I Heard the Lord say…

…CALIFORNIA!…

On 1-27-20 as I was praying at our breakfast table, I heard the Lord say, “California! Fire shall burn California, and it shall burn out the nest of vipers and witchcraft, and even the spirit of Jezebel shall be rooted out.”

Wondering what I was hearing, I then heard the Lord say, “There’s Gold in California! There’s Gold in California!”

The Lord then showed me a map of California, and it was burning; red and yellow flames of fire were consuming the whole state. And the Lord says, “When California burns, it will become the Golden State again.” Then I saw the fire had died out. Then, as if the breath of God, blowing, blew away gray ashes that hovered over California and what it had become. When the ashes were gone, I saw big mounds of pure, yellow gold, like as unto smooth mountains, jutting out of the dark ash that seemed to be the ground. Up and down that map of California, these mounds of gold jutted up. And I heard the Lord say, “California shall produce gold again, but not the gold of the past, but of the future. The gold now will be the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

I saw also the Golden Gate Bridge above the waters. What did this mean? The Lord didn’t say at first. Later, after I began to pray about this meaning, I heard the Lord say… The Lord says, “The Golden Gate Bridge stands as a spiritual gateway to the once, ‘Golden State, California’ as a producer of the gospel of Jesus Christ. My state, California, will once again be mined for gold, as a spirit purged of the dross of sin, and the spirit of acceptance of sin in many forms. The pure gold will rise to the top, as I will send righteous leaders into California that have already been through my refining process. These righteous leaders will help me refine the people of California, and bring out those already there that I have put through a refining process. They will merge into powerful mountains of gold, a worth only seen at first from the perspective of the Kingdom of Heaven; then later to others, their surrounding world. I, the Lord, has spoken.”

Then I heard the Lord say, “Nancy Pelosi and her spirit of Jezebel, the spirit of witchcraft shall be cast down. No witch shall sit in the White House in the presidential seat of power. Witchcraft, manipulation, lies: Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and all the rest are Jezebel spirits. All the Congress, the House, and Senate who are witches shall be cast down. I will burn off the chaff of all of these,” saith the Lord.

Now, I, Della, in no way consider myself a prophet, as in the prophets of old, but I do consider myself a sheep, an adamant follower of Jesus Christ. And Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice, and another they will not follow.”

I do not follow people when it comes to my faith: not people, pastors, evangelists, politicians, or other gurus. I love them, but don’t follow them, as none of them died on the cross for me.

I heard the Lord say… A Wave of Love…

The Birth of a New Thing, a Promise From Old, a Word of Knowledge and Wisdom!

In this “I heard the Lord say…” the Lord showed me to go back to something he gave me over 10 years ago. And as I write and share this now, I know we are living in tumultuous times! But! God’s word is always so timely, and yet timeless at the same time.

Before I give you the word, I say again, I know we are living in tumultuous times, but God is still God and He is on the throne. Our churches have been shut down due to the pandemic. Most of us have been doing live streaming, or videos for our weekly messages of love, hope, and grace from the Bible.

But for some of us, it’s as if we have been standing in a dark place praying for light! We’ve had time away from work, and the world, and have been home with family.

Searching for answers?

I’ve been hearing more about Ecclesia (called out ones into a civil body) who met regularly in their homes. I say this because of what the Lord told me over ten years ago. What he told me has everything to do with the church today, and our homes today.

So, if you are searching for something today, I’m sharing the entire word the Lord gave me. When he gave it to me I was in the beginning of writing the book, Inside Sarah’s Tent, Birthing God’s Blessings Inside the Home, which was published in 2013. You can find it here on my Shop-For-Love  page. But below I’m going to give you what I heard the Lord say to me back then. It is the Lord’s word, not mine. I give him all the glory!!! It is the last chapter of the book.

Chapter 29

The Wave of Love and Love Letter From God

This is the love letter the Lord gave me and he entitled it, “The Birth of a New Thing, a Promise From Old, a Word of Knowledge and Wisdom.”

Boyce and I had then just returned from an Open Heaven Conference, and I was fasting and praying for the content of the book, Inside Sarah’s Tent. I felt impressed of the Lord to get a notebook and pen. After I did, I felt words flooding my spirit. The Lord said to me, “Write down the words I am saying, word for word.” In the following paragraphs is the letter I got from the Lord, word for word. I have not changed it but have written it here and am sharing it with you just as the Lord shared it with me.

The Lord said, “The church is like Job. We are on the trash heap…we’ve lost so much…our sons and daughters. Just like Job.

“But God is talking to the church. You think you are strong and powerful in your own might, in your own strength, in your sacrifices. But God says, did the church lay the heavens? Did your bring Leviathan forth? Did you place the stars just so?

“The church has been reeling under the influence of the world. God says we’ve taken God off the agenda wanting to do new things. But God says, I’m going to show myself strong. You go to church, you seek riches, you seek favor from mankind. You have chosen recreation more times than not over me. You fill your homes with possessions, yet you don’t live there. You fill your hearts and minds with wordly ideas so I can’t live there. And like Job of old, says the Lord, you’ve lost it all. All the spiritual riches, says the Lord, are lying in heaven waiting, says the Lord, waiting for you to acknowledge, like old Job, that I am God and not you.

“For all your work, says the Lord, you’ve left your houses desolate, the place where I want to live with you. My house is desolate, says the Lord. What good is a home if you don’t live there?

“I want to pour spiritual treasures into your houses, says the Lord. Like Job of old, I want to turn your captivity and bless you, and restore you, and restore the place of my choice to abide.

“I said, Love your neighbor as yourself. But you say, Who is my neighbor? I say, look to the right, look to the left, look forward, look behind you and in front of you. These are your neighbors.

“The church for too long has been ashamed of me, seeking favor of the world and mankind in general. You have practiced church with your mouths moving in tandem with the world.

“But you have robbed me of tithes and offerings. In robbing me, you have robbed yourselves and brought a curse on yourselves. Do you not know that if you seek my favor, I will give you all the favor you need with man?

“I turned Job’s captivity. I will turn yours and the sinner I will send to you for prayer, even as I did Job. His friends I sent to him for him to pray for them. As Job prayed, I turned his captivity. For he sought me for what was best. He did not seek his friends’ advice or his wife’s, but mine.

“In the beginning, Job fancied himself a servant of God. But in the end, Job knew he was my servant and I was his God. And so knew his friends. They all recognized, through Job, that I was God. They all called on me then and not each other. They prayed to me, each one individually. I became a personal God to Job’s friends.

“The church, like Job, thought it got things done through their own strength. But it became a desolate place. Desolate hearts, desolate homes, filled with cursing, revelry, idolatry, and fornication, and murder. But I am becoming personal again to my people. I am going to turn their captivity and build up the old waste places. The waste places are the hearts and minds of my people and their dwelling places. I want to adorn and beautify these places, first with my Spirit. For in my spirit, Job found truth. In truth, he found peace. In peace, he found healing.

“The new wave of anointing and power I am bringing is for people who will willingly invite me back into the home, the dwelling place, and recognize that I am God, the Father, who sent the son to die for their sins.

“For I am Jehovah Nissi. I will be their banner if they will let me be over their home. Inside their home I will bring the promises to their table for food, Jehovah-Jireh, their provider. I will turn the tide of the enemy with this new wave of anointing. But it is not a new thing I bring, says the Lord, but an old thing I bring. It will seem like a new thing because of the mentality of the world today. My son came and died so we could set up our abode, our place of dwelling inside your heart and homes.

“I am a dwelling God, not a random God, but an eternal dwelling God.

“My church chose excitement and pleasures of this world over me. But now I say, choose me. I allowed this choice for a while to test you and for comparison, but now, says the Lord, I say choose me, for I am peace, I am healing, I am the provider. Repent and choose me. I will turn your captivity and bless you as I did Job of old.

“And you will not seek every man his neighbor and say tell me about God, for I will pour my spirit into you inside your home, says the Lord, and talk comfortably to you of myself. I will teach you how to reach out to your neighbor and draw him into this new thing that is of old.

“Power will be given to this new thing that is of old and men will call you priests of the Lord. They will say, surely God is with you here. The wave will be transferable to those who seek you for it. The church because of this will become a strong force over the land, says the Lord, not lofty anymore, but down, on earth, and reachable to the lost.

“Do you not know, Church, that the world around you is dying for a little bit of love? Not your love, but my everlasting love? I say, come to me Church, drink from this new wave. You will not drown, but live. I will say, come, go, sin no more, but live and live well, whole, and blessed.”

Then God told me, “This is the birth of a new thing, a promise from old.”

After reading this word from God, understand that the latter glory of Job was far better and richer than the former glory of Job because Job admitted that God was God and he, Job was a man.

But not just any man, He was a chosen vessel of God to be a servant of God–well, whole, and blessed. God created a real-life, “God moment” in Job’s life. It was pitiful and painful but oh, so powerful. It was a legacy created by God, about God, for Job to hand down to his children and children’s children, even to today, to us, to our children. It is a legacy of changing lives and hearts for the glory of God and for the Kingdom of God, an eternal home for our children, neighbors, our friends and us.

Come, birth the promise of the new wave of love into your life, in your heart, and in your home. It’s God’s promise of old, the promise and legacy of Abraham and Sarah, yet a new thing for us today through Jesus. God is waiting to bless you, love you, save you, and provide for you, and give you and your family life, blessings, and most of all, eternal life. Most of all, he is waiting for you to accept him into your heart and your home so he can send his supernatural wave and flow of love and blessings to you there.

God is calling! Return to your first love, your Father God, through Jesus Christ, His son, and invite Him into your heart and home. He is waiting!

 I heard the Lord Say…

Till we meet again, God bless!

Author Della Strickland

 

  


I heard the Lord say…

…The South shall rise again! The South shall rise again!…

Then I heard the Lord say again, “I am striking the base of the pulpits! I am striking the base of the pulpits: politicians and preachers!”

And I saw in the spirit, as if it were, a man in a three-piece, gray suit standing behind a pulpit in front of a great congregation of the Lord. Lighting struck the base of it and it exploded, and then fragments blew outward and away from it. The man in the suit stood alone, vulnerable before the people.

First, I perceived this to be politicians. And the Lord said, “I am striking the base of the politicians’ pulpits and exposing them whether they be righteous or unrighteous! I am exposing the ones with their evil agenda, an agenda that is not mine, saith the Lord. This will be their downfall, as if falling off the edge of a cliff. Their fall will be painful as they hit the ground of reality, says the Lord. For far too many years that have created bubbles of lies that have shrouded my people, creating an illusionary world in their minds, tring to divide the hearts of my people from me, saith the Lord.

“If only they would have come to me, instead of the enemy, I would have sheltered them beneath my wings. But they would not.

“Now, I am exposing them and their evil agenda they had for my people, and my word, and now, instead of being sheltered in my love, they will become naked to the scrutiny and disdain of the whole world,” says the Lord. “And I shall turn many people from their evil works.”

And I heard the Lord again say, “I am striking the base of ministers’ pulpits! I am striking the base of ministers’ pulpits! And I saw again a man in a gray, three piece suit. Lightening came out of nowhere and struck the base of the pulpit he was standing behind and blew it apart too.

“And they too shall be exposed before my people, whether they be righteous or unrighteous, they will stand exposed before my people. I will expose the hirelings, as they do not love my sheep. My sheep, my people, my church will see them and turn away to my righteous ministers, who also will also be exposed, but for their righteous stand for my word, my gospel, my ministers who are called and love my sheep, my church, my body.”

And I saw, as it were, a great congregation of different people: races, cultures, and genders, turning their heads to their right, and seeing a red exit sign above a door, they began to leave, being lead away by the Spirit of the Lord.

Then I heard the Lord saying, “The South shall rise again! The South shall rise again!”

Then I saw a black and white map of the United States of America. The eastern, lower states labeled as “The South” were lifted up. They had a gray mist over them. I heard the spirit say, “The South shall rise again. I have moved many people into the south for my purposes. The gospel shall go forth from the South into the rest of the United States: the north/northeast, the northwest/west, and the southwest to save many souls.”

Then I saw as if the Lord waved his hand and the gray mist began to lift away and I saw these states turn white. Huge arrows came forth from the southern part of the map and began to go up, out, and bend towards these other areas of the United States. I saw, as if it were, a stirring in the middle of these lower states, and I saw many nationalities from other countries begin speaking in their native languages as people went forth into these other states: north, east, west, southwest, and the middle of the US. They began sharing the gospel in many languages as the people in the upper room did when they were baptized in the Holy Spirit.

Then the Lord showed me that when the gospel goes out, prosperity will come into the southern states to pay and pave the way to then go into all the world from all the states to share the gospel to save the souls God is drawing unto Him; a billion souls.

Now, just think about what the Lord is saying here. A billion souls being won for the Kingdom of Heaven!!!

I, and my family, have been praying for the true Church of Jesus Christ for many years. I have also been praying for God to send workers into the harvest, just like Jesus said to.

Matthew 9:37-38: Then saith he unto the disciples, “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.”

As I was wondering about the things I heard the Lord say, and the vision he gave me, I felt the Lord gave me a word of knowledge.

The word of knowledge went like this: Read More
