Dennis Drewlo

I saw a shelf with many dusty vessels. They were not much to look at. They looked as if they had been sitting there for years. If you were to look inside them, you could see that they were all filled to various levels with costly oil. They appeared to be made of a porous, yet absorbent material.

They were then taken off of the shelf, polished, and broken, and then the costly oil was released.

This is the word that I received with this:

I see, My children, that you are waiting. You are waiting to release what I have placed within you. There is costly oil within you. It cost My Son everything. There are people who need what I have placed within you. Some of you are going through a breaking so that I can release what is inside of you, for there are people who need what is inside of you.

You must fall upon the Rock and be broken, or the Rock will fall upon you.

There is coming a day when I will use ordinary vessels in extra-ordinary ways. I am about to take you "off of the shelf". First, I will repair your brokenness. You must bring your brokenness to Me. I am looking for vessels of humility who are not seeking to make a name for themselves, but who are seeking to worship My name. I am seeking faceless vessels who desire to seek My face.

I have called you to release the Fragrance of God wherever you are: in Church, at home, at your places of work, and in your neighborhoods. I have created you for such a time as this. You are not in the place where you are by accident. I have a plan and you are in it.

I will anoint your eyes so that you will see what I have placed in others, so that it can be released. I will anoint your eyes so that you will see those who need what I have placed within you. I will teach you to see the emptiness in people, so that I can fill them through you.

I have called you to a place of extravagant brokenness in your worship. My desire is that My presence would linger over you, but you must be broken. I have called you to a place of sacrifice. Come to the Throne, and we will make the exchange: everything in Me for everything in you. Be warned: it will cost you your friends, your time, your energy, your desires, and your very life. Have I not written that those who lose their lives will find them? Your sacrifice will be ridiculed by some, but it is pleasing to Me.

I have called you to a place of purity before Me. I have called you to be pure in heart. Bring before Me your motives, your thoughts, your desires, and your aspirations, and I will put them through the Fire. I will burn out the dross. I will separate the wheat from the chaff, and you will be like gold refined by fire.

Do not break My heart. Let your heart be broken. Keep yourselves clothed in humility. Do not become bound by pride, for my desire is to have pure Bride, without spot, wrinkle, or blemish.

I have called you to a place of unity. Do not fight amongst yourselves. In times of frustration - PRAY. I am looking for a unified Body. I am seeking a pure Bride, and not a wrinkled harem. When you are tempted to criticize - PRAY. I have called you to by on your knees, not up in arms. I have called you to be one unified Body, not dismembered Body parts.

Keep asking. Keep seeking. Keep knocking. For I am about to release what I have placed within you, My Church.

Tidal Wave

Cliff Light

In a dream vision, I was standing in front of my house, there were others behind me and I was looking to the EAST. Suddenly I saw a Tidal Wave approaching from far off. One of the people behind me said with puzzlement, "How could this be?" I kept observing the wave but not so much with fear because knowing the power of God in me I was not afraid.

The wave was different though, it was alive and in the midst of it were living fountains shooting high into the sky. Part of the wave did not change it's tidal form on the right but on the left were living fountains.

I know that this represents God's move of glory covering the earth. I understand the living fountains to be the spectacular power and presence of God that will soon be upon us, but the part of the wave that remained a wave, could be symbolic of judgment upon the wicked.

The Wave came out of the EAST, so that confirms to me that it is of the LORD.

In the dream vision I did not understand what I was seeing so I commanded the wave with a loud voice in Jesus name and told it to stop. I acted on instinct and did exactly what I would do in the spirit or in the natural, I do not really think what I said had any significance, God was just showing me what is coming.

It could mean that even I will not understand or accept everything that the wave brings because it will be so radical, and it could also be irrelevant concerning what I said.

When I got out of bed I heard the song by the 5th Dimension (Age of Aquarius).

In the vision, I was looking to the East, I saw the springing fountains of water on the left, but the right side of the wave remained the same. If you think of it as God coming forth out of the East the living waters would be on His right hand and the waters of judgment would be on His left. The wave may be symbolic of the grace and the severity of God, in the right hand is grace and in the left hand is judgment.

Isaiah 11:9

They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.


Ebb Tide Of Renewal

by Ray Skelton

To The Remnant Who Would rather die of thirst than drink from the cup of mediocrity

Have we once again seen the rip tide of revival ebb and flow back out on the horizon of time?

We who sat on the shore line of fallen humanity waiting to heard the roaring of the waves, hoping that this was it. Only to see it overtaken with the stench of flesh with people struggling to gain control, to claim leadership to proclaim it as their ministry, their rights and calling.

Where are the Servants of The Lord in this hour?

Where is the manifest Presence of the Glory?

Where is the Name of Jesus being lifted up?

Have we seen history repeating itself as in the days of the Jesus Movement ? The fervour and fire of passion to reach a lost and dying world extinguished by programs.

Have we once again we witnessed fallen humanity taking control and tarnishing the hope of the redeemed community for revival?

Is there any sure word for the Remnant?

To those of you who came forth to touch the hem of His garment and received new life.

To those of you who rejoiced at the knowledge of His truth and said, "Here am I, Lord send Me".

To those of you who set out in human enthusiasm to conquer the forces of darkness.

To those of you who have been waiting in disappointment for ministries that have not appeared.

There is a Word in due season for you

He has brought you through the pathway of faith, which has been a way of difficulty and a way of testing. He has not set before you the ways of man, but the Way of God, a way from faith to faith, testing to testing, and joy unto joy.

It is a way of enduring all things that are set before us as servants and friends. In spite of the suffering, and in all of these things "being more than a conqueror or overcomer through faith in your Lord Jesus. This is the faith that we in this generation are contending for daily.

Satan stands as the ever present deceiver, never giving up in his task to undermine and destroy the work of God through any means he can. You well know that he must be overcome and that you must walk through the door of faith to overcoming victory.

Your Light affliction is but for a moment

Know that you can commit the keeping of your soul unto Him, as unto a faithful creator (1 Peter 4:19). Therefore, endure all things and suffer all things and commit your doubts to the overcoming work of Jesus; don't be discouraged at the trial; of your faith: "..Beloved, consider it not strange the fiery trial that is to try you.." I have called for "Gold tried in the fire.." in these last times; this is what I must have to pour forth my anointing oil upon.

Do not become like the Children of Ephraim

In Psalm 78 we have an account which would be a nightmare to any king, it's the account of total failure of a national defence system in it's greatest hour of need. "The children of Ephraim being armed and carrying bows turned back in the day of battle" (1 Samuel 4:1-22) The protectors of the nation, the leaders of defence, those that had seen the conquest of Canaan. Men in training for years, the slayers of giants, men skilled in every kind of warfare. Men trained for the finest hour, to step forward onto the stage of time to change the course of world history. Men who had walked in the shadow of the Almighty God of Israel.

What did they do? they turned Back!

When did they do it? On the day of Battle!

What did they lack that caused such action?

David penned the painful truth (Ps 78:8) They where a generation that set not their hearts aright and whose spirit was not steadfast with God. All the training in the world, all conferences, all the tapes books read cannot take the place of a steadfast heart.

In John 21 the resurrected Christ makes his way along the shoreline and cries out to his wayward disciples. His voice carries across the waves, He calls out to those who had abandoned Him. He called out to those seeking success in another venture. He called out to those who had returned to their old ways. He calls....FRIENDS FRIENDS FRIENDS words of restoration.

The resurrected Saviour of the World walked upon the beach, collected the firewood, light a fire, cooks some fish for those who had abandoned him.

To those who have been disappointed by circumstances. To those who have seen fallen humanity in leadership.

To those who would rather die of thirst than drink from the cup of mediocrity.

It is time to return to the shores of fallen humanity with the Gospel message of restoration.

It is time we plunge in with both feet and proclaim to this world that Jesus really cares about our destiny.

It is time to heed his word and step out in the boldness of resurrection life and touch the lives of fallen humanity with hope and life.

I Am Calling You To Order

Marsha Burns

I am calling you to order. Get your house in order both physically and spiritually, for I tell you that in the days ahead I need your undivided attention. You cannot be of maximum benefit in My kingdom when you are in disarray. Every place of disorder is a place where you lack authority. Haven't I said that you will rule and reign with Me? I tell you the truth, you will go forth in power and authority, but only to the degree that you maintain propriety. It is time to protect yourself from extraneous digression, from things having no relevance to life in My kingdom.

I keep hearing in my spirit this morning, "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue." I believe there is going to be a unique marriage between the supernatural moves of the Holy Spirit of times past (something old) and what is just ahead (something new). What will be borrowed is the anointing from men and women of God who were used mightily in years past, which will be elevated to Third-Day anointing represented by something blue.

A couple of weeks ago I had a dream that I had a new dress and new shoes, the style of which was reminiscent of the "old days" and yet strikingly modern. In the same dream, I was standing at the edge of the freeway, and I saw my car going down the highway by itself. The dream ended with me running to catch up to my vehicle, which represented ministry.

And the Lord says: Get ready to move with My Spirit, for I have prepared you for such a time as this and will release you into a greater anointing than ever has been or ever will be again. I am liberating you to move freely by My Spirit to accomplish the work of the kingdom and bring in the harvest. In times past I have used My chosen vessels for singular purposes. Some have been used to bring forth healing, others for miracles, others for deliverance, others for evangelism and others for various facets of My kingdom work and commission. But, I say to you now, you will no longer be limited by specialized effort. Your limitations and boundaries will be set by your faith and vision.

Faith Tabernacle

Hesitating Between Opinions
by Rick Joyner

And Elijah came near to all the people and said, "How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him." But the people did not answer him a word (I Kings 18:21).

Our recent presidential election dilemma seems to be an accurate depiction of the spiritual state of the country. We are divided almost exactly right down the middle. Like the Mississippi River that divides the nation, and continually drifts from one side to the other, public opinion is generally so centrist that the extremes on either side can push it a little to one side or the other. It will then resist the pressure and swing back toward the middle. Is this good or bad?

The economic interests of this country consider it a good thing. Wall Street leaders stated that their hope for the election was a continued "gridlock in Washington." Wall Street is doing fine just the way things are, so they do not want the boat rocked in either direction. They prospered when one party controlled the White House and the other one controlled congress. They like the huge budget surpluses. They want them to keep piling up, and they do not want anyone to come in with enough influence to start spending it.

For the moral interests of America, gridlock seems definitely to be a bad thing-but is it? It can be either a great tragedy, or it can be a great opportunity. It will be a tragedy if the good people of this nation continue to sit back and wait for the government to do what they are called to do. It can be a great opportunity if the good people arise and take the moral and spiritual leadership that they are called to take. My prayers will always be for the Lord to give us righteous leaders who will stand for righteousness, truth, and justice. However, I do not believe that the destiny of this nation, or any nation, is found in its civil government, but in the church. Prayer can accomplish more than any election.

The world has been shocked by just how fragile the government of the greatest democracy in the world has proven to be. The whole nation voted, but it seems that it may be just a few people who live in a single county, or even a single, local judge who decides who sits in the most powerful political office on earth. Circumstances have now set the stage so that when one is finally chosen, one half of the nation will feel that they were cheated. Whoever wins may face being in the most powerful office in the world, without much power. Wall Street may love it for a while, but even their prosperity is based on the faith of the people in the system, and that faith has the potential of being seriously eroded, with the result being a massive economic decline.

We are likely to also find that much of the remaining morality in America is based more on civic morality than a true faith in God and His standards. The stage is being set for the true heart of the nation to be revealed. We will not like what we see. Many who have thought that they were worshiping the true God will find that they have in fact only been worshiping the idols fashioned by our culture. We are in desperate need for the church to arise with the prophetic resolution of Elijah to stand for the one and only true God, and have the power to demonstrate that He is the one and only true God. This is not the power of the vote, but the power of the Holy Spirit. As we are told in I Corinthians 4:20, "For the kingdom of God does not consist in words, but in power." Before the church will be released with this desperately needed power, we too must stop hesitating between all of the worldly opinions.

The Lord is not a Republican or a Democrat. He is not coming to take sides, but to take over. He is not going to come back because of the will of the people, but because of the will of the Father. The church in America does not need the ability to win votes, but we need a return to our true Source of power. Then, as the great apostle declared in I Corinthians 2:4, we too will be able to say "And my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power." We need the ability to supernaturally demonstrate His power to men so that all of those who worship other gods come to clearly understand that He alone is the one true God.

My main concern is not the indecisiveness of the American people as much as it is the indecisiveness of the church in America. If the church in America had voted for moral truth rather than their idols and their pocket books, this election would not have even been close. The Lord Himself warned the last church that He addressed in the book of Revelation: "I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I would that you were cold or hot. 'So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth (Revelation 3:15-16).

Recent studies have revealed that there is no longer a moral difference between those who claim to be born again Christians and non-Christians. I am concerned about the outcome of the election, and am praying for my country, but I am far more concerned about the general lack of prophetic resolution on the part of the church in America. When the church awakens from her own moral depravity, and spiritual stupor, there will be a witness of the One and only true God. Then the "prophets of Baal" will be silenced.


Prophetic Maturation

Flo Lamar

Dear List,

Tonight I was going through my email letters and discovered this letter. I would like to respond to Adrienne in his letter concerning thoughts of Prophetic Maturation. It is deeply encouraging to hear someone out there encourage instead of put down or give nothing at all. There are some of us that need to be encouraged in the ministries God has put into our lives. The prophetic can take some bad raps. Personally I believe with all my being that God has always intended to speak to us and bring us into a close relationship with him, but many of us are too busy to hear him so God sends someone or something else to get our attention. I tend to lean more towards God's love and mercy than anything else out there. I know that God is a God of love and desires us to walk in that love while we are still dwelling on this earth.

One thing I struggle with is I either can't fit in very long in a church, or we are sent to churches by the Holy Spirit and there awaits rejection. Part of our training I guess. I know that anyone who has the prophetic ministry on their life will be rejected, but where is the acceptance, and where is the love among the brethren? I feel so much grief in the churches and pain and compromise that it tears me inside. I love the Holy Spirit so much and don't want to see him hurt. Maybe I am too protective. My husband pulls us out after intercession has been laid down when there will be no response. I have been open to open my heart to allow the Holy Spirit free reign in my life to use me in any way he has chosen for me. I do with all my heart see the church so asleep that it hurts. Even as I go to present these cries to the Lord I deeply feel that they are too heavy for my spirit to hold. We stayed until my husband gave the release to go and left on loving terms. The pastor said it was God leading us out.

Sometimes I feel so alone even in the organized churches. I see where we are missing it. A lot of us don't want to deal with our sins and make things right again. The cry of my heart is, where is there a place who are not running the numbers, who are not entertaining, who are not clickish. It is so hard for me moving to a new state and a new city and not knowing anyone and trying to find a house fellowship that truly loves Jesus.

Where are the mentors? Why are things so quiet? Why can't others in leadership give up their fears? Why is their so much competition. I cry out for unity. Where is the sensitivity in others so they can encourage those people, like me. Where are the Fathers out there that will lovingly demonstrate to us growing and learning in the prophetic.

There are so many things I still don't understand that happen around me. Where are the tools to help us get there. There are people out there who don't even know who they are yet, and if someone would get closer to God they would. I am so done playing church. I have the most loving friendship with God but I am seeking for deeper understanding in the prophetic. There was a time in my life when I was so free to allow the Holy Spirit to flow through me in a church, but when that freedom got usurped by leadership and more than once I began to be afraid to speak out. I am in a place now where I do not know what to do. We are not presently attending a fellowship because we see the same thing, entertainment. Please understand, I used to play church when I was a child, but I am grown up and I know the truth. I do not like this party spirit and I always seem to get brunted by a Jezebel spirit in one. My husband is protective over me because of my sensitivity to the Lord.

No one wants to take the time out with others to help them because they are too busy building their own kingdoms. I am not interested in building a kingdom of my own, but the one Jesus has put in all of us , His.

Are there people out there that are committed in love to encourage others like me when we feel so alone and hurt. I wonder if we have lost our love for one another because I don't see much here. I am not interested in religion but in finding my place in the body of Christ. There are so many misfits that don't fit in and they are rejected, but where is the love?????

When a person finds out from others that that ministry is on them they need a mentor to help them. So this can increase the Kingdom of God. Anyone out there understand what we are going through? I am so open for encouragement right now. We await for the next orders of command. Are we to stay away from the organized church? Where are the true believers? We are so hungry for fellowship with believers.

sincerely a desperate heart,

By Shelleymae Bartlett

During Worship the Lord gave me a moving picture (if you will). I saw a picture that He has showed me once before of a house on a strong foundation on/in the banks of a river.

Although I recognized the house to be me from the vision I had had before, I felt in my spirit it too, represented the "Church" as well. Jesus was standing there and He reached out & touched the heart of the house that was beating for Him & then I saw a tree and it were as though the tree and the house were one in the same.

Have you ever rested next to someone you loved and could feel their heart beating or hear them breathing to where you were concentrating so much on it that before you knew it you became synchronized with the very beat and breath of that person?

Well, this is what I believe I saw... As His hand rested on the heart of the house I could hear and feel the rhythm pulsating. Mine and then His as though I were coming into tune with Him. (And the tree also) till it were as though we were one with Him, sharing the same heart as now I could hear and feel the river as though we were in harmony, synchronized in the beat & flow of the song of the River itself.

This is the word the Lord then gave me.....

I desire a Fruitful Tree. I AM The FRUITFUL VINE. Abide thou in Me as I AM the UMBILICAL CORD to your soul.

It is I alone who can supply you with the strength and nourishment you need.
It is I alone who will supply ALL your needs.
I Am ALL you need.

Yes, I AM the RIVER OF LIFE who fortifies and strengthens you.
Flow thou in ME that I might flow in and through you.

Let your roots grow deep where I plant you. Dig Deep Into The Things Of ME,
Saith your GOD, your LORD, and SAVIOR.
Then you will see and hear things clearly~
Then you will see and know and understand.

I desire to be one with thee, and I desire to set you free.

Let go of your own thoughts. Let go of your own ways.
Let go of the traditions that man has placed upon you, for behold I AM doing a NEW THING and I AM creating a NEW MAN.

Grow up into ME. Press in and come behind the veil, the veil of your own understanding, the veil of your carnal mind.

It is your heart I desire~ Your whole heart.
Oh MY people will you not let ME have it?
Will you not let ME tear away the old and replace it with the new.

Oh how I desire you. I so desire to bless thee.
To enlarge your hearts, to enlarge your dwelling places.

I have Promised thee a Land FULL of Promises.
A Land Full of Hopes and Dreams.
A Land that is Fruitful, Full of Milk and Honey.

But did I not tell you that there would be giants, that there were giants in the Land?
And did I not tell you that you are more then conquers through ME.
And that IN ME There is GREAT VICTORY.
In MY NAME is EVERYTHING you need!

Oh MY people Stand thou and Rest IN ME Fully.
Let ME grow in you and around you.
I AM The UMBILICAL CORD to nourish and strengthen your soul.

Pick ye up the Stone from the River, The WORD OF GOD.
And let MY SPIRIT Guide you, that you can go forth and conquer ALL IN MY NAME.

Yes, stay in the River of MY WORD, that when you bow before ME, thou will see thine own reflection of ME.
For I desire thee to be like ME.
I desire to bring thee into the Kingdom where I can be KING.
Have I not promised you this also?

Oh MY people, Stand up, Stand up Straight In MY STRENGTH while yielding your hearts to ME.
Lift your voices, Lift your hands, that I might come unto thee.
Rejoice oh Trees of the Field. Rejoice and clap thine hands unto ME.

Trust thou IN ME Alone. Walk In the TRUTH of Who I AM.
Walk thou in the PROMISES I have Knitted In your hearts.

Rejoice, Rejoice for MY KINGDOM Is Coming!
Swing Wide ALL Ye Heavenly Gates For The KING OF GLORY To Come In!!!

I desire a Fruitful Tree. I AM The FRUITFUL VINE.
Abide thou in Me as I AM the UMBILICAL CORD to your soul.
It is I alone who can supply you with the strength and nourishment you need.
It is I alone who will supply ALL your needs.
I Am ALL you need.

Open your hearts Fully and Let ME come in.
That we might have a deeper fellowship, that I might strengthen thee..., and touch thee..., and heal thee...
That you may go forth and bring fruit and leaves to heal the nations.

And then you will know... Yes, you will know that I AM.

Looking to and pressing forward to the day when in Him, we are ALL one.
Always in my heart, I love you,
Humbly Submitted,

14. In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15. So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16. To those who sold doves he said, "Get these out of here! How dare you turn my Father's house into a market!" 17. His disciples remembered that it is written: "Zeal for your house will consume me." John 2

12. Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name. Rev. 3

5. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him. 6. He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?" 7. Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand." John 13

(I saw a jar of water that was before me. I watched as there were several of these jars that I was looking at. Then I began to look within the jug itself. The water was the most clear water that I have ever beheld. It was pure and very clean looking. Then a cup or ladle was dipping some of this water. Each cup would then be spread onto the feet of people. I looked at each foot that had sandals on them, and noticed how the water would then replenish it as it was poured. Then yet another cup was taken out of this jug or water and again it was poured onto the feet below.)

(Now I was shown a candelabra that held several candles on it. The room was dark and the candles that were lit on it shone out into the darkness around. I continued watching this and was attracted to the light that was there. It seemed to be the type that might be used in a cathedral because of its ornamental designs. Then all the candles went out suddenly. It was as if the "life had been snuffed out." There were many coins and money was being exchanged. It was being stuffed into brass and gold containers so that it would be kept in a safe place. There was a lot of money, both coins and currency, being shuffled around.)

Then the Lord said:

"I will now tell you what this all means...."

"I called my church to wait upon the needs of the people. I called them to wash each other's feet. I called you to be a servant. I was called to be a servant, and you are called to do the same thing as well. It is done through the "water of my Holy Spirit."

"I have many candlesticks and I have many churches. Each candlestick represents a certain body of believers. But the light has gone out in some. No longer are you washing each other's feet. Many have turned my church into a money-making project. You hoard and you keep these things for yourselves. My church is to be a house of prayer. I overturned the money changer's tables, and I drove them out of my Father's house. Many of my churches have become a place of business. Wash each other's feet. Remember how Samson put his arms out and tore the temple down? It is not a building that I AM looking for. I long for a body that would represent Me on this earth."

(This time the Lord showed me several churches. I was looking at them from above and they appeared to look small, almost like "doll houses." The reason for this was because the Lord himself was standing among them. They weren't entirely "small," it was because He was so "large" in comparison to them. He was behind a particular one, and suddenly, He pushed it over, and it fell over on its side. I watched as yet another and another, toppled over on their sides. When this was finished, He stood there in the midst of this, His light radiating forth.)

(I then looked upon a burgundy-colored curtain. It was being pulled back to show what was behind it, but then the scene faded.)

He then said:

"The temple is not made with human hands." The temple was "rent" at the time of my crucifixion. My body was broken and it was raised unto new life. The old covenant was done away with and the new one had begun; and so my temple is "with Me."

Stephen Hanson


These last few years, the body of Christ has experienced moving into "the river", as in Ezekial 47. Some have gone in to the ankles (Leper's Anointing: salvation); some to the knees: (Priestly Anointing: baptism of the Holy Spirit); and some to the loins (Kingly Anointing: reproduction in the body of Christ); and some even out so deep that they have had to swim!

But, I hear a sound of the river - not the same sound as before. But, this sound is the wind of the Holy Ghost moving the river into the mighty ocean! Those who have dared to go out deep enough in the river to swim, are about to surge forth into the depths of the mighty ocean!

Great revival is coming to the church; such as the world has never known! The depths of the wisdom and knowledge of God are going to be revealed to those who have spent time in the "holy place" and have cared enough to pursue God in His fullness.

There is no more time to play on the shore! There is no more time to be as children tossed to and fro and unstable in the things of God - wading in the shallow water. It is a time for launching forth in the fullness of the Holy Ghost such as the world has never seen!

A continual and bountiful harvest will be swept up with no time in between the "reaper and the plowman". "For the reaper shall overtake the plowman".

(Amos 9:13) "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed..."

I see lines and lines of people; eagerly waiting to receive from God from all parts of the earth. The hunger level shall rise to an unheard of degree!

I see hundreds of thousands of souls being snatched out of the fire and into the kingdom of God.

(Zech. 3:2) "....(Are not these) brands plucked out of the fire?"

I see major newspaper articles in big headlines stating supernatural miracles, signs, and wonders, among the people of God. I see crowds gathering that are so big that facilities will not be large enough to contain them.

I see multitudes of dreams and visions coming forth that the people of God have waited for for a long time. This is the day and time for the people of God to arise and go forth into the harvest fields!

(Jn. 4:35) "Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? Behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest..."

There are major changes coming in the government of the United States, such as we have never experienced before. For the world is making ready for the coming of the Lord!

In the past, there has been much talk, but little action in the church. But, now there is arising so much action in the church that time cannot be wasted any longer with talk.

The one, great thrust of the church has come! THE HARVEST!

Leaders, instead of trying to motivate people "by talk" in the past, are now motivating people "by example". And, the Holy Ghost is so seasoning the work of God that people are flocking to the work in great numbers with such excitement as has never been known to such a degree in the body of Christ!

"The actions" of the church shall now overtake "their words" to the world in the past. The world shall now see in fulness the expression of the living Christ and His Word through God's people in deed and in truth!

(I Jn. 3:18) "My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth."

I saw a thermometer. And, on that thermometer it showed what was the normal temperature of the church. But, the normal temperature of God's people was warm and in some cases, cool. But, now, it is suddenly arising to the heat of the "fire of the Holy Ghost."

It is a time when Christians must decide whether or not they will be "hot or cold". There is not in-between any longer. For time is running out. The midnight hour is approaching for the world! And, the cry of the church is growing louder each second that ticks by: "EVEN SO COME, LORD JESUS!"

Nations shall rise against nations in areas of the world, particularly in Israel and arab countries (and yes, even in Russia). Threats of war shall increase. Masses of people shall suffer loss. Geographical signs shall increase.

But, in the midst of all of these things, countries shall continue to open to the gospel miraculously with great expansion in the work of God! Telecommunications shall be spread to areas where the gospel cannot be preached any longer. God shall make a way where there seems to be no way.

God's heartbeat shall be heard louder than ever before in all countries of the world for the salvation of precious souls! Yes, the harvest is fully ripe!

A supernatural measure of love shall enter God's people, and they shall find themselves fasting and praying and sacrificing as never before without any pastor or church telling them to do so. For they shall be motivated from on high because of the critical hour that the church is living in.

Those who are not ready to pay the price, must move over and let those pass through, who are! For there shall be no stopping them! For they are charged with the power of God because of the urgency of the hour!

I see a great vial being poured forth from Heaven of healing upon those with cancer and other such serious conditions. People of God shall no longer fear disease for "none of these diseases" shall overtake them!

(Ex. 15:26) "...I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee."

There shall be the greatest healing anointing coming forth that the church has ever known! It is a fulfillment of the prophecies given to great saints of God in the past.

People of God: Do not let the world or anyone put you into its mold. For God has prepared the way that He wants you to take. Do not deviate from that way and do not compromise no matter what anyone else says or thinks.

For God is putting your feet on a straight path and there is no time to lose in the race. For the race is on! The final race is moving forward in great measure!

Let the earth rejoice! Let the people be glad! For our God reigns! He is coming in great power and glory!

And He has spoken to His church to: "Occupy 'til I come!" (Lu. 19:13)

I see a "sweep" of souls coming into the Kingdom. Whole families that have been away from God shall return as a "sweep". Sometimes it shall happen almost simultaneously.

This will be a most different year from anything the church has experienced in the past. The volume of activity shall be turned up more than it has ever been. But, it shall not be the time-wasting activities of the past but that which will count for the kingdom of God.

People who were never considered to be anything in importance in the kingdom of God shall arise in godly authority and power. They shall take the kingdom of God by force. They shall be fearless and ready to fight the kingdom of darkness.

They shall be as "diamonds in the rough" that shall be brought forth and shall be seen as the jewels that they really are.

Young people shall arise in purity and holy boldness and many "street people" and such ones, shall be brought into the kingdom of God.

Children shall lay hands upont he sick and they shall recover. Their "child-like faith" shall be rewarded and shall be an example to the world that God is truly pouring forth His Spirit upon all flesh in this day and in this hour.

Those who have been "naked spiritually" shall be clothed and ready to march forth in the army of the Lord. Christians must now incorporate all that they have learned from many meetings and seminars into the very crux of their spiritual lives. They will take the initiative to experience "joy" in the face of difficulties. They will praise, even in the midst of trouble.

And, they shall see great victories won! The enemy shall be forced to move out of the way!

(Psa. 149:6, 8) "Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their bind thier kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron."

I see husbands, who have drawn back from the things of God, suddenly arising spiritually and becoming the rightful head of their homes. And, this will cause their homes to come into spiritual order and their children to fit into the rightful order of the family, as God intended for it to be. It will cause young people to begin to respect their parents and many will return to God, who had turned away.

I see the word, "Production" for the kingdom of God, as something big. Everything else must take secondary place in order that this can come forth.

Husbands (and in some cases, wives), who are married to believers, that have been in addictions, shall be set free - yes, even after years of bondage!

And, even as we have experienced "the river", so now we shall experience the vastness and overwhelming power of the mighty ocean. For the sound of the river is heard, and it is moving swiftly into the mighty ocean!

And, the church shall arise to meet the challenge of the hour and shall dwell in the immensity of the power of God that is being poured out in this very final hour of the church. Nothing shall anymore be considered "impossible"!

And, as God's people see their faith rewarded in smaller healings and miracles, they shall arise in deeper faith that is progressive until there is no stopping them! They shall believe God for the impossible!

Believers shall exercise faith in the area of finances and receive what they need. They shall be stretched by the urgency of the hour. This process will continue as their faith grows exceedingly and much is accomplished for the kingdom of God.

The common thread through all the activity of the body of Christ shall be "souls to win for the kingdom". There can be no delay. It is the main thrust of the church and shall be until Jesus comes.

"And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." (Mt. 24:14).

A great "Apostolic" fullness shall come forth from the body of Christ and shall increase. Those who have not taken part in this, shall suddenly come alive to its ramifications and even small churches and groups shall find themselves caught up in the activity of the apostolic.

I see a working together of the gifts of Holy Spirit in the body of Christ to where people will not be able to distinguish between them - they shall flow together in perfect unity and harmony.

A "completeness" will be manifested in the gifts and callings of God; and each one who is a part of the five-fold ministry of the church will work in perfect harmony with the other. We will see what God intended for His church to be, and how He intended that it should operate - in unity, harmony and fulfillment, in this final hour of the church.

There will be an urgency in the air in the body of Christ this year which will increase until Jesus comes for His bride.

And, though demonic powers shall increase on the face of the earth; yet, houses shall be swept clean in multitudes of lives so that the Spirit of God can take up residence there.

I see scores of demons leaving areas where they had previously infested them, and gained control. For the "waste places" shall be raised up to be filled with the glory of God.

(Isa. 58:12) "And they...shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach. The restorer of paths to dwell in."

Restoration, revival, and the Apostolic (ones' sent and those building the kingdom of God) shall be the key words of this season. And, it shall happen suddenly and swiftly in places which, in some cases, have been given over to the enemy for many years.

The body of Christ will "lay down the old tools and pick up the new". The way "we have always done things in the past" will not be suitable for where we find ourselves now. The new tools will include the good traditions of the past and what God is currently doing by His Spirit on the face of the earth.

Deadness and dryness will not longer be accepted and will be shown up for what they are. Thousands of people will gravitate to churches and meetings where life is felt.

"Holiness and righteousness" shall once more be sought after by the majority of believers as they were in days of old. For the bride shall be so in love with the bridegroom that she shall be sensitized to His every desire and she shall desire above all else to have His heart and character.

I see "intercessory prayer" and "spiritual warfare" overtaking the plans of the enemy to infiltrate even this nation with false religions from the east. For, though these religious powers are great and increasing; yet it shall be demonstrated that "Greater is He who is in you; than he who is in the world."

I saw thousands of workers in the harvest field. In the first scene (representing years gone by) I saw these people all different sizes; male and female; dressed in various kinds of clothes; some in important places and others hardly being recognized.

But, in the next scene - representing this next year - I saw all of these thousands of workers looking exactly the same - you could not distinguish what sex they were; or their value or importance. They were all dressed in red; signifying the blood of the Lamb.

This vision speaks to me that there is a uniformity coming in the body of Christ to where we recognize one another as being of the same value, though differing in positions and giftings. It shall be a time of massive work done for the harvest - each one working in his independent calling and yet; all working together in unity and harmony and bringing forth abundantly for the harvest.

I see countries that have been closed to the gospel suddenly opening up and massive efforts being made for God (believers moving in) with scores finding Christ through evangelism. Yet, I see other countries that have been open to the gospel suddenly becoming near impossible to enter. Yet, "the knowledge of the glory of the Lord shall cover the whole earth, as the waters cover the seas."

God shall make a way where there seems to be no way! He shall provide a way in every country and every nation for the gospel to be heard and to be received.

The sun is setting! The world is crying out! "The Lord of the Harvest" is sending forth laborers into His harvest fields!"

(Mt. 24:45-46)"Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing."

Let those who desire unrighteousness; live in unrighteousness still. But, let those who name the name of Christ, depart from evil. Let them rise up in righteousness; true holiness; and soundness of character - let them put on the garments of praise and go forth to war with the mighty weapon of praise!

(2 Cor. 10:4) "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal; but are mighty through God; to the pulling down of strong holds."

Church of God - Arise to the occasion! Shake off every weight! And "press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus!"v Love as you have never loved before! Hate unrighteousness as you have never hated it before!

Lift up a standard for the people to follow! Lift it high! Be an example of the believer! Be so filled with the Spirit of God that others can draw from your well! Let it go deep! Be ready to mentor all who God sends to you. Recognize yourself as a minister for God.

Strive for spiritual maturity.

(2 Cor. 5:10) "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

(Rev. 3:18) "I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayuest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed..."

The day is at hand that shall declare what our works have been. But, God is purging His people and filling them with His Spirit to the degree that His righteousness, holiness, and glory shall be revealed through them in all parts of the earth. The name "Christian" has taken on little meaning to many in the past; but now its true meaning shall be known, which is "anointed one".

A massive hunger for the things of God shall be felt all around the world as never before this year and those who are hungering shall come into the things of God very quickly. They shall even go forth with the gospel themselves in a short period of time.

(Rev. 21:6) "...I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son."

And though the world be dark, and there is much unrest in the nations of the world; trouble shall increase on every hand.....know that Jesus is getting ready to return for His bride!

(Lu. 21:28) "And when, these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads: for your redemption draweth nigh."

In the wind and in the rain, I Am! In the heat of battle, I Am! In much troubling, sorrow and anguish of soul, I Am! In the storm and in the fiery trials, I Am! In the darkness and in the loneliness, I Am! In your grief and in your heartache, I Am! I am with you through all these things. I walk with you through the valleys, and through the deserts, and through the dark nights, and through the tunnels, over the mountains, and around the corners.

I walk with you through the twists and turns and over rocky places and through the briers and through the thorns. I take your hand and lead you through the raging waters and over steep and rocky cliffs. I have you by the hand. I lead you in all the places you walk.

I carry you when you grow weary. I strengthen you when you grow weak. I provide shelter when you grow faint, and rest when you feel you can go no farther. I am with you through all things.

I am bigger than those things you face. I am greater than your darkest fears and I am taller than your highest mountains. I am mightier than your greatest enemy, and more powerful than the strongest storm that threatens to drag you beneath its towering waves.

I am your strength, your peace, your joy, your hope and your confidence. I am your comforter, your healer, your helper, your counselor, your Father, and your friend.

Take your eyes off those things around you and gaze upon me. Let your eyes fall upon my face and drink deep of my majesty and glory. Fill up and be drunk with my beauty and splendor.

My love for you is a vast ocean and my compassion a great sea. Lose yourself in me and watch those troubles fade and diminish in the light of my glory. I have surrounded you with my great love and mercy. My strong and powerful arms have swept you up in my tight embrace.

Into the folds of my robe I have drawn you. Against my breast, next to my heart, I have cradled you and smothered you with kisses. You are my child and I am your Father. From the beginning I have loved you with a never-ending love. None shall harm you.

Take courage, my child, my hand is mighty upon you. Though, at the moment, you see not with your eyes, my promises to you, know that these things will pass and my promises will come. I will lift you above the swell of the waves and set your feet high upon the mountain.

Your enemy will look and see the great and wonderful things I have set before you. Because you are mine and you have made me your trust that evil one will watch helplessly as I dandle you on my knee and carry you upon my shoulder. My joy will swell within you and you will break forth with laughter and singing.

Like the dew of the morning when the sun rises, breaks over the mountain peaks and shines forth with radiant glory, your pain and your sorrow will fade away in a vapor and be remembered no more.
