Quicker to Criticize than Support

January 2, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Rebuke given by Brother Shelley

The Spirit of the Lord just spoke in my spirit, and I know it was Him, because I was listening for His Voice. I’m going to say it, and I’m not saying anything else. I’m just going to say exactly what He said. He said, “We as a Body… We as a Body are quicker to criticize than we are to support.” The Lord’s rebuking us.

I felt Him say one other thing in my spirit. And that is. We use the excuse that we don’t know how. But there’s not a person in this place that doesn’t know how to do something as simple as what just happened.

Kevin, it just broke him. He was able to weep. And what was that? Just a hug. Now none of us can say we don’t know how to support. Can we? God help us. Hallelujah. That’s so beautiful. That was one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen. Hallelujah.

Freshly Apply the Blood

January 7, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

I just heard the Spirit of the Lord say, there’s something passing by your life and you need to be behind the blood. It’s like that fateful night in Egypt when the death angel was passing. The prophet said, “Put the blood on the doorposts and the mantel, so that when he sees the blood, he will pass over.”

The Spirit of the Lord just quickened in my heart that there’s some things passing through your life. I don’t know who you are. It might be a dozen or two dozen of you. It might be all of you. But the Spirit of the Lord just put into my heart that there’s some things passing through your life and over and around your life, and you need to be behind the Blood.

I know your children of God, but sometimes we just need to freshly apply the Blood. Sometimes we need to just freshly plead the Blood of Jesus. There’s power and there’s deliverance; There’s holy protection in that Blood. We’re going to agree together right now in prayer that the Blood would just be freshly applied…(Tongues)… so that every one of these problems and hardships and doubts and fears that’s passing through your life, that when the Blood is recognized, that the fear has to go on, that the doubt has to go on, that the depression has to go on, that whatever is hindering you has to pass over and go on about its business.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, we ask, for a fresh application of the Blood. We ask, oh Father, that You’d let us come under the Blood again this morning, just as fresh as it was the night we repented, just as fresh as it was when it flowed down Calvary. We claim that Blood to cover us. (Tongues.) I see doubt shrinking. I see sin shrinking. I see fear recessing. I can see it receding. In the Name of Jesus. The things that are troubling you have to go away from you. They have to pull from you when they see the Blood.

Dig for the Treasures

January 9, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

Yea, for the Lord would say unto thee this night, yea, I have seen thee like the prospector of old. Yea, I have seen thee as you have taken out the pick axe, saith the Lord, and you’ve began to pick away at the mountain.

Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, I see that it is in your desire; it is in your heart to find the vein of gold, saith the Lord, yea, the priceless treasures that I have for you. Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, I call unto thee this night. Do not be weary, saith the Lord, with the flakes. Do not be weary, saith the Lord, with the little pieces, the little jewels.

For the Lord would say unto thee, if thou wouldest continue to dig, yea, if you would continue to chip away at the rock, saith the Lord, yea, I have reserved for thee a vein of gold, saith the Lord. It is wide and it is deep.

Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, it is costly and of great value. Yea, the Lord would remind thee, My children, it is easy to be weary in the labor, yea, for your backs become sore, saith the Lord, and your muscles become tense and tired, at the digging and the digging.

But yea, the Lord would say unto thee this night, continue to dig and continue to pick away and hack away, saith the Lord, at the mountain. For I have reserved for thee a treasure that fadeth not away.

And yea, the Lord would say unto thee, it is not afar off, saith the Lord, but it is near unto thee, saith God. If thou wouldest continue to labor, yea I will strengthen your back. Yea, I will strengthen your arms and shoulders, saith the Lord. Do not be weary in this hour. And whatever you do, My children, do not sit down.

For yea the Lord would say unto thee, underneath the surface there is a supply; there is revelation that you’ve not known; there is overcoming victory that you’ve not known; there are blessings untold and leadership that you have not had before. Yea, I call unto thee this night. Pick, pick, saith the Lord.

And when you get weary, don’t quit, yea, but find a place to pan and to sift and to sort through that which you have already picked out of the mountain. For yea, the Lord would say unto thee, you have missed jewels. You’ve missed gold. You’ve missed rubies and diamonds, saith the Lord, in the debris that’s already been picked out of the mountain. So when you cannot pick, when you cannot dig, go back, go back, saith the Lord, and sift through again that which you have already picked out. For the Lord… (Tongues.)

For the Lord would say unto thee, I have reserved even the riches and rubies and diamonds and glorious treasures of revelation for you, and you’ve missed them. Go back. Go back and sift through. And in finding them it will encourage and strengthen you, and again you shall pick up the pick, and you shall pick up the shovel, and you shall dig for more, for I have treasure for thee, saith the Lord.

Hallelujah. (Tongues.) Praise the Lord. (Turn this up.) (Tongues.) Hallelujah. (Little more.) Hallelujah. (Tongues.) Let’s lift our hands to the Lord right now. Hallelujah. Somebody said, “But I’m not looking for diamonds. I’m not looking for rubies.”

I tell you, that’s just language that the Lord uses so that we can associate the value of it and the costliness of it. But I want you to know, the treasure is not in diamonds and rubies. It’s in peace if you want peace. It’s in encouragement if you want encouragement. It’s in revelation if you desire revelation. It’s in deliverance if you need deliverance. It’s healing if you need healing. Whatever you need, whatever you have need of, that’s what the Lord has for us. And it’s very valuable. Come on, let’s praise Him. Very valuable, very costly.

Commit to Dig

January 9, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

Before the Lord gave me that word, I had a vision. And I saw the old pack mule. I didn’t know what I was seeing or what it was for. I hadn’t received the word yet. But I saw the old pack mule, and he was loaded down with shovels and axes and bags. I saw the pans strapped onto his saddle, to his side. I could see that he was loaded down. He was going around the trail, headed up somewhere in the mountains. And I didn’t know what it meant. Couldn’t imagine what it meant. But now when the Lord gave the word, I know. Dig. Hallelujah.

Dig in your personal time. Dig in the altar. Dig when you come into the Presence of the Lord, for there are treasures that we’ve never overturned. Hallelujah. Glory, glory. There’s not one person here that doesn’t need something from the Lord. If you need something, hold up your hand. Well, whatever that is, that’s what He’s got. Whatever you have need of, that’s what He has. Hallelujah. Oh… (Tongues.)

Let’s just commit to dig. Let’s just tell the Lord, “Lord, we want to keep digging. We want to keep digging, even when our backs are tired and sore, when our muscles ache.” How many of you have had some aching spiritual backs, some aching spiritual muscles? You dig and dig, and you don’t see the results. You try and you try and you still don’t feel like you want to feel. Oh, but the Lord said if you’ll just dig a little deeper, if you’ll just push the extra mile (Hallelujah), you’ll overturn the treasure. Hallelujah.

This Day I have Exalted You in the Eyes of the People

January 14, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jeffier Propst

And for my pastor. You know, when the Lord spoke to you and told you, says, “I will exalt you in the eyes of the people,” I was praying for you and He said, “Today, not tomorrow. This day I have.”

Swords with Different Handles

January 14, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Sister Jan Salvador

As we were praising the Lord, I could see us all with swords lifted. But the Lord was taking them. And the handles were all different. And He was placing handles to fit in the hands that they belonged to.

Time for Another Level

January 14, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

But as I began to pray in the other room, I had a vision. And in this vision, my grandmother was standing before me. It was different than the last time. I didn’t see it as a bedroom where I was or the den, my office where I was. It was just a vision of her standing there in a beautiful dress.

And she looked at me, and this is what she said. She said, “It’s time.”

She looked away, and she looked back. And I said, “Time for what?”

She said, “It’s time for you to take us to another level.” I don’t know why she said, “Us.” But she said, “It’s time for you to take us to another level.” Hallelujah.

Opening Our Senses to the Heavenly Realm

January 14, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Jonathan Hollis

I feel that the Lord desires tonight to open deaf ears, ears that have never heard in the Spirit. The Lord desires to open blind eyes, eyes that have never seen into the realm of the heavenlies. He said, “I desire to open those eyes.” He wants to touch vocal chords tonight. He wants to touch voices that have never spoken in the realm of Glory, voices that have never spoken for Him, voices that have never prophesied.

He said, “I want to touch new feet. I want to touch feet in a new way, feet that have never stepped into those realms, feet that have never stepped into the promises. I want to touch feet.” Hallelujah, hallelujah. Let Him touch you tonight in that way. If any of it applies to you, just let Him touch you. Reach up and claim it tonight. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.

Possessors of Everything Before You

January 14, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Beverly Skipworth

The Lord says He’s called you to be possessors, possessors of everything that stands before you. For He says He has given us all things.

Unholy Intercession

January 14, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Carmen Lanier

I kept feeling like I could wait, but the Lord won’t let me. This morning when Brother Greeley was asking a prayer request for his father, the Lord brought something into my heart about unholy intercession. Tonight when Brother Kary was talking about the unity and lining up, it was like the Lord started speaking more.

But I know that the Lord is the one that ordained and gave intercession. And the Lord is the one that ordained and gave unity. But the enemy has used all of those things, and he’s perverted them. When Brother Greeley said that about his father, about how that unholy intercession was coming against his father, I saw a force so strong.

But I realized those people, even though they don’t agree with one another; they don’t have anything in common, but hate has caused those people to come together to destroy that man and for what he stands for. He’s righteous. But it was like the Lord was showing me that it’s the opposite that’s happening with us. Instead of us being able to focus on Him, we’re focusing on all the things that keep us apart.

But He was showing me the key there is, if we can get our eyes on Jesus, just like those people are focusing on one thing in a bad way… He’s perverting what God gave to this earth and what He gave to the Bride of Christ. But I know that there’s a power. But the enemy’s using it against us. I see… When we look at one another, we see differences where we should be seeing Christ.

Form-Fitting the Sword to Our Hand

January 14, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jan Salvador

When I was speaking this morning, I don’t know that… I’m usually too short on words. I don’t know if everybody understood or grasped what I was saying when I was seeing the swords and different handles.

But the Lord was taking handles out of people, and He was putting a new handle in that was form-fitted to their hand. And it was… You’ve used the sword before, but it was never comfortable. And that was new to me.

Disbursement of the Load

January 14, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word Shared by Sister Carmen Lanier

[Ed., Jonathan asks Carmen Lanier to come and share something she had shared with him earlier.]

I was reading. Oh Lord, help me to remember it the way I… If I can say it… It was talking about the changing of the guard. It was talking about a new anointing. And it was talking about how that those that had been in the old anointing, the generals and the Moseses, it was not like they were being replaced.

But what was happening, because the load had been so great for so long on these people, that there was many Joshuas going out to help with the battle. But it was like it was a disbursement of it. It wasn’t… It was a change, but it was a disbursement at the same time. But it was like no more weariness was going to be with the load any more. It was going to be a disbursed load, and that the Joshuas were to carry it. Promotion in the Kingdom…

Opening the Reservoirs

January 16, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Jonathan Hollis

When Sister Joyce was just testifying, the Lord reminded me of a vision He showed me just before the service. I was down praying, and I saw several different reservoirs. The Lord just revealed to me that that was work that was in those reservoirs, and He was about to open it.

Finances Are Not a Hindrance

January 21, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophecy given through Brother Jonathan Hollis

And yea the Lord would say unto thee this day, do you not know that finances are not a hindrance unto Me, saith the Lord? No, finances do not hinder Me from working. For yea, I shall work without your finances. I shall work without them, saith the Lord. Yea, it’s your unbelief that hinders me.

Yea, when you trust in your finances, that is what hinders Me, saith the Lord. Trust no longer in your finances. Trust no longer in your bank account. For yea, they shall not always be there, saith the Lord. But I am with you always, saith God.

And yea, I can work, for yea, I have the cattle of a thousand hills. And I possess all the gold and silver, saith the Lord. And I shall work, saith God. I shall do that which you think is impossible. I shall flow, saith the Lord, into you. I shall flow into your bank accounts. I shall flow into your finances. I shall flow into your pocketbooks. And you shall know me, saith the Lord, and you shall know the miracles that I shall do for thee.

Yea, I shall be able to send thee unto nations, saith God, and you shall go on faith. For yea, the finances shall not be there when you look for them, but I shall send you. And you shall know the miracles. And you shall know the keeping power. And it shall be there when you need it, saith the Lord.

A Gate to Carry the Glory to the Nations

January 21, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophecy given through Brother Kary Payne

As the sun shines upon the earth this day, so does my Glory shine upon You, My children. Lift up your heads, oh ye gates, and let them not hang down, as the enemy would have you to look down upon the things of the earth.

But lift them up as My Glory shines upon you. For I desire to use you as a gate to carry that Glory to the nations, and yea, even to your own back yard and your own neighborhood. Lift up your heads, oh ye gates, as My Glory shines upon you, saith the Lord.

Yes, Jesus is His Name.

This Is the Day for You to Press In

January 21, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Message in Tongues given through Sister Helen Burgess & Interpretation given through Brother Greeley

This is the day, saith the Lord. This is the day for you to press in. This is the day for you to press in, not wait for someone else to hand it to you, but this is the day for you to press in. Then when you press in, then you can rejoice and be glad in Me, saith the Lord. For I will pour out blessing upon you as you press in and get from Me today.

Let the River Take You

January 21, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Jonathan Hollis

I’m seeing people right now in the Spirit standing on the banks of the River. And I see a great wave washing over. And it’s catching those who are standing on the banks who would come in. It’s washing and it’s catching them, and it’s taking them out in the Spirit. Hallelujah.

If you can’t get in the River, let it take you. Let it come to you. Let it come to you. If you can’t come to the River, let it come to you and bring you in. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. But yield yourself to the Lord. Yield yourself to the Lord right now. Hallelujah, hallelujah…

The Anointing Is upon Thee

January 21, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Brother Jonathan Hollis

The Lord told me to declare over you that it is upon thee. It is upon thee. The anointing that you’ve asked Me for is upon thee. Yea, the anointing for nations. The anointing is upon thee, saith the Lord. It’s not coming. It is no longer coming, saith the Lord. It is no longer in the channel. It is here. Be not afraid to speak. Be not afraid to open your mouth and declare.

For yea, the anointing is upon thee. And that which you open your mouth and declare, it shall come to pass, saith the Lord. Be not afraid of man. Be not afraid of beasts, saith the Lord. Be not afraid of devils that should stand in your way. For I shall bring every word that I have spoken to thee and through thee to pass, saith the Lord. Do not think that ye shall be still any longer. Do not think you shall be still and stand still any longer, saith the Lord.

But you shall go. And yea the finances and that which you need to go shall be upon thee. It shall be with you, saith the Lord. And I shall cause men to give unto thee, men that you didn’t even know of, saith the Lord, men that you didn’t even know. Yea, I shall cause them to give it unto thy bosom, saith the Lord. Hallelujah, hallelujah.

And I shall provide for thy family. And I shall provide for thy ministry. And yea, I shall provide for all thy needs, thy physical being. The strength shall be with thee, saith the Lord. Hallelujah. I feel like the Lord is saying He’s already in the arrangements. He’s already in the arrangements. Hallelujah.

Those Who Have Come Against Will See the Truth

January 21, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Sister Annie Jones

And I believe that this is the word of the Lord for you, Brother Shelley. He gave it strongly this morning to me. You’re going to be used in that service for some people there, not for all of them, but for some. And you know the one I’m talking about who has been calling, talking to you on the phone, especially for him.

Because I believe that time when he came one time out to your service there, how he was prayed for, how he was really coming down on his knees… You remember that time. And I believe, Brother Shelley, this is what the Lord told me. He’s going to use you there mightily for that reason. And you’re going to be so strong. And you’re going to be so anointed to do that, to give the exact words, that some of that church will see the truth for this hour who have come against you.

But now see that the blind eyes go open. I believe that with all my heart, and I could almost say that’s thus saith the Lord, because it was strong all day on my heart to tell you this, Brother Shelley. And it was confirmation here from Brother Jonathan when he was prophesying over you, with that great anointing you get. That was a confirmation to you. That is what I felt all day.

And I thank the Lord today for that, because it has been a burden for me all those years too for Brother Hildebrant’s church. That’s where I came out from that time. But thank the Lord He brought me in this marvelous light, and that I can hear this. But Sister Wittmeier, through her prayers and her faithfulness, this will be accomplished in Edmonton. And I thank the Lord today for that.

Strong Anointing

Vision directed to Brother Shelley

Vision given by Sister Jackson

The Anointing is strong upon this man. It’s strong upon this man. I see you going into foreign countries, pastor. People that are bound with demonic spirits, I mean really bound with them, I see you casting them out. Crazy spirits, I see you casting them out. I see people that’s even dead, and all you do is call them, and they come alive. I see it. I see you calling them alive. (Tongues.)

I see you calling cancer out. I see you calling AIDS out, sending it back to the pit from whence it came. I see the blind eyes being opened, I mean people that are really blind. Deaf ears, people that really can’t hear, I see you calling it through your mouth, and it’s just happening.

Many times you ain’t going to have to lay hands on folks. You just going to call it out your mouth, and it’s going to happen. I see it. God’s done used you in those areas before. He’s going to use you even greater now. (Tongues.)

Joshua Anointing

January 21, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jeffier Propst

It blesses my heart so to hear that God’s children are in one mind and one accord, and that, to know that Brother Shelley’s flock is lifting him up in prayer. Because yesterday I was praying, and I was thinking about Brother Shelley. And I was thinking about things that God had promised him. And I all I could feel was tired, tired, tired, tired, tired. I said, “God.” I said, “That’s not what you promised that man.” I said, “You promised him a few hours of sleep at night, and he was going to be ready to get up and go.”

And I said, “Lord, the spirit of Joshua’s resting so heavy upon him, but it doesn’t have to be a heavy yoke. You said Your yoke is burden, ‘and My burden’s light.'” And I kept on reading on in Joshua where it said that never had God hearkened unto a man’s words as he did Joshua that day. And I said, “Yes, Lord.” That anointing that’s on Joshua rests upon you, sir.

Thank You, Lord. Oh, thank You, Lord. I’m so thankful that he doesn’t have to be afraid. Because Joshua went forth. He did everything that the Lord told him to do. He left nothing undone. And I know that as God sends Brother Shelley forth that this thing will also be in his life, that he will leave nothing undone. I just thank the Lord for that.

The Wall Has to Fall

January 21, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Greeley

Sometimes we doubt. Sometimes we wonder how that Jericho’s walls are going to fall. We wonder what our shout is going to do. We wonder what’s going to happen when we walk around Jericho’s walls, but when the Captain of the Lord’s host appears, all the doubt vanishes. All of the doubt leaves. (Tongues)

I feel inspired to tell some of the rest of us, tonight, some of the rest of us are going to see the Captain of the Lord’s host, as well. Some of us are going to see the midst that surrounds Him, the glory light that surrounds Him. And some of us are just going to feel that awesome presence. That awesome presence that He ushers in when He steps around. When He steps in the building.

There some of us tonight that the wall looks more than thirty feet tall. There some of us that it looks more than eighteen feet wide. There’s some of us that we feel like the devil watches every move that we make. And he does.

The Lord is letting me know, tonight, that no matter how wide the wall, no matter how high the wall, when He steps into the situation, when He steps into the circumstance, when we offer ourselves, when we bow ourselves at His feet, when we present ourselves in meekness and humbleness, when we present our situation, He let us know that those walls have to crumble. We may not have the strength to shout. We may not even have the wind to blow the trumpet, but when He steps into this situation, that wall has to fall. The wall has to fall. The wall has to (Tongues).

Another Level

Prophetic Word directed to Intercessors

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jackson

For every one of you that touched him, God’s going to bless you for your obedience. Another level He’s going take you to. For every one of you that prayed for him, laugh at the devil, honey. God’s going to take you higher. For every one of you that pray for him, God’s going to take you to another level. Hallelujah. You keep praising Him. That’s why you feel so good in your body. Hallelujah. (Tongues.)

God’s taking this church to another level. Don’t you all change. Just go higher. Keep loving each other. Keep praying for your leader. Every time you pray for him, God takes you higher. Thank You, Jesus. (Tongues.)

Things Falling into Place

January 21, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Jonathan Hollis

Hallelujah, hallelujah… As I’m standing here, I can see in the Spirit, things falling into place like dominoes. As one thing falls into place, it causes another thing and another thing and another thing and another thing. And the Lord said those who He’s spoken to that they’re going places. And I see the Lord saying that even people who don’t know that they’re going this year, but they’re going. Hallelujah.

But I see those things falling into place one right after another, one right after another. Oh, hallelujah. The Lord said don’t even worry about jobs. Don’t even worry about arrangements and agendas that you already have. The Lord’s going to work them out. Hallelujah. Because this is the year of going in. This is the year of possessing. Hallelujah. And the Lord’s going to make a way. Hallelujah, hallelujah…

January 21, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision Directed to Brother Shelley

Vision given to Jonathan Hollis

Hallelujah, hallelujah. As we were praying for Brother Shelley, I saw the Lord carrying him out into the wheels that Ezekiel saw, out into those wheels of Anointing, out into those realms of the Spirit. The Lord’s carrying him out into the wheels. Hallelujah.

Declare the Word of the Lord from Zion…

Great Physician Massaging the Heart Back to Life

January 28, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I could see in the… (Tongues.) Oh, hallelujah. I could see in the Spirit as those words were coming out of my mouth, as it were, the hand of a physician reaching in. You know, there is that time when there… They often use the fibulator to send that electric current to the muscle of the heart, to stimulate it to squeeze it again, to pump again. But there are times in emergency situations on the field where there is no fibulator.

Just now they’re just passing laws where every airplane carrier that goes for so many hours on journeys has to have these fibulators on board. I saw the symbol of one on the airplane we were flying on. It had a heart and a lightning bolt through it, to show the stewardesses where the fibulator was.

But on the field, the chest sometimes, in war and battle, or in different situations, a cut would just be made, no anesthetic, nothing. Just a cut would be made right into the chest, and some brave doctor would reach his hand right into the cavity of the chest and take in his hand the heart and begin to squeeze it. Of course, first of all they would try the pushing on the chest. It’s the same purpose. They’re trying to get that heart to beat.

In the hospital they use the big fibulator machine to shock the body off. But there are extreme cases where the chest has been opened up and a man… Even a… Often times I’ve read, in heart surgery in days gone by, before technology was to the place where it is today, the heart would stop beating during surgery, and the doctor…

I read not too long ago where a man had stomach surgery, and the heart stopped beating. And the doctor reached up. Now the incision was here. But the doctor reached up in the body. Can you imagine? Up under the ribs, I mean up in the body and grabbed the heart and began to massage it until life came. As I was speaking those words, I could see the hand of the great Physician (Tongues) desiring this morning to massage life back into your heart. Hallelujah.

Releasing Faith

January 28, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Jonathan Hollis

Oh, know, saith the Lord, that as you praise Me, this night I am releasing faith into your life, saith the Lord. A faith that shall launch you forth in the Spirit. Yea, a faith that you shall call those things that are not as though they were.

And you shall know Me in a new, saith the Lord. Yea, you shall know me. You shall say… You shall speak and watch it come to pass. Yea, you shall speak on My behalf, saith the Lord. And you shall know that I shall do it, saith the Most High God. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah.

Soon You’ll Be Thanking God for What You Are Now Asking For

January 28, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

I could hear the spirit of the Lord speaking in my heart as you were singing that. I could hear the Spirit of the Lord speaking in my heart, that the thing that you’re asking for tonight, very soon you’ll be thanking Him for it. Hallelujah. The very thing that you’re asking for tonight, I could see that you’ll soon be thanking Him for it.

Hallelujah. So why don’t we just praise Him in advance tonight? Could we just lift a praise in advance?

Lord, I thank You for the greater Glory. Lord, I thank You for the greater Glory. Hallelujah. Lord, I thank You for more of Jesus. (Tongues.) Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Let your heart give it out. Let your heart praise Him. Lift your voice with me right now. Don’t let the devil deter you. Hallelujah. Oh. Greater Glory, greater Glory, greater Glory. “Oh, that that you’re ask Me for, you’re soon going to praise Me for.” (Tongues.)

Worthy of Perfect Praise

January 28, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Spiritual Song, Sung by Sister Annie Jones

Why don’t you give Him the glory?

And praise His wonderful name?

For He will pour out His glory upon you

And you will never be the same.

For He is worthy of a perfect praise.

For He is worthy of a perfect praise.

For He will pour out His glory upon you

And you will never be the same.

Yield Yourself to Me

January 30, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophecy given through Sister Beverly Skipworth

My children, I declare unto you this night, I am with thee. Loose your burdens unto Me, My children. I already know about them. Loose them unto Me. Yield yourself to Me… [Unclear audio]

For I am here. I am the same yesterday, today, and forever. I am that I am. I declare unto you, I am the God of today. Yield yourself to me, yield yourself to me. I will help you and I will strengthen you. You will find new strength. You will find new joy. Yield yourself unto Me.

In Transition the Sap Flowing Up

January 30, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Jan Salvador

God was showing me that when we were in that transition, the sap in the root of the branches was beginning to flow up. And all I could see was just pussy willows, and was beautiful, and I thought, “Oh, Jonathan, don’t stop, Jonathan.” Because I wanted to encourage him that God’s doing something in all of that. Even though, sometimes, we don’t feel it. I just thank Him for it.

Touched in a Way that You Are Never the Same

February 4, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

For the Lord would say unto thee this morning, I desire, yea, I desire to reveal Myself to thee, saith the Lord. Yea, not one of you came into this place thinking in your heart that you didn’t know Me. But the Lord would say unto thee, many of you don’t know Me. For yea, there are things about Me that I desire to reveal unto thee that you have never known. Yea, there are mysteries in My Word, and there are love secrets, saith the Lord, that I desire to pour into thee.

So the Lord would say unto thee, be humble in My Presence. Yea, don’t trust in that which you have heard, or that which you’ve been taught, saith the Lord, but come and let Me reveal Myself to you.

For the Lord would say unto thee, I am not in man’s traditions. Yea, I am not in man’s ideas, saith the Lord, but I am God, and I stand alone. And I desire to reveal Myself to thee, saith the Lord, in ways that thou has never dreamed of. Come and taste of the Lord.

Yea, I desire all of you this morning, yea, I desire all of you, saith the Lord. All of your ideas, surrender to Me. All of your rights, all of your wills, surrender to Me. For I the Lord thy God would say unto thee this day, I desire to do a new thing in you. Think not strange that I have brought you this way.

For yea the Lord would say unto thee, it is My desire to touch you this day. Yea, even as I touched Jacob, saith the Lord, and he never walked the same again, yea the Lord would say unto thee, I desire to touch you today, that when you would leave this house, you would never walk the same, no, never talk the same, no, never think the same, saith the Lord.

For I desire to reveal unto thee a new way of living. Come. Come and let me touch you by my spirit. Trust not in that which you think you know, but surrender it to Me. And you shall know Me. Yea, you shall know Me this day, saith the Lord.

Surrender to the Path

February 4, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

The Lord is telling me over and over again in my spirit, He has chosen the path. He has chosen the path. Many of you are knowing great resistance because you’re not walking in the path that the Lord has chosen for you. And if today you would surrender to that path that God has for you, the program that He has for you, if you just say one great big surrender, if you could just shout one great big, “Yes,” to the Lord, the resistance that you have known…

Some of you have been drawn like a magnet. You can almost feel something drawing you in another direction. But the Lord is saying if you’d just surrender to His path… He has chosen the path that He wants you to walk. And if you’ll surrender to that, you’ll find a new road. In fact, you’ll find a new life. Your finances will change. Your walk with God will change if you’ll just surrender to the path. Many of you know the Lord is speaking to your spirit. We just want to make a big surrender to Him, bigger than ever before.


I keep getting in my spirit this is a special day for somebody. I don’t know who you are. If I did, I might be tempted to say something. But this is a special day for somebody. God desires to direct your feet back into the path that He’s chosen for you.

Fresh Oil Flowing Down

February 4, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Spiritual Song, Sung by Brother Jonathan Hollis

Fresh oil flowing down from the Throne,

Fresh oil anointing me,

Fresh oil flowing down from the Throne,

Fresh oil, cover me.

Sweet oil flowing down from the Throne,

Sweet oil anointing me,

Sweet oil flowing down from the Throne,

Sweet oil, cover me…

Spiritual Blindness Covering Peru

February 4, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given by Brother Shelley

When I was praying in the night last night, I had a vision. And I saw these brothers moving in Peru. And I saw several people standing there who were looking at them, and they were staring at them, but I could see in my spirit that they weren’t seeing them. They were staring at them. Their eyes were fixed on them, but they weren’t seeing them. And the Lord spoke to me and said, “They’re blind.”

And when He said, “They’re blind,” I spoke out in this vision in the night, and I said, “In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, receive your sight.” And the Spirit of the Lord came all over me. And I began to ask the Lord, “Lord, are You speaking about the natural blindness of your people?” And He can, because He’s just as able to open those eyes.

But He said, “I’m speaking to you about spiritual blindness that covers the nation of Peru.” Hallelujah. But I believe that it’s already started. I could feel in my spirit that a hole was being punched through the blindness. There’s a light from the Presence of the Throne that’s piercing the darkness over Peru. Hallelujah. Hallelujah

Somebody said, “That doesn’t mean anything to me.” It would if you were getting ready to leave your family and go to Peru, where you’ve never been before, where you don’t know anybody personally there, like these two brothers are, it would mean something to you then. Heavens are opening over Peru. Somebody say that. The heavens are opening over Peru. Hallelujah.

And the Lord sowed one other thing into my spirit. I’ve got to hurry and preach here. But the Lord sowed one other thing into my spirit. And He said, “Pray for those who would try to stop it.” Because I’m telling you, God’s about to do something, and it’s not going to be advisable for those men to get in God’s way. So I started praying for their safety, for their lives that God would preserve them, that He would help them, that He would protect them, because I’ve got a feeling if they try to get in the way of revival among the Bride in that nation, God knows how to move them.

Serious Time for the Work of God

February 4, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

I just felt something drop into my spirit. I almost vomited. It hit me so intense… Excuse me. Oh. Sorry. I just felt something drop over me and into my inner being. And it came so heavy and so intense, and this is what it said, “It said we haven’t taken that serious enough.” And I…

If there’s one part of ministry I hate, it’s finance. I’m not going to preach to you. I’m not going to condemn you or embarrass you or make you feel bad, but I was not thinking on this.

I gave more than I thought I could and I wasn’t thinking on this. I have no idea what went in. I know Benjamin had a handful. But something dropped into my heart, we didn’t take that serious enough.

I’m going to give you another opportunity. Please, if you are offended, don’t be offended at me, because I had no idea that it was going to happen that way, but it came so heavy, I thought I… I know that’s… If there’d a been visitors, I probably wouldn’t have described it that way.

But it hit my inner being so heavy; I thought I would just vomit. And God hasn’t dealt with me that way too many times. But let’s consider it again. Many may have done sacrificially, but I feel like a lot of us just brush it off, and we just let it go on to somebody else. This is a serious time for the work of God.

Going into the Water & Being Baptized

February 4, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given by Sister Annie Jones

I was standing. I saw water. I don’t know if it was a small lake or a river. Anyway, it was not big water. But I could see standing people on the side, looking towards the water. There was some of them, they had the look on their face like they didn’t understand, and others, they were going into the water. And I saw Brother Greeley and Brother Kary standing in the water to baptizing people. Hallelujah. Praise You, Jesus.

Revealing the Master Plan

February 4, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Carmen Lanier

But I know today I’ve seen in the Spirit more than once, I’ve seen those walls of Jericho. And this morning I was seeing them. The Lord said, “Fret not because of the walls.” And I know that the Lord is exposing and bringing all these things out for a reason at this time. But I can’t help but think of one thought. It’s been about two years ago.

I know we had been praying for the Lord to give us a master plan. And the Lord finally said that it wasn’t time for the master plan to come. But I know that when Joshua was looking at those walls is when the captain of the host appeared to him. And that’s when that master plan came, and that’s when Joshua fell on his face. So I know that it has to be a pivotal time that we’re at, and that God is moving.

But I want to thank Him for what He’s done in my life through the preaching for this about Jericho. And I couldn’t help but think this morning that forty years before that, those twelve spies had gone in. And ten of them came back with not so good of a report. And I know the Lord destroyed them, but I know they had to have spoken.

And I know that there had to been whisperings and murmurings that went throughout those people about what they saw. They might not have wanted to speak out loud, but there had to be times that they whispered about what they saw in Canaan. And I know in part of the people that crossed, there was fear.

But I want to thank the Lord. And I almost got tickled when I thought about it, the way God things to you. But one of the things in the master plan, He told them when they walked around, He said “Not to open your mouth.” And I couldn’t help but think, “If I was walking around those walls, I would have been saying, ‘How, God, are we going to get those walls down?'” So I know the Lord is doing something. And I know that He is going to reveal that master plan.

And I know that Jericho represents different things to different people. Jericho may be a husband that won’t serve God. Jericho may be a situation from your past that the enemy will make you think you can’t get past. And Jericho may be a think that keeps people from stepping into their positions. But no matter what it is, it’s fear and intimidation. And obedience to the Lord is going to bring those walls down. And I want to thank the Lord for it.

Ascend the Mountain of Praise

February 11, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Sister Carmen Lanier

I heard the Spirit of the Lord say to me to ascend the mountain of praise. And when the Lord spoke that, it was like I heard the spirit of man say, “I can’t ascend.” And it was like we were asking God to come down to where we were. But God said He had already came down, and if we would let go…

And then suddenly I saw a vision of a hot air balloon sitting on the ground. And the stakes and the strings that tied it down are the weights and the cares of our life. And God said, “If you would let go of those things, if you’d pull them into that little basket…” It’s like that fire that’s within us would be like that hot air balloon; we would be carried up into the Presence of the Lord to where He is.

Be Faithful in That Which You Already Have

February 18, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

For the Lord would say unto thee, my children, this day, it is My desire, saith the Lord, to give you that which you desire. But yea, the Lord would say unto thee, first, before I can give unto you the things that you desire of Me, yea the Lord would say unto thee, be faithful, be faithful in that which you have. Yea, be faithful in that which I have given you, saith the Lord. Yea, I have heard many of you say that, “If this money comes into my hands, I’m going to give it into the Kingdom. If this works out for me, I’m going to do this with it; I’m going to build that with it.”

But the Lord would say unto thee this morning, I challenge you, My people. The Lord would say, be faithful in that that I’ve already given unto you, saith the Lord. For if you cannot be faithful in the things that I have placed within your hands, how is it that you think you would be faithful? in the things that you have not.

Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, be faithful in that which I’ve already sowed. Be faithful in the gifts that I’ve already given. Be faithful in obedience, saith the Lord. Be faithful in finances that I’ve already made available to you. And yea, I shall give you the greater gifts. Yea, I shall give you the greater finances.

Yea the Lord would say unto thee, I shall supply all of your needs according to My riches in Glory. For yea, I have a source that cannot be exhausted, saith the Lord. Yea, I have an account that can never be overdrawn.

For yea the Lord would say unto thee, the earth is Mine and the fullness thereof. My Spirit doth call unto thee, look unto Me and be faithful stewards over that which you have. Do not hide it in the ground, saith the Lord, but put it to work for my kingdom. For yea, in doing so you shall reap greater rewards, saith the Lord. Hallelujah

Look to Me as Their Source & Supply

February 18, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

When I was driving to church this morning, the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me and He said, “I want you to tell those people that stand before you this morning…” You’re standing before me. “I want you to tell them that they need to look to Me as their source and their supply, not to look to man.”

He spoke directly into my spirit and said for me to tell you, you don’t need to look to investments. You don’t need to look to anything. You look to Him. And God can use whatever He wants to use. Whatever He wants to use, He can use it. But He’ll not use it for you unless you look to Him.

Well That Seemed as a Tunnel

February 25, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

While we continue to worship the Lord just a moment, I wanted to share with you a vision that I had this morning while I was sitting here during the worship, or standing, I believe. During the worship in praise. It took me a while to be able to put it together enough to be able to share it. And I thought I would wait.

But I saw what looked like a tunnel. And I wasn’t sure what it was. My wife had told me last night when I got home from the youth meeting that she had spoken with her mother, and her mother had spoken with her grandmother. And that they had spoken to some relatives in Newfoundland, and they had so much snow, that down the driveway that, when you walked down the driveway it was like walking down a tunnel, because the snow was so tall.

That word “tunnel” was in my spirit all night long last night. And then when I saw this, I thought it was a tunnel. It was very dark and it seems to be quite round. When we think about a tunnel, as we were in Norway, we went through hundreds of tunnels. And when the road is at the bottom, it makes it flat. And the funnel is usually in an arch. But this tunnel was, it looked like completely round.

And I could see that it looked like brick or block or something was lining the tunnel, and it was very, very dark. There was almost no light at all. But as I moved in the tunnel toward, moved forward in the tunnel, there was just enough light with me that I could see the wall of the tunnel. And I could see what looked like moss or something growing on the brick of the tunnel.

When, as I started moving slowly, very, very slowly, and then it was a faster, almost a plunge into that tunnel. I kept having that feeling that you have in an elevator, where your stomach starts turning almost. You know, you feel like the bottom’s dropping out. I kept feeling that in the spirit, and I didn’t understand. If I was going straight ahead in the tunnel, why I kept feeling that dropping feeling. But when I got to the bottom, I could feel it growing increasingly damp, as I got to the end (I wanted to say) of the tunnel.

And when I got to the end, I stopped just in time. If I hadn’t stopped just in time, I would have plunged into water. And the Spirit of the Lord illuminated that tunnel, and it wasn’t a tunnel. It was a well. I want you to hear what I’m saying. What I thought was a tunnel of darkness, when I got to the bottom of that, or what I thought was the end of the tunnel, it was a wall of water before me. And I realized. (This is odd.) But I realized that the tunnel wasn’t going straight, it was going down. And I wasn’t in a tunnel. That dropping in my stomach that I was feeling in vision was the plunge of going down.

As soon as I stopped, I realized it was water before me. And the Spirit of God illuminated that water and I said, “I’m not in a tunnel. I’m in a well.” I share that for you this morning only because the Lord impressed in my heart, “Somebody here will know what that means.” It’s going to mean something to you. I believe we could certainly use it for the Body, but somebody’s going to pick up on that.

What looks like a dark tunnel, what looks like something with no light… You know, we coined the phrase, we’ve used the cliché here so many times, because of the dark trial that we suffered some years ago, when God kept reminding us there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

But I was in a tunnel where there was no light. There didn’t seem to be a light at the end. And maybe that’s how you could feel, or perhaps that’s how you have felt this morning. But I want to share with you, the tunnel is not a tunnel. It’s a well. And you know the Bible speaks to us about the joy of salvation being brought forth from the wells of God. Those living waters. Hallelujah.

And the Lord is showing me even as I speak, that that water became illuminated because it’s not darkness to you. What appears to be darkness to you now is going to bring you to a Source of Living and illuminated Waters. Hallelujah. The Waters of God. We thank the Lord this morning. Would you thank Him, because we can all use that? We could all use that in our lives. Hallelujah.

Father, I thank You that it’s not a tunnel. I thank you that’s a well. Hallelujah. And I thank you that at the bottom of the well, hallelujah, there’s a beautiful Source of Living Water.

Wonderful Jesus. (Tongues)

Worship with me just a moment.

So many miracles…

You see, it’s not a dead end at all. It’s not a dead end at all. It’s a bottomless well. Hallelujah. The sources of the Lord are bottomless. Amen? The Rivers of the Lord have no end. Hallelujah. Oh, but He just goes on and on and on and on for all eternity. There’s no bottom in the well. Hallelujah.

So if the devil’s caused you to feel like it’s a dead end, the Lord would say to you this morning, you’re not facing a dead end. But you’re facing a bottomless well, hallelujah, that goes on and on and on in the depths and the riches of His Spirit. Hallelujah. Praise the Lord. Hallelujah. We desire to know the depth. We desire to know the riches of Your well. Hallelujah. Spring forth in us.

Leap of Growth

February 25, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jeffier Propst

Brother Shelley, I hate to come on the platform. Do you mind coming down here? Sometimes I can just be reading and a certain thing will just pop out. And then I’ll pray about it and then the Lord will add to it.

And I was praying yesterday and I happened to remember Brother Shelley talking about… Oh, go into that next plane. Go into higher. And as I thought about that, I see him. And we… Oh, I seen him take that leap, a leap of growth. That’s what it was. Lord, when we go to another plane it is a leap of growth. Oh. And if you worry any at all, Brother Shelley, any at all, He said, you’re going to be hid. Hid from the scourge of the tongue.

[Unclear audio] And the way it looked, a scourge is any instrument that’s used to hurt or to cause death. I said, Oh, thank You, Lord. Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing. (Tongues) Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing. Oh. (Tongues) Oh, I thank You, Lord. Nothing’s going to stop what God’s got. And as he grows, we’re going to get to grow too.

[Ed., Talking to Brother Jonathan]

“Put your hand on his chest.” (Tongues). Hallelujah.

Jonathan Hollis:

And nothing shall by any means hinder. Nothing shall by any means hinder. Nothing shall by any means hinder. Hallelujah. (Tongues)

I Told You Not to Limit Me

February 27, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

And one other thing. As I was sitting on the platform tonight, something came in my spirit concerning the selling of this building. And I’ve tried to just put it so far in God’s hands that I don’t even think about it or worry about it or even… I haven’t even really told the Lord how to do it, because since He spoke to me a few days ago about it, it kind of released something.

But I had been thinking a little bit during this service as I was praying before the service started. And I heard the voice of God. And I want to say this. Sometimes He speaks right in our spirit. We just know we’ve heard Him, right in our heart. We just know He has spoken.

But there are times that He speaks so powerfully that it almost would, you’d almost think that it was audible. It’s so powerful to you that you know it’s something you’re not thinking on. And I had had some thoughts as I knelt down there. And the Lord spoke to me in such a voice on the platform tonight and He said, “I told you not to limit Me.”

And I praise the Lord for that. I know that. I know I’m not supposed to limit God. You know you’re not supposed to limit God. But I appreciated that powerful voice so strong in my spirit that I thought I was getting it, almost getting it in my ear. “I told you not to limit Me.” Hallelujah.

And I was thinking about the selling of this building and how we had to sell this building so that we could do something else. That’s what I was thinking on. And God said again, “I told you not to limit Me.”

Ministering to the Indians

February 27, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I had the strangest vision today when I was meditating on the Lord this afternoon, almost dozing off. I had this strange vision. I’m having some strange ones lately, but God knows what they mean. But I saw myself in… And you know why I can tell them? Because I’m not the only one around here that has strange ones. I’m right at home.

Anyway, I saw myself in full Indian apparel, from the top of my head all the way to my feet. I had on… And I had on a full headdress. The thing that bothered me the most is, I was dancing with these Indians. I guess it was holy dance, but it looked a little Indian to me, you know, just kind of like this.

And this little Indian come from… He was just dressed… I know they don’t even dress that way now, you know, so… except for festivals or whatever. But here come this man out among them, and he walked over to me. And he said something to me that let me know that he was wanting to know the Lord. He wanted to know truth and hungry for God, and he felt like that the Lord had sent me to him.

And all of a sudden, he… As he was standing there fully dressed, not as fancy as I was, but he looked still Indian like the traditional Indian dress, all of a sudden, his clothes just changed. He had on blue jeans and a t-shirt, and he continued to converse with me. And a few more moments another man walked up, and I recognized it to be Keith, the Indian, my Indian friend in Alberta. So I know the Lord is going to do something.

The Word Will Go Forth

March 4, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Message in Tongues & Interpretation given through Sister Annie Jones

Hear, My little Bride, I have spoken. That Word will go forth to all the nations of the world. And I have chosen My servant to speak that Word. It will go to the far East, it will go all over the world. This Word has been spoken and it will be done, and there is no one can ever stop this Word because it has to go forth because I have a Bride all over the world, who has to be delivered.

And I have chosen My servant to do this for Me, because My Bride is hungry. She is all over the world, the world spread, and she will hear it even if it is done by radio broadcasting for now, because I speak that Word through My servant’s lips. It is My Voice will use his voice to speak that, that the Bride will hear it and be delivered, because this is the time. The time is near at hand, My children. Pray. Pray for your servant because the Word will go forth.

And I will give you strength, My son, to speak that Word. Don’t be afraid. There might be come many against you, but no one is able to stop that Word, to stop. That Word will go forth and will be spoken because I said, I the Lord of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob am the same today, yesterday and forever. I will speak it again till I lift My Bride from this world. It will go forth. Hallelujah.

Drowning of Young Man

March 11, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

Two more times this week I have seen that; I believe it’s that boy. I believe it’s that twenty-year-old boy that drowned. They tell me there were several hundred people searching for him yesterday in Harris County. I don’t know for sure if that’s who I’m seeing.

But I’ve seen two more flashes this week. And in the last one I saw this body trapped under a ledge of branches. The branches went across the water that way. It wasn’t on the edge. The branches went across the water that way, and the body had come up. I guess maybe sucked up under like that. And the body would not go on down the creek. In other words, it wouldn’t flow. But the ledge of limb, it was like it was lodged that way. That was the first flash, the second flash I saw.

And the third flash I saw, the hand had started… (This is horrible.) But the hand had started to come up above the head like that. I saw that flash. And that family’s devastated. He’s twenty years old. That family’s devastated.

Brother Jose, who was here Sunday morning, his name is Jose Morales and his wife’s name is Esther. He is the Director of the Emergency Management Team in Harris County. He is over that whole department. And I want the Lord to help them find that body. I want the Lord to do that.

And I think it’s odd that the Lord keeps showing me, perhaps it’s that boy. Those glimpses. Why would the Lord show it to me, except that we would pray that God will do something? Maybe God is trying to speak to that family about their souls. And I’d like for you to remember that whole family. They were here Sunday morning, Sunday night and Tuesday night. I don’t see them here this morning, but I believe the Lord is doing something in their life.

This Is the Time

March 11, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Message in Tongues given through Sister Helen Burgess & Interpretation given through Brother Greeley

This is the time, My people. This is the hour. This is the time, saith the Lord, that I have called My people to go forth into every nation, unto every tongue, unto all people. This is the time of the final harvest.

Are you willing to sacrifice your own flesh to be able to go to the nations, saith the Lord? Are you willing to sacrifice your money to go to the nations? Are you willing to sacrifice what you want, to do what I want, saith the Lord? This is the time, this is the hour.

And I am calling to you, saith the Lord. Be prepared. Be prepared. You may not want to go, saith God, but I am calling people in this hour. And I am preparing them. And I am putting Fire under them, saith the Lord, that will give them a “Go-ye!” That will give them a desire to go into all the nations and to all people, and to all tongues, and declare My Word. For this is the hour of the final harvest, and I will send you forth, saith the Lord, to do My work. And no man and no devil shall stop what I am doing in this hour, saith the Lord.

Be Careful What You Speak

March 15, 2001 (Thursday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Tremain | Read by Sister Elfriede on March 18, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

This happened to me Thursday morning very early in the morning. But I can’t see this read it, so I’m going to ask Elfrieda to read it to you. And if I have anything to say, I’ll say it.


I was sleeping, and I heard Brother Shelley say, “This man has mocked God.” It so startled me, that I woke up. And I continued to hear Brother Shelley say, “He cannot go to heaven. He did it willfully and he purposefully mocked God. He would have died last night here, but I prayed for him and God let him live to take care of his family. Don’t pray for him, and don’t feel sorry for him. We cannot help him now.

I did not see the man’s face. I know we were not in the church when Brother Shelley said this. But I don’t know where we were. It did seem like we were outside.

DictionaryDescription

Mock: To laugh at, to ridicule, to make fun of.

“Little children mocked him and said, ‘Go up, thou bald head.'” 2. Kings 2:23

To make fun of by copying or imitating.

To make light of.

To pay no attention to.

To deceive, to disappoint.

That one that said not to listen to, that’s the one that gripped my heart. And I, you see I have been guilty of thoughts in my own mind against our Pastor. And it was not to be evil or anything, it was just things I didn’t understand. But I had commented and I had no right. And I asked the Lord to forgive me, and I ask my Pastor to forgive me.

But I know that God is speaking to us. To us He’s speaking. To us. I’m just thankful that’s it’s not too late for me. We have to be careful. We have to be so careful. We’re in the last. And what we do now is all we have left. What we do from here out is all we have left.

Put Me First

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Flo Hendrix

I guess it was about three o’clock this morning. I woke and I couldn’t sleep any more. So I early just got up. But the first thing that came to my spirit when I woke was, “You have to put Me first. I have to be first. You rise and you come to Me first. You don’t fix breakfast for the family. You don’t eat. You don’t put in a load of clothes. You don’t do all that you have to do and then come to Me. You have to put Me first. You have to come to Me first in the morning.”

Then I went in the back room to keep from waking daddy up. I sat down in the floor and I opened my Bible. And the first thing that I read, it said, “Don’t be judging people. Don’t judge man. Because when you judge him, you’re judged by the same judgment.”

He said, “Put Me first and don’t judge anybody. You leave people alone. You let Me handle people, no you. You keep your mind and your heart clean and clear, so that you can hear My voice.”

The Lord is Calling & Calling, Waiting on Someone to Answer

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

Two different things happened to me last night and yesterday afternoon. I was going to wait to share them, but I feel led to share them now. Because I didn’t know until I was standing here just a moment ago that the two were connected, because the first thing was rather carnal, but the Spirit of the Lord just connected them for me.

All during the night last night… (I’ll tell the second one first.) All during the night last night I heard the telephone ringing. And it rang and it rang and it rang and it rang. And I would wake up immediately and it wouldn’t be ringing. And I would lay back down and it would ring and ring and ring.

And if I had to guess how many times it rang, it must have rang a thousand times in my spirit. Over and over again the phone would ring. And I’d turn over and it would ring again. Ringing, ringing, ringing.

Finally, early this morning about six o’clock I said, “Now Lord, surely You’re trying to tell me something. I’ve heard the phone ring probably now a thousand times, all night long. Surely You’re trying to tell me something.” And the Spirit of the Lord said, “Tell them, I keep calling. I keep calling and I’m calling and I’m calling, and I’m waiting on someone to answer.”

And as I was sitting here, standing here this morning, I realized something else that happened to me. I was working at my desk yesterday afternoon. And I’d been getting e-mails all day long from Sister Potter, because of a young man in the New Brunswick church that was having surgery. Brother Daryl’s church half the time, and he lives in Newfoundland half the time. Thirteen years old, diagnosed with a brain tumor this week. And his surgery lasted, I think, over seven hours yesterday.

And all during the surgery the e-mails kept coming, to let me know what was happening. And finally they e-mailed and said that they had spoken with the mother, and they had gotten almost all of the tumor. And then I got another one that said the surgery’s over. And then I got another one late last night that said the young man woke up and said, ‘I’m thirsty. I want something to drink.”

But anyway, as I was sitting there… That had happened to me in the afternoon, and then in the evening I was studying over my Bible. And all of you know, if you’ve got a computer. I don’t have AOL, but if you have AOL, there is a voice that will come on and say, “You’ve got mail.”

I used to have AOL. I don’t have it any more. I use another carrier. And on my carrier there is a little world down there at the bottom, an icon at the bottom of the screen. And when an e-mail has been received if you’re on line, it dings. It’ll just go “ding.” And when you look down at that icon, you’ll see an envelope popping up out of the world. Some of you use the same as I do.

For about an hour last night, while I was working on notes and praying over my message this morning, the computer kept dinging. It would ding. And I would look down and the little envelope would be flashing over the world, and I would click on the e-mail program and nothing would be there.

And that happened about eight or nine times, I would hear that ding. And I didn’t think a thing in the world about it. I thought, “Oh there must be something wrong in the line. There is something wrong with the computer.”

And I didn’t notice it, but as I was standing here this morning, the Lord said, “See. I was trying to get that Word into your spirit before you went to bed, but you weren’t hearing Me. You weren’t hearing what I was trying to say. So that’s why I had to trouble you all night long.” Ringing. Ringing. Ringing. “You tell them,” He said, “I’ve been calling. I’ve been calling. I’ve been calling. I’m waiting on someone to answer.”

Let’s be serious this morning. Let’s hear God’s call. He’s not speaking to the sinners, calling sinners to repentance. He’s calling you to the deeper life. Hear what I’m saying this morning. The Spirit of the Lord is desiring to call you to the deeper life, to the deeper things of God.

And God has been trying to get some messages through to us through various people, and you won’t speak. God said, “I’m calling to you, and I’m calling to you, and I’m calling to you, and waiting on you to answer.” The Body is waiting, and God is waiting on you to answer.

Let’s just sing that again. Sing, “Hallelujah…”

I want you to hear that message from the Lord. “I’m calling. I’m calling. I’m calling. And I’m waiting on someone to answer.” You know if I was you, the first thing that would come out of my mouth would be, “I’ll be the one.” Hear me. (I don’t know where my help is this morning.) “I’ll be the one. Lord, let me be the ears. Let me be the mouthpiece. Let me be the one to receive.”

You say, “Pastor, I’ve never had a message from the Lord before.” Today could be the first time. God has been calling, calling, calling. Hallelujah. All night long the phone ringing, ringing, ringing. I even raised up in the bed to take the phone and there was no one there.

And finally, I thought, “Maybe the ringer has been turned down.” And I looked to see if it was flashing, to see if it was ringing. No. And later, about six o’clock, “I’m calling,” He said. “Tell them I’m calling. Who will answer?”

You Shall Know Me in Reality

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

You shall know, you shall know, you shall know, saith the Lord, you shall know the reality. You have known Me in types. You have known Me in symbols. But yea I say unto you, you shall know Me in reality. You shall no longer only see Me in types and in anti-types, but you shall know Me in reality. For I shall change your testimony. I shall change your song. I shall change the very words of your lips.

And when they come forth, they’ll not come forth as knowledge from the head, but they shall begin to flow forth as revelation from the heart. For I shall reveal Myself unto you, even as I revealed Myself unto Moses, saith the Lord, and unto Elijah. You shall know Me as Saul met Me on the road, and I changed him for My Glory.

Yea the Lord would say unto thee, for the Pillar of Fire shall return unto thee, saith the Lord. And it shall not only come to lead thee and to guide thee, but My Fire shall come to purge thee and to change thee, saith the Lord. And you shall walk in a Glory and in a Power that you have not yet known, if you will press in, saith the Lord, if you will lay yourself before Me and let Me stir up, saith God, your spirit-man. Wake up, I say. I call your spirit-man to wake.

Yea, I see him, how he has slept. Even when My Anointing would come, your spirit-man would sleep. Even when My Word would go forth, your spirit-man would sleep. Even when prayer has been offered, your spirit-man has slept. But I the Lord, thy God, would speak unto thee this night, arise. Wake up, oh spirit-man. Hear the word of the Lord. Your days of rest and slumber are over, and I call you to arise. Arise, oh new man.

Arise. Arise within, My people, for you have slept enough. And I call for the spirit-man to awaken you and to hear the charge of the Lord. I charge you, “Arise and go forth to meet the challenge of the hour. For you have known the sleep of the flesh long enough.” I call unto thee this night, “Arise. Arise. Arise and shine.” Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Praise the Lord with me. Praise the Lord with me.

Feast at My Table

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophecy given through Sister Helen Burgess

I have filled a table, and I have set the chairs. All that you have to do is just pull up a chair and sit down, and feast at my table. I have it ready, I have it ready. All you have to do is come and dine with Me. [Unclear audio]

And I will bless thee. Don’t turn away from Me. Because I am with thee. And I will help thee. I say, look up to Me, look up to Me. I will help thee in the time of need.

With Feet of Purpose, You Shall Possess

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given through Brother Shelley

Feet with purpose. You shall have feet with purpose. Oh, glory to God. You shall not wander here and there. Your feet shall not go to and fro, but you shall have purpose for your feet, saith the Lord. And with your feet of purpose, you shall possess. You shall claim. You shall tread upon that which I have promised you for tonight. I prophesy purpose to your feet. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.

One Breath at a Time

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Al Schmitz

Brother Shelley, when you was talking about the footsteps, the Lord revealed to me like how simple things are for us. He made them really simple. We take one footstep at a time, one heartbeat at a time. Wouldn’t it be awful if we had to work at the first of the day, say, “How many heartbeats will I need today?”

But He made it simple–just one at a time, one breath at a time. And He’s so good to us. And I wanted to also tell everybody thanks for the prayers. He’s healing me over and over again, this bronchitis. And I praise Him and give Him honor and glory for it.

Stirring of the Membrane

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

I’ve got another Word I need to give. I’m having to drag some of you. But I have another Word that I need to give from the Lord tonight. And this is a serious Word. It’s almost embarrassing for me to say it. It’s something we probably shouldn’t even say in mixed company under normal circumstances. But I have to give it, because the Lord put it in my heart heavy as I was sitting over there. This is serious. I hope I don’t embarrass you. I’m probably getting you all nervous for nothing. I hope that you’ll understand that I would never say this unless it was the Lord.

But as I was sitting there, I heard the Lord say… And I thought it was a great confirmation when Sister, when somebody… I believe it was Sister Joyce, referred to the membrane, she said, that I had spoke about one time, the membrane. Well, this is serious. Hear me, hear me, hear me, hear me, what I’m about to say.

We were always nervous about the birth of our children because we had a favorite midwife. And it looked like that every time it would… On the calendar it would look like that our favorite midwife was not going to be on call when the time would come. And we’d feel apprehensive. And we would tell ourselves, both of us, my wife and I both would say, “Well, it’ll be alright. We know the Lord will be there. It really doesn’t matter.” But we both knew what we wanted. We liked this young lady. We felt comfortable.

And during the time of my wife’s labor… It looked like she was going into labor. And this girl was out of town. And then she came back into town, and my wife… All the symptoms of labor left and so forth. And we were… We had an appointment to go and see her. And we told her that we wanted to have the baby. My wife said she wanted to have this baby, and she wanted to have it. We told her many times, “We want to have it when you’re on call.” This sounds serious, but I don’t think it’s too serious or too graphic that I couldn’t say this.

But every woman knows… (God help me to say it and not be offensive. But if you don’t know, you will know one day that there…) When you go to the gynecologist or to the obstetrician, if that’s how you say it, then they… (Oh, Lord.) I just want to say it polite, because the Word’s from the Lord, but I want to build to it, so you’ll understand. She said, “Well, I’ll help you.” Let me just put it this way. She said, “Well, I’ll help you. If you’re really ready to have this baby,” she said, “I’ll help you.”

And I looked at her like, you know, “You got a magic pill?” Because we certainly didn’t want to be induced. My wife knew that. We knew from all that we had read and all that we’d experienced that we did not want an induced labor, because ninety percent of the time it’s much more intense when it’s induced. We knew we didn’t want that.

She said, “I’m going to stir things up a bit.” That’s crude, but I’ll give you the Word of the Lord in a moment. She said, “I’m going to stir things up a bit.” And when she gave my wife her examination, she said, “I’m going to stir things up a bit.” When she got through, she said…

I’d never heard this. She didn’t do this for Benjamin. But she said, “I have broken the membrane.” And she said, “If it’s time for you to go to labor, you’ll go into labor within twenty-four hours. If it’s not, then that membrane will mend itself until it’s time for labor. But I have broken the membrane.” She looked and made sure it was broken.

Now exactly what that means, I don’t know. We mentioned it to a nurse and she laughed at us. But as sure as I’m standing here, within twenty-four hours, my wife was in labor, and she was having no sign of labor.

And so I read a little bit, and I read about the membrane. There’s lots of membranes in our bodies, men and women. But this was a membrane that forms. It’s the natural thing that holds the womb closed, and it is a barrier between the womb and the outside.

They told… Sister Joyce told… Brother Greeley might have told me. One of them told me. (I think it was you.) That this girl who lost the triplets and who is now pregnant with quadruplets, that if she makes it to twenty weeks, they’ll sew up her womb (Is that right?) so that she doesn’t lose these babies. They’ll sow it up so that they can’t fall out. That sounds horrible, but that’s exactly what it means, so that they’ll be held in the womb, and she wouldn’t be able to go into full dilation.

As I was sitting there tonight, this was not on my mind, but I believe the Lord gave me a Word. Because the very crude thing… Now Michelle was crude when she said it, but it didn’t offend me. She said, “I’m going to stir things up.”

I’ve heard God say those very words. I’ve prayed those very words, “Lord, stir us up.” I had a sister say to me on the phone yesterday from another church, she said, “Brother Shelley, what we need is a stirring up.”

But the Word that the Lord was giving me was, He desires, I believe even tonight, to penetrate the membrane. And I had no idea that Sister Joyce was even going to come behind, I mean, ahead of me and speak about a membrane. Holding things in that need to come out…

There is a God-ordained time for a birth, a God-ordained time. And by stirring up, by breaking that membrane… Surely that didn’t gross anybody out. If it did, Lord, have mercy; you’ve got to grow up in a hurry. But stirring up and by breaking and penetrating that membrane…

She said, “Membranes.” It caused the body to go into its cycle of labor, so that the birth could happen at God’s appointed time, and yet it just took a little stirring, though, to get things moving. You understand? And I wanted to give that Word. I believe it’s the Word of the Lord that tonight He desires to remove the membrane. Hallelujah.

And I’m seeing a vision right now as I’m speaking to you, of something I remember as a boy in school. I used to get the Weekly Reader. (If anybody ever got the Weekly Reader, hold up your hand.) I used to get the Weekly Reader when I was a boy in school. And I remember an article, and you’ll remember it too, or at least the story, of a boy who had no ability to, no resistance to disease, and he had to live in a bubble. You understand what I’m saying? And that was on the cover of the Weekly Reader, “The Boy Who Lived in a Bubble.” He lived in a glass bubble like, a protective bubble he lived in, because his body had no resistance and no antibodies to fight off disease.

And God is saying that it’s just like that membrane. It is necessary. That membrane is there for a reason. And that bubble was there for a reason. But there comes a time that the resistance is built up and the antibodies are there. And there comes a time that that which is being held back must usher forth. Hallelujah.

I see a glorious flow of the Spirit of God. Oh, yes. In fact, He’s speaking so quickly to me now, I can hardly relate it. But I want to tie it in with what Sister Jeffier said this morning about the dam.

Winds of Praise

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

I heard the Lord say that He desired for the winds of praise to flow through this place. And when He spoke that into my spirit a few moments ago, I could see wind. You say, “You can’t see wind.” I saw wind. I saw it because it was as a vapor. And I saw it rolling in. I knew that those were the winds of praise. They rolled in like waves. This may sound strange, but on each of these waves I could see the angelic hosts of the Lord.

And I said, “Lord, does that mean that if the winds of praise would blow through this place that the angels of the Lord would be riding on that praise?” He said, “Yes.” Hallelujah, hallelujah. Lord, we don’t care if You open our eyes, let us see it. It’d be alright with us. (Tongues.) Oh, yes.

Feet with Purpose

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Carmen Lanier

I want to thank the Lord for His great mercy to us. On Thursday, the only way I know how to describe it is, my feet were very sensitive, sore like. And they’ve been that way every day. And finally, on Saturday, I said, “Lord, there’s nothing that looks wrong with my feet.” But I said, “You’re trying to speak to me something about my feet.”

And I know I’ve said it to more than one person over the last couple of weeks. I can see where I’m supposed to be, but I can’t figure out how to get there. But I know that feet with purpose, I won’t be afraid to take a step, because He’ll lead me there. I thank Him for it.

Answer When God Calls

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Isabel Weems

There have been times within the last six months where my phone, I would hear it ring one time at night. It would wake me up, and then I realize the phone’s not ringing; the phone just rang.

And I know God wants me to answer when He calls. And I appreciate what you said and then what Sister Elfrieda said. And I don’t ever want ever miss a chance to get on my knees and pray for someone, or whatever He’s calling me to do at that time.

Apostolic Anointing upon Your Feet

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

Asa trusted the Lord in all things, but was diseased in his feet. And he leaned to the arms of flesh and died. There is importance in our feet. They are the foundation of our body. And they carry us wherever we go. I don’t know if God’s ever talked to me about feet or not, but He’s talking to me about feet, feet with purpose. Hallelujah. Oh, God. (Tongues.) Hallelujah.

I just heard the Spirit of the Lord say, “I’m sending the apostolic anointing upon your feet.” Hallelujah. “You shall go forth with that anointing on your feet,” Hallelujah, hallelujah. “To establish the Kingdom of Jesus Christ in the earth.”

Shucking the Spiritual Membranes

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

(Tongues.) These membranes have not been placed there by the devil. They’re spiritual, and they’ve been there just like the shuck is placed over the seed, to protect it. Hallelujah. But there comes a time that the shuck has to pull away for the seed to be used, to be harvested. And there comes a time that even the spiritual membranes that the Lord has put in place, must be removed, because God desires to bring to the birth.

Oh, yes. We’ve had many words about the birth, but I hear the Spirit speaking tonight about the birth, the birth, the birth, the birth. Hallelujah, hallelujah… I’m going back to a message that the Lord gave us on the sacrifice of praise, and He talked to us about the birth, and He talked to us about the bar mitzphah of praise when praise comes to maturity. And He talked to us about the time when the promise becomes the reality. Hallelujah, hallelujah.

Table of Nutrients

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Greeley

I feel the spirit of prophecy on me. But I don’t have words to prophesy. But at the same time I’m sensing that the Lord is calling for us to pull up to His table, and to eat from His table. I’m reminded of some time ago when pastor saw a table with limbs. But tonight I’m seeing a table with nutrients.

I don’t know any other way to describe it, but other than nutrients for our spiritual man, that would help us to overcome bitterness’s in our life, nutrients to help us overcome anger in our life, all of the things that keep us down in the valley. I see it on this table as nutrients. If we’ll take them into our spirit man to help us to overcome this time… Hallelujah, hallelujah…

Birth Canal

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Kary Payne

After Brother Shelley spoke about the membrane and we started to pray, I was asking the Lord to stir me and to move me. And I had my eyes closed. In the Spirit, I could see a Fire coming from my left side and up above me. And it started to come down towards me. As it got closer, it started to wrap around me, and it became like a tunnel.

And I didn’t know what it was. And I heard a voice say, “Birth canal.” And I never came out of it, so I guess we’re either still in it, or we’re about to come out of it, but I think we’re about to be birthed into something. But I heard the Lord say, “Birth canal.”

The Curtain of the Holy of Holies

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Jan Salvador

When we were praising and worshiping the Lord earlier tonight… It’s my desire to get so close to Him. And I could see the curtain to the Holy of Holies. And I just asked the Lord, you know, “Please. Once we go in, we don’t come out the same.” And I know that what you’re speaking about the membrane and all of it all ties together. That’s my desire.

Gate Swinging Open

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Roshelle Ritchie

When we were talking about the gate earlier, I saw… It was like a, one of those big gates for cattle. And I saw an image of it like swing open. And we were singing, and I saw the Lord. And I saw Him standing, and He was wonderful. And before this I’ve seen a lake, and I seen the Glory of the Lord above the lake. And I didn’t know what it meant, and I never have asked you what it meant. I thought the Lord, in time, He would tell me what that meant.

A Touch of the Fresh Oil

March 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

You know, I’m seeing something else. I’m seeing a great pouring out of that green oil that the Lord spoke to us about sometime… I started seeing it when Sister Joyce was testifying. I started seeing that green oil being poured out. And I was sitting there thinking, “Well, that’s what she needs. She needs the fresh oil.” And as I was thinking that, I thought, “Mm, that’s what I need too.” That’s what everybody in this building needs, is a touch of fresh oil.

Somebody slip up your hand and say, “Anoint me. Anoint me, Father. Anoint me, Father, with Your fresh oil. Anoint me. Anoint me. Anoint me with Your fresh oil. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. (Tongues.) We need it. It will refresh us. Hallelujah.

Some of our wheels need to be oiled. Come on. Some of our gears need to be oiled. Hallelujah. Just any old WD40 is not good for the believer. But we want that fresh oil. Hallelujah. It’s green to symbolize that it’s not completely cured. It’s fresh. And that’s what was used in the making of the anointing oil. It was fresh, green oil. Hallelujah. We need that to lubricate us.

Healing Power for the Bride

March 25, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

For the Lord would say unto thee this morning, I’m going to begin to do the exceeding and the abundant for you, saith the Lord. As you stretch yourself, as you begin to prophesy, as you begin to decree, as you begin to declare even in the little things, I’m going to begin to bring them to pass before your eyes. Let it not cause your heart to be dismayed.

For the Lord would say unto thee, I have the greater. I have the greater. I have the greater, and I desire to pour it out upon thee, saith the Lord. Move out even this morning. Move out and do not fear.

Do not be afraid to speak My Word in faith, for I say unto thee, the power is in your mouth. For I have placed My Word in thee. And if you speak in My Name, I will begin to bring it to pass, saith the Lord. For this is the hour, and this is the time that I shall move My Bride from the places of obscurity to the places of availability, saith the Lord. And of visibility.

Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, as I begin to manifest Myself among you, they shall call for you to come from the nations of the world. Yea, they shall call for you to come because of the miracles. And in doing so, I will release My Word to My scattered Bride, saith the Lord.

For yea, the Lord would say unto thee, many would have you to believe that the days of miracles are over, and that I’m no longer healing. But I say unto thee, the greatest release of healing is coming to the Bride.

Yea, I say unto thee, man has seen the healing miracles of days gone by. But I say unto thee, when I release My healing power upon My Bride around the world, greater miracles than have ever been seen will be seen, saith the Lord. For the great release of healing power will not be to the multitudes. It shall be for My Bride. Be strong and be very courageous, and be very obedient. For I, the Lord thy God, have called thee for this hour, saith the Lord.

Revolutionized Lives

March 25, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

The Lord just put a word in my spirit. There are… This seems so odd, because it’s such a quiet service. But there are going to be people who walk out of this building tonight with their lives revolutionized, because God’s going to step in. Hallelujah. The change is going to be simple, and yet it’s going to be profound. Hallelujah. You’re going to find yourself thinking differently, and you’re going to find yourself speaking differently. Hallelujah.

Some of you are going to find a new level of faith in Jesus that you’ve never had before. Hallelujah. Some of you are going to feel the unity of God melting you into the body like you’ve never experienced before. God said tonight is the night of change for all those who seek His face. Hallelujah.

If you’ll seek His face right where you’re standing, I believe something will happen in your life, because of the prayer of faith. There’s no hocus pocus. There’s no way of just touching you, and you getting an emotional charge and being changed. It’s going to take the Anointing of God and the power of Jesus to make a difference.

Entering a Time of Holy Convocation

March 25, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

The Spirit of the Lord is speaking to me about somebody who has become very comfortable, very at ease in your life, very comfortable with just going through the routine. The Spirit of the Lord is calling to you tonight, whoever you are, to make yourself serious before God, to call out to Him.

In fact, the Lord is putting in my spirit to ask you to enter into a serious time with God, a holy convocation, in these coming days, that you would try to make yourself serious about the walk with Jesus, so that He could make Himself known to you. Some of you are going through the motion, but missing out on what He has for you. Hallelujah.

And God’s just encouraging me to encourage you to enter a time of holy convocation with Him. Set aside an extra hour; set aside an extra time to pray and an extra time to worship the Lord, and expect something great. Hallelujah. May God just increase your expectation. Hallelujah. The Spirit of God is still moving. Hallelujah. Sing again.

Bus Explosion in Jerusalem

March 25, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I don’t really want to interrupt the service at a moment like this. (Give me some here.) But I just feel like I have to share this, because I don’t know whether this is something that is inevitable or something that we can pray down. But as I was sitting there, I just saw a terrible explosion. And I believe that it was in Israel. And there was a bus involved. I saw a large… I say a large bus, but I want to further correct it.

I want to say that it was a different looking bus, maybe about a three quarter size. I’ve seen those little school buses, little half buses, and then the big ones. But this bus seemed to be about three quarters of length of what a school bus would be. It was white in color. And it was not too crowded. It wasn’t completely filled. But I saw it heading into a crowd of people that were gathered, and then a terrible explosion.

Now we’ve learned here over the years when God shows things like this, we pray about them, because some things are inevitable. God has purposed it. It’s going to happen. He allows it. It’s coming. And what we pray for then is for souls that are lost without God. Other things the Lord shows because the enemy is plotting them, and God wants intercessors praying to stop it. Sometimes when those kinds of things are shown, we never know; we never know. But I’ve never let it bother me over the years because…

Maybe fifteen or so passenger vehicles out there, passenger boats out there have sunk, and God didn’t show them. But one time He showed a ferry sinking and the people losing their lives, and we prayed. And we don’t know why God showed it like that, but He just does.

I wanted you to pray, and I just kept asking the Lord, “Lord, if Jonathan would just sing something a little Jewish, then I’d feel like that was the time to share it.” And he did. As soon as… I just had asked that, and he started singing that spiritual song that kind of has a Jewish sound, “I will consider.” Or at least it does to me. “I will consider.” So would you ask the Lord… I hope I don’t confuse those of you that don’t understand the supernatural realm.


And so I felt like I had to tell what I saw. And I’m feeling it very, very heavy right now. So would you just agree with me? You see, there are wonderful people that don’t know the Lord in Israel tonight. Jews, and even Arabs are reaching out for help. I’m in contact with several major ministries in Jerusalem. And I received word from one of them that even many, many, many Arabs have reached out to them for help and to know more about Jesus, since this trouble has started again. They’re getting calls.

One ministry sent me an e-mail and said… And I assume that they added, that it was something they sent to everybody. But at the end, they added a little personal word. I know the brother. And he said, this week over thirty contacts have been made with Arab families who have been so stirred up because of the trouble, that they have called asking for information about Jesus. Hallelujah.

So would you pray tonight for the peace of Jerusalem? And would you pray with me about that which Satan… God woke me up in the night to pray on the night that the embassies were bombed in Dar Es Salaam and in Nairobi, Kenya. And God showed me the explosion. God woke me up.

I had dozed off early the night that the bomb went off at the Olympic park. God woke me up. And I had dozed of early in the evening. And I went down on my knees and I told those that were in my home, “Something is happening, and if we pray, lives can be spared.” And we turned on the radio and they said that the bomb had just gone off in the olympic park. So God gives us things sometime to spare lives.

Stretch your hand toward God. My heart is just beating very, very fast, like it does sometime when God’s dealing. Spirit of the living God, we feel like we have to explain things so much, because we know that people don’t always understand. But God, it is a fact to us that through the Bible You have dealt with Your people this way. And historically down through the ages, from the early church, You have dealt with people in vision.

And God, we don’t know what this is about. And I’m making an assumption that it was Israel, because of how I felt. But God, wherever it would be… But I feel again the leading that it was Israel. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. (Tongues.) We bless Jerusalem right now. We bless Jerusalem in the Name of Yeshua Hamashya. We bless Jerusalem right now. (Tongues.)

I see in the Spirit great host of angels gathering around the city. Hallelujah. Great host of angels gathering to their post (hallelujah), to overlook and to watch the city. Hallelujah. Glory, I say, glory, I say… (Tongues.)

We pray that lives will be spared. We pray that souls will have an opportunity to know You. God, if this is something that prayer can stop, we just pray that it would never have to happen. But if this is something that Your plan would bring, we pray that Your will is accomplished. Oh God, it is not for the Jews alone that we weep, but we weep for all of those who fill the city and who fill the nation. Hallelujah, hallelujah… (Tongues.) Gathering angels. Hallelujah. Yes. (Tongues.) You don’t have to understand it to pray, do you? You don’t have to understand it to ask God to have His way. Hallelujah, hallelujah… Innocent people, oh God.

You Must Do Your Part

April 1, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Message in Tongues given through Sister Helen Burgess & Interpretation given through Sister Anne Tremain

I have always come when you have asked me here. I have always come. I am here. I am here. But it is the part where that you… You must come to Me. You must call on Me. You must do your part. I am always there, my people. I am always there. I am yours, and you are Mine.

But we must share. We must share this temple. And I just want to do those things for you. I want to do those things that you need. I want to come. I want to be there for every little thing, every big thing. But you must come to Me. You must make room for Me there. You must do the things that I ask of you. You must be faithful to Me. You must do those things. And I will be there for you.

Who Through Faith Subdued Kingdoms

April 8, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

Hallelujah. Hallelujah. While we were singing that… You know, some people have a problem with those kinds of words that you’re tearing down the kingdom of the devil. That’s exactly what you’ve been called to do. You can surely see that in the Word of God.

But while we were singing that, I kept hearing the voice of the Spirit saying, “Who through faith subdued kingdoms, who through faith subdued kingdoms, who through faith subdued kingdoms.” And I found it here in Hebrews eleven, verse thirty-three.

  1. Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

  2. Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

  3. Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

  4. And others had trial of cruel mocking’s and scourging’s, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:

  5. They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, they were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;

  6. (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

  7. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise;

  8. God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

Oh, give God a shout of praise.

By their faith, by their faith subdued kingdoms. You know, I believe the Holy Spirit is saying tonight that there’s a people being raised up who through their faith will subdue kingdoms. Hallelujah. Quench the violence of fire and escape the edge of the sword, and out of weakness they will be made strong. Give the Lord a shout of praise.

The Way Is Made

April 11, 2001 (Wednesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given to Brother Shelley

The Lord said for me to tell you
that if you’ll go through tonight, you won’t have to struggle. Those of you that often struggle to get in the Spirit, those of you that often struggle to feel His Presence, the Lord said if you’d just push in right now,you’d get your mind right on Him,forget about the time and where you need to be and what’s going on, and you’d just lift your heart before Him, you’d enter right in, hallelujah, aome of you would touch Him in a way you’ve never touched Him. Oh, let Him be the focus of your life right now.

Hear His voice. Don’t let Him pass you by.Hear His voice right now.Enter in. The way is made, the way is made, the way is made. It’s made, it’s made. What more can He do? The way is made.

Unravelling of the Flag of Wickedness

April 11, 2001 (Wednesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

And so, while I was sleeping that night… I woke up early in the morning and the Lord began to give me a vision. It wasn’t a dream. It was a vision. I was awake and I saw this large black flag waving in the breeze, with the binding at the top instead of at the side, like a flag would normally be connected to the pole. The binding was at the top, and the black flag was hanging down.

And on that flag… I tried to think today if I could remember anything else that I saw on the flag. But I wasn’t able to remember anything else. but I saw in the top corner I saw a swastika. And then down in the bottom I saw a Pentagram.

And I remember some words, some vile words, but I don’t even remember what they were at the moment. But I just remember seeing them almost painted on the flag like graffiti. You know, graffiti style letters. But for some reason, (and I know it’s a good thing that the Spirit won’t even let me remember, because He didn’t want that in my heart or in my mind.) But I remember at the time recognizing that it was graffiti and vile words.

This flag was waving in the breeze. And all of a sudden I saw hanging from the little corner of that flag one little single solitary thread hanging down. And I saw a hand come in and take a hold of that string and begin to pull it. And as that string was pulled in from the flag, I saw underneath that flag the flags of the nations waving also in the wind. And I knew that this was a flag of evil, a flag of wickedness that was being waved over the nations of the world.

But I saw that hand coming in. (I am feeling that heavy anointing.) Oh. (Tongues) I want to get a little further (Tongues) I wanted to get a little furth… (Tongues) (Help me, Lord.) I saw that thread begin to pull. And I could see it unraveling back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. It unraveled as that hand began to yank on that thread. And finally, when it was done, there was nothing but loose threads hanging down from the binding of that flag. But you couldn’t make out anything evil on it, because it had been unraveled.

And then I told last night in detail. I went to the washroom. I came back. I prayed. I sat up in the bed. I prayed about what I had seen. And I was thinking that this was the hand of the Lord that had come in the vision and had begun to unravel the thread. And the Lord asked me what I saw. And I began to repeat back to the Lord what I had seen in the vision. And when I got to that place, I said, “And I saw Your hand, the hand of the Lord, come in and begin to unravel.”

And God said to my spirit. “That’s not what you saw.” And I said, “Lord, I… “And I began to back up and try to describe it to the Lord again in this vision. And He reminded me, “That’s not… “He said, “It wasn’t My hand that you saw. It wasn’t My hand that was unraveling that. It was your hand.” And I said, “Lord, how can it be my hand?” And He said, “You’re representing, your hand was representing the Bride of Christ.”

And I said, “Lord, how could a man’s hand represent the Bride of Christ? The Bride is always represented in the feminine. What big masculine man do you know that would wear a wedding dress?” And I said, “Lord, then it’s always manifested in the feminine, but yet You said it was my hand that represented the Bride.”

And God began to remind me of how He had spoken to me in Sacramento, California some years ago when I was preaching a Revival out there. He spoke in my spirit one night. Several hundred people gathered there. And He said, “In the last days, I’m going to manifest Myself so richly in My Bride, that she’s not going to come across in the feminine, but she’s going to come across in the masculine. “It’s not going to be her, but it’s going to be the Bridegroom living in the Bride, speaking through the Bride, working through the Bride. Oh hallelujah to God. And it gave me such a hope. And I said, “Lord, I want to see it in the Scripture.”

When He took me to this Scripture, He showed me this very reference here. “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested.” (Can I remove this tie here? I knew I didn’t want to wear it when I put it on. It was feeling a little binding here.) “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.”

When I looked that word “destroy” up in the original language, he said it means, “to loose, to unbind, to unravel and to dissolve.” Hallelujah. “For this purpose….” (Help me now. We’re going to move into something else in a moment. But help me get there.) For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested, that He might unravel that flag of wickedness, that waves over the nations of the world, that the Bride of Christ would be able to speak in His authority and watch Him bring His Word to pass. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.

I began to examine Satan’s work. He said, “The works of the devil.” I began to examine the works of the devil and I saw some of them so clearly. One of the works of the devil is that he attacks people morally. There is something wrong with the morality of America. We know what’s wrong with the morality of America. The devil is what’s wrong with the morality of America. His dirty work, his dirty job is to entice and to seduce people into sin. Sin is unbelief. Sin will take you farther than you want to go and it will leave you there longer than you want to stay.

Sin looks. The devil has a way of making things look enticing and luscious and beautiful and desirable. But oh, when you take a bite of that and you get that into your spirit, it wraps its tentacles around you. I used to sing a song that they Hinson’s wrote years ago. And one line of that song said, “Old Satan said, ‘one look will never hurt your soul at all. It’s fun, though some fanatics call it sin.'” And that’s exactly how the devil operates his business. Can you say amen? He makes things look so luscious and so fun and so entertaining and so desirable, until it overwhelms people.

Pulpit to the Nations

April 14, 2001 (Saturday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

And I want to tell you one other thing that the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me, as I was sitting in the chair. And this is a little hard. You hate to say things like this. But He spoke it to me. You can judge it and pray about it and fast about it if you take it serious and decide whether it’s you or not.

But the Lord spoke to me and He said, “I’m going to give you a pulpit to the nations.” And He said, “Even if the people that you preach to won’t hear you Sunday after Sunday,” He said, “I’m going to give you a pulpit to the nations. And I’m going to raise up people all over the world that need to hear that message of Truth.” Oh, hallelujah.

So if we don’t let it sink in and change us, God’s got people that we’ve never met before; don’t know them; don’t know their address or where they come from, that are ready for a change. Is there anybody in this house tonight, you believe these are the days of change, and you want a wonderful change in your life? Oh, hallelujah. Praise the Lord.

“Thou hast well seen,” He said, “For I will hasten My Word to perform it.” I want us to give the Lord a moment of praise. And I want us to praise Him specifically for beginning hasten the performance of His Word.

Be Faithful in the Small Things

April 14, 2001 (Saturday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

Oh, despise not the day of small things, saith the Lord. For the Lord would say unto thee, I use small things. I use base things. I use insignificant things. Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, My children, this night believe Me. Believe Me as I deal with you in small things. For the Lord would say unto thee, they represent larger and greater things.

Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, be faithful in all the little things that I give you. For it is My desire to move you into bigger and greater. Yea, the Lord would say, be faithful in that that you have. Be faithful in that that I’ve given to you. For there is a greater supply just waiting on you for the asking. The Lord would say unto thee, come to Me and dare to believe. Dare to stretch your faith, saith the Lord. For these are the days of the unraveling of the evil, that Satan has caused to be waved over the nations.

Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, these are the days of the unraveling of his plot. These are the days of the unraveling of his kingdom. For yea, the Lord would say unto thee, I’m raising up an army of people that will know Me and that shall be strong in their revelation of Me, saith the Lord. They shall do great and mighty things. For these are the days of the bringing down of every kingdom that has exalted itself above the Name of the Lord.

For yea, I the Lord thy God shall roll it back, even as the seas are rolled back. Yea, I shall roll back the evil, and I shall allow a quick and short work to go forth in the earth to call My Bride from every nation. Yea, I shall not only call her to salvation, but I shall woo her to perfection, saith the Lord.

And yea, even those that have not been following Me long shall quickly come to that place. And some of them will even run ahead of some of you, saith the Lord, because it will be a supernatural work that I’m doing. Trust Me and worship Me, saith the Lord. For this is the time of tearing down. Yea, this is the time of plucking up. This is the time of breaking fetters and chains. For the Lord would say unto thee, I shall teach you the ways of My Kingdom, saith the Lord.

He Is so Beautiful

April 14, 2001 (Saturday Evening)

Spiritual Song, Sung by Brother Jonathan Hollis

He is so beautiful. He is so beautiful.

He is so beautiful, my Lord, my God.

He is so beautiful. He is so beautiful.

He is so beautiful, my Lord, my God…

Renew Your Strength

April 15, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jeffier Propst

Brother Shelley, can you come, please? Brother Mike and Brother Enzo, would you two please come? I want you to put your hands underneath his arms. Because in Isaiah, chapter forty-one, it said He would renew your strength. He said He would renew your strength. (Tongues.)

(Tongues.) And it also says, “Be encouraged.” And it also says, “Fear not.” Don’t be afraid, Brother Shelley. He said those that contend with you, that they would perish. And it said you’ll go looking for them, those ones, and you won’t be able to find them. They won’t be there any more, Brother.

And this was the part that I had such a hard time with. And when you were reading that the other night that the Lord gave you when you said, He will pluck; He will sow. In that chapter it said He will make you a threshing machine with sharp teeth. (Tongues.)

Michael, son, come here. This is the part I forgot. I can call on… I know that there’s lots and lots of people that pray here. But when you live with somebody and you know what they do… This was something I never told about my son. But Brother Shelley, he prays every night. I want you to get in front of him. I want you to wrap your arms around him, Michael, and I want you to love him, because he needs a hug.

President Bush Spoken to by Dreams

April 15, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

While the Anointing of the Lord is moving… I don’t think it’s just me, but I feel that we should just have one quick word of prayer for President Bush. Oh Father, tonight… Oh, Jesus.

I see that God is speaking to him in his bedchamber. I see that the Spirit of God has been visiting him in the night with dreams, dreams that he doesn’t understand. And I see that he’s going to begin to seek out a counselor, someone that would be able to interpret. And I see that God is going to raise up a man filled with the Holy Ghost. And our President will seek out and find answers to the dreams that he’s having. Hallelujah. (Tongues.)

The Lord said for me to declare that we should not be critical in any way of the way that our President handled this affair with China. For the Lord said for me to tell you that He warned him; God warned him in a dream to be passive and to let it rest. Hallelujah. Lead him and guide him and direct him. Protect his life, oh God. Jesus. (Tongues.) We pray for his family that they would also be lifted up.

Attack Being Planned Against Israel’s Prime Minister Sharon

April 15, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

(Just soft.) Before Brother Greeley takes the service, I wanted to share something that I saw before Sister Propst came when Brother Jonathan asked if there was something to share. I saw what looked like a torpedo.

But it could have possibly been a bullet. And written on it was, “Sharon,” as in the Rose of Sharon. And I asked the Lord what it meant. And I saw a very odd-looking box, perhaps, later I thought a bomb. And on that was also written in red letters, “Sharon.”

And I said, “Lord, Sharon is peace.” And the Lord said, “It is not Sharon. It is Sharon.” So we want to pray tonight for Prime Minister Sharon, that God would put a shield of protection. (Tongues.)

Wrap him, oh God. Wrap him, Lord Jesus, in Your protection. He doesn’t know You as Messiah. He doesn’t know you as Savior and Lord. But Father, we ask that You would protect him now. We pray, God, that You would use him in the work that You’ve called him for. Give him wisdom, oh God, concerning the West Bank. Give him wisdom, Lord, that he would be willing, Father, to be used in Your Kingdom for Your Glory. (Tongues.) Thank You, Lord, that he’s trying to make a stand. Surely the devil would try to kill him this night. But we ask You, Lord to protect him.

We speak to every weapon that would be formed against him, and we command you to come to naught in the Name of Jesus Christ. Every bullet be stopped in the Name of Jesus. Every bomb be stopped. Whatever the enemy would raise up as a tool to destroy his life, may he be preserved by the angels of the Lord. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem, oh God, that Your Glory would settle over the city. Oh, my Father, my Father… My Father, my Father, my Father, my Father, my Father. Jesus, would You gather Zion under Your arms this night and watch her? (Tongues.) Hallelujah

I see that a conspiracy has been formed in the Israeli government. And I see that there’s a weak link in the party. And I see that this weak link has agreed, has weakened and has agreed to plot his destruction. May God show him the Judas. May God show him.

Oh Jesus, show him the traitor. (Tongues.) Preserve him, God. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, we pray for the peace of Israel. We pray, oh God, we pray that Your will would be accomplished quickly in the holy city, Father, that Your will would quickly be accomplished. Jesus, we know that the scene is being set.

Once again, we ask the blessings of the Lord upon Prime Minister Sharon in the Name of Jesus Christ. Prosper him. We pray for his family, that they would also know the protection of the Lord. In the Name of Jesus. Hallelujah, hallelujah.

Sustaining Portion

April 22, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

The Lord would say unto thee this day, I am preparing even in the midst of thee a heavenly loaf. Yea, if you will come and partake of that meat, yea, of that bread that I have provided, you shall not go out weak, neither shall you faint because of the race. For the Lord would say unto thee, I shall give you the endurance of a runner.

And yea, I shall lift thee up, saith the Lord. Though the hours are long and though the battle is hard and the race is rough, yea the Lord would say unto thee, you shall go forth and be sustained by that which I’m preparing for you.

Yea the Lord would say, look not to the right or the left, but look unto Me this day. Look unto Me, saith the Lord, and I shall lift you up, and give you that portion that you need, so that you might go forward, regardless of that that happens around you, regardless of your circumstances. You shall go forth, saith the Lord, and reap that which I have called you to reap. You shall go forth and receive that which I have laid aside for you, saith the Lord. Do not shun My Word this day, but come and eat the loaf.

And yea, I’ve not only bread prepared, but I’ve got meat, saith the Lord, that shall sustain you for many, many, many days. Come to Me right now, said God, and I shall give you that sustaining portion. Look not upon one another, but look upon Me this day, and you shall live, saith the Lord. (Tongues.) Reverence the Lord. Let’s reverence Him with praise. Let’s reverence Him with worship. Let’s adore Him. Hallelujah. Let’s press into heavenly realms, so that we can eat that bread and take that meat. Hallelujah. So shall we be sustained. Praise the Lord.

Carrying a Lot of Things on Your Mind to Church

April 22, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

I want to share with you what the Lord was speaking into my spirit. (Up a little, brother.) I want you to hear what the Lord was speaking into my spirit as I was standing there.

The Lord said for me to tell you that some of you have come to His house this morning with a lot of other things on your mind. We all do that. We’re human. This is not a rebuke. Some things you’ve seen and things you’ve heard, and things have burdened you and troubled you, and you’ve brought that to the house of God.

And you know, that’s a good place to bring it, because you can leave it here. Hallelujah. He said, “Casting all your cares on me, because I care for you.” Now sometimes we tell people, “Don’t bring that to church,” but I’m glad you brought it with you this morning, because you can cast it at Him. And He’ll take care of it. He’ll lift the burden this morning.

Angels Preparing a Sustaining Meal

April 22, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

And as I was meditating on what the Lord had spoke to me, several other things I might mention later, I had a little vision. And I saw… This sounds very odd, and I’ve been known to see odd things. But I saw two angels from their hind… I want to say hind end, but hind part. They were bending over, forward. And all I could see was their hips, the back side as they were bending over that way.

And I said… And that’s all I saw for a few seconds. And I said, “Lord, what am I seeing? What are they doing? And as I was able to move just closer between them, I saw there was a little fire there, just a little, just a few little sticks that were laying there, and a little grill on top. And they were cooking. They were baking or making a round, very, very round and rather thick piece of bread, loaf of bread. And my spirit began to leap inside. And I said, “Lord, what is that?”

And the Lord said, “For those who will put aside these things and come and concentrate and worship Me,” He said, “I’ve sent my angels down to prepare a sustaining meal,” Hallelujah, “Even as I did for Elijah.” Hallelujah. When the race was about to be hard, when the mountains were about to be high and the valleys were about to be low, when he was going to have to go without, many, many days without food, God sent an angel. (Tongues.)

Thank You, Holy Ghost. God sent an angel to bake him a little loaf of bread. Glory be to God. He rose up and ate that bread and drank the water that had been provided. Hallelujah. The Bible said he went many days. Glory to God. Over forty days he went on the sustenance, on the strength of that one meal.

Now how many of you know if man would have made him a little cake, in a few hours it would have wore out. The fullness and the strength of man’s little cake would have quickly left him. But because angels made it, it was heavenly bread. Glory be to God.

The Time Is Nigh to Gather Jerusalem

April 24, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

“Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how often I had gathered you as a hen would her own, but ye have not.” Oh, but I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, “I shall gather her. Oh, the time is nigh that I shall gather her, saith the Lord. When I have done that which I have purposed to do in that city, it shall be a marvel to the whole world.

For yea, I shall defeat her enemies in such a supernatural way, in such a God-like way, that it shall baffle the enemies of Jerusalem. Yea, they shall run and hide. They shall flee from the face of God. For I shall deliver her with a strong and a mighty hand. And when I have finished My deliverance, she shall have no enemies, but all will be at peace with her, saith the Lord.” Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.

Wisdom to Know the Right & the Wrong

April 24, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Greeley

The Spirit of the Lord is revealing to me that as our pastor deals with the situation in the church in Edmonton, that he’s going to know who is right and who is wrong, even the same way that God gave Solomon wisdom with the two mothers over the child, and that He’s going to reveal it to him in that manner. Hallelujah, hallelujah.

I Will Exalt Them Who Pray for Her

April 24, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

As we were singing that last chorus, I heard the Spirit of the Lord say something else. I heard Him say, “I will chase them that chase her. And I will persecute them who persecute her.” But I heard the Spirit say, “And I will bless them who bless her. And I will exalt them who pray for her.” Hallelujah. So let’s remember her tonight. Oh, glory be to God.

Positioning for Birth

April 24, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I don’t know what you’re seeing, but that’s what I’m seeing. I’m seeing a babe. I’m seeing a baby that needs to be born. I see that little church, that little baby church that needs to be born, but there’s no strength. The children are come to the birth, and there is no strength to bring forth. Let’s pray the strength of God into that group, into the believers in that city. We pray strength to them, oh God. (Tongues.)

Even as we’re praying, I see God bending the knees. God said, “I’m bending the knees.” The Spirit of the Lord said, “I’m allowing these things to come to bend the knees, because the knees have to be bent for the position of birth. Oh, hallelujah.

In order for there to be a birth, there has to be a bending of the knee. Glory to God. And I see God bringing the bending to the knees. Hallelujah. Lord, let revival break forth. Let the Holy Ghost arise like a mighty warrior. Oh, let the birth come. Oh, yes. I hear the Lord saying, “I’m positioning her for the birth.” (Tongues.)

Relighting the Fire

May 1, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Greeley

Come unto Me, saith the Lord. Come unto Me, all ye that are weary, that are heavy laden. And put Me first, saith the Lord. Put Me first, and I will relight the fire that once burned strong within you, that once burned strong within you because I was first. But because you have put other things before Me, saith God, that light has grown dim.

And you’ve wondered why, why, why. It’s because you have put other things before Me, saith God. But if you will come before Me tonight and you will re-covenant with Me to put Me first, I will relight that fire, and I will make it burn bright, that the world can see that you have put Me first and that Jesus Christ lives within you, saith the Lord.

Taken to Ukraine & China, & Interceding for Israel

May 6, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Dream given to Brother Shelley

I had a dream last night. Saturday night is the night I dream the most. And I had a dream last night. And I dreamed that I was somewhere in a meeting in another country. I knew I was in another country. And a man came up to me, and he said, “I’m taking you right now to the Ukraine. I’m not letting you go home, but we’re going right now to the Ukraine. There’s a church waiting on you.” And he said, “When we leave there, we’re going to China.” And he said, “When we leave China, we’re going for three days to Israel. Then you can come home.”

And I said, “You don’t understand. I’ve already been gone several days, and I can’t be gone that long. How long will it take us to make that journey?” He said, “One month. You’ll be gone one month.” I said, “But I’ve already been gone several days now.” He said, “You can’t go home. The Lord has sent me to take you to the Ukraine.”

And I said, “Why are we going to Israel for three days?” He said, “For three days, you and I and others are going to be gathered together. And we’re going to be interceding and praying for Israel and for the things that are about to happen there.” And the dream was over.

The Reversing of the Flow

May 6, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I’m seeing a vision right now. I’m seeing a vision of the river. And I know where I’m standing right now, because I have stood in the restaurant with Brother Whittaker, with Brother and Sister Weir. I don’t know how many others. Probably perhaps at times there’s been twenty of us. We’ve stood at a restaurant overlooking the St. John. River. (Is that right? Is that the name of the river that flows through New Brunswick?) And there is a restaurant. I can… not in the restaurant, but an overlook near the restaurant, I was standing there just in vision just a second ago.

And people come from everywhere, Brother Kary, as a tourist place, because it is a reversing river. It’s a reversing river. Because it’s a title river, they call it. And the flow of the river will be going one way, and when the tide changes, the very flow of the river is reversed. Can you imagine? Only a title river could that happen in. No other river could do that, reverse its direction. But because of the…(Tongues.)

The Spirit of God just spoke into my heart as I was saying that to remind me what controls the tide. Can somebody tell me what controls the tide? The moon. Not the sun, but the moon. You know what Brother Branham said?

Brother Branham said in the revelation of Jesus Christ series, the moon has no light of her own. She represents the Bride. Because she only reflects the light of the sun. Hallelujah. He said the light that you see shining from the moon is only reflected sunlight. Hallelujah. And yet the moon with its reflected light is able to control the tides of every ocean in the world. And in this circumstance, even the flow of the river is controlled by the moon, the Bride. Glory be to God.

What I saw, I saw the water flowing quickly in one direction, and then it began to quickly flow in the other direction. And the Lord said that I should declare the reversing of the river, that I should declare the reversing tide (hallelujah), and the reversing flow right now.

In the Name of Jesus. The waters that have flowed, may they turn around and flow the other way, according to the will of God. We speak to the river. We speak to the situation. Come on. We speak to the circumstance. Hallelujah. And we command it to reverse and flow. We command you to flow. We command you to flow according to the mind of God, according to the will of God in this hour. We speak to the changing of the tide, the reversing of the river. They call it the Reversing Falls. (Tongues.)

Come on, somebody ought to catch that. Somebody ought to catch that with one word, He can change the flow of your life. With one word, He can change the direction and the course of your life. I see a situation. If everybody right now will just yield to the Spirit of God, He’ll bring the reversal. (Tongues.) Hallelujah. Hallelujah. (Tongues.)

How many of you know the river is to empty into the sea? The sea doesn’t feed the river. The river feeds the sea. The river, the ocean doesn’t empty into the river. The river empties into the ocean.

And yet there is a time at this river where the ocean is pouring into the river. And that’s not the will of God. That’s not the order of God. And so there is a time that the river is flowing contrary to the direction that it’s supposed to flow.

But because of the pull of the moon, because of the pull of the Bride, standing together in faith and spirit, unified in heart (hallelujah), the very moon causes the tide to change and speaks to the St. John River and says, “You’ve been flowing away from the ocean, but now it’s time for you to empty your water back into the bay.” Hallelujah, hallelujah… Hear the word of the Lord. Hear the word of the Lord.

Leave Behind the Grave Clothes & Come Forth to Fulfill Your Destiny

May 13, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

The Lord is speaking to me right now. And He said that I should declare over this body that you would be released to fulfill your destiny in Christ, that everything that binds you, every circumstance, every weight, every sin, every pain of yesterday that holds you from fulfilling your destiny in Christ, the Spirit of God has wooed me just now to speak, to declare, and to prophesy to you, come forth. The Spirit says, “Leave behind the grave clothes of the past life, and come forth this morning to fulfill your destiny.”

The Spirit was speaking earlier in this service, “Get out of the back of the line, and come to the front, and step up to the plate. Step up to the call, to fulfil what God has called you to fulfil. I release an anointing in this place for mothers in Zion to be raised up right now to mother, I’m not going to say the motherless, but I’m going to say, to mother those who need to be mothered in the Spirit, to nurture those who need to be nurtured in the Spirit.

I’ve Always Been Here

May 13, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Message in Tongues given through Sister Anne Tremain & Interpretation given through Brother Shelley

Even in that hour when you can’t feel Me, saith the Lord, even in that hour when all that you are, in all of that, you can’t sense Me and know that I’m with you, yea the Lord would say unto thee, still I am there. Even in the darkest moment, in the loneliest hour, still I am there. Even when you have not served Me, when you have not lived for Me, when you have not dedicated your life to Me, still I’ve been there, saith the Lord. And tonight it is not only I and My Spirit calling you, but I feel, saith the Lord, your faith, as it reaches out to Me.

Yea the Lord would say unto thee, you have My attention. Yea, you have My undivided attention. What is it that you need? Yea the Lord would say unto thee this night, what is it that you need? Is it a healing, saith the Lord? Yea the Lord would say unto thee, is it comfort? Is it peace? Is it deliverance? Is it My Holy Ghost? What it is that you need?

Yea I would say unto thee this night, I am here. And I have felt the call of your faith. And it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. Yea the Lord would say unto thee, present your need before Me. For yea, I say again, you have my attention. Your faith has touched Me, this night, and I have bent low into this house to give you that, that you desire.

For the Lord would say unto thee, “It is out of the depth of your heart that you desire it. For yea, I have searched thee and I have seen that it is not for selfish gain, but yea, it is from your heart that you desire to know Me in a greater way.”

The Lord would say unto thee, whatsoever ye ask and whatsoever you have need of, you can have it this night, according to your faith. Let your heart be lifted up into My Presence, saith the Lord. And My Spirit will minister grace, grace, grace unto you. For I have called you this way tonight to minister My grace unto you, saith the Lord of hosts.

An Eminent Earthquake

May 13, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

Hallelujah. While we were worshiping the Lord in the first part of the praise, I felt in the Spirit the platform shaking under my feet. And I considered that the base and the drums were loud, because sometimes you can feel the vibration in the floor. But I knew that the Anointing of the Lord was moving over my shoulders. I could feel that Presence of God. And I didn’t close my physical eyes. I closed my eyes in the Spirit, which means I drew my attention to the Lord. And I saw an earthquake. And I feel like that that’s what God was showing me.

And I want you to join with me in prayer right now. All I can tell you is, it’s eminent. I saw the nearness of it. I sensed the quickness of it. And I feel that perhaps… This is just me. But I feel that perhaps it’ll be before I leave the country, which is a week from tomorrow.

And I saw it in a poorer, very poor region of the world. But I saw also some very modern looking buildings that were crumbling, not just poor shanties, but I saw some more modern looking buildings, several stories… I counted in one five stories on top of the other. And I saw they were just almost sliding off. It’s a very odd thing when the earth shakes that way. It didn’t just fall in the middle. But it just as… It slid off of its foundation and crumbled.

I’ve been following the Lord in vision long enough to know that when God shows us something, He shows it to us for a reason. Perhaps tonight we could pray for lives, and we could pray for souls.

You see, somewhere in the world tonight there are people getting up and going across the floor, preparing for bed, preparing for work. So many things happen in the normal course of a day. And they have no idea that the ground beneath them is about to shake. But for a reason tonight, the Spirit of God has revealed it to those who are sitting here, standing here, so that we could pray.

I would want somebody somewhere to be praying for me, if I was facing what these people are facing. Somebody said, “There are earthquakes all the time.” That’s right. But God doesn’t forewarn us every time. He doesn’t show visions every time. But when He shows a vision, I’m going to pray. And I believe you will join me in prayer right now.

We don’t have to know where. I have a feeling in my heart and in my spirit that I could name the country, but to do that would be a bit presumptuous, because I don’t have it as a word from the Lord. So I’ll leave it at that and let God take care of everything. But if you care about people… You don’t know them. You’ve never met them. But I care about what people are going to experience.

Words of Deliverance in Due Time

May 20, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Brother Greeley

You have let it come out of your own mouth, “I have nothing to give.” But I, saith the Lord, put My words in the mouth of my prophets. My words shall come out of your mouth. And it will not be your own thoughts, saith the Lord. It’ll be My thoughts that My people have needed for weeks, for months, for years. Out of your mouth shall proceed words of deliverance, because I have put them in your mouth, saith the Lord. Take no thought what you shall say or how you shall say it.

For at the given time, it shall come out of your mouth. Don’t worry about what service you’ll say what, or when you’ll say it, because I will give you the unction at the precise moment, saith the Lord. When it’s all been said, when it’s all been done, you’ll know that I have spoken, and you will see the fruits, saith the Lord of hosts. (Tongues.)

No need to worry, saith the Lord, about what is taking place at home. No need to worry, saith the Lord. It would be your natural tendency to worry about your sheep at home. But no need to worry, saith the Lord. For they’re in My capable hands. I will work it all out to My glory, saith the Lord. I speak peace into your spirit. So saith the Spirit of the Lord. (Tongues.)

In Cursing You, They Cursed God

May 20, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jeffier Propst

And Daniel, him who has an excellent spirit before the Lord, they’ve come and they’ve tried to find occasion of fault in you. But they’ve made a mistake. They made a mistake. Because they rose up against your God. (Tongues.)

They have not cursed you, but they have cursed the Lord. And in doing so, they’ve brought the curse down upon their own head. Oh, anything, anything… (Tongues.)

Oh Father, I ask Thee, God, to put a wall of protection around Your vessel, Lord Jesus. Let it ricochet, Father, any attack, God, that may be pointed at him, Lord. (Tongues.)

Look to the Unseen

June 12, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I saw a bridge being built tonight in the Spirit, as I was worshiping the Lord, as Brother Jonathan was singing. I saw a bridge being built over a great divide. And I’ll tell you when I saw it. I believe we can all claim it. But I saw it when I was praying for Sister Propst. She came on my heart as I was sitting here worshiping the Lord, standing, worshiping the Lord.

And I saw a bridge being built over a great divide. And my faith was anointed to believe for the impossible. And I feel led to encourage you, Sister Propst, and the whole body to look to the unseen. Oh, hallelujah. Hallelujah. If it looked like God was going to do it, we wouldn’t have to believe in faith. So let’s just look to the unseen and know that He’s going to do it, no matter what it looks like.

Exhorting Us in Our Praise

June 19, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Message in Tongues given through Sister Helen Burgess & Interpretation given through Brother Shelley

I can’t get the word exactly like a declaration. Usually when I’m getting an interpretation, I get at least a sentence. But I can… I’m getting the mind of the Spirit, so I’ll tell you what I’m discerning that the Lord is saying. And then if somebody’s getting something else, don’t you let it intimidate you to speak whatever you’re getting.

But I was feeling like the Lord was exhorting us in our praise. I believe He was speaking to us a little corrective, but in love, concerning are… We need to re-emphasize our praise and our worship to the Lord. Because it becomes so ritualistic. We’re human beings. And whether you know it or not, we desire routine. It’s our nature to desire a routine, because it makes us comfortable to do the same thing over and over and over and over again. But we can do that without discerning the purpose. We can do that while missing the purpose.

And there’s something a little… I want to say dead, but I don’t want to be offensive. But there’s something a little hollow in the way we’re praising and worshiping the Lord lately. And I don’t believe it has anything to do with the leader. I believe that he is there to lead us in the right direction.

But it’s up to us to follow and to do our part. So I don’t want him to leave this place thinking that I’m speaking about him, nor do I want you to think… Because I think we have the best. But he can only pick the song as the Spirit inspires him. But he can’t bring us to that place… We’re missing that realm of standing in the Glory. We’re missing that. We’ve had it. I don’t know if you know it or not. Surely you must. We’ve had it. But we’re just missing that realm.

Glorify Me with Your Life

June 19, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Kary Payne

God said, “Glorify Me with your life. Your life is not your own, and My Spirit dwells in you, that you may be My body on the earth. And your life is to be lived for those that I would send you to, so that My Spirit may work My works in the earth through your body. Give Me glory with your life, with your life.”

Christ Is Our Head

June 19, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jan Salvador

Usually whenever there’s a prophecy that comes, you can feel it in the air; you can sense it. And this was the strangest feeling I’ve ever had, other than the, your hands going numb and your heart pounding, and the fear coming over you, because you don’t know what the Lord’s going to speak.

But it was like from my neck down, everything was in tune with what was happening, but my head was clear. My conscience… You know, everything was there normal in my head, but my body was totally separate. And it’s like Christ is our head.

The Lord Not Finding a Place

June 19, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

And I could see it several times since Sunday night. I could see that same little merry-go-round, not the kind with horses, but the kind with just the bars, and little children holding on to it and spinning around. And I could see as it were, the Lord just, with His foot raised up, trying to step on, trying to step on to the merry-go-round, but not finding a place. And that disturbs me, because I know that He represents all that we need.

If we need a word from heaven, He represents that. If we need deliverance, He represents that. But if somehow the Lord is not finding a place to get on, then we’re failing in some way. And I don’t think we ought to go home feeling mad or bad at ourselves. I think we ought to just spend a little more time, even as we did, worshiping Sunday night. It brings a different atmosphere.

But Brother Jonathan, he tries that, and we don’t always follow him. So he has to move on to another song. That’s all we know to do when we’re leading and people aren’t following. So I just know the Lord wanted me to say that.

Changing of the Season

June 24, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shane Vaughn

New Hope Revival Center. That’s the name of the church. Is that right? God sent me to prophesy to you this morning. You have a purpose, and your season is at hand. I see great changes coming to this ministry. And “Thus Saith the Lord,” there will be some that will not be ready for the change.

The Cloud is beginning to move, and this ministry will move with it. And there will be those that will say, “God, we can’t handle another change.” (I know I’m hearing from heaven.)

The Lord said to tell this Pastor and this church, be strong in the season and go forth where I send you. And it will be the birthing of a new day. For yea, the Lord would say unto you, that when this church sells, will be the end of this season and your new season will have come.

Now the church selling, Brother Shelley had mentioned to me. But when he’d mentioned it to me, the Lord said, “That’s what you came for to let this church know, this isn’t about signing a selling note. This isn’t about selling a building. It’s about ending this season and going on in God.”

I went and looked at your campground last night. And I want to say this from the Holy Ghost and you need to hear this. This Pastor has not told me to say this. That campground is where God wants this ministry to be. That’s “Thus Saith the Lord.”

Your new season is about to come upon you because God is going to send the nations to you, and you’re not prepared for your harvest. That’s why you haven’t had it. God said, “You’re not prepared, New Hope, for your harvest.” There’s no place to put them. “Oh, we can’t leave, we…”

You’d better not stand in the way. God will cut you off and this ministry will go forth without you. The campground is calling you. The purpose of God, I saw it last night, the end of this season is upon you. And when you step into the new season of God, God said, “You will never ever have the room to put the people.”

You’re staying in a season that’s about to end. “Bye, bye.” Oh, but you see, we get heart-ties to places and buildings, and… God said, “Trust Me one more time.” The people of this Message need a refuge to come to, and you have no place to put them.

Oh, you’ve got a couple of trailers. Honey, that isn’t the vision I’m talking about. I’m talking about places. You won’t charge them a thing. They’ll bring their families and they’ll bask in this revelation. But it will cost, it will cost sacrifice from the Body of believers. And it will cost sacrifice. And if you’re not willing to make it, somebody else is.

(God, I’m being bold, but I feel the…” If you’re not willing to make the sacrifice, somebody else will and you’ll miss out on the purpose of this ministry. The purpose of this ministry is not to have a church building that affects Cooper Creek Road. It is to have a haven for the world. God, I didn’t plan on going either. But God is speaking prophetically to this people.

You have not yet stepped into this next season. But when you do, God said, “Don’t go into it unprepared.” The worst thing you can do, Pastor, is go into the next season unprepared.

I’m calling on this church, I’m calling on this church, I’m calling on this church, “Prepare yourself for the battle, because you’re fixing to go into one.” Oh yes. You’re fixing to go into one. No, not from the world, but from your own people.

The voice of the prophet is speaking to you. It will come to pass not many days from now. This Pastor will begin to see the season of God, as it’s changing. And there will be some that will not go. But God said, I will replace thirty to every one, saith the Lord.

You can count them one day. There’ll be thirty to everyone. You’ll sit down and say, “Oh, poor Brother so-and-so, he didn’t come to this season or that season.” And you’ll say, “But there’s Brother, Sister, Brother, Sister, Brother, Sister…” There’ll be thirty to every one, saith the Lord.

If you’re not prepared to lose one to gain thirty, then quit praying for the next season. God told me to tell New Hope Revival Center, “This season has lasted till it’s ready to go. And the promise of this will be the soon selling of this building. I prophesy this to you. I’m not talking about months. I’m talking about [Ed., Brother Shane whispered ‘days’.] I’m talking about short seasons.

Pastor Shelley will e-mail me and he will fax me a copy of everything when it’s sold. And that’ll be the sign that this season has ended.

Touched by a Coal of Fire

June 24, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word directed to the Young Ministers

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shane Vaughn

Do we have any young preachers here this morning? We have any young preachers that feel God’s called you to preach? Raise your hands. Don’t you be ashamed. God bless you, bless you, bless you. Oh my God.

God spoke to me to take a coal and put it in your mouth this morning. I started preaching when I was fourteen years old, and I’ve never quit since then. I want to tell you what kept me in the House of God. It wasn’t great songs because, like Brother Shelley, my grandmother was my Pastor. (We have so much in common.)

She’s not the greatest of preachers. It wasn’t great preaching that kept me in the House of God. It was one or two times seeing the power of God that nothing else could ever compare with. Hollywood couldn’t produce a movie that could even come close to what I had seen in the altar.

Man of God, that God has called you to preach this Gospel. Forget your sermon and find you a coal of fire, and ask God to touch you this morning with power from on High.

A Shepherd to Lead the Flock

June 24, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Directed to Brother Shelley

Vision given to Brother Shane Vaughn

Pastor. I have a vision from the Lord.


I prayed this morning for the secrets of heaven, and God just showed me Pastor Shelley. I see you with the shepherd’s rod, the cane. I see you walking through the pasture. But the Lord said you’ve covered your face because of what other shepherds have said. The Lord spoke to me to reach here and grab that covering and take it off of you, and cause you to shine to the rest of the world.

“Shepherd, lead thy flock. Lead thy flock and I will cause the shame to be lifted. And your voice will be sought after, because My day of coming is at hand. And you have a message that I will give a voice to,” saith the Lord.

Hallelujah… The covering must be gone. Just move the covering off this church. Ask God to shine this message to the world. Ask God to shine this people to the world. Ask the Lord to shine you to the world. Hallelujah. (Tongues)

Church Being Beaten

June 24, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shane Vaughn

I want to be brutally honest with you and tell you what God is showing me right now. And I pray that there’s some deep spiritual people here that could understand this vision, that don’t take it for what it sounds like.

I see this church in a vision right now. (God, help me to obey Your Spirit.) I see people standing outside of this building (And God, God, God, I’ve never seen anything like it.) with whips, and they’re just beating the church. They’re beating the church. Just beating the church.

I see them taking advantage of the church. I see the church being broken by things that she’s supposed to have power over. And God sent me as a prophet right now (Don’t take that wrong. I don’t mean that to edify myself, but the voice is going to be a prophetic voice.)

God sent me to speak to this broken Body, “Get up. Stand up and take your place. Away with the criticism. Away with the misunderstanding of the outside world. Away from the names that they’ve called us. Away from the spirit they’ve projected us with and to God, we claim our victory and we stand in what God gave us through revelation.”

Somebody ought to shout hallelujah. Give God a handclap of holy praise. Give God a handclap of holy praise. Hallelujah. Wow. Wow. (Tongues) Hallelujah.

I feel like leaping for joy. I feel like leaping for joy. Hallelujah. Oh. God said, “Nobody’s going to beat My Wife.” The Lord said, “Nobody’s going to beat My Wife.” Oh God. My God, I’ve never had this many visions.

The Bride Giving Life to Things Around Her as She Weep

June 24, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shane Vaughn

Let me express a vision that God gave me while we were worshiping the Lord. I saw the earth in a vision. And I started to sit down and type it into my laptop computer. And I said, you know if I do this, they’re going to think I’m really off my rocker. And I just tried to remember it the best I could. And I want to share it with you. I like to give visions as they come, but it wasn’t my turn to the platform.

But I saw the earth this morning, the round earth. And in the earth I saw many, many, many, many trees. Millions, billions. The earth was covered with dead trees. And in far corners of the earth, in far corners of the earth… That’s almost a wrong statement. There are no corners, but the regions of the earth.

I saw vibrant beautiful electric green trees. Not very many, but I saw a few. And Pastor Shelley, the trees looked as if they were weeping. And rain was falling off the leaves of those trees and touching the earth.

And as I spoke, the Lord spoke to me to interpret this vision, He said to me, “The dead trees that you look upon is the church. She has a form of life, but no life inside of her. But those green trees that you’re looking at, that’s the Bride. That’s the ones that have health in them.

And as they praise Me, they drop life to the earth. They drop life to the earth.” The reason that God spoke to me that He has not destroyed the religions of the world is because there’s still a Bride that gives life to dead things. There’s still a Bride that when she weeps, she gives life to everything that’s dead around her.

This morning, could we drop a little water off those leaves? Raise your hands and just begin to worship Him. Drop a little bit of water off of those leaves this morning. (Tongues) As you drop that water, God is giving life to new things in the earth. As you drop that water, God is giving new life to dead things in the earth. Hallelujah…

The Lord spoke to me that the Bride of Christ is not just in one building, but she’s hidden away even in denominational churches. She’s hidden away. She sits on the back pew and she weeps for her Groom. And that’s why God brings revivals to dead churches that are bound by sin, because there is somebody in the Bride of Christ that never became a member of the church.

And she’ll just sit back there and just weep some tears. And God will bring life into a dead situation when the Bride begins to pray. When she begins to mourn, when she begins to weep, God sees that and He’ll send an outpouring of His Spirit. Hallelujah.

Preparing for the Big Wave

June 24, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

Well, I feel this morning… I feel tonight what the Lord gave me this morning. When we were worshiping the Lord, there wasn’t a time for me to share it. But I saw myself… I don’t usually see myself in a vision. But I saw myself laying on the beach. Don’t you make fun. I know “whale” come to your mind, or something like that. Oh, I… I didn’t even have a bikini on, I want you to know. I saw myself laying long ways on the beach, on the very edge of where the water was coming up. We’re going to be staying right on the water next week.

And I saw a big wave coming from a distance, way out in the deep. I saw little wave, regular waves. But way out… And there was a vibration in the water as the little waves were coming in. There was a vibration in the water. That’s odd. But the water was shaking like this. And I knew that it was shaking with the force of that great wave that was coming. And I said, “Let me get up from here. I don’t want to miss that wave when it comes.”

And in my spirit I was filled with a desire to be ready for that wave when it hit. I had a desire that it not roll over me, but that when it crashed that it would crash right on top of me. I knew that if I made one step too quickly that the wave would roll right over my head. And I remember in the Spirit feeling the importance of standing just in the right place, as that wave come in.

And I remembered as I was standing there the little book that has been read around the world, by Frank Bartlemon, an eye-witness of the Azuza Street Revival. It came with many different titles over the years. But one of the titles was, “Another Wave Rolls in.” And I could see that wave rolling in. Hallelujah. I don’t want it just to roll in for you, brother, sister. But I want to position myself so that when this new wave of God’s Glory comes rolling in, that it doesn’t roll over me. I want it to crash down on top of me and change me. Hallelujah. Glory.

Prophecy given through Brother Jonathan Hollis

Yea, for the Lord would say, I call thee into realms that you might soar. And I shall give thee winds, saith the Lord, that shall lift thee up. For there are those who are discouraged and who are flying, saith the Lord, not with Me. For yea, they have fallen. They have fallen, saith the Lord, from the heights. But I shall lift thee up. And you shall soar in the heavenlies, saith the Lord.

Yea, you shall soar in the Spirit in a place that you never dreamed you would soar. For I shall lift thee up. And he who has said, “How shall I soar again in the high place?” the Lord would say, I shall cause thee to soar. For I shall lift thee up. I shall draw thee into a realm, saith the Lord. And I shall cause you to ride upon the wind, to ride upon the high places, saith the Lord, that I have promised you.

For yea, this is the hour which I shall lift thee up. I shall raise thee up, saith the Lord, in the sight of all men. And you shall know that I have drawn thee, saith God, under my wings, under my wings, saith the Lord. I have drawn thee under my wings, saith the Lord.

And yea, I shall cause thee to drop that which I’ve given unto thee down unto them, and it shall lift them up. Yea, it shall lift them up, saith the Lord. It shall lift them up. It shall lift them up. It shall lift them up, yea, into the realms that I call them. (Hallelujah.)

For I am calling thee to be an example, to be a sheaf before men, saith the Lord. And as I have spoken unto thee, I shall do it, saith the Lord. For I speak it unto thee this night and declare it. Yea the Lord would say, go forth and do that which I have spoken unto you. And when you’ve done that, I shall give thee greater, saith the Lord.

Smelling Rain

June 26, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Carmen Lanier

When you took the platform tonight and began to preach, I looked at Mike and I asked him, I said, “Can you smell rain?” But I kept smelling rain. But when Jan said that, I know she felt silly to say it.

But I remember what Sister Vaughn said. She said it was a season of suddenlies. And I know what God started here on Sunday; there’s a flurry of activity in the heavenlies moving. Our minds are racing, and we don’t understand it all. But we know God is bringing His pieces into places.

Flurry of Activity

June 26, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jan Salvador

Every time during worship, I had my eyes closed, there was a flurry of activity around me. And I’d open my eyes, and there’d be nothing there. And now tonight when we come back up here, I’d have my eyes closed, and there’s this flurry of activity. And I open my eyes, and there’s nothing there. So I thought, well, I was just going to stand here with my eyes open. And every time I stand there with my eyes open, there’s nothing happening. So…

Come & Soar with Me

June 26, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Spiritual Song, Sung by Brother Jonathan Hollis

Come and walk in the high places.

Come and walk in the high places.

Come to the top of the mountain, said the Lord,

And behold the valley.

Come and soar with Me. Hallelujah.

Come and soar with Me.

Come and soar with Me.

Come and soar with Me.

Come and soar in the heavenlies.

I’m calling you to come.

I’m calling you as one.

Come and soar with Me.

Come and soar with Me.

Come and soar with Me.

Come and soar in the heavenlies.

For I’m calling you to come.

And I’m calling you as one.

Come and soar with Me…

I Will Shake that Which Is Not Found in Me

July 1, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Jonathan Hollis

Yea the Lord would say, I will shake. I will shake, I will shake all that is not found in Me. Yea, it shall crumble, saith the Lord. It shall fall. I will shake, I shall shake, I shall shake. Yea, all that is not hidden, all that is not hidden in Me, it shall fall, saith the Lord. Be found in Me, be found in Me.

Yea, be found on My foundation, saith the Lord. Be found on My foundation, saith God. Yea, be sure that your foot is steadfast, yea, that you are planted, saith God. Yea, you shall fall, you shall fall, you shall fall if you’re not planted. Be sure, saith the Lord, of your salvation. Yea, be sure of your foundation, saith the Lord. Oh, be sure. For I shall shake, I shall shake, I shall shake, I shall shake. I shall shake, saith the Lord. I shall shake.

There’s Going to Be a Shaking

July 1, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Enzo Salvador

I want to confirm what Jonathan just felt in his spirit. Because a few mornings ago in prayer, the Lord revealed to me that it’s going to be a shaking like an earthquake. When an earthquake comes, whatever you try to hold on to, it’s going to shake. And there’s nothing you can hold on to except the Lord.

Put on the Armor

July 1, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Carmen Lanier

I know this may sound silly. But as they were being prayed over, I felt like every one of them has to go through a step. And I know it sounds silly, but God said, “Put armor on,” to put every piece of it on, to go through the steps, to put on the belt of truth, to take your hands and lay on the breastplate of righteousness, to shod your feet with the Gospel of the preparation of peace.

He said take up the shield of faith, and put your helmet of salvation on, and take up the sword of the Spirit. But I believe God was putting it on my heart for each one of them to take that step and to make the motions and put it on.

Praying for Prophetic Intercession

July 1, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Carmen Lanier

Since Sister Betty had had that burden earlier, and I know that there’s something that keeps keeping us here… But Brother Kary, tonight when you had us cover our ears and pray for one another for that prophetic intercession, I feel… I don’t want to embarrass them or call them out.

But the young brothers, if they would come up here and let us stand behind them, and if one of the brothers would cover their ears… Whether you’re on an instrument or you’re on a camera, I feel led that we should surround these young men and pray over them before we go.

I Will Ascend

July 1, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Spiritual Song, Sung by Brother Jonathan Hollis

I will ascend to the hill of the Lord.

I will ascend to the hill of the Lord.

I will ascend to the hill of the Lord.

I will ascend. I will ascend.

I will ascend to the hill of the Lord.

I will ascend. I will ascend.

I will ascend to the hill of the Lord.

I will ascend. I will ascend.

One thing I ask, one thing I ask,

To ascend to the hill of the Lord.

One thing I ask, one thing I ask,

To live in the temple of the Lord.

One thing I ask, one thing I ask,

To live in the temple of the Lord.

One thing I ask, one thing I ask,

To live in the temple of the Lord.

Oh, who can live in the temple of the Lord?

Who can live in the temple of the Lord?

Who can live in the temple of the Lord?

Who can live in the temple of the Lord?

None but the holy and chosen of the Lord.

None but the holy and the chosen of the Lord.

Who can live in the temple of the Lord?

None but the holy and chosen of the Lord.

One thing I ask…

He’s high and lifted up in the temple of the Lord,

high and lifted up in the temple of the Lord,

high and lifted up in the temple of the Lord,

in the temple of the Lord.

One thing I ask…

Holy, holy is the Lord…

The whole earth is full of Your Glory.

The whole earth is full of Your Glory.

The whole earth is filled with Your Glory,

The Glory of the Lord.

Angels cry, “Holy is the Lord…”

Roll You Over the Tide

July 1, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Jonathan Hollis

Just then in the Spirit I could see a little hump or a small hill. And I knew that there was people who couldn’t get over that hump. Then the Lord reminded me of the old song that says He’ll roll us over the tide. And I believe that’s what the Lord wants to do for somebody tonight; you can’t make it over that hump, He’ll just roll you over that hump, to roll over the tide that’s coming in.

Be Ready for the Shaking

July 1, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Jonathan Hollis

In my flesh I don’t want to share this. But the Lord has been showing me. Several times during the service, I keep seeing a tree. When I was young, we had a plum tree. And when the plums became ripe, we would shake some of the limbs. The fruit that was ripe would fall off. But sometimes the fruit that wasn’t ripe would fall off. And I keep seeing God shaking a tree, shaking a tree. And I believe that tree’s us. And the Lord wants to shake.

But we need to be ready for the shaking. We need to all be ready for the shaking. Let’s pray right now that God would make us ready, make us ready, make us ready, make us ready. Before we are… Before we bring the harvest in from the earth, God wants us to be ready for the harvest amongst ourselves. He wants us to be ready. Just pray that the Lord would make you ready.

Speak for the Things You Need

July 8, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Message in Tongues & Interpretation given through Sister Anne Tremain

Prepare yourselves. Prepare yourselves. This is the time. This is the time. You’re not weak if you say you are strong. So let the weak say they are strong. And in this time I am the Lord thy God which healeth thee. I am the Lord thy God that giveth thee strength. Come to Me this day. Come to Me this day, because I am your sustenance.

Come to Me this day. Don’t say you’re sick. Don’t say you’re weak. Don’t say you’re fallen down. Don’t say you tremble beneath the load. Don’t say those things.

Speak, I say, this day. Speak for those things you need. Speak, speak, speak, My people. Speak for those things you need this day. Do it today. Do it today. I am that I Am. I am your strength. Hear Me. I am your strength. I am your strength.

Intercede that the Block May Be Moved

July 8, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Greeley

By intercession, saith the Lord. By intercession it shall be moved. I am calling to you tonight, who will intercede? Who will intercede that this may be moved? Who will intercede that the dynamite of My Spirit may move every block in the river? Who will intercede, saith the Lord? I have called you to fast and to pray. I have called you to pray and too fast. But who will intercede, saith God, that every stronghold would be break down, that everything that stands in the way of My flow would be moved out of the way?

Move toward Me, saith God. And let Me use you to be the dynamite that would move this obstacle that is in the river. Come unto Me, saith God, and let me use you, that I may move the obstacles.

(Tongues.) Not only will I use you, saith the Lord. If you will come unto Me, not only will I use you to move the block that is in the river, but in the purpose of moving this block in the river, I will use you to supply life. I will use you to supply life to those that are dry, life, I say. I shall supply life through you. I’m calling intercession, those that will intercede. (Tongues.)

They Shall Flow Again

July 8, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Jonathan Hollis

For there have been some, saith the Lord, who have said, “How? I cannot flow. I will not flow again. I shall not flow.” Oh, but they have forgotten, saith the Lord, what it is like. For yea, they have been caught in the mud, saith the Lord, when the river dried up in their life. But yea, when I cause the river, yea, when the river begins to flow again, they shall remember, saith the Lord. They shall remember, and they shall flow again, saith God. Oh, they shall flow again. They shall flow again. They shall flow again. Hallelujah, hallelujah…

Oh, they shall flow again, saith the Lord. Hallelujah… Yea, the marshy places shall know life again, saith the Lord. Yea, the marshy places shall know My river again. Oh, hallelujah. Oh, they shall not be sinking sand, saith the Lord, oh, but they shall be the river of My Spirit. They shall flow with the river of My Spirit. Hallelujah. They shall no longer be salty, but they shall be fresh and alive with My river.

Breaking Through the Dam

July 8, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Greeley

I want you to keep interceding. I see some of those sticks in the mud that are down river, I see them rising. I see them rising in the flow because somebody’s interceding. And the flow through that dam is becoming greater and greater, greater and greater. (Tongues.) Rising, rising, rising. (Tongues.)

Anchored to One Spot in the River

July 8, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given by Brother Greeley

I’m seeing something slightly different, though it goes with what these both have said. I am seeing that some people have plunged into the river, but instead of flowing with the river, they have anchored themselves in one spot. I can see an anchor tied to feet, locked on something in the bottom of the river. They’re not moving.

And behind them things are getting caught on a physical body. Different twigs and things of life, things that would flow in the river are getting caught behind this body. Somebody that desired to plunge in the river but wouldn’t flow with the river… Now what this anchor is I don’t know.

But I hear the Spirit speaking that some of those anchors are attitudes, locking down in one spot, the river flowing all around. I see the river flowing around people. But people are just anchored in one spot and not flowing with the river. Release these things to the Lord. Whatever is holding you in one spot, release it to the Lord so that you can flow with the river.

Opening Up Channels in Our Lives

July 8, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Jonathan Hollis

I’d like to share something I saw this morning in the service. I saw… Usually when I would see a dam that would be damming the river of God, I would see a natural wall that man has built up. But in this vision I saw a beaver dam. It was blocking the river. It was blocking the channel of God’s Spirit from flowing.

And I’ve saw this before where the beavers have built up the dam and the water has gathered in behind the dam, and it’s got filth. It’s got film that would cover the water. It’s got all kinds of trash that would be stopping because the dam… The trash would float on top of the water, and it can’t float through the dam, because the dam is blocking the flow. I hope you understand what I’m saying. It couldn’t flow through. The trash couldn’t flow through, and flow out of the river and the channel that I was seeing.

But I believe God wants to open up channels in our life that the enemy, and that we’ve allowed ourselves to build up, that would stop God’s river from flowing in our life, so that all the trash would be swept away, and that God’s fresh, living water would flow through us again. Hallelujah. Is that your desire tonight? Hallelujah…

Breaking Down of Dams

July 8, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Carmen Lanier

I keep seeing the two dams that you spoke of. The one dam that you said was manmade that was the stone and a tall one, it was like the Lord was showing me that that wall was built by man. And it takes years for that type of a dam to be built. But as you look at the beaver dam, it looks unorganized.

But it was like the Lord was showing me the business of that beaver is like our humanness, and what Brother Greeley was saying this morning we keep ourselves so busy. And I don’t know if you’ve ever had beavers on your property, but we have. And you can tear that beaver dam down, and within just a few days they’ve built it right back up.

And it’s like the Lord breaks through in our lives and we allow the things in our life to clog that channel back up. But the Lord wants that to be free so that, what Jonathan said, that pollution that builds up can flow out.

Root Being Pulled Out

July 8, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Esther Morales

I’m not used to coming up here. You all know that. But I seen this dam that you’re talking about. And it’s not the dam that we have to worry about, but there’s a root or something in the bottom that if it was loosened, the rest of it would flow away. I can see that if the root was pulled out, the water would rush through, and when it did, all of the smaller things would go with it.

Confusion of the Enemy’s Plot

July 10, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Jonathan Hollis

As we were praying in the prayer room before I came out, I shut my eyes, and just for a split second, I was looking down in the middle of a funnel of something. And I wasn’t sure exactly what it meant, but that’s the confirmation of the Lord. Hallelujah. It’s the confusion of the enemy, the confusion of the enemy’s plot. Hallelujah, hallelujah… The Lord Almighty reigns…

Banner Waving Before the Army of the Lord

July 10, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Jonathan Hollis

In the Spirit now, I can see a Calvary man or a horseman on his horse, with a large banner in his hand, waving it as he goes out into battle. I see it encircling as a large banner waving over the, waving before the army of the Lord. Hallelujah, hallelujah.

Warfare Praise

July 10, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Carmen Lanier

I saw what appeared to be a large, swirling, funnel-like cloud surrounding a group of people that appeared to be warriors. And as I was watching, it was as though we could see what we had been taught years ago when Brother Shelley taught us that the enemy is confused. When Judah would go out to praise, and they would begin to dance that warfare praise, and the enemy was being scattered. If we exalt Him, the enemy is going to have to flee.

Hooking Us to the IV Bag

July 15, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I saw in the Spirit like an IV bag hanging on a rolling pole, like they have in the hospital. And I saw the feed line coming out of it. And I saw that God was doing that in the Spirit right now for many of us.

When you’re… I’ve never had one. I’ve never been in the hospital overnight. And I’ve never had an IV. But when they start putting that… Sometimes it’s just a form of sugar. Sometimes it’s medication, all kinds of things, Sister Kay. But when you… When that starts going in your blood, you don’t just feel so good, you just jump up and start, “Oh, I’m better now. I was weak, but now I’m strong.”

It takes some time for that nourishment or that medicine to get… Even though it’s faster putting it into the veins, it still takes a while for your blood to carry that medication or that nutrition to the various extremities of your body. But I saw tonight that as we’re standing here in this atmosphere of love (that’s what I feel) that God desires just to hook some of us up to that IV line. Oh, hallelujah.

Somebody said, “What’s in the bag?” Whatever you need. If you need healing, there’s healing in the bag. If you need deliverance, there’s deliverance in the bag. If you need encouragement, there’s encouragement. Whatever you have need of. Hallelujah. Let God just cause it to flow into your spirit right now and deeply into your soul. You may not immediately know that you’ve been touched.

You may not immediately know that you’ve been ministered to. But I guarantee you, when you go out of here, you’ll begin to notice that… Oh, hallelujah. You’ll begin to notice that God has poured something into you.

The Quick, Short Work

July 15, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

That night I was praying with some friends, and the Lord showed me something else. And I wrote it down. He showed me that there were several there with sand, handfuls of sand. (I was distracted because of the gold dust that came on my hand there. As I glanced down, it just distracted me.) But anyway, there was handfuls of sand being added… You’ll have to give me a minute now. I’ve lost my train of thought. I should have read it.

I saw different ones reaching down and taking handfuls of sand and sprinkling it to the top of the wall. And I didn’t know… I don’t know if people do this or not. But I didn’t know what they were doing. But the Lord spoke to me, and He said, “I’m giving them what they’re supposed to do. I’m showing them what to do.”

And by sprinkling that sand and then pushing the stone in place, it evidently reduced the friction of stone on stone. And evidently, because of those little grains of sand… Seem to me like maybe it would make it harder. But in this vision, it made it easier. And the rock, as they were able to get it up, it just rolled into place almost, just slid into place.

And then the Lord spoke to me and He said, “When this new row of stones is in its place, when they’ve been added to the wall…” Not all of them had to be put there with the help of sand, but some of them did. But He said, “When this new row of stones has been added to the wall, it will be time for the finishing stones.” And I didn’t know what the finishing stones were.

So I turned in the vision, and I saw them piled there. And they were ornament… They were cut on top differently than those flat stones that just slid across. These on the top had a roof-like design, almost like a pyramid, an angular design that was cut like that on the top. And they were the finishing stones. They were the ones that made the wall complete. They weren’t just there for strength to the wall, but they were there also to make the wall complete.

And I said, “Lord, when those finishing stones are being added, what is that?” And He said, “That’s the quick, short work.” The quick, short work is going to be adding those finishing stones.” But He said, “There’s a great work that has to be done now before that quick, short work.”

And I knew in the Spirit that that work that needed to be done now was getting that last row of stones in place. And I began to think about people that I knew and know and love. And I thought, “Surely, Lord, that one is one of those last rows of stones that has to be added to the wall.”

Have you followed me at all? I believe what the Lord was showing me was, He’s getting ready to place us in our position on the wall. I believe that He was showing me that things that have never come together are about to come together. Hallelujah. Finding their place. And where we’ve not been able to do it by ourselves, the Lord is unifying. Four or five people were coming together to do it.

And then when we weren’t able to do it even like that, the sprinkling of the sand on top of the wall… I believe it came like a revelation, so that these stones were more easy to slide into place. Brother, it’s that serious of an hour, this one right here. It’s that serious of an hour, that we don’t need to wait until tomorrow to get right with God.

Health to Your Bones

July 15, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I see bones being strengthened in the Spirit (glory to God), God adding health to your bones. Glory to God. Oh, thank You, Lord. Thank You, Jesus.

Stones Being Slid into Place

July 15, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

And while I was praying, the Lord gave me a vision. And He showed me a wall that was made of large stones. They were rough stones on the face. The face of the stones was roughly cut. But the tops and the bottoms of them were smooth cut. They were very large on this wall. And I knew in my spirit… I don’t know how I knew it, but I knew in my spirit that the wall was about two-thirds of the way finished. I don’t know how I knew that. I just looked at it and knew. I don’t know how I was supposed to know how tall it was supposed to be in the first place, but God just dropped that into my heart.

And I saw that to the left and to the right of this wall, or to the left and the right of me was a pile of stones, just like the ones that were on this wall. And I saw that there was not a lot of… There was no pulleys or anything like that. But I could tell these stones would have probably been as large as the top of this table. And I knew they were solid. And I knew they were heavy. And I wondered how they would be added to the wall.

And I saw that it was taking four or five, sometimes five people to lift them. And even at that, it looked like such a struggle to lift them onto the wall. But I could see the struggle and the all the shifting and the moving around, as they had piled up some stones on the bottom, and they were standing on top of them. Such a struggle, you know, heaving these stones on top.

And I could hear all day long and all night long, I could hear the sound of those stones scraping across the wall, that rock on rock, that stone on stone, just gritting, scraping, as these stones were being slid. The Holy Spirit said they were being slid into place.

And then the Lord spoke to me and He said, “When this new row of stones is in its place, when they’ve been added to the wall…” Not all of them had to be put there with the help of sand, but some of them did.

But He said, “When this new row of stones has been added to the wall, it will be time for the finishing stones.”

And I didn’t know what the finishing stones were. So I turned in the vision and I saw them piled there. And they were ornament… They were cut on top differently than those flat stones that just slid across.

These on the top had a roof-like design, almost like a pyramid, an angular design that was cut like that on the top. And they were the finishing stones. They were the ones that made the wall complete. They weren’t just there for strength to the wall, but they were there also to make the wall complete.

And I said, “Lord, when those finishing stones are being added, what is that?”

And He said, “That’s the quick, short work.” The quick, short work is going to be adding those finishing stones.” But He said, “There’s a great work that has to be done now before that quick, short work.”

And I knew in the Spirit that that work that needed to be done now was getting that last row of stones in place. And I began to think about people that I knew and know and love. And I thought, “Surely, Lord, that one is one of those last rows of stones that has to be added to the wall.”

Have you followed me at all?

I believe what the Lord was showing me was, He’s getting ready to place us in our position on the wall. I believe that He was showing me that things that have never come together are about to come together. Hallelujah. Finding their place.

And where we’ve not been able to do it by ourselves, the Lord is unifying. Four or five people were coming together to do it. And then when we weren’t able to do it even like that, the sprinkling of the sand on top of the wall…

I believe it came like a revelation, so that these stones were more easy to slide into place. Brother, it’s that serious of an hour, this one right here. It’s that serious of an hour, that we don’t need to wait until tomorrow to get right with God.

The Campground Flooded

July 29, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

As I started to doze off… I think I dozed off. I jolted up in the bed. I came to myself. And I said, “Stacey, I just saw a vision.It could have been a dream, because I don’t know if I dozed off or not.I think we were just talking, so I’m not sure what it was.” But I said, “Honey, I’ve just seen a vision or a dream.”

She said, “What was it?”

And I said, “I saw the campground flooded. It was completely flooded.“And I said, “I know it was God,because the top of the hill was under water. That would have to be God, because we’re just sitting on the side of a hill.”

This used to be almost straight down right here.And I don’t know how many tons,but hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of tons of dirt were taken from the top of the hill and put on this slope, so that we could have a tabernacle here.

And I saw the top even covered in water. And as I told it, I said…But it started out, this vision started out, or dream or whatever, I was standing by this little river that we’ve built. But I was standing there.And there was a man standing across from mewith a spear in his hand.And he was looking into the river, that little stream of water. He was looking into that stream of waterwith this spear in his hand, as though he was just ready to spear something.

And all of a sudden, he thrust that spear down into that little water, and he pulled up something that looked like an eel.It was about this long, and it was silver and flat.It was not a snake.It was a fish of some kind, or like a fish,but it was long and silver.And when it came up out of the water,I could see it just flapping for its life.

Somebody said, “My, you have crazy visitations and experiences.” But I’m telling this from the Lord.

It was just wiggling like that, flopping around.And all of a sudden, when that thing was thrust down,he thrust that spear down and took his foot and stomped that eel. When he did that, that pool of water began to overflow.And when it overflowed,I saw it coming with the force of waves like tidal pulls,until it had covered this entire campground.And when I came to myself,I saw the water headed to Mr. Long’s place.And I said, “Somebody ought to tell himthere’s a flood coming his way.“And I came to myself.

Cutting Asunder the Very Things that Chained Us Back

July 30, 2001 (Monday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

Yea, from behold the Lord would say unto thee this night, surely I am coming your way, saith God. Yea, I am bringing an army with Me, saith the Lord. Yea, even the host of heaven shall come. And yea, I shall cut asunder, saith the Lord, every band. Yea, I say unto thee, every band of wickedness, yea, I shall cut asunder every chain of bondage, saith the Lord.

And yea, I shall turn the captivity, not of one, but of many, saith God. For yea, the Lord would say unto thee, when these meetings have come to an end, you will know that I have come to fight the fight, saith the Lord. For I shall turn the captivity of many, and I shall roll the darkness back, saith the Lord. And My Glory and My Light shall spring forth upon thee.

Yea, the backsliders will continue to come home, saith God, for I am cutting asunder the very things that chained them back and hold them back from Me, saith the Lord. I shall fill these altars, saith the Lord, with hungry hearts, and I shall satisfy the longing of their soul, saith the Lord.

Satan Running from Us

July 30, 2001 (Monday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Garvis Hendrix Jr.

I’d like to tell something that happened to me the last time Casey was in the hospital, about three, four weeks ago. I was over in the parking garage praying where I normally go to pray when we’re over there. And I was kind of nervous and all because we really didn’t know what was holding for her with this new fungus coming on. And I began to pray.

And the Lord showed me in the Spirit that in times past we would stand and face Satan face to face, toe to toe, and fight Him. That’s the words the Lord used. But this time when He showed him, he was running away from me. And as he was running away, I was chasing him, he was throwing back over his shoulders.

And the Lord was showing me and telling me in the Spirit that what was coming with Casey this time, the illness coming on her and all, was just pot shots that Satan was throwing. He was just throwing He was just throwing every punch he could throw, just trying to get something, some last nick in.

And I believe the Lord was speaking to me and telling me, not only for her, but I was representing the Bride of Christ chasing after Satan, as he was running from me. Satan is on the run from the Bride tonight. He’s on the run and he knows, Satan knows tonight that we are coming to our position, our place in God. That we recognize who we are and Satan’s on the run tonight. He’s a defeated devil.

Open the Gates

July 30, 2001 (Monday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Jonathan Hollis

Just recently I’ve read a book called “Watchman Prayer” by Dutch Sheets. And in the book he was talking about the watchman in the Bible, how the watchman of old would be upon the wall. And when they saw the enemy coming, they would know to shut the gates. They could holler down to the people who were standing there at the gates to open them, to shut the gates.

But when someone from inside the city, or a good message or whatever would be coming in, they would holler down to this, to the opener of the gates, to open the gates so that they could come in. And I believe the Lord wants us tonight to open the gates to let in the horses that are coming.

Rumbling in the Distance

July 30, 2001 (Monday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Judith Schapals

Several days ago, when I was praying, in my spirit I heard a rumbling in the distance. And the rumbling sound was as if there were many horses coming in this direction. At the time it felt like the rumbling was, what was approaching us from the heavenlies. Looking up the word rumbling, it means to rage war.

And war is the Sword of the Lord. In Jeremiah, chapter 47 it tells about the destruction of the Philistines, as the overflowing flood of the land. And the noise of the stomping of the hooves of the strong horses. And I believe our enemies, our enemies are being destroyed because of the supernatural storm.

A Turning Point

July 31, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

For the Lord would say unto thee this night. Yea, from behold many of you that have come into this place, you are not here by accident, saith God. But I have drawn you here even by My Spirit.

Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, there is a turning point. Yea, I say unto thee, there is a turning point for you. Yea, many of you that have come into this meeting tonight will recognize My anointing in your life. You’ll recognize My touch before You leave, saith the Lord. And yea, you shall surely and quickly make a turning point.

Yea, the things that have once satisfied you will satisfy you no longer, saith the Lord. And you will not be satisfied with church as usual, but you will hunger and thirst, yea, for the supernatural, saith God. For yea, do I declare unto thee this night that across this world I am moving upon My people, yea, those that are Mine.

Yea, those that I have called out by My Name, yea, and with My hand I have drawn them forth, saith the Lord. And surely, they shall turn, they shall no longer walk in their way, but they shall begin to walk in My perfect will, saith the Lord. Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper.

And yea, the things that I have done for thee in the past, yea the Lord would say, they do not even begin to compare with that which I am about to do for thee. And I say unto thee again, thou hast not come this way by chance. But I have drawn thee by My Spirit. Now open unto Me, saith the Lord, and I will fill you with My Glory. You shall go forth from this place in My power and in My anointing. And you shall know that I have changed the season of your life, saith the Lord.

Your Feet Shall Walk a New Path

August 1, 2001 (Wednesday Evening)

Prophecy given by Brother Jonathan Hollis

Yea, the Lord would say, this is the night of deliverance. This is the night of deliverance, saith the Lord. Leave behind the chains. Leave behind the fetters, saith the Lord, and walk into the freedom that I have chosen for thee. Yea, walk into the freedom that I have bought for thee, saith the Lord, for ye shall walk in this freedom, saith the Lord.

Yea, your steps shall be ordered of Me. Your steps shall be ordered of Me, saith the Lord. And I shall cause your feet to walk upon a new path. Yea, they shall walk upon a new path, saith the Lord. Yea, a path that leads upward. Yea, a path of freedom. Hallelujah. Go free in My Spirit, saith the Lord. For I have chosen freedom for thee. I have chosen freedom for thee, saith the Lord.

Tasting the Honey of the Lord

August 1, 2001 (Wednesday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Shane Vaughn

For yea, if thou wilt but walk softly, saith the Lord, I will drop honey upon thee, and I will cause thy weary bones to be made new again. I will drop honey upon thy lips, that thy song may be sweet again, saith the Lord. If you will walk softly before Me, I will drop honey upon thee as rain falleth from the heavens. And this honey shall give you the sweetness that’s missing from your life, saith the Lord.

The sweetness that’s missing from the pain that you’ve been experiencing, the heartaches that you’ve endured, the ridicule that you’ve suffered, the honey of thy spirit shall overtake thee and you shall be sweet in My Presence, and you shall know that I, the Lord, have touched you. For this is the night that I have come. This is the day of the week, and the hour that I have come to bring new life into thee, saith the Lord.

Ye shall leave this place and know that you’ve tasted the honey of the Lord. If you want to draw nigh right now, I will drop honey upon thy lips. As you worship Me with mouths open, I will drop the honey of the Spirit upon you, and you shall go forth in the song of the Lord. And you shall go forth in the praises of the Lord.

Come & Walk on the Water with Me

August 1, 2001 (Wednesday Evening)

Spiritual Song, Sung by Brother Shane Vaughn

For yea, the manifestations of the Lord shall be upon us this night. Prepare your eyes for things that possibly we’ve never seen. For in this world the Lord can manifest Himself in new a way that our hearts are ready to receive.

And I’ve been taught by Sister Ruth not to do this, but if you’ll just slide me up to b-flat. I hate to break that flow, that if you could do that as smoothly as possible. Hallelujah. Hear this song coming from the Lord.

Come on walk on the water with Me.

Come on and walk on the water with Me.

You will not fail. You will not fail.

Come on and walk on the water with Me.

Come on and walk on the water with Me.

You will not fail. You will not fail.

The Lord is saying this to somebody tonight.

Come on and walk on the water with Me.

Why don’t you walk on the water with Me.

‘Cause you will not fail. You will not fail.

The Positioning of the Arrow

August 2, 2001 (Thursday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

I’m getting, I heard the Voice of the Lord say. He was speaking to me concerning arrows. Last Friday night during the prayer watch. I don’t know what time it was, Jonathan. It must have been about two? Or earlier? When we were here, around two, when we left. About two in the morning on Saturday morning, Jonathan went out and got some sticks. He said, I feel like beating the ground.

I preached that message all over the world. “Don’t stop short of the victory.” Keep beating. We are praying specifically about some people’s needs and deliverance in their life. He got down and he began to beat the ground with those sticks. But tonight, I heard something like this in the Spirit before, it seems like. But tonight, the Lord was speaking to me about the poising (not poison) positioning of the arrow.

The first thing He said was this. “Do not be afraid.” (He’s speaking to me.) “Do not be afraid. I have found the target. I found the target.” Then He said, “I’ve made contact with the target.” And He said, “The arrow is poised, and it’s the arrow of deliverance.” The heart of man is the target. God wanted me to tell you tonight that He’s got an arrow of deliverance poised. He’s touched your heart. He’s found your heart.

You say, “Who is that for?” Anybody in this place that needs the Lord’s deliverance in their life. I need deliverance today. And if I know this fight of faith, I’m going to need it tomorrow. And I’m probably going to need it the next day. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll need the Lord to bring me deliverance over something else than what He brought me victory over today. But we’re going to need His victory daily, and we’re going to need His deliverance daily.

As I was sitting on this platform, my body began to tremble. My nerves, my nervous system began to shake. I could feel my insides trembling. And I said, “Lord, what am I feeling? What is that?”

And the Lord said, “You’re feeling the nervousness of that spirit that binds, constricts to destroy. And I saw it like a Boa Constrictor, how it slides up almost innocently, slyly, and it begins to sing its song or speak his little enticing words.

Like that little serpent that the story. I don’t even remember where I heard the story. Perhaps you all do. But that little snake. Maybe it was a fable or a parable or something. I don’t remember where I heard it. But it’s like that little snake that said, “Take me in your bosom. I’m cold.” (Wasn’t it something like that?) “But you’re a snake.” “Yes, but I’m just a baby. I’m just a little.. I can’t hurt you. Just take me up.”

How many of you have heard it? I don’t remember where I heard it. “Take me in your bosom. Just hold me and keep me warm. I’m going to die. I’m just a baby.” And oh, the conversation went on and on and on. (Perhaps it was an ancient fable or something.) The conversation went on and on. And finally the young boy, or the man was persuaded. “Well, it’s just a little snake.” Picked him up and the serpent bit him on the hand.

And he said to the serpent. “I thought you told me that you wouldn’t hurt me. I thought you told me you wouldn’t bite me. You said you were just a little snake, just a baby, and you couldn’t hurt me. But I’m dying. I feel the poison. I know that I’m dying.” And the little serpent said to the man. “You knew, you knew when you picked me up, that I was a snake. I only did what snakes do.” Say amen?

I could feel that spirit operating like a Boa Constrictor. How they slide in and they begin to make their coil, they begin to nuzzle up to their prey. Almost like they’re going to romance them or snuggle with them, and then all of a sudden the muscles of that body begin to constrict, and they begin to tighten up and they begin to squeeze around the victim, until the life is squeezed out and prey is dead.

I felt the nervousness of that constricting spirit tonight. And I know why nervous, it’s nervous. It’s because of the anointing of the Holy Ghost in this place. And it gives me great delight to know that God has somehow broken through with enough of his anointing in this House, that every spirit of hell that binds you, every spirit of hell that troubles you, has to shake under the knowledge that God has already taken up the bow. He has already aimed and found His position.

And He knows the target of your heart. And He’s poising His arrow this night, hallelujah, to give you the deliverance that you need forevermore. Then the last thing He told me was this. He said, “Think not that this deliverance is a temporary fix.” But He said, “The deliverance that I have purposed will not fix you temporarily, but it shall change you for all eternity.

Tabernacle of the Congregation

August 4, 2001 (Saturday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shane Vaughn

The Lord said for me to tell this people, prepare to have your thinking challenged. Because as new comes, new testings’ come. And as new victory comes, new battles come. And this ministry, the Lord would say this to thee… Oh, if I knew it wasn’t the Lord, I wouldn’t even say it.

But this ministry must release your hands from the work of God, and let God have it. What do I mean by that? Your hands and the way you want it to go is not the way God will do it. He will do it His way or no way. He will bring deeper revelation to you, and you may not be ready for it. But you must say, “It’s not in my hands. I release this ministry to the hand of God and the hand of my pastor.”

This ground… The reason I’m saying this tonight, because I’ve fallen in love with this ground, and I know that Satan would love to have it. And how does he have it? By using God’s people to keep it. Don’t you… I ain’t talking about compromise. That’s not what I’m talking about. I’m not talking about letting the world in here and letting the devil… I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about something so new that maybe even I’m not ready for.

But this ministry will go only as far as you will allow it to go. God said to tell the ministry tonight, remove thy hands. And next year I’m believing that there will be overflowing people that will flock these grounds. I know you don’t believe that, because you were told that last year. But if you’ll believe it, you will see it. This shall happen unto thee, saith the Lord.

There is a new day dawning, saith the Lord. I see a new sign and a new moon, saith the Lord. Thy ways are not My ways. Rise up with the morning, saith the Lord. Fly, fly, fly, fly, fly. Take your head from the ground. Plant it in the clouds, saith the Lord. Hallelujah. I say this prophetically. This will not be a Branhamite tabernacle. It will not be a Heflinite tabernacle. It will not be a Shelleyite tabernacle. It shall become a tabernacle of the congregation, saith the Lord. It shall become a congregation, the tabernacle of the congregation.

And this congregation that I see is a faceless congregation. I’m looking and I see no noses, no eyes, and no mouth. I only see bodies. For the Lord said, “Those that I will send to thee shall not even look like thee, but you must allow them in, that they might become like thee, saith the Lord. Take your hands from it, and My hands shall be upon it, saith the Lord.

And yea, there are four people who have rebellion in thy heart toward the leadership of this church. And the Lord would say unto thee, either you move towards repentance, or I will expose thee, that others might fear. And yea, thy hands and thy mouths as of late has been towards ungodly things.

But I call thee tonight to unify thyselves unto the tabernacle of the congregation. I say tonight, find thy leader and repent to him somberly, that the plague of God not come upon thee, that the curse of God not be upon any part of this congregation. For there shall be sin that God shall root out of His Bride, either willingly, or it shall be by divine revelation. For the Lord said again, this is My house, and I will let My Glory be shared with no other.

Could we let the Lord know how much we love Him tonight? Hallelujah… You are the one that healeth me. You are the Lord, my healer. I have to take one more step tonight. (Tongues.) Oh, the Lord’s going to finish just what He started in thee. Honey, that wasn’t a courtesy drop. That was a real one there. Hallelujah. For I am working within thee.

Grab Hold of the Vision

August 4, 2001 (Saturday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shane Vaughn

God told me to tell this body of believers tonight to grab hold of the vision of this ministry. He said never become stingy with your pastor. Let him go the nations of the world.

Covered in Honey

August 4, 2001 (Saturday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shane Vaughn

And Brother Shelley, I see in vision right now… Brother Heisey gave me some honey tonight, because he felt like I needed more than just a little taste, evidently. And Brother Shelley, the Lord just showed me something in vision concerning you. The Lord showed me you covered in honey.

And as you’re going to the nations of the world, the Lord said the honey will attract people back to the camp, to this ministry. This honey will be like it attracts flies, and it… It will attract the nations of the world into this humble camp.

And I believe tonight that the best days of this ministry are just ahead. And if you believed it just then, you would have rejoiced with me. I believe the greatest days are just ahead. Hallelujah. Oh, my voice is coming back now. Hallelujah. Praise the Name of the Lord. The greatest days of ministry are just ahead.

Today my wife went shopping after the lunch. And she came back to the hotel room where I had been wrestling with the boys. I was so glad to see her. Oh. She comes back; there’s potato chips all over the floor, just, they destroyed the room. And of course, me, I’m too busy studying.

“Why didn’t you take care of the boys?” “Honey, I got to preach tonight.” But nevertheless… You’re going to have to give me a few minutes to get my voice, so that’s what I’m doing.

But nevertheless, she came to the room. And she pulled out our laptop computer, and began typing. And she didn’t want me to look at what she was typing. And any time my wife gets on a computer typing and don’t want me to look, I’m going to look. And she said, “Don’t look just yet.”

And when she was through, she gave me the computer, and I read what she had typed. And oh my, what a vision God gave her today, concerning this campground. And she submitted that to me, and I’m going to share it with you. Oh, it’s so wonderful. Thank You, Lord.

My wife is a woman of God in the fact that she hears from God. I want to encourage all the women in this so-called Message movement. God can use you in many ways besides the pulpit. You can win the world without a microphone. You can preach this Gospel to the next door neighbor, to your lost husband. God wants to use you in some way or another. I know that goes against the grain, but God wants to use everybody in this last day.

He told my wife today… She said, “Honey, I was…” We had just got through watching this CDD, I believe they’re calling them, or whatever. What is it, Brother Tebo? Yes. We put this on our computer. It was the first time we had ever seen Brother Branham minister in person. We’ve heard a lot about him, some good, some bad. You know how it goes. You’re going to hear good and bad about me as well. And I’ve already heard about you. Hallelujah. So neverthe… Come on, people. Come on, people.

But we’ve never had a chance to see him minister in… And we put this in the computer. And I’m not a man follower. I’m a woman follower. I followed her all the way to the church to marry her.

But we were completely transfixed for an hour. Any time you have two boys, and they’re running rampant, and you can still watch a video without blinking your eye, you’re transfixed. And we watched as Brother Branham ministered. And truly I have to say this. I can’t verify his ministry, because the fact I didn’t know him. But I would have to say he was a man sent from God. I had never seen such specific gifts of the Spirit in my life.

You know, I was tempted… He told one woman her name and her address. And the old devil rose up in me and said, “Somebody had to show him a card or something.” You know how the devil does. There’s so much fake out there.

But when looked… I don’t know if anybody else… Nobody’s told me this. But something about the man’s eyes, something about those little eyes told you he was of the Lord. And my wife came running back in the room. And she said, “I went by the camp, and here’s what I saw.”

Crowns Laid on the Campground

August 4, 2001 (Saturday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Michelle Vaughn

She said, “I saw three people.” It’s okay if I don’t get loud and preach. I mean, I just want to just share with you what God’s doing on this campground. She said, “I saw three people walking on the campgrounds. The first person I saw was Brother Branham himself.” She said, “Walking with him, I saw…” Now many of you may not know this person, so it won’t mean anything to you. But she said, “I saw Sister Ruth Ward Heflin walking with Brother Branham.” Now there would be an oxymoron to some, because of his belief in women preachers.

But see, Sister Ruth was really not a woman preacher. She was a Miriam. She was a praise and worship leader. And Michelle said, “I saw them two walking to the tabernacle.” And she said, “There was a third man that I had never seen before that was walking with them.” And she said, “They entered into the back of the building, and they walked onto the platform.” And she said, “There was a congregation of people in the audience.”

And she said that Sister Ruth and Brother Branham and one other… From the description, I think I know who it is. But she said they began to talk among themselves. And Sister Ruth would look out over the congregation and tell Brother Branham, “Now those are the ones that followed my ministry.” Brother Branham would point to those and say, “Those are the ones that followed mine.” And there was another brother that said, “Those are the ones that followed mine.”

And together… This is going to touch you very deeply when you hear what God’s about to say. All three of those figures reached behind them, and they pulled a crown from behind them. And it was in the palms of their hands. And they took these crowns. And they laid them on this pulpit, all three of them. And the Lord spoke to my wife that this campground would be a culmination of hungry followers that are looking for that crown that was upon their leaders.

It’s not time to quit yet, people. The ministry is just beginning. There’s a whole world that’s looking for this place. Would we give God a praise offering tonight? Hallelujah… Brother Shelley, I believe that third person, the Lord just showed to me, was your granny. That was the third person. In my own self I believe that.

And if you’ll look across this pulpit, you’ll see a man that’s been heavily touched by Brother Branham’s ministry, a man that’s been heavily touched by Sister Heflin, and I’m sure whoever else… God will fill the third one in. But I believe three quarters of this vision is already in place. God is going to bring them from the north, the south, the east, and the west. And they’re going to smell the honey and be attracted to this place. Amen. Hallelujah…

The Lord would encourage this church, treat these grounds gently, because there’s been valuable crowns that have been laid here, that you must protect them. And you must wear them with grace. The greatest thing in all my life… Brother Vaughn prays for people…

Our Brother on the organ, would you play the mountain music louder now? Play it from the mountain.

Troubles Rolling Away when Standing on the Mountain

August 5, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Garvis Hendrix, Jr.

I seen from the top of the mountain, as I was standing worshiping the Lord from the top of the mountain, the clouds just began to roll away. The Lord was showing me all troubles, all pain, all sickness and illness just rolling away as I was standing in His Glory on top of the mountain.

Restoring the Youth of Their Spirit

August 5, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shane Vaughn

I want every one that’s receiving visions of the Lord to just come sit by me on the steps and give those visions. For I see in the Spirit right now, that mountain. And yea, I see the whole congregation as little children sliding down the mountain, and running back up and sliding back down. I see the congregation running back up and sliding back down.

The Lord said, “Tell My people I’m restoring their youth unto them, the youth of their spirit, the youth of their spirit, the virginity of their spirit, the innocence of their spirit.” Come unto Me… I know there’s more visions in this house.

Colors in the Spirit

August 5, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Eva McGraw

It’s been about a year now that the Lord’s been showing me some colors. And the colors are purple, and they’re green. And the Lord showed me the green tonight, in more of a brighter… It was the green, but it was more of a bright color.

Flashes of the Pillar of Fire

August 5, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

Perhaps you’re in this building tonight and you’re so tired in body that you can hardly put your mind on the Lord. And perhaps you’re feeling like, “Well, we’re moving mighty slow tonight.” But I just felt led to share with you, while we were worshiping the Lord, I began to see those flashes of light all over this building. I kept looking. I saw it at least ten or twelve different times, flashing.

I looked around to see if there was cameras going off in the building. And then all of a sudden, I could sense in my spirit that it was those great flashes of the Pillar of Fire taking place. And I thought, “Lord, if I tell that…” The people seem a little weary, and perhaps maybe not finding that Anointing to stand in. But I just felt like I needed to tell you to reverence God.

I believe He’s in this building tonight. And I believe He’d meet you right where you’re standing. If you’re tired in body, there is a refreshing to the people of the Lord. If you’re tired in spirit, He has a rest for you. If you’ll just enter in, in the next few moments, as they continue to sing whatever God gives them, if you’ll just continue to worship the Lord and reverence God… Because we’re preparing an atmosphere now for what God is going to do a little bit later. But I see heaven flashing down in this service tonight. So there’s no telling what God is going to do.

U.S. Troops Going to the Persian Gulf

August 5, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

And I also perhaps shouldn’t share it at this time, but as I was praying this afternoon in my den at home, I saw a vision. And in that vision I saw U. S. troops gathering their gear and going to the Persian Gulf. I saw it in the Spirit. I knew where they were going. And the only way I can tell you that I knew where they were going is by the way they were moving, the seriousness of their movement.

And I believe that God has shown me today that the U.S. will soon deploy a multitude of troops, to depart, to the middle east, and all the way into the Persian Gulf. I’m not speaking about the Palestinian and Israeli conflict. I believe it’s even deeper than that. Perhaps when we pray in this service and when we go home we should pray that God’s will is speedily done, and that there is a minimum loss of lives.

I tell you, people, the world scene is heating up. Something glorious is about to take place. And God is counting on you and I to stay on the cutting edge of what’s about to happen, so that we can pray it through. So let’s be reverent to God who is in this house tonight.

Balancing of the Scales

August 10, 2001 (Friday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

This afternoon when I was praying in my den, the Lord… I was just sitting in the chair. Doesn’t do me any good to try to take a nap because there is never a time during the day when the phone doesn’t ring. And there is no way to post a note on the phone, “Don’t call between such-and-such.” And so I don’t even hardly try.

But I was sitting in the chair and I was getting rather sleepy. And I said, “Lord, if I yield to this, I’ll be snoring. But I think I’ll take this opportunity to pray again. If You don’t mind, I’m going to pray right here in my chair.”

And I began to pray. The Lord opened my spiritual eyes and He allowed me to see a pair of balances, or what you might refer to as a set of scales. I saw the old-fashioned kind, the kind that has the pole in the middle, the bar that goes across, and the little chains coming down. Three chains on either side, holding a little round tray.

Perhaps you have seen these kinds of scales before. They symbolize justice. They’re often used in the judicial system as a symbol of justice. I’d rather not say what I saw on the scales. But I trust that you’ll get the meaning anyway.

I saw something being placed on one side of the scale, and something being placed on the other side of the scale. And I saw it tilting heavy to the right. Then I saw something being added to the left. Something was already there. Something else was added to the left, and it tipped the scales to the left.

There was something in my spirit, as the vision unfolded, that caused me to be grieved. I knew that it was not the will of God that the balances be tilted to the right, and it was not the will of God that it be balanced to the left. But there seemed to be more grief in my spirit when this was added to the left side of the scale. (Stay with me for a moment.)

And something began to stir in my spirit, sitting in that chair. And there came a language from my lips. But the only way that I would know how to describe it to you is that it came from far, far, far away. I could feel it coming from a great distance, perhaps thousands of miles away. That may sound very odd, but I don’t know any other way to describe it.

Finally, it went into my stomach, my lower abdomen. I could hear that language beginning to move through my stomach and it began to move up through my chest, and into my throat. And as that language began to go into my throat, I could feel that hand of the enemy as he took my throat and tried to cut my breath off.

And as my breath was being cut off… This hand was on my throat. As my breath was being cut off, I realized that whatever that language was, Satan would do anything that he could to keep it from flowing out of my mouth.

So I began, in my mind, not with my lips, but in my mind I began to rebuke the devil. And I said, “Satan, you are already defeated. You have no power against whatever this is that God wants to bring forth.” And I could feel the grip, (are you with me?) I could feel the grip of the enemy loosening from around my throat. And out of my mouth came a language.

I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost almost, next month will be twenty-six years ago. And I’ve been speaking in tongues daily for twenty-six years. But there has never been a language like that one come out of my mouth. I don’t know how to describe it to you. But I can tell you, it was from another dimension. It was from another realm.

I knew it wasn’t Chinese. I knew it wasn’t Arabic. I knew it wasn’t a language known to man. But the Bible said, “There are tongues of men that come out spiritually, and there are tongues of angels that come out.”

And all I could think about was, “Whatever this language is, it’s a language that God uses to communicate in such a way that the devil is not able to hear what’s being said.” This is something the devil doesn’t know how to handle.


That language that came out of me caused a balance. That scale that has now been tipped to the left, that language caused something, that last piece that was added to the left side, that language that came out of me… (It’s very, very prophetic and very symbolic, and don’t be confused if you don’t understand what each thing represents.)

But when that language came billowing out of me in vision. I mean, the language literally came out of me, sitting in the chair. But I was watching the vision like a screen before me. And it caused that added piece to be just knocked out of the scale. And when that happened, I watched both sides.

Can you see it? I watched both sides began to teeter. Is that what happens? Sometimes you wonder, how is it going to end up? What’s going to be the heaviest? You can’t always see with your eyes what’s going to cause the scale to tip to which side. Hear me?

It was just doing this. King of jerking. Not flowing, but kind of jerking back and forth. But all of a sudden, as that language continued to usher forth from my inner being, both sides of the scale came to the middle. And they were in perfect balance.

Take Heed

August 11, 2001 (Saturday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Elfrieda Wittmeier

All day today I keep hearing that the word we heard yesterday was actually a key to the thing that God is about to do and that He had spoken over and over again. And it is time for us to take heed. In this last year one of the things we’ve heard more than any other prophetic word was the Lord saying, “It is time.”

And I keep hearing the prophecies Brother Branham had said pertaining to what God is about to do. And I could just encourage every one of you to take heed and listen to that tape to see what God wanted to tell us yesterday.

Heavenly Host Cheering

August 11, 2001 (Saturday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Judith Schapals

The sounds of heaven are just beautiful. And in my spirit, I was hearing a great heavenly host cheering. And I saw people running, as though they were running a race. And I realized that that heavenly host was cheering and shouting for those people to run, run on.

Vision for the Body

August 12, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

The Lord wants to release… I don’t know if this the right word or not. Brother Vaughn, you might have to correct me or somebody. But I’m looking for a word and I think the word is something like comradery. Is that a feeling of oneness or…?

Brother Vaughn:

One team; one unit.

Brother Shelley:

I just feel like God wants to release that spirit. A spirit of unity and a spirit of comradery in this place.

In fact, the Lord just spoke to my spirit and He said He desires to impregnate you, this morning with a vision. The vision of what He has called us to do. The Lord said in my spirit that many of you have said, “Brother Shelley’s vision. Brother Shelley’s ministry.”

But the Lord said, this morning, He wants you to receive it as a part of yourself, because He hasn’t given the vision for one. He’s given the vision for the body. The ministry is not one. It doesn’t belong to me. It belongs to us. Let God release a fellowship. I’m talking about a fellowship in the spirit.

Wisdom of Solomon

August 12, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Brother Greeley

Father, as we anoint our Pastor, we declare supernatural wisdom. (Tongues) Father, we declare a healing in his body. God, we speak a healing in the Name of Jesus Christ. God, may his feet and ankle bones be strengthened right now, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Lord, you see the pressure. I declare one more time the wisdom of Solomon shall rest upon your shoulders. From the East, from the West, from the North, from the South they shall come and enquire. The wisdom of Solomon shall rest upon you. Decisions, they’re nothing.

When you worry till you can worry no more, My answer shall come for you, saith God. Lord, I thank You for pouring Your strength into our Pastor. I thank You, Lord, that these two weeks will not have an effect on him as they normally do. But I thank You, God, that You’re restoring strength now. In the Name of Jesus Christ.

Tumor to Disappear

August 12, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

I don’t know who’s coming for this kind of need, but in the Spirit, I just saw a tumor disappear in such a way that when you go home tonight, it’ll be gone and you’ll know that God has performed a miracle. Oh, (Tongues) Sing again we’re building faith.

Good Cells Eating Up the Cancer Cells

August 28, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Anne Tremain

When we were praying, I saw… You all remember that old Pacman game where it has the mouth? And it was like a cell. And I saw the good cells eating up the cancer cells. And I believe it.

Wind of God Blowing

September 2, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Stephen Currie

There’s a wind. There’s a wind blowing in this place. Feel the wind of God breathing in this place. Can these dry bones live? God said to speak to the dry bones and tell them to live, and He will breathe the breath of life into him. He’s breathing again this morning. He’s breathing. (Tongues.)

Live, live. Behold, I say, live, saith the Lord, as I breathe My breath in you. May you live and rise. (Tongues.) Live, live. (Tongues.) Thank You, Jesus. (Tongues.)

Take Joy My King

September 2, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Lisa Skipworth

The song says, “Take joy my King.” And when we sung that, I felt, I felt the Lord speaking to me and saying, “I’m your King, and you’re speaking to Me as My Bride.” And He takes joy in it. And He takes joy in the fact that we proclaim our love before Him. And I felt that so strong.

Calling a Bride out of Islam

September 16, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

Do you remember that we also had a Word some months ago concerning God calling people out of Islam? Do you remember how God spoke and said there would be a time that He would begin dealing with those people, and the Moslem people would fall on their knees before the Lord?

The Lord confirmed to me again last night that there’s getting ready to be a great exodus out of the Moslem faith. He said. In fact, the Lord spoke so plainly to my heart and said, “I have a Bride. I have a Bride that’s hidden there in that Moslem world.” Oh, praise God.

You can see the men with their heads wrapped and the women that are veiled. Many of them are just as hateful and bitter as those terrorists. But many of those people are innocent in the fact that they are born into this religion. And it’s all they have ever heard.

New & Fresh Revelation of the Cross

September 16, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

And the Lord said. (And I’m going to hush in a moment.) I want you to hear this. The Lord said, “I’m getting ready to release a new and fresh revelation of the cross and the power of redemption in this nation.” I’m getting ready to release a new and fresh revelation of the cross. Hallelujah. And the power of redemption, calling many sinners and backsliders to repentance.

The Rush is Going to Grow Greater Than Ever

September 16, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shane Vaughn

Brother Shelley, I don’t know you very good. I, unfortunately, since I’ve been here, we speak less than we did when I visited. Hallelujah. But a moment ago when I was standing by the piano, I did see a little vision.

Brother Shelley, I saw you and I saw about twelve hands that were pulling your heart out of you. And you were weeping uncontrollably like a mother would that had lost a child.

And the Lord said, “That was a great death in you.” But the Lord said to tell you. Because you’ve chosen… It took a while, but because you’ve chosen to let it go, God said the rush is going to grow greater than it’s ever grown.” Hallelujah. It couldn’t have grown without some of these dead things in your ministry, in your life.

The Covering of the Ministry

September 16, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shane Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shane Vaughn

Let’s see who is here. Pastor, if you don’t mind. I want to show you how to make a garment. The reason I’m doing this to him, because he and I have both been full time ministry. And I feel like this is appropriate. The way you make a garment for your brother, your sister.


“Brother Shelley, I love you. You mean so much to me. I’m praying for you. I believe in you. I believe in you. I believe in the ministry God’s given you. Sure, I’ve heard things. You’ve heard things. I, I affirm you, I believe in you, and you can depend on me to pray.

Everything that’s come against you, I’m an enemy of it. Everything that’s come against you, I’m against it. I’m believing for greater miracles in your ministry. Greater travels, greater revelation. Because if I can cover you, you can be anointed to feed my soul. I cover my Pastor tonight. And I know he covers me in the same way.

If he wasn’t covering me… I don’t know. I’m sure he talks privately about me to some people. And I’m sure he says good things. If he didn’t, I wouldn’t be able to minister effectively to you. We need the covering of the ministry.

I’m going to ask you tonight to do something a bit unorthodox. I want you to find someone that you’re not good friends with. I don’t mean they’re your enemy, you’re not close to them. You don’t talk to them a lot. You don’t see them on an everyday basis. You’re really not that close.

I Cover Thee

September 16, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Spiritual Song, Sung by Brother Shane Vaughn

With My blessing I cover thee

With My love I clothe thee.

With My praises and I cover thee,

I cover thee.

The Lord spoke to me to call this congregation to go back to the first part of the message tonight. And make a garment for your brothers and sisters tonight. I want to show you how you make a garment. Brother…

Shortness of Time

September 16, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Message in Tongues & Interpretation given through Sister Helen Burgess

Yea, the for the Lord would say unto thee this night. Yea, I sought her, yea she was Mine. Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, I chose her from the beginning. Yea, I chose her as My nation, saith the Lord. Yea, she rebelled against Me. Yea, the Lord would say, she sought other gods.

And yea, there came a time, saith the Lord, that I even had to put her away. Yea, so that she could go into bondage, into captivity, and suffer many, many things. But yea, the Lord would say unto thee. I could not forget her, for she was Mine. And I sought out Israel, saith the Lord, even as a husband would seek out his straying wife. Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, I sought her out and I brought her forth, saith God. And I will not forsake her again.

But yea, I the Lord thy God, will stand with her until she is established in peace. Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, I chose this nation, saith the Lord, to fill it with My Glory. Yea, so that people could worship Me in Spirit and in Truth, without fear of man or government. And yea, America has forsaken Me, saith the Lord. And she has sought other gods. And yea, she has brought in paganism and many other things. But I, the Lord thy God, would say unto thee, I shall not forsake her in her time of trouble, saith the Lord.

For the Lord would say unto thee, she has taken the Gospel to the islands of the sea, and the nations of the world. And I will stand by her, saith God. Did I not send a Message to America, saith the Lord? Did I not establish My last day move in this nation? Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, I will draw her, My elect in this nation, I will draw her, saith the Lord, until she is once again at My bosom. Many will never return to Me, saith the Lord.

But I shall use these days to call My elect to My side, saith the Lord. Oh, My people, hear the Word of the Lord. For I shall stir afresh and I shall stir anew. And yea, I shall call many to Truth that have never known the Truth. For I shall stir up their memory and their remembrance. Yea, I shall cause them to know that I have dealt harshly with this people, but yea, I shall remember My elect.

Do not fear, saith the Lord, but put you trust in Me. For as I will establish Israel in peace, I will also remember America, saith the Lord. Hallelujah. With cords of mercy. With cords of mercy. (Tongues) Jesus, we thank You. We thank You.

I keep getting in my spirit that God wants to remind us of the shortness of time. That time is short, very, very short. God wants to remind us of the shortness of time. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.

Arafat Funneling Money to Bin Laden

September 16, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

While we were worshiping the Lord, I just had a very unusual vision. I saw two men. As far as I know, they may have never… I don’t know of there being a report that they ever met one another. But I believe there’s a great meaning in this.

I saw Yasser Arafat. And anyone who has seen him knows that there’s no mistaking him. I saw Yasser Arafat with a bag that looked like it would be a bag of gold. And he was placing it in the hands of a robed man. And all I could see first was his arm, his hand, and his sleeve hanging.

And I know that it was the sleeve of a robe. As he turned, I saw his beard, and I recognized him to be Bin Laden. I believe there’s a real meaning there. And then the vision changed and I saw Bin Laden standing with his hands tied. And I knew that they were coming for him.

I want us to pray tonight that God will make a way that he could be turned over speedily to authorities, and that it would not mean the loss of lives, many, many lives. I believe, I’m afraid to add interpretation. I don’t want to offend anybody’s thinking politically.

But I believe that the Lord is saying that somehow Arafat has funneled money to Bin Laden. And I believe that Bin Laden is just the mastermind. But I believe that much of the finances… (although he’s a wealthy man himself) I believe some of the financing has come through Arafat. Which certainly explains the connection with Israel.

Would you pray right now? I tell you, God can do it. He can do it in two, three days. He can do it in twenty-four hours.

Lord, in the Name of Jesus. Father, You’ve settled it in my mind. I don’t come before You with a doubt. I know You’ve settled it in my mind. Lord, I ask You right now. They know where, there’s no doubt in my mind that the leadership of Afghanistan know where he is.

I pray, oh God, that he would be surrendered to authorities. I pray, Lord, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Even as he would try to run, even though he would try to get away, I pray, God, that he would be apprehended and that he would be turned over to the authorities.

I pray in the Name of Jesus that if there’s any way that these things can be settled, it would bring great healing and peace to America if he could be found. And then America will have to deal with the fact that terrorism, it’s not one man but it’s a movement and a spirit.

And I don’t know how it will be dealt with violently. But Lord, I ask You right now not to let that man escape. I pray, oh God, that everyone connected with this will be sought out in the Name of Jesus. I pray, Lord, that no matter what nation they’re in, even in America, even in Canada, I pray, God, that You’ll bring them to the light.

May their neighbors tell on them. May their neighbors tell on them. Father, I pray in the Name of Jesus, that every one of them that would be behind in any way would be confiscated quickly in the Name of Jesus. In the Name of Jesus. In the Name of Jesus. Lord, I pray against the league between Arafat and the terrorist. He hides, he hides. But Lord, You know him and You know what he’s up to. And You know what his agenda is.

We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We pray, oh God, that Your Kingdom will be established in that place. We pray, oh God, that You’ll bring justice quickly, that Your right arm will come, oh God, and rain vengeance upon that nation. Would You establish Your will in Jerusalem, we pray? (Tongues) In the Name of Jesus.

President Bush Being Filled with the Holy Ghost

September 16, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I also saw, Brother Greeley, the hands of an old man. Wrinkled, gnarled looking hands, laying hands on the cheeks of our President. Some old man laying his hands right there on the cheeks of our President.

I saw President Bush weeping till he interceded in a heavenly language. I believe that God will fill him with the Holy Ghost. Yes, Lord. Yes, Lord. I believe it, Lord. Oh, we send the Word. May it quickly come to pass. (Tongues) Hallelujah. Fill him, Lord. Fill him, Jesus.

Devils Hiding in Egypt

September 16, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

Thank You, Jesus. I don’t know what the interpretation is to that. But I did see the pyramids, as Sister Burgess was speaking in tongues. I saw the pyramids. It was either… I believe there are some of those devils hiding in Egypt.

Judas Spirit in the Camp

October 2, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Ruth McCarthy, Read by Brother Shelley

Brother Shelley Reading:

There is a Judas spirit in the camp. Beware, My little ones. Satan is roaring as a lion, seeking who he can take down with him. Dig in and fight, for I am going to perform a valiant work. Through it. You won’t understand My divine plan. Perhaps you will. (I’m adding that, because I can’t quite take that out.) So I have come to warn you not to be taken in with negative words. Stand with your shepherd. For this hurdle I’m about to put before you, I will set those on eagles’ wings who will press in.

Those of you who are pew-warmers will drown in the wave of attack, unless you press in now. Desperation must come now. Fall to your knees and cry out for the strength that I long to give you. A plan is being made to tear down, to tear down My work. But I have foreseen this and will use it to My good. Many outsiders will sit back and ponder and question. But I say unto you, “My Word will come to fruition.” I am preparing, molding, so I can entrust this work to you. Many of you are not ready as yet. I will get you to a place of submission.

You will no longer play games and float down the river. You must fight. Things must be set in order. Sin will be called out. All stones will be overturned. No sin will be hidden. I will burn out everything that will get in the way of this work. Every hindering spirit and person. The things that you have been doing in secret is a stench in My nostrils, vomit. I see all. I hear all. Nothing is hidden from Me. I am coming in such a powerful way in this church, that sin will not be comfortable.

You will not be able to sit there. Conviction will fall. You’ll have to run out or run to the altar for forgiveness. My power will be so great. I’m sending Fire to clear out once again, to mold you together in love. Such a closeness will prevail, a oneness, a purity. I will bring you through, saith the Lord. A battle is coming, and My army is not ready. Some are fallen by the wayside. Some slumber. Others are battle worn and fallen.

I hear a cry, a cry to awake, My little ones. Open your eyes. Come, partake of what I have for You. Deliverance, spiritual healing. Many of you have held on to bitterness. The pain you feel as if your heart has been ripped and has been left open and bleeding. The feeling as if salt had been rubbed in over and over again.

Through this you have tried to put up barriers, walls. I see you cradling, nurturing your wounds. Protecting, feeding on negative memories over and over. But I want to bring down walls for your healing to begin. I will burn out the dross to bring forth the gold. I have sweet nectar for you to feed on. Hallelujah.

These walls are stopping you from entering greener pastures. As Peter walking on the water, are you willing to take that step? Keep your eyes on Me. Take your eyes off of your hurt. Step towards Me, My little ones, and watch a miracle take place in this place. I see these hurts have caused a spiritual death in some of you. A part of you has rotted and died. I speak Life. I speak Life to the innermost being. Spring up. Spring up, oh well. What the locusts and cankerworm has eaten, I am about to restore, saith the Lord.

I see a move. Cracks are appearing in the walls of man. As you cry out in desperation, the walls will fall with it. Depression will cease. Negativity, hate, jealousy, rebellion, captivity, torment, lies of Satan will cease. Then I’ll fill you with joy, longsuffering, peace, faith, love, truthfulness and all things that are needed to fight. You must make the step, as I give this call. Man has been given freedom of choice, and you will bear the consequences of your choice and the path you take. (Listen) You can take the easy way in Me, or the hard way of yourself.

The hard way is hurtful, demolishing, destroying of self on the way. The easy way is hard to the flesh, but the burden is light. Oh hallelujah. And your life victorious, whichever way you choose, I will get you to where I need you, to the positions I have for you. Choose you this day whom you’ll serve, saith the Lord. Hallelujah.

Brother Shelley:

I think we ought to praise the Lord tonight. Father, we thank You, Jesus. Hallelujah… Thank You, Jesus. Thank You, Jesus. Just lift your hand and let’s give the Lord a praise just now. Hallelujah.

Testing the Righteous

October 7, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

You see, the Lord spoke to me while I was away, and He said this into my spirit. He said, “Now I’m trying the righteous. I’m testing the righteous. I’m testing and trying those that have said, ‘God, I’m going to follow You.'” But He said, “When I make my turn, I’ll no longer be trying the righteous, but I’m going to try those that have played with Me and toyed with Me.”

And He said, “Two things you’re going to notice about My dealing with them. Number one, you’re going to notice the severity of it. And number two, you’re going to notice a lack of mercy.”

And I said, “Lord, how is it that a God of mercy could show a lack of mercy?” And the Lord said to my spirit… Are you listening? The Lord said to my spirit, “There is a time that judgment must begin in My house.”

Wake, My Love

October 7, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Flo Hendrix

As we was worshiping the Lord, over and over and over in my spirit the Lord was speaking. And He was saying, “Wake, My love. Wake, My love, and see Me perform all the promises that I’ve promised you. But wake, My Lord. Wake, My love.”

Wheels of Deliverance

October 7, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I can see the wheels turning. I can see the wheels of deliverance turn. I see them as they’re turning slowly, ever so laboriously, very difficult for them to turn, great resistance as they turn. But I know that as we yield right now… I can see in the Spirit that the wheels of deliverance will break forth, even as something that is oiled, as something that is greased will begin to move smoother and freer and swifter.

Burden for Ireland

October 9, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word by Brother Shelley

I wasn’t even going to mention this because I didn’t do it on Sunday and then something happened. So I didn’t want to be a day-old prophet. But on the way to church Sunday morning, as we turned up off of the highway on to the road there, I saw an outline of the map of Ireland. And I knew that it was Ireland. And I had a burden to pray.

And I wanted to speak to my wife about it, but I didn’t take the liberty to do that. I heard yesterday that they had arrested some men in Ireland, who they thought might possibly be connected.

But as I was standing here, the Spirit of the Lord just let me know that wasn’t all. That wasn’t it. That wasn’t the end of it, and that we should pray. As we leave here tonight, we should pray for Ireland and whatever Ireland’s part is, or whatever is about to happen, that God will undertake.

You know, I saw the pyramids some weeks ago. And the Lord spoke and said something like, “Perhaps some of those devils are hiding in Egypt,” because I saw the pyramids. And then that broadcast came where the man who (did you say he was responsible for assassination of Anwar Sadat?)

And as soon as the assassination was over of Anwar Sadat, this Egyptian man joined himself to Bin Laden. And he has served under him. And so there is a whole network of men in Egypt that are also a part of this that’s going on. And God revealed that to us, and we didn’t even know what it was about.

Preparing the People to Hear a Message

October 9, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Carmen Lanier

On Sunday morning, when you were delivering that message, I felt like what I saw in the Spirit was a body of people standing, with the Lord girding their loins and preparing them to speak them a message. And I believe that this is the beginning of that message that God is preparing the people to hear.

Go in the Tent to Get Your Orders

October 9, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jan Salvador

When I spoke on Sunday about the army camps that I saw on Mount Zion, it was also… God was dealing with me how George Washington, when he went into his tent and how the Lord visited him, it was like, “If we’ll spend our time in the tent, God will be able to give us the orders.” But if we won’t take that time to spend with Him, we won’t be able to hear.”

And also tonight, it’s like when God puts you through a trial, it’s not to have self-pity on yourself. But it’s to get your attention, so that you will pray to Him and that you will stop, and that you will listen instead of grumbling.

Camel Train

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I see now, as I’m standing here this morning, I see this. References have been made about it. There is a sister that has mentioned it before. They’ve requested for me to sing the song. God even gave a Word not too long ago, and spoke about the camel train.

But as I’m standing here this morning, I see that camel train. And it’s loaded down. I’m telling you, the bags are packed. And I know what’s in those packs. Brother Branham already told us what it was. It was those love gifts, (hallelujah) that Abraham is sending to Rebecca. Oh hallelujah. Things that Rebecca has never enjoyed before. Clothes to wear that Rebecca has never worn before. Perfume that she has never smelled before.

Brother Branham said, “Those are the love gifts that the Father desires to bestow upon His Bride.” When we think about love gifts, we think about nine spiritual gifts. And that’s a part of that. But I want you to know, there are some other giftings in there. And one of those giftings is intercession. It may not be listed in the nine. But I’m telling you. If God ever uses you in the nine, you’ll also feel the pull to intercede and to be.


I keep seeing that camel train. Oh hallelujah. Maybe you can’t get a hold of it this morning with eyes of faith, but every time my mind wanders from it, I can see it again. It’s loaded down. And I believe it’s headed our way.

Positioned by the Gate of the Kingdom of God

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

Three times before Tuesday night, twice since then, I have stood at a gate, a beautiful gate. A gate that was not wide open, but a gate that was closed. The last time I saw the gate was just yesterday. And the gate that had been completely closed four times was now partially, part of the way opened, as though it had just sort of swung on its own. It was just opened a little bit, not a whole lot.

I’ve been able to see this beautiful gate that was standing before me. And in the vision, I’ve been able to look past the gate, beyond the gate, and know that I was looking into the very spiritual Kingdom of God.

But the thing that baffled me the most in this vision was… Although there was a slight desire, there was a desire, a hunger, a longing for that which was beyond the gate, for that peace that I could see in the Spirit on the other side of the gate.

The thing that has stayed in my mind until I can’t erase it, I can’t seem to get away from it at all, was the desire to stand by the gate. You know, when you see a door that’s partially open, you feel the desire to go through and see what’s there. When you look and you know that you’re seeing into the Kingdom of God, any believer in his right mind would want to push through the gate, and go and inhabit that.

I knew in my heart that everything beyond that gate was mine. I knew that it was mine. And I had a strange feeling that I had seen all of that before. And I knew that it belonged to me. It was my inheritance. It was my possession.

But this great overwhelming feeling was, “I have positioned you here. There is a burden for you to be here.” That pull, and that pressure that I was to stand there at that gate, and not go in to enjoy that which was on the other side. But for such a time as this, it was time to stand by the gate.

Make Right Every Ought

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Exhortation given by Sister Beverly Skipworth

The Lord doesn’t want you to take your [Unclear audio] in life. You know, someone spoke not long ago, I want to speak this seriously, because it may be [Unclear audio] If you knew that Christ was coming for you in one hour, what would you do? What do you need to make right? Do you have an ought somewhere?

The Bible says our life is even a vapor that appeareth for a little while, and is no more. It’s that serious of an hour when the Lord wants us to be serious. Real serious. If you have an ought, if you have anything that you need to make right. We can’t have a scratch. [Unclear audio]

A Quick Work

Prophecy given through Brother Jonathan Hollis

For out of Eternity the Lord would say unto thee, this night, doubt not that the things that I have spoken unto thee of are upon thee. Yea, this is the hour, saith the Lord. This is the hour yea, when I would begin to do that work, saith the Lord, that I’ve spoken unto the of. A quick work, saith the Lord. A quick work. A quick work. A quick work.

And yea, the miracles shall be here when you need them, saith the Lord. That which you need shall be here when you need it, saith God. For the hour of your shining is upon thee. The hour of your visibility is upon. Yea, I’m drawing thee up, saith the Lord, into the Light. Yea, into the countenance, saith the Lord, when you would shine to the Earth. Oh, I draw thee up, saith the Lord, into greater realms.

Yea, when men shall see thee, saith the Lord. And it shall draw them unto thee, saith God. It shall draw in the final seed. Yea this hour the hour saith the Lord. Doubt not in your heart, for I am upon thee. Doubt not in thy heart, for this is the hour, saith the Lord. And I shall do that, saith God, speedily.

Yea, the word that I have spoken unto thee of, saith God. It shall come forth speedily. Even like bullets, saith the Lord, it shall go forth. Yea, like a machine gun, it shall go forth. And ye shall see that which I speak, even in this hour, and the hours to come, it shall go forth speedily and accomplish that which I send it forth to do, saith the Lord. Hallelujah. Hallelujah…

Oh for this is the hour standing firm. It is not the hour of turning aside, but, yea, the hour of looking straight forward, saith the Lord. It is the hour of looking unto Me. Yea, for you shall know if you look to Me what I am thinking and what I speak. Yea, even in the hour that I speak it, saith the Lord. Look unto Me. Look unto Me and you shall know My will for the hour.

Every Chain Shall Crumble by the Sword of the Lord

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Jonathan Hollis

Do not fear, said the Lord, for I have My sword to cut you free. Yea, every chain shall crumble. Every chain shall break and fall beneath thee, saith the Lord. If you will come. If you will come. Yea, My sword is mighty. And yea, I know how to wield that sword and deliver thee. Come, come, come. Come unto Me. Come unto Me. Hallelujah… (Tongues) Come unto Me. I’ll cut you free. Come unto Me, says the Lord. (Tongues)

Who Will Lift Your Voice?

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Jonathan Hollis

If you don’t lift your voice, who will? If you don’t lift your voice, who will? Who will? I’ve tried to use your leader. I’ve tried to use your leader, and you would not heed. I’ve tried. I’ve tried. I’ve tried and who will lift your voice? Who will lift your voice? Who? Who? Who will?

I Have Paid the Price

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophecy given by Sister Betty Omilian

Who, oh who is bound, saith the Lord? For I have paid the price for you. There is no binding that can hold you. I have paid the price, saith the Lord. Just look up onto Me. I am close by thee, saith the Lord.

This Is the Hour

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Jonathan Hollis

I hear the Lord saying, I will not always strive with you. I will not always strive with you. This is the hour. This is the hour. This is the hour that I deal with you, this night, in this way.

Handing the Bride the Sword

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

I felt the Lord saying to me when Sister Betty was giving the Word about the high priest holding the sword by the blade. And I felt the Lord saying to me, “The reason why He was holding it by the blade is, He’s handing it to you. The handle is…” Hallelujah.

That’s how He’s passing the sword to you, to us, to the Body. He’s holding the blade, not the handle. Because the handle’s just right for your hand. Hallelujah. And I don’t believe that was Sister Jan that said, “Charge”, either. Hallelujah. I believe it was something greater than that. Glory to God.

And if you’re here tonight and you need to run… it doesn’t matter. Perhaps you are serving, but there’s something that’s not right. And you feel that unction to run to the altar, just do it. Just do it. Somebody will join you. And perhaps there’ll be somebody run for themselves, but there’ll be other’s that will run for you, too.

You won’t run alone. If you run to the altar, somebody will run with you. You obey God. I’m sure that that was the Lord speaking, but it’s up to you what you do with it.

This Is the Time I Have Chosen

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

The Lord just spoke to my spirit and said, this is not the hour that you would have chosen. This is not the time that you would choose. But this is the time that I have chosen. No man cometh unto the Father, except My Spirit draw him. This is not the appointed time, or the time you that would have appointed or set aside, but the Lord said, tonight is the night that I desire to begin to set you free.

And that word is not just to the going to the backslider. It’s going to the body. I believe God’s calling backsliders, but the word is going to the body, as well. Perhaps, there are things that you would not have been ready to turn loose of, tonight, but God said, I’m not asking you when you’re ready. I’m ready for you. After all, who is God? Who is God? He’s the one who decides.

Hear the word of the Lord, tonight. This is not the time you would have chosen, but it’s the time I have chosen for you, saith the Lord. I can hear of old, how they cried, Wait for a more convenient time. This may not be the time of your convenience, but it’s the time that God desires to begin deliverance.

Clean Out Your Wells

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jan Salvador

This is a call to clean out your wells. Clean out your wells so that the word of God can come out, clean and pure. (Tongues) Clean out your wells. Clean out your wells. Clean out your wells. Clean out every thought. (Tongues) Oh, God don’t let it pass us. Don’t pass, Lord. Don’t pass. Don’t let this opportunity pass, oh God.

House of Prayer

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Judith Schapals

Each one of us has been called to a special calling. A calling to make a difference. And in the service on Tuesday, these words came to me and they’ve stayed with me all week. The words were, “House of prayer”. And in my mind, I saw this church being a house of prayer, as well as each one of us as individuals being that house of prayer.

And when that came to me, I remembered a service that I had my eyes closed and I heard intercessory prayer all around me. And I opened my eyes to see who was standing there, praying and there was nobody. And I started crying because I realized I could sense the power that there was in intercessory prayer and I just want to say that we’re rich because of what the Lord has done for us and we’ve been called to make a difference.

Deliverance for the Men

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Ruth McCarthy

I believe that the Lord is speaking to the men, tonight. He’s giving them a last chance to put their manliness aside, and let out that desperation, and to let out them cries. I believe deliverance is here for the men, tonight. And if you don’t do that, tonight, I believe that He’ll pull that manliness aside. He’ll pull that religious cloak aside. He will have you in your right place. The Lord’s calling to you, tonight. Jesus.

Sharp Bullet of the Lord Penetrating the Enemy

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Jonathan Hollis

Even now I’m seeing that bullet going forth. It’s the sharp bullet of the Lord. It’s penetrating the enemy. It’s penetrating the lines and the walls, and the defenses of the enemy. Hallelujah. Every wall of the enemy shall come down. Every defense of the enemy shall crumble. By the Word of the Lord. By the army of God, it shall come down. Every stronghold in every life, it shall down. It shall come down. It shall come down.

Looking & Seeing Your Heart

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Jonathan Hollis

Maybe you think our tarrying is in vain, but He’s walking the aisles tonight. And I see Him sifting people’s hearts out. I see Him looking and seeing your heart. He’s reading even the deepest places, the dark places that you think are hidden. He’s sees every one of them. Oh, my God. My God.

Time of Being Squeezed

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Jonathan Hollis

I don’t say this as a fear tactic, but Tuesday night, as we were around the altar praying and interceding, I saw person, a particular person, and I thought they were standing between two… I didn’t understand what it was, at first. It looked like two columns, but then later, as I saw it was two rollers and the rollers were coming together.

And then the Lord reminded me of a washing… Of one of the old washing machines, when they would pull the garment through and I realized they were being squeezed. If I were you, I wouldn’t wait on the Lord to squeeze you. I would come now, while the hour is here. While the hour is upon us. Hallelujah.

Brother Shelley:

That could be for many.

Mighty Deliverance for Those Who Are Bound

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Anita Currie

This morning, when I was praying down on my knees in the pew, I could see in my mind’s eye, (I’m not going to say it’s a vision), but in my mind’s eye, as I was praying, I could see like a person being led to the executioner’s block, with the hood upon their head and their hands were bound.

And as I was praying back here a while ago, thinking about that again, I started thinking about the Calvary of the Lord, how it comes charging in… at the end, at the last moment. At the last moment, we feel like we’re about to go under, that sword, that our head is about to roll, and the horses comes charging in in deliverance. I feel like that’s what’s happening tonight. There’s a mighty deliverance in this place tonight for those that are bound.

High Priest Bringing the Word of God

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Betty Pilkenton

This morning, I seen the High Priest again. But He had the sword, that sword and He was holding it by the blade. And I just believe that it’s to bring the word of God.

Door Being Unlocked

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Daniel Skipworth

It’s not going to be easy to say what I’ve got to say. But you see I don’t have a choice. Because, less than two weeks ago, when I came close to death, I told God, I said, “If You let me live, if You ever speak to me again, I’ll do what You tell me.” I don’t have a choice anymore. The only way I can speak this, is I know it’s for me, too. It’s not easy walking this walk.

I saw myself and others. I was in a cage. It wasn’t a small cage, it was a big cage and the door was locked. And so many times, I found myself, I wanted to be out of this cage. I long to be out of this cage, but the door was locked. And tonight, I saw a door being opened. I saw the lock being unlocked. But I found myself hesitant to step out because I’ve been in this thing so long. I couldn’t get out. Mentally, I couldn’t see myself stepping out. I was too afraid for what was outside.

I had found a sense of protection in that cage. God has opened the door, but I found myself knowing that it wasn’t going to be opened forever. And while the door is opened, we have to get out. God, You’re so good. You’re so good. You are so good to us, Lord.

Get Out of the Cage to Get to the Gate

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Esther Morales

When Daniel came up here and was praying, and I was praying with him. When he was talking about the cage and the door was opened, I could see a long narrow road and it way up like a mountain.

And it went way up until you could barely see, up into the clouds, but at the top of that road was a gate. And I believe that the door is open and that road leads to the gate that Brother Shelley has been preaching about. And to get to the gate, we’ve got to get out of the cage.

Charge

October 14, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Sister Jan Salvador

And this morning when Brother Shelley was bringing the Word to us, it’s only twice that I’ve ever seen the Spirit of the Lord like a purple sword, but right when he was speaking about that we would speak the creative miracles, we would speak the creative word, that’s when I saw the sword go forth. And tonight, all I could keep hearing was, “Charge, charge. Quit standing back and being passive. Charge. Charge.”

The Channel Is Opening

October 28, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother John Heisey

I told Brother Shelley as we were singing this song, it was my mother’s favorite song. And I just felt like she was standing holding my hand back there while ago. And it’s many years since she passed on. But I know she loved that song.

But before when Brother Greeley had said that, He said… I feel the Lord told me, said, “I hear your praise. I hear your worship tonight. And I hear you saying you love Me. And tonight, I’m opening a channel that will give you what you want. So don’t back off. Just keep praising and worshiping. Because that channel is open for what you need tonight. The Lord is saying.”

These Are They that Escort Heaven

October 30, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shane Vaughn

This is the word of the Lord concerning this people. I’m not having a vision, but I’m hearing strong from the Lord. The Lord is saying, “These are they that escort heaven.” As I was standing there, the Lord said it over. And He said, “Look at the people. These are they that escort heaven. For heaven has no entrance in the earth but by you.”

And the Lord said, as you stand here tonight, you have heaven by the hand. And you’re its personal escort in the earth. The Lord said as you speak, you give a voice to heaven. And everything that you need is in heaven. It’s in that Glory. And the Lord said, “These are they that escort heaven.” Oh, every miracle, you’re escorting it with thy words and thy praise.

For heaven is an intruder in the earth, but by you. The Lord said you have authority to be in the earth. But heaven does not. But because you allow to be an escort… The Lord said, take heaven by the hand, and let thy voice and thy words be the entrance of heaven into your own lives. For these are they that escort heaven, saith the Lord.

Arab Nations Plotting

October 30, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

The Spirit of the Lord just revealed to me that we should pray against something that’s being plotted by the other Arab nations. Saddam Hussein. There’s retaliation. I’m telling you, they’re getting ready to join together in a way that they’ve never had to join together before.

We are praying right now. If you’ll just agree with me that God will protect. He’ll not allow it to come to fruition.

Lord, I thank You for the overthrow. Lord, I thank You for the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. Lord, I thank You for setting Iraq free. Lord, I thank You for setting Iran free. Lord, I thank You, oh God, for delivering and shaking Babylon. In the Name of Jesus Christ, let it shake. Let it shake.

Lord, don’t allow them to be able to do what they’re planning. But let this be the freedom. Lord, I see there’s a Bride crying out for deliverance in those places. (Tongues) I see that little lady that wears the veil. I see that little lady that walks among the other ladies. I see that lady that buys her bread where the other ladies buy their bread. I see her buying her vegetables where the other ladies buy their vegetables.

She’s hiding behind the veil. But I see, oh God, she’s not like the others. She represents a Bride. She represents a Christian people that are hiding behind the veil. She represents a people that are hiding behind those pretenses of the Moslem faith. They’ve already accepted You as Savior, but they hide for their lives. Remember them. Remember them.

Remember every woman who hides behind the veil. Every husband who hides in the market places. Though he sits with the others, though he hears their talk, his heart is for Christ. God, we remember them. We remember them. We remember them. (Tongues) Hallelujah.

Unifying of North & South Korea

October 30, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I see that economic situation of Asia is going to begin to be such, that North Korea is going to have to open up for tourism in a way that they never have in years passed. North Korea is one of the most closed nations of the world.

But I see that because of war, because of trouble, not only that which has happened now, but that which is about to happen, there’s going to be an opening of the border, the doors into North Korea, for the great evangelization of the Gospel is going to take place.

Those precious people in South Korea have stretched their hand toward the North, time and time again, believing God for the liberation of their loved ones under the spirit of Communism. And North Korea has done everything they could to keep the Truth out, and keep believers out.

But I see them, because of economics, they’re going to have to begin to open for tourism. And even though this is not a time where you’d want to be a tourist, God said, “I’m going to begin to open up North Korea.” I see the dividing line between South Korea and North Korea beginning… I see holes being punched in that dividing line. Hallelujah. Glory be to God. Glory be to God. Glory be to God.

And instead of North Korean fleeing to South Korea for help, I see South Koreans going into North Korea to take the Gospel, and to take the blessings of the Lord. Hallelujah. In times past, it’s only been those who could sneak out of North Korea into South Korea. But God’s about to do something in that part of the world. Hallelujah.

You know why that blesses me? Because the prophet of God spoke about that revival that has to go all the way around the world. And one of the places that He said, would be the final stops of that revival before it returned to Jerusalem, would be Korea. How many of you want to thank the Lord? Hallelujah. Thank You. Thank You, Holy Ghost. Thank You, Jesus. (Tongues)

We’re believing for deliverance, for the unity of Korea. Let the South and the North be one. It was by the Word of the Lord that You broke down the wall and caused Berlin, oh God, to be united. It was by the Word of the Lord that the Berlin wall fell. And You unified Germany. Let it be by the same Word of the Lord that will unify Korea. In the Name of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah.

Stepping Out of Our Rut

November 4, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Annabelle Omilian

The way that I feel led. The Lord told us He would set us free from all things that bound our feet and our hands and our eyes. But if we don’t take the step to obey Him when He speaks to us… I mean, He can take those things off, but if we don’t make a step ourselves, we’re still going to be in the same rut. Just as Brother Shelley preached about the twelve-foot shuffle.

You know, after that bear was out of the cage, he kept doing that twelve-food shuffle. And when the Lord releases of those bindings, we still are going to have to take a step because it’s a habit. Where humans are, get into a rut, get into a habit, we’re going to have to stretch ourselves to get out of that, to bind that fear and to obey the Lord.

Dealing with a Spirit of Witchcraft & Legalism

November 4, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I saw people with their feet in shackles. I saw people with their hands bound. I saw people with gags in their mouth that they couldn’t speak. I saw people chained to their seats, to their pews, so that they couldn’t move.

I saw people carrying heavy, heavy boxes, heavy weights on their shoulders, that they couldn’t be free. I saw some of you cloaked in heavy garments wrapped around, with heavy garments that you couldn’t break free.

I hesitate to say this. But I saw in the Spirit a spirit of witchcraft. I saw how the door was opened for it to come in. I saw how this spirit had desired to gag you, to bind your feet so that you couldn’t be free to dance. To bind your hands so that you couldn’t lift them in praise, and so that you couldn’t reach out to others. To silence your tongue so that you couldn’t speak your own deliverance.

There are some of you this morning, the Lord said, “You’re waiting on your Pastor.” Or you’re waiting on someone else to speak your deliverance. But the Lord is saying, “Have I not already spoken to you that the Word is nigh thee, even in Thy mouth.

No one wants to speak about a spirit of witchcraft, because when we do, there are so many interpretations. People who aren’t spiritually minded see the witch with the wart on her nose. But the Bible tells us what witchcraft is.

And I saw how the door was opened. And I saw how that spirit has moved about this place to bind us, to hinder us, to stop us. The Lord said to me in my spirit that if we would cause ourselves to recognize that which has taken hold of us… Perhaps you’re here, you’re not guilty, you’ve not been influenced. That spirit has not bound you, you are free. But if you’re here and you realize that the enemy has stolen away.

Don’t just look back over the last few months, look back over the last few years as well. See if the enemy hasn’t taken some of your victory, some of your joy, some of your freedom to worship. See how long it’s been since the worship, the praise has brought the Presence of the Lord into your life, where you could weep openly before God, feel that cleansing and washing out, that tears bring in the Spirit.

The Lord said, “I will not suffer you to be bound any longer. Neither will I cause you, allow you to grope about. I am seeing now even blindfolds. Not only gags over the mouth, but blindfolds over the eyes. That spirit has desired to blind us, to gag us, to cripple us. From doing that which the Lord would have us to do. The Lord said, “I’m exposing that spirit this morning.” Not so that you will turn on one another, so that you will stand firm against that spirit that has sought to silence you and blind you, and bind you and keep you.

The Lord is saying to me that especially in the last few months many of you have not even felt free to worship the Lord in your own church. You haven’t known why. You haven’t felt the liberty and the freedom that you have always loved about this place. The Lord is showing you this morning why.

Now remember, we can turn everything against the spirit and rebuke it and pray about it, but somehow, we also must search our hearts this morning to see why it is that we’ve allowed it to be so. Somehow each and every one of us need to search our own hearts and minds and spirits, and say, “Lord, how is it? How is it that such a thing could take a hold of me? Where have I missed, oh God. Where have I slacked up? Where have I failed You that such a spirit could bind me in such a way?”

I hesitate extremely to say this, because it’s such a dangerous thought. But the Lord is showing me at least one person in this place this morning that carries with them a spirit of legalism. You’re legal. It’s difficult for me to say that, because I’ve been accused of such for so long. Since I have fixed it up with God, it’ll be easy for me to say.

God wants you to turn loose of those things in your mind and your opinions that are legal. It’s not that God wants you to change the way you live. It’s not that God wants you to compromise your conviction. But He wants you to stop judging other people by your legal opinion. You feel it necessary to inform people when they come this way.

You feel necessary, necessary to inform them of what we believe or what we stand on. Almost as though you’re trying to do my job. The Lord is telling me to share, to say that that’s the way you have opened up your life to that spirit of witchcraft that binds you this morning. The Lord said we could be free today.

That feeling that’s caused you to feel strange among your own people. That spirit that has caused you to feel bound in your own place here. You’re out of place in your own church for the last few months. God wants you to be free from that today. I see something now in the Spirit. I see what looks like an explosion among us. It looks like meetings of the past. I see women losing hair pins. I see even young men free to leap for joy before the Lord. I see people running as though they were running from an explosion.

But it’s not something in the natural, but in the spiritual. God said, “I desire as dynamite to break this thing apart today. I’ve ordained this moment, this time to speak to your hearts about the seriousness of this hour. The Lord is saying also that some of you have opened your life up to this spirit that binds you, the spirit of witchcraft, because of your disrespect to the things of God.

You’ve dishonored the House of the Lord. You’ve disrespected God’s House. You’ve disrespected the holy things. You’ve talked when you should have been listening. You’ve joked when you should have been attentive to the Word of the Lord. You’ve played when you should have been serious.

The Lord said, some of you have been outside of the service when you should have been in the service to receive what God had. But by disrespect you’ve opened up your life to a spirit of witchcraft that binds you this morning, so that you can’t be free. Some of you have argued with the Holy Ghost.

You’ve tried to reason with God concerning the things that you love, the things that you want to hold on to. God said, “It’s not on the bargaining table. It’s not up for discussion. I’ve established My Word and My Truth among you. It’s forever settled.”

The Truth that you’ve allowed to bind you, the Truth that you’ve allowed to cause you to feel as though you were bound, the Lord would say unto thee this day, that same Truth shall set you free if you’ll yield yourself to Me.” (Tongues)

Would somebody lift their hand, lift their heart, lift their voice to the Lord right now? That God would deliver and break every fetter, that He would break every shackle, that He would break every chain.

Oh God. I hear screaming as people find freedom. (Tongues) I feel a special Word going out to the young. A special Word going out to the young. And it’s not a rebuke, it’s a wooing, a calling, a drawing. I feel a special drawing going out to the young, “Come to Me. Come to Me. Come to Me.

Give Me your heart. I’m not just interested in the way you live and the way you dress. I want your heart. I feel God wooing, wooing, wooing, wooing to the backslider. Calling to the lukewarm this morning. God said, “I want this House filled with the cries of My people. I want this House filled with the call and the cries of My people, as they call to Me for deliverance this morning.

Flexibility of the Heart

November 6, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Jonathan Hollis

While we’re still waiting, I’d like to share something that the Lord dealt with me last night as I was praying in the evening, or in the, at night before I went to sleep. The Lord brought this Scripture to my mind. It’s Psalm fifty-one verse fifteen, verse sixteen.

  1. For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

  2. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

The Lord was speaking to me, and He let me know that that not only means just broken and contrite as in the sense of humble, but He said in flexible, flexibility, a heart that He could deal with, a heart that He could mold and shape, a vessel that He could speak through and use. And I want to be that kind of vessel tonight.

God Standing in Tomorrow

November 6, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I saw God standing in tomorrow. I don’t know how to describe what I saw. But I saw God standing in tomorrow. Now that’s odd, isn’t it? I received it as a word of knowledge. But in my eyes, I could see God, and I knew He was standing in tomorrow. I know that’s odd. You’ll just have to forgive the oddness and the inability to express it. And I thought to myself, “God, what are you doing in tomorrow?” I didn’t preplan this. I got it tonight. “God, what are you doing standing in tomorrow? We need You today.”

Now some of you are going to get a revelation. You’re going to get a revelation that in those times when you can’t find God, now you’re going to know where He is. Have you ever been to where you wondered where He was? Well, let… I’m going to explain it. Don’t get upset. I found Him tonight. I found Him. I needed Him today. I found Him tonight. But, where was He? He was standing in tomorrow. It’s going to take a revelation. This is a Brother Kary moment. I’m getting him back for several things. He was standing in tomorrow. And the Lord… I said, “Lord, where are You?” I thought to myself, “We need You here today. And there You are standing in tomorrow.”

And the Lord revealed to me sitting there, another vision. And I saw clocks lined up across the wall. I’ve been in hotels… How many of you have ever been in hotels, behind the counter, especially if you travel abroad… The Hilton hotel in London, England, at the airport has them behind the counter. And I’ve seen them in other places, even places I’ve stayed in where I wondered how they could afford the clocks that they had across the wall. Brother Mike might remember the first time we were in Uganda and we stayed in that place, and they had a row of clocks across the back of the wall.

And underneath those clocks were the names of the major cities of the world. And it told what time it was in the major cities of the world. Now in this glimpse of vision I had tonight, I didn’t see the names of the cities, but I saw the clocks that they were all set at a different time. And the Lord revealed to me that it’s like that. That’s not what it is. But it’s like the difference in time zones. It is the same time here that it is in Opelika, but not according to the clock.

The clock says that when it is seven o’clock here, it is six o’clock here. But it is the same time. When it is seven here, it is six there. It’s the same time. If I picked up the phone from here, and I called over there at seven o’clock on the dot, and someone said, “Hello,” it would be at the same time. But it’s seven o’clock here and six o’clock there because of time zones. I hope I’m not confusing you. This was beautiful to me.

And then I remembered a song that I heard that I loved so dearly, that I want to sing. But I just haven’t had a chance to get it worked out with the musicians. Becky was going to do a little soundtrack, and hasn’t been able to do it because her equipment broke down. Because it needs a little… There’s one place where it needs a little something, a string or something to build the music up. But I mentioned it here one time. It talks about, “God saw me.” The words… I don’t know how to give you the words.

But I’ll tell you the meaning, the understanding of it. It starts out that God is standing out in the expanses of eternity. And all He sees is blackness. All there is is blackness, darkness. But it said, “In the distance He began to see rolling hills, babbling brooks. He began to see mountains high and lofty. It said He even heard a robin sing in all the darkness. He began to see those things standing there in eternity.

I didn’t see God standing way off in eternity, but I saw Him standing in tomorrow, which is a part of eternity. Believe that? You understand? Then it said this. And this… I tell you, I’ve heard it over and over again, and yet every time I hear it, I weep. You’d have to hear the music. You’d have to hear the words to get it. And then it said when God has seen all of this, He feels a strange compassion, as close to love as pain can be. Powerful words. Somewhere in that scene He saw me. He saw me.

And then it says, “He saw me bound in heavy chains. He saw me bowed down with a load of sin. And He longed to set me free.” And then it goes on a little longer. And the chorus ends like this, “He saw me in His likeness. He saw me just like Him, because He knew that in order for me to become like Him He must first become like me.” As we sung the other night, the Son of God became the Son of man, that we fallen sons of men might become the sons of God. Hallelujah.

And I began to see something just sitting there worshiping, or standing for a moment and then sitting. I began to see God out there in tomorrow. And I realized that in my natural ability, I can’t see five minutes into the future. But God has already seen this service and moved on. You see what I’m saying? It’s a little revelation, but it’s powerful in my spirit. He’s already moved on. He’s already seen what’s going to be accomplished. He’s seen you on the way home tonight. He’s seen you laying down for bed. He’s seen you raising up tomorrow. He knows what tomorrow faces for you. If He wants to, He can look out at eternity and see it all.

But the thing that blessed me so much… And this is Biblically sound. Because God is not bound by our time zone. He’s so big. He’s not bound by the dimensions… Hallelujah. I feel like shouting. He’s not bound by the dimensions of time. He’s not bound by the month of November. He’s not bound by… What’s today? The sixth. He’s not bound by the sixth of November. He’s not bound by Tuesday. He’s not bound by the year Two Thousand and One. Because He’s a God of eternity.

Hidden Under His Wings

November 11, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

For the Lord would unto thee this morning. I will restore, said God. Yea, I will restore the years that the palmerworm and the cankerworm and the caterpillar hath eaten away. Yea, I will restore deliverance, saith God. For yea, I’ve chosen this place to be a place of deliverance.

Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, for in times past no one was able to walk into this place without My Spirit of conviction gripping their heart. Yea, I had a Word for everyone who came. Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, I’m calling thee as a people back to My side. I’m calling thee unto My bosom this day, saith the Lord. Draw near to Me. Draw near to Me, saith the Lord, and let Me wrap My arm around you and hold you.

For yea, the Lord would say unto thee, in stormy times there is no place to hide like underneath My wings, saith the Lord. Yea the Lord would say unto thee, I will restore deliverance. Yea, I will break fetters and chains. Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, suicide demons will flee My Voice in this House. Yea, demons of all kinds of habits, saith the Lord. Yea, the spirits of addiction will bow when My Voice goes forth in this place. For truly, I shall raise it up and restore. The Voice of deliverance shall be heard in your midst, saith God.

And yea, the Lord would say unto thee, new unity shall dwell among thee. For yea, the Lord would say unto thee, I have seen thee as you have rallied. I have seen you as you have stirred yourself in the night, saith the Lord. And I shall not forget you. Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, I shall not forget you as you have called to Me. I will hear. I will answer. Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, “I shall not suffer anything to divide thee nor to separate thee,” saith the Lord. For I have called thee.

And yea, the Lord would say unto thee, many of you have sat back, ignoring My call. I call again, saith the Lord. I call again. I call. Yea, the Lord would say unto you, you can walk out of your habits. Yea, you can walk out of the chains that bind you. Yea, I call. I call, saith the Lord. Surrender yourselves to Me. Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, bind close together and draw nigh unto Me.

For yea, the Lord would say unto thee, the rest of this year shall be a troubling time in this nation, and in the nations of the world. Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, much blood shall be shed.

Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, great destruction shall come in many places, saith the Lord. But I shall hide you underneath My wings. For you are Mine, and I have called you with a holy calling, saith the Lord. Do not fear, neither be thou afraid. It is I. And I have spoken unto thee, because of My love for You, saith God. For I say again, the very voice of deliverance shall be restored in your midst and you shall see chains fall quickly, saith the Lord.

Deliverance from Nerve Pill

November 11, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Word of Knowledge given by Brother Shelley

The Lord also said into my spirit, there is somebody here tonight, that if you would reach up. You’re not reaching. You’re not reaching. But if you would reach up, God would heal you, and deliver you, and you would never have to take another pill for your nerves.

There’s healing in this House. If Jesus were here, if He were here tonight, He would see you in that nervous condition, and He would heal you for His Glory. If you’ll just reach up to Him by faith, He said, “You’d never have to take another pill to help you with your nerves.” And that spirit of manic depressant would have to leave you now, in the Name of Jesus. (Tongues)

Lord, I intercede for whoever that is that You’re speaking to. Because there are some of us that have been there. There are some of us that have been depressed. There are some of us that have been so depressed, we had to take medication to get through the day. Medication, Lord, to get up and go the day. And then medication to lay down at night and be able to sleep.

Lord, there was a time in my own life when I had to have medication to go to sleep. And then I had to take another pill to stay asleep. Then I had to have another pill to get up and have energy to function in the day. You gloriously, miraculous and supernaturally healed my body. Hallelujah.

Would you lift your hand, even as though that was you? Even though it’s maybe not you. But would you believe for that person? Perhaps they would be embarrassed to even acknowledge who they are.

I see that suicide spirit that God spoke about this morning, in the service. He said, “They will come. They will come with the spirit of suicide, and a Word of deliverance will be spoken.” I feel that spirit here tonight. Oh hallelujah. You’re the Deliverer, Jesus. (Tongues) if you can only believe. If you could only believe. Just as simple as that, the Lord can deliver you. Hallelujah…

Called Out & Chosen People

November 13, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Jonathan Hollis

Know this, saith the Lord, that I am opening the heavens for thee this night, saith God, that you might see into the realms, yea, and that you might know what I am declaring in this hour unto thee, saith the Lord.

For yea, I shall have a people that shall know what I am doing in the heavens, saith the Lord, and they might do that in the earth, saith God, that they might accomplish My will, yea, that they might know, saith God, what I do and what I declare, yea, even from eternity. And yea, you are that people, saith the Lord, a called out and a chosen people, to know My mind for this hour, to know My will.

And yea, ye shall pray against authorities, saith the Lord. Yea, you shall pray against authorities, and you shall see My will accomplished, yea even in this hour, saith the Lord. And I am giving you direction.

Yea, I shall give thee direction this night, saith the Lord, that you might go forth, yea, that you might know what I shall do through thee, saith God, and what I shall accomplish, yea, in this hour, yea, through thee, through My Bride, saith the Lord.

Crater Where New York Once Was

November 18, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

And I believe that we’ve got to pray. Because I feel in my spirit this morning that a great attack is coming to America. I feel that so strong. Strong enough to declare it to you this morning, and to those who are listening on the hookup.

I believe that one of these days, the vision that Brother Branham had is going to be completed. I believe that one of these days the vision that David Wilkerson had, and a similar vision that the Lord gave me when I was a young boy, is going to come to pass. I won’t take time to tell the others, but just let me tell mine quickly. I’ll read the Scripture. I don’t have a long reading. If you need to be seated, you can.

But when I was just a young boy, the Lord gave me a vision. And I saw a large crater, a huge indention in the ground. I saw the water. I saw the ocean. I saw the land. And on the land I saw a huge crater, perhaps many, many miles across. And I saw the smoke, thick billows of smoke rising up from that crater. And I asked in the vision, “What am I seeing?”

And the voice said. (And I’ve told this here many times. So it’s not something I’m pulling out of my hat this morning.) The voice said, “That was New York City.” It was gone. The whole city was demolished. Somebody said, “I don’t see how that could be possible.” Well, a prophet saw this nation looking like that. Great, great desolation.

Standing Against the Attacks of the Enemy

November 18, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jeffier Propst

The spirit that Brother Shelley prayed against Sister Vaughn, I had been praying the same thing over him. I seen the enemy attack. And I seen the enemy attack. And I said, “God, Satan’s intention is to destroy that man.” So today…

I want everybody to take their foot and draw a line in front of themselves, everybody. Chad, would you draw a line in front of yourself just for your mother-in-law today? Because the Lord said it’s drawing a line between Satan and the advances today.

Oh, in the Name of Jesus, I stand against the attacks of Satan, God. He will advance no farther. Lord, I pray for my pastor, God, that You’ll raise Him up, Lord. No more. Oh. No more, no more. (Tongues.) This day, this day, I stand… The Lord says, “I stand against the attacks of Satan this day.”

Lair of the Lion

November 25, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I saw that going in to this cave, I saw how it went straight in, and then it made an abrupt turn to the left. So that when you were standing at the mouth of the cave, it looked as though it were a dead end. The curve was so sharp in the entrance way, that standing at the mouth, you would say, “It’s just a little cut out in the mountain.”

But when I made a few steps in, I noticed in this vision that the path was very well worn. I noticed that there had been a lot of traffic in and out of this cave. And I said, “Surely, this that I see in front of me is not a dead end. Otherwise, why would there be so much traffic in and out, in and out?”

I could see the worn path, the little cut out in the dirt path, where people had been going in and out. It appeared to be so. And I made a few steps in this vision. And I’m not at all uncomfortable to talk about visions because I know they come from the Lord.

And as I made a few steps in, I saw that abrupt curve. I looked to the left and I saw that the cave, the passage way went on. And I made a few steps in, and it opened up before me a large cave. And the thing that stood out in my mind the most (And I want you to hear this.) was, everywhere I looked, there were piles of bones. Everywhere I looked in that cave were piles of bones. I looked down and I began to see all kinds of debris. And I noticed, that it looked to me like pieces of clothing that had been torn in shreds, and was scattered around in the midst of these bones.

Then I saw what looked like pieces of hide, or something like fur from animals that had been ripped to shreds, and was scattered around. I noticed that these bones were picked clean. And as I got closer, I realized that although some of these bones were probably the bones of animals, the majority of these bones were human bones.

There was nothing gory about it, but there was a feeling that came over me in prayer that caused my spirit to tremble. I knew that I was standing in a place where great people had stood before me. I knew that I was standing in a room, not only surrounded by bones, but I was standing in a room that had been filled with the destiny of great chosen people. And all that was left of their vision was piles of bones. All that was left of their destiny (Do you hear me?) was piles of bones.

All that was left of that which God had sowed into them was piles of bones, bleached white, picked clean. And a few scattered pieces of garment, and a little bit of fur where an animal or two had also found its way into this cave.

Listen to this. I asked the Lord. I began to weep because it was very, very real and vivid. And I asked the Lord, “Where am I standing? What is this cave?” And He spoke this to my spirit. He said, “This is the liar of the lion. The liar, or lair, of the lion.” And I said, “I don’t really know what that means.” But I assumed and later confirmed that it meant the den of the lion.

Now since I’d been preaching last Sunday on our adversary, the great imposter, (anybody with me?) who is always trying to imitate The Lion. You see, as that banner portrays, there is a Lion. We spoke about it Tuesday night. There is a Lion of the Tribe of Judah, who has prevailed to take the Book, to open it and to loose the Seals thereof.

No Right to Question the Potter

November 25, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I saw a vessel, as it was being shaped on the Potter’s Wheel. And the thing that caught my attention, and amazed me the most, Jonathan. It was a pitcher. I could tell that it was going to be a pitcher, because I saw the lip as it was formed. And the handle.

The odd thing of the vision was. This pitcher took a voice and spoke. And it spoke the Scripture. “Why hast thou made me thus?” Think about that. The pitcher, the vessel, said to the Potter. I saw it. “Why hast Thou made me thus?” Does not the Potter? Remember the Word said, “Does not the Potter have power over the clay? To fashion it according to His will and design?”

You know, sometimes a real potter doesn’t know what He’s going to make, until He starts making it. A painter doesn’t always know what he’s… But God doesn’t work that way. When God starts making a vessel, He sees the end.

God let me know in my spirit, I have no right. As I was coming to church this morning. “I have no right to question the Potter of why He has made me thus.” He knows what’s best for me. And the thing for me to do is, shut my mouth. (It’s a good Southern expression.) Shut my mouth and let the Potter fashion me, and mold me in the way that He would so desire.

Accidental Bomb Exploding

November 25, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I just saw in the Spirit something like an explosion. But it seemed to be… (Turn this up.) It seemed to be accidental. It seemed to be as though a bomb or something was to be released, and it wouldn’t fall, or something like that. I don’t know exactly how to explain what I saw. But it appeared to me that something was exploding. But there was something all wrong about it, very wrong. It was not the right timing or the right purpose.

Would you pray with me right now that the Lord…? It just flashed before me as I stood here to begin to speak.

Lord, we don’t even know what we’re praying about. But we know, Lord, that these things don’t happen for a mistake. They happen for a divine reason. (Tongues.)

Father, whatever this is, an accident of war, we pray, oh God, that if there’s any way You could put it down, that it would never happen, that You would stop it, that You would warn somebody, that You would even perhaps correct the problem. You’re able. In the Name of Jesus.

I can see… As I’m standing here, I can see something like a lever, a metal, a bar, a piece of metal like a bar that drops into another little groove of metal. And it is supposed to release up out of that groove. But it’s not… It won’t move up. I don’t know how to describe it to you. But if it were a piece of metal like that, the little indention and a bar sets in that piece of metal. And it’s supposed to, when it’s released, it’s supposed to move up and out of that to release. But it’s hanging. That crossbar is hanging there in that little groove, and won’t be released.

Oh, thank You, Jesus. Oh, God. (Tongues.) Oh God, it wouldn’t be so important, but some mother’s child is, some son is operating that piece of equipment, oh God. Jesus. I need you to pray right now.

Lord, we just beseech You. You didn’t show it for nothing. You showed it for a reason. And we intercede concerning that thing. God, if there’s anything You can do to spare those lives of our soldiers, oh God, fighting so that we could be free tonight, so that we could fly in an airplane without fear, so that we could work our jobs without fear of attack…

Oh God, they’re risking their own lives for us to enjoy freedom in this nation. We lift them up in prayer right now. In the Name of Jesus Christ. (Tongues.) Hallelujah. (Tongues.) Hallelujah, hallelujah.

I even heard a voice crying out, “There’s a problem.” And when that voice cried out, “There’s a problem,” he said, “Captain, there is a problem.” I don’t know if that was a nickname, or a rank, or the name that was given because he was perhaps a pilot. I don’t know what it was. But I could hear a voice speaking out, “Captain, there is a problem.” But it was… In this vision, it was too late. But I know that it’s in God’s hands. And I know for some reason He has asked us to intercede concerning that. And we’re going to be faithful to do that.

Pouring Us into a Mold

November 25, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

Someone spoke something to me recently about a vision that they had seen. And I don’t know if this is what it was like or not. But in my spirit God was just showing me. Perhaps you’ll remember these old things. When I was a boy, a small boy, I was somewhere with my grandfather, my mother’s father. It could have been… (Did we ever go to Bush Gardens?)

I remember a machine. And I’ve seen them since then, but only a couple times. I saw one at the Knoxville Zoo. A machine that sits there with hot wax in it. You know what I’m talking about? And you put money in it. And it has a metal mold that opens up. And when you put money in it, it pours hot wax into that mold. Has anybody ever seen one of those? And the mold closes. And it waits. It tells you it’s… You have to wait. And in a few minutes that mold opens up. And a little wax figure drops out the bottom. And you take it.

When we were at the Knoxville Zoo… I can just see myself, though, standing somewhere with my grandfather. And he died when I was five years old, so my memory is stirred to remember something like that.

But when we were at the Knoxville Zoo with Benjamin, they had a nice display of otters. And we enjoyed watching them. And as we were leaving, they had one of those machines. Anybody ever seen one? My goodness. And you put in a dollar, I think probably, four quarters, or something like that. And it poured. It opened up, the mold. You could see it. The machine is open. And you could see in through the glass and watch it pour the wax down in. And then the mold closes.

I could just see that in the Spirit. Hot wax being poured down into a mold, and the mold closing like that. And if it wasn’t for the timer, if it wasn’t for the timer, then you could leave the wax in too long or not long enough. But because it’s on a timer, it knows exactly how long for the wax, that hot wax, to be in that mold, so that the image comes out. We’ve got it at home, a perfect little otter.

I could see something like that in the Spirit, that God desires to pour us. First of all, you’ve got to be heated up. and you’ve got to be pourable. But I could see God desiring to pour some of us into that kind of a mold, so that when He’s finished, it opens up, and we come out in His image and in His likeness.

The Enemy Is Out to Devour

November 25, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I saw this cave as I described this morning. And I was standing at the mouth of this cave. And from where I was standing, it appeared that it very quickly came to a dead end. And I noticed at my feet that it was a well-worn path that had been traveled many times. And as I stepped into this cave, I was able to see that, in fact, it did not dead end, but it took a sharp turn to the left. And after making a few steps to the left, it opened up into a very large room in this cave.

And all over this cave were piles of picked-clean, bleached looking bones. And I noticed that some of them seemed to be the skeletal remains of animals. But more than anything else, I saw that there was a mass of human bones that were scattered, piled. Some were…

As I recall now, some were almost intact, almost like skeletons intact, while others were just scattered bones across the floor and in piles. I saw little shreds of garment and little shreds of fur that were left over, I guess, from the prey that had been taken by this lion.

While I was standing there, another vision broke out in another dimension. And I saw this lion that hunted alone. He was a loner. And he would crouch and wait for the opportunity to take this prey, and would drag it back to this den where he would devour it.

My spirit was immediately reminded of that verse of Scripture, “Be sober; be vigilant. For your adversary… Your adversary is as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

I said some weeks ago or last week, “That devil is not out to hinder you. He’s not out to nip at your heels. But he’s out to destroy you and to devour you, to drag you to his den and leave you there as one of his trophies.”

It’s like Jesus said to Peter, “Satan has desired to sift you as wheat.” But he said, “I have prayed for you, that your faith fail not.” I believe that somebody is praying for you. That’s why these seasons of prayer are so important, because we’re holding one another up before the Throne of God.

I feel tonight… You think I’m crazy, maybe. But I can feel the prowl. This I’m feeling right now in the Spirit must be something like the hunted feels when he knows that he’s being hunted, and yet he cannot see that which is coming to devour him.

How many of you can imagine that feeling of sick anticipation knowing that a lion is on the prowl? You have experienced something like that perhaps in your life where you’ve felt like there were eyes upon you, like somebody was watching you. But when you looked around, you couldn’t see it. You couldn’t see the source of that feeling. I’m feeling that just now in the Spirit.

And I feel to tell you that surely the enemy is out to devour you. He has probably already plotted your demise and your destruction. He has probably already seen the way that he would take you in his snare, that he would drag you to his den and devour you spiritually.

This battle that we face as God’s children is a literal warfare. We call it spiritual warfare only because it takes place in a spiritual realm or a spiritual dimension. But the battle is a literal battle between the forces of God and the forces of evil.

This Is the Final Hour

December 7, 2001 (Friday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

The Lord would say unto thee this night, yea, I am the Lord. And I am here for you, saith God. Yea, in this hour I’ve spoken to thee from My Word because I love you, saith the Lord, because I’m calling to you. Yea the Lord would say unto thee this night, tonight you can come. If you’ll call upon Me. I’m here, and I’ll answer you, saith the Lord. And I will touch your heart.

Yea, and I will begin the change that you so desire. The Lord would say unto thee, do not wait. Do not wait, saith the Lord, and continue to put it off, yea, sit service after service not heeding My call. The Lord would say unto thee, there could come the hour that you would need Me and I would not be found. There could come a time for you, saith the Lord, that you would call on Me and I would not hear you, and I would not come to your rescue.

But the Lord would say unto thee, this night I’m calling to you. I’m available to you, saith the Lord. For I would say the days of playing church must be over in your life. Yea, the Lord would say, again this year, Yea, I’m setting My plan across the world. Yea, the nations of the world are falling into My divine plan. This is what I have chosen, saith the Lord. These things are not just the workings of man.

For the Lord would say unto thee, I have chosen this. Yea, I have used men to bring My will to pass across the world. Yea the Lord would say unto thee, My Word is being fulfilled. Yea, My revelation is coming to pass. This is the end.

Yea the Lord would say unto thee, dedicate your heart to Me. Yield yourself to Me. For this is it. If there’s ever a time that you will be used, it could be now. For this is the final hour, saith the Lord. I’m getting ready to pour My Spirit out upon all those who will seek My face I’m getting ready to establish My Truth upon this world, saith the Lord. I’m going to gather Mine. I’m going to gather My elect. Yea, I will use you, saith the Lord… [Unclear audio] …surrender. I’m here this night calling unto you.

Battling in the Mind for the Strengthening of the Ankles

December 11, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I saw two arms locked like this in an arm-wrestling match. And I saw the struggle between these arms. (You’ve arm wrestled before.)


And I saw these two arms. I didn’t recognize the arm. It didn’t look like anybody I knew. It wasn’t that graphic. But I could see the struggle. I could see, Sister Laurel, beads of sweat popping out on the forearms. And I could see the struggle.

You know there is that long, that long time where no one is getting anywhere. And then you see those muscles begin to twitch like that, almost involuntarily. And that struggle’s going on. And I could see those…

And I said, “Lord, what am I seeing?” And you know what He spoke to me? He said, “This is the battle that’s going on in somebody’s mind.” What a battle going on in somebody’s mind. And this was all I asked the Lord. I knew in my heart, I felt like I knew what the Lord was showing me. And I asked the Lord. I said, “Who? What will the outcome be? Who will win?”

And the Lord, the Spirit of the Lord seemed almost offended that I would ask the question, “Who will win?” But I know, sometimes the enemy deceives people’s minds. And I said, “Who will win?”

And I could feel the Spirit draw away from me. If you’ve ever been praying in the Spirit realm. I could feel the Spirit of the Lord draw away from me, as though I had offended Him by asking, “Who will win?” He said, “I’ll win.” I’ll win.

And then I asked the Lord one other question before I got up off my knees. I said, “Lord, why the struggle? If You’re in control…” Have you ever wondered that? “God, if You’re in control, and one touch of Your finger could end the struggle, why don’t You just come to our rescue? Is it that You delight in? I didn’t ask God this, but I’ve wondered it. “Is it that You delight to see us struggle?”

Have you ever wondered if perhaps God enjoys seeing people struggle? No, you probably never wondered that. I have. It seems sometimes that God enjoys the fight. I could feel, feel that thing coming up in me, as if I wanted to ask God that. And the Lord spoke to me so sweet in my spirit. And He said this, “It’s for the strengthening of his ankles.” His ankles.

I’ve got weak ankles. I appreciate my ankles. If you have problems with your ankles, you’ll appreciate them, brother. You’ll appreciate them the next time. I said, “Lord, why ankles?”

He said, “Because ankles support the whole body when it’s in a standing position.” Hallelujah.

Healing on the Horizon

December 16, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Garvis Jr.

Praise the Lord. I love Jesus tonight. I want to be faithful to thank Him for His mercy and grace. If it wasn’t for His grace, I wouldn’t be standing here today. I want to take just a few moments to tell something that happened Friday, while I was taking my turn in the prayer watch. I took the prayer directives, and I went one by one through the prayer directives. And I prayed for everything in the prayer directives.

And I had a little time extra. I like to take a little time at the end to try to meditate on the Lord and listen to His Voice. As I was walking through the bedroom, the atmosphere in the bedroom changed. I could tell a difference between the mood and the atmosphere. And I’ve come to realize, and I know that most every time that this particular atmosphere comes to me, that the Lord wants to speak something to me or show us. And I’ve come to recognize that.

I just sat down in the corner, and I just began to meditate on the Lord. Just to worship and praise Him. And I just began to meditate on the Lord, to worship and praise Him a minute. And the atmosphere changed again. And in the springtime…

This is the way that the Lord gave it to me to explain. In the springtime, a lot of times when you’re outside, you can feel a change in the atmosphere, just before it begins to rain. Sometimes you say, “We can smell the rain coming.” And the Lord spoke into my spirit and He told me. He said. I told him, I said, “I smell something different. I smell something kind of…”

The Lord spoke to me and said, “What you’re smelling is healing coming. You smell healing coming. It’s just over the horizon.” And the Presence of the Lord came in just so real and spoke this to me, and showed me this. And He even showed me an horizon, and told me that healing is just over that horizon. It’s coming your way.

And then I also recognized by the Spirit of the Lord that it wasn’t just for me or my household, but it was for this entire Body. And I began to pray, “Lord, send this healing. Send this atmosphere all to the nations of the world. To every nation in this world that You have a little Bride. Send Your healing to her.”

And as I was coming to church this morning, I was meditating on what the Lord has spoke to me and shown me. The Lord spoke again to me and told me. He said, “Just before the rains come, just a little sprinkle.” And He said, “You’re standing in the time of the sprinkle right now. It is sprinkling healing now. And then there’s coming showers of healing. And then there’s coming great rains of healing. And that’s just over the horizon.”

Hour Glass/Tune Is Running Out

December 25, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I had a little vision that I wanted to share with you. It’s real simple. I don’t know exactly what it means, but I, I believe that the Lord knows. Two things I saw. The first thing I saw was that, as we were praising the Lord, was that… I guess it’s not a stereo-type. I don’t know what you’d call it.

But a very common symbol of New Year’s, you have seen the hour glass. And I saw the hour glass. It seems like I’ve seen that before some years ago. But I saw the hour glass, and I saw that almost all of the sand had come out of the top of hour glass.

And it was so odd, because there were only a few grains. Almost so that you could count them, in the top. But they were dropping very methodically. They were dropping as though something was holding them back. You know, usually when it gets to the end, doesn’t it get faster? It seems to be like the last few drops, or the grains of sand come out swiftly together, as the bottom sort of opens up.

But I saw these grains of sand dropping very purposefully, just like that. Coming out one at a time. Do you understand what I’m saying? Time is running out for something. I could see that. And I know that it’s just the hand of the Lord holding it back, letting it drop through just a little bit at a time. And I believe that’s for somebody, and not something. So I want us to think about that in our heart, as we leave the House tonight.

Turning Something Around in Israel

December 25, 2001 (Tuesday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

And the other things was, I saw the Israeli flag. And how many of you that a lot of times when you have a flag or something, a picture, it is fainter on the back side than it is on the true side? Do you understand what I’m saying? I don’t know how to describe it.

Perhaps because it has been printed on instead of sewn on, so you, if you’re looking on the wrong side of something, I guess a sheet that has a print on it would be a good example. A bed sheet that has a print on it.

On the top side. In fact, some people will turn their sheets upside down. Some people will turn their sheets with the pattern down, so that when they… Anybody do that here? Oh my. Look at there. A lot of odd folks. No, I guess that’s the right way. They’ll turn the pattern down, so that when they fold the sheet down, the pattern will be on top.

Well, I saw the Israeli flag like that. And I saw that it was flying wrong side toward me. The faint side of the star of David was facing me. The faintest side. And I saw in the Spirit, as a hand came and turned that flag around, so that the brightest side, the truest side of the flag was showing.

And God said, “Next year, I’m turning something around in Israel.” So I tell you, that has… I could hardly contain myself. I don’t know if you saw me, but I just, I was just rocking. I kept catching myself. I’m just rocking back and forth, trying to decide whether to interrupt the service, or wait until it was my turn. But I believe that that’s a Word straight from the Lord. I don’t know how, I don’t what’s going to turn around. But I believe it will be for good.

The Famine is Over

December 27, 2001 (Thursday Evening)

Personal Word directed to Brother Shelley

Prophetic Word given by Sister Jeffier Propst

And Brother Shelley, you walk in a different aspect of Joseph. Whereas you stored up and you gave out. But the Lord wanted me to tell you. (I need some men about Brother Shelley, please.)

When I heard him say his foot was bothering him again, I felt, I felt the war, the feeling of “I’m at war again, Lord.” The Lord wanted me to tell you, brother, that the famine is over.

Pushing Away & Cutting Off the Holy Ghost

December 27, 2001 (Thursday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

And He said, “When I send My Holy Ghost to speak to you, and you push me away, that’s one thing. But when I send My Holy Ghost to deal with you, and you cut Me off. That’s another thing.”

Restrained Eagle

December 27, 2001 (Thursday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Judith Schapals

And the second thing was during our past prayer watch. I saw an eagle, and his eyes were cast down, and he was so sad looking. (Oh Jesus.) He was being restrained. But oh, how he wanted to get up to the heights and soar.

Prayers Turning Away the Beast

December 27, 2001 (Thursday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Sister Judith Schapals

There are a couple of things that have been pressing me lately, things that I have felt and sensed in my spirit. It’s gripped me because of the seriousness of it. And I need to share them. And the first thing that I saw. I was in a dwelling place with others, and I could hear the rustling and stirring of an evil predator outside.

And I heard as it circled around and around our dwelling place. I could hear the crushing of the leaves, as it was walking and circling around us. It was an awful uneasy feeling. And finally I announced, “Let’s open the door and see what is out there.” Opening the door, I saw a large lion.

He was sitting and he was looking directly at me in the open doorway, the large mane around his head shook, as he was shaking his head back and forth. I caught his eyes and they were evil. Then I shouted, “Shut the door. Shut the door.”

I felt so impressed last Tuesday night when Brother Shelley was preaching about making our nest with tears of prayers, and always going back to that little nest. I felt that our prayers would cause this beast to stand up, turn around and walk off. Hallelujah.

The Sword of the Lord Coming to Cut the Spirit of Malignancy

December 29, 2001 (Saturday Evening)

Vision & Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

While we were worshiping the Lord, I had a vision. And I saw the sword of the Lord, as it was being placed upon coals of fire. And I saw the blade of the sword becoming red hot. And I saw that red-hot blade of the sword cutting into a body. I knew it was the body of a man, representing something. I’m sure.

But as that sword with the heated blade cut down, it cut passed the skin. I saw it cutting through the fat, the flesh. I saw it cutting in deep. And laying there in… (And it just made one cut. One cut right down.) And laying there in that was something that looked like a brain, almost. Because it was, it had lobes or something on it. The Spirit of the Lord spoke these words. (I feel that same anointing now.)

The Lord said, “Satan has brought among you a spirit of malignancy.” The Word of the Lord is unto you this night, that the Sword of the Lord has been heated. Yea, I’m sending My Sword, saith the Lord, to cut away the malignancy, yea, the spirit of cancer that has come into your midst, saith the Lord.

Yea, I have seen the contagiousness of sin. I have seen the contagiousness of the spirit of malignancy. The Lord would say unto thee this night, I shall not suffer it to spread any further. For I have seen it go from person to person, saith the Lord. Yea, it has distorted My Word. Yea, that spirit has come to divide.

But yea, I the Living God, will come this night and begin the separation, saith the Lord. For it is not a man nor a woman, but it is a spirit. And I shall separate the spirit of malignancy. It shall not be allowed to mutate nor to deform good cells. For the Lord would say unto thee, no more shall a good life be ruined. No more shall a good spirit be contaminated. No more shall that which I have cleansed be made filthy by this spirit. For I, the Living God, hath discerned it in the midst of thee this night. And with the Sword of the Lord I shall cut it out, and I shall cast it from the midst of thee.

And yea, the Word of the Lord would say unto thee, any man or woman, who would stand in My way, yea, I the Living God, shall plow you over, saith the Lord. For you will not stop Me from bringing My Bride to perfection in this place. For yea, the Word of the Lord is unto thee this night. I shall still send forth this place to the nations of the world. They shall still go forth proclaiming the Truth that I have revealed unto her. And yea, I shall give her souls, souls more than she has asked for. I shall give you more than you have asked for, saith the Lord. For I have come this night to rip it away. And My Sword is sharp. And yea, I will not suffer it to continue to abide among thee, saith God.

A Spirit Attacking the Body

December 29, 2001 (Saturday Evening)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

I saw this as a spirit that desired to attack everyone. But I saw that, as that spirit would attach itself, it tried to bring mutation. That in some people, they… It’s like the antibodies of the body. In some people, the Spirit of God would rise up within them, and would refuse.

In fact, like the blood cells of the body raise up to destroy disease. There is a time that bad cells destroy good cells. But I see that there have been times that the Lord has allowed those good cells to devour bad cells. And to keep that spirit from being rooted. If it had not been for the Lord, every one of us, every one of us could have fallen victim.

And I don’t believe that the Lord would have me to explain ‘him.’ It’s His business tonight. But if you stand in this House, and you let the enemy cause you to disbelieve, or be upset, or to be angry, or feel like that someone is directing a Word to you, you’ll miss what God has said tonight. Hallelujah.

I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, “I’m not talking about a person. I’m not talking about a man or a woman. But a spirit that I desire to cut out from the midst of thee.” Hallelujah. Praise the Lord. Hallelujah…

Preparing a People for the Rapture of the Bride

December 30, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

And as I started across the floor to the answering machine, I began to see flashes of light all around me like a flashbulb. And I saw those flashes. And behind those flashes was like a white streak. And it appeared that, as the light would flash, it would leave a white smoke-like, behind it. It was so odd. Like the jet-stream of an airplane. Just a streak of light.

And I thought, “Lord.” I didn’t see anything else. But as I looked again, I went on over to press the button. I turned back that way. I could see it again. And this time, in that flash of light, and in that after-smoky look, I saw the faces of believers. Faintly. Faintly, like they were covered behind that light, behind that smoke. And I thought, “That is so strange.” And I played the message from Brother Williams.

And I turned back around. (My wife was surprised that he called.) And I turned back around and I went on into the den and sat down. And I said, “Lord, what have I just seen?” And the Lord said, “I just wanted to tell you that, even in your midst, I am preparing a people for the rapture of the Bride.” Hallelujah.

And although I know it won’t be like a flashbulb, and I know it won’t be like a streak of vapor, (that’s how I saw this change.) And the faces of the saints behind that flash of light. Of course, I believe the rapture is supernatural. I don’t believe that it’s what a lot of people have thought it to be. I believe it is a supernatural happening. Only by the Holy Ghost and by the supernatural power of God will we be changed.

I don’t believe it’s the way the authors have written their little books about it, and the film-makers have made their little movies about it. I don’t believe it will be that way at all. The prophet of God told us that’s not the concept of the rapture that we need. But it encouraged me to know.

December 30, 2001 (Sunday Morning)

Vision given to Brother Shelley

So he ran over, flopped up on the couch and he said, “Come and check the messages.” And as I started across the floor to the answering machine, I began to see flashes of light all around me like a (excuse me just a moment.) like a flashbulb. Or what do you? The flash of a camera. (We used to call them flashbulbs. Didn’t we? That’s what they used to be.)

And I saw those flashes. And behind those flashes was like a white streak. And it appeared that, as the light would flash, it would leave a white smoke-like, behind it. It was so odd. Like the jet-stream of an airplane. Just a streak of light.

And I thought, “Lord.” I didn’t see anything else. But as I looked again, I went on over to press the button. I turned back that way. I could see it again.

Your Wilderness Is Just About Over

December 30, 2001 (Sunday Evening)

Prophetic Word given by Brother Shelley

But I want to tell you something. There is an end of that valley. There’s an end of that wilderness. And by the Word of the Lord, I want to declare to not one, but several people in this House tonight, “Your wilderness is just about over.” Hallelujah. Oh hallelujah. Glory to God.

Your test is about your testimony. Will you be faithful? Will you be faithful to tell the goodness of God, when He turns your test into a testimony? Will you be faithful to declare it when that big dark valley, or trial, or wilderness experience you’re going through, when God brings you out in the power of His Spirit? Will you just forget about it? Or will you take an opportunity to share it with somebody who may be experiencing, or who may experience the same thing that you’re going through?

I know, brother, sister, when you’re in the wilderness, you’re just sure nobody’s ever been there before. I want you to know, the devil’s only got so many valleys. Some of us are bound to end up in the same one every now and then.

Go Forth in the Power of the Spirit

December 31, 2001 (Monday Evening)

Prophecy given through Brother Shelley

Go forth. Go forth. Go forth. Go forth. In the power of the Spirit, go forth. Go forth in the power of the Spirit. For there shall be a change for you this coming year. Go forth. You shall come forth out of the wilderness, in the power of My Spirit. Hallelujah. You shall come forth out of your wilderness in the power of My Spirit. You shall experience a change of heart, change of mind, a change of spirit. (Tongues)

A Mantle Laid Before Us

December 31, 2001 (Monday Evening)

Message in Tongues given through Sister Adelaida Vidal & Interpretation given through Brother Shelley

For the Lord would say unto thee this night, surely I, the Lord thy God, have laid something upon thee. Yea, I’ve laid it upon thee this night, saith the Lord, even like a mantle.

Yea, the Lord would say unto thee, I give you a choice. Yea, the Lord would say, “The choice is yours.” Will you step into that which I have promised you, saith the Lord? If you’ll make that conscious decision, you shall know it, for it shall overtake you, saith the Lord. Yea, it shall overshadow you, it shall drip from you, saith God. For I am not a man that I should lie, neither the son of man, that he would need to repent. That that I have spoken, I’ll do.

But the Lord would say, will you have it? Will you receive the gift that I’ve offered unto thee? Yea, I shall pour back into thee all that you have lost. Yea, I shall build you up in My Holy Ghost, until you run over, saith the Lord. Yea, I shall release a great anointing for miracles among you this year. You shall know miracles on the right, and miracles on the left. Miracles will be so great, saith the Lord, that you’ll have to watch yourself, so that miracles do not become common to you.

For I shall heal the sick and the afflicted, saith the Lord. Yea, I shall deliver the oppressed and cause the captive to go free. There shall be miracles of healing, and miracles of deliverance, saith the Lord. For surely this is the time of the restitution of all things, when My Bride shall walk in those things that I have been promising her. Will you step up, saith the Lord? Will you be a part, saith God?

For yea, the Lord would say unto thee, the choice is yours. I lay it before you. You can wear it like a mantle, saith the Lord. Or you can let it be cast upon the ground, step over it as you leave this place. The Lord would say unto thee, “Would you wear it?” If you wear it, I shall fill you with glory. You shall know revelation, and upon My Word, yea, you shall walk in the miraculous. For the Lord would say unto thee, I shall send the seeker to you, and there shall be deliverance in this House. Yea, even like never before. Thus saith the Lord.
