Prayer for Shift in Governmental Authority

 Father I take a stand and rise up in faith and agree together with all the saints and heaven that it is written: “‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my good pleasure'” (Is. 46:10b).

Father I cover the first 100 days of the Trump presidency and onward by agreeing in the spirit concerning heaven’s decision to appoint Donald Trump as president of the United States. For it is written in Romans 13:1-3, Daniel 2:21 and Daniel 4:17, it is God who appoints those in authority to accomplish His will!

I agree in unison with the saints to cancel and bind up all the plans of the enemy to thwart the Fathers plan for this new White House, for America, for the church, for the nations and the coming great awakening harvest.

We cancel and abolish the scheme of the evil one to do as much damage as possible to this new president, administration and those who are coming to occupy this new territory. We cancel and abolish the plans of the evil doers to do harm and rob us of our peace of mind and confidence in the Lord.

The Lord has said, “My Word is enough!” And Gods Word ratifies and determines every court case in heaven. Regardless of the arguments presented or threats delivered, it is the Judge’s final word that settles the case. Lord strengthen our faith and trust in YOU to do what YOU have promised.

God’s plans are sealed in heaven regarding this shift in governmental authority, and I take a stand with all the saints and agree that Gods word and promises are secure. Father we avert the enemies intrusion into this process by the power of our agreement in prayer.

Father we evict the collective mindset in this land built against the Kingdom of God and Your righteousness, and we evict it by our collective unity in prayer. We have been given the authority and access to occupy this territory by Gods command, and that is enough to bring the divine protection needed. Lord release your angels of protection over your warring saints!

Father we decree justice, arrests, indictments and convictions of the evil doers who have committed treason and every sort evil against America, the people of God and other nations, especially Israel!

We rise up in faith and agree in prayer that the enemy is bound and that the Word of the Lord stands over this nation and will not be revoked. I stand in the truth of God’s victory and that America will fulfill her destiny as a sheep nation and a discipler of sheep nations in these end times!

Satan is an illegal squatter, and it is God Who has given us the authority to speak peace to the land and to this process of governmental shift in order to accomplish Gods will.

I stand in the confidence of a good Father whose pleasure it is for us to enter this new season. It is His joy for us to take down the giants in the land and take our place as His sons and daughters.

Father may Your sons and daughters truly become the MATURE sons You have called us to be as we do Your will by exercising our authority that You have given us through Christ Jesus.

Lord strengthen us for this journey and teach us how to rest and war in order to avert the device of satan to wear out the saints!

We pray this in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ, AMEN!!!

2017 – The Year Where Great Expectations Are Turning into Reality!

2017 – The Year Where Great Expectations Are Turning into Reality!

By Sarah Beveridge

A little Re-cap of 2016

Last January 2, 2016 I posted what I had received from the Lord for 2016. The message actually started to be revealed to me on November 30, 2015. In that post 2016 and Beyond – The Coming Move of the Spirit  I wrote about the scriptures Holy Spirit led me to for 2016, which was John chapter 16. The Lord then confirmed that chapter with a prophetic experience in my life that lasted for three months.

As we are now entering into the year 2017, I have reflected on the past year and I am encouraged to see the things I wrote about started to manifest, and it is just the beginning.

After the election of Donald Trump, so many things came into focus for me. The first thing I recognized is that over the last eight years during the Obama administration, the church, for the most part, had retreated into itself and had not been an effective witness or engaged the culture. This created a huge vacuum in society where the devil got a foothold and was able to get his message and agenda spread far and wide during that time. But the message and agenda of the Kingdom of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ has been marginalized and even demonized. Christians became fearful.

This lack of witness in the culture and society is in complete disobedience to the instructions Jesus gave us. He said to go be the salt and light before men, and go make disciples of all nations. (Mat 5:13-16, Mat 28:19-20, Mar 16:15-18.) The Lord confirmed to me our failure in this commandment when He gave me a vision in June 2016 of a dust pan with a salt shaker in it. Wow that one stung!

I have to confess that I did not even vote in the 2012 presidential election. I have barely and rarely prayed for President Obama and the leaders in our government. Except that I did continually ask that the Lord would raise up godly leaders in our government and also overturn Roe vs. Wade. I felt like I needed to repent of this lack of prayer because scripture is clear we are to pray for our leaders. Whether we believe it or not, it is GOD who appoints those in authority over us. IT IS WRITTEN! Read Romans 13:1-7, Daniel 2:21 and Daniel 4:17. I believe that the eight years of Obama will actually turn out to be a good thing for the church. When Hillary Clinton was running and we contemplated how bad things would get with her as our leader, it was a wakeup call for the church. We may not have realized that if we had not already faced eight years under Obama. And this brings me to the FOUR things the Lord personally gave me to share, and pray into for the upcoming year. The number “four” biblically symbolizes Gods creative works, and I believe He gave me these four things because God is going to show Himself very strong in His people in 2017!

 

Number One – Be the Salt and Light

Fear has really gripped the church when it comes to how we engage in our society, and especially pastors, and the Lord is saying STOP BEING FEARFUL! We have not been given a spirit of fear!

1 Tim 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

Let us make it a priority to be the salt and light we are called to be! This is a huge issue for the church. And it also means a lot to the Lord Jesus Christ. Do not shrink back! But instead engage in our culture and engage the people around you by letting your saltiness “rub” them a little. Do not be afraid to do this, because God has said that when we plant seeds and water, He brings the increase!

To be “salty and shine your light” does not necessarily entail speaking in “Christianese” all the time. People do indeed get turned off by that. Ask the Lord to help you be an effective witness with a new expression of saltiness, light and love and a language that gets the attention of people and “rubs” them into thinking about things in a different way. Ask the Lord to help you see as He sees and love as He loves. It’s time to do this saints. Make no mistake about it, the Lord is watching how we are going to respond to this time of reprieve He has given us.

 

Number Two – Great Expectations are turning into Reality!

On November 13, 2016 I had a very amazing experience. I was sitting on my couch praying and waiting on the Lord. All of a sudden the atmosphere shifted so dramatically that my left ear popped really loud and I had to look around to see what just happened. Then I felt GREAT HOPE rise in my spirit. As this happened I heard these words come into my spirit and I spoke them out loud, “Great expectations are turning into reality!” I believe what happened is that an angel of the Lord entered the room and brought this message from the Lord. I have had other experiences with angels (and demons) where a shift in the atmosphere occurred, so I knew that is what it was.

This message has been very encouraging, but also challenging to me since I typically am one who has low expectations, and I believe the Lord is dealing with me on this issue. In 2016 the Lord was dealing with me on what comes out of my mouth. I have been led to pay attention to what I say and stop coming into agreement with the devils kingdom and start coming into agreement with God by speaking life and love.

Next month will be nine years I have been walking with Jesus with my whole heart. For the first several years it seemed my focus was on “Gods impending judgment” and then I shifted to the “imminent rapture” for a couple years. From my observation it appears that most born again Christians fall into about three to four groups, the impending judgment camp, the rapture camp and the blessings camp. In reality all are biblical and I believe God judges, and I believe in the rapture and Gods blessings. But what I have learned is that we must seek and desire to be aligned with what God is doing at any given time, because HIS plans are what really matters and this is the group I want to be part of. And God is telling us to EXPECT GREAT THINGS and they will turn into reality!

I recently read that “the most vital key in the period between believing and manifesting the answer is this matter of expectation.”

The definition of expectation is:

-a strong belief that something will happen, or be the case in the future

-the degree of probability that something will occur

Expectations can be negative also, so we must change our outlook to align with God and stop leaning on our own understanding, and low expectations. : )

Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope (G1680 – EXPECTATION) fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope (EXPECTATION) by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.    

Matthew 15:11 It’s not what goes into your mouth that defiles you; you are defiled by the words that come out of your mouth.”

1 Corinthians 9:10 …it was written for us, so that the one who plows and the one who threshes the grain might both EXPECT a share of the harvest.

 

Number Three – Seven Fold Refining Fire in 2017

This morning I was in prayer and asked Jesus if He had anything else for me to share for 2017.  In waiting on the Lord, He spoke clearly, “seven fold refining fire in 2017 for those who have not cooperated with the Lords pruning.”

When I asked what “seven fold” meant, the Lord said “unto completion.” The term “seven fold” is found in the scriptures about 34 times in the term “seven times” and these scriptures bear witness to completion. Here is the link to read them for yourself.

http://www.blbclassic.org/search/translationResults.cfm?criteria=seven+times&sf=5&sstr=0&t=KJV

Saints, the refiner’s fire, also known as “pruning” in John chapter 15, is a very critical part of maturing as a Christian and becoming an overcomer. I have experienced it several times, and I am sure most of you reading this have also. But there are many who have resisted the Lord and are not walking in obedience.

Just yield to it and get it over with. You will be very glad you did and I can also tell you it is never as bad as you think it will be. Afterward I have always thought that it could have been much worse and thanked the Lord that is was not.

The True Vine – John 15

1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

 

Number Four – Seven Fold Friendship with Jesus in 2017

I saved the best one for last. This was also spoken to me in prayer this morning and I knew immediately this speaks to what the Lord had been teaching me about the tabernacle of Moses since 2014. At the end of 2014 I wrote a book called “My God and Yours Jesus Christ, a Letter to my Brethren.” In the writing of that book the Lord told me, “the pattern of the tabernacle overlays everything.” I speak about this in the book. More revelation has come about the tabernacle in the last two years. This word relates to it.

There are three chambers in the tabernacle, the Outer Court, the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place. Each of the chambers has an amazing amount of typology, symbology and prophetic foreshadow. I highly recommend study of the tabernacle. Check out the chart I made that may be of help.

Click here for Chart.

The Outer Court speaks to the Christians who are saved by grace but have not been sanctified. Since they have not entered into the Holy Place, where the table of showbread and lampstand are located, they are lacking the sanctification the bible clearly teaches is a necessary part of our progress to become overcomers.

The Holy Place symbolizes the Bride of Christ because she is set apart and sanctified by the word of God.

As if being the Bride of Christ were not enough, the Most Holy Place symbolizes the “Friends of God” and the “Friends of the Bridegroom.” This is a very controversial thing and I know many may not track with this, but I am telling you saints that our relationship with Jesus is totally based on the level that we choose. If you want to be Gods friend, then you are invited! And that is what the Lord is saying here. He is going to bring many of His people into an amazing friendship with Him and “unto completion.”

The Holy Spirit is saying “becoming is overcoming.” The more we become like Christ and are formed into His image the more we overcome. The closer we are to Him, the more we become like Him! In reality, this is the most important part of being a Christian, above winning souls and really anything we “do” for the Lord.

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’ ”

Becoming a friend of the Lord will entail coming out of your comfort zone and taking up His heart and agenda, including His pain. I had a dream in September 2016 where I realize now I was given a glimpse of this. In the dream I was on a couch (means my covenant with God) and I saw my “Father” standing in a hallway, (means transition.) The hallway was dark and I could not see Him clearly, but I knew He wanted me to know more about him. I then took a pillow I was holding and covered my head and face because I could not look at Him. This dream is speaking about a transition out of my comfort zone and into the deep knowledge of God, including knowing those things that will make me uncomfortable. Dear Lord, I want to be your friend, help me come out of my comfort zone and “unto completion!”

Much Love in Christ,

Sarah Beveridge

 

PS On December 23, 2016 the Lord gave me clear instructions to write another book. It is so different from anything I could ever think of and I am excited about it and have already started to write. Therefore after writing this post, I will be focusing on writing the new book and you will likely not hear much from me for a while.

Restoring the Foundations: Water Baptism

Restoring the Foundations: Water Baptism

By Sarah Beveridge

I declare to you that Jesus is in the process of restoring what scripture teaches us about many doctrines, such as baptism’s and discipleship. In order to even begin the process of restoring, we must go back to the early church we read about in the book of Acts and re-learn what was established. Not only do we need to re-learn, but we also need to act on what we learn and become “doers of the word” (James 1:22). I once heard a man of God say “scripture we don’t practice is just theory to us.” I believe this is true!

The Lord has been dealing with me on the subject of restoring the foundations for a few years now. I have had many dreams about this and I believe the Lord has given me understanding and wisdom about His move to restore foundational truths. Primarily, Jesus wants me to pray into this “move of God”, but also document the process of uncovering these truths.

For several months I have been led by the Spirit to study scripture and pray about the subject of water baptism and Holy Spirit baptism. The Lord has given me dreams about this subject in order to bring clarity on what He wanted me to discover in my study and focus on in this article. The subject has many facets, and I kept asking the Lord, what do you want me to know? It is possible more will come later. I am sure there are many questions, like who is qualified to baptize a believer?  My short answer is any Christian, not just a pastor. Scripture teaches that we are priests unto God and I feel very strongly that I will be baptizing many people in this coming harvest.

Hopefully what I am presenting here will help bring understanding to the importance of biblical New Testament water baptism and why it is crucial for believers to realize it was a decree made by Jesus Himself (Mat 28:19), as well as see its spiritual significance and that it is not just a ritual.

In this article I will attempt to accomplish three things:

  • I will show you in scripture that God is doing something spiritual in water baptism and it is not just a ritual of identifying with Christ. (Heb 6:1-2, Col 2:11-12, 1 Pet 3:21)
  • There is only ONE type of water baptism taught in scripture (Eph 4:5) and repentant believers should seek the scriptural water baptism immediately when they believe and repent (new birth) to gain the utmost benefit of what God does in baptism. (Acts 2:38-41, 8:36, 22:16.)
  • I believe the Lord Jesus desires us to understand the foundational truth of the importance of water and Spirit baptism and that these are connected to the whole salvation experience according to scripture. (Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38, Rom 6:4, Rom 10:9-10)

Biblical New Testament Water Baptism

Scripture teaches us these things about water baptism:

  • It is for those who believe in Jesus and trust and confess in Jesus as their Savior (born again) (Mark 16:15-16, Rom 10:8-10)
  • It is for those who repent and turn away from their sins (Acts 2:38-41)
  • It is for the forgiveness of sin (Acts 2:38)
  • It is for the cleansing of our conscience toward God (1 Pet 3:21)
  • It is for baptism “into Christ”; we died with Christ, buried our old man, and resurrected to new life by putting on Christ ((Rom 6:3-7, Rom 8:29, Rom 13:14, 2 Cor 3:18, Col 2:11-14, Gal 3:27)
  • It is for deliverance from evil (demons) (Acts 8:6-8, 12, 1 Pet 3:21)
  • It is for receiving the Holy Spirit baptism with the evidence of speaking in tongues (John 1:33, Acts 2;38, Gal 3:27, 1 Cor 12:13)
  • It is part of the whole salvation experience and scripture taken as a whole and in context absolutely teaches this

For the most part, churches today, which do emersion water baptism treat it as a symbol and a ritual of identifying with Christ’s death, burial and resurrection to new life. And this is a very important aspect of water baptism. But what I have observed is there are a few other facets to water baptism that are overlooked and misunderstood. Namely, that water baptism is for the “forgiveness of sin” (Acts 2:38), it is to cleanse us from the effects of sin on our mind and conscience, for deliverance from evil (demons) (Acts 8:5-8, 12, 1 Peter 3:21) for obtaining power over sin (Rom 6), and for receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Although there are examples in scripture where believers received the Holy Spirit first and then were water baptized, and vice versa, the important thing to understand is that the early church performed water baptism on new believers immediately when they believed and repented.

The church was growing and it took time for them to understand how to do things properly, you can read about the various baptisms in these scriptures:

Acts 2:37-42 the upper room, the Apostles and the 3000 souls added to the church.

Acts 8:5-17 the baptism of the Samaritans.

Acts 8:27-40 the baptism of the Ethiopian eunuch.

Acts 10 Cornelius and his family.

Acts 16:25-40 the jailer and his family.

Acts 18 and 19 Apollos and the Ephesian disciples.

Acts 22:16 the baptism of Paul.

I believe the Lord is showing me the importance of new believers receiving water baptism immediately following their confession of faith in Christ and repentance of sin. (New birth.) This is especially important in this time when a great harvest of souls for the Kingdom of God is coming and has already started, and it is expedient that they be water baptized immediately.

The Romans Six Effect

I want to close this section with what the Apostle Paul told the Romans about water baptism, dying with Christ and power over sin. When you read these scriptures in context and mediate on what is really being said in all of Romans chapter 6, clearly the Holy Spirit was showing us the connection between water baptism and breaking the power of sin over our lives. I have heard Romans chapter 6 preached by different pastors and not once did I ever hear them really drive home the connection that the power over sin is through water baptism, which is clearly stated in verses 3-7. When I have read Romans 6 in the past, I completely missed the point and I always wondered, how do I really have power over sin? My prayer is that those of you who have been water baptized but never received this revelation, will get this down in your spirit man. My prayer is that those of you who still struggle with bondage to sin will finally be set free from the power of sin over your life by realizing what really took place when you were “baptized into Christ.” It was not an act of the flesh, God did something supernatural!

Romans 6:1-11 NLT

1 Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? 2 Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it? 3 Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death? 4 For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.

5 Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was. 6 We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ [in water baptism] so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin. 7 For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin. 8 And since we died with Christ, we know we will also live with him. 9 We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and he will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him. 10 When he died, he died once to break the power of sin. But now that he lives, he lives for the glory of God. 11 So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.

 

Baptism-in-Water-Immersion

What about Baptism by Sprinkling and Pouring of Water?

There are many denominations that baptize by sprinkling or pouring water on the head of a believer, as well as baptize infants and children. I was baptized by sprinkling of water in the Methodist church when I was a child. As a matter of fact my whole family was baptized together by sprinkling of water to signify our membership to the church we were attending. Since I was just a child, I have no recollection of my baptism, and certainly it was not connected to repentance. How can infants and children make a determination about their spiritual condition before God? I have since been baptized by full immersion, but I still did not have the full understanding I do now about why water baptism is so important, but I was baptized into Christ and there is no need to be re-baptized.

Sprinkling water baptism was a departure from the apostolic and early church method of immersion and became a common practice in the western church around the 12th – 13th century. Below are some quotes I found about sprinkle baptism that are pulled from various encyclopedias and resource materials.

“In the time of the apostles, the form of baptism was very simple. The person to be baptized was dipped in a river or a vessel, with the words which Christ had ordered, and to express more fully his change of character, generally adopted a new name. The Greek Church retained this custom; but the Western Church adopted in the 13th century the mode of baptism by sprinkling, which has been continued by the Protestants, the Baptists only excepted. The introduction of this mode of baptism was owing to the great inconvenience which arose from the

immersion of the whole body in the northern climates of Europe. (Zell’s Encyclopedia, Art. Baptism, Vol. I, p. 236).

“Sprinkling as a form of baptism took the place of immersion after a few centuries in the early Church, not from any established rule, but by common consent, and it has since been very generally practiced in all but the Greek and Baptist churches, which insist upon immersion.” (McClintock and Strong’s Cyclopedia, Art. Sprinkling, Vol. IX, p. 968).

 “Sprinkling was still (in the period of 323 – 692) confined to Baptismus Clinicorum (clinical baptism) and was first generally used in the West in infant baptism in the 12th century, while the East still retained the custom of immersion.” (Kurts, a German Lutheran Historian, in Church History, Vol. I, p. 367).

”For several centuries after the establishment of Christianity, Baptism was usually conferred by immersion, but since the twelfth century, the practice of baptizing by infusion has prevailed in the Catholic Church, as this manner is attended with less inconvenience than Baptism by immersion.” (Cardinal Gibbons, Faith of Our Fathers, p. 318).

As you just read, sprinkle baptism was adopted as a matter of convenience. The problem is that it has no biblical basis in the New Testament. In the New Testament scriptures, in every sense of the word, “baptize” in the Greek language of the text clearly means “to immerse or submerge in water.”

  • Baptize / Baptized / Baptizing – G907 baptizō: to immerse, to submerge
  • Baptism – G908 baptisma: immersion, submersion

I believe the Lord desires to restore the proper understanding and practice of water baptism, and for His shepherd’s to open their eyes and ears and hear what the Spirit is saying to the church in his hour.

For those who have been sprinkle water baptized, I would seek the Lord about re-baptism. Scripture says in Ephesians 4:5 that there is ONE baptism. The word “one” in Greek G3391 means; “only one, a certain one”

There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 and one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all. Eph 4:5

The certain ONE baptism is the New Testament full immersion water baptism as found in scripture.

Water Baptism, Repentance and Forgiveness of Sin

The baptism of John the Baptist was for repentance and forgiveness of sin. (Mat 3:1-6, Luke 3:3, Acts 13:24, Acts 18:25 etc.) John told those he baptized that they were to believe in the One coming after him, and He (Christ) would baptize them with the Holy Spirit. The baptism of John was a sort of transitional bridge between the dispensation of the Law of Moses and the dispensation of Christ.

“John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. 5 And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. Mark 1:4-5

“And he went into all the region around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins,” Luke 3:3

Water baptism in connection to repentance and forgiveness of sin did not change after the Lords resurrection and ascension. However, the baptism of John was not complete because it did not constitute baptism into the Lord Jesus Christ, who fulfills water baptism.

Scripture teaches us that when the church was born and began to grow, they still understood that water baptism involved repentance and forgiveness of sin. What was added to John’s baptism was the baptism into Christ and the baptism with the Holy Spirit.

Peter instructs the church about water baptism related to repentance and forgiveness of sin when he spoke these words as recorded in the book of Acts. He is clarifying that even though many had been baptized by John, they must now be baptized into Christ.

Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38 NLT

Acts chapter 22 records a scene that took place in Damascus after the conversion of the Apostle Paul.

Ananias speaking to Paul:

‘And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.’ Acts 22:16

I think it is worth mentioning here that it is important to understand the distinction between the blood of Jesus that “cleanses us of our sin” by atoning for our sin (1 John 1:7, 1 John 2:2) and water baptism that “washes away our sins” through our repentance and God’s forgiveness, therefore we receive a clean conscience toward God. (1 Pet 3:21)

I believe emphatically that there is something deeply spiritual that God is doing in water baptism. If we worship God in “Spirit and in Truth” (John 4:24) then why wouldn’t baptism also encompass this reality?  Read on as I expand on this.

Water Baptism and the Flood of Noah

In 1 Peter chapter 3, Peter is teaching the church about water baptism when he points out that the flood in Noah’s day is foreshadow of water baptism for Christians.

Because Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, to bring you to God, by being put to death in the flesh but by being made alive in the spirit. 19 In it he went and preached to the spirits in prison, 20 after they were disobedient long ago when God patiently waited in the days of Noah as an ark was being constructed. In the ark a few, that is eight souls, were delivered through water. 21 And this prefigured baptism, which now saves you – not the washing off of physical dirt but the pledge of a good conscience to God – through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22  who went into heaven and is at the right hand of God with angels and authorities and powers subject to him. 1 Peter 3:18-22 NKJV

If you read that scripture in the Amplified version below, Peter says we are saved by baptism in that our minds are set free from inward fear and questioning by cleansing our guilty conscience. (Water baptism does not atone for sin like the blood of Jesus, but clearly it is part of the whole salvation experience.)

Peter also says the water is not washing physical dirt from the flesh. In other words, the act of baptism is not an act of the flesh. But rather, the water is washing away the sin that polluted our minds and is spiritually washing our conscience toward God, when we repent and put on Christ. Peter also says that water baptism delivers us from evil!

Let’s look at 1 Peter 3:20-21 in the Amplified version:

20 [The souls of those] who long before in the days of Noah had been disobedient, when God’s patience waited during the building of the ark in which a few [people], actually eight in number, were saved through water. And baptism, which is a figure [of their deliverance], does now also save you [from inward questionings and fears], not by the removing of outward body filth [bathing], but by [providing you with] the answer of a good and clear conscience (inward cleanness and peace) before God [because you are demonstrating what you believe to be yours] through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 3:20-21

If we look at the symbolism of foreshadow of baptism in the flood of Noah I see there is deliverance from evil. Noah and his family were not just delivered or saved by the ark from the flood, which is a type of Christ saving us from Gods wrath. But Noah was also delivered from wickedness and evil when they entered the ark. And the water of the flood destroyed the evil, ungodly and wicked by literally washing them away. I believe this is showing us that deliverance from demons is taking place in water baptism. 

The pre-figure of the flood of Noah teaches us that God sent the flood, and the flood was the end of evil and the beginning of a new life.  Do you see the connection to water baptism? It was God who sent the flood to cleanse the evil!

I believe it is VERY important to understand there is more taking place in water baptism than many of us have previously assumed. Any believer that has not been properly water baptized should be. This will set you on the proper foundation and deliver you from evil and cleanse your guilt concerning your sin and give you power over sin once and for all.

Water Baptism and Deliverance in the Book of Acts

In Acts chapter 8, Philip the deacon is preaching in Samaria.

5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them. 6 And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. 7 For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed. 8 And there was great joy in that city. Acts 8:5-8

12 But when they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized. Acts 8:12

I believe we can surmise from these scriptures that those who were baptized because of Philips preaching of Christ in verse 12 are the same Samaritans he preached to in verse 5-7 who had unclean spirits come out of them.

I believe the Lord is stressing this principle because He wants His people set free and delivered from demons just like they were in the book of Acts. The deliverance of evil can be accomplished in water baptism!

If the pastors and shepherds could see this, they can be a huge help in setting Gods people free.

During water baptism it is important to be led by the Holy Spirit to pray appropriately and tarry with the individual during their water baptism to ensure that all the Lord wants to occur in that water baptism is completed. Including, repentance and cleansing of the guilt of sin, deliverance from demons and Holy Spirit baptism.

Water Baptism and the Spirit, Soul and Body of Man

I received a word of knowledge from the Lord in 2014 where He clearly said to me “the pattern of the Tabernacle overlays everything.” I wrote about that in my book, My God and Your Jesus Christ, a Letter to my Brethren.”

Here is an image of the Tabernacle I made, click to enlarge:

Tabernacle of Moses PNG (2)

What I see in scripture concerning water baptism and Holy Spirit baptism and the Tabernacle pattern is this. The human being is three parts; body, soul and spirit. This coincides with the tabernacle pattern as follows:

  1. Outer Court= body
  2. Sanctuary/Holy Place= soul
  3. Most Holy Place= spirit

Scripture teaches us that the Lord is interacting with each part of us to sanctify our whole being. For example, here are a couple scriptures:

Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.          I Thes 5:23

We know that our old (unrenewed) self was nailed to the cross with Him in order that [our] body [which is the instrument] of sin might be made ineffective and inactive for evil, that we might no longer be the slaves of sin. Romans 6:6

Water baptism interacts with each part of an individual in this way:

  1. Body: through water baptism we are set free from demons which reside in the flesh of man, our flesh is circumcised and put off as we put on Christ. (Rom 6:3-5, 1 Pet 3:21, Col 2:11-12, Gal 3:27)
  2. Soul: the soul is comprised of the mind, will and emotions. In water baptism, after we have repented and been forgiven, our soul/mind is then cleansed from condemnation and a guilty conscience. We are given a clean conscience toward God and He does not want us to have shame for what has been forgiven. The soul is cleansed from the effects of sin on our mind and emotions. Therefore we have peace knowing we are forgiven. (Rom 8:1-2, 1 Pet 3:21)
  3. Spirit: our spirit is called the “inner man” or “heart”, this is where the Holy Spirit resides in man. When we are water baptized and receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, then Christ has come to make His home in our heart, our inner man. (Eph 3:16-17, John 14:23)

Water and Spirit Baptism is the Entrance to Sanctification

In the outer court of the Tabernacle is what is called the “bronze laver.”  It was a basin, or large bowl filled with water located halfway between the brazen altar and the Holy Place. The priests were to wash their hands and their feet in it before entering the Holy Place.

Like everything in the Tabernacle it is symbolic and relevant to us as Christians. The symbolism and foreshadow is of water and Spirit baptism. It also symbolizes washing of the water of the word. (Eph 5:26)

The laver was located in the outer court to signify that Christians are to be cleansed of their old life through water baptism and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit for their new life. The entrance to the Holy Place is then steps away from the laver. Entering into the Holy place symbolizes the life long process of sanctification of a believer and follower of Christ.

Conclusion

Scripture is showing us there is something powerful and spiritually supernatural that occurs in water baptism. There is inward cleanness and peace toward God, as well as power over sin. This is not a ritualistic experience, it is a spiritual experience and God is definitely doing something in water baptism.

There is a string of events occurring just prior to and during water baptism that we need to break down and be aware of. This is important because it speaks to the whole salvation experience. Some of these things we do and some are what God does.

  • We believe by faith and call upon the name of Jesus and put our trust in Him as our Savior (We do this)
  • We repent and change our mind about our behavior, recognizing we have sinned and accept Gods will ( We do this)
  • Our sins are forgiven and washed away and we receive power over sin (God does this)
  • Our conscience is cleansed and we now have inward peace toward God (God does this)
  • We are delivered of evil, demons actually leave the body (God does this)
  • The Holy Spirit comes and “baptizes” the believer and there is the evidence of speaking in tongues (this is the sign given to know a person has received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, otherwise how would you know?) and now the believer is empowered to operate in the gifts of the Spirit (God does this)

Clearly God is performing a string of very spiritual events in water baptism, and it is much more than a ritual. It is a very essential component to salvation. The culmination of all these events is a strong Christian who has been set on a solid foundation that was established by Christ (Mat 28:18-20). They have truly been born of water and of Spirit.

“Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.” John 3:5

They have repented, been cleansed of guilt, been delivered from evil, received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, made into a new creation, and now have everything needed to overcome sin, operate in the gifts of the Spirit, produce fruit of the Spirit and start a new life as a disciple of Jesus Christ.

The Lord has stressed to me that we are not to compare ourselves and our experiences to each other, but we are to measure ourselves and experiences according to the word of God. Again I want to emphasize the most important thing is to understand what the Bible teaches about water and Spirit baptism and not to use experience to validate truth. If Jesus is “restoring the foundations”, then obviously He does not want us to compare our experiences to each other but to measure all things according to the word of God.

If anyone has uncertainty about anything the best action to take is to pray and ask the Lord to guide you, and of course study this yourself as we are instructed. (2 Tim 2:15)

Much love to you all,

In Christ,

Sarah Beveridge

Restoring the Foundation Laid by Christ

Restoring the Foundation Laid by Christ

In 2014 I had a dream from the Lord where he showed me He was moving to restore His foundation and He wanted me to pray into this “move of God”.

In the dream I was in a bathroom which represents a place of cleansing, repentance and restoration. The floor was made of concrete and this represented the foundation which was laid by Christ. On top of the concrete foundation were piles of books, files, folders and papers that were stacked against the wall.  These represented the doctrines and traditions of men.

They were stacked against the wall because this symbolized how these doctrines and teachings have become a barrier and obstacle to truth. On top of the books and papers, laid over the concrete floor, was a cheap linoleum flooring. The cheap linoleum flooring symbolized how the doctrines of men have covered up the true foundation of Christ, and this is what much of Christianity stands on now, a cheap imitation. The Lord then appeared to me in the dream and we began to move furniture out of the bathroom. This meant that the Lord was “moving” to restore His foundation and the false doctrines must be cleansed from the church.

I believe this has already started. Since I had that dream I have been praying into this and now I see the Lord IS moving powerfully to open eyes and restore His truth. If you have not already done so, please watch the movie “The Last Reformation – The Beginning.”  It is powerful, and an awesome confirmation to me of what the Lord is doing.

A Shadow of the Restoration of All Things

The scriptures declare that there will be a restoration of all things in Acts 3:21.

19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, 21 whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.

That scripture will have its ultimate fulfillment in the coming millennial reign of Christ. But note the wording “times of restoration.” This means there are restorations that will be occurring prior to that ultimate fulfillment. And this has already started!

But I need to clarify here that I am not talking about a false doctrine known as dominionism. Many other scriptures clearly tell us conditions on this earth will wax worse and worse and evil and gross darkness will cover the earth and the people. These conditions are already here. But in the midst of these dark times that are like the days of Noah and Lot, the true church is growing up, rising up, and will overcome all of it to be all that Jesus has called us to be. And this maturing and restoring is a work of the Holy Spirit and God’s grace!

 

Restoring Truth and Rebuilding the Old Waste Places

In June of 2015 I had another dream related to this move of the Lord about restoring His foundation. I made a video about it here.

I just want to remind anyone reading this that dreams are very symbolic, just like the parables of Jesus, where one thing symbolizes something else. Keep in mind that the Lord speaks in many ways.

In the dream I was in a town called “Alta Vista” which means, a view from above. I knew that a woman named “Nona” was moving there. Nona means “nine” and therefore symbolized the Holy Spirit, since there are nine fruits of the Spirit. As I was driving on the main street of the town, I saw that all the buildings were crumbling and decaying and falling down, and there were row after row of these decaying buildings. Then I came to the other end of town and there were new buildings under construction. New foundations were being poured and there was scaffolding set up where the walls of the new buildings were under construction. The new buildings were built on the side of huge hill which symbolized Mt Zion, Gods Holy Mountain. Mt Zion in scripture was Gods dwelling place, and we are now His dwelling place. So this dream is about rebuilding and restoring His church, corporately and as individuals.

The scripture I was given was Isaiah 58:12.

Those from among you
Shall build the old waste places;
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,
The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.

 

Truth is Disappearing

In a time when truth is disappearing, God has reserved for Himself 7000 that have not bowed their knee to Baal. What this means, spiritually speaking, is that God has always had a remnant who follow Him only, this is true for our time as well. And these people will overcome great odds to persevere and overcome, and that is because JESUS is their head and not a religious system. (1 Cor 11:3)

The Lord appointed for Himself apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, (Eph 4:11, 12) and they are appointed to build on the foundation that Christ laid, which is Himself. (1 Cor 3:11, Eph 2:20, Mat 16:18).

And what this means is that these men and women are not to be over top of the people, but rather UNDERGIRDING the people, as a foundation with Christ as the chief cornerstone.  Therefore helping to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. (Servanthood.)

The New Testament church pattern was never established to be a top down pyramid structure. The top-down structure in the church comes from the pagan Roman system. That is why Jesus said he hates the deeds and doctrines of the Nicolaitans in Revelation 2:6 and 15. Nicolaitan means “destruction of people.” (Strong’s G3531.)

The Nicolaitans caused the people of God to commit spiritual adultery. Sadly, the same is true today.

The Lord is now moving to restore His foundation and a lot of those who are at the top of this man-man church structure are not going to be happy about it. Because just like the Nicolaitans, they like being in control. But for those who are doing God’s will and allowing Jesus to be their head, and following Him where ever He goes, then there is nothing to worry about.

I pray that the body of Christ will pray into this move of God. I pray we will humbly allow the Holy Spirit to lead us in this restoration of the church structure to the proper foundation that was established by Christ. We have everything to gain!

To God be the Glory!

In Christ,

2015 Year End Recap of My Prophetic Dreams

solar-eclipse1
Total Solar Eclipse March 20, 2015

 

December 31, 2015

Greetings Dear Saints!

This recap of 2015 is based on many, but not all of the things the Lord has shown me in dreams, visions and revelations mostly for the purpose of intercessory prayer. There were so many things that I had to leave some of them out for the sake of length.

Since my ministry is to the church, these things concern the bride of Christ and the body of Christ and what I believe and discern the Lord is presently doing and will do. I did speak about much of this in videos, but thought it would be a good idea to do a recap so I can pray into these things and I ask you all to join me.

As a scribe and prophetic intercessor, 2015 was a very fruitful year, thanks only to Jesus Christ. I entered into my 7th year ministering on-line through blogging and YouTube videos. The Lord kept me very busy in 2015, and last year at this time the Lord supernaturally empowered me to write the book “My God and Yours Jesus Christ, A letter to My Brethren” in about 15 days. I offered it as a free e-book download and then in February the Lord provided the funds to get the book printed. I gave away hundreds of copies through YouTube and my website, just charging the shipping.

The Lord showed me the book would help some Christians by pulling them up and helping them understand the responsibility they have in their sanctification and maturing process. Praise God for this! It was an incredible gift from God to me to be able to help some of His people!

 

Judgment Begins in the House of God

In 2015 I was shown many things the Lord wanted me to pray for and mostly that His will be done in these things. He showed me that judgment begins in the house of God and that started in earnest in 2015 and will continue because God chastens those He loves. Jesus WILL have a beautiful bride who has made herself ready, but also, He is helping us get ready, you can count on that!

The Lord confirmed to me that a dream I posted on YouTube on July 5, 2015 has been fulfilled. The dream was about a church leader that was going to be pruned according to the first part of John 15: 2 where it says… “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away.

In the dream I saw a very tall tree having branches cut off at the very top. There was a measuring line coming out from God that also turned into a net. The Lord was warning us not to get caught in that net and His measuring line by judging those He was chastening or we may find ourselves in the same position. We must always remember what the Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 10:12…”Let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall.”

The Lord further confirmed the cleansing of His leaders and removing of the unclean with a very interesting prophetic experience I had. On Christmas morning as I was walking my dog near a giant evergreen tree, all of a sudden I heard a rustling sound in the tree that startled me. I then saw a hawk fly out of the tree with a rat in its talons. When I saw this happen I felt a knowing in my spirit that this was a prophetic sign. When I prayed about it the Lord revealed that it did indeed point to what He is doing in His leadership of His church. Trees symbolize leaders in scripture, see Daniel chapter 4. And a rat is an unclean thing. And just as a hawk has precise vision and can see up to 8 times more clearly than the sharpest human eye, the Lord sees all! And He is dealing with what He sees in His people, and most especially His leaders in the church. Jesus is demanding a greater level of accountability now. We have no excuses for not understanding the times and seasons. Jesus is dealing with the false doctrines, the false foundation, the lack of teaching the full council of God and those who usurp the Glory of God which only belongs to Him! As the people of God, it is time to take responsibility for our actions, our words, and also our motives.

With all this said, the Lord has also impressed upon me the necessity of humility and not to judge others and to let Him be the judge, which is His job. Our job is to discern good from bad, light from darkness and separate from that darkness, and all the false teaching. It is NOT our job to condemn and castigate other Christians. The Lord will raise up elders to correct, rebuke and eventually restore. We are to pray for them and love them, therefore fulfilling the law of Christ.

 

The Spirit of Divination is Operating in the Church

In 2015 the Lord gave me two very sobering dreams warning about a spirit of divination that is operating in the church. I really believe the Lord is allowing this as judgment because the prophetic movement in the Christian church is way out of sync with God in so many ways. This is a huge topic and I won’t go in depth here, but know this, the spirit of divination operates in many ways and at many levels; in individuals, in ministries and in churches.

From what I was shown in one dream, the spirit was like that of a “psychic” who is really a fortune teller telling people their fortune for money. There was a folded check on the stairs that was for the “psychic” because she had given someone a “reading.” This has been confirmed by other Christians who gave me a testimony of going to churches where a “prophet” would be giving a “prophetic reading” for $25.00. I also heard about corporations that actually hire prophets to advise them and are paid for it. I also recently saw a video on YouTube of a “prophet” on a stage at a church “prophesying” as the people rushed the stage to place checks on the stairs, just like I saw in the dream! It was very grievous! That appeared to me to be a spirit of lust and mammon operating as well.

This evil spirit is manifesting in many ways and those who have a prophetic calling must be vigilant or the Lord will allow it to come in because of an open door of agreement with that spirit. Staying intimate with Jesus, complete obedience to Him and His word, repentance, and testing of the spirits is the only antidote for protection from the spirit of divination.

 

The Cost of Discipleship Went Up in 2015 by the Light of the Blood Moon

In late December 2014 the Lord showed me that the cost of discipleship would go up by the light of the blood moon. That started in 2015 with the unfolding and fulfilling of the “days of Lot” prophecy spoken of by Jesus in Luke 17:28. The days of Lot have come upon America and many other nations with the acceptance, embracing and legalizing of the homosexual agenda by legalizing same sex marriage.

In the dream I saw a rack of bread labeled “Blood Moon Bread.” A man told me to buy the “Blood Moon Bread” but there were two prices on the bread, $7.99 and $15.99. I thought Wow, that’s expensive! The man told me to buy the more expensive bread. Then he directed me to a light fixture that was the color of the blood moon. He said “buy the blood moon light”– which was a play on words. I originally understood the dream to mean that literally food prices would double by the light of the blood moon. But after Tabernacles 2015, and the unfolding of what happened to Kim Davis when she refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, and therefore was arrested, I knew by the Spirit there was a different message here.

Jesus told His disciples to count the cost to follow Him. There is no cost to get saved, it is a free gift. But true discipleship will cost us. And I believe the Lord is telling His people that the cost to be a true follower and disciple of Jesus has now doubled. We must be ready to count that cost NOW.

 

Defiling of the Bride of Christ

In 2015 the Lord showed me that the bride of Christ has got to be vigilant with what we take in and what comes out of our mouths. We must guard ourselves from the schemes of satan and the fallen ones meant to defile the bride of Christ.

The Lord showed me that listening to music inspired by the fallen and watching all the filth in movies, TV and the Internet was defiling his people and opening doors to the demonic.

The Lord has stressed to me the importance of taking hold of our unclean mouth.

Matthew 15:11 “Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.”

We must stop speaking in agreement with the kingdom of darkness and STOP letting the accuser use our mouth to accuse and castigate others. Instead we need to speak life and proclaim and decree the word of God and come into agreement with the Kingdom of Light, which is Gods glorious Kingdom. If we can do this, then our life will truly start to look more like Christ and we are then positioning ourselves to grow into the full measure of the stature of Christ. This should be the goal of every disciple of Jesus.

 

Excel in Uncharted Territory

The following dream revelation was a personal message from the Lord, but I also felt it should be shared because I know I am not alone in what this is saying. What I saw was very simple, an Excel spreadsheet that looked like this below, with the word “uncharted” typed in many cells. Some were in uppercase “U” and some were not.

Uncharted
As I prayed about this I understood what the Lord was saying. We are entering into a time when many things we will be confronted with in many areas of our life and walk with Jesus, will be “Uncharted” territory. But the Lord was assuring me that we will “Excel” in this “Uncharted” territory. Praise God!!

 

Born to Die

The Lord has stressed to me the importance of the Galatians 2:20 and Romans 6:8 principle.

20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,

It was not only Jesus that was born to die, but WE also were born to die. Our old man must be put to death so that Christ can live through us. How many of you know this is not so easy? That is because we will never be able to achieve the end result with our flesh and our human effort. It is a work of the Spirit of Christ, but we must come into agreement with the Lord’s will and word and cooperate with Him by praying for this. Pray that God will give you the GRACE to be dead to Christ so that He can live through you! It will be God’s grace that will enable this to happen! Jesus WILL be Glorified in His Bride! AMEN!

 

An Ancient Secret, An Ancient Promise; Comfort and Warning

In 2015 there were other important revelations the Lord dealt with me about and I have been praying into those things. Namely, Jesus wants to wake up the rebellious and backslidden who are not redeeming the time we still have to prepare to stand before the “Sun of Righteousness” (Malachi 4:2) at His Appearing and the great assembly of the Saints also known as the resurrection/rapture. The Lord showed me through the March 20, 2015 total solar eclipse of the sun that the catching away is coming! How soon, I don’t know, however, that was a sign for His people to be comforted in knowing it is coming.

The eclipse itself illustrates the Bride standing before the Son of God. The bride is symbolized by the moon because the moon reflects the light of the sun. In a solar eclipse the moon appears to stand before the sun, which symbolizes the “Sun of Righteousness” at His appearing with His Bride standing before Him. The eclipse occurred in the Northern Hemisphere, the north is a sign to the backslidden and lost. North in scripture signifies a backslidden and rebellious state, see Jeremiah 3:12 and Zechariah 2:6. The Lord is speaking loudly through the signs in the heavens, just like He said He would in many scriptures. The question is, are we truly listening?

I will share a vision I had years ago while in prayer with a group of Saints. I saw the Lord very huge in the sky and His people were shooting up into the sky to meet Him. The people looked like lights going up at a great speed. I was observing this scene, and then I looked to my left and down and saw the earth on fire and completely engulfed in flames. I realize now after the Lord brought this vision to my memory recently that He was taking His people out of the earth as His wrath was being poured out. Take this for whatever its worth, but I believe it goes with Luke 21:36…watch and pray always that you may be able escape all that is about to happen and to stand before the Son of Man.

 

A Great Outpouring and Move of Gods Spirit and a Harvest is Coming

The Lord repeatedly showed me in 2014 and 2015 a great move of God that is coming. I believe it will be an unprecedented outpouring of His Spirit and that the Radiant Glory of God will come upon vessels who will bring in a harvest.

Here is a list of some of the things I have been shown that are directly communicating what God has planned:

  • I was shown a giant shower head in the sky with water pouring out of it and upon the earth.
  • I saw a huge white power boat with gold stripes come out of a garage where it had been parked, and it powerfully sped toward me. It was towing a trailer which symbolizes what God is bringing with this powerful move, namely miracles, healing, deliverance and salvation. A boat symbolizes a move of God among peoples and nations.
  • I saw the Lord dive into the bottom of the ocean, which symbolizes peoples and nations.
  • I was shown that the Lord will use “vessels” that have been prepared to contain His glory. They will not be in this for themselves and they will not merchandise the anointing, but they will allow Jesus to make His home in them and He will work through them.
  • I was shown a powerful surge of Gods power is coming. In a dream I was in a  large passenger airplane that took off over dark waters and then the pilot kicked the plane into gear and it accelerated at an incredible speed upward. I was pressed back into my seat with incredible force.
  • I saw that the Lord is going to be “resurrected” in France and the nation is going to see God come alive and His church in France will be brought back to life.
  • I was also shown in a dream that the harvesters are not all on board yet. A man named Terry, which means harvest, came aboard a huge sail boat and said lets go. The giant sail boat then set off on dry land and then turned over because the people who were supposed to be there manning the sails were not on board yet. The dry land meant that the Lord has yet to pour out His Spirit and grace to ready to harvesters and those to be harvested.

The coming harvest and move of God is absolutely found in scripture. Doubters, please allow the Holy Spirit to minister His word when you read James 5:7-8 and Hosea 6:3, because these prophecies, and others relating to this, will be fulfilled in our time.

James 5:7 Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. 8 You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.

 Hosea 6:3 Let us know, ​​Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD.

​​His going forth is established as the morning; ​​He will come to us like the rain, ​​Like the latter and former rain to the earth.

The harvest will also fulfill Matthew 22:8-14 in our time.

8 Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. 9 Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’ 10 So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests.

11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. 12 So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. 13 Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ 14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.”

I believe the ones who had no wedding garment are those who did not prepare. Many simply just don’t believe the word of God and will be completely taken off guard by the events that are coming. Unbelief is one of the worst sins in the church! Now is the time to believe God and His word and prepare to meet Jesus!

 

There is Nothing New Under the Sun

I believe that the first coming of Jesus as told in the Gospels has a wealth of hidden revelation for us to see how some things are and will play out in our time. The first coming of Jesus was completely missed by the religious order of that day, and they knew the word of God! It was only the elect of the Jews who were able to recognize their Messiah, and that was only because God himself revealed it to them. (Mat 16:16-17, Acts 9:1-6). I believe that the Lord is revealing and will continue to unseal truth in His word prior to His second coming that is going to surprise many Christians. This is why I have set my heart to be open to the Spirit of God and not hold to the traditions and teachings of men with regards to these things. I believe without a shadow of a doubt events will transpire differently than we have thought and been taught. A dogmatic attitude is usually a recipe for a humbling from the Lord. I have learned this FIRST HAND!

Scripture says there is nothing new under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 ​​That which has been is what will be, ​​That which is done is what will be done, ​​And there is nothing new under the sun.

10 ​​Is there anything of which it may be said, ​​“See, this is new”? ​​It has already been in ancient times before us.   

With that said, I don’t see a great revival within the current institutionalized church systems. What I see in scripture is more of a reformation. And here is why I think this. When Jesus came the first time, the religious order of that day consisted of Pharisees and Sadducees, who Jesus accused of being hypocrites, white washed tombs, and brood of vipers, among other disparaging terms. The “church” of that time was a mess and completely out of tune with God, and that is exactly the same situation we see today in the institutionalized church systems.

The elect who followed Jesus were part of that system, but they came out of it and formed something new. Now please don’t misunderstand what I am saying. Not all churches are bad and of course there are many great churches that have Spirit filled Christians with integrity in them and operating them. But for the most part, the institutionalized church system has many problems, mainly because they don’t allow Jesus to be the head and have subverted His foundation.

At the first coming of Jesus, the glory of the Lord had long departed the temple and the religious order of that day was not of Gods making. I believe the same is true for our time. That does not mean God is not going to revive His people who are asleep and backslidden within those churches, because I believe that is His will. He is attempting to do so now and that will continue on into 2016.

With all this said I was shown some things in dreams that very much looked like God is planning on “renovating” and “reforming” His church. Whether this speaks of the institutionalized church, just His body, or both, I am not certain. In any case here is a just one example of the things I have been shown in 2015 concerning “renovating” the church:

I was in a huge house that represented the church. There was no furniture in the house and I understood it was being renovated. A man walked in and placed a trophy on a table where other trophy’s had been “turned in.” The Lord said to me “No longer will my people reward themselves. I will give to each His reward.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That ends my recap of many of the things the Lord has revealed to me in 2015. My deepest desire is to see the Lords will be done in these end times. Jesus deserves to get His way Saints! Because this is really HIS STORY, and He is coming soon, first to claim His Bride, and then to reclaim His earth!!

To Him be the Glory!

May God bless you in 2016!

In Christ, Sarah Beveridge

 

PS I am working on “2016 and Beyond” which will have the revelation the Lord has given me for 2016. Look for it soon!

 

Speaking forth and Releasing the WORD of the Lord and the coming Move of God

Read the book of Matthew and ask the Holy Spirit for revelation! If we want to know what God is going to do, we need to understand what He has done in the past!!

Releasing the WORD of the Lord

This was dropped in my spirit on December 16, 2015. It was so strong on me that I knew I had to write this down. I have been releasing this by speaking it forth in prayer and declaring this over Gods people.

The move of God that is coming will be in the streets, highways and byways according to Matthew 22:9-10. This will pave the way for the Lords Kingdom that will permeate all of society on the earth for 1000 years. Church will move into the marketplace and society at large. The old tent revival where people came to be healed and delivered is an old model. The new way, which is really the old way when Jesus came the first time, will see a multitude of deliverances done by a multitude of deliverers in the streets, the workplace, marketplace, Internet etc. The deliverers will go to the people just like Jesus and His disciples did. People will be set free, healed and delivered with a WORD! Just like Jesus when He met the woman at the well and told her everything she ever did, we will meet people where they are, give them a clear and precise word, and they will believe, repent and be delivered! Praise God, let it be so Lord!

ABOUT ME:

I am a scribe and prophetic intercessor in my 8th year of ministering on-line.
In 2015, the Lord radically shifted me to the task of calling the bride of Christ to her proper position at the right hand of Christ. The book “My God and Yours, Jesus Christ” is my first book and it is a very important message from the Lord for those who are called and chosen and have ears to hear that time is almost up, and NOW is the time to make ourselves ready! (2 Cor 11:2, Rev 19:7, Col 3:1, Eph 1:3, 20, Eph 2:6)
Jesus already paid the price and established the victory. It is His will that we walk in that victory and overcome this world! My heart is to see Gods people come to know Him in a deeper way and be the overcomers that He intensely desires us to be. That is my goal as well, since I make no claim to be perfect, I am running the race set before me to win the prize! I am a friend of Jesus…and I just believe God! Maranatha!

The Gospel is about a Father who sent His Son to restore other sons & daughters back to the Father. When we see unbelievers look at them as one of those sons!
