Five-Fold Today - Kairos ~ In the Fulness of Time - Accepted in the Beloved - Giftedness - The Wealthy Place - What is Unconfessed - Called to be Exclusively HIS! - Warning From God - Follow Me Wholeheartedly - Come Into the Holy of Holies

August 31, 2000

By Gloria Shepherd

This morning, the Lord was speaking to me about the fullness of time - Kairos. For it is not until the fullness of time takes place, will He move in certain areas, over countries, over places. We are just the instruments and vessels He uses for this work.

I felt like the Lord was speaking this to me the fullness of time has to be reached before things are moved spiritually and where we will be able to go forth in this fullness to accomplish what He wants done. He is overseeing the whole thing. Without Him, we are just empty shells. We cannot go forth in the power of His Spirit, until He says, go and do it - otherwise it is the "flesh" moving before the Spirit.

We have to understand this fullness of time and how He is going to move us to do certain things if we are fully given over to the Spirit - THEN we will know when it is time to move.

This has taken me a bit of time to fully comprehend the greatness of this called timing in Him, the times and the seasons, and when He speaks to move. I just felt His Spirit telling me to warn the people that these times we have just moved into are going to be harder to discern. They will require precise movements in the Spirit, because of the intensity of this battle we are moving into now.

We will need to know the exact timing of His movements in these things that we are to move in - in the days to come. Many, many, many false prophets have gone out now. He said this to me today: "It will require great discernment of spirits to see in these coming days."

I know everybody has been talking about this Kairos, but we must wait until we see it in every aspect of what He is speaking to us. I hear some saying that it is in our power to call down the kingdom when we will it.. That is not true.. WE can only call certain things forth or down, when He says to us, call it down, then it can be done.

Until that time it cannot be time for the "fullness of time" has not been reached yet. These things are in the hands of the Father, many things are in His hands, and cannot be done until He says okay, do it, then it can be done, and spoken forth into existence.

With the Elijah spirit that has now been birthed forth in so many, there is a tendency to want to leap out and just do, but this is dangerous and will cause many ramifications in the spirit realm, if we go before the Spirit says to go. To move ahead of the Spirit on things - which is the work of our flesh - is really to move against the Holy Spirit in His work upon the earth. Dangerous moves!

We must remember that God is the one moving this, that God is the one that is calling the shots. We cannot "know" anything -unless it is by the Spirit of God which worketh in us. Kairos - the fullness of time in which only He knows. HE sees the whole picture. Only He knows when that time is.

There is an attack that has started to be launched out against the people of God. This will come in a very similar manner to the attack against Elijah from Jezebel after the Mount Carmel victory. (1 King 19:2-3)

Many of God's people have passed through many spiritual battles covering all fronts and at this point, God has given us an assurance of His victory in our heart and spirit. Yet many of His people are still waiting for the physical manifestation of these promises.

As His people continue to press in to the promises of the Lord and as we prepare to map and claim the inheritance and promise of God by ACTS OF OBEDIENCE, it will be at these point in time that the attack will be launched.


This attack will come as thoughts patterns questioning our integrity or motives. The enemy would throw questions to us with the intention of causing us to focus on our areas of weakness. The enemy would even used words by our loved ones and twist it and add sarcastic meaning and colors to them with the intent of making us feel "unappreciated, unloved, unimportant."

The enemy wants to confuse the issue at hand. He is trying to jump ahead of the Holy Spirit after each of these spiritual victories and intends to steal the peace in our hearts and instead is trying to plant fear and discouragement by making us feel and think that "every act of obedience we have done was not of God, but was just the product of our own imagination."


The Lord is reminding us about what Jesus did when He was tempted in the wilderness. He used the Word of God to silence the voices of the enemy.

We are therefore to dig deep into our hearts and maybe even notes and journals and retrieve and keep handy every prophetic word and impression that we have received from the Lord and from others and further fortify these with the different Rhema promises from the Bible that the Lord has given to us to claim.

And like Jesus we are to use these as are our weapons of warfare and speak these words back to the enemy to silence him.


The Lord has seen all the battles that His people have been through in the past. Those were the seasons of breaking, molding, changing and growing.


Like the children of Israel, we have come out of our dessert and God has allowed us to stand and see our inheritance from a distance. It is within our reach and in this season He has already started to lead many to step forward in boldness to start claiming their inheritance.

Some have been called to give up old established ministries and move forward to plant and start new ministries by faith. Some have been called to move and transfer and effect changes in many areas which includes work and to some even the actual changing of residences.

Some have been called to exercise physical prophetic actions similar to what the prophets in the Old Testament were led to do. Jeremiah was asked to buy land at the very time when the people are about to be led away into captivity (Jeremiah 32:7).

Many of these actions may even look foolish and impractical outwardly, but have great spiritual significance and meaning. All of these are part of God's positioning us to enter and claim the inheritance that He has prepared for us.

Every one of these actions and decisions takes a lot of spiritual exercising of faith and trust in the Lord. And Like Elijah after Mount Carmel, this is where we are most vulnerable.


The Lord is saying to those who are finding themselves facing these attacks to stand firm in Him.


And His recompense and reward is with Him being readied to honour His obedient children. He is preparing a banqueting table in the presence of our enemies. And His anointing oil is ready to be poured down and we will soon begin to see our cups overflow.

Surely the goodness and love of the Lord will follow us all the remaining days of our lives and we will be dwelling in the Presence of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:5-6)

He is delighted with the obedience of His people. He will not allow any of His faithful children to lose or to miss their inheritance and their blessings. He will make sure that all that He has promised to us will be fulfilled.


"Father, we thank You for your word to us this day. And we stand in these promises because we know that they will never fail. Cover Your people with a blanket called "Perfect Love" today and hide us from the attacks of the enemy. Amen!"


Paul Weigel

When we speak highly and positively of a person, we release them to live up to and sometimes beyond what they are capable of. We have enormous power to create with our words. Have you ever been around people who love and think the best of you? Isn't it freeing and wonderful!! Even our personality is affected by people and their view of us. It is amazing how we will act a certain way with certain people and another way with others. Any hurt which is resident in our heart makes us vulnerable to the negative talk or judgements of others. There are people we just can't do our best around. We always seem to fumble, stumble, and crumble just when we want to do our best. When we perform under our ability, it may be a sign that we need some inner healing of hurts we have received previously. We can overcome the work of the flesh in others by the power of the Spirit. If you are going to build a team, then build it with your words of sincere faith and confidence in its members, and they will perform up to and beyond your expectations.

Secondly, I learned that when individuals give up their personal goals for the welfare of the group, God comes and adds an "increase" to their efforts. In sports, when a team performs above the sum of their parts, they call it "chemistry". Scientists call it synergy. The Bible calls it unity. There are two kinds of unity described by Paul in Ephesians 1. There is unity of the faith, and unity of the Spirit. Unity of the faith means that we agree on some basic tenants. Unity of the Spirit can only occur when we set aside our personal (fleshy) purposes, for the purposes of the group. This selflessness is both humility which begets grace, and unity which begets blessing. Is there any wonder when we work together in this way that we see our individual efforts excel as well as the purposes of the group achieved? Working together in this selfless way is the answer for the needs and the objectives of the church, our communities, and our homes. It was in community and unity that the early church was able to have a huge impact on the world.

Some of this material is part of a seminar available for church and conference groups called: "Developing and Nurturing Your Giftedness".

The Wealthy Place

John Kempf

This is an awesome hour for the church--the universal church. This is the hour for the church to take hold, to fully appropriate everything rightfully associated with salvation. What does that mean? In the Old Testament, the word for salvation is "yesa". The basic meaning of yesa is "to bring into a spacious environment." Thus, salvation includes the idea of freedom from limitations! Therefore, salvation brings deliverance from all factors which constrain and confine! Factors that restrict the church include disease (Isaiah 38:9), trouble (Jeremiah 30:7), and all other enemies (Psalm 44:7).

Yes, there may be times when we encounter fire and water, referring to times of difficulty, trials, tribulations, all types of hardship. However, God is bringing us through the fire and through the water into the wealthy place (Psalm 66:12). The "wealthy place" is a place of relief from the restrictive, inhibiting, constraining, and confining encumbrances that hinder the church! Therefore, God is brining the church into a broad place of hyper-abundance and refreshment--a place saturated with every provision that the church needs (Psalm 66:12, Amplified Bible).

I declare today that the "wealthy place" is where those that fear the LORD are blessed! Those living in the wealthy place are governed by reverential fear of God that produces a mighty spiritual seed that is mighty upon earth, their generations shall be blessed.

Those abiding in "the wealthy place" have wealth and riches in their house: and their righteousness endures for ever. Light is upon those that God has brought into "wealthy place", and their light shines in the darkness:. Those in the wealthy place are gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. They show favor and lend: will guide their affairs with discretion.

Furthermore, those in the wealthy place shall not be moved for ever: they shall be in everlasting remembrance. Those saturated in the wealthy place shall not be afraid of evil tidings: their heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. The heart of those in the wealthy place is established, they shall not be afraid. Those in the wealthy place disperse their resources to the needy, they give to the poor. The righteousness of those in the wealthy place endure for ever and their horn shall be exalted with honor (Psalm 112:1-9).

Now, keep in mind that the word salvation that I referenced to in this email is based on the Old Testament word for salvation! How much more shall those walking in the New Testament Covenant with Jesus live in and experience the wealthy place! After all, scripture asks, "...If God...spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? (Romans 8:31-32. All emphasis mine).

church, it is the will of God for you to enter and live in "The Wealthy Place." Jesus said, "I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture [the wealthy place]" (John 10:9). Jesus is the doorway through which we enter the wealthy place! What are you waiting for?

Blessing upon you as you enter---"The wealthy place."

What is Unconfessed

Hi, SheepTrax!

A casual remark by a new friend of mine helped me to better understand what it means to walk in the sweet freedom of Christ. My friend runs an AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) meeting. In a casual group conversation, someone asked him why sober people fall off the wagon and start drinking again. He replied, "What does a drunk in every time is his deepest, darkest secret."

He went on to explain that most people who drink excessively have pain in their lives they simply cannot make go away. There is something unconfessed that has free reign to torment their soul deep down where no one else can see. It is that place of secret pain unless it is dealt with - that will eventually undo someone's sobriety.

There is something about confession that is cleansing to the soul. The Roman Catholic church has recognized this truth for centuries and developed the concept of the confessional box where a penitent can get alone with someone else and confess their darkest secrets and sins. While I take staunch exception to most RC practices and un- biblical doctrines, the confessional has been a place of healing and sanctuary for many tormented, weary souls; (regrettably, blackmail, too). With confession and acknowledgment of wrongdoing comes the road to sweet restoration.

Even the godless acknowledge the universality of human guilt. Freud, also known as Sick Sigmund, recognized that guilt was a powerful motivation in the human psyche. Instead of encouraging the afflicted to take personal responsibility for their actions, humanists have tried to help rationalize guilt by finding someone else to blame. It was your mothers' fault, or improper toilet training, or your wounded inner child, excuse, excuse, ad nausium. All sin is ultimately against God and it is with God Himself that you must first and foremost be reconciled with if you are to ever find peace.

In Psalm 32:3-5, King David acknowledged that his unconfessed sin kept him in a state of torment. Unrelenting guilt and inner accusation will eventually unbalance even the stablest of personalities. David, who once worshipped God on the harp to soothe the troubled mind of a mad king, was now himself King and nearing a state of madness because he refused to acknowledge his hidden, unconfessed sins, in his case adultery and murder.

After confession of his moral crimes, he penned, "When I kept silent, my bones grew old through my groaning all the day long. For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, `I will confess my transgressions to the LORD,' and You forgave the iniquity of my sin."

Healing often comes with confession. James 5:16 "Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed." Be wise and use discretion in choosing whom to share your heart with! Not everyone who takes the name of Christ is trustworthy or mature enough to respect your privacy. Still, God makes transparency between his people a prerequisite for finding restoration of our souls.

While we need others to confess our failures to, it is finally God Himself that we need to confess to. Confession is agreeing with God says says about you is true without making any excuses. Once this is accomplished, He promises, in 1 John 1:9, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." Forgiveness and cleansing are His grace response to "lead us beside still waters, and restore our soul."

It is your deepest, darkest secret that will finally poison your life. Bare your soul before God confessing your unconfessed sins and their ugliness. Tell Him you need His healing touch. Agree with Psalms 41:4, "I said, `LORD, be merciful to me; Heal my soul, for I have sinned against You.'"

Be healed in Jesus' name.

Called to be Exclusively HIS!



"I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His Inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe." (Eph 1:18-19).


Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Lord has sent forth in the Spirit, a refreshing wind... a wind which carries a Divine Call to "Holy Consecration unto Him"... a consecration unto Him, even unto the death, for this is the meaning of holiness (hagios) unto the Lord. It is an absolute commitment ... it is a turning completely over to the use of the Deity of our bodies/souls/spirits for His Divine Purposes. It is a Holy Possession by God of all that we are, and can do. A Holy-Separation which will cause more division... more conflict in the Body, by those who are unwilling to pay the price... and persecution of those who ARE willing to pay the price, for the "unwilling ones" will need to 'prove' their position is 'righteous' and justified. "... whoever wants to save his life, will lose it.... " Many will choose to 'save their lives'... rather than be His disciples. [read all of Matt 16:24-28 and Luke 14:25-35 asking the Holy Spirit to lead you into all this Truth]

None of this is new... this has been the temporal effect of consecration from times eternal.

We, as Christians, embrace the concept of being 'separated unto God' for His Divine Purposes... but the "reality" of it is not always accepted.... for it means a turning away from all things which are not in accord with His Divine Purposes, and this causes great change in the interpersonal dynamics of our lives. "whoever wants to save his life.. will lose it, BUT whoever loses his life, for Me will find it!" [Matt 16:25]

The soul being drawn into a complete separation unto God, no longer has the same interests, no longer enjoys the same things... as this Extravagant, Courageous, Passion for God consumes all things in his/her life that is not OF God... and this causes a great disturbance in 'normal life'.... the things of earth are growing strangely dim.. in the LIGHT of His Mercy and Grace!

May we begin to prepare ourselves ... and to remember Jesus taught us that this "Cost of Discipleship" could be compared to a king preparing to go to war. "Will he not first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand men? If he is not able, he will send a delegation while the other is still a long way off and will ask for terms of 'peace'." . . . . "In the same way, any of you, who does not give up everything... he cannot be my disciple." [Luke 14:31-33] Be prepared for war, dear saints, as you respond to this Call to Consecration. May God give you each the courage and strength to CHOOSE JESUS over all other calls on your life! (and mine)

Hadewijch of Antwerp, one of my Christian mentors, left behind this testimony of consecration unto God....

"The soul who is most untouched is the most like to God. Keep yourself untouched by all men in heaven and on earth, until the day when God is lifted up above the earth and draws you and all things to Himself. (John 12:32). Some say that He meant this, upon the Cross on which He was lifted up. But when God and the blessed soul are united, He, together with the blessed soul, will be exalted from the earth in all beauty.

For when the soul has nothing else but God, and when it retains no will but lives exclusively according to His Will alone; and when the soul is brought to nought and with God's Will, wills all that He Wills, and is engulfed in Him, and is brought to nought -- THEN HE is exalted above the earth!! THEN HE draws all things to Him.. and so, the soul becomes with Him, all that He Himself is.

The souls engulfed in God, who are thus lost in Him are illuminated on one side by the Light of Love, as the moon receives light from the sun. The simple knowledge then received by them in this New Light, from which they come and in which they dwell -- this simple light then catches their darker half, so that the two halves of the soul become one and then there is "full light".

If you had demanded this light to choose your Beloved, you would be free. For these souls are united and clothed with the same Light with which God clothes Himself. (Ps.103:2)"


When that soul has nothing else but God.....

Oh how these words to our modern ears must be "re-defined" to fit "our" Christianity! We have changed the meaning of discipleship... taken the Lord's word and terms of discipleship and diluted the cost ... saying by our actions, "We know Lord, that You are a Good God, and You mean for us to have You and "this."

No... when the soul has NOTHING BUT GOD.... then we have pressed into the Life of Christ. He is to be our ALL in ALL.... all other things... all other calls upon our lives, are to be subservient to "This Claim" on our Lives. We are not our own, we have been bought with a PRICE.. and we are bondslaves of the Lord Jesus Christ. We have prayed and prayed for God's Kingdom to come.. and HE is coming now, and declaring His Right to Rule and Reign in the Kingdom in our hearts!

Many will compromise on this, and so be it. There have always been those who turned away from the "hard words" of Jesus... it is part of the sifting and shaking process, and only a remnant are willing to be "disciples".. only a remnant are called to be Disciples, and the response to the Call manifests this truth. Not all will be willing.. Many are called, but few are chosen ... for the cost is great, to become a disciple... His "learners".

This is a separating message... a winnowing out message, for the cost of Discipleship has always remained high... and yet, there are those reading this message today, whose hearts and souls have said "YES LORD... I have counted the cost, and I want to be Your Disciple!" Hallelujah! I will lose my life for You Lord! Sacrificial LOVE for God is unstoppable... Love carries these onto the Plans and Purposes of God in their lives.

Jesus told us to make this decision with our eyes wide open.. fully knowing the price ... "Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it? For if he lays the foundation, and is not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule him, saying, 'this fellow began to build and was not able to finish' [Luke 14:28-30]

We respond to this Divine Call to Consecration with a "knowingness" that it will cost us EVERYTHING. Are we willing to lose it all, that we might gain His Life? There is no compromise that will be allowed... for there is a great cloud of witnesses who went before us on this path to Union with God, who ALL paid the price. The Price has remained the same through all the centuries of the Church.. and yet there have always been those men/women.. the Called and the Chosen... the Saints and the Faithful.. who sat down and counted the cost and knew the war that would ensue... yet they said "YES LORD" anyway; with passionate abandonment, choosing THAT Life in exchange for this life.

We know many of their names... and the record of God's Manifestation in and through their lives remain... but we don't know the price in terms of personal relationships that it cost them... but we know from the terms, that it cost them everything too.

May all those Called and Chosen Ones be encouraged in their most HOLY faith... their most "separated unto God for His Purposes" faith, to press on and finish the course, the race set before them.

You are called to be Exclusively His!

In Love's service to His Bride,

Prophetic word through
Frank Sandford

Speak to My people. I have seen all their deeds, I have witnessed the evil in their hearts, and I have grown weary of this defiant sin. My people are to be a holy people, set apart, and consecrated by My blood to Me.

Search your heart, search your motivations, search deep within. It is time to lay the axe to all that is not of Me. It is time My people be a holy people. It is a time to march out to spiritual warfare clothed in My holiness and My armour.

It is time to stand for Godly principles and to defy those who preach and practice evil. It is time to let the world see how I bless a holy people.

It is time to turn away from the sins of the fathers. It is time to come to Me in full repentance and to be forgiven and set free.

I am shining the spotlight of holiness into your life. As the light touches something evil in you, bring it to My cross be cleansed and forgiven by My blood.

The more you bring to Me, the more I will show you. The more I show you of your sin, the more you repent and I forgive, the closer we (you and I) will become and the holier your relationships with people will be.

Do not think, "This is my secret sin and not even God knows, and if He does know it is not really that big a deal." MY PEOPLE, SIN IS SIN. I know all about you and you have no secrets from Me.

I have put My people into relationships so that they might help each other deal with sin in their lives. Seek out trustworthy servants of Mine in whom you can confide and who will help you to bring your sin to My cross to be nailed and left there forever.

My people, holiness is no longer an option; IT IS A MUST. I require A holy people to stand for Me in these evil days.

Follow Me Wholeheartedly

David Bingham

My people, I see that you are tired. You have been climbing the hill of misunderstanding and opposition a long time, While some in your churches have accepted my word, others have been hardened and simply do not want more of me.

There is coming a parting of the ways. I am calling out a people from among my people that have a Joshua and Caleb spirit, that believe my word and want to take the land I have promised them.

Will you be in my end time army ? Will you follow me and put my interests first ? You will be misunderstood by many but you will have the anointing of my power upon you.

I am raising up generals for my army, powerful ministries in the body to equip my army for the great battle for the souls of men. My prophets will be my trumpet to call together my people. Those who follow me whole- heartedly will know total victory.

3. Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? Ps. 24

15. For this is what the high and lofty One says-- he who lives forever, whose name is holy: "I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. Is. 57

2. A tabernacle was set up. In its first room were the lampstand, the table and the consecrated bread; this was called the Holy Place. 3. Behind the second curtain was a room called the Most Holy Place, Heb. 9

19. Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20. by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21. and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22. let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Heb. 10

"Come into the Holy of Holies"

"Come, Come into my sanctuary. Come past the place of the shewbread, and come past the curtain to find Me. Enter into this place with a clean heart and holy hands. I AM here to hear your pleas and to listen to you. This is where I abide and live. This is where you will find Me. "

(The Lord showed me someone who was shooting an arrow, and as I watched the bow being bent back, it released an arrow that was filled with flames. The flaming arrow struck a book, and this book opened up. It was filled with fire and flames. The Lord then said: "This is my Holy Book.")

"My word speaks about Me and shows the people who I AM. It describes the many things and the many people who have beheld my glory. I gave my servant Moses, the ten commandments and for my law. My word came in the form of my Son, for He embodied the word and truth. But I say that some have misused my word and have not handled it correctly. Those who know Me know about Me in my word. "

"Come to the altar and hear Me as my Spirit speaks. Come to that place and kneel beside Me. I AM not far off as many would think that I AM. I dwell with those who are meek and humble of heart. Hear the music that is played within my sanctuary, and feel my presence. "

(I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne and He bent down as if to get something. He was as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. He bent down to get a cloth and with this, He took it and spead it upon His lap. He set this cloth there and then I saw many jewels and brocades, and types of armor that was very beautiful.)

Then He said this:

"These things are for my warriors and for those who have come before Me in this hour." Take them for you will need them in this hour. My warriors will fight for Me and will be dressed in my robes of righteousness. Be dressed in my royal robes, I would say. Now go, go to your individual assignments and do what you must do. It is time for my sons and daughters to come into maturity. "
