"And they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land: for they have heard that thou LORD art among this people, that thou LORD art seen face to face, and that thy cloud standeth over them, and that thou goest before them, by day time in a pillar of a cloud, and in a pillar of fire by night." (Num 14:14).

A pillar of fire is forming over Portland. An apostolic and eternal flame is forming over them. The eagles of destiny are beginning to gather over her. She will be a branch of Jesse, a place of international destiny, and a spiritual legacy. Those that have fathered her will bear the weight of this glory. From their loins will come many children. David's and Samuel's, a chosen generation.

Portland will be a spiritual head waters. A mouth of glory. A portal of My presence will be seen over Portland. My arch-angels are poised over her to defend its destiny. The enemy has seen the seed of revival in you and is contending over the body of Portland. But like the body of Moses I will fight for you. This year you will begin to taste the first fruits of breakthrough. I will break up the fallow ground. From you will come a new sound. It will call the nation to repentance and reconciliation. I will restore your inheritance O Portland.

This is the year of My favor. My prophetic promises will be fulfilled. You have come to full term and now you will give birth to the promise. For He that promised is faithful to perform it O Portland. The birth pangs Portland have come to fruition and the child shall be born. An anointing is coming forth. An ancient anointing of healing. The healing of the nations will come from you. You have been Hannah to Me in this season. I have heard your groanings. An anointing of Samual you are giving way too. This year it shall see its way into the earth. This year it shall bring forth its David's.

Portland, you are at a precipice of My power. You are entering a new year and a change of season. The enemy has desired to sift you as wheat but I have prayed for you O Portland. I am ever making intercession for you. I will awaken your children in the midnight hour to tear down the altars. They will invade the night with My glory and light. No dark place will be safe from My face. Now the streets will taste the first fruits of My grace. I will establish a beachhead of revival in Portland that will not be moved with the shifting of times and seasons. It will be fruit that remains.
