“THE ROSE”

Today I felt the Lord prompting me to share a vision I had written in my journal in 2008. Hopefully it will bless someone.

I saw a beautiful Red Rose that was loosing its petals one by one. It stood tall as one last petal was falling off. It started to fall and as it fell I could see another complete Rose standing in its place. It was slightly different in that I just knew it was a Heavenly Rose, it was not temporary, and it seemed to be covered with something like a mist or cloud. It’s substance was not describable, but there was a different glow to it then I had ever seen. It was replacing the other temporal Rose.

The understanding given me from this vision is that it is a picture of the very process the Lord is doing in His people. I believe it has been a seven year season for many. The lovers of God who are surrendered will experience this transformation into the mighty but humble sons of God on the earth. Heaven is coming to earth and the process begins in us. The world is desperate for the body of Christ to make the real God known.

 Holy Spirit is creating  new things into the deep of our lives that we may arise and shine with His love and become those who carry His mind and heart to all nations of the earth.  For many 2015 is your year to arise so don’t miss it.

Every disciple of Christ is that beautiful Red Rose that is losing its natural petals, old thought patterns, old ways of doing things, fleshly passions and religious spirits one by one so that what appears in its place will be pure, supernatural and  eternal. Holy Spirit is working all things together in our lives that He might change us into this beautiful eternal Rose that carries the very characteristics of heaven and shines with His Glory through the supernatural petals of His miracluous love and power.

 2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Father we thank you for Your faithfulness to never give up on us. You change us into your likeness through all that comes our way. You are so much greater than our mistakes, failures and  wrong choices. Thank you for your love gift of repentance  through the blood of Christ. We say “YES and AMEN to the work Holy Spirit desires to do in us so that we are becoming like this “Eternal Red Rose of Glory” You want us Red with His blood covering and dwelling in His glory presence. Thank you Father, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus name Amen.                                                                    Janee

ABIDE IN GODS HEART

GOD’S HEART 

 Picture in your mind a huge heart (God’s heart) coming down from heaven completely enveloping you so that your heart is being lifted up to abide and rest inside this big heart. Your heart is being consumed into His heart and becoming one. Can you see it? This is why God gave us an imagination that is like a canvas on which God can paint His pictures or like a screen where He can show us heavens movies.

This vision came as I was sitting in a worship atmosphere in the congregation of a prophetic church. I was still before the Lord listening for His voice when I saw a huge heart so big it completely covered the whole building and the entire congregation. I knew it was God’s heart. I could sense it beating as it enveloped all of us. Each heart that was longing lovingly to be with Him was being empowered with His heartbeat. I could see hearts being lifted into His great big heart. And out of each heartbeat was the flow of God’s love and power. Within each new beat of His heart there was the mind of Christ and the will of our Father.

I had been praying for several weeks for Him to show me how to live in this world every day from His heart where I first existed. I knew it was His will for us to learn how to live this life from His heart. Holy Spirit was showing me and giving me understanding through this vision.

I knew that as our hearts continually longed and hungered to be with Him that we actually are drawing His big heart closer and closer to us until we are finally consumed with His great big heart. I knew our little love sick hearts could live this life inside His big heart and we could experience the heartbeat of God. God’s heart is our Home. Holy Spirit tells me this is how Jesus knew to do only what He saw the Father doing and saying. John 5:19 .We too can know the mind and will of God and do only what we see Him saying and doing. John 14:12 Glory! Glory! Glory!

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,

Vince and Janee Hawks

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!

BE INSTANT IN FAITH

We know the Lord tells us in His word to be instant in season and out of season. (ITimothy 4:2) The Lord said to me; “Be instant in Faith” This is not a revelation that applies to our solid foundation, for we are always to pray, fast, and spend intimate time with our God. We are always to dedicate time to Him and soak in His presence. But when God whispered to me “Be instant in Faith” He also gave me understanding that this truth is a strategy to accomplish God’s will in different  situations we face in this current day of the instant fast-pace life in which we find ourselves, especially in  America. It is a revelation tool to use to accomplish God’s will for such a time as this. We know our great God can do amazing things in an instant.  So I believe Father wants us to Know that it is not our condition, or our situation, our time, our peace, or all our prayers, but it is “our FAITH in the God who is in us” to accomplish what is needed to glorify Him in the moment.  When we just respond to His will even if it is in chaos, in sickness, or in many distractions, etc, still He will come because of simple faith. The faith of a mustard seed spoken of in the scriptures is the faith of Jesus Christ that He has given to us  and it will move mountains.  It is His faith He has placed in His own. So  we must set ourselves aside and know it is not about us but rather the God  who is greater in us that will do all things and will do the impossible at anytime or anywhere. Glory to God for this is freedom. It is not about us to make anything happen for His glory. Our part is simply to  believe God, to show up in faith, obedient, and humble. Praise God for His ways are so much higher than ours.

Hebrews 11: 1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  So the faith of the Lord in us is going to put substance to what we hope for, it will put  evidence into things we have not seen.                                  

Hebrews 11: 6 “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that HIs is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”  It is the faith Jesus placed in us that will capture the Lords ear and power. We will accomplish nothing or receive nothing without faith for the just shall live by Faith.                                                                                                           The just shall live by Faith” (Romans 1:17) Paul said in Galatians 2:20 ” The life I live I live by the Faith OF the son of God” KJV                                                                                                                I

WRITE US IN YOUR BOOK

Write us in Your Book

MALACHI 3:16-18

Then those who feared the Lord talked often one to another; and the Lord listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared the lord and who thought on His name.
And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I publicly recognize and openly declare them to be My jewels )My special possession, My peculiar treasure). And I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him.
Then shall you return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God and him who does not serve Him.

GOD IS WRITING A BOOK: I WANT US ALL TO BE IN IT.

God is listening for us to talk often to each other about Him in our lives. He is writing a book. He wants to write down the love and faith of His own treasures.(people)
If we are worshipfully fearing to be completely abandoned in His Lordship and helping one another often we will be one of the jewels He puts in His book.
If we are written in His book of remembrance we will always be spared in times of trouble like a son is always sheltered by His Father.
We serve Him first with our pure hearts and release the fruit of that eternal priority to each other often, that our discernment will be right and not wrong.

PRAY AND BELIEVE: MAYBE YOU WOULD JOIN ME

Come Lord with healing in your wings for
all the crippling ailments in the body of Christ (body, soul, spirit)
and release us fully into personal and corporate destinies.
Equip us with all the mantles of reformation that are falling from heaven now,
and as we are all worshipfully fearing to be faithful to serve you first in full obedience
come to baptize us new with the power of Your love for others out of that fruit.
This I pray and proclaim for us all in the mighty name of the one name above all else, The Lord Jesus Christ.

Awake, Arise, Shine

by Janee Hawks

I would encourage you today that the coming days in the Lord are the finest hours of the church of Jesus Christ. He is calling and empowering His glorious church to AWAKEN, to ARISE, AND TO SHINE in this world with the GLORY OF THE LORD. That GLORY is CHRIST FULLY ALIVE IN YOU.

Yes, great darkness will increase but much more will the grace and glory of the Lord abound. His church will shine brighter than ever with His great love and power. The world will know we are genuine Christ followers by our fervent love and kindness for one another. The Kingdom will come through us, His people. Heaven will come to earth through us, His church. His Divine plan will be done among all nations and people, through us, His body on the earth. The whole creation is groaning now waiting for the manifestation of the Sons of God. Those who are lead by His Spirit are the Sons of God.

Because of His great love for us we are being shaken so that what remains is truly of His Kingdom and we can come into the fullness of the stature of Christ on the earth. The Kingdom of God is not shaken, not lacking, and will endure forever. It is the Fathers good pleasure to give us the Kingdom.

Therefore church, we must stand only in His righteousness freely God-given to us by faith in Christ. There is power released in His righteousness. We must encourage ourselves and pursue to live inwardly in His rest and peace. The promise to us is that the joy of His presence will always be our strength. We can always experience His power through praise and thankfulness in all things. There is a truth we secure deep within that ALL things are working together for us to be conformed into His image. We determine to keep the faith knowing it is a good fight with present and eternal rewards.

We are called to AWAKE to God’s vision that the knowledge of the Lord will cover the whole earth as the waters cover the seas. Know and see that you are a chosen people, a love gift to Jesus, a treasure of God, and a joint heir with Christ, who has been given a seat with Him now in heaven, that you might experience His authority and power over all the power of the enemy. You have an indwelling eternal HOPE that anchors you into His safe harbor to ARISE and SHINE through any storms you face.

Position yourself now for a great outpouring of God’s fire and glory, which will flow with rivers of great favor, abilities, strategies, special empowerments, assignments of supernatural results, and miraculous provisions. Move against all odds for God is with you. Stand courageously in the face of the giants that oppose you and proclaim that you will take the land for God. Pray with no doubt that all heaven is coming to answer your prayers. Know you have been rescued from the powers of darkness. They have already lost and you are more than a conqueror as you rest in the presence of the Lord. In His presence is where your will receive heavenly wisdom to build His Kingdom and the revelation of who He is for your situation which will defeat your enemy.

As we “Behold Him” by keeping ourselves in the mirror of His word and communing intimately with Him, He will transform us from faith to more faith, and glory to more glory. God will cause us to AWAKEN to His heart. He will give us the ARISE within, and He will cause us to SHINE. It is a season of a special visitation from the Lord. He is very near! Turn your eyes upon Jesus, and let the things of this world grow dim.

Our great God is in complete control of this world that He loves. His eye keeps watch over this nation and over His beloved.

His eyes are toward you and open to your cry (Ps 34:15).

He rules by His might forever; “His eyes keep watch” on the nations; Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah. (Psalms 66:7)

Overheard a Meeting of Alarm from the Courts of the Dark Kingdom

by Janee Hawks

An alarm was sounded in the Kingdom of Darkness! All were called to assemble to the devil’s courts. He arose from his throne with great rage and begins to declare, “We must intensify the battle against the image of God on the earth.” We must take out multitudes to hell and target our worst and most subtle weaponry against the believers in Jesus Christ as their Lord and King. We cannot allow Jesus Christ to take any more ground, for I am king. The earth belongs to me. Shouts of sheer supernatural evil were resounding throughout the second heaven as the devil proclaimed his deception.

“INTENSIFY, INTENSIFY!”

As the armies of hell, crowd of fallen angels and demons, became quiet the planning began. Here is an example of their plans: Start by blinding them with so much pollution; the thick veil of deception and make them indifferent with drugs of discouragement and doubt. Cloud their vision with worldly pleasures until they slide into the love of my world system, for it will keep them from experiencing the love of God as their Father.

Go put them in a fog of too much self-focus and introspection so they will not have Holy Ghost spiritual focus. Make them dizzy with busy and busier until they stagger and become lame. Weigh them down with too much of everything especially the good things so they will never notice.

Overwhelm them with so much anxiety over the cares of life, and intoxicate and desensitize them with all that my world system has to offer. Steal their spiritual disciplines so we can stop them from engaging in the world as light and salt.

Give them more violence and sex to watch and be sure you tantalize them with my witchcraft and supernatural powers. Their eyes and ears are our gates. We must get this generation. We must keep them mesmerized with their technologies to rob all their time. Also rob them from any encounters with their God; give them so many attractive and legitimate things to do.

Steal their presence of God with pride over their spiritual accomplishments. Steal their time so they will not stand on any of those promises God gave and most of all so they will not get to know Him. Stifle their love with offence toward their own and torment them with situations they will not easily forgive.

Weigh them down with false responsibilities, wrong commitments, so they will be ineffective, lacking in real commitment and God given responsibilities. Crowd their calendars so they forget they are to be led by Holy Spirit’s calendar too.
Overload their spiritual plates with so much conflicting material until they become confused. Then they will not be able to partake of the one balance spiritual diet Holy Ghost would select for their own personal transformation.

Give them ideas and thoughts that will very subtly divide them and separate them. Twist it, use small-decorated lies, religious doctrine, and make them stubborn to work out their difference. Rob them of power with judgments against each other. We cannot let them become one. We cannot let them find the harmony in their differences. Their unity will only give them much more power. Cause their love to grow cold.

Complicate everything in their life, make their relationships difficult, and steal their money, strip their wages, make them more work and steal their memories and thoughts from their minds. They must not know they have the mind of Christ, a sound and spiritual mind. Let their minds be on such overload and their hearts heavy so they will never be still and hear the voice of their God.

Now maybe their faith will begin to waver and they will shrink back. Maybe their conscience will weaken by ignoring the issues. Maybe they will start to lose touch with God as they disobey. We want their bodies to begin to rule, self-gratification and ambitions to prevail; spiritual idols to creep in with pleasure seeking. Soon we are going to starve them and maybe they will no longer hunger and thirst for their God.

Don’t you see? They are going to shoot us down. Their leaders are starting to reveal to them the power of the Cross of Christ and that endless power of His blood. They are getting it, that they are only a prayer of faith away from a complete rescue, restoration and what they call redemption. They are screaming “LET MY PEOPLE GO! And it sounds like its coming from God’s throne. More Angels are being released to them.

Don’t you see? Don’t you see them? They are arising to their glory; they are walking as more than conquerors, they are going to become the glorious sons of God. They are beginning to reign as Christ’s kings and priests. The “whole body of Christ “is trying to infiltrate our world. We cannot let them converge and form unified power. We cannot let all of Christ’s body begin to walk in the power and works He did on the earth. We must destroy His image in them. We must stop their advancement of the Kingdom of God. They are waking up! They are becoming fully alive and we will not be able to stop them.

Go intensify your attack, for God says Greater is He in them then we are.
Church of Jesus Christ, come together in the unity of His love,

“Arise; shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.” Isaiah 60:1-3

Divine Explosion is Coming

Prophecy given to me by the Lord in prayer on July 28th 2011. – Janee Hawks

The Lord spoke to me “DIVINE EXPLOSION” is coming.

Let God arise, Let His enemies be scattered;
Let those also who hate Him flee before Him. Psalms 68:1

It will be destructive to the enemy’s camp.
God will arise and every enemy will be scattered in many lives and long-term oppositions will be scattered into nothingness. Many blockades of delay will be blown up. Evil oppressions, unhealthy habits, and ungodly strongholds in people’s lives will be shattered and blown apart.
Governments, media, cities and nations will see the results of the mighty arm of the Lord. They will be shaken and disarmed. This increase of light from the explosion will unveil darkness and deception in many high places and people.
Many of the devils schemes of destruction will backfire on him: and they will be turned into great advancements for the Kingdom of God.
The enemy will have his season but the church of Jesus Christ will arise to its intended glorious state and the words of John will come to pass “The spirit and the Bride say come.” Then the Father will say Jesus, go get your bride.

“The spirit and the Bride say come.” – Revelation 22:17

It will explode and release a violent expansion in the Kingdom in which energy is transmitted outward as a shock wave.
There will be fragments of power and glory hit the body of Christ and Kingdom ministries all over the world. (Like fire balls and glory bombs)
There will be outbreaks of revival and salvations from those fragments aiming with purpose throughout the atmosphere. Transformation will erupt.
There will be sudden increase in many arenas of life, outbreaks of the miraculous and the beginning of brand new activity in the spirit realm. There will be sudden outbursts of passion, light and sound in God’s Kingdom believers.

I really feel it is a prophetic word on a large scale, which just says God is going to display His greatness to this world. It will not come in our way but in His way. It may not all be easy or even comfortable at times. It may surprise many and not be the expected. The charge to us all has nothing to do with who we are, or how much we are loved, or what we do or don’t do, but rather just

BELIEVE GOD, THE VOICE OF GOD AND OBEY IT.

We are to begin now to decree it over our lives, our families, our churches, our cities, and nations for it will come.


 

South Africa – December 2010

Vince and I were honored to take part in a mission trip to South Africa with our church Atlanta Revival Center and pastor Vance Murphy. We ministered every evening for a week in a tent church in the area of Tonga located about 10k from Mozambique border, and 15k north of the Swaziland border.


Ministering in South Africa

Every service was unique and each night God allowed us to experience the fire and glory of God. We saw hundreds of people come to Christ for salvation. Many were delivered and healed in body and soul. Many were encouraged in the Lord. The darkness of witchcraft was pushed back in the area as the power of the Kingdom of God was released. The pure and simple gospel of Jesus Christ preached always releases the power of the God. We believe for the fire of God to remain with them so much more can be done to the Father’s praise and glory.


Response to Altar Call

We visited the children’s home of IRIS ministries, praying and encouraging them. We also attended a children’s feeding center near-by and was able to assist in their Christmas Party. We saw 400 eat with only enough food for 200. This is not unusual for them to experience. Little ones lined up with their little bowls to get a small portion of rice. They are so amazing to see the joy on their faces and in their hearts because of the love of Jesus they experience.


Vince at IRIS

We were blessed to be a part of the personal ministry among our group and develop closer relationships with the church body. One particular Morning Prayer meeting was charged with the power and presence of God among the group. It also directly affected the tent meeting that evening with great victories in taking ground for God in the Tonga area and in the personal lives of the people.


Janee at IRIS’ Feeding Center

Finally, a first time perk for us was a day tour through Krueger Park, the world’s largest natural habitat animal reserve. It was amazing that we saw everything except the cheetah up close and personal. One pride of Lions were about 100 feet from our vehicle and even a huge rhino so close we could see his eyes. The whole experience was a special gift from God.

We love Africa and cry out for this continent to become a force of God’s light on the earth. Africa will light the world as it burns with the fire of God’s love.
