How Do I Find Peace, Direction, and Hope in an Uncertain World?

October 15, 2021, Rabbi Curt Landry shared how we can find peace, direction, and hope in an uncertain world…

Join us as we explore the transcript of this powerful message that will help prepare you between now and Passover 5782/2022!

How Do I Find Peace, Direction, and Hope in an Uncertain World?

Rabbi Curt Landry (October 15, 2021)

One of the things I want to share with you is… the Lord has given me a very clear word about the prophetic word that came during Sukkot. Really, that whole Fall Feast season—Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot—was a prophetic time. And one of the words that came on Sukkot was the ‘four rivers.’ So I am going to break down the ‘four rivers…’

And the key is not to get in the river, the key is to stay and finish in the river! Amen!?

So we are going to talk about that in a very practical sense. The Lord is going to give you the path, the tools, and the anointing to be able to flow in that fourth river of ‘what has not been seen before!’

I want you to believe for an impartation for a change of character and behavior. 

I want you to believe that there is an anointing that breaks the yoke! 

If you’ve ever studied about people who become millionaires and multi-millionaires, one of the consistent things you hear them say is… ‘The first million was the hardest, but after that it got easier.’ And then people say things like, ‘Well, it’s because they are associated and networking with other millionaires, so they are on insider trading and get all the good deals.’ That could be true, but not really.

The reason the second, third, and tenth million is easier is because of the character they’ve learned in getting the first million. You need to understand that millionaires have different habits and patterns and character than non-millionaires. That is a fact. But it is the same thing in the spirit!

If you look at spiritual people who actually walk in the supernatural favor, power, and authority of God on earth and in the Courts of Heaven, what happens is… yes, that first ‘million’ is difficult, but after that it gets easier. Why? Because they have adjusted their lifestyle to develop a character that actually attracts the supernatural favor of God. Amen!?

So God is going to spell it out and give you the steps to be a spiritual millionaire in the sense that you will learn the habits and patterns of what it takes to stay in that river of ‘what has not been seen before.’ To enter, stay, prosper and hear, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.’

So, how do we find peace, and direction, and hope in an uncertain world?

If you’ve listened to my Trending Tuesday [October 11, 2021] message, I was talking about adapting to the unpredictable. 

Everyone wants to go back to normal and that is not going to happen… everyone is saying, ‘Oh, it is so different.’ It’s not different—things are never the same—things are always progressing. And if you are going to live successfully in the spirit, what you have to do is adjust your foundation based on the atmosphere of things that are coming.

I had posted on my personal page footage of a volcano erupting. And as I was looking at it—it’s beautiful, it’s erupting and flowing into the ocean—the Lord said, ‘That, spiritually, is what’s happening right now in the world. I am erupting from within.’ 

What causes an eruption to occur is that, after a while, because of the shifting of the plates and the friction it causes, there’s so much internal pressure building up that an eruption has to take place to relieve the pressure. And that is what’s happening in the spirit realm right now! There’s friction and disunity among the tribes and the people all over the world. Now there’s an eruption of fire—which is judgment. So, while that is happening, you need to understand what you must do while this lava or fire is erupting from within.

When the lava flows—when God is intervening in the universe and intervening with man—then what happens is you have to go to a high place with the Lord and wait for the lava to cool.

But people are trying to mold the lava, and you cannot do that!

Will that lava eventually cool? Yes. And eventually—through storms and time—that area will become sand and multi-billion-dollar beach property. But until it cools off, you might as well leave your umbrella in the garage and quit prophesying that you are going to be in ‘Margaritaville,’ sitting on the sandy beach next week, because this lava is not stopping for a while. This is the season that we are in. So the question is this, ‘How do I prosper during this season?’

The Four Rivers

I want to break this down…

What happened from Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot—in the spirit—is that there were four rivers released from the Throne Room of Heaven. And just like in the book of Revelation, where we see the different churches, these are the ‘four rivers…’ 

  1. The River of ‘What Was’
    • This group is spiritual; they are born-again, their name is in the Book, and they are going to Heaven. But their mindset—meaning what they set their eyes on and what they focus on—will be ‘what was.’ 
    • And if you listen to their messages, you can hear it, because they are wanting to go back to what was. I am not judging anyone, but in the Spirit I saw that a lot of people want to go back and open up the ancient wells. But when the focus is on the past—in what was—it is difficult… You cannot drive a car by looking in the rearview mirror without running into something in front of you.
  1. The River of ‘What Is’
    • This is the ‘Church of the Reaction.’ They are not too interested in what was. They are not wanting prophets coming in telling them about the future. They are really just reactionary
    • They want to know things like, ‘What is the latest, greatest? How do I fill up my church? How do I survive?’ Everything is very reactional, very sudden, and very chaotic because it is focused on the present.
  1. The River of ‘What Is to Come’
    • This is the group that is always prophesying of what is coming. They actually take all their habits and patterns, time, tasks, and activity business plans based off of the future. 
    • The problem that I have with that, as a businessman, is that when you are constantly facilitating your strategy off of the future, you don’t deal with what is right at your feet. 
  1. The River of ‘What Has Not Been Seen Before’

Now, all four of these rivers are going to manifest. But I will say, that as for me and our house—House of David, Curt Landry Ministries, My Olive Tree, One New Man United, everything under our covering—we are immersing into ‘What Has Not Been Seen Before.’ And I am going to give you the biblical reason why…

The way I see it, scripturally, is we have been redeemed from ‘what was…’ And I know that we have been redeemed from ‘what is…’ And we have actually been redeemed from the judgment of ‘what is to come…’ 

So if we are the redeemed and we are to say so, how do we preach ‘what was,’ ‘what is,’ and ‘what is to come?’ How do we make that our focus and get people to have anticipation in their mind, and their focus off of something that we have been redeemed from? 

I think we have no choice but to have our mindset and focus on ‘what has not been seen before!’

Curt Landry's notes on how to find hope in an uncertain world.

So, if you are choosing to get into ‘what has not been seen before,’ then you will have to focus 100% on the Lord! 

And, you will have to concentrate on your CHARACTER; getting your character to a level that will respond to that 100% focus. If you don’t, you are going to have problems… Because all four of these rivers will have different weather patterns… 

For instance, there will be times of beautiful revival—bright, and sunny—in the river of ‘what was…’ But in the river of ‘what has not been seen before,’ you are in a drought in the spirit—between the wells of salvation in the desert. You are getting pressure from your friends in the river of ‘what was,’ going to the revival and sending facetime calls to you about how wonderful the revival is… Yet, you are going through the desert because this is where the Lord has called you… 

When this happens, you are not only going to have to have the character of Galatians 5:22-23, but you are going to have to think for yourself! You are going to have to make a choice to THINK FOR YOURSELF, that no matter what you have chosen, you actually STICK TO IT.

You will have to be determined; not swayed by the enemy who will open up temptations… to lure you back into ‘what was,’ ‘what is,’ or ‘what is to come…’ to pull you away from your commitment to ‘what has not been seen before.’ The enemy knows the only one of all the four rivers that can actually hurt him right now is number four. Because that’s where the authority is and that’s where he’s going to attack. I am not saying, ‘Thus says the Lord,’ but I would say the enemy doesn’t have unlimited resources and will probably pull some from the other rivers to attack those in ‘what has not been seen before.’

So the key is, ‘What do we do to prepare for the onslaught of the attack that is trials and tribulations coming for the word that will come out of that fourth river?’

Five Keys to Prepare…

  1. Character [Galatians 5:22-23]
  2. Think For Yourself
  3. Delayed Gratification
  4. Passion
  5. Help Others

1. Character [Galatians 5:22-23]

The protection for the fourth river is Galatians 5:22-23…

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”

—Galatians 5:22-23

Can I say it this way so that you can remember? That fruit (in Galatians 5) has no smell in the spirit. No smell.

What does the Scripture say? Be wise of what? The serpent… 

How does a serpent operate? A serpent camouflages itself. It hides, parks, and smells with its tongue. And where do they park? They park where the mice travel. And how do they know the mice are there when the mice are not there? They smell the urine trail.

And so, what the enemy does—when the Scripture says ‘be wise of the serpent’—the serpent parks itself in the urine trail so he doesn’t have to chase down his lunch. His lunch comes to him. 

It is the same thing in the spirit. If you go to Galatians 5:19-21, it says, ‘…adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries…’ All of these have a smell in the spirit. The serpent smells that, and when he does, he hides himself in your life and waits for that time to strike, because you actually walk right into the trap. That is how it really works in the spirit.

You need to understand that if you’re going to operate 100% in the Lord, you have to stay in the Lord. The boundary of your life’s plan has to be Galatians 5:22-23—that you walk in the Spirit… So that you smell good, or you have no smell at all!

Rabbi Curt Landry preaching during his service.
  1. Think For Yourself

You have to have a character of not only hard work and honesty, telling the truth and actually being an ambassador for Christ… but you also have to THINK FOR YOURSELF! And people who think for themselves, once they make a choice, they stick to it. They make their ‘yes’ be ‘yes.’

  1. Delayed Gratification

You have to be trained for DELAYED GRATIFICATION! When that facetime comes from the ‘what was,’ ‘what is,’ and ‘what is to come,’ they will be showing you their gratification. 

While you are out in the wilderness having your character built for ‘what has not been seen before,’ those in the other rivers are saying, ‘Look at us! We are in full-blown revival… 5,000 people got saved… they are slain in the spirit… we have the best media, music… look, look, look…’ But the thing is, if YOU were called to it, then go jump in it! 

But if you are called to the fourth river, you have to understand that once you jump in, you must be able to be disciplined for delayed gratification! Because mature Believers understand that nothing comes quickly, and nothing comes cheap! If it does, it’s probably a counterfeit. 

  1. Passion

If YOU are jumping into that fourth river, you have to have PASSION FOR THE KINGDOM more than the passion for your own ego and what you want. You have to have passion for what God wants! 

You are in the fourth river to fulfill HIS PURPOSE, not yours! By jumping in and fulfilling His purpose… you are fulfilling your call. 

  1. Help Others

And fifth, YOU HAVE TO HELP OTHERS, because only servants will survive in the ‘what has not been seen before.’ They have a character of ‘never leave anybody behind!’ They have a character of servanthood and servant ministry, where they serve each other. 

These are the characteristics of those in the fourth river… They are not jumping from ‘what was,’ to ‘what is,’ and to ‘what is to come.’ Some in the other rivers will jump from one thing to another, but YOU are going to have to put on the blinders and stay focused on ‘what has not been seen before,’ with clarity of mind so you don’t get tempted with short-term gratification and lose all the hard work and the passion that you’ve built…

But short-term gratification, caring what others think, not thinking for yourself… I can promise you, once you start following the Jewish roots of the faith, the Courts of Heaven, One New Man… everyone in those other rivers will battle you—and a lot of it will be out of love. They will think you’ve lost your mind, because they haven’t learned it and do not understand it. But at the end of the day, we are all ending up in the fourth river as One New Man!

But what we are talking about in this message is the ‘here and now’—5782—when we have the opportunity to get our minds focused on ‘what has not been seen before.’

Jumping In and Staying In

The first thing that we need to understand is that anxiety can be oppressive when the anxious mind dominates. If you want to jump in and stay in the fourth river of ‘what has not been seen before,’ you cannot have an anxious mind. An anxious mind is always moved by fear, and it will always battle against your faith decisions. 

The scripture that I want to give to those who want to jump into the fourth river is Romans 4:21-22, “…being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. And therefore ‘it was accounted to him for righteousness.’” Meaning that, once you jump into the fourth river, you stay in the fourth river, and it will be accounted to you as righteousness.

Are you ready to start activating it… to be empowered to do it?

There are three simple keys to developing clear vision and purpose when opportunity knocks at the door of your life. And I know you may not see it now but, in the spirit, opportunity is knocking at your door to be on the cutting edge of what God is doing in the largest harvest of souls. Because that harvest is going to come out of that fourth river. And the Lord is asking you to join in this river. This is an opportunity!

The scripture foundation for these three keys is out of Isaiah 60:1-2, “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you (emphasis added).

Where is this light? The light is the light in your mind!

Your mind will either be enlightened by the Holy Spirit in the Light of the Lord, or in the darkness of the devil. God is saying, “Arise and shine,” for YOUR light—not His Light—your light (little “L”) has come. God is saying the light of him, the one who arises—makes aliyah—will come to you, and the glory of the Lord will rise upon YOU.

 That is why you need to say right now, “Lord, let that light come!” 

But you need to nurture and fill yourself with that light; to be like the wise virgins, keeping your wick trimmed and your lamp full at all times. 

‘For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth…’ The darkness is the mental oppression that is coming through every media source and the atmosphere.

‘…but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.’ So you need to nurture the glory! You need to understand that the glory in your mind is the key to a sound mind. Because when the darkness comes, then oppression and confusion come.

Where are your opportunities? 

The business of the fourth river is where your opportunities are… for business, for relationships, for ministry… But there are a few things you should know:

  • You need to know where your opportunities are so that you are actually looking in the right direction, and you set up your habits and patterns, your time, tasks, and activities, so that you are in the right place at the right time.
  • You need to take care of your mind. What you look at will eventually go into your mind and that goes into your heart… then you start to speak it, and the process starts to take place.
  • You need to know how to succeed in your new opportunities, because—here is the key: you can get into the river, but if you cannot stay in the river, or if you get a new opportunity and you cannot maintain it, then it is almost better not to have had it at all.

So, where are your opportunities?

  • Where are my opportunities?
  • How do I discover my new opportunities?
  • How do I succeed in my new opportunities?

One of the keys is this: your opportunities are going to be in a wilderness. It is going to be in a desert. When God births things on earth, He always births them in a wilderness and in a desert. When He takes a group of people, who were just a group of people, and turns them into a nation, He purifies them in the desert…

Can I say this? Those in the ‘what was,’ ‘what is,’ and ‘what is to come,’ are going to be in a fruitful valley or on top of a high mountain. YOU are going to the desert. And you are going to look foolish going to the desert. But you must understand that it is somewhat like the millionaire scenario… the first million will be difficult, but the millions after that get easier. You are going to learn in the biblical year 5782, in the desert, the character that is going to make you a multi-spiritual-millionaire for the rest of the era!

This is a year of learning. Transforming. And building the character.

How do you discover the new opportunities? By the Light of His Spirit. You need to learn how to turn on the spiritual Light of the Holy Spirit, go into the Courts of Heaven, get the download from His Books, and be able to speak out that which you need to know.

That is not something one person has more of than another; you are going to have to invest and learn how to do that.

How do I succeed in my new opportunities? Walk as PREY and NOT as a PREDATOR! 

You do not call yourself a Believer and then have predatorial behavior!

So here is the key: your new opportunities are going to come from your obedience to go out into the desert!

You are going to discover your opportunities as you go out into the desert as an honor to the Lord, saying, “Thank you Lord for taking me to the altar of the desert and letting Your Light shine upon me. That the glory of the Lord that comes upon me will allow me to succeed in my new opportunity, because, the fire of His Light will be like a threshing instrument, threshing the predator thoughts, plans, and desires out of my life… so that I start thinking like prey and not predator.” 

It is a process… It is not easy. But you have to choose… you have to ask, ‘am I called into that fourth river?’

A New Thing in the Fourth River

We, as the fourth river of ‘what has not been seen before,’ need to first understand Isaiah 43:18-19, “Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” (emphasis added).

You need to cut the soul ties with ‘what was,’ ‘what is,’ and ‘what is to come.’ 

God says that He is doing a new thing, but the key is, will you know it when it springs forth? You will only know it if the Holy Spirit Light in your mind is turned on, and the darkness is flooded by the Light! If you have a mixture—light and dark—you will choose the darkness because your soul is weak. So you have to purpose to avoid the darkness. 

So where do we find the Lord’s new thing? God says He ‘…will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.’ He is taking us into a spiritual desert to reveal to us the new thing that is going to spring forth!

The Desert

When you are in the desert and it rains and things spring forth, you do not need a microscope to find what is springing forth. 

When it rains in the desert in Israel, it is amazing how, after even only five or six hours, that which was brown and appeared dead no longer looks that way. The grass starts to spring up, the flowers start to bloom… it was always there, but you couldn’t see it until the rain came. 

When the rain comes, it brings the hidden treasures in hidden places. And the Lord wants to put you in a mental situation where you are not afraid to walk through a desert with no water and no provision, knowing that, at the right time, He will send the rain, He will send the glory, and He will send the provision!


Because you are walking in that place that has not been seen before!

God takes His people out far out into the desert with nothing. They come out in obedience, trusting in Him, and He sends the rain… and they find the treasure!

Why does God do that?

To keep the treasure away from the mixture in the other rivers… He knows that mixture would soil and corrupt the treasure. They did not pay the price for the character it takes to manage God’s glory. The REAL glory.

Rabbi Curt Landry with his arms extended, welcoming his congregation.

Prophetically, God is connecting networks in the wilderness, and the key is finding hidden treasures in pathways not walked before! That is what He is doing right now. He is literally going through the earth; His angels are going through the earth… to those who have been marked on their forehead before time, God says, ‘I knew you before.’ And those who have been known before, have been marked for such a time as this. The angels of the Lord are going out of the Courts of Heaven with a scroll and a list, and they are touching that one, and that one… touching the different ones saying, ‘You come with me.’ 

And all of a sudden you are saying, ‘Now wait a minute, I was totally comfortable in that other river.’ But you were touched by the Lord before you were born for that river of ‘what has not been seen before,’ and all of a sudden, the door of favor to what you had in river one, two, or three starts to shut… 

And for many, because of how stubborn you are, the angels are going to have to just kick you right out! But praise God you got this prophetic word—that the Lord told you that you were going to get kicked out. I would recommend you leave before you have to be kicked out…

Then you are going to go through a dry place, and the next thing you know, you are going to end up in the wilderness. You are going to meet people in that wilderness, and you are going to know them in five minutes! And in five minutes you can come into agreement to do things that take millions of dollars. You are going to totally trust them because you’re going to see them in the spirit, and they are going to see you. Some of you are going to see the mark on them in the spirit, and they are going to see the mark on you! It’s going to be instantaneous that you knew, for such a time as this, that the Lord had marked you and sent you! 

So where is the meeting place of this? It is in the spiritual desert.

“I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins. Put Me in remembrance; let us contend together; state your case, that you may be acquitted.”

—Isaiah 43:25-26 (emphasis added)

At Yom Kippur, God remembered our sins no more—particularly for those who are marked. All your past history, all the way back to the Garden… everything was erased! For His Name’s sake! Because He knew He was calling you. He knew He would call you at Sukkot…

But God also says, ‘Put Me in remembrance; let us contend together; state your case, that you may be acquitted.’

You are going to have to contend for your inheritance. Because the inheritance that you have spiritually, physically, financially, and in every way… your inheritance in Heaven, the Lord wants you to contend for it!

The reason the Lord wants you to contend is that He wants you to fight in the Courts of Heaven and not fight with man. He wants the prey to learn how to pray, not how to be predators. He wants you to contend for the inheritance! Whatever it is God has asked you to do, He wants you to ‘name it and claim it.’ He wants you to go in, state your case, and say, ‘No, we did this, we did that, we did this…’ 

‘Put me in remembrance…’ Why? Did God forget? No! He wants YOU to remember the history of the DNA of everything you/we have ever done. See, what God has had you/us do needs to be remembered. We need to demand payment in the spirit for that in this new move of God, now, in Yeshua’s Name! 

This makes the enemy afraid. Because you, and we, know the history; it shows that we are family… that we are a part of God’s family! And family gets the inheritance!


So it’s time to prepare for upgrades in your network. It is time. You are going to have to trust the Lord. God is shuffling the deck.

In preparation, you need to trade old habits for new habits. You need to discover new patterns that lead you to new pathways.

You’ve got to be ready because the Lord is going to speak to you in places you never dreamed of before.

Do not be impatient. Do not be like Sarah—Abraham’s wife. Praise God, Sarah is in the heroes of the faith, but her ‘man plan’ really almost messed up her ‘God plan.’ 

Do not let your ‘man plan’ rob your ‘God plan,’ because you think you are too old, or too late. 

It is time to break through to growth!

It is time to be persistent! 

It is time to be focused! 

It is time to cast off the old!

If you were getting ready to run a marathon, you would not be dressed in a suit… you would put on a pair of shorts, tennis shoes… you would get as light as you could… To give yourself the best chance and be the most comfortable, to be able to run that marathon. 

It’s been my experience in 30+ years, that most people in the Body of Christ are sprinters. They sprint. They sprint from conference to conference… Just a sprint.

The Bible is a marathon.

And if you study anything about marathons, most people who run marathons—24 to 26 miles or so—even well-trained athletes, hit a ‘wall’ at the 20-mile mark and want to quit. So before a marathon runner starts to run, they know they are going the full distance… but they also anticipate and understand that there is going to be a deep battle within. Because at about the 20-mile mark, almost every runner is going to hit that ‘wall’ where their physical body is going to want to stop and their brain is going to say, ‘I am not doing this anymore.’ They have to have enough discipline to be able to keep in motion and ignore that… until they get to about 22-miles when they pass the ‘wall’ and that ‘second wind’ comes, enabling them to finish the race.

Rabbi Curt Landry ushering a new hope in an uncertain world with his teachings.

YOU have to have that same plan in the fourth river. YOU need to understand that you are going to have well-meaning family members and friends in the other rivers saying, ‘It’s okay, you did 20-miles, praise God—we didn’t even think you were going to make it to 10! Go ahead, why are you killing yourself, sit down; I have the Gatorade, you did great!’ YOU have to know it’s coming and press through!

What I am telling you is going to happen. This whole message is ‘Thus sayeth the Lord!’

But you have to anticipate all of this…

So I am giving you three things in the ‘A.C.T.’ process to help you…

Black and white illustration of a Bible.


YOU need to apply Deuteronomy 31:6. YOU need to understand that you don’t need to fear the unknown because God loves you; because faith works through love, and He will not leave you, nor forsake you! You need to apply that into your life until you ‘own it.’

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

—Deuteronomy 31:6
Two arrows, one pointing to the right and one pointing to the left.


YOU need to change with Deuteronomy 31:7. Joshua was told to go; to not be afraid to GO. He had to GO. YOU have already divorced everything from the old—‘what was,’ ‘what is,’ and ‘what is to come’—and the Lord is going to ask YOU to GO and do things that once terrified you. But as Moses was telling Joshua, YOU have to GO!

“Then Moses called Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, ‘Be strong and of good courage, for you must go with this people to the land which the Lord has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall cause them to inherit it.’”

—Deuteronomy 31:7
A circle, square, and triangle connected by lines, with rotating arrows in the middle; transformation concept with shapes.


YOU have to transform into Deuteronomy 31:8. YOU have to stay in the glory and the fire of the Holy Spirit as you walk out from ‘what was,’ through ‘what is’ and ‘what is to come,’ and into ‘what has not been seen before.’ You see on the roadmap that it says, ‘wilderness; desert; dangerous;’ and as you go, you stay focused on the Lord.

“And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”

—Deuteronomy 31:8

Your family and friends in the other rivers are probably yelling at you to not go into the desert. But in faith, like Abraham taking Isaac to the mountain to sacrifice him, you know the Lord will provide. 

So, even as you walk out, apparently by yourself, into that sandy desert… all of a sudden, in the cool of the evening, as you are walking—without water and food, exhausted at that 20-mile mark—and your spiritual GPS says that there are four more miles to go, you are tempted to lay down and die. But you stand on the Word, trusting in God… Then, suddenly, you start to see footprints in front of you that you couldn’t see before. You didn’t notice it before, but all the time, your feet were stepping right into those footprints left by God! He was right before you the whole time! You didn’t see Him, or smell Him, or know He was there… but He was, and He IS there all the time! 

In that moment you whisper to Him. You listen to Him, and you hear a brook. Looking ahead, you see that there are date trees. And then you see a Man sitting by a fire. So you follow the footprints… you start to smell the bread, and the meat, and vegetables… and as you get close, the Man behind the fire stands up and extends His arms to you and says, “I am so proud of you! I am so blessed! I am so thankful that you trusted me… I am so thankful that you pressed through the ‘wall!’ I am so thankful that you prepared between Tabernacles and Hanukkah.”

The word the Lord gave is that it’s a time to PREPARE. That is your assignment! Preparation is the assignment now!

The Lord is preparing you for Hanukkah. He is preparing you to be like the Maccabees. He is preparing the small army to restore the LIGHT in the Temple that has been defiled.

The Lord says, “I am promoting the prepared!”

Taking It into the Courts of Heaven

If YOU will prepare… take a stand. The Lord is asking YOU if YOU will commit?! The Lord is wanting you to make a choice, and that choice is between you and Him.

The Lord has given me some pretty clear direction about preparing you to go between now and next Passover. The battle between now and Passover will be severe. The United States of America is getting ready to go through some major shifts—it already shifted at the Feast of Tabernacles.

If you remember at Passover, I prophesied to you that the revival and the awakening was not going to come into the Religious Mountain. Remember, I said it would come into the Business Mountain. Well, where did the revolution have the fuse lit? Of all places, Southwest Airlines…

Who would have ever thought that Southwest Airlines and unions would be used of God? But I am telling you, we have already won. Praise God for the Texas Governor. But as the ‘famous prophet,’ my uncle Lou said, ‘when it is not the money, it is the money.’ 

People like money. People like to be able to pay their bills. People like to be safe. People like having well-funded police forces. People like to be able to go to the grocery store and not have supply-chain issues. People like the American dream. And the Lord likes the American dream. And the Lord is not through with America. And He is definitely not through with Israel…

But as the ‘lava of judgment’ flows, the Lord is taking those in the fourth river to a safe place in the wilderness to prepare them for promotion. And in the midst of it, a major transfer of wealth.

In 5782—this year—He is uncoupling confusion. He is removing all of the things from your life that have made you double-minded. The Lord is doing it for His Name’s sake. He is coupling you to confirmation. And as you walk through the wilderness, obedient to go out in what appears to be blind faith… when you get to your oasis, you will find the Lord saying, like in John 21, “Children, have you caught any fish yet?” Then He will give you the strategy to throw the net over the right side of the boat, and you will get your instructions: “Feed my sheep, tend my sheep, feed my sheep.”

What is it to you if I let them prosper in ‘what was,’ ‘what is,’ and ‘what is to come,’ YOU FOLLOW ME!

What is it to you? YOU FOLLOW ME.

The Lord said, ‘I brought you here for a special gift.’ Are YOU ready to receive it?

The Lord said, ‘Cyrus is arising in 5782. And for all those who will say, “yes,” to immerse into the fourth river, to walk into the wilderness… I will anoint you as a Cyrus. I will commission and mantle you.’

If that is you, and you are saying ‘yes’ to walking into that fourth river, and you desire that anointing of Cyrus… do something prophetic and say, ‘I am walking. I am stepping in.’

Get out of your seat, God is releasing the anointing of Cyrus.

I believe that the anointing of Cyrus was stolen from this nation. When Donald Trump was not reelected, I sincerely believe that the anointing of Cyrus was removed from this nation. And if you look at the fruit, and you understand what it is… that the favor for us to find hidden treasures, and to open up doors and make the crooked places straight… all of that seemed to come abruptly to an end. I will never forget when Donald Trump said, “You are going to get tired of winning.” We have been losing.

You see, many were invited and few came. The Lord said, “Go out into the highways and hedges, and call them in, that My House might be filled.” That is what He is doing with YOU right now. You are from the highways and the hedges; YOU still have hope! 

What I believed for with the Cyrus anointing, in a major way, through a second term… was stolen. And today, even what we see in Afghanistan is the stealing of the Cyrus anointing. The Lord says, ‘I canceled that Cyrus anointing in Afghanistan at Tabernacles. I did it for My Name’s sake!’ 

Isn’t it interesting that we do not hear much about it anymore? 

God says, ‘I silenced it! Because it was not time! So I am going out to the highways and hedges, and I am going to anoint a grassroots move of the anointing of Cyrus… to those who will say that they are willing to go into the fourth river and live by the boundaries of Galatians 5:22-23, to purpose to make their plans as prey, not predator.’

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”

—Galatians 5:22-23

We must not battle with the enemy’s weapons of envy, jealousy, strife, murder, or anger. We must choose to walk in love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control—against such, there is no law. 

And God says, ‘I shall prosper with billions of dollars in authority, for I am raising up a new Cyrus in this time. And I will put them into the fourth river, and I will hide them in that river of what has not been seen before. I anoint you to be a Cyrus.’

Raise your right hand. 

God says, ‘I will hold your right hand in the midst of the wilderness, and I will subdue the nations before you. And I will set loose the armor of the kings; the powers, the principalities, and the evil forces I speak of in Ephesians 6:12. I will go before you!’

Go ahead and raise both hands now.

The Lord says, ‘I will open the double doors.’

Say, ‘Lord, I receive a double portion!’

“Thus says the Lord to His anointed,

to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held—

to subdue nations before him

and loose the armor of kings,

to open before him the double doors,so that the gates will not be shut:”

—Isaiah 45:1 (emphasis added)

Say, ‘Thank you Lord for a double portion of an international anointing. I will think larger than the United States of America, for our inheritance is the nations. The Lord says He will go before me and make the crooked places straight. He will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. In all the Seven Mountains of influence, no locked door; no gate; no vault; no treasure, is off-limits to God’s Kingdom…’

Rabbi Curt Landry at his service, teaching the ways of God.

Say, ‘Thank you, Lord, for cutting the gates of bronze. Thank you, Lord, that tonight, you are giving us the treasures of darkness, hidden treasures in secret places… that I may know that You are the Lord who called me, by Your Name—the God of Israel.’

“I will go before you

and make the crooked places straight;

I will break in pieces the gates of bronze

and cut the bars of iron.

I will give you the treasures of darkness

and hidden riches of secret places,

that you may know that I, the Lord,

Who call you by your name,

Am the God of Israel.”

—Isaiah 45:2-3

The testimony that the Lord is giving you, is for you to know. It is for you to know. It is not to prove to the ones in the other three rivers… it is for YOU. Do not care what they think; you have made up your own mind. You are walking your own way, in your own life, in your own plans… it is for you to know.

Yes. You will be given millions and billions, and you will be given authority, and you will be given favor, and you will be given health, and wealth, and prosperity—all those things… But all of it is small when compared to the end of the day, knowing that He was real to you! That you knew He was real to you. That you could trust Him. That when you were at the 20-mile mark and wanting to lay down and die, He picked you up.

Say, ‘Thank you, Lord. In the Government Court of Heaven, let it be recorded this day, that I may know Him from the rising of the sun, to the setting, that there is none besides You God. I declare, He is the Lord, and there is no other. I immerse 100% into the fourth river. Thank you, Lord. Your Word says that You, God, form the light and create the darkness, and You make peace and create calamity. You are the Lord Who does all these things.’

“That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting

that there is none besides Me.

I am the Lord, and there is no other;

I form the light and create darkness,

I make peace and create calamity;

I, the Lord, do all these things.”

—Isaiah 45:6-7

If you will put your right hand on your forehead, say, ‘Lord, I receive the fire of the Holy Spirit that brings the Light of the Glory of the fourth river, now, in Yeshua’s Name. All darkness in my mind, I bind it, and I cast it out, in Jesus’ Name. My mind is healed by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony. Thank you, Lord. I have Your mind in me. I am fully convinced, that He Who promised is able to perform it, and therefore, it is accounted to me. In the Courts of Heaven, let it be written and sealed in my book—I am accounted with the righteous, in Yeshua’s Name.’

‘I seal my new anointing and my new mantle as a Cyrus, in Yeshua’s Name! Amen!’

Give the Lord a great big hand clap!

I would recommend that you review this message a few times… and take an inventory of three things:

  1. What is it in your history that you fear? What is your number-one anxiety of ‘what was?’
  2. What are you concerned with in the present? What are you afraid of now?
  • It might be your job—you might be one of those people who has to say no and lose your job, if that is what you choose to do… I tell you though, you need to do what GOD is telling you to do and not what man is telling you.
  1. What is it that you fear in the future?

So you need to identify those, and then, get scriptures. Scriptures that battle in the opposite spirit to those three areas—with what God says. Amen?! And then put God into remembrance. 

The Lord is going to bless you—it broke loose tonight!

It is always a good idea when there is a message like this where you sow into the message… bring that judicial stamp into the Courts of Heaven saying, ‘My seed and my prayers come together to say that God lives!’

So, sow that seed. Don’t let your blessing slip away because you are not bringing your tithes and offerings. When things get tight, that’s the time to sow a seed—it breaks the assignment of poverty and the fear that comes with it. 

Know that we are praying for you. We are believing for you. And we are spiritually covering you.

I cannot stress to you enough the importance of being in covenant and covered. And know we are covering that fourth river. And I think you already know this, but we are never leaving the fourth river! We were invited by the Lord into it. I am staying in the river.
