A Call to Life

Jim Grayson

I love you, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me. The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears. The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry. Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under his feet. He mounted the cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind. He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him--the dark rain clouds of the sky. Out of the brightness of his presence clouds advanced, with hailstones and bolts of lightning. The LORD thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded. He shot his arrows and scattered the enemies, great bolts of lightning and routed them. The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at your rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of breath from your nostrils. He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support. Psalm 18:1-18
God is Love.
1 John 4:16

There have been two storms poised on the horizon. Both have been prophesied. One has come to pass, striking with a fury that stunned us all, breaking our hearts over and over again. The second storm, that of the Latter Rain, is also poised, and will wash our tears away...if we let it. It is the move of God the prophets have been speaking of for years. It is the joy of God come to earth to work through His children to prepare the Bride for we are in the last days of this earth.

This storm will also strike with but little warning. First, there will be one drop of "rain", then two, then three, four, five, six...until the drops of blessings, miracles and healings are so many they are indistinguishable, and the Latter Rain, the last deluge of the Holy Spirit, sweet and powerful beyond imagination, will have truly begun. We only have a little time to prepare for this rain. Let us lay our hearts before the Lord and seek His face, for He is worthy to be sought of men. Let us lift our heart and voices and hands in praise to Him, for He is, indeed, worthy of our praise. Let us cast aside petty differences and get down to the heart of the matter, born from the Heart of the Father, which is to "Love one another, even I have I loved you," which means we are to love one another...even unto death. The business at hand is to prepare the Bride for the soon returning King and to harvest the fields which are more than white...yes, they are crying out to be harvested and if we do not do so, the harvest will die in the field, just like any unharvested crop. If we don't do it, it won't be done.

We must be sensitive at this time to the Holy Spirit, listening to His whisperings. We must clear our heads of the junk of organized religion and realize we serve a mighty, and intimate, God Who longs to bless His people. We must absolutely lean not to our own understanding because if we do, we'll miss God's will for our lives and for those around us. The Holy Spirit will tell us to do things which may make no sense in the natural but to HIM, it makes all the sense in the world. If we say, "God won't do that," or, "God wouldn't use me for that," you will be shutting the door to glory on this earth. The time has come for the will of God to be done on this earth as it is in Heaven. The Mandate of Jesus is still in effect and being restored in the Heavenlies, poised to bring tremendous blessings to those who believe:

As you go, preach this message: `The kingdom of heaven is near.' Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. Matthew 10:7,8

All of the Mandate will be fulfilled. The Gospel will be preached in great power like never before, with multitudes coming to know the Lord Jesus as their Savior. The hearts of men which have been hardened by decades of abuse and neglect, broken in pieces by the ways of man and sin will be restored and they will go forth, singing, praising God for the great work HE has done in their heart of hearts. The sick will be healed in unprecedented numbers, many by just hearing the Name of Jesus.

Entire buildings will have the glory of God fall on them and every person who is sick will suddenly find themselves healed. Missing eyes and limbs will be restored. Disfigurations, the handiwork of the enemy to mar the countenance of God's image, will instantly disappear. No sickness, condition or disease will stand up to the power that is to come. Everyone who desires to be healed will receive it. The days of teaching others to receive is over. Jesus simply spoke the Word and it happened. That's the way it will be.

The dead will be raised and the financial world and courts will be stunned because of it. Insurance companies will demand they receive back their death benefits, claiming fraud, yet fraud cannot be proven because death had come to these individuals. Many of those raised will have come back to speak of things of which this earth is unfamiliar, such as how we are to truly follow God with our whole hearts, doing His will, knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that He desires to bless His children. The organized church will truly be chafed by these occurrences but they will not be able to stop them, no matter how they rage. There will be some who will be martyred for their faith and the Lord will immediately raise them again, choosing that they not taste death until He returns.

The spiritual leprosy of our present day church, with all it's denominations, organization, traditions, rules and regulations will cease to exist in the mind of God. Only that which is from His heart will continue to flourish. There may be churches which will still hold on to the old but they will be whitened tombs, full of dead bones. There will be no life in them.

Those bound by the enemy will be set free form the snare of the fowler and their rejoicing shall be heard to the Heavenlies. There need be no methodology then. The word will be spoken and the enemy will depart, just as it did with Jesus.

All of this will be done without charge. If God's people want to bless someone, then the Word says they should receive it gratefully. Our goal will be to see God's will done on this earth, to spend and be spent for Him and His beloved children, without thought of gain. If He chooses to bless us beyond the joys of our joyful sacrifice, then it will be an extra blessing.

Our Lord's word to us is: "When the rain starts, when you feel It's refreshing in your spirit, listen to Me, to hear what I have to say to you...yes, you...and then do it. Do not question. Do not turn to one side or the other. Just do it. YOU speak the Word I whisper to you and I will back it up. Fear not that I will ask you to do things beyond you, for I WILL give you the gift of faith when the time comes to move mountains. There will be no need to ask, 'Is this God?' for you will know it is ME who speaks to you. Move with me. Flow with me. Don't worry about what tomorrow will bring. Just know I AM with you always. Together, we will prepare this Bride for Her marriage to Her King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Trust in me. I WILL bring all to pass of that which I have whispered to you already. That which has tarried is about to be delivered, and that which was stolen, is about to be restored."

You have my heart, beloved. It's beginning to rain...
Strength and Honor,
Hail the Lamb!

Seek How You Can Lend Faith and Hope At This Time

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 1PE 5:8-9

[11] in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes. 2 Co. 2

"I don't want you to fear even though the earth is moved and even though the mountains fall into the sea. I don't want you to fear the catastrophes that have happened. There is much fear around. The mountains have been shaken. The skies have had their share of smoke rising up to it. The earth is in a state of panic. I don't want you to be ignorant though, of the devices of the enemy. He plans many other onslaughts upon this continent. There are strategic plans that he has made. There are strategic cities that he has made plans thereof. There are strategic military bases that he has made plans thereof. Fort Bragg has been a target. There are military bases in other places as well. I say these things not for fear to arise within your hearts, but for preparations to be made. I say these things for your habitations to be fortified. I say these things so that you would not be caught unaware. You know that the enemy prowls around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. These things are happening like a roaring lion. But I tell you that his schemes have been found out. I tell you that my intercessors and prophets have been told about his schemes. Every secret plan will be found out. Every strategy will be foiled. His destruction is upon him. It is not to say that there will not be more killing of the innocent. It is not to say that there will not be more loses. There will be loses on both sides. War is not the way of my Spirit. But there is a battle to be fought. Remember that the real battle is not against flesh and blood. There are innocent lives to be saved within this battle. Seek and save the lost during this time. Seek how you can lend comfort at this time of fear. Seek how you can lend faith and hope at this time."

Stephen Hanson

Fight Or Flight!

Marsha Burns

You, my people, fall into these two categories at this time. Some of you have taken the stance that no matter what comes your way, you will stand and defend your position, your territory, your land. Others are trying to figure out how to escape, where to run to, how to hide. And, there will be opportunities for those whose decision it is to stand and fight to criticize and judge those who are ready to flee. But, I say to you, do not allow foolishness and pride to divide you. Refuse to judge others from your place of strength to their place of weakness. You are all My children, and your giftings and callings are unique and precious. I have called each of you to a position that pleases Me and enhances My kingdom. Look beyond outward appearance and discern My purposes.

This Is Not a Time To Retreat

Shelia Robertson

This is not a time to retreat in fear but to advance troops to a pivotal position. Now is the time of salvation. Press in to Me and see the salvation of the Lord. Don't shrink back in fear and unbelief. Bankers, lawyers and Doctors...hear me! It's time to wake up or remain asleep. Follow Me...let the dead bury their dead. Follow me and turn from your wickedness! Right the wrongs! Fear God. Let your yes be yes and no be no. Bring an acceptable sacrifice and offering or I will cut you off. I Am God and I will have no other Gods before Me! If you remain "lukewarm" I will spew you out of My mouth. Repent of your lackadaisical attitude saying "the Lord delays His return"...."eat drink and be merry"...for I Am....and there is no other God but Me!

I know your deeds, that you are neither hot or cold. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are neither hot nor cold---I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing. But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy of me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes so you can see. Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline, so be earnest, and repent. Revelation 3:15

Where Are You?

By Olivia Long

But the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, Where are you? Gen. 3:9 O Lord, you have searched me, thoroughly and have known me. You know my downsitting and my uprising. You understand my thought afar off. You sift and search out my path and my lying down, and You are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue, still unuttered, but, behold, O Lord. You know it altogether." Ps 139:1-4 "Therefore, we do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless, exhausted and wearied out through fear.) Though our outer man is progressively decaying and wasting away, yet our inner self is being progressively renewed day after day. For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly, preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory (beyond) all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease! Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but the things that are unseen, for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting. II Cor 4:16-18

My Beloved, many of you are beset on all sides by unseemingly endless troubles and struggles. You see the facts, and the facts say that your body is dying. The facts say that you are about to be put out in the street due to financial problems. The facts say that you are perplexed on every side. You say where can you find Me in the midst of your situation and you wonder where is your hope? The age old question arises from your lips - "Where are You, God?" Where am I? I have been with you all along. But the question is NOT where am I, but "Where are you?" You seek Me for help, but often, you don't find Me. Some of you have been disappointed that your prayers were not answered and you ask "Where are you, God?" But the whole time, it is the I AM who is asking you, "WHERE ARE YOU?" When Adam and Eve sinned, I "IMMEDIATELY" came to seek out My lost ones. I was calling to Adam, "Where are you?" My voice was full of mercy and grace and love. I was seeking Adam, but he should have been seeking ME. He fell and should have been crying out to his God, "Where are you?" Beloved, I left heaven to seek My fallen ones, not to elimate them, but to provide an escape for their sin. I AM a God of grace, mercy and love to ALL men. I am searching right now for thousands and thousands of Adams hiding from Me. Again, I ask "Where are you?"

Many question your relationship with Me, questions such as "Where am I? Who am I? Where am I going?" Again I ask you my question of where are you, where are you in "our" relationship? So many of you, don't know what to do next, you have tried it all, but you are at the end of your rope. I ask you, are you seeking "ME" first and "MY" Kingdom and "MY" Righteousness or are you so concerned with your own affairs, that you "are not" reaching out to others. Are you asking your questions in the sight of man or in the sight of your Almighty God? I ask you now, as I asked Adam, "where are you?" Are you in communion with man or in communion with Me? If your answer lies with man, than you are out of communion with Me. Do you want to see My blessings? Then, stop looking to man, going to them with your problems and seek me and be in communion with Me. When I asked Adam and Eve where are you, they were the 'only' people there and they were hiding, and yet I sought them! Now, the world is full of people, yet NO-ONE can hide from Me! I know everything about you. Before you say one word, I know it. Before you have one thought, I know it. I know you better than you know yourself and I know where you are!

Paul was in prison, very sick, but writing to the church in Corinth who was in the midst of their own troubles. Paul was surrounded by hopelessness, but he spoke of hope! Instead of dwelling on his circumstances, which were most dire indeed, he reached out to others. You have troubles pressing in from every side, but you STILL are NOT crushed and broken. You are perplexed but haven't given up and quit. You have gotten knocked down, and you somehow wondered how, but you got back up! Troubles all around you, and even though you ask the question of Where are You, God ... yet you trust and have faith in ME and I say to you, that YOUR SPIRIT WILL ONLY GET STRONGER! ALL tragedy, ALL suffering, ALL tribulations and ALL tests, WILL be replaced with MY GLORY and that will last you an eternity. My Beloved, look beyond your troubles to the joys that I have promised.

I ask you, can you give a reason for the hope within you? Are you "willing to take your stand for Jesus?" Can you say that yes, you are a Christian, and that your life IS corresponding with your words? If you were to die tomorrow, are you certain that you would be saved, or would the thought be so horrendous to you as you think over what you have done? Where are you IN MY SIGHT, not in the sight of man. Do you have a 'loyal' heart for your Lord and Savior? Are people truly seeing My Son in you? My children, you are the light of the world, therefore, are you a "living epistle?" If you are truly for Me, then come "out of the world" for you CANNOT SERVE TWO MASTERS! If I should appear to you right now, where you are, and ask you the question that I asked Adam, what would be your answer?

It's time, My Beloved ones, it's time for My slumbering ones to awake! Truly I ask you, where are your concerns? Are they on your circumstances, or are they on MY concerns? What has happened to the great commission that I have commanded of you? Are you too concerned about your own problems then to win souls? Look now, look back over your life. It was as yesterday, wasn't it, that you began your journey? My children, time -PRECIOUS TIME - is slipping away. Is your heart growing harder? Again I ask you, "Where are you?" How much time remains, you do not know. Is it far away, or very close? Are you WITH ME or against Me? Have you promised that you would serve Me? Have you said "Here Am I, Send me!" Then the question is NOT, "Where are you God? But "WHERE ARE YOU?" If you are looking for Me, don't give up!!! KEEP PRAYING, KEEP READING MY WORD, KEEP REACHING OUT TO OTHERS, KEEP BELIEVING IN MY PROMISES ...... AND SOON, I WILL FIND YOU!!!!

OK To Pray In Our Schools?

Shelleymae Bartlett


What hope have we left for our children?
Has America gone blind?
Can she not see that the very thing we have fought and died for:
OUR FREEDOM, has become one of the things that has caused our hearts not to see?
Freedom of speech?
Has this not also been something that has caused our ears not to hear, by trusting in and relying on and in our own strengths and what we, call assurance?
Instead of trusting in and relying on our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST WHO IS THE TRUE FOUNDATION and WHO IS THE FULL ASSURANCE in which we can stand, And WHO IS which this great country was founded on to begin with.
Oh America...
Where are and what hope have you left for our children that you would take away from them the right to be free?
By taking away their GOD-GIVEN rights to PRAY and taking GOD out of almost everything we ever fought for.
We have gone to the extreme opposite of all we ever stood for.
America has sold her children for the "all-mighty dollar" and sold them into darkness through lies that she accepted and was blinded by.
You have eyes to see and see not. You have ears to hear but hear not.
For you are a rebellious house.
Oh America...
Pride cometh before a fall.
I plead with you now oh America, that the only falling that you do is that you would fall on your knees, and humbly PRAY and turn from the darkness of your own understanding and self-assurance to walk and live in THE TRUTH and THE LIGHT of GODS WORD !!! ( John 1= JESUS)
We were called to Freedom...
And it is HE who has set us FREE!
We have been called and chosen to bind up the broken hearted and set the captives free.


NOW that the President has called us to prayer.....

NOW that Congress has called us to prayer.....

NOW that our Governor has called us to prayer....
NOW that the media and most other branches of
our American society have called us to prayer.....

AND NOW that our churches are assembling in special prayer....

"Honorable" Justices of the Supreme Court, I have only one
question......Would it be okay to pray in our schools........??

Humbly Submitted In Love,

Prepare the Way

George G. Delo

For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. (Romans 8:3,4).

Paul now explains why we must be set free from the law of sin and death: the law cannot produce righteousness in us. It cannot produce obedience. He's talking about a practical righteousness here how we walk or live in this life. This cannot be overemphasized. These four chapters of Romans (5,6,7,8) are all dealing with our practical lifestyle. These chapters are all based on Paul's exhortation to us: "What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?" (Romans 6:1,2). Whereas the church has used grace as a license to sin, Paul proclaims grace as the power over sin. The church has so emphasized positional righteousness in Christ that we have denied the possibility of practical righteousness settling instead for a life of compromise and sin.

The law cannot produce righteousness or obedience because it is weak through the flesh. He's talking about the old man who is unable to submit to the law of God. "Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be" (Romans 8:7). The weakness of the law is the Adamic nature. God's purpose is to produce His righteousness in us in a practical way that can become our witness of Christ in us. Righteousness is the scepter of God's kingdom. It is the foundation of our peace and the source of God's presence and anointing. It is only through the practical righteousness of Christ in us that we can reveal the fullness of God's glory on this earth.

For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory (2 Corinthians 3:9).

John tells us that practical righteousness is the defining characteristic of our salvation:

If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him (1 John 2:29)

Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous (1 John 3:7)

In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother (1 John 3:10).

John makes it pretty clear that it is the practical righteousness of God that brings the fulfillment of our salvation. We cannot settle for positional righteousness and continue on in our ways of sin and rebellion. This is unacceptable to God. When we walk in sin, rather than show forth the goodness of God and His kingdom that leads others to repentance, we show forth the kingdom of darkness which keeps people in bondage.

A righteous man who falters before the wicked Is like a murky spring and a polluted well (Proverbs 25:26).

Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, But such as keep the law contend with them (Proverbs 28:4).

Many Christians get very nervous when we begin talking about practical righteousness because of their belief that we cannot be delivered from sin. This gives them justification to continue in their ways of sin relying on their position in Christ to keep them safe. But the truth of the matter is that God has made a way to make us practically righteous and that is what Paul is declaring to us here in Romans.

Notice what the scripture says: "For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin." The law could not produce righteousness in us because of the flesh. So God sent His Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to do what the law could not do produce practical righteousness in His people. How did He do it? By condemning sin in the flesh. The word condemn means to depose from a place of authority or to take away one's power. In other words, the law could only pronounce judgment and bring penalty for sin but it could not dethrone sin. Jesus, through His death on the cross, actually dethroned sin thus making the flesh ineffective for sin no longer to be an instrument of sin. How did He do it? By crucifying Adam on the cross of Calvary.

Remember, it is the body of flesh that makes the law weak for producing righteousness. By doing away with the body of flesh, we remove the source of sin's power thus setting us free for righteousness. This is why Paul proclaimed: "O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God; through Jesus Christ our Lord!" (Romans 7:24,25). When Jesus condemned sin in the flesh, He set us free from the law of sin and death and made us alive through the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. Now we no longer need to serve sin through the flesh but now we can serve God by His Spirit. In so doing we fulfill the righteous requirement of the law. In other words, we obey God. How ? By walking free from the flesh and walking according to the Spirit. This is the practical righteousness John is talking about in the verses given previously. We are righteous because we practice righteousness. What a novel idea! This is supposed to be the essential element of Christianity, the mark of the true Christian life. This is supposed to be common possession of all Christians. This is what Jesus died for to destroy the power of sin and have a people of His own who walk and live in righteousness.

Spirit led living is not meant for the occasional demonstration of gifts or ecstatic moments of glory but an every day, moment by moment leading of God's Holy Spirit orchestrating His glory through our every motivation, action, and feeling. It is living unto God in unbroken fellowship and communion, to do His will and reveal His nature and character on this earth that others would see God in us. It is being formed into the image of Christ to become vessels of God's redemptive purposes as we too are anointed with the Holy Spirit and power to do good for God's kingdom purposes. The Old Covenant made provision for a partial, intermittent, and occasional manifestation of God's Spirit. But under the New Covenant we are made vessels for the full, constant, and pervading presence of God revealing His glory throughout the earth. This is the only way to fulfill God's mandate to be His witnesses and to make disciples of all nations we must fulfill all righteousness by being set free from sin and flesh to walk in the Spirit of God in absolute surrender to His dictates as he glorifies Jesus Christ.

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God (Ezekiel 36:26-28)

The new heart that God gives us is the new man that is created in righteousness and holiness, a heart after God, led by His Spirit to obey Him so that we can possess the promise of God eternal life. Being set free from sin and being made alive unto God, brings us into intimate fellowship with God in a child-parent relationship of love, nurturing, and protection.

It is also the only way we can please God and serve Him acceptably in undefiled ministry.

That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified (Isaiah 61:3).

The Gentiles shall see your righteousness, And all kings your glory. You shall be called by a new name, Which the mouth of the LORD will name (Isaiah 62:2).

A tree of righteousness is a tree that bears fruits of righteousness. This is how we glorify God. When the lost see the righteousness of Christ in us, lifted up in us, they will be drawn to the brightness of His glory.

Everything God does in us is accomplished as we sincerely and whole heartedly seek Him. As we yield our will to His, surrender our desires for His desires, abandon ourselves to His purpose, we can obtain the promise of deliverance and resurrection by faith in the atoning work of Christ.

Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you (Hosea 10:12).

Vision Of Idols Falling

by Lisa Dean

The Vision:

I had been prayed for and I was in the spirit on the floor at church, and this is what I was shown.

I was taken to a place where I was shown pillars. On top of each pillar was an idol. These were the idols of America. People were down below lifting up their hands, and worshipping around each of these pillars.

Suddenly the idols and the pillars began to fall. As the idols were knocked down, the people under them who were worshipping the idols were crushed by them. The people were crushed by the very thing they worshipped.

If people ran away from the idols, they were not hurt by their falling. The first one was mammon. Once the first one began to fall, it caused the others to fall as well, like a domino effect.


America has been worshipping idols in her heart. There would be a time when God allowed the idols to be destroyed from people's hearts in America. The idols were being judged, NOT the people.

The people were called away from the idols so that they would not be crushed at their falling. Only the people who refused to abandon the idols in their hearts were crushed by them.

The message:

Come out from her (system or room full of idols) and be saved.

Unity Precedes Blessing

A. W. Tozer

Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. --Acts 4:32-33

...unity of mind on the part of the people of God precedes the blessing. I have often heard people pray, "Oh Lord, send the Holy Spirit that we may become a united people." That is all right except it is precisely backwards. The Holy Spirit comes because we are a united people; He does not come to make us a united people. Our prayer should be more like, "Lord, help us to get united in order that the blessing might flow and there might be an outpouring of oil and dew and life." That's the way we should pray....

This teaches us that unity is necessary to the outpouring of the Spirit of God. If you have 120 volts of electricity coming into your house but you have broken wiring, you may turn the switch, but nothing works-no lights come on, the stove doesn't warm, your radio doesn't turn on. Why? Because you have broken wiring. The power is ready to do its work with all the appliances in your home, but where there is broken wiring, you have no power. Unity is necessary among the children of God if we are going to know the flow of power. Success and the Christian, 86-87.

"Lord, help us to get united in order that the blessing might flow and there might be an outpouring of oil and dew and life. Amen."
