FIX YOUR THOUGHTS

The Bible tells us “to fix our thoughts”As the dictionary says to fix something is to fasten it securely in one place or position. Many times I have thought it is like setting the thermostat of our homes at a certain temperature so it will remain there steadfast as long as we leave it there.Likewise, we are to fix our eyes and our thoughts upon Jesus daily. It is critical that our thoughts are fixed on His ways, His words, His actions, His nature, and His power. We are to constantly discipline our thoughts. We must practice daily to securely fasten our thoughts to line up with His heart and mind. We must remember constantly what Holy Spirit has taught us through the Word and through the life experiences in our relationship with Jesus.

“Fix your thoughts on what is true, honorable, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received fro me_ everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you. “(Phil 4:8-9)

Another powerful scripture for your thoughts is 2 Corinth 10:5 “casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.”

 God’s word is alive and you can experience it not just read it.  “If we believe it we can do the Word and it works. “ The Word is eternal and is the only absolute truth. Our minds are the battlefield. The devil fights us the most through our thoughts.  Many times thoughts come that may be partially true but contain lies that would hinder us greatly, even change the direction of our lives. Sometimes we have thoughts we don’t know why or where they come from. Take these thoughts into captivity with Jesus and let Him take care of them. Visualize putting them in the Jail where Jesus holds the keys. He will let you know anything you need to know from there. Then rest and trust Him for He is always faithful.

The enemy will always give you thoughts to try to plant some darkness in your heart.  And lies or darkness that plants in your heart will defile your purity and defeat your victory walk in Jesus. Therefore, The word instructs us to “Keep your heart with all diligence for out of springs the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23 NKJV. “Guard your hearts above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” NLV

 We should always ask Holy Spirit to keep us in His light of revelation and discernment.  It is good to let this scripture be our constant prayer.

 Psalm 19:14

AMP: “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable and pleasing in Your sight,
O Lord, my [firm, immovable] rock and my Redeemer. “

TPT: “So may the words of my mouth, my meditation-thoughts,
and every movement of my heart be always pure and pleasing,
acceptable before your eyes, my only Redeemer, my Protector-God.

I saw Great Grace and Abiding Glory standing at the door of 2019.

Early in January of this year, as I was praying, the Lord spoke to me this Statement; “Grace and Glory are standing at the door of 2019 ready to walk with those whose hearts fear the Lord and are seeking His will to be done on earth.”

Then as I prayed I saw like an allegory type vision: It was a heavenly scene and Jesus entered the scene dressed in brilliant light. I knew Holy Spirit was present as well for He was holding a scroll. It was the beginning of a Heavenly ceremony.  It is difficult to describe this but it seemed that out from the Holy Spirit came Grace standing personified. Then came glory in the same manner and they stood together side by side. Then the ceremony continued and a scroll was opened. Grace and Glory were being commissioned into a covenant union for the purpose of a great manifestation of God’s Kingdom on the earth in presence and power through the body of Christ. I could see that Grace was carrying the fire of God and Glory was carrying the presence and heart of God. Wherever Grace went Glory would be there too. They walked and moved together, a union of covenant power sent out from Holy Spirit to the body of Christ. I knew this was something Father God was orchestrating. It was for us to take hold of and appropriate into our lives this year.

Grace is the unmerited Blessing and favor of God in us and on us. His grace enables us to be more than we are; His grace anoints us for our assignments and missions, and teaches us to move in the supernatural. His grace trains us how to live godly in this world (Titus 2: 11-12), His grace enlightens us, illuminates us, strengthens us, enables His gifts to move through us. His grace reveals truth and mysteries of God to us.

His grace is sufficientfor all that we might face in this life. We carry his grace and it supplies God’s ability when we need it. His grace is sufficient to perform all the will of God through any difficulties. We are to glory in our infirmities and difficulties for in them His power will rest on us. (2 Corinthians 12:8-10.)                                                                                                                        “And God is able to make ALL grace abound toward you, that you, ALWAYS, having ALL sufficiency in ALL things, may have an abundance for EVERY good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8 “WOW

More grace is given to us every time we humble ourselves before the Almighty God (2 Peter 5:5-6) for we know that without Him we can do nothing of eternal value.

Glory is the manifested presence of the Lord Jesus. Jesus present “with us” is Glory. He is always in us as we are in Him, but His abiding glory is when His presence is manifested in habitation with us not just visitation. In His habitation Glory we can operate in His ease, His rest, at all times, practicing to stay in this place in all we do.

When we can live in His glory it means He will be the one moving in us, through us and with us, performing His way, and uniquely drawing others to Himself like a magnet. We step aside and let Him move as He breathes on people around us and manifests His power. We are just being His clothes. Selah

His glory presence is like a cloud we can live in, ascend into heavenly places, which bypasses time to encase the past, present and future. It is gained or acquired in the your intimate private tent of meeting with the Lord. Exodus 33 is the best scripture story to teach us. Read the chapter carefully. Moses was a friend of God; He went aside to his tent of meeting away from the camp to meet with God. Every time the cloud of glory would come over the tent, others would see it and be drawn into worship.

God spoke to Moses face to face. Moses was to lead the millions of people on to the Promised Land. Moses says to God, “Who are you sending with me Lord for You have said I have found GRACE in you sight?” And the Lord says, “My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest” Then Moses says what we all need to say, Lord if your Presence does not go with us then let us not go, for how will others know that You are with us, that we are your people, that have found GRACE in you sight. Lord, show us Your GLORY. The Lord promised Moses to let His goodness (JESUS) pass by him and to hide him in the cleft of the Rock which He passed by. This is a great picture of His Grace & Glory working together. God is ready to do this again in a fresh powerful way for His people.

We are to take hold of this truth and pursue the Lord for this union of a powerful new impartation of His Grace & Glory for 2019 and I would advise that we are to receive it first thing every morning before we rise for the day. I pray all who take time to read this will receive this word by faith and experience the manifestation in real life.

Father we say, who are you sending with us this year? We ask that Grace and Glory would go with us in 2019 and walk with us daily, abiding in us and with us as we stay in intimate communion with You, Holy Spirit. Grace and Glory abide with us as we live face to face with Jesus. Let our eyes, ears, and heart be covered with the light of Your presence that we my Know, see and speak as you direct bringing the manifestation of the kingdom of God in our world. In the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord we pray and believe.

SHUT THE DOOR

Many come in to the Secret Place with the Lord, but forget to shut the door. We may miss what is most important for us. We need to remember to shut the door. Matthew 6:6 “But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private.”

I believe that some of shutting the door is just a constant consciousness effort each time we pray of closing all the cares of life out of your mind and determining not to let anything or anyone distract you from your special time with the Lord no matter how long it is or short. Always it is the quality not necessarily the quantity.
I will just share some practical and simple things that might be helpful reminders of how to shut the door. Sometimes we know these things but just need reminded. I know I do.
So first of all you may want to shut off your phone. If you open your technology and connect with social media it might steal from the time you want to give Jesus. Just work it out so you don’t miss the time with your Creator. You also may need to get up a little earlier or stay up at night for the time. There are days I will skip the noon meal, find a quiet place and pray. If you are home get comfortable place to pray and even shut a real door if possible. Have just your bible and a pen and paper with you. Set this time as best you can when you can be alert and are least apt to be needed or interrupted.
Whenever and wherever you pray He is there with you because He is always faithful. The Lord loves to hear your voice so sing or just thank and praise, as He is as close as the breath you breathe. Romans 10:8 “The message is very close at hand; It is on your lips and in your heart.” Practice and perfect the art of being still in His presence and tune your ears into His voice. Ask Him to show you what is on His heart and mind. Ask Him who and what you need to bring before Him, because if you are like me there are too many and too much to remember. Write things down. Every day ask and trust faithful Holy Spirit to speak to you about the prayer needs of the day and for the grace to love and be obedient. This way His burden is light and His yoke easy because you will be moving with Holy Spirit. When I quit striving to do things right and just lean into Holy Spirit it is like the EASE of moving in water.
Lastly, when we pray we must pray IN FAITH and WITH FATIH. That is praying what God says and thinks and then believing it.                                                       Janee Hawks

MOTHERS

MOTHERS

Another name to call Mothers could well be “Grace & Mercy”

Woman is meant to be the image of the female side of God for sure. She reveals the heart of God as not only a Father but as a Mother.

God is Grace and God is Mercy. Grace and Mercy are the warm arms of God that hold us secure and wrap around us with love throughout our lives. His arms pick us up and give us a push forward and upward to our purpose.

When God took that rib from Adam and made a woman He mixed the golden threads of Grace and Mercy together and knitted it into the heart of the woman to be a Mother.

God graces a Mother with a tender heart toward all those she has birthed and nurtured; some are natural children, some may be adopted and some spiritual children. She empowers her children to become all they were meant to be. She is gentle but strong, She is forgiving but wise, She is patient, but progressive. She is kind but firm. She is sometimes true friend but foe. She has played the role in her child’s life of whatever they needed at the time, be it playmate, nurse, trainer, teacher, guide, counselor,, friend, or best cheerleader. Her heart knows great love, but great pain. She carries but releases. She gives her children security but wings. She holds on tight but lets go freely.

Whether she is a new mother, young mother, busy mother, lonely mother, unhealthy or older mother she is always a MOTHER. She is always in Her role.

Respect and Honor should always go to all MOTHERS!                                                           MOTHERS are an image of the arms of God, Grace and Mercy.

A Tribute to my 3 Daughters and Daughter in Love; Ronda, Robin, Ranee and Melody.

They all so gracefully and wonderfully fit the role of a God fearing mother. Their lives are decorated with the blessing of sacrifice and kindness. They effortlessly give and forgive, persevering, trusting, and loving their children unconditionally. They guide with patience, hopeful and believing the best. They see beyond the natural to help win the battles for their children. As wise mothers they have seen beyond the outward to the inward, and have been the greatest encouragement for all their children to find the treasure within. They all four give of themselves endlessly without considering their own needs first. They take their role as Mothers seriously before God and I am so thankful today that they have never given up trying to be the kind of Mother their children each need. I thank God for them today and for the 12 Grand’s I have because of their grit, courage and faithfulness.                                                             Janee Hawks

THE PATH OF HUMBLE AUTHORITY

It was somewhere between heaven and earth I was being caught up into the vision which I will call “The Path of Humble Authority“ This vision was not just for me only, but was meant to be shared with the body of Christ especially to those who long to be a true disciple of Christ. So put yourself in this vision and see that Jesus is drawing you to this humble authority.

VISION: I first saw an opening, then a path going upward to heaven that looked like a brilliant red carpet. I knew the Lord had done this and was inviting me to go up. As I started up I just knew this red carpet was created from a lifestyle on earth of forgiveness, repentance and purity through Christ’s blood. It was amazing; as Jesus made known to me that heaven’s red carpet is earth’s bloody path. When I reached the top I could see the Father was there but I could only see His glorious light. I also saw Ricky my little son sitting with Jesus and smiling at me as if to say I watch you and am waiting for you.

Then Jesus walked up to me as to greet me. He held a beautiful red robe in His hands, which He placed on me. As I felt the robe on my body I knew it symbolized a life drenched in His blood. Faith in Jesus shed blood created this robe to always cover, to cleanse and to give His very own life and strength. The Lord motioned to me to come sit with Him. Before I could sit down in my own personal chair He came to me and placed a gold chain around my neck. I just knew the gold chain was giving me the authority to rule and reign in my personal inheritance and I felt the life-giving strength of the beautiful blood-red robe around my shoulders as it covered me.

Then Jesus reached out for my hand and placed a ring on my finger that had the imprint of the face of a Lion on it. This ring belonged to the Lion of the tribe of Judah. I knew it was His ring given for me to use in His behalf, by the authority of His name. I was overcome with His presence as Jesus said to me, “I have placed my roar in you that you will prevail and I will lead you.” I knew this was a place of my being seated with Christ in heavenly places as is revealed in Scripture. Jesus sat down at the right hand of Father. He held His scepter in His right hand. He reached out His scepter to me and I touched it. Now I am hearing” Ask and It shall be given.” I saw the words “if you abide in Me and my words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. John 15:7 Suddenly I saw a fire close to the throne and Jesus said to step into it, so I did. It was a holy fire and I felt its power. When I stepped out of the fire there was a blue flame resting on me.

The scene suddenly changed and I was back on the earth. I was walking on a narrow dusty road. I was wearing a brown robe with a large hood on it. You could hardly see my face. It seemed I was walking hidden in this brown robe. I knew it was a robe of humility and hiddenness that a lowly servant would wear, but also it was for protection. The Lord said to me I have shown you now how I want you to live your life. You will rule and reign in My Kingdom matters and operate your life on the earth from My heart. You are here seated with Me in heavenly places with all My authority for all I have destined for you, but you must walk out your life on the earth as a servant of all with my humility. Then you will be hidden with me in the Fathers will. I have given you a Kingdom….I saw a shoreline …and nations. I did hear more but for now I feel the Lord would have you pray on this vision for what He would say to you and add to you.

INTERPRETING THE VISION

“THE BLOODY PATH WE WALK AND THE BLOODY ROBE WE WEAR.”

This is the robe: “For if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.” I Jo. 1:7

 This is the red carpet: We can come boldly to Holiest by the blood of Jesus. It’s a new and living way or path. Hebrews 10:19-20

 The Blood of Christ is authority and Power: For there are three that bear witness in heaven, The Father, the Word and the Holy Sprit and these there are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth; the Spirit, the water, and the blood, and these three are as one. I John 5:7-8

Let me explain what the Lord revealed to me from the verse: When the Spirit, the cleansing word, and faith in the blood of Christ come together to witness on the earth it will align with Heavens witness of the Father, the Word (Jesus) and Holy Spirit. This alignment is power and glory for Jesus happens and heaven comes to earth. The blood is an integral part of heaven and earth meeting together as is the word and the Spirit. Therefore we rejoice that in life and in death Jesus provided “the bloody path we humbly walk and the royal bloody robe we gladly wear.” We boldly thank Jesus for sending Holy Spirit into our spirit giving us the authority and power to live out this life victorious in His glorious light. I will “walk it and wear it” with faith and hope. There is wonder working power in the Blood of the Lamb of God, The Lord Jesus Christ, and the Son of God.

RULE FROM A HEAVENLY PLACE WITH CHRIST

 God made us alive together with Christ and raised us up together and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, far above all other powers. Ephesians 2:5-6; 1:20-23 This is NOW beloved.

The “scepter” has meaning in the book of Esther as she gave all to stand before the King. If she found favor the king would allow her to touch his scepter and ask what she desired. Esther 5:2-3 This is amazing grace

Daniel and Joseph were given” gold chains around their necks’ when they were appointed to rule and reign in the Kingdom. (Daniel 5:20;Genesis 41:42) We are given this gold chain to rule and reign in the Kingdom as we are given our own personal inheritance on the earth. Jesus Christ is the King of kings. We were born to rule.

Revelation 1: 5-6 “and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever.”

“The Holy Fire and blue flame” could pertain to Revelation 5:5 says Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne,, which are the seven Sprits of God. The Seven spirits of God are the seven spirits resting on Christ in prophesied in Isaiah 11:1-3 which also rest on us as we abide in Christ. Also the hottest purest fire will burn blue. Blue is symbolic of heavenly fire.

PRAYER:  Father I ask in the name of Jesus Christ your Son for Holy Spirit to give the understanding and the revelation of all that you are saying to your people and ignite them with the power of this vision as you have shown me. Release the power of this vision deep within every one who reads it with an open heart toward You Father. Give us the grace to walk in the humble authority you died to give. Do Holy Spirit what only You can do.                                                                                                       Janee Hawks

The Vision of Trumpets of Zion ministry for the Nations

The Vision of Trumpets of Zion ministry for the  Nations

Africa and America or any Nation must be birthed into The Kingdom of God and follow this Kingdom vision to see the nations change.

The pure gospel of Jesus Christ is the gospel of the Kingdom of God that He preached, taught and demonstrated, and then sent the Holy Spirit to empower His church to do the same. The Holy Spirit is the governor of the Kingdom who lives with us and in us to empower us. He alone can impart this new culture, the language, the government, power and agape love of a new Kingdom to us. The Holy Spirit only can secure in us the commonwealth, and unity of one King. The church must serve and steward the theocracy of Jesus Christ organized and protected by the revelation of the Holy Spirit. This is foundation and we add all the truths Jesus and His Apostles taught to form the full house of God. The Kingdom starts within us. It is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. It must be solid, mature, full and running over within us first before we can release such power as Jesus and the apostles did and even greater as He said. This is the greatest need for any culture today. We, of all races and nations must transform to the character of the King and the culture of the Kingdom of God. Jesus is coming back soon to set His Kingdom up on the earth and the whole earth will be filled with the knowledge of God as the waters cover the sea.  It will not be the church of just much religious activity but rather the church in obedience to God’s covenant and on fire with a constant abandoned love for the Lord that will carry the presence and the power of His Kingdom to this world now.

Trumpets of Zion has a Kingdom Vision to prepare the way of the Lord, for the King of Kings to return and set up His Kingdom on the earth. Religion has always caused war, persecution and death. The soul of man loves religion that is why there is so much of it. But our spirits are only birthed and built by the Holy Spirit and the word of the Kingdom of God. This Kingdom is “the rest of God” that moves with His ease. Man must cease from his own works to enter this rest of moving with the governor of the Kingdom. The Kingdom is a heart Kingdom, inside out, and produces citizens of God-likeness. When the church moves in the purity and power of the Kingdom truths, then the Greater Glory destined for this time in history will come. That is when all things will be possible and the whole body of Christ will do great exploits on the earth. The Kingdom of God wants to come on the earth as it is in heaven. The church is to hold the keys to open the gates of heaven for the King of Glory to come in. The greatest enemy to the Kingdom of God is the iniquity of religious pride and selfish ambition. Religion wants to kill the move of the Holy Spirit, shut up heaven and throw away the keys.

I believe  God impressed on my heart that TOZ  is an underwater ministry, meaning it is an apostolic ministry that can only be sustained by the breath of God, “THE HOLY SPIRIT.” It is not to move in the traditions of man, but in the fresh move of God. It is to move in the “DEEP” with Discipleship, Empowerment, Evangelism, and Prophecy all working together to change a nation. You must first change hearts and lives to change a nation. “Not by might, not by power, but BY MY SPIRIT, SAYS THE LORD. Jesus said, SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM and then all the rest will be added. It is the Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. Our prayer for Trumpets of Zion “here in US” and for Trumpets of Zion  “there in Kenya” and throughout Africa is that God will shake, root up, tear down, and pull out everything in these ministries that is not birthed in the Kingdom, following Kingdom vision and empowered by Holy Spirit in hungry, humble, surrendered hearts. The Kingdom is for the pure of heart with clean hands. Our God is a consuming fire and may He burn up all that does not please Him.  God’s plan is great for us all!   We must stay solid in what God has begun as He will complete it.

In His great love,

HEAVINESS By Vince Hawks

HEAVINESS

When I returned from a morning walk today, I thought I needed to share the following:

 I proceeded down the sidewalk as I normally do and began praying about numerous issues that Janee and I are aware of.  They include issues concerning some close family members, very good friends, God called ministries, the nation and the world.

I began feeling a heaviness as I continued praying, not physically but in my spirit.  I continued and completed the walk of about 40 minutes and the heaviness continued.  For those who may not be totally aware of my basic personality, I am a glass ½ full type person, I usually at least try to see the positive aspects of circumstances and situations.  So this has kind of got my attention…as looked at these scriptures and the heaviness lifted.

Jesus said in John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me you might have peace…”.  So what “things” is Jesus talking about?  Earlier in the chapter, verse 16, Jesus said  “A little while and you shall not see me…’  Jesus is telling the disciples that change is coming and nobody really is prepared for or likes change.  Jesus is saying this event, though the prophets foretold it numerous times in the Old Testament, will still take you by surprise. Jesus is telling them to prepare for an event that will rock their world.  That event was his impending death on the cross.  Jesus is saying that in spite of the “heaviness” you will no doubt feel you can find peace in me.

Verse 16 continues “…and again, a little while, and you shall see me, because I go to my Father”.   The end of the chapter in verse 33, Jesus says “…in the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

Jesus did not say tribulation (and heaviness) may come…He said it shall come. He also said he has overcome and 1 John 5:4 says we, overcome the world.

 So be encouraged friends… even though circumstances of the world, the nation and at times in our personal lives look so big they will be nearly impossible to deal with.  You can overcome and find peace in Jesus!
