    • The COMING GLORY Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org © 2009 Prophetic words on the coming glory…. Christ is Being Birthed in Us Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org priscilla@etpv.org 10-17-99 Christ is being birthed in us, our hope of glory. Stay steadfast in seeking HIM...for the day of the revealing of the sons of God is close at hand. Be holy as He is holy He said. Only by staying in union and communion with Him can we OVERCOME. The time has come to call a solemn fast unto the Lord. A holy fast to break the bonds of wickedness, to release the bondage of the enemy and to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord - to deliver the captives and to bring comfort tot he brokenhearted. Is the fast I have chosen, says the Lord? Is it not to provide food for the hungry and poor? to put away the pointing of the finger. THEN your righteousness will spring forth and your brightness to the light of day. You will run and not grow weary. You will walk and not faint. You will mount up with wings as eagles....under the shadow of HIS wings. Proclaim a fast. Call a sacred assembly. The annointing that comes will break the yoke on every man , woman or child who is stricken, oppressed, or afflicted. Beware the devices of the enemy. My GRACE is sufficient for you. The Lord is rising up with HEALING in His wings....and a sword in HIS MOUTH that will truly divide the bone from the marrow, and the chaff from the wheat. Do NOT fear the circumstances around you, and do not fear man more than GOD ! WORSHIP the Lord with abandonment !!! Minister unto the lord in His holy tabernacle. Cry unto the Lord for the nations of the world and for the church of Jesus Christ.....for the dragon is enraged with the woman.......for she is about to give BIRTH...and the child she is about to bring forth will be a HOLY NATION unto God! A new generation of believers, a showpiece of His great LOVE and POWER...set aside for HIS purposes. {song: Praise the Lord all ye peoples of the earth. Praise Him all ye heavenly hosts. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.} The Lord is a rewarder of those who faithfully serve HIM. He is not SLACK concerning His promises. Hold on to ALL THAT IS ETERNAL and His glory will be yours, forever and ever. Praise to the Lord Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth! Praise to His holy 1
    • name! His love endures forever. Praise to His glorious name ! Rejoice and be glad for the Lord your God is with you ! Rejoice, and again I say REJOICE ! Attack by this method ! Defend by this method ! Proclaim MY GOODNESS throughout the land ! For I am not a harsh judge, but gentle and lowly came I, and next I will come in GLORY to judge the living and the dead ! I AM the great I AM ! I will provide your every need ! I am with you and my love and resources fail not ! Your GOD supplies your every need, so rejoice and be gracious unto all who are in Christ Jesus. Forgive all as I have forgiven YOU. STAY in My word ! Strengthen the feeble-hearted and the unbelieving. I AM the King of Glory Priscilla Van Sutphin 1-10-00 The enemy has sown the seeds of rebellion , hatred and witchcraft into the youth, even the seeds of the righteous and he gloats everyday over those he thinks he has entrapped in bondage to pornography, violence, perversion, defiance, hatred, strife, and all the works of the anti-Christ. But I AM the KING of GLORY! And I WILL have My way with the YOUTH of the world. I WILL bring down the idolatry to entertainment, alcohol, lust and drugs in this nation and all over the world. My river is just a trickle now compared to what is coming as a flood upon a very dry and cracked ground. And I WILL turn the hearts of the fathers and mothers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their parents and to their heavenly FATHER. And they will know My love for them. I WILL pour out My revelation upon your sons and daughters beyond anything I've done so far and you will be astounded and shocked to see what I WILL do. Stand firm, My Bride for your day of visitation is AT HAND ! Do not be dismayed at My judgements. Judgement begins in the house of the Lord. Remember that it is My love that brings correction. My GIDEONS are coming forth ! They are the least in their Father's house in the eyes of men. But they are MIGHTY WARRIORS in My eyes, and embued with the power of the LION of JUDAH to tear down the altars of pride, greed, envy, competition and jealousy in the house of the Lord. I AM coming as well to My Bride to fill her up with the POWER of MY LOVE and JUSTICE to take back the land from the enemy. The Son of Righteousness is RISING with HEALING in His wings! The earth will be filled with My GLORY before the great and terrible Day of the Lord ! Men's hearts will faint in fear and many will be SHOCKED into submission, for they have been wracked with UNBELIEF for so long. But I WILL rule and reign in MY church ! I WILL ROAR out of ZION and the earth will tremble and the enemy will flee at the sound of MY voice through My prophets and apostles. Do not grow weary in well-doing My beloved, for the Lord Your God is with you. I AM EMMANUEL ! And I WILL be with you in all that you do and wherever you go. Many will be sent UNDERCOVER into the nations and I WILL shake kingdoms and 2
    • nations AS YOU WORSHIP ME ! Ask for the nations and I WILL give them to for an inheritance! I WILL fill you up with MY compassion for the lost if you will but ask for it. Ask and you WILL receive ! Travail of soul will come upon my intercessors and I WILL pour out all that is needed to accomplish what I give you to do. Worry NOT ! Fret NOT ! This time of testing is only to bring forth PURITY in MY bride. Throw your cares upon Me and see what you'll see! Trust in ME for I care FOR you ! Walk in FAITH and the power of MY might ! Faint not for the Day of the Lord is at hand ! Let your GENTLENESS be known to all men. (Phil.4:5) In your weakness I am made strong ! Let RIGHTEOUSNESS spring forth ! Lean not on your own understanding, but in all things, acknowledge My ways, and I WILL make your path straight ! COME, and worship Me in Spirit and in truth ! 4-6-2000 Judgment will be swift to the unbelieving in and out of My church. But, I WILL FLOOD the earth with My GLORY. And every knee will bow, and every tongue confess that I AM the LORD. I AM THE LORD OF THE HARVEST. I AM THE LORD OF HOSTS ! OPPOSITION is working, but I AM BIGGER THAN THE OPPOSITION ! MY WAYS ARE NOT YOUR WAYS ! Go to the prisons, go to the sick and infirm, go to the old, go to the single parents and fatherless children, go to the widows and orphans. Raise up the foundations and streets. Take authority in MY NAME and call things that aren't as though they were ! USE FAITH , and SEE WHAT I WILL DO ! This is not a revolution of stars and fame, but of nameless, faceless people like most natural revolutions. I will use WHOM I WILL USE ! Those who take credit and are assigned positions and power to make a name for themselves will not be used like those who give to me the glory ascribed to My name ! Revolution is Coming 20-7-2000 0215 hrs Grace and mercy are kissing each other says the Lord. Are you ready for a revolution? This will violently, abruptly, suddenly erupt upon you and you will not possibly be prepared for what I'm about to do. But HAVE NO FEAR ! You, My church, will fear for what I'm about to do will astound and confound you! Do not try to pour this movement into the old wineskin of formalism. The old wineskin is RANK and MOLDY. I am doing a new thing ! and you will not be able to conform it to your religion, to your conformity of man's way to "have Church", or to man's "order". For once again, I will shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. And I will shake all nations, and they will come to the 'Desire of All Nations', and 'I will fill this temple with glory,' says the Lord. 'The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine,' says the Lord of Hosts. 'The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,' says the Lord of Hosts. 'And in this place I will give PEACE,' says the Lord of Hosts. (Haggai 2:6-9) 3
    • True religion will again be established in My church and the lampstands who do not conform to MY WILL, will be extinguished. I am coming like a mighty rushing wind and NOTHING will be able to stop what I have planned. The gates of hell will NOT prevail against My church. But the FACE (the heart attitudes of the people) of My church will change abruptly and like an altering of surgery will not be recognizable in it's old form. What I do will be so shocking to some that they will attempt to box it in and control it, but they will find themselves fighting with ME. Their attempts will be strongly opposed. Keep your eyes on ME My Beloved ! I AM the Author and Finisher of your faith ! I AM the King of Kings and I WILL have no other gods before ME. I am not coming as the meek and gentle shepherd. I AM coming as a jealous Bridegroom and I will destroy the strongholds of the enemy over whole congregations over whole cities, and nations. My glory will INCREASE and be of great offense to many. The Spirit of Might will empower the children and youth and all who are open to MY WAYS to go forth in the POWER of Elijah to tear down the altars to Baal in this land and to destroy the kingdom of darkness, all over the world. Worship ME in the beauty of holiness ! Worship ME in spirit and in truth ! Worship ME with abandonment ! Glory in what I am about to do ! Rejoice, for the glory of the Lord is rising upon you, and life as you have grown accustomed to will abruptly change and NEVER be the same again. "Do you want a revolution?" {the Kirk Franklin song is resounding in my mind as I write this.} It will be a revolution of MY LOVE and GRACE ! LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I HAVE LOVED YOU and been patient with you ! As I have treated you treat others. In this you will be blessed ! GREAT HEALINGS AND MIRACLES ARE AT THE DOORSTEP. Open the doors of your heart and let the King of Glory come in ! Who is this king of Glory ? The Lord Strong, and Mighty in Battle ! The Son of Righteousness is rising with healing in His wings ! Be found in the shelter of His wings ! For He is your everything. The Best is Yet to Come Word through Priscilla Van Sutphin 5-3-01 2:00 am I have come to set my fire upon the dry dead bones........ I am going to raise up my army that they would conquer and take the lands that have laid barren and dry that have had death reigning over them for so long. The soil has been cracked and dry, parched and immovable. But I will cause the earth to cough up salvation. I will call to the four winds and they will blow on my gardens and RAIN will come even in the driest and most arid lands I will pour forth My Spirit. An awakening of unprecedented proportions will shake the Arab world, and other areas of long sustained death. Astounding miracles will take place and thousands at a time 4
    • will lay down their lives for the King of Kings. No longer will death rule and reign over My own. I will shake the heavens and the earth and I will lead all nations to the "Desire Of all Nations" and they will be My people and I will be their Lord and Master. None will need to be taught of another for My Holy Spirit will teach all things to men. NO MAN will be able to take the credit for what I ALONE will do. Nation upon nation will be in the Valley of Decision........ Many have longed to see this day when My Son will come and ride over the earth with His armies. No other name will evoke such terror. I will restore the fear of the Lord in the church and in the earth, that every knee will bow and every tongue confess that JESUS CHRIST is LORD ! Know that all things will become new. Those that have laid down their lives and suffered for the sake of what I will do in the earth have not suffered in vain. They have suffered WITH ME. I will use the base and unlikely ones to speak truth among the nations. I will now lift up the humble and make them to sit before kings and princes. I will not relent till my name is made a praise in the earth and people will KNOW that I ALONE AM GOD ! Sons of Esau, and sons of Jacob will sit down together in harmony sharing the Bread of LIFE ! When My judgments are in the earth the people will learn knowledge. The people will turn to understanding, and wisdom will replace arrogance. Humility will replace pride. Love will replace fear. And the earth will know that there is a God Who loves them and loves His people; His creation. Men of great wealth will succumb in a day. Men of great influence over nations will be in the same valley with men who are homeless on the streets. And I will take unto My banqueting table the lowly and humble ones. All that is prideful and arrogant will be laid low and brought to nothing before the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Arise and THRESH Daughter of Zion, for low the days have come that you have dreamed about, and surely MY HAND is upon you to bring My will to fruition. Seek Me while I can be found, for the days approach quickly, where no man can endure without knowing Me. Perilous times have come. Watch and stay close to Your King, for you are My Bride and I am jealous over you . I will defend you!!!! I will lay waste the mountains of perversion and pride, murder and suicide in the land. I will have my way before the coming day of wrath. Every mountain will be laid low, every valley exalted. The deer will leap for joy the mountains will cry out. The lame will leap like a deer the blind will see and all the brokenhearted will know they are loved. Reach out with My love ! Reach out to the lowly ones. Reach out beyond yourselves and see what I will do! Come on an adventure with Me, and see how much I will do for my beloved. Open your arms to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I AM the Lord of Hosts and I command the armies of God. They are arrayed in battle dress and are waiting the orders. The day is fast approaching. Worship Me in Spirit and in truth ! Fill your cups with new wine...drink of My Spirit. Fill your lamps. Come to Me. And nothing will be withheld, just come. Time with ME is well spent and never wasted.. I AM whistling for your sons and daughters. THEY WILL KNOW ME ! THEY will be 5
    • established in MY LOVE and GRACE! Fear not oh daughter of Zion I will not abandon them ! They are precious to me. I will expose the liar and thief. I will shake them free from the rebellion and witchcraft. Is anything too hard for ME ? Do NOT be moved from Your bastion of FAITH ! Speak My WORD and watch it come to fruition ! The best is yet to come ! Priscilla The Clandestine Generation Priscilla Van Sutphin 10-13-01 www.upstreamca.org I heard this word as I was waking : Clandestine Clandestine means: marked by, held in, or conducted with secrecy or concealment; not openly avowed or generally known: given to wary concealment. The example given in Websters is ( a ~ love affair ) ( to elude the vigilance of church and state, a number of Tolstoy's pamphlets were written by a ~ press ) God has had a clandestine love affair with many of His people.They may be outcasts by some in the church and without but to HIM, they are loved, predestined to glory. Then I heard " Have you ever wondered how a whole nation could be so easily conquered ? Lulled by sin and thoughts of self, she slumbers and now reels from events of the day. Were it not for my children's prayers, she would be overcome in a moment by tragedy after tragedy. And though it seems so, you haven't seen anything yet. Soon the bells will ring out. Soon I will raise up my dread champions. In that day we will see eye to eye. Our hearts will be made as one. For when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Lord will raise up a standard against him. I will put it in the hearts of My warriors to stand up and be counted. The Bravehearts, the Joan of Arc's, the leaders will emerge from their caves of training with a fervor like you have never seen in this age. They will have forsaken care of what anyone thinks of them. They will only care what I think of them. They are the John-the-Baptists of this age and they will go forth into the lands and bring down the Herods who have murdered, plundered and oppressed my children. Greed will have 6
    • nothing in them. They will care not for the things of this world just as John the Baptist. In that day, which is at hand, I will make them My jewels in My crown. They will be transformed by My GLORY. And nothing will stop them. Like David of old, they will be men and women after My own heart. They will turn the barren wastelands into fields of beauty. But to those who resist MY message, they will be a holy terror. They will lay waste the enemy beneath their feet. For many of them, the road has been rough and dry, filled with rejection and but as I come to them, they will be transformed by My glory, and nothing will stop me from delivering them from the hands of their enemies. I will release in them My own essence. They will KNOW how much I love them and they will be transformed to reflect My glory. Arise and shine, for your Light has come, and the Glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people. But the Lord will arise over you, and His Glory will be SEEN upon you. Do you comprehend ? Do you see ? Do you have a glimmer of what I have in store for you ? The ark was a sign of My covering, but you will have My covering in a way no generation has. For the enemy has come to earth to pour out his wrath to seek out those who are true to Me. Pray for your loved ones and watch what I will do. Pray for each other. LOVE one another as I have loved you ! You have not, because you ask not! Your sons will come. I will whistle for them ! I will bring them even from afar and they will come home to rest in My arms of love. I will not forsake your children. I will not forget your prayers for them. I will do a new thing, a mighty thing, a thing you have not dreamed of. They will be delivered of rebellion and rejection, perversion and wickedness and I will use them in a mighty way to bring down the pride of those who are mighty in their own eyes. I have raised this generation to have no respect for the things of this world, that I may use them to bring down the idols in the land. And though they seem undelivered 7
    • themselves. In one touch from ME they will be transformed by My glory and made a hissing to the world. If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation. If you think John the Baptist was strange, that is nothing compared to what I will make them. They are the offscouring of the earth. But I will make them My precious JEWELS. See to your own house for I come quickly and my heart is burning with desire for My loved ones. I will consume all that cannot withstand the test. I will lay waste the enemy of your soul. Can you do this without ME ? Can you do anything without ME ? I will blow on you with My hot wind and you will never be the same again. Humble yourselves before Me that I may not have to humble you ! Search your hearts for the time is at hand. Come away with Me My love. Come away for lo the Bridegroom cometh and the Bride must make herself ready. The Holy Spirit is searching for those who want to be made ready.” Awakening is Coming ! Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org 10-30-01 Mighty, Mighty is Your name ! Mighty is the Holy One of Israel. Awesome is Your power. Awesome is Your love for us who are made in Your image! Perfect are all Your ways. Is there another like You who fills the earth with glory? Who is like YOU ? None is like You Oh Lord ! The earth is filled with Your Glory - Made with a whisper of Your breath Wisdom comes only from You. All our own ways are foolishness. What can we give you but our praise ? Dying to all of our ways ! You desire mercy like You give always. The whole earth is filled with Your Glory As the above came, I began to hear His voice say... “Oh the time for the revealing of the sons of God is come - get ready My people. Get ready.for the best wine is saved for last. Here you are, preparing yourselves before all who have gone in the past. Necessity is the mother of invention man has said. Out of My necessity for love, I created a bride through relationship with You. My bride is making herself ready. By My grace and power she will be made perfect ! Father knows best how to fashion a bride for Me, and when to prepare the banquet. 8
    • I have submitted to His will and the rumblings and groanings have increased in the earth. Evil is waxing stronger. but I have said that as it waxes stronger so will My light in you for you are My desire. You are My beloved and I am yours. Make way ! Make way ! Make way a highway in the desert ! The highway of holiness, for I am preparing My robes, I have stood up from My throne.and am preparing Myself . I have put on My armor. I have gathered My swordsmen. I am coming to lay waste the enemy of your souls, that My church, My remnant church will be purged and strengthened by My glory. I will sweep into My church and it will be transformed in a display of My glory. Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, what I will suddenly do in this hour. Your time of trial and temptation has come, but My glory will transform you into a new man or woman. A little child shall lead you. Listen ! LISTEN ! LISTEN for the still small voice ! Do not be distracted from fellowship with ME. I will not do things as they have always been done Pray and I will show you what to do. Do not rely on the old ways. I am doing a NEW THING in the earth ! LISTEN to ME ! Great and mighty things will I do - things you have not seen before ! ESCALATION as never before for the bloodthirsty have increased in the earth and the death of martyrs cries out, and will cry out more. The whole earth shakes and trembles. Look not to the right or left, but take the narrow road. Keep your eyes on Me. For My love for you will never fade. It will never be taken away. You My Bride will know what Noah and Enoch felt. My voice for you shall be mild and soft. My voice to those who refuse Me will be terrifying. I will speak to you through the children, through the youth, through the unlikely, through the unwanted, through the disdained and weak. Now I will lift up the humble, the weak, the orphaned, the prodigals, and I will make the lame a strong nation. They will trample down the enemy. They will overthrow governments. They will call for social justice. They will trumpet My truth, and the church and the world will fear, for all I do through them. Tonight as the wicked start to do their bloody deeds, will I take vengeance on the enemy of your souls I will invade their encampments ! I will trample down their high places of murder and mayhem. Those who have the audacity to mix witchcraft with worship of Me will come under swift judgment. Do not be dismayed My children for anyone can repent and be saved. I always give plenty of chances to the hurting. But I will no longer allow the wicked to stand in My pulpits pretending to love Me, yet leading their 9
    • sheep in opposite directions to My will. Judgment begins in the House of the Lord ! I will bring down the high places in My church. I will destroy the destroyer in My house ! Healing will break forth like a flood upon the land. Pray for your loved ones. Go into the hospitals. Go into the homes. INVADE the land with My love ! DEMONSTRATE my gospel - and I WILL loose My kingdom ! Dance in the streets, and be unashamed of your love for ME, for I am not ashamed of you ! I died for you My Beloved. Exalt My name, and I will lift you up! Ask and it shall be given to you ! Seek and you will find ! Knock and the door will be opened. This is the day of the Lord's favor. Be glad and rejoice in it ! I will bring unto you the lost, the unloved, the sick, the infirm, the brokenhearted, the insane, and you will take time for them, and pray, and love them to health. Some of whom will come will be repulsive to you, but do not judge as the world judges ! Witches will come transvestites and homosexuals will come. You must rely on Me for all you do for some who come will be distractions - will not be willing to surrender. The enemy will continue to sow tares. Discern and disregard the lies of the enemy and walk in TRUTH. Come to ME, for I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life ! And I will by no means cast you out. You will become radiant ! My fire will be seen upon you ! People will marvel at you. They will not be able at first to comprehend all that they see and are drawn to, but I will lead them into green pastures and beside the still waters, and I will restore their souls, if they will only call upon ME. Emmanuel is with you ! You walk in the presence of the Almighty. RISE UP! GO FORTH! AND KNOW THAT THE GREAT I AM IS WALKING BESIDE YOU! Give and it will be given to you, poured out and overflowing! Do not go by your opinions. Seek MY OPINIONS! A tsunami is coming of MY LOVE and POWER! And with it will then come the LOST like a flood ! It is never My will to crush underfoot the son of man. It is only when he seeks to go his own way and rebels against My love and kindness that I must bring situations that will conform his will to Mine. Because I alone am God, and I alone know what is best for each person's life. I know every little detail of your life. I know your intimate thoughts. I know your rationalizations. I know the love in your heart for Me. I know your groanings and hurt, your joys and passions. I know every hair on Your head so 10
    • nothing you do surprises ME ! I love you and will love you forever ! Commune with Me and you will know peace in the midst of the storm. Come away with Me my beloved !” Years ago when the Lord spoke to me about revival that was coming, He said some things that are important to share for those that have not heard them. 1) We would eventually have to meet in homes and be hidden due to persecution. That is why there has been such a move for cell groups and home churches. 2) When it came, He would come like a mighty rushing wind and people would literally flood into the churches that the church would even be filled with fear for not knowing how to handle it all. 3) Over half the worlds population is 18 and under so many will be the young adults and youth some areas will have a church mostly full of youth and children the elder will be there to disciple them but they would be far outweighed by the younger in numbers. 4)Apostolic power is coming - even our shadows like Peter passing by someone will bring conviction and healing. 5) Apostolic power comes with apostolic holiness. The apostles made mistakes. They were NOT perfect men but their hearts were totally given to God, totally His. 6) Some will be slain at his coming like Ananias and Sapphira....this will break our hearts when we see it for not praying more for them. 7)There will much street ministry; youth going out to malls, neighborhoods, putting on dramas in the streets - dance and Art will be revived. 8) People will be healed just in the worship. People will get up out of wheelchairs. dramatic miracles of healing will take place. There will be an amazing anointing on the worshippers. 9) People will be dramatically delivered from insanity and serious torments. 10) There will be raising of the dead it will be commonplace...along with creative miracles. 11) There will be authority over the weather and environmental things - like pollution over cities, or radiation affects. We must believe for greater things! There will be translations some people will escape persecution by disappearing and being sent somewhere else to preach the gospel. 12) It will come at a high cost in martyrdom. Don't expect that we will have it easier than our brothers and sisters in China or India, Rwanda or the Sudan. Brothers and sisters will be falsely accused. but God will also do, many miraculous things in all of this Translations Priscilla Van Sutphin 01-05-02 "The time is at hand for greater faith. Man is not capable in understanding all the 11
    • ways of God. But there is a need for FAITH to be released in My people for the greater things that are coming. { My thoughts went to picturing the TBN movie, where the two witnesses are depicted with being translated from one place to another } I AM not a God of limitation, but a God of provision..Jehovah Jireh. Even the lack that will come on the earth will not stop My plans for people. There are people who will experience great translations. And when they are done with what I want them to do in one place, they will be taken another place. You may see this as an out of reach phenomonen. But it will not be out of reach. If I tell you something, I will fulfill My word to you. You must believe that what I say is true, and that I am not limited by time or space or your ability to provide anything. You think Peter's shadow falling on people and healing them is an amazing wonder. But I have told you that GREATER things are coming. And there is much unbelief in My church for even the above. The reason for this is that the American church has become used to what THEY CAN DO, not what I can do. Unbelief is sin. And it is prevalent in My church today. I said, "When I return will I find faith on earth ? " I already knew the answer to that. I didn't ask because I didn't know. The unbelief is described in Timothy...Men will be lovers of themselves instead of lovers of GOD. They will believe in THEIR abilities over My ability. I will confound the wisdom of the wise in their own OPINION. Days of GLORY lie ahead. Do not fear the sabotage and persecution of My church. Miracles are coming....Miracles, upon miracle. If I send you to a foreign place and there is no food to feed people with, can you believe for a miracle? Or do you think YOU have to provide." { Again my thoughts went I think a year ago an article someone sent me about starvation in a part of Ethiopia. My brother explored Ethiopia a few times when he was in the army, and stationed in Eritrea. So I have a bit of heart for African nations, and I remembered praying, God you are not limited by their poverty. Bring food to them. You're God...You love Your children. You don't want them to die. Honest to God, 2 weeks later another person sent me an article from the Ethiopian newspaper about a town that got showered with fish...it just fell from the skies. It was as if a giant angel went fishing with an invisible net and then dumped the contents on a town in Ethiopia...what a miracle ! I know there were surely others praying, and God answered.} You know God is not limited by our thoughts of how He can work. Often what we think, is unbelief. God is BIG, BIG, BIG . He can do anything. After all He made the heavens and the earth. We were formed from the dust of the earth. Peter said, if we don't speak, these rocks would cry out. Because GOD IS GREAT ! He is the ONLY GOD. WE ARE NOT GOD. WE CAN DO NOTHING , NOTHING, NOTHING without HIM. He is not afraid of the men who are plotting vain things___the Kings of the earth. 12
    • He has HIS OWN PLANS and nothing they can do can stop HIS WORK. HE IS COMMITTED TO HIS OWN PLANS. NOT ONE JOT OR TITTLE WILL CHANGE what is written in Revelation. It will be done. Martyrdom is increasing, but HIS WAYS are higher than our ways. We only have to BELIEVE. The Greek word , remember means to put the WHOLE OF OUR TRUST IN HIM. People think they have to provide yet ELIJAH WAS FED BY ANGELS, AND RAVENS. Our God is too small people. We must BELIEVE for the greater things if we want to walk in them ! Our thinking has to change. We see nuclear fallout as one of the worse possibilities, and are afraid, but God the Creator, Elohim, could change the nuclear fallout to nothing. He could blow it all away and make it disappear. HE IS NOT LIMITED. He could shield His own from it. In fact in a vision by A.C. Valdez in 1929 I think it was ( It's on the Bill Somers site archives, www.etpv.org ) There is a vision of exactly that! He was in a vision and standing on the Berkeley hills, when he saw San Francisco hit by a nuclear bomb and God took him to different levels of the fallout and in the last place, far away and in a safe valley, lush and green were Christians who had been translated, unharmed ! Yet we find ourselves sometimes worrying, scurrying, fretful, about events to come. Fear not ! Fear Him Who is able to cast your soul in hell ! Him shall you hallow, Him shall you fear ! He Who is MIGHTY, will do Mighty things in the days ahead . Lay all fear to rest. BASK IN HIS ARMS OF LOVE RIGHT NOW. ASK FOR HIS LOVE THAT CASTS DOWN ALL FEAR TO SURROUND YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES. God will rend the heavens and come down for those who love Him with abandonment. Raindrops Are Falling through Priscilla Van Sutphin 29 January 2002 0205 hrs www.upstreamca.org I heard the song, " Raindrops keep falling on my head " Then the Lord spoke: “The rains are beginning here, and a sign of what I am doing in the Spirit realm. They will continue till the water becomes a flood on the dry ground. The waves of My glory will not be stopped until every soul has had the chance to make a choice in all the nations of the world. The rains will overtake many in such extraordinary ways, that people will be shocked and astounded ! Unbelief will be shaken out of My church and the church will take on the function of a living breathing organism like it was in the beginning. Deep will call unto deep at the sound of the waterfalls. Souls will come into alignment for My purposes and plans. Many who have been sleeping will awaken and be changed by My glory, and the world will reel and quake at the thunder of My judgments in the earth. Be not afraid, My children, for I have overcome the world. The thoughts and intentions of many hearts 13
    • is to do evil only. Therefore there will be judgments for it is judgment that provokes men to take stock in what they believe, and to shake them from their pretense and delusions. Come unto ME, my sons and daughters. Come away with Me in the secret place for I have things to share with you - things that I have been longing to tell you. Come away from the busyness for events will soon catapult you into busyness of MY making and you must have My heart You must have MY character to be able to function in the times ahead and to not faint. Perilous times are upon you, and if you don't get filled up you will be like the foolish virgins who were left without oil for their lamps. Come and drink of the Living Waters of Life. I will refresh you. I will extricate the enemy from your souls if you will come and be quiet before ME; for in quietness and rest you will be restored ! A flood of souls will soon begin to be ushered into the Kingdom so prepare your hearts by spending time with ME. Do not forget the first things Do not run away from My voice. Be willing to get quiet and do not move until you have heard My voice. Sit patiently, and I will come to you and we will have sweet fellowship together. Cease from striving and busyness. Abandon the ways of the world that you can inherit the greater things. Just as the dew refreshes the grass and plants It comes down like a mist, and brings life-giving moisture to the plants in My garden, yet many of my plants are withered and dry and bent over and SO thirsty, that even the dew is not enough they need the heavy rains, that fill the dry land and break up the clods of dirt and wash away the contamination and just as the floods from the river replenish the minerals in the plants on the land. This flood of many waters from above will replenish what has been dry and stagnant, if you will let it. Let ME be pre eminent. The Holy Spirit and I are ONE. He moves where I tell Him to move. Honor Him as you honor ME for we are ONE. Let Him tell you what is next to do. Let HIM be in charge of your day, your relationships, your work, your life. Let HIM order your day. I said that unless I left, He would not come. He is the Comforter, the TEACHER, so let HIM IN. LET HIM be glorified in your midst, and I will be glorified, for we are ONE. Dancing with Diamonds Thru Priscilla Van Sutphin 2-19-02 I heard this phrase " Dancing with Diamonds" and the Lord said: " I had a plan. My plans are above the plans of men or demons. I am Elohim after all, Creator God of the universe. Have you not known, have you not seen ? He who sits above the heavens laughs at the derision of His enemies. The enemy has always been deluded in thinking he has the upper hand but I AM that I AM, and I will complete the work I have begun in you. I will fulfill my call to the nations and in this nation. Have you ever seen the way a diamond comes out of the ground ? Enveloped in the carbon substance of it's growth, black and useless, yet it is formed into something 14
    • quite beautiful and impenetrable. And that is how I am making my diamonds in the rough. Those I have made into My image and who have surrendered to My ways, are being cut and polished and formed into a thing of beauty to display My glory through. When you shine light through a diamond it scatters and you see light all over the room it is in. If there are malformations, elements in the diamond that dull it's appearance, the light will not scatter as is intended to project. Therefore, I am removing all the impurities in My people, that they may glow with the GLORY I want to pour into them. Come to my side virgin daughter of Zion and I will dance with you ! I want to sweep you off your feet, that you will be enthralled with the Lover of your soul, that you will know HOW MUCH I love you ! Come to ME ! Let me have this dance, that will put the finishing touches on My diamonds of glory ! You are coming forth and will shine My Light to the whole world around you wherever you go, if you will but come to ME. I am a jealous Lover and I will have no other gods before Me. I did not call you to idolize your ministry, your family, money, things of the world or anything but ME. All that can be shaken WILL be shaken so come NOW, that you might be polished The diamond is first plucked from the charcoal and rock and then cut and faceted but then it is polished and I have a shine to put on My diamonds too. Come away with Me, that you may fly higher and higher so that you will learn to only be carried by the wind of My Spirit that none of your ways are mixed with My ways. Polishing just takes a little rubbing , cutting is painful, but rubbing is just a bit of irritation and a final gentle touch to bring the process to an end . Then I saw a vision of jeweler spraying something on a diamond he was polishing and rubbing it, and it shone much brighter. And this reminded me of Esther, how she was sprayed with perfumes in the second half of her preparation, representing the aroma of the Lord. Then I again heard the Lord say: I will cause you to distinguish between the good and the bad and the ugly as you receive this polishing, and as the light shines through you it will penetrate into the hearts of others. And this will allow you to see into their souls and see the anguish and turmoil of their hearts. And I will show you great and mighty things and the church and world will be dismayed, at the mighty army I have formed in darkness, just like the diamond.. It comes out of darkness and then will be used to shine into the whole world to display My love and power. Your president said there is an "axis of evil" and he said well. But his idea of how to fight it , and Mine are different. He is using war and invasion forces. I too have My invasion forces but they will go under a covering of surprise and hiddenness (darkness) yet shine MY Light to the nations and compel the masses to come to Me. He has his smart missiles and I have Mine, that will deliver a death blow to the powers of darkness that have held people in their grip for centuries and ages, even 15
    • from the beginnings of time. So NOW I will muster My army, and they WILL come forth, and the means to send them forth will be generated, that they can do what I have called them to do for the sake of MY NAME ! They will be great LOVERS of Me, not fighting against My will, but yielded vessels of My glory. They will not break ranks as they plunge against defenses. They will walk in UNITY of purpose ; MY PURPOSE. There will be no lack to those who are given to My purposes. And I will make a display of the enemy in the midst of persecution and every other evil that the enemy brings. I will use My army to lay waste the enemy of your souls. NOTHING will ever be the same. A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns. The glory of the Lord will be seen upon them. 11-23-02 When I come it will be very violent ! My voice is in the lightening. My Voice is in the winds. My voice is in the roaring of the oceans ! My voice is in the thundering and the shaking of the earth. For once again I will shake the heavens and the earth and MY HOUSE will be filled with MY GLORY. NOTHING will be the same. Are you ready? Are you ready for MY GLORY ? Come My children and let us reason together. Come and cast your heavy weights on My shoulders, for My burden is easy, My yoke is light. I LOVE YOU with an everlasting LOVE...but YOU MUST COME ! Come to Me. HIDE yourself in ME...that you may really, really, really know ME. That you may not only know My heart, but be filled to the full with MY goodness, My love and mercy, that you will have what you need to minister to the LOST and hurting world. Days of Glory On the Way Priscilla Van Sutphin 12/21/02 12:22 am www.upstreamca.org " If you think the prince of England is something else, wait till the Prince of Peace arrives at your doorstep. I am coming, and I am coming to wipe away all the entrapments of the enemy. He will be dismayed when I do my glorious new thing in your midst. You are about to partake of a most bounteous meal. There is no turkey, no potatoes, no desserts, but there is an amazing array and display of My power and My glory, so that you will be well suited for the days ahead. Are you ready to be a brave-heart ? I know it seems far from your strength now to do so, for some of you, but when I get done preparing My bride, she will endure all things for the sake of the Kingdom of God, and she will do many wonderful and amazing exploits in My name. There will be tremblings, and many changes in the days ahead, but know that the Prince of Peace stands with you in this battle of all battles. Many angels are on guard for this time, and many more loosed from the heavenlies to aide My people in this most glorious time. Heavenly visitations will be common. 16
    • Children will know Me, not because of stories their parents told them, but because of encounters with Me. Youth will no longer be doubting and skeptical when they see Me in great displays of power and get shown the realm of the spirit world. Even the things in the world have prepared them more than you recognize, as the forms they have seen in movies will come and take on a different "aspect" than they have seen before. They will know that the spiritual battle in the heavenlies is REAL and not imagined, is not "magic". I have My heavenly "barkers", just like on earth, and they will be sounding forth warnings, and judgments in the earth. They will enter into your midst and you will know that the Lord Your God is with you and you will tremble before Me. You will no longer take for granted the grace you have received. You will know the true fear of the Lord. And you will partake of heavenly gifts that will turn the world upside down. For never before has there been such an army. All of heaven is watching and waiting and more than ever will be participating in the events the ages have longed to see. I am stirred in My Spirit and My heart is longing to be one with yours, My beauty, My Bride ! I am coming to give you a new heart, My heart so that you will be able to live how you have longed to live and do all the things I have promised you will do. Do not think you can stop this. Do not think the enemy can stop this. NOTHING can stop My love from being poured out. My glory will rain down but how it affects you depends on the condition of your heart. So keep it soft. Keep it free from bitterness and hatefulness, and pride.. For I AM the ALL-CONSUMING FIRE and I WILL SEE THAT YOU ARE MADE INTO MY IMAGE that you can be and do all I want you to be and do. Scepticism, doubt and unbelief are at an all time high but I know the ones who are ready to see change, who are ready to believe. There are many who have wanted to believe, but have been denied access. There are many who have wanted to taste something real of ME and they will not be denied. I have marked those who are My own, and those who are to be My own. Seek MY face for all the answers you need. I AM the Desire of all Nations and every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess that I AM LORD. I will not leave anyone out whom you have prayed for, so keep your loved ones close to your heart in prayer. Get ready to ride the waves of My glory. They are coming like the waves of the sea. I will sanctify My house with My glory and I will have a pure and spotless Bride. I heard that Don Potter song: Come, Come, Come. A Time of Signs and Wonders Thru Priscilla Van Sutphin 1-09-03 12:19 am www.upstreamca.org goinupstream@gmail.com I am severing and I am binding up. I am separating and I am uniting different factions, different streams, different peoples. I am preparing you for MY plans to be 17
    • carried out in the days ahead. Do not be surprised by changes. I am in the winds that are blowing. I am coming like a mighty rushing wind and nothing will stand in the way of what I want to do. The winds of the enemy are also blowing and trying to scatter, but My winds will be prevailing winds. They will supercede all he tries to do to limit what I want for My people. Do not be dismayed. Soon you will be arrayed with My glory and My Power many signs and wonders will be normal for these times to come. Meanwhile I am burning and blowing all the chaff away that you may receive all I have to pour into you without burning up. My fires will invade the church like a river of molten gold lava flowing through so that all is transformed by it. Just as lava sweeps away everything in it’s path, so will My river of gold glory burn up all that stands in it’s way ! As the molten gold lava sweeps away all the chaff, all the resistance of the enemy in your souls, then you will be able to receive the glory I want to pour into you without it destroying you. So submit yourselves to the firey river . That all that cannot withstand the test is burned up in it. Do not be afraid of My fire the intensity will increase severely but so will the supernatural within My loved ones. Miracles upon miracles will erupt and bring in the lost. When you go into the marketplace , they will be attracted to you without knowing why, and as you stretch out your hands to bless them and pray for them signs and wonders will draw even more to behold MY glory. Be steadfast in seeking MY face. Depend on ME for what to say. Be steadfast in speaking the Word over your situations, over your families, over your churches, over your communities, for I am giving you greater authority as all this comes about, and you will do the greater things throughout the earth, My signs and wonders will increase till the glory of the Lord covers the whole earth, and until the time of MY appearing. The glory will increase even as the darkness does so do not be dismayed by what you see in the world only BELIEVE ! I AM WITH YOU ! My love will increase till you cannot hold it in. You will be shaking hands, and you will feel the pain of others. You will meet someone in passing and see what is in their life and I will give you directions how to use the gifts and glory if you will DEPEND on ME. All of this is to expand MY kingdom and to bring in the harvest of all harvests. Do not underestimate the unsophisticated masses of people I will bring to you. Do not underestimate the drug addicts and alcoholics, the prostitutes and gang members. For with them I will add to MY army and many will be evangelists, apostles and prophets, pastors and teachers in the days ahead. Prophecy will flow forth like a river of new wine and great will be the testimonies of what I do in your midst. You must not love your life for if you willingly give it up, you will receive a greater reward. Leave the earthly things behind in your heart. For whatever you hold on to controls you. BE WILLING to give up everything for the sake of the kingdom for perilous are the times ahead and you will have to share like the early apostles with the poor. The storms of war are increasing in the earth, but MY STORMS of GLORY will break through to apprehend the lost as never before. Believe for great miracles, and great miracles you will get. Remember the widow who fed Elijah. Remember the ravens who fed him. Do not worry about your life. REST and TRUST in Me. 18
    • GLORY AND MAJESTY Priscilla Van Sutphin 1-18-03 11:28 pm www.upstreamca.org I have a plan. It’s a good plan. It is a plan I worked out from the beginning of time. I have not abandoned MY plan. I have worked all things, and am working all things to it’s fulfillment. I have not called you to abandon you or leave you behind. I AM that I AM. I AM going to catapult you into your destinies In the mean time I am shining My glory on you to expose what is hidden in your hearts that you did not know was there. I’m not doing it to condemn you. I am not angry with you or surprised when you can’t do what you want to do. I am all-knowing and a Wise Father who gives good gifts to His children. I don’t give them to you because you are perfect. I do not give them to you because you have achieved anything, or performed well. I give them to you because I LOVE YOU and so you can show that love to others who don’t know it. I am bringing you forth as gold AS GOLD OF OPHIR. RELIGION will be gutted from MY church. I AM turning over the tables of the money changers. I AM establishing MY kingdom, whether anyone wants to or not. I WILL have a spotless BRIDE who loves me with passion and I will pour out MY unfailing LOVE upon My Bride and she will be robed in majesty like a queen. She will be soaked with perfumes like Esther a representation of My character. She will move mountains in MY NAME. Authorities and dominions will bow to My name and I will give you the treasures in darkness. I have many jewels strewn throughout the nations. Some of them are still set in hard rock. They have not even been plucked from the dark caves. But I will pluck them up, pull them out, cut them into perfect precious stones and polish them faster than you can imagine. They will grow by leaps and bounds nourished in My love and grace, My mercy and kindness. Do not think to try to stop the shining of My precious jewels as they shine with My light moving through them. There will be healing of nations and the earth will be covered with the knowledge of My love and majesty as the waters cover the seas, I will spread forth My MIGHTY HAND and RESTORATION will come like a flood. When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Lord will raise up a standard against him. YOU are that standard. I will raise. I WILL give you VOICE. I WILL give you My power and authority with which to trample the works of the enemy in the lives of those I love. It’s time My children IT’S TIME TO SHINE ! COME to ME, that I may pour in all you need. Do not hesitate. There is no defense against forgiveness and humility that the enemy can muster. LOVE ONE ANOTHER as I HAVE LOVED YOU ! Those who lead others to righteousness will shine like the stars in the heavens. Devoted Ones Thru Priscilla Van Sutphin 1-24-03 4:44 am www.upstreamca.org 19
    • The devoted ones sing to Me a song of deliverance a song of praise, a song of love. They are never far from Me. They cling to me and I lift them up, that they may continue in the sweet communion they have with Me. I am a God of LOVE and kindness, not hate and destruction. I AM wanting to pour out My LOVE. I am wanting to restore MY CHURCH. I AM wanting to restore love in the hearts of the LOST. When My love is poured out, I will draw in the lost with a giant dragnet and many will come to the knowledge of My glory. Get your halls ready. Get your hearts ready to receive a great "catch". When fishermen receive a great catch, they need haulers, they need cleaners. They need extra people to help in the process of taking them in. You will need every member to be prepared to do their part. All parts of the body are necessary, even the weaker ones so do not delay the time is close. GET READY to receive a great "catch" and know that I will pour into you all you need if you will but come to Me for directions. It is so much it will overwhelm many unless you are prepared MY WORD is LIFE. Come and eat ! My Body was bruised and beaten so that the world might be healed I am more concerned with healing and deliverance, than man's order. I want MY ORDER. People are more important than programs and man made regulations are you willing to bend to My will ? Are you willing to depend on ME for all the answers ? Take and learn from Me.for I am meek and lowly of heart Arrogance and pride will be crushed by the weight of My glory. Lay it all down so that you will not be crushed by the weight of My glory. Lay down your rights and submit to the King of Glory in your midst. Who is the head of the church ? Who laid down His life that you may have life ? Who is the Way, the Truth , and the Life ? Mercy, Justice and Faith are the greater parts of the law. Come to Me and receive wisdom. Come to Me and receive the love you need to love them with. Come to Me to receive the ways and the means to disciple them. Come to Me to receive the faith you need. Come to ME and teach them to come to ME, not to you.and they will also have LIFE. They will depend on you at first , but always you should be leading them to the Source. I AM that Source. I AM the Source of all you need. If they learn this they will have all they need. If you teach them union and communion with Me, then they will forever be IN ME. Teach them to WORSHIP. "Let My people go, that they might worship Me" I said to pharaoh through Moses. I am looking for those to worship ME in Spirit and in truth. Teach them how much I love them, that they will not believe a lie and they will be invulnerable 20
    • to the wiles of the evil one. True religion will draw them in. True Religion is following ME. Christian means follower of Christ - to teach My ways, my walk, my thinking, not man's opinions. Teach them to lose themselves in ME and they will become a mighty army with you. I am loosing a Spirit of WORSHIP that will call out to the lost and draw them into My love. As I release this worship - take it outside the walls of the church - be unashamed of the gospel of peace and I will be unashamed of you and bless you beyond your imagination. Show them love with abandonment that they might be touched by My glory. I will make the way and you will see the ushering in of a new era. LISTEN for the small still voice and obey and I will bless you mightily. Hospitals, parks, shopping centers, and many public places will be so affected, that cities will be transformed if you will follow My lead. Wait for My instruction and I will not disappoint you. Dynamic Trust Priscilla Van Sutphin 2-12-03 2:24 am www.upstreamca.org Psalm 9:17-20 NKJ The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten. The expectation of the poor shall not perish forever. Arise, O Lord, Do not let man prevail; Let the nations be judged in Your sight. Put them in fear, O Lord that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah. Psalm 10:12, 14-18 NKJ Arise, O Lord! O GOD, lift up Your hand ! Do not forget the humble. .But You have seen, for You observe trouble and grief. To repay it by Your hand. The helpless commits himself to You; You are the helper of the fatherless. Break the arm of the wicked and the evil man; Seek out his wickedness till You find none. The Lord is King forever and ever; The nations have perished out of His land. Lord , You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare their heart, You will cause Your ear to hear. To do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed. That the man of the earth may oppress no more. "Many are worried about what to do, how to prepare how to pray. I AM your safe REFUGE. I AM your Strong Tower. I AM your ROCK of DEFENSE. I will break the back of the plans of man. I will allow only what I will. No more, no less. I keep your hearts in the palm of My hand. Do not be afraid My children, for I AM with you. I will prevail in all MY heart intends to do. The wicked will be punished for their great wickedness but you , My children, come away with ME to the secret place the place of communing with Me. for I have much to tell you. I have much to heal in you. REST in ME. Put the full of your trust in ME that I will do only what is best for you. To live is Christ, to die is gain. Paul could say this because the enemy had 21
    • nothing in him. He gave up everything to do MY will. I am asking no less of you, that all you do would be in MY will, that all you have would be dedicated to ME, for My purposes, My will. Then the enemy has nothing on you . ABSOLUTE surrender means total TRUST in ME. Trust Me with ALL of your heart, all of your soul, all your being, for I LOVE you as no other ! Will the clay say to the Potter, what are You doing ? KNOW that MY GLORY will transform you very soon, and nothing can stop MY PLANS. NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING can stop the flow of My Spirit from doing My secret intervention in your lives. So come to ME, and lay EVERYTHING down; lay down all your concerns, all your dreams, all your plans, all that you have and are, and LET ME do what I will in you, for I will NOT disappoint you. What is coming is so glorious, you will not want to miss out. Legions of angels have awaited this time. They are waiting to perform My perfect will. In the days ahead, they will be at your beck and call, to perform all I lead you to pray for, and sudden answers will come; people will be stunned into obedience. They will be OVERWHELMED as Mary was with My LOVE that leads to repentance. The FIRE of MY LOVE will burn up all that cannot withstand the test HAVE NO FEAR - DAYS OF GLORY ARE UPON YOU ! I AM IS WITH YOU. EMMANUEL. WORSHIP, WORSHIP, WORSHIP ME IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS. Come and lie down with ME in the secret place and LET me transform you with My GLORY ! SUDDENLIES, SUDDENLIES, SUDDENLIES ARE UPON YOU ! There is a Remnant Thru Priscilla Van Sutphin Feb 20th, 2003 2:40 am PST There is a remnant of My body that is called and set apart, consecrated for the greater things I am going to do in this hour. I have been preparing them in the wilderness of affliction, persecution, rejection and suffering. They have been hidden and many have been maligned, cast off, treated like so much flotsam and jetsom and yet they are so precious in My eyes, because I have seen their suffering . I have seen the way they continue to cling to Me, even when they are disappointed and not chosen. Even when they have to endure great physical pain and suffering for the sake of the church, they have continued to believe. They have continued to persevere in spite of all opposition to their coming forth as gold refined in the fire. Many have endured great seasons of pain from rejection . Many have gone through the fire of doubt and severe disappointments, have overcome the anger and trials of temptations. They have clung to the truth of My Word and clung to the skirts of My garments for the HOPE that endures forever. And I am not going to disappoint those who have suffered with Me, for those who have suffered with me will share in My GLORY. That is My Word, and I will keep it. The Day is close at hand. I will use many whom the church at large has not thought capable. And in fact that is why I will use them. For in 22
    • their weakness, I will be made strong ! They will not go in the strength of their own arm. They will know to lean on ME for all that they need. I am their Rod and their Staff, and they know that they can't do it without Me. They will not care to be recognized by those who are popular. They will not care for worldly prominence, even though many will be received in that arena when My light shines on them and through them. They will only care for pleasing ME. The knowledge of the glory of the Lord will fill the earth because I will fill them with such a fullness in ME, that they will be poured out on the masses of the great sea of peoples on the earth and True revelation of My love for My creation will pour forth from them in such a manner as to draw others like bears to honey. Even the most hard hearts will melt in the presence of the King that will be revealed in them. Look at this, a people rises like a lioness ! And like a lioness, they will devour their adversaries. They will feed many nations, & in Truth and in Justice, they will rule over their adversary, because they will have died to all that is of the flesh so that I could be revealed in them. To live is Christ, to die is gain. Phil 1:21 They have learned that to die with Christ is to be risen in Life with Him. Nothing of this world will cling to them. There will be a fullness of My presence that has not been understood in previous times, residing in them. The greater things they will do! Do you want this life ? For it has been available to those that are willing to pay the cost. Are you willing to embrace My cross ? to identify yourselves with Me in My suffering. Are you willing to lay EVERYTHING down, that you will have EVERYTHING of the inheritance I have planned for you ? Ezek 44:28 NKJV "It shall be, in regard to their inheritance, that I am their inheritance. You shall give them no possession in Israel, for I am their possession. A transfiguration is coming to those who have been willing to pay the cost, to those whose hearts have so wanted to be free, but have been unable to overcome. Do not fret. Do not lose heart ! For Your Prince of Peace is coming. And when I come. I carry with me the keys to death and hell. The last enemy to be overcome is death. If you will embrace the cross and death to self, you will soar into realms of glory that you have never imagined. Just as I was prepared by the Father for My great test and sacrifice, so You who are willing will be prepared. Come to Me now in your pain. Come to me and lie down with Me. REST in Me and let me fill you with My presence. Let ME fill you with the fullness of My love and grace. Put aside all worldly concerns. Rest in Me and eat the scroll. Live and breathe and have your being in Me. For I AM the Bread of Life. I AM the Staff of Life to all who will come. 23
    • In the quietness and REST, you will be restored and flourish like a stall-fed calf. Come and eat ! Come and LET ME HOLD YOU in My arms of LOVE and tenderness. Let Me breathe MY LIFE into you. Do nothing, but to LET ME touch you. If you are still and quiet, you will be able to hear the voice of My whispers. You will be able to see all I want to show you. For the Lord does nothing unless He shows it to His prophets first. Time will not stand still so come while the door is open to you, for I stand at the door and knock. To him who opens, I will come in and sup with you. Emerging Warriors Priscilla Van Sutphin 2-26-03 0530 hrs I have an army of warriors that are battle worn and weary. They need to learn perseverance. They need to learn how to pray, how to war with worship. They need to know how to discern when certain types of warfare are needed. They need to learn how to DEPEND ON ME and to not lean on their own understanding, or what's been taught by men, that is not of me for this hour. I'm readying my teachers and others in the five-fold ministry who will disciple them and show them the keys to true spiritual warfare. This war cannot be fought in the flesh. The Spirit of God searches over the earth for the one who will listen to the Voice of the Lord. For one who will depend on ME for how to war ! Can the clay say to the Potter, what are you doing with me ? Know this: I WILL HAVE A GENERATION WHO KNOWS HOW TO RELY ON ME ! not their own strength, not their own wisdom or understanding, but Mine. I am longing for a Bride. I am longing for one who will lean on her Beloved ; who will not lean on her own ways, her own ideas, her own strength and wisdom. I am coming like A MIGHTY RUSHING WIND and I WILL EXPLODE upon My church with My power and glory and she will be transformed by My LOVE. The Spirit will be poured out upon her in greater measure that she will listen and learn to wait on her Beloved before doing anything. In the early church, they made decisions by fasting and prayer to receive revelation. They did not walk in presumption because they had My Spirit and the fear of the Lord filled the church. Do you think I would do any less for My church who are about to confront the worst evil the world has ever seen ? My fire will increase in My church. I will have a holy and spotless Bride who will do anything her Lover asks. And I will do anything for the Bride who is in love with Me. I am longing for this day when we can be ONE. Ask for the rain in the time of the latter rain. Ask and you will receive, knock and it will be opened. I will be a hedge of fire around you , and the glory in your midst ! 24
    • Come away with Me that I may bather you in spices and perfumes, that I might prepare My Bride for the Day approaches, burning like an oven. Come and I will hide you in the secret place so that as you go forth to do My will, you will radiate My glory, speak what I have to say, and not our own opinions...that you will love one another as I have loved you, that the world may know I AM. I AM is with you. I AM here. Know that I AM working all for your perfection - I AM healing My Bride. I WILL make her whole and the world will wonder at the startling things I will do. Ask for the FAITH you need ! Ask for the LOVE you need ! Ask for the Courage you need, and I will give it to you ! I AM your Resource. Some are still looking to their own ways and means. Did I not MULTIPLY loaves of bread and fishes ? Believe and do not doubt ! Without FAITH it is impossible to please God. My Word is truth. To believe in Me you must believe My Word and walk in the light as I AM in the light. Do not act presumptuously - but act on what I tell you to do, and I WILL show forth My WONDERS ! Realms of Righteousness and Glory Scribe: Priscilla Van Sutphin 2-27-03 www.upstreamca.org I am taking you into realms of righteousness and glory. I am giving you the keys of David, that you may slay your enemies as I did. I will do all I've said I will do, yet so many doubt My ability to transform those I love into living flames of fire. Is there anything MY BLOOD has no power over ? Is there anything too great for ME to conquer ? Why is your heart filled with doubt? Is it not that you lack faith and patience to see Me perform it ? I could save the whole world with a Word. Did I not create the heavens and the earth and all that is within it ? Did I not divide the night and day ? Did I not create all that you see, and even more you have not seen ? I AM Almighty God !... The Living Word, the Alpha and Omega ! Am I limited in what I can do ? No, I am not...so why do you limit me ? Do you know all things ? Can you see all that is ahead ? I CAN. So STOP and realize that your finite minds cannot compare to that of He Who created you. I love ALL My children. I love the lost and I love My Bride. I am not a partial parent ! I am not prejudiced. I know the beginning and I know the end. I know the hairs on your head. I know the living, I know the dead. I know who is a murderer in their heart, and I know who is a thief. I know the innocent and I know the guilty. I know the revered, and I know the scorned. And I love you all. One vessel differs from another in construction and use. But I know all. And I have commanded you to LOVE one another as I've loved you....to LOVE your enemies and to be good to those who HATE you , and to PRAY for those who spitefully use you ! So now come to ME for 25
    • what you are lacking that I might pour in MY LOVE, MY PATIENCE, MY PEACE, MY GOODNESS, MY FORBEARANCE, MY JOY AND SELF CONTROL...that you may individually and corporately be made whole! From: 4/20/03 Even the littlest ones in your midst will walk in glory, so listen to them. Do not think I Make decisions with prejudice. I am Sovereign and I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy. I APPOINT. I LIFT UP. I ANOINT WHOM I WILL. I am about to do a NEW THING in your midst. Be aware that when I do you will not DARE to oppose Me. I AM THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH. I died for the church, and I live for the church, and I intercede for the church. I will decide how to run MY church. So if you are not leaning on the ROCK, NOW is the time ! I am Patient and I am Understanding. I am Forebearing and I AM MERCIFUL. THERE is NOTHING I DON"T KNOW about you. So come now, while there is still time. Enter into My rest. Depend on ME for all you do. Come and let me hold you in MY arms of LOVE. LET ME TOUCH YOU ! LET ME care FOR you. For I AM gentle and lowly of spirit and I will give you PEACE. From: 7/24/95 You won't have to work hard to bring in the Harvest, but you will need more workers than you could even imagine to clean them up and disciple them. Your halls will not be able to contain them ! There will be a mighty flood of Souls into the church and there will be a mighty outflow to the nations as well ! My army of Gideons will be healing, prophetic, evangelists; many with gifts of expository teaching. They will be unequalled in gifting, and will do great exploits for My Kingdom. They will have no fear of man when their training is finished. They will go forth like JOHN THE BAPTISTS in the Spirit of Elijah to prepare the world for My coming ! There will be thousands of them to do the work of harvesting, cleaning and discipling. GET READY NOW ! Ready the church NOW ! For the harvest is SO great, but the workers are few who are pregnant with abundance of the TRUTH of My WORD ! Prepare My lambs ! Prepare My saplings ! Heed this call to arms . Put on the full armor of God, for the enemy is also at work, and great persecution will ensue in the days to come. Train up the children in the way they should go. Worship ME in the beauty of holiness. Be holy as I AM Holy ! Worship Me in Spirit and in truth. Cast off all that restrains you from worshipping Me in freedom ! Come to Me in your homes. Sit at My feet, like Ruth sat at the feet of Boaz, waiting ! Wait on Me, like a child wits for a parent's instructions to do something. ( ie: swimming ) Step by step, lean on ME, not on your own opinion, will or understanding. For My ways are higher than your ways. Great is My love for you, My BRIDE, My own ! I will not tarry much longer. Seek Me while I may be found. Hold on to what you can hold in your heart, not in your hands ! My supper is prepared and the feast nearly ready. Prepare ye the way of the Lord ! Preach the acceptable year of the Lord ! Bind up the broken-hearted. Put on the garments of LOVE, HUMILITY, and 26
    • FORGIVENESS. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and HE WILL LIFT YOU UP ! Freely you have received. Freely give ! Care for those who are the weaker brothers and sisters. FROM: Oct 29. 2003 The fire is coming, and it will BURN, and BURN, and BURN. Do not think that you can escape the fire of My burning. I AM an All-Consuming FIRE. So HUMBLE yourselves before Me and I will lift you up and out of the mire. But if you choose to serve yourself and the enemy when I come instead of following in the narrow path. YOU will be devoured by My Glory just as Ananias and Sapphira ! My glory is a double edged sword and it will not miss it's mark ! Repent and seek My face all of you, for the days of judgment are at hand ! And no stone will be left unturned…for did I not say, Haggai 1:7-11 AMP Thus says the Lord of HOSTS: Consider your ways (your previous and present conduct) and how you have fared. 8 Go up to the hill country and bring lumber and rebuild [My] house, and I will take pleasure in it and I will be glorified, says the Lord [ by accepting it as doen for My glory and by displaying My glory in it ] . 9 You looked for much [harvest], and behold, it came to little; and even when you brought that home, I blew it away. Why? Says the Lord of Hosts. Because My house, which lies waste while you yourselves run each man to his own house [ eager to build and adorn it]. 10 Therefore the heavens above you [ for your sake] withhold the dew, and the earth withholds it's produce. 11 And I have called for a drought upon the land and the hill country, upon the grain, the fresh wine, the oil, upon what the ground brings forth, upon men and cattle, and upon all the [wearisome] toil of [men's] hands. Hag 2:3 Who is left among you who saw this house in its former glory ? And how do you see it now ? Is not this in your sight as nothing in comparison to that ? Hag 2:5-9 AMP "According to the promise that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so My Spirit stands and abides in the midst of you; fear not. 6 For thus says the Lord of Hosts; Yet once more, in a little while, I will shake and make tremble the [starry] heavens, the earth, the sea, and the dry land: [Heb 12:26] 7 And I will shake all nations and the desire and the precious things of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with splendor, says the Lord of Hosts. [ Is 60:5, Matt 2:1-12]. 8 The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine, says the Lord of Hosts. 9 The latter glory of this house [ with its successor, to which Jesus came] shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts; and in this place will I give peace and prosperity, says the Lord of Hosts." So weep and lament, repent and turn to ME, that I may restore the former days of glory, that I may restore all that the canker worm and devouring locusts have eaten. For My heart is to bring in the largest harvest the world has ever seen. But I have to 27
    • bring change to My church that she would be ready for those precious souls I will bring into the Kingdom. From: 11-20-03 “There is an alignment and an assembly of My terrible ones coming now. With shaking, I am also assembling those who are in MY army to come together in the spirit. They will know each other, even as I am known by them. They will not break ranks. They will not condemn each other or be jealous, or be envious of what the other has. I have loosed the beginnings, and I will escalate all that I have been doing now. Time is getting shorter, and I am going to rise up the dead, dry bones of my church, at least those who will heed the call. There is a company of John the Baptists, of the Spirit of Elijah coming forth, and they will confront the prostitution in My church and confront the sin, and teach the people the way of HOLINESS unto the LORD. They will speak, not from their own hearts, but the very words I have put in their mouths. And those words will be accompanied by My FIRE. And all will bow before ME when I send them forth. There will be a stirring as has never been seen in your times. There is coming forth as part of this army, many who will be touched and changed in a moment, they will be transformed by MY glory and they will do only as I say. I have been creating a generation that will not FEAR. I have been creating a generation that will be RADICAL for what they believe in. Who will be unafraid when they realize the Truth. Come and let us reason together My people, for the Lamb has arisen from His place of REST, and He is coming to transform and empower His army of warriors.” Awakening All Sleepers ! Nov 28th, 2003 3:00 am Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org I Am the All Consuming Fire ! I Am your Hiding place. I Am your Rock of Defense. I Am your Burning Desire. I Am the One Who is Faithful and True ! I Am the Manna, the Bread of Life. I Am the First and the Last, the Bright Morningstar! I Am the Pearl of great price. Awakening, awakening, awakening all sleepers ! Calling all cars ! Get on aboard ! I'm about to take roll call ! Are you ready to MOVE to the beat of MY DRUM? Are you ready to take instructions from Your Commander in Chief? Are you ready to be living flames of fire ? Get ready, for the ALL CONSUMING ONE is coming to your door. Will you let Him in? Be assured it is soon upon you. Transformations and translations will be the order of the day ! Do not hesitate when I call your name ! You will know, it will be more clear. Revilee is on the way ! Look up my beloveds, set your eyes to gazing upon ME. I WILL ARISE and My GLORY will be SEEN upon you ! Great darkness has risen upon the earth, but to you, My beloveds, the King of glory will arise over you, and you will go forth with FAVOR and GLORY upon you to reap the great harvest. I have set MY angels in place . They are awaiting the Trumpet sound. 28
    • Heard the song, " Arise, and shine, and give God the glory, glory ! " Rejoice, for the Lord Your God is coming to you to set all things in order, for all things are in His hands. Times and seasons are in His hands. Glory and favor, blessings, and healing are being poured outCome to the waters, for they are rising in the temples not made with human hands. They will rise further and exceed all limits of man. Can you see ? Can you hear ? I AM excited to be bringing you such a wonderful gift ! Open your eyes and open your hearts, and open your ears, and open your spirits to receive all I have to give you. Do NOT BE AFRAID. KNOW that my plans for you are beyond and above what you can imagine. If I told you, you would be so overwhelmed ! But I am launching a great surprise and you will be overwhelmed with JOY as it comes. Keep on walking my sons and daughters. I am drawing you to the high waters, that you may not just get a little wet, but that the waters may overflow you ! see Ezekial 47 th GOLDEN TRAIN VISION – Dec 4 , 2003 I saw a golden locomotive engine with billows of smoke coming out and surrounding it in glory. Upon the sides of the locomotive were angels with trumpets and they were blowing them loudly, as the train passed. It was weaving in and out of cities, and states, nations and flying across the ocean, not like a train that needed tracks, but did have a path to follow. As the trumpets blew people were drawn, as if to a siren and flying in the air, and entering the train in a most supernatural manner through it , like when Jesus walked through the walls to appear to the apostles. As they entered the train, they sat in seats, and on the inside everything was pure gold. There were tables at some seats and people were reading the Bible and then they would be excited as if something amazing just happened and they were thinking now, how to share this with others, and Some had laptops and would type in things they were getting in revelation from the word and posting it on internet. Some were taking the revelation and writing it down. Then they would fly off in some direction and take this information and preach it/teach it to others in some far off land, then return to the train. And although the train may have moved, they always knew where it was, and flew back to ride some more. It was as if the Lord Himself was the train somehow, and this was the place of rest for in between assignments for His people. Some were sleeping in births and listening to music, and some were playing music on instruments, and singing. They all seemed to know each other and to be able to communicate without any animosity or irritation. They seemed in harmony with each other. From: Dec 9th, 2003 Distractions of this world abound. They clutter and confuse and distract you from time with ME. But in the days coming, the light that is in you will shine brighter than ever before because of the new thing I AM doing. When the chains of injustice and sin are broken, you will be released into glory in ways you have not imagined. 29
    • So I am asking you now, to spend time with ME and to just SOAK in My love and goodness, that I can pour into you. Come to me in thanksgiving and worship, and in meditation on My word, and in prayer. Come and let us talk about all that concerns you. For I am longing to speak, if you would but still yourself. It is important NOW, because the coming days will not be restful. They will be filled with activity and stress and peril will increase. So COME to My table now, my beloveds, that I can fill you up with what you need to endure the days that are coming. Wondrous Works Dec 11th, 2003 Via Priscilla Van Sutphin “Eternity is about to invade the present. I promised you that even greater works you would do. I have drawn you to Me, I have asked you to spend time feeding on ME, that I may prepare you and impart even greater faith in you and change your heart to reflect My own. I stand at the door and knock. If I am asked in , I will come. If I am ignored, I will not. Some people have thought that I have ignored all their cries and longings of their hearts, but I have seen it. I have the whole of the world in my eye's view. I see the orphans in the streets, begging for money in all areas of the world. I see the children destitute of any form of affection and care. I see the neglected ones, the ones searching through garbage to find food scraps in North Korea. I see the widows all alone and taken advantage of by the greedy and avaricious. The pleas of the homeless, and addicted cry out to Me. My heart is torn for those who seem to just go on and on in an endless drivenness towards evil and deception. I see the prostitute who has lost all self respect and the ones in Thailand and India that are brutalized and lured in deception to the streets to be prey for every malicious person. I see murder in the streets of the cities. I see the innocents taken every day in abortion. I see the freezing cold victims in the winter on the streets, begging for coins so they can take them home to their drug addicted parents. MY HEART CRIES OUT TO MY PEOPLE TO TAKE NOTICE. Remember the words of Isaiah if YOU want to be blessed, then YOU reach out to others. The way of blessing is through obedience to MY will, and MY concept of KINGDOM. I am not a man that I should lie, nor a son of man that I should change My mind. So I tell you now, and have again and again, to PREPARE YE THE WAY OF THE LORD. Make the crooked places straight. What you hear in your ear, shout from the rooftops. DECLARE MY KINGDOM in your worship and prayers. DECLARE the coming of MY WILL. KNOW that the plans I have for ALL peoples of the world are on My heart. Not just your pitiful sufferings. Ask if My servants in China are less important when they are in prison and without any creature comforts, that you take for granted. 30
    • I have blessed YOU beyond any nations of the earth ! I have created you to be a LIGHT to the Nations. JUST as England had the same commission, I have put that commission on the church in America. But here you build big buildings and ministry leaders come first before the needs of the people. What good does it do you if you tell the one next door you'll pray, and yet He hasn't enough food to feed his children while you gorge yourselves on expensive wine and foods and actually throw away food that could have fed some poor stranger ? Did I not say that WHAT YOU DO TO THE LEAST OF THESE, YOU DO UNTO ME ? Did I not say to think of the other person as better than yourself ? Did I not tell you in the parable of Lazarus and the Rich man, that if you only seek your own satisfaction, and serve self, that you will end up like that rich man who ignored the needs of someone right at his doorstep. You cannot be ME. You cannot be the Savior. But I have called you to be MY ARMS, and MY HEART, to stretch out your hands and give to others that they might know some comfort, that with which YOU have been comforted with. I know My true servants. I know those who seek after how they can help, how they can give. And those who have shut up their hearts and rejected the poor, rejected looking for MY OPINION on each person that comes their way, will be in hunger and desperation themselves in the days ahead. Consider your ways. Consider that soon I will come, and what can you carry with you ? Will you be like Lot's wife ? Or will you be MY BRIDE like ESTHER who sacrificed all for the sake of her nation, and obeyed My commands ? Put away the old man. Put on the new ! ARISE and SHINE for Your LIGHT is about to break forth. I will make My face to SHINE upon you in ways you have not imagined. But YOU must come to ME and let me tenderize your heart for the sake of how I want to establish MY JUSTICE, and MY KINGDOM. Forsake the building of another's kingdom and come BUILD MY KINGDOM ! For I AM THE ETERNAL ONE. I AM THE ALL CONSUMING FIRE. I AM COMING TO ESTABLISH APOSTOLIC RULE. AND THAT DAY IS NOT FAR OFF. IT WILL BE A DAY OF WEEPING AND TRAVAIL FOR ALL YOU SEE . BUT I WILL HAVE MY WAY. I WILL TRANSFORM MY CHURCH AND I WILL MAKE MY BRIDE WHOLE ! NO STONE WILL BE LEFT UNCOVERED ! Surely I AM POWERFUL enough to accomplish what I said I will do. IT WILL BE A MIGHTY ACT OF GRACE. NOT THROUGH STRIVING. I JUST WANT YOU TO COME TO ME. SPEND TIME IN MY ARMS ! How would you feel if your mate neglected you and ignored you ? Wouldn't you feel unloved ? If they tried to talk to you and you ignored them, how would they react ? Do I react that way to you, though you ignore ME at times ? No ! I have been patient. I have been full of GRACE and love, no matter what condition you have been in. No matter how much you ignore Me, I try and try again to lure you into My arms. That is unconditional LOVE. YOU never give up on those you truly love. 31
    • I am enraptured with you ! You are dark but LOVELY to ME, because of the blood of MY SON ! You fail, and try again, and fail, and try again, but I keep on loving you. I don't give up. MY LOVE NEVER FAILS. I am patient, and humble of heart. I will never, never, never leave you. So I am asking you, for the time is short, to not delay any longer in bringing yourself before ME, to ask for healing, to ask for deliverance, to ask for INCREASE in MY character, in MY power, which only comes MORE as My character is built in you. My train is picking up speed. Angels are being dispatched to many areas of the earth where there is a reestablishment of the tabernacle of David where PRAISE and worship and PRAYER is established and people take directions from the revelation MY SPIRIT gives them. It is this NEW thing that I am doing in the earth to reestablish WORSHIP as key to the rise in witchcraft in the world. Heard the song: Come, now is the time to Worship ! Come and wash your feet in My presence. Come and shake off the world's influence in My presence. I abide in the praises of My people. COME ! Tremendous Change Dec 30th, 2003 2:00 am Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org “These are days of catapulting and launching into the times that will culminate the end of all time. You are about to be shaken and stirred, changed and rearranged. Yes, I am changing the furniture around in My church. I am changing assignments with those I love. I am changing and rearranging so that all that I've told will be fulfilled. I'm a Master organizer I designed the heavens and the earth, so nothing, nothing, nothing is impossible with ME ! NOTHING can stand in the way My beloveds of these days I have prepared for you. You are coming out of the caves, and it is time to see the LIGHT of the SON ! You are about to get a spectacular view of the things to come. It will come in surprising ways, and you will wonder when you look back, that you could have doubted or considered My words to you as your own flesh. What you will experience, is nothing that you can compare to anything. So don't even try to speculate. It will come, and it will come swiftly and just on time. You will see the wisdom in all I have done, and your eyes will be more opened to the wisdom of what I am calling you to do, once I have helped slay the giants in your land; in your minds and hearts. Everything that is not of ME, will be laid waste in those who have been willing to count the cost. Know that I am WITH you and will be with you MORE in the most wonderful way. Rejoice, and again I say REJOICE for what I am about to do, though you can't see it yet. Be filled with thankfulness and praise and spend yourselves on ME, that I may fill you up in the midst of the worship ! I love you like no other loves you! And I am bringing to fulfillment many of your dreams and desires and the alignments that are important to fulfilling MY goals. Don't be afraid of the changes I call you to ! Let ME 32
    • take the helm, for I know what is best don't I. I know what lies ahead ! Let go of all the control and TRUST ME with your lives. I AM ARISING IN YOU ! I WILL BE SEEN UPON YOU BY THE MASSES ! They may doubt now, but when I'm done with the finishing touches, My how you will shine and lay waste all the doubt of the mockers. Many will change and come to the LIGHT OF MY GLORY, but there will also be the stubborn, that though mountains fall in their presence, would not give in. I will separate the wheat from the chaff in your perception and vision, that you will know who to spend time on and who not. You WILL increase in discernment again, because the old strongholds, and old fodder will be done away with, and you'll be able to see and hear more clearly. KNOW that I am in the still small voice ! Not the voice of harshness, not to My beloveds. Remember those who stood with Moses wanting to hear for themselves ? Remember how they BEGGED him to be their mediary, after they heard for themselves ? For it was powerful and terrible to their ears. They only prepared 3 daysand then many ran away, unable to handle the presence and sound of My voice. Remember Gideon, how when they shouted, the enemy's camp was thrown into confusion ? Do not think I have not had a plan for all those who oppose me. YOU WILL DO GREAT EXPLOITS because I will be with you even MORE in measure and you will not look back except to laugh that you could have doubted My goodness towards you ! Flexibility is a tool of the great warrior, because a warrior must be prepared for changes in the strategies of the enemy. Flexibility will enable you to say YES, when I call for a dramatic change, without doubting ! If I say go to the train station and take a trip from New York to Mexico, or a plane from France to South Africa, you will do it without hesitating. I will be giving you more specific directions. And nothing will be withheld from your hands as the GLORY of My presence touches you. Whatever your need, so long as you are willing to obey, will be met. Do not question, do not doubt ! Remember Zachariah, the father of John the Baptist, how he doubted, and then lost his voice ? Keep your hearts from the things of this world. For they are all perishable. But YOU are My jewels and I will make you to walk on the high hills of the earth. Authority is coming, a new authority, and a new HOLINESS, that will not be moved, that will not go backwards that will not give in to the ploys of the enemy. I have golden scepters to hand out to many that will obey my command to GO, and you will see the things your hearts have longed to see, in greater measure than you've imagined. Honestly come before ME and let ME take all the issues of your life and heal them and make you WHOLE ! Come and behold My beauty, for I am Your King and Your delight and YOU ARE MINE ! I will shower you with blessings and abundance, once I have purged My threshing floor, and you will go forth like prophets and apostles of old with courage and filled with My power to heal and deliver. Even if people forsake helping you, I will see to it that your needs are met. Even the ravens fed Elijah, so 33
    • keep your eyes on ME and your ears on My chest. Like My SON, you will not lack what you NEED, and power and authority will be given to those wanting HIS character, not just His hand. Like My apostles, you will not go alone. Those who have been alone, will no longer be lonely. I will be with you, and I will yoke you with others that you may be MORE effective in all you do together. Wherever two or more are together, I am in your midst. Do not yield to competition and petty jealousies, for it will destroy those who yield to it now. Understand that My goodness is towards EVERYONE. I am not willing that ANY should perish. All judging will be turned to LOVE ! All suspicion and doubt will be turned to FAITH. All depression and sadness will be turned to JOY. I have given you BEAUTY for ashes, and the JOY of the LORD will be your strength. Come and rejoice at the adventure that lies ahead of you. Glimpses of Eternity Dec 31st, 2003 Priscilla Van Sutphin When My Kingdom invades the present, there is revival. I am giving you glimpses of eternity in the things I am pouring out this next year. There will be a reoccurance of the supernatural in powerful bursts of flames of living fire in My beloveds. You will experience SURGES of My Spirit in waves like electricity, that will annhilate the strongholds of the enemy in your midst. Do not be remiss about keeping the disciplines of daily living. Wash your feet daily. Put on your armor DAILY. Do not forget the little things. The enemy seeks to take full advantage of the hour. Keep HIDDEN in ME. Glory of enormous magnitude cleanses and delivers, but it comes as a sword, if you are not willing to be healed. For the one who opposes MY Spirit's work, will suffer terribly and be given over to a reprobate mind. My sword comes to deliver. My sword comes to heal and transform and to save. But to those who oppose me in their hearts, and pretend and lie, it will divide. I am separating the precious from the worthless. Keep your minds STAYED on ME. Keep your eyes and ears from perversion and destruction. Isa 33:14-17 NKJV You have cried out to have more of Me, and I am doing that, but it is painful to die. The flesh resists the death to self and fights. But I will help you if you remain in ME. I will do it in you and you will be freed to be all you desire to be. Many of you will experience the beauty realm as never before and be taken into the halls of My Kingdom to see the treasures I have stored up for those who are faithful. Many who disdain the prophetic will be turned around sovereignly by MY hand to realize that they have believed a lie, and will repent and be filled with My Spirit and whole churches and movements will be affected. 34
    • Those who are in opposition again, will be judged expediently to keep My people from being discouraged from going into the harvest fields and bringing for in the sheaves. I am enabling the BODY of Christ to move and have their being in ME, that the LOST will be harvested. Many in the cults will be saved and transformed and draw others with them. Remember to be patient with the new believers I will bring in and prepare your churches and homes to receive them as you would receive ME. They are precious in My site. They will need sound teachers, so I am raising up those with teaching anointing to prepare them with the milk and MEAT of My word. I will give you wisdom and provision to clean the FISH that I bring in. Many will be harvested sovereignly by MY SPIRIT, and will have great need to understand and learn. So what I've told you to WRITE. Write and walk in faith ! For I will bring the provision to publish and to secure all that is needed to advance MY KINGDOM. 11 th Hour of Power Priscilla van Sutphin Jan 27th, 2004 11:11 pm www.upstreamca.org I have chosen for Myself a most peculiar army for this hour. They are peculiarly precious unto Me, and I will make them My jewels ! I am gathering and I am scattering. I am winnowing and I am perfecting. I am really pleased with My work you see. I can see that My children are really getting to know the depth of My love for them. Little by little and grace by grace, more is being deposited, and they will come forth with a sweet fragrance in them, that will capture the hearts of all around them. Just as Esther soaked in myrrh, then perfumes for six months, being rubbed and rubbed, and rubbed daily with perfumes, I am rubbing my goodness into you. I am rubbing in HOPE. I am rubbing in LOVE. I am rubbing in PEACE. I am rubbing in Patience and PERSERVERANCE, that you may go higher in your faith and not turn back again. I have so many gifts to bestow on My Bride ! I am making her like My strong horse in battle, and she will not turn away from the fight of the ages. She will go forward in a CONFIDENCE in who she is and I will fight along side her. Nothing can separate us. I am looking forward to this battle, My love ! Aren't you ? Those in heaven are awaiting it and have been interceding for it. My angels are at attention. They are waiting for orders and many have already been sent down to engage the enemy's forces. I have given you many tools of war My Bride and I am not going to leave you alone in the battle. Remember how Gehazi saw that those with them were more than those against them ? KNOW that I have a plan to make a spectacle of the enemy ! Just when he thinks he has the upper hand, is when he is in for a fall. His rage will be stirred, when he sees the fullness of My planso I am telling you ahead of time, that I have all planned out in advance, so that even then, MY love, YOU WILL BE HELD IN 35
    • THE PALM OF MY HAND ! Restrain yourselves from giving in to FEAR ! For I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of POWER, and LOVE, and a sound mind ! I AM FAITHFUL AND TRUE. I will not forsake you in the darkest hour My love. Keep your eyes in My Word, for I am pouring out revelation for these times, so you will know what is ahead before it happens. I do nothing lest I tell my servants, My prophets ! So EXPECT to see more than you have seen. Expect Me to show you great and mighty things that lie ahead. EXPECT to receive a greater portion of My love and My power, and authority ! For I am coming to your side, just as a Bridegroom does, and I will execute vengeance on Our enemies ! And I will use you to do it ! I will put MY WORDS in your mouth and you will use it like a SWORD. I will give you wisdom for each and every situation , that you will know what is happening. I will increase the seven fold Spirit in My Bride, that she will do GREAT EXPLOITS in My Name ! Glory upon glory, and grace upon grace will be poured out. Look to Me, for I AM the LOVER of your soul, and I am releasing and stirring up the hearts of the young. A little child shall lead them. One will set a thousand to flight and two will set 10,000 to flight. I am releasing groanings and utterances and travail will bring forth great passion and compassion that will loose the prisoners from their bonds. I will increase the FIRE of INTERCESSION, even in the little ones of My flock, so do not be afraid ! Do not hinder what I do in them ! I will use their innocent hearts to set thousands to flight. Agree with their prayers and groanings. Ask them what I am doing and I will show them what to say to you. You will find yourself learning from them ! For I don't use those mighty in their own opinions. I use the meek ! I use the WEAK to confound the strong ! My army will walk in HUMILITY and FORGIVENESS and will have MY COMPASSION and STRENGTH. I will do mighty miracles through old and young alike. I will use those, noone expects to be used. I am not a God of partiality, or exclusivity ! I bring beauty for ashes, and the oil of joy for mourning. I work in the opposites to the ways of this world. So expect to be dazzled ! Expect to see things you have NEVER seen. Expect to see wonders ! Expect also to see counterfeits rise up, but know that they have already begun with their mechanical means to imitate what I do through various devices and tricks. YOU WILL SEE THROUGH IT MY BRIDE. Believe Me when I say that I LOVE YOU and have passionately been waiting for this day when I would make you My jewels in My crown ! I will do a mighty and remarkable thing, that man may not take credit for ! GET ready to be suddenly surprised ! I delight in surprises and you will too when you receive them ! Your biggest surprise will be the suddenness with which I do this marvelous work. And it will happen all over the world. It will not be like before. I will also stir up the youth of the nations like a battering RAM, and they will enter into the battle with fervor and zeal, such as not been seen in many generations. Do you have a daughter or son who is awol ? PROCLAIM OVER THEM what I have said about them ! Stop begging and start PROCLAIMING ! Speak the truth of the Word over them. Speak it outloud ! 36
    • Speak it loud and clear to the enemy of your soul. For MY righteous indignation BURNS at what he has done to them through his many strategies. But I am telling you that they will be UNDONE. IN A MOMENT, they will be TRANSFORMED. In a MOMENT ! That is all it takes for ME to change them ! Stop worrying, stop fretting about the one who is caught by the enemy in all kinds of sin, in drinking and in smoking, and in drugs. FOR IT IS NOTHING FOR ME TO TOUCH THEM. I WILL DO IT ! TRUST ME AND SEE WHAT I WILL DO IN THIS GENERATION CALLED X. HAHAHA. I AM THE LORD AND THERE IS NO OTHER ! AND THEY WILL KNOW IT. I HAVE ORDAINED THE TIMES. I HAVE ORDAINED THE HOUR. I AM COMING LIKE A MIGHTY ROARING WIND ! THEY WILL BE CHANGED IN A MOMENT ! IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE ! Extraterrestrial Sightings via Priscilla Van Sutphin Feb 7th, 2004 www.upstreamca.org "Today is a day of the supernatural. Many are looking to counterfeits as though they were the original of my creation. They call demons "extraterrestrials" as if they have human virtue even. Little do they know what they are entertaining ! Just as the pagans worship demons, so they give worship to these "beings" they give honor to, and fantasize about how they might give some supernatural power to them. But I tell you they are demonized in the pursuit of evil. And thus the world continues to spiral towards fulfillment of all sorts of perversion as I said would happen in these times. Can you see it My children ? Can you see the deception that is set up for the end time play out of events ? There is a shaking coming because of the increase in evil of every kind. I have called you as PRIESTS OF THE LORD MOST HIGH to speak the truth and teach the difference between good and evil. See Ezek 44:15-24 NKJV The wicked now claim to be able to create human life, and steal from ME the honor and glory due My name ! They think they have the keys to life and death. Their arrogance has arisen to the heavens and it will be met with humbling and judgment ! I will SHOW GREAT DISPLAYS OF MY POWER SO THAT ALL THE EARTH WILL KNOW THAT I ALONE AM GOD AND THERE IS NO OTHER ! I have My own extraterrestrials and they are angels of GLORY and they are awesome to behold and they are coming to your home, and to your neighborhood, and greater are they who are for you, than they who are against you ! The wicked surround My beloved Israel and do harlotry in her midst, and no one is outraged enough to boldness to proclaim My truth PUBLICALLY ! Where is the Lord God of Elijah they cry out. BUT I CRY AND I WEEP, AND I SAY, "WHERE IS THE ONE WHO WILL WEEP WITH ME ? " WHERE IS THE PRIEST WHO WILL CRY BETWEEN THE PORCH AND THE ALTAR. WHERE IS FAITH ? WHERE IS THE ONE WHO WILL STAND UP AGAINST THE EVILDOERS ? Where there is injustice, 37
    • when will MY people who are called by MY NAME stand up for righteousness and justice ? There are merely a FEW who would declare My word to this generation. So I will do a MIGHTY WORK in your time among the young and the remnant of My people who choose MY ways to their own ! I will pour out MY GLORY; the fire of MY LOVE and I will empower them in a most unusual way that they will be LIFE to those in darkness and LIGHT to the blind. I will RESTORE all that the enemy has stolen. I will come with POWER and MIGHT to declare My works to this generation and they will be raised up as a mighty army and will be made MY SHEWBREAD ! I will STRIKE at the heart of IDOLATRY in the lands of the earth and I will show signs in the heavens and earth below. I will not let their words fall to the ground, like Samuel. I will give them BOLDNESS like Elijah, I will give them HUMILITY like Moses, and a heart like DAVID ! I will give them the BEST of ALL of the heroes of the faith ! They will be MIGHTY and nothing will withstand the blade of righteousness that I put in your hands ! I will destroy the ramparts of the enemy ! I will bring down false religions and false ideologies, I will SLAY the dragon of Buddhism ! I will destroy the WALL of the spirit of ISLAM ! I will destroy all that lifts itself up against ME and MY people ! I will make utter chaos in the kingdom of darkness ! I will slay the wicked with the sword of judgment, who will not turn to ME. If you do not weep for the LOST, how can you understand MY LOVE AND COMPASSION for them ? You cannot even love each other, so how can you love the lost with MY LOVE ? BRANDISH your hearts ! GIVE them to ME for restoration My beloveds, for I am coming with a terrible swift sword in My hands ! Ask for the FIRE and I will bring it ! ASK for deliverance and I will bring it ! Ask for healing and I will bring it ! Ask for salvation for friends and loved ones, and I will bring it. Encourage yourselves in FAITH, for you will have much need for it in the ensuing days ! RECOGNIZE the signs of the times. Which of you are willing to see the souls of the perishing as I see them ? Which of you are willing to GO when I ask you to GO for US ? WHEN will you understand MY PRIORITIES are NOT your priorities ? My ways are NOT your ways ! I am concerned with souls. I am concerned with healing and deliverance. While you meet in committees to decide how to make more money for your ministry, I AM WEEPING for the souls I see perishing every day ! While you sit comfortably in your homes, I am WEEPING for the homeless ! When will you practice true religion even with those who sit in your own churches ? Do you have single mothers who are barely making it ? Do you care that they are worn out and too embarrassed to ask for your help ? Who of you will give heed to the WORDS I have spoken and seek MY OPINION on that one who sits next to you in church who has no friend, or no place to lay his head ? Who has no car, or no conveniences in his life ? The one who earns minimum wage and eats rice and beans everyday while you gorge yourselves on more and more ! SELF will be destroyed when 38
    • I COME ! The flesh will be burned. Why not ask for it now, that you may have MY EYES to see with, My ears to hear with, and My heart to weep with ? Come and I will show you things you have not been able to see ! I will show you pain and sorrow, I will show you beauty realms and the wonders of heaven, if you will but come and gain MY HEART and MY COMPASSION ! Come MY beloveds, for I long to show you the best of all things and the worst of all things that you may be TRANSFORMED to MY LIKENESS and image, and ways. I AM the LOVER of your souls, and NOTHING is too hard for ME. Come and let me change the strings of your heart. Come and let me take you HIGHER into realms of GLORY. Abba Virtual Reality March 3rd, 2004 Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org The reality of My Kingdom is coming full force upon the earth. The reality of My SON will be evident in the works of the Kingdom that you will do on My behalf as My ambassadors of peace. The reality of GOOD vs EVIL in the world will be apparent to all. Darkness is rising, and My LIGHT will also rise in YOU ! And MY GLORY WILL BE SEEN UPON YOU. ( Is 60 ) Those who think it is amazing to watch things in holograms or virtual experiences have not seen ANYTHING compared to what I am going to do. Those who are enraptured with the wrong kind of power; powers of demons of witchcraft, like hypnosis, and séances, as if that were really something special, will be clamoring to figure out what is going on. See Isa 44:24-25 NKJV MY POWER is not to be bought or transferred to the mocking and unholy. I have said, DO NOT TOUCH MY GLORY ! And glory is coming that will strike FEAR in the hearts of men ! I will dazzle you, and I will astound those who already know ME. So imagine what it will be like for the lost ? Those things they felt SO strongly about will be overturned. Those things they put their trust in will utterly FAIL. Men will go MAD for they have chosen to trust in their own strength and knowledge instead of looking to ME, the Author and Finisher of your faith ! They will be tormented because they have put their trust in what THEY could do, the money they could make. Infirmity and Torment are consequences of dabbling in witchcraft for many. And as it rises, it will seek to take out many who have given themselves to it, in an attempt to steal as many souls as it can. BUT I HAVE MY PLANS. I have MY WARRIORS, that I have trained and empowered for such a time as this. I fed them on the BREAD of LIFE, and trained them for confrontation with darkness in ways that many do not yet understand. They will emerge from their caves and I will empower them even more greatly than they have imagined. There will be shockwaves through the Christian world and the secular news. What I do will astound many, and MANY will come to the brightness of My GLORY. 39
    • Those who have been in training KNOW and understand , and have been waiting. And you will not be disappointed in all the sacrifices you have had to make ! The power of the enemy is nothing compared to MINE. My church has not seen ME as BIG enough. You've only TASTED a tiny bit of My power. Even those in revival churches have not seen the fullness of the power of MY GLORY as yet. Many have been satisfied with little. BUT I am increasing your thirst, and your hunger, that you will WANT ALL that I have for you. I am creating a longing in My bride for the fullness of intimacy with the Bridegroom, so that just a little will no longer do. Just a tidbit will not satisfy your souls. GLORY is like that, a touch will make you HUNGRY for MORE. For in that MOMENT of time, you have tasted a bit of heaven on earth, and nothing can compare again to that beauty realm. I will satisfy the hungry soul. I will fill those who are thirsty for ME. I will give all that you need for all that is ahead. BE ASSURED, I will defend My BRIDE as a natural bridegroom would defend his bride. The thief comes to kill, to steal, and to rob, but I am coming with MORE of MY resurrection life and you will become living flames of fire in My hands. And I will ROAR over My own, and protect them from the lies of the enemy. They will lay down their lives willingly in the day of MY POWER ! Dramatic Deliverance March 10th, 2004 Gen 45:7 NKJV Priscilla van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org And God sent me before you to preserve a posterity for you in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. Obad 17-18 NKJV Israel's Final Triumph "But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; The house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. 18 The house of Jacob shall be a fire, And the house of Joseph a flame; But the house of Esau shall be stubble; They shall kindle them and devour them, and no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau, "For the LORD has spoken. "I have a message for those of you whom I will raise up like Joseph. I am bringing forth many changes in your lives, that I may position you for great deliverances. Many of you have been used as catalysts for revival and sown many seeds for Me in a number of ways. But now I am changing the course of direction for you that you may be in a position to help MANY more be delivered from the times of great destruction coming on the earth. So you need to draw near Me to get My plans, day to day. I have new alignments I am making to bring forth the finances that will fund the end times army and I have great ideas for making wealth for many who have a marketplace anointing. I am LOOSING those in the earth now, that you will be prepared. But know this, that I am doing this for the benefit of MY PEOPLEnot just so you can hoard and spend it as 40
    • you wish. This is for the deliverance of others, not only yourself. I will invest much into your hands that you can distribute it as I will. So many lives will depend on your obedience in this matter. So do not neglect the secret place in Me. Do not fail to spend time with ME so that you can get My will translated into your hearts. Many of you will have homes of refuge. Many of you will have communities of refuge. Many of you will have resources of gold given you, and some of that will be supernaturally provided, as you put your trust in Me. I have many plans to bless you and to bring you to the place of death to self, that many others may live and not die, but go through to the end. So many are looking for deliverance from this earth, when what I want is deliverance from your flesh and the enemy, and the world. Who will GO for us ? Who will lay down their lives and pick up MINE ? Foxes have holes and birds have nests, but the Son of man had no place to lay his head. He had to depend on others for support and hospitality. Many of you have too much pride yet inside of you to be that flexible. Can you give up NOW at this point, your idea of what you want to do and put it in My hands ? I will give it back and provide all you need. It is a heart transition that I am calling for. I want you to be willing at any moment to change direction or roles as I lead you to. But if you are stubborn and unyielding, how can I ask you to do anything on the spur of the moment ? You will then hesitate. Hesitation can get you killed in a perilous world. You must be willing to OBEY and ACT when I say to do something. That is the kind of obedience I am calling for. Are you willing to lay down all your addictions to the things of this world and to lay down your will for Mine ? If you will, I will use you as My mouthpiece and I will wreak great deliverances through you for many who are My own, or who WILL be Mine ! I will break the power of spirits of bondage to sex, drugs, alcohol, entertainment and all forms of idolatry if you will lay down all the idols in your own heart. But as long as you cling to your OWN opinions and your own ideas for your life, how can you be free to do what I WANT ? Don't you know how much I LOVE YOU ? There is nothing that you will lack if you are willing to love Me in this way. I am asking for TOTAL SURRENDER. No more me, myself or I in the picture. Just obedience to My will. If you will love ME back in this manner. I will use you to terrify the forces of hell, and NOTHING will be impossible for you. GREAT miracles will follow you wherever you go. Great deliverance from all forms of evil will happen as you encounter the forces of the enemy. [ See Isa 60:1-4 NKJV] Prominent leaders in business and industry will be saved and bring great change in influencing many others for the kingdom of God. For many do not see ME as BIG as I really am. To many I am still a weak, impotent God, even within My church who calls Me by their name yet at the same time they blaspheme My name by making me a mere man in the eyes of others. I am not a God afar off, but close at hand ! There is nothing impossible for Me. NOTHING is impossible with ME. NO-THING is impossible for ME ! My love never fails, and I will not fail My church in this hour. But I AM preparing her for her 41
    • finest hour and I will have a SPOTLESS BRIDE. I have loosed many more angels for this end times scenario and I will accomplish all My heart longs to in the preparing of My Bride. You are on the precipice of revival and many are looking for me in the clouds when there is still so much more to be done to accomplish the preparation of My Bride. Many of you are unawares of the violence that fills the lives of many of My children all over the world. They are MORE PREPARED THAN YOU ARE ! They are more prepared because they have been through much lack and pain, and they know how to seek My face and how to suffer with ME, that their pain would be accounted to them for the GLORY that is to come. I told you that if you share in My suffering , you will share in My GLORY. But that glory exposes your weaknesses, and brings awareness of your fallibility and utter nothingness without ME. THAT IS WHAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO DO. BECAUSE IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU DO, IT IS ABOUT WHAT I DO THROUGH YOU ! IF YOU COULD DO IT ON YOUR OWN, THERE WOULD BE NO REASON FOR ME. BUT YOU CANNOT GO THINKING " Oh now I'm ready, because I am more perfect ! " NO, that 's not the way it works My beloveds. You are not to strive to be as perfect as the big name evangelists and teachers. You are to put all your trust in ME to move through you. In your WEAKNESS, I can be shown to be STRONG. When you are absent of pride in what you can do, then you are more ready for Me to move through you. You must become empty of yourselves to be filled with ME. Thank ME for your weaknesses. For in your weakness, people can see that it is not YOU doing the miracles and healings. It is ME. When you think yourself the least capable, then that is when I can use you, without you taking the glory for yourself! THAT is the KEY. You can not think, only if I reach this place of perfection, then I can be used. NO ! That is the voice of religious striving! I just want you to OBEY Me as I tell you what to do. I don't use the perfect. Not many wise are chosen, remember ? Remember always that My love NEVER fails for you. I am not here waiting with a hammer to beat you down. If you will just OBEYthen I will loose all you need to do what I have told you. BUT YOU MUST TAKE THE STEPS OF FAITH. March 24, 2004 A HOLY BOLDNESS will overtake you, and there will be a reestablishment of apostolic holiness that will usher in an apostolic age. MY LOVE will be poured out in unprecedented measure, so that the bondages of fear and insecurity and compromise in My church will be broken. You will be catapulted into your destinies as transformation takes place. Nothing will be impossible for you, for I will be with you in a more powerful way. Continue to worship Me and be EXPECTANT ! For I WILL raise the bar ! You will go higher and higher and you will FLY with Me. You will SOAR to new levels of manifesting My love and GRACE 42
    • March 28, 2004 Martyrdom is coming to the earth in unprecedented measure already compared to the past. Yet many do not even want to hear of the suffering of their brothers and sisters, or the torture and maiming, because they do not want to accept that I have allowed such a thing to happen. FEAR has gripped their hearts too tightly. Many as in the days of Gideon will succomb to the fear of the enemy in the coming tumult. But I WILL DEFEND My own till their hour of assignment on the earth is finished ! Watch What I DO ! Priscilla Van Sutphin April 10th, 2004 www.upstreamca.org I desire mercy and not sacrifice I have said. So though men do not deserve it, when you show it to undeserving men or women, it is a character trait like Mine. For I am good to the ungrateful, even as I have been good to you when you have been ungrateful. I love you and adore you, and you are My precious daughters and sons ! I feel that way towards all My creation, though they spit on Me, and gnashed at Me with their gritted teeth, I died for them. I am about to do some transformations in such men, who think they know everything who think because they have everything they could ever want, they don't need Me ! I will bring revelation, and I will bring judgment depending on what is best for the situation, but watch and see what I will do in them who think they have Me all figured out ! I will take those who play ME for a fool, and they will eat the dust of the earth and grovel for mercy when I am done ! I will shake their foundations and they will know that I am GOD ! They will no longer think they can do ANYTHING apart from ME ! Watch how I come into seminaries and shake them ! Watch how I shake institutions of "higher" learning ! Watch how I come into the palaces of KINGS and Rulers and SHAKE them to their knees ! For I am ALMIGHTY ! And though they have defied ME, they will bow down at MY FEET and yours ! They will KNOW that I have loved you ! The power of the CROSS will heal even the most hostile and wounded soul ! There will be those who are beyond foolishness, and who have given themselves to wickedness, that will be ushered into MY KINGDOM, and they will cry out and bring in MANY MORE ! I will take Mafia bosses and turn them into tender hearted bravehearts ! I will take drug lords and turn them into Joshuas for My Kingdom ! THERE is NOTHING too powerful for ME to heal and save and deliver ! I will take sons and daughters who have abandoned ME entirely thinking I have abandoned them in their woundedness, and terminate all the power of the enemy in their lives, and they will go forth singing and shouting with JOY in their hearts and 43

KNOW that this will be MORE than you can imagine ! KNOW that I am DETERMINED to have a HOLY and SPOTLESS BRIDE, and nothing can stop ME ! Those who oppose this move, will find themselves in deep MIRE. Though they fight, they will not prevail. For the Son of Righteousness is arising with HEALING in His WINGS, and there will be STARTLING MIRACLES and SIGNS AND WONDERS ! Upon it's back will come LYING SIGNS and WONDERS by demonically inspired people that will try to mimic what I dobut like Jannes and Jambres, they will not succeed. MY POWER will be UNSTOPPABLE. MY LOVE will penetrate the hearts of EVERYONE who calls themselves by MY NAME ! It will expose to all the condition of their own heart and many will be in the VALLEY of DECISION.

Will I not exact a price for deliberate defiance of ME ? Is there not much blood shed on this land ? Murder of babies in the womb, Murder of children, murder of spouses, murder of families, murder of strangers for the money found in their wallet, murder of corporate leaders for the sake of advancement and money. Murder by Satanists of innocent children, women and men. The filth of Baal has overwhelmed many in this nation. And yet they have the presumption to try to clone human beings. I AM LOVE, and I AM JUSTICE as well. I AM jealous for your sake ! HIDE yourself in ME ! I AM THE EVERLASTING ONE. I AM ADONAI, Your LORD and MASTER. Turn to ME while it is still light, for the darkness is encroaching, but I have a harvest to reap. And I am expecting you to be fishermen and fishcleaners for this great harvest. Though it will come by MY MIGHTY HAND, I have need of you. 44

I AM the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I know you through and through. I know your coming out and your going in. I know the very hairs on your head. I know your thoughts and I know the intentions of your heart. Will you not bow before ME ? Will you not worship ME ? Give ALL to ME. Surrender all the way ! Surrender YOUR dreams and I will give you mine ! Surrender all your opinions, and I will give you mine ! Surrender All your assumptions and I will give you My Truth ! Lay down all your concerns, all your worries, all your anxieties within you, and I will give you PEACE that passes all understanding.

    • 8 Rejoice not against me, O my enemy! When I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light to me. 9 I will bear the indignation of the Lord because I have sinned against Him, until He pleads my cause and executes judgment for me. He will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold His righteous deliverance. [Rom 10:1-4; 11:23-27.] 10 Then my enemy will see it, and shame will cover her who said to me, Where is the Lord your God? My eyes will see my desire upon her; now she will be trodden down as the mire of the streets. … Then He said, " RESURRECTION POWER" . And proceeded to say, " I am resurrecting MY LIFE in you My beloveds ! I am resurrecting Resurrection Life and all you come to this flood of My glory will be healed and delivered. All who are willing will have their heart's desire answered ! I am resurrecting HOPE. I am resurrecting LOVE, and JOY and all manner of FRUIT for the sake of My love for you and for all who are made in MY IMAGE. I am coming to purify and perfume My bride ! I will kiss you, and kiss you, and kiss you ! Nothing will be impossible, for I AM that I AM ! I AM the ALMIGHTY GOD AND NOTHING IS TOO DIFFICULT FOR ME ! I will exercise MY REIGN on this earth, despite the plans of man. And be alert My beloveds for you will be hated by those who serve the creature, rather than the creation, though there will be a few years of plenty left, then will come great consternation on the earth, and great darkness. This is for HARVEST. I will have MANY FISH for you to clean and help. I WILL GIVE YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED. All things will become new, and I will rule and reign in the midst of My people. Certainly all things I have told you and prepared you for will come about. Do not think I will leave you or brush you aside.

    • 1 a : passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another : CHANGE b : a movement, development, or evolution from one form, stage, or style to another 2 – not relevant 3 : an abrupt change in energy state or level (as of an atomic nucleus or a molecule) usually accompanied by loss or gain of a single quantum of energy. “ I have catapulted many of you into a state of transition to ready you for what I am about to do in changing your lives, that the promises I’ve made, and the plans I have for you may be accomplished. Transitions are hard. Change is hard. But if you will yield fully to the purging I am doing, and to My leading, you will be so elated at the final stage ! You have no idea yet the beautiful thing I am doing, or how much I love you. I am so pleased with My progress you see. I am causing changes that will lead to UNITY and LOVE being made paramount in the body of Christ. See John 17:10-12 NKJV & John 17:15-26 Amplified I have told you in My Word, that if you come to know and understand the depth of My love for you, then you can be filled with the fullness of God ! ( Eph 3:18 ) It is MY LOVE that leads to repentance. So as you pour out this love I’ve given you to those who don’t know it. LOVE GROWS and is nurtured, and then they are able to receive it and give it. The Kingdom grows, because of shifts in belief. No longer will they believe the lies, because they will SEE and HEAR, and see DEMONSTRATED the LOVE of God that I have put in you. For love to be believed, it must be demonstrated. If your mother or father constantly TOLD you they loved you, but didn’t act like it. Would you believe them ? Wouldn’t you doubt? And in fact many youth in this age feel a lack of love shown. Many others also are love starved. They need to have more than TALK. Talk does not convince anyone of love. It is self sacrifice and DEMONSTRATING IT, that influences change in people. People have had enough TALK. Empty talk has been quite prevalent in the church. I love you, God loves you, but no DEMONSTRATION. I still go home to my house and sleep quite comfortably while little children starve, while people are being killed. I sing and I dance, and celebrate, but where is the weeping ? Where is the rejoicing with those who rejoice, and weeping with those who weep ???? The world, and especially this generation which is the most knowledgeable yet, KNOWS WHEN PEOPLE ARE NOT BEING REAL ! THEY KNOW ! I want My church to reflect MY LOVE. NOT your own conditional love, but MY UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. I don’t judge by the outside. I don’t judge by actions even of others, but I LOOK AT THE HEART. I am WAITING for the church to RISE UP and call ME LORD of their lives ! I am waiting for the church to be perfected in love, so that unlike the priest and pharisee in the parable of the GOOD SAMARITAN, they will not pass by those who are in great need of healing and deliverance ! For some, I will just want you to be their friend, to show them love and care. 47
    • When you have MY LOVE, then you will FEEL the pain in others. You will see the pain and roots of pain, and be willing to lay down your life in the sense of praying with them, and helping them in whatever way I LEAD YOU TO DO ! You will follow ME and what I want, and not disdain those who are in need, because they cramp your style of living ! I am calling many of you to raise up houses and places of REFUGE for those who in the days ahead will need safety and security, and who will be used for harvesting. Do NOT listen to man, or to your own heart, but listen to ME ! Listen to how and where, and what I want to do. I will provide all that is needed for those whose heart is willing to serve, and not just be served. The enemy is sowing seeds of doubt right now. He is trying to discredit many, to make them feel left out or confused about what I’ve told them. DO NOT LISTEN TO THE NAYSAYERS, who say you can’t do that ! THINK BIG My children. Do not think to LIMIT ME ! I AM NOT LIMITED. I CAN DO ANYTHING ! If I have told you something. WAR with that word ! Shout it from the rooftops and BELIEVE that I am ABLE to do what I tell you ! Just WAIT on ME for all the answers. I will not disappoint you. But you must not go ahead of Me, just wait on ME.” I’ve said that I love you with an EVERLASTING LOVE, and that My mercy endures FOREVER. Yet many think My mercy runs out. It never runs out for My own ! NEVER ! YOU are My favorites because you said YES to ME ! I will uphold all who are truly MINE. I LOVE YOU and I will not forsake My own children. I never CHANGE. My character remains consistent. MY LOVE NEVER RUNS OUT ! Toys for Tots thru Priscilla Van Sutphin June 4th, 2004 1:42 am Are you ready for awakening among your children ? Are you ready for an outpouring on the children ? I am asking because whenever it has come before, many adults assume the total role for building My church. But I am going to do a mighty work in and through your children. I brought them to you as a gift. They are My children too, and I am going to pour out some gifts that are unexpected. You will find your children suddenly catapulted into doing things you thought you could not imagine ! I will raise up some mighty Josiah’s, and Micah’s to confront even your own idolatry ! They will ask questions you don’t know how to answer. But I WILL ANSWER THEM ! I hear the cries of My lambs scattered throughout the nations and I hear them crying because of abuse, neglect and strife. Children themselves are My gift. They are precious to Me, and they should be most precious to you. But I have some hard things to say to you My people. Are you ready to listen ? Will you stop for a moment and see that the conditions in which SO many of My children live is horrific for any child ? Children being taught to hate. Children being taught to shoot guns. Children used as cover for adults in the midst of war. This disdain for their lives is the highest form of witchcraft to Me. I 48
    • CARE for My children. Teaching little children to do violence, is an abomination to Me ! Children are being shot to death in many of the nations of the earth. Children are hungry and starving in many places in the world. Who will care for them ? Who will shelter them from the abuses of this world ? WHO WILL STAND UP for Me against the wiles of the evil one ? …. GRACE and GLORY thru Priscilla Van Sutphin June 12, 2004 2:22 am www.upstreamca.org 2 Cor 3:18 AMP 1 Cor 15:10 KJV 1 Peter 4:10 KJV “I am in the process of imparting a new level of glory to my church, that will radiate out to the world and bring in the largest harvest the world has ever seen. So I am doing some finishing touches on My bride to make her ready. I am taking all the bondage, idolatry, fear, rejection, rebellion, and unbelief out of My children, that they might be able to receive all that I WANT to pour out in them. Do not think it a strange thing beloved if you are going through difficult times. I do know what I am doing My love. I now what it takes to change a generation. I know what it will take to change the younger generation. And many of you I am preparing to minister to them life and hope, resurrection from the dead and RESTORATION. So I am preparing you and exposing you to situations that provoke you to closer relationship with Me, that provoke you to learning more of Me and how to minister. Glory is heavy. It is like a weight. And like something that is heavy, it crushes. It will crush your pride. It will crush your rebellion, and it will crush all UNBELIEF in My church. Although it may look as if I have taken my hand off you, in fact I have placed it heavier upon you to bring forth the crushing I desire. I want to eradicate all that will resist ME, that is in your souls. I will do all that it takes to get you to the place of a HIGHER level of functioning in My Kingdom ! I will in no way leave anyone out who really is willing to GO for ME ! I am calling MANY sons and daughters in this hour to lay down their lives and to do MY WILL. If you are willing, I can work with that heart. But if not, then I will search for others who are willing. TRANSFORMATION is coming. TRANSFIGURATION is coming to restore My HOLINESS and MY POWER to these end times generations. Do not think I will leave out your sons and daughters either ! I have GREAT plans for them ! You will see your heart’s desire to have them walk in MY WAYS ! Continue to speak MY WORD over them, and watch how I will RESTORE them! Radical changes are coming My beloveds and I will explode in the marketplace in ways that will startle even the most casual and complacent observer ! Know that is will not 49
    • be by might nor by your power that this comes. It comes when I will. It comes how I WILL. It comes the way I WANT ! The FIRE of My LOVE will consume the most stubborn heart who is at least willing ! What I do will be way off the charts compared to what you have seen or are used to. So don’t be surprised when things start to happen that astound you. I am going to DAZZLE you My beloveds ! I am going to lay waste the enemy of your soul through all I do in and through you ! Worship ME and stay in My WORD. USE it to develop your spiritual immune system so that you can fight off all the strategies of the enemy. I am so in LOVE with YOU MY BRIDE ! I am enraptured with love for My own. I will make all the crooked places straight and level all the high hills. I will lead the blind by a way they have not known. And you will REJOICE in this hour as you see the mighty things Your God will bestow on you. I AM the ALL CONSUMING FIRE and I will burn up all the dross ! “ Song came to mind: I’m in the mood for love, simply because you’re near me, Darling for when you’re near me, I’m in the mood for love ! The Lord is singing love songs to His beloveds. He is wooing His Bride and courting her to greater intimacy with Him ! Vision of a Green Irridescent Bird thru Priscilla Van Sutphin June 14th, 2004 Ps 87:7 NKJV Both the singers and the players on instruments say, "All my springs are in you." Ps 87:7 AMP The singers as well as the players on instruments shall say, All my springs (my sources of life and joy) are in you [city of our God]. In the morning when awaking, I talked to the Lord, then received a vision of a green bird, seemed to be a bit larger than a parakeet and it had beautiful Green iridescent feathers. So in asking why He showed me this, I got the impression it had to do with what the Lord would call His “songbirds”. I sensed that He was about to do something new in bringing forth new prophetic songs. Ezek 40:44 NKJV Outside the inner gate were the chambers for the singers in the inner court, one facing south at the side of the northern gateway, and the other facing north at the side of the southern gateway. [ The singers and the priests lived in the inner court ! ] “ I have some new songs on My heart to sing to My beloveds. I have some new things to do in bringing salvation and healing to the lost. I am sending forth singers into the marketplace and raising them up in the media to sing songs that will glorify ME, and not just themselves. The heart of WORSHIP is to glorify the King. So I am taking those who will give all the glory to Me, and I am sending them out to WAR. I am 50
    • sending them into the marketplace to sing, and to be unashamed of what is in their heart for Me. I am taking dancers, and instrumentalists, and I am going to send you forth ahead of others to lead My armies into the streets of the cities. I am calling out for you. Listen to My instructions My beloveds, for when you sing as you are obedient to My leading, this time, there will be a new sound that rings forth. There will be a new thing that I will do in your midst. I am calling some of you to go to places you have never been. I will call some of you to go into bars and poolrooms, and places where you normally would not congregate, because I want you to call to those that need their hearts healed from abuse and torments of the enemy. Ps 68:25 NKJV The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; Among them were the maidens playing timbrels. Josh 6:20-21 NKJV So the people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets. And it happened when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat. Then the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city. It is not the well that have need of the Great Physician, but those who are broken and weak, and sick. I will send some of you into hospitals and retirement homes. I will send some of you to the streets of the nations to stir up worship. I will release new sounds in the earth. And the Holy Spirit will come at your beckoning and in the midst of song, and many will be healed and saved as you reach out in love to them. I will have “service” in new places and obscure dwelling places. I will descend upon coffee houses and restaurants where live music is played. Many of you have been awaiting this hour, and it is time now to go forth. Watch how I will give you FAVOR ! I will give many new ideas for how to demonstrate worship and their giftings in malls and outdoor parks. In those places, no one will say, play this, or play that, or only do this, or only do that. I WILL LEAD YOU, and I will bless you as you go. I will empower you as you listen and obey ! Come and let me show you My plan. There are many who will sing, but in the middle of what they are doing, I will come over them and they will get a spontaneous song to sing over someone in the crowd, and that person will be so affected, that they will turn their life over again to Me. People who have had hard hearts, will have changes of heart. I will give them a new heart through the wooing of My Spirit through you ! Some of you who prophesy, but are worshippers, will get songs to sing over people while you minister. Some of you will get songs to sing just talking to someone, and suddenly you get a song to share, and I will give utterance through you to give them a word of encouragement or comfort. And they will know that the God who they think sits only in the heavens, has come down to earth to touch them ! There will be times when I give you something to sing over someone, and it will be their favorite secular song, something that means something special to them, that they alone knew. And by 51
    • doing so, they will know that I KNOW them, and that I love them, and it is I singing over them. I will sing love songs, and I will sing silly songs to cause laughter and to lift heaviness off their hearts. I will sing in a variety of ways to a variety of people. Trust Me for how to minister in song, when you get the prompting of My Holy Spirit to do it. People love music, and for each person out there, there are a variety of ways to reach them, and I know them personally. I know their in’s and their out’s. I know where they have been, and what they have done. I know their brokenness and their lives inside and out. So look to ME to guide you in all that you do. And I have love songs to sing over you My beloveds. I am singing over My Bride and I am wanting to have that intimate time with you, like two people in love want time just to gaze at one another, or to talk. I want that with you My children ! I want that time to just talk to one another and to woo you to Myself. I want you to gaze into My eyes and see the love that I have for you, that it will change you and that it will change others who see it in you. Fix your eyes on ME that I may bless you and fill you with My love ! For I am in love with you My bride, and I am longing to hold you in My arms and caress you. I will comfort you, and I will wipe away your tears. Spontaneous Combustion & Rapid Conversion Aug 11th, 2004 thru Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org Rev 22:1-4 NKJV The River of Life And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. “I am planning a surprise attack. The enemy knows it’s coming, but he hasn’t a clue where. It will just IGNITE like WILDFIRE, and it will not be able to be put out. For the breath of the Lord will feed it. It will not happen where everyone thinks it will happen. It will not come as a surprise to those who have My heart. For they have been shown for years what is coming. It will spring forth, like sparks on a dry, dry land. All that is combustable will burn. All that is dry will be burned…and then filled with the RIVER of LIVING WATER. This river that will flow, will NOT dry out. It will never die. It will continue to flow till the Son of Man is seen in the air. This River brings Resurrection LIFE and will give life to all who desire it ! To those who do not desire this river of fire, it will come with judgment and 52
    • there will be consequence that is unbearable. My fire will consume all that cannot withstand the test. Everything the enemy has done to try to stop it will fail. All who are desirous for more of ME and waiting will RECEIVE. It will purify hearts and it will divide sheep from the goats. Those who oppose it will not be able to stop it. NOTHING can stop it ! NOTHING ! It will bring LIFE to all who desire LIFE instead of the death they have had to endure. I am a GOD OF ABUNDANT LIFE, and this LIFE will never die. When the apostles were touched at Pentacost, did any of them give up later? Did they not receive EVERYTHING they needed to do the work of the Kingdom ? Thomas was the only resister, but in the end, he did as I desired. All paid a price for what they received, but even that was not their own strength, but given them. My GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR YOU ! There is nothing I give you to do, that I don’t also give you the GRACE to do it. That is one parameter that tells you whether it is Me or not telling you ! If I ask you to fast, I give the grace to fast. If I ask you to leave everything, if your heart is willing, then I will give you the GRACE to do it ! MY GRACE is sufficient for you !” “Where ever this River flows, there will be LIFE. Where it is not wanted or allowed to flow, those places will become like swamps and stagnant water that does not bring any life, but rather death. Remember that when the enemy comes in like a flood, I will raise up a standard against him.” Isa 59:19 NKJV So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him. OT:5127 nuwc (noos); a primitive root; to flit, i.e. vanish away (subside, escape; causatively, chase, impel, deliver): KJV - abate, away, be displayed, (make to) flee (away, -ing), put to flight, hide, lift up a standard. “This will be something no man can take credit for. I am erasing the sibling rivalry out of My church. There will be a coming together for those who TRULY FOLLOW the LAMB! Those who come to salvation in this hour will not be heavy laden for long time. There will be a rapid conversion and deliverance from bondage and death because of the apostolic power I will pour into My bride! It will NOT take years and months for people to change. They will be changed in moments. MY LOVE that will flow like a river will transform them as it will transform YOU and there will be such change it wreaks to the body, that all will be unrecognizable compared to before it flows down from the throne. There will be SIGNS and WONDERS, and some of them will be most spectacular! I am putting on a light show that none will forget! My NAME will be lifted high. And many who were SO skeptical and antagonistic will repent and be saved most quickly ! There will be swift judgment for those who touch My bride! I AM YOUR ROCK OF 53
    • DEFENSE. DO NOT FIGHT FOR YOURSELF, BUT RECOGNIZE THAT I AM WITH YOU. AND ALL THAT YOU DO WILL BE DONE IN LOVE FROM THIS TIME OF EXPLOSION ON. You will find yourself to be TRULY a new creation in Christ! And all those you touch will have this same experience in ME. Many will be shocked into submission, who thought their own ideas were much more weighty and important. I will destroy the confidence of the wicked and proud. And they will know there is a GOD in heaven and on earth and there will be NO excuse for blatant rebellion, save a reprobate heart.” “ Nothing that has been can compare with what I am about to do. DO NOT look to the former ways…but only seek MY WAY! My ways are higher than your ways. YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU and DESIRE that YOU be fully MINE! I am yours, and you are Mine, My beloveds. Don’t let the enemy think he can disqualify you from anything I have planned. Keep your eyes on ME! I will uphold you with My righteous right hand! “ Origins and Times are in My Hands August 26th, 2004 thru Priscilla van Sutphin – www.upstreamca.org “Waves and waves of My presence are coming to you My beloveds. Waves and waves of My Holy FIRE will burn away all that cannot withstand the test. Waves and waves of My love will invade the church and drive out all that opposes Me wi thin you. I AM a God of mercy and kindness but I am also a God of JUSTICE and FAITHFULNESS, and I AM HOLY. I said “Be holy as I am holy !” and I will not forsake My WORD. Perilous times have ensued. Guard your hearts and come to ME. I have a plan that leads to LIFE. Do not strive to figure things out as much as to depend on Me daily and hourly for what I want. YOU do NOT KNOW the hour of captivity, nor the hour of deliverance, for it is in MY HANDS. You do not know the time of My coming, nor the time of My outpouring, but know that I am close at hand. I see the conditions of the world and I am not blind to the conditions of My church. I am separating and I am binding. I am delivering and I am healing. I am testing and I am purifying. I am empowering and I am commissioning. I am about to enter My church in a new wave of glory and I will have a purified bride when I am done. I will give you the desires of your heart that are in conjunction with My own desires for you ! No one will be left behind. What kind of Father would leave his child behind on the platform as the train is taking off? Mercilessness is not MY CHARACTER. But it is the character of the religious spirit.

I correct My children and discipline them that they may develop MY character - Those that will let me that is, to have hold of their lives. Your lives are NOT your own ! They are bought and paid for with the BLOOD of MY SON !” Phil 2:5-8 AMP “Since He gave up His rights as KING of the Universe and lowered Himself to be a servant and die for you, can you oh man humble yourselves to be like HIM, - if you want to live in His glory and majesty ? Many of you seek My power and My glory. But you have not considered what My Son said to His own disciples. “ Can you drink the cup I drink ?” Are you willing My beloveds? Are you willing to drink the cup He drank? Are you willing to LAY DOWN your life and take up the cross?” “I assure you that as you lay down your life, HIS LIFE will burn inside you and you will receive all that is needed to endure the days ahead. For this time will tests the hearts of men and women, boys and girls severely. With your eyes you will behold many difficult and heinous things. So I am urging you to come, to lay down your life and to lay if finally at the cross - ALL OF YOU. Not just part of you. I have WORK for you to do. Are you willing to serve instead of being served ? Are you willing to suffer for My sake ? Are you willing to do what it takes to share in My glory ? Then tell Me My beloveds and I will direct your paths and I will lead you in paths of righteousness and glory. I will lead you with the pillar of fire by night and the cloud by day. I am lighting sparks of FIRE in many places that formerly have been strongholds of darkness. I will make a spectacle of the enemy and I will use you, if you will do My will. I am catalyzing many flames that will spread all over the nations. The world will be ABLAZE with the FIRE OF MY LOVE ! THERE IS NO MORE TIME TO HESITATE MY LOVE. COME !

Do you believe in transformation of your soul ? Do you believe that I am still working in those you see every day that have not committed their lives to Me yet ? Do you realize that unbelief alters your prayer life ? 55
    • When you don’t believe I’ll do anything, then you don’ t pray. For then you think, what’s the use, He won’t do anything anyhow….or you’ll be led to believe that the person can’t change. That is because the mind is always searching for answers, and explanations, for understanding. My Spirit is the Source of all understanding and Wisdom that you need. If you will bring those persons to ME and lay your concerns for them down at My feet, then I can show you how to pray. I can show you the effectual way to pray. I can show you what to fast. And I promise you that if you pray, I will DO something. When you don‘t see it right away, doesn’t mean I am not working behind the scenes and changing things. You know not the thoughts of man like I do. So just trust Me, that I am transforming that one you have prayed for and begin THANKING ME for the work I am doing on their behalf. Demonstrate your FAITH by thanking Me for that thing you’ve asked for. For I AM working and I am changing, and I am answering your prayers. If you will have patience, then you will see the fruit of those prayers. It says in My Word, that if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation. In the days ahead that will really mean for you total TRANSFORMATION. For I am escalating again My work in the lost as you pray for them. And you will see many changes and transformations that will astound the average person. Many people even in My church have a far greater faith in their unbelief than in MY ability to transform lives ! What I am about to do in the lives of the youth will totally astound the world. It will astound the church, and it will CHANGE THE CHURCH. For they are a RADICAL generation. They will be RADICALLY transformed to reflect My glory and they will RADICALLY CONFRONT the established church with any hypocrisy. So guard your attitudes of heart My church ! For this generation will confront all that is pretense and a lie. They will want UNDERSTANDING for all that is in the Word. And they will want an accounting for all that is not seen done in My church. This will lead to difficult confrontations. So I am telling you to take up a mantle of humility and TRUTH. Do not rear your back in pride when you are confronted with your own lies and pretense. Humble yourself and you will be saved. For if you only love those who love you, then how are you any better than the Pharisees ? Take My yoke upon you and learn of ME, for I am HUMBLE and lowly of heart. I will destroy all TRADITIONS of MEN that are interfering with My ruling within My church. And I will destroy all that opposes My will. It is a new day, and a time to look to Me for all you need. There is a way that seems right unto a man but it’s way leads to death. Look to ME for how to do things and I will give the wisdom and understanding you need. Prepare for Union 9/10/04 thru Priscilla van Sutphin – www.upstreamca.org How much do you want of My Spirit ? How much do you want My presence ? 56
    • Why do you want more of My power ? Why do you seek Me ? I was transfigured before enduring the cross. Are you now willing to take up your crosses ? Are you willing to go to the next level of glory ? He who suffers with Me, shall share in My glory. I tell you now, because you have asked, indeed you will suffer loss, but in that loss will come GAIN. For I will indeed redeem you from the fires of affliction, persecution and suffering to be lights in a world filled with darkness. You will be replenished with all you NEED to do the work of the kingdom. The spoils of the wicked will be given to those who are trustworthy. I will see to it that you who fear My name will have many great escapes from the fangs of the beast. But I tell you now to prepare your hearts for UNION with Me. Prepare for the hurricane of My love to bring you into the eye of My peace. In ME is LIFE, and life more abundant. So many are looking for greater deeds, greater missions, greater fame and name, greater ministry. Ministry has become an idol to many. You don’t realize that to whom much is given, much is required. Great ministry is DOING THE WILL OF THE FATHER. It is NOT about having your name in lights. Having your name in lights will cost you in the days ahead. Many will be glad for your years of hiddenness. For the nameless and faceless will be able to do great exploits because they are unknown and because they have died to having the glory for themselves. I am purging all selfish ambition. Many love to have their names seen but don’t realize the risk. It’s not inherently bad to have your name in lights. It’s just that when you look to that, to receive approval from man, then you are barking up the wrong tree, and are into idolatry to self. And like a dog, those who are in selfish ambition, will be beaten down…not by ME, but by those who hate Me, will the judgment come ! I was known because of My miracles and teaching. Many will be known because of being like me, but they will not have lifted themselves up. They will lift ME up ! And for that, they will share in My glory and share my love with the world. And they will dwell in the secret place and be hidden by me, till their commission is fulfilled. Do not seek to be known. Seek to make Me known, and you will be known where it counts ! Be faithful in caring for the children I have given you, and I will extend your tent pegs. If you are faithful in little, I will give you more. DISCIPLE My lambs ! Disciple My sheep ! Take up your cross and walk forward to the greatest hour the earth has ever seen. The hosts of heaven will rejoice in all I do. They have been waiting to see this hour. REJOICE for Your LORD draws nigh ! Ask and you shall receive, knock and the door will be opened. Ask for more faith. Ask for more love. Ask for more patience and ask Me for souls and I will give them ! Ask for miracles, and be filled with FAITH ! The Heart of the Matter Sept 21, 2004 11:11 pm thru Priscilla Van Sutphin 57
    • www.upstreamca.org “Juxtapositioning is going on in My Kingdom in many areas. I am putting those together who will work together for My glory. I have alignments that are important to these times, that will bring in much harvesting, cleaning of that harvest, and training for that harvest. It is important that you listen for the still small voice to lead you into alignment with only those I tell you to ! I sent the apostles out two by two. There was purpose in that ! Look now at what I will do to balance out those in My Kingdom that are alone ! For some, they will be married to those they go with, and for others, they will have friends from other nations, and youth that will go with them, to demonstrate My love and unity of the brethren. The apostles went in two’s, but for many of you, I will send you in fours, and larger groups and more diverse to shake cities, and to shake nations. I am mixing and I am fixing, to make teams that will have diverse gifts and authority in prayer to dispel the darkness ! Harvest is on My heart ! That is why I am working on you to take out all that is not of Me, and to get you to be still and listen and receive the love that will break the yoke over others. I want a pure and spotless Bride, and I will make her so ! I will continue to heal and deliver, to purge and to test until you learn to work together more amiably and without competition, and sibling rivalry. I am breaking down walls of division. I am breaking down walls of intimidation and I am breaking down walls of separation. I WILL make My Bride HOLY ! Steadily and surely, I have purposed to complete this work, and NOTHING can stop it ! I will send forth the peacemakers and they will bring forth truth that will build unity through INTIMACY with ME. Intimacy with ME is the CURE for what is wrong with the church. If you don’t KNOW ME, and spend time with ME, and neglect or ignore ME, then how can you possibly get through the tribulation that is coming ? I will fulfill the prayer of My Son to make you ONE as We are one ! I WILL RESTORE the true sheep of My pastures. Matt 7:22-23 NKJV Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' 23 And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!' There is a wind blowing that will bring the KINGDOM upon you. This wind is not the kind you can harness or control. THIS Wind will bring power as you’ve not seen before. This GLORY will not be able to be “managed” or “limited”. This is MY GLORY, and it will go forth and through whomever I WILL. If you try to oppose it, you will be opposed by ME. FOR IT IS I WHO am in it! I AM the Wind that is coming. I WILL empower My bride to overcome, and to do the works of the KINGDOM, and for the KINGDOM, and by MY LEADING. This Wind is not something you can “TAME”. The Wind blows where it will! See John 3:8 NKJV, Deut 33:26 NKJV My heart is to save nations and peoples of the earth, and to snatch them from the hand of the enemy. My heart is to see them delivered and healed, so they can also 58
    • sit at the banqueting table with Me. So many are quick to want to get out of this world, when I am wanting you to bring in this end times HARVEST of souls. I will not take anyone away until My will is fulfilled in the earth. Set YOUR eyes on ME, and your heart to know My heart, and I will give you the nations as an inheritance. Be faithful in little, and I will give you much ! But I have the best plan for your life that you could imagine.

Confirming dream by Lanna Perry: I was asleep and I had this dream. I dreamt that I was in like a third world place, and it was so poor, and it was just so 'low' and awful. Anyways, I then saw there were children everywhere, and they were dark skinned children so maybe I was in Africa or something... But they were in cages, and my heart was screaming and something in the core of me was screaming I needed to get them out. I can't remember HOW I helped them, but I helped them in some way, yet I don't remember if they actually got out of the cages or not. I remember something in the core of me screaming I needed to get them out. This gut wrenching something...that was absolutely taking over me so much I wanted to double over and scream. The next thing I know, I reach up and see a gorilla looking at me, and I hold the hand of the gorilla. Yet some of the kids looked like baby gorilla's. That was it. Then I tell people in my dream out what had happened and I just couldn't stop crying. I have now woken up with this gut wrenching tug in the core of me, I am screaming inside to get them out. Something is happening to me, and I don't know what it is. 59
    • Enraptured Sept 25th, 2004 Priscilla Van Sutphin – www.upstreamca.org Ps 108:4-6 NIV For great is your love, higher than the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. 5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, and let your glory be over all the earth. 6 Save us and help us with your right hand, that those you love may be delivered. “I your heavenly Father am bringing to you a most precious gift. I am serious about the desire to be ONE with you. There will be UNION with My Son, and a glory you have never known. So stay in the place My children of intimacy. Don’t neglect your time with ME. For My heart burns within Me to make this transition in you. I am leading you into paths of righteousness for My name’s sake. I will slay the enemy’s chains over you and you will go forth when I send you in great glory and You WILL know My love for you as never before. You think you know it now. But what you know is miniscule compared to the greatness of the love I want you to know. I want you to know more of My grace, and My wisdom. So I have told you to put on listening ears, and to focus on My Word as I long to reveal many secrets that are in it. Even if you don’t feel like it, will you come to Me and just let me touch you. Let me fill you with My fire – the fire of MY LOVE for you ? I am jealous for you ! I will NOT allow the enemy to delude and to deceive you so long as you stay away from pride and stay close to ME. There is much deception going forth in the world. Humanism has grown, witchcraft has grown. The hearts of men seek their own will, and not mine. But I am turning around the things that would not allow MY WORD to go forth in great power. I will give you wings to fly with Me, and you will never be alone. You will hear My voice more clearly. And those who haven’t heard will hear for the first time. But MY WILL has to become more important than your own will. There is a dying I am bringing you to. Death to self is a painful process I know. But My grace will get you there if you desire it ! I will bring all you love into the place of making a decision – “an informed decision”. They will be without excuse, believe Me, I will make it clear to them Who I AM. Pray for your loved ones with CONFIDENCE that MY ability to save and deliver and heal is greater than the enemy’s to destroy and deceive. Pray for the lost. Pray, Pray, Pray and worship ME in the beauty of holiness for I am your Everlasting Father, and I will hide you in the shelter of My arms, if you will be come to Me. I love you so much My beloveds, and you will understand the depth, and height, the width and length of that love soon. As you become filled with the knowledge of that love, there will be more and more GLORY imparted to you. You will soar on eagle’s wings into places you’ve not seen before. Higher and higher.” [ song by Vern Jackson about going higher than I’ve ever been came to mind] 60
    • Internal Combustion Sept 30th, 2004 via Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org The Lord said, “internal combustion” so I looked that up…. “internal-combustion engine, one in which combustion of the fuel takes place in a confined space, producing expanding gases that are used directly to provide mechanical power. Such engines are classified as reciprocating or rotary, spark ignition or compression ignition, and two-stroke or four-stroke; the most familiar combination, used from automobiles to lawn mowers, is the reciprocating, spark-ignited, four-stroke gasoline engine. Other types of internal-combustion engines include the reaction engine (see jet propulsion, rocket), and the gas turbine. Engines are rated by their maximum horsepower, which is usually reached a little below the speed at which undue mechanical stresses are developed.” “In a gasoline engine, a mixture of gasoline and air is sprayed into a cylinder. This is compressed by a piston and at optimal point in the compression stroke, a spark plug creates an electrical spark that ignites the fuel. The combustion of the fuel results in the generation of heat, and the hot gases that are in the cylinder are then at a higher pressure than the fuel-air mixture and so drive the piston back down. These combustion gases are vented and the fuel-air mixture reintroduced to run a second stroke. The outward linear motion of the piston is ordinarily harnessed by a crankshaft to produce circular motion. Valves control the intake of air-fuel mixture and allow exhaust gases to exit at the appropriate times. A critically important portion of any internal-combustion engine is its ignition system, which controls the timing of the burning of the fuel mixture. If this burn begins either too early or too late the engine performance will be reduced, sometimes seriously, and in extreme cases can even damage the engine.” Then the Lord spoke… “Every engine needs a catalyst. My Spirit is supposed to be the catalyst for any and every movement in the ministry of My church. My Spirit is the One Who ignites the fire of revival. So HE motivates men to pray. HE motivates men to worship and to repent. He motivates men to reach out beyond their circumstances to reach others for the Kingdom. Apart from ME, you can do NOTHING. You may think you pray or worship on your own. But it is My Spirit working in you to do His bidding. I AM the Author, and the FINISHER of your FAITH. It is I Who am leading you into paths of righteousness for MY NAME’s sake ! It is I Who gives you health, and wealth, life and breath. It is I Who enables you to work or to rest, to have fun and enjoy life as well. Life is a celebration. It is a celebration of your life in Me. You celebrate baby’s arrivals, and weddings, birthdays and holidays. Why do you do this ? Because LIFE is valuable to you. Relationships are valuable to you as I created human beings to be relational. 61
    • In order for a car to work, it must have fuel. You need that fuel everyday. Without it, your car won’t work. It is the same for a life or a ministry. You must have the fuel which is the POWER of My Spirit working in you, My love, My grace and ability in order for you to be sustained. Many ministers run out of fuel because like someone who forgets on a long trip to stop to get gas, gets stuck, so have many of My own forgotten to fuel up with ME. So you run out of gas. NO POWER with NO GAS. In order to move and have your being in ME, you must spend time with ME. In My presence you receive what you need. When you run out of gas in the natural what must you do ? Walk on your own to get the gas yes ? Or call for help. So it’s not wise to not pay attention to how much gas is in your car. If you run out…you cannot move it anywhere. The car’s ignition is also important. NO ignition - no movement – no spark. I want to spark many fires. I want to make you My living FLAMES OF FIRE. So you can do all that is ahead to do. With the proper vision and direction from ME, then you are able to move ahead in your day with what is on My agenda. Of course there are always the normal activities of daily living to be concerned with. But I told you that if you would SEEK FIRST the Kingdom of God and My righteousness, then all these things you need will be provided for you. I would give you the means, the direction, the wisdom and knowledge, and understanding you need. REMAIN IN ME, and I will remain in you. I am about to light some fires that will burn for eternity in ME. The fire of My presence will burn away all that has opposed you and in order for you to be consistent in running, you will need to be empty of anything that would clog up the constant flow of My fire. There will be times of busyness in ME, but also times to refuel and receive…so that you can again be poured out. Just as Paul had times of rest, and reflection between missionary journeys, I will give you all times of rest in Me to refresh yourselves. For this Harvest is not going to be like any other. There will be a powerful demand on your time. And you must be WISE enough to know when to get refueled, so that you can keep going to the next assignment. Times of rest and reflection always bring new perspective…time to think about what has been and what is to be. Learn to take the time now, so that it becomes a habit, and that you never go forth without being filled up with ME. I want you to be a living conduit of My GRACE and Mercy. I love you My beloveds and you will soon know the extent of that love more than you’ve ever known.” [ I’ve included some things not directly on glory, but that help edify and give direction and wisdom for the hour we are in ] CHEOPS Oct 7th, 2004 via Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org 62
    • In early August I was praying with a friend and I got the word CHEOPS loud and clear. I have asked the Lord about it, but had not yet received anything until tonight as I was looking in the files for something else and reread my note about it…I think I got some insight . I felt the Lord dropped in my understanding that there is to be a resurrection of the spirit of PHAROAH....like in Moses' time where he killed all the male infants ? And the cruelty that existed in that time as well with him, of subservience and slavery/abuse and murder. So I asked the Lord for a word about this to clarify. “There will be a discovery of this ancient mummy and as this mummy is resurrected, around this time, will also come forth the spirit of PHAROAH; to execute with malice, war on the saints. It will be a sign to you. This spirit will indwell a man of sin who will bring the wrath of Satan in greater proportions to earth than has ever been seen. He will speak swelling words of deceit like no other. Eventually he will be indwelt by Satan himself. Nothing you have heard of, or seen photos of, will compare to what this evil will perpetrate against My people. Men’s hearts will fill with fear, and many will fall away from devotion to ME. Just as in Gideon’s time, many were disqualified from serving due to FEAR, so it will be in this hour. Many will not be healed enough to endure the days that are coming. But for those who love ME more than they fear man, there will be a tremendous blessing in ministry to this fallen world. Do not entertain fear My beloveds for perfect LOVE casts down all fear. I HAVE NOT GIVEN YOU A SPIRIT OF FEAR. The fear of death must be overcome to have AUTHORITY over death ! I will not allow anything to take you out until you have fulfilled your destiny in ME. So many are looking to be taken away rather than endure any form of suffering, while in other parts of the world MY PEOPLE suffer violently ! But before this spirit comes, will I fill the earth with MY GLORY and there will be world wide revival that will shake kingdoms. But know that this revival will come at a great cost. WORSHIP WARRIORS ARISE and take HOLD OF THE PROMISES OF YOUR LORD ! Sing , dance, and destroy the ramparts of the enemy over cities, and states and provinces, over nations and kingdoms ! I am calling together MY MIGHTY ARMY and I am calling you to be ONE all over the world. You will go in groups to cities and nations and those cities will be SHAKEN. You will know them by their FRUITS I said. REMEMBER to rely on MY WORD, and not the opinions of man. For this one comes with persuasive words of speech and deceit that is unimaginable, to sway many into hell. This is a time of WAR and TUMULT in the heavenlies, but MY PEOPLE will do GREAT EXPLOITS. It is not a time of peace, though they will say, “PEACE, PEACE,” when there is only the semblance of peace ! Then sudden DESTRUCTION will come as the Destroyer is loosed upon the earth. CLING TO ME My beloveds for I LOVE YOU with an EVERLASTING LOVE that will never fail. Can you hear the sound of drums ? Can you hear the sound of cadence ? 63
    • TEACH THE CHILDREN TO WORSHIP and how to do the works of the kingdom NOW. DO NOT WAIT till they are adults to expect them to function as Christians. TRAIN THEM UP in the ways of the LORD and expect great things, for they will do mighty things in My name! Prepare them to overcome evil with GOOD. Set an example! There will be a youth revolution and a move among young adults unparalleled since the beginning of time. Be FILLED WITH EXPECTATION AS YOUR LORD DRAWS NIGH TO YOU ! WORSHIP IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS ! WORSHIP IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH. BE UNASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE ! Shout to the mountains with GRACE, GRACE, GRACE ! KNOW the power of your ADONAI ! Phil 4:5 AMP Let all men know and perceive and recognize your unselfishness (your considerateness, your forbearing spirit). The Lord is near [He is coming soon]. Do not waste time only telling others of MY LOVE. THEY MUST KNOW MY LOVE. DEMONSTRATE IT TO THEM. Don’t just speak of love, but let them know how precious they are to Me by your actions towards each other and towards them! Move forward AS I LEAD YOU! RELY ON ME and do not presume or assume anything. I AM WITH YOU. I AM EMMANUEL, YOUR GOD WHO IS WITH YOU !” { Cheops is the Greek name for Khufu... } Erasing Indebtedness Oct 10th, 2004 Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org I am coming to pour out mercy and to erase any indebtedness. I speak not of debt that is financial but debt that is sin based. I am coming to pour out My glory and in that pouring out there will be great reversals in your life that will bring My RESURRECTION LIFE to shine through you. My Light is the light of all men. I AM the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. I will be preeminent in your life that all men will be drawn to Me through you. I have promised you many times that I will come and bring a great reversal, so believe that you may receive. The one who is looking forward to company, will prepare their house and sweep it clean and make sure all is ready. They will prepare food and also put on fresh clothes so as to make a good impression on their company. I have been asking you to prepare ME an habitation, that I might come in and have union and communion with you. I am the LIGHT. And you will shine like the stars in the heavens. You are my bright and shining stars. I am going to pour into you such glory and you will wonder at the change in your own heart and the change will bring you much closer to ME. You will see as I see and hear as I hear, and feel as I feel. I AM the All-Consuming FIRE and I will burn away all that cannot withstand the test, that you may be light in the darkness to all around you ! Righteousness and justice are the foundation of My throne. Goodness and mercy will follow you all the days of your life and you will dwell in the house of the Lord forever if you will abide in ME. Come and sup with Me. Come and let us reason together about the things that are on your heart for I am a God close at hand and not afar off. Is My hand too short to save? Indeed I am WITH YOU. I am Emmanuel. So believe that I am with you. Do not act as if I have gone somewhere. I am always 64
    • with you, now and forever. Run into My arms of LOVE and allow ME to be in control. I will do all you need for me to do if you will cast ALL your cares upon ME. For I care FOR you. Release from Bondages Oct 12, 2004 Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org “The Lord is gracious and merciful in all that He does. The Lord is the wise and wonderful Counselor to all who call upon Him in truth and willingness to change. He is merciful to those who do not deserve mercy. He is kind to the ungrateful. He is merciful to all who will come to Him. He is looking for those who will in this judgment on the wicked, be merciful and kind when they start looking for answers. He is not wanting a message of hate and judgment to go forth from the lips of His own, but a message of LOVE and KINDNESS – a message of HOPE and GRACE. If you who are called by His name, cannot even be gracious and forgiving to each other, then how will you demonstrate to those who don’t know of His love a heart of mercy and kindness ? If you cannot demonstrate a heart of forgiveness to your own family who have wronged you, and show impatience to those who you are supposed to love, then how will you manage under the stress of the times to come to show patience to those I am drawing to you ? The only way you will be enabled to do this is through ME, and through spending time in MY PRESENCE. So I am calling out to you a warning TRUMPET ! COME, and dwell in MY PRESENCE and ask for gold refined in the fire ! ASK for ME to heal and to impart LOVE that you can show it to others and even to yourself. For some of you haven’t even forgiven yourselves for things that I have long forgiven you for. It is only PRIDE that keeps you from the fullness of My GRACE and MERCY. For if you refuse to receive what I give, it is like you are saying…” NO! You can’t forgive me, I’m too bad! “ – as if you know more than I know and as if you stubbornly adhere to your own opinion of you over MINE! It is time to ACCEPT MY GRACE. I AM FOR YOU AND NOT AGAINST YOU. I feel this way about each and every believer. I know the one who has been unable to forgive themselves because of shame. So I AM COMING and I WILL REMOVE the thorns in the flesh that keep you from the fullness of My glory, for the one who really knows MY LOVE, will be filled with MY GLORY. And the one who ASKS shall RECEIVE. ASK and you shall receive, as long as your heart longs for purity and wholeness…you will receive it as I come and cleanse my threshing floors ! I am about to drive out all BONDAGE to the things of this world, and to the harsh taskmaster of traditions and pharisaism. I WILL have a pure and holy Bride and you will know the tenderness of MY HEART towards you as never before. The lack of truth and love in My church will be eradicated. Many of those caught up in false religion and cults will be saved and whole denominations that have taught wrongly will be redeemed from the curse of the law. I am not going to leave things the way they 65
    • are. But I will again enter My temples and I will drive out the money changers and those who would keep MY children in BONDAGE.” “ I need to bring this change because otherwise those who come in the harvest will be brought to the same bondages they have been released from! I cannot bring in a harvest of souls to the church as it is. I MUST BRING JUDGMENT to the house of the LORD BEFORE HARVESTING COMES. I am about to catapult MANY into great change. THAT is why you have been being purged, and tested, tempted and tormented. You are under refinement for the final HARVEST of all time. YOU CANNOT STEAL MY GLORY ! I will NOT have a church that takes the glory for themselves any longer ! I WILL CLEANSE IT and HEAL IT. Those who resist will fall on the side of apostasy and be given over to delusion. But for those whose hearts are humbly seeking ME and MY will despite inability to be whole as yet…YOU WILL SEE MY GLORY ! And YOU will be CHANGED BY IT. I AM THE ALL CONSUMING FIRE ! And I will remove bondages of all kinds. Increase your expectations. INCREASE YOUR VISION OF HOW BIG I AM and how powerful is the blood of the LAMB ! Know that things you thought could not happen WILL HAPPEN with the FAITH I am developing in you. Many will be SHOCKED into submission by the things I do. INCREASE FAITH BY STAYING IN THE WORD and STANDING ON THE WORD. USE it as a two edged sword to speak to the powers of darkness ! Your LORD is at hand ! ” RESUSCITATING the BRIDE DREAM Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org I had a very vivid dream this morning. In the dream I am beholding a woman in ICU with tubes going in everywhere...parenteral nutrition, ventilator, IV's causing them to be resuscitated and the woman is scared as her IV comes undone. So I pick up an IV to restart it and I am looking at this huge vein in her hand and she wants it reinserted in the same place it was, so I aim it in, and secure it with this transparent material they use now, and the one that had come was the IV with BLOOD in it. [ I used to be an NICU nurse specialist ] Interpretation: The Woman is the church, and she is being ministered to and resuscitated and given all kinds of nourishment and reviving to her body because she has been dying and weak. She is in the process of being healed...and has lost her connection to the BLOOD of Jesus [and the CROSS implied]. Application - the prophets/apostles need to bring back to the body the foundation of the CROSS and the power of His blood SNOW, ICE & GLORY Oct. 27th, 2004 Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org 66
    • It is snowing in the mountains of Southern California, and it has snowed SO hard that ski season is opened early this year. In fact on the news locals said, they've not ever seen it do this before Halloween ! Praise the Lord ! Years ago I had a dream that I was climbing this hill in the snowy weather...and it was like a scene in Iowa, where the fields go on forever...but all was covered in snow and ice, and I was slipping and climbing, and suddenly while near the top, of this icy hill, I saw a HUGE - about 30 ft. Jesus with a robe of many colors sweep into this huge old white house. [ house being the church - robe of many colors representing the apostolic ! ] As I was going through my journal...I came across this word and felt the Lord wanted me to publish it now for your encouragement. Remember I had a word entitled, "October Surprise, and November Lies" ? Something is up...also the 7 mourning doves are still on my patio... Dec 23rd, 2003_personal All glory and honor and power belongs to Me. I AM coming with such force that it will sweep people most literally off their feet in some cases. They won’t know what happened to them! Just like Gabe and Kevin got apprehended, it will come. IT WILL come with a gale force wind of My Spirit and NOTHING will be able to stop it. People who have been resistant will melt. The stony hearts will be softened if they do not resist Me. They dare not speak against those I pour it out on. For I am zealous for a Bride that is single eyed in their love for ME and their service to MY KINGDOM. You have not seen the half of what I have for those called according to My purposes. I am so delighted to be able to finally pour out My Spirit in this way. I have longed to capture the nations and to tear down the kingdoms of despotisms and hatred. All heaven is on RED alert! They are excited to see what is about to happen in the perfecting of the Bride and the tsunami of souls that will come into this harvest. Mighty angels have been loosed to prepare and help in the harvest. Throngs of people will be captivated by the things I do in My Beloveds. I am sweeping through the nations with a giant sickle, and the healing and miracles will increase to such an extent as to cause pandemonium. People will be frightened by some of the things I do. THAT is why I have prepared, and prepared, and humbled your hearts, that you might be able to do what I WANT, without it going to your head and the pride of your heart, as in past generations. The nations are going through groanings and birthing pains and I will send you to many, many nations to prepare the hearts of My people for ME. There is so much death and deception that must be overcome. I want MY SPIRIT poured out freely, without hindrance. That is the other reason. How can I pour it out through unclean vessels, who have no idea the depth of My love? I will send you out in teams that you won’t be alone, just as I sent apostolic teams in the early days of the birth of My church, I will do it again and they will be ONE in the Spirit, that NOTHING can stop what I do. 67
    • Multicultural, multiethnic, multiracial teams will go forth to proclaim MY idea of unity and love, hope and peace to the nations. You will demonstrate what it is to get along, that others might take notice. Many people from different churches, and broken backgrounds will go to declare the TRUTH of MY LOVE and DEMONSTRATE MY POWER and LOVE to the whole of mankind. I WILL HAVE A HOLY BRIDE. As the Bride comes forth, there will be as a sign, apostolic marriages that will signal that I am becoming ONE with My Bride. You can’t imagine how much I love you, for I know the depths also of what YOU are capable of. I have ordered it and I will bring everything into place in it’s time. Worship Me with abandonment…for I am close at hand ! [I shook hard in the spirit at this last statement] Granting Favor Nov 18th, 2004 Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org Acts 2:46-47 NKJV Acts 7:9-10 NKJV John 1:17 NKJV “My hand is mighty to save. My ways are higher than your ways. And my delays are not nays but they are pathways to right-standing and perseverance. I am creating some divine reversals in the area of GRACE and that means a turn around in FAVOR for My beloveds for a time so that the KINGDOM may be established in the hearts of men. I am giving out great GRACE in this hour, great FAVOR to be and do all I want you to be and do. I will bless you to be a blessing. Do not think I’m doing it to make you look good however. I’m doing it to make MY GOODNESS KNOWN TO ALL MEN. If I will be lifted up, I will draw all men unto Myself. Be cautious beloveds not to give in to pride, vanity and arrogance. Giving you favor is not to be taken for granted, but it will show you My great love for you. Be careful not to give in to selfish ambition or pride in what I’ve done for you, looking at others with disdain or in a superior manner. I’ve said to think of others MORE highly than yourselves and not to covet another’s blessings or gifts. Learn to be content with the things that you have also, and to not depend on riches to pursue the Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is not gained through finances, though finances help in a practical manner. FREELY GIVE if you want to receive in this hour. For as you give it will be measured out to you. If you have sown freely from a pure heart, then you can expect great rewards in this hour. If you have been stingy and resentful in your giving. Then you will also reap in like kind. So learn to be generous like I AM. Isa 32:8 NKJV Do not underestimate the talents and favor of others. Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought to. Don’t look at the imperfections in others and think that that weakness has anything to do with lack of My ability to use them. I will use whomever I WILL. I will do whatever I wish and those who are weak, can be assured that I will then be strong for them. For if you are strong, then the enemy will tempt you to think it is because of 68
    • your great ability that you succeed, or that because of your own wisdom that you have power. But in your weakness, I can be strong, and manifest My glory to show that it is in ME alone, that you can do anything at all. It is because of My LOVE for you, and not because you are so special and great, that I do this marvelous work that lies ahead. I am pouring out GREAT GRACE upon My children who love Me and cherish Me, while the world languishes after worldly idols and mammon, My own will be kept in the shadow of My wings because of their choice to believe in Me wholeheartedly. Nothing will be withheld from those who love Me. I am grace and I am mercy and My love endures forever. I will take you through the fire and you will not be burned. I will take you through the waters, and though they mount up over your heads, you will not drown. For I will be with you until the end of all time. Nothing will separate Me from you – I am Your Beloved Father, and I will watch over My own. Stay close to My chest and listen for the beat of My heart. Beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing who smile while they seek to devour you and your sustenance, pretending to be what they are not. Keep in the WORD to keep up your discernment. Listen closely to the still small voice of My heartbeat. Quiet yourself and listen and you will hear My voice. Stay your mind on Me and I will keep you in perfect peace. And I will direct your path.” Suddenlies Nov. 27th , 2004 thru Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org Num 16:41-43 NKJV “ I am escalating things in the world and there will be many suddenlies for many of you. Suddenly means that it is not something you can expect, but that suddenly it will just happen. I love surprises don’t you ? And I have many surprises for My children. I have a whole storehouse of gifts waiting to be given out. I am a good Father Who gives good gifts to His children, am I not ? Remember how as a child you anticipated what you might get for Christmas ? That is how I want you to be – eager for the changes Your heavenly Father will bring ! I want you to EXPECT great changes and blessings commensurate with those. I’m not saying there won’t be a cost, but for many that cost has been paid, and you are just awaiting My timing. That timing is soon My beloveds so ready yourself for what is to happen soon. I also am eager to pour them out on you. But I see the beginning from the end. I see all the factors that you don’t see. So My timing is always perfect. It is hard as humans to wait, but your waiting produces perseverance . Persevere: to persist in a state, enterprise, or undertaking in spite of counterinfluences, opposition, or discouragement. I am longing for union with you more than you are longing for it My beloveds. I am here, and see the growth of wickedness every day in the earth, but I also see those who have persevered under great pressures and suffering and I am pleased with 69
    • those who are My own. I am please when you persevere in believing in Me despite all the unbelief, mocking and skepticism around you. I am pleased when you think of others and not just yourself. I am pleased when you continue to give to the poor, despite the pressures on your own life. I know that life is hard. My Son was One acquainted with suffering and grief. He suffered greatly so that you could live life in freedom to be and do all I’ve called you to be and do. Take up the shield of FAITH and quench all the firey darts of the evil one. He is trying to take advantage of the hour and discourage and defeat as many as he can. So I am please when you resist the temptation to feel discouraged and instead turn on music, or play your guitar and sing praises to me and dance. Praise is a great weapon in My arsenal. I am raising up the tent of David so I WANT you to praise, and to sing, to worship , so that the enemy can have no hold on you. In ALL THINGS, praise Me and watch how the circumstances will turn. I have a few surprises for the enemy also ! And I am about to put them on display ! SUDDENLY I will come down and you will see the desires of your heart as you worship Me in the beauty of holiness. Tumultuous times are coming and they too will come suddenly in various areas of the world. So PRAISE ME and do not let up your guard. Put on your armor daily. The blood of Jesus is a standard of glory against all the strategies of the enemy. Speak the TRUTH of My Word . Use it as a sword to cut through the enemy’s taunts. I love you My beloveds and there is nothing I won’t do for those who love Me so long as your heart is melded with Mine. Take My hand as we walk through these days and times together. Like a good child, do not let go of My hand while crossing the roads ahead. I am WITH you. I am EMMANUEL - God with you ! I will NEVER leave you nor forsake you !

I WILL BE YOUR GREAT DESIRE. And your heart will swell with JOY and exuberance for what I do for you ! You will go out with joy and be led forth with peace. Great manifestations of light and power will startle many into obedience to the truth of the gospel.

Do not be anxious for anything for I am with you until the end of all time. Your faith will leap to what your hearts have desired and you will no longer be held back by doubt and suspicion. Get ready to experience the RIDE of YOUR LIFE ! GREAT JOY will be yours as you see the hearts of so many turn to ME. Come aside for a time My beloveds and let me love on you and lean your head on my chest that I may share My secrets with you, and My great love for you.

Humility is knowing Who I AM in comparison to you, and having the right perspective is important, so that you don’t diminish your own worth or Mine. But it is also casting all your cares upon ME, knowing that I care FOR you. It is by being DEPENDENT on ME that you demonstrate your humility instead of thinking you can handle everything yourself. I am weaving together the generations of adults and youth and children, that you will no longer belittle each other, but work TOGETHER to advance MY agenda, and MY Kingdom. I also have many “coats of many colors” to give to those who are willing to GO for Us. I have mantles for those who are willing to lay down their lives and pick up Mine. I am going to use EVERYONE who is willing to pay the price. For there is a great and awesome HARVEST coming and My church will need every part. No one need feel left out. I am also capable of changing even the hardest of hearts. So don’t get your eyes on what another is wearing. Just look to ME for what YOUR role is and obey Me when I tell you what to do. Each part is necessary – even the weaker ones. So do not dismiss the value of another. Do not be haughty and think that those who come in will take years to mature. I am doing a NEW THING. And I will use whomever I wish to bring MY KINGDOM to fruition in this hour. I WILL BE THEIR TEACHER if you will lead them to ME and to My Word. I will have a prophetic company of men, women, boys and girls who will ravage the camp of the enemy. I will turn witches and warlocks into prophets and evangelists, and I will take the mentally ill and reverse their captivity and use them to set others free. Do not LIMIT ME. I will do a MIGHTY WORK in this hour if you will only BELIEVE ! I am so eager to do this, but there has been a timing that is necessary, for I’ve been purifying My BRIDE, and testing and trials, rejection and suffering have been the means to more fruit in your lives, and for you to learn the lessons, you have needed to learn. FAITH is growing in those who are faithful. And it will take a HUGE LEAP when I do My awesome work ! Come and seek My face and listen for My still small voice. I am healing you, and giving you directions if you will but come to ME. I am eager for union with you My beloveds. We are going to have an awesome time. You will have all you need to do the work. But do NOT focus alone on finances, for I am the LORD of the HARVEST, and I know all you need beforehand.

A Wonder to Behold Dec 6th, 2004 Thru Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org Wonder: OT:6382 pele' (peh'-leh); from OT:6381; a miracle: KJV - marvellous thing, wonder (-ful, -fully).

The Lord spoke: “ A Wonder to Behold” and I asked what He wanted to say and He said… “Surely the Almighty, Your Lord and God is a Wonder to behold ! I AM the Creator of the Universe, the Author and Finisher of your faith. Nothing is impossible to Me. And I want you to set your expectations much higher. For I am going to do a marvelous work in his hour, and you will certainly be in AWE and WONDER at all that I do. I am treading and I am wedding. I am trading and I am raiding. I am setting in place and I am taking out of place. I am restoring and I am ordering all things in their proper place. I am waiting and anticipating a mighty and marvelous WONDER. I will do the impossible. I will lift Myself up in the eyes of all in the earth. There will be no excuse for unbelief. Do not think I came to bring peace I told My disciples. The members of your own family will be against you. I have come to separate and to cause division between what is holy and what is unholy. For what is holy cannot dwell with what is unholy. So there is division right now, and there will be more. You might think it is the enemy causing this division. But in most cases it will be because of a different level of love and holiness causing this kind of division. For some are only pretenders to the throne and are wolves in sheep clothing, while others are My true flock. The doubleminded cannot dwell with the single-eyed ! My sword is drawn, and there will be separation from all that is unholy in My true believers, and in the world. I know who will say yes and who will say no. So do not marvel when you see these things happen My beloveds. Know that I am in control. I am testing and I am trying for there is much to be done and I am preparing a bride that will walk in GRACE and LOVE. Do not feel that you have failed Me, because of making mistakes again. You have been being tested and tried and tried again, so that you will learn your lessons that will take you to the next level. I am coming and sweeping clean My threshing floor. I will burn up all the dross in your lives, and you will be empowered for the next stage of your journey. Do not be anxious for anything. I have made promises that I keep. I will not suffer you to go through anything I have not seen ahead for. When you go through the waters, they will not overtake you. When you go through the fire, you will not be burned, because I will be with you. I am EMMANUEL…God with you ! I will not allow anything to happen which is not meant for your growth and development in character. Have you not said, “Lord, I want to be like You !” ? I am only answering your heart’s desire, though in a moment you may have forgotten you said it. I did not forget. I am making you into a most beautiful bride. I have seen to every detail of 75
    • your life. I knew ahead what decisions you would make. And I am very pleased with the way My work in you is coming. This momentary affliction will pass, and you will be catapulted into your destiny as time escalates and leads into a myriad of events that will test the hearts of all men. Rejoice and be glad, for My time is soon coming. Do not be disheartened or nervous about anything. Did I not care for Elijah when there was nothing to eat, I sent him Ravens. When the children of Israel were hungry I sent them quail, and manna. They did not go without. Supernatural salvation, and deliverances from evil abounded in the times of the apostles. It will once again happen as then as you walk in trust and FAITH in ME. Believe for greater things. Believe in the miracle of multiplication. Do not limit Me. But think BIG in what I can do for I am a BIG, BIG GOD ! You will not have to strive to receive what I will pour out freely ! I want you resting in My arms My bride! Come and fellowship with Me. Take in My WORD, and eat of it, and be encouraged to FAITH. For I said, “When I return, will I find faith on the earth ?” Encourage yourselves DAILY and sing to each other in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. Delight yourself in ME, and I will lift you up. You will rest in the shadow of My wings. Day and night I search for the soul that longs to commune with Me. I am not a rejecting God. I love you and love spending time with you, no matter what you are doing. Keep your MIND STAYED ON ME, and I will keep you in perfect peace. Do not dwell too much on current events, though awareness is good, dwelling on them can cause you to lose focus on what is really important to you ! Keep your eyes focused above all the circumstances. Your longings for ME will be filled My beloveds. I am coming soon to thrill and captivate you with many signs of My manifest love and GRACE. Truly all will wonder at the amazing things I will do ! Be expectant. Walk in FAITH !” Isa 29:14 NKJV The Secret Garden Dec 9th, 2004 thru Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org Isa 30:15 NKJV For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel: "In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength." But you would not, “I know a place where the music is fine and the lights are turned down low. I know a place where we can go…” [ old song from the 60’s – Petula Clark I think] came to mind. Then the Lord said: “There is a wonderful place of reknown, where I meet with My beloveds if they are willing to go. It is a quiet place where we can commune together and talk and just listen to the sound of the birds and leaves on the trees rustling. Where we can smell flowers, and grass and there is a warmth of fellowship there that cannot be found in other places. Serenity is a sweet place of communion. Sometimes the music needs to 76
    • stop, and the world be blotted out to hear more clearly…so that all you hear is the sound of nature and the senses are fine tuned to hear other things. If you surround yourself with noise and talk all the time, how can you hear My voice ? I am found in the still small voice. And it is in this place of peacefulness and thoughtfulness that I can be found. A place of quietness and rest ! There is a rest for My beloveds that so many know nothing about. They think they have to strive and perform, and even in the striving, they at least are trying to commune. But they don’t know how easy I’ve made it – that it’s in quietness and in REST that you can be restored. It is the opposite place of the world’s striving and busyness! So it is also a place of warfare! It seems that some would think what a farce that is to think you don’t have to DO something in warfare. “You just can’t lay down or the enemy will walk all over you !” But that is not the whole TRUTH My friends. REST is a powerful weapon in the striving, quick fix world of this age! There is a time for fighting, and there is a time for letting ME do the fighting, and allowing you to REST IN ME! It seems incomprehensible to many. But that is the secret garden. It is a place of REFRESHING and RENEWAL! So don’t think that constantly praying, and constantly striving is the only way to push through. When a woman gives birth, it is not by pushing her arms and legs. It is by the involuntary muscles of the womb contracting that she gives birth. If she strives it actually fights against the birthing process . Then the blood goes to the limbs instead of to the muscles of the womb where it is needed ! The mother has to cooperate with allowing the womb to do it’s work, which is a built in natural mechanism regulated by hormones and nerves, not by her striving, except when the pushing phase comes. So NOW is a time for resting in ME. And when it is time to PUSH, then I will catapult you into action ! Come to My garden and allow Me to touch you – to heal and deliver you from all the ravages of the enemy. Let me destroy all the distractions. Give your heart FULLY to My purposes, and all the rest of your efforts will be effort-LESS. I will help accomplish things in fullness of FAITH, if you will just TRUST ME more fully, and trust your EFFORTS less. Self sufficiency is NOT faith ! I know it fights the ways of the world to do this. But how can you grow in FAITH if you can do it yourself ? Think of that for a moment-Selah ! This is a secret that all the mystics of old had to learn. And when they learned it, of course came great opposition, for it offends the natural mind. Surely one has to meet the Lord’s effort half-way is one common idea ! But it is MAN’S idea, not MY idea ! It is lie. TRUST in the LORD with ALL of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding ! I will fight FOR you, IF you will LET ME ! But so many of you strive. Remember what happened at Jericho…All they had to do was march around the city once a day for seven days. Remember what happened with Gideon and his men ? Thousands were arrayed against them. They had only 300 77
    • men. They did not use swords even, but just blew TRUMPETS, and dropped the pitchers that held torches! That pitcher represented the flesh, allowed to drop to the ground and be broken. The torches represented the FIRE of the Holy Spirit. All they had to do is blow the SHOFARS – and deliverance CAME, and the enemy turned on themselves and killed each other…CONFUSION went through the camp of the enemy. And so it will be in these times for those who will TRUST IN MY WAYS. Come to My garden and let ME share with you MY STRATEGY for what I want you to do. Come and let me share with you My secrets – My love – My JOY - My kindness – My patience – MY self control ! STOP TRYING so hard, and just COME to ME.

Suffering and rejection, she’s taken standing firm Till now when her King brings forward an urn He polishes it till the shine of gold she can see And in it her reflection shines back to a tee She watches as He fills it with new sweet wine And gives her a huge drink, for she waited a long time. The snow has fallen on gentle places Bright smiles are seen upon all faces Glory and wonders abound in His love As torrents of His rain fall from above. She jumps and she dances and sings with glee At last she knows she is completely set free! Happiness rises till tears again she cries, At last an end to all the lies. His Spirit constantly moves shaking all that it can What is this - an utter light display , my eyes they do pan, Brightness all around as angels are deployed Till all the works of the enemy are destroyed !

Youth for Christ Jan 1st, 2005 Via Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org The Lord said “Youth for Christ” and I’m aware of that as an organization, but asked Him what He wanted to say about it: “Restlessness fills the hearts of many of the youth across the world. Times are escalating and they will begin to have their eyes opened to the signs of the times as they see the world in tumult. There are many now who can see the changes, but still doubt what they may have been taught due to ungodly influences in the colleges and schools putting doubt and skepticism into their thinking about Me. But I will soon remove ALL the DOUBT and unbelief for those who really want the truth. And many I 80
    • will press so that they will want the truth. For their flesh is full of rebellion and discontentments. Just as in the times of Elijah I have reserved a remnant who will not bow their knee to Baal. I have worked on them even in the lost of the world to disdain riches in order that they might truly cling to ME as I am revealed ! This generation will not pass away before they see the coming of the KING of KINGS and LORD OF LORDS. I am amassing a great army young and old, and of all races, and ethnic groups, to go forth into the streets of cities and nations and to do the work of their KING. I will release REVELATION as never before. I will POUR OUT MY SPIRIT on all flesh and they will see the glory of the LORD Your God ! I am calling to many of you that are older to become spiritual mothers and fathers in the sense of NURTURING the young and imparting wisdom and all the gifts I’ve given you. I will teach them and reveal to them great secrets. So do not dismiss them because they are youth ! They are not separate from the church because of their youth . They ARE the church as much as children and older people. I can speak to them as easily as to you, for it is not because of your age or intelligence I speak, but because of My love for you. And I love them dearly, and I WILL speak to them and to all who will LISTEN, many, many secrets. Do not disqualify even the youngest of children for out of the mouths of babes and infants I have ordained PRAISE ! I told you to become as little children or you wouldn’t enter the kingdom of heaven ! So listen to your children and grandchildren ! Do not dismiss them from prayer rooms, or worship ! Know that I can move through whomever I will at My own preferance. I am not PARTIAL ! Raise the children to KNOW THEIR GOD and to worship Me in Spirit and in TRUTH ! Open your hearts to believe they have ability to hear from Me also ! Do not dismiss their words. Ready your hearts for HARVEST. Get your hearts healed by basking in My presence and being filled with My love. Then you will be able to do all I am calling you to do, by your dependence on ME. Do not strive, but relax in My love and kindness. For I AM pouring it out like a river…this river will be called “GREAT GRACE” ! And it will be blown into your midst by a mighty rushing WIND. Cloak yourselves in MY righteousness for I AM yours and you are Mine! You are My beloveds and I love you as no other loves you.

Resign yourselves to a love fest ! For My love is burning and on fire for you all and for all that will come into My Kingdom in the ensuing days ! I will flood the earth with My glory. Abide in Me and I will abide in you ! I will sing over you with JOY ! Know that this glory will also separate, and will cause the earth to groan and groan more and more.

Have an answer for the hope that lies within you to share !” Jan 9th, 2005 I am about to overturn the tables of the moneychangers and I am asking YOU to procure a true heart of generosity from ME, so that you can walk through the times ahead without getting stained by the yeast that softens the fruit and rots it on the inside. I do not want any unforgiveness or root of bitterness in My vessels destined to be turned to gold. Search your hearts and ask of ME, for I am humble and I am capable of letting you know when there is a problem, if you will just ask. I am determined to take out of all hearts really belonging to ME, all that hinders you from being perfected in ME. Come and bask in MY sunshine just as natural fruit is ripened by the sun, so you must also bask in MY Son’s LIGHT of glory to be sanctified and made whole and to continue to produce good fruit ! Intimacy is what is necessary now ! Do not run away My beloveds ! I am here and wanting to hold you in My arms of love. I will drive away all the intruders, if you will but REST in ME ! I will make you like trees planted by the river of LIFE, and you will bear fruit 12 months of the year and your leaves will be for the healing of the nations ! All will come and partake of your fruit !” Jan 12.2005 “ Many are worried now about finances. They can see the rumblings in the world and the signs of the times. I AM the RESOURCE of everything you need. I am NOT the harsh taskmaster. But I am stretching many of you in faith for the days ahead are perilous and not times of plenty for most. Any wealth now will be for sharing with the poor, not for selfish ambition. I AM the God Who keeps you alive in famine. I AM the ONE who provides escapes from death. I AM the ONE Who will give you all the wisdom you need for the times ahead if you will but seek My face and not just My hand. Truly I tell you that this generation will not pass away before seeing the coming of Christ again in the heavens. Be like the WISE VIRGINS. Store up oil, not gold and silver, though many will be able to do that whom I can trust with finances to help others. The MOST important thing is to spend time with Me so I can prepare you for all that is ahead. GREAT exploits are ahead for all who love Me and obey Me. When the enemy comes in like a FLOOD, and He has come like a flood of many waters. I WILL RAISE UP A STANDARD AGAINST HIM I SAID ! You are that standard ! Think upon what that means. Think how you must be made the strong horse in battle so you can be effective and what that must take . The antichrist is at hand and you are not worried about the right things. Souls hang in the balance and unbelief is RAMPANT in the world and in My church. I am turning the tables on the ungodly and in that process ALL will be affected. Do not be ignorant. I have told these things to you ahead of time. You only have a few years before all will crumble. 82
    • There is a judgment for every SYSTEM of man that has exalted itself against ME. Man will learn what is important, in most cases the hard way, for many have become stubborn and mockery is strong. Where is the day of His coming many say in My OWN church, because they do not have true relationship with ME. They think life will go on and on blithely believing in self sufficiency and not realizing I AM AT HAND ! THEY WILL recognize soon enough. It is not my desire to see judgment. I am NOT a God of destruction but of restoration and LIFE and LOVE. THAT is the message you must carry as you go about your daily life now. LOOK and ask each day “ who can I touch today Father ?” And I will show you. Do not look for the easy way. Take up your cross and walk ! Do not think that awakening will not come at a cost. The rains are pouring out – you’ve asked for rain in the time of the latter rains, and it is coming. Every eye shall see, every knee shall bow to Jesus ! Be courageous ! Do not be afraid to speak for ME. Be bold and do not flinch at their mockery ! Do not be afraid of their faces. For behold I send you to a rebellious house ! They are thinking of glory and praying for revival, but they have not the knowledge of the fullness of what I AM about to do ! Be sensitive to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit. Do not ignore His promptings. It is time to be DEPENDENT on Him for what to do , where to go, who to minister to, and who NOT to minister to ! The enemy will try to get you so busy that you will not have time for ME. But all ministry must come out of your intimacy with ME. If you do not stay intimate with ME, then you will be prone to the spirit of this hour, of delusion and deception and rebellion. Stay close and take communion often. Pray for your families and friends you know. SPEAK THE WORD with confidence in MY ABILITY TO PERFORM IT ! I love you My bride, My own, My beloveds. Your eyes will behold much turmoil and violence in the days ahead. So keep your private place in ME and do not turn away from the haven I AM in such a storm of turbulence and havoc. The enemy means to bring havoc but you will show the world what PEACE is amidst the turmoil. You will show them life by RAISING THE DEAD TO LIFE ! You will show them LOVE by pouring out MY compassion on the lost. I will give you the discernment when someone is not true. You will not want to minister to them, because of the evil in them. But many others will be plucked out of the evil darkness and be flooded with My light and proclaim the gospel to others like them. So LOOK to ME. Do not try to judge on your own. ASK and you shall receive. Knock and the door will be opened. I AM YOUR REDEEMER and SAVIOR ! I will see you through. I AM EMMANUEL – GOD WITH YOU. I will be with you in the fire and in every situation you go through. Cling to ME, and the enemy will FLEE ! I love you and will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” 83
    • Pregnant With Expectation Jan 19th, 2005 via Priscilla Van Sutphin I heard the Lord say, “pregnant with expectation” and I thought back to the days when I was pregnant with my son, and how much I looked forward to the delivery. He was a sign. He was in utero 11 months. I knew I was pregnant in December and didn’t deliver till October 10th, 1978. I was 32 when I had him, so I was very excited in looking forward to his birth and the hours when I could hold him in my arms. God brought this back to give a sense of how He has felt in looking forward to this hour, when He will give birth to Christ in us, the Hope of glory in greater measure than we have known. It is easy when a pregnancy goes over the date to begin to get weary of the weight and discomfort and to just want this baby to come to birth. I think many of us feel that way, in that we have know for a long time this was going to happen and we are eager to receive the greater grace and glory He has for us. Then He had me look up a few verses and spoke: Isa 64:3-4 NIV For when you did awesome things that we did not expect, you came down, and the mountains trembled before you. 4 Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him. Isa 60:1-5 AMP ARISE [ from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you--rise to a new life ] ! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! [Zech 8:23.] 2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. [Isa 60:19-22; Mal 4:2; Rev 21:2,3.] 3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. [ Isa 2:2,3; Jer 3:17] 4 Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms. 5 Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged; because the abundant wealth of the [Dead] Sea shall be turned to you, unto you shall the nations come with their treasures. [Ps 119:32.] I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End ! I am the Faithful FATHER Who gives good gifts to His children and to whom belong escapes from death. I am the Master Craftsman and I know just how long it takes to rub down the wood, to cut it and shape it into the image I WANT. I am not a neglectful father. I know the testing and trials that will birth humility in a yielded vessel. Koinonia came to mind… 84
    • NT:2842 koinonia (koy-nohn-ee'-ah); from NT:2844; partnership, i.e. (literally) participation, or (social) intercourse, or (pecuniary) benefaction: KJV - (to) communicate (-ation), communion, (contri-) distribution, fellowship. Right now I am wanting fellowship with you to make you into the strong horses in battle I want you to be ! I am watching and waiting for you with open arms and a merciful heart. I am your FATHER Who loves you as no other loves you, and I promise you, that I am here for you. I will not disappoint you. I will not forsake you. I long to have this communion with you for I am imparting to you more of ME. Put aside all the distractions. Lay aside all the weights and just come to Me in worship, and I will take care of all the other things you worry about. I said to SEEK FIRST the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you. Come away with ME My beloveds ! Come away from all the noise and clutter of the world. Hide yourselves in ME. OT:1980 [ as in Songs 2:10 – come away] halak (haw-lak'); akin to OT:3212; a primitive root; to walk (in a great variety of applications, literally and figuratively): KJV - (all) along, apace, behave (self), come, (on) continually, be conversant, depart, be eased, enter, exercise (self), follow, forth, forward, get, go (about, abroad, along, away, forward, on, out, up and down), greater, grow, be wont to haunt, lead, march, more and more, move (self), needs, on, pass (away), be at the point, quite, run (along), send, speedily, spread, still, surely, tale-bearer, travel (-ler), walk (abroad, on, to and fro, up and down, to places), wander, wax, [way-] faring man, be weak, whirl. You are entering a time of great anticipation and excitement in heaven. The earth is reeling from the spiritual changes. I am coming with My fire and I will harness the winds, and I will stride in the earth. My glory will be perceived in new dimensions. You have not come this way before. Why do you look for something familiar. This place I am bringing you is very unfamiliar to you. You have never been this way. You have never felt Me in this way. This will be NEW. I am doing a new thing in the earth. Do not be surprised as the day of the Lord is coming, for there is much harvesting to be done. Awakening is at the door, but it will come at a great cost all over the earth, for men’s hearts have grown cold. Do not take lightly the gift of LIFE I have given you. Many think they have so much more time than what is reality. I am going to send the reapers but I need you now in MY chambers, My beloved, for I am going to do something that has not been done before in quite the same way. And the glory of the Lord will be SEEN upon you. You are entering a new dimension in life IN ME. All things will escalate ! Things in the world, and things of My KINGDOM ! Come and hide yourself IN ME. Let me ravish your heart for I am going to release My LOVE like a torrent. Come to ME. Depend on ME for all you need, for I am a FAITHFUL FATHER ! Raise your expectations My beloveds! 85
    • The Midnight Hour Jan 27th, 2005 12:00 Ruach Ha Kodesh via Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org A friend Judy Peloquin wrote and said this week she keeps hearing midnight over and over again. And as I asked the Lord if He wanted to say something…He spoke: “The midnight hour” so I looked up scriptures and asked Him what He wanted to say about it… “The Bridegroom awakens at the midnight hour looking for His bride. Why the midnight hour ? Because at last He is called to finish the robe for His bride. He will clothe here in righteousness and bedeck her with jewels, making her the jewels in His crown. She will shine before all those who look upon her, and they will be jealous, who refused to come in to the chambers to be adorned. Those who were too busy, those who were too wanton for the things of this world will be amazed at what I will do. The nations will bow down before the display of My precious bride, as I put the finishing touches on her and display her to the world. Who are these who fly like a cloud, and like doves to their roosts ? Are they not the bride of My Son who learn to soar in the heavenlies, who have come to the chambers of their King and have been clothed with gold of Ophir and perfumed with the finest oils ? I have prepared a wonderful surprise for My beloveds that no one can take from them. I alone am LORD and I ALONE know all they have been through for the sake of My name. I will do all My heart purposes to do, and the nations will bow down, and all those who hated you for My name’s sake will bow down and know that I have loved you ! The King of Kings is about to display His glory as never before. He is longing for His bride to see all He wants her to see. Come into My chambers He is calling to you, that you may behold My glory and receive My love. I am delighted by you, and I will grant you like I did Esther, whatever you wish in your heart of hearts that is one with My heart. I see many struggling and striving, but I have called you to REST in Me. I am eager to perform My mighty act ! I am eager to see My Son arise. Remember that I told you, that when My glory comes, with it comes judgment ! It will break your heart to see the shaking that comes, but you will also see great miracles, great salvations, great glory all over the earth. Do not neglect your time with me. For when this awakening comes, will come a great tsunami of peoples into the church. Fear will tempt you. You will feel overwhelmed by the numbers. PREPARE your hearts for HARVEST. In harvest you must separate the grain from the shaft, you must clean the fruits and vegetables so they are edible. Everyone who is willing will receive all they need to help in this harvest. All members of the body will be necessary. There is no need for competition and no room for jealousy in the KINGDOM. Cleanse your hearts NOW from all unworthy suspicions towards brothers and sisters. Do not be caught 86
    • pointing the finger. Remove the log from your own eyes, and you will be able to see more clearly, the measure of GRACE and COMPASSION I HAVE FOR ALL WHO ARE WILLING TO COME TO ME. Let ME do the judging. Be conduits of My love and you will see great miracles. Miracles come through MY compassion, from being united to MY heart and MY love for the one you see before you. Ask ME, and I will show you all you need to know. I will give you the compassion if you ask for it. You have but to ask for anything you need, as I AM THE RESOURCE of all you need. LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I HAVE LOVED YOU. BY THIS ALL MEN WILL KNOW YOU BELONG TO ME.” Ruth 3:8-9 NKJV Now it happened at midnight that the man was startled, and turned himself; and there, a woman was lying at his feet. 9 And he said, "Who are you?" So she answered, "I am Ruth, your maidservant. Take your maidservant under your wing, for you are a close relative." Isa 61:10-11 NKJV Mal 3:17 NKJV "They shall be Mine," says the LORD of hosts, "On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him." Zech 9:16 NKJV Isa 60:8 NKJV Ps 68:13 NKJV Ps 119:62 NKJV Hag 2:6-9 NKJV Matt 25:6-10 NKJV Luke 11:5-13 AMP Ex 11:4-6 NKJV Mark 13:35-37 NKJV Jan 20th, 2005 …The Lord said something in a personal word for me and I feel it is for many others as well. He said that Jurisdiction will change: Jurisdiction: 1 : the power, right, or authority to interpret and apply the law 2 a : the authority of a sovereign power to govern or legislate b : the power or right to exercise authority : CONTROL 3 : the limits or territory within which authority may be exercised But He said jurisprudence would NOT change. Jurisprudence is… 1 a : a system or body of law b : the course of court decisions 2 : the science or philosophy of law 3 : a department of law <medical jurisprudence> For me and for others, this means our authority in the Spirit will be increased, but the judgments meted out by the courts in heaven will NOT. God is not a God of destruction but a God of LIFE and RESTORATION. Some things that need to be restored must be torn down first in many cases in the natural. And likewise the same is in the spiritual realm. The hearts of men have grown cold. And the earth is groaning and changing as the Day of the Lord is at hand. I asked the Lord what He wanted to say about this righteous indignation. “ I have filled many hearts with My own righteous indignation for I am not content to continue to see abuse and malice, greed and avarice continue unchecked. It is MY 87
    • LOVE THAT LEADS TO REPENTANCE. But My judgments are MY LOVE greatly provoked. People don’t want to hear that I’m a God who allows terrible things to happen. But in the earth there is a law of sowing and reaping that is bringing about great change right now. The violence in the earth has increased. Perversion in the earth has increased. Idolatry is increasing. Rebellion/witchcraft is increasing. And likewise My Spirit will also increase in those who carry My presence. It will increase proportional to the evil increasing in the world. I told you great darkness would fill the earth, and it is consuming all it can. But I also said, that My glory would fill the earth as the waters cover the seas. I said My glory would be SEEN upon you. It is reality more than what you can see right now. CLING TO HOPE. Be prisoners of hope for I AM COMING and when I come I will NOT disappoint you. The only place of safety now is IN ME. I WILL RESTORE all the locusts have eaten. I will RESTORE all that has been robbed and stolen from My beloved ones. Things will NEVER be the same again, I’ve told you. BELIEVE ME when I say to you, that you will see the SON of GOD arising with HEALING in His wings, and you will trample the wickedness in the earth ! I will reestablish apostolic power in the earth, and I will establish MY WILL in the lives of all who love Me. Do not be sad although it is hard to see the changes. REJOICE, and again I say to you, REJOICE. For your LORD is at hand. Let your gentleness be known to all men. Unity and generosity are in My heart. The cries of the fatherless and lonely come into My presence every day. The starving children and abused women and children and men are on My heart every day, every hour, every minute. I SEE it all. I AM Jehovah Rohi. I SEE all that is going on in the world, even though you are blind to much of it. Do not lament the wicked being judged, but lament the innocent ones for it rains on the just and the unjust as well. But those who KNOW ME, will not be lost, but enter in to My presence. Jan 24th 2005 “ Many of you have cried out to have the ability to do miracles and to raise the dead ! And I am about to release those miracles more and more. The one who is willing to go all the way with Christ is the one to whom much is given. When much is given, much is required. Hence many have been going through the dying process. Dying to self that is ! Dying to the OLD MAN. Learning to live with ME - Learning to trust in ME fully – learning to lay down your lives for the sake of others; This is a lost paradigm in some circles of My church. But it is about to be revived. You need the wisdom to walk in MY WAYS. That means you MUST die…the grain that dies and falls to the ground will bear much seed for harvesting. I am separating I have said. I am separating you from everything that comes before ME. I am breaking down all idolatry to man and his ways. I am tearing away from you the fleshly nature. 88
    • I am delivering you from ALL evil, if you are willing. I don’t force anyone. I answer your prayers for release. I answer your heart that wants to be like ME. If you want to bring life, then you must decrease to the point of death to self, so I can be brought forth in you, and in others. I will do it, if you are just willing. You can’t DO it yourself anyway. Apart from ME, you can do nothing. Your will must be conformed to MY will. That means you must die to all you will, and live for what I WILL. Are you willing to pay the cost for apostleship ? There are many who say they are, but in their hearts cannot.” “If you are just willing, then I will make your heart and will, and mind conform to MY heart, will and mind. But you must be willing of your own volition. The groaning of your heart is the dying that is within it. There is a dying I am bringing you to, so that you will LIVE abundantly and without perplexion, without striving and self centeredness. I have promised you abundant life and I am bringing it about as you yield yourselves to ME. Don’t grow weary in the lessons for I am here for you and desire that you live out the fullness of the call on your lives. And in this hour it is necessity to be content with the things that you have – earthly things, and the things of this world will die away, but the LIFE you have in ME will NEVER DIE. I AM perfect. And in ME, you are made perfect - ONLY in ME ! You will NEVER reach perfection through striving. You will never reach perfection through others. It is only through communion and union with ME that all will be accomplished. I AM everlasting love and kindness. I AM the Way the TRUTH and the LIFE. It is only through ME, that you can have all you need to get through this life. No amount of striving to please Me will do it. Without HOLINESS no one will see God says My Word. The way of holiness, the narrow path is through ME. I AM the WAY. Come away with ME and find your true life in ME.” Rom 8:13 NKJV Rom 8:37-39 NKJV 2 Cor 1:9-11 NKJV The Midnight Hour Jan 27th, 2005 12:00 Ruach Ha Kodesh via Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org A friend Judy Peloquin wrote and said this week she keeps hearing midnight over and over again.

    • Jan 31st, 2005 “ The Day of the Lord comes burning like an oven and all those who are proud will be stubble. There will come a day that will scorch the earth from the power of the sun and it will truly be a day of woe and weeping. Many will turn to the Lord but many will still do wickedly and love their wickedness more than repenting. Many will refuse to bow their knees, even when I have shown Myself to be greater than all their wicked schemes. They will curse Me and shout great blasphemies to the Lord of heaven and earth. Do not be surprised by all the wickedness around you. And do not be dismayed, for I AM ARISING. I say, I AM ARISING with healing in My wings. And you will go forth full of anointing, for all I have called you to do in this hour. Come and worship come and talk to Me. Come and still yourself before Me and allow Me to touch you. I AM the LORD of the Harvest and I say to you the fields are ripe for Harvest. There is nothing that will keep Me from doing what I am about to do. Even your own unfaithfulness or busyness will not stop what I will do. I have purposed to have a holy bride. I have purposed to gather a Harvest from the world in the midst of the turmoil that ensues. And I WILL HAVE IT ! I will draw men to Myself as never before. The flood have lifted up their voice, but the voice of Your LORD is greater than the floods. The voice of the LORD will destroy the covering over the face of the earth that has kept them from MY TRUTH. I will DEMONSTRATE MY LOVE in powerful and mighty ways to give them a chance to turn from the wickedness of generations to ME. I am preparing you and training you through all the tests and trials. I am building you up in your FAITH. I AM WITH YOU in all you go through. Do not think because you can’t FEEL ME, that I’m not there. I will do ALL I have purposed to do. The dead will be raised to life in increasing numbers, and the world will know that I HAVE LOVED YOU. I will perform My faithfulness in fulfilling the WORD I’ve spoken and the GLORY will cleanse you and lift you up to new heights in ME. Even as the sun has been shooting off fire, so MY FIRE is coming to the EARTH in greater measure to establish MY KINGDOM amidst the opposition in the earth. It will not alter the course of what is written for the evil men will do, but it will alter your ability to go through all that is coming on the earth and to draw a great Harvest to Me, and to teach and disciple them and heal their wounds. There will be mighty deliverances. The Lord GOD of ELIJAH is at hand ! Lift up your voices and sing ! SHOUT aloud to the mountains of perversion, lust, hatred, anger, distortion and rejection. SPEAK MY WORD WITH CONFIDENCE IN ME TO PERFORM IT! I will lead you in HOLY PROCLAMATIONS that will SHAKE THE EARTH ! “ Abba Then I heard the song, “ Come, now is the time to WORSHIP “. 91
    • Mal 4:1 NKJV The Great Day of God - "For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up," Says the LORD of hosts, "That will leave them neither root nor branch. 2 But to you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings; and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves. 3 You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this," Says the LORD of HOSTS. Feb 8th, 2005 “I am assembling an army that will be formidable, not because they are strong really, though they are strong IN ME, but because they KNOW ME. They know My LOVE for them and for all mankind. They know because they have endured many temptations, many trials and afflictions and sufferings, and I have brought them through them all. It’s not because they are strong in their own might, but because they have leaned on their Beloved. That is what they have learned to do best. They have learned to overcome withdrawing from ME, when they fail, or are disappointed or suffering. Instead they draw INTO ME ! They hide themselves in the ROCK of all ages! They know that apart from ME, they can do NOTHING, in and of themselves. The days are coming that will try men’s souls and the only way to hide is to hide IN ME. I AM your Source of comfort, your Source of peace and safety amidst a perverse and rebellious generation ! I will keep you alive in famine. I fed Elijah with ravens. I AM the GOD Who heals you and delivers you from all evil. I will be a wall around you and the glory in your midst ! I am not a man that I should lie, nor a son of man that I should change My mind ! I am pouring out GRACE and GRACE and MORE GRACE. GREAT GRACE is commensurate with GREAT RESPONSIBILITY. I am turning up the fire and removing all that cannot withstand the test. ABIDE IN ME and MY WORD, and I will abide in you and feed you with treasures you know not of. I AM the BREAD OF LIFE. Unless you eat my flesh and drink My blood, you will not have LIFE to make it through the days ahead.” John 6:50-58 NKJV “Eat the scroll like I told Ezekial that you may live and breathe and have your being in ME, and so that you will be able to give an answer for those who are on the outside looking in. I don’t just want you to read it but to DIGEST it. To EAT of My flesh is also to suffer as I suffered. For ALL who are godly in Christ MUST suffer I have said. Consecrate yourselves…and abide in Me and My Word, for I will release revelation and power that will help you to endure the days ahead and to have the wisdom that is needed to lean on ME, and to get all you need from that abiding grace. Worship ME in the beauty of holiness. It is in LIVING the WORD that it becomes LIFE IN YOU. As you read My Word and get it inside of you I will release MORE discernment and the gifting will flourish. I will make you into My deliverers of men ! I will give you greater authority over all the power of the evil one, as he finds nothing in you to 92

I will help you to release those prisoners that have been bound all their lives with torments and affliction, suffering and rejection and hatred, and all manner of sicknesses and disease. Murderers shall bow. Corporate moguls will bow. Thieves and those caught up in perversion will bow to the name of JESUS. You are my living epistles, written and seen by all men. If you only quote the Word but do not have My life in you to LIVE IT, then how will they see ME ? ” See 2 Cor 5:20-21 NIV Without HOLINESS, no one will see God ! I have told you these things that you might have life and have it abundantly. I AM THE SOURCE OF ALL LIFE, so come to ME and you will have life. Come to me and you will have all you need to endure the trials and triumphs ahead. Great power also brings great temptation to pride. Guard your hearts from seeking recognition and boasting. BOAST IN ME. Do not allow the enemy to creep in unawares. Do not allow him to tempt you to belittle those around you, because of what I do in you. Stay close My beloveds for the fire is heating up and I told you I am rearranging things. I am realigning things in your life so that you will be ON TRACK with My plans for you. Be sensitive to My presence and allow ME to continue the healing in your heart. I know the pain, and I know the struggles, but I AM YOUR ROCK of DEFENSE. I WILL carry out My plan for you if you will no longer strive and just allow ME to REIGN ! I love you as no other loves you. I also have a warning for the unteachable and those emboldened to disdain their own brothers and sisters. I will no longer allow you to get away with what you have gotten away with before ! There will be more and more consequence for using your words against those bought with My blood. So let your gentleness be known to all men ! The Lord is at hand ! [Phil 4:5] When it IS time to confront, those who speak for ME, will speak MY very words, and not their own ! “ “Transformational Living” Feb 11th, 2005 Ruach Ha Kodesh thru Priscilla Van Sutphin The Lord said, “transformational living”. Phil 3:10-12 AMP [ For my determined purpose is ] that I may know Him [ that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly ], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [ which it exerts over believers ], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope] 11 That if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body]. 12 Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but 93
    • I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own. “ My River of Life is flowing down with My firey love. This River is not like any other River. It looses a torrent of adversity and testings, yet helps remove all the FLESH LIFE in My beloveds. I am building up My army ! But an army is not built through easiness of living. An army must practice PRAISE in the midst of torments and trials in order to overcome ! This is so you don’t react like others, nor with complaining like those in the wilderness, but that you RUN TO ME, the Author and Giver of Life. And you lay your life down at the cross. The CROSS releases LIFE giving Resurrection power! Rom 5:3-6 AMP If the troubles were those you could overcome on your own, they would not build FAITH. You would move out in presumptive self sufficiency and solve them yourselves. But when they are beyond your solving, then you MUST rely on ME - Depend on ME. This dependence is important in an army. They must look to the leader for directions. You CANNOT be independent of ME in your thinking when you are in MY army ! You must obey and follow orders. How can you follow orders if you stop up your ears and are too busy or have your own plan ? Faith that pleases me is enduring faith. Faith that WALKS through. Faith that holds on if even by your fingernails you do it ! Do not berate yourself for anything. This is how the enemy gets you misdirected to look at your own failings. Thank ME for your failings and give ME PRAISE even when you fail. That is especially the time that you need to come and let me heal your heart. The enemy would have you beat yourself up and criticize yourself. But MY GRACE is sufficient for you in ALL things. Even your weaknesses ! Even your failures ! Even your inconsistencies in faithfulness ! My GRACE covers it all, just as MY BLOOD covers ALL of you. NOTHING can separate you from My love. If your heart fails you in wrong motivations. Thank Me that I am helping you to overcome these weaknesses. Do not focus on your failure and dwell there. That is what the enemy WANTS you to do. For then you get your eyes OFF ME. I AM your RESOURCE for all you need. I give you the overcoming power to resist the enemy, and to overcome all odds. I will walk you through anything and My goal is ALWAYS for your best interest. Like a good FATHER, I love to give gifts to My children and with overcoming each hurdle, more GRACE and glory is poured into you. So do not fall to self condemnation for to do that is to fall into the hands of a RELIGIOUS spirit ! It separates you from trusting in GRACE alone. My yoke is easy and My burden is LIGHT ! I am YOUR KING and MASTER. Look to Me, and WAIT on Me for all your directions. Each day has it’s own problems. So step by step I am leading you. I am overcoming in MANY the predisposition to stray from GRACE. It is not by your trying to do better that you overcome. It is ONLY MY GRACE that maintains your walk, and maintains your joy, 94
    • and peace , and only by MY PRESENCE that you receive all you need to get through. Do not fall into guilt or condemnation. As you yield to self condemnation, then the temptation comes to condemn others as well. I would have you to be quick to listen and slow to speak. Ask for a guard to your mouth. Stop and ask ME, before you speak about anyone else. Remove the plank from your own eye before talking about what is in someone else’s eye. Avoid criticizing anyone else OR yourself ! CUT OFF THE ACCUSER ! Ask for MY GRACE to fill you at that very moment that the temptation comes ! Bring every thought captive. Give the grace to others that you want for yourself.” Abba Feb 18.2005 “When My Spirit is poured out from on high, there will be a mighty demonstration of My power through you, like you never have imagined. I want you to not just play in My anointing but to share it wherever you go and to demonstrate My power and LOVE to all people. I will remove all the fear when I come. My love will be poured out in such measure that you will overflow with My love and anointing and all else will not be able to remain. Perfect love will cast out all fear ! power. It is MY GRACE being poured It will flood your souls and the fire blockages that have kept Do not be afraid of the manifestations of My out in GREAT measure - and as never before ! of My love will remove all the hindrances and you from the fullness of My glory. I am looking for an attitude of heart that WANTS THAT to happen ! Cry out for ME. I AM YOUR PORTION. I AM YOUR GREAT REWARD. I AM your DELIVERER ! You will go from the measure you have now to a much greater measure that will shock you and all around you ! This will happen ALL OVER THE WORLD. The worship is increasing, even as the darkness is increasing, and I will increase within you and expand your ability to hold a greater measure of My spirit so that it leaks out wherever you go. I have to remove some hindrances within you and without you, through this outpouring of My GRACE AND GLORY. The Spirit was given to ME without measure. But it is given you with measure – you grow from glory to glory. Feb 23 2005 The Lord spoke, “abundance of ME”….then, “I have an abundance of Me to give to you. I am not slack concerning My promises. Awakening is near and he who has ears hear - for I am coming like a MIGHTY RUSHING WIND once again. I will shake the heavens and the earth, and I will turn all who will to the Desire of All Nations ! Do you hear the sound of the abundance of rain ? 95
    • Havoc is coming upon the earth. His horse thunders across the earth to cause confusion and to distract you away from what is most important. Remember when this awakening begins to keep your thoughts on ME. For great turmoil, confusion, and insanity will be with him to stupefy and try to paralyze those who come to ME. Even as I loose My glory will another rise to try to take away the focus to himself, mimicking and causing signs and wonders as well. But know this, that those who are truly IN ME, will be safe from all that confusion and insanity. Stay close My beloveds to Your King during these times so that what is in the world will not overcome you. Come to me now while I may be found. Come and commune with ME. REST in ME so that when all these things come about, you will be grounded firmly in My love. As I loose My Spirit in awakening world wide, you will be catapulted into what I’ve planned for you since the beginning of time. Each has his own role to play in what is coming about. Do not look at how important someone else is. Do not be given to comparison with others. EACH PERSON is needed and valuable to the Kingdom. Just ask ME what is your role, and do that to the best of your ability. Again, I tell you, refrain from looking at what is on another’s plate. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Ask to be filled with My love and to be one with MY HEART, so that you may walk in the fullness of what I have for you. I am blowing on My garden and I will blow away all the clutter, all the strongholds, so that My bride is arrayed in the fullness of My love and all that I desire for her to have in Me. Startling miracles are coming as you reach out and help others who are confused by the circumstances of life. Healing anointing will flow even in the children to such a degree as to amaze those who are outside of My love ! I will use whomever I will to bring many to ME in this hour. Do not be afraid My beloveds. I AM WITH YOU. And I will be with you until the end. Grow in dependence on ME. Keep in close communion with ME. Submit your lives to ME so that I can be glorified in all you say and do. Step by step, you will See amazing things in this hour ! Keep your eyes fixed on ME. I will take my stand on the earth !” [153 – fruit bearing, the sons of God] Breaker, Breaker ! Feb 28th, 2005 Thru Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org Ps 42:7-11 NIV Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. 8 By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me — a prayer to the God of my life. 9 I say to God my Rock, "Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?" 10 My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long, "Where is your 96
    • God?" 11 Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. Ps 93:4-5 NIV Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea — the LORD on high is mighty. 5 Your statutes stand firm; holiness adorns your house for endless days, O LORD. Jonah 2:1-3 NIV From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the LORD his God. 2 He said: "In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me. From the depths of the grave I called for help, and you listened to my cry. 3 You hurled me into the deep, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers swept over me. I heard the Lord say “Breaker, Breaker!” and He had me look up scriptures, then said, “A BREAKER anointing is coming to My church. And in order for those who are going to move in it to understand it and use it, first they have to go THROUGH it and see that I AM the BREAKER. That no matter what happens I will see you through. For then with the comfort they are comforted with, and the power they are delivered with from the circumstances, can they then go forth to use this and take authority for the lives of others. And they will know from experience, not just from head knowledge, that I AM THE RESOURCE for all you need, and no weapon formed against you will prosper. They will understand what it is to stand even when you have lost all energy and motivation to stand. They will know how to lie still in MY ARMS and ALLOW ME to fight for them, and bring them through ! They will know how to FULLY TRUST ME for all their needs ! Many of you are like Jonah now, up to your neck and head in troubles and circumstances coming against you, and you’ve fallen sometimes to condemnation from yourself and others, and guilt, and self accusation. BUT it is not something you did. IT IS TRAINING ! IT IS WARFARE. I’ve shown you in the Word, even Paul was opposed by Satan when he wanted to go to Asia, so there were times when he couldn’t do what he was called to do at that moment, but it was delayed. That’s because sometimes you have no idea of ALL the circumstances going on in the world, but I DO. I know all things. I do what is best for you and especially for the development of your character. I am making you my strong horse in battle ! The GLORY of the Lord will be your rear guard, and the GLORY will be seen upon you! I will sanctify My beloveds and break every chain of bondage to the enemy so that you will walk in holiness and truth. You will become the living flames of fire I want you to be. You will walk and not faint. You will not grow weary in doing good. You will follow where I lead, and you will make disciples of all men. I will send you out to the streets and the highways and byways to gather in the harvest of all harvests. And there will be JOY in your heart as you see My delight in you and bring you to the place of great 97
    • LOVE and healing. You will be like the trees that bear fruit every month and whose leaves are for the healing of the nations. You will not wear out, for you will walk with ME and have communion and union with ME the rest of your days and your days will be full, while other times you just rest and seek My FACE. Your delight will be in ME and you will KNOW MY PRESENCE as Enoch did. YOU WILL NOT BE AFRAID after I do my might work in you. You will go forth with singing and dancing. You will rejoice and give me glory as you go forth in harvesting souls and demonstrating My love to the nations. I will be with you. I will walk with you and talk with you at greater levels of revelation than anything you’ve known. Do not be afraid. I will have My stand in the earth !” See Zech 10:3-12 NKJV Volunteers March 2nd, 2005 Via Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org Ps 110 NKJV Announcement of the Messiah's Reign (Matt 22:44; Acts 2:34,35) A Psalm of David - 1 The LORD said to my Lord, "Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool." 2 The LORD shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies ! 3 Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power; In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth. 4 The LORD has sworn and will not relent, "You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek." 5 The Lord is at Your right hand; He shall execute kings in the day of His wrath. 6 He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies, He shall execute the heads of many countries. 7 He shall drink of the brook by the wayside; Therefore He shall lift up the head. The Lord spoke to me “volunteers” and the above scripture came to mind… What do You want to say Father ?… “ I am looking for volunteers for the day of My power is at hand. I am looking for the hearts who will turn to ME. I am looking for those who will not take the glory for themselves, but will caste down their crowns at My feet and worship ME. I am looking for the soul who will accept my love into his or her heart with JOY and eagerness. For I am EAGER to do My great work and I am longing for union with My bride ! I am so desirous to shower you with my gifts, and favor. I am so desirous to have a bride who will bow to My will in her life and who will do what I WANT, and not just what you want. I am weeping with desire for a bride who loves ME, above all the things of this earth, above all the other people of this earth, above all she could have in this earth. I am looking, and I am looking, and I see so many caught up in the ways of the world. I want to do something to draw you to my side and say to you…WILL YOU BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I LOVE YOU ? WILL YOU BELIEVE ME 98
    • WHEN I SAY, I HAVE YOUR BEST IN MIND ? Will you take on this mantle of being a nobody, of being of no reputation ? Will you be like My SON ? Will you honor me and not just your own opinions ? Will you come away with ME, just because you are excited like a bride to spend time with your Bridegroom ? I want to hold you in my arms and speak tenderly to you. But so many are refusing to spend time with me. You dart off and run away and reject my advances. You think that doing all these other things is more important than time with ME. But I tell you that time with ME is NEVER wasted. It is ok to waste your life on ME. For when you come to ME, you get LIFE. I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. And there is no other way to get what I have to give you, than to come into my presence. I am going to bypass some of the barriers to My love and presence, and I am going to startle you with My advances. THEN you will know, that I truly love you. I am the Good Shepherd. I leave the 99 to go and reach out to the one who is far away, and wandering ! I am so in love with you! I cannot stand separation from the ones I love! I am longing to set you free. I AM rending the heavens and I WILL come down. I will surprise you with My love! I want you to draw honey from the Rock. I want you to move and have your being in ME. You are going to know FREEDOM as never before. CRY OUT for that freedom. It is coming. I AM COMING. I WILL set you free from all that has entangled you of this world, the flesh and the devil ! In a flood of many waters, I will protect you ! I will surround you with songs of deliverance. I AM the KING of KINGS and the LORD of LORDS. NOTHING is impossible with ME ! NOTHING ! NOTHING shall separate you from My love ! Only believe ! I have the best dinner prepared for My beloveds. I have a feast on the lees. I have a sumptuous affair I am inviting you to…and I will surprise you over and over with My love. Ps 32:6-7 NKJV Isa 25:6-12 NKJV March 5th 2005 The Lord spoke “Hall of Fame” and said,… This is My hall of fame ! This is only a small portion of My hall of fame. For Mine is so much larger than the one you have. There are not only those who were famous in delivering nations. But there are those who are famous because they endured humility, rejection and suffering and did not get bitter and overcame all odds to the contrary. For in so many ways they could have grown bitter and angry and ended up tormented. But they leaned on ME, and came to me to be set free. Their names are not in the halls of men, but their names are in MY HALL OF FAME. There are many names here in heaven from many nations and tongues. So many tortured, maimed, rejected and murdered. So many neglected by those who said they were “Christians”, But like the good Samaritan story, were ignored by those who thought 99
    • themselves holy and even persecuted and murdered by those who called themselves Mine ! My hall of fame is going to get larger and larger until I am moved to return by My Father. It is hard for me to see the many every day dying under extreme conditions and horror. There are North Koreans , and Chinese, Sudanese who had their heads chopped off. Women ravaged by war and the horror of seeing their child murdered or starved to death. I am calling more warriors to enter into the battle and count the cost. I am calling you to lay down your lives. You just have to be willing. I will give you the grace to do what I would have you to do. Be courageous in battle, and do not shrink from the tears of battle. Do not give up on My goodness. The enemy would try to sway you to think that I will never come and deliver this world. Many now are looking for ME to deliver them to the next as they do not want to face humiliation and torture, or martyrdom. Yet in other nations, they embrace the cross and they embrace a willingness to be LIKE ME ! – To lay down their lives for their brethren ! These are not pleasant thoughts, but when you give up your life, it is not a burden to be willing to lay down your life. It is a privilege. I see so many still trying to hold on to their lives, and hold on to their reputations. They don’t want to be thought strange…when that is the least of the problems you will face ! Have you not heard ? Have you not read the last book in My Word ? Can you not see the signs of the times ? You can see other things. But will you be willing to be My witnesses ? No matter what the cost ? What will you do when they want to torture you for standing up for Jews ? What will you do when they want you to conform to their new world religion ? Will you forsake My name so as not to see death or the death of your family ? Will you compromise or lay down your life for My name’s sake ? Have you even thought of this? Or do you still think it is so far away, and that you will not have to suffer like others in the nations? Do you love ME ? Do you really love ME more than yourself ? Will you give up your comforts to be like ME if I ask you ??

    • “ You, My children are on the brink of great change. You are on the precipice of great extremes of good and evil. You are heading into unchartered territory, and beyond this lies eternity. Great evil is coming, but where the enemy does pervade the land, so will My glory be poured out. You are hanging on the edge of eternity and all that needs be shaken will be shaken. I am shaking My church loose of it’s structure and a form of religion that has no power. At the same time is growing a totally apostate church who call themselves by My name and even use the name of My Son…but they do not KNOW HIM. There is an EXTREME generation coming forth that will be transformed by My light and GLORY, and there will be a destruction of the PRETENSE that has shrouded My children, and those caught up in the darkness of this world who are called to New Life in ME. I will rip the veil of covering from off the nations. I will remove the spiritual blindness on those whose hearts are changeable – on those who are called to be in ME. But know there is an evil army arising also. They have no conscience about the evil they do. They have seared consciences and will not turn from their wickedness. You must be able to know the difference and be free from any unsanctified mercy that would make you vulnerable to their wickedness. When I tell you “DON’T TOUCH THAT ONE” – I mean it ! DO NOT TOUCH THEM. If you do, you are rebelling and it will leave you open to the demonization desired upon you by the enemy. When I say walk away…walk AWAY ! When I say, that one is reprobate, and will not change, then you must listen. Do not be pulled into mercy I do not give out. On the other hand, I will at this hour pour out GREAT GRACE upon all… Some of them will even be astounded by their own attitudes, because they don’t realize they’ve been bound by demons. When grace is poured out, it will alter their ability to say yes to ME. You won’t have to waste your time in explaining things, because the Most Holy Spirit will be with you in POWER in such a way that HE will suddenly change that person in an instant, their eyes will be opened and all things will become NEW to them. And I will pour out that grace in you as well to overcome all that has opposed ME in you. Chains will be broken off of all those who are desiring freedom ! I will , I WILL, I WILL SURELY DELIVER ALL WHO WANT IT ! Nothing will stop the flow of My Spirit as He pours out this last awakening on the earth. A GREAT HARVEST is out there. It is time. It is time. It is time for harvesting. I am coming to many of you in visitations in the night watches and there will be an explosion of My Spirit within you that will change you mightily, to be able to walk with ME, and be and do all I want you to be and do ! Great peril is ahead, but also great POWER and an awesome outpouring of MY LOVE that will overcome DEATH.” Encounters March 9th, 2005 Thru Priscilla Van Sutphin 101
    • The Lord spoke “encounters” and then began to recall to my mind the many encounters of angels just before the birth of Jesus and after in the first part of the gospel of Luke. So as I listened He spoke… “Many of you are going to have divine encounters in the next months. It has already started in many and will continue as I have so much I want to teach you, and so much I want to do in you and through you. I am bringing to birth and I will not fail to commission each and every one I have purposed to go for ME. Angelic hosts have begun to be loosed to every corner of the earth. Awakening is on My heart and the glory of the LORD will fill the earth as the waters cover the sea. Yes there will be judgments, for when glory comes it separates. It exposes the light from the dark within a person and within society. Just as it comes, there will be commensurate signs and wonders in the earth proclaiming My glory, proclaiming My sovreignity. With what I do and how I do it, no man will have an excuse for refusing ME, though many will. You will not only encounter angels, but you will encounter the Living God in your midst and you will know My love for you as you have never known it ! I have so much in store, that you will jump for joy at all I do. Do not give in to complacency and apathy in this time of waiting. Come to ME and allow me to control the birth pangs ! Even as a woman gets restless before birthing, so many of you have become restless in your spirit, wanting union, and wanting communion with ME, yet stirred and troubled and it’s difficult for some to rest and longing is building up in many hearts. I am keen to see all that is going on in you and I will bring forth every promise I’ve given you. Do not lose hold of your hope for the enemy seeks to destroy your hope in ME breaking through for you, and to cause you to fall away into despair and discouragement. Many of those of old fell away due to impatience and wanting what they wanted NOW. So they then took up other gods to worship who would give them what they wanted. Others were not satisfied until they were able to be more independent of waiting on ME. When tested, their hearts turned away. A whole tribe was taken out of the book of life due to idolatry. Keep nurturing your hope in Me through the Word and reading those promises I’ve given to you. Encourage yourself in worship and rest in My arms of love so that I can encourage you. For some of you this seems to go against all logic. But I am wanting you to rest, even as warfare, as so many in the world are so BUSY, and too busy to bother with ME. Do not think that any time spent with me is wasted. The enemy seeks to keep you from this time of communion that I have called many of you to, so that he can abort My purposes in you. But I tell you right now, he CANNOT do that! I will speak truth to you and I will breathe My life into you and I will dispel all that the enemy has come against you with. Raise up a banner ! Dance and sing a new song to the Lord Your GOD, for I am about to do MIGHTY WONDROUS things in your midst . Rejoice and be glad for the day of 102
    • the Lord is at hand and many will come to the brightness of your rising ! Many will come and be astounded at the things I do in you. Others will be jealous that I would choose such an army of misfits and those not seemingly sophisticated enough in their eyes. But I will only give grace to the humble ! Rejoice and sing and lift your voices in PRAISE for I will RAIN down GLORY as you do ! I love you as no other loves you and I will bring you into My perfect will for your life and nothing shall by any means harm you till that plan for you is fulfilled.” Abba Rain is Coming March 11th, 2005 via Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org Just before falling off to sleep I had a vision of rain coming through the roof of my apartment, dumping puddles of water all over the place; just kept leaking and leaking. I’m on the ground floor and there is another apartment above me. I saw myself trying to get pans, buckets, to collect the water to prevent damage to the rug, and trying to stop the leaking or control how it came down, but it was impossible to stop or control it. Then the Lord when asked what He wanted to say… “ Do you hear the sound of the abundance of rain? I am coming, and with Me will I pour out the latter day rains that will flood the earth with My Spirit. Just as you could not control the rain making puddles in your apartment, you will not be able to control this move of My Spirit. It will just erupt and there will be no controlling what I want to do! Man will find himself fighting directly against ME if he tries to control or stop it! I will frustrate all attempts to do so. Though many will shut it down, those affected will leave. There will also be many who leave the church in fear because of the way I will do things. My Spirit will not be controlled in this movement. I WILL be LORD over My church. I WILL RESTORE all that the locusts have eaten, and I WILL RESTORE the FOUNDATIONS OF TRUTH ! There will be such abundance of truth and it will make some who have been walking in lies who think they believe the truth, to try to cover and resist, but they will not be able to control those who want the truth. I will make it clear to My people WHO is in charge of the church! The portion of Jacob will again preach in the church. He will rule and reign over what is His.” Jer 10:16 NKJV The Portion of Jacob is not like them, For He is the Maker of all things, and Israel is the tribe of His inheritance; The LORD of hosts is His name. [ Leonard Ravenhill said that the “Portion of Jacob” is Jesus - as the Spirit of revival in the church.] 103
    • “This flood will come as awakening, and not just to be hoarded in the church. It will start not in the church everywhere, but in the streets, in the coffee shops, in the parks and among common people. Worshippers will be leaders in this awakening. Many will be turned to the brightness of My glory and I will have an awakening that will flood the earth with My glory! No man will be able to take credit for what I do! I will startle the religious Pharisees in My church, and I will alter the face of the true church forever ! The face of the church is the heart attitudes of the people ! Know that this will not end until I come. What I start I will finish. What I call into being will NOT be aborted this time. I have been blowing a wind called “holiness” but soon will come the second wind and it will come in GREAT POWER” and you will receive healing, deliverance and great empowerment and AUTHORITY when it comes. You only have to HUMBLE yourselves before ME. I am the MIGHTY ONE OF ISRAEL and I will no longer suffer My church to shame. I will change your hearts so that you will love one another as I have loved you once again. The church will once again be as at the beginning – one that will love and protect one another, and given to HOLINESS.” Zech 14:20-21 KJV Zech 14:20-21 AMP March 15th, 2009 from “Eretz Israel” I am coming to take back the LAND of your SOUL My beloveds, and the land of all who will give themselves to ME. You cannot judge by outward appearances. Appearances are deceptive. Acknowledge ME - ask for the GRACE you need to humble yourself appropriately before ME. I will give the heart who really wants to be free it’s freedom. I will ROUT the enemy from your soul as you cry out to ME for that freedom. And as you admit to ME, the things you see in yourself, as I pour out My glory, then you will be made free to be all you want to be. But I am going WAY BEYOND all you can ask or think in those around you. You WILL see startling transformations as I pour out My Spirit in this hour. People will be in SHOCK at the things I do. People who mocked you before and doubted will be stunned into silence before ME as I pour My Spirit out through you. Do not be caught up in condemnation and doubt about yourself, or how much I love you. Do not believe the enemy’s lies that you can be disqualified ! For whom I call, I QUALIFY ! I will finish in your what I have started. I will NEVER abandon you. MY FAITHFULNESS IS FOREVER ! My LOVE ENDURES FOREVER ! The enemy is busy trying to make you think somehow you’ve blown it and will never make it. He is trying to wear you out in every way. But I WILL HAVE THE LAST WORD in each of your lives ! And you will pummel the enemy as you take the WORD and USE IT against him. He is afraid of your confidence. He is afraid if you really know how great My love is for you, then you will be effective in what you do ! SO GRASP HOLD OF MY GARMENTS, and hold on to the TRUTH of what I have told you. Encourage yourself in the WORD and in what I have spoken to you. DO NOT 104
    • FAINT. DO NOT GIVE UP ! I WILL have My stand on the earth ! And I WILL GLORIFY MY TEMPLE, which you are ! DO NOT DOUBT My goodness to you even in the midst of turmoil. It is in the darkness that you will shine the brightest !” March 18th, 2005 Circumstance will suddenly catapult many of you into the ministries. I have prepared for you before the foundations of the earth. You are a privileged generation and group of generations. Know that I AM WITH YOU TILL THE END OF ALL TIME. KNOW that I LOVE YOU and adore you and will do anything you ask in My name. Cry out for the nations ! Cry out for the church ! Cry out for your loved ones and friends and neighbors. Watch how I will answer as you bend your hearts towards ALL I love !” {Then an old song came to me, “ Lean on Me, when you’re alone, I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry on .} The Lord continued… “I am about to ERUPT & EXPLODE upon the scene - in your neighborhoods, in the marketplace, in your home and families. The SON is arising with HEALING in His wings. You will grow fat as stall fed calves! The anointing will increase immeasurably. You have no idea of the great plan I have had for you! I WILL DO MIGHTY THINGS through all who love ME! I will turn around churches who have kept Me out. I will upgrade those who have disdained My Holy Spirit, so long as their hearts have loved ME. THERE IS NOTHING that My glory cannot change ! I WILL SHOCK MANY into submission to MY WILL and purposes. THINK BIG, and ask for MY eyes to see with. HOLINESS IS MY IDEA. BUT IT IS I ALONE WHO hold the keys to death and hell. Do not judge before the time any man. Only judge as I would ask you to judge. I WILL PUT AWAY ALL DOUBT AND UNBELIEF among My own. AM I UNABLE to change anyone? Is My grace so weak and my blood so meager a gift that you think it incapable of changing the hardest of hearts? What were you before you said YES to ME ? Did you steal? Then you were a thief. Did you have an abortion? Then you were a murderer? Did you have sex before marriage? Then you were a fornicator. Did you lie? Then you were a liar. Are any of these lesser sins that I didn’t have to die for. Then why do you look at the lost as if they are strange to be so lost when the world has grown so evil ? You murder babies before they are born in astronomical numbers, and at the same time America, you wonder why the youth are killing each other. Have you not set an example before your sons and daughters of devaluing life ? Have you not taught them by example, even in MY CHURCH, that life can be just easily snuffed out if it is too inconvenient ? So why are you surprised at euthanasia and rationalization of murder that is in your streets ? 105
    • REPENT and turn that there may still be hope of restoration. I did not come into the world to condemn the world, but to SAVE IT. So do NOT look down at those who have gone the way of the world and write them off. I DON’T WRITE THEM OFF. My love NEVER FAILS. My mercies are NEW EVERY MORNING. REPENT OF YOUR OWN PRIDE and ARROGANCE and HYPOCRISY My church, for you have been weighed in the balances and found WANTING. I WILL HAVE A SPOTLESS BRIDE. And I will come NOW to set My church in order. MY GOVERNMENT HAS NO END. NOW, I will arise - Now I will make Myself known ! I will keep those who love ME, safe in My arms until your purpose here is fulfilled. Many of you are called to difficult lifestyles and I have been preparing you, so that you can teach others the TRUTH. So few know the TRUTH. So few are taught the fullness of the scriptures for they have been twisted to man’s desires and carnality. He who desires to be godly in CHRIST MUST SUFFER, I have said. Yet men have not taught this truth. They enjoy their comfort more than serving others. THIS WILL CHANGE. I have groomed an army who knows what it is to suffer for My name’s sake. And it is to THESE that I will extend GREAT FAVOR to subdue cities and nations. Do not think your suffering has been in vain, or that I have not seen your perseverance to hold on to ME. Your failures do not matter as much as your steadfastness to pursue ME. Failures can be forgiven and overcome. You have not denied ME before men, and you have struggled, so I will give to you GREAT FAVOR and ability to teach those who will come. I will extend My scepter to you and you will bring great deliverance and healing to those I send you to. Soon you will know that I truly have seen all, and I will make those who say they are Mine, but are not, to know that I have loved you.” March 19th, 2005 “I am riveted with love for My bride ! There is nothing that can take my attention away from what I am doing to perfect her beauty ! Like Esther, I have soaked her in myrrh, a symbol of suffering and rejection and pain, to bring her to death to self. And now I will pour out my perfumed oil upon her till she is so fragrant for everyone to smell and see. You will be filled to the full with MY love and transformed into a new person. People will wonder what has happened to you. Miracles will become commonplace among those who have paid the price. Believe ME when I say I love you as no other can love you. Many for years have been rejected by those around them, including being wounded in the house of their friends. The pain and suffering and affliction has worn you out in some ways. But know that the year of My vengeance has come. It is the year of My FAVOR towards all who will bend to My will and surrender completely to Me. And as I pour out My Spirit on all flesh, there will be a commensurate resistance by the enemy’s forces. He is not ignorant of the plans completely, but I will overcome, as you will overcome through the blood and the power of your testimony, and not loving your life, even unto death. Powerful days will bring powerful confrontations. You will stand before kings and rulers, but out of your mouth will come powerful testimony of 106
    • My love and grace, and whole nations will be subdued. Do not think because everything seems so glum, that I am not able to overcome. Startling miracles will happen as you put the fullness of your TRUST in ME !…. TRUTH is offensive to those who hate ME and only want their own desires fulfilled. AWAKENING will test the hearts of many within My church as I wake up the lost, and set them on fire with My love and mercy. I will break through the faulty foundation that has been in My church not based on TRUTH, but on apostate lies. I will make a stunning bride out of the remnant who seeks My face.” …..“I am pouring out an abundance of TRUTH into My vessels who are coming forth as gold, and I will pour out many other blessings of this earth, that you may share with those who are broken and downtrodden in this perilous hour. Keep in the Word so that your discernment will grow. Keep in My presence daily, that My love will be poured in again and again to refresh you. Amazing times are upon you. REACH OUT IN FAITH. Do not shrink back in unbelief. March 24th, 2005 “The power of the Holy Spirit will OVERTAKE THIS GENERATION of Youth to transform them into a mighty army ! I will NOT allow the enemy to continue to pervert the call on their lives. To train this army, I am going to need many teachers who will love them like I love them. I need spiritual parents of sorts, who will love on the youth, who will teach them right from wrong and who will encourage them to HOPE. This generation has been log-jammed with hopelessness and death. But I will overturn the culture of death, and not allow them to be robbed any more of their destinies. The spirit of insanity has been loosed through this culture of drugs and it has robbed and stolen long enough their innocence and potential. Will you be those who speak LIFE to them and LOVE them like I love them ? Will you NOT JUDGE, but just love them into repentance and speak TRUTH to them? I have need of you! I have need of those who can TESTIFY and DEMONSTRATE My love and power to them. I WILL OVERTURN all that has come against them and you, for the role I’ve called you to in this last hour. Put your trust in ME. I have done a good thing in you, though you feel devastated and dry, though you are weary and worn, I am coming to renew your souls and destroy the enemy’s strongholds. You will need to know how to destroy the strongholds of the enemy in the lives of others. You need to know what TRUTHS to speak to loose the enemy’s hold. Look to ME to tell you all you need to know. Yesterday’s methods will not work. I am DOING A NEW THING. So become dependent on ME to tell you how to help them without quenching the fire I put in them. My name will be GLORIOUS in all the earth as you step into this hour of holiness and AWE. I am about to upset the apple cart of the enemy. I will destroy his strategies against you…though the times will continue to become more and more perilous, I will 107
    • uphold you who are Mine ! As you reach out to these broken minds and bodies, I will continue to pour Myself out in you as you stay IN ME. So keep close to My heart in these times, that that spirit of insanity will not overtake you. The enemy seeks whom he may devour and destroy and the level of temptations is getting stronger. So stay in My WORD and use it against the enemy with the skill of a trained swordsman ! Do not let up in the battle. Strengthen yourselves in ME. Lay down in MY ARMS and let me love, heal and empower you ! Come aside now while you can.” March 26 th, 2005 “…My heart of love is ever looking for ways to compensate those who are Mine with blessings and revelations that will help them endure till the end. My GLORY is coming to you as you keep your hearts and eyes on ME. I am forever FORGIVENESS and My mercy endures forever for anyone who will turn to ME. Do not seek what you can hold in your hands, but what your heart and soul can hold of My love and glory ! I am transitioning you as you come into a new phase of this earth’s history. I am bringing you CLOSER to MY HEART and increasing the glory, increment by increment till you are filled to the full with My love and peace in your hearts. The times will only get more perilous and your CONFIDENCE needs to be IN ME. Not in your money, not in your house, not in your job, not in your own strivings. I am a GOD OF RECOMPENSE. It is up to me to deal with the wicked. Pray ! For the fervent prayers of a righteous man or woman, boy or girl, avail much ! TURN the WORSHIP up to HIGH PRAISES. Sing and dance and make melody in your hearts to the LOVER OF YOUR SOUL ! I AM with you even to the end of this world. For escalation continues and there is much change and lawlessness on the horizon. KEEP YOUR EYES ON ME. KEEP IN THE WORD. EAT the WORD and hold it close in your heart and mind. LIVE THE WORD. Forsake the cares of this world and put ALL your trust in ME. I will lay the enemy waste though the mountains fall and the seas roar, I will keep you in the palm of My hand as you REMAIN IN ME. ABIDE in ME and I will abide in you ! Do not grow weary. REST, and do not strive. TRUST in ME with all of your heart and lean NOT on your own understanding. Keep oil in your lamps for your LORD is at hand!” March 29th, 2005 “I am the God of GLORY and I am imparting to My chosen beloveds a greater measure of authority. I will not do this before I cleanse them of all the pride and pain. I will pour out a mighty measure of My love and joy, My peace and power as I break the chains of oppression. Then your words will BECOME LIFE in a more awesome way. If you were to receive this now without cleansing, then you would use that power in an evil way out of immaturity and selfishness. People can die when you curse them without being made whole. When I do this mighty thing, there will be a separation that occurs. It will be like the separation that occurs in making butter. The fat floats to the top surface and 108
    • can be skimmed off. It separates. The fat is actually lighter, but in your lives, the pride and pain make you heavier. They cause depression, sickness, and all kinds of oppression. But as I skim off the fat, and exorcize demons from your life, and fill you with My GLORY, all that is evil will be released and YOU will even feel lighter. Your JOY will be inexpressible in proportion to what I have done. Know that I show no partiality. Do not judge your brother and sister. My plan is to renew everyone that will bow to Me. My plan is much bigger than you can conceive of. Anyone who has ever made a commitment to ME will be challenged and give a choice to receive or not. Your discernment and all that I’ve given to you will INCREASE. LOVE will be poured in where there has been fear and bondage. I will make a pure and holy bride! Come to My heart now, and lay down your life and ask of ME, and you will see great change. I am here for you always ! There is nothing I won’t do to help you change into My likeness, if that is your goal. I am a GOOD FATHER Who gives good gifts to My children. Just as you are proud of your children, I am proud of you. Just as you delight in seeing your sons and daughters, I delight in you, and I delight just being there in you. I don’t get tired of you nor do I get impatient when you don’t respond as I wish. I am hurt, as you would be hurt. But I am forgiving and ever loving to you. Nothing can drive you away from My heart save renouncing My Son. Come before My throne of GRACE and ask for help, expecting to receive ! If you don’t expect, then you will not receive. Some of you have had such broken expectations that unbelief has filled your hearts and souls, and you no longer ask much. You pray less, worship less, trust less. But I REMAIN THE SAME. I AM FAITHFUL. And I still love you and want for you the BEST. I Am your Resource of all you need. You have but to spend time with Me, in My presence, and I will make your heart new. I will share My heart with you in ways you never thought. So cast aside all the lies of the enemy and of men who have taught you wrongly about My love. MY LOVE NEVER FAILS. My Son’s BLOOD PAID FOR THE PUNISHMENT YOU THINK YOU DESERVE. HE paid the COST so that you can fellowship with ME, and just be yourself in My presence without intimidation. I tell you now that the voice of authority I will put in you will make men tremble for their lives. When you command healing it will HAPPEN right then. Creative power and creative miracles will humble the most ardent haters of Me. This power comes through MY COMPASSION AND LOVE and walking in that love is a part of FAITH. You cannot have true faith without LOVE. Love is not MATURE instantly. It matures through your walk with ME. But what I do now will alter how many have thought and taught. If any man be in CHRIST, he is a new creation I’ve said. THAT will be true in the days after I do this. Instantly people will be saved, healed, delivered ! Even before they Get saved, they will get delivered and healed ! This will MAKE THEM WANT to get SAVED. Everything you have been afraid to do, you will now be able to do because you will UNDERSTAND how much I love you. The person who is confident in MY LOVE is a major threat to the enemy. That is why the enemy tries to steal and pervert the gospel of GRACE. 109
    • My grace is not to be trampled and taken advantage of. But it is much greater than most of the church thinks. Too many are still STRIVING and not free and not walking in that GRACE that keeps you from the strategies of the enemy. If you don’t walk in GRACE, then you are under a curse. The curse of the law, and open to all the devouring lion wants to do. Condemnation is a religious spirit issue. GRACE means forgiveness and open communication with ME; intimacy with ME always. CONDEMNATION means you are listening to the intimidation of the enemy. If you are walking in the Spirit…in FELLOWSHIP with the SPIRIT OF GRACE, then there is no condemnation. I know your make up. I know your thoughts and intents of your hearts. I AM the ALMIGHTY ONE. I am not surprised by your weaknesses. I know the roots. I AM ever ready to forgive you if your heart is wanting to change. It is when you fail to want to change, fail to care about ME that you are treading on dangerous ground. Sometimes someone is so demonized, they cannot change without getting delivered. Sometimes the pain is so bad, and has been there for so long, that it has taken years to get free. THOSE days will soon be over. WHAT HAS BEEN STOLEN FROM MY CHURCH WILL NOW BE RESTORED. THE DAYS OF THE LOCUSTS ARE OVER ! I WILL HEAL AND EMPOWER MY TRUE CHURCH, AND THERE WILL BE FREEDOM TO THE CAPTIVES. I am releasing a tide of TRUTH, and LOVE that will heal her and cleanse her from all unrighteousness. EXPECT CHANGE. EXPECT CHANGE of CHARACTER. EXPECT SUDDENLIES. EXPECT and you will RECEIVE. REJOICE DAUGHTER OF ZION FOR YOUR KING COMES TO YOU NOW and all things will become NEW… I AM DOING A NEW THING. EXPECT THE SINNER TO BE CONVICTED. EXPECT THE LAME TO BE HEALED. EXPECT THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN TO OPEN. TIME IS SHORT, AND THERE IS MUCH HARVESTING TO BE DONE ! I LOVE YOU AND ADORE YOU, MY PRECIOUS JEWELS ! MY HEART IS FASCINATED BY THE LOVE YOU SHOW TO ME. EVERY TIME YOUR HEART TURNS TOWARD ME I AM SO EXCITED TO HEAR FROM YOU ! I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR TALKING TO ME, JUST AS A LOVER WOULD. Do you remember the excitement of FIRST LOVE ? This is what I am wanting to RESTORE in you. ASK and you shall receive !” April 7th, 2005 Father said, “ Rites of Passage but to spell it rights” As I was contemplating the second verse above, and the meaning of godless or profane person, I saw a vision of a foot, as if trying with these boots on to try and push open a door that was slightly above ground, as if to wedge it open. Then the boot was struggling to force it open but it would not open. Then Father spoke: 110
    • “Those who have RIGHTS of passage to My kingdom have it through entering into relationship with ME and accepting what My Son Jesus did on Calvary. There is no other way. Why was Esau denied his inheritance? Why did he so easily give up his rights? For the needs of his stomach, and because he was only concerned with himself. He did not value the inheritance until he realized the imminence of his father’s death and the importance that it was now at that time. Many of My own have no concept of the imminence of My return and the importance of their inheritance in Christ. They have been sold a doctrine of demons that makes the BLOOD of My Son cheap, and not all that precious. They have no conscience about throwing away their inheritance. So when troubles will come, they will easily give up their rights of inheritance to heaven and My presence, because they have never tasted it, or out of FEAR for their lives in this world. MONEY will mean more. THINGS will mean more. RIGHTS in this world will mean more than ETERNAL rights that they cannot see, touch or feel NOW. You must rescue many out of this maze of lies they have believed to save many who have no idea of the value of the inheritance that is available through Jesus and His BLOOD. That is why I made a spectacle of it in the Passion Mel made ! Some thought it too bloody. That is because it WAS a very bloody event. It was barbaric. It was horrible. It was bloody. Some think nothing of eating raw meat, full of the blood, when I have said, the LIFE is in the BLOOD. Yet you call yourself a culture that values LIFE. Why then do you then drink the blood of animals ? There were only three things required of new believers in the new testament – to abstain from sexual immorality, to not eat food sacrificed to idols, and to not eat meat with blood in it. Why is this common now ? Because of the growing violence of society. In ages past, things were different. Now all things are “OK.” [ As the Lord said this, I thought OH LORD, they are gonna think I’m whacko now or cultic but I knew He was speaking truth] You have rights that no other being has rights to as children of GOD. You have rights to the throne of GRACE. You have rights to access My heart, My emotions, My thoughts and My will. You have rights to prosperous lives. You have rights to share in My suffering, so that you will grow in MY COMPASSION. You have rights to have angels help you in ministering wherever you are. YOU have rights to protection so long as you walk according to the Spirit and not the flesh. But of course so few walk according to the Spirit ALL the time, so you experience many digressions in availability of “rights”. In order to access these rights, you have to lay down all YOUR earthly rights - TO LIVE WITH CHRIST, YOU MUST DIE WITH CHRIST FIRST ! This has not been taught, nor has been taught the preciousness of the CROSS, and bearing YOUR CROSS DAILY. So that is why many are stumbling and not able to have victory in their lives. The inconsistency has caused confusion and doubt and skepticism to grow, along with unbelief. They can’t understand why they aren’t living “abundant 111
    • life.” They have no paradigm for suffering with ME. IT has not been taught that abundant life includes suffering WITH ME. YET IT IS CLEAR in the WORD. Those who will benefit the most in the days ahead are those who have the right access, because they have the right doctrine in respect to RIGHTS. They will pass through the door of LIFE and access to the KINGDOM. They do not count their lives as anything, but have given up their rights that they might obtain a more perfect reward !” Acts 15:28-29 NKJV For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things: 29 that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell. Rev 12:10-11 NKJV And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Re: Paul the apostle Acts 9:16 NKJV For I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name's sake." 2 Tim 3:12 NKJV Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. APRIL 12, 2005 Then I saw a vision of white doors opening and closing wildly in heaven and a perception of spirits going out from those doors on assignments from the Throne of God. They left like streaks of light as they went. Then His voice again saying… “I will open doors that no man can shut ! I will close doors for many who thought they could go their own way. Then doors will open for others who have been shut out. Answers to prayers are increasing as worship throughout the world is increasing.” Then I perceived musical notes ascending in the air up into the sky towards heaven from all over the earth. As they went toward the throne of God, they produced a sound that seemed to be coordinated with worship in heaven. I don’t know how I know this - just know it. Then I saw angels dispatched to answer the many requests coming to the altar of incense to GOD. And again they left like streaks of light. Swirls of light proceeding from the throne of God – glories being dispatched through God’s messengers. Then I saw like warrior angels coming toward the thrones of God. They were powerful looking and stern. And I wondered what they would be doing. They were given huge packages wrapped in bows, like birthday or Christmas gifts. Obviously I was seeing something symbolic. But I wondered that these were given to warrior angels. So I’m asking the Lord, why are these given to them ? He answered… 112
    • “These are for My apostles in training. They have suffered and gone through much, but now, they will be commissioned for the work that is ahead. These are surprise packages will all arrive just at the time I have ordained. Only these angels can deliver them for there is much opposition to these ones in the spirit realm. The enemy has hoped to kill them, and defeat them from their assignments. Even now there is an intense battle in the heavenlies, all over the earth, for even the earth is groaning and demonstrating the times is short. Suddenly, they will break through and all will begin.” “Worship and do not strive for it is a time of closeness and impartation in which I seek to bring healing and restoration to those who have endured so much. Rest and seek My face, for I am close to you. It is definitely a tight walk I have you walking with ME. I will not allow the enemy to defeat you, for I love you and have seen all his strategies. I will disarm him and his grip on your lives and destinies. Do not strive , but just worship ME in the beauty of holiness. I will pour out My love and grace and you will be freed. I will answer your prayers and groanings and the response time will be quicker as awakening is being ushered in. I love you SO much and I will soon make you My jewels ! I will enable you to ride on the high hills of the earth ! ” April 17th, 2005 I have something to tell you about your family, those who have resisted bowing their knee to Me, will soon be apprehended. Do not give up on them. Do not give up on what seems impossible. Although many will not bend, many will bend to ME. And I know who they are. I will give you revelation and help you in prayer to be effective in how you pray for them if you just ask Me. I know the deep seated doubts and fears. I know the rationalizations they have believed. And I will break down every argument. Walk in FAITH and CONFIDENCE that I am ABLE to do abundantly more than you can think or ask. WORSHIP ME in the beauty of holiness and WATCH what I will do ! I will move as you walk in FAITH without doubt ! Hold on to your confidence and do not allow doubt to take hold ! I also said “ a little child shall lead them” and NOW there will be release to your children of dreams and visions, callings and a measure of revelation that has been unheard of in days past for I AM RESTORING all that the canker worm has eaten. I am RESTORING all that the palmer worm has stolen! I WILL HAVE A GLORIOUS BRIDE! Draw near to ME, and I will draw near to YOU!” April 22nd, 2005 The good news is that I am going to overcome the lies and the apostasy with My power and love ! I have a plan to RESTORE. And when I say RESTORE, RESTORATION begins ! My Word is LIFE ! I will RESTORE MY CHURCH to what it was in the beginning and even more, so that the world will have NO EXCUSE for their unbelief ! Am I One Who desires for any to perish ? NO ! I desire that all men would come to the truth. But the problem is that men love sin more than Me. Those who hate ME will reject the truth. Do not think that I will continue allowing complacency and apathy in My church to reign ! I AM EL GIBOR ! I AM Jehovah Sabaoth – the Lord of Hosts 113
    • and nothing will deter My power and love from being poured out and to bring RESTORATION. IT IS WRITTEN and it will be done !” Soar With Me April 26th, 2005 Via Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org “Drifting away is not an option for those called to intimacy. It is only through diligence and violence that wars are won. Pressing in to ME, is the call now. Time is of essence. Surety is promised to all who will turn their hearts to ME now in this hour. I am not an ogre, nor am I slouch, so I ask you to press into ME without striving, without trying hard, but just being - Resting in Me. Just come and be silent before ME. Lay your head on My shoulder! The Lord Your God is about to RISE and LIFT up high the Name of all Names!” [ I had a vision of an eagle as He said this - taking off from it’s nest and soaring. ] As I arise to make Myself known, I will arise over you and My glory will be seen upon you ! The Word will be written on your heart and mind and I will call all things to memory that are needed to fight in the days ahead. I will make you My strong warriors to go forth in LOVE and in MERCY, in GRACE and in the power of MY MIGHT. Those who depend on their own might will be lowered and humbled till they repent. My love will be poured out in unprecedented measure to enable you to withstand all the things that are coming upon the earth. Do not think it my desire to leave anyone out. I know your concern for your families and children. I know which hearts will turn and which will not. I came to bring a sword, I said. Members of your own families in some cases will report you to authorities to try and have gain for themselves. Prepare your hearts in communion with ME so that I may give you specific instructions each day. Grow in dependence on ME and keep in the WORD. The WORD is life to your body and healing to your soul. It is your defense system. What kind of army would go to war without a defense system? I will level every mountain that lifts itself up against Me. I will raise up every valley. I will RESTORE MY CHURCH ! Be still, and know that I am GOD. Do not strive. Just come to ME and allow ME to touch you and speak to you. I LOVE YOU MY BRIDE ! NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH ME. Together we will fly and soar as eagles. I will not leave My bride alone EVER. I am a devoted Lover ! I will not abandon you. This is your finest hour My love ! Truth will prevail over deception. Love will prevail over death and destruction. Healing will be effortless as I come and demonstrate My love and glory to the nations ! I am raising up RADICAL LOVERS for My Kingdom among the youth and young adults who will lay down their lives and live only for ME. Dependency on ME is your greatest asset. I AM the Vine, you are the branches. Apart from ME, you can do nothing. 114
    • Keep going My beloveds ! Don’t give up just before I break through ! Hold on to what you can hold in your heart, not in your hands !” From: April 27th, 2005 “I AM the FOUNTAIN of LIVING WATERS and I am bubbling up, like Yellowstone geysers, I will well up in YOU and I will explode inside of you, and You will obey Me because you will be FILLED with My love and power when I do My mighty work. Until then, you must depend on ME to lead and guide you. At that point, you will want to obey and you will not go back to the old man. You will walk in NEW LIFE and GLORY will fill you up and burn off all the chaff. You will be a NEW MAN or WOMAN, BOY or GIRL! All will change. ALL THINGS WILL CHANGE. The world will know that I have loved you! Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess eventually that Jesus Christ alone is LORD. I will bring down the gods of clay, stone and wood. People will discard their idols when they see My power working through you ! They will be ASTOUNDED and SHOCKED by what I do in you ! WAIT FOR ME ! I know you have waited already many of you a long time. It is just a bit more, and surely I will come to you, and no more will they laugh at My name ! Those that do will be reprobate and those that WILL NOT CHANGE. Low, I am with you ALWAYS, even unto the end of all time. I AM WITH YOU MY BELOVEDS. DON’T think I have gone anywhere. I LIVE INSIDE YOU. TRUST the anointing within you. CAST OFF ALL DOUBTS ! REST and REJOICE in ME. I WILL COME AND MAKE ALL THINGS NEW !!!” MAY 3rd, 2005 “ I know all that has come against My church and the world over the years. I know what the canker worm has eaten, but I have promised to RESTORE all that has been stolen and to RESTORE MY PEOPLE and TRANSFORM them into a purified bride ! I am not slack concerning My promises, nor am I IMPOTENT to execute them. However the means by which I do so, may be above your thinking of how I might do it. The ways of God are not simple, nor are they to be speculated about. I do nothing without telling it to My prophets. And much has been spoken through those who are speaking for Me, and not just through their own filters of resentment and bitterness that has prepared many for the times to come. But nothing but My SPIRIT can really prepare you for all that is ahead. I am filled with righteous indignation for the deceptions within My church and without. I am filled with righteous indignation over the pain and unjust sorrow and suffering that has led many to despair and hopelessness. AND NOTHING will stop ME from executing MY DIVINE WILL in the lives of those I love. NOTHING will keep ME from executing MY WILL for those I have called according to MY PURPOSES. Sorrow may endure for a night, but JOY comes in the morning. I will not relent till MY will is accomplished.” 115
    • [ And suddenly I had this revelation of the apostles in the garden and how they were worn out, and fell asleep, even though He had cautioned them to pray with Him an hour. But it didn’t stop the LORD from accomplishing what He had to do. It didn’t stop Him from executing His will, or purposes in them, even when they failed to stand up against adversity. He knew their frame, that they were but dust as it says in scriptures. He had prayed FOR them. So they eventually all came through to fulfill the call on their lives. This made me cry, because so often we think somehow if we don’t act perfectly enough, that God will not come through. How many times have you heard the promises of God are conditional on this or that… yet the apostles FAILED – BUT HE NEVER FAILS. It is ONLY BY GRACE that we can do anything. ] The Lord continued… “ My love never fails. It is new every morning. It is never withdrawn. I will love you forever and ever ! There is nothing that can stop My intervention in the lives of those you love, or in your own life, so long as we are in relationship. TRUST IN ME. Do not trust in your efforts, or man’s efforts. TRUST IN ME ! I AM ABLE to do more than you can think or ask, just because YOU ARE MINE ! I love My children. I love you and adore you. There is nothing that will stop MY will in your life outside of outright disdain. I know that you are hurt and needful of healing and deliverance. What kind of Father would I be if I allowed an enemy to devastate you, then did nothing to help you ? I know even the hatred some of your sons and daughters have for the church because of the way they saw you treated, because of the ways they were treated. But I TELL YOU THE TRUTH, BELIEVE, that I will leave nothing untouched as I come to RESTORE MY CHURCH ! The ways and means will not always be what you expected, but I will accomplish all I’ve set out to do ! I am JOYOUS over the fact that the time is drawing closer when I will transfigure My loved ones and you will no longer struggle. You will no longer concede to the enemy, or grow weary. I will enable you by MY GRACE AND POWER to be and do all I have called you to be and do. FEAR NOT MY LITTLE FLOCK, for Your KING is coming to you, and I will right all that has been done. I will separate the wheat from the tares, and all will be accomplished in My perfect timing. Do not despair. FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT. STAND on MY WORD – MY PROMISES. Be strong in the power of MY MIGHT ! Depend on ME in all you think and do. I AM WITH YOU UNTIL THE END OF ALL TIME ! ABBA” May 7th, 2005 I am building confidence in My BRIDE in your ability to understand My love and grace for you ! I am not a harsh and abusive father. I am LOVE. My love NEVER FAILS ! I love My children and nothing in this world or in the heavens, nor under the earth can separate you from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus ! NOTHING ! NOTHING ! NOTHING can separate you from ME ! 116
    • There is so much defensive pride in the body of Christ. It is there because you don’t understand the glorious power of My love nor the fullness of the power of the CROSS. You don’t understand My GRACE to the extent you need to know it ! But I am REVEALING ! I am RELEASING UNDERSTANDING, and WISDOM, and KNOWLEDGE and REVELATION of My love and grace to you ! I am releasing you from the blockages that have kept you in bondage to lies of the enemy ! I am restoring My church , My bride. But this will bring great division between who is truly MINE, and who follows after self and the enemy. I will utterly destroy all selfishness and self will in the days ahead with the power of My love and grace. I will TRANSFORM the CHURCH and I will change completely the heart attitudes of many peoples. At the same time there will continue a harlot church that will compromise and lay down to the gods of the world. Do not think it strange My children, for I have told you beforehand all these things. As I ARISE to change things, there will be a falling away of those who retreat in FEAR of what I do now. But those who love me will arise with healing in their hearts, and the power of the CROSS to endure all hardship that will eventually come. Keep YOUR EYES ON ME !… I am releasing suddenlies. I am releasing miracles and signs and wonders in the earth and in the heavens. You will be amazed and your hearts will leap with joy as I step down to take the side of My bride ! MAY 10th, 2009 I tell you the truth, that even if the earth trembles and shakes off it’s axis, not one word of my Word will be changed. All things will be fulfilled. Be NOT AFRAID , for I have conquered the world and all the power of the evil one ! I have a big surprise for the enemy’s forces. He thinks he will be able to overthrow My plans. It has always been his strategy and the pride with which he succumbed. In ages past, he has seemingly triumphed. But in this hour, I WILL ARISE AND MY NAME WILL BE MADE GLORIOUS IN THE WHOLE EARTH ! The hearts of My children in ALL NATIONS will thrill as I come closer and closer in dwelling with You, and living in UNION with you in an even greater and more tangible way ! MAY 23rd 2005 Soon, that will change ! Soon, I will come in power and RESTORE all that has been stolen. Soon, anyone who is IN CHRIST WILL BE A NEW CREATION and you will see it and marvel ! Many will be instantly healed and delivered at the same time ! This will be quite startling for those whose doctrines have been full of untruths and half truths. And it will cause a great RUMBLING and SEPARATION in My church. Those who accept My ways, and the power of My Spirit will walk in great authority and power, but those who don’t will dry up and no longer be of any effect. A new world order is emerging whose roots are in the occult and antichrist in nature. Those who are not firm in foundations will easily fall to the lies and compromise. So strengthen the hands that hang low, and the feeble knees ! Strengthen your brothers and sisters as best you can. And 117
    • KNOW that I am coming quickly and will RESTORE all the locusts have eaten. Keep close to ME My beloveds ! Keep your eyes on ME. Keep in the Word, and in the WORD. You are IN CHRIST, and seated in heavenly places. REMEMBER THAT DAILY ! Remember Whose you are ! REMEMBER the power of your GOD to deliver and keep you. Remember how much I love you! RESTORATION is coming in powerful and startling ways. Your hearts will leap and rejoice and you will be encouraged GREATLY in your FAITH. Do not shrink back. Strengthen your inner man with the washing of the Word, and the in the PRESENCE of the HOLY SPIRIT daily. Seek FIRST the KINGDOM of GOD and His righteousness and all you need will be provided." MAY 27th, 2005 Leviathan rises it’s head in the form of Jezebel in this hour. And only if you are free from it yourself, will you be able to slay the spirit that seeks to destroy you and all who lift up MY NAME. RENOUNCE all pride, ego, vanity, arrogance and unthankfulness, discontentment, intolerance, frustration and impatience. Allow ME to be HEAD over your lives. SURRENDER the whole of your lives to ME. EVERYTHING – everything belongs to ME. You would have nothing without My blessing you. So what can you lose ? What can a man profit by gaining the whole world but losing his soul ? JUNE 7th, 2005 “ I am organizing a reunion of sorts with you My beloveds ! There was a time when man walked with me in the garden and we talked together and had sweet fellowship with one another. I sent My Son to die to restore your ability to commune with ME, but that communion has not been as full as I would like it to be. The locusts have devoured much truth in the Church of Jesus Christ. The rebellion of this age has drawn many away from the original purpose for which I died. But I AM COMING TO RESTORE a greater union with ME, and I will have a bride who will lay down her life that she might have all of ME ! ….. Yet in a time there will be more martyrdom and persecution than has ever been seen before. So I am wooing you to My side, that you may receive all you need to endure the times ahead. I will give you wisdom and strategies for the days ahead as you lie with Me and walk with Me, and talk with Me. Do not be independent ! Do not think you can do whatever you have been doing. For most of my church does NOT walk in dependence on ME. And with all that is ahead, I want you prepared. So come to me and fellowship with Me and I will give you wisdom and secrets, and I have many SURPRISES for My bride. All heaven awaits to see the sons of God manifested in the earth. JUNE 10th, 2005 I will ROAR over Zion and I will ROAR over My beloveds ! The Lord Your GOD will ROAR out of Zion and the prophets shall go forth to the nations and apostolic power 118
    • will be restored ! I have not forgotten nor ignored the prayers of My people ! I am not a man that I should lie, nor a son of man, that I should change My mind. I will RESTORE. I am a God of RESTORATION. But I will also come in fury upon those who are wicked and deceitful and who plan the demise of mankind to suit their whims and lustful desires. Be NOT AFRAID of them, for they will tremble when I do My glorious deed. They will tremble at the words of My prophets and apostles ! They will tremble when I execute My judgments ! I will be with you in adversity and I will bring you through the fire without being burned ! I AM WITH YOU ! I am working a turn around for all those who have thought they have the upper hand. You will see signs and wonders and be amazed at what I do in the days ahead. Be of GOOD COURAGE My beloveds ! Do not give in to fear ! RELEASE MY WORD from your mouths and sharpen your swords ! SHARPEN THEM and USE THEM MIGHTILY in song and praise, and in speaking truth to one another and to the LOST. SOUND THE TRUMPET in Zion ! SOUND THE TRUMPET ! For Your Lord is coming to you and I will explode inside you, destroying every work of the enemy. Come to ME while I may be found ! Hold on , for I am coming shortly. Remain steadfast in FAITH ! I AM STRETCHING YOUR FAITH so that you will remain steadfast in harsher times. Change is coming and you need endurance to run the race. You also need to change some of your heart attitudes which do not allow for kindness and love and unselfish servanthood. You will have to learn to share and to consider the other person important. I am restoring servant’s hearts in MY CHURCH ! Let go of selfishness, self-will and coldness toward the poor and down and out ! OPEN your hearts and let the King of GLORY come in, and I will change it for you ! Allow me to touch you and give you My heart of love for those around you ! If you do not help those around you, then what will you do when you need the help ? I am knitting like hearts to each other that you may help each other. “Lightening striking again” song came to mind. Lightening is a sign of God’s actions in the earth ! see prophecy: www.upstreamca.org/firenlightening.html This is the second time He has said that to me ! JUNE 15th, 2005 To those who have been willing to suffer with ME, I will restore and bless you in a mighty way. Look for your deliverance and healing, for I AM COMING and I will make a way where there seems to be no way ! I AM the GOD of the impossible ! Nothing is too hard for ME. My love endures forever and My love will conquer all that is wrong with the church ! For perfect love casts down all fear ! FAITH WILL BE RESTORED DRAMATICALLY and SUDDENLY ! So REJOICE and be glad for the Lord Your GOD is with you and reverses are in order ! I speak FAVOR to My children in this hour. FAVOR will bring you to the forefront, when you have been thought discardable by most ! I will RESTORE ! I will repair the ancient foundations ! I will, I WILL, says the Lord ! 119
    • JUNE 19th, 2005 I have a few surprises of My own for the enemy ! I have kept a few secrets to only be revealed in this time ! I have kept some things secret to keep him off guard. So come to me and I will tell you great and awesome things of which you do not know ! I am the REVEALER of SECRETS ! I am the I AM ! I know how to help you and there is nothing I won’t do for an extravagant LOVER. Pour out your heart in openness and honesty and EXPECT Me to ACT! Many of you cry out, but not many EXPECT ME to do something. People have grown tired and weary ! Those of you who KNOW ME, SPEAK OUT, and do not hold back. Don’t hide your light under a basket ! BE BOLD ! BE STRONG, FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS WITH YOU ! HOLD ON TO ME FOR THE RIDE WILL GET BUMPIER, BUT THE CLOSENESS OF ME TO YOU WILL BE AWESOME ! LIFE IS HONORED AMONG MY OWN. But life is NOT honored in society overall. It has become cheap and even valueless by many. If you don’t believe you will have to suffer for your sins, or if you believe you can try again in another life, then why would you have any impetus to change ? Many are so deluded by false religions and false ideologies that mock the TRUTH ! But I will give you KEYS and I will give you the wisdom and power to astound them – IF you will trust and depend on ME ! LIBERTY is COMING ! July 2nd, 2005 through Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org tearsofthefather@att.net I heard “ Liberty is coming” and then thoughts went back to reading Patrick Henry today on a site and the phrase, “Give me liberty or give me death !” came to mind. Then the Lord spoke: I am coming to give you the ultimate FREEDOM from all the devices of the enemy. I will remove the things that hinder you, and I want you to cry out for that liberty ! I want you to know that I’m listening for such cries of desperation in My beloveds ! I am not far off. I am a GOD close at hand. I see the pain and torment of My people. I have the perfect timing arranged for this act of LIBERTY ! Know that I am NOT negligent in My duties as many of you are. I am FAITHFUL, even when you are not able to be as faithful as you would like. I know that there are strongholds over your soul that limit your ability to be as fruitful and obedient as you would like ! 120
    • Do not give rest till it is established in your heart ! Keep on crying out ! Keep on asking and rest in your spirit to know that I have heard and am already working on the answers and I will do all that your heart desires in wanting freedom from the enemy. CLING TO ME My beloveds ! CLING TO the ONE WHO LOVES YOU AS NO OTHER LOVES YOU ! Worship Me in the beauty of holiness.

CRY OUT for those who are numbed by all that is happening ! SPEAK THE WORD and storm the gates of the enemy ! GATHER TOGETHER and PRAY and WEEP for the daughter of your people ! This nation will celebrate Independence Day, but the judgment for choosing to be independent from ME will surely come and people will be shattered for the way that it comes ! CRY OUT FOR HUMILITY ! CRY OUT FOR REPENTANCE ! CRY OUT FOR CONVICTION ! CRY OUT FOR SOULS ! CRY OUT FOR GRACE TO OVERCOME ALL THAT IS COMING UPON YOU ! CRY OUT FOR THE YOUTH OF THIS NATION ! There are evil plans already in play to indoctrinate them in evil. And the enemy has already stolen the majority of them into the world and the lusts of the flesh. He has indoctrinated them into humanism through the schools and television. Pray that the eyes would be opened and their ears would be opened. Pray that GLORY WILL FALL in AWAKENING on this nation as the next swift blow comes. OPEN YOUR MOUTHS and TESTIFY of ME in this season whenever you are in the marketplace ! But it is a time of coming aside to ME for healing and restoration. It is a time of introspection and quietness and rest, and of seeking MY FACE that you may be filled to the full with ME. I WILL RESTORE MY BRIDE and you will go forth singing and with GREAT JOY as I release the chains that have bound you. A NEW WIND IS BLOWING. The hot summer winds have come and the SON is shining on AMERICA. I have listened to the watchmen on the walls and I am bringing a wind of CHANGE. THOUGH there will be destruction from the enemy, there will be a RESTORATION in this nation of godliness amidst the turmoil and and sadness, there will come a wave of HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD in those called to MY KINGDOM ! The kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdoms of Christ. Nations will be saved in one day ! WATCH, for the season of escalation has come ! The LION of JUDAH ROARS out of HIS abode ! He will ROAR over His people and HE WILL BRING LIBERTY ! NO MORE SILENCING OF THE LAMBS ! HE WILL ROAR OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF HIS PEOPLE ! HE WILL ROAR OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF THE YOUTH OF THE NATIONS ! HE WILL GIVE VOICE to silence the enemy’s reign in the lives of others. He will show great and marvelous works to the children of men ! Signs and wonders and miraculous displays of His power will astound the masses. Hold on,HOLD ON ! BE STRONG in the power of HIS MIGHT ! 121

Some judgments I will retract if there is repentance that is sincere. Some I cannot delay any longer. YOU WILL LEARN to help each other and to love one another despite your faults and weaknesses. THE IDOLS WILL BE REMOVED that you may once again learn WHO is your Master and King. Your Redeemer draws near. Will you listen for the knock on your door ? Will you open for your Beloved ?

Ex 40:34-38 NKJV The Cloud and the Glory (Ex 13:21,22; Num 9:15-23) Then the cloud covered the tabernacle of meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. 35 And Moses was not able to enter the tabernacle of meeting, because the cloud rested above it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. 36 Whenever the cloud was taken up from above the tabernacle, the children of Israel would go onward in all their journeys. 37 But if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not journey till the day that it was taken up. 38 For the cloud of the LORD was above the tabernacle by day, and fire was over it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys. Isa 4:2-6 NKJV “ I AM to be highly sought after. I AM a pearl of great price. I AM a PILLAR of FIRE in your midst. I AM the cloudy haze of glory in the presence of WORSHIP to My Beloveds. I AM the Beginning and the End. I change NOT. I AM the same, yesterday, today and forever in eternity ! I AM Your great Hope ! I AM the EVERLASTING FATHER. I AM the All Consuming FIRE. There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed in My presence ! You will no longer be able to hide from ME soon ! THE EARTH WILL BE FILLED WITH THE GLORY OF THE LORD.” See Isa 9:2-7 NKJV 124
    • “MY ZEAL will accomplish what is in My Word. MY ZEAL – not man’s zeal ! YOU CAN DO NOTHING APART FROM ME. WHAT I DO WILL NOT BE CREDITED TO MAN WITHOUT CONSEQUENCE ! I WILL NOT ALLOW ANYONE TO TOUCH MY GLORY ! Some have the idea that that means literally. But I mean it figuratively. You are not to take credit for anything in your life when it is I Who have orchestrated your creation and all that you are and it is I Who give you the grace to do anything !!!!! It is I WHO created you, and it is I AM WHO says who shall live and who shall die. Who I AM is not clear yet to many who call themselves by My name.” See James 4:13-17 NIV “Great GRACE and GREAT GLORY are coming to earth in this hour. GREAT and PERILOUS TIMES as well. Many of you are confused by all this. Many have not been prepared, nor do they know My WORD. My WORD is unalterable. IT STANDS and does not change. You cannot change MY plans. But I will most certainly change the plans of evil men and women. I will most certainly change the plans of those who are doing their own plans and what their own heart desires. If you but YIELD to what I want - YOU WILL BE A SUCCESS ! Success is not measured by what you store up on earth, but by what you store up in heaven.” Matt 6:19-21 NKJV Lay Up Treasures in Heaven (Luke 12:33,34) " Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Ps 37:4 NKJV Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

Yield to ME as KING and LORD, as ADONAI – your Lord and Master! I am a loving Master Who only does what is best for you. Yet many are walking in unbelief of My love for you and it has cost you – this unbelief. CAST OFF the entrapment of unbelief and doubt and skepticism about my love for you!

Have I not said that if you think yourselves more highly than you ought that you walk contrary to My will ? Associate with the humble and you will do well. Avoid men of strife and anger, lusts and bitterness. Do not conform yourselves to the ways of this world and the enemy of your soul. Love YOUR ENEMIES.

Come together My children to worship and pray, and to celebrate the times coming. For I will pour out My Spirit in unprecedented ways. Wherever one or two or more are worshipping ME, I will rain down My glory ! Did I not sustain David in the Caves of Adullam ?

I will remove the candlesticks of those who persist in doing their OWN will over MY WILL. Do not marvel at the judgment coming within My house. And do not say it is the devil For I will stir up those who will execute MY JUDGMENT in MY way. PRAY that many will be spared as you repent for them. Care for your brothers the way MOSES cared for the people of ISRAEL and fasted and prayed for them ! Do not say, I am without sin, or I wouldn’t do that. You don’t know what you would do if I removed My grace from you ! Mercy is better than sacrifice and OBEDIENCE is better than sacrifice ! CRY out for those who are ignorant of their own sins. I need workers . I need those who will HARVEST and CLEAN, and TRAIN those who will come into the KINGDOM. I will use the tiniest fern, who has no sweet fragrance to give. I will use those who have been thought the LEAST OF THESE MY CHILDREN to confound the wise in their own opinions. So do not make judgments without seeking MY face and MY HEART. Martyrdom is coming to My church in greater measure in the days ahead. Will you be ready My BRIDE to stand ? Will you acknowledge MY will alone in your lives ? Will you give up your rights to your own life and live as My Son did, doing only the Father’s will ? Will you give up your rights to convenience and fame, and riches to receive what is most precious in the Kingdom ? Will you lay down YOUR AGENDA and ask ME for what I WANT ? Lay aside all your preconceived notions. Ask ME for WISDOM and I will give it ! BUT you must ask to receive.

I will have a people unto Myself that will only look to ME for direction and guidance, and for all they need to do it. I AM THE RESOURCE. Listen carefully as I say it again…I AM YOUR RESOURCE of everything you need. STOP looking to man to fulfill what only I can fulfill ! Listen for the sound of MY VOICE. If you quiet yourself you will hear. If you keep in the word and worship, and actually DO the Word, then MY GLORY will be your rear guard. If you stretch out your hand to feed the hungry and take in those who are outcast, and truly seek out the one who is lost, then you will ride on the high hills of the earth. 128
    • My church has been starving or only eating cookies for too long ! Cookies are sweet but they cannot sustain you without malnourishment. You need to eat MEAT. Many of My sheep have grown ANEMIC in the WORD because they are still drinking milk and not eating meat. You cannot grow the way you need to if you only sip on milk, for you are no longer babies. You are adults and need to be fed adult food…. th From: AUGUST 29 , 2005 “Leprosy and Restoration” …”Pride is the source of much disease in the body of Christ ! There are so many things that allow it to seep into the body…like an infestation of gangrene or leprosy till the whole body is rotted and full of sores. In the midst of this condition as it is now, I am about to shine MY LIGHT ! Just as the ozone treatment kills bacteria and suffocates the bad cells that live in darkness, so My LIGHT will drive away the darkness. And as the oxygen gives life to every cell in your body, so will My light – My glory illuminate the areas of your soul till you are completely walking in the light of My glory. My light will be like a heat seeking missile searching out the depths of your soul. Great light is dimmed by just a bit of darkness, just as darkness is illumined by just a small bit of light. It is important for you to not fall back into pride, once it is removed from the body. Otherwise even greater darkness will seek out that area that has been evacuated. And then it becomes that much more difficult to eradicate. I speak to you truthfully that your heart will break to see the reaction in some people to My light that I send. My glory is awesome and fearful in it’s power. The FEAR OF THE LORD will be restored to the church. The lost will also react strongly in the presence of MY light in you ! People will have demons manifest, and you will suddenly see them change before your eyes. Do not be surprised when this happens. I am turning up the power till just your shadow cast will bring healing to broken and diseased bodies and souls ! The lame will walk, the blind will see, the dead will rise when I speak through you. Life and death are in the power of the tongue so that is why I have tried to get you to clean up your mouths. Many of you would kill people with your words if I let you have this power without first cleansing you with the FIRE of My presence. My WORD is like a hammer that breaks into pieces the rock of most stubborn resistance, and like a fire that consumes anything that cannot withstand the test ! I will do a thorough work of purging the foundation of My temples. NOTHING shall by any means thwart Me from doing a complete work in purifying of My BRIDE.”…. AUG 30th 2005 The Lord began to speak: “ The winds will continue to blow until there is a more corporate response to the suffering of others in this nation, and an eradication of apathy and complacency in My CHURCH. For years I have called out to you to consider the needs of the poor, to 129
    • have mercy on those less fortunate than you are. I have asked you to seek MY HEART and My opinions of others, that you would begin to reach out. Now, unless you do for others what you would have them do for you, you will not eat yourself. You will not have what you need. Those who have learned the lessons will be moved to seats of authority. Those who have been willing to come close to MY HEART and MY COMPASSION will be entrusted with what is needed to care for others. Those who have been uncaring and complacent will learn what it is to WANT. And will thereby learn to be different in the days following. I am not an ogre, nor am I complacent about the suffering of mankind. I have never wished to allow suffering. But man is stubborn in his ways, and despite warnings, My own people have ignored the plight of others. Now you WILL become what I want you to ! You will learn compassion and empathy. You will understand My heart. Many of you will be asked to sacrifice things you thought were your own. Many of you will have to consider what you love most – Me or your things. Many of you will have to give up the things of this world if you want to live for the things of the next world. YOU are strangers here. This is not your home. Many have not cared about the orphans and abused in other nations. Many have, and will be promoted. To those who have, more responsibility will be given. And to those who have NOT been willing to forsake the ways of the world, they will be demoted and come to understand the TRUTH of My Word. For those of you that I promote, do not forget your former days ! Do not yield to the same temptations to self that your predecessors have ! For in this hour, the mighty will fall, and those who have humbled themselves will be exalted! Just as the waters have overtaken many in the gulf, I will pour out My Spirit on this dry and barren land! The revival you have awaited will come in the one anothers. I will bless compassion. I will bless empathy and generosity. I will not bless those who withhold what needs be given. For my storehouse is not bankrupt. You cannot outgive me. I own the cattle on a thousand hills. I am Your RESOURCE and My resources are unending. This earth is groaning, and you will see the birth pangs all over the earth. My people who are called by My name are more accountable for what they know to do when they don’t do it! Those who have built their own kingdoms, will be undone. It is MY DOING. Do not blame the devil. Do not blame men. Idolatry will be destroyed in this nation and a new foundation will be built. Do not regard the nay-sayers and the wicked who curse me, and desire to lead you away from all that is holy. Do NOT store up treasures on earth where moth and rust decay, but store up treasures in heaven. I am bringing forth jewels out of the storms. I am fashioning a people who will serve me voluntarily in the days of power. Those who have not cared about the hungry will now know hunger. Those who have cared about the hungry will have all they need, and more, to help others. LEAD THEM TO THE ROCK. And those who refuse to fall on the ROCK, will be dismayed ! I AM WITH YOU IN THE STORMS. Listen for the still small voice. I will do anything for the radical lovers.” 130

Greater is HE that is in you, than he who is in the world ! GREATER things, I said to you, you would do, because I left this world to go back to My Father. But the greater things come to them who seek My face, not just my hand. Who is it that really wants more of ME? Where is the one who will sit at My feet ? This is the one to whom I will pour out My glory, and to the One whose heart LONGS for ME, even when they can’t be with me, their heart is still fixed on MINE ! Get ready to receive glory. Get ready to be drawn in to the place of supreme holiness. For I AM HOLY, and He who desires to live as I lived must walk in holiness. I said to ‘BE HOLY AS I AM HOLY’ ! I am removing the areas of compromise in your life, that you may receive what I have to pour out into you ! He who shares in My suffering will share in My glory I said. The suffering is for a moment, an hour, a day, a month, a year, or a season, but it works eternal glory in you ! It works holiness to those who are called. It works perseverance. It works humility so that when you see others suffering, you do not ignore them, but you do what I would do ! To the one who shows no mercy, no mercy will be given. To the one who shows mercy, he will receive mercy when he needs it. To the one who loves, love will be shown. Sowing and reaping is a law of the Kingdom. But, I have come to give you what you don’t deserve ! You did not deserve to be freed from sins. You did not deserve life when you murdered with your words those around you; when you hated, when you didn’t forgive. But yet I have forgiven you greatly all that you have done, by My BLOOD shed for you ! No My beloveds, I do not anymore only give what you deserve, otherwise you would all be dead. The law doesn’t change, my word doesn’t change. And My mercy endures forever, yet to the one who has been heartbroken beyond repair, and reacts in pain and rejection, I will show that one great grace, for I know what he has endured. Mercy triumphs over judgment ! I AM the ONLY TRUE JUDGE ! I know what is in the heart of a man ! I alone know ! So look to ME for how to pray, what to say, what opinion you should have of another. SEEK MY FACE and I will show you that you may pray, not that you may gossip, or judge. James 2:13 NKJV For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. 131
    • John 2:24 NKJV But Jesus did not commit Himself to them, because He knew all men, 25 and had no need that anyone should testify of man, for He knew what was in man. “ I am trying to clean up your mouths because with your mouths you speak both blessing and cursing and it should not be so among you ! If you want authority, then you must put away the pointing of the finger. When I said to judge it is to determine the origins of what a man is speaking from or doing things from, what spirit is in a man. I did not mean for you to sit as judge and executioner! If you want mercy for the mistakes you make, then give mercy to others. If you want to be treated kindly when you fail, then give kindness to others. It will make them wonder how you could love that much anyone ! Remember that MY LOVE leads to REPENTANCE ! If a leader has faults, then PRAY for him. If a leader refuses to receive correction and will not change, and you have prayed and spoken truth to him, then you are not under obligation to side with him any longer. What does light have to do with darkness ? I’ve told you in My word that if you side with someone in their sin, then you SHARE in the sin. Yet my people prefer to be as prostitutes, making themselves whores with the unbelieving, the greedy, the murderous, the adulterous and perversion of men that are in leadership, rather than obeying ME WHO IS THE FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATER. They serve prostitutes and align themselves with them, then wonder when things don’t go right in their lives. Soon the time of Glory is at hand, and I want all of My children to be able to receive all I have for you. My love will be poured out from on high. My river of honey will explode inside of you and you will be changed. Know that when this happens many who were not right in their heart will weep and sob for the sins they have committed. Remember that YOU are not the judge. Do not kick at the goads. I am the Mighty One of Israel. Nothing is impossible with ME. Pray now for your own souls ! Pray for those who have turned from righteousness and followed after self, and greed, envy and self seeking, that they may be spared when I pour out My glory. Remember that the priest who stood before the Holy of Holies would not live if they walked in sin and entered in ! Ananias and Sapphira experienced the same for a lie and deceit. Seek ME NOW, that you might be cleansed in your heart. Desire earnestly the best gifts Paul admonished you, but one thing I said through him, was that there was something greater. LOVE is the greatest. To learn to LOVE ME with your WHOLE HEART and soul, strength and mind is the first commandment. To love one another as you love yourself is the other greatest commandment. Some of you don’t love yourself because you misunderstand MY LOVE. So you can’t love your neighbor as yourself. You find it hard to forgive or endure hardship. You find it difficult to pray for others who are difficult in their behavior because you don’t understand the supremacy of My love for you ! The FATHER loves you as He loves ME ! The FATHER LOVES YOU AS HE LOVES ME. THE FATHER LOVES YOU AS HE LOVES ME ! EVEN WHEN YOU FAIL. EVEN WHEN YOU AREN’T PERFECT. 132
    • Even as you love your own children when they aren’t perfect – the Father loves you ! You are loved because you love ME ! Nothing can take His love from you. When you fail, REJOICE, and worship ME. When you fail, ask for forgiveness and forgive yourself, and praise ME that you failed ! Praise ME that I am helping you to overcome all that has come against you. GRACE to GRACE you are moving forward. Glory to glory is being poured out as you enter My presence. STOP CONDEMNING YOURSELVES AND STOP CONDEMNING OTHERS. Those who are on the outside are already condemned. Not everyone moves through healing at the same pace so have patience with one another and PRAY for one another as you would for a sister and brother ! I AM WITH YOU AND I SEE ALL YOU DO ! I AM ABOUT TO BREAK CHAINS OF SELF HATRED ! I AM ABOUT TO BREAK CHAINS OF REJECTION AND SELF REJECTION, OF REBELLION AND HATRED OFF OF those who have been greatly abused and bruised ! I HAVE NEED OF YOU ! AS I REMOVE YOUR CHAINS, REACH OUT TO THOSE LIKE YOU I SEND TO YOU ! HAVE CONFIDENCE IN MY LOVE FOR YOU ! REJOICE !

I am releasing MIRACLES and healings and I will do mighty signs and wonders in the earth. GREATER THINGS YOU WILL DO ! FAITH is a key, as much as holiness, so reach out to ME, and I will embue you with all you need to be BOLD as a LION !

Speak tenderly to My people !” Sept 26th, 2005 The Lord continues… “ I am not through passing my rod over America. I will fulfill the scriptures as written. You will go to the nations, but some will go in bondage due to civil strife, and economics. Many will go because you have been willing to bear the burdens of others and have volunteered in this the day of My power, and I will take you there even quite supernaturally. Others will go on business as business here will not be as lucrative. Some will go under strife because they have been unwilling to yield to me and have taken advantage over others instead of nurturing others. Will you kick against the goads My people or will you stretch out your hands to the needy and broken and do My will ? Will you become passive again ? Will you think only of your own needs anymore ? Or will you learn to love one another ? Learning to 133

In the midst of chaos and turmoil I see many who I am very proud of reaching out and helping and sacrificing their own comforts to help others. This is the way to show the world that a nation founded on Christian principles will rise up out of the ashes of brokenness and destruction and praise their God. I hear the testimonies of those on TV saying, “PRAISE GOD” and sharing the TRUTH of Who I am ! I am proud of those who in such dire circumstances have been bold in proclaiming my name ! I am proud of those who endure great affliction yet follow ME. I will arise in this nation and you will see a third great awakening as you have never seen before ! Continue to reach out ! Continue to pray and do not go backwards to comfort and apathy. There will be a turn around soon in all that has been. Defeatism will be broken, and selfishness, complacency will be broken in my own. The dark will keep getting darker, but you will shine like the stars in the heavens ! You will grow fat as stall fed calves – very oily, very healthy in ME. I am transitioning many of you for what is coming. Listen for the still small voice in your time of prayer. WAIT on Me, that you might receive your instructions. Know that your tears are accomplishing much in the heavenlies and your worship will cause a raining down of glory !” The White Dress Sept 28th, 2005 via Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org I woke up seeing a vision of a woman’s back, zipping up a white dress, like a bridal dress. Then I saw two large hands and a man’s form standing behind her with his hands placed on her back on both sides of the zipper, as if assuring her, and at the same time holding it in place. I felt the Lord say… “ I am finishing up the new dress for My Bride. I am giving her pure white garments to wear. She is adorned in My glory that all may see her beauty. 134
    • Though she has been bedraggled and disdained by many, now I will finish the final touches and embue her with My love and power so that all the world will know that she is Mine ! They will know that she has spent time in My presence ! They will know because she will reflect My character and My power both. Know that the things I am doing now in the earth will produce a most beautiful bride who loves and cares for others. Have I not said, that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Lord will raise up a standard against him? The enemy has come down spreading his filth in all directions, but I have a plan too. I am JEALOUS for My Bride. I will not allow her to continue to wallow in filth. I will revive her heart and heal her wounds that others have not cared for. I will do all I’ve said I will do. I will not leave you comfortless. Remember My beloved ones that this is NOT your home ! Heaven is your home. I am your HOME. In this world you will have troubles, but know that I have overcome the world and broken the power of the enemy. You will fulfill all I’ve destined for you, and when that is done, then only will you come home to ME. Evil men continue to conspire and pride is rampant, but I AM with you and I will sustain you and fight beside you as you enter into the final war with the enemy ! He has come down with great wrath, knowing his time is over and wanting to destroy all he can. Do not be PRAYERLESS ! Keep your lamps trimmed and supplied with the oil of the Holy ONE. Keep in communion with Me. Stay beloveds close to ME in this hour. You need My advice. You need My discernment in all things pertaining to all around you. Do not go days without speaking to me ! How would you who are married feel if your mate didn’t talk to you in days ? Would you not feel neglected ? How do you think I feel when you go day after day without stopping to take time for communion with ME, Who is your Husbandman ?” My advice to you is to buy from Me gold refined by fire, that you may be rich; and white clothing, so that you may be dressed and not have to be ashamed of your nakedness; and eye salve to rub on your eyes, so that you may see ! As for Me, I rebuke and discipline everyone I love; so exert yourselves, and turn from your sins! Here, I am standing at the door, knocking. If someone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he will eat with Me. Rev 3:18-19 CJB “ Know that my heart is not to hurt you. I am a God of restoration, not destruction. But the world is escalating into wickedness, and I cannot stand by and see men continue to oppress without consequence, nor can I stop what will bring the culmination of all time. Know that I love you and my heart is ravished for My bride. Come to Me and let me hold you and heal you and bring to you all that I am !

There is a beginning flow of waters, rolling over the earth, in the midst of the trouble, and judgments on evil, there is a roar of many waters beginning. It will flow down from the throne of God into the highways and byways, into the fields and rivers of the earth; flowing to every woman and man, boy and girl, till the earth is flooded with the knowledge of the Lord Your GOD ! Elijah saw the beginning of rain, like a fist rising on the sea. Again you see, My fist is rising out of the waters, and I will pound down every mountain and hill that is raised against ME, till they are beaten into valleys. People will be STARTLED into submission to Your Lord and Savior JESUS ! Every knee will bow in the end, but all in this hour will have no excuse for I come quickly, and My sword is in My hand to execute judgment on the wickedness in the earth. I am ROUTING the enemy and there will be great DIVISION. Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the KINGDOM ! Blessed are those who have mourned, for they will be comforted ! Blessed are those who have been rejected and scorned by men, and mocked for loving me more than their order and hierarchal hatred ! I have created an 140
    • awesome army ! In the hearts of the remnant will I explode and cause such a manifestation of My love and power, that the earth itself will tremble as it marches forth ! The UNITY that I bring is not that of pretense, and compromise. The UNITY I bring will destroy the wisdom of the wicked, and those in arrogance and pride ! The Unity I bring, will cause a roar among the crowds, clamoring to get into My church. But I will bring the souls of men to a church that will be changed by My glory, that they will not hearken to men’s doctrines, but to MINE ! I am the LORD YOUR GOD and I will have NO other gods before ME ! I am RESTORING the ancient FOUNDATION that was established on TRUTH, JUSTICE, and FAITH ! My righteousness is not to be mocked and trampled down, nor My grace to be taken advantage of ! I am calling you to HOLINESS, but when the KINGDOM wind comes, there will come a HUSH and weeping and mourning for there is no hiding from the TRUTH that is a Person ! I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. Love is the standard I hold you to ! Love is NOT compromise with holiness. Love from a good father will always be to rescue the child from darkness, and wickedness, and to set them on the path that leads to LIFE ! For the Way is narrow that leads to life and FEW I said, find it ! But the way to destruction is WIDE. So which path do you want to take ? Will you drink the cup I offer you ? Or will you take the easy way ? Are you wanting the power of My Resurrection, and the fellowship of My sufferings ? Or do you only want YOUR WAY ? Prognostication - Nov 27 th, 2005 “ I have some of My own prognostication to reveal. You already have the whole story, but you don’t have details. I have some things to share with you so that you can be encouraged in getting through the times ahead. I want you to know that I am a good Husbandman, and I never neglect My bride. I wouldn’t abandon you in the midst of trials and pain. I wouldn’t neglect you, nor deceive you, nor trick you. Just as a good husband doesn’t ignore his wife, neither do I neglect My own. I am close to those who desire to be close to Me. I’m as close as anyone can get, because you are the temple of the Holy Spirit. And Holy Spirit and I are ONE. So I feel what you feel. I know your going out and coming in. I know everything you think and do and will do. My beloveds will volunteer in the day of My power I’ve said. You will be willing volunteers because you will perceive, and see the direction that I am taking you, and the signs of the times. You know that there is little time left, and I need everyone who is willing to go for Us. For there is harvesting to do. There is much teaching and cleaning of fish to do ! I have called to My army and I am about to bring in a flood of NEW RECRUITS. These new recruits will need wisdom and understanding and knowledge that I have trained you with. You will need much patience and love and to be filled with My Spirit to be able to handle all that will come. You need to be filled with My WORD, to discern who is sent by ME, and who is a plant of the enemy. 141
    • I don’t want you to be overwhelmed by all that I will do, so I’m telling you now, that it will be a FLOOD, a FLOOD of souls, such as has never been seen. Denominational barriers will be destroyed in this flood, even as the levees collapsed in New Orleans, there will be a collapse of all walls that are NOT of ME. I told you the form is not important, because what is important is love, and relationship with ME. If your relationship with ME is in order, then your outreach to others will be in righteousness, peace and joy. But if you neglect your time with ME, you will be confused, distracted easily and get off base with what I WANT you to do ! You need to keep CHRIST MINDED. You need to keep your mind STAYED on ME. In this way you will keep in perfect peace, when the rest of the world is in dismay and despair, and in panic, and insanity from all that is coming on the world. I tell you that you MUST keep your mind on ME. You must keep up daily disciplines to not get distracted. Worship is KEY to breaking down the witchcraft that is growing in the earth. WATCH WHAT YOU SAY. Watch what you speak with your mouth ! Ask for grace to keep free from double-mindedness. For the enemy is busy trying to sow seeds of doubt everywhere he can to try to destroy FAITH. Lies and lying spirits are everywhere, trying to destroy all they can. You must stay in my word. EAT the WORD. Meditate on the Word. Speak MY WORD outloud, and pray it. Get it into you that you may use it in POWER to destroy every rampart of the enemy ! Do not push against each other. Be willing to yield to those who are humble, and willing to work together. Do not give in to competitions and jealousies. There will be more than enough work to do. REMEMBER THAT LOVE IS THE GREATEST ! It is the greatest weapon against all the strategies of the enemy. So love one another as I have loved you and been patient with you ! Stand against all defensive pride and do not give in to arrogance and strife. Impatience has grown and frustration abounds. But I have called you to patience and forbearance. So ask for MY GRACE daily, hourly, and however often you need it. I’ve given you an open door to ask for it whenever you need it. GRACE is always available to you ! Quickly forgive, and let no root of bitterness fester. Keep forbearing with those who are weaker and in need of much grace. Remember you once were also new in ME, and knew very little yourself. Ask ME for how to help one another. Ask ME for all you need, for I AM HERE FOR YOU ! Ask and you shall receive for I love you and My love endures FOREVER ! A Song to My Beloveds Dec 2nd, 2005 2:20 am www.upstreamca.org I come to sing a song of love to My beloveds A song of hope and glory, a song of pain and joy. The time is coming to a close, and everybody knows That joy and laughter, mirth and gladness Flee in the depths of hate and darkness 142
    • Except in the hands of one who understands That freedom is not abundance of things But freedom is being in a state that sings Of love and joy, of peace and of hope Of lives healed and dead bodies raised To linger on the earth in a glorious phase For the sake of bearing glory for the Ancient of Days. I come to sing a song of lament For lives full of darkness and times not well spent. I come to sing a tune of a dirge For to the earth I am coming to purge The work of demons, and foul things of the earth The things that maim, and steal all mirth. The things that kill the soul of a man The one full of evil will not long stand For the Glorious One Who holds the earth in His hands Has come down to share in the battle, and to save the lands Before all is destroyed by the father of lies And before the bells ring, and the man of sin decries. I come to sing a song of JOYS For birthing is coming and a release to all the ploys Of the enemy to keep My beloveds from their hope For nothing can stop what I have in My scope. I’m joy and I’m gladness, I’m love fully restored I’ve treasures in darkness I want employed To work for the King and to serve Him with might Truly their love will give satan a fright ! I’m coming down in the cool winter wind Midst the storms and the clouds, his decrees I’ll resind ! His spirit grows strong in the violence of earth Lawlessness rushes in on the skirts of dirth But I am not weak as some men suppose To all the dirt and the muck I will give you a HOSE ! Power and glory descend now from above On the gentle wings of the snow white Dove. His power is much more than men have given Him credit And to the mocking and scorning He will make a great debit. For sons and daughters who’ve been far away Will get revelation of the brand new day ! Their eyes will be opened and hearts renewed I will come down and answer prayers accrued ! Suddenlies will break forth in the desert times now ! Miracles will come to raise the furrowed brow . 143
    • I will have My way midst the mayhem and storms I will set the enemy running and the veils will be torn That have blinded nations and blinded men and women alike To the serpent of old will I give a good HIKE ! A price will be paid, about which you’ve read For blood will be spilled in many a bed ! Many martyrs will speak out in the dread. For in their death will I bring life instead. Life and love to nations will I pour out in the valley of decision The enemies will be left in the dust of the vale of derision. Transformation is coming to the church which exalts ME. So don’t give in to sadness, but dance and sing with GLEE ! For in the end, the earth will finally be made FREE ! For all will come and worship ME. From lowest to highest in the order of man Will they come from near and far to express joy in the land The King of Kings will rule in reign on the earth And times will be so different, full of joy and mirth ! Even as the seasons change, to all hearts will I rearrange. Hearts will be filled to the full with My love Hearts will skip and dance and enjoy all from above. Men will be changed, and children will dance There will be no end to the Divine Romance ! from Ruach Elohim thru Priscilla A Flame Dec. 7th, 2005 A vehement flame of fire will I make my one desire A flame that burns and burns till it becomes a great pyre. For night after night He brings, love songs that He sings And in my ears a great treasure He brings. Longing for Him grew dim for My heart had grown faint Worldly cares & enemy's dares taunted me and my mind did taint And all around was the din of the fray Of changing times and much DELAY. I tired for want of seeing His face I felt so alone and longed so much for the GRACE To see Him again and to feel His sweet touch The longing so long and delay became too much. 144
    • I lost strength in the battle And felt like so much chattel. I forgot the many times of treasured talk He gave. My heart seemed to move closer to the grave. The season was so long and so dry, All my heart could do is weep and cry. I longed for my Lover and I thought I would die When suddenly there was a sign of life again nearby. I knew He'd always been there for He promised never to leave But in my heart I was sorely grieved For I longed for that wonder, that awe to behold And I wanted again to taste of Him and be BOLD. His sweetness is always around when in need But I longed for more and more in my need. I knew He had more, and my heart was a rush To see what He would do in the midst of the hush. "I'm making you a flame", He said from His heart "I'm making you a flame, so you will start A fire in the hearts of others you will see A fire in their hearts that will make them think of ME. I'm the ONE above all they need to know And I'm the One who has power for them to grow ! I'm needing an army that will not back down you see I'm needing an army to GO for ME. I'm love and I'm kindness, I'm hope amidst the fray. I'm peace and I'm joy and I'm justice in this day ! I'll love you forever and by your side will I stay ! I'll put an end to the madness and to the enemy I'll repay. I'll repay his deceit with many a miracle, sign and wonder, To his minions, will My voice THUNDER ! A final blast of the trumpet will I blow To that last enemy; death, will I throw Down in the pit will he go and no longer know The pleasure of stealing My sheep from their glow. For JOY will fill every heart in the nations That longs for the KING and with HIM wants relations ! Chattel: def. 2 : SLAVE, BONDSMAN 145
    • Ruach Elohim via Priscilla Van Sutphin Exquisite Artwork Dec 28th, 2005 Through Priscilla van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org “I am transfiguring My Bride into the radiant exquisite work of art I have longed for ! I am putting on the finishing touches so that she reflects My Heart, My mind, My will, and My character. I am seeking after those who really want to spend their time with ME. I am the pearl of great price and I am seeing more and more how many really want to just be with me, and I see way too much busyness in those called to My name. Way too much striving and trying to make a name, or a reputation. My Son was made of no reputation that you could be free ! He was humiliated and scouraged, and mocked, and beaten, that you could have intimate relationship with Him. He came to RESTORE all that had been stolen. He remains ever interceding for you that you will come to the full knowledge of the TRUTH of why He died and paid such a great cost. It is all about LOVE My beloveds ! All about the LOVE We have for you. You are the Pearl we also longed for and were willing to die for ! He left the comfort of heaven and all comfort and royal surroundings to come in HUMILITY so that He could restore you to relationship with Us. Are you so easily discouraged when men mock and chide you for being a Christian ? Think of Him and how He was so beaten and humiliated when you think it is so hard. Think on all that is good that He gave for you, so that you will never have to suffer in eternity. He paid a great price to purchase you ! Will you also LAY DOWN YOUR LIVES so that HIS LIFE can move through you to engage the rest of humanity who don’t know about this love ? Will you lay down Your AGENDA, and pick up MY agenda and take this love to streets, and neighbors, to cities and states, to nations and the islands of the earth ? Are you willing to confront the darkness? Are you ready ? The only way to be ready is to lay down your agenda. You cannot prepare yourself. I alone can prepare you. You cannot do anything apart from ME. I am your exceedingly great reward. It is ONLY when you are filled to the brim with the knowledge of My love for you, that you can walk in the fullness of Who I AM ! Yield to the difficulties I have put before you, not by striving, but by rejoicing and praising and worshipping ME ! I want you to rest in ME. My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Learn to rejoice when men treat you rudely. Learn to rejoice when men speak ill of you. Learn to rejoice when Life seems unfair, or you are mistreated because of My name’s sake. Learn to rejoice when you are tempted and thank Me, that MY GRACE is sufficient for you and keeping you from all that could torment you ! Thank ME for all the circumstances of your lives. In this way you DEFEAT the enemy! 146
    • He is defeated when he cannot say you are complaining, or sad and weary, and angry at Me or others in the world around you. When you rejoice instead of giving in to discouragement and defeat he is defeated. Discouragement leads to unbelief , and unbelief to FEAR. It will cause a great spiraling down in hope and courage to fight. So DO NOT GIVE IN. STEP out in the authority I have given you. Put on the garment of PRAISE for the spirit of heaviness ! Clothe yourselves in linen garments instead of wool. Rest instead of striving. Take time out, like you give your children to just think on ME, to worship ME, then you will feel better. RELEASE all your cares to ME Who cares FOR you ! This is true humility. It is humility when you know you can’t handle it alone. Pride is thinking YOU have to do it all. That is the pride of self sufficiency and is an utter stench in my nostrils. All things are possible with GOD. I AM your greatest admirer! I AM your greatest encourager, if you will but COME TO ME ! My Son is ever interceding for you, so even when you feel tired, know that HE is praying for you. Know when you are weary , that HE will sustain you. You are never alone in all you face. I am doing much repositioning so that you are yoked with those who will walk in integrity and kindness and the LOVE WE have for the lost and broken. I will blow on My garden and it will be transformed. There will be a great division and it will be evident who serves ME, and who serves self. This is why it is important to lay down YOUR opinions, YOUR agenda, YOUR will. You must be on the side of LIFE, and LIGHT, and not on the side of darkness and compromise. You cannot be doubleminded. You must be single-minded and single-eyed ! Keep your eyes on ME alone, not on the circumstances, not on the world, or the enemy and what he is doing, but on ME My beloveds ! SHIFTING is happening. Even as I shift things in the heavenlies, there will be earth shifting. Have you noticed ? Have you not seen ? The LORD is still the LORD OF LORDS, and KING OF KINGS. He is still able to do all things according to HIS purposes. I am SHAKING and I will shake until all that can be shaken is shaken. The kingdoms of man are falling. The kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdoms of Your LORD and CHRIST. Harvest is approaching and I will have an abundance. Your hearts must be ready. So come away with me. Come and sit and let us reason together for I have much to say and teach you. It is VITAL that you spend time with ME now in communion with ME. Soon your days will be busy, beyond imagination, and you must never give up your time with ME. It is KEY to survival in the days ahead. Who will listen? Who will hear ? Who will obey ?” Righteousness & Glory – Jan 6th, 2006 The Lord spoke: “I AM your Righteousness and I AM the GLORY, and the lifter of your head ! I AM your exceedingly great REWARD! I AM the MASTER WORSHIPER, and I am calling to 147
    • My beloveds to come and dance with ME. Come and worship Your KING and SAVIOR ! I am to be the delight of your heart! I AM the LORD OF GLORY! It is MY glory that leads you into paths of righteousness for My name’s sake ! It is My glory that comes in a cloud over you or a fire over you as you worship Me and proclaim My praises ! It is MY presence that will change you, and empower you and give you PEACE. I am the crystal clear calm water that you can drink in, and receive all you need of. I am the FOUNTAIN of LIVING WATER. I AM PEACE. I AM LOVE. I AM all you need in this life and all you will EVER need for I AM LIFE. I AM the SOURCE of all LIFE. It is MY LIFE you receive in My presence. My LIFE brings joy inexpressible and overflowing. MY LIFE brings love and kindness, peace and understanding. My LIFE brings humility, goodness, righteousness and tenderness of heart! MY LIFE brings conviction, restoration, resurrection, healing and deliverance. Come to me, not just for the sake of what you want but because it is ME that you need. For I AM and have all you need! I don’t want you to just prophesy, or heal but to BE PROPHECY. TO BE HEALING to the hungry soul. In order to BE , you need ME. You need MY LIFE. MY POWER, MY GLORY. There is only one Source and that is ME ! There is no other name given under heaven, by which men must be saved. It is JESUS. That is why they hate My name. They hate ME because they will to do what they want. The flesh always wants what IT wants. Satan is the same. He wanted to only do what he wanted. He wanted to make himself God, and because men want to be their own gods, they also hate ME. So when you hear them blaspheming My name. Do not hate them for it. Do not Look at them as if it is something unusual. That hater of God is not free. You are free. They only have a limited perspective because the god of this world has blinded them. KNOW THAT I HAVE MORE POWER. SAY TO YOURSELF, GOD CAN CHANGE THAT. THE BLOOD OF JESUS CAN CHANGE THEM ! PROCLAIM MY GOODNESS, MY LOVE IN THE LAND OF THE DEAD. Many are the walking dead because they refuse My love. But as you in confidence speak MY TRUTH, as you are LED, it will impart life to the surroundings, to the heavens, to the hearer. Even the ground will be affected by worship and proclaiming of My word ! I said, when I come, will I find FAITH on the earth. You can see why now, can’t you ? There is an escalation of the enemy to try and steal My harvest. But MY GLORY is increasing as the praises rise to ME. As you increase in numbers, of those praising ME even in the midst of trials and tribulations, there will be more and more glory poured out in you and through you ! RISE UP, MY BRIDE AND SING A NEW SONG TO YOUR BELOVED ! SING TO ME, DANCE WITH ME, ASK ME AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE NATIONS ! ASK OF ME AND I WILL WALK WITH YOU DAILY. COME AND LET US REASON TOGETHER AND COMMUNE TOGETHER. IN QUIETNESS AND REST YOU WILL BE RESTORED 148
    • AND I WILL POUR OUT MY MIGHT ! I WILL MAKE YOU AND YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS A RADICAL GENERATION !!!!!” JAN 11th, 2006 For I will SHOCK MANY into submission in the days ahead. They will have trouble believing their eyes. The WORLD is in for major changes this year. ARE YOU READY to be changed ? ARE YOU WANTING TO BE CHANGED ? THE RIVER WILL FLOW of MY LOVE, and nothing will stop it !!! Humble yourselves before MY My beloveds, for I am coming to bring about a great change…and to unfold MYSTERIES. I WILL SHAKE YOU FREE FROM YOUR UNBELIEF ! Still many will be adamantly opposed to change, even when they see startling miracles. So do not be afraid, nor dismayed nor discouraged by their resistance. LOVE IS THE GREATEST ! My LOVE will drive out all fear. My LOVE will heal and deliver from bondages ! My LOVE will destroy the roots of doubt and skepticism and unbelief for all who will receive of ME. MY LOVE is the greatest mystery of all! Stand tall, though the mountains fall, though the earth shakes, though it coughs up fire. Stand tall even when men are angry and hateful towards you, for it is ME in you that they hate the most. PERSECUTION is coming on this wave, and I don’t want you in fear. I have been calling you to the bedroom of INTIMACY with ME, so that you can be filled up with love so much, that NOTHING will cause you to fear. NOTHING will cause you to move away from My purposes. Nothing will cause you to abandon intimacy with ME. ” Mayberry Road Jan 13th, 2006 Via Priscilla Van Sutphi n www.upstreamca.org Over on Mayberry Rd, the Houses look bigger still Over on Mayberry Rd, the houses are awfully built. The sun never shines on Mayberry road, the bottles Of wine stay musty and old. If the story were totally told, The people would whine and the drunks they would dine On stale beer and pretzels, cheap bread, and cheap wine. The world is satisfied with only a bit Of the rays of the Son shining down on it. The world is never satisfied by all that it craves 149
    • The world will soon be in terror over the Ancient of Days. For the new wine I am pouring and the Prophets will be soaring on wings of The Eagle and the song of the Dove. The heavens are ready and waiting this hour When the Mighty One rends the heavens and pours out HIS power. What will you do, oh seed of man when you see the Truth ? Will you lie in the gutter and spit at Him now ? Will you anger the Son, in the midst of the fray, Or will you bow down your knees to a brand new day ? There is no room for doubt and wavering His presence you must be truly savoring To now turn aside from the din and the hum of all things Beautiful on earth and listen to the sound of His drum. No worldly state can compare to the air when it’s full of His pre sence And teetering on the brink of a new existence ! Don’t hide now sons and daughters in the hills and the caves They never will protect you from the road He paves. He’s coming in power to be the MAN of this hour. No pretense will stand when He reveals the sons of man. Come and bow down to the Holy King of Kings For on His fingers He bears a ring that stings. Warnings have been sounded and the waves they do roar The people will not tremble so He comes as they snore. Oil in their lamps they have not kept . They’ve bent down their knees to power and contempt. For all things bright and beautiful in this world will fade dim The judgments on earth will make life seem to wear thin. Come along My beloveds, for I am ringing the bells For on the wings of angels t he plans He tells I‘ve come to find faith in the remnant I keep. Won’t you come and find shelter in the Heart that is deep ? The LORD will be awesome and the sons they will shine ! But the cost will be awful, and mankind they will pine . 150
    • Lay down your cares and consider the times. For the end comes quickly now, can’t you see the signs ? Hide in My shadow and sing Me a song. I will protect you from the burdening throng. My face is uncovering the daughters of men My presence is empowering the writings of the pen. Launch out in the deep, for your heart I will keep ! I am love and I’m laughter , I’m peace forever-after. I’m holy and righteous and near to the sons of My heart. I’m always looking for the one who blesses that part, Of My house that is not kept i n the strictest of order. For I am erasing the walls that have kept up a border. I am healing and saving the sons of men, I’m releasing and imparting and loosing them from the den, Of iniquities and unbelief, of doubt and skepticism. Of sickness and malady, of infirmity and brutal criticism. I’m LIFE and I’m LOVE, I’m eternal forgiveness ! To the one whose heart moves at the stir of My PRESENCE ! _____________________________________________________ Mayberry RFD – may represent living in the past/ and tr aditions of men.

    • The Lord said, “remembrance” Mal 3:16 -18 NKJV A Book of Remembrance Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the LORD and who meditate on His name. 17 "They shall be Mine," says the LORD of hosts, "On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him." 18 Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. Malachi 4 NKJV The Great Day of God "For behold, the day is coming, Burnin g like an oven, And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up, "Says the LORD of hosts, "That will leave them neither root nor branch. 2 But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings; and you shall go outaAnd grow fat like stall-fed calves. 3 You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this," Says the LORD of hosts. 4 "Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. 6 And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse." “ This is the hour when the Son of God will be glorified in His people. THIS is the hour of TRUMPETS and WARNINGS, a time of great turmoil is coming and you must SOUND the trumpet in the land . For great is that day. Great in trouble, great in violence, great in tribulation. Famine is loosed, and the trumpet sounds again. My people, I am sounding trumpets in heaven, and as the heavenly trumpets blow, so shall I give My prophets power to BE A TRUMPET in the earth . NEW STRENGTH, and NEW VIGOR, NEW VISION and DIRECTION will be loosed for that which is to come. The SPIRIT of MIGHT will overcome you like a MIGHTY WAVE and there will be a new found 152
    • confidence, and new found POWER to PROCLAIM with BOLDNESS what I give you to say. Do not hold back My words from those around you for they are DYING. You are walking among corpses and the dead, yet you do not prophesy and say AWAKEN ! The time of the Lord is at hand ! THIS is the year to PROCLAIM THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD. [ Is 61] For I AM the MIGHTY ONE OF ISRAEL. MIGHTY ONE, El Rachum is My name. I am fearsome in My might. I am JUST in My judgments, and there is none like ME in all the heave ns and the earth or under the earth ! I AM the God of JUSTICE. Though the mountains may fall, and the stars fall from heaven, yet MY WORD and My promises remain. I AM a GOOD FATHER Who gives good gifts to His children and there is nothing I am not able to reverse that the enemy does to you ! He may take his shots, but he is overcome by PRAISE. He is overcome by WORSHIPPING ME ! He is a thief and has been a thief from the beginning. He has been stealing your joy, but I tell you YOUR JOY WILL BE MADE COMPLETE ! I will restore for I am a God of restoration, and though he may mock and laugh now. In the end, I AM the RESTORER. I AM coming with HEALING in MY WINGS, and there will be startling demonstrations of healing and enormous change in the earth . WAR is at hand. War is imminent. Do not put off till tomorrow the time you need with ME NOW. Come aside My beloveds, come aside with ME, and WORSHIP. WORSHIP and REJOICE. Bring the sacrifice of praise and a spirit of thanksgiving and watch as I do all that I’ve told you I will do. Do not give in to the taunts of the enemy as trials will grow. Birth pangs get more frequent and escalation ensues. REJOICE, and AGAIN I SAY REJOICE !!! Abandon yourselves to ME. I am your Exceedingly GREAT REWARD ! For it is the WORSHIP that he so hates. It brings MY PRESENCE and in MY PRESENCE IS FULLNESS OF JOY !! In My presence is everything you need. The FIRE OF MY LOVE is being poured out as you WORSHIP Me and rest and allow Me to touch you. Listen, for I AM speaking, I am sharing, I have not gone anywhere. I AM WITH YOU, at your side. USE THE SWORD of glorious praise and worship and the mingling of the WORD in praises for all I’ve done for you, for all I’m about to do. REJOICE beloveds. REJOICE. All is at hand. 153
    • From: Ingratiating Grace Jan 22nd, 2006 Thru Priscilla Van Sutphin “This is an hour of trial and hardship for America [and the nations], but in the midst of attack on you and your resources will I usher in a season of healing and deliverance, such as you’ve never seen before. Many will go to the nations carrying My glory and words of grace and comfort. Men will be killing and murdering but I will be reviving and resuscitating, and resurrecting. Men will be stealing from each other, but I will be restoring. Men will be filled with HATE but I will be loving on you. Lawlessness will abound yet I will bring MY ORDER amidst the fray of chaos. I said the glory of the latter house would be greater than the former.” Hag 2:6-9 AMP For thus says the Lord of hosts: Yet once more, in a little while, I will shake and make tremble the [starry] heavens, the earth, the sea, and the dry land; [Heb 12:26.] 7 And I will shake all nations and the desire* and the precious things of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with splendor, says the Lord of hosts. [Isa 60:5; Matt 2:1-12.] 8 The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine, says the Lord of hosts. 9 The latter glory of this house [with its successor, to which Jesus came] shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts; and in this place will I give peace and prosperity, says the Lord of hosts….. Jan 25th, 2006 The hour is hastening when I will overturn the tables of the money-changers and destroy all that is not of ME. I still am under the impression that the sheep are MY SHEEP, and that I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD. So once again I will bring a recapitulation of fulfilled prophecies, that the earth will know that I AM KING, and I AM LORD OF ALL LORDS. They will see with their eyes mighty and wondrous things. They will no longer mock on My holy hill. Though many will go on in their wickedness, yet I will bring a great HARVEST OF SOULS and shake the heavens and the earth with My power and restore to My beloveds, righteousness. Will you go for Us? Will you go My beloveds into the thrones of men, and into the streets? Will you rise up from the dust and ashes of sorrow and rejection at all that is around you and be BOLD for Us? If you are willing, then I will empower you to go and to do what I say. This too, you must learn, to lean FULLY on ME. To depend FULLY on ME, and not go your own ways. This is the work I have been doing in your hearts to bring you to the place of death to self, and abandonment to ME. I AM your exceedingly great Reward. I AM YOUR INHERITANCE. I AM at your side, and within you, and I will never turn away. When you stand before those I ask you to, I WILL BACK YOU UP ! I will use you if you will put away all despondency and bitterness and be able to flow in MY LOVE AND KINDNESS as you confront kings and men, officers, and governors. But YOU MUST LISTEN TO ME. You must DEPEND on Me for what to speak, what to say, how to say it. 154
    • I will give you the wisdom and understanding of the times that you desire, so long as you do not use it to promote YOU. If you will use it to promote ME, then I will share my heart with you and not hold back. But I know the motivations of your hearts, My beloveds. I know the pain and insecurity, the rejection and defensive pride still there, and all the unbelief in My ability to sustain you. THIS I AM REMOVING. I am wanting you to grow CONFIDENT in MY ABILITY, rather than your own !” Jan 28th, 2006 Thru Priscilla van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org 1 Cor 12:1 AMP NOW ABOUT the spiritual gifts (the special endowments of supernatural energy ), brethren, I do not want you to be misinformed. Col 1:29 AMP For this I labor [unto weariness], striving with all the superhuman energy which He so mightily enkindles and works within me. “ When I blow on My garden of reknown, there will come a tremendous energy I give to My saints to do great exploits and to breathe the breath of life into others. My spirit is energy and He is the RESOURCE of all the power you need to do the greater things I will call you to do. You have wondered at all that I’ve put you through, many of you. You must learn to STAND against the tide and flow of the waters of adversity, and rebuke the winds and the waves with My WORD which is LIFE to your bones and a light unto your path. Many are weary and have not spent time in the secret place to get filled up with all I have to give. If you want energy and MY LIFE is that, then you must come to ME, the WELL of LIVING WATER and imbibe in all I AM to get to a place of being full of LIFE and energy to share with others who don’t know of My love and kindness, to know the POWER of My Kingdom. When I sent Paul, he told you he did not come with persuasive words of speech, but with POWER and the DEMONSTRATION of the HOLY SPIRIT…. FRUITFULNESS is a by product of intimacy with ME- My resurrection LIFE that comes out of suffering. THE POWER OF RESURRECTION LIFE COMES FROM CARRYING THE CROSS. WILL YOU TAKE UP YOUR CROSS OH WESTERN BRIDE? WILL YOU DIE TO BEING RECOGNIZED ? WILL YOU DIE TO HAVING A NAME FOR YOURSELF? WILL YOU DIE TO BEING IMPORTANT IN THE EYES OF MEN? FOR WHEN YOU ARE ABLE TO DO THAT, THEN YOU WILL NOT STEAL MY GLORY WHEN GLORY IS POURED OUT. THAT is what I am waiting for. February 4th, 2006 155
    • The Lord began to speak: “ Many of you are looking at your children, wondering what happened. You overevaluate sometimes things you may have done wrong and need to forgive yourself for any mistakes you have made. Still I AM GREATER STILL than any mistakes you have made. I AM the GREAT I AM. I AM honoring your love for your children, many of whom are grown, and have gone a totally different way than you would have for them. Some have said even in my church, evaluating statistics, that they are unsalvageable. Some have said, focus on the younger ones, because it’s too late for the older young adults. Some have gotten youth into programs that are purely performance and or entertainment oriented. They are jumping through hoops to try to be like those around them, never realizing that I WANT RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM - personal relationship, not just airtime. NO ONE IS UNSALVAGEABLE because of age. Age is not a factor for ME. Why would anyone give up just before breakthrough. I tell you I WILL HAVE a REVIVAL among the youth unrivaled in this nation heretofore! There is so much fluff in the teaching of the youth, and simplification that is too much watering down of truth, to be truth anymore. THE WORD STANDS ON IT’S OWN. MY WORD IS TRUTH. MY SON IS TRUTH. HE IS THE PEARL OF GREAT PRICE THEY NEED TO KNOW AND YES, EXPERIENCE ME !!!! They have seen so much hype and phoniness, many of them, that they don’t even want to enter a church. Where are those who will GO for ME into the streets, into the highways and byways and make a point of reaching out to those who are lost? They aren’t going to come to hype and sensationalism. Some will come, but what will they become if they only see pretense and striving to be like the rest of the world. They want to see something REAL. They want something that works. Many of them care for the poor and broken. They see that the church has spent it’s wealth on themselves and haven’t fixed what is broken in people. THEY NEED THE REALITY of MY SON. WILL YOU DEMONSTRATE TO THEM MY LOVE, MY POWER, MY PATIENCE, MY GRACE ? Stand at heightened awareness My beloveds, when you go into the stores, and markets, and doctor’s offices, and drug stores ! I have work for you to do out there in the marketplace. I am not a man that I should lie, nor a son of man that I should change My mind. I am coming like a mighty rushing wind again and I will destroy the wisdom of the wise in their own opinions. I will destroy all the ways of man, the towers of Babel in your midst. I will invade coffee shops, and college campuses and I will take hold of a generation that others have X’d out and bring them to their knees. I will not only do it for them, but for all in your generation! RISE UP IN THE POWER OF MY MIGHT! TAKE HOLD OF YOUR SHIELD OF FAITH! RISE UP AND DEMONSTRATE THE TRUTH OF MY WORD, AND I WILL FOLLOW IT WITH SIGNS AND WONDERS, AND I WILL TAKE THE OLD MAN IN A PERSON AND MAKE THEM INTO A NEW MAN OR WOMAN, BOY OR GIRL. IT WON’T MATTER WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST. I WILL SET THEM ON A NEW PATH, THE PATH OF LIFE IN THE SPIRIT! They will know ME! THEY WILL KNOW ME and WALK WITH ME!

I am arraying My own with gold of Ophir and decking you with garlands. I am readying My bride to take her place and to receive all that I want to pour into her. You only have to come to receive. But you must make the decision to come to Me - To be willing to come. I AM the Desire of ALL NATIONS and I will increase the glory of My house. YOU are that temple! Come and ask to come into My heart. For I am longing to make My heart one with yours! All things, All Nations will be shaken. All that can be shaken will be shaken. The glory of the latter temple will exceed that of the first. I will fill you with My GLORY. I will have a glorious bride. Persevere My beloveds ! Forbear with one another for I will change the FACE of My church. Soon you will marvel at the way I will work in your midst! The face of My church is the heart attitudes of the people. I will shake the kingdoms of men and demons! I will execute My justice in the days ahead. I am not a man that I should lie. It is all written. I will perform My Word. Hold on for the ride is getting bumpy and the ride is getting faster. Buckle your seat belts for you will see great and marvelous things. I am raining down glory and I will not stop till My church is transformed!” Feb 19th, 2006 Dan 12:3-4 AMP And the teachers and those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness (to uprightness and right standing with God) [shall give forth light] like the stars forever and ever. [Matt 13:43.] 4 But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the Book until the time of the end. [Then] many shall run to and fro and search anxiously [through the Book], and knowledge [of God's purposes as revealed by His prophets] shall be increased and become great. [Amos 8:12.] “I am calling to those who are called by MY name, for I am pouring out My light, I am pouring out My grace and My wisdom that you will shine like the stars of the heavens in this hour. There will be no mistaking WHOSE you are! I am pouring out glory, My seven fold spirit so that you will be filled with more of the fullness of Me. For I am your exceedingly great REWARD! The royal priesthood of believers will have GOD as their inheritance. So I tell you now, to lay down your heart for the things of this world, though many will have all they need, your heart is to be set on things ABOVE – NOT on the things of this earth. For you are just a temporary resident here. 157

I am not slack concerning My promises. I AM FAITHFUL and TRUE ! I AM burning with desire for My bride, and there is NOTHING that can stop ME from bringing to her, all that she needs in this hour. Do not worry at all about your life, for My grace is sufficient for you! Anything the enemy takes away, ANYTHING, can be restored to you, if you just ask. Ask and you shall receive. He is a thief and a destroyer, but I am the RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE and I AM ABLE TO RESTORE ALL THINGS. I AM the CREATOR after all, so nothing is too difficult for Me ! As you are empowered by ME and delivered, and healed, and are able to do the marvelous things of the Kingdom, the devil will arise trying to mimic My power with grandiosity and avarice and greed ! He will seek to make an end to all who worship ME. His strategies never change, but I have saved a few surprises Myself to deter all the lies that will come against you. There will be much violence as lawlessness is escalating. But there will be great victories as the wave of MY LOVE, LIGHT and POWER overtakes the earth. I am networking ministries together so that you may conspire together in strategies I GIVE YOU for the coming days. You will work in concert with others doing similar things and as you come together, it will bring down glory such as you have never seen through the unity of My Spirit in you all.

Synonym see REVERSE Est 8:8 AMP Write also concerning the Jews as it pleases you in the king's name, and seal it with the king's signet] ring--for writing which is in the king's name and sealed with the king's ring no man can reverse . Isa 43:13 AMP Yes, from the time of the first existence of day and from this day forth I am He; and there is no one who can deliver out of My hand. I will work, and who can hinder or reverse it? Zeph 3:19-20 AMP Behold, at that time I will deal with all those who afflict you; I will save the limping [ones] and gather the outcasts and will make them a praise and a name in every land of their shame. [Mic 4:6,7.] 20 At that time I will bring you in; yes, at that time I will gather you, for I will make you a name and a praise among all the nations of the earth when I reverse your captivity before your eyes, says the Lord. “I am not adverse to change as you are My beloveds. I delight in changing things. I am the CREATOR and I love to create. Yet My nature does not change. Who I am and what I have said, does NOT change. My heart is FOR you more than you can imagine. I take great delight in you and I am so enraptured when you take delight in ME. I am transpositioning many of you in your relationship, and in your alignments and in the inner man, I am reversing all that has been done to you by the enemy! You can rest assured that I am commited to change – to bring you forth like a caterpillar 159
    • that becomes a butterfly will I loosen the grip of the enemy over you so that you can fly and soar with ME. Many are looking to escape what is coming and there is wisdom in preparation. But you cannot prepare on your own. YOU NEED MY PERSPECTIVE. You need to come near me and to WAIT on ME and listen for My voice so you know what to do. I am ever working to change you – to make you less vulnerable to the enemy’s taunts, temptations and torments. Changes in governments are transpiring to try to overtake My beloveds but I will do such a transformation in YOU that they who plot will be transformed. I am working divine reversals in all arenas of life. My own will have what they NEED in the days ahead however those who fight with ME, will find they are in great lack. Apart from ME, no man will be able to sustain himself without great pressures. Know that you will be greatly empowered and great harvest will ensue, but after this has begun will the evil one arise to try to quench what I have started. On the back of great harvest will come great delusion and deception to try and draw men’s hearts away from the TRUTH. Violence will greatly escalate as the lawless one arises in the earth. This war will not be without great battles and great loss, but I will win. I will win over nations and great miracles will draw men’s hearts to me, but don’t expect to be loved for all I do in you and through you ! Those who reject ME will be judged. Heartless vipers will arise more and more. They will not have MERCY on anyone for the antichrist spirit will rage against My bride as I pour out My glory. Those who refuse Me will be given over to delusion, insanity, and death. Your heart will weep for the condition of man. GUARD your time with me if you want to avoid the spirits of insanity yourself. One cannot imagine how bad the behavior will be of the lawless. Judgment will come swiftly for the wicked. The only place of safety will be IN MY HEART. As persecution increases, there will be no borders or walls on My church. The blitzkrieg is close at hand. It will be short lived because of the “man of peace”. There will be a false time of peace with hidden terrors, then sudden destruction. So do not trust what you hear in the news but RELY ON ME for discernment. I am with you, no matter what happens and I will be with you till the end. Lean on ME My beloveds! I am here! Speak My Word in strength! My time is at hand to restore and to tear down, to pluck up and to root out! I will do a mighty thing in My church to conform her to MY WILL. Those not truly Mine will be obvious. Their hearts will be set on MONEY and fame and conformity rather than standing on TRUTH. They will be full of covetousness and will do ANYTHING to maintain their wealth and status. CLING TO ME, and I will keep you from destruction. I WILL TRANSFORM YOUR INNER MAN so that you will walk in CONFIDENCE in My love and power to fulfill what I tell you ! I am longing for you My Bride! I AM so eager to perform My will in your lives more than you can imagine. Can you hear the winds blowing? Can you hear the rustle of the trees? There is a new Wind coming. It will change everything.

But you forced me to it, for I ought to have been [saved the necessity and] commended by you. For I have not fallen short one bit or proved myself at all inferior to those superlative [false] apostles [of yours], even if I am nothing (a nobody). 12 Indeed, the signs that indicate a [genuine] apostle were performed among you fully and most patiently in miracles and wonders and mighty works. 13 For in what respect were you put to a disadvantage in comparison with the rest of the churches, unless [it was for the fact] that I myself did not burden you [with my financial support]? Pardon me [for doing you] this injustice! 14 Now for the third time I am ready to come to [visit] you. And I will not burden you [financially], for it is not your [money] that I want but you; for children are not duty bound to lay up store for their parents, but parents for their children. 15 But I will most gladly spend [myself] and be utterly spent for your souls. If I love you exceedingly, am I to be loved [by you] the less? “ Many in My church have looked forward to this day, in which I display MY POWER ! I have urged you My beloveds over and over to come to Me and to allow Me to do what is necessary to make you into who I want you to be. Some have strived and strived beyond reason. Some have tried, but been so distracted because of the taunts of the enemy. Many have submitted themselves over and over to the church, yet have left feeling rejected and unhealed because there was no one with compassion to minister to them. So many have been disappointed waiting, for there is a timing that is important for before I pour out glory, I give every possible way to man to repent. I am PATIENT with My own, for I know all the opposition that has been there. I am not slack concerning My promises. I WILL REMOVE EVERY HINDRANCE. I will NOT leave anyone out who really loves ME. I will not leave out your children or unsaved families. For many will fall into the kingdom as I pour out My glory ! You 161
    • cannot imagine what it is like for this anointing has been absent from my church for millennia! You have not the comprehension to imagine what it will be like. But I tell you now that your hearts will REJOICE and be GLAD for all I do in this hour. Painful birth pangs are upon you and lawlessness is increasing over the whole earth, but I AM GREATER ! I AM GREATER THAN ALL THE OPPOSITION and I WILL CHANGE the FACE OF MY CHURCH. LET GO of all your hurts and bitterness that you will not be hurt by the glory that is coming. Allow ME to search your hearts and do the healing necessary to WALK IN FREEDOM from resentments, bitterness and pain. I have promised to heal. I said that I would arise with HEALING IN MY WINGS. And I AM DOING THAT NOW! It is the time for the NOWS! ” Isa 33:10-11 NKJV Impending Judgment on Zion "Now I will rise," says the LORD; "Now I will be exalted, Now I will lift Myself up. 11 You shall conceive chaff,You shall bring forth stubble;Your breath, as fire, shall devour you. 12 And the people shall be like the burnings of lime;Like thorns cut up they shall be burned in the fire. 13 Hear, you who are afar off, what I have done; And you who are near, acknowledge My might." 14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; Fearfulness has seized the hypocrites: "Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?" 15 He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly, He who despises the gain of oppressions, Who gestures with his hands, refusing bribes, Who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed, And shuts his eyes from seeing evil: 16 He will dwell on high; His place of defense will be the fortress of rocks; Bread will be given him, His water will be sure. 17 The Land of the Majestic King - Your eyes will see the King in His beauty; They will see the land that is very far off. 18 Your heart will meditate on terror: "Where is the scribe? Where is he who weighs? Where is he who counts the towers?" 19 You will not see a fierce people, A people of obscure speech, beyond perception, of a stammering tongue that you cannot understand. 20 Look upon Zion, the city of our appointed feasts; Your eyes will see Jerusalem, a quiet home, a tabernacle that will not be taken down; Not one of its stakes will ever be removed, Nor will any of its cords be broken. 21 But there the majestic LORD will be for us A place of broad rivers and streams, in which no galley with oars will sail, Nor majestic ships pass by 22(For the LORD is our Judge, The LORD is our Lawgiver,The LORD is our King; He will save us); 23 Your tackle is loosed, They could not strengthen their mast, They could not spread the sail. Then the prey of great plunder is divided; The lame take the prey. 24 And the inhabitant will not say, "I am sick"; The people who dwell in it will be forgiven their iniquity. “ I AM a GOD of RESTORATION and I can do it in you AGAINST all odds !” As the Lord said this, I remembered an incident when a few young friends of mine & I went to a Mormon funeral. We went because the girl who died had given her heart to the Lord, but the parents were yet unsaved and in the Mormon church. There was 162
    • heavy oppression in that place, especially as this one doctor started to speak and proclaimed Mormonism as “the truth” to all [ knowing we Christians were in the crowd ] As he spoke David got the word “anti-christ”. Yet it was in this very setting that David got a touch from GOD in the midst of the darkness that brought a deliverance. God was showing him that even in the darkness, GOD is there with us who believe !!! I will never forget that. As we had prayed before the funeral as a group - God kept giving images of Elijah on Mt Carmel and how it was just he and Obadiah that were there as believers, and maybe Obadiahs hidden prophets [ which we don’t really know from scripture] up against all those false prophets of BAAL! THIS is what Elijah was sent into - just like Moses and Aaron into the court of PHAROAH who at the time was the most occult presence on earth ! “There is NOTHING I cannot do ! There is NOTHING that I cannot HEAL ! There is NO FOE that can withstand My power ! There is NOTHING I cannot replace or restore ! There is NOTHING I AM NOT GREATER THAN BECAUSE I AM ALMIGHTY GOD. I AM the CREATOR. Too much of My church has bowed down to the creature and become consumed by SELF that they are filled with UNBELIEF ! But I am about to CHANGE all that ! THEY will be RESTORED to BELIEF by what I do through those with APOSTOLIC FERVOR, WHOM I HAVE TRAINED UP AND SET APART FOR MY GLORY ! THE ENEMY WILL BE SUBDUED BY THE SWORD I PUT IN THEIR HANDS THAT WILL WIPE AWAY THE ROOTS EVEN OF ALL INFIRMITY, SICKNESS, DISEASE, INIQUITY AND SIN. THERE IS NOONE BEYOND MY ABILITY TO RESTORE. NO ONE ! NOTHING ! STOP putting LIMITS on MY ABILITY AND POWER. I AM SOVREIGN AND I AM LOVE ! WHAT IS WICKED WILL FALL ! WHAT IS WICKEDNESS WILL BE CONSUMED BY THE FIRE OF MY GLORY ! I WILL TRANSFIGURE YOU AND YOU WILL WALK IN NEW LIFE. DEATH WILL HAVE NO VICTORY OVER YOU ! BELIEVE FOR GREAT MIRACLES, SIGNS AND WONDERS ! BELIEVE THAT I AM WITH YOU AND WILL NEVER, NEVER, NEVER LEAVE YOU ! BELIEVE THAT MY LOVE AND GRACE WILL NEVER DEPART FROM THOSE I LOVE AND WHO ARE NOT ASHAMED OF ME ! ” See 2 Cor 11:1-30 AMP March 19th, 2006 …”Separate yourselves from all that is unholy. Search out the little foxes that spoil the vine! Watch your words and watch your hearts. Do not compromise with the world. For I will turn all the systems of man upside down, even as I overturned the tables of the moneychangers, will I overturn the plans of men. Many have only evil in their imaginations for they are lovers of self and filled with greed, consumed with avarice and hatred for anyone other than self. 163

Lawlessness has arisen and famine is increasing. Will you NOW be serious about your time with ME My beloveds? Will you put ME FIRST? Do you really want more of ME ? Do you really want ME more than all that so consumes your time? Are you worshipping me in spirit and in TRUTH? Lay out your requests before ME and see if I will not amaze you! I AM laying a new foundation on TRUTH, JUSTICE AND MERCY. I AM THE LOVER OF YOUR SOULS AND I WILL TRANSFORM THOSE WHO ARE MINE AS THEY ARE WILLING AS I POUR OUT MY GLORY. ENTER INTO MY GATES WITH THANKSGIVING, AND MY COURTS WITH PRAISE! REJOICE FOR I WILL SUDDENLY ENTER INTO MY TEMPLE. ” March 22nd, 2006 And know My beloveds that I have not forgotten your loved ones. I have not forgotten the homeless and destitute, though many of you have forgotten them, I am A GOD OF JUSTICE and I will pour out MY LOVE in the outcasts of your society and they will be changed in a moment! In a twinkling of an eye, you will see them transformed before your very eyes! Those who have loved ones with serious mental disease will be astonished at the miracles I do! For I am not as partial as you oh sons of man! I am not unbelieving, nor heartless toward the autistic and those considered “ugly” by society. I am GOD and there is no other besides ME, and I will demonstrate MY LOVE in a most proficient and stately way, and I will do it in startling and undisciplined ways. I will use those thought least likely by the church. I will use those the church has disdained and forgotten and thrown overboard like so much flotsam or jetsom. I will take those who have had to be taught by ME because the church chose to teach apostasy and their own opinion over My Word. I will turn them into a MIGHTY ARMY that will shake the earth ! The youth who you so want to entertain instead of teach will be turned into RADICAL TRANSFORMERS FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD ! Those who you look at and mock and fear will be touched in a moment and transformed. YES, it is the APOSTOLIC power that you have anticipated. But it will come at a cost beloveds. Don’t keep thinking that life in this United States will be the same. Don’t think that men will stop trying to destroy the Kingdom of God. They will think they are doing me a favor as they cut off your heads and administer drugs to kill you. They will think they are making a new world where all will be peaceful and THEIR WAY - just like at the tower of BABEL. But just as I caused CONFUSION to the plans of those at Babel. Will I also confuse and destroy modern Babylon. I tell you they WILL TREMBLE AT MY NAME AND THEY WILL KNOW THAT I ALONE AM GOD. AND THERE WILL BE NO EXCUSE for rejecting the Son of Man! But to YOU who call on MY NAME, I will arise with healing in My wings. I will destroy the plans of the wicked and I will restore the hearts of 164

Have you not read that darkness will fill the earth and great darkness the people ? Yet I said that My glory will be SEEN upon you ! My glory will shine in and around you to others. Even now there is glory you cannot see that touches others lives as you touch them. Just because YOU can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.” Isa 60:1-5 AMP 1 ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you-rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! [Zech 8:23.] 2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. [Isa 60:19-22; Mal 4:2; Rev 21:2,3.] 3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. [Isa 2:2,3; Jer 3:17.] 4 Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms. 5 Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged; because the abundant wealth of the [Dead] Sea shall be turned to you, unto you shall the nations come with their treasures. [Ps 119:32.] 165
    • “ My glory is not a play toy, nor something to be misused. I’ve said, Do not touch My glory ! My glory I will not give to another. I alone am worthy of all glory and honor and power. I know what it takes to obey such a command. I know that it takes a pure heart. So I have been working on making your hearts more pure, that as I pour out this glory, you would not THINK to touch it, or take credit for anything that I alone do through you. I am to be preeminent ! I am to be the object of affection. I am to be the GLORIOUS ONE who is worthy of all praise. Do not love the praise of men, more than me ! This too is idolatry that will disqualify many. I am rooting out all the insecurities and rejection from you that you will not seek to see your name in print and lights more than MY NAME. For long My church has sought to make a name for itself. They did this at Babel and fell to confusion. The kingdoms of men will fail, but MY KINGDOM will never fail.” Isa 60:7 NKJV All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you, The rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you; They shall ascend with acceptance on My altar, And I will glorify the house of My glory . “ I will glorify My temples and all that is not of ME will be eradicated. I will have a spotless BRIDE. I will not allow you to continue in your present state. Hark to the sound of the drums again. Do you hear the sound of the warrior drums? Do you hear the chimes of war? Do you not see the lawlessness displayed is now bearing fruit in the lands? Can you see My beloveds, how rebellion fills the earth and violence the hearts of men. Haters of God abound, and self has been exalted in the hearts of the youth. I WILL MAKE A DEAFENING SOUND WHEN I DISPLAY MY GLORY! There will be a hush of holiness in the hearts of men as they see MY power displayed in resplendent glory! Hag 2:7-9 AMP And I will shake all nations and the desire and the precious things of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with splendor, says the Lord of hosts. [Isa 60:5; Matt 2:1-12.] The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine, says the Lord of hosts. The latter glory of this house [with its successor, to which Jesus came] shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts; and in this place will I give peace and prosperity, says the Lord of hosts. “ Though many are panicked and affected around you yet you will have peace. For it is not you that will be the object of My wrath, but the harlot church will be the object of the wrath. Just as I saved Jeremiah in the midst of war and persecution from the hand of the one who should have been his brother and honored him, so I will execute My wrath on those who persecute you and hate you. As I change the order of things and pour out glory you will see a shift in the natural, evidence of a shift in the spiritual. Surely in a flood of many waters, they shall not come near you. FIGHT with the word. BELIEVE in MY WORD. I am WITH YOU My beloveds. I am with you. I am the One who keeps you in famine. I am the One who holds the keys of death and hell.

Ps 32:6-7 NKJV For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You in a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters they shall not come near him. 7 You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah Rev 17:16-18 NKJV And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot , make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. 18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth." “Also realize My beloved ones that I am asking many to lay down their lives. Only if a seed falls to the ground and dies will it bring forth life. This is a principle. If you love your life, you will lose it. Do not love the things of this world. For this world is fading away and will dramatically change as time is escalating. Do not cling to the things of this world. Do not be conformed to the knowledge of the world, but seek ME for wisdom and knowledge. Seek me for understanding of the times you are in. For I am pouring out answers to those who ask.

Do they hear ? Or do they see ? They succomb to some degree Man cannot do what God alone does Man tries to limit ME in all that I do It makes no difference how big or small It makes no difference how mighty or tall For a man is only human and cannot excel The areas of knowledge that I alone can tell. Don’t be discouraged with the fate of the world Don’t be discouraged for hope I will unfurl ! This life is but a moment, this life is but a day. For in the heat of the moment, all things seem in delay But I have not run, and I have not lacked I am here now with you and I will watch your back ! The evil men use and evil men abuse, But my love is something you can never refuse Though they think they have it all planned Out of the darkness, their motives I’ve scanned. Longing for nirvana and longing for wealth They make their plans as if with stealth But I know far more than they can at any time I can make it all stop on the throw of a dime ! I know the end from the beginning throughout all time I know their weaknesses and their thoughts all the time. Would you borrow beg or steal for the price of a meal ? Would you make your own bed with leaves and with twigs? This is what the poor must do, and many of them sleep Without true rest, while in your homes you have the best. You’re unwilling to part with the things of this earth. You spend your time in quietness and mirth. Yet in the dens of ancient cities, Things are really far less pretty. Man goes on in his maze of days, And never ponders the Ancient One’s ways. He plods and he speeds in pleasures while here, Then begs for forgiveness when death draws near. How can you wonder and how can you muse When all that I’ve seen, makes me cry in pain? Where is life and where is gain ? 168
    • It’s in the suffering that I change the lame ! I’m gathering up rubbish and heaps of dead leaves. I’m lighting a fire to the heaps of mire. Do you want the world, or do you want ME. Do you want comfort, or a share in the seas ? Myriads of people will come to the SON For out of the darkness, they will surely run. When they see the true plans that have been held back Then suddenly without warning, they will backtrack. Many will come to a brand new day. To a new song they will swing and they will sway. They will laugh and cry and begin a new Way. Come along side me, I’ll show you, if I may ! To the enemy I want to send a ruse. So to his banterings make sure you refuse !

Raisins are delicious are they not, and a good source of iron and sweetness. Just like that, as you sit in the SON’s presence, the concentration of your sweetness becomes more and more as He pours out His love in you. Your usefulness in many situations becomes more and more, as that which was inside you is squeezed out, dried out by the warmth of His love. I am making you My raisins in the Son ! I want you squeezed till you are so SWEET that everyone wants to eat of what you have been nurtured with! I want them to taste and see that the LORD is GOOD! There is nothing that is worth having that isn’t worth the WAIT. So wait on my beloveds, for I am coming, I am changing the order of things. Not all is what it seems. To many things there is a good and a bad side. But I am GROWING FAITH in you to get you through the terrible times ahead. You will not fail, because I will not let you fail! MY GRACE is sufficient for you to be able to do all that I want you to. ASK FOR MY GRACE ! Call upon it in time of need. SHOUT GRACE, GRACE, GRACE to the mountains that the enemy is trying to build against you! NO WEAPON formed against you will prosper.

I am networking My apostles and prophets who will go together to bring down principalities and powers over cities and nations. This the enemy does want to STOP at all costs. But I have a plan. There are some of you who will be called to leave everything and go overseas. There will be those overseas, who will be called here from overseas to minister here. This is MY strategy, for a true prophet is never accepted in his own country. People who hear strangers give them a word, however, they will listen to. I will cause the world to WONDER at the things I do through you. Some of you have calls to cities or people groups, to neighborhoods, or to families, and you are going to see great changes, SUDDEN changes occur in them opening their hearts to the truth. DO NOT BE DISMAYED by the suddenness through which this happens. Do not neglect the gift that is within you beloveds. STIR IT UP ! STIR up HOPE. STIR up FAITH. Do not just lay down and accept everything that comes, but seek MY WISDOM. Ask Me for wisdom in all areas of your life. When it is time, I will give it. But ask ! Do not fear the things coming upon the earth, for I’ve told you that these things MUST happen. You live in the most treasured time on earth. Saints of old have longed to see this hour. There is a host of prayers going up for all of you at this time. I will sustain you and you will see what your heart has longed to see, but do not let yourself give in to discouragement, no matter what happens. Have peace in your heart by keeping your eyes on ME.

Many are dying in this hour for the sake of the gospel. You have been aloof to their needs out of the comfort I have allowed you to live in. Soon all this will change. You MUST LEARN TO TRUST ME FULLY. You must learn that in ALL SITUATIONS I AM TO BE TRUSTED. Heretofore many even in My church have trusted in their own self sufficiency. They have had what they needed to see a doctor, or to pay for medicines, whereas in other nations, people suffer and die due to lack of care, and live compromised lives due to lack. I tell you the hour is arising now when YOUR DEPENDENCE on ME is paramount to survival and to get through all that is coming. My GLORY is being revealed through all the suffering. You may think you are in a bad place, but just when you think you cannot bear any more, you will see the SON arise and My HOLY SPIRIT explode on the scene with miracles and demonstrations of My GRACE and GLORY like you have never seen before. REJOICE, for the culmination of all things is at hand. And again I SAY REJOICE ! For great is your reward for faithfulness to Me. My GLORY arises even as the darkness increases. SO REJOICE . Did you know that repentance leads to JOY ? Did you know that when you walk in the LIGHT and forgiven by My grace, and have confessed everything daily, then your lives should reflect JOY ? BE JOYFUL, though the world is perishing and all it’s systems 177
    • will fail. BE JOYFUL that you are found IN ME. BE JOYFUL when you see men pretend they are in control ! Laugh and be JOYFUL for you know the DAY OF THE LORD IS AT HAND. And you will soon see ME as I AM. Know that with every birth pang, I draw nearer and nearer ! Put on the proper cloak of humility and LOVE, that though you see the pain around you, the sinfulness that torments your minds, KNOW that I AM WITH YOU more than ever ! Each song, each devotion, each time of fellowship with me in quietness or in communicating brings more of MY GLORY. Each time of quiet contemplation on MY WORD, draws My presence, and I am filling you up more and more with My love as you REST IN ME. I will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on ME. ” Heb 1:3 AMP He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the outraying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God's] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high, Rev 15:8 And the sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory (the radiance , the splendor) of God and from His might and power, and no one was able to go into the sanctuary until the seven plagues (afflictions, calamities) of the seven angels were ended. [1 Kings 8:10; Isa 6:4; Ezek 44:4.] AMP Ezek 44:4 Those Admitted to the Temple - Also He brought me by way of the north gate to the front of the temple; so I looked, and behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD; and I fell on my face. NKJV Rev 18:1-2 AMP THEN I saw another angel descending from heaven, possessing great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his radiance and splendor. 2 And he shouted with a mighty voice, She is fallen! Mighty Babylon is fallen! She has become a resort and dwelling place for demons, a dungeon haunted by every loathsome spirit, an abode for every filthy and detestable bird. Rev 21:23 And the city has no need of the sun nor of the moon to give light to it, for the splendor and radiance (glory) of God illuminate it, and the Lamb is its lamp. [Isa 24:23; 60:1,19.] AMP OCT 13th, 2006 …”I like to make a spectacle of the enemy, and so I will in this hour pour out magnificent grace to all willing to come and lay down at My feet. Know that much of what I do in this hour will SURPRISE many. SUDDENLY I will come and show up in the marketplace in the most surprising of ways, and I will use you to destroy the enemy in the lives of others. Listen beloveds. Listen as you go about your daily tasks. Listen for the still small voice of your Adonai.” October 19th, 2006 178
    • “In the ensuing days there will be more and more reports of MY WONDERS till even the news cannot ignore it! People will be interviewed and praise the name of the Lord for mighty miracles of healing, and deliverances. You, My beloveds are going to rejoice and your hearts will be SO FULL of JOY that you will not be able to stop talking about ME. The idols will fall to the ground in many ensuing judgments as well. At the same time I am ARISING. I am putting on My warring garments, until it is time to put on My wedding garments. I advise you to buy from ME gold refined in the fire that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. I have said that as many as I love, I rebuke and chasten.” Oct 25th, 2006 Difficult and perilous times lay ahead. Famine grows and men seek their own solutions, but without knowledge that is from ME. SEEK MY FACE and you will never lack what you need. You will not always have what you WANT, but you will always have what you need. The LOST will not even have that. Great WANT is coming to all who despise the TRUTH. This will cause great lawlessness to contin ue increasing as people who are self willed, strike out at those who have what they want but cannot find. My mercy is available to ALL who will come to ME. My GRACE is sufficient for you in all things. Do not say to yourselves. I will not have to go th rough anything, because the Lord is on my side! Do not be arrogant oh sons of men! For though I will provide for you, it will not be so that you can continue in your idolatry to self and entertainment! Know that I will not despise the one who seeks MY HEART above all the luxuries of this world which are NOTHING compared to My KINGDOM ! Care for one another like brothers and sisters. Pool your resources to provide for the brethren as challenges come upon you. Listen for MY VOICE daily. Treasure time with Me, for it is never a waste of time to seek My face, to rest in My glory ! Men have their agendas, but I have Mine. I will use you to subdue the enemy if you will just come and wait in My presence for MY INSTRUCTIONS. Do not arrogantly PRESUME anythi ng in these times. Ask and you shall receive, KNOCK and the door will be opened. Listen, Listen, Listen to the still small voice within. Lay down your 179
    • TRADITIONS for I am to become preeminent! I AM WHAT YOU NEED! Come and find MY WAY for what lies before you. I AM INCREASING the VOLUME of what you hear! I AM INCREASING THE DISCERNMENT as you stay in MY Word! I AM INCREASING GLORY and AUTHORITY as you lay down before Me and take up My agenda. Lift up your voices in PRAISE! Lay aside all worry and doubt, all anxiety and fear by coming into MY PRESENCE in worship. Still yourselves, for the SON arises with healing in His wings !” Nov. 3rd, 2006 MY KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD ! MY KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD ! My citizens do not fight with guns and rockets, swords and torture. They fight on their knees and in opposition to all that is ungodly! They work from a heart of LOVE, not hate. Some of you beloveds, still have hate in your hearts for those in your own family who have wronged you. If you cannot even give up unforgiveness for those of the same blood, how will you forgive those who are your enemies? Did I not say to LOVE YOUR ENEMIES? That does not mean to cower in fear of secular authorities. Think on this…when you love your child, if you have had children, then you CORRECT them. You restrain them from doing what is harmful to their own health yes ? When your child is about to do something that could ruin the lives of others or his, would you not warn them or stop them? Would you not do all you could to convince them of the TRUTH? I spoke truth to all the Pharisees, and to the procurator. But I spoke it in love especially to those who were lacking in truth. To those who should have known the truth, I was harder. But I rebuked! I warned! I called them hypocrites and white washed tombs. I didn’t withhold My voice. I was NOT APATHETIC. Is it not honoring to speak the truth in love ? What is not honoring is to speak out of hate, resentment, murder and apathy. It is hard to keep your heart right in today’s world. I told you these terrible times would come. I told you to hold cling to ME. For I AM TRUTH. I AM THE WAY. I AM YOUR LIFE SUSTAINER. I AM YOUR LIFE SOURCE ! There is nothing I won’t do for the one who lays down his own agenda and picks up MINE ! I do NOT want you to walk in PRETENSE and LIES and IGNORANCE OF THE TRUTH. YOU MUST LOVE THE TRUTH. SEEK the TRUTH from ME. When you run on and on in your own opinions & fantasy, not wanting the truth, then you will walk in delusion and deception. Wishing for things to be better does not make them better. YOU ARE NOT IN CONTROL. Nor can you MANIPULATE ME to do anything! I am not the sugar daddy some think I am. I AM THE I AM! I am the CREATOR of heaven and earth, and am I not deserving of more honor than men? AM I NOT TO BE THE PREEMINENT ONE in MY CHURCH? 180

    • “You beloved are standing on the precipice of eternity. There has never been nor ever will be a time like this. You are a chosen generation and all heaven is prepared for the battle of the ages. Have you not heard, do you not understand the imminence of all that will happen in all that I have said ? Do you see that the culmination of all things is AT HAND ? THAT is why I have for YEARS said to come to ME, to spend time with ME, to commune with Me , that I could give you the keys you need for going through what is ahead. I have been so patient beloveds with a people who resists My leading. Do not be angry with Me for what you see and for what is about to happen, for I have spoken and warned, I have urged you to prepare your hearts and to come into My arms. What you have not listened to, I keep repeating through the many, so that more and more ears will hear. Remember that before Lot got to the other city, that I waited for him. Do not be impatient with one another. I recognize there has never been such a time since the times of Noah and do you suppose in the many, many years it took him to build the ark that he had no chance to witness, yet people laughed and mocked at him as well. So they have also laughed and mocked you to scorn. Do not feel alone beloveds for all over the world, My prophets have been scorned and mocked and ignored. There is a great company of remnants all over the world who walk in lonliness and heartache for what they see coming, while others go on and on in their complacency and doubt. I AM with you beloveds and I will be more and more with you as I pour out My GLORY and make a spectacle of the enemy. Multitudes in the Valley of decision ! Lay down your agendas beloved, and take up My agenda. I am calling to you. Are you listening for the still small voice ? Are you feeling the leading of the Spirit ? Can you sense the changes I am working ? The floods are coming. The Harvest will be GREAT and your hearts will be astounded. READY THE storehouses for a great multitude comes in the days ahead. GET READY. GET READY. GET READY ! The cost will be GREAT, but the souls that flood into the Kingdom will be multitudinous. Have you sought the oil you will need for the dark days ahead ? Have you come and spent yourselves on me, or have you procrastinated ? Do you think you can continue in pretense beloveds and apathy and complacency and somnolence and still be ready ? AWAKEN to the sound of Your Beloved. WAKE UP oh sleeper and rise from the dead and Christ will rise upon you ! The fire is being lit, and the time has changed. Wake up! WAKE UP! Revele is sounding! It is time. LEAN ON ME for all you need. For the things of this world are fading. The systems of this world will fall. They think they are in control, but I have it all in HAND! I have an iceberg for every Titanic of man! Awake ! AWAKE ! VISION 182
    • An impression came of a huge container of oil being carried by angels. Instead of them just pouring it out in a controlled fashion, one took a hammer and smashed the vessel into pieces and the oil flooded the earth ! Eye has not seen, nor ear heard what I have planned for those who love Me. I am coming beloveds and I will break every chain. I will have MY WAY in My church that is called by My name and I will RESTORE ORDER. MY ORDER – not man’s order. I will make a way where there seems to be impossibility for I am the God of RESTORATION and I am the ONE WHO is an expert at impossible cases. I WILL RESTORE and I WILL DO IT MY WAY, NOT YOUR WAY or CONCEPT OF HOW I WILL DO IT !” Dec 5th, 2006 The Lord spoke: “ See I have given you power to rule over nations and peoples of the earth. Do not think that I will not perform My WORD in you! For I am working to change you so that you will receive the fullness of what I have for you. Be like the wise virgins and continue to purchase oil found in My PRESENCE. For I have nations to conquer, and demons to destroy. I have souls to save from the wrath to come. Ask of Me, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance! For My heart is set on HARVEST beloveds. Nation may rise against nation and ethnic group against other ethnic groups, but My Heart is set on harvesting the souls of the nations and pouring them into your aprons. I need fishermen and women. I need fish cleaners and those who will heal the brokenhearted and downtrodden of the earth. I want MY JUSTICE reestablished in the earth and in places where WORSHIP is raised up, I will pour out My glory. For I come in the presence of praise. The shakings will be violent, and the catastrophes will certainly gain the attention of man. But it will be the outpouring of love THROUGH YOUR HEARTS TO THEIR’S THAT WILL CHANGE THEM. My love is an experience. It can be felt. It can be demonstrated. Every time I touch a heart, or heal a body, or deliver a soul, it is FELT and is an experience that one who has been under oppression will not forget easily. Still some will forget. Some will not be grateful. Remember the 10 lepers healed and only one returned? Don’t feel burdened beloveds for the ungrateful of heart. When one is healed, the gratefulness usually leads to witnessing to others what I have done for them. But this is a wicked and perverse generation and though many are healed, many will not always be grateful, but will succumb to the world and it’s illusions. So this power I pour out into you is not to be frivolously given. Seek My face on who to touch and who not to touch. For some will come like Simon the sorcerer to get what they can from you, just for gain, for greed has filled the earth. Listen to My still small voice, for I know who is true and who is not. Listen for My instructions more and more during the day that you may be in tune with My will. 183
    • Don’t focus on the negative so much as Me. It is MY PRESENCE that drives out demons. It is MY PRESENCE which brings forth healing and miracles. It is in My presence that you will be healed and delivered from all the strategies of demons and men. The wickedness is arising, but also the MORNINGSTAR is arising with healing in His wings, and He is arising in YOU that you may subdue nations and demons. You are my rising stars and I will shoot you off to nations shortly to bring in the bountiful harvest, and many into the streets of this nation which is in great need, will see startling miracles and healings that will subdue the most unbelieving. So BELIEVE in your heart and it will be accounted to you for righteousness. Do not stay in low expectations of what I am to do. Let ME arise in your heart. Come to ME, and lay with ME, and worship Your King, for I desire more than anything to spend time with you. Time with me is never wasted beloveds. Draw near to Me, and I will draw near to you ! “ Transient Glory Dec. 6th, 2006 Via Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org Ex 29:43 NKJV And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by My glory Main Entry: 1tran·sient Function: adjective Etymology: Latin transeunt-, transiens, present participle of transire to cross, pass by, from Trans- + ire to go -more at ISSUE - 1 a : passing especially quickly into and out of existence : TRANSITORY <transient beauty> B : passing through or by a place with only a brief stay or sojourn <transient visitors> 2 : affecting something or producing results beyond itself - tran·sient·ly adverb Synonyms TRANSIENT, TRANSITORY, EPHEMERAL, MOMENTARY, FUGITIVE, FLEETING, EVANESCENT mean lasting or staying only a short time. TRANSIENT applies to what is actually short in its duration or stay <a hotel catering primarily to transient guests>. TRANSITORY applies to what is by its nature or essence bound to change, pass, or come to an end <fame in the movies is transitory>. EPHEMERAL implies striking brevity of life or duration <many slang words are ephemeral>. “ Beloveds, you are only strangers here, and the glory I am about to pour out on My people is miraculous and startling even to the naked eye. My beloveds you have never seen the things I am about to do. Your life here is transient. But My glory is everlasting. Man’s glory is only transient because the glory man gives is nothing compared to Mine. So many settle for much less, not realizing that the glories of this world, and what man gives is NOTHING compared to the GLORY OF GOD. My glory is enduring and it is FREE. It cost you nothing yet it costs you EVERYTHING. People think that if they ask for glory it is this ethereal and beautiful thing, but they don’t 184
    • know ME. When MY GLORY filled the temple, the priest could not stand. Moses himself couldn’t even enter the tabernacle of meeting when My glory was there! Ex 40:34-38 NKJV “Yet man has little reverence for My glory. This is not a right attitude beloveds. I am JOY, and I am LIFE, but glory also brings the FEAR of the LORD. My glory is awesome and fearsome. Ask if it is wise to touch the glory of the LORD, or to treat it lightly. I Am HOLY, and My presence is HOLY. I am Joy and Laughter as well, but My glory is much more than many realize. So many limit Who I am and are filled with unbelief that their actions are important.” It would be wise for this generation to resolve to humble themselves in the presence of the Almighty rather than to stand proudly in arrogance and presumption. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of WISDOM. Not many who are wise in their own eyes are chosen beloveds. There is reason for that, for pride blinds a man or woman. Pride hides sin rather than causing a man to humble himself before his Lord and Master. Surely I am worthy of adoration and worship. Remember that Satan was removed from heaven for failing to worship and for seeking glory for himself. So who do you think men emulate when they boost themselves and desire to build their OWN NAME and forget those who are poor among them ? Such grasping and arrogance will NOT be rewarded beloveds. It is MY name that must be preeminent! The glory that man has is transient. The glory that comes from ME is forever, for you will be like ME when you see ME as I am. We will forever dwell together in eternity and nothing that you know now, can compare to the glory that is coming. The one who cares for ME, cares for WHO I care for! The one who loves ME, obeys ME. The one who loves me will think first about what I WANT, not what he wants. THAT is SURRENDER ! So what kind of glory do you want? The transient kind of this world’s hurrahs and rewards, or the ETERNAL kind? Then come to ME, and allow me to burn away everything that cannot withstand the test. For I am like a refiners FIRE and a fuller’s SOAP. And I will wash you clean from the traces of filth of this fleeting world. I will burn away all the dross, and you will come forth as GOLD !!!” Isa 4:4-6 NKJV When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and purged the blood of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning, 5 then the LORD will create above every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and above her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night. For over all the glory there will be a covering. 6 And there will be a tabernacle for shade in the daytime from the heat, for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and rain. Job 23:10 AMP But He knows the way that I take [He has concern for it, appreciates, and pays attention to it]. When He has tried me, I shall come forth as refined gold [pure and luminous]. [Ps 17:3; 66:10; James 1:12.] 185

Rise up in praise, Shout to the heavens and walk in the confidence of My love for you, for I will NEVER leave you nor forsake you. FACE the enemy with confidence, and not FEAR and trepidation.

DEC 19th, 2006 The new world order proceeds with their plans for annihilating My people, but I have plans that many don’t know of to spoil some of their plans. Are you willing to come to me and listen to MY VOICE over the din of all the bad news and changes ? For I have so much to share with you and to show you. Remember always that you are strangers here, and that a NEW WORLD is coming, that of MY KINGDOM over all the kingdoms of this world! My KINGDOM has more power. YOUR GOD is greater and the waves of MY PRESENCE will soon wash away the filth of the daughters of Jerusalem who are willing to receive the washing of the Holy Spirit that I have planned. For I will cleanse My garden and empower My beloveds for the war that is at hand. 186

I am the LORD and there is no one else who can help you in this hour. Do not be deceived, for deception in this nation is great in this hour and many lies pervade the media and the minds of those who are unsanctified. But I have a demonstration of MY GLORY coming that will usher many into the KINGDOM. Continue to repent for the sins of the nation and the church, and continue to pray for AWAKENING for I am sending a WAVE of MY SPIRIT like has never been seen before since Pentacost.” Then I heard the song “ Blow the trumpet in Zion, Zion ! Sound the alarm on My holy mountain !” “Awaken oh sleepers and rise from the dead, and Christ will rise upon you !” Growing Stakes Dec. 30th, 2006 Priscilla VanSutphin www.upstreamca.org Insulated and indolent, the minds of men hide from Me. They do not want what I have. They do not want ME. They don’t see straight and they don’t forbear. Upon the brows of my people they put much wear. “I want what I want and my wantonness is never filled” The bowls are filling and yet they stay thrilled To the sound of clinking coins, and the drone of praise But they have grown weary of the Ancient of Days Surely in all this idolatry to things, The Lord brings judgment to the silence man brings. No longer the sound of prayers lifted up, No longer the music that fills the cup. But low I hear the stirring and the whirring of angel’s wings. For the remnant Bride to his ears worship brings. He startles and rises longing for her total surrender, For revelation kisses to her will HE render. The Spirit of Might rises in the hearts of men, As He pours out his judgments, and more trouble He rains in. Shaking and shaking the kingdoms of men, To the towers of power, wrath He does send. For those whose trust is not in HIM, On their faces are found much chagrin. 187
    • So many times He has warned and foretold, Of judgments on those whose lives are not sold. Mighty torrents of love in the glory He brings, Men suddenly hear of startling things. Bodies repaired, and diseases fully healed, Demons crying out, as the remnants are sealed. The hour of power is soon to begin, Explosions are coming to the remnant, within. The man-child is birthed in the hearts of His bride, And now the Redeemer stands at her side. Awesome in power, a rosey glow to her face, As His love shines in her as he unfolds His embrace. The union on earth, will be heralded in the skies. Now we will see an end to the lies. For God is breaking every chain on our souls. We will dance and skip like newly born foals. Arrayed in His mercy and clothed in His glory. His Majesty unfolds a whole new story. Favor given in just the right hour. Pride no longer stands in power. Arrogance is brought low, and the enemy he knows. His hour is short and he begins to snort. As the Son shines down on the hearts of men. Harvest is reaped and no longer men pretend. Weeping is heard to the ends of the earth, An end to all the laughter and mirth, As Satan’s rage assaults the sons of God, Martyrs flood the earth as the new church is birthed. Shock and surprise fill their eyes, as the sleep is torn away And the church no longer is at play, for it’s a brand new day. Legs grow out, and tumors fall down to the ground. AIDS is healed and brokenness is repealed. The dead arise, much to their surprise. The sheep they bleat as He turns up the heat. Fire erupts in every nation, FIRE of GOD hitting the earth. Driving away all that stands in the way, Taking with it all stubbornness, all slumber and the bray 188

It is a time for REVOLUTION to begin in the hearts of the young. I have planned a most special meal for these who have been fed garbage from TV, Movies and Music. I will SHAKE this generation loose from it’s bondage and use them mightily to declare My glory. Ps 138:7 NKJV Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand Against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me. I will not stop till every nook and cranny is searched out for I am jealous for My beloveds. Among this future army are apostles and prophets, and evangelists and teachers, and many pastors who will lay down their lives for another. They are a RADICAL generation in the hands of the enemy, but I will make them RADICAL for ME. PRAY for the loosing of their bondages ! PRAY for REVELATION to come to them, for heaven to invade earth, to invade their lives, their hearts, their minds and arrest the work of the enemy in their lives. Pray for me to work in their hearts, to open their eyes and ears. All across the world, the youth are restless and wanting. They are in great need of ME. They have been sold humanism and the gods of entertainment to numb them to what is really going on. They have introduced them to witchcraft in every form possible and the rise of this I MUST cause you to counter. Occultism increases 189

The whole world moves because of My Spirit. My Holy Spirit is a moving gyrating, pulsating spirit. The movement of My Spirit is a mystery to man unless He is connected to ME. When the Spirit of God enters a man He swirls around vibrating and causing trembling in his body. When He moves to deliver a man, that man often will be SHAKEN by the movement of My Spirit within him which comes like a whirlwind.” [ Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. KJV OT:7363 rachaph (raw-khaf'); a primitive root; to brood; by implication, to be relaxed: KJV - flutter, move, shake. Strong's Numbers and Concordance with Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary ] Job 38:1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind , and said, 2 Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? KJV 190
    • OT:5591 ca` AR (sah'-AR); or (feminine) ce` arah (she-aw-raw'); from OT:5590; a hurricane: KJV - storm (-y), tempest, whirlwind. Jeremiah 4:12-13 makes clear that the whirlwind refers to GOD Himself and His heavenly hosts. 12 A wind too strong for this shall come for Me; now will I also utter judgments against them. 13 Behold, he cometh up as clouds, and his chariots are as the whirlwind; his horses are swifter than eagles.--'Woe unto us! For we are undone.' “ Why do you tremble in My presence ? It is MY presence, My Holy Spirit moving in you and around you and over you to do and say what I want. I said , John 3:8 NKJV The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit. My Spirit moves where it wishes and leads where it wants you to go. Those who are connected to it will go in the direction HE goes and move in the direction HE leads. Why is it a surprise to man who is called by My name that I can move mountains and hills, yet He thinks I cannot MOVE MAN to do what I want ? There are many examples of it written down for you, yet men ignore what they do not want to believe.” Wind in John 3:8 = NT:4151 pneuma (pnyoo'-mah); from NT:4154; a current of air, I.e. Breath (blast) or a breeze; by analogy or figuratively, a spirit, I.e. (human) the rational soul, (by implication) vital principle, mental disposition, etc., or (superhuman) an angel, demon, or (divine) God, Christ's spirit, the Holy Spirit: KJV - ghost, life, spirit (-ual, -ually), mind. Compare NT:5590. “ I moved Jeremiah when he exclaimed: My heart within me is broken Because of the prophets; All my bones shake .I am like a drunken man, And like a man whom wine has overcome, Because of the LORD, and because of His holy words. [ Jer 23:9 NKJV] and I moved Saul to strip naked before Me and the company of prophets, and to lie on his face prophesying for 24 hours. This I did when he was filled with rage for David and wanted to kill him. [ see 1 Sam 19 : 23-24 NKJV So he went there to Naioth in Ramah. Then the Spirit of God was upon him also, and he went on and prophesied until he came to Naioth in Ramah. 24 And he also stripped off his clothes and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Therefore they say, "Is Saul also among the prophets?" ] 23 And he went thither to Naioth in Ramah; and the spirit of God came upon him also, and he went on, and prophesied, until he came to Naioth in Ramah. 24 And he also stripped off his clothes, and he also prophesied before Samuel, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Wherefore they say: 'Is Saul also among the prophets?' 191
    • “My Spirit can restrain, or compel as HE sees fit. You can be led or you can quench His leading, but if I want, I also can compel in ways that are much stronger and take over if His Spirit lives in you. Many of you have experienced this, but many are unwilling to believe yet that it is so. The teaching many do makes Me so weak and puny in the eyes of man, that people think they can then conform ME into their own image. So I am setting it straight with you. I don’t want you beloveds to misunderstand. For days are coming to challenge your beliefs, and are here in fact when men will mock every move that I make in and through you. You must also know that the spirit of man controlled by demons also can move people. You know of the man whose son was thrown often into the fire by an epileptic spirit. Do you remember that this was a deaf and dumb spirit, this epileptic spirit ? Do you know how many of these spirits now inhabit the youth and children because of the invasion of defamation into language and the abuses of men and women, boys and girls to each other ? This spirit has run rampant and once they have an “IN” to a person, they will bring friends that can attack that person’s nervous system, and affect other parts of the body. But it is all a ploy to keep them from hearing MY VOICE, and reading MY WORD, and speaking MY WORD. This spirit seeks to also cause division by making misunderstood what is said from one person to another to cause people to attack and reject one another. It is time for you to take AUTHORITY over such things and to speak TRUTH into situations that call for clarity and understanding. You must know the way the enemy works to help avoid the infestation into your families and children, your friendships and partnerships and networks. Every day in the music and on TV, and in videos, the people of the world are assaulted especially those who give into mimicking AMERICA. Shrouds of darkness are over the youth from all the death and violence in the music “culture”. IT IS TIME TO ARISE and take authority over these things. If you don’t have an understanding of how the enemy works how will you assault his kingdom, or rule and reign over darkness ? You must avoid the attack through curbing your own mouth. STOP calling others “stupid” “dumb” “crazy” and all the other words you prophesy unwittingly. Stop calling yourselves stupid, as you invite darkness to take a room in your house that is your temple. Don’t you know that you are the temple of the HOLY SPIRIT ? TAKE EVERY THOUGHT CAPTIVE ! Think, before you speak beloveds. You spend needless time fighting sometimes out of not realizing what you are doing with your own words. Now I tell you that I am bringing gyrations on the earth that will dispel darkness. I am bringing My Spirit to search through the earth and to shake all that can be shaken. MY WHIRLWIND will enter into congregations, into individuals and homes, and businesses and blow, and blow and blow away all the chaff. IT will at times bring a wind of FIRE that will burn up all that the enemy has supplanted in the lives of My 192
    • beloveds. So don’t be afraid of the winds of My Spirit. KNOW that as I blow on My garden, it’s fragrance will come forth. It is My LOVE that is doing this. It is ME molding you and making you into all I want you to be My beloveds. Know that though you feel you cannot stand, yet you will stand & when I get through with you will be a new person.” Jer 23:19-20 NKJV Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD has gone forth in fury — A violent whirlwind! It will fall violently on the head of the wicked. 20 The anger of the LORD will not turn back until He has executed and performed the thoughts of His heart. In the latter days you will understand it perfectly. Nah 1:3-5 NKJV The LORD is slow to anger and great in power, And will not at all acquit the wicked. The LORD has His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, And the clouds are the dust of His feet. 4 He rebukes the sea and makes it dry, And dries up all the rivers. Bashan and Carmel wither, And the flower of Lebanon wilts. 5 The mountains quake before Him, The hills melt, And the earth heaves at His presence, Yes, the world and all who dwell in it. GLORY, GLORY, GLORY Feb 15th, 2007 Scribe: Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org Luke 2:9-10, 13-14 NKJV And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them,"Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people….13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: 14 "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!" 2 Cor 3:18 NKJV But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord , are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. Ps 24:9-10 Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. 10 Who is this King of glory ? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory .Selah NKJV The Lord spoke “ Glory, Glory, Glory !” “ The church right now has more story than glory but that will soon change. I am not a man that I should lie, nor a son of man that I should change My mind. I AM striving with My church to transform her into MY CONCEPT of what she should be, and many are going through transformations right now. Lines are being drawn in the 193
    • sand. I am bolstering MY intimate education and leading you into new areas and I will continue to prod, and pry, and smolder, and conform you into the bride I want to perfect. I AM FAITHFUL and TRUE, and there is nothing I won’t do that I have spoken to you ! Hold on for the ride is getting FASTER, and the changes will be even more transforming as I stoke the fires and kindle the ovens of revival in your hearts. For I am faithful and JUST to do all that is in My heart to make you more like ME. My bride will not be in spotted material, nor grubby clothing. She will come forth like gold from Ophir. She is not going to be full of dirt and unbelief. Doubt has no place in My Kingdom. I am perfecting YOUR FAITH beloveds and removing all FEAR for those who are willing, even for some who have been unwilling, knowing the decision they would make in the end. Come away with ME beloveds and do not believe the lies and taunts of the enemy that is trying to steal your HOPE. DECLARE MY PROMISES and EXALT MY NAME in the heavenlies and watch MY GLORY FALL. As I AM LIFTED UP INSTEAD OF MAN, I WILL draw all men unto MYSELF. WAVES of MERCY are coming, WAVES in the natural are coming to some shores, and WAVES of MY FIRE will break down every door of opposition. It is MY mercy that I should judge, for my judgments are TRUE. MY judgments alter the hearts and lives of people to tear down the idols in their hearts. For IDOLATRY has filled the land instead of glory. One judgment did nothing to alter the lives of many, many still went on in their worldly ways, and continued in their lust and perversion. I will REMOVE all the complacency in this nation. I have heard the cries of the children alone and hurting. I have heard the cries of the homeless and wounded. I have heard the cries of My intercessors and I will do what is best for this nation of idolators. I WILL BLOW on MY GARDEN, and it’s spices will come forth. I am PRUNING. I AM BLOWING, and I am GROWING faith that is immovable and true. Those who choose the broad path will find it is treacherous and futile. Death is not easy, but necessary to glory. I did not call you to spend a life of EASE and COMFORT while others starve and are broken & abandoned. My call is to bring LIFE where there is death, and LIGHT where there is darkness. MY GLORY is transforming you, even when you think nothing is happening. SPEND YOURSELVES ON ME, and YOU WILL SEE FRUIT that ripens in the VINE and that never dissipates as you continue in close abiding relationship with ME. But if you choose the easy way, and resist My presence. Then you surely will be on your own till you bend to ME, and cry out for ME. There have been cool winds that have caused damage to crops. The north winds are like that. They are cold, and they test the fire in you. It will test your faithfulness under pressure. KNOW that I see all, and hear all, and will continue to BLOW till all the chaff is dealt with beloveds. PRAY and CRY OUT ! Worship and DECLARE ! For I AM WITH YOU. I AM IN YOU. I AM YOUR EXCEEDINGLY GREAT REWARD and I WILL 194
    • NOT DISAPPOINT YOU. Glory will spill out into the highways and byways. I will be your rear guard as you give to ME your time, your life. Guard your heart against the enemy of your soul. KEEP in MY WORD. MY WORD IS LIFE TO YOUR SOUL. Do not allow it to be stolen. BELIEVE and DECREE IT. Anticipate CHANGES that will bring glory to MY NAME. I am in the business of doing miracles and you will see more and more as My glory fills your hearts.” March 12, 2007 The Winds are stirring and all that is chaff will be blown away. There are a variety of winds blowing. There are winds of judgment, whirlwinds of fire, winds of justice, and winds of revival coming. I am blowing and blowing on My GARDEN of renown, and I will blow and blow until it is perfected in it’s beauty. I will also pour rain down to water it, the former rain and the latter rain together will soften the hearts of My people to do MY WILL ALONE. The winds and the rain will build up everyone who is IN ME. Those who refuse the washing of the winds and rain, will be purged with FIRE. And those who refuse the fire will be refuse. For I know Oh church of America how stubborn you have been, and I MUST bring the winds to cleanse and purify. I am plucking up, and I am bringing down, I am lifting and I am sifting, I am exalting those who exalt ME. I am escalating and accelerating and there will be celebrating among those who are truly Mine. Transfers of wealth are coming. Transfers of power are coming. Transfers of favor are coming. Transfers of kingdoms are coming. Transfers of authority and responsibility are coming. For I will no longer exalt those who exalt themselves and take all the glory for themselves. Kingdoms will come, and kingdoms will go, all the plans of man will fail in the end. For I have seen every plan made in secret meetings. I have seen all the treachery Planned on My people. Your finest hour is at hand My beloveds…so shut yourself in for a time and get MY PLAN for your lives, and get healed & filled up with ME. For I will break every chain that has bound you.” From: Moments Before Dawn Priscilla Van Sutphin priscilla@etpv.org April 1 st, 2007 www.upstreamca.org Have you understood this beloveds ? I tell you a great mystery. For the beast will HATE the harlot. He will not love her or give favor to her. Do you understand this ? He will only pretend for a time to tolerate her, and in the end will fulfill MY desire to destroy her. For she will try to destroy you. My wish is that you no longer worry and fret over the things that you see in the news, for they truly reflect the signs of the times. But I AM IN CHARGE and I will NOT NEGLECT those who love ME. I am here for you. What kind of a father would I be to not be with you in this hour, to neglect you and leave you alone ? You don’t understand me beloved. This is NOT a time where I will abandon you, any more than I abandoned or neglected Noah, Moses, 195
    • or Joshua, Elijah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach or Abednego. I AM the ALL WISE GOD, the ALL POWERFUL LORD OF HOSTS. NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH ME. Men tried to kill the apostle John and couldn’t. Do you see ? Can’t you see, he is the one who laid his head on MY HEART, and loved ME in a way others did not ? Would a loving husband abandon his bride to enemies who wished to kill her ? To the LORD alone belong escapes from death. Jesus alone holds the keys to death and hell. So what have you to worry about ? If you die, it means it is your time to die and come be with ME. For to live is Christ and to die is gain. But if I have yet things for you to do, then you will live no matter what anyone tries to do to you, including the enemy. I HOLD UP MY OWN. Even when they are rebellious as in the desert 40 years, their shoes didn’t wear out, they never went without what they absolutely needed. I WILL BE WITH YOU through EVERYTHING. Stay IN ME. ABIDE IN ME, and know that no matter what happens, I AM WITH YOU and you are with ME, forever and ever. This doesn’t mean that you don’t ready yourselves for what could happen. The wise man prepares for what he knows is coming. Those who are foolish neglect themselves and their duties. Faith is not the same as testing ME. Noah didn’t sit around saying, God it’s too much for me, you’ll have to make the boat. He did what I instructed him to do, because HE WALKED WITH ME AND LISTENED TO MY VOICE, and obeyed. If you want to hear what to do, then you must remain abiding in ME. I make Myself known to those who listen for My voice, who know how to WAIT on ME. So COME ASIDE beloveds and listen, and be still. RESTORATION is here for those who are willing to come, to quietness and rest. I LOVE YOU and am WAITING FOR YOU. ERUPTIONS are coming, and disturbances and violence all over the earth. I am not surprised, but many will be at these things. Chaos and havoc will erupt suddenly when you have not seen it coming. Men will be in fear and shock. Wars and rumors of wars are abundant. The greatest war yet to be seen is on the way, yet many slumber and are unprepared for what is coming. Many think they can allay the judgments, not really knowing the violence and wickedness behind much of what is going on. Some will be allayed only because of the prayers of My saints. But I cannot reverse what is in My Word. Every WORD will be fulfilled beloveds, and it is moments before the Dawn of a New Age. I am not speaking of the new age you think of, that perversion of Hinduism. I am speaking of the New Millenium. Know that I have a few surprises of My own before the enemy makes his play. PUT ALL OF YOUR HOPE IN ME. PUT ALL OF YOUR TRUST IN ME, for I LOVE YOU as no other does.” April 16th Priscilla Van Sutphin priscilla@etpv.org www.upstreamca.org I am going to blanket you with My glory, and robe you with My righteousness as never before. Every chain will break, and every eye will see the debut of My bride in gold from Ophir. Nothing will keep Me from walking WITH you through all that is ahead. LEAN ON ME. Give all your concerns to ME. I will make all things NEW. I did this 196
    • on the cross. My blood paid the price for ALL your sins, and the sins of the whole world. But somehow, the church thinks it only covers SOME. NO beloveds, I died for all sins. The moment one surrenders to ME, all things become NEW. The old has passed away, and you become a NEW man or woman. And then My grace also sustains you through errors, trials and temptations, through good times and bad. Grace, grace, abundant GRACE is being poured out in this hour for all who will come. I am not limited by the feeble thoughts of man, or the limitations of your own mind. Nothing will stop My perfect work in you. Come aside, stay a while with ME each day to get MY perspective on things. Lay aside all your burdens. Lay them at My feet. I will care and restore to you all that has been stolen. I am brooding over you now. I am nesting and hovering over My Beloveds till they are made into the image and likeness of ME. Chocolate Icing Apr 26th, 2007 Scribe: Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org “I’m like the chocolate icing on your cake. I am sweet and yummy to the taste ! I have some sweet morsels I want to share with My beloveds. Ladies like sweet things because of their sensitivity. I made you that way so that when a man gets Married with you, you have perfect balance together you make a whole. But for many of you that have sacrificed marriage, or have failed marriages, I AM Your Lover, and I AM the Sweetness of your life. I love that ! Yes, I said, I LOVE THAT ! I love it that you look to ME for sweetness when you need it. I want to be there for you and to be the best thing on your plate ! I am full of love and kindness for you, because I delight in you My beloveds. There are many men also who have a taste for things that are sweet, and not sour, and a woman can add so much love to his life, that it will tenderize the rough places in him. There are others that are too wild and untamed to appreciate a woman, or even who have such anger seething inside that they are incapable of love, but only violence. But I AM LOVE, and I love you. I have wrapped you with bands of love, even though you have not understood it all, nor everything I have put you through. I have delighted in you when I see you persevere in believing ME, even when everything around you says otherwise. Even when the devil has tormented you and tried to make you feel as though you had failed me one to many times, and are now disqualified. I am proud of you when you withstand his lies, and tell him to get out ! I am proud of you when you fail and you come to ME, and open your heart to ME, even though you feel ashamed. I am proud of you when you fail, because it doesn’t stop you from trying again and again to please ME and to overcome all the obstacles in your lives. I want you to REJOICE when you fail, after you get over your initial pain when you 197
    • realize you’ve blown it. I want you to come to me in the secret place and worship. Show the enemy that no matter what happens, YOU CAN RUN TO ME. My tender mercies endure forever. Beloveds, I want for you to also have that same tenderness and understanding for those who have not yet been broken as you have ! I want you to keep believing for miracles. I AM FULL OF MIRACLES I WANT TO PERFORM through you. But you know that unless you were broken and bruised, and came to the end of your SELF life, that you would take that power and it would cause you to be puffed up like Satan was if your character was not more perfected. Broken vessels know that it’s NOT THEM that are doing the miracles, that it is ME doing them through them. I have MANY FAVORITES. Do not give in to an EXCLUSIVE gospel from anyone who thinks THEY are the beginning and the end of things. I AM THE ONLY BEGINNING AND END. I AM GOD ALMIGHTY, THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE. I WILL NOT SHARE MY GLORY WITH ANOTHER. I AM INCREASING MY GLORY in you as you choose ME over other distractions. I AM increasing MY LOVE, PEACE, JOY, and all that I AM in you as you rest and minister to ME, and as you rest and LET ME MINISTER TO YOU ! I have set many of you apart from others that you might put ME FIRST. If you are easily distracted by the needs of others over MY NEED to have you near ME, then I must do things to get your focus back on ME. It is in contemplating, beholding and communion with ME, that LIFE is given you. MY LIFE. IT IS ONLY when you TAKE TIME with ME, and commit yourselves, setting your sites on what I WANT, that you can hear from ME more clearly. If you are not DEAD to self yet, then you will continue holding on to the things of this world, to reputation & what people think of you, to people, to things, to houses, cars, books, comforts, etc. There is nothing you have that I can’t replace. There is nothing you want that I can’t provide. I purchased a REST for you, that you wouldn’t HAVE TO STRIVE. If you find yourself anxious, it may be that you are striving and not just resting IN ME and ALLOWING ME to take control of everything in your life. I DIED that you could have a life of abundance in ME. The priest’s portion was ME. It wasn’t land. It wasn’t houses and rich things of this world, though they were provided for by the rest of Israel. Their portion was ME. Beloved it is not that I don’t want to bless you with things, and finances but it is so that you can be a blessing to others and do the work of MY KINGDOM, NOT TO BUILD YOUR OWN KINGDOM. For the moment you entertain me, myself and I, then you fall to pride. It is NOT YOUR CHURCH. It is My church. I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. You are NOT to lord it over those who are less gifted than you that you have something they don’t have ! You are to walk in HUMILITY if you want to bear the yoke of MY KINGDOM and GLORY. Humility doesn’t think make others feel lesser than. I have great love for the weakest of individuals for I know the great burdens they have had to bear - Even those who are so angry and raging. 198
    • I know that person who has had to bear rejection all their life. I know what it takes to get it all out of them. I know the defensive pride and rage inside a woman who was molested as a young girl and couldn’t understand how a parent could do that ! I KNOW and am angry too. But I also know the pain of the perpetrators. I know who was hurt themselves, and who is just wicked because they choose to be. I know who would choose ME eventually. You must understand that I don’t condone any violation of the LAW. I AM HOLY and I WANT YOU TO BE HOLY. But I know it takes longer for some than others, because of the wickedness done to them. I know what it takes to make the blind see, the deaf to hear, spiritually speaking. I know the deep things of a man’s heart. I KNOW ALL THINGS. I alone am the WISE GOD. I am about to turn up your discernment and your wisdom AS YOU RELY ON ME for an opinion about others, as you seek me on their behalf ! Every time you rely on your own wisdom, you defy the Most Holy Spirit within you ! Everything you do, I want you to do in LOVE, not in a sense of obligation. If you have a sense of obligation, then check yourself for striving. I want you to do what I tell you to do. But for that you must listen for MY VOICE. You can’t just give me 15 minutes in prayer, and rush away and spend the rest of the day not even giving ME a thought. If you really want to hear, you must be a good listener, of the WORD, and of The WORD of LIFE. Worship ME in the beauty of holiness I said. I have given you GRACE to come into the throne room whenever you want. THINK about that ! Think about how the high priest alone could come near. But now the way has been opened for you forever to come before ME, to come into MY VERY PRESENCE. ONLY THE ENEMY KEEPS YOU FROM IT ! He tries to convince you you aren’t worthy, or that I will have given up on you. But I SAID, My love endures FOREVER. MY LOVE NEVER FAILS. Endure hardship like a good soldier. DO NOT turn away from the privilege I died for, so that you could come into My arms of LOVE. And learn to give the same grace I’ve given you in forgiving all you have done, to OTHERS !” Submarine Dream Priscilla Van Sutphin 5/5/07 www.upstreamca.org I had this dream many years ago now…but had not published it that I remember: I and many other women were boarding a huge submarine. We all had our baggage with us, and when we got to the quarters there were 4 bunks to a room, and not much space, so we had to get rid of some stuff. Then almost as soon as we got settled and used to that, we were moved to another space, and it was even smaller. Then it happened again and again, till we had hardly 199
    • any baggage left. Then there were many of us put in this compartment that seemed to be in the bottom of the sub, and the walls and ceiling were made of a rubbery material, like what is used for life boats. Suddenly water began to come in filling up the compartment and some women were panicking. I took a large knife I somehow had, and cut a huge slit in the ceiling as a means to try to get out, but instead, MORE WATER CAME. But this time, at the same time A portal opened on the side which let some of the water out, and there was this really long Tube also made of that material only more clingy. We were able to one by one, enter it and wriggle down the tube. It felt more like a womb. As we got closer to the end of the tube, we were SHOT OUT into the open sea ! Interpretation Women often represent the church, and in reflecting on this again today while praying with a friend, I thought at first it was referring to women specifically, older & younger single women. And I don’t doubt that is why the Lord was showing it to me, as He has put on my heart to in future care for older women prophets, and to have a school of prophets for the younger women so they can be healed and nurtured by the elder women. But it also stands for the CHURCH, in it’s many different streams. There is a remnant in all of the church. Yes , even the Catholic church, who really love Jesus and are called to nations. The baggage is our emotional baggage, and spiritual baggage, the things that hold us down and back. Steadily God is removing all of that to prepare us for a birthing. That is why the tube was like a womb. He is birthing Christ in us, the Hope of GLORY. The Water is a Holy Spirit flood, and He told me in ’89 that people would FEAR because of the flood of people that will overwhelm the church when He does what He is about to do. But we are NOT to fear, but be VERY dependent on HIM. I cut a hole in the roof of the room, and it let in more water. The PROPHETS are to be USING THE SWORD OF THE WORD to speak forth things that will GIVE LIFE to the DRY BONES, and through doing that, the door will open that will lead many out of bondage and from all hindrances to their going forth into the SEA OF PEOPLES. I was getting confirmation this week while praying for someone that that time is NOW. I feel we are to have a forum for prayer that does this with seasoned warriors who will pray for one another and help each other in destroying the bands/chains of the enemy who has been used to temper us, but who for many is now HINDERING us best he can, though nothing can stop what GOD wants to do. We need to be interdependent and pray for one another, with honesty and compassion to bring forth the end times company. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 200
    • 5/5/07 Also today while praying with Brenda, we were coming against the roots of freemasonry in America, asking God to take an axe to them, and I saw a vision of a huge axe, coming down on the stature of LIBERTY. I took that as an answer to the prayer we were praying. The statue of Liberty can stand for other things, but to me, it is a symbol of freemasonry, as it was dedicated to the freemasons here from those in France when given. I praise the Lord that HE will do this also in the church, to expose the hidden things of darkness in leadership and cause conviction to fall, that leaders in the church will REPENT from mixing it with Christianity. There is NO POSSIBLE mix the rituals are full of idolatry and witchcraft. Continue to pray for this issue, as I feel it is KEY in turning America around, as these roots go back to the very beginnings of America and Francis Bacon who sent men from secret societies here to build what they thought would be a utopian society. If you want to learn more on this, there are two DVD’s available from Cutting Edge Ministries on this topic. Just do search and type in freemasonry. Also I have many articles and links on my witchcraft page to information about freemasonry. www.upstreamca.org/witchcraft.HTML http://cuttingedge.org/search.cfm It’s about half way down the page and called Secrets of America’s Beginnings: THE NEW ATLANTIS 5/8/09 Priscilla Van Sutphin priscilla@etpv.org www.upstreamca.org …”I AM coming again like a mighty rushing WIND. I will ROAR over My people and break the chains of affliction and torment, of bondage and distress. For I have promised freedom from death. I have promised you LIFE ETERNAL. So put away all carnal thinking. Put away your own ideas of what you think I should or shouldn’t do, and LEAN ON ME for all the answers beloveds. I AM Your BELOVED and you are Mine ! There is nothing I won’t do for radical lovers, so give your WHOLE heart to ME. Give everything that weighs you down. Cast ALL your cares upon ME. Lay down all your worries and concerns at My feet. I AM your ETERNAL TREASURE. Am I not worth more than gold, more than your house, more than your things ? Depend on ME. For much of what is going to come will bring the enemy’s confusion upon the sons of men. But I want golden vessels and I am refining you in the fires, and you will come forth as GOLD, but you need to lay down your life, not cling to it. LAY IT ALL DOWN BELOVEDS. Ask ME for the GRACE to do it ! I am mercy and I am grace, I am love and I will see you through anything that comes. But you MUST LAY DOWN YOUR LIFE to save it. The world will be in consternation over what I do in and through you. They will be dismayed and in great turmoil who have hated me, and sought their OWN way. My GLORY is going to exponentially increase such that even you will be in astonishment at what I do! So prepare your hearts for habitation. 201
    • Make ME your earnest and only Desire! RENEW your first love for ME.” Terror in the Night June 7th, 2007 Scribe: Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org I sing a song about tears and laughter, I sing a song about the hereafter. Love and mercy, truth and justice have been laid aside Cups of wrath have filled up on the inside. But here comes a cup, it is turned upside down Wreaking havoc, on the other side of town. Faith has run weak in many a pew, The faithful chosen are yet but a few. Love lays lost in a closet of despair Many are wondering if I’m really there. Seeing so much that brings heart to woe Is hard on My beloveds, so here comes the snow… I speak metaphorically, of course, and that is hard. But I know those whose hearts have been dealt a difficult card. In many nations the people starve and bleed. While here men have gone crazy for entertainment and greed. I’m not unaware as many do think. So I’m waiting for those who will cause a big stink. I look for the one who gets righteously discontent. I listen to the one whose passion is intense. I hear the one who is crying in their bed. I see those starving for more of Me, they have said. I’m coming down to shake the heavens and earth. But will you be glad or be filled with mirth ? The glory is not what many do think. It’s not something to play with, or to just take a drink. Drinks are for sharing… Drinks are for caring What happens to others is important to ME. But will the blind eyes open and be glad to see thee ? 202
    • You know I said that faith would wain. Don’t be discouraged by the hate and disdain. Keep your eyes on Your KING, For to your heart I will bring Days filled with laughter and hope of which to sing For all the startling miracles will forthwith spring. People will be in confusion and hoping for relief. I will comfort the broken, with your arms subdue grief. Open your heart and open your homes, For the lost will come running, as the sirens do groan. Do not be cast down, nor feel the pain of the wicked. Easy I know to say, but I’m heralding a new day. A DAY OF FREEDOM like you have never before seen. A day of restoration and great GRACE for those who are lean. I’m filling you up on the inside with more of ME. The same you will never again be ! A new thing springs forth in this hour you see. Ever fruitful will I make your soul, like a tree. Leaves for the nations to be poured out in their souls Open your heart and I will fill your mouth ! I will make you My jewels, sparkly and clean. I am polishing and shining bright, like no one’s ever seen. Fire it consumes I turn up the flame Higher and higher you will go Till you GO in MY NAME. “Urike People” Dream Dream 6/26/07 Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org What part I remember is that there are these people living in cliffside dwellings that look almost like bird’s nests on the side of a huge cliff near the beach. It is right on the water. At night the evening tide brings the water over the level of many of their homes. Most of the homes were not well made enough to live underwater. I remember seeing like thin flaps only covering the top of the windows, such that water would seep in and could drown them. In next scene it is morning, and…. 203
    • One couple says it doesn't affect their health, but Sally says, "but it does ! This morning they seemed congested, look," and they looked grey. They didn't put adequate closure on the huts built into the mountainside cliff, yet they thought they were safe with just strips of rubber and plants. It got late and were were very agile, Sally and I, climbing along the balconies of these cliffside homes to get to the top of the waterline and went up above the water, and I hear someone say, "They are the URIKE people". Interpretation: There are those who have built their homes, meaning living their lives, trusting in themselves more than God. They are in delusion, making adobe like homes on the side of huge cliffs. Meaning they are in precarious position. And they think the water will not go over their heads, or have an effect on them . This means many believing and trusting that circumstances will not touch them, that the troubled waters that could batter against their "homes" will not affect them. But in fact, they are like dead men walking [ looked grey ], not realizing it. Sally & I represent a remnant of youth [ she is 21] and older adults who are aware of what's really going on and are moving up to the top of the cliff for safety so as not to be battered by the coming TIDES of trouble that could drown us. [Remnant’s home is in heaven, & we stand on higher ground] In the natural, I wouldn't consider myself agile at all anymore, whereas Sally in reality is. But as we moved together to the top I was able to move with her without any trouble. Not putting adequate closure I believe refers to Christians who have not gotten the healing they need of their past who are in deception. Many of us still need healing, but this refers I believe to those who have chosen their delusion, like not wanting to believe anything bad could happen even though the signs of end times are definitely here. And now are in a very precarious position. "They are the Urike people" which is a fictious village in ANIME film/games. "The main character of Final legend [ a game ] is orginally from Urike village he is now a warrior out to help those in need he gradually lets his sense of justice out weigh his brain and is known to run head first into battle without thinking of the consequences." [ quote from website ] This gives even more clarity showing it is those who are in delusion trusting in the present administration thinking he is right in going to war, not realizing the consequences that may befall this nation 204
    • From: “Return of the King” Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org priscilla@etpv.org July 8th, 2007 …”The good news is I AM AT HAND. TIME IS SHORT. I AM COMING on the wings of the WIND. I AM pouring out MY SPIRIT on all flesh. MY LIGHT will shine upon the hearts of men, and they will know their sins in comparison to the holiness of MY PRESENCE. MULTITUDES IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION. MULTITUDES ! So REJOICE daughter of Zion. For I will ROAR over you ! And I will ROAR THROUGH YOU to free others from their chains and bondage. I AM THE LION OF JUDAH. AS YOU GIVE YOURSELF TO WORSHIP ME, I WILL SET UP AMBUSHMENTS AGAINST THE ENEMY THAT WILL TAKE DOWN STRONGHOLDS, THAT WILL DESTROY THE WORKS OF DARKNESS. Brandish your tambourines oh daughters of Zion, DANCE oh sons of men. For YOUR KING COMES TO YOU. SUDDENLY I WILL COME. AND you will be changed. Do not give in to discouragement. Remember how I waited for LOT? Be patient, for I will change the face of the CHURCH. I WILL ARISE, for I have a controversy with the nations and I will judge between the wicked and the righteous. I will arise and reap, and I will be exalted among the heathen. For I will show signs in the heavens and earth, and wondrous works will YOU do in this hour. I will reveal the secrets of men’s hearts. I will RESTORE those who surrender to ME with power and might you have not seen for centuries. What you have seen even in recent moves is NOTHING compared to what I am about to do. SO HOLD ON TO YOUR HOPE, for hope deferred makes the heart sick. AND I AM YOUR HOPE. I AM YOUR STRENGTH. I AM YOUR HIGH TOWER. I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU ! I am executing a LOVE REVOLUTION among the youth and young adults, and children, not just the adults, and older saints. What will the children do when what you have not prepared them for comes? Do you not see the responsibility I gave you to train them up in the WORD? To train them to REIGN in MY KINGDOM AUTHORITY? They are the church also. I WILL USE THEM MIGHTILY. If you will not teach them how to be intimate with ME, I WILL. FOR I DESIRE THAT THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME UNTO ME AND SUP WITH ME ALSO. What I pour out is not just for the mature. IT IS FOR EVERYONE ! MY GRACE WILL BE ABUNDANTLY POURED OUT. THERE WILL BE NO EXCUSE. MEN WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE THE GLORY. For I do a NEW THING in your midst ! YOU WILL NOT COME HOME WITH ME, TILL I SAY YOU COME HOME. YOU WILL FINISH YOUR RACE, AND YOU WILL OVERCOME, FOR I FOREORDAINED YOU FROM BEFORE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH. I KNOW THE BEGINNING FROM THE END. I AM ALIVE AND LIVE FOREVERMORE, and he who endures to the end will overcome. To the LORD alone belong escapes from death. CLING TO ME. 205
    • WORSHIP the Father in Spirit and in Truth. RISE UP OH MIGHTY WARRIORS and WAR AGAINST THE ENEMY with the WORD. HOLD ON TO the PROMISES I HAVE GIVEN YOU. SPEAK THEM OUT. DECLARE THEM. PROCLAIM THEM IN THE HEARING OF THE ENEMY. STAND ! DO NOT MOVE FROM FAITH. WIELD YOUR SWORD ! FOR I AM THE LORD OF GLORY, STRONG AND MIGHTY IN BATTLE !” Hab 3:19 AMP The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds' feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]! From: Full Restitution July 19th 2007 Priscilla Van Sutphin priscilla@etpv.org www.upstreamca.org “ I AM about to make full restitution to those who are Mine. I will tear away all the chains of the enemy and the deceits he has implanted, and I will pay him in full for all the harm he has done Mine. I will pour out on his kingdom the wrath I have reserved and those who follow him. I will pay him in full for all he has done to destroy My own. I will restore your sons and daughters ! I will restore your families. I will destroy the altars to him all over the world. I will pour out MY LIGHT and GLORY upon MY PEOPLE that they may be the LIGHT OF THE WORLD as they are supposed to be. Nothing that is hidden will remain hidden. All will be exposed to the light of My glory. The man who has set his heart against Me will be given sufficient revelation and witness to repent. But if he does not repent in the Valley of Decision, he will die in his sins. There will be NO EXCUSE for claiming ignorance on the day that I do this. There is no place to hide from My light. I will search the hearts of men and women, boys and girls, and all will KNOW WHO I AM, for what I do in and through you will be great. There will be no hiding your light under a basket any longer. You won’t be able to hide. You won’t WANT to hide. I am bringing FULL RESTITUTION OF MY GLORY ! RESTORATION is coming to all who will say YES to My sacrifice, and My love. Light will be extinguished for those unwilling to BEND to MY WILL, and MY HEART & DIRECTION. Those unwilling to BEND will be given over to delusion and the enemy. Hearts will be rent. Hearts will be exposed. Hearts will be changed in a moment. CONVICTION will come to you ALL for anything unhealed, and it shall be expunged if you bend to ME. But the one who fights against ME, will not be changed, but turned over to the tormentors. What you see in days ahead will try your souls. But DO NOT BE COMPASSIONATE to those I AM NOT compassionate to. YOU NEED BALANCE. YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND MY WILL in each situation. Do not find yourself siding with VIOLENCE and ACCUSATION, WITH UNCLEANESS, STUBBORNESS AND UNHOLINESS. When you discern the distortions, PRAY, DO NOT JUDGE. 206
    • DO NOT THINK, “ I would never do that !” You don’t know what you would do if I withdrew My grace from you ! It is by grace you were saved. And it is by GRACE you are kept from perdition. Your life is managed alone by MY GRACE for you. Apart from ME, you can do nothing good. APART FROM ME YOU CAN DO NO GOOD THING. Many will fall away due to FEAR. So pray I WILL CLEANSE YOUR HEARTS FROM ALL FEAR, and ask for MY LOVE that casts down all fear. YOU MUST ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR WEAKNESSES TO ME AND TO EACH OTHER, AND REPENT THAT TIMES OF REFRESHING WILL COME. STOP HIDING YOUR SINS. STOP HIDING IN SHAME THE HARD THINGS YOU GO THROUGH. FOR IT IS IN WITNESSING, THAT YOU WILL BE FREE. DID I NOT SAY YOU WOULD OVERCOME BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB AND THE WORD OF YOUR TESTIMONY ? TESTIFY THE TRUTH ABOUT YOUR LIFE. DO NOT LIVE IN PRETENSE AND PRIDE, HIDING BEHIND SHAME, when you KNOW you fall far from the mark that I SET by MY OWN HOLINESS ! BE HONEST. BE INTEGRITOUS ! STOP HIDING IN FEAR because this gives the enemy ACCESS to torment you and continue his work in your life. Lay out on the table all that is unholy, all you have been through, and all the deliverance I have brought you through, and all I am still working on. Do not lie to yourself and others in your shame. THERE IS NO SHAME to the one who KNOWS My sacrifice for you, and MY INTENSE LOVE FOR YOU ! Only the perversion of perfectionism and religious entrapment will cause people to hide, as if they should be ashamed of what they are struggling with or have overcome. I called you to have transparent walls, not white-washed walls in your heart ! This means that your life is an open book. There is nothing you cannot share with other believers or with the LOST at the right time or leading, because it is I WHO PAID FOR YOUR SINS and for the release of YOUR SIN DEBT ! You are WASHED in the blood, where you have admitted your sins. But where you hide, there is no washing, because it is not yet exposed to the light that cleanses and heals. CLEANSE your hearts of all the moldy, old areas of sin in the past. RELEASE the testimony in your heart to others who are bound. Do not LET FEAR OF DISCLOSURE, FEAR OF PUNISHMENT, FEAR OF JUDGING AND CRITICISM TO BIND YOU. LET THEM KNOW WHAT I HAVE DONE FOR YOU. LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BEFORE MEN THAT THEY MAY KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE THEM, HOW MUCH I WILL FORGIVE, BY SEEING WHAT I HAVE FORGIVEN YOU ! THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION IN CHRIST JESUS ! NONE, NONE, NONE ! YOU ARE THE HEAD AND NOT THE TAIL. I AM THE FIRST AND THE LAST AND IF YOU ARE HEIRS WITH ME, THEN YOU TOO SHARE IN THE GLORY THAT IS MINE, YOU ARE LOVED AS I AM LOVED BY THE FATHER. YOU MAY BE DARK, YOU MAY FEEL DARK, BUT YOU ARE LOVELY IN MY EYES BELOVED BRIDE, BECAUSE YOU ARE MINE. AND THERE IS A SMELL , A SMELL OF SWEET LILACS COMING FROM THE BRIDE IN TRAINING. IT IS THE SMELL OF SPRING RAINS, AND LILACS – A LOVELY FRAGRANCE AND AROMA, COMING OUT OF THE TRIALS AND PAINS YOU HAVE ENDURED. LET THE RAIN COME, LET IT WASH OVER YOU ! 207
    • LET THE HONEY OF MY LOVE DRIP INTO YOUR MOUTH. LET IT WASH AWAY ALL THE BITTERNESS IN YOUR HEART FROM ALL THE HARSHNESS OF THE TIMES OF PAIN AND SUFFERING.

I AM NOT SLACK, NOR HAVE I BEEN NEGLIGENT. THE ENEMY HAS WORN MANY OF YOU OUT, BUT NOW I WILL ARISE, NOW I WILL MAKE MYSELF KNOWN. IT IS ALL AT HAND ! BEHOLD I STAND AT THE DOOR AND KNOCK. BEHOLD YOUR KING COMES TO YOU SUDDENLY, LIKE A MIGHTY RUSHING WIND !!" Aug 6th, 2007 Priscilla Van Sutphin priscilla@etpv.org www.upstreamca.org “ I am instigating circumstances that will take you into the transitioning that I want for you. I am leading you and guiding you in the midst of turmoil to the abundant place in Me that I have for you , so that the purposes I have for you will be fulfilled in this hour. Tempest and storms, disasters and groanings will cause many to move into new positions and new places where I want to use you in this hour. There is a deposit of My glory inside you, but I am about to AMPLIFY My glory in you that the world will take notice ! My abundance is for demonstrating My Kingdom. My abundance if for sharing with the poor of the earth. I AM abundant in mercy and abundant in GRACE. I AM abundant in peace, joy, kindness, LOVE, and forbearance. I AM ABUNDANT LIFE. HE Who has ME has abundant life compared to others in this world. Without ME, you cannot DO any good thing. 208
    • Life and abundance are in MY HANDS. Yet many will turn away in this hour presuming that they can have it apart from ME. True success in the Kingdom of God is not measured by land ownership, how big your house is, or how well you do in business. These are WORLDLY measures. In other nations Christians do not have money to have large CD collections, stereos, book collections to explain the gospels, big homes and cars, etc. Many cannot even read. But they love ME with their whole heart, and they commune with ME daily. While you in the western world are lulled into passivity by your many things, they are passionate enough to suffer with ME. You worry about what THINGS you may lose. They have to worry about losing their very lives. Their women have their pastor husbands thrown in jail for months, and have no way to earn a living. Some women are left to beg for coins to feed their families, while you won’t even share your meals with the homeless and poor. You have cars and electronics to communicate with people in the world and are blessed among all nations, yet do not see that you are standing on shaky ground as your economy is at death’s door. Your governors and your congressmen have sold you as slaves to the nations, but you think you are free. YOU HAVE EYES BUT DO NOT SEE. YOU HAVE EARS BUT DO NOT HEAR. WHEN WILL YOU ASK FOR YOUR BLINDNESS TO BE HEALED ? When your blindness becomes madness ? Then will you see ? You think you are RICH but you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked, in need of eyesalve. Aug. 26th, 2007 Priscilla Van Sutphin priscilla@etpv.org www.upstreamca.org …”I will usher in a GREAT AWAKENING, and SUDDENLY I will come to you My beloveds. Hold on for the suddenlies are coming. You are on the verge of great signs and wonders, great breakthrough in your lives. But don’t think it will not cost anything. Your hearts will break at the cost. But MY NAME WILL BE MADE GLORIOUS IN ALL THE EARTH. My justice will be made known in all the earth. Prepare the way of the LORD. Clear the highway of all stones. Lift up your voices to the KING of GLORY. Ask for the King of Glory to come down, to come in, to exalt His name in all the earth. Who is this King of Glory, the LORD GREAT AND MIGHTY. THE LORD STRONG IN BATTLE. Do not be dismayed at the violence that is filling the earth. Do not be dismayed at the plans of evil men and women, in the church, and in the world. For I have overcome the world. They hated ME, so they will hate you. But he who endures till the end, I will bless with the crown of life. There is a ranting coming from My own house against those who walk in TRUTH. There is much skepticism, and doubt about all that I am doing, to draw My bride unto Myself. Many counterfeits have come. Know and understand that My time is near. LEAN ON YOUR BELOVED for I AM with you and will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Do not honor those who do not honor ME. Desire 209
    • TRUTH in your inner parts. Ask ME for the truth, and I will reveal it. Ask me to remove deceptions and I will. Ask and you will receive. I am building intimacy with My bride so that in the times of trouble, she will be kept from the plans of the enemy. You cannot imagine the miracles I will do. STARTLING miracles will arise that will capture the hearts of the lost, and they will come running into the Kingdom. Just when you think you are exhausted and worn and useful for nothing, you will see the greatest manifestations of My Kingdom. For I am taking out all the YOU in the things done, that only MY IMAGE will be uplifted and sought after. The world will know that I ALONE AM GOD. Do not underestimate what I will do, how I will do it, or how much I can do. I AM the MOST HIGH GOD, and there is nothing impossible for ME. Keep in MY WORD if you want to maintain discernment, for the days coming will challenge the best of you. CLING TO ME and you will be safe in My arms of love.” Sept 1st, 2007 Priscilla Van Sutphin priscilla@etpv.org www.upstreamca.org …”WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP, OH DAUGHTER OF ZION, for you are close to awakening, but still asleep. When I pour out the Spirit of ELIJAH, many will persecute those whom I’ve chosen to awaken the church and convict it of it’s whoredoms. WILL you be among those who confront and help pray and cleanse the church ? Or will you be among those who align themselves with the accuser and tell them to shut up ? You see I WANT SOME RABBLE ROUSERS ! I WANT those who are NOT AFRAID of the status quo seekers. I want those who will RISE up with the Spirit of John the Baptist and convict the cold hearted adulterers! But what will you do when I loose it ? What side will you take ? Will you be on the side of holiness, or the side of apostate churches who care not for the Son of GOD, and are full of unbelief, doubt and skepticism ? DECIDE THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE, for there is no compromise in MY KINGDOM. THERE IS NO WAY TO ESCAPE the persecution to come. YOU CANNOT PLACATE EVIL. You cannot make peace with liars and deceivers, the greedy and evildoers. Many yes will turn from their wickedness, but many will not ! Many will turn for a time, but be reticent to endure the hard times and betray many innocent lives. Have you prepared your heart in MY PRESENCE to be able to endure what is ahead ? ARE YOU READY ? ARE YOU READY beloveds ? Can you love your enemies yet ? Or are you still walking in your flesh, undiscerning and uncaring towards others ? Will YOU CARE ENOUGH TO SHARE WITH THE LOST. OR WILL YOU ALLOW THEM TO FALL INTO HELL WITHOUT ANY WARNING ? I WANT YOU TO COME OUT OF YOUR COMFORTABLE PEWS, AND SEATS FROM WITHIN THE CHURCH AND WARN THE LOST, AND DEMONSTRATE TO THEM MY LOVE. You cannot serve two masters, or you will love the one and hate the other. For many of you, your comfort is your GOD. You like being comfortable. You say “ I’m not comfortable doing that !” or 210
    • I just don’t think that I should be the one to say that to them. You don’t want anyone to make waves, to prick your conscience, or to speak of the hard things, yet the world is dying and in need of MY TRUTH. I tell you now, that if you will NOT GO, you will be taken to other places where you will HAVE to speak, or suffer great loss. What will you do when they come to you and ask you WHY YOU DIDN’T tell them ?” Sept 24th, 2007 Priscilla Van Sutphin priscilla@etpv.org www.upstreamca.org …”My glory will be poured out, but at a great COST. Harvest will come, but at a great cost in AMERICA and in the world. All over the world My people are being hated and reviled. Do not think that it will be different for you, for it is written that the just will be murdered in this hour. If you love your life, you will lose it. If you hate your life, you will find it. YOUR LIFE IS IN ME. I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. HE WHO HAS ME HAS ETERNAL LIFE. HE SHALL NEVER DIE. THOUGH THEY KILL YOUR FLESH, YOU WILL LIVE FOREVER WITH ME, FOR TO LIVE IS CHRIST, TO DIE IS GAIN. Shake off the lethargy ! Shake off the complacency and apathy that surrounds you and speak to MY PEOPLE. Speak to your neighbors. Speak to those I point you to. Speak what I tell you to speak, and do NOT cower in the fear of man. Do not despise persecution, for I tell you he who suffers with me WILL SHARE IN MY GLORY. Though they try, they cannot kill you until I SAY your time is up. SO WHAT HAVE YOU TO FEAR ? DO YOU THINK YOU CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE ? ESCAPES FROM DEATH BELONG TO GOD ALONE ! JESUS ALONE HOLDS THE KEYS TO DEATH AND HELL. Do not be afraid of he who persecutes you. REJOICE, and stand when I tell you to stand. SAY what I lead you to say, for the Spirit will give you utterance in this hour. I WILL SHAKE THE EARTH with MY ARMY ! I will glorify My bride as she goes forth bearing seed for sowing. I will glorify her in her suffering and in her witness for ME. READY YOUR HEART for union with ME, that in that hour, you will be able to STAND without fear and without shame. I AM WITH YOU UNTIL THE END. NOTHING will separate you from My love. My power will be magnified in vessels of gold. I am bringing you forth as gold and you will shine like diamonds as I display My power in you, as you go through the gates of glory. Just as the first martyrs glorified ME in their suffering, and just as those in China have glorified ME in their suffering, and have been brought back to life, many who die, will arise again, by MY power, and be a witness as Lazarus was. But as Lazarus, those who wanted to kill ME, wanted to kill HIM because he was EVIDENCE of who I was ! Those who raise the dead, and those who are raised will be hated, and sought after to destroy, as I put you on display MY glorious bride. 211
    • I will make the way of escape for MANY. But also many will die in this hour bringing GLORY to My name, and bringing forth more souls than you can imagine. The church is built on the blood of the prophets and apostles. Have you not learned yet, the truth of this matter ? Life will never be the same again My beloveds. The hour is at hand for My return. Do not hold on to the things of this world. For nothing in this world can be compared to the glory of the Son. Know that in this hour, the VICTORY is MINE. You will do GREAT EXPLOITS IN MY NAME. Come to ME, that I might fill you will all you need in this hour. WORSHIP ME in the beauty of holiness, for I AM LONGING TO BE ONE WITH MY BRIDE. Sept 30th Among the rulers are murderers, who care nothing for the sake of the people they are supposed to serve. There is injustice against My people. Children are no longer safe in their own homes. Parents are unjustly accused and unsightly things are done in hidden places and on high mountain tops. Murderous nations you are a stench in My nostrils ! And I will not hold my peace any longer. There will be justice by MY HAND, if no man will bring it, for those who are innocent. In many nations the wicked have pillaged MY people, murdered them and raped their children, yet the world and their representatives do NOTHING to stop it. Isa 42:1-4 NIV The Lord said: “REMEMBER MY COMMISSION for MY PEOPLE:” Oct. 12th, 2007 Priscilla Van Sutphin priscilla@etpv.org www.upstreamca.org And I felt the Lord was saying … “There is NOTHING I cannot change, and no one’s heart I cannot change. It is so hard for you to see that sometimes with all the evil around you, but there is nothing impossible with me. Even those who seem like beasts before you are capable of being subdued by My power and majesty. Trust in Me to show you who to pray for and who not. Do not go by your OWN opinion or what YOU think. Seek Me for MY OPINION and WHAT I THINK. Don’t waste your time praying for the unregenerate hearts who will NOT turn to ME if I don’ t lead you in prayer, then you are spinning your wheels for nothing. ASK for My wisdom and understanding in prayer. And just because I can do this, doesn’t mean I will do it in those YOU think I will. I will have mercy on whom I’ll have mercy. I know the heart that is weak and the heart that is strong. I am greater than your heart. 1 John 3:20 NKJV For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart , and knows all things. 212
    • Through My Spirit, many nations will be birthed in a day ! Many abrupt changes in leadership will change the fates of many nations. Although most now are arrayed against ME and My servants, yet I will have a great harvest of souls before the great and terrible day of the Lord. The dark continues to get darker. But the light that shines in you will explode into greater proportions of My glory, that will be SEEN on you. I have MANY ELIJAHS in the wings, I have many GIDEONS that will bring down the powers of darkness that rip up the lives of people and steal from them. I have many MOSES’ that will lead many into safe havens, and teach them the truth. I have TOO MANY CRITICS and too many spiritual cannibals that want to rip and tear at anyone who does wrong. It is good to recognize error, and to discern. It is good to know the truth from a lie, and who is teaching truth and who is teaching a lie. It is good to avoid the whoremongers, and deceitful liars. I want you to PRAY, PRAY, PRAY - To WORSHIP and declare My rule and reign in the church. To bring down the GLORY till it overtakes you and overtakes those around you. WAR WITH WORSHIP !

Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! [Zech 8:23.] 2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. [Isa 60:19-22; Mal 4:2; Rev 21:2,3.] 214
    • 3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. [Isa 2:2,3; Jer 3:17.] 4 Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms. 5 Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged; because the abundant wealth of the [Dead] Sea shall be turned to you, unto you shall the nations come with their treasures. [Ps 119:32.] Radiant: 1 a: radiating rays or reflecting beams of light b: vividly bright and shining : GLOWING 2: marked by or expressive of love, confidence, or happiness <a radiant smile> “Weariness has besieged many of My warriors, and tiredness from many long seasons of battle and desert living has made many grow tired, but still they have clung to ME in the midst of weariness. I am coming to RESTORE. My heart is bent on union with My Bride. There is a glory coming and I want you to be confident in the midst of darkness, that I WILL ARISE OVER YOU. I WILL ARISE. Do not give up. Do not give in to the torment and lies of the enemy. It was in the midst of great darkness, that I’ve done the most glorious deliverances. Elijah faced great darkness with only Obadiah who was faithful. Moses faced the darkest ruler of his time with only Aaron, surrounded by a court of pagans and warlocks. Have you not seen? Have you not read of all the glory poured out in the midst of dark times ? KNOW that I AM with you and most especially as times get darker and darker, that MY GLORY will be SEEN upon you. It will be more and more obvious who serves who in this hour. I have some turn around for the enemy in this hour, for I have HARVEST on My heart. I will not come till the earth is harvested. I have a vested interest in the LOST that so many are unwilling to even talk to. Your brother is anyone made in the image and likeness of God. But only I know who is reprobate in heart and who is not. Look to ME in this hour for who to help, who to witness to, who to take into your home. Do not assume anything. Ask and you will receive. Knock and the door will be opened. I am knocking on the door of your hearts and I will come in and sup with you if you open up your hearts. Allow ME now to make the finishing touches on you My bride, for the explosion will be soon that sets you on fire with My love. HOLD FAST to the truth of My WORD. Keep sowing seeds beloveds, for soon escalation will cause a great flood of souls into the KINGDOM. Do not be afraid My church, of the many who will come in great need . Seek My face for all that is needed and you will receive all you need to help them and clean them, and teach them. Look to ME for what to do, and how to do it. TRUST ME that the ride is getting faster and faster. LEAN ON ME in all things. I will not let you down. I will show you the way to go. I will apprehend all those you are praying for of your loved ones. Keep in prayer for the things you see around you. I am working and I will not forsake anyone who loves ME. I have LOTS OF SURPRISES on the horizon, so be expectant of GOOD things coming your way. Don’t focus on all that 215
    • is bad, but keep sowing in thoughts and words. Stand on My promises, for My Word never fails, and My love NEVER FAILS. Groanings will overtake many of you, I will apprehend you in situations you could walk by before, but now, cannot. I will show you those I want you to cry out for. Spontaneous prophecy will also burst forth from your spirit to bless others, including the LOST, that they might know that I know them, and that I have loved you and shown you My favor. It will start bubbling up, it will just bubble up out of you. Some things you will just KNOW. You won’t know how you know, I will just drop revelation into your spirit and you will know what is on My heart for another or for you. TRUST in MY LOVE FOR YOU. It is forever !” Nov 27th, 2007 Priscilla Van Sutphin priscilla@etpv.org www.upstreamca.org “I am building an army of intrepid warriors who will not back down in battle. These warriors are like Gideons in My hands. They do only what I tell them to do. They do not use brute force just to make a show, but they listen for the sound of their Master’s voice. When they run together, they do not break defenses. They do not fight with one another, but rather they try to understand one another and love one another. They are not controlled by another. They are MY SHEEP, and they listen to MY VOICE. I do not have many who are willing to lay down their lives in this way. I am looking for more who will count the cost. I am looking for those who will speak forth My Word, and speak WHAT I TELL THEM TO, knowing they may not be received. Even as I told Ezekiel that he must speak, even thought this is a rebellious and wicked people, so must those who are willing to follow ME. Fear will disqualify you as a warrior in this army. I know there is natural fear in your instincts, but I am speaking of those who though they feel natural fear, will go forth and do the exploits of their God without questioning, and without hesitation. Hesitation is a spirit . There are many distractors in this hour that would try to keep you from listening to what I want you to do. Self condemnation is another that will tell you that you are not WORTHY to speak for me, that you’ve made too many mistakes. But I am very fond of those who are failures. Why do I say this ? Because those who have failed, learn that there is nothing in their OWN STRENGTH to rely on. They know they are nothing compared to Me, yet they know that with ME, they can do ALL THINGS, and that apart from ME, they can do nothing. I loved Peter immensely, yet he made so many mistakes and failed so many times. That does not bring disqualification although he was fearful, he continued on when he was urged by Me and comforted by Me. He may have given up for a while, and thought himself disqualified, but I showed him that that is NOT My heart ! I love the broken and bruised ones, who undergo much 216
    • for the sake of the Kingdom. I love those who have been battered by Satan, but still get up every day and praise ME. These are My PRECIOUS JEWELS. These are My SPECIAL TREASURES HIDDEN IN DARKNESS. Money and gems are nothing compared to those who endure persecution and abuse and continue to trust in ME. THIS IS WHAT I FIND PRECIOUS. I am putting on the final touches on My “intrepid ones” and I will lead them and guide them and be at their side all the time. I will not leave you or forsake you. I will not abandon you to the world and it’s wolves. I KNOW YOU HAVE SUFFERED MUCH, BUT SOON ALL THAT WILL SEEM LIKE A DREAM compared to the glory that I will pour out ! I am forever yours and you are forever MINE. Do not think that there is anything I cannot do to turn anything around that the enemy has done to try to stop you ! I am the ALL POWERFUL ONE ! I AM THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, AND NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH ME. I WANT YOU LEANING BELOVEDS – LEANING ON YOUR BELOVED, MORE AND MORE Nov. 30th, 2007 Priscilla Van Sutphin priscilla@etpv.org www.upstreamca.org “TREMENDOUS change is coming to the world and church. It will not be overnight, but it has been continuous, and gradual, and now is escalating like a snowball that becomes a snowman part, adding weight. I have warned you again and again about these changes, so do not be shocked or dismayed. Some will say it’s the devil, but it is not the devil, except carrying out MY orders to expose and bring judgement; though that word is not too popular in ”Christianese” circles. Do not think that I am standing by laughing or happy to bring about such judgments. What the church has become makes Me weep. But what it will be when I am finished will also make Me weep with JOY. For I have longed to form My bride into the glistening gold she is becoming. Ps 45:9 NIV Daughters of kings are among your honored women; at your right hand is the royal bride in gold of Ophir . Listen closely to Me My bride as you spend time with Me. Be still and know that I AM GOD. I will perform a mighty thing in your time. There will be weeping and wailing, but there will also be joy inexpressible and overflowing for the remnant of My church. The weeping endures for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Out of judgment on the church will come forth a glorious, holy and powerful Bride ! Isa 60:2-3 AMP For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. [Isa 60:19-22; Mal 4:2; Rev 21:2,3.] 3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. [Isa 2:2,3; Jer 3:17.] My bride will not regard the status or wealth of a man or woman, but consider each person individually, and treat them as I would treat them, depending on ME alone for guidance. My bride will not consider position, or affiliation, or titles important 217
    • compared to the importance of MY presence. She knows all those who say YES to ME are My “favorites”. She will move to the beat of a different drummer, so to speak. She will move WITH the Spirit, and not in opposition to Him. LIGHT is coming to those in darkness and chains. LIGHT is coming first to My OWN and as it radiates out to those I love, they will become conduits of My LIGHT, GRACE & LOVE & POWER. They will become a formidable foe to the enemy. Nothing can stop what I will do in and through all I have chosen. Set yourself apart, for I come quickly on the wings of the wind and I send forth My messengers before you, and visitations and encounters will be more common for those who LOVE ME. Do not be afraid beloveds, for LIGHT will overcome DARKNESS ! Only BELIEVE. EXTRAORDINARY MIRACLES and ENCOUNTERS will apprehend those who are opposed to ME. ONLY BELIEVE for tranformations. For if anyone be in CHRIST JESUS, he is a NEW CREATION. REVERSALS of all kinds are coming, in the world, and in the church. LISTEN for the still small voice. Do not be in a hurry to leave My presence. STOP JUMPING OUT OF MY ARMS ! I AM WITH YOU. Do not rely only on what you feel, but listen to ME, and stay in the place of rest and receiving that I may pour into you all that I AM. – that I can impart to you My wisdom, My understanding, MY knowledge, MY revelation, MY LOVE, MY being. Do not give in to defeatism that is in the world, and in the false doctrines of men eager to gain by the loss of others.

I want to always RUN TO YOU for There is no one else I can run to LORD. You are the Comforter, and In Your arms is safety and comfort, peace and stillness, no effort required. Can you stay a bit longer Lord. If I fall asleep, will you still stay and Hold me ? I get tired Lord. I don’t want to get tired, yet there is so Much going on around me that distracts me from You. Please rein in My thoughts, that I would focus more on YOU. Please reign in My spirit That I would hunger and thirst for YOU. There’s no one here to hold me Abba. Won’t You rend the heavens and Come down ? I long for arms that will hold me close, but there’s no One here that will answer that cry Lord. Do not stay away long this time Lord. Will You come back quickly ? Can I hear Your voice again oh Lord ? It gives me such JOY to hear Your voice. Nothing compares, though 218

And YOU are the greatest gift. I wish I could Just give YOU away. I wish others would have ears to hear, and eyes To see. But so many walk in blindness, and it breaks our hearts Lord. Won’t You come now, and scatter the enemy of our souls, so that people Can KNOW YOU ? Won’t you come this time with MIGHTY power ? – be the hero of the hour ? Put silence to the mocking naysayers and unbelievers ? Look at how the wicked Mock Lord ? Won’t you shut the mouth of the enemy ? He laughs and Scours, and does what he can to rob and steal, to take and mock some more. But won’t YOU come down and even the score ? Won’t You come down and Show Your power, and make a display to silence the foe for all who are in the know ? We long for YOU in a dry and thirsty land Lord. Will You make us ready For the indwelling ? Will You cleanse us and wash us, and make us fruitful again ? You alone are lovely Lord ! You alone are all we want and all we need. But there are hungry ones. We see their faces from afar. Will You take Them too, and feed them and clothe them, and heal & deliver them ? Won’t you open their eyes also Lord ? Touch every lonely heart. Touch every Hungry child. Touch every homeless one, and outcast child. Lord have Your Way in this life today. Make a ruckus, Make a fuss.

Next I'm at the house of an overseer, and they serve meat, but as I take the second bite I see worms, thin tiny worms coming out of the meat.

Then I have some jewelry [valuable gifts] in my hand that is mine, but I have to walk through a jewelry store, to get out of this mall and I'm a bit concerned they think I might be stealing the jewelry in my hand so I try to hide it as I walk down this stairs and go out a door. No one stops me, it's like I was hidden from their eyes. [ Slipping through the cracks of the store which is the worldly church that is full of focus on money- trying to hold on to my gifts while having to maneuver in the world/church ] . Then when I walk down some steps there is John Edwards talking at some meeting and he's using this older man caring for a baby in a stroller as an example of a good freemason, and how freemasons are like anyone else, good citizens. I turn and yell to him, that Freemasons will be judged before God like anyone else also...because they are idolators and worship Satan...and I quickly walk out the door as I feel men approaching me. [Confronting with truth those in authority who are idolators/false teachers in the church and in the world.] Then he comes out to get in a car with guards, and he spots me, I see him, and in front of him, I just take off running and FLY away in the air, and he can see me flying away.

    • ”Truly, I say to you that I am not impressed by grandeur and aggrandizement. I am not impressed by huge buildings and grandiose decorated buildings. My concern is for the temples of God in human form. THIS is what I died for. This is what I came to save. I did not die for building programs and edifices. I came against traditions of men, and the status quo. I came to DEMONSTRATE My heart towards humanity, not buildings. And in this next year, many will fall away from the buildings and programs of men to seek MY FACE more than traditions of men, and idolatry to men. I am seeking out a people for MYSELF. I want a flexible church that is willing to lay down it’s life for it’s fellow man. Even in poor nations, they have learned this abomination of My word, to glorify structures, and programs, and men, and hierarchy. But I will tear down once again the greed and distortion that has filled My church. I will build a church that is fluid and flexible, loving and full of GOOD FRUITS. I am as desperate as you are beloveds to change the church that bears My name. This year you will see many more fall away from faith because of disappointment with what they thought they knew of Me. So much apostasy has filled My church. But now I will build a lattice work of believers that will intercede for each other, and not COMPETE with each other, but BUILD UP ONE ANOTHER, AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER, WITH MORE THAN WORDS. THAT WILL LAY DOWN IT”S LIFE for the BRIDE - Link, upon link, upon link. It will not rape My bride, or steal from her, or disdain her. Just as a plant grows up and stretches itself out on a lattice, you will see My true church begin to interlace itself with other true believers. They will agree together on what is most important.

The Day of Your Visitation Jan 14th, 2008 www.upstreamca.org scribe; Priscilla Van Sutphin tearsofthefather@att.net For many of you who’ve submitted yourselves to My crushings, this is the hour of your visitation. Many of you have cried out to suffer for My names sake that you would SHARE in My glory. You have asked for your pride to be broken and asked me to have My way with you, that you would be MORE LIKE ME. Beloved, I don’t forget those kind of prayers. But sometimes when I answer them, you forget that you prayed them. You forget that this is what it was all about. Have your way with ME YOU SAID. I am only answering your prayers beloveds. And believe Me when I say that those who have submitted themselves thusly to the Cross, will indeed be visited in this hour with My GLORY. I will not disdain your sacrifice of love for Me. I know that many are not quite there yet, but they will be. Pray for your brethren to bend to MY WILL in their lives, that they too will endure the day of My visitation 222
    • upon them. For I am not willing that any would perish. And I tell you that many will perish for their wickedness. Many have only given mental ascent to the throne of God, and not really prepared their hearts, and have not really submitted their lives. But I will use circumstances to humble them. I will have MY way in all that I do. You have asked for My glory and My glory I will pour out. I AM in the whirlwind, and I am in the Consuming Fire. I am with you, and I will turn up the heat of My fire that many more will submit and bend themselves to MY WILL. PRAY for those who have bruised you beloveds. Pray for those who have disdained you and shut you out. Pray for those who have taken from you and stolen from you. LOVE your enemies, PRAY for those who spitefully have used you. FOR I WOULD have a church that moves in LOVE and kindness even towards those they do not understand. Pray for their souls that they would be forgiven what they have done. Pray they will get revelation before it is too late. The hour is LATE. It is the eleventh hour. I am about to pour out on those who have been hidden in the shadows and saved for this hour. Many are not even walking with me. Many are your sons and daughters who have been duped into lies of the enemy. But know that when I get through, they will serve Me with ALL THEIR MIGHT ! They will begin to understand the things they have been through and why. They will understand COST of discipleship as no other generation. I am whittling away at a generation that has been deceived, and I am forming them into who I want them to be, despite what they have believed. They will be CHANGED in a moment. If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation. It will be with them like that ! As I touch them, they will become NEW. They will never be the same. All it takes is a touch. SO NOW PRAY FOR ME TO TOUCH THEM !!! Pray for their eyes to open and their ears to open. Pray for the eyes of their understanding to be illuminated by My glory ! For I AM DOING A NEW THING. I AM INVADING THE CAMPUSES THIS YEAR. I WILL invade the hearts of youth, and young adults. I WILL, I WILL, I WILL CHANGE THIS GENERATION and you will see amazing transformations. I will break the chains the enemy has put on them. I will do it in startling ways. I WILL SPEAK TO THEM and show them the way everlasting ! Put on garments of LOVE beloveds for they are love starved. They’ve had the things of the world thrown at them, they’ve had idolatry to entertainment, but they need LOVE more than any other generation has.

I'm recreating and restoring and resuscitating My church that has become a heap of rubble of dry, dead bones in many places. There are many who are alive and well, but there are many more who are dead and in need of NEW LIFE. I am illuminating the darkness. I am uncovering the darkness and exposing it to MY LIGHT. My truth is a great equalizer. It is a great weapon in your hands. You have underestimated it's use perhaps, but it is how you fight and as you declare it and proclaim it openly, without being shy or ashamed, it will bring LIFE into the darkness around you. It will separate the darkness from the light in the minds and hearts of many people. It is MY WORD that brings forth life. And it is MY WORD that shatters the darkness. I spoke forth words and it created new life in the beginning. There is much coming from the mouths of My servants that only brings death and destruction. But I WANT to bring forth SIGNS & WONDERS which come from preaching the GOOD NEWS. Jer 23:29-30AMP 29 Is not My word like fire [that consumes all that cannot endure the test]? says the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks in pieces the rock [of most stubborn resistance]? 30 Therefore behold, I am against the [false] prophets, says the Lord, [I am even now descending upon them with punishment, these prophets] who steal My words from one another [imitating the phrases of the true prophets]. Light a fire in your camp by proclaiming the WORD. SPEAK TRUTH, and He Who is TRUTH will come down. He is the Preeminent One. He is the Alpha and Omega ! He is the KING OF KINGS, and the LORD OF LORDS. At Him the mountains tremble. Will you also not tremble at My word ? Will you not bend to ME and to My will ? I tell you that the world WILL BOW. THEY WILL BOW. THEY WILL BOW. Speak what I have spoken. ASK and it will be given you. Knock and the door will open. Proclaim a shattering of the darkness, and it will be shattered. BEGIN to speak the WORD in agreement with what I SHOW you in it, and it will bring LIFE into the 224
    • darkness; MY LIFE. MY RESURRECTION LIFE. I have given you weapons of warfare. Now don't be afraid. I know you have waited a long time to see it. I know it's taken a while for breakthrough to come through. NOW IS THE TIME to SPEAK INTO THE DARKNESS and proclaim what I SAID would happen. Look at the scriptures in Daniel, Zechariah, Matthew. What does it say ? Look at Revelation again. What does it say ? Are you sovereign or AM I the SOVEREIGN ONE ? What you speak must agree with MY WILL. So worship, listen, and speak. It's like the stop, drop and roll game of children in order to save them from burns. Worship, listen, then speak ! It could save your life. Take time to be quiet and LISTEN between the two. Listen for the still small voice. Don't be in a hurry. WAIT on me. I am coming with FIRE. I am going to burn up all that cannot withstand the test ! MY WORD IS LIKE FIRE. It will perform what I've given it to perform. It will NOT return void. You need to fire missiles into the camp of the enemy. PROCLAIM VICTORY over the darkness.

    • Jettison: To cast overboard or off: a ship jettisoning wastes; a pilot jettisoning aircraft fuel. Or Informal. To discard (something) as unwanted or burdensome: jettisoned the whole marketing plan. I heard the still small voice say “jettisoned”. I feel the Lord is saying… “There will be a very prompt and sudden jettisoning of all that is burdening My own ! I have some things that have held you back that I want to get rid of. I have a plan to prosper you and bless you, and to use you to exalt MY NAME. But before I allow you to receive all that, I’ve been honing your character till it is more like Mine. If I pour out all this power and you are not willing to change your mindsets or attitudes, then the gift I want to pour out would be spoiled, so I have been working on you, purging you, and chiseling the hard places, that as I come to pour out GLORY, there will be a commensurate reception of it, rather than a repelling of what is HOLY. I am stripping My bride of all her OLD CLOTHES, and I am weaving and preparing her new garments to wear. Though in My eyes she is wearing a beautiful white dress studded with gold trim and diamonds. She will appear to be wearing burlap to the eyes of some. You see, I do much of My work in hiddenness. I do much of my developing, just like developing photos, in a dark room. It takes a while to do this. It isn’t easy. But what comes forth is more beautiful and clear. There is much yet to be done, but I am ESCALATING THE WORK and you will see the ENEMY JETTISONED OVERBOARD in your lives and the lives of your loved ones. I AM DRAWING THE BACKSLIDDEN AND I AM DRAWING THE LOST. I AM DRAWING THE BROKEN AND UNSIGHTLY ONES TO YOU. SO YOU WILL NEED MUCH MORE OF MY HOLY SPIRIT TO COPE WITH ALL THE DARKNESS ON THEM. SOME OF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN EXPOSED TO THE HORRID THINGS MANY HAVE BEEN THROUGH. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS TO BE RAPED AS A CHILD, OR CONTINUALLY MOLESTED AS PUNISHMENT FOR MISBEHAVING. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS TO BE RITUALLY ABUSED AND THINK THAT GOD IS DEAD OR UNAVAILABLE. I HAVE MANY VESSELS OF GOLD coming out of the wilderness, and leaning on their Beloved. I have much to say to you about your treatment of them. Many of you are just beginning your walk in the wilderness, but those who have been through it will NOW COME FORTH through this REFINING and will assume the positions I have held for them from the beginning of time. There is much to be done in My church. There is much arrayed against you from doing it. But you are about to see SUDDEN REVERSALS in the lives of those you have given up on, or have felt desperately hopeless about. I have a surprise for the enemy. I have a surprise for those who think they are wise, but are poor, blind and naked. And I have delightful surprises for those who have gone through the dark night of the soul, and much pain and suffering and have wondered over and over, “WHEN LORD WHEN ?” 226
    • A Rain of Mercy April 4th, 2008 Via Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org Upstream@etpv.org I was listening to music in the background and the instrumental was “jour de pluie” by Luc Gringas [ http://www.lucgingras.com/article.asp?noid=1&categ=1&langue=e it’s on the album Selah ] The notes sound like RAIN, and it is very comforting soaking music. Ps 68:9 AMP You, O God, did send a plentiful rain; You did restore and confirm Your heritage when it languished and was weary. I heard the still small voice say: “To the merciful I will show Myself merciful ! To those who are concerned for justice, will I show MY justice ! To those whose hearts cry out for the lost and broken will I pour out anointing to break the heavy yokes, so that My people will go free. Who can dwell with consuming FIRE ? For I tell you that MY FIREY PRESENCE is at hand, and I will consume all that cannot withstand the test ! Jer 23:29 Is not My word like fire [that consumes all that cannot endure the test]? says the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks in pieces the rock [of most stubborn resistance]? AMP I am accelerating the fire of My presence among you, beloveds, and you will notice a sharp increase in conviction, in deliverance, in healing among you, for I AM COMING TO MY CHURCH and I will TRANSFORM her into what I WANT. For many wolves have crept in, many enemies of the Kingdom, and spoiled My pastures, but as birds hovering will I surround you and deliver you. Isa 31:5 Like birds hovering, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem; He will protect and deliver it, He will pass over and spare and preserve it. AMP I will cause MY RAIN to fall, MY REIGN OF MERCY, the latter rains have only been a dribble compared to what I bring now. GET READY TO HARVEST BELOVEDS for THIS RAIN is for a purpose. It is not only to dance and revel in, it is for bringing GREAT HARVEST. I am reigning and I AM RAINING DOWN RIGHTEOUSNESS and HOLINESS, and CONVICTION WILL BE STRONG. HEARTS will be broken and REVIVED to MY PURPOSES over those of man. HEARTS will be healed of all the ravages of the enemy. Don’t grow weary in well doing, for if you persevere, you will REAP a great blessing ! For this RAIN OF MERCY will transform the most desperate SOUL. GREATER GRACE has come to you. The DOUBLE PORTION of MY MERCY is about to set upon you with a vengeance ! A vengeance against ALL that opposes MY WILL, MY PURPOSES, and MY KINGDOM ! I WILL FIGHT ALONG SIDE MY BRIDE, and she will KNOW that I 227

FALL ON THE ROCK OH PEOPLE or the ROCK will fall on you ! CLING to ME and I will cling to you. LAY DOWN all your ideas of what I can and can’t do that have been taught to you by mere men.

I have been preparing hearts of compassion, hearts that want to bring HEALING to the people, and I will do great exploits in these days. Dan 11:31-32 AMP And armed forces of his shall appear [in the holy land] and they shall pollute the sanctuary, the [spiritual] stronghold, and shall take away the continual [daily burnt offering]; and they shall set up [in the sanctuary] the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate [probably an altar to a pagan god]. 32 And such as violate the covenant he shall pervert and seduce with flatteries, but the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits [for God].

There is nothing too difficult for ME. And IF I AM FOR YOU, WHO CAN BE AGAINST YOU BELOVED ? My wrath is NOT for those who belong to me. My wrath is for the wicked, and the perverse. My wrath is for the pretenders to the throne, like the Pharisees. It is not for those who know Me, and love me, and lay down their lives for Me. GRACE is coming to many who are undeserving. But MY GRACE was always for the undeserving. Did I not forgive on the cross ? Did I not give grace to the humble, like the thief on the cross ? Was I not merciful even when people didn’t deserve mercy like the woman caught in adultery ? Yet I told her, GO, and sin no more ! You cannot trample My grace and expect mercy. Trampling is when you don’t care whom you hurt, or you don’t care if you sin. When your conscience has been so seared by the accumulation of unrepented sins, that you no longer worship ME. But for those who REPENT, for those who treasure HOLINESS & righteousness, I will fill you. If you thirst for freedom, you will be set free. I am anxious to do My mysterious thing. I am ready to pour out My mercy on My beloveds. Are you ready to trample the enemy as you get set free ? Are you ready to loose the chains of others ? For that is where My heart is beloveds. I am not giving you power and authority to just hoard. I am giving it for you to set the captives free. This is why I came, and this is what I live for. You are in a war. And wars have casualties.

Yes, I have eyes that see differently than you, and I can keep them on everyone in the world. And I have eyes that see for me, in angels and watchers. So yes, I have the advantage. But I want you to know how much I love you and adore you. I want you to know that like a good FATHER, I am excited when I get to spend time with you. I love just holding you in my arms, and watching you sleep like an earthly dad would. I speak to your spirit while you are sleeping. I pray for you while you’re sleeping and others are sleeping ! I watch over you day and night. I am NOT a neglectful Father. If My eyes are on the sparrows so that not one of them falls to the ground unless I know about it.

I do expect you to ASK ME IN. You know what ? I’m not only standing, but like an eager child at times, when he can’t wait to do something, I often am like that in My heart, eager to see if you will let me in, and how desirous you are to have ME as your company !

I want to teach you things, more than you want to learn them ! When love dials down in a marriage, and you find yourself in patterns that leave it less than exciting, you start waning in consideration for the other, and often people take advantage of each other.

NKJV Jude 24-25 NKJV Glory to God Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, 25 To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever.

Revelation 4:9-11 NKJV Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying: 11 "You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power;For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created." Radiant = 1. Emitting or proceeding as from a center; [U.S.] rays; radiating; radiate.2. Especially, emitting or darting rays of light or heat; issuing in beams or rays; beaming with brightness; emitting a vivid light or splendor; as, the radiant sun. .3.

I have no need for anything, but I desire to have love from those I have created, for I love YOU immensely, and I want us to be ONE. I am the Bridegroom and you are the Bride. You are My beloved and I am yours. That is something that NO ONE can take away. They may take away the things of the world, but they cannot remove My love from your hearts. 231
    • Generations hoped for what you are going to experience and see. The heavenly armies are increasing all around those that are My own, and those who are called to be Mine. It’s not like I didn’t know what would happen beloveds. Unlike you, I saw the end from the beginning. Nothing is a surprise to Me. What wicked men plot and try to accomplish is not a surprise to Me. I’ve had a plan all along, and it is woven throughout the pages of the Book. As you explore to see more of all that is coming, I will release My glory that you can see more of My plan. I keep nothing hidden of what I will do from My true prophets. There are prophets though with many different functions and roles. Not one prophet is the same as Another exactly. I have prophets like Amos who was a farmer before I called him. He knew about farming and growing things. I had prophets who were set apart for ME in many other ways, or in lives of quietness, and reflection. I had prophets that confronted great leaders and men in positions of authority, kings and priests. I had prophets that confronted evil leaders throughout history. Did not PAUL of Tarsus confront leaders in chains and fetters? Did not Aurelius confront wickedness ? Did he not put his life on the line for the Kingdom of God ? Throughout church history men and women have nobly stood against the waves of adversity to stand for truth and justice, and have laid their lives down as did My Son.” [At this point I’m wondering who the heck is Aurelius and found this … http://thriceholy.net/Texts/Millenium.html I did not know that St. Augustine’s first name was Aurelius…Aurelius Augustine - BOOK 20 of the City of God ARGUMENT: Concerning the last judgment, and the declarations regarding it in the Old and New Testaments At Bottom is what I found out about his confrontations with evil in his day. Some of this seems strikingly similar to some of the issues we are dealing with.] Asking the Lord to speak anything else He wanted to say… “Many people were martyred in the early days of the church and many will be martyred as the church enters it’s final hour. But there will also be great deliverances as you saw with the Apostle John and many others. Some people who are martyred will not feel the pain of their attackers because of My grace and protection. Some will be killed and come back alive to preach the gospel. Some will be translated to other areas of the world to preach without their attackers even being able to catch them. My church is a living organism. It has many parts, which have many functions. The head cannot say to the heart that “I have no need of you.” The hand cannot say to the mouth, “we don’t need you !” All are necessary, even the weak, remember ? Do not lie nor pretend, for I will shine My light on all that is hidden. See Mark 4:22-25 NKJV 232
    • Prepare for battle beloveds but do it MY WAY. Come into MY PRESENCE and imbibe in My glory, and I will make you radiant. I will make you into all I want you to be…all you want to be. Only I can do that. Man cannot impart that to you. Only I can. Seek the anointing that is from ABOVE. Seek MY FACE. Ask and you shall receive. Knock and the door will be opened to you. I am waiting for you. Come into My chambers beloved. For the days will grow heavier, and they will go faster. You need to be prepared with My glory. Remember always that My love will never be taken from you, no matter how the enemy taunts you. He is trying to get you into unbelief, doubt and skepticism, that he can steal and rob from you. But I AM FAITHFUL. I am the TRUE VINE, and you are My branches. Abide in ME, and I will abide in you. I love you forever and ever. NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING can steal My love for you.” Some notes on the life of St. Augustine of Hippo – the North African prophet http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/jod/augustine.html [ Donatism is the movement Augustine opposed, named after a bishop at Carthage some eighty years before Augustine's time to Hippo.[[9]] In those days the church had just recovered from the last bitter wave of persecution begun in 303 by the emperors Galerius and Diocletian. When fear subsided, Christians could breathe again and indulge in recriminations over the lapses of some of their number in time of trial. The official position of the church was that those Christians who had compromised their religion in time of persecution could, with due repentance and atonement, be readmitted to full membership in the religious community. But there was a minority faction of enthusiasts who insisted that cooperation with the authorities in time of persecution was tantamount to total apostasy and that if any traitors wanted to reenter the church they had to start all over again, undergoing rebaptism. Evaluation of the credentials of those who sought reentry would be in the hands of those who had not betrayed the church. The logical result of the Donatist position was to make the church into an outwardly pure and formally righteous body of redeemed souls. The orthodox party resisted this pharisaism, seeing in it a rigorism inimical to the spirit of the gospels. But Africa was known for its religious zealots and the new Donatist movement proved a resilient one. Even after official imperial disapproval had been expressed, the schismatic church continued to grow and prosper. By the time of Augustine's consecration as bishop, in fact, it looked as if the "orthodox" party was on the wane. In Hippo itself the larger church and the more populous congregation belonged to the Donatists in the early 390s. A constant state of half-repressed internecine warfare persisted between the communities. Popular songs and wall posters were pressed into service in the cause of sectarian propaganda. In the countryside, Donatist brigands ambushed orthodox travelers in bloody assaults Augustine began his anti-Donatist campaign with tact and caution. His first letters to Donatist prelates are courteous and emphasize his faith in their good will. He assumed 233
    • that reasonable men could settle this controversy peaceably. But Augustine quickly discovered that reason and good manners would get him nowhere. In the late 390s, then, Augustine resigned himself to a course of action others in the church had long been urging: the invocation of government intervention to repress the Donatists. Augustine was dismayed at coercion in matters of religion, but consented to the new policy when he became convinced that the perversity and obtuseness of the Donatists were complete.[[10]] Even charity itself demanded that the Donatists be compelled to enter the true church in the hope that at least some would genuinely benefit from the change. They could not be worse off than they were. Even when this policy had been settled upon, another decade of instability remained. Finally, in 411, an imperial commissioner conducted a detailed hearing into the facts of the matter, attended by hundreds of bishops from both orthodox and Donatist factions, and decided in favor of the orthodox party. From this time on Donatism was illegal and, though the schismatic community apparently showed some signs of life in remote parts of Africa until the Moslem invasions centuries later, the back of the movement had been broken, and at least the security and position of the orthodox party had been guaranteed. The principle for which Augustine fought deserves emphasis. Christianity was not, he claimed, something external and visible; it was not to be found in obedience to certain clearly-defined laws. Christianity was a matter of spirit rather than law, something inside people rather than outside. Most important, the church had room within itself for sinners as well as saints, for the imperfections of those in whom God's grace was still working as well as for the holiness of the blessed. Augustine drew the boundary of the church not between one group of people and another but rather straight through the middle of the hearts of all those who belonged to it. The visible church contained the visible Christians, sins and all; the invisible church, whose true home lay in heaven, held only those who were redeemed. Charity dictated that the visible church be open to all, not lorded over by a few self-appointed paragons choosing to admit only their own kind. In A.D. 410, the city of Rome, with all its glories, was taken by barbarians under the leadership of the Visigoth Alaric. It is customary to say that shock waves ran throughout the Roman world at this event, but it is more correct to say that shock waves ran through those citizens of the Roman world prosperous enough to care about expensive symbols of Roman grandeur. A fair number of wealthy Romans fled the city to country estates in Campania, in Sicily, and in north Africa. Enough of them showed up in Hippo for Augustine to warn his flock that they should receive the refugees with open arms and charity. Not long after the refugees settled on their African estates and began to frequent the salons of Carthage, the more intellectual among them began to wonder aloud whether their new religion might not be to blame for the disaster they had suffered. After all, the argument ran, Rome had been immune from capture for fully eight hundred years; but now, just two decades after the formal end of public worship of the pagan gods (commanded by the emperor Theodosius in 391), the city fell to the 234
    • barbarians. Perhaps it was true what pagans had said, that the new Christian god with ideas about turning the other cheek and holding worldly empires in low esteem was not an efficient guardian of the best interests of the ruling class. Most of the people who indulged in these idle speculations were themselves Christian. The "paganism" of these people was no revival of ancient religion, but only the persistence of the ancient notion of religion as a bargain you struck with the gods in order to preserve your health, wealth, and complacency. Augustine was invited by a friend, the imperial commissioner Marcellinus, who was in Africa to look into the Donatist quarrel for the emperor, to respond to these charges. He knew that it was more than a question of why Rome fell; here were Christians who still did not know what Christianity was about, how it differed from the Roman religions it had replaced. His response was a masterpiece of Christian apologetics, City of God, whose composition stretched over fifteen years. The first books, consoling those the Visigoths had frightened, were published quickly and seem to have done their job. But the work as a whole continued to come forth in installments, revealing a broad vision of history and Christianity. Marcellinus, a devout layman, also played a part in the the last great controversy of Augustine's life. One of the refugees from Rome had been an unassuming preacher named Pelagius, who had stirred up a moral rearmament movement at Rome.[[11]] Pelagius seems to have appealed particularly to affluent ladies whom he urged to set an example through works of virtue and ascetic living. He apparently had a considerable effect for the good on the conduct of those with whom he came in contact. But Augustine saw in Pelagius and his followers an extreme position exactly opposite to the one he had just rebuked in the cultured critics of Christianity, but one no less dangerous. Pelagianism, as we shall see in more detail later on, was theologically rather similar to Donatism, in that it assumed that people could, by their own virtue, set themselves apart as the ones on whom God particularly smiled. Augustine never met Pelagius, though the latter had passed through Hippo in late 410. Instead, he had to deal at all times with the "Pelagians," the most notorious of whom, Caelestius, was apparently a good deal more tactful and restrained than his teacher had been. While Pelagius went off to the Holy Land, where he became an unwilling center of controversy as he visited the sacred sites, Caelestius and others back in Africa waded into the fray with Augustine. Whatever the merits of the case, Augustine's side prevailed in the ensuing controversy. The authority of the papacy was invoked eventually--not without difficulty--and later that of the ecumenical council of Ephesus in 431. Pelagius and his disciples were clearly and soundly defeated. But the controversy did not end with the defeat of Pelagius. Augustine had to face further questions, as the logical consequences of the positions he took against Pelagius were examined by friend and foe alike. Both in Africa and in Gaul, monks and their leaders protested that the Augustinian theology of grace undermined their own ascetic efforts in the cloister. In Italy, the young bishop of Eclanum, Julian, engaged Augustine in a bitter debate that tainted the last decade of the old bishop's life. A 235
    • deep poignancy marks the old man's dogged defense of himself and his belief against a young, resourceful, and resilient foe. Old age and pressing concerns at home eventually delivered Augustine from the necessity of answering Julian. By 430, a band of barbarians had found its way even to Africa. The Vandals, who had first come from Germany into Roman Gaul in 406 and later passed through Gaul into Spain, had been invited into Africa by a Roman governor in rebellion against the emperor. The Vandals, like the Saxons later in the same century, proved to be deadly allies. In the summer of 430 they were besieging the city of Hippo as the aged bishop lay dying within. Shortly after his death they captured the city. Not long after, they captured Carthage and established a kingdom that lasted a century. ] Fighting Fire with Fire 11/16/08 Priscilla Van Sutphin www.upstreamca.org I had the impression today,watching and praying about the fires, that that’s what God is doing inside of our hearts, burning off the chaff, our idols, etc. [ When winds are NOT a problem, the firemen will light a back fire to burn off the brush so that a fire will not keep going , to prevent further devastation. It is a foolish thing to do with winds whipping around, but when the winds died down more today they were able to do it, and as I watched, I heard the Lord speak the above . ] “ I want you to fight fire with fire ! Light a fire in your neighborhood ! [spiritually] Light a fire in your workplace, in your school, college, in a park, at the post office, at the coffee shop…!! Light a fire that draws My attention and My glory and I will fight FOR you ! The enemy has put many on restriction through affliction and torment, through complacency, apathy and a slumbering spirit. But I will AWAKEN the hearts that belong to Me ! Sing to Me in the open and I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU in the open. Pray to me without fear ! Pray for others without fear of retaliation and I will retaliate against the enemy who tries to touch My own ! I am the All Consuming Fire and My fire will burn the dross and burn up the plans of the enemy. I AM the Almighty. When you are weak, then I AM strong FOR YOU ! I WILL FIGHT for you when you have no strength. I will fight with you if you have a little strength – I will even resuscitate you in the battle.

Do not think that they are to do what I tell you to do. Each man or woman has their OWN CALL. Do not judge what I do with others. There are many different types of vessels in My house and each has their own use. What I give to one, I don’t always give to another. Put away your envy and jealousies ! Put away your pride in thinking you know more than they do ! I give GRACE to the HUMBLE, and I lift up those who HUMBLE themselves ! The enemy lifts up the proud. Do you know how to tell the difference ? Men who are arrogant take the credit for themselves and insist on laud and support. Those who are truly Mine do NOT DEMAND their own way ! They persist in telling what I say, but the glory they give to ME. Those who seek PROFIT without extending themselves for the poor and needy will indeed reap what they have sown. I AM the ONLY One Who has the right to DEMAND laud, praise, honor or glory, or even obedience, YET I AM NOT DEMANDING anything. I don’t manipulate or coerce. Those who love ME, obey me. Those who are like Me, share in My suffering and demand nothing. They carry their cross and give grace, as they’ve received it.” No More Drudgery thru Priscilla Van Sutphin 12/13/08 www.upstreamca.org priscilla@etpv.org “I’m going to take all the drudgery out of healing and deliverance, and all the work that you do ! I’m going to pour out My Spirit like never before. I am increasing the glory and you will go from glory to glory in a moment of time. I have many surprises coming, just as there is much change going on in this nation right now, it will catapult into even greater changes. There will be much turmoil as I uncover all that can be uncovered. There will be much change, and repentance will start to flow like a roaring river. 237
    • My LOVE is from everlasting to everlasting. It is NEVER ENDING. I am not an ogre waiting for you to make a mistake, then pouncing on each mistake or fault. That is the function of the devil. He is the harsh taskmaster. So when the great conviction comes for some people that you know, do not be harsh in your reactions, nor rejoice with the wicked, but have compassion on your brothers and sisters. Have compassion for the lost who will turn to Me in great throngs. It has always been in the midst of great darkness that My light shines the brightest. So put away your fears, and put away all your anxieties within you. Know that I am still on the throne, and that even though it rains on the just and the unjust, that My love remains constant, and My ability to restore anything you lose, is greater than the enemy’s ability to destroy, or steal and rob. I AM the ALMIGHTY am I not ? Did I not create the heavens and the earth ? Did I not establish the stars and the orbit of the planets ? Is there anything too hard for Me ? 1 Chronicles 16:36 NKJV Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting! Lions roar to announce their prowess, and I am the LION of JUDAH, and I am about to ROAR loudly in & through My people, and in the church. I will roar and set the enemy to flight. He will turn and run in 7 directions - the demons will flee. I AM the LORD and there is no other like Me. Look a people arises like a lioness, and will devour the prey. Numbers 23:24 NKJV Look, a people rises like a lioness, And lifts itself up like a lion; It shall not lie down until it devours the prey, and drinks the blood of the slain." Isaiah 33:14-16 NKJV The sinners in Zion are afraid; Fearfulness has seized the hypocrites: "Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?" 15 He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly, He who despises the gain of oppressions, Who gestures with his hands, refusing bribes, Who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed, And shuts his eyes from seeing evil: 16 He will dwell on high; His place of defense will be the fortress of rocks; Bread will be given him, His water will be sure. My FIRE will be poured out, and there will be tremendous healing and deliverances as I arise with healing in My wings. Remember the words of Malachi. Remember whose you are ! Remember Who loves you ! Remember the power of the cross – the power of My blood. There is NOTHING I cannot do beloveds. Do not yield to fear and worry, anxiety and doubt. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Establish your faith by keeping in the WORD. I will lead you again by the pillar of fire, and the cloud by day. There is salvation and deliverance for all who call upon the name of the LORD ! WORSHIP ME in the beauty of holiness. WORSHIP ME and as you worship, I will rain down GLORY ! I will intervene in your circumstances. WORSHIP and show everyone including the enemy of your soul, that you are unafraid !! 238
    • You will be established in strength and power as you do this. You will see the desire of your hearts that is pure and holy. Those who have hungered and thirsted after righteousness will be satisfied. For I will break every chain. Speak the truth in LOVE, not in cringing fear. As you preach the gospel, I will follow it with signs and wonders. As you pour out My love to others, there will be astounding miracles if you will but BELIEVE ! I am FAITHFUL AND TRUE and there is no other like ME, so walk in CONFIDENCE in your God ! Know that I will do what is in My heart to do, as you walk in faith and fully trust in My love. Loving the unloveable takes MY LOVE poured into you, so I have called you aside to rest in Me, that I might pour it into you and remove all that stands in the way of perfect FREEDOM !” Rising of the SON Feb 11th 2009 11:55 pm www.upstreamca.org Priscilla Van Sutphin Psalms 113:3-8 3 From the rising of the sun to its going down he Lord's name is to be praised. 4 The Lord is high above all nations,His glory above the heavens. 5 Who is like the Lord our God, Who dwells on high, 6 Who humbles Himself to behold The things that are in the heavens and in the earth? 7 He raises the poor out of the dust, And lifts the needy out of the ash heap, 8 That He may seat him with princes — With the princes of His people. “From the rising of the sun, to it’s setting in the west, I AM the Lord Who loves you and cares for you. I am the One Who declares a thing and it becomes! I am the One Who creates both good and calamity. I AM the ONE Who is in control, though it seems the enemy has the upper hand. He has not the knowledge of the whole plan. I AM the All Knowing One. I AM the Omnicient One. Fret NOT at what you see with your eyes, for My eyes see the whole picture. Intensity of the battle of all time is increasing. Stress in lives is increasing, but GLORY is also increasing. My GLORY will be SEEN on you. My glory will radiate through your body and rivet it, cleansing and purging every stronghold a nd bastion of the enemy. I will flood you with the LIGHT of My GLORY and you will KNOW that I have loved you. My IMMENSE LOVE is being poured out in this late hour to prepare you for what lies ahead. Just as My Son was transfigured before the cross, will I transform you before you must endure the times ahead. I am not slack, but timing is everything. You must understand I’m not trying to punish you. I am not trying to overburden you. You have 239
    • not yet endured what the early church endured. You have not yet seen all that they saw, but YOU WILL. Only to this house, I will give GREATER GLORY ! Haggai 2:9-10 Geneva Bible 8 And I will move all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come, and I will fill this House with glory, saith the Lord of hosts. The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine, saith the Lord of Hosts. 10 The glory of this last House shall be greater than the first, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of Hosts. The GLORY comes at a cost. The GLORY is not to be played with. It is more than power. It is My presence, and I AM HOLY. And I desire that My people who are called by My name also be Holy. For without holiness, no one will see God I’ve said in My Word. Many of you are manifesting in your body the emotional wounds of childhood. You have pushed down the emotions instead of allowing them to be healed. You have received many of you, wrong teaching and ungodly counsel to “just forget it” as if I , Your loving father would not do all I can to comfort and heal you. Just as surgical wounds do not heal overnight, and sometimes get infected, so do emotional wounds. But if you are not honest, if you lie and pretend to others that you’re ok, because the church won’t hear you, how will that help anything ? Fear of disclosure has shut many mouths that need to open and get out the pain and emotional bitterness, and get freed. Just as a surgeon doesn’t see cancer and just only take part of it out, and forget about the rest, I will not let you go till all the pus and infection, all the hurt and pain is out of you. But you need to be honest with My Holy Spirit and with those you CAN trust in the body who care and will pray. Authority for many who have paid the price, is about to INCREASE dramatica lly. Healings will be more instant, miracles will abound. But this is NOT the only way I heal. Each person is like a tapestry that is woven with many, many colors. Each of their life experiences is like a new color in that tapestry. It colors who they are as a person. I alone know everything about everyone in the earth. So Who do you think you should ask if you want to be part of praying for another and helping them to get what they need ? Each person is an individual. I know what makes them “tick”, as you say ! I know every hair on your head ! I want all the PRETENSE removed from My church. Many of you have been pretending so long you don’t even know you do it. You pretend in order to appear better than you are. You pretend to avoid dealing with certain issues you want to avoid. You pretend to keep from getting hurt again. There are all kinds of reasons. But you forget that you have NO RIGHTS. 240
    • 1 Corinthians 7:23 You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for by Christ]; then do not yield yourselves up to become [in your own estimation] slaves to men [but consider yourselves slaves to Christ]. AMP I am laying an axe to the roots of circulous problems in your lives. Many have gone round and round, unable to overcome certain conditions or habits, but I am about to set you free. Your lives will never be the same again. I am blowing on My garden, and the winds will blow away all the chaff in your life. For this,REJOICE ! REJOICE for Your God is at hand ! I am not afar off, nor am I deaf to your pleadings. But do you believe ME with ALL of your heart ? Therein is the problem. So many hearts have had to endure so much they are full of UNBELIEF, DOUBT, and SKEPTICISM. You don’t believe I’ll heal you, so you run everywhere but to ME. You don’t believe but as a concept. It is not deep in your heart to trust ME, and some of you don’t yet know how to trust me fully. But you will learn this when all your own ability to fix things is stripped from you. When you can’t do anything in your OWN STRENGTH, then you will learn that I WILL take care of you. So many are also still full of idolatry without realizing it. You think you need this or that to survive, but you don’t. You think you would die if this or that happened or was lost. But you won’t. There is nothing taken away by the enemy that I can’t replace, and even replace with something better ! But your life is not to depend on what you can hold in your hands. It is to depend on ME. I am a JEALOUS GOD. I AM the All Consuming FIRE, and I will have no other gods before Me. When I take away America’s idols, they will learn to once again depend on ME. But America is not the only nation I am judging. I am the Judge of ALL NATIONS. I will SHAKE every nation till it bends to ME. I am the Lion of JUDAH, not some god made of stone, wood or clay. I am REAL, and I want you to be REAL with Me and with others. I want Your testimony to ring out, of all I HAVE DONE FOR YOU. I want GLORY to be poured out in your lives, that you can truly be LIGHT to the world. I set Israel as a light to the world, and that commission has never changed though many of My people don’t KNOW ME, nor bow to ME. But every knee will bow in the end. EVERY KNEE will bow. And I have given you AUTHORITY over all the power of the evil one through My Son’s blood shed for you. IT IS TIME beloveds to depend on ME alone – to STAND on ME ALONE ! I will shake loose your unsaved family members from all their unbelief ! I WILL shake loose every lie and deception as you pray and COMMUNE with ME. COME ASIDE, and come higher. Come away with ME. WE have a lot to talk about. I have much more to show you, or have you learned it all already? There is a way that seems right to a man, but it ends in death. Proverbs 16:25 NKJV There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. 241
    • It is ONLY in being one with ME that you will find LIFE. Apart from ME, you can do NOTHING. You think you know this, but many of you walk in presumption at least half of the time. Some are easily led. Others insist on doing things their own way, and many think they are doing My will, while never seeking it in the first place, but just going about doing what THEY think is best. Impatience is strong in My bride. Stubborness abounds, and I said that stubbornness is like idolatry. Do you suppose that with all the idolatry in the church, there is a connection between the idolatry and resistance to waiting on ME ? Come and let us reason together beloveds. For though your sins are as scarlet, I will make them pure as snow. I know what you need better than anyone in this world. I have all you need to get there. I AM the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. I will give you all you need to bear through or get through what is ahead. I AM LIFE. I AM LOVE. And I love you with an everlasting love that never diminishes and never fails. I am FOR you and not against you.” Through Priscilla van Sutphin King Forever April 19th, 2009 www.upstreamca.org http://Upstream.injesus.com tearsofthefather@att.net Psalms 10:16-18 NKJV The Lord is King forever and ever; The nations have perished out of His land. 17 Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare their heart; You will cause Your ear to hear, 18 To do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed,that the man of the earth may oppress no more. Psalms 29:10-11 NKJV The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood, and the Lord sits as King forever. 11 The Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace. “ The Lord He is KING forever and ever ! Nothing and no one can take His place. There are many in this hour trying to assume the role of King of the world, King of the Universe, Lord of all. But the KING of KINGS will rule and reign, and the kingdoms of this earth will become the Kingdoms of our Lord and Christ alone. Was it ever seen that a good mother would leave her newborn child ? I AM a GOOD FATHER WHO GIVES GOOD GIFTS TO HIS CHILDREN. Nothing is too hard for me. Kings and nations will bow to ME in this hour. For I will display My power as never before. I will cause My ear to hear, and the cries of My people have come unto me for JUSTICE. I will give the KINGDOM to My saints, and you will rule and reign with ME over the darkness. Fear cannot rule in your lives to do this. 242
    • I will come, and I will pour Myself out like rain, like the strong spring rains, I will pour out My glory on My people, and they will RADIATE with MY love and power to do great exploits in My name. Speaking of antichrist… Daniel 11:30-33 NKJV "So he shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant. 31 And forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation. 32 Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. Determine to put ALL your trust in ME beloveds. Don’t forget the days of old, when lions were silenced and fire did not burn the children of Israel, when they crossed through the Sea without getting wet, or drowning. Have I not said, I will be with you when you pass through the waters, and that when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned ? Isaiah 43:2-4 NKJV When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. 3 For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place. 4 Since you were precious in My sight, You have been honored, And I have loved you; Therefore I will give men for you, And people for your life. FEAR NOT ! DO NOT BE AFRAID of them. I will tell you what to do, WAIT ON ME. WAIT ON ME I SAY ! For you WILL mount up with wings as eagles and soar on the wings of the wind. I will once again provide for you the cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night. I will show you the way to go. I will INCREASE REVELATION ! I will send mighty angels to help you and surround you. The armies I send are more than the armies of our enemy. FEAR NOT ! I WILL HELP YOU. I WILL FIGHT BESIDE YOU. Isaiah 4:3-6 NKJV I will send strong delusion into the camp of the enemy and to those who would betray you. I will confuse the camp of the enemy as I did in Gideon’s time, and they will turn on each other, and I will make miraculous ways of escape until it is your time to lay down your life. They will not be able to kill the glorious ones. They will not be able to stop them. They have no idea of the power of MY SON’s BLOOD as you do. They think their god has more power, thus they will not be able to defend themselves against MY MIGHTY ARMY. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 NKJV I have been healing and delivering you and training you that you would take control over your tongues, and control over your emotions, that you could walk uprightly, and 243
    • speak only as I want you to speak, to say what I WANT YOU TO SAY. Take every thought captive beloveds. DO NOT SAY I can’t. Defeatism lies at the door waiting to rob and steal from you. You may not be able, BUT I AM ABLE. So say, instead MY GOD CAN DO ANYTHING ! Believe and you will receive all that you need in the days to come. I will keep you as I kept Israel in the desert, as I kept the children of Israel in captivity in Persia. STAY THE COURSE. Do not deter from what I’ve told you. Do not move ahead without MY orders. Wait for My Spirit. Wait for your orders. There is a perfect timing. Wait on ME. For I will not be too late. Lean into My shoulder beloveds, and receive My love, that heals every ailment, every wound and pain in your body and heart. I AM AT HAND. Worship ME in the beauty of Holiness and REJOICE daughter of Zion. Dance and REJOICE in ME. I am begetting a mighty ARMY that will trample the enemy underfoot. I MYSELF will sustain you. LOOK TO ME for all you need. Do not beg, like someone who is not a son or daughter. Think of how your children ask you for things, knowing you love to give to them ! I am ALWAYS loving you. I am never tired of you. You who have paid a great price will reap the rewards of My promises, for you have been willing to lay down your lives so that you could pick up Mine. Total surrender is the way of the cross. And the cross is the power of salvation to all who are perishing. PRAY for the Harvesting of the WORLD, for I am desiring that you would reap a great harvest of SOULS, not just look to be taken from troubles. Consider others before yourselves I’ve told you. If you lose your life, you will save it ! I AM KING OF THE WHOLE EARTH. I am LORD over all that is in heaven and earth and under the earth. Demonstrate MY KINDNESS. Demonstrate MY POWER. REACH OUT to the Lost and deluded, and do it with MY LOVE received in the inner place of quietness and peace…in the secret place. RELEASE a new sound unto the Lord in the place of worship. Sing a NEW SONG ! Come into my courts with PRAISE and THANKSGIVING for I am longing to pour out My Spirit in you and in all whom you touch. Fight the spirits of heaviness, fear and witchcraft with WORSHIP ! Stamp your feet, and pound your fists, at the camp of the enemy. DANCE on injustice oh daughters of Zion. Let your JOY crush the enemy, your joy of INTIMACY WITH ME ! Commune with ME on your bed at night. Talk to ME about all that concerns you, and I will show you how to pray. I am forever in love with you My sons and daughters. YOU are the apple of My eye. Do not allow discouragement and despair to linger in your presence. REBUKE the spirits of heaviness and fear, doubt and UNBELIEF that are trying to subdue you, speaking My Word, and WORSHIPPING in the Spirit of TRUTH !” thru Priscilla Van Sutphin Fanciful Feast June 6, 2009 244

    • In other words, He will destroy anything that lifts itself up above HIM. Praise the Lord ! Building the N.W.O. is like rebuilding Babel ! What did He do at Babel? We must believe in GOD’s power more than the enemy’s ! “ Am I a just God ? Am I not righteous and understanding ? Am I not the Lord of Lords, and the Mighty One of Israel ? Am I not your Shield and Buckler? Are we mere aberrations of your imagination or are we REAL ? [Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit]. Surely My arm is NOT TOO SHORT to strengthen! Surely I have a better plan than the plan of the enemy! Surely My people who are called by My name should have more trust in ME, than in anything in this earth! I AM ABLE to upset their apple cart ! I AM ABLE to do all that is necessary and to stand beside you in this battle. KNOW that I will fight along side My BRIDE in this battle ! I will be WITH YOU. I AM EMMANUEL! I will not forsake you in any way. I have a feast on the lees awaiting you. I want you to spend time with ME, in intimacy with Me, in order to PREPARE for what is coming. Do not take this lightly ! Multiply your time with ME, and I will multiply My time with you ! Speak to ME more than all the worldly activities and giving in to fear, and you will HEAR from Me more. I want to talk to you. I want to let you know what to do and where to be, and where to go. Do NOT let your heart be troubled. Do not grow weary in doing good. But also, DO NOT STRIVE ! If you come to ME, I will show you a lighter yoke, than what many of you are bearing at this time. Many of you are so caught up in the cares of this world, and can you remember how I said to Nicodemus, If I tell you of earthly things and you do not believe, how can I tell you of heavenly things ? Do you understand that I want to give you MORE than just what you need for this world ? I want to show you HEAVENLY THINGS ! I want to grant you to understand mysteries and the secret things I hold for those who are willing to listen to ME. But to listen you must QUIET yourselves ! I told you in quietness and REST I would restore you, and then it says, but you would not !!! I am finding it so today ! Many will not rest from the labors of this world. Too many Martha’s and not enough Mary’s ! Come to ME I said, and I WILL GIVE YOU REST. What good will it do you to worry ? What will that help ? Foxes have holes, and birds have nests, yet the Son of Man had no place to lay His head I said. Yet you worry about so many NON ETERNAL things ! Worry not! Fret not ! I have you in the palm of My hand ! I will not leave you nor forsake you. The whole world is suffering My western Bride, not just you ! You have it better than most Christians all over the world, and yet in this final hour you are worried about THINGS more than your own soul or that of the lost ! WAKE UP OH SLEEPER and rise from the dead and I will SHINE upon you ! Wake up from your condition of skepticism at what I’m showing My true prophets. For SUDDENLY the heaviness of this 247

I am not leaving you without what you need to get through these times till I descend from the heavens. I have a good plan for My church. Prepare yourselves by coming away with ME, and spending time resting with ME…quiet with ME, so that you can hear the still small voice ! I guarantee that when I do what I’m going to do in you, that many in your families who have doubted and scoffed will come into the Kingdom in a moment of time ! Do not fret about them, LOVE THEM into repentance. Speak the WORD over your family and friends, your neighbors and workmates ! DECLARE a thing and it will be established because I am increasing authority and wisdom, understanding and love , joy and peace, as you REST in ME…as you worship ME. I am the ANSWER for all your concerns. I will not fail you as others have ! I am not a man that I should lie, nor a son of man that I should change My mind ! STOP listening to the voice of the Accuser ! Stop giving in to the thoughts he puts in your minds to try and make you feel disqualified ! REJOICE and again I say REJOICE when men persecute you and say all manner of evil against you, for so they did to the prophets of old. KNOW that I LOVE YOU, and that nothing can take that love away. When I do My marvelous work, the church will have a NEW HEART, for Me and for one another. The tsunami of MY LOVE is at hand. Continue to hide the word away in your hearts, and to worship in the spirit of HOLINESS! I inhabit the praises of My people because I LOVE YOU !” See Hosea 2 248
