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

SUFFERING FOR CHRIST’S BODY ON THE EARTH

Suffering for Christ body on earth

 Colossians 1:24 [Even] now I rejoice in the midst of my sufferings on your behalf. And in my own person I am making up whatever is still lacking and remains to be completed [on our part] of Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of His body, which is the church. AMV

What is Holy Spirit saying here through Paul the apostle?

                                Colossians 1:24-27 (NKJV)

 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

 The message to the church in these verses is this; as believers, our hope of the fulfillment of being completely in His glory presence is having Christ fully alive in us. It is to grow up into the full stature of Christ. However, that will require the sacrifice of suffering what is still left of Christ’s sufferings. God has left us a part of Christ’s sufferings to fulfill in order for us to be completely filled with His glory presence. We must complete the sufferings of Christ that God has ordained for the purpose of the whole body of Christ to come to full maturity. It is our stewardship to fulfill the word of God especially for ministers gifted to mature the church, but also to all as ambassadors of the good news. The call is to all in different ways and levels. Jesus said to God the Father; “You have given me a body to do your will, I am the offering, once for all.” It is still His body on the earth that must do His will, which includes fulfilling the completion of Christ sufferings. Christ fully mature within us is our glory, The sufferings we willingly endure for the sake of a mature empowered church and to advance the Kingdom of God will grace our lives with such an increase of anointing and resurrection power.

I Peter 4:1-2 Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.

So Father in Jesus Name let us come before you willing to suffer to do your will for the sake Your Glory in Christ ‘s body on the earth. We are encouraged and thankful that there will be much increased favor and grace on our life.  All we do we do out of love for you Jesus.                                                                    Janee

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

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!

“DRAW NEAR TO GOD (continually) AND HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU” James 4:8

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)
