"It was C.S. Lewis who, in his unforgettable Screwtape Letters, wrote: "The greatest evil is not done now in those sordid 'dens of rime' that Dickens loved to paint. It is not even done in concentration camps and labor camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voice." 

Well, because these "quiet men" do not "raise their voices," because they sometimes speak in soothing tones of brotherhood and peace, because, like other dictators before them, they're always making "their final territorial demand," some would have us accept them as their word and accommodate ourselves to their aggressive impulses. But if history teaches anything, it teaches that simpleminded appeasement or wishful thinking about our adversaries is folly. It means the betrayal of our past, the squandering of our freedom. 
So, I urge you to speak out against those who would place the United States in a position of military and moral inferiority.

"We the Host people of this Great Nation...stand in the gap for those who are unable or unwilling to forgive, and call upon the Master of Life, to forgive us for harboring un-forgiveness, resentment, hatred, bitterness and rage; We repent of every curse spoken over America by our ancestors and we release the power of forgiveness to bring healing and the peace of Creator God to this Land..."                  (photo by Susan Anton 2016)

The Awakening has begun. 

"Therefore they said to Him"What could we do so that we would do the works of God? Y'shua answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, 
that you would believe in Whom that One sent."                               John 6:28,29

"One thing about the Refiner's Fire: 
the devil cannot stand in it, 
but You can." 

In 2009 I had a waking vision where I saw a captivating and incredibly beautiful figure whirling a sword with a pearl handle in the       s m o k e  that surrounded him. I asked, "Lord is that you?" I heard: "Look again." As I peered, I saw him clearly and it was certainly not the Lord. It was the clearest I have ever seen my enemy. As the vision unfolded I saw Y'shua appear to my right and held out his hand with authority proclaiming, "STOP!" With an inquisitive gesture I asked the Lord why the enemy was so clear, in fact seemed more clear than when I looked upon the Lord?...He replied, "So you can avoid him!" As He said this, F I R E went out before Him and under me. With a clarifying, yet purposeful tone He asked, "What did the fire do to you?" I replied in a mournful yelp, "It burned me Lord, it burned me." Gentleness from His voice smoothed away any pain as He said, "No, it refined you." Then the fire spread out in an accelerated rate under the beast. I inquired, "What did it do to him, Lord?" He replied, "It singed him beyond belief." The devil then disappeared in riffs of smoke.

"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the r i v e r s, they will not overflow you;
When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched,
Nor will the flame burn you." 
Isaiah 43:2

During the last 7 years trials and tribulation has seemed common place for many. Fires of all types, waves of all sizes have seemed to hammer and burn to the point of no return, yet the fire has NOT burned you, the waves have NOT overtaken you. Not a hair on your head has been burned, nor do your clothes smell like smoke. Daniel 3:27 YOU have become the fire, and the more you realize that this fire is to help you, refine you, and strengthen you, You will see that your enemy cannot stand where you STAND!  Rise up Warriors!! Call down the F I R E OF HEAVEN into your circumstances. Watch and Stand, fully involved, and see the enemy disappear like riffs of smoke.

"When all kinds of trials and temptations crowd into your lives my brothers, don't resent them as intruders, but welcome them as friends! Realise that they come to test your faith and to produce in you the quality of endurance. But let the process go on until that endurance is fully developed, and you will find you have become mature of character with the right sort of independence." James 1:2-4

"I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. But He that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: He will baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with FIRE!"   Matt. 3:11-12

"The LORD sat at the flood.
Yes, YHWH sits King forever.
The LORD will give strength to His people. The LORD will bless His people with Peace."
Psalms 29:10,11

Be still. R E S T.

  As I have pressed into engaging Father Yahweh's Heart, I have seen the turbulent water CALM. Creator has already been speaking intently to the heart of hearts. Deep issues of fears even from childhood are seeing the Light of His Love for the first time. 
Desiring intimacy, His son Yeshua waits for you on the top of your circumstance. Strategies are formed together as you lean on His shoulder and stand your ground on top of the flood. Ruach Hakodesh (Holy Spirt) has been leading with this scripture, and I believe it will help as your heart is awakened to hope again...

"I have compared myself, 
with YHWH always before me. 
I shall not be moved because He is my right hand.
Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices exuberantly! My flesh also will rest in hope."
Psalms 16:8-11


THIS IS THE TIME to be intentional in your step towards what the Father is speaking to your heart amidst the noisy crash of waves. The turmoil will be followed by Mighty Yahweh crashing in like a Flood...Isaiah 44:3 Truly setting the stage for a  s w e l l  season!

One thing I know for sure: THIS YEAR IS A YEAR WITHOUT FEAR! Your time<<>>to Dance upon your circumstance, and actually see that fear has NO power over you anymore. Now is your time to DANCE ON FEAR. Immediately refocus your vision upon Him who is Faithful and Stand beside Him on the Waves of your circumstance. This very moment, E N V I S I O N your greatest battle, the ultimate test of your being, right now see yourself as the conquerer standing beside Salvation Yeshua on the turbulent water.

"YHWH is our refuge and strength, 
a very present help 
in trouble." Psalm 46:1

As the Hebraic year 5777 is well under swing, note that there is no more grey. It is now black and white. Crystal clear, Abba means to separate spirit from flesh. The tidal wave that you see is actually the move of God, "Heaven coming. Coming with much love. For it is time for you to know He has your heart in His hand. He's written you there, your name is on His palm. And He is sweetly singing "You will make it!"" (from song Wayha) 

You will rise upon this: 
THE  S W E L L  SEASON and surf the glorious wave that is overcoming Your Past. This is the year You will Dance upon the wave of your circumstance and Dance next to the One who has overcome the world. PEACE. Rise up upon the wave. 

read- 2 Samuel 22:1-51
( "And David spoke to the Lord the words of this song
    in the day that the YHWH* had delivered him from the 
     hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul..." )

Help is on the Way <<>>

28 Then Kefa called to him, "Yeshua, if it is really you, tell me to come
to you on the water.” 29 “Come!” he said. So Kefa got out of the 
and walked on the water toward Yeshua. 30 But when he saw the wind, 
he became afraid; and as he began to sink, he yelled, “Lord! Save me!” 
31 Yeshua immediately stretched out his hand, took hold of him, and 
said to him, “Such little trust! Why did you doubt?” 32 As they went up 
into the boat, the wind ceased. 33 The men in the boat fell down before 
him and exclaimed, “You really are Yahweh's Son!”  
Matthew 14: 28-33

"Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter His rest."
Hebrews 4:11

Have you noticed the spiritual climate change?  Have you felt as though things are hanging in the balance? Even the weather has seemed to flow in tandem. The air has a special, almost tangible excitement to it, doesn't it? "Though He slay me..." yet you have said many times through some of the darkest battles. Still choosing, after having done all to stand, to STAND. It is out of this rest that He has drawn you into a deeper understanding of walking on the wave of your circumstance. 

Stand there now. Picture with me as a wave, whatever circumstance that surrounds you. The Father standing beside you, now stand on the wave and rest it with Him. It is this under'standing' that will unlock a perspective of REST that will champion you to the next level of overcoming.

I'm excited to tell you an amazing story of prophetic confirmation. Because I grew up white, discovering that my father's side of the family has Native American heritage has come with a price. The Lord has been speaking to me all year about being set free. I have had dreams even outlining this freedom. Identity has been on the forefront of my mind, because I believe that it is on the mind of the Lord. He has outlined who we are in His word, but how do we walk that out when we receive rejection or feel so rejected by others because of the color of our skin, or the clothes we wear. Richard Leo Twiss wrote a book called "500 Years Of Bad Haircuts," do we have to cut our hair to fit in? How do we break free from the confines of what others say we are, to what God says we are? "WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERERS!" Romans 8:37 How do we enjoy who God created us to be, if we are afraid to be who we were created to be? Do we know what that looks like?

For exercise I run through the woods and work out on the rocks. I listen to the water. I listen to the sounds of nature. The birds know who I am. They know when a true son of God walks among them and they sing with excitement. The trees clap their hands, but I am the one crying out...Lord heal me! On one of my runs I was communicating with the Lord and asking Him all types of questions regarding what to do with such a passionate heart that seems only to be met with sneers of rejection. One of the greatest affirmations I have received happened on a run near my favorite waterfall.

Doug Addison's prophetic word that day was:
"God will give you wisdom through the least likely places. Pay attention to what children are saying." November 2nd, 2014

On the rock before me was the word "Smile" written in colorful chalk. I stopped and thought, "Yeah, I should smile cause God created me!" Then I looked down, and literally written on the rock between my feet was the word: "CROATOAN." I was shocked! For that is my very own heritage. Because of the rejection of feeling Native but not knowing why, and the sinister battle of doubt after finding out why, I began to wonder whether God had spoken to me at all. And it seemed easier to just quit trying to prove it. It wasn't until later that evening as I was locking the door at work, when a toddler pointed to me from the stairs and said: "IS THAT A KEY?" Instantly I remembered the word written on the rocks and realized God had used a child to bring confirmation. A heritage that I believe He wants to expose so that others can be free. "It is for freedom that Messiah has set us free." Galatians 5:1 He created everyone of us uniquely in His image. My freedom looks like dancing in regalia before The Lord, worshipping and bringing glory to His name through song. What makes you come ALIVE?

Free At Last (You Are A Son)

(Image from Marshall County Public Library) 

On March 30, 2014 I had a dream that I approached two black men and hugged the first one and said: "Do you know that you are about to be set free?" I then proceeded to show them a book outline of what was coming. I awoke from the dream with the overwhelming understanding that God was completely releasing them from oppression and bondage of any kind: Acceptance driven freedom! A release of freedom from Heaven. Doug Addison recently wrote: "God spoke to me that there has been injustice in the land. People have judged and not loved. Therefore He is moving on behalf of those who have been wounded. We are going to see a major move of God begin (2016) and go on through 2022."

Hate is too great a burden to bear."

Toasted PB&J sandwiches...Angels are bound to show up now!

Have you ever eaten your last sandwich? Have you ever toasted a peanut butter and jelly sandwich so that it tastes better than the next to last one you've got left? In 1999 I had my first experience of this. I was living in a 161 year old log cabin in the North Carolina mountains. Everything had fallen through: my job, a relationship, my purpose (so I thought at the time) and now - my food.
No provision. No hope. Just God.

I decided to read Matthew 6:
"For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can a a single hour to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we EAT?' or 'What will we drink?
 or 'What will we wear for clothing?' For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your Heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."  
Matthew 6: 25-33

I decided to trust.
I decided to rest.
30 minutes later, a call came through the line and a voice said: "A friend in town says you own a truck and could help me move. How would you like to make $100 and I'll buy you dinner?"
At the time I did not even have the gas to drive to this divine appointment. I got in my truck and it never stalled, never even acted like the gage was on empty. My God is a GOOD GOD!! For you are GOOD TO ME!!! Whatever you are going through right now, press into your provider God with all abandon and trust that truly:

"we know that in all things God works for your good, because you love Him, and have been called according to His purpose."
Romans 8:28



As you rise up and believe
The Angels hear your cry
Declare in the Heavens
Who you are

Deep within your frame
The strength from pain
Trust in the Lord
I say trust again

His grace, His Grace
Is sufficient
Declare what you believe
May Heaven instantly agree

He is coming, His promise sure
The time has come to favor her
Open doors I will walk through
His anointing changing altitude

To see my calling I declare
He is risen see yourself there
The numbers, moments all line up
Freedom here to take you up

Higher, higher we ascend
Come up, come up new

"Waking Up Creation"

On what I call 'scripture runs' I am purposefully working out mind, body and Spirit by running through the woods for endurance and quoting scripture declarations over myself and the land. On one surprising run, Creator showed me blue light emanating from my feet, as if I were creating rings while running across water.  Creator said: "Jonathan, the earth is waking up; but it is not waking you up, You are waking it up. Release this light wherever you run." Can you imagine my joy as I continued to change the atmosphere of that place, running like a Warrior! Passing by these woods one day I heard clearly: "This is your Chatahoula." I knew that my sanctuary had been named and later found that Chatahoula means: 'beautiful, clear water.'

A year later I moved to another location, in fact where as a child I had grown up playing in the nearby woods with large boulders. Since August of last year, there has been an enormous assault on the minds of Believers. These attacks of fear and doubt have been so overwhelming that some have lost hope, got confused and quit trying or abandoned moving forward through new doors that Y'shua has been opening. But there are exciting new stories, like this one where others have triumphed over doubt and pressed into all that God has:

In October 14, 2014 Doug Addison wrote: "At the level the enemy has come against you, you will want to push back at the same intensity."

 I came home tired and worn out that night, but knew in my spirit that I was going to overcome. I felt God say, "put on your regalia and dance in the midst of fear." I dressed for war. I arrived in the dark woods and made my way to the large boulders to make known where I stand. As I was putting an anointed feather in my hair, I opened my mouth singing declarations of 'who I am in Messiah' and the ground lit up with light that instant! I looked up quickly to see a ball of light trail through the sky over my head. I overcame my fear that night. The enemy lost. The next morning I read reports of a large meteor that broke off of a comet that streamed across the sky from Georgia to Alabama. According to 'The Divinity Code' by Adam Thompson & Adrian Beale, a Meteor = sign from God.

On February 9th 2015, I again was in the same woods at night on a 'scripture run' declaring and decreeing. I ran the equivalent of 91 flights of stairs! "You will not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness." Psalm 91:5  Standing in the strong wind upon a high rock, I began to give Abba Father praise for His incredible love for me and instantly a shooting star streamed over my head in the very direction of the meteor months ago. I was overjoyed and gave thanks to Him who is so involved in the details of our lives that He would again confirm: "You are waking up Creation."


On February 3, 2014 I had a prophetic dream that I worked in a Native American store. The owner of that store was a Chief and I saw him write his name down and I kept waking up and falling back asleep with the spelling of the name "ADO NAI" and knew that it was important for me to remember, and I remember thinking:
"If I had known it was the Chief, I would have worked harder."  This dream caused my work ethic to drastically change, for I felt it was a call to "work as unto the Lord" and even decided to step-it-up at work without even getting paid to do so. I am much more joyful at work!  Now, looking at this metaphorically I realized that Papa was 'in the house.' God made it clear that He was in my day-to-day, calling me to prepare. Awakening me to the understanding that this time, right now, is a crucial time. Not only of advancement but one of preparation for the next move of God. I pressed in all the more. He wants us to advance! One of the ways God used to position me for success was following Doug Addison's daily prophetic word (dougaddison.com). It seemed like the words were hand picked just for me, and not only did they encourage me, they allowed me to listen to the Holy Spirit and interpret for myself how they applied. Doug's encouragement helped keep me focused on releasing the new sound of Heaven, which are the songs you are hearing on the music player. This is the time to press into all God has for our lives!

At 1:33am on September 22, 2014 I was awoken by an intense rainstorm. As I lay there wide awake, I asked the Lord what He wanted to show me and I heard, "My anointed ones are shutting down their communication." I believe there has been a spiritual storm moving through that has caused those with ears to hear to cup their ears and return to their slumber.. 

I feel this is a call and an urgent time to listen and respond to the still small voice. If you feel like there is a decision that The Lord is asking you to make about something that may be holding you back from entering into your promise land in this next season, please respond quickly to His gentle leading. "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." Hebrews 12:1  

On September 27, 2014 I had a prophetic dream that I was working at the Fire Department again. We were wearing uniforms and celebrated with a beer and then it changed to wine. I remember feeling excited and asking for more wine, but they acted like I had too much. I even slurred my speech a bit. We were told to change clothes, but I was told I was staying behind...
Then this morning, December 7, 2014 I had another prophetic dream that I was given a horn with a chain attached. I put it in my pocket and as I looked down at the ball field below where Native Americans were dancing, I was concerned that they would hear the horn's chain jingle. I pulled the horn out and looked at it, there appeared to be gold coins attached with the head of a god on them. I then walked down the field looking for a dumpster. I discarded the horn in a trash can filled with wine bottles and beer cans...

"Everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial..."  1 Cor.10:23
For the past couple months I have been wrestling with interpretation of dreams as I have sometimes up to 3 dreams a night. But in particular I have been wrestling with what God wanted to show me in my own life, which was drinking was an "idol" for me. I awoke today and repented and have chosen to give up what is holding me back. 

When I arrived at work today, I began seeing an immediate increase in my prophetic gifting which had seemed to go away entirely and was causing me great concern. Encouraging words flowed freely for people and joy seemed to be beaming in areas that had been dulled and muddied with fear. I am here to witness that responding to the Lord in the area that He has been bringing His attention too will bring life, and I have found true freedom in repentance and letting go. "Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour."  1 Peter 5:8 (ASV)
