The Oil Press of Prayer: Return to the Garden of Gethsemane!

I was watching “The Bible” movie again for the umpteenth time when the Lord started talking to me about Gethsemane.  As I studied this final evening in the garden prior to Jesus’ crucifixion, the Lord began to show me some things. For starters, I found that I had actually researched the name Gethsemane before. Not surprisingly, since God is a “patterns God”, that simply means that God had already established this pattern.  Then, realizing that Jesus is our template – our pattern – I believe that the Lord downloaded part of what He underwent in the garden that night as yet another pattern: a key strategy for REVIVAL!

Gethsemane itself means “Oil Press”.  The etymology of Gethsemane consists of two elements. The first part comes from the word (gat), meaning press. The second part comes from the root (smn) and may mean olive oil or eight – either of which works for me!  You see, olive oil is produced under pressure. Similarly, pressing in during prayer produces the new thing which would be the number eight – new beginnings!

My people have forsaken prayer!                                                                                          I believe that Jesus is our template for this life and that He is our model for our existence. Few would argue with this fact.  However, I believe this particular passage of scripture not only tells of Jesus’ crucifixion and the hours immediately preceding it…not only does it tell us how we should act, react and respond under pressure…but I believe there is another message, a deeper message as well, even a hidden message.  I believe that God is speaking to us in this hour about prayer.

A few days ago the Lord said to me, “My people have forsaken prayer!” He went on to say that we need to return to it, that we need to return to our first love.  He also said, “All great revivals have been birthed in prayer!”  I believe that His heart is this: in order to produce the results that we want to see, we have to return to the Oil Press of prayer.  We need to return to the garden of Gethsemane.

You see, Jesus went to this garden in order to save mankind. The sin of the world was so heavy upon Him as he prayed that it actually caused Him to sweat blood.  Luke 22:41 says that Jesus prayed that the cup would pass from Him (paraphrased), but it wasn’t until He went back to praying more intently, in Luke 22:44, that scripture says it actually happened:

“And being in agony [deeply distressed and anguished; almost to the point of death], He prayed more intently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down on the ground.”

More pressure = Richer Oil                                                                                                   In researching the oil press, it seems that the virgin oil, the “first cutting”, is obtained by crushing the olives and soaking them in hot water, allowing the virgin oil to float to the top, where it is skimmed off by hand.  The deeper oil, the second press, is where the oil obtains a darker, reddish brown color – very similar to blood in appearance.  One does not obtain this blood color oil – the deeper, richer oil – without an intense amount of pressure for a protracted amount of time.

This speaks volumes to me!  The first crushing is almost superficial.  This crushing during learning how to walk this Kingdom walk while being soaked in the hot water of the refiner’s fire, produces oil – for our own benefit! Likewise, any prayer that we have prayed so far for revival has issued forth only this first layer of oil.  It is not until we go back into our prayer closets, into our war rooms and really pray MORE INTENTLY, applying even greater amounts of pressure on heaven, that we will see the deeper, richer oils of revival for which we so long.

Pressure creates the blood of grapes.                                                                                But wait, there’s more! If a little bit of pressure and crushing along with some hot water creates oil, then a lot of pressure – intense pressure – will produce a darker oil, one with more substance, one that resembles blood….even the blood of grapes (see Genesis 49:11).  You see, the first part of the word (gat) by itself in Hebrew (gimel, tav) can also mean WINEPRESS. The second part, (smn) means oils or eight.  This literally translates into “winepress of oils” or “winepress of eight”. Again, either one works for the body in this hour – new wine, new oils and deeper, richer oil and wine for new beginnings and REVIVAL!

But it will only happen when we press in, praying even more in earnest, more intently for revival to come. Most of us are so busy that it is a challenge just to get into the prayer closet, let alone pray it through.  However, the old acronym for BUSY, “Buried Under Satan’s Yoke” still applies!  It is a favorite tactic of the enemy to keep us so busy that we cannot find time for the things that REALLY matter! We need to get UN-Busy with the things of the world and then get busy in the closet – our prayer closet.

Pray for strategies to come forth from heaven to get blueprints and directions to proceed. It is no accident that the Lord had me watching this movie of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane for the umpteenth time.  He has a plan that He wants to go forth about the Oil Press of Prayer. He wants us to press in like never before, battle the enemy on our knees, and come out victoriously on the other side!  He wants sustained revival even more than we do.  Let’s give it to Him!

Here’s to the new wine and oil of REVIVAL!

FEARLESS! Guest Blog by Rev. Melissa Pearce

Melissa and I will be ministering together in June in Murrysville, Pennsylvania.  If you know her, you know she is a powerhouse speaker and a true woman of the Word!  Enjoy this guest blog by Melissa!  Come see us in Murrysville, Indiana, Illinois and Massachusetts, too! Info at the bottom here and KingdomPromoters.org/events.html – Edie Bayer

Over the last couple of months, God has been speaking to me about the importance of operating from His seated position of rest. Rest does not mean being lazy or doing nothing; rest in this context is understanding everything the Father has given to us and operating in it. It is a position of empowerment. The more we rest in Him, the more we become fearless for Him.

While praying for our donors, I felt the Lord releasing a message for them about a season of ‘New Beginnings! New Opportunities! New Possibilities!’ However, I felt this was not only for our donors but also for our readers – YOU. We are entering a new season with God; there will be many new beginnings for our journey. These new beginnings will lead to new opportunities to bring Heaven to earth which will ultimately lead to new possibilities to see the glory of God revealed!

Yet, in this season of newness, I feel the Lord wants to alert His people to the schemes of the enemy – to use FEAR to hold us hostage. Do not listen to the lies of darkness; keep your eyes focused on Jesus – our LIGHT!

Proverbs 28:1 says, “…but the righteous are bold as a lion.” 

We are stronger than we realize – we have the Tribe of Judah living within us! God Emmanuel is with us! He will never leave us nor forsake us but remain steadfastly by our side.

God has given us a spirit of boldness; it is time to operate in it – NOW. We must recognize in this season the key word NEW – meaning we have never traveled this way before and never experienced what we are about to experience. We have never seen what we are about to witness and never functioned in the way we are about to function. However, the enemy will try to twist the path God is leading us down and use FEAR to intimidate us and keep us from forging ahead.

Now, we operate from our seated position of REST that empowers us to be fearless because we trust God to manifest the result. Too many times, when the children of God are about to embark on a new season with Him, the enemy throws every fiery dart to hold us hostage. The enemy wants us stuck, not fulfilling our destiny with God. Yet, this is the year God decrees FREEDOM over us! Our new beginning is God positioning us in His prosperity.

You have a few keys of warfare from which to operate:

First, operate in the Father’s love toward (and for) us and settle deep within our heart the plans He has for us – for good and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” 

Don’t allow the enemy to move you from this position of rest! The Father has good intentions and thoughts for us.  He desires we excel in the very things He has created us to do for Him.

Secondly, operate in what He has given you.

2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 

Fear does not come from God; He has given us His power, love and sound mind from which to operate. I love the beauty of this Scripture, because it highlights the mind. God knows the battlefield is always in the mind. The enemy is always jockeying for our mind. He always infiltrates our mind with negative, impossible thoughts. He says things like, “Don’t bother, things won’t change! Give up! If you act upon this, so many people are going to reject you!” The list goes on and on.

When we operate from God’s power, we are relying on the power of the Holy Spirit to enable us to do what we must. When we function from a position of love, God will help us remain steadfast. When we remain seated from the heavenly places, our mind operates from God’s thoughts and His perspective.

Last key, take up your shield of faith!

Ephesians 6:16 says, “…above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.” 

When we operate from a position of faith, the enemy loses all leverage over us! He knows we believe God over the lies he is trying to intimidate us with. Our faith releases us to become fearless in God!

Oh, it is just such a time as this for us to embrace the New Beginning God is setting before us! It is time for us to walk in the New Opportunities that are awaiting. It is time for us to seize the endless New Possibilities! We are equipped; we are empowered! We have been called by God to make an impact! We are FEARLESS!

In Him,

Rev. Melissa Pearce

Have your “SIGNS” been CRYING WOLF? “Relax,” says God. “It’s just a short delay!”

Please sign up at my new blog location:  www.EdieBayer.com

For the last several months, both night and day, there has been road construction close to my house.  A brand new bridge is being built in preparation for adding a new freeway extension.  Driving down this road every day, we have watched the changes; however, the construction has been going on for a very long time.  Since it has taken so long, and truthfully, since road construction is so common in this area, we just stopped paying attention to it.

A while back, the highway folks put a lighted sign up that said “road switch” for a certain date, but that date changed to a later date.  That date got changed again to a later date, and yet again after that.  So, having seen the sign cry wolf so many times, we truly just became used to the dates changing to later and later dates and started to ignore the sign.

But recently at my monthly “Learning to FLY!” prophetic school, one of the attendees was very anxious about the road switch, which the sign said was for that day.  I didn’t give it a second thought when I drove by the sign with this date on it, figuring it was going to change again, but she was very concerned.  She was nervous and anxious because the way she was used to going was changing, and it was night time – she couldn’t see very well in the dark.  We told her to follow us, since she lives close by, but when we left the building, she was already gone.

“Relax. It’s just a short delay.”                                                                                                                When we got to the place where they were switching the highway, with great anticipation we looked for the change, but there was nothing different.  Nothing had changed at all. It was just the highway under construction as usual.  We chuckled about it, since there was no change yet again, and went home.

The next morning, I no sooner turned onto the highway in this same area and immediately came into a traffic jam; there were brake lights forever it seemed!  Because I was on my way to the airport, this bothered me, but upon inquiring of the Lord, He said, “Relax. It’s just a short delay.”

Sure enough, I got through that little bottleneck within a few minutes, and moved swiftly onto the new road, passed over the new bridge, and through one last minor detour onto the entrance ramp to the main highway.  It was absolutely fine, even in the darkness of pre-dawn that I drove through it.  There were no problems.  In fact, it was fun and different!

Breakthrough into the new is finally here!                                                                                        This so speaks to me!  The whole “new-highway traffic-switch” thing, along with the person who got so upset and anxious about the road changing prophetically speaks to me.  That is our life right now, as believers following the pillar and the cloud!  The road is changing – there is no doubt!  A new way has already been built! There is a TRAFFIC SWITCH directly up ahead!  Even though the dates that we were expecting it have changed over and over, prompting us to become so used to the delay and calloused that we stopped looking for it – IT’S HERE!  IT’S FINALLY HERE!

Even though I was so used to the construction, and had gotten to where I ignored the signs – IT’S HERE! Even though there was a bottle neck and lots of brake lights and a slowdown right before the transition into the new, it’s HERE!

Keep pushing through!  Keep driving! Don’t let the brake lights stop you!  Yes, you may experience a slowdown, and see lots of red lights, but believe it – your breakthrough into the new is finally here! “Relax! It’s just a short delay,” says the Lord of Hosts!  Even if you experience one last final detour, before long you will be on the entrance ramp and on your way!

Don’t be ANXIOUS! “Be anxious for nothing,” (Luke 12:25-26). Not being able to see in the dark creates anxiety for many.  Don’t be anxious! None of us see well in the dark – even prophets only see in part and prophesy in part (see 1 Corinthians 13:9).  Don’t forget that in the dark is where the Lord works best!  “Tears may last for a night, but joy comes with the morning,” (Psalm 30:5). The darker the darkness, the greater the light when it finally breaks through (see Isaiah 60:1)!  A diamond held up against black velvet shines just that much more!

Don’t be anxious because the way that you have been used to going is changing!  This is a GOOD thing!  Even though it may take a little practice to learn a new way to “do” this Kingdom life, this is a good thing.  Don’t be anxious.  And for heaven’s sake, don’t leave your guide behind!  Listen to the Holy Spirit as He offers assistance and extends His wisdom. Ask Him and He will tell you!  He will lead you and guide you into all truth (see John 16:13).

Don’t ignore the signs!  Yes, these same signs have repeatedly said that breakthrough is here, breakthrough is here – but honest! BREAKTHROUGH IS HERE!  It’s finally here!

Finally: Don’t give up!  Don’t allow the delays and hope deferred (see Proverbs 13:12) to cause you to become so calloused by the deferment of the breakthrough, the delays and the elapsed time that you stop looking for it! It’s HERE!

Be expectant! Expect the change and expect it to be GOOD! Expect it to be SWIFT!  Be ready for the goodness of God to be poured out on your life in this time – REAL TIME – in the NOW Time! IT’S TIME!

Enjoy the new road the Lord is giving you!

Blessings!

God’s Opinion of You!

God’s Opinion of You!

“I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one [even] as We are one,” (John 17:22 AMPC).

A lot of times our prayers go unanswered, James says, because we pray “amiss” (see James 4:3).  This means we pray with wrong intent or with a wrong heart.  True, sometimes it might be because we have selfish motives.  However, I believe that sometimes it’s because we simply don’t know the truth of what the Bible says about us – indeed, what God Himself says about us!  If we really knew what God’s opinion of us truly is – how He feels and thinks about us – we would pray from a completely different perspective!

One such instance is in John 17:22.  In English, the glory and honor that Jesus is talking about seems to be strictly divine.  It seems to mean that, somehow, we’ll be radically transformed into this glowing entity in a glorified body, perfect in every way, like Jesus in the transfiguration (see Matthew 17).   Surely, we cannot achieve GLORY this side of heaven, we think.  He must mean when we die, right?

The truth is, the “Glory” about which Jesus is talking is for RIGHT NOW, while you are still living and breathing.  In the Greek the word here for GLORY is “doxsa”. Simply put, it is God’s Opinion of us! Strong’s 1391 says: “‘exercising personal opinion which determines value’ – glory.”

Glory “…literally means ‘what evokes good opinion, i.e. that something has inherent, intrinsic worth.’”

THAT is what God says about you!  God’s own personal opinion of Jesus is that He has value – GLORY.  God has a good opinion of Jesus.  Well, guess what?  Jesus has the SAME OPINION ABOUT YOU! He “GAVE” you this opinion, this name, this value, this GLORY in John 17:22.  His personal opinion of you is that you have inherent, intrinsic worth!  That means without lifting a finger, without one prayer, without one moment of doing any kind of Kingdom work at all…you have value to God…just by being you!

You have the EXACT SAME VALUE to God that Jesus does! You are as valuable to God in His eyes as Jesus!  You are “…His prized possession,” (see James 1:18).  Now, THAT should change the way you THINK about yourself!  If you KNOW that God speaks that highly of you, that He THINKS that highly of you…it only stands to reason that you should think that highly of yourself.

So, begin today.  Begin seeing yourself as God sees you!  Give YOURSELF the same value that God does!  Stop listening to the enemy tell you that you are worthless, that your life has no meaning.  You are every bit as valuable to God as the Savior that He sent to redeem you!  Open your eyes to the truth of this, and live life worthy in your own eyes.  God already sees you that way.

BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE SAME VALUE AS JESUS and He gave it all in obedience to God, does this mean you need to give God your all?  Yes.  He gave to you His only Son, Jesus Christ, His “prized possession”. Jesus gave Himself right back to the Father.  This is our model.  You are God’s prized possession in this hour, giving your all back to God, not holding anything back.

Today, give your most prized possession back to God.  Give Him your very best offering today.  You are not required to give your first born – only your FIRST FRUITS.  I challenge you to give a first fruits offering today into this ministry, Spirit Fuel.  This ministry gives so much to you every day.  Give back to God by giving into Spirit Fuel. You will be blessed!

New Season “BE” Attitudes!

New Season “BE” Attitudes!

We all know this is a new season, a new place that we have walked into.  Some of us are having some difficulties navigating this new terrain because it is so alien!  It is because He is re-training us.  Although this is not all-inclusive, I believe this list of “BE” Attitudes for this new season will BE-helpful!

At that time the disciples came up and asked Jesus, Who then is [really] the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

And He called a little child to Himself and put him in the midst of them,

And said, Truly I say to you, unless you repent (change, turn about) and become like little children [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving], you can never enter the kingdom of heaven [at all].

Whoever will humble himself therefore and become like this little child [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving] is greatest in the kingdom of heaven,” (Matthew 18:1-4 AMPC). 

God has been speaking to me about this very thing – to BE-Hold Him like a Child!  Do you remember when you were a little kid waking up on Saturday morning?  Do you remember how full of anticipation you were?  How exciting it was?  The world was so full of promise!  You could do ANYTHING!  God wants us to BE like that little child again!

BE Wonder-Full: He wants us to be FULL OF WONDER!  Our cynicism must go!  All the callousness, the pride, our “know it all” attitudes…indeed, the bitterness and rage must go, too.  We must be full of wonder and open our eyes wide to the things of God.  I believe that He is going to show us amazing things of which we have no knowledge in this season!  He is taking us to school just like a little kid, retraining us to show us brand new things – about Him, about the body and about ourselves!

“Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand),” (Jeremiah 33:3 AMPC).

Be like a little child, according to Matthew 18:3 (AMPC).  We must “… become like little children [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving]…” Jesus said that if we cannot humble ourselves and do this, we cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven – AT ALL!  I don’t know about you, but I want IN, right here, right now! I want to walk in the Kingdom of Heaven, today, right here in the earth realm.

For some of us, this will be difficult, because we have become accustomed to reacting to life through our pain, our doctrine, or our belief systems about Daddy God.  We simply have to admit that we ARE children; that we do NOT know it all; and open our eyes to the truth that He has so much more for us than what we have experienced so far!

Be expectant – Expect nothing but the best in this season!  God has amazing things planned for you.  He has been waiting your entire life, longing to bless you in the way that He is blessing you in this season!  Expect it and let Him!  Open your heart and don’t be afraid, because He is opening His hand to you.

Be excited – This is the time of your life!  These are the days that you will look back on in future years and just sigh with satisfaction and contentment, and giggle with joy!  This is your ‘launch time’!  This is a time to be excited about.  You were born for such a time as this!  You have been groomed for this moment in history!  Get up off the couch!  Get ready to run!  It’s GO-TIME!

Believe!  Out of all of the BE-Attitudes that He has called us to in this season, for some, this may be the most difficult.  If you have been in a rough season, seeing dream after dream crash-and-burn, and feel that God is no longer in the prayer-answering business, this will be THE TIME TO STAND UP AND BELIEVE!  You must shake it off and BELIEVE God again!  Believe that He loves you!  Believe that He wants the best for you!  Believe that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (see 2 Cor. 5:21)!  Believe that He is doing the impossible, and He is doing it for YOU!

Be willing – We must be willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen!  We must be willing to listen for the voice of God and surrender completely to whatever it is that He says to do.  We must be willing to submit to His will – crucify our flesh – and just do it.  We must be willing to exchange the old for the new!  We must be willing to sit at his feet, to travel the world, to walk the extra mile, or to do whatever it takes, because that is what He is calling us to in this season.

Be open – We must be open to God-possibilities!  God is so creative – He never has to repeat Himself! We must be open to literally ANYTHING!    He is opening doors in the most unusual of places, connecting us with people that we never dreamed we would ever know.  When you are open to anything, you will expect it, and be excited about it, too.  Look for something unusual to occur, because that is GOD!

Be REAL!  It is God’s heart that we are REAL – with HIM, with OURSELVES and with EACH OTHER.  God is sick of the fake.  He wants “The REAL You” – the one He created.  He doesn’t want a really bad copy of somebody else.  He doesn’t want the fake exterior, either – He doesn’t like white-washed tombs (see Matthew 23:27).  We need to become the REAL us that He dreamed of before the foundation of the earth was laid.  It is our authenticity that reveals Jesus, not the “made-up” version of us that we created!

“And He called a little child to Himself and put him in the midst of them…” (Matthew 18:2). 

You ARE that little child in Matthew 18:2! He has called you!  He chose you and put you in the midst of Himself!  You are in His inner circle of friends, one of his hand-selected disciples!  He calls you His beloved.  In this season, you will BE that beloved child once again – full of wonder, expectant, and excited at all that your world once again has to offer.  This is the time of your life!  Live it to the fullest!

You Have Permission to By-Pass Protocol!

During worship, I received a very powerful word of knowledge in a vision. God showed me that someone’s lungs were obviously cancerous and then I heard the word, “BREATHE!” As this vision progressed, one lung was completely healed, as he or she was in the presence of God – breathing in Jesus’ presence.

Since I had just gotten back from Hawaii and had not been to church for a while, I hesitated to go up to the Pastor and say anything to him. I know it’s wrong – call it fear of man – but I didn’t want to be “that person”. Since I am in service so irregularly, I try to maintain a low profile. I just worship Jesus, get visions and prophetic downloads, hug everybody and go home.

But this day was different. Everything in me was screaming to let this word of knowledge out! I fought with my inner self, not wanting to look “like that”, but knowing for sure this was a God-word. It was such a struggle I started desperately looking for someone in leadership to give the word to!  I saw the Pastor’s wife. Surely she would be able to give the word of knowledge. Sadly, I couldn’t think of her name! I didn’t want to sidle up to her, “Hi, I have a word of knowledge! What’s your name again?” What kind of a prophet is that? Oh, my gosh! What was I going to do?

The Pastor stood and started to speak. I stared at him intensely, WILLING him to give the word himself! After all, there is only one God and one Holy Spirit (see Ephesians 4:4-5)! He started to talk about healing presence in the room, and I mentally cheered him on, yes, the lungs, the breath, the healing … GO!

But then he stopped, the music ended, and the moment passed. I had lost the battle. I never gave the word. Weeping inside, disappointed in myself, I determined I would never do that again. I decided to find out the proper way to get a prophetic word to the Pastor.

At the end of service, I spoke with him. Graciously, he said that I should have given the word because there was cancer in the room. I confessed I didn’t want to look “like that”… to be “that person”. He then gave me some great advice: “You’d better get over that!” He also mentioned that he was aware of typical church protocol, but then said, “You have permission to by-pass protocol!”

That phrase went off inside of me like fireworks! I knew I was hearing directly from my Abba-Father!

It is time to by-pass protocol! It is time to stand up and BE the FIVE-FOLD MINISTRY (see Ephesians 4:11). We must allow Jesus to use us to invade other church cultures! We must allow God to put us into another stream if He so desires. We must politely ignore man’s do’s and don’ts – to allow Holy Spirit to do His thing.

We must operate in our gifts, both inside the house of God, and out – regardless of others’ denominational restrictions and beliefs. I have prayed for dozens of people at Walmart, the grocery store and at the mall, and never asked what religion they are. Jesus’ wonder-working power (see Psalm 77:14) is not restricted because they don’t believe in it! Watch Him work!

We simply MUST be the spiritual grown-ups that God has raised. We must break loose of the bondage of religion – by-pass protocol – and not care what others think of us, just like David danced before the Ark (2 Samuel 6:14), blowing every religious mindset of his day. We must realize that God has placed unique gifts and talents inside of us to do the works of the ministry until He comes back to get us (see Ephesians 4:12)…and not let man stop us with his religious rules and regulations.

God has trained us. It is time to operate outside ‘the Charismatic church’. Last week I went to a Presbyterian church with a friend. We ministered to many, sitting at our lunch table in their cafeteria. These people were not familiar with the prophetic or healing prayer. They had no idea who I was but were hungry for the deeper things of God. “Proper Protocol” would never have allowed for inner-healing and prophetic ministry at a Presbyterian church, especially at the lunch table!

Then, while walking through the parking lot, we saw two women who were standing together talking. I greeted one, and as we chatted, I knew I had to pray for her. The longer I waited, the more my stomach knotted up. Finally, it was so tight all I could do was squeak out, “CAN I PRAY FOR YOU?” As soon as I touched her she began weeping because the spirit fell. Laughing through her tears, she cried, “I’m leaking!” Her friend gladly received prayer also, confessing she silently asked God, “Please, God! Let her pray for me, too! I want that!”  Parking Lot Prophets are warned against in Charismatic circles; however, by-passing that protocol produced amazing God-results!

Sometimes we simply have to stand up and give the Word that the Lord has imparted to us – whether others like it or not! In the instance above, this word-of-knowledge about cancer would have been welcomed – but having been subject to “proper church protocol” for so long, I was reluctant to stand up and release it. Having been bashed in the past, I didn’t want the leadership to view me negatively, usurping “proper protocol”, because I thought I was “somebody”. Listen, family – when God chooses to use a vessel, He uses whomsoever He desires, and doesn’t ask for permission!

Lastly, we need to pour out the revelation that has been given to us. I know a couple that has been “doing church” alone at their dining room table for years because they had grown so weary of “man’s church”. Just recently they started back again. The first two weeks went well, but the most recent visit created complaints about stories-being-told versus word-being-preached. I suggested that perhaps the Lord had placed them there not to GET but to GIVE.

This couple is full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom. I proposed that God may have placed them at this particular church to pour out from their abundant reservoir of revelation, obtained from having sat at the feet of the Father for so long. This provoked them to re-think the reason they went back! They realized they didn’t NEED any more food…instead they need to BE manna for others.

You have permission to bypass the protocols that are keeping you from ministering the light of Jesus everywhere you go, every day, in every way!  You are the manna! Be bold and very courageous (see Joshua 1:9)! Pray for people. Lay hands on the sick. Speak in tongues. Bless people, speak scripture and watch disciples being born in other church cultures! Hallelujah!

Blessings and Abundance!
