What’s in a Name?

What’s in a Name?

And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My Name [as [a]presenting all that I Am], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son,” (John 14:13 AMPC).

[“According to Hebrew notions, a name is inseparable from the person to whom it belongs, i.e. it is something of his essence. Therefore, in the case of God, it is specially sacred” (Souter).]

Strong’s Concordance: onoma = a name, authority, cause

Short Definition: name, character, reputation
Definition: name, character, fame, reputation

3686 ónoma – name; (figuratively) the manifestation or revelation of someone’s character, i.e. as distinguishing them from all others. Thus “praying in the name of Christ” means to pray as directed (authorizedby Him, bringing revelation that flows out of being in His presence. ” Praying in Jesus’ name” therefore is not a “religious formula” just to end prayers (or get what we want)!

  1. relying or resting on the name of Christ, rooted (so to speak) in his name, i. e. mindful of ChristColossians 3:17Ephesians 5:20; i. e. (for substance) “to ask a thing, as prompted by the mind of Christ and in reliance on the bond which unites us to him,” John 14:13.

According to Strong’s, when we pray in the Name of Jesus we are praying “as directed (authorizedby Him, bringing revelation that flows out of being in His presence.” This means that when we pray, we must allow Holy Spirit to pray through us: prophetic prayer.  He must be the one to advise us of what it is that Jesus would like to see happen in the earth realm…not necessarily what we would like to see.

Sometimes our flesh would have us pray amiss (see James 4:3) for something “in the Name of Jesus”. This could be something that isn’t even bad – yet it isn’t the Father’s will for us or for another. As an example, there may be times that the Lord wants to take someone home and heal them in heaven, but not here in the earth realm. How do we know when this is the case?  We need to be in His presence, and pray accordingly.

We must know what the Father’s will is, by being in His presence at all times, and pray for that in Jesus’ Name – with His full power and authority.

What’s in a Name?  You are!

Pollinators: Ready the Fields for Harvest!

Driving through Indiana recently I pulled into a highway rest stop.  Inside was a display case with what looked like a giant yellow hornet in it!  Intrigued, and wondering what the giant yellow hornet was all about, I saw that this display was about pollinators.  Pollinators are insects and animals that help to spread nectar among plants, enabling them to produce fruit.

After I left the rest area, I passed by field after field after field of crops, one after the other. I asked the Lord what He would like to say to me about these fields.  He began by saying that the fields are growing, getting ready for harvest. They are doing what they are supposed to do, what they are designed to do: lay in the field and grow!  He also said some will produce fruit, and some will not. The difference?  Some will have pollinators!

I immediately saw the parallel the Lord was drawing! We are the pollinators. We are Christians pollinating the fields, readying them for Harvest!  Pollinators are necessary to spread the nectar from one plant to another in order for them to produce and be fruitful. In the same way, we are spreading the good news from one person to another, readying them to do the same!

Matthew 9:37-38  AMPC

“37 Then He said to His disciples, The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few.
38 So pray to the Lord of the harvest to [a]force out and thrust laborers into His harvest.”

The display at the rest stop talked about the many different types of pollinators: beetles, caterpillars that turn into butterflies, bees, flies, birds, and bats.  I never realized there were so many different types of pollinators!  This speaks to the many different types of ministers!  Some are shiny and have hard exteriors, like beetles. Some are beautiful, showy and flit from person to person and place to place, floating on the breeze like butterflies.  Some are quiet and use “radar”, like bats.  There are so many different kinds of ministers that that Lord uses to pollinate His people!  But we still need more.  We need more pollinators to increase the harvest!  The display showed ways we can help the pollinators to flourish, because then the crops – and the harvest – will flourish.

Different crops require different kinds of pollinators. Different pollinators require different kinds of habitat in which to dwell, to abide and raise their young.  Some require hollow logs; some require tall grass; some require sandy soil in which to birth their young.

As the Lord talked to me, I saw that each of these habitats speaks of a different type of ministry.  Some are underground. These ministers are incognito, blending in as secret agents!  Some are in tall grasses, hidden in plain sight among the weeds and the wheat. Some are in hollow logs, birthing converts out of “dead wood”.  These are those whom God wants to resurrect!

The fields are ripe for harvest, but in order to have a harvest, we must first have pollinators. Count on God, Who has revealed the various types of pollinators for the various types of crops to provide them.

Pollinators: Ready the Fields for Harvest!

Blessings and abundance!

Eagle: Go FLY! You Have POWER from On-High!

Multiple times recently as I was driving, the Lord highlighted to me the symbol on a particular brand of vehicle.  I am sure you have seen it – a square-ish “O” with what looks like wings in it.  It seemed that every time I looked at a vehicle it had this logo on it! The first few times I just thought maybe this particular vehicle brand had just gained popularity, but then it happened so many times I realized the Lord was speaking!  I finally asked Him, “What are you trying to show me?”

Meditating on this symbol, I tried to prophetically understand what I was seeing.  Did the circle stand for eternity?  What about the wings?  Was it a symbol of freedom, rising above, or a bird?  Maybe an eagle? I finally decided it was an eagle, since prophets are symbolized with this bird of prey.  It was then I heard the Lord say, “Eagle: Go FLY!”  I thought this interesting, because the name of my monthly prophetic school in Houston is “Learning to FLY” School of the Prophetic.  I decided to look up the meaning of the name of this particular brand to see if there was a meaning hidden within it.  God loves to surprise us with the nuggets that He hides inside of names of people and places, if we will just dig to find them.  I call it “God’s easter-egg hunt”. He hides things FOR us, not FROM us!

Then, last night on the way home, I saw a pickup truck that was all lit up! It had trailer lights on it, not just on the back, but down the sides and around the rear window.  I was in awe of this spectacle since it was so unusual! I watched it intently as it paraded in front of me at a traffic light and disappeared down the road.  More traffic followed it, so I eventually lost sight of it. After a little while I forgot about the lit-up pick-up, and simply sat at the light, waiting for it to change.

Shortly thereafter, it did, and I turned to head home.  As I drove down the street, I noticed that this very pickup, the one with all the lights on it, was directly in front of me!  I couldn’t believe it!  Quite a few minutes had passed, and a lot of Houston traffic, and yet STILL, somehow – this truck was directly in front of me!

I knew God was up to something.  At the next traffic light the lit-up pick-up’s tailgate was at eye level.  I saw something unusual about the tail gate of the lit-up pick-up.  My jaw dropped as I realized, much to my surprise, this truck’s logo was not a typical ram or a chevron or an oval, but an EAGLE!  The owner of this lit-up pick-up had removed the original logo of this vehicle, and in its place was a Flying Eagle!

Stunned, I got as close as I could without bumping the rear end of this truck to try to see the Eagle as closely as possible.  This eagle was poised to attack, wings spread wide as brakes to catch the air, ready to snatch its prey up with its talons.  Knowing the Lord was speaking, I pondered this in my heart, and headed home.

God wastes nothing! This morning, the Lord reminded me of the other symbol, the circle with the wings in it. On this company’s website* was an article about how this logo came into being.  I laughed as I read that it stood for the “god of harmony, intelligence and wisdom”.  It also said that the wings stand for “growth”, “improvement”, to “pursue ongoing improvements and to drive powerful, continuous growth”, and “flexible thinking, creativity, vitality, kindness and resilience”.

I have been asking the Lord for blueprints and strategies.  This sounds like a strategy and a blueprint to me! God was passing out instructions, Eagles! Here is your command: EAGLE – Go FLY!  You have been endued with POWER from on-high (see Luke 24:49). Much like the logo of the vehicle God showed me, you have been given the fruit of the Spirit according to Galations 5:22-23:

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.”

The eagle on the back of the lit-up pick-up was ready to pounce on its prey. The talons of the eagle are to be used for the PREY of the eagle and its enemies! An eagle’s talons are not intended as weapons to be used against other eagles; rather, they are to be used as tools, to hunt and to produce food. A pick-up truck symbolizes a working ministry, and this one was all lit-up and completely unique, emblazoned with the symbol of the eagle.  This was God speaking clearly about His lit-up ones – the burning ones, the shining ones – the unique ones: His Eagles!.

His instructions to His eagles are clear: EAGLE – Go FLY!  The God of all harmony (see Romans 15:5), intelligence (see Romans 11:34) and Wisdom (see Proverbs 8:12) instructs us to pursue ongoing improvements and to drive powerful, continuous Kingdom growth by flexible thinking, creativity, vitality, kindness and resilience.

That sounds like a Kingdom strategy to me! God has spoken! He has given us instructions.  Now follow them, and Eagle – Go FLY!

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!
