“Watch the rush as they come out as a royal priesthood”

I was a half an hour into a lovely prayer hike today when out of the blue the Lord starting speaking this word:

“Constantine! Constantine! Great you were to usher in My Kingdom but with princes and magistrates, pomp and circumstance.  My princes and princesses are in caves, like David.  Watch the rush as they come out as a royal priesthood, walking in My Spirit and freedom, prophesying and healing in My Son’s name.  The earth has shaken and will shake again as the glory and joy of My sons and daughters sweep over the nations like fresh waters on dry lands.  And there will be laughter and rejoicing because I am their Father.”

Underwater homes will begin emerging in 3 years

I had a very clear vision a few days ago of the Lord’s hands cupping a submerged home under water, I’m estimating ten or twenty feet, under an ocean’s surface but this is a vague guess. I saw the home gently rock left to right in his hands, as if moving with the rocking ocean. Then I could see people inside the home, there was light and air inside and they were enjoying their family life. They were living under water as if in a submarine home. The Lord never let go of holding and cupping the home under water. Then I saw the water level start to lower and brighter sunlight radiate above. I saw a large, distinct number three appear over the home, which I immediately understood to be three years, the top of the three stuck a little out of the water. Then the waters lowered slowly and the roof of the home emerged into air. I had the impression not all homes that have been underwater will emerge in three years but that is the beginning, when the waters that have submerged homes will begin lowering and eventually, over time, disappearing.

I heard this today in seeking more clarity from the Lord,
“In 3 years what has been submerged will begin to emerge. This is a comfort to trust in Me to keep you in your home with air to spare and you will live as if not under water. Breathe and live and know I am holding you in the palms of My hands.”

An image that immediately came to mind after I wrote the above is the following scripture. I had not remembered this event covered three days. I believe the number “three” is not a coincidence:

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward the sky so that darkness will spread over Egypt--darkness that can be felt.” So Moses stretched out his hand toward the sky, and total darkness covered all Egypt for three days. No one could see anyone else or leave his place for three days. Yet all the Israelites had light in the places where they lived. Exodus 10:21-23 (NIV)

Update as of October 27, 2013 10:00am:
This prophecy, given as the market was declining and a half a year before the national real estate market fell to new lows, is already starting to come to pass this year. I took hope from the prophecy that real estate values would begin recovering from being underwater in a relatively short time frame of 3 years, by fall 2014, despite the widespread carnage of values nationally. Please note the prophecy stated, “what has been submerged will begin to emerge,” thus, it is not a promise that every single underwater home will emerge.  It is a promise, however, of a recovery and restoration for many if they hold on and trust in the Lord, “This is a comfort to trust in Me to keep you in your home with air to spare and you will live as if not under water. Breathe and live and know I am holding you in the palms of My hands.”

The S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index showed, “as of May 2013, average home prices across the United States are back to their spring 2004 levels…. The recovery from the March 2012 lows is 15.9% and 16.5% for the 10-City and 20-City Composites.”

Zillow writes in their August 20, 2013 press release, “All 30 of the largest metro areas covered by Zillow registered both monthly and annual appreciation in July, and all have hit their bottom and are expected to show appreciation in the next 12 months.”

Update as of November 22, 2013:

“Fast-paced price increases have helped bring many underwater homeowners afloat. In the third quarter, 1.4 million homeowners rose to the surface as their home values once again outranked their equity…. The negative equity rate now stands at 21 percent, down about one-third from its peak of 31.4 percent.”

Update as of October 18, 2014: 

I thought it time for an update since it is 3 years from this prophecy.  “According to the second quarter Zillow Negative Equity Report, the national negative equity rate continued to decline in Q2 2014, falling to 17 percent, down 14.4 percentage points from its peak (31.4 percent) in the first quarter of 2012. Negative equity has fallen for nine consecutive quarters as home values have risen.”  Negative equity, aka homes under water, have fallen from 31.4 percent to 17 percent, almost half the homes have emerged from being under water. 

Update as of September 8, 2015: 

The word I received from the Lord on October 19, 2011 said that “In 3 years what has been submerged will begin to emerge” and I commented, “I had the impression not all homes that have been underwater will emerge in three years but that is the beginning, when the waters that have submerged homes will begin lowering and eventually, over time, disappearing.”

Here is a telling graph from Zillow that the percentage of negative equity (i.e. underwater homes) actually stayed high between 30% and 31% about 9 more months from October 2011 through the first half of 2012 (as nationwide home prices were still declining in value).  The percentage of negative equity homes didn’t start dropping substantially until the second half of 2012.  Negative equity (underwater homes) have declined from about 31% of all homes at the time of the October 2011 prophecy to 14.4% recently in the second quarter of 2015.  This Zillow chart shows the prophecy coming to pass.  God is good!

"Bible Belt" in San Jose, California and surrounding cities

Bible Belt! Bible Belt!” The Lord proclaims, “From San Jose [California] to Morgan Hill to Gilroy. Milpitas, too and Mountain View. But the heart will be San Jose. They will carry Bibles into public places and read. They will meet in homes and call it church where I dwell amongst my children and Jesus is their Lord. Where the walls come down in My church and there are no barriers between.

They will love each other. Love will overflow out of homes where the churches are, where all my children meet, and into the streets to feed the orphans, widows and hungry for Me. The South Bay [of the San Francisco Bay Area] is my Bible Belt in California,” says the Lord. Watch me do this thing. It will be a hot spot of love and grace and goodness as My people find each other and meet and love, love, love. You hunger for the first century churches in homes and will have it!

Peace-filled Defiance

The Lord woke me two nights ago that this year [beginning with Rosh Hashanah] is the year of peace-filled Defiance. We have entered this new season. Those who live completely in Jesus’ purchase of us by His blood, those who know our uprightness doesn't have anything to do with our good behavior or works but is attributed to us solely through Jesus' shining perfection, will be led by His peace and voice and, thus, become inseparable partners in revealing His mighty, miracle-working, dunamis power on earth. This understanding of us in Christ and Christ in us - one spirit born in humility and faith, transcending the grips of this world like a freely rising dove from glory to glory - will unleash the latter day supernatural power and toppling of the enemy's edifices that Jesus' own are seeking. In this place where we have the mind of Christ and not our own, there is stalwart, confident, prayerful, peace-filled Defiance in the face of the enemy's constructions.

Peace-filled Defiance couples with the humble and trusting Rest learned in the testing and trials that many have been experiencing.

“Are you a king in the cave [like David]? Are you a prime minister in the prison [like Joseph]?

“I created who you are. Do not lose sight of who you are in Me. You must know who you are in Me. You must know. David knew. Joseph knew. Moses knew. But they lived in tight cocoons at first, unable to expand their wings and fly in My might. David spent years persecuted and hiding. Joseph spent years as a lowly servant and in prison. Moses spent years tending sheep and not people. When you fly you will fly only for Me and in Me and not be caught in the spider web of this world. Stay separate from the world. Do not be of the world. You will be tempted and have envy seeing the world fattening its belly with delights you want to taste until you have no more envy. Separation can be painful until you experience what I have prepared for you. You have never been separated like this. You will taste of My table and see it is the most succulent.”
