Focus - Apostolic Resounding - Word and Vision

APOSTOLIC RESOUNDING ~ Prophetic Word & Vision

With all of the prophetic words that are being released to end 2017 and begin 2018, no matter what, keep FOCUS. Many of the words are coming are right out of the mouth of God, however, your focus will determine the manifestation thereof. The enemy will attempt to whisper to us like he did Eve, will attempt to tempt us he did Jesus and even bite us like Paul was bitten but do not lose FOCUS!
Focus in the season is not about how you stay entrenched in one thing or another but how you apply the word of the Lord and leading of Holy Spirit. We have taught and prophesied “laser” focus and it has derailed people. Focus is about being about to stay on track regardless of natural or spiritual happenings. We cannot be distracted by the things of nothingness when we are processing to GREATNESS!
Holy Spirit is requiring our FOCUS because FOCUS produces double peace (shalom shalom) (Isaiah 26:3). When we keep our mind in and on God we will see greater than we have ever seen before. God is asking for us to keep the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16 and Philippians 2:5) which is more than a spiritual mind. We need to purpose in our hearts to keep our eye, intent and obedience focused on Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit does more than speak about the church and “church stuff”. It is time to hear His direction in all thing pertaining to our lives.
FOCUS also knows how to ask for help. Focus is never seeking to do anything alone but is willing to learn and apply winning strategies from others.
As an abundance of proper words are coming to your life and atmosphere, STAY FOCUSED. Focused that no bird will come and eat the seed of the word. Focused that the ground of your soul is toned to receive the word of the Lord. Focus will defeat the attacks of the enemy including the enemy within called self-destruction. Do not lose focus, heart or confidence through the process of manifestation. FOCUS!
Write goals, FOCUS. Research your industry, FOCUS. Get Books, take classes, FOCUS. Invest in your gift, talent, function, FOCUS. Take your eye off everyone else and get to work, FOCUS!
The VISION (December 30, 2017): Early this morning in the midst of an apostolic huddle, I had a very clear vision:
I saw People like cars on a freeway. As The traffic begins to slow down, the people (cars) begin to become impatient. I see what seems to be an exit. But this exit has no freeway signs to indicate it is an exit. This “exit” literally appeared out of nowhere. The people start taking this “false exit”.
At this point I see the cars on the freeway and those taking the exit because of their impatience. I then see that this false exit is a distraction. Once the people get off on this false exit, there are no road, no way back to the freeway and there is nothing that pertains to life. The people who took the exact are now trapped and unable to get back where they need to be. This exit has become a place of destruction and death.
Because of impatience people they lost FOCUS! In losing focus, the end was not good. DO NOT LOSE FOCUS!

Confidence? Pride?

Destroy the thought that your CONFIDENCE is pride! Confidence is the ability to recognize and utilize the gifts and talents properly. Pride is an aggressive and abrasive way of speaking of yourself. With pride, you may be good at what you do but you are forcing on people. With confidence, you just do what you do and allow others to see. #IAmConfident#PrideIsFreeToGoToHell

DO NOT SELF DESTRUCT!

DO NOT SELF DESTRUCT! Many of us have been on a path of self destruction. We have allowed addictions, fetishes and perversions to real our lives and be our "identities". It is time to face all of those "demons" and be free. India.Arie had a song out sometime ago, "I Am Not My Hair", while let's update that to, "I Am Not My Past". Our pasts are not our identities. Nothing in our past identifies our new selves. It is time to destroy the "self destruct" sequence and activate the LIVE sequence. #NoSelfDestruct #Momentum #Kairos

Deeper

Do you hear the call from Heaven into a deeper place? Deeper consecration? Deeper prayer? Deeper study? Do not ignore the call because “I don’t know how”, this is the time to lie down and kick to the side PRIDE. Many of us are missing the deep things of God because of fleshly pride that keeps us from asking questions. Anything that we learn to do was initially something we did not know or understand until we began to do it and ask questions. The deeper place that you hear the call to will not just manifest, you must engage it and walk in it.

Holy Spirit is purposely calling us beyond the realm of our logical and sensual wisdom. This spiritual place is unknown to our flesh and is calling us into a deeper level of trust and faith. Holy Spirit is requiring us to leave that which is comfortable for us, comfortable can become complacent. This deeper place is not a place you can reach in your flesh but ONLY in the SPIRIT. We have heard for years, some of us for decades, that God requires more of enough but we didn’t understand what that meant.

Holy Spirit is leading us into wider, deeper and higher understanding of Him and His Realm, which we call heaven. He is Knowledge and Wisdom personified and we must allow Him to lead us without carnal logic inserting itself. We have to rely on His communicating with our spirit and not trying to make our mind the focus of our obedience. We must allow Him to lead us where our faith is without LIMITS! Too often we limit our faith in Him by allowing logic to reason His instruction and leading.

This season we have to embrace the calling into the deeper.  This new place in the realm of the Spirit is your normal but does not yet seem normal to you. It is still unknown to you until you begin to encounter the depth, width and height of where you are. You cannot determine what is supposed to happen in this realm because you have never been here before. Holy Spirit wants to make you acquainted with Him and this realm even the more. He is calling you into a fresh place and only He knows what you are to expect, receive and encounter in this realm.

Do not wait on man to valid this new place in Him. Though corporately, we are going deeper, our individual deepening many will mislabel because it is not theirs. Man cannot, of his own accord, valid where you are in the realm of the Spirit. This realm has to be discerned by Spirit and not by material possession. As you walk in this deeper place, man will not understand you and some will speak against where you are, fret not continue walking and let Holy Spirit do the rest.

This deeper place will cause a hunger and thirst you may not used to. It will not cause a hunger and thirst in your flesh but in your spirit. You will want more word, to pray more, to worship more, you will be doing these things and not realize it because you are deeper than before. You are in a place of new wine but there is no residue of the old wine. You are coming into a place of no return, the door has been closed behind you and you can only walk forward with Him.


As Holy Spirit is calling you deeper, you have to allow Him deeper in you. Do not expect to be in a deeper place in Him and you have Him in a shallow place in your heart. There has to be an even exchange here. The more He gives the more you give. Do not miss this place by putting walls up to Holy Spirit. Your internal walls must come down, bring down Jericho in your soul and let Holy Spirit in. Once Holy Spirit is allowed in, you will begin to encounter freshness and newness in Him. The deeper place in Him is a maturing place, a growing place and He is the Lead, the Light and the Guide through it.

Competition: I Am A Competitor For Better

"Life is not a competition with other people but with yourself." This is not the first time I have thought this but for some reason today it stands out more. I am not living to be better than anyone other than the person I was yesterday. I cannot beat anyone being them but I can beat myself being me.

We live in a competitive nation. Always trying to out do some other nation or corporation. That becomes tiring and burdensome. We have to stop trying to keep up with the Jones' and be ourselves fully. Don't do it because it is trendy and fashionable, do it because YOU like it and believe in it. Don't try to blend and fit in, if you stick out like a sore thumb, EMBRACE IT and blaze new trails.


We are all UNIQUE and PECULIAR, we should never attempt to become ordinary and like everyone else. I want to be better than me not better than you. There is only ONE you, be the BEST you and live fully!

Becoming a BETTER me is enough COMPETITION for a lifetime......I am Javon Rahman Bertrand, competitor of BETTER!
