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

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.”

Prophetic Living by the Spirit

MSG_Grace_May2014Melissa —I’m going to address the Prophetic Lifestyle.  Let me start by saying this is a lifestyle for all of us to live not just those called to be a Prophet. This is my definition of the Prophetic Lifestyle: It Is LIVING BY THE SPIRIT and sensing, hearing and seeing God’s intention about the here and now, and what is to come. It’s also about carrying that God-intention to its manifestation AND letting that intention do its work in us.

Consider Dreams Through Filters

Having dreams and visions does not make anyone more spiritual or more Dreamsdiscerning or more valuable to the Kingdom of God. Neither are dreams and visions a license to contradict or disregard the Word of God or the character of God or the counsel of the godly. In fact, dreams and visions should be considered through just such godly filters as we search for their interpretation and purpose.(Prov.11:14) — Kathy will be speaking at DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY 2019 <<<>>> Sept.13-15.


Take Hold of Plan A

This is the time to loose your grasp on plan B and take hold, with both hands, of Cross roads with plan A plan B road signsplan A — Father’s original intent for your life. If your answer is hidden, ask God what the right question is in this moment.  Ask Him what, in you, might be hindering the answer.  Ask Him what you need to know today.  He’s got plans for you, He is not into punishing you.  His M.O. is all about forgiveness, redemption, relationship, and promotion, all for His glory. Hey, if He tells you it’s simply about timing then it’s really that simple.  His timing is perfect.  Look at the birth and life of Samuel.  Perseverance is key!  It’s going to be an amazing time on into next year.  Get ready for your answers.  –Melissa Gabler

The Same Scale as God

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.

Early in the twentieth century aged plodders were still plowing with mules while young women were flying solo coast to coast. The aged plodders were using language like “plow”, “mule”, “harness”, “one acre”, “man wasn’t meant to fly”; and young women were using language like “magneto”, “propeller”, “rudder”, “elevator”, “altitude, “three thousand miles” – words the old plodders could not even define. The old plowmen would hold tightly to their plows, look up at the new-fangled flying machines and sadly shake their heads at what they perceived was utter nonsense. 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. The only word God will get into agreement with is His Word which is more than adequate in any age.  (Marty will be speaking at DVP2018 Sept.14-16)

Prophetic Lifestyle For Today

The prophetic lifestyle opens opportunities, timing, and connections. Opportunities: having the ears to hear to be at the right place at the right time for yourself and others. Timing: none of us understand the tim- ing of God because He is working on so many levels. It takes a prophetic lifestyle to see beyond the limited vision of our normal dimensions. It can keep you sane where timing is concerned. Connection: Brings lives together for God team-ups, projects, events, etc. We were never meant to do life alone (1 Corinthians 12:20-21). In this day and age, this way of life is a total necessity for the body of Christ.—Melissa Gabler  (Melissa will be speaking and leading worship at Dreams Visions Prophecy 2018 Sept.14-16.)  All info: martygabler.com/dreams-visions-prophecy/

The Dream Tool

I know many religious people put dreams and visions and prophecy in the category with fortune tellers and witches and psychics.  However, it was God that gave man the dream tool and it was God who promised to pour out His Spirit with dreams and visions and prophecy following.  Several times in both the Old and New Testament, God communicated His plans, instructions and insights through dreams, visions, prophetic words and supernatural experiences.  And there are numerous biographies of godly men and women with such experiences throughout history since the New Testament times.  If we throw away the real with the counterfeit or throw away all truth because some truth has been abused, we are robbing ourselves.—(Kathy Gabler)

September is For Hearing God

The month of SEPTEMBER IS FOR HEARING GOD in moments and in settings we have not cognizantly expected to hear Him in in the past. We shall hear Him and know how to best relate to people, know which path to take and be able to discern the times that we may act expeditiously.  “If you go the wrong way—to the right or to the left—you will hear a voice behind you. It will say, ‘This is the right way. You should go this way.’” (Isa.30:21, ICB)

Hearing God in Dreams Visions and Prophecy will be addressed by Marty, Kathy and Melissa Gabler at DVP2018  Sept.14-16. For detailed information CLICK HERE.

September is for Tuning In

The month of SEPTEMBER IS FOR TUNING IN. We will be tuning in to Holy Spirit’s frequency to pray more efficiently and to discern and to release words of knowledge and words of wisdom and counsel. We will be able to tune in because storms of life are passing that have, heretofore, interrupted communication from Father’s heart to ours. We will discover that Father is always attempting to redemptively communicate with us and that we are most welcome to tune in to His frequency of peace and wisdom.  (Prov.4:20, Msg) ”…listen well to my words; tune your ears to my voice.”

Safety in Counselors

Safety is not in the multitude of prophesies and visions and revelations. Safety is in the multitude of counselors (Prov.11:14). There are “sheep” who don’t believe they need the flock and certainly don’t need a shepherd because they have a multitude of visions and prophecies. We call those sheep “wolf food”.

The Soul Can Initiate Dreams

The soul can initiate dreams, pulling from the senses, emotions, imagination, stresses, thoughts and experiences.  God has given us the dream tool, not only as a direct line to hear from Him but also as a means of revealing our own issues to help us resolve them. When dealing with soul NightCloudsMoondreams, it can be easy to miss the point and dismiss an uncomfortable dream rather than benefit from it and get to godly  resolve!  We have all had strange dreams where we went to the breakfast table feeling guilty.  Have you ever awakened with a load of guilt left by a dream?  For example, a common soul dream is dreaming you are back in school and can’t find your class or your homework.  It could be that your current situations or activities are reminding your soul of the same feelings of those embarrassing, immature, insecure years.  Or you could be glimpsing something in your soul that was never resolved  from back there in that stage of maturing and training. Or you could be feeling unequipped or fearing failure in your future plans.  In any case, there is no benefit to carrying that guilt around the rest of the day.

Rehearsals Through Dreams

I believe God sometimes calls us to rehearsals through dreams.  The Spirit of God can enlarge our vision and plant hope in our hearts as we sleep.  These dreams can become un-carnal weapons in our arsenals.
WalkWaterDreamI’ve heard many dreams of people ministering under a tremendous anointing or doing supernatural exploits under a heavy anointing.  Others have experienced the powerful presence of God in a dream that is beyond anything they’ve known.  Still others have dreamed of powerful exploits at work or dreamed of the elation of great accomplishments in their community.  Some have literally experienced such dreams and then had them come to pass.  Others are left to wonder the purpose of such dream experiences.  I do not believe God-sent dreams are wasted or without purpose.
Such dreams build confidence in us, like a play rehearsal builds confidence that we know what to do when the time comes.  These dreams can influence our desires and goals and set us upon God-ordained pursuits, provoking us beyond hindrances and limitations in life.  They can be equipping dreams, opening us to the newness of obediences ahead.  I believe rehearsal dreams are sometimes the confirmation or Amen ahead of time, so we will be assured something is God when we get there.  After all, direction is easy to recognize when we have already rehearsed the path in dreams.

Confronting Elements of Dreams With Prayer

MoonCloudsDreamTo open the understanding of the symbolism of Buddha to the boy who had the dream, I explained that people who believe in Buddha believe that you have to give offerings to “make merit.”  That means they believe you earn favor from Buddha because of giving gifts and behaving a particular way. You get merits for good behavior so that you will deserve acceptance and favor and protection from Buddha.  That element of the dream revealed that his friend was upset either because she had messed up or fears she will mess up and God won’t bless her or accept her or protect her, etc.  That misbelief that her acceptance and righteousness are based on her performance has her troubled and fearing failure. Understanding the conflict in his friend’s heart gave him strategy for intercession in her behalf.  Just encouraging him to realize that the Holy Spirit will bring him strategic dreams about people and situations so he can confront it with prayer is an awesome awareness for his future and fulfillment of his purpose.
