Jesus Will Remove the Dirt From His House

by JRP Ministry Staff on 10/02/20

Download PDF Version

In a vision I watched the Lord start vacuuming the dirt in a carpet.  He then got down on His hands and knees and began to search for dirt, deep between at the base of the fibers. 

The Holy Spirit has revealed that a deep cleansing is coming to the Body of Christ, His house.  He is going deep to expose the sin (dirt) and He will remove it.  The Lord has spoken to me saying, “None are as guilty as My Church.”  Current leaders of the Church, you have been warned!  Only one of the grave sins we are guilty of is the habitual sin of refusing to allow the Holy Spirit in power is grave rebellion.  If you do not choose to allow the Holy Spirit to flow like a mighty rushing River, then you will surely perish.  I speak by the Spirit of the Lord.

It is impossible for the Church or its individual members to steward the outpouring of the Holy Spirit without repenting of deeply embedded sin.  The scripture proclaims that in order for righteousness to flow through His people, there must be righteousness in His people -

 Malachi 3:2–6 (NASB95)

2“But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap.

3“He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the Lord offerings in righteousness.

4“Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the Lord as in the days of old and as in former years.

5“Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers and against the adulterers and against those who swear falsely, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages, the widow and the orphan, and those who turn aside the alien and do not fear Me,” says the Lord of hosts.

6“For I, the Lord, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.

 

Only after a deep cleansing of His people, only after the Lord, “…draws near to *[us] for judgment,” will we be fully prepared for a revival that requires offerings in righteousness.  Only after He purifies us like a smelter and a purifier of silver will we be able to receive Him and stand in His presence.

The Church has been praying for a spiritual awakening, but as I have said years ago, it will be a rude awakening beginning with judgment.  Judgment has already started and it will only intensify because our theology has been corrupted with the doctrines of demons, the wisdom of man and the teachers of false light.

We must understand that we stand before the Lord as guilty as the Church of Laodicea.  We believe we are rich and have become wealthy and have need of nothing.  The truth of our spiritual condition is that we are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked (Rev 3:17).  Jesus stated emphatically that the kingdom of God belongs to the poor in spirit (Matt 5:3) and who are poor (Luke 6:20); disciples of Christ know, not at the academic/purely cognitive level, but it has been revealed to their hearts what their desperate and impoverished condition is before Him.

The Lord revealed to me years ago that He would bring reluctant Christians into His fire.  He said, “They don’t want to come to Me.  It is too hot.  They will not come on their own accord, so I am pulling them in.”  I then watched as people began to enter the flame, screaming in agony because of the fire.  It was clear they were in anguish.  They were pulled into and through fire.  When they went through the flames they came out glowing with the presence of God emanating from within.1

This is the price of the revival we have been praying for.  Salvation was purchased through the blood that Jesus Christ shed on the cross and is free to all; revival that is coming will cost us everything.  We must take up His cross and follow Him.  Jesus taught the following -

Matthew 16:25 (NASB95)

25“For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.

The Lord is calling all of us to a new level of consecration and holiness.  He will not relate to us at the level we are at now.  We must choose to move higher in the Spirit and be done with the flesh that so easily entangles (Heb 12:1 NASB95).  His desire is to promote us to move at the level of authority and power required for the days we are in and those that will soon be upon us.  However, we must count the cost.  To have more of His presence, we must give Him permission to do a deep work in us.

We have been crying out in prayers and songs asking the Lord to, “let it rain…open the floodgates of Heaven and let it rain,”2 not realizing that we have a responsibility before the Lord to be His floodgates.  In Psalm 24 it says, “Lift up your heads , O gates, and be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in!” (Ps 24:7 NASB95)  The Lord wants to pour out His Holy Spirit more than we want Him to, but we must decide to allow His Spirit to flow through us and surrender yet again to His will going forward.  We cannot move in the authority, power and glory He has destined us for without giving Him a blank check to do whatever He wants to do in AND through us.

New PDF Document Available - Part 1: Judging the Dana Coverstone Brace Yourself Dreams (#1 - #6) Major Themes

Link to PDF Document  Part 1:  Dana Coverstone Dreams #1 - #6  

I can't remember a prophetic word coming forth in recent history that has elevated the discussion and awareness of judgment coming to the Church, America and the nations more than Pastor Dana Coverstone's dreams.  The difference in these dreams has to do with a specific timeline of progressive judgment being released.  No doubt, the timing is what has caught many people's attention.

At the leading of the Lord, I have prepared the first of what I believe will be a series of documents, paired with videos, where I analyze and review, i.e. judge as Paul said in I Cor 14:29, Dana's dreams in the light of Scripture as well as what the Lord has revealed to me over the years.  This document deals with major themes that are set forth.

We need to discern the times and the prophetic words that the Lord is releasing to His Body.  By, in and through the Holy Spirit we are called upon to test prophetic words to determine if they are true and sent by The One who is truth - Jesus Christ.

Will the New Supreme Court Nominee Be Approved by the Senate?

by JRP Ministry Staff on 09/29/20

There is a good deal of talk about being one vote away from losing our liberty and freedom in America, referring to the Supreme Court. Will a conservative win the support of the U.S. Senate? Maybe...but that isn't the central question. The real questions are as follows:

When will the Church repent?

When will pastors allow the Holy Spirit the freedom to be who He is in His own house and to move in and through His own people?

When will pastors repent of their rebellion against the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus?

Do you want to retain your freedom, Church? Then repent and return to the Living God and submit to the Holy Spirit.

The Judgment of the Fires in California & Northwest Demand a Response – Repent!

by JRP Ministry Staff on 09/25/20

In a vision I saw the Lord watching the wildfires.  I could see the flames and thick billowing smoke.  I related this on a video dated September 16, 2020 that can be seen here à Judgment Demands A Response.

He turned around to me with tears in His eyes saying, “They are not responding.”  I can say emphatically that the wildfires in California are indeed judgment from the Lord that He told us would come in a prophetic word I released on June 11, 2020.  In that word, the Lord said, “You have seen fires, but you haven’t seen anything yet.”

The California & Oregon fires are the largest in either states’ history.  California now reports that 26 lives have been lost, with a total of 8,000+ wildfires have burned over  3.6 million acres (26 times more than during the same time period in 2019) and 6900+ structures have been lost.  Five of the current fires are in the top six fires in California recorded history.  As of September 10, Gov. Kate Brown of Oregon reported that 900,000 acres had been burned.  She said that the normal average in a year is 500,000 acres in a single year.   That translates to an 80% increase.

Does all of this qualify for what the Lord said, “You haven’t seen anything yet”?  Without a doubt.

Therefore, what is the response the Lord is looking for?  Clearly firefighters are responding to the fires, but what about the citizens of California and Oregon?  Moreover, what is the Church doing to respond to the judgment that has fallen upon their states?  Are they repenting or just praying that the Lord would intervene with more favorable weather conditions?

The Lord has been very clear about His plan and His purpose regarding releasing judgment against California and the nation.  He will not relent until there is repentance across this country.  He will have righteousness in America and He will not stop pouring out His wrath and vengeance until we turn, cry out for mercy AND repent.

Church, when will you face the truth that judgment has been and continues to be poured out on this country?  Church leaders, when will you stop telling your people that, “…everything is going to be alright”?  It is time to stop your messages of denial.  If there isn’t widespread repentance in the Church and in America, the intensity of judgment will only increase.  More severe judgment is coming!  When will you turn Church and repent of not listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit?!  Hear the words of the Lord through the prophet Jeremiah –

Jeremiah 7:20–24 (NASB95)

20Therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, My anger and My wrath will be poured out on this place, on man and on beast and on the trees of the field and on the fruit of the ground; and it will burn and not be quenched.” 21Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, “Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices and eat flesh. 22“For I did not speak to your fathers, or command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings and sacrifices. 23“But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you.’ 24“Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in their own counsels and in the stubbornness of their evil heart, and went backward and not forward.

Church, you are moving backward at full speed!  You are not on the cutting edge; you are dull of hearing and refuse to hear and obey the voice of the Holy Spirit.  You are full of confusion and America is suffering because of it.  When will you turn Church leaders?  When will you learn?

The Glory Road & The Road of Poverty

by JRP Ministry Staff on 09/25/20

I saw leanness that would come in the days ahead, but it was part of one of two paths. We are coming to a fork in the road. One road led people into poverty and lack; the people on this road had been led down a path as they served the god of money. They were poor and barely clothed.

I then saw the other road. I saw the hand of the Lord pouring out His glory along this road. It is what I will call the "Glory Road". The Lord will begin to make a differentiation between those who follow Him and those who follow the god of money. Those on the Glory Road will be supplied and Isaiah 60 provides a scriptural context for what we can expect. There is no doubt that taking the Glory Road will require faith, revelation and obedience.

The prophet Isaiah prophesies saying, "Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth, and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you, and His glory will appear upon you." (Isa 60:1-2)

I saw the people on the road of poverty begin to move over to the Glory Road. They saw the difference between where they were and what was being poured out upon those on the Glory Road. As the Lord's glory rises upon us, Isaiah prophesied (Is 60:3) that, "The nations will come to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising." The rest of Isaiah chapter 60 speaks of a mighty harvest of souls and nations and an abundance of wealth coming to the Church. What is promised in this chapter will come to pass.

Good People Are Dying, But No One Considers What Is Really Going On

by JRP Ministry Staff on 09/17/20

Isaiah 42:18–25 (NASB95)
18 Hear, you deaf! And look, you blind, that you may see.
19 Who is blind but My servant [*the Christian], Or so deaf as My messenger [*the pastors and preachers] whom I send? Who is so blind as he that is at peace with Me, Or so blind as the servant of the LORD [*the believer and Church leader]?
20 You have seen many things, but you do not observe them; Your ears are open, but none hears.
21 The LORD was pleased for His righteousness’ sake To make the law great and glorious.
22 But this is a people [*the Church & America] plundered and despoiled; All of them are trapped in caves, Or are hidden away in prisons; They have become a prey with none to deliver them, And a spoil, with none to say, “Give them back!”
23 Who among you will give ear to this? Who will give heed and listen hereafter?
24 Who gave Jacob [*the Church and America] up for spoil, and Israel [*the Church & America] to plunderers? Was it not the LORD, against whom we have sinned, And in whose ways they were not willing to walk, And whose law they did not obey?
25 So He poured out on him the heat of His anger And the fierceness of battle; And it set him aflame all around, Yet he did not recognize it; And it burned him, but he paid no attention.

The Lord has only begun to pour out His wrath upon America, as well as the Church, and neither understands nor considers what is going on. As the wild fires have raged in California, who has responded to the Lord by repenting of their sins? Which pastors have led their congregations in repentance inside or outside of California or Washington?

Without repentance, greater judgments will certainly come. Why do you choose to die, America?

Ezekiel 18:31–32 (NASB95)
31“Cast away from you all your transgressions which you have committed and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! For why will you die, O house of Israel [*Church & America]?
32“For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies,” declares the Lord GOD. “Therefore, repent and live.”

[*] - Added for emphasis, because we have a bad habit of reading the Bible, if we read it, yet we do not apply it to ourselves. We believe we are immune to judgment.

Don't Be Deceived About Sexual Immorality

by JRP Ministry Staff on 09/14/20

1 Corinthians 6:9–10 (NASB95)
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

That is the bottom line. Having sex before marriage? That is fornication, it is sin and it is rampant in the Church. If you are guilty of sexual immorality, it's time to repent and stop. If you are living with the other person, move out. It's time to get right with Jesus, ask His forgiveness, stop sinning and move out if you are living with the person you are sinning with. Get away from the temptation.

Jesus isn't playing games. He doesn't play games like the Church and it He isn't playing games with California's governor or the state legislature as they bow to the sexually immoral LGBTQ attempting to make what is evil, good. They want to ease penalties for those who prey on teenagers.

Jesus put it this way in Matthew 18:5–6 (NASB95)
5 “And whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me; 6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea."
Don't be deceived.

Prophetic Context for Fires in California & the Northwest 09.12.20


In this video, I share the current statistics regarding the fires in California and Oregon.  I also discuss three prophetic visions that I released in January 2014 and June 20 & 23, 2020.  The Lord is doing what He said He would do.  He isn't playing games.  Judgment is hitting America and will only continue AND intensify according to everything the Lord has revealed to me and what we all can read in Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28.  Every Church leader, indeed, every Christian should understand what is essentially the Lord's playbook for judgment.  But make no mistake, the Lord isn't playing games.  He will not relent until there is righteousness in the Church and in America.

You may want to do a number of things to prepare, but the one thing take priority and that is to seek the Lord for those wicked things that He wants you to deal with, repent and seek His face.  Repent because He will not relent until we do.
