BEING A HOUSE OF PRAYER

God is preparing Many to enter into a Gathering time of Prayer. Recently I read a book about the History of Revival in our Nation. During the 1850's there was a time of such Great Spiritual Awakening that Prayer meetings went on all day, and where so large that people where left standing outside. Many didn't go to work, and some Work places simply had to close down and let the Holy Spirit have its way. I had always thought that the Great Revivals we heard about in Wells and Ireland, started there, and came here, but it was the other way around. Many from over the Sea heard of what the Lord was doing here, and came here to see, and then went Home and the Lord began to work there as well. But it was a Great Move of Prayer. It brought Great conviction on people so much that they simple fell and laid prostrate on the floor in public places.( Revival Fire by Wesley Duewel)

WORD ON WRESTLING IN THE NIGHT WATCHES OF OUR LIVES

Since the beginning of this year, many have been wrestling in the nightwatches. They feel terribly isolated. They felt called by God to come apart into the wilderness to spend time in intimate isolation and relationship with Him.

In obedience to the Lord to come apart to be with Him, they have left all. They've watched as all they have been involved in has passed them by. They have ventured alone into the wilderness.

Instead of finding the Lord, they have found that it feels as if God has left them. They have forced themselves to wrestle in prayer, to wrestle in fasting, to wrestle in reading the Word. They have wrestled with despair, they have wrestled with discouragement, they have wrestled with memories of past experiences. They have wrestled with remaining alone in the wilderness instead of abandoning their wrestling.

All through the long nightwatches, they have wrestled. Now, just as day is breaking, the hand of the Lord has fallen upon them. They feel that God's hand has broken and changed in some fashion something deep within them. This is the most critical time of their wrestling. Even though they are now wounded, they continue to wrestle.

It is at this moment of deepest pain and darkness, that the Lord will come to them, and speak words of blessing and encouragement to them.

The Lord will change their name. Those who have been called fearful, will now be called brave. Those who have been called doubting, will now be called believing. Those who have been called forsaken, will now be called beloved. Those who have been called cast down, will now be called hopeful.

The Lord is speaking to them of how they have prevailed in their wrestling. He has wounded them. He has left His mark upon them for all of time.

Many have seen the Lord in their time of face-to-face wrestling with Him. Their wound from the hand of the Lord is also their blessing from Him. From their season of night time wrestling, they have prevailed, and they will never be the same.

They are even now passing over the brook. The sun is rising upon them even as they limp painfully away from their time of wrestling.

Just as Jacob immediately met his estranged brother, Esau, after his time of wrestling, so also will many immediately meet their fiercest adversary and enemy immediately after their time of wrestling. The Lord had already spoken to Esau about treating Jacob well. The Lord has also gone ahead of many of us to smooth the path before us. We have prevailed in our wrestling, and will also prevail over any enemy that is coming towards us.

As Jacob crossed over the brook Jabbok, the sun rose upon him. The sun is also rising upon us. The SON has risen upon us.

After his meeting and reconciliation with Esau, Jacob (who God had renamed "Israel"), built a house. He then built an altar. He called the altar "El-elohe-Israel" ~~ which means, "God the God of Israel."

Those who have been wrestling in the night watches, the sun is rising, and it is time to pass over the brook. This is the time to build a house for the Lord to dwell within. It is time for us to build some altars.

This has been not only a time of wrestling, but a time of being sifted. Through our wrestlings, we have been sifted of the impurities that were within us.

The end of our wrestling does not automatically bring us discernible victory. We will perceive what is coming against us to be evil (as Jacob perceived the coming of his brother, Esau). Those things coming against us will blind us and cause us to imagine things that will terrify and trouble us. We need to be careful to discern all that is before us in the coming days, and to perceive these things correctly through the Holy Spirit.

This is a time to build ~~ to build altars, to build a habitation within our hearts for the Lord to dwell within. This building will transpire during troublesome times, yet we are not to despair or become discouraged. The Lord is with us and will sustain us. At this time, there are certain things transpiring that we are unable to fully know or comprehend.

The words Jesus spoke to Simon Peter, He also speaks to us today ~ "...What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter." (John 13:7)

NEWSLETTER

We went through a time when the Prayer Requests where so heavy, we could barely keep up with answering them, and posting them. So we have gotten behind on everything else. Do keep us in prayer as we begin to update things and add new things to keep you all inspired as to who you are in Christ. We have already added many NEW messages to the Words for Women Page. But in a few Months we will be adding something to our Ministry that will uplift you all spirit, soul, and body. So please pray for guidance, and direction in the days ahead. Pray for the Lord to bring a new vision to the spiritually-minded women. We are believing the Lord to bring us a new dimension on how he wants his Bride to be treated, and how he wants us to live and take care of ourselves, so that we may more fully reflect that Glory, in order to glorify him in our daily lives. Pray for the technical things that need to be done to the site. We need help in this area, and we need constantly be working to improve things, and make them easier to use.

Thank you all for your support throughout the Year. We don't ask for donations, but when we receive them, it is as if the Lord himself appeared, and said, "WELL DONE MY GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT". Yes we do need encouragement, and we need to see the Lord blessing the work of our hands. Most of the donations we receive enable us to respond to those who are in need. We minister to many women who are in transition, and often they have no money at all to get their lives into a new place in order to live the way God wants them to. So do pray for this to be an area we can respond to more compassionately as the year begins.

We have not given up on having a place for women to live in their retirement years. We want to establish a home environment for women to live in and be surrounded with other women so we can keep each other company and be a support and family to those who have none. This is a real challenge, and we will be putting together a concrete plan to establish this vision, in God's timing. So if any of you are interested in investing in your future, and want to participate in establishing this vision, we welcome your response, and support. As we complete the plans, we will see how the Lord wants to run it, and how he wants to finance it.

Without faith it is impossible to please God, so we will continue to walk by FAITH, and move out in 2001 to do exploits, in Jesus Mighty name, and we welcome you all to send your Dreams and Visions, as well as Beauty tips, or Poems. All insight or articles for the spiritually-minded woman is more then welcome.

God bless each and everyone of you, your families and homes.

Love to you all in Jesus Holy Spirit,
Terry & Ann

PROPHETIC WORD

The Wise Men Are Coming Into The House!

While sitting in the Lord's presence, He began to show me a distinct picture that men and women holding key positions in the media and communications would be coming to the House of God in the days ahead. They are being drawn here, not a church, a religious system, but to the House of God, His dwelling place, His abiding place. As I watched this picture unfold, I began to hear the Lord speak to me. "Many 'Wise Men' are coming to the House of God, filled with the wisdom of this age, which has amounted to nothing. They are coming to My House, seeking answers for these perilous times, For indeed, I shall lead many wise men into My house. For even though many do not know me, yet they know of me. I shall place a sign, a star, a guiding light to get them to My destination for it is there that they will find Me in the simplicity of a child. For have I not said that I would make foolish the wisdom of this world? Have I not said that in My wisdom, the world through its wisdom does not know Me? For I will draw many wise men back into My house in the days ahead. Why am I doing this? I will remove their mantle of worldly wisdom which has carried them to this point but has left them seeking and searching amidst the chaos of this world's system. I will clothe them anew with My righteousness, and My wisdom. Repentance will come upon them and their eyes, once blinded, shall be opened to 'see.' In pursuing Me, I will anoint the talents that I have placed within each one for My kingdom purpose. They will be My voice in the coming days. To many of these wise men, I will transform their words from speaking death, to bringing forth LIFE, the reality of Christ Jesus. They, like the Wise Men of old, shall lay down their gifts at the feet of the Savior and they will rejoice for they will have found what they have been looking for their whole life -TRUTH. As world events have transpired before their eyes, chaos has invaded their inner being. But I have come to set many free, to establish order by My Spirit within their lives, unveiling before then the way, the truth, and the life found in My Son. By My Spirit, I will establish order where there is chaos and confusion in their perception of world events.Yes, many will speak forth the news but it shall be the Good News, the living news of a Savior. Those coming will supernaturally be led to places that shall bring them forth into a clear revelation of the simplicity, the humility, and the purity found in the Christ child. Many are being unraveled and divested of their own plans and purposes, but I will say that if they look up away from the wisdom of the world and all it has to offer, following my 'star' I will provide a sure path for their feet into eternal TRUTH. There is a supernatural encounter awaiting those who will call upon Me and seek My face. Upon receiving what I have for them, they, like the Wise Men, shall depart for their own country another way, for I shall place them back into the system they have left to change, challenge, and to reform it in My way, by My truth. They will arise with My voice for this hour."

THE BRIGHT AND MORNING-STAR

Re 2:28 And I will give him the morning star. Re 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star.

Lu 1:78 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the day spring from on high hath visited us,

Lu 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and [in] the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

2 Pe 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.
