Lately the Lord has been speaking to me about the power of the Word of God. When we release the Word of God it carries the anointing to break us through to our next. I know “breakthrough” can seem a bit clique at times, and its been worn out. I truly believe we are in a season of breakthrough as we get ready to step into. This is significant and necessary because we are stepping into a new era and time. Breakthrough can be defined as a sudden, dramatic important development (dictionary.com) Also, it can be an act or instance of moving through or beyond an obstacle (Merriam-Webster.com) I truly believe these definitions are what Heaven is desiring to manifest in our lives. Breakthrough is your portion.
As we move into the last few weeks of 2019, I want to encourage you that God has not forgotten you. It may seem like the opposition around you is caving in, and another year is going by without any change. There is always hope because Jesus is the hope of glory. Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5). Your night season is shifting. Another word we often use is “shift.” Shifting can be defined as changing, especially, unpredictability, take a new direction (dictionary.com). I believe the God of the breakthrough is coming to shift into a new direction. For many of you, you’re going to find yourself going in one direction, then suddenly the Lord is going to shift you and break you through to a new direction. Breakthrough is here. It’s now.
What is the word or scripture the Lord has give you for this season. It’s time to pick it back up again. Jeremiah 23:29 declares, “Does not my word burn like a fire says the Lord, Is it not like a mighty hammer that smashes a rock into pieces.” When you begin to declare and decree the word it becomes like a hammer to smash the obstacles and the stubborn places that have blocked you from moving forward. The word of God is not just words written on paper. The word of God is living and active. We have to learn to activate the word of God in our lives by releasing the word of God. When we learn to work the word it will work on our behalf. The Lord watches over His word until he sees it complete the assignment it was intended for. When we release the word the angelic is dispatched to help assist us bring the word of God forth into manifestation in our lives, ministries, and business.
When the word of God is released is carries a force behind to break the toughest and hardest walls and opposition. Ezekiel 26:9 states, “He will pound your walls with battering rams and demolish your towers with sledgehammers” The battering rams and the sledgehammers are a representation of the word of God, and the force behind it. In ancient times battering rams were a weapon used to break through the gates or walls of a besieged city or castle (britannica.com). I want you to envision writing the scripture or the prophetic word the Lord gave you for this season on the battering ram. As you begin to declare the word with the backing of heaven, the word of God like a battering ram, breaking through the gates and walls that have kept you from breakthrough to your next.
In closing, I want to share some revelations from the story of King Jehoash and the prophet Elisha. 2 Kings 13: 14-19. In this story Jehoash comes to visit Elisha on his death bed, desperate because he fears Aram. In verse 15 the prophet tells the king to grab the bow and arrows. The arrows represent the word of God, and the prophet words that have been spoken over your life. They are weapons we can use to fight back. When the enemy releases his arrows or words, we can prophesy back with the arrows of the Lord. In verse 17 the prophet tells the king to open the eastern window. It’s time to open your spiritual vision to see as the Lord sees. In the Bible the east can represent the place from which the glory or His presence is. The prophet told the king to shoot the arrow where the glory was. The prophet called the arrow, “The Lord’s arrow of victory.” The glory and His word will manifest the victory every time.
In verse 18 Elisha tells the king to grow the other arrows (word of God) and strike the ground. This was a prophetic act declaring the victory of the Lord. The king struck the ground only 3 times, and the prophet got mad at him and told him, “Why didn’t you strike the ground 6-7 times?” The king struck the ground accordingly to the measure of his faith. Striking the ground only enabled a partial victory and breakthrough. The prophet what the king to strike the ground 6-7 times to bring the total victory and breakthrough. Seven prophetically represents completion, the prophet says this in the 18th verse which prophetically represents victory. We have to stop settling for partial breakthroughs and victories. Take the arrows of the word of God, and strike the ground for the complete manifestation of victory. As you strike the ground with the arrows of the Lord, God is bringing a completion to your warfare and the season you’ve been walking through. As you step into the new, your going to walk in the manifestation of the breakthrough. A sudden act of moving beyond the obstacles that have hindered you in past season. Breakthrough is here and now. Strike the ground and release the breaker!

THE APOSTOLIC & PROPHETIC ANOINTING IS BEING RELEASED IN KENTUCKY TO UNEARTH THE HIDDEN TREASURES & UNCAP THE WELLS OF REVIVAL
I had a dream about Kentucky 3 months ago that I finally feel led to share. In the dream I was in Turlock, CA getting ready to attend a service at Harvest Church. I walked into the sanctuary before the service as the prayer team was praying for the service, and the worship team was practicing. One of the main worship leaders came up to me and began to prophesy to me that there is so much treasure to be found and discovered in Kentucky. He then turns and points to this huge map of Kentucky hanging on the wall. On the map I can see all the treasures and wells throughout KY waiting to be found and unearthed. I then began to tell my friend about the rich history of revival in Kentucky, that Kentucky is known as a revival state, and there have been some big moves of a God. But there is a greater move coming to Kentucky.
I believe me being in California in the dream is significant because California is a forerunner state. California is known for mining especially in the 1800’s because of the gold rush. This is and was a prophetic picture of what the Lord wanted to do in California. It was a prophetic picture of the glory that was getting ready to be unearthed, that caused great moves of God throughout California that touched the world. There’s another wave and move of God being released and getting ready to hit California.
This same anointing is getting ready to hit Kentucky! Just like I was at Harvest Church, harvest time is now! Yes Kentucky has had great moves of God and revivals, but the greatest revival is ready to hit. God is releasing the apostolic and prophetic anointing across Kentucky to unearth the spiritual treasures and wells. And it will be a sign in the natural that new resources and minerals will be discovered in Kentucky. This is the Isaiah 45 anointing. Isaiah 45:2-3 declares, “I will march out in front of you and level every obstacle (mountain). I will shatter to pieces bronze doors and slice through iron bars. 3I will give you hidden treasures from dark, concealed places and wealth waiting in secret sites so that you recognize me, for it is I, Yahweh, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name!”
The Lord is raising up apostolic and prophetic voices in Kentucky to break open new regions and territories that have been hard and shut off. The word of the Lord is going to come like a hammer to bust open and break the spiritual mountains (territorial spirits) into pieces that have been hindering the move of God (Jeremiah 23:29). To the places where there have been great moves of God and revival stirrings, its time to dig a little deeper. There’s greater treasure, and deeper wells to uncap.
Keys to seeing this come to pass:
1. Prophetic Worship and IntercessionProphetic and apostolic worship and intercession will be key to helping govern and sustaining the move of God across Kentucky. The Lord is looking for houses of worship and prayer that will govern and sustain the open heaven over each region.
2. Partnering With The Angelic and the Word
We must partner with the angelic, we cannot not do this on our own. As we partner with the prophetic words spoken, we release them for the angelic to war on our behalf and go get what we need. The breaker angels and angels of awakening are being released across Kentucky help break open regions that have been shut off to the things of God. The angelic have strategies from heaven to release to help build in this season.
To see this move of God in Kentucky we must come together in unity. Different streams need to cross pollinate. There needs to be forgiveness among leaders. Unforgiveness has brought division in our state. We must also deal with the racial division. As Kentucky's motto says, "United we stand divided we fall." Let's come together so we can see a great move of God come forth out of Kentucky!
Prophet Madeline James
Prophetic scribes are arising like never before in this hour. The Lord is raising up a company of prophetic scribes to release the pure word of God. The other morning I had a dream I was in my bedroom, the whole room was white. I was staring at the window next to my bedside. Suddenly I noticed a white feather lodged in the blinds. I plucked the white feather out, and noticed the stem was long and pointed at the end. During my prayer time I began to meditate on this dream, asking the Lord for more insight. Suddenly I was taken in a vision into what looked like the writing room of heaven. I found myself sitting at a white desk, in a white chair, and I had the white feather in my writing hand. It was a white scribing pen issued by heaven. As I looked around my surroundings I noticed everything in the room was white. You didn’t even need a lamp, because the glory of God illuminated the room. His tangible presence was in the room. There were angels surrounding me around the desk, and around the room. They were holding scrolls waiting for the scribes to take them, to write and release the revelations of Heaven that have not been heard upon the earth yet.
As I meditated on this dream and vision I heard the Lord say, “Here come the revelators!” A revelator is one that reveals, who especially reveals the will of God (merriam-Webster.com). When I heard the Lord speak out the revelators, I immediately thought of John the Revelator. The Lord is raising up a company of John The Revelator’s. The window with the blinds in my dream represents a new window of revelation and insight. It’s time to grab the pen and pull up the blinds, so illumination can fill the room of your heart. In Revelation 1:10-11 says, “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet say, ‘Write on a scroll what you see, and send it to the seven churches.’” Revelators write what you see.
Heaven is releasing new pens to the scribes. This is a new season of writing. Ps 45:1 declares, “My heart overflows with a good theme; I address my verses to the King. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.” These new pens will carry a greater glory, and weight as words are written from heaven. These pens were distinctly white to distinguish purity among the scribes. Where there has been mixture, those releasing false words and encounters, purity will mark the true scribes of the Lord. The Lord is assigning new scribing angels to help you write the visions and revelations. Position yourself to receive and be ready to write. What gave John the Revelator access to heaven and those amazing encounters? It was his love relationship with the Lord. The Bible records in reference to John, “One of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, was laying on his chest (John 13:23). The intimacy and the heart to heart connection with Jesus gave John access to heaven and the revelatory realm. The Lord shares His secrets with His friends. The Lord does nothing without revealing His secrets to His servants the prophets (Amos 3:7). Intimacy opens the realm of revelation.
Get ready to write like never before in this season. There a fresh grace, glory, and anointing being poured out to the revelators and scribes. Grab a hold of the pen of revelation and write the visions, dream, and revelations. These revelations will bring transformation to the Church, and those who will read them. Where there has been opposition in this season to write, the Lord is sending angelic assistance to break you through. As you release the revelations and insights, the word of Lord will be like a hammer breaking through the hard places. Here come the revelators!

From Madeline James
Recently, I had a dream concerning President Trump and his relationships with other nations in trading. We need to pray for him to have the right counsel around him and use wisdom in these trade deals. In the beginning of the dream I found myself in a massive cargo ship gliding along the ocean. The colors of the boat that stood out were red, white, and blue. Suddenly, the ship hit some type of severe turbulence causing the ship to go all the way on its right side, then quickly rotated all the way over to its left side before it went back to being upright on the ocean. When the ship was turning from side to side, everything was being turned upside down and flying around, and I didn’t know if I would survive the turbulence.
The scene shifted and I was sitting with President Trump at a table watching T.V. The news was on reporting about U. S’s trading and shipping routes and the U.S. Navy. The news showed a route in red starting off at the northwestern part of Africa all the way through the Middle East. I began to tell Trump emphatically, “Why would they show this on the news. They are giving away our position to our enemies.” Trump did not respond but stared intently at the T.V. as he was thinking about what his next move would be.
After having this dream, I woke up with a call to pray for President Trump and the United States concerning the Navy and sensitive trade deals. I believe the cargo ship represented the United States. The ship went through a severe patch of turbulence that caused everything in it to be shaken and turned upside down. The Lord is alerting his watchman to pray so this turbulence can be avoided or lessened. I sense this possible turbulence is connected to the trade deals Trump is conducting on a global level, more specifically to Muslim nations as the news depicted.
I felt led to reach out to Wanda Alger for further counsel and discovered that she had a similar dream several months ago concerning the need to pray for the President as he deals with other nations. In conferring, we believe Ezekiel 27 & 28 gives some insight to this prayer assignment for President Trump. In these two chapters the Lord chastises King Tyre for trading with nations He did not authorize. The wealth King Tyre gained through his trading caused pride to rise in his heart. We need to pray for President Trump’s heart to stay humble and tender before the Lord with wisdom to know which countries to connect and trade with.
From Wanda Alger
Several months ago, I had a dream where I was taken into a board room where President Trump was speaking. There was a discussion about some major developments that were taking place. I saw him hold up a map that had circles all over it, indicating key areas that were being targeted and needed to be considered. The President wanted me to see this and was urging me to consider the ramifications of decisions being made. Because there were no specific details indicating a particular time or event, I understood this as a call to pray for him as he is processing ongoing intelligence as Commander in Chief over this nation.
Upon hearing Madeline’s dream, I believe there is a correlation between these two dreams concerning the need to pray for President Trump as he makes decisions on a global level. The actions he is taking concerning other nations, especially his trade deals, will open or close doors in the spirit that will directly influence the United States. These are not just economic deals, but spiritual transactions with spiritual implications. The trade deals and alliances he makes with other countries will either align us with other sheep nations or compromise us with goat nations (see Matt 25:32).
In both of these dreams, it was prophetic watchmen who were given access and invited to pray for the President concerning these alignments. He needs our prayers for divine wisdom and supernatural strategies in dealing with the nations of the world. He needs prophetic insight to see beyond the natural realm in order to rightly detect any hidden agendas and motives that are counter to God’s purposes. His God-given ability to make deals and accumulate wealth must come under the Lordship of Christ and righteous rule in order to secure God’s blessing over our nation. This is a critical issue that needs prayer as President Trump considers trade agreements and international alliances.
The tossing of the ship in Madeline’s dream also brings to mind the scripture in James 1:6-8 that speaks of being tossed to and fro when one is double-minded. In Trump’s dealings with other nations, we can pray that his faith in God is secure and free from any conflicting doubts or ambitions. In my dream he was not only open to our prayers, but earnestly desired them. His invitation gives heaven the legal access to govern through him with wisdom that carries the favor and blessing of the Lord. Even in his desire to make America great economically, let us pray that he has the eyes of an eagle, an ear towards the throne, and a heart that is fully submitted to heaven’s agenda.
Over the past 3-4 months there was a sudden wind of opposition that arose against many who are stepping into the new things of God. This wind tried to stop, hinder, delay, and invoke fear to the point of succumbing to the opposition. We must realize the enemy always has a counterfeit for the things of God. If you notice, it never fails, the counterfeit tends to come right before the real unfolds. Despite the winds of opposition blowing, there's a sudden wind of breakthrough being released to break you through to the next. There will always be opposition as you cross over the threshold. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 16:9 TPT, "There's an amazing door of opportunity standing wide open for me to minister here, even though there are many who oppose and stand against me."
A couple weeks ago I was in a church service worshiping, when suddenly there was a wind that blew by me. I thought maybe someone had walked past me, but when I looked no one was there. I continued to press into worship, and again suddenly gust of wind blew by me, even blowing my hair. It was like someone had opened the door and the gust of wind was let in, but like before no one was by me. The Lord quickened my spirit, and told me the angels of breakthrough and awakening are being released in this hour. This is an hour of great angelic activity we must partner with. I prophesied this word before the church about the sudden winds of God being released, and later that day Dallas, TX had a freak storm system that produced an EF3 Tornado that had not been seen in that region in years. In the last couple weeks its been reported in different places around the U.S. of record winds. The winds of change, transition, and awakening are blowing across the land.
When we go through seasons of great opposition, it has a way of dulling our senses and spirit if we let it. We are stepping into an Isaiah 52:1-2 season. It's time to arise from the desert place, the place of testing, and shake of the dust. Put your strength and glory garments on. It's the garments of who you are in Christ. Don't let your desert place define you. It's time to awaken to destiny. Now is the time for destiny.
The last 3-4 months have been a time of great intensity and pressure. But the Lord is using the intensity and pressure to form and fashion you for your next. Many of you came into this past season looking one way, but you will come out looking different than when you entered. There is a rebranding that is taking place in the realm of the spirit as we get ready to step into 2020. To rebrand something means to present a product or organization to the public in a new way, for example by changing its name or appearance (collinsdictionary.com).
The Lord has been using the crushing and the intensity of this season to do a new thing. Diamonds don't become diamonds overnight. They have to go through a process of intense heat, different chemicals, gasses, and pressure underneath the earth before they rise to the surface for all to see their beauty. Song of Songs 8;5 TPT declares, "Who is this one? Look at her now! She arises out of her desert, clinging to her beloved. When I awakened you under the apple tree, as you were feasting upon me, I awakened your innermost being with the travail of birth as you longed for more of me." This is the season those around you will say who is that one that arises from the desert. Those close to you will not recognize you because, the Lord has released a fresh glory upon your life. The spirit of the Lord is coming to break you through to a new place.
We find an example of this in Acts 12 when Peter was imprisoned with no hope of getting out. Herod made sure Peter was heavily bound with two chains, and guarded between two guards with other guards outside the prison cell. Peter was sleeping when suddenly an angel came. Acts 12:7 TPT says,"When at once an angel of the Lord appeared, filling his prison cell with a brilliant light. The angel struck Peter on the side to awaken him to hurry up, and the chains instantly fell off." Just like the angel came to break out Peter, there is a sudden wind of breakthrough being released to come and break you into a new place. The angel told Peter to move quickly. This is not a time to drag your feet or be double minded. It's time to step into the things of God now.
Not only is there a wind of breakthrough being released, but there's a wind of awakening hitting your life.In Acts 12:7 it says the angel hit Peter in the side. Some commentaries say it's a prophetic picture of when Jesus was hit and pierced in his side. It was a prophetic picture of hearts being awakened. Where you have felt dull or unaware of the things of God awakening is being released to your heart and senses. It's time to come alive once again!
In Acts 12:8 TPT it says, "The angel told Peter to get dressed. Put on your sandals, bring your cloak, and follow me." Where this past season has tried to strip you of who you are, it's time to put on your strength and glory garments (Isa 52:1). As the angel helped Peter escaped they went to the home of Mary and her son, John Mark. They had been praying for Peter's release. Peter knocked on the door and a girl named Rhoda answered and recognized Peter. She tried to tell everyone Peter was there but they did not believe it was him, or recognize him (Acts 12:13-15). They eventually realized it was Peter, but Peter did not stay he went ahead of them.
When Peter came out of his hard season (prison) God had rebranded him. The people that were closest to him did not recognize him and his voice, and did not believe he was there. The glory had transformed Peter for his next assignment. The people didn't recognize his voice because He gained a new authority. Also notice Peter did not stay back, he went ahead to the new. Don't stay in the familiar because it's safe Not everyone can go with you to your next. Know the season you're in.
This is a time of great destiny. Now is the time to step into destiny. God has rebranded you for the for the new, for 2020. Step into it with boldness and confidence.
