Praise Reports

 
The Israelites were instructed to rehearse the wonders God had done for them (Deut. 11:1-19). Throughout scripture, we’re instructed to speak continually of the good things the Lord has done.
 
“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful to Him, and bless His name” (Psalms 100:4).
 
Remembering the wonders of what God has already done in our lives is critical when going through tests and trials. It reminds us of the faithfulness of the Lord, that He will never leave us nor forsake us. When we share praise reports, it also encourages those around us – especially the next generation!

“Are You Ready to Die?”

cross

I’d been praying for months, “Lord, if there be anything in me that doesn’t give you praise, that isn’t pleasing in your sight, take it from me.”

The first week in February, 2017, during a prayer meeting, we all knelt down and submitted ourselves to the Lord as a group. We told Him we were bringing all we were before His altar, and asked to be emptied of ourselves and filled with Him.

The Lord’s Response

That night, for the remainder of our prayer time, I heard the Lord say several times:

“I AM Holy!”

“Be ye therefore Holy, even as I AM Holy.”

“Nothing unclean can stand before Me.”

“You must be a living sacrifice.”

“Are you ready to DIE?”

When the Lord asked this, I said, “Yes, Lord, I’m yours. Do with me as it pleases you.” Although I meant every word, at the time I had no idea what I was asking, and what would have to take place in order to be emptied of myself and filled with Him. Read More >>>

The Rescue Mission

Rescue

On February 23rd, I was given a vision and word from the Lord.

While in prayer, I began to repent and intercede for the Church. As I prayed, I started to feel deep pain and agony in my spirit. Suddenly, what looked like a slide show presentation began.

Faces of people from all over the world began flashing across the screen. Some were crying, their hearts broken; my heart ached for them. Others were lying in beds, sick and injured; this brought twinges of pain in various parts of my own body. Read More >>>

The Untouchables

December 16, 2016

During my study and prayer time this morning, thoughts of the intense spiritual warfare ahead for the Saints came heavy upon my spirit. Sure, spiritual warfare is a constant factor in the lives of Saints, but it was impressed upon me that we haven’t seen anything like what’s heading our way.

I saw in the spirit the darkness descending, similar to what I’d seen months ago and posted in the article titled ‘The Light Will Rise Above the Darkness.’ But this time I saw the descending darkness from where I was sitting. It was coming down as a cover, blanketing everything all around me.

As I watched, the Lord said, Yes, sin will abound, but My Grace will MUCH MORE abound in you! The same Power that raised My Son from the dead lives in you. Stay close. Abide in Me, and you will be untouchable.”

“YOU WILL TAKE THE LAND!”

jericho

On October 21st, I was awakened at 2:00 am by the following words: “You will take the land.” I was hearing it repeated over and over. Then, as I fully awakened, I heard it spoken loudly and very distinctly, “YOU WILL TAKE THE LAND!”

I initially took it as the Lord giving a general Word over His people – like words of affirmation over us as to what we’ll be doing in the not-too-distant future. So I got up from bed saying, “Yes, Lord. I receive that. We will indeed take the land.” Then I went into my office to pray over what I’d heard. Read More>>>

“I Am Offended by the Lack of Expectation From My People!” Expect the Miraculous – Part Two

barbed-wire-792319_960_720

What I’m about to share was received in the early morning hours of September 14th. I’d just sat down to finish the article entitled, I Am Offended by the Lack of Expectation from My People!’(Part One). If you haven’t already, I recommend reading it before reading this post. Please pray over what’s written here, that the Lord will give special revelation as it pertains to each individual.

In Part One, I described a dream I’d been given about being translated to India. A few other individuals and I had been sent there to speak and minister to a room full of people.

The next morning, the Lord revealed I’d been given the dream in response to my concern of what might happen if all communications were shut down and martial law instituted. He also reminded me of a bodily translation He’d let me experience six years prior, as well as show me visions of other experiences I’d had which, although I hadn’t realized at the time, were actually translations. He then said several things – including the following: Read More>>>

“I Am Offended by the Lack of Expectation from My People!” Expect the Miraculous – Part One

sunset-1030716_960_720

The morning of August 31st, I heard the Lord say, “I am offended by the lack of expectation from my people!”

It really surprised me at first, because I was right in the middle of praising and thanking Him for a revelation He’d just given through a dream. This particular dream has set me on fire with anticipation for what the Lord has planned for His people.

Prior to this dream, several pastor friends had been asking if it might be possible for me to come speak to their congregations about the dreams and visions I write about. With some being outside the U.S., I’d responded by saying that if it was God’s will, He’d have to make a way, especially the time needed for traveling such vast distances.

So, I’d been thinking along those lines. Even with all the social networking and satellite transmission capabilities, there’re still so many areas around the world not able to access such services. It’s still necessary for the Body of Christ to travel to and from to minister in these areas. Then I thought about what might happen if the communication systems we now take for granted are interrupted, or martial law instituted? These minor inconveniences we now experience will pale in comparison.

I quickly brushed off all the negative thoughts, and began thanking Him in advance for always making a way. Then came the dream… Read More>>>

“I AM More Than Enough!”

Golden Sunset          On Friday, April 8th, 2016, I received a Word from the Lord. This began a series of messages received over the next few days, culminating in an open vision given the morning of Sunday, April 17th. I believe the message is for the Church, as it’s time to go out into the deep. Please pray and ask the Lord for interpretation and how it applies to you personally.

“My Church Will Rise From the Ashes!”

          Many years ago, when I first became a Christian, the denomination I belonged to believed the rapture would take place post tribulation. They believed all Christians alive on the earth at His second coming, along with those who’d died in Christ through the ages, would ascend, meet Him in the air, do a u-turn, and come back to earth for the millennial reign.  I remember how we laughed at those who believed in a pre-tribulation rapture, those who believed in the “Great Escape.”          

          It wasn’t until a few years ago, when I did an in depth study of the subject, that my belief on the rapture was totally transformed. Although I now understand Jesus will come for the Church prior to the wrath of God being poured out on this world, God has shown me it will not be as many believers think. Quite a few Christians I know quickly dismiss the horrors happening around the globe, believing it’s something they’ll never have to contend with, and end any discussion of what may be coming with statements like, “Well, I believe Jesus will be taking us out of here before any of that happens.” I believe our brothers and sisters who are already going through intense tribulation in other parts of the world would disagree.          

          A little over a year ago, I began to sense things were beginning to move so quickly that, if Jesus didn’t come for His Church soon, the Church would indeed be here through some very tough times.  Knowing that before Jesus comes for His glorious Church, a great awakening is to occur, was beginning to confuse me.
