I have heard the words "Birth Pangs" in my spirit for several days. So I looked into it a bit.
One definition is: Difficulty or turmoil associated with a development or TRANSITION.
Charging My Spiritual Battery
Eph. 3:16-19: I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that…Continue
1 Cor 14:8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle.
A warrior without a war is helpless in the war that rages within himself. Many of the warriors that have been seasoned in battles are hearing the sound of a trumpet in these days. What is happening? Many are feeling strength coming back into their spirit. The warriors are waking up again. They are not waking up of their own, but are being summoned by a trumpet sound that is making a…Continue
The most dangerous and the most destructive voice(s) in your life are those that make you doubt yourself and wither and kill the dream within you. As R. Carpenter has said, not everyone is meant to be in your life permanently; some are like scaffolding – they are meant to be there for a season, but when that time of building is completed, there is no longer any need for the scaffolding and it is removed. Thus people mayalso be for only a season.
As I talk to people and as I read…Continue
These are perilous times we are living in right now. Choices are being made that is seperating people everywhere. Some are choosing to walk in the power of God's Spirit, while others are falling by the wayside. There is a way to true spiritual victory in the life of a believer. Paul told the Ephesian Church to "Redeem the time, for the days are evil." In this we have a real perspective of where we are.
We live in time yet our God is eternal. In our scope of time we can only live…Continue

I had a dream several years ago, and in this dream I was walking with Jesus on a country road. There were other people with me but i couldnt see their faces. As we were walking we passed by these huge wheat fields the were sectioned off into block my adjoining roads. Some fields were empty and some only had a few people working in them. I remember thinking, " hey that would be a nice field to work in," but as the though came across my mind I realized that i would have to leave His side…Continue

So often we grow weary in the battle but the war rages on. As the intensity rises, we have been taught to retreat at times and regroup in order to spare ourselves from the pain of casualties. I want to submit to you today that gospel itself was birthed by the very casualties suffered by the early church. American Christianity is a lot like a fast food resturaunt. We want what we want and we want it now. Impatience is often the motivation of our intercession. We seek the Lord when it…Continue
Appropriation of Faith
John 1:16-17: And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. (NKJV)
How could power from heaven be pure in us any other way than through Jesus Christ? As Paul states in 2 Corinthians 4:7: “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” (KJV) Within our frail,…Continue

Alan, You know that I am reluctant to write as I want to make sure that what I say is grounded. Below is a summary of what I spoke of in the Philippines last week. Please feel free to correct or add to the following writing on faith.
Just as air is the breath of man on earth so is faith the breath of life for the Kingdom Man. Without faith it is impossible to please God. This is not an admonition but a core truth; almost a clue. Remember that when we die we will face…Continue
“Those who trust in the Lord are as secure as Mount Zion; they will not be defeated but will endure forever. Just as the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, both now and forevermore.” Psalm 125:1-2 (NLT)
Fear not, for you are surrounded, yes; you are encompassed about by the Lord of Heaven’s Armies and his hosts. Open your eyes and look around you, not in the physical realm but in the spiritual realm for greater are those that are with…Continue
I posted this in the prophetic council note as a reponse. I feel impressed to share it with everyone.
Ive been shook for the last two years and there are only two things left in me, 1. a helpless, weak, and cowardly man. 2. The Almighty creater of the universe who has found me in my weakness and has chosen to be mighty in me, in spite of me. Until we are comfortable with seeing ourselves in the mirror of Gods grace, things will continue to shake. We speak of this encounter that… Continue

Some years ago while my wife and I were fellowshiping at a local church here in Salisbury, I began to sense a pattern of ungodly leadership. I saw anointed men of God choking the life out of their congregation and calling it a move of the spirit.
I was then given a vision concerning this issue and it is as follows.
I saw a small band of worriors with ancient sheilds and swords, almost like out of a scene from Braveheart. A few hundred at the most. They were gathered together…Continue
Nurtured by Synergy
‘The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind-Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, So that might be one heart and mind with us. Then the world might believe that you, in fact sent me. The same glory you gave me, I gave them, So that they’ll be as unified and together as we are-I in them and you in me. Then they’ll be mature in this oneness, and give the godless world evidence that you’ve sent me and loved them in the same way you’ve…Continue
Spending some time with the Father this evening revealed many things to my spirit that I believe are applicable to the purpose and function of the Kingdom Prophetic Society. Here are some things that the Lord brought to my spirit
1. Many are feeling life coming back into the shells of existence that we have been. We have been going through the motions of life without having any real life.
2. Those being gathered have tasted of battle. Most have been through the valley of…Continue
James 5:17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
The Prophet Elijah was a man whose ministry was marked by miracles. The amazing thing about this verse is that he was named a man of like passions as we are. Contrary to some who believed that Elijah was an angel, this verse simply states he was a man. He was subject as we are to…Continue

We discovered Friday night that purpose of the shaking is has many purposes. As the glory begins to intensify it brings us more into the reality of His kingdom. Heb 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
The anointing, authority and benefits of kingdom power is going to be released in the people of God who walk in the outpouring of God's voice saying, "Prepare to meet thy…Continue
