Before listening to the prophecies below please read this short note
As I was giving this prophecy, I sensed that it was meant mainly for some ministries here in America. Also, this prophecy is mainly for those in what is commonly referred to as the five-fold ministry spoken of in Ephesians chapter 4. This is a pretty blunt word of correction for the abuses and misuses of the ministry offices. Jesus said those that I love I rebuke in Revelation. After much prayer the Lord gave me this prophecy to share with the church so that there can be a revelation of the Lords work in the Church: The beginning of the restoration of true ministry centered around Christ and His blood covenant. This prophecy is not going to apply to everyone in ministry because there are many men and women who have put Christ first in all that they do. This prophecy will apply only to those who hear it and receive the witness of the Holy Spirit in their heart saying, " yes Lord that's me, I'm sorry, restore me to true ministry. Restore the true foundation of ministry in my life which is Christ Jesus."
This prophecy is not meant to cause finger pointing or condemnation. It is meant to be a source of renewal, repentance and prayer for individuals and the church as a whole. If you know of anyone who fits this word then I urge you to pray with compassion and understanding realizing this, " There but for the grace of God go I". After listening to it, I too was made to examine my own motives for ministry and examine my own attitudes and experienced the fear of the Lord and a renewed sense of the awesome responsibility and position that others and I have been placed in as mouthpieces for the Lord.
Pray for the Church in America. Many people think that all is well in the church, but the truth is that there are many parts of the church that are sick and need healing and deliverance. I have been a Christian since 1979 and would bet that the person, work, ministry and the types and shadows of Jesus Christ have entered my ears only 20 or 30 times. I have never been in any church where Christ was the main subject for six months straight much less a whole year. Is it little wonder that the flock of the Lord are so weak and wandering away. Is it little wonder that atheism is on the rise in America. Is it little wonder that there are vast numbers of people in America who have never heard of Jesus.
When Jesus was here in the flesh, it seemed the devil was always trying to expose Jesus as the Christ and Jesus told him to be quiet. Why? I believe it is because the devil was trying to get people to recognize Christ and make him King and delay or try and prevent the cross. Today it seems to me to be just the opposite. Satan has put condemnation and shame on some ministers for preaching Christ and the covenant and being fanatical about Him and it has caused them to draw back. He has also tricked some into rarely speaking or teaching about Christ at all. Why? Because he doesn't want people to know who Christ is and the power of His resurrection today, because if people in the church ever see who Christ is and the covenant that we have through Him the world would be turned upside down once again.
The other thing the some ministries in America need prayer for is deliverance from idolatry. That may surprise you but Paul said that covetousness was as idolatry. He was not referring to a legitimate need to take care of those around us, but this unnatural desire and drive to collect money and build bigger houses and have more of everything. I have had to examine my own life over the last two years and have decided that it is the will of God to simplify. Get rid of stuff I do not use or need and that ties me down and prevents me from ministering, as the Lord wants. Anything that is not used for the purpose of promoting the gospel of Christ and the everlasting blood covenant has to go. What am I going to do with this stuff? I am going to sell it or give it away.
Our identity can no longer be tied up in things but in Him. The word says it is Christ in you the Hope of Glory. He did not say - cars in you the hope of glory or houses in you the hope of glory. He did not say big bank account in you the hope of glory, He said Christ in you. Now, do not go to the other extreme and despise things because we do need clothes, food, and a place for our children to sleep. In today’s world most of us need a car to get to work, ministry and church. God gave Adam the whole world but the world did not possess Adam until the accuser deceived Adam and Eve into wanting more than what they needed. Flee from covetousness; godliness with contentment is great gain. If the Lord should bless you with riches, be content and show compassion to the poor in the church. May the Lord Jesus reveal His glorious power and Kingdom and will to you and cause you to shine as the light of the world that he said you were.
Having said all that I hasten to add this : The Church is Destined to Overcome and Rule and Reign with Christ. No weapon formed against her shall prosper. The Rule of Christ within and from the Church will continue to grow, mature and expand until all the earth is filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord.

I'm still working on the pdf file for this prophecy, but, I'm a slow typist. I'm pretty sure I can finish before Jesus comes back, but, you never know. : ) I am also having some issues with the programming software so for now that is taking top priority. This is my first website and I've made a few mistakes in terms of programming, I will probably have to redo this whole site, which will take some time. Live and Learn ! So if you check back and see some of the pages missing don't worry it's just temporary.
I'll leave all the main material on until the day I transition to the new layout.
