Release The Captives - Devotion from the Valley News, Temecula
Release The Captives
By Lynn Donovan
There are many of My children who have languished in this end-time season, locked in the enemy’s prisoner of war camps. The barbed wire of disillusionment and abandonment, gouge and leave bleeding scars. Through this extended, grueling season of illness, persecution has devastated their very soul. They are prisoners of war, left abandoned on the plains of battle. Whispers of finality through betrayal, hopelessness, apathy and fear are the lies that fortify their restraints.
These are My Beloved Children who love Me and once believed in My truths and Kingdom. But the blows of darkness birthed perceived falsehoods, speaking the lie that I was unaware of their sufferings. They turned toward the lies that My Sovereign hand somehow allowed the brokenness and tears overwhelmed their faith.
From My Throne; My voice thunders in peeling crack of raw emotions and booming love.
It is NOT SO!
My love and power are always enough to liberate every soul.
You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. —Psalm 56:8
I have wept with you as I collected every tear as a token that restitution is due. I have stored each droplet that cries out for vindication of all that the enemy of life has stolen.
Today, My children who are beset by bitterness and strife, determine your heart to trust Me again. Pray. Speak to me again, for I never left you alone. People may have failed you, left you devastated, lost in rejection, but I stand for you. I am your hope, redemption, your healing, life and I have every answer to your questions. I AM your place of refuge.
Delay not another moment. Release your heart to Me. I’m a moment away. Your faith and My love are your healing script. Pray without ceasing and never give up.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever. —Revelation 21:4
Thank you so much for being a part of what Jesus is doing in the world and on the World Wide Web. Lynn Donovan

End Times and A Possible Global Church. What do you think?
Nation of God, Lynn here.
So, I had an entirely different post planned and written for today. However, in my spirit, I can’t remain quiet. There are important issues of the day that are relevant to our faith, our home and our marriage. And so, with fear of rejection or criticism, I’m stepping out to share some things upon my heart. I ask that you read what I share and consider how these current day issues are a factor in your life, faith and within your marriage. And I also ask that you forgive me for being timid in the past as I avoided issues which are challenging for all of us to agree upon.
Finally, I ask that you discern what the Lord and His Word are speaking to you about the topics, share in the comments with love. As a body of believers, we need to discuss issues in the news and in our churches in order to resolve within ourselves our stance because very soon, our conviction may be the only thing that keeps us from falling down the slippery slope. And if you disagree with me, that’s okay. Please be kind in the comments.
So, where to start.
Today I feel absolutely overwhelmed to write about a process that I had with the Lord this morning. It has been the strangest experience and powerfully revelatory. So, I will walk you through it and then let’s talk about the implications in the comments.
Last night I awoke in the middle of the night. I distinctly heard two names. One of which I am familiar and one I’ve never heard before.
William H. Taft
William F. Barkley
Two Williams. WEIRD!!! Can I just ask you, has this happened to you? Have you awakened hearing a person’s name whispered in your ear at night???? I’m tellin’ ya…. WEIRD.
Early this morning, with coffee in hand, I sat down in my prayer room and proceeded to Google search these names.
Whoa. To my astonishment, William F. Barkley, was a theologian who was born December 5, 1907 and died in 1978. The interesting thing about this Professor and pastor of the Church of Scotland is that he denied the reality of the Trinity. He was a prolific writer as well as teacher.
Interesting. Okay Lord.
Then I searched William Taft, twenty seventh president of the United States. Brilliant man who was a four-term President as well as a Supreme Court Justice. A long history of public service adorns his resume. However, after searching further I discovered he presented himself as a Christian but fully adopted the doctrines of the Unitarian church. BTW, I knew nothing about either of these people nor the Unitarian Church prior to this morning.
So, in my process with the Father I asked: Father, why are you showing me this?
His response: This is information about the future. Denial of the Trinity.
You see, both Williams had a singular similarity. They adopted doctrine that denies the truth of the Triune God. Unitarianism is central to the denial of the Trinity and it goes further to deny the deity of Christ as well as the denial of the supernatural.
Instantly I understood why the Lord placed these two names into my mind in the middle of the night and their commonality is the denial of the Trinity. The Lord went on to impress upon me that in the future, end-times, the church will unite under Unitarianism as it is the belief system that welcomes all faiths.
The Lord created this name puzzle with the Williams to be so unlikely, so crazy, that I would have zero doubt as to the message and that it was of the Lord.
Gang, I rarely hear names in the middle of the night, especially names of people I don’t even know.
Sitting in my prayer room, I grieved as I thought about the millions that will be deceived. Unitarianism began under the original name, Arian…. Good grief… (Arian Nation, Nazism sprang to mind.) The denial of the Trinity, then denial of Christ as Deity and finally when all possibility of the supernatural realms is tossed out, the gates of hell open and all faiths will unite. If Christ is merely a human man like the rest of us, then the power of the cross is a lie.
BTW, My notes from my prayer time.
However, in this moment on the couch in my prayer room, a vigorous truth arose in my spirit. Here it is:
The truth about Jesus is that He is different than any other man who walked this earth. He was born of a virgin. The seed of God is incorruptible and wholly pure, divine. The DNA is pure and unaltered and the perfection of mankind, thus his blood sacrifice meets every demand of the law and the prophets. He is one of the three in the Trinity. He is deity. He is the Word. He is the Lamb who took away the sins of the world.
Why this history lesson? My SUMite friends, awareness is our profound gift as we face the largest battle in the church in this current day, deception. If we are unaware of the schemes of satan, we are doomed to fall into this big, beautiful, welcoming, church that still allows me to be a Christian but at the core denies the power and truth of Christ.
I will tell you this, shallow believers will run with passion to the doors. Our unbelieving spouses will smile and say, “Now, this sounds like a church I could attend.”
I’m not kidding. These scenarios are very real for our lives. So…… Now, here is the difficult part of this message. You are aware. Now you are accountable.
What can we do. Praise Jesus that He is showing His Bride the truth. He is actively and with wild efforts, such as speaking names I don’t know into my ear at night, making us aware of what is coming. He is urging us to prayer and to seek out the truths and have them LOCKED IN our heart, mind, soul and strength.
Pray for wisdom. Pray for discernment. Pray for revelation (Ephesians 1:18) Pray that God’s truth will be made known and deception defeated. In Jesus name.
Thanks for allowing me to share some of my fantastic adventures with our King!
On Friday: Censorship…. Ya, let’s keep the controversial subjects rolling.
One final note. Of course, what I have shared is a possibility that God is making me aware. Our prayers can delay, deny and cancel the works of the enemy. To that end is why I believe the Lord is showing me this information. Let's pray. Let's believe. Let's triumph. Hugs, Lynn
A Good Father
From my prayer time. February 3, 2018.
Lynn: I’m here. I’m listening. Speak to me…..
Father: I love you with an everlasting love.
Lynn: Papa, when did you create me? My Spirit?
Father: Before time began. We created the stars and marveled at their beauty. Fathomed the universe and beheld the forming of oceans and the waves lap upon the land as it rose up out of the water.
Lynn: Dad, why does it have to be so hard and ugly on earth?
Father: It doesn’t have to be that way. You can always change it.
Lynn: But why don’t we?
Father: Fear, helplessness, selfishness, pride, laziness. (He pauses) The wickedness of satan.
My child, yet, you do not perceive all the goodness that surrounds you. Goodness is everywhere, in pockets of unrecognized love that is passed, person to person, good deed to good deed. Goodness is beheld in my love, manifesting in endless rounds of beauty in nature, hope in the human heart, provision and creativity.
The sons of perdition work through deception to infiltrate goodness and plant seeds of hopelessness, confusion, sorrow and despair.
But as a child of Mine, you are fully equipped to destroy the works of the enemy. Lynn step outside on this dazzling morning. What do you see?
Lynn: The brilliant depths of the sunrise sky, evergreen trees with bristle cones of perfection and anointed with a divine aroma. I hear the birds, O Papa, they are singing worship in an unrehearsed symphony.
Father: Ah yes, My beloved daughter, every dawning of the day, I listen as they pour their hearts out and fill the air with sound. It is the same when you pray. Melodies of love pierce My heart. Life is all about, thriving, singing, creating. The natural world is a reflection of beauty and hope of the Kingdom, eternal.
My daughter, now consider the human mind. Its capacity remains woefully untapped by most. It remains a mystery to science, complex, brilliant, creative, powerful. And the human body is a creation of vast and varying systems complete in detail and function. Ah My child, the spirit! The Spirit of God that dwells in the body. The spirit, my child, is where all things converge, intellect, wisdom, revelation, peace, divine health, power, authority…. Dominion.
I have already given you all you need for life and Godliness (2 Peter 1:3). It’s in the Spirit. For your words are spirit and they are life (John 6:63). When you turn your pursuits away from the deceiver then focus fully upon My love, My nature, My purposes and plan, Upon Me, your spirit becomes fully alive. Within unfolds the wisdom of My power. It realigns your DNA to holiness and creates the Kingdom of God within. From within flows outwardly, rivers of living water that changes destruction, heals the ugly and redirects the difficult issues of life. (John 7:37-38)
This is the truth, seek ye the Kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you. Pursue Me and perceive. You SHALL see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
My child, take Me with you wherever you go today, and I shall reveal My glory in the ordinary and in the divine. I adore you, your Father.
He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, 2 Timothy 1:9
You Have Everything
You Have Everything
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.— 2 Peter 1:3 (NIV)
My child, have you finally grown weary? Is the cloak of frustration that covers your soul, consuming your energies? Are the bonds of darkness, worry, unrest, anxiety, blotting out your brilliance, intellect and power?
I look upon your heart and perceive your questions. Be assured, I am intently listening to you as you pray. Yet, My sweet child, bend your knee and pray differently.
Your prayers and petitions are scrambling for a hasty resolution to your current struggle and pain. But, alas, haste offers merely a temporary relief while closure remains aloof and distant. I long to place into your life a permanent healing, a remedy of such magnitude that never again will you struggle with this preponderance of ache.
Seek not simplicity of answers.
Seek My heart.
Turn the hours of petition-prayers to plunging prayer. Ask to enter in. Seek to be welcomed into depths of perfection. Jump off the cliff of mundane and safe footing, swim through the seas of love, grace, mercy. Touch the center of My heart. Worship in expectant peace. Rest in Me.
Peace resides within revelation of My realm, providing every resolution to every problem of mankind.
Revelation unlocks wisdom. Request wisdom and I will send her to you, laden with scrolls of decree for your future. Revelation downloads transport simplicity of design to complicated challenges, impossible relationships and evil assignments. Revelation is a realm of hope. It is joy personified in delight as resolutions arrive. It is all you need. Revelation is your power on earth, My child.
Seek revelation from My heart. Pray with greater understanding.
The angelic are summoned. Warriors of God arrive. Give a SHOUT! Hallelujah! Strategies and blueprints of heaven unfold within your mind.
The mere answers you are seeking are swallowed up on GLORY as my revelation, purposes, love and power are displayed through your life.
This day, turn to revelation prayer. The move of God in your life will bring the awareness of Me to others. Arise and take this world for the Kingdom of The Most High!
