The call of an intercessor...

What about Prayer Warriors and Intercessors? Is there adifference?

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 willingfor 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 ofintercession 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 churchhas known, Howells and his student intercessors in Wales were called upon by WinstonChurchill to intercede with God for the well-being of Britain during the Second World War. The biography byNorman Grubb, reveals that there were important spiritual Truths that Howells discovered, regarding theministry of the "Intercessor."

Preparation:

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

2. Early on in Howells' training, he was allowed tointercede on behalf of people whom he was personally able to minister to... but later, he was to intercede forspecific people whom he never was to meet. "There was a soul whom he had never met, whom he had no possiblemeans of influencing except by way of the Throne..." The Lord said, 'This will be the test case ofyour 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 theministry of the Holy Ghost, through whom spiritual warfare is waged... the army of the intercessors, filledwith the Holy Ghost with only one purpose in life.. to do that which God commands! To stand in the gap and bringthe Victory to reality. Hidden away, living by faith... standing on the promises of God... praying whatGod calls forth, by His Word.

The call to Intercession: And I sought for a man amongthem, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should notdestroy it, but I found none... Ezek. 22:30

Example of Intercession: On March 29, 1936 Rees Howells came to the Bible Collegehe had established in Wales and called forth in regard to Hitler's threat to Britain: "Prayer hasfailed. We are on slippery ground. Only intercession will avail. God is calling for intercessors -- men and womenwho will lay their lives on the altar to fight the devil, as really they would have to fight the enemy on thewestern front." It was made clear that a soldier at the front has no say in where he goes and what he does; hecannot take holidays or attend to the claims of the home and loved ones as other people can; and the Lordwas telling them that if, as really as that, some would become bondslaves to the Holy Spirit for everycreature, 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, "andI 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! Whowill lay their lives on the altar day after day... willing to die for the sake of the Truth! Praise God forthe 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 forthyour Intercessors for this generation!

God bless you all,

Linda

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 everythingthat would come into my life.. I question: how does it measure up to the standard of total and completedependence 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. Anthingthat 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 onlythis: Dependence Upon ME. Dependence upon Me is the only yoke you need. All other yokes are bondagefrom 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 ofbondage that you have been carrying. I am revealing these Yokes of Bondage... for apart from Me allis evil. Take up My Yoke for it is easy. Have Faith that I am all that you need.

THE SILVERSMITH

There was a group of women in a Bible study on thebook of Malachi. As they were studying chapter three, they came across verse three which says:"He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver." This verse puzzled the women and theywondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God.

One of the women offered to find out about the process ofrefining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible study. That week, the womancalled up a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work.

She didn't mention anything about the reason for herinterest in silver beyond her curiosity about the process of refining it. As she watched thesilversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that inrefining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames werehottest so as to burn away all the impurities.

The woman thought about God holding us in such a hotspot,then she thought again about the verse that says, "He sits as a refiner and purifierof silver." She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire thewhole time the silver was being refined.

The man answered that, yes, he not only had to sit thereholding the silver, but he had to keep his eye on it the entire time it was in the fire. For ifthe silver was left even a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed.

The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked thesilversmith, "How do you know when the silver is refined?" He smiled at her and answered,"Oh, that's the easy part -- when I see my image reflected in it." If today you are feelingthe heat of the fire, remember that God has His eye on you and will keep His hand on you and watchover you until He sees His image in you.

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.
