We Must Return To Christ!

Journal Entry: Dumitru Duduman
Date: 8-10-2010

I heard in the Spirit a quick burst of rapid yet light knocking on the front door waking me up this morning at 4:49 am. I have experienced this numerous times over the course of the past seven years in the home we currently reside. I listened in the natural to make sure no one was actually knocking on the door and there was no one there. I closed my eyes and went back to sleep.  

Later I saw in the Spirit the man Dumitru Duduman; As I stood in a long hallway or tunnel, He came walking up to me. The tunnel was filled with very soft, white morning light. When Dumitru got closer to me, I recognized him as a much younger man than the pictures I’ve seen later during his life. (Dumitru passed away May 5, 1997) Again, I  was awake asking the Lord to show me what this is about, I closed my eyes and went back to sleep.  

Sometime afterwards, I heard in the Spirit a loud, “Ga-gong”, which awakened me. Now, the morning light was actually coming in the windows signaling the beginning of a new day but all that was on my mind was to seek the Lord to find out what was this about.

-End Journal Entry-

During my morning quiet time, while praying for Lord to reveal the meaning of these three events, I was led to a book I refer to at times, “The Comprehensive Hebrew Calendar” by Arthur Spier. What I discovered is that today is a new moon and the beginning of the month of Elul. Elul is the last month of the year (5770) in the Hebrew calendar and is the agriculture month of processing grapes, figs and olives in the agricultural cycle.

Elul (very brief explanation)

Elul in Jewish understanding is the key to unlocking the inner and most potent meaning of the heart. Elul is made up of the Hebrew letters aleph, lamed, vav and lamed are an acronym for the phrase from the Songs of Songs: Ani L’dodi V’dodi Li, which means, “I am to my beloved and my beloved is to me.”

tunnelThis phrase symbolizes the bride and groom, husband and wife or our personal life with Christ. In the Zophar (Jewish commentaries) Elul we are “back to back” in relationship with God and by the end of Elul we are “face to face” with God. It’s a month of a complete turning around of our lives back to God if we choose to do so.

This doesn’t mean that in Elul God is more easily reached because He is there always. Beautifully, Elul is about letting go of hurt, anger, unresolved arguments, disappointment, abandonment or whatever root of pain we may have and return to God with all sincerity. Elul is a time for breaking out of boundaries by turning our soul back to an inner intimate walk with God.

What does seeing the vision of a younger Dumitru Duduman mean? 

In Dumitru’s first recorded spiritual encounter in America, he clearly states he was wide awake when it was given to him in 1984. It is titled “America Will Burn” and it is the first of many he received until his passing May 5, 1997.

An angel showed up and transported him to California, Las Vegas, the state of New York and all of Florida and then said, “This is Sodom and Gomorrah! In one day it will burn.” The angel took him back home and said, “All of this I have shown you – In one day it will burn.”

I strongly believe the Lord showed me a much younger Dumitru to point me to his first spiritual encounter in America where he was given a revelatory experience to warn America what is coming if it does not repent and turn back to God. The Lord wants to warn this nation and the church yet again.

The Lord of Lords is calling out to His people to return to Him and become His bride. The only way to escape the judgments coming upon this nation and world is to fully abide in Christ. He will protect His bride. Those who live a holy life will be saved, only those whose names are written in the Book of Life will be saved. The mountain is Christ and by Him you are saved, stand on the mountain above the judgments which are to come.

Please read the entire text to appreciate the warning given to America in 1984 and once again being signaled to this nation.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

    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…



  • An Angel Came in the Window Today

    Jupiter and IoOn numerous occasions through out the years, I have received major revelations in the mysteries and secrets of God during a certain planetary alignment in regards to the end-times. I first recognized this when I reviewed my journals and compared the dates to the celestial alignments at the time that I received revelation and noticed that Venus & Mercury were in conjunction during these times. During these events I also noticed an increase in angelic visitations, dreams and visions. However, angelic activity isn’t limited to only this celestial event in any way. (Conjunction means when two celestial bodies appear near one another in the sky.)

    Angelic Visitation Today:
    On Wednesday 3/19/08 at 4:20 PM, I was sitting in my quiet-time chair with my kitty in my lap, suddenly the vertical blinds in the window behind my head began to spread open and close.
    The blinds moved as the wings of the angel flapped. This occurred 4-5 times and needless to say, it got my attention.Jae, my wife, came downstairs a few minutes later and sat in the chair to my right. I told her that an angel had just come in the house through the window behind my head. Our cat moved to a new vantage point on the top of the love seat, staring at the blinds for a longest of time as we just sat still in the presence of holiness. Jae began to weep and felt the angel pass over and through her body as it moved deeper into the house. Then our cat hopped down and cautiously crawled into the window to snoop around behind the blinds to see what caused this strange activity.

    Many times over the years our cat would walk into our bedroom at night as the boards under her feet creaked. The first time I heard this the kitty was only 6 months old, weighing about 7 pounds. I’ve walked on the same areas of the floor that the cat does and I can’t make the boards creak, even to this day. Perhaps I discuss this subject in more detail in another blog some day soon.Note: I’m writing this blog at 12:30 AM and an angel just came down the hall and apparently its left wing bumped into the sliding folding door in the den entrance. Immediately I sensed an extreme holy presence come upon me. I said out loud, “Uh Oh!”

    A very strong anointing settled on my head and the back of my head began to throb. It seemed like the blood vessels in my head and neck were as big as my fist. I reached back to feel my head to see if it was bulging out and there wasn’t grotesque shapes going on.

    12:40 AM – I few minutes later I went and reclined in my quiet-time chair and began seeking the presence of the Lord again. An angel came up to me and put what felt like a blanket of holiness over me. As I began praise the Lord by saying “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord”. Then I heard a tapping sound on the wall on the opposite side of the room.

    As I praised God it would continue…tap, tap, tap and when I stop praising, the tapping stopped. I started praising again and the tapping started up just like before. It sounded like it was coming from the outside of the house to the inside. After awhile I then retired to bed and slept like a baby all night.

    Major prophets have prophesied that this year the body of Christ will witness an increase of angelic activity like they have never known before.

    Man First Heard Faith in the Constellations

    In Gen:1:14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;

    Seasons is the Hebrew word: mow`ed which means “appointed place, appointed time, meeting” I don’t want to fill your head with allot of celestial jargon here in this blog, but I do want you to stretch your thinking a bit to take hold of some Biblical truth. Now before we move into the meaning of the current alignment I want to show you one more series of verses so you will be open to what I’m saying.

    Rom. 10:17-18 So faith {comes} from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. v18 But I say, surely they have never heard, have they? Indeed they have; “THEIR VOICE HAS GONE OUT INTO ALL THE EARTH, AND THEIR WORDS TO THE ENDS OF THE WORLD.”

    Their voice in verse 18 is the heavens as given in Psalms 19:1-4: The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their utterances to the end of the world. In them He has placed a tent for the sun.

    See the gospel preached below in the planets

    Mercury Venus Occult 3/19-24/08

    Mercury: Coming and coming again(traveler)or coming and returning (Mercury, the consoling prospect that He should return with intensified luster) (Think ascending & descending as in angels)

    Venus: Like those, an emblem of the Church of the faithful under all dispensations, The star of beauty, As above all others splendid (Venus, the beauty of His sister-spouse (Song 4:9,10) the Church)

    Aquarius: The pouring forth of spiritual blessings.

    Summary: Basically, the celestial alignment means that Mercury represents angelic (Gabriel) activity and Venus represents the church (ekklesia), and in the constellation Aquarius is the “pouring forth”. Boil it down we are going to see the out pouring of gifts to the church marked by an increase angelic activity.
    It’s kind of hard to see in the picture below but if you look right where the spout of water is being poured out in Aquarius you can vaguely make out the two planets in occult. I tried everything I know to do with graphics and still couldn’t get a better picture.


  • When God Fills the Well

     

    I can’t help myself, I believe my God to be an extreme God! I believe He is a God who wants to manifest Himself to His children in an intimate and glorious relationship.

    I want to share some supernatural manifestations of God we have experienced while living at Durham. Durham is what we call our house due to its location in our town. When God directed us to move from the Dallas area in 2003, we bought my wife’s childhood home and moved into it October 3, 2003
    We left behind our home, church, income, friends and a lifestyle in the Dallas area we had flourished in for many years. Upon arriving and inspecting this house, we found it to be in shambles from years of neglect, we could do nothing but cry and feel sorry for ourselves. We sometimes think of the first night we spent in the house, it had 7 window panes broken out, un-level floors, and a bathroom that we hated to use.

    As we sat there in a small upstairs bedroom on a Saturday night, we couldn’t help but stare at the pitiful condition of the room. The people who had rented the house before us bought it had allowed their kids to paint the room in an awful green and blue.

    We were sitting side by side in two lawn chairs, with our feet propped up on a milk crate and a 5 gallon bucket, staring at the wall. We couldn’t help but think of what we had left back in Egypt. We had all but fallen off the edge of the earth, only our pastors, and family had a clue what we were going through. I knew then, in order to survive in the wilderness, we would have to go to extreme levels of faith.

    In my quiet time one morning, Holy Spirit showed me that when Abraham left the familiar land to go fulfill God’s plan, he must first dig a well in each new place he journeyed. Abraham understood that without a reliable source of water, it would be impossible to survive in the harsh land. (Gen. 21:30).
    In desperation, I pressed into God and imagined as I prayed to Him that I was digging a well each time I prayed in my secret place. Day after day I would visualize digging a well with every confession and profession of faith.

    As with any well being dug, you must dig and dig, not knowing when or if you’re going to strike water. I continued to petition God to give us a well in which to drink, just as He gave unto Abraham. Abraham said in Genesis 21:30, “You shall take these seven ewe lambs from my hand so that it may be a witness to me, that I dug this well.”

    The Well Filled Overnight
    One morning, in November of 2003, when I walked down the stairs, I walked into the tangible presence of God. It filled the lower story of our one-hundred year old house. I called to my wife Jae, who was still upstairs, and said, “You had better get down here; the presence of God has filled this place!” She came down and joined me in the living room and we just set there in the heavenly presence of God, soaking in this glorious manifestation. I had felt this presence before on several occasions, but this time it was in our home, from our feet to above our heads, over flowing, flooding our entire being was His glorious presence. This holy manifestation remained for an hour or more and then it lifted.

    A few months later, when I came downstairs in the early morning for quiet time, I opened the door to the living room and again, felt the tangible presence of God, yet even stronger than the time before. It was holy, it was electric, it was heavenly and my body tingled in the glorious presence of God.  Read Portals of Heaven, Ancient Gates

    I sat down in my “quiet time” chair and suddenly I felt an intense, powerful sword, slowly being pushed down into me, from the top of my head down into my abdomen. As it moved downward through my body I could feel every centimeter of its travel. My body shook as I was compressed under this extreme, penetrating power of God, I could do nothing but surrender to what God was doing in me.

    I can’t tell you how long this manifestation lasted but when my wife, Jae came downstairs from her quiet time that morning, the anointing rested upon me and it still lingered in the room. When I laid my left hand on her forehead, she could feel the anointing flow over her head as well. Truly, I had just experienced a divine encounter at the well.

    A Well Is a Place of Divine Appointment
    In Genesis, chapter 24, Rebekah’s destiny was at the well, she had gone there many times but on this particular day, her life changed forever for she was about to meet her Isaac.

    Blue Water Swirling in a WhirlpoolIn John 4: 6-7 “Now, Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with [his] journey, sat thus on the well: [and] it was about the sixth hour. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.” The Samaritan woman’s life was about to change forever. God doesn’t manifest Himself to us just to give us a thrill but to change us eternally. The effects of our change can impact our family, our city, our region and our nation.

    How many divine encounters have we missed due to our busy undisciplined lives in which we don’t come to the well or when we do come, we don’t allow time to sit and wait for Him at His well?

    In John 7:27 “Now on the last day, the great {day} of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.”

    God will meet you at the well. Come to His well and come often for you never know which day He will be waiting for you there. Come, Come to His well!

  • Wise Men Still Travel To See Him

    Young Couple at Beach at DuskOne thing I have learned is that getting away from the familiar can stimulate your hearing of what the Spirit of God is saying. Sometimes when your driving and your flesh is occupied, your spirit man will hear God say things that you may not have be available for otherwise. And He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.” Mark 6:31
    My wife Jae and I like to get away for a time of prayer and relaxation at least once a year and this year we decided to travel to Moravian Falls, NC for our sabbatical. Each time we have gone on a trip to specifically seek God in an intimate way, we have experienced hearing His voice, many dreams, visions and supernatural events, and this trip had plenty. We only wished we had allowed ourselves more time for our divine get away.
    Moravian Falls is located in the heart of Wilkes County, North Carolina. The town derives its name from a 35-foot waterfall and also from the Moravian brothers who settled there in 1753.
    Moravian Falls is known to be an open portal or gate, which was established when the Moravian religious group held prayer on the mountain tops 24 hours a day for 100 years! Numerous ministries such as Rick Joyner, Gary Oates, Larry Randolph, Bob Jones and others all report that this is indeed a special place.

     

    From my journal – Feb. 22-24, 2008
    Journal Entry – 2/22/08
    Angelic Manifestation -I felt about 7 or 8 gentle puffs of air being blown in my right ear. As each puff of air entered my ear canal, my right ear drum would pop in sync with the puffs. I looked around and saw no one there blowing my ear. (That was comforting to know. Ears represent spiritual hearing. This manifestation is related to an opening of my right spiritual ear.)

    “I saw a massive army marching down a road, they were dressed like Roman guards during the time period Jesus walked on earth. They marched by me shoulder to shoulder, step for step, in a powerful moving synchronized force. I watched in awe as they marched past me with their shields, swords, spears and shiny helmets. As I looked to the front to see who the person in command was, I saw Jesus, dressed in a brilliant white robe, He walked like a man on a mission.

    In the next scene of the vision, I was also marching in the ranks of this great army. Together, we made a thunderous sound as every man marched in cadence. I looked as far ahead as I could and saw Jesus at the front, He was riding on a white horse as He was leading us over the rolling hills apparently into battle.”

    Journal entry 2/24/08 – I heard the Father say to me in the night, “There will be an increase of violence in the California prison system this year“. (Please join me in prayer to speak what God’s word says about the heathen’s rage against authority. There’s over a 177,000 prisoners in California)

    After returning home from our trip, I had four dreams which God gave me during the night that showed me our sabbatical was indeed fruitful and that we would never be the same again.

  • The Way of Escape

    trustIt is said that there are three kinds of Christians at any one time in the body of Christ, those who are about to enter into a trial, those in a trial and those who have just come out of a trial. Today, I fall into the last category of just coming out of a trial; Allow me to explain.
    About ten days ago I found my faith and my assignment being challenged by a demonic attack that appears to be sweeping across the body of Christ. This demonic assignment is to separate us away from our appointed assignment in the local body, it’s very much a spirit of abortion for the body of Christ. While under the influence of such an attack I found I couldn’t even put forth a word to describe this feeling.
    I laid my heart before God and called His remembrance to all His promises to the believer that are in His word. I would go for walks in the park declaring my faith before Him and keep my heart open before Him. I declared, “Father if there be anything in me that isn’t pleasing to you, show it to me that I may repent of it!”
    I prayed in the Spirit allot during the course of the week and I did all I knew to stand under such an attack. I heard Him say, “You have to trust me that I can keep you.”
    1 Cor. 10:12-13 says, “Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.”
    I asked the Father, “How did I get in this place? What did I do to end up here?” I cried out to God for mercy. I remember six years ago I felt as though the grace band around me had been lifted, I felt as I had never known God’s peace or forgiveness, all I could do was to trust Him and stand in faith that I was saved. Then three days later He called me into my secret place and restored me. He was so excited to be with Me again. This current trial lasted for five days, five long days! Then, as suddenly as it began, He restored me with an amazing exuberance and wonderful peace. It must be hard for such a loving God to hide from His children for so many days, but He does it to teach us to be steadfast in Him.
    When I woke up last Wednesday morning I knew this attack had lifted. I felt the joy of my salvation once again and I knew that I had endured something meant to take me out of His will for me. I am stronger today for it, so what happened?
    Early this morning God gave me a dream and in this dream one man on my right, which represented Holy Spirit, was talking to two men on my left. One was an older man and right beside him was a younger man which was his son. The man on the right said to the older man, “Remember when you couldn’t get a ‘threshold’ and it looked like all progress on the projects would be halted?” The older man said, “Yes, so I made my own.” This older man (Father) was a master carpenter as well as his son (Jesus), I wanted to talk with them but I kept quiet knowing my wisdom couldn’t possible add anything to the conversation.
    In this attack of the enemy I was eventually given a ‘threshold’ or a way of escape that the Father provided me. He said in 1 Cor. 10:13 that He would provide the way of escape also, so that I would be able to endure it.It’s the resistance that makes us strong, just like a body builder. The very thing that is resisting us, is what is causing us to become stronger and stronger.In my quiet time this morning I heard Him say, “You were in a battle and it was fierce, but you kept fighting with spiritual prayers. Then I provided a threshold where there was none before and you escaped the enemy’s attack. Didn’t I say I’d make a way of escape?” Well, there is a great example!
    To try and put words to how I feel today would be difficult so I will refer to this quote, which was made by someone that I don’t even know, but surely they have been where I have just returned.

    “There is a moment when the words inscribed on a page so precisely reflect the pursuit of human truth that the chasm between us and the Divine is bridged, and we are changed!”
