Time of Leadership

11/19/2014

In April of this year I received a visitation and a word that I was not allowed to speak but to a few.   Within that word was a confirmation of what is being released already in the earth much to the chagrin that are opposed the working of Jesus Christ in this earth.

It is without doubt that Christianity has come under intense persecution throughout the world especially in places where Islam holds power.   We see the constant beheading of Christians in Iraq and in Syria by Muslim Jihadists.   We even see workers now in Tulsa Oklahoma the mecca of the Faith Movement where Oral Roberts University is located being behead by a knife wielding assailant shouting Muslim slogans.   In New Jersey we saw on the local news of two Coptic Christians kidnapped and beheaded as well as their hands cut off by an Egyptian Muslim.

In Nigeria we see Christian villages being destroyed and the women or girls kidnapped and sold as sex slaves or made to convert to Islam and to be a wife to a Muslim.

In England a British soldier was brutally murdered with a meat cleaver in the hands of a Muslim who then stopped to explain to someone with a cell phone camera why as a Muslim he had to do it.

In the USA the title Christian is almost looked upon as a foul word with a description of “hatred” attached by those that hate Christianity.  They go out of their way to offend or to take offense in an effort to destroy Christianity in this nation.    Ironically those that claim that Tolerance is needed are most often the ones that seem to have zero tolerance of anything that doesn’t agree with them.

Hatred, anger and intimidation through threats of violence, or lawsuits are designed to minimize and eliminate anything that is remotely associated with Jesus Christ or Christianity.  But Jesus told us that the world would hate us because it hated him first.  Darkness is merely the absence of light and the forces of the dark side are moving heaven and earth to extinguish the light of Christ.

LEADERSHIP

Anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear knows what is coming, what is indeed already afoot.  You would have to be completely incapacitated not to see and understand what is happening.  As this time increases and darkness seems to be gaining a foothold understand that darkness is in itself a shadow or an absence of light and leadership.  But God has already thought of this, already planned for it and already put those in place to deal with the encroachment.

In April of this year I was informed by visitation that Father God would begin to release power and authority to those that He is raising up in leadership for this time.  Those that walk in the administration of leadership like Moses would begin to see the authority and abilities that Moses had manifest in their own lives.   Those that walk in the office of prophet like Elijah would also see an increase in their power and authority in their lives as well.

I shared this visitation with certain individuals within ministry and evangelism and they indeed had already begun to notice the increase within their own ministries.  God is setting up the next level of leaders for what is here and still coming.

Leadership is now needed and it needs to be seen in those of spiritual maturity walking in spiritual authority without pride and without the desire for self promotion.   These leaders are and will be convicted in their hearts and minds of the grace and righteousness of Jesus in their own lives.  They will stand in the coming days and be a force of reckoning just like Moses and Elijah and there are many of them that have been called just for this time and just for this purpose.  The most powerful will be those that know God, love God, have relationship and fellowship with God as stated in the book of Daniel 11:32  And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.  

The above scripture reminds me of the woman that stood in the National Cathedral during the Muslim only prayer and declared that Jesus Christ was the Son of God and the only way to the Father.      Here was a woman in a personal situation of difficulty that God used to bring forth a message that caught national attention.  God called, she Answered!  This is Leadership!

If God has called you out and matured you and given you the ability and the unction of either Moses or Elijah take heart, take hope, take charge and stand tall professing the word of the Lord.  By decreeing through your mouth the word of the Lord you will alter landscapes, atmospheres and powers.   For God told the Israelites in Numbers 14:28  Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the Lord, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you.

Its time for God’s leaders to stand up for the truth and speak the words in the ears of the people and the people to speak the words into the ear of God.  By so doing you will see the move of God like you have never seen before.  This is not the time to shrink back but to stand firm, to lead.

TIME

This is the time, the place and the season.   God has set all in order for his people, his sons and daughters to stand in the gap. To declare, to decree and to do so in the proper context to alter the course of not only nations but the atmosphere.    There is no better time than now.  There is no other time than now.  God is releasing his power and his glory in this time and it will build as the days ahead come this way.  If it’s wrong then stand against it.  If it’s right then stand in agreement.    Do all things according to the word of God for he set the times and the seasons.

LIGHT

Remember this; darkness is dispelled by light and the action of light.  Understand your authority to speak out against lies, deceptions, fraud, deceit and the works of the enemy. Declare that light shall penetrate the darkness.  That things done in the dark shall be exposed to the light.  Call for exposure, for justice and for proper judgment.  Command it into the atmosphere and see it happen. Your words have power and what you speak you set in motion, good, bad, or indifferent whether it’ in your personal life, your family and by extension your city and nation.

Remember, God is releasing his power to those He has called for this time.  It has already begun.

 

Joseph.

 

 

 

Dig Your Ditches

Dig Your Ditches

Joseph Jamison March 5, 2014

The first 7 months of this year are an open door to everything you have been given to accomplish.  No matter where you might be in the status of a commission or ministry or business or activity this is the open door to accomplish it.   Start right where you are right now.

Many of us have a seed planted in our hearts or minds toward what we feel we should do, whether it’s a humanitarian project, a Kingdom project, a business, or a goal and we may have put it on hold until we feel we have enough funding, or enough support or enough of this or that before we can do anymore than just think about it.    Start with what you have and move forward with it.   If you haven’t put a plan forth start with that.  If you have a plan and limited funds start there.   Don’t borrow money to start but start with what you have and God will move forward on your behalf.  The longer you put things off for this reason or that reason the less you will get accomplished.

A couple years ago I gave a word to someone about dig your ditches and God will fill them.  It was in reference to the story of Jehoshaphat King of Judah and Jehoram the son Ahab who was King of Israel in an allegiance along with the King of Edom against Moab who had rebelled against paying tribute to Israel after Ahab’s death.  These 3 kings found themselves in a valley with no water for them, their army or their animals.  Jehoshaphat called for a prophet and Elisha came and declared to them that because of Jehoshaphat he would seek the lord for them and their quest.  God told them through the prophet Elisha to “Make this valley full of ditches”.  In the process they neither saw wind nor rain but in the morning the ditches were full of water for the men and beasts.  2 Kings 3:16-18  And God sanctioned their actions against Moab and provided for them even though they would not physically see how it would be done. In fact, God actually used the water in the ditches to look like blood and to draw in the Moabites and make them easy to overcome.

This is the season we are in.  So many of us can’t seem to see how God will help or supply us but if we put our hand to what we have been given and step out even in the smallest way in faith God will meet us there and supply us with what is needed to fulfill what we have been given.

The three main characters in this biblical story are Jehoram, Jehoshaphat, and Elisha.  They are the only characters in this story that are named and these names are very significant in their meanings so lets take a look at how this works out.

The King of Israel. The King of Judah.  The Prophet Elisha.     We need to look at what all these names imply by their order of recognition within the Hebrew story.

Israel:  God Prevails

Jehoram: Jehovah Is Exalted

Judah: Praise or Praised  ( as in God is praised or Praise God)

Jehoshaphat:  Jehovah Has Judged

Elisha: God Is Salvation

In essence we can read these names to imply the following in our own actions:   “God prevails in every situation and when we exalt Him and praise Him and seek Him, He will judge our situation, our circumstances and our requests and be our salvation.”

Remember that the Kings sought out a prophet to “seek” the counsel of the Lord and in doing so they not only got wise counsel and instruction from the Lord they prevailed and God moved on their behalf.  This means we are to seek God personally for we have direct contact with the Lord and no longer need a prophet to hear from or to interact with God as we can come boldly to the Throne of Grace.

So, if God has planted a seed in your heart for ministry, business, Kingdom projects or anything in any way, seek Him on it, praise Him for it, Exalt Him above everything else in your life and he will easily judge and bring you salvation and success in your quest.

This is the time to grab hold of it and see it through.   The first 7 months of this year are crucial in that it is an open door to success if you will push through what may seem like impossibility to success.  Don’t wait for another day, another year or another window, act on what you have been given wisely and diligently and see how God moves on your behalf.

Blessings on you.

 

 

 

 

Release Is Here

January 5, 2014

Joseph Jamison

Within a matter of just a few days there will be a release and breakthrough for thousands of those that have been patiently waiting on the Lord in prayer, in faith and in confidence.

Those that will see this “suddenly” are those that have been setting their sights on things above and not below.  Col 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on thing on the earth.  v3 For ye are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God.

God is releasing ministries, businesses, projects and people from the restraint that so many have been feeling.  Those that have been patient even in the times when it felt like they were chained to an anchor unable to move forward, that chain is going to be released after the 7th of January 2014.  Wait for that open door.

As everyone knows that have planned and put forward effort the “suddenly” is not really sudden at all, it is a culmination of work, prayer and patience that wins the day.  This is not for those looking to satisfy the flesh or worldly pursuits.  It’s not for those even in ministry that are looking at building a name for themselves or for building a large organization for fame and for conquest.  The Lord is not going to share His Glory with those looking for Glory and Recognition.

This release is for those that have a call for these times; the ones that have been hidden, unappreciated, and unknown.  They are the Moses and Elijah types, the Joseph’s, the John the Baptists, those that God has had hidden until an appointed time.  This is the time and the Release is Here.

Blessings.

 

A Word For the Day

December 29, 2013  Joseph Jamison

Folks, we are walking into a time of great challenge. I urge, no, I beg of you each and every one, take the time to seek Jesus and everything of God.

There will be many that have great success in the middle of chaos in 2014 but also there are going to be monumental events that will usher in a change the likes of which only a few of us have seen and it will take a great deal of personal conviction and faith to walk through the next few years. There will be great reward and great suffering alike. Some will endure, others will give up and take the easy way that will lead to destruction.

To my friends that haven’t really wanted anything to do with church or Christianity I implore you, it doesn’t matter what the church looks like or acts like, all can be obtuse at times, please seek a relationship with Jesus. Ask him to make himself known to you, ask to interact with him, to learn about him and be like him. He is not weak, He is not impossible to reach, and He is real.

I fear for many and I am reminded that I need to be more diligent and less concerned with life in general because we are at the threshold that many have seen to be way off when in fact it is right now upon us. Please, seek the Lord while he yet can be found. He came and died for each of us, accepting him washes you clean and guarantees a place of peace at our passing. Heaven is real, Jesus, the Father, The Holy Spirit is real and it doesn’t have to look like what might turn you off. Relationship is far more than the actions of individuals separately or in a corporate setting.

Time is short. No time to lose in making yourself available to Yeshua. Those who know me personally know that I am mostly a serious no nonsense kind of guy that speaks my mind and tells you exactly what I see, come hell or high water. What you see is what you get. I’m telling you now, don’t think things are going to continue as always, they aren’t. Please get Right with God, PLEASE, you are going to need him in every way shortly.
