The call of an intercessor...

What about Prayer Warriors and Intercessors? Is there a difference?

Rees Howells, in the book "Intercessor" by Norman Grubb, is quoted as saying: "A prayer warrior can pray for a thing to be done without necessarily being willing for the answer to come through himself; and he is not bound to continue in the prayer until it is answered. But an intercessor is responsible to gain his objective, and he can never be free till he has gained it. He will go to any lengths for the prayer to be answered through himself. But once a position of intercession has been gained, tested and proved, the intercessor can claim all the blessings on that grade, whenever it is God's will for him to do so."

Known as one of the most selfless Intercessors the church has known, Howells and his student intercessors in Wales were called upon by Winston Churchill to intercede with God for the well-being of Britain during the Second World War. The biography by Norman Grubb, reveals that there were important spiritual Truths that Howells discovered, regarding the ministry of the "Intercessor."

Preparation:

1. Intercessors are called to a Hidden Life: call to Intercession proved the first step away from public ministry. Howells shared that he was trained, by the Holy Spirit, to care more about what God thought, than what man thought! He had to die to self, before God could use him as an intercessor.

2. Early on in Howells' training, he was allowed to intercede on behalf of people whom he was personally able to minister to... but later, he was to intercede for specific people whom he never was to meet. "There was a soul whom he had never met, whom he had no possible means of influencing except by way of the Throne..." The Lord said, 'This will be the test case of your intercession.' ... "for this he was going to be turned aside from his work among men to deal only with God."

3. An intercessor is to be one totally given over to the ministry of the Holy Ghost, through whom spiritual warfare is waged... the army of the intercessors, filled with the Holy Ghost with only one purpose in life.. to do that which God commands! To stand in the gap and bring the Victory to reality. Hidden away, living by faith... standing on the promises of God... praying what God calls forth, by His Word.

The call to Intercession: And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none... Ezek. 22:30

Example of Intercession:
On March 29, 1936 Rees Howells came to the Bible College he had established in Wales and called forth in regard to Hitler's threat to Britain: "Prayer has failed. We are on slippery ground. Only intercession will avail. God is calling for intercessors -- men and women who will lay their lives on the altar to fight the devil, as really they would have to fight the enemy on the western front." It was made clear that a soldier at the front has no say in where he goes and what he does; he cannot take holidays or attend to the claims of the home and loved ones as other people can; and the Lord was telling them that if, as really as that, some would become bondslaves to the Holy Spirit for every creature, and would throw their lives into the gap (Ezek.22:30), He would give the victory and avert war. A large number of staff and students made the surrender. "We came right through" said Mr. Howells, "and I knew from that time on, Hitler was no more than a rod in the hands of the Holy Ghost."

May God call forth an Army of Intercessors right now! Who will lay their lives on the altar day after day... willing to die for the sake of the Truth! Praise God for the Intercessors of our generation! May they be closed into God Himself... calling for His desires... pleading for His purposes. Crying for His attention! Dead to themselves... alive unto Christ! Separate. Hidden. Cleansed, Holy vessels of warfare, armed for the battle ahead, filled with the Holy Ghost. God, call forth your Intercessors for this generation!

God bless you all,
Linda

NEWSLETTER

The Prayer Line has been very busy, and the need for prayer has never been more important. We are depending upon you all to hold up our hands, as we keep up with the changing times, and the mounting needs of our World. Relationship problems seem to be at an all time high, and of course cancer is always at the top of the list in many requests. So we are entering a new phase of PRAYER in our lives, and we need the Holy Spirit's help more then ever to teach us how to pray as we ought.

I told you in the last Newsletter that our Phone Card wasn't working out. We have been praying now to see what it is the Lord would have us do to support the Ministry and be a blessing to others at the same time. We are now going to open a Bookstore, and we are also going to designing our own line of Morning-Star Rising gifts, with the Morning-Star Rising Logo. Pray for us to do this right and to pick the right gifts to offer.

Our Web Master is re-designing the site, and putting in some really nice things to help it be more automated. We will have an Angel Greeting Card page, and Bookstore, also a Gift store when the Morning-Star gifts are selected.

We will be changing and posting different Prophetic words that come in regularly on the Words for Women Page. Check it to keep up on what Gods people are here from the Spirit around the World. I will be posting a message on the latest view on Y2K. There have been many different views on this, it is a brand new one. Also there is a new message on what Revival isn't.

PROPHETIC WORD

... I would like to share a word the Lord spoke on Sept. 11, 1994, a word which has become a Divine Standard in my life - by which I lay along side everything that would come into my life.. I question: how does it measure up to the standard of total and complete dependence upon Jesus Christ? Maybe others have received this instruction also?

The word as I received it on Sept. 11, 1994 --

My Yoke: Dependence Upon Me

Whatever steals your dependence upon ME is evil. Anthing that is raised up and places itself in MY place is evil. Anthing that places itself in MY place is evil. Anything that steals your dependence on ME is EVIL.

Anything that places itself as a necessary covering, steals your dependence upon Me and is a deception from the Evil One. My Yoke is easy, for My Yoke is only this: Dependence Upon ME. Dependence upon Me is the only yoke you need. All other yokes are bondage from the enemy.

Turn and repent from these yokes that you have picked up. Turn and repent from the Evil. Am I the Lord of your life? AM I? Not unless you have shed those yokes of bondage that you have been carrying. I am revealing these Yokes of Bondage... for apart from Me all is evil. Take up My Yoke for it is easy. Have Faith that I am all that you need.

PRAYER & INTERCESSION

Heavenly Father we thank you now for your Holy Spirit to teach us how to pray. Give us all more time and more desire to draw closer to you and to take our rightful place in heavenly places, so that we might pray from your out look on earthly things. Give us new insight and direction on how to pray in the Spirit, and to pray with all prayer.

Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

1 Co 14:15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

Ro 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

The Life of Job is an example of God training up an intercessor and priest.

Job 42
8 Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you [after your] folly, in that ye have not spoken of me [the thing which is] right, like my servant Job.
10 And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
12 So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.

And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come, and let him that is a thirst come. And whosever will, let him take the water of life Freely. Revelation 22:17.
