The Importance of The One (Southeast Asia)

I have been back in the states for a few days now, but it is still almost unreal where I have gone and what God has done with me. For me, a normal person who said “Yes, I will follow”, it is almost unbelievable what God has done. After a week, 10 teams of three and four came back with an offering to the Lord of 4,612 souls. This is not including the healing, encouragement, and freedom that was ministered to countless people, churches, and other organizations. I praise God that I was able to contribute an offering to give glory to His name!!!

As I think back to some of the most powerful encounters with what God did over the trip, I am reminded of the importance of stopping for the one. All throughout Scripture, Jesus is teaching and ministering to large crowds of people, but is frequently interrupted by the one. One person needs some special attention, healing, freedom, or salvation. When this happens, Jesus does not ignore them and continue on to minister to the crowd, but gives them as much love, compassion, and care as the large crowds. He takes the time to minister to the one. 

Even though we literally saw thousands of people come to know the Lord, the most powerful times were when God brought the one. The time I felt the most powerful move of God was for one person. God orchestrated things for me to preach at an evening service in a large church. The pastor of this church had some personal problems, but had still invited me to come and speak. Before even going, I was told not to expect anyone to come forward for an invitation time because it was culture for them to commit to follow Jesus later during a personal meeting with the pastor.

As I worshipped, I felt the presence of God in a mighty way, and as I spoke the word, I was experiencing part of His heart of compassion for the people. Although it has rarely happened, God moved me to tears as I called for His lost sons and daughters to come to their Good Father. No one moved, but I knew I was here for this purpose so I continued to press in. After some time, one lone girl in pink came down and knelt at the altar. She broke the cultural expectations, in front of over 100 people, and courageously came to The Good Father. Not too long after that three more came. I was so overcome, I could not even lead them in a prayer, but left that to the translator to do. As I went down and prayed for each one, the floor was wet with the tears of the this teenage girl. She remained there weeping for the whole ministry time as we prayed for the sick. Afterwards, the over abundance of joy that was exuding out of her was evidence that she had been changed. This is why I was there, for this one girl. The others were just a bonus from God for my obedience.

You may not be called at this moment to go and evangelize on a street corner to dozens of people or preach in a church or conference to hundreds or thousands. However, you are called to the one who does not know. One neighbor, family member, friend, or co-worker is who you are called to speak to. One cashier needs to hear the Truth. One worker in a store has been prepared to receive. One person at the park is hurting and in need. That is who you are called to no matter who you are.

I encourage you today, begin to look around you for the one who is hurting, lost, in need. Pray for them, then open your mouth and speak the truth that is in you. As you are faithful to shine the light that is in you, God will be faithful to bring more to you. Never forget, at one time, you were the one that needed someone to speak the truth to you and to be shown the heart of a Good Father. May God bless you to be the one to minister His heart to the one today, this week, and for the rest of your life!!!

Matthew 18:14 So it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones be lost. 

Isaiah 64:4 For since the beginning of the world Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits for Him.

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!

Valiant for Truth

Daily Encouragement –
Do you know Me? Do you understand Me? Do you really want to? Do you seek Me out to know The Truth or are you comfortable living in deception? 

Ignorance is not bliss! Many people would rather deceive themselves into thinking everything is okay rather than doing the work of seeking and knowing Me, The Truth, The Way, The Life. You are not one of those. 

You have been called to be valiant for The Truth on earth. You are a warrior to bring forth The Truth of Jesus in this world. You must come to Me and know Me that all deception will be destroyed around you, and Jesus will shine brightly out of you! 

When you truly come to understand and know Me, this is an indescribable reward. I am more than you will ever need. I will still blow your mind every time you come to Me if you desire to know Me. Come and know Me anew today!!! I love you My child!!! 

Jeremiah 9:3, 6, 24 “They are not valiant for the truth on the earth.
For they proceed from evil to evil,
And they do not know Me,” says the Lord…
“Your dwelling place is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know Me,” says the Lord… 
“But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the Lord.

Greater Than Jesus?

Daily Encouragement Dec 5 –

Are you greater than I am? Are you truly following Me? Are you walking as I walked? 

I was sent into the world to bear witness of The Father, The Truth. I never prayed to be taken out of the world or moved somewhere else. This world is hard and fear, son, darkness, and death are around every corner. But do not fear! I am with you! 

I never prayed for Myself or My own to be taken out of the horrible unpleasant situations we were in. Where I was, was where I was sent! That is where I was sent to serve. 

When you pray to be taken out of the darkness instead of shining My light where you are, you are saying you are more important and greater than I Myself did. Pray for strength to shine brightly and bear witness of the Truth for I am always with you no matter where you are!!! I love you My child!!!

John 17:15-19  I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but that You keep them and protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth [set them apart for Your purposes, make them holy]; Your word is truth. 18 Just as You commissioned and sent Me into the world, I also have commissioned and sent them (believers) into the world. 19 For their sake [e]I sanctify Myself [to do Your will], so that they also may be sanctified [set apart, dedicated, made holy] in [Your] truth.

100% Both and More!!!

Daily Encouragement –

You must become like Me!!! As you really come to know Me, you will be changed into My image. The more you are changed into My image, the more you will be able to truly know Me and become like Me!

I am a God of grace and truth, peace and boldness, power and love, spirit and life!!! Many times, you focus too much on My grace and forget the truth, or you overemphasize My truth and leave out My grace. Focusing on one without the other leads to deception, false thinking and wrong actions. 

I am 100% grace, 100% truth and so much more!!! You must walk deeper with Me and know who I am so you become like Me. You are My light to this world! Shine brightly and truly, My light, for all to see!!! 

Come close to Me!!! Know Me!!! And walk in line with My character as I walked in this world. I love you My child!!!

John 1:14 “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

Chosen to Carry Truth

Daily Encouragement Oct 19 –

You are my vessel of Truth and Light in this world!!! I have spoken and declared the Truth to all mankind and displayed My light for all to see. It is your job to keep doing this wherever you are at this moment.

I do not want anyone to walk in darkness, deception, despair, or death. I have placed the Light of Truth in you, and I need you to shine brightly!!! So many people around you need what you have inside. 

All must come to know Me that they may press in and be set free. Everyone must have this opportunity, and you are the one I have chosen right here, right now to carry The Truth. 

Go out and speak The Truth, shine the light for all to see and hear. This will bring freedom and life to those in bondage and darkness. You are My Child, and I love you!!! Go and speak that all may see and come to Me!!!

John 1:12-13 (AMP) But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name— 13 who were born, not of blood [natural conception], nor of the will of the flesh [physical impulse], nor of the will of man [that of a natural father], but of God [that is, a divine and supernatural birth—they are born of God—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified].

Light of Truth

Daily Encouragement – 

I am strengthening Truth in your life!!! Walking in The Truth means no deception, great or small, may have its way with you. The enemy is a master deceiver and wants to bring doubt and deception into your life without you realizing it. 

When My Truth comes, these things cannot be hidden but will be revealed. You will no longer be able to live in deceiving yourself or others in the rationalization of sin. You will not be able to accept the subtle lies of the world, or words spoken out in supposed wisdom. The wisdom of this world is foolishness to Me and My Kingdom. 

My Kingdom is one of Truth! No lie, no darkness can stand when the light of the Truth shines out of Me. Come to Me, and I will brighten the darkest places of who you are and cause you to shine. I love you My child!!! 

1 John 1:5-6 God is Light [He is holy, His message is truthful, He is perfect in righteousness], and in Him there is no darkness at all [no sin, no wickedness, no imperfection]. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness [of sin], we lie and do not practice the truth;
