Dry Bones

Dry Bones 

[cvm_video id=”3745″]


Then He said to me, ‘Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They indeed say, ‘Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!’ Therefore, prophesy and say to them, thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. Then you shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves. I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the LORD, have spoken it and performed it, says the LORD'” (Ezekiel 37:11-14).


People have interpreted this word in many ways. Some point to Israel being taken back in 1947, while others say in 1967. Many say God was speaking of the rebuilding of the land. However, there is a problem with this. We haven’t seen ANY people coming out of the graves in Israel. Defenders of this interpretation say this is just an analogy of people coming to the Lord and being reborn. While that is a possibility, we would be looking at a prophecy that was spoken ages ago, yet it didn’t come to pass until 1947 or 1967.


When people request their prophecy, they want to know when it will come to pass. They want to receive prophecy that will happen within their lifetime. What good will it do if I prophesied about things that will happen hundreds of years from today? People are not interested in what will happen 400 years from now. They want to know what will happen to them now!


When Jesus Christ walked on the face of the earth, many prophecies given over hundreds of years began to unfold. In fact, a lot of the scriptures in the New Testament are the fulfillment of prophecies made in the Old Testament.


The book of Matthew reveals when this prophetic word from Ezekiel came to pass. 


Each book of the gospel, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, were written to different groups of people. The book of Matthew was written to the people of Israel, the Jewish people. It was written to them in terms they understood. In Matthew Chapter 27, Jesus had already gone through the sentencing process and had been turned over to the Roman soldiers to be crucified. He had been hung on the cross, and when he came to the point when He was about to give up His spirit, the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s prophecy was completed. The evidence is found in the recorded scriptures below.


“Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many” (Matthew 27:51-53).


What a day that was! Many came out of the graves, but how many? It was the promise of God to all those who believed that Jesus Christ was coming, that their day of salvation was near. They believed that was the day of the final sacrifice; that The Lamb of God was coming. When that day came, everyone who believed before His resurrection would be raised from the dead.


So many questions come to mind. How many people was that? Was King David in the group? Ezekiel? Isaiah? Who else came out of the graves? What happened to those who saw these people walk out of the graves bearing witness? When they witnessed dry bones taking on flesh and breath, they went into the city bearing witness. After beholding this, how could they not believe Jesus Christ was the living Son of God?!


Even for us today who did not witness this event, the promise of salvation is our great hope! Some people claim that this verse refers to a spiritual awakening and that many became born again.


I don’t believe that explanation.


Why would God speak about putting breath to dry bones unless He is speaking about physical things rather than spiritual things? What happened to all those people who came out of the graves after the resurrection? Where are they? These people already died once, came out of the graves and were resurrected. How many times can you die and be resurrected? The scriptures say only once! So, what happened to these people? Are they still with us or when Jesus ascended, did they go with him? Is it possible that they were taken up when Jesus ascended from The Mount of Olives? Could this have been the first resurrection and rapture? Could this be the group of people raised from the dead who failed to convince the Israelites to repent that Jesus spoke about at the end of the parable of the rich man and Lazarus? (Luke 16:19-31).


Consider the possibilities.


While we still seek answers to these questions, one thing we do know is that we are in for some history-making moments in this lifetime!

Angels & Tongues

Angels & Tongues

[cvm_video id=”3747″]


New revelation has come this week, so you can expect to hear something today that you have never heard before. The video that accompanies this short article will go into much more detail. Here are some highlights regarding the two or more revelations regarding Angels and the Gift of Tongues.


In the law, it is written“With men of other tongues and other lips I will speak to this people; And yet, for all that, they will not hear Me,” says the Lord” (1 Corinthians 14:21).


Finally, our Lord has made sense of the gift of tongues in a way that is plain as the nose on your face; however, the vast major of us have been missing this incredible truth. In fact, this new revelation is stretching boundaries that once existed but now are gone; the mysteries of His kingdom are being slowly unveiled. Each day a little more is uncovered for all to know.


Going back to the beginning of Pentecost we see where the baptism of the Holy Spirit fell upon all who were in the upper. We can make a clear distinction of what happened once they began to speak in other tongues. Fifteen or more foreigners heard their native language spoken from the upper room. This was an amazing event for several reasons. Being the fulfillment of the prophecy from Joel 2: 28-32. The visual sign that all must have seen in the upper room; cloven tongues of fire came down upon them is unforgettable experience. There was power distributed to all who would believe and they did receive the manifestation of His promise.


The point is that this type of supernatural event has not happened at this level since that day. It truly was a sign to all nations that no matter what language you speak or what your nationality is you can speak the language of God if you are baptized in the Holy Spirit, the baptism of Christ Jesus.


We probably all have heard of someone who did not know how to speak in the language of the people whom they were with so they began to speak in their heavenly language. Surprisingly, the people understood and reported that they were speaking at the highest level of perfection in their native tongue; however, the person speaking did not understand one word they said. It is true, you can witness a miracle of tongues coming at a time where you really needed one but none have had a group effect like that in the upper room; at least nothing recorded.



Speaking to Angels

Just this week the Holy Spirit began showing me something that made me shout out loud. I can tell you this one revelation; that about to tell you really gave me understanding and I pray it does for you too.


You have probably noticed that when you take the time to pray in your heavenly language life begins to come together in a much better way. It’s when we fail to pray that our life becomes chaotic and not in sync with God’s kingdom.


I have gone before our Lord and asked if He would show me what happens when we begin to pray in our spirit language. Here is what the Holy Spirit began to show me. When we open ourselves to the Holy Spirit to speak through us is when it basically happens. As the Holy Spirit uses us to speak through He is essentially speaking to our angels that are appointed to minister for us according to Hebrews 1:14.

“Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?”  


Sending out Angels to do our bidding is not as simple as to talk to them like you would a human. In fact, we cannot make them do anything but the Holy Spirit can speak through us to have them do whatever He desires.


If you will ask the Holy Spirit to make your mind fruitful (knowledgeable) of the things being said that you do not understand; you’ll learn a lot. You may see things happening like stepping into a vision but having all your bodily functions intact. You may hear things and feel things that relate to the events that are to take place. When you understand that it is the Holy Spirit directing the Angels what they are to do it all makes sense.


“Therefore, let him who speaks in a tongue pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding” (1 Corinthians 14:13-15).


Spiritual Tongues Change, Why?

This too is new revelation! When you are being used by the Holy Spirit who is speaking through you, in an unknown language you may sense that it sounds a lot like Chinese or Norwegian and then it abruptly changes to a totally different sound like American Indian or maybe Swahili.


“What’s up with this?” I ask the Holy Spirit.


This is what I received.


Most people have their heavenly language and it never seems to change its sound, its constant every time they pray in their gift of tongues. If you are one these people who have just one spiritual language then you seriously should begin to ask for more. There is good reason to have more than one language because it reveals the number of the Angels you have appointed to minister for you. Don’t you want to know how many Angels are ministering for you?


If you could see in the Spirit while you are praying in the Spirit you would see one Angel after another stepping up to receive their marching orders. Sending them out to be busy about doing what has been commanded of them. It’s a lot like when you are prophesying; with each word that you speak an Angel is being dispatched to do whatever the Holy Spirit has commanded. Through your voice speaking in your heavenly language you can now know what you can expect.


“Bless the Lord, you His angels, 

Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word” (Psalms 103:20).


By now you might have figured it out! But just in case you haven’t allow me to share with you. Each spiritual language is designed to address a different Angel. Say you were praying in your regular spiritual tongue then suddenly you start hearing a language that sounds like the Holy Spirit is ordering a warring Angel to go out and attack on your behalf.


Then you sense another change and your tongue shifts to a the third command. Sounding much calmer and peaceful. Then you feel really smoothed over with a comforting unction that breaks out into a lovely fragrance. The order is coming through you to make peace with the fragrance and knowledge of Christ Jesus. Then the order of events stops as you know you have prayed through.


“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place” (2 Corinthians 2:14).

Walking in the Holy Spirit


[cvm_video id=”3749″]


“I say then: ‘Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirityou are not under the law‘” (Galatians 5:16-18).


You must understand, what you believe is what you will do, and what you do will affect your destiny. It is important to know truth. If your doctrine is not in line with the Spirit of Truth you cannot walk in the fullness of the Spirit of God on earth. Christ Jesus now sits at the right-hand of the All Mighty One. We now have His Holy Spirit living amongst us.  


I, (Jesus) will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever- 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you(John 14:16-17).


Being born-again and being saved are not exactly synonymous. When you were born-again you were saved from eternal damnation; however, salvation does not stop there. We need to work on our salvation in this life in order to receive Christ Jesus promise; “I have come that they may have life, and that you may have it more abundant(John 10:10b)


In this life for the abundant life here and now you work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure”(Philippians 2:12b-13)You must work out your salvation to be saved from potential heart disease, diabetes, and other deadly health problems. How we do this, by practicing moderation in all things, even when we eat or drink.


The same evil spirit (demon) that drives a person to over eat is the same spirit that drives the body and soul to crave alcohol. Both will rob you of living a prosperous and abundant life.


A demon can take possess in a certain area of your soul (mind, will & emotions) causing you to do things you may or may not want to do. In this area, we have allowed a demonic foe to enter our soul deep enough we are unable to remove this evil with ease. If we feed upon the things that are evil long enough you are going to start acting like the devil by doing what you allowed the devil to do within your thoughts. It starts by thinking upon evil and when nothing happens, no immediate punishment for doing so you begin to come into agreement with the devil, thinking it must be okay. Practicing sin can be sweet to one’s flesh for a season, but believe me it will eventually catch-up with you. When it does, you are locked into bondage until salvation is granted.


Learning the ‘Looney Tunes

“Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God(1 John 3:11).


You may have seen the old cartoon where the dog has a cat by the neck dangling him over an open well. In the cartoon, an angel appears on the dog’s shoulder and begins to tell him that it would not be right to drop the cat. Then on the other shoulder, the devil appears and talks the dog into dropping the poor cat into the well. The cat’s owner appears and beats the dog unmercifully. This may seem like an elementary analogy for tempting the soul, but it does have a measure of truth. This scene, which is meant to be humorous, is worth cataloging for the next time the devil tempts you. Abstain from all appearance of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:22).


The one thing about learning to fear God is to understand that His spiritual laws and how they are used to enforce His will. If you compromise with the devil, there will be a pay day someday. Expect to be chastened (punished) by the Lord for your disobedient behavior. Knowing that when we disobey God, we are punished. This should be enough reason for us to walk in His righteousness. Sometimes our punishment for our disobedience comes much later and difficult to understand why we are being chastened. “Some men’s sins are clearly evident, preceding them to judgment, but those of some men follow later(I Timothy 5:24).


When the chastening hand of God comes, it can be difficult to understand how the punishment relates to the sin. Most of the time we forget what sin we have committed that brought on such strange tribulations. I have discovered the closer you walk with God, the quicker the punishment comes which makes it much easier to understand why you are being punished for what you have done wrong.


The devil cannot possess our spirit! He will test and tempt our souls and body, but if we belong to God, the evil one cannot steal our eternal spirit.


Demon possession for someone who is NOT born-again is a much different situation. The person who is possessed by a demon obviously being used to serve the evil one. Part of our calling as a Believer is to cast out demons. To thoroughly cover this subject regarding casting out demons would take many lessons to cover this topic; however, I believe it is worth mentioning.


“We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one (I John 5:18,19)


Every new born-again Believer’s testimony I have heard includes a statement of being delivered of some sin habit or major struggle. Whether it is cussing, smoking, drugs, anger, promiscuity and this list can go on; Believer’s report being set free. Usually, they share they still have one or more sin problems they are having to battle. None of them report being delivered from every problem or sin when they became a born-again Believer. They may still have problems with wanting to get drunk, chase women, or run with old friends who do evil things. Whatever sin problems you still have, God expects you to overcome them.


He desires us to show our will to serve Him by resisting the remaining temptations. We must fight the good fight of faith, believing you will receive His reward for overcoming sin in your life.


Show me a Spirit-filled Believer that is on fire for Jesus, and I will introduce you to the devil’s worst nightmare.


To be a born-again Believer without the baptism of the Holy Spirit, is to have eternal life with Christ but little power to defend yourself in this life against the world’s temptations. Therefore, I highly advise you to ask in pray for our heavenly Father to make a way for you to be baptized in Jesus, which is to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. “And finding some disciples he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So, they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.” And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So, they said, “Into John’s baptism.” Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.” When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied” (Acts 19:1-6)


Begin to pray asking our Father in heaven to deliver you from temptation. Give your promise you will do everything your power to resist the voice to the who has lead you into so much trouble in your life. “Therefore, submit to GodResist the devil and he will flee from you(James 4:7) If you ask in prayer these things God will deliver you; however, you must do your part and that is not to give an ear to the devil again.


Make your mind up today; you will only follow One voice, the voice of the Holy Spirit. Commit yourself to obey His voice no matter what it may bring. Doing this will open heaven’s window of blessings and the Holy Spirit will shower you each day of your life guiding you into all truth.


“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come (John 16:13)


Walk in the Spirit with the fire of His power burning deep within your spirit. Knowing that He will not lead you into ruin but rather give you more than your greatest expectations. To walk in the Spirit is to be led by the Holy Spirit fearing nothing on earth but the Spirit, for the Spirit is God. Jesus said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirithe cannot enter the kingdom of God” (John 3:5). “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth (John 4:24).

In the Presence of the Holy Spirit

In the Presence of the Holy Spirit

[cvm_video id=”3751″]


Before ministering, William Branham made a statement during his public prayer to the Lord that has stuck with me to this day. He said, “I take every spirit in the hearing of my voice under my control.” In other words, no other spirit except the Holy Spirit would be allowed to speak or manifest during the time of ministry. I thought, “How can the man be so arrogant to make such a statement?”


Judge not least you be judged and by the measure you judge it will be measured unto you”  (Matthew 7:1,2)


Sure enough, not too long after I had that thought, I was about to pray before ministering in a service and I heard, pray this: “I take every spirit under my control that can hear my voice, and no other spirit shall speak except the Holy Spirit.”


I prayed the prayer as commanded and we had a great time experiencing the supernatural revelation of God among His people. Unfortunately, I must report to you that there was another time I felt the Holy Spirit prompting me to pray the same prayer, but I was not sure if it was Him or me. So, I did not pray the prayer of ‘spiritual control’ and I have regretted it ever since. For a few years I started praying; “Lord, if anything I prophesy is not of you strike me dead.” This really got the people’s attention; however, after a while they ask me not to pray that prayer in fear of me losing my life. Well, I’m still here, twenty-plus years later.


Not praying, ‘the spiritual control’ prayer of the ‘strike me dead’ prayer left me and the congregation vulnerable to other spirits that interrupted the meetings. The first meeting I ministered I did not pray either prayer, while ministering in Norway. Oddly, a man jumped up and began rebuking me in front of the whole congregation about a prophetic word I had given. The pastor did nothing to stop the man and even began to chime in, agreeing with him. I had to stop ministering, pick up my Bible, and lead them into what the scriptures had to say about the word. The argument was over Psalm 105:15, “Touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm.” I had prophesied to a young man that as David did not go against Saul, God’s anointed, neither should this young man go against those who are anointed over him. The man’s argument was that Saul was of the Devil and not of God. My point is that if I had prayed the prayer of ‘spiritual control’, I am positive this episode would not have happened.


“But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things” (I John 2:20).


Another statement that William Branham made troubled me as well, until I received confirmation through my own ministry experience. Branham was about to begin ministering to an elderly lady. He seemed to notice she was very uncomfortable. He said, “Do not worry; that is just my angel you feel and He is going to contact your spirit.” Wow, what is this? I thought to myself, this must be ‘New-Age’ statement I was hearing. But not so. We know that if we are born again we have the Spirit of the anointed one, the mind of Christ, the all-knowing One. Why would it be so strange to have knowledge about another Christian’s spirit?


For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God” (I Corinthians 2:11).


The Holy Spirit searches the mind and will of God who lives in the hearts of believers. “Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God” (Romans 8:27).


Jesus said, “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:4,5).


Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (John 14:12).


We know Jesus gave personal prophecies to many people while He walked the face of the earth. (Ref. Matthew 28:34 & 68, etc.) If we believe the works of Jesus, we too will do the works He has done, including giving words of knowledge, wisdom, and prophecy.


If Christ could see the words of destiny written on the tablets of another man’s heart, then why shouldn’t we be able to do the same when we believe? So, for William Branham to say that he would contact the spirit of another is simply to say that he would find out from his ministering spirit what was going on within their spirit. It is like communicating with one’s inner-self without depending upon any of your physical senses. In fact, when you are deep into that spiritual communication with someone’s spirit man, you are unable to hear clearly with your physical ears.


But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. And the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you” (I Corinthians 14:24,25)


Many times, when I am ministering prophetically, if someone tries to talk to me I will not hear them. It is not because I am hard of hearing, but it’s as if I am not even in the same sphere. I can see their mouth moving, but all that I can manage to decipher is the sound of a distant gargling noise. On the other hand, if I am not in the Spirit I can hear their natural words very well, but I probably will not be able to hear the message within their spirit.
