June is For…

THE MONTH OF JUNE
The month of June is for looking and seeing over the top of the hump that stands in the path of our being able to see the next step or the solution to a great need. Ps.3:3,TPT—“But in the depths of my heart I truly know that you, Yahweh, have become my Shield; You take me and surround me with yourself. Your glory covers me continually. You lift high my head.”


God’s Intent for You

MSG No Rival 3-4-18picMelissa — The beauty is you just live your personal Jeremiah 29:11, and watch God.  All you have to do is do what you were born to do, and stop allowing fear to guide your life.  You see, fear makes you think you don’t have anything specific to do, you missed it, you don’t deserve it.  God has an original intent for you personally that is absolutely connected to His original intent for this earth. 


Staying The Course

MPG Grace 4-5-20Starting on course is a great deal easier than staying the course. The admirable intentions we begin with may fall prey to the wily snares of unexpected interruptions, self-pity and obligations to family, friends and all of human kind. Starting on course and staying the course may prove to be very costly. But the loss of that which would never be gained is inestimable. 2Tim.4:7,TPT—“I have fought an excellent fight. I have finished my full course with all my might and I’ve kept my heart full of faith.”


You Have Something to Deposit

Melissa — Having a relationship with the King is an eye-opener: You are not junk.  You have not messed up your fictitious “one shot”.  You do not have to live with sickness and pain.  You most certainly DO have something to deposit where you are and where He takes you.  You/we are here for a purpose beyond occupying space and time.  You are here to make a difference.  There is healing in knowing this! 


Lord of This Moment and….

Kathy — I sat alone downstairs at the piano, not really playing any particular song but simply flowing in sounds that came with His presence. I did not intend to sing but these words slipped out of my heart, “You are the Lord of this moment.” As soon as my words met the air, like an echo response I heard, “AND THE MOMENT BEFORE.” I could not have explained the sudden weeping had anyone overheard it, for it was a gusher from my heart outside my logic or understanding. Then when my understanding did open, the weeping would not stop. Though I didn’t realize it, that worshipful, prophetic declaration was also a cry from my heart for a moment of comfort and quietness that would shut out all the noise of need and concern and “what-ifs.” The awesome Spirit of my God did not miss nor ignore that heart-cry. If desperation had my ship listing, His four word echo set me aright. If anxiety was smothering, His words brought me a deep breath. If time was threatening, His words turned the clock back. If I feared I was at an unchangeable end, hope took me back to a new beginning. He was reminding me that before circumstances piled up, before dysfunction developed, before trouble troubled, He had seen it coming, and He had the table set for me
before my enemies even got there. It was a powerful reminder that His provision is there before the problem.


Sound of the Ages

God is looking for a people who will line up with a plan that has been in existence for eons. God “framed,” “completed,” “fit for Himself the ages” (Heb.11:3) with sound. He sounded out that which fit His purposes. The ages have been “fit for Himself” therefore the machinations and agendas of men (both religious and nonreligious) will not fit or find a place of fulfillment in them. Could it be that sometime we get frustrated over unanswered prayer because our prayers don’t fit what Father has already sounded out for the ages which our lives were meant to fit properly and successfully into? Since the ages were framed by the sound of God, we might want to take time to listen to that sound rather than making all the sound during prayer. (Compare Rev.2:7)


What a Day Can Hold

From a spontaneous song Melissa sang on a Sunday morning: “You don’t understand what a day can hold. spring sunriseWith each breath you take things can change.  You don’t understand what this day can hold.  With the next breath you take life can change. With each step you take won’t you expect the impossible? Won’t you expect the answer? Don’t you understand that a day sits in the palm of His hand? With each breath you take life can change.  So, won’t you get ready for the impossible at your door? Because each day sits in the palm of His hand and there’s nothing outside of His grasp, nothing too far for His eyes to see.” 


Game Changer: Miracles, Signs, Wonders

LightsStadiumFieldMelissa — A definite “game-changer” in the coming days and challenges of 2021 is Miracles, Signs and Wonders. Just get ready for these to become the norm. And get ready to be the gate through which they come.  What you have been in training to release will become obvious this year.


Hidden, Misused and Fringe Exposed

We are declaring that hidden and misused facts will be exposed for what they are in near days. We declare that entities attempting to distract from “matters that matter”, by amplifying fringe voices and emphasizing WomanFaceHandsMasknon-essentials, will lose their steam. We declare that the economics of our nation and the mounting waves of hunger for truth and awakening in our nation will not be thwarted by the machinations of darkness. Job 5:12,Amp—“He frustrates the devices and schemes of the crafty, So that their hands cannot attain success or achieve anything of [lasting] worth.” Isa.29:15,Amp—“Woe (judgment is coming) to those who [try to] deeply hide their plans from the Lord, Whose deeds are done in a dark place, And who say, “Who sees us?” or “Who knows us?”


Game-Changer: Realization

GameChangerChessMoveMelissa — There are things that can be “game-changers” in the remaining days of this year. One “game-changer” can be our letting this be the year of realization. Yes, you are healed… there it is. Yes, you are delivered from chronic issues and habits… there it is.  Yes, God’s promise is still intact… there it is. Yes, you have a role in 2021… there it is. No, you are not out of His reach… there He is.


The Other Side

Darkness, huge crashing waves and dangerous high winds were life-threatening factors pressing upon the disciples and rocketing fear and dread to heights they had never known. They were panicking because, if the present unconventional factors continued, they and their boat would go to the bottom of the lake. Initially, Jesus had told His disciples to go to the other side of the lake (Matt.14:22-27). At first, they were probably focused on their Lord’s instruction and enthused about following those instructions. They likely had a point of BoatRowPaddlesOlddestination in their minds and could see it with the mind’s eye as they planned their route and even had a spot in mind to tie up their boat when they landed. But, en route, unconventional elements interjected themselves and the disciples were forced into an entirely different form of effort in which they could no longer see the conventional path or destination. They could only focus on immediate surroundings and attempts at survival. We must beware of reaching a point at which we are merely dwelling on just the facts. Focus on present circumstances and abandoning “the other side” and abandoning instructions or putting them on hold, will take the heart out of us which is a must-have factor in getting us beyond the choking grip of present factors. These may be the present facts but they are not the conclusion of the matter. In the Bible, present facts and final conclusions always looked very different from one another.


Have you noticed the myriad of challenges in current events that seem to have no solution? Have you ManJumpRockwondered if there are any answers to the dilemmas you wrestle with in your life? As you face the unknown factors of challenges ahead of you, may your ears and eyes be opened to discover that there are still possibilities in God for solutions that no one has ever considered. May you go toward those challenges speaking in agreement with the creative acts of God in the Bible and in the earth. Let’s imitate Abraham: (Rom.4:17, Msg)  “…[Abraham] dared to trust God to do what only God could do: … with a word make something out of nothing.” We are praying you discover daily the possibilities and solutions in the risen Christ.

Is This the End?

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 MilkyWayDarkSkyare 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! 


Melissa-Vision __ Marty-Declarations

In this brief 3min. excerpt from Kingdom Congress 2021 Melissa shares a vision at the end of her message and Marty makes declarations.

Chaos is up Against Humility

Chaos represents utmost impossibility to man and covers him with hopeless despair where he is willing to lay down his beliefs and former commitments so that he may gain some semblance of comfort in spite of the dreaded disorder (“Chaos”: a disorderly, confused, condition or state). Throughout history there have been perpetrators of confusion who have, for the manangryholdheadpurpose of control, attempted to throw the populace into confusion in order to coerce them into turning over their freedom for relief. Many to the south and east of the USA have already done that and are praying for the USA to wake up and realize that we must speak out and act now to preserve our constitution and nation. Chaos and its bold, inclusive threats will not prevail if God’s people will humble themselves and pray (2Chron.7:14) and take a stand in spite of brash attempts of darkness to limit and/ or remove freedoms. If God could create the worlds out of nothing, surely we can see and take tremendous hope of His creating righteous order out of the chaos of self-focused, power-hungry people.

Search For Hidden Treasure

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 DiggingForTreasuresearch 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.  (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/)


When All the Parts Come Together

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 PieceOfPuzzleunderstand 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/)

The Father and His Sons

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 FatherArmsChildknown 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)

Before the King Returns

CrownGoldRaysJim 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.

Freedom From Fear

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 PrayingKnightWarriorKneelingnever 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.  (Come to Kingdom Congress Mar.3-5,2021 and worship with Melissa and the Grace Worship Team.
