What Is This Revival We’re Looking For?

barbarayoderThe morning seemed strange. The dream was unique, unnerving.
There were several parts to it that left me seeking, vigilant. I shook
my head when I awakened. Was I in some sort of weird frame of mind? Was this
dream significant or one to be filed in the circular file? Was it the devil
just disturbing me, or was it God speaking to me? For a while I thought I was
just being harassed until I began to recall the totality of the dream and
review all its parts. I finally woke up to the fact that God was speaking to
me—I was not just having a pizza dream. A couple of parts from the dream are to be shared publicly.

Stand Firm Through the Power of Your Words

Stand Firm Through the Power of Your Words

barabaraI have felt
so strongly that we are in a season when God wants to bless us beyond our
wildest imagination. I have no idea what that really means. I just sense that
He is “on the way” to right some wrong or difficult situations, resolve
conflicts, break us out of very narrow places, heal all kinds of things from
physical to emotional to whatever, solve financial conundrums, etc.

With
that awareness has also been the sense that I must carefully watch what I say
and guard my expectations.

Most
of us are in situations that speak something very contrary to blessing. They
evoke feelings like worry, anxiety, despair, hopelessness, confusion,
depression, oppression, even outright anger. I don’t know what you are
experiencing but I am aware of my own situations. It is very easy to let the
wave of feelings overtake emotions and then suddenly, out my mouth pops a
perfectly wrong string of pronouncements. Those words set the stage for the
enemy of our soul to overtake us.

The New Movement Is In the Adverse Winds

The New Movement Is In the Adverse Winds

barbara yoderLast month adverse winds struck in the most
unsuspecting place: Arizona. Tornadoes came out of nowhere in a place no one
expects them to come. Tornadoes are whirlwinds, adverse winds. What is getting
ready to happen in Arizona?

Several months ago the
Lord spoke several things to me, not long paragraphs, just short phrases, to
give me hints about the future. One phrase was “fresh winds,” another
was “movement,” a third was “awakening and visitation.”

I inquired of the Lord
about the phrase, fresh winds. It seemed like all we were seeing were adverse
winds. In Michigan we have had several wind advisories for gusts up to 75 mph.
The day before Rosh Hashanah, the winds were so extreme in our area that they
blew down power lines in the city of Detroit. These power lines hit homes or
garages and, in at least five neighborhoods fires broke out. In all, 85 homes
were destroyed.

There Is a Rumbling in the Earth!

There Is a Rumbling in the Earth!

Barbara J. YoderI found this word in my file recently. I received it in July 2005. It was a very strange experience at the time because it came while I was in the midst of a panel discussion dealing with leaders. I was sitting behind a table on the platform at our church during a women’s conference where about 500 women were present.

Suddenly, it felt like we were having an earthquake. I could feel a distinct rumbling under my chair, as if all the earth under me were shaking. I not only felt it, I heard it. Everything was shaking—everything.

As I was re-reading this word recently, I heard the Lord say that it is for now. I did not send it out when I first received it. I held on to it.

I believe this word will help guide you, help create understanding in you about the times and seasons we are in, and give you the key to the door of deliverance.

Here is the word:

There is a rumbling in the earth. God is rumbling you out of mindsets, positions, identity, locations, relationships, bondages, fears. I was sitting here, and I could hear it. I could hear this constant ongoing and seemingly unending rumbling of rocks under us, and it was shaking everything. It was as if we were standing on rocks, round rocks, and they were all moving and rumbling. And they just kept rumbling. We could hardly maintain our footing.
