God's DNA And Your Identity In Him

No one else can carry what God the Father has uniquely given you to carry. Absolutely no one can do that but YOU. Oh someone else can try to, but it will not be to the same magnitude nor will it have the intended effect because YOU were designed to carry it and not them. So is it important that we walk out what He has given us to do? Yes! A hundred times Y-E-S!!!

There are people who God has called you to reach through the gifts and creativity that is inside of you. He gave it to you. You are made in His image. God is a Creator and when we live and move and have our being in Him; so are we. We create with Him as He leads us. Don’t shy away or back down from the unique gifts that you carry inside of you. As a believer, you carry divine genetics. You have the DNA of God within you. And He is just waiting to unlock it and show you the potential you have in Christ. It’s magnificent. It’s awesome. And it’s relevant for now.

The time is now. Some of you have been asking, “When’s the time?” Well, I hear The Lord saying that the time is NOW. Not yesterday, not tomorrow, but now!! This is the season. The time is now. The key is in finding or discovering your identity in Him, in Jesus. WHO ARE YOU IN CHRIST? Don’t dismiss this question; for it’s more relevant now than it’s ever been. Who are you in Him?

Many people want to know but they don’t understand how to go about finding out or receiving it. Well, God always intentionally leaves an element of mystery in place so that we will seek Him for the answers. It is His nature to hide revelation for us to find (Proverbs 25:2). And He often uses others in the Body of Christ to help reveal more of this to us. In other words, we need each other. God doesn't show us everything; not even about ourselves. He has set it up this way on purpose. Ultimately, He wants us to seek Him for it.

You might not be called to impact everybody, but you are called to make a difference in the lives of certain people in certain areas. It might be an entire region. Or it might be your city. Or it might be your family.

Your identity is not what has happened to you. Your identity isn't what other people say about you or how they treat you. Your identity is not even what you think about yourself sometimes. Your true identity is only found in Yeshua; Jesus Christ. He is the KEY to knowing who you really are. And He is the KEY to unlocking this great potential to excel and succeed and do great and mighty things in the world for Him.

It might be through the arts (music, painting, photography, videography, writing, dance, etc.). It might be through engineering (designing buildings, structures, highways, bridges, etc.). It might be through healthcare (doctors, nurses, technologists, therapists, nutritionists, etc.).

It might be about growing healthy, sustainable foods or making the best quality coffee or tea that you can offer to your community. Communities need master carpenters, electricians, and plumbers; they need teachers, florists, bakers and chefs; they need mayors, law enforcement, fire and rescue; they need farmers, mechanics, and postman.

There are many of you who are called to be entrepreneurs and don’t even know it. God has not only given you an innovative gift that will help people and advance His Kingdom but will also help you to make a good living.

Some of you are called to carry the torch of righteousness for your homes, your families, and your cities. Some are called to be tuners. Not just tuners in the natural, meaning tuning musical instruments or electronic devices, but spiritual tuners. God wants to use you to help “tune” others into the things of the Spirit. Into spiritual truths. This is very important.  

Some are called to be negotiators or intercessors. Your words are designed to dispel the antagonist in operation. Your words sow seed in the ground and when the time is right; they will come forth and produce a harvest.

And it is the time of unusual harvests - you’ll reap more than you planted or sowed. This is a spiritual principle in effect. Seed, time, and harvest (Genesis 8:22). What’s unusual is how God is going to manifest it. Increases will happen in unexpected but extraordinary ways.

Speaking of extraordinary, there is something special God has placed on the inside of you. There are times that you can feel it. You might not be able to fully get ahold of it yet but we have come into a time when God is going to make many things known. Exposure isn't always a bad thing. Yes, there are many exposures aligning up to reveal what has been kept in secret; what has been hidden, covered-up, and concealed. Some of it is bad. But some of it is really good. For The Lord to expose your true identity in Him is a really GOOD thing. So embrace it. Welcome it. It doesn't just matter or make a difference. It is VITAL for this time we are in; for now. It will astound you just how highly God thinks of you AND how much He has actually entrusted you with for the sake of His Kingdom.

To know the truth of why you were created, to understand the purpose for your being born; to come into the knowledge of this will literally change your life. Get ready, for God is setting many people up to discover and walk in the truth of who they are and what they were sent to this earth to accomplish.

You were created in excellence. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You were born to do great exploits. You are designed to walk in the sphere of your calling that God alone has placed deep inside of you. It’s time to let it rise up. It’s time for you to find out the truth of your inheritance in Christ. He LOVES you!!! And it is time for you to come out of hiding and allow the Holy Spirit to guide and direct you into the knowledge of all truth. He wants to show you things that are to come. Things you will do together.

It's time to come up higher.

In the Name of Jesus, I am calling you to come out now and embrace the truth of God’s goodness and who you are in Him. You were born for such a time as this. God does not make junk. Let Him show you the high value and worth He sees and has placed within you.

Raise your head up. He’s calling for you!

Winter Seasons Produce Stronger Roots

When we're going through something painful, especially when it's long term, it can leave us feeling weary, frustrated, and forgotten. After so long it feels like nothing will ever change. We feel stuck in it. Stuck in a barren, lonely place. What once used to be vibrant and full of color has now muted into a hundred shades of dull gray.

This is actually a truth I see expressed through nature this time of year. Those vibrant, beautiful colors in the peak of fall will eventually give way to the barrenness and harsh cold of winter. And during those long winter days, it can feel like spring will never come much less summer.

But even winter has its beauty. Even winter holds value and significance. Winter is a season that is more about unseen preparation than outward adornment. All the action is happening underground and out of sight. The beauty of spring, summer, and fall is more tangibly visible. And although I personally find tangible beauty in it, winter is not nearly the eye candy that spring, summer, and fall are. 

But, and this is a big but, the sweet eye candy we start seeing in spring that proliferates through summer and fall would not be possible if it weren't for the unseen preparations of winter. What goes on in winter - the barrenness and dormancy - has everything to do with preparing for the budding and blooming of spring. Summer leaves, plants, and flowers cannot blossom without spring's buds and blooms. And autumn's brilliant colors would never show apart from summer's fullness. It's the cycle of growth. The cycle of life. We cannot have one without the other. They're all necessary.

Root systems are what nourish and anchor trees and plants. While everything above ground is in dormancy during the winter months; roots maintain a readiness to grow. In fact, winter causes root systems to dig deeper underground and expand in search of nutrients and water in advance of spring budding. What beauty we see with our eyes - the limbs, the leaves, the stems, the buds, the flowers - is but a reflection of what is unseen beneath the ground. A tree, a plant, or a flower is only as strong as its roots. Roots are the life source.

God is our life source. And when we are rooted more deeply in Him, we can better endure the elements and outward assaults that come our way. Including all those He allows into our lives. In fact, they can drive us deeper into Him. I know it doesn't feel like anything comforting or miraculous while it's happening. Believe me, I understand well. It can actually feel pretty harsh, agonizing, lonely, and even a bit maddening. But if I've learned one thing it's this: growth is painful but oh so necessary. 

And the Father is very interested in our proper growth. He wants us to excel and succeed in what He's called us to do for the Kingdom. That means we will all go through times of pruning and purging, as well as times when He will place us in a winter season, what appears to be a state of dormancy, in order to mature and nourish our roots deeper in Him. There isn't as much outward growth happening because it is an appointed time for inner growth. This is also a time when we can learn how to truly rest in Him. A place where we come to learn for ourselves more of who He is.

It's necessary. 

He is a really good God. He is. And He loves us so much and has a deep longing for us to really know Him. He also likes to bless us. However, we aren't always ready to handle the greatness of what He desires to bless and entrust us with. So He will place us in His designated growth process to prepare us. And it usually hurts. Just like we experience growing pains during the physical or natural process of growing up, so do we experience growing pains in the process of our spiritual growth. 

But here's the good news; it draw us closer to Jesus. It roots us deeper in His love, truth, hope, and grace. 

This will produce beautiful, abiding fruit in our lives - that sweet eye candy. The harvest we reap for Him will also be greater because of it. And our faith will expand and grow stronger as well. We will have more productive and abundant spiritual seasons as a result. But never forget that eye candy is only a reflection of what's been really going on down in our root systems; deep down where the Holy Spirit has been at work in us. In our hearts. That's where the producing of greater things starts taking it's form. That's the part we can't always see or fully understand during those long winter seasons. But He does. And this is where our trust in Him is required. He's safe. 

I believe when we live and move and have our being in God; nothing is wasted. Absolutely nothing. Not even the winters of our lives.

Let your roots grow down into him [Christ], and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with gratitude. Colossians 2:7 


There is a season for everything, and a time for every purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1


That according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.  Ephesians 3:16-19 


Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.  Jeremiah 17:7-8.

Hello November



It's been quite awhile since I've blogged on The Ragamuffin Saint. My health has needed my undivided attention. With an insidious, debilitating illness like chronic Lyme disease, there is always something going on; even in the quest of healing. I've honestly not felt like writing. Nor have I had the desire to. But writing is a healthy and beneficial outlet. And since fall is my favorite time of year; I thought I'd try to write a little something at least.

I celebrate my birthday this month so I do love November. And I happen to like my birthday. But let me just state for the record that celebrating birthdays (or holidays) when chronically ill isn't a great big party. It's more like a quiet personal event at home. Therefore I try to focus on some joy and beauty in the day despite how I might be physically feeling. My mom always does something to make my birthday special in some way. And generally, I always try to find some kind of beauty within the messiness. Actually, I think it's necessary. 

I love November for many reasons. I love the quiet contemplative beauty it brings. I love watching the vibrant reds, yellows, and oranges of October give way to the rusty browns of November. I love this whole season. And as I've gotten older, I've come to love and appreciate Thanksgiving even more as well. 

So hello November. Nice to see you again.

Praying The Kingdom To Come Through The Lord's Prayer

"Pray like this: Our Father in Heaven, holy is your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us today our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For yours is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.]"  Matthew 6:9-13



The Lord's Prayer calls for the Kingdom to manifest on Earth as it is in Heaven. It's how Jesus taught us to pray. 

The Kingdom of God doesn't come to blend in with the culture. The Kingdom comes to establish the culture of Heaven on Earth.

The Kingdom is present but not fully come. Jesus established the arrival of the Kingdom. It came with Him. And yet, The Kingdom of Heaven is not fully consummated.

Heaven is invading Earth. Therefore, people are going to start beholding the Kingdom in a greater degree. The Earth belongs to the Lord and He can do whatever He wants. And He wants to let us know what is coming.

Here it is: Heaven is coming to express itself more on Earth. The Kingdom is going to manifest in greater degrees. We will behold (see or witness) it. This is called the Kingdom Age. 

God does and will continue to manifest Himself THROUGH His people; through believers in Yeshua Christ. The Kingdom expands in greater degrees through us individually and also corporately as the Church, especially as we allow the Holy Spirit to expand within us. But The Kingdom is coming to expand more within the natural Earth in ways it never has before. Therefore it will be more "on Earth as it is in Heaven."

God wants us to behold HIM more. That’s what this is really all about. His Kingdom brings the revelation of who He is. Jesus said if you have seen me, you’ve seen The Father. The revelation began with and is still found in and through Jesus.

When Jesus told the disciples HOW to pray (The Lord’s Prayer), He was expressing a way to call the Kingdom to come (approach, draw closer, move nearer, arrive, materialize) in a greater way. It implies there’s more. And there is more. That is what we are calling to come forth when we pray it. 

So the questions remain, WHY would The Father do this? WHY does He want us to behold His Kingdom more? WHY does He want us to behold Him more?

And the answer is: BECAUSE HE LOVES US. And He wants us to really know Him. And His home.

What Is Prophetic Expression?

Prophetic expression is a manner in which God makes himself known to people. He can do this through any means He desires like a movie, song, TV show, blog, stranger, or life occurrence that might seem random but really isn't. 

He also reveals himself prophetically through His children and He often does this through believers who have been called to function in prophetic ministry. He works through both the spiritual and natural gifts and talents they have.

Making revelation known to someone in this unique style isn't only exciting; it's very powerful and impacting. 

Our Heavenly Father is good at creating this expressive outlet in most unusual and amazing ways. He does this to draw attention to what He wants the person or people to know. And He attaches a part of himself and their destiny to it.

Did you catch that?

God attaches a piece of himself and the person's future to the expression. The revelation is in direct proportion to the will and purpose of God for their life. I think that's incredibly awesome and speaks to how much He loves us.

He does this to encourage us, give us hope, and spark faith on a deeper level. He also does it to reveal more of himself and what He created us to do in order to awaken us to the personal destiny we have in Christ. 

The expression is the actual form or medium that the prophetic revelation takes. And there are many different kinds of expression.

Prophetic expression certainly flows through the spoken word. It also flows through the visual, creative, and performing arts and in fact; that is one of God's favorite ways to communicate to people.

It can come through painting, sketching, sculpting, poetry, writing, photography, film, music, song, dance, weaving, and woodworking, among many others. 

The amazing thing about prophetic expression is that Jesus, who is the Spirit of prophecy (Revelation 19:10), chooses what to express and how best to express it. 

It is specific to the person or people receiving it and it's for a specific time. Often, a prophetic expression can serve as confirmation to us about something we're already aware of. It's like getting verification. However, it can also reveal a glimpse of our future that we do not yet know. 

The Lord will speak uniquely through the gifting (spiritual and natural) a person has and operates in to express His heart to someone. It's quite beautiful and it can be life changing; it's meant to be. 

For instance, if He chooses to express Himself prophetically to you through a photograph, that photo will be specific to the communication. In other words, it holds the expression of His heart.

We must first understand that God has His own language with which He communicates, and it is often symbolic. Much like when He gives us a dream, He wraps the revelation in symbolism. We have to interpret it. 

Jesus spoke in parables much, and when you read the Gospels, you see He communicated spiritual truths through allegory quite often; through symbolism, metaphor, and analogy. 

So it is with prophetic expression today. It helps define the unknown using the known. 

This also reveals to us one of the ways God likes to speak. He knows whether we're familiar with it or not, so either way, He'll get the message across, but the more we learn how He speaks, the easier it will be for us to understand. And it's always important to ask the Holy Spirit for guidance.

Let's say the picture He gives you is a red rose blooming in the sunlight. 

What is He saying to you?

The kind of flower; the color of the flower; that the flower isn't fully open but is in the process of blooming with the sun shining on it - these elements are all a part of what He's revealing. And to fully understand, you must look at each element within the picture.

Remember, every detail is important to what He is conveying and actually; each detail is intentional. 

Whenever God uses my gift of photography to release a prophetic expression to someone, He might want a Scripture included, or a short summary of what the photo represents to give a degree of understanding. Sometimes He'll speak a more in-depth word for them. Nevertheless, He always leaves an element of mystery in place so the person will seek Him for themselves. Keep in mind, it is God's nature to hide revelation for us to find (Proverbs 25:2).

So back to the flower. What could He be expressing to you?

In this example, maybe He wants you to know you are important to Him; that He loves you very much and is passionate about you (red rose can represent you being His beloved), and through His love and light, some aspect of your life is starting to unfold (blooming in the sunlight). Maybe greater wisdom is developing in your life. Or perhaps He's saying you are going to start operating in a greater anointing (the color red can represent love, wisdom, power or anointing, and sunlight can be a play on words for SON-light or the light of the Son, Jesus).

OR

Perhaps He is saying there are layers in your heart He's beginning to open up and reveal more of His love to (red rose petals opening); that He is going to shine His light on you and cause you to flourish. Or perhaps there's a certain area in your heart He wants to shine His love and light on (sunlight shining on the rose), which in turn, will bring healing and cause you to blossom and grow more in wisdom, love, and power, or in what you're called to do (the process of blooming). 

OR

Perhaps red roses mean something in particular to you. Maybe they remind you of a certain event in your life or a person who is very special to you. Maybe red roses are your most favorite flower in the world. Maybe the sunshine and red roses bring you great warmth and joy. Maybe there's an inside joke about red roses that no one else would know or understand but you and God. He knows all this, and it could be part of the overall message, if not the whole message itself. 

Do you see the different ways He can communicate through one photo? Through one expression?

The whole meaning would change if the rose were a different color or a different type of flower altogether. 

The point is, whatever the specific purpose for the expression, is what He will make known to you. The Father knows how to reach each of us. He knows the precise route to take that will distinctly speak to us. 

Because of Jesus, we have abundant life (John 10:10). So whenever He speaks to us through a prophetic expression, He really wants to instill and release more of this life into us.

It's often called zóé, which means life. Strong's Greek Concordance defines it as life, both of physical (present) and of spiritual (particularly future) existence. It only comes from and is sustained by God's self-existent lifeI like to call it the absolute fullness of life, or the God life. Again, it's abounding existence is found in Christ.

So whatever form of expression He chooses, please know it's more than just a few mere words, or a painting, photo, or piece of art. You are receiving an actual part of Him and your God-given destiny. It has been uniquely created from the Throne Room of Heaven just for you. And you will feel it. Oh yes, He's that personal. And you're that special to Him! The Lord really likes to give us His tailor-made expressions. It gives Him great joy to do so.

Remember that true prophetic expression reveals, inspires, encourages and edifies. It imparts life, ignites faith and hope, and reveals the Father's heart and His love for us. Always.

The Silence of The Lamb by Scott Hagan

Last Easter, I came across this deeply poignant article online at Charisma Magazine entitled, "What We Can Learn from God's Silence." It was an excerpt from The Silence of the Lamb written by Scott Hagan. I'd never read anything quite like it. So beautiful. So piercing. So true. It touched my heart in a unique way. I wanted to share it with you on this Good Friday. Love and Blessings. ~ Michelle
I recently uncovered the amazing mysteries of tranquility while excavating a lost sermon of Jesus. I’d been overlooking it in my gospel quarry for years. Once I knew where to dig, it became a simple discovery—one I invite you to make for yourself.

Take a few moments with your New Testament and look up every passage detailing the crucifixion. Once you’ve found them all, write out the statements recorded as coming from the lips of Jesus while He hung on the cross. Now, slowly repeat those statements aloud, one after the other. You’ll find they barely fill one minute of spoken conversation when strung together. Seven one-liners!

What was Jesus saying during the rest of His six hours on the cross?

There is much He could have said. He could have ended the opening argument of His extradition with an ear-splitting sermon or offered up a plateful of prophetic thunder as a parting shot for Pilate. He could have unloaded an earful at the elders. He could have undressed with righteous rhetoric the Roman cohorts who stripped His clothes, and then showered condemnation on those who spat upon Him. He could have bellowed out a few shots from Jeremiah’s prophecies to wayward Israel or ordered up a few hungry bears as Elijah did.

Yet the Bible says, “when He was reviled, [He] did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten” (1 Peter 2:23). In the natural, Jesus’ actions made no sense. When taunted, He remained tight-lipped. When abused and pierced, His words of forgiveness flowed as quickly as His blood.

He didn’t require His wounds to dry, scab and scar before He forgave. There is no record that Jesus calculated His personal pain before discharging his pardon. Each bruise and blow was met with silent mercy.

In His silence, Jesus was doing more than dying. He was communicating in red ink the timeless secrets of the kingdom. He was openly showing His bride how to embrace the cross that awaited her—and no true disciple can escape the cross.

We all know that it is tough at times to maintain a pure perspective through strenuous seasons of cross shaping. My only hope of success comes when my eyes remain fixed on the body language of Calvary’s quiet Lamb, when I carefully listen to the words He didn't say. For when my eyes and ears tune out the cross, I fast become exasperated with people and plummet into spiritual defeat.

There will always be people who make big things out of small things in my life. But then, I remember the cross—and how Jesus went through it first.

I can always count on uninvited guests who enjoy watching my heavenly Father discipline me—and that can be terribly embarrassing. But again, I remember: Jesus went through that, too.

Even if God sends spiritually immature Christians into my life as part of His mysterious blueprint to grow me—to school me in silence—I must not forget that Jesus felt that too. All of this was the cross! At least it’s the one Jesus knew.

But for all the strains you and I face as followers, no one will ever pay a toll like Jesus. His death is filled with endless grace and boundless perplexity.

For it was I, not Jesus, who should have died for violating my Creator’s commands. And it was I who deserved the burden of transporting heavy timbers barefoot over jagged hillsides for my iniquity. It was I who merited loud public laughter and the agony of pointy thorns stabbing through my forehead.

And it was I who should have felt my ribs being pierced as pagan spittle dripped from my face. Yes, it was I who should have hung incapacitated for six millennia, not six hours.

Yet it was Jesus, not I, who violently died in silent payment.

So this Easter, I encourage you to rise early, don the bonnets and polish the shoes. It’s the day when God’s people around the world colorfully rejoice in His resurrection!

But while you’re celebrating, pause to remember the greatest silent sermon ever preached. The one that lasted for six hours. The one that’s easy to memorize but difficult to emulate. The one that was lived, not spoken, by a silent Lamb.

- Scott Hagan

The Symphony and The Static by Pontifex

I really love what Father Claude Burns (aka Father Pontifex), a rapping Catholic priest and urban poet from Indiana, is doing to spread the Gospel. With a fresh blend of hip-hop, electronica, and orchestral strings, he writes and performs songs in spoken word from his perspective about the joys and pains of life; the drama and the tension. Or as he so eloquently puts it, "the symphony and the static". He also raps about love, mercy and discipleship.

I'm not Catholic, but he is my brother in Christ. And I love his meaningful, truthful, and unique approach to communicating life and Jesus. And I absolutely love the different infusions of sound and music on this album, The Symphony and The Static. It's truly worth listening to. In a behind the scenes video, Father Pontifex said this project was inspired by the Holy Spirit. You can read more about him and his music at frpontifex.com/

Thought I would share a couple of his videos (brilliantly filmed by Spirit Juice Studios) beginning with The Overture, which focuses on the harmonious and chaotic seasons of this journey called life. The music and videography are equally fantastic. And very creative. I'll post a second video later on.

Hope you enjoy.

Blessings. ~ Michelle

The Changing of The Guard and The Isaac Generation

The Lord spoke this prophetic word to me earlier this month. It is a profound and exciting word about a new guard and a profound and exciting generation. These are His words. He asked me to share it now. Many blessings. ~ Michelle

The Spirit of God says it is the time of the season for the new guard to rise up.

“I AM removing some from their posts. Some will be called home. Others are going to be transitioned from out of their old stations to a new one but in the same location where they’ve always been. Their precision and skill will serve them and those they are covering in this new position.

Others will be brought out of confining places and posted on an entirely different watch altogether. They will occupy new places on My behalf and I will give them new strategies for these new places I have called them to conquer for Me.

Still others are going to walk out from the hidden places and take their assigned place where I have ordained them to be. Some names you are going to be familiar with and others will be those you have never heard of before. Nevertheless, they walk in My Order.

As I unlatch the gate to this changing of the guard, My Order will rise up in this company of ministers (Ephesians 4:11-13). They will serve the people I have placed before them in love and commitment. They will not bend with the changing of the wind but will stand firm upon the Rock, Christ Jesus; the lover of their souls.

There is a new company of prophets I AM raising up. Their growth will be fast. Their spiritual gifts will multiply quickly. They will be like seasoned vessels in a short period of time. They are aligning up alongside other prophetic voices in the Body of Christ. I AM taking them to the ones who will receive them and lift them upon their own shoulders. I will use them as a launch pad for this younger generation.

They will present the Gospel of Christ in a unique way but without compromise of truth. They are yielded and sold out to that which I have chosen them for. They will walk as no names in the earth but this will be of no concern to them; for their highest desire is to make Yeshua known. Some will want to walk with them for the elevation or status but they won’t be able to keep up because they were never assigned to walk this way.

It will become apparent through this new generation of prophets that I sow My chosen ones where and when I want them. And it is often in unexpected places and at unexpected times. These are My servants that I call friends. They walk with Me and talk with Me. They are ever eager to hear and know more of My heart. They desire My Order in all things.

The Isaac Generation

The Isaac Generation will serve Me in a way you do not yet know or realize. And the magnitude of their service will astonish many. The generation born from the year 2000 to this present time will walk in godly boldness and authority as never before. They are going to be relentless in their pursuits for the Kingdom.
 
The Isaac Generation is a promise from Me.

Just as the Isaac of old was a promise fulfilled to Abraham and Sarah; so is this Isaac a promise I will fulfill to My Church. Barrenness will no longer occupy My house (Genesis 21:1-3). Through this promise I AM raising up a standard against the enemy. The standard of Christ is strong in these young ones and they will war with His standard in their hearts. They will occupy new ground and new territory for Him. And they will walk in the supernatural as a generation has never done before.

The Isaac Generation has an anointing for prosperity.

Just as Isaac sowed in famine and reaped abundance in the same time; so will this generation (Genesis 26:12-14). They are anointed to prosper in all they do.

The Isaac Generation will walk in a double portion anointing.

Just as Isaac prayed for his wife, Rebekah, to have children when she was barren and I heard and blessed her with twins; so will I bless this generation when they ask of Me (Genesis 25:21). I will anoint their prayers with the anointing of double portion.

The Isaac Generation will specialize in aborting the enemy’s plan.

They will discern and have great awareness of what’s going on behind the scenes. Some will walk in new levels of callings that have never been before in the earth. They will pull down generational strongholds that have been in place for many years. By My appointment, they will learn how to tear down demonic structures that are vast in the earth and replace them with My structure; the structure of the Kingdom of Light.

The Isaac Generation will walk in great grace.

They will be known as a generation of warriors who sought after one thing above all the rest – the grace of Christ. This will be their calling card. They won’t settle for anything less. And they will not promote their own hearts but the heart of Jesus.

The enemy wants to steal them and their callings. He wants to shut them down. The spirit of sorcery tries to lure them through this present age of darkness; through the occult and new age practices that are prevalent, some even in the Church. But this new guard I AM raising up will pray and intercede on their behalf. They will allow Me to use their gifts and callings as a platform for the younger ones to learn and grow from in their own gifts and talents.

This is not the time to grow fainthearted; for the Saints of God must stand in the strength of the Lord and the power of His might (Ephesians 6:10-18). This is what the Isaac Generation will do so well.

The Isaac Generation will start a revolution.

I will use the Isaac Generation to start a great revolution in My Church. The revolution is one of intimacy. They will know how to walk in closeness to their Christ. They will be regarded as generals assigned to the front lines. Meaning they walk in high levels of authority but will also engage in the battle and not just watch. I will awaken these young, mighty warriors and they will provoke the elder saints into action because of the vitality and godly zeal they will function in. And most especially because of the intimacy they will walk in with My Son.

They will walk out greater works (John 14:12). Many profound miracles are going to take place when this young generation prays. They will know they are given a great anointing on behalf of the God they serve and for the sake of helping people.

This generation is also of great intelligence. Many would (and will) test extremely high on IQ tests. This intelligence is given by Me, their Heavenly Father, to enable them to walk in those places I’ve called them to go and occupy.

Yeshua is raising up this young generation. They will not tolerate godlessness. They will walk steady and not stumble. They will soar and not slump (Isaiah 40:31). Within this Isaac generation, I AM raising up a new breed of young eagles [prophets]. I AM also raising up a fresh new sound within this breed of prophets; for I AM making My House ready for these young ones.

There are those who are called to help usher these young ones into their place of authority. I will reveal great words to them on behalf of these young warriors in Christ. And these young warriors will walk by the example I will place before them through elder prophets who have learned and know the ways of God. They will teach the younger ones and help them to know what their place is in the Body of Christ. And they won’t reject this instruction but will embrace it with great fervor; for they will know this instruction is paramount to their understanding how to stand in the strength of their call and what they are chosen by Jesus, Himself to accomplish on behalf of His Kingdom.

They will declare, “We are marked and saved by the Blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ!” They will not want to leave room for error but will walk close to those who I AM assigning them to learn from. This will also give them the covering they are going to need.

I will give them an unusual authority by which to operate in, not for themselves, but for the sake of those they are called to serve; for the lost; for the downcast; for the broken. They are going to raise them up and help them see their own destinies in Christ.

They will also be known as My end-time rangers. I will call them out. I will place My anointing upon them and they will flourish. They will utilize all the resources I AM going to give them. They will waste nothing. They will endeavor to take ground at all costs and leave nothing or no one behind.

I have called this generation My Isaac Generation on purpose because the banner they are going to carry reveals the true nature of Abraham’s son, Isaac; the child of promise. They were born for such a time as this.”
