Potiphar’s House of Preparation

Some of you are in Potiphar’s House. You are working beneath your wages, beneath your education level, and beneath your level of experience. While you know you are so much better and more qualified for what you are doing, you are in a season of working for peanuts. You are under appreciated, misunderstood, taken advantage of, and even falsely accused at times but you know you that must do what you must do.

God sees it. He is not blind nor deaf. But just like Joseph, a bit of arrogance and pride had to be rooted out of you. Yes, you are worth more than you are being paid and yes, you are greater than what your present circumstances are dictating but you must still abide in the House of Potiphar until your set time to depart is at hand.

Until you receive your elevation and your deliverance from Potiphar, serve. Do what you are required and expected to do and do it wholeheartedly. Keep in mind that every thing you are doing now is in preparation for what you are about to do. (wax on-wax off) You are in boot camp and basic training for the real thing so watch your attitude. Behave yourself while you are there because Potiphar’s House is preparing you for the Palace.


Still Alive

He is still alive!! That is the report that was brought back to Jacob about Joseph. After all they had done to keep him away from his father. After all they had done to kill his dream. After all the lies they told to break his father’s heart. And after all those years of believing a lie they were astonished to find out that Joseph was still alive.

I don’t know about you but I can certainly identify with Joseph. Been lied on, cheated, talked about, and mistreated. ‘Bused, scorn, talked about as sure as I was born. I was up … down and almost to the ground but I am STILL ALIVE!

There were some who left you in the ditch to suffocate. Didn’t give you any water, any food, a helping hand, or a towel to wipe your bloody face but you are STILL ALIVE. The devil doesn’t have a death that can kill the vision God placed inside of you as long as you are willing to FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE. God’s got a RESCUE SQUAD to come for the ones left for dead and He has a surprise coming for the ones who joined hands together in destroying you. They joined against you but God wasn’t having it so the very ones who dogged you out have to come now and BOW (wow).. Catch that…

Shout that you are STILL ALIVE!!!


God’s Fire Purifies

Did not the prophet say, I am a man of unclean lips? Did He not ask Me to put hot coals on his lips? He cried out to Me in his uncleanness and asked Me to burn out all that was not of Me. I am holy and when man is in My presence My holiness will make him feel unclean. Any little thing however small will be revealed in the presence of God. I am  pure and I am holy. Desire purity, desire holiness without it no man will see the Lord. Come ever closer to the fire and allow Me to burn up the dross. My fire will not hurt you but it will heal you. It will turn your life around. Allow Me to burn out all that is not of Me and your will have joy untold. Come child of mine, come closer to Me. Drink from the cup that I drank from. In that cup there is mercy. In that cup is life. The cup brings holiness as death to self comes to you. Be willing to die to all that you are or ever will be. Let My death on Calvary remind you daily the price I paid to set men free. Come now and come quickly. Come hither to Me. I know your are lonely but look and see Me. I shall comfort you in all your loneliness. I will take you and love you. Set your heart to follow Jesus and do not look back but look to Me.  Give Me your whole heart and tenderly I will make it holy and pure and one with Me.

The Power in a Prophet’s Prayer

In the days of Elijah the prophet, during the reign of Ahab and Jezebel (I Kings 16-19), there was a severe drought that came upon the land. This came as the result of the slaughtering of God’s prophets by Jezebel and the corrupt government under the ruler-ship of Ahab. King Ahab was actually not in control but under the sway of his wife, Jezebel. Ahab and Jezebel had committed unlawful acts forbidden by God. During this time, the economy almost collapsed, but according to the book of Kings, we see that there was a level of supernatural provision; Elijah was fed by ravens. Consider that for a moment.  Most people don’t realize that a raven is a nasty bird that barely takes care of her young. Very few ravens survive because of this and if they do, they are mean, nasty birds. To be fed by a raven would be similar to being encouraged by Satan; almost an impossibility. Yet during the economic crisis, the Prophets were protected and fed with meat and water… by a raven! For them and for us today, the least likely source can become the means of provision. Ultimately, Elijah was to go to a mountain and face the forces that remained the influencing power in Israel – the politicians of Baal. These religious politicians, and the system controlling Israel, collapsed as an execution took place, and suddenly there was no ‘voice’ from these false influencers. As a result of this, the Heavens opened up and God poured an abundance of rain onto Israel. Acceleration began and suddenly the Nation recovered from a 3.5-year drought. The truth is that it was only at the prophet’s word in prayer, that God opened the Heavens once again. James 5:16 says, “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”  – (c) Ken Clement


The Blessedness of First Fruit Offerings

 Plant Your First Fruit Seed

Plant Your First Fruit Seed

To be in alignment with what God has for us, we must start the year off as instructed- by obeying God’s Holy Principle! God’s Word clearly instructs us…”When you come into the land which I give you and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest,” Leviticus 23:10. It is to be set apart as holy unto God!

2014 is a powerful year of “Double Portion.” The number “7” means “Perfection.” The number “14” means “Double Perfection”…a Double Portion! Your First Fruits this year is the “Activation” of the double portion!

Isaiah 61:7, “Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.”

You must “hear” this powerful revelation given for you that will transform you in ways you could never imagine in 2014! You have a “promise to come” from the Lord for the New Year, one that includes a release of blessing for your well being, your spirit, your soul, your body, your marriage, your relationships, your finances… EVERYTHING! Because it is about putting First Things First! Putting God First!

First Fruits in Hebrew is “bikkurim” and literally means “promise to come.” And there is ONE who never breaks His promise – God! That is why the truth behind this “promise to come” in God’s Word is so powerful. Though long overlooked by many, this divine establishment of God’s order of things is actually the root that governs the rest. When you KEEP FIRST THINGS FIRST through faith and obedience, you turn God’s promise into provision… ABUNDANT PROVISION!

Because He wants to see you succeed, He has put a system into place based on the principle of “First Fruits.” The Bible references first fruits or first things or devoted things no less than 32 times.

“Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your increase” (Proverbs 3:9).

“When you come into the land which I gave you, and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest” (Leviticus 23:9-10)

God claims the first fruits of anything! It rightfully belongs to Him in His divine order. When we apply the Principle of First Fruits – First Things First – in our lives, we begin to see that all firsts should be given to the Lord: the first part of the day, the first day of the week (Sabbath), the first month of the year, and the first of our harvest – be it the wages for the first hour, the first day, the first week, or the month.

You can put God first in every area of your life by:
PRAYING. Give God your first thoughts in the morning. Talk with Him before you do anything else EVERY day. Pray without ceasing for your family, for financial recovery and blessings, for healing… for your needs. God will honor your faithfulness.
PLANNING. Where do you want to be 365 days from today? Getting from here to there requires a prayerful plan. Seek God’s clear directive for your life, then write it down. Keep it in the front of you on a daily basis. Let it get into your spirit. See it! Believe it! Live it!
MAKING AN OFFERING. When you give your first fruits offering, you are planting a seed for the remainder of the year. Everything you have is a gift from God… you have an option to keep it or to sow it for an even greater harvest. There is a greater portion that awaits you in honor of your first fruits offering!

When you offer God your first fruits and bring Him the fullness of the first, you establish the foundation that the “whole thing” – your entire life – will be holy and blessed!

I challenge you to put FIRST THINGS FIRST and HONOR GOD! Start activating the Word by offering God your FIRST FRUITS as a seed for your harvest in 2014. As you sacrifice your offering to Him, you set a precedent of what will come. You release a great promise of provision as a result of your obedience. Many people give a week’s salary, others a day’s, but everyone must give their very best offering! – Paula White


Arise in 2014

Life has its way of knocking you down and throwing you for some loops. The path of life is filled with ups and downs and highs and lows.  You may even had some dead situations like Lazarus’ in John 11:21-23, “Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.” Nobody said this way would be easy. Even Jesus said that in the world you will have tribulation.  But He also said, “Be of good cheer”. Cheer means happy and optimistic. “I have overcome”, and if He has overcome, then what does that make us? You are more than a conqueror.  John 16:33, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
I believe that God wants His people to take courage. No matter where you are or what you may be going through at this point in life,  I ‘m here to let you know that you will rise again. Some of you have had a long, hard journey in this Christian way. Things have not been as easy as you may have thought it would have been. Remember when you first were saved and you had an invincibility about you. “I love the Lord”, and “I will die for the Lord.” “I am going to preach. I am going to have a big ministry.”  Consider the words of Peter in John 13:36-37, “Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards. Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.” We were sometimes blinded by zeal.  But when you get past talking the talk and start walking the walk, you started asking yourself, ‘What going on?” What’s happening? Where did this come from? Satan knows the real. He knows who is pretending. Things began to change. And you then realize that religion can’t save you because when the heat gets turned on, only those who are caught up in relationship with God will stand. Religion sets you up high and allows you to fall hard but I am standing on a relationship with God in power and so should you.
I am here to tell you that you will rise above it all. Some of you have been let down by those who were close to you who said they had your best interest at heart But God says , you will rise above it all. How many of you have been rewarded evil for good and it seems like all of your labor is in vain? There is coming a day for you that God will lift up the heads of your enemies upon the gallows. Esther 7:10, “So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king’s wrath pacified.” You shall rise again. We’ve been up and down and going through for the Kingdom of God’s sake. We have been slain and crucified on every side but God wants you to know that you will rise above it all.
There is coming a tipping point where God is going to vindicate His people. God is declaring the storms over for some of you. He is encouraging some of you through the storm. For some, the famine is over. For some, the breakthrough is at the door along with your miracle and the healing that you’ve been waiting on. Some of you are about to experience a place in God that you have never known because He is drawing you. You are in a place of alignment. Ps. 102:13, “Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.”  The hunger is there and the time is right. Payday is coming after a-while. You are coming out of your evening and joy is coming in your morning.  It doesn’t matter where you are or what it looks like for you right now, don’t give up. Pick your head up. You are a king. You can’t keep a good man down. You shall rise again. In Jesus name, stand up.
I declare and decree that this people shall rise up and take their places as kings and priests. These shall rise and not fall. They shall rise and prosper. They shall rise in victory. They shall rise in favor. They shall rise to any and every challenge that this world or their enemies shall present them and they shall overcome. They shall rise in business, in ministry, as successful parents, and successful spouses. They shall rise. I say to you, “Arise.”

2014: The Year of Great Exploits

As we stand at a the dawn of a new year it is important to hear what the Lord is saying to us for this upcoming season. There are many prophetic voices and each prophet hears in part what they are assigned to release in the earth. How we hear and interact with the movings of God will align us for what could be potentially the best year of your life. 

Daniel 11: 32 But the people that do know their God, shall be strong and do great exploits.
This is the year where you are going to move past mediocrity and experience the favor of God in your life as never before. Your life will move above and beyond all previous limitations, restraints, barriers, and you will experience the increase of the DOUBLE MEASURE. It is your season to accomplish, achieve, and acquire DOUBLE.

 “14” in Scripture
The number 14 is a multiple of 7 meaning perfection, which now causes 14 to take on particular importance being double that number, It implies a double measure of spiritual perfection.
The number 14 represents deliverance or salvation and is used twenty-two times in the Bible.
The Passover was celebrated on the “14th” day of the first month. ( Ex. 12:6)
Jacob worked 14 years for Laban in order to marry Rachel.
In the book of Proverbs the expression ” the fear of the Lord” occurs 14 times. 
There are 14 Epistles written by Paul 
The Apostle James was killed 14 years after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. 
On the 14th day of the first month in 30 A.D. Jesus Christ, God manifested in the flesh, the only begotten Son of God the Father, and the Lamb of God to take away the sin of the world, was crucified as the perfect sacrifice to save mankind from sin.
There are 14 generations from Abraham to David
There are 14 generations from David until the captivity in Babylon
There are 14 generations from Babylon until Christ was born 
There are 3 sets of 14 and YOU are the next generation being written that the creation is waiting for YOU to manifest your personal POWER PURPOSE AND AUTHORITY!
 Expect Great Things, 
Prophet Pringle


God’s Word for 2014 – The Pillars of the Church

My child, see that I am here before you with every treasure of my house and that I am not limited. For human minds are limited and think about the things that are not possible, but I think about things that are possible.
If a heart is hard, then I soften it. Is it so hard to imagine then, that I could change the heart of my Bride? For this is indeed the plan that I have for my Church, to soften her hard heart and to turn her to me once again. To call my Bride to the wedding chambers so that she can be healed and prepared for the era that is about to come upon her, says the Lord.
What the Future Holds
For a new era is fast coming and there is much that I must yet do to prepare her. There will be persecutions and resurrections. There will be pressures and she will be forced to make a choice of who she will follow. She will need to decide if she will follow the world or if she will follow me. So she must be prepared. For a darkness is about to cover the earth and the people, but do not be discouraged when this darkness comes.
For as deep as the darkness comes, the greater my light will be in that darkness. So prepare! Prepare my Bride for the darkness to come. Not so that she can be discouraged, but so that she can shine. For when the world loses hope and my hand blocks out the sun, then my Church will shine and many will be drawn to her rising.
This is why her heart must be turned towards me. For this is the secret of her light! It is not based on her righteousness or on the things she can do for me, but her brightness is based on her love for me. For my love is what will cleanse my Bride. It is my love that will cause her to shine.
It is my love that will make her without spot and wrinkle. Then when she shines in this purity, there is no work of darkness that will overcome her. There is no demon in hell that can entangle her. For she will walk in the greatest power than she has ever known.
So this is not a time to be weary or afraid, but a time to embrace the future. For the darkness has but one purpose, to make the light so much brighter. It is so that my very glory can be seen. For if man already thinks he has light, how will he notice my glory?
And so do not be discouraged when you hear about wars and rumors of wars. Do not be discouraged when you see disasters and things that are coming against the world. Do not be discouraged when you see Pharaoh taking hold of the world system and bending it to his power. Do not be discouraged when governments flee from me and make choices based on the flesh and inspirations instituted by satan himself.
For these are all good signs of things to come. These are all signs that a great light is about to rise among the nations. This is a sign that my Bride is about to be seen as never before.
So see then how I am separating my Bride unto myself. See then how I am calling her to be apart and not to be a part of the systems of this world. See how I am causing her to rule and reign even in difficult circumstances. For as I separate her to myself, she will shine! So my children, rejoice if the world stands against you, for you shall indeed rule the world that opposes you!
Rejoice if the changes are against you, for this is but an open door to rise up higher than ever before. For I have called my Church to be noticed, and noticed she shall be. Just like you look at nature and see that spring is coming because of all the blossoms that begin to appear, also see these things as buds of potential. See them as a sign of my Bride rising up in a power and authority that she has never known before.
For I am not calling her to suffer and to be trodden underfoot, but I am calling her to rise up and to stand upon the mountaintop for all to see. When you allow this picture into your heart, you see the work that lies ahead of you.
For my Bride needs to be both armed and cleansed. She needs to have her hard heart melted before me and to fall in love with me afresh.
The Role of the Prophets
This is why I have called my prophets from every part of the world. There are many of them, for there is a big message for my Church. Some have been led astray by the lies of the enemy and they have allowed their hearts to go dark as they have seen the darkness in this world, but I have not called my prophets to preach darkness, but to bring life!
I have called my prophets to show my Church the pathway to my heart. I have called them to prepare the ground for me so that my people might fall in love with me once again. I yearn for my Bride to come to me with joy and gladness.
False Prophets Exposed
Yet some of my prophets have lost their way and instead of my Bride coming to me with joy, she cowers from me, afraid of the beating she thinks she will receive from me. I yearn to honor my Bride and to heal her. I yearn to cradle her in my arms and to tell her of my great love. In these seasons ahead, I will expose these false prophets that are stealing the heart of my Bride from me.
I will expose their darkness and the roads that have caused them to go astray. I will shine a light on those that have led my little children down a wrong road so that they can be seen by all. For it is better that they have a millstone put around their necks, than they hide my Bride from me. For I am a jealous God and I yearn for my Bride. So I will expose the prophets that are preaching their own doctrine instead of mine.
Then I will raise up prophets who have received my word in their hearts and a fire in their bellies. I will raise up those who hunger to nurture, dress and heal my Bride. I will give them a place where there was no place before. For these hidden prophets have been stuck in a rock, but I will open the way for them now and soon you will see a new breed coming forth. You will hear a new prophetic message and a great light will shine and the weights that have caused my people to stumble will quickly fall away.
The Role of the Apostles
Then as my Bride begins to yearn for me once again, the pattern that my apostles have laid will come into play. For I have many hidden apostles who have been fast at work laying a new foundation for my Church. Unnamed and unknown they have been the Joshua’s of time past who did not have a past and wondered about their future.
They have worked in silence and wondered when their time would come. They were as Moses who built their tabernacle in the wilderness, not realizing that the splendor of Solomon’s temple was their true reward. For they labored long with people and they have built in silence.
They have applied the piece of the foundation that they have received from me and theirs has been a hard and quiet labor that has not been rewarded by man. However, as the heart of my Bride begins to turn to me and the scales drop from her eyes, she will see these apostles and be drawn to them.
The Apostolic Foundations
The foundation that was laid in secret will suddenly become seen by all and what was made out of wood will suddenly be covered with gold – a picture of my glory. For these apostles have labored and wondered if they missed me. They saw the wood with which they built and wondered when something “more” would come.
However, my gold is coming soon! My glory and anointing is coming soon and it will come in perfect time for my Church to worship me in spirit and in truth.
So motivate my apostles. Give them hope to keep building, for I see the things that have taken place in secret. I have seen the travail and the price they paid to do their work. Now is not the time to allow yourself to become faint, but to work harder and stand up bolder than ever before.
The Part A.M.I. is to Play in this Future
For this is your part in this plan my child. This is the part that A.M.I. will play in the plan that I have laid out in my Church. Not only shall you continue to gather and raise up my prophets, but you will stand as a motivator and a foreman for the apostles that are building in secret.
For while they build, they need someone that will stand at their back and protect them as they build. For just as Nehemiah had some building and some standing guard, so also have I called you to both build and to stand guard over the work that I am implementing in my Church.
For you shall continue to build the pattern that I have given to you and then you will stand guard for others so that they can complete what I have given them also. This is why I have led you so strongly to train my apostles and to arm them. For they have the fire and they know what I am wanting them to do, but they lack the armor and the tools to complete the task that is ahead.
So gird up your loins and run my child, for this is a season to equip my apostles. Then as you equip them, they will in turn equip and establish the rest of my Church. As you press forward in this vision and as you raise each one up to stand on their own, you will raise pillars in my Church on which I will place my roof of glory and protection.
The Pillars of the Church
For only when each pillar is in place, can I complete the building. The capstone of this work will be a mighty fire that will consume the wicked and glorify my name. Each apostle is a mighty pillar in my Church and a mighty warrior that has been called to change the face of my Church
As each one is put in place, my building will become secure. The picture will not be finished though until the last one has been set in place. Time is short, which is why the pressure has been upon you and my other apostles to finish their work! For my glory must come! My anointing must be manifest in my people universally, but it depends on my apostles being in place.
For when the final apostle has been put in place, I will release on this world a glory and a power that you have never seen. Just as the glory came down to dedicate the temple of Solomon, so also will my glory come down again in a measure that you have never seen and this glory will flow down from the apostles to the rest of my Church.
No longer will leadership be a one man show, but a force of apostles that the enemy cannot undo. Is this not how the early church took so much ground? It was the unity amongst the apostles, that created an infrastructure for growth to take place.
So watch as I continue to break down walls and bring people together. Watch then as I connect people that would never connect and as I raise up my mighty pillars to take their place. Fulfill your own purpose in this and as each apostle fulfills their purpose, you will see my hand move in this world.
For this anointing will not be limited to my Church, but it will overflow the boundaries of the Church walls to enter the world just as Ezekiel saw it happen. Just as the waters of healing entered the Dead Sea and brought life, so also will I reach in and bring new life to this world through my Church!
Remember my children, when the night seems dark and the world seems the most lost, is when my light will shine the brightest. Prepare your hearts and lives for the glory that I have planned for my Bride. Soften your heart before me. Come to me and embrace me. Then pick up the weapons of warfare that I have given to you and win this world for me, says the Lord. Amen – Apostle Collette Toach
