MELISSA— Have you ever had times when a revelatory nugget pops up, then within days you hear the same nugget from other sources? That’s been happening as of late and I’m learning to pay attention to those! Following is one such instance that has been not only ringing in my ear, but answering some of those seemingly unanswerable questions. While in conversation this was quoted to me from a book, “God hides some things for specific times so that the enemy cannot destroy them.” That stuck with me, and a couple of days later I read a quote from someone else that was expressing the exact same thought! Well, that really hit me between the eyes, especially because these came from trusted sources. It was an “Are you listening?” moment.
I began meditating on God hiding something for a specific time, and it felt like this statement began filling cracks in my understanding. If God cloaks something for a time, it is not only to hide it from the devil and his destructive minions, but it is also to hide it from our own self-sabotage. Yes, the devil and self-sabotage are two different things. However, the devil LOVES stoking the flames of self-sabotage! All we have to do is let our fears and concerns fall out of our mouths like kindling for the enemy’s threatening bonfire. So many times we make the devil’s job so easy.

MELISSA — This is the year to loose your grasp on Plan B and take hold, with both hands, of Plan A – His original intent for your life in this year. If your answer is hidden, ask God what the right question is in this moment. Ask Him what, in you, might be hindering the answer. Ask Him what you need to know today. He’s got plans for you, He is not into punishing you. His M.O. is all about forgiveness, redemption, relationship, and promotion all for His glory. Hey, if He tells you it’s simply about timing then it’s really that simple. His timing is perfect. Look at the birth and life of Samuel. Perseverance is key! It’s going to be an amazing year. Get ready for your answers. (Melissa will be leading worship and speaking at Kingdom Congress which is Mar.1-3,2023. All info: martygabler com/kc2023)
Melissa–Sitting here I keep hearing, “Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end” [Isaiah 9:7] This is not only a beloved Christmas time chapter, it is also laying out original intent. Looking up the word ‘government’ leads to this, Of the increase of His ‘dominion’ there shall be no end. Ever-increasing dominion is quite a powerful force! When I look at Isaiah 9 like that I just don’t think the plan is to keep cycling back around to needing revivals like we’ve known them in our lifetime. I say this for anyone who may be struggling with the term “revival” like I have. It can’t be about a formula, it has to be about the King’s dominion increasing during our lifetime.

Dr. Greg Crawford—[In January Dr. Crawford had a prophetic vision while he was meditating on many things concerning the life of the Body of Christ, the disconnected ones, the order needed, the power required, and he was seeking asking God what will it take to align and re-order all of this to your intention. Along with several other things, this is what was conveyed.] (You may read the whole vision in SEEC Magazine Volume 26 Issue 1)
This item was called “The Order”. “I saw an order coming into the earth again. This order was the ways of God. The order was defining the realignment of past structures. A structuring of governmental legislating. A way that would produce a path. The Path was part of the order. It was the outcome of the ways. The sound of the Ecclesia was the order. The order was coming to release authority. I saw wave upon wave of authority being released upon the earth, as another part of the order and path of God was being found and walked. The more this repeated the stronger the sound and the order became. Men’s hearts were giving way to the order as a more excellent way.”

Dr. Don Crum–The woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5 reached through that thin veil that separates the earthly from the heavenly. Heaven is not a faraway place, but rather a whole other dimension within close proximity to where we are in the earthly realm. When Jesus healed or delivered, He often made an important announcement, saying, “Behold, the kingdom of heaven has come upon you or near you”. So I think heaven is not a distant place but right on the other side of a thin veil that separates the earthly from the heavenly. This lady reached through that thin veil with her desperate faith, right into the heavenly dimension of God and laid hold of a stick of spiritual dynamite, lit the fuse with her fiery passion and pulled it into her circumstance, where it exploded and annihilated her disease. It completely went away that day because she pulled a stick of God’s dynamite into it!

Jim Hodges—“The question is not how much does the Kingdom advance before the King returns. The question is how much will the Body of Christ pray and participate in the agenda of the Kingdom of God in the culture? An increasing Kingdom that was prophesied by Isaiah demands an anointed, activated, and fearless people of God.”

Larry Burden — Bitter roots are defined as sinful reactions to painful events. The events, themselves, do not cause the root. The reaction to the events is at the core of the bitter root. Bitter roots express themselves as condemning judgments of people or the refusal or inability to forgive those who have hurt us. They manifest as names or careless words that we have either thought about, called others, or said about the ones who have hurt us. They are powerful toxic pollutants that damage and defile our souls and others around us as well. In response to hurts, wounds, or painful events, we express condemning judgments. We may try to push down the hurts, rationalize them, blow them off, or simply just pass them off as no big deal. But they are big deals! Over time these seeds of bitterness will build a root system and, if left unchecked, become the driving force of our personality, manifesting such things as: Cynicism, Apathy, Negativity and more. (LARRY BURDEN will be speaking at Kingdom Congress 2022 March 2-4. Grace Church Willis: 936-856-2455; All info for KC2022 – martygabler.com/kc2022/)
Kathy—Transition and change and growth and maturity can feel as drastic and unsettling as war; and the long-standing plans and purposes of God for our generation involve transition and change and growth and maturity. Our goal is NOT to change for change’s sake, but to obey God and let the word of God have effect. If traditions of men are challenged, let them fight for themselves. When Gideon tore down the altar of Baal, the men of the city said to his father, “Bring out your son that he may die, for he has torn down the altar of Baal!” But his dad said, “Are you Baal’s deliverers? If he is a god, let him contend for himself! If any traditions of men prove to be God-ordained, they will live. Meanwhile let’s not be distracted from obedience to give them CPR or keep them on a breathing machine. We can pray for discernment and wisdom so that we can cut through the fog of emotions and opinions that arise during transition and change and growth and maturity and war. God’s wisdom will keep us from standing against the changes that He is bringing to His church and our lives. Jam. 1:5 “But if any of you lack wisdom, you should pray to God, who will give it to you; because God gives generously and graciously to all.” (GNB)

As the people of God assemble today may they deeply experience the knowledge that Yahweh has a plan and that He may be fully trusted to keep His people on track with His intent regardless of the circumstances and fear-inducing turmoil so readily available on the web and on TV. May they determine and encourage one another that they won’t stop doing anything Jehovah has ordained them to do with any less faith, dedication, enthusiasm or determination than they committed themselves to in the past. Heb 3:14,Msg—“If we can only keep our grip on the sure thing we started out with, we’re in this with Christ for the long haul.”

Melissa Gabler — A reminder for 2021: don’t forget that a lot of what you are dealing with personally, whether it be physically or emotionally, may be the war in the atmosphere. We have the authority to say “peace” because we are His agents. When our Lord told the storm to “be still” the atmosphere listened. We carry that same authority and it is our job to change the atmosphere during our lifetime. So, the next time you are dealing with something personally let your first reaction be to remember there is so much more going on around you than your eyes can see. Ask, “where is this coming from and how do I need to deal with it?” You may simply need to say, “Peace, be still.” (Come to Kingdom Congress Mar.3-5,2021 and worship with Melissa and the Grace Worship Team. She will also be speaking Mar.4 at 10:00am. No Fee. All info for KC2021 is at martygabler.com/kc2021/)
Melissa — This passage is a perfect tool for this time: Proverbs 2:3-6, “make your ear attentive to wisdom and incline your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;” Ask for insight and understanding and you will begin to awaken to the fear of the Lord. Then you will understand how to navigate through what is at hand and what is to come. This is our opportunity to demonstrate the Kingdom of God and leave an effectual legacy centered in the fear of the Lord. I’ve heard so many times over the last couple of years that revival is coming. Yes, revival is coming, and it will come through awakened people bowing their knee to the Almighty God.

Kathy — Being quick to put our expectations and definitions on a word from God can set us up for disappointment because we know in part. We must allow God to define terms and add parts. Through the process we more fully understand what He said up front. So, no matter how contradictory or upsetting a part might seem, we can rest assured when all the parts finally come together, God’s intent and purpose will prevail. Isa.46:10, TPT — “I declare from the beginning how it will end and foretell from the start what has not yet happened. I decree that my purpose will stand, and I will fulfill my every plan.”
(On March 5, 2021 Kathy will be speaking on “The Kingdom and the Awakening” at Kingdom Congress at Grace Church in Willis,TX. The meetings will not be livestreamed. For detailed information go to martygabler.com/kc2021/)
LARRY BURDEN — The Passover was also important to Jesus because a divine shift was coming to the disciples in their relationship with the Father. In John 15:15, Jesus told His disciples, “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you”. The terminology identified a relational shift from that of servant-master to one of son-father. Up to the night of the Passover, the relationship of the disciples to Jesus had been strictly business. However, after the Passover meal, that changed. In the new covenant, the disciples were no longer held by the Father as servants, but sons! That night was a divine appointment that had been in the making before the beginning of time. (LARRY BURDEN is speaking at Kingdom Congress 2021. He is the author of the book “The Orphan Heart” that has impacted many lives. Schedule and info for KC2021: martygabler.com/kc2021)
Jim Hodges — “The question is not how much does the Kingdom advance before the King returns. The question is how much will the Body of Christ pray and participate in the agenda of the Kingdom of God in the culture? An increasing Kingdom that was prophesied by Isaiah demands an anointed, activated, and fearless people of God.” (Apostle Jim Hodges will be speaking at Kingdom Congress 2021 which is March 3-5.

Melissa — Many have been controlled by fear instead of the true intention of God which is freedom from fear that comes through the fear of the Lord. God is waking us up to what He intends for us. He is waking us up to freedom like we’ve never experienced in our nation or world. This explains so much. How can we live in the abundant life John 10:10 talks about if we have a knee bowed in fear of everything at our doorstep? How can we see miracles when we are bowing our knee to the impossibilities mounted against us? How can we leave a winning legacy when we count ourselves among the doomed statistics of disease and age and depletion and debt? It’s really starting to make sense why we have only seen glimpses of effectualness. Many have been under the control of the enemy who planted subtle deposits of fear for years through platforms to which we’ve given our trust and they didn’t work. But now it’s our time. We get to be alive for this! We get to be alive for the awakening and to bring the Kingdom to earth in ways we’ve never seen before.
