CHRIST IS RISEN

Is Christ truly risen, and seated on the right hand of God, with all Power and authority in Heaven and on Earth? YES HE IS RISEN, and he led Captivity Captive, and gave GIFTS unto men. These gifts where to equip us to preach the Gospel. But the Church of today doesn't preach the Gospel of Faith, but the Gospel of Prosperity. We have a risen Saviour, but a dead Body ---The Church, that needs a Resurrection. Just as the disciples slept while Jesus sweated Blood, the Church is sleeping. While doctrines of Demons are preached from most pulpits, Jesus is about to overthrow the Money Changers. Resurrection Life has nothing to do with earthly prosperity. The Lord has given us a Mission to accomplish, and while the Church is trying to get prosperous, thousands are going to HELL.

The Body of Christ as we call it in American, has no POWER--Christ can't use it. The Lords Mighty Power can only transform, and renew a body that is dead to this Life. Buried with him in the likeness of his death, and Resurrected in the Newness of Life. Set apart to serve and follow him. Not one serving itself, and its earthly needs. Just as the Jewish leaders of Christ's day had the people in Bondage, by making money off them on the Temple Grounds. So are today's teachers, and TV ministers. They hold the masses in Bondage by teaching False Doctrines, that have no Spiritual impact to enable them to walk in the Spirit. They teach discontentment, and wordly gain.

The Church, like Lazarus, needs a MIGHTY CALLING FORTH from the DEAD LIfe of the present Tomb it is in. There are many followers like Mary, who have never stopped following him, and are still watching and waiting, hearing from him. He speaks to those who are holding on to his feet. Many Marthas' with faith to boldly say "Lord I believe, and I know even now there is something you can do for Lazarus"--- So even now there are those praying for the sleeping Church to be called Forth and Resurrected From the Grave Cloths of False Doctrines into the Glorious Liberty and Power that he desires to give his BRIDE. We Need a Mighty Awakening on this New Millineum Easter, and we Need the Power of his Resurrection to revive our own lives, and renew us into his Service as the prophetic clock is once again ticking in the Middle East, and Gods plans for this planet are getting read to Explode, around the World.

John11: 25 Jesus said unto her, I am the Resurrection, and the Life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this??????????

Hello Precious Prayer Partners,

As we now are entering into the Greatest Season of all, the Resurrection Celebration of our Lord, we want to tell you all what a blessing you have been to us. We do need your encouragement to keep going and to know you are holding up our hands. Ann has had many health and financial needs, and we ask you to keep her and her husband in prayer as they seek ways to deal with what the Lord has before them. We are still awaiting the direction from the Lord on how to secure the property be has directed us to. The Vision has been enlarged, and we see now that he wants to minister to the Widows and Orphans, and prepare a place for them to rest.We are needing direction on presenting a proposal for the property, so please agree with us that the Lord will Write the Vision and make it plain, and that he will provide all that is needed in order to go in and Possess the Land, and dwell there in. God has given us his word on this, and we really need clear vision and direction. We need him to open a door that know man can shut, and to bless us with favor with the owner at this time. So pray for her heart to be opened to our cause, and that the Holy Spirit will move upon her and bring her his direction. Her name is Faye, she is a very lovely person and would like to see us obtain this property, but she needs to have a large amount of money to settle the matter. Also keep the Phone Ministry in your prayers. We have barely started this, and its hard at times with the different time zones, but the Annointing is really there, and its for sure that the Lord wants to open this up and do more, but the enemy is fighting us and holding us back, and we need a breakthrough on this part of the Ministry. Agree with us that no weapon formed against this Ministry will prosper, and that all lies of the devil will be exposed ahead of time, and we have the VICTORY in every area by the Promises of the Word of the Living God. Please continue to send your Dreams and Visions for the Words for Women Page. We love to get insight on how the Lord is moving in all of your lives. Pray for the endless needs on the Prayer Page, and for the Annointing we need to keep on keeping on. Thank you for your faithfulness, and for your much needed support. Love to you all in Jesus Holy Spirit, Terry & Ann

PROPHETIC WORD

Washing One Another's Feet

****************************

In this vision, I was in church. The man of God was behind his pulpit, preaching. As the man of God looked out over the congregation, he saw how healthy and content the people appeared; and he rejoiced in his spirit.

Then, the man of God looked down and saw the Lord at the bottom of the pulpit stairs. The Lord beckoned to him. Puzzled, the man of God stepped out from behind his pulpit, went down the stairs, and joined the Lord. The Lord pointed down at the floor. The man of God glanced down at the floor. There, on the floor, was a basin of water. A towel was neatly folded next to it.

Then the Lord pointed to a woman in the congregation. "Go and wash her feet," the Lord told the man of God.

The man of God, still puzzled, obeyed the Lord. He picked up the basin of water and the towel and walked over to the woman in his congregation. Every eye in the church was focused upon the man of God. The man of God leaned over to the woman and whispered to her, "May I wash your feet?"

The woman drew back in horror and shock from the man of God, and began to refuse to allow him to wash her feet.

"The Lord told me to," the man of God said to her. "But you have to allow me to."

The woman began to weep, and wordlessly nodded her head; granting the man of God permission to wash her feet. The man of God knelt down at the woman's feet, set the towel and basin of water down to the side, and began to remove the woman's shoes.

As the man of God began to remove the woman's shoes, he recoiled in shock and horror. The woman's feet were a mangled, bloody mass of sores. The man of God gently held the woman's feet in his hands. Weeping, he looked up at the woman.

"Why didn't you tell me?" he asked the woman.

"I was afraid," she replied. "I didn't feel that you really cared."

"I care," he replied.

Still weeping, the man of God began to wash this woman's feet. As he did, the Lord drew near to the man of God and to the woman. The Lord spoke to the man of God, and said, "This is my bride. I sent you to be her servant. Serve her well."

As the Lord spoke to the man of God, the man of God kept his head down, washing the woman's feet and weeping over her feet. "How many more are there like her, Lord?" the man of God asked.

"Very many," the Lord replied. "They will not come to you because of fear. You must go to them. I will lead you to them."

Interpretation

Within hours of having this vision, I began to get phone calls, e-mails, visits, from church people who were hurting, weeping. They were afraid to go to the man of God. They didn't think he truly cared for them. They didn't feel they could trust him. Some spoke of leaving the church. Others spoke of coming to church and smiling, smiling, smiling on the outside, but feeling like they were dying on the inside. But they were too afraid and embarrassed and ashamed to allow anyone to see their pain and misery.

As I prayed and sought the Lord about this vision, I felt He spoke these words to me. (I ask that any who read this, pray about it and discern within their spirit if they feel it is from the Lord or not; and to either accept it or reject it.)

"If My shepherds are to effectively minister to My children, to their hurts and wounds, they cannot do so solely >from the safety and distance of a pulpit. I am their example. I came down. I came down from heaven. I came down and removed My kingly robes garments, and took upon Myself the garments of a servant. I came down to your level, to where you are at. I knelt down before you, at your feet. Even when my efforts were resisted, I gently reached out and ministered to you anyway.

"Just as not everyone I ministered to responded with love and acceptance, so will it be with you at times. It was immediately after being ministered to that Judas went out and betrayed Me. Your efforts at ministering to others will not always be met with success. But I have called you to minister. I have called you to serve. You are My servants, to be the servants to My hurting children. You cannot touch people from a distance. As you minister to them, you also will get the blood >from their wounds upon you. It is draining to serve others.

"There are times when you may become weary in your mind and in your heart. Their wounds will become your wounds. As you minister to others, I will give unto you someone to minister in return unto you. As you strengthen others, and encourage and comfort others, even so will I supply the same strength and encouragement and comfort to you.

"Do not be fearful to get down where the hurting people are, and minister to them where they are at, as well as >from behind the pulpit or in the safety of your congregation.

"Go to My wounded and hurting children. Go to them, and wash their feet !!"

by Hollie l. Moody

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.
