Shepherd's Rod 2009 - Bob Jones

Shepherd's Rod 2009 - The Year of Fire - Bob Jones
Nov 2 2008 07:29AM


This is a year of fire. Godly fire to the righteous; destructive fire to the wicked. It will be set by the peace pipe of the prophet. Peace will be the fire that will prepare the land to break up unproductive land. To those who stay in peace, understanding will be piped down to them but the wicked are like the restless sea; they will find no answer or rest. Fire will come before the plowing! This is a year of plowing. We will either plow in peace or in judgment but we will plow.

This fire will cleanse the land so this entire year is a preparation for plowing the land for sowing to be fruitful next year. 2010 will be a year of sowing, but not this year. When the ox plows, he sees nothing he can eat; he can only see the burned off ground with no purpose. He only plows in drudgery; but there will be no seeding or harvest without the plowing. Intercession is the ox that will bring the eagle, which will reveal how to pray, what to pray for and how to get our prayers answered.

Many shall come forth out of the fire with tried and proven faith and they will have the answer. And His name is JESUS! It is their council to agree or disagree; fire or no fire!” Flames or no flames! Man’s flame or His flame!

They shall come forth in the baptism of fire and they shall have authority over infirmities. They shall stretch forth their hands to do mighty signs and wonders and great grace shall be with them. Acts 4:30-33 While You stretch out Your hand to cure and to perform signs and wonders through the authority and by the power of the name of Your holy Child and Servant Jesus. And when they had prayed, the place in which they were assembled was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they continued to speak the Word of God with freedom and boldness and courage. Now the company of believers was of one heart and soul, and not one of them claimed that anything which he possessed was [exclusively] his own, but everything they had was in common and for the use of all. And with great strength and ability and power the apostles delivered their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace (loving-kindness and favor and goodwill) rested richly upon them all.

God is an all consuming Fire. Anything that is not of Him will be burned away; He is a purifying fire. Many shall come forth out of the fire of affliction as did the Hebrew children chosen by God.

Isaiah 48:10 Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried and chosen you in the furnace of affliction. In Daniel 3 King Nebuchadnezzar was full of fury when the three sons of righteousness would not bow down and worship his idol. They were thrown into the fiery furnace; seven times hotter than it was usually heated. The flame and sparks from the fire killed those men who handled Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. But this fire had no power upon their bodies, nor was the hair of their head singed; neither were their garments scorched nor the smell of smoke cling to them. We do the choosing; how long we stay in the furnace. If you remain faithful to it you come out chosen; pure! That which is of God in you will not burn but be revealed. It is a great testing for sincerity.


This should be a year of great signs and wonders because there will be great need, and great grace shall be there for those who believe. The cord that has been around the baby’s neck, which is the fear of man, will be removed so the Father will hear the cry of the babies. It is not still born but alive in Me says God. It will breathe and give living substance to those who will only believe.

They will cry out in your judgment remember mercy. Habakkuk 3:2 O Lord, I have heard the report of You and was afraid. O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make [Yourself] known! In wrath [earnestly] remember love, pity, and mercy. Mercy shall be the inspired word that comes out of the mouth of the Father. Matthew 4:4 But He replied, it has been written, Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.

Deuteronomy 8:3 And He humbled you and allowed you to hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you recognize and personally know that man does not live by bread only, but man lives by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord. When a baby cries, the parent responds quickly so His children can meet every challenge VICTORIOUSLY. There shall be songs of praise of angels mixing with the songs of praise of saints. Some times they will continue to sing when our praise stops. Common grace will no longer fall upon the wicked and righteous alike. For this is the year of separation of the wicked and the righteous. And the righteous shall come forth with divine grace which is the nine gifts of God. It shall bring forth free grace which is great salvation. 1 Corinthians 12:4 Now there are distinctive varieties and distributions of endowments (gifts, extraordinary powers distinguishing certain Christians, due to the power of divine grace operating in their souls by the Holy Spirit) and they vary, but the [Holy] Spirit remains the same.

This divine grace is the signs and wonders to bring about free grace which is power evangelism. Ephesians 2:7 He did this that He might clearly demonstrate through the ages to come the immeasurable (limitless, surpassing) riches of His free grace (His unmerited favor) in [His] kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus. Great grace will be revealed in the righteous this year as they stretch forth their hands to heal. Acts 4:33 And with great strength and ability and power the apostles delivered their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace (loving-kindness and favor and goodwill) rested richly upon them all.


In a vision Bonnie saw a narrow stone waterfall on the side of a green mountain; it had gone dry. Mercy for the wicked has come to an end.

Ezekiel 47:1-2 The man brought me back to the entrance of the temple, and I saw water coming out from under the threshold of the temple toward the east (for the temple faced east). The water was coming down from under the south side of the temple, south of the altar. 2 He then brought me out through the north gate and led me around the outside to the outer gate facing east, and the water was flowing from the south side. This flow from the temple will cease for the unbeliever but will not for those who believe and intercede. Ezekiel 9:1-61 [THE SPIRIT] cried in my ears [in the vision] with a loud voice, saying, Cause those to draw near who have charge over the city [as executioners], every man with his destroying weapon in his hand. 2 And behold, six men came from the direction of the Upper Gate, which faces north, every man with his battle-ax in his hand; and one man among them was clothed in linen, with a writer's ink bottle at his side. And they went in and stood beside the bronze altar. 3 And the glory of the God of Israel [the Shekinah, cloud] had gone up from the cherubim upon which it had rested to [stand above] the threshold of the [Lord's] house. And [the Lord] called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer's ink bottle at his side. 4 And the Lord said to him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in the midst of it. 5 And to the others He said in my hearing, Follow [the man with the ink bottle] through the city and smite; let not your eye spare, neither have any pity. 6 Slay outright the elderly, the young man and the virgin, the infant and the women; but do not touch or go near anyone on whom is the mark. Begin at My sanctuary. So they began with the old men who were in front of the temple [who did not have the Lord's mark on their foreheads]


In a trance, Bonnie was traveling through time and space in a green orb. Millions of stars were visible and flashes of lightening shot through the essence of space. There were several small green orbs moving near and far; however, the large green orb that surrounded her was scanning the earth. From far above, I could see the foundation of the earth. The Orb was searching for cracks where He might be able to fill them with His presence. As the enemy is coming to destroy by division the family unit, God is looking for a few good people who will not be lifted up in pride when He exalts them in ministry. We must be sealed in Him by the oil of the Holy Spirit. Cracks in our foundation appear when we get things out of order. How would you honor God? You would honor God by spending time with Him; for in ministry we must first spend time with God in relationship. That is our first priority. Our second priority is honoring our spouse. Third priority is honoring our children. Fourth priority is our relationship with His church. And our fifth priority is you and your ministry. If you keep these priorities in proper order, you will not fall.


The Apostles shall teach the truth and the truth will begin to set the church free. (Eph. 2:20) It’s the year many things the righteous has wanted to do; they have a list which was given them by inspiration that will be checked off – done! However, the wicked will have an X (or an ax) instead of a check mark for they will be cut off. The foundation is Apostles and Prophets and the Apostles will have great wisdom. I Corinthians 2:6 Yet when we are among the full-grown (spiritually mature Christians who are ripe in understanding), we do impart a [higher] wisdom (the knowledge of the divine plan previously hidden); but it is indeed not a wisdom of this present age or of this world nor of the leaders and rulers of this age, who are being brought to nothing and are doomed to pass away.


The flag of this nation shall hang low but it will recover in the next four years. America has lost her innocence so the testing shall be this year to see who is sincere and who is not. And your faith will fail you this year if it’s not in Jesus Christ. Daniel 11:34-35 Now when they fall, they shall receive a little help. Many shall join themselves to them with flatteries and hypocrisies. 35 And some of those who are wise, prudent, and understanding shall be weakened and fall, [thus, then, the insincere among the people will lose courage and become deserters. It will be a test] to refine, to purify, and to make those among [God's people] white, even to the time of the end, because it is yet for the time [God] appointed. There shall be reefs in the wicked’s love feasts. Bob saw gang rapes increasing on the streets. Both women and men being gang raped and not enough policemen to stop them.
He saw great tragedies in the families; totally breaking apart with neither father or mother protecting their children.

He saw women that do not know Christ easily led into prostitution and the increase of venereal diseases. He saw riots in the streets. They’ll need to call in the National Guard to squelch the rioting. At different times there will be anarchy in the streets. This was not so with the Lord’s children because crying grandmothers cried out day and night for mercy, and their daughters and grand daughters joined them in intercession for this nation. Many large businesses will fail and small businesses will replace them.


And this year the walk shall be hard to begin with. We shall walk through the sewers of man and begin to discern what is God and what is of man. Then we shall put our shoes on and follow God the rest of the year.


The Holy Spirit offends the mind to reveal the heart. If you are offended, the Holy Spirit will not be able to reveal the truth which will set you free. He will not violate your free will. So repent from your sins and seek Jesus and you’ll find Him. Many people have been offended because of the things that have happened and have actually left the church and gone home to sit. Lakeland is a good example of this. This is a thing they need to repent of and this is a sign of lack of faith and not understanding what the Holy Spirit was doing. People were running after signs and wonders not JESUS!

Lakeland was a testing to see if they were running after the fishes and loaves or the signs and wonders. Or were they really running after Jesus Christ? In John 2:23 – 25 Jesus was performing signs and wonders but He did not commit Himself to these people because He knew they were men and when men are lifted up instead of the Lord Jesus Christ, we should not be offended by what man does. But Lakeland’s signs and wonders were real and they were a testing and a preparation for the real thing, which will be the greatest showing on earth that will ever be! So the question will be John 6:67; Will we be offended and sit down in our faith or will we be like the Apostles that had no other place to go? John 6:67 Jesus said to the Twelve, Will you also go away? [And do you too desire to leave Me?] Will you believe the Lord Jesus Christ who loves His church and is raising it up now? Will you be a part of it, for where else will you go? Will you raise Jesus Christ up in your church and will you let the signs and wonders glorify your Father as in John 14:13? And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son.

Will you trust the Holy Spirit to move through you? For what did you have before Lakeland? So where else would you go? Believe and receive! For when you lift man up, he will come down; but when you lift up the Lord Jesus Christ, you will never come down. Offense is sin on the one offended. If you know who man is, you will never be disappointed or offended in what he does.

THE ALL KNOWING EYE The all knowing, all seeing Eye is upon the righteous to deliver him out of all his fears. (Job 34:21 [God's] eyes are upon the ways of a man, and He sees all his steps. Psalm 34:4 I sought (inquired of) the Lord and required Him [of necessity and on the authority of His Word], and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. The Eye when He sees godly sorrow, will grant repentance. The all consuming fire of God will reduce past sins to ashes. II Timothy 2:25 He must correct his opponents with courtesy and gentleness, in the hope that God may grant that they will repent and come to know the Truth (that they will perceive and recognize and become accurately acquainted with and acknowledge it)

This will be a very, very hard year but the righteous will be given a little help when they look to their Lord. II Corinthians 7:11 For [you can look back now and] observe what this same godly sorrow has done for you and has produced in you: what eagerness and earnest care to explain and clear yourselves [of all complicity in the condoning of incest], what indignation [at the sin], what alarm, what yearning, what zeal [to do justice to all concerned], what readiness to mete out punishment [to the offender]! At every point you have proved yourselves cleared and guiltless in the matter.


In a vision, Bob rolled back the moss on a bank to uncover Jacob’s gold watch and band. It had been lost since 1936. He was surprised to discover it was still running. TIME is not quite yet for the great harvest but it is a time for preparation for the harvest that will begin in four years. Time was created for man NOT man created for time. It is a golden time for the body of Christ.

A 21 jewel gold watch that represents the number of the true Apostles in the New Testament. It had a golden band which represents the band of mankind (women and men) that will be banded together. They who are wise as serpents and harmless as doves. Matthew 10:16 Behold, I am sending you out like sheep in the midst of wolves; be wary and wise as serpents, and be innocent (harmless, guileless, and without falsity) as doves. These will be our new leaders; the new breed. They will have WISDOM of the time to tell the church what to do. They will be as the sons of Issachar and all their Christian brothers will be at their disposal.

1 Chronicles 12:32 And of Issachar, men who had understanding of the times to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs; and all their kinsmen were under their command. Luke 12:56, 57 You play actors (hypocrites)! You know how [intelligently] to discern and interpret and prove the looks of the earth and sky; but how is it that you do not know how to discern and interpret and apply the proof to this present time? 57 And why do you not judge what is just and personally decide what is right? Note: there is a further reference on page #42 to the year 1936 in the section TWO WITNESSES in a later section of the book.


This is the year of the woman! Those over 50 coming forth to show mothers and sisters how to live successfully through this troubled time. Recently Bonnie had a vision of an old granny driving her old jalopy. She darted in and out of traffic while the police were in hot pursuit of her. Cars and trucks got out of her way, a semi almost overturned to avoid hitting her while she sped on. Quickly she darted onto a side street out of sight from the police. They continue in pursuit never seeing her turn. She brought her jalopy to a screeching halt and quickly turning around looking over her right shoulder put her right thumb up and yelped “tee hee!!” She had out run the law. She knew who she was in Christ and she was no longer under the law but under grace.

The law of man has kept women quiet in the church and this is the year the women come forth; especially the women over 50, the grandmothers and great grandmothers who have faithfully served in silence. Their prayers and intercession have been heard before the throne of God and He’s calling them to step up to the plate and take their rightful position in the body of Christ. Women have birthed this season in the history of mankind. We need wise women to deliver us this year. In 2 Timothy 1, Paul reminds Timothy of the wisdom his grandmother Lois and mother Eunice imparted to him. Grandmothers are leading their sons and grandsons to their knees. There is no answer short of God. 2 Timothy 1:5-6 I am calling up memories of your sincere and unqualified faith (the leaning of your entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), [a faith] that first lived permanently in [the heart of] your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am [fully] persuaded, [dwells] in you also. 6 That is why I would remind you to stir up (rekindle the embers of, fan the flame of, and keep burning) the [gracious] gift of God, [the inner fire] that is in you by means of the laying on of my hands [with those of the elders at your ordination].

Only Jesus at His death fully completed all that He was called to do in His life on earth. The rest of us will always fall short of our calling. We all have ancestors who for different reasons never completed their calling in Christ. Their gifts are still available because of bloodline blessings. It’s time to ask God for our spiritual inheritance; that which our ancestors left incomplete. We need to ask God to grant us the wisdom, mercy and grace to walk out that which we were called to.


In this Psalm, it is David’s Son Jesus crying out to Papa. In return for His Son’s love and majesty, they have turned against Him with evil intent and wickedness of their own hearts. There has been a separation between the wicked and the righteous; common grace is gone. It will no longer rain blessings on the wicked. God will only bless the righteous.

Warning for the wicked
Verse 1-20

If the church doesn’t pray, a wicked man shall reign over this nation. And the curse that comes with wickedness shall come to this nation. 1 O GOD of my praise! Keep not silence, 2 For the mouths of the wicked and the mouth of deceit are opened against me; they have spoken to me and against me with lying tongues. 3 They have compassed me about also with words of hatred and have fought against me without a cause. 4 In return for my love they are my adversaries, but I resort to prayer. 5 And they have rewarded and laid upon me evil for good, and hatred for my love. 6 Set a wicked man over him [as a judge], and let [a malicious] accuser stand at his right hand. 7 When [the wicked] is judged, let him be condemned, and let his prayer [for leniency] be turned into a sin. 8 Let his days be few; and let another take his office and charge. 9 Let his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. 10 Let his children be continual vagabonds [as was Cain] and beg; let them seek their bread and be driven far from their ruined homes. This speaks of the housing bubble. 11 Let the creditor and extortioner seize all that he has; and let strangers (barbarians and foreigners) plunder the fruits of his labor. Our enemies are plundering us. Oil and energy is bankrupting this nation. 12 Let there be none to extend or continue mercy and kindness to him, neither let there be any to have pity on his fatherless children. 13 Let his posterity be cut off, and in the generation following let their names be blotted out. 14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered by the Lord; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out. 15 Let them be before the Lord continually, that He may cut off the memory of them from the earth! — 16 Because the man did not [earnestly] remember to show mercy, but pursued and persecuted the poor and needy man, and the broken in heart [he was ready] to slay. 17 Yes, he loved cursing, and it came [back] upon him; he delighted not in blessing, and it was far from him. Man pronounced a curse over himself and it shall come back on him. 18 He clothed himself also with cursing as with his garment, and it seeped into his inward [life] like water, and like oil into his bones. 19 Let it be to him as the raiment with which he covers himself and as the girdle with which he is girded continually. 20 Let this be the reward of my adversaries from the Lord, and of those who speak evil against my life.

God Hears the Prayer of the Righteous
Verse 21 - 31

21 But You deal with me and act for me, O God the Lord, for Your name's sake; because Your mercy and loving-kindness are good, O deliver me. When I cry out to You Lord, I will receive Your mercy and kindness. He hears the cry of the righteous but not the wicked. 22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded and stricken within me. I am poor in spirit but mine is the Kingdom of Heaven. (Matthew 5:3)Blessed (happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous — with life-joy and satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the poor in spirit (the humble, who rate themselves insignificant), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven! 23 I am gone like the shadow when it lengthens and declines; I toss up and down and am shaken off as the locust. I am grieved because of the wickedness. 24 My knees are weak and totter from fasting; and my body is gaunt and has no fatness. I am crying out in intercession day and night. 25 I have become also a reproach and a taunt to others; when they see me, they shake their heads. I am mocked and despised like Jesus was because of my love for You Lord God. 26 Help me, O Lord my God; O save me according to Your mercy and loving-kindness! — Help Lord according to Your mercy and loving kindness. 27 That they may know that this is Your hand, that You, Lord, have done it. Lord show Yourself strong on behalf of the righteous. 28 & 29 Let them curse, but do You bless. When adversaries arise, let them be put to shame, but let Your servant rejoice. 29 Let my adversaries be clothed with shame and dishonor, and let them cover themselves with their own disgrace and confusion as with a robe. Let my enemies eat by the words of their own mouth. 30 I will give great praise and thanks to the Lord with my mouth; yes, and I will praise Him among the multitude. With my tongue, I will praise God and my tongue shall bring blessings upon my life. 31 For He will stand at the right hand of the poor and needy, to save him from those who condemn his life. Blessed are the poor and needy for the Lord is their defender and provider.

August 4, 2008

Although the revelation of the New Breed came in August of this year, we felt it was important to include in this year’s Shepherd’s Rod. As the plumb line has been dropped or the line drawn in the sand, there is a calling forth of the holy ones to walk with God. He is a holy God and He is looking for a holy people to dwell not only in His presence occasionally, but to reside in Him. Where fear of man cannot reach, sin cannot dwell and compromise is not an option. God is looking for a people who will not be part time lovers but enveloped in His Love, taking on the divine nature of His Son Jesus. There is a coming forth of the NEW BREED! They are not old and they are not young. They will come forth in the Spirit of Holiness. Romans 1:4 And [as to His divine nature] according to the Spirit of holiness was openly designated the Son of God in power [in a striking, triumphant and miraculous manner] by His resurrection from the dead, even Jesus Christ our Lord (the Messiah, the Anointed One). The Spirit of Holiness coming forth is the divine nature of Christ

2 Peter 1:4-10 By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature. 5 For this very reason, adding your diligence [to the divine promises], employ every effort in exercising your faith to develop virtue (excellence, resolution, Christian energy), and in [exercising] virtue [develop] knowledge (intelligence), 6 And in [exercising] knowledge [develop] self-control, and in [exercising] self-control [develop] steadfastness (patience, endurance), and in [exercising] steadfastness [develop] godliness (piety),
7 And in [exercising] godliness [develop] brotherly affection, and in [exercising] brotherly affection [develop] Christian love. 8 For as these qualities are yours and increasingly abound in you, they will keep [you] from being idle or unfruitful unto the [full personal] knowledge of our Lord Jesus ChristJohn 15:15 I do not call you servants (slaves) any longer; for the servant does not know what his master is doing (working out). But I have called you My friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from My Father. [I have revealed to you everything that I have learned from Him.] The Spirit of holiness coming forth will have resurrection power in it and this power will bring the obedience of what Christ called us to.
(the Messiah, the Anointed One) . 9 For whoever lacks these qualities is blind, [spiritually] shortsighted, seeing only what is near to him, and has become oblivious [to the fact] that he was cleansed from his old sins. 10 Because of this, brethren, be all the more solicitous and eager to make sure (to ratify, to strengthen, to make steadfast) your calling and election; for if you do this, you will never stumble or fall. The new breed shall be of the divine nature and will be a friend with God.

Mt 10:8 Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons. Freely (without pay) you have received, freely (without charge) give. Most of the people Bob saw were between the ages of 25 & 40. They will be the first of the new breed which others will immediately begin to follow and they will not fall back. The Spirit of Holiness is different than the Holy Spirit although it works by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of Holiness is the nature of Christ in you coming forth in maturity. ChristPaul’s prayer will be answered; he travailed until Christ be formed in you. (Gal 4:19) suffering birth pangs until Christ is formed in us. Those who will walk forth in the Spirit of Holiness will be individuals who will represent Christ in a new level of maturity. These will be the first of the great youth leaders which countless numbers will follow. Christ was the first of the new breed coming forth resurrected by the Spirit of Holiness. This new breed will be motivated by the Spirit of God doing nothing of themselves but only doing what they see the Father doing. John 5:19 So Jesus answered them by saying I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the Son is able to do nothing of Himself (of His own accord); but He is able to do only what He sees the Father doing, what the Son does in the same way (in His turn). formed in you to a new level of maturity.

December 3, 2006

As you read this experience that Bob had in December 2006, keep in mind that we do not have much understanding about heavenly beings. Roland Buck referred to them as angels with substance. King Nebuchadnezzar and Daniel both speak of watcher angels; a holy one that came down from Heaven in Daniel 4:13-23. 13 I saw in the visions of my head [as I lay] on my bed, and behold, a watcher, a holy one, came down from heaven. 17 This sentence is by the decree of the [heavenly] watchers and the decision is by the word of the holy ones, to the intent that the living may know that the Most High [God] rules the kingdom of mankind and gives it to whomever He will and sets over it the humblest and lowliest of men.

23 And whereas the king saw a watcher, a holy one, coming down from heaven and saying, Cut the tree down and destroy it, but leave the stump of its roots in the earth with a band of iron and bronze around it, in the tender grass of the field; and let him be wet with the dew of the heavens, and let his portion be with the living creatures of the field until seven times [or years] pass over him — Bob was in a trance. He saw footsteps in the living room so he began cleansing it. He was concerned because the footsteps did not disappear but went all the way to the front door. Bob opened the door commanding the evil spirits to leave but since the footsteps did not, he commanded “if this is from God, manifest yourself.” Immediately a very small thin woman appeared from the north and entered into the house. She was only about three feet tall. She was dressed very plainly, nothing outstanding about her. Then a man manifested and sat in our new gold chair nearest the bedroom door. Bob said they both looked to be about 55 – 60 years old. He was thin and ordinary looking also and was dressed in a suit. Bob asked the man……….”who are you?” He responded………”Charlie” and said they were created by Jesus and were sent to us for this time in history. I stood by the bedroom door with several other women surrounding the small woman and conversing with her. Bob asked Charlie……”do you have a message?” He said the last purpose they both had was 70 years ago (1936). They were both living beings (angels). Her name was Irma. He pointed to the woman; she was now about five feet tall. She was talking to a group of women about coming along side their husbands and giving them hot bread. They said they were released for NOW! They were released for Jacob’s blessings to be fulfilled in them. It’s interesting to note that when Charlie and Irma were removed from the earth in 1936, four evil men rose up and began to take power; Hitler, Mussolini, Tojo and Stalin.

Then they took Bob back in time 6,000 years and showed him the earth and how it was before it was cursed by disobedience. It was the garden. He saw ancient animals and felt extreme peace. In the beginning God!

Charlie said they would return with further instructions! (See section Charlie & the Banker) BobIrma means – exalted one, excellent virtue Acts 2:28 You have made known to me the ways of life; You will enrapture me [diffusing my soul with joy] with and in Your presence. Two years ago the word came to begin to call the women to come along side the men and take their rightful place in the body of Christ. **Charlie means – manly, courageous Joshua 1:9 Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. This is the Joshua generation (over 50’s) coming into maturity. heard the Lord say Romans 4:18; he asked what time it was………..4:18 a.m. Whatever you do, no matter how bad it looks don’t give up faith. For the just shall live by faith. Romans 4:18 [For Abraham, human reason for] hope being gone, hoped in faith that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been promised, So [numberless] shall your descendants be. **


January 24, 2007

Bob had a dream where he and I were in a bank. As we walked up to the teller’s counter, CharlieCharlie said “here’s a man that wants to meet you.” The man said “I really love your mother. He talks to her all the time. I’ve heard of you and wanted to meet you.” Bob knew that this was a heavenly being; his mother has been with the Lord for many years. Then they shook hands; although he did not offer his name. The man stood about six feet tall and bald on top with brown hair around the sides. He had hazel eyes and wore glasses. He was about 55-60 years old. Bob was walking with his cane and said “I feel like Methuselah, all my people have gone home.” The angel said, “don’t worry about that. “ He said he was released to help people bank. He was the Vice President of the International Bank. He had power and might. and another man stood on the other side.

Matt Sorger: Polarization

Note: This is the third word I've seen recently talking about refining/polarizing/shaking: God is polarizing the Church - those that will cling to Him, and those that will cling to something else - and then He's bringing us into a new season. One of the others can be found (as a video stream) here. --Editor

From Matt Sorger:

The Holy Spirit spoke very expressly to me tonight. When I stood in the office before coming into the room tonight I heard the inner audible voice of the Spirit of God speak to me a word for tonight. But as I sat in this seat, I was taken in the Spirit. And the Lord spoke a very clear word that I want to declare right now.

Holy Spirit said to me that He’s releasing a "clear water revival". And He spoke it over and over and over again to me – clear water, clear water, clear water, clear water -- He’s releasing a "clear water revival". And He said that this move of the Spirit will not be tainted or touched by the hands of man or flesh. It will not be tainted. Listen to what the word of the Lord is saying tonight because this is a very pivotal moment in the Spirit right now. The Lord said that He is releasing a "clear water revival" and that this move of the Spirit will not be tainted by the flesh of man.


And then He spoke to me and He said that tonight is a night of crossing over. He said that tonight the church is crossing over into a new season. And the Lord said "Mark this date in your bible; mark it on your calendar". Tonight we have crossed over into a new season in the Spirit and the Lord said from this moment forward: black will become very black and white will become very white. And the Lord said He is removing the grey areas. Black will become very black and white will become very white. He said there’s coming a great polarization even within the body of Christ.

He says this very night something has been set in motion in the spiritual realm. And it’s bigger than just this meeting. It’s over the body of Christ in America. Something has been set in motion tonight in the spiritual realm.

Yesterday was the Day of Atonement (Oct. 9), the last day of the ten days of awe of the season of Rosh Hashanah. And the Holy Spirit spoke to me tonight, we have crossed over, church, into a new spiritual season. Tonight is the first night of it. We’re about to see some very dramatic things happen within the body of Christ. Listen to what I’m saying to you tonight. We’re about to see very, very dramatic things happen within the body of Christ.


And what I sense also in my heart is that there’s a new wineskin that God’s raising up; there’s a new wineskin Holy Spirit is forming. You know years ago – 16 years ago – Holy Spirit spoke to me that there’s a new breed that God’s raising up. See God started to prepare a new breed 16 years ago. We’re coming into a season of release right now. New wineskins are going to be released and raised up and there are going to be new apostolic works birthed in the earth. They’re already being birthed right now. And the wineskin is going to look very, very different.

There’s wells of revivals that God is opening up within cities right now. And I have a feeling that this word I’m speaking tonight is a whole lot bigger than what we’re seeing in this room. I’m telling you the truth. I saw it clearly as I’ve seen anything in the spirit tonight. There is a supernatural polarization that is being loosed in the spirit realm.

And last night I was talking about the fear of Lord. For those who will come under the umbrella of the fear of the Lord in this hour, tremendous glory will be given to them. Listen to what I’m saying. Those who come under the fear of the Lord in this hour will come under tremendous glory.


Grey areas are about to be dealt with. There is coming a new housecleaning to the body of Christ. There is a supernatural housecleaning coming to the body of Christ. And every single grey area of compromise is about to be swept clean. Because the Lord said that this is a clear water revival. This is going to be very clean and pure. Very clean and pure. Pristine water. Pristine water. It’s going to be unlike anything the world has ever seen before. Very pristine water. Crystal, crystal clear. Because God has been preparing over the last 16 years a new breed that will be ready to carry and flow with this move of the Spirit of God.

They have been hidden away in caves. These vessels have been hidden away in caves. And God has been working a pure, refined heart and spirit on the inside of them. God has been working a pure, refined heart of gold on the inside of them. And God has been causing step by step their hearts to be turned away from the things of this world toward the things of His Spirit. Step by step God has been dealing. Step by step God has been refining. Step by step God has been causing hearts of pure gold to come forth to be prepared, so that this move of God can be sustained in the earth.


God is not looking – hear what the Spirit of the Lord says right now – God is not looking for gifted individuals. God is looking for pure, clean vessels that have been refined in the fire of God. God is not looking for your human giftedness. He is looking for pure, refined vessels that have walked through the fire of God. God is all over this tonight and God is all over you tonight.

God’s getting the bride ready. He’s getting the bride ready for His coming. He’s calling. He’s calling the bride. Get your garments ready. Get your wedding dress ready.

Today I bought a ring; it’s called a purity ring. And written right on the front is the word PURITY. And on the back is the scripture Matthew 5. It is a prophetic sign for the body of Christ right now because the Lord’s not coming back for a harlot; He’s coming back for a bride. He’s not coming back for a harlot that’s running all around with different idols. He’s coming back for a pure, spotless, clean bride.

And I went into the word in Matthew 5 right before the service and I was reading the scripture in Matt 5:13, "You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost it’s taste (it’s quality) how can its saltiness be restored. It is not good for anything any longer, but to be thrown out and trodden under foot by men."

You are the salt of the earth. If the salt has lost its quality, It’s good for nothing. Quality! God is looking for a quality believer tonight. Then in verse eight, "blessed (happy, enviably fortunate, spiritually prosperous, possessing the happiness produced by the experience of God’s favor, and especially conditioned by the revelation of His grace, regardless of their outward condition, regardless of what their natural circumstances are, regardless of what they have in the natural, regardless of their outward conditions) blessed happy are the pure in heart for they shall see God."

The pure in heart: hearts refined as gold; hearts that have been through the fire; hearts that have been prepared by God. Verse six, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness." Many of our bibles say "for they will be filled." Amplified says "for they shall be completely satisfied."

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (purity, cleanness) they will live a life of complete satisfaction. Complete satisfaction. Completely satisfied on the inside.


It’s not about a title or a ministry. Nothing that will build the pride of man up. It’s about those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, they are the ones who will live with one hundred percent complete satisfaction in their lives. They will be satisfied. They will have a life joy in their lives. A life joy. Do you know what a life joy is? A life joy is not a temporary moment of happiness because of a good circumstance in your life. A life joy is because your life has been completely filled with the righteousness of God. A deep satisfaction on the inside of you that man can’t take away, that circumstances can’t take away, and certainly the devil can’t take away.

A deep righteousness on the inside. A deep life joy. A deep satisfaction. How many here want to live a life of satisfaction? That you just have that sense of being satisfied. You’re not striving. You’re not unhappy in your moment. Listen you’ve got to learn to enjoy your moment while you’re on the way to where you’re going.

You can still have vision for the future and at the same time be completely satisfied on the inside of you. You can still have unfulfilled vision in your life and yet at the same moment live completely satisfied on the inside of you.

A Warning to Alaska, The Horses Are Coming!

Dr. Robin Harfouche

Prophetic Word given in Chugiak, Alaska on November 19th, 2008


The world’s eyes right now are on Alaska. Be it far from me to have known 8 years ago—when I started coming up to Alaska—that it was going to matter to the rest of the world.   I have spent the last 3 nights up, praying in the Holy Ghost for Alaska, and the pain of the travail was great.  I asked the Lord, “Why do I hurt so bad?” and He replied, “Because if you walk with the footmen and they have wearied you, how are you going to run with the horses?”

“If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses*? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?”

Jeremiah 12:5 KJV

* Horses representation of opposition and promotion 

What is about to happen to the state of Alaska?  Alaska is about to be overrun by oil people!  There is going to be a lot of wheelin’ and dealin’ going on…a lot of money changing hands…there will be strategies, transactions, and discussions going on behind closed doors that you know not of.  If you don’t have your eyes open you will be swindled. The oil companies will try to purchase your land and take it from you—but yet make it look as if it were an answer from Heaven.  Be aware, Alaska. 

If you have walked with the footmen and have been weary—you better watch out—because the horses are coming! If you are weary now with what God has given you, what are you going to do when a horse runs you over? 

Alaska, you have been with the footmen, and have kept the horses out till this point.   You can’t keep out the horses—but you can steer them in the right direction.  You can’t keep them out—but you can get a reign on them.  You can steer them where Jesus tells you He wants them to go.  As you take your authority and dominion—and reign over the horses—they will not tread over your land.  You can’t let them run you down or run you over.  I am speaking to Spirit-filled believers:  Govern what God has put in your hands—not just in the natural—but in the Spirit.  If God has given you strength in the Spirit over Alaska, then you need to start executing it and using it.  Binding and loosing.  Exercise your authority!

The world is watching and all eyes turn—including China and North Korea—and all the eyes of the world turn to Alaska!  They turn and they look…. and all of a sudden it is found there is enough wealth in Alaska to make America an independent country.  But Alaska will not be raped!  God sent a prophet up here to tell you we need to pray and have discernment—especially over the next 2 years. 


I am here to warn you that the horses are coming.  I am here to warn anyone who owns anything, anyone who is in business, or owns a business:  Keep your eyes and ears open and ask the Holy Spirit for discernment of the spirit before you make decisions on anything…because God has placed reservoirs of hidden treasure in this country.  You hear about people calling this God’s country.  Yes, this is Gods country.  Eskimos tell me they are a people of the land—yes, you are people of the land—but this is God’s land too!  What does God want to use Alaska for?  To save us!  You moved up here to get away from the population.  Well I have news!  You have only been with the footmen so far…the horses are coming and on their way. 

I don’t know where you are going to move next?  I don’t think there is anywhere else in America that is more remote than here?  Where are you going to go next? I’m talking about us Christians!  We are the obstacle that is keeping the manifestation of the one-world government.  We are the obstacle that is keeping the manifestation of the antichrist.  We are the obstacle that prevents evil from taking over the entire planet.  We are the obstacle that is standing in the way of the spirit of mammon.   And it would be just like God to take the foolish things of this world to confound the wise—to get an innocent people like the Alaskan people— that would stand in the way of the manifestation of the antichrist.

The horses and horsemen are coming fast!  If you handle it right, you will see blessing and God-results.  If you do not handle it with the wisdom of Christ, you will have man-results.  You will not be happy in 10 years if you don’t make the right decision in the next 2 years.  The decisions the people of God make within the next 2 years will determine what is going to happen to the rest of America and the rest of the world!  You may think, “How is God going to change the world with just 600,000 people.”  Well how about that 120 that were in the upper room? 


Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

Joshua 1:3 KJV

If you own something don’t sell it!  I don’t care what you own! I don’t care if it’s a pea patch—don’t sell it!  Keep your feet on it!  Say, “Right where my feet stand…that is the land that Jesus has given me.”  Jesus said that in the last days there was going to be a great transference of wealth.  He’s gotta transfer wealth into the hands of His people for the preaching of the Gospel—and in the middle of it you will be blessed.  Goodness and mercy follow me all the days of my life—followed all the way up here.  “Well all I own is a tackle store.”  That’s when the footmen were here!  How about when the horses come?  They are going to want to turn that tackle store into a Super-Super Wal-Mart.  But if you have your feet on it—you can negotiate by the Holy Ghost….through word of knowledge and word of wisdom—and quadruple-zillion the price!  Keep your foot on it Alaska, because you don’t know what’s underneath it!!!! 


All of a sudden a spotlight came on Alaska—and a depression came on!  And you felt it! Especially in the last 6 to 7 weeks.  Right then is when it came on because the world, the mammon…that dirty devil…that is his only power...the mammon and the money.  He looked this direction! 

All we have to do is recognize that is what happened. Everybody has been saying, “What’s wrong with me?” “What’s wrong with me?” “Why do I feel like running?” “Why do I feel like turning everything in?” This is just warfare! This is not you! It’s been a little abnormal, hasn’t it? How about trust? Hasn’t that been a little more difficult for you than normal?  Other symptoms…exhaustion.  You haven’t been able to keep your mind focused.  You have been numb. Your physical body has been having pain.  You haven’t been feeling like getting up in the morning.  You haven’t been able to see clearly.  I came here to break it off you—and I’m going to break it off the state while I’m up here.  Again, these are just lying symptoms of the spirit of mammon that is trying to move in.

When the mammon devil starts looking at you—mammon is the power of the devil—that’s his only power. The Anointing is the power of God. The anointing will destroy every yoke. Mammon is the power that operates in the world and runs the world’s system. Mammon is a spirit. The Bible says you can’t love mammon and God at the same time. You will love one and hate the other. Mammon turns its eyes towards Alaska and says, “Oh, I can go in there, buy up their land, and offer them wealth as those people are ignorant and don’t know any better.” 

Praise God, we are neither unaware nor ignorant of the enemies schemes!

Be encouraged Alaska!  When international attention comes to you, then God sends more angels than ever before to that one place. Alaska has more angels with it now than it had 5 years ago.  Because international attention came here—and the spirit of mammon and the spirit of man comes in to steal and try to get his way through—but God will send His hosts to take care of you. 

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, they you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and have done all, stand.

     Ephesians 6:10 NIV

In the original language, that position of stance is “stand” but you’re leaning forward. It’s not a stance of ease; it’s a stance of aggression. The only enemy that we really face is ignorance of the Word of God.  Why? Because all of the power of the world, all the power of money, all the power of mammon cannot defeat the anointing— it can’t. But handling the transference of wealth takes wisdom, takes anointing, it takes loving Jesus with all of your heart. Being a steward over what God gives you when He gives you a lot—it takes a lot of wisdom and a lot of leaning on God. Trust in Him. He’ll give us direction. God has made us a steward.  We’ll take care of it…it’s His stuff. We’ll take care of it.


If you stumble in the safe country, how will you manage with the thickets by the Jordan?

      Jeremiah 12:5b NIV

In the King James, it says, “And if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?”  The swelling is HARVEST.  When Jordan swells, it’s about to be harvest time.  So what the Scripture is saying is this:  If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how are you going to compete with the horses (promotion)? And if you stumble in the safe country how will you manage at harvest time? 

The swelling of Jordan is the harvest timeJordan will swell up and overflow its banks when it’s getting ready to be harvest time.  You want to know what time it is in Alaska?  You have been with the footmen…and the horses (promotion) are on the way.  Why? Because it is your harvest time!  It is harvest time—harvest time for Alaska!  And it is no accident that Alaska is coming up on its 50th year as a state!  Hallelujah! Harvest time—not just talking about money—talking about people.  People that are going to be saved because of your wisdom, because of your prayers—people are going to be saved.

What did I come to Alaska to say? Get Ready, get ready, get ready!  Get ready for what?  Get ready for an over-abundance of ridiculous proportions of blessing!   And an overabundance of prosperity that you will not be swindled from, and no one will be able to take from you—if you stay hooked up to the Holy Ghost.  Stay close—He will direct you every step of the way.  God wants you to get your hands on the money!    God wants you blessed!  God wants you abundantly blessed more than you can imagine or think.  God wants your lands blessed! 

Oh yeah… but if you run with the footmen and they have worn you out, how can you run with the horses?  I’m just here to tell you that the horses are coming.  And I’m here to tell you that the Christians that are in Alaska and that are born again and hear God—matter.

I’m here to tell you…the horses are coming.  This is not a negative word, this is just a real word and a word to the born again, Spirit-filled believer.  Listen to Jesus and do what Jesus says to do, don’t do anything unless Jesus says do it, don’t move unless Jesus tells you to move.   Stay close to the moving of His Spirit, and let Him guide and direct you—and you will find an overflow of blessing of the transference of wealth. 

Get ready, it is upon you, Alaska.

Two More Catastrophes

prophesied November 23, 2008:

kim clement"For there shall be two more catastrophes that shall not bring great numbers of death, and they will not be in the obvious places where people so easily can predict. No more on Louisiana, no more on Texas! There shall be little ones but they shall be laughed at."Remember the words of the Lord tonight.

"Chicago shall be shaken and they will say, 'Oh my God, this is one of the worst,' and then suddenly it will turn around and go the other way to a place where there are no people. But there shall be a lesson learned."

God says, "There will be another place and it is unfortunately California, so easy to prophesy about it because of the earthquakes, but one shall surely happen and there shall be such a divine intervention." God said, "The people that have lifted their finger and used the news media to mock Me and those that have said, 'We will never bow our knee,' as Voltaire said, will bow their knee." And God says, "I will shake the very homes and lives of certain ones."

I will Bring Forth a Righteous Media

"Michael Moore, do you really believe that I will kill innocent lives? I will shake you and you will make public appearance with your lip hanging," and God says, "I will keep you alive, I will not allow death to take you until you have sputtered out My name. This shall shake the community in Hollywood," and God says, "out of that shaking I will bring forth a righteous media that shall affect your children," says the Lord!

We declare righteousness on this Nation. God's going to invade the news media. God's going to invade every media that there is. He's going to challenge them. Oh yes, they will carry on reporting the bad news, but God said, "I will interrupt them and there shall be a shaking. And once I've shaken California, I will move to New York into Chicago, and you shall hear the sounds of victory," says the Lord of Hosts!

The Key I Give will Unlock Resurrection

Lord, You have given unto us the key of David and so it is, we shall unlock the mysteries of the Scriptures, for we have not unlocked everything. And these mysteries in the Scriptures that will be unlocked shall once again reveal the awesomeness, omniscience, omnipotence, omnipresence of our God in America.

Third world nations will no longer laugh at You and say, "Where are Your miracles? Look at ours." For God said, "The key that I give to you will unlock resurrection. Tonight, you prophesied 'rise up' and so it shall be even in your economy," says the Spirit of the Living God.

Healing Room Testimonies from Silverdale

In the Spirit of Revelation 19:10, "...the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” "Hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches!"

I'm watching as more and more testimonies of God healing people are popping up. It's very exciting, and it's a clear testimony that God is bringing us back into the healing business (though admittedly not all of the church has been out of that work). 

Here are two from the healing rooms in Silverdale, WA, in their own handwriting. 

Vision of this Whirlwind of FIRE Trailblazing Across OREGON

"I saw a Vision of this Whirlwind of FIRE Trailblazing Across OREGON"

Dear Denny,

I had a vision of you while Todd Bentley was praying for you at the meetings in Lakeland, when we were up on the platform together.

I saw a vision of this whirlwind of fire--trailblazing across Oregon, and it was burning up forest trees and the fire was spreading and it was getting larger and larger and it began to consume towns and cities--all across the State of Oregon.

As I watched, I also saw that it began to pull "golden stones" (people) out of the ground--they were alive. As these came out of the ground, they swirled within this whirlwind of fire and they were full of life. I saw these golden stones begin to shine really bright and then they were flung out all over the nation of America. Hot, golden living stones.

The Lord is showing me that what is taking place with you and your ministry, Denny (based in Albany, Oregon), is going to set Oregon on fire.

The Lord is also showing me a city--Medford, Oregon. The reason I know of this city is because my parents used to live there. I also saw that this fire touched Medford in a great way. The wind is blowing and the fire is burning and watch out Oregon, here it comes! Many people will be sent out from Oregon--golden stones to touch the nation.

Treasure Hunt Testimonies

In the Spirit of Revelation 19:10, "...the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

December 7, 2008, Bellis Fair Mall
Attendance: 19 people

Here is my testimony from today's Treasure Hunt. We had such a good time...everyone was really excited. Testimonies from other teams may follow!


The Treasure Hunt at Bellis Fair Mall today (December 7) was really energizing! First we all met together in a "quiet" corner of the food court for prayer and some instruction from Michael Peters. We took a few minutes to practice on each other what we would say as we approached someone whom God had highlighted. And then we prayerfully wrote our Treasure Maps, listening to God for clues in 5 categories..Location, Person's Name, Appearance, Prayer Needs and The Unusual.

My team consisted of two middle aged adults (Shaaron and Glenn) a high-school girl (Briana) and two 5th Graders (Maddie and Megan).ALL Treasure Hunt Newbies! Both Briana and Glenn had "Kiosk" on their list, and Briana had in "Cell Phone Kiosk." I had Black/Red Clothing, so we stopped to talk to Robert, who works at a cell phone kiosk and was dressed in black & red with bright red tennis shoes. Three of us had "Family Issues" on our Prayer Needs list, and I'll bet you can guess what Robert wanted prayer for. He is a Christian and he had his Bible right in the Kiosk with him, but God apparently wanted to encourage him because near the end of the Treasure Hunt time we saw ANOTHER TEAM praying with him too...out of all the people at the mall during the Christmas season!

Since the "Body Shop" is a small store, just Briana and I went in to pray for Rachel, the girl who matched the description God had given us. Rachel was very receptive, in fact she herself pointed out "Ankle" and "Wrist" on my list, noting that she has tattoos in both locations. Now the really cool thing about this visit was.the only other customer in the store at this time was a guy (with his girlfriend) who had been sitting at a table right next to our food court gathering place, trying intently to listen in and see what the heck we were up to! God saw fit to give him a first-hand demonstration!

Briana had "Payless Shoes" on her list along with "Black Shiny High Heels." I had "Black Leather Jacket," "Red Hair," and the name "Morgan." Maddie pointed out a red-haired lady with black shiny heels and a black leather jacket, so we went to talk to her. Turns out she has a niece named Morgan and she is JEHOVA'S WITNESS! She didn't really want us to pray with her, but she was very nice and seemed kind of blown away. Her family (I assume), including a couple of teenage girls, witnessed the whole thing. Sweet!

Megan (age 10) had "Bookstore" on her list, and Maddie (also 10) had the name "Sarah." I had "Little Girl with Blonde Hair" and something "Pink." Briana had "Baby." So who was right inside Waldenbooks but Mary and her curly blonde-haired little girl Isabella, who was carrying a pink ballon. And what did they want prayer for? Mary's sister Sarah who lives in California and is having a Baby soon!

There were so many more cool things, including an additional person that God had highlighted to us also being chosen by another team.but I'll end with this one.As we were re-gathering in the food court at the appointed end time, Maddie pointed out to Michael Peters that we had not yet found a person on Megan's list.someone in a "Blue Shirt" with a "Boot-type Cast" on their foot. Michael immediately said, "Well there she is right there!" So Michael asked Maddie and Megan to pray for the teenage girl wearing a blue shirt and a boot-cast on her foot!

This is super-easy and very effective, folks. Everyone should try it!


12/6/08 - Olympia, WA

Denise and I went on our first “treasure hunt” today. On the way to Costco Denise said, “let’s pray that God will show us people He wants us to minister to.” I said, "OK". As we drove, God showed me images of 4 people we would meet. I saw a girl about 2 years old with black curly hair, a tall man about 55 years old with a red and gray beard, an elderly woman with white hair leaning all of her weight on a shopping cart and a younger man with black and silver hair combed straight up. We found 3 of my people at Costco. I encouraged the elderly woman by telling her God loves her. I felt God wanted me to say the same thing to the man with the red and gray beard so I spoke some encouraging words to him about how God loved him and wanted to bless him. His wife asked if we could lay hands on him to be healed of his back injury, so we prayed for him to be healed.

While Denise prayed she received a word about a young man wearing orange, who was a musician, and that God wanted to encourage him to continue in his pursuit of music. It took a while for us to find him but we had to stop at Safeway on the way home and as we entered the store we immediately saw him. We waited for him to leave, and Denise approached him in the parking lot. She asked him if he was a musician and he said, "yeah, I'm a drummer." She encouraged him to continue with his music and that God would bless his efforts. He received the message very well. His mother seemed amazed and very glad that a complete stranger would walk up to him and do something like this. We found the man with the black and gray hair a few moments later in the Safeway and I encouraged him by telling him God wanted to bless his life. He told us God was already blessing him. He had just come from an AA meeting and had been clean and sober for a long time and that God was doing great things for him. We saw the little girl as we were driving away form the store. Her mother was carrying her on her hip. We prayed for God’s protection over her as we drove away. We had an awesome time doing a routine thing that normally wouldn’t be very exciting. We want to do this on a regular basis from now on. We are going to write down the descriptions and details we receive in the future and give them to the people we find. We may draw pictures of the people and let them keep it to remind them they are God’s treasure.

From Jim & Shaaron Coleman and Dave & Denise Hayes.
