HYPE – Epidemic In Churches

This dream was given to me some time ago and now it’s time to bring it forward.

Date: 10/15/2012
Dream

hypeI listened to part of the pastor’s sermon and afterwards I walked up to him and said, “Some of what I heard was interesting.” He responded, “Wow that was deep! The Spirit was really moving!” I had not sensed any of that. It was all hype. Then, I said to the pastor, “When has your church been swept?” He said, “It’s been awhile.” As I walked through the crowd of people it was if they didn’t see me. They would walk right into my path and I had to step aside each time to let them pass by. I was hungry so I walked to the back of the building to the church’s cafeteria. I looked for a bowl but could not find one anywhere. I saw a man who had brought his bowl from home. No one else had a bowl. I thought to myself a person could starve to death in this place. This church has thousands of members but there’s nothing to eat here. They are hungry!

– End

Meaning

The pastor’s message had some interesting things in it but it didn’t provide any nourishment to the listener’s soul. In a spiritual sense our words are either anointed and edify or they are not anointed and drain life from the listener. The people in the church were hungry but there was no good food being served. The problem in this church’s message and many others is best explained by comparing it to the different food types. There are basically two categories of food; nutritional food and non-nutritional food. Nutritional food provide the body with nourishment, and contain low calories, low in fat and sugar, with high levels of protein, vitamins and minerals, which help us maintain a healthy robust life style.  Non-nutritional food, also known as junk foods, offer little nutritional value and are high in calories, fat, and sugars, and low in protein, vitamins and minerals. The preacher sermon fit into the junk food category. Read  http://seerofgod.com/sunday-morning-church-visit-part-one/

A bowl can represent a vessel, person; determination or resolve; form of truth. Since there wasn’t any food (truth) being served in the sermon there wasn’t a need to have bowls. The one man who had a bowl (truth) brought it from home for He had spent a lot of time with God sanctifying his own vessel. I asked the pastor when had his church been swept and his response was that it had been awhile. It had a lot of trash in it which everyone had got used to being in. Jesus came went into the temple and drove out the money changers and declared His house is a house of prayer.

“3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God…”1 Thes. 4:3-5

The pastor was the orator and the master of ceremony (MC) of hype. The preacher like to tell the people Holy Spirit was moving as he delivered his sermons. He preached good as he sought the congregations “Amen’s.” He raised his hand and said, “I am preaching better than you are amening!” His sermons had little or no nutritional spiritual value although it left the listeners feeling good (tickled their ears) the people were spiritually hungry. Good preaching doesn’t mean it’s an anointed. Jesus never used hype, so why is there so much of it spoken by ministers today?

Hype: to stimulate, excite, trick, hoopla, swindle, deceive

stop hype 2Where there is hype the anointing is absent. Where there is the anointing you won’t need hype. You can’t have both!

“Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough?” 1 Cor. 5:6

Hype is leaven! It isn’t acceptable to God no matter how you use it. Speakers sometimes use words to stimulate, excite, trick, swindle, deceive or create hoopla, which is hype. Does that sound like something Holy Spirit would be a part of? “But I’m just so excited about what Jesus is doing!” Then demonstrate your works by the power of the anointing. As John the Baptist said, “I must decrease and Christ must increase.”

Paul said. “for our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction; just as you know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.” 1 Thes. 1:5

In the dream I was invisible. I was seeing what was going on in the church by God. In past years, I was given dreams about this church and the common theme was always how phony it was. Much effort and money had gone into creating the big fake façade, both inside and out. However, God’s interest is in building up people in Jesus Christ by making them His disciples, not ours or to a religion.

Scientist recently discovered that fast foods (junk foods) are specifically designed to stimulate your appetite, so a person will eat more of it. The more you eat, the more you want. How many times have you heard someone say that they could eat the whole bag of chips by themselves?

Hype Alarm

Hype phrases fall down on the people like confetti upon the people after winning a world championship. They drop out of the air like the end of the Super Bowl game celebration. These phrases below are examples where the emphasis is for a person to join something rather than become something in Christ.

Examples of Hype Alert Phrases:

  • We’re family here.
  • You can get what we have anywhere else.
  • Be a part of something special.
  •  Be a part of something LIVE!
  • We have the best leadership up on this stage anywhere.
  • We’re here to serve you!
  •  Get involved, serve!
  •  Get connected!
  •  It’s life-changing here!

The Spirit of God revealed the spiritual state of the seven churches in Revelation 2 &3. Each church was found lacking in one area or the other. The message to the churches then was “You Have Forgot Your First Love.”  The message now is the same. “Have you have forgot your first love!” It’s time for all believers to bow before God and cry out to Him to purge, purify and refine us.

“Some of those who have insight will fall, in order to refine, purge and make them pure until the end time; because it is still to come at the appointed time.” Daniel 11:35

It’s about RELATIONSHIP with GOD! He is at the door KNOCKING! But will you open the door to Christ?

Message to the churches read Revelation 2 & 3



  • The Preparation of the Bride – The Epoch pt.1

    For many years, the Father has shared His secrets with me, which deal with the timing of end time events and shifts in the Spirit. When I say timing I am talking about epochs, which basically means time and season and appointed events in Bible prophecy.

    The BrideAt the end of a weekly prayer meeting on May 29, 2007, as I got up off my knees, I heard the Father say, “Thinning Out”. That’s it, two words but serious and very powerful words from the Father.  I knew that the church must  be purged of those who are discontent, disgruntled and those who were there for the wrong reasons. Indeed this word has played out over the course of two years; we have witnessed many leave the church from the local body, the nation as well as international ministries. Many walked out of their local churches in rebellion, disgruntled and disillusioned while others were exposed in public as a national disgrace. However, I want to show you that the season, the time, the epoch has changed as Christ’s return approaches closer. Christ wants you to know it is time to make yourself ready! Scripture Ref. 1 Peter 4:17 “For {it is} time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if {it} {begins} with us first, what {will be} the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?”

    “Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready”. Rev. 19:7

    On May, 31, 2007 my wife and I watched our favorite TV program, we liked to watch this particular program for our fun-time together.  I heard the Father say, “After this, the preparation of the bride begins”.  The “after this” was two words I heard during the prayer meeting the two nights prior where the Father said, “Thinning out”.

    After the “thinning out” the preparation of the bride begins.

    On July 15, 2009 in the night the Father showed me a vision of a card and written on the card were three words, “Prepare My Bride!”  Then I awoke and began laying this new assignment at His feet.  I recognized these words represent a major shift in the Spirit and the plan of God.  I told Him, “I don’t know how nor do I know who the bride is or what condition is she in. Father, show me the bride and give me the anointing required to fulfill this commission!” Please note that in the natural it is impossible to fulfill a God-given assignment in our own ability or strength. We must rely on His anointing to accomplish His will.  I believe we will begin to see people coming back to the body of Christ, people you would thought would never be serving God, but they will! They’re part of the bride. You’ll see great signs, wonders and miracles happening to those who come unto Him in the days ahead!

    The next night the Father began to give me a series of dreams about the bride.

    Dream #1: The Bride Is Missing People

    bride On July 16, 2009, in a dream, I was asked to build a nursery in a church. I put together what I could find from what supplies were available, but there just wasn’t enough material to work with or enough people to help.  I called in a man I knew was knowledgeable in building things and has wisdom to get advice on what I needed to complete the nursery project. He said that I needed more support here and then pointed to another area and said it was missing pieces and it would take more people to make it happen but I had a good start.

     [The dream’s meaning showed me the bride is missing people who belong in the bride but are not properly aligned in the will of God. We need them to make the bride complete. The man in the dream is a man I know who isn’t currently involved in church or with his family, he is addicted to alcohol. The man represents all those who are out of God’s will thus “dis-appointed”. They belong in the bride but have never found their place in God’s will] See Millions Will Perish

    Dream #2: The Bride Is International

    July 16, 2009 many people were at a company dressed up as soldiers from all over the world, there were Russians, Germans, East block, etc. It was very colorful and amazing to see all the nations represented. Although we all come from different corners of the globe we had one thing in common, we were all soldiers.

    [The dreams meaning is that the bride will be made up of people from all nations around the world]. Scripture ref. Matthew 24:31 “And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.”

    Dream #3: Corporate Authority

    On July 16, 2009 I was given another dream where I worked for a very large corporate company.  One employee was having trouble so I approached the company leadership on his behalf discussing his problem in an effort to get him help. The man in leadership, which was less than merciful, told me I couldn’t discuss matters like this with leadership ever again.  I said, “I can and I will!” Then a man got hurt on a fire hose near an escalator and needed 911 services, but when I went to leadership they didn’t care to help. They just left it to the employees to get the man help and we did.

    [Meaning: Much of the current leadership in the established church is self-serving and they put their welfare before the congregations’ welfare. They feel the congregation is there to serve them rather than them serving the people. Most church leadership doesn’t want to discuss real issues with the church members nor do they want to hear how they are missing it. They often order people to be silent in these matters. The encouraging thing in the dream is that the body worked it out without leadership’s heavy hand.  This is the mold for the bride. The bride will discover that this is the way the early church handled matters. They weren’t encumbered by self-serving leadership and grew close and tight together as a unit. They experienced “ekklesia”, the real church for themselves and so will the bride of Christ.] Scripture Ref. 1 Peter 2:17 “Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.”, John 13:34-35 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” Romans 12:10 {Be} devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor, Romans 13:8 Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled {the} law.  For Leaders:  Hebrew 13:7 “Obey your leaders and submit {to them,} for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you.”

    Dream #3:  Scene 2 The Bride Freed From Addiction

    In a secret office, in the back right corner, people were being anointed to minister deliverance from alcohol, drugs and all manner of addictions. As he pleaded with the officers to let him go, an addicted man said, “This is going to ruin my career!”

    [God is anointing people to minister to addicts of all kinds, to minister deliverance to them so that they can step into their place in the bride of Christ. So many people are “dis-appointed” from the bride due to addiction. God will deliver them from this horrible lifestyle! Wait and see!]

    Dream #4: Grand Central Station

    foreign spiritJuly 17, 2009 – I found myself sitting in Grand Central Station and it was empty! This startled me because it is one of the busiest locations in New York City. I asked the Father where are all the people and I heard Him say, “There’s no one here, but they’re coming”. There was a large steam locomotive standing beside the bench I was sitting on and it was fake. It had a frame that held up the shape of a locomotive but it was just there for show, it couldn’t do anything. I looked around for a wrench and began losing some bolts to take this fake equipment down. I turned to a man who was coming by and I said, “Why don’t you take this locomotive because you can use it in your business.”  I heard a sound and looked far down to the other end of the building where a man in a golf cart was speeding my way. I thought to myself “Uh oh”.  The man had seen me taking down the display, and as he pulled up by me with screeching tires, A man dressed in an Air Force uniform. He looked at me and said, “If you need anything just call us!”

    [Meaning: The bride isn’t assembled yet but it is time for her to come together. The fake things must be removed before the real can be revealed. My assignment is to help remove the fake, false doctrine that prevents people from seeing the urgency to make themselves ready.  The Air Force man…well that’s pretty clear at to its meaning…If I need anything I can just ask the Father and He will send me help in a big way. Jesus said that he could call upon 12 legions to rescue him if he desired.]  See Preparation of the Bride Pt. 2

    Dream #5 – The Condition of the Bride

    July 17, 2009 – With her back to me, I saw my wife raise her blouse up in a motion that exposed her breasts as she began running up a dirt ramp. I watched in wonder as to why she would possibly be doing this. She kept climbing up the ramp and at the top there was a rusty colored tanker ship. She jumped spread eagle and stuck her breasts and entire body up tight against the ship in a very provocative manner.

    [Meaning – The bride is committing adultery and fornication with foreign spirits. Most tankers are foreign and ships can represent spirits. My wife represents the bride in this dream. The bride currently is exposing herself and committing adultery to foreign spirits. Please examine every area in your life to see if you are intimate with things that aren’t of God. If so, say what God says about them and turn from them immediately and God will restore you. ] Scripture Ref. 1 Cor. 6:15-16 “Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May it never be! Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body {with her?} For He says, “THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.” See Vision of the Three Legged Donkey

    Scripture Ref. 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.

    This is first of a multiple part series. I pray you have been by reading this blog.

  • Elisha Followed Elijah to Capture His Anointing

    “So he departed from there and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, while he was plowing with twelve pairs {of oxen} before him, and he with the twelfth. And Elijah passed over to him and threw his mantle on him. He left the oxen and ran after Elijah and said, “Please let me kiss my father and my mother, then I will follow you.” And he said to him, “Go back again, for what have I done to you?” So he returned from following him, and took the pair of oxen and sacrificed them and boiled their flesh with the implements of the oxen, and gave {it} to the people and they ate. Then he arose and followed Elijah and ministered to him.” 1 Ki. 19:19-21.

    fieldElisha demonstrated his desire to go forth and carry that mantle, so he went and slaughtered his oxen, broke up his plow, made a fire and offered up his oxen to the Lord as a sacrifice.  The sacrifice he was making was more than just burning the oxen and the plow! That oxen and plow were his way of making a living, it was his way to feeding himself and his family. It was his job and his identity and Elisha demonstrated that he was willing to give it all up to follow Elijah the man of God, in order to take hold of the mantel and capture his anointing.  Elisha was going to follow Elijah because he trusted God to take care of him even if it meant losing his source of income and leaving his home behind.

    Here is what Holy Spirit revealed to me today. I did the same thing when an angel appeared to me in a dream in June of 2005. 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 walking along to my left.  I was staring at the blazer the angel was carrying knowing it represented a mantel and realized, the only way to take hold of the mantel was to be obedient to the call of God, to quit my job and to follow Him.

    My wife and I have done just as Elisha did. Elisha took the pair of oxen, sacrificed them, boiled their flesh with the implements of the plow, and fed the meat to the people. The he arose and followed Elijah and ministered to him. My wife and I have let go of our livelihood by sacrificing our jobs and careers, our income, our identity, our home, our friends, our church and our city to follow the call of God.  It sounds easy when we read about Elisha doing this, but try putting yourself in his sandals for a minute. When you’ve been established in a career for a number of years, you’re salary far exceeds your needs, you live in a beautiful home, have new cars, nice clothes and then one day you’re told by God to give it all up and follow God into the unknown, what then?!

    And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.” Mat. 8:34-35

    The disciples gave up their livelihood to follow Jesus. Peter gave up his fishing business, Matthew his tax collector position and they questioned Jesus.  “Peter began to say to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You.” Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake, but that he will receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life.” Mat. 10:28-30

    Several years ago, we did as Elisha, we sacrificed our livelihood upon the Holy altar of God saying, “We desire the things of God more than the things of this world and we trust You to take care of us!” That makes me all the more certain that God will provide for us because we are willing to follow Him and His plan for our lives.

    My wife and I both sensed in the Spirit that a “move” was coming. We had entries in our journals and God was showing us the location we would move and the house we would live in long before the word came for us to actually quit our jobs and to follow Him. My wife saw the move coming before I did but she ask God to show me as well, which is wisdom. She patiently waited for God to reveal the plan to me without hinting or saying a word about her revelation. She trusted God to show me as well then we would both be on the same page. This is vital for a successful move in God’s plan.

    elijahI began seeing in the first of the year in 2003 but didn’t get the release from God to quit my job until June of the same year when the angel came in the dream. We were also in close consultation with the Pastors of the church in the city were we knew God was appointing us live and to attend church. God had led them through a similar move years prior to ours. They would caution us by saying, “Just be certain that you have heard God.”  When, and only when we knew beyond any doubt, did we resign from our positions and move.

    If you’re going to yoke up with a minister of God you will follow in the same footsteps that they have walked in if you’re going to capture their anointing. Elisha followed Elijah to Gilgal (a wheel rolling), Bethel (house of God) and to Jericho (its moon, Jericho is a very fertile land). I like the symbolism of the three destinations Elisha followed Elijah to. When you put the meaning of the three names together, it says that Elijah and Elisha we’re rolling along to the house of God which is in a fertile land that shines like the moon.

    I can’t stress enough that you have to know for certain, beyond any doubt, that you’ve heard God before sacrificing your livelihood, or you could end up with nothing.  All you will have accomplished is getting rid of your income, your possessions, your witness and quite possibly leading to anger with God because your expectations weren’t met. If you give away your things without God specifically telling you to, all you end up with is nothing and there’s no reward for that. Don’t be foolish with the things God has provided for you.

    God doesn’t ask everyone to quit their jobs and move to the unknown. Often when someone gets saved, the first thing they want to do is quit their job and become a witness to the world. How about becoming a witness for God where you are currently before going out into the world? God requires us to follow Him with our hearts and to take up our cross daily where we are presently appointed regardless of what He has in His plan for our lives and futures.

    You can’t think God told you to move, you have to know He told you to move and have multiple confirmations if necessary. It is a very Holy thing to God and if you take it lightly you will surely be in for a let down. Knowing God had directed you to move doesn’t mean it will be easy. In fact, to follow God where He leads you is a very difficult thing to do. Be certain that to take this step, it will be filled of trials, unknowns and darkness.  Fear will tear away at your faith, so that is why you must know without question that God has told you to move. The verse below says because I have heard what you said it illuminates my walk and lights up my path in the darkness of the unknown. God allows you only to see so far and no more at anyone time.

    Thy word (speech, word, speaking)[is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105

    And I close with this…Know that if God is in it with you then you’re anointed to perform what He has required you to do. Stand in your faith, don’t waver, no matter how hard the times are, or how long they last, for with God all things come in seasons. You will get you life back…eventually!

    Hear God!!!!!

  • 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. Read http://seerofgod.com/archives/873 , http://seerofgod.com/archives/713 http://seerofgod.com/archives/1062

    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.



  • 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



  • Fall On Me (Angelic Visitation)

    policemanIn the night of January 27, 2008, during the fourth watch (3:00 AM -6:00 AM), I was awakened by the presence of an angel standing at the foot of the bed. I rose up and said, “Lord open my eyes to see” and then I saw the angel with my spiritual eyes. He was dressed in dark blue police uniform. I waited for a few moments and sensed that there was nothing required of me at that moment and went back to sleep.

    Our daughter, Wendy was dropped off at our house by her husband that same morning. We asked her when we needed to give her a ride to work and she said she was going to hang around for a while. Wendy is a great employee and really loves her job so this struck me as very odd for her.

    I went upstairs to pray for wisdom and thought about the angelic visitor, which came to me early that morning. I asked the Father, “What does a policeman angel come to do? “ He said, “Arrest!” Then He gave me the song, “Fall On Me” performed by the “Shekinah Glory Ministry”. It had to be that song performed by that choir. I knew I had to find this CD immediately and play it. I grabbed it and ran downstairs and as I breezed past Wendy I said, “All I know is that I’ve got to play “Fall On Me” and I’ve got to play it now“!

    As the music began to play and the words came forth:
    Fall on meFall on me Let your manifested glory fall on me…
    The holy presence of God began to fall on me. I now was in the arms of the “policeman angel” right there in the den. I was being arrested by an angel sent by God, while I bowed at the sofa.

    The spirit of travail fell on me and I began to go into levels of travail I didn’t know existed. I felt a powerful squeezing sensation all over my body, but mostly on my head. I was in a head lock by an angel of God, an arresting angel.

    As the songs on the CD played one by one and the intensity of the music would rise and fall, the intensity of the travail followed. At the end of the tenth song the spirit of travail lifted. When I rose up ad looked for Wendy, I saw her laying in tears on the kitchen floor. She had been overcome by the His presence and power also.

    Young Choir Members SingingI believe the spirit of travail is one of the most holy things of God and so powerful when He moves on the human spirit man to intercede on behalf of a soul in need. As the words in the song say, “Some soul is depending on you Lord”, “Someone one is looking to mend a broken heart”, “Someone is lonely and they need you to comfort them”, “Someone’s lost and they need your guidance”.

    As soon as the spirit of travail came it lifted after the tenth song finished on the CD titled “Holy of Holies”. The glorious manifestation lasted about fifty minutes.

    My dear saints of God, may we never forget what a compassionate God we serve. My prayer is that we all come to the knowledge of Him. Will you we seek to know who He is, His nature, and His character and to know the depths of His love beyond all understanding?

    Bro. Bill

    What glorious words written by Deacon Anthony & Rose Harper and recorded by Shekinah Glory Ministry:

    As we enter Lord, to worship
    And we get on one accord

    everything we need and more
    your manifested glory
    it is wonderful to see
    I seek your face
    here in this place
    oh come…let, it, fall…on me…
    Lord, Lord, Lord, come on, Lord, come on
    Some soul, is depending on you Lord Oh yes it is
    Someone is looking, to mend, a broken heart yes they are
    Someone’s lonely and they need you, to comfort them to comfort them,
    Someone’s lost and they need your guidance Oh Lord, come on down,
    Let your Holy Ghost, let your anointing,
    Let your Shekinah Glory, let it fall down On me,
    On me, On me, On me…
    Let it fall down
    Lord let it fall down
    I need you Lord to let your spirit fall down On me…
