End Times and A Possible Global Church. What do you think?

Faith End Time ChurchNation of God, Lynn here.

So, I had an entirely different post planned and written for today. However, in my spirit, I can’t remain quiet. There are important issues of the day that are relevant to our faith, our home and our marriage. And so, with fear of rejection or criticism, I’m stepping out to share some things upon my heart. I ask that you read what I share and consider how these current day issues are a factor in your life, faith and within your marriage. And I also ask that you forgive me for being timid in the past as I avoided issues which are challenging for all of us to agree upon.

Finally, I ask that you discern what the Lord and His Word are speaking to you about the topics, share in the comments with love. As a body of believers, we need to discuss issues in the news and in our churches in order to resolve within ourselves our stance because very soon, our conviction may be the only thing that keeps us from falling down the slippery slope. And if you disagree with me, that’s okay. Please be kind in the comments.

So, where to start.

Today I feel absolutely overwhelmed to write about a process that I had with the Lord this morning. It has been the strangest experience and powerfully revelatory. So, I will walk you through it and then let’s talk about the implications in the comments.

Last night I awoke in the middle of the night. I distinctly heard two names. One of which I am familiar and one I’ve never heard before.

William H. Taft
William F. Barkley

Two Williams. WEIRD!!!  Can I just ask you, has this happened to you? Have you awakened hearing a person’s name whispered in your ear at night???? I’m tellin’ ya…. WEIRD.

Early this morning, with coffee in hand, I sat down in my prayer room and proceeded to Google search these names.

Whoa. To my astonishment, William F. Barkley, was a theologian who was born December 5, 1907 and died in 1978. The interesting thing about this Professor and pastor of the Church of Scotland is that he denied the reality of the Trinity. He was a prolific writer as well as teacher.

Interesting. Okay Lord.

Then I searched William Taft, twenty seventh president of the United States. Brilliant man who was a four-term President as well as a Supreme Court Justice. A long history of public service adorns his resume. However, after searching further I discovered he presented himself as a Christian but fully adopted the doctrines of the Unitarian church. BTW, I knew nothing about either of these people nor the Unitarian Church prior to this morning.

So, in my process with the Father I asked: Father, why are you showing me this?

His response: This is information about the future. Denial of the Trinity.

You see, both Williams had a singular similarity. They adopted doctrine that denies the truth of the Triune God. Unitarianism is central to the denial of the Trinity and it goes further to deny the deity of Christ as well as the denial of the supernatural.

Instantly I understood why the Lord placed these two names into my mind in the middle of the night and their commonality is the denial of the Trinity. The Lord went on to impress upon me that in the future, end-times, the church will unite under Unitarianism as it is the belief system that welcomes all faiths.

The Lord created this name puzzle with the Williams to be so unlikely, so crazy, that I would have zero doubt as to the message and that it was of the Lord.

Gang, I rarely hear names in the middle of the night, especially names of people I don’t even know.

Sitting in my prayer room, I grieved as I thought about the millions that will be deceived. Unitarianism began under the original name, Arian…. Good grief… (Arian Nation, Nazism sprang to mind.) The denial of the Trinity, then denial of Christ as Deity and finally when all possibility of the supernatural realms is tossed out, the gates of hell open and all faiths will unite. If Christ is merely a human man like the rest of us, then the power of the cross is a lie.

Prayer Notes End-Times Prophecy
BTW, My notes from my prayer time.

However, in this moment on the couch in my prayer room, a vigorous truth arose in my spirit. Here it is:

The truth about Jesus is that He is different than any other man who walked this earth. He was born of a virgin. The seed of God is incorruptible and wholly pure, divine. The DNA is pure and unaltered and the perfection of mankind, thus his blood sacrifice meets every demand of the law and the prophets. He is one of the three in the Trinity. He is deity. He is the Word. He is the Lamb who took away the sins of the world.

HALLELUJAH!

Why this history lesson? My SUMite friends, awareness is our profound gift as we face the largest battle in the church in this current day, deception. If we are unaware of the schemes of satan, we are doomed to fall into this big, beautiful, welcoming, church that still allows me to be a Christian but at the core denies the power and truth of Christ.

I will tell you this, shallow believers will run with passion to the doors. Our unbelieving spouses will smile and say, “Now, this sounds like a church I could attend.”

I’m not kidding. These scenarios are very real for our lives. So…… Now, here is the difficult part of this message. You are aware. Now you are accountable.

What can we do. Praise Jesus that He is showing His Bride the truth. He is actively and with wild efforts, such as speaking names I don’t know into my ear at night, making us aware of what is coming. He is urging us to prayer and to seek out the truths and have them LOCKED IN our heart, mind, soul and strength.

Pray for wisdom. Pray for discernment. Pray for revelation (Ephesians 1:18) Pray that God’s truth will be made known and deception defeated. In Jesus name.

Thoughts?

Thanks for allowing me to share some of my fantastic adventures with our King! 

On Friday: Censorship…. Ya, let’s keep the controversial subjects rolling.

One final note. Of course, what I have shared is a possibility that God is making me aware. Our prayers can delay, deny and cancel the works of the enemy. To that end is why I believe the Lord is showing me this information. Let's pray. Let's believe. Let's triumph. Hugs, Lynn

*****

Today, I will pray with purpose, power and belief, using the Word with conviction, confidence and finally with unfailing courage. I will not relent or give up or give in. I will stand for goodness, honesty, integrity, and truth. I will love lavishly and forgive easily. I will offer hope and a hand to those who I can help, and I will always and forever remain loyally in love with my Jesus.

This is my high and holy calling, and I will believe nothing less. In the name of Jesus. Amen and Hallelujah!!!

A Good Father

From my prayer time. February 3, 2018.

Lynn: I’m here. I’m listening. Speak to me…..

Father: I love you with an everlasting love.

Lynn: Papa, when did you create me? My Spirit?

Father: Before time began. We created the stars and marveled at their beauty. Fathomed the universe and beheld the forming of oceans and the waves lap upon the land as it rose up out of the water.

Lynn: Dad, why does it have to be so hard and ugly on earth?

Father: It doesn’t have to be that way. You can always change it.

Lynn: But why don’t we?

Father: Fear, helplessness, selfishness, pride, laziness. (He pauses) The wickedness of satan.

My child, yet, you do not perceive all the goodness that surrounds you. Goodness is everywhere, in pockets of unrecognized love that is passed, person to person, good deed to good deed. Goodness is beheld in my love, manifesting in endless rounds of beauty in nature, hope in the human heart, provision and creativity.

The sons of perdition work through deception to infiltrate goodness and plant seeds of hopelessness, confusion, sorrow and despair.

But as a child of Mine, you are fully equipped to destroy the works of the enemy. Lynn step outside on this dazzling morning. What do you see?

Lynn: The brilliant depths of the sunrise sky, evergreen trees with bristle cones of perfection and anointed with a divine aroma. I hear the birds, O Papa, they are singing worship in an unrehearsed symphony.

Father: Ah yes, My beloved daughter, every dawning of the day, I listen as they pour their hearts out and fill the air with sound. It is the same when you pray. Melodies of love pierce My heart. Life is all about, thriving, singing, creating. The natural world is a reflection of beauty and hope of the Kingdom, eternal.

My daughter, now consider the human mind. Its capacity remains woefully untapped by most. It remains a mystery to science, complex, brilliant, creative, powerful. And the human body is a creation of vast and varying systems complete in detail and function. Ah My child, the spirit! The Spirit of God that dwells in the body. The spirit, my child, is where all things converge, intellect, wisdom, revelation, peace, divine health, power, authority…. Dominion.

I have already given you all you need for life and Godliness (2 Peter 1:3). It’s in the Spirit. For your words are spirit and they are life (John 6:63). When you turn your pursuits away from the deceiver then focus fully upon My love, My nature, My purposes and plan, Upon Me, your spirit becomes fully alive. Within unfolds the wisdom of My power. It realigns your DNA to holiness and creates the Kingdom of God within. From within flows outwardly, rivers of living water that changes destruction, heals the ugly and redirects the difficult issues of life. (John 7:37-38)

This is the truth, seek ye the Kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you. Pursue Me and perceive. You SHALL see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

My child, take Me with you wherever you go today, and I shall reveal My glory in the ordinary and in the divine. I adore you, your Father.

He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, 2 Timothy 1:9

*****

Today, I will pray with purpose, power and belief, using the Word with conviction, confidence and finally with unfailing courage. I will not relent or give up or give in. I will stand for goodness, honesty, integrity, and truth. I will love lavishly and forgive easily. I will offer hope and a hand to those who I can help, and I will always and forever remain loyally in love with my Jesus.

You Have Everything

James 1 5 jpegYou Have Everything

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.— 2 Peter 1:3 (NIV)

My child, have you finally grown weary? Is the cloak of frustration that covers your soul, consuming your energies? Are the bonds of darkness, worry, unrest, anxiety, blotting out your brilliance, intellect and power?

I look upon your heart and perceive your questions. Be assured, I am intently listening to you as you pray. Yet, My sweet child, bend your knee and pray differently.

Your prayers and petitions are scrambling for a hasty resolution to your current struggle and pain. But, alas, haste offers merely a temporary relief while closure remains aloof and distant. I long to place into your life a permanent healing, a remedy of such magnitude that never again will you struggle with this preponderance of ache.

Seek not simplicity of answers.

Seek revelation.

Seek My heart.

Turn the hours of petition-prayers to plunging prayer. Ask to enter in. Seek to be welcomed into depths of perfection. Jump off the cliff of mundane and safe footing, swim through the seas of love, grace, mercy. Touch the center of My heart. Worship in expectant peace. Rest in Me.

Peace resides within revelation of My realm, providing every resolution to every problem of mankind.

Revelation unlocks wisdom. Request wisdom and I will send her to you, laden with scrolls of decree for your future. Revelation downloads transport simplicity of design to complicated challenges, impossible relationships and evil assignments. Revelation is a realm of hope. It is joy personified in delight as resolutions arrive. It is all you need. Revelation is your power on earth, My child.

Seek revelation from My heart. Pray with greater understanding.

Behold!

The angelic are summoned. Warriors of God arrive. Give a SHOUT! Hallelujah! Strategies and blueprints of heaven unfold within your mind.

The mere answers you are seeking are swallowed up on GLORY as my revelation, purposes, love and power are displayed through your life.

This day, turn to revelation prayer. The move of God in your life will bring the awareness of Me to others. Arise and take this world for the Kingdom of The Most High!

You Have Everything

Philippians 4 7Recently while I was worshiping in an extended time of singing, I became aware of myself standing with my arms held out in front of me. I could sense that a royal robe of weightiness, ornate and beautiful, being gently placed upon my shoulders. I also could perceive a scepter in one hand and something round in the other. (This was so unexpected and fascinating.) I could feel the power and love of God and immediately as it felt like electric pulses ran my spine. I heard the Lord speak to my heart, “You have everything.”

Whoa.

In that instant an uncommon peace settled over my heart. I would describe it as the peace that surpasses all understanding. In the two weeks leading up to this moment, I’d actually been in a place of insecurity and fear. I repented of the fear and had been asking God to come in and realign my heart with His.

Indeed, God loves an invitation as such.

Along with this new peace the scripture promise came, you have everything.

His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.— 2 Peter 1:3

(God has me camped in the books of Peter.)

This promise flooded my soul with peace. As the Holy Spirit prompted, “Lynn, you already have everything you need.”

Whoa!

Resting in this truth is powerful. Bringing this truth forward into our earthly realm is where I believe I’m headed. I expect this classroom to present interesting twists and turns. But I’m determined to perceive the ways of God and how, as His child, I am to enlist all of heaven to bring all I need for life and Godliness.

Expect a few updates as the classroom opens. Love you my friends. I pray this scripture comes alive in your faith. In Jesus name. AMEN

The Climate of Shalom

By Lynn Donovan 

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
 — Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)
 

In this world you will face fear, pain, struggles, trauma and an abundance of difficulties. But, you the chosen one of God, be of great cheer, filled with the Shalom of heaven. Walk every day in supernatural, unexplained joy and peace of the Kingdom! For I have overcome this world of struggle for you. I hold the Key of David and beckon. I open the gates of peace and you are welcomed.

Today surrender your questions of why. Give unto me your need for explanation. Place into my scarred hands your disappointment, offense, fear, failures and broken dreams. Today, for this day, step into the climate of Shalom and truly live in My peace. Receive My love that redeems your heart from the fears of the world. My perfect love casts our all fear, doubt and strife.

It is our Father’s good pleasure to give you the keys to the Kingdom. Step into Shalom and feel My love. My love and joy will empower you to love others with a full heart, free from fear and worry.

Hallelujah!!!!! 

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. —John Chapter 16:33

Father God, today, I step into your perfect peace. I give you my need to know “why.” I will stand on the faithfulness of your Presence in my life. You said you will never leave me nor forsake me. This is where I choose to live today. I receive Your blessings of perfect peace over my mind, heart, body, will and emotions. I am covered by the blood of Jesus. I choose to walk in Your love and truth. In Jesus name. AMEN

Typical Reaction To Transition

image from www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.comWhat happens to most of us during transition?

  • Fear
  • Confusion
  • Uncertainty
  • Anxiety as our minds whirl and thousand miles a minute trying to conceive every kind of possible situation and the outcome.

What do we do when a transition is thrust upon us? When it wasn’t what we wanted, isn’t God’s will, or we are forced into change unwillingly?

Unforeseen and unwelcomed transitions such as divorce, fired, accident, illness.

What do we do?

Get with God.

Be raw. Be real. He can handle it. Tell Him you don’t like it. Be alone in prayer with God. Take walks and talk to Him. Get alone and tell Him you are afraid or you don’t understand and that you are at a loss of where to go next.

Be careful not to accuse God. God is our good father. And over my many years of faith life I’ve discovered that all the difficulty in my life has always come at the hands of the demonic. God never sets us up to hurt us but the devil will use everyone and anyone to further his work of destruction.

Read the Psalms. Read until you find the passage that is the cry of your heart. The verses that speak: “That’s my need. That’s my heart song.” Cry it out to God. It’s okay to tell Him you are angry but then ask His hand to begin the forgiveness process. Ask Him to heal you of your anger, disappointment. Ask him to stay close to you.

My brothers and sisters, in your greatest loss is something unexpected and utterly fantastic. It is an invitation. The devil is poised and waiting for you to turn away from God, accuse Him. OR in a difficult moment or season we can turn to God fully, tell Him we don’t understand. We can resolve the pain and loss with Him and reconcile to receive His peace.

Where you have your greatest loss is something hidden. What the enemy meant for evil is an invitation for your greatest victory. Because around the corner is the miraculous. It’s new levels of encounters, new levels of answered prayer and your authority over the very thing meant to harm you now becomes your conquered ground and you are then empowered to help others to become free! Hallelujah!

Loss is pain. It’s disappointment and fear but it’s also a divine invitation. It is the gateway to beginning to a new level of intimacy, new levels of anointing, it is the very path to holy ground of miraculous victory and the divine. It is your invitation into your destiny.

AMAZING. Thank you Jesus, that You redeem and restore all things. AMEN

Transition and Enemy Opposition

image from www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.comOne more component of a Godly transition: ENEMY OPPOSITION. Following a weird and closing season of September, then stepping into new fantastic assignment in October then led to full on warfare every November.

November would bring with it traumatic and dramatic events into my personal life. I would experience changes in my relationships, sin, or some kind of event that at times would send me reeling. I could be incapacitate for months as I would try to climb out of the pit or out from under the attack of the enemy.

Example: I faced down a recurring addiction in November of 2007, my husband, did in fact, lose his job. That season was upheaval on steroids. Every November something difficult would rise up. I became so aware of the impending trauma around the corner that I wrote a note in my Daily Bible to begin praying against it.

Many years ago, I remember that I asked a woman in my Bible study who was wiser and more mature than me as to why this was happening. She said perhaps the question isn’t why. But to pray: Lord, make be able to endure.

A few years ago, God said, FORGET THAT. You don’t have to endure the bashing of the enemy. Start renouncing its power over you. Do not come into agreement that you will be assaulted. Take up my power and shield and command opposition away from your life and those you love.

WOW, THAT STRATEGY WORKED!

Transitions will occur at any time of the year, but I ask you to step into awareness because God gives fantastic assignments to His people in this season and you will be fully prepared to walk into them in victory!

Next week: Typical responses to transitions and how to process change with the Lord!

Love you... Live boldly! Live with Hope! Expect Great changes this month! Woo Hoo, Hugs, Lynn

New Commissioning! October!

For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. —Isaiah 43:19

image from www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.comGod is awakening the church, the BRIDE, to arise into their true identity, calling and into their power and authority. In order to do this, we must surrender old places, old faces, and every detractor that keeps us from God’s positioning. We have an irrevocable and diving calling but often old wine skins must be tossed and then we are ready for the new assignments, rolls and the divine. I will share in a minute how to walk through release and difficult transitions well.

  • God decrees new assignments.

I also believe He releases His people into new assignments for the year or SEASON. God moves in this season. He has taken an account of the past year and measured our life against the book that is written in heaven. He then will assign us to new work, new growth in faith, new ministry, new relationships. And the season is then sealed with words that I can imagine sound like this:

SO BE IT!

This is the season where some of the most spectacular events of my life have occurred.

In this season in my past in October, I signed my first book contract. My husband finally had an interview to be hired a year later.

And in my faith life OCTOBER 12, 2012 my entire faith life altered when I experienced an encounter with God. (A story for another day. It’s way loooong.) October of 2013 I experienced an open vision of Jesus, the Glorified Prince on His white horse. Whoa!

  • God releases us into new areas to be conquered, experienced and overcome.

God closes out old seasons and opens us up to new ones. Many of our transitions are truly ordained and orchestrated in heaven.

So, think for a minute, can you recall experiencing some kind of major shift in your life around this time period? Interesting?

Shanah Tovah Umetukah 5778 (Hebrew) meaning "A Good and Sweet Year"

image from www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.comMy Dear Friend,

Repeat After Me:

  • I am a powerful child of God.
  • I am the head and not the tail.
  • I was created for greatness.
  • My destiny is to live in victory.
  • My destiny is to have the abundant life.
  • Today, I declare I am in transition from glory to glory and strength to strength. Hallelujah

Well Done! Let these words now move into truth in the spiritual realm and then be lived out in our physical life.

The entire church is in a GREAT transition. The awakening of the Body of Christ. And from what I am hearing almost all of us are transitioning from something that was a main part of our life to something new.

We are in the midst of a paradigm shift of massive consequence. Look at our political climate. A giant shift from a year ago. Our schools. Our churches. What I have come to realize is that often the people of God aren’t prepared for transition and struggle though one instead of live on top of them. And the devil is fully aware of this and uses confusion, fear and more to throw us off. Blame God, blame others and to discourage us to the point of giving up.

Am I right?

Let’s talk about Transitions in God’s timeline:

Rosh Hashanah through Yom Kippur.

  • God moves in His timeline. NEW YEAR. Rosh Hashanah typically falls somewhere in September or early October. This Year it falls on the evening of September 21 and 10 days later Yom Kippur the most solemn religious fast of the Jewish year, the last of the ten days of penitence that begin with Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) In This 10-day window I’m convinced a ton of things happen in the spiritual realm.
  • God takes an account.

Historically, the ancient Rabbis base their description of Rosh Hashanah on an analogy drawn from Roman military life. Just as a Roman commander reviews the troops who pass before him, so “on Rosh Hashanah all human being pass before [God] as troops, as it is said [in Psalms 33:15], ‘He who fashions the heart of them all, who discerns all their doings'” Seeing how they conduct themselves, the commander, like God, decrees each person’s fate. This is why in the Jewish faith Rosh Hashanah is typically a somber and sobering time.

Okay, so what does it look like for God to take an account? I can only share that I have experienced this cycle over and over and finally began to recognize how the truth of changes in my life align with God’s timetable.

Every September I find that things close out. I have experienced some difficult changes in September. Relationships end. For example, in my own life, interestingly, and not planned that way, my 11-year ministry partnership ended on September 1, 2017. This was unplanned but interesting how it came to close exactly on September 1. My husband was told he was going to be laid off in 2008. (This was a major transition for us). School starts, new relationships, new teachers, closing of old friendships, old familiar territory. 

Seasons of closing happen in September.

This is of course not always how all endings happen nor new beginnings, it’s just fascinating to me how MAJOR events of my life have transitions in this window, through September and October.

So, think about what has closed out in your life in years past in the month of September? You will be amazed to realize that this happens in your life and faith life.

Why?

Why do we experience a season of closing? Well we will answer that question in the next post. I feel as though God has given me insight into His timing in order that we might not be surprised but be prepared for all He is doing in our world, in our lives.

This feels like this scripture is applicable to my life in this area: It is God's privilege to conceal things and the king's privilege to discover them. —Proverbs 25:2

God hides things for those of us who are pressing in. It is His delight to reveal His Kingdom to His kids. How cool is that?

Stay tuned because this is GOOD! Hugs, Lynn

Rosh Hashanah -Faith Practices and Realities of the Kingdom

image from www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.comWe are entering into a very interesting week. There has been A LOT of discussion about the Revelation 12 sign, the end of the age, and the rapture in Christian circles of late. But I’m not sure about it all. What I am sure about is that we, as the church, are stepping into a new season. There is something arising. It is the purposes and the power of THE CHURCH!  Hallelujah!

Over the next few weeks, I want to share the significance of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur in our modern life and in our Christin faith. God’s timeline is not based upon the Gregorian calendar. What is fascinating to me is that year after year, I experience a significant series of events in September, again in October and again in November. These events are hugely impactful to my personal life and faith. And as I began to share my experiences of this season with others, I realized others are also experiencing significant changes in this season, year-after-year.

It appears to me that most of us are in a giant season of transition. And most of us struggle walking through transitions well.

Anyone? If this is true for you, leave me a note in the comments that you are in a transition and tell me briefly what is changing or closing out in your life. I think it will be fascinating to see what season is closing out in your life in the month of September. The month of Rosh Hashanah.

Rosh Hashanah begins, Wednesday evening, September 20th and ends Friday evening, September 22, 2017. Then we enter a 10-day period leading up to Yom Kippur. I will explain more as the days pass. I know in the past few years we have fasted together in this season for breakthrough together as a community. I’m not going to lead a community fast this week as I am traveling Thursday-Sunday. But, I ask you to pray and ask the Lord if He is calling you to fast this week to press in for your breakthrough. I know there are many of you who need to fast for this very reason.

These holidays are highly significant in any year but I feel a tension and an excitement over this year, specifically.

So, stay tuned and hang on because I’m going to share some thoughts that will positively take you in prayer to the Throne Room to inquire of God about what He has prepared for you in this season. And His plans will blow your mind. He always blows mine. And we are also going to look at what the enemy is doing to bring destruction during this season. And more importantly, the tools God gave me last week to completely decimate the devils works.

Can I shout HALLELUJAH again?

Say it with me now OUT LOUD: HALLELUJAH!

I love you. Let me know what transition you are facing and what is closing out in this month. There is a purpose in asking. I’ll share with you later.

Have a fantastic week! Shalom! And Happy New Year! 

*****

Today, I will pray with purpose, power and belief, using the Word with conviction, confidence and finally with unfailing courage. I will not relent or give up or give in. I will stand for goodness, honesty, integrity, and truth. I will love lavishly and forgive easily. I will offer hope and a hand to those who I can help, and I will always and forever remain loyally in love with my Jesus.

This is my high and holy calling, and I will believe nothing less. In the name of Jesus. Amen and Hallelujah!!!
