One Mile To Nehemiah, One Mile To Mount Zion!

One Mile To Nehemiah, One Mile To Mount Zion

In a recent dream, I was on a highway and saw two green road signs with white writing, like the typical road signs you would see on a highway. The first sign read, “One mile to Nehemiah” and the second sign read, “One mile to Mt. Zion.” I woke up with such a sense of awe and wonder. Later that day, I shared this dream at a church service in San Francisco and right at that exact moment, a young man on the worship team received a photo text message of a green road sign with white writing that read, “God’s Love.……..Everywhere.” He jumped forward with such excitement that he grabbed the microphone from me and told the church how God was confirming this dream that I had. He continued showing people the photo as evidence. I believe that God is saying that His love everywhere is the outcome of our destination and we’re less than a mile away! Another local leader in the body of Christ had two dreams later that same week where he was shown that we are one mile away from God’s big breakthrough. He saw that this last mile would be very difficult but it would be worth it because it will be history making on a global scale.

No More Spiritual Rape!

We must be careful how we build upon another man’s foundation (1 Corinthians 3:10-12). For no one can lay any other foundation except the one that was laid, which is Jesus Christ.

In another dream that I recently had, a big name ministry sent one of their representatives to San Francisco with a team. This man began to force himself on me sexually but I was able to push him off. He and his team continued to release their methodology until one person asked, “Does anyone see anything?” I said, “Yes, I see the Lord coming in the clouds with glory!” Just then, they all tried to shut me up and that was the end of the dream. I had a strong feeling in the dream that though they had good intentions, they were effectively serving the enemies purpose to keep us distracted from the true work of the Lord. I had this terrible feeling that we were very unprepared for our day of visitation.

When a man forces himself on someone sexually, it is considered immorality and rape. A relationship between a man and a woman that eventually culminates to marriage takes time and process for that relationship to come to its full potential. The man must get to know the woman and accurately honor her for there to be any hope of lasting love and that also goes for the woman with the man. Then, if there is mutual consent and compatibility, they will go to the next step in their relational process and begin dating or courting with intentions of marriage. All of this is wonderful and has due process. It’s the dance of true love. Finally, the wedding day arrives and then, and only then, is the marriage consummated and the ‘seed’ released that brings new life, blessing and fruitfulness. As it stands now, there have been many well-intentioned people in the church attempting to sell San Francisco’s birthright to the highest bidder, making her nothing more than a glorified prostitute but the word of the Lord will defeat their plans and schemes. “See that no one is sexually immoral or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights. Afterward, as you know, when he wanted to inherit this blessing, he was rejected. He could bring about no change of mind, though he sought the blessing with tears“ (Hebrews 12:16-17). The bride in San Francisco is not for sale. There is only one worthy to receive this bride and that is Jesus- and He is at hand!

Paul warns us to beware of angels of light, which were false apostles. “But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast. For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light(2 Corinithans 11:12-14). There are many people vying for position and power where it concerns San Francisco who, without a healthy fear of God or understanding of the work of the Lord in this region, are trying to force their agendas on us, they are trying to force their ‘seed’ on us.

Ephesians 4:11, “For it was HE who gave some to be apostles…” Apostles are not self appointed, nor are they man appointed but God appoints and anoints these servant leaders. True apostles are given authority and responsibility to wisely build according to God’s blueprint which is JESUS! They are also called to discern and honor the work and the workers in their region, equipping them for the true work of the Lord until Christ be formed within us. Apostles are also called to defend the work of the Lord in their region from the many seductions and distractions, which include false doctrines, false apostles, false agendas, etc. In fact, Paul, under the unction of the Holy Spirit, in the word of God publicly warns the church of these false apostles by name, also warning the church of the many false doctrines and the schemes and cunning of man. These words are now forever canonized as a pattern for us to follow.

“The hard working farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this” (2 Timothy 2:6-7). So let us repent and let us agree with God. Luke 14:7-11 puts it this way, “So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them: ‘When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him; and he who invited you and him come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, go up higher.’ Then you will have glory in the presence of those who sit at the table with you. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.’

Nehemiah’s Reform

God is establishing San Francisco as a holy city with a royal priesthood that is properly aligned with His priorities, both spiritually and financially. The tithes were primarily set apart for priestly intercession, which includes thanksgiving, praise and interceding to make atonement for the sins of God’s people and the land. The tithes were also set apart to help the poor, needy, orphan, and widow. The early church sold all their possessions and shared all things in common, giving to those who had need. Nowadays, the tithe primarily goes to pay for pastors’ salaries, building expenses, and administrators with little or no financial support going to the ministry of priestly prayer, praise and intercession. The bible is clear that we shall make our living by the gospel, so I am not saying that pastors are not worthy of financial support. I am saying that there needs to be reform. Nehemiah 13:7-12: “…and I came to Jerusalem and discovered the evil that Eliashib had done for Tobiah, in preparing a room for him in the courts of the house of God. And it grieved me bitterly; therefore I threw all the household goods of Tobiah out of the room. Then I commanded them to cleanse the rooms; and I brought back into them the articles of the house of God, with the grain offering and the frankincense. I also realized that the portions for the Levites had not been given them; for each of the Levites and the singers who did the work had gone back to his field. So I contended with the rulers, and said, “Why is the house of God forsaken?” And I gathered them together and set them in their place. Then all Judah brought the tithe of the grain and the new wine and the oil to the storehouse.” It’s time to believe God for His citywide house of worship and prayer for all peoples to be gloriously established both spiritually and financially. We are overdue. Which one of you will have the courage to buck the system in order to fulfill the word of the Lord? Today, Tobiah comes in many forms. This spirit’s aim is to disrupt and distract through discouragement and nay saying to ultimately stop the work of the Lord. It’s time to cleanse the temple of this wicked spirit once and for all, starting with our own hearts.

Mount Zion

The Lord showed me a spiritual math equation…133+50= POWER. The 133 stands for Psalm 133 and that is where the Lord commands the blessing in our unity. The 50 stands for Pentecost, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit
of God then strongly impressed upon me that praise is the key that will bring us to the place of one accord, and when they were with one accord in the Upper Room, there came the sound of a mighty rushing wind! It’s time for the fulfillment of Joel 2:28-32, where the Lord promises that His spirit will be poured out upon all flesh in the last days. “Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises! For God is the King of all the earth; Sing praises with understanding” (Psalm 47:6-7). This Scripture reminds us that God has it all under control and that we ought to praise Him as though we believe that. Many spirit-filled believers are sensing that the move of God is at hand. They’re right! It’s time to welcome the King of Glory by making His praise glorious! (Psalm 66:2) We’re one
mile from Mount Zion- let’s push this thing through!
It’s time to corporately stop everything that we are doing and praise Him until He comes to stay, for He inhabits the praises of His people! No agendas, no hype, just JESUS. “Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You. Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us, And all the ends of the earth shall fear Him” (Psalm
67:5-7).
