Memorial Day Prophesy, May 29, 2011.

1 Sam 2:4
“The bows of the mighty men are broken,
And those who stumbled are girded with strength.”

A request for prayer for the Lord’s direction, and a prophesy regarding America’s church.

Family Reunion

Please respond, friends and family, as soon as possible. There is much preparation needed and time is of the essence. We want this to be a celebration of what God is doing in our lives and a time of further direction for us all as we seek Him.

Also we believe God is going to bless us all in a refreshing of His presence. Please, if you sense God's work in this, and if this is what you want to join us in, pray and fast occasionally for His anointing on this time. Ask God what he wants you to do. Please pray for God's direction. We need it now more than ever.

Further Matters

I also covet your prayers at this time. (Peter, I need you to pray for me too.) I really sense more and more daily a call to purity and holiness. I really sense (almost fear in a good way) that God is challenging me to begin a new fellowship of believers who want more of His presence. I have resisted the call of ministry for a long time, fearing my inadequacy.

I don't feel in me the heart of a pastor. I am too harsh and hard. I know. But God keeps pushing me further into this corner that I can't get out of, and assures me that He is the Shepherd. That He will supply the grace if I will allow Him.

Beloved, we are about to enter into more severe persecution than ever understood in the American church. We have let down the hedge, and new gods have rushed in. Who will stand in the gap? God allows persecution to bring our hearts closer to Him. Many false prophets are in our nation today. But they will not prevail. The Word of God says "If they speak not according to this Word, there is no light in them." God wants His church to return to the simplicity of the Gospel. The true church is a teacher of the Word of God, not of the fanciful ideas of men.

The last great prophet of God to America has passed recently into the presence of the LORD. David Wilkerson passed away this month. Is our nation now bereft of a Word from God? Not at all, for the LORD has yet many unknown who have not bowed the knee to Baal. Church, wake up! Shake off the ropes Delilah has tied you with. Get out of the churches that persecute your faith. Enter into the fellowship of the disdained, the castoffs, the crucified.

I am praying about what it is that God wants me to do. It may be to pastor a house church, or it may be to just shut up let my heart be crucified. I can say like Jeremiah "Amen! The LORD perform your word! But you do not speak what the prophets spoke before you. So we shall see who is right when your word fails!"

God is calling a holy people, not followers of signs and wonders, and not following pretty words and nice poetry or songsters. "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path." Orbs and gems, gold dust and fragrant oil are not of my Spirit, any more than sacrifices of bulls and goats were for my people Israel. I am calling a people of Holy Fear who trust only the Rhema Word. And My Rhema is always and only the Bible in your lap.

Open my Word and forget the words of the prophets of confusions says the LORD. The time is soon coming American church, that that is all you will have and they will try to take that from you. Only those who have hid my Word in their hearts will survive.

I am not ashamed to say that this is a prophetic message to the American church, recorded this day, May 28, 2011; Memorial Day Weekend. The zeal of the LORD shall perform it.
