15 moment for many in the ministry!

char·la·tan (shär′lə-tən) n. A person who makes elaborate, fraudulent, and often voluble claims to skill or knowledge; a fraud.

Jewels from Judy: The Currency of Heaven

Judy A Bauman

The Currency of Heaven: An Exhortation from the Father

When I inspire a person, and they receive it, there is life released through and in what they do. I have given mankind great abilities. While some may take credit for themselves, those who give Me glory for what they do, I will breathe life into them and give them more.

I am looking for people who will allow Me to inspire them. I am looking for people who will receive the training of the world, yet not be tainted by godless teachers. I can take one’s training and magnify it by bringing great ideas and inventions to solve problems and bring relief to the orphan and widow.

When greed arises, and those ideas are used for selfish reasons, it causes trouble. The greed of man cannot produce the righteousness of God. You cannot serve God and mammon.

Your presence is the currency of heaven. THAT is what is most valuable to Me. Come listen and hear what I have to tell you. Come eat and drink my food and water, My wine, My milk; eat My honey and be refreshed in My presence.

  • Allow Me to instruct you
  • Allow Me to feed you
  • Allow Me to lead you on My path
  • Come and listen
  • Hear My words spoken to your heart
  • I will give you rest
  • I will give you strength for the day

The solutions you seek to the questions you ask will be given to you when you do.

I Am waiting for you,

Four years ago, I shared the first sentence of this word on Facebook. In the comments, I read that it was the beginning of a word the Lord gave me. I had to search a bit to find it, but it blessed me anew and I hope it does you too! 

Jeremiah 29:12-14a Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord

A Warning for the Church: The Electrical Outlet

In a vision, I was looking at the inside of a church from the entrance toward the sanctuary, down the aisle, and toward the platform. At the front of this empty church, between the two front pews, and in front of the Communion Table dangled an electrical outlet. It was suspended in the air from a gray, 1 inch thick, flexible conduit. Heavy electrical wire came into the top right side of the electrical box and exited the bottom left side.

I saw a man's hand holding a large extension cord in his left hand and he reached up to plug it into the dangling outlet with his right hand. The outlet only twisted and turned away from him. He tried this repeatedly with no success. Discouraged, he finally turned and walked away sad and frustrated.

I asked the Lord what this short vision meant. As I prayed, the scene replayed in my mind. I noticed that the outlet was not affixed. It just dangled there in mid-air and was not firmly anchored into the structure of the church. Because it was not installed correctly, any pressure applied to the outlet caused it to twist and turn and no one was there to help hold it in place. There wasn't enough stability to allow the person to plug in their extension cord. It was also above his head, so it wasn’t easy to reach.

I believe what the Lord was showing me is the outlet represented the power of Holy Spirit that is available to the believer, but leaders in the Church were keeping people from Him. Jesus said of them in Matt 23:13 “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in people's faces. For you neither enter yourselves nor allow those who would enter to go in.

The man represented a believer’s desire to get plugged into God's power and authority to gain a greater understanding of His ways. The Holy Spirit, seen as the Electrical Outlet, was in the front of the church and near the Communion Table, but He wasn't given a firm place there. He was not anchored in the church, and He was not easily accessible. The believer understood this was the POWER SOURCE for the church but regrettably couldn’t plug into it.

Currently, I believe this vision speaks into why many churches are not experiencing growth or are altogether failing. If the Holy Spirit of God is kept out of reach and not given a firm foundation to which people can plug into and get charged up, they will get discouraged and leave.
It deeply grieved me when I saw him walk away looking so dejected.

Unless the Holy Spirit is given a secured place in the church to love, save, guide, teach, build, confirm, comfort, empower, fill, speak, renew, bear witness, convict, sanctify, anoint, correct, heal, counsel, rebuke, send, and give hope to the believers - that church will not be permitted to experience lasting growth. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken and that shaking begins in the church. Amen.

This vision was shown to me in 1998, but recently it came to mind and as I read the vision, I knew I was to share it with you. I believe it carries a kairos message for the church and her leaders because this is what has happened recently to many of them. I pray when people come seeking fellowship with a Body of believers, they will be able to plug into the power of God and His wonderful ways. I pray those seekers will find Him in our midst.

In the Father’s Love,
Judy A Bauman

Will You Listen for the Answer?

Jewels from Judy: Will You Listen for the Answer?
Judy A Bauman

Sitting in the Secret Place, journal and pen in hand, I fight distractions and seek the Lord. His still small voice begins to speak to my heart. It is not just a message for me, but for you too!

Will You Listen for the Answer?
I have the answers to every prayer if My beloved Church will stay with Me long enough to hear them. Most calling themselves Christians pray, and then go about their day not realizing that while they want an answer to their prayer, they have not stopped talking long enough to listen for it. You cannot hear an answer if you are always the one speaking. Being still is how you hear the answer to your prayers. Do you want answers? Of course you do, and My heart longs to give them to you!


“While I do understand the pulls of the world, time must be set aside for prayer offered with thanksgiving and praise. This is when you see what I Am showing you. Ideas will come, answers will manifest themselves, and My peace will guide you. Answers will come more readily, and when you need them, if you wait until I have released you from the secret place. Make time for Me! I will give you My peace and will provide what you need; however, you must tarry with Me.

“People get to the point where they are desperate for answers. Since they won’t wait for Me to release them from a place of prayer, they run to and fro trying to find answers from friends, relatives, co-workers, clergy, and worse, the internet and media.

“My Word instructs you for a purpose. While I do work through others, My remnant must first learn to tarry with Me. The anointing I placed in you through My Holy Spirit will be in agreement with the solution. Be still and know I Am God.

“Continually tell My Church that in order for them to receive answers, they must seek My face and be still and know I Am God. As they do, the shakings of this age will pass through them. I will tell each of you where to go, whether to the right or to the left, and what to do. I will give answers. I will build My temple with those willing to be My fellow-workers. Those whose work remains will receive a reward. That is My promise.

“The kingdom of God is not just words but the power of My Holy Spirit. All other power is counterfeit and seeks its own will. Hide yourself under the shadow of My wing. I Am your Refuge and your Fortress. Make Me your dwelling and you shall not be afraid.”
Your Abba

This “Jewels from Judy” post is adapted from an encounter I wrote about in my first book, Jewels from the River, All-Consuming Fire. I pray it is a blessing to you as you seek Him in the coming year.

Jewels from Judy: The Eyes of My Heart

Judy A Bauman

THE EYES OF MY HEART: An exhortation from Abba Father
“Child, when you look into the eyes of My heart you will only see My love and devotion towards you. If you look for condemnation, you will not find it. If you are feeling condemned, come. Come look into the eyes of My heart and see yourself the way I see you. I see you in the light of perfected love given to you through the Cross of Calvary. My Son, Jesus, is what I see when I look at you as you are in Him.

“I ask you to guard your heart for out of it flows the issues of life. You have an enemy, and he is the accuser of the brethren. So, if a voice of condemnation is moving you, know that it is a voice that moves you away from My perfect love for you. Perfect love, that is to say, love that has been perfected in you, will cast out all fear. Allow My perfect love to cast out the fear in you. Beloved, let My love cast out that condemning voice.

“Stand in My holy light and allow Me to shine through the darkness. Let My love for you break down the walls you have built up around yourself. Those walls do not protect you. They keep you from letting Me in your heart. Trust Me. Let Me be your protection. I Am your Shield and Strength. I Am well able to keep you in My care.

“Trust Me, follow Me, invite Me to be with you where you are. I will never forsake you. Look into the eyes of My heart, says the Lord your God, and see that My love for you is complete. My love will see you through every season. Look into the eyes of My heart, beloved.”

Scriptures to consider:
Romans 8:1-2, John 3:16; Proverbs 4:23; Revelation 12:10; John 8:12; Matthew 5:14; 2 Samuel 22:3, 31; Proverbs 3:5-6; Hebrews 3:5

Personal note:
Praying you and yours have a blessed Thanksgiving week! We have so much to be thankful for through Christ our Lord. I do hope you take time to hear from your heavenly Father and let Him know how thankful you are for Him!


In His love,
Judy A Bauman

An exhortation from Jesus’ heart to yours

“When a man repents of a sin and then goes back to justify it, a greater sin lurks at the door. This is especially true for those commissioned into ministry. Sin cannot be justified! Do not look at miracles as proof that a minister is in good standing with Me. Do not confuse My grace and compassion on My sheep with man’s anointing.

“Take heed to what is written in Matthew 7:21-23 ‘Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”

“Repentance must be sure and complete. Going back to justify the means for an end will only beget greater sin. This doorway will be the downfall of a man if it is not quickly shut and sealed with the Blood of Jesus – My Blood. Sin justified in the pulpit will be greatly judged. Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

“When I move upon My ministers to groom and feed and care for the Body, I do not have them each act the same way. I made you different for a reason, as is proved by your unique fingerprints, yet My Church ever seeks to ‘fit in.’

Unfortunately, more of My leaders are learning from each other than they are from My leading – as are the people learning how to react to My touch from others. They learn the motions of man and they fail to learn from Me, their Standard. You cannot look to man to teach you how My glory will move. That is looking to the past to see the present.

“If you must look to the past, read the Gospels. I Am the same yesterday, today, and forever. My ways are not man’s ways, My ‘methods’ were never the same. I did that on purpose so that you would see that you are not to get stuck in some methodology. Mimicking the motions of man is nothing short of idolatry, as is running after the anointing. Idolizing what a man does when performing great and mighty things does NOT glorify Me! Many times, what you see as a great miracle is nothing short of divination. Did I not warn of the deception to come? If you indeed see a great miracle, then who should be given glory, honor and praise – My ministers or Me? Who are you going to chase after?

“If you follow anyone else’s lead but Mine, you are following a copy. You are following a miniature model of Me – NOT ME! It would be like seeing a model airplane and expecting you can get inside and fly somewhere. Can you get in a model car and go for a drive? I think not!

“Learn, My Children, learn that you cannot operate in My glory outside of Me. You cannot conjure up My Spirit by emotionally charging the people. You will see My glory on those I touch. They are often the ones no man lays hands upon because their faith has reached heaven and their prayers have come up as a sweet aromatic sacrifice. It is My touch, not man’s that changes them. They come from that place transformed by My glory. It may not be immediate, but it will be lasting.

“Do you want to see people healed and whole? Then bring them into My presence in sweet and sincere worship. Enter My courts with thanksgiving and praise; then come into My presence in worship. I seek those who worship in spirit and in truth. As you minister to Me, allow My Holy Spirit to minister to the people.

“I did nothing unless the Father showed Me. I said nothing unless the Father spoke it. Do likewise and not one will walk away unfulfilled. As they step into that realm of glory, everything that is not of Me will be burned up. This is where cancers fall off, ears open, eyes see, hearts are turned from stone to flesh – the dead now live! You will not have to work in My holy presence to see people healed as their faith in Me – not man – is what brings lasting healing.

“Beloved, you do not have to lose your voice screaming and yelling and stomping around. I did not do that, so neither should you. I was stern with demons, but I never had to scream at them to come out. That is flesh trying to accomplish something begun in the Spirit. Paul warned you in Galatians 3:3 the foolishness of this thinking. I never shoved people to the ground to demonstrate My strength in the Spirit, nor did I push people over and call it the anointing. These are My beloved sheep being pushed around, so I advise and charge you to treat them as I would. The fruits of the Spirit are evident.

“David was a man after My own heart, but when he mishandled My glory his ignorance cost Uzza his life. Uzza was guilty of presumption in his attempt to steady what I was shaking – a difficult but necessary lesson for My people.

“Do not stabilize what I Am shaking!

“David was guilty of going ahead with his plan without including My instruction. He had good intentions, but they were outside of My leading. David had to come to Me in great reverence and humility to learn how to carry My glory. So, if you see someone irreverently handling My glory, pray for them to gain wisdom. They have gone ahead of My leading. Do not condemn them, pray for these as some are My David’s – those also after My own heart. Be merciful as I Am merciful.

“Please, stop looking to man, Church; look only to your heavenly Father. My sheep struggle to understand who I Am because of the abuses of their earthy fathers, teachers, and mentors. Shoving them around only contributes to a false image of who I Am. I thoroughly taught and portrayed this love and I expect you to follow My lead – not man’s hype."

In My Father’s love,

Arise! Release a Roar of Triumph and Victory! "From Sheep to Lions"  by Dutch Sheets and Greg Hood

In a recent dream sent to me by my friend, Greg Hood, he and I were at a lake shaped like America, about to go fishing. An angel appeared and told us we could not fish just yet. He told us to travel to a certain place and partner on an important assignment with 2 leaders: a charismatic Baptist pastor and a Word of Faith teacher/prophet. (Greg is a prophet/apostle.) (Photo of Greg Hood)

In the dream, we traveled on Radah Airlines, out of Gate 12. When we arrived, one of the waiting leaders said to me, "This is serious. We have to hurry." We walked onto a field containing thousands of creatures that were lying down. They were unusual beings with bodies of sheep and the heads of lions! He informed us that they were a rare breed of sheep that were bred so that at a certain age, they would metamorphose into lions.

He said to me, "They have been stuck in this form since November 2020. They should be lions by now. They are dying. We are going to lose them all if we can't get them through this process. What do we do?"

I said, "We have to get them on their feet. Lions must be on their feet." Then I decreed, "LIONS, TO YOUR FEET!" Immediately angels appeared, assisting the sheep/lions to their feet. Once they stood I decreed, "WIND OF GOD, BLOW UPON THESE LIONS AND BRING THEM INTO THE POWER OF THEIR TRUE IDENTITY!"

As soon as I decreed this, a wind began to blow, blowing the wool of the sheep in a way that we could see underneath it. As this happened, we could see thousands of ticks attached to each sheep; these ticks were hindering them from morphing into lions.

One of the leaders said, "I have what we need." He pulled out from his bag a horn filled with oil and gave it to a different leader, who brought it to his lips and began to blow the oil from the horn. The wind caught the oil and blew it over the entire pride, covering all the lions/sheep. This wind-blown oil killed and removed all the ticks.

As this happened, the sheep bodies began to morph into the bodies of lions. It was rather quick. During this time, another leader was singing 2 Samuel 22:30-35 over them. As he did, a deafening roar arose from the lions that literally shook the ground.

Many of the lionesses were pregnant and immediately began giving birth; and they gave birth to sheep! The sheep, however, quickly began turning into lions! The young lions began to roar, also, and the other leader kept singing the 2 Samuel 22 Scripture.

All of this continued for a while. Then the lions began making their way to the tarmac where many planes were waiting. They boarded the planes and were immediately flown throughout the nation.

As planes were departing, one of the leaders said to me, "I am so thankful you were not late. We are called to release lions, not raise sheep!"

At this point in the dream, the angel walked up to me and handed me papers. They were the flight manifest. The angel said, "Seal this manifest with your ring. This will activate mission 'RELEASE THE ROAR' over America. This is part of Father's promise of REDEEMING ALL." I did as requested and we watched as the planes filled the sky, taking these lions throughout the nation.

End of dream.

Dream Interpretation

There is more to the dream, but here are a few thoughts regarding this portion:

The American-shaped lake in which we were about to fish refers to the coming harvest of souls in America. The sheep/lions obviously represent the Church, which was adversely affected in the 2020 elections ("since November, 2020"). The maturing of many Believers into the kingly anointing of Christ (the Lion of Judah) stopped at that point, through the ensuing disappointment and hope deferred.

The "ticks," I believe, are a play on words - poli-tics/ticks. The election process, influenced by the corruption, drained the life from many Believers, causing them to disengage and give up ("lie down"). This is stunting their growth and development. If this isn't checked, it will affect them permanently.

Greg and I traveled on Radah Airlines. Radah is the Hebrew word for "rule" or "dominion." We left from Gate 12, which is a number representing government in Scripture. God was saying that we had the necessary dominion/authority to rule over the situation He was sending us to, releasing Christ's governmental authority. He has all authority on Earth (Matthew 28:18) and has delegated it to us, the Ekklesia (Church). We traveled by air, which also pictured authority in "heavenly places/heavens" (see Matthew 16:19).

The sheep/lions had to "stand" to be healed; they needed to rise up and make a stand (Ephesians 6:13-14). I was led to decree over them, "Lions (notice I called them lions, not sheep), to your feet!" Angels helped them to do so. Then I decreed, "Wind of God (Holy Spirit), blow upon these lions and bring them into the power of their true identity!" And I say this now over YOU. Arise! Release a roar from your spirit – a roar of triumph and victory!

The oil and wind obviously represent Holy Spirit. He must blow on these individuals, delivering and healing them from the blood-sucking, political fiasco that occurred. This will be facilitated by different streams of the Body of Christ working together, and by the different Ephesians 4 gifts of Christ – apostle, prophet, pastor and teacher – working together. The evangelism gift was released AFTER the healing.

We must pray and decree into this attack and reversing of development and momentum. We will do so all week here on Give Him 15. Please join me and thousands of others as we do so.

Pray with Me:

Father, we refuse to allow hope-deferred and discouragement to cripple the growth of Your people into their true identity – the army You intend them to be. Yes, we are Your people, the sheep of Your pasture; but we are also to grow into a mighty Ekklesia, moving in the authority of Lion-King Jesus, releasing His roar. You said You would roar out of Zion! (see Joel 3:16)

We decree over the Body of Christ, as You instructed in the dream, "LIONS, ON YOUR FEET! Rise up from confusion. Shake off discouragement. Trade your weariness for the strength He promised in Isaiah 40:31." And Holy Spirit, we ask You to now blow upon Your people, delivering them from this draining of life and strength. Pour Your oil on them, killing and removing these hope-sucking/life-sucking ticks.

Father, bring the Body of Christ together to release what is needed to accomplish this, especially leaders. Then, we ask You to birth the harvest. Bring forth the evangelists...bold, faith-filled, Spirit-empowered evangelists that will cover this entire nation. And do this in other nations as well. We ask for all of this in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

Our Decree:

We decree that all effects of the 2020 election on the Church are now broken – in the powerful name of Jesus. The Ekklesia will emerge as the triumphant army Christ intends them to be!
