I am interested in your thoughts concerning group leadership which is truly Spirit led. You related the story of meeting with some others and were singing and sharing until the pastor showed up . Time to get with “the program” was just the opposite, was it not?
When can tradition allow for the movement of the ever flowing spirit? Have we straight-jacketed the Spirit of God for the sake of comfort and freedom from potential error? Can the lack of individual depth and relationship with the Spirit ever allow for groups to function for prolonged periods in freely flowing response to His directions?
If a few mature individuals function with the Spirit, must they usually be content that their service to the King be individually expressed, including within the group with is a mix of mature and babies, some with considerable trust and those whose experience is has not had time to be refined? -WJ

Those are all very deep and important questions.

The first thought that came into my mind was the evangelist who came to the former Assembly of God church in Springfield, Roger Webb…(Circa ~2000)…

http://www.rogerwebb.org

He introduced himself, and proceeded to read from the Book of Ezra.  After his reading, he closed the book, sat down in the front row and looked up toward heaven.

All of us wondered why why wasn’t doing something.  I was irritated and wanted to leave.  But I could not.  I was frozen in my seat.  Time started to have no meaning. 1/2 hour.  Seemed like 5 minutes.  About 45 minutes into total silence, someone started weeping.  A few minutes more, a few people were giggling.  None of us had moved.  I felt was floating.  I have never experienced such peace.  After somewhere around half hour, Roger got up and shared on why Ezra was so important, and how God had planted it into his work.  He finished and said we were all welcome to come back again the next night.

Of course we did.  We could not wait to see what God had planned.  Same thing. Roger read from Ezra and sat down.  One half hour of silence passed.  The peace that passed all understanding filled the room.  Roger got up and instructed everyone to hold out their hands, there was a gold anointing.  He walked around the room and brushed our hands one by one.  Wow, sure enough gold dust was falling unto our hands.

The next night we all gathered up front, and touch each others hands, and the gold dust miraculously spread.  It seemed to be falling from the ceiling.  The next night, Roger related that God was going to fix bad teeth with gold crowns.  We first looked in our neighbors mouth to see a before picture.  Then we waited.  After some time, Roger said to look into your neighbors mouth again.  Someone said “oh man, you got some Gold teeth!”.  Pretty soon, I could hear women in the bathroom screeching and screaming “Oh my Gawddd!!”  A man from my church had gotten a new rack, uppers and lowers.  He later explained that his wife and him were poor and they could not afford to go to the dentist.  

Every night were like little children playing with the Father.  One night we went up front together and we were all slayed in the Spirit.  We were kindergarten children sleeping while the Father rested.

For two wonderful weeks we tasted the joy of the kingdom.  The last night was something I will never forget.  We were all up front, as Roger told us to expect something was about to happen.  I saw a star trek image of a transporter beam of light as an intensely big and frighteningly strong guard angel appeared.  A second one appeared.  They disappeared into the room.  Then another transporter beam, and the King of Kings appeared.  Regal, resplendent, esteemed.  The audience of us hairballs all fell to our faces as if dead.  He walked off the stage and disappeared.  He proceeded to touch each individual with some unknown impartation. 

After they left we all gathered together to say goodbye.  Roger was going back home, and we were left with the realization of how wonderful church can be when Jesus is the head, and we allow God to be God!

Conrad Lampan tells me his implanted vision is to minister to Pastors and the church. My view is if we experience an immense harvest where will all the believers have the meeting facilities to be discipled and taught in the kingdom?  Did not all of us get our milk from the mother church?  But that is only for the church found in the United States, Europe and Australia?

What about China, India?.  What about the underground churches in Iran?.  It has to be a house church or a called gathering.  Like Paul, Aquila and Priscilla sewing tents. “Where two or more are gathered together”?  In the natural vision and world it would appear to be a combination of both?.  

In 2002 on a trip to Boise, Idaho prophetic revival driving through the Columbia gorge I had a vision (get this), of Jesus pulling up beside my car.  He was riding a chopped, long front forks Harley!  He had long flowing hair in the wind and He was wearing aviator sunglasses.  When He looked at me, and I received a long communication in the blink of an eye.  This is the revelation;

“In future time on the earth, the church will experience intense persecution, a backlash.  There will be communication blackouts and disturbances.  Men that once belonged to groups like the Hell’s Angels will become my secret messengers to deliver communication between the brethren”. (Revelation 12:6)

So I believe at first the principles and kingdom values of the New Jerusalem will be preached and taught in the churches.  “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?”  (1 Peter 4:17).  This will create a scissure in the church body.

So to make a long answer shorter, at least, we must get out of the way to follow our Master’s example; “Then Jesus answered and said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of Himself but what He sees the Father do. For whatever things He does, these also the Son does likewise”.  (John 5:19).  Ditto for the church!

The Image of a Giraffe – The Heck You Say?? 1.12.2017

Lately, I have been watching YouTube videos of a prophetess named Kat Kerr. She recently burst on the scene when her prediction of a Donald Trump election victory video went viral. She has the nickname, “the Revelator”. She claims to have been to heaven to God’s throne daily for over twenty years.

Of course, the video prediction was right on. But that was only a part of what she shared on the video. Link: http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word.html?ID=16855

God was telling me the same thing about Donald Trump in July. I tried to take it to some Christians I respected. I got pretty much the same reactions from whomever I talked to. Donald Trump is a rich, immoral scumbag. Hilary Clinton is not much better. What is the point of even voting?. I would reply perhaps God is voting in this election? Most Christians were just bound up in their own bias and expectations.

If God has a choice who would be President, who would he pick? Does he not know the church janitor, as well as he knows the church pastor? Did we forget that Moses was a murderer and a fugitive from justice before he encountered the burning bush?. Did we forget David should have been convicted of manslaughter, before his episode of adultery?. The Apostle Paul could have been brought up on charges of genocide at the Hague. What about Winston Churchill? It has been reported he drank two bottles of whiskey a day. Who knows the mind of God? Consider;

“But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and God has chosen the base things of the world, and things which are despised, and things which are not, in order to bring to nothing things that are;” (1 Corinthians 1:27-28)

We all need to be flexible to hear the small tiny voice and to understand the times and the seasons. Miss Kerr is introducing to me concepts and revelations I have never heard of. And I am someone my friends are prone to say has his head in the clouds and needs his feet on the ground. I get revelations and hear kingdom truths that I get attacked on when I share them.

For example, in my State of Oregon, the local Indian tribe was the Kalapoyas. There were a local wintering grounds nearby here. How would they react if they were on a summer outing collecting and hunting and they ran into 3 or 4 giraffes browsing nearby? It would be a good thing they treasured animals, or they might freak out and try to kill the things! What if you had never seen or heard of a giraffe, and a dirty homeless guy came up to you and said he just saw one, and he begins to describe it to you, “Yah man, it was about 12 feet tall. It had orange fur, with little dark dots. It had a 6-foot long skinny neck. The head looked like a camel. It had 2 horns like a football goal posts. The body looked like a horse and the legs looked like walking stilts”. You would want to get away from that nutcase in a second! But the truth is, such a thing really exists!

Every day we see things that are so common, we are numb to the wonder of it’s very existence! Before scientists told us no two snowflakes look alike, who would care or even believe it? We could create different paper cutouts of snowflakes into eternity, and never finish. After the Hubble space telescope was launched, astronomers told us there are more stars like our sun in the universe than the numbers of grains of sand on every beach, river, and desert on the earth. And that is just in the space that the Hubble can see!

We need to have the faith to just let God be God. We need to let Jesus be the head, and sufficient for us to be the body! Our God is so immense we will never see the end of it throughout all eternity!

Heaven is going to Release a Renaissance 11.27.2016

“Heaven is going to Release a Renaissance” 11.27.2016 Leslie Lyons

Today, I received one of those instantaneous revelations.  A thousand words in a blink of an eye. I have been parsing it through the WORD “to test the spirits to see if it from God”.

This is the revelation;

Heaven is going to release a renaissance of knowledge.  This will be to bless humanity generally but to bless the poor nations particularly.  It will literally lift nations up by the boot straps.  Whether it be science or technology, genetics or just plain undiscovered resources.  The light will shine forth from heaven and human minds will be illuminated.  This is all part and parcel of Jubilee and an end-time harvest.

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness nor shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth with the Word of truth, for us to be a certain firstfruit of His creatures”. (James 1:17-18)

In order for this to take place, corruption and evil must first be rooted out. The natural mechanisms on the earth will need to be cleansed. Evil men and women will have to be removed from positions of power in government, religion, and civil organizations. This is not to say the church will fill those all roles. But they will be filled with people with a moral compass and a conscience.

This is why we have seen the election of Donald Trump. Far from being a saint, he none the less has a moral compass and dedication to duty. God is going to lead him, and others like him, who share similar values to lead this country. God is intervening on behalf of the church who have prayed and demonstrated a desire for Him to help America before it becomes irreversibly damaged. I believe God has never left His position that His church is not limited to, but headquartered in the United States of America.

There has always been a remnant of believers in the United States of America. Unlike Sodom and Gomorrah, they number more than 10!. Who can know the mind of God?. But, I can relate to you, I have been advised this is the case.

The Lord’s Prayer

(traditional)The Lord’s Prayer is one of the best-loved and most spoken prayers on the planet.
Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.
Amen (Matthew 6:9–13)
As the church on earth begins to resemble it’s counterpart in heaven, these remarkable changes will begin to appear. The more we cooperate with our Father’s plans, the more Jubilee will begin to appear.

I received a newsletter from Samaritan’s Purse ministries announcing they have helped open a modern hospital in Liberia. This is our Lord’s heart. To help the powerless and the downtrodden. May His honor and glory increase and spread across this world!. I am most humbled by the gracious power of Jesus’ LOVE.

The thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10)
