“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7).
Abiding in God’s Will
The verse of scripture has a much deeper meaning than you may think. To “abide in Me” is to live in Christ and Him in you. And you are forbidden to meditate or touch anything that is not of Him. This part of the verse is not too difficult to understand for anything of sin should not be let in. The next part of the verse has been misunderstood for a long time by many and needs further explanation; “and My words abide in you.” Here is what most people think this part of the verse is saying; if you stay away from sin and read your bible every day, or as often as possible then you are abiding in His word. Therefore their belief is that the promise in this verse “you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7b) is automatically working for every believing Christian. And when it doesn’t work in their life they question their faith and the truth of the bible.
We must be willing to answer the call of the Holy Spirit and be willing to follow Him to the depths of our sanity. He will take you through various situations a long this journey teaching you what His Words really mean. Whether it’s the written word of spoken Word we must obtain understanding for this will increase our knowledge and with knowledge we will become much wiser.
The Deep Calls unto the Deep
Now let’s give this some thought. It’s not too difficult to read your bible and restrain yourself from offending God. So why doesn’t every Christian receive whatever they so desire after all the bible promises it to be so? The promise in this verse we are discussing states that “you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.”
This is a very powerful promise and I will explain how you are to obtain this promise. Know the first part of this puzzle of truth must be broke down in order for us to see the prerequisites outlined within it before we can receive the full measure of the promise and its manifestation. Allow me if you will to stretch your faith a little and share with you what I have been taught by the Holy Spirit. The next few steps are not meant to offend but rather to help set you in a place to begin walking in the fullness of the promises of God.
Remember this one thing! The Holy Bible is 100% from God and is all true. Truth will always work when applied as instructed. If what you have been taught in the past is not working then it’s not being taught correctly and it’s time to ask the only true teacher for the correct answers. The Holy Spirit is the author and teacher that will give you all truth and nothing but the truth. Also remember what is written in the Holy Bible is not all there is to know about living this life as a child of God. We can continue to learn more daily from our God; for He is NOT dead He is alive and is speaking to you and me.
Who or What is the Word of God
First of all the Bible is not the Word of God, Jesus Christ is the Word of God. He can speak to you through the written words found in the bible but do not be confused; He is not wood pulp and ink bound in genuine leather.
The Holy Scriptures are a compilation of divine events that are inscribed testimonials about God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. When you are reading from your bible you need to know the difference between the (logos) word and His (Rhema) Word. Many words in the bible have more than one meaning for they originated in other languages other than English. So when we read our bibles in the English translation the same word can be used over and over as having the same meaning; however, in the original text it may have multiple meanings. If you are reading your bible and you are just obtaining information as you study you are reading the written word or you could say the (logos) word. The Holy Spirit can use any book, billboard, poster, man, woman, child and even a donkey to speak to you. There is no limit to how God can speak His (Rhema) Word or to say His life giving Word. We are always looking for the life giving Word, the (Rhema) Word of God. The (Rhema) Word changes or lives and gives direction, heals and delivers us. Do you know what it’s like to have the Holy Spirit speak His (Rhema) Word to you in the very hour you have need?
This is the (Rhema) Word this verse is talking about not just whatever you want to read or claim for yourself. The verse is referring to the (Rhema) Word from Jesus Christ who IS the living Word in this verse. “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7). I hope and pray you understand this part and use it as your spiritual compass to guide you through life. Continually keep your spiritual antennas up ready to receive every life giving (Rhema) Word that comes to you. It is your Master, King, Lord Jesus speaking to you. Pray, hear and obey, for it is the Christian way. Amen, so be it!

Thank you for your messages. RE: Pulling Down Strongholds
I have so much to learn. I want all God has for me. I want to walk in the supernatural also. Just like Smith W. and Lester S. Maybe God does have favorites – but I pray to be one of them! May our God possess all of me and lead me by his Holy Spirit all the days of my life. May God use me for His Honor and Glory. May my life be a life fully committed and submitted unto Him and Him alone! I need Him more today than yesterday!
Thank you –
God through you really lit it up tonight. After reading this I can feel God’s GLORY RADAITING and BOOMERAHGING ABOUT!
I’m really captivated by your article.
More importantly as I have been reading the book of Joshua and Gideon in the book of Judges.
These books summarise and confirm the teaching in your article.
In the book of Joshua, God clearly and firmly instructs Joshua that obedience to His word is key to Joshua succeeding in his assignment.
The words God spoke to Joshua when Achan had stolen and hidden the sacred items were” I will not be with Israel as they have kept things set for destruction amongst themselves”It is amazing to see in this book how sin drives the presence of His spirit away from us.
We learn a good lesson on Othaniel, that once you know your rank then God can use you. The bible says that he became a judge once the spirit of the Lord came upon him.
This is so powerful as this clearly shows that we can know that we are called when the spirit of the Lord is upon us. Imagine a judge without the spirit and a prophet without the spirit of the Lord.
Gideon is a good demonstration to know that God is not a respecter of persons and that obedience is key.When you remain in the rank, God is able to use you as you are. He said to Gideon go in the strength that is in you (All ranks are not the same but obedience is key)
Thank you, you are such a blessing!

What is Prophetic Counseling?
There is a difference between receiving Prophetic Counseling vs. Personal Prophecy.
When giving prophetic guidance and counseling it helps to know more about the person. The difference is when you receive a prophetic word from God He is telling you what He wants to say. When I am ministering in prophetic counseling He is giving me answers to what you need to know and what to do in order to receive the results you are looking for. When emailing or visiting over the phone most of the time God gives me the answers within seconds, if they are warranted questions. My understanding of this scripture below is different than what the Word of Faith movement taught me:
“For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
Anytime I am with someone or chatting via email or other ways I am listening to what God has to say. The is a totally different understanding of this verse rather than what Word of Faith has been teaching over the years; “Whatever we agree upon it will come to pass” one major flaw is the one person left out of this formula, GOD!
The partnership level between being a Prophecy Partner and that of being a Family Partner are different and one does not automatically cover the requested offering for the other.
What do Prophetic Family Partner’s Receive?
- Prophetic Counseling
- Learning How to Know God’s Will

I Want to be Your Prophetic Pastor
In the past, I spent much of my time traveling to other countries, but ministering in distant places left me drained. I have decided to hang up my traveling shoes and focus upon those families who regularly support this ministry. It is time for me to develop long term relationships with the people who have a real desire to learn more about what God is doing today.
Since 1989, I have ministered to over 120,000 people via prophecy as of May 1995. I receive hundreds of prophecy requests each year and I will continue to send out personal prophecy via Audio Email and on CD’s to those who are seeking God.
In addition to the prophetic gift God has given me, the Lord has also directed me to become a Prophetic Pastor to those who will receive me. In this new capacity, I can sew prophetic seeds into the lives of those who want to prosper with me. If you will allow me to be your Prophetic Pastor, I will commit to be there for you, and help you prosper in spiritual and financial health and wealth.
In recent years, it has become almost impossible to reach me; my home telephone rings day and night. For this reason, I have started the Family Partners Telephone Access Card. The Access card allows Family Partners to reach me during times of trouble or when having difficulty finding God’s will when making tough decisions. When you use the Access card, I will seek God’s direction for you and help determine how God wants to meet your immediate needs.
3 John 2
In HIS service,
Receiving Your Personal Prophecy
Though a prophet may receive a monetary blessing when giving a person a word from God, he is not to be mistaken for a hireling. A prophet who is a hireling will give a false prophecy at the request of his financial provider for monetary gain.
In contrast to these false prophets, there are men of God who desire to only speak God’s words and to reveal God’s plans for the people. These men receive their spiritual blessing from God and their financial blessing from God’ people.
Old Testament Times
In the Old Testament we find that the Lord commanded Samuel, a prophet of God, to prophesy over a young man who would be coming his way around lunchtime. The Lord indicated that this young man’s name was Saul and he would be looking for his father’s lost donkeys.
I Samuel 9:6
Today’s Spiritual Guidance
As it was in the Old Testament it is today; it is not evil to seek a prophet for spiritual guidance or direction from God.
I Samuel 9:7
Then Saul’s servant said, “Look, I have here at hand one fourth of a shekel of silver. I will give that to the man of God, to tell us our way.”
I Samuel 9:8
In this and other scriptures throughout the Bible, God has shown us that we must support his prophets. These men of old had conviction that they must bless the prophet, Samuel, for his intercession. God wants His people to be cheerful in giving.
II Corinthians 9:6,7
