Greetings, Faithful Saints!
Characterized as the remnant walking and serving with Jesus to teach the nations how to partner with the right hand of God in fulfilling divine purpose, our voices are not heralded in the streets; rather, we serve in our intercessory calling and as jealous pillars in the Temple of God, for this is our functional identity as saints. [Teacher]
Lifted up and surrounded by His grace, in strength and unity we will transition into the year of Truth and Sonship, fulfilling that which He has purposed for us and walk with Him in amazing victory. Discouragement will not overtake us, neither will defeat enter in, but we will be sober and vigilant, resisting the enemy, remaining steadfast in the faith. [Pastor]
Humbling ourselves before the Lord, we worship and bow down and kneel before the Lord our maker. May He heighten our ability to discern between the towb and the ra as He imparts to us a new level of truth, making us ready for deeper places and seasons in Him. He has ordained the seasons, and we will flow in the outpouring and the rain of His Spirit through all. [Evangelist]
The heathen rage, and the Lord is raised up out of His holy habitation. Let the mighty men awaken to go forth with the Lord as mighty men of war, speaking and teaching the Word of God faithfully, speaking the purpose of the Father for mankind and the earth as He expands His Word for His people. [Prophet]
The Lord is our refuge and fortress; we will draw near to God, for our trust is in Him. May the peace of God rule in our hearts as we go forth to do His bidding. [Apostle]
O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.

First Saturday Prayer Insights Report
The Spirit gave me a passage of scripture from Isaiah:
Isaiah 42:1-4 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. 2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. 3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. 4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.
God gives a rhema for the Saints in such a crucial hour. We are called to the world to teach the nations how to partner with the right hand of God in fulfilling divine purpose. We must not fail in our intercessory calling as saints, while remembering that we must serve as jealous pillars in the Temple of God. In this, we must not allow discouragement to overtake any of us. Our voice is not heralded in the streets, as our mission is to be characterized as the remnant. This is the servant of the Lord, and Matthew described Jesus as the fulfillment of this passage. Truly those who would be Christ-like, walking and serving with Jesus, will adhere to this functional identity.

It is the Lord our God who gives the rain, and the promise of His former and latter rain is upon us. He has ordained the seasons, and we will flow in the outpouring and the rain of His Spirit through all.

As everyone knows by now, war broke out in Israel early this morning, just as Sukkoth ended. Israel is always a sign for the nations. As I began praying and opened to my devotional scripture, it was Zechariah, and I had this strong sense that God is about to do something historical in the earth. I came to the sanctuary and began praying and as I stopped at the Chiros gate, I heard the Spirit calling out, awaken the mighty men, awaken the men of war, raise your battle shields, because the Lord is going forth to war.
For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her. 6 ¶ Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the LORD: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith the LORD. 7 Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. 8 ¶ For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. 9 For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me. 10 ¶ Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD. 11 And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee. 12 And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again. 13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation.

Throughout the far reaches of the Saints Network and beyond, we must endeavor to always love the praise of God more than the praise of men. Jesus came to save the world and to follow the commandment from God the Father to say what He would have Him speak. Let that truth resonate within us, to speak the eternal words of life from our holy God clearly and distinctly. Many people are abiding in darkness and by the power of the Spirit given to us we speak and teach the Word of God faithfully. Jesus did not speak of Himself but always the purpose of the Father for mankind and the earth.
2 Corinthians 4:1-2 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; 2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

I felt an influx of grace into my being and it lifted me up. Suddenly my eyes began to see a path before me opened up. It was plush and vibrant, but narrow. I knew the saints were on this path together. The Father is ushering us into the new in strength and unity and providing grace for our transition into the year of Truth and Sonship.

In prayer this morning, the Spirit was speaking so strongly to me about our purpose in the Father. We are surrounded by grace, purpose driven, and blessed beyond measure. As Sons we must walk in that. We must stay focused and not allow defeat to enter in, we are at the brink of amazing victory.

Saw fresh dough being stretched and folded between the hands of an intercessor. Like in a clockwise motion but in front of them with their hands moving away from the body and back again. Reminded me almost of a “stretching candy” or “pulling noodle” type movement. Heard God say He is expanding His Word for His people, as I was in a position of proskuneo on the nations wall. Thinking about how it could be turned into many loaves thus effectively being multiplied. Interesting to note that the intercessor had to move their hands, they had to do the work.
Thinking this is apropos for the upcoming ministry trips, but also, in our personal day to day.

As I woke this morning, I felt a distinct pulling on my spirit. I felt the enemy trying to stir up my thoughts and remembrances. But at the same time, I felt the prayers of the saints from all over the world. I felt an actual “uplift” of my heart and mind. I heard the Lord say, “where 2 or more are gathered in the name of my son “Jesus the Christ.” NO weapon formed against us (my family or the saints will prosper).
I actually felt a new level of towb truth being imparted to all of us.
The Lord said to resist the devil in His name and he will flee from us.
As I continued to seek Him, I was reminded of the songs that the children sang in children’s church. I heard the song “I have joy, joy, joy down in my heart…” I was directed to read Is .40: 6-31:
Life up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created all things, That bringeth out their host by number: He calleth them all by names, by the greatness of His might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth. … 28 Hast thou not known? Has thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of His understanding. 29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them He increaseth understanding. … 31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

I heard Psalm 2:1 question asked and I thought of Isaiah 17:12-14.
Psalm 2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
Isaiah 17:12-14 Woe to the multitude of many people, [which] make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, [that] make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! 13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but [God] shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind. 14 And behold at eveningtide trouble; [and] before the morning he [is] not. This [is] the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.
I saw a bicycle made of wood and the big wooden wheels were overlapped by small wooden wheels on both front and rear. It was being pedaled by an invisible character, towards East. It looks like the bike was made before the industrial revolution.

I was led to come against the enemy knowing that he hates me.
1 Peter 5:8-11 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

I could see the saints humbling ourselves before the Lord. And because we did, our ability to discern the towb and ra was heightened. We could navigate clearly and be prepared for the deeper place/season we are being made ready for in Him.
Psalm 95:1-7 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.

Colossians 3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Intercession today in His mercy and Grace. I am in Isaiah 66. 12-14
- Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the Glory of the gentiles like a flowing stream. Then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides and be dandled upon her knees. 13.As one whom his mother comfortethe, so will I comfort you. and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
- And when ye see this your hearts shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb, and the hand of the Lord shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation towards his enemies.

October 2023 – Benin’s Report
During the intercession, I had the word “Refuge”, which in Hebrew means Machaceh: Refuge, shelter, against rain or storm, against danger, against lies and falsehood. Comes from: to seek refuge, to flee for protection, to put one’s trust in God, to hope in God.
I received another word: “The Heart of God”.
Psalm 73 :28 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
2 Samuel 22 :31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

In this month of fast and feasting, He leads us into the secret place of His presence where we make Him our refuge in the full confidence that He is our God, that we are His people and that His law is written on our hearts. (Pastor)
Having received during this time of prayer, the assurance of being fully established in His plan, we persevere in the study and understanding of spiritual principles in order to apply them and fight by choosing to love truth and peace! (Teacher)
Aligned to His ways for the restoration of His creation, it is through our intimate relationship as sons that He continually shapes us to refine us so that we are ready to embrace new depths of His mission in these times of new beginnings. (Prophet)
Having the privilege of being partners in His plan, we stand firm and resist the enemy’s attacks because the Lord has prepared the army of the saints to fight by pursuing Him in new and rejoicing things that will lead to new breakthroughs. (Evangelist)

October 2023 – Report
During this time of prayer, I saw a wheel and a wheel within the wheel, and then, as if behind this prayer vision, I saw a galaxy forming a flat disk that was turning, it seemed to me, counter-clockwise, but it was hard to be sure, because it was like looking at a car wheel that’s moving forward but feels like it’s turning backwards.
Of course, I had in mind the passage from Ezekiel:
Ezekiel 10 : 4 Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the LORD’s glory. 5 And the sound of the cherubims’ wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh. 6 And it came to pass, that when he had commanded the man clothed with linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels, from between the cherubims; then he went in, and stood beside the wheels. 7 And one cherub stretched forth his hand from between the cherubims unto the fire that was between the cherubims, and took thereof, and put it into the hands of him that was clothed with linen: who took it, and went out. 8 And there appeared in the cherubims the form of a man’s hand under their wings. 9 And when I looked, behold the four wheels by the cherubims, one wheel by one cherub, and another wheel by another cherub: and the appearance of the wheels was as the colour of a beryl stone. 10 And as for their appearances, they four had one likeness, as if a wheel had been in the midst of a wheel. 11 When they went, they went upon their four sides; they turned not as they went, but to the place whither the head looked they followed it; they turned not as they went.
I prayed in divers tongues about these visions.

I received Psalm 91 as well as many topics to revisit on my own: the Elkanah, Hannah, Peninnah triangle; the principle of His face; Zion the parched place; our seat in heavenly places.
I ended the prayer time with a sense of establishment in His plan like never before and I think we need to wrestle (rejoice in His plan) during this month of the rejoicing fast.
Psalms 91 (1-2) He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

The Lord led me to focus on Zechariah 8: 18 and 19.
And the word of the Lord of hosts came unto me, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts ; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts ; therefore love the truth and peace.
During the whole time of intercession it was like I understood in a new way, the reality of these verses and saw so clearly the path that we have been on, and the place where we the saints are now positioned.
It was a deeper revelation from the Lord and it is helping me to understand many of the things that I have experienced in the past weeks.
It has been a time of being very aware of spiritual warfare and the nature of the warfare, knowing how imperative it is to press into and pursue the Towb of the Lord, the Goodness of the Lord.
All this in the midst of a storm raging around trying to get one off track. This battle is very real. Yet in all this clinging onto Truth was the only real option and the only way forward.
This is not entirely surprising as we are approaching and entering into the year of Truth and Sonship.
The Lord is leading us forward into deeper breakthrough and towards a deep joyful gladness and cheerful feasts with and in Him.
Praise the Lord.

I saw an opening, and felt strongly that the Lord was opening a new path towards which my whole being was moving, with the thought that He was going to use our hands and mouths. Then I saw a sharp blade that represented moving forward with sharpness and precision into the new, all in joyful expectation, which required being ready and moving forward led by the Spirit.
