    The father says: Can these dry bones live? You will see what I intended, that my people should walk and talk in my name? I am the one who washes clean all of your equality. I have commanded you to love for I am a God who is all about relationships. The Christ in you will ensure you are an overcomer, what is in your heart, matters. Many have walked away before the cleansing was completed. Come and sit with me so that I can reveal the darkness in your heart. I am shifting the atmosphere into new things, new levels are obtainable but you must ask. You have not disqualified yourself from before me, I am opening new doors before you. You will walk confidently before your friends; many of my people have become content. If you want little you will receive little but I say come closer. I am blocking the negative thoughts and I am taking you higher.
    People have opinions about you, but that does not mean they are correct about you. Pride will keep you from setting yourself free. Many think they are clothed in righteousness but are carrying filthy rags. Trust what I am doing in and through you, be one who would serve others even if they slap you on the face. Carry my light and see the enemy run away from you, let only my opinions permeate your mind and soul. Release, forget, bless and move on, I love you with such unimaginable love. I am taking in your controversies, trials come and go, you are stronger than you give yourself credit for. Stand-up, for it is time to move, watch as I pour out a blessing upon you. You can't give what you do not have for I am your source. ,
    Release the outcomes to me, be a yielded vessel for we cannot fail. Jacob did not understand that it was by my spirit he overcame. I desire my people to not live in conflict over what I have told them. The desire in your heart came from me, choose to walk in freedom. You cannot be everything to everyone so do not allow others to lift you up. Do not become the sinner of your own world. I have said, my yoke is easy and my burden is light. I desire for you to experience everything I have for you. You are made for more, I desire for you to know me in all relationships. The enemy will try to rip off your peace, keep praying for the victory is yours. Pray without ceasing, vulnerability is not a bad concept. Come to me with all of your broken pieces, it is vital to keep your hearts wide open.
    What you experiencing today will help you through the storm later. Grab your bags for I am moving many of you to new territories. Do not become alarmed, for the enemy is setting traps for my people. I will deal with those who are against you, I am for you and not against you. I have allowed you to have a human experience, you are my precious child. Fear of the unknown and new territories I have for you to trample upon. Take back the land I have given you, it took decades to be where you are. I am calling many of you to new assignments, rejoice for you have grown much. Release the expectations of what you knew before and dance this very day.
    Your faith has commanded you to enjoy this blessing I will pour upon you. If you have sewed bad financial seeds, come before with repentance. Be diligent to reclaim what was lost, for all will say that it was only Yahweh who restored what I sewed badly. I can make beauty from ashes, my people need to understand that the cross changed everything. Push against the negative that comes to you. What have you asked for from me lately? You are but a spirit in a human body, you are not separated from heaven. Your life is far more that you can imagine, ask big and dig deep. When you request with unbelief, you cancel your request from me. I am limitless through your reality, I have promised, never to leave or forsake you, I cannot fail.
    Each day, I am moving you closer and closer to the boundary. My angels are dispatched to strengthen you, the world is shouting fear but who do you say that I am? Get up from your seat, my winds of change is surrounding you at this time. I a renewing your heart and mind. I have spoken favor and blessings over you for sometime now. The storm has ceased it's inner workings over you. Look up my Royal sons and daughters, my favor is riding over you for the moment. You will arrive on time. You are still standing and walking inspite of all that has come against you. Ignore the doubters and haters, I have put a coat of many colors over you. I am renewing your strength on your life now. I will give you what you could not do for yourself; those who raise weapons on you will beg for peace. The lack in your life is leaving, come up higher to see your purpose, complete turn-around is my specialty. Drop all your dead weight and come to the brook, I will give you clean hands and a pure heart. All of heaven are waiting with such expectation for you to taste my goodness after such a long drought.

    *These are the prophesies of Yahusha.

    * Repent; be baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who have not done so, for when the books are closed no one will be able to enter in.
