PROPHECY & TEACHINGS
by Pastor Jeff Sherk
L’shannah Tovah, Happy New Year, Happy Rosh Hashanah, Happy Yom Teruah, Happy Day of Shouting, Happy Feast of Trumpets and Happy Opening of the Gates… the day that no one knows is here!
The moon was sighted in Israel today (it’s already night time in Israel), so tonight (Monday) from sunset until Tuesday night at sunset marks the Feast of Trumpets.
If you did not already know, the Feast of Trumpets is the only one of the seven Feasts (Leviticus 23) that occurs at the beginning of the month on the visible sighting of the new moon. And because the cycle of the moon is between 28 and 29 days, you usually do not know whether the moon will be visible on the first night or the second night, and hence the name “the day that no one knows“.
Orthodox Judaism however, does not follow the visible sighting of the moon anymore, but instead simply sets a fixed date on the calendar, which is why most Jewish people would have celebrated last night and today.

This morning when praying, I felt the Holy Spirit speaking to me about the people who are in need and suffering. Especially the persecuted bride.
I felt the winds of change starting to blow. They became stronger and stronger. But not destructive like a mighty hand of mercy was guiding these winds. Change is coming it will be a great and wonderful new world for those who are walking with the Lord, destructive for those of a rebellious spirit.
“My Father my King” I prayed what is your will in this vision.
“Sow into the wind, sow your seed into the wind they are the four winds of my Holy Spirit, and watch where I take your seed, I will deposit it into the ground that is ready to receive it, and produce the end time harvest”. Trust in me with all your heart, body, mind and spirit, and I will renew and restore all that has been stolen. Look after my bride, and I will surely provide in abundance from my storehouse.”
I immediately sent a missions offering into Forerunners.
I then saw a vision of our dear Missionaries that are suffering in Kenya, I felt the winds that were hot and destructive, turn cooler and healing so I prayed the seed would be blown swiftly to that area to be planted and the Kingdom of YHVH established in Kenya. Watch and see the great things of YHVH become visible to our eyes.
There was an overwhelming presence of the Holy Spirit in the room when I sent this, I have tears of joy welling up inside of me such joy I cannot explain. I only know that I know that the Kingdom of God is at hand for all those that have eyes to see and ears to hear and a heart of Flesh like your Saviours that will step into the things of the Deep calling of YHVH.
The deep spiritual things of YHVH are about to burst forth into the desert areas of Forerunner Ministries. Prophet Mike you have been so faithful, you have fallen on the Rock in repentance our Father and King YHVH has heard. His Kingdom is now at hand for all who have asked to be cleansed of the old man nature, and have put on the robes of rightousness. Call out to the Deep, call out and YHVH will show you great and mighty things of which you knowest not, but will be taught for the Glory of God for such a time as this.
Praise you Lord, you are our all in all. We wait and call out to the deep things of the spirit. We will no longer be spectators but participants with our Lord.

Prophetic Word Released within the week of the May 28th- June 1st 2012 for Michael Petro
For the Lord would say to you in this hour that that which has tried to overtake you that which has come to rob to kill and destroy shall be restored unto you, even greater. For you have been tested and tried and so too has the Spirit and power and principality of the woman called Jezabel, the lord is saying that the work that she has tried to endure and the havoc that she has tried to create in your ministry, even the takeover and to anillate and bring you down has finished, the lord is saying it is finished!
The ” Flaming Fires” are burning up that which is of me and that which is not of me says the Lord and with it you will see her work come to nothing….into dispensation for all is being revealed in this hour all is being revealed. The Lord is saying there have been many who have separated themselves from you as the purging fires have taken effect though i have tried you and tested you i will restore you into my perfect plan and purpose even in Australia once again.
Its called ” A REFORMED CHURCH A PURGED CHURCH A APOSTOLIC MOVEMENT “…..those ones are gathering in this hour they are being called for such a time as this.
With the “Fires” i have and am finally separating the ” TRUE and THE FALSE CHURCH”, with the “FIRES” i am bringing restitution and restoration. ” I am the God of restitution, the movement of Apostolic ships is called “REFORMED…REFORMATION”…..hold on.
The floods are about to come and many are not ready, but again i say to you…..i am moving you with an Apostolic Company…..
Religon is being burned…at the cross….seperation, dispensation….seperation….dispensation!
NOW IS THE TIME NOW IS THE TIME!
The Lord gave me this word for Michael in the last few days, i believe that all injustice will be made clear and he will see restoration…..God is clearly talking about the Apostolic Ships Of Reformation Birthing, that all that we have seen is nothing compared to what is about to come. We are to stand stronger than ever!
Most of the Church is not ready for this movement, but God has prepared those that will move as ICE BREAKERS with FIRE in this season. He is a God of ” RECOMPENSE”, His name is YESHUA!
The Lord is bringing together a company of people by his spirit and every thing will “BOW” to the name of JESUS and every tounge will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD!
The Apostolic ships will withstand the floods that are coming, many lives will be lost, though many will be saved. I will make those ships train and equip many to go out and see many others saved said the Lord.
This is the hour of “FIRE” and “WATER”! – The baptism of The HOLY GHOST is coming as it was in the time of Pentecost and the FORUNNERS are waiting with their “TORCHES”, to be lit and to run with “REVIVAL TRANSFORMING FIRE” in this nation of Australia and the nations.
Now is the time!!!
THIS IS THE HOUR!
It is with some excitement that the leadership of Forerunner Ministries International announce a time of healing and restoration; with deliverance for many to follow hot on the heels of a fourteen day fast. Please read the post under ‘Meetings and Events’ and the teaching on ‘Fasting’ to bring you up to date on what is happening.
As many may know, there have been many problems for this ministry over the last year; especially over the last couple of months. However, the ministry is very much alive and well and is looking forward to powering on into all that God has declared for it in 2012.
Prophet Michael Petro has taken a break from leadership and teaching duties for a season. He needs your prayers and support while he seeks to re-centre God in his life and to receive healing. A leadership team has been put in place to oversee the running and teaching within the ministry and it is wonderful to see people standing to support Prophet Michael in this time.
Our prayers go out to all that have been involved in the ministry, some for many years, but that have now left. We seek reconciliation; as indeed all Christians are called to a ministry of reconciliation in accordance to 2 Corinthians 5:18. This statement is not an effort to simply sweep away all that has happened. We honestly and humbly seek forgiveness for anyone that has been hurt and give a whole-hearted commitment to see that things are made right in a true and God ordained way.
For many years, this ministry has taught that the Revelation of God’s Word comes to expose those areas of our lives that need to then be washed in the water of that very revelation. Jesus is to return for a Bride that is without spot, blemish or wrinkle. And this Bride has come into this glorious condition by having gone through the cleansing of the word; Eph. 5:26-27. So we all need to ask ourselves this question:
“If nothing is ever exposed, how can it ever be dealt with?”
Please also remember, that God exposes all things in our lives for that very purpose; to deal with them in a Godly, Scriptural manner. Not so that we can point fingers and condemn people because of what has been exposed. Only God has the right to condemn those who fail to deal with their issues, and only God can judge His servants; Romans 14:4.
Sadly, many of us see the exposure of sin and bad behaviour in a wrong light. It is important to remember that it is exposed for the purpose of bringing it into the light and having it removed by the laser intensity of spiritual surgery. Forgiveness, acceptance, understanding and love are the characteristics that make the difference between those who seek to heal and restore or those who seek to pull down and destroy.
The only way that we can walk in the spirit is to honestly and fully face whatever the Word exposes in our lives, defeating these mindsets and putting on the mind of Christ. That is why Christians are called to have love for one another, remove the specks from their own eyes and to even die for one another.
We must always walk in the truth and faith of Romans 8:1;
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
This truth applies to all that engage actively in the process of dealing with self.
Blessings to all.

In the past, I’ve done my share of fasting, although admittedly not as much as I should have. One of the hurdles I always had a hard time overcoming was that I somehow felt like I was trying to negotiate a deal with the Lord, and that I was saying “God, I’m going to fast, so what are you going to give me in return?” I knew that God didn’t work on a barter system like that, but I also knew that scripture was full of examples of the power of fasting in many of the prophets and disciples lives.
So what was my problem? Why was I thinking the way I was about fasting? Well it boiled down to the fact that I had never really ‘searched the matter out’ for myself, and my own misconceptions (my misunderstanding or my sin) was leading me to this false feeling about ‘bartering’ with the Lord.
John 8:32 says “… you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Well, searching out the truth about fasting has certainly set me free from feeling like I am playing “Let’s make a deal!” with the Lord!
I just finished reading “The Hidden Power of Prayer & Fasting by Mahesh Chavda (Destiny Image Publishers ISBN 13: 978-0-7684-2410-2)” and it was a great help in bringing clarity in understanding the subject of fasting from a spiritual perspective. Let’s take a look at some scriptures, so you can understand more clearly as well.
The first thing I want you to see in Psalms 35 and Ezra 8, is that fasting is a way to humble ourselves before the Lord:
Psalms 35:13. But as for me, when they were sick, My clothing was sackcloth; I humbled myself with fasting; And my prayer would return to my own heart.
Ezra 8:21. Then I proclaimed a fast there at the river of Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God, to seek from Him the right way for us and our little ones and all our possessions.
Why is it important to humble ourselves? Because God says he will guide you and teach you His way:
Psalms 25:9. The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way.
He says He will give you Grace:
Proverbs 3:34. Surely He scorns the scornful, But gives grace to the humble.
He says He will give you wisdom:
Proverbs 11:2. When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom.
Jesus says you will be the greatest in the kingdom of heaven:
Matthew 18:4. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Those are all pretty significant reasons to humble yourself. Do a search on the word ‘humble’ in scripture, and you will see that are many more as well.
You probably don’t need scripture to tell you that fasting can make you weak and feeble, but here it is anyway:
Psalms 109:24. My knees are weak through fasting, And my flesh is feeble from lack of fatness.
Why is this significant? The Apostle Paul tells us what happens when we are weak:
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
So again, God promises us His grace, which will both strengthen us and perfect us.
If you read back up in Ezra 8:21 again, it tells you the reason why they were fasting… they were seeking the right way… they were looking for an answer. Daniel says the same thing:
Daniel 9:3. Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes.
So fasting is way to get prayers answered!
POWER TO CAST OUT DEMONS
In Matthew 17:14-21 we have the story of an epileptic boy which the disciples could not cure. Jesus tells them the solution though:
Matthew 17:21. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”
So Jesus Himself tells us that prayer and fasting is the only way we will be able to remove some demons from our own lives and from others lives.
NO MORE BARTERING
So now back to my original problem of always feeling like I was saying “God I’m going to fast, so what are you going to give me in return?” The revelation from all this, is that you don’t need to barter with God because He already promised you these things!
God says, “If you fast, then I will guide you, teach you, give you wisdom, grace, strength, answer your prayers and give you the power to cast out demons!” WOW… that’s amazing! He is a God of His Word, so if He said it, He will do it!!
But be warned… there is a right way and a wrong way to fast! In Isaiah 58:3-4 God says that their fasting is unacceptable and He will not hear their voice. But starting in verse 5, He sets some guidelines on proper fasting methods, and IF we observe them, THEN in verse 8 He says “your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.”
So let’s fast with our hearts set on seeing transformation in our lives, as well as the lives of others, and in seeing a fulfillment of Luke 4:18-19:
Luke 4:18-19 18 “THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE HAS ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR; HE HAS SENT ME TO HEAL THE BROKENHEARTED, TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET AT LIBERTY THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED; 19 TO PROCLAIM THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD.”
P.S. – Below I have attached another article which looks at fasting from the natural perspective. I definitely recommend you read it as well before starting to fast!
FASTING – A NATURAL PERSPECTIVE
by Falcon Blanco
What is Fasting?
Fasting is a period of abstinence from all food or specific items. Fluids are consumed in sufficient quantity to satisfy thirst and physiologic requirements. During the absence of food, the body will systematically cleanse itself of everything except vital tissue. Starvation will occur only when the body is forced to use vital tissue to survive. Although protein is being used by the body during the fast, a person fasting even 40 days on water will not suffer a deficiency of protein, vitamins, minerals or fatty acids. In the breakdown of unhealthy cells, all essential substances are used and conserved in a most extraordinary manner. There is an unwarranted fear of fasting that strength diminishes from the catabolism of proteins from muscle fibers. Even during long fasts, the number of muscle fibers remains the same. Although the healthy cells may be reduced in size and strength for a time, they remain perfectly sound.
A. J. Carlson, Professor of Physiology, University of Chicago, states that a healthy, well-nourished man can live from 50 to 75 days without food, provided he is not exposed to harsh elements or emotional stress. Human fat is valued at 3,500 calories per pound. Each extra pound of fat will supply enough calories for one day of hard physical labor. Ten pounds of fat are equal to 35,000 calories! Most of us have sufficient reserves, capable of sustaining us for many weeks.
Rest is understood to be a big factor in enhancing recovery, as it is when the body is at rest that it is able to direct the most energy towards the various chemical and mechanical processes of detoxification. When fasting, a person experiences recovery at a rate that is swifter than normal. He is ridding his body of toxins and excesses; allowing the body to use its own wisdom to healthfully reorganize itself from the atomic level. As the toxic load is reduced, the functioning of every cell is enhanced. In the same way that vital nerve energy is accumulated during a night’s sleep, the faster builds nerve energy through rest, sleep, and detoxification.
The human body has many ordinary modes of achieving elimination: the liver, lungs, kidneys, colon, etc. When these are overloaded, the body will resort to “extra ordinary” methods of elimination: boils, mucous and other discharges, sweats, vomiting, diarrhea, and many others. Should elimination be impossible or uneconomical of body energy, the toxic overload will go into storage forms in the joints, vessels, muscles, organs; almost any tissue in the body. While fasting, the body is highly conservative of its energy and resources. During this deep and profound rest, toxin intake and production are reduced to a minimum while autolysins and elimination proceed unchecked. Anabolic processes such as tissue and bone healing also proceed at a maximal rate during the fast.
In the body, the first stage of cleansing removes large quantities of waste matter and digestive residues. The first few days of a fast can be rough due to the quantity of waste passing into the blood stream. The tongue becomes coated and the breath foul as the body excretes waste through every opening. After the third day of the fast, there is little desire for food. The second stage is the cleansing of mucous, fat, diseased and dying cells, and the more easily removed toxins. As the fast continues, the cleansing process becomes more thorough. The last stage is the cleansing of toxins that have been accumulating in your cellular tissue from birth, and the microscopic tubes that carry vital elements to the brain. Cleansing of the last layer is only possible through a combination of juice fasting, water fasting, and a healthy diet high in raw foods. To overcome a severe disease like cancer, it is important to continue through a series of fasts, to the point where the full scouring action of catabolism removes the disease from the tissue.
During extended fasts the body removes: dead, dying and diseased cells; unwanted fatty tissue, trans-fatty acids, hardened coating of mucus on the intestinal wall; toxic waste matter in the lymphatic system and bloodstream; toxins in the spleen, liver and kidney; mucus from the lungs and sinuses, imbedded toxins in the cellular fibers and deeper organ tissues; deposits in the microscopic tubes responsible for nourishing brain cells and excess cholesterol.
Nearly everyone who fasts, discovers the same thing, that when they fast they actually have no hunger and more energy than they normally have. It is indeed liberating to find out that if we let go and trust that we will be taken care of. Fasting is the simplest, easiest and most effective way to find out that we do indeed have the power and freedom to heal and take control of our bodies.
Probably the most important reason is that the body uses quite a bit of energy to digest food, and when fasting this energy becomes available for other uses. In the fasting state, the body will scour for dead cells, damaged tissues, fatty deposits, tumors, abscesses, all of which are burned for fuel or expelled as waste. The elimination of these obstructions restores the immune system functionality and metabolic process to an optimum state. Fasting restores good digestion and elimination, and peristaltic action is quickened. Fasting allows a deep, physiological rest of the digestive organs, and the energy saved goes into self-healing and self-repairing. By eliminating obstructions, by cleansing, detoxification, and purifying the intestines, the blood, and the cells, we can overcome many of our physical ills or handicaps as well as getting a boost in energy. Fasting not only removes obstructions and helps the body to heal itself, it is also rejuvenating and life-extending. These resulting benefits can have lasting affects in your mental and emotional health.
The other very important aspect is that your self-awareness will be elevated. If you are sick and depressed, then this might be the most important thing you can try in your healing program, because it gives you immediately an energy boost and increased awareness which might allow that you see things more clearly, allowing you the first step out of your sickness and onto the path of recovery. While fasting you become more aware of your body process, your life and with everything you are doing. It becomes a period where you can evaluate all that you’re doing more objectively, and you naturally have more time for contemplation because you aren’t using time amassing, preparing, eating, eliminating and cleaning up all which is used to prepare food. You become more aware of what your body likes and doesn’t like when you start to eat again. You gain self-confidence in your ability to control your life process, to set a goal and carry out an intention.
Fasting enhances mental acuity
Perhaps the most instructive testimony as to the acuteness of mental powers during fasting comes from Dr. Herbert Shelton who supervised the fasting of more than 40,000 people over a period of fifty years. His message is that the freer the body is of toxic materials flowing through the blood and lymphatic system, the clearer is the ability to think.
These facts are due to physiological causes. Large amounts of blood and nervous energies have to be sent to the digestive organs to digest a meal. If these energies are not required there, they may be used by the brain for better thinking. This increase in mental acuity doesn’t usually happen until after the first few days of a fast, because the body is busy cleaning out excess toxins and substances and so the first few days can be a period of depression, with headaches and various pains as this process is underway. This makes the first stage of fasting difficult but after the body has thrown off it’s load of toxins, then the brain is fed by a cleaner bloodstream and the mental powers and clarity of thought are extraordinarily increased and the other senses also become more acute.
One’s mind becomes clearer and one’s ability to think and solve intricate problems is enhanced. One is simply more alert, and one’s mind seems to open up into new fields. The mental and physical senses are heightened, and often there can be a feeling of euphoria, especially during longer fasts. Some, for the first time, will experience emotional stability. The reasons for this are multifold – the elimination of the emotional dependence on food, exclusion of stimulating foods like caffeine, processed sugars, recreational drugs, tobacco and trans-fatty acids, all of which can have a devastating effect on delicate emotions.
Dr. Ehret stated an amazing fact at the turn of the 20th century. He said that, for a water fast to awaken the higher mind functions, it had to be longer than 21 days. Fasting has a history of awakening intuitive senses, creativity, and deeper spiritual questions in those with enough determination to get past the 21 day mark.
During a fast, a metamorphosis occurs. The body undergoes a tearing down and rebuilding of damaged materials. For this reason, fasting is famous for its ability to rejuvenate and give the body a more youthful tone. Why does fasting have such a powerful effect in healing the body? Fasting dissolves diseased cells in a systematic manner, leaving healthy tissue. The result is a thorough cleansing of the tube, membrane and cellular structures. There is a remarkable redistribution of nutrients in the fasting body. It hangs on to precious minerals and vitamins while catabolizing on old tissue, toxins and inferior materials.
Each cell of your body is a complete living entity with its own metabolism. It needs a constant supply of oxygen and sufficient nourishment. When due to nutritional deficiencies, sluggish metabolism, sedentary life, overeating and consequent poor digestion and assimilation of food, lack of fresh air and sufficient exercise and rest, our cells are deprived… they start to degenerate… the normal process of cell replacement and rebuilding slows down and your body starts to grow old, its resistance to disease will diminish and you become ‘sick’.
Animals will naturally fast when they are sick or injured, and when we are ill, our hunger diminishes. If we get out of the way and allow nature to take its course, we will find that we can heal from any problem. Since the dawn of recorded time, in fact since before the word “doctor” came into existence, priests provided sanctuaries where people could go to fast. Whereas modern medical practitioners admit that they have no cures, only drugs that mask the symptoms while causing yet other symptoms to appear.
“I had a medical practice for 20 years in NYC, supervised hundreds of long fasts, and I found that the physical healing or weight loss was but a pleasant side effect. What really happened is that the person got in touch with their higher self, their true self, and came to the experience that healing can take place at every level, simply by letting go and allowing Mother Nature to do her work.” – Dr. Rai Casey
Fasting has been beneficial for these conditions:
Although fasting is not recommended in every situation, (cancer of the liver is one instance where fasting is contraindicated), in many situations fasting is the only known solution. Fasting has been beneficial for arthritis, asthma, high blood pressure, lupus, chronic fatigue, colitis, Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, spastic colon, irritable bowel, cases of paralysis, neuritis, neuralgia, neuroses, and mental illness as well as many others. Fasting will also break down tumors and for this reason, many have overcome cancer with fasting.
Fasting decreases dependency on authorities
How many of us believe that when we get sick, that a doctor is going to save us from pain and death? We just assume that the technology is going to be able to repair us when we break down, by giving us a pill, a treatment or a surgery. We are so alienated from our bodies that we think that a doctor knows more about us than we do. The reality is that doctor’s don’t have the cures that we need, what is offered by the traditional system of healers is only the possibility to treat our symptoms never being able to cure us or root out the cause. When we take these kinds of treatments to suppress our symptoms then that cause, which is the underlying reason we are sick, goes unattended, then in fact our illness continues to grow. We will never be healthy until we take responsibility for our own health . We need to stop blaming the outside for making us sick, whether it is corporations, a person, our immediate environment or a government, and to recognize instead that our sickness is a symptom telling us something is inside needs to be addressed. For sure there are outside influences that we can’t control, but there is much that we can control by taking responsibility for ourselves and working to change our habits.
Benefits of Fasting
Mental clarity is improved and brain fog is lifted.
Rapid, safe weight loss is achieved without flabbiness
The nervous system is balanced
Energy level and sensory perception is increased. The longer the fast, the bigger increase in energy and vitality. You normally need less sleep.
Organs are revitalized
Cellular biochemistry is harmonized
The skin becomes silky, soft, and sensitive
There is greater ease of movement
Breathing becomes fuller, freer and deeper
The digestive system is rejuvenated and becomes more effective; the peristaltic action of the intestines (the cause of a natural bowel movement) is stronger after fasting.
Fasting retrains your tasting sense back to more healthy food as acute sensitivity is restored.
Fasting can increase confidence in our ability to have control over our lives and our appetite, and that our body is self-regulating and a self-healing organism capable or establishing balance when given the possibility to do so.
Normal metabolic and cell oxygenation are restored.
Detoxification – as soon as the body realizes that it’s fasting it will begin to eliminate those things that cause disease, such as fat cells, arterial cholesterol plaques, mucus, tumors, stored up worries and emotions.
One Day Fast
One way to start is to fast one day, working towards fasting regularly, one day per week or for longer periods of time. You can fast from all food, or only from solid food. You can choose a one day fast with only:
- fresh fruit juice
- fresh vegetable juice
- raw fruit
- raw vegetables
Avoiding during the fast:
cooked vegetables, cooked whole grains, whole grain flour products, bread, pasta, etc. vegetable protein, soy products, etc.
dairy: milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, butter, eggs, meats, fast food, junk food, prepared foods, etc., chemicals: sugar, caffeine, artificial flavoring, sweeteners, etc.
Not to consume any drugs, nicotine and alcohol during fast should be clear.
You can fast from 1 to 40 days. Try to drink 2 liters of water or more per day.
The ten day water fast has become a recommended number of days. Ten days on water will cause the same weight loss as 30 days on juice. But water fasting is far more difficult, especially if you have a fast metabolism. Water fasting cleanses the body aggressively removing toxins rapidly. Water fasting can be more beneficial than juice fasting in combating more persistent forms of cancer, cleansing the tissues more aggressively. Water fasting demands mental preparation, the less pressure and responsibility you have during a water fast the better. Think of it a holiday away form the normal patterns of living. Some recommend that the week before your fast, you drink fresh juices and eat mostly raw fruits and vegetables to cleanse the body so that the detoxification during water fasting will be less aggressive. Water fasting should always include two of three days of juice fasting before and after the water fast. This alternating between juice and water fasting is the most effective method of achieving a full cleansing through fasting.
Water Fasting Tips
Avoid water straight from the faucet. Distilled water is the best for cleansing because of its inherent, magnetic properties and ability to absorb and suspend large quantities of toxins, flushing them from the body. The perceived value of mineral water is misleading because the inorganic minerals are like huge boulders to the cellular membranes, making them impossible to assimilate. Plants are able to break down the minerals from the soils, allowing them to be completely absorbable to the cells of the body. The best water is distilled, secondly, spring or filtered.
There are no calories or nutritional value in water. On a water fast you have given your body no options but to turn to itself for fuel. This can create a problem when you have spent years depositing counterfeit fuel. Living exclusively on dirty fuel during a fast takes tremendous courage & strength. To ease into water fasting some recommend juice fasting with periods of water fasting. For example 3 days on juice, 2 days on water, 5 days on juice, then 3 days on water. You can juice when you have to work and water fast on the weekend when you can rest.
Water Fasting Concerns
It is not advisable to water fast under the conditions of hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia, schizophrenia or a chronic heart condition. If you have existing conditions it is best if you consult with a fasting expert and/or be monitored throughout your fast.
Be careful of dizziness and black outs. The heart is resting as much as it can during water fasting. Before you stand up, take one or two deep breaths to get the heart pumping. If you start to black out, sit down or crouch down on one knee. This will immediately stop the dizziness.
Master Cleanse Fast
The Master Cleanse or Lemon Cleanse is between a water fast and a juice fast. Basically it consists of drinking a mixture of freshly squeezed lemons, water and maple syrup for a period of 8 to 40 days. It is easier to do than a water fast because you are still getting nutrients and energy from the lemons and the maple syrup. This fast can be done while still maintaining your normal work, yet is less calories than what you would get from a juice fast. It is normal to lose weight on this fast and it is excellent for cleansing the colon.
Juice fasting is safe and can allow the body to clean itself of toxins while greatly improving conditions for health. A benefit is that your energy level is high because you are receiving sufficient nutrients from the juices, so you can carry out normal activities. A juice fast takes some burden off the digestive system and frees up some energy for accelerated healing though a water fast does much better in that regard. Also, juices can make available extra quantities of nutrients that a person might lack. Juices are easy to assimilate and take hardly any digestive energy from the body, allowing the body to put more energy into healing and rejuvenation. Packed with vitamins, minerals, living enzymes, antioxidants, phytochemicals, yet low enough in calories to force the body to cannibalize on its filthy waste, propelling you to vigorous physical health and clarity of mind.
For your first fast and for the purpose of healing disease most experts recommend a juice fast over a water fast. Fasting on water has become a near impossible exercise for a body that has been nurtured on poisons. The juice of fruits and vegetables are filled with healing and cleansing properties that allow the body to gently and safely detoxify. Juice fasting has become an effective stepping-stone to water fasting. Through juice fasting, thousands of individuals have been freed from serious diseases such as cancer, leukemia, arthritis, high blood pressure, kidney disorders, skin infections, liver disorders, alcoholism and smoking.
The thirty-day juice fast is a standard. This length of fast feels about right because after 30 days it seems like you have been fasting forever. Less then 30 days and you can miss the best experiences of the fast. If you are juice fasting, a few days on water occasionally will intensify the fast and assist with weight-loss if you have a slow metabolism.
Most people can juice fast safely for up to 30 days. The exceptions are those with hypoglycemia, diabetes, hypo thyroid, and Wilson’s Syndrome. For these conditions, eat slices of avocado and banana every few hours, add high quality vegetable source protein powder to your juices, and add psyllium or another good bulking agent to your juices twice a day to regulate blood sugar levels. Do not juice fast if you have impaired kidney function.
The amount of juice you drink will determine the intensity of cleansing. Drinking small amounts of juice supplies fewer calories, thereby increasing detoxification. The more intense the cleansing, the greater the discomfort. Juice fasting allows you to have control over the process of elimination. However, when the body enters a cleansing crisis due to toxins in the blood, no amount of juice will eliminate the discomfort. You must wait it out.
Drink all-vegetable or all-fruit juices, never combine fruits & vegetables to create juice. Make your juice from fresh vegetables or fruits. You can also include herbal teas with honey, vegetable broth, Barley Green, wheat grass juice and supplements helpful for your specific condition. Drink juice whenever hunger develops until pleasantly full as opposed to stuffed full. It is best if you filter or strain the juices, removing any excess fiber or pulp so that you continue to give the digestive system a rest. Also if it looks like you are not losing weight on your fast, you can dilute the juices with water.
You may consider modifying the fast by including quarter slices of avocado or banana to slow the cleansing process. Modified juice fasting is good for those with health restrictions such as diabetes or hypoglycemia. Bananas and avocados are slow to digest and maintain a stable blood sugar level. Their high calorie content slows the intensity of the fast and, because they are easy to digest, the body still devotes energy to cleansing.
Preparation for Your Fast
Inform yourself about fasting: by doing your own investigation, reading all you can about the fasting process, the various kinds of fasts and what you can expect as side affects. If you have a pre-existing health condition then you should find out if there are contrary indications with fasting and your condition.
Determine your cleanse duration and time period: Try to arrange that your fast is in a time period where you have low activity or lobsters. Avoid heavy kinds of work if at all possible. When it comes to long fasts and inability of somebody to handle a long fast, you just do the best you can. When detoxification increases as it does during fasting, the liver, kidneys, lungs and immune system work extra hard to handle the load. If these systems were already compromised before the fast, one must proceed carefully. You go as long as you can tolerate it, whether physiologically or emotionally, and then come back to eating again. Once you have some energy and are a few steps further toward health, you can consider doing another fast. Several short fasts can definitely do wonders if one long fast cannot be undertaken. Long fasts are preferable to short ones because once the body is in the fasting state it cleanses systematically into the harder to get at body tissues. For this reason, most of the recoveries from illness have taken place in the latter parts of long juice or water fasts. Long fasts give the body the uninterrupted time to do the work of healing. The first few days of fasting gets rid of the gross waste products of digestion, but only after this can the body pull out its tools to get to work on healing.
Frequency of Fasting
Of course, the best is that people stay on a good daily health regime and then when the need comes to fast to go ahead and do it for a week to 10 days or longer if indicated. At least long enough to move completely into the fasting physiology and accelerated detoxification. Ideally people should fast once or twice a year just as a tune-up to deal with the environmental toxins and junk in our foods as well as the emotional build up. Traditionally people have fasted in the spring and fall, when the weather is mild.
It is good to at least have mild exercise and movements with short walks to keep the lymphatic fluid moving and to the keep the vascular system working. The amount of exercise you can do is very much dependent on your existing condition and how you are feeling that day and what kind of fast you are doing. Basically one needs to be alert and listen to one’s body and not to overdo. Fasting is resting, not a marathon! You may feel weak during a water fast and may need to rest more often. While juice fasting, you may experience an abundance of energy that makes exercise easy. If you experience energy loss, limit yourself to stretching exercises, light walking or deep breathing.
Proteins & Fasting
It was theorized that protein loss during fasting was harmful and that a fast should be supplemented with protein. Fasting with protein became known as the Opti-fast. Fasters took nothing but water and a protein drink. Sadly, several people died. Protein digestion during the fasting state created an overload of urea and the blood become acidic. In this condition, the organs become more damaged instead of healing. To the body, fasting is a natural process. During water or juice fasting, the protein levels of the blood remain constant. Although protein is being utilized, a person fasting 40 days on water will not suffer a deficiency of either protein, vitamins, minerals or fatty acids. In the breakdown of dying and diseased cells, all essential substances are available while fasting for reuse within the body. These dead cells are utilized in a systematic manner.
Protein deficiency is non existent in North America. You never hear of anyone being diagnosed with protein deficiency. Fruit and vegetable juices have water-soluble highly absorbable proteins. The body has a store of protein, and it uses it selectively. Dying cells are the first to be used and healthy and vital tissues are the very last and will only be used as a last resort. Only during starvation is protein being stripped from healthy tissue to be used to survive. This may take 30 to 80 days of fasting on water to reach this point.
The systematic searching of cells to be metabolized is crucial in the healing of cancer. A cancer cell represents protein and calories. Some cancers are so persistent that you have to force the body to choose between healthy cells and cancer cells. This requires a long fast on small portions of juice combined with days of water fasting.
Aiding Elimination of Toxins
Enemas: If you are not having natural bowel movements then an enema is advised to move out the toxic material that is being scoured by your body. You will feel much better after taking an enema. An enema can be taken daily in the beginning days of a fast, then bi-daily for the remainder using just plain water.
Mucus: . It is common, during fasting, for the nose and throat to pass sticky mucus, clogging the sinuses. White strands of mucus may be found in the stool. You may find that you are more comfortable if you use a Neti Pot to clear the sinus cavities, to prevent getting a cold with the clogged sinuses. You can also drink lemon juice with water to help clear the mucus.
Showers/Bathing: Plan to shower or bath daily to aid in cleaning the pores and assist the removal of toxins. The skin is a large organ and many toxins are removed through the pores causing a gummy deposit on the surface of the skin. It may help to brush the skin removing the sludge that is deposited there.
Reactions from Fasting
The ‘healing’ reactions you get from fasting are dependent on your existing health and the toxic load present in your body when you start. The first three days can be the most difficult until one’s appetite for food goes away, which it normally does after the third day. Many people experience headaches, joint pain and other discomforts in the first few days. Your tongue will become coated and your breath foul, and you may notice increased body odor. These are all normal detox reactions as the toxins move out of your body. With extended fasting you will notice some days are symptom free, then as you move into deeper layers of detoxification you will experience episodes of symptoms as your body cleanses these other systems. In the later stages you remove the mucous from your system and this can increase your likelihood to catch a flu or a cold. At times you may feel weak or tired, so you should listen to your body and rest. Periods of high-energy and mental clarity will be experienced and can be variable, alternating between periods of healing reactions and symptom free days. With extended fasts it is normal to also have strong emotional reactions that have been suppressed, as the body brings these to the surface also for healing… This can be a difficult period, but can be dealt with more easily with meditation or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). The cleansing response that happens is dependent on experience with fasting, current health and level of toxins and sickness in your body. If you have an existing health condition, it is possible that you get a strong healing reaction or healing crisis. A link to a page describing this reaction in detail is given below.
If cleansing responses arise (headache, stomach upset, mental fog, lethargy,.etc) exercise great patience and take rest until symptoms pass. It’s all part of the process. Always go to your capacity but never over-do. If unreasonably strong physical or emotional symptoms occur, it may be wise to discontinue. The following are common reactions and what can be done to ease the symptom while you are fasting.
Weight loss can initially be as high as three to four pounds per day, but as the fast continues, the average loss will be one pound per day. If you are juice fasting and not losing weight, the juice is supplying all the calories you need. You may have to cut down on the juices or alternate between water fasting and juice fasting if losing weight is part of your goal. The slower your metabolism the slower the weight loss. If you are thin or average weight and you fast for 30 days on juice or 10 days on water, you will become thin. Ribs will show, the face will become gaunt, and friends and family will display concern. But the body will quickly normalize its weight in 5 to 10 days after the fast. If you are thin to start with, fasting may allow you to gain additional weight after the fast. Metabolism is normalized due to the cleansing process. It is very important not to try to gain weight too quickly. The body can rebuild only at a set rate. Overeating will burden the body and undermine the rebuilding process.
You may experience dizziness, if you do get down on one knee and the dizziness will stop immediately.
Back pain may increase due to toxins in the lower intestine. The blood vessels that draw nutrients from the colon are very close to the nerves of the spine. Back pain often decreases after elimination of the toxins. Back exercises also can relieve some pain. A cold pack also will help. An enema may be in order…
Waste passes through the lungs which are an eliminative organ. Brushing the tongue with a tooth brush, using dental floss and rinsing with mouthwash will reduce bad breath.
These may develop from a toxic buildup in the mouth. Unhealthy bacteria increases between the teeth. The tongue becomes coated with waste. To stop cankers, gargle with sea salt mixed with water several times daily. Dabbing the sore with tea tree oil or vitamin E quickens the healing process.
Mucoid is the perfect food for viruses. Toxins weaken the immune system. When large quantities of toxins and mucus are in the blood due to a fast, they can cause a susceptibility to colds. To fight a cold, continue fasting to eliminate the mucus. Reduce the liquid intake and drink lemon juice.
During fasting the body conserves energy. The heart pumps slower and blood pressure lowers. Standing or moving quickly from a resting position will cause the blood to flow to the legs. For a few seconds, the brain may not get enough oxygen, causing blackouts and dizziness. To stop a blackout get down on one knee or sit. Lowering your center of gravity will instantly stop a blackout. Blackouts are more frequent during water fasting.
Fruit juices have a laxative effect that is more pronounced after water fasting. It can be stopped by using the enema. Using psyllium husk during diarrhea will help regulate the system.
Try to journal, EFT, meditate, talk a walk, or rest.
Toxins can cause muscle tightness in the neck and shoulders. This can result in tension headaches. Massaging the neck and shoulders will help relieve the tension. The herb Fever Few, which is available in health food stores, is well worth trying.
Drink lemon juice with water, combine with Neti Pot.
The muscles may become tight and sore due to toxin irritation. The legs can be the worst affected as toxins accumulate in the legs. A self massage, hot baths, stretching and exercising will help to release the toxins.
When waste is released too quickly by the lymph glands, some of the toxic overload is taken by the liver and secreted with bile into the stomach. This causes nausea. Drinking water or carrot juice will dilute the bile and toxin mixture helping to flush it from the system.
The elimination of toxins can irritate damaged nerves. Exercise will relieve tension. Use quarter slices of avocado to slow the fast or drink fruit juice if on a water fast. However, you should note that any food intake may cause one’s hunger to return and make it more difficult to stay on the fast, just do the best that you can.
The skin may become oily as rancid oils are purged from the body. People with problem free skin may have a few days of pimples or boils. A pallid complexion is also a sign of waste in the blood. When cleansed of mucus and toxins, the skin will be healthy, soft and unblemished.
Tiredness is normal during water or restricted juice fasting. If the tiredness is too much, increase the quantity of sweet juices like melon and carrot juice.
Include bananas and avocados when juice fasting to balance the blood sugar level. Toxins in the blood and reduced blood sugar levels may cause a weak heart to labor. Like any other organ, the heart needs nutrients, a toxin free environment, and time to heal. Also if one has the disorder of POTS it is advisable to take salt so that the blood pressure does not get too low.
Do not juice fast unless you use bananas and avocados to balance the blood sugar level.
Fasting can irritate damaged kidneys due to the amount of toxins they filter. Try short juice fasts of 3 to 5 days before progressing to longer fasts.
The liver can become toxic due to abuse. If the liver is badly degenerated, cleansing must be done in stages. Start with short juice fasts and lead to fasts over five days. Avoid heavy proteins, refined flours and fatty foods. Eat meals of fruits or vegetables between the fasts.
Nobody is too old to fast – it is exactly what the body needs to feel young again. Shorter fasts are recommended to start. Assess your physical state as you proceed. If juice fasting becomes too intense, bananas and avocados will lessen the intensity by slowing the cleansing.
Fasting will help significantly. Choose the juices that do not irritate the condition.
(The cleansing reaction, the detox reaction, or the Herxheimer reaction.)
During your fast you may enter into a healing crisis, which indicates that a deeply seated sickness is being healed, but also this means that you are going in reverse through the reactions that you went through as your sickness progressed. This is normally a good thing, because it shows that there is a major healing happening, but the downside is that it is not easy to go through because of the uncomfortable reactions that cause pain, etc. If you are feeling quite ill then you should read through the healing reaction article to try to determine if this is what is going on with you or not. It may be advisable to check with your medical professional at this point, to try to determine if you want to continue the fast or not.
Going Off Your Fast
“It’s a fact that eating causes a cycle of hunger. It’s only when we stop eating that we lose hunger! Think about it. All fasting experts agree that hunger sensations are usually lost on or shortly after the third day of fasting, and sometimes don’t return for weeks, but when they do return, usually very strongly, it’s the time to break the fast.”
But all fasting experts point out that it is important to resume eating very lightly, and very gradually, in exact relationship to the duration of the fast. Therefore, if breaking a 40-day fast, you may want to start with only small quantities of fruit juice for several days up to a week, before actually resuming with solid food like regular fruit.
Important: Keep the first solid meal light and simple even though the mental temptation to dive into heavier favorites will probably be high. Be gentle with your digestive system and your digestive system will not only thank you but the overall benefits of the cleanse will last much longer. If you were on a water fast, then your first day can be juices, if your were on a juice fast, then your first day should be raw vegetables or fruits. The next meal may include heavier items such as potato, avocado or corn, but in any case you will notice that your body is very sensitive to what you eat and you should use this period of transition to learn more about what your body likes and doesn’t like you to put into it.
When waking up a slumbering digestive system, the desire to eat will be intense. The flavors and textures of food will be enhanced by super clean nasal passages. Eating will be a brand new experience. This is the time to flex your new-found muscles of discipline and self-control. As the body screams, I want more, wisdom whispers, you have had enough.
Eating small amounts of raw fruits and vegetables for the first five or six days will allow the body to gently wake up the digestive system. The body will continue to detoxify and cleanse during this period. Any toxins that have accumulated will begin to move due to the sweeping action of the soft fibers of fruits and vegetables.
For six days gradually increase the amount of raw fruits and vegetables in your diet. To break a fast and gorge on meat, bread or junk food will be disaster. Jarring the system this intensely when the digestive system is in a sensitive state can cause stomach cramps, nausea and weakness, negating much of the benefits of the fast.
Eat slowly and chew your food well. Saliva has enzymes that assist in digestion. Up to 80 percent of the starch, 30 percent of the protein and 10 percent of the fat can be digested by the enzymes in saliva.
Do not overeat! Discover the amount of food that your body needs to live a vibrant, healthy life. Discern the difference between cravings and hunger. Never feed your emotions.
When breaking a fast over ten days, the break-in period should be extended one day for every 4 days of fasting.
Greater Sensitivity – Restored Senses
An interesting phenomenon occurs after a fast. The years of conditioning your body to tolerate unhealthy foods is reversed. The body is as clean as a newborn baby. Try feeding a newborn baby Grandma’s apple pie.
When the body is full of toxins, its defense systems are not able to operate effectively. After a fast the natural defenses are restored and sensitivity to unhealthy food is increased. You will feel satisfied with smaller amounts of food and sluggish and tired when overeating. Rich foods, full of fat, salt, and processed sugars will cause nausea, headaches and weakness. A handful of fruit will be thoroughly satisfying. Because the digestive system has to work less, there will be boundless energy to spare.
Why? After a fast your body is clean, and has far less tolerance to the poisonous foods that you were used to eating previous to the fast. Understand, feeling sick when eating poison is a sign that your body is functioning normally. Fasting restores the body’s ability to violently react to harmful, health damaging, food. If you really desire, you can desensitize your body by slowly introducing harmful foods back into your diet, but why you should? You better select your food carefully, even though it is not possible to avoid toxins as these are every where. So fasting as a regular cleaning is important and will keep you healthy.
Disclaimer: You can investigate about everything yourself, but before you start with a treatment, a cleansing, fasting or whatever, you should consult a health professional.

I’ve held off writing this letter for some time now; but I really sense this must get out to the body of Christ to prepare them for what I feel is one of the major deceptions that will be released in this age. In the late 90’s I was with 2 other prophetic brothers in Europe when we began to talk about a subject that back then seemed too wild to believer; but today it seems very conceivable.
One of the prophetic brothers is a brilliant scientist in France and was asked to come to the United Nations for a meeting that would alter his life and ours. He told us that President Bush told those who attended that meeting that the UFO phenomena was genuine and that they needed to leak out the information because they didn’t want the public to panic when contact was made with these creatures.
We were incredulous to hear this from this brother and at that time we didn’t pay much attention to the warnings that the Lord was preparing us for. Let me say this, I do not believe in aliens but I do believe in demons. Anton Lavey, who was the founder of the satanic church openly said that aliens were really demons disguising themselves as another race of beings. At first I didn’t realize why, but later on it hit me that this would be the most inconceivable deception that could be given to mankind. Can you envision these demons coming forward and saying that they created us and that they are our God?
This isn’t going to happen… it’s already started!
The movie, “The Fourth Kind,” is about people in Nome Alaska that have had contact of the 4th kind… this is where an individual is taken and has direct contact with these alien/demons. The movie is the ACTUAL footage, that’s right actual footage.
I’ve cast demons out of people and the same types of manifestations in this movie is the same things I’ve witnessed. But when these alien/demons posses the people in this movie they speak threw them and claim to be God. These alien/demons also in this movie speak in one of the oldest languages in the world that is now extinct, Sumerian. If you have been watching Discovery Channel or History Channel they have one program after another with scientists claiming that we are descendants of these aliens and that the Bible, and other religious writings that are speaking of God and angels, are really a battle that has been raging between these aliens. As I watch these programs I’m amazed at what is being released and the major deception we were told about years ago.
The Sumerians had biblical accounts the same as the Bible in their writings: Noah’s flood and Genesis account are in their religious accounts. When the Bible talks about King David fighting Goliath it says that he was a giant. The Sumerians told this flood story and that these giants were the descendants of the Annunaki. The word Annunaki means, “the fallen ones,” so these must be the fallen angels or principalities that birthed these giants in the days of Noah’s flood and those in the Promise Land.
When we read the records of the Egyptians, Sumerians, Aztecs, Mayans, and many other ancient cultures that were advanced in education they all had interaction with these same beings. The interesting thing is that these aliens all pointed to the 2012 prophecies about the end of the age or that there would be a return of these creatures to the earth. No, I do not believe they are aliens, but that they are demonic principalities getting ready to pull the largest spiritual battle that will ever be seen; and before you write this off, it happened before with Noah and the inhabitants in the Promise Land and it’s all over the educational channels.
I also feel that this must happen in order for the Apostles to be tested in this final move. The word ‘principality’ speaks of a prince or chief in the heavens and so does the word ‘Apostle’. In Revelations chapter 12 it talks about the Man Child being caught up to God and satan and his angels being cast down to the earth. We can see that satan and his demons will walk on this earth and attack the women who gave birth to the Man Child, she is the church!
Revelations 12:7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
I feel the event is right around the bend and many prophetic brothers are saying the same thing; that 2012 could be the start of this war. As you can see the Man Child has been caught up to be seated in the heavenly realm.
I feel that all the garbage and back biting is about to stop because those who will be persecuted will be looking for those who have authority in this realm for the protection of their families and loved ones. In the movie The Fourth Kind, the psychologist’s daughter is abducted by these things and her mother is trying to get her daughter back. The demon speaks through this women says there is only truth, meaning you can’t have your daughter back because of the Law. We need to ask ourselves why these things are quoting a law and what law is it? I feel it’s the Torah and we need to be ready to battle with it. Now in this movie this psychologist was praying in the name of Jesus and seemed to know God but I feel we are really going to be tested about who we know.
Not too long ago a brother came to me with his wife and told me a story that blew me away. He said he was abducted by these creatures and taken to a place that he didn’t know were he was. As they began to experiment on him he rebuked them in the name of Jesus, there reply was, “we don’t listen to that name.” Maybe we need to get back to the name Yahweh gave His Son, Yeshua! That is the name above all names.
For those of you that know me you also know that I’m very level headed. I feel that I can’t hold on to this information any longer. I feel we are about to see the greatest spiritual battle of all times. And in case you haven’t noticed the world is going crazy!! It seems that satan is creating havoc and that is because he knows his time is short.
I’ve seen many saints being taken out at this time, people I would have never expected to fall are falling all over the place. I’ve watched their fruit and its ugly, gossip, lies, back biting, faithlessness and the big one is the holding on to offenses. Paul said that because of unforgiveness that many would fall away from the truth at the end of the age, he also said that people would be unthankful. I’ve never seen so much of these traits as I’m seeing now and people are being turned over to a reprobate mind. That is the mind that can’t be saved because of the ugliness in the heart.
We need to prepare ourselves for this year it seems to me many ugly things will happen but I’m looking forward to it because I know my redemption is drawing nigh. Don’t be one of the foolish but buy the oil while there is still time.. Blessings

Two weeks ago Yahweh spoke to me and said that signs and wonders would begin in order to warn His people that a new move is about to start and that we need to get ready for what is about to transpire in the earth. It will be a time of great battle and the release of demon principalities unlike anything we have seen in the past. These principalities will take out believers and reveal the deception in their hearts like never before.
This week we had several signs occur in the church. First ruby gems fell in the meeting. They speak of several things in the bible: preciousness, of great value, costly glories, wisdom, and prized treasure. I feel these stones are a sign of the season we are about to enter and see the wisdom of Yah released unlike never before with many signs and wonders. A pastor just recently came to me who didn’t know me and began to prophecy that the church only has a few months to prepare for the next move of God, that He is about to shut the door on the religious and bypass those who refuse to learn, by separating the wheat from the tares. It was interesting because that day I spoke upon those lines in the service.
Another sign was a girl in our church who had bad cavities and needed dental work done had her teeth filled supernaturally from the Lord with gold fillings. We have had several cases of this happening in the last few weeks, this is another sign of the Holy Spirit increasing the signs and confirming His word to the church.
The Last sign is really incredible, one of the brothers on the worship team loves to blow the shofar. During service he was playing the shofar and set it down to enter into worship when the choir noticed the shofar kept playing while it was sitting on the floor.
Not only are these signs increasing but many miracles are happening and healings from all types of sickness and disease. It’s time for the new move to begin and Dad is giving us signs that its starting. I also received a call from a church in Australia that on the same night gold was breaking out over the people in their meetings, it’s a confirmation that the move is starting….
I’ve also noticed that the Lord is removing people from the flock who refuse to change and sending them back into the deception of old religion. I notice these people listen to gossip and don’t understand Biblical precedence. They didn’t follow the Bible and the order of the scripture. The Lord says that they can’t be used in His government because they refuse to follow truth so He is cutting them off.
Galatians 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
The accursed is: anathema it means to be excommunicated from the body, which means to be cut off from the body of Christ and dammed to hell. These are tares that must be removed in order to prune the church for the final season.
Paul says his gospel is:
Rom 16:25 Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began 26 but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith— 27 to God, alone wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen.
Notice that Paul’s Gospel is the revelation of the mystery of Christ. It’s interesting to me that the people who keep pulling others out have no revelation themselves and usually don’t even follow the Lord but live in sin. These people are deceived and bring deception to others. Those who get pulled out would rather follow a people living in the world and deception than the fathers of the faith. My response is Paul’s response, let them be anathema!!!! It’s time to get rid of those who are holding back the Lord’s kingdom!!
Part of the word that was given to me this week from the Australian pastor I met for the first time was this: He said, I see you with a golden spear ready to go into the Promise Land, a Lion is sitting in front of you waiting also. The Lord says you have been waiting for the army to get behind you but they don’t want to mature. The Lord said get ready He has created you for war and now the Lion will lead you in because the rest don’t want to pay the price.
My response is: I’m tired of waiting for the babies and whiners to grow up, like Joshua and Celeb I’m going in now!! Let the lazy and rotten ones die in there disbelief. Like Noah I turn them over to the fate of Ham. There are too many souls that need to be harvested and I see the signs and wonders to confirm my direction and call.
Mar 16:17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.
I walk in these signs almost EVERY WEEK, so i know i walk with my King.
