Give Thanks to Multiple!

Mark 6:35-44 Late in the afternoon his disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. 36 Send the crowds away so they can go to the nearby farms and villages and buy something to eat.”
37 But Jesus said, “You feed them.”
“With what?” they asked. “We’d have to work for months to earn enough money to buy food for all these people!” 38 “How much bread do you have?” he asked. “Go and find out.”
They came back and reported, “We have five loaves of bread and two fish.”39 Then Jesus told the disciples to have the people sit down in groups on the green grass. 40 So they sat down in groups of fifty or a hundred. 41 Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he kept giving the bread to the disciples so they could distribute it to the people. He also divided the fish for everyone to share. 42 They all ate as much as they wanted, 43 and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftover bread and fish. 44 A total of 5,000 men and their families were fed.

When we see a need whether for others or ourselves, we will generally first go to the Lord for the request. Yet, we see Jesus answering and telling the disciples for them to feed the multitude. Why did Jesus respond this way? How did the disciples react?
Jesus was testing their hearts. HE is testing our hearts today. In these verses, we see a need for food. But in the spiritual realm, these verses can mean many things. We tend to always look at the natural realm. We tend to look at the physical. We tend to look at the negative. We tend to look at what we do not have rather than what we have. We tend to look at the impossible rather than that all things are possible with God. We tend to complain rather than to thank God.

The disciples responded, "With what!" They were complaining to God. They were with the Son of God. They are hearing HIM with great authority. They are seeing HIS other miracles and yet they had asked HIM with doubt. Many Christians today do the same thing. We can possess spiritual gifts that are supernatural. We may have witnessed and experienced miracles and wonders, yet, we could still doubt and complain. This is why many of us are still stuck because of our ungratefulness.

The disciples could not see what God could do but rather they saw the giant or mountain in front of them. They saw the multitudes and said to themselves, how can we feed them. They did not have enough food or money to provide for such a multitude.

Jesus then shows us how to multiple and overcome our fear, giants, or mountain. It does not matter how small we are in possession of something. God only needs a seed to produce a harvest. HE needs a person to humble himself. The breaking of bread can represent brokenness which is a sign of humility. Only pride looks at the negative. We must humble ourselves and just start to thank HIM. Only in Thanksgiving will there be multiplication. Many are struggling because many continue to complain rather than thanking HIM.

Psalm 50:23 But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me.
If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.”

This is not only about food or money. This is about everything else. If you want health, start thanking HIM that you were given life rather than complaining about your pain and why you were born. If you want more food, start thanking HIM for what you have rather than complaining about what you do not have. If you want to be able to get along with your family members, start thanking HIM for your husband and children rather than regretting you married your spouses or asking why your children are problem makers. If you want this country to go on the right path, start thanking God for such a blessed country HE has placed us in rather than complaining and grumbling about our secular leaders and policy. The problem is maybe the complainer and God is trying to get your attention.

If you desire peace, love, patience, and joy, start thanking HIM for what you already have whether you are in lack or abundance. Start thanking HIM for life and that your names are written in the book of Life. If your names are written in the book of Life, shouldn't that be enough if you do not receive anything else in life? Then you will truly experience abundant life. May your cups overflow with HIS Life and blessings.

Glory to HIM

We need to reach our spiritual promise land!

Each Christian must discern where they are spiritually. We can read the book of Exodus and the story of Moses with God's people which spiritually describes the whole plan of salvation. Are you still in spiritual Goshen? Are you in your spiritual wilderness? Are you in the spiritual promise land? Our salvation must come to its completion. Where are most of God's people today? It is God's desire that we all make it to our spiritual promise land. The promise land is where we flow with the Holy Spirit in milk and honey. It is a spiritual land of our inheritance. It is a place and time in which we will be experiencing millennium kingdom with greater miracles and works. It is a place and time in which we will no longer be striving to do God's work nor our personal work with our own strength. It is a place and time where we are in HIS Joy, Peace, Love, and Rest on a much greater level and reaching the fullness of God in us.
Goshen is the fertile land of Egypt. It is where Jacob and his family were sent during the Great Famine. God used Egypt to provide for HIS people. Spiritual Egypt represent the world we are living in. At that time, Egypt was a great power. It was affluent in wealth and possessed many resources. Even though the Western world may consider itself a Christian nation, it is still spiritual Egypt. Many Christians think they are influencing their politics, neighborhoods, culture, traditions, sports, and entertainment, but in reality, spiritual Egypt is controlling and influencing modern day Christians. We are the ones who are really luke warm and we are the ones slaves to the system of the world.
Whether we live in America or other countries, we may be in our spiritual Goshen. Many are striving in their own strength to make ends meet. They are striving in their own strength to find joy and peace within themselves and their families. Even for those in ministry, they are doing ministry through their own strength and thus many shut down or fail. If some are even allowed to continue, they are spiritually tired and their belief has become more of a formality. Many in Goshen are crying out to God for help. Although, many know the promises of God, such promises are not a reality in their lives for they are slaves to spiritual Egypt.
In Exodus, God's people were slaves to Egypt. They were slaves forced to make bricks to build Egypt great monuments. Today, many Christians are spiritual slaves to modern day spiritual Egypt. We, without realizing, are forced to work as the world. We are led to borrow as the world and become slaves to banks. We are then made slaves to entertainment, media, and politics. Most of our lives are spent hours either working or on entertainment which can be sports, Hollywood, or the news. Many Christians contribute to building great monuments of today's civilization. Working is not a bad thing. A little entertainment is not a bad thing but when we put work and entertainment over God, then we are nothing but slaves to this world.
Even as Christians, many realize they are not finding their Rest in God. When such people find God on a higher level, they come to realize, there will be a cost to truly following HIM. In fact, the Devil will leave you alone when you do not chase after God. When you are only but a Sunday Christian whose prayer life is only over your dinner meal, one who barely reads your bible, and your heart is for other things like entertainment, new, politics, etc, the devil leaves you alone to wither away. When you are deceived chasing after nonsense, the devil will leave you alone to face your own judgment. Many are withering away without even realizing it.
But once you are determine to know God more, the devil will increase your burdens. The devil will make your life more difficult. The question still remains, will you press hard to move forward to know God more or will you draw or shrink back and return to your old ways? You may have to choose between your career/business or God. You may have to choose between spending more time with God or the demands of your religious spouse and children. You may have to choose between your friends or God. You may have to choose between sitting on the couch or going to church.
Ex 5:19 The Israelite foremen could see that they were in serious trouble when they were told, “You must not reduce the number of bricks you make each day.” 20 As they left Pharaoh’s court, they confronted Moses and Aaron, who were waiting outside for them. 21 The foremen said to them, “May the Lord judge and punish you for making us stink before Pharaoh and his officials. You have put a sword into their hands, an excuse to kill us!”
In the land of Goshen, many became angry with Moses. When they got angry with Moses, they were getting angry at God. But God did not judge or punished them. We can see many Christians who are sinning but who have not yet been judged or punished? Why? It is because many are still in spiritual Goshen. Spiritual Goshen represents baby Christians. Moreover, it is God's last option or choice to bring severe judgment. His nature is to give mercy and grace.
God did not punish HIS people while they were in Goshen as they had come against HIM as they had come against Moses. Just because God has not judged you or disciplined you does not mean HE will not if you continue in your sins. HE desires us to repent and follow HIM.
It is when God takes us into our spiritual wilderness to teach us obedience, this is the place where God will punish or judge HIS people. The spiritual wilderness is a much more difficult place than the burdens of the world. Many are having a hard time getting broke by the world because of their bad choices but getting broken by God is another matter.
I hope God leads you to a good mentor like Moses to help you through Goshen and the wilderness to take you into the spiritual promise land.
Glory to God

Mere Brats

Exodus 3:9 (NLT) Look! The cry of the people of Israel has reached me, and I have seen how harshly the Egyptians abuse them.
Psalm 18:6 (NLT) But in my distress I cried out to the Lord; yes, I prayed to my God for help.He heard me from his sanctuary; my cry to him reached his ears.
Psalm 141:1-2 Lord, I call upon You; hasten to me. Give ear to my voice when I cry to You. 2 Let my prayer be set forth as incense before You, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
Revelation 8:3-5 Then another angel with a gold incense burner came and stood at the altar. And a great amount of incense was given to him to mix with the prayers of God’s people as an offering on the gold altar before the throne. 4 The smoke of the incense, mixed with the prayers of God’s holy people, ascended up to God from the altar where the angel had poured them out. 5 Then the angel filled the incense burner with fire from the altar and threw it down upon the earth; and thunder crashed, lightning flashed, and there was a terrible earthquake.
When the burdens of the world become difficult and we are oppressed by the enemy, what must we do? We must cry out to the Lord. Crying out to the Lord is not a 10 second prayer over a meal. Crying out to the Lord is not telling everyone else to pray for you while you sit in self pity watching TV and eating out of depression. This is what religious people do.
Soldiers of prayer must be like John the Baptist who wore a camel's woven coat. When a crisis is before us, the true sons of God will begin to pray. Their life is disciplined prayer. The camel has very callous or hardened knees. The camel's coat that he wore represented a man of prayer. He was a man of prayer who prayed hours a day and spent time with God. He was one who cried out to the KING for the sake of God's people.
We must become trained disciplined prayer warriors which means you can at least sit with your eyes closed praying in the spirit for one or more hours daily. The Roman army drilled once a day. They would march 20 miles once a month. Their life was a soldier. They were willing to drill once a day, march 20 miles in heavy gear, and die for their Caesar. They were willing to die for a mere mortal man. We serve a GREAT KING, we serve a GREAT GOD but why are so many Christians lazy and not even willing to give God one hour a day in prayer? Why is it we say we will give our lives to HIM but our actions are that we give our lives to Caesar instead? Why are so many Christians willing to obey Caesar rather than God?  It is because many Christians are mere brats and many do not honor HIM. But serving Caesar (world), they choose to honor a man more than God since Caesar is giving them the sports, coliseum, entertainment, money, and glory of life.
Matt 15:7-9: You pretenders (hypocrites)! Admirably and truly did Isaiah prophesy of you when he said:8 These people draw near Me with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, but their hearts hold off and are far away from Me.9 Uselessly do they worship Me, for they teach as doctrines the commands of men.
If we want our prayers answered, then they must reach the throne. They must reach HIS Ears. Our lives must be fully surrendered to HIM. We must be a people disciplined, repenting, cleansed, dedicated and committed, filled with HIS Love and Spirit. Only then, as it is mixed with incense will then the prayers be answered as the angel throws the filled incense burner with fire from HIS altar to the earth. HE answers with FIRE.

Why do we keep making the same mistakes?

Why do so many Christians continue to make the same mistake, continue to encounter the same issues, go back to the same bondage or addictions, seeing but never perceiving, and hearing but never understanding? Why are so many stuck and not moving forward growing in Christ, growing in HIS Grace to move from glory to glory? Rather, many Christians define themselves by time (I been a Christian for decades) but nothing has changed except they have gotten old. Church has been a formality. Walking the Christian life has been going to church on Sundays, perhaps some Wednesday and then falling away from attending. Then after some time, many return out of guilt but can never stay on fire. The fire or first love has faded away. Why? We must come to a fearful realization that our current physical manifestation of our relationship with HIM reflects whether we are falling away or getting stronger in HIM. Our natural and physical condition reflects either we are facing in the direction of heaven or facing hell. But rather than facing the reality of our spiritual condition, we deceive ourselves to think we are the seed of Abraham when many do not act like children of God.

John 8:31-33 Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. 32 And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”33 “But we are descendants of Abraham,” they said. “We have never been slaves to anyone. What do you mean, ‘You will be set free’?”

The Pharisees thought they were free. Many Christians today think they are free but they are not. Freedom in Christ is not a theory. Spiritual Freedom is reality and such freedom must be manifested physically and naturally if we are truly spiritually free. But the Pharisees were full of wickedness. Pharisees were full of knowledge of the Word. They tithed and fasted faithfully. But they were full of greed, covet, lust, lack of love, and etc. They were not truly following God. They were following their sins and Jesus said since they followed their sins and were slaves to sin, their true father was the DEVIL! But in their minds, they truly thought they were serving God and were heaven bound. This is the case with many Christians. We cannot continue to serve sin and think heaven will be guaranteed. Why do so many Christians continue to call Jesus Lord when they continue in their sins?

I asked the Lord last week. Why are so many Christians after teaching and preaching to them continue to ask the same questions? Why do they continue to make the same mistakes? Why do they continue in their sins never overcoming, never finding breakthrough? Why are they so lacking in faith? Why seeing but never perceiving, hearing but never understanding? Even in our church, we have people who continue to fail in full obedience to the Lord.

The Lord said it is because they have NO FOUNDATION. They are trying to build the temple of God which is in their hearts without a foundation. Many have been Christians for years and many have knowledge but they believe those two qualify them for the higher works or anointing. But frustration meets them as there is no foundation.

Luke 6:46-49 NLT “So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say? 47 I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it. 48 It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built. 49 But anyone who hears and doesn’t obey is like a person who builds a house without a foundation. When the floods sweep down against that house, it will collapse into a heap of ruins.”

1 Peter 2:1-3 EXB So then, rid yourselves of all evil, all ·lying [deceit], hypocrisy, ·jealousy [envy], and ·evil speech [slander; C all traits that destroy relationships; Rom. 13:13; Eph. 4:25–32; Col. 3:8]. 2 As newborn babies want milk, you should want the ·pure [sincere; unadulterated] and ·simple [or spiritual] ·teaching [L milk; C probably referring to the word of God; see 1:23–25]. By it you can ·mature [grow; reach maturity] in your salvation, 3 because you have already ·examined and seen [L tasted] how good the Lord is [Ps. 34:8].

Those who have no foundation are baby Christians who try to act and do what mature Christians are called to do. If we attempt to build a home, we cannot start with the roof. But many do not want to start at the foundation. They want show themselves approve by starting at the top rather than the bottom. The foundation is boring to them. The foundation is but a slab and looks gray and flat. We are the Temple or House of God and it must be completed in us so that God may fully dwell in us. There must be no idols and there must be proper foundation and construction.

I teach my people to go back to basics. It does not matter how long they have been a Christian. I tell them to pray, read, worship, and fully obey your pastor each day and spend some quality time with God. But some without foundation and their hearts full of idols wants to see visions/dreams, they want to prophecy, they want to evangelize, they want to perform miracles, and they want to preach. The basics in reading, praying, worship, and fully obeying your pastor is not an easy thing to do especially if God is requiring them to do it for years before God uses them.

In Luke 6;46,  “So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say?" Does Jesus have to literally speak to you and give you direct instructions for you to obey HIM? HE is speaking to many of you through HIS servants and pastors and many are not fully obeying their pastors. How can God test you approve to obey HIM if you cannot obey your pastors or other authorities. How can you continue to slander your secular leaders and call yourselves to be followers of Jesus Christ? Jesus said whether the governments are for good or bad, they are HIS SERVANTS and HIS appointed. If you continue to slander your governments and leaders, you are touching HIS Authority. You are actually slandering God. This has made many Christians stuck in their walk with God as they do not know how to obey and submit in the elementary authorities of this world. Thus it is manifested as they are revilers to their parents, teachers, pastors, governments, and etc.

Romans 13:1-5 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. 2 So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. 3 For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you. 4 The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. 5 So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment, but also to keep a clear conscience.

It does not matter whether you have been a Christian for one year or fifty years. If you are full of envy, jealousy, and quarreling, you are still carnal and babies. Humble yourselves and build your foundation. It is alright to start over. In fact, you must start over.

"As newborn babies want milk, you should want the ·pure [sincere; unadulterated] and ·simple [or spiritual] ·teaching [L milk; C probably referring to the word of God; see 1:23–25]. By it you can ·mature [grow; reach maturity] in your salvation,"

Humble yourselves and go back to the pure simple teachings of milk. By it you can grow to maturity. Go back to basics of reading, praying and worship and ask for spirit of obedience. If you do not grow properly by being fed properly, then you will grow defectively and spiritually deformed and as Jesus said to the Pharisees, they were but sons of the devil as their characteristics were sinful, carnal, greed, fighting, addictions, hate, anger, short tempered, lust, coveting, jealousy, coward, lack of love, lack of faith, and such things my friends will NOT inherit the Kingdom of God.

May we all humble ourselves and ask for a spirit of obedience to fully yield to God's Spirit.

Glory to God for HIS Mercy

The Holy Fire Ministry is the End time ministry for these last days

Luke 1:13-17 But the angel said, “Don’t be afraid, Zechariah! God has heard your prayer. Your wife, Elizabeth, will give you a son, and you are to name him John. 14 You will have great joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth, 15 for he will be great in the eyes of the Lord. He must never touch wine or other alcoholic drinks. He will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even before his birth. 16 And he will turn many Israelites to the Lord their God. 17 He will be a man with the spirit and power of Elijah. He will prepare the people for the coming of the Lord. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and he will cause those who are rebellious to accept the wisdom of the godly.

Matt 3:1-4 In those days John the Baptist came to the Judean wilderness and began preaching. His message was, 2 “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.[a]” 3 The prophet Isaiah was speaking about John when he said,

“He is a voice shouting in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord’s coming!
    Clear the road for him!’”[b]
4 John’s clothes were woven from coarse camel hair, and he wore a leather belt around his waist. For food he ate locusts and wild honey.

Before the birth of our Lord Jesus, God had sent someone to prepare the Way. Scripture tells us in Malachi chapter 4 that the prophet Elijah will be sent. Therefore, many of God's people expected the real Elijah to come. But God had sent John the Baptist with the spirit and power of Elijah. Since the majority of God's people were not able to discern the spirit of the message, many ended up rejecting their Messiah during the first coming. Will history repeat?

Many are waiting for the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Many are being taught the two witnesses described in the book of revelation to be the real Moses or Elijah to come. Some say perhaps, Moses and Enoch are the two witnesses.

Regardless, for HIS Second Coming, someone must prepare the Way. God is calling HIS Church or Bride to prepare the Way. But not all are the Bride as many are still infants and babes on milk. Many are still spiritually blind and deaf. A baby cannot get married nor does a baby have the ability or capacity to be married. A baby must grow to maturity. A person who just gets saved is but an infant. Even if someone has been a Christian for decades, time does not make them mature. Time and knowledge does not define your maturity. The bible says you are known by your fruit. One who is muature bears enduring fruit.

John the Baptist was a man who lived in the wilderness. He wore clothes woven from coarse camel hair, and he wore a leather belt around his waist. For food he ate locusts and wild honey. A camel has very hard callous knees. John wearing clothes woven from a coarse camel hair represented that he was a praying man on his knees. He would be sent in the spirit and power of Elijah. In the book of James, Elijah was described as a ordinary human but one who earnestly prayed.

James 5:17(NKJV) Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months.

Elijah and John are not like most Christians today who do not pray at all or just pray over their meals. They are not like many Christians who define themselves as praying people who walk around thinking they are talking to God all day. They were men who were on their knees with closed eyes praying in the spirit of God. We must be a people that are able to sit still and pray in the spirit with our eyes closed for hours. Both John and Elijah wore leather belts. The belt represents the truth of God and wearing it around their waists defined their positions of authority and calling. The belt holds the clothes in place. They were in position to do God's work. John ate locusts and honey. John the Baptist was able to feed both spiritual meat and judgment. The locust represents judgment. Honey enlightens the eyes and gives strength but babes are not able to digest. John is one who cannot touch wine nor strong drinks. Christians are not allowed to drink at all but this represents that John has separated himself with the world.

Since John the Baptist was a praying man, one who was in position of authority and calling, and he had the authority to preach and bring discipline/rebuke, he was able to with authority rebuke the Pharisees. Just because one is a Christian, it does not mean one has authority to preach or rebuke other servants of God. Many Christians out there in the internet who slander and rebuke ministries and other servants of God must repent for many are speaking without authority.

John is a servant of God who had humbled himself to go into the wilderness. His father was a priest and he was in the line of priests. But rather than following his father's footsteps to go into institutional religion, he humbled himself to step down. He was a voice in the wilderness. Many Christians are in their wildernesses. There must be a people or church like John who is willing to stay in the wilderness to help those who are wondering in their spiritual wilderness to repent and guide them across the spiritual Jordon River onto the spiritual Promise Land.

John the Baptist was sent to prepare the way for the coming of the Lord. John can represent a person or the church. For the second coming of Christ, HE will send the prophet Elijah.

Malachi 4:5-6 “Look, I am sending you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord arrives. 6 His preaching will turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers. Otherwise I will come and strike the land with a curse.”

In the last days, HE will send someone (church) to prepare the way in the spirit and power of Elijah. What type of ministry was the Prophet Elijah? The Prophet Elijah was a FIRE MINISTRY as he was one to call on fire from the heavens. Moses had a FIRE MINISTRY as he met God through the burning bush and as the pillar of FIRE led God's people.

The Church that will prepare the way in the spirit and power of Elijah to prepare the Return of our Lord will be like John the Baptist. This Church will be a praying church. This Church will be in position of authority and calling. This Church will be eating spiritual honey and locust to preach revelation and have the authority to rebuke the spiritual Pharisees. This Church will call for the repentance of God people to return the hearts of the fathers to their children. This Church are the churches under the Holy Fire Ministry.

The two witnesses in the book of Revelation are mainly considered by many bible scholars as either Moses and Elijah. But many Christians are expecting the real Moses and Elijah during the Great Tribulation to bring forth Fire from their mouths. Our senior Pastor Kim, Yong Doo has told me he believes the two witnesses are the Church. The Praying Church is a Church filled with HIS Spirit and will be working in the spirit and power of Moses and Elijah in the last days. The Church will go through the Great Tribulation. We must prepare now in prayer for these last days.

Glory to HIM

Happy New Year in the Lord 2015!!

Happy New Year in the Lord, 2015. This is the year the Lord will pour more of HIS Spirit out but the question is if our hearts are ready? Our hearts are like hardened soil at first. In order to produce a harvest, the land must be plowed and tilled. If the land is properly plowed and tilled, then the Word of God can be planted and when the Rain comes, we have much harvest.
But for many Christians, their hearts are hardened ground. When the seed and rain falls on hardened ground, it will just run off. When the Word and Spirit is spoken to people, if they are not a broken people, the Word and Spirit will not sink into their hearts to change them.
Our hearts must be changed so that we may hear and see what the Spirit is saying. We must make a decision to allow God to break, crush, and winnow us. Sadly, many Christians run from their trials, tests, and tribulations. Rather than enduring the time to be broken, many Christians look for the easy way out. Many Christians are erroneously positioned to be raptured as they go through much difficulities. They are not taught to endure and persevere like Jesus did but they are taught to run. Rapture is not a bad thing but to be scared into and taught incorrectly are leading many into the wrong path. Knowing rapture is coming is not going to save you. We must truly know what it means to be rapture ready. Knowing the knowledge does not define one is ready. We must be led by the Spirit of God.
The year 2015 will be a new year for new positioning and authority. I am sorry to tell those who are wrongly taught, but rapture is not going to come in 2015 nor does it appear anytime soon. Moreover, California is going to get the rain and we are not going to get the tsunami nor will we fall off the map of the USA. The end time will occur much differently than what many have been erroneously taught. A Holy Fire Revival is coming to Northern California. A Spiritual Tsunami will come.
Ask the Holy Spirit for discernment. You must all learn to endure the time for God may be using the time to break, crush, and winnow you to produce a harvest from you. May your hearts become soft and broken to receive the Word and Spirit of the Lord and in due season produce much harvest for HIS Glory. Yes, the Lord is coming but HE is coming for those who know how to wait for HIM and those who know HIS Voice. Those who are awake and waiting are those who are constantly in praying in the Spirit and being cleansed.
May this year be very fruitful for you for HIS Kingdom and Glory.
