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
