Dear Friends, Intercessors and Zion Aligned:
For the first time in history, we celebrated Pentecost 2008, 5768. I also enjoyed my best birthday ever. Being 55 has a great benefit in that I was blessed to read Isaiah 55 again and have the Lord remind me "that His ways are not my ways!" You have a GLORY in you that the Lord is trying to unlock. You are being reformed so that GLORY can be seen by others and you become favored to transform your sphere.
THE SPOON OF GOD IS STIRRING THIS LAND
One word that came forth this past weekend at our Pentecost Gathering had to do with the Lord "taking His spoon and stirring the mud of Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and other states in the Midwest/central part of our nation." I saw the mud and the Lord said, "I will take My spoon and stir and stir and reform this portion of our nation." This was on Friday.
Then the rains began. Here is a word from Francis Frangipane: "As some of you are aware, we are experiencing major flooding here in Iowa, especially in downtown Cedar Rapids, but also in other communities as well. The flooding here is at 'historic' levels, yet it is still mostly limited to areas along the rivers in Cedar Rapids. As I write, I was just notified that Homeland Security has just closed the main highways and bridges into and through Cedar Rapids. This weather/flooding is being hailed as a '500 year flood.'"
After releasing this word from the Lord, I went to our book, "Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation." This is the only historic, prophetic book we have. I reviewed the prophecies recorded over these central states. When Dutch Sheets and I went to Wisconsin, the Lord said, "This will be My RIVER STATE. Watch when all the rivers rise!" If you do not have this book, I encourage you to purchase a copy and use it as a prayer and watchman guide. These are such interesting times.
I have been meditating on the power of our Creator to create. The hovering power of the Spirit of God and the speaking voice of our Creative Lord can break any power of chaos around us and create a new order out of our confusion. If you do not know Him, know that He created you with a purpose and desires to commune with you. He is the Executive Director of the earth.
Many of us do not recognize that all that happens in our lives will work toward His best and will become of ultimate benefit to us if we will only submit and praise. The more you align with His creative power, the less anxiety you will experience. Listen deeply within your heart and spirit for His voice. All He does is for your good. If you will listen, you will sense a peace that goes beyond any human calmness.
We must guard ourselves from high levels of stress. Many of our health problems are a result of stress and anxiety. If we will listen to and submit ourselves to Him in chaotic situations, circumstances, and overall atmospheric upheavals, we will find our lives aligning with the God who created us who can work order in the midst of confusion.
We must strive to experience joy in doing His will. Remove discouragement from your vocabulary! If you will do that, you will find that the flaws in your character and your faulty self-image will realign with God's best. You will then have strength to reach goals you could never attain through human reasoning, self-evaluations, and personal judgments. This is a season for you to see the best that the Lord has placed in you.
This Tuesday in prayer, the Lord gave me Psalm 16:5-11: "O LORD, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup! You maintain my lot. I will bless the LORD who has given me counsel. My heart also instructs me in the night seasons. I have set the LORD always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices! My flesh also will rest in hope...You will show me the path of life! In Your presence is fullness of joy!"
You have a Glory in you that the Lord is calling forth. Let YOUR GLORY rejoice and watch the iniquities in your bloodline flee.
This morning I kept hearing the words over and over "You have been marked for a miracle! You have been marked for a miracle! You have been marked for a miracle!" As I sat with the Lord to listen to His heart, a vision opened up in front of my eyes and I was taken up above the United States of America and I saw a huge "target" upon her, but when I looked closer it was a target that was placed there through the open door of wrong alignments, ungodly governmental decisions and curses spoken over the nation. I could hear the enemy laughing as he moved throughout the nation wreaking havoc, stealing, killing and destroying. As I could hear the enemy laughing, I then heard the sound of an even louder laugh.
I grew up Methodist and learned that when John Wesley went throughout the colonies, he left people with a liturgy to help them understand God and the tenets of the faith better. It's why they were called Methodists - because there were methods in place to "jump start" the activity of the Spirit. It was to keep them on track and with a rounded education, similar to what we do in our schools. It is easy for people to like one part of the message or activity and lean on that. Some are really into the music, some could care less. Some really like teaching, some really like preaching, some like the prophetic and ministry gifts, and some really like the praying for people time.
"The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me'" (Matthew 25:40). In a recent vision, I saw a man rushed into the ICU by EMTs. Only moments earlier he was badly injured in a collision with a semi, and not long after the EMTs flashed each other knowing looks, certain that he was a dead man. It was only a matter of time. In the ER, doctors frantically worked on him, trying to stop the bleeding and stabilize his erratic vital signs, while his loved ones sat, terrified, in the waiting room, bracing for bad news. Suddenly, Jesus walked into the ICU and touched the man, instantly restoring him to perfect health. Then I heard the Lord ask, "Is there a place where the spiritually injured can go to heal?"
