Getting Into Agreement With the Word

God’s Word in Heb 4:12 is not “penetrating to the dividing line of the soul and the spirit, and of joints and marrow, exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart” so that we can feel condemnation, but so we can get into agreement with the Word of His power. Getting into agreement with the Word is our living in such a way that the principles and values of the Word are evident in our lives. It will result in our living like we have a Lord and Savior.

Beyond Thus-Far Experiences

We are called to a lifestyle of confidence that God is in any given moment and His will and Government will prevail in that moment. The clear and present truth is that participation is going to go beyond our “THUS-FAR” experiences, both personal and public.   Our awareness is being heightened and groomed concerning anticipation because we are moving into a time of more frequent and more intense, Sovereignly-Scheduled-Intersections, already written, slotted, staged and set for the coming decade.  (Tenth excerpt from Kathy Gabler’s SEEC Magazine article “Sons Must Get It”.)


I See That

I see that! When we hear something or read something and say “I see that” are we “seeing” only in the sense of ocular recognition or mental consent or are we seeing in the sense of perception for the purpose of application? Are we simply stating that we can see a true fact or does it actually mean that we can see the value of that truth for our lives and are willing to act on it?  Prov.1:1-2 (21st CKJV) ”The [purpose of the] proverbs [is] to know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding.”  May we perceive God’s truth, embrace it and act on it. We are praying you discover daily that you are seeing and embracing God’s truths that lead to abundant life.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)


Anticipate Anticipation

God intends ANTICIPATION to be a tool for us as sons. We can anticipate anticipation increasing in days ahead because it is Father’s design for us to realize in advance and get a foretaste in order to participate.  (Ninth excerpt from Kathy Gabler’s SEEC Magazine article “Sons Must Get It”.)


May Freedom Continue to Ring

The song says,“America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea!” May each of us pray for the United States of America that God shed His grace on us and that its citizenry will humble themselves before God. May freedom continue to ring across the land and may people put their faith and trust in God Almighty and His Word. May righteousness and biblical truth prevail in the hearts and minds of this great nation that it rise above all opposition to the greatness intended by our Lord.  (Ps.33:12, NKJV) ”Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…”  We are praying you discover daily that you are joined with others in faith for the righteousness of our nation.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day. www.txpraise.com)

Anticipation Lifestyle

Anticipation of the Power of the Kingdom is to be our lifestyle, a lifestyle of confidence that God is in any given moment and His will and Government will prevail in that moment, and we are most certainly His heirs, His agents to legislate the moment and see that it does.  — Kathy Gabler


Edifying and Manifesting

As the people of God assemble today, may they report to one another and encourage one another with dreams, visions and prophetic confirmations that inspire each one to move forward in faith and hope to the horizons Almighty God has as He manifests His sons/daughters as salve and solution to the groaning of creation.  (1Thess.5:11, NKJV) ”Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.”

Shrouded Mysteries Missing the Point

Over the past few decades some preachers have competed with one another concerning who knows most accurately what will happen when, and how many will be there when it happens and who will be left out because of whatever reasons. Building great mystery and drama around the whole subject has enabled some speakers to collect large followings of loyal supporters (and book sales). When I see scriptural prophecy being fulfilled, that is just another testimony to me that God does not speak without purpose and that He has the ability to fulfill his Word. If the sacrifice of Jesus at Calvary and His compassionate, fellowshipping Spirit cannot instill in people a fervor for Him and compassion to live redemptively for others, a theology shrouded in puzzle-like mystery and culminating chaos most likely will not.

The Impact of Small Things

While intercessors should not sweat the small things, neither should we ignore them.  The Word tells us to consider the impact of small things like the small rudder that directs a huge ship.  Again in Zech 4:10, we are admonished not to despise small beginnings because their impact will be big in future.  Many times intercessory dreams and visions and impressions seem faint or small, yet they actually carry insights that prove crucial or huge down the road.

Keep The Air Cleared

Now, what is our part in this next season? Awareness. We must remember, at all times: the Kingdom of God is invading this nation. Each one of us has a piece of the Kingdom that penetrates and affects the region around us. We are going to WIN this fight. Hey, it’s not going to be pretty in the months ahead, but no matter what you see, hear, or face, it has no effect on what God has set in motion. After all, He has the last word! If you feel worried, afraid, or uneasy that’s your clue you are plugged into the wrong advisors. You may need to turn the TV off during this season in order to stay plugged into God’s agenda. Make sure you keep the air cleared in your vicinity. One great way of doing that is upping your prayer in tongues. Talk about an air purifier! Speaking in tongues is a beautiful weapon from Heaven for such a time as this. –Melissa

Strategic Dreams

I have been amazed lately at the strategic dreams God has given.   I have sensed for several months that the Body of Christ is in an important time of transition.  These dreams have been confirmation of coming changes and new positioning of our lives for the purposes of God.  I consider strategic dreams to be those timely telegrams that confirm direction or give instruction or release insight and understanding about our lives and circumstances or even reveal an answer to prayer.—Kathy Gabler (KATHY is speaking at DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY 2017  Sept.22-24 at Grace Int.

Occupy UNTIL

In recent days preachers, e-mailers and ministry newsletters have been proclaiming the near end of all things — that there is no more to come. One of the first signs of agreement is that some people even stop paying tithes and some missionaries have had to leave their posts of duty because certain sentiment dictates withdrawal of support. While certain sentiment has been the cause of withdrawing financial enablement, fear over unknown economic fallout of current events has also been a factor. One preacher spoke to a conference of leaders and proclaimed our need to prepare the next generation and our need to pour ourselves into that generation. The speaker that followed him got up and proclaimed that its all over with, we’re out of here and we each need to be ready to meet our Maker. The latter speaker received more response. There is a sudden rise in concern to see that everyone is ready to meet Jesus and that is, indeed, important. Yet it cannot be simplistically important at the expense of all else. People are not to be simply prepared to miss hell but to become a productive part of the Kingdom of God and a lively member fitly joined (in rank and order) to the Body of Christ (Eph 4:16). Jesus left us with the mandate of “occupying until” He returns (Lk 19:13). Strong tells us that “occupy” means to “busy oneself with”, “to trade”. Thayer says that “occupy” means “to carry on a business”. There is plenty of Father’s business yet to be done and when our Lord does return, He should find us slap dab in the middle of doing it with all the strength, passion and resources that we can muster to do it with.

Following Signs or Signs Following

News services are using their valuable air time and print space reporting on Christians declaring the end of the world. Christians have said time and time again throughout my lifetime that no generation has seen things worse than they are now, and it is now the end of the world and the coming of the Lord. They have looked up into the sky and sought all manner of natural signs to confirm their suspicions (Gal.4:10). Yet, I find it interesting that not one time have I heard anyone say that no generation of Christians has ever been more like Jesus than this generation (even after all these years and all these centuries of church attendance and observing the stars and dispensational charts). Amos has a great suggestion: “SEEK HIM that maketh the seven stars and Orion… THE LORD IS HIS NAME:” (Amos 5:8) Could it be that Amos would rather have us take valuable time and effort we are using to seek signs and actually use it to SEEK The LORD?

Apostle Paul’s great concern was not to get Christians off the planet but to, somehow, labor and strive until they were conformed to the image of Christ (Gal.4:19).  Hopefully there will come a time when we become weary with following signs and we turn around and look behind us to see if there are any signs following us. (Mark 16:17) “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;”  It’s not time for the end. It’s time for the sons of God to be manifest (have signs follow them) as the answer to the groaning of creation (Rom.8:19,22). Then maybe news services will have something really worthwhile to report about what Christians are saying AND doing.

Dreaming and Instruction

As the people of God assemble today, may they hear what they need to hear from their Lord and Savior for victory in all aspects of their life in the coming week. May they, throughout the week, know that they are under the eye and care of God Almighty so that they dream the dreams that are instruction from the Lord. (Job 33:15-16) “In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; 16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,”  (DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY 2017  Sept.22-24)


God Equips Us For The Weapon

While thinking about recent events I had to deal with, the scripture Isaiah 54:17 “no weapon formed against you will prosper” came up again. This time, however, I saw it differently. I think a lot of times this is used as a defensive scripture when really it is an offensive scripture! God equips us for the weapon BEFORE, not after, it is formed against us. The reason the weapon doesn’t prosper is because He already set countermeasures in place prior to its launch. He already equipped you with everything necessary to walk out of this battle in tact. That, my friends, is an offensive scripture loaded for battle! —Melissa Gabler (Melissa will be speaking on “Prophetic Lifestyle” at DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY 2017 Sept.22-24)

Strategic Dreams

A friend called with a strategic dream that was an answer to her prayer. She has been in a on-going trial at work and is weary of the situation. She asked God if she could leave the situation. In her dream she was a nurse in an emergency room and she was tending to three patients. A doctor walked in and she was relieved to see him because she knew he was a trustworthy doctor. He told her to go get something and she was walking quickly down a long hall. A door opened in the hall and a lady walked out. In the dream she realized it was angel. The angel beckoned her to come with her. But she knew the care for the three patients must be finished first, so she asked the angel if she could check with her tomorrow. The angel answered yes and walked back through a door which disappeared as it closed.
The trustworthy doctor was the Great Physician coming on the scene to intervene. That is why she knew Him and was so glad to see Him. Often, as in this case, a hall represents transition or moving from one place to another, one opportunity to another. She was encouraged to realize that He had given her instructions to enter a transition time, and allowed her to glimpse a new door, an opportunity divinely provided. Her sense of integrity kept her there to finish with the three patients. The three patients symbolized the three years of trial of her “patience” with her co-worker. She actually passed a test of character when she chose not to go through the door and to stay until finished because “three” also is significant of completing a divine process and purpose. And as the angel said, there will be another divine opportunity when the time is right.—Kathy (Kathy Gabler will be speaking at DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY 2017 – September 22-24 at Grace Int.

The Rock is Constant

While interviewing the great frontiersman, Daniel Boone, a reporter asked him, “Mr. Boone, have you ever been lost?” To which he replied, “Well, I was once bewildered for four days but I’ve never been lost.” At first, that sounds quite humorous but, in fact, it is a statement of some certainty. For an experienced explorer like Boone, it would be next to impossible for him to actually be lost in the truest since because he was a man of resource, initiative and skill. It didn’t matter in what area of wilderness or frontier he found himself, he still had the confidence of his skills and wilderness survival knowledge. It didn’t matter if it was winter, summer, spring or fall. It made no difference if he was in mountains, prairies or swamps, his knowledge, experience and skills served to keep him alive and on a correct heading. North was always constant and south was still south and that will never change. He could, therefore, always find direction in any season or location and, in spite of bears and weather hazards he had to deal with on numerous occasions, he lived to tell the story time and again. Our God is the immovable Rock Who is always constant. (Ps.31:3, Amp) ”Yes, You are my rock and my fortress; For Your name’s sake You will lead me and guide me.”  (Marty will be speaking at DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY 2017  September 22-23.)
