Iron Sharpens Iron for Ground Breaking Leaders
Iron Sharpens Iron Ground Breaking Leaders walk IN Psalm 91
December 17th, 2016
This morning, I jolted awake with a song of praise in my spirit and the words “My Soul’s on Fire! My Soul’s on Fire!” burning on my lips.
The Lord brought me out of a season of hibernation, hiddenness, with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation! As He breathed life into me, I saw the FIRE of GOD consume me. Off in the distance, I saw the fire of hell burning – but the devil couldn’t hold a candle to the eternal flame of the everlasting love of a Father’s desire to bring His children through the doors of their forever home.
Then the Angels and I danced to the song, “REVIVAL! Hearts on FIRE! Holy Spirit rain down, change us from the inside…”
Suddenly… I realized this song is right out of Psalm 91 – the CORE scripture that Dan and I have pressed into in the last half of 2016. As the Heavenly Hosts sang this song, Holy Spirit showed me the truth of what Psalm 91 means to you and to me.
Here is the word of the Lord I received for 2017. I am BURSTING, WORSHIPING, AND READY! LORD, send me!
 “Revival” – Written by: Joshua David Silverberg, Julian Gamba, Kipp Williams, Lindsey Sweat, Lorena Castellanos
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
Psalm 91 (NIV
“This is your Bible. Do you believe what the Word says? I mean truly believe it? Does your life exemplify it? Are you living the God life in every area? Does your bank account reflect the riches? Does your Christmas list reflect a life well lived? Does your body look like a temple of God? It’s time! It’s time! IT’S TIME!!!!!!
2017 is THE year of RESUSCITATION through ANSWERED PRAYER, which will begat REVIVAL fire in the hearts of the Army of God’s Messengers!
You will Lead with Passion in your Purpose, by the Power of the Holy Spirit in order to PROFIT in this Revelation Economy to feed the children, widows, and orphans, heal infirmities, sickness, and dis-ease, and see God’s Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven.
A revolution has started – a stirring in the souls of ground breaking leaders to set the captives free, to walk through enemy camps and remain hidden so that you can advance the Kingdom of God in a simple, peaceful, powerful, and meaningful way.
You WILL walk in the Shadow of the Almighty! No harm will come to you.
While 1000 will fall at your side, 10,000 will fall at your right hand.
No harm comes to you in this battle because you are walking in STEALTH MODE… with the ROAR of the LION of Judah covering you making you invisible to the evil one – while you only observe with your eyes to see the punishment of the wicked.
(Oh, OH! Here it is…)
They that fall are falling at the feet of Jesus. Their punishment? It’s the same as for you and I – they, too, are forgiven by His precious Blood because of the work of the cross.
You will destroy enemy camps because you bring ‘REVELATION’ with you (over you, around you, in you) – you walk in the peaceful, simple power of the Holy Spirit.
You join the Father. Together you rescue His Beloved. He says, “…I will protect him, for he acknowledges My Name…I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
It’s HARVEST TIME!
Link arms with Dan and I as we join our Leadership Team around the world this year to set the captives free – simply, peacefully, and powerfully – no harm or backlash from the evil one – because he can no longer see us. He has turned his back on us and is running away from us – because all he sees is JESUS – who is “my refuge and my, fortress, my God, in whom I trust!” AMEN? AMEN!
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
YOU, my dear friend, are a ground breaking leader that God is calling to the forefront. There is much work to do – and even though this past year may have felt like your bones have become ‘dry and brittle’, I believe that God is going to resurrect you, too.
The Lord wants you to step up, but He’s warning us not to ‘step out’ from under the Shadow of the Almighty as we grow in our faith and in our calling.
Let me share with you what has been one of the most profound lessons for our Iron Sharpens Iron family. (Our ministry where we serve ground breaking leaders from around the world, teaching them to systemize their resources, create predictable profitability™, so that they can FUND Kingdom purposes with their business ministry.)
Read over Psalm 91 (NIV) again and imagine yourself being right there…
The Lord showed me a little kitten – you know, one that is all cute and cuddly. It is just learning how to 'hiss' and 'spat' and show his claws.
“Phhhhhhhhhttt, phhhhhhhhhttt!” the kitten spits as he rises up on the tips of his little paws and claws out at the air. This kitten is you and I.
When we walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, we are under the breastbone of our Father – the LION of JUDAH. He is so much bigger than us, we hardly notice Him.
As we walk with Him THROUGH enemy camps, we are in Stealth Mode. All we see is that no harm comes to us...and that so many are falling to our left and to our right.
We can begin to think that WE are ‘all of that and a bag of chips’. …smiles… In actuality, they are really FALLING at the FEET of Jesus.
We GET to go along with our Daddy – and be a part of what He does and does so well!
Here is what can happen and has happened to so many of us when we are called to do the work of the Lord.
When we watch the exciting things that happen around us – doors opening into communities, people getting healed, people getting saved – we begin to think that we are the ones that are invincible. We feel that we can FIGHT the enemy. After all, so many of us have been taught that we are on a battleground, and we are in warfare. That is SO dangerous! Why?
We quickly leave Psalm 91…and run out onto the battlefield to fight against an adversary – the Hawk – who has a legal right to this battleground due to iniquities, curses, and sin (not yet uncovered).
We spat and hiss as our adversary swoops down, resulting in a losing battle of wits and might on our end. We end up getting hurt…and then wonder how on earth God could let this happen to us?
Well, this year, there will be no more warfare and intercession in this realm and in this old way.
You must understand, there are better ways of getting things accomplished: Simple, peaceful, and powerfully profound ways.
Ground Breaking Leaders have to know these strategies and set up IN enemy camps – so that we can reach the people groups we need to – in order to advance the Kingdom.
 Psalm 91:14-16, NIV
 Psalm 91:2, NIV
“Most people think that Psalm 91 is a song of REVENGE!
‘HA! I will show you! You mess with me? You gonna get it from my Dad!’
BUT it is ACTUALLY a Psalm of REVIVAL!”
Yes, I believe that answers to prayers we have been lifting up to God’s ears for years will come to pass now.
When you receive those answers, it will be like you have been resuscitated! A fire will burn deep inside of you. This fire, one that you can’t contain, will bring REVIVAL in your personal life, your family, your community, your cities, your states or provinces, and in your countries.
Together – through this revelation – God's Kingdom will come, on earth as it is in Heaven. Hallelujah!
I am praying that this book will lift your faith higher than it has ever been lifted before. May it bring you answers to questions that you have had circling inside of you…and break you free from the chains that bind you.
May you come to a greater understanding of who you are in and through Christ Jesus whom you serve with all of the vitality you are capable of – mixed with the grace and vitality of the Trinity.
I am asking God the Father to grab you and pull you close to His heart so that you can see your destiny. I pray that you can, even in this moment, feel His heart, His love, and His desire for you to walk WITH him under his breastbone. Together, you will do the great works that the Bible speaks of – that we were born to be capable to do.
I pray that Holy Spirit would bring you wisdom, grace, revelation, tools, provision, family, team, and everything else that you need to fulfill your destiny under the protection of the mighty Lion of Judah.
Holy Spirit, stir deep within my new friend’s spirit, imparting the knowing that this year will bring a resuscitation of dreams and the manifestation of works of the hands and hearts of your saints.
In Jesus’ name! Amen!
