Dear Advancing Ones:
With the approach of one of the greatest spiritual harvests ever, God is providing revelation for reaping in the harvest fields. We must not fear the concept of multiplication and increase, nor the idea of reaping what God has given us to harvest. In a season of “tightening our belts” to do exploits, we must choose to be good stewards of what God has given to us, take appropriate risks and make our possessions available to God to do with them what He wants. Once we understand this, we are free to go forth into the harvest field that we are a part of and ask the Lord how we can best reap the harvest of that field. As faithful stewards, we will be given the vision and focus to overthrow anything that sets itself against the call of God on our life in our field.
Giving that Establishes an Altar of Worship!
Giving is a way of life for Pam and me. As a matter of fact, most people think I am motivated by prophecy because I am a prophet. However, what motivates me is giving. God has shown me the power of seedtime and harvest. The issue of giving is probably one of the most controversial topics in the body of Christ. Giving does not mean bringing a check or dollar to the church. Rather, giving is built around a covenant relationship that is linked around an altar of worship. Giving occurs when we recognize that our King is righteous and legitimate. We bless the Lord so that He will take His stand righteously on our behalf. Giving occurs when we worship. Giving occurs when we respond to authority with generosity and blessing. Giving occurs when we realize the lesser is blessed by the greater—that God is the greater King and we should want to give all to Him. Giving occurs when we do not hold back what we have been entrusted with by the Lord. After watching these services, you may be led to seed into this ministry with gladness. We pray over every gift sown here, and want to see you enter into the fullness of the blessings the Lord would choose to release at this time.
May You Flourish Like a Well-Watered Tree!
Psalm 1:3 says, “He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.” In this month of Shevat, winter begins to turn to spring in Israel, and the earliest blooms appear on some trees. The fifteenth day of this month is called Tu b’Shevat and is celebrated as the New Year for trees. In Hebrew culture, this is a time to give thanks for the abundance that the Lord has provided for the Land of Israel. We made this short Israel Prayer Garden video to help you enter into and honor the Lord’s provision of abundance. May Psalm 92:12-15a be your testimony: “The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing, to declare that the Lord is upright …”
