The Cubs Win - A Prophetic Picture

Before moving to Texas in 1961 (immediately after Hurricane Carla had ravaged Galveston), I lived in Northeast Iowa and like my dad, I rooted for the only team that counted - the Chicago Cubs.  I treasure the baseball signed by Ernie Banks. I was thrilled, while attending a church conference in 1985 to attend a Cubs game in Wrigley.  I've been one of those that "always pulled" for the Cubs through the worst of years.

In 1945, my mom and dad were married.  They remember that last pennant won by the team. In a previous blog entitled Two Visitations I wrote the following:
The main part of what I'm sharing will actually refer to the reference regarding a whirlwind or hurricane at the end of the visitation. I believe it confirms and ties together with Chuck Pierce's word regarding the wind being released now that has been held in heaven for the last eight years.

I also referred to a word that he gave to me earlier this year: "I am bringing my people out of Babylon." We are entering the season of restoration, victory and celebration. Last night, I believe that we saw another indicator of this victory and of the wind when the Chicago Cubs won their first pennant after a 71 year wait. The exiles started returning from Babylon after the 70th year. There were tremendous celebrations and restored hope in the faces of the players and fans as they won last night in Chicago, the Windy City.
And those celebrations were nothing compared to those last night as the Cubs broke a 108 year
drought (with a rain delay) by winning the World Series with a double (portion) in the tenth (testimony) inning of the seventh (complete) game of the series. They turned around a certain defeat (in a turn around year) by winning three games (a three-fold cord) in a row. Ben Zobrist, the most valuable player and a devout follower of Jesus hit that double in the tenth which led to the victory. He graduated from Dallas Baptist in the prophet state of Texas where the Lord has declared for this new year that it is a time to "Awake, Emerge and Plunder." By the way, don't miss the gathering (called by the same name) in San Marcos, Texas on November 11-12, 2016. Go to the Glory of Zion website for more info. 

The Cubs roared back like a hurricane. Victory was achieved. Celebrations are in order, and just in case you missed it - I'm really talking about the Kingdom of God. Let the winds blow!

A Prophetic First Fruits Weekend

Don't forget this word given by the Lord!

Have I not declared it and therefore is it not so that Prince of Peace House of Prayer is a key. I hold this key in My hands and in this very hour I am using it to open up the doors of the courts in order that my decrees and plans can and will be released in earth. Do not take this lightly for I have asked others to do this but they did not hear me or they refused my offer. You have not and therefore know, that this day, I am turning you in my hand and the door is opening.

This Friday (November 4) will be our monthly First Fruits worship service here at Prince of Peace House of Prayer.  This morning, during prayers with intercessors across the State of Texas, I heard the Lord declare that "This weekend would be a First Fruits offering for the State of Texas and the Nation."

We will meet at 7 PM, Friday evening, November 4.  We will celebrate our entrance into the month of Cheshvan. Cheshvan is the eighth month of the Jewish calendar and linked with the tribe of Manasseh.  

“Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: “For God has made me forget all my toil and all my father’s house” (Genesis 41:51).

Manasseh means “causing to forget.” I believe the Lord is causing us to look back over the last year and allowing Him to flood us with His grace, strength and love. We will forget the turmoil, the pain, the division, the rhetoric and the "flood of anger, fear and uncertainty" that we have felt regarding terrorism, the economy, racial unrest, the elections, etc. This month marks not only the beginning month but the ending month of the Great Flood. GOD WILL CROWN THIS YEAR with His love.

Allow the fragrance and strength of God to permeate your soulish nature. This is a month to smell the awe of God and a month when the fragrance of the Holy Spirit begins to emanate so a move of the Holy Spirit can begin.

Isn't it interesting, as the Lord was pointing out to me this morning, that He is preparing in this house
(which is a key in His hand) a First Fruit offering for the State and Nation.  Two ministries are coming this weekend of First Fruits.  Both of them approached us to be here this weekend. 

The first was Dennis Jernigan.  He will be releasing his new album "First Love" at Prince of Peace on Friday evening. The Lord is reminding Texas, the Nation, you and me that He is drawing us close to Him.  He is re-igniting our first love for Him as He demonstrates His passionate and extravagant love for us.

Secondly, Arthur Burk of Sapphire Leadership Group contacted us and asked if they could present a seminar on "How to be a Noble
Subject when Your Government is Dysfunctional."  The Lord is mantling us, not only with His love, but with His nobility.  We are citizens of heaven.  We are kings and priests of His kingdom. The Lord declared this to me in my previous blog: 
"Don't linger. Don't wait. We have a great adventure ahead of us. I'm taking you to places
you've never been. I'm walking with you into the great season of your life. Don't be afraid to let go of some things that you cherish. They have prepared you for this journey, but come on - let's walk!"

As I walked I saw a whole new set of armor placed on me. I don't know how to describe it. It is brilliant in color. It glows as crystal but looks pure like gold. It is strong and impenetrable.

He said, "Wherever you walk you will strengthen the land. You will release light into the atmosphere no matter how dark. There is a troop with you. You are not alone. They are armored as you are for that has been your desire. We walk together. My kingdom is here. My will is done."
We are loved.  We are mantled with nobility.  Let us walk with God! He's turning us like a key in His hand to unlock the destiny of a state and nation.

Two Visitations

The following experiences or visitations took place as I was on the flight back from Washington DC at All Tribes DC on October 21, 2016 and at the Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network (HAPN) gathering in Oklahoma on October 25-29, 2016.

The first part refers back to a pair of dreams that I had had almost 20 years ago where the Lord made it clear that I was running ahead of him and moving in my own strategies. The time has changed.

The main part of what I'm sharing will actually refer to the reference regarding a whirlwind or hurricane at the end of the visitation. I believe it confirms and ties together with Chuck Pierce's word regarding the wind being released now that has been held in heaven for the last eight years.

I also referred to a word that he gave to me earlier this year: "I am bringing my people out of Babylon." We are entering the season of restoration, victory and celebration. Last night, I believe that we saw another indicator of this victory and of the wind when the Chicago Cubs won their first pennant after a 71 year wait. The exiles started returning from Babylon after the 70th year. There were tremendous celebrations and restored hope in the faces of the players and fans as they won last night in Chicago, the Windy City.

With Jesus (October 21, 2016) at 33,000 feet.
It's been a long time but I'm walking with Jesus on the seashore of Galilee. We've been here before. I remember him stopping as I walked on. He was stooping down and picking up rocks- challenging me to come back to Him rather than journeying on alone.

But this time I was the one who stopped. I was wanting to linger. I was wanting to toss rocks in the water, but He was walking ahead. He turned to me and beckoned me to follow.

"Don't linger. Don't wait. We have a great adventure ahead of us. I'm taking you to places you've never been. I'm walking with you into the great season of your life. Don't be afraid to let go of some things that you cherish. They have prepared you for this journey, but come on - let's walk!"

As I walked I saw a whole new set of armor placed on me. I don't know how to describe it. It is brilliant in color. It glows as crystal but looks pure like gold. It is strong and impenetrable.

He said, "Wherever you walk you will strengthen the land. You will release light into the atmosphere no matter how dark. There is a troop with you. You are not alone. They are armored as you are for that has been your desire. We walk together. My kingdom is here. My will is done."

He is embracing me and all of His life force is encompassing me. Not only am I feeling strength, passion and newness but all infirmity is melting away. I breath it out from me. I speak it into the atmosphere. Holy. Beautiful. Whole. I'm to commune with Him.

I communed on the plane by eating cookies. Beautiful food. "Taste and see that the Lord is good (beautiful)." “Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him! Fear the LORD, you his godly people, for those who fear him will have all they need. Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the LORD will lack no good thing.” Psalm ‭34:8-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I drank red wine which the flight attendant gave to me with no cost. "Come and eat. Come and drink with no cost." ““Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink— even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk— it’s all free!” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬
 

As I ate and drank I felt impurities leaving me. It is His body. It is His blood. He strengthens and cleanses me.

As we walk on in the visitation, we go up an incline as though on steps but there is no exertion on my part. With each step I feel more strength. I briefly look nostalgically behind me. He smiles at me knowing that was is behind me has disappeared. Not gone for it has set the stage, but disappeared for it no longer is my story. The story is being written as we walk. A new chapter with each step. Each step is a victory.

Each step I feel something hitting me. It seems as though they are arrows or spears, but they do not prosper against me. I see trials and turbulence around me but it vanishes as Jesus and I and the troop walk on.

He declares, "Every step you take is a possession of the Kingdom being taken away from the enemy."

I notice for the first time that we are surrounded by a host of angel warriors. They have always been there and they will walk with us. We are together like a whirlwind, a hurricane of God's glory and presence moving across the land.

I realized that I'm sitting in Row 12 (Governmental) Seat A (Apostolic) on Flight 2237.

“You have made a wide path for my feet to keep them from slipping.” (2 Samuel‬ ‭22:37‬ ‭NLT)‬‬

“Jesus replied, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’” (Matthew‬ ‭22:37‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

“For the time has come for this prophecy about me to be fulfilled: ‘He was counted among the rebels.’ Yes, everything written about me by the prophets will come true.”” (Luke‬ ‭22:37‬ ‭NLT‬‬)


This is overwhelming! O Lord Jesus! What was so amazing about this time with him was this. We walked together. We grasped each other's hand. I felt his arm around me. Thank you Jesus. I love you!

Later as I revisited this visitation I realized that we were in the eye of the storm and literally, with Jesus, a part of the storm. The wind and we are as one.

Tom Schlueter

Here is Chucks' word:

"For the last eight years I have been blowing winds in the heavens. Winds have been stirring and stirring and stirring in My heavens.  But now those winds are released to come into the earth realm.  What has been stirring in Heaven will now blow in the earth.  Brace yourself!  Brace yourself!  Brace yourself! Brace yourself!  For the winds that will now blow are the winds I’ve been holding back over the last eight years.  Because I’ve been holding them back and you’ve been asking for them to blow earlier, NOW I will release them. I am acting on how you have sought Me in the last eight years. 



"These winds will begin to gather an army of those that have been faithful and those that will now gather into a place they didn’t even know they belonged.  The winds of adversity will now produce an army (of whom) people will say, ‘It is the LORD’s army that has changed the course of history!’ Tonight, and beginning this week, you will be bringing the turning point winds into the earth and rearranging the course of what is to become. Nations will begin now in their realignment with other nations, but I will blow off the fa├žade that has been holding you captive. Because you have gathered here in this turning point state, now the turning point winds will come.  What I’ve held back for eight years, I must now release.  What goes on through May (as you begin to honor Me, and walk with Me, and gather with Me) will create a nation that has been covered over by the enemy’s hand. The winds that now blow in the earth will cause the hand of the enemy that has been controlling the movement of strategy in the earth in this nation to be seen. No longer will the enemy have an upper hand in this land!"

Blessings,
Chuck D. Pierce



While at HAPN he visited me again. 

October 28, 2016

In his book, Beautiful Outlaw, John Eldridge asked what motive or word would you use to describe Jesus.  The first word that came to my heart was "diamond." The Lord told me that He has many facets. Beauty. Brilliance. Each brings a new view or reflection of who He is. The diamond reflects love but also the sharpness to cut class. At that I realized that the armor, which I could not describe, in my first visitation was made of diamond. We are armored with Him.
