“The Lord also will roar from Zion” (Joel 3:16).

The Lord is Roaring and Executing

We have just entered the month of Av, one of the themes of which has to do with the Lord roaring from Zion. What that really means is He is executing or enforcing things. Judgments or decisions that have been made before are now being carried out. I feel there are three main areas to consider:

1. Barrenness Being Broken—Just after Pentecost, the Holy Spirit led many of us to pray in tongues for thirty minutes a day for three weeks—specifically to break barrenness. I felt the Lord give that strategy—whether it was for barrenness of ministry, barrenness in one’s personal life or business, or the inability to conceive a child. Thus, many did pray in tongues for thirty minutes a day for three weeks. (Many of you also informed me that you are continuing on and making this a lifestyle.) This is so incredible. Know that the Lord is not silent. He is roaring from Zion (the place of praise). Have great expectation that the Lord is executing the breaking of barrenness and is releasing life, and that you will move into a new level of fruitfulness.

2. Execution of Prior Promises—God had entered into covenant with Abraham and said that his descendants would serve another nation for 400 years, but that afterward He would judge that nation and Israel would come out with great possessions. This was fulfilled 420 years later when they came out of Egypt carrying unexpected financial wealth (see Exodus 12:12). When the time is right, God executes and carries out what He promised. I think many have received prior promises from the Lord. Now is the time, and God is beginning to execute those promises just like He did for Israel. Personally, I feel the Lord is releasing me into some new things that were spoken to me via prophecy in 1996.

3. Prophetic Act of Roaring—I think we should regularly expect the Holy Spirit to not just lead us in prophetic acts of rejoicing, but also in acts of roaring. Psalm 149 clearly tells us to rejoice. We read, “Praise the Lord! … Let Israel rejoice in their Maker” (1–2). When we do so, we are then part of executing or carrying out the Lord’s promised decision or judgment. The Psalmist continues, “To execute on them the written judgment—this honor have all His saints” (9).

The first time I was in a prophetic meeting, the worship leader told us to strike with an imaginary sword. I had little understanding of this at the time, but obeyed and mimed the act of striking with a sword. I soon forgot about having done so. However, a week later I saw a miracle happen before my very eyes. I said, “Lord, thank you. But why? How did this miracle happen?” He replied clearly that when I took part in the prophetic act of “striking with the sword” is when He released/executed that victory. My taking part in that prophetic act brought to me the victory I needed.

So remember, the Lord is roaring from Zion. Roar with Him. Watch earlier promises begin to be executed and carried out.

Yarn Alive—Your Prayers are Amazing!

That God’s favor is upon Yarn Alive is so clear to see. It seems the Lord is always providing miracles. Thank you for praying; just this week Yarn Alive received a huge financial blessing.

GYM—Prophesying to the Graduates

It was my privilege to prophesy to this year’s graduating class of GYM (Fall 2019–Summer 2020), some of whom I had never met before. Most of them are members of Catch the Fire Japan churches. While prophesying to them, I had such a strong sense of solid foundations in their lives. Also I knew their churches would prosper and flourish. But just as strongly for almost each one, I felt the Lord releasing a promotion of favor and faith.

If you haven’t done so already, please consider signing up for this year’s GYM, which begins on September 17.

GYM is a forty-week course that Mike and Rachel designed and run. The Lord has used it to establish proper foundations in many believers’ lives. For more information, please visit

Thanks so much for praying!
