It was a very short dream. As I woke up, I vividly remembered what I had seen. I was standing looking at someone. Was it the Lord? A voice said to me, "Your blood pressure is 197." I replied, "But I am not under stress." The voice responded, "It is about your thinking." I had absolutely no clarity about what that meant!
Over the next weeks, the dream often came back to my memory and I would ask those I was with, "Do you know what the dream means?" No satisfying answer came.
In October 2008, I made my third ministry trip to Australia. We were hosted by a church outside of the city of Sydney and enjoyed a wonderful two weeks of schools. This time, again, I was surprised by what transpired! Sudden impressions starting coming...
Before the school, the Lord had taught me how to stand behind a person and feel the "timeline" of the person. As I felt closer to the person's back, I could feel events early in their generational line; the further back away from the person I was, I felt further back in their generational line. There was a point behind them that I could actually feel a marked change and I realized that I was discerning the glory of the Lord and eternity; since that time, many others have confirmed that they could also feel the strong anointing of the presence of the Lord. New revelation was coming.
As I stood close to this point of eternity, I was able to discern the egg and sperm that formed the person. I could then feel the zygote, the first split into two cells and the split into four cells. Just after the feeling of "eternity," I discerned a scroll, which seemed to be the scroll written for the birthright of that person. I could also feel many spiritual beings assigned to the person. Just after the second split, I was surprised at the evil that I felt. It seemed to be some type of gate. As I discerned the gate, I asked others to describe what they saw. There was confirmation that evil had been inserted into the person's life just after conception. As we sought the Lord about this, we felt Him say that this was the insertion of the generational evil from the family line. Was I discerning "original sin"? Then I remembered my dream.
"It Is About Your Thinking"
"It is about your thinking." What thinking? My blood pressure was 197. Was there a key here? Revelation came. I thought, "Look up Job 19:7."
"If I cry out concerning wrong, I am not heard.
If I cry aloud, there is no justice."
Was this a clue? Then I thought, "Look up Psalm 19:7."
"The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;"
There it was! It is all about our thinking. What is our perspective of God? Generally, the world blames Him for all the difficulties of life. Supposedly, He is the source of all the evil in the world. "Why doesn't He intervene in my life? He is all powerful! Where is He when life goes bad? Why doesn't He help me in my need? In fact, maybe He is the one who is doing all this against me because I deserve it. But, what have I done to cause Him to hate me so much?" So, on and on our thinking goes.
We listen to others complain about God and we enter into agreement with them. Our pain is immense and we must find someone to blame. It must be God who is doing all this against me! It is a mindset established generations ago; in fact, a mindset originating in the Garden of Eden. The root is not in the Tree of Life, but in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. We have "bought into" the wrong mindset! We have believed the lie that God is not good! Our presuppositions are all wrong. Our belief systems have been based on a lie! It is all about our thinking!
This is Where to Start: "He Is Good!"
Job had suffered much! Agony had overpowered him. The pain was immense. Who did he blame? Is God to be blamed for all the evil that has happened? No! It is my thinking that is all wrong. Second Chronicles 5:13 gives us the correct starting place for our thinking. This is the prerequisite to all that we believe. "...they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the LORD, saying: 'For He is good, for His mercy endures forever.'" This is where I start! He is Good! If that is true, then the blame must go elsewhere. This is where the thinking must be corrected. It is the enemy that has deceived us into believing the lie about Who God is. It is our perverted thinking, mindset, and belief systems that have caused us to have an incorrect view of God.
During the last several years the Lord has told us, "Go back to the origin." What does that mean? The origin is the Garden of Eden. It is the place where the incorrect thinking originated. The Fall was never the Lord's intent. We have chosen the wrong way, the incorrect path. We have taken a wrong turn and gone our own way. We must go back to the origin. How? The death of Jesus Christ on the Cross has provided the only way.
Through His Blood shed on the Cross, we have the provision through acceptance in that sacrifice to return to the ancient path. "Thus says the LORD: 'Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls.'" We must take back the land, our birthright, given away to the enemy. We must come against the strongholds in the land of our inheritance and take back what the enemy has stolen.
"Return to the Ancient Pathways"
During the Sydney school, many words were received from the Lord that helped establish the foundation for this prayer. These words will be helpful in allowing you to understand the importance of this prayer.
Raylene about Australia: Right now, I feel very powerful angels all around you and us. One of them is saying: "This trip is very different than the others, Paul. Look for the differences; there will be many. They are the keys to the new path, the path in where you are to walk. I will show you the way. On this path, there is newness, more vision, more understanding, and deeper things. You will be outfitted for the warfare ahead. The battle rages, but you have the keys! We have been waiting for this time. We have been sent to help you find the path. Victorious victory! This is the time! Victory."
Andrew: "Courage, courage My son, for the times and the seasons will begin to unfold as My glory rises up from the well. You must yet mine the wells and you must get deep wells. In fact, all of you must have your wells dug. You must want the excavating work of the Spirit in your life, for at the bottom of the well there is a scroll and a path that goes deeper. Even as you would mine that well and beyond, there is another corridor and ancient path. My people have not walked this path before. You are traveling on holy ground. The ground below must be taken by you. Redeem the land."
Mimi: "Craft a prayer to set My people free. Craft a prayer to go through the grate, for the Lord is your head. The Lord goes before you. Change man's birthright for Australia. Establish God's birthright for this land, this people, for all future generations. The land was set to be desolate and forsaken. That is not My heart and not My will. Establish My will and My purpose for Australia. Call down the Kingdom for the will of God to be done."
Sally: "This is not a new plan. This plan has been on My heart since the foundation of the world. The passage of time has been moving toward this since the beginning of history. Carefully, I have placed each piece in place and I have built one thing upon another, for nothing is by accident, and I have called My people to pray. It is the prayers of My faithful ones that have laid the foundation. The ancient pathways are flowing with water. There are streams of living water following the ancient pathways. The river of God is flowing underground in the depths of the earth waiting to bubble up, bringing fresh life. The ancient pathways are pure. They carry pure water. Drink deeply of this water, the River of God that flows from My throne bringing life to everything it touches. Drink deeply from this well. Dig the wells to release the water."
Mimi: "Put on your full armor. You need protective gear to dig your wells. I will take you to areas you have never been before. You have gone up, and now you have to go down, down to the depths where you were secretly made. Go back in time to conception where you were intricately made and formed. Go there and retrieve. Retrieve what is yours; and I give you the secrets, the mysteries which are hidden in the depths. But, you must be fully armed and armored because it is a dark place, but I go with you."
Craig: "The fire must flow from the ancient pathways. Burn away to clear the chaff. The walls will crumble, and the way will be made new that My people may walk on the words of life, that they may see the glory of My sun as it rises about the land; that they may take My hand and walk with Me in the cool of day, in the rising of the sun and the coming moon.
"They will bow once again to Me, and the ground will cry out, Holy, Holy, Holy am I. All My ways are great. Who would question Me on the designs of My creation? Who will tell Me where to go and where to rest and where to rise and where to fall? For, I am the Lord; My word is forever, and I hold all things together.
"The very fabric of My thoughts, I have fashioned together that you might know Me and know yourself; that you might know love and walk without fear; and that you might break down the prison walls that life will flow from them. I have heard their cries and will answer them today. I am making a way and cutting down the tree. Step over it and come to Me."
Mimi: "Dig up the ancient wells. The ancient wells were buried treasures of Heaven. Remove the evil mindsets over the ancient wells. The ancient wells were put in place and the ancient paths have been polluted and stopped up because I was rejected. The Word of God was rejected, so these ancient wells were stopped up. Go deep, deep, deep into the ancient wells, for that is where My Glory wants to bubble up, rise up and surface."
Bruce and Irene: "The mines are Mine. Great wealth is coming. It is not man's wealth; it is His provision, His treasure. The wealth is in the people. Go low; go low; prostrate yourself before Me. Seek; seek My light, My path. Only the humble will enter, but the righteous shall live by faith. Open the eyes of your spirit. Seek Me with all your heart."
Amybeth: "Since time began, My heart has yearned for those who would seek Me for these truths. My heart has yearned for the day that I might restore to My people the intimacy of My heart. I have wept for the obstacles that remain between My heart and My children, for I am indeed your Abba Father and I long to embrace you in a way you have never known and in a way you have never come. The ancient pathways will lead you to a secret place, a place of intimacy and joy and connection. My heart grieves for My children who, although they know Me, have been kept back from Me. Break through the grate by your words, wisdom and declarations that come from the throne of God. I send My witnesses. I send My authority. I send My Son, for the words that I send forth from this day will change the pathways. It is time."
It is time to change our thinking!

I reject the wisdom of man, and I repent for the pride in my family line that saw the wisdom of God as foolishness.

I claim my spiritual birthright of being conceived in love, of being given the Spirit of God who reveals wisdom to me, and of being given spiritual eyes in my heart to see the riches of His glorious inheritance. I claim that I am being formed in the image of His glorious Son. I reject the seed of satan and I reject my position as a child of the father of lies and murder. I ask You, Abba Father, to close the eyes that were open when Adam and Eve partook of the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
I renounce and reject any ungodly rights or authorities that were given to the soul to direct my mind along ungodly pathways.
I agree with God's original plan that all spiritual wisdom of good and evil originates from God's throne and is revealed to my spirit. I agree that the Holy Spirit has permission to direct my spirit and to lead my soul and body. I receive the seed of the Holy Spirit into my spirit by which power I cry Abba, Father.
Lord, on behalf of myself and my family line, I repent for questioning God's Word and therefore inviting the influence of Leviathan, the king of pride, into my life.

Lord, I agree with Your Word, which says that the weapons of my warfare are not carnal but mighty through You to the pulling down of strongholds. I choose to cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and I choose to bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
Lord, would You release the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit to restore me to the path of holiness. Lord, please cause Your Perfect Love to run through my entire being, casting out all fear. I ask the Lord to repair or replace any part of my brain or neural pathway required to establish attachment with My Heavenly Father and fellow man.
Lord, would You cause me to dwell in the Secret Place of the Most High. I declare my birthright is to walk with Abba Father in the garden where I hear His voice and enjoy intimate fellowship with Him. I believe that Jesus Christ appropriated this intimacy for me when He ripped the veil in the Holy of Holies. Lord, I repent for my generational line that tried to earn by works that which You had given freely by grace. Lord, please now usher me into that place of rest and perfect peace.
