As we stepped into March I felt a significant shift in the spirit realm. I believe it's a time of taking and possessing the promises of God. The Lord is calling us to slay the giants that have stood in the midst of our promises, and it's time to take down the walls of your Jericho in your life. To the Israelites Jericho seemed impossible because it was one of the most secured cities. Despite how defended and secure Jericho was the Lord told Joshua, "I have given Jericho, it's king, and its men of valor into your hands" (Joshua 6:2). The Lord gave Joshua the word, but he still had to show up to the battle.
In warfare its important to partner with the word of the Lord. God is your greatest partner and help in battle. You must guard against getting frustrated and feeling like the Lord is against you. Joshua was feeling the same way in Joshua 5:13-15, "Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a manstanding in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?” “Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.” Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord have for his servant?” It's important to have the right perspective in the midst of battle,because it can make or break you.
When you partner with the word of the Lord it brings victory. Jericho seemed impossible. It says in Jericho 6:1 says,"Now Jericho was securely shut up because of the children of Israel; none went out, and none came in." You will experience the greatest resistance right before the breaktrough. It's an intimidation tactic of the enemy. I believe in this season your movement or prophetic acts is what will bring the victory. There is a time to pray and seek, but there comes a time to possess the land. We are in a season personally and corporately of possessing the land. Boldness and courage is a must in this season. Joshua 1:6 says, "Be strong, confident and of good courage for you shall cuse this people to inherit the land which I swore to their fathers to give them." The Lord is with you every step of the way.
The Lord told Joshua to have the people march around the city for 7 days, once a day for six days then seven times on the seventh day (Joshua 6:3). The word march in the Hebrew is cabab. It means to surround, encircle, change direction, to encompass. Often times when we hear of encircling its the enemy surrounding us. In warfare we must to go on the offensive, and take it to the enemy. As the Israelties were marching around Jericho they were staking their claim and declaring their victory. I saw in the spirit each time they circled the walls they began to cut them down layer by layer. Their movement in the natural was setting in motion their victory in the spirit.
I believe two things were happening in the spirit as the people marched. Even though the Lord told the Israelites Jericho was theirs, they had to prepare their hearts to possess the promise. God takes us through a procces every time to test and refine our hearts. When the walls fell they still had a choice to make. They could've remained on the outside and never stepped into what God had given them. The second thing happening as they marched around was the word of the Lord was being applied to the walls of Jericho. Every step was a step of faith bringing down the walls.
I prophesy that your Jericho wall is coming down in this season. Partner with the word of the Lord that has been released over you, and begin to march around your Jericho. Stake your claim and declare what is yours. What has seemed impossible and immoveable is coming down. The things that have hindered you will become your stepping stones of victory into your promise.

The week going into March I sensed a significant shift beginning to take place. There were things going on in the natural as well to indiciate the shift in the spirit following Billy Graham's death, and the first two days of March had unprescendented recorded winds. One of the mornings I woke the Lord gave me a vision where I began to see the limitations, and the things that bound this person began to break off as they moved forward causing them to ascended higher.
The first couple of months of the year was a time of initmacy, refining, and recalibration. Now its time to march forward in March. The second day into March I was praying and I literally felt things began to break off of me, and I felt myself start to ascend higher. I prophesy what has held you back in past seasons is going to begin to break off as you step out in faith. There is a time to pray and cry out to God, but there comes a time where we have to shift things by our movement. There's not only power in your declaration, but in your prophetic act. Your physical movement is a picture of the movement set in motion in the spirt.
This season and this year will require great faith, boldness, and courage. This is a season to slay your giants that have stood in front of you and your promise. Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen" (TPT). The Father is looking for those who carry a now faith to pull down the things of the spirit into your now. To combat fear in this season you must walk in a now faith, let it encompass and empower you. It's important in this season to guard the foundation of your faith. Don't allow fear, doubt, unbelief, etc to undermine your faith. Hebrews 11:33-34 says, "Through faith’s power they conquered kingdoms and established true justice. Their faith fastened onto their promises and pulled them into reality! It was faith that shut the mouth of lions, put out the power of raging fire, and caused many to escape certain death by the sword. In their weakness their faith imparted power to make them strong! Faith sparked courage within them and they became mighty warriors in battle, pulling armies from another realm into battle array" (TPT). Allow faith to empower you and take down the giants that stand before you, and ascend the hill of the Lord.
Recently, there is have been a wave a jezebelic witchcraft being released against the prophetic voices rising and stepping forward. I had a dream recently where this woman came to me, and was telling me she had made three pacts with the devil against three different people. She admitted to me I was one of the people she made a contract against. I recently just came through a wave of jezebelic warfare. Jezebelic warfare wants you to bow to it's intimidation, mind control, and fear. Don't be surprised as you advance in this season the warfare you may face. Fasting and intimacy with the Lord will help you through. The warfare will always try to get you to believe that it's powers are stronger than the Lord, but it's not. Stand upon the word of God, gather people to pray with you, and don't allow the warfare to push you back. Release your roar. Roar back at the enemy when he roars at you. The righteous are as bold as a lion (Proverbs 28:1).
Too many times we get on the defensive side, instead of being on the offense. In this season refuse to partner with fear. Choose to partner with faith. It will cause you to suceed and breakthrough, Faith has a made up mind that is unshakeble. Move forward in faith, the limitations are breaking off in March.

I believe the Lord is releasing a clarion call for the watchmen to arise. It's no longer just about one or two watchmen, the Lord desires to raise up companies of watchmen. In times past there have been one or two prophets, but the season of the lone ranger prophets is over. The Lord desires to raise up companies and armies of the prophetic. No two prophets are the same, but I believe He is foucusing on the watchmen, the seer, the shamar prophets.
Recently I was spending time with the Lord and He gave me this prophetic word 2/21/18 for the watchmen, “Where are My watchmen in this hour? Where have you gone? Why have you left your post? Why will you no longer warn My people? By leaving your post you have left an access point open to the enemy to what I’ve called you to watch over. Repent and I will restore you to your post. If you choose to not repent, I will hold you accountable for the words I gave you that you did not release. Where are My watchmen who are not afraid to release the hard words? Where are My watchmen who I’ve called to watch over America? Return to your posts watchmen. Sound the alarm, and release the word of the Lord” says the Lord."
The watchman is a vital function in this hour, for the enemy desires to infiltrate families, churches, cities, and nations to wreak havoc and terror. We must sure up are defenses and borders, not just in the natural but in the spirit realm. Ezekiel 3:16-17 says, " At the end of seven days the word of the Lord came to me, saying,“Son of man, I have appointed you a watchman to the house of Israel; whenever you hear a word from My mouth, warn them from Me." The Hebrew word for watchman is tsaphah which means, to look out or about, spy, keep watch, observe. watchmen are seers. I believe the Lord is giving His watchmen fresh vision to see more clearly and further than before. You shall have eagle eyesight, to be able to see things clearly with percision in the realm of the spirit.
Some watchmen have grown weary and have sat down or left their post. They felt like they were the only one. Some got tired of releasing the hard words, because they were severely ridiculed and attacked by those they warned. Repent watchmen, and the Lord will restore you to your post. But if you refuse to warn the people of God, the Lord will hold you accountable. The Lord says in Ezekiel 3:18-19 says, "When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself." Those who refuse and disobey the Lord in warning the people of God, He will take down, and replace them with those who have a willing heart.
The job of a watchmen is not something to take lightly, or only do it when you feel like it. The Lord is returning the fear of the Lord to the Church and the land. God is raising up the shamar prophets and the watchmen to alert the people. People with either be blessed by heeding the warning, or reap disobedience for not heeding the word of the Lord. The watchmen are the first line of defense, the buffer between the enemy and the people of God, a city, or a nation.
I hear the Lord saying, "Where are My watchmen? Those who are not afraid to release the hard things? I am calling you forth for such a time as this. Your position is vital in this hour. People, churches, cities, nations are depending on you. I am strenghtening and refreshing My watchmen in this hour. Like Ezekiel I shall stregthen and harden, and cause you to be unshakeable. Take your post watchmen. Sound the alarm. Release the word of the Lord."
~Prophet Madeline James
I believe we're in a time where the Lord is wanting to mature His Body. Hebrews 5:14 says, "But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties are trained by practice to discern good and evil." In order for the Body to mature, we must start craving and partaking the meat of the word. Many are not growing and maturing learning how to discern spiritual matters, because they want to stay on the milk of the word. Beloved you cannot fully develop properly just driking the milk. There is no depth without the meat of His word.
A few months ago, I had a dream where many leaders in the body were serving contaminated meat, making themselves and many in the body sick. Recently, I had a dream where I had taken a group of people to sit down and eat. In the middle of the table a baby in a carrier was placed. I was sitting at the front of the table and watched as the people begain to eat the steak served. One of them got up from the table and spit out the steak in a metal pitcher because, they didn't like the taste. The next person got up and began to gag and choke on the meat, and coughed it up and spit it out. A third person got up from the table and began to spit out the meat, but suddenly choked because they had not fully chewed the meat and the hiemlich had to be performed.
As I began to pray about the meaning of the dream, I began to hear the Lord say many are not growing in the Body because they are choking or rejecting the hard words being released in this hour. Many are rejecting the words of the apostles and prophets causing them to remain at the same level. It reminds me of when Paul had to address the Corinthian Church in 1 Corinthians 3:1-3, "Brothers, I could not talk to you as spiritual people, but as fleshly people, as infants in Christ. I fed you milk, not solid food, because you were unable to take it. Indeed, you are still not able, even now, for you are still of the flesh. While there is jealousy and rivalry among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving in an ordinary human way?" The Greek word for milk in this passage is gala meaning basic elementry teachings. The Greek word for meat in this scripture is broma meaning more solid, complete and deeper spiritual doctrines.
When we remain at the basic or milk level our canality still runs wild. Even Paul told the Corinthians because I haven't been able to feed you meat, you are still acting carnal with jealousy and rivalry. Beloved when will we grow up in the Body? It's time to put away childish ways. 1 Corinthians 13:11 Paul says, "When I was a child I talked like a child, I thought like a child, When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me." You see when you remain a child there's not much accountabilty or responsibilty to worry about. Many want to stay infants in the Body because they don't want to take responsibilty for their relationship with the Lord, they put it on others.
God is calling His people to arise and mature in this hour. It's time to put away childish ways and mindsets, and move from carnality to maturity. The times are getting darker and more intense. Those who stay on the milk and refuse to grow will be swept away. But those who partake of the meat will mature and will not be shaken. Beloved you have a choice to make. Will you remain in spiritual infancy and continue to reject the meat of the Word? Or will you choose to mature and grow in spiritual matters of the Word?
~Prophet Madeline James
I believe we're coming into a time where there will be a great divide, and exposing. The Lord is bringing a cleansing and seperating to His Church. He's purifying His Bride in this hour. With purification comes exposure. God is exposing the motives of those in ministry and those around you. Everyone that says, "Lord, Lord" doesn't always know Him. There is a hunger for the supernatural. Many are tapping into ungodly sources of the supernatural, causing them to entertain the demonic. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 says, "But I'm not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that is servantd also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness." Beloved we must be more discerning, and not so gulible. 1 John 4:1 declares, " Dear friends, don't believe every, spirit, but test the spirits to whether they are from God, because many false prophests have gone into the world. There are those in ministry, and some in the mainstream ministry that profess Jesus and operate in the supernatural, but their heart is far from the Lord.
In a recent dream, I was sitting in a living room watching television, a minister of a big church was on the television preaching. In the room with me was a known prophet and another person. The prophet began to tell me about this minister on the television, what others didn't know and realize about the minister. The prophet began to say many years ago this minister used to run the streets. The minister sold drugs and murdered people. The minister was eventually put in jail to serve time for the crimes they committed. During that time the minister came to know the Lord, but never fully went through deliverance. After serving jail time the minister went into full time ministry. They grew a successful ministry by worldly standards. What people called anointing was really charisma. This minister was tapping into the spirt realm with the same spirits that used to help them run the streets and murder. The minister was spiritually assassinating people in the spirit realm and people didnt realize it. People loved this minister and would drive to seem them, and run to the altar to get prayed over by this minister. When the minister would pray over people the minister would release a perverted anointing/transfer on their life. The prophet speaking to me was telling me many in ministry and in the spotlight were not pure,and accessing the spiritual realm through ungodly means.
Deuteronomy 13:1-5 says, "If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, 2 and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ 3 you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the Lord your God is testing you to find out if you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 You shall follow the Lord your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him. 5 But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has counseled rebellion against the Lord your God who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, to seduce you from the way in which the Lord your God commanded you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from among you."
Jeremiah 23:10-12 says, "For the land is full of adulterers; For the land mourns because of the curse. The pastures of the wilderness have dried up. Their course also is evil And their might is not right. 11 “For both prophet and priest are polluted; Even in My house I have found their wickedness,” declares theLord. 12 “Therefore their way will be like slippery paths to them,
They will be driven away into the gloom and fall down in it.
Exposure is coming to the Body of Christ. God doesn't expose to bring embarassment, but to those who are unrepentent and continue to walk in impure ways. The Lord is tired of His sheep being used, abused, and decieved. Matthew 7:15-16, says, "15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. We must learn to become fruit inspectors. We become fruit inspectors but knowing the Word of God. Beloved we cannot afford to be ignorant of the devil and his devices. Many have become so enamored with the prophetic and supernatural they've thrown the Word of God out. The Word of God should always be the standard. The Word helps us to divide the false and the true. God is going to begin to expose the false in this hour, Many will be surpised who will be revealed as false. Discernment is needed in this hour more than ever.

As I was recently praying and asking the Lord what he was speaking, I heard Him say, "On earth as it is in heaven." We've often heard the phrase, "On earth as it is in heaven," but do we really understand or grasp the importance of what Jesus was saying? In Matthew 6:9-14, Jesus was teaching the disciples to pray and how to access heaven. You see for things to be on earth as it is in heaven, you have to know what heaven looks like and what is sounds like. The Father wants to give you a spiritual picture or vision of your life, family, city, region, state, nation, etc. Heaven is the protoype for what things should look like on earth. Many are building things heaven has not sanctioned. There are scrolls written in heaven waiting to be accessed and implemented here on earth.
In Matthew 6:10, in the first part of the verse it says, "Your Kingdom come your will be done." The greek word for kingdom in that passage means dominion, ruling authority. Often times we don't see His ruling authority because we fail to implement it. When Jesus died on the cross, he took back all authority and dominion, and gave us the keys to the kingdom. Matthew 16:19 declares, "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven." The keys Jesus gave us, gives us access and authority to operate and move in the realms of the spirit. To bind something means, to forbid, prohibit, declare to be illicit, to tie up. To loose means to undo, dissolve, to declare unlawful, to destroy, to overthrow. Wow what a powerful responsibilty the Lord has entrusted to us. How often do we truly walk in this? There are many things hanging in the balance in the heavenlies, waiting to be loosed.
We often fail to see the maniestation of heaven, because we don't bring it on earth. The next part of your kingdom come is, your will be done. The greek word for will is what God wishes to be done by us. To know the will of God, or know His heart you must spend time with Him. Jesus would often sneak away and spend time with the Father, where He would reveal to Jesus what he desired. Jesus said, I can do nothing by myself, I only do what I see my Father doing" (John 5:19). There is a partnership needed with the Lord to release heaven on earth. Once the Father shows you what He desires, He will empower you and authorize you to do it. In the last part of Matthew 6:10 where it says your will be done, the greek word means to come into existence.
For this things to come into existence we must decree and delcare heaven's desires. Job 22:28 says, "You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you. The word decree means to make an offical statement that something must happen (dictionary.com). When you begin to declare the word of the Lord it supercedes all other other authority. It's apart of the now faith talked about in Hebews 11:1. To declare means to announce or prepare the way like John the Baptist did for Jesus. When we begin to declare the Kingdom on earth we prepare the way and make room, for the fullness of God to come and manifest.
Don't allow the enemy to steal your voice. You have been authorized to release the Kingdom. Partner with the Lord to release Heaven on earth whereever you go.
Prophet Madeline James
From the beginng we were called to reign and have dominion in the earth. Along the way we lost our dominion, but Jesus came back and restored us to our rightful place. Did you know we have been made to sit in heavenly places next to our Father? Ephesians 2:6 declares, "He raised us up with Christ the exalted One, and we ascended with him into glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ" (TPT). We have been given access to live in a higher realm, but often times live below what we've been called to.
What is wisdom? Wisdom is supernatural intelliengence. It's having access into the mind of God, and thinking the way He thinks. Wisdom helps us to rightfully apply the revelations we discover.
Wisdom is Jesus. 1 Corinthians 1:30 says, "God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom." Wisdom has been since the beginning of time, Proverbs 8:22-23 says, "In the beginning I was there, for God possessed me even before he created the universe. From eternity past I was set in place, before the world began, I was anointed from the beginning." Jesus is wisdom, and the gateway through which we obtain access to wisdom. If the Lord himself used wisdom to create the universe, how much more do we need wisdom to build and rule over what God has given us?
As I was seeking the Lord for 2018, I heard Him say, "Wisdom will cause you to regin in 2018." Many people are driven and led by amibition, instead of being led by the wisdom of the Lord. Ambition is an earnest desire for some type of achievement or distinction, as power, honor, fame, or wealth, and the willngness to strive for its attainment (dictionary.com). Many in this hour have been building their ministries and "kingdoms" with ambition. Ambition is fleeting. Wisdom is eternal. As the people of God we need to build with His wisdom. Many peope desire the platform instead of the wisdom needed to maintain the platform.
The Lord wants you to prosper in life. But many times we fail to prosper because we're not seeking for His wisdom or insight. We tend to lean to much on our own knowledge. Jesus propsered because he only did what he saw the Father doing. It's important we learn how to come into his council and recieve his instruction. In 2 Chronicles 1:7-12 is the story of the Lord appearing to Solomon, and He asked Solomon what he desired. Solomon asked the Lord for wisdom and knowledge to govern the people. Because Solomon's heart was pure the Lord not only gave him wisdom and knowledge, but wealth, possessions, and honor that no other king has had in the earth. Solomon was not just asking for wisdom, he was asking for the Kingdom. And because he saught the Kingdom (Matt 6:33).
Wisdom will crown you with favor and glory, that will cause you to reign. God doesn't want you to survive or just maintain in life. He wants you to reign in life. The definition of reign is royal authority, the dominion, influence of one resembling a monarch, one who wears the crown (merriam-webster.com). His wisdom will give you the authority to govern well what you have been entrusted, and what He has called you to build in 2018. Don't strive to be seen or self promote, allow wisdom to lift you up. Proverbs 4:8-9 says, "Wisdom will exalt you when you exalt her truth she will lead you to honor and favor when you live by her insights. You will be adorned with beauty and grace, and wisdom's glory will wrap itself around you making you victorious in the race." The humble know they are nothing without the Lord, and seek His wisdom. Seek after His wisdom this year. His wisdom will crown you and cause you to reign in 2018.

As I was praying about 2018 this is what I heard the Lord say:
Before you go into 2018 you must shut the door to 2017. Stop looking back, stop looking over your shoulders it is finished. This season, this era is over says the Lord. I’m starting a new chapter and era in your life and in the body of Christ.
For the Lord says I am truly doing a new thing in your life and in your heart. You’ve heard it said many times the new thing is coming, but I say to you it is here. It’s time to step over the threshold through the door. For this past season was about your heart says the Lord. I had to deal with and expose the issues of your heart, so that you can fully embrace what I’m about to do in 2018. 2017 was a year of great contending but 2018 will be a year of great reward says the Lord. I’m enlarging you far and wide. You shall recover all!
I truly beleive the warfare many of you faced 2017, was the enemy trying to stop you from entering into this new era in your life. This new era will mark and set the course of your life for the next 10-15 years. An era can be defined as, a long and distinct period of time with a particular feauture or characteristic (dictionary.com). What marked you in this past season, will not mark you in this new season. I had a dream a couple weeks ago, and a prophet in the dream was stitching me a new cloak/mantle with this huge angel feather stitched down the front. I heard the Lord say for those who passed the test, would be mantled anew in this new season. There were some causalties in this past season but don't look back, keep moving forward. I believe the symbol the Lord puts on your new mantle is what will mark you in this new era.
This new cloak reminded me of the story of Joshua in Zechariah 3:3-7:
Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then he said to Joshua, “See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you.” Then I said, “Put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the Lord stood by. The angel of the Lord gave this charge to Joshua: “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here."
For some of you, your garments were mudied with hurt, offense, sin, the warfare you endured, etc. In this new season your garments have been changed to match where the Lord is taking you. Your new mantle carries a greater authority than past seasons. Everything you need to carry out what God has called you to in this season, has been woven and placed in your mantle.
2017 was a year of great shifting in relationships and alignments. We must remember not eveyone is called to go with us the whole way. Most of the time people are placed in our lives for a season. During this time the Lord also exposed many Judas', Aboslom's, and those who did not have your best interest at heart. This exposure will continue into 2018. It's important to know who labors among you, because there are demonic assignments being sent, and partnering with those who have offense. These assignments are being sent to sabotoge you, shut you down, or take you out. Don't fear. Keep your heart clean (Ps 51), bless those who persecute you, and God will be your vindication. He's promoting the humble, and demoting the prideful.
2018 will be your season of enlargement and expansion. As much as your faith is willing to see and stretch for, the Lord will do it. What is in your heart Beloved? That is what the Lord is asking you. 2018 is the year of walking in your prophetic promises and dreams. Many may feel its impossible because 2017 was a year of great loss and barreness. But I say to you today, "Sing O Barren woman for you will no longer be barren" (Isaiah 54). 2017 Was a year of great contending, but 2018 will be a year of great reward. You shall recover all!
I'm reminded of the battle of Ziklag in 1 Samuel 30. The Hebrew meaning of the word Ziklag has two components. One meaning of the word is measure pressed down, the other is to pour out (abarim-publications.com). How many of you felt pressed down and poured out in 2017? But its pressing that has produced the oil/the anointing for your next season.
One of King David's lowest points occured when the city of Ziklag was overtaken and burnt to the ground. All that he owned and all that was precious to him, had been lost or captured. 1 Samuel 30:6 says, "And David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the people were bitter in soul, each for his sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord. Many of you in this past season have had to learn how to strengthen yourself in the Lord in a greater measure than ever before. Then in 1 Samuel 30:8 David inquired of the Lord, “Should I chase after this band of raiders? Will I catch them?”And the Lord told him, “Yes, go after them. You will surely recover everything that was taken from you!”
In 2018 I hear the Lord saying, "It's time to go up and recover, for you shall recover all that was taken and more. Enlarge your tents. For the days of staying small are over. This is your season of enlargment and expansion. As John Eckhardt has prophesied this year, you can't stay small in the glory. "The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the Lord; in its time I will do this swiftly."

Recently I was in a time of prayer, and the Lord took me up in an inner vision. I was in the throne room of heaven. The Lord’s chair was off to my left, I could see His arm resting on the chair. It was the most beautiful chair, it was red and gold and radiated with glory. I saw the river of God around the throne, it shimmered and reflected His glory. Everything in the throne room shimmered with glory.
I saw myself standing near the river of God, and fire was placed in both my hands. It did not consume my hands but hovered over them. And then a fire was set at my feet that covered most of my body. It reminded me of the prophet Jeremiah when he said, “But if I say I'll never mention the LORD or speak in his name, his word burns in my heart like a fire. It's like a fire in my bones! I am worn out trying to hold it in! I can't do it” (Jeremiah 20:9). My attention was then turned to the River of God. I saw myself coming up out of the river riding on the back of a serephim. I heard the Lord say, “I’m releasing My firebirds.”
I believe in this hour, the Lord is releasing a new breed of prophets that will carry His fire and glory, because they have been baptized in fire. A baptism represents the old fading (religion), and the new coming forth. Fire was placed in both my hands. There is an equal portion being given out to those who are willing to be baptized and consumed by His fire.God is sending His prophets who have been commissioned from the throne room.
This vision reminds me of the encounter the prophet Isaiah had when the Lord commissioned Him in Isaiah 6:1-8.
"In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. 2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called out to another and said,“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory.”4 And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the [c]temple was filling with smoke. 5 Then I said,“Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I live among a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.”6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. 7 He touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven. 8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
The word seraphim in the Hebew is translated into burning one. I believe the Lord is releasing His prophets that have had the coal touch their lips. There lips (words) and hearts have been purifed by the fire of Heaven. There have been many prophets that have been sanctioned and commissioned by man and not by God. But there is a great distinguishing coming between throne room prophets and man made prophets. Many have operated in a form of godliness but have lacked the true power of God (2 Timothy 3:5). The firey ones God is releasing in this hour will set the world on fire with the word of the Lord that is bring in their hearts. "Here come My firebirds" says the Lord!

I was recently watching a worship video from the Upper Room Dallas, and I was astonished to see much of the church was made up of millennials. The Lord began to speak to me and tell me, "The Church needs to prepare, the millennials are coming." Many say the millennial generation is the most unchurched generation. The millennials are carrying revolution. They are coming to break the religious systems and structures in the Church, because they are presence driven. They want to know and experience the real thing. Millennials will be the face of the Church in the years to come.
As I saw this influx of millennials coming to the Body of Christ, I saw the Lord begin to heal and restore the identity of the millennials. The world has tried to strip them of identity and gender, and tell them what they should be, The Church has been silent and judgmental on this issue. The millennials are longing for idenity. Where there has been a lack of identity, broken sexuality, and confusion, there is going to be a massive move of God to heal broken sexuality and identity as they encounter the love of the Father. I see purity movements being birthed from this move that will impact a generation.
The millennials will lead the way. They religious will say they are undignified and don't fit the model of the church, but the Lord's power will rest on those who are undignified for Him. Many revivals will break out accross the nation in colleges and universities as millennials gather to meet for Bible Studies that will turn into glory meeting. I see millennials partnering with spiritual fathers and mothers to plant revival houses and hubs.
There is a new breed of millennial aposles, prophets, teachers, pastors, and evangelists. The Father is looking for spiritual mothers and fathers to partner will the millennials. Malachi 4:6 says, "He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse." There is a power and a synergy that will be released as they learn to work together. The Lord is raising up a new breed of millennials that will walk in the 5-fold offices. Here come the millennials!
