ADOPTION, TUCKER, AND ELECTION MIRACLES

HOLY SPIRIT OF ADOPTION

 

I often receive God’s messages through a song. I’ll awaken with a little tune in my spirit and find myself humming it as I start my day. Little by little I become more aware of the tune and begin to dig out the words. “What is God trying to speak to me?” 

The day’s song was the Momma’s and the Papa’s 1968 version of “Dream a Little Dream of Me.” This song wove through my day as I watched an interview of a woman’s decision to adopt, and another who decided to foster. When I went to church I met a single woman who was deciding to foster. Below I share how God pieced a message together through interactions and His faithful Holy Spirit.  Step by step He leads us.

I watched an interview of  Amy Coney Barrett as she explained her family dynamics. She was pregnant with her fifth 5 and received a call from Haiti asking her to take a little boy that needed a home due to difficulties in his nation.

Amy put on her warm coat and took a walk in the cold winter, stopping to sit on a bench to discuss this idea with God. She had this thought – “Well God, life is hard and there is nothing better to spend my life on than raising children.” It deeply impacted me as I thought of this very accomplished woman, supreme court nominee, magna cum Laude from Notre Dame, wife and mother of seven.  Wow, now that’s a liberated woman. One we would all be happy to emulate.

The words, “life is hard, and there is nothing better to spend my life on than raising children“ just rang so true. That is a mother’s heart.  That is my heart. Maybe that’s your heart.

I also watched an interview of a young woman who decided to lay down her calling as a worship leader and became a foster mother. She was on a Zoom call talking about placing our Idols of calling on the alter to God and taking up His heart cry. For her that was fostering children.

This was all unfolding in me as I walked into church. A woman walked up to me and recognized me from an event we had both attended a year ago (Really, with a mask on too).

Long story short, she had wanted to adopt a child most of her life. She went to China as a missionary, then on to Hong Kong, no adoption. She realized she needed more stability so changed careers, became a teacher, picked up a second language to be bilingual and most recently purchased a two-bedroom condo and completed a foster care  program to start the process. And she was a single woman. All these people are NOT in ideal situations, but trusting. I was beginning to see a pattern. Now I was getting it. In this season of Esthers and Deborahs many of us are being prepared and repurposed to fulfill our hearts desire (our Dreams). 

With the probable end of abortion in America there will be more children to give homes to. And God is raising up “mothers in Israel” (Judges 5:7)

Esther was an orphan raised by her uncle and sovereignly prepared to become queen of a foreign nation, and at the right time, a spokeswoman for her people, the Jews. Perhaps this is a time you’ve been waiting for, to take the honorable place of raising children? Even again.

God is calling many of you, and your partners, to assist in the foster care and adoption of HIS children across our nation. Note: Mordecai- Esther 2:15.  Shamgar-Judges 5:6.  Barak- Judges 4:8-9

If you will dream with Him and ask He will make it happen. You will become the Mommas and Papas to dream with God for a generation. I believe communities of folks fostering and adopting kids will grow up and a new culture of life will bring rich rewards for those who hear this call. 

Even if you had ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers [or mothers]. 1 Corinthians 4:15

PUTTING DOWN TUCKER

Pam just learned dear friends were needing to put down their dog. The husband was out digging the grave as we talked. Our hearts went out immediately. This family is dear to us, and the dog is precious to them. It is a grace-filled animal with a sweet disposition, a companion willing to befriend all.

It made me remember putting down our grey schnauzer, Tucker. I called Tucker the Super Wonder Dog. He was a gentleman considerate of others, willing to obey and eager to please.

He could be relaxed and laid back or go into hyper-energetic mode. He would respond to sit, stay, come, up, down, roll over and more. He loved to play soccer with the kids. They would kick the ball to him and he would run it back to them pushing it with his nose.

When Tucker was about 8 years we got another schnauzer, this time black. Jack was a rascal of a dog always pushing the limits. In fun, I called Tucker the good dog and Jack “the other dog.” We loved them both. Tucker did his best to educate Jack but Jack always liked to bend the rules. Still, Tucker’s modeling sunk in.

Tucker had few flaws. For fun, now and then, he liked to flush the chickens. Still, he was near perfect as a composed lap dog or an excited run-about friend. We had plenty of experiences with him moving from Washington, then Tennessee and then Texas.

When Tucker was 12 he started to get sick. His energy flagged, his motivation dropped. He had a cancer. We prayed for our friend, cuddled and pet him, but his health deteriorated. He did not complain but was patient as always. It was obvious he was in his last days, at most he had a handful left.

It was evening but I knew we couldn’t wait longer. I took my rifle, turned on the porch light, and carried him to the back yard. I sat him down and he stood wobbly between my feet. I said, “Tucker, stand still.” He obediently responded. I shot him in the head. He fell still, but to my amazement his tail wagged vigorously, quicker than I have ever seen before. It lasted a couple seconds and he was gone.

The next morning, we dug a place for him in the back pasture. I cried watching Old Yeller. I did the same with Tucker. There were some lonely days afterwards. Then four days later I had a dream. God graced us with it to bring a beautiful closure. I paste it from my dream file below.

12/12/2016 DOGS GO TO HEAVEN

I was walking along a country road where there had been rain. Water was running swiftly on the side of the road in the ditch and culverts. I looked and saw our dog Tucker running very rapidly back and forth in the field. He was much quicker than he had been in real life. He ran like lightning as if he could never be tired. I called out, “Go, Tucker, go!” At one point I saw Tucker was thirsty and standing in the water. As he began to drink I called out, “Drink, Tucker, drink!”

I called Tucker to me and he ran to my side. I gave him a couple pats, then he zipped off again. I could tell he was having a blast!

REFLECTIONS: Tucker was sick and I put him down four days ago. We were sad, missing him. This was an encouragement and a reminder. “Dogs do go to heaven.” We should drink deeply of the living waters, Like Tucker!

 

ELECTION MIRACLES! 

 

10,000 rose from the dead in Michigan to cast their ballots! Just imagine how many were raised in the other 49 states. You wonder who they voted for.

Amazing/appalling accounts of voting “irregularities” are coming out. Pam and I have been seriously imploring God in prayer for Revelation and the “HIGHEST COURT’S” justice! We are praying that everything will be revealed in Light! For the sake of future generations of voters we must be assured this election has true integrity.

GOING BACK TO PENNSYLVANIA WITH THOMAS PAINE

Once again, we are taking a cold, hungry, exhausting stand in Pennsylvania. But what is the alternative? As Washington’s troops shivered at Valley Forge they knew the weight of Paine’s words.

“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated”

A PRAYER FOR THE WICKED MEDIA

God’s justice is coming to the god-like thrones of the media.“May ruin overtake them by surprise– may the net they hid entangle them, may they fall into the pit, to their ruin.” Ps 35:8.  Read Zech 5:1-4 to discover what happens to the thieving, lying media! 

A TITAL WAVE OF JUSTICE

Let all creation rejoice before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his faithfulness.Ps 98:13

FIRE IN A BOX

The most amazing invention to me is the internal combustion engine. What benefits the world has enjoyed by capturing fire in a box! We Christians sometimes have “FIRE” but how few have made productive energy with “IT.”

THE FEAR OF THE LORD: PROMISED BLESSINGS!

Have you ever pondered the wonderful benefits our loving Lord grants those who reverence Him? You may find dozens of delightful promises for those who fear the Lord. What comes to those who with heart and soul breath, “Hollowed by Thy name?” You’ll be encouraged to learn!

A CHALLENGE: Put a “check mark” by the blessings you have already enjoyed because of your reverence for God.

The LORD delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing love. (Ps 147:11)

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. (Prov 9:10)

The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them.  (Ps 34:7)

But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple  (Ps 5:7)

For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him (Ps 103:11)

What are ways you personally upgrade your reverent love and fear of the Lord?

WHAT WOULD “ONE NATION UNDER GOD” LOOK LIKE?

I had a show-stopping moment last week in a Men’s prayer group. I’ve thought of it daily since Cesar made this statement: “I’ve been wondering what “One Nation Under God’ looks like.” It slammed me, bowled me over, stupefied me!

I’ve pledged “One Nation Under God.” I’ve prayed for “One Nation Under God” but I have never taken moments to picture what “One Nation Under God” would look like!

I say it reverently and with startled amazement, “O my God! If a nation ever decided to come under God…what would be the outcome?” Imagine the dripping oil and wine, the milk and honey Heaven would rain on a nation under His covering!!!

What would happen if all the chicks in a nation came Under Wing? Safety, security, belonging, identity, purpose! It would mean a national rebirth of hope and vision, a golden-age of brotherhood. Under Heaven’s shielding umbrella and outpoured bounty what blessings might overtake that nation?

Do you find it easy to imagine what happens to a nation which abandons God? It a little harder, but try this, imagining what happens to a nation in whole-hearted devotion to the Lord of hosts.

I’m endeavoring to pray for one nation a day. I’ve taken up listening to the national anthems of the nations I pray for. Virtually all nations sing of heritage, virtues, aspirations of hope and oneness. Those aspirational longings can take quantum leaps for nations which come under God!

What would become of Algeria, Uzbekistan, Indonesia and Suriname if these nations decided to come under God? “Holy Smoke!”

I am one who believes that whole nations will come to Christ in these last days. They will be known as Sheep Nations. See Matthew 25: 31-46. Imagine the lavish blessings overflowing on those nations who reverence their Creator and live under His protection! They will enjoy His bountiful provisions! Yes, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD!”

DO YOU KNOW THE GOD-HONORING FOURTH VERSE OF OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM?

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

THE DAWN OF A NEW CHEMISTRY WITH GOD

“…then you will understand the fear of the LORD

and find the knowledge of God.”  Prov 2:5

A NIGHT MESSAGE

Last night in a dream I was in a restaurant with a man who was a distinguished chemist. Other scientists were joining us for a secret meeting. Amazing things were being discovered, creating awe. The man I was with pointed to another man entering  the room. He was extremely impressed with him as an astounding chemist. He said, “His name is actually Johnathan Dawntheus.”

Demitri Medeleev Father of the Periodic Table

INTERPRETING THE DREAM

Jonathan Dawntheus could be translated, YAHWEH HAS GIVEN THE DAWN OF A [RENEWED] KNOWLEDGE OF GOD TO US!

Incredible spiritual chemistry is being revealed! We use an expression; “There is a chemistry between them.” This is the chemistry between God and His people. We are beginning to see God as he really is through Biblical revelation and Spiritual experience! God is revealing Himself with relational chemistry breakthroughs.

FROM PARTIAL TO COMPLETE

Our knowledge of God has been fragmentary and dim. Now that is changing! We will nolong be partial and see through a distorted mirror. Face to face is coming with a new dawn! This is spiritual awakening.

As for me, I will be vindicated and will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.   Psalm 17:15

I’ve often prayed, “Dear God, let me know you as you really are, and not simply as I have conceived you!” Of course, we have no business trying to conceive God. He is the One who conceived us! Our Father is downloading, to those who seek him, the full disclosure of His face.

ARE YOU SENSING LIGHT ON THE HORIZON?

Recently the birds have been chirping at 5:15. They know the dawn is coming! We also are chirping in anticipation! Early in the morning, before the sun comes up, we may go to the tomb of our old theology and find a living Christ!

AREN’T YOU ANXIOUS FOR THE DAY!

“I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.”  Psalm 130:6

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO WAKE THE DAWN!

Awake, harp and lyre!

I will awaken the dawn. Psalm 108:2

Let your chirping be heard!

Theresa’s Miracle: Building Faith World-Wide! 

Two decades ago we were sharing on radio and TV shows the resurrection miracle of Jesus raising our daughter Theresa from the dead. Yesterday, for the first time in 20 years, I noticed half a million had viewed Sid Roth’s interview on youtube. It is gratifying to know this testimony has encouraged many others!

With Covid 19 in the news I thought it important to share a clip from Theresa’s book on Spiritual Warfare. “Call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.” Psalm 50:15

Thoughts on Spiritual Warfare

from Theresa: How God Orchestrated a Miracle

We named our first daughter Abundant Rose (Theresa Suzanne). I was mystified when I saw the paramedics roll her dead, gray body past us at the entrance to the ER. My heart’s impression, which I believed came from God, was that He would use Theresa Suzanne to win many to Jesus Christ. Her death at age two didn’t fit any of my concepts of how the Lord would use her life to bring folks into His kingdom.

Too often we assume that hardships and tragedies are always God’s will for us and should not be resisted. Sometimes, though, God permits the enemy of our souls to harass us in order to give us the opportunity to be overcomers–to overcome the enemy by exercising our faith. No way were we going to stand by passively while the enemy was dragging Theresa down to death. We were prepared to fight him tooth and claw, calling on the name of Him who is the Resurrection and the Life. Whatever the battle might cost us in exhaustion and frustration, we were determined to give it our best shot.

Jesus told us that Satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but He came to give us abundant life (John 10:10). On the sunniest, cheeriest day there is a real but unseen enemy who is working to corrupt our lives with guilt, fear, anxiety, and misery. It is hard for us to appreciate how utterly wicked this adversary is. He loves to inflict loss, sorrow, and death. We have never been instructed in Scripture to lie down and let this fiend trample on us, or to accept his malice as the blessing of God. On the contrary, we are told to resist him, standing firmly in our faith.

It would be a lie to give you the impression that we snapped our fingers, said a prayer and quoted a Scripture or two and then everything was hunky-dory. Our battle was intense, protracted, and excessively draining. There was a time when I became a limp rag, soiled and threadbare. But at that time, I felt the body of Christ come and pick me up by the armpits and sustain me. Even with this support, it took us literally months to recuperate from the battle for Theresa and to regain our spiritual and emotional strength. Spiritual warfare is real warfare, and it takes its toll just as physical warfare does. Certainly, we are “MORE THAN CONQUERORS” in Christ, but I sometimes wonder at the cavalier attitude some people have about fighting Satan. I wonder how much of the thick of the battle they have really experienced, or is it just bold talk?

Victory in spiritual warfare never comes easily, at little cost. It cost Jesus His very life. So let’s be realistic, count the cost, and give our Lord heartfelt thanks and praise for enabling us to fight on His side for righteousness and goodness. His victory in the decisive Battle of Calvary has assured our final triumph in the age-long war!

Read the entire book, “Theresa: How God Orchestrated a Miracle.”

Be encouraged!

Three Lost Things Recovered

 

THE TAPE MEASURE

We moved from one house to another and in the process I lost my brand new, 25 foot, Stanley tape measure. The new house was a fixer-upper. I really needed that tape! I looked high and low to find it, praying all along, “Lord, help me find my tape measure!”

I worked with a flimsy 10 foot measure, and kept praying.

After several weeks of looking, and praying, I dreamed I found the tape measure. I went to my office the next morning and there, in the middle of the desk, it sat! My secretary had no idea how it got there.

 

SUNGLASSES

 

 

When I was a junior in High School my parents bought me some wire rim prescription sunglasses. I used them about 25 years, and then lost them! I interrogated every family member. I looked everywhere,  many times. You never know – the seventh time you look in the glove box, they might be there. I prayed many times over several weeks for their recovery.

One Sunday morning I was about to leave for church. I thought, “I’m going to jump into the car and drive straight into the rising sun without my glasses.”

I got down on my knees by my bed and prayed, again, “Lord, you know how I need those glasses. I’ve had them a long time. They’re valuable to me. They help me see. Please restore my glasses to me!”

I went out the car and opened the door. There on the seat in plain sight were the sunglasses! I ran back into the house and asked my wife, “Pam, did you find my sunglasses?” She replied, “No, but last night I dreamed you found them.” No one in the family knew how they got there.

 

THE WALLET

 

Image result for old black wallet

I lost my wallet. Searching pockets in the closet, cleaning out the car, and even calling the business where I last remember having it, brought no results. I canceled the cards, ordered a new driver’s license, and prayed often.

A couple weeks after the loss I was getting up from bed and sensed that something fell right beside my foot. I bent down and picked up my wallet! Where it fell from, I have no idea.

In each story we are unaware of any human element in bringing back the lost item. I seriously believe the angels of God were at work! The three recovered items in my stories are parables.

 

The Lord would restore:

 

Proportion and proper fit

Ability to see dazzling things

Image result for old black wallet   Identity and wealth

 

“Ask and it will be given to you;

seek and you will find;

knock and the door will be opened to you.”  Matthew 7:7
