Vernon J Neitzell on facts


Facts are momentary conditions of specific indicators. But God's truth, the hidden reality, has final say so. Even if it takes a cataclysmic miracle to change everything at the last second, God will uphold His Word!
Facts are fickle.
God's Word is established in the heavens forever!
Don't believe an evil report.
Only believe the final report! ...vjn

Jo Ellen Stevens ~Open Up The Sky And Let Down The Ladder~

~Open Up The Sky And Let Down The Ladder~

I was at a Kari Jobe concert one night with some friends and my husband and it was more of a worship experience than a concert. All at once this concert went into an intense time of worship and people were in the isles on their knees sobbing like babies. I opened my eyes at one point and there in front of me was Kari singing and an iridescent rainbow colored ladder was coming through the ceiling and came down and was attached to her back. It was electric and alive .. 

At first I thought it was a part of a light show so I asked my husband if he saw it and he said no that he hadn't and I asked my friends and they had not seen it either. I then realized that I was seeing an open vision. 

I asked the Lord what that was when I got home that evening and he said that it was the Ladder that Jacob had seen that the angels of God were ascending and descending upon into the earth and that we become the gates of The Lord of hosts when we lift up our heads in worship to him that allow heavens armies into the earth as it says in Psalms 24.    

Genesis 28:12  (KJ21) "And he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it."

V. 16-19 "And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I knew it not.”

 And he was afraid and said, “How fearsome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.”

 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar and poured oil upon the top of it.

 And he called the name of that place Bethel [that is, The house of God]; but the name of that city was called Luz at the first."

 Psalms 24.7-8  "Lift up your heads, O ye gates! And be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle."

You see we now are that house of God where Jacob made an altar so we are that Gate of heaven.. Jesus said that what we allow on earth is allowed or whatever we forbid is forbidden.. We have the authority and when we worship we are speaking God's word and we are singing and speaking of what is already settled in heaven!  We then become the gate that allows this that is finished to come into our atmosphere.. Oh Glory to God!! We let down the Ladder so to speak as we worship!! So ask yourself today...What or who am I allowing into my Home, my city, or even my country!!  It is time to become that house of worship and prayer that Jesus said His house should be and let down the ladder!! Glory to God!! 

Arise Shine! Jo Ellen Stevens!

When Everything Presses in ... HE is the Pressure Relief Valve

I write this out of my own life.  I am under a LOT of pressure.  Not evil pressure.  Pressure to get things done. QUICK.  They are taking a great deal of time and energy and I see it in my decisions about what is first.. and second.

When I have reached the end of my capacity to deal with all the demands on my life.. I have to retreat to a place where TIME and PRESSURE have no influence.  Eternal things.  Not Temporal.

That is where HE lives and where I am a citizen.  Not here in the demanding. 

I know that positionally speaking I live in an eternal state.  I already have eternal life.  What I don't have is the capacity to merge time and eternity.  Father can.. 

When I come into that place with Him.. I find peace.  I find rest.

What David said becomes my cry:

I said, "Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest--  I would flee far away and stay in the desert;  Psalm 55:6-7

The pressure relief valve of life is hidden in HIM

Nebraska Prophetic Moment

 I woke up this morning in Nebraska. Husker country. At breakfast in the hotel everyone was wearing a red shirt. Then.. (why does He speak to me when it seems to be so innocent) the Spirit of the Lord came over me. He said to me, "So called christian culture is unrelated to what you see -- my witness is unknown among these people".

It's not that the folks all around me were pagan, hell bent, it's just that Jesus is far outside of the life they lead. Sure, I'm guessing that for the most part they take their kids to Sunday school, they show up for an hour at church. But football was their religion today. Tomorrow something else. I don't feel like Father was angry, but letting me know that we are missing it. Here is what we are missing:

  • We preach salvation when they don't feel unsaved
  • We preach deliverance from sin when they feel no actual guilt
  • We Preach sin consciousness when they are completely distracted by the world
  • We preach heaven and hell when they already believe they are going to heaven
  • We preach cultural degradation when they think this is normal, gay marriage, et al
  • We preach end times when they think we are circus clowns when we do
  • We preach the love of God when they don't even know God.. and can't relate
  • We preach sacraments that they see as an insurance policy and nothing else
  • We preach an Anthony Robbins Dale Carnegie as feel good second rate motivation

It's not working. Most of what is happening in church is losing. We are outliers. We no longer have what it takes to reach the world.  We must stop.. and begin to become what Jesus told us to be..

Witnesses that demand discipleship. Living victory and saying follow me as I follow Him.

Demonstration of His Power is what turns people:

  • HEALING PEOPLE LIKE JESUS DID
  • WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE THAT STUN THEM (He told me everything I ever did)
  • WORDS OF WISDOM THAT SEES DEEPLY
  • WORDS OF DESTINY THAT PROPHETICALLY SEES THEM FOR WHO THEY WILL BECOME
  • UNSHAKEABLE FAITH FOR MIRACLES
  • DISCERNMENT THAT CALLS GOOD GOOD, AND EVIL EVIL..
  • TAKING DOMINION OVER EVIL IN PEOPLE'S LIVES IN DELIVERANCE
  • HELPING PEOPLE FIND HOPE IN A HOPELESS WORLD
  • INTRODUCING PEOPLE TO THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD THAT CAN DWELL IN THEM.

I"m not critical of the church, I am hopeful we can get back on course. The enemy or reality in the church is religion. Tradition.

Time to get back to the basics of the love of God.. MANIFEST.

One last thing, whenever God has me to prophesy to someone, the end result is the Love of God is so poured out that we end up in a loving embrace that prophetically says "I LOVE YOU"... from the heart of God.

Let's get back to that ..

OF EBOLA, ECONOMY and EPIDEMICS.. There is an Epidemic, an epidemic of FEAR

After a few days of waiting to hear.. I have the Word of the Lord.

Of people's reaction to the Ebola threat in the world today.  Of people's reaction to the state of the Economy, the markets, interest rates, the price of Oil, instability in Europe, the Middle East and Hong Kong.  Threats on every side. Everything seems to be coming apart at the seams.  Fear has become the drumbeat of the day we live in.

The Word of the Lord as given to me is this:

"Peace.  Not as the world gives, but my peace I give to you.  The world has no peace. Even those who are called by My name are living under a needless cloud of fear.  That fear is not of Me.  Faith should rise among the faithful, yet fear seems to prevail.  Unbelief is not the opposite of Faith, Fear is.

Things that are happening because of the multiple threats are revealing those who use fear to sell products, who use fear to gain power, who use fear to influence others, to use fear to create an atmosphere where people stop trusting one another.  Some are in media, some are in business, some are in pulpits, some are on TV, some are politicians.  They all are using trying times to gain advantage and fame.  Do not follow them.  They are deceivers.

The threats are real, but I have given you a gift of boldness - not a spirit of fear, but one of a sound mind, one that can discern the times and seasons when others fear.  When the wind blows those who are not rooted in ME are stripped from the vine that (ME) and is blown with the wind like a falling leaf in autumn.  Unstable.  Incapable of making sound decisions.  They no longer have My mind; One that I freely give.

I will provide supernatural wisdom in this day to those who have ears to hear.  I will take those who I have placed in authority and cause them to act in ways beyond their human understanding.  Even those who appear to be least qualified will be used of Me to accomplish My purposes.

Light is exposing the deceivers - tools of the enemy.  Those who would kill your body and soul are being shown for what they are.   Their desire is to see you shamed and torn down.  They have created fear, anger, outrage, division, When you see them it becomes apparent that they have been used of the enemy; mark those well who cause division.  They are become the enemy's tool chest.  They are not to be trusted,  Not to be followed.  Look for more light.  Look for those who speak peace, justice and victory, for that is the sound of your Shepherd in this hour..  Learn MY voice and follow ME.

Fearful things that cause men to tremble is not a surprise. I told you in My word that in days to come there would be things that would cause men's hearts to fail for fear.  That spirit is not what I destined for my called ones.  A failing heart has no effect in a dying world.  Stop the fear.  Be BOLD, Be Strong, for I, the Lord God am MIGHTY and will tear down anything that rises against my name.

I told you that the year to come would be a year of turning. 2015, A year when things that seemed like there was no hope would become hopeful.  The past is past, there is now a new day of Grace and Victory.

The economy that seems so fearful will find new strength, it will build back on a more solid foundation. There will be renewed vigor.  The world will be surprised by what seems to be a turn around.  Even the energy being produced has created a new human potential.  I led those who know my name to find hidden riches in secret places.  They did and it will cause you to find more peace.

I am moving among those facing the end in the middle east.  There is no hope in Islam.  That demon has been exposed.  Men and women who were at one time passive about that dead religion are finding new life in ME.  By the tens of thousands.  Every day. The blood shed by the martyrs has become a demonstration, a witness of true life and hope to those who formerly disregarded Me . They had the power to become MY witnesses - Martyrs.  Springing up as it were from the earth soiled with their blood,  new faith, new life is being poured out.  While what looks like death, destruction and horror, I am not confused.  I will turn this for good.  I will call men to me, but many will come when the fear of the end is imminent.  Some of those most opposed, the most violent persecutors will come face to face with ME, the True and Living God.  They will become like my servant Paul.. chief among sinners but the most passionate of his day.  That zeal is still there... unturned but ready.

The people who have been opponents of the gospel, those who have tried to tear down righteousness, those who have called evil good will be faced with a new reality.  There is a cry rising from my faithful ones.  I hear it from the throne, HOW LONG?   I will not always contend with evil men, there will come a time when my justice will prevail.  My Kingdom is not of this earth, but is in the hearts of men.. and it will expand..  Justice is making just.

Even among leaders who have been misled by godless men to direct you in ways not worthy will soon discover the error of their way.  Even the President of the USA will bow the knee, like the prodigal, come to his senses and become what I destined him to be.  I had to let these people run away into darkness so when they return the joy when they do would be great.  Do not be the older brother in that day, give thanks for the return of the lost sheep.

I am your Father.  I only have good for you.  Fear not.  Be aware. Act in accord with my word.  Trust ME alone.  In due season if you faint not under the fear, you will reap a great harvest.

The days to come may look dark in the natural, but look up .. for that is where your hope comes from.  There is no other hope except in ME.  I will deliver you from the epidemic of fear.. it is never of ME."
My reaction is the cry of David: Psalm 39
 “I will watch my ways
    and keep my tongue from sin;
I will put a muzzle on my mouth
    while in the presence of the wicked.”
So I remained utterly silent,
    not even saying anything good.
But my anguish increased;
    my heart grew hot within me.
While I meditated, the fire burned;
    then I spoke with my tongue:
“Show me, Lord, my life’s end
    and the number of my days;
    let me know how fleeting my life is.
You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
    the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath,
    even those who seem secure.[b]
“Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom;
    in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth
    without knowing whose it will finally be.
“But now, Lord, what do I look for?
    My hope is in you.
Save me from all my transgressions;
    do not make me the scorn of fools.
I was silent; I would not open my mouth,
    for you are the one who has done this.



I bow my knee to the True and Living God, Creator of all heaven and earth.  Master of the Universe and say aloud:
Psalm 73:25-28 Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.…Those who are far from you will perish;  you destroy all who are unfaithful to you. But as for me, it is good to be near God.     I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge;   I will tell of all your deeds.

FEAR IS NOT REAL IT IS THE PRODUCT OF THE THOUGHTS YOU CREATE. THE DANGER IS VERY REAL, BUT FEAR IS A CHOICE.

"the Children of Disobedience" . . . Robert Blackburn

There is a spirit at work. And that spirit, is working in some people, he ought to not be working through. I'm not saying they are possessed; but the enemy is using them, to cause harm to the body of Christ. Most people knew these times would come. I'm about the age of what we like to call, the baby boomers; born during or right after a big war. Our parents, date back to the early part of the twentieth century, and our grandparents, before that. In other words, our family was here when the Holy Ghost was first poured out in a great manner in this country.

The Spirit, often used even unlearned and uneducated men and women, to teach the people, what He had taught them. All Christian churches, knew and taught, much more than they do today; they knew much more than has been passed down in some circles. All church folk, knew about the end times; would it not make sense, that the Spirit would teach them about it. It's not a secret, that many people, think certain scriptures are not talking about them and their group. It doesn't seem to matter, that the apostles warned of things that would arise; not just in the world, but in the church. They wrote about such things as, a falling away; many being led astray, many being deceived and many becoming cold and indifferent. They were not talking to the world; they were talking to us. We couldn't see that.

When you talk about people's conscience being seared, many who are lovers of themselves, those who are lukewarm, those who claim to have godliness but deny the full power of it, those having itching ears and those who have left their first love, you're not talking about people who never had anything to start with. You're talking about people who once had something but no longer have it now. An unsaved person, never had the mind of Christ, they never were reborn and the lusts of their flesh and mind, has never been changed. This is about people, who know better; or they once did. Those who once sought to follow the Spirit, but don't anymore.

Rebellion, is as the sin of witchcraft. Meaning, it sets off all kinds of real demons, and allows them to operate freely. Fighting against the Spirit, has had dire consequences; assuming authority that is not really yours, has opened a door, that should have remained closed. At first, many who are having a form of church, knew better, and some even know better now. It is their desire for glory, for wealth, power and control, that has blinded them to what is happening right under their very noses. And for a long time now, the enemy has been operating in their very midst; using people who truly appear to be, something they are not, and likely never have been.

This enemy, is called, the prince of the power of the air. Paul said, all of us were once the children of disobedience; but, we were supposed to be born again, and changed. Some, never had the goods to begin with. Others, have let old desires and the old man, surface once more. God gave us a choice. We might always go back to being who we were before; especially if we stop seeking and following the Spirit; always renewing Him, in us. How do I say, that the devil, thrives and grows, on a lukewarm church. He did everything he could, to stop the full power of the Spirit from operating among us; and he used some of our very own people to do it. Many of our people, remain disobedient to what the voice of the Spirit, is really saying to the Church. We have to actually resist the devil; in order for him to flee.

Decaf Prophets


Churches LOVE the prophetic as long as it is served up to them DeCaf, Lukewarm and in small portions. I think about some who call themselves prophet yet have no fire, no heat, no power and who are happy to just be in submission to a constraining venue in order to maintain a platform that is actually unused. Nothing is happening but they are serving what the leaders desire.

This is not as it should be. Prophets should be crying out, decrying evil, encouraging good, correcting error, painting pictures of God's work in the world, declaring destiny (that goes both ways), preparing the way for the days to come, identifying and carrying out judgement against evil in the earth.
I don't see that much. I see a low calorie decaf insipid drip drip drip style of prophecy. Nothing changes, people are left in their deception and ignorance without any challenge or change.

Prophets: CRY ALOUD and SPARE NOT!! or sit down.
