As the people of God assemble today may they sing about, testify about, hear about and encourage one another about their confidence in their heavenly Father to be and do what He has promised in His never-failing Word. May they decide that they will not move from off of that firm foundation of His Word that will find them confident in the face of any storm or threat knowing that “no matter what the case may be, I know He’s gonna fix it for me.”
Heb.13:6,TPT—“So we can say with great confidence:‘I know the Lord is for me and I will never be afraid of what people may do to me!’”.
We are bringing in and we are going to bring in a harvest. Satan is going to be kicking himself for being so stupid as to set up our nation to be so fed up with unrighteousness, deceit and chaos. I read a report recently that claims 20% more people are reading the Bible since the outbreak of the virus. Don’t forget the murder hornets and the riot thugs the enemy threw into the battle when he realized the virus wasn’t going to do just what he had planned. People are looking for answers, looking for peace. Since the shutdowns and quarantines came into effect, more people have been spending more time on the internet. I have been contacted by people I haven’t seen in forty years and family members who are looking for hope. Our home church Grace Church in Willis,TX has had parking lot services on Friday evenings. One evening a guy on a motorcycle drove up because he heard the worship team doing a sound check. He stayed for the whole service, raised his hand for prayer and took communion with us. People stopped on the street and listened as we worshipped and prayed and declared over our city and nation. We are set up for awakening, revival, harvest to the glory of the Father through Christ Jesus our Lord.
Kathy — Creation is groaning for people of God to do supernatural things and bring God’s order. Children perceive it early on. It’s in the DNA of their spirit to reach beyond natural to supernatural. That’s why they love video games that take them beyond natural limits. If we don’t teach them to know God, they won’t know they were born to walk on water or heal the blind WHEN it is obedience to Father’s instructions. Rom.8:19,TPT—“The entire universe is standing on tiptoe [i.e., intense anticipation], yearning to see the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters!”
Your True North Will Never Fail You
In this 9min.video Marty encourages us with the fact that Holy Father’s faithfulness in these bewildering times is more certain than north on a compass.

I have seen some videos of harvest coming in. I have seen videos of church services and prayer meetings on downtown sidewalks, of nurses and doctors kneeling in hospitals praying out loud, videos of black people loving on white people loving on Hispanics loving on Asians and First Nations people. I have been in meetings with people of various colors and ethnicities and we were loving on each other, laying hands on each other, prophesying over each other because there is a harvest to bring in. Don’t forget the harvest. Don’t get so focused on the immediate concerns and events of your community and nation that you forget about the harvest of souls to be gathered in for the Lord of Harvest. Col.3:11—“Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.”
Melissa — God simply does not produce junk. He didn’t create humanity with only “one shot” to make it a good life, so “you better not mess up” or get sick in the process or “your life is over”. We have in us what we need right now, at this moment in time, for ourselves AND for our nation. Dare I even say, for the world. We have it because we have a relationship with Jesus Christ which opens us up to be a floodgate of Heaven on earth.
Team Gabler will be with Compass Regional Network
April 17, 2021 at the Courtyard Marriott in Killeen,TX.
10:00am — 6:00pm *** No Fee to Attend
Marty, Kathy and Melissa will each be speaking and ministering in the meetings.
Kathy — Jesus said the Kingdom of heaven is at hand because the authority and power of God is within reach! Everything in heaven displays God’s authority and power and that same authority and power can be displayed on the earth. Matt.6:10,Amplified—“Manifest your kingdom realm, and cause your every purpose to be fulfilled on earth, just as it is in heaven.”
As the people of God assemble on Resurrection Sunday may the power of that very Resurrection fill the room and fill each person. May He, Who IS the Resurrection revive all the dreams and all the visions that have died or ceased to function in each one. May we come through Resurrection Sunday standing up again and going out in the name of the Lord preaching His ever-expanding Kingdom that those who are captive might be set free in King Jesus’ resurrection power for the purposes of our Lord.
Rom.6:4,TPT—“Sharing in his death by our baptism means that we were co-buried with him, so that when the Father’s glory raised Christ from the dead, we were also raised with him. We have been co-resurrected with him so that we could be empowered to walk in the freshness of new life.”
Martha spoke of resurrection in terms of an end-time doctrine. JESUS spoke of resurrection in terms of that which is a present fact applicable to present circumstances. JESUS was challenging Martha to see it and experience it BEFORE the Last Day. If JESUS cannot raise us from the death of failure (“death”: termination or extinction of something; cessation of all vital functions), from the death “of ceasing of function”, from the death of “not functioning because of fault or breakdown”, how can He raise us from the dust at the Last Day?
Here at Bethany, where JESUS is speaking to Martha, He is only two miles from Jerusalem where He healed one who had been diseased for 38 years; He healed one who had been blind since birth; now He raised one who had been dead for four days. Surely He can raise you up today. I like this definition of resurrection: “to stand up again.” Rejoice, it’s Resurrection Day! You can stand up again because Resurrection is a Person! (v.25) Jn.11:23—“Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha said to Him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I AM THE RESURRECTION and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.”
Melissa Gabler — God Himself created the original warranty when Jesus took those stripes on His back (Isa.53:5 & 1Pe. 2:24). Yeah, that’s right, we have a never ending warranty on us, signed in blood. This warranty includes, “…all things that pertain unto life and godliness” (2 Pt. 1:3). Whatever you are dealing with is covered in your “warranty”. It’s fixable! The siege is over because the Lord has already lifted up a standard against it (Is. 59:19). Our individual lives are about the greater good so go ahead and be healed right now! You are too important to be silenced by sickness, pain or emotional turmoil.
The month of April is for getting up and coming out of
the tombs that have held us in guilt, disease, self-pity,
crippling judgment and fear.
(Acts 13:34; 1Peter 1:3)
This nation is likely riper than it has ever been. It is probably riper than it was in the 1960’s when there was so much turmoil and chaos with the rioting and unrest. We are sons and daughters of God, there is a harvest and Isaiah says that God has harvesters and gatherers who can bring it in. There is a harvest of souls, of people who are fed up with chaos and lawlessness, misinformation and lies and the consequences of unrighteousness. There are people who are ready to be reached, ready to be loved, ready for peace in their lives.
Kathy — Even though His throne is in heaven, God’s domain and His authority and power are both in heaven and on the earth. That’s why when Jesus healed, He said, “The Kingdom has come upon you.” God’s authority and power over sickness and disease has come upon your physical body, here, now, on earth. Lk.10:9, TPT — “Heal the sick, and tell them all, ‘God’s kingdom has arrived and is now within your reach!’”
Melissa — Is this the end? Well, it is for some very old wickedness. It has mocked God and is getting crushed to oblivion. We have to remember this when the battle is this intense. Hey, if those who have sown to the flesh are reaping destruction, then the other side of that coin is heaven on earth! “But the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in.” (Gal. 6:8-9, AMP) Don’t push this promise off to someday when you die. God’s original intent is for us to be heaven-on-earth during our lifetime. Heaven is invading earth right now. This harvest is here for both sides of this coin! While the corrupt are meeting their corruption the just are receiving their promises. This is a beautiful time to be alive. We get to see the justice and goodness of a God that will never be mocked. You can be assured of that! Angels, attend to the harvest!
As the people of God assemble today may their eyes open even wider to the wonders of their God and to His plans in this earth and to His grace that enables His sons and daughters to overcome and reign in life. Rom.5:17, TPT — “Death once held us in its grip, and by the blunder of one man, death reigned as king over humanity. But now, how much more are we held in the grip of grace and continue reigning as kings in life, enjoying our regal freedom through the gift of perfect righteousness in the one and only Jesus, the Messiah!”
Isa.17:5 paints a picture of reapers gathering corn and their arms gathering the ears and gleaning ears of grain. The corn, the harvest (souls, Father God’s purposes in the earth) has not stopped growing nor shall it stop growing. That means that there must be reapers and arms to gather it in. The grain grows until the time of harvest and there are reapers who are anticipating and prepared to gather it in. The grain does not harvest itself. There must be reapers, gatherers who are willing to go out into the fields and gather it in lest it be wasted. Jesus told His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few” (Matt.9:37). There is no question as to whether or not there is a harvest. Jesus is the Lord of the harvest, so can you imagine the vastness of the harvest to be gathered in? It is Father’s good, acceptable and perfect will for His people to “gather a fruitful harvest” Ps.107:37, NASB — “And sow fields and plant vineyards, And gather a fruitful harvest.”
Kathy — Sometimes we confuse sentiment for confirmation. When others sense our despair they offer encouragement that we take as confirmation to take action but sentiment is not the same as wisdom. “Ishmaels” are the result of unauthorized action or behavior. Jesus had all authority, yet He only did what He saw the Father doing. Jn.5:19, NASB — “Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in the same way.” Ishmael is NOT what we see the Father doing, Ishmael is what we hope He will condone. The results of an Ishmael carry over on others for generations. Ishmael: “God will hear”- that represents an injustice on the innocent that God will not ignore. Once the fruit of compromise is born it takes on a life of its own. However, the better news is that the existence of an Ishmael does not stop God’s purpose in Isaac. The future can still bring glory to God because our Redeemer lives. (Ps.19:14)
Melissa — Darkness has an expiration date and its number has been called. The Hosts of Heaven are currently attending to that matter. “For the one who sows to his flesh [his sinful capacity, his worldliness, his disgraceful impulses] will reap from the flesh ruin and destruction.” (Gal.6:8) There it is in rather simple language. This corrupt spirit has been defying, challenging and ridiculing the original intent of God and its time is up. God’s intent is the only thing that carries life and blessing. Anything outside of that is an enemy of God and will surely self destruct …with some help from Angel Armies.
As the people of God assemble today let us agree and pray to see the vision of our Holy Father God for our nation to come to pass by His mighty hand of intervention and by His awakening of His people to His faithfulness and to the verity of His Word and never-failing promises. Hab.2:3, Amp — “For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time It hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, Because it will certainly come; it will not delay.”
There is an average of 800 kernels on an ear of corn. It can vary all the way up to 1200 per ear and there can be 2-4 ears per stalk. That is a lot of corn! There is a harvest that is still growing and maturing. A few months ago as I drove through Central Texas I saw thousands of acres of corn growing and I was amazed at the number of stalks and ears that were showing growth day by day.
I was on the go, driving down a rural highway and praying about what is going on in our communities and our churches and how it is all being so affected by the fear, the riots, violence, rules and shutdowns. We have spoken with a number of church leaders and church people and so many of them are pre-occupied with it all that they find it difficult to put any thought or effort into advancing the Kingdom.
The Lord is still on the throne and still at work on the harvest He desires in the earth. His plan is still in tact. He didn’t suddenly see some of the things on the news and say, “Oh, wow, I really didn’t plan well” or “Maybe I better change some of my plans because present circumstances will not willingly yield up the results I had hoped for” or “Maybe it would be best to just wait awhile”. The corn in those huge fields did not stop growing when the first violent, law-breaker rioters began destroying property and lives. It kept growing. No combination of events or national crises will stop the Lord’s harvest from growing.
Melissa — Have you ever been praying and all of a sudden words fall out of your mouth that stop you in your tracks because they came straight from your spirit? That happened to me recently while praying over our nation. I was praying about the deep-seated darkness being exposed, then I heard myself saying this, “Angels attend to the harvest.” I all of a sudden realized that I have had a particular paradigm about “harvest” and in that moment it was turned upside down. I realized in that moment that “harvest” to me has always referred to either people getting saved or financial blessing. In that moment, I immediately knew it was time for the wicked to receive their harvest. In other words, it is time for the wicked to reap what they have sown, and angels are seeing to that harvesting! “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked [He will not allow Himself to be ridiculed, nor treated with contempt nor allow His precepts to be scornfully set aside]; for whatever a man sows, this and this only is what he will reap. For the one who sows to his flesh [his sinful capacity, his worldliness, his disgraceful impulses] will reap from the flesh ruin and destruction, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” (Galatians 6:7-8 Amplified).
Kathy — I believe often we truly hear or perceive God’s truth, but we end up in doubt and despair because we didn’t factor in His timing. The priority in God’s timing is always our transformation into His likeness. He gives direction and motivation up front, and His promised outcome is certain, but experiencing it in our lifetime could hinge on our faithful submission to the becoming-process on the way there. Gal.4:19, TPT— “You are my dear children, but I agonize in spiritual “labor pains” once again, until the Anointed One will be fully formed in your hearts!”
