James Goll, for Portland

The last weekend of October, James Goll was speaking in Portland.

In the midst of that, he declared this prophetic word: the restoration of apostles & prophets who do not keep it to themselves but equip the saints to do the work of ministry.

We've heard this before. James' prophecy adds another prophetic target for intercessors, adds another measure of God's resource to accomplish what God is declaring.

Word for Oregon

Today spontaneously while driving I heard the words, "I'm calling pioneers to be settlers in Oregon”.

This was troubling to me since I have always identified myself as a pioneer.

I'm aware that Oregon is known as a pioneer state, many have lost their lives taking the journey to settle Oregon.

However, what I was hearing was pioneering spiritually attached to an independent spirit. The Lord’s desire is for pioneers to become settling pioneers.

A settling pioneer is one who joins community and serves a larger corporate vision while still pioneering God's dreams for his city.

I then saw a picture of streams filling up the desert. This is a reference to Isaiah 35:6-7.

ISAIAH 35:6&7
Then will the lame leap like a deer,
and the mute tongue shout for joy.
Water will gush forth in the wilderness
and streams in the desert.
The burning sand will become a pool,
the thirsty ground bubbling springs…

It's the Father's desire for the dry spiritual climate in Oregon to experience rivers of refreshing.

I asked the Lord how we as a body were to come into alignment with His heart?

I quickly heard the word, “worship.”

Worship will cause us to take our eyes off ourselves and put them on Jesus. Worshiping the Lord has the power to cause people to unite like nothing else I have personally ever seen. Independence no longer becomes an issue in the Presence of the Lord.

I want to encourage pastors and leaders to begin to host worship gatherings where the priority is Christ being glorified with no other agenda. Times of worship where not only the local church gather but other churches in the region are invited to gather as well.

Regional worship gatherings will begin to form a war ship where the spirit of heaviness and apathy will be displaced.

It's time to awaken those that are sleeping spiritually and awaken to our inheritance as a state.

This is why it is said:

“Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”

Ephesians 5:14

An Important Key To A Future Blessed Government

To the degree that we choose to bless rather than curse, is the degree the order of heaven will be released upon on the earth.

An Important Key To A Future Blessed Government

I believe, we are now standing on the brink of a major resolve, one of which will usher in a new field of government, both in the natural and spirit. As I have stated multiple times before, the deterioration of an old government is making way for the new. The current display of division in this nation and the world is one of the greatest illusions of all time.

Its force of influence is instrumented through hate and fear.

Historically, fear and hatred bear record of harnessing countless people into believing the future is one of darkness and hopelessness, rather than light and promise.

It’s historically noted that the “gates of hell will not prevail.”  Which means, the government of hate, disunity and darkness, cannot, and will not, overcome the government of love, unity and light.

In case you haven’t noticed, our government is being redefined. In terms of the natural realm, the government of the past will not be the government of the future. This is equally true concerning the government of the Spirit. We are not going back to the days of Adam and Eve. Contrary to popular belief, our birthright, thus our inheritance is born of the Spirit not the flesh.

“That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and
that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” (John 3:6)

It has long been my belief, that the Oval office of these United States will historically extend an unusual invite toward the men and women of God in spiritual leadership. Thus, a newfound residence of the government of heaven will emerge within the government of these United States at an unprecedented level.

Having said that, I believe God has shown me an important key that will ultimately unlock his governmental intent over the course of this remaining period as we draw closer to next elected President of these United States.

This key to a blessed  government is through the power of blessing.

Regardless of our governmental stance toward Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, we must choose the road of blessing rather than cursing. Whether Hillary is your presidential choice or not, as mature sons and daughters of God, we must release blessings toward her and her family.

At the beginning of this year, during an MTI gathering, I shared the insight the Lord had given to me concerning Hillary Clinton’s physical state and other intense challenges in her life and family. This was prior to any public evidence. I sensed it was an appeal from the Lord for us to look beyond the natural realm and see the heart of God toward Hillary and her family from an eternal perspective.

In that moment, we prayed for Hillary’s health and well -being, as well as her family, asking God to reveal himself to them in a glorious way.

This same perspective must be applied to Donald Trump and his family as well. We must see them from the perspective of eternity, which is one of love and hope, not hatred and despair.

To the degree that we choose to bless rather than curse, is the degree the order of heaven will be released upon on the earth.

Anything less, will be the result of the enemy trying to lure the people of this nation into agreement with his evil demise toward this nation and other nations in the world.

God is looking for a people who will partner with him in love. When Hillary physically collapsed before the world, I knew this was one of the moments God had spoken to me about earlier.

As the world watched this event unfold, I could feel the sadness of God toward those who were rejoicing over her weakness and brief frailty. I believe moments like these are a limpet test for the body of Christ.

As lovers of God, we are afforded the opportunity to bless and pray for the well- being of all, in hope that they will be impacted by the reality of the governance of God’s heart toward them.

“To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit; not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing.” (1Peter 3:8-9)

In 2015, and prior years, I have leaned into this day, believing it would mark the beginning stages of an unusual restoration that would tear down the deceptive walls of division in this nation.

Also, year’s prior, I spoke about the “News Media” of this nation being impacted by the glory of God, to such extent, that the “good news” instead of “bad news” would become the popular desire of all nations.

We are now standing on the threshold that intended hour.

Throughout this governmental shift, I have maintained my stance that this elective period will, in the end, be a governmental landslide. I believe this will be the result of those getting involved an elective process in ways they had not before. You will also witness countless people secretly shifting sides from their normal political party. They will be highlighted as the “silent majority.”

In addition, the presumed “wealth of the wicked” will not be taken by others, but will willingly be surrendered over to the heart and mind of God, because of a major shift in their own heart toward the advancement of His kingdom.

As hard as it may be for most to believe, God is winning over the hearts of Billionaires worldwide.

Lastly, prior to 2012, I prophetically spoke about the highest office of this nation never being bought or sold again to the highest bidder. I have a sense that time is now here. What used to be the common denominator behind evil political intent will soon be no more. I’m not implying this will be the case a 100% of the time, but our goal should be a 100% nonetheless.
Kingdom Cheers,

The Dancing Signs of God

Recently, I was walking along under a covered sidewalk in a small town known as a tourist destination. Hanging above my head were signs advertising each business along the sidewalk.  

These signs hung on chains. A sudden breeze began to blow causing all the signs to sway in opposite directions in perfect cadence. It was like someone had reached up and set the signs in motion in opposite directions on cue. This produced the impression that the signs were moving in a precisely choreographed dance sequence.

As I passed under the dancing signs, I turned and looked back. I sensed the Lord say, “I have just set in motion signs that will draw your attention. I will cause a sleeping culture to look up to see my spiritual signs like you just looked up to see the natural signs sway in the wind above your head.  What is coming will cause people to look up beyond the familiar surroundings they have assumed to be the only reality. I am releasing my breath to move the signs that will announce a coming change.”

For a few days after I saw those dancing signs above my head, I carried an unsettled feeling. In retrospect, I realize that unsettledness was not negative. It came from the Spirit asking me to not settle for a shallow interpretation of what I see playing out around me as if it were the only reality.  God can create a new reality as easy as He created the Earth – with just a word or by the breath of His Spirit. 

I am sensing a coming interruption to our status quo. This will happen by the breath of God. When the signs begin to sway look up. These signs will advertise the will of God in clear and simple terms just like the signs that danced above my head that day and pointed me in the direction of a particular business. Heaven is moving and so are the signs announcing a coming shift.
