Missions Update: The Harvest is Ripe in Pakistan!

This year has been such a blessed year of fruitfulness and being sent out to partner with Jesus and what He is doing among the nations. The doors to the nations have been opened to us and it’s not over yet!

In February, I was sent out to Florida for The Send, to join over 60,000 people from all around the world to pray and contend for a new wave of a missions sending movement. Years worth of visions and words from the Lord culminated into a manifestation before my very eyes of the mighty army rising up to overthrow the kingdom of darkness in the earth; and to carry the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

A few weeks ago, I was sent to Spain to decree and declare the Word of the Lord that Spain’s time of awakening has come. That the Spirit of the Lord has breathed life into the land and that an incredible army is rising up to life to advance forth like never before. The time for the vineyards of Spain to be on fire is now! New wine is coming forth from Spain! We saw the beginnings of this move as we ministered and saw close to 40 people give their lives to the Lord, along with many healings and deliverances!

Along with these, another door has opened for me to be a part of a fiery team of Burning Ones to bring fire to the nation of Pakistan!!! In October I will be joining Destiny Encounters and many from across the globe to see the 2nd strictest Islamic nation encounter Jesus and never be the same!!!

I believe that a sea of souls will be brought into the Kingdom of God from this trip through the demonstration and power of the Gospel!!! I have seen it in the spirit and still, it will be nothing compared to the glory that is revealed as thousands choose Jesus!

Romans‬ ‭10:14-15‬ ‭(TPT‬‬)
“But how can people call on Him for help if they’ve not yet believed? And how can they believe in One they’ve not yet heard of? And how can they hear the Message of Life if there is no one there to proclaim it? And how can the Message be proclaimed if messengers have yet to be sent? That’s why the Scriptures say: How welcome is the arrival of those proclaiming the joyful news of peace and of good things to come!”

I say to you, don’t believe the news media! Jesus is King!!!

Pakistan is ripe for REVIVAL!!!
Pakistan is ripe for HARVEST!!!

I share with you again the longing of His heart spoken to me at the end of last year that has reverberated through my spirit time and again:

“WHERE ARE THEY THAT WOULD PREPARE THE WAY?!”

It is an honor and privilege to GO when and where He calls! The earnest desire of my heart is to fulfill the cry of Jesus’ heart:

Luke 12:49‬ ‭(TPT‬‬)
“I have come to set the earth on fire. And how I long for every heart to be already ablaze with this fiery passion for God!”

I ask that you would consider sowing into this Harvest of souls in Pakistan through prayer and financial support. There are seasons for sowing and there are seasons for going; and when converged, they bear a beautiful Harvest of fruit…the greatest of which is SOULS!!! Sow the seed that bears eternal fruit. Every seed sown, whether through prayer or financial support, lends to the increase of Kingdom advancement!

Expect the Unexpected! 

The days have been long and hours of sleep short here in Spain. The sun sets close to ten o’clock in the evening, and we usually do not arrive back to the house until between eleven in the evening and one o’clock in the morning after a long day of ministering; where we sometimes proceed to eat dinner. The mornings are predominantly slow until around ten in the morning, depending upon which team you are on and if you have appointments for ministering to the lost here.

If there is one thing that I am learning on this trip that I could share with you, it would be that you have to live life going with the flow. More importantly, the flow of Holy Spirit! This is not a new lesson for me and I have walked through it before. However, it is one that I am learning on a deeper level. Winging it is completely not how I am wired. I operate well on a schedule and I like having a pretty clear idea of what my day is going to look like; but here in Spain that theology simply does not work. My husband has a motto that I hear quite frequently, “expect the unexpected!” I have found God reminding me of that numerous times on this adventure. Not one moment of this trip has been as expected. In fact, we missed our flights here after being stuck on the Tarmac for hours and the guys’ bags didn’t get here until yesterday.

Monday turned out to be one of those days. My partner this week, John, and I were to eat lunch with the pastors that we are aligning with, Pastor Pablo and Pastor Elsa. We met with them and enjoyed a full three course meal and spent a few hours with them at their church before we were to meet with our two appointments in the evening. What we did not expect when conversing with them is to find out the things taking place in their region; the economy is very poor with few jobs, depression, drugs, trafficking, and they were also surrounded by an amount of witchcraft that was cursing them and their church. They had also been through a wave of persecution from other ministers in the area. What I thought would be a meal for relationship building also turned into a time of encouragement them in the faith to stand strong, and a powerful time of deliverance, casting out demons, repentance, and prayer.

Expect the unexpected.

From there we headed to our appointments only to find we had lost our translator for the day and had to forego the appointments for another time; which led into spending more time with the pastors. When arriving back to the base, my mother and father-in-law were headed to an appointment with the co-worker of one of our translators and son of Pastor Abel, Israel; they invited us, so we tagged along.

Expect the unexpected.

We met up with Israel, and his friend, David. David did not believe in God and from what I understand had an interesting perspective on how all creation existed; that it was more so like a video game with a game master. What a perfect set-up for sharing the Gospel!!!

We sat with him and got to know him. We talked quite some time about his desire to design a video game. Then my partner, John, in one mind-blowing swoop, transitioned into the greatest battle of good v.s. evil and how there really is a grand game master in charge of it all; and how the good wins in the end! We were all astonished at this!

Expect the unexpected.

After giving the parallel of truth against David’s own perception, he allowed John to share with him the story of the Gospel through the tool we are using, the evangecube. In the end, he ended up not choosing Jesus. He saw himself and his good deeds as enough and thought perhaps there was another way; even though we had already explained that there is no other way, JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY.

What do you do in a circumstance like that after you have been rejected in preaching the Gospel? Do you beat them over the head with the Bible and try to force them see the light and choose Jesus? Do you take them to dinner and continue to spend time with them and love on them the way Jesus would? We chose the latter. You encourage yourself in the the truth from Jesus’ own mouth in Luke 10:16 “Jesus concluded His instructions to the seventy with these words: ‘Remember this: Whoever listens to your message is actually listening to Me. And anyone who rejects you is rejecting Me, and not only Me but the One who sent Me.'” We had been faithful in proclaiming the Truth of Jesus’ death and resurrection and the rest is up to God and that person. You trust in God’s promise that when His Word goes forth, it ALWAYS accomplishes what it was sent out to do. A seed was planted that will one day produce a harvest. In faith.

We went to dinner with Israel and David and built relationship. They will know Him in how well you love. Though we were disappointed David didn’t choose Jesus, we loved on him. For me, love went up to a whole notha’ level that night when I ate a whole fried baby octopus. Loving others for Jesus this trip has stretched me in many ways, including multiplying my prayer of blessing on what I was to consume: “Lord, wherever You lead me, I’ll follow; whatever You feed me, I’ll swallow!” I got to add another tag onto that prayer that night: “Lord, I’ll put it down; You help me keep it down!”

My challenge to you today is that you would seriously ask yourself this question: Am I fully submitted to being used of God in HIS way and HIS time, NOT my own? 

That morning in prayer with the team over the day that was ahead of us, I heard the Lord say, “Expect the unexpected!” In telling me that, He was inviting me out of my own agenda and into HIS divine design for the day.

Proverbs‬ ‭16:1-7‬ ‭(TPT‬‬)
“Go ahead and make all the plans you want, but it’s the Lord who will ultimately direct your steps. We are all in love with our own opinions, convinced they’re correct. But the Lord is in the midst of us, testing and probing our every motive. Before you do anything, put your trust totally in God and not in yourself. Then every plan you make will succeed. The Lord works everything together to accomplish His purpose. Even the wicked are included in His plans— He sets them aside for the day of disaster. Exalting yourself is disgusting to the Lord, for pride attracts His punishment— and you can count on that! You can avoid evil through surrendered worship and the fear of God, for the power of His faithful love removes sin’s guilt and grip over you. When the Lord is pleased with the decisions you’ve made, He activates grace to turn enemies into friends.”

If you found yourself in the same boat as me, will you join me in a fresh surrender to HIS WAY and not our own? Will you ask Him how you can partner with Him in His grand plan for your life today? 

I promise you this: HIS WAY WILL ALWAYS BE BETTER THAN OUR OWN. It will also ALWAYS PRODUCE THE GREATEST ETERNAL FRUIT!

Proverbs‬ ‭16:9‬ ‭(TPT‬‬)
“Within your heart you can make plans for your future, but the Lord chooses the steps you take to get there.”

We are but vessels.

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.'”

Raising Up Martyrs

For the past few days I have been pondering and dwelling on a thing with the Lord. I find myself going back to this past Sunday when I was teaching the youth at our church. For months now, the Lord has been leading me to teach about the Harvest. I taught out of John 4 for a few months through the end of last year and into the new year; followed by teaching out of the end of Matthew 9:27-38 and on into Matthew 10.

I fully expected to teach from Matthew 10:7-8, And as you go, preach this message: ‘Heaven’s Kingdom realm is accessible (at hand), 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.However, He chose to lead it in a completely different direction and not even really talk about Matthew 10 in the way I thought. He led the conversation into teaching about martyrdom to youth under the age of fourteen.

While this isn’t your typical idea of what a Sunday morning teaching and discipleship for youth would look like; He planted seeds of holy pursuit, zealous passion, and awakened compassion. I shared the stories of modern-day martyrs, Jim Elliot, along with his four friends while attempting to reach the Huaorani tribe in Ecuador; and this past year, John Chau, who gave up his life to reach the highly isolated tribe on North Sentinel Island.

All-consuming love for Jesus and to bring Him the reward of His suffering has marked those who have given up everything, including their very lives, to go to the ends of the earth for love. God is awakening His compassion unto action in this generation. This very thing is what so moved Jesus’ heart for the lost in His day.

Matthew 9:35-38 (TPT)
“Jesus walked throughout the region with the joyful message of God’s Kingdom realm. He taught in their meeting houses, and wherever He went He demonstrated God’s power by healing every kind of disease and illness. When He saw the vast crowds of people, Jesus’ heart was deeply moved with compassion, because they seemed weary and helpless, like wandering sheep without a shepherd. He turned to His disciples and said, ‘THE HARVEST IS HUGE AND RIPE! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in. AS YOU GO, PLEAD with the Owner of the Harvest to THRUST out many more reapers to harvest His grain!'”

When Jesus saw the crowds of people, compassion overtook Him and He was gripped by it because when He looked upon them, He saw a lost, hurting, broken, abandoned, addicted, wandering, worn, helpless, harassed, distressed, shepherd-less, scattered people, condemned to an eternity of separation and torment in hell. The literal translation of their state is as if they had been flayed, skinned alive, and mangled. He saw their great need of a Deliverer and Savior.

I believe that perhaps He not only saw the crowds that were before Him, but also caught a glimpse or vision of the vast multitudes that would come who resembled the same state. Perhaps upon seeing this, He thought back on God’s desire to co-labor with His creation to carry out His will in the earth. For it is when seeing this reality that He turned to His disciples and presented the problem.
The harvest is huge and ripe, where are they who would partner with Me in gathering it in?
No sooner did He present the problem did He provide the solution. As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out many more reapers to harvest His grain!” He then commissioned His disciples to GO, and as they went, to PLEAD that He would THRUST out more laborers.

In other words, “I am sending (EKBALLO-ing) you to be the answer; and I command you to plead (BEG) Me to hurl (EKBALLO) forth more laborers into the Harvest as you go!”

This is His divine commissioning — He expects and commands us to go!

Upon this command we see going into Matthew 10, that He imparted to them authority and power to do as He had done. We are then brought back to Matthew 10:7-8 as stated above. The disciples had been marked by a zeal that had consumed them. When you have become so marked and consumed by this holy passion and fire, you become unstoppable; for the Unstoppable One dwells within you. This very thing is what led the apostles to say to the leaders in their day who told them to stop sharing about Jesus, “We cannot help but to speak what we have seen and known to be true!” (Acts 4:18-20

Thinking on this, I asked Holy Spirit why He directed the teaching to martyrdom and what it means for the Body of Christ. He replied,

“I did it because it is time to level up! It is time to stop spoon-feeding this generation of believers with a comfortable gospel!

IT IS TIME TO GO ALL IN! YOU ARE EITHER ALL IN OR NOT IN AT ALL!

There is no age-requirement to My command and call! There is only one requirement: a simple person being simply obedient! If you train up a child in the way they should go, when they are older, they will not depart from it! This generation and the ones to come possess a passion and tenacity that I placed within them to scale the heights, undaunted, fearless, and unrelenting.

Are you willing to lay down your life for My Kingdom to be advanced and established in the earth? Are you willing to lay down your life for souls?Do not neglect to train and equip them in the FULL Gospel of Truth; for some of them will indeed lay down their very lives for My name’s sake and the sake of souls, some even at a young age. They MUST be properly trained and prepared. This can only be done by example. I prepared and equipped My disciples by setting the example. I laid down My very life for the sake of the world.

Indeed, some of you will. But do not continue until you count the cost. I have come to set you on fire that others will come and watch you burn. Like a wildfire, it will be caught and spread across boundary lines, state lines, water lines, and dividing lines.  You must warn them to step up and step out; for I am coming! Sooner than they think! But not until every tribe, every tongue, and every nation has been given the opportunity to come to Me! This is only done through your obedience and the faithful obedience of My Bride.”

I dwelled deeply on this word last night and He reminded me of Acts 1:8, the last thing Jesus said to His apostles before He ascended into Heaven.

Acts 1:8 (TPT)
“But I promise you this—the Holy Spirit will come upon you and you will be filled with POWER. And you will be My MESSENGERS (witnesses) to Jerusalem, throughout Judea, the distant provinces—even to the remotest places on earth!”

The word for “power” is “dunamis“, which is where we get the word, “dynamite“. The word for “messengers” or “witnesses” is “martus“, which is the word, “martyr“. It is as if He was saying, “Holy Spirit is coming and will baptize you and fill you with an explosive power that will catapult you to be martyrs for My Kingdom to the ends of the earth!”

I am reminded of the week after I returned from The Send. I had received such a fresh baptism of fire and a fresh commission to Go! Two days into the week, I overheard my three-year old son singing, “I will preach the Gospel, die and be forgotten, as long as You get the glory!” On another occasion I heard him singing, “I will love You with my ‘Yes’ and with my obedience, Jesus!”, and “It’s my joy to lose my life and find it in Jesus Christ.”

Azariah in tears, being overwhelmed by Holy Spirit in prayer.

I wept then as I do now; and not for the reason that many would think. I am filled with abounding joy and am proud of my son that even though he is young, his heart is stirring to yearn for Jesus and to go to any length to love Him and partner with Him in His grand plan of salvation and setting the earth on fire. That he desires to carry out his own destiny and purpose created for him from before the foundations of the earth were laid.

This is what we are to do. We are to first become martyrs. Then we are to raise up and train others to become martyrs. We are all called to be martyrs for Jesus. Some of us will laid down our very lives for this cause for He is worthy; however, all of us are called to be faithful witnesses to what we have seen and known to be true. Jesus is the One Who is Faithful and True. 

The Spirit of Prophecy is the testimony of Jesus. When we testify, we prophesy!

My prayer is this:
God, awaken us all to Your call! Awaken us to our purpose in the earth: to proclaim, train, and send. Father, baptize us in a holy compassion for the lost that would so grip us as it did You; and that we would stop at nothing to go to the ends of the earth for love! May we lay down our very lives for the lost to know You. Come what may, we will go with You! Here we are God! Send us! The wisdom of God is foolish in the eyes of the world; but still we go with You! May we partner with You and be fire starters that set nations ablaze for Your glory; and may we train up martyrs for Your Kingdom! May we never relent in this great ascent!

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”
