The Challenges Ahead

Prophecy – 2/21/2009

Bro. Bill

 

USAThe challenges ahead are great for this country (USA) and the means of the past will not work in the future. All things will become more difficult as time passes on. It will be futile to devise your plans to work around all your problems for they are all intertwined and knit together so when you move to correct one problem you create another.

Leave your plight to Me and trust that I have the ability to sustain those who call out to My name, even in this late hour. I will hear from heaven and will save all who call upon the Lord, for darkness grows upon the earth and time becomes a shallow pool. I will bring a refreshing wind upon your face and wipe away your tears in this hour of destiny. Give your life to me and trust that I Am and you will see the salvation of the Lord amidst the cloud of darkness and despair.

Oh troubled ones, come and rest your weary heads on My shoulder and I will give you rest. Am I not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who has been blessed by Me. Are you not a member of this covenant? Indeed your are so take solace in your plight and rejoice in Me for I am the Lord, God of all, all who call upon Me.

Your Father

Scripture ref.

 

Mat. 8:11 “I say to you that many will come from east and west, and recline {at the table} with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven;

Mat. 22:32 ‘I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB‘? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.”

Acts 3:25 “It is you who are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant which God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘AND IN YOUR SEED ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED.’

Heb. 8:6 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as He is also the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises.

 Heb. 12:24-25  and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than {the blood} of Abel. See to it that you do not refuse Him who is speaking. For if those did not escape when they refused him who warned {them} on earth, much less {will} we {escape} who turn away from Him who {warns} from heaven.



  • I Am Who He Says I Am

    II Peter 1:3-4 (The Message)

    “EVERYTHING that goes into a life of pleasing God has been miraculously GIVEN to you by getting to know, personally and intimately, the ONE who invited you to God!  The best invitation you ever received!  You have also been given absolutely terrific promises – your ticket to participation in the life of God after you turned your back on a world corrupted by lust.”

    chainsDid you read that?  Read it again.  Slowly.  Chew on it.  Your mind won’t grasp it, but your heart and spirit will sense the magnitude of it.  This scripture has been the source of much meditation for me over the past year.  It says to me that regardless of how long I have battled, struggled and wrestled with the same stronghold in my life, He has ALREADY given me EVERYTHING I need to overcome it and lead a life pleasing to Him.  I know, we’ve heard those words before and we tend to read them with a numbness without really HEARING it.  As I have meditated on this scripture, I began to realize that who I AM is the person that is FREE of that stronghold.  The false belief system in my mind was that because I have always been a certain way, or practiced certain behavior, or yielded to the same specific bait that the enemy brought across my path, that it was just a part of who I am.  But that’s a lie!  You see, who I am, and who you are, is the person that is created in God’s image.

    As I would find myself yielding over and over to the same stronghold, I would become angry with myself….but I would still yield.  I would feel like a monster and a horrible person….but I would still yield.  I would become sick at my stomach at my repeated behavior…..but I would still yield.  I would cry buckets of tears before God accepting once again His mercy and forgiveness…..but I would still yield.  I would say to God, “I don’t know how NOT to be this way!  As far back in my life as I can remember, I’ve been this way!  I don’t even know how to NOT do this!”

    That’s when He brought me to that scripture….and began to lovingly show me that the first step in being free of that stronghold was to realize….that it was not me.   He reached down into the deepest places of who I am, because only the One that created me knows where to touch, and He whispered, “You believe that you’re that person.  You believe the lie the enemy has told you.  But I don’t care how long you’ve practiced that stronghold, or how many times you’ve chosen it over me….I did not create you that way and you are not that person!”

    potter's handsSo, who am I?   And who better to show me who I am than the only One that truly knows?  Because He fashioned me.  He molded me.  He spoke forth plans for my life.  He put gifts inside of me.  He put laughter and joy inside of me.  He filled me with His peace that passes all of my own understanding.  And He said, “You are mine.”

    So as I have progressed in soaking my mind in the fact that the real me has nothing to do with the behavior I once yielded to….and this is definitely not an overnight process…..and as I continue looking into the mirror of His Word that tells me who I am, the stronghold gets further and further away.  And the picture of how I see myself becomes clearer each day.  And old things become new.  And weights that once weighed me down fall away.   And although the picture of the real me is only a glimpse right now, I am beginning to believe that it’s the truth.  Why?  Because He said so.  And He has never lied to me.  He has never left me.  He has never presented Himself as anything other than Who He is.  And He is trustworthy.  And He is faithful.  And He has loved me every moment.  And He has hurt for me everytime I believed the enemy’s lie.  And He has picked me up.  And He has dusted me off.   A million times.

    I love Him.  You are who He says you are.  Believe it.  Think on it.  Meditate on it.



  • Seasons in the Word Lead to Victories in the Spirit

    waveI have noticed that God gives us seasons where He leads us into studying His Word. During this season, we seem to have a greater desire to read the Word more than at other times. The Word seems to be more alive to us and the mysteries of God seem to jump off the page. Holy Spirit is illuminating new revelation to us as our faith is being built up in the truths of God.

    These Word seasons last for however long God has determined and then we begin to notice a transition in our walk. Often the change is first noticed during our prayer and Bible study time.

    During “dry” times, the scripture doesn’t seem to be flowing off the page as it was before and can seem difficult to get anything out of the Word at all; the Teacher is silent during the test. God’s silence is a good indicator that the waves now crashing a shore have changed from the Word season of growth and learning waves to spiritual waves and a season of trial and testing.

    Holy Spirit shifts our lives into spiritual seasons so we can walk out what He has been teaching us in the Word. Perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “A man with an experience is not at the mercy of a man with an argument.” A spiritual season is to give us experiential knowledge of God’s Word and the applied knowledge truly gives us true understanding of God. Our faith isn’t faith at all until it has been tested under fire. The military knows that a battle hardened soldier is much more effective than a soldier in basic training because they’ve been in battle after battle and have endured because of the training they have received.

    Jesus taught and demonstrated the Kingdom to His disciples before He commissioned them to go out and demonstrate it. Jesus repeated the process of Word seasons and spiritual wave seasons time and time again.

     In Luke 8:1, Jesus is going from one village to another proclaiming and preaching the kingdom of God with the twelve disciples following Him. In verse 10, the disciples are told that it has been granted for them to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God meaning that they would begin to understand the Word of God and the Spirit of God and how it must work together to demonstrate the Kingdom of God.  And in Luke 9:1, the disciples are commissioned with the power and authority of Jesus to go out with demonstration and proclaim the kingdom of God. So you see, the disciples had to go and get experiential knowledge for themselves.

    These Word seasons are to build us up in our faith so we can stand strong during the spiritual seasons. Years ago during the night I heard the Father say to me, “For I know the plans that I have for you, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah. 29:11). Then He said, “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should repent; has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (Num. 23:19)

    genesis manThe Lord repeated Jeremiah 29:11 and Numbers 23:19 all night long in this order. Twice in the night I got up out of bed, once to adjust the thermostat and once to go the bathroom and immediately afterwards, I went back to bed only to hear Him repeat the verses over and over again. This continued all night long, even as I was beginning to wake up and dozing in and out of sleep, I would hear Him cycle through these verses over and over again. The verses were waves and waves of the Word that came to me all night in order to build my faith for the spiritual season which lay ahead.

     Shortly after this wonderful night of soaking in the waves of God’s Word, I entered into the hardest and darkest spiritual battle of my Christian walk. As it got closer I could see it coming yet I couldn’t do anything to get out of the way…the spiritual season was upon me and what a spiritual test it would be!

    The company where I was working was bought out by another company in a merger that placed me under new management with the new owners. I could discern evil coming, but I couldn’t put a name on it, I just knew the spiritual atmosphere had changed and it had changed for the worse. I pressed into God like never before sensing the danger which was coming upon my life and I too wanted this cup to pass from me.

    I wasn’t alone in sensing the danger of the hour as other Christian co-workers agreed that there was an evil and demonic presence in our building which was thick, heavy and intimidating. I knew God had assigned me in the work place ministry and that I couldn’t be fired, layed-off or quit until He released me from my assignment no matter what was going to happen to me.  

     Months passed as the new management transferred me out of my position into another location farther away, making my daily commute two hours round trip thus removing me from where God has placed me to minister. Instead of complaining, I just used that extra commute time to listen to preaching tapes and to meditate on the Word. My pastor at the time, had no information of my work conditions but when he would pass me in the fellowship meetings he would say, “When you come out of this you will be promoted and much stronger.”

    The spiritual attacks got worse but I kept pressing into prayer, studying and petitioning God to teach me what He wanted me to learn through this experience. We’re ultimately tested in order to learn that God is able to bring us through anything the enemy can throw at us if we won’t give up, give in and quit.

    On Sunday, July 7, 2002, Holy Spirit gave me a verse, “His left hand [is] under my head, and His right hand doth embrace me.” (Songs 2:6) This was my rhema word, I read it over and over and meditated on it all week long.

    I knew in the Spirit that evil darkness in the earth and the demonic kingdom was trying everything in its power to take my life this week. On Thursday, July 11th while driving back from lunch, an out of control driver raced out of a parking lot headed right at the driver’s side door of my vehicle. There just happened to be a side street where I was able to take evasive actions and I wasn’t even hit. It was so miraculous, that I couldn’t even get mad at the kamikaze driver that was used as a pawn by the devil’s kingdom.

    That same night, I walked out the front door of my house and was praying to God and said, “I present my body to You as a living sacrifice and I trust You with my life, use my body for Your glory.” 

    The very next day, I was riding my motorcycle home after work, a car came rushing out of a side street right in front of me. The driver stopped in front of me as my motorcycle sped toward certain collision at over forty-five miles per hour. I had always heard everything slows down when in a death situation like this and it’s true. It just appears to slow down when in fact the human mind races with thoughts and the adrenal gland kicks in and pumps like crazy.

    cautionThe first thought that came to me was that this wasn’t God’s plan for my life because He had told me all night long that He didn’t bring calamity into my life and that He would give me a future and a hope. It didn’t take a “rocket scientist” to figure out a speeding motorcycle about to T-bone a car isn’t God’s plan for me. I said, “This isn’t God’s plan for me and I shall live and not die, I’m going over this car Lord!”

    As I pressed hard on the front and rear brake levers, my speed didn’t slow down due to the short closing distance to the vehicle. Then “bam” I heard a loud crash as the front wheel of my motorcycle impacted the vehicle and I was airborne flying high over the car in the center lane. I wasn’t wearing a helmet and I was thought I wished I had it on for the impending impact to come. I said, “Lord if I hit my head I’m dead.” All I could see was the concrete road and thinking how much this was going to hurt.

    Suddenly, I noticed that my forward direction traveling down the center lane was being changed. Some external force was moving me from the center lane over to the left lane even though I couldn’t feel anything touching me. I landed on my right shoulder and head in the middle of the far left lane. I tumbled over and over as I could hear the impact of my head on the concrete. Amazingly, I didn’t feel any pain as I thumped along the concrete. Truly His left hand [is] under my head and His right hand doth embrace me.

    After I stopped tumbling, I lay there a few seconds completing my injury inventory. I was awaiting the message of “horrendous pain” to be sent through my body notifying every member that we’re hurt really bad, but it didn’t come.

    I got up to my knees and saw the people in the passing cars starring at me. In every direction people were just as though they had been frozen where they stopped their vehicles. They didn’t know if they had just seen a person die or at best seriously injured. All but two stayed in their cars and watched as a few came rushing to my aid.

     One man ran up to me and said he used to be a paramedic and he instructed me to stay down but I just couldn’t let the enemy have a moment of satisfaction in this. What the enemy had meant for my harm had failed and he needed to see me stand up, and stand up I did! Right in the middle of the devil’s snare, I rose in victory. In some ways this was no different from Daniel in the lion’s den, he was kept safe in the midst of death and so was I.

    Right beside me in the middle lane next to where I had landed was my motorcycle, all 800 pounds of it. It had obviously flipped end over end after colliding with the car and had been in the air flying right behind me. If an angel of the Lord hadn’t moved me out of the way, I would have been crushed to death by that motorcycle.

    I walked away from the accident with a quarter sized road rash on my left elbow, a slightly separated right clavicle and a pulled groin muscle, that was it.  The groin injury was miraculously healed the following Monday night when a minister called out a word knowledge saying that someone had a groin injury.  When I heard him say that word out loud I said, “That for me!” I immediately felt the power of God heal my groin injury.

    doublemanThe traffic officer who investigated the accident asked me three times what had happened, I’d tell him and each time he would respond with, “You shouldn’t be alive! You need to go home and thank God you’re still alive!”  He went on to say that he had been investigating traffic accidents for many years and he had been in a motorcycle wreck himself and he knew this is a miracle.

     The following Saturday morning, while in prayer, the Lord said in an audible voice, “It’s the spirit of Jezebel!” Now I knew what had been the driving force behind all the evil at work and the cause of the attacks on my life for the Jezebel spirit opposes the prophet as it did with Elijah. The light had come and shined in on the darkness to reveal it and how bright the light was, I knew I had the victory!

     Early one morning, before anyone was at work, I went to the office of the person the Jezebel spirit was operating through, and I bound the spirit from manifesting in their lives at work. Always remember that our battle isn’t with flesh and blood (people) but against rulers, against powers, against the world forces of darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Eph. 6:12)  We are still required to pray for those who oppose us and love them regardless of what they are saying or doing to us at the time.

    The individual the spirit of Jezebel was operating through, was on vacation at this time and didn’t return until the next day. When I saw them, they were refreshed, happy and free and they thought it was all due to being on vacation – but I knew different.

    God had built me up in the Word by sending wave after wave of His wonderful Word to sustain me in the coming spiritual battle of my life and He will do the same for you. When you have done all to stand…stand!

  • The Stretching

    stretchingNote Added and Updated July 18, 2011

    This blog was written well before the Lord starting showing me the spiritual adultry of organzied religion. I was taught in my earlier years to submit to the pastor or you would be out of God’s will. In truth the Bible teaches for us to submit one to another. In the years that followed this blog God opened my spiritual eyes to the whoredom of the church system and showed how His people are committing spiritual adultry to the Babylon spirit by engaging in a man-made church system. I am no longer a part of the church system and have been shown many more things about it which I keep to myself for now.

    End of note,

    ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

    On Sunday just after my Pastor closed the service, I had a love offering I wanted to place in his right hand, which is sometimes jokingly referred to as “a Holy Ghost handshake.” I stepped up on the platform where my Pastor was standing, took him by his right hand as we embraced one another.We both began to weep then suddenly our tears turned to joyous laughter. We laughed in unison under the unction of Holy Spirit and my Pastor began saying, “He’s stretching me!” as he grabbed his abdomen. “It hurts, He’s stretching me!” I laid my hands on him and spoke, “Increase of more of God, more increase Lord, stretch him Lord!”

    God is stretching my Pastor’s ministry, his responsibilities, his beliefs and his territory.

    Prophecy: 5/25/2008

    I am making a way for more, more ministry, more of Me, more input, more of My realm. Increase, increase in the things of God. Take solace in the fact that the days ahead require more of the power of God working in the people of God.

    Mainstream ministries are content where they’re at, but the fledgling ones are hungry for more and who is like Me to confound the wise? Hidden away out of the sight of man and media, did I not do this with David the shepherd boy? In him was the destiny of a king as he stepped through his assignment in the fields of his father.

    Even My son Jesus was hidden among the people while I prepared Him for His assignment. No one knows the heart and the intent of a man’s heart but the Spirit of the Lord. When I choose a man, I intend for that man to be fully equipped in every area of his ministry.

    These are the times in which those who have made the necessary preparation to begin to shine forth as they come from the fields and from the hidden places in the earth. For these are the days of the end and I will raise up a people who have My heart and are willing to do whatever is necessary to win the lost souls.

    Remember to whom is given much, much is required…says the Lord.



  • Release My Word

    It was during the night some years past now but I still remember it like it was yesterday. I found myself sitting in a chair in heaven, which faced a large picture window. Through the window I could look down upon the earth as it slowly rotated in the big expanse of space.

     Then I heard Jesus speaking from directly behind me say, “There’s the problem, here’s My word!” I didn’t turn around but only focused on looking at the earth trying to see the problem He saw but it just appeared to be the same revolving earth as before He spoke.

    window-heavenThen Jesus let loose with His word and it was glorious. Everything in my spirit and ever fiber of my being was excited by Him speaking for truth. He spoke and spoke and then He stopped. I immediately jumped up out of the chair and ran over to the window and said, “And I release that into the earth!” No one told me to do that I just was so filled up with His word that I had to release it or explode.

     No sooner had I sat back down in the chair I heard Him say, “There’s the problem, here’s My word!” Once again my spirit and body were saturated with the glorious power of the Jesus speaking the word.

    “In the beginning was the word and the word was with God, and the word was God.” John 1. He spoke again as my entire being was shaking in the power of His word then stopped and as before I jumped up out of the chair and released it into the earth.

     This same process continued all of that night and then when I woke up my wife asked me if I had any dreams that night and I replied that it wasn’t a dream at all but I was in the spirit and I was taken to a room in heaven where Jesus watches over the earth, where He trains the saints how to address problems in the world we live in.

     The next night I found myself right back in the heaven, sitting in the same chair in front of the larger picture window watching the earth spin round and round. Jesus would point out problems then speak His word out loud and I would run to the window and release His word into the earth. As the first night the process lasted all night long. It was so thrilling and wonderful to hear Jesus speak forth the word. I can see why the officers that were sent to arrest Jesus returned without Him as in John 7:46 The officers answered, “Never has a man spoken the way this man speaks.”

     Now on the third night I again found myself seated in the same chair in heaven in front of the picture window that gave a perfect God eye view of the earth from His perspective. Immediately I heard Jesus begin to speak the word so powerfully as my being was caught up in the power of the Jesus who is the Word speak the Word. I started to jump up and release His words into the earth when before I could do it He stopped and said, “And I release that into the earth!”

    heaven-chair I quickly turned around for the first time to look at Him trying to understand what had just happened. Suddenly after two nights of doing this one way we’re changing now? I saw Jesus in a simple light cream colored gown walking away. Then he turned His head just enough to see me as He continued to walk away and said, “That one was for you!”

     The night ended and I woke up in my bed next to my wife answering the same question we ask every morning, “Did I have any dreams last night?” I said, “No, it wasn’t a dream, I was there with Him. He spoke His word and released into the earth for me!” Now I have to know what He spoke and released into the earth for me. When times are hard, lean even dry in the walk I always draw on this experience and say to Him, “Oh Lord that I may fulfill that which you have released in the earth for me to become!”

     I’m still in awe when I think about it. Oh saints of God what was Jesus teaching me.

     The message is simple. When we see or encounter a problem in the world we live in we’re not to say our useless words, murmur and complain or run from the problem but to find out what the word of God says concerning the situation and release it directly at the problem. We speak the word directly at the problem  as Jesus taught in Mt. 17:20 “say to the mountain.” Whatever it is that is you see wrong in your life, your relationships, your employment, your community, your nation speak the word of God over and until you see the problem removed by the power of the spoken word of God.

     “And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” Mt. 17:20

     Jesus wasn’t talking of the saints moving dirt or large rock formations but moving the impossible objects that oppose the plan and purposes of God in the earth from being accomplished as things are done in heaven.

     “Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name ‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. Mt. 6:9-10

    This is His will for you…to speak His word.

  • I Have Plans For You….

    who am iI am so humbled to have been asked to be an author on this blog…..when I was first asked, my initial response was fear and apprehension and doubt…..but as the Father said “It’s time….”, I began to feel the grounding stability of His belief in me come alive in the deepest parts of who I am.  There is so much inside of my spirit and my heart that I know I am to share…..and I trust Him to help me share WHAT I am to share and WHEN I am to share it.  But I know where I am to start….because it’s burning inside of me with His fingerprint on it saying “This…now…”

    No matter where you find yourself in your life at this moment…..don’t give up on yourself and don’t give up on God!  No matter what you have done, what you have put yourself through, what others have put you through, what life has put you through, what the enemy has put you through…..don’t give up!

    Nine months ago, my life as I knew it ended.  I found myself in a place where I couldn’t even see tomorrow, much less a future.  I saw no hope.  I saw no going on.  I was shattered and numb.  I would look at myself in the mirror and wonder who that person was that looked back at me.  I didn’t recognize anything in her eyes.  I would stare at them in complete unrecognition of who looked back at me.  And I would doubt.  And I would fear.  And I would question.  Until it would be so overwhelming I would turn away and forget what I had seen because it was too painful to try to digest.  I knew He had answers for me….and I knew I would hear them…..but the pain was too thick at the time to recognize clarity of any sort.  I would lay in bed at night, curled up in a ball of pain that was so intense I could only feel pieces of it at a time.  My heart was bleeding and tearing so violently on the inside….yet my face was chiseled like stone showing nothing.  I couldn’t utter a word.  I couldn’t listen to music.  I couldn’t read a book.  Hearing voices would make me cringe because the assault on my senses was just too much to handle.  Because I had to do something with it.  Anything that required me to process thoughts or emotions was more than I could take.  jer. 29_11I would run to my room and hide.  And I would hear this tender whisper on the inside…”I have plans for you.”   I recognized His voice.  I know His voice.  We are intimate, He and I.  He touches me where no one else can…..in the most tender places of my heart.  His whisper would be like a salve on the raw places of my heart.  I couldn’t speak.  I couldn’t respond.  Silent tears would roll down my face and I would lay still and quiet.  And I would choose to believe that it was true.  Because He is the only truth.  I have learned that no matter how real circumstances and emotions feel at the moment, the only truth that will stand and remain is Him and what He says about me.  So I believed Him.  He is faithful.  And as the days and weeks and months have somehow gone by, I find myself hearing that same whisper I have heard over and over, “I have plans for you…”   When I couldn’t see them…”I have plans for you.”   When I would wonder what they were…”I have plans for you…”  When I was doubting myself….”I have plans for you.”  And they are good plans.  They are plans of hope.   And although the future I foresaw myself having does not exist anymore, He has plans for my future….and for yours.
    the inside….”I have plans for you…”

    Jer 29:11 (NIV) “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

    So, thank you for letting me be a new addition to this amazing, supernatural blog.  Please know that this is the beginning of those plans that He has for me…..and I am humbled and excited at what He has in store for you and for me…because His ways are far above our ways and His thoughts are so far beyond ours…..and they’re always so much bigger and better than we could ever imagine.



  • My Wisdom Floods the Earth

    Prophecy 1/17/09

    In retrospect I am all things to all people. My wisdom floods the earth and My counsel is wise beyond all measure of problems and doubt. I am full of the wisdom of the ages to come, for I alone have understanding in these matters. Few seek My counsel in these matters for they think they can not know. Indeed they can know for I am not far removed from their paths. Pro. 3:19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

    gpsInside of each human resides a part of Me and the spirit of man is molded from creation for man to communicate with Me. It is as much a receiver as it is a transmitter. In your terms today compare it to how a Global Positioning System (GPS) works. It tells Me your location, direction, speed, course and it is always on, always transmitting, always tuned for My monitoring.

    Is. 3o:21 Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left.

    The difference between a believer and a non-believer is that the believer is receiving information about their course, speed, trouble, such as roadblocks, detours and the like as well as information about rest stops, provision, encouragement to press on and so much more. It is My desire that all would come to Me. I love all of my creation equally. In these last days it will become more and more vital to tune in and listen to My distinct voice as I prompt you with information about all manner of things from the smallest detail of your daily life to the realm of heavenly importance.

    Knowledge will flood your soul; the knowledge of God will come in flashes of revelation, in special counsel within My courts, dreams, visions and the unlocking of the mysteries of My word.

    girl_handMy plans are absolute, non-wavering and precise. I will accomplish My plan with you or without you, you must decide your choice. Come along for the ride of your life or pursue your own course that leads to defeat, confusion, disappointment, unbelief and a turning away from Me, ultimately death.

     Jer. 7:23 “But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you.’

    Now is the time to come and buy from Me fine gold and silver. This is the time to prepare for the wicked days ahead. Now is the time to be in prayer, soaking in My Spirit, permeating your soul with the love and wisdom of the Unwavering God.

    Take heed and listen, the storm of all storms is coming in the earth, but now is time of “Preparation of My Bride”. I say Come, Come Now!

  • Prayer and Speaking Against the Enemy

    How the events unfolded:

    Sunday Morning: 4:00 AM –  My Wife’s Dream

    angel1Early Sunday morning, my wife had a dream that a thief had broken into our house and was in her childhood bedroom.  In the dream, she entered the bedroom, grabbed the thief by the nape of his neck, had his face pinned to the floor, her knee in the middle of his back as she called 911 on her cell phone.  As she awoke, the dream seemed real and troubled her, so she began to speak against any thief, robber or attack of the enemy in our spiritual, emotional, physical or natural lives.  

    Monday Morning 12:44 AM – Bill Heard in the Spirit

    Last night at 12:44 AM,  In the Spirit, I heard the sound of very heavy footsteps traveling at a fast pace from the corner of our upstairs bedroom, across the room then out the bedroom door. The steps thundered inside of me like a base drum beating to a march, much like the energizer bunny commercials. I rose up in bed but didn’t see anything.  

    The next morning while in prayer I asked the Father why the angel was in our home and what was his name?  He said, “Patrolling the property, he doesn’t leave. I have appointed him to relieve Jae’s fear of robbery. His name is “Inconus”, which means “Bright Gallant One”. You will both hear him from time to time as he patrols the property. Oh, by the way I will add to your properties this year, indeed I will add too.” 

    That’s our comforting Father!

  • How to Grow the Anointing

    anointingYears ago I found myself absorbed in watching a particular TV ministry that moved in such a powerful anointing. I would see rows of people fall out under the Spirit or by the touch of God when this person ministered.  The things I witnessed could only be done by the Spirit of God. The man’s ministry wasn’t being done for entertainment but it was truly a legitimate and miraculous.

    As I watched night after night I began to ask God this question, “How do I grow in the anointing?” I asked this question allot over the next several weeks and would keep asking God until I got the answer. After all Jesus said, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.” Mat. 7:7

    Then the answer came in the night when I heard the Father say, “Prayer, supplication and determination, Luke 18”. I got out of bed and headed to my prayer closet with my Bible in hand, thinking what’s Luke 18, what’s in this chapter that answers my question?

    Luke 18 speaks of a widow who persistently petitions a judge for legal protection from an opponent, the judge did not fear God nor respect man. However, after a while seeing that the woman was not going to stop petitioning him for legal protection, he relented and gave her legal protection.

    In verse 7, “Now shall not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them?” There was my answer, the answer that would change my Christian life forever. I knew what I had to do to grow in the anointing, I must spend a greater amount of time in prayer, supplication and do it with determination until I see the anointing increase in my life, until I’m satisfied.

    prayerBrother Branham said so many years ago, “You’ve gone as far with God as you’re ever going to go until you’re willing to pay a greater price.”  Are you satisfied where you are spiritually? If so then good enough, but if you desire more of an interaction between you and heaven, if you desire more of an intimacy and more of a relationship with Jesus Christ, then perhaps you could consider how you could give more of yourself to Him.

    John G. Lake was a man who had been in ministry for a good many years with some success but he hungered for more. After re-consecrating his life to God, more anointing came upon him but he still felt on the edge of a greater spiritual realm but was unable to enter in fully, leaving him unsatisfied.

    Although many people were being healed by the power of God during the next few years, John G. Lake remained hungry for more of God, he walked down the streets of Chicago with his soul crying out, “Oh God,” as people stared at him.  All his friends would tell John that he had a beautiful anointing with the fullness of the Spirit, but he would declare over and over again that there was more.  

    Through out the years he pressed in for more of God and through various encounters with God he kept growing in the anointing and eventually was baptized in the Holy Spirit and lived out his life in the anointing of God  impacting his generation around the world.

    focusOur focus must get off ourselves, we must not live in our own self, our own thoughts, our soul, our feelings, our attitudes, trusting in our understanding and reasoning and leaning on our own abilities.  If we do these things, we will never move beyond where we are now, in fact eventually we may become discouraged, cold and lawless to His commandments.

    God is not a respecter of person; His word says, “And without faith it is impossible to please {Him}, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and {that} He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” Heb11:16. I remember years ago I dealt with a great internal struggle with this scripture.  I wondered if the effort that I put into seeking God would be worth the reward I’d receive by putting in all the time and effort necessary.

    “Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth”. Col. 3:1-2

    To grow in the anointing of God and fulfill what He desires for you to do, will require that you wait in prayer on Him and you set aside time for Him daily. To grow in the anointing you must sow back to God much of the anointing He gives you and that is done by spending time with Him. The more time you spend with Him, equates to more anointing operating in your life.

    Where you are currently in your Christian walk is a direct result of your prayer life. In other words your life will never exceed your prayer life. If you are not satisfied with where your life is now, then take an honest look back over the course of years and see if you can recognize if your prayer life is missing the three key elements to growing the anointing and walking in the plan of God, “prayer, supplication and determination”.

    Blessing To You!

  • Dear One (Letter One)

    This is the first interactive letter in response to questions and inquiries I receive about the supernatural and how to walk deeper in God. People want to know how to increase in the anointing of God. Over the course of time I will share what I have learned and experienced in my walk with God. Take these letters as your own personal writings and apply the wisdom to your life and you will see over time a remarkable difference in your relation with God and man.

    Dear One,

    wordFirst of all I thank you for loving God. He is wonderful and He has wonderfully made each one of us for His good pleasure. I would encourage you to pursue your artistic passion which by your own words you laid down so long ago. I read somewhere when first grade children were asked, “Who here is an artist?” The entire class raise their hands, when asked the same question years later, few raise their hands. Why do you suppose that is? Often children are told they are not an artist so they quit believing it. Perhaps they told themselves they were not talented good so they laid down a developing gift.

    I often get the question of how to go deeper into God. It all starts with a solid, daily prayer life, setting aside an appointed time as often as you can. I prefer early in the morning before my mind or my day gets busy. It’s better to put on the armor of God before going to battle than wait later in the day to get filled don’t you think?

    God understands our busy schedules and allows for us to do the things we have to do but only for a short amount of time will He allow us to continue to “skip out” on Him before we will get chastised for being absent. Our pursuit must be for Him, to know Him and better said, “To be known of Him.” How do you get to know someone? We get to know them by spending time together of course and God is no different.

    genesisGod builds us up in secret and reconstructs us to the point that we don’t identify with our old self any longer. He is the potter and we are the clay. A young man I mentored kept asking God, “What do I have that you so want that you called me to you?” This went on for days and one day he heard the Father say, “Absolutely nothing.” He was quite taken back by that response before he realized he was in pride before God.

    This walk is about one thing and that one thing will keep it fresh, alive, exciting and fun. It’s about RELATIONSHIP and nothing else, nothing else matters to Him. Understand that God has many people who are doing, and want to do great things for Him, but He wants people to spend time with Him. Few do, few will, few understand because they get caught up in their gifts, their self accomplishments, making a name for themselves or other vain aspects of life. After all we are human beings not human doings.

    I want to accomplish what He assigns for me to do. Some of the things He has assigned to me I wasn’t His first choice because He told me others were appointed but refused. I will do anything He asks of me and just say, “That’s OK with me Lord.” We’ve become closer over the years and so can anyone else who desires to.

    We must study the word! A couple of weeks ago when conversing with the Lord I said, “Father there are so many churches that have pastors and teachers that don’t know You or understand the depths of Your word.” Immediately He corrected me by saying, “2 Timothy 2:15.” It’s up to each believer to get into His Word, not only memorize it but to know it, to know the audience, to know the context, and learn the wisdom of God, to know and understand the correlation to other verses so strange doctrines aren’t created. The Word…He watches over His word to perform it.

    oilI recommend to all Christians who want to grow into the depths of God, to read the classic Christian authors such as Francois Fenelon, Michael Molinos, Madam Jeanne Guyon and Bro. Lawrence. These wonderful Christians lived in the 1600’s and teach about dying to self, about meditations and bringing God in to the simplest daily task like no other authors I’ve ever read! You can never finish these books; they just keep revealing the depths of dying to self more and more. I don’t say this to frighten you but to encourage you to enter deeper into the hands of God. He calls you to deep!

    I love your words about Jesus and that He only did what He saw the Father do. As Christians, if we could only grasp the depths of that statement and to pursue God, to wait on Him and to allow Him to show us His works. It seems like you have a ministry to the deaf, a gift and a big heart to share God’s Word through pictures to them. What a wonderful thing this is, for the word of God changes lives!

    In His Name,

    Bro. Bill



  • COME!

    Prophecy – 1/8/09

    I heard the Lord say,

    It is at these times that I desire My people to draw close to Me, My shepherds, My sheep, all in the name of the Lord.

    Dryness will fall away, tears of sadness will turn to joy, lies will turn from your lips and truth will resound in your words for the faithful will stand and I will strengthen your feelble legs and make your hands as iron.

    In the night call upon Me, in your hour of prayer I’ll be there.  For the Lord beckons His body to come to Him and the Lord says come!

  • Portals of Heaven, Ancient Gates

    I believe understanding the things of God is vital to walking in the fullness of what God has given us in the new covenant through Jesus Christ. I by no means have full understanding, but I do have access to the Father in heaven and so do you.

    So why talk about portals?

    The church body, for the most part, has little or no knowledge of the existence of portals and does not recognize their significance.  Historically, God has used portals in the events of man and continues to do so today.

     When we sing the verse in Psalm 24:7 about the gates or ancient doors we have no idea what we are singing about but it sounds good to our ears.  Oh saints of God, I hope that somehow I may be able to reveal  the beauty of what God is saying to us through this verse.

    “Lift up your heads, O gates,
    And be lifted up O ancient doors,
    That the King of glory may come in!” Ps. 24:7

    What are ancient doors and ancient gates?

    Ancient gates or doors are portals of access established by God from the third heaven to earth.  They are unobstructed by demonic interference in which angels travel from heaven and back again while provisions  are delivered, transportation, translation and revelation are given to man. 

    In Daniel 10:13 he is informed that the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding (standing opposite) the angel for twenty one days.  Michael one of the chief princes (angels) came to help fight through the portal in the demonic land of Babylon to give Daniel understanding.

    In the book of Genesis, chapter 28, verses 10-17 the story of Jacob’s dream is recorded. “He had a dream, and behold, a ladder was set on the earth with its top reaching to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.” Gen. 28:12 

    In verse 13 God is standing at the top of the ladder.  “And behold, the LORD stood above it and said, “I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie, I will give it to you and to your descendants.”

    These verses are a wonderful account of how God reveals a portal in a dream to man a prophesy Jacob’s destiny to him.

    Once in praise and worship at our church, I saw a portal open above me that looked like a tornado and at the top of the swirling cloud was this face smiling and waving at me.  It only lasted a few seconds but it was a gate or ancient door that opened up for me.

     Mt. Horeb

    God established a portal from the third heaven to Mt. Horeb.

    Elijah was instructed to leave from sitting under a juniper tree to Mt. Horeb to see and hear what God had to show him. Sometimes it is necessary to leave from where you are to another place to hear or experience God; wise men still travel to see Him!

    “So He said, ‘Go forth and stand on the mountain before the LORD.’ And behold, the LORD was passing by! And a great and strong wind was rending the mountains and breaking in pieces the rocks before the LORD; {but} the LORD {was} not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, {but} the LORD {was} not in the earthquake.” 1 Kings 19:11

     Proverbs 8:34 teaches that a man will be blessed who sits, and waits, and listens at the Lord’s gate.

    Oh, that You would rend the heavens {and} come down, That the mountains might quake at Your presence–As fire kindles the brushwood, {as} fire causes water to boil– To make Your name known to Your adversaries, {That} the nations may tremble at Your presence! When You did awesome things which we did not expect, You came down, the mountains quaked at Your presence. Is. 64:1-3

    “Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my doorposts.”

     Lot

    In Genesis 19:1 Lot is waiting at the gate of Sodom when two angels appear to him. In the ancient world, the gate of the city was not only an outlet, but also where meetings of great importance occurred.

    “And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing [them] rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground.”

     In Genesis 18:21 the Lord states that He will go down to investigate or scout it out for Himself to see this evil which is stinking up the heavens.  “I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.”

    The “go down” happens when the angels appear at the gate or ancient door of the city.

     Portals for Provision

    In Psalm 78:23-25, God opened the doors of heaven and fed the Hebrews in the desert the food of angels.

    “Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven, and had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven, man did eat angels’ food: he sent them meat to the full.”

    Ezekiel – Portals Opened

    Now it came about in the thirtieth year, on the fifth {day} of the fourth month, while I was by the river Chebar among the exiles, the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God. Ezk. 1.1

    The hand of the LORD was on me there, and He said to me, “Get up, go out to the plain, and there I will speak to you.” So I got up and went out to the plain; and behold, the glory of the LORD was standing there, like the glory which I saw by the river Chebar, and I fell on my face. Ezk. 3:22-23

    It came about in the sixth year, on the fifth {day} of the sixth month, as I was sitting in my house with the elders of Judah sitting before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD fell on me there. Then I looked, and behold, a likeness as the appearance of a man; from His loins and downward {there was} the appearance of fire, and from His loins and upward the appearance of brightness, like the appearance of glowing metal. Ezk. 8:1-2

    Portals Over Geographical Locations

    Habakkuk

    In the second chapter of Habakkuk we see the prophet faithful to watch and to see what the Lord will say to him and that what the Lord speaks,  to write it down. Habakkuk is waiting at the place where he faithfully goes to pray and wait upon the Lord. 

    Often God will establish a portal over a geographical location after long prayer and supplication has been made by a faithful servant of God.

    “I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make [it] plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” Hab. 2:1-2

    In November of 2003 after moving from the Dallas area to Central Texas (the wilderness) I felt compelled by God to desperately pray for a well to be established in our home.  Read my blog titled “When God Fills the Well”. Read When God Fill the Well

    That day, God established a portal in our home, and since then, our home hasn’t been the same. Witnessed by ourselves and others, at times, angels are seen coming and going into the earth on secret assignments as well as to bring us revelation, anointing, answers to our prayers and a sundry of things as God desires.

    The Lord has promised us, that as long as we remain at our current location, the portal will be established;  When we leave the house the portal will be removed. 

    Portals can be established in certain geographical places and some are known today in the earth such as over Jerusalem. Many Christians who travel to Jerusalem report being flooded with revelation of the things of God during supernatural experiences such as dreams, visions, transportations back and forward in time and these experiences are not uncommon.

    Many Christians visiting John Wesley’s (1703 –1791) home in England, tell that when they enter in his prayer closet, that they experience the presence of God! 

     Portals Established Over Individuals

    Jesus

    Portals can also be established over a person life as we find over Jesus’ life.

    And He *said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.” Jn. 1:51

    “Now when all the people were baptized, Jesus was also baptized, and while He was praying, heaven was opened,” Lk. 3:21

    “While he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said, ‘This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!”’ Mat. 17:5

    “After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove {and} lighting on Him, and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.” Mat. 3:16-17 

    Apostle John

    heavenly ladderWhile John was in exile on the isle of Patmos, a portal opened and he began to receive great mysteries of things to come.  This is a great example of a portal, door or ancient gate opening between the third heaven  and a great example of how God uses a portal to establish revelation of His mysteries to man.

    “After these things I looked, and behold, a door {standing} open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like {the sound} of a trumpet speaking with me, said, ‘Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.”’ Rev 4:1

    “And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, ‘Come up here.’ Then they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies watched them.”’ Rev. 11:12

    “And I saw heavenopened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it {is} called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. “ Rev. 19:11

    Maria Woodworth-Etter

    There have been several ministries throughout history where God established a portal over a person, and when they ministered, revival s with signs and wonders occurred with the presence of God filling the church or even the region such as Maria Woodworth-Etter (1844–1924).

     Today’s Relevance

    In Zechariah 3, Joshua the high priest was clothed in filthy garments, standing before an angel, and the angel said, “Remove the filthy garments from him.” The angel declares that the iniquity has been taken away from Joshua and he is now clothed in festival garments and then a clean turban is placed upon his head.

    Then in Zech. 3:7 Joshua is given charge to the Lord’s court and free access to those standing there.

    “Thus says the LORD of hosts, ‘If you will walk in My ways and if you will perform My service, then you will also govern My house and also have charge of My courts, and I will grant you free access among these who are standing {here.}   ‘Now listen, Joshua the high priest, you and your friendswho are sitting in front of you–indeed they are men who are a symbol, for behold, I am going to bring in My servant the Branch (Jesus).” Zech. 3:7-8

     Heavenly Access

    Christians have been granted access through Jesus Christ to come boldly before the throne of God.  

    Paul wrote about the access to the Father by Jesus in Ephesians, “For through Him we both have our accessin one Spirit to the Father.” Eph 2:18 says, “In whom we have boldness and confident accessthrough faith in Him.” Eph. 3:12

    While reading Daniel 12:3-4 a few weeks ago, the Holy Spirit flashed inside my spirit understanding of a hidden mystery in the above two verses of scripture. 

    The context of Daniel 12 is dealing with the times which we are in now. The book was written for our time and as Daniel 12:9 Daniel is told to go his way for the words are sealed up until the end time. Verse 3 speaks of those Christians who have insight and those who will lead many to righteousness and will shine brightly like expanse of the heavens and the stars forever! 

    “Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.  But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.” Dan. 12:3-4

    How Did They Get Insight?

    mysteriesIn Daniel 12:4 the mystery is revealed, “Many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”

    The back and forth speaks of believers experiencing open gates, ancient doors or portals between the third heaven and earth. Much insight in the last days will come from angels descending to believers or believers ascending to heaven and thus knowledge will increase.

     The context of these two verses is, that in the last days God will raise up some believers who will bring much revelatory insight to the body of Christ and to the world for the gathering in of the saints and lost souls.

    Much of this personal revelation will be revealed when the gates of heaven open to people and they are taught mysteries such as what is holding back revival from happening in our churches, cities and regions of the earth. There will be individuals who minister under a portal or open heaven and carry a heavy anointing upon their lives, and wherever they travel, revival will break out, miracles occur and a great harvest of end-time souls will be won to God. 

    By open portal encounters, Biblical understanding of the scriptures will come, bringing clarity to the meaning of the verses, thus bringing correction to errant doctrines in some doctrinal areas in the church today, at least to those who are willing to accept truth.  Indeed, some saints are already experiencing these open heaven encounters and speak and write about them today.

     Paul Caught Up Through a Portal

    Paul experienced great revelation just as spoken by the prophet Daniel in chapter 12:3-4. Paul heard such inexpressible words that he knew he was not permitted to speak.

    “I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago–whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, God knows–such a man was caught up to the third heaven.  And I know how such a man–whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak.”  2Cor. 12:2-4

     In Summary

    If you read the verses of Psalm 24:7, it speaks of the King coming in or coming down through the ancient gate or door and as Daniel 12:3-4 records “back and forth” of believers in third heaven experiences.  “Lift up your heads, O gates, And be lifted up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in!” Ps. 24:7

    In Psalm 118:19-20 the scriptures speak of the believer entering in, “Open to me the gates of righteousness; I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to the LORD. This is the gate of the LORD; The righteous will enter through it.” Ps. 118:19-20

     I strongly believe that as the body of Christ, that we don’t seek portals or gates or even to minister under an open heaven.  We do seek God with all our hearts, and it is by our continually seeking Him, and being faithful to His house, that portals may be established at God’s discretion for His purpose and glory.

  • Three Point Nine Zero Years To Go

    In the early morning about 6:00 AM on January 2, 2005, while still lying in bed an angel of the Lord was dispatched to me and I heard in an announcing voice, “Three point nine years to go!”

    The voice wasn’t the Father, Jesus or Holy Spirit but an angel. I’ve never heard before then or since anyone counting years as how the angel had just stated them to me. Immediately I got up out of bed and went to my computer and counted out three point nine years. The date I came up with was November 25, 2008.

    Now the years have came and went and allot of things have changed in the earth. I have pondered over this so much over the years just quietly listen to see if the Lord would reveal anything else about this date.
    During this period another angel was dispatched to me early one morning. I saw him in the spirit coming up the alley behind our house pushing a buggy used for delivering packages. He was dressed as a postman in an old wool uniform. He stopped his buggy, reached in and selected a manila envelope. Then he turned and came through the back gate and walk up to the back door and knocked. I opened the door and he handed me the manila envelope and said, “Special delivery!”
    Then I awoke and got up out of bed and went downstairs to my secret place to seek what the Father had just delivered to me. I opened my bible to Daniel 8:19 He said, “Behold, I am going to let you know what will occur at the final period of the indignation, for {it} pertains to the appointed time of the end 
    Immediately, I understood how to map out the Leviticus feast and unravel the mystery of the timeline give in Daniel. I will release that revelation in another blog in the near future.  The main thing I want to share in this blog is that Jesus said, “For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. Mt. 24:37
    When you study the timeline of the flood the bible says the flood began on the seventeenth day of the second month. Since this is pre-levitical this is the secular calendar and not the Jewish religious calendar. This occurs in the month or Heshvan, which begins this year, is the 15th November in the Julian calendar. 
    This past Wednesday morning, October 22, 2008, while lying in bed, I heard in the spirit one “click”.  It sounded like a latch had closed. I awoke and rose up in bed and listened in the natural but heard nothing but the stillness of the night. 
    I was very puzzled and began to seek the Father as to what it meant. Then later during the day I felt like I should look at the countdown calendar to see if this “click” could be of any significance to the three point nine year countdown. 
    There is was, thirty-six days to go to November 25, 2008. A tenth of a year is 36 days. The click was the last click before in the countdown the angel had given me. Also, October 22, 2008 was the first day after the last day of the Feast of Booths. Then the “click” I heard in the spirit and 36 days later will conclude the three point nine year countdown.  

     

    All the years I’ve wondered about this and told only a handful of people and now we are so close to something, which will initiate natural and spiritual events spoken of in Daniel. 

     

    If you watch any news you couldn’t help but notice that the world economy is in a desperate death spiral. What could be next? There are so many things we could speculate about but the most likely could be Israel attacks Iran. Think about it, if Obama is elected president Israel will certainly feel pressure to do something before he takes office. Currently the Israeli government is in chaos. The world economy is poised to crash. Iran continues to threaten Israel, United Kingdom and the US as well as the many terrorists who would like nothing better than strike the free world countries.

    In the near future I will begin to share with you other mysteries God has given me for these times. The only delay has been due to the church’s unwillingness to listen. When I’m released by the Father I will show you the mysteries in the scriptures of the timeline of Christ return. 

    Keeping watching, be vigilant, pray always, and make preparation as the Bride of Christ, for we are entering into dangerous times…indeed, like the earth has never known.

     In Christ Service,

  • When God Tells You To Go

    Today is September 26, 2008, exactly five years since I resigned my position with a communication company in Dallas, Texas. In June of 2005, the Lord gave me a dream and the dream forevehandr changed the course of my walk with the Lord.

    Dream:

    I was sitting in my office at work when an angel came and stood looking over the high cubicle wall. He was tall but had no facial features other than a green Gumby-looking shaped head. The angel was wearing a green blazer; I could see that he had another green blazer in his left hand and draped over his left shoulder.

    The angel said, “It’s time to go!” I said, “Am I being fired?” The angel said, “It’s time to go!” I said, “What about all my stuff?” He said, “You don’t need that anymore.” I got up from my desk, walked down a long hallway with the angel to my left.  I was staring at the blazer knowing that it represented a mantel. This was the same long hallway that security walked employees out as they were being laid off.  The angel escorted me out the door and the dream ended.

    My wife and I knew this dream confirmed other words and dreams we had received from Holy Spirit, that we were to quit our jobs and move back home to where we are currently living. 

    trailWe both had great paying jobs.  We owned a five bedroom home with a three car garage situated on a lake in a very quiet and secluded area in the city. It would seem like allot to give up but we just wanted to follow God’s plan for our lives no matter what we had to give up.  I knew I had to pursue Him in this journey to obtain the mantel.

    We put our home on the market and waited for it to sell. We waited and waited but nothing came of it. As September rolled around I re-read a prophecy that a man of God had given me; it said that if we would step out in faith, God would come in behind us like never before. Therefore, even without our home being sold, we decided to jump out in faith.  No matter how much faith we had or how clearly we had heard God’s word to us, the house payments keep coming in month after month.

    On September, 26, 2005 I left my job, my work place ministry, some friends, our beloved home, church, city, lifestyle and everything that we loved in order to follow Him. God doesn’t ask everyone to follow this path, because few are willing to go the far with Him. It takes an extreme measure of faith and the honor of God to follow Him wherever He asks us to go.

    Before moving to our new location we had been supernaturally yoked with our new Pastors. They shared many accounts where they had left great wealth, homes and cities to go where He had asked them. It truly helped to strengthen our faith and resolve because it seemed to us that they had been through much worse than what we were facing.  Read Elisha Followed Elijah…

    desertJust as Elisha followed Elijah through hard places, when you’re truly yoked with a ministry, you may find that you go through many of the same things they went through. Elisha followed Elijah to Gilgal, Bethel, Jericho and finally to Jordan. 

    The word Gilgal actually means “rolling away our reproach,” Bethel means, “making our approach to God, Jericho and fighting the battle for God” and Jordan means, “entering into death in Christ.”

    This is the path you will certainly take if you’re going to follow God’s plan for your life. We lived for four years and eleven months on some savings we had tucked away and virtually no other income what-so-ever, and our house didn’t sell for nineteen months!  We were living for God and pursuing Him with everything in us while still making large house payments during those months.  God did sustain us through it all and spiritually we have been transformed in so many ways that we hardly really relate to our old selves while back in “Egypt.”

    dry groundMy advice to anyone who believes they are to move or to do something for God, is being totally sure and unequivocally confident that you have heard God in the matter and not just in your soul. I believe a key that is often neglected in following God’s plan, is the failure to journal their dreams, their visions and the words they hear from the Father.  It’s impossible to remember in detail everything you are hearing and seeing to any great degree. In fact, if you will be faithful to journal, God will give you more and more things because you are honoring Him and listening carefully to Him. Perhaps journaling will be the subject of one of my blogs in the future.

    Now, both my wife and myself are employed, we’re actually working together for an awesome company, with an awesome boss in work place ministry.  We mentor drug and alcohol addicts with love and the word of God.  We now have regular income once again and are we’re beginning to get our life back, but we’re different, so different!

    We look back on our five years in the wilderness as a holy and precious time with God.  He led us through a slow death in Him yet at the same time a new life in Christ.  

    God is faithful! If you will continue to be faithful to Him and to His house, He will prove Himself faithful to you and your house!

    Go and be blessed in Him,

    Bro. Bill



  • Holy Dreams Given After Brad’s Passing (Move On But Remember!)

    On September 3, 2008, Brad passed away five months ago to the day. We still have moments from time to time but shortly after his passing God did give the family some dreams to help heal and show his marvelous love for us. Our hope is that when you read these dreams you will see how Holy Spirit comforts and confirms that the righteous are truly loved and taken care of in the marvelous, illuminating light and love of the eternal God. God assured us that Brad was in heaven and having a BLAST!!!!! WOW!

    New Dreams Added -Update 10-14-09

    These two dreams came to Wendy and Jodie on the same night. Pretty remarkable when you think about it. What an amazing God we have.

    Wendy’s Dream:

    brad-montagueI dreamed that the “O” was all spending time together and someone looked over and said, “LOOK!”  We all looked & there was a large Egyptian-looking tomb with steps leading up out of it.  We saw a man’s figure walking out of it.  I looked closer and said, “THAT’S BRAD!”  He was wearing khaki shorts and his green island shirt he used to wear on the cruises.  He was smiling and walking towards us.  We all stared stunned, of course.

    He walked up to me and smiled real big and said, “Hi Pook!”  I said, “HI!”  He hugged me real big.  We felt such love for each other but it was like a very special brother-sister type of love.  He looked at Chris and said, “Hey guy!  How’s it going for you two?”  Chris looked dumbfounded and said, “It’s going great!”  Brad laughed and playfully said, “That’s awesome!  I’m very happy for you!  And hey, why don’t you wipe that silly look off your face!”  We all started to laugh.  He knew we were in shock, he was just being funny…like Brad!

    I looked over at Bill and he had his phone out video taping everything.  He had started videoing the minute he saw Brad walking out of the tomb.  He said, “I want all of this documented as proof for people to see!”  I said, “Hurry everyone!  Hug him before he has to leave!  He probably can’t stay long!”  Brad said, “Actually I got a 3-day pass!  I get to stay and visit for 3 days.”  I said, “Really?!  You can do that?!”  He laughed and said, “Yes I can.  I missed all of you and requested it, so here I am.”  We were all so excited.  He took turns spending time with each individual member of the “O”, talking privately with Mom, with Jas, with Jo, with Bill.  He played with Mollee and told her how big she had gotten & how beautiful she was.

    He looked around and said, “Where’s Caleb?”  I said, “OH!  He’s taking a nap inside!  C’mon let’s surprise him!”  Brad smiled so big, excited to see him.  We walked into a dark room and I said, “Wait out here!”  I went in & told Caleb, “Hey Bud, wake up!  I have someone that wants to see you.”  Caleb sat up and rubbed his eyes.  Brad walked in and smiled SO big.  He stretched out his arms and said, “TA-DA!!!!”  Then sat down by Caleb on the bed.  Caleb looked at him in disbelief, then he started to cry and wrapped his arms around Brad in a big hug.  They hugged for a long time.

    Later that night, I told Chris, “Do you think he’s really still here?!”  We went to check and Brad was laying on the floor, asleep, on a pallet.  I touched him and said, “Brad…are you asleep?”  He blinked and said, “Yeah what’s up?”  I said, “I was just making sure you were still here..and not…gone again.”  He smiled & said, “No Pook…I’m here for 2 more days.”

    A few days later we were at church after Brad had gone back to Heaven.  I was taking Bill’s phone around to person after person showing them the video saying, “LOOK!  Heaven is SO real!  Your loved ones are ALIVE!  You will see them again!”

    This was a wonderful, LIFE-LIKE dream.  It was SO good to see Brad!

    Jodie’s Dream 10-14-09

    dream journalI cant tell you how this has blessed me. I had been thinking about him alot lately and talking to God about how much I missed him. Night before last I dreamed I was walking along side a river. It was Spring time and I was taking real deep breaths of air because the smell of flowers was so strong. Birds were chirping. I could feel the grass under my bare feet. When I stopped to look at the water I heard grass crunching like someone walking up behind me. I turned around and it was Brad. He was walking kinda slow and was grinning from ear to ear…lol….I can still see it. I said in excitment,”Brad! Oh my Gosh!” I began to cry and as he approached me he put his hand up in a manor to say “hold on a minute”…and he said, “Now whats that all about, Sis???” I said, “Brad I’ve just missed you so much..we all have! I cant believe Im standing here talking to you…I wish everyone was here!” He put his hand on my arm and said,”Sis, I have so much love…I feel so much love…like I’ve never felt before.” I smiled and said,”I am so happy for you Brad.” He looked down a minute as if he heard something and then looked right up into my eyes. He said,”Jo….that’s what its about…Love. That’s what it was all about….Love….”
    ….Then I woke up….I knew right away what “it” was. The whole process of why he went to Heaven and didnt stay. It was so awesome and I have such peace about the whole thing. I didnt know I needed it, but I have it now! lol….

    JODIE’S DREAM ABOUT BRAD

     brad beachI was walking into a house I had never been in before but was somehow familiar…As soon as I opened the front door and stepped inside I heard Brad laugh and it startled me! I started toward the door I thought I heard him in and he walked passed the door way with a platter in his hands. As he walked by he was smiling and talking to someone sitting at a table. I wanted to go in, but couldn’t. I thought inside,”But I want to talk to him! I want him to know I’m here!” He looked up from the table toward me and said, “In time, but not right now.” He turned and kept talking to whoever he was visiting with…

    MOLLEE’S DREAM ABOUT BRAD (As told by Jo)

     I woke her up this morning for school and she turned her face into the pillow and said, “No I’m not through yet…!” I knew she was still in dream mode……she opened her eyes and looked at me and smiled and said…”Uncle Brad is proud of me..”  I said “huh?” She said Uncle Brad told me he was so proud of me for making right choices….I said,”Did you dream about Uncle Brad?” and she said,”Yes! and you woke me up and I wasn’t through!” I said,”what was he doing?” she said, “I didn’t see him but I could smell him and hear him…”   Wahhhhhhh….  OH! and she said he was holding my hand!

    Bill’s Dream About Brad

    I walked up to a door that was shut. I knew Brad was in there. I pushed open the door a slight bit and peeked in. I saw Brad lying on the left side of the room in a hospital bed with his head and feet pointed away from us.  Someone came and placed a mattress that just fit the doorway opening so we couldn’t go in or see much. I did see a bright light that was coming in through an east facing window.  It shone on Brad brightly.  We tried to see him two or three more times but he was gone.

    Wendy’s Dream About Brad

     Early this morning I dreamed that my phone rang.  I looked at it and it said “Pook calling”.  (Which was Brad’s name in my phone).  I stared at it in disbelief & started trembling.  I answered & said “Hello?”  Brad said, “Hey Baby, it’s me!”  I was completely stunned & said “Wow.  Hi.”  He said, “Listen, I only have a minute but I wanted to tell you that it’s glorious here!!  No words could ever describe it!”  I was still in such shock.  I said, “Really?!”  He said, “Oh yes…and Baby, it’s true.  When you get here, there is a schooling.  Some people get here and they think they know truth, but they don’t.”  Then he said with such excitement, “But, when I got here.. I KNEW!  I knew truth!  What I knew WAS TRUE!  Don’t ever wonder, Babe, because it’s TRUE!”  I said, “How did you call me?!”  He laughed & said, “I have no idea.  They just said you had sent me a couple of text messages and that it would be good for you to hear from me.”  (Twice at moments I missed Brad so much I sent him a text just to see his name in my inbox)  I said, “I love you so much & I miss you!”  He said, “I love you too…and I’ll see you soon!  I have to go now.”  I said, “Ok.”  Then he said, “OH WAIT!”  He chuckled like he was tickled about something & said, “Tell Mom…” and he started singing “The sun’ll come out tomorrow…”  As he sang it faded out until I couldn’t hear him anymore.

    -End-

  • New Realm

    8/31/08

     

    realmGod is saying to us now…Step up, believe Me, use Faith to cloth yourself in righteous acts….and we are, we will, indeed it is a new realm in which we have entered so quietly, in secret, only known by those who are pursuing God…who’s heart yearns for Him in the night and seeks Him during the day…a secret realm…where God is ushering His quick answers to our prayers…quick, faithful.

     

    To answer and be available to our ever need…our care, inspire us to hope and to believe in Him more and more growing our faith like an avalanche rushing down a mountain devouring all obstacle to its path….completeness comes to us in the days ahead…the years, the next few will bring us to the place where we don’t recognize our past failures, our past lives, our old faith…has been decimated by the new God faith that is ushered from our breath as we are marching to the days of Christ imminent return.

     

    Casting down strongholds like match sticks….thrusting the sword of faith into the powers of the earth causing all our enemies to tremble…for we’re not the same any more….we been transformed into warriors of the living God!



  • Powers and Principalities

     

    tophatIn October of 2004, I was in an intense time of seeking God and was given a dream where I saw people in San Francisco starting a new political campaign. They were clamoring about making a banner and they had several hats they wanted to attach to the banner. One of the hats was a WW1 army helmet and one was a top hat like the old politicians used to wear, they wanted to split one of the hats and decided on the cutting the top hat in half. Afterwards they commented how good it looked after they cut it in half 

     

    The WW1 helmet represents and old world warring power and the top hat represents a political movement. The top hat being cut in half means the political power was to be shared between the east and west coast but the warring power was kept in one piece.

    Then I saw the political powers seated at a table in San Francisco facing across the entire span of the country as they were interviewing all the political leaders seated at a table in New York.   Both tables had all the highest ranking political, government, judicial and religious leaders represented. 
     The position which was being interviewed for was for the police chief.  They ask, “Who wants this power we are offering?” One by one the governor, mayor and police chief turned it down until it came to a man wearing a Pope’s hat (MITRE) and he said, “I want this power!” 

     

    He was asked do you really want this power or do you just want to come out here and eat in our fine restaurants? He responded, “I want this position.” I was amazed that all the others present had turned this down but the religious leader wanted this evil power at all cost.

    ww1 helmetThen I taken by the Spirit to the upstairs landing of our home and was caught in between the powers of the principalities of the West coast and the East coast offering this evil power. When I took one step in front of a window at the top of our landing, I was immediately being sucked in by the powerful force of incredible evil. It sounded like a raging jet engine and it tried to pull me into its evil grasp.  I felt the sting of thousands of needle-like objects hitting my skin as I cried out to Jesus with all my strength! Then the jet engine revved up even harder,  I couldn’t get free from it and began to lose my strength to even speak.

    Inside of my being I was crying out “Jesus, Jesus” and prayed in the Spirit over and over again yet there was no one to help me. I felt strength leaving my body and I knew if it did, I would be consumed by this evil power. Suddenly, I was thrown back into my bed with a bounce by the Spirit, I was startled yet glad to be free from that evil force. I looked at the clock and it was 3:16 AM, I began to quote John 3:16 over and over again.

    If this had not have been a God-given experience, I would have to classify it as a horrible nightmare but with God I know I’m safe and He will not do anything to harm me. I told my wife, “You never know when you lay down at night what the Spirit of the Lord has for you but you can rest in knowing that He is Sovereign and we can trust Him always.”

    city hallIn 2004, Gavin Newsom, the mayor of San Francisco gained national attention in 2004 when he directed the city clerk to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and later that same year the California Supreme Court voided them. As recent as a few months ago, the California Supreme Court struck down the ban on gay marriages and the mayor quoted from the front of City Hall as a gay couple was married on June 16 of this year saying, “As California goes, so goes the nation!” Now the chant by many gay citizens in the streets of California is, “In all 50 states!”

    Even before the official date of June 16, 2008, the governor of New York said that New York would honor the gay marriages in California. Truly they have been sucked into the power of this principality.

    California has been the leader to this nation in trends, styles, laws, political issues, market place, media, movies, fashion and much more for many years and all of it is due to the principality, which rules over the region and wants to gain influences in all of America.

    Now you know why!

    Please don’t think I’m gay bashing by any means, I promise you I am not and never will. I am not talking about gay issues here at all but the result of the evil spiritual influences that all mankind have been up against and how they work to gain influences at the highest level of our governments just as they have always ruled this world since the fall of Adam.

    Pray for our nation, pray for our leaders, pray that the church will wake up and come out from among the influence of evil and do as the word says in Rev. 18:4 “I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues.”

    See scripture references:

    Rom 8:38-39 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


    Eph. 6:12
    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. v. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

    Col. 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

    Col 2:15 [And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

    Eph. 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly [places] might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,



  • God Is Waiting For You to Speak His Word

    A few years ago while asleep, I found my spirit man sitting in a room in heaven. Directly in front of me was a large window and I could see the earth down below. I sensed Jesus was standing to my immediate right and slightly behind me. earth

    I heard Jesus say, “See the problem” as I was directed to look upon the earth, He then said, “This is my word.” He began to declare His word over the problem. When Jesus would say, “See the problem” I didn’t see any problem when I looked out the window at the earth below. It soon became apparent I was in a training class and the instructor was Jesus Christ Himself.

    As He spoke His words, everything in my spirit man was filled with the most powerful anointing I’d ever felt, and as soon as He finished speaking, without hesitation, I stood up, pointed at the earth and shouted, “And I release that into the earth!” Then I sat back down and the sequence was repeated all night long as Jesus would point out problems in the earth. He would declare His word over it and I would stand up and release it into the earth.

    When I awoke the next morning, my wife asked me if I had experienced any dreams during the night as we do most mornings and I told her that it wasn’t a dream but I was sitting in a room in heaven with Jesus in some sort of heavenly school with Jesus.

    The next night I found my spirit man back in heaven sitting in the same chair I had sat in the night before, I was again gazing out the window at the earth. Then I heard Him say, “See the problem” as my attention was focused on the earth below. He then said, “This is my word.” Again when He spoke His word, everything in my spirit man was filled with the most powerful anointing I’d ever felt. As soon as He finished speaking, without hesitation I would stand up and point at the earth and shout, “And I release that into the earth.”

    This sequence was repeated all night just as it occurred during the first night.

    On the third night I was once again sitting in the same chair, looking out the window towards earth. This time Jesus began to speak and my spirit man was filled with excitement as the “Living Word” spoke. I was about to jump up out of my chair and release what He said into the earth when I heard Him say, “I release that into the earth”.

    This caught me off guard because the other two nights I had done all the releasing of His word. I turned to look back to where Jesus was and I saw Him in a cream colored robe walking away from me, and as He walked, He turned His head back towards me and said, “That one was for you.”
    That ended three nights of one the most amazing encounters with Christ I’ve ever had. About a year later, while my wife and I were sitting on the patio of a Mexican restaurant, I heard Him say, “Now you do it.” I knew He was referring to the heavenly encounter I had experienced a year prior.
    God wants us to recognize the problems in our life, family, church, city, region and world and find out what He says about it in His word and then release the word of God over situations in order to see dramatic change in the earth.

    On another occasion about a year later, I received an email from a man who worked at the same company I used to work, the email was very inspiring and I sensed the anointing of the Holy Spirit as I read it. I was very blessed by his words of faith and support and I said, “Lord, bless everyone who prays for us,” Immediately, I heard the Father say, “With what?”

    This response surprised me as what I had just said sounded holy, yet God’s response made me pause for a moment as I realized that God can’t do anything with just the word “blessed.” Yes, it sounds holy to say, and we say it all the time when someone sneezes, or as we say farewell to someone, “bless you” or “be blessed,” but it doesn’t give God anything to work with. His word teaches us that we have already been blessed and by just saying, “Bless them” or “bless you” or any variable of these words, gives God nothing to work with in order to truly bless them. “Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly [places] in Christ”. Eph 1:3

    I began to form a prayer from Ephesians 1 where Paul was praying that we may receive a spirit of wisdom and revelation with understanding of God’s nature.
    Eph 1:17-19 “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what [is] the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,”

    He once spoke to me in His authoritative voice early one morning while I was in prayer and slowly said, “My people limit Me,”! He used the voice like you heard used in the movie Ten Commandments.
    As you can imagine I didn’t move a muscle nor utter a word, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and I was on a crash course in the matter. If you want to see your world change, then speak the word of God over every situation that concerns you and watch God get involved in an awesome way. The prophet Daniel was told by the angel in Daniel 9, “I have come for your words.”

    God is waiting for you to open your mouth and proclaim His word over situations! Do it today and you will see God’s mighty right arm extend in the earth and things will change and they will change in a big way.

    I pray this gives you some wheels to run on and begin to grow in the dynamic use of God’s word to become a more effective Christian in your community and in the kingdom of God.

    In Christ Service
