(A prophetic look at Jesus’ Triumphant Entry, from the donkey’s viewpoint)


Hi Loved Ones,

In case you can’t tell, the Lord has been talking to me about donkeys lately. It all began when I went through a tough season that lasted a couple of years. I felt that I was being thoroughly dumped on by the enemy. I continued to stand and rebuke, but at one time I felt quit defeated, shamed and polluted by the whole thing.

During this time a wonderful Word came through Bob Jones at a conference. He said the Lord wanted to remove the shame caused from the enemy. He shared a story about a donkey who lived in his owner’s field. One day an enemy broke through the owner’s fence and dug a deep pit in the field. The owner discovered the enemy’s destruction and ordered the intruder to leave but first he was to fill the hole. Somehow, during the night, the donkey managed to fall into the hole. The enemy was delighted and kept dumping dirt upon the donkey’s head, intending to bury it.

The next morning, the owner couldn’t find his donkey but when he called it, two donkey ears appeared above ground level at the hole. Then a head, then two feet poked up on top of the hole, then a paw, then another paw until he climbed right up the steep incline straight out of the hole. The owner said. "Donkey, what were you doing in that hole?" The donkey replied, "I fell in and the enemy intended to bury me, but with each shovel full, I just shook and stomped, shook and stomped. So now I’m outta’ here!" He was one dirty donkey, but he was safe, he was free and he was out of that pit. (Psa 30)

Then minutes prior to my teaching debut on a class about deliverance, a fellow came up to me and told me he’d had a dream. Tired of being "dumped" on with bad dreams, I was not too anxious to hear this dream, especially right before class. (I already had the jitters, for who in their right mind would say yes to a teaching debut on such a subject as deliverance?) Hesitantly I asked, "Is this a good dream or a bad one?" He didn’t know. My curiosity couldn’t stand it. "OK tell me the dream!" He saw a bunch of people standing around this donkey. Then he saw the donkey laying on its side and its womb opened and the donkey was giving birth to a baby colt. Remembering Bob’s donkey story and how much it meant to me, I knew this was significant.

Next, a lady on my email list sends me a Word. This was the day I sent out my last post concerning the invitation about the new Quickened Prayer elist and the announcement about the winds of intimidation. This is her note: "Good morning, I saw a donkey laying down on a roof top during my quiet time. Does this ring a bell? Could this be tied to the invitation that went out? Thanks for your time and may God bless you. Cheryl."

I laughed thinking about the donkey being out of that dirty and dark hole and having climbed as far away from that hole as possible! I felt he was enjoying the light and warmth of the sun (Son) and also waiting upon the Lord for something. I was wondering what that something was. The Lord heard my ponderings and I saw a vision of this donkey on top of a roof, laying upside down on its back. I thought, "Oh no! Transition, giving birth, upside down, unstable, no feet on the ground, undone!" Then I saw this big hand come down to the donkey’s tummy and tickle it! I laughed out loud, having no idea what that meant.


The final stage of the birthing process is called transition. It is when the labor pains come closer together, there is less rest between the cycles and the pain is most intense. (I remember in the Lamaze class of 1980 they told us, if the mother was going to lose her self control, this was when it was most likely to happen! After going through the process, I agree! :)

As "mothers", we are living through birth pangs and transition:

… Corporately, the church has been storing nations in her spiritual womb, and slowly carrying them to full term through intercession.

… Generationally, the baby boomers are birthing Generation X into their callings. (We’re blooming with babies that are Xtra specially marked by God.)

… Personally, we are carrying our promises to full term: waiting and groaning through the process, earnestly expecting and standing against the pressures, bearing down under the strain and being compelled into bringing forth that which He has spoken into our lives.

As is the parable of the donkey climbing out of the hole, and its colt coming through the birth canal, so are we all intimately interconnected through this experience. For there is a little bit of mother and a little bit of child in all of us. We may even switch roles, depending upon which application we take.

As babies, we are also living through birth pangs and transition:

Prior to the baby going through the birth canal (the dark hole), it turns around, upside down and comes through head first. This is a parable that the baby is not exactly in control either; it certainly is not going to land on its feet when it comes through upside down and head first. (Think about THAT when you are birthing your promises!)

"Mother and baby", you may have just gone through (or are going through) a dark hole where the enemy wanted to hold you back. You may have felt like your head was being covered with shovels of dirt and you were being buried in difficult circumstances. You may have gone through a tough transition and suffered strong pressures along with it. Both of you may have suddenly shot out of your holes, messy and stunned…wobbly, unstable and with zero confidence… It’s OK. You are OK. God is still in control. He still has a plan. He knows where everything is. He hasn’t lost anything. To every thing there is a season!


As I was thinking about the donkey giving birth to a child, the Lord quickened to me the scripture where Jesus rode into the city on the donkey’s colt. Notice, He called both mother and child when He had need of a ride into the city. The disciples brought both donkeys to Jesus.

Matt 21:1-9 NLT

Jesus sent two of them on ahead. "Go into the village over there," he said, "and you will see a donkey tied there, with its colt beside it. Untie them and bring them here. If anyone asks what you are doing, just say, `The Lord needs them,' and he will immediately send them." This was done to fulfill the prophecy, "Tell the people of Israel, `Look, your King is coming to you. He is humble, riding on a donkey -- even on a donkey's colt.' " The two disciples did as Jesus said. They brought the animals to him and threw their garments over the colt, and he sat on it. Most of the crowd spread their coats on the road ahead of Jesus, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. He was in the center of the procession, and the crowds all around him were shouting, "Praise God for the Son of David! Bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Praise God in highest heaven!"

Zech 9:9 NLT

Rejoice greatly, O people of Zion! Shout in triumph, O people of Jerusalem! Look, your king is coming to you. He is righteous and victorious, yet he is humble, riding on a donkey -- even on a donkey's colt.


What happens after the mother’s role of interceding for the corporate, generational and personal promises is completed? Is she discarded after her lengthy intercession to bring forth God’s plans? No! The mother role of carrying the baby to full term may be over, but after birth, her role has just begun. After any birth, mother’s milk is quickly generated and she steps into a new role of raising her young.

When the disciples found the colt, it was right beside the mother. That means it was probably still nursing. The disciples brought both to Jesus. The colt needed mother’s milk and the mother needed to give it. The disciples brought the mother with them as they traveled with Jesus through the crowds. The mother was not left out, she was right there in the midst of it all.

So if you feel too old and have disqualified yourself, thinking you are too old to do anything, remember you have great wealth stored inside. You have been collecting mother’s milk for a very long time, and have not realized it. You have wisdom, you have teaching, you have encouragement, you have praise, you have boldness, you have insight, you have understanding, you have discernment, you have knowledge, you have prayers, you have authority, you have fortitude, you have tenacity, you have cassette & video tapes, you have books, you have sermons, you have finances, you have homes to share for prayer, Bible studies, classes and home groups… you have great wealth collected in your life and under the Lord’s anointing, it will pour forth like rivers of sweet mother’s milk. The Lord will place within your heart a burning love and a passion to mentor, to nurture that which God has brought forth.


As children of corporate, generational and personal promises, what happens after birth?

When Jesus rode His triumphant entry into the city, it was on the young colt, not the mother donkey. These newly birthed corporate, generational and personal promises will have the honor of carrying Jesus Christ through the streets of the cities. And in the process, Jesus Christ will be honored and glorified and desired by all nations. (Hag 2:7)

The mantle of authority and power that will fall upon this child of promise is going to be awesome. Notice in the triumphant walk into the city, the disciples of Jesus and the masses placed their coats below Him. (Below His rest and His journey.) Coats and outer garments are a prophetic symbol of the mantle of authority. There are mantles of power from the disciples and masses that have gone before us, and they will be falling from heaven, even as Elijah’s mantle fell to earth as he departed to be with the Lord. (2 Kings 2:13) We are going to walk in unprecedented power and authority in these last days as all of heaven and earth climax into one great and awesome display of Jesus Christ. (John 14:12)

If you have disqualified yourself because you (or your promise) are too young, naive, and inexperienced, remember the colt was still nursing and Jesus specifically chose that colt. A young colt can kick its heals, run, jump and play and still have energy left to spare. You are going to be set on fire with His power and take His good news to the streets, to the schools, to the malls, to the hospitals, to the prisons, to the work world, and to the nations. Under the power and anointing of God, there will be nothing stopping you.

And so this year as you celebrate Palm Sunday (April 8), think about the mother and child donkey and what they went through behind the scenes to be so honored as to walk with Jesus among the masses. And remember that while we are waiting, (perhaps upside down and in transition) for His timing in this whole process, He wants to tickle our tummies and make us laugh. For even when it feels like the enemy has the upper hand, God laughs at such a ridiculous thought. (Psalms 2)

"It will be the same joy as that of a woman in labor when her child is born-her anguish gives place to rapturous joy and the pain is forgotten." (John 16:20-22 TLB)

Today I birthed a teaching baby and a deliverance baby. I taught a 3 hour workshop on deliverance. I had perfect peace and it was amazing I was able to do this.

Something VERY funny occurred immediately before I started. One of our intercessors came up and told me that he had 2 vivid dreams last night. People are always telling me their dreams and wanting interps. A lot of time I just throw them out due to impurity. I asked him if it was bad, because if it was bad I did not want to hear it right before the class! He said he was not sure.

HIS DREAM: He saw a donkey and it went over on its side with its feet sticking out. There was a group of people all gathered around this donkey. Then he saw a womb. Then he saw a baby donkey pop out of the womb!!!!!! I was totally amazed, since last week one of our musicians from prayer meeting prophesied over me about Jesus’ triumphant entry on a donkey. The donkey represents the lowly servant. The Lord is certainly funny.

HIS 2ND DREAM: He walked into a room that had operating computer equipment stacked from the floor to the ceiling, in one corner of the room, spreading out on both adjoining walls. There was a person sitting at a keyboard in front of this mass of computer equipment. He had the impression it was an operating center, extending outward to the world.

[I wondered if the Lord was saying that the baby would go on the Internet and teach people about deliverance.]


HEARD: Keep in mind, this is merely a beginning.

PIX: I saw someone with a measuring tape, measuring the height, depth and width of a tree.

HEARD: It’s the right size. She’s ready. Perfect. My good job. I can’t watch this. Just be natural. It’s who you are, not what you are. Comes out in unusual ways. She’s almost done.


Matt 21:2-5 NKJV
"Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me. 3 And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, 'The Lord has need of them,' and immediately he will send them." 4 All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:  5 "Tell the daughter of Zion, 'Behold, your King is coming to you,  Lowly, and sitting on a donkey ,  A colt, the foal of a donkey .'"
