When Solomon finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the
burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the Lord filled the
temple. (2.Chr 7:1)
Last Wednesday at the International House of Prayer, I had a divine
appointment with someone I hadn't met previously and received a one-sentence
prophetic word that went through and through. One half was a repitition of
something I know, the other half more or less an answer to an 'unsaid
In any case, it brought me into a new dimension in my walk with the Lord. No
doubt also thanks to your prayers after my last post - THANK YOU! I started
interceding more and more for Mali and Saturday morning, as I came before the
Lord, His glory filled my apartment. I tried to read 2.Chr 7:1, when the Lord
consumed the burnt offering at the dedication of the Temple and filled it
with His glory, but couldn't read more than a few words because of His fire,
glory and power. It took me 45 min to read that one verse!!! I spent three
hours in the glory of God, losing all sense of time, so overwhelmed by His
presence I could barely get up. At church that night, I couldn't stand long
in worship before lying prostrate before Him again, needing help to get up
and get to the car after the service. Same thing Sunday, and Monday, and
today Tuesday. Yesterday afternoon it seemed His power and glory lifted a
bit, but only to return even stronger this morning, at home as well as at
school as we worship there. I've been doing deep intercession for Mali (West
Africa) where my heart is, wearing my Malian clothes, and crying out to God
to be transformed into the image of Christ, prepared for His service,
consumed by Him and passion for Him, not caring about anything else any more.
I've never had such a powerful visitation before, and it is still continuing.
I can't even write all of this without His power manifesting. And I want to
get even more desperate for Him, even more sold out to Him, even more like
Him, disappear so that His glory flows through me, so that His power flows
through me, for Him to be glorified, honored in the nations, for His kingdom
to come in all its power!
I pray that nothing of me will be left so that His will can be done through
my life! And I pray that all of you will get sooo hungry and desperate for
the Lord! How hungry are you for Him? How desperate are you for Him? Do you
need more? He loves the hungry and desperate.
Let me say again, if you can, COME TO KANSAS CITY! Females can stay with me,
males with Samuel my neighbor. God is here with revival power, changing lives
forever! There's a women's conference coming up from Nov 1-4.
Trying to address some practical things....
* Car - I'm trying to find someone who'll take it and maybe even pay a few
dollars, instead of me having to pay for its disposal.
* Provision - praise God! He doubled my money from 11 to 22$, allowing me to
pay my electricity bill and still have 2$ extra. Don't despise the little
things! I'm truly grateful for His provision that always comes just at the
right time with the right amount!
* Language classes - the French class starts next week, with about 3-5 people.
The German class might start later. I'm doing this for free, since I'm not
allowed to work, trusting God will move people's and students' hearts and
provide what I need.
* Visa - I've been trying to call to get the situation sorted out, but the
line's always occupied (not toll-free), and since it's long distance, I need
to get a phone-card again.
Lastly, pray for protection. The intercessors of our church have been alerted
that big ministries are targeted by terrorists because of our involvement with
Israel, our support of them, and WRC also has a property, planning to start a
church there some time in the future. Our church is one of those high-profile
churches (pastor Steve Gray just had a planned meeting with John Ashcroft,
which was cancelled due to new developments).
By the way, Steve's planned ministry trip to London, Paris, Frankfurt will
probably be postponed because God has told him to keep his post here in
Kansas City right now. Well, it increases my chances of joining that team,
and hopefully you in Europe coming to those meetings!
May the Lord bless you with all heavenly blessings in Christ Jesus, our
beautiful Lord, Savior and Friend!
