Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – I Tell You Who You Are

Don’t look to a screen to shape your expectations of yourself. Neither should you line yourself up against the person next to you for comparison.

Come to me. I alone will tell you who you are, for you are built in me and by me.

You are my likeness. My beloved.

I know all your innermost thoughts so there is nothing to hide from me. Instead, run towards me with your heart open and ask me to fill it with truth. Let me shape your identity, blowing away the lies you have believed about yourself.

Let my voice unlock you to be who I made you to be.

Activation: Ask God to identify any lies that you have believed about yourself. Hand them to him in prayer, repent for believing them, and ask him to exchange the lies for truth and to give you a word that he relates specifically to your unique identity. Speak this word over yourself daily.

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?

1 Corinthians 3:16 (NIV)

On that day you will realise that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.

John 14:20 (NIV)

Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – Prepare To Harvest

In My hand I carry a sickle made of pure gold, refined in the fire of My glory. It has been tested, tried, and found worthy for use in the Kingdom of God. I have removed every kind of impurity that would make it brittle or weak so that it does not break during times of intense pressure. The harvest season is long and laborious, so I have ensured that this tool will serve Me reliably as I thresh the fields.

This sickle represents My church and I have sharpened her for the task ahead. She has been well prepared for the coming season, and I can rely on her to work smoothly with My Spirit. It is time to see a great harvest of souls come into the Kingdom of God. It is time to swing My bride as a sharp threshing sledge over the ripe fields of the nations!

Prayer: Jesus, here I am, send me where you need me. Show me how I can co-labor with you to see the full harvest come in!

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.”

Matthew 9:37-38 (ESV)

“See, I will make you into a threshing sledge, new and sharp, with many teeth. You will thresh the mountains and crush them, and reduce the hills to chaff.”

Isaiah 41:15 (NIV)

Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – Increase Your Vision

Watchmen on the walls, prepare yourself for a greater dimension of seeing! I will sharpen your spiritual sight and fine tune your discernment. Dreams will increase as I visit you in the night watches, covertly downloading strategies to thwart the enemy’s plans. As Elisha spied on the King of Aram in the Spirit, so you will be keenly aware of the enemy’s tactics, seeing into secret conversations held behind closed doors. You will engage in Holy Spirit espionage, uncovering the schemes of the devil so you can build your defences and prepare against the attacks. I will remove the dimness clouding your vision so that your intercession will hit the target with pin-point accuracy. I am giving you the eyes of an eagle to see far and wide so that the plans of the enemy will be thwarted at every turn.

Prayer: Jesus, I repent for any deception I have believed that has clouded my vision. Please remove the blinders so that I would see with great clarity, accurately perceiving the tactics of the enemy so they can be avoided!

“None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.”

2 Kings 6:12 (NIV)

On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent.

Isaiah 62:6 (ESV)

Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – Step Out Of Egypt

As the Israelites stood on the shores of the Red Sea, they had a choice to make. Would they trust that I was who I said I was, or would they focus their attention on the Egyptian army descending upon them, and turn back?

Today, you are likewise presented with that choice. Will you go along with how the world does things? Will you believe the enemy’s lies which fill you with fear and doubt? Or, will you trust in Me, believing that I am who I say I am, and step out with Me?

I know that this is easier said than done, but did I not provide for the Israelites every need? Did I not demonstrate my faithfulness at every turn? The same God who freed the captives, split the Red Sea, and rained Manna from above stands before you today. I invite you to step out with me today.

Activation: Repent and break all partnership with doubt and any lies of the enemy that would hold you back from embracing God in all His fullness. Step forward as you do this to symbolise your willingness to place your trust fully in Him.

Moses answered the people, “Don’t be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

Exodus 14:13-14 (NIV)

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.

Psalm 91:9-11 (NIV)

Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – Build My Kingdom Here

Time. Money. Blueprints.
Timber. Nails. Cement.

A host of supplies are needed before work can begin on any new building project. I am in the details; I am in the plans and in the construction. I need my people to put on their hard hats and prepare themselves – each and everyday – to be my hands and feet. Will you partner with me – laying your own agendas aside – in building My kingdom here? On Earth as it is in Heaven?

For those who are ready, stretch your hands high and receive the builders’ anointing. What this looks like for each of you is different, for you each have your own unique role in my limitless kingdom.
This is a time of joy and fulfilment. Each new day is an opportunity to draw close to me in this pursuit. Will you join me in setting the world alight with My glory?

Activation: To build with God, we need to have healthy and firm foundations. Do business with God today to ensure your foundations are solid.

Look at your foundations in the Spirit. Ask God to show you any cracks or things that shouldn’t be there. Is there anything you need to let go of? Spend whatever time is needed to ensure your foundations are firm in Him.

We are coworkers with God and you are God’s cultivated garden, the house he is building.

1 Corinthians 3:9 (TPT)

As you come to him, the living Stone – rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him – you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 2:4-6 (NIV)

Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – A Divine Exchange

This past season has brought many of you to your knees. It has been a season of challenge, struggle, and crying out to me.
Do you recognize that I was with you in those moments of pain and discomfort?
Do you remember me sitting by your side? Holding you as you wept?
I do.
I witnessed every tear and heard every cry. You were never alone; you are never alone. Look into the Spirit and allow me to reveal myself to you in those moments. Just as surely as I will never leave you nor forsake you, will I leave you in this place of heartache.
Bring me the hurts and wounds of this past season and lay them at my feet. Do not allow them to fester and burn. Untangle yourself from what is the past so that you may embrace the new thing that I am doing.
Trust me to put your heart back together, one piece at a time.

Activation: Sit with Jesus and write out a list of the heavy things you are carrying and ask him what He wants to give you in exchange. Lay down those burdens before Him and pick up the things He gives you in exchange.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)

There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.

Proverbs 23:18 (NIV)

Friday Morning Scripture (Wk19/2021) – Isaiah 29:17-24

Blessing after Discipline

17 Is it not yet a very little while until Lebanon will be turned into a fertile field, and the fertile field regarded as a forest?

18 On that day the deaf will hear the words of a book, and out of their gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind will see [the words of the book].

19 The afflicted also will increase their joy in the Lord, and the needy of mankind will rejoice and celebrate in the Holy One of Israel.

20 For the tyrant will come to an end and the scorner will be finished, indeed all who are intent on doing evil will be cut off—

21 Those who cause a person to be condemned with a [false] word, and lay a trap for him who upholds justice at the [city] gate, and defraud the one in the right with meaningless arguments.

22 Therefore, the Lord, who redeemed Abraham [from paganism] says this, concerning the house of Jacob (Israel):

“Jacob will not be ashamed, nor will his face turn pale [with disappointment because of his children’s degenerate behavior];

23 For when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst, they will sanctify My Name; they will sanctify the Holy One of Jacob and will stand in awe and reverent fear of the God of Israel.

24 “Those who err in mind will know the truth, and those who criticize and murmur discontentedly will accept instruction.

Isaiah 29:17-24 (AMP)

Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – Boldness

The spirit of the Lord says that it is time for boldness! It is time to stand up and be counted. It is time to cross the line and to put your head above the trenches. Are you willing to stand up for truth, for holiness, and for the glory of God even if it hurts or means you may lose your friends or reputation? Are you willing to be the “no-compromise” generation, putting your head above the parapet where others dare not? Are you willing to lay down your life for God and be bold in your witness, truth, and testimony of who he is? Will you be a bold witness to the ways and teachings of Christ? Will you boldly carry the message like Peter and the apostles who boldly spoke the word of God?

Activation: Picture yourself standing in front of a line and ask God to show you what you need to let go of or repent of, for where you have compromised in the past. Begin to step over the line and ask God to give you courage and boldness to stand up for truth and holiness, and to not compromise.

For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.

Matthew 16:26 (BSB)

Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – Time To Speak

Lift up your swords, my warriors, my brides. It is time to yield the sharp double edged sword and let the word – my word – go forth across the earth. Stand tall, my bride, and advance! Use your voice as a weapon, letting the sword cut through the fear, reaching the distraught, for there is a time to be quiet but also a time to speak. There is a time for war and a time for peace; it is time for war, not giving in to the enemy’s lies and deception, but to declare as Jesus did:

So declare my word on the streets, in the shops, in your houses, and in your dreams. Do not hold back, for my world needs to hear the truth:

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’

Matthew 4:4 (NIV)

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16 (NIV)

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12 (NIV)
