The Matthew 28 Baptism

Twenty-eight.

Sunday was a three-fold day of blessing and fire for me. It was not just Mother’s Day. It was not just my 28th Birthday. It was also the day that I was baptized into a new and higher realm with Jesus. It was the day where the culmination of many streams of what God has been doing in my life and with my destiny all converged into one single strand of fire unto the nations.ACBF75A5-A0BA-42CF-B706-2A302AF82B78
I have spent countless time over the years pondering on and seeking the Lord for my place in the Kingdom. Many things became apparent, but I was still left with many yet-to-be-answered questions. Many promises yet to be fulfilled.

If there is one thing I have been sure of with His plans for me, it was always that He created me to be a mother. Over the past few years, He began to reveal how multifaceted that call actually was.

He was not calling me to just be a physical mother to the precious children that I carried within my womb and bore. He destined me to be a mother to the orphans and those forgotten; to take up the cause of Justice for His Little Ones (both unborn and fatherless). He pre-ordained me to be a spiritual mother to a generation of Burning Ones and to love, forerun, prepare the way, contend, ascend, and to champion them into their destinies.

I understand now why I was born on Mother’s Day; why I get to celebrate that divine convergence frequently through my years.

MATTHEW 28:18-20Jesus commissions us all to GO into ALL NATIONS and PREACH THE GOSPEL, TEACH, TRAIN, BAPTIZE, and MAKE DISCIPLES; teaching them that the Kingdom of Heaven is AT HAND. It is a gift freely received when we receive Jesus and His finished work on the cross. It is a gift we are to freely give out like a sweet love offering to The Only One Who is worthy to receive all of who we are and all we have to give. He declares that just as the Father sent Him, He is sending us!

His promise is that all authority under Heaven and on earth has been given to Him; and He has given us that very same authority because of His Holy Spirit Who dwells within us. Therefore, EVERYTHING THAT HE DID, WE CAN DO. That’s His Command, Expectation, and Promise…

Matthew 10:7-8 (TPT)
“And as you go, preach this message: ‘Heaven’s Kingdom realm is accessible, close enough to touch.’ 
You must continually bring healing to lepers and to those who are sick, and make it your habit to break off the demonic presence from people, and raise the dead back to life. Freely you have received the power of the Kingdom, so freely release it to others.”

After five years, the door to the nations are finally open again to me personally and the Lord has been so good to open two nations this year. In three weeks I will return to Spain for the third time and will be joining my father and mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and a small team of pastors to preach the Gospel, evangelize, train, and equip the Spaniards to do the same; all to see Spain reawakened and set on fire for the Lord. At the end of the year, I will also be joining a team to bring the Fire and Glory of the Lord to one of the most closed nations to the Gospel in South Asia.

To say that I am excited is an understatement. To be honest, part of me over the past few years began to feel a bit downtrodden in regards to not being released to GO. Our hearts are so for the nations that we would drop everything in a moment to GO if He called us. In the past five years, Jeremiah was released to go to a number of nations and the fruit of those opportunities to partner with Him in His work in the nations is overwhelming. Though I was never able to physically set foot in those nations, Jesus was so faithful to grow me as I shepherd the hearts of those of my first ministries, my children. He also pushed me to partner and sow in prayer and in prophesying His Word into those nations; and because of that and the union with my Husband, I am able to partake in the same fruit that was bore through the labor of my Husband’s hands.

Jesus revealed to me through a Heavenly encounter while Jeremiah was ministering in a Southeast Asian nation in August of last year that He was opening the nations once again and He released keys to specific nations to take for the Glory of God; and that even this year I would once again set foot in the nations. That they would never be closed to us again. I held those promises close to my heart and prophesied them forth in the secret place; and here we are.

Recently I heard Him say, “It’s necessary that my Husband baptize me on my birthday to step into the next phase of my destiny of bringing His fire to the nations. Matthew 28 on 28.” That it was to be a fresh baptism of fire to be a Mother to many nations.

After baptizing me, Jeremiah was baptized in a renewed commitment to love Jesus and partner with Him in carrying the fire of God to all nations. He loves me so well to also be baptized, to join with me in what God is doing in and through me. He loves Jesus so well to do whatever it takes to ascend higher in the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.FC117164-E8BD-4400-854F-9FFE7EF48BA0

All of this with our boys right in it.

What greater legacy could we leave them, than to declare with our lives that we love Jesus with everything we are and would lay down our very lives to proclaim His name and to set nations ablaze for the Glory of God?! My sincerest prayer is that they would never forget the love offerings of that day and of our lives laid down for Jesus. That they would be further marked by the hand and fire of God to do greater things for the Kingdom of God than we ever could, and to take more nations into the Kingdom of Heaven that we could ever dream of.

We love You, Jesus. To the ends of the earth for LOVE.

My prayer through sharing all of this is that you would receive a fresh impartation of the baptism of fire of Holy Spirit and that you would begin to see the nations with a renewed vision, through His eyes of love, compassion, and that He would sear nations on your heart.

Being called to GO isn’t just for our family; it is for every soul. It is not His Great Suggestion, but His Great Command; His Great Commission. He desires every person to co-labor with Him and co-mission with Him to set the nations ablaze and to bring Him the reward of His suffering!

Let’s step up, step out, unafraid and unashamed; and not let another soul perish while we can do something about it! We have the very Spirit of God abiding within us and therefore, all authority over every power of hell is within us; all power over every principality is contained within this earthen vessel. May we surrender everything to laying down our very lives for this one thing: that Jesus may be glorified among the nations.

LORD, EKBALLO!!!

Matthew 10:7-8
(AMP)
“Jesus came up and said to them, ‘All authority (all power of absolute rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words], baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.'”

(TPT)
“Then Jesus came close to them and said, ‘All the authority of the universe has been given to Me.
 Now go in my authority and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age.'”

Keep it Simple (Southeast Asia)

Ministering in the schools

One class of students who gave their lives to Jesus while ministering in the schools.

Life is not as complicated as we make it out to be, but we make it hard by knowing too much. We think we must gather all the information, weigh all the options, and then make an informed decision. This takes too long and is more complicated than necessary. Faith is trusting that God knows best and His promises will come about no matter what the situation. 

It is so simple what we have been doing here in Southeast Asia. We have been partnered with a pastor and translator. In the morning, they come and get us, then we go out all day. There are always plans, but it is almost not worth asking what we are going to do because these plans are ever changing. There is a beauty and an adventure in not knowing where you are going or what you will be doing. Your only focus is to trust that God will give you whatever you need when you get to that situation.

Before coming here, God gave me a message to speak whenever I was asked. The first two opportunities to speak, God did not let me share this message, but changed what I was to share at the last minute. I still do not know how many opportunities I will have to share, but I trust God will give me what I need at exactly the right time.

Originally, we were supposed to be doing home visits with the friends and family of the people in the church. Until last night, I had done none. My pastor wanted to immediately go out and do street evangelism. This is definitely not my gift as I shared before. However, God has given me the grace to share in markets, bus stations, schools and more.

Yesterday, God opened the door for me to begin praying for the sick and apparently that is what He wanted to do. I laid hands on the sick and prayed for more than 20 different people, several getting a least a measure of healing immediately. God even opened the door for me to pray over a young man oppressed by the devil for 13 years. On the way there, they said we were going to pray for a sick boy because that is all they knew before we got there. God worked in a mighty way in each situation.

This young man was set free from 13 years of demonic oppression and began receiving healing and restoration. 

My encouragement for you today is keep it simple. Don’t make life difficult! The salvation, healing, and deliverance we are seeing in a mighty way here can and will happen right where you are if you keep it simple.  Here, are two steps straight from the Word to help you walk a simple life and do great things.

1. Know God!!!

Daniel 11:32 …the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. 

The more you come to know God, the stronger He will make you. Also, He will give you everything you need to do great things.

2. Open your mouth!!!

Psalm 81:10 I am the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt; open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. 

The word of God coming forth from your mouth changes things. If I spent all day seeking God and then went and stood at the market, nothing would happen. God needs you to open your mouth and speak forth His word. The promise is that He will give you what you need to say as you know him and open your mouth.

I bless you today with the ability to keep it simple. May you come to know God more and open your mouth to share about this great God you love and serve.

Shelter from the Fire

This week has been a special and yet interesting week for the Gibson family! Last Friday, we had the joy of Jeremiah’s younger brother, Aaron, returning home from Army training. Jeremiah and I have not seen him since before we left on our around the world faith journey over a year ago. So it is great getting to catch up with him and hang out during his 1 week stay here in Texas before he heads to his new station in Washington D.C. We have been able to have times of encouragement with him on Saturday at our small group as well as Sunday morning at breakfast with some friends.

Sunday afternoon we had a Gibson family get-together at Jeremiah’s older brother, Garrett’s house. It has been a long time since all of the Gibson kids were in the same room together, seeing as the majority of us are running all over the world following the global call of God on our lives. This time, we were missing Tiffany and Bryson who are in England, but were able to Skype Tiffany for some time and talk to her so that was a blessing. There is no telling when the whole family will be back together again. Aaron will be able to come back home over Christmas for a few days, however, Tiffany and Bryson will probably be spending the holidays in England.

On Monday, I babysat our nephew, Noah, for his mother, Damaris, who was taking the newest addition to the family, little Joseph, to the doctor. I received a call from Damaris in the morning before her appointment saying that it would be delayed because they had a fire at their house. It appears that a nursing pillow in their room had fallen onto a nightlight and went unnoticed until she heard Joseph, who was sleeping on their bed, coughing on the baby monitor; after which she smelled smoke. She ran into the room and grabbed Joseph and left the house, calling the Fire Department. The fire was very controlled and remained in one corner of their room where the firefighters were able to put it out. They lost a few of Joseph’s things but God definitely was watching out for them and divinely protected them, keeping them safe.

The Nursing Pillow

God knew what would happen so He had Noah come stay with us for the day and if Joseph had not coughed, Damaris might not have known for longer. God even orchestrated the weather to be cold and very windy outside so that they could leave the windows open for it to air out their house. Nothing goes unnoticed with the Lord. He sees all things, knows what will happen and also acts on our behalf. Isaiah 64:4 says, “For from of old no one has heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides You, Who works and shows Himself active on behalf of him who [earnestly] waits for Him.”  

Firefighters and Baby Joseph

God is forever faithful and protects His children, sheltering them under the shadow of His wings. May this be an encouragement to you that if God is for you, who shall be against you? (Romans 8:31)

Partners with Purpose!!!

Currently, we have over 1000 views of our website, 33 Followers, and so many more people partnering with us in prayer for the work God is doing.  Friday night at JHOP (Justice House of Prayer) NYC, the worship leader Kevin came up to us after the meeting was over and had a word to give to us.  The word came from Exodus 17:11-13 “And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. 12 But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. 13 So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people”  He spoke that God was calling us to be like a Moses and that we were to go out and do great and mighty things.  He said that is was important for us to raise up partners everywhere that we go so that they could directly take part in the work that was being done through our efforts.

I want to thank everyone who has partnered with us so far in prayer and giving and bless you for everything you have done for us.  We are seeking out all those who can partner with us financially both with one time investments, and with continued monthly blessings.  Many of you believe in Katie, myself and the ministry that God is calling us to do.  I am asking you to become our continued partners throughout this global journey on which God has called us.  We are looking for 50 or more people who can contribute $50 or more each month.  A gift of any size and amount will be a blessing to us since we must travel between countries which can get expensive.

Our next stop is Norway.  We are expecting to minister here for about a month before heading to the UK.  Tickets to Norway are going to cost $1300 for the both of us.  While we are here, we will be taking part in a special school to train and equip the people of Norway with proven evangelistic tools.  The cost of this school is $730 and will include all of our food and lodging for this time.  These are some additional expenses on top of the monthly support we are needing.

We know and trust that God is our provider and sustainer and that He has called us out on this journey.  We know that He will provide everything that we need to complete His mission.  I would like you to consider two things.  One, is it possible that God wants to use you to provide for us?  Please pray and ask the Lord what amount you are supposed to give.  Two, do you want to share in the fruit of the mission God is leading us to?  Everything you give is going into the planting, watering, and harvesting that God has us doing.  You are strengthening and encouraging churches through us as you partner with us on God’s Global Mission.
