A NEW MANIFESTO FOR A NEW BREED OF 21ST CENTURY PREACHER

“Your young men shall see visions…” (Acts 2:17).

“But he (Stephen), being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God, and said, ‘Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!’ Then they cried out with a loud voice, stopped their ears, and ran at him with one accord; and they cast him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul” (Acts 7:55-58).

Stephen was a young man of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit, faith, and wisdom. Most of us would be thrilled to be noted for just one or two of these godly qualities. As we will soon discover, Stephen possessed not only these, but would be given more.

Stephen was a holy vessel of a wholly new order effecting disorder among the self-righteous crowd. He was fit for the Master’s use but unfit for the religious system of his day. God raised him up in a blaze of great persecution. Stephen answered the call and sealed his fiery message with his own blood.

Will there be end time persecution in America as great as that which was in Jerusalem long ago? And will there again be Stephens among us who have grandeur visions of heaven and of the glory of God? And will some be killed for telling the truth?

We have reason to believe that Stephen’s forgiveness of his accusers and murderers was instrumental in bringing forth new birth in another young man named Saul. As Stephen’s life and earthly destiny ended with visions of heaven, Saul’s new life would soon begin with the same. And as Stephen suffered this great persecution so Saul would suffer much more.

Saul became Paul because Stephen cried out for his forgiveness. The witnesses at his death laid down their clothes at Saul’s feet, but it was Stephen’s loud praying that would later lay down new paths for those same feet.

Stephen’s violent departure led to Saul’s violent entry into the kingdom of God. Will this kind of violence be more frequent and mark these last days? Where are the voices of the spiritually violent witnesses, prayer-s, and preachers that are producing violent conversions?

Besides the blameless character of this young man Stephen, there are three more radical qualities which distinguish him from most modern day preachers. I believe these qualities to be the stamp of a true warrior and a new breed of revivalist that will prepare the way for the Lord’s soon return. Here they are:

1. His message was irresistible (Acts 6:10).
2. His miracles were great (Acts 6:8).
3. His martyrdom was violent (Acts 7:59-60).

Can there be any greater heaven demanding and hell busting qualities than these? They convey both alarm and assault to Satan and his demons. They cause quaking and trembling in his darkest regions, and glory and rejoicing in highest of heavens.

Ministry gifts must be unwrapped through prayer. Birth must be given to a new breed of preachers on the earth in this final hour.

I believe that the coming apostolic ministries of our day will be carriers of true revival. Like Stephen of old (Acts 6:8-10) they will be full of faith and power and do great wonders and signs among the people, while speaking with an irresistible wisdom and Spirit. They will not count their lives dear to themselves but instead will be utterly abandoned to God’s eternal purposes.

The combination of the deeply convicting repentance preaching of one like Charles Finney and the daring, miracle-working faith of Smith Wigglesworth will bring a mighty apostolic anointing and authority that has been lacking in recent times. It will ignite the common man to carry that witness into the marketplace. (This is an excerpt from my book, Passing On The Move Of God To The Next Generation).

Our books are forerunners to personal holiness, the move of God, and the return of the Lord. They also combat the departure from the faith and the turning away from the truth we are seeing in our day. The Real Gospel, The Real Jesus, The Real Salvation, and  The Real Spirit Of Revival are especially strategic in trumping the many falsehoods spreading in the modern day Church.

GREAT ENCOURAGEMENT AND WARNING FROM SMITH WIGGLESWORTH FOR THESE END OF DAYS

Here is the word that was given by Smith Wigglesworth to Lester Sumrall in 1939.

Smith Wigglesworth to Lester Sumrall in 1939 (WWII ready to break out):  With tears rolling down his face Smith cried saying,

“I probably won’t see you again now. My job is almost finished.” As he continued to pray he cried, “I see it, I see it!”
Brother Sumrall asked, “What do you see, what do you see?”

He said, “I see a healing revival coming right after World War II. It’ll be so easy to get people healed. I see it! I see it! I won’t be here for it, but you will be.” And there was a great healing revival right after the war.

He continued to prophesy, “I see another one, I see people of all different denominations being filled with the Holy Ghost.” That was the Charismatic renewal. God raised up movements and ministries during that era such as the Full Gospel businessmen.

Then Brother Wigglesworth prophesied again and said, “I see another move of God. I see auditoriums full of people, coming with notebooks. There will be a wave of teaching on faith and healing.” We did experience that wave he saw, and men called it the Word of Faith movement.

Then he prophesied farther into the future that we are in now, “After that, after the third wave,” he started sobbing. “I see the last day revival that’s going to usher in the precious fruit of the earth. It will be the greatest revival this world has ever seen! It’s going to be a wave of the gifts of the Spirit. The ministry gifts will be flowing on this planet earth. I see hospitals being emptied out, and they will bring the sick to churches where they allow the Holy Ghost to move.” Now that is super exciting!

SOBER WARNING

Wigglesworth also warned of the increasing spiritual darkness and gross darkness as well as false movements and doctrines of devils within the carnal and compromising church, such as the false grace message and false gospel.

“All the saints of God that get the real vision of this wonderful transformation are recognizing every day that the world is getting worse and worse and worse and ripening for judgment. And God is bringing us to a place where we that are spiritual are having  a clear vision that we must at any cost put off the works of darkness. We must be getting ourselves ready for that glorious day when we see Christ.

“These are the last days. What will be the strongest confirmation for me to bring to you the reality that we are living in the last days?

“There are in the church two classes. There are  believers which are disobedient, or I ought to say, there are children which are saved by the power of God which are still choosing to live as disobedient children. And then there are children which are just the same saved by the power of God, but who all the time are longing to be more obedient.

“In this fact, Satan has a great part to play. It is on this factor in these last years that some of us have been brought to great grief at the first opening of the door with the brazen fact to fleshly sinful forces. And we heard the word come rushing, like the wind to a “new theology” that is damnable, devilish, evil power that teaches you can be disobedient children, and still be right with God.

“As soon as this was noised abroad everywhere, this “new theology,” everybody began to say, ”What is this new theology?” It’s an absolute lie from the devil!”

We must be heed these serious warnings and be so ever watchful and prayerful in this hour.

The spirit of this age is to get you to believe a lie. If you believe a lie you cannot believe the truth. When once you are contaminated with a lie against the Word of God, He sends you strong delusion that you shall believe a lie. God’s Word is your only hope to be rescued from this deceiving spirit. God’s Word, which is being diminished and minimized by many in these evil days, is the final authority of truth for all times and for all ages.

When we see these things which are coming to pass, what do we know? We know the time is at hand. The fig tree is budding as we see these false prophets and these lying spirits increasing.

Let us stay strong in the truth of God’s Word and keep moving with the true manifestation of the Spirit in this final hour.

THOUGHTS ON FASTING: YOU LOVE EVERYONE YOU LOOK AT

“Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him… (Mark 10:21).”

Deeper and more consistent fasting leads to a transformation of love. Perhaps this is the most forgotten benefit of fasting.

The outward man cracks like a shell. The inward man’s life oozes out. The heart softens and melts as you submit to Jesus. Intimacy with Him becomes your obsession. Beholding His magnificent beauty becomes your quest.

Fasting is hard on the flesh but removes impurities and hindrances that hide Jesus from you. It allows you to see Jesus in a magnified way and to sense His Spirit more acutely.

When you fast and pray the right way you see beyond the facade of religion and the veil of hypocrisy more distinctly. You are not easily fooled by the hype, glitter, and the showmanship of the flesh that is prevalent in ministry.

Fasting is not the cure-for-all, but it’s certainly one of the most misunderstood and neglected practices of the carnal church. And I believe that when it is done for the right reasons and with pure motives it is the master key to the impossible. At first it is hard for the novice or the fleshly ruled Christian to do, but by reason of use, practice, and experience it can be a much lighter burden when you see the fruit and results it brings.

MORE UNDERSTANDING

When you receive the revelation of how much of a hindrance your flesh is to the life of Christ within you, you will fast, especially when your spiritual hunger is sufficient. One of the great purposes of fasting is to bring forth that life and manifest Christ’s character on the earth.

When you allow His life to exceedingly grow in you through fasting, many burdens you’ve been carrying for years and decades will be removed from you. All that is not the will of the Father will begin to be stripped from your flesh and soul, and your spirit will gain the ascendancy.

The life of Christ was sown as a seed in your heart when you were born again, and the Father’s great desire is to bring forth that seed unto full harvest until you are transformed into His image. Fasting is a great purging tool to accelerate this process.

One caution: Never base your worth or value in the kingdom of God on whether you fast or not, but also understand that the perfect will of God in your life will not be accomplished without it. The Father’s love for you remains stedfast whether you choose to implement fasting into your life or not, but without it you will fall short of walking on the highest path of the upward calling of God in Christ Jesus for your life (Phil. 3:14).

You see, until certain areas of your flesh are purged you cannot even begin to take up your cross and follow Jesus in order to fulfill His perfect will for your life.

Some believers understand the positional truths of the physical body being declared dead because of sin, and your spirit being made a righteous new creation because of the life of Christ within you (Rom. 8:10). But many do not understand that fasting enforces these positional truths in your life, so that you can walk above the realm of the works of man and begin to operate in the works of God.

Fasting greatly enhances the power of the Spirit in your life to manifest the perfect will of God. Your own will and aspirations begin to die when you truly fast, and His perfect will becomes your desire.

Fasting is one of the great secrets of transformation in the believer’s character. Yes, it is difficult on the flesh, but the power of the blood of Jesus has gone before you and will strengthen you in your weakness, cleanse you, purge you, and transform you. Call on His blood in times of fasting.

Consistent fasting in your life will progressively and eventually bring you into the mind of Christ as you spend time in prayer and the Word also. A new man will emerge within you and what appeared at first to be a heavy yoke will indeed be easy and light.

You will be transformed into a deeper love walk, and be led more perfectly in the way of the Lord; light will break forth on your path, and even your health shall spring forth speedily (Is. 58). That which right now seems like a heavy and grievous affliction to you will be as nothing compared to the exceedingly eternal weight of glory that fasting will work in you (2 Cor. 4:17).

January is a month of prayer and fasting for many of you. I hope these powerful truths inspire you to continue.

Abundant grace to each of you in your journey.

PRAYER AND PROPHECY CONCERNING THE CLEANSING OF CHRIST’S CHURCH

While waiting on the Lord in prayer before an evening meeting in a particular city the communications of the Spirit of God began to flow…(Carolyn and I recorded it and then transcribed it). For the last several years this has been our pattern and mode of operation. We have 100s of pages of prayer notes, or prayer jottings, as we like to call them. We’ve been praying about redesigning our blog and calling it The Prayer Jotter, and also writing a book on the wisdom of God that has come forth during these special times. Following is a lengthy one for spiritually minded people:    

And even here you know something is not right and you’ve been picking it up in your spirit, but you’re not seeing anything for it’s been masked…

It’s very skilled at being deceptive…it’s veiled in religion…a mask of religion… and its only a certain kind of utterance and power that is going to break through this very strong veil of deception.

Tongues…

I see that Lord, so we can’t go in light and fluffy for it’s all disguised in that religious display.

More tongues…

So this then is why the demonstration of My power, not with enticing words of man’s speech, is necessary here (1 Cor. 2:4-5), for this mask that has been here knows what to say, knows what to look like on a Sunday, knows how to pretend and is very good at it, but their faith must be established in the power of God.

We just surrender now to the Holy Ghost and power, to the One who shows us Your heart and Your will, shows us the sick and diseased, and shows us and penetrates through with the preaching that cuts to the heart, and separates the soul.

Hebrews 4:12-13  For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.”

Lots of tongues, heaving…

This utterance must come forth to break through the veil of religion, to break through that deceptiveness that is here…and what Ananias and Sapphira were trying to do, because they saw people doing it so they did it, too.

But the anointing and the power and the glory were too great at that time to allow deception. That lie could not walk past the anointing and the one who was walking in the spirit of truth (Peter), for it not to be recognized as a covering and a veil to bring in an impure spirit, a falsehood, and a lie.

And what was going on at that time? There was such a great awareness of the truth of Jesus Christ; there was such an anointing and a power in the body.

There were miracles going on outside the church walls with the shadow of Peter…there was demonstration and power that was being seen, yes, that was going on. The demonstration of the Spirit of the Lord was upon My people, My ministers, so much so that they didn’t need to be in a building; they just had to walk the streets and there I was moving. Yes, that same power that raised Christ from the dead was upon them and could move even away from them and the shadow, yes, even the shadow, which was My Spirit, was healing and delivering and moving through My apostles at that time.

Tongues…

Yes, and even the preaching that came forth was causing hearts to decide, either to disbelieve and oppose, and get angry at the words coming forth, or repent, be glad and rejoice.

Can you not see what it looks like? Can you not understand what it looks like when I am moving? There is power and there is an utterance and a word that causes there to always be a dividing, and you said it through your own words and through your own mouth that I either make them glad, sad, or mad.

This is evidence of My Spirit moving and My Spirit in dominance and the authority on My ministers of reconciliation.

Tongues…

You see it’s almost like He’s highlighted this morning the beginning of Acts where it started, how there was an anointing, how the Holy Spirit first came through a people who prayed and were consecrated and waited on Him, and He came like a whirlwind and the people automatically went out of the upper room and into the streets…that is automatic and that is something you should see and recognize, even in the body today.

When the Holy Spirit is poured out people cannot stay in the pew; they have to go out to the streets for there’s an activation.

And so you have seen, and so don’t you remember when you went to_________? Aahh, I remember when we were moving in the Spirit at _____________ and how gifts were activated and how some started waking up when the Spirit was released, and yet that leader stopped it because of being in control, and all of a sudden it was all stopped. And what was the release and what happened out of that?

It burst, and instead of life, it brought forth adultery in the body and it brought forth coldness and people walking away; it brought forth people being taken away, this marriage being destroyed, this one going off into false doctrine, that one moving away from God and becoming cold and it brought forth a dry cold monument of religion.

Whenever someone or something comes to stop (a move of God) that is the result…the work of Satan, the work of death…but oh remember how it all started and how they let the Holy Spirit move and Peter got up and preached, and the word cut to their hearts and there were so many that came to the Lord and believed, and then there was a movement in homes.

But understand what tried to come with Ananias and Sapphira was disguised in religion, disguised with a mask of pretension, but because of the sensitivity of the ministers (Peter), they were watching and they saw it as soon as it moved by. There was a discernment that came because the Holy Spirit was in charge and He recognized in the disguise that which was false.

But oh how many today would allow Ananias and Sapphira to walk in the door with their pay checks, with their checkbooks, with their debit cards and credit cards, and their bank accounts, and say: “Oh, God told us to give this to you pastor, and oh they would be received and yet it was a messenger of Satan; it was a pride that got in, and then there comes the control through the money…a control of what goes on through the Spirit because of the money.

Tongues…

And so I see the disguise that’s gone in and infiltrated the church in this area.

They know what to say, they know what to do, they know how to come in, and make havoc of pure things that may have started with the right heart, but oh…

They know how to raise their hands, they know how to dress, they know how to move, they know what to say…

It’s a disguise I say.

But now me and Bert pray, for we have a little bit of understanding now. You told us to come in demonstration, for how will they even pay attention, how will their faith even be in the words that are spoken, except they first see the power of God—the pure power of God.

Thank You for this revelation and understanding and what we’re dealing with in this religious spirit.

Now let’s give place to praying in the the Spirit together…

Bert:

Honest with God, honest with God…the honesty and unveiling starts with God; it starts with an individual’s relationship with the Lord, it starts with transparency, it starts with an unveiled face, it starts by beholding the glory of the Lord as in a mirror…it starts vertically with every believers’s relationship with the Lord…for you cannot hide from God…you can put a mask on but He sees through the mask.

For nothing is veiled but all is open and naked before Him with whom we have to give account and every creature is naked before God. For the sharp sword of His Word cuts through the soul and spirit and the joints and marrow and discerns the thoughts and intents of the heart.

You cannot hide from Him!

So there is the need to walk before Him in purity and integrity and honesty without defilement and without guile and without hypocrisy and without malice, and as babes in Christ, desiring the sincere milk of the Word so that you may grow thereby.

As babes, as babes…for He hides His wisdom from the wise and prudent, but He reveals them unto babes, so as babes, desire the pure milk of the Word. And receive the wisdom, yea, even the hidden secrets of God.

Tongues…lots of tongues…

I’m reminded that the true apostolic and the true prophetic is in this manner—that it turns the hearts of the people towards God; it turns the motives of the hearts of the people towards God, and that which is veiled and masked is ripped apart, so that they see even as they should see and are known even as they’re known, not even just through a glass darkly, but in the Spirit they see, even as God sees what He desires for them to see at that moment and at that time.

So I see where we forget that that operation is supernatural and is such an integral and critical part of the apostolic and the prophetic even as you just said when ___________ ministered at __________, and his opening statements ripped a veil and ripped a mask off the fake and phony carnal prosperity gospel and it turned the motives of people’s hearts immediately toward God,  and it put them face to face with God and with pure truth, and then they decide.

For too many have spoken smooth words from smooth lips when there’s been war in their hearts.

Oh but the truly apostolic and prophetic even as seen in the early apostles and Peter in the early Church, oh, it ripped that mask and that veil and political talk (correctness) right off of people.

So I see the Church has had a mask, and many things have been veiled even as You have shown us today, and the great need is for true apostles and prophets to come with strong words and a certain kind of utterance that would penetrate and unmask and unveil those things which are hidden and that are hindering the Church and God’s people and pure truth from seeping through…hindering the true move of the Spirit of God, for the Spirit cannot be yoked with darkness, and what manner of agreement has God with Baal, and how can we dine at the table of God and the table of devils, and what accord has light with darkness?

So you see even the need of the hour, even as you’re beginning to write that My house shall no more be called a den of thieves but a house of prayer.

So you see that there must be a cleansing and there must be a purification before the true power can really come, for if the power comes without the purification the deception would grow and people would say, “Oh, God is pleased with us for He’s demonstrating His power and pouring out His Spirit and therefore He must be pleased,” and then people would continue to walk on in their blindness and in their deception.

For I will not pour out My power on a church that is blemished and full of pride and sin and deception…no, no, no for that would only further add to the deception that already is.

So there must be a purification, a purifying, a sanctifying, a cleansing of all the impurities that have been veiled and masked.

WE MUST FIND OUR WAY INTO THE HOLY OF HOLIES

We were in a missions prayer meeting recently and I heard these words:

“The Holy of Holies is the deepest part of My heart.”

As we were praying for unreached people groups I saw the faces representing all human beings that have ever lived on planet earth. I saw God’s great love for each one. I saw that He had made provision for all of them to live with Him forever. I saw the uttermost parts of the earth where many had not been reached or engaged with the gospel. I saw the great struggles of humanity. I saw them as if walking through a hot desert with a load of goods being carried on their backs. They were slumped over with weariness and heavy burdens of hardship. It broke my heart. I was seeing them the way God sees them.

Your own heart will break and melt, too when any aspect of the deepest part of God’s heart is unveiled to you. When His unfathomable love for humanity is revealed to you it turns you away from self-centeredness. You will take on more of the Lord’s nature as people start becoming the object of your love. You reach out to help them as meeting their needs becomes your joy. Your meat and drink is doing the will of the Father and finishing His work (John 4:34).

It is in those intimate moments in the Holy of Holies when the Lord speaks to you and teaches you His heart and ways that you are most alive. You are one with His heart. You burn with His fire when you hear His living word and the Scriptures are opened unto you.

“And they said one to another, did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?” (Lk. 24:32)

This is the greatest need of humanity. This is the greatest need of the Church—to know and actually feel God’s heart. In this way we are one with Him and we abide in Him. We are filled with His Spirit and the ministry of Jesus flows so naturally out of us, and His will is fulfilled in our lives. Once we receive God’s Spirit all of us have access into this secret place.

All of my life I’ve consciously or unconsciously been led to this place called the Holy of Holies. At times I didn’t know what it was that kept gnawing at me when I couldn’t find complete satisfaction and total fulfillment any other way. It was the Holy of Holies calling me in. It was the Holy Spirit wanting to get me in there. It is always our flesh that stands in the way and hinders us.

In the last several years of my life this has been my constant driving passion—to abide in the secret place. It is not necessarily a geographical place where you pray, but a place in your heart. It is there where you learn God’s ways and you become a friend of God. I am determined not to leave this earth until I learn to live as a friend of God every single day. It is my constant pressing as it was for Paul in his latter days.

“But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ” (Phil. 3:7-8).

The excellence of God’s holy intimate knowledge was Paul’s quest. This revelation led him to count all things loss and pursue a place of death to himself in order to gain Christ and His resurrection power.

“That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death…” (v. 10)

It also led him to this ongoing pressing attitude:

“…but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me…I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (v. 12, 14).

It is this pressing attitude that will lead you “to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:19).

Oh beloved, to be filled with all the fullness of God is worth more than anything in this world. It is pure eternal ecstasy and heavenly bliss. Few of us have barely touched this realm.

Begin by praying in the Spirit quietly and reaching out in worship to God the Father of our spirits. Don’t be moved by the initial spiritual dryness. This is only evidence that the operation of your flesh has had ascendency over your spirit. It takes time to cultivate true spiritual fellowship and friendship with God where your spirit gains the ascendency.

Be assured that you can know the Father in a new dimension. His Son is the Bridegroom who is waiting for His Bride to awaken to this upward calling. And the Holy Spirit is always endeavoring to lead you into it.

May the cry of the Bride echo the desire of the Bridegroom to meet with us, ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ (Mt. 25:1-13).

Beloved, it is the midnight hour. It is the last hour to purchase more oil and not be found wanting. It is the end of an age when many antichrists are in the world (1 Jn. 2:18). It is a day to read and ponder the last words of Scripture until our hearts resonate with the same cry as the Spirit—until all who hear and thirst for the water of life come and drink freely.

I believe it is then when our cry is heightened to meet the measure of His cry that He will come quickly.

Oh what a day that will be!

And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” “And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.” He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” (Rev. 22:17, 20)

THANK YOU BLOG READERS

I conducted a recent poll and I appreciate the responses of many of our readers. Your encouraging comments helped me to see the value that some of you still place on our Flaming Herald blog. 

Here are many of the comments I pieced together. 

“In this day and hour in which we live, there aren’t many voices out there like yours. Your messages have real spiritual meat in them and are filled with fire and passion.” G. B. 

“I get a lot out of your blogs…Way more than church.” K.P.

“I think the blogs are timely, a voice that addresses the state of the church today and teaches how to move the church forward. So many of us need that input because most of our churches are wanting in areas.” B.M.

“Maybe those of us who value the blog should “forward” it to friends more often for their edification and encourage them to subscribe and thereby increase readership and support.” B

“Often, you right a word that confirms just what I am hearing from the Lord and teaching to my Bible study groups.” D

“I’ve been going to church my whole life and can say that in the latter part of my churchgoing years can count on one hand the times that I have heard the pastor talked about hell, the end times, or encouraging us to get involved politically.” A

“For those of us who can’t find pastors to talk about topics like you do, we rely on online ministers to fill in the gaps.” A. L.

“I look forward with excitement to every article and share them with many and would be VERY DISAPPOINTED if you didn’t share.” M.H.

“thank you for your faithfulness in writing the blog, it has been a great blessing to me even confirming the word I have taught on – a number of times in the same week, which greatly encouraged and lifted me.” A pastor/Bible teacher

“Look forward to reading them and i share them with friends. I have read your books as well but i just purchase the rest of them.” J.C.

“As we know, there is a serious lack of truth being put out in our compromised culture (and Church) that we so need to hear, even be warned as you have! Personally, I’ve remembered points you’ve made, that continue to encourage me, and point me in the right way!” P.P.

“I love your blogs. I read them on my phone or at the library. Now I have the internet myself. I read all of them and forward some.” N.C.

“I read all of your articles. Your articles are stimulating and never boring and feed my spirit and I often pass these articles on to others, especially my wife, and with the Lord’s permission, I sometimes “steal” your main points when ministering to others.” K.J.

“Please keep writing the truth in love… you have been a life line for me..” C

“I know with you that I can get a clear perspective on things that are going on in our Christian community as it pertains to the Lord. Many out there have lost the pure teaching ability to teach on solid doctrine and it’s so watered down and even distorted. So I always hit your pages even if I don’t comment to see if my thinking is lining up with solid teaching.” C.S.

“I envy your writings and have stopped using the highlighter pen as I would end up highlighting most of it.” C.M.

“I do frequently read your blog. I think you are honest and have the courage to speak what the Holy Spirit directs you to share. You are a needed voice in God’s kingdom.” S

“Most people do not say it “the way it is”. I would miss this blog greatly. Do keep it up.” R.C.

“Yes, I’d feel disappointed if you discontinued the blog.” C.L.

Here’s one from Cyprus:

“You are one of the very few true prophetic voices that keep an open path to God’s heart and voice in these perilous days we live now.” A.A. 

Here’s one from a grandmother: 

“I read every blog and have copies of your books. Everything you write speaks volumes to me and brings hope and faith to a higher level. I save them often to reread and share…”

Here’s one that touched me deeply:

“I am so hungry and eager to learn and my only way is by reading. I can’t hear a pin drop- I’m deaf.” A.S.

Here’s one from British Columbia, Canada:

“We have limited access to “in person” contact with other like-minded believers. We are not currently attending any church because it appears that every church in our small city is wrapped up in the current wave of lukewarm and compromised “Christianity”. After struggling for many years, we finally gave up on going to a man-made institution that merely provides entertainment rather than Bible-based teaching. We rely on your blog, as well as a few other blogs, to help us keep a right perspective.” D & T

Here’s one from Africa:

“I have been challenged, motivated, corrected and confirmed by the “part” that God has entrusted you to release. And because of that, I see a greater “whole”. Thank you for your obedience in freely releasing your part. I live and travel in Africa, sometimes with little internet access.” M

Here’s one from Nigeria:

” I use your blogs in some of my sermons. By the way, I’m writing all the way from Nigeria.” P.M.

Here’s one from England:

“Actually I love reading your emails. They are full of passion and wisdom for the times we are in and personally challenging. I’ve also bought two of your books. I love watching the Holy Ghost Forums when they’re posted on YouTube. I love the way the Holy Spirit moves and speaks through you all. I’ve never seen anything like it. It stirs up my spirit, teaches me and increases my spiritual appetite for more.” N.H.

Thank you for encouraging me! I will continue. Please share these truths with others and on your social media pages.

Happy New Year to each of you!
