Our Confidence

As the people of God assemble today may they sing about, testify about, hear about and encourage one ManStandBibleanother 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!’”.

Have Been AND Gonna Bring it In

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 MenCarryHarvesthornets 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.

Creation is Groaning

Kathy — Creation is groaning for people of God to do supernatural things and bring God’s order. Children WalkWaterperceive 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!”

Don’t Forget the Harvest

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 CrowdWalkingloving 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.”

What we Need Right Now

FloodWaterGateMelissa — 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.

God’s Power Displayed on Earth

HeavenLightRaysHillsKathy — 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.”

Resurrection From Dead Dreams

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 AnticipationJumpWavesor 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.”

To Stand up Again

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?
ResurrectionTombHere 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.”

When Jesus Took Those Stripes

Melissa Gabler — God Himself created the original warranty when Jesus took those stripes on His back WomanHandsUpSun(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.

April is for Getting Up

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)

April2021 is For

Ready to be Reached

EvangelismOnStreetThis 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.

God’s Authority Over Disease

HandGodManHandsKathy — 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!’”

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! 

Grace to Reign in Life

HandHoldScepterAs 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!”

Stages to Development

ManFingerPlanningGod will take us through stages to develop in us a hearing ear and an obedient tongue. God is so faithful to His plan that He will not omit any of the stages of development. Sometimes each stage takes a different amount of time in one person as compared to another but He is faithful to take each of us through each stage until He has formed useful vessels. (Jer.18:2-4)

Tough Places in Life

Kathy — Psalm 139:16 (Paraphrased): “When I had not yet existed for even one moment, I was commissioned by God’s purpose. Before I was even wrapped as an embryo in my mother’s womb I was marked and approved by CocoononlimbGod’s eternal wisdom and greatness.” As surely as we were in the womb being transformed to come forth as a living being, reflecting the likeness of our natural fathers, we are in “cocoons” in life being transformed to reflect the likeness and character of our heavenly Father. What I mean by “cocoons” in life is the tough, tight places in life, times when we are caught in a web of circumstances or conditions that have us troubled, barely able to breathe and can’t see a way out. In “cocoon times”, we can either walk in faith and keep doing what we know to do and realize God is going to utilize it for our growth and development, or we can try to run and escape . . . maybe for an entire lifetime. Or we can take a machete to the thing, pitch a fit and tear up jack! (Of course that very rarely fixes real-life situations and usually makes them worse!) The bottom line is we only do damage when we refuse to change as needed.

Straight Down at 100mph!

Melissa — Ah, life! One minute everything is cruising right along, we’re on top of the world creating Facebook pages, writing books and making T-shirts to declare our life message to the world. The next thing you know… UpDownRollerCoasterstraight down at 100mph. Stinking roller coasters! They click right along at a nice pace and there is usually a great view to behold, then all of a sudden your stomach is in your throat. There was never a promise that life would be smooth sailing and easy. “Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.” James 1:2-4 (MSG) The ebbs and flows of a God-centered life are required for God’s original intent to take form.

Gathering Harvest

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 GatherHarvestManwasted. 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.”

Don’t Confuse Sentiment for Confirmation

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 FatherTwoSonsHikingFather 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)

Darkness has an Expiration Date

CloudSunBreakThruMelissa — 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. 

For the Appointed Time

ManWakeUpStretchAs 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.”
