Two Tongues, Two Fires

One day I was out walking in the winter cold and I thought to myself, “What am I to preach to the church I have been invited to speak at?”  Immediately, the Holy Spirit filled my mind with a field and and a forest behind it completely ablaze.  Everything was burning fiery orange embers that glowed against the dark night sky.

I asked the Lord what it meant and He spoke to me that man can set a fire ablaze inspired either by Hell with his tongue, or Heaven through the Holy Spirit.  And we must have the Holy Spirit!  We must have an increase of the Holy Spirit for Jesus’ sake.  How can we set regions ablaze with His Heavenly Fire?  He longs to cast fire to the earth and how He wishes it were already kindled.  But how do we get it?

Jesus shows us all things as our model and having become a man, He showed the way for all mankind.  Jesus, our sinless Savior, went into the waters of the baptism of repentance, not for Himself, but for all the world, turning sinful man - God’s children back to their Father. Under the water Christ went, and left beneath the ripples, an era where sin, death and Satan reigned since Adam and ended it!

He rose from the water on behalf of man, God Himself parted the Heaven’s and released His Spirit declaring, “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” (Matt 3:17)

The last time the pleasure of God was spoken like this was over a sinless Adam, whom He blew the wind of His Spirit upon and filled and declared that Adam, His son, was very good.( Gen. 1:31)

After Adam sinned, the Holy Spirit would come and go upon, or seize men and women for tasks and prophecy and they would speak, work or war for God under the unction of His Spirit, such as Gideon, Samson, and Samuel. The Spirit would come and go- but upon Jesus, the Spirit remained (John 1:33).  From that moment on Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil (Acts 10:38).  He was about His Father’s business and the Spirit of God was upon Him to preach the Gospel to the poor, bind up the brokenhearted and proclaim freedom to the captives.(Is. 61)

He opened prison doors, cleansed the lepers, healed the sick, raised the dead and cast out devils.  He did what He saw His Father doing and spoke what the Spirit of His Father told Him too.

Although, Jesus’ disciples baptized with water, Jesus did not.  No, from that point on, baptism would become a symbol of a clear conscience towards God through repentance.  But Jesus came to bring a new baptism - the baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire. (Matt. 3:11)  Oh, yes, it involves repentance to receive.

“Each one of you must repent and turn to God for the forgiveness of your sins and you will receive the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 2:28)

There is a difference between filled and baptized!  A mighty difference that God has put forth in the anchor of His sure and steadfast Word. Jesus says to His disciples,

'As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit."'  (John 20:21-22 NIV)

The difference is like this.  When you pour water into a glass, it is full.  When you put the glass in the pitcher of water, it is baptized.

The word baptism comes from when a dyer of fabric wants to change the color of the fabric.  He takes the fabric to a vat of water full of purple dye.  The water is hot.  The dyer is the baptizer and he holds the fabric in his hands and plunges it into the hot dyed water. When he lifts it, it has taken on the qualities of the dye.  They are one.  You cannot separate the dye from the fabric.  They are one.

Jesus is not baptizer of fabrics but of the children of God.  Amen!  As we repent, He holds us in His hands and baptizes us in a river of Fire, the Fire of God- The Holy Spirit.  He is an All Consuming Fire and when we are lifted from that river of fire, we have taken on the Fire of God and the character, power and qualities of God Himself!  You cannot separate this dye of fire from the fabric of our souls.  They are one.  First Corinthians. 6:17 conveys it with authority and beauty:

He who is joined to the Lord is one Spirit with Him

You take on the character of God for relationships, life and the power of God Himself to overcome sin, temptation and adverse situations.  You take on God’s power over sickness, death and disease and over all the power of the devil.  You take on His boldness and courage.  The Holy Spirit does not have a single ounce of fear in Him, and back down to no one and nothing.  He is righteous and the righteous are as bold as lions (Prov. 28:1)

Jesus told them to wait, to tarry and they would receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon them, and they would become His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and unto the ends of the earth.  The word witness is from the greek word martus, (Strong's G3144). It means one who testifies even unto death, martyr, a faithful and true witness.  

In a courtroom, a witness can be a living piece of evidence bearing the marks that something has occurred.  When you are baptized with the Holy Ghost, tongues of His fire fall upon you and you are a living piece of evidence and like Jesus, the Spirit of God is upon you to preach the Good news with fire like Jesus did, and go around doing good and healing all who are oppressed by the devil.  It will make you strong in God’s might to speak for Him.  The baptism changed cowering and fearful disciples into apostles unto death.

There is another fire that can start a raging fire and it only takes a tiny ember:

But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.  And the tongue is a flame of fire.  It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body.  It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself.  No one can tame the tongue. (James 3:6-8).

Jesus said that it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks (John 6:45).  And although no one can tame the tongue, we can tame the heart with God’s help.  He bids us to purify our hearts in James 4:8.  We purify our hearts with repentance.

Sometimes what we have repented of is difficult to stick with, but God is abundant in mercy and makes us this promise:

I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you.  I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender and responsive heart.  And I will put My Spirit in you so that you will follow My decrees and be careful to obey My regulations.  (Ez. 36:26, 27)

And I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit within them.  (Ez. 11:19)

Look at Isaiah, one of the most powerful, and prophetic preachers for God in history.  Mark carefully in your heart his experience as he encounters God in a vision and is commissioned to speak for Him.

Isaiah’s Vision

6 In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. 2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called out to another and said,

“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts,

The whole earth is full of His glory.”

4 And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke. 5 Then I said,

“Woe is me, for I am ruined!

Because I am a man of unclean lips,

And I live among a people of unclean lips;

For my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.”

6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. 7 He touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven.”

Isaiah’s Commission

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!” 9 He said, “Go, and tell this people:.....

When he repented, God did the work with fire and then sent him out to speak.  Likewise, as we wait on the Lord and tarry with repentant hearts, He will send us His Holy Ghost fire.  As Jesus is, so are we in this world and as the Father sent Him, so He sends us.  Sends us to do what?  To represent the Father with the characteristics and miraculous power of Himself by His Spirit into every oppressive situation mankind faces.  This is the Good News.

And why, on earth do we need the Holy Spirit?  It goes all the way back to Genesis 1 when the Spirit of God was hovering over the world- over the deep darkness, the void.  What was He hovering and waiting for?  He was waiting for the word of God to be released.  He said, “Let there be light”.  The Spirit of God was the power of God to make it a reality.

Jesus was the word made flesh and when the Spirit came on Him and remained, the Holy Spirit was God’s power to confirm the words with miracles, signs and piercing the heart of His listeners.

In Mark 16:15, 20 Jesus bids them to “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to everyone.”  Verse 20 shows their reply, “They went everywhere and preached and the Lord confirmed the word with many miraculous signs” because as the Father sent Him to be the Word and speak the word, so he sends us to be the word and speak the word.  His word in our mouth becomes as powerful His word in His mouth.

When we look at each person God has made, He spoke a unique word that created that person.  It will never be repeated again in history.  God’s word is eternal therefore each person in our towns, cities and nations is eternal.  They will either live forever in heaven or live forever in hell and God has set eternity in their hearts.  When we preach the Gospel, it is an echo to what they already know.  No matter how hard people want to think otherwise, deep down they know it.

Revival is when the word of God in your mouth is given flight as flaming embers, burning its mark into the hearts of men and eternal lives are saved.  Revival is when He confirms who you say He is with miracles, signs and wonders.  

To Jeremiah and us, the Lord says, “If you will speak good words rather than worthless ones, you will be My spokesman” - meaning he would have the high honor of speaking for the Lord.

We can set our regions on fire by hell or by Heaven for Jesus Christ.  The fire will surely fall either way- but you and I get to choose which fire.

-All for Jesus and for souls,

mountains and shore from prohetic dreamI had a dream I was was over a large body of water near a shore.  Mountains were in the background.  

I was wearing a very long dress that twirled about me for miles.  The dress was translucent, softly rainbowed and made of a spiritual material and wind.  It swirled out fanning the waters.  Beside me ,and also over the water, was Heidi Baker.  She was smiling at me with radiant pleasure.  I felt lost in her delight in me.  

In the next scene, I was riding in the back seat of a car as someone was touring me through Saskatchewan.  I looked around and saw deserts of sand and shrub in many areas.  I wondered at how such a thing could be.  I mentioned to the driver, that the places that had once been pools of water in green fields there were now dry patches with minerals on the ground showing where the water had once been.  I was aghast at how our province of Saskatchewan could be so dry.

In the final scene, I saw myself at a lottery counter with a number of "scratch and win" lottery tickets in front of me.  Beside me were three more from which I was sure there was a winner.  But I had a fear of the Lord upon me and a reverence for His name.  I prayed in my spirit, “No Lord, I can not buy those.  Think of Your name and how I would make it look.”

As I prayed about this dream, I felt it was a dream of revival and Saskatchewan.

Jesus is the word of God, and He said, “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that, he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” (John 20:21 NIV).  The waters represent the masses of humanity.  The mountains represent the Good News (Is 52:7).  As Jesus was in this world, so are we.  We are to be announcing the Good News of the Gospel, the word of God to the masses.  

Heidi Baker represents the Holy Spirit.  She has long flowed in the Holy Spirit with great joy.  She is also known for justice ministry.  In Genesis chapter 1 we see that the word and the spirit work together.  

And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.

Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.  And God saw that it was good.

(Gen. 1:2-3 NLT)

 

What was the Holy Spirit doing as He hovered?  He was waiting for the Word of God to be spoken.  He is the power of God to perform it and make it a reality.  He was confirming the word into existence.

In Mark chapter 16, we see this again because God is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb. 13:5).

And He told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.  And the disciples went everywhere and preached, and the Lord worked through them, confirming what they said by many miraculous signs.  (Mark 16: 15, 20)

As we go out over the waters of humanity, the Spirit of God is delighted to bring hover over those waters to confirm the word into a living reality.  He is waiting with anticipation to make the word and will of God happen on the earth and in the lives of every person He helped create.  

Justice is seeing someone helpless and powerless and helping them.  God wants to help us from Hell to Heaven and to heal our broken bodies.  Physicians are amazing, but sometimes you need a specialist.  And what better specialist is there than the One who created us.  He delights to heal and restore our lives.

In the next scene, I saw Saskatchewan desolate, dry and barren.  There have been places in the body of Christ that once flowed with water, but they have become dry.  God has great concern for us and is releasing a promise over our province.

For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground;I will pour My Spirit upon your offspring and my blessing on your descendants.  (Is. 44:3 NLT)

 

When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst,

I, the Lord,  will answer them; I, the God of Israel will not forsake them.  I will open up rivers for them on the high plateaus.  I will give them fountains of water in the valleys.  I will fill the desert with pools of water.  

Rivers fed by springs will flow across the parched ground.  (Is. 41:17-18)

 

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness for they will be filled. (Matt. 5:6 NIV)

 

We are a province that has welcomed revival both in the 1940’s and the 1970’s and seen our land change.  We are a province that God has marked for Revival Fire again.  He is a generational God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  He is going to release His water and fire over our province, over the regions, over us and our children and descendants.  

Water is indiscriminate.  It will flow to the lowest places, filling it up and it will touch anywhere it is permitted.  

Lastly, we are not gamblers wishing and wanting revival.  If we want God’s Spirit, the Holy Spirit, then we must do exactly what He says to do:

And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.

“You fathers—if your children ask for a fish, do you give them a snake instead?  Or if they ask for an egg, do you give them a scorpion? Of course not!  So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him. (Luke 11:9-13 NLT)

We fear the Lord and follow His word and ask.  He is abundant in His giving.  When Moses asked to see His goodness, the Lord showed him ALL His goodness and allowed it to pass by Moses.  Not some.  All.

Let us seek this wonderful Holy Spirit, let us announce the Good News to others and let us not be gamblers with revival by wishing and waiting, but in the fear of the Lord, let us take responsibility in prayer and call on Him to do exactly what He is wanting to do; Bring a Great Awakening Revival that will bring souls into the Kingdom.

"I will quieten you with my love and rejoice over you with singing." --Zephaniah 3:17

 

Jesus spoke after I had been fighting with my husband.  What I did not realize was how it would revolutionize my heart for evangelism and teach me the Fishy Song!

It was not unusual for me to think the worst of his beautiful heart and accuse him before the Lord intervened that day.  I was sorry, but the damage had been done.  I had wounded him again.  I decided to go outside and sit by the fire pit sans flame.  My shame was hot enough.  While my feet were up, I waited on the Lord and it wasn’t long before He whispered, “You don’t sing in harmony with Me.”  Jesus spoke Zephaniah 3:17 to my mind, “I will quieten you with my love and rejoice over you with singing.”

The scriptures began to knit through my soul as if by a master weaver on a fast moving loom - correcting and teaching as He spoke.

Tyrelle, I spoke words to create your husband, My son.  Out of the abundance of My heart, My mouth spoke.  My heart is pure, powerful, beautiful, wondrous and fully and completely love.  I speak only what is good and declare only what is right (Is. 45:19)  I decided long ago what I wanted My son to be and he is good.  He is the overflow of My heart.   I can not speak anything bad or wrong for there is none of that within My being.  I do not speak anything I do not desire to say.  I have planned every word from the beginning of time and have fashioned countless realities.  Your husband is a treasured word, a treasured name and I rejoice over him.  My word does not return to me void, it is eternal therefore He is eternal and I wanted him forever.  I am not a man that I should lie or the son of man that I should change my mind about him.  I spoke and I acted and I said and I made it good.  I rejoice over the work of my hands.  Sing in harmony with me.

He opened my mind to understand.  His words did not just create the world but also the man I love.  They were perfect words.  And The Lord was singing.

He showed me a melody joined in harmony by another.   When one voice sings out of tune or time, everyone feels it and the beauty is interrupted and everyone who hears it feels the awkwardness of the moment.  But when the song is resumed, the beauty flows once again as it should.

My words and views would come out of my heart and sing a song that was not reflective of the One who had invited me to live a life of harmony with Him.  With the revelation that my husband was words from His perfect heart, I could no longer accuse or show him less value than God who spoke only the words He wanted to create this eternal being.  

It only took moments to realize each person is eternal, created by an eternal Father with eternal words.  They would live eternally in Heaven or eternally in Hell.   When I share Jesus Christ, I carry with me the revelation that they are His living words spoken with love out of the abundance of His heart.  I release His unconditional love  Their walls melt like wax in the presence of the Lord they are quieted in His love.  

As I sing His song with Him, the fishies swim into the eternal nets of Jesus’ arms.   Without love, the song it is nothing.  With His love, it will never fail.  Fishies love the fishy song and I love to sing it.  Here fishy, fishy, fishy!

salvation armyI had a dream that I was walking down the sidewalk in Spring wearing a navy dress and a pair of ice skates.  At first, I stumbled in them, then I said, “Hold on, I’ve been wearing ice skates since I was kid.  I can do this!”  And I could.  I continued to walk to the Salvation Army and walked in and said to the woman running the store, “I need a pair of shoes, but I don’t have any money on me.  Can I pay you later?”  She enthusiastically said, “Absolutely.”  

I walked to the shoe area and found there were so many wonderful shoes.  My eyes were drawn to a brown pair that were made of leather and had a nice sheen to them.  They were like new.  As I put them on, my whole being felt the comfortable brown shoescomfortableness of the shoes.  I have never had such a comfortable pair of shoes and I didn’t even have to break them in. It was like they were made for me.

I wore them out of the store and thought, “I can do anything in these shoes. I can run, I can walk and do whatever I need to do. And they go with everything”

The spring is a season of transition.  It is neither winter where things are dead, cold or quiet. Nor is it like summer which is a season of fullness where things are in its most concrete form.  It is a season where new life springs forth; it is a season of new things and new beginnings.  Expectancy fills us as we delightfully anticipate the next surprise springing up before our eyes.

See I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs ; do you not perceive it?  I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.  Is. 43:19

 

See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone.  Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.  The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance..” Songs 2:10-13

 

The skates represent something you’ve been doing a long time.  You’ve learned to cope but it’s something for an old season.  Skates are not for spring they are for winter but you are in spring.  The old ways of doing things are not going to work!  It’s time for a change particularly in ministry.  God has a new assignment and a new ministry.  

The store belongs to God, you don’t need money.  You need obedience to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.  When the kings puts on a banquet, it is the job of the servants to get the food, not buy it.  The king pays.  Likewise, God is a gentleman.  When He calls and invites you out, He pays.  So you need to step into the assignment and trust for the finance or the provision of materials you will need for the new season.  

The beautiful brown shiny shoes symbolize a number of things.  Brown represents the humility of the cross and Jesus obedience. (Phil. 2).  We need to be humble, particularly in a day where popularity is the measure of success. Shoes are the gospel of peace (Eph. 6:15).  The comfort means that they were made for you.  Your calling and assignments are tailor made for you specifically.  They always fit. When you go into this next season, you will be surprised by the ease.  

Leaving the store I felt like I could do anything.  The body of Christ will have the power of the Holy Spirit. Particularly in the next move of God.  Currently, we are in the beginning stages of Revival and as Holy Spirit is poured out on the surrendered and bowed life, you will be able to do anything.

I asked the Lord, “Why did you send me to the Salvation Army?”  His response was very emphatic, “SALVATION…… ARMY!”  We wake up individually but serve as an army.

Isaiah 53 Isaiah 61. Ps 68:11 an army of women!

Isaiah 53 is a passage that describes all that Jesus did for the world.  He paid for our sin and rebellion.  Sin brings death and sickness is like tiny doses of death that breaks down the body at an accelerated rate.  Sin separates us from God and caused us to lose our position of authority.  It lead to sorrow and a lack of peace with God.  In the payment of sin, all the effects were dealt with at the root.

Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. (Is. 53:4-6)

Jesus, through the cross, dealt with sin and all its’ effects.  Then when He died, He cried out in a loud voice, “Father, into Your hands, I commit My Spirit.” (Luke 23:46).  That word spirit in greek is pneuma which means breath, a breeze, soul, God, Christ’s spirit, the Holy Spirit.  In this case Jesus was giving up His soul and The Holy Spirit which He had received without measure.  Placing it back into God’s hands was so the The Father might pour The Holy Spirit out to each of His children who would come to Him by faith.

When we have this Spirit we are revived and our heart is restored to God, but as our heart is restored to God, it becomes restored to man who is the object of God’s affection.  When Holy Spirit is released we have supernatural power to bring good news to the poor, comfort the brokenhearted and release captives.  Revival from the Holy Spirit looks like something.  It looks like Isaiah 61 playing itself out in our society and reforming it.  

Isaiah 61

 

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me,
for the Lord has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted
and to proclaim that captives will be released
and prisoners will be freed.

2 He has sent me to tell those who mourn
   that the time of the Lord’s favor has come,
   and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies.

3 To all who mourn in Israel,
   he will give a crown of beauty for ashes,
   a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
   festive praise instead of despair.
   In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks
   that the Lord has planted for his own glory.

 

Jeremiah 9:24

Those who wish to boast should boast in this alone:
That they truly know me and understand
that I am the Lord who demonstrates unfailing love
and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth,
And I delight in these things.  I, the Lord, have spoken!

Righteousness and justice are the foundations of His throne and are often linked together in scripture.  Righteousness is what God does for us by giving us the righteousness of Christ and reforming our heart towards Him.  Justice is when we partner with God to bring righteousness into the lives of others, particularly the oppressed.  Revival reforms man's heart to God and then to his fellow man and reformation in society always follows.

Look at these examples below:

When George Whitefield and the Wesley brother released revival in the late 1800’s, William Wilberforce was greatly stirred.  He committed his life to the Lord and abolishing slavery.

After a few decades, revival broke out in North America and Abraham Lincoln was affected powerfully and he set himself to abolish slavery in the United States

John Calvin in Geneva was touched by the Lord and ended up educating the poor so they could read their bibles. This greatly expanded the middle class of society because the poor were able to read and also they were able to do greater exploits because their faith was expanded by the word of God.  

William Booth founded the Salvation Army because he was revived by the Holy Spirit and worked against the white slave trade, served the poor and ended the serving of alcohol to children.

Henry Durant founded The Red Cross because he was awakened by the Holy Spirit and he could not let people lay wounded for days or weeks on the battlefield till they died.  The Red Cross was formed to get them off the battlefield and into care.

We are the new Salvation Army in the springtime of our generation.  We are awakening and reforming.

Confirming Prophetic Moment:  

I received notification that the same day I fly to Nigeria with CFaN with Reinhard Bonnke and traveling participants, is the same day that Don Brewster is confirmed to speak at my online anti-human trafficking school at traffickjam.org.  I train people to serve those rescued from human trafficking in Southeast Asia.  Reinhard Bonnke is an evangelist who has seen over 76 million souls saved through his ministry.  This represents the righteousness with God that is brought about by the Gospel.  Don Brewster is one of the world’s leading ministers of justice.  He serves the world and the Lord from within Cambodia and has reformed an entire region for Christ and healed and restored the broken from their effects of sex-trafficking.  Both men are heroes in the faith.  

My point is this:  God does not separate righteousness and justice.  Psalms 103:6  The Lord works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.  They are always together like a married couple - completing one another.

Bless the Lord

Peace and fire,

elephant in the room women in ministry

Ok, this is going to make you laugh today! The elephant in the room of women's ministry - How we FEEL about women's ministry.

As we all know, Satan is a liar. He is always telling women how hard it is to be a woman in ministry, or how rejected they are. Even if it's true a little bit, he blows it way out of proportion. So one day, I was eating his lies for breakfast and complaining to God UNTIL He said,"Woman, I have given you the largest demographic. What majority goes to the conferences? Buys books, read blogs and hunger for fellowship?" 

"Women," I reply sheepishly. haha.

So, for a lark, I did a little research to help us abandon Satan’s ridiculous pity party and embrace our Wild Womanhood!!!

  • The typical U.S. Congregation draws an adult crowd that’s 61% female, 39% male.
  • On any given Sunday there are 13 million more adult women than men in America’s churches.
  • Midweek activities often draw 70 to 80 percent female participants.
  • Churches overseas report gender gaps of up to 9 women for every adult man in attendance.
  • The typical Christian college in the U.S. enrolls almost two women for every one man.

Internationally, when women respond to the Gospel, it changes the whole community due to her relationships. It changes the way she handles her children, her finances, and her purpose. When she has hope, it gives hope to everyone around her.

As women, many of us are not just CALLED to women. But it is the largest demographic, and we are very blessed to have the opportunity to serve them. We will serve both male and female as the Lord opens the doors.

Satan and rejection will tell you what you don't have instead of what you do have because you threaten him.

So, ferocious and glorious women. No lies for breakfast! Have truth and toast with Jesus and be blessed.

There is no male nor female, Jew or Greek, slave or free- Just souls, Beautiful souls, Eternal souls for Him!!!

Hallelujah!

Yours in the Harvest,

Tyrelle Smith

I had a dream I was walking by the park in my community.  It was a glorious sunny day.  I saw beautiful women in red dresses, very stylish and in a beautiful bright and fresh red color.  The young handsome men had tuxes on and red accents.  The wedding colors were white and red.  It was a public event, anyone could see.

red and white wedding party
Image from http://www.blog.designsinbloom.ca/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/ashley1-062.jpg

In the next scene, I am in an old public bathroom waiting to use one of the stalls.  The bride comes in.  It’s not quite time for the wedding.  She’s wearing a lovely but regular dress, not a wedding dress and holding a glass of wine.  She is in no way drunk but is casually drinking.  She looks at me and says, “I need to use the bathroom, I’m going to be sick.”  

Suddenly, for no reason that I can imagine, I am standing beside her in the stall.  I feel Jesus in me.  She throws up.  I see it all.  She looks at me, and I am suddenly overwhelmed with the unconditional love of Jesus for her.  I can literally feel His love and utter acceptance go through my being.  He is bursting in my chest.

It is embarrassing to throw up in front of someone.  Out of my mouth comes, “It’s going to be okay.”  Our eyes lock and we look intently into each other's eyes.  She seems defeated but safe in my love.  There is no shame in love.  No fear of shame.  I know we are about to embrace and I will hold her in His unconditional love.

The last scene was visiting my Grandmother in her care home.  She walked up to me and said, “When you are older, you will understand why I didn’t tell you how much I loved you when you were younger.”  The nurse came by said it was time to go, but my Grandmother laid her head on my lap and rested.  Then I woke up.

This dream is specific for my community but also for the body of Christ.  I was a bystander in my dream and not the main character but rather seeing it from the outside for others prophetically.  

The Lord is saying that it’s almost time for the wedding of the Lamb to the bride.  The bride is not quite ready, and it’s not quite time just yet for the actual ceremony.  But the ceremony is prepared.  The attendants are ready just as John the Baptist was ready.  He rejoiced saying,

The one who has the bride is the bridegroom. The friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is now complete.  (John 3:29 ESV)  

 

These were a beautiful young group is the church at large, and I believe the millennial generation stands at attendance speaking for Christ to prepare the way, they will also be fiery evangelists.  The red dresses and tuxedo accents are the fresh, beautiful blood of Jesus and the white is His righteousness that He alone can give them.  The event is public because they are unashamed and all are invited to receive Jesus.  

The bride is the unfinished church, the fulness of those God has called is not quite all gathered in yet, and it’s not quite time for her to go to the ceremony, but it’s close.  That’s why she is not in her dress.  There is going to be a wave of the unsaved coming.

The old bathroom represents that she is her old life and old time religion with repentance.  Not a religious spirit, old time good old fashioned repentance is what this signifies. The wine represents the world.  She was in no way drunk but is casual with sin.  But her moment is coming to commit to the groom, and she vomits.  Second Peter 2:22 uses vomit to represent sin.  It is going to be a release of His kindness on the earth, a fruit of His Spirit, that will lead them to repentance.  (Rom. 2:4)

Christ in me sees it all.  He is not shocked or surprised.  He knew in the Garden of Gethsemane, what He was going to die for and what it would look like.  Getting rid of it was His idea.  He doesn’t mind seeing it all come out.

She and Jesus in me lock eyes, and His love takes away the shame.  He bore our shame, naked on a cross.  Sin brings shame.  Adam said,

“I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid” (Gen. 3.10).

He covered up because of sin and shame.  Jesus was uncovered on our behalf, and as He paid for the sin, He has the right to remove the sin and the effect - shame.

His unconditional love in me during the dream and saying everything was going to be okay is to show that His love believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things, bears all things and never fails. (1 Cor. 13)  His love for her was safe.

But one thing God impresses on my heart is that although we may be entering one of the greatest evangelistic movements in human history, we must not forget repentance.  We need to see the sin, the vomit and look that person in the eye.  Let them know what their sin is.  Give them a pause as we lead them to Christ to ponder what sin needs to be forgiven and forsaken through repenting.  You can not just receive Christ or the Holy Spirit.  One must repent,

But He is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. (2 Pet.3:9)

 

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.  (John 3:17 NIV)

 

The word condemn in Greek is krino (Strong’s G2919) and means sentence.  God did not want to sentence the world with a guilty verdict but save it from the sentence.  But to be forgiven, one must first see what they have done and apologize and change their mind about the behavior.  And to receive the Holy Spirit one must repent.

Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38 NIV)

The Grandmother is the Holy Spirit and revealer of truth and wisdom.  He does declare the love of Christ to us but not fully.  One must believe rather than totally experience.  There is a specific blessing reserved for those who “have not seen and yet believe.”  Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.  

This is where the walk of faith begins and trust in discovering God’s wonderful unfailing character.  As one matures, wisdom, truth, and intimacy with God through His wonderful Holy Spirit will come and rest upon us.

So in this upcoming move of God, church, we are attendants to those still coming.  We, like John the Baptist, are announcing this glorious lamb that that takes away the sin of the world.  We are ready to stand by when sin comes up and is ready to be forsaken.  We stand beside them in unconditional love, but we look at it for what it is… sin.  Then we prepare to embrace them in safety.  Jesus said,

As the Father sends me, so I send you. (John 20:21 NLT)

These ones are not sin; sin is what they do.  They are children God made and wants to save and bring home into the Family.

Evangelism and JusticeA ping pong ball goes bounces back and forth across the table batted by two eager paddles vying for victory, only I am the ball.  I bounce daily, weekly and seasonally between two callings; preaching the gospel and justice for those who have been sex-trafficked.  

Isaiah, the prophet, said, “The Spirit of the Sovereign God is upon me because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor, bind up the brokenhearted and set the captives free." (Isaiah 61:1)  The same Spirit that anoints us to share Christ everywhere we go is the same Spirit that also anoints us to set captives free and heal their hearts.

At times, I long to rest quietly at one end of the table, preferably the evangelism end.  If I had to choose a mountain to die on, it would be that one.  Souls safe in their Father’s arms for all eternity and the Father overjoyed to have them within His dwelling.  Forever safe from hell.

But then, those who are living in hell made by man, are ever in the heart of the Father also.  Righteousness and justice are the foundations of His throne.  He gives us His righteousness but then expects us to participate with Him in justice.  Justice is simply this- loving your neighbor as yourself.  Injustice is man participating with Satan and filling the earth with hell.  Malachi the prophet speaks for God saying, “You have wearied the Lord with your words…. By saying….. Where is the God of Justice?”  God is there, but he has given us  the task to:

seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow (Is. 1:17 NRSV)

Am I not compelled to fish for those as well?  

God has given us all that we need to bring justice.  But the thing that stops us most is fear.  Fear of the unknown, fear of a lack of finances, fear that we will be put to shame when we try and fail which we probably will a few times, and fear of not knowing how.  Our God can overcome all of these obstacles, even if we are not.  International Justice Mission describes it this way.  It is like a Father and child who need to bring in the luggage.  The child says, “I can’t carry the heavy ones!”  The Father replies, “Carry in the ones you can, and I will take in the rest.”

And see to it they are also delivered from a horrendous and torturous hell?  I wish I could leave it.  I wish I did not have to do these things in my heart.  But the only other option is disobedience.  I know that we are to serve the Lord with gladness, but the problem is not as thrilling to solve as souls getting saved and angels rejoicing in Heaven over one saved sinner.  But is there really less rejoicing over one trafficked person rescued, healed or delivered?  Of course not.  And this is where our gladness must come from.  The joy of making God joyful at one little girl rescued, or one bonded slave or shrimp fisherman set free.  Is it not also salvation?

First Thessalonians 5:23,24 remind us that God wants to set us apart spirit, soul, and body.  Jesus died for our souls to be healed, our spirit to come alive and our body to be healed.  Isaiah 61 also describes the anointing and gospel is for the body to set captives free, the spirit to be alive through the preaching of the good news and the soul to be bound up and healed after it’s been broken.  Physical freedom is the salvation of body and ought not to be separated from the gospel of Jesus Christ.

So it must be that I and many others will ping and pong across the table between the paddles of preaching the good news and setting the captives free.  I must remove the net dividing the table.  There is only one wonderful saving gospel of Jesus Christ, and it is for the whole tri-part person, and it is a joy to play the table.

Which cause are you drawn to the most in your life?

“I still have many things  to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.  When the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you into all truth.” (John 16:12-13 ESV)

 

Interestingly, Jesus did not promise that we would be catchers of men but fishers of men!  This is an important concept if we are going to understand what success is.  There are times when we catch and times when we wait in the boat with our Father just like when we were kids.  The catching is exciting and the waiting difficult. But the worst day fishing with your dad is still better than a regular day not fishing.

Last week I was at a hospital with one of my kids.  I needed to fill a prescription for him for a tooth infection.  While I was handing over the doctor’s note to the pharmacist, a young man sat down.  He was red-faced from crying.  I felt Jesus move with compassion inside me.  His heart ached for the young man.  So, I asked the young man, “Are you okay?” and he responded emphatically that he was not.

I sat down immediately and put my arms around him and hugged him tightly.  He hugged me back hard and cried.  I rubbed his back and mothered him, telling him everything was going to be okay.  I knew this to be true because I sensed the Holy Spirit say so.  I asked his name and shared mine. We had the same last name which was perfect for mothering.  His story began to spill out that he had received an incurable infection from his partner which also revealed that his partner had been unfaithful.  He was completely devastated.

I said, “Sweetie, if I threw a twenty dollar bill on the floor and stepped on it, how much would it be worth at the till?”

He replied, “Twenty dollars.”

“Right!  What if I crumpled it, or spat on it?  What would it be worth at the till?”

He said, “Twenty dollars.”

People are still valuable when they are mistreated.

God’s Spirit began to reach him with truth, “Sweetie, your worth and value does not change based on how others treat you, by your mistakes in judgment or sin. You worth is based on the fact that God made you and loves you very much.  This is non-negotiable.  Value is also based on two other things.  First, is rarity.  There has never been another one of you or ever will be ever again.  You are rare and valuable and the only representation of God’s image in this particular likeness to be on the earth in history.  Secondly, worth is based on what someone is willing to pay for it.  Honey, you were paid for with blood.  Jesus’ blood.  He died for your sins so that you could live forever with Him and your Heavenly Father by removing the offending sin between you.  Do you know who Jesus is?”

“Yes, my whole family prays.”  I was surprised and yet not.  So much compromise has filled the church and the world. Never before had I wanted to set everything in order in one short conversation.  I wanted to put every puzzle piece of life in place with one short conversation.  After all, this was wrong.  I knew the answers-I could fix this!  But God’s precious Spirit reminded me of a conversation I recently had with a friend.  She told me of a new believer she knew had been attending church for about 6 months and one day rushed into the pastor's office aghast at a new revelation from God’s word saying, “Pastor, did you know that pornography is wrong?”  To the pastor’s credit, he kept his face passive and welcoming, “Yes, actually I did.  Tell me how you came to find this out”

With shock he said, “I was reading my bible and the Holy Spirit pointed out the verse that to look at a woman lustfully was the same as committing adultery so I asked my wife if that’s how she felt when I watched porn and she told me yes!  I can’t look at porn now! That’s wrong!” (Matt 5:28)

The pastor was pleased, to say the least!  This is a picture of where things are at right now in society.  Like Nineveh - some do not know their right hand from their left.  But God is still moving by His Holy Spirit, leading people into all truth, even on things we think they know but don’t.

This story flashed through my mind, I knew that the Holy Spirit was saying that this young man was traumatized and would not be able to receive correction about his choices.  Today he was bleeding out and Jesus wanted to stop it and keep this young man from making the ultimate decision to end his life due to the pain, hopelessness and confusion he was experiencing.

God reminded me also of Jesus who said to His own disciples, “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.  When the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you into all truth.” (John 16:12-13 ESV) Even Jesus could not put all the puzzle pieces together when He wanted to.  He had to leave it to the Holy Spirit for later when they could bear it.

God had this same strategy for the young man and I said, “Sweetie, you have a lot of decisions to make based on what has happened and you will need to put some boundaries in place based on your worth and value.  You also need to get back into God’s word.  It will help with your new decisions and know the Lord better.  But before you even open your bible, ask the Holy Spirit to come and teach you the word.”  He agreed and cried as I held him in God’s consoling love.  I knew that his life was safe and God would begin to move on His word to show this young man the right way to go, away from premarital sex and homosexuality.

We prayed together for his life and then God spoke to my heart, “He hasn’t been to church for a long time.”  So I said, “Honey, God says you haven’t been in church for a long time.  It’s time to go back.”  I had to trust the Lord that he would one day walk into a pastor’s office declaring that he knew what was right and wrong because of God’s Holy Spirit.

I wanted to lead him in a recommitment prayer.  I wanted to tell him so much and put all the pieces into the right places and fix everything at once.  I hated not having the conversation I really wanted to have.  But I love Holy Spirit and His wisdom and timing.  I had to wait until he could bear it.  Love is patient and kind.  It believes and it endures, even the waiting.

Today fishing was not catching.  Today fishing was waiting for the fish to be a little hungrier, a little more ready.  Today, fishing with My Father in Heaven was waiting in the boat and loving.  One day soon, another fisher of men will come and that fish will be ready.  Today, waiting in the boat with My Father was still better than a day doing anything else.

Every evangelist thrives on the rush of adrenaline that comes with the gusting wind of the Holy Spirit snaps our sails and suddenly we are moving toward the fish God is prepared for us to catch.

I recently went into a shop and saw a young lady. I immediately felt the love of Jesus crash over my soul and I smiled!  I began to pray because 2 Corinthians 4:4 says, “The god of this age (the devil) has blinded their hearts and minds from receiving the true light of the gospel.”  I bind the enemy from influencing her and I call on the Lord to release Holy Spirit to declare Jesus Christ and lead and guide her into all truth!  

I feel His pleasure as I ask Him to draw her to Jesus!  He began to radiate His pleasure in this precious one He created.  I sensed Him picking her up on His lap and before I knew it, her story began to unfold and Jesus and I were doing my favourite thing in the whole world-fishing!

Laced within her story, we're gorgeous F-bombs, S-bombs and other four letter words.  I could feel my Father beaming with joy over her value, nodding His appreciation over His handiwork, nodding as if to say, “Do you see her?  Isn’t she amazing?”  To which my soul nods in smiling agreement, “Oh Yeah!” and like any true fisherman, I added, “She’s a beauty!”

 

Soon she begins asking me all about God and how she can know Jesus. She'd been googling how to "Do this God thing right. After all, it's like a marriage!” She said, “This is a lifetime commitment, ya know!?!”  

Ya, I did know. It was at lifetime commitment that caused me to keep my sails up and ready, because my God turns fish into sheep and sheep into lions.  But always – the fish come first!

She continue to talk and her speech continue to be peppered with still more four lettered words – my favourite words!  $&@#!  

You see, when you’re catching a fish and it's coming out of its life in the water it gasps as it changes environments and atmospheres. It's body flips, flops and fights indicating it's need saying, “Help, I need something here, something is wrong! I'm hurting, I'm dying!”

The four letter words are indicators of what is impacting them as they enter the atmosphere change of our God’s affirming, loving and peaceful presence. They are safe enough to indicate their struggle and that they are simply fighting for life. The authenticity in their language shows me where the Holy Spirit wants to touch, restore, forgive, heal or change. He releases His wisdom and declares who Christ is and can be in their life because He intends to release love into their gasping and desperate being.

In only moments, when they surrender to being caught in the loving nets of Christ – they are changed into sheep by the Lord and they soon breathe with new life in the atmosphere they were meant to as sheep!

He loves fish, He loves sheep and has destined even these gasping, four letter word spewing fishies to one day become a glorious lions who will expand His territory through his authority, power and love to other gasping and writhing fish. They will stand there one day with the Lord like I am, smiling and saying like a true fisherman "Yeah! She's a beauty!”

I love fishing!  So does He!  What a day!

15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ

                                                --Romans 8:15-17(NKJV)

Faith works through love.  When you know that you are loved unconditionally, it will help you to believe all things, endure all things, hope all things because love never fails.  Love is a person.  God is love.  We love God because we are first loved by Him.  How many of us enjoy building friendship with people who liked us first and pursued us.  We continue to grow in our love, affection and commitment to them based on their love for us and we return that same love back to them.  Our faith in them works through the love we have for them and them for us.

I want to invite you to discover you great worth today to someone who has pursued you from eternity past right through to your eternity future.  When you grasp this, your heart will sing a new song.  It’s titled “I’m so loved!”

When your Father in Heaven imagined you with His perfect and limitless imagination, He knew He just had to have you.  When He could think of nothing more beautiful, creative, intuitive, intelligent, powerful and sovereign than Himself, He fashioned you in His image.  You are literally a chip off the old block.  The chip is the same as the large block it was chipped from.  No different.

It was a like Father, like Son moment.  Image in Hebrew (H6754 tslem), means phantom and conveys that when Adam and Eve walked in the Garden, creation saw a phantom image of God and basically did a double take!  They would have said, “Hey there’s God walking in the Garden. Oh wait, that’s Adam.”  That’s literally what image meant.  You were an exact representation of His being, just like Jesus, that is before the fall. You were created from the best possible template.  God- Love!  Whoa, right?

So He spoke you into being.  God’s words, we know are eternal, that is why we have an eternal destiny and live forever.  Where we live eternally is up to us.

But in order to be truly created in His image you and I needed to be sovereign as well.  So, God gave us a free will.  He’s got one too.  And He knew what you and I would do with it.  Sin.  The wage of sin is death and whoever commits sin, becomes a slave to it.  Alarming isn’t it?  Why would God create you and I if He knew we would sin?  Because He wanted kids who could love Him back by choice.  We want kids so we can enjoy them for our whole lives and God has kids so He can enjoy them for His whole life.  And that’s eternity!  The thought of having you not having a will to love back but be a robot was not an option for Him.   Having you in eternal death and separated was not an option either so here comes the awesome plan.  Being adopted!

Paul used the beautiful picture of Roman adoption to explain to every believer in Rome about their brand new salvation!  Everyone in that day would have been like, “Whoa!  That’s what this is like? Thank you Jesus!  Thank you Father!”  father son roman adoption

In Roman law an affluent adult man who wanted an heir would adopt a male, often a slave to be his son.  This was common because there were a lot of Roman soldiers who did not marry among other reasons.

Adoption was one of the few ways a slave could come into something called the Patria Potestas.  That is greek for The Power of the Father.  The man adopt one that was currently in his house or he could go to the slave market and purchase a slave. Here is where it gets amazing!!!

Colossians 1:13 says that He has delivered us from the powers of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption the forgiveness of sins.  The word redemption actually means purchased from the slave market of sin, never to be sold again.

The purchase price was death and blood.  Jesus was the exact representation of the Father (Heb. 1:13).  Good Fathers, if they have an ounce of love in their hearts for their kids, would die for them.  So as Jesus died for sin, it was to represent to you what the Father would do.  Doesn’t this give new meaning to the verse in 1 Pet. 1:18-19.  You were not purchased with perishable things such as silver and gold but with the precious blood of Jesus.  

When the price was paid, you and I were freed from the authority we were under - bondage to sin, fear, death, Satan’s power and legal dominion in our lives.  He who the Son sets free is free indeed (John 8:36).

Next the one who purchased the slave would go to the magistrate who would ask the Father if He wanted to adopt the slave as a son and He must say “Yes”.  Then he would ask the slave, “Do you permit it to be so?”

He had to say, “I permit it be so.”  Seven witnesses were required to be present.  The reason for this was, it would be easy for a few people to say the adoption never took place, that the new son was not free and had no inheritance.  But it was impossible to get 7 people to agree to do that.  The Holy Spirit is the Sevenfold Spirit of God.(Revelation 1:4)  Cool eh?  

Rom 8: 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ

Take a look at what the slave would deal with and contrasted with the son.

 A Slave                                                                                    An Adopted Son

Considered illegitimate The possession of the Father John 1:12.  Whoever believes in Jesus has the right, (magistrate and jurisdiction and super human) to be called a child of God
Without honor The Adopted Son was expected to bring honor to the family name and legacy.  By this my Father is glorified that you bear much fruit.
Heavy labour A son was free but served the Father, the Family.  Come to me and all you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest.  Matt 11:28
Sexually exploited or beaten.  Under the dominion of a task master In Christ we go from being powerless and harassed by the enemy to being in under the power of the Father.
Considered to be without family In Christ, we are in The Family of God and are members of His body.  We are accepted in the beloved.  Eph 1:9
No access to the Father For through Him we have access to the Father by the Spirit.  Eph 2:18

We approach the Father with boldness and confidence Eph. 3:12

Must give access to the family resources.  God does not deal in “requirements”  It is His good pleasure to give us the Kingdom.

Must give affection.  The Father loves you even as He loves His Son Jesus.  John 17:22

Indebted Col 2:14 Jesus paid our debt and removed the handwriting that was against us.

The son lost all rights to His previous life.  Romans 6:11 Reckon yourselves dead to sin and alive to God.  

The old life has lost all rights legally to the adoptee.  Satan is not allowed to speak to you about your old life or condemn you.  Your old life has literally been wiped out by the magistrate and you have lost to right to even discuss it with the enemy.  It has ceased to exist.  You are now, before the magistrate a different person with a different identity.

 No influence of the father The Father has same control of Patria Potestas, the Power of the Father over the adoptee as the natural son including property, acquisitions, controlling relationships, having the rights to discipline.  Heb. 12:5-8

The Father was liable

for sons actions.  Each owed duties to each other.  The Father: gave name, protection, status and inheritance.  Son owed honor the name and legacy.  Matt 16:15 Go into all the world and preach the gospel- making more children of God

No rights Adopted son has the same rights and a natural born son.  That’s why it says in the word that we are seated in Heavenly places in Christ and we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing.

The adopted son had one advantage over the natural born son.  Every person living in Rome would have understood this as Paul shared.  A natural born son could be disowned but the adopted son never could be.  

When did all this become possible?  Even before the foundation of the world the lamb was slain.  Rev. 13:8

For God so loved you and the whole world that whoever believed in Him would not perish but have everlasting life.  John 3:16.    When? Before He created you and me.  We were predestined to adoption and blessed with every spiritual blessing in Heavenly places.

You have not received the spirit of slavery again that you should be in fear, but the Spirit of adoption.  You are in the power of the Father and fully endorsed to live from the place of a son or daughter in His house to be the exact representation of His being, once again, with exactly the same mandated as Jesus our brother.

Jesus did it all and says to you today,

As the Father sends Me, so I send you.  Receive the Holy Spirit.  And He breathed on them.   

All authority in heaven and earth has been given to Me, therefore Go into all the world.  Matt. 28:18-20

Heal the sick raise the dead and cast out devils.  Matt. 10:8

Be blessed today brothers and sister in the Lord.  Represent Him everywhere you  go!
