Hi Loved Ones,

Years ago I was earnestly waiting upon the Lord for some specific direction and was hearing nothing. He finally said, "A set of directions depends on the wind going to the right or to the left." (Isaiah 30:21) I suddenly realized the reason I wasn’t receiving any directions was because He wasn’t changing direction! He was not moving, therefore His wind was still.

A couple weeks ago I was reading some notes from a friend who had gone to a conference in June 99. A prophetical Word came forth to get ready for God to blow upon us. When I read the notes I prayed, "Oh Lord come breath upon me! Come Lord!" The next morning at prayer meeting an intercessor was sitting on the ground praying over my feet and suddenly she turned around, looked up and started blowing puffs of wind into my face. I knew EXACTLY why she was doing this! The Lord was confirming, "Yes I will blow upon you!" That following Sunday one of our elders got up and said that he felt the Lord was bringing the winds of change. Three confirmations in one week - get ready for His wind, His breath to bring us to new places!

Since then I have been thinking about the wind and want to share some of the thoughts. Perhaps the Lord will quicken some of them to your heart. Greek & Hebrew (numbers) are recorded in the verses, and the accompanying Word Study definitions are included at the end, for those who are interested.


We cannot control the wind and it blows where it will. Neither can we see it. (John 3:8) But we can feel it. The wind invades our senses. Get ready, He wants to invade our senses.


Wind has a language all its own. It whispers gentle stirrings and yet also speaks loudly in mighty blasts. Let His wind stir your heart to be in tune with His Presence, for He comes when we least expect it. And yet gather together with others in one accord, and He will come like the roar of a freight train… loaded with His glory signs.

"Day of Pentecost had now arrived. As the believers met together that day, suddenly there was a sound like the roaring of a mighty windstorm (4157) in the skies above them and it filled the house where they were meeting. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on their heads. And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in languages they didn't know, for the Holy Spirit gave them this ability." (Acts 2:1-4 TLB)


If you are a dry bone, or know of one in whom you’ve lost hope… start prayin’…. He’s getting ready to blow on the bones and bring them back to life. And if you’ve lost hope, remember those poor bones didn’t do a thing, but lay in a big pile of rubble — and God breathed His Spirit upon them and they became His great army.

"Again He said to me, "Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, 'O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: "Surely I will cause breath (7307) to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath (7307) in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the LORD." (Ezek 37:4-6 NKJ)

"Then he told me to call to the wind and say: "The Lord God says: Come from the four winds, O Spirit, and breathe (5301) upon these slain bodies, that they may live again." So I spoke to the winds as he commanded me, and the bodies began breathing; they lived and stood up-a very great army." (Ezek 37:9-10 TLB)

"Jesus breathed on His disciples to receive the Holy Spirit. "Then he breathed (1720) on them and told them, "Receive the Holy Spirit." (John 20:21-22 TLB)

"And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed (5397) into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being." (Gen 2:7 NKJ)


Wind carries things from one location to another. It scatters seeds and pollinates. It drives the chaff away. It brings changes in the climate or weather patterns. Get ready for a change.

"Come, north wind, awaken; come, south wind, blow (6315) upon my garden and waft its lovely perfume to my beloved. Let him come into his garden and eat its choicest fruits." (SS 4:15 TLB)


Wind under-girds the birds to fly. It brings them to new heights and enables them to rest and soar with its currents. Get ready to move up and onward.

In 1984 I had a most awesome experience when in a vision I felt the Lord literally fill my lungs with His breath. In the vision I took a deep breath and could feel His mighty wind rushing past my nostrils and down my throat. He opened my ears and I heard its very loud sound as it rushed into my lungs. As my lungs filled, it took several minutes to fill them to capacity. I could feel the Lord's Presence as this occurred and thought what a mighty pair of lungs He has! When I finished inhaling, I held it a brief moment. He opened my eyes and I gazed at multitudes of little blue and pink baby carriages. Each baby carriage carried a baby wrapped very snugly in a blue or pink blanket with a matching blue or pink milk bottle. My heart was filled with such tender feelings and a great nurturing for these babies. I started to exhale upon them, gently at first. Like feathers in the wind, these babies arose and were carried upon the breath of God. Still exhaling, I watched them float ever so gently upon the breath of God. The breath grew stronger and they flurried around like snow flurries in the wind. This vision seemingly lasted a very long time as His exhale continued to blow.

I believe this is His promise for our children, the chosen generation whose feet will evangelize the world. I also know it is a promise of the harvest yet to come - multitudes of newborn children He will supernaturally carry upon His wind. However, He said,

"I tell you as seriously as I know how that anyone who refuses to come to God as a little child (3813) will never be allowed into his Kingdom." (Mark 10:15 TLB) I may hang over the edges, but when His wind hits, I plan on climbing into one of those carriages, snuggling up to His precious cargo, and going for the ride of my life!

Hi Loved ones,

The following is a Word about the winds of change. I have included my personal comments following.

A Word given to Rich Hughlett

Rich’s email:

Received March, 2000

At the beginning of this prophecy I saw the winds of a great storm blowing debris everywhere, and towards the end of the message I saw in my mind a great eagle hovering above her nest violently flapping her wings.

"Winds of change, Winds of change," Saith the Lord. "For I am releasing mighty winds of change from the four corners of the earth, for the demolition of the old for the rebuilding of the new. Winds of change for the uncovering of the hidden, winds of change for the revealing of the truth. There shall be winds for re-evaluation, winds for relocation, winds for restoration, winds for refining, winds for realigning, winds for

refreshing, winds for blessing, winds for repentance, winds for salvation, winds for prosperity, winds for healing, winds for deliverance, winds for consecration, and winds for sanctification."

"To those who resist, the winds will bring destruction, but for those who yield to My Spirit they will be winds that will propel them on the course that I have prepared for them. So seek My face to set your compass, and spread your wings and allow the currents of My Spirit to bring the changes that must be made to bring you higher and closer to Me," Saith the Lord.


When I came to the word sanctification, the Holy Ghost spoke these words to me which I feel are not part of the prophecy, but are for counsel and instruction especially to those in leadership: "A greater circle of influence requires a smaller circle of sanctification."

I am not a teacher but I will try to explain what the Holy Spirit taught me about sanctification. The word sanctification means to be set apart to God. Most Christians don't understand that there are different levels of sanctification just as there are different levels of the anointing.

One day the Holy Spirit spoke to me through a prophecy and told me that He was calling me to a deeper level of sanctification for a closer walk with Him. He soon began to prune my relationships and my circle of fellowship got smaller. Joyce Meyer expounded a little one day on this. She said that the hardest thing for her to deal with is loneliness. She influences a lot of people but God requires a deep level of separation for her to carry the level of anointing that her job requires. I see a lot of people in the ministry that don't allow the Holy Spirit to have full control of their lives. It is very crucifying to the flesh to be set apart but there is a price to pay for us to follow Him and come up higher.



When I read this Word, several things came to mind. First, in Bobby Conner’s Shepherd’s Rod 2000, it says in the Table of Contents, "God is Getting Our Attention to Change."

[Bobby’s site:]

Secondly, the Lord gave Mahesh’s wife, Bonnie Chavda a vision in 1995 about the refreshing but also violent wind coming upon the land. On this vision the Lord told her, "Everything that can be shaken will be shaken. Everything in which you have found safety or comfort but not from Me will be exposed and uprooted. There will be those who will call this wind "demonic" because of what it will make manifest. Demons will be stirred up, the flesh will be made obvious, things formerly hidden will be exposed and seen as they are in relation to My Spirit: BUT THIS WIND IS FROM ME!"

[Mahesh’s site:]


When Rich emailed me his comments about hearing the phrase, "A greater circle of influence requires a smaller circle of sanctification," I noted that the Lord often speaks to His prophets in riddled speech. (Num 12;6-8) Rich connected it with what the Lord was doing in his life of sanctifying his fellowship.

I was reminded of the passage, "You can enter God's Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose the easy way. But the gateway to life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it." (Matt 7:13-14 NLT) There are many sources of unholy fellowship including fellowship with the world.


I have to say that since the beginning of this year, I have never had so much "change" occur in my home and personal habits. The Lord in His loving but serious way, finally managed to get my attention by throwing me into that violent wind. It was quite perplexing at first, because I was being thrown back and forth between soaking in His Presence, to being beat up by principalities. I had been involved in heavy warfare before, but this was different. It was as though the weapons that worked before were not effective. The Lord in His infinite patience was training me and putting me into obedience school.


I recently came across several stories about dog obedience school. They were from different sources and I did not feel it was an accident that the Lord brought these to me. I really believe they reveal the Word of the Lord.

One was a story about a fellow teaching his hunting dog to hunt. First the dog was to learn to heel and stay by the master’s side. On command his dog ran forward for the find, but in the process got lost. He was running to the right, then to the left, sniffing and frantically searching all over the place - occasionally looking back for the next command. At each command, the dog was getting more and more confused. Finally his master told him to come back and heel. Sometimes when we are sent on an assignment, we get lost in the process of understanding His Words and need to return to His side until we can figure out what He wants.

The other dog training stories all agreed that the master needed to be consistent, firm, patient, and loving. It was quite humorous to hear of these dogs being told over and over again the same command, and the dogs doing everything but the command!

After unrelenting and repeated commands, finally a dog would do what was commanded. At that moment, the master breaks out in overwhelming praise and positive feedback, to confirm the dog’s actions. This is the moment of communication. The master speaks, the dog responds correctly, the master says YES, and the dog finally understands! CONNECTION.

I couldn’t help but think of my being thrown into that violent wind and not knowing the difference between heads and tails. (Heads, I made the right choices and enjoyed the Lord’s Presence. Tails, I made the wrong choice and got slimed by demonic garbage in my sleep.) Back then, I kept having the suspicion that my choices on TV were opening a demonic door. It seemed strange to me that if I watched something like a craft show or an animal show I would not get slimed. But if my conscience was twinged for even a moment in channel surfing, I would get dumped on at night with demonic dreams, etc. Somehow through God’s grace, just like the poor dumb dog, I finally got the message. We cut off cable TV and since we could not get the local channel, we just turned it off.

The Lord brought me a confirmation as I listened to an old tape called, "Bob Jones in Atlanta." I do not know the year, but I think it was in the 90’s. I was amazed. He saw demons that were going to be released by watching movies. Some people would become demonized and others would get slimed through what they were watching. He said that this would be an immediate thing that would happen as soon as one looked. He said there would be a quick repercussion for what ever we do. This included lingering too long in turning the channel. Bob said satan is being cast down to earth at this time, and we can’t get away with things we did in the past. He said, "Glean your own TV. Get it out of the house. Is there anything more important than your children and your family? This is the year that if you want a devil to live in your house, that will happen. Come into a separate and more restrained life style. Get rid of excess baggage. Being a friend of the world, makes you an enemy with God. God is going to deal with the church about entertainment." [end of Bob Jones notes]

[Bob Jones site:]

I was quite amazed, it was like he read my mail! The Lord brought back to memory one of my main prayers last year. When all of the terrible prophesies of judgment were coming out on the Internet, I prayed, "Lord it doesn’t do a bit of good to spank someone if it is for something they did a long time ago. We have little memory of truth or consequences. How are we going to make the connection?" I started asking that He would give us immediate feedback to our decisions, so that we could understand what He was saying.

I was overwhelmed by the confirmation of listening to this tape after we cut off our TV. I kept thinking, "Where was this Word when I needed it?" Something gnawed in the back of my mind that I HAD heard this tape before. Then the Holy Spirit brought to remembrance that I had heard it, and when I did, I had filtered it with compromise. I thought the Word was just about horror movies and since I had never seen a horror movie and the Lord had rebuked me about other carnal movies years before, and I was trying to obey, I had a mind set that it did not apply to me. Now after the fact, I realized that compromising holiness had blinded my eyes and deafened my ears towards hearing the warning of the Word of the Lord. He told me, but I did not listen. I had to learn the hard way.

Did I learn? After all was said and done, I had to go around the barn another round. I rented a nice old fashioned musical video tape. However at the counter, I found out it was rent one, get one free. As I looked over the selection I kept thinking, "This is burn time, if you disobey." So I asked both counter people to recommend a true life drama that was inspirational without questionable material in it. I brought it home with the intention of turning it off if something came up. In the 2 hours, there were 2 short sentences spoken in humor that stung my conscience. I dismissed the two phrases, because the movie was very good. I felt like I was home free. Then the final scene, lasting about 30 seconds, blasted me with filth. That night during sleep, I got slimed with demonic filth - big time.

When I woke up, His Word finally came through, "When you are involved in warfare, you have no business touching the unclean thing." I thought of the following scripture:

"Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they have become doomed to destruction. Neither will I be with you anymore, unless you destroy the accursed from among you. Get up, sanctify the people, and say, 'Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow, because thus says the LORD God of Israel: "There is an accursed thing in your midst, O Israel; you cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the accursed thing from among you."

(Josh 7:12-14 NKJV)

One might ask why would the Lord suddenly become so strict? I was asking the same question for a lot of weeks. It is because of His love. In one of the dog training stories, a dog was being trained as a guide for the blind. During a heeling session, she was a couple of inches ahead of the master, instead of at his side and the trainer seriously rebuked the dog. It appeared too constraining to require such strict obedience, but then the explanation came. It only takes one car to hit the dog. It only takes one moment for the dog to run out of control and lose her life. The training is not for appearances, it’s for the dog’s safety.

So Beloved of the Lord, as we view our daily lives, I share these things that we might consider that the Lord is bringing us into a lengthy season of change where He will be unrelenting until we finally "get it." Time is speeding up, and we are now receiving His quick feedback to personal choices. I am also noticing on a positive side that when I make a right choice, like pray for someone, that He downloads me with His Presence at the time I pray, as a YES confirmation. I may be like a dumb dog and not know heads from tails at times, but I sure like positive feedback!



PS - The Lord often speaks to me when I make typing bloopers. I typed the following sentence, and once again, He amazed me! "It only takes one moment for the dog to fun out of control and lose her life."
