God Always Uses a Man to Change a Generation.. but seldom is that passed on

I have been studying the nature of how God uses a Man or Woman or a Couple to accomplish his purposes.  How those of influence are in the spotlight for a while and then God moves on. 

In fact in studying the way it seems to work, there is little biblical evidence of being able to pass on the kind of leadership that God institutes.  Sure there are a few examples, Elijah and Elisha... David - Solomon,  but many fewer than you would imagine.

It seems as if God raises up a Man (I'll use the male connotation, but He uses women too) and causes the spiritual nature of the times to change.  That powerful man of God is placed in a time and circumstance where obedience causes greatness to emerge to lead to higher levels.

This all came to light for me today as I contemplated the story of Gideon, the 300 and the eventual return to Idolatry that the nation experience.  You can read it in the Amplified as I did and see what I saw.. Judges 6-8 

What is most interesting is Gideon had 30 sons (and supposedly several daughters) none of which were anointed or able to pick up the mantle God had available. After the death of Gideon Israel fell away.

In our modern day many ministries have thrived under greatness, men used of God to change everything.  However the next generation was not able to sustain the anointing and call on the Man God had chosem.  Destiny comes from on high. He always uses a man or woman.  Not a board. Not a denomination.  Not a group... but one man who people look to as a representation of God's grace released on the earth.  I used to say, nameless and faceless.  Its true in influence, but there is always a man (or woman)

Oral Roberts.  Jim Bakker.  Smith Wigglesworth.  Martin Luther.  John G Lake.  William Branham.  Kenneth Hagin.  Lester Summerall.  Where are the scion's of these men of God? 

Even in prior generations.  Finney, John Calvin, George Whitfield, Johnathan Edwards, Evan Roberts, WilliamSeymour, Charles Parnham.   They seem to have no kin beyond themselves who made a difference..

It's not that they wouldn't have loved to pass it on to their progeny .. but there is little record of success.

There are exceptions where God DOES use the next generation, but not in the same way.  Joel Osteen does not carry the same mantle of his father.  Franklin Graham doesn't carry the same anointing his Dad did.  Remember Liberty Baptist church?  Who is there now?  TBN is about to discover this truth.

What this says to me is; your ministry destiny be to be a call from God.  It has to be ordained first of HIM and the perhaps recognized by others.  IF the call is legitimate what others recognize is insignificant. Your call is your anchor.

We all know the saying, God has no grandchildren.  It's even more true in the ministry.  Just because a man brings a great move of God, it's unlikely anyone will be able to continue it.  How many great ministries from 60 years ago are still alive?  One generation and POOF.  It's not that God lifts his hand, it's that the potential for people to gravitate towards a man over God.. that is disallowed.  Our God is a Jealous God.

Once many years ago when a great man of God, a musician died in a plane crash.  I admired him a lot.  Met his widow.  I said something that I regretted later. I said, "Father allowed this so the admiration and following he had would be disbursed greater into the world".  I don't actually believe that...but there is evidence to support the idea. That is what happened in 72 AD.  The Diaspora... and from it the spreading of the Gospel over the whole earth.

IF you are one called to be a world changer, be about your fathers business, if not be content to carry out the great commission the best you can.  There  is no shame in not being one of the few that God calls out to change a nation.  I know a few... but many fewer than you would imagine.  Many have greatness for a while.  Yet like Solomon the son of David who carried on.. many seem to move out from under the call of God.

It's still happening.  Don't get too comfortable with the anointing and appointing of God in your life.. he giveeth and he can taketh away.

Blessed be the Name of the Lord.

People looking for the Devil where he isn't....

Many people are constantly on the alert for demonic things, people, actions, deceptions and activities.

The problem is when you label something as "Of the Devil" you cease all capacities to deal with that for the future.

Such are the pronouncements people make about certain preachers, teachers, book writers and Televangelists.  I don't follow them much any more. If certain ones come on the radio when I am traveling (Ravi Zacharias) I will listen.  Others, not so much.

The fact that some are profoundly wrong doesn't mean they aren't being used of God.  We are all on a journey.  Early in my Christian life I listened to and studied certain preachers today that I no longer believe were on the money.  YET they were helpful in my finding truth as I have found it.

This is my concern with seminary. With denominational seminary.  It becomes a closed loop.  One that has no potential of bringing people into higher understanding.   It creates intentional blindness like Saul had before the scales fell off. Worse it becomes a place where those who are outside a tiny bit of the orthodoxy prescribed by those professors and teachers is automatically rejected.   I am thankful for those brave men and women of the reformation who endured even martyrdom to proclaim fresh revelation.

The argument by those who would suppose to teach is that what others are teaching isn't "Biblical" or Orthodox.  Like somehow an angel of light came down and gave them a measuring stick.

Guess what one did...except it wasn't an Angel, His name is HOLY SPIRIT.  Most of those who are looking under every bed for a demon in other preachers and teachers are usually those bereft of the infilling and overflow of the Spirit of God who's prime manifestation in their lives is LOVE.

Sure there is a place to be careful, but don't crush those still on the journey just a little back in line from you.

It's a process.  One that must we worked out according to scripture with fear and trembling.

IF you seriously want to look for the devil and his demons they are actually easy to spot,  They are the ones who are (according to scripture) Killing, Stealing, Destroying, Lying, Turning People from the path, Tempting people into sin, amplifying flesh over Spirit and anything that takes one's eyes from the Father of All.  IF you are being pushed away from God, tempted and oppressed of the devil... that's your demon right there.  Not some poor schmo who is trying to preach a gospel message but has a few things wrong...

And they aren't under your bed.

Word for 3-30-14

I hear the Lord say this morning:

"You can do nothing without Me.  Your attempts at self preservation, protection, provision or perpetuity is meaningless without My involvement. 

Yet you run to hide from my sight and say, is There even a God who knows?   Are His ears stopped up?  Why doesn't He respond?

My child, I am responding. I see every single cell in your body. I see every hair on your head.  I hear every thought you think.  Every word you say.  I am passionate about your future.  I will never harm you.  You can harm yourself but it is not my purpose in you.

No matter what others say or don't say about you, I say this.  You are mine.. called by my name, I will never ever by any means ever leave, forsake, forget or turn My back on you.  I am always there even if the clouds of your circumstance seems to mask My presence. 

The enemy will try to convince you otherwise... yet you are ever before MY eyes.  Even if no one else sees. 

Walk forward, keep going, it seems futile in the flesh, yet there is a day... a glorious day and your destiny is contained there.  No one may ever know your name except ONE.. ME.. your Father in Heaven, the I AM the one who created all of the heavens and the earth. 

I see you and you are not forgotten."

“Church” is About to Change – Dramatically - Wanda Alger

I was inside the Transformer. The chair I was sitting in was being skyrocketed upwards while all around me, portions of this massive structure were being clicked into place as various parts of the ceilings and walls were being shifted and moved into new places and formations. I was inside this building as it was going through a sudden and dramatic Transformation of the supernatural kind. But this wasn’t a Transformer Toy. It was The Church.

This was the dream I had last week on a Saturday night. This experience was sudden and shocking. The structure I was sitting in was like a massive cathedral with vaulted ceilings, ornate fixtures, overhanging arches and intricate detail. It was like the churches of ages gone by, yet it was contemporary. I was sitting with others awaiting a presentation when the shift happened. I looked upwards and saw overhanging arches in the ceiling begin to come apart and change direction. All around the upper corners I saw sections of the wall and ceiling come apart in clean and distinct fashion as if on cue. They were changing the entire shape of the structure and reconfiguring the essence of the building.

As I watched this take place, I began to move. My chair began to suddenly move upwards as if on a hydraulic lift. I had to hang as my speed increased rapidly and I continued to hear the clicking and clanging noises of the transformation all around me. As I continued upwards I saw the building around me move downwards as I saw floor after floor pass beside me as it continued to shift and move. When I didn’t think I could go any higher I quickly began to move backwards in a downward motion realizing that it felt like an enormous Ferris wheel ride! I never saw anyone else. All I could do was hang on so as not to fall off my chair.

This entire structure was being instantly transformed and all I could do was watch and experience the ride. It was exhilarating, yet fearsome. When we speak of “transformation” in the Church, I believe this is the kind that heaven is talking about. What is coming to this nation is not just a slow and steady change of bettering our conditions either socially or politically. It is going to be a sudden and dramatic change that is so profound and so distinct, that the world will take notice. No one will be able to take credit for it and no one will be able to explain it. It will be totally God. And He’s getting us ready for the ride of our lives!

But, that wasn’t the end of my dream… Even as I was catapulted in my chair, I thought of my children. They are grown now, but in the dream I was immediately transported to our family van. I was inside the van as this transformation continued and I looked out the window to see my 3 children, all much younger, sitting outside in lawn chairs attached to a very flimsy metal carrier! Though the swirling and shifting were continuing all around us, they were sitting on these lawn chairs just looking around like curious kids, also enjoying the ride. I was anxious for them and started to open the side door to bring them inside. However, when I did, I realized that we were in swirling water…SOAPY water! I had to shut the door right away to keep it out. Even though I hated to leave them outside, I had the distinct impression that they were fine and to LET THEM BE.

I tried to crawl over the seats to get back to the driver’s seat and saw out the window that we were moving and floating in soapy water. It was like we were going through a huge WASH CYCLE! Then I woke up. The Scripture that came to mind was Ephesians 5:25-27 where it says that, “…Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.”

I believe this is the MEANS to the end of TRANSFORMATION to the Church. God is cleansing the Church and removing every hindrance and roadblock to His coming. God is not just about transforming cities or communities. Ultimately, HE IS TRANSFORMING THE CHURCH. It is only when the Church, His Bride, becomes who She was intended to be, that true and lasting transformation can happen in our nation. It is also very personal. This transformation must first affect us as believers and then our families. Many people are being tested right now; tests of faith, discernment, spiritual authority and relationships. We are being tested in our resolve to be a covenant community that lives above offense and differences of opinion. God is cleansing us of FEAR and COUNTERFEIT Lovers. He is washing us and calling us to HIS WORD so that we will have a solid foundation to build on.

He is also looking at a much bigger picture than we are. He always thinks generationally. There is a young generation that is watching (my kids on the lawn chairs). They are looking for something real and powerful. They have a child-like faith that God is preparing to receive the fullness of the Spirit coupled with the power of His Word. They will be ones who will do exploits and charge into places we never dreamed of in order to advance the Kingdom. We are called to let them go and let Him have His way with them. They are not ours, after all, but His. We simply need to let Him complete this work of cleansing and purifying. He is coming for a FAMILY that is healthy and whole. He is teaching us how to rest in Him and let go of our control. It may seem messy, but it’s HIS mess!

Get ready, Church. Things are not going to look the same once He comes to manifest His presence through His Bride. The old will pass away and the new will come. Just be sure to buckle up…and enjoy the ride.

Todd Bentley: The Lord Said, "The Church Is On The Edge Now of The Great Harvest"

Todd BentleyI had a powerful vision and encounter with the Lord recently during a church service at Queen City Church (QCC) in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Vision
I saw a great harvest field. It was like a field I had never seen before and very large. There were many bundles (sheaves) of wheat already gathered. The wheat was white, ripe, and golden. I remember the sun shining down and how blue and clear the sky was. My heart yearned to be in this field. I said, "Lord, I'm a harvester. I've been in the harvest for many years. Why am I not in this field?"
We were standing on the edge of the field. I felt the Father (Lord of the harvest) say, "The Church is on the edge now of the great harvest at the end of the age" (see Matthew 13:24-43).
The Hammer
HammerIn the prophetic experience, the Lord gave me a hammer. I thought, "A hammer, Lord? Why not a sickle or a sword?"
The Holy Spirit spoke to me saying, "All you need is a fire and a hammer to break through the strongholds and penetrate the hearts of the religious minds and darkness of the people." (Photo via Flickr)
"Is not My word like a fire?" says the LORD, "and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?" Jeremiah 23:29
In the vision, the hammer was called "George Whitefield." He was part of the first Great Awakening, and many referred to him as the "field preacher." Sometimes crowds of 20,000 to 30,000 would gather, and he would preach the Gospel with a booming voice. No amplification system was needed. George Whitefield had charisma, and his voice, according to many accounts, could be heard for over five miles.
Edge of the greatest harvestI saw in the vision that the Lord was speaking about being on the "edge of the greatest harvest." We are now stepping into the fields. I also knew by the Spirit that some of the greatest revivals would literally be in open fields again. I believe the grace that was on Whitefield, Jonathan Edwards, and the first Great Awakening is now upon us in a new season of harvest and preaching. (Photo via Flickr)
We are being commissioned into a new season of harvest like we have never seen before. In this vision, we were stepping into the great harvest after many years of being trained and equipped. More than ever, we are entering into a reaping season. We are moving from just sowing and seed time to a harvest of all the seeds of promise.

Bob Jones' Passing
For many years, Bob Jones was a spiritual father in my life and ministry and also for countless others around the world. His death was on the day of love (Valentine's Day). On the night of his passing, there was a small earthquake in South Carolina.
CNN: "A 4.1 magnitude earthquake struck Friday night in west central South Carolina, the U.S. Geological Survey reported... The quake was centered 7 miles (12 kilometers) west-northwest of Edgefield..."
One prophetic voice said that Bob Jones' death prophesied there is a "door standing open in Heaven" (Revelation 4:1). The door is now open to the great harvest. We are at the edge of the field (Edgefield).
Hollywood And The Bible
The Bible SeriesWe are entering into a new season of harvest, and God is giving many a fresh revelation of the Cross and true grace so we can be a part of this great movement. Even Hollywood is calling this year "The Year of The Bible."
I believe a large part in the coming great harvest is God anointing and using the arts and entertainment. Even reality TV shows and series are moving to more shows like Duck Dynasty and the History channel's The Bible Series. There is a new interest in America and the world for truth and The Bible. It's being preached in the Church, and it needs to be. It is also being preached through a revival media. I believe Hollywood plays a big part in spreading the message of the Cross.
Accelerated Harvest
I'm talking about accelerated breakthrough and harvest. A time of supernatural harvest of all things sown. I love the story of Peter and the supernatural harvest of fish after he toiled all night and caught nothing. Think of the times in your life when it seemed like nothing was happening; you labored and worked so hard for the Lord. Then one word from Jesus and you are reaping so much that immediately the nets are now breaking.
The Miraculous Draught of Fishes by James TissotAnd Simon answering said unto him, "Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at Thy word I will let down the net."
And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. Luke 5:5-7 KJV (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)
This was a harvest so great that Peter's breakthrough enabled others to step into his blessing. He had to signal for the other boats to help him. Could you imagine getting such a breakthrough that it would be enough to bless you and the rest of Body of Christ?
In Him,
Todd Bentley

Therory without Practice is Dead.. Apostle David Rogers

DELIVERED FROM SPIRITUAL THEORY: There is a dangerous spirit working its way throughout the church community. This demon is masked as INTELLIGENCE but is heavily influenced by PHILOSOPHY and NEW AGE SCIENTIFIC THEORY. The "GOSPEL" that they preach uses VERBIAGE, WORDS and PHRASES congruent to the CHRISTIAN FAITH but is void of ANY APPLICATION or DEMONSTRATION. (1 Corinthians 2:1-5) FAITH is not merely intellectual assent to grasp terminologies that have no APPLICATION nor POWER to be PERFORMED. But real FAITH, exercises SPIRITUAL POWER to AUTHENTICATE its PRESENCE. (Mark 16:15-20)

BE CAREFUL!! Many are PREACHING from their MINDS and not the SPIRIT OF GOD. They are preaching messages that they have NO AUTHORITY to preach and NO AUTHORITY to PERFORM. JESUS didn't just SPEAK WORDS, HE DEMONSTRATED POWER. CHRISTIANITY is a POWER and DEMONSTRATION FAITH, not a mere KNOWLEDGE and CONVERSATION FAITH. It is CLEAR from the last instructions that Jesus left the Disciples, "Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are ENDUED WITH POWER FROM ON HIGH". (Luke 24:49) He did not tell them to immediately go to PREACH without POWER. EXPERIENTIAL KNOWLEDGE and AUTHORITY is the KEY that separates CHRISTIANITY from RELIGION. (Acts 10:38) If there is NO POWER and DEMONSTRATION, its NOT from JESUS!!! ADR

The Church Father God is Seeking (and finding too few)

There are scriptural admonitions that demonstrate God's direction towards the Kind of Church that will worship his way... God is seeker sensitive:  He is seeking those who will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth

1. Deep Rich Passionate Worship

This church has responsive worship often marked by lifting of hands, verbal praise such as “Hallelujah”, “glory to God”, “praise You Jesus”, “I love you Lord”, “thank you Lord”, singing in the Spirit.  Worshiping with their whole heart, voice and being.  While it is orderly, it is exuberant and meaningful.  It will move a person in every way.
In Psalm 30:11, the psalmist says, “You turned my wailing into dancing.” Psalm 149:3 encourages the use of dancing to worship God: “Let them praise his name with dancing!” Likewise, Psalm 150:4 urges, “Praise him with tambourine and dancing!”
Psalm 47:1, 2: “Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the voice of triumph! For the Lord Most High is awesome; He is a great King over all the earth.”
Psalm 32:11 (NKJV), "Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!"
1 Corinthians 14:14-15 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding.   

2. Spiritual Hunger for More of Everything God Has to Offer
Zeal in the things of God and a desire to read, study and meditate on the Word of God.
Sometimes it's overwhelming and causes unusual reactions.  Psalm 42: 7-8 Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life.
Psalm 119:162 I rejoice at Your Word as one who finds great treasure.
2 Timothy 2:15 (KJS) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.
" transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."   Romans 12:2

3. Desire to be a witness to others as you live out your Love of God
No one can impart what they don't possess.  If someone tries to intellectually be a witness for Christ, they will fail.  Witness is a Noun.  If we have not speak of what we have seen and heard, you are without the power to witness.
Acts 1:8 "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."     Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.   1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,    Acts 4:20 For we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.”

4. Desire for Fullness in Fruit of the Spirit and the greatest motivation of all: Love for others
Father Calls those who are called by his name to seek and find the treasures of heaven.  To become everything He created us for on this side of the Veil.  It is not enough to just be saved and go to heaven.  We are here for a purpose.  Finding it and walking it out in Love is the highest motivation.
1 Corinthians 12:31 But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way.
1 Corinthians 14:1 Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.
1 Timothy 2:4 Who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
 Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
 Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
 2 Peter 1:16 For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

5. Desire for a Manifestation of the fullness of Holy Spirit:
1 Corinthians 12:7-11 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

The kind of Church in God's will is open, and gives opportunity, to Holy Spirit and His fullness in its services. That manifestation could be, prophesy, laying on of hands, healing, or a miracle.  It will be one that recognizes that there is so much more that God has for us.  That we can enter into HIS realm, not our own.  That he has given gifts to the church and when they operate in harmony, God manifests himself among us.  1 Corinthians 14: 1-40

The acts of the Holy Spirit are described in 1 Corinthians 12.   The end of 1 Corinthians 12: 28-31   God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues.  Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles?  Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? Now eagerly desire the greater gifts.

IF a church body refuses to pursue into what God wants, then it is saying it doesn't want God to follow what according to scripture He wants to do.  When that happens I can do no other to go find my "Ichabod" sign.  The Glory has Departed 1 Samuel 4:21-22

What Devils Believe - Michael Cook

So you believe in God. So does the devil! So you believe that Jesus lived on this earth. So do the demons! Your belief in God and your belief that there is/was a man from God named Jesus Christ gets you up to the same level of belief that the devil has. Now what? Our belief has to go beyond mental assent to the fact that God is. That is the beginning but if you stop there, then you're no better than Satan and the demons. Our belief must bring us to a point of conviction. Jesus asked His disciples a question and that question is the most important question that has ever been asked, and the only question that that truly matters in the now and in eternity. The question was a simple one. Matthew 16:13 was the first part of the question. "When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” So who do people today say that the Son of Man is? Some say He was a good moral teacher. Some say He was a great leader. Some say He was a prophet. But then Jesus asked the second part of the question; "“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” (So like Jesus! He gets straight to the heart of the matter! No beating around the bush with Him!) And this is the part of the question that we must be able to answer correctly! "Who do I say that He is today? Who is He in my life? Is He an historical figure who taught good things? Is He the miracle worker that you ask for the material things in life? You know a new car, a new house, a new husband or a new wife? Success, happiness, etc?

What was the answer from Peter to this ALL IMPORTANT question? It was this; "You are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God." (Matthew 16:16). There is the only answer to the question! There is no other answer! Jesus is the Messiah! There is no other. There is no other way! There is no one else! There will never be anyone else! Jesus is the IT! The Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End! You can look for something else and you may find something that you consider a substitute but if you wish to know God, then it's Jesus the Messiah, the Son of the Living God!

If He is not the Messiah to you, then you do not know God and you will never experience God or His Kingdom. If He is not the Son of the Living God to you then you will never know who God is and if you do not know who God is, then you cannot believe in Him to the point of salvation!

Selah! God bless you today that your eyes will be opened and you will receive the gift of sight. God bless you today that your ears will be opened and you will receive the gift of hearing. Why? Because what I have just said cannot be revealed to you by a preacher, or a teacher or an evangelist or prophet or a pope or a saint or by any human entity. Not even an angel can reveal to you what was just written in this post. I can want you to see and hear and understand what this means, but that will not cause it to happen. No! What I have just written about can only be revealed to you by One. "Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven." Matthew 16:17. Only the Father Himself can reveal to you who Jesus truly is. I pray that today is the day that if you are seeking Him, you will find Him! I pray that today is the day that you will hear His voice and respond to Him. I pray this in the name of Jesus. I bind those voices and thoughts that would hinder you from hearing his voice! And when you hear it, when you hear His voice, I pray that you will not harden your heart. Amen!

Words that Changed my Life:

God has much more for you: Rodney Hall

You can live like this: Rodney & Adonica Howard-Browne

More than you can think or imagine: Joyce Still

You are a Prophet... you have the gift: I don't recall who first said this, but so many 15 or 20 years ago began to call me a prophet, and later Prophet Gene that I started to realize their recognition was my ordination from God.

Peace and Shalom over my finances spoken. I had proclamations of prosperity, but never peace. That changed everything. Finances can be an unstable stormy sea until someone says PEACE: Apostle John Eckhardt

You will collect all the money due you, unpaid accounts will be settled in full, (I was in anguish over a man who owed me a great deal of money). I rested in this prophetic word and was indeed eventually paid in full: Brad Hampton

You will live and not die (after a scare re tumor): Brad Hampton

And many more that have formed my life

So if anyone ever says the Prophetic is not important, they are in denial. The prophetic will form your life, by God you are established but you cannot prosper without the Prophetic. 2 Chron 20:20

Now, go out and encourage and if the word of the Lord comes to you.. share it boldly and watch the vector of people's lives change for the better.

Touched by the Holy

Thinking about how many I know that spiritually now walk with a limp.  Who have been touched in the tender place by the Holy and from that encounter have had to lean on Jesus more than tradition, theology, structure, denomination or history.   How the revelation of the Glory of God and the inadequacy of our own strength creates a dependency on HIM that causes those so touched to walk with a limp. 

Wednesday, March 19, 2014


I did not write this.. it implies an eschatology I don't embrace, but the dream is valid evidence of the great divide coming.

When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:  And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.   Matthew 25:31-33

There Is a Separation Taking Place

Dream on February 17, 2014

I was standing in a middle aisle and as I proceeded to move up the middle aisle I saw people to my right and to my left.  To my left I saw Dad talking to a lady that I know and there was a look of hardness on her face and as Dad spoke to her she never even looked at Him or acknowledged Him.  And I said to myself in the dream, “she doesn’t wanna hear anything He has to say.”  And I proceeded upward to find a place to sit.  I noticed that the pews on my right were packed but the pews on my left weren’t.  So I continued on to find my seat and I went around and saw a pew that had an empty end seat and I knew that’s where I wanted to be so that I could move freely.  On that pew were more people that I knew and I asked them if anyone was sitting in that seat because I saw some coats on the pew but they said no and so I took my seat.  Then I woke up.


When I woke up I sat thinking about the dream and then quietly I heard HG (the Holy Ghost), “I’m separating the sheep from the goats.” He then took me in a vision back into the dream so that I could see it from His point of view.  I was then standing on His right side seeing it the way He does and what I saw was that those that I thought were on the right were actually on the left and that the left side was packed with people whereas the right side wasn’t.  Mind you, some of these people I know so what baffled me was that on the side of the left was a pastor and those on the right was some of her members that she’d been leading.   The coats belong to those who at some point of time had been on the right side.  So on March 13th, as I was sitting quietly waiting and listening as I normally do, I hard HG say, “there is a very tangible separation taking place.”  And I began to hear the lyrics of a song saying, “I wanna know where do you stand?  Who’s on the Lord’s side?”  And with no words I felt in my spirit Dad was saying many will know and see who really belong to me.  And the separation that has taken place in the spirit is now manifesting.

Kim Clement: Concerning Ukraine, Russia, Germany, and the Jewish People Kim ClementMarch 8, 2014 – From The Den:

"Am I, the Lord, to be insulted? Am I, God, to be dictated to and told, 'He is unable?' What about Ukraine? What about Russia? You think I have looked away? No! I have prepared to strangle, to throttle the princes who have raised themselves up and called themselves kings before their time.
"This next week I will show you as a people that your prayers, your proclamations, your provision will make a difference. This nation has stood through much, but now I will rattle and shake each one of those who have usurped authority. Many would say the nation is going down, but," God said, "the only way down is up.
"I will show you that I will humble My people in such a way that I will cause the bright and shining star of this nation to shine like it has never shone before.
"And then I will take the people of Ukraine and I will remove them from the stronghold of that one calling himself 'King Putin.' King Putin, who are you? Nothing, without Me. Therefore I will do it, and I will do it swiftly; and out of the ashes of Ukraine I will bring glorious light, and My Church will prosper and My light will shine in Ukraine," says the Lord.

The Lord Shall Rule From Jerusalem, Israel
As Kim is praying for the nations of the world, he states: "Awake the glory of America, England, Ukraine, Russia, the East and the Middle East; South America, Norway, Sweden," then prays for Germany.
Watchman by Jennifer PageGod says, "Watch out. Watch out for Germany. Watch out," says the Lord. "The enemy has endeavored to tempt her again – endeavoring to tempt Germany to join forces with the wickedness of this earth. But there are saints in Germany; there are prayers coming from Germany as well, but yet it is being tempted at this hour to join forces or would stand and be passive.
"How can you be passive when it was in your land that you saw anti-Semitism? How can you be passive when you saw in your land the oppression of the Jews? And it is rising up again, where the Jews are being looked at," says the Lord, "where Israel is being looked at for the Jews in Ukraine, and the Jews in Russia, and the Jews in Germany, and the Jews in Europe."
God said, "Would they go through a holocaust again? No! It shall never happen again, for," God said, "once is enough. Now they have returned to My land, and because they've returned to My land, I shall rule from Jerusalem and I shall rule from Israel," says the Lord.

Last Temptation of Christ

I had never seen the movie, "The Last Temptation of the Christ".  It was on Sundance TV in the motel I was in.  I was going to pass... but then again I thought, I wonder what all the hoopla was years ago?  So I watched it.  Bad acting.  Willem Defoes as Jesus?  HUH.  It was based on a novel by Nikos Kazantzakis.  Martin Scorsese film.  Kazantzakis also wrote Zorba the Greek (a movie I always enjoyed "teach me to dance".)  

OK, pretty raw, and the nudity was edited out.  BUT I did NOT find it offensive in it's concept.  I doubt it's credibility.  But IF we are able to handle the Humanity of Jesus as well as His divinity we have to deal with his human side... that he was true man, and was in the desert subject to temptation even thought he didn't fail.  He resisted as a man, not as God.  Just so you know where I come from on this, the humanity of Jesus is really hard for people to grasp.  In teaching this I tell them Jesus Pooped.  That is hard for people who's theology is messed up.

We do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are--yet he did not sin.  Hebrews 4:15

It was actually pretty sound in it's theological bent.  Some so called "Christian" movies are not so sound. 

I don't recommend you watch it, it's not the Jesus in your Sunday School fliers, don't face this without a sound understanding of who He is.  Yet... it is worth considering.... how tempted WAS Jesus?   If it wasn't tempting it can't be called temptation.   I like food, but I am never tempted to eat Limburger cheese.  Therefore it is never a temptation if presented to me. 

Jesus was Tempted in EVERY WAY you or I am.  EVERY WAY!!  Yet He overcame, He rose in Victory over Death and the Grave.  He destroyed the curse.  He is King of Kings.  He is seated on the throne in Heaven.  And all our hope is in HIM.... it is well placed.  All has been accomplished.

Joey LeTourneau: Awaken Your Dreams! Imagine Nations Changed Because You Lived Your Purpose and Dream!

Joey LeTourneau"Now Joseph had a dream…" Genesis 37:5
We all have a dream! Somewhere inside us there is something that makes our heart burn with passion and burst with joy! It may be an old dream, or it may be fresh. It may be lying dormant waiting to be revived, or it might be on the verge of breathing new life into others. No matter what stage your dreaming heart is in, it is time to prepare for an awakening of your dreams!
Can They Live?
"And He said to me, 'Son of man, can these bones live?'" Ezekiel 37:3
We stand with the Lord looking upon the dry bones of our dreams that the enemy has tried to steal, kill and destroy. And God asks us, "Can these dreams live?" He is awaiting our answer. We must not speak out of hope deferred, but rather – we are to speak out into creation that which has already been conceived inside us and that which the Lord is waiting to partner with you to bring to life!
Much more than a word for you, I believe the Father is calling out the word from within you. He is asking you to begin speaking out your dream once more, and living it to His fullest; one step at a time with Him. Come back to the joy you knew before hope was deferred.
Old, dying or dormant dreams are more alive than you think, and you have more within you to live them out than you realize. There is a child inside you who knows not only how to dream, but how to live them in simple trust and belief.
"Talitha, Cumi"
Before we moved from Ethiopia, I had a very intense dream that felt as real on the outside as it was on the inside. The Lord took me into what seemed to be a mausoleum of sorts, where there were six coffins. He took me over to one specific coffin and said, "Stretch out your hand and prophesy life." I was still dreaming, but literally felt and heard my body and voice join the Lord on the outside as well. As I stretched out my hand and spoke, a child rose, sitting straight up.
I believe this child is a key picture for the time at hand. Almost two years later, having let go of that dream, God brought me a word that sparked its possibilities back to life from Mark 5:41-42: "Then He took the child by the hand and said to her, 'Talitha, cumi,' which is translated, 'Little girl, I say to you arise.' Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome with great amazement."
It is a child such as this that is key to our dreams coming to life and being lived out in the world. To live out the dream inside us and see its Kingdom reality revealed, we must learn to walk with the Father like little children again.
That is how the Israelites crossed the Jordan into their Promise Land, they took one step at a time, living into their dream and promise. The first step came before there was any breakthrough in the waters – they just stepped, and lived it before it was there to be lived. That's what a child would do!
I believe the Father is birthing a youth-filled revival. It's the child inside you, AND the young person next to you. Both are being raised up for such a time as this. God has so frequently moved through unlikely people and strategies, and is now looking for those "empty vessels" (2 Kings 4) of the world who have room for His best rather than our own perception of such.
It's time to let the childlike faith inside you come to life and strengthen you in speaking forth the dreams of your heart. It's time to find the youth around you and empower them with permission to dream! Together, it's time to dream, again!

Not One Purpose Falling to the Ground
One of my dreams and promises I had put down has been coming back to life, and stronger than ever! It originates from the story of Samuel. Samuel was so young when he became the prophetic voice of his time, even during a time when the voice of the Lord was not being heard. He began to live this purpose with God at such a young age, a child co-laboring with his Father, not because of his qualifications or understanding, but because of his yielded nature – which began with Hannah.
So here we have a prophet of God, speaking on behalf of the Lord from such a young age and yet he had this testimony, "So Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground" (1 Samuel 3:19).
This blows me away! How can someone speak for God for a living and still not have one word fall to the ground? We can speak words so frivolously, and yet, here is someone charged with speaking on behalf of the Lord, beginning as a boy, and still not one word fell to the ground unused. It makes me dream for each of us.
If not one word could fall to the ground between God and Samuel, how much more possible is it for not one purpose from any life to fall to the ground?
Our purpose is so uniquely God-given and specially placed. If not one of Samuel's words fell to the ground, than why should any purpose of any of God's children ever fall to the ground? That's why we must dream!
You have a unique purpose within you that no one else has. You have value simply because of who you are to the Father. His love for you is unconditional, and He believes in you. So do I! He is calling you into your unique and special purpose.
It's time to speak forth the dreams that are in you. It's time to walk with Him with childlike trust, live your dreams rather than the world's version, and see your purpose come to life. I pray not one purpose God has put within you will fall to the ground. It's time to dream, and we're not talking "pipe dreams" either. We're talking about the real deal, the dreams that will unveil your purpose to those in the world who need it the most.
Imagine nations changed because you lived your purpose and dream! Hope breathes through those who choose to be awakened.

There's a CHANGE in the WEATHER

Yesterday in our part of the nation it was warm.  Balmy.  Comfortable.  People began to say, the change we have been looking for, spring, is finally here.

It's not true today in our seeing.  It's coming but the early indications are only that.  Indications.  Today and tomorrow heavy snow and cold are coming to hit us once again.

Yet, in our hearts we KNOW that in a month or two there will be changes.  Warm.  Sun. Heat.  Growth. 

This is a picture of the Kingdom.  The Kingdom of God is just over there.  We know that things will change.  That the reign of the king is intact.  Yet we see all kinds of discouraging things in the earth.  All kinds of discouragement.  Politics, Culture, Entertainment, Media, it all seems so lost and corrupt. 

Still at the same time, a plum line of holiness is suspended before our eyes. If we do not take our eyes from that which from eternity was established by God, we will be able to see past the corruptions of our day.  We will see the Kingdom expanding.  We will see righteousness being established in strange and wonderful places.

Like the weather, if we only look at today, that will discourage us.  It is the inexorable heat of the Sun that brings what we desire, and though masked for a moment by snow, cold and rain, the Sun is not darkened... just out of our sight.

So the SON of Righteousness rises and shines on us.  We may become discouraged, yet in the perceived darkness the SON STILL SHINES.

Change is coming and it will make all things new...the Kingdom Expands.

Prophetic WATCH-WORD: The time to "Double" by Lance Wallnau

Stay tuned….'cause I am going to tell you a real CRAZY update regarding Bob Jones' supernatural passing.

The Hebrew Text says "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." The word for "precious" does not convey the meaning. The word does not mean "dear", it means "costly." It takes a long time to make an experienced warrior and it costs something when they depart. Earth loses a costly asset.

But when some go….they don't go 'normal', and they keep influencing things after they've gone.

Let's talk about mantles or spiritual inheritance in the form of a word called - "double portions." The picture on this post is of Elisha receiving a double portion mantle from Elijah. Prophets, for some reason, are connected to the "double portion" in one way or another. Kings don't necessarily die and leave a mantle, but Prophets in the Bible do. They are either receiving mantles and double portions or prophesying them into others.

A great Prophet named Bob Jones departed recently. He was living as part of the eldership at Morningstar under Rick Joyner. I am on the board at Morningstar and both knew Bob and had a great affection for him. His memorial service was massively attended in Charlotte NC, the Morningstar base.

14 is the double of the perfect number 7. So 2014 is the time when God is doubling our capacity to move into supernatural rest by releasing accelerated increase. Inheritance is being released.

Bob Jones departed on Valentines day. When was that? The 2nd month and the 14th day. Doubles all over this date. 2/14/14...Valentines Day!


Most people do not know that on his final night he was in TWO PLACES AT ONCE. I know it sounds crazy but his wife was with him in the hospital as he also appeared to a doctor on another floor. The doctor was asleep in his office on a cot because of hazardous road conditions. The door had a keypad lock on the outside. Bob appeared and somehow supernaturally knew the number to the lock and opened the door.

The startled doctor recognized him and went to touch him but Bob told him not to touch him as he was in the process of departing and didn't want the doctor to die and go with him by accident! He proceeded to give a series of specific prophecies that he felt needed to be communicated to Rick Joyner. Surprisingly, Bob was standing, sort of dancing back and forth as he spoke. What made this phenomenal is that the bones in his legs were broken due to calcium deficiency which was related to his illness. He could not have walked if he wanted to, or stood….and besides, his body was in the other room with his wife, Bonnie.

Shortly after this strange interview, Bob left the doctor, returned to his body and departed…on Valentine's Day. Who knows how these things work. In fact, Bob himself kept saying " I don't fully understand how this works," while talking to the doctor.

The next day the doctor went to read his notes and they were not written in English. They were written, it seems, in something that looks like Mandarin, a language the doctor does not speak. There were numerous words for various ministries.

I will find out more about that mysterious document. But this keeps going…..

Several people are having dreams related to Bob.
Since I am with Prophets this week, James Goll, Stacey Campbell, Mark Chironna as well as leading Apostles convened by Che Ahn, I am picking up on something.

As I woke up today, I remembered a dream I had that involved Bob THIS MORNING. Bob was giving me advice as I was working feverishly on a production line, trying to supply some sort of product. The product was a duplicate or DOUBLE item. The meaning has to do with "the double" and the prophetic (Bob represents) is part of it.

Later in the day, I had to call Bob Harrison about an upcoming meeting I will speak at, his "Increase" event in Maui. Asking him the theme he said…"DOUBLE"


WATCH THE TIMING. THIS MONTH IS THE MONTH OF "Nissan" - the time from March to April when Passover takes place in the Jewish calendar. 50 days after is Pentecost. When I called Bob Harrison to talk tonight, he was celebrating his daughter's 50th birthday!

After the Bob dream, I joined the group I'm with in Cabo and Che Ahn had us pray over one another. The gift of prophecy literally SEEMED TO ROAR INTO ME AND THROUGH ME as I ministered to my friends. I have not swung that prophetic mantle in years, having relied increasingly on my prophetic teaching gift rather than straight-out "prophesying." My gift is reactivated.

Afterward, I considered the meaning of the dream. Bob Jones represented the "Prophet" and the production line had two items in my life , the office of "Prophet" and "Teacher." For a season these two are going to work as DOUBLES; they will produce double impact for you and others and, I believe, double increase for me and my ministry team.

In fact, we will be doing "DOUBLE YOUR BUSINESS" Coaching this month. Ask about it at ""

THE NEXT 50 DAYS are strategic like I never saw before. Positioning us for the DOUBLE, from Passover to Pentecost.

Any of this make sense?

Words and Pictures

I was part of the Impact Round Table Thurs - Saturday this last week.   The topic was the prophetic.  I was shocked by the large number of people who attended. I have attended a couple other such events but usually the group was much smaller.  I wondered why the interest.  Since this is normative for me, I couldn't grasp why the Prophetic was of such interest.

It turns out, many people have fuzzy ideas in this area.

One of which that was discussed was the differences between those who get prophetic downloads by pictures (Seers) and those who get words (Prophetic words).   I am the former.  I most often see things.  I am a visual person and in that regard normally see things. 

I can get a word, but when I do it's more than one.

I honor and respect those who launch from a single word.  It's just now how I flow.

Yet, I want to understand it all.  It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words.  There are some things that can only be understood by imagery.  Much of the Bible is image based.  We are painted a word picture and that is what we are to interpret.  Even words given will require interpretation.

Consider the image Daniel saw... of kingdoms rising and falling.  The image drove the word.

Some things are better seen than heard.  I am thankful for the seeing.

Christianity without Transformation - The Problem With Lent

There are many religious traditions that people encounter that are entertaining, activities, works and presumptions on the Grace of God given.

Many people are concerned about a hyper grace Gospel.  I am concerned about dead works.  Hear the word of the Lord:

 "These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me".  Matthew 15:8

"And so the Lord says, "These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote".  Isaiah 29:13

This all comes as the church world begins to go thru yet another tradition.  "Honoring" Jesus and His sacrifice in the season of Lent.  Abstaining from this or that.  No meat.  Wearing ashes (tonight).  Giving up all kinds of things in a sort of physical circumcision, when God calls for people to have a circumcision of their Hearts and not their flesh. 

"A true Jew is one whose heart is right with God. And true circumcision is not merely obeying the letter of the law; rather, it is a change of heart produced by God's Spirit. And a person with a changed heart seeks praise from God, not from people".  Romans 2:29

Pastor Phil Ressler wrote on this in his profound writing "20 Things to Give up for Lent".  Read it if you think I am off on this.

There are too many things we do that are traditional and without transformation.  Most Communion is without impact.  Infant Baptism as a "Born Again" moment is without effect.  I don't deny God's capability in grace extended (as happens in a dedication), but it is not a transformation as described by Jesus to Nicodemus.  That is a transformative experience.

The same is those who believe they have been Baptized in the Holy Spirit but are un transformed.  They may have gone thru some ceremony, but it's all tradition.  Even some who speak in some kind of tongue are untransformed.

Unless a person is transformed, they will not see the Kingdom of God.  That's not about heaven. That's another issue. It's about seeing what God is doing all around us.

It's time to let the trans-formative power of Christ rule and reign in hearts.  (I can speak for God here too, He is tired of those who honor him with their mouths but nothing else)

Romans 12:2
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

2 Corinthians 3:18
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Romans 5:1-21
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

The Heavens are Declaring

I don't always take weather events and equate them with what God is saying, but sometimes it's just too hard to ignore. 

Father often uses drought, rain, wind and clouds in his manifestations.  The question gets to be, what does it mean when a weather event takes place.  Sure in the natural there are always many reasons and explanations for why certain weather events happen.. but in the supernatural perhaps we cannot see because we rely on those explanations.

The superstorm Sandy happened.  Why was the question.  I won't define what I think that means any more.  Many have.  Katrina happened and some had opinions why.  I did. Still do.

Yet, if you believe in a Good God (as I do) He does all things well, He does all things for a purpose, He does things for our good.   

Therefore what does what is happening in the USA mean right now?  I only address the USA because as a national prophet, it's my prophetic beat.  I can't say much about Africa, China or Israel.

What do we have and what does it mean.

Severe Drought in the Southwest and California. Huge rainstorm, most of which was lost to the ocean.  Little was retained on the land to water and furnish that which people need.

Cold weather and snow in most of the USA.  Lasting longer and deeper than anyone thought it would. 

The great lakes have pretty much frozen over completely.  Last time this happened was in 1979. 

This is all to help us understand the reason we even live is by the purposes of God. 

The drought is not punishment for a sign for those who think we can live with out that which is essential.   The water of HIS word.  AND the rain that came that could have helped relieve the drought was lost.  This is indicative of what is going on in the Kingdom. 

The cold is an indicator of how a cold heart takes longer to warm... it requires the SONSHINE.

If we stay too cold too long we freeze up.

It's time for spring.  Song of Solomon Chapter 2:

My beloved responded and said to me, 'Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, And come along. 11For behold, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone. 12The flowers have already appeared in the land; The time has arrived for pruning the vines, And the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land.…

Confusion and Distraction are the Devil's Tools for Blindness

True confessions. I can be blinded.  I can miss it.  I can be made to not see what was supposed to be seen. 

How?  No the devil doesn't come and put a blindfold on me.  He doesn't cause scales to form.  He does it by the Squirrel trick.  LOOK THERE'S A SQUIRREL.  When I should keep my eye firmly on the things that matter, he uses events, situations and people to cause me to look away.

I need the Word of God to help me keep my focus on what matters. 
  • Things above
  • Not looking at what lies behind
  • Eternal Not Temporal
  • What is good 

Those admonitions from scripture help me know that I must not let news reports and drama distort my focus.  Sometimes politics and culture cause me to lash out against what I see (note SEE) all around me and I call it out as error.

What I don't see is what lies beneath these distractions.

There is a balance... I seek it. To call out those things from which those called by HIS name must be aware and to be so focused that we find ourselves arguing over the color of the vestments while the Bolsheviks break down our church doors.

There is a chain where Holy Ghost pulls me back up short and causes me to realize I have taken my eyes off the prize...

That's a clever trick the devil uses.... remember this, there is no squirrel.

The Fullness of the "HOW MUCH MORE" Father Heart of God

Jesus teaching on the Kingdom used the phrase, HOW MUCH MORE WILL YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN...

In other words, we know our hearts. Our hearts are pretty weak and evil compared to the Heart of God.  He is the God of How Much More...

So, next time you think of how God sees you, or your situation, think of this:  If you are a father to a child and your child needed something, you would do what you could to provide.. How much more will your Heavenly Father love and  care for you than the way you do for your earthly children.

He really does love you... it is a Father's Heart.   A heart called, how much more.
