A Vision of 39 Months

KATHY — I awoke early, feeling called to sit in His presence.  The evening prior I had a strange sense that the heavenlies were pregnant, ready to birth, ready to burst forth.  I felt a pressure, a fullness of time like something awesome was eminent.  I prayed in tongues not understanding what was stirring in me.  It was still before dawn, but in a vision I watched the sun rise.  On the horizon, the skies were heavy and low, not dreary or foreboding, rather pregnant with purpose and promise.  I realized God had bid me into His presence to agree and call forth that which was ready to birth!  As I prayed in the Spirit, I saw a bursting out, a sudden split in the heavenlies.  Powerful rays of light formed a corridor to earth and something awesome fell through it.  It impacted the earth in what looked like an explosion, an upside down mushroom that sent whirlwinds in every direction.  I was watching His will “being done” on earth as it is in heaven, as literally and as powerfully as something from the heavenlies colliding with this earthly realm.  I was in awe knowing I had just seen something coming to pass; yet I was aware the heavenlies were still pregnant and not yet fully delivered. (More to come in the next few says from Kathy’s “A Vision of 39 Months)

God and His Word Stand Forever

As the people of God assemble today, may they be taught, reminded, encouraged, assured that God’s Word is just like Him, “the same yesterday, today and forever”. May the people of God encourage one another to stand on His unfailing Word so that as the wind blows and the waves crash, the house will continue to stand. The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.” (Isa.40:8, NKJV)

Prayer and Prophecy

God told Abraham that Israel would be in Egypt for 400 years and then would come out (Gen 15:13-14). But the Word later tells us that God delivered His people when they cried out (Ex 2:23-24;3:7,9). Somebody got into agreement with God and then it happened.

The important key we learn here is that prayer must accompany prophecy all the way through the process. Isa 55:10-11 shows us that God’s Word goes through a cycle before it can return to Him. He does not allow it to return void. The example He gives in this context is the example of rain falling and bearing fruit before it is returned in the cycle of condensation and precipitation.  Our prayers are the dynamic in this cycle. Martin Luther said, “Prayer is not overcoming the reluctance of God. It is laying hold of his willingness.” Someone else said that nothing is done on earth but by prayer. We are not passive in the fulfillment of our prophecy.

Power of Accusation

MELISSA –This is where the power of accusation comes from: Proverbs 18:21 “Death
and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit
thereof.” Proverbs 11:9 “An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbor”
Prov. 15:4 (MSG) “Kind words heal and help; cutting words wound and maim.”
It is the epitome of “using your powers for good and not evil”. There is power in
our words because God intended it that way so we can make a difference when
we speak. The problem is that we tend to forget that it goes both ways. 

Faith Positions us to Receive

KATHY—I heard an inspiring example on a recording by Alan Vincent some time ago. He was scheduled to be in a meeting with some church leaders in northern India. When he got to the airport, he was told he did not have the proper papers and could not go to that region. He sat down to get in agreement with God’s perspective of the chaos. He realized all systems of the world belong to God and as God’s servant this airline would have to serve him and take him so he could obey the Boss. As he sat praying in that vein, the flight did not leave on time. It was delayed waiting for an important political figure. When the political entourage came rushing up to the desk, for no reason anyone could explain, the chief of the group turned to Alan and asked, “Sir, is there anything I can do for you?” Alan not only made the flight, he walked off the plane on the red carpet laid out for the political dignitaries! That kind of experience rearranges our thinking about circumstances. That kind of cyclonic chaos displaces frustration with faith! And faith positions us to receive.

An Unprecedented Number of People Will Receive

Holy Father is going to put upon numerous, hungry, sons/daughters an anointing that will be similar to what He put upon David Duplesis who saw thousands receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit in power. Be among the first of those who zealously volunteer. You will speak (to individuals as well as groups) of the power and the wonders of Holy Spirit and while you are speaking people will begin to manifest tongues and redemptive acts of the gifts of the Spirit. Not only will people accept Jesus in parking lots, stores, businesses and homes but in the same places, they will also be baptized with the Holy Spirit. Many have prophesied how many billion will be saved in an endgame move of God. But there will also be an unprecedented number of people who are baptized with the Holy Spirit beginning in 2023 and rolling on through the remainder of the decade.

Exciting Era

MELISSA — It really is an exciting time even though it may not look like it because we have entered a new era. Let’s look a little closer at what this means.  Merriam Webster defines “era” as: “a memorable or important date or event, especially one that begins a new period in the history of a person or thing, a stage in development.”  When I read this definition, that last part jumped off the screen, “a stage in development”.  So, I looked up “development“: “1. An unfolding; the discovering of something secret or withheld from the knowledge of others; 2. The unraveling of a plot.” Oh my! We have been in the midst of an “unraveling plot” our entire lives! I am basing the time span of the past era on the life of Dr. Billy Graham.  There were several words out there that the death of Dr. Graham would mark significant change, and that is when I knew we were truly in a new era.  So, for most of us we have been in this “stage of development” all of our lives.  God has been developing the Kingdom here on earth throughout the past era and we are about to see what He has been doing.

Power and Original Design of God

KATHY — As our days mirror the days of Elijah in so many details, may we be encouraged that we too will see the called of God follow the Lord’s directions and take down corrupt government and willful evil, both now and in generations to come.  And may we see the power and original design of God manifest in our homes and nations, both now and in generations to come.
