The Reign of The New House

Around the time of the birth of our third child, Reign, God highlighted my childrens' names to me as a progressive prophetic revelation of His will for this hour.

The Scriptures tell us that we are "living epistles" and that God is the author and finisher of our faith.
2 Corinthians 3:3, Hebrews 12:2

Isaiah 8:18a

"Behold, I and the children whom the LORD has given me are signs"

Cadence Celeste

Before our first child was born, my wife had a dream about her name, Cadence. The symbolic significance of our firstborn child being female is important because God wants us to be receptive to His heart as a priority. Her name, Cadence Celeste, means "the Rhythm of Heaven" or "to be in-step and on-time with Heaven". Her birth on New Year's Day, was like an exclamation point of confirmation to my wife's dream, since New Year's Day is so strongly associated with time. I asked God what the Rhythm of Heaven is, and I began to hear His heartbeat as though I were listening through a stethoscope. God showed me that the Rhythm of Heaven is His heartbeat towards us, and that He wants a heart-connection with His people more than anything else!
John 15:9-11

Royal Levi

Our second child's name, Royal Levi Hood, was also given to to us in a dream. His name literally translates to royal priesthood because the Levites were the priests.

Once we've actually received the heart of God, we see that it's His will for His whole Church to rise up into our true identity, corporately, as the Royal Priesthood. We can't expect the "professional" Christians to "do church" for us — We are all the Royal Priesthood.
1 Peter 2:9

As we begin to take our place in the Spirit in our priestly role, releasing the Word of the Lord through prayer in an atmosphere of praise and thanksgiving, we will see the rule of Christ in the Church again!

Reign Xavier

The news of our third pregnancy was exciting, but initially left us wondering, "How do you follow names like 'Cadence Celeste' and 'Royal Levi'?"

We had tentatively chosen a boys name, but as we were discussing it, our daughter interrupted us and said very seriously, "That is not his name. God is going to name this baby." We prayed "Lord, if You want to name this baby, please give us a dream and confirm it like you did with our other children." Soon afterwards, my sister-in-law called us with a dream she had that we were having a boy, and his name was Reign. In the dream, I exclaimed "Yes, now we have Royal and Reign!" At the time of her dream, we hadn't yet discovered the gender of our baby. When we found out that it was a boy, we were confident that God was naming him Reign, and that He would provide for us.

Reign means "to hold royal office" or "rule as king or queen". Xavier means "the New House" and also means "Savior". Literally translated, his name means the Rule of the Savior and/or the Rule of the New House.

In summary, as we, the Saints, get in step with the rhythm of heaven, we realize that we are a royal priesthood that is meant to rule and reign with Christ in life through His house of prayer for all nations!
Romans 5:17, Revelation 5:10

Reign was born at 11:19pm on May 24th, and his birth happened in a very sudden and unexpected way. By the time my wife's water broke to the time he was born, everything went so fast that the only thing she had time for was to just push. We see this as a picture of the end-times church. Even though it seems like we, the church, are far from being birthed into our full potential, thus revealing the glory of God here on earth, He can bring it forth in a moment!

Isaiah 66:8

Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Shall a nation be brought forth in one moment? For as soon as Zion was in labor she brought forth her children.

At the same time Reign was born, it began to rain/pour really hard, even in the midst of a drought! Meanwhile, across the world in Nepal, minutes before his birth, there was an earthquake that struck Mount Everest — shaking the highest mountain in the world. God is shaking everything that can be shaken in order to reveal the fullness of His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven in these last days.
Haggai 2:6-9, Hebrews 12:26-29

Isaiah 2:2

It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it,

Since this scripture has always been a constant prophetic word over our ministry, the fact that the highest mountain on earth was shaken when Reign was born felt like a powerful confirmation to us that God is beginning to exalt the mountain of His house in our time. Get excited!

Full Moon Full Moon Full Moon Full Moon Full Moon

Moons and Bay Dream

On May 3rd, I had a dream that I was overlooking the Bay Area from where Pacific Heights would have been, but when I looked out, instead of the current city view, it was all beautiful, pristine nature. I was inspired to spend time with the Lord to thank Him for this spectacular beauty. As I looked into the clear, blue, daytime sky, I saw a full moon. When I looked closer, I then saw five full moons. As I began to count them again, I noticed many more full moons starting to appear — too many to count, with no end in sight. At that moment, I realized that it was too late to pray, because I had to run and tell everyone what I had seen.

Full Moon

Waves and Moon Dream

Later that night, I dreamt that I opened the front door of our ministry house here in San Francisco and looked outside. I saw huge, bright, aqua-colored waves stacked on top of each other as far as the eye could see; it looked like they reached all the way to the sky! A huge full moon was in the waves, slowly coming toward me.

The waves had such an awesome beauty that anyone who saw them would instantly perceive that God is indeed good, yet there was also a tangible sense of finality about what is to come, and even dread for those who were not ready.


A friend of ours had what he believed to be an interpretation. The moon is symbolic of the church, His Bride, as it has no light of its own, but it reflects the light of the sun (Son, Jesus). When the moon is full, it's at its highest potential of reflecting the fullness of His light.

Also, it could represent the fullness of time. In nature, the tides are highest at new moons and full moons. The waves in the dream seemed to be symbolic of an overwhelmingly powerful move of God.

In both of these dreams, there was a similar feeling that there was no more time left, and that we were entering into a new epoch. The time we are entering into will be an era where the knowledge of the glory of the Lord will cover the earth like the waters cover the sea!
Habakkuk 2:14

Isaiah 30:26

Moreover, the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day when the LORD binds up the brokenness of his people, and heals the wounds inflicted by his blow.

We're gonna need His Joy!

The culture of the coming end-times revival will be similar to the revival that took place in Nehemiah 8. We will have a deep revelation of just how far we've fallen away from God's heart, yet all who cry to the Lord will be quickly ushered into joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory! The Church will be a place of jubilant celebration where we will worship the Lord with high praises and rejoicing night and day. This celebration won't stop until He returns to Jerusalem with the joyous sound of "Hosanna in the highest, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord" ringing out in the streets.

Nehemiah 8:10b

do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!

Romans 14:17

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

A Culture of Quick Release

Ephesians 1:9-10

making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in Him, things in heaven and things on earth.

Now is the time to facilitate an environment where people from all the Bible-believing congregations can gather in unity to pray and worship in the freedom that Jesus purchased for us at the cross. The emphasis must be on seeking His face. There is an urgency for us to align with Christ to get ready for the waves of His Spirit. In the quick-release culture that Jesus modeled, He threw His disciples into various situations right away where they had opportunities to learn and practice their faith. A practical way for us to walk this out is to have an open-mic format in church gatherings where we invite each member of the Body to do their part as the Holy Spirit leads. "But all things should be done decently and in order."
1 Corinthians 14:40

Leaders must make room for each believer to have a voice in our church gatherings, as not to quench the Holy Spirit. Jesus said "My sheep hear my voice, and they follow me." We must all act as the royal priesthood that God intends us to be, releasing the Kingdom of God by giving voice to His Word corporately! It's time to make it all about Jesus; the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
Revelation 19:10, John 17:21

Ephesians 4:15-16

Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the Head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
