February 2023 Partner Newsletter

Dearest Partner,

I would like to take a moment to thank our partners. You have made all the difference this past year with us! Because of you, we have reached more people than we could have imagined. This year we are believing to bring the truth and light of God’s Word to many more than ever before. Together we are a united front for the assignment God has given Heather and me to accomplish. If there is one thing I could convey to you it is this—we love you. We are praying for you and want to see you win in every area you are believing God for! You really are in our thoughts and constantly the topic of our conversation. We pray for you as if you are our family because that is what you are with us in this assignment, a family of believers reaching the world.

Breaking Hell’s Economy Book

Your guide to last-days supernatural provision. Forward by Gene Bailey, the host of Flashpoint Live, with a very special endorsement by Rick Renner. This book was written by the urgent direction of the Holy Spirit. It didn’t seem to make sense then, but after obeying and seeing where we are in the world today, I know THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN FOR YOU. It is not another book on prosperity; this is a book on BEING THE SUPERNATURAL LIGHT IN DARKNESS and the extreme ways God will take care of you in the middle of dark days. It was dark in Egypt, but it was light in Goshen! It is time for the GLORY OF THE LORD TO BE REVEALED! I believe you will discover a PROPHETIC NOW WORD for where we are and how to stand in the coming days!

The Rightsizing Is Here! 

Nearly three years ago, the Spirit of the Lord prompted me to begin speaking about a course correction that would be coming to the prophetic movement—specifically that those with an apostolic authority would step in and bring order. It was as if dad was going to take the wheel for a moment so the vehicle didn’t completely go off the road. In 2020, it became glaringly evident that this was going to become necessary. As a response, I began a written work dealing with the subject of good prophetic ministry. It was also at this time that a strong sense came to me that I was to redirect my attention to a prophetic book. In this book, I was to write about a rising up in the middle of darkness, through a collision of kingdoms, with an emphasis on God’s provision in the middle of it all. That is how my book Breaking Hell’s Economy came about. It has been tremendously successful, even ranking with some of the largest voices in the financial realm. It has been a source of faith and clarity to those who wish to break free of the gates of Hell and the influence it has on the culture. I know that this book is necessary for the days that we are living in and for where things are going worldwide. 

That change of assignment was a targeted mission the Lord had need of. Today, there is another mission that is rising up in front of us. It is a return to a proper foundation regarding the prophetic movement. Nothing is new about these types of rightsizing, in an area that grows unbalanced requiring an adjustment. Uniquely enough, at this exact time, we are seeing fathers and leaders of the faith who are calling out and speaking a word of correction to many who claim to be prophets or apostles and who claim to have special supernatural gifts of revelation. My response to this is simply to say; CORRECTION IS NECESSARY! There is nothing new under the sun. The church has gone through these types of corrections or times of rightsizing throughout history. This is happening today and again it is necessary. Depending on the level of teachability and humility by those involved, is what will define the duration of the rightsizing. If there is no humility and teachability, then we will see a sick foundation established. Let me explain, when prophetic words, prophecies, predictions, and unique and wild revelations are not allowed to be judged by seasoned veteran voices, within the Fivefold leadership of the Body of Christ, the foundation will be faulty at best. The next generation will stand on a foundation of wrong information leading to wrong conclusions. This cannot be allowed. What must take place is a humble and teachable attitude, going back to the Word of God to discover what is right. 

Red Eagle 1 Campaign

I would like to thank you for praying! Many of our partners often tell us that they are not just supporters but prayer supporters for us. What an honor to have! As demands for good teaching and healthy prophetic ministry grow, we are stepping up to meet them. With your help, we are reaching millions through 20 different social media platforms, ministering in churches and events, as well as taking steps in media, especially toward a new studio. Our new studio will have a tremendous amount of space for live broadcasting, television recording, interviewing special guests, live nights of ministry, and so much more! This and, of course, the DA62, the twin-propeller airplane. 

We have taken the first step of placing the down payment on it and are saving up for this wonderful aircraft. Heather will be the first to tell you that I don’t like to travel, but I do it unto the Lord, and this aircraft makes it so much more convenient and will allow us to reach so many more people than ever before. Years ago, I worked in the aviation industry. It was as if the Holy Spirit was preparing me for a day when we would reach many people all over America through aviation. Your gifts and support through a partnership are what make this possible. I am so very grateful to you for your generosity toward this project. We have a little ways to go as we are believing for nine hundred thousand dollars to pay the plane off in full. We are currently on a waiting list as there has been a demand, and with supply chain issues, delays have been part of the process. We are taking this as a blessing to have more time to accumulate this additional 900 thousand dollars to pay it off. Thank you for praying with us over this and for your consideration in being a partner with us! We are so thankful to you for being co-laborers with Heather and I on this journey.

It should not be a shocking concept that there would be false prophets and false teachers in the last days. Jesus, Himself stated in Matthew 24 that many false prophets would rise with the purpose and intent of deception.

Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.

—Matthew 24:11

The word “deceive here in Matthew 24:11 is the Greek word planaō

which means “cause to wander” what an insightful word! One sign of false prophets is they cause their audience to wander and through their deception, their followers can have a wandering life. This can manifest in their actual physical life, they are unable to surrender to anyone and float around, or maybe they don’t physically move around, but they are all over the place when it comes to the truth. They are not clear in discernment and will take anything a false prophet says. Regardless, the wandering produced in those who listen to false prophets is to get them away from being a strong disciple of the Bible. These wander from the truth for the benefit of the false prophets. Wandering is a sign of deception. We could say the deceived wander. These are those that have been taken by deceit for they are ever learning but not able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Always learning and never able to come to 

the knowledge of the truth.

—2 Timothy 3:7

Always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Never able. Their pathway is an experiential loop, a figure eight of mystical experiences. This wandering is due to seducing spirits, which operate by the empowerment deception provides. These spirits work through more than a sexual draw. Seducing spirits cause you to step off course by drawing you away from your assignment. False prophets, who with the spirit of seduction, may even proclaim that Jesus is Lord, that Jesus saves, and you must be born again. They will even give glory to Jesus. This can be part of the craftiness and sophistication of a seducing spirit. It draws you away from the will of God and keeps you wandering by always needing the next prophetic word. Sadly, many today do not truly know the Word of God regarding these issues and as a result, follow nearly anyone who says they are a prophet.

Not knowing the Word of God makes people susceptible to deception. There are also levels of deception, biblically speaking, just as there are stages to fruitfulness. Jesus pointed this out in the parable of the Sower. Fruit was born at 30, 60, and 100-fold, this is possible in regard to the darkness as well. If your eye becomes dark, how great is that darkness? The eye is the window of the soul. This all begins with a thought which has not been taken captive by the authority of the Word of God. Until it becomes a high place that must be cast down. It could be argued that there are thoughts of deception, then strongholds or ingrained ways of deceptive believing—so powerful that only deliverance can break a person out. Finally, complete deception is when the heart has been given over entirely to the works of darkness. This is in stages, 30, 60, and 100-fold into darkness.

Those who are hearing such a person might know Jesus, and love Jesus but have no grasp on what the Bible teaches on such matters. Thus, they come up with knee-jerk reactions such as, “touch not the Lord’s anointed, or do not question the prophet.” However, nothing could be more unbiblical for a New Testament believer! As one solid prophet of God recently put it. Why would we need two or three to judge a prophetic word in the New Testament church according to 1 Corinthians 14:29 if every time someone prophesies it is God speaking and cannot be questioned or corrected? The reason is that New Testament prophetic voices CAN MISS IT! Or they can be off a little. The entire reason we are called the Body of Christ is to have the Body minister to the other parts of the body. You have a fivefold governmental structure in place, as well as church leadership, which is all for the edifying and building up of the saints. It is my personal thought that the Lord has allowed prophets to only know in part and prophesy in part. So that there would be a need for the other parts of the Body of Christ. 

Let us take a closer look at this truth by looking into Ephesians 4.

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

Ephesians 4:11-16

Governmental leadership gifts are assigned to equip and edify the body of Christ. The number one priority of a prophet is to equip and edify the body. Now, there may be those who have an anointing to warn of things that are to come (see Acts 11 where Agabus warned of a famine that was coming). There are those who are called to give words of encouragement to believers in meetings (see the book of Acts where Judas and Silas, prophets from Antioch, gave words of encouragement to people in the audience). John the Baptist, even though he was not prone to give prophecies to people, however, through a prophetic unction, he declared, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” 

It is very serious that anyone who claims to be a prophet stays submitted to authority and under good counsel. It is never ok for anyone—prophet or not— to be above correction. God desires His body to be healthy and every one of us should always be open to scriptural scrutiny and clarification by the Word of God. 

Recently, there have been prophetic voices, who after receiving a rebuke, have even attempted to explain and justify their error with the Bible. The conclusion they come to is, “don’t question the prophet, if you question the prophet something bad will happen to you.” That is absolute manipulation and spiritual abuse at its finest. It is evil, using the Word of God as a deflection to rebellion and deception. A saying I have appreciated comes from a physicist who once said, “if you torture scientific data long enough; you can make it confess to anything.” This is often how unrepentant and deceptive people respond to those who say we need to return to the Bible. They themselves will attempt to justify what they are doing by torturing the Scripture enough, twisting it to make it seemingly confess to what they are saying. I humorously call these deceivers members of an ungodly rock band called “Twisted Scripture!” They’re not gonna take it! No, they’re not gonna take it, they’re NOT gonna hear TRUTH anymore!  

Again, one issue is that they cause their followers to wander. They do not mature; they do not follow Jesus through His written Word. Rather, they cause those who listen to them to wander and lose track of what the Bible actually says. Something I have said many times is this, “the Devil couldn’t beat the church, so he did the next best thing—he joined it.” He knew going head-on against the church would only mean his defeat. Instead, he chose to infiltrate it through heresies, and off-kilter wild revelatory teaching from unbalanced individuals. 

For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty.

—2 Peter 1:16 

Cunningly devised fables are the way of false revelators. They are experts at creating stories that blow people away. Then Peter goes on to talk about his experience on the mountain when they saw Jesus transfigured right before them. Peter was saying, if anyone could boast about amazing supernatural experiences, he could, along with James and John. However, he doesn’t go there; rather, he bypassed all the issues. Ultimately saying, the written Word is the greater authority.

Now, my ministry is a prophetic one, and I say some very strong and direct prophetic things on my daily broadcast. However, never at the expense of the Word of God, and I certainly do not believe any prophetic word, prediction, or special revelation I deliver is above being corrected by the Word of God. I ask some of the most qualified voices in the world to check and are welcome to correct me at any time. It is my personal conviction that it doesn’t matter if an angel appears to me or another entity. Nothing will ever be allowed to rise above the written Word of God. Not ever! All revelation should end at the building up of the church and believers. This includes times of exhortation, comfort, encouragement, as well as prediction and correction by the Word of the Lord. What does anyone have to lose by taking inventory of what they are saying in light of Scripture? There is nothing to be gained (with the exception of selfish gain) by doubling down on perverse and strange revelatory experiences. Let’s allow the truth to have its day! The truth is not subjective, it is absolute! I believe we are stepping into a time of simplicity, instead of complex lengthy, sophisticated prophetic words. It is time to stop wandering and start finding. Coming to biblical conclusions about God, His Word, and your destiny. It is all in His Word. 

I will continue this topic going forward, I am going to explain the real, the novice, and the false prophets. It’s important that we understand because information brings peace, clarification, and victory. I bless you and I believe there will be more ahead for this topic. I believe it will really help you. I bless you and speak life over you. Jesus wants you to live, move, and have your being and not wander in confusion. He wants you to arrive at your destination and the purpose for your life and that is why false prophetic voices are dangerous but true ones are so helpful especially when they guide you to the Word of God and cause you to grow in maturity, finding your footing and never wandering. I bless you. 

For Jesus, 

Joseph Z
