Decree of the Lord

By Tiffany Bretana 

The Lord had me meditating on, When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. Isaiah 59:19

A standard is defined as something considered by an authority or by general consent as a basis of comparison. 

The Lord has decreed where the enemy has come in as a flood of: 

Discouragement, He shall raise a standard of encouragement

Sickness, He shall raise up a standard of healing and wholeness

Poverty, He shall raise a standard of abundance 

Oppression, He shall raise a standard of freedom 

Accusation, He shall raise a standard of vindication

That which has been stolen, He shall raise a standard of restoration

Deception, He shall raise a standard of truth

Fear, He shall raise a standard of faith 

Be done according to Your Word, Lord! Amen 

Isaiah 59:15-19 So truth fails, And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him That there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, And wondered that there was no intercessor; Therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; And His own righteousness, it sustained Him. For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, And a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, And was clad with zeal as a cloak. According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, Fury to His adversaries, Recompense to His enemies; The coastlands He will fully repay. So shall they fear The name of the Lord from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. 

The Army of the LORD

by Eliza van der Merwe & Tiffany Bretana

This is what the Father is saying today.

I hear the breathing of the army of the Lord, exactly the same as their Commander. They’re so much in tune with Him and what He is thinking that He doesn’t need to say anything. Just by them looking at Him, they know how to move forward and fight the good fight of faith.

Their focus is only on Him. They’re not even worried by the war raging around them because they know when to move and when to act.

What a beautiful sight! As far as eye can see, there is warriors dressed in the full armour. All according to their own positions, they are called into the battle of the last days.

They are not intimidated by each other. They know who they are in Christ Jesus! Each armor piece was just made for them and the function they carried out in the war.

As the sound comes forward from their mouths echoing through the air a creed for war could be heard a far off, the enemy of their souls was pushed back!

This beautiful warrior army is the Bride of Christ, cunning as a snake yet gentle as a dove.

They followed only the instructions from the Lord!

They know His voice!

They aren’t threatened by the assaults of the enemy, because they know The Lord Jesus overcome all this on the CROSS OF CALVARY!

The Lord has called forth His Bride, as terrible as an army with banners. His banner over us is LOVE. He has spoken to His prophets to speak life and hope into their dry bones. They shall arise as an exceedingly great army.

Song of Solomon 2:4 “He has brought me to his banqueting place, And his banner over me is love waving overhead to protect and comfort me.

Song of Solomon 6:10 ‘Who is this that looks down like the dawn, Fair and beautiful as the full moon, Clear and pure as the sun, As majestic as an army with banners?’

Ezekiel 37:7-14 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a thundering noise, and behold, a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And I looked, and behold, there were sinews on the bones, and flesh grew and skin covered them; but there was no breath in them. Then He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”’” So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood up on their feet, an exceedingly great army. Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, they say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is lost. We are completely cut off.’ Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will open your graves and make you come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you back home to the land of Israel. Then you will know with confidence that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves and made you come up out of your graves, My people. I will put My Spirit in you and you will come to life, and I will place you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and fulfilled it,” says the Lord.’”

Hebrews 6:17-20 In the same way God, in His desire to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable nature of His purpose, intervened and guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things His promise and His oath in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to Him for refuge would have strong encouragement and indwelling strength to hold tightly to the hope set before us. This hope this confident assurance we have as an anchor of the soul it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whatever pressure bears upon it—a safe and steadfast hope that enters within the veil of the heavenly temple, that most Holy Place in which the very presence of God dwells, where Jesus has entered in advance as a forerunner for us, having become a High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.*emphasis added




Seek the TRUTH!!!

By Eliza van der Merwe

This is what the Father is saying today.

I am always with you beloved. Never doubt My Presence in your life. I am leading you continuously forward day by day as you draw closer to Me!

I love your devotion towards Me. Keep seeking, knocking, asking for more of Me. You will not be disappointed! Will I not answer in measures that will bless you abundantly.

I will come and meet with you revealing all you are asking for and so much more. I delight in the more than the enough part of it all.

I love surprising you in unexpected ways. Yes I am always aware of everything and know your willingness to come and experience My presence.

Every day is a new opportunity to draw even closer to Me. Make use of it. Come child, come and know your expectations today will not be disappointed!

I love you My Child. I love to tell you it over and over.

I will not give you a stone when you ask Me for bread.

Matt 7:9
You parents–if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead?


Only desire to partake and be feed with the truth of the bread of life. Truth is what sets you free. Truth is the key to unlock chains of lies binding you.

Truth is the freedom you are seeking for. Seek truth and you shall be free from those lying voices drawing you into the darkness.





By Tiffany Bretana 

My God, how great art Thou, 

To You alone do I bow!, 

When my persecutors came against me, 

The way out I could not see, 

You were My Defense & Shield, 

The double edged sword did You wield, 

I went low, 

Even when the process seemed slow, 

Forgive, release, & bless, 

Sometimes was the rest and test,

Even when there was no indicators, 

Oh God, You are my VINDICATOR! 

Glory to God!  I thank You & praise You God! 

The time has come & is even Now!!! 
That which you have been standing and believing God to show up and show out for, VINDICATION is here!!! Those things that seemed to be lost, shall be found!!!  God is no respecter of persons!!! 


by Eliza van der Merwe

Valley of Dry Bones

By Eliza van der Merwe

This is what the Father is saying today.

Let Me breath upon those dry bone situations in your life! If it looks impossible to you, know that it’s possible for Me!

Speak life to everything that is dead in your life knowing that LIFE WILL COME AND MEET WITH YOU TODAY!

Abundant life is your portion! Everything in your life is subject to My word!

Today declare and decree life over those dead lifeless situations and see how before your very eyes life will sprung forth in ways you could only have dreamed of!


Every situation that you tolerate in your life that death is present, is not bringing glory to whom I am in your life!

Therefore let this day be a TURNAROUND time for you!

Stand up and exercise your authority I have given to you over these situations. Believe and know that I am faithful!

I delight in the prosperity of you, My people. Take heart today and let hope arise on the inside of you! Yes let HOPE rise up in you!!

Can you hear the gambling in the valley where there’s only dead bone in your life?

Call those those things be not as if they already exist!

Start praising Me in advance and see what I will bring to pass for you!

Begin by believing, declaring My life and see how it will begin to happen before your very eyes this day!

Declare! Declare! Declare!

Job 22:28
“You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; And light will shine on your ways.

Ezekiel 37:5
Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live

This is what the Father is saying today. 

The Kingdom is demonstrated every time you choose to pray for someone, lay hands for healing, deliverance, restoration, and provision has taken place. 

My Kingdom is a demonstration force that cannot be stop. There is no shortage in My Kingdom. I am a more than enough God. I give freely. 

Ask and you will receive! Jesus is the example I sent to Earth for you to know My Perfect plan and will for you My beloved. 

He came to demonstrate it to you! Follow the examples He set for you! Be about My Business! Do what you see Me do! I am always at work and working ! 

Can you perceive it even now? 

Yes I am a now God! 


Believe it and go out demonstrating it where you find yourself today! 

Matthew 6:9–13 (ESV) 

“Pray then like this: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.'”

1 Corinthians 4:20 (NIV)

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.

Turn Up the Volume of My Voice!

by Eliza van der Merwe 

This is what the Father is saying today. 

My beloved there’s so many voices trying to get your focus off of what I am speaking to you in this season. Doubt, fear, and so much more. The one trying harder than the other to talk louder than the other. 

Today My Beloved pay them no attention! They are just voices trying to get to you. Instead of listening to them turn your attention to My Voice! 

Listen to the My still small voice speaking today. Hope is speaking! Deliverance is speaking! Love is speaking! Grace! Provision! Breakthrough!

Can you hear Me speaking to you? 

Make a decision to listen. Quiet yourself down. Turn off all that distraction. Come sit with Me listening to the voice of Mercy.

Turn the volume up of My Voice but muting all those voices that profits nothing. They are attention seekers. Doubt bringers. Strife stirrers.


John 8:47 – He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear [them] not, because ye are not of God.

Mark 4:24 – And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.

Job 33:14-15 – For God speaketh once, yea twice, [yet man] perceiveth it not.

John 10:27-28 – My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.

Sufficient Grace

By Eliza van der Merwe 

This is what the Father is saying today. 

Grace …
This is a day of grace. My grace is sufficient for you! Never doubt that what I am saying to you isn’t true. 

Who is Grace?
Grace is a Person called Jesus! 

What is Grace?
Grace overcomes all situations you may ever find yourself in, on the Cross!

The voice of Grace is always speaking. He is seated on My right hand making intercession on behalf of you My beloved. 

He is speaking even if you can’t hear Him.

Grace, My Grace is indeed sufficient for you. Believe and receive it now.

2 Corinthians 12:9 

And he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest on me.

John 1:16-17

16And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 

17For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

The Gates Are Melting

By Tiffany Bretana 

I saw this like big gridiron gate, and they just started melting or disappearing away until it was gone. And I hear the Father saying, what seems to blocking you, will disappear. I am able to open doors that no man can open. See the hindrances and obstructions melting before you. When the world says no, it’s My Yes that stands! It is My good pleasure says the Father, to make the impossible possible for My children, who are called by My Name.  

And I just sense the Father will use your testimony for others to see and say, look what God has done for her/him!!! 

Don’t fret mockers! But keep your peace, and when they comeback at a later time, you will be able to say, let me tell you about My God.
