Prophetic Word from Prophet Cheryl Ballard
August 2015

This is a healthy house.

Jesus is stepping into YOU with a greater authority, power and anointing…let heaven come, through you.

We are in a time of an Eliakiam shift (his name means God arising, and God awakening)     
Elakiam had a unique mantle – the heart of a shepherd with a mantle of mentoring with an awakening for transformation – building sons, sons coming up because of the shepherding heart

Isaiah 22:20-22           
20 And in that day I will call My servant, Eliakim son of Hilkiah. 21 And I will clothe him with your robe and will bind your girdle on him and will commit your authority to his hand; he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. 22 And the key of the house of David I will lay upon his shoulder; he shall open and no one shall shut, he shall shut and no one shall open. 23 And I will fasten him like a peg or nail in a firm place; and he will become a throne of honor and glory to his father's house. 24 And they will hang on him the honor and the whole weight of [responsibility for] his father's house: the offspring and issue [of the family, high and low], every small vessel, from the cups even to all the flasks and big bulging bottles.

The key has authority we are being given:             
1. Governmental prayer/land/territory shifts and confronts systems of idolatry            
2. Restoration of worship       
3. Causes power based shifts

He said, you are to begin to look for God’s provision in dynamic and astounding ways.

You are no longer held in the place of warring with the enemy in a constant battle, but will now walk in an authority that will eradicate the giants in the land, personal and territorial

Get ready for confrontation – shifting of the government power in the land an appropriating of Christs victory and authority individually and collectively is the power you walk in 

An overcoming mantle is coming upon you – the day of suddenly being upon you.

He is literally changing the robes of authority from those who have reigned in wickedness to those who will reign in righteousness. Be on the right side of those robes

The Lord says He is manifold in purpose – he is speaking to us authority in us and in the land. Sending us out to conquer those giants.  It is a Kairos moment for overtaking your enemy. What is it that has plagued you? Plagued your family, region, land? It is a moment when we can wage war and have victory in new realms

Joshua 1 is the word for the house – crossing over into a place of inheritance destiny and covenantal promises. We are crossing over to fight.

You are in a time of cross over; a time of victory His possession and His inheritance. The Lord says you are standing on the front lines of spiritual warfare. You are armed with the spirit of truth. You are awakening to a third day anointing to possess the inheritance of God in your lives and in which God will do wonders among you. This is the time to receive the promises given to us and carry the legacy of truth to the generations that will follow. You are stepping into a new place and stepping into a new grace. Do not think that the enemies of God will not try to stop you, for they will. But I have assigned victory to you. And the Captain of the Host to go before you if you will humble yourself before your King. If God be for you, who can be against you? You are in a Kairos moment to take down the giants in your lives and the giant in this land. The Captain of the Host will rise within you to annihilate that which wars against you and against His kingdom.

This is a Kairos moment of increase. You have been given the keys, the keys to unlock transformation, resource and restoration of relationship to this land. You have been given the authority to carry the ark of His Presence. And carry it you shall. There will be an increase in overcoming power, in finance, in revelation and glory. This is a day of beginning again. The past will remain in the past, but the present will rise before you with new clarity of cause. He says you are entering in to a day of greater glory. You are entering in to the doxa of God, the glory that Christ carried. Stepping into a new place of His authority. The kind of glory that commands the attention of those that are about you. The kind of glory that Christ carried; the kind of glory that carries Christ presence, not just His anointing but His nature. The ark of His Presence. Not just the power of Pentecost but the kind of glory that confronts the systems of men with truth; the kind of glory that brings change. The kind of glory that carries His nature; and His nature and His presence will release signs wonders and miracles

This is the kind of glory that release the miracle working power of God. (This is no small thing) dumas power the can do power of God. The kind of power that effectually expands the kingdom in great measure and greater momentum that we have seen in days past.

A clear definition is coming into your lives and into the lives of leadership on their levels of authority and along with that, riding tandem, is the tangible presence and favor of God. He says this will be given unto you as you humble yourself before His throne and rise to His will. We are in a Kairos moment of governmental order rising. The heart of a Shepherd within those who are carrying a mentoring and an awakening transformation. He says you have been called, you have clothed and you have been set in a seat of authority. The army of the Lord is rising within its structure and the ranks and the battalions are forming in this land. He says you have been given the keys to unlock the treasury of God. There is increase upon you and the tent of His presence must be enlarged in you. In your house and in this land. He is enlarging he is increasing.

Greater is He that in you than he that is in this earth. Greater works shall I do than that you have seen in days gone by. Mighty warriors, dressed for battle, holy is your Lord. He is your Commander in Chief. He will lead you to victory as you step out and step in to that place of His provision.

He is going to cause many of you to be expanded in influence. That where you have been ignored or overlooked or almost veiled in the seasons gone by that He is going to reveal His heart through you to others. There is going to be an increase of influence in you. You are going to begin to walk in a new authority even this day

I see a natural increase in the house, people increase, the house getting bigger, more room
the mentoring mantle that is on the house will become stellar; it is to literally become a mentoring platform here that God is going to s says that He is going to cause this to be established and it’s going to have great effect on the generations. He says that this will be a house of legacy and this is a house of legacy that will be passed down to the generations. There is a generational anointing on this house, but they won’t just be raised in the kingdom to know the king, but they will be raised in the kingdom to follow hard after His paths and transform nations from within that seat of authority before the king.

Priority vs. Obsession

“Mary picked up an alabaster jar filled with nearly a liter of extremely rare and costly perfume—the purest extract of nard, and she anointed Jesus’ feet. Then she wiped them dry with her long hair. And the fragrance of the costly oil filled the house.“ - John 12:3 TPT

I have to first be honest….this thought did not originate with me. It began when I was listening to a teaching from Damon Thompson. And honestly, it just simply messed me up. I’ve been meditating on it for days.

Read the above verse again. As you probably recall Judas, the one who eventually would betray Jesus, did not take too kindly to this extravagant display of worship. His response is found in verse 5, "What a waste! We could have sold this perfume for a fortune and given the money to the poor!”

As critical and pious as we all like to be, if we were honest, we would have probably felt the exact same way as Judas. Especially if you were one who was poor. Think about it…..if you had a huge need and you saw what could satisfy your need being poured out in front of you, would you be quick to question, like Judas, this over the top devotion of Mary?

The only way to be sure is to answer this question, what is the most valuable thing in the room? If you answered the alabaster box of oil you would be incorrect. You see, Jesus is the most valuable thing in the room. And Mary was the only one who understood that. Everyone else put the most value on the oil, and in doing so, revealed a deep truth within their own hearts. Jesus was not the most valuable to them. He was a priority to them, but He was not their obsession.

Priority is defined as something that is more important than other things and that needs to be done or dealt with first. To obsess is to be the only person or thing that someone thinks or talks about; to excessively preoccupy the mind with.

Mary thought more of Jesus than she did the oil. Everyone else considered the oil first, and in doing so thought it wasteful to pour it out. It’s easy to be extravagant when you see and know Jesus to be more valuable than anything else you may have.

I realized that somehow, slowly, I began to think and act like a betrayer. I was comparing Jesus’ worth to things around me; arguing with myself about what He deserved and whether or not I would give it. The heart of Mary within me had been numbed by pain, disappointment, rejection, and unbelief.

What about you? Have you been walking with Jesus for so long that He has slowly become your priority and is no longer your obsession?
