December 2007 Partner Letter
Dearest Prayer Partners,
The day before Thanksgiving was my first day home after an intensive few months schedule, ending with three weeks in Europe. (So much to witness to you in this report!) But, first, it was so special to help The Hope Center as Melissa, Kylie, and helpers served 840 Thanksgiving meals. It made Thanksgiving and my homecoming especially meaningful.
Rosh HaShannah 2007 Tour
In September 85 people walked in unity and made this tour successful as we visited the Land of Israel during a time of extreme political and spiritual significance. A professionally made-for-TV documentary of this seminar tour gives an up-to-date view of the situation leading to the Annapolis conference. A biblical prospective makes clear what God has to say about Israel's and Jerusalem's place in His plan. One ministry ordered multiple copies and said, "This is so up-to-date and concise. We want to get it into the hands of everyone we can."
Eagle Mountain's Days of Refreshing was the first stop after Israel. Keith Moore taught a wonderful series on preparing for the Presence of God. I finished the week so blessed by Pastors George and Terry Pearsons and the spirit of this great annual meeting.
Then, there was another meeting in Tyler where I met people who were principal characters in Brother Kenneth E. Hagin's stories. For you who have listened to him a long time, I met Dr. D. D. Lewis' daughter and niece. It was Dr. Lewis who in 1952 told Brother Hagin, "My 23-year old niece has cancer of both lungs. I hope she will be healed in this meeting." After she was carried into the healing line the fourth time, Brother Hagin stepped into a visible cloud of Glory that enveloped him and her. He saw a monkey-like demon attached to her left lung. He cast it out. The woman was completely healed. Her cousins told me she is in excellent health today!
Prayer Mountain Prayer Meeting
People came from almost every state and many other countries to work together in prayer. The Lord gave us two primary assignments. 1) Pray for a leader for your nation. 2) Pray for the Church.
One night Rachel Teafatiller, joining us by telephone, led Spirit- anointed prayer for a leader for our country! I don't know who the person is-but according to a prophecy through Pastor Dale Smith from Australia, God has anointed a leader. Also, according to the prophecy, just as David was anointed before he became king, and faced perils through which God kept him, this person would walk a like path and would need our continuing prayers. (I Timothy 2:1,2.)
Pray for the Church
When I heard this assignment in my spirit, I thought, Pray what? For revival? For an awakening? For an outpouring? For the gifts of the Spirit? For souls?
Then it came to me that all of these things and so much more are included in the Glory of God-the manifested Presence of God.
And so we did. We prayed.
Our appetites were whetted by testimonies in Brother Tommy Welchel's new book, They Told Me Their Stories (The Youth and Children of Azusa Street Tell Their Stories.) Brother Welchel spent six years during the 1960s living among the saints of God who were youth during the Azusa Revival (1906-1910). The book just came out in 2006, however. Amazing miracles are described in detail by those God used to minister them through-the youth. People from all over the world came to Azusa where arms and legs were growing out, the blind, the crippled, were made whole. Where basketball-sized tumors disappeared. And they carried back with them the truth of the baptism with the Holy Spirit. Every testifying saint declared that the manifestation of a cloud they called the Shakinah Glory was in the building every day for 3 1/2 years. Sometimes a flame of fire would be seen rising up from the roof only to be met by a flame of fire coming down from heaven. Oh, what an evangelistic tool is the Glory, the manifest Presence of God!
Europe and the Glory of God
Brother Rick Van Este, a man people say is so like Jesus, picked up Shelli, Betty King, and me in Brussels and we drove to the North Sea shore for the FGBMFI National Convention. As Brother Rick led in prayer in the car, we were enveloped in the spirit of prayer. Things prayed out in the car happened in the meeting.
Ian MacCormick, a man who died after being stung by jellyfish, was a speaker. His ministry has the touch of heaven on it. (www.aglimpseofeternity.org) In the conference the Glory of God manifested in souls born again, miracles of healings, and in many other ways. One woman whose hand was crushed and had been in a cast for weeks was instantly healed. Doctors said she would never work at her old job of sewing again. Monday she went back to work.
Brother Rick wrote, "Belgium will never be the same again. Our dream of the Glory and the manifested presence of the Lord is started."
At John and Lilianne Rood's church the Glory continued to manifest. Pastors came over from Northern Ireland and from Holland. Here the anointing was on the song It's beginning to Rain, as well as on a very drunk Pastor Rood.
We came at the invitation of two groups. The Lutherans. And a Full Gospel Word Church.
At the FGBMFI convention, a man came up to me and quietly told me what he had seen when we sang together in unity what Israel sang at the dedication of the Temple in 2 Chronicles 5: 13, Hallelujah! Ki Tov! Ki L'olam Chasdo! (Hallelujah! For He is Good! For His Mercy Endureth Forever!) He saw a cloud of Glory over our heads and pearls dropping like rain from it.
In Paris a wonderful Philippine lady greatly used in that city for God met us. She invited us to a fashion show of pearls held in a beautiful theatre. The Philippine Ambassador was there along with several French senators. The Philippines are known for pearls. The evening was delightful and we came to see that the pearls God was drawing our attention to were the Philippine people of the Pastor Bong Bugarin's Good Shepherd Church.
Our first ministry, however, was in the Billettes Lutheran Church at Vespers. In two subsequent sessions at this church I taught on "The Jews and Israel in Bible Prophecy." After the last meeting Pastor Joly stood and invited me back next year.
The Bishop of Paris, Marie-France Robert, received us in her office. I felt an affinity with this lovely woman when she spoke of how she'd gone as a missionary to Madagascar as a young woman. How her family had not understood. How lonely she was at first. And then how an older missionary gave her a Scripture which sustained her and which she still uses to this day.
In her and in Pastor Joly I saw a spirituality in the Lutheran leadership. She told me that they pray together regularly, "deep in God." I believe this is especially for this hour.
The meetings in the Jesus the Good Shepherd Church were full of Glory. The sweet Pastors want the Glory of God. I taught on that subject-one I've been teaching more than 30 years. And in Europe I saw things I've yearned to see for all those years.
What so impressed me in Paris was the unity among the body of Christ. The Pentecostal Word church and the Lutherans have invited me back in November to teach on Eschatology. They will work together on it.
We are one! There is only one body! But Jesus prayed that our unity would be accompanied by a manifestation of God's Glory that would speak to the world (John 17). I saw it in Europe. I have been going to Europe for 30 years and I have never seen what I am seeing now. And indeed it can be seen anywhere the body will work in unity.
A transportation strike hit Paris the day before we were to fly to Nice. People who usually take public transportation drive their own cars and gridlock the city. We were in the center of the city, a long way from the airport. A van from near the airport was to pick us up at 9:30am. The driver phoned that he'd be late. He'd been on the road more than two hours and was stuck. I prayed, "Lord, You made a way for Moses and the Children of Israel through the Reed Sea. Please make a way for us through this traffic." The driver arrived at 9:45. But he didn't know if we would make our flight. We told him about the prayer we'd prayed.
As we drove along at what seemed a normal rate of speed, we all noticed something. In front of and behind our van there appeared to be a long space between us and the other cars. The driver touched his eyes and said, "I'm seeing a miracle. Look at the traffic going the opposite way." It was gridlocked. It took us only 30 minutes to reach the airport. Not even as long as it normally took. We were three hours early. "I've seen a miracle," the driver kept saying.
Pastor Marie-Helene Moulin has moved her church to Nice after 12 years in another location. The move is a good one! New people come every week. For several weeks they experienced such freedom. Then they noticed it became "hard" to minister–for no apparent reason. Our first meeting was difficult. The Lord revealed during the night that the church had slipped into Nice "under the radar" and that three evil princes in the heavenlies over that city were late in finding out the church was there. Then they began to resist. As soon as the Pastor heard this, her eyes lit up. They took their authority and the next meeting was full of the Glory of God and many healings! Thank God for the authority of the believer.
Recently the Lord gave me all of Psalm 118. In verse 13 it says, "Thou (Satan) hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me." Hallelujah! The Name helped me. The ineffable Name of God-Yod Heh Vav Heh is used throughout this Psalm. Then He gave me Psalm 116:7, "Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee." Also, Psalm 118:7, "The LORD taketh my part with them that
Thank God, you are one of those He uses to help us. This glorious trip and the future is in His blessing upon our partnership in His service. Thank you for helping us go into this amazing upcoming year able to obey what He gives us to do. We need you. Thank you for remembering us in your end of year giving. And thank you especially for your monthly partnership. May God's Richest and Best Be Yours!
Love in Him,
