This morning my wife Brenda and I were praying and she had an epiphany.
Epiphany = a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential meaning of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience.
Brenda has watched me struggle this past year as we've worked to build this communication system that supports the 1Church1Day (ORT) strategy. From the time the foundation approached me with the grant application (Feast of Tabernacles at the start of an actual Jubilee year .... what are the odds? They are God odds!), only to discover the seed monies were far short of what it would take a company in the US to build, to finding another company in India to build it, working to raise the extra monies necessary.... she has been working with me through this whole process day in and day out.
She has seen how uncomfortable and painful the process has grown over the last year too. These last few weeks have been really tough and we are not done.
I am stretched far beyond my natural abilities (technology, legal issues. language issues, financial responsibility and did I mention TECHNOLOGY issues?). Lately I've been laboring far into the night and waking long before the sun rises. I'm just uncomfortable, tired and truly relying upon God's grace to help. I know I can and will accomplish certian things but I'm just not always exactly sure as to how. I feel a tremendous weight of responsiblity for this vision I've (we've) carried so long as it is really not our vision as much as it belongs to our heavenly Father and He entrusted this to us.
It all began with a prophetic word God gave me in 1988 before we even knew there was an internet. In 1992 God gave me the plans for the communication system that would serve the time when the body would mobilize as an army to pray and recieve a harvest of souls. It's a day when the body would be connected as one. In 2008 our Lord visited me in my office and gave me the plans for teams of councils inspired by the 7 spheres/mountains.
Then Brenda had the ephiphany. She said I sounded like and was acting in some respects like a woman begining to give birth. She described how uncomfortable it got as the baby grew. Then as the last few weeks came the baby began to drop and wow... the pain, the labor, the work.
She said, where we are at right now in this project, with the testing, is like when the baby begins to crown.
I wanted to let you know what we’ve been up to and ask for your help. I believe we have some ground breaking technology that could be called “disruptive technology.” That’s technology that is ground breaking and in this case, disrupts Satan’s plans.
We have a proven Church mobilization strategy that unites churches, from Charismatic to Catholic and from Presbyterian to Pentecostal, to pray 24/7 in a city or region and connect it to leaders in the 7 spheres of society producing measurable reproducible results such you can see by clicking here. Part of what makes this system unique is that it moves the church from a reactionary stance into a mobilizing offensive condition prioritizing our heavenly Father’s will and plans over our needs.
In early 2016 a foundation gave us some seed monies in order to build a communication infrastructure that would support this powerful strategy. Starting next week we expect to be able to test a beta version. This system is called the 1Church1Day Community Prayer Transformation System. In just days I expect to have short introductory videos available to introduce it too. There is no other strategic proven system like this out there that connects prayer with leaders in the 7 mountains that positions the Church to dramatically increase its ability to transform their community.
I need some testers to download an app on their Iphone, Android Phone, Ipad or Tablet next week and run through a few exercises and provide some feedback.
For those who have prayed for the for the exposing of corruption I dare say our prayers are being answered. What many don't realize is this is just not political. Everyone is being tested. How do you respond or what will you do when truth and lies are exposed? How do you respond when your power or position is threatened? Will you resort to lies and compromise or will you respond with truth and humility?
Jesus gave us warning? He recognized the real threat of the collusion between the religious and political spirit. He said in Mark 18:15 to "take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the leaven of Herod." Remember that the Pharisees in collusion with Pilate and Herod crucified Jesus. The political spirit and the religious spirit have this in common. They fear losing power and influence as wealth and privilege come with power and influence.
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life was seen as a threat to both and that lead to an unholy alliance between two factions that were normally at odds with one another yet they colluded for a season when it suited their personal agendas. After Rome crucified Jesus it was only a few decades later when Rome destroyed Jerusalem and the temple worship (which at that time was held in "Herod's temple." Have you ever thought of this? Herod bought influence by helping the religious community who did not confront his sinful behavior so the Lord raised up John the Baptist. Sounds like the politically correct religious crowd today don't you think? Kind of reminds me of the whole 501c3 today).
In Luke 12:1-3 Jesus goes on to clearly define what He means when He speaks of the leaven of the Pharisees. He clearly calls it....
I'm fed up with the ignorance displayed by much of the Church regarding moral issues. The headlines from the article above illustrate what I mean. I blame ministers like myself in America for not doing a better job of fulfilling the great commission which was to "make disciples." (Matt 28:19)
Disciples are those who observe what Jesus taught even to the end of the age (Matt. 28:20). Most people don't even know what a Christian is. Christian means "Christ like." It does not mean you just believe! Hey James 2:19 says even demons believe and they tremble. Being a Christian means you MODEL what Jesus taught by the way you live His word, His teaching, His commands affect your life choices and actions.
John 1:1, Hebrews 10:7 and Psalm 40 teach us that Jesus was a reflection of God's word. He is the Word presented in both the new and old covenant. Hence, all of God's word is relevant and consistent.
Now to the issue of Kaine's insistence of him being a good Catholic and Hillary being a good Methodist. Catholics and Methodists are denominations of Christendom. The support for any policy or law contrary to God's word from one who claims to be a Christian is a blatant lie as it pertains to God's word. It's just not true and that lie is a load of crap. Crap is a biblical term translated 45 times in scripture with the English word "images" referring to idols. Idols are untruths that are sacrificed to and worshiped in place of the only true God. In some dictionaries and commentaries it is defined as "a shapeless pile of dung pellets." That my friends is crap.
In my library I have the Catechism of the Catholic Church which addresses the issue of abortion which is addressed when they teach on the 5th Commandment which is, "you shall not kill." It's what any good Catholic would study and model. This teaching is well founded in God's word to.
Those who call themselves Christian but do not hold this view are pseudo-Christians. False Christians. False also means it is a lie. The teaching they espouse and the belief they hold that motivates their actions misrepresents God's word and Christ. It is not Christlike hence it is not Christian. But today in my nation that is not considered politically correct.
But in the kingdom of God truth is esteemed higher than a lie or political correctness. As it says in Ephesians 4:15 loves speaks the truth too. Now, let's get back to the issue of life and murder addressed in the 5th Commandment.
The Hebrew word translated kill is more accurately translated murder which is the shedding of innocent blood. They teach that life is sacred and go on to address the proper application of self defense, intentional homicide, abortion, euthanasia and suicide. In precept 2270 it says "Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception." This teaching is a truth that is consistent with the teaching of John Wesley the founder of Methodism. But beyond these denominations there is ultimately God's word which is the final authority. So no Mr, Kaine you are not a good Catholic nor is this lie you live and espouse Christ like.
These are lies about God's word peddled for the sake of acquiring political power. I should mention that in these days in Mrs. Clinton's case, it apparently is part of the foundation of economic power as well. Pun intended!
God's word is clear. Abortion is a form of idolatry as the blood of the most defenseless is shed. Abortion is the sacrifice of innocent children on the altar of pleasure without responsibility as many of the abortions occur among those who have sex outside of marriage. We find God's thoughts toward this in the following scriptures. The scriptures also include a warning.
Many who claim to be Christian in my nation have an escapist mentality. They can't wait to get out of here. You know, beam me up Jesus! Because of that they tend to avoid getting involved in ...... this LIFE.
Jesus called us to be "salt and light." He commanded us to go into all the world and preach the gospel. He taught us to pray that His kingdom would manifest itself on earth.
One of the reasons there is so much darkness and corruption in politics is because so many who call themselves Christian's retreated from that arena. I want to challenge all who call themselves Christians to not retreat but rather engage in every sphere of society which includes politics; the governing of this nation which God put within our hands to steward. I applaud those who do and I admonish those (25 million DID NOT participate in the last election) who do not.
If there is an absence of light, it is the Church's (minister's) fault. I thought this Facebook post and my response would give you a little insight into how I practice applying scripture in making decisions as it pertains to civil government.
The Presidential Debate Framed the Post
Facebook post: I can't watch anymore tonight. I recorded it, so I can digest it in bits. This live fact check just might help me! 😳.
Tim: Just check the political persuasion of your fact checkers!
Her reply: Both of them morally disgust me...so for me, I'll just have to pick the least of the two evils. That is MY opinion on this Presidential race. I don't usually share anything on my political views, so this will be the extent of it.
Tim: I know! As A Christian I look at....
Tim will be in Detroit & Flint Michigan - October 21-23
Recently the chaplain serving the Detroit Police Department asked me to come and serve the Church in Detroit and Flint MI. Recently Flint's been in the news because of the water issue brought to the forefront again because Trump's visit and you will also see a few articles I've shared how Detroit has been listed as the most dangerous city in America three years in a row.
In fact, my host, Apostle Chappell just shared with me how another apostle's grandchildren had just been murdered and another police officer just died due to complications from a non-fatal gunshot wound. Their hands are full, their hearts are grieved, their resources are overwhelmed and they've asked for our help.
Pray with me that I hit the mark and God prepares the heart of a people to hear and respond to His word. No politician nor any political party can fix this. Their only hope is God's abiding presence and He is ushered in through His Church. Pray God protect them, provide the provision so that we might do all things well and that a supernatural unity and strength would come to build my Father's house of prayer for all nations.
Thank you for praying and giving.
Today marks the 15th year since 9/11. Most American's can remember exactly where they were the day the Twin Towers and the Pentagon were attacked by Islamic terrorists. Most have read or have heard Rabbi Jonathan Cahn's "The Harbinger" which provides a moving prophetic perspective of what God was doing not only in America but in the world.
As I began my personal devotions before the sun rose this morning I was contemplating this day not as an American, a veteran who defended and loves this nation, but as a Christian, a minister with a unique gift and call to see my Father's house of prayer for all nations built and His Church united and His body mobilized as the army of the Lord (Isa. 56:7, John 17:21, Ezk 37:1-11) because of Joel 2.
I was led to review many of the 9:11 scriptures which I'd like to share. When combined together they present a powerful message as to what our heavenly Father's will is not only for America but for the world?
One Decision & Two Experiences
Before I share the scriptures and what God said I'd like to remind you of God's ways. Remember when God delivered the children of Israel out of Egypt. God made one decision which affected people two different ways depending upon which camp you were in. The ones who rejected God and worshiped idols oppressed God's people perceived God's decision as judgment while the Israelite's perceived the same decision as deliverance.
So it is today. One decision by God yields two different experiences simultaneously depending upon which camp people choose to place themselves in. This is how a nation can experience "the worst of times and the best of times."
Let's take a look at what some 9:11 scriptures reveal.
I recently received an inquiry form from our website from an apostle. He had read my books and asked about examples of on going transformation. I wanted to share my reply:
Dear Apostle Gunter,
Thank you for your inquiry. I’m extremely happy to hear that you believe this strategy will serve you and the Church in Germany.
Tell me, which books have you read or what material (websites) have you been to?
It’s hard for me to say as to how things have continued in many places in that it relies upon those using this strategy to report to us what is happening. For example, a leader in the State of Kansas used ORT to mobilize 267 churches in 16 cities. They reported what occurred for the 1st year (quite miraculous I might add, part of their testimony is in my book Operation Rolling Thunder – Revised Edition). Part of the reason I did not hear is because some of the church leaders were offended by certain language (ie. Eph 4:7-11, miracles…). But I did not hear from them until I received a phone call last year where they reported how that network turned the tide in the election of a governor who was a Christian in the last 24 hours before the election.
By 2011 we’d seen leaders in 36 nations report using this strategy and they represented 10,000+ churches (conservative estimate). For our small team, it became to difficult to try to track. By 2012 I quit trying to keep up pursuing results and encouraging reports. Since then, we trust God to encourage them to do so and we report what they share when we can.
But, that is all changing as soon...
One of the things that mark God's spirit resting upon someone is their ability to lend their lips to the Lord such that they become His representative releasing His words on earth. Numbers 11:25 reveals what happens when God's spirit rests upon a person.
Then the Lord came down in the cloud, and spoke to him, and took of the Spirit that was upon him, and placed the same upon the seventy elders; and it happened, when the Spirit rested upon them, that they prophesied, although they never did so again.
The Hebrew word for prophesy in this scripture is "Naba." It means to speak, prophesy or sing under inspiration. To speak or sing under the influence of a spirit; to be a prophet.
You can recognize a mouthpiece for God by observing God's spirit resting upon a person. One of the signs is they prophesy.
Each of these men except for Moses only yielded themselves once. In the New Testament the Holy Spirit does an inward work and there is an outward (Spirit baptism, fully covers, comes and rests upon them) work. There are gifts with Him too enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11.
There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.
The gift of prophecy given by the Holy Spirit is for edification, exhortation and comfort (1 Corinthians 14:3). The office of prophet was a gift given by Jesus to work with four other gifts (Ephesians 4:7). It functions....
