Greetings from Clarksburg, WV:
Note: The intensity of the Holy Spirit in our meetings is increasing dramatically. I am kidding Corinne as she is getting so anointed during times of ministry that her ears are actually turning red! We still have several meetings booked in colder climates. We leave tomorrow for a mountain-top camp meeting in S.E. Ohio, then on to a full week of meetings in N. WV. From there we begin our trek into the South East States, beginning with Huntville, AL. We are weathering very cold nights, with lots of frost, but so far no frozen pipes! We'll begin making our Southern swing in just the nick of time! Thanks for your prayers!
If you have been in any of our meetings over the past month or so, you would have recalled me telling of a recent vision that God gave me. During a very intense time of prayer, He showed me a vivid picture of a large piece of white, plastic pipe. This pipe, or better yet, tube, was about 36 inches in diameter. It was about 6-8 feet long. I could tell it was cut-out of a larger tube, as I could see rough saw marks on each end of the section that I was seeing. The thought that came to me as I saw this tube was that it was some type of sewer line.
As I peered inside the tube, I was astonished by what I saw. I've never seen demons before. I sure have cast out my share, but I've never actually seen one. However, inside that tube was the most ugly, hideous, demon being that one ever could imagine. It was about the size of a poodle, had four dog-like legs . It's features were grotesque to say the least! As I looked closer I observed that on each foot, there were very large, long, powerful claws. Each one was about the length of my fingers. Each of these claws were impaled into the side of the tube, and with them, the demon was hanging onto the side wall with all of his strength.
I sensed that this demon was to be flushed from the tube, and as I pushed down on it, I noted that it was unmovable due to its embedded claws. The more I shoved it, the more it resisted and I couldn't get it to move, even by the slightest inch. Finally I prayed and God sent a rush of His mighty River water, and the demon began to slide down the tube as God's strength flushed it away. As it went it screamed, "I can't leave, I've been in control for thousands of years!"
We are preaching messages based on the Kingdom of God. Corinne and I, along with many others, feel that this coming move of God is to be a "Kingdom Revival." In other words, instead of just enduring life on this earth until the Rapture takes place, we believe that the message of Jesus is to take the Land! We are sons of God! That means we have been born into Royalty. Jesus is the King of kings. He is not just the King of President Bush, or Queen Elizabeth, but He is the King over us, His younger Brothers and Sisters. We are the "kings" that Jesus is "King" over. Did you notice the case of the two words, "king" and King?" He is capital letter, "King" over we who are lower case, "kings." Get it?
What does this mean? It means that we, the Church of Jesus Christ are very important and powerful beings. Unfortunately, we are not fully living in this revelation. I guess that's part of our job, to keep preaching and teaching this important truth. Many today are not seeing a lot of victory in their lives. The pressures of life are very great and a vast toll of defeated Saints are walking the earth. It is like the more they push at the demon in the tube, the sooner they wear out in defeat and quit!
When asked about His Kingdom, when it will be established, Jesus said, "The Kingdom of God can't be detected by visible signs. You won't be able to say, 'Here it is!' or 'It's over there!' For the Kingdom of God is already among you." Luke 17: 20-22 (NLT). Most translations say that "The Kingdom of God is within you." And a few others actually say, "The Kingdom of God is in your grasp!" Now I like the thought of being able to grasp the Kingdom of God! A couple of weeks ago, in a meeting in New York State, as I was preaching some of this, one of the leaders of the group got up, walked behind me and came back with a huge, two handed, broad sword that someone had given their ministry. I was able to "grasp" that sword with both hands, and swing it powerfully. The sword was very heavy, and the damage that I could have done with a sword like that could actually lop off the heads of any demons that would be bold enough to approach me.
As the demon in the tube resisted me, he could never resist the power of God's River flushing through the tube. Therefore as we "grasp" onto the Kingdom of God, and our rightful place within it, no demon in hell can withstand us. We are powerful beings! God has given us the authority as kings to take complete charge of our Realms.
As we go to war, we will hear a certain sound. If you listen carefully, you too will hear it.... the sound of swirling water. It's time that you and I give the resisting demons in our lives a "swirly!" It's time that we give our enemy a "Royal Flush!"
