February 2011

Paul Keith & Wanda Davis, & JoAnn McFatter

Greetings friends,

Already 2011 is proving to be a pivotal year. Wanda and I had a very fruitful trip to Ireland and England in January. Chuck Pierce joined us in England and we all felt the level of hunger was quite invigorating along with the receptivity of the messages. God is enlarging our capacity for Him and imparting desperation within the remnant company who are contending for the His manifest presence. The Lord spoke to me in December and said the more people we can mobilize in agreement with this message the quicker will come our promised outpouring.

I will include a few of the revelatory phrases that were shared in those meetings in hopes of imparting a sense of direction for the next 24 months:

1. For many our paths will be redirected.
2. Now is the time for stepping into our future. Gideon paradigm… prophesying
according to our future not our history.
3. Where we are headed is linked with the unknown requiring revelatory insight.
4. Watch for open heavens in 2011.
5. Anointed new songs for breaking old cycles.
6. The heavens are changing and shifting.
7. Now is the time to touch Him and feel His touch.
8. Now is a grace to be healed and made whole for the season ahead.
9. God will mend storehouses to bring in new supply… new troops.
10. Heaven and earth are realigning through the Saints.
11. The Lord is recovering a second time the remnant of His people… there is
about to be a new impartation of the revivalist anointing from the 50s.
12. All that we do must be rooted and grounded in love.
13. We will lift up a standard in this day and our tribe will be drawn to the
standard. We will know our tribe by common spiritual DNA.
14. Now is a season to plunder the enemy camp. Isaiah 11:14.
15. The lion-like nature of God is our inheritance; His valor, courage and
boldness.
16. A time for removal of limitations and ceilings.
17. We must know and recognize our landmark moments
18. All that we do must be done from a posture of victory.
19. Deliver us from thinking processes that limit the future.
20. Now is a time to arise and shine… dawning of a new day.

Obviously, much elaboration could be added to each of these phrases to give its full meaning. However, I thought it might be fruitful just to provide these prophetic icons in order to give a sense of expectancy and insight to position us to move forward. We anticipate addressing each of these and more at our “Sons, Taught of the Lord” conference in Tucson.

The time has come for the mature sons of the Kingdom to appropriate spiritual inheritance as the conflict between light and darkness escalates. I am continuing to hear the great Moravian prayer resonating in the Spirit, “May the Lamb that was slain receive the full reward of His sufferings.”

Richest blessings of favor and grace,

Paul Keith & Wanda Davis and the WhiteDove Team

Lovingkindness and Truth to Awaken His Glory

The desert is a place of visitation and impartation to be established in lovingkindness and truth. Psalms 57:7-11 states:

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises! Awake, my glory! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.
I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. For your lovingkindness is great to the heavens and your truth to the clouds. Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth.

Our present opportunity is to embrace this final segment of our desert experience to be fully prepared for what is to come. The Shekinah glory descended upon the Tent of Meetings and Moses was granted the privilege of meeting with God face-to-face for an extended period of time. Although Israel was not yet in the Promised Land they remained in the desert in order to prepare them to occupy the land of promise. So shall it be in this day. This coming season will be a time of visitation and tokens of God’s glory manifested among the righteous.

The righteous will bear the glory; there will be tokens of God’s glory resting upon a body of people that will illuminate them to shine like the sun in the Kingdom of our Father.

Realms of Glory

Corporate meetings will experience realms of glory on a level we have not yet experienced in this generation.

We are entering the season of human history prophesied by Isaiah when he foretold there would be a Heavenly brightness shining upon the righteous in the midst of great darkness. It is by the Spirit of Truth that we will be illuminated as we share in the mysteries of the Kingdom reserved for this hour. Isaiah 60:1-3 declared:

Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the LORD will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.

There is a “weighty” presence or Glory that the Lord intends to place upon His people during these last days as a testimony to the nations of His redemptive virtue. It is truly amazing that sinners saved by grace can be endowed with this commission and responsibility. As Daniel prophesied, “many will be purged, purified, and refined… and those who have insight will understand.” (Daniel 12:10)

The understanding this company possesses will be the mystery of “Christ in us, the hope of Glory.” It is only through this refining process that we are capable of manifesting His Glory in the earth without it destroying us. That is the importance of prophetic material like this one. If we have the understanding that the process we have been in is for preparation then it gives us the hope of our calling. Without that understanding we would be prone to discouragement, hopelessness and feelings of disqualification.

Another purpose for highlighting this reality is to equip the prayer and intercessory ministries with a key to unlocking this 21st century provision. It will be through prayer, praise, and prophetic proclamation that we will contend for this reality. It will not be accomplished through human soulish striving but by a revelation of the Spirit and the activation of our faith to speak in agreement with God’s plans. As recorded in Job 22:26-28:

For then you will delight in the Almighty and lift up your face to God. You will pray to Him, and He will hear you; and you will pay your vows. You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways.

The end result of this expression of God’s Glory will be a notable harvest of souls beyond anything we have presently experienced in modern Church history. It will not only be a message to our nation but also the nations of the earth; nor will it be administered or controlled by human agency, but by the leadership of the Holy Spirit.

The Glory Separates

Korah’s rebellion was judged by God’s glory. Numbers 16:19?21 outlines that:

Korah assembled all the congregation against them at the doorway of the tent of meeting. And the glory of the LORD appeared to all the congregation. Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, “Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them instantly.”

God’s “priests” are to help separate truth from leaven, the precious from the profane; this must be a Holy Priesthood who have dined at the Lord’s table. Only from this place are we able to separate the clean from the unclean. In the same way that Korah’s rebellion was judged by God’s glory, so also will the seeds of rebellion be separated from within us as individuals and a corporate body!

The stress and turmoil in the world will continually increase as this present age reaches its completion and the Lord’s Kingdom is prepared to be revealed. The confrontation between light and darkness will also escalate as evil will become greater. Likewise, the children of light must respond to offer hope and salvation through the Lord’s redemptive work.

I recently saw this escalation in a revelatory encounter. In it I saw a door being opened from the bowels of hell releasing a horde of evil spirits of a profound nature. I was actually able to recognize the characteristics of some of them. One had an appearance like Adolf Hitler and another like Joseph Stalin. I believe these represented evil spirits that functioned through these historical tyrants.

I watched as these evil spirits began to manifest themselves before people and train the individuals to walk in realms of darkness and evil never before seen in our generation. It was as if individuals were being identified and equipped to carry “mantles” of darkness as foretold by ancient prophets concerning the latter days.

While this was taking place I heard an audible voice say, “The children of Light must respond in like fashion.” With that admonition, I saw angels descending from Heaven that were specially prepared for the end-time confrontation. They too were commissioned to meet with individuals through angelic visitations in order to train the people to walk in mantles of revelation and power.

The Lord’s Kingdom that is characterized with righteousness, peace, and joy will become more pronounced within an overcoming body of believers while darkness runs a parallel course of acceleration. While we are in this world we are admonished not to be a part of this world’s spirit. Light shines brightest during times of exceeding darkness!

Those who have yielded themselves to the work of God’s spirit will be developed in righteousness and:

Will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear! — Matthew 13:43

The last few hundred years of Church history has seen numerous expressions of spiritual “breakthrough” that changed every following generation. God used Martin Luther with a breakthrough anointing to re-establish the reality that the just shall live by faith.

Following Luther, John Wesley and others advanced further with the message of sanctification and a breakthrough anointing that altered present understanding of the Christian life. We then experienced another breakthrough during the days of William J. Seymour and the Azusa Street outpouring; following that came yet another during the days of William Branham and the Latter Rain outpouring.

Presently, we stand on the brink of the most significant breakthrough of all leading to the manifestation of a body of believers who function as sons and daughters of God and do the works that He did. This will be the only antidote for the darkness and evil that will permeate the coming years. Our current admonition is to embrace our opportunity for preparation and qualification for this responsibility.

This generation will see the greatest demonstration of grace ever experienced, and every indication points to its imminent reality. This generation will come forth with shouts of “grace-grace.”

Vision for the Future

The Bible stresses that mankind will perish when there is a lack of true spiritual knowledge, and without a vision the people are unrestrained and without order. Therefore, the spirit of revelation is a prerequisite to cooperate with God in this last day functioning of His plans.

To each of us is given a measure of faith; therefore it requires spiritual vision for us to appropriate our faith towards the things that are of lasting spiritual value. The Lord is granting to us in this season fresh deposits of His revelatory anointing to provide clarity, insight and the true knowledge of Him. This will begin to sanctify us for the coming battle.

Recently I heard the Holy Spirit say, “You can see things as they appear or you can see them as they really are.” This admonition is challenging us to begin to see things from Heavens perspective; that was the experience granted Gehazi when Elisha prayed for his eyes to be opened. When the revelatory anointing was granted, Elisha’s servant saw the mountains filled with Heaven’s host that greatly outnumbered the enemy. Suddenly his perspective changed from fear to faith because of spiritual vision and seeing things from God’s point of view.

Leaders will become increasingly aware of this opportunity and find great grace to train and equip a body of people to live in Heaven’s revelatory realm. This also will go hand-in-hand with the functioning of the panel of judges who are being delegated to separate true prophetic utterance from the false.

There is an “occupying” anointing that is being distributed among us. It is one thing to experience breakthrough but altogether another to occupy where the enemy has been displaced. We must be prepared and mobilized with a plan of occupation when we address various cities and regions. We are given the authority and dominion to occupy the areas for which we have spiritual revelation. Jesus said:

When the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and not finding any, it says, “I will return to my house from which I came. And when it comes, it finds it swept and put in order. Then it goes and takes {along} seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first — Luke 11:24-26

This season highlights the importance of formalizing a plan of occupation by mobilizing the body of Christ. Great grace will be given in this next season for training and equipping leaders who are not afraid to conquer and occupy the land for which they are given spiritual vision.

It is a sad reality to discover that many of the places that once experienced great spiritual victory have now become havens of darkness. Even so, our grace for this season is to take back that ground and remind the Lord of His promise stating:

I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, my great army which I sent among you. — Joel 2:25

Continued Extremes

Extreme weather patterns will continue in the days ahead in heavenly places, on the earth, and under the earth. It will be contrasting extremes as a prophetic indication of the era in which we live. Volcanoes, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and droughts will be taking place in various regions simultaneously. While one area is experiencing a drought another will be in during floods.

One of the primary areas for which we must be mobilized deals with our need to take authority over these extremes. The earth has been delegated into the hands of mankind and the Lord has appropriated His authority through us to articulate His desire. We must learn how to speak to these weather issues from a position of faith and authority in the same fashion the Lord did on the sea of Galilee. Psalms 115:16 declares:

The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S; but the earth He has given to the children of men.

There have been numerous instances in recent years where key leaders have been sent into drought stricken areas in order to call for rain. This trend will continue! This will also be true with spiritual as well as governmental leaders.

Posturing for Victory
An Exhortation for This Season
By Wanda Davis

One of the more pronounced ways in which the Lord speaks to me is through dreams. I am of the belief that very few of the messages given in this manner are for the corporate body of Christ. Most seem to be for personal intercession or insight. However, I feel compelled to share the dream I was given November 23, 2010 on the Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving. I believe the Lord is emphasizing this insight as an encouragement and admonition for this next season.

The dream begins in a conference setting. As I enter the building I can discern that corporate intercession was taking place. Many who have attended conferences can easily imagine this scenario. As I stood there watching what was taking place, I heard a voice saying, “From this time forth you are to pray from a posture of victory proclaiming and declaring in agreement with the Lord, the ‘battle is already won!'”

The voice then continued saying, because He is…. and began to articulate all the names of God revealed in the Scriptures. I could only remember the next-to-last name that was given in the dream that said, “Because He is—I Am.” At that declaration thousands of voices joined in unison shouting, “because Jesus Christ is Lord!”

Needless to say it was an overwhelming and powerful moment. When I awakened I felt undone and stirred by the impact of the booming voices declaring, “Jesus Christ IS Lord!” Since that night I have spiritually processed and contemplated these revelations. I believe it is an exhortation or word of wisdom for this next season of the Spirit that we are entering in 2011.

All of the Lord’s redemptive attributes are resident in His names that we proclaim and declare in agreement with the Spirit. He is the victor and because of what He has done the victory is also ours. Even so, this does not mean we can be in denial concerning circumstances that we face nor assume that the enemy will not oppose us on multiple levels. Moreover, it is quite possible that the reason this has been highlighted is because the level of warfare has increased in this season as the Bible predicts will take place at the end of the age.

Our revelation and admonition is to approach this conflict from a “posture of victory.” This means we cannot approach it from the mindset of intimidation, fear or anxiety. Instead, God’s lion-like nature is given in this season to create valor, courage and an attitude of spiritual victory in Christ Jesus.

Foremost among our enemy’s most successful strategies is to emphasize negativity through circumstances in life and amplify them beyond their reality. Nevertheless, the Lord wants us to view them from His perspective which is true reality. We do this by spending time with Him, intercession, meditation on the Word and the apprehension of His heart. As we join His attitude of victory through the warfare, the demonically imposed stress and anxiety will be alleviated.

One of the ways we can enter into this attitude is by not allowing anything in us to have agreement with the enemy and his accusations. When there is agreement in our heart with the enemy’s words spoken through other people or when he whispers them in our ear, it gives those words power; unbelief, defeat and hopelessness is then allowed to enter our hearts and rob us of our peace and victory in Christ. The Bible teaches us how to discern the Lord’s wisdom from the enemies tainted attitudes. James 3:17-18 tells us:

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

We must not allow our focus to be taken off who the Lord is and His purposes. I believe this attitude will be paramount in catapulting the body of Christ into the faith of the Son of God. According to Galatians 2:20:

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

By understanding this we can reach into the unseen realm and call forth those things that are not through agreement with the Lord. (Romans 4:17) Even though they may have not manifested in our present circumstance we can approach them from a posture and attitude of victory and maintain that mindset through all opposition of the enemy and his schemes.
