Paul Keith & Wanda Davis, Shawn Bolz, & JoAnn McFatter

Periodically it is our desire to articulate prophetic “bullets” that we have shared that seem to be emphasized during the present season. We are currently in a climate of heightened spiritual activity with many signs and wonders. The signs are amazing and appreciated but they always point to the Word and the revelation of the Lord that we are to embrace.

The following is a brief outline of some of those areas of emphasis.

Knowing the Lord as Friend

We are presently living in a season that will emphasize the intimate relationship afforded to those who know the Lord as “friend”. These will be disciples who are partakers of His divine nature. It is through His Holy character that divine power is granted to us that provides everything we need pertaining to life and Godliness.

The scriptures point out we have received His precious and magnificent promises by which we become partakers of His divine nature and escape the corruption of this world and its lusts –

Seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and Godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent
promises, in order that by them you might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust — 2 Peter 1:3-4

A friend is someone who is a close companion or comrade; those having a reciprocal relationship or mutual exchange one with another. Exodus 33:11 states the Lord spoke to Moses face to face as a friend speaks to a friend.

A friend is also one the Lord loves and can trust. I Corinthians 4:1-2 calls us not only to be stewards of the mysteries and power of God, but to also be trustworthy stewards. The Lord must be able to trust His friends with His power and this divine message that is going to be delivered to the people.

Those who are mature and virtuous will perceive this to be a season of visitation and camaraderie with the Lord. The friend of the bride-groom is one who assists in the planning and arranging of the soon coming marriage.

A Season of RESTORATION

The friends of Christ will begin to restore that which has been stolen from the church.

Return to the stronghold, O prisoners who have the hope; this very day I am declaring that I will restore double to you. For I will bend Judah as My bow, I will fill the bow with Ephraim. And I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece; and I will make
you like a warrior’s sword — Zechariah 9:12-13

The Lord is even going to begin to restore that which has been stolen from individuals. Past relationships that the devil has destroyed will begin to be reconciled. Associations destroyed by rumors, gossip, and propaganda will be supernaturally mended by the Lord during this
season of the Spirit.

The restorer of the breach will recondition us with the Spirit of Truth and a new wall of protection will be constructed to surround the true church. The Lord is the restorer of the breach and the repairer of the broken walls…He is the repairer of former streets and dwellings and the One who un-stops old wells.

And those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; you will raise up the age old foundations; and you will be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of the streets in which to dwell. Isaiah 58:12

The Lord is indicating that it is His desire to restore and renew the breach between Heaven and earth through His church. We will likewise begin to find those of our brethren who have fallen and begin to rejuvenate them into a new walk with Christ.

Today if you Hear His Voice

The Lord is preparing to speak and the voice of God is about to be heralded. Those who hear His Voice are warned not to harden their hearts as was done in the day of provocation.

Come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. Today, if you would hear His voice,Do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah, as in the day of Massah in the wilderness; “When your fathers tested me, they tried me, though they had seen My work. For forty years I loathed {that} generation, and said they are a people who err in their heart, and they do not know My ways. Therefore I swore in My anger, truly they shall not enter into My rest.” Ps 95:6-11

This nation saw the power and heard the voice of God in a mighty way during the late 40’s and early 60’s. The Lord spoke to this nation calling her to reject manmade teachings and traditions that denied the leadership of the Holy Spirit.

It has now been fifty years since that door of opportunity was offered. Now He is giving us Zechariah 1:4 and Psalms 95:8-9 as a double witness declaring, today if you hear His voice do not harden your heart as was done in the prior generation. We are back at Kadesh-Barnea and another chance to get it right.

Do not be like your fathers, to whom the former prophets proclaimed, saying, “Thus says the LORD of hosts, “Return now from your evil ways and from your evil deeds.”‘But they did not listen or give heed to Me,” declares the LORD— Zechariah 1:4

This is the covenant that the Lord will make with us during these days. He will put His law in our hearts and will write His word upon our minds and our sins and lawless deeds He will remember no longer. (Hebrews 10:16)

The Anointed Priesthood

Ezekiel 44 outlines a form of priesthood who remained loyal to God during times of apostasy. As a result, a wonderful privilege was granted to them. The Zadok priests were allowed to enter the Lord’s presence and minister to Him. From that place they emerged with the discernment and anointing to separate the precious from the profane and the clean from the unclean.

These priests will be like those found in Malachi 2:6-7. True instruction will be in their mouth and unrighteousness will not be found on their lips. They will turn many back from iniquity and will preserve true spiritual knowledge. Instruction will resound from their mouth for they will be the messengers of the Lord.

Overcoming Ambition, Competition and Division

Ambition is a spirit of strife and selfishness condemned by the apostle Paul in II Corinthians 12:20. This type behavior is alien to the Spirit of Christ and inappropriate for Christian believers. Where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing…But the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace – James 3:16-18.

For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. 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.

The apostle Paul identified the spirit of competition and jealousy among the Corinthian believers and called it fleshly immaturity and destructive to growth in Christ — (I Corinthians 3:3). He reminded them that no foundation is laid but that which is Christ Jesus and each man’s work should build upon that foundation by the Holy Spirit. Fleshly thoughts and motives result only in division.

Division is simply defined as dissension or schisms and is normally the result of strife and selfish ambition. The Lord calls for agreement without divisions among us so that we can be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment – (I Corinthians1:10).

The Lord is saying our main enemies are ambition and division and He is going to anoint His leaders to pull down these strongholds producing the reality of Psalm 133.

The Bible declares that where brethren dwell together in unity, there the Lord will command the blessings and it will be as the anointing oil poured upon Aaron’s head.

The Key of Breakthrough
by Shawn Bolz

Micah 2:13 One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their king will pass through before them, the LORD at their head.

I have been traveling for well over a decade and I have never seen the remnant body of Christ in such a place of transition. I don’t want to say it is the same for everyone but one thing is true: We are not going to make it into the new place that God desires unless He moves us forward. HE has to break open the way into the new thing that He is calling us to.

Those who have read Paul Keith and Bob Jones report about the Angel of Breakthrough have been desperate to enter into this very thing. We are longing to see God do what He has said He would do. Many of us have such radical promises that God has declared to us that we couldn’t accomplish them even if we tried. One thing is true for all of us who are divinely dangling in this place of transition between what was and what is to come: human effort can not accomplish heavens goals.

The Key Was the Angel of Break Through

I had a spiritual experience and in the experience I saw a key coming down from heaven. It wasn’t like any key I had ever seen before. It was living and breathing, it had light shining from it and it was an angelic being.
I was in awe of what I was seeing and I watched as the angel started to shoot through the earth unlocking thousands of doors in one sweep. When the doors were unlocked, it would go back into the heavens and then dive back down opening up thousands of more doors.

The Lord asked “What are you seeing Shawn?”

I said “I see an angel that looks like a key opening doors.”

The voice from heaven was Jesus himself, and He spoke; “This is My very angel that is coming to break open the way for My church to enter into My covenant promises. The angel will come so quickly that people will feel as though they were transported into My purpose. Behold I send forth My angel on the earth for My purpose shall
be released. People will blink their eyes and when they open they will be in their new purposes, the break through will have happened.”

I immediately thought of Revelations 22:16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to give you[a] this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the Bright Morning Star.”

I cannot begin to describe how I felt. Jesus Himself is sending His own angel, the angel that breaks through to open up the doors of heaven in this season for us to enter into Kingdom purposes.

The key came down and was superimposed over me, and I knew I had been overshadowed by the breakthrough of heaven just as Mary was when she was about to give birth to Jesus.

Then I saw a hand holding a map. It was a woman dressed as a bride and she was burning the map. I heard the voice of the bride singing and this was her song:

“I long to go where only you can bring me, Places where there are no maps pointing the way but the stars of heaven will bring me there just as in the days of old, the heavens will tell us how to get there.”

I believe that the key has been released and is being released. There are going to be so many reports of the break-through in the next few months. Some of the first break-through will be radical signs of the substance of eternity manifesting on the earth. There will even be signs in the heavens that will be unpredicted over the next year.

I also believe this break-through is going to take people out of a narrow church focus and put them into a Kingdom focus, where it’s the whole church of Christ receiving, not just a segment.

This experience happened two weeks ago and the meetings I have been going to from that time on have been having more miracles, more signs from heaven and more co operation with His purpose then I have experienced before. I have been getting reports of others that are seeing the break through of heaven as well. There will even
be signs in the heavens that will be unpredicted over the next year.

While in Montana I was at a store and read a greeting card that was a prophetic word from a speech by J.F.K. It said “Dream of things that never were.” That is what this breakthrough releases; the ability to enter into things that are unimagined because they are eternal.
It is not just a wave of a move of God that is coming or angels of glory that are being released. This is the angel of Jesus Himself, preparing His church to enter into the Kingdom.

This is the key to the breakthrough that is coming. It’s not about revival it’s about a generation inheriting the promises so they can bring Jesus His reward. This is not something that will begin and end here on earth.
This is an outpouring and release of glory that will not end until eternity.

I want to encourage as many of you who read this, to read reports, listen to events where this is happening, visit places that are experiencing break-through because the angel was coming to those who were already preparing themselves in faith for what was to come.

I also want to personally re-invite you to come to our event in July. All that we know is that God is going to come and release some measure of this break -through there, and if you are feeling you should come but are not completely sure, come anyway! Something is going to happen that we have never seen before.

The Divine Exchange Between Heaven and Earth, pt 1

by JoAnn McFatter

There is at all times a sound being released from earth to heaven as well as from heaven to earth – a divine exchange, so to speak. In the unseen realm, it is in the form of energy patterns, waves, particles and though the vast majority of it is not heard with our natural ear, it is sensed by us because we are part of this existence. What is coming from our end is “heard” by God, and I believe that He has an ever flowing response back to us that we need to be aware of and “tune into” with our spirit man so as to tap into that constant communion we can have with Him. We often refer to it, as does Scripture, as “spirit to spirit, deep to deep”.
In John 17, Jesus prays concerning our oneness with Him, “…that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me.” Regardless of whether or not we are conscious of it, without that constant exchange this world as we know it would not even exist… “in Him all things consist.”

When God set up this whole existence of ours, He put it all in motion with the release of His sound, His Word, “Let there be Light.”

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend
[overcome] it. John 1:1-5.

Science is only just now catching up with the Word, but what they are discovering these days, especially in the quantum world of physics, is absolutely amazing as it pertains to scripture.

He released His sound, His Word out of Eternity and by It all of this that we experience and all that has been experienced in all of history, along with what is to come is held together by It. Science calls it the zero energy point which is at the very center of the smallest particle. It is what keeps everything from collapsing all around us. Jesus is the fleshly Manifestation of that Word – He IS the Word.

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. Colossians 1:15-17

It is all held together by Him, again, “…and in Him all things consist”. I had to look up that word “consist.” I’ve heard this passage misquoted many times – I’VE misquoted this passage myself because of the way I’ve heard it said so often as “all things exist,” rather than “consist.” So I looked up the word consist because Holy Spirit used that word specifically and the misquote drew my attention to it. The word consist means to be made up or composed, to be comprised or contained, to exist together or be capable of existing together. I found that very interesting – all of this is made capable of existing together only in Him.

I wanted to lay a scriptural foundation for some of what I wanted to say so that we don’t get tripped up by some of the terminology I need to use to help unravel a bit of the mystery of this divine exchange of sound between heaven and earth. This is in order to move into a focus on the coming sounds of worship being released to Heaven by way of intercession, hope, holy anticipation, faith, good works, etc., as well as the sounds of response from heaven to earth in the way of signs and wonders, manifestations, angelic participation, revelation being released, etc. that are coming our way – the sounds of Heaven invading earth. There is a sound of BREAKTHROUGH being released from Heaven in this hour that I believe can even be activated by our sounds of worship mixed with the sound of faith here on the earth. Our agreement with Heaven’s agenda will truly affect the outcome.

It may be strange to hear the phrase, “the sound of faith” or “the sound of good works,” but energy that is released from these things really does have a sound. Worship is a sound, whether it be audible or inaudible to our natural ear, flowing from us to the Father. When we direct our hearts, our intent toward Him, even when we don’t verbalize it, there are waves and/or vibrations that are released into the atmosphere that He sees, smells, hears, tastes – that He receives unto Himself. Obviously, Scripture uses metaphor to describe the exchange between God and His creation – “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” Our prayers are as an incense unto Him and He “fills His nostrils” with it. There are so many examples. But if you were to really look at what is happening at a subatomic level, that unseen realm, our words and sounds are releasing energy into the atmosphere that everything around us is affected by.

I am reminded of something Neville Johnson (a father to the body of Christ in matters of the Spirit) shared in a teaching session. He went through a period of time, I believe several months, where the Lord caused him to see and smell the spirit realm – particularly, the realm of emotions. He actually saw the colors and smelled the fragrance that was released from people as they entertained emotions. If a person was angry he saw red coming from them with a foul scent accompanying it. Jealousy in a person released a greenish grey color, again with a particular foul smell. The most fowl scent of all came with self-pity. Demons would see and smell it and flock to the person to fuel the emotion. It worked as well on the flip side of that. Positive emotions released particular colors and pleasant fragrances, causing angels to come. My point is that we see, hear and sense only in part what is taking place in the unseen
realm. Actually, Neville begged God to “turn it off” because it was driving him crazy to be constantly aware of all of this. God is constantly aware of all of this, and even more, in all of creation at all times.

I remember John Paul Jackson relaying an experience he had in heaven during a visitation. He said every fiber of his being was illuminated as if it were alive and he was conscious of how everything in his body was connected – even things science and the medical field are not yet aware of. In his thoughts he knew that God was that aware of every aspect of creation at all times – every blade of grass, every particle of every atom, as well as every creature, every human on the earth – not to mention the things of heaven. What we say and what we do does not go unnoticed by God. Every intent of our heart, every action, every word, every song, it’s all “breathed in,” so to speak, by God. John Paul went on to say that when a word was released in heaven, with it came music, fragrance, a color of light and a numerical equation. I was undone by that statement, as I had been studying physics, light, sound, color, etc. for a couple of years at that point and wasn’t even sure why. I would go to the book store, stand in front of the physics/science section and throw my arms up to God, saying “What !?!? What am I doing here?!” Then a couple of titles would catch my eye and I would
buy the books and go home and try to read them. Well, when John Paul mentioned the numerical equation with each word I just started sobbing. That’s what physics is all about – mathematical equations! My heart was so relieved, thinking, “This is You, God. You really are behind this!” Many of you have that same sigh of
relief, “I’m not going crazy after all and I am hearing God on all of this.” I can’t tell you how many people have said the same thing to me in the last few years – God is up to something! Something’s up in the Spirit and it’s a spirit to spirit understanding that He is giving us in this hour. Things have escalated drastically and there is a divine acceleration going on. I liken it to an earthquake. If you were to say that the end of time as we know it is the epicenter of the quake, then the closer we get to it the stronger and faster the ripples will be that pull us toward it. God is going to be releasing understanding at a greater pace. We are going to be much more acclimated to the unseen realm and I believe we will be more able to sense and discern what is happening there as a result of our actions and our words. We will see and hear more clearly His response and heaven’s response, as we become more skilled in the ways of the spirit and the unseen realm.

I am setting the stage to move into some explanation of just how our words, our actions, our worship affect the unseen realm. The church is finally exploring that which was meant for us as believers from the beginning of time. We lost the understanding of His ways as we trusted more and more in the thoughts and ways of man….the opinions and traditional way of thinking in Greek-based philosophy.

We need to begin to pray and ask for the fullness of God to be released in our spirits, that we might be enlightened to the way He meant for us to walk with Him even on this earth. He said He would have those who worship Him in spirit and in truth.

There really is something on the horizon in the not so very distant distance. Worship will be key in releasing much of this. It will be used to change the atmosphere for the Light to penetrate the darkness “and the darkness will not comprehend [overcome] it.” As He is lifted up He will draw all men unto Him. God is unlocking mysteries and allowing us to peer into things we’ve not understood until now. In part 2 of this article I want to go into the nature of sound and how our words, our intent of heart, impacts the atmosphere. The Lord set it all up in the very beginning with the release of the “let there be light” and we are just beginning to catch a glimpse of what that is.

There is a line in a song that He gave me that goes, “Breaking the sound barrier, breaking the barrier of sound between heaven and the ground.” We’ve got to get in touch with the power of our words and, yes, even the intent of our hearts. As we align ourselves with the “sound of heaven” these things will begin to manifest on the earth.
