Joshua 6: 17-19
17 The city and all that is in it are to be devoted to the Lord. Only Rahab the prostitute and all who are with her in her house shall be spared, because she hid the spies we sent. 18 But keep away from the devoted things, so that you will not bring about your own destruction by taking any of them. Otherwise you will make the camp of Israel liable to destruction and bring trouble on it. 19 All the silver and gold and the articles of bronze and iron are sacred to the Lord and must go into his treasury.”
7 But the Israelites were unfaithful in regard to the devoted things; Achan son of Karmi, the son of Zimri, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took some of them. So the Lord’s anger burned against Israel.
2 Now Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is near Beth Aven to the east of Bethel, and told them, “Go up and spy out the region.” So the men went up and spied out Ai.3 When they returned to Joshua, they said, “Not all the army will have to go up against Ai. Send two or three thousand men to take it and do not weary the whole army, for only a few people live there.” 4 So about three thousand went up; but they were routed by the men of Ai, 5 who killed about thirty-six of them. They chased the Israelites from the city gate as far as the stone quarries and struck them down on the slopes. At this the hearts of the people melted in fear and became like water.
6 Then Joshua tore his clothes and fell facedown to the ground before the ark of the Lord, remaining there till evening. The elders of Israel did the same, and sprinkled dust on their heads. 7 And Joshua said, “Alas, Sovereign Lord, why did you ever bring this people across the Jordan to deliver us into the hands of the Amorites to destroy us? If only we had been content to stay on the other side of the Jordan! 8 Pardon your servant, Lord. What can I say, now that Israel has been routed by its enemies? 9 The Canaanites and the other people of the country will hear about this and they will surround us and wipe out our name from the earth. What then will you do for your own great name?”
10 The Lord said to Joshua, “Stand up! What are you doing down on your face? 11 Israel has sinned; they have violated my covenant, which I commanded them to keep. They have taken some of the devoted things; they have stolen, they have lied, they have put them with their own possessions. 12 That is why the Israelites cannot stand against their enemies; they turn their backs and run because they have been made liable to destruction. I will not be with you anymore unless you destroy whatever among you is devoted to destruction.13 “Go, consecrate the people. Tell them, ‘Consecrate yourselves in preparation for tomorrow; for this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: There are devoted things among you, Israel. You cannot stand against your enemies until you remove them.
In the first six months of 2013 many have crossed over into the land ordained and promised by the Sovereign Father for their lives. Still there are many others, who are on the very threshold to crossing over but still have not made the necessary preparations as previously instructed by the Lord. As we prepare to enter into the seventh month of this year, now is the time to go back and do a spot check to check for any hidden area that has not yet been surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Prayer of Salvation
I repent of all of my sins and right now I do confess that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for the remission of my sins. I believe that Jesus died and was buried and rose again, and is now seated at the right hand of God in Heaven. I receive Him now as Lord of my life and I now commit to serve him for the rest of my days.
It is in Jesus’ name I do pray, Amen.
In this season of transition, staying connected to those who I have divinely connected you to is of great kingdom importance. Diverting from my plans and seeking to connect to those whom I have not called you to for this time will not only delay and affect you personally, but it will also bring harm to those whom you are corporately connected to as well. Although an established time of rest from your enemies is quickly approaching, adhering to and following my divine directives to the letter is imperative if you desire to continue to walk in my favor during this set time.
All is well my child be not discouraged; do not be dismayed as I continue reveal to you those who do not have my heart as it relates to my will for you. Know that what I reveal by my Spirit is to strengthen and fortify your faith in me. Remember, nothing is hidden from my watchful eye, for I have watched over you through out this whole process and I know how things will work out for your good. Continue to trust in me with your whole heart and place not your confidence in the things of the flesh.
