May 11, 2018 - 6AM-8 am: PROPHETIC WORDS

The Seven Rivers of Church at the Gate:

I saw seven rivers flowing out from CATG.  They were 7 ministering rivers that changed lives as they flowed from our church into our city, region, and beyond.  They were flowing in all directions.

The first river is called "Harvest".  It is flowing out to usher in the harvest.  It is changing lives from darkness to light.  It is setting free the captives and restoring lost souls to Christ.

The second river is called "Divine Physical Healing".  It is flowing out and healing the sick and the broken.  Miracles are happening everywhere the river goes.

The third river is called "Divine Inner Healing".  It is flowing out and healing souls, emotional wounds, and broken hearts.  It is also healing mental illness.  I watched as dozens were being healed at the same time.

The fourth river is called "Equipping".  It is flowing out to train up and equip the saints of God to do the supernatural and to walk in the fullness of their calling and anointing.  People go into the river empty handed and come out fully equipped to do what God is calling them to do.

The fifth river is called "Activation".  It is ministering to all of those who have been equipped.  They are coming alive to their callings and destinies as they spend time in this river.

The sixth river is called "Generosity".  I saw as a river of generosity flowed out from CATG.  As it flowed, people shifted from being timid and holding back their gifts, anointing, talent, and belongings to generously sowing.  It brought a new understanding to the reality that everything I have been entrusted with belongs to the Lord.  There was great joy and excitement being released as people came to this river.

The seventh river is called "Restoration".  I watched as it flowed and restored marriages, families, influences, hope, and callings.  I watched as it awakened the dead areas, united fathers with children, and mothers with children.  It is restoring things that looked like they could never be restored.

Psalms 105:41-43

"He opened the rock and waters gushed out.  They ran in dry places like a river.  For He remembered His holy promise and Abraham His servant.  And He brought forth His people with joy and His chosen with gladness."

We are  coming out of our Egypt. We are thirsty.  Our hardened hearts (The dry places) are softened by the Holy Spirit, the Water of Life.  Our confidence is in Jesus our Rock.  For He remembers us.  He remembers His promises to us.  He will bring us forth with joy and gladness.  He will restore us with the refreshing of the Holy Spirit.  Jesus our Rock, opened Himself unto us.  He says come.  He will pour out His Spirit upon us.

Papa is Proud of You CATG!

Friday Morning May 11....  I shut my eyes and began to pray.  I heard the Lord say, "I am coming like a flood.  I am coming with a flood of My presence in this church.  Many, many, will be totally changed by the flood at Church at the Gate.  

Not only am I coming like a flood with My presence, but I am coming like a flood with people.  Open those doors wide and make room for the many.  They are coming, they are coming in droves.  They are going to experience my presence at CATG and then they are going to tell their friends and families. 

CATG has been made for My glory and made to host My glory.  Get ready because it is about to be poured out.  In fact, the pouring as already begun."  Papa is proud of you CATG!

I heard the Lord say, "People are going to come to Sioux Falls from out of the state, they are going to stumble upon CATG.  They are going to be so touched, that they are going to return home, pack up their belongings and move here."

Back to the Basics

What I have been sensing released is a "Back to the Basics." - Only going back to make sure the foundation is secure.  That if there are cracks in our foundation, they would be filled in and strengthened, so that forward motion would not be hindered.

The basics are:

      Prayer - The Lord will teach us to pray (The Lord's Prayer).

      The Beatitudes

      The Blood of Jesus

      The Work of the Cross

      Going Forth in the Fruit and the Gifts of the Spirit

      A Greater Revelation of the Father's Love

God is going to give us a deeper understanding of these things.  We will spend more "Mary" time and less "Martha" time.  A sitting at His feet until revelation has come and the orders have been dispatched.

This morning I heard the world "Minstrels".  In 2003, Bill Yount gave the word, "Call forth the minstrels upon the earth, for I am going  to send my Glory / Strategy".  Hallelujah!

And I hear the word "Encircle".  The picture I get is of an old western movie where the covered wagons were commanded to encircle for their safety and protection.  To make sure all were able to be protected as the battle could get fierce.

The Children's Worship

I see the children leading the congregation in worship, bringing freedom and dance, moving in blessing through the congregation, releasing the Holy Spirit, and releasing healing and wholeness during worship.

The children need some instruction, but they will catch fire and release a firestorm of God's glory, if they are empowered by the congregation to be used by the Lord.  They hold the release of destiny in their joy and exuberance.

New Wave of My Glory

My Bride,

I am releasing a new wave of My glory into your midst.  It will come with power, love and authority.  It will awaken the dead places in you and in the community around you.  It will restore what has been forgotten and lost.

With My glory comes My holiness.  I am washing you, My bride.  I am removing your reproach and your stains.  I am breaking off the past and it's wounds and hurts.  I am removing your desires for darkness and sin and I am giving you new desire.

I am making the things of this world less attractive to you and I am making the things of My Kingdom more attractive.  It is time to partner with My holiness.  It is time to say YES to My Will and My Kingdom.  

I am changing you from the heart out.  Your heart is leaning in toward Me and your restoration will begin in your heart. 

During this season, let Me wash you.  During this season, let Me change you.  During this season, allow Me to awake you from the inside out.

May 11, 2018  8pm-10pm prophetic words

Anointing and Awakening  

The Lord says, "I am going to anoint My servants at Church at the Gate."  I heard the Lord saying that He is going to awaken His people.

He is going to start with the staff,and He is going to anoint supernaturally our senior pastor (Dan Harwell).  He is going to bless and strengthen the foundation of His house. 

All people that have been spiritually sleeping are going to be awakened like never before.  We are going to see many gifts arising in this house (CATG).

I saw a vision of children, youth, men, and women, young and old with a great awakening.

The Lord says, "get ready to be overwhelmed by My Spirit."

Pouring out Blessings

"My People, this is My house and I am going to pour My blessings upon you.  Blessings of all kinds:  Financially, Spiritually, and more.  My house will be fully overflowing with bread.  It's easy for Me," says the Lord.

Whirlwind of the Supernatural

I feel like the Lord is pleased with our sacrifice.  We are creating a whirlwind if the supernatural.  The whirlwind is His power, glory, and honor, all rolled into one.  This is a habitation not a visitation of the Holy Spirit.  Our glory well has been dug.  We are ready for the greater things in the Spirit.  We say YES!

Keep your focus on your mission

Samson knew where the secret of his power lied.   But he also enjoyed the pleasures of life.  And he allowed his desire for pleasure to destroy his true mission on earth.  Instead of keeping things from Delilah when he discovered her desperation to destroy him, he went ahead an revealed his true secret to her thinking it would cause her to leave him alone.

The same is happening in the church.  Christians are playing with distractions.  The devil is trying to pull us away from our mission.  Keep your focus on your mission.  Remember, the devil is not playing with you.  His mission is to steal, kill, and destroy.  But he is not able to do that unless you allow it.  The only way he can do that, is if you willingly give him the key that God has already given you.  Keep your focus on the mission.

His Glory Shines on this House

I see the ground all around CATG fall away, but the church stands on the Solid Rock, the foundation of truth.  Our praises are heard in heaven and angels dance and sing and glorify with us as we praise the Lord.  His glory shines on His house like a spotlight which attracts unbelievers like bugs to a light.  

No matter what Satan comes against us with, God will help us stand fast against Him.  The enemy is a defeated foe. 

Amen!  Hallelujah!

Take the City

The Lord has called us to take the city of Sioux Falls.  To do that, we must remove the strongman.  God will show us how to deal with the spirit on the land.

Chopping Off the Head of the Snakes

Recently, I felt led to pray for the younger generation (18 and under).  As I was praying tonight, I started declaring, "No more" to the attacks of the enemy on their lives.  

I got a picture of me with an axe in my hand.  I saw that the attacks on the younger generation were coming from snakes.  As I declared an end to these attacks, I saw myself chopping off the heads of the snakes.  

The snakes represented attacks like abortion, suicide, gun violence, along with immorality and other things that also target the youth's minds, attention, and time. 

After chopping off the heads of the snakes, I spoke "life and healing" to the generation.

Prophetic Picture

An Eagle!  Beautiful!  With wings outstretched!  Souring high above.  

Such Grace!  Such Peace!  

Aware of the ground beneath, but unaffected by it.  Also, aware that the sky's the limit, and yet the path for him is laid out before him.

Keen Vision - in all kinds of conditions.  

The weather does not deter nor cloud his vision.  

Confidence!  Comfortable being alone, having left all that is know and comfortable.  

Launching out into uncharted territory.  No path to follow except the one that his Creator has laid out for him.

The Lord says, "Launch out into the deep.  There is no place that I am not.  That first step seems scary but it is more secure than you know.  I do not call you to where I am not.  I call you to come to Me on the water,  To soar on the unknown heights.  Be not afraid.  I'll take you further than you can imagine.  You see, I am limitless.  And I can take you to where I am.  Will you trust Me, My church, My bride?"

Get Ready!

"My children, I am stirring up the waters.  I am shifting the atmosphere.  I am moving the mountains.  I am bringing a shift to Church at the Gate.  I am breathing a fresh wind upon you.  I am bringing alignment.  I am preparing you for an outpouring like you have never seen before.

I am the architect of this new movement.  

I am tipping the bowls of intercession that have held your prayers.  I am releasing the response to your prayers.  I am releasing My glory and My Holy Spirit in this new movement that has begun.

The power is increasing.  No longer will you feel the static electricity and settle for a false finish line.  For I am turning up the wattage of My power.  It will be as lightning from Heaven.  For this power will shift everything that it touches.  I am releasing this power to you accompanied by My glory and by My Spirit.

So Get Ready!  Get ready, My children!  Position your heart to receive.  Position your posture to receive.  For I wish to use you as a conduit of My power.  I long to pour My glory into you and through you and into the world around you.

So get ready, my children.   Do not shrink back from my movement.  Do not be fearful of change, for I am doing a new thing.  I am bringing water to the wasteland.  

I am bringing life where there was death.  I am releasing strength where there was weakness.  I am giving beauty for ashes.  I am giving hope where there has only been fear and doubt.  I am bringing my healing to the broken, both those broken in body and those broken emotionally. 

This is a new season.  Get ready!  Step in!  Step in!


No More Games

Last Evening in prayer, I asked for deeper intercession for myself, and the Lord granted my request.  And I sensed such seriousness, not heaviness, but seriousness.  And I heard the Lord say, "No More Games!"

This morning as I was driving to come to prayer, the birds were, "playing games".  They were sitting on the road in my path.  And it was like they were calculating how long they could safely sit there without being hit.  This happened several times and I felt as if the Lord was confirming His word to me from last night.  "No More Games".

Counting the Cost

"I long to tabernacle with you, My children.  I long to show you My face and reveal to you new levels of My presence.  I am calling you to be a host for My presence, where your entire region can come and receive.  I will manifest My presence in tangible ways.  There will be no denying My glory in your midst.

My heart is that you will receive this mantle and this calling.  I am asking you to pay the price.  My yoke is easy and My burden is light, however, there is still a price tag to hosting My presence and my glory.

The cost needs to be weighed and counted.  Will you count the cost?  Will you be the priests that I am calling you to be?  Will you allow me to wash you and re-cloth you in new priestly garments?  Will you re-prioritize your life and your agenda so that My presence takes preeminence in your life?  Will you take on less of the worldly things  and their comforts so that you make room for My things, My comfort and My joy?   Will yo count the cost?  And then, will your yes be yes?

This is the cry of My heart for you, Church at the Gate.  This is My desire for you.  I long to tabernacle with you.  I long to touch your region through your faithfulness, obedience and willingness.  Let My love reign in your midst.

Do everything in love.  Let love be your yardstick.  Use my love as the thermostat to measure your agendas and your ministries.  Do it all for love.

For I only pour out My power where My love is flowing.  I only release My fullness where My love is alive and active.  Let your church's culture be a culture of My love.  Let your community see you as a house of the love of God.  That is where my presence will dwell.  That is where My glory will manifest.  That is where I will tabernacle in your region.  Count the cost and become a tabernacle of My love."


The Train of His Robe Fills the Temple

During the song, "I saw the LORD...The train of His robe fills the temple...Angels circle around", I asked the LORD, "What does that look like?".  

The scene is set in a vast auditorium, a darkened auditorium, and the LORD is on His throne.  Wait, this is in the temple, a vast theatre filled with Saints, a place where the light appears low, except for the lights on the LORD.  or is He the light?  Yes.

His platform is raised up, but not so high that we cannot see.  The train of His robe seems to be gossamer, gold, heavy yet transparent, moving of HIS accord, filling the darkened space, touching each of us and remaining on us with HIS liquid caressing love, filling every space, touching every saint, as a ground fog.  No one untouched.

The angels are gathered around on the upper balconies, encircling the saints, hushed.  Watching with such stillness as though holding their collective breath; that we, flesh and blood, followers of Jesus, should soak in and consume from the very air we breath, the palpable love of HIM.  As thick humidity, we breathe in the weighty pure air of HIS love and glory.

Wait.  He is caressing us with HIS love and glory; each saint's rapt gaze on HIM, receiving HIS amazing attention and laser focus.  Receiving our identity, being seen, one on one, and face-to-face, in the massive crowd.  Soul hunger receiving HIS illuminating purpose.

Hushed.  Stillness.  Overcome.  Wonder.  Gladly soaking.  More.  There's more.

"Walk in My glory, child.  Walk with Me.

See with transformed eyes, and perceive with transformed minds.

Always with Me, and I Am always with you.

Come here to this place anytime!

I AM glad, desiring to show you My glory, and cover you with it.  I have made you for such glory - you are a glory bearer.

Chin up, My beloved.  Gaze now in My eyes.  Breathe deeply, breathe in My very essence: spirit soul and body.  Every part of you is touched by My glory.  Yes, all the way to your hidden, working DNA.

That's it; your getting it.

I AM always the lifter of your face, the raiser of the dead.  I AM resurrecting every bit you thought destroyed, lost, stolen, or squandered.

Yes! Here you go.

Are we not glorious together; an amazing romance story? I AM your hero.  You are the ardent focus of My rescue.  I want you fully restored, My partner.

Come, My beloved.  I will continue to robe you, too, in glory, beauty, and wholeness."

Oh, I raise my arms to You my Rescuer, my Love, My better-than-I-can-imagine.  You sweep me in Your arms.

What? I'm on your lap in the Temple?  With the gossamer gold of Your glory robe soaking your glory and love into me, through my thirsty, dry skin into every thirsty, dry cell.

I receive, My King.  My Love.  My God.

My heart breathes out, "You are All.  You are More.  You are my Near One.  My warmth and strength.  Love of my life"


"What could separate us now?  Don't pull away, beloved.  We'll be together through your every daily moment, and if you forget, I AM here, with you, your NEAR ONE."


"____________________ (Insert a Name), this is the exact moment your loneliness ends!  This is the year.

I DECREE you, __________________, are not alone.  You are not an orphan.

The LORD is here.  the LORD has placed you in a family, bigger and more loving and inclusive than you can fathom.  Come join us!"

I see Him lifting His veil, He is lifting His train.  He is standing to spread His train of Glory across the face of the earth, as one lifts and makes a sheet airborne to cover a bed.

Oh, the LORD is twinkling with joyous anticipation and delight as Holy Spirit blows the glorious breath of HIS plan and lifts the sheet.

He sees we are watching!

He loves showing us; showing off for us!

A Glorious Architect.  A Glorious Warrior.


Prayer for our city:

You're the God of miracles...

Prayers through this song, our hands directing our hearts desires for our city, praying aligned with HIS heart for humanity, the people of our city.

Seeing prayers through this song spreading like a mosquito fogger as it drives through the neighborhoods.

Holy Spirit's breath of life will go everywhere; every household and every person will be touched by the Lord's honoring of our prayers.

Back in the Temple, now I'm up in the aerial perspective, looking down upon the scene, seeing far below the gossamer, living Train of Glory moving through every space, touching every saint, the angels craning their necks to see. and wonder and glory.


I see a drill - huge - working to go through a hard, resistant, crust on the soil.  The drill is bright, clean clean metal - And it stays clean as it drills.  The Goal - which it will reach - is a vein of beautiful, flowing gold.  Will it be oozed out - or will it be like a geyser? - I don't have the full picture.

Airport Hub

I saw CATG as a hub, like an airport hub, with the seven spirits of God flowing out of it, flowing to the city and the region.

The Seven spirits of the Lord:

1. The Spirit of Wisdom

2. The Spirit of Understanding

3. The Spirit of Counsel

4. The Spirit of Might

5. The Spirit of Knowledge

6. The Spirit of the Fear of the Lord.

7. The Spirit of delight in the Fear of the Lord

Isaiah 11:1-2

I am Sending My Rain

I am opening up the Heavens over you, CATG.  I am pouring out from the floodgates of My throne.  I am sending a new rain, one that will refresh you, but not only refresh you, it will also transform you.  I am sending new waves of My glory.  I am selecting you for such a time as this.

I am asking you to carry My rain in this region.  I am asking you to be a welcome center.  There are multitudes who need My rain in this season.  They need a fresh outpouring of My transformation power.

This is not simply a refreshing rain, it is not a "feel good" rain, it is a transformation outpouring that will shift people out of lack and out of complacency and into destiny.

Will you carry My rain?  Will you host My presence and be a spiritual Welcome Center? Will you embrace those who need my transformation power?

Uninhibited Freedom

We have been set free.  We are unshackled and uninhibited.  May we spur each other on to good works.  Let us have a continual hunger and thirst for righteousness.  let us feel free to Feast.  We can feast!  The Lord will always be enough nourishment for us.  We do not have to be afraid of running out of strength with the Lord.  He sustains.  I saw this church celebrating the Kingdom here on earth like football fanatics celebrate over touchdowns. 

Many congregations wish to celebrate that way, but they feel inhibited.  God is calling us to continually pursue freedom and un-inhibition.


All My promises are Yes and Amen to you, my children.  They are Yes to those who are in Christ.  They are Amen to My glory.  This is the season that I am calling you to take inventory of the promises that I have given you.  It is a season to stand upon my promises.  It is time for you to say YES and AMEN to all that I have committed to you.

This is not a season to settle for partial fulfillment.  Do not move into forgetfulness.  It is time to remember what I have promised.  it is time for new expectation to rise up in you.  For I am ready to meet your expectation.  What are you expecting for in this season?  I am going to meet your greatest expectation.

Energizing Passion

I am not sure what energizing passion looks like, but that is what I heard from the Lord and I thought it was cool.

A Deep Well of God's Word

Oh, that this house would become a well of His Word, and that our Identity would be so deeply grounded in His Word that that is where we would live from.  Oh that the overflow of His Word would just come out whenever we speak.  As we speak His Word it would go out with authority and shatter all things that exalt themselves against Christ and His desires.

Jaffa Gate - David's Gate

As I was praying at the west gate of Sioux Falls before worship tonight, I was reminded of the west gate of the old city of Jerusalem (The Jaffa Gate) also known as the Hebron Gate, or David's Gate.  As Church at the Gate seeks the heart of the tabernacle of David and releases that Glory, the Gates of this city will be fortified so that we may call all our gates "Praise", and the walls around this city, "Salvation".  No weapon formed against it will prosper!  



Remember dear friends what the apostles foretold.  "In the end times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly thoughts and actions.  These are people that try to divide us.  They follow mere natural instincts, and do not have the Spirit. 

But you dear friends, by building yourself up with the most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ.  

Be merciful to those who doubt, save others by snatching them from the fire.  To others, show mercy mixed with fear, hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.

To Him who is able to keep you from stumbling and with Great Joy.  To the only God, our Savior, be glory, majesty, power, and authority, through Jesus Christ, our Lord before all ages.  AMEN!

James 1:22

Be a doer of the Word.  We have lukewarm in our midst.  I am sensing that Lord say, "It is OK, because I have given you Holy Spirit Fire to warm up the lukewarm.  The lukewarm will experience the boil of the Fire of the Lord deep inside of them.

My Arms will Encompass You!

My children, dark times are coming, but take refuge in Me, and you will weather the storm.  My arms will encompass you, My angels will protect you.  My love will fill you.  And You will be Safe.  The devil tries to conquer, but wherever My Name is spoken, My light shines, and he must GO!

CATG is a Military Base

I see CATG as a military base.  It has been strategically placed where it is.  People will come and people will go, but all is strategic.  All we need to do, is that which we are called to do, and He will take care of what we need.  When reinforcements are needed, we need only ask and they will be sent.

I see CATG will be a well known base, a base to go for healing, for reprieve, a base for training, for equipping , and base to run to for covering and a base to be send out form.


I saw a picture of the children from CATG in a field laughing and playing with Abba Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.  Jesus was joyfully painting their faces, at the time it seemed like play, but I realized He was painting their faces with their identities of who they are in Him.  They danced around with their painted faces and the enemy came to try to smudge the paint. But, they stood strong boldly declaring, "NO! This is from my Father and you cant touch it."

Lift up your eyes!

Lift up your eyes, my church, to the hungry.  The hungry are all around you.  I am waking up spiritual hunger in your city and region.  I am breathing My breathe over the lives of the broken and they are awakening to hunger.

Lift up your eyes, my church to these precious ones who are ripe for the Harvest.  Hope will draw them.  Love will keep them.  

It is time to operate in My hope and in My love in greater measure.  It is time to release My love and My kindness.  My kindness will bring the lost to repentance.  My hope will lift up the heads of the downcast.

You are equipped, my church.  You have everything you need.  There is plenty!  You have been made ready for such a time as this.

Lift up your eyes, my church, and then move on what you see.  Step out as you see these precious ones around you.  For they are ripe and ready for harvesting.


I got a picture of a leaf curled up at its sides.  And I heard the word, "Cradled".  Like we are resting in the leaf, protected and safe, able to ride the waves and the tide.

Tongues of Fire

I see tongues of fire all over this congregation.  The Spirit is moving.

The Mind of Christ

Stop thinking and asking How, Why, When!  Take on the mind of Christ.  He alone can ready us.  We need only decide to press in to the throne room.  We are already seated in Heavenly realms.

Simplify.   Purpose to remove the hooks of wasting time and efforts on worthless things.  Get in the Word, meet together in unity, Curb your appetite to include feasting on all of Christ's bounty.

I heard the Spirit say...

The Spirit says the Gate will be the largest escape from Sioux Falls.  People will come also to be blessed by the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is really getting ready to move!  AMEN.


Foot Soldiers

Last night, it was about being "Cradled", resting etc...  And when I think about that, it makes sense to me, Yesterday was Sunday, the Western Sabbath Day.

But this morning, before getting here I heard, "Foot Soldiers"  There are nine references to foot soldiers in the Word.

Two definitions:  

1. A soldier who fights on foot, an infantryman.

2. A person who carries out important work but does not have a role of authority in an organization or field.

The special weapon of the foot soldier or infantryman is the bayonet.  We as believers can substitute the Sword of the Spirit.

The Lord says, "Today is a new day.  A new day in My love. And I have commissioned you; commissioned you to go. 

Go in My command.  In the natural realm, foot soldiers where placed before the armies for heavy fighting and the first sacrifices of war.  But not so with Me, I am the commander of the host, I go before you.  It is at My trumpet call that you will proceed.  Listen for it, Attune your ear to hear.  Be quick to respond. Reject the fear.  Victory in Me and with Me is a sure thing.  But fight we must.  It's the good fight of faith.  Believe Me!  Believe in Me! Set your eyes, fix your eyes on Me.  I will not disappoint.  You will see!  Be encouraged this day.  This New Day!  For you are in ME and I am in you.  Your Ever-Present One."


"My Children, I see your hunger.  I know that you long and hunger for more.  I know that your hearts desire is that My Kingdom come and My will be done in your church, your cities, and your region.

I tell you, My children, put your hunger on display.  when you put your hunger on display it awakens hunger in those around you.  When you no longer hold back or hide your passion and your inner hunger, others are stirred up in faith as well.

There is a synergy that I am awakening in My church.  There is a unity and a oneness that I am honing in you at this time.  This synergy will usher in a New Move of My Spirit.  This unity will bring about My fire, My wind, and My rain.

So, no longer withhold your hunger.  No longer keep it on the inside.  But, put it on display for the world to see.  Be open and bold with your hunger.  For an awakening is coming.  A re-prioritizing is happening.  This is not just a stirring, this is a New Movement.  And it begins with Synergy.

Tested Faith  

Our Faithfulness will be tested.  Zechariah 13:9.  I will refine them like silver and test them like gold.  Find us faithful Oh Lord.

More than enough!

My children, I love your passion for Me and My Kingdom.  I remind you that you are not able to release the fullness of My Kingdom in your own strength.  Where your strength fails, and where your resources dry up, remember that my strength will always sustain, and My resources know no bounds.

So, do not rely on your own plans, or try to be strategic, or try and move spiritually in your own strength alone.  Do not limit your capacity to your own resources alone.  For I will always provide.  I will always cover what you do, when you do it in My Name and according to My will.

Kingdom work requires Kingdom resources.  I am ready to release ALL that you need in every season.  I am provision.  I am more than enough.  I will always watch over My Kingdom's work.

So where you lack strength, lean on me.

Where you lack understanding, seek My Spirit, who gives wisdom and understanding.

Where you lack vision, trust my heart and lean not on your own understanding.

Where you lack finances, don't shrink back in fear, but seek first Me, My Kingdom, and My righteousness, and all things will be added unto you.

Where you lack compassion an love, release My heart and My love.  Move in My love and you will always have more than enough. 

My Kingdom is a Big Kingdom.  I have all your need.  I will pour out my provision on those who move in accordance to My will.

Be a Moses or a Joshua

Exodus 33:8-11

"So it was, whenever Moses went out to the tabernacle that all the people rose and each man stood at his tent door and watched Moses until he had gone into the tabernacle.  And it came to pass when Moses entered the tabernacle that the pillar of cloud descended and stood at the door of the tabernacle and the Lord talked with Moses. (INTIMACY)

All the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the tabernacle door and all the people rose and worshiped each man in his tent door.  (FROM A DISTANCE- NO CLOSE INTIMACY).

So the Lord spoke to Moses face to face as a man speaks to his friend.  And he would return to camp, But his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle." (THE ATTITUDE AND CHARACTER OF JOSHUA IN PREPARATION FOR WHAT GOD HAD IN STORE FOR HIM)

Do we want to be like the people in the desert watching from a distance, or do we want to be intimate like Moses, or even going beyond and abiding and preparing with God like Joshua?

Isaiah 54

“Sing, O barren,

You who have not borne!
Break forth into singing, and cry aloud,
You who have not labored with child!
For more are the children of the desolate
Than the children of the married woman,” says the Lord.
2 “Enlarge the place of your tent,
And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings;
Do not spare;
Lengthen your cords,
And strengthen your stakes.
3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left,
And your descendants will inherit the nations,
And make the desolate cities inhabited.

4 “Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed;
Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame;
For you will forget the shame of your youth,
And will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.

All your children shall be taught by the Lord,

And great shall be the peace of your children.
14 In righteousness you shall be established;
You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;
And from terror, for it shall not come near you.
15 Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me.
Whoever assembles against you shall fall for your sake.

No weapon formed against you shall prosper,

And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.

I see our church body becoming closer and closer with one another.  We will know what it means to fully function as one body.  Not just separate parts.  No one will be able to sever the body.  Sioux Falls will see this well-oiled and fully functioning system.  They will know us by our love for one another.

Beautiful Testimony

Dear Church at the Gate,

I am not currently a member here yet. But, I would, Lord willing, like to become one soon.  I have been impacted powerfully by the people of this church.  I am so thankful that my friend took me to the Monday night prophetic prayer ministry.  What I experienced that night was something that I was never exposed to in any of my other churches.

Then I met Bethany form the UHOP (Bethany John), and never met such a sweet individual,.  She is so on fire for the Lord, the Friend that invited me to the prophetic prayers at CATG has also been absolutely set ablaze with the Holy Spirit.  CATG has affected so many people.

Since my breakup with my fiance of 3 years, I have needed a close spiritual family.  And I know that this church will be there for me.

Daryl and Sandra have ministered so well to me.  I see this church worshiping God in ways that I have never experienced.  In no other church have I felt the freedom that I have experienced here.

Truth combined with Spirit is the best combination.  And that is exactly what this church is doing.

I am so excited to possibly bring the gift of dance and music.


My Word is a Hammer

I saw a hammer, and the Lord said, "Is not my Word like a hammer.  You should use My Word to break every stronghold.  My people, today, are using my Word so lightly.  That is why there are not much miracles."  Lord we use your hammer to break down strongholds and to release freedom in Jesus Name.

New Vision

God is giving His church new vision, to be able to see though what the world says and to be able to see what He says.  When believers see what is happening in the news, what is happening in Israel, they should see the truth of what God is doing.  

The church will no longer view what is happening through the earthly filters of fear, politics, religion, or prejudice, but instead through the revelation of God.  God is awakening His church.  When the church sees the truth and receives revelation from God they can press into and pray into what He is doing and partner with it.

From Sioux Falls to Jerusalem

As goes Church at the Gate, so goes Sioux Falls.  As goes Sioux Falls, so goes South Dakota.  As goes South Dakota so goes the Nation.  As goes the Nation (USA) so goes Jerusalem and the World.

A Sioux Falls company was selected to build two fire trucks for the new US Embassy in Jerusalem.  Ivan (CATG member) was able to work on these two trucks that are now on sight in Israel.

Fire is another sing of our God's power.  Ivan was able to work on these firetrucks that will now safeguard the Embassy in Jerusalem.  Sioux Falls was able to help protect a part of the capital city, the holy city, the restored city that was promised by God to His firstborn, Israel.

The Lion of the Tribe of Judah

I see the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.  He is Active, Up, and pacing back and forth.  His eyes are set and purposeful.  He is alert and watching for the enemy, who wants to come and steal the progress being made in these 10 days.  The Lion says, "You must be alert and diligent in the days ahead.  I am looking for a company that is relentless in their pursuit of Me.  Don't go back to ordinary life.  You were created for greatness, South Dakota!


I am the Great Restorer.  I am the One who takes the impossible situations and makes them possible.  I am the One who restores what has been lost, what has been destroyed and what has died.  I am the One who brings the dead things back to life.  

I am here to restore you.  I am here to restore your boldness.  I am here to restore your influence.  I am here to restore your health and wealth.  I am here to restore your families.  I am the Restorer.

Do not partner with sickness, disease, and death.  Do  not settle for less than what I say is yours.  Do not stop pursuing My life and My fullness.  Pursue until all things are fully restored.

I am an all consuming fire and I am burning through your church, your city, and your region.  I am sending My restoring flame.  I am releasing My power.  I am bringing you back.  I am restoring! I am restoring!  I am restoring!

God is Love

God wants everyone to know, He is Love.

Favor of God

What does it mean to have the favor of God?  Favor is the work I keep hearing regarding Church at the Gate.  Favor!  This is not just an earthly favor, this favor comes from walking in the Father's Love.  It is the presence of the King granting access to His bride.  The invitation to come close, Intimacy through Love!


Heaven on Earth.

CATG will be a place of heaven on earth.  People will be so attracted to this Spirit alive in our workplaces and homes.  They will want to have the kind of joy that the CATG-goers have.  And once we invite them to church with us, out of the out flowing of love for them, they will know that the Lord is the source of life.  He is the source of our joy.

CATG will be a wellspring of life.  Although it will be an invitational place to mourn, it will also be a place of Joy Continually!!!!

We will be a house of the Lord, and this will be true in our house:  "I was glad when they said to me, Let us go into the house of the lord."

Puzzle Pieces

I see an uncompleted puzzle.  Each of us is a puzzle piece that is needed to complete the picture.  A specific piece for a specific spot.

Lord, may we find, in this season, the gifting, talents, and passions that you have knit into us.  And may each of us discover your intended perfect plan that would ignite us and satisfy our individual purpose - The good works You ordained for us.  That we would be rightly fit and beautifully displayed in your puzzle.  And when completed, we would bring You glory.  Hallelujah!!!  We are like beautiful gems specifically placed in a majestic tiara.

Be That One!

The prayer of the righteous man is powerful and effective.  

-- One can put a thousand to flight.

-- Only one is needed to stand in the gap.

-- One can say, Here I am, Send Me!

-- He left the 99 and came for the One.

-- Be that One!

Decision:  Though none go with me, still I will follow.  (This One)

My Morning Prayer

I pray that the Lord "settle down on me", "settle down on this church".  That He would rest here, reside here.  That He would know He is welcomed and desired here.  And that we would welcome Him in all His fullness.  This would be His home, His habitation.  

Established as the "Head of the Home". having preeminence, honoring You above all.  Headship!  Lordship!  Ruler-ship! Teacher! Leader! Our Greatest Treasure! Lord of All! Prince of Peace! Defender!  King!  Abba!

And because of His presence, this place would be a landmark.  One of the meanings of landmark is: An event, discovery, change marking an important stage or turning point in something.  

Help us Lord to make a landmark decision for You.  That we be marked for You and that the evidence of being marked for You would be evident.

Then from this place will flow streams of living waters.  Flood this place, O Lord with Your presence.  Water every dry and thirsty place in us.  May the Living water cause life to be where there was only barrenness before.  May there be fruitfulness, abundance, with all needs met - like in the book of Acts.

And I see a picture of Ants.  They are coming to the resource, gathering what they need and taking it back to their nest.  The streams of ants are constant - Coming and Going - In an orderly fashion.

The wilderness time is over.  No more wandering aimlessly.  Call for the watchmen!  The Guardians!  The Angels!  The Intercessors!  Those Discerning!  To protect this house, to protect this anointing.  Posts at the Gate, to watch for moles, those who want to taint or destroy this work, those with hidden agendas, the snakes, those with deceptive motives.

Because not everything is as it seems.  Be vigilant, committed, fully armed, and ready.

Let there be clarity of mission.  Attuned in step!  Obedient! Willing to wait!  Willing to Go!  Honoring His Presence!  Holding Him in highest esteem!  Bowing before Him in humbleness of heart!

Call for the Scribes, those anointed to record every precious word with accuracy.  Interpreters!  Translators! Runners!  The Minstrels!  The Dancers! The Worshipers!  Those totally abandoned to worship our King in the fashion that He deserves.  Those willing to do exploits for the furtherance of the Kingdom.

Seek first the Kingdom, and all these things will be added!  Praise You Lord, We love You.


The Power of Words

"Death and Life are in the power of the tongue"  -Proverbs 18:21

"I call heaven and earth as witnessed today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessings and cursing, therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live."  -Deuteronomy 30:19

Your words are dictating your Destiny!

"But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another." -Galatians 5:15

Today is May 15th -5/15  the passage is Galatians 5:15  Interesting!

"You are snared by the words of your mouth; you are taken by the worlds of your mouth." - Proverbs 6:2

Jesus spoke the WORD of the Lord to Satan and commanded him to leave.  Then Jesus' ministry began.  "From that time Jesus began to preach and to say..." -Matthew 4:17

Change your thoughts, change your words, change your life. 

"Words aptly spoken are like apples of gold in settings of silver." - Proverbs 25:11

"Pleasant words are like a honey comb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

"Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my Strength and my Redeemer."  -Psalm 19:14


Church at the Gate, prepare for more miracles.  I am the God of healing and deliverance.

Led by the Spirit

As Israel was led by Moses, and a cloud by day and a fire by night.  I will and shall lead you, My people, by My Holy Spirit.   You have to trust Me. 

You are gaining ground, My people.  I am the Captain of the Army and I will give the commands and strategy to go forward.

Advance, Advance, Advance, says the Lord.  I am with you.  I will never leave you nor forsake you, says the Lord.

Good Soil

In the Last days God says, "I will pour out My Spirit."  The roots being planted are going into good soil.  Rich soil.  They are going deeper than ever before.  Trust in Jesus, the Rock of Salvation.

God hears your questions, God is answering prayers. 

Trust your dreams, write them down, watch for them to come true.  If you have concerns, give them up to God and let Him speak to you.  In your dreams, Accept the peace He sends to you.  He is Father and God.  He loves you!

No more restrictions

Many put God on a pyramid scale.  Putting Him at the bottom as the base or at the top because He is above all things.  But what about the space between the base and the top?  When we only put Him as the base or as the top, we are restricting Him.

God would rather be the center of a mobile, like the sun, where he is the start and the finish to everything.  Everything comes from God.

Make God the Center don't just put Him on your list.

I Saw Him Tonight

Jesus is the Image of the Invisible God.  I saw Him tonight as we prayed for healing for others in the healing room.  His presence was so strong.  The Joy and Laughter of His presence was so awesome.  Thank You, Jesus!

So He is the Image of the Invisible God, but He can be seen.  AMEN!

The Banner of Christ

I saw the Church at the Gate as a body running with the banner of Christ lifted high.  It was a huge banner, long and flapping in the wind.  It stood high above the people as we ran with it, like we were leading a charge.

Then the song, In Christ Alone, was playing with the words"  "No guilt in life, no fear in death, Jesus commands my destiny.... No power of hell, no fear of man, could ever pluck me from Your hand.... This is the power of Christ in me."

Because of the victory of Christ and the freedom from fear that comes with that, Church at the Gate fearlessly and unashamedly proclaims Christ.  Boldly holding high the banner of Christ for all to see.

We will Work Together

"You must learn to honor My presence.  You must learn how to protect the anointing.  It is a precious commodity, not to be wasted, not to be hoarded. 

I am coming to stay, and to dwell with you.  I love you, My precious bride! 

Many more will be coming!  Multitudes!  Get Ready!  Get Ready!  Get Ready!

You're not in this alone, and neither am I.  We will work together!  I want more children, and together we will accomplish this, the greatest of feats.


God let me meet a new friend.

Psalm 116

1 I love the Lord because he hears my voice
    and my prayer for mercy.
2 Because he bends down to listen,
    I will pray as long as I have breath!
3 Death wrapped its ropes around me;
    the terrors of the grave[a] overtook me.
    I saw only trouble and sorrow.
4 Then I called on the name of the Lord:
    “Please, Lord, save me!”
5 How kind the Lord is! How good he is!
    So merciful, this God of ours!
6 The Lord protects those of childlike faith;
    I was facing death, and he saved me.
7 Let my soul be at rest again,
    for the Lord has been good to me.
8 He has saved me from death,
    my eyes from tears,
    my feet from stumbling.
9 And so I walk in the Lord’s presence
    as I live here on earth!
10 I believed in you, so I said,
    “I am deeply troubled, Lord.”
11 In my anxiety I cried out to you,
    “These people are all liars!”
12 What can I offer the Lord
    for all he has done for me?
13 I will lift up the cup of salvation
    and praise the Lord’s name for saving me.
14 I will keep my promises to the Lord
    in the presence of all his people.

15 The Lord cares deeply
    when his loved ones die.
16 O Lord, I am your servant;
    yes, I am your servant, born into your household;
    you have freed me from my chains.
17 I will offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving
    and call on the name of the Lord.
18 I will fulfill my vows to the Lord
    in the presence of all his people—
19 in the house of the Lord
    in the heart of Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord!


Deep does Call out to Deep.

"Have you ever walked in search of the depths?" (Job 38:16b)

"In His hand are the deep places of the earth." (Psalm 95:4)

"He reveals deep and secret things." (Daniel 2:22)

"The Spirit searches all things, Yes, the deep things of God." (1 Corinthians 2:10) 

"Jesus said, Launch out into the deep." (Luke 5:4)

"Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!" (Romans 11:33a)

Oh the sense of yearning and longing of us toward Him, but even more so, from Him towards us.  I sense His desire to draw us closer, to take us deeper.  The longing is from Him and for Him and for us all.  And He is the only one who satisfies this longing, this yearning.  Every other source is a counterfeit.

"I am the real deal, and I stand with arms wide open, beckoning you closer.  Se My arms are outstretched to you.  Do you feel the burning within you? That is Me.  I  am a consuming fire.  I am "hot" for you, not cold not lukewarm, but white hot on fire for you, and I am relentless.  I won't back off, because it is the nature of My love to pursue.

I am committed to this.  It is My way.  my M.O. as it were.  I am in the business of drawing people to Myself.  Those not yet in My kingdom, but also drawing My children closer to Me.  So when you feel that tug, smile, because it is Me, loving you, beckoning you, wanting to spend time with you.  Come away with Me to a quiet place and get some rest."

A Spirit of Expectancy

A Spirit of expectancy is brooding over Church at the Gate.  Holy Spirit wants to move, but do we really want Him to be released?

The Lord yearns to lift each of us out of the limitations that we put on Him, trying to keep Him understandable, but He is without limit.  His desire is for us to give Him permission to display His glory and power, releasing it here to spread out farther than we can now imagine.  Let Him ignite us to be the display of His glory in the earth and beyond.

Supernatural Authority

I have called you to walk in fullness.  For far to long, My church has walked in only a small portion of what I have promised.  I am not a God who reneges on His promises.  I am the God of Abundance.  I do everything with extravagance.  I never do anything half way.  

I declare, that it is time for you to partner with My supernatural authority.  It is time to increase your expectation.  It is time to come fully alive and fully awakened to the extravagant love and supernatural authority I have for you.

For I always couple Power and Love together.  You must never attempt to move in My power without My love.  For power without love quickly turns to abuse.  Love is the required ingredient for My power to be released.  

You do not have to fear loving one another, for there is no fear in love.  My perfect love drives away all fear.

My supernatural authority is already on you.  It is yours by inheritance.  It has marked you since salvation.  However, to walk in its fullness requires a few things.  It must be activated.  It is activated by following these important steps.

1. Repentance

Throw off habitual sin.   Throw off carnality and earthly mindsets.  Throw off Guilt and Shame.  Stop gripping so tightly to your pain.

2. Forgiveness  

Follow My lead and move into lavish forgiveness.  Do not hold anything against anyone.  Do not come to My altar with your worship and gifts if you have odd against anyone.  Be quick to forgive.  

3. Love

Stop resisting My extravagant love.  Do not make excuses anymore as to why you are unworthy of My love.  for I love you unconditionally. Embrace My love.  It is a foundational requirement.  You are incomplete without it.  Everything in My Kingdom flows out from it.  You will never fully see My authority without My love.

4. Come

My Authority flows out from My throne.  You are invited to come, and come you must. Come often!  It is in My presence that I mantle My children with My supernatural Authority.

5. Expect

In My kingdom, you must not attempt to walk by what you see in the natural, nor by what you have seen in the past.  That is carnal understanding.  That carnal mindset is a shallow and broken vessel that is not capable of holding My true authority.  Instead, you must walk by faith and hope with great expectation.  You cannot afford to lean to your own understanding.  I will never trust My supernatural authority to man's carnal understanding.

Shift!  Shift, My children.  Step out in faith.  Expectation is the key to supernatural authority.

6. Listen

Listen for I will direct you as to how to use this authority.  For this authority is Mine and Mine alone.  It have it all.  The enemy no longer has any authority.  I is all Mine.  But I long to share it with you. But you must listen.  You must walk according to what you hear Me say and what you see Me do.

7. Position

To fully walk in My supernatural authority, My child, you must re-position yourself.  My authority is always purposeful.  It has divine directives on it.  it is not to be used inappropriately.  It has divine purpose.  

I will re-position you to the proper locations, the proper timing, the divine moments, where My authority is to be released.

--I will put you before leaders in the earth so that My authority can bring transformation to many.

--I will position you before the broken, so that My authority can set the captives free.

--I will position you before young saints, so that My authority can equip the next generation.

--I will position you before weary saints, so that My authority can awaken the sleeping church.

--I will position you before the lost, so that My kingdom can be established in the earth.

So Arise, My children, in this season to the fullness that I have for you.  My supernatural authority is being released in the earth in this hour.


Shackles are dropping off

Those in bondage are being loosed.  The wind of the Spirit is bringing healing.  Don't be afraid.  I am beside you, leading you.  Don't be afraid to use the gift I have given you.  I am restoring the first love you carried in the beginning of your walk with Me.

Walk in your Identity

As people start walking in their identity, it causes all kinds of things that hinder love to flee away. That this would be a place know for His peace and freedom, in Jesus Name!

Speak to Your Mountain

I hear your cry to move the mountains that stand before you.  I know the situations that you face.  I know the obstacles and the difficulties that you are praying about.  I see your fight, I see your endurance.  I see  your desire to advance.  I hear your cry for victory.

I remind you, my children, that My word calls for you to speak to the mountain.  Sometimes I speak on your behalf, and other times I ask your to speak on My behalf.  When it comes to moving mountains, it is your who speaks to mountain.

So I tell you, speak to your mountain.  Tell it to be uprooted and thrown into the sea.  Speak for me.  Use My authority and do not shrink back.  Be My ambassador and My mouth piece.  And you will see the mountains move.  

What your bind on earth, I will bind in Heaven.  What you lose on earth will be loosed in heaven.  I will back you up.  When you stand in My name and speak on My behalf, I will support you and all of heaven will back you up.

Psalm 25[a]

Of David.

1 In you, Lord my God,
    I put my trust.

2 I trust in you;
    do not let me be put to shame,
    nor let my enemies triumph over me.
3 No one who hopes in you
    will ever be put to shame,
but shame will come on those
    who are treacherous without cause.

4 Show me your ways, Lord,
    teach me your paths.
5 Guide me in your truth and teach me,
    for you are God my Savior,
    and my hope is in you all day long.
6 Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love,
    for they are from of old.
7 Do not remember the sins of my youth
    and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
    for you, Lord, are good.

8 Good and upright is the Lord;
    therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
9 He guides the humble in what is right
    and teaches them his way.
10 All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful
    toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.
11 For the sake of your name, Lord,
    forgive my iniquity, though it is great.

12 Who, then, are those who fear the Lord?
    He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.[b]
13 They will spend their days in prosperity,
    and their descendants will inherit the land.
14 The Lord confides in those who fear him;
    he makes his covenant known to them.
15 My eyes are ever on the Lord,
    for only he will release my feet from the snare.

16 Turn to me and be gracious to me,
    for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 Relieve the troubles of my heart
    and free me from my anguish.
18 Look on my affliction and my distress
    and take away all my sins.
19 See how numerous are my enemies
    and how fiercely they hate me!

20 Guard my life and rescue me;
    do not let me be put to shame,
    for I take refuge in you.
21 May integrity and uprightness protect me,
    because my hope, Lord,[c] is in you.

22 Deliver Israel, O God,
    from all their troubles!

Get On Board!

I hear, "Get on board"!  And I see a locomotive, the engines are running and smoke is coming out of it's smokestack.

The train is taking off.  A glorious ride is ahead.  It is the glory train!  Hop Aboard!  The Conductor has set the schedule for the time of departure.  All Aboard!

The Bride is Getting Ready

During worship tonight, I saw a beautiful mountain chalet, high up in the mountains.  It was beautiful.  Snow covered the trees and the view was breathtaking.  I was taken inside the chalet and wandered around inside until I came to a huge walk in closet.  Inside I saw a bride getting ready for her wedding.  She had many attendants helping her.  She was exquisite in beauty.  She wore a pure white gown.  I knew at that moment that i was in the bridal chamber.

She was so beautiful and completely ready for her Bridegroom.  Then they had their "first look".  The first look between a Groom and His bride.  The Groom was Jesus and He looked so joyful and giddy as He looked at His bride.  The "first look" was pure love.


He Nailed It!

“He made us alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwritings of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us.  And he had take it out of the way, having “nailed it” to the cross.


Time for the Meat

Church at the Gate, you didn’t choose Me, I chose you.  And it’s time.  It is time for the meat.  For I have fed you with milk and not with solid food, for until now you were not able to receive it.  (1 Corinthians 3:2)

When your diet switches to meat, some may choke at first.  It can be a little harder to swallow.  But its time!

Meat comes from Meeting with Me. I am the pure word. 

The words of the Lord are “Pure Words” like silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. (Psalm 12:6)

It is perfected, it is true.  It does not compromise.  It is a trust-worthy standard.  It is to be digested! Meditated on! Ruminate My Word.  Like the cow who chews its cud.  More revelation will come with each bite, Enjoy Me.  Enjoy My word.  Let me do what is needed to bring you to the place of My desire.  The place of your need and the place of utmost usefulness for the Kingdom.

You see in many ways this move has just begun.  There is so much more.  But I need this church to be ready.  And, I am able to accomplish this task.  Trust me!  I will not lead you to where I am not.  There is a designated path and I am able to keep you on it.  You must stay close to me on this narrow road.  You do not travel alone. See my hand, hear my heart!  Love poured out through these, even My eyes are filled with love fore you.  Believe this. 


A Word for This Time

The Faithfulness of God

The Powerful Name of Jesus

Togetherness with God

United with each other in the Body

These are the things that will break down the walls and release power from on High. We need to come against and cast out invaders, demonic strongholds.  Call down the blood of Jesus. Come blow Holy Spirit.  

Press In

Continue to press in.  Don’t stop.  Don’t hold back.  I have so much more for you. I have so much more I want to show you.  To teach you.  I have freedom for you.

I am enlarging your heart so that you have a greater capacity for love.  Come up.  Come up.  Continue to fix your eyes on Me.  Come up above all the things that would distract you or trip you up or lull you back to sleep.  Com up above the pain, confusion and battles you are engaged in. 


Thank you for Your Sacrifice!

My Children, I am moved by your sacrifice.  I have always been moved by the sacrifices of My people.  In ancient times and today, I always respond to the sacrifices of My children.

However, in today’s world, sacrifice has become less and less.  Comfort has replaced sacrifice.  Convenience has become a high value in the church.  Christians today long for ease.  Comfortable services!  Convenient worship! 

But I say to you, that I am still moved by sacrifice.  For I am the same yesterday, today and forever.  My heart is moved by your sacrifice. 

So continue!  Continue to sacrificially worship.  Continue to bring Me costly gifts of praise.  For I will meet you.  I will partner with the sacrifices of My people.


The Lord has been speaking to me about Sacrifice this morning.  How provision of promise comes after we position our hearts rightly before Him.  We might have to leave things, even good things, in our lives for something greater (Time with Him).  When the famine comes, we are satisfied and filled, because like Jesus said in John 4, we have food others don’t know of.  Those things we have to leave, will be restored.  It’s all about the sacrifice, building our entire heart upon Him and His Word.  This is our Identity!!  Scriptures: 2 Kings 8  and Genesis 22:13.


Shifting Gears

The Lord showed me a gear shift in a sports car.  A multitude of us were packed into the car.  We were in second gear.  And we were driving as fast as we possibly could in second gear.  We were winding up the engine in second gear.  Then I saw a hand with a signet ring reach down and shift the car from second gear to fifth gear. We missed third and fourth.

I heard the Lord say, “I am redeeming the time.  The season for third and fourth are already behind you.  As a redeemer of time, I desire to catch you up to the gear and the momentum that you should already be in. Let me shift you in this season.  Allow me to redeem the time.”

As the Lord said this and did this, several people in the car were excited, as if they had been praying for this to happen for many years.  Others, however, were instantly anxious about the idea of making such a shift.  It was like when you are on the roller coaster and the track is slowly taking you up and up and up, knowing that as soon as you reach the top, the coaster would speed down the other side.  It brings exhilaration to some and trepidation to others.

The Lord said, “Trust Me!  I am trustworthy.  There are still multiple gears ahead.  Fifth gear is not your highest gear.  It is just where you are today.  There will be times when I speed things up with My spirit of acceleration.  Then there will be times when we will intentionally slow down.  But you must be willing to let Me shift you.  Let Me drive!  As long as you let Me set the pace and the speed, it will always be the correct speed for you”

Exercise your Spiritual Muscles

As I asked the Lord what He would have me pray for CATG, This word came to me.  “Exercise your spiritual muscles so that they are ready when I call you to use them”

Enter into My Flow

This is the time to enter in.  The Gatekeepers must enter in.  Enter into worship, enter into prayer, enter into My love.  Lean into Me and My Spirit will erupt.  It will flow like the rivers of lava flow out from a volcano.  My Spirit will flow out of you and move and flow out your doors into the community. Everything the flow touches will be changed.  Transformation will take place!  Enter in and be a conduit of My flow.

Healing Word

I saw a vision of a new born baby, wrapped in a baby blanket.  When I asked the Lord what this was, God said, “Anyone who is barren can receive their baby by faith.”

Slalom Skiing

I got a picture of slalom skiing, so I looked up the meaning.  The origin is Norwegian.  Noun:  A ski race down a winding course marked by flags or poles (known as gates).  Verb: To move or race in a winding path avoiding obstacles.  It involves skiing between gates and poles.

There are strategic moves with this sport, calculated, precise.  It takes much practice, training, focus, etc.

Another thing that stand out is Passion!  All In!  Disciplined!  Pressing in for more!  Faster, better, breaking through to higher, to the highest!  On the fast track to victory!  Over coming victory!  Pursuing, achieving, excelling!  Rising up to greater!  Eye on the prize!  Wanting more!  Not being satisfied with current places!  Knowing there is more!

Be Ready

The Lord says, “It is not time to GET READY, it is time to BE READY!”

Though we walk through the valley of death, we shall fear no evil, for our God is with us.


Watch as I Swing Open the Gate

“Over the past 9 days, you have faithfully gathered at the Gate – the gate to My glory.  You have gathered with anticipation.  You have gathered with expectation.  I have seen your hunger.  I have seen your heart.  I have seen your faithfulness.  And I have seen your determination.

I am a reactionary God.  When you act, I react.  When you draw near to Me, I draw near to you.  When you ask, I answer.  When you knock, I open to door.  Therefore, My children, watch as I swing open the Gate to My glory.  Watch as I respond to your hunger, your heart, your faithfulness, and your determination.  I am the God who answers by Fire.  Watch as I burn through the circumstances of your life.  Watch as I bring transformation and change.  Watch as I do amazing thing in your midst.”   


My Hand is Upon You

“My hand is not small, and My arm is not short.  I know you better than you know yourself.

  • I know your heart.
  • I know your desires.
  • I know your hunger.
  • I know your needs.
  • I know your pain.
  • I know your concerns.
  • I know your dreams.
  • I know your potential.
  • I know your gifts.
  • I know your anointing.

And My arm is reaching out to touch you.  My hand is upon you even now.

  • I am ministering to your hearts.
  • I am fulfilling your desires.
  • I am satisfying your hunger.
  • I am meeting your every need.
  • I am healing you form your pain.
  • I am hearing all of your concerns.
  • I am awakening your dreams.
  • I am enlarging your potential.
  • I am multiplying your gifts.
  • I am double portioning your anointing.

The season to advance is now.  The season of expectation is now.  The season of freshness is now.  The season of awakening is now.  The season of miracles is now.  The season of revival is now.

The lost are coming home in this season.  The sick are being healed in this season.  The broken hearted are being made whole in this season.  The divided ones are being mended in this season.  The blind will see, the deaf will hear – both physically and spiritually.

My hand is upon you, My children.”

Be an Epaphras

“One who is always laboring fervently for others in prayers that they may stand perfect in all the will of God.” (See Colossians 3:12)

The battle is not for another but for the very body of our Beloved.  I am His and He is mine.

Zephaniah 3 New International Version (NIV)


3 Woe to the city of oppressors,
    rebellious and defiled!
2 She obeys no one,
    she accepts no correction.
She does not trust in the Lord,
    she does not draw near to her God.
3 Her officials within her
    are roaring lions;
her rulers are evening wolves,
    who leave nothing for the morning.
4 Her prophets are unprincipled;
    they are treacherous people.
Her priests profane the sanctuary
    and do violence to the law.
5 The Lord within her is righteous;
    he does no wrong.
Morning by morning he dispenses his justice,
    and every new day he does not fail,
    yet the unrighteous know no shame.

Jerusalem Remains Unrepentant

6 “I have destroyed nations;
    their strongholds are demolished.
I have left their streets deserted,
    with no one passing through.
Their cities are laid waste;
    they are deserted and empty.
7 Of Jerusalem I thought,
    ‘Surely you will fear me
    and accept correction!’
Then her place of refuge[a] would not be destroyed,
    nor all my punishments come upon[b] her.
But they were still eager
    to act corruptly in all they did.
8 Therefore wait for me,”
    declares the Lord,
    “for the day I will stand up to testify.[c]
I have decided to assemble the nations,
    to gather the kingdoms
and to pour out my wrath on them—
    all my fierce anger.
The whole world will be consumed
    by the fire of my jealous anger.

Restoration of Israel’s Remnant

9 “Then I will purify the lips of the peoples,
    that all of them may call on the name of the Lord
    and serve him shoulder to shoulder.
10 From beyond the rivers of Cush[d]
    my worshipers, my scattered people,
    will bring me offerings.
11 On that day you, Jerusalem, will not be put to shame
    for all the wrongs you have done to me,
because I will remove from you
    your arrogant boasters.
Never again will you be haughty
    on my holy hill.
12 But I will leave within you
    the meek and humble.
The remnant of Israel
    will trust in the name of the Lord.
13 They will do no wrong;
    they will tell no lies.
A deceitful tongue
    will not be found in their mouths.
They will eat and lie down
    and no one will make them afraid.

14 Sing, Daughter Zion;
    shout aloud, Israel!
Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,
    Daughter Jerusalem!
15 The Lord has taken away your punishment,
    he has turned back your enemy.
The Lord, the King of Israel, is with you;
    never again will you fear any harm.
16 On that day
    they will say to Jerusalem,
“Do not fear, Zion;
    do not let your hands hang limp.
17 The Lord your God is with you,
    the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
    in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
    but will rejoice over you with singing.”

18 “I will remove from you
    all who mourn over the loss of your appointed festivals,
    which is a burden and reproach for you.
19 At that time I will deal
    with all who oppressed you.
I will rescue the lame;
    I will gather the exiles.
I will give them praise and honor
    in every land where they have suffered shame.
20 At that time I will gather you;
    at that time I will bring you home.
I will give you honor and praise
    among all the peoples of the earth
when I restore your fortunes[e]
    before your very eyes,”
says the Lord.

Restoring and Refreshing

I am restoring you to that first love that you had for Me.  Just as the rain waters the flowers, I am watering you.  Can you feel the refreshing rain?

My Son-shine will be warming and restoring you.  Reach up and enjoy!  Remember, I take care of the birds of the air and clothe the lilies of the field.  Rest!  I will hold you and calm all your fear.  Let My rain fall on you and give you peace.

Zechariah 4 New International Version (NIV)

The Gold Lampstand and the Two Olive Trees

4 Then the angel who talked with me returned and woke me up, like someone awakened from sleep. 2 He asked me, “What do you see?”

I answered, “I see a solid gold lampstand with a bowl at the top and seven lamps on it, with seven channels to the lamps. 3 Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.”

4 I asked the angel who talked with me, “What are these, my lord?”

5 He answered, “Do you not know what these are?”

“No, my lord,” I replied.

6 So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.

7 “What are you, mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of ‘God bless it! God bless it!’”

8 Then the word of the Lord came to me: 9 “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it.Then you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me to you.

10 “Who dares despise the day of small things, since the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth will rejoice when they see the chosen capstone[a] in the hand of Zerubbabel?”

11 Then I asked the angel, “What are these two olive trees on the right and the left of the lampstand?”

12 Again I asked him, “What are these two olive branches beside the two gold pipes that pour out golden oil?”

13 He replied, “Do you not know what these are?”

“No, my lord,” I said.

14 So he said, “These are the two who are anointed to[b] serve the Lord of all the earth.”
