Do You See It Now?

Thousands saved in Southeast Asia and the sound of an abundance of rain!!! ūüí®ūüĆßūüĆä

This afternoon I shared a final count update from Jeremiah of people who gave their lives to Jesus in a 6 days period while ministering in Southeast Asia in one region! Prepare to be blown away at Jesus!!! Acts 2 being made manifest present day!!!

I also released a brief prophetic Word of the Lord and encouragement pertaining to the outpouring of the rains of the Spirit, holding tightly to the promises of God in the face of adversity, and persevering to receive double the recompense and double the blessing!

The Lord is saying, “where are they that would prepare the way? Where are they that would seek My face in the difficult place?”

Super Blue Blood Moon

As I stared out the window early this morning, I began to ask the Lord about the significance of the rare occurrence of the Super Blue Blood Moon I was observing. While in prayer, I received a powerful answer from Him:

The sun, moon, and all of creation are Mine. The sun is a reflection of My glory. The moon is a reflection of the sun’s light. This phenomena that I spoke of is coming forth. Many have gathered to see this very rare occurrence, being drawn to the awe and wonder of it all. In this sign and wonder, a great awakening is on the rise. 

“Arise and shine, for Christ will give you light!” 

A great shift is occurring in the heavens to usher in the Third Great Awakening. The awakening and arising of sons and daughters is coming forth. The ground will begin to quake and graves will be burst open in the spiritual. A sign of this will come forth in the manifestation of quakings in the natural. Spiritually marked places will be reawakened and plugged up wells will come under such pressure that debris that has been built up over years of inactivity will burst forth, making way for the outpouring of fresh rivers to come forth. Spiritually rich lands will begin to once again pour forth My Spirit as their dormant period comes to an end. 

The sleeping giants can only remain at rest for a while longer. The voices of the ones crying out in the wilderness, “Prepare the way of the Lord!” are reaching their ears. The seven giants are about to receive the breath of life and once again rise up to take their places. 

A Great War has been waged and it will take the unification of the body to overcome it. No longer can there be dividing lines separating one from another. Get over your differences and meld together to become who you were destined to be! Take your place, o, sons and daughters!

Breath of Life

Word of the Lord for Turkey- October 21, 2017

As I was praying, the Lord gave me a vision of the nation of Turkey being outlined by a line of fire, which began to spread out to surrounding nations and burn up the land there. It was bringing destruction to what life existed there as with an uncontrolled wild fire. Jesus came in with a bellows and began to feverishly pump it upon the fire as if to extinguish it. When the blaze was not put out, He blew a strong breath and immediately the flame extinguished. Amidst the smoldering mess, He began surgery on the nation. He spoke to one of the angels surrounding Him asking for a scalpel. Then He cut into the heart of Turkey and began reaching in and pulling out cords and wires of this mechanical being and throwing them out until there was nothing left but a hollow void. He began suturing in veins and a heart and other vital parts, pumping blood into them. He continued this process until surgery was complete. After suturing up the gap, He got a defibrillator from an angel, charged it and shocked the nation to life. He blew a strong breath and Turkey began to be filled with life and lit with a warm glow that was unlike the former. Veins began growing and being lit up to expand beyond the heart into surrounding nations.

Upon dwelling on this vision, the Lord was saying that Turkey for far too long has been a place that has become almost lifeless and mechanical, burning the bridge of relations and influence with the nations. Corruption and deception run rampant among many and cut to the very deep. I Am the One who brings life and among the whole of the nation, I have been rejected for far too long.

But in the governing bodies, I am doing something new. I am removing corruption and placing relics of righteousness for the sake of My faithful ones who have been interceding day and night for the salvation of Turkey.

I am putting the nation into a deep slumber as a bellows administers anesthesia, so that I can perform life-saving surgery. I am ripping out the dead, fruitless pieces and throwing them out . Yes, I am beginning afresh for you cannot put new wine into old wine skins. I am fashioning each part to fit perfectly. Each person I elect will bring new legislation and a new atmosphere of change. There will be obvious signs that will bring a shock of life back into the nation. Yes, watch as I breathe life into this new nation. Relations will be restored, industries will be started up to bring provision for the nation. No longer will the enemy reign in deception but the revelation of the knowledge of Jesus will be made manifest and the Bride of Christ will see herself for who she truly is. This revelation will spark such life that it will expand and grow to reach the outer parts into surrounding nations.

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭51:10-15‬ ‭NLT‬‬

‚ÄúCreate in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. Do not banish me from Your Presence, and don‚Äôt take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and make me willing to obey You. Then I will teach Your ways to rebels, and they will return to You. Forgive me for shedding blood, O God who saves; then I will joyfully sing of Your forgiveness. Unseal my lips, O Lord, that my mouth may praise You.‚ÄĚ

Ezekiel‬ ‭37:4-14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

‚ÄúThen He said to me, ‚ÄúSpeak a prophetic message to these bones and say, ‚ÄėDry bones, listen to the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again! I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin. I will put breath into you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.‚Äô‚ÄĚ So I spoke this message, just as He told me. Suddenly as I spoke, there was a rattling noise all across the valley. The bones of each body came together and attached themselves as complete skeletons. Then as I watched, muscles and flesh formed over the bones. Then skin formed to cover their bodies, but they still had no breath in them. Then He said to me, ‚ÄúSpeak a prophetic message to the winds, son of man. Speak a prophetic message and say, ‚ÄėThis is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again.‚Äô‚ÄĚ So I spoke the message as He commanded me, and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet‚ÄĒa great army. Then He said to me, ‚ÄúSon of man, these bones represent the people of Israel. They are saying, ‚ÄėWe have become old, dry bones‚ÄĒall hope is gone. Our nation is finished.‚Äô Therefore, prophesy to them and say, ‚ÄėThis is what the Sovereign Lord says: O my people, I will open your graves of exile and cause you to rise again. Then I will bring you back to the land of Israel. When this happens, O my people, you will know that I am the Lord. I will put My Spirit in you, and you will live again and return home to your own land. Then you will know that I, the Lord, have spoken, and I have done what I said. Yes, the Lord has spoken!‚Äô‚ÄĚ‚ÄĚ

Stand Strong and Speak

Belize Day 3 –
Today was a little more relaxed as we gathered together in the morning.  We have four professional teams coming to play futbol, all under 13 yrs old. One team recently won an international championship. We started with some worship and games, and I spoke to them for about ten minutes.
 4 teams playing 4 games is an all day event.  We watched, ate, and cheered on the teams. Finally, at the end, we awarded them some medals, water bottles and other practical and candied items.
Our final event of the day was for the guys on the team to lead a men’s meeting and the women to lead a women’s meeting at two different churches. ¬†About 40 men were gathered for the men’s meeting and we went for two and a half hours in worshipping, preaching and praying for people.
It was here that I met a man named Sebastian. I talked with him for a while and found out that he was a new believer, 10 days, he had been saved and here he was hungry to learn. He admitted readily that before, he had been to several of the surrounding countries dating beautiful women but had by the grace of God not gotten any diseases like HIV… I think there was a little bit more than dating going on. ¬†As I sat and talked, it was good to see how God was moving and how I got to be a small part of the growth of this man in the kingdom. Just being here and encouraging him was an important part of why I came on this trip.

Psalm 24:3-6 Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? 4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol,
Nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive blessing from the Lord, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face.
It is time for you to stand up in the Kingdom!!!  You stand to fight, to run, to act, and command authority.  You cannot sit by and let things return to the evil one, but you must stand and take back the Kingdom of God.

It is time for you to speak out!!! ¬†Even if you are standing strong, if you do not speak out the truth of why and for Who you are standing, then you might as well be a tree or a statue. ¬†It is good to stand strong but everyone around you needs to know the goodness and might of the Lord and the strength He has put in you. ¬†He calls you to go and preach. ¬†If you just go or just stand, you are the same as any other good ol’ boy. ¬†However, when you speak out the Truth, this is what sets you apart from everyone else. ¬†You have the love and truth of the Lord and this is why you must go out to share the love and truth that He has placed in you.

Ask God to help you to stand, go, and fight today to build His Kingdom.  Strengthen yourself in Him by spending a little extra time with Him.  Thank Him for this strength of heart and ask Him to strengthen you more.  Today, speak out the truth and love that you have.  Share the good news in a small or great way by speaking forth the wonderful works of God and why you are who you are, not by your power or might, but by the Grace of God and His Spirit!!!

The Core Counts

Belize Day 2 –¬†
 
Arriving late at the base (Day 1) we were ushered into utter darkness.  We approached a bridge  and began to traverse it.  As we swayed in the breeze, we realized that this wooden bridge was actually a swinging bridge that spanned a chasm that the river ran through.
The middle of the bridge was probably 300 feet above the water and we could barely see from one side of the bridge to the other.  As we finally stepped off the bridge, we were greeted with a welcome to YWAM sign.
The next day, I would cross that bridge 9 times, and it was not all that scary after carrying guitars and cases of water across it, or watching a moto ride across it.
 Today, I was in charge of the church service at Evangel Temple.  I took a group of about 20 to minister to children and youth. We had the privilege of walking to this church.  The team did really well with Chelsea leading worship, Linda organizing, as well as several games and illustrations.  This service was a real picture of the Body of Christ.  It went well because everyone was doing their part and ministering and it touched the 50+ people that were there.  It seemed like we were there forever after the service making all kinds of balloon animals, but we got back to the base by 12:30.
During the afternoon, we had free time and finally led the evening church service at Jubilee.  We walked back in the dark, and I had the privilege of removing a bat from our bathroom.  Exhausted, I crashed ready to rest and prepare for the day to come.

During the children and youth service, I shared with them about how what really matters is the core of who you are.  If your core is strong, then the rest of your body will come into order.  A balloon filled with air is much different than one filled with water or rocks.  Increasing the strength of the core increases the strength of the object in question.

In Mark 12:30, Jesus says the most important commandment is to love the Lord with everything you have starting with your heart.  Proverbs 4 talks about guarding your heart above all else because out of it flows the wellsprings of life.  Your heart is the most important part of you, and what you set your affection on determines your strength.

 Today, think about your core, how is your relationship with God.  The stronger that bond, the deeper the intimacy, the more everything else will come into place.  Get your relationship growing with the Lord and you will begin to grow in every other area!!!

Boots on the Ground (Belize)

Day 1 – Boots on the Ground
Gathering at DFW airport, the mission had already begun… or the attacks had, though I am sure everyone has had their fair share leading up to the trip. ¬†A girl named Sarah did not have a consent form from her father. ¬†This was her first mission trip, and she has dreams of being in medical missions, so it was a rocky start. ¬†I waited with her and told her stories until her dad came back and narrowly missed the cutoff time.

As we entered through security, this minor calamity averted, it was obvious that the enemy was trying to keep us all from coming to Belize.  However, we did not let fear or worry get in the way, but pressed in with faith.
13895417_1155453427826108_7617020882474092986_n
More complications when we arrived and getting our luggage through customs, but no big deal.  Here, I am in my element.  With this being my 28th foreign mission trip though I have never been in Belize, I was ready for the adventure once again!!!

L.J and Sheldon transported us to the Belize sign after we had loaded our luggage and I was blessed with being in the van with a very nice luxury AC.  Probably the only time I will have it on this trip, but for half the team or more, this is their first mission trip, and I was glad to let them have the true cultural experience riding in the window-conditioned bus.  Belize has surprised me at the poverty level and run down appearance even near the airport.  It reminds me of Cambodia in many ways.  The air is muggy though the temperature is less hot than Texas.  It does not seem like it when you are constantly sweating.

At the Belize Sign, I approached a man named Ashton.  I spoke with him a bit and invited him to take a picture with us.  He seemed to have other intentions when he hugged several of the attractive females, and I even had to pull him out of an embrace and ask him questions about himself to keep him focused on other things.  I ended up praying for him and asking God to show him his true family and His love.  Paul happened to be there and gave him a word about God restoring a broken relationship in his life.  Here it was, real-time ministry in Belize, and it was so easy.

We left here and ate together at the Cheers restaurant where I was able to get to know Santie a little better. ¬†Then we journeyed to the base and had an orientation before heading to bed… later than most wanted. ¬†After taking a nice cold shower, I write this basking in the glory of the foreign mission, where I have been privileged to be once again.

Matthew 6:10 Your kingdom come.Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 
 
Romans 8:37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 
You are in a battle!!!  Every day of your life you are warring for the freedom of your soul.  Sometimes, you will be given the opportunity to fight for others as well.  As we travel to Belize, we are warring for an entire nation, souls to be prepared and revival to be harvested for the Kingdom.  Wherever you are, God is able to use you in a mighty way as long as you do not let the enemy make you back down.  Sarah did not give up but pressed in because she has a purpose on this trip. I stepped in to encourage where I could have passed by only looking out for myself.  Brothers and sisters, we are in this battle together and we cannot afford to leave anyone behind.
God is calling you to do great things for Him wherever you are. ¬†When you obey, you are His boots on the ground. ¬†It is up to you to take the fight to the enemy and forcefully advance the Kingdom of God. ¬†The enemy will not stand by and do nothing, but you partnering with God makes a majority in any and every situation. Never back down from what God has called you to do and never settle for less than all He has for you. ¬†You must stand for Him and do what’s right because so many people are counting on you!!!

Destiny Destroyer (Unforgiveness)

Weight of Unforgiveness

At the beginning of this week, I had an overwhelming urge to do something!!!  I want to start a church, Bible Study, preach more, pray for people more, minister more!!!  I feel like I have so much that I can do to build the Kingdom of God, but still no direction where to apply it.  This is frustrating, but I know that God is using us, and working in us to prepare us for the next step.  This does not make the waiting time any easier though.  Here is the third part in a devotional series that God has been speaking to me to help me and my family walk more into the destiny that He has for us.

Now, since we know that we are Designed for Destiny¬†and¬†as we are removing every obstacle and making sure that we are receiving the Best Possible Signal, we must be very careful not to let anything destroy the destiny that God has for our lives. ¬†There are a broad range of things that can be destroyers, Anger, fear, insecurity… but one of the most common destroyers of destiny is unforgiveness.

Imagine you order a meal from McDonalds. You scarf down the burger and are eating the fries when you discover a used band-aid nestled at the bottom of the box. Would you be able to finish the rest of the fries? Would you even want to?

A-Band-Aid-In-McDonald’s-Fries

Something bad no matter how small can ruin the rest of a good thing!!!

You should know, God wants you to walk in dynamic destiny right now. You must position yourself to receive and remove all obstacles. One of the most dangerous destroyers of destiny is unforgiveness. The devil will use this to steal from you. If he can cause you to take up an offense, your destiny begins to wither and die until you are able to forgive.

Read Matthew 18:21-35

Here, Jesus tells a parable explaining forgiveness. One servant was forgiven an immense sum that he would never be able to pay back, but that servant would not forgive his friend a few bucks. Because of his lack of mercy, the unforgiving servant was punished.

Forgive

You are called to be a representative of Christ. When you come to Him, He forgives you such an enormous debt that you could never repay Him. He gave His life up completely for you. Because of this mercy that was freely given to you, you do not have a right to be unmerciful. No, what they did is not right, and yes it hurt you deeply. But God granted you mercy and freedom from death, and you also must grant mercy and let God deal with it. In releasing that offense, God is able to release you into fully walking in your destiny because you are a better representative of Him. Get rid of the band-aid and enjoy the fries!!!

Challenge: Ask Holy Spirit to reveal everyone that you need to forgive. Write their names down on a sheet of paper. Release each name to God and ask Him to help you forgive them completely. Rip your list up and throw it away as a physical act of canceling their debt.

Destroying Unforgiveness
