My Centrifuge Is Turned On

Ras Robinson

This is a time of separation, not from each other but from all the influences within and about you that compete with my purity and sanctification of your soul. You are my vessel of honor in purity. Through you I can serve my very finest to my people. You are not fashioned as an ordinary instrument that some might see as only worth of being washed occasionally. Instead, you are like the finest of china. Being dirty and contaminated is not becoming to you nor is it consistent with either how I see you or the way I want you to see yourself. Get accustomed to the centrifuge; let it be your friend. And when the spinning is taking place, submit to it quickly and let me remove the dirt and impurities that will hinder your service for me. You are called to a very specific purpose and gifted by me to be successful in that destiny. But it is necessary on a regular basis to turn on the centrifuge in your life so that you can again return to the beauty and purity for which you are designed. This season will soon pass when further sanctification of your soul is complete. The centrifuge is turned on.

2 Corinthians 6:17 "Therefore, come out from their midst and be SEPARATE," says the Lord. "And do not touch what is unclean; And I will welcome you. [18] "And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me," Says the Lord Almighty.

Manufactured Ministry

by Pastor Mark Sadler

This month I am wanting to write a heart-directed word to the shepherds of the flocks of the land. As a pastor myself of a local congregation, I must recognize what the Lord IS and IS NOT saying. This word is not of judgementalism, neither is it a word of comfort. But an awareness of harvesting that the Lord desires to come forth.

We as pastors in this day, will not be able to shepherd the sheep, amongst our own abilities. It will take the cooperative anointings of the Apostle, Prophet, and Intercessors, within our church, community and cities, to help build the habitation of his presence.

We as pastors must come to embrace what the Lord has been desiring to form around us for our safety, and assistance.

Now, I could speak from the platform of 1st Corinthians chapter 12, but I want to dive a little deeper within the advancing the kingdom in power. I want to perhaps raise the window blinds, and open the closet doors, as to peer within.

Psalms 145:13 says Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And Your dominion endures throughout all generations. Daniel 4: 3 How great are His signs, And how mighty His wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And His dominion is from generation to generation.

Whenever God establishes His Kingdom, it stands forever. Whenever God lays righteous kingdom foundations, they remain firm, stable, everlasting. The foundation of God that you desire to build upon, must be built by pure motives, cooperative anointings, and tempered instruments.

Its not the foundations poured by God that makes a building or habitation unstable, Its what men allow and DON'T allow to be built upon that foundation, that causes its advancement, or its collapse. Its also the foundations laid by man, born by fleshly blueprints, designed by false or unpractical builders, that bring about the fall of the house.

Manufactured Ministry : Form, Art, and Illusion:

Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? 3 Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock. 4 The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them. 5 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered Ezekiel 34:2

10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. 11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. 12 Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant. Isaiah 56:10-12

We as ministers, are to lead the sheep out of dry parched places, out of wilderness areas, where beasts seek to devour, and bring them to a place of peaceful waters, and plenty. But we cannot do it by manufactured anointings, superficial programs, or deceptions. We are to provide a environment, conducive to his presence, glory, image, and standard.

But we cannot do it by ourselves, a one-man show peddling a "miracle" elixir to a diseased nation. We must have the Apostles and Prophets within our midst illuminating darkness, and expelling it at the root. They are to assist us in removing "growth restricting" diseases , so that the outcome is a healthy, vibrant, and advancing church. We desperately need the Intercessors, crying out for cultivation processes of the land.

If we as pastors don't align ourselves by the Spirit, to the company of these deposits within the body of Christ, they "the sheep", will become fragmented, and will be a risk factor within the environment in which they graze. We need the apostolic laboring among us. We need the prophetic speaking within us. Especially, in this hour. We need to hear what is being spoken to and through the intercessors. Right Now!

I have come to an understanding of this. If we are going to see the Kingdom of God advance with power, purpose, and vibrance, to the inhabitants of the earth, then we will need to surround ourselves with the Apostles, Prophets, and Intercessors. We have to respond to them with all haste to bring about the stability, vision, and birthing, of that which is to come.

Let's Take Heed and be Blessed!

Let It Be!

Debra Westbrook

Then Mary said, "Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word. And the angel departed from her. Luke 1:38

When I awoke this morning, I sensed such an incredible stirring within my spirit that this was a day of divine release from the Lord. In fact, in my prayer time, I entered into a time of travail and intercession before the Lord. God immediately drew me to this verse above.

The overshadowing of the Spirit of God implanted a seed of prophetic destiny and purpose in Mary's womb. Her response to the revelation that she would birth the Messiah was simple - a response of submission to the Most High God. "Let it be to me according to your word."

The baby grew within her; nurtured, sustained and protected by the hand of God. Through it all her response of submission and humility stayed the same. "Let it be to me according to your word." God's timing is perfect and His ways are magnificent and in His ordained timing, a Son was born.

Like Mary, many of God's people have been overshadowed by the Spirit of God, implanted with seeds of destiny and purpose. A season of intense preparation was walked through as this seed grew within us. We are giving birth, not to anything in the flesh that would inhibit God's glory but to an increasing revelation of Jesus Christ. We hold within ourselves a growing and enlarging revelation of Christ in us, the hope of glory. This seed has grown and expanded over time, much like a women about to give birth. An exploding revelation of Jesus Christ is about ready to be birthed through a company of prophets that have allowed the times of testing, trial, and tribulation to bring them into submission to the Father by putting aside all hidden agendas, pride, and reputation to simply respond, "Let it be to me according to your word."

In times of trial, God was looking for our heart to respond, "Let it be to me according to your word." Even through times of great pain, with clenched teeth, He waited for us to respond "Let it be to me according to your word." The revelation, much like a baby, expanded within us so that Christ Jesus is formed within us so that when we march forth as this prophetic army, we shall have a corporate spirit of prophecy sounding forth in power because the testimony of Jesus has been formed and enlarged within our being. The time is now. The time is at hand. Push!

The birth of the revelation of the beauty and the majesty sounding forth through a company of prophets will call the church back to repentance first, enabling their vision to be made clear to as to see His face, the simplicity of Christ Jesus. It is all about Him. Jesus and nothing else.

So a company of prophets have been reborn, if I may say it that way, into an incredible focus on their Lord. He is the center of their lives.

The Lord would say, "A season of formation will bring forth a revelatory proclamation!

Kingdom Finances

Bill Burns

It has been prophesied that a transfer of wealth from the world to the church would take place. I had prayed and asked the Lord why we have not seen this transference take place yet. On Sunday during the worship service the Lord spoke to me about kingdom finances, and this is what He said:

"If I had given you the promised finances before you received the power of Pentecost, you would have not been prepared to receive the essence of the power that I am about to give you. I say, stop worrying about money, and start seeking to prepare yourselves to receive the fullness of the power of Pentecost.

"The finances that you require will come, but you must first receive the fullness of the power of the kingdom. You must first be able to say with Peter, 'Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have I give unto you.' When you see Me in the power of My kingdom you will be endued with power from on high, and then you can say, 'Such as I have.' First, you must receive that which will set you free, that which will heal you, that which will reveal the kingdom to you so you can know the way in which you should go. And, then I will put the finances in your hand, and the kingdom shall be manifest in the earth and flourish in the cities of refuge and the places that I have designed by My own will."

We must understand that God's plans are perfect, and He establishes all things in His perfect order. So, first His power must be realized in the church, and we must know what we have within and be able to demonstrate His power in the world before He will fund our efforts. God will not fund our own efforts apart from His power. He will not fund something that is going to shipwreck.

If we first receive the fullness of the Spirit, then we will not be distracted and hindered by money because it will be secondary to that which we have within us, the greater gift of His presence and His power, which indwells us and keeps us in the ways of His kingdom. Then, all things will take place according to His word. We must come into the fullness of His power, and then all that we need physically and financially will come to pass. These are the days of the restoration of all things. Therefore, let us not grow weary, but let us press towards the mark of the high calling so that we may receive all that the Master has for us. Amen!

Break Out

Kristin Reeg

I have come that you might know Me. I walked this earth not just to give you a model but to show how much I care. I have put My spirit within you to go and tell others that I care.

Break out of the boxes you have put yourselves in. Break out of the box you have put Me in. Look beyond the mountains in front of you. I have given you faith and authority to say to this mountain move and it shall be moved. Do not let any natural thing be a limitation to you for I say I am a God who has long arms. My arms are not too short to provide nor are my ears deaf to hear your prayers. For My eyes have seen the wickedness that prevails around you, but I tell you I will be glorified. I will be glorified in your life. I will be glorified in your work. I will be glorified. Evil will run from My glory, and I will allow My glory to fall upon you. You are My vessels to be used for My glory.

Seek Me in the midst of your trials and you will see My glory.

Pressing on and pressing in,

An Apostle's Resume

Bryan Hupperts

Hi, SheepTrax!

You can't swing a dead cat these days without hitting someone claiming to be an apostle. There were, I believe, only 23 apostles listed or mentioned in the New Testament and, while I believe the gifts of the Spirit and the 5 fold offices listed in Ephesians chapter 4 are as needful today as they were in the early days of the church, I cautiously question the sudden emergence of so many thousands of apostles.

It is debated ad nauseaum what the marks of an apostle are: Jesus personally called them, they have seen the risen Lord with their own eyes, they (with prophets) lay the foundations of the church. I maintain that the true marks of an apostle are on his back and if they're not, one day they will be. Apostleship is a call to sacrifice and suffering for the glory of God.

Having established my own view on this, I thought it wise to pen the resume of an apostle. With so many competitive voices clamoring, making so many claims, we need a standard lest we be deceived.

#################

SEEKING EMPLOYMENT: Apostle to the nations, foundation of the church, divine governmental voice on earth.

WORK EXPERIENCE: I was personally called by Jesus to be his witness to the uttermost parts of the earth. Expert in Ministry Administration with emphasis in Finance. Successful fundraiser. Cast out devils, healed the sick, preached the Kingdom of God. Personally negotiated with hostile ministry forces for the purchase of land. Nearly 3 years of discipleship training with ministry practicum: did not complete my degree nor attend my graduation due to personal issues.

INTRAPERSONAL SKILLS: I excel in the ability to understand, and sympathize with, opponents. My negotiation skills are remarkable in multi-class struggles. I am comfortable working with High Church members as well as the laity. I can clearly see both sides of any issue.

HONORS: Worked miracles, personal friendship with the Savior of humanity, minored in geopolitical struggles of oppressed minority classes. I have a global reputation and have become a household name in the church world.

BENEFITS PACKAGE REQUIREMENT: Payment in cash only, thanks.

REFERENCES: None provided. Who would dare question me?

CONTACT: HeyJudas666@hotmail.com for further information.

Did you run a reference check on this apostle? Try these titles in the Scripture to resolve his identity:

The Thief
Son of Perdition
One possessed by the devil
Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Him.

Did I mention the Scripture also says, in Acts 1:25, that Judas' Apostleship was stripped from him and given to another?

With so many voices making so many claims, perhaps it would be wise to read between the lines. The hallmark of the Last Days is Deception. There are many ministry resumes floating about that don't tell the entire story, and, just because you were personally called by Jesus, it doesn't necessarily mean you were finally chosen in the final cut. Indeed, many are called, but few are chosen.

The Scriptures admonished us in 2 Corinthians 13:12, "Greet one another with a holy kiss." As illustrated in the case of Judas, some kisses are less holy than others. The watermark of an apostle is self-sacrificing service for the glory of God. Anything else is rooted in deception.

The next time the media trumpets sound hailing the arrival of apostle so and so, be wise before buying. It could very well be true and, if so, the Kingdom of God will surely advance! May this exhortation from the lips of Jesus be spoken of the Last Days church. Revelation 2:2, "I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars."

This Means War

Cyndee Pillow

This is the hour of battle. We have been told that the Trumpet has sounded, and it is time to engage in hand to hand combat with the enemy. This means there will be confrontations eye to eye with death. This is a battle between Life and Death and this is your hour of victory. This is the battle between the Christ we serve and the antichrist. This is the battle between the Saints and the enemies of their salvation.

Many do not recognize that they are in a war even now. They have taken their personal conflicts and fires as only that and no more. However, the Lord says, "This is the battle that is set before YOU." You are engaging in face to face combat, one on one. Your neighbor is fighting his own battle, with a different opponent in appearance, possibly, but ALL are enemies of the Lord that we serve.

Picture a battle field full of God's people, all armed with swords. Their are forces and powers of darkness that have singled out each one. Each has an enemy assigned to them to bring them to death. All fight side by side, either in the Lord's army or the enemy's army. If God's people, one by one, in the Lord's army, drops their swords and runs, soon their would be defeat and victory would be lost.

Therefore, Your battle, is CORPORATE, If it concerns a brother or sister, it should concern you. If one becomes weak, you that are strong bare them up, lest they fall and not rise. We are a body, and if one in the body suffers, we all suffer. "A threefold cord is not easily broken." Their is STRENGTH in LOVE. "Love thy neighbor as thyself." This will benefit the body as a whole and will be used as a means to knit you together in oneness in God.

A WORD FROM THE LORD:

"Unity is surely on the brink of appearing upon my people as they Unify in battle," says the Lord.
"You have thought it would come another way, but I say this is my choosing. I have a purpose for all I do, and in the battle each one of you face, seemingly alone, I say it is a unifying process taking place. This will bring about my body in oneness of purpose, which must be, to preserve the Lord's name in righteousness and in truth. Let love go before you, and written across your foreheads with blood from the Lamb. Cause your flesh to bow and serve me with your heart and not your lustful desires. I am with you and I HAVE gone before you. Victory is mine, but YOU determine how quickly the war will be over through your faith. This will preserve you from all darts the enemy hurls towards you. No war is easily won, and their is labor in it. However, in your victory, you will have come into a place you have not known, but have desired to be. Guard yourselves as Watchmen. Be ever on guard, watchful and wakeful. Be calm, collected in Spirit, and most of all, take heed not to be led to forsake the Lord you do serve. Watch over each other, and know your sacrifices of love will not go without reward. Sew and in the morning you will also reap. Who has sewn in the past and reaped the next day? I say, it will be a quick harvest on your labors in this hour. So be strong and do not fall prey. Remember I am with you even until the end of the ages."

Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil." Proverbs 4: 25-27

God's Timing / An Essential (For Being In His Will)

Clay Sikes

Trust My spirit to lead you properly both to people and circumstances that will produce fruit in your life. My time (timing) is your strategy for victory - sense it, know it, operate in it.

When you move out of my time you will feel disjointed and uncomfortable. Genuine peace will always precede My order and timing concerning the issues of your life.

To move ahead of my timing will produce disaster and chaos. The fruit of patience must be manifested in your life in order to operate in my timing. Recognize that anxiousness for anything is not from Me.

As with my children in the desert, who moved by the cloud during the day and the fire at night, ONLY MOVE AS MY SPIRIT DIRECTS. Unify your body, soul, and spirit in order that my spirit CAN direct you. Recognize that impatience is the forerunner to disobedience and disobedience negates God's best.

TAKE TIME TO LISTEN...

I am faithful - worthy to be trusted. Deliverance is in your trust for Me. Casting your care allows Me to produce the strategy for victory to you. Just as I cannot work through anxiety and fear, I am drawn to faith and courage. My hand of deliverance is drawn to your faith just as it is lifted through your anxiety.

Recognize and acknowledge Me in all you do and I will direct your paths. Spend time early with Me when I can be found and I will both meet you and speak directionally to you. When you meet with Me early, you are on the cutting edge of what I am doing in your life and those I have entrusted to you.

Guard your heart because out of it come the issues of life. Allow Me, by rising early to meet Me, to make spiritual deposits into your heart that will not come back void but will prosper where they are sent.

My words grafted into your heart will produce spiritual energy and life. You must listen in order to hear - take time early to listen.

Unity In Spirit and Truth

Debbie Cossu

Vision:

There was a banqueting table set and waiting for the love feast the Lord had prepared for His people. The name of this celebration was called, "The Bonds of Peace".

It was a strange sight as I looked at what was happening as each one arrived. Some were shocked at the one they were assigned to sit beside, and decided to move somewhere else.

There were many empty chairs as those invited had come to similar events before and always went home wounded from things that were said, or still left unspoken from previous meals together.

Some who had come were actually sitting on the floor looking for crumbs from old feasts they were happy with and did not want this new thing being offered.

Those who had sat where assigned were stiff and reserved in their manners, many actually having their seats pushed away from the table so they could leave whenever they wanted.

There was a distinct awareness of alienation even among those who had known each other for a long time....

No one was really even hungry....

In walks the Lord with another platter to set before us. Suddenly everyone is starving and gathers around Him, standing close together to get near to Him.

With a smile He spoke a welcome that will long be remembered...

Word:

"I love you. I see the hunger you have grown accustomed to. I feel the emptiness in the loss of fellowship you have cooperated with. Come and sit down together with Me.

Peace to you, My own peace I breathe on you. For too long you have attempted to make peace with one another, and been willing to go without it when you could not.

Today I speak peace into each heart to calm and to cleanse, to equip and to enable you to live in peace with each other as you draw near to Me.

Get up off the floor, I have fresh bread for you to eat.

Pull your chairs up close, for we shall feast together for a long time.

The one I placed you beside is the one who has continued to pray for you when you shut your heart to them. As you return to your first love, as you cry out to be with Me, you shall gain My heart for each other.

Do not be robbed of My gift of fellowship that will sustain you on the journey that awaits your response here.

Where there is unity My commanded blessing flows. Where there is unity, The anointing destroys the yoke. False bondage has kept you from each other, and allowed alienation that did not come from Me.

Cords of love are not chains of bondage, but rather a life line to support and hold you together as you walk in My ways. Unity in Spirit and Truth has been set before you this day, a banquet of love and mercy to fill your heart with My peace, will you come and dine together with Me?

The invitation is for all who can hear, so listen well.

Fear Me, not one another, then we shall feast together at this table prepared in Spirit and in Truth for all.

For the Church - Structures

David Howe

Today (8th of May 2001 ) Had a Vision of Flames of Fire Burning up the structures made of man.

For the structures of are man made up of wood. This wood was once living trees, But man has cut them down and brought death to what was alive.

Living trees bring forth fruit, The structures of man do not.

Living trees are open to the wind, The structures of man are not. They keep the wind out. For man likes his order and comfort zones for he does not like challenge and change.

The only way the wind can get into these structures is through cracks which proves that which is made of man is not perfect.

The Glory of the Lord cannot be contained in these structures made of man for they are sinful, Fall short of Gods plan.

Anything made of man is sinful for he is not perfect. Only that which the Lord makes is perfect.

For the Lord made His church perfect but man in his pride thought he could do better and changed things to his ways.

If we look at what man has done to God's creation we can see the same things happening in the natural.

Man cutting down forests for his own profit, Pouring concrete onto once green fields. Polluting once pure rivers, Poisoning the very air he breathes.

In many places around the world man introduced plants and animals into places that they should not be with the result that the natural plants and animals of that region have been destroyed, New diseases coming about because of this. Whole areas turned from grasslands and forests in deserts, All dead and dry.

So often we import things from other places thinking it's the way to go. Bringing in many teachers to tell them what their ears want to hear.

Many people have been hurt and pushed down by this, Many ministries killed at birth, Killed by those who feel threatened and want to control.

The same thing has happened time and time in the church throughout the centuries. The doctrine of wolves and weeds being introduced into the church turning it dead and dry in many places.

But no longer, I say, for the last day is here.

I will burn up all that is of man in my church. Yes even the things that you think are alright and perfect.

I will burn up all the wood, Hay and stubble in my body with unquenchable Fire. For the Glory shall burn up all that is not of Lord within My church.

Can darkness and light have fellowship? Can sin and Holiness sit together? Can demons stand in the presence of Christ? Can the devil sit with the Lord, Sit at the right hand of the father?

For you are temple of the Holy Spirit fashioned by my hands, A dwelling place for the Lord upon the earth.

The Glory of My Son will be manifest through you upon the earth, The Glory of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.

Yes My Glory will be in you and around you like the air is in you and all around you, For in the day to come you will breathe My Glory says the Lord.

For no longer will anyone rule in my church as the gentiles do, for their folly shall be plain for all to see, Plain before their eyes.

To these I say Come, Repent, I say unto you, for I want none to perish but all to be restored, Want none to be burned in the coming fire For I AM a merciful God.

For as my Word says, that mercy will triumph over judgment.

For if my people repent, Pray and turn from their wicked ways then I will heal their lands, Will heal them, For I will pour in the oil and wine.

For it is My will that my people work as a team, Some as apostles and prophets, Some as pastors, Teachers and Evangelists, Work together with all the gifts of my Spirit that I have given them. All given for the building up of my body into perfection, Into my Glory.

Yes, all wood, hay and stubble will be burned up. Only gold, Diamonds and my Precious Living Stones will remain to shine with My Glory.

Those that have built their houses on the sandy soil of doctrines made of man will fall. But those who have built upon the rock of my Word, Built upon the rock of my Son shall stand in the coming day, says the says the Lord.

So examine yourselves by my Word - Yes test your work this day before the fire comes.

For if your house is made up of wood, Hay and stubble it shall be burned up by fire for all to see - Yes you will escape through the flames but shall suffer much loss and shall loose your reward.

But those who have built with gold, diamonds and My Precious Living Stones, their work will withstand the fire and he shall receive his reward according the work he has done for my Glory says the Lord.
