Bill Yount: Inside The Prayer Closet

Bill Yount: Inside The Prayer Closet

14 Jun 2013

Have you ever felt like quitting? Aren’t you glad that Jesus never quit? Quitters never win! Winners never quit!

A mother’s prayers are powerful, but oh, the power of a grandmother’s prayers! Grandmothers not only spoil their grandchildren; they spoil the enemy’s plans for them as well. I saw bloodhounds from Heaven being released to pursue this third generation. I saw grandmothers pleading the blood of Jesus over their grandchildren and these bloodhounds were picking up the scent of that blood as they began to outrun and overtake these young ones at every turn. There was no more hiding place for them.

At age seven I was miraculously healed of a brain tumor in Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. The tumor surgery had to be cancelled. After all these years the Lord recently opened the door to that hospital to pray for people with brain injuries. I am discovering something. Where the devil wants to kill you is often the place where God wants to use you.

‘Angelic’ doctors and nurses are being released upon the earth this hour…you may want to get a second opinion. The nurse’s name was Peggy. She came during many long nights to sing hymns to a dear friend of mine while he was in the hospital in critical condition. Later, he wanted to personally thank her for her encouragement and kindness. Upon asking the hospital staff and the other nurses on that floor, they responded, “Oh, she is that ‘traveling’ nurse. We don’t know where she comes from or where she goes!

A lion roared inside our mothers’ wombs. “I have called you to be a prophet to the nations.” Think of it. God calls us to be a prophet to the nations. Nothing in me to this day can get a handle on that. This awesome thought puts me into a fetal position from the start. Most of my life has been uneasy with this call. Who am I that a King would bleed and die for and think of me in this way. Revelation like lightning flashes before me at times, but not on most days. And yet on my worst days the call rings true blue. It’s who God says I am.

When you know what God has called you to do, nothing can stop you but yourself. I still never quite get used to ministering to people or typing out a message. But the butterflies are fewer. My knees are not so weak. The call of God reminds me: I can do this. This is what I was born for. And the greater One is in me. The roar of an untamed lion is in our call.

For many years I had doubted the call of God on my life. Until the day an apostle spoke over me. “Bill, it’s not your fault that you’re a prophet. But you have to walk in it.” Don’t apologize for the call of God on your life either. It’s not your fault. Walk in it and let the lion roar!

Intercessory Alert


A lot of rhetoric is going on as North Korea’s spoiled son now leads the country. Rumors of nukes being fired and the revving up of an old nuclear reactor have much of the world worried. Joel Rosenberg’s book “Dead Heat” may very shortly coming to pass if we do not get this right. The United States can ill afford to read the signals wrong and we need intercessors on the wall on high alert. It is not easy to bend ones knee and seek the face of the Lord but one needs perseverance and a willing heart to watch and seriously pray and intercede. If the church would truly learn to do so it could avert much of what may shortly come to pass. Alas, many are busy about much and not busy about their Fathers business.

The Lord has such love for us and wants to help us to do His will in the earth as it is in heaven. We cannot walk out our salvation alone but need Him each moment of every day to lead, guide and direct our lives. Jesus is the answer! The only answer to mans dilemma. Sin is rampant and Jesus is the only one that can eradicate sin. He is the only one that can truly change human nature and bring to death that old man. Ceasing to sin is not possible in ourselves but when Christ truly lives in a man or woman and they allow Him to be Lord it brings forth lasting change.

Let us as the church cry out to the Lord. Let us take time in the secret place to hear His voice. Let us walk with our Father and not stop crying out day and night till we see change. The Lord puts in leaders and scripture says He removes them too. This is definitely being allowed by the Lord but how America and the world handle it is going to determine the outcome.

How we as the church take our position in the body as intercessors and pray through will determine our future. Let us life up our voices and cry out to the Lord and repent of our sin and then we will hear from heaven and He will heal our land. A spirit of repentance needs to fall on each one from the least to the greatest and the church needs to walk as it did in the beginning. We need pure hearts to truly intercede and bring forth change. Today we are being challenged to come up higher and allow Father God to do a lasting work in our lives. None of this worldly stuff matters at all and for myself in fifty years none of this will be remembered.

What will count is what one does with the prayer needs that cross our path. Will we say, another will pray or will we take up our cross, deny ourselves and come to the place of being the intercessors the Lord wants us to be. The choice is ours. Will we stand as the body of Christ together and be light in this ever darkening world. Will we let our light shine before men and glorify our Father in Heaven. Let us change history by how we respond to the call of the Lord to watch and pray. Pray for our Nations leaders that they come to know the Lord and bend their knee before Almighty God. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much and much can be delayed, lives spared and demonic acts averted by our intercession. The gates of hell will not prevail against us.

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

Weeping Endures For A Night




It is important that we are not distracted from that which Father has called us to do. When He has called you to pray and intercede it is important that you continue to do so. The battle is on and the enemy is trying to distract God’s people with much havoc in everyday life. Many are going through large battles at this present time. It seems that there is extreme pressure being brought to bear upon many who belong to the Lord and it is time that we come to terms with the truth that grace is only given as each new day arrives. We are told not to think of tomorrow because today has sufficient evil.

We see this is so true as this past week’s events have unfolded in the terrible massacre of innocent little children as well as adults in the quiet town of Newtown, Connecticut. One cannot wrap their mind around the evil that has occurred and we truly need to hold on to Jesus and reach out to others. We need to be a comfort in this time of deep wounding that has struck into the heart of the nation. Not only America has been touched by this senseless act but we across the border in Canada have wept tears of sorrow with you and are praying.

It is time for us to come together as one body and lift our voices heavenward to the Lord who is the God of all comfort. Truly there is no other place to turn to at a time like this. We have to move forward and at the same time grieve the loss of precious lives.

What is our part in protecting our respective nations. We are told to watch and pray and so we must continue to do so. Also to walk in love toward those that are outside and redeem the time because the days are evil. I am weeping in writing this for truly any innocence left in the nation is gone. Yet, we as precious believers must lead as light and truth and let our light shine in the darkness of this world. Jesus said, 14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Matt. 5:14 (NKJV)

This morning I was reminded that we must live one day at a time and that grace is there for this day alone. Manna in the wilderness was provided one day at a time and we to must daily feed on the Word of God for help and strength in this time of trouble. Let us love one another with a pure heart and be willing to reach out to others during this difficult season that has affected so many lives. Weeping endures for a night but joy comes in the morning. Let us pray that through these circumstances those that do not know Jesus come to know Him as their Saviour and Lord. Indeed He is their help in this time of trouble.

Let us continue to be on guard, watch and pray for that which the Lord lays on our heart and take time to hear His still small voice asking Father God to order our steps for each new day.

Let us pray Psalm 91 over our homes, families and nations and continue without doubt to TRUST IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

Your Victory is Assured

Your Victory is Assured


Many in the body of Christ are walking in discouragement this morning because of hard times.  You have not yet seen the answers to many of the prayers you have prayed and the enemy has tried to come in like a flood with his lies.  Now is the time, this very moment to decide that you will walk in victory.  You are not defeated!  You are a people of God that are called by His name, for His purposes and for this time.  Much is yet to be done to see the Kingdom of God come forth and fully manifest in the earth. 

Many are suffering and you will be used to alleviate much of that suffering with that which I have put in your hands. You have been given much and have the ability to help in the little things of daily life that make a big difference.  Perhaps it is a word in season to someone that lifts their spirit.  Perhaps it is just being a good listener.  Ask Me how I can use you!  You will see open doors and in ministering to others you will not be thinking of your own needs.


I will supply as you praise My holy name and reach out to others.  I am Lord of All and have all things in My hands.  I know what is going on in this world and you are not to fear but walk in faith and wait on Me.  Yes, My Beloveds take time to wait on Me.  Many of you are finding it hard to be still.  Many of you are fearing the future but I say to you I am your future and hope.  Do not be discouraged but take hold of My Word and dig into it without laziness and you will find your answers.  Submit to one another in the fear of God and do not let go.  Esteem your brothers and sisters highly in the Lord and see their heart.  Break bread together and remember the price I paid on the cross till I come.  The Day of the Lord is at hand.  Serve Me diligently and you will see me move. 

4 because everything which has God as its Father overcomes the world. And this is what victoriously overcomes the world: our trust.(CJB)

In Response to a Recent Comment

First and foremost it is a loving relationship with Christ and a servants heart that is important in a prophets life. Walking in loving relationships also with our brothers and sisters in Christ is vital for we do not walk alone and are NOT lone rangers. The gifts within us do not belong to us and we cannot refer to them as MY GIFT. They belong to the Lord and are operated at all times through Holy Spirit who flows through us.

This is being written after a recent comment received but felt led not to post, as my spirit was not in agreement with all of it. Also I did not want to embarrass the person who had written it. I do however so appreciate them posting and sharing their heart. We are however, ALL in need of teaching in this journey. It is not about what we feel but what the Lord reveals to us. He can often give us an impression of something to come and we do feel that weight in our spirit, however it is not by our feelings but our faith and what the Holy Spirit impresses on our heart for His purposes.

He reveals things to us for us to pray for and not for us to be right about something. He must increase and we must decrease. Father God does show us things along the way to also confirm that we are hearing His voice but let me say equivocally that God does not give us daily lottery numbers. This is contrary to the Word of God. We do need to discern what spirit we are tapping into if we are hearing this. God is NOT in the business of giving us two out of three of the daily numbers as someone suggested.

Also we do need to care about what others think as it is NOT about our gift and in the multitude of counsellors there is safety. It is my suggestion to this person that they take time to sit down with this one in their family that is suggesting their gift is not from the Lord and hear them out. Perhaps they do have some constructive things to share with you and you need to be teachable and hear them. We are told to try every spirit and it is wisdom to do so. You may very well have a prophetic gift but it must be honed sharp by the Word of God. God timing is everything. It is NOT you who bring the gift public but God who is the giver of the prophetic gift says a man’s gift makes room for him.

It is God in His timing after doing a deep work in your life that decides when one is ready to be ordained into the office of the prophet. Yes, we do need much training along the way and God will put those of like precious faith on your path to help you mature in the faith. Others (apostles, prophets in the body of Christ will see the work the Holy Spirit has done in your heart and recognize a true gift from God and His timing for you to be released. So…it is not about us but all about Jesus and we so need the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. The unction of the Holy Ghost in our prophesying ensures that the gift of God in us is stirred up so that we can know that we are hearing from Him. This needs to be said in love as one can err because of their lack of knowledge of the scriptures.

16 A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men. Proverbs 18:16

Let me encourage you to continue to seek Him.  It is not about the gift but the giver of the gift and your relationship with Him that will one day move you forward in your calling.

Your Prayers Can Change History

The 2012 Presidential Election will be a deciding factor on the course of the United States of America. Let us be praying up until the polls close that the Lord will have His way and have mercy on the United States.  Be prayerful about your vote and take some time with Father God to hear Him.  It is the most important election in U.S. history and America is standing in the balance.  We are admonished to pray for those in authority over us that we might live a quiet, peaceful and Godly life.  Let each one be a tool in God’s hands and trust that as we do our part, God will have His way even in the storms of everyday life.
Continue to pray for those also who are going through great difficulty after Sandy and are still without power and the necessities of everyday life and that homes be found quickly for these people. It is at times like this that a Nation needs to come together and those in authority need to step up to the plate and serve.  The people of Staten Island and Hoboken, N.J. have been crying out for help and our hearts go out to them.  We pray that they and all affected have a speedy recovery.  JESUS IS THE ONLY ANSWER TO THE STORMS OF LIFE SO LET US BE QUICK TO CALL ON HIS NAME!
2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Tim. 2:1-4

Hurricane Sandy

Scripture tells us to watch and pray and that the fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.There is great power in prayer and it changes situations and Nations.  Let us believe the Lord together for His hand to move in the US as hurricane Sandy comes ashore and that it will NOT cause great destruction.  Also for divine protection over God’s children and that all fear be removed. We can move the hand of God IF we pray. Let us pray that people will call on the name of the Lord during this time and see that He (Jesus) is real. We know that Father God uses circumstances to draw men and women to himself.  We ask Jesus that the enemy would not have his way but that you somehow get praise and glory out of this situation, in Jesus name.

Marriage, One Man, One Woman

Marriage, One Man, One Woman
The church has struggled much on standing up for biblical truth and defending it. The scriptures tells us you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in the contest against sin. Heb. 12:4 (CJB) Jesus was hated and hung on the cross because men could not bear the truth that He spoke and because God had a plan to redeem mankind.  Many times they tried to kill Him and yet until the appointed time He was able to walk through the crowd and out of harm’s way. At the appointed time He laid down His life with sacrificial love for all mankind.
Standing as a believer is something that we cannot do in our own strength.  A line is being drawn in the sand where we are having to decide whose side we are on.  Will we stand wholeheartedly for the Word of God amid the storms that are raising their ugly head?  Issues are coming up where we are being challenged to come to a new level of faith and commitment.  Will we keep silent or will we speak the truth in love, calling sin as the Word of God calls it?
In the United States we have heard of the battle over righteousness in believing that marriage is between one man and one woman.  Canada’s laws  have already been changed and many have chosen the path that they will follow. How did this very basic fundamental truth about marriage that is basic to our survival as a people come under such erosion by the enemy?  How is it that man cannot see and know that a man and woman made in the image of God were created to marry and procreate and that no other two species except male and female can bring the fruit of the womb.  
27 So God created humankind in his own image; in the image of God he created him: male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them: God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the air and every living creature that crawls on the earth.” Genesis 1:27 (CJB)
Men are calling good evil and evil good.  As it was in the days of Noah so it will be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man.  The Lord spoke about the condition of men’s hearts then and they are the same today.   He is not willing that any should perish but all should come to the truth.  His love for mankind took Him to the cross where He suffered, died and rose again that we might be set free from our sin and that we might come to know Him. 
One day all will give an account of how they lived there lives here on this earth.  Were we holy as He is Holy?  Did we walk in truth and righteousness?  Did we speak the truth in love and stand as that watchman on the wall who was called to speak so that the blood of another would not be on his hands? 
Have you spoken when it is uncomfortable, unpopular and would cost you something dear.  Have you dared to speak the whole counsel when led of the Holy Spirit to do so?  We are living in times like the days of Noah, eating, drinking, getting married and going about business as usual.
We need to take a stand now for what we believe.  Daily the rights of those of precious faith are under attack.  Let Christ in you arise and be fortified in His Word.  We are told that the day will come when all will hate you and we do not like to think about this.  One can feel the spiritual climate changing daily and we need to guard our relationship with Jesus. We are to love the sinner, pray for them, but come out from among them and be separate.  It is only as you live a separated life that you will  have eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the church. 
Recently in sharing that someone was getting married, a person asked the question, “to a man or woman”, in jesting.  This shows how the truth of God’s word has been rejected to suit the sin of man rather than man allowing God to move on His heart that He might follow Jesus. Taking up our cross daily and following Him is becoming increasingly difficult and unpopular. Yet there is no option for the true follower of Christ.  Let us be willing to daily take up our cross and follow Jesus. 
The word of Adonai came to me: “Human being, speak to your people; say to them, ‘Suppose I bring the sword on a country, and the people of that country take one of their men and appoint him their watchman. Now if, upon seeing the sword coming against that country, he blows the shofar and warns the people; then, if the sword comes and takes away someone who heard the sound of the shofar but paid no attention to it, the responsibility for that person’s death will be his own — he heard the shofar but paid no attention, so the responsibility for his death is his own; whereas if he had paid attention, he would have saved his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the shofar, so that the people are not warned; and then the sword comes and takes any one of them, that one is indeed taken away in his guilt, but I will hold the watchman responsible for his death.’

“Likewise you, human being — I have appointed you as watchman for the house of Isra’el. Therefore, when you hear the word from my mouth, warn them for me. When I tell the wicked person, ‘Wicked person, you will certainly die’; and you fail to speak and warn the wicked person to leave his way; then that wicked person will die guilty; and I will hold you responsible for his death. On the other hand, if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he doesn’t turn from his way; then he will still die guilty, but you will have saved your own life. Ezekiel 33:1-7 (CJB)

Word Of The Lord – Calling All Intercessors!

WORD OF THE LORD – CALLING ALL INTERCESSORS!16 He saw that there was no one, was amazed that no one interceded. Therefore his own arm brought him salvation, and his own righteousness sustained him. Isaiah 59:16 (CJB)

I am calling forth My intercessors to take their place in the battle. There are many that are not in position and now is the time for you to take your place.  It is a time of high alert in the land and you are being called now to do battle for the souls of men. Battles are taking place for the nations of the earth and the souls of men.  Now is the time for you to lay aside all that is not important and to spend time with Me that you might see and hear.  Then you can pray according to My Word and see the Word of the Lord go forth in the earth. My Kingdom is within you. I live within you. Not for the pleasures of this world but to be that one I have called you to be.  Hear My voice and move into position.

I am the light of this world.  It is my light and fire that men must see and be saved.  I am calling you to pray men into the Kingdom of God. Nations stand in the balance, souls stand in the balance and many are going to hell daily. I say to you pray, and intercede for the souls of men and for all that are in authority over you.

You can see that battle has heated up greatly and there is gross darkness in the land. Rights of those that are mine are being taken away daily and you must stand your ground, first in the prayer closet.  Be on high alert and vigilant.  Have your spiritual periscope up and searching for all that is not of me that you might defeat the enemy. Keep your eyes staid on Me for only then as you truly fellowship with Me will you see and hear.

Be alert in prayer. Wake up My church for many are yet asleep in the light.  Hard times are coming and the enemy would try and bring about a third world war.  Be alert and pray for the situation in the middle east.  The situation with Iran and Syria are a powder keg about to go off and you must pray.

Keep your eyes on Russia for it is again raising its head.  Call on Me and I will intervene as you move My hand in prayer.  There is great need for intercessors praying for Israel and you need to surround her with your prayers of intercession.  Pray that they have wisdom and come to the knowledge of the truth that indeed, I am their Messiah.

Pray for President Obama for wisdom and that he will come to hear My voice.  I have been speaking but He has not yet heard My voice.  Pray for the protection of those in authority that no weapon formed against the United States of America will prosper.  Pray that the spirit of behemoth be brought down for it is arising worldwide.  Men have thought that they can do it their way and self must be brought down.

I am doing a work in the hearts of men but there is a red star rising and it is Russia and you must be in prayer concerning Russia for their position in the middle east is not by accident but by design.  There are those that you will be shown how to pray for and also to take down the kingdoms of the enemy in corporate prayer.  Come together in corporate prayer.  I have designed you and created you for this time and hour.  Be the prophetic intercessors that I have called you to be.  Shoot the arrows of My Word and hit the target.

Take the Word of God and fight for all that is good and true and decent for the spirit of deception is moving rapidly to deceive even the very elect if this were possible. Pray for truth in the body of Christ to be revealed.  Pray for deliverance from deception.  If it were possible even the very elect could be deceived.  But My Spirit is all powerful and as you cry out for the truth of My Word you will see the deceptions of men.

Fear not that which I am speaking to you but fear the Lord and know that I am moving. I am the light of the world, the fire that needs to burn in the hearts of men. Run this race with great care and diligence, putting aside all but that which is important for the Kingdom of God to be furthered in the earth.  Lay aside all that is not of Me.  Walk in love and let the love of Christ flow through you to the hearts of men.  Arise and let Me be your first love.

Prayer Alerts

In the middle of the night I heard the words, ” behemoth is rising”. I searched out the scripture in the book of Job 40:15-25 and also Behemoth means something of oppressive or monstrous size, power, or appearance in Mirriam-Websters dictionary. The Lord also showed me a black submarine on the surface shortly afterwards.  Several hours later after praying He had me do a search and showed me that there was a Russian nuclear sub by that name and also other nations had subs of this kind as well.  Later that day I heard storm clouds were on the horizon and also the words, “red star rising”.  There was a photo of a Russian sub above surface very near a Russian beach. The people were going about their business as usual with few concerned about what was before them.  Now is the time for man to wake up and realize that the cold war is not over.  We need to see with the eyes of the Spirit so we can pray accordingly.

We are entering a time of the 9th of Av. starting tomorrow evening.  It is a time throughout history where many catastrophes have happened to the Jewish people.  Let us be prayerful during this time for Israel and also for the Israeli team at the 2012 Summer Olympics as it is a concern of Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu.  Also that God would have His way and touch the hearts of men and women in London, England and visitors from around the world.

Let us be praying for the drought and severe weather situations throughout the US and some of Canada.  Let us pray for a spirit of repentance to fill the hearts of men and that mercy of God would send rain first in the hearts of men and then on the land. Scripture tells us that it rains on the just and the unjust. Your prayers do make a difference so do not doubt but pray in faith believing.

Let us pray that all terrorist attacks be revealed and thwarted. Also for the people of Aurora, Colorado during the difficult days ahead.

Be praying for the body of the Lord Jesus Christ to arise and be all she has been called to be and that His glory would be seen in His people.

Here’s Your Pen! by Joni Ames

by Joni Ames

Dear Friends,

I just awoke from a most amazing dream and ensuing conversation with the Lord which I pray inspires and catapults His creativity within each of you!
I saw a huge desk in an office in heaven where boxes of thousands upon thousands of pens were open and being released and sent out to many. They were pens of many colors, and each color represented the emotion or purpose of that pen. I’m talking about the trunk or casing of the pen, not the color of the ink. So don’t get stuck on that. Perhaps the ink was the same color. I do not know. Anyhow….
The red pen meant that what was to be written with it was of utmost importance in timing and content. Even that color had a variety of meanings as well. Some were red for redemption, like the blood of Jesus, for they would be used to set someone free. Some were red because of the important nature of it’s use. Some were red because God was angry and would use it to pour forth His Godly Fury about a situation.
Some pens were blue because a person was sad, and it would bring comfort. Others were blue because it would bring forth revelation. Others were blue because it would announce that a storm was over, and a clear blue sky was ahead.
Some pens were green because they would pour forth teaching, knowledge, and growth. Some were green because God was giving a “Green light; Go!” word to someone.
Some pens were gold, for they would pour forth words of wisdom.
Some pens were silver, because someone had been tried like silver, and redemption was given.
Some pens were purple, for they would bring forth royal decrees.
Some pens were black, for what was written would bring forth something clear, plain and simple, yet needed.
I continued to walk around the room and look into all of the boxes of pens – there were so many! And every pen and each color had meaning.
Please note: Don’t get overly “stuck” on the color. It’s only symbolic. I believe He gives us what we need, when we need it, per the occasion He calls us to write about.
First of all, let me say that there are writers of all kinds who God inspires. There are writers of books and writers of songs. There are writers who draft constitutions for nations – like ours! There are writers who write columns in newspapers, or a writer that sends one simple “Letter to the Editor” that will bring a thing to the attention of a city and change it’s way of thinking or it’s destiny. There are writers who simply pick up a pen and send an occasional note to a friend that arrives “at the right time” to bring hope and encouragement in letting someone know they are loved and thought about.
This word is for writers of all kinds, in every nation, to let you know that the drought is over, and the pens of the ready writer are being released to each who ask for it! We each need to be diligent and obedient with ours!
“Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.” (Jer. 33:3)
Let me also say that this is not about some “magic” thing of divination, like demonic “automatic writing.” The enemy has a counterfeit for all the Lord has. Let’s not go there.
The idea of pens is symbolic, to represent the leading and inspiration in the anointing of the Holy Spirit to accomplish the task Father God wants to release in and through us via writing. So, lets not get “stuck” on the use of the word “pens.” He clearly showed me that it was okay to use our computer keyboard!
Don’t get trapped in the “paralysis of analysis” by any of this. That would stifle the Holy Spirit’s creativity. Instead, allow Him to speak to your heart, and give to you the understanding through His Word via the scriptures as well.
Before I go any further, it is important to say here that God is perfect, but we are not. Even when writing under the unction, we are still human and make mistakes in grammar or spelling. Therefore we still need to proofread and edit things, for the purpose of clarity and function.
Anyhow – I wish you could feel what I feel in my heart and spirit about this! A myriad of emotions and tears came forth as a result of my experience. For it was very clear in this experience that, through our obedience, He can and will change the lives and destinies of many!
How This Came About…
As I was praying about the current events in the news, I asked the Lord what I should say to bring peace and comfort and hope to people. In my heart, I “put myself down,” and said, “Lord, I don’t know what to say in order to do that! Please help me!”
The Lord made it clear that it wasn’t just me that He wanted to use, but many. Including those that He would have me send this to.
Anyhow, He responded in the following way….
Overnight, the Lord met with me in a dream, and began to show me that there are many that He has called in this time to speak forth His Heart. But we must trust in Him, not ourselves, to do that. And it is important to not ignore the “urge” to write out what He speaks to us when He begins to release the anointing to do so. Also to be rid of all other distractions as that happens. He gave me this scripture:
“My heart is indicting a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.” (Psalm 45:1 KJV)
He then said this to me….
“You need to pay attention to the voice that speaks as the words wrap around the corner at the end of each sentence. Always be ready to explore the adventure, as if you were climbing upon a beautiful rainbow!”
“My words have life and meaning, and through them, I will paint pictures of hope and destiny that will be more powerful than any situation, and outlast many generations.”
“Release them (My Words) from the captivity you’ve placed them in, and you will see the captives set free, and the promises of a lifetime unfold before your very eyes – for yourself AND for others! “
“I have kind words to speak to those who need them, and harsh words to say to those deserving of such. Be ready and listen for both, for each will accomplish my intended purpose to rescue, heal, and set that particular one free.”
“Even in this time, I shall give words to heal a nation and cause them to come to Me.”
“So hold fast. Hold tightly to My Hand. Don’t ignore the small still voice I send to you when the oceans of anointing are stirred and ready to roar and be released. For pictures will be painted through the words I give to you that will remind my beloved ones to hold on, remain strong, and survive and thrive in the days ahead.”
“Be ready, for the season of drought is now done, and my steady, constant rains shall refresh many through the written word – through you.”
As He said this, I saw beautiful paintings of futures of people and lands  birthed simultaneously as words proceeded from His mouth, to and through typing hands, and onto each page.
The Lord wants to use you to speak to others. He does that, you know. Words are important. He used Words to form the whole earth and all of creation!
He has released the armies of pens to the “ready” writers. “Ready” means, “Immediately available,” “Willingly disposed,” “Likely to do something indicated,” “Spontaneous,” “Prepared for immediate use.”
These “Ready Writers” shall spark nations to change and come to their knees before Him. Do not hold back nor ignore using your “pen” when it begins to tap and to dance in your heart, by the leading of the Holy Spirit.
It’s time! Go forth! And win many battles!
Constitutions will be written, new nations spring forth, and new histories released at the stroke of these pens.
Grab one, as if a sword or a rifle, and use it with all your might! For the pen truly is mightier than the sword, and the results are full of hope and life!
He wants to use His Creativity to touch and breathe on your sanctified imagination. Don’t let the enemy speak condemnation to you about it. Remember, His Word says,
“Casting down imaginations [reasonings], and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Cor. 10:5)
He also reminded me of Psalm 68:11, which speaks directly to women. I’m going to give you several versions, for it enhances the meaning. It says:
King James version:
“The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.”
Through this, I believe He showed me that He will literally use His anointed women to literally publish what He releases to them.
NIV Version:
The Lord announces the word, and the women who proclaim it are a mighty throng (army).
NASB – New American Standard Bible
(11) The Lord gives the command; The women who proclaim the good tidings are a great host (army):
And let‘s not forget verse 12:
“Kings of armies flee, they flee, And she who remains at home will divide the spoil!”
I added that last part because I want to make it clear that there are those of you women out there that are AT HOME that He will use as well. In your “quiet” time, however short or long, as you place your hands on the keyboard or pen, He will speak words through you that will go forth and be like the rudder of a ship, and change the course of history in the lives – and even nations – of many. – Even via a free blog on the Internet that will reach into many nations. Let God be your publisher! Instantly! As soon as He gives you a new word!
So grab your “pen,” whether a literal pen or computer keyboard, and your “ready” self, and Go forth!
Writers of songs, God will give you prophetic songs of the Lord that will melt the hearts of un-believers and bring deliverance and hope – even to nations!
Writers of notes and letters: God will speak to your heart about someone who needs a word of encouragement, and your email or note in the mail will arrive at just the right moment, and bring great peace and joy to the heart that needs it!
Writers of scholastic materials: God will give to you the ability to impart amazing knowledge and wisdom to His children!
Writers of business plans and contracts: The Lord shall give you the exact wording to avert danger and bring forth clarity of purpose and destiny.
Writers of political speeches and documents: God will enhance your ability and anointing to convey His Heart and meaning and release and set your nation free!
Writers of blogs, books, and articles: The dam of dryness has been broken! Write books that will mark the times and change lives!
Writers of all kinds – arise and speak life and hope and healing to people and nations and generations that need your obedience! It’s time!!!!
Father, by the power and authority of the name and blood of Jesus, please release to all who read this your heart and hope and anointing, and give to them their “pen of the ready writer.” We thank You and, in advance, give to You all the glory and honor due to You for any good that is accomplished! Amen.
