Here is a word for the church.  Let’s not be complacent with the opportunities that we have.  This is a divine moment that will make history, a continuation of ACTS.  It’s time to rise and be:
“How did we think we could just live in a city that is on sea level, a city that every time it rains it floods — it’s like we are tempting the water but never jumping it, it’s like we see it but we forgot how to swim. How did we think we could get by living in the holy city where going to church was fed to us through bloodlines, but the presence was always forgotten? Maybe we kept coming back because we were never edified, just always left hungry, filling those holes with temporary pleasure things that would never remain. Charleston is a destination that people flock to, people run here, but maybe it’s time that they start traveling here for something better than our southern hospitality  and sweet tea. We are temping the flood gates of heaven, we have dormant gifts and destinies that are being forgotten every single day. We are tempting the Holy Spirit but never giving him all of us. We are tempting the lord and our destinies but only go to him when we need something, never saying thank you. Charleston was one of the first places to start the war, and maybe it’s time we start another one, another war because the devil has no power, he has no rule and no reign but lately we have forgotten to stand up against the enemy, we have forgotten to fight, to prepare generation after generation for this battle. He’s coming, and we need to be ready. It is time to be warm, to set fires, be shine, to be the light, it is time to drown in his presence.”

The Great Cooper River Bridge Run (April 2, 2016)
While I was listening to the announcement regarding the quadriplegics who would walk the bridge with the assistance of a body suit God was sharing with me that this is the time when He is bringing the God-solutions to Charleston in many forms – inventions, medical advancements, radical approaches to on-going challenges, etc. Now is the time that these solutions are coming. Now is the time for us to be alert to the solutions He’s giving us and ready to enact them.
When I came to the foot of the bridge not only was the sky clear but also the sun began to shine brightly. At that moment God said, “I will move the heavens for this city. What concerns her concerns Me. Charleston has My heart.” Upon entering the downtown streets I also noticed the increased police presence from a wider variety of safety and protection agencies than in past years that I’ve participated. His peace and protection are hovering over this beautiful city in a greater way than ever before.
Not realizing the smoothness, and thus extreme slickness after a rain, of the metal expansion grates in the bridge I “water-skated” across the first grate that I came to and almost landed on my butt. Through this God was showing me that soon Charleston is going to have many moments of feeling as if she is out of control and has lost her footing. The truth of the matter is that this is great! No one is “in control” in Charleston except God. He is going to use these “out of control” moments to show His sovereignty to Charleston’s leaders on all seven mountains so that they come to acknowledge Him and His control. God always has His hand on our city, and she will land on her feet every time that she chooses to honor God during the slide.

The Prodigals are Returning Home!
To make a rather 5 year long story short, my husband and I have lived in the reality of the parable of the prodigal.  After living in a Christian home all his life and being trained in the ways of God, our oldest son decided that this was “just not for him”.  He despised the Word and declared that he wanted nothing to do with God.  Though we were heartbroken, we made an agreement to maintain peace in our home and our lives.  If that meant our child leaving then, so be it.  Through years of  drug abuse, alcohol abuse, promiscuity, immoral living, lying, deceit, stealing, and complete disrespect and disobedience, we loved our son and looked forward to the day of his return- not just to our home, but to the Kingdom. As we took away his house keys the day he left, we also changed the code to our garage door opener.  The code was 0323, the date of the day he left (March 23).  The numbers mean: 0- opportunity; 3- divine unity of the Father, Son, and Spirit; 23- death and resurrection. Everyday as I opened my garage from a morning’s run, I would declare, “I take this opportunity to be in agreement with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  My son who is dead will live again!”
During 2015 the Lord spoke to me and said that my son would be returning in 2016.  I have held on to that word.  Today, January 15, 2016 my son came home.  The numbers mean: 1- singleness of mind with Christ (January also means gateway- beginning), 15- means new direction, 2016- redemption and unconditional love.  By maintaining the mind of Christ and not doubting, I saw my son take a new direction.  He will continue to walk in this way as it will lead to his ultimate redemption through the unconditional love.  That love will be extended through us, his natural family and the Kingdom family.
This word is not just for me and my house, but for yours as well.  This is the year we will see our prodigals come home.  Get ready with open arms.  Make your party plans!  Give the caterers the menu ideas.  It is really happening!  Your kids belong in the Kingdom.  They have always had a place and now they are returning to their right positions.
We still have a time of restoration and a process of reconciliation to walk through, but ……………..my son has returned home.  Do not doubt what you are reading.  Even now, your heart is wanting to believe and your mind cannot comprehend that this could be true.  But again, I urge you, do not doubt- YOUR CHILD IS COMING HOME.  Remember, it’s a good time to be you!
Though China is a BEAR, the Kingdom is a BULL!
Do not be afraid of what you may hear where the market is concerned. Yes, if China crashes so does the rest of the world. But, remember, we are not of this world. China may be a BEAR, but the Kingdom is a BULL. This is the time to prosper. For those who have been heeding the words over the past couple of years and have stored extra for this time, you will reap a wonderful harvest. You will prosper greatly. You will inherit the earth, land, and properties. So, do not be dismayed. Do not be afraid. This is your moment to help and uplift those who were not as prepared. You will impart into them the knowledge you learned and wisdom gained from the last crash experience. Allow the love of Jesus to flow through you. Give to those in need and speak peace to their storms. In you, they will see Jesus. Their Encounter with Him will come through your calm assurance. Now, laugh at the days to come. You are ready. You were made for a time such as this!
Prophetic Response to Recent Prophetic Alerts
In response to the recent prophetic alerts that have been sent to Charleston and shared across the nation about potential planned attacks and disasters on our Holy City, we the Prophetic Office under the region’s Apostolic Leadership, would like to say, “Thank you”. We truly appreciate the obedience you have demonstrated and the support you have offered through prayers, encouragement, and personal contacts.
The dreams and visions are all too familiar to those of us who have been watchmen and seers in this part of the nation for decades. God has spoken to us for over 15 years concerning these very things and the schemes that have been devised against our beloved city and her people. Through divine instructions we have been running/walking the Charleston Peninsula covering her continually and guarding her. Our beautiful bridge that links Mt. Pleasant to downtown Charleston has also been a canvased area of our prophetic athletes. Running seems to be our method of defense here. It is a standing joke among the prophets that the initiation into the office requires running a marathon! (Actually, several of us have).
God has spoken clearly to us that we are to run toward the danger and not from it. His presence is in us and therefore the light expels the darkness everywhere we step. We have taken His word seriously and have ran hard and continuously in order to activate it, keeping our city safe. We are not afraid. No weapon forged against us will prosper. And, what is coming, is only to bring glory to God and Heaven to Earth. The Bride in Charleston has faced many challenges this past year (2015) and has passed each test. She is prepared for what is coming. In that moment, she will shine bright and the glory of the Lord will rise upon her. Healings, miracles, and wondrous things will be reported as once again, the eyes of the world are upon her. This will ignite a fire throughout the East Coast and will spread to the Northern States including Washington, DC.
These are exciting times. Your confirmation has only heightened our senses and we stand ready for the wonderful things God is about to do. Thank you again for your support. We are honored that God would send reinforcements. Charleston will be all that God has destined her to be. Her name means “Free Man”. She was meant from the beginning of her establishment to demonstrate freedom, liberty, and prosperity. This time she is doing it right. It’s a good time to be us!
We send blessings to you and look forward to sharing with you the marvelous events that are even now on the horizon.
Words for Hawthorne City Mobile Home Park
The first word that came to me as I started running the community was “comfort.” Then as I started to make my way towards the back I felt the Holy Spirit say, “I am here with them, in the comfort of their homes.” Everything starts in their hearts, through the response to His voice. He is stirring living waters within to spark a desire to know Him. We will see hearts be more receptive like never before. They will begin to see His love is different and will never fail. There is a drawing to come near.
Isaiah 40:1
“Comfort, oh comfort, my people,” says your God.
Matthew 5:4
“Blessed [forgiven, refreshed by God’s grace] are those who mourn [over their sins and repent], for they will be comforted [when the burden of sin is lifted].
2 Corinthians 1:3 – 5
All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. We have plenty of hard times that come from following the Messiah, but no more so than the good times of his healing comfort – we get a full measure of that, too.

As I walked through Hawthorne City I sensed that the Holy Spirit is hovering over this precious community. There is a tangible peace that reigns in this place and that resists uneasiness and confusion. God’s presence is overshadowing and protecting its residents.
Very soon this community will be one that sees the change that revival brings.  Many of its residents will accept Christ and begin to walk in relationship with Him.  In addition, residents who already know Christ will enter into a deeper relationship with Him and know Him better than they ever have before. Because of His presence the entire community will experience a shift in thought and attitude. This shift will be evidenced through the increase in Hawthorne City’s unity among its residents. They will begin to care for one another and look out for one another on a greater scale than ever before. Hawthorne City will become a model of the Church in action in Charleston.

Ezekial 12: 22-28
In this passage the Lord is telling Ezekiel that from now on there will be no wait time between when he speaks and when he performs what he has spoken.
We know we have been living in the days of acceleration but what’s next?
I believe we will move from here to the fullness of time.  A time when the things we have waited for suddenly begin to happen and when God speaks new things they will come as quickly as he says them.
I believe this is coming quickly and may already be manifesting.  The Lord told me we would see this in the mountain of government very soon and that would open the way of the other mountains.
Already this month we have seen two major victories in the abortion laws in South Carolina and Oklahoma.
Pastor Mark recently spoke about the reaper over taking the sower.
In my quiet  time last week the Lord hlighted the verses in Ezekiel especially. In verse 23b…say to them “The days are at hand,  and the fulfillment of every vision.
In verse 28 “None of my words will be postponed anymore, but the word which I speak will be done.
These verses were for Israel’s judgement at the time. I feel however that he is speaking this in our time for good, for encouragement,  and for understanding of the season we are moving full stream ahead into.
Be encouraged, your promises have not been forgotten.

Joshua 3:  Crossing the Jordan
Today we cross over.  The Lord will make Himself known in your life in a miraculous way.  He will part the waters so that you can cross on dry land.  Be alert of the “mind games”.  This is a tactic that your foe will use against you as you make your way closer to take possession of your promise.  Do not listen to the lies or jeers.  He is in fear because of YOU.  Why?  Because what God is doing in you and through you is more powerful than him. Be very bold and courageous.   If he can stop you at the Jordan, he will stop you from taking possession.  Do not be afraid, follow the Ark of the Covenant.  That is the Covenant God made with you.  What is it?  What did you and He come into “Agreement” about?
In the Ark were 3 things:  The Rod of Aaron, the Tablets of Law (The Ten Commandments), and a Jar of Manna.  These represented the following:
Aaron’s rod- the miracles (this was used to perform the miracles before Pharaoh in Eygpt)
The Tablets of Law– God’s Word it must forever be in our hearts and on our lips.  Confess it- DO NOT SPEAK NEGATIVE.
Jar of Manna- God’s provision, This is a God thing.  We have to totally depend on Him.  He will do far greater things then we can imagine.
Allow that Agreement to stand in the middle of this river.  It has the power to drive the waters back.  It is the “Yes and Amen”.  Again, do not be afraid to cross.  Any lie or jeer that the enemy is throwing at you today consider it a “rock”.  What do we do with the rocks?  BUILD A MONUMENT! The Lord has done great things for us!  Remember, if we suffer with Him we will REIGN with Him.
Get ready to REIGN.  Do not stop.  Take up the Covenant and cross over. Remember, it’s a good time to be you!

August 11,2016    heart
I’ve been taking in what the next 3 days is going to entail and having an open heart to allow the Lord to do what he wants to do in me as well as corporately. I’m currently at work and I’m asking the Lord what is the next 3 days going to look like concerning the circumcision personally as well as corporately. I kept hearing every lie that you have believed against your spiritual authority will be uprooted and removed. The spiritual covering over us are a covering that does not leave people behind unless they want to be left.The next thing I heard was I’m going to circumcise the lies that the leadership has believed about one another through clashes, gossip and murmuring. A culture of honor has been estabilished as the core value of the house and competition, comparision, and self promotion will not prosper it will be burned away from the vine as in John 15. The last thing I heard was I’m
I’m going to circumcise the lies that you have believed about God. You are not forgotten, barren, and incompetent. Psalms 16:11 will come alive like neverbefore and you will sustain decades of vibrant hearts if you align yourself with this truth ” You make known to me the path of life. You will fill me with the joy of your presence with eternal pleasures at your right hand” (Psalms 16:11).I am truly ready for this and for our corporate body to experience this. The next 3 nights we will agree with this through prayer and intercession as well as taking communion. Thank you Angela for sharing this and getting us ready to cross over.
