Faith Isn’t A Matter Of Believing

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Faith isn't a matter of believing what you read. Believing what you read isn't how your heart is healed and it isn't relationship with Him. Faith is believing Him (and to believe Him you have to know Him). This is Him speaking to your heart to reveal His heart, changing you and bringing you to Him. Faith is Him working in you. Trust is yours. Faith is His. That is how you are healed.

I Am Convinced Of His Faithfulness

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I am convinced of His faithfulness. What He is faithful to is something I have learned recently.

 

This happened when I desired to be delivered from what humbled me. He assured me what humbled me was His gift to me. He said it was His will for me, and it would teach me the value humility above all He would give me.

 

Before I learned to value humility, it was my appearance I valued, and I that is what I wanted Him to restore to me. I considered my appearance to be in great need of healing. He considered my perspective to be what was in need of great healing, so He gave me humility.

 

Humility is not seeking self, it is seeking Him, not seeing self, but seeing Him. He protects us from the wants and desires of self so nothing in this life can tempt us away from Him.

 

The humble don't desire to see themselves in this life, and they don't desire to see their own way. What the humble desire is His heart and His presence and seeing Him is how He keeps them with Him. What He is faithful to as He humbles our heart is His love for us, and being humbled, we can see this of Him.

In Your Life

By Kathy Mote

 

In your life, God isn't controlling, He is protective, but as He moves in the Earth, He is decisive. He is holding you close to His heart as He brings about many changes. You are hidden safely in the folds of His garment as He keeps you from the great shaking. This is the day we are in. He has already brought into your heart the many changes He will bring to those who are without Him. For them, He will come in the midst of a great storm, but He deals gently with the surrendered.

When My Daughter Was In Second Grade

By Kathy Mote

 

When my daughter was in second grade, my husband lost his job. So I packed up my cleaning supplies and cleaned houses to make ends meet while he looked for another job.

 

Those were the not so good old days when his behavior often caused consequence for my children and I. In those days I learned to gather my wits and my children in my arms and trust the Lord with all my heart.

 

We were fairly new to the area, and my little second grader was told to wait at the school doors to be picked up when school let out. One day I was running late, and I asked my husband to pick our little daughter up.

 

Two hours after school let out I finally arrived at home. Where is our daughter?? Still waiting at school. He had forgotten to pick her up.

 

My heart flew into a panic. I rushed to the school to gather her into my arms. I cried the whole way, barely able to hear the Lord as He told me she was safe from harm.

 

As I pulled up she got into the car. She asked me if I was ok. I must have looked a mess. But she wasn't afraid, she said, because Jesus spoke to her and told her it would be alright. She said He waited with her.

 

That night as I went to bed, I thought about how I had lost my mind. Well, what I did was I lost sight of His. When we consider the consequence of not being kept by Him, we have taken our eyes off of Him. We lose sight of His heart by not trusting His faithfulness to keep us there. The Lord said someone needs to hear this.♥️

Those In The Word

By Kathy Mote

 

Those in the world speak with such hatred against us because our beliefs in God challenge their desire to rebel against Him. Their belief that they are a god unto themselves is the core of their rebellion.

 

The human rights they respect are those that rise against Him. This is why they see our respect for Him as disrespect for them. If our thinking hadn't challenged their perceived right to rule, they would have ignored us.

 

We would be wise not to despise them. They are here to refine us. Their actions are prompting world events, and this is important. It is one thing to hate rebellion, and quite another to hate the rebellious.

I Know

By Kathy Mote

 

 

 

I know what it is to stand and watch as my enemies are scattered from before me. I know what it is to see the Lord give to my enemy the very portion my enemy desired for me. I know what it is to stand before the Lord as the enemy came gunning for me. It was in those moments of the fiercest warfare in my life that the Lord revealed His faithfulness to His will for me.

 

In the years since, I have thought back on this often. My heart warms at the memory of how, against all odds, His strong arm set me above my enemy as He delivered me. But that is not what gives me peace as His enemy now comes to taunt me. As I leave His will for me up to Him, His presence brings a palpable peace that lives and breathes inside me.

We Were Never Meant To Fully Understand

By Kathy Mote

 

We were never meant to fully understand God in our mind, nor were we invited to accept Him in our head. Our minds are not a big enough screen to show us the whole picture of Who He is.

 

He meant for us to know Him in our heart. That is why we don't know Him by reading about Him or reading what He said. You can't know anyone like that.

 

He made our heart to know and receive Him and to enter into relationship with Him. How else would we become one with Him. Our hearts were made for Him.

 

Knowing Him is far more personal and real than knowing about Him. Knowing about Him doesn't bring us to Him. Only Him revealing His love to us can bring us to Him, and He does this to heal our heart.

I Had A Friend Long Ago

By Kathy Mote

 

I had a friend long ago who thought very differently than I did. People were either good or bad, right or wrong, or true or false to her thinking, but her thinking didn't leave any room for the Lord or what He was doing in them.

 

I would often become frustrated with her, even though I loved her dearly as a friend. What helped me so much was when the Lord showed me my own heart in this. In my own heart I neglected to trust Him for what He would do in her.

 

He told me that He was not finished with all He would do in her heart, something that was between Him and her. So the small, hard and shriveled heart I thought I saw in her was also how my heart responded to her.

 

As He revealed His heart to me, it broke my heart to see where my heart had been. I had judged the work of His hands, and to do this I had looked down at her and not up at Him. This is something I will never ever do again.

We Pour Over The Scriptures

By Kathy Mote

 

We pour over the scriptures, thinking that to understand them is to receive what is written in them. The scriptures weren't meant to be practiced, they were meant to lead us to Him. The Life and love and abundance and provision we seek is in His presence.

 

We will only know abundant Life in our fellowship with Him because abundant Life is living, being and abiding IN Him. All the fancy words and phrases that describe what we desire from Him don't come close to the Truth, that love, peace, provision, and all that is beautiful is Him and the Life that is Him. He created us. Our identity is in Him.

The Departure From Sound Doctrine

By Prophet Ken Dewey

 

 

A Prophecy concerning the Characteristic of the End Times, found first In the Holy Scriptures.

 

In the Word of God we find a very real and important warning for the End Times.

 

This Word is speaking about “Certain characteristic [a distinguishing trait, quality, or property] to look for and be identified as Prophetic Declaration of those days.

 

The “Word” I speak of is [Departure from Sound Doctrine], which will take many away from the Truth and will cause great harm to the Body of Christ and the advancement of the Gospel Message.

 

Sound Doctrine

 

“2Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”2 Timothy 4:2-4.

 

According to the above verse 3, it was Prophesied that a Day was coming when Sound Doctrine will not be tolerated.

 

The Word used to describe this time was: “they will NOT ENDURE” Sound Doctrine, but they would turn away from the SOUND and substitute Teachings that please the Lust of Men.

 

These Men Made Words will PLEASE THE FLESH, and many will not even wish to go to a Church or to hear a Preacher preach that does preach Sound Doctrine.

 

Men will even go so far as to [hire] “heap to themselves” TEACHERS to TICKLE THEIR EARS. In order for this sort of discrimination to be made one need only that TEACHERS WILL BE QUESTIONED, EXAMINED, AND QUIZZED as to what they Believe.

 

If such a Teacher is found to hold to SOUND DOCTRINE OF THE WORD OF GOD, that Teacher will be “Rejected”, spurned, or turned away.

 

The Dictionary definition of the word “Quizzed” is:

 

To question (someone), especially closely or repeatedly: “His searching questions as he quizzed me.”

 

To test the knowledge of by posing questions.

 

Archaic To poke fun at; mock.

 

It then is recognized that [Deliberate Questioning and Judging] will take place to discover “Exactly” what the Preacher Believes and Teaches.

 

I suggest to you that this is already taking place in most all places today.

 

Today, any Preacher who preaches “Sound Bible Doctrine” will be labeled and given a Name “LEGALISTIC”.

 

He will be shunned, rejected and talked about in a derogatory manner. Many of those who label the Bible Preacher are just the opposite: they preach a Legalistic Message but do not back it up with Scripture.

 

The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy [in the Inspired Scriptures added to the Cannon of Scripture] that Timothy should,

 

Preach the Word of God.

That simply means the Preacher should “use the Bible Text” and preach that clearly.

To be “Instant, in season or out of season” in preaching the Word.

In other words [at all times of preaching] it would be most advisable to “preach the Bible”, and not to take their text from any other source.

To be exact, there would NEVER BE A TIME when the Preacher should depart from using Sound Bible Scriptures in his Message.

The Preacher should be one who: Reprove, Rebuke, and Exhort, by using the Word of God, namely SCRIPTURES TAKEN FROM THE BIBLE.

I suggest this sort of Preaching or Teaching will not be accepted in many places today, and many Churches will not tolerate such Preaching any more.

 

The sort of Preaching or Teaching men desire is not taken direct from the Scriptures, but from Men’s opinions [or religious teachings of the Bible].

 

When Men do throw out the Word of God and cease preaching it as Doctrine, then The Holy Spirit which wrote the Scriptures is offended and quenched.

 

This is a most clear definition of today’s preaching: “Spiritless Preaching”.

 

Men have learned how to have Church without The Holy Spirit. The very Words that The Holy Spirit taught are now questioned and set aside. Modern Preaching is even offensive to The Holy Spirit.

Let Me

By Lion Bites

 

I hear the Spirit of The LORD say, “My Child, I see you shake when you hear of revival and harvest because you are so tired. You’re tired of fighting to hold it all together. Tired of struggling to get through a day, never mind a week. But that’s because you are trying to do it on your own.

 

Let Me take that burden off you right now; let Me be your source. Let’s go through each day, moment by moment together. Take My Hand and let Me lead the way. Only go where I go! Only go when I go! Only listen to My Voice. Trust Me! Lay that burden down at My Feet, and I will handle it. Then focus on Me and what I tell you.”

 

Activation: Take some time today to lay your burdens down at Jesus’ feet and ask for forgiveness for trying to do it on your own. Rest in His Presence and build up your faith.

 

Jude 1:20-21 NASB “But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking forward to the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.”

Philippians 1:6 NKJV “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

 

14 April 2021. Salt and Light

 

“You are the salt and light on your street, in your neighborhood, at your workplace, your school and in your nation! You are the one who preserves and demonstrates My Life! Yet, it requires your participation. Salt is only useful when it is used. Light is only evident when it is uncovered.

 

So, let your light shine! Sprinkle salt into conversations, social media and all your interactions. Let your light be uncovered! Yes, it might cost you something; give it anyway! It cost Me everything, and I ask you to follow My Example.

 

Let your light shine. Dare to stand out as one who is from My Kingdom and not of this earthly kingdom. Sprinkle Kingdom Thoughts, Words and Deeds in order to push back the decay and death that is creeping upon the earth. Be brave! I AM with you!”

 

Matthew 5:13-16 NIV ““You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Fighting the Good Fight

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

I heard, “Get up, My Warrior. Arise and keep fighting the good fight of FAITH.

 

Your BIRTHRIGHT and your DOUBLE PORTION is SET IN STONE, therefore NO weapon formed against you shall prosper for this is your heritage and your Vindication is of Me!”

 

“What weapon has been formed against you, Beloved? Fear not. I have put My Spirit in your heart to combat EVERY lie of the enemy.

 

I AM your Helper. I have declared, and it is SET IN STONE, My Child, that NO weapon formed against you shall prosper.

 

My Word is the Rock on which you stand. I AM the Word and I AM that Rock. You shall not be moved, My Child.

 

My Word is Truth. My Word does not change and I do not change. I AM the same, yesterday and forever.

 

I AM Yahweh; I AM He who helps you; therefore you shall not be confounded or disgraced: therefore set your face like flint, and you shall not be ashamed.

 

I AM He who has justified you. I AM the One who vindicates you. Who will dare contend with you when you realize who you are, My Warrior?

 

I contend with those who contend with you. The devil is a liar. Let Us stand together in the Power of MY Might.

 

You shall not be moved because MY TRUTH is your shield and buckler. Speak to that mountain. Hold up your Shield of Faith.

 

You shall be able to quench ALL the fiery darts of the enemy. Not some, but ALL. His LIES are the fiery darts, Beloved Warrior of Mine. Fear and doubt come to destroy, but your FAITH is ALWAYS rewarded with VICTORY!

 

You shall reject and deflect EVERY LIE by faith and by My Word. Yes, My Child, let your faith roar louder than your fear. So let US go forth as Warriors, I AM stirring up your ZEAL.

 

I make you as BOLD as a Lion. You shall shout unto your God with the voice of triumph! For I AM your Shield, and your exceedingly great Reward.

 

Your God goes forth as THE Mighty One, I ROAR in triumph over the enemy!

 

Keep standing, My Warrior! I AM the Precious Cornerstone on which you stand. You shall not be moved.

 

Return to the Stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.

 

This is your Birthright and your vindication is of Me!”

 

FLINT : Strong’s Hebrew 2496, from chalam (in the sense of hardness); flint — flint(-y), rock.

 

SET IN STONE : it is completely decided and cannot be changed; Cannot be altered, permanent; unbendable, determined, unshakable, relentless, standing pat, insistent, firm, resolute, fixed.

 

BIRTHRIGHT: Hebrew: (bekorah) has to do with both position and inheritance. By birthright, the firstborn son inherited the leadership of the family and the JUDICIAL AUTHORITY OF HIS FATHER. Deuteronomy 21:17 states that he was also entitled to a double portion of the paternal inheritance.

 

Bible Verses

 

“Because the Lord GOD helps Me, I have not been disgraced; therefore I have set My face like FLINT, and I know that I will not be put to shame. The One who vindicates Me is near. Who will dare to contend with Me? Let us confront each other! Who has a case against Me ? Let him approach Me!” Isaiah 50:7-8.

 

“The LORD is a Warrior; Yahweh is His name.” Exodus 15:3.

 

“The LORD shall go forth as a Mighty Man, He shall stir up jealousy like a Man of War: He shall cry, yea, roar; He shall prevail against His enemies.” Isaiah 42:13 KJV.

 

“The LORD goes forth like a Mighty One; He stirs up His zeal like a warrior. He shouts; yes, He roars in triumph over His enemies!” Isaiah 42:13 BSB.

 

“For I proclaim the name of the Lord: ascribe greatness to our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice; righteous and upright is He.” Deuteronomy 32:3-4.

 

“For it stands in Scripture: “See, I lay in Zion a stone, a chosen and precious cornerstone; and the one who believes in Him will never be put to shame.”” 1 Peter 2:6.

 

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD.” Isaiah 54:17.

 

“Indeed, this is what the LORD says: “Even the captives of the mighty will be taken away, and the plunder of the tyrant will be retrieved; I will contend with those who contend with you, and I will save your children.” Isaiah 49:25.

 

“After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”” Genesis 15:1.

 

“Return to the stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare That I will restore double to you.” Zechariah 9:12.

 

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

 

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:10-17.

The LORD’s Voice Will Never Be Silenced

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

“My light will never go out,” says The LORD.

 

“My Voice will never be silenced. My Wisdom will never be outdated and is unsurpassed. The enemy is always at a disadvantage, for I AM the SOVEREIGN.

 

“I have given you spiritual authority, and fully equipped you to conquer. You have spiritual gifts that are unsurpassed. You cannot be defeated, for earthly weapons cannot match what I have given you.

 

“Use them, for they are unfailing, and you cannot fail when you take them up and engage in the warfare that is spiritual,” says The LORD.

 

“The enemy has ordered you to be silent, but I have commanded you to SPEAK,” says The LORD.

 

“The enemy desires to shut you in, but I have commanded you to COME out of obscurity, and be SEEN. The enemy has endeavored to set limits upon you, but I have emboldened you to shake off the bands and freely do the work that I have called you to do.

 

“For I AM with you, and although the battle rages, the enemy breathes out threatening insults, and endeavors to intimidate you, I have given you the power of MY SPIRIT, My sword, My powerful, undefeatable weapons, and you are to stand, fight, overcome, and conquer, and expand My Kingdom on earth as it in heaven, by My SPIRIT,” says The LORD.

How God Feels about Us

By Greg Laurie

 

           

LISTEN 

 

 

 

“May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.”

—Numbers 6:24–26

 

 

 

Sometimes we might wonder whether God is really paying attention. Does He know what we’re going through? Has this caught Him by surprise? Absolutely not. He knows all about it.

 

I wonder if Joseph ever felt as though the Lord had forgotten about him. His brothers sold him into slavery for no good reason. Then he was brought to Egypt, where a man named Potiphar, who was sort of like the head of the Secret Service for the pharaoh, bought him. Potiphar took him into his house, where his crazy wife tried to seduce Joseph.

 

He resisted her advances, but one day she had everyone leave the house. Then she called Joseph over, pulled him down in her bed, and effectively said, “Have sexual relations with me.”

 

Joseph ran away, but Potiphar’s wife falsely accused him of rape. So Joseph went to prison. As he sat there, how easily he could have thought that God had surely forgotten about him. The reality was that God was preparing Joseph for a great work that was yet in his future. He would elevate Joseph into a place of great influence.

 

In Numbers 6 we find a special blessing that God instructed the priests to pronounce over the people: “May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace” (verses 24–26 NLT).

 

These words show us who God is and how He feels toward us. The Lord is watching us. We have His full attention. He’s attentive to us. He’s aware of what we’re going through.

 

God knows what you’re experiencing today. He’s in control of your life right now. And even though it may seem as though He isn’t watching, He actually is.

"Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things"

By Dutch Sheets & Quin Sherrer with Jamie Buckingham

 

 

From Dutch Sheets: The revival God is about to bring will require the efforts of all Believers. Holy Spirit "added" thousands of Believers to the Church in Acts chapters 1-5. However, the word used to describe their growth changed to "multiplied" from chapter 6 onward. What caused this? Ministry shifted from the apostles only to including deacons and Believers in general. Holy Spirit wants to use us all. Our dear friend, Quin Sherrer, speaks powerfully of this:

 

"Shadow Ministry" by Quin Sherrer with Jamie Buckingham

 

By inviting God's abiding presence to overshadow and help us, we can make a difference in the lives of many people. Who knows when you may discover a result of your "shadow ministry" – one that may totally surprise you. You go along doing what you always do. Then boom! Someone tells you how your life impacted him or her, and you had no idea.

 

Several decades ago my writing mentor, Jamie Buckingham, author of more than 40 books, was the keynote speaker at an Aglow International conference; he told this unusual story about a trip he'd made some years earlier to the Sinai Peninsula for book research. He called the book "Shadow Ministry."

 

When Jamie had reached the summit of Mt. Sinai – almost 7,500 feet – he walked over to a white man who was standing around with about a dozen Aborigines and inquired about them. The man said he was a missionary accompanying these men – the first Aboriginal tribe from Papua New Guinea who had ever come to Israel; they came to see where Jesus walked and to Mt. Sinai where Moses received the Ten Commandments. These Aborigines wanted to discover if the places mentioned in the Bible were real or not and would take their report back.

 

They had worked to earn the money to come and had elected these representatives to make this trip. Through this missionary's ministry in New Guinea, there were 700 to 800 Aborigines in this tribal area who now knew Jesus Christ as Lord. He told Jamie he had been in a motorcycle gang in Australia when he read a book by an American author, received the Lord, and was eventually led to going as a missionary to Papua New Guinea.

 

"You wouldn't know an author by the name of Jamie Buckingham, would you?" he asked.

 

"You aren't going to believe what I am about to tell you: I am Jamie Buckingham," he replied.

 

There was much rejoicing and handshaking. The missionary took Jamie over and introduced him to these people he'd won to Jesus. The 83-year-old chief of the tribe, who had tattoos across his cheeks, looked up into Jamie's face and said, "Thank you for casting your shadow over us."

 

Jamie continued his story. "I had sat in my office in Florida with my Bible open. In solitude, I wrote words. Someone gifted in editing worked on it, passed it to another who printed it, then someone else gifted in distribution got it. And the shadow went up across the world, ending up in New Guinea." Notice, it took people with various talents to get the book into the hands of a gang member in Australia, who then became a missionary for Christ.  

 

Jamie challenged us saying, "I wonder if so much that we think is insignificant may not be the most important thing in God's eyes. The Kingdom of God is carried on the shoulders of people who occupy their shadow ministry."1

 

The Bible reference the chief referred to came from Acts 5:15; it's about Believers who laid their sick on beds and mats so that when Peter passed by, at least his shadow might fall on them. All of them were healed. Earlier in Christ's ministry, He took Peter, James, and John on a high mountain where He was transfigured, and a cloud formed, overshadowing them. Father God spoke from that cloud saying, "This is my beloved Son, listen to Him" (Mark 9:7 NASB).

 

"Overshadowed" by Dutch Sheets

 

I explain these two references in my book, "Intercessory Prayer," along with a third passage:

 

Our third example of Holy Spirit's bringing forth life as He hovered or brooded over is found in Luke 1:35, the conception of Christ in Mary. The angel of the Lord came to Mary telling her that she would bear a child. She responded by asking, "'...How can this be since I am a virgin?'" (v. 34).

 

The answer was this: "Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you." "Overshadow" is the Greek word "episkiazo," which means "to cast a shade upon; to envelope in a haze of brilliancy; to invest with supernatural influence." It is, in some ways, a counterpart for the Hebrew word "rachaph," translated "moving" or "hovering" in Genesis 1:2. Thayer says it is used "of the Holy Spirit exerting creative energy upon the womb of the Virgin Mary and impregnating it."

 

The word is only used three times in the New Testament. At the transfiguration of Jesus in Matthew 17:5, the passage says that the cloud of the Lord "overshadowed" them. It is also used in Acts 5:15 when people were trying to get close to Peter – in his shadow – that they might be healed. Have you ever wondered how Peter's shadow could heal someone? It didn't. What was actually happening was that Holy Spirit was "moving" out from Peter – hovering – and when individuals stepped into the cloud or overshadowing, they were healed.2

 

"An Invitation to 'Cast Your Shadow'" by Quin Sherrer

 

Quin goes on to say:

 

When we invite the Lord to overshadow us, like Peter, we can cast a shadow – have supernatural influence – on those with whom we have encounters or connections. To cast is to "send out, radiate, hurl, fling, give off." Let's do it!

 

Maybe you are saying, "I can't do what a well-known author did." No, but you have your own sphere of influence. Years ago, a teenager shared on a Sunday night at our church, teaching us a big lesson. She had been in a juvenile detention facility in our town, she explained, but on weekends had been allowed to visit the homes of our various church families. Now, she was rehabilitated and going home.

 

"You fed me, clothed me, loved me, and best of all, you introduced me to Jesus. I am so thrilled with what Jesus has done for me. I want to thank Him. But you are Him here, so I will thank you," she said. "You are Him here," she repeated over and over, as her index finger pointed out across the congregation.

 

Going home, indeed. She was going home to her parents. One day, she will go to an eternal home with her heavenly Father...because they cast their shadow.

 

Our pastor had dozens of plaques made that read "You Are Him Here" for those of us who wanted to display them in our homes as a reminder that we are Jesus' hands extended to anyone who knocks on our door.  

 

"Christ has no hands on Earth but yours. No feet on Earth but yours, no eyes of compassion on Earth but yours. He has no body on Earth but yours," said Teresa of Avila, a 16th-century nun.

 

Who are we influencing for God? Each of us casts a shadow by the way we live our lives, what we say, how we act toward those with whom we have connections. Someone, somewhere is watching, listening, observing.

 

The great harvest of souls expected soon in America could happen over backyard fences. For years, my New York City friend Janet talked to Sue about Jesus that way. Sue said she wasn't ready to make a commitment. But on the September night, after the Twin Towers fell, she called Janet. She was ready. Janet led her in prayer and discipled her. Soon their weekly prayer meetings included other neighborhood women. I do not think it takes a tragedy to win others to Christ. We can just stay faithful to Holy Spirit's leading and, in time, our shadow ministry will be fruitful.

 

In closing, let's hear Jamie Buckingham's take-away. "You look back across your life and you will remember numbers of people who have let their shadow fall on you. Because of that, you are who you are today." I want to encourage you. Your shadow, perhaps unbeknownst to you, is falling on a number of other people. God is healing and God is blessing because your face is toward Jesus. Ordinary people, doing extraordinary things, through God, for God.

 

"Live under the protection of God Most High and stay in the shadow of God All-Powerful." (Psalm 91:1 CEV)

 

Prayer with Dutch Sheets:

 

Lord, overshadow me with Your presence. Help me, in turn, cast my shadow over those whom You choose. Give me creative ways to do this when there are still areas where social distancing is in effect. Help me not be bashful or intimidated, but give me boldness to speak and act as Holy Spirit guides me.

 

Just as You did with Mary, hover over me until I carry Your presence. I want to radiate the power of Holy Spirit in such strength that lives are changed and Christ is formed in people. Remind us daily, Father, that we are Him here.

 

I ask in Jesus' name. Amen.

 

Our decree: I will be conscious of my influence for Jesus wherever I go.

Refuse To Be Discouraged

By Russ Walden

 

 

 

The Father says today, refuse to be discouraged. Never let discouragement hold you back. Discouragement is insidious in its leavening influence. Reject every morose and negative thought. Fear not. Believe only. If you refuse to accept discouragement, then the prince of this world comes and will find nothing in your heart that he can take advantage of.

 

Courage and trust in who I AM and what I AM doing in your life makes you impervious to the strategy of the enemy to hold you back or keep you down. I say to you again — be encouraged and of a good courage. The courage of heaven is not vain bluster. The courage of heaven is the preamble to the breakthrough you have petitioned Me for in your situation.

 

Cultivate confidence. Dig down into the fallow ground of your heart and mind to break up the clogs of past disappointment. Take My promises like precious seed and plant them in your innermost being. I will cause you to have the seed / fruit / harvest of My promise as though in a day. I will bring the 100-fold return of seed / fruit / harvest into your life when all others are faltering and failing.

 

I have not called you to a place of blistering failure or downturn. I have commissioned you and ordained that you go out and boldly receive all that the Cross affords you. I say to you this day that you are a receiver and a beneficiary of My promises, for this is the purpose why I came into the world — to raise you up as My beloved child and to demonstrate My Goodness and My Character in your life.

FIRE BY NIGHT

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

  

"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]

        ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB

 

 

THE "PROMISED LAND" IS A TYPE AND SYMBOL OF THE KINGDOM

                                                                   

Words of prophecy:

 

*____"Self-righteousness" [spiritual pride] always "appears" to be [has the appearance before others of] doing or saying [seeking after] the right thing but, in reality, its underlying motivation is ALWAYS the exaltation of "self" over others - and the furthering [promoting] of its "own" agendas [instead of My Will].

 

        ...."For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven".... Matthew 5:20 NASB

 

        ...."Departing from there, He went into their synagogue. And a man was there whose hand was withered. And they questioned Jesus, asking, 'Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?' - so that they might accuse Him. And He said to them, 'What man is there among you who has a sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will he not take hold of it and lift it out? 'How much more valuable then is a man than a sheep!

 

So then, it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.' Then He said to the man, 'Stretch out your hand!' He stretched it out, and it was restored to normal, like the other. But the Pharisees went out and conspired against Him, as to how they might destroy Him. But Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. Many followed Him, and He healed them all".... Matthew 12:9-15 NASB

 

        ...."He [Jesus] began saying to His disciples first of all, 'Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known'".... Luke 12:1a-2 NASB

 

        ...."But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders [hypocrites]! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces; for you neither enter yourselves, nor do you allow those who are about to go in to do so".... Matthew 23:13 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven [will enter.] Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you [intimately];depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness'".... Matthew 7:21-23 NASB

 

        ...."Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts, as [happened] in the rebellion [of Israel] and their provocation and embitterment [of Me] in the day of testing in the wilderness, Where your fathers tried [My patience] and tested [My forbearance] and found I stood their test, and they saw My works for forty years. And so I was provoked (displeased and sorely grieved) with that generation, and said, They always err and are led astray in their hearts, and they have not perceived or recognized My ways and become progressively better and more experimentally and intimately acquainted with them.

 

Accordingly, I swore in My wrath and indignation, They shall not enter into My rest. [Ps. 95:7-11.] [Therefore beware] brethren, take care, lest there be in any one of you a wicked, unbelieving heart [which refuses to cleave to, trust in, and rely on Him], leading you to turn away and desert or stand aloof from the living God. But instead warn (admonish, urge, and encourage) one another every day, as long as it is called Today, that none of you may be hardened [into settled rebellion] by the deceitfulness of sin [by the fraudulence, the stratagem, the trickery which the delusive glamor of his sin may play on him].

 

For we have become fellows with Christ (the Messiah) and share in all He has for us, if only we hold our first newborn confidence and original assured expectation [in virtue of which we are believers] firm and unshaken to the end. Then while it is [still] called Today, if you would hear His voice and when you hear it, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion [in the desert, when the people provoked and irritated and embittered God against them]. [Ps. 95:7, 8.] For who were they who heard and yet were rebellious and provoked [Him]? Was it not all those who came out of Egypt led by Moses? And with whom was He irritated and provoked and grieved for forty years?

 

Was it not with those who sinned, whose dismembered bodies were strewn and left in the desert? And to whom did He swear that they should not enter His rest, but to those who disobeyed [who had not listened to His word and who refused to be compliant or be persuaded]? So we see that they were not able to enter [into His rest], because of their unwillingness to adhere to and trust in and rely on God [unbelief had shut them out]. [Num. 14:1-35.]".... Hebrews 3:7-19 The Amplified Translation

 

____The "promised land" is a type and symbol of the Kingdom - as evidenced by the people of Israel [in Moses' day]. Whose failure to enter into the "promised land" was the same as those in this hour who, because of their penchant for the "law" [legalism], love of the world, self-righteousness and unbelief [mistrust], are not able to enter into the Kingdom - and the "fullness" of their precious inheritance [salvation] that awaits therein [lies within that spiritual positioning].

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a Kingdom-people - a people who are found walking in the fullness of our precious inheritance, in Christ. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

To Know His Heart

The Deeper Your Surrender

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The deeper your surrender, the more you are aware of Him. The more closely you follow Him, the closer you are to Him. I would like to share my thoughts on the two words we use to describe our interactions with Him, surrender and obedience.

 

After living in His presence, I am finding them inadequate to describe our interaction with Him.

 

What we surrender is our ignorance of Him as He reveals His heart to us. We are in awe of Him so we hang on every word He says. This is why we follow after Him, our hearts being filled by Him. He is our Daddy God. He reveals this as He calls us His child.

 

In the reality of walking with Him, the words surrender and obedience just don't do justice to the Life He gives, or the soul deep peace of knowing Him.

 

He surrounds us, He protects us, He keeps us from harm. We are seated on the palm of His hand. He fills us and satisfies us with His desire for our life, and in His presence, He brings His will into our heart. What we give up is our place in darkness and torment as we are taken up into His arms.

 

So to say we surrender is to say we open our heart to Him. To say we obey is to say we act on our trust. In His presence, we are filled with all His desire, and that is how He provides for us.

The Lord Said

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Lord said pride is the will to live, to rise up and defend our thoughts of ourself. This is not our condition when we see Him, or what we do as we are taken in His arms. It is in His presence that we know Him, and knowing Him, we trust in Him. It is in His presence we are given Life. We are continually filled with the joy of it, and we are continually grateful to Him.

For Some Time Now

By Kathy Mote

 

For some time now, I have 'released' His Word on another social media. This is what He said to my heart. I hoped each day for more and more people to come hear His Word, but that is not how one changes the world.

 

Something the Lord said to me today released my heart and filled me with joy. He said, I bring my Word to pass by releasing it in your heart. Then I am faithful to bring My will to pass in the Earth.

 

It's not what you say, and it doesn't matter how many hear you. What you are able to do would never be enough. By My Spirit, they will hear Me as My Word is released into every heart.

 

I promised My Kingdom would come. I established that promise in Isaiah's, in Abraham's, and in Mary's hearts to name a few, then I brought My Word to pass as I promised I would. Each time I came and made a promise, I kept My Word Myself. No one else can do this. What is promised, I fulfill.

 

This word is for all those who hold His promises dear. What He has established in your heart is His promise, and that is His to fulfill. We receive by trusting Him. Words cannot describe the joy this brings.

A Word

By Kathy Mote

 

 

 

A word the Lord has asked me to share for those who have perceived themselves to be rejected in recent years. This is about the ministry circles you thought you should be a part of, but were not welcome in.

 

You were not rejected, you were ejected, and it was the hand of the Lord that did this. He removed you to set you aside and hide you from the judgment that is to come. He kept you safe as He humbled your heart.

 

You are not called to endure the more difficult judgment those who rejected you will see in the days to come. He is coming quickly to humble their heart.

 

But you, precious one, have a different heart, and you have been called to walk your path alone with Him. This is precious to Him, and He is enjoying it. As you see how close He is to you, you will know how precious you are to Him. You are not without Him, and you are not alone.

Devotional: God’s Medicine Bottle

By Derek Prince

 

 

 

Proverbs 4:20–22

 

My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.     KJV

 

For many years I have known those three verses from the fourth chapter of Proverbs as “God’s medicine bottle.” God declares that if we will rightly receive His words and His sayings, they will be life to us and health to all our flesh. The marginal translation for the word that is translated “health” is “medicine.” That’s why I say it’s “God’s medicine bottle.”

 

And God says His medicine will provide us with health in all our flesh. In every area of our physical body it will provide health, but remember, the directions are on the bottle. The medicine only works if you take it according to the directions. There are four directions.

 

First, attend to God’s word.

 

Second, incline or bow down your ear and listen to His sayings.

Third, let them not depart from your eyes, keep them before your eyes continually.

 

And fourth, let them settle and abide in the midst of your heart.

If you take the Word of God according to those fourfold directions, you will find, as I did many years ago, that God’s medicine bottle produces just the results that He claims. It brings life and health to all our flesh. I found that after a year on end in a hospital when doctors couldn’t heal me, God’s medicine did the job.

Get Ready! The King is Coming!

By Priscilla Van Sutphin

 

 

I was listening to the “Healing Song” by Andre LeFebvre and as I listened, I felt like dancing, like something stirring in my soul…

 

 

So I played it over and over. And I heard His Voice…

 

[ Sometimes when He wants to romance, He speaks in poetry… ]

 

Get ready to rejoice oh Daughter of Zion,

For the King is coming, to dwell in your midst.

 

Break out the tambourines. Sound the trumpets.

Strum the harp and beat the drums.

For on the wings of the wind He comes.

 

The trees are singing, the flowers are bending down.

[As I heard this could see it in a vision]

All for the King, because He is coming to town.

Rejoice for Your King comes to you suddenly!

 

The world has it’s new king in the wings, but you have yours,

Oh daughter of Zion REJOICE! REJOICE!

 

Sing, Sing a new song, dance a new dance!

For in His steed is even a new prance!

 

Over the waters and over the seas, a new song you hear

It’s the sound of war, the sounds of tumult.

 

But even in the fray, you will proclaim a new day!

 

The King arises with Healing in His wings,

Bones will be set, alignments healed, cancer wanes, and infections disappear.

 

Chains are broken, can you hear?

The sound of chains and shackles falling to the ground.

 

Fear screams out and heaviness goes running,

It’s a wonderful, wonderful sound!

 

GRACE, Grace, wonderful grace flows from the throne,

While the worldly on and on they drone…

 

Ever clamoring for things that don’t fill.

They will get their fill, for you reap what you sow.

 

But for all who love Me, I have a surprise.

They will be filled with just one glimpse of My eyes!

 

As darkness grows, LIGHT descends, blazing glory

Transforming the saints, making them bold,

Like the apostles and saints of old.

 

Fine tuned instruments, that I will play with My Hands,

Bringing in harvest, subduing nations

 

Taking their stands, alongside the King of Glory

Bringing an end to the story of stories!

 

Lo, the winds have changed, stand up and sing!

No more fear, no more hiding in a corner

Fear and self doubt cast out, there will be a new order!

 

The world has theirs, but I also have Mine.

And all is set for the culmination of time.

Untie the bands that have tied up the eagles!

 

And undo the cords that have bound the lions,

Loose them now to fight in the struggle.”

Time for 360° Vision!

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

“Beloved, It is the time of 360 degree vision for My People.

 

Nothing shall be hidden from you as you keep your eyes upon Me. There shall be no blind spots. The enemy’s plans shall be exposed.

 

This is the Time of the Seers, born of the Spirit and not the flesh. There has been a process of maturing, My Child.

 

I declare to you that you are ready. I AM stirring the Nest and you are about to come forth in all of My Glory. Those who wait upon The LORD shall renew your strength. You shall rise up on Wings as Eagles.

 

You have heard, “Birds of a feather flock together.” You are of MY Feather, My Child. Under My Wings you find refuge; My faithfulness is your shield and rampart.

 

I AM bringing others of the same Spirit beside you for such a time as this. You were never meant to fly solo forever, Dear One.

 

Now My War Eagles shall fly in formation to confuse and terrify the enemy. The Season of the Gathering is here.

 

When I speak a Word, it goes out to accomplish it’s purpose and then it returns to Me through your mouth. It is a Divine Circle. Do you see?

 

My Word is Eternal. It is always working. My Word cannot lie. There is no beginning and there will be no end for I AM the Eternal Father, the Everlasting God, your Savior.

 

The eternal Kingdom is one of Extreme Vision. I AM He who sees the end from the beginning. I AM before you and behind you. I have you surrounded.

 

You shall fly in My Circle of Light. You fly upon My Breath, My Ruach. The Wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes.

 

So is everyone who is born of the Spirit. Fear not, My Child. You are BEYOND the enemy’s grasp and ABOVE his field of vision. I have you covered. It is your time, Beloved.

 

The countdown has begun. It is time for Take Off! FLY in the Power of My Might upon the Winds of the Spirit and your eyes shall see enemy’s movements and you shall not be deceived and I shall cause the enemy to fall before you.

 

Unto you that fear My Name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and you shall tread down the wicked ones; they shall be prey for you and they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this,” saith The LORD of Hosts.

 

Outside of human beings, bald eagles have very few natural enemies, and adult eagles have no natural predators.

 

Thermals are updrafts of warm air that rise from the ground into the sky. By flying a spiraling circular path within these columns of rising air, birds are able to “ride” the air currents and climb to higher altitudes while expending very little energy in the process.

 

Eagles have a 340 degree field of vision compared to the 180 degrees of we humans. The retina of an eagle’s eye has very sensitive light-detecting cells and their astounding depth of vision allows them to focus in like a strong telephoto lens. Eagles have the ability to see colors more vividly than humans can. They can even see ultraviolet light and pick out more shades of one color. (wildrevelation.com)

 

Bible Verses :

 

“As an eagle stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, He spread His wings to catch them and carried them on His pinions.” Deuteronomy 32:11.

 

“The wind blows where it wishes. You hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” John 3:8.

 

“He will cover you with His feathers; under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day.” Psalm 91:4-5.

 

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be upon His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on the throne of David and over His kingdom, to establish and sustain it with justice and righteousness from that time and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of Hosts will accomplish this.” Isaiah 9:6-7.

 

“How great are His signs, how mighty His wonders! His Kingdom is an eternal kingdom; His Dominion endures from generation to generation.” Daniel 4:3.

 

“But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.” Malachi 4:2-3.

The Enemy is Terrified

By June Sheltrown Reinke

 

 

“The enemy is terrified, knowing that his days are numbered,” says The LORD.

 

“He has no peace, no joy, no rest, and no hope. When I pour out my indignation against the workers of iniquity and the children of wrath, there will be no place for them to escape.

 

“Justice and righteousness belong to me, and I will not allow unrighteousness to reign. I AM coming soon,” says The LORD.

 

“I will not give up the earth that belongs to me to the evil ones, and I will cause the meek to inherit it,” says The LORD.

 

“They will rule and reign with Me, and there will be NO MORE destruction, NO more disease, NO more unrighteousness, NO more unrest, No more injustice, and NO MORE pain!

 

“You will shine brightly in MY kingdom that is without end. I will reward you for your faithfulness, dry all your tears, and lavish you with treasures you could never imagine,” says The LORD.

 

“Take heart, for I AM not finished with you yet,” says The LORD.

 

“I have need of you. I will avenge you of your adversaries, restore you, heal your wounds and promote you.

 

“I will pour out My Holy SPIRIT and FIRE, and rain down miracles, signs and wonders that you will witness.

 

“I will use you for My Glory, and your heart will sing as you reap a bountiful harvest for My Kingdom that is without end, and the days of your mourning will suddenly END,” says The LORD.

Why We Need God’s Grace

By Greg Laurie

           

LISTEN 

 

 

 

“Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.”

 

—Matthew 6:11–12

 

 

Let’s imagine for a moment that you loaned something valuable to someone, and they ended up destroying it. If you said, “I want you to get me a brand-new one,” that would be justice.

 

But let’s say that you dealt with them in mercy instead. You said, “You don’t have to get me a brand-new one. I forgive you.”

 

Then again, let’s say that you dealt with them in grace. You wouldn’t insist they give you a new one. Rather, you’d buy them their own and then take them out for dinner, too. That’s an example of grace, which is God’s unmerited favor.

 

The Bible tells us, “God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it” (Ephesians 2:8–9 NLT).

 

Why do we need God's grace? Because we sin every day. We sin more than we think we do. In fact, the Bible says, “If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth” (1 John 1:8 NLT).

 

Yes, sin is when we think a lustful thought or we lose our temper. But sin also can be when we say no to the Lord’s promptings to read His Word or pray or share the gospel with someone. It’s knowing what we should do but not doing it.

 

So we need God’s grace every day. Jesus taught us to pray, “Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us” (Matthew 6:11–12 NLT).

 

Just as surely as we need daily bread or provision from God, we need daily forgiveness as well. That’s where grace comes in.

"Everyone Will Be SHOCKED by the Surprise Ending"

By Wanda Alger

 

 

When we eventually witness the finale to this global drama we've been enduring, I believe EVERYONE is going to be shocked and unnerved by the surprise ending. When the revelations break and the truth is told, EVERY individual is going to be humbled and in awe. We are going to realize that each of us has only seen IN PART.

 

The supernatural realities of the Kingdom will be revealed as never before. That which God Himself has been orchestrating, from generations past, will cause every knee to bow and acknowledge that He alone has the authority and final call over the affairs of men and the plots of the enemy.

 

"...No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him." (1 Corinthians 2:9)

 

NO ONE has fully understood what God has planned for us. None of us can fathom the depth of His thoughts as He has been writing this story from the beginning of time in anticipation of this moment. This has nothing to do with vindicating man or proving a point. It has everything to do with God vindicating His own name and claiming His rightful place.

 

"For My own sake, for My own sake, I do it, for how should My name be profaned? My glory I will not give to another." (Isaiah 48:11)

 

Stand Fast! The Season Is About to Change

 

Stand fast in this moment of anticipation and know that even in this "dark winter" we have not been alone! Heaven's armies are backing up the earth realm because of the rising swell of God's people declaring that HE ALONE is God! The collective cry for justice, truth, and righteous rule reached Heaven's ears a long time ago, and they have been drawing closer ever since.  

 

The false rulers of this age on their man-made thrones are about to be eradicated and replaced. This dark season is about to be a long-lost memory and but one page in the history books. "SPRING" is here and it is Heaven's TIME for NEW LIFE and NEW BEGINNINGS. The season is about to change!

 

This will be a collective cleansing and humbling in order to form a more perfect union under the Lordship of Christ. The sovereign right of the Champion of Hosts will overshadow every other claim to ownership. HIS is the only true authority that has the power to change the affairs of men and overcome every scheme of Hell.

 

No one can predict how it will unfold. We only know it will. God has been preparing us all along for this epic demarcation in history. Where the enemy is hoping that we come to a disastrous BREAKDOWN, the Lord of Hosts is preparing us for a global BREAKTHROUGH.

 

Remain fixed in this hope that redemption draws near and the world as we know it will never be the same. The finale is quickly approaching, and the Master of Ceremonies will reveal all.

"The Birthing of a Miracle: Revival Is Coming to China!"

By Sean Song

 

 

Testimony: Our Miracle Baby at Elijah List Conference

 

By 2015, I had been in the United States for thirteen years and a Christian for the same amount of time. In 2006, I married my wife, and like many other Chinese couples, we had every intention of building a family. However, by 2015 we approached ten years of barrenness. We wanted a child, but we simply could not have one. In search of healing for my wife's infertility, I traveled to many cities within the US to join healing and prophetic conferences.

 

A final visit to an Elijah List conference in Oregon in January 2016 sealed the deal for me. There, a well-known prophet named Dutch Sheets spoke to the crowd and said, "Today, you come here not by coincidence. It is God who leads you here and from today on, you will hear God speaking to you like you never have before." I believed these words.

 

During our lunch break, I wandered to a nearby store and entreated of the Lord to speak to me. When I sat down in a chair outside of a Christian bookstore, my eye caught a Peanuts calendar sitting on display. The cover said, "Peanuts 2016 Family Planner." Suddenly, God spoke clearly to me: "2016, plan your family; you will have a child this year." I was astonished! I had never heard God speaking to me so clearly, and He just said I was going to have a child that year! I immediately called my wife and she encouraged me to buy the calendar as a memorial.

 

Meanwhile, I went back to China to visit my family in February 2016. My mother, who still worshiped Buddha, had been desperately praying to all kinds of idols to help us have a baby. I had been trying to preach the Gospel to her since 2003, but with trivial effect. Months later, back in the USA, we continued waiting for our miracle. One day in desperation, I prayed, "Dear Holy Spirit, those people in Pentecostal churches always teach that we should have an intimate relationship with You. Now, I have prayed to both the Father and Jesus many times and I do not know when this pregnancy is going to happen. Can you ask the Father and Jesus for me when this will happen?"

 

That night I had a dream. A woman (representative of the Holy Spirit) pointed to the back of a male figure (Jesus). She said to me, "Did He not tell you that you will have a child next month?" I woke up the next morning and told my wife about this dream. Two weeks later, I received a text from her that read, "You have won the lottery!" On May 28, 2016, my wife found out that she was miraculously pregnant! (This was 4 months after being at the Elijah List Conference!) Our miracle baby girl, Elim, was born healthy and beautiful in early 2017.

 

This leads to the next miracle: My parents were astonished with this miracle of our baby and they both accepted Jesus as their Savior.

 

What Is A Great Revival?

 

Before attending the Elijah List conference in 2016, I read a book by one of the speakers, Chuck Pierce. In his book, "God's Unfolding Battle Plan," Pierce recalls a visitation he had with the Lord in the 1980s. God told him what China would be like in 2006 and that there would be a great revival coming to China in the future. It would also spread to the world.

 

I was just going to the conference to receive healing for my wife, but God had much more in store! That day I received three things: 1) a prophetic promise directly from God that I would have a baby (which came true); 2) an anointing to clearly hear God henceforth (which started that day and has continued); and 3) the beginning of my commission to be part of this soon-coming revival to China. (Photo via Piqsels)

 

When I came home from the conference, the Lord began to speak with me more about this revival. One day I was walking the streets of Washington DC, thinking about this great revival. Suddenly, the Holy Spirit asked me, "What is a great revival?"

 

I was surprised that I again heard Him speak so clearly! I immediately replied in my spirit, "I heard that one out of ten Chinese people have converted to Christianity. Isn't this already a great revival?" Immediately, the Holy Spirit asked another question, "How about two out of ten?" I was shocked again by the clarity with which the Holy Spirit spoke. In a very short time, I had a calculation. That would be the equivalent of another 100 Million Chinese people.

 

At that moment, I believe the Holy Spirit intended to challenge me with His questions to open my perspective. Please note that I do not think He only meant that two out of ten Chinese people will be saved. Bob Jones once prophesied that one billion souls would be harvested in the soon-coming world revival. For me, it is not hard to imagine that at least 100 million Chinese would be included in this number.

 

Sometime later, I met a Korean prophet who confirmed what the Holy Spirit spoke to me on that day. He said, "God will have you go back to China to teach the Word of God all over and be part of this revival." He also said that the 21st century is a century that God will use to evangelize China.

 

Prophetic Dreams of China's Future Revival

 

On January 11, 2016, shortly after coming back from the Elijah List conference, I had the following dream. There were four scenes.

 

In the first scene, I found myself at a construction site in China. A "keeper" (a guard-like man) was there with a roll/register in his hand. I got the impression that he was an angel who managed the Book of Life. I asked this man if a relative who had gone missing in China was on this list of names. After looking, he replied, "No." I felt so sorry for this relative.

 

In the second scene, I experienced great chaos and upheaval. I was tossed upside down and I discerned pending destruction as I watched a steel stick from the construction site fall from a building. By the end of this scene, I saw a building only partly constructed.

 

In the third scene, my wife and I were in a high glass tower with windows like the ones you see in big cities. It seemed we were a having a Christian meeting there when suddenly we received a report that we were surrounded by persecutors. Arguments arose among the people in the building. Some insisted to go down and some said to go up. I insisted on heading upward, so up we went.

 

In the fourth scene, my wife and I miraculously escaped into a residential building. I told my wife that no one would see us since we appeared just like the residents. As we walked downstairs I felt peace, and a lion-like animal the size of a cat appeared among us. I carried the animal and it seemed calm and meek until we hit a great wall that we could not pass through. Suddenly, the small lion-type animal arose with great strength to help us roll the wall over. Immediately, I saw several horses gallop speedily and powerfully, and a great pasture lay before my eyes. It was powerful! It reminded me of something resembling a great breakthrough or an extreme revival.

 

Stages of the Coming Revival

 

My interpretation, coupled with the interpretation of a fellow Believer, is detailed below. This dream represents several stages of the coming revival:

 

First, the construction site represents a work in progress. An incomplete or half-erected building symbolizes that a work has begun but is not complete. The angelic being keeping track of lives demonstrates God's involvement and desire. It shows that their salvation is important to God. My attempt to find a dead person can represent the spiritual state of many persons in China, and my sadness shows God's feelings regarding this matter.

 

Second, the sudden and great chaos in the beginning and throughout is representative of the shaking that will take place. Authorities and systems that have been allowed to stand for a time will fall, and only what is in line with God's Kingdom will remain (a building left partly standing). The Church will also go through immense testing and during this test, some may fall.  

 

The third scene is symbolic of a few things. God will give favor to those who are spreading the Gospel and discipling persons in China. This is representative of the high tower in which my wife and I were hosting a Bible study. Although persecution will arise and has even already, God has given His people the wisdom to see it coming (the glass windows). Wisdom for escape and a battle plan will be granted to those who are led by the Spirit and commissioned by Him.

 

In the fourth scene of the dream, wisdom is represented by my ability to discern among those panicking and unsure that our escape from the building would be by climbing upward instead of down. Climbing upward is also significant of looking Heavenward to keep our eyes fixed on the Lord and tuned into His plans. Persecution and shaking naturally entices us to look at our surroundings and environment; we are tempted to descend instead of ascending. To deal with the situation, faith must move Christians rather than fear. The only way to guarantee supernatural delivery is to continue upwards, and the Lord will surely rescue such persons. God will also grant cover when necessary. This is demonstrated by us blending in and appearing like the other residents.

 

Finally, the lion-like animal represents the presence of the Spirit of Christ which will accompany those He calls His own. He will grant them peace amidst the turmoil, and they shall not be afraid. Carrying the lion-like animal is also symbolic of being equipped with the Spirit of Christ. This scene represents both the life of Christ in us and the help He offers. Christ is both meek and mighty. If a wall stands in our way, Christ will arise with power and strength to make a path for our feet by rolling the wall away.

 

With Christ, Christians commissioned by Him will demolish forces in our path to make it possible for breakthrough to be released (represented by the horses and pasture). As speedy and powerful as the horses were, so will the awakening be. It will also be pleasant (green pasture).

 

3-D Vision: Dancing, Celebrating and Worshipping - On the Streets of China!

 

In March 2020, I was taken into another vision. This was the most vivid 3D-type of vision I have had thus far. In it, I saw a great revival happening in China. It was bursting out all over! People were dancing, celebrating, and worshiping God all over the streets of China.

 

In the next scene, I was brought into a heavenly meeting where many saints in glory, including Chinese and Westerners, were meeting. There was a Chinese lady who gave me a tour of the place and she specifically told me that this revival was something she had never seen when she was on Earth.

 

In the end, angels had bound an evil political spirit and I saw that a great political change would come to China after this great revival. China will become a democratic nation and they will worship God.

 

Revival is Here!

 

I feel the Lord is going to bless His Church with a corporate miracle baby (like He blessed me and my wife) – which is the revival of the Church. We often hear that before the dawn, the darkness is the greatest. Just as the Lord once appeared to me in great power and light and laid His hand on me, I sense His hand is on China right now. He is about to release a great awakening to China, and a mass exodus of Chinese people will come out of darkness into the light.

 

May the Church endure in intercession and prayer. Many will be brought out of Egypt into the Kingdom of Light, and people will see miracles happening across America, China, and all over the world. Political shifts will take place and many people will turn their hearts to God. Revival will break out!

 

God bless you. God bless America, and God bless China. God bless this coming revival.

FIRE BY NIGHT

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

  

"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]

 

        ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB

 

 

UNGODLY COUNSEL VERSUS GODLY COUNSEL

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*____If one is found pursuing [seeking after, choosing] something other than My Will then they will NOT be found "abiding" in My Counsel [Wisdom]. It must be clearly understood by each and every one of My children that "self-desire" [maintained] in ANY form will ALWAYS lead one away from godly counsel [and from My Presence] while godly desire [maintained] will ALWAYS lead one closer to Me - with a heart that is "receptive" to godly counsel in whatever form it issues forth [from My Spirit].

 

       For from My anointed words [and, indeed, My very Presence] there shines forth sufficient light [revelation] and Grace [empowerment] to keep one on the narrow path [of perfect obedience] and, at the same time, "convict" [both expose and interfere with the plans of ] the heart of the one who has strayed from My perfect purpose [Will] for their life and ministry. Truly I say to you, in this most critical and glorious hour one will be found exactly where "they", themselves, have chosen to be [the Kingdom or the world; abiding in godly counsel or abiding in ungodly counsel].

 

"counsel" - advice or instruction given in helping direct the judgement or conduct of another; interchange of ideas as to future procedure;

 

        ...."How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law [Word] of the LORD, and in His law [Word] he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers".... Psalms 1:1-3 NASB

 

        ...."For every wrongdoer hates [loathes, detests] the Light, and will not come out into the Light but shrinks from it, lest his works [his deeds, his activities, his conduct] be exposed and reproved. But he who practices truth [who does what is right] comes out into the Light; so that his works may be plainly shown to be what they are - wrought with God [divinely prompted, done with God's help, in dependence upon Him]".... John 3:20-21 The Amplified Translation

 

       The root of ALL "ungodly" counsel is rooted and grounded in "self-agenda" in the heart of the one giving the ungodly counsel - whereas, ALL godly counsel is rooted and grounded in Love and a revelation of the Father's Will [Word].

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who have come to abide in Your Counsel - a people, in whom, Your Grace and Wisdom abounds. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
