Yearly Word To The Church:
Yearly Word To The Church:
Word to the Church of 2019:
Hear O Church, what the Spirit will say to you! Hear and do not turn away. My goodness will continue to be primary in my Church. Without my goodness there cannot be mercy and grace, and without mercy and grace the Church will not prevail.
This is a season for the Church to yield totally and completely to the Holy Spirit. Yield, bow your head and bend your knee to Him. Holy Spirit is on assignment for Father God and will not be deterred. Christians may follow and turn into Him or turn away and continue to clench their fists before Him with resistance and rebellion. Holy Spirit has come in these latter days before the Great Day of the Lord comes to bring wisdom and discernment - true discernment - so those who are called by the name of Jesus Christ so that they will not falter and will not fall away. The Bride of Christ needs to
be infused with great power and wisdom, supernatural gifts and blessings and all these come from welcoming in the Holy Spirit. It is more than evangelism, it is power and might to protect Christ's Believers from subtle apostasy that has entered the Church and is sitting in the pews. Yielding to Holy Spirit means to give way to Him totally and completely, give up your own understandings and your own agendas, for this is a season of great outpourings of supernatural events, power and wonders. Those who do this will experience greater blessings and great outpourings of power in their lives. Yes, hard and difficult times are coming upon the earth and no nation, no race, and no nationalities will be untouched. And yet those of my people who yield to Holy Spirit will hear what the Spirit says and hear what He plans to do and become part this spiritual growth in me and will survive the times and seasons.Do not despise the Spirit. Do not hinder the move of the Holy Spirit. Embrace all of Holy Spirit, His fullness in baptism as in the Book Of Acts. Pastors and leaders of the Church, hear!! Open wide my church doors and welcome Him in. Do not be afraid! This fear is not from Me, it is from Satan, designed to limit you and keep the church powerless. Will you hear, will you yield, will you obey, will you instruct your people? Or will you stand in your own understanding with your jaw set and your fists clenched, denying this Power and having your lampstand removed?- Pastor Sandra Matheson 2.11.19
Prayer:Heavenly Father, forgive us as your Body for resisting the work of the Holy Spirit in these days. It seems your people have forgotten what Holy Spirit has been sent on earth for, what this season of time is all about - the cleansing of your Bride to meet her Bridegroom. Turn our hearts to His agenda that we might partner with Him and not oppose Him. We pray your protection over us as we do this. We pray for great power to come in, atomic spiritual power as on the Day of Pentecost. Remove those in leadership who are hindering Holy Spirit work and confusing your people. Give us great boldness to welcome in Holy Spirt to our churches and our lives. Amen
Word To The Church 2018
Goodness of God: 2018
20: holy, redemptive18: fruitful association (judgment by the Word of God)
20: holy; redemptive1: God; first in rank or order8: new beginning
Hear America, as the season of thanksgiving approaches, rise up with thanksgiving in your hearts and minds for the goodness of the Lord is at hand. This goodness will move across your land through the hands and hearts of my people, my Believers in Christ Jesus. No matter what befalls my Believers, they will lift up their hands and worship me for they know the weapons of warfare in praise and worship, and in thanksgiving. Not thanksgiving for what has befallen them, but thanksgiving for what I will do to bring them through their trials and bless them. Do you not remember my servant Joshua and how the walls of Jericho fell straight down because of the worship that went before the army, before the battle began. My people must learn the power of praise and worship; the power of a thankful heart instead of murmuring and complaining. What was the fruit of my people in the desert but wandering and dying before seeing the promise land? Put away the perversity of your mouths for these words are death to your spirit and your promises. You may not understand my ways but you don’t need to. You just need to know the wonder of my goodness towards you. Everything I do has my Believers, my people in mind for their benefit. God’s goodness is for your benefit. My goodness encompasses all things. There is no lack to my people who learn to praise and worship me, who learn to have a thankful heart in all things. For my goodness will create a way through all your issues, your pains, your disappointments, your fears. In your nation of America I will heal your land and your peoples, I will restore all that was lost and I will set righteousness in place again. I will raise up an army of people who will be bold to speak my truth in love and compassion but will not waiver in what righteousness is, what my goodness is. Look! Goodness is abounding once again. A line has been drawn against evil and it cannot be called good any longer. Be of good cheer. It is a season of God’s goodness.
- Pastor Sandra Matheson 11.20.17
Prayer: Heavenly Father, in the name of your son Jesus Christ we pray for our nation in the coming year of 2018. We pray for redemption in our land, that many will come to the saving grace of Christ. We pray forgiveness for the sins of our nations and for our leaders who lead without You. We pray for your mercy to restore our land to righteousness and to be able to live in peace with each other. We pray Lord, for Your goodness to overwhelm us and for us to see Your goodness as it permeates our lives and our nation once again. We ask for protection over our President and his household and his office. We pray that we may recognize You as the God of this nation once again as was established long ago by those who first founded her. Amen
Word to the Church 2017: Holy and Redemptive
20: holy, redemptive
17: spiritual order OR
20: holy, redemptive1: beginning (of)7: perfection
2017 shall be a year to initiate holy and redemptive spiritual order, out of immaturity and incompleteness (the beginning of perfection or personal purity). This shall not be just for the nations or the church but for each individual Believer in Christ. It is time for My Bride to step up into her completeness in Me. Spiritual order is needed; holy spiritual order. My Church seems to believe that she can do anything spiritual, join herself to any other god, and I will approve. This is not so. There is much to be restored that the enemy has trampled down and tried to destroy. My people have been distracted by life and by fear and have allowed too many evil and disgusting things to enter into them. Their belief system in Me has been polluted by entertaining other belief systems thinking they are of Me. This is wrong. I will not have My Gospel polluted and I will not share My Glory with another. Many of My people think that I am called by many names including Allah, and this is simply not true. I AM that I AM. I am Jehovah. I am Yahweh. I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. I am Yeshuah. I am Messiah.
This will be a year of revelation and the uncovering of lies and false teachers. Many of My Teachers are falling because of their own reasoning. Many are trying to interject false words and false teachings into My Church thinking all spiritual things are one with Me. I will reveal the lies and the hidden things and I will not tolerate these any longer. Now is the time and the season of reckoning, now is the time to repent and to get back to your first love. Now is the time to turn from tolerance to Truth and to obey. I am doing a “new” thing. I am looking for those who obey My Commands. I am looking for those who dare to stand up for Me and to stand up for My Truth. I am a God of great love and mercy, but I am also a God of accountability and judgment. Listen My people, the time and season is short. There is a reckoning coming. The sifting has begun. Do not be dismayed by what you see or hear for many will be exposed for what they truly believe and many will be removed by what they truly believe. Just because they have a “name” or a “position” or are on TV, does not make them My teachers or My prophets. Many have gone their own ways and are moving in their own understandings and think that I do not see – or that I agree with this “new” understanding. I do not. Many are calling on My name for profit, for greed, for avarice, for fame.I am seeking a people who love Me with all their hearts, their minds, and their souls. I am seeking a people who are seeking after Me. This will be a year for the individual Believer to stand for what they believe and to give Me honor and glory. Do not be dismayed or distressed by what you see or hear. Know that I am greater than all these things. Have I not told you that I have overcome the world and have enabled you to do the same through Me. I say, follow Me; keep your eyes upon Me. I will in turn bless them and keep them and grant them great favor. Amen- Pastor Sandra Matheson
To the Nations:
America: I am restoring and replanting. America will rise to be what I have called her to be. I have set a Jonathan for My Israel's David. I am restoring America to Israel and there will be a blessing for America in doing this. Have I not said that I will bless those that bless the seed of Abraham, the nation Israel? There is no need to fear. I am a good God and I look for those who will carry My goodness in them and radiate it outwards. I am restoring peace and prosperity to America but this will not be without stress. There will be those in opposition to what I have called to be and will try to bring havoc and confusion. I have heard the cries of My people in America and I have removed My hand of judgment for a time. America, rise up; remember your roots, remember your establishment and your beginnings. Look to your enemies: Russia, China, Iran, ISIS. Move with wisdom and caution, call on My name and I will show you the path to take. I am taking over your capitol, I am taking the cover off and uprooting and replanting. I am revealing and I am exposing. do not be dismayed. Be at peace America. I am with you as long as you call on My name.China: Woe to you China! I see the plans that you have made thinking that no one will know, thinking that you are conniving a secret plan. Your plan will be exposed and you deceit revealed. Despite your efforts China, I am rising up a multitude of Believers in Me in your nation. Thousands upon thousands are calling on My name and I am answering. Woe to the leaders of China! Woe to the plans that they have made. Russia: The bear roars. The bear makes advances to intimate and to rule over. I see you Russia. I understand what you are doing and how you want to overtake the Middle East; only when the time is right and not before. I will destroy you and your deceitful plans to take over and to become the power of all the nations. I am taking a harvest from you, I am revealing myself to your people - and even to your leaders. Watch, I am doing a new thing and you will not even perceive it! I am revealing you to the world.Iran: You will be uncovered and exposed. You smile and lie at the same time. You flirt and deceive with your eyes and with a shake of the hands you lead astray. You say, but America is vain, proud, and greedy; full of arrogance and debauchery - the great Satan. You say, we will destroy you America, not from without but from within. And yet I, the Lord God over all, say to you Iran, Have I not exposed you and stopped the plans that you have had? Have I not brought you down? Yet you persist and I will expose you and your deceitfulness. I am bringing many out of your land into My Kingdom. I am collecting a harvest to come and you are unable to stop the hand of Almighty God. I will do what I will do. America will rise and America will overcome you.ISIS: You are falling apart from within. I am pulling out people from the midst of you into My Kingdom. I am speaking to them in dreams and visions and they are moving from darkness to light. You will come to nothing and your blood thirsty tirade will end. I will bring your leaders down and bring them into confusion. I will reveal to America and to Israel your hiding places and your secret plans. You will not succeed. You will be destroyed. Woe to your leaders for their sins are great!- Pastor Sandra Matheson
Prayer: Heavenly Father cause the leaders of America and her allies to have great wisdom in the days to come. Reveal unto them the plans of the enemy and the ability to stand against them successfully. Please grant these leaders discernment, insight, and unity into what is good and right and what is dark and evil. Holy Spirit stir the people of God up in this nation to continue to pray for America and for the Church that we might truly be overcomers. Grant us boldness to say and do the right thing. Please bring healing and restoration to this nation once again, and help us all to understand that we are all Americans and that your plan for this nation includes all peoples. Amen
Word to the Church of 2016.
11.28.15 Storms, Choices, and Acceleration
There is great movement in heaven. There are Angelic assignments for this year - greatly increased and full of My power. These assignments are for each one of My children - if they choose to 'see' and choose to 'hear' what the Holy Spirit is saying to them. This is a year My Church must choose which voice to hear and which Shepherd to follow. I am not tolerating any false teachers, shepherds, or Prophets any longer. There will be no tolerance for feeding in a another 'shepherd's' pasture. I am Truth, and My Truth will set you free as you hear it and as you walk it out. This is a season of choices, storms, and accelerations for My Bride. This a serious season, for the enemy is rising up and means to attack My Church intensly. There will be storms; not only in the physical but also in the spirit realm, all across this earth. Have you not seen this? Have you not seen this in the attacks of evil in the nations of the earth? Have you not seen the storms raging over the lands? Have you not seen the plan of your enemy to kill, steal, and destroy? The spiritual storms will rage as well, in My people and in My Church. This is the hour of decision in whom you will look to and in whom you will serve. Just as I hid My people, the Hebrews, in the land of Goshen during the time of judgment upon Egypt, I will provide a safe haven - the eye of the storm - for My people who will hear and will see and will dare to believe. While this is a season of storms in the world and storms in the churches, this is also a time of great spiritual blessings and acceleration for those who will receive. But you say, 'Who would not receive?' I say, 'Those who choose to go their own way calling it My way; those who have personal agendas that they call mine, those who choose to 'tell' Me what to do and how to do it; those who stand opposed to the fullness of My Word, daring to explain it away and making it impotent, politically correct; those who deny, or oppose the work of My Holy Spirit; and those who are accepting evil as good and good as evil, and yet calling themselves Christians. Evil is evil, good is good!
With the Angelic assignments will be visitations, dreams, visions, prophesy, with revelations and understandings given. What will seem impossible with man will be more than possible with God! There is to be an acceleration of growth and discipleship. Remember, My people die for the lack of knowledge, for the lack of a vision and purpose, for the lack of understanding. Remember also that spiritual growth will require testings and some tribulations to purge and refine you. Do not be afraid for I AM with you always! Trust in me and I will bring it to pass,
There will be great turmoil in the nations this year looking for the one to bring it peace. . And yet, the One who would bring the Peace has already come and conquered the enemy of your soul, The Prince of Peace. Man looks for man, Spirit looks for Spirit.
Attacks, death, fear, is the enemy's agenda. ISIS will be defeated and destroyed. America will rise up again; a leader will rise up and bring strength and order back to America. There will be a Jonathan for My David. I will set integrity and honesty back into the house called white. I will remove the dome of this house, the covering, and expose and reveal. Secret sins will no longer be secret, and there will be an accountability taken - for to whom much is given, much is required. France, Germany, Great Briton, nations of the earth, will have choices to make concerning Me. It is beginning, this separation of political correctness. Israel will rise up and stop worrying about what the other nations think, taking care of her own people, and stop giving away her land to the bullies who surround her.. This is the Apple of My Eye!
There will be acceleration in the movement of the Holy Spirit; the Gifts being restored and magnified for those who will believe. This is the year of Jubilee and I will restore all that the locusts have eaten, all that the enemy has stolen away from you. Do you believe? Will you receive? Will you be obedient to Me? Will you receive the benefits of your completed assignments? Do not be alarmed My children, all these things must come to past. Trials, persecutions and pressures, all reveal the refinement that My Bride needs to go through to ready herself for me. She will be beautiful, clothed in Righteousness and Glory; powerful in My Might. Do not fight against the work of the Holy Spirit in your life this year. Even if there is an attack against you for my sake, I will take it and make it good for you as you call on My Name and put your trust in Me. Russia will continue to boast and to conquer, to posture as the leader of the world. However, as America rises up, Putin will have less and less influence and control. Watch for a change of power in Russia. There will be a shifting of power in the nations, some good and some evil. There will be a sifting in My Church, in Shepherds as well, for judgment must begin in the House of the Lord.
China,Korea, Japan, you will bellow and make noise but I am doing a great work right under the noses of your leaders. I am gathering a people just for Myself in My name. I am showing Myself strong to them and you cannot stop this. I am taking a harvest in the nations and peoples of the middle east as well that cannot be stopped. And as I do this, I will do the same thing in your nations, your people, your families. Stand firm My people, stand and see the salvation of the Lord God Almighty. Stand and do not be moved, for you are to live by faith and not by sight. Believe in My Word for it is food to your spirit. A famine in the land - of any kind - indicates starvation of souls for My Word and My ways. Come to Me. Come in under My Wings. Come and be refined. Come and allow me to show Myself strong in your life this year. This is a year of great favor to those who are called by My Name; a year of restoration and accelerations. A year of Jubilee.
Father God, refine us in your Spirit, in Your Glory. Make us as pure and refined gold. Remind us not to struggle against Your work in us and through us this year, keeping in mind that You have an amazing and marvelous plan for each of our lives in You. Teach us to trust you, obey you, have ears to hear and eyes to see what the Spirit is saying and doing. Remind us Lord to be a partner to You and not against You. We accept this acceleration in the Spirit, we accept the restoration that You have planned for us. We trust you for our nations and continue to pray for our leaders and pastors. We know that You are a good God and desire to give us good things. We praise Your name this year, we enter with thanksgiving and worship. We accept the storms and know that You will always provide a way through them and provision in them. Amen

Word to the Church of 2015
20: to divide or judge, as in the sense of determining to accept or reject;
accountability; responsibility; waiting in expectancy; service
15: Acts of Divine Grace; resurrection
This is a marvelous and wonderful season for My Bride. There is an
expectancy in the air, says the God of Heaven and Earth. Expectancy for
goodness and mercy, favor and grace. Expectancy for harvest and for
fulfillment in My Church. I know there seems to be nothing but turmoil and
death and strife and calamities throughout the earth but I AM is moving!
I have heard the cries of my people for justice, for protection and provision, for freedom from oppression, and I AM moving. My Spirit is flooding over the earth even where the ground seems to be dry, even where there seems to be no life and no joy. Freedom is the cry; freedom from death and bondage and the oppressor of darkness. My Light is breaking forth, Fire is moving to clean and purge away the old ways, the useless ways of thinking. A new thing is springing forth! It is a change of heart for My People, and a change of thinking and doing. Turn away from the old ways and the old traditions, turn away to
Me. I am a creative God and I always have a plan and a way to go. Some of My People are understanding this and moving in My Power and My Might. This is good. Some of My People are still struggling with the old; they are withering away on the vine. They are perishing for lack of a vision. This is a year to open your eyes and to unstop your ears to hear what My Spirit is trying to say to you. Listen! This is a year of freedom and favor and victory for those who are truly called by My Name. This is the difference between a Christian and a Believer. It is a year of the beginning of the separation of the sheep from the goats, the wheat from the tares - Christians from Believers. Many call themselves Christians but have empty hearts and do not obey My Commands. Many are deceived that they are spiritually alright when they only have the mechanics of the Faith but not the fruit. What are you actively doing for the Kingdom? Where is your heart anchored?
This is a year of expectations and Acts of divine Grace and Favor to those whose eyes are upon Me and whose ears are opened unto Me; this is a year of resurrection for the spiritual dead and sleeping - to wake up andrise up into your rightful position is Me. This is a year of freedom from the powers of darkness that have tried to hinder you and stop you and block the blessing I am sending upon you. This is a year of freedom for those who struggle with oppressive thoughts and limited belief systems. Come. Come unto Me for freedom. My hand is open and My hand is extended to you. I will do all that I have promised you I would do. Will you take My Hand? Will you receive My Freedom? Will you serve Me and only Me from now on? Come. I Am waiting. Freedom and deliverance is yours! Amen.
- Pastor Sandra Matheson
Isaiah 42:6-7 "I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison, and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness."
Word To The Church of 2014:
9.15.13 To My Bride:
This is the season of The Bride. I am calling Her by name, I am beseeching Her to wake up and to rise up. I gave My Life for this Bride, I paid the cost for her, I have gone and prepared a place for Her, I have paid for He Wedding Feast. Now is the season for My Bride to consider Her cost and rise up to
Me, Her Bridegroom. What will your cost be? What is it that you will have to let go of, or perhaps go through, to pay this cost? Have you counted your cost before Me? Many, many of My People have paid the cost in the past days of My Bride. They have paid with sacrifice, persecution, blood, and the loss of their life. What will you sacrifice to be My Bride? My Bride is washed in My Blood and in the blood of the Saints and the Prophets of old. Come Church and receive your promise, your reward. So many of My People are distracted and sleeping; so many are becoming focused on this earthy life and vessel and not on the Creator of all Life. So many are caught up in the ways of this world, in the desires of this world. Beware least this distraction and this slumber will not cause you to be ensnared by the enemy and will come upon you quietly, stealing away the Promises of your God from you. Come, wake up! Come, rise up! Come My Bride and stand for your Bridegroom, for I will come quickly and suddenly and without warning.My Bride must rise up and prepare Herself for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. She must be washed with the Power of My Word and the anointing of My Holy
Spirit. She must be clean and without blemish and wrinkle, without guile and her own agenda, without any evil hiding within Her skirts, without pride and being puffed up with her own positions. At the moment She is being assaulted with false promises and false prophesies; with false teachings that are telling My people to embrace false doctrines and beliefs; to compromise, to become apathetic and lethargic, not believing that the Bridegroom comes. There is too much fear, too much unforgiveness, too much doubt and unbelief, too much evil and witchcraft filling up and weighing Her down. These should not be found in My Church, in My Bride. Remember the 10 Virgins preparing to meet the Bridegroom and that five were found wanting. Be prepared, for many will call out My Name, many will say they love Me, and many will say that they belong to My House and this will not be so, for they are polluted and confused. This is the season of the Church. This is the year of the Bride of Christ, this is the time and season for Her and for Her preparedness before Me. These will be times of trying and difficulties, of sanctification and purification. These will also be times of great Power and great movement and blessings of the Holy Spirit, of great harvests for the Kingdom and for My Father's Glory, of Signs and Wonders and Miracles - for all those that Believe. This will be a time and season for those who are My true Believers to stand out and to be separated and to declare where they stand in their Faith for Me. Are you for Me all the way, or all you against Me? Remember, if you do not acknowledge Me before men, I will not acknowledge you before My Father. The hour of decision for the Bride has come. The enemy is screeching and wanting his way, he is accusing and destroying, lying and stealing. At yet, as the enemy comes in, like a great flood -the Spirit of God now rises up and will overtake him. Remember that the gates of hell will not prevail against My Church, My Bride. So be of good courage and stand firm. Remember the promises of your God and His goodness, His sacrifice. My Word is sure and strong and true. I do not change. What I say will be, will be. Come My Bride. Embrace ALL of Me, do not pick and choose. ALL that I AM is for your blessing, your good, your need. Give ALL of yourself to Me and I will give all I AM to you! Rise up and be strong IN Me; be made whole and clean in the washing of My Word and in the Power of My Might, come out from your slumber and 'see'. Claim that which is yours, your inheritance in Christ, and the Power that has been given to you. Rise up into your rightful place and see what the Power of God will do in you and through you. Do not be afraid; do not be hesitant. This is your time and your season. Behold, for I come quickly!
- Pastor Sandra Matheson 9.15.13
Holy Spirit refresh us, your Bride. Wash us clean in your Word and in your ways.
Cleanse our hearts from all unrighteousness. Draw out our desire to serve you Lord, in Spirit and in Truth and in nothing less. We desire to be ready for our Bridegroom, to be pleasing to Him and not wanting before Him, when He comes. We repent of our selfish and wicked ways and lay down all our fears, doubts, unbelief, laziness and apathy. We repent of our unwillingness to let go of our grudges and unforgiveness for others, of our greed and slumber. We desire to be ready when you come. Do whatever you must to cleanse us -your Bride. We bow to you and desire to obey you. We purpose to serve you Jesus in a new and fresh way, to bring honor to you and a harvest to the Kingdom, here and now on earth. We desire to be your light and salt here, right now. Amen

John 14:1-3 ESV “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe alsoin me. In my Father's house are many rooms.

became drowsy and slept. ."

Word To The Church of 2013:
20: Holy, redemptive
13: Rebellion, rejection, backsliding
*A year of the awakening of Holiness in the Bride, the Church.
*A year of the exposing and sifting of rebellion, and rejecting of the Gospel, and backsliding of some Christians.
*This is the year the Great God Almighty will sift and separate and expose for all to see.
*It is the beginning separation of the wheat from the tares, the goats from

A Word for the Church.................
Wake up My Bride! Wake up! Now is not the time for slumber! Do you not know that the Bridegroom is about to come? Do you not know that you must be awake and ready to receive Him? Wake up for the time is short and the alarm is about to be sounded. This is the year for the shaking of the nations. It has already begun. The world stands stunned by what it sees, and yet this is but the beginning of things, of changes, upheavals, and sifting. For long enough I have endured the arrogance of the nations. For long enough I have tarried in My purposes. For long enough I have withheld My Hand. I have watched the rebellion of these nations and peoples, and the rebellion of My own Children. I am aware of the carelessness of the rejection of My Word - of Me. I see the backsliding of those who say they love
Me by rejecting the fullness of who I am, of what I am and of what I desire to give My Bride. They have rejected Me in the killing of the innocent and by calling that which is evil good, and that which is good evil. They do this because it makes them uncomfortable and the 'cost' of standing for righteousness is too high for them. This is the time and the season for the turning upside down of the nations. What they were they will be no more. What they have strived for will come to nothing. Arrogance, fighting, strife, hatred, and division. Look My people. Do you not see what is being done? Do not be afraid! Do not be dismayed! For even in the midst of chaos The Lord your God is creating. Do you not remember that even in the midst of the creation of the world there was chaos reigning and yet I created an amazing thing. This is the year of great expectations and signs and wonders and miracles. I am empowering My Bride as she was created to be in the Book of Acts - full of might and full of power; full of grace and compassion; full of faith and integrity. I am raising up a people who will be unstoppable in My Might and in My Power.
I am calling forth a people who will stand and not be moved. A people who are not afraid of man's opinion. I am calling forth those nations that I have called out of nothing to stand and be firm and to come back to their first love. All is not lost, but now is the time to do battle for the Kingdom. Are you for Me or against Me? I do not care what you think or feel, only that you believe totally and completely in Me! Come. I hold out My Right Hand to you, to give you Legal Right and Power in My Spirit. Come. I am calling you to this time of sifting and change and to great and mighty things. This is a year of the impossible, of the possibility of a possibility. Will you dare to believe? Will you move your mind from the natural to the supernatural in Me? If you will do this, and do this without reservation, I will cover over you and bless you abundantly and without limit. Come. Walk with My Spirit throughout this new year and throughout this new season. I am a great and mighty God. In Me is no lack of one good thing, of one good gift. Will you rise up and take My Hand? Will you come?
Rev. Sandra Matheson 9.23.12
To the Church of 2012:
20 indicates = Holy, Redemptive;
12 indicates =Apostolic fullness, divine government and election, discipleship
2012: A year of calling up into Holiness by God; a year of redemptive blessings and fulfillment, of harvest for those who labor for the Kingdom of God; a year of Apostolic fulfillment of the beginnings of the five-fold ministry offices; and a year of purposeful discipleship for true Believers in Christ. Kingdom establishment.
Listen My People, the time is short. Hear the Word of the Lord! It is the continuing of a season of correction in the House of the Lord. Those who are called by My name are to stand firm and be bold. You are to rise up in My Name! This will be the year of holiness, discipleship, apostolic fullness as well as apostasy; a year of division and separation between the holy and the unholy, truth and lie, light and dark. This will be a year of decision and the understanding of foundations and beliefs. This will be a year of revelation, and the revealing of secret things hidden and brought out into light. This will be a year for My People to decide where they stand and who they stand with. If you are not forMe – all the way and in every single issue of life – then you are against Me. There is no shadow in Me; all things must be in Light and revealed in holiness to stand before Me. Listen to Me! Behold, the days are short before I gather up My Bride. Be prepared and do not tarry. Do not sleep! Wake up! Youmust understand that not all things are as they seem to be, for great deception is slowly creeping over this world. . But be of good cheer for I have overcome the world! My Spirit is moving and My eyes are going to and fro the earth seeking those who would serve Me without guile and division of heart, with obedience and submission, with purpose and boldness. Thisis also the year of My great divine outpouring of favor and might upon those who are seeking Me, and whose hearts are pure before Me. This is a great outpouring of anointing, the abundance of the oil of the Holy Spirit about to break out! I see man’s agenda and it is not mine! This out-pouring of favor and might are for My children who have persevered through the fires and the tests and the pressures of this world, as well as those of the enemy of their Faith. This outpouring is for the Faithful and for those who believe for this anointing. You have heard that this is the season of sifting and separation and it is so. I am sifting leaders and nations and peoples and the shepherds of My Church. I will not tolerate what has always been. Many of My shepherds have turned away from Me and are seeking strange pastures, feeding their sheep dangerous and poisonous food and allowing them to drink stagnant waters. It is but a matter of time before these sheep are overcome with sickness and disease and parasites meant to destroy them. My sheep need direction and teaching and instruction and understanding to move in My Spirit and My Might. I am calling for My true Shepherds to feed My sheep; to protect and disciple My sheep; to prepare them for the coming of the Lord. This the season of the apostles, of discipleship, of restoring My power and might.It is a season of decision, of choices. Righteousness hangs in the balance; deception lies at the door. All the peoples of this earth are at a point of decision. What will you choose to do? Who will you serve? Who will be your master? Amen
Rev. Sandra Matheson 9.26.11
9.5.10 Word to the Church for 2011:
The number 20 signifies holy, redemptive.
The number 11 signifies end, finish, finality of something, justice
This is a time for the Church to finalize Her Holiness in Christ, to reach an end of impotence (as a whole) and move into all that Holiness in Christ represents. This is the beginning of Her Glory through Christ Jesus and all He has for Her! This is a time of ‘calling up God’s people’. It is a season and time to choose whom we shall believe and how we will serve Him fully and without any reservation.
The Spirit says to the Church, the Bride of Christ:
There are thunderings and lightening in heaven! There is a flurry of activity. The Spirit of God is rising up for His people and beginning His powerful move over the face of the earth. Look up My people! See what I am doing! Do you not perceive it? I am invading the darkness and My Light will prevail! My heart is moved by the crying out of My people, says the Lord. I hear and I am aware. Do not be dismayed in this hour, in this season, in this time, by what you ‘feel’ you see or do not see Me doing. There is an undercurrent of the Spirit happening even now, that you do not perceive. I hear My children say to Me, ‘Are you not there God? Do you not care? Do you not hear me???’ I say to you that I do! I hear and see and know all things! There is nothing that escapes My eye and My attention. I bend low to hear My people, I extend My hand to each one of you. Just as I surrounded Elisha with My warriorsand he called out to Me to reveal this supernatural event to his servant, to open his spiritual eyes so that he might see also, so I will do for those who cry out to Me to ‘see’! Know that I am here! Know that I am aware! It is time for My Bride to rise up. She is awakening. She is rubbing her eyes and stretching. I have waited for My Church to wake up and stand up and move and put action to My Word! Now is the time and the season to lay down every single weight that hinders you. I have not called My people to bondage, to heavy yokes, to workings of their own understanding. Lay all your ‘stuff’ down at My Throne where it belongs! I will move on your behalf and I will make a way where there seems to be no way. Stop begging Me, My children! I have given you the Power of Heaven to use in My Name. Use it. Pick up your Spiritual authority in My Name and in My Blood. Know what your position in Me is! The enemy has deceived you in that you do not know! You have been given all the power and rights of the righteous through Jesus Christ. You have your inheritance in Him. It is yours. Seize it back from your enemy and choose to believe the Truth and not the lie. Remember My word to you, ‘And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony……’! This is you! Your enemy IS a defeated foe. He has no power over you unless you give it over to him! Do not be deceived; he looks to see whom he may devour, he looks for the weak ones, he looks for those whose focus is on the problem and not on Me! He looks for those who are complacent and do not see the alarm. Dare to believe Me! Dare to allow Me ‘out of the box! I am sounding the alarm! I am awakening My Bride. This is the year of Power and Might and Victories! This is the year that My Church steps up into holiness, because I am holy! This is the year of consecration, of igniting the Glory of the Lord so that it can be manifested and can be seen in all My people, great and small. This is the year you will hear the roaring of the thunderings and lightening that is heaven. Does My Word not say to you that it is My will that it will be done for you on earth as it is in heaven? Does My Word not say to you that I will not share My glory with another? Does it not say to you that Idesire that My Glory be seen in My people? Then so be it!
Allow My will to be done on earth as it is in heaven! Open your hands before Me; extend your arms and face to Me. I will fill you up to overflowing with power and might and a way to break the bondages and darkness and heavy yokes that the enemy has tried to place on you. It is all deception for you hold the key! It is in your hand! It is the supernatural power of My Name and My Might through My Holy Spirit. Embrace Him, allow Him to fill you up. Do not be afraid of the Supernatural for I have not given you a spirit of fear or timidity, but one of Peace, and Joy, and Love, and a Sound Mind - able to make good, sound, and righteous decisions. I am a Supernatural God! Everything about Me is Supernatural! Does not my Word tell you that you have been given the Mind of Christ? If I have said it and My Word declares it, is it not so? Of course it is!! It is Yea and Amen! I am moving, says the Lord. I am moving by the power of My Spirit. Those who will turn to Me with all their heart will see this movement. I am the God of the supernatural, the supernatural of the positive and the negative. I am God over all! I am a supernatural God and you must worship Me in Spirit and in Truth. IN SPIRIT, says the Lord. Get out of your own understanding and into the realm of the possibility of a possibility! Have I not said to you, without prejudice, that I would show you great and mighty things that you do not know as you step out of leaning on your own understanding and lean into Me and My Spirit? You have worshiped Me in Truth,
now worship Me in Spirit! Yes! Now is the hour, says the Lord. Now is the time. Be encouraged My little ones. You are about to embark on a journey with Me into the realm of the supernatural and, ‘Suddenly’, you will see the wonders of My Hand just as My Hebrew children did in the wilderness. Do not grumble or mummer any longer! Give Me a thankful heart and I will take the reigns of your future and turn it around and expand and enlarge your territory and power and authority and victories in Me! Be still and know that I AM God. Be still and observe the wonders of your God……………………! Amen
Psalm 40:5 NIV "Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare."
1 Kings 11:38 “If you do whatever I command you and walk in My ways and do what is right in My eyes by keeping My statutes and commands, as David My servant did, I will be with you. I will build you a dynasty as enduing as the one I built for David and will give (My people) Israel (all the promises and inheritance of) to you.”

10.5.09 For the Church of 2010
2010:Indicates the measure of the Church in testing, in resurrection of the
beginning – in signs and wonders and miracle. 2000 = Church age ending in
resurrection 10 = order, government, measure, trial and testing
O My People, rise up! Rise up I say! Listen! Do you not hear? Do you not hear the
rumbling of Heaven?? Do you not hear the Thunder of Heaven? Are you not listening? says the Lord. No, My children, most of you are asleep. Most of you are comfortable. Many of you are confused. Some of you have begun to wander. My Church is limping and is powerless as a whole. This aught not to be!! It is the Season of My Church. It is the time for My Church. I am calling out to Her, Wake up! Wake up, I say. Listen to Me. The Angels of Heaven have been given their ssignments. The Angels of Heaven have been called out and set out into motion to serve and protect My Church. It is time for My Supernatural to blow in and through My Church. It is needful, and it is time.
My people are crying out to Me. I hear them, I hear them plead and cry and
wail out to Me. There is fear in My House, declares the Lord. Where did that come from? Is it from Me? NO! It is from the enemy! Why have you allowed him to slip in? Why are you giving him place in My House? Why do you listen to him??? I have designated that My House should be a House of Prayer, a House of Worship, a house of Salvation, Healing, and Provision. I am more than enough My children! Yet so many of you are fearful and confused, wailing and grieving, impotent in faith, begging Me for what I have already given. My work for you is total andcompleted. It lacks nothing but for you to reach out and appropriate – by FAITH – what has been given to you as My Church. I am rising up says the Lord of Hosts; I am rising up and moving in My Glory. I desire to set My House in order and to bring My Bride into her Glory. It is the Season. Now is the time. All of Heaven has stepped up and is moving out to minister and provide according to My Word. Reach out and embrace Me. Open your hearts up to Me. Trust Me that I long to give you the desires of your heart! You have not because you ask not and when you do ask, you ask in fear, doubt, and unbelief. Listen to your words, My people! They
are your heart before Me! How can this be???! I desire for My Church to move into the fullness of Her time right now. What does this look like, you say. - Unlimited Grace, Favor, and Power. It is unlimited power to move in My Name, the Name of Jesus; unlimited power to move in and through the gifts of My Holy Spirit. Reach out and receive what I have already provided for you, what I have already given unto you. You lack not one good thing in Me; you lack not one Spiritual
Gift in Me. You have forgotten. You have laid down your armor. You have
listened to the whisper of a lie, just as Eve did, and you have accepted it as
Truth: God is not able, God does not care, it is my cross to bear, it is my lot in life, it was for a time past, God’s blessings are for others and not me! How grieved I am that you listen to that whisper, and not to the Thunderings of My Voice, the power of My Word! Turn you hearts back to Me and I will show you amazing things that you do not know. Trust Me and see if I truly will not open that Portal of Heaven over you and pour out My Blessings upon you and yours without reservation - in your homes, in the marketplaces, and in My House, the Church!! This is the Season of Power and Anointing to those who will hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the Church. Steep yourselves in My Word that you might know the Truth and move in Faith and boldness and confidence in Me. Be bold and step out into Me. As you step out into my Spirit and My Power, I will honor you and usher in signs and wonders and miracles. I have said that you would do greater things than these – than I did as I walked the earth with mankind. Now is the Season of the Church. Listen!! Look to Me. Do not look to Man or the Devil. Look to Me. Do as I did. Speak as I spoke. Move as I moved. Trust Me. Focus on Me! Rise up Church! Rise up I say! Now is the season. Now is the harvest. Now is the Glory of My Church. Wake up, little ones! Do not be afraid. I am preparing an
army; My eyes are going to and fro throughout the whole earth seeking those who will serve me, and serve me with all their hearts, and minds and spirit. My anointing is going forth from Heaven. I will choose to use the simple ones, the trusting ones, the ones without great positions. Will I find you willing? Will you rise up and be part of My army? Will you give heed and hear the Thunderings of Heaven? Or will you bow down and heed the of the enemy? The time is short and the enemy is aware of the activity in Heaven. He is angry and is stepping up his activities. Beware, little ones. The enemy is rising up in My House! He has the world; he desires the Church! Remember my Word to you, “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the World.” And “I have overcome the world….” Rise up! Rise up and take your place in My House, in My Church. Be strong and courageous. Be of Good Faith. Love one another. Be in unity in the Faith. Defeat the Devil with My Word. Rise up! Now is the Season of My Church! Do not be fearful! Purpose to walk in Faith! Purpose to appropriate what I have already given! Rise up, My
Church! Rise up! Do not slumber, do not sleep, least you be found wanting as the Bridegroom comes! Amen
Rev. Sandra Matheson 10.9.09
Every year, around mid October – early November the Lord gives me a Word
for the Church. Until this year, I have only shared this Word with a few, This time I feel it is to be given out to the Pastors and Churches the Lord has connected me with. Therefore, I am sending it out to you. I hope that it will speak to your spirit and encourage you in the Lord. May it bear witness to you…………………….
As I watched the beginnings of all the election coverage for the Presidency of the United States on November 4th, I was strongly impressed by the Lord that Barack Obama would win. This was not unsettling to me and I was surprised at that. The Lord told me that His people were to be at peace with this decision, for it was of His plan and His purposes. All of His people are to remember that God is sovereign and always in control, and there is a Plan going on here. As I reflected on this, the Lord asked me if I had not sensed a shift in the spiritual realm. I was startled andfelt my spirit leap as I answered, “Yes, I did. What is this?” The Lord told me that there is now a shift and a change in the spirit realm and only those of His people who are spiritually discerning would sense it (discern it) and know it. He says that this is the time for the preparation of the harvest, the separating of the wheat from the tares (Matthew 13:24-30). He said that the judgment begins now, at the house of God (1 Peter 4:17) first, to begin this preparation. He told me to write this down and to tell His People. I must say here that I have talked with
several other friends who are prophets also and they feel they have been given the same message. It is nice to know we are in agreement.
2000= Church age ending in resurrection
9= harvest, fullness of development,
fruit of the Spirit, Gifts of the Spirit
11-07-08: Word to the Church, 2009
Behold, says the Lord, for I am now beginning a work in My House. I have seen what is happening in My House and what is not. The prayers of many are rising up to My Throne and I hear. I see that some of My People are striving to move forward and are accepting of what I have provided for them: for salvation, for holiness, for purpose and boldness, for authority and victory. I see that some of them stand with their hands up and their mouths open and wonder why I do not send the power of the Holy Spirit into their midst. Do you not know that I have already done that? Do you not know that you have all that you need to have? Do you not know that there is not one more thing that I can provide for you? Do you not know that You have the power to receive or not receive? Do you not know that it is done?? Some of you are bold and say to Me. “No matter what Lord, we want your presence and your power in our midst. We want boldness and authority and freedom and victory. We are stepping out and will not give concern what ‘man’ may think or what ‘man’ may say.” I say yes! I say move on and I will honor you! I say it is mine to manifest and it is yours to initiate. Trust Me. Trust Me. It is my Name, it is my reputation. And I am a jealous God. I will not share my Glory with anyone. And yet, some of you still stand waiting and with your mouths open. You continue to pray and to plead and to ask. There is a time to pray and a time to act; a time of faith put into action. Why do you hesitate? Of what are you afraid? Where does fear have a place in Me? Is it not completed? Have I not made provision? Does not perfect love cast out fear? It is because some of you limit Me, says the Lord. You limit my Holy Spirit by placing parameters around him, saying you have to do this or you have to do that. He has no trust or freedom to move. He has been placed in ‘man’s restriction’ out of fear that the wrong thing will be said or that the wrong person will speak. Do you have My thoughts, says the Lord? Do you understand My ways? Cast off your fear of ‘man’ my people. Draw close to Me. It is my desire that my Bride be adorned with my glory, my purpose, my power, my boldness. It is my desire that my people seek my Face and not just my Hand. Now is the time, says the Lord; now is the time for the fullness of My Spirit to be visited upon my Church. Now is the time for My Power to manifest in My People. Do not ask, move! Step out into Faith. Put Faith into action. Be not just ‘hearers of My Word, but doers of My Word’. My People, you must understand that there is a ‘stepping up’ in the Spirit and a surge of activity in Heaven. The enemy is also aware of this. It is a time of decision for My People, to decide what it is that they truly believe in. In times of stress and in times of difficulty, what do you express? Is it to immediately turn to Me or to become fearful and angry? There is no more time to ‘play church’! These are times to divide the wheat from the tares. My People cannot say one thing and do another any longer. There is now a calling up of My Church. Will you be a church found wanting, or will you be a church anchored and moving in Me, strong in the might of My Spirit? Now is the hour of decision. Trust that I will provide. I will surround you with those who have what you need. Have I not provided for My Church with My gifts? Some of you do not see. You do not discern those I have placed around you for such a time as this. I am calling up My People. I am calling up My Prophets. I am calling up My Anointed Ones. I am setting them in the Body to do what they have been set apart to do. My Church is crying out for signs, wonders, and miracles. Am I a God of preference? No, I say, I am not! I will move where I have freedom and expectation to move. My Shepherds need to perceive this. These are perilous times and the spirit realm has shifted. My angels are girded up to assist My People. Their assignments have been defined. However, the enemies’ camp is heightened as well. He is releasing his armies of destruction and mayhem. I shall raise up a standard against him in those that seek Me with all their hearts, and are bold in Me. I stand ready to do so. Call on Me! Now is the time for amazing provisions and warfare and victory for My Church. Do not fear, do not tremble, do not be dismayed, do not be discouraged. I am a mighty God and I stand with My People. I am ready to show you great and mighty things that you do not know. Move in Peace, move in Faith, and move in My Strength. I will bless you and I will honor you, says the Lord. Amen.
