Editorial Special Section: Yvon Attia   : May – The Camels Are Coming Home!

Message: Yvon Attia Date: May 6, 2023  Source : List of Elijah  

As the month of May was approaching, both my husband and I consecrated a time of prayer in order to hear what is on God’s heart for the month of May.

May is the fifth month of the year, and a basic study of the Bible reveals that the number five symbolizes God’s grace. I believe five multiplied by itself (twenty-five) is symbolic of multiplied grace…in other words, grace upon grace (John 1:16).

After the historical first ‗Welcome the King of Glory‘ (WTKOG) convocation in Israel 2017, the Lord gave us a new word through the late Prophet Rev. Michael Maeliau, that we will go through a cocoon period where God will transform us from caterpillars into butterflies. In the past we have been crawling slowly like a caterpillar, but the Lord will transform us into flying butterflies. The butterfly signifies a total transformation of being, function, speed and beauty. The butterfly is the symbol/sign of our new season from October 2023.

Editorial Special Section: Dutch Sheets: Synergy of the Ages  – Finish the Racer Place?

Message: Dutch Sheets   Date: April 24-25, 2023   Source: “GiveHim15”  

My understanding of praying for America increased dramatically in 2001 as I prayed with the student body of a Bible institute. I was concerned that the institute was not walking in the fullness of what its founder, Gordon Lindsay, had established. In response to this burden, I chose to replace one of my teaching sessions with a prayer meeting. As I led the student body in intercession, I heard the Lord whisper a phrase to me, “I need for you to agree in prayer with Gordon Lindsay.” That startled me; Lindsay had died nearly 30 years earlier.

  • Receive New Anointing, Fire and Love : Heavenly Father, please touch the fathers and mothers of Taiwan, perhaps they are dry and wounded, come again, and fill them with fresh anointing, fire and love. Give your children  new baptism, and baptize them with Your love, that they may awaken and draw near to You.  Because you have not withheld one good thing from them, activated the gifts in them, and let them have supernatural experiences: dreams, visions.

Editorial Special Section: Yvon Attia   : May – The Camels Are Coming Home!

Message: Yvon Attia Date: May 6, 2023  Source : List of Elijah  

As the month of May was approaching, both my husband and I consecrated a time of prayer in order to hear what is on God’s heart for the month of May.

May is the fifth month of the year, and a basic study of the Bible reveals that the number five symbolizes God’s grace. I believe five multiplied by itself (twenty-five) is symbolic of multiplied grace…in other words, grace upon grace (John 1:16).

The words “multiplied grace” resonated deep in my spirit. I knew that the Holy Spirit was leading me into a deeper understanding of multiplied grace. I heard the sweet, gentle whisper of the Holy Spirit telling me that if grace is God’s unmerited or undeserved favor towards us, then “multiplied grace” is His divine enabling power which perfects our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).

The Camels Are Coming Home

As I was so engulfed with a sense of divine grace for the month of May, suddenly I heard, “The camels are coming home.” I thought to myself: This is such a strange and random word. I certainly wasn’t thinking of camels, nor do I enjoy riding them. I was never interested in camels, and didn’t know much about them. However, with the release of this clear, unusual and random word, I had to pause and press in to find out why camels are very significant and what they symbolize. I wanted to know…what does it mean for God to say: The camels are coming home. So I became very interested in finding out about the significance of camels and what the Lord was saying through this word.

Interestingly, in the Bible, camels were a sign of great wealth. Those that came with treasures and resources almost always had them on camel humps. According to biblical narratives, camels can symbolize power and status. When the queen of Sheba came to test Solomon, she arrived in Jerusalem with a large group of attendants and a great caravan of camels loaded with spices, large quantities of gold, and precious jewels. When she met with Solomon, she talked with him about everything she had on her mind (1 Kings 10:1-2).

Camels can carry greater loads and travel quite a bit farther than donkeys, they are much better adapted to traveling across sandy deserts, and do not need to be fed and watered as frequently. They are agile, relentless, and exhibit great perseverance that Believers need in these times of testing.

Camels are mentioned more than twenty times in the book of Genesis alone. Yet, sixteen of these mentions appear when Abraham’s servant takes ten of his master’s camels to Aram, where he was sent by Abraham to arrange for a wife for his son Isaac (Genesis 24:10). I took this as a clear invitation to press into this passage of Scripture and hear what God had to say about camels and, more specifically, camels coming home!

Why Ten Camels?

In this specific chapter Abraham was very old, and the Lord had blessed him in every way. Abraham called his most trusted servant and charged him not to choose a wife for Isaac from the people of Canaan. Instead, he instructed him to go back to Abraham’s own country to his relatives and choose a wife for Isaac (Genesis 24:1-5). In other words, the only requirement for this future wife, to be part of the covenant, was that she had to be a relative. The servant left to try and find this future wife for his master’s son.

Interestingly, the servant took ten of his master’s camels with him and loaded them with all kinds of gifts from his master. As I read that portion of Scripture, my questions were, “Why would he choose ten loaded camels? What was their significance in the story?”

The purpose of Abraham’s servant taking along what amounts to a caravan of camels, was to impress the prospective bride and her family with the great wealth of the prospective groom and his family.

Clearly, the underlying message was that the bride could be assured of a lifetime of security and plenty with the groom, and that her family would be rewarded for agreeing to the match. As a result, they would be comforted about the future of their daughter with the new groom.

By what means did Abraham acquire this great wealth? The answer to this question is provided earlier in the text when a famine in Canaan sent Abraham to Egypt. Abraham’s beautiful wife, Sarah, was taken by Pharaoh who, in return, bestowed great gifts upon Abraham on account of her…giving him sheep, cattle, donkeys, servants, maids and camels (Genesis 12:16).

Acquiring Camels During Seasons of Famine and Lack

Did Abraham possess camels prior to his encounter with the Pharaoh of Egypt? This is highly unlikely. To me, this revelation was so powerful! During a time of famine and lack, God multiplied grace for Abraham because he was in covenant with Jehovah. The number ten is also significant. From the Bible, we know that the number ten was used often for instituting and/or establishing new things. For example, the Ten Commandments were given to establish the Mosaic Law. Also, the ten plagues were to de-establish Pharaoh’s rule and kingdom. So, I believe the number ten is prophetically speaking of establishing a wealth covenant with the new Bride.

Coming back to the story of Abraham’s servant, when he arrived in the land of Abraham’s relatives, he went to the well in Aram and prayed. He wanted to make sure that God chose the right person who would inherit all his master’s wealth. He asked God for a sign saying, “Lord, God of my master Abraham, make me successful today, and show kindness to my master Abraham. See, I am standing beside this spring, and the daughters of the townspeople are coming out to draw water. May it be that when I say to a young woman, ‘Please let down your jar that I may have a drink,’ and she says, ‘Drink, and I’ll water your camels too’—let her be the one you have chosen for your servant Isaac. By this I will know that you have shown kindness to my master” (Genesis 24:12-14).

I have read this story many times, and I totally skipped over this impossible ask. How could a young girl give water to ten camels, each drinking an average of thirty gallons each? That’s a total of three hundred gallons of water! The Bible tells us that before the servant finished praying in his heart, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder (Genesis 24:15). She was the daughter of Abraham’s nephew, Bethuel (a relative), and his name also means the house of God. The Lord showed me that He kept Rebekah in His house with Bethuel until Abraham’s servant came so she could be released, by Him, to go with the servant and fulfill her calling of being in God’s Kingdom plan.

Rebekah is described as “…very beautiful, a virgin; no man had ever slept with her” (Genesis 24:16). Her purity was something noticeable! Often, in wealthy and royal families, the virgin daughters were given garments that distinguished them as such (2 Samuel 13:18). Widows and harlots had clothes that designated their status too (Genesis 38:14-15). This is so different from today! Rebekah was called beautiful, but the only description we are given of her beauty is in the fact that she had kept herself a virgin, consecrated for her calling in God’s house, the house of Bethuel. Her inward character was reflected in her outward appearance (1 Timothy 2:9-10; 1 Peter 3:3-4)

“…She went down to the spring, filled her jar and came up again.

“The servant hurried to meet her and said, ‘Please give me a little water from your jar.’

“‘Drink, my lord,’ she said, and quickly lowered the jar to her hands and gave him a drink.

“After she had given him a drink, she said, ‘I’ll draw water for your camels too, until they have had enough to drink.’ So she quickly emptied her jar into the trough, ran back to the well to draw more water, and drew enough for all his camels. Without saying a word, the man watched her closely to learn whether or not the Lord had made his journey successful.” (Genesis 24:16-21)

Set to Inherit Everything

The servant knew Rebekah was the one. He took out a gold nose ring and two gold bracelets and put them on her. Rebekah means: nook or to tie with. By the servant doing that, he was enacting a prophetic sign fulfilling the meaning of her name. The act was done as if to say, “You are now tied to the promise because you have consecrated yourself in the house of the Lord.” He then asked her two very prophetic questions. The first: Whose daughter are you? And the second: Is there room in your father’s house for the camels to come? (See Genesis 24:23.)

It was at that moment of reading this portion of the passage, that the Holy Spirit began to stir up my spirit. Because of Rebekah’s relationship to Abraham, she qualified to become Isaac’s wife and inherit everything. Likewise, we are to give thanks to the Father who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light (Colossians 1:12).

“For if you truly belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:29)

The Holy Spirit pointed out Rebekah’s service to me. She served the camels without expecting to inherit what they were carrying. She was not offering to put a bowl of water out for a thirsty puppy dog, but for ten loaded camels. She went the “extra mile” and beyond her capabilities.

She also moved in faith, and when she was asked by a stranger, “Do you have room for the camels?” Her answer was full of faith. She said, “We have plenty of room” (Genesis 24:25).

When the servant arrived at Bethuel’s home, we read about him telling Rebekah’s family, “The Lord has blessed my master (Abraham) abundantly, and he has become wealthy. He has given him sheep and cattle, silver and gold, male and female servants, and camels and donkeys” (Genesis 24:35 emphasis mine). The camels were there as a visual display of that great wealth, and they represented a large component of the wealth of his master.

At that moment, her family agreed with Abraham’s servant and declared, “The answer has come from the Lord.” They blessed Rebekah and said to her: “Our sister, may you increase to thousands upon thousands; may your offspring possess the cities of their enemies” (Genesis 24:60). At that moment, Rebekah was no longer serving the camels, she was riding on top of the camel.

It was after reading that portion that the Holy Spirit started speaking, telling us that the month of May will be a time of appointments for the greatest generational wealth transfer that we have ever seen. This is all because the God who has already blessed us with all heavenly blessings has ordered the ten camels to come home.

There Is No Back-Up Plan

This is what I heard the sweet voice of the Holy Spirit say in my prayer, “You are entering a month where My grace and favor will abound. This will be a month marked by unusual grace and favor, and your obedience and faith will be the qualification to receive abundant grace. This is not for the faint-hearted, but for those who will step up and believe that My greatest desire is to bless them.

“I have a great plan for your life. I do not have a back-up plan. The camels are coming! The biggest question is: Do you have room for the camels? I am not only a promise maker, I am a promise keeper. It may seem to you that you are running out of time, but I am outside of time. The blessing that is coming is from Me, and no one can do anything about it. Your journey will be marked by success. I am not only sending My angels before you…My Spirit is working in and through you to guide and let you in even when the doors are shut.

“I am shaking the foundations and removing anything that’s hindering or stopping you, and I will make your journey successful—just like I was with Joseph, he was a successful man, and he found great favor before the Pharaoh.

Time for You to Ride the Camels

I am pouring out My divine grace in measures you have never seen before. If Rebekah was blessed to increase thousands upon thousands, how much will I enlarge your territory and increase the work of your hands? Because of her sacrifice and obedience she was no longer serving the camels, rather, she was riding on the camels. The time is coming for you to ride the camels. Possess all things that I have sent your way.

When Isaac saw her sitting on the camels, he knew that those camels were carrying not only the material resources of his father, but the promise of his future wife who was chosen by God. Because of the covenant that’s between you and My Son, Jesus, get ready for a fresh outpouring of grace. In Him you have received grace upon grace.

This grace will be manifesting in magnificent ways you have never experienced before. It will happen in the most random places and least expected times. For I am the God who sees and who rewards publicly. Your promise is coming, for I am not a man that I should lie. I never slumber, nor sleep. I am awake, and if I am awake, you need to rest. You are the child of the Most High King, and the blessings of Abraham belong to you. I am leading you through a journey of success, not confusion.

Editorial Special Section: Milo Siilata Tuailemafua: COCOON BREAKOUT IN 2023, after 6 years in the Cocoon

Message : Milo Siilata Tuailemafua  Date: March  25,  2023

After the historical first ‗Welcome the King of Glory‘ (WTKOG) convocation in Israel 2017, the Lord gave us a new word through the late Prophet Rev. Michael Maeliau, that we will go through a cocoon period where God will transform us from caterpillars into butterflies. In the past we have been crawling slowly like a caterpillar, but the Lord will transform us into flying butterflies. The butterfly signifies a total transformation of being, function, speed and beauty. The butterfly is the symbol/sign of our new season from October 2023.

I thought our cocoon season would finish by Dec 2019, when the Messianic Jews hosted our second WTKOG in Nazareth. But I was wrong. The second WTKOG in Nazareth Dec 2019 plunged us deeper into the Cocoon when the Coronavirus Covid 19 was launched to the world. A lot of the participants of the Nazareth WTKOG were really sick with a strange virus. A lot of the participants were sick on their way back home including me. During the next two months (Jan-Feb 2020) the coronavirus Covid19 epidemic has spread around the world. 

With hindsight, we now know the Covid19 was already spreading out of China by the end of 2019. And the Coronavirus forced the world into isolation until the end of 2022. There is no doubt our Covid19 isolation was part of our cocoon season. It was obvious the Lord allowed this cocoon season for a reason. Our Cocoon Season of six years from October 2017 to October 2023 is coming to an end. We believe 2023 will be the Year of our Breakout from our Cocoon. 

The Butterfly Diadem by Janet Maki 

On 2nd of January 2023, the Lord gave me a vision of a butterfly breaking out of a cocoon. The wings of the butterfly were beautiful bright iridescent wings. The Lord said that these wings may look fragile but to the enemy the iridescent light of the wings will blind them and will cut like a two-edged sword but to the body of Christ, the iridescent light will be beautiful and the wings harmless. 

Then I saw the butterfly land on the side of His head like a flower, adorning His hair, an ornament for Him. Then I saw all these other butterflies coming around Him and forming a crown or a diadem on His head. When the butterflies settled on the Lord’s head they didn’t move anymore, they stayed in the formation of the crown. Yeshua told me the butterflies represent the nations and I could see they were of different colours and light – together they became one iridescent color. 

He poised for a moment, His face resolute, and His face was the face of a FIERCE warrior! It was very formidable and threatening. His eyes were FIERY, like bloodshot with the intensity of His anger as He goes to war. He did His war dance to show that from Jerusalem, He will be going to war. 

I believe this was a vision of the crowning of King Yeshua in Jerusalem October 2023 when the nations gather to make a covenant with the God of Israel. 

The Lord said that He will call His butterflies to covenant their nations to Him in Jerusalem Israel. I felt that this year of 2023 is the year of the BREAKTHROUGH for the Butterflies of the Lord. Janet Maki, Aitutaki, Cook Islands, Pacific. 

The Pacific still waiting for the new Global Network/Roundtable/Council to connect the nations to Israel. 

  • In 1986, the late Prophet Rev Michael Maeliau received the famous Deep Sea Canoe Vision in his nation of the Solomon Islands, the last nation to receive the Gospel. 
  • In 1991, Rev Michael Maeliau with the blessings of the World Evangelical Fellowship, launched the ―South Pacific Prayer Assembly‖ (SPPA) from Honiara, Solomon Islands. 
  • In 2003, the SPPA became the ―All Pacific Prayer Assembly‖ (APPA) in Vanuatu to include the whole Pacific. 4 
  • In 2010, the Prophet Rev Michael Maeliau buried the ―Deep Sea Canoe‖ in the Garden Tomb, Jerusalem, Israel – in obedience to the Lord. 
  • In 2011, under the leadership of Pastor Enoch Chang of the Amis Tribe, the Covenant Peoples of Taiwan (indigenous) hosted our first ―All Peoples Prayer Assembly‖ (APPA) in Taipei, Taiwan, to include any nation of the world. 
  • In 2017, the Messianic Jews in Israel (Israel of God) hosted their first ever conference in history, to officially welcome Yeshua as the King of Glory in Abu Gosh and Jerusalem. That event fulfilled the “Deep Sea Canoe Vision” (DSCV) and launched the Glory Cloud from Jerusalem to cover the whole earth as the waters cover the sea. 

Once we completed and fulfilled the ―Deep Sea Canoe Vision‖ in Jerusalem 2017, we the Pacific region officially requested the Messianic leaders in Israel for a global roundtable/ network/council to officially connect the nations to Israel. We have been waiting and yearning for God‘s United Nations in Jerusalem under the Lordship of King Yeshua the Lion of Judah. But the Messianic leaders in Israel told us that they were not ready for this yet. And so we continue to wait…… . 

We the Pacific family have been encouraging Israel to arise now and shine as God exhorted them through the prophet Isaiah (Isaiah 60:1-3), because the Lord is now arising over Israel as their glory and light. We do hope that 2023 will be the year for the Israel of God to ARISE and launch the Olive Tree of Israel, the Commonwealth of Israel and the One New Man to unite Israel and the nations through Yeshua the Messiah. The apostle Paul revealed this mystery concept of Israel and the nations united through the Messiah in his letter to the Ephesians 2, and in his letter to the Romans 11. God‘s restored Church for the end times will be headed by the Israel of God with its headquarter in Jerusalem. I personally believe that this will be the first shoot/sprout of the True Church that God will separate from the False Church. There will be only two churches at the end of this age – the True Church and the False Church. We want the whole Pacific to be part of the True Church and the Bride of Christ. 

  • In 2018 during our annual gathering in New Caledonia, we the Pacific movement adopted a temporary name called the All Pacific Arise (APA) as we wait. So we are now in our sixth years of waiting for God to launch a new global body/network for Israel and the nations, to be led from Israel and by Israel, the Firstborn of God among the nations. We do not mind waiting because God knows the perfect time for everything according to His perfect will. 

All Pacific Arise Burial in Vanuatu – Thursday 9 March 2023 

During our Pacific Council in Vanuatu 8-9 March 2023, the Lord commanded us to bury the whole ―All Pacific Arise‖ (APA) movement and everything in it, as we await our resurrection in Jerusalem. We hope that will be during the next ―Welcome the King of Glory‖ (WTKOG) in October 2023. We believe the moment of our resurrection will be the same moment we breakout of the Cocoon. 

So in obedience to the Lord, we buried the All Pacific Arise (APA) and all our ministries on the island of Erakor in Port Vila, Vanuatu on Thursday 9 March 2023. That was the same day the Silicon Valley Bank collapsed in the US, starting a domino effect economic collapse. 4 We used a coconut for our burial. Emma Maeliau (a daughter of the late prophet Rev. Michael Maeliau) buried the coconut in the earth and our Chairman Emmanuel Fave sealed our burial with a prayer. 

Now every nation in the Pacific needs to seek the Lord and respond accordingly to our death and burial. The Lord gave us the word – “Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains alone, but if it dies, it bears much fruit. ” John 12:24. After five years of waiting on Israel to launch our new global Body and identity, it makes sense to bury everything now, as we await our resurrection in Jerusalem soon. The warning from the Lord is this – God cannot resurrect something that is not dead. God cannot increase and multiply something that has not been buried. So make sure you bury everything and bury them properly. We need to bury all our old wine skins, including all church ministries, church denominations and institutions. We will never be part of God‘s new order that He will launch from Jerusalem, unless we bury the old order in our personal lives, our families, our churches and our nations. And lastly, make the most of your remaining time in burial. Make the most of your last months in your cocoon. Just be still and let the Lord complete the inner work of the Holy Spirit in you, as He transforms you and your nation from a caterpillar to a butterfly. Don‘t waste this opportunity for your breakthrough. 

The island of our burial, Erakor Island in Port Vila, Efate, Vanuatu, was the base for the first Christian mission under the London Missionary Society (LMS) that landed in Efate in 1845. In 1997, the Lord told Rev Michael Maeliau (on his way to Samoa for our 7th South Pacific Prayer Assembly) to pick up the mantle of the London Missionary Society that was still in Vanuatu since the killing of the famous LMS missionary John Williams on the island of Eromanga in 1839. The Lord told Rev Michael Maeliau that the LMS Mantle was for the ―Deep Sea Canoe‖ movement. During my visit to the Birmingham House of Prayer in England 2016 , the Lord told me to return the LMS Mantle to England as He will give the Pacific region a new mantle. So I laid down the LMS mantle in Birmingham with a heart full of thanksgiving and praise to God for what the London Missionary Society did for my Pacific peoples since its first arrival at Tahiti, French Polynesia in March 1797. That was an emotional assignment for me for I am a fruit of the LMS Church of Samoa . It is now 7 years since I returned the mantle of the LMS back to England 2016. I believe the Lord is ready to release His new mantle for the Pacific in Jerusalem October 2023, when He resurrects us from our Burial, and Breaks us out of our Cocoon. 

The Burial is for the Global Church 

As I was finishing off this report, I have the conviction from the Lord that this word/rhema about Burial is not just for the Pacific but for the whole global Church. 

This word confirms the word about the Cocoon. But I know the majority of Christians in the world do not believe any word from the Pacific. So if you are not sure about this report, check it out with the Lord. I have done my part and the ball is in your court. 

The word on the Cocoon is not just for the Pacific, but for the whole global Church for the following reasons: 

  1. The Lord gave that word to Papa Michael Maeliau not in the Pacific but in Jerusalem at the end of our first WTKOG in October 2017. 
  2. During our second WTKOG in Nazareth Dec 2019, the Lord took us deeper into the Cocoon with the Covid19. That 3 years epidemic affected the whole world and not just the Pacific region. 
  3. Our Breakout of the Cocoon will be in Jerusalem Israel and not somewhere in the Pacific. So the Cocoon Season is for the global Church.
  4. The word through Janet Maki about the Lord summoning the nations as butterflies for His Crown in Jerusalem in October 2023 – confirmed that the Cocoon season is for the global Church. 

Happy Burial for those who are already dead and waiting…… . 

Happy moulding for those still in your cocoons. 

Be still and know that He is God.

Editorial Special Section: Regina Shank: Your Are Going to Get the Carrot!

Message: Regina Shank   Date: March 20, 2023   Source: “GiveHim15”  

There is a great move of God on the horizon. It has already started and is continuing. Those in bondage to darkness will come out into the light. Traumatized, rejected ones inside and outside the body of Christ will receive healing. The hopeless will find hope again; promises will suddenly manifest. Be assured when God speaks, He has the power to bring it forth.

Years ago, the Lord spoke promises to me that looked impossible and, on top of that, seemed forever in the making. I began to see myself as a donkey following a carrot on the end of the stick. You know the scenario. The donkey keeps following the carrot, but never acquires it. The owner of the donkey outwits him by tempting him with something he will never get. He takes step after step, moving forward with his eyes on what will never be his. For a season, I felt like I was that donkey. For me, the carrot was representative of the yet-to-be-fulfilled promises and dreams. I became disillusioned in the waiting. One day I was in prayer about these promises when the Lord spoke these words to me: ‘You are my lady-in-waiting.’

As I sat before Him on the floor of my prayer room, I realized there was a deeper meaning hidden in that statement. Then He spoke again, ‘Wait on Me in worship; dress Me in praise. In the waiting, allow My glory to sweep over you and transform you inside and out.’

Suddenly, the Scripture in 2 Corinthians 3:18 (NLT) came to mind.So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into His glorious image.’

How do you disagree with the timing of God? I thought I was ready to step into the full responsibility and calling contained in my promises before the Lord was ready to release me. I knew I didn’t want to be an Abraham who helped God out, refusing to wait on God’s timing. But, I certainly understood the urge to do so.

A few weeks later, I drove to St. Louis for a prayer assignment. The intercessors came together for prayer and instruction prior to boots on the ground. A prophetic man I did not know came up to me after the meeting, looked me in the face, and said, ‘You are going to get the carrot.’

I was stunned. Questions came to mind: Who is this guy? How did he become aware of my intimate prayers with my Father? He definitely read my mail! After the shock wore off and I was able to get by myself, I let the tears flow and realized the Lord was reassuring me of His faithfulness. With the assurance of a prophetic word from a man who did not know me, or have any knowledge of my petitions before the throne, I continued to WAIT on God to bring forth His promises. The next week I was leading a ladies’ meeting. During a break in the training session, a lady in the back of the room came up to me timidly and said, ‘I don’t know why the Lord asked me to do this, but I bought you something.’

She opened her hand, and there lay a piece of jewelry like I had never seen. It was a pin in the shape of a carrot. It was sparkling in her hand, bright orange in color with green leaves crowning the top. Well, that was the final straw, or shall I say carrot? I still have that piece of jewelry to remind me of God’s faithfulness to deliver the dreams He puts in our hearts. I am now walking in many of those promises and impossible dreams. The donkey did get the carrot.

We have promises of worldwide revival, manifested healings, and societal changes. We have personal and corporate dreams and hopes being formed in the womb of prayer and petition. I can assure you, they are not carrots dangling in front of the donkey. What God says, He will do.

Editorial Special Section: Dutch Sheets: Synergy of the Ages  – Finish the Racer Place?

Information: Dutch Sheets   Date: April 24-25, 2023   Source: “GiveHim15”  

My understanding of praying for America increased dramatically in 2001 as I prayed with the student body of a Bible institute. I was concerned that the institute was not walking in the fullness of what its founder, Gordon Lindsay, had established. In response to this burden, I chose to replace one of my teaching sessions with a prayer meeting. As I led the student body in intercession, I heard the Lord whisper a phrase to me, “I need for you to agree in prayer with Gordon Lindsay.” That startled me; Lindsay had died nearly 30 years earlier.

“Lord,” I said, “is that really You speaking? He is dead.”

The response was simple, “Well, his prayers are not dead.”

If you had asked if I believed Gordon Lindsay’s prayers had died with him, I would have said “no.” Yet I had never given the concept of agreeing with them any real thought.

Holy Spirit continued, “Until this generation comes into agreement with what he asked me to do, I can’t answer his prayer.”

This greatly impacted me. I realized God hadn’t said, “I won’t.” He had clearly said that without this generation’s agreement with Lindsay, “I can’t answer his prayers and do what I promised him.”

Later, I pondered this statement in light of Hebrews 11, remembering the heroes of faith listed there along with some of their amazing exploits. Interestingly, however, the passage is also clear that some of those faith heroes did NOT see the fulfillment of their promises. Clearly, they weren’t deficient in their walk of faith; why then did they die without seeing the promises fulfilled?

The last two verses of Hebrews 11 give us the amazing answer. They did not receive the fulfillment of their promises because God wouldn’t allow them to be “complete” without us. That is remarkable! Later generations completed these individuals’ callings and assignments. The Greek word translated “complete” also means “to finish; to mature; to reach the intended goal.” (1) Think about the ramifications of this: without us, God can’t “finish” what He began through earlier saints; what He started through them cannot “mature” or “reach its intended goal” until we grab the baton and run our leg of the race. That is mind-blowing!

God gave these individuals promises, but He often didn’t give them timelines. He did not tell them He would bring the fulfillment in their lifetimes, although I’m sure most of them expected Him to do so. He makes promises to people, knowing full well He will deliver on those promises through their children, grandchildren, or spiritual descendants. I wonder what I may be finishing for a pastor or teacher from a few decades ago? Or perhaps even for some flag-waving patriot warrior?

The generations are far more interconnected than most of us realize. In God’s mind, accomplishing something through our descendants is the same as doing it through us. Our comparatively shortsighted approach assumes every promise He makes will take place momentarily, or at the very least before we die! Meanwhile, God feels no pressure and understands that if He fulfills His promises through our offspring (natural or spiritual), the accomplishments were by us, as well as by them.

Back to the Prayer Meeting

But Holy Spirit wasn’t finished instructing me in this prayer session at the Bible Institute. He was about to use a seven-word sentence that would rock my finite human mind. I heard Him say, “I need the synergy of the ages.”

“You need WHAT?” I wondered.

It is obvious by now that this prayer time was wreaking havoc on my preconceived concepts and paradigms! Holy Spirit was making me think outside of my God-limiting boxes.

What is the synergy of the ages? I quietly wondered.

Synergy is a fascinating concept. Basically, it is the multiplication of power through a combined effort. In almost all cases in the physical world, one plus one equals two. But not when people work together. When two or more people combine their efforts and strengths, power is multiplied – not just added to. God so loves unity and agreement that He created a phenomenon through which power multiplies – if we will work together! Two people who can each lift 100 pounds, can lift 300 pounds or more when lifting an item together.

Synergy, however, not only operates in the natural realm; it also exists in the spirit realm. Prayer is one example. Spiritual synergy takes place when two or more agree in prayer. Through the multiplied power, much more is accomplished than would have been had we prayed alone. Leviticus 26:8 teaches us about this power of multiplication, “Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall chase ten thousand, and your enemies shall fall before your sword.” Spiritually, that’s powerful; mathematically, however, it makes no sense. But something unusual and supernatural takes place through agreement: synergy. When we agree in prayer, power grows exponentially.

Generational Synergy

Synergy also occurs when one generation honors and builds on the previous generation’s accomplishments. Honoring the connection with our parents increases our years on earth (Ephesians 6:1-2), while disconnecting brings curses (Malachi 4:6). Spiritual mantles, another word for callings and giftings, multiply in effectiveness through generational synergy (2 Kings 2:9). God’s plan is always for the present generation to build on the strengths and accomplishments of the previous. This is the synergy of the ages – multiplied power and fruitfulness through generational agreement and honor.

In Al Sander’s book, Crisis in Morality!, he compares the descendants of an atheist, Max Jukes, to the offspring of a well-known preacher of that same era, Jonathan Edwards:

“Max Jukes…married an ungodly girl and among their descendants were 310 who died as paupers, 150 as criminals, 7 as murderers, 100 as drunkards and more than half of the women were prostitutes.

“Jonathan Edwards…lived at the same time and married a godly girl [Sarah Pierpont]. An investigation was made of 1,394 known descendants of theirs. Of these descendants, 13 became college presidents, 65 college professors, 3 United States senators, 30 judges, 100 lawyers, 60 physicians, 75 army and navy officers, 100 preachers and missionaries, 60 authors of prominence, one a vice-president of the United States, 80 became public officials…and 295 college graduates, among whom were governors of states and ministers to foreign countries.” (2)

Could any testimony more powerfully make my point? Success, favor, and blessing can multiply down through the generations. But due to our ignorance in this area, we sometimes unknowingly break the generational storyline God is writing.

When Holy Spirit spoke to me that day, I was already aware of synergistic prayer. I knew I could agree in prayer with the person next to me, and power would be multiplied (Matthew 18:19). I just didn’t know I could agree with the generation behind me! Generational synergy – the synergy of the ages – was nowhere on my radar. Once God had awakened me to the principle, however, He wasn’t about to stop with a Bible institute. Before He was finished, Holy Spirit would challenge me to reach back to our nation’s founders, agreeing with what He had birthed through them.

And when He did, a forgotten flag would be an important part of the process – the Appeal to Heaven flag.

Finish the Race

The Lord has frequently spoken to Julie Meyer, an internationally known intercessor, worshipper, and seasoned leader, through detailed dreams. In a dream given to her several years ago, Julie saw seven ambulances lined up, each with lights flashing. She walked to the back of one of the ambulances to see what was happening, peeked in, and saw a non-responsive person laying on a gurney. Next to the patient was an attendant working feverishly to revive him.

In her dream, Julie knew this attendant was an angel. He looked at her and said, “I can’t find a heartbeat.” She went from one ambulance to the next finding the same scenario – patients on gurneys with angels attending them, trying to restart their hearts. Suddenly, one of the angels looked directly at Julie and confided, “It’s the intercessors.”

This dream made sense to me. For a number of years, I had watched as the strength of the prayer movement waned, with many becoming weary and losing heart. Intercessors had prayed years for revival, but the revival hadn’t materialized, and many of them had experienced what Proverbs 13:12 refers to as “hope deferred.” And as this passage teaches, hope deferred had given them heart disease. Traveling much across America, I could attest to the truthfulness of the dream. It was hard to find a heartbeat in many tired intercessors.

As Julie’s dream continued, suddenly one of the angels shouted, “I found a heartbeat, but it’s very faint!”

The other angels grew excited and asked, “What did you do?” They, of course, wanted to do the same thing in order to generate a heartbeat in their own intercessors.

The first angel replied, “Tell the old stories. When I began telling her stories of what God did in the past, her heart started to beat.”

With that, these heavenly attendants began speaking to the intercessors about the First Great Awakening, The Second Great Awakening, and other outpourings of Holy Spirit – right up through the healing revivals and tent meetings of the 1940’s, 50s, and 60s. As they did so, the hearts of all the intercessors started beating again. At this point in the dream, an angel looked at Julie and directed her, “Tell the old stories of what God has done in the past.”

As I read this portion of the dream, I was impacted, but this angelic messenger then added instructions that stirred my heart even more: “Tell the intercessors to put themselves in the storyline, because the old stories are also their stories.”

What a profound and intriguing thought!

Who among us actually thinks this way? We should, however. God has one overarching plan for humankind, not many; we’re all part of the same unfolding drama. Our generation’s role in history is simply another act of yesterday’s play; our battles are conflicts of one ongoing war. Every revival in history is but a sequel in Holy Spirit’s ongoing series of outpourings, and every soul saved enters the same spiritual family. Our stories, though many, are one. Put yourself in the storyline, because the old stories actually are your stories!

For too long, we Christians – even those who are students of church history – have simply viewed accounts of past moves of God as inspirational. We’ve never thought of them as “our” stories. I had never thought of Wesley and his Methodists as my movement. Finney’s awakening certainly wasn’t my awakening, and William Seymour’s Azusa Street outpouring wasn’t mine. Most of us simply haven’t thought this way.

Our shortsighted reasoning has stolen from us the synergy of the ages. We’ve not put ourselves in the storyline. And since we don’t typically align with past movements or agree with past prayers, this has all too often led to the segmentation of the ages, forcing each generation’s intercession and efforts to stand on their own. Actually, the results can be more devastating than that: God says that when the generations disconnect, it can create a curse (Malachi 4:6).

On the other hand, putting ourselves into the storyline God is writing allows us to tap into the strength and life of what He did years ago. Iniquities from the past flow to 3 or 4 generations (Exodus 34:7); blessings, however, flow to 1000 generations! (Deuteronomy 7:9). We must understand the eternal purposes of God – not just His current purposes – allowing Him to continue through us what He began in others. And, according to Hebrews 11:40, they can watch from heaven as their promise is fulfilled through us.

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned agreeing with prayers Gordon Lindsay prayed while on earth in order to produce the synergy of the ages. The Bible College’s student body and I needed to put ourselves into his storyline, becoming a necessary link in the chain. We couldn’t just assume God’s promises to Lindsay would one day be fulfilled – Holy Spirit needed agreement in order to finish what He had started. We had a vital role to play.

Reinforced by Julie’s dream, this revelation opened my heart to a myriad of storylines we, as a generation, needed to identify with. We could insert ourselves into the storyline of the pilgrims at Cape Henry, declaring that the gospel of the Kingdom would go from these shores to all the nations of the earth. We could align with Charles Finney, believing that city-changing revivals would be rekindled in our day. We could agree with the prayers of Rees Howells for revivals that would shake nations. We could join the efforts of Martin Luther King, Jr., and see his dream of racial healing in America reach its intended goal. For me, the great cloud of witnesses had become more than mere spectators and cheerleaders; they were an earlier leg of a relay race, waiting for someone to grab their baton.

This truth pierced my conscience. God began the process of connecting my heart and actions with those who had run before me. My life began expanding, being defined not just by an eighty or ninety-year destiny, but by an eternal destiny and inter-generational purpose. I realized I was part of a historical chain, planned by God and built with human lives. “Back to the future” took on real meaning: Like Elijah’s servant, Elisha, I would have to connect with the past in order to find my future; the power he needed today was hidden in his yesterday (2 Kings 2:14-15). Reaching back would not only bring my life added significance, but also the lives of those who had lived before me (Hebrews 11:39-40). God’s love of relational connection would find fulfillment, causing Him to release an entirely new level of spiritual power – the synergy of the ages.

I immediately began processing this revelation in the context of my calling to America. It was obviously relevant to praying for nations. I knew I could connect with America’s story more personally, joining my heart to the prayers and dreams of pilgrims, colonists, pioneers, and every other generation that makes up our story. Whatever the cost, I determined to do my part in keeping the dream alive.

As the Lord began challenging me to enter America’s story, He assured me that if I would do so, not only would He use me to extend it into the future, but also to heal portions of its past. If I was willing to identify with and repent of America’s painful chapters, he would teach me how history can be healed. I remember the first time those words entered my heart: healing history. What a wonderful thought, I recall thinking, but is that really possible? I now know it is. History can never be changed, but its effects – the guilt and pain – can be healed.

Pray for America: War With Covenant

Editor’s note: This article is adapted from a post on April 18 of “Give Him 15 Minutes” by Dutch Sheets . The fact that the United States has made a covenant with God can be seen in history. Please refer to the post on May 1 of “Give Him 15 Minutes”: America’s Christian Heritage

【Background: The first thing God tells us in the story of David and Goliath is the location of the battle.

“Now the Philistines gathered their armies for battle; they were gathered at Socoh which belongs to Judah, and they camped between Socoh and Azekah, in Ephes-dammim. Saul and the men of Israel were gathered and camped in the valley of Elah, and drew up in battle array to encounter the Philistines.” (1 Samuel 17:1-2)

I realize that doesn’t interest you. You’re like me: Come on, Holy Spirit, get to the good stuff: Goliath’s description; the drama of his taunts; the fear of the Israelites; David, the young sheepherder; the battle; off with the giant’s head. I skipped over those two “boring” verses for the first 50 years of my life.

And missed a nugget.

This location was in the territory of Judah, which was the tribe David came from. Holy Spirit was informing us, right from the start, that this land belonged to David and his tribe. It had been given to them by God generations ago. David had more than squatter’s rights to the property the giant was trying to claim; he had divine rights. These first two verses of the story assured him of victory. The God who created and owns the earth (Psalm 24:1) has the right to give it to whomever He pleases. And He had given it to Judah.

Battle over.

Don’t think so? I’ll give you another reference that reinforces this truth. When Nehemiah was allowed, by the Persian King Artaxerxes, to return to Jerusalem and rebuild its walls, he faced great opposition. The locals despised the Jews and were determined to stop them from building. When Nehemiah faced their threats and opposition, he stated his case for success in one verse: 

“I answered by saying, ‘The God of heaven will give us success. We, His servants, will start rebuilding, but as for you, you have no share in Jerusalem or any claim or historic right to it.’” (Nehemiah 2:20 NIV)

“We have a historical, God-given right to this city,” Nehemiah declared. “You don’t. Therefore, we win, you lose.” Case closed. 

It is beyond doubt that God raised up America for His purposes. He owns America, just as He does the entire earth; in that right of ownership, He delegated stewardship of this nation to followers of Christ, believers who would partner with Him in His great cause of redeeming the world. Do not listen to the liars, revisionists, or those they have influenced that say otherwise. If the body of Christ in America ever fully grasps this revelation, the giants attempting to steal our nation have no chance.

Uncircumcised Philistine

David’s next “history weapon” can be seen in the fact that not once did he call Goliath by name. He referred to him only as the “uncircumcised Philistine.” What is that all about? Imagine two guys about to fight who begin to shout insults at one another.

  • Jed: “You’re ugly.”
  • Jethro: “Your mama is ugly.”
  • Jed: “You’re a wimp.”
  • Jethro: “You couldn’t beat up a flea.”

I know, these are a little weak. Not exactly Rambo-level insults, but I’m trying to keep it clean here. And you get my point – insults and degrading salvos are flying back and forth. Then, one of them shouts at the other, sealing the deal with the ultimate insult:

  • “Well, You’re UNCIRCUMCISED!”
  • Huh? Didn’t see that one coming.

As strange as this seems, there was actually an important reason for David’s choice of names. Circumcision symbolized covenant with God (Genesis 17:13). Since the days of Abraham, this had been the case. David was stating to the giant, I’m in covenant with God; you’re not. Whereas to those in covenant, you’ll be fighting God, not just me. This battle won’t be decided by your size, experience, weaponry, or strength. It was decided long ago when my grandfather cut covenant with God, and I’m going to defeat you through the power of that covenantal history. I win; you lose.

This is confirmed by David’s statement to the “uncircumcised Philistine”: “I come to you in the name of the Lord of Hosts…the Lord will deliver you into my hand…for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hand,” (1 Samuel 17:45-47).

No wonder secularists want to steal America’s history with God! We shouldn’t be surprised that former President Obama once said we were not a Christian nation, contending that we were also a Muslim nation, a Hindu nation, an atheist nation, and so on. Karl Marx once said, “The first battlefield is to rewrite history.” The demons controlling Marx knew the importance and power of history. And, of course, demons today inspire anti-Christ forces in America to try and rewrite our history for the same reasons. As believers, we must stake our claim on the fact that God birthed America, and that He and our Founders made covenantal agreements/promises to one another.

I’m not suggesting that God and those who came to these shores entered into a covenant carrying the same weight as the Old and New Covenants in Scripture. There are different levels of covenants, however. The biblical word means “a compact, confederacy, league.” The great Brown Driver-Briggs Lexicon defines it not only as covenant, but as “an alliance (of friendship); an alliance (of marriage); a constitution; agreement.” The fact that our Founders covenanted with God when they came to this land is beyond dispute. Consider reading America’s Covenant With God, by Dr. Eddie Hyatt, which makes this abundantly clear. 

Do not underestimate the importance of this. God put into the hearts of our forefathers to come to this land. He did so to raise up a nation that would form an “alliance,” a sacred “agreement” (the definitions of covenant) to partner with Him for the propagation of the gospel to all the earth, to be a city on a hill shining His light for all to see.

Obviously, God’s intent was not for this to be accomplished through abusing First Nations people. His plan is for all races and ethnicities to share in the privilege of representing Him and enjoying the benefits that come with this.However, in spite of our failures, God redeems, cleanses, and continues to use us, just as He did with Abraham. We must believe this, and do as David did: stake our claim to this land based on our alignment with God and His purposes. 

As we mentioned earlier, those joined by covenant share resources and strengths; they also share enemies. If the Ekklesia in America faces the giants of our day armed with the truth that this land belongs to God (“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof,” Psalm 24:1); if we stand on the truth that He established our nation to represent Him; and if we now resist the giants in His name – we will defeat them!

War with covenant! War with history!

Pray for Israel: Pray for the 75th Anniversary of the Restoration of Israel – Enter the Spiritual Promised Land

Current event: Israel celebrates the 75th anniversary on the 5th of the Jewish month of Iyar and April 26th of the Gregorian calendar.  According to the resolution on the partition of Palestine passed by the United Nations General Assembly with more than 2/3 majority votes on November 29, 1947, the National Council of Israel held a statehood ceremony at the Tel Aviv Museum on May 14, 1948, officially announcing the establishment of the State of Israel. It was the 5th day of the month of Iyar in 5708 of the Jewish calendar. In 1949, the Israeli Knesset passed a resolution to set the 5th day of Iyar in the Jewish calendar as the Independence Day of the State of Israel. The holiday is considered a day to commemorate the restoration of an independent Jewish state in the land of Israel.

However, at this time Israel is in the biggest all-round crisis since the restoration of the country. Internally, the national debate over judicial reform has been intense since early January, bringing large numbers of demonstrators to the streets every week. While the new government had hoped early on that the protests would subside over time, the reality has been the opposite, with protests growing in number and intensity. On the evening of April 27, the day after Independence Day was celebrated, nearly 200,000 protesters participated in the “Million March” in support of judicial reform. Externally, Iran is waging a multi-front war of attrition against the State of Israel, and the purity of nuclear enriched uranium is increasing. In February this year, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported that Iran’s uranium enrichment level was slightly lower than the 90% required to produce an atomic bomb. , adding that it may have reached the 84% level. Meanwhile Iran is trying to gain a foothold on Israel’s northern front, sending its proxies to Judah, Samaria and Gaza.

It is amazing that our father of faith, Abraham, was called by God at the age of 75 to leave his family and enter the Promised Land ( Genesis 12 ). According to Jewish tradition, God led Abraham to Mount Hermon and showed him the Promised Land ( Genesis 15:5 ). Abraham, the father of faith, stood on Mount Hermon and saw the promised land from the Egyptian River to the Euphrates River. This was not only seen with the naked eye, but what he walked through physically, he saw the promised land in a vision in the spirit, And accepted the promise by faith. He who died in faith did not receive the promise while he was on earth, but saw it from afar and received it with joy. Today, 75 years after the miraculous restoration of Israel, as God’s chosen people, they not only return to the Promised Land in nature, but also enter the Promised Land spiritually, becoming the light of the nations.
