The Under-Current Move of God

Ron McGatlin

Just as there are rivers of current in the natural oceans there are undercurrents of spiritual movement in the vast ocean of churches and ministries. The surface of the ocean is the highly visible part of the churches and ministries.

The surface rarely experiences times of placid waters and is most often covered with gentle waves of activities as the breeze interacts with the surface.

Occasionally the surface is greatly excited as strong winds create much dynamic activity. But even during the strongest winds there is an unbelievable calm below the surface. In the depths it is as if there was no turbulence. The turbulent scene of the visible surface is unheard in the depths.

Beneath the surface of praise and worship music in gatherings - below the dynamic ministry activities there is an awesome place of peace in God. In that place of peace the mighty works of God are effortless to us.

It seems we are not in the reality of the things happening in the natural realm. We have truly come apart into a realm of peace beyond all understanding, as we observe ourselves move and speak effortlessly in the power and control of another. Miracles seem very natural to those who enter into the depth of the supernatural.

In this placid depth, movement does not readily appear to exist. But in reality there are powerful streams of current that are steadily moving without the noise and turbulence of the surface. In the natural world the climate and all areas of life that are affected by climate are changed by the movement of ocean currents.

So it is also in the spiritual. The unseen deep currents of God are flowing and bringing great change that is affecting the land and will bring significant change to all life. The world will not continue as it has been but must be reformed by the massive deep currents of God moving upon the earth.

Much of the surface may seem to some to be foolish or unnecessary frivolous activity as the Spirit wind blows upon the youth of the land. What may seem like silly manifestations are only the surface of the deep currents of God moving the world from a place of men's rule to the reality of the kingdom of God on earth.

The deep currents of God are moving us from religion based on the tree of knowledge to the tree of supernatural life by the Spirit - holy life in union with others and communion with God.

The world is being redeemed and through much tribulation we must enter the kingdom of God. The deeper currents are not always flowing through big name ministers.

Often they are flowing deeper under the surface through relatively unknown men, women and young people who have given their all to carry the deeper current of the love of God to the nations of the world.

They go into the poor places of the world often to thrown away people -they pray weeping for sick children - they give and do all they can pouring out the love God has poured into them.

In their passion God works miracles to feed the hungry - heal the sick and bring encouragement to the downtrodden.

Wherever these no name undercurrent people go the love of God brings healing into the hearts of people and the poor become rich with peace and joy.

The hopeless become filled with the purpose of God and become powerful witnesses of the miracle working love and power of God that raises the dead.

These humble ministers don't need a title nor position. They are just ordinary folk who through much tribulation and brokenness have entered into the deep currents of God.

Consumed by His love they become fountains of the liquid fire of God's love pouring out to the nations.

Look for the love - pursue love - it never fails.

I Came That You May Have Life

Musa Opiyo

I came and died that you might have life and have it more abundantly. I have given you authority to not only tread on the enemy but command a release a hundred fold of what was stolen, pressed down, shaken together and running over. I desire that you, My people, live an abundant life. Abundant life may mean doing well financially as well as good living, and spiritually speaking, the abundance of My presence and My power flowing through your lives. Many in My body have come into conflict with the prosperity message. I am an abundant God and I do not withold things from those who ask. Yet I provide with the reason for you to provide for your bretheren who are in need.

Is this not the fast thatI have chosen; to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring into your house the poor who are cast out? When you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh. Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteuosness shall go before you, the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call and the Lord shall answer, you shall cry and he shall say, 'Here I am'. Isaiah 53: 6-9

I have called you to minister unto the needy. How can you do so if you are broke and bearly able to survive? I have not called you to survive and get by but I have called you to live in My abundance so that you shall be indeed the salt and the light that I have called you to be. I have called you to further My Kingdom of hearts though your giving. You have said all you can say. You have prophesied all you can prophesy. But if My Word it not applied practically, what good is that?

My Spirit longs that you are free from the chains of bondage to sin, sickness, discouragement and all that is contrary to My Word. There is a need for a revolution of your mind. Who do you see yourself as? When you look in the mirror, do you see yourself as I see you, or are you conformed to a mindset that is still bound to the law?

Romans 12: 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

It is time for My church to step out in faith and reach this earth for Me. It is time to shine with the abundance of My authority and grace unto a hurting people. This is My heart. I will no longer allow squabbles and unchanged mindsets to ground the work that I am doing to a halt. I am raising up Josephs' in this hour who will bring forth a godly administration and government to My Body. Those who know My heart and those who have sought after Me with their all. Creative power and miracles shall proceed from the words they shall speak, for they shall be My Words, says the Lord.

My House Is Not To Be a House of Merchandise!

Gaylene Womack

This being the week of celebrating Passover, the Lord showed me a vision (didn't need interpretation) as a word of knowledge or prophecy. The vision was a merchandising table set up at a church and a spark of fire hit it but the sellers ignored that spark and kept selling. Maybe a minute later another spark hit the table and still the sellers didn't respond. Then immediately a consuming fire hit the table and destroyed everything.

The Lord said:

My house is not to be a house of merchandise but a house of prayer and I shall begin to come to those that proclaim their houses to be My houses and bring swift judgment when they reject the warning word of the prophets I send to speak forth My warnings. The blood of the Lamb does not protect those that disobey the Word of the Lord. They are speaking forth the protection of the blood, but it DOES NOT protect such ones that have turned My house into a house of merchandising.

Be Prepared To Show Them the Way

Dee Hoetmer

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I AM THE WAY, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Nations shall rise and nations shall fall. I am breaking the hierarchies that have been in place for centuries. Expect upheaval, expect chaos My Beloveds, BUT DO NOT FEAR FOR I AM YOUR HIGH TOWER.

The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; HE SHALL DWELL ON HIGH: HIS PLACE OF DEFENSE SHALL BE THE MUNITIONS OF ROCKS: BREAD SHALL BE GIVEN HIM, HIS WATERS SHALL BE SURE. Isaiah 33:14-16
The beast of the sea is churning, his head has broken the waters. Soon will come the time, as prophesied, when the Anti Christ will raise it's head. There will come a time when the masses will run to and fro, looking for answers to the coming chaos. Will you be in a position My Beloved, My prepared ones, to SHOW THEM THE WAY. Chaos must proceed My Glory being manifest to the world, this is so that more will receive My Son. I will orchestrate events that the only way they can go, is to look upward. You will shine brightly My Beloveds, and they will come streaming to you looking for answers, seeking the truth. I WILL IN NO WAY LEAVE YOU, NOR FORSAKE YOU in the coming time, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. This will be a thrilling time My Beloveds, DO NOT FEAR. IT IS THE SUMMATION OF THE AGE. My prophets of old looked to this time and wished they could partake. Great will be My Glory upon you in those dark times. Your heart will thrill at the signs and wonders I will perform to glorify My name! A word of caution My Beloveds, do not be deceived by the signs and wonders done by the evil one, the dragon.
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.Rev 13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.Rev 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? Revelation 13:1-4
DO NOT FEAR FOR GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD. Hold fast to what you have and make room for more. IT IS TIME Beloveds, it is time. The bells are tolling, the trumpets blowing, the seas roar, the winds blow as a hurricane. Change is coming, great change. It is for this purpose My Beloveds that you have been through the fire; a people made white, a people that will reflect My glory, that will walk in My power and authority. This is the season that it has been all about, for when you see these things come upon the earth, BE PREPARED TO SHOW THEM THE WAY. You were born for such a time as this; to be a beacon of light to the lost, a hand of provision, a source of My light and love in a dark world. THE RISEN CHRIST ARISES. "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches'. Warn My people for Me saith the Lord.

Costly Grace

Sylvia Deall

Costly grace.
No cheap grace!
How beautiful He makes us as He bathes us in costly grace. Grace cost my Jesus everything...He held nothing back,and He gave
.... so freely
..... so willingly joyfully completely He gave everything for me. The cost of grace as the Son surrendered His will to that of the Father and drank the cup to the very dregs. How can we comprehend the price You paid? My Jesus... I cannot comprehend the depth of Your love for me. You gave up heaven to become flesh, gave up Your omnipotence to become a helpless babe. You who are the King of kings gave up the throne to be nailed to a cross, to be labelled king of the Jews, a title of mockery and scorn, so we could become kings and priests to God. You gave up Your reputation and became of no reputation. You gave up dominion and became a bondservant. You gave up deity and became man. You gave up authority and submitted Yourself to the Father's will and became obedient unto death. You gave up life and died that I might live forever.

You who knew no sin became sin for me. You who walked in perfect righteousness took on unrighteousness that I might become the righteousness of God in You.

My Jesus... so beautiful, so glorious. Yet You had no form or comeliness that man would desire You. You were despised and rejected. You who came to give us fullness of joy became the man of sorrows acquainted with grief. Such was the awfulness of Your death, that we hid our faces from You. You before Whom every knee shall bow were despised and considered of no worth.

You love me so much. You went to the cross for me.... and it was my hands that wielded those whips. It was my hands that took the hammer and the nails and drove them deep. It was my transgressions that gouged Your flesh and my disease that caused the stripes. I turned away from You my Jesus, yet God still laid my sin upon You.

Such costly grace, Jesus. The price You paid for my forgiveness, to give me fullness of joy, to pour out on me the peace that passes understanding, to make me righteous, to lead me into eternal life. Grace beyond cost. Priceless!

What can I render the Lord for all His benefits towards me? I will take up the cup of salvation and call upon the Name of the Lord. I will drink the cup of life just as You drank the cup of death and I will lay down my life and die that You might live in me. I will lay upon Your altar, a living sacrifice. I will be poured out by You as a drink offering however and whenever and wherever You choose. I have no life of my own, I have no rights, I have no righteousness but You.

You are my Lord. You are my beloved.

A Time of Pursuit, Preparation, Provision and Persecution

Sam Buick

Acts 20:28-30

Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. "I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.

Matthew 10:16-42

Beloved ones, My Spirit is moving over the nations at this hour in pursuit of those who are pursuing after Me. The "hound of heaven", My Spirit is calling out and seeking those who desire life in abundance and to dwell in My Presence. I long for you! I long to embrace you and give you the grace and the abundance of that which flows from the heart of the Father.

Come, and pursue me, for I am a jealous Lover and I desire to pour out My heart and grace upon you. How I long for those who will remain in that place, as Mary did, that place of deep passionate pursuit and intimacy?

Now is a season of pursuit, over every obstacle in the way, you will find many who will embrace this divine obsession to follow heart after the heart of the Father!

Beloved you are in a new season of preparation. As in journeys in the wilderness, there are fountains and also the occasional oasis from which you can find refuge and sustanance. In this season of preparation you will find such refreshing and such sustanance and it will renew your soul and cause you to move into a deeper and richer intimacy with Me.

This will be a true season of preparation, an INNER preparation, one that will sustain you in the coming days of travail and adversity.

You will find this time a time a strengthening and renewing of the vision of the Kingdom purposes of the Father. You will sense that what is coming is that time of testing of the inner man, the testing and refining that brings forth the character of the Son within you.

You will see this in the same light as Gesthemene. It will that place where temptation to flee and give up will come in subtle and dangerous ways. It will be a place where the will to pursue hard after the Father will be severely tested.

It is a season of preparation for those who are called by My Name to decide, "Not my will but Your will be done..." Many will be faced with such dramatic choices that will affect not only My purposes for their lives, but the lives of many others within the Kingdom, and many who have yet to embrace the Kingdom.

Beloved, INTERCEDE for your brethren, that they will come to that place of complete and total yieldedness and surrender.

Beloved, while you are in this place you will have supernatural provision for you. The Father will provide both respite, but also provision for you, provision for your needs in ways and means that will astound many.

Look for the simplicity of provision through the genorosity of the brethren and through those who are yet to enter the Kingdom, who will respond in compassion and love toward you.

There will be a release of GREAT FAVOUR and blessing that will in turn meet your needs in a supernatural manner. Where others will seem to lack, you will find abundance, not only to meet your need, but to sow into the lives of others and keep the cycle of blessing going.

As you sow what you have given, you will reap much, and you will find plenty and abundance in a land filled with famine and drought.

The Lord will not forsake His beloved people. He will prosper you and provide, so that you will extend the purposes of the Father to many others. Rejoice and be glad for the Lord will become your bounty and your fullness and you shall see the blessing of the Lord in your midst!

Beloved ones, you shall see that in the midst of all this, that the Lord will give the enemy of your souls opportunity to test and to persecute and cause travail to His people. Many will want to blame the enemy and his minions for this persecution, but this persecution will bring about a two fold purpose.

On the one hand this time of great travail and persecution will cause many to question their very salvation.

There will be many who will question and cry out as to the unfairness of this time of great trouble. Many will have their doctrines of prosperity shattered.

Many will have their understanding of sovereignty challenged.

Many will wonder if the righteous truly have an inheritance.

Many will wonder at the silence of the Lord in the midst of their affliction.

Beloved do not wonder that you will be in a season of suffering, for I have not told you that you will not suffer.

I have promised to be with those that endure and persevere to the end.

This affliction coming upon the Body of Christ is to refine My Body, to make her without spot and wrinkle, and to draw My Body into My bossom, into the place of intimacy, and rest, and life.

Those who abide and rest in Me will find comfort in this time of tribulation and trouble.

This will refine and the fire will cause much that is not of Me to fall away, and will in turn bring a new release of freedom and joy to those who are called by My Name.

"This time of persecution will not only draw many back to Me, and cause many to rediscover their first love, but it will bring about division within the church system.

Many whose hearts are divided will have their hearts revealed to them. Many will have their motives exposed.

Many will be revealed for who they are, and the the Body of Christ, as well as the world will SEE and KNOW the difference between those who are truly of Me and those who are not.

Through the trials and afflictions the hearts of My people will be seen for what they are. They will be seen as being humble before the Father, and will have My glory upon them.

My glory will come in such grace and truth that it will confound those whom the world considers to be wise. It will confound those who are considered religious and spiritual, and will reveal their agenda and false humility.

Beloved, arise and be bold, and take hold of Me! Do not fear what is now coming!

I the Lord have decreed it to be so.

I am reclaiming My House, My Body, My Holy Nation, My Holy and Righteous Priesthood for Myself.

I am refining My Bride!
I am restoring My People!
I am reclaiming what men and demons have stolen!

I am making My People holy and beautiful!

Some through the waters!
Some through the fire!

But all through the blood of the Lamb!

Rejoice Beloved, for wherever the Lamb goes, you will surely follow!

Hear the voice of the Lamb, and embrace His calling!

The Lamb calls you to His pasture! He will feed and nourish you and He will be your Shepherd and your Shelter.
