We Are Given Teachers

Hebrews 6:12
We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.

1 Corinthians 11:1-2
Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.
...I praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to the traditions just as I passed them on to you.


There are people who been put in place for us to follow. They have fruit that can be examined so that we do not follow down the wrong path of ‘good sounding words,’ persuasive arguments, or powerless entities masquerading as a church. 

The Holy Spirit, who is our teacher, also provides us with teachers. He calls them, molds them, and tests them before He ordains them. He does this because He loves us and wants the best for us.

Dear Prophet... longing for the old days

Job 29:2-6 NIV
[2] “How I long for the months gone by, for the days when God watched over me, [3] when his lamp shone on my head and by his light I walked through darkness! [4] Oh, for the days when I was in my prime, when God's intimate friendship blessed my house, [5] when the Almighty was still with me and my children were around me, [6] when my path was drenched with cream and the rock poured out for me streams of olive oil.

Dear Prophet, 
Don't let these be the words of your heart, where longing for past glory dims your eyes to your vision our Father has placed within you. Shake yourself off and put your left foot out in front of you and walk again.

Take a step for today, and again for tommorow. Pretty soon, you'll find your heart restored to the hope He put inside of you.

Shake it off and walk again. The sun is about to crest the hill. The sky already shows it's light. Be dressed and ready for the day ahead. God has great things planned... be ready.

Don't Roak My Boat

Isaiah 30:10-11
Who say to the seers, “Do not see,”
And to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us right things;
Speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits.
Get out of the way,
Turn aside from the path,
Cause the Holy One of Israel
To cease from before us.”

I never thought I would see this verse in real life. I pondered how anyone could ever say something so blantenly ignorant.  But now I have seen it and even had opportunity to say it myself... Things like:

Don't rock my boat... 
Ever say that and mean it ? 
I don't want to hear your bad news...
Ever close your ears to hearing more problems?

When the Lord sends us a message through someone, we must be careful not to cast it aside because it rocks our boat... ie... Messes with our own plans.

Hagin: Prophet’s Ministry When they will Not Listen

Hagin:  Prophet’s Ministry

When the Lord was dealing with me concerning the prophet's ministry, He said that if a church doesn't accept my ministry then I should go my way, shake the dust off my feet against them, so to speak; but He would remove their candlestick. He would take away from them what power they had left. The Lord told me that the time is short and the work that must be done should be done quickly in these last days. He said that judgment must begin in the house of God, and if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the sinner and the ungodly appear. If a church won't accept this ministry, then they wouldn't accept His Word and He can't help them.

If the pastor won't accept this message, then judgment will come on him. 

If  I have a revelation or message for the pastor, I am to deliver it. 

If  I have a message for an individual or a church, then I am to deliver it.

Some do not believe that personal prophecy is scriptural. 
They do not believe that a prophet may have a message for an individual. 
However, in Acts 21:8-11 Luke says,

And the next day we that were of Paul's company departed, and came unto Caesarea: and we entered into the house of Philip the evangelist ... And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy. And as we tarried there many days, there came down from Judaea a certain prophet, named Agabus. And when he was come unto us, he took Paul's girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.

One phase of the prophet's ministry is that he speaks for the Holy Ghost. In the scripture quoted above, Agabus didn't tell Paul not to go to Jerusalem. He merely told him what would happen there. And it came to pass. Through this gift we have the ability to help people and to prepare them for things that are ahead.

Usurping Your Authority

(Words from the Lord through Marsha Burns)


I have given you authority to fulfill what I have called you to do and to be.  If you allow anyone to usurp that authority, you will not only be disobedient, but the outcome will be disastrous both for you and the one who comes between us.  Stand your ground and pay attention to My leading, says the Lord.  

Isaiah 1:19 If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.

My First Vision: The Rapture

The rapture

This was a very real vision. Real enough to reach out and touch. I heard a trumpet blow. It sounded much like a train horn. Then I saw this young man laying on the ground, rise up and stand. I knew he was rising at the sound of the trumpet. And I knew the trumpet was the sound of the rapture. I was impressed about how real it was, and also help easy it was for him to just stand up.

The Anointing: A hard thing

2 Kings 2:9-10

And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me. And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.


Do you think the demons are going to just give up the ground they have seized? They are not. They are going to resist you and turn on you because you are rocking their boat.

They will attack your foundational beliefs making you wonder if you are really called. They will attack your daily walk by trying to hinder you in every direction you try to step.

The demons will try to steal your future by accusing you of having pipe dreams and telling you things are only get worse, not better.

Elijah said, "you have asked for a hard thing..."

Charismatic Witchcraft: “Should”

These words: "They should..." "They need to. These are manipulative words. Even saying, "they need
to get saved” can be spoken in a manipulative spirit if you are looking at someone's life and determine
their life does not meet your standards. 

Sure, we know all should be saved, and we know our Father desires that all be saved. But, when we cross the lines and voice our opinion that so and so needs
to become a christian so they will act the way we want them to act- this is charismatic witchcraft.

Actually, we are releasing the spirits of legalism upon a person. We are tossing upon them a set of
standards we determine to be acceptable, bypassing the most important aspect of salvation, "a relationship
with God almighty.”

Seers: seeing into their eyes ...

Many years ago when I first started my 'training' with the Lord, He showed me there is a power within the eyes when making eye to eye contact.  I experimented with it a bit, but then had second thoughts about using it.  I don't remember much but looking eye to eye with someone created a spiritual connection.  I had just written a paper on the new age movement and it's attributes, so I did not want to get all weird and kinky.

I never forgot it though.  I waited and waited for someone I respected to talk about it or explain it.  Well, the Lord brought it back up this past week.  I want to share this with you so that if you have had anything in your gifting along the lines of eye to eye contact and power, but don't know what to do with it... then perhaps this will help you some.  

The Lord gave me a vision of a pastor I know inviting me to come and speak at his church.  In the vision, I was standing at the front of his church looking out at the congregation.  I saw no one.  No one.  I asked the Lord what this meant.  He revealed to me that there no eyes for me to see there at this minister's church.  (He is a very spirit filled minister and this vision reflects nothing bad on his congregation.)

So then, I was led by the Holy Spirit to look into some of the people in my own personal life.  In vision form, I looked into the eyes of one of my best friends.  I saw 50%.  Not sure what that meant, I then looked into her husband's eyes and saw 75%.  I am still not sure what that means.  I am not even really friends with her husband at all.  But, I did not let this stop me.  I went on and began to look into other people's eyes (in the spirit and in vision form) and here are a few of the things I saw:  One person was just looking all around her, up here, over there, in sort of a jerky way.  Another place I looked was at the new neighbors.  I do not know them and thought this would be a great place to test what I see in the spirit.  Of the five people there, I could only see one of them.  I did not look into his eyes, but I saw him being busy around the house.  But the thing I knew was that if I was to look into one of their eyes, he would be the only one.

I went on and tested this, all the while praying in the spirit and being very cautious not to cross any lines with the Lord.  I did look at one person I know and it was not a pleasant experience.  He saw me looking and quickly came up very close to me.  Our eye to eye contact began to make me very sick to my stomach and I looked away.  It took me a few moments to settle down after that experience.  I thought he would jump out of the vision and devour me.  Ugg.  I went on testing those I know and one was looking looking up at the clouds and around at this and that just like a little child.  Another one would look into my eyes and then look away as if distracted by other things. And so on.... 

So, how did I look into other people's eyes in a vision?  Well, since the Lord started the vision, I just stayed in it.  I guess you can say that it was on the screen of my imagination.  These are things a seer can see in the spirit.  As far as what all this means, well, I have yet to figure it all out.  :)

The Reward from the Prophet

Jesus said, If you receive a prophet in the name of a prophet you receive a prophet’s reward.
Then in II Kings 4 we read that the prophet told the woman who had treated him so kindly that
would have a child within the year.  This is an example of receiving and being blessed by a prophet.

If they had not received him, how could they have received any reward?
And in this case… a child.  That is no small reward.

What about when the prophet stays in hiding and refuses to allow them to know he his a prophet?

I am not suggesting that a prophet go out and announce to the world they are a prophet of God, but
I am bringing this to you so it can be considered.  The Bible, in Ezekiel, the Lord says that they will know
that there is a prophet among them.  So, in some way, your status as a prophet will be revealed.  Just keep

being faithful and allow the Lord to do what He does.  I only bring these things to you to be considered.
