BOLDNESS

If I listed everything the church was allowed to say ten years ago that she can’t say today, you would be horrified.  Without a miracle, your children and grandchildren will have to survive in a world that will totally ban their faith—and what is even scarier: they will have to face it without you.

It is hard to convince many Christians that they are rapidly losing their First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion.  They either don’t believe it is happening, or they chalk it up to  ‘fake news’ or ‘politics.’  But the erosion of liberty is not only real—it is the greatest threat American Christians have ever faced.

The doctrines of our faith that offend are: the Cross, the Blood of Jesus, the reality of Hell, sexual purity, and marriage.  Preachers who feel the heat from government censorship are already deleting these doctrines from their sermons.  They’ll tell you it’s to reach a bigger audience—but, trust me, it’s the heat.

What can we do to stop the church from being driven underground?   No one who is truly a man or woman of God can seriously entertain the idea that we should stop preaching these truths.  That is not even an option.  What then can we do to reverse this pernicious loss of liberty?

An even better question is: What does God do when a nation tries to silence His church?  The answer came to me suddenly.   Hear me out, it is not what you think.  It is way beyond petitions, or elections.  The revelation I am about to relate to you, struck me with paralyzing clarity. I am amazed I never saw it before.

However, nothing I am about to say will help you, not one point I am making will have its intended impact, unless you have a heart for it.  If you are still in denial about what is happening, I can’t help you—this message can’t help you.  If you think I am dispensing alarmist extremism, then you are just another part of the threat.

But, if you want to hear God’s heart on this crisis—if you hunger for more than half-answers, then you have come to the right place.  You can ask the Holy Spirit the most important question you could ever ask: “What do You do when a nation tries to silence Your church?”

Here it comes:

When the leaders of Jerusalem arrested Peter, they didn’t know what to charge him with or how to punish him.  They knew they had to silence the church.  There was no doubt about their intention.  They were prepared to do anything to stop the Gospel—so what was stopping them?  Answer that, and you will know what the exact marching orders are, that the church needs today.

What was hindering the council members was the glaring presence of the man who came with Peter and John.  This was the crippled beggar who used to sit at the Gate Beautiful.  A spectacular miracle had occurred!  He had occupied the most visible and lucrative begging station in Jerusalem.  Everyone knew him.  Word of his miraculous healing filled Jerusalem, and a mad chorus of praise was rising over the Eternal City.

Their deep consternation is vividly described in these verses: Acts 4:14 “And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But when they had commanded (Peter and John) to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 saying, “What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a notable miracle has been done through them is evident to all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it.””

Their profound dilemma was not lost on Peter.  The Holy Spirit had revealed to him the divine solution to government censorship.  Peter had clearly settled on a course of action—the very action we need to take today. It is the action we take in our tent. He left with a battle plan. He was armed with critical information.

He gathered the people of God, and ordered them to pray.  He was about to pray a prayer that is the precise model for our crisis. He faced the same threat we face.  Remember that word: “threat.”

You will recall I told you that nothing good can come to you from my message, unless you see how urgent the hour has become?  Peter began his prayer by calling the situation ‘a threat.’  We must do this, also.

In Acts chapter 4, Peter prayed: 29 “Now, Lord, look upon their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your Holy Servant Jesus.”

Peter is showing us that boldness is essential.  Only boldness will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Not only this, he is forever settling the question of preaching.  Preaching must not leave anything out.  It is by sharing the whole counsel of God, that the church is protected, and able to continue her work.

Next, Peter is admitting that the vehicle for that boldness is signs and wonders.  God must stretch His hand over an angry culture, perform supernatural healings, and overrule the agenda of man.  Such is the case today.  Look at how God answered:

Acts 4:31 “And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.”

Not only were they filled with the Holy Spirit and boldness, but God answered their prayer for miracles.  In the next chapter, the very shadow of Peter was healing the masses. (Acts 5:15-16)

Ignore those who aren’t willing.  Set the time and place to go to homes, houses of worship, schools, offices—anywhere where true prayer can be raised up to God.  Prove this promise and see: the Spirit will fall; you will receive a tongue of fire, and miracles will come.  I am not talking about self-absorbed emotional light touches.  I am talking about undeniable, medically verified, city-shaking divine healings.

And you will see that now, as in that day, no law, no argument, and no politician will be able to silence the church!


COME AND BRING THOSE WHO NEED A MIRACLE TO THIS OPEN DECLARATION AND DEMONSTRATION OF THE POWER OF CHRIST IN FRESNO


 

 

 

DIVINE FRUSTRATION

In times of acute spiritual warfare, God often allows those He has chosen for a special work to feel a kind of frustration. Maybe you can see that something radical needs to happen. Maybe you see things others don’t.  You survey the church scene and see that what Satan has sold so many believers is merely fool’s gold.  You’re convinced that this feeble generation is not taking up weapons that are ‘mighty to the tearing down of strongholds.’ Instead, they pursue money, cheap grace, and safe spaces.

You can see how teaching that is shallow and flattering is the perfect greenhouse for dulling reality. It kills urgency.  Taking a stand has become a distant fantasy to many.  But, what about you?

You see how the faith of so many has grown flabby.  You can’t bear to see how many Christians don’t even know what ‘the weapons of our warfare’ are.  They don’t know our authority.  They have no marching orders.  They don’t know what to say to this generation.  Most of all, you feel a deep urgency, but you are shocked that the people of God are oblivious as to what is coming next in the plan of God.  They are clueless about the threats to our nation and our freedom.

Peter recognized when government crossed the line.  Acts 4:19 “But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to Him? You be the judges! 20 As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.””

Peter also understood what to do when government tries to ban the Gospel, (the high priest replied,) 28 “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this Name? And behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!” 29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”” (Acts 5: 28-29)

Those who hate America are coming after our freedom.  They will force feed our children the Antichrist agenda. That is, unless we wake up to our purpose and our destiny.  

Although I am calling you out for special power in this hour, we must be alert, not alarmed.  Don’t let the threatening clouds grip you with fear. Let them light a fire in your soul!

You see and feel all of this for a reason: God is frustrating you divinely.  It is one of His greatest gifts. Why? Because it delivers you from the mediocre by implanting in you an insatiable restlessnessa restlessness than can only be quelled through prayer and obedience. Is God selecting you to give you weapon-grade faith and boldness?

You simply can’t stay where you are.  Something must break!  My advice to you is…do these things:

1.Be filled or refilled with the Holy Spirit.  You must have fire, or you must have fresh fire. The courage to face the onslaught of hatred that will be thrown at you can never be met by human power.  To say what you need to say and to obey when you need to obey, cannot come from human motivation.  You must have the same Spirit that has fueled world-changing saints throughout history. God never meant for anyone to preach or to lead without the power that the infilling of the Holy Spirit brings. Pray in the Spirit. Pray in tongues. Be bathed in prayer.

2. Make room for signs and wonders. Our culture will not be reached by mere words.  They must see proof of the power of God.  God means for you to provide that proof.

Paul wrote in 1 Cor. 2:4 “…my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.”

The authority you need won’t come cheaply or instantly.  (Read my blog on the price of God’s miracle working power https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e)

3. Get ready to do something for God that will boggle your mind. God is selecting people and working in them to impart unmatched power for attacking evil.  Habakkuk 1:5 “Look among the nations and watch—be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you.”

He is creating people who can turn the tide of wickedness.  He doesn’t care about your age or your education.  He searches for someone who is travailing over the evil and will die unless God fills them with power and purpose.  Someone who wants to be in the fight and who wants to be in the thick of it.  Isaiah 6:8 says, “Also, I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

4. Prepare to pray in a way you have never imagined. God is pulling you out of the damaged religious crowd into special intimacy with Himself.  You are not going to pray like you have in the past.  E. M. Bounds wrote, “To say prayers in a decent, delicate way, is not heavy work. But to pray really, to pray till hell feels the ponderous stroke, to pray till the iron gates of difficulty are opened, till the mountains of obstacles are removed, till the mists are exhaled and the clouds are lifted, and the sunshine of a cloudless day brightens—this is hard work, but it is God’s work, and man’s best labor.”

What do all of these things I am asking you to do have in common?  Every one of them involves a leap out of dead religion.  They are a courageous declaration of war on the godless ideologies that are destroying our nation.  They are an irrevocable decision to be in the middle of God’s greatest acts in history!

IS THERE A WORD?

Facebook oozes with the voices of those claiming to be “prophets” or “mouthpieces for God.”   The internet teems with self-appointed prophets who scream to be heard, bombarding us with “prophetic words.”  Almost all of these “prophecies” can be categorized into one of two headlines:

AMERICA IS PAST HOPE AND WILL BE DESTROYED!

AMERICA IS FAVORED AND WILL NEVER BE DESTROYED!

So, are either of these the word of the Lord for this hour?  This is what I hear the Lord saying.

Hear the word of the Lord!

To autonomously pronounce judgment, is to play God.  Doomsday “prophets” are calling off the attack against evil, when God is not.  They are sounding a false retreat.  They are making evangelism futile.  They are helping put souls in hell by discouraging soul-winners.

I would say this to those “prophets”: Don’t lie to yourself.  Don’t make up “prophecies” of judgment just because you are mad at the church.  Face it!  Your righteous indignation may be nothing more than a personal grudge you hold because your ministry was rejected by the church.

However, the great danger is not an abundance of prophets of doom.  It is the false prophets of cheap grace and entitlement, who are the most dangerous.

In a wonderful book entitled The American Miracle written by Michael Medved, we read about astounding and undeniable instances of God stepping in when America seemed beyond hope.  However, these examples are not proof that judgment won’t come.  To assume this is sheer madness.

I want to use George Washington as an example of something that desperately needs to be said to the American church.  Washington died at the age of 67 because of medical malpractice.  Back then, doctors believed in bleeding as a way to remove the “bad blood” from sick patients.  Washington was already weak from his illness, and by draining five pints of blood from him, the doctors made him too weak to fight the infection, and it finally killed him.  Today we know it was the worst thing they could have done.

Listen church!  Cheap grace is bleeding an already weakened church.   It helps set us up for national destruction.   For Satan, this is the perfect theology.   Instead of a life-giving conviction and a robust will to proclaim the Gospel, make disciples of all the nations, and fight against those who would destroy America—this perversion induces drowsiness and apathy.

Because they have adopted this doctrine of devils, many American pastors are closet alcoholics and addicted to porn.  And can you expect a poisoned vessel to preach a pure message on Sunday morning?

Past miracles don’t guarantee future mercy.  They should awaken urgency, an overpowering gratitude, humility, and profound soul-searching.  Throwing ourselves off the cliff of morality to prove the power of Grace, both tempts God, and provokes wrath.

God is trying to show us the times we are living in and what to do about it.

In 1 Chronicles 12:32, we read “of the sons of Issachar who understood the times, to know what Israel ought to do.”  The entire chapter lists the military talent of each tribe of Israel.  This gift: “to know what Israel ought to do,” was Issachar’s weapon.

These “prophets” who say America will be destroyed, or who say America cannot be destroyed, are dead wrong.  We are neither pardoned nor condemned.  Our fate has not yet been decided.

We are living in a moment of mercy: HOW SOON WE FORGET!  We were spared the horror of a Hillary presidency which would have been the finishing touch on Obama’s death spiral for America: a permanently enslaving national debt, a Supreme Court that would have chained us to anti-God laws, freedom-killing environmentalism, and open borders. All of these would have ushered in permanent control by the Democrat-Socialist Party, crime, and terrorism.

Trump’s election was a miracle that was intended by God to ignite the church.  But, his time in Washington will be short and ineffective, and in the end, we will be worse off than ever−if the church fails to obey God.

Trump has had missteps as president, but this does not by any means disqualify him from being the right choice.  We dare not abandon him so soon!  He needs our prayers.  He needs our support. As I wrote before, at least with Trump, we have a firewall to let us preach the Gospel and hold on for another miracle.

Here are the precise verses for this hour:

“And now for a little while grace has been shown from the Lord our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and give us a measure of revival in our bondage.  For we were slaves. Yet our God did not forsake us in our bondage; but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.” Ezra 9:8-9

If, after all the mercy God showed us in the miraculous election of 2016, we fail to repent, fail to rise, and to take our rightful place in America’s future, then, yes, we can indeed be destroyed.

Listen again to Ezra:

“And after all that has come upon us for our evil deeds and for our great guilt, since You our God have punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and have given us such deliverance as this, should we again break Your commandments, and join in marriage with the people committing these abominations? Would You not be angry with us until You had consumed us, so that there would be no remnant or survivor?” Ezra 9:13-14

Wrath comes when you do not properly respond to mercy:

“But Hezekiah made no return for the benefit he received, for his heart was proud; therefore, wrath came on him and on Judah and Jerusalem.” 2 Chronicles 32:25  (NASB)

Look again at Ezra’s words: “but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.”

 

Trump is a temporary reprieve.  Now is the time when we must do our part.  We must act on the mercy we have been shown.  God has extended mercy so that we would do three things:

Revive, Repair and Rebuild. 

Revive: God commands us to seek a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  We dare not have church without it!  We dare not utter another word in the pulpit that denies it!  The word of the Lord for this hour is: Cry out to God with a heart of gratitude for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit!

Here is the key promise if we do: 6 “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 7 And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.” 1 Samuel 10:6-7

Repair:  Both the pulpit and our moral compasses are broken.  They must be repaired!  Our wiring, our plumbing, and our foundations are damaged.  Abortion and marriage are issues we lost because our leadership was broken.  We abandoned the Bible and did not arm ourselves or our congregations with convictions.

America needs Lions of God who will roar from a righteous heart.  Away with secret sin and lukewarm grace!  Prayer will bring about the needed repair.  The voice that shakes hell and frees men and women from bondage is forged only in fervent prayer.  Satan does not respect your stage presence, your education, or your worldly tactics.  He recognizes a prayerless poser.  He only retreats before men and women who have been to Gethsemane.

Rebuild: We must come home to the Glorious Gospel.  We must dismantle all the silly things we have tried to say to this generation.  Forget about “rebranding”!  We need to rebuild our sermons from the ground up.  Let them be replete with Bible Verses.  Let them speak of the power of our mighty God.  Fill them with content the Holy Spirit can use to win lost souls!  Lift up the name of Jesus. The Good News must once again roll off our tongue in the office, on campus, and at the mall.

The consequences of cheapening God’s mercy are too terrible to imagine.

The opportunity this miracle has opened for us is too wonderful to ignore.

That is the word of the Lord for this hour!

God is in the most aggressive search

 

Many Christians and Pastors are in deep turmoil because God is chasing them down. The Lord God has begun a deep work in them that has made them strangers without a country. They don’t know where they fit. God won’t let them get good at something they are not supposed to be doing. They are done with business as usual.

Is there a deep work of God in you that is ruining you for this world? Are you done with the world system—especially the way it operates in the church?  Do you leave a service, thinking, “This is not it, there is something terribly wrong here.”  You can’t stomach the glitzy entertainment centers anymore. Again, I am talking about both pastors and parishioners. Believe me: BOTH preachers AND parishioners.

They are angry at egocentric preachers with grandiose, expensive, and carnal visions that have zero to do with winning souls.  They are sick of being distracted—even derailed from their first love.  Disciples are abandoning ‘attraction-church’ models in droves. Something revolutionary is happening deep inside them, because God has begun a secret work.

Honest pastors are also in divine turmoil.  The enemy condemned them for having a smaller church.  After years of blood, sweat, and tears, their churches were battered, broken, and diminished—because they can’t compete with ‘mega-church mania’.

And why can’t they compete? It’s because they have maintained their integrity!   When they see large crowds and big money pour effortlessly into churches that either hide or pervert the Gospel, it is easy to feel like a fool for staying true.  The Bible says, “Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain, And washed my hands in innocence. 14 For all day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning.” Psalm 73:13,14.

However, our friend in Psalm 73 came to a great conclusion. After being bulldozed by the success of the wicked, he took action “16 When I thought how to understand this, It was too painful for me—17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood their end.”  There are many pastors whose hearts are crying out for more—for a miracle they can’t even describe.

When the writer of Psalm 73 entered the sanctuary, exhausted and discouraged, the greatness of God overwhelmed him.  He saw that there is no version of this battle where Satan wins.  This is a part of the secret work God is doing in you!

A growing number of hungry hearts agree—with all its money and crowds—the compromised church did nothing to rebuke America’s sin.  The ‘seeker-friendly’ model was a house of cards that stood no chance against the onslaught being waged on the unborn, and on marriage.  While these men slept, there have been over 54 million abortions, divorce is rampant, and the institution of marriage has been perverted.  In the last 10 years we have lost battle after battle: in government, education, and the media.  We are a hopelessly divided nation, enduring a cold civil war between the Left and the Right.

 

The situation is dire. We are beyond words. The specter of President Trump who is being attacked at every turn; the economy tanking; witch hunters digging up dirt on anyone and everyone, even back to their childhood demonstrates that no human solution remains for America.

So God has taken matters into His own hands. At the approach of evil, God recruits people. He yearns to express His supremacy over evil, through purified vessels. He ruins them for everything—everything, except His Glory. At this present hour, God is conducting the most aggressive search for available servants in American history.

What He means to create—when He finds true surrender—is stunning. He will imbue them with power to perform notable miracles, and power to speak with irresistible force.

Deep, deep in my soul, where the real knowing happens—I know God is doing something new.  Every atom of my being tells me that God is doing a secret work in His people.  God is finished with hirelings. He is drawing a remnant out of corruption and into a special, supernatural nearness to Him.  They will empty themselves of everything—every ambition will be burned out. There will be nothing remaining except one purpose—to love and please the Lord Jesus Christ.

Is God doing a secret work in you?  Has God closed you in and stripped you of all enjoyment of lesser things?  Are you experiencing a divine frustration because you are supposed to be a part of something only God can do?

What if millions of Americans get so miserable that they cry out to God in total desperation?  What if their cry is too deep, and their hunger is too great, to ever be happy in a lukewarm church?  This is why the Holy Spirit is recruiting a new breed—a breed that can be trusted in the awakening that is coming.

God is doing a secret work!  He is drawing a remnant to Himself.  He is taking the prophetic core and communing with them, training them, empowering them and preparing them for one last mighty blast of power.  The Holy Spirit sees that our nation is hanging by a thread.  The death-rattle is in America’s throat.   Before God allows destruction, He is going to do one last massive miracle, and give America one last chance.

That is why God has uprooted and filled you with deep travailing. It may look like a crisis, and feel like chaos, but the dealing of God within you is right on time!  Look for these signs:

  • People no one has ever heard of will come to the forefront.  They will arrive with awesome power and piercing messages. Some will not be regular ministers.  In fact, the majority will not leave their secular careers while God is using them.  Some will be pastors who have failed and fallen, due to discouragement. They will be rebuilt, refueled, and re-ignited!

 

  • Strange locations will house massive outpourings.  Churches that have been small for years will become ground zero for the presence of God.   People will flock in from everywhere to these centers of fire and glory.  Stunning signs and wonders will rock entire communities.  Some churches will be forced to stay open 24 hours a day, just to handle the harvest.

God is doing a secret work in you.  He is making you miserable, to make you into a miracle.

A.C. Valdez was a child during the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Azusa Street. He later became an evangelist.  God showed him the future and here is what he said:

“All the electrifying adjectives in the dictionary shaken together, pressed down, and running over will not begin to describe the soon-to-come, greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit of all times. It is what the Bible calls, “the latter rain”.  You are going to see lay members carry out an amazing ministry through gifts of the Holy Spirit.  There will be wholesale cures of “incurable” conditions, healings of the blind, deaf, dumb, and handicapped, and creative miracles that will strain the imagination.  For those born without eyes, ears, fingers, arms or legs—or those who have lost them through disease or accidents—God will make new ones.  Many astonishing miracles will happen to bring on an international Christian breakthrough.”

I believe A.C. Valdez is not talking about a time far off in the future.  He is talking about now, because, my friend, it is now or never.

 

 

YOU MUST TAKE THE FIGHT TO THE GATES OF HELL

 

I knew I had reached a point of desperation that matched Jeremiah’s promise.  “And you will seek me and you will find me when you search for me with all your heart.”  The most shocking thing happened next. I recall that point of desperation and the cry of my heart: How do we reach America? The answer was stunning: It would involve risking my very life. It would be the most dangerous thing I have ever done.

The words thundered: “Then, you must take the fight to the gates of hell.” I must remind you of the most vivid dream of my life—the kind where you don’t know if you are awake or asleep.  I saw Highway 99. I saw it from Red Bluff all the way to Southern California. This artery of the great Central Valley is special to God. In the dream I saw a river—Ezekiel’s river, flowing with great healing properties, trees of righteousness on both banks. The voice in my dream said, “This is a corridor of glory.”

I did not understand why I was getting this dream. It was hidden in the Spirit until just recently. It portends a miracle of a magnitude I cannot fathom−especially when you consider the condition of Sacramento, Silicon Valley, and Hollywood. At this moment, these bastions of California have declared war—war on the Federal Government—war on the church—and has even declared war on science. For that matter, it has declared war on anyone or anything that disagrees with their radical agenda. How far gone are California Leftists?

At his own inauguration, Governor Gavin presented neither a vision nor a plan for the new “nation-state” of California—he simply flew into a rant against President Trump and emphasized that California is a total sanctuary state. Silicon Valley alone possesses power that boggles the mind. This bastion of technology and social media controls information like no other agency on earth. Right now, social media is an unchallenged mouthpiece to billions, and it is under the control of Leftist atheists.

Their power to brainwash young minds is beyond staggering. They have the power to shut down any voice they wish—and the voices they shut down are notably Christian, conservative, and patriotic. Facebook shut down Franklin Graham! If that doesn’t give you a chill, nothing will. If they won’t hesitate to silence the chief voice of Evangelical Christianity…what will they do to the rest of us?

California Assembly Bill 2943 has been delayed. It’s the bill that will ban the Bible by coming in through the back door. It means to ban any literature that suggests that intervention is needed for anyone living a gay lifestyle. I quote: “Contemporary science recognizes that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is part of the natural spectrum of human identity and is not a disease, disorder, or illness.” and, “(i) (1) “Sexual orientation change efforts” means any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation. This includes efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex.”    https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201720180AB2943

Faith doesn’t matter, fact doesn’t matter, science doesn’t matter, and now, outcome doesn’t matter either. Sacramento politicians are one big ‘never mind’. ‘Never mind’ that California is dead-last in education and a slew of other quality of life categories. ‘Never mind’ that they are spending like a thief with a stolen credit card. ‘Never mind’ that innocent people are murdered by illegal aliens that they protect from being arrested. California politicians, tech moguls, Hollywood and media have made an unmistakable declaration. They will remake America in the miserable and decrepit image of California. They are the black hole that can suck a nation into its abyss.

What can we possibly do about all this? What we must do is put our natural mind aside and obey God!  What God says will stand. What God commands will triumph over the enemy. Never forget that California has been the catalyst to historic revivals and has launched worldwide Christian ministries. Those wells are still in the heart of California. That dream has lain dormant in my spirit until now, but now God has ordered me to take the tent down the Hwy. 99 corridor.

 

Living Proof California follows the route I saw in my dream. Marysville has already been touched. Then Paradise received Beauty for Ashes.  The tent crusade in Stockton is only 17 days away. Fresno and Dinuba are already confirmed.  The rest of our targeted cities are in the works. Our goal is to do an outdoor rally in Southern California and culminate everything near the State Capitol in Sacramento.  If you live near the 99 corridor, the tent is coming to a site near you.  Will these crusades turn California around? That is totally in God’s hands. What I do know is the Lord will hit demons hard in California. All we can do, and must do, is obey the voice of God.

The greatest breakthrough we have had is Stockton, where the Lord opened the door for us, to give us the very best location. Remember: that crusade is only 17 days from now!

“I am asking you to obey God by starting to pray right now.  Pray for the workers to come into the harvest. Pray for protection as we expect high resistance from the enemy. Pray for abundant provision because we have invested massive amounts of money to make this invasion possible.

The urgent message of this newsletter is this: The best way to touch America right now is to invade California. I couldn’t understand that at first, but now I do. It is the way of God to take the fight directly to the main threat. We are going to take the threat to the gates of hell. Literally. I am hoping, with a great hope, that you will see this, and join us!

Acts 4:29-30 says, “Now Lord, Behold their threats and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may preach Your word while you stretch out Your hand to heal and let signs and wonders be done in the name of Your Holy Son Jesus.”

California is a great threat to America. This state may have deep perversion and intellectual arrogance, but none of these things can withstand the mighty power of God. The Holy Spirit is at work to empower and guide a mighty invasion of California’s Central Valley. Pray! Get involved.  No matter where or what country you live in…you can pray! I feel a miracle is on the horizon!

Will you volunteer to help me in Stockton?

GOOD NEWS

There is good news that I have been hesitant to bring you because it seemed too good to be true. I wanted to be sure that it was not just a temporary phase. It is time for me to tell you my own wonderful discovery. But first I want to address something on a much wider scale than my own personal experience.

Is the American church going the way of the hula hoop and the lava lamp? Is it just a matter of time until our faith dies out in America? Leftists love to say this, but it turns out it is a total lie.

Glenn T. Stanton wrote in an article entitled New Harvard Research Says U.S. Christianity Is Not Shrinking, But Growing Stronger:

“New research published late last year by scholars at Harvard University and Indiana University Bloomington is just the latest to reveal the myth. This research questioned the “secularization thesis,” which holds that the United States is following most advanced industrial nations in the death of their once vibrant faith culture. Churches becoming mere landmarks, dance halls, boutique hotels, museums, and all that.

“Not only did their examination find no support for this secularization in terms of actual practice and belief, the researchers proclaim that religion continues to enjoy “persistent and exceptional intensity” in America. These researchers hold our nation “remains an exceptional outlier and potential counter example to the secularization thesis.””

 

It seemed too good to be true, but then I started getting the calls—calls from leaders who openly opposed the positions I have been declaring in these blogs. They were offended by my insistence on letting the Holy Spirit move.

They began to tell me how they are seeking God and repenting. They began to tell me how they changed their sermons. What is really stunning is that the power of God is flowing in their services, and the crowds which were there for entertainment are now clamoring for more Bible. Prayer meetings are starting to outdraw church socials.

Where we feel it the most is in our tent crusades. Churches who were in deep division are now joining together. They are dropping their differences in order to win the lost.

I can only report to you what is happening in my corner of the world. I was afraid this was just a passing fancy, but it appears that this change is truly taking hold!

You, our faithful readers, have a real hand in this miracle. I freely admit that I have been stern, but apparently what I have been writing is taking hold in the hearts of leaders. The good news is that hearts are turning back toward God, and it appears to be expanding.

If you think that means I will let up in my intensity in speaking the Word of the Lord—think again. We still have widespread corruption, error, and counterfeits at work in the church.  Let us at least rejoice that leaders are beginning to listen to prophets, teachers, and in some cases, even to me.  All glory to God!

OUR TENT CRUSADE IN PARADISE BEGINS THURSDAY. COME IF YOU CAN. PLEASE PRAY.

 


 

 

 

Breaking News

Do you know the difference between turning a row boat around and turning an aircraft carrier around. No that is not the opening line to a DAD joke. It is a deadly serious question. Because you see I am in the process of doing that very thing.
To add extra nights to a church meetings is the row boat. You simply announce it and make a few changes in your schedule. Try to guess what the aircraft carrier is?

At this hour, a cloud of something very special hangs or the Marysville and Yuba City areas. Quite simply people are getting born again here night and day. A radiating conviction and draw of the Holy Spirit is felt generally…that means it is not limited to one location or to one time.
A team went to the mall and the first three people they prayed for were instantly healed. Tonight at the tent an Episcopal priest opened in prayer. Testimonies of miraculous healing are coming to us from many directions.
What does it mean? It means an event far and away beyond a good meeting has overtaken us. It means we have no choice but to stay and bring in this historic harvest.

We are moving to the Colusa Casino Stadium

We have no choice but to turn  the aircraft carrier around.  We are taking down this tent and putting up a bigger one. Not only that, we are  moving to a new venue—a baseball stadium. You heard it right—a baseball stadium.
When I began praying for Living Proof California I asked for more than I could imagine. I prayed, “Jesus, the darkness is so deep and the need so vast that we need a surpassing demonstration of your power. Well here it is.

The amount of effort it will take to remove one tent, move to a new site and set up another is only a part of the logistics that we are facing. Now we have the whole town’s attention. Now bigger devils will oppose us. If ever we needed your prayers we need them now!
On the other hand it is time to rejoice for indeed an event—not of this earth has come to the Yuba and Sutter counties.  Rejoice child of God, this is going to be amazing.
