EYE OF THE EAGLE and THE EYE OF THE STORM



 

How we need to have the Eye of the Eagle today with what is coming upon the earth in these closing days of human history. I read an article yesterday about the rise of martyrdom of Christians around the world. The article was focused on the middle East and the murder of thousands of Christians by ISIS and other Islamic groups. This went on unchecked during the 8 years of the Obama administration as everyone knows and instead of giving asylum and aid to Christians from the middle East he chose to import almost exclusively muslims into America. But the article went on to give some statistics regarding just how much the persecution of Christians and imprisonment of us has increased throughout the world and this is a clear fulfillment of what Jesus prophesied.

But there is much more going on here than meets the eye, i.e., the "normal" physical eye. That's why you need to have the Eye of the Eagle as we've preached since 1999 when the Holy Spirit first gave us this terminology. The Lord gave me a message for our church in Libby, Montana, back in 2004 titled, "The Perfect Storm," and I believe we are in that time frame now.

There is great persecution coming to the Church throughout the world and more so in America--the Lord told me so in 2015 that in the future, "the greatest persecution against the Church was going to come from America." Now, I believe the Trump administration, as I wrote many times on the CCI ministry Facebook site that no longer exists, was raised up like a Cyrus to "delay" some of the evil Satan has planned for us but it's not a time to celebrate. Rather, it's a time to prepare for war and what is coming against the Church and Christian families. And most of all, it's a time to recognize that we are not at peace but merely in the Eye of the Storm where there is quiet.

Remember, Jesus Himself gave us a stern warning in what theologians refer to as "The Olivet Discourse" that most preachers never mention because they teach that the Church will be raptured out of the world before this occurs. So let me do a little expository teaching this Sunday morning. Jesus said, 

"Take heed that no man deceive you. (Wow! did you get that beginning? He's strongly warning us that there's a grave danger of being deceived by men! That means, my brother and sister, you'd better develop the Eye of the Eagle and know that you are hearing from the Spirit of the Lord today). I submit that one of the greatest areas of assumption and deception "by men" because it's almost universally held, is in the pre-trib doctrine of the rapture of the Church. I wrote an article detailing the Scriptures on this some years ago that you can read in our archives so I won't rehash it here.

"For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." (Notice He said, "Many" and I submit that we've never lived in a day like today where there are so many false ministries and false churches throughout the world and I'm not talking about White Garment type false churches; I'm talking about those who use the Name of Jesus but do not preach or "do" the genuine Word. Remember, He didn't say that they would claim to be Jesus, although some no doubt do, but He said they would "come in my name" and say, "I am Christ" like the Balaam boys on T.V. do to get you to send the "ministry" they are whoring for $1,000. Don't forget, the Greek word here Christ means "anointed" and they claim to be anointed by God but the fact is, dear ones, unless you have a good gift of Discerning of Spirits you will not recognize that anointing because it is so close to the real thing that I've seen pastors I admired be fooled by it. Notice also He said that these falsely anointed ones "shall deceive many" and we know that's the case 'cause so many send their hard earned $ to these whores and as I shared almost 30 years ago in MSDK, it's one way Satan keeps God's money out of the hands of genuine ministries.)

"And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet." (War is a sign of conflict; there will always be war until the real Prince of Peace takes control of the earth and then as Isaiah prophesied, there will be peace even in the animal kingdom, pretty amazing will that time be).

"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places." (And in case you don't know it, famine is coming to America; I don't have the timing on it yet but we've known about it for decades just like we have the coming financial collapse. Many years ago I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, "The land of plenty shall have plenty no more." So, like in Joseph's day, we have a period of time to prepare for what is coming and if we are wise we will do so.) I'm reminded of something the Lord told me back in 1980 about this time. He said, "The power of the devil will become so strong that only those who are strong in the Word and faith will survive."

"All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they shall deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake." (Now, clearly Jesus is talking about the Church here because only the Church names the Name of Jesus so the Church is still around during this time, i.e., the "beginning of sorrows," isn't it?)

"And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." (Notice the only ones He said would be "saved"; those who "endure unto the end." He is prophesying about a day when there would be so much sin and lawlessness and betrayal, even among Christians, that "the love of many shall wax cold.")

So what is our response to be to these key words of Jesus that pertain to the years just ahead? We need to prepare. And how do you prepare? Well, first of all, you need to know what's coming, right?

What if I came to your house in Missoula, Montana, to visit and even though there's still snow on the ground I see you out front with a huge supply of plywood boarding up the windows? I ask you, "What are you doing brother Jones?" And you reply, "What do you think I'm doing; I'm getting ready for the hurricane that's going to hit next week."

Well, I'm going to give you that "deer in the headlights look" because when was the last time a hurricane hit Missoula, Montana? How about never! So perhaps you are preparing for the wrong thing or else I am, right? Who has the Eye of the Eagle? You must have the Eye of the Eagle to know what to prepare for. It won't do you any good to prepare for a tornado if a famine is coming.

Remember Jesus' words in the gospels: "As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man ..." 

In Noah's day, he spent about 60 years building the ark it would seem, and all this time people were thinking he'd "lost it" because there was no body of water anywhere close, not to mention the fact that such a huge structure could not have been moved in those days. But Hebrews shares something important for us to understand for our day and Jesus' prophecy about the similarity between now and Noah's day,

"By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house: by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith."

Notice closely the exact words and open your eagle eyes to see: 1) Noah was "being warned of God," and even though God found him to be a good man he had to possess "faith" to heed this warning; I submit that Jesus has warned us today in Matthew 24 of what is coming and we must have "faith" to heed this warning and prepare as Noah did, 2) Notice what God warned him about, "things not seen as yet"; this is a Word of Wisdom from 1 Cor. 12. Well, haven't we been warned by Jesus in Matthew 24 about "things not seen as yet?" Doubtly so and if we have the Eye of the Eagle we see the similarity between now and Noah's day.

Our prayer at CCI is that you develop the Eye of the Eagle. We have many teaching articles on the website archives and in CD messages in the bookstore to help you with this but don't delay during this lull before the storm. Remember, if you've ever ridden through a genuine hurricane as I did Alicia then you know that after the first wall hits there is complete calm when the eye of the hurricane passes over your house. I even went out into the front yard and was so amazed to look up at the clear, blue sky and feel the calmness but then the back wall--the most destructive portion of the hurricane hits after the calm and we need to be ready for what is coming just ahead.

It's important that you prepare yourself and your family, especially your own children. We need to be prepared for martydom should it come and this is difficult to explain to young children we may have at home but there is a coming day when many Christians, including children, will face a choice--deny Christ or die. We must prepare for that day using the Eye of the Eagle while we're still in the Eye of the Storm.

MARANATHA!

THE POWER OF COMPASSION



WHAT ARE YOUR ISHMAELS?

BY J.P. TIMMONS

FEBRUARY 11, 2017

 

In Genesis 17 the Lord is having a conversation with Abraham regarding His promise to Abraham that his progeny would be as endless as the stars in the heaven. When you consider that Abram is now 99 years old the limits of the faith he had been given this promise when he was 85 and the Scriptures record Abram’s response that the Apostle Paul later receives a revelation on regarding justification by faith—“And he believed the Lord, and he counted it to him as righteousness.” (Genesis 15:6).

But 14 years have now passed. Ishmael is 13 years old and even though Abraham {God changes both his and Sarah’s names in this chapter (Genesis 17)} knows that the Lord explicitly told him 14 years before that Ishmael would not be the promised child it is becoming harder and harder to stand in faith because he is now 99 years old and 99 year olds do not give birth to children to a mother who is 90.

The great Apostle Paul penned by the Spirit words that Abraham and we today in the Church have the most difficulty believing—“We walk by faith, not by sight.” That’s why it is so important for you to develop the Eye of the Eagle as we continue to impress upon Christians—if you don’t develop your spiritual eyes like Elisha did you will never know what is going on in the spirit realm and will always be unsure of God’s plans for you.

In Genesis 17 God is reiterating His covenant promises to Abraham and says, “I have made you the father of a multitude of nations.” Notice the tense—it’s already done! When was it done? It was done 14 years before when Abraham was 85 years old and God made him the promise.

And even though the Word declares that Abraham “believed God and it was accounted to him as righteousness” he still allowed Sarah to talk him into having relations with her servant, Hagar, which gave birth to Ishmael. And even though Abraham has had 13 years of a relationship with Ishmael he’s been told that this child was not the promised child.

So notice Abraham’s reaction when the Lord appears to him (and Sarah) at age 99. The Lord—as He always does—knows it’s a “done deal” because He has spoken the Word which must come to pass. But He wants to reveal further matters regarding the covenant to Abraham so He discusses the need for circumcision for all of the male children in his household. This time Abraham responds to the promise by falling on his face and thinking thoughts which are not of faith—“Shall a child be born to a man who is a hundred years old? Shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?” (Genesis 17:17)

As a result of this erroneous thinking Abraham responds to God with this statement that you should meditate on for a bit: “Oh that Ishmael might live before you!” What is he doing? Ishmael was a child of the flesh, not the child of promise. Abraham is tired; he’s old; he’s tired of standing in faith for this child of promise that never seems to come. So he makes a plea to God to just forget about God’s plan and “go with Ishmael.” After all, Ishmael is already a part of the family and he’s now a teenager. Abraham is asking God to follow Abraham’s plans and use this child of the flesh to bring about God’s covenant plans and this can never be done.

A child of flesh will always be at odds with the child of promise—this is why the Arabs are still trying to destroy Israel. And we must learn as Abraham did that our plans of the flesh can never accomplish the will of the Lord which must be according to Zechariah 4:6.

Yet we tend to do the same thing as Abraham did in our own lives. In fact, most churches (not the true Church that I always capitalize since it represents the plans and will of the Lord Jesus and not the doctrines of men and demons) are living proof that Ishmael is still alive—they are churches of the flesh and not the Spirit of the Lord. The Lord Jesus cannot even get into them as depicted in Revelation 3:20 of this Church age because Jesus is having to knock and ask to come inside the doors of the church that He died for and purchased yet He cannot get in for they are worshiping their own Ishmaels inside the doors.

Nowhere do we see this more clearly than in the Book of Acts which is the only book to learn about the early Church—how it was birthed and how it functioned and grew through prayer, boldness and the teaching of the Apostles and full functioning Five-fold ministers and deacons. Most churches today have departed from that model.

I wrote a teaching article a week ago on the website titled: “A True Disciple.” If you’ve not read it you should do so now because the rest of this blog will deal with what the Lord showed me this morning from Acts 14 regarding the early Church and what Paul and his friends and disciples accomplished. So it’s very, very important that you understand Jesus’ definition of a true disciple.

This is important because it goes to the very foundation of what every true church should be doing—the Great Commission which is stated clearly in Matthew 28:18-20. Jesus is the Head of the Church and He is supposed to be your Lord as well as your Savior. He has commanded us to: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them … teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”

I believe if you are honest you will admit that few churches are doing this—they’re certainly not “making disciples.” A disciple is a disciplined one, especially where the Word and prayer are concerned. A disciple comes to know the truth and is thus “free” by study and meditation in the Word and Jesus’ commands.

Now if the early Church functioned under Five-fold authority and was governed by the Apostles then why should the Church today be any different? Should we not see all five offices that Jesus established and Paul wrote about in Ephesians 4 functioning together in the churches today? We should but we don’t. Instead we see various Ishmaels and Ishmael models on display.

Notice what the Lord showed me this morning from Acts 14:21-23 regarding the Apostle Paul and those who worked with him as missionaries or apostles—“sent ones”:

They preached the gospel in every city (v. 21). That means they preached the genuine gospel and not some “campmeeting” type perverted gospel designed after the flesh of Ishmael to bring in funds so they can continue this abomination and try to make this Ishmael “live before thee.” These Balaam Boys as I call them (though many are girls as well) try to make foolish Christians who aren’t disciples give them money by claiming that they speak for God which is contrary to Scripture—Ishmael, like the “strange fire” offered by Aaron’s sons before the Lord, can never “live” in the sight of the Lord—He established the Church and He designed it to function through leadership as we will see later. There are so many false gospels being preached in the world today—many more than churches who preach the true gospel.

As a result of preaching and teaching the doctrine of the Apostles they “made many disciples” (v.21). That is why Paul was often in a city for over a year preaching and teaching—it takes time to develop a disciple. Just because you get saved doesn’t make you a disciple—you need to be trained and established in the Word and the apostle’s doctrine (cf. Acts 2:42). You need to be taught how to flow in the Holy Spirit and how to pray effectively. It takes a lot of time and teaching to become a real disciple. That’s why we need genuine training centres today to teach and train disciples for Five-fold ministry.

Through this discipleship they were able to “strengthen the souls of the disciples” (v. 22).

They were used by the Spirit to “encourage them to continue in the faith” (v.22)

“Saying that through many tribulations we must enter the Kingdom of God” (v. 22). Part of encouragement is the truth that I’ve preached many times for decades—“Jesus never said it would be easy. He’s got work to be done and He’s looking for true disciples to accomplish that work but He never said it was going to be easy. He didn’t have an easy life—he was beaten nearly to death and then had to get up and go to the Cross to suffer in the sun and “be lifted up” to fulfill the Scriptures.

They “appointed elders for them in every church.” God works through and by leadership. Jesus established the Church and left it in the hands of the 12 apostles as leaders who “ruled and reigned” spiritually in the place of Jesus as His representatives on the earth to build the Church that He had died for. But there were also prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers—the other four offices of the Five-fold ministry that Paul writes about in Ephesians 4.  And you will notice from Ephesians 4:11-16 that the true Church requires Five-fold ministry in order to “make disciples,” etc. that the Lord has called us to do in the Great Commission. Also notice that this did not “pass away after the original 12 apostles died” as we’ve heard for years. No, the Word plainly says, “until we all attain to the unity of the faith” so Five-fold ministry is required in each new generation in order to accomplish this task.

“Through prayer and fasting they committed them to the Lord in whom they had believed.” Every true church should be committed to fasting and prayer yet few are today. When we lived in Austin I was a member of the Austin Area Ministers Association. We’d meet for lunch once a week for a luncheon and have speaker. Ministers and their wives attended and a different church would host the even each month. This was good and it helped fellowship. This occurred on the first Tuesday of the month. The following Thursday one of the hotels in town had given us free of charge a suite that looked out over the City of Austin so we could pray for the city. Though hundreds always attended the luncheon on Tuesday the most I ever saw come to prayers on Thursday there were 7. I think that explains why the city of Austin is in the shape that it’s in.

In 2011 the Lord allowed us to go on Christian T.V. here in America for the first time. We flew to Florida and rented a car. As Eve, the kids and I were driving through the South the Holy Spirit spoke something to me that is indeed a simple revelation to understand. While driving I turned to Eve and said, “You can always tell when you’re driving in the South because every few blocks there’s a police car and a church. Here’s the question—with all of these churches in town, how come the devil is still in charge of this community?”

I believe the reason is obvious—and it’s because of something the Lord said to me in October, 1991, “The Church is not being led by the Holy Spirit—it’s being led by religious spirits.” Religious spirits will always get you or your church to erect an Ishmael because they know there can be no anointing for Ishmael and they’re afraid of the anointing. It’s also why the Holy Spirit told me in June, 1997, “Never judge a church or ministry by how big it is or how much money they have—you only judge it by the anointing.”

I want to encourage you today to be a true disciple and to follow the original Church model set up in the Book of Acts that Paul followed.

RESTORATION


RESTORATION

 

God is the God of restoration—we see it throughout the Scriptures and we’ve seen it in our own lives in both the spiritual and material realm. We’ve had millions of dollars in cash and assets stolen from us by the enemy over our lives but God is restoring to us and He will restore to you as well. How do I know? Because He is obligated to do so by covenant.

As you might imagine, we get many, many emails, letters and phone calls each day from all over the world—people, especially Christians, are under attack and often they need spiritual guidance on what to do because they are perplexed. Probably the biggest area we hear from people about is that they need deliverance and almost always one of the areas where they need deliverance is in the area of financial blessings. They hear and sometimes “see” on the Balaam Television Network all the talk about “prosperity” and yet they don’t see it in their own lives even if they’ve been so foolish as to “sow a seed” into that Balaam network.

Early this morning I was in the counsel of the Lord—He is concerned about this and His children’s perspective on financial as well as spiritual blessings. Interestingly, as is often the case, one of the Psalms for today emphatically deals with this problem so if you are among those who can’t seem to “sort out” why your financial blessings aren’t materializing, open your Bible to Psalm 126; it’s a short Psalm yet like all of the Word very powerful, especially when the Lord Himself explains it to you.

Notice carefully v. 1, “When …” and stop right there. Meditate on this word the Lord says; it will set you free from your lack of faith. He said, “When”; He didn’t say, “If!” That’s very important.

“When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.”

Why was it like a “dream?” Well, it’s similar to what we say all the time, “It was like a dream come true” and in this case it was because the LORD is the God of restoration and He will restore your inheritance “When.” Now you might ask me and you often do in emails, etc., “Brother Timmons, give me some prayer points, etc., so that I can get a job, income, a husband, etc.” Now unless the Lord shows me I can’t tell you “When” He will restore to you but He will. Remember, it’s our job to “walk by faith, not by sight” and to believe the Word—it’s His job to see that His word does not return void and He will uphold His end of the covenant if we will do our part. So STOP thinking about it! STOP talking about it! Your focus is wrong and that’s part of your problem.

When you were created God ordained certain “blessings” for you. The enemy wants to stop those blessings so that you don’t accomplish God’s will for your life. He wants to prove God a liar and make you bitter toward the Lord. But remember, Jesus is no liar and He said, “When I restore your fortunes …”

Now notice verse 2, “Then”—we go from “When” to “Then” when we see the manifestation into the physical realm from the spiritual realm. Remember like I wrote in Mysterious Secrets, "THE SPIRITUAL REALM DOMINATES THE PHYSICAL REALM" so regarding Daniel’s fasting and prayers—the enemy withstood the angel Gabriel for 3 whole weeks but the answer was sent by God the moment Daniel prayed. And your answer is on the way—just continue to believe and you can speed up the deliverance of the answer and your timing for “When” by fasting and praying a lot like Daniel did (see the “Three Steps to Receiving a Miracle” that the Lord gave me on our website). Remember, and this is the key, because the spiritual realm dominates the physical realm it requires the spiritual substances of faith, fasting and prayers to cause your blessings to manifest into the physical realm.

Now notice the last portion of verse 2, we have another “Then” and this is also an important “Then” because the Lord says it emphasizes why He is always faithful to restore our fortunes—it brings Him glory among the nations.

“Then they said among the nations, ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’” Other people in your community will notice all the blessings God is giving you and your family—they cannot help but notice and this glorifies the Lord. Now when other people recognize that the Lord “has done great things for them” that means it’s more than just a little thing—it’s extravagant—the blessings He has for you are according to the scriptures as follows in Ephesians 3:20, “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work with within us …”

Just think about that! The Lord will do “far more abundantly than you can ask or think” and that is why the world will take notice of your blessings and exclaim, “The Lord has done great things for them.”

Verse 3 shows how our attitude should be and that we should recognize that “The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad.” You need to always be grateful to the Lord for what He gives you. Most Christians, quite frankly, tend to be ungrateful—I prophesied this in a church in Helena, Montana, many years ago and my wife was there and she will tell you that they weren’t exactly overjoyed with the prophecy but what the Holy Spirit said, “This is what you do; you give me a laundry list in prayer of 10 items. I do #1, #2 and #3 right away and instead of thanking me you say, ‘What about #4-10?’” And isn’t that right? Isn’t that exactly what we do? Often we’re like Israel and begin to murmur and complain about why the Lord hasn’t done #4 through #10 which is not only ungrateful but in a way it is making us our own god because we want to tell the Lord not only what to do for us but also when to do it.

This is sinful—it's like we think Jesus is some bellhop in a luxury hotel who jumps at our beck and call. No, one thing I've learned about receiving from the Lord and I've preached it for 25 years, you don’t tell God how or when to do it—your part is to find the promise in the scriptures you are believing Him for, then pray it, fast and believe you have the answer when you pray—that is faith! So always remember to spend much time each day just thanking the Lord for all His marvelous blessings. Listen, if you got nothing the rest of your life you are blessed because the blessing of eternal life and the beauty of Heaven are so much better than anything this world has to offer.

Now in verse 4 the Psalmist once again implores the Lord, “Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negeb (Negev).” This is a metaphor that demonstrates God’s restoration in a time of dryness—in a desert experience. Desert experiences happen to us all but if we are wise we will use this time to “seek the Lord while He may be found.” It’s in times such as this that we grow the most spiritually if our attitude is correct.

Verse 5 gives us the fact that “Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!” And, again, like verse 1, the word is “shall” reap, not maybe. Yet the Lord is emphasizing the importance of sowing to the spirit by the Spirit. We should be mindful that we are still in “harvest time” as the Lord reminded me some years ago. Heaven can be populated with those we love IF we will “sow in tears” and intercede for them that they might be saved.

Verse 6, “He who goes out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.” Yes this applies materially but much more so spiritually. Remember, and Jesus Himself taught His disciples of which we are, that our true wealth and “blessings” are in Heaven and we will “reap” them when we get there IF we have sown in tears here on the earth. I pray that you will meditate on these verses and be blessed by them and the exposition that the Lord gave me for them.

Brother Timmons -
Like Kathy, I too, am most grateful for the myriads of undeserved blessings, peace, and protection day after day. Upon thinking of "restoration" it seems that truly "deliverance" is a must. It is a necessary key to really be free and, as you know, Brother Timmons, down here in our city we are endeavoring to use the book, Mysterious Secrets of the Dark Kingdom, which you wrote, coupled with much prayer as a means of a foundation of restoration.
We continue to pray for every door to open for you, and for the untold blessings of FATHER GOD to be showered upon you in great measure...we too, love you and your entire family very much.

Bro. T, Thank You, This is a great encouragement, I know that I am getting ready to cross over the Jordon. Several verse's in this chapter have been spoken to me plus I have the one that you spoke of the Lord providing a great blessing for me. I am very greatful for the blessings that the Lord has given me. I know I don't deserve not one of them. But He watches over His Word to perform it and I am His covenant daughter. Glory be to God Bro. T love & miss you!

THE INAUGURATION



 

 

 

Well the USA made it through the inauguration without the civil war starting though one can still see the "bubbles" forming in the lips of the liberals with their agenda of darkness and the greedy who have used Washington, D.C., as their personal piggy banks.

What will be the result? As you know we first commented on Facebook the day Donald Trump announced running for the office of President back in June, 2015, that he was God's choice. I went into my bedroom here in Montana and prayed and the Lord showed me that Mr. Trump was his choice and that he would be like a Cyrus in the hands of the Lord. However, I got the very real sense in my spirit at that time that his "time" would be limited to one term. I suppose we will see.

Time as we know it is growing shorter; the Lord has an agenda that He wants accomplished and as Daniel so wisely spoke: "Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings ... to the end that the living may know that the Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom he will and sets over it the lowliest of men."

As Christians and citizens of another planet and a spiritual kingdom ruled by God, we must not get so caught up in the world's agendas and even our own nation that we forget that Jesus has His own agenda and most of His followers have not learned to follow the Holy Spirit.

I want to encourage each of you to make it a priority this year to learn to follow the Holy Spirit. He never makes any mistakes and we have that same potential--the potential only Jesus walked in--to not make mistakes if we can learn to hear His voice no matter how strange or "dumb" it sounds to our carnal minds.

Toward that endeavor, let me share something that He said to me back in 1980 that will help you in this goal: The Spirit said, "Spend much time praying in the spirit and as you pray in the spirit you will walk in the spirit and spiritual things will become more real to you."

We hope you have a blessed 2017!

A Proper Foundation



A proper foundation

 

I’m sitting here this morning drinking my coffee with a few minutes to go before we start school. Some of you know that our family home schools our children.  Our little John is in 3rd grade but has been gifted by God with a very high IQ.  At 7 he reads at high school level.  Although he could easily do most of the work of a much higher grade than we have him at we have felt it important for him not to skip grades but to do all the work for each grade level so that he does not have any lack in his educational foundation.  However, we allow him to work as fast as he wants.  He does two grade levels a year and is on track to finish both 3rd and 4th this school year.  When he finishes his scheduled work for the day he studies anything he wants to.  He can discuss how stars are formed, the chemical makeup of Saturn’s moon Titan and other detailed facts regarding our solar system.  He can discuss the different times of the earth and what happened when, etc.  He is also a Bible scholar.  People we know from businesses in town will often engage him in conversation about scientific things because of his knowledge.  John gets their attention with his scientific knowledge and usually turns the conversation to Jesus.  He is being used as a vessel for the kingdom of God.

As we are sitting here getting ready for the day ahead John is longingly going through his sister’s 8th grade materials. He does this often and I let him have a taste of the deeper educational things because it excites him and encourages him to finish where he is so that he can reach higher to the next level. 

I could skip grades with him but I know at some point some foundational things would start to show up and would impede his academic growth.  By having him do the work he is not only building a very solid foundation but also learning discipline and good study habits which is a vehicle necessary to carry him down the academic road to his educational goals.

Let’s think about the things we have talked about in terms of our spiritual goals. God has called us all to be spiritually brilliant.  He wants us to shine forth as bright lights in His kingdom.  We are only limited by our own spiritual growth and determination.  Do you want to do great things in the Kingdom of God? Then just as little John has to have the proper foundation for his academic growth you have to have the proper foundation for spiritual growth.  When you try to take short cuts it never works.  It will come back one day to trip you up. 

The word of God is the spiritual foundation that you must be built on.  Some people build their spiritual houses on emotion, feelings and other shaky things.   It won’t work though.  The day will come when you won’t be able to feel Him in the situation or the circumstances, what are you going to do then? How many times have you heard someone say they are no longer a Christian because their pastor or some other Christian let them down?  Their foundation was built on men rather than the word of God. If your foundation is in the word of God then you know in your heart that He will never leave or forsake you, He will never fail you.  The enemy will always try to tear down your foundation and if it is built on the wrong thing I guarantee you he will be successful.  Only the Word of God has been established as the building material that can never fail.  Think about that!  If you are going to build a house you wouldn’t use marshmallows as the foundation would you?  It’s just as foolish to try to use anything other than the Word of God as your spiritual foundation.  Some may say the Word of God is your foundation but don’t be deceived if you do not spend consistent time in the Bible then it is not your building material.  Once a foundation is built you still need the discipline of constancy in the Word of God to keep everything strong and working as it should.

The Lord will let you grow as fast as you can handle – get into the Word of God, spend time in prayer and worship and you will grow leaps and bounds.  Your foundation will be a sure foundation, solid, unshakable.  That’s the kind of people that can weather the storms of life without damage and the kind of people God can use greatly.

 

We Love You

TOUCH A LIFE TODAY



Touch a Life Today

 

Many years ago the Lord taught me the importance and value of one single life to Him. He sent me to the Philippines—at my own expense—to minister to one, single woman—a twenty-two year old woman who was the daughter of some missionaries there on a small island. She was planning on marrying a man the Lord did not want her to marry; he was not a Christian. She was under a spell and I had to take her off that particular island to minister deliverance to her. As a result of that assignment I realized how important each of us is to the Lord. And isn’t that what we see in the Gospels—Jesus emphasizing leaving the 99 and going after the one?

Reach out to someone today; touch a life and change a life.

Sometimes God sends you to them; sometimes he sends them to you. A young man reached out to us over the internet for deliverance about 7 years ago. He lived overseas and I don’t remember how he learned about our ministry. He was in a dark place and he, too, was being pressured by the enemy to marry a woman the Lord did not want him to marry. His parents were complicent in that they wanted him to marry her. And although we’d never met any of them at the time, I knew that this woman was demonized and not the one God had for this young man. Today he is happily married to a woman the Lord chose for him, has a family and is involved in ministry.

Reach out to someone today; let God use you as a change agent in somebody else’s life.

About 30 years ago I was living in the Houston area and I picked up a copy of the Houston Chronicle one morning and read the story of a Dr. Irri—a medical doctor in Illinois who had become addicted to drugs. At the time the article was written he had been arrested and was sitting in the county jail awaiting sentencing. His wife, too, had become an addict. I felt compassion for this man so I reached out to him. I phoned the sheriff’s office in that county and got the information to write to him. I wrote a long letter explaining his need for Christ and Jesus’ ability to set him free from this problem and restore his promising life as a medical doctor.

Now the interesting thing about this was the Lord said nothing to me the whole time but as soon as I dropped the letter to him into the mail box outside the Spirit of the Lord came upon me and I knew that this was pleasing to the Lord.

We’re supposed to be like Jesus; therefore, we should be moved with compassion like Jesus was (and still is) for the lost and this sin-sick, crying, dying world. Let the Lord use you each day to touch somebody's life in an impactful way.

Dear pastor Timmons, Do you have an email where one can reach out to you. i recently started reading your Book on the Mysterious Secrets of the dark Kingdom and since then the Holy spirit has been waking me up at 2am to study the book( real studying, taking notes etc) and to read my Bible, pray and based on your advise on the book i also pray in tongues daily( still not up to 1 hour, but i have been slowly building up to 30mins). This has gone on now for 10 days every single day. i will like to find out more. kindly update an email( the church email will do as well). thank you

The Real League of Heroes



Working on some messages I will be ministering next week in Michigan.  I will be ministering on “The Real League of Heroes.” 

What’s your kryptonite?  It’s probably not what you think…  All Christians have the same kryptonite designed by the enemy to bring them down, make them powerless; it’s called, living a natural life – living like the world.  Think about it.  If you live a natural life the best you can hope for is to finish your life with the least damage and die of natural causes.

Heaven’s hero Jesus is looking for His league of heroes; Christians who refuse to live a natural life, but instead live the life of a spiritual super hero bought with the blood of the Hero of heroes, Jesus Christ.  Those refined in the furnace of affliction and infused with His DNA which is his DEVIL NEUTRALIZING ANOINTING to go about doing good and rescuing those who are broken and lost. 

If you live this supernatural life, walking in the DNA (anointing) of God you will not only storm the gates of hell as a mighty warrior but when you leave this life you will walk through the gates of Heaven as more than a conqueror – a hero under the command of the Hero of heroes…….  Next week we will learn how to do this……….

It's All About Balance



It’s all about balance

 

Have you noticed how many people and groups today seem to have really gotten goofy?  It’s like there is very little balance in many people today.  You have leftist  groups that think you are  inhuman if you don’t think it’s ok for a man to use the woman’s restroom or a thousand other things I could mention here; you have Christians who think you are going to Hell because you didn’t support Cruz.  Why do you think this is?  It’s because the world is out of balance….

There is a force (and we all know it’s demonic) in the world today trying to herd everyone into the same corral – to feed them the same agenda.  It used to be there was at least some common sense in the world but there seems to be very little of that for quite some time now. 

As a Christian we have no obligation to the world agenda or any agenda other than the agenda of the Lord Jesus Christ.  If you set your compass and try to get your bearings from the news or any other worldly group you are going to get blown off course by the storm that is raging in the world today.  The Bible tells us that in Him we have peace - in Him we have joy – it’s in Him that we have direction and purpose. 

One thing we tend to forget about is that in Him we also have balance.  Balance is important in the spirit just as it is in the natural.  When a ship is being loaded the weight has to be evenly distributed so that it will float correctly and not list to one side.  When a boat lists to one side it makes it more susceptible to sinking when storms come against it.

So what is spiritual balance?  First let’s talk about what spiritual balance is not.  It’s not letting the world dictate what is right – it’s not letting the world dictate what is important – it’s not letting the world view define what you believe.  True spiritual balance has nothing to do with the world but everything to do with you. 

We as three part beings have to take care of the physical body that we live in and our soul (emotional) part of us as well.  But many Christians tend to neglect the most important part of our being – our spirit, and non-Christians completely neglect it.  That’s why the world is so messed up.  We know how to take care of our physical bodies – we tend to give it more priority than any other part of our being even though it should have the least priority.  We tend to also give our soul – emotional aspect of our being a higher priority than we should.  I cannot tell you the number of people my husband and I have counseled or cast the devil out of because they let their emotions become the driving force in their life. Think about this statement, it can change your life; “Just because you feel something that does not make it true, that does not make it right.” Your soul is susceptible to lies and manipulation.   Your soul has a tremendous amount of exposure to the world and the world systems.  If you are not spending consistent time with the Lord through prayer, reading and meditating on the word of God and  sitting quietly before Him so that He can speak to you or worshiping Him  how are you going to trust what you feel?

Our spirit should have the number one priority in the three parts of our being.  Our spirit when trained through the word of God will know the difference between good and evil – right and wrong – God’s agenda and the world’s agenda.  God desires to speak to us, to lead and guide us through our spirit.  One of the major reasons many Christians are not able to hear from God is because they are out of balance; their spirit is not in charge in their life – their soul or flesh is…

Your spirit is anxious and willing to take the lead.  Your spirit knows the voice of God, knows the will of the Lord Jesus and knows how to follow the Holy Spirit.  Why don’t you sit down today and do a spiritual balance check up.  Take a sheet of paper and put three columns on it, spirit, soul, body.  Think about the things you do for each, the amount of time you spend and list it in the columns.  Under spirit put the average amount of time you spend in prayer, worship, the word, etc.  Under soul list the amount of time spent watching TV, socializing, listening to music other than godly music, and all the other things you do to entertain your soul.  Now think about your body, about the amount of time you spend feeding, bathing, exercising (ha-ha we can forget that one) joking of course. I think you will be shocked at the amount of time you spend in each of these areas and in the case of your spirit – the lack of time.

If you want to be more sensitive to the Lord you are going to have to make some adjustments to bring spiritual balance to your life.  But it is worth it. God created us to be in perfect balance with Him, to move and breathe and have our being in Him.  In that balance is Heaven on Earth.  This does not come through formulas or legalistic things; it comes through making the decision to give spiritual things priority in your life even if it means giving up certain friends, not watching TV as much, whatever the Holy Spirit convicts you of.  When you make that decision and follow through you will be amazed at how sensitive your spirit will become and how balanced your life will be.

Here are some thoughts from my husband JP Timmons: “The storm raging didn't bother Jesus; the waves were high and the wind was blowing fiercely but Jesus was walking on the water and He wasn't afraid. And the 12 were afraid until Jesus got into the boat with them and rebuked the wind and the storm. Then there was calm. If we'll let Jesus captain our ship we won't be afraid when the storms of life come against us.”

 

Blessings,

Love you,

Evelyn

Drama or the Still Small Voice?



Sometimes when we are listening for the thunder we miss the whisper…  Have you noticed how much of what goes on in the world today is full of drama?  Have you thought about why that is? If you think about it, one of the reasons is it is people’s way of trying to get your attention and get you to believe them.  This is the way the world functions but it is not the way God functions. He always tells the truth so He expects us to believe His word and to hear His voice. 

As you will probably recall when God wanted to talk with Elijah He did the following in 1 Kings 19:11-13,  11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: 12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. 13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, what doest thou here, Elijah?

God wasn’t in the drama, He wasn’t in the wind, wasn’t in the earthquake and wasn’t in the fire – he was in the still small voice.  It’s so important not to get caught up in all the drama around you because when you do it is easy to miss the still small voice.  God has many ways to speak to us such as an inward knowing, a dream or vision, an auditable voice, etc., but it’s easy to miss God if you are looking for Him to dramatically hit you over the head.

I can pick my husband’s voice out of a crowd of hundreds.  Why?  Because I have had many years of listening to him and am intimately familiar with his voice.  I can look at something that is written and most of the time can tell you if he wrote it.  Again, because of my familiarity with him and how he thinks.  The written Word of God has the same effect on us if we spend time in it and make it a part of our daily lives.  It causes us to become intimately familiar with God’s voice and His ways,  (the Bible says His sheep know his voice) so that when He wants to speak to us in various ways we will hear His voice.

Sometimes the ability to hear that still small voice is the difference between life and death.  One day many years ago I was sitting at home talking with a friend of mine.  We were not talking about spiritual things or doing anything spiritual, we were just chatting.  As I sat there a scene flashed very quickly before my eyes.  It wasn’t a long drawn out vision just a quick flash.  My middle son was about 7-8 I don’t remember exactly how old he was.  What I saw was him falling on a machete knife and killing himself.   The Lord was talking to me through Word of Wisdom (knowledge of the future).  It didn’t make sense in the natural.  We did not have such a knife and I couldn’t believe he would play with it if we did.  But I knew the voice of the Lord so I excused myself and went outside to check on my son.  Guess what I found? I found him playing in the yard with a machete that a little neighbor boy had gotten out of his garage!  That still small voice through a Word of Wisdom saved my sons life that day. 

We must learn to separate ourselves from the drama of the world and be sensitive to the voice of the Lord.  Why don’t you make a commitment today to have some quiet time everyday with the Lord.  Even if you have to stay up late, get up early or use your lunch hour at work – get away with the Lord, spend time in the Word and you will begin to hear that “Still small voice.”

 

I love you.

As He is......



Sometimes God requires more of you than others, or more of you at other times in your life.  Do not compare yourself to others, they are not walking the exact same path that you are and do not have the same future you have.  You are God’s craftsmanship.  He knows how to build you into exactly what and who He created you to be.  But God works step by step and that’s one of the reasons He requires faith.  We have to have faith as He is taking us through the process.  Not only faith in God but faith in His ability to take you down that path.  The Word of God tells us He is able to finish the work that He began in us.  If the devil cannot get you to doubt God, his next step is to get you to doubt your ability to receive from God.

Many people don’t want to work for maturity and a closer more intimate relationship with the Lord; they expect God to say something like, “Walla” and they will be immediately made mature and pretty close to a finished work.   But that is not Gods pattern nor His way.   All through out the Word you will see He works line upon line and precept upon precept, from step to step, faith to faith and from victory to victory. 

One of the reasons the Lord works in you the way he does is because your life is not just a bunch of circumstances and situations.  When God looks at you He has a master plan, a master blueprint.  In the finished plan you look incredibly like Jesus.  I once had a dream and in the dream I saw my husband sitting up on a hillside and I knew it was towards the end of his life.  I was walking toward him and kept looking because I couldn’t tell if it was him or Jesus.  The master plan of God is to conform us so that we look so much like Jesus that people will see Him in us.

The Holy Spirit brings instruction, correction and direction into our lives that will take us to that place of maturity where we become so much like Jesus that it’s hard to tell the difference.  The religious spirit will say, “Oh, I could never be like Jesus!”  It sounds good and even humble but it’s not.  If we disagree with the Word of God it does not make us humble – it makes us ignorant!  The word of God says in 1 John 4:17, “Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment because AS HE IS SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD.”   I have to confess to you that I have told the Lord on more than one occasion that this is the hardest scripture in the Word of God for me to believe. But I do believe it – I chose to believe it because it is the Word of God.

Jesus is perfection, and He has done everything needed for us to be conformed to that image.  When we were born again He deposited the seeds of His nature and character in us – He called it the fruit of the Spirit.  He gave us Himself, the living Word and the Holy Spirit to bring us to that place of holiness and intimacy with Him that is in our blueprint.  Now we have a part in this; we must work with the Lord.  We must lay aside the things that hinder us.  We must realize that our part is to be obedient to the Master builder, to be clay that is shapeable and moldable in His hands.  When we work with the plan and are quick to obey He can make us into a  vessel that He can pour His Son out of to a sick, sinful, dying world.

God will not make us obey Him.  Look at the children of Israel.  They wandered in the wilderness for 40 years and suffered many things that they did not have to and did not reach the promise.  Later the Lord said that He loathed that generation.  They resisted what God was trying to do in their lives.  We cannot do the same and expect any different results. 

Many circumstances and situations in your life today are an opportunity to work with the Holy Spirit to build you into the image you were created to be. I believe one of the reasons that people like Paul, Peter and others of that time could count it all joy when they went through trials and tribulations is because they understood that the Master builder was making something great out of them every step of the way and,  that no matter what the enemy threw at them they were being built and molded by the hand of God.

Are there areas of your life where you are resisting the will of God?  Ask the Holy Spirit to help you do a spiritual check up and find out if there is anything you need to let go of, anything, any attitude you need to change.  I look forward to seeing you on that hillside….

If we can help you let us know.

Blessings,

I love you

Evelyn Timmons
