While we’re lifting Him up, I saw like … let’s say you go on a trip, you’re on the plane and you’re going to be going through the night, they hand out the blinders. I saw somebody’s eyes being opened up almost as if they took the blinders off, but they didn’t take the blinders off. He did. It was a sudden awakening, And it caused a paradigm shift, a shift in the way they thought it would be. And then it was like those blinders, when they came off, they could see things that… “Well, the Word says we will see, because He said, He’d show us the things that are to come … the days, the weeks, the months, and the years.

Is He faithful? Yes! God is faithful. He’s good. His mercies are new every day. He’s never changed. He’s still the same. His Word is always true. So I don’t know who that’s for, but I know you’ll know it because you’ll see it. It will be like an awakening to the things that He has been saying, and they shall become absolutely crystal clear to you.

Hallelujah! We believe to see, to know hallelujah.

Pastor Ray…

I saw this this morning. I was just looking through some things and this caught my attention, which I believe it would catch yours too. And the title is “The Greatest Move and Manifestation of the Spirit of God.” Kenneth Hagan, 1980. “So the greatest move and manifestation of the Spirit of God, and then the Holy Spirit began to speak through him and said, “you are right on the verge.” I don’t care if it was 1880, whenever it was, if the Holy Spirit said it, and I believe He did. “You’re right on the verge of the greatest move and manifestation of the Spirit of God that this world has ever seen. You’re right on the edge of it. And it’s like standing on the Creek bank about to jump in.”

This weekend might be a good time. Well, at least here in Minnesota.

“And if you give the more earnest heed unto the things which you have heard, not only those things that you’ve heard about faith and those things that you’ve heard about healing, but also those things that you’ve heard about the Holy Spirit and the things you’ve heard about angels and the things that you’ve heard about divine visitation. For remember, it was prophesied in Joel of old that in the last days, saith the Lord, I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh. And your young man shall see visions. And your old man will dream dreams. And upon My handmaidens, will I pour out My Spirit and they will prophecy.” So not only will it be that the young men will prophesy, but the young women will prophesy and the anointing and the outflow of the Spirit of God shall be great in amazing in those days for there shall be a visitation of angels.”

Ooh, I want to encourage us as members of the body that when we see something… you know, you’ve seen those signs maybe be by the airport. “If you see something, say something. If you see something in the realm of the spirit, say it! Because more than likely, it is for somebody else. It can be for you personally, of course.  I had a word through Pastor Mac in 1995. Iit’s in my Bible. And he said, “A lot of times you, you see things but you just sit on them.” So don’t do that. So when you see it… I just looked at that a few minutes ago. So when you see it, say it because there are many others that are looking to hear what He is saying. Anyway… Just one other paragraph.

“And so in these days there shall come a mighty manifestation of the Spirit and the work that God intended should be done in these last days. It shall be accomplished, for the time is short and things must be speeded up.”

Do you feel like time is speeding up? Wow.

“And you’ll learn much faster spiritual things than those of yesteryear. And you’ll develop much faster and it’ll be said of some, they just virtually matured overnight. And they shall go forth to speak in the name of the Lord because they understood the principle of faith. They’ll understand the principles of the kingdom and they’ll understand the laws of God and they’ll operate and minister in that area. And nothing will be hid from them. And though there are some right now, right here that have operated in a measure of these areas in times past, but maybe you’ve let it slip.”

This is the Holy Spirit saying it. Not me.

“They themselves, and maybe they’re in ministry or wherever they are in their lives. They’ve let it slip and they shall be re restored. Whatever that gifting was, it’ll be restored once again. They shall even be restored right now today. And the manifestation shall come and the glory of the Lord shall rest upon it. And rest upon thee and His glory shall be seen round about and the cloud of God will come and fill the house. And it will seem as though the whole building is filled with smoke, because you see the glory of God shall be in manifestation and great shall be the noise thereof. And praise and adoration that shall go up from His people. And it shall be noised abroad. And men from afar shall hear it. And men from afar shall hear of it. And men from afar shall come to behold it, for the Lord shall be in manifestation in those days, in all the ways that He ever manifested Himself both in the Old Covenant and the New Covenant plus the multiplying of the Spirit in the power of God and these days.”

That’s big. Okay. That is big. Just one final little paragraph.

“You see these are the last days and this is the end of time and what is done, it must be done now, like quickly. And it will be done. And the hearts of many will have cause to rejoice. So rejoice, be glad, praise the Lord and prepare your hearts and let Him prepare you for that, which He has prepared for you.”

Let Him do it right. He said He would.

“And so you shall walk in it. You shall run and you shall fly… literally spiritually speaking, and you shall enjoy the fullness of that, which is provided for you.”

Personally, what He’s prepared for each one of us personally, we’ll walk in it, we’ll run with it. We’ll rejoice as we go forward and all the things that were prepared for us separately and then together. As members of the body of Christ, we’ll walk in it. So I take this as a kind of a command … “walk in it.” Because if you’ll walk in it, you’ll run in it. And if you’re running in it, you’re going to fly, spiritually speaking. I want to fly. Woohoo.

Ministering spirits, angels. You can come on up.

I love what he said: “See something, say something.” I got the same thing a week ago! The Holy Ghost said that to me too. We were dropping someone off at the airport and He said, look at that sign… just what he said here. They’re not going to hear about it unless you say something. Right? And a word-of-faith people, we get a little leery about visions and… “I heard something. And I want to tell you what I saw…” We think that’s a little spooky, you know. But that’s in the Bible! I was just reading yesterday… I was talking to my husband about this and he said, “People could think you’re really strange if you share things that the Holy Ghost shows you.” And I said, “Okay, well, let’s go through the New Testament here. Peter was on the rooftop and he fell into a trance. Wooo! And he had a vision and down comes a blanket and there’s all these different animals.” If you were telling that to someone, you know, we think, that’s so strange. No! That’s God! God was giving him a message to prepare him for something. And then when that came to pass, he had to, again, share that message with the other believers who said, “Why are you preaching to these strange nations? Why are you preaching the message of Jesus to these strangers?” And he said, “Well, let me tell you what happened to me. I fell into a trance. I had a vision and this is what the Lord showed me.”

So it’s for a purpose. And think about Paul… every time he got up to share the Gospel, what did he say? I saw a light. I fell off my horse. I heard a voice. But we think, I can’t tell that person when I hear the Holy Ghost say “that person has a headache.” We’re afraid to say, “Hey, do you have a headache? I believe the Lord told me this.” We’re afraid to say that. But when we see something, when we see an angel and he gives us a message, share it! It’s supposed to encourage others.  You’re supposed to share the message. And why would He show you more things if  you’re going hold all the things that He has for you to share with others? He wants to bless you, but it’s usually to bless others. Because it builds their faith.

We love the Word. That Word is our foundation, but there’s so much more in God. and we really need to move into those places and believe for those things, because He’s so much more.

Pastor Ray…

At the end of this… this is from 1995 July. when you see things in the spirit and I show them to you all the time. That’s not just for me. That’s for the believers. I believe He is showing us … because He said he would… but the Spirit said I show them to you so that you can share them. And so that they’ll be able to benefit also. So begin flowing in that which I’ve called you to, saith God, and as you do, the anointing will be even greater.

That’s worth it. That’s worth it to seem strange. Because the anointing will be cranked up. And guess what? We’ll see more. Isn’t that what William Seymour did?

God wants to fellowship with us in such a way. I mean, we keep Him so low in our lives and He just wants to fellowship with us in such a wonderful way. So let’s just do that for a few minutes. I mean, when she started to pray to play that song, Jesus, I just felt the presence of God come right into the room. And I said, wow, “Jesus, you are here to minister to your people.” Thank you, Lord. We just worship you. We honor you today. We’re so glad that we’re your people, that you are our God. We’re so grateful that you call this out from the darkness, and you brought us into the light. And we worship you today with all of our hearts. We welcome you in any way you want to come. We welcome you. We welcome you into every part of our lives. We love you so much. And we’re just looking for you in everything and in every way, in every word. Thank you for opening our eyes and showing us who you are taking us into the deep places, wrapping us up in you… where we are hidden in Christ. So nothing by any means can harm us. Glory to God. Hidden in you in that secret place of the most high God. We love you. Thank you, Jesus. You are so glorious and wonderful. Hallelujah. You deserve the praise.

Before the time is up, I saw something. I just got this, this morning. Over all these years, I’ve collected book after book after book on prayer. So in my office, I have hundreds of books and all of them were on prayer. And so, you know, I can’t take all those books. I’d need a truck just for the books. But anyway, have you ever tried to lift a box of books? And so I was going through them, you know, on some like, “Oh, I have to have those.” Like Kenneth Hagin. I have to have certain ones. But then I also had a collection of Bibles. So I don’t know how many Bibles you can use, you know, but… “Oh, that’s a special one.”

But, I had a little revelation this morning. Cause there I have one Bible that there are colors. And so all of the blue colors in the Bible, they’re all about prayer. So there’s one book that’s more special than all of the hundreds and hundreds or even thousands of books that we could collect. There’s one Book and it’s the Bible. And the Bible tells us so much about prayer. But I’ll put it like this: about our connection to heaven, the Word of God is true and the Word of God is working all of the time. And you know, we sing that song, even though the Holy Spirit’s working. We don’t know it. We don’t see it. We don’t sense it. But He’s still working. The Word is working. And so, I’m over blessed, beyond blessed because I got to be here… [tearing up]

Whoever said that, you know, during COVID that’s when I really got a revelation of what I was called to do. And when. And the when was… right then… right now … in this place. So, you know, it wasn’t like I was so strong, and I was so this or that. The Holy Spirit, He just kept filling me and filling me and blessing us, my family, this family, this church, our family so much. And I know all that’s on the increase, and we just read about it. I read it this morning. We’re right on the verge, we’re right on the edge of the greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit that’s ever been seen before. And it is going to happen. We read it the other day and it’s not going to stop until Jesus comes back. So thank you so much for this morning. God bless each and every one of you. Sandy and I appreciate it. Love you. Thank you.
