Greetings, Faithful Saints!
Recognizing our profound calling, welcoming the Father’s presence we offer Him our best in partnership with Him in the purpose of His heart. Ardently seeking, persistently searching, desperately we incline ourselves toward the Source of our life, ensuring a depth of root as we wait upon Him. May the fire of our pursuit of Him never be extinguished! [Pastor]
Let us not be entangled with the cares of this world, for much is at stake. Embracing our strategic positioning, we stand and man the gates and doors, putting aside every distraction, for there is much work to be done. With holy anticipation at what lies before us to be accomplished on behalf of His Kingdom, we look ahead to a season of preparation and sowing, concurrently distributing the fruitful yield granted to us by God. May our sacrifice of service be pleasing to Him, holy and acceptable. [Apostle]
Guided by the heart of God, He has gifted to the saints sakal, or insight, to understand and prosper in our spirits in prudent and intelligent ways to be successful in apostolic ministry. Holding onto Him, He directs our paths. [Teacher]
Judgment and burning are being deposited in the earth, that the purity of God’s plan and purpose, and His glory and presence may be known in the restoration of His beloved footstool. He has commissioned us for a mission of great breakthrough, to function in the authority of Jesus, through His precious blood. Now this is our triumph and confidence, and our moment of destiny, the moment for which we were made. [Evangelist]
Chosen as those through whom His victorious power will be displayed for all the world to see, we rejoice in the honor that God has given to us as saints; not boasting of ourselves, but only in the Lord and in knowing Him. His mercies are new every morning, and He strengthens us to move forward in His plan and purpose. He is with us. He is our portion. [Prophet]
Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. Proverbs 8:32-35

FIRST SATURDAY PRAYER INSIGHTS
There is a uniqueness to the time of fruitfulness, and its challenges are subtle. Having survived an uncaring and hardened field, and ensuring a depth of root, fruitfulness is where the saints currently find ourselves. We must evaluate and act, quickly and efficiently. Are cares robbing us of needed resources to make our fruit complete and ripened? Are other passions, even the cares of seedlings, destroying the completion of our full term? Are we wisely looking ahead to the needs of the coming season of preparation and sowing, while distributing the fruitful yield God has granted us? The great husbandman is carefully looking upon His fields, and expects our best in partnership with Him.

Our most profound calling is to welcome His Presence and to partner with Him in the purpose of His heart. With all that is going on around us, and all that is on the horizon, prayer was saturated with that one thing…that one revelation. My prayer was that the fire of our pursuit of Him would never go out. That our sacrifice would be pleasing to Him, that it would be holy and acceptable, which is our reasonable service. And that we would not conform to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds, living, breathing and proving the good and perfect will of God.

God ’s gift to Israel through his rulers and teachers was insight or sakal, Jeremiah 3:15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding (sakal). This Hebrew word sakal relates to an intelligent knowledge of the reason. There is the process of thinking through a complex arrangement of thoughts resulting in a wise dealing and use of good practical common sense. David indicated that the Lord made him understand (sakal) the details of the pattern of temple furniture. 1 Chronicles 28:19 All this, said David, the LORD made me understand (sakal) in writing by his hand upon me, even all the works of this pattern.
God’s gift to the Saints Network and The Father’s Church is the sakal. We are prospering in our spirits in a very prudent and intelligent way. We will be successful in our apostolic ministry and act wisely when directed to a people group or location. As the Spirit of God leads us, He is offering opportunities we will consider and pay attention to with skillful behavior. If we should boast of anything we have insight into, it should be because we know God.
Jeremiah 9:23-24 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: 24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

God is with us, Elohim is with us. The heart of the Father is guiding us. His Spirit is pushing us forward. Open your heart to receive all God has for you. It’s a beautiful day in Him, rejoice in the fellowship of the Spirit.

I’m thankful that His mercies are new every morning…and His kindness and goodness are extended to His sons. He is surrounding us and keeping us and trying us all for the purpose of making us. We cannot fathom the intricate details that are being refined and areas of weakness fortified in the season.
He is requiring us to extend our roots deep to get to the water. We are experiencing a growth spurt. We must ardently seek, persistently search, desperately incline ourselves toward the Source of our life. Then our trees will grow and bear luscious abundant fruit.
~ ~ ~
The Lord desires to meet with us individually in heavenly places, but it’s essential that we put aside every distraction and wait on Him. He won’t share His time with our distractions in this season, there is too much at stake. Either we’re in all the way and yielded fully, or we’re wasting our time. He’s asking for everything and every measure of our life. We have nothing to lose by yielding fully and everything to gain in Him. And He’s going to ask His sons to lay things down in this season. It’s a test of obedience and what’s in our hearts.

I had a vision of what looked like a giant digital screen with a dark blue background and bright lights sparkling all across the screen. It looked as if I was looking into outer space. I watched as a white outline of building blocks was rapidly being drawn in the lower right corner of the screen.
~ ~ ~
I have heard the Lord say, “hold on to me and I will direct your path.” We are entering a New Season with the Father. One of answered prayers and of New Beginnings. Perets and Perats season.

The Lord spoke to me about His victorious power and how He will display it for all the world to see through His chosen ones. As saints we must rejoice in this honor God has given us. To live in, walk in, and exhibit His power in the face of all the demonic bluster modern media trumpets.
1 Corinthians 4:9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.

I saw the saints standing and manning gates and doors. We were continuing to stand in His purpose for this year of break through! I saw the Lord rejoicing over us with great favor and life. There is a great flow going through those doors and gates! It looked like a great wind that was the colors of the 7 Spirits.
Proverbs 8:32-35 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.

Luke 10:16-18 16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. 17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. 18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Jesus saw Satan falling from Heaven as lightning as the 70 sent out fulfilled their assignment. This is Satan failing to maintain his possession. His failure is quick and instant as a flash. He cannot bring injustice against us before the Throne of God, as we function in the authority of Jesus, given to us through our contact with His blood. This is our triumph NOW! This is our confidence NOW! This is our moment of Destiny!

I saw a giant barber shop pole (red, white, and blue) turning from left to right and digging deep into the earth as it spun. It was depositing judgement and burning, the purity of God’s plan and purpose, as well as His glory and presence….. all measures of restoration for His beloved footstool. We, as Saints, pray it forward. There is much work to be done as we embrace our strategic positioning. We are vital in the Kingdom.

I felt the Father’s strengthening in this month of new beginnings. While the enemy has attempted to throw up attacks against the Saints in many forms, Father reminded me of the word He released this past week: To get to those broad open places, we’re going to have to walk through the catastrophes. Father is giving each of us the victory to overcome. And that strengthening – in our contriteness – has made us ready to stand at the edge of these broad open places and prepare to move forward in His plan and purpose. Thank You, Father for Your victories in the Saints Network, however You choose to bring those about.

Psalm 73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. Be encouraged, our God is with us!

In this 8th month of new beginnings, all of the Saints were gathered before the Throne. The heavenly host and great cloud of witnesses were there to witness and add their agreement. The Saints were all kneeling before the Father and He was commissioning them for a mission of great break through. I could sense the holy anticipation at what lay before us – of what was to be accomplished on behalf of the Kingdom.

I thank the Lord for the peace and stillness of the morning, it was a time of Honor at His throne.
1 Peter.2.9 But we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar special people. that you should show forth the praises of Him, who has called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
We praise you for your word.

August 2023 – Summary
Through the multiple expressions of the Spirit, our voices are raised in one breath to the Throne where, prostrate before the beauty of His majesty, we draw from the springs of life. As the Lord’s plantation, He develops and strengthens us for His mission. (Pastor)
Positioned at the Throne as sons, we receive His guidance and declare His mysteries in order to function in our tereo aligned to His will. Resisting anything that might prevent us from fulfilling it, we allow ourselves to be swept along in His flow so as to become channels of divine intention. (Teacher)
Consumed by His fire, we embrace His burden for sonship, in this crucial time when His sword separates soul and spirit, tradition and the life of the Spirit. In the secret place of His presence, we shed the garments of the past to receive His mantle to bear fruit, knowing that His promise will be fulfilled in His time, not by might, not by power, but by His Spirit. (Prophet)
As partners at the Throne of Grace, we have the assurance that He gives us what we need to move forward in faith toward our destiny. In an incredible outpouring of diversity of tongues, our praise and gratitude burst forth and His light gushes forth announcing to creation the coming of His reign and the opportunity to embrace the Father’s purpose! (Evangelist)
Aspiring to know Him in greater depths, to fulfill His purpose, we but I follow after… forgetting what is behind and bearing myself toward what is ahead, I run toward the goal, to win the prize of God’s heavenly calling in Christ Jesus. (Apostle)

August 2023 – Report
The Father showed me my two “identities” or “positionings”, side-by-side – the first one my identity in the Saints (i.e. before throne), the second one, in my tereo.
He showed me how the first overlaps the second but that they are not fully integrated. With the overlap being where the living water is starting to spontaneously break through (under the Spirit’s direction) (Jn7:38).
He showed me how the first “identity” or “positioning” must feed and nourish the second. The circumstances of the second, even though good and full of good things from the Lord, cannot be allowed to overwhelm the first, which can be tempting, especially in terms of personal relationships. My first place must always be before the throne, alert to do the will of the Father. Then my second place is my tereo, where the river flows down from my readiness before the throne, enabling me to do His will, bringing His power and living water to my tereo and those in it. If the first identity, my positioning before the throne, starts to take second place, even just in my emotions or affections, then the second identity – my positioning in my tereo becomes pointless, as I cannot function fully with the Father’s will.
I understood that He is giving me the chance to bear 100-fold fruit, to swim in the river (not just stay ankle-deep) and I cannot miss it because I got distracted. And I cannot afford to miss it for the sake of those in my tereo who He wants to touch. And mostly, I realise in what He has shown me, I don’t want to get distracted and miss it, because I love Him and don’t want to fail Him.

Vision of a wind that raises the dust from the ground, a column is formed, it is solid like a stake that connects heaven and earth. I have this verse at heart (Zechariah 4:6) “, … It is not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. “. My prayer calls the embers of God’s fire into my womb, I pray that His fire burns within me, that it consumes and strengthens my whole being. I call down the fire of sonship and a new measure of faith for sons, may our prayers call His light to shine on our generation like Elijah who called the rain (1 Kings 18: 41-44), At the end, a particular dance, a lot of power, my arms are like swords that slice, that carve something, fast but precise and sure movements.

I was inside a fortress, the big door opened and people entering were laying their blankets on a cart.

I received this verse, Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest
~ ~ ~
A great aspiration that signals an imperious desire to be completely consumed and to merge in Christ. Tears that express pain then vision of a crowd, it is Jacob who returns… He prostrates himself before Esau, he is Israel. I think of Rachel hiding her father’s idols, then of Yael and the stake she drove into Sisera’s temple… I hear: “Resurrection: it is I who roll away the stone, there is no nothing I can do. I love Jacob and I love Israel, I love you, I don’t take for granted (as a due) your sacrifices, I am not that God, know me as I am. I love you, your offering has a price in my eyes, in my heart. I will keep you, you are mine. Expect the prompting of the Spirit.

As soon as we started to pray, I felt that there was power, strength around us, in the room. Then I heard “My power is also accomplished in sweetness”, I saw myself walking on a path, with a lion on my right, one on my left and one behind me. Then I saw a sword splitting something in two. I thought of this verse: It separates joints and marrow, soul and spirit.
“Let out the strength that is in you, the seed of God, the Holy Spirit. Do not block it. You prevent it from working with power. You hold it prisoner. Let it lead you, let it act. Leave the door open, so he can come in and out”, I feel that the Holy Spirit is growing in me, I see him stretching out, taking up more space, pushing back the walls of what held him prisoner, which was like a placenta with thick walls. I feel a pain in my stomach, I think of childbirth, of liberation.

This time was a time of total worship in praise in divers tongues. Songs in tongues that exalted Him, adored Him, elevated Him, proclaiming His beauty, His power, His majesty, His reign above all things, the world and all that it contains. Intercession in divers tongues and songs of gratitude, of love towards Him in prostration at His Feet punctuated this time.
Revelation 4 was on my mind.
1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. 2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. 3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. 4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. 6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. 7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. 8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, LORD God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. 9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, 10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Philippians 3:7-14 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. 12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

I saw in each nation the saints in unity, and then three mountains, very large with very narrow paths.
The Lord was helping us to climb the paths. There were angels protecting us.
The saints are united by love, prayers and perseverance.

I perceived a strong activity in the spirit and particularly a great fruitfulness on several tereo in Brazil. The seven colors I perceived spoke to me of welcoming His light to function in a partnership very close to His heart, aligned with the Spirit’s intentions.

Saturday was a wonderful time in the Lord’s Presence. As we opened our prayer time by reading the directive, I was drawn to the word “Throne” and this word echoed in me this passage:
Hebrews 4:16 (KJV) Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace, to be helped in our needs.
Then I started looking up Strong’s codes and pneumatikos definitions of the words.
The exhortation made in this passage is really an indication of what we do as we intercede.
It could be paraphrased this way:
Whenever we approach the Throne in intercession (being rescued-boethia) let us be convinced that we obtain in due time (eukairos) the measure of discernment (mercy-eleos) that allows us to move forward in God (grace-charis).

I) I saw neural circuits in the brain being created and multiplied. Just as when we learn something new, new connections are created in the brain.
Father is giving us new connections that will broaden our understanding of things spiritual and also in the natural. It’s the revelation of existing things that we didn’t know before. There are going to be new revelations in science and secrets of creation that God is going to reveal to us now as the famous mysteries that are hidden and guarded for the end of time.
II) I saw a bomb doing a lot of damage, cutting a building in two. From the shaking produced, a breach opened up creating a separation.
This spoke of the shaking of certain old Christian structures and the opportunity to embrace the Father’s purpose.

Like these sudden whirlwinds of brutal gusts and showers in the natural north and west of France, numerous powerful vortices of red, light blue, indigo blue and gold are multiplying. Winds of Fire and Judgment of the works of darkness. Freeing imprisoned souls from deep darkness to Light through repentance. Spirit of Fire, Spirit of Holiness, HIs Light, Spirit of God’s Glory, blow again! The land of France is calling you. Several church sites were visited, shaking up many old things. Old things are passing away, all things are becoming new in Christ.
Thank you, Father, for this radical transformation, enabling the generals to rise up so that the army can rise up with strength and courage. Reform!

I had songs during our intercession.
I felt that we intercessors are trees in connection with one another; we draw living water from deep within.
I remembered that all of nature awaits the revelation of sons who have received authority.
