About Sandra Bedford Ministries & New Reign Covenant
God asked Moses, "What is that that you have in your hand?" What a pointed question! Did God not know the answer to the question He asked Moses? YES, HE KNEW, AND HE KNOWS THE ANSWER TO EVERY QUESTION IN OUR LIVES!
What was taking place here that caused God to ask Moses that question? First of all, let us examine the subject of focus--"the hand." The word "hand" in the Hebrew is (yad), pronounced [yawd], a prime root word, meaning, a hand (the open one) [indicating power, means, direction, etc].

OVERVIEW OF THE PROPHETIC ANOINTING
This book is designed to give the student an overview of what the prophetic anointing is and how we function in that anointing. We will examine how prophets hear with the ear of understanding, see with eyes of the Spirit, speak with the voice of the anointing, and walk with the manifestation of God’s authority. There is also the need for all who embrace the Kingdom of God and the King, the LORD Jesus, to understand the prophetic anointing.
The ear of understanding is the spirit more than it is the physical ear. Although the prophetic word is reverberated in the physical ear, it is the spirit man that perceives the voice of The LORD. Example : I Samuel 3:1-8
The seeing eye is the Spirit-enacted vision which allows one to see in the spirit realm, beyond physical capabilities. It is a function that precedes the ability to declare. Example: Isaiah 6:1
The voice of the anointing affects and accomplishes a definite task.
Example: Isaiah 55:11 & Matthew 21:18-19
The walk of manifestation is realized as the spirit man is the dominant
or prevailing “man.”
Prophets are not the only persons able to experience the prophetic. The prophetic is a divine move of God’s Spirit. Much is being said today about the prophetic move of God. Therefore, much of the mystique concerning the prophetic must be removed to include the faith community. We can be consciously made alert concerning the Sovereign move of God’s Spirit prophetically upon the earth.
Simply put, we are in a place with God whereby we are about to see the
fulfillment of all things written by the Hand of God. There is a place in God whereby vision and prophecy will be finished. (See Daniel 9:24-26)
WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT!
(January 4, 2015)
"Lift up your heads you gates,and be lifted up, you age abiding doors, and The King of Glory shall come in! Who is The King of Glory? The LORD Who is strong and mighty, The LORD Who Is mighty in battle. He is THE KING OF GLORY!"
What does it mean to be "age abiding"? Could it be that there are some things in this life that are unchangeable, fixed, immoveable? Then, let us say that to be age-abiding carries with it the ability to be fixed because of the weight or attachment to the Person Christ Jesus. So we know that all things work together for good........, therefore, beloved of The LORD, "be stedfast, immoveable, always abounding in the work of the LORD." And that "work" is simply to believe on the One whom Our Father God has sent--The LORD, Jesus Christ.
To be age-abiding means that we are connected to the eternal realm. That connection comes through our believing on the work that Christ Jesus wrought for us on the cross. In Ephesians 2: 1-7 we discover this truth:
1"And you [He made alive], when you were dead (slain) by [your] trespasses and sins
2 In which at one time you walked [habitually]. You were following the course and fashion of this world [were under the sway of the tendency of this present age], following the prince of the power of the air. [You were obedient to and under the control of] the [demon] spirit that still constantly works in the sons of disobedience [the careless, the rebellious, and the unbelieving, who go against the purposes of God].
3 Among these we as well as you once lived and conducted ourselves in the passions of our flesh [our behavior governed by our corrupt and sensual nature], obeying the impulses of the flesh and the thoughts of the mind [our cravings dictated by our senses and our dark imaginings]. We were then by nature children of [God’s] wrath and heirs of [His] indignation, like the rest of mankind.
4 But God—so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and intense love with which He loved us,
5 Even when we were dead (slain) by [our own] shortcomings and trespasses, He made us alive together in fellowship and in union with Christ; [He gave us the very life of Christ Himself, the same new life with which He quickened Him, for] it is by grace (His favor and mercy which you did not deserve) that you are saved ([a]delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation).
6 And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us [b]joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
7 He did this that He might clearly demonstrate through the ages to come the immeasurable (limitless, surpassing) riches of His free grace (His unmerited favor) in [His] kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus."
So we, in Christ Jesus, attain being ageless or age-abiding. Let us delve a little deeper to reveal greater truth. In the 10th Chapter of John, The Word Himself testifies, "I AM THE DOOR"!
7 "So Jesus said again, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that I Myself am the Door [a]for the sheep.
8 All others who came [as such] before Me are thieves and robbers, but the [true] sheep did not listen to and obey them.
9 I am the Door; anyone who enters in through Me will be saved (will live). He will come in and he will go out [freely], and will find pasture.
As we fulfill our God-given assignment to be witnesses, bearing truth, vessels of hope and age-abiding doors in the earth, revealing heavenly reality and His light, we are to lead many to right standing with The LORD Jesus and The Father.
A WORD FROM THE PROPHETIC COMMUNITY!
KINGDOM NATION REVELATION
(by the Spirit to Prophetess Sandra)
When we say "kingdom", we must first qualify the necessity of a ruler or one who is in authority to act as supreme. In the case of The Kingdom of God and Heaven, we have the ONE in complete authority. In no other realm of authority do we encounter the state of such absolute powerful mastery. There are no other powers or kingdoms that can compete or that are more powerful than The Kingdom of the Father God, and Our LORD Jesus Christ.
As we now experience the colliding of three different kingdoms--the kingdom of man, the kingdom of satan and The Kingdom of God and Heaven, we must be more FIRM, PURPOSEFUL, PERSEVERING, SINGLE-MINDED, AND RESOLUTE in what we believe and what we speak. In Psalm 107:2, we are commanded to speak a redemptive and clear message. The message is revealed by the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of THE KING, CHRIST JESUS. In Ephesians 1:17-23 the Spirit, by "revelation" to Paul the Apostle, declares,"17 [I always pray] that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may grant you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation [that gives you a deep and personal and intimate insight] into the true knowledge of Him [for we know the Father through the Son]. 18 And [I pray] that the eyes of your heart [the very center and core of your being] may be enlightened [flooded with light by the Holy Spirit], so that you will know and cherish the [f]hope [the divine guarantee, the confident expectation] to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the [g]saints (God’s people), 19 and [so that you will begin to know] what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His [active, spiritual] power is in us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of His mighty strength 20 which He [h]produced in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion [whether angelic or human], and [far above] every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and world but also in the one to come. 22 And He put all things [in every realm] in subjection under Christ’s feet, and appointed Him as [supreme and authoritative] head over all things in the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills and completes all things in all [believers]." We, the citizens of THE KINGDOM OF GOD/HEAVEN must not only speak but act in accordance with the message of THE KING!
On a more grand and eventful scale, marking the end of the age, we must understand our individual and corporate roles in FORCEFULLY ADVANCING the ORDER of THE KINGDOM OF GOD/HEAVEN. "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force." (Matthew 11:12) It is the violent that "know their God, and are strong and do exploits"; (Daniel 11:32b) those that by reason of their knowing are radical and determined enough in their conviction to meet head on the opposition in the Spirit of Christ.
With the aid of our Helper, The Divine Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, we are to draw from Him all that He gives us in "revelation", endowing us with The Spirit of the LORD, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD. The eagle-eyed prophet, Isaiah declares, in Isaiah 11:1-16, the Righteous Reign of the Branch. "Then a Shoot (the Messiah) will spring from the stock of Jesse [David’s father], And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him— The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and strength, The Spirit of knowledge and of the [reverential and obedient] fear of the Lord— And He will delight in the fear of the Lord, And He will not judge by what His eyes see, Nor make decisions by what His ears hear; But with ighteousness and justice He will judge the poor, And decide with fairness for the downtrodden of the earth; And He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked. And righteousness will be the belt around His loins, And faithfulness the belt around His waist. And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, And the leopard will lie down with the young goat, And the calf and the young lion and the fatted steer together; And a little child will lead them. And the cow and the bear will graze [together], Their young will lie down together, And the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the nursing child will [safely] play over the hole of the cobra, And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den [and not be hurt]. They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain, For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord. As the waters cover the sea. Then in that day the nations will make supplications to the Root of Jesse Who will stand as a signal for the peoples; And His resting place will be glorious."
The Restored Remnant
"Then it will happen on that day that the Lord will again acquire with His hand a second time The remnant of His people, who will remain, from Assyria, from [Lower] Egypt, from Pathros, from Cush (Ethiopia), from Elam [in Persia], from Shinar [Babylonia], from Hamath [in Aram], And from the coastlands bordering the [Mediterranean] Sea. And He will lift up a signal for the nations And assemble the [a]outcasts of Israel, And will gather the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth. Then the jealousy of Ephraim will depart, And those who harass [c]Judah will be cut off; Ephraim will not be jealous of Judah, And Judah will not harass Ephraim. Ephraim and Judah will [unite and] swoop down on the slopes of the Philistines toward the west; Together they will plunder the sons (Arabs) of the east. They will possess Edom and Moab, And the sons of Ammon will be subject to them. And the Lord will utterly destroy the tongue of the [d]Sea of Egypt; And with His scorching wind He will wave His hand over the River; He will strike and divide it into seven channels And make [it possible for] people [to] walk over in sandals. And there will be a highway from Assyria For the remnant of His people who will be left, Just as there was for Israel In the day when they came up out of the land of Egypt."
In the "revelation" of what we receive from The Spirit of The LORD, and the Person and weight of supreme power and Delegated Authority, THE KING, CHRIST JESUS, my sincere prayer for all the saints is, (Ephesians 3:16-21), 16"May He grant you out of the riches of His glory, to be strengthened and spiritually energized with power through His Spirit in your inner self, [indwelling your innermost being and personality], 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through your faith. And may you, having been [deeply] rooted and [securely] grounded in love, 18 be fully capable of comprehending with all the saints (God’s people) the width and length and height and depth of His love [fully experiencing that amazing, endless love]; 19 and [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God’s presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself]. 20 Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us, 21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen."
PRAYERFULLY WE ALL, BY THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND REVELATION IN THE EXPRESS KNOWLEDGE OF THE KING, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, WALK IN TRUE "KINGDOM NATION REVELATION"!
