Deeper Intimacy

James Donovan

I am calling you to a deeper intimacy with Me. It is time for My people to press into Me with a new heart, like David. I inhabit the praises of My people. Come in to My presence with a contrite heart. Come and celebrate, dance and rejoice before Me. I am bringing My people to a place above the cares of the world. I am giving freedom and liberty as you yield to My spirit.

The world may say you are crazy or undignified. But as you celebrate, lifting hands up to Me, you will receive freedom liberty and newness of life in Me. As you dance before Me the cares of the world will fall off.

This is the day to rejoice in Me says the Lord. Worship Me with a whole heart. I am setting the captives free, I am bringing healing. Come and shout, come and laugh as your burdens fall off. People may say, "what a fool." But I am healing My people and restoring life and longevity. I am renewing your heart as you yield to Me in worship and praise with a whole heart. Containers of My love will spring up within you as a well of refreshing and healing for the Nations.

So be willing to celebrate and worship Me, with songs and praise. Lift up Holy hands, surrendering all to Me. Set your feet to dancing. Shout and laugh, yielding to My Spirit. Come in humility before Me with a whole heart. You shall find newness of life and a heart for Me. In the deep water is refreshing. In My river you shall find refreshing too. Do not fear to be called a fool as you come deeper into intimacy with Me. Cast off the cares, the sickness and the bondages. Then I will use you mightily for Me. You shall swim in My deep water in the freedom and liberty of My Spirit.

This Place of Intimacy

Eudora Harrington

Radical Change is coming unto you. Expect it, tarry for it like they did in the upper room. I am coming with fire to burn out the stubble, hay, and the waste. I am coming for the thirsty, the hungry, those crying out for change. Trust Me in these changes, for I know what is best for you. I am building more faith in you, increasing your joy, allowing you to experience real peace. I am allowing you to know My heart and experience a greater measure of My love.

We will walk together on this intimate journey to a place called submission, a place called humility, a place called pain and brokenness, a place called love and joy, a place called repentance, a place called peace. Let Me embrace you My love.

I will reveal Myself to you in this place. It is where your mind will be renewed, your thoughts will change about Me and others. You will see a change in your life and others will start to treat you differently. My Glory will shine bright upon you, My anointing will destroy the yoke, demons will be cast out. My word shall stand tall within you. My discernment shall walk with you, and My spirit shall lead you. You will know My voice clearly. You will know My sound, My touch. You will know Me as God in every situation you have; there will be no other God before Me in this place.

Come and feel My heart beat, feel the warmth of My love, My embrace, in this place. Come closer, My love, and feel My love for you. Feel My passion, feel My strength, experience My peace. This touch of love will change you forever. It will change your very being. Come closer. I want you to feel Me breathing upon you, to taste of My sweat, to feel the heat

The Chastening Of America

David Wilkerson

For the last five years, I have been warning of an impending financial disaster in America. Today, few will listen, and even devout Christians do not want to hear what they consider negative prophecies.

I've heard ministers preach that America is headed only for blessings, with no judgment. They say "Where is the financial breakdown the doomsayers speak of? It will never happen here." They point to a believing President, to a clean, moral White House, and to a leadership doing its best to repeal abortion legislation.

Let me tell you what I believe is the reason God has withheld his chastening of America up to now. We find the clue in Genesis 18, where God was posed to rain fire on Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham negotiated with the lord face to face, until a promise was given that judgment would be spared if but ten righteous people could be found "therein." This implies that God will save Sodom from ruin if only ten seekers, ten intercessors, could be found in that city. Ten who shared God's grief over the wickedness of that society, its blatant homosexuality and violence.

I believe America has been given a temporary reprieve, because the lord has found an interceding righteous remnant who are crying out for mercy. Those in this remnant are repentant and they grieve with God over our national and personal sins. In Ezekiel 22, God looked for one godly man to "stand in the gap before me for the land, that I SHOULD NOT DESTROY IT, but I found none" (v.30). Think about it: Israel could have been spared destruction had the Lord found a single man to stand in his presence and intercede for the land. But there comes a time when the cup of iniquity overflows, and God will no longer withhold his chastening, no matter how many have prayed. Then we hear God say, "Thy bruise is incurable and thy wound is grievous" (Jeremiah 30:12). "Though moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be toward this people" (Jeremiah 15:1).

On June 2, 2003, in major cities across the U.S., hundreds of thousands of gays paraded in an event called Gay Pride. Canada has just legalized gay marriages. Our own Supreme Court has just legitimized homosexuality. And America will soon legalize gay marriages also. We have outdone Sodom. There is no record of Sodom aborting babies. And Sodom had no Bible, no churches, no gospel. Yet we have sinned and outlawed the very name of God, in the face of loving warnings and a gospel of mercy and grace.

A few years ago, I was practically screaming out warnings about a collapse of the Internet bubble. Now I am crying out a warning about the real estate bubble. Soon, America will face a fearful collapse in real estate, as bad or worse than the real estate collapse in Japan ten years ago.

I take back none of my warnings. The storm is still on the horizon. Right now it is being withheld for a season, to see what is in the heart of a professing Christian President, and in hope that the goodness and patience of God lead us to repentance.

Such preaching is costly to our ministry. Some turn us off, while others scoff. Some stop supporting our charitable outreaches. But those who know the Word of God, who pray, who grieve over the condition of our land and our churches - they believe and understand.

A closing word: Thanks to those who stay with us, who continue to pray for us and support us with missions gifts - to feed, clothe and house the needy, and to evangelize multitudes around the world. Many thanks.

His bondservant,

Who Shall Be Able To Stand?

Minister Virginia M. Posey

The Church needs to be the Church as God ordained it to be. He commanded us to love one another as He has loved us and that by this all men know that we are His disciples. St. John 13:34-35

We have been admonished to assemble ourselves together, they did that in the upper room. However, the problem is that we the Church have forgotten the reason why we come together. It is not for a religious program and order of service. It is not to shout and dance then go home and say we had a good time. It is not to show out with a new wardrobe.

It is not to show off the "anointing" as some often do in a competitive manner to be the best psalmist, or whatever the gift is God has bestowed. In fact, if we go into the sanctuary and come out the same way as we went in, there was no anointing! The anointing destroys yokes, changing people, recharges us to release healing to a lost and dying world. We need to come together for a fresh anointing to move through us, to worship corporately in love that we can make a difference in the world.

Unfortunately, we have forgotten why we do what we do and the world sees it. We go in the sanctuary and then out into the world no better than the sinner. Hypocrites then? I am speaking for the Body of Christ as a whole. I love to minister to anyone that God places in my path and am blessed everytime I can be of help to someone who has a need.

When God told me to go into His house of rebellious people I wanted to hit the streets from where He brought me. God has shown me a great need within the household of faith. Many are hurting and in need of deliverance, but have not been able to breakthrough to wholeness for the traditions of man and religious programs.

During a fast and prayer hiatus, I saw something in the spirit that grieved the Holy Spirit. From on the floor at the alter of the sanctuary I looked down the aisle and my eyes fixed on the double doors of the entry. The doors were open but the souls I was praying for could not enter in. There were two very large hands blocking the entrance. I then heard the spirit of the Lord say to me this:

The souls are lined up and ready to come into my house of prayer to be in my presence that they might be blessed, but I cannot allow them to enter.

I am blocking the way in for there is much cleaning that needs to be done in my house first. My people have forgotten why they come into my House. My people have lost their first love and have not love for one another. Therefore I cannot allow these babes to come yet for My people will surely drive them away with bitterness in their hearts.

Judgment must start in the Household of Faith and surely it has begun. This judgment is one last change to surrender to God and His word in a love relationship that He will be glorified. And just as surely as the harvest is ripe, it shall be reaped.

And just as surely as the 120 in the upper room heard a sound from heaven as a rushing mighty wind, these shall come again a sound from heaven. It will move from within the household of faith out into the hedges and highways and they will be compelled to come for the signs and wonders that are about to take place.

God is putting His divine order back into position for man has bungled it long enough. He is putting it in marriages where husbands and wives will be beacons of light not only to their children but to all they come into contact with, on and off the job. He is putting His order even in single lives that the life would be lived to the fullest for His glory.

And yes, He is putting His order even in the sanctuary where the Holy Spirit will be in control.

No longer will there be church as usual. Everything we know to be is changing by God's divine Hand. It is a shaking going on and all that are not standing upon the solid rock shall not stand.

Who shall be able to stand?
Shalom & Agape,

Minister Virginia M. Posey

Visualize the Wave

Mary Lloyd

I speak to My discouraged ones who have heard My weeping; to those who look at the changing spiritual climate and feel only My pain.

My loved ones, My little ones, your eyes are filled with the sight of suffering; your heart weeps for the great need of the people to receive Me into them, and be changed.

You read the words of the times and shake your head: "How will this be?" You fear that staying so long among the needy - in body, in mind, in spirit - that the great wave of My power and blessing will come sweeping in, and that you and they will be caught unawares and swept aside.

You have wondered, "Do I really know my God?" Please know that you do, and that I think so highly of you: value yourself because your God values you!

You are the ones who have chosen ignominy over fame, who have chosen to work quietly among the spiritually and materially poor of the world.

In this environment you see few signs of My spectacular power; few displays of My greatness in the multitude of need. You are weary in hope as you scan the faces for signs of love towards Me, for signs of little sparks of love igniting into the passion for Me that you feel. I love it that you feel that way!

I want to comfort you, for you have felt yourself as it were sliding backwards; you have felt as though the flow that you are in, in Spirit, is contrary to what you see around you when you read the words of My servants the prophets. It is to you as though the great wave of outpouring, as though the whole mighty flow is going against you: in motion, in speed, in power, in direction. You feel as though the vision has passed you by.

Fear not! Hold on to what I have told you and what I have taught you. Have I not said ye are blessed of My Father in giving what you give? And inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, that ye have done it unto Me? Have I not promised you that My strength is made perfect in weakness? And that the one who humbles himself will be exalted?

When you hear the cries of pain from the least able, the least blessed, the least spiritual, the least loved - on the highways and byways of your ministerial environment - it is My cry of pain that you hear. Yes, you have rightly heard My weeping, My dissatisfaction with the painful circumstances of want and need and distress and misery. And you have rightly responded with My love.


I want you to catch this vision. I want you to catch hold of this motion deep down in your spirit and know where it is I AM taking you.

Visualize the wave. It is a great wave of the Spirit, which you have not yet seen. Dare to! Dare to see it beginning to rise up out of the swell of My will. What do you see? What do you notice as the great pull of water rises up INSIDE the wave? Yes! It is climbing upwards and backwards, it is going against gravity: seeming to pull backwards, not forwards; seeming to suck and pull against the mighty flow as it rises high up in the air.

See how in this I am gathering all this power; I am sucking and pulling all My people together in one great volume of motion. You have rightly sensed in your spirit you are being sucked upwards and backwards, against the flow. You have been humbled among the humble and this is your glorious place. You have sensed My timing, My rhythm, My motion!

Listen for the pause; listen for the approaching silence, the fleeting moment before the great tidal wave of My love and My power and My blessing comes crashing down. You are part of it! I took you low to raise you up high! I took you backwards to throw you forwards! You are part of My thunder to come, and I am raising you up to throw you forwards in great power in this coming day.

In that day - Oh Glory! - in that day I have promised is coming you will catch your breath! Hold on to the little ones and bring them with you! Hold on to them with your hands for they will receive from Me all I have promised and you will see it! Before your eyes they will be changed forever and your tears will be tears of joy. Because you share my heart, because you heard My pain,

And because we are one

in the same desire.


Waiting Is Not Easy

Ras Robinson

It takes patience to wait. And you have waited so long for the promises that it seems as if they will never come. But your patience will soon be rewarded openly. I say unto you trust in me and do well while there is yet time. Put you faith in what you have clearly heard from me and my word. I never disagree with my word. Go back now and search your heart for those things I have by your faith revealed and spoken to you as your own promise. Those are the things I have promised and you can count on them coming to pass. The vision is real because if it is indeed my vision then nothing can stop it. Wait for it. I will draw people to the vision. These will be those who shall participate with you in the harvest. Your endurance has been tested. And it will be tested even more. Do not lose faith in your promised reward. Waiting is not easy.

Lament. 3:25 The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him.

Seven Ways Will Defeat Him In the End

Stephen Hanson

1PE 5:8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. [9] Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings

(I have noticed that the enemy is attempting to come into our lives in many ways. He is very subtle and he comes when we least expect him to. He may attempt to cause havoc in our families. He may come when we are at our weakest point. We may know these things intellectually, but to know them spiritually and to be tuned-in to his ways and to be sensitive to how he works will help us to be victorious in Christ. )

"I call to my people--I call to my people from the outer reaches of my kingdom. I call to them on the wings of the wind. I call to them from my holy steed. I call to you to beware. For the enemy waits in ambush.

(I saw the enemy, our ancient foe. He was squatting down on the outskirts of the world. In a crouching position he was waiting. He held a spear as if to strike. )

"The enemy has been loosed and he is about to strike the land. He is attempting to strike down many who are serving Me now. I tell you that he is spreading forth his lies. I tell you not to be ignorant of his devices. For he waits for you to slip and fall. The enemy will come in when you least expect him to. He is a trickster and he will deceive you into thinking that many things are alright. He is much closer to accomplishing his task than many of you might think. The end of all things is close at hand; and because of this, he is pulling out all of the stops. So, how can he be defeated?

These are the ways:

  1. Stand your ground
  2. Take all of your thoughts captive in Me.
  3. Use the sword of the spirit.
  4. Realize that he is a liar.
  5. Know what his weapons are.
  6. Know who is greater.
  7. Be fitted with my armor.

"There are seven recourses. Six is the number of man, and six are his numbers. Seven ways will defeat him in the end. If you will do all these things then he will not be waiting for you in ambush. Then he will surely flee and hide. He will know that he is defeated. But I tell you that it takes a concerted effort. Without a daily habit of doing these things, he will not be defeated. "

Stephen Hanson

Revival: A Divine Visitation

A.W. Tozer

And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. -1 Corinthians 3:1

I believe that it might be well for us if we just stopped all of our business and got quiet and worshiped God and waited on Him. It doesn't make me popular when I remind you that we are a carnal bunch, but it is true, nevertheless, that the body of Christians is carnal. The Lord's people ought to be a sanctified, pure, clean people, but we are a carnal crowd. We are carnal in our attitudes, in our tastes and carnal in many things. Our young people often are not reverent in our Christian services. We have so degraded our religious tastes that our Christian service is largely exhibitionism. We desperately need a divine visitation-for our situation will never be cured by sermons! It will never be cured until the Church of Christ has suddenly been confronted with what one man called the mysterium tremendium-the fearful mystery that is God, the fearful majesty that is God. This is what the Holy Spirit does. He brings the wonderful mystery that is God to us, and presents Him to the human spirit. The Counselor, 66-67.

"Oh Lord, deliver me from carnal attitudes, actions, and desires. Give me this morning a divine visitation to purify and cleanse me. Let me sense today the majesty and awesomeness of the 'mysterium tremendium' as I wait upon You. Amen."
