Keep Your Ear to the Ground

Well, we’ve arrived in June! And just in time for a little encouragement for our regional family. We’ve got a few words below for you to read through and be encouraged!

There is an underground current

Keep your ear to the ground. Position yourself to listen to what is happening under the ground. There is moving and shaking and shifting that is happening and has yet to be seen above ground. But you have learned to listen to what is happening underground. You’ve learned to look for the current flowing underground. This current is always filled with life and hope. You can draw life and truth from this underground current, no matter what you see above ground in the natural.

See. Yes, look. Look at what has come to the surface. And then bend low and keep your ear to the ground. Listen for the underground current. It always tells you the truth. It always speaks a better word.

Don’t respond to what you see. Go lower, bend your ear to the ground and declare what you hear in the current running under this land. 

It takes humility to look and then bow low to listen. Look and then be quick to put your ear to the ground and listen. Stay in position.

God is moving underground! Even though we can’t always perceive what that is going to look like, we can listen and let His current confirm, affirm and hold us in truth. 

In April, a word was released from Nellie O’Hara who serves with Patricia King Ministries and lives in Ottawa. It speaks to what the Lord has shown us about what the Lord is doing behind the scenes. Let’s keep our ears to the ground in this season! 

Before you read on, we also wanted to extend an invitation you to join us at Centralia Faith Tabernacle for The Ascent on July 7 at 7pm. We will be leaning into the current that is running under this nation, pulling up the truth and releasing it. If you are able to make it, join us. It’s a time of refreshing, refocusing and rejoicing! 

"A Word for Canada: 'Crank Up the Oil Rigs!'"

"He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock, in the land which He swore to your forefathers to give you." (Deut. 7:13)

Recently, as I was driving, I heard the Lord speak over Canada: "Old structures are falling down. Old ways of doing things are not working anymore. The days of back-room meetings, the days of hoodwinking, those days are over. Those days are gone."

I hear the Lord saying, "Transparency ... transparency is the freedom that is coming to this land. Transparency in thought. Transparency in deed. Transparency. I see prosperity falling as the snow falls ... ever so gently. There is prosperity falling across this nation from coast to coast as old structures are being taken down by their very foundations.

I Give You This Nation

"I see a people rising. They are saying, 'It's enough, enough!' I see eyes being opened, I see ears being opened and yes, there is an awakening. Finally! Finally I have a people who are listening to My voice. Finally, I have a people who hear My thoughts and are willing to go forth – are willing to put their foot towards their future. Oh, you have all seen the tsunami coming. You have all seen the tidal wave coming, but there is a reckoning, a reckoning that has to do with justice for the founding fathers of this country. There is a reckoning that has to do with recovery and restoration and restitution for the destiny of this nation."

I hear the Lord saying, "I give you this nation, as a gift. It is My gift to you. It is My promise," says the Lord. "I continue to say, 'Do not fear, do not be shaken.' The turnaround of what man's agenda was is here."

Crank Up the Oil Rigs!

"Life was so good that I washed my feet in cream and had plenty of the finest oils." (Job 29:6 ERV)

I hear the Lord saying, "It's a go! Crank up those oil rigs, for there shall be a flourishing of oil that shall begin to lubricate the flatlands. My oil is landing in hard places that have been made dry and recalibrating the soil, birthing forth the dreams for this nations. For the intercessions of My people crying out have gone forth and they are causing the sea to part. The only dry land is that which you will cross over as you enter into the promises I have for this nation.

"My oil is landing to restore a nation. Not only a nation, but your dreams. Not only your dreams, but your desires. The oil is being cranked to restore your foothold and plant your feet firmly to a path that has been carved out for you. The oil is refreshing your bones and those dry places are coming alive.

"False idols are crumbling and your children are rising, for I have seeded within a generation a foundation that is building to take the structure of withholding off of your limited view.

"There is an inner oil rig inside of you, and hear Me this day: the oil is going to flow. The oil of My Spirit is going to flow and dismantle that which is not in alignment with My dream for you and for your destiny. My oil will flow, and My oil is going to burn. There will be burning ones who are relevant to walk in My ways and My love, and My love will burn through their veins. As My oil flows, the oil of this nation will flow and prosper.

"He made him ride on the high places of the earth, and he ate the produce of the field; and He made him suck honey from the rock, and oil from the flinty rock." (Deut. 32:13 NASB)

See My Oil Flood Your Spheres

"The oil will flow in government. The oil will flow in education. The oil will flow in media. The oil will flow in ministry. The oil will flow in every area. The oil will flow into the cranks as the oil rigs are being cranked up.

"There will be a seven-fold return on what has been stolen. I will redeem," says the Lord, "I will redeem the days. I will redeem the destruction. I will redeem the time. I will redeem the hurt and the agony.

"The days of great healing are coming upon this nation. Liberty and plumb lines of righteousness and the true freedom that comes with these are hovering as their holding pattern is being readied to land. Just as My hand swept across the United States, My hand will sweep across this nation."

"... And they will come and shout for joy on the height of Zion, and they will be radiant over the bounty of the Lord – over the grain and the new wine and the oil, and over the young of the flock and the herd; and their life will be like a watered garden, and they will never languish again." (Jer. 31:12)

"Then the LORD became jealous for His land and spared His people. And the Lord answered His people: 'Behold, I will send you grain, new wine, and oil, and by them you will be satisfied. I will never again make you a reproach among the nations.'" (Joel 2:18-19)

Preparing for Change | Elections

From May 3 - 8 we attended some gatherings where we joined with fellowships from across the nation of Canada to hear the heart of the Lord. We were empowered with strategies to continue to impact our community and nation and were called into action, especially in this time of change as the elections draw near. This series, Preparing for Change, is going to pull out some of the highlights to keep us moving forward together in the same direction. The church of Canada is very much awake and alive!

Getting involved

With the elections coming up, there are some really important pieces of information that we can grab onto both spiritually and practically to help steer the political ship of our nation. When we were at the national conference, Dave Kalamen and Brendan Witton led a session to prepare us. I’ve included some of the highlights below.

We have learned that whoever controls the definition of words controls the culture. For example, the definition of tolerance used to be that you can be you and I can be me and we don’t have to agree. Now, the definition has shifted to be that if you don’t agree with the other point of view, you are intolerant. Whoever controls the definition of words controls the culture.

It is important that we understand that church and state are not separate matters. This is an idea that we must reject moving forward as the Ekklesia. Not only is it the church’s mandate to win souls, but it is also to disciple and govern nations. It is also important to note that there are both spiritual AND practical ways that we can let our voice be heard. As intercessors, it’s easy to just think about the spiritual side – which we know is critical – but forget that there are also very practical ways to help.

Here are some practical ways that we can be involved in the upcoming elections on top of voting and praying.

  1. Get involved in the process by volunteering at voting stations.

  2. Support a local candidate whose party you believe in by canvassing for them. We heard a story of a God-fearing candidate from Windsor who lost by only 12 votes! Remember, we can make a difference. With God, it’s not just “whatever happens, happens” attitude. He wants us to partner with Him to bring Heaven to Earth both in the spirit and in the natural. Ask the Lord how He wants you to become involved.

  3. Become educated on some of the key issues. Know where each of the parties stand. Remember, it is the party’s platform that you are voting in, not the candidate.

  4. Build relationship with your local MP. Let them know you are praying for them and offer to help where needed.

Here are some great resources to stay connected to what’s happening regarding the elections.
