Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – Fourth Man in the Fire

I am calling my people into wild partnership with me and to partake in my untamed nature. As the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, I am roaring fire on and over my people to claim them and to warn the enemy to back-off.

My goal is to get you to a place of surrender and trust just like the three Hebrew boys who entered the fiery furnace and came out not even smelling like smoke. Receive the fire I am pouring out on my beloved ones and allow me to do my work in you. Be purified by it and get aligned with me by allowing my fire to burn up anything standing between us.

When you are surrendered to my plans and purposes, there is no limit to what we will accomplish together.

24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his [1]counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?”

They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”

25 “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the[2] Son of God.”

27 And the satraps, administrators, governors, and the king’s counselors gathered together, and they saw these men on whose bodies the fire had no power; the hair of their head was not singed nor were their garments affected, and the smell of fire was not on them.

Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – Turning Point

You are hitting a turning point. Sudden changes are about to come. Direction and a way for your next steps are becoming visible. You have been waiting and persevering for that in the last months not knowing where I will take you to. Now is the time where you will start to see and things will unfold in front of you.

Things will be so clear for you and you will know what to do and where to go.

In this stay flexible and ready to step out into unchartered waters. I will use you in ways you never thought would be possible for you. Transformation will happen through you and around you. Especially in your family. Watch out as I will touch those you thought are too far away from me. I will heal and restore some of your family members in a miraculous way. They will be my living testimony of how I can change a Saul into a Paul.

There are many adventures ahead waiting for you.

If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned.

John 15:6 (ESV)

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

Galatians 6:9 (ESV)

2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”

3 The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad.

Psalm 126:2-3 (ESV)

Friday Morning Scripture (Wk47/2022) – John 15:1-11

Jesus Is The Vine – Followers Are Branches

1[1]I am the true Vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.

2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that continues to bear fruit, He[repeatedly] prunes, so that it will bear more fruit [even richer and finer fruit].

3 You are already clean because of the word which I have given you [the teachings which I have discussed with you].

4 Remain in Me, and I[will remain] in you. Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself without remaining in the vine, neither can you [bear fruit, producing evidence of your faith] unless you remain in Me.

5 [2]I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.

6 If anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken off] branch, and withers and dies; and they gather such branches and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

7 If you remain in Me and My words remain in you [that is, if we are vitally united and My message lives in your heart], ask whatever you wish and it will be done for you.

8 My Father is glorified and honoured by this, when you bear much fruit, and prove yourselves to be My [true] disciples.

9 I have loved you just as the Father has loved Me; remain in My love [and do not doubt My love for you].

10 If you keep My commandments and obey My teaching, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love.

11 I have told you these things so that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy may be made full and complete and overflowing.

Friday Morning Scripture (Wk47/2022) – Galatians 6

Bear One Another’s Burdens

1 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any sin, you who are spiritual [that is, you who are responsive to the guidance of the Spirit] are to restore such a person in a spirit of gentleness [not with a sense of superiority or self-righteousness], keeping a watchful eye on yourself, so that you are not tempted as well.

2 Carry one another’s burdens and in this way you will fulfill the requirements of the law of Christ [that is, the law of Christian love].

3 For if anyone thinks he is something [special] when [in fact] he is nothing [special except in his own eyes], he deceives himself.

4 But each one must carefully scrutinize his own work [examining his actions, attitudes, and behavior], and then he can have the personal satisfaction and inner joy of doing something commendable [1]without comparing himself to another.

5 For every person will have to bear [with patience] his own burden [of faults and shortcomings for which he alone is responsible].

6 The one who is taught the word [of God] is to share all good things with his teacher [contributing to his spiritual and material support].

7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked [He will not allow Himself to be ridiculed, nor treated with contempt nor allow His precepts to be scornfully set aside]; for whatever a man sows, this and this only is what he will reap.

8 For the one who sows to his flesh [his sinful capacity, his worldliness, his disgraceful impulses] will reap from the flesh ruin and destruction, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

9 Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in.

10 So then, while we [as individual believers] have the opportunity, let us do good to all people [not only being helpful, but also doing that which promotes their spiritual well-being], and especially [be a blessing] to those of the household of faith (born-again believers).

11 See with what [2]large letters I [3]am writing to you with my own hand.

12 Those who want to make a good impression in public [before the Jews] try to compel you to be circumcised, just so they will escape being persecuted for [faithfulness to] the cross of Christ.

13 For even the circumcised [Jews] themselves do not [really] keep the Law, but they want to have you circumcised so that they may boast in your flesh [that is, in the fact that they convinced you to be circumcised].

14 But far be it from me to boast [in anything or anyone], except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

15 For neither is circumcision anything [of any importance], nor uncircumcision, but [only] a new creation [which is the result of a new birth—a spiritual transformation—a new nature in Christ Jesus].

16 Peace and mercy be upon all who walk by this rule [who discipline themselves and conduct their lives by this principle], and upon the [true] Israel of God (Jewish believers).

17 From now on let no one trouble me [by making it necessary for me to justify my authority as an apostle, and the absolute truth of the gospel], for I bear on my body the [4]branding-marks of Jesus [the wounds, scars, and other outward evidence of persecutions—these testify to His ownership of me].

18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, my [5]brothers and sisters. Amen.

Galatians 6:1-18 (AMP)

Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – Friend

My wind of change is blowing. It is blowing away the old and making way for the new to come. Grace is lifting off of spectating; off of watching from the sidelines. I have plans for you and for my church. I have poured my Spirit out to empower you. I am looking for friends and for partners who will enter my gates with thanksgiving and come before my throne in praise, those who will sit and reason together with me. Those who know that together we are a majority in any situation.

3 He lays the beams of his chambers on the waters; He makes the clouds His chariot; He rides on the wings of the wind;

4 He makes His messengers winds, His ministers a flaming fire.

5 He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved.

Psalm 104:3-5 (ESV)

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.”

So Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him and let none of his words [1]fall to the ground.

Thursday Morning Scripture (Wk47/2022) – 1 Samuel 3

The Prophetic Call to Samuel

The Prophetic Call to Samuel

1 Now the boy Samuel was attending to the service of the Lord [1]under the supervision of Eli. The word of the Lord was rare and precious in those days; visions [that is, new revelations of divine truth] were not widespread.

2 Yet it happened at that time, as Eli was lying down in his own place (now his eyesight had begun to grow dim and he could not see well).

3 and the [oil] lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down in the temple of the Lord, where the ark of God was,

4 that the Lord called Samuel, and he answered, “Here I am.”

5 He ran to Eli and said, “Here I am, for you called me.” But Eli said, “I did not call you; lie down again.” So he went and lay down.

6 Then the Lord called yet again, “Samuel!” So Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, “Here I am, for you called me.” But Eli answered, “I did not call, my son; lie down again.”

7 Now Samuel did not yet know [or personally experience] the Lord, and the word of the Lord was not yet revealed [directly] to him.

8 So the Lord called Samuel a third time. And he stood and went to Eli and said, “Here I am, for you did call me.” Then Eli understood that it was the Lord [who was] calling the boy.

9 So Eli said to Samuel, “Go, lie down, and it shall be that if He calls you, you shall say, ‘Speak, Lord, for Your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

10 Then the Lord came and stood and called as at the previous times, “Samuel! Samuel!” Then Samuel answered, “Speak, for Your servant is listening.”

11 The Lord said to Samuel, “Behold, I am about to do a thing in Israel at which both ears of everyone who hears it will ring.

12 On that day I will carry out against Eli everything that I have spoken concerning his house (family), from beginning to end.

13 Now I have told him that I am about to judge his house forever for the sinful behavior which he knew [was happening], because his sons were bringing a curse on themselves [dishonoring and blaspheming God] and he did not rebuke them.

14 Therefore I have sworn to the house of Eli that the sinful behavior of Eli’s house (family) shall not be atoned for by sacrifice or offering forever.”

15 So Samuel lay down until morning. Then he opened the doors of the Lord’s house. But Samuel was afraid to tell the vision to Eli.

16 But Eli called Samuel and said, “Samuel, my son.” And he answered, “Here I am.”

17 Then Eli said, “What is it that He said to you? Please do not hide it from me. May God do the same to you, and more also, if you hide from me anything of all that He said to you.”

18 So Samuel told him everything, hiding nothing from him. And Eli said, “It is the Lord; may He do what seems good [2]to Him.”

19 Now Samuel grew; and the Lord was with him and He let none of his words [3]fail [to be fulfilled].

20 And all Israel from Dan [in the north] to Beersheba [in the south] knew that Samuel was appointed as a prophet of the Lord.

21 And the Lord continued to appear in Shiloh, for the Lord revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord.

Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – Bold?

And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness…. And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness. (Acts 4:29, 31)

Are you an accurate witness of who the Lord is? Or do you feel that you do not know people well enough to be witnessing in depth about Him in your life? Sometimes you are called to be bold, adventurous, extending healing prayer, words of knowledge over strangers, perhaps challenging presuppositions about spiritual things. Other times it is to share the day-to-day realities of life in a fallen world with closer friends.

The Lord is saying ‘I have boldness available to those who will bear witness of me. My boldness is not human-like, where teeth are gritted to achieve a new thing. It comes from my people laying down their lives before me and asking for increased boldness for that minute, that conversation, that stepping out in faith. Church, do not hide yourself away behind doors, be more visible on the earth.’

Reflection: Boldness is contagious. When we are bold for Christ, enduring hardships for our faith, others are provoked to do the same. Talk about these things amongst your friends and consider finding someone to be accountable to in this regard. Speak words of increasing boldness and faith over each other.

Psalm of David

1 I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; before the “gods” I will sing your praise.

3 When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me.

Psalm 138 1,3 (NIV)

And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.

Philippians 1:14 (NIV)
