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.

Recovery for Reputation

May the Lord grant you recovery from spots on your reputation no matter how small. Ps.135:14,LB—“For Jehovah will vindicate his people and have compassion on his servants.”

The Right Questions

MELISSA — We can ask the right kind of questions that lead down a path of deliverance, healing, and action.  When we ask the right questions we are able to hear the answers we need.  When we ask fear-based questions we have already come to the wrong, statistic-based, society-experienced conclusions.  These soulish conclusions make it really hard to hear a Spirit answer.  So, a good place to start asking the right question is to ask the Holy Spirit, “What questions should I be asking about this situation?” He will tell you, and most of the time these questions carry the answer in them.  The right questions are a key to unlock doors and chains.  The right questions give you the right perspective.

Identity Established by Jehovah

KATHY — Days of Elijah mark a time when God’s people have their identity established. 1Ki 18:30    ‘And Elijah said to all the people, Come near to me. And all the people came near to him; and he healed the altar of Jehovah that had been broken down.  31  And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the Word of Jehovah came, saying, Israel shall be your name.  With those stones, he drew a line between who they had become and who they were meant to be, and they were about to see their God confirm it.  36  And it happened at the offering of the sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near and said, O Jehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known today that You are God in Israel, and I am Your servant, that by Your Word I have done all these things.  37 Answer me, O Jehovah, answer me; and this people shall know that You are Jehovah God; and You shall turn their hearts back again.  38  And fire fell from Jehovah and burned up the burnt offering, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and the water in the trench was licked up.  39  And all the people saw, and fell on their faces, and said, Jehovah, He is the God; Jehovah, He is THE God!”  So shall days like the days of Elijah go down in history again!  

We Know Him if…

The Bible says that we’ve come to know Him if we keep His commandments. BUT many people would probably say that if God is real and if He really is to be known and if He really does exist He will correct wrongs, prevent suffering and do things for us that we like. Yet His Word says, “If we know Him we keep His commandments”. Jn.2:3-6,CEB—“This is how we know that we know Him: if we keep His commandments. The one who claims, ‘I know Him,’ while not keeping His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in this person. But the love of God is truly perfected in whoever keeps His word. This is how we know we are in Him. The one who claims to remain in Him ought to live in the same way as He lived. (His Word also says Lk.9:23)

An Unconventional God For Unconventional Times

Marty Gabler spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast in Mexico City in March 2023. The event was hosted by KingdomLife México. While there, the host asked him to bring a brief teaching to be shown throughout the nation. This is the video of that session.

Darkness and Desperateness

KATHY—Days of Elijah are days when lovers of darkness are dramatically desperate! 1Ki 18:28 “And they called with a loud voice, and cut themselves, according to their way, with swords and with spears until blood gushed out on them.  29  And it happened as noon passed by, that they prophesied madly until the offering up of the offering; and no sound came, and no one was answering, and no one was paying attention.”  Well, so be it in our day. May there be confusion in the enemy’s camp.

Renewed Like the Eagle

As the people of God assemble today may they look beyond their undesirable experiences. May they lift up their eyes and their expectancies to the saving, bringing-out, turning-around, breaking-through God. May they push aside barriers, excuses and hurts long enough to embrace Father’s love and impartation by His Holy Spirit so that they are renewed like the eagle (Isa.40:31). Jer.31:25,Msg—“I’ll refresh tired bodies; I’ll restore tired souls.”

Don’t Give Up

Melissa — There have been events and experiences, and reactions to it all, that have set up a spiritual and moral sepsis in individuals and the nation as a whole. So, the first quarter of this year we have begun to see what God has been dealing with nationally and personally. That is why there is a seeming mix of last year’s funk along with “finally—suddenlies”. That poison has a tendency to try and hold on tenaciously even though it can be extracted and overcome. So, don’t give up, ” 7 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. 8 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. 9 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.” (Galatians 6:7-9 AMP). IT IS TIME.

Projecting Blame on Others

KATHY–Days of Elijah were days of de-masking the troublers who projected their blame on others.  After three years of no rain, there was almost nothing to eat anywhere and the LORD said to Elijah, “Go and meet with King Ahab. I will soon make it rain.” So Elijah went to see Ahab.  When Ahab saw Elijah he shouted, “There you are, the biggest troublemaker in Israel!” Elijah answered: “You’re the troublemaker, not me! You and your family have disobeyed the LORD’s commands by worshiping Baal. Call together everyone from Israel and have them meet me on Mount Carmel. Be sure to bring along the four hundred fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah who eat at Jezebel’s table.  Ahab got everyone together, then they went to meet Elijah on Mount Carmel. Elijah stood in front of them and said, “How much longer will you try to have things both ways? If the LORD is God, worship him! But if Baal is God, worship him!” The people did not say a word.  The masks were off!

Demonstrating the Kingdom of God

Let us commit ourselves to more efficient demonstration of the Kingdom in the remainder of this year. More Kingdom demonstration will require less debate.  More fathers being fathers will require fewer jail cells. More exemplary lifestyle will require less correction. More redemptive action will require fewer words.  Eze.38:23,Amp—“Thus I shall magnify Myself and demonstrate My greatness and sanctify Myself, and I will be recognized and will make Myself known in the sight of many nations; they will know [without any doubt] that I am the Lord.”

God is Releasing Another Increment

Melissa — Even though the sky is clearing there may be a storm or two that pops up as we head into the God-ordained days ahead. No worries though, the storms have to “be still” and bow to the intention of God Almighty. In prayer the other night I heard this after it came out of my mouth, “Your Kingdom is over this nation and you are releasing another increment upon us.” What if we are that increment?! What if we are the stealth measures He is putting in place to release a deeper increment of His Kingdom on this earth? Me thinks we are!

KATHY—The Days of Elijah are “BUT GOD” times.  “Bring me your son,” Elijah said (1Kings17). Then he took the boy from her arms and carried him upstairs to the room where he was staying. Elijah laid the boy on his bed and prayed, “LORD God, why did you do such a terrible thing to this woman? She’s letting me stay here, and now you’ve let her son die.”  Even Elijah’s issues surfaced in this battle of life and death.  Evidently shaken by the widow’s upset and shouting, the prophet spoke to God as if He was being unjust!  BUT GOD was waiting on him to calm down and work a miracle. (Remember that in days of battle.) Elijah stretched himself out over the boy three times, while praying, “LORD God, bring this boy back to life!” The LORD answered Elijah’s prayer, and the boy started breathing again. Elijah picked him up and carried him downstairs. He gave the boy to his mother and said, “Look, your son is alive.”  As the widow could testify, the days of Elijah undeniably manifest the Power of God on earth.

Hearts and Hopes Filled Up

As the people of God assemble today may their hearts and hopes be filled up with their omnipresent Father Who is so great that the universe responds to His voice and His plans. May they encourage one another that He is omnipotent yet near, omniscient yet concerned about and seeing their needs even as He sees the individual sparrow. May they speak His name and praise His name. Gen.16:13, Amp—“So she called the name of the Lord Who spoke to her, You are a God of seeing [El Roi], for she said, Have I [not] even here [in the wilderness] looked upon Him Who sees me [and lived]? Or have I here also seen [the future purposes or designs of] Him Who sees me?”

Children of The Most High

The name of the Lord is El-Elyon “God Most High.” How privileged we are to be children of the MOST HIGH GOD. So we give the Most High the highest place in every area of life so that He may fulfill His will through us in earth as it is in heaven. Blessed be the name of the Lord!   Ps.57:2, Amp—“I will cry to God Most High, Who performs on my behalf and rewards me [Who brings to pass His purposes for me and surely completes them]!”

All Day Every Day

Melissa — It’s going to take loving the Truth (which is a Person—THE Person) to see great and mighty things for which an earth is groaning (Romans 8:17-19). It’s going to take some calling on that Person which requires relationship, not curbside pickup. And relationship takes time, time out of your day. This does not mean you have to set aside hours and hours every day. That is not a bad thing if that’s where you are currently, or a season you are headed into. Other than that, a relationship is all day everyday.

Hopelessness Can Smother

KATHY— Days of Elijah were war torn times with fresh battles continually breaking out. Several days into the battle against lack and starvation, another battle broke out in the widow’s life.  Her son got sick and kept getting worse until finally he died.  The woman shouted at Elijah, “What have I done to you? I thought you were God’s prophet. Did you come here to cause the death of my son as a reminder that I’ve sinned against God?”  War has a way of bringing the struggles of a warrior’s heart to the surface.  Not only was she battling for survival and the life of her son, an old enemy showed up too.  Condemnation reared its ugly head and pushed the war torn woman to the edge of hopelessness, anguish and anger that had her shouting at the prophet.  Hopelessness can smother the fight in us and usually leads to a pit of self-examination and despair.  The widow went there and decided that losing her son was due to her past sins.  That thinking would have had her throwing up her hands and quitting . . . BUT GOD.

Something Peter Never Heard Of

Peter’s friends were weeping and praying for his release from prison but it is most doubtful that they were visualizing an angel walking in and slapping him on the hip and commanding him to rise up (Acts 12:7) while his chains simply fell off. Which one of them actually pictured in their mind that an angel would simply usher Peter out of that prison like they were going for a Sunday stroll? How can we call this event anything but extraordinary? One of the amazing factors about Peter’s experience is that he was experiencing something that he had never even taught on! There was no popular teaching making the rounds at all the big conferences that taught about the existence of a special squad of jail-breaking angels. Something happened that Peter had never heard of.

Calling on Father on a Daily Basis

Melissa — Let’s not limit calling on God for great and mighty answers to things we need only. If He says I’ll “show you great and mighty things” why in the world would we not call on Him on a daily basis to see what awesomeness He has in store for the here and now? The requirement for asking such things daily is to be in a dominion/heaven-on-earth state rather than a victimized one. A victimized state of mind keeps us stuck on “me, my, me”. The way out of victimhood is in truth because it has a tendency to set you free IF you know it by meditating on and living it (John 8:32). This is one of the main issues we face today because we have too much information, whether it be truth or a lie, at our fingertips every moment of every day. Easy access has become the demoralizer of an entitled culture. Yes, this applies to Christians as well.
