7 “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. 8 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. 9 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)

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.
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.

HERE’S YOUR PEN!
by Joni Ames
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.
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.

The day will come when you will find yourself in the pathway of one with the spirit of jezebel. Sometimes it is in a man but most often you will find this spirit working through a woman. It is a seducing spirit and one of control. This spirit when it discovers who you are in Christ becomes very underhanded attempting to tear down your work in the Lord. It tries to make you doubt who you are in Christ and is the accuser of the brethren. You can never please the jezebel spirit or any evil spirit and you need to stand against it and its arsenal of witchcraft.
Little innuendos that always puff themselves up, put you down by criticism and sow doubt spew out of their mouth toward you. They always have a better way of doing things. Out of the mouth of the unsaved it will say the word of God is past. No it is light and life and more up to date than today’s newspaper. It will accuse what you are doing in Christ and even send another to spy you out when they are not capable of doing so themselves. Basically they despise the true things of God and when they find out you are a prophet or prophetess of the Lord all hell breaks loose. Up till that time they are controlling but then all the guns come out against you as its religious spirit attacks.
Beloved stand guard and be warned that as you come against this spirit you need to stand strong and do not back down. Remember Elisha’s victory as jezebel came tumbling down. This is what need to happen in the spirit realm. That demon spirit can be torn down from the heavenlies being broken of regions as well as people as His church corporately intercedes for wisdom to deal with this spirit. In the multitude of counselors there is safety and also wisdom.
Those that need delivered from this spirit will not be delivered unless they are willing to submit to those in authority over them, repent of their sin and walk in humility before God and man. Only then can this spirit be cast out of them. In some cases they first need to be born again by the Spirit of God.
This spirit will peck at you and put you down continually as it puffs the one with it up. If you have an area of your life where you have difficulty or not done according to their perfectionist spirit they will peck at you as a woman who pecks at her husband constantly. It looks for any area of weakness in your life. It attacks the true prophet of God and we need to be warned again against it.
It can flatter to dig its talons into you and you need to be filled with the Spirit to fight this battle. Condemnation is one of its weapons and you need to refuse condemnation and thwart it in the name of Jesus. Remember that there is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Romans 8:1)
Through the discerning of spirits God is revealing this spirit to His body and there are those that are discerning when it is in their midst. This spirit hated Elijah and did not like the all out assault he waged and won against the prophets of Baal and it does not like you. Keep up your guard and ask Father God to send others your way also to help battle against this spirit. It will often say, you do not have to be answerable to any man and no man is going to tell me what to do. It is in rebellion against all true authority set in the Word of God. The Spirit of God says the opposite, submit to those that are in authority over you, walk in humility and submit to one another in the fear of God, esteeming others better than themselves.
We are to walk in an opposite spirit in fear and submission to the Lord. Praying without ceasing, in the spirit that we will know how to answer every man. Jezebels Kingdom is coming down. Arise and fight the battle being wise as serpents and harmless as doves. The Lord is faithful and will help you to wage this war wisely and win. Christ will be exalted and the devils kingdoms are coming down. We serve a God who is all powerful who has given us weapons of warfare to fight the battle and win. We are over comers who walk covered by the blood of the Lamb and love not our lives to the death. Stand in the power of the Lord your God, resist the devil and He will flee from you. Victory is assured in Christ alone and by the blood of Jesus we overcome. Overcome Beloved by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of your testimony.

WORD OF THE LORD – July 2, 2012
With Prayer Alerts
I am seeking a people that are wholly mine. Those that have come out of the world and know their God. It is time to come to Me my people and give me your all, holding nothing back. You can see the hour in which you are living and the perils that are before you each and every day. Turn to me my people and open up your hearts that I might do a lasting work in you. No longer will I settle for lip service but I am looking to you and searching you that I might find a servants heart. Have I not made it clear to my people that I am longsuffering and not willing that any should perish? Have I not made it clear that you need to get rid of the sin in your life? I am speaking to My children because of my great love for you. I am not willing that one should perish. I am calling you to come forth and be all you have been called to be. I am speaking to you to come forth and stand before Me. Humble your hearts and turn it all over to Me. Many of you are withholding your hearts from Me and this greatly saddens me that you will not give your all to Me. I have given all for you. Open your hearts My children, cry out to Me for I will forgive your sins. I will heal your diseases and I will walk with you. Give your whole heart to Me while there is time.
Nations are in disarray and hanging in the balance. Swords have been drawn on many sides and it is not long before great war takes place in the nations of the earth. Men are planning for battle but I say to you I have prepared you for myself and will be your hiding place even in the battle. Turn all over to Me. Pray for your nation and pray for the gates that have been opened through sin as they have given access to the enemy. These gates need to be shut through intercession and I am looking for intercessors that will come to Me and call on Me standing in the gap for the sin of your nation.
Even in New York the enemy has sought to come in and destroy again. I say to you that narrow is the way that leads to life and broad is the way that leads to destruction. I am calling you children, the apple of My eye to come forth and stand in the gap. Stand in the place of that intercessor and call on Me. The enemy is seeking to come in even into your city and the destroyer has placed himself to strike again. Intercession can stop this. The enemy wants war and when a man is at peace with His God peace will reign in a nation. It is time for your nation to stop its dealings with the enemy and come and bow before Me. It is time to let me rule and reign for I am the King of Kings and Lord of Glory. I would rule in your nation and in the hearts of men.
There is no redemption for the nation whose people do not turn to Me. Intercession should be a joy and not a chore. I am entreating you. Come to Me. Get busy and call a chosen fast and seek My face. Call on the name of your redeemer for I am your God. Call on Me and I will answer you. A nation can be spared with true repentance. Bring forth true repentance. Call on me and see if I will answer you. Call on Me and I will hear you. I am shaking that which can be shaken and there will be shaking in leadership in the natural and in the spiritual. I am looking for one that is pliable in My hands. They are few. I am looking for leadership that will bend their will to mine and seek me in prayer for their nation.
You have not because you have asked not and when you have asked you have asked with wrong motives. I seek the intents of the heart. Call on Me and seek me for the enemy seeks to devour your nation. He is seeking entrance to destroy but I say to you intercession can turn away the enemy from without and within. Seek Me now and call on Me with your whole heart. Repent of sin and you will win this battle. Corporately there needs to be repentance. Cry to Me and I will turn your nation around. The key is to cry out, cry loud against sin and spare not. Too many have made light of sin and I cannot look on sin for I am a Holy God. Repent of sin, call a solemn fast and see if I can do a work in your nation. The end is close and I say call on me for I am the Lord.
Prayer Alerts to Pray for New York City. The area of Broadway, Time Square and 42nd street have been brought to my attention by the Lord.
Also Emerald Isle, N.C. whose waterway is an open gate for enemies of the United States to attack. Intercessors need to shut this door in the spirit.
The heat wave throughout the US is life threatening. Millions are without power. God is trying to get our attention and often uses weather, and natural calamities as a means to do so. Fires and drought have been allowed but are not God’s desire for a nation who walks with the Lord. God is speaking through these natural circumstances that it is time to repent and turn fully to the Lord.
14 If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. 2 Chr. 7:14 (AMP)

by Patricia Hamel
Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. 1 Cor. 14:29
God wants His spiritual gifts operating in the body of Christ. Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant: 1 Cor. 12:1 (NKJV)
There is a time to keep silent and a time to speak. The Lord has spoken to my heart that it is time to speak about this matter. We are admonished to judge the prophetic word after it has been spoken. Many are posting prophetic words online and there is very little in the way of true prophetic accountability. This can be a dangerous thing especially if there are not those who will speak the truth in love after reading a prophetic word because of fear of man. When the body of Christ comes together in corporate worship the prophetic word would be judged when given and the one giving the word would be held accountable.
We are clearly told that the prophetic word will speak to men and that it will edify, exhort and comfort them. 3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. 1 Cor. 14:3
Many have had little teaching on this subject and just receive everything they read, some have never prophesied in the body of Christ where there is prophetic accountability. People can and do make mistakes in their learning to prophesy and need to be teachable. Also there are those that are putting out prophetic words of doom and gloom where one does not see Jesus in them as words are twisted, taken out of context and a mixture.
The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of all true prophesy. When you read a word, take the time to read each and every word and ponder it. Do not just take it to heart. Can you back it up with the Word of God. When in doubt put it aside and pray over it. God will in His time speak to you about it if you are willing to wait on Him.
God puts out a clear prophetic flow from a river of clean water. There is no mixture with God. If the one prophesying has a wounded heart they will prophesy out of that wounding. If they see God as a Father who is always angry because of their own troubled relationship with an earthly Father, yet unhealed then they will prophesy accordingly.
Years ago I recall being taught that the purity of a prophecy will depend on how close a relationship the one prophesying has with the Lord.
God is speaking serious things to His children in this hour yet the mature prophetic person will speak from a pure prophetic flow. They will take time to wait on Him and out of that clean river of living water speak. They will be walking a repentant walk. It is so important when one prophesies that their heart is clean before the Lord and that they take time to make sure there is nothing between themselves and God. Also one needs to prophesy out of the unction of the Holy Ghost to be sure that it is from the Lord.
There are times in reading a word that one can see that the person putting out the word has sat there with their bible and then written out of what they have read, put it in their own words and labeled it as a prophecy.
To whom is God speaking in a prophetic word? Is it to His church? The Lord loves His bride, His church and gave Himself for her. It is a love relationship and He never belts His bride over the head and abuses her but He loves her and has laid down His life for her. Is God speaking to someone who is unsaved or to Israel or another nation of the world. We need to determine to whom God is speaking if it has not been made clear in the beginning.
If you read a word and come away from reading it fearful, and void of any edification, exhortation and comfort and feel a sense of dread then there is a problem with the prophecy you are reading. Yes, God can lovingly correct you and show you things to come but they will NOT remove all hope from you. Christ gives you a future and a hope.
Jesus said, My sheep know My voice and they will not follow another. Take time with the Lord and in doing so you will hear His voice. Remember that the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of all true prophecy.
10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Rev. 19:10

The term ” asleep at the switch” came to mind this afternoon when I saw something delayed. Intercessors came to mind. Father God wants His intercessors to be alert and on the wall so that they might hear Him speak and reveal His plans and also to thwart the plans of the enemy. If you are one that has difficulty standing on your post, it is time to wake up and take your place. God is calling His intercessors to arise.
30 And I sought a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none. Ezekiel 22:30 (AMP)
