Volcanic Eruption For Oregon Warning

By Rick Watkins, 2007

Prophetic Word for Bend/Three Sisters

Last year I saw this vision during my prayer time. For a while I wasn’t led to report this and merely recorded it in my daily journal, but the unction to share the warning now is very strong. About 1 month ago Holy Spirit led me to an article by Bobby Conner about a vision he had telling of coming volcanic activity near Bend, Oregon. I found his testimony of nearly 2 years ago archived in my journal. His vision was then quickened to what I saw so that the individual parts aligned and connected in a most inspired and revealing way, as you’ll see. Though I don’t personally know Bobby, I’m grateful for his faithful contribution to this revelation. (Link to Bobby's post: It's Coming Down The Track And Around The Bend)

THE VISION. In the first scene I was standing in a vacated town with empty streets and looking up at the side of a nearby volcanic mountain. In the background I could hear voices as on a news station. I ‘knew’ the town had been warned of a pending eruption and the voices on the news were talking about how some people had chosen “to stay until the last minute” and refused to leave. The news story was about those who stayed behind to “pay wages.” I saw no one on the street in front of me, but I ’knew’ people were still inside the shops, or up on the mountainside. I felt that the town had tourist business activity. I gathered that the volcano was near a populated area and located in the great Northwest somewhere.

In the second scene I was focused on the cone-shaped mountain towering above the town when it began to shake. It shook so violently that I could visibly see the shaking begin at a mid-point halfway up the slope, and then it intensified and the entire mountain began to tremble. I was not shown the very top of the mountain. The slopes of the mountain were covered with evergreen trees. Whether trees exist on the slopes both ‘in the spirit’ and ‘in the world’, I do not know. There was no snow on the lower slopes of the mountain in my view. I caution that the details I was given may represent deeper meanings than what ‘meets the eye’ in the physical world.

Suddenly a massive chunk exploded out of the side of the mountain from about halfway up and shot through the air. It blasted out from the same center section where the shaking first began. The chunk flew through the air over my right shoulder and zipped past me like a meteor. Behind this explosion I saw a bright burst of red-hot lava streak through the air. A huge gaping hole was left, and the whole center section of the volcano continued to shake and rise violently revealing an overflowing flood of rising magma. For a moment I could see directly inside the resulting giant cavity left in the side of the mountain and watched as the magma flowed out above the town. It was evident that if people were still on the slopes it would have been like standing at ground-zero of a bomb blast. There was no indication that the top of the mountain blew.

Quickened revelation. Recently I was led back to Bobby Conner’s post archived in my daily journal. Then Holy Spirit quickened this Word to me; “...I will quicken My personal Word to you through any and all of life, no matter who or what. Keep your eyes on Me and I will quicken and bring to life My Word to you...” I Cor. 13:9- 13, “For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide FAITH, HOPE, CHARITY these three; but the greatest of these is CHARITY.” (My emphasis.) This verse turned out to be a great insight!

At this point let’s take a look at Bobby Conner’s vision: The title of his article is called “It’s Coming Down The Track And Around The BEND.” (My emphasis.) Now I’m going to quote the parts more directly quickened to my part of this revelation. Bobby says, “I was then told that the coming volcanic activity near Bend, Oregon would announce the beginning of one of the greatest healing revivals in history. This healing revival will start around Hamilton, Ontario, and then blaze across Canada to Vancouver. From there it will turn down the Northwest Coast of the U.S. and cross the Pacific to the Far East.”

“I was then told to spell locomotive ’local-motive’. The Lord said that this local area in the Northwest was a seedbed of the healing anointing that was upon John G. Lake. The sign of the volcanic activity around Bend, Oregon, is that the Lord is turning up the heat, but it will bring about a refining and purifying of His people so He can release healing in the earth in an unprecedented way.”

“The voice that was speaking then said to me, “Have you ever seen anything like this?” I looked and saw the very top of a mountain, which was covered with pure white snow. (Remember that I did not see the top of the mountain in my vision, and Bobby is seeing yet another part.) I was carried to the rim so that I could look over into the large open top of the mountain. It was filled with beautiful clear boiling water. I knew that this was the Word of God.”

When this testimony was quickened to me it helped me find the physical location of the volcano and to see deeper meanings. Bobby saw his volcano near Bend, Oregon, and that is why I highlighted references like “Around the Bend.” I also noticed some other phrases used in his testimony that connected with the eruption I saw. Notice the sentences I highlighted in yellow in his article. Phrases like, “clear boiling water,” and “looked like dust and steam,” and “a loud sound,” and “through the dust and ashes,” and “after the heat and pressure that are coming.” These are all phrases applicable to a volcanic eruption. Also notice, “the coming volcanic activity near Bend, Oregon,” and “turning up the heat,” and “clear boiling water,” and “a great cloud of dust and steam,” and “of fire coming,” and “mixed with dust,” and “the dust which is mixed in with the steam at first,” and “a loud sound,” and “a great disturbance,” and more.

Other insights. Next I began to research existing volcanoes in the Bend, Oregon area, based on these leadings. To my surprise, there were more than a few. On the Internet, I felt led to focus my search on the USGS report titled “DESCRIPTION: Three Sisters Volcanoes, Oregon.” I saw the subtitle, “”Faith”, “Hope”, and “Charity.”” Now remember the verse I quoted earlier from I Cor. 13:9- 13. I highlighted the word “CHARITY” in that verse. To my astonishment, as I began to read about these volcanoes I discovered that their original name said to be given in the early 1800s, is FAITH, HOPE, and CHARITY! Now notice what the scripture said above about which one is the greatest. I found it interesting that the volcanoes were each named beginning from the north. Mt. Faith was the northern most, then Mt. Hope, and the southern most was called Mt. Charity! And Mt. Charity is also the tallest and measures 10,358 feet high, over 200 feet greater than the other two! Only South Sister, Mt. Charity has had eruptions in recent history. Now remember that Bobby said “I was carried to the rim so that I could look over into the large open top of the mountain. It was filled with beautiful, clear boiling water.” The South Sister volcano, Mt. Charity, also has a fresh water crater lake inside the cone!

Next I found an article titled “Suspected Volcano Forming In Oregon.” This shows how geologists recently recorded a swarm of 350 small quakes only 3 miles south of the South Sister volcano. They speculate that an underground lake of molten lava is forming and causing a bulge in the ground that was detected by satellite. I quote, “The US Geological Survey (USGS) says that a bulge in the Earth’s crust, covering an area of around 100 square miles, seems to be getting bigger, suggesting that a large quantity of magma is on the move.” (This article was published by Lucy Sherriff of The Register, Oregon, Thursday, Sept. 8th, 2005.)

I also found a USGS article titled “Ground Uplift Near South Sister Volcano.” This report includes a color graphic of a radar interferogram again showing the giant size of the area effected by this magma bulge. The ground uplift was measured by satellite to be about 4 inches over 4 years. This recorded evidence helps me see just how immanently urgent these vision/revelations are. Now we can begin to see that something BIG is happening right now under the ‘greatest of these’ volcanoes, Mt. Charity, the South Sister Volcano, near Bend, Oregon. In the last article above there is a subsection called “Volcanic Background.” I quote the opening line, “Three Sisters is one of three potentially active volcanic centers that lie close to resort areas in Central Oregon.” And that is what was also quickened to me. Please post any further insight, interpretation, or confirmation you may receive as the Lord leads you.

An Urgent Call for Massive Intercession

Dear Believers in Christ,

A few days ago as I watched a news business channel, I received the following word from the Lord. As you can tell, it's a serious warning. I know the nation is in a delicate condition now, but I believe that I need to send this word out. I ran it by Chuck Pierce and he said that it fits with what he has been hearing, only more specific on the economic side.

This is a wake up and it's so strong.

A Serious Warning and a Call for Urgent Prayer

A warning received from the Lord on July 17, 2010 in Dallas, Texas:

A few days ago as I watched the financial news, the Lord clearly spoke these words to me, "The nation is teetering!" I then had a vision of the economy of the United States, on what looked like a "scale of justice." He then went on to show me that we must fast, pray and cry out to the Lord for mercy and solutions that will balance righteousness and justice.

In praying to the Lord for wisdom about this word, I realized what must be done—it is time for the Church in America to stand up and take her place once again in the nation. I mulled over the fact that we have already lost so many of our liberties and this is what I heard, "If the Church doesn't fast and pray for a faster acceleration of revival and awakening, the iniquitous sin structures in the nation will tip the scale that is teetering and there will be another great depression."

Of course, this word shook me to the core of my being. Many of you may be aware that the Holy Spirit spoke to me almost a year before the September 2008 economic melt down, that there would be "no more business as usual."

The balance of the economy is fragile and depending on the way we fast, pray, and how we cast our votes in the next election will depend on which way the scale tips. We must pray and do. We must pray and act. We must awaken the Church to the state of the nation without fear of pleasing man or fear for our reputation.

God is watching to see which way the die will be cast. If we shift the nation to Biblical values in the arenas of righteousness and justice, the economy will follow. If we continue in our stance of support for Israel, the Stock Market will stabilize and prosper, and that which is fragile will become strong. Supernatural solutions will be sent from Heaven that our natural minds could never reason, nor grasp and they will heal the land.

If we do not heed in this hour there will be a tumbling of our economy and dark days will be ahead to such a degree that our nation will possibly never fully recover from and have the greatness as a nation that God has favored us with for generations.

God have mercy. God send an awakening. God send salvation.

A Father's Blessing in the Northwest

from March 2006

Throughout the body of Christ there have been indications and spiritual signs of something significant on the horizon. Much has been spoken and written concerning spiritual preparation for an outpouring of power and Glory to demonstrate the revelation of the Lord Jesus and His Kingdom. In fact, someone shared with us that the last seven years have produced more books on the topic of intimacy with the Lord and possessing spiritual character than in all prior years combined. It seems we have now broached a crossroads in church history and will begin to experience some expressions of Kingdom power and Truth, through vessels prepared for this hour.

Many geographical areas have been identified as "targets" for spiritual restoration. The principal of “unstopping old wells” as demonstrated in typical form by Isaac as he rediscovered the wells of Abraham, has become common language in our quest to bring a restoration to expressions of revival that once visited our nation. During the late '40s and early ‘50s, an awakening swept across America with unprecedented demonstrations of the Lord's healing and deliverance virtue. Although there had been great miracles throughout prior years, none had touched the corporate body in as far reaching a manner as the one during the mid 20th century.

Unfortunately that deposit of revelation and power was lost and the Church of America experienced a spiritual disciplining from 1956 to 1996. As with Israel during their legacy in the wilderness, there were expressions of the Lord's love and blessings that touched many during those years. Nonetheless, the "promise" of corporate revival and outpouring had passed to the next generation.

The lot has now fallen upon us in this day to position ourselves to “cross the Jordan” into a new day of promise and restoration. We believe a token of that mandate was given this past week during a conference in Coeur d'Alene Idaho co-hosted by Grace Training and WhiteDove Ministries. The speakers were Shawn Bolz, Bob Jones, Bobby Connor and myself. Noel Alexander was also present for the pre-conference leadership meeting and part of the conference.

Naturally, we are not implying that the events of this past week in our conference are the only things the Lord has been doing in the Pacific Northwest. No doubt, there are many aspects of divine restoration taking place through ministries being groomed and prepared for notable days of destiny. However, the purpose of this brief article is to simply communicate the undeniable testimony of spiritual recovery and impartation that took place during these days, highlighted with revelation and healing. It is our hope that the sharing of this report will ignite faith in the hearts of people to lay hold of His provision and proceed through the open door presently before us.

The Key of David

The conference was called "Revelation Glory" and followed a leadership summit attended by over 100 leaders in the Pacific Northwest. The theme of the summit was taken from Isaiah 22:22 and the unveiling of governmental authority symbolized by the "Key of David." Several weeks prior to these appointed days, a vision was given related to the blueprint of Heaven and the Lord's strategy for touching this land of great beauty. In fact, it is the Lord’s desire to cause spiritual beauty to transcend the natural beauty in this land of destiny.

The Vision Revisited

The vision began with the revelation of a spiritual hourglass as the sands elapsed from the hourglass denoting that "time had run out." It was clearly communicated that the time has now come for divine purposes to be established in "the land of beauty." This expression concerning the land came from the Lord to signify His desire to establish “spiritual beauty” in the Northwest--- clearly a place of natural beauty. The Scripture that accompanied this revelation was Zechariah 11:7.

So I fed the flock for slaughter, in particular the poor of the flock. I took for myself two staffs: the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock. (Zech 11:7)

They are the divine staff's of “beauty” and “bands/unity.” Bob saw in the vision, a tangible release of glory and beauty that is represented by the beauty of the land itself.

This is pointing to a release of favor and covenant or relationship among the people, through the divine grace that is coming. It is the land of immense splendor and attraction. The Lord is announcing His desire for the Heavens to be open in the land of great beauty. The hourglass has run out of sand. This will be a new beginning.

Nature itself will declare the handiwork of God. It is the emergence of His righteous “staffs” to heal and restore hurt and wounded sheep. The windows of Heaven were opened in the vision and revealed, through nature, the beauty of Heaven in the Pacific Northwest. This vision provided the foundation for both the Leadership Summit and the Revelation Glory Conference that followed.

Charity and Fraternal Affection

Throughout the Leadership Summit key revelations were given to help God’s leaders walk in a governmental mandate and appropriately steward the Kingdom power and authority soon to be delegated. Noel Alexander shared powerful "keys" related to intercession and benevolent giving that will characterize the faithful leadership of last days ministry. It is in sharing the Lord's heart for the lost and oppressed that we will truly discover genuine authority in the Heavenly places. He went on to share a revelation given to him to help identify true governmental leadership and ministry...miracles, signs and wonders. God’s genuine governmental leaders will be marked and distinguished with manifestations from the power realm of Heaven.

We also conveyed, with the Lord's help and affirmation, the qualifying nature of brotherly love and fraternal affection to be shared by God’s administration in the coming days. This essential attribute will touch Heaven with such dynamic persuasion that it will open the warehouse of God's Glory and generate creative miracles. Never has there been a time of greater need for this reality. The Holy Spirit is providing the keys... now we must walk it out with His help.

There was some initial spiritual resistance to the leadership summit on the opening evening. However, the willingness of the participants to join together as one voice of opposition and warfare, overcame the cloud of oppression and paved the way for fruitful meetings that followed.

A New Day for the Healing Rooms Ministry

There was one day between the Leadership Summit and the beginning of the Revelation Glory conference. It was my privilege along with Bob Jones, to minister in Spokane Washington to Cal Pierce and the Healing Rooms ministry team. Rarely have we seen such a hungry and focused group of ministers. Many in attendance were poised for promotion and increase into a new level of authority.

The Lord seemed to be revealing His desire to escalate the return of the vital healing ministry and consolidate greater dimension of revelation to help elevate the faith of the people to lay hold of the Lord’s healing redemption.

Highlights of Revelation Glory

There were many things that transpired during the Revelation Glory conference. However, we will attempt to touch on the highlights of the most important aspects of those three days. We would encourage those interested to purchase the tape series. This is not for the purpose of selling tapes but to resource people and impart a strategy to touch Heaven and begin to demonstrate the "tasting of the good word of God and the power of the age to come.

The Holy Spirit helped the people throughout the conference obtain a vision for the eternal realm and transcend the cares and anxiety of the natural realm. This came from both the words that were spoken and the incredible atmosphere provided in worship. As we level our focus on Him and our inheritance in Him and His in us, it actually links Heaven with earth and provides an environment for true impartation. The messages brought in the early sessions of the conference began to elevate faith in the hearts of the people and opened the door to a higher realm in Him.

Bobby Conner shared a moving message on simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ and the unveiling of His Kingdom through consecrated vessels. This theme remained paramount throughout the conference and further related to the demonstration of the Lord’s Justice soon to be displayed. I was able to shared in an abbreviated fashion the essence of the “Sevenfold Glory of Jesus the Just Judge.” The heavens and the earth and all that is in it, should rejoice and embrace the revelation of the Lord in His justice.

The Bible admonishes us in Psalms 96 to “let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let the sea roar, and all the things which fill it; Let the field be exultant, and all that is in it! Then shall all the trees of the wood sing for joy before the Lord, for He comes, for He comes to judge and govern the earth! He shall judge the world with righteousness and justice and the peoples with His faithfulness and truth.“

Shawn Bolz further advanced this important foundation with presentations of Truth related to the understanding of the Lord’s inheritance in His people. The apprehension of this reality provides insight and illumination into the heart of the Father for His Son and union with His Bride. There is a higher place in God to which we must ascend. It is the “open door” of Revelations 4:1 and access to divinely granted appearances of the Lord and revelatory insight into the Kingdom realm.

Each of these spiritual tools fashioned an environment of faith to capture a vision of the “beauty” elements of Heaven and elevate faith. There was a perpetuation of both Word and Spirit setting the stage for the fathers blessing and the inauguration of a new day in the Spirit.

A Divine Appointment

To more fully appreciate the most important aspect of the conference, a foundation must be laid concerning a vision given to Bob Jones and it’s fulfillment in 1996. During the latter part of 1995, Bob shared with me a vision that he had received concerning a forty-year season of corporate discipline that was coming to an end. In it he was actually given the date January 16. Having studied many key leaders utilized in the healing movement of the '40s and '50s, I recognized that day as one in which a prophet was directed to Chicago IL and commissioned by the Lord to announce that "America had turned down her opportunity."

Clearly, Bob had no natural knowledge of that prophetic event that transpired on January 16, 1956. Therefore, we felt that it was important to meet on January 16 1996 in a prophetic roundtable meeting in Moravian Falls, North Carolina. There were several leaders in attendance for the purpose of seeking the Lord for His revelation and strategy for the coming season.

A Divine Appointment

A few days prior to our meeting on January 16, another vision was given in which he saw three men receiving an impartation from the Lord related to spiritual revelation and provision. He only recognized the third man in the line but knew that he would encounter the first two on or around the date of the 16th.

As our meeting began on January 16, 1996, there was much anticipation concerning the significance of this date as a forty-year anniversary of spiritual judgment being pronounced on our nation. Throughout the meeting, Bob was continually reminding us that the man he saw in the subsequent vision must be present although he did not know who the man was nor was there anyone else invited to this private meeting.

Throughout the morning and into the afternoon we waited to determine how we should proceed. Finally, we decided to simply share with the group in attendance, the visions that had been given concerning 1956 and 1996. While we were in this process, the door opened and the man walked in whom Bob had seen in his vision. This man was Ray Kirschke, from Spokane WA. As we invited his party to participate with us we once again began to share the visions. As I was approaching the part of the vision related to the prophet who pronounced discipline on our nation in Chicago IL on January 16, 1956, Brother Kirschke spoke up and remarked that he was actually in that meeting.

What an incredible affirmation. This brother was actually in Chicago IL on January 16, 1956 in the service in which this pronouncement was made. Now, 40 years later to the day, he finds himself in a log cabin in the mountains of North Carolina in a meeting to which he was not invited, (although he was invited by the Holy Spirit) while that specific event was discussed. Only God could have orchestrated such an endeavor. I did a little research and discovered that it is believed that only about 500 people were in attendance in 1956. We then have to wonder how many people are even living 40 years later.

I actually questioned this dear brother about the meeting in 1956 and he confirmed that it was the only time he had heard this particular minister speak and he can remember the meeting vividly. He acknowledged that a clear and tangible difference could be discerned in the level of power attainable after the meeting on January 16, 1956. No longer were they experiencing the great grace for healing and deliverance as before. He said he has waited 40 years to see it return. Brother Kirschke also affirmed that he was the last disciple of John G. Lake. Brother Lake took Ray Kirschke under his wing and mentored him for the last 1 1/2 years of his life.

When I asked Brother Kirschke how he made his way to the mountains of North Carolina on this unique day, he confirmed that he and another man had been on a two-week "missionary journey." They had traveled from Florida up the East Coast to the northeastern portion of the nation and were now on their return trip to Florida and simply decided, as an afterthought, to drive through Moravian Falls to see who was there. Little did he know that he was “front and center” in the destiny of God.

Transference of Ownership

That foundation is important to understand the significance of what transpired in the Revelation Glory conference. While in prayer on the afternoon of the first day, the Holy Spirit showed me a spiritual picture concerning the conference. It was as if he was giving us a "spiritual check" to be drawn on the resources of Heaven. This was a symbolic revelation denoting a promise from the Lord for the conference.

When such a promise is made, we are allowed to “fill out” the check with our hopes and purposes. However, I had been wisely taught that our best decision in encounters like this is to allow the Lord Himself to complete the "check." We simply do not possess the wisdom and understanding to appropriate a spiritual endowment of this nature.

Therefore, at the evening service we announced that we were yielding our full hopes, purposes and agendas in the conference to the Lord and were publicly "transferring ownership" of the meeting entirely into His hands. It was a public acknowledgment of total surrender to the moment by moment leading of the Holy Spirit in the administration of the meetings.

A second part of that experience involved Ray Hughes. The Lord had so orchestrated it that Ray had received a new guitar that had many prophetic implications. The new guitar also represented a new day and a new sound. In the revelations that came that afternoon, the Lord instructed me to have our team pray over Ray and release a fresh wind of blessing into his life. A new mantle of revelation and authority is being deposited into Ray to help give articulation to God’s thoughts and ways. It will be the consolidation of “spiritual thoughts” with “spiritual words.”

A Fathers Blessing

On the second morning of the conference, Bob was given a vision of Ray Kirschke and watched as this brother signed two "quitclaim deeds" in the experience. Very often, prophetic people are given insight in allegorical form to highlight a spiritual reality. Prophetic symbolism is used to communicate a divine reality or strategy. This was one such occasion.

A quitclaim deed is a legal document that conveys the full rights of ownership from one party to another. This was to illustrate the transference of ownership from one generation to the next, of the deposit of spiritual power and authority demonstrated in the prior generation.

Naturally, we began a search for this brother to determine if he could attend the evening service. Incredibly, someone present knew how to reach him and he agreed to attend the meeting. What transpired that evening was one of the most powerful and touching things we have ever participated in.

This precious man of God, now 84 years of age, shared his heart for the Gospel of revelation and power. He announced that the mantle that rested upon John G. Lake was plainly the anointing and ministry of the Lord Jesus entrusted to man. It is not our hope to receive the mantle and ministry of a man, but the Lord Himself. With that said, he prayed a blessing upon this generation and released all that was deposited and resident in him from the prior generation and transferred the promise into this new day.

It is much like Joshua and Caleb who carried within their spiritual womb the promise given to the prior generation. Although the covenant blessing was given to an earlier generation, it was never fully engaged because of unbelief. The Lord, in His great grace, allows the next generation to learn from the mistakes of the prior so that the inheritance can be obtained. Joshua and Caleb functioned as the fathers of the prior generation to carry the promise and impart it upon the next.

Healing Affirmations

The evening of the impartation with Ray Kirschke and the final day of the conference, were visited with wonderful tokens of God’s healing power. Many testimonies have been submitted to attest of the Lord’s grace for healing and deliverance. This is just a token of the virtue to be entrusted to the Church needed to reveal the Kingdom of Heaven and the redemption of the Lord Jesus. There are many such places the Holy Spirit has targeted for Spiritual restoration and demonstrations of His power.

Perhaps even more encouraging have been the reports of changed lives and the aspiration birthed in the hearts of the people to fully invest themselves into the depths of God and experientially comprehend the Revelation of Jesus Christ for themselves. A strong Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation was present and shared by many to ascertain greater dimensions of insight with understanding of the rich and unfathomable things of God. These can only be shared through the divine counsel of God, as they are beyond the scrutiny of the natural mind.

During one of the sessions, the Lord spoke to me and communicated that this meeting in Coeur d’Alene was the second in a trilogy of encounters. The first was in Albany, OR and the next is to be Shreveport LA, in April.

A Vision of the Body of Christ and the End-Time Ministries, Tommy Hicks

The following is a stunning vision given to American preacher Tommy Hicks (who was a major figure in the powerful 1954 Argentina Revival).

My message begins July 25, about 2:30 in the morning at Winnipeg, Canada. I had hardly fallen asleep when the vision and the revelation that God gave me came before me. The vision came three times, exactly in detail, the morning of July 25, 1961. I was so stirred and so moved by the revelation that this has changed my complete outlook upon the body of Christ, and upon the end-time ministries.

The greatest thing that the church of Jesus Christ has ever been given lies straight ahead. It is so hard to help men and women to realize and understand the thing that God is trying to give his people in the end times.

I received a letter several weeks ago from one of our native evangelists down in Africa, down in Nairobi. This man and his wife were on their way to Tanganyika. They could neither read nor could they write, but we had been supporting them for over two years. As they entered into the territory of Tanganyika, they came across a small village. The entire village was evacuating because of a plague that had hit the village. He came across natives that were weeping, and he asked them what was wrong.

They told him of their mother and father who had suddenly died, and they had been dead for three days. They had to leave. They were afraid to go in; they were leaving them in the cottage. He turned and asked them where they were. They pointed to the hut and he asked them to go with him, but they refused. They were afraid to go.

The native and his wife went to this little cottage and entered in where the man and woman had been dead for three days. He simply stretched forth his hand in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and spoke the man's name and the woman's name and said, "In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to come back to your bodies." Instantaneously these two heathen people who had never known Jesus Christ as their Savior sat up and immediately began to praise God. The spirit and the power of God came into the life of those people.

To us that may seem strange and a phenomenon, but that is the beginning of these end-time ministries. God is going to take the do-nothings, the nobodies, the unheard-of, the no-accounts. He is going to take every man and every woman and he is going to give to them this outpouring of the Spirit of God.

In the book of Acts we read that "In the last days," God said, "I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh." I wonder if we realized what he meant when God said, "I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh." I do not think I fully realized nor could I understand the fullness of it, and then I read from the book of Joel: "Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain -" (Joel 2:23). It is not only going to be the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, but he is going to give to his people in these last days a double portion of the power of God!

As the vision appeared to me after I was asleep, I suddenly found myself in a great high distance. Where I was, I do not know. But I was looking down upon the earth. Suddenly the whole earth came into my view. Every nation, every kindred, every tongue came before my sight from the east and the west, the north and the south. I recognized every country and many cities that I had been in, and I was almost in fear and trembling as I beheld the great sight before me: and at that moment when the world came into view, it began to lightning and thunder.

As the lightning flashed over the face of the earth, my eyes went downward and I was facing the north. Suddenly I beheld what looked like a great giant, and as I stared and looked at it, I was almost bewildered by the sight. It was so gigantic and so great. His feet seemed to reach to the north pole and his head to the south. Its arms were stretched from sea to sea. I could not even begin to understand whether this be a mountain or this be a giant, but as I watched, I suddenly beheld a great giant. I could see his head was struggling for life. He wanted to live, but his body was covered with debris from head to foot, and at times this great giant would move his body and act as though it would even raise up at times. And when it did, thousands of little creatures seemed to run away. Hideous creatures would run away from this giant, and when he would become calm, they would come back.

All of a sudden this great giant lifted his hand towards heaven, and then it lifted its other hand, and when it did these creatures by the thousands seemed to flee away from this giant and go into the darkness of the night.

Slowly this great giant began to rise and as he did, his head and hands went into the clouds. As he rose to his feet he seemed to have cleansed himself from the debris and filth that was upon him, and he began to raise his hands into the heavens as though praising the Lord, and as he raised his hands, they went even unto the clouds.

Suddenly, every cloud became silver, the most beautiful silver I have ever known. As I watched this phenomenon it was so great I could not even begin to understand what it all meant. I was so stirred as I watched it, and I cried unto the Lord and I said, "Oh Lord, what is the meaning of this." and I felt as if I was actually in the Spirit and I could feel the presence of the Lord even as I was asleep.

And from those clouds suddenly there came great drops of liquid light raining down upon this mighty giant, and slowly, slowly, this giant began to melt, began to sink itself in the very earth itself, and as he melted, his whole form seemed to have melted upon the face of the earth, and this great rain began to come down. Liquid drops of light began to flood the very earth itself and as I watched this giant that seemed to melt, suddenly it became millions of people over the face of the earth. As I beheld the sight before me, people stood up all over the world! They were lifting their hands and they were praising the Lord.

At that very moment there came a great thunder that seemed to roar from the heavens. I turned my eyes toward the heavens and suddenly I saw a figure in white, in glistening white - the most glorious thing that I have ever seen in my entire life. I did not see the face, but somehow I knew it was the Lord Jesus Christ, and he stretched forth his hand, and as he did, he would stretch it forth to one, and to another, and to another. And as he stretched forth his hand upon the nations and the people of the world - men and women - as he pointed toward them, this liquid light seemed to flow from his hands into them, and a mighty anointing of God came upon them, and those people began to go forth in the name of the Lord.

I do not know how long I watched it. It seemed it went into days and weeks and months. And I beheld this Christ as he continued to stretch forth his hand; but there was a tragedy. There were many people as he stretched forth his hand that refused the anointing of God and the call of God. I saw men and women that I knew. People that I felt would certainly receive the call of God. But as he stretched forth his hand toward this one and toward that one, they simply bowed their head and began to back away. And each of those that seemed to bow down and back away, seemed to go into darkness. Blackness seemed to swallow them everywhere.

I was bewildered as I watched it, but these people that he had anointed, hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, in Africa, England, Russia, China, America, all over the world, the anointing of God was upon these people as they went forward in the name of the Lord. I saw these men and women as they went forth. They were ditch diggers, they were washerwomen, they were rich men, they were poor men. I saw people who were bound with paralysis and sickness and blindness and deafness. As the Lord stretched forth to give them this anointing, they became well, they became healed, and they went forth!

And this is the miracle of it - this is the glorious miracle of it - those people would stretch forth their hands exactly as the Lord did, and it seemed as if there was this same liquid fire in their hands. As they stretched forth their hands they said, "According to my word, be thou made whole."

As these people continued in this mighty end-time ministry, I did not fully realize what it was, and I looked to the Lord and said, "What is the meaning of this?" And he said, "This is that which I will do in the last days. I will restore all that the cankerworm, the palmerworm, the caterpillar - I will restore all that they have destroyed. This, my people, in the end times will go forth. As a mighty army shall they sweep over the face of the earth."

As I was at this great height, I could behold the whole world. I watched these people as they were going to and fro over the face of the earth. Suddenly there was a man in Africa and in a moment he was transported by the Spirit of God, and perhaps he was in Russia, or China or America or some other place, and vice versa. All over the world these people went, and they came through fire, and through pestilence, and through famine. Neither fire nor persecution, nothing seemed to stop them.

Angry mobs came to them with swords and with guns. And like Jesus, they passed through the multitudes and they could not find them, but they went forth in the name of the Lord, and everywhere they stretched forth their hands, the sick were healed, the blind eyes were opened. There was not a long prayer, and after I had reviewed the vision many times in my mind, and I thought about it many times, I realized that I never saw a church, and I never saw or heard a denomination, but these people were going in the name of the Lord of Hosts. Hallelujah!

As they marched forth in everything they did as the ministry of Christ in the end times, these people were ministering to the multitudes over the face of the earth. Tens of thousands, even millions seemed to come to the Lord Jesus Christ as these people stood forth and gave the message of the kingdom, of the coming kingdom, in this last hour. It was so glorious, but it seems as though there were those that rebelled, and they would become angry and they tried to attack those workers that were giving the message.

God is going to give the world a demonstration in this last hour as the world has never known. These men and women are of all walks of life, degrees will mean nothing. I saw these workers as they were going over the face of the earth. When one would stumble and fall, another would come and pick him up. There were no "big I" and "little you," but every mountain was brought low and every valley was exalted, and they seemed to have one thing in common - there was a divine love, a divine love that seemed to flow forth from these people as they worked together, and as they lived together. It was the most glorious sight that I have ever known. Jesus Christ was the theme of their life. They continued and it seemed the days went by as I stood and beheld this sight. I could only cry, and sometimes I laughed. It was so wonderful as these people went throughout the face of the whole earth, bringing forth in this last end time.

As I watched from the very heaven itself, there were times when great deluges of this liquid light seemed to fall upon great congregations, and that congregation would lift up their hands and seemingly praise God for hours and even days as the Spirit of God came upon them. God said, "I will pour my Spirit upon all flesh," and that is exactly this thing. And to every man and every woman that received this power, and the anointing of God, the miracles of God, there was no ending to it.

We have talked about miracles. We have talked about signs and wonders, but I could not help but weep as I read again this morning, at 4 o'clock this morning the letter from our native workers. This is only the evidence of the beginning for one man, a "do-nothing, an unheard-of," who would go and stretch forth his hand and say, "In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to flow into your body." I dropped to my knees and began to pray again, and I said, "Lord, I know that this time is coming soon!"

And then again, as these people were going about the face of the earth, a great persecution seemed to come from every angle.

Suddenly there was another great clap of thunder, that seemed to resound around the world, and I heard again the voice, the voice that seemed to speak, "Now this is my people. This is my beloved bride." And when the voice spoke, I looked upon the earth and I could see the lakes and the mountains. The graves were opened and people from all over the world, the saints of all ages, seemed to be rising. And as they rose from the grave, suddenly all these people came from every direction. From the east and the west, from the north and the south, and they seemed to be forming again this gigantic body. As the dead in Christ seemed to be rising first, I could hardly comprehend it. It was so marvelous. It was so far beyond anything I could ever dream or think of.

But as this body suddenly began to form, and take shape again, it took shape again in the form of this mighty giant, but this time it was different. It was arrayed in the most beautiful gorgeous white. Its garments were without spot or wrinkle as its body began to form, and the people of all ages seemed to be gathered into this body, and slowly, slowly, as it began to form up into the very heavens, suddenly from the heavens above, the Lord Jesus came, and became the head, and I heard another clap of thunder that said, "This is my beloved bride for whom I have waited. She will come forth even tried by fire. This is she that I have loved from the beginning of time."

As I watched, my eyes suddenly turned to the far north, and I saw seemingly destruction: men and women in anguish and crying out, and buildings in destruction. Then I heard again, the fourth voice that said, "Now is My wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth." From the ends of the whole world, the wrath of God seemed to be poured out and it seemed that there were great vials of God's wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth. I can remember it as though it happened a moment ago. I shook and trembled as I beheld the awful sight of seeing the cities, and whole nations going down into destruction.

I could hear the weeping and wailing. I could hear people crying. They seemed to cry as they went into caves, but the caves in the mountains opened up.

They leaped into water, but the water would not drown them. There was nothing that could destroy them. They were wanting to take their lives, but they could not. Then again I turned my eyes to this glorious sight, this body arrayed in beautiful white, shining garments. Slowly, slowly, it began to lift from the earth, and as it did, I awoke. What a sight I had beheld! I had seen the end-time ministries - the last hour. Again on July 27, at 2:30 in the morning, the same revelation, the same vision came again exactly as it did before.

My life has been changed as I realized that we are living in that end time, for all over the world God is anointing men and women with this ministry. It will not be doctrine. It will not be a churchianity. It is going to be Jesus Christ. They will give forth the word of the Lord, and are going to say, "I heard it so many times in the vision and according to my word it shall be done."

The Commander of the Lord's Army

The Commander of the Lord's army came to inspect the troops. He looked at many things, then left. A staff meeting was held where we discussed the main deficiency: our conversations. We were giving the enemy a big advantage in the careless things we say. An order went out to the troops to reign in thoughtless or critical conversation.

It was as if our words were giving the enemy information they didn't have, which was then used against us. Almost as if the enemy didn't know our weaknesses, until someone among our ranks revealed it.

Just as when Joshua was about to lead the Israelite army into battle, the Commander paid a visit and gave instructions before the battle could begin. We had a similar visit.

From this visit I would assume:

1) We are not in the battle yet.
2) The Lord's eyes are on us and He is aware of what we're doing and saying.
3) We have need of come correction before the battle begins.
4) The battle is real and it's approaching soon.
5) The Lord would not be personally involved in a battle that would end in defeat.
6) We can be assured that victory will be the result, if we follow the orders of the Commander.

Jewels in the Midst of the Storm

There are treasures of light in the midst of the darkest storm.

One week ago [from the original post in 2008] I was given a simple yet very vivid dream that captured my attention. The dream appeared to take place in the beautiful Northwest part of the United States and in the background I saw what appeared to be Mount Hood*. I am unclear of the significance of this particular volcanic mount but it was what the Holy Spirit chose as the backdrop for this particular dream.

*(Mount Hood is a stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc of northern Oregon, in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located about 50 miles (80 km) east-southeast of the city of Portland, on the border between Clackamas and Hood River counties. Mount Hood's snow-covered peak rises 11,249 feet (3,429 m ) and is home to twelve glaciers. It is the highest mountain in Oregon and the fourth-highest in the Cascade Range. Mount Hood is considered the Oregon volcano most likely to erupt, though based on its history, an explosive eruption is unlikely.)

Fire and Rain

I was riding a bicycle in this dream as fast as I could to get away from the activity of an approaching eruption of Mount Hood. All of a sudden, in the dream, I saw Mount Hood erupt. Plumes of smoke filled the sky like a giant fireworks display on the 4th of July. I kept peddling as fast as I could knowing there was still time to avoid the volcanic results that appeared imminent. Others were on their bicycles was well and were racing to get out of the way of the looming disaster. Chaos seemed to be the prevailing ruling atmosphere as fear was griping many hearts.

All of a sudden I slowed down and realized it was beginning to rain. I stopped and pulled over to the side of the road while others just raced right passed me. They seemed driven by fear but in this dream I knew something else was about to occur. As others were racing to escape the storm, I looked up I saw a great explosion as Mount Hood erupted with smoke and fire high into the air. It was beginning to rain. Fire and Rain. Fire and Rain. Yes, Fire and Rain came down at the same time.

But as I knelt by the roadside, I saw that jewels were being scattered all over the ground. As I got out of the panic mode, and I paused along side the road, to my surprise, I found that as the Fire and Rain hit the earth, it turned into precious jewels. I was now fully engaged in picking up the jewels that were falling in the midst of the storm. Entire diamond and emerald rings, onyx necklaces and precious jewelry were being scattered all over the ground. But I had to pause, get out of the panic mode, and get off the path, to even know that the fire and the rain turned into precious jewels.

A Word in the Dream

I was elated in this dream as I collected handfuls of costly gems. I loaded up my backpack with scores of rings, bracelets, necklaces and pendants of every kind. Others were totally unaware that jewels had fallen. They were caught up in the fear driven moment of escaping the dire circumstances. As I woke up out of this stunning dream, the voice of the Holy Spirit spoke to me, “I will give jewels to my bride in the midst of the storm.”

Yes, He will give jewels to His bride in the midst of the storm. I needed that dream and you might also. As odd as it might seem to you, I actually feel led by the Holy Spirit not to interpret all the symbols for you in this dream. I believe this dream will speak to you right where you are – right where you live. I know how it is speaking to me. But this is not just a dream to help me navigate in a perilous hour – this dream is filled with clues and hints, if you search for them, on how you too can find jewels in the midst of the storm. Yes, He will give us treasures in the midst of darkness.

May the Holy Spirit guide each of us into His ways and the fullness of His purposes in this very hour. Blessings to you in this season and may He adorn you with His jewels even in the midst of a storm. In Jesus Great Name! Amen and Amen!
