HEALTH UPDATE: HOME!

The big news around here is that after 3 surgeries and 3 weeks of recovery in the hospital without visitors, Carolyn was discharged on June 11 and is home. Yay! Our son Daniel is also home! Double yay!! Actually, much to our delight, he is here for two reasons: 1) to help us and be a strength to us; 2) and for six weeks of job training that he will carry with him and work remotely from his apartment in Atlanta.

Furthermore, he can move anywhere in the country, and take this job with him. For an inspiring actor, that’s big. Our seed is highly favored and shall be mighty on earth, because he fears the Lord and delights in God’s commandments (Ps. 112:1-2). We are so happy to be together as a little family for the first time since last Christmas.

After a little over five weeks at home, Carolyn is healing nicely.  She is now able to stand and walk more and more every day. We rejoice in  her progress. Her leg bandages, one on each upper leg, and another one on her left calf, where the cancerous tumor was removed, have to be changed twice a day.

The surgeon took a skin graft from her right leg, and that is healing really good. In fact, the bandage or covering on that leg was permanently removed, so the skin can breathe and new skin can form quicker. The best way to describe that upper leg is like grating a piece of cheese or looking at a massive rug burn that peeled a foot of skin off. Ouch! My baby doll has been so brave, and the Lord has shown us His divine intervention and loving kindnesses in so many ways through the body of Christ. 

The journey ahead is still long with 6 weeks of radiation remaining, but the days now are definitely brighter.

THE LAW OF ATTRACTION: THE CONDITION OF DEPARTED SPIRITS

THE LAW OF ATTRACTION

A couple of years ago I preached a message on The Law Of Attraction using Rev. 22:11 as an opening text, explaining that the condition of departed spirits who’ve left this earth is irreversible. After death you will be drawn to the ruling passions you were drawn to in this life. This means that if you were drawn to places where sin reigns such as night clubs, bars, porn sites, to where evil is glorified, to where profanity, obscenities, and curses are spoken, then you will leave this earth and be pulled toward the place of those ruling desires. In this case, hell.

If you are a slave to sin and cannot stop its bondage in your life…if you do not enjoy worshiping and sharing Jesus…if you resist spiritual instruction and holy preaching you are in danger of eternal perdition. If you do not have mental freedom and peace deep down inside your spiritual nature is not in accord with God.

Heaven is for the pure and holy. Heaven is for those whose natures have changed, who’ve truly repented and been born again, and who love Jesus with all their hearts and are living wholly for Him. Holiness and sin can never touch each other. There can be no mixture. Good and evil cannot harmonize. The sinful nature of man can never harmonize with the intense purity and holiness of heaven. A sinner would be in complete discord and agony in heaven.

You’re either born again with a new nature that loves and practices righteousness or you’re still in your sins and practicing unrighteousness. Heaven and hell are determined by you and your nature, not God. He has sent Jesus Christ whose precious blood was shed that you might repent and believe the gospel and be born again (Jn. 3:7) and given power to become sons of God (Jn. 1:12).

What I’m saying is this: The great purpose of divine revelation is to warn men that their manner of living in this world has a permanent effect on their eternal destiny. Humanity’s time on the earth is very brief compared to eternity and serves to only be a dressing room to prepare your soul for eternity and secure fitness for the next life. This is what should have every man’s reverent attention in this life.

Do not let the devil lie to you and tell you that you will be unhappy if you repent and live a holy lifestyle and that somehow you’ll be missing out on the fun. Don’t believe the big lie of Satan that there can be no real enjoyment in life if you stop sinning. The truth is that the person who has truly repented has no desire to sin. The grace of God is given to a person who repents and changes that person’s desires and empowers him to live for Christ.

The fake love gospel void of repentance has deceived many. The hyper-grace gospel void of repentance has deceived many. The diabolical silence on holiness and such themes as the cross, the blood, and hell have bred defective believers who profess Christ but in works and obedience deny Him.

Many in and outside the church need to repent and believe the gospel. If we just do that it will change the Church and the nation.

They also combat the departure from the faith and turning away from the truth we are seeing today.

AN URGENT PROPHETIC ALERT AND WARNING FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST FROM JEREMIAH JOHNSON

Perhaps some of you have seen this prophetic alert that has gone viral to over a million people at last count. Because of the urgency and importance of this incredible prophetic encounter that our brother Jeremiah Johnson was granted, I share it  for the Church to target their prayers as the Lord leads. Thank God for wisdom and revelation that came from this encounter. 

Released on June 1, 2020

Dear Saints and Leaders,

On the night of May 30th, while praying and pacing over the United States in my home around 2 am, a demonic entity appeared right before me in an open vision. This type of encounter has only ever happened one other time while I was ministering in a foreign country in 2015. I have always engaged in this type of spiritual warfare while asleep and dreaming prophetically, but rarely if ever to this degree while awake.

This demonic entity had a visible and deep scar underneath its right eye, but it also had the ability to mutate or rather change forms. I watched this “being” morph several times right in front of me, yet the gash below its right eye remained.

It pointed its finger right in my face and said, “I exist to deceive the whole world. Just as there are forerunners in the kingdom of God that go before the Son of Man, so I am a forerunning spirit in the kingdom of darkness that has been sent before the coming of the man of lawlessness.”

It continued, “The scar underneath my right eye has come at the hands of the praying Church, for many of them in this hour have begun to detect our true plans and purposes to disrupt systems, divert attention, and release chaos in the land.”

1. Disrupt Systems
2. Divert Attention
3. Release Chaos

At this point in the encounter, the hair on my body was standing straight up as I had never been told anything like this at length by a demonic entity. Suddenly, all I can describe is the authority and mind of Christ came upon me and I pointed my finger back at this demon and demanded, “Who is the source behind your power and influence?”

It began to laugh hysterically, a sound that still taunts me and with great rage this demon answered and roared, “The Media!”

I fixed my gaze upon it and said, “You devil that has come to deceive the whole world through the media and is being exposed right now, I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to reveal your agenda!”

With a sneer it began to manifest a foul spirit and the first wave I smelled was FEAR. I saw the Coronavirus spreading across the whole world and the spirit of fear attached to it. The second wave of stench the demon manifested was HATE and I saw the cities on fire and racism escalating. The third wave that came was GREED and it was the strongest of all the smells.

In that moment of time, by way of Holy Spirit revelation, I understood that what we are witnessing in 2020, beyond a virus and beyond racism and police brutality is a diabolical and sinister agenda called “greed”. A wave of fear has hit through the virus and now a wave of anger through the riots, but the real culprit is greed!

In other words, the world is being held hostage right now by demonic forces preparing the way for the man of lawlessness. There is so much deception being spread through the media that now we must understand what we are “seeing” and “hearing” on the news and social media is a simple diversion from the real truth!

I’m telling you right now by the Spirit of God that what is happening in our world today has surpassed a virus, racism, and police brutality and the sooner we recognize what’s really going on, the sooner we can gain the victory!

For those who have ears to hear and eyes to see, we must now begin to target our prayers on the spirit of greed and understand the fight is regarding the finances!

The finances behind the virus!

The finances behind the rioting and looting!

The finances behind taking down the President!

Millions are being sold a false report. The african american race and their justified pain is being preyed on by an agenda filled with greed! The agenda behind the virus and hopes to vaccinate and dominate is greed!

After this encounter I finally see it like never before!

China. The WHO. George Soros. Bill Gates.

Follow the spirit of greed in this hour and it will not only expose the agenda behind the fear and hate but it will lead you to the freedom only found in TRUTH!

WHY ARE SO MANY CHURCHES NOT EVEN PRAYING RIGHT NOW?

Some dear pastor friends of mine who lead a church in South Jersey have been in fervent prayer for 9 weeks via conference call and regularly taking communion (others are praying together online via Zoom or Skype or some other vehicle). But in their region many churches are not even making any effort to pray corporately. And I’m afraid this pattern is consistent nationwide. Thank God for the churches who are giving themselves to serious prayer in this evil hour, but why are so many not praying?

The short answer is lethargy.

The dictionary defines lethargy as a lack of energy or enthusiasm. It is a a pathological state of sleepiness or deep unresponsiveness and inactivity. Spiritually, prayerlessness is rooted in a lack of love.

“Now I beg you, brethren, through the Lord Jesus Christ, and through the love of the Spirit, that you strive together with me in prayers to God for me”… (Rom. 15:30)

Notice the expression, “that you strive together with me in prayers TO GOD for me…

This statement may seem obvious, but we pray TO GOD. So many forget the simplicity and potency of that truth. In other words, to pray to God is to put our total dependence on Him.

Honestly, prayerlessness is such a sin and a state of spiritual poverty in many churches today because it is an indicator of our independence FROM GOD.

In times like these, acting and living independently from God is spiritual suicide.

Jesus gave another reason for this lack of love:

“And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold” (Matt. 24:9).

With the COVID-19 pandemic birthing such fear in the world and now hate-filled lawlessness abounding nationwide, sadly the love of many is growing cold. This love is agape, the God-kind of love, found only in believers, who are to be the conscience and voice of the nation during such evil times, and who are to pray effectually to thwart off Satan and the hordes of hell who are wrecking havoc on America and the world.

How is it that the love of believers can grow cold in such times of trouble and crisis? It is the plan of Satan in every generation to lull the church to sleep where prayerlessness becomes the norm. A prayerless church in nearly worthless. They are no threat to Satan and his evil plans and schemes.

AN INCREDIBLE ENCOUNTER

Notice from the following incredible encounter that young prophet Jeremiah Johnson recently had that alerted and shook up the body of Christ in America and worldwide, who it is that does the most damage to Satan’s kingdom:

“On the night of May 30th, while praying and pacing over the United States in my home around 2 am, a demonic entity appeared right before me in an open vision. This type of encounter has only ever happened one other time while I was ministering in a foreign country in 2015. I have always engaged in this type of spiritual warfare while asleep and dreaming prophetically, but rarely if ever to this degree while awake.

“This demonic entity had a visible and deep scar underneath its right eye, but it also had the ability to mutate or rather change forms. I watched this being morph several times right in front of me, yet the gash below its right eye remained.

“It pointed its finger right in my face and said, I exist to deceive the whole world. Just as there are forerunners in the kingdom of God that go before the Son of Man, so I am a forerunning spirit in the kingdom of darkness that has been sent before the coming of the man of lawlessness.

It continued, “The scar underneath my right eye has come at the hands of the praying Church, for many of them in this hour have begun to detect our true plans and purposes to disrupt systems, divert attention, and release chaos in the land.”

A NEW BIRTHING IS COMING

The apostle Paul said this: “Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light. See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Eph. 5:14-16.

In my latest book, The Tumultuous 2020s And Beyond, I wrote of a spiritual dream my wife had where The Lord showed her that the true condition of many in the body of Christ was one of sleepiness and slumber—under-utilized, under-achieving, and not living up to its potential, power, and effectiveness. But the good news is that is about to change.

In this dream my wife was pregnant and the surgeon wanted to perform a C-section and cut her open, but someone told her that she didn’t have to give birth the old way as before, but instead she could give birth God’s way — in the Spirit. At that moment, beginning from her navel, there was an expansion of her belly that blossomed out.

A Prayer for Revival – IMPACT church

INTERPRETATION: There is a super strength in the Spirit for the body of Christ to give birth to a move of God and an awakening right now, but many only need to arise from their state of slumber.

In this dream my wife saw the body of Christ awakening from her slumber and literally get out of bed.

Church, I know right now it may not look like it, but this is our finest hour! Let us get out of bed and arise from our slumber, and give ourselves to prayer and the Lord’s purposes.

HEALTH UPDATE: DETAILS FOR OUR CARING FRIENDS AND THOSE INTERESTED

BERT

After having a stroke on March 19 I spent 4 days in ICU and another 12 days in a Rehab hospital. Once I was released from the  hospital, I started outpatient rehab at another nearby center twice a week for the entire month of April. My therapists told me I made great progress and regained much of my left-side-of-the-body strength and mobility, but I wasn’t satisfied. They said I was 80-90% restored, but I had asked the Lord for 110%. True restoration not only recovers what the devil stoled, but more than what you had before, not only physically but in other ways as well. Trials are a part of life, and they should make you better, stronger, and wiser.

Once I completed my rehab at the facility at the end of April, I continued rehab at home in May. You might be wondering what rehab consists of.  For me, It covers three areas of therapy:

  1. Physical therapy: I do a list of 14 exercises to strengthen the left side of my body including  balance and mobility, with two reps each about 3 times per week.
  2. Occupational therapy: I do several left hand and finger exercises such as turning coins over on a table in order to regain my motor skills 3 times per week.
  3. Speech therapy: I do some facial exercises along with speech repetition of various difficult phrases to loosen my left side facial muscles and mouth, which also loosens the brain, believe it or not.

The Lord has greatly helped me to stay with it, especially during challenging periods within this season of demonic attack. 

The month of May marked the completion of another month of therapy and even though I’m doing well, I intend to continue through most of the summer. I’m doing all this while still doing a lot of reading, writing, and praying as well as maintaining my home responsibilities, the most important of which is caring for Carolyn, although at this writing she is not here (more on her in a moment). However, for me the most critical element of all this therapy is getting sufficient rest and sleep because my brain is still healing. 

We will run our race, finish our course, fulfill our calling, and be back ministering soon. 

CAROLYN 

Here’s a little more background on Carolyn’s situation for those who do not know. On May 8 Carolyn had outpatient surgery to remove a low grade sarcoma from her left calf (about a 90 minute surgery) . A few days later the pathological findings discovered that the low grade sarcoma had become more aggressive and was now a grade 2 and even 3, and there were more of these cells that remained in her calf area. In other words, the surgeon didn’t get all of it, so he went back in and did a similar second surgery a week later on May 14, hoping he got all of it this time before scheduling reconstructive surgery (plastic surgery) for May 21.

As they began the third surgery they found a little more of those damnable lingering higher grade sarcoma cells and for the first 20 minutes they removed those before moving on to the reconstructive part, which took another 5+ hours. The reconstruction consisted of taking skin grafts from the upper part of Carolyn’s left leg and filling in the hole in her calf. Ouch! It hurts me just to write all this. I must say that Carolyn has been a trooper throughout this entire ordeal and God’s abundant grace and the effectual prayers of faithful, loving friends have sustained her.  

Presently she’s in a hospital 90 minutes north of here recovering and beginning a little of her own therapy. Today is her 12th day there. We just got news today that she will be transferred to a rehab facility probably in Concord, NH, which is much closer to home (about 45 minutes), so hopefully, if they allow visitors, I will be able to visit her, because she could be there as long as two weeks  [ I just called that facility and the no visitor policy is still in place )-:  ]

The surgeon told us from the beginning she would not be able to stand for the first two weeks of her recovery. She’s almost at that point. The recovery from this type of surgery is a very delicate process and much caution must be exercised to avoid tearing the skin, causing any drainage, or a lack of proper blood flow to the calf which could result in a setback, or God forbid, even more surgery to mend it. She is just now beginning to use the bathroom with assistance, which is a huge step forward. She is healing and improving by the day. I sure do miss her and it gets awful lonesome around here at home, but the Lord has provided great company and fellowship in this season of prayer and reflection.  

Great news, though!  It’s all temporary and it all shall pass. Our beloved son Daniel will be coming home for a lengthy stay and we’ll soon be together and reunited as a family. I can hardly wait.

Our little family will all be together soon.

One note: Daniel who has God-given dreams like his Momma, dreamt some time ago that the devil was going to try and kill both his parents. He made intercession for the situation before he knew anything about it. Praise the Lord! 

Finally, we cannot give enough thanks for the outpouring of love, support, and goodness we’ve received from dear friends. From the heart-felt prayers, the long phone calls from a few trusted friends who were privy to the many secret struggles we were enduring, to the groceries and meals some brought to our home, and the flowers Carolyn received in the hospital this week. We’ve always appreciated the body of Christ, but not quite as much as we do now. We need one another. 

They say every test produces a testimony. Well, we have a testimony to tell for the glory of God. In time we will tell more of it and see an increase of God’s wisdom and the anointing as we tell it. 

Abundant grace and multiplied peace to those who are presently facing divers trials and temptations. We pray for you, and will leave you with these scriptures that have become anchors to my own soul to encourage you:

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5).

“…He is faithful Who has promised! (Heb. 11:11)! 

Warm Jesus love to you all,

Bert and Carolyn

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s AND AMERICA’S LAST CALL

Could what the late prophet Kenneth E. Hagin saw in September 1950 vision is upon us? 

“I looked at the scroll again, and again I looked to see what I had read about. I saw the skyline of a large city. Looking closer, I saw the skyscrapers were burned out hulls. Portions of the city lay in ruins. It was not written that just one city would be destroyed, burned, and in ruins, but that there would be many such cities. 

The Lord then began to speak to him about America’s last call and the end of all things being at hand. 

I wrote these words nearly a month ago:

The recent Covid-19 pandemic has altered our nation, but will it be temporary? Remember, Pharaoh reneged on his promises to let God’s people go. He was not sincere. God is looking for sincerity and humility in America, in both repentance and our service to Him.

I’m warning you that if pride and arrogance continue to rule today’s church leaders and there is insincere repentance and we return to life as usual, there is something else that will come on the heels of this virus that will alter life in America again. I wish it were not so, and I hope I’m wrong. The effects of another national crisis may last longer than this one. Depending on how the church and people respond to the second thing (I don’t sense it will be another pandemic, but something else), there will be a third crisis that will change our nation for good, unless there is humility and heartfelt repentance that leads into a Spirit-filled movement and a national awakening.

Now we can see that the racial riots and senseless actions of violent thugs and looters over the unlawful death (really murder) of George Floyd that are sweeping  across our nation is indeed a second crisis.

Oh people, it’s time to serve the Lord with holy fear and trembling. To those who’ve been genuinely born again, God is our Father who loves us with an everlasting love, but don’t forget He is also a consuming fire, and it is a fearful thing to fall into His hands (Heb. 10:31). He loves even His enemies and desires to keep His hand of protection over our lives, families and nation, but we must cooperate with Him. He is patiently waiting for the precious fruit of the earth (James 5:7)and a glorious Church to arise from her anemic state and offer to Him the reward of His sacrifice.  Jesus is returning for such a Church – one who loves not their lives even unto death. He loves His church and the world so much and desires His best for all, but we must submit to Him or His protection will be removed off our nation even more, and Satan will continue to defile our land.

Here is a brother calling for a counter peacemaker movement:

We wake up this morning to a new trauma and an urgent invitation. Please make no mistake as you read headlines about “Protesters” and violence, survey the damage, and pick the broken pieces. Yesterday there were hundreds if not thousands of peaceful prayer vigils hosted by communities of faith. And there were hyped up but physically non-violent “protests” in different places which could be more likened to rallies.

However AFTER those, cities all over America were assaulted. There is a major difference between a protest and a riot. But what I witnessed late last night isn’t rioting. It was a calculated Anarchist attack by those who: 1. Have no hope 2. Believe there is NO value in non-violence 3. Are committed to violent overthrow of the present systems. 4. Possess no fear of God therefore possessing no foundation for internal restraint, moral governance, or the need to be governed. In sociology, a tipping point is a point in time when a group—or many group members—rapidly and dramatically change behavior by widely adopting a previously rare practice. This usually happens when the shelf life of what is standard practice, has expired or grown stale. WE ARE IN A TIPPING POINT.

Historically in America, these types of groups were considered “fringe” but today many of them have the loudest voice BECAUSE WE are not physically PRESENT. The number of black, white, Asian, Latino, and native Americans who DO NOT BELIEVE THOSE THINGS FAR OUTNUMBER those with anarchists ideas, and we are literally HANDING them the tipping point advantage.

I’m as upset and hurt by the failures of America and the police as the next man but this ENTIRE GAME is changing QUICKLY. People died last night and early this morning but the coming bloodshed will be far more grievous. I write this through dried out and blurry eyes, on less than 4 hours of rest as I attempt to keep rinsing the remnants of the tear gas that got into them. Myself and just a few of my friends stood, prayed, confronted, and tried to de-escalate the crisis as OUTSIDERS looted businesses, hurled rocks at the police, damaged properties, and RE-TRAUMATIZED my already deeply wounded city of Ferguson, Missouri.

Based not only on what I have known and experienced for many years, but what I have assessed from last night. (or I should say this morning) If MASSES are not mobilized as PEACEMAKERS in order to take control of the narrative within the next 24-72 hours; just as quickly as COVID-19 changed nations almost overnight, we will not recognize this country one week from today.

I’m going LIVE on @Civilrighteousness for the 8:18a est/7:18a morning rally in our #ISAIAH58fast and doing the DAY 2- PEACEMAKING devotional in the Field Action Guide.(you can download it for free at civilrighteousness.org)

THEN I want to share a strategy that I believe could actually significantly impact the trajectory of where this is headed if implemented immediately by even 5% of those who do not share Anarchist belief systems. Please check it out. — Jonathan Jermaine Thomas

Violent protest against police killing of George Floyd in NYC

I partly agree with Jonathan and applaud his valiant efforts. But we need more than a peace-making movement. We need a mushrooming prayer movement the likes of the prayer revival of 1830-31 that began with lunch time prayer meetings with an outpouring of heart-felt contrition and broken confession of people’s sins that swept through the churches and then the nation. We also need the fearless boldness, and firepower of Pentecost to kick us out of the four walls of our churches, and as Jonathan stated, be a presence in these cities. 

WHERE IS THE CHURCH?

Here’s what Mario Mario so succinctly stated yet again in his latest blog:

“Meanwhile, the true resistance—with the exception of a prophetic core— is asleep at the wheel. The army that holds the only answer to racial injustice—for the most part—doesn’t know who they are. They took the gold out of their message and replaced it with powerless sermons made of tin.

“Had there been more of the fire of God in the church, there would be less fires in the streets. If there was more of hell preached in the pulpit, there would be less hell being lived out in the inner city. The people with the solution and something relevant to say, are apologizing instead of evangelizing. The people with the bankrupt human remedy who have nothing to say, are declaring it with conviction.”

Mario is right! The people with no remedy or solution tell a lie with conviction while the Church tells the truth so poorly. We have got to do better! I believe God always has a Divine response to such evil and destruction in our nation, and it is always through His glorious Body and mighty army that it must come. We need the supernatural activity of God right now working though His people. Nothing else will work.

HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD: A MODERN HANDMAIDEN’S VISION

As I was praying, Jesus said something to me that shook me to my core. He said, “what is coming into the earth is My PRIZE.” He was telling me the change coming to the church will be the reward of His suffering. I then saw a vision of the great army of soldiers. On each of the soldier’s foreheads, I saw the word “holiness” burned into the skin. I knew at that moment that the Holiness came through the fire. The Lord is raising up a holy people. He is returning for a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle. He can’t return until the Church is bearing His glory.

I went into travail. I groaned when He spoke to me. I felt His longing to return and His longing for His people to be the TRUE Church. In the current state of the church, there is no way he can come back. His blood purchased so much more than what we are walking in. He is ready to release glory. First, repentance must happen. Then the church must humble themselves and consecrate themselves unto the Lord. He will then mark them as Holy. A day is coming very soon for this army of holy warriors to arise and shine. The hordes of hell are licking their chops, thinking that they have won. The glorious Bride is about to come out of her chamber. Having encountered the King and received holiness and glory. The Bride is comprised of sons and daughters of the King. The ones that Jesus said would be engrafted in the vine and their branches will bear fruit. They will ask what they will and it will be done for them. They will operate in the greater works. The sons and daughters of righteousness will rise. They will arise and shine and give the Father all the glory!

Holiness unto the Lord - Vineyard - YouTube

In this encounter I saw minister friends I knew, and many others. They will have mouths like trumpets that will blast the truth. The truth of heaven will sound like an alarm to many lost. The blasts of truth will be so strong they will resurrect the dead. Many will be delivered out of darkness into the light. The truth is what Jesus intended for the church to proclaim. They will bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim liberty to the captives, and release prisoners. They will execute the Law of Christ in the earth. I sensed there will be entire nations and cities turning to the Lord as the sons and daughters herald the alarm of the King. I saw a great harvest of souls for the King.

The history of the church will be forever changed by the days ahead. The other day He gave me Habakkuk 1:5.

“Look among the nations and watch—be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you”.

The coming days are going to blow our minds. It’s about to get crazy good. I sensed there are more changes and things coming like this pandemic. He has a plan that has been unfolding since the beginning. The earth is shaking. May we be holy unto Him. May the Lamb receive the reward of His suffering! — L. P.

THE REALITY OF CHRIST AND HIS KINGDOM SHOULD BE GROWING IN YOUR HEART DURING THIS PRESENT PANDEMIC

A crisis as such we’ve been presently in can make one bitter or better, more carnal or more consecrated, more earthly, worldly, and temporal minded, or more heavenly and eternally-minded.

Question: Are you closer to Jesus now than you were before this pandemic? Is He more real to you? Is the reality of His kingdom more important to you now?

Personally, I really enjoy watching sports, but I can honestly tell you that I haven’t missed them during this favorite sports season when there are usually exciting rounds of playoffs and a new season of baseball beginning. The Lord is doing a deep work in many hearts during this pandemic. The reality of Christ’s invisible kingdom is coming to the forefront of many believers’ hearts and lives.

This is one gigantic difference between the early Church and today’s Church.

“Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also” (Acts 12:1-3).

“And when Herod was about to bring him out, that night Peter was sleeping…” (v. 6).

Question: Would you be able to sleep the night before your execution? Peter did. Some could say that it was the gift of faith in operation, but I also believe that Jesus was so real to Peter, he didn’t care if he died and departed to be with Him. He was missing his Master.

The post resurrection appearances of Jesus to His disciples made them to know He was alive, and no longer hindered by time and space as He went back and forth from heaven and to earth and then back to heaven.

“Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven” (Acts 1:9-11).

john lautermilch | Jesus Taken Up Into Heaven Acrylic Print By ...This is the same reality we’ve got to come to as believers in Jesus. When Jesus rose from the dead, the disciples witnessed the power of an endless and indestructible life. It forever changed them to fully pursue Christ and His kingdom, and be no longer bound to this world and all its’ enticements, entanglements, and allurements. This is the same journey of transformation we must be on.

Jesus as God the Son had no beginning and no end, just like eternity. Hungry and thirsty believers can access eternity through Christ who went before us as a Forerunner begin the veil (Heb. 6:19-20). How exciting!

The first Adam closed the door to the paradise of Eden, but Jesus opened it again when the veil was rent in two.

“ Now it [was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45 Then the sun was [darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two” (Luke 23:44-45).

It’s amazing that the penitent thief went into paradise with Jesus. Jesus opened the way to a new garden of Eden.

The post resurrection appearances of Jesus unveiled a mystery to His disciples, not only that Jesus was no longer dead, but that He was now alive with access to travel between heaven and earth, with zero limitations of time and space. Jesus was giving us a peek into the eternal future of the saints, who shall live and travel in both realms.

To a measure, we can learn to live that way now in both the natural and spiritual world, because we are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!

And so we need not fear this pandemic or any other crisis that will come in these last days, and there will be many more, as Jesus told us. Instead, let us focus on the transformation that God wants to do in us to learn to live in two worlds—both the natural and the spiritual world. This is the privilege of those believers who are hungry and yearning to follow the pattern of Jesus, the Son of God, who lived in both worlds, even in His earth walk.

Heaven and Earth Program Notes | Cappella Romana

Jesus learned to walk in the NOW with His Father and we must learn to o the same—to access the realm of eternity and not be limited by time and space. Jesus is in the NOW. He is the Great I AM, and is always speaking to us from the eternal NOW. We must not relegate HIM to the future, and we must not limit Him to what He was to His disciples in His earthly ministry. We are in a different time now in the final hours of the last days. Many spectacular manifestations are just on the horizon for us—divine appearances, angelic visitations, people being translated supernaturally from one geographical place to another as Philip, the evangelist was (Acts 8), great signs, wonders, and marvels are about to happen.

Let us not focus too much on last days crisis, plagues, pandemics, pestilences, etc. Jesus said these things would come. Instead, let us keep eternity in our hearts and know that God is above time and space, and want to speak and communicate with us from the eternal now. We can experience this kind of intimacy with Him all the time, as we learn to cultivate the new garden of Eden in our hearts— acres and acres of it.

This is what it means to live our lives in Christ where we are seated in heavenly places.

May God give the reader understanding.

HEALTH UPDATE

Carolyn’s first two surgeries to remove a low grade malignant sarcoma which was upgraded to a grade 2, then 3 from her calf area of her leg was very successful. The surgeons were really pleased and saved the nerve, which was critical. We came together in faith and agreement on the following for these first two surgeries and the second segment of it, which I will tell you of in a moment, we will agree for the same.

This is what we have asked in faith and in agreement for: Surgical wisdom, guidance, and pinpoint precision and accuracy, and that every hand that touches her before, during,  and after the surgery is anointed by God, with no complications, no adverse effects, and a quick supernatural recovery.

The second segment of the surgery is plastic surgery to fill in the hole that the sarcoma left. It is a very delicate process involving skin grafts, and usually takes about 5 hours. Unlike the first two surgeries, which were outpatient, Carolyn will remain under observation for about five days and nights in the hospital. This second segment of that surgery was today May 21, and we just received news that every detail we asked and agreed for in faith for the reconstructive plastic surgery was granted. Praise God!!! Due to the visitor policy I will not be able to see her until she is released from the hospital, probably Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. The hospital is 90 miles north of our home, so we will be driving up to bring her home then. 

Under His overcoming grace and glory

BERT’S RECOVERY

Personally, I continue to progress and improve week by week. The Lord is helping me to balance sleep, rest, and exercise, especially the speech, occupational, and physical therapies, and not overdo it, which is my tendency. I do walk outside when it’s warm and the sun is out, which is my favorite thing to do. I love the fresh air and being out in nature more than I ever have before. I appreciate the simple things in life that we take for granted a lot more. Also, I’m eating really healthy meals, and since the day of the stroke, I have dropped 25 pounds, which is a great thing. 

I can also tell you this: The Word of God and the Holy Spirit have never been as precious to me, and my love and relationship with Jesus and the Father have grown much during this trial. I’ve been saying this from the beginning, but both Carolyn and I will come out of this stronger, better, and wiser than ever before to fulfill our calling, run the rest of our race, and finish our course. 

Thank you to everyone who has loved us, prayed for us, and supported us in any way during this time. The body of Christ has also become most precious to both of us during this most challenging time in our lives and history in God. 

We love and appreciate each one of you very much!

Under His Overcoming Grace and Glory,

Bert and Carolyn 

Convergence of These Fearful Visions From Prophets of the Last Century Is Upon Us

In 1927 Smith Wigglesworth prophesied:

There must be special preparation for the return of Christ and at least half of all believers will be totally unprepared. We have to see that these days have to come before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away. I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature and preparing them for a greater thing and causing them to be ready for translation.

TOP 10 AFTER LIFE TESTIMONIES from Jesus Christ is here NOW! on ...

This is the day of purifying. This is the day of holiness. This is the day of separation. This is the day of waking. O God, let us wake today! Let the inner spirit wake into consciousness that God is calling us.

Bert Farias's Blog, page 10

In 1950, the late Kenneth E. Hagin received this divinely granted appearance:

I looked at the scroll again, and again I looked to see what I had read about. I saw the skyline of a large city. Looking closer, I saw the skyscrapers were burned-out hulls. Portions of the city lay in ruins. It was not written that just one city would be destroyed, burned and in ruins, but that there would be many such cities.

The scroll was written in the first person, and seemed as if Jesus Himself were speaking. I read: “America is receiving her last call. Some nations already have received their last call and never will receive another.”

Then, in larger print, it said, “THE TIME OF THE END OF ALL THINGS IS AT HAND.” This statement was repeated four or five times. Jesus also said this was the last great revival. He went on to say: “All the gifts of the Spirit will be in operation in the church in these last days, and the church will do greater things than even the early church did. It will have greater power, signs and wonders than were recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.”

I believe in visions we have seen and experienced many healings, but we will now behold amazing miracles that have not been seen before. Jesus continued: “More and more miracles will be performed in the last days which are just ahead, for it is time for the gift of the working of miracles to be more in prominence. We now have entered into the era of the miraculous.

Many of my own people will not accept the moving of my Spirit, and will turn back and will not be ready to meet Me at my coming. Many will be deceived by false prophets and miracles of satanic origin. But follow the Word of God, the Spirit of God and Me, and you will not be deceived. I am gathering my own together and am preparing them, for the time is short.”

Again in 1963, Hagin saw this: ( I included this entire vision as a chapter in my new book, The Tumultuous2020s and Beyond.

21 Best GOD'S Supernatural Healings for Mankind! images | John g ...


For there came a dark hand up out of the ocean from the east, even from the Atlantic Ocean. It came up out of the sea as a hand and as it rose up into the air it became a dark cloud and it filled the whole atmosphere. Yea, and it swept in like a storm at sea. And I said, “Oh Lord! Oh Lord! Oh Lord! What’s the meaning of this?” And He spake unto me and said,

“Son, that is the darkness of atheistic communism that is sweeping across the nation—even in the minds of men in high places and politicians with great power. And this nation shall not grow more strong and you shall not have more liberty than you have now, but liberties that you’ve known and you’ve seen shall be seized and taken from you.”

And I looked again, and I could see upon the mountain a blotch, as though a bottle of ink had been spilled and spread out over several states in the south and east. And then I looked and I could see spots splotched all over the map and I said, “Lord, what meaneth this?”

And He said,

“Communistic inspired hatred among races shall cause greater turmoil than your nation has seen heretofore. Yea, it is not the will of God but men’s hearts are perverse and they walk without the love of God and seek to have their own way. And so it shall be worse than you have seen.”

Hagin also saw this:

And so then I looked into the spirit realm and I saw falling upon that mountain a ball of fire from heaven. The closer to the Earth, the bigger it got, and then when it came to the Earth it divided into small balls or sparks of fire, and it fell upon men. And I saw an army of men rise up, and it seemed as though their hands were fire. And there sat upon their heads a tongue of fire. (When I first saw it, it seemed like their whole heads were on fire but it was tongues of fire leaping.) And I said, “What meaneth this?”

And He said, “Before the worst shall come and the day of darkness encompasses there will be those who shall go and who shall carry the fullness of My truth and the fire, not only to the states of this nation but to many other places. For there is a work that must be done, first spiritually, before the Lord shall come.

“Now prepare ye your hearts, for the time is at hand and the beginning is now; and ye shall see and ye shall know for the hand of the Lord is upon you and many of you shall be used in these last days and the work shall progress.”

In 1965 Stanley Frodsham, companion to Wigglesworth, prophesied this:

With great judgments will I plead with the population of this country. Great darkness is coming upon the countries that have heard My gospel but no longer walk in it. My wrath shall come upon them. The darkness shall be so great and the anguish so sore that men shall cry out for death and shall not find it. There shall be a lingering death, famine and great catastrophes.

My wrath shall be manifested against all ungodliness. It shall come with great intensity. You have known my love but have not experienced My wrath or My severity. My judgments are literal and not a thing to be passed over lightly.

1965 Prophecy by Stanley Frodsham at Elim Bible Institute | Voice ...

Realize the severity of My judgments and My intense anger against the sin in My household. My judgments shall begin in My house, for I will cleanse My house that it be not a partaker of My wrath against the iniquities of the cities. Before I visit the nations in judgment; I will begin at My house. When I do cause My wrath to come upon the cities of the world, My people shall be separate. I desire a people without spot or wrinkle, and such will be preserved by Me in the time of My wrath, which will be coming upon all iniquity and unrighteousness. (this is the reason I wrote the book, Cleansing The Temple, because judgment begins in God’s house first). 

In 1968, a 90-year-old woman in Norway saw this:

An old woman of 90 from Valdres in Norway had a vision from God in 1968. The evangelist Emanuel Minos had meetings (services) where she lived. He had the opportunity to meet her, and she told him what she had seen. He wrote it down but thought it to be so unintelligible that he put it in a drawer. Now, almost 30 years later, he understands he has to share the vision with others.

The woman from Valdres was a very alert, reliable, awake and credible Christian, with a good reputation among all who knew her. This is what she saw:

I saw the time just before the coming of Jesus and the outbreak of the Third World War. I saw the events with my natural eyes. I saw the world like a kind of a globe and saw Europe, land by land. I saw Scandinavia. I saw Norway. I saw certain things that would take place just before the return of Jesus, and just before the last calamity happens, a calamity the likes of which we have never before experienced.

She mentioned four waves. For her complete vision go here.

And finally, in 2004, Oral Roberts saw a marvel that shook him:

Suddenly, in the clouds in the skies above New York City and the east part of the United States, and which hung there for quite some time and then spread out across America, without touching the ground, and then God diffused it away from America and sent it out to the nations of the earth. And I saw and I heard. What did I see? I saw something coming down from above: Smoke and vapor and blood, or it looked like that to my eyes, to my spiritual eyes.

To read his complete vision, go here.

We are living in a time when the fulfillment of these things is straining at the gate to come forth. The day is nearing when it will suddenly burst forth. Right now, the Lord is holding these things back to give the body time to prepare, but too many are wasting that time in false confidence, compromise and complacency.

We are in a process of cleansing the temple so that when the worst comes, the church shall be separate, and her impact shall be greater in quality and quantity.
