The Statement of Agreement

Kathy — Thy Kingdom come . . . This is a statement of agreement that Father’s order and government should and is coming into manifestation, and that this earthly domain should reflect the Father’s.  This is what a son prays when he/she understands the power of agreement. 


What a Day Can Hold

From a spontaneous song Melissa sang:
“You don’t understand what a day can hold. With each breath you take things can change.  You don’t understand what this day can hold.  With the next breath you take life can change. With each step you take won’t you expect the impossible? Won’t you expect the answer? Don’t you understand that a day sits in the palm of His hand? With each breath you take life can change.  So, won’t you get ready for the impossible atMSG Rise Up your door? Because each day sits in the palm of His hand and there’s nothing outside of His grasp, nothing too far for His eyes to see.”


Joy in Our Labors

The time of sorrow and lamenting in labor is past for many of God’s people  (whosever will) in this season. Eph.2:10,Amp—“For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].”  ICor.15:58,Amp—“Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord [always doing your best and doing more than is needed], being continually aware that your labor [even to the point of exhaustion] in the Lord is not futile nor wasted [it is never without purpose].”  Ps.92:4,Amp—“For You, O Lord, have made me glad by Your works; At the works of Your hands I joyfully sing.”

It is the will of Jehovah God that His people find joy in their labors. “Blessed is everyone who fears and worships the Lord… For you shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; happy shall you be and it shall be well with you.”(Ps128:1-2) People of God will inherit the labors of other nations. “He brought forth His people with joy…and gave them the lands of the nations and they reaped the fruits of those peoples’ labor, that they might observe His statutes.” (Ps.105:43-45) The people of God are not for the shame of His embarrassment but are for the praise of His glory. (Isa.60:21; Eph1:12) Labor with wisdom and invest with wisdom.


Hallowed be Thy Name

Kathy — Hallowed be Thy name . . . (Matt.10:9). You are holy.  I venerate Your name, knowing it represents all that You are, all Your authority and character.  Father, there is no other like You, nor can anyone else be called by Your Name.

Counter, Control and Finish

Melissa — The initial hit you receive from the enemy might require you to go on the defense, but you never stay there.  I will explain this in a tactical way.  I took self-defense classes for a number of years. One of my instructors said, “We teach you to defend yourself one time.  We will never teach you to stay in a defensive position.  You must counter, control, and finish the fight.”  Well, my goodness.  What strategy!  After you defend yourself one time from your enemy’s attack you then strike back with the weapons and skill God has given you. You can’t stay just in the defensive position. You propel forward because He already set up your counter measures and you are well armed, and able!  What are your counter measures?  Number one: Scripture. Number two: your Holy Spirit-breathed prophetic words.  Other than that, whatever God has personally set up for you.  Ask Him to show you and open your eyes to see!  Don’t get bogged down in the fear of it. Look for His provision because it is already there. Isaiah 54:17 — “no weapon formed against you shall prosper” is not an afterthought.  It is solid forethought!


We Know Whom we Have Believed

As the people of God assemble today may they rejoice and be glad that they are not without hope, because they can confidently say, “I know Him [and I am personally acquainted with Him] whom I have believed [with absolute trust and confidence in Him and in the truth of His deity], and I am persuaded [beyond any doubt] that He is able to guard that which I have entrusted to Him until that day [when I stand before Him].” (2Tim.1:12,Amp)


Transformed Out of Hopelessness

Do not adopt the world’s sense of hopelessness. Their hopelessness does not take God’s love or miracles into account… but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Do not be held in the present circumstances that try to hold you in their grasp. Get into the Word and get God’s picture of things. Rom.12:2,TPT—“Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.”

Dreams – A Communication Tool Within Ourselves

Kathy Gabler—Dreams can also be a communication tool that is a disclosure within ourselves, between our subconscious and conscious mind.  These dreams spring from our senses, concerns, questions, thoughts, choices, emotions, desires and imaginings, “dreams which you cause to be dreamed” (Jer.29:8) or they spring from memories, beliefs, values, worries, fears, stresses, etc., “dreams come when there are many cares” (Ecc. 5:3).  A common disclosure dream is that you are back in school, but can’t find your class, or you didn’t bring your homework, or you forgot your clothes!  In either case, the disclosure of what is going on inside is that you are dealing with feelings of being unequipped or inadequate or you are fearing failure or humiliation, etc.  Though these dreams may not be a telegram from God, they can still be sanctioned by a God-purpose for our life. These type dreams can help us “work out our own salvation,” by revealing issues that are causing dysfunction or lack or sickness. DVP2021 FB Coffee

Making Changes

msg-looking-upMelissa — We/YOU carry what our nation and the world needs, and you can change things from where you are at this moment. God used a remnant of people time and time again to make big changes. He’s God, a tiny dose of His power can turn this thing upside-down! Our new motto for the middle of 2021 and beyond:  “As goes the remnant, so goes the nation”.   (Melissa Gabler is speaking on “An Ear to Hear — A Prophetic Lifestyle” at the DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY CONFERENCE 2021 at Grace Church Willis.

The Scale God is Speaking On

Prophetic voices are voices that speak on the same scale God is speaking on.  We should be speaking the heart of God which brings about those things which man cannot accomplish. If we speak for God we speak in “giant” language, not “ant” language like those who have adapted their thinking to the present world system (Rom.12:2). In many cases we have learned to talk like the Egyptians and the Babylonians whose gods had moral shortcomings and fickle emotions like the people who served them. Prophetic voices have God’s perspective on what is and what shall be and refuse to be bound by the limitations of the poverty of the human experience.

Agreeing With God to Change Situations

Kathy Gabler — God does not expose people to a troubling dream so they can be worried and tormented or start grieving early.  Intercessors must shake off the emotions of the experience to be able to agree with God and change the situation.  The biggest mistake with intercessory insights is the lack of follow-through by the dreamer, and that is usually because:  (1.) they do not realize it is a call to intercede,   (2.) they fail to accept the mission because of a sense of inadequacy or being unqualified as an intercessor   (3.) they stay in the emotion of the dream rather than taking a position of authority and agreement with God to break an assignment or   DVP2021 Promo Card(4.) they go into panic over timing, considering it a done-deal already.

An Angelic Company

Melissa — Let me offer a bit of strategy for the remainder of 2021. We will realize we have massive amounts of help from a God-created angelic company.  It’s time to be aware that God has created an angelic army doing His will on this earth right now.  It’s time we realized we are intended to network with them because they know our destiny and it is their job to help us get there.  Just like Elisha’s servant in 2 Kings 6, it is time for our eyes to be opened to this partnership God intended.  At the end of 2021 we will look back in amazement at what He has done and where we are. So, go ahead and ANTICIPATE the inevitable, supernatural intervention of God!

Our God is Greater

As the people of God assemble today may they realize the challenges that face them, and the generation to come, are not overwhelming giants and the people of God are not inferior grasshoppers. But the people of God are “gonna-take-that-mountain” people who know that their Lord is greater than any assembled army that rises against them. Isa.41:10,Amp—“‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’”


The Giant/Grasshopper Challenge

We live in a nation that must be turned to God. There are many difficult nation-affecting challenges before us and the coming generation. Every challenge and difficulty that we do not meet and overcome in our generation is weight that gets added to the load of difficulties that our children will have to deal with, and that is added on top of the ones they will have to handle in their own generation. Those challenges require much more than a viewpoint which expresses a belief that they will be met and adequately handled by divine fiat in a time period that is yet to come. The Israelite generation exiting Egypt viewed the challenges before them as giants and themselves as grasshoppers (Num.13:33). The giant/grasshopper mindset was not a Promised-Land-possessor mindset. After the giant/grasshopper mindset generation died off, there finally arose fathers (Josh.14:10-13) with a gonna-take-that-mountain mindset that produced a take-the-land-mentality generation—not a generation of mere survivors, but one of possessors.DVP Promo EarHear_250

Want to Age Out or Purpose Out?

Kathy — God didn’t put you on this earth to “age” out.
He put you here to “purpose” out!

Trust is not Impossible to Live

Melissa — Trust is a principle that is not impossible to live.  It’s a choice.  The only things that stand in the way are experience and lies, both of which have to bow to the truth.  Sometimes we just have to start by giving up increments of concern to the faithfulness of God.  It really is okay to let go.  For some of us that is harder than it sounds, but the depth of breath experienced on the other side is extraordinary.  We are in a season of miracles, signs, and wonders.  Dare to be a part of that by trusting the Trustworthy One.  “How blessed and greatly favored is the man who trusts You.” (Ps.84:12)
(DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY Conference Sept.10-12,2021)


September is for …

September is for dancing and praising before the Lord for the defeat of the enemies of His purposes in us and in our nation, even before He shows the manifestation of the victory before the eyes of the world.  Deut.28:7,Amp— “The Lord will cause the enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way, but flee before you seven ways.”  Ex.15:20-21,Amp—“Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron [and Moses], took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women followed her with timbrels and dancing. 21 Miriam answered them, “Sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously and is highly exalted; The horse and its rider He has hurled into the sea.”

God’s Kingdom in Evidence

Kathy — As I searched the scriptures, I found the Kingdom of God (or Kingdom of Heaven) could refer to three things: 1) The place where God dwells and reigns eternally, 2) God’s AUTHORITY & POWER ruling on earth, and 3) the company of people who have submitted their lives to God’s authority, both now and eternally.  Jesus preached and emphasized the second aspect, God’s AUTHORITY and POWER ruling on earth.  That is why He said to some as He healed them, “The Kingdom has come upon you.”  The Kingdom of God is in evidence wherever God’s AUTHORITY and POWER are manifested on earth.

Don’t Ignore the Prophetic

Melissa — “The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord hath made both of them.” (Prov.20:12)  We are all capable of living a prophetic lifestyle without being a Prophet.  Sometimes we train ourselves to ignore the Prophetic Lifestyle because we don’t want to be weird. This really is an epic life we are meant to live. Don’t ignore it. This life is meant to be epic! — (Melissa Gabler is speaking on “The Prophetic Lifestyle” Sept.11 at the DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY CONFERENCE 2021 at Grace Church Willis.

Endued Beyond Limitations

As the people of God assemble today may they realize that the potential that is in them is not merely human capacities but the impartation of Jehovah’s enablements, His compassion and His purposes. We are endued with gifts and abilities that are able to redemptively work beyond human limitations. Eph.3:20,TPT—“Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.”


Safety of Our Children

We are concerned for our children today, Heavenly Father. We pray that, where earthly fathers have failed, You reach out Your protecting Hand and speak with Your guiding Voice to the children and Youth of our nation. We pray that Your Presence would be known on our school campuses through the believers that are on site and that Your Holy Spirit would strengthen and give wisdom to the teachers and school officials for the appropriate education and safety of our children.


Snake on a Stick

Kathy — We need an Awakening as badly as Judah did in 2Kings 17. They had forgotten their God. They had forsaken their one true God and even closed the door to the temple and nailed it shut. In the next chapter, 2Kings 18, Hezekiah became king of Judah and Awakening began. Hezekiah was AWARE they needed God and He took action to begin sanctifying the nation. He destroyed the local shrines, tore down the images of foreign gods, cut down the sacred pole for worshiping the goddess of sex and fertility and he also smashed the bronze snake Moses had made in the wilderness. Remember when fiery serpents were biting and killing them in the camp? God told Moses to put a brass serpent on a pole so people could see it and be healed. That was a one-time obedience that led to the intervention of God for their nation. Keeping that pole as a testimony from history to teach their children about God was understandable, but sticking that pole among the idols they were worshiping and making sacrifices to, dishonored both God and the acts of God in their behalf. That generation had to have cooked the books (unethically change the meaning) of their own history to justify worshiping a SNAKE on a STICK. Let’s bring that home to our present darkness. How much have crooked people and entities cooked the books in this present time and distorted the Rule of Law and guidelines as they deliberately try to change our history. They fully intend to redefine who we are and distort the God-purpose and destiny within us. We need an Awakening to stop the madness in both the Church and the Nation! We need to follow Hezekiah’s lead in such a time as this! He made the God-changes that were in his reach! He could reach their idols and he tore them down . . . and it PLEASED God! Of course, it didn’t necessarily please everybody else because Awakening always upsets the norms.
