1. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE STAGNATE BECAUSE THEY DID NOT MOVE WHEN GOD SAID
SHIFT, EITHER BECAUSE OF DISOBEDIENCE OR THEY DIDN'T TAKE THAT WORD SERIOUS.
AS A RESULT IT HAS LEAD TO A STACK OF CHALLENGES IN THEIR OWN PERSONAL LIFE.
DISOBEDIENCE COSTS YOU A LOT.

2. GOD DOESN'T WANT YOU TO BE INTIMIDATED BY ANOTHER MAN'S ANOINTING,
APPOINTMENT, OR ASSIGNMENT. HE HAS NOT CALLED EVERYBODY TO DO THE SAME
THING. YOU ARE NOT CALLED TO DO THE SAME THING AS ANOTHER MAN.

3. YOU DON'T NEED TO SHARE YOUR VISION, OR YOUR SECRETS AND PLANS WITH ANY AND
EVERYBODY. IF THE LORD DON'T SPECIFICALLY  TELL YOU TO SHARE IT WITH SOMEONE
ELSE, THEN KEEP IT A SECRET, BECAUSE THE ENEMY ALREADY HAS A PLAN TO
OVERTHROW YOUR VISION BEFORE YOU EVEN GET STARTED.

4. FOR ALL MINISTERS YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO SHARE EXACTLY WHAT GOD HAS TOLD
YOU AND GIVEN YOU FOR THE PEOPLE, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE PEOPLE MIGHT SAY
OR THINK.

5. YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO PRACTICE GIVING ON ANOTHER LEVEL THAT REQUIRE SOME
FAITH VERSUS WHAT YOU CAN COMFORTABLE DO ON YOUR OWN STRENGTH.

6. FOR ALL MINISTERS WRONG ALIGNMENTS IN THIS SEASON CAN TOTALLY DESTROY
YOUR MINISTRIES. YOU MUST BE CAREFUL WITH ALL ALIGNMENTS IN THIS YEAR AND
FORWARD. THE RIGHT ALIGNMENTS WILL PROSPER YOU, BUT THE WRONG ALIGNMENTS
SHALL HARM YOU, SAYS THE LORD! MAKE SURE THAT YOU ALIGN YOURSELF WITH
RIGHTEOUSNESS AND NOT EVIL.

7. BY MID JUNE TO SEPTEMBER, THERE WILL HAVE BEEN A COMPLETE CHANGE AND SHIFT
IN THE LAND. EVERYTHING WILL HAVE COMPLETELY CHANGED IN THE LAND, IN THE
GOVERNMENT OF YOUR NATION, THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE NATIONS, IN THE CHURCH
REALM, AND IN THE ECONOMIC STRUCTURES OF ALL NATIONS AND YOU NEED TO BE
READY AND PREPARED NOW FOR WHAT'S COMING.

8. I NEED TO REMIND YOU THAT 2009 IS A YEAR OF FIRE. THAT IS WHY YOU HAVE BEEN
SEEING FIRES EVERYDAY IN THE NEWS NATURALLY, BUT THERE HAS BEEN A RAGING FIRE
SPIRITUALLY AND IN THE SPIRIT REALM OR THE UNSEEN REALM. PRINCIPALITIES HAVE
BEEN WARRING.

9. THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE SUFFERING IN THE LAND BECAUSE THEY HAVE CHOSEN
THEIR OWN PATHS AND FEEDING GROUNDS.
FOR ALL SAINTS, YOU DO NOT CHOOSE
WHERE YOU GO TO CHURCH AT, OR YOU DO NOT CHOOSE YOUR PASTORS; THE LORD
ASSIGNS YOU TO YOUR PLACE IN THE KINGDOM AND TO THE CHURCH OR BROOK OF HIS
CHOICE FOR YOU TO BE FEED SO YOU CAN GROW AND BE DEVELOPED. (
READ JEREMIAH
3:15 and 1 CORINTHIANS 12:28
)

10. DON'T BE PARTAKERS OF ANOTHER MAN'S SINS. THE LORD SAYS "DO NOT HAVE
ANYTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING THAT IS NOT RIGHT",
ESPECIALLY THOSE OF YOU IN
MINISTRY
; SO THE SAME JUDGEMENT THAT COMES ON THEM WILL NOT COME ON YOU.
SEE 2 JOHN 1:10-11, ISAIAH 30:1-5, ISAIAH 31:1-3, JUDE 20-24

11
. YOU CANNOT HAVE FEAR INSIDE OF YOU IN THIS SEASON. YOU CANNOT BE AFRAID TO
GO WHERE THE LORD WANTS YOU TO GO IN THIS SEASON. YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO
MOVE WHEN GOD SAYS MOVE.

12. MAKE SURE THAT WHEN YOU ARE PRAYING THAT YOU ARE PRAYING THE WILL OF GOD
AND NOT YOUR OWN WILL.  A LOT OF CHRISTIANS PRAYERS ARE NOT BEING ANSWERED
SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ARE PRAYING AGAINST GOD AND PRAYING OUT OF THEIR OWN
SELFISH MOTIVES; THIS INCLUDES ENTIRE PEOPLE GROUPS AND EVEN SOME VERY WELL
KNOWN INTERCESSORY PRAYER LEADERS AND GROUPS.

13. IF YOU HAVE BEEN FEELING A LITTLE FUNNY LATELY, OR IF YOU ARE COMPELLED TO
DO SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE, IT MAY BE BECAUSE SOMEONE IS PRAYING TO THE LORD
THAT HE WILL PUT IT IN YOUR HEART TO DO SOMETHING SPECIFICALLY FOR THEM. THAT
IS WITCHCRAFT. HOWEVER, IF THIS IS THE CASE, THEN THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL SHOW YOU
AND CONFIRM THIS TO YOU. HE WILL GIVE YOU THE ABILITY TO DISCERN BETWEEN WHEN
THE LORD IS PUTTING SOMETHING IN YOUR HEART TO DO SOMETHING FOR OTHERS OR
WHEN THERE IS A SPIRIT OF WITCHCRAFT BEING PRAYED ON YOU BY OTHERS TO TRY TO
GET YOU TO CONFORM TO OR DO THEIR WILL FOR THEIR OWN SELFISH GAINS. THERE IS
A DIFFERENCE WHEN PEOPLE ARE CALLING YOUR NAME IN PRAYER FOR GOD TO MAKE
YOU DO SOMETHING FOR THEM, AND YOU BEING NATURALLY LED BY THE LORD TO DO
SOMETHING FOR THEM. THIS IS THE SAME POWER OF SATAN THAT HE USES TO CAST
SPELLS, VEXES, HEXES, CURSES, OR ENCHANTMENTS ON A PERSON, AND SATAN IS
BEHIND YOU FEELING A CERTAIN WAY TO DO SOMETHING FOR A PERSON VERSUS IT
BEING THE LORD'S LEADING. THE LORD'S LEADING COMES WITH PEACE, AND IT IS A
GENTLE NUDGE OR NUDGING, NOT A PRESSURE TEST, BUT YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO
KNOW THE DIFFERENCE IN THIS SEASON, SAITH THE LORD!

14. IN THIS SEASON YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT
IS GOD AND WHAT IS OF THE DEVIL. THERE ARE A LOT OF CHRISTIANS THAT DON'T KNOW
AND THEY ARE CAUGHT UP IN ALL KINDS OF THINGS, INCLUDING SATANIC AND OCCULT
PRACTICES THAT ARE BEING DONE IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, BUT IT IS A SYSTEM OF
MOCKERY AND AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD! YOU HAVE TO PRAY FOR THOSE TYPE OF
SAINTS THAT ARE CAUGHT UP IN THAT KIND OF DECEPTION AND EVIL. PRAY THAT THE
LORD WILL SHOW THEM THE TRUTH AND THAT THEIR EYES WOULD BE OPENED SO THAT
THEY WILL BE ABLE TO COME OUT OF THAT GROSS AND EXTREME DARKNESS.
(SEE JUDE
17-25)

15
. MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE PAYING TITHES AND GIVING OFFERINGS. DON'T ROB GOD
OF AN OPPORTUNITY TO BLESS YOU. TITHES AND THE GIVING OF OFFERINGS IS HOW HE
BLESSES YOU FINANCIALLY, NOT JUST BY YOU PRAYING FOR A FINANCIALLY BLESSING.
HE WORKS WITH A FINANCIAL SEED OFFERING OF YOUR GIVING. (
SEE 2 CORINTHIANS
9:6-15, LUKE 6:38, MARK 4:26-29, ECCLESIASTES 11:1-6, GALATIANS 6:7
)

2009 MID YEAR OVERVIEW
Many jobs are being shaken, including the Lord's people, because he has been trying to get many
of his people to start their own companies and to venture out in their own business, but many have
remained in their comfort zone and settling for just a job with no plan for the future at all, so they
are being shaken and laid off for a purpose. It's time to start that business. However, many of those
that lost a job shall be fully restored in this hour by the mercy of the Lord, but God is not changing
his mind for those of you that he has called to start your own business, company, or corporation
for his kingdom purposes. Many of you reading this shall become employers, owners, and be your
own CEO and the president of your own company for a greater cause and kingdom purpose to help
fund the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is going to use you and your finances to make it all
happen.
