Be Still And KNOW That I Am Your God

“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10 NKJV

Why do you worry My beloved Bride? Be still and KNOW that I am your God YHWH, I have set My word before you as solid foundation for your life as a Believer in Me your Bridegroom.

When situations arises that are overwhelming for you then it’s time for you to be still and KNOW that I am your God, you weren’t build to be the burden bearer. I Am your burden bearer lay all your cares at My feet and take on my yoke for it is light.

This life is not getting any easier but I have promised you that a thousand will fall at your side and 10 thousand at your right hand but none shall touch you because I am you God who protects you. KNOW who I Am!

When adversity comes against you, come into the light of My Presence and be still before Me, always remember that the battle is not yours by Mine. The devil has one agenda set against you and that’s to destroy you. But I am here to contend for you My beloved Bride I am your King who has placed a Blood stain banner over you.

Don’t let your way of doing things hinder My way of doing things in your life. Be still in My presence, wait patiently on Me to act. BE STILL and wait on ME

“A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.”  —Psalm 91:7 NKJV

“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; ..”Psalm 37:7

Prayer:
LORD teach me to be still and KNOW that You are God in my life. Help me to remember that Your ways are higher than my ways and Your thoughts are higher than mine. Lord I lay aside my plans and I open my hands and heart to receive Your plans for my life. I give myself to You so that You can use me to fulfill Your purpose for me in this earth.

Take me to Your Chambers LORD lead me by the hand into the light of Your Presence so I can Be Still and Know that You are my God.

The Looming War and Coming Harvest By Cindy Jacobs

The following article was just published by Cindy Jacobs of the Reformation Prayer Network and combined with thoughts from Rick Ridings of Succat Hallel in Jerusalem.

Rumors of wars seem to be a Middle East staple. Since at least 2008, Iran has been threatening to wipe Israel from the map as it works to build a nuclear program (*Jaseb). Now, an 18-month civil war has destabilized Syria, said to posses 1,000 tons of chemical weapons (*”Obama warns”).

Our region has been on the verge of war for years, but I believe the LORD has delayed the conflict. In 2009, the LORD gave me two visions in which I saw Israel’s enemies, portrayed as witches, sharks and wolves which were pushed back after intercessors cried out to God. I saw a clock, which moved back from 5 minutes before midnight to 10, then 15 minutes before midnight. (See “Prayer for Israel in a Strategic Time”, March 2012).

The purpose of the delay was to allow houses of prayer to be established throughout the Middle East. These regional intercessors will shine a light in the darkness and pull open the doors of heaven. (See “A vision of a ‘Gideon’ victory in the Middle East”, April 2012)

Since 2009, we are in relationship with five houses of prayer in Turkey, three in Lebanon, two in Egypt and two in Dubai. In Israel, in addition to the several houses of prayer in Jerusalem, we know of others established in Tel Aviv, the Galilee and the Golan. Even when God pushes the clock back, it does not stop but continues to move forward. So time has marched on. We must be like the sons of Issachar and discern the times and the seasons (1 Chronicles 12:32).

I have not had the freedom to pray against war, but neither do I sense that this will be a major, end times war such as is described in Ezekiel 37-38 or Zechariah 12-14. What I do sense developing within the next few months is more like a Psalm 83 scenario where a regional confederation menaces Israel.

In the midst of this, I’m hearing three exhortations from the LORD:

  1. Strengthen the Borders.
  2. Build Up Gaps in the Wall.
  3. Prepare for Harvest.

A Level of War for God’s Glory

A series of visions the LORD has given me over the past several years speak to that strategy of God. (See “A vision of a ‘Gideon’ victory in the Middle East”, April 2012). In a vision in February 2012, I saw that the LORD had made a protective wall of the blood of Jesus and the positioned angels with their shields and trumpets invisible to His enemies in order to lure them into a trap.

Iran, Syria and Hezbollah in Lebanon continue to threaten Israel, as do elements within Gaza and Egypt’s Sinai. Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s rants (Jaseb) almost quote Psalm 83:4 (NIV): “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,
 so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” It could be that soon, God may allow a level of war to glorify Himself in Israel and among the nations.

Strengthening the Border

In 2011, on the anniversaries of the establishment of the State of Israel and of the Six-Day War, Palestinian refugees and activists stormed the land borders of Israel. The rush was particularly thick from Syria on these nakba (Arabic for catastrophe) and naksa (Arabic for setback) days. I believe they were trial runs to test Israeli defenses.

The LORD has also highlighted to us the coastal border of Israel, the Mediterranean Sea. The new government in Egypt is allowing Iranian war ships through the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean. Most recently, Egypt refused to inspect an Iranian ship laden with weapons for Syria (Haaretz). Also, Egypt will reportedly buy two attack submarines from Germany (Miller).

Pray that the Messianic body in the Land will rise up to intercede for Israel. A major group of messianic pastors recently called for three days of fasting and prayer on September 22-24. Specifically pray Psalm 28:5-6, which in part says that the LORD will be “a source of strength to those who turn the battle at the gate.” (NIV)

Keep praying that the blood of Jesus and His angels would continue to protect the borders, praying Psalm 29:3 (NIV): “The voice of the LORD is over the waters; 
the God of glory thunders, 
the LORD thunders over the mighty waters.

Build Up the Gaps in the Walls of Protection

It is vital to fill in the voids in the walls of protection, in our own lives as well for Israel. We are told to “not let the sun go down on our wrath lest we give the devil a foothold” (Ephesians 4:26-27).

While the LORD has set watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem (Isaiah 62:6) He expects the watchmen to repair the gaps. Twice the LORD says in Ezekiel that the prophets were not doing their job of wall building. In Ezekiel 13:4-5, He says that the walls need to be repaired so they”will stand firm in the battle on the day of the LORD.” (NIV)

In Ezekiel 22:30, the LORD says He was seeking for someone to stand in the gap so that He could show the nation mercy. It doesn’t say fill the gap but stand in it, and in Hebrew it literally means to become the wall, “on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it” (NIV).

The enemy knows the importance of this, so he will try to discourage us in an effort to move us from our position. It is essential to be where God has called each of us when He calls, without envy or jealousy of when and where others may be called to stand.

Prepare for the Harvest

In the psalm, David is reaching for God’s presence, His teaching and His mercy. Appropriate to the current rumors of war David also confesses his confidence in the LORD’s protection:

The LORD is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. Psalm 27:1-3 NIV

I sense the LORD saying that He will allow the shaking of warfare and that it will bring in a harvest. So how do we prepare for this? Not by panicking or running away, nor by forcing our positioning on others. Each of us needs to be where God’s wants us to be.

We need to be listening and trusting in His timing… and waiting. David reminds us: “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” Psalm 27:14 NIV

Lisen to Rick Ridings:

Trust In The Lord


“Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. 6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday.”
—Psalms 37:3-6

Putting all your trust in the Lord takes faith to believe that when you trust in Him He is faithful bring all your desires to pass according to His will for your life.

The Word of God says that it is impossible to please Him without faith (Hebrews 11:6), and we know that faith works through love (Galatians 5:6) so if you are not walking in love which is the foundation of your Salvation, because it’s because of love Christ came. Then you can not please God.

If we can’t please Him then we can’t delight ourselves in Him and if we can’t delight ourselves in Him then we will not receive the desires of our heart.

So we have first walk in love then operate in faith, then put our complete trust in Him delighting in Him and committing our ways to Him and we shall never be put to shame and all the injustice that the enemy tries to work against us will not prevail, because the Lord will make our innocence as clear as the dawn, and the justice of our cause will shine like the noonday sun . He will NEVER fail us, so TRUST in the LORD with all your heart.

I Am The Supplier Of All Your Needs

“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

I your Heavenly Father know the things you have need of before you ask Me, those who seek the Me shall not lack any good thing.

The earth belongs to Me and everything that’s in it, every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills belongs to Me. So why is there fear of what you shall eat tomorrow, and how you shall pay your bills?

Is anything too hard for the Me? Is My hand too short to reach you where you are at and supply ALL your needs? Ask, Me and I will give it you; seek, Me and you will find Me; knock, and I will be open the door for you.

I am your God who did not spare My own Son, but I delivered Him up for you, so then why would I not also freely give you all things? I shall supply all your needs according to My riches in glory through My Son, I am able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that you could ask or think.

My divine power has given you all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of who I am. Have I not promised that if you call on Me I will answer you, so why do you doubt when you call upon Me?

I am the Creator of all things, is there anything too hard for Me? My beloved Children be anxious for nothing, but bring everything to Me in prayer, thanking Me for the answer. I am Your Heavenly Father I will hold no good think from you; it’s My pleasure to bless you with what you are indeed of and the desires of your heart. I Am the supplier of ALL your needs, all that you need is in Me.

Prayer:
May the LORD our God who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness. May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, and fulfill all of your purposes in Him in Jesus name. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, forever and EVER for He is worthy. Amen.

“For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.'” Isaiah 41:13 NKJV

Have I not promised that I will be with you holding your right hand helping you through every test and trial bringing you through it all? Then why have you allowed doubt and fear to overcome you, why have you not trusted me with your whole heart. I am your God and I have purpose good pleasures for you, I have a plan for you and it’s of good and not evil. Why do you keep leaning on your own understanding, my ways are not your ways and my thoughts are not your thoughts.

My promises to you are sure and true, I am your Heavenly Father and I only desire good for you. I am with you holding your right hand there is no need for you fear when you have the Creator of heaven and earth holding your hand, for if I am for you who can be against you? I am your God the Salvation of your life. Allow me to be God in your life, allow me to show my Power in your life let my name be glorified through your circumstances.

When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am your God and I will help you through it all. Have I not promised to never leave you or forsake you?

I am faithful to establish you and guard you, I AM YOUR GOD I will hold your right hand and you will not fear for I will help you, because I am your ever present help, I am your strong tower, I am your refuse, I am the solid rock for you to stand on. I AM YOUR GOD YHWH!

“When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.”  Isaiah 43:2

Prayer:
Thank you ABBA that you are my God and my Salvation, thank You that You are holding my right hand and knowing this I will not fear because You have promised to help me. Lord release me of any fear that keeps me from trusting You with my whole heart knowing that even though I may go through the fire of oppression the flames shall not scorch me and when I pass through the waters of great trouble I will not drown. In you only do I place my Trust LORD

Crisis Looming in the Middle East By James W. Goll

For over a decade, I have been declaring in many gatherings in many cities of the earth: “While all eyes would be on Iran, to watch Syria. Iran will pose a great threat, but the imminent danger to Israel’s security would arise out of Syria.” I have warned of chemical and biological weapons being stored up in this rogue nation and how they would attempt to export them to their puppet regime of Lebanon. I have seen this multiple times in dreams.  But I also believe that prayer changes things!

Sometimes I have grace and faith to pray that what I see does not occur. Sometimes I sense grace to intervene. Other times, like many of you, I have called forth the “Shields of the Lord to Arise” to protect Israel. At one point I called forth 91 Days of Prayer for the Homeland Prayer Initiative to protect the borders of the United States of America. Sometimes I have sensed things are “out of God’s appointed time table” and to call forth angels from heaven into the earth realm to hem in the demonic enemy. At times I sense the clock is ticking according to God’s prophetic calendar and in the midst of turmoil, His purposes are coming forth.

In the fall of 1987, an angel of the Lord visited me and declared to me times of great distress would come the Persian Gulf. In that angelic visitation when we lived in south Kansas City, MO, I was given the exact dates of both Gulf War invasions in 1991 and 2003. I was assigned by the Lord to be a “Crisis Intercessor” for the entire month of February, 1991 when there would be a “ground engagement” in the land of Iraq. I took my place and I did my part along with others around the world.

Later, I saw in the Spirit that Syria would conspire a scheme of invading the Golan Heights as things would heat up and temporarily go “out of control in the Middle East.”  Years ago the Holy Spirit spoke to me about the fall of 2012 (5773) and how things would heat up and spill over into an eruption in 2013. I have meditated on Psalm 83 where it says, “The nations will conspire to wipe Israel off the face of the earth to be remembered no more.”  I have written and spoken on Psalm 83 for the past decade. Like many of you, I have logged many personal hours over the years being up the middle to night to “watch to see what the Lord would speak.”

The Countdown to Zechariah Twelve

In January of 2004, the Lord woke me up in the middle of the night and said, Watchman, tell me, what do you see? I looked up and in a visionary experience saw a clock that was not there in the natural, hanging on the bedroom wall. The time on the clock read 11:53 p.m. and above the 12 were the letters “Zech.” The Holy Spirit then said, Watchman, tell me, what do you hear? Then suddenly the external, audible voice of the Lord came: It is the countdown to Zechariah 12.

I rested in the presence of God for a while and did not move until His manifest presence withdrew. Then I turned on the light and read Zechariah 12. It is the most amazing chapter, all about a city named Jerusalem. Let’s read a portion of it together:

The burden of the word of the Lord concerning Israel. Thus declares the Lord who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundations of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him, “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.” . . .

“In that day the Lord will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the one who is feeble among them in that day will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of the Lord before them. And . . . I will set about to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.”
Zechariah 12:1–3, 8–10

The countdown to Zechariah 12 is on. I never have stated that this would happen in the next seven minutes, seven years or even seventy years. What I do know is that God’s prophetic clock is moving toward a kairos moment when God’s plan for Jerusalem will be consummated. This is the final countdown!

God has a Road Map, and it points toward Zechariah 12:10. It is easy to identify with Zechariah 12:3 as we hear about the nations coming against Jerusalem. But read further and you will see that Zechariah 12:10 declares that God will “pour out the Spirit of grace and supplication on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and they will look upon the One whom they pierced and will mourn.” Let’s arise and pray for Israel’s destiny and that of the entire Middle East!

Romans 11 through Isaiah 53

Since that revelatory encounter those many years ago, I have pondered on the time shown on the clock—11:53. Perhaps it is something like this: Romans 11 will be fulfilled through Isaiah 53. Romans 11—“all Israel will be saved”—will be fulfilled by a revelation of the Suffering Messiah in Isaiah 53.

Romans 11:12 speaks of how the Jewish people’s rejection of their Messiah has brought salvation to the Gentiles. Paul says, “[If] their failure is riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their fulfillment be!” Romans 11:15 goes on to say, “For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?”

What do you think “life from the dead” looks like? Zechariah 14:5, 8–9 and 11 gives us a glimpse of that day:

Then the Lord, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him! . . .
And in that day living waters will flow out of Jerusalem. . . .
And the Lord will be king over all the earth; in that day the Lord will be the only one, and His name the only one. . . .

People will live in [Jerusalem], and there will no longer be a curse, for Jerusalem will dwell in security.

The Father will reward His Son, the Messiah, for His sufferings. The salvation of Israel is a key component of that reward, and the Father will not do without it. If we are going to align ourselves with the God of Israel, we are going to have to align ourselves with His covenants and His prophetic promises of the salvation of the Jews and the restoration of Jerusalem.

It is not difficult to find political analysts, historians, reporters and even theologians ready to explain their theories and share commentary on Israel’s current state of affairs. But despite the abundance of opinions and strong feelings, the future of Israel still remains a mystery to most of the world. Paul, the apostle and bond slave of the Lord Jesus Christ, did not want believers to be uninformed of this mystery or to be wise in their own estimation concerning Israel (see Romans 11:25). The Holy Spirit through Paul made a number of very clear points in Romans 11.

Despite what it may look like, Israel has not fallen so far from God that they can never return. In fact, their falling away was ordained by God as a measure of grace to us, the Gentiles. Paul said it this way: “He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit” (Galatians 3:14, niv).

The Gentiles are being embraced by the Jewish Messiah in part to make Jews jealous (see Romans 11:11). Gentiles are not “natural branches” on God’s family tree, but rather “wild olive shoots” who must recognize that they have been grafted in. God’s plan is to graft the “natural branches” into their own olive tree once again (see Romans 11:24), resulting in the reality that “all Israel will be saved” (Romans 11:26).

God Has a Grand Plan!

We must not be wise in our own estimation when it comes to Israel or be uninformed of this mystery. Romans 11:25 says that, “A partial hardening has happened to Israel until—”

Until what? Maybe you have read this verse many times. Have you realized that the word until is the key word in this passage? “A partial hardening has happened to Israel until—” That means there is a point in time when the hardening will be removed. That time is when “the fullness of the Gentiles has come in” (Romans 11:25).

What does the fullness of the Gentiles look like? Perhaps it deals in part with the day Jerusalem was released from Gentile control and restored to Israeli rule in 1967. But knowing the God that we serve, this probably does not deal only with land but with hearts as well.

What Gentile people group would, in the minds of most people, be the most unlikely to come to faith in the Jewish Messiah? Would it not be the Islamic people? What if the Holy Spirit moved powerfully upon a remnant of the Islamic people and they turned away from their false god to serve the Jewish Messiah? What if a movement of God fell upon them with the signs and wonders of an apostolic dimension, and they were grafted in as wild olive shoots to the Master’s tree? Talk about pricking the Jewish heart to jealousy!*

What I do know is God has a Road Map, and it is different from the international Quartets Road Map.  God has a grand plan and ultimately His will shall be done!
