HEARDThere are wild ones. I promise to tame.  Wild children.


VISION:  I saw a toddler at the bottom of a mall slide.  He went down facing backwards and at the bottom of the slide, he turned his head around front ways, but his body was still facing backwards.  He was looking kind of befuddled, as though he saw that he landed backwards and wanted to understand where he was, but was still facing backwards. 


VISION:  I saw a group of students marching towards me.  There was a boy that beckoned with his hands to get something from me in passing, (gimme, gimme) but without saying thank you or connecting in relationship.  I was reminded of those who seek God’s gifts and not His face.  He had a heal gripping Jacob spirit in him. 


Matthew 7:21-23 Not every one that says unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out demons? and in your name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.


I sensed this had to do with the need to be converted, because the word convert means to turn around.  Some want to see and receive the Word of the Lord, without repenting and turning their lives around.


Acts 3:19 Repent therefore, and be converted, {1994} that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;


CONVERT:  To revert, turn about, turn again


Strong's Greek Dictionary
1994. επιστρεφω epistrepho
from 1909 and 4762; to revert (literally, figuratively or morally):come (go) again, convert, (re-)turn (about, again).




I had another very unusual experience with the Lord this morning. I was given a vision in which I was climbing backwards up a very tall tree. This seemed very strange and quite dangerous. As I watched the ground getting farther away, I asked what this could mean, and I was told that we are doing many things in a backward way. I asked if that was good or bad and the Lord said, “Yes! It is both. It is good when you are going back away from the ways of the world and the ways of the flesh, but it is bad when you are moving away from the things I ask you to do.”


It suddenly came to me that I wasn’t really climbing at all. How can you climb up a tree backward? It is just not possible. Then I realized that I was being pulled up the tree. This also was both good and bad. It was good that I was being pulled upward, and it was bad that the Lord had to pull me instead of me turning around and climbing in the direction He is leading.


Then suddenly I was carried by the Spirit into another vision. In this vision, I was flying with the Lord in something like a space ship. Again, I was looking backwards through a great window. I had a marvelous view of where we had been, but could not see anything about where we were going. I believe I may have been enjoying the view of the Universe more than focusing on the lesson from the Lord, because He had to tell me again to turn around and focus on where He was leading.


Are there some backward things in your life? Are there times or situations when you seem to be moving away from the Lord? Now is the time to reorient yourself and begin to move in the direction He is leading. I remembered what Paul wrote in Philippians 3:13-14, “Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”


This is the time and this is the season to let go of the things in the past which draw your attention away from the destiny the Lord has established for you. This is a time to turn around and get back in line with His ways and His direction for your life. Things will be so much easier when you are moving forward than when He has to drag you backward toward you goal. Amen?


May we never end up like the people Paul described in Philippians 3:18-21, “For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.”


May we have a clear perspective on our citizenship in the Kingdom and a sharp focus on the destiny given to us by the Lord! May we see any areas where we need to turn around and then be obedient to follow and obey Him! May we be faithful in all our walk and all our ways! Amen and Amen!!!

HEARDI heard a young person’s name who had been voted to become a leader of a new generation. 


VISIONThen I saw this same person who had a lot of raw talent, but was definitely not honed.  I sensed he was a wild horse not yet trained.  They actually called him an upcoming star and he had been held back for more mentoring.


HEARDCharacter.  He’s brave, yes but not trained.  A wild horse in process.  There you have it.


Psalms 89:33-35 Nevertheless my loving-kindness will I not utterly take from him, nor allow my faithfulness to fail. 34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. 35 Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.






“There are a lot of people that have a gift that will take them somewhere.  But not enough character to keep them there once they get there.  I’m tired of seeing shooting stars who fall faster than they rose, and end up giving Christianity a bad name.  Don’t despise the day of small beginnings.  And don’t be in too big of a hurry to try to get on the platform somewhere.” 


PRAYER:  Lord we lift up a new generation of raw talented believers who have great potential and thank You for Your promise that You will train them in Godly character and wisdom.  We honor the gifts You have placed within them, but we also earnestly request that You would protect them from being promoted by men before their time.  We ask that You will route out all the defects in their character that are vulnerable to demonic plunder, because it is not only their lives that they represent.  It is all those who will follow their lead someday that we also want kept from the wicked one.  Raise up Your army of radical believers Lord, and let the children be radically trained for radical days, in Jesus name.


John 17:15-18 I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through your truth: your word is truth. 18 As you have sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
