By Sandy Cwach, Editor

This book is a compellation of the first year’s newsletters written by Dottie McElreath. It has been my privilege to be the first to read each month’s teaching as Dottie writes it. I proof read it and print it for our monthly newsletter directed primarily at other ministries. The teaching value of the letters has been for both Dottie and I first and all other mature Christians second. For everyone who is trying to follow God’s will for their lives.

If you are a brand new Christian or even a person who has been in church all your life and not yet been given a vision of your ministry, rest assured you have a ministry to do. It might be just doing a job for a company the best way you know how and as you prosper your tithes and gifts into the ministries that feed you spiritually will be what God has called you to do. Every person is loved by God and needed in the body of Christ! God has revealed many mysteries in the bible this first year of teachings so read carefully with an open mind and let Him minister to you. My prayer for you is that you receive as much of a blessing reading this collection of newsletters as I did in printing them.


Introduction

This book was born as a result of the Holy Spirit urging me to write an encouraging letter to the people who had cared and nurtured me when I was a baby in Christ. Then, every month, His Spirit would reside on me with the urge to write. Many times I would write and be taught as I wrote.

We realized after a time that God was taking us on a journey into Himself and He intended that others in His family would join with us to step through the veil of mystery surrounding the patriarchs, prophets, disciples and Himself.

I trust in the Holy Spirit to be with you and guide you as you step "Beyond the Veil."

I would at this time like to express my love and appreciation for my best friend, besides Jesus, who has stayed with me, held my hand, stayed my doubts, and become my buffer from the world as many people reacted to their beliefs being seen under God's light.

Sandy Cwach is a friend that surpasses all others and without her this book would not be. Everyone who dares to dream the impossible dream needs to have a Sandy like my Sandy.

May God bless you with such a one as this.


Encouragement

I feel a need for encouragement and a spirit of thankfulness. This is a time to look back to what has happened in my life, as it was then and what is now and for what it will be. You know, as we look back on our spiritual walk with God, there is an encouraging spirit that pervades your soul, for you can truly see the times he has carried you through bad times when you saw no way out. Let us go a little deeper and analyze why and how we got through those times.

Where were you when God looked upon you? Were you worthy of such a look? No? Well I wasn't either.

Moses reminded his people of where they had been and in that reminding you know he had to wonder, why them and he had to wonder often, why me, to guide such an unruly group? " I was a murderer and you chose me, Lord. Why?" Can't you hear him?

Haven't you disqualified yourself also? It's a good thing God did the choosing, right? God’s can see something inside of us that we are not aware of and he calls that spirit forth in his time. Amen.

So, how far have you come? How many spiritual miles have you walked? How many encouraging words made those miles easier? How many times did other fellow walkers carry your burdens? How many times did you carry their burdens to the Lord in prayer. How many times did God answer those prayers or give grace sufficient for the need? How much do you value your brothers and sisters? Tell them, they need to know.

In encouraging our brothers and sisters we can give them the knowledge that they are appreciated in all they do.

We can look back and we encourage ourselves. Okay. Where are we now? Are we on the mountain or are we circling it? Are we where he wants us to be? Are we sitting down on God or with God.

Even if you know your leaders are walking with God they still need you for it is mighty responsibility to stand in place as a spiritual leader over the sheep that God has entrusted to you. Ask any spiritual leader if they feel a tremendous responsibility towards God and the people and if they are doing what God has told them to do they will tell you YES. It is an honor to have God trust you and you pray daily that he holds you in his hands so you don’t make a mistake with his lambs so hold them in your prayers and tell them how much they mean to you by doing the job that God gave them to do.

Deuteronomy 1:38 But Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he shall go in thither: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.

Moses told them to encourage their leader, Joshua. Moses had been discouraged many times and Joshua had helped him carry the load. Joshua was now going to lead and Moses knew that his load would be heavy. If Moses needed someone to help why would we not think our ministers, pastors, teachers, preachers, and others that are charged by God to watch over us would need us to hold them up to God’s hands?

Deuteronomy 3:28 But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see.

Moses told them to strengthen him for he goes before the people and he shall cause them to inherit the land. How do you strengthen your leaders? Through prayer. If your spiritual leaders are causing you to inherit the land, then keep them in your prayers.

Are you not a spiritual leader before your friends and families? Do you not get weary of the load, of course, you do. Our prayers are to be directed to strengthen our brothers and sisters in the Lord.

Where are you going? That one is easy. You are going deeper into the things of God. You are not going to be disobedient to your calling. You have looked back and built your faith for you've encouraged yourself. You know where you've walked and you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are in the plan of God.

I walk through my memory of where many people were when I met them and how much stronger I see them now and I praise God for them for without them I wouldn't have walked as far or sustained as few injuries as I have. I lift them up before the Lord for a strengthening in their bodies , in their minds, and in their spirits. I ask that they continue in their spiritual journey, the goal is the vision that God gave them for their life.

I pray that they continue to serve Him, they are doing more than they will know in this lifetime.

Discouragement is from Satan, when you feel it coming on, or you feel depression coming on, serve God as He has called you to do. That will be your way of resisting Satan and he will flee, your discouragement or depression will disappear.

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Revelation 22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen!

To walk with God is a privilege and a blessing. It is never dull as He shows you delights in the spirit that truly feeds you. May God hold all of the ones who held me when I was a fragile spiritual baby in the Lord for I truly appreciate each and every one of them. Encourage your leaders for God may soon call you also to join the ranks of his elect. If you serve God he will make use of you to the extent that you will let him. You are the one who sets the boundary as to how far you will go in serving him. Your lifetime is all the time you are allotted on earth. Don’t waste a single day in doing what God has called you to do. Some people will only pass through your lifetime once so be ready if God asks you to do something for that person. Maybe an encouraging word or a caution that they are straying off the path. Smooth the path when possible and never forget to be thankful for your fellow travelers. Until I meet you in the spirit I ask God to hold you in a hug from me.


What If Your Adversary is God?

What if your adversary is God? If it's God why would He afflict you? If after examination you find it is God who you fight, how do you stop fighting and just let God reign? Hard questions right? Amen!

1 Kings 11:14 And the LORD stirred up an adversary unto Solomon, the Edomite: he was of the king's seed in Edom.

He raised up an adversary because Solomon went after other gods (idols). An idol is anything more precious to you than God, even if only momentarily. I can flower it with fancy words, but that's the gist of it. In this case, he raised up a man. How many men (or women) do you know who are regular thorns in your side?

Lamentations 1:10 The adversary hath spread out his hand upon all her pleasant things: for she hath seen that the heathen entered into her sanctuary, whom thou didst command that they should not enter into thy congregation.

He spread adversity upon all her pleasant things because she has allowed the heathen to pollute the temple.

Mark 7:15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.

Jesus said it was not what entered a man that defiled him, but what came out. What comes out of you? Are your words defiling your temple or are they giving life.

You can curse your life or bless it, the choice is yours. Your words go before you and you will walk them out.

Lamentations 4:12-15
{12} The kings of the earth, and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy should have entered into the gates of Jerusalem.
{13} For the sins of her prophets, and the iniquities of her priests, that have shed the blood of the just in the midst of her,
{14} They have wandered as blind men in the streets, they have polluted themselves with blood, so that men could not touch their garments.
{15} They cried unto them, Depart ye; it is unclean; depart, depart, touch not: when they fled away and wandered, they said among the heathen, They shall no more sojourn there.

The punishments were on the church for the sins of her prophets and the iniquities of her priests that have shed the blood of the just.

We have the idea that we don't have to walk as holy as the priests and prophets of old. I tell you this day that you are priests unto God now and as such you are accountable. Where they encountered physical death you are playing with spiritual death. God has not changed, only his contract with us has changed.

Amos 3:10-11
{10}For they know not to do right, saith the LORD, who store up violence and robbery in their palaces.
{11} Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; An adversary there shall be even round about the land; and he shall bring down thy strength from thee, and thy palaces shall be spoiled.

They know not to do right who store up violence and robbery in their places. The adversary shall be in the land and bring down strength.

Is your spiritual strength declining? Check up time! Have you spoken against your brothers in the body and have you accepted praise that belonged to God? If you have accepted praise for something that God brought about or a talent He gave you, oops, you committed robbery.

Lamentations 2:4 He hath bent his bow like an enemy: he stood with his right hand as an adversary, and slew all that were pleasant to the eye in the tabernacle of the daughter of Zion: he poured out his fury like fire.

Remember if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and call upon my name, I will heal their land and I shall dwell in the midst of them. If there is repeated pollution in the temple, He may take away the tabernacle (His presence) that is in the midst of you.

Isaiah 30:20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:

This describes the bread of adversity and the waters of afflictions. You eat your troubles and you drink of your sicknesses. These are your teachers. Many times troubles teach you peace and sickness teaches you patience. Many times a person does not mend their ways until they are facing death. Let not this have to happen to make you change your ways or the ways of your loved ones.. Before these come upon you ask God for help to straighten out your life. How do you get back right with God. Examine carefully:

2 Chronicles 15:2 And he went out to meet Asa, and said unto him, Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; The LORD is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.

God is with you if you seek Him, but if not, no peace is in your coming in or your going out. Even if you just take time to tell him you love him he will be with you in all times.

May you seek the Lord always in all things.


My People Perish Without a Vision

From Abraham to Jacob to Samuel to Nathan to Isaiah to Daniel to Ananias to Saul to Cornelius to Peter to Paul and, yes right on down to you, God has given visions, also called a word, to his people. The problem now is that we have a nation or world that is afraid to believe that God will do as he says he will. If the vision doesn't happen quickly then we have a tendency to not put faith in a word from the Lord or we put it on a back burner so to speak for someday in the future and it seems that if you regard not the vision, or word, or prophecy then it is not important to you. Many times I have seen people receive a prophecy and pass it off as wishful thinking and by not giving God the prominent position that a life devoted to him would require for the vision to come to pass, they in effect lose their vision. This is no reflection on God but it is on us. Have we come to be so unstable in God that he can no longer talk to us and be believed by us? I think for the majority of God's people this is the case.

Our churches seem to be struggling to stay in the anointing and the statement has been said if God so wills it we will have a move of the spirit. Well God is wanting us to wake up and sound the alarm. The fire of God is leaving us,, people. Our watchmen are not on the wall. Our prophets are ashamed to speak out what God has given them.

Job 33:14-18
{14} For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.
{15} In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;
{16} Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,
{17} That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.
{18} He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

God speaks in the night to His people and men perceive it not. He seals our instruction. The visions are to withdraw us from what we plan to do into His plans. This keeps our soul from the pit and saves our life. Job says that there is a messenger - one among a thousand to show man his uprightness. This messenger prophecies deliverance.

Isaiah 22:1-5
{1} The burden of the valley of vision. What aileth thee now, that thou art wholly gone up to the housetops?
{2} Thou that art full of stirs, a tumultuous city, a joyous city: thy slain men are not slain with the sword, nor dead in battle.
{3} All thy rulers are fled together, they are bound by the archers: all that are found in thee are bound together, which have fled from far.
{4} Therefore said I, Look away from me: I will weep bitterly, labour not to comfort me, because of the spoiling of the daughter of my people.
{5} For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity by the Lord GOD of hosts in the valley of vision, breaking down the walls, and of crying to the mountains.

Isaiah says a prophet carries a burden when he carries a vision for the people. A vision breaks down walls.

God has appointed different offices within the church and we all know what they are, preachers, prophets, teachers, pastors, bishops and helps ministries. So why isn't it working like it’s supposed too?

Because we are not taking God seriously. If God has shown you in a vision or told you in a prophecy what He has for you and you've told people and they've put this down.

Zechariah 13:4-6
{4} And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:
{5} But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.
{6} And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.

Has your ministry been wounded by well meaning friends? Your hands or the work of your hands represents your ministry. The gifts of prophecy have been taught out of the church so our watchmen are not watching. His vision is disregarded and we stumble in the dark. Does what we say make God any less God. If you've disregarded what He's given you, no wonder you have lost your direction. He's not going to give you a new vision until you work towards what He's already given you. He may reinforce it but He does not take it back.

Habakkuk 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Many people have similar visions For example:

Acts 9:10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.

Acts 9:17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.

Acts 16:9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.

But we keep our vision to our selves. Why?

Zechariah 13:6 And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.

We've been told that people can pray against your vision. So, can they stop God? Can an ant stop an elephant?

It doesn't depend on anybody but you whether you live in your vision or walk off and leave it. If you're a watchman on the wall and you're not doing your job how many people have spiritually died because you neglected your job? Read Job 32-36 to see how Elihu was given a word by God for Job. Many times God gives you a vision or word and tells you what you need to do to bring this about and we don't hold up our end of it.

From Abraham all the way to now there are requirements for serving God and enjoying His blessings. Are we blocking His blessings for us? Yes, he creates all the things in this world for our enjoyment. All the beautiful sights were not made for Him, they were made for us. So, since everything is owned by Him is it not sensible to serve and be with this great Creator?

Share your vision. He already has people around you with similar visions. Write it down and check it regularly. See how close you've come and add new visions that expand as you change your will to make way for God's will in your life. Don't just go through life accepting whatever comes. Let God clear out your pathways and change you to walk in His plans instead of you trying to fit Him into your plans.

You'll find that what God has in store for you is much bigger and touches more people then you can now imagine. Share your vision with others, as, others just might be seeing the same thing. Pray and agree with others and remember to holding out the hand of a sister to another brother or sister so God will bless you in your ministry, your family, your finances, and your health.

I feel the need to give you the vision that prompted this message. He showed me Christian people struggling to walk up a steep path and He showed me the babies on their backs similar to the way an Indian mother carries her baby. Some of these babies were shadowy images and some were crippled. Very few were healthy babies. The ones that were healthy were walking beside their parent. I ask for understanding in this and He showed this about visions. Many times I've had dreams about babies in different stages of development and I didn't understand it , but now I do. You are given a gift as a baby and you may dream of feeding a baby, feeding your spiritual baby or your baby dying when you gave up and walked away in the spirit.

The vision must be nurtured as a precious baby and God will make it grow and change things around you to accommodate the vision as you grow to walk in it. It takes on a life of its own and soon begins to carry you. I urge you to revive your vision and to share with others and encourage them in their walk because together we are a mighty army and the love of God binds us together and we cannot be defeated if we have a vision.

I ask God to bind Satan's influence off your ministry and to loose you and set you free in Christ Jesus.

Amen! Amen!


The Good Samaritan

This last year there has been a shaking in the ministries and there have been a lot of people hurt and many people have left their churches and people are wondering what's happening.

Well the wheat is being separated from the chaff. This is not the same as the tares. The tares are people masking as sons of God and their actions are revealing them as what they are because of the pressure that God's exerting on them. We expected this but we didn't expect all the hurt that has happened within the body of Christ. By this I mean the people we know are doing the very best they know how to do and still, they've been hurt this year.

A kernel of wheat is a complete compact unit that is wonderfully made. In its infancy it is very delicate but as it matures it changes color. It then can be made into bread and replanted for a reproduction process. A Christ like person can be used over and over again. They can teach as manna to bring life and they reproduce other Christ like persons but in each case they must give their all. If they hold back from God then they must need to go through the process of growing all over again until their will becomes God's will and they are obedient, as good sons must be.

The chaff is excess baggage that we all have. It is tradition, superstition, pride, habits, prejudices, etc.

See, we all have it but shaking it off we just don't do. Our excuses range from, "I've always done it this way," to, "I don't know how to change the way I am."

God reveals problems in our lives by either revealing them to us or revealing them to others. Many times the people that our problems are revealed too have the anointing to either talk to us about our problems or take it to God in prayer and sometimes they do one or the other and sometimes they turn against us because of our weakness.

This year has been hard because of these revealings. I've seen a side of people that I didn't know existed and my instinct is to stay away from them so I won't get hurt and this is wrong of me and it's wrong of you too.

God reveals this to us so it can be corrected not punished.

We are all in this together as a family and we can stand up for each other or we can all fall together. Sit down and make a list of all the people who have let you down or hurt your feelings or hurt someone you know or have just been themselves and can't help it. Take it to God in prayer and forgive them. Forgiving others brings forgiveness to us and if you take these problems with you into the new year you are still holding chaff in your heart and stopping the blessings that God has in store for you for the coming year.

We are all our brothers keepers, if we see our brother hurting and we don't want to get involved whether it's physical or spiritual and we walk away, then we are no better than the priest or the Levite. Jesus used this parable to show us that these were His people called by His name, this means us. This certain man is you and this certain priest is you and this holy man (Levite) is you. We all play different parts in this life and how much of what you say and what you do depends on you. You can talk the talk but walking the walk is hard to do all the time. We each have a vulnerable area of our life and we all need each other.

I can't make it without you and maybe I can help you make it through. If we each put a hand down to help a brother up, it may very well be that the brother we help in a round about way is ourselves. I can now look forward to the next year with an expectant heart because I am using this last year as a stepping stone.

Come on, step up. Explore in the spirit where you have before said “I wish God would use me in that way”, maybe he’s waiting on you to want this enough to shake off the chaff and be a grain of wheat to be planted for other wheat to sprout from.

I will tell you the vision that preceded this. I saw a huge field of wheat where the wind made waves in the wheat. From a distance it looked like the ocean in yellow. There was a pathway through the wheat and I walked down. As I looked down at the wheat closest to the pathway I saw a face in the top of the wheat like a sunflower surrounding a small face. There were different heights on faces but each turned to follow the sun on its trip across the sky. A voice spoke and said “Harvest Time for my people”. I felt so blessed by seeing this and the field was so beautiful.

I ask for the blessings of love and peace that comes with eternal salvation to be in your households and I apply the blood to the doorposts of your houses in Jesus Name. May a reconciliation between families both spiritual and physical be resolved and forgiven this day. I apply the Balm of Gilead to all the bruises and command healing to begin this day in Jesus Name!


Male or Female, We Are the Bride of Christ

This is the start of a New Year and I have wondered about this New Year, as I’m sure you have. I was looking for a prophecy that would really be outstanding and something that would change people's lives and no one came forth with one so I thought God was not telling us what he was going to do. Possibly most people couldn't care less, but I want to know what God is doing and what direction He's going in. Why? Because if I don't know, I might miss Him in my life. If I lose direction I'm wasting precious time that I could be using in what God would have me do.

He began talking to me in a way he has not in a long time. Generally he feeds me thoughts or songs or pictures in my head but he talked to me very solemnly about this New Year and he revealed spiritual earthquakes that may also manifest in the physical.

He said that there were twelve mysteries in the bible that would be revealed this year. These are mysteries that have been hidden from man. We have had a veil placed over our minds that was placed there by God.

Isaiah 25:7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations.

Luke 23:45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

2 Corinthians 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ.

This year there are brothers and sisters that are going to go beyond the veil into the Holy of Holies and the knowledge that will be revealed will be life changing. I, at this time, do not know beyond the first one and I can see so clearly in my own life how this first one played a part in my life. Many people knew part of what this was, but now we shall know in full.

If you do not have time to finish this now then set it aside until you can sit and be ministered too.

When God revealed this mystery and said to write it down I questioned him. I told him that people wouldn't like this and they might call and tell us, "Don't send anymore news letters to us", and He asked me, "Who are you doing this for, me or you?" I replied, "For you." He said that He would be with the ones that He needed to understand this now and that in time all would come to this understanding.

Every person who comes into Christ and receives Him, He dwells within this person, be he male or female physically. He is in your spirit and manifested in your ministry.

Ephesians 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

Ephesians 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

When a word is coming from God it is coming from the inner man be it from a man or a woman. The woman represents our will our carnal selves our identity and the submission of our will to our husband in the physical is mirrored is the spiritual.

Many men have trouble with the idea of being a bride of Christ and I can understand this but when you realize what the female represents, it is much easier to submit your will. When the Holy Spirit rises up within you. You have submitted unto His will and the marriage of the spirit has taken place. The ones invited to the feast can then eat the resultant word from God.

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the savior of the body.

Ephesians 5:24-27
{24} Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
{25} Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
{26} That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
{27} That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Ephesians 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Colossians 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Colossians 3:9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

The old man spoken of here is your life before you came to Christ.

Colossians 3:10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him;

Only by obedience can you hear the Holy Spirit and His power is manifested through you when your will is submissive unto Him. I have been in many services where I heard the old man speak and I have heard the woman speak it matters not what body it inhabited. I want only to hear, I thirst only to hear the voice of the bridegroom no matter the earthly vessel it abides in.

John 3:29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: , which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

When you see tears on the faces of the biggest, strongest man it is not a sign of weakness it is when "He that is strong" lives within. When this same man begins to speak out "Thus saith the Lord" then the inner man is revealed or manifested in the flesh.

1 Corinthians 11:11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 11:12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.

Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Knowing that we each have a male and a female spirit or in the spirit we are neither male nor female whichever we prefer to say, should we not desire that the man always speak on spiritual matters and the woman stay silent?

I have felt the presence of the Lord very strongly during the time I have been working on this and I can see a loosening of bonds on people. I can see a freedom coming to God's people as was never before. I see a mighty army stirring as if to awake and I can hear God saying, "Arise, arise" and I can see dry bones being given life and I hear a rustling like as leaves being blown in the wind. I command angels to loosen you and let you go in Jesus name. I break all bonds off of you and command the grave clothes to fall.

"Lazarus come forth. It is time, it is time, it is time and a half a time. My children, arise."


The Skin That Covered Adam and Eve

Welcome to my world and please allow me to help in yours. You cannot fit into my world and I cannot fit into yours, but we can cross paths and extend helping hands to each other.

In writing this newsletter I'm beginning to see how a freedom for God's people is to come about. I thought it was a freedom that was both body and soul, and it is, but not exactly for all God's people at the same time. You see, God has chosen people all the way back to Adam for a special walk and special blessings. Their walk with God set them apart from the majority of mankind.

You would think that the people living around them would have caught on to where the blessings were coming from and begin to worship God also so they could partake of this bountiful harvest. Maybe they did.

Would God not honor them? They would have had the appearance of serving God but what was the motive or the condition of the heart?

There are many, many people in the Bible who have seen through the veil. For example, Abraham saw a city from a far off. An angel came and wrestled with Jacob. Angels visited Peter in prison. They came to Paul in a storm. Are they physically any different from you? No!

Why does God come to you? Why does He patiently wait in line for you to try to work everything out your way and finally come to Him when your way didn't work? Why does serving God work for some people and not for others? The condition of the heart. Abraham put God above everything he had. He meant more to him then life itself. But, remember, he didn't start off that way and neither did we.

Ephesians 1:4-5 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

There is a calling on you for a deeper walk that will set you aside from the people around you. You have felt the urging to draw closer to God and there is dissatisfaction with the lackadaisical way that the people around you serve Him. Is something wrong with you? No! The Holy Spirit desires to teach you in a special way.

There is a revealing going on in the spirit world that will turn the religious world upside down. You will find an understanding in the scriptures that man didn't show you and man will not take credit for. You can truly say God revealed this to you.

1 Corinthians 2:7-16
{7} But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
{8} Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
{9} But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
{10} But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
{11} For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
{12} Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
{13} Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
{14} But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
{15} But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
{16} For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

The common denominator in the people we revere in the bible is that God was their whole life. If God withdrew His spirit from you, would life be worth living? Think about it. How would you survive in a world He wasn't in? Is He not the only sure thing in your life? Is He not all you truly have?

I was led to go to a church and as I was rushing around getting ready I knew that God wanted me to go for a reason, but I didn't have a clue. As I was driving to the service, I saw what resembled a balloon enclosing the world. I didn't understand, but I could see the world through the balloon, just not clearly. The vision kept flashing in front of me and I kept asking God what the balloon meant. After about an hour to an hour and a half He answered, " It is skin. It is the skin I covered Adam with."

Talk about astonishment, I was thunderstruck! I stopped questioning and just listened. He said that Adam was a perfect man and being the image of God he could see both physical and spiritual, but because of his sin there was a covering that separated him from God. The closeness that he once enjoyed could never be again and all the descendants from Adam are born with this veil.

Matthew 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Only the pure in heart can see God. He judges the heart and it is said that no man can see God and live.

Your carnal man cannot live anymore after seeing God. It is your carnal self (your will) that separates you from God. You are born with this covering and the closeness you desire cannot be until it is ripped away.

I watched the world turning inside the skin and a tear in the fabric began at the top and came all the way down. Then He showed me the world again and told me, "Look." I saw the heads of people and the skin or veil was ripped apart. He showed me the scripture of the veil of the temple that was rent at Jesus' crucifixion and He said, "You are the temple."

1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

I was almost home before I realized that He didn't close the veil back up. He didn't repair it. Do you know what this means?

I can only tell you now that God is coming to you and He is revealing Himself to you. He has chosen you because you are not fainthearted. He will reveal many things to you and as you grow in Him you will be blessed with health, wisdom, understanding, and prosperity and you will be teaching others through the talents He has given you.

Matthew 25:14-21
{14} For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
{15} And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
{16} Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
{17} And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
{18} But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.
{19} After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
{20} And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
{21} His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

He has given each of us talents for use in His kingdom and as you use your talents for His glory, He will add others to you.

Romans 8:28-31
{28} And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
{29} For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
{30} Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
{31} What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

This is not a time for going backward. You can see the finish line and you see the obstacles and you must run the race for you are called for a special time and you will fill a special need.

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Many of You were called from your mother's womb for this time and it is now. You are a special person because there is a secret identity inside of you and this secret identity is most precious. Allow God to lead you and become your life. There is so much more to gain than there is to lose.


A Call to Perfection

I find myself this month wanting to call you to perfection not that I have attained it but that God is calling a special people to walk in this perfection. He would not ask this of you if you could not achieve this goal. You see God sees in you a the finished product and He alone knows what it takes to perfect us individually and as a whole. Think it not strange that He teaches you in the way that you should walk so that you always walk naked before him. That is to say, without things hidden from Him. You should have no thoughts that you are afraid to think on. You remember things that you have done or said that cause conviction to come over you, you need to repent of those things immediately so you can continue your close relationship with Jesus.

He has called all things behind you as though they never were but still the past won't leave you alone.

Why? Satan calls these things into your mind to try and convince you that you are nothing special and to the world you are not, so your main battle is in your mind and your worst enemy is yourself. Therefore the battle must be resolved in your mind. I'm sure you have come up with all kinds of reasons why you just can't walk in perfection before God. He sent His Son as an example as to how we are to walk so you have beaten your own self with the rod of condemnation.

God would not call you to do his bidding without clearing all obstacles out of your pathway so why aren't you moving ahead?

Moses was given a position of authority over Egypt and he felt so unworthy of this job. He was moving to do this job and an angel came to kill him. This angel was sent by God to take his life before he took another step. Why? If God sent him why would he in turn send an angel to kill him? Because he was not holy before God. He was not circumcised in the flesh or his sons as he was commanded to be.

Exodus 4:24-25
{24} And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him.
{25} Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to me.

This is the forerunner of the circumcision we have of the heart now.

Genesis 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

The Cherubims kept the way to the Garden of Eden, not to keep man out, but to keep it open. The way to the tree of Life was to be kept open and it still is.

Jesus said He was the way and we must strive to walk in this way.

God told Abraham that he must walk in the way of the Lord so that God could bless him with all the things he had promised him.

Genesis 18:19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

In this case Abraham and his descendants after him must walk in the way ordained by God in order to obtain all the blessings lovingly bestowed upon him. Abraham was no different than we are. We have each been shown a vision or a prophecy for us that we are to strive for. This goal should be before us as a banner over our future, but it also depends on our walk before the Lord. I don't mean in the sense of sinning before the Lord, I mean that every step we walk must stay in the way of the plans God has for our future. Abraham was shown his inheritance and He went to Egypt because of a famine and ended up telling lies to preserve his life.

We know he had to learn to walk by faith before he could receive the promise but it's more than consulting God on everything you do and everything you say.

You can try trial and error and he grants you that right. If you don't want to receive your promise until your ninety years old that doesn't make you wrong its just that there is a way to make sure you don't make a wrong move.

We are not baby Christians. If you were, you would not be reading this. There is a perfecting in the spirit that takes place when you are in the will of God.

When you have been called by God to do something and you move out in it, have you noticed the peace that descends on you when you know you are in his perfect will? Even if God is not talking to you directly you learn to expect that state of knowing when you are in his will and when you are not. With this there comes a time when we can know that we are always in his will as JOSHUA did.

As we rely more and more on his guidance, that knowledge of being in His will and attuned to His heartbeat is more evident in our lives. If we stay in this when we have found it we will be in the position to receive the promises that God has for our lives.

Abraham found this prefect place in God as did his son and his son's son and so forth. Only after this walking in God, which is what your are doing when you are in His prefect will, do we put down the barriers so that He can come forth in the greater anointing that is prepared for us. We are entering the rest of God, which means relying on Him to fight our battles before we meet them and to clean out our pathways as only He can do.

Have I made it? No! But I can see the pathway to walk in it. We read that we are to raise up our children in the way and they will never depart. We must first learn to walk in the way and to stay in the guidelines before we can really lead other children as we were meant too. The Holy Spirit is staying very close to us now and it is because of the greater anointing and we really need to go forward and not keep trying things to see if it works. We need to be still and wait for instruction and when you feel the unction of the Holy Spirit be up and about the Father's business.

When you move out in God in this Greater Anointing no power on earth can stop you. The gates of hell will not prevail. We are the Elisha generation and we have received the double anointing that he received but we need to stay in the way, which is Jesus.

Lord as I come before you, I ask for a greater releasing on my brothers and sisters and I ask for the attuning in the spirit to be increased to a measure never before felt by the body. I can see this greater anointing as a cloud over them and I ask for the guidance of angelic forces to guide them into your perfect will now so their lives and their children's lives will be in you. Let their children begin to receive the anointing of their parents and let the circle of faith encompass the whole household so your mighty works can be performed. We plead the healing, life giving blood over every household that this message enters into and we ask for a complete return to health both financial and physical over every person in this household. As the death angel passes over let the blood be applied in the name of Jesus. Amen.

There is an urgency in the spirit this month and I don't know what this entails but I commend you into His care.


Your Strength is in Your Weakness

Did you ever feel sorry for Judas Iscariet? Have you ever been glad it wasn't you? Well, for some of us, it was only the grace of God that kept us from doing the same thing.

Judas was there because of his weakness for money. If it had not been him, it would have been John or Peter or Mark. You see God used his weakness to achieve His goal. He allowed Satan to enter his heart through this weakness and the most dastardly deed in history was done. Judas was healed of this weakness when he brought the money back. This proved he had victory over his weakness but it was forever and always too late.

David had a weakness for women and much as he loved God he was still dealing with this weakness.

Because of Bathsheba, a murder was committed and David had to look upon his sin and deal with it. David was healed of this weakness in that there is no record of anymore wives after Bathsheba.

Moses was a very humble man before God, yet he still had a weakness, anger. His anger caused him to murder an Egyptian and he still kept it. This anger then cost him the Promised Land. Moses repented for his rash words but the deed was done.

I have heard references made to these people as to how bad they were but how different are they from us? They were under the law and we are under grace. This grace is all that preserves us.

God used their weakness in a way that they had to look, really look at what they had done and why it had happened. When he lets us do something that makes us feel lower than low, then we have to acknowledge that we are not perfect and God's still working on us.

If you never knew there was a problem in your heart, would you change? Let's face it, we can excuse things within ourselves that we wouldn't tolerate in others. We have less tolerance for our brothers and sisters in Christ than we do for people out in the world. I, myself, have felt that as children of God, they know better.

I have a tendency to want to shake them a little.

We can't change the way people are and we can't allow their way of being Christians to hold us back.

We need to go before God and say, " Show me my heart and help me deal with it." We need to ask Him to nullify everything that would hold us back from walking in total victory. Did you know that as long as you have a weakness that Satan has access to you? Anytime you step out from under the blood you are a walking target.

This call to perfection that we're walking in is a life-changing walk. You thought you had come a long way, but I tell you this day you will walk as Jesus walked and you will be free from all earthly desires of the flesh that would come between you and God.

Things in the spirit are speeding up. As you think it, so it is. Sometimes I feel like saying, " Wait a minute God, let me understand this." Then in the next minute, I want to know all, but I know that with the Wisdom of the Lord comes perfection and I wouldn't trade places with anybody.

When you come to understand that God has a calling just for you and a talent just for you or a song that needs to be sung just the way you do for just the person who's climbing that mountain right behind you, than you come to understand that we all need each other. Sometimes I'm pulling on you in the spirit to come on and some times I feel you pushing me to go faster because you feel the pull of the anointing too.

You know in heaven we're going to compare notes on how fast and how far we came and how much we helped each other.

Last month during our closing prayer, I saw the Death Angel passing over and I know four people that have died and in my own family one who almost did, so it is getting serious.

I feel to tell you that you are a lot closer to God than you know of and you are seeing your pathway clearer than you ever have and the way you thought it was going to be isn't the way it is. You're beginning to understand you're going to do it God's way and I feel a joy pouring out upon all of you as if a mighty flood is coming and I claim it for you in the name of Jesus.

When Satan tries to discourage you, and you feel like crying, laugh and laugh and laugh because God is on the scene and you have the victory before you ask. As you think it, God will grant it in Jesus' Name.

I can feel a love flowing from soul to soul to soul and I can see what looks like water and it is washing your souls with love and it is beautiful. This is the crystal river that flows from the throne, from the heart of God to the innermost part of your being and you need to just open up and let God minister unto you. This will flow not once but several times as you allow it. Please don't block what God is doing in your life. Please let it flow and overflow through you to others and feed His children. They are starving for lack of a word from the Lord.


The Tomato Plant

Do you remember when Isaac was meditating in the fields when his new wife, Rebekah, arrived?

Genesis 24:62-67
{62} And Isaac came from the way of the well Lahairoi; for he dwelt in the south country.
{63} And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide: and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.
{64} And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she lighted off the camel.
{65} For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a veil, and covered herself.
{66} And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done.
{67} And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was comforted after his mother's death.

Did you ever wonder what great mysteries were revealed to him at that time? I've wanted to know, but I've never asked. Am I going to reveal a great mystery to you? No, but I'm going to reveal to you what the LORD revealed to me.

I was plowing in my garden and looking at my new tomato plants and hoping to beat the rain to get new seeds in the ground. As I passed by the tomato plants, God began my lesson:

Do you know why the tomato plant needs water, then sun, and then nutrients? Do you know why the weather in the spring is cool, why summers are hot why autumn is harvest?

" No, LORD, I don't," I answered. "You designed it that way.

Water on the seed softens the coat and the sun coaxes it out of its shell, then, after it gets its true leaves, a little nutrient help it to grow faster. As dry weather arrives, the roots go deeper after moisture and nutrients and every rain make the leaves rise up and it grows a little more. After a time, it bears fruit and then comes the harvest.

My children are watered by the word and the anointing or my love for them coaxes them out of their self-imposed isolation. Then, they discover the talents I've given them to serve me with, their true leaves. Then, they're ready for the meat of the word, the fertilizer to make them grow right.

If the seed is dropped and the word is not there to water it, it will die. If the sun, or my love, isn't brought to them they won't come out of their life to discover my life and if they have an overzealous preacher or teacher, it can destroy all my work as if you put too much fertilizer and burned up those little plants. All things come together in the right amounts to grow this plant just like it did to make you what you are.

The fruit is producing when you manifest my Spirit and the harvest is gathered in when you produce seed after your kind and it's your responsibility to oversee all these tomato plants and all the souls I have put into your care and all the ministers who are called by my name have this same responsibility.

Don't kill my babies through careless words and be careful what you sow, for so shall you reap.

I needed this because I often wondered why I had such a thirst for the anointing and I questioned God as to why I couldn't stay in it all the time and now I know, my roots would not grow deep if I could easily get all the water or anointing I wanted. The seeking after God is what makes us strong in Him. I asked God for a message for this month's newsletter and he kept showing me my little tomato plants, so you must need this too.

When the seed is sown in our hearts, there is no peace except when we are around God's people and then, a thirst is born for more and more and more of Him. In our thirst our roots become grounded on a firm foundation that is Jesus Christ, the Anointed One. When the storms of life come and the winds of change blow He allows just enough to make us stronger. What would defeat others, only makes us dig in deeper.

He is the Master Gardener and we are workers in His vineyard with a vested interest in the harvest. As such, we all have a common goal and a common spirit dwelling within. If I sow the seed, another waters and another fertilizes and vice versa, but, God controls the amount if we stay in his will.

If we teach what we think or believe, we are in a sense watering with bad water and we can kill or stunt the growth of the babies we are entrusted with. Therefore, we must stay holy before the LORD and we need to encourage the ones who watered us and take extra care with our plants and to God give the increase.

I sincerely hope this helps you as much as it has me. I know I, by myself, can grow nothing; but all of us together, with God, can bring the harvest in. Come on brothers and sisters; I'm pulling on you now. Stand up and be counted!

I praise God for you and my prayers are with you. Many loved ones are out there and give God the glory when you see the changes that he is bringing in their lives. Rejoice in their growing without reservation because he will bless you too and is blessing you in ways you know not of.


Flowers

I sensed something that I have now come to know as truth. I have come to realize that God is using these newsletters as a tool to make you and I think. Bear with me on this, please.

He showed me flowers on steps in single little pots. There was a light similar a too small flashlight shining on each one. God asked me, "Which one is the better one?"

I answered, "They are all the same."

He answered, "Yes, they are, and so is every one of my people."

He began to show me that I had a tendency to judge a person by how much they knew about Him, how much control they allowed Him to have, and I wasn't judging from His point of view. He showed me pictures of His people rejecting Him because He didn't fit into what they believed He was.

As a general rule a person classifies himself as being Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian and so on, but if this means that this person refuses to accept God in a belief, then this belief system then becomes a tradition of men and is stifling your growth in God. Is any one religion more important to God then another. Well, I can only tell you this: I asked him, " What do I call myself? " And He answered, "Mine."

I have been in services throughout the land and heard ministered, how much better then the church down the road, they were. People, it's time this "I'm better then you" attitude is flushed out of our system. It has no place in your spiritual walk with God and is hindering the blessings He would release in your life.

I have been asked by people trying to label me, "Do you believe in tongues? Well I don't speak in tongues because God hasn't given them to me. Ah, oh, I already hear your answers! If he gives me this gift I will honor it as I do the others. Any gift he gives me I will honor as not being one better than the other but as all precious because he chose me to give it too.

1 Corinthians 12:8-10
{8} For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
{9} To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
{10} To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

People, tongues are a gift just as healing, prophesying, seeing in the spirit and casting out spirits is.

There is no one better than another is. If God hasn't given you any of these gifts are you any better or worse than any one else. Can you sing or preach or cook better than another? Can you say you are better because you can do this? He showed me again the flowers on the steps and said, "What else do you see?"

I saw very few leaves on the flowers and the light was shining just on the top of the flower.

He said that His people would not allow Him to cover their lives with His love. He said that He was allowed just so far and no farther and He was boxed in regarding what He could do in our lives by our traditions and beliefs.

People, in order to grow you must step out of the pot on to the ground. The pot symbolizes your roots being cramped and so your growth is being stifled.

Are you afraid of what God wants you to do? I can only tell you He will make you miserable if you let your beliefs stop you from seeing truth or walking in it. When the Apostle Paul said that when he was a child he spoke as a child but when he became an adult that he put away childish things he was saying that as an adult he would do as God had instructed him to do and not let the former things become a stumbling block to him.

1 Corinthians 13:9-12
{9} For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
{10} But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
{11} When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
{12} For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

When you are a child, then the belief system is good for you to grow in just as a family unit is there to teach you the way in which you are to go, but we grow up and have a need to become an adult and the family unit has done its work. It is the same in the spirit. When you needed this belief system it was there, now grow up and step out and trust God to teach you. Open your Bible and your soul and let God be God. If you read something you don’t understand then ask for enlightenment and be assured He won't leave you stranded.

God teaches us by stages and whether you just came to God or have served Him all your life the love of God is meted out in equal proportion. There is no merit system in God.

He is ushering in a new anointing that supersedes everything we've taught and been taught. Many people will miss this new anointing because it's never been this way before. If you won't accept this new anointing then you'll miss the boat and this will be entirely your misjudgment.

There is a sound in the spirit that resembles the rustling sound that you hear in a cornfield when the wind blows and this blowing causes confusion in your walk with God. This is the wind of change and you must listen closely to God or you'll lose time playing catch up.

I ask you to examine the reason for your growing pains and to acknowledge that you have done nothing wrong and if He didn't love you He would not desire to carry you higher in the spirit. I can see some of you in rags and mismatched clothes lying around you and you are surveying these clothes and saying, " They just don't appeal to me anymore. What is wrong with me?"

These are the things you have been taught and you need to tell God " Okay, take out everything I've learned that you didn't teach me and teach me by the spirit." If you can do this with an open mind He will reveal many things to you that you would not accept any other way.

He is calling a people together that desire Him above all else and will not let anything stop them from serving Him. My prayers are with you as you begin your journey and I wish you Godspeed in the Name of Jesus. Amen and Amen!


Cliffs

God began to show me two cliffs with a deep ravine between them and he asked me how do you get across to the other side? There was about 20 feet between the cliffs and I replied, "Back up and run; and jump across." He made me stop and think with his next question, "Would you?" I would have tried this on a less deep ravine when I was younger, because we did things like that when we were kids; but with age comes wisdom and I wouldn't now under any circumstances. This seemed like good advise for someone else if they wanted to get across. Have you ever noticed how we can tell someone else how to do things we wouldn't do?

He showed me that one cliff side was the Old Testament and the other was the New Testament and He said, "Do you know that there is a deep gulf between the two?" No, I didn't know that. I had not even thought about it. “What is the gulf?" I replied.

"The Old Testament is the history of a nation and the new is the birth announcement of a new nation," He said. "Okay, I can comprehend that concept. Now, what's the gulf?"

The Old Testament is the lesson of a people that I dealt with physically and the New Testament is a promise of a people that I will deal with in the spirit. Okay, I can see that, now what's the gulf?

"The Old Testament tells of a Savior of mankind and the New tells of the life and death and life again of this Savior. Now what connects the two together?" I didn't know what connected the two. I just wanted to know, "What's the Gulf?"

"The Gulf is the gap between carnal self and spiritual self, between spiritual life and physical death, between Jews and Gentiles, and it's the uniting force to combine the physical walk and the spiritual walk in Christ. It is the CROSS." "How can the cross be the gulf, Lord? I don't understand."

"Many are called but few are chosen because they must all come the way of the cross and that is one exclusion that my people would rather put on the shelf. It will prevent them from complete freedom in the spirit, from a total victory in the flesh and will keep them bound all the days of their lives."

Matthew 26:36-39
{36} Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
{37} And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
{38} Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
{39} And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Matthew 26:42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

Matthew 26:44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.

When Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane He was warring with his physical self. He knew what He was ordained to do but He also knew that we would come after Him and this was told with love because we would all come this way if we desired to go in His footsteps. He was the example that we are to emulate and He showed us how to do this and be victorious in our ministry.

To walk the way of the cross means to give your life totally unto God to use as He sees fit with no reservation. Jesus walked with the disciples and while He was with them they did miracles but that was only the shadow of the ministry that was to come. After His death they comprehended the life they were to lead in order to walk in the ministry that they were chosen to walk in. They were each crucified a different way and they knew the dangers they would face. There was fear after the crucifixion until the day of Pentecost and then the Holy Spirit came within them and fear had no place because the decision had been made in each one before that day came.

God is CALLING a people out that desire a deeper walk. A PEOPLE THAT IS not desiring just to be saved and safe but a people who want all that God will give them and any anointing that any other person doesn't want too. This is a strong people because God is with them and in them and the way of the CROSS is the way they wish to walk. This walk will not be dull and lifeless, but will be filled with more life than you thought possible on this earth at this time.

There is an anointing over many of you now that will cause creative miracles and the dead brought back to life. Am I dreaming? No, and if you think I am, you might miss it. This is before you. Will you drink from the fountain that I drink from? I break the ties that would hold you back and disannul the words spoken over you and declare you free in the Name Of Jesus.

If you desire this then just ask God to remove your doubts and fears and to remove the veil and then you can receive this double anointing. I am just the same as you and I want you to walk with me as my brother or sister. For this to happen to the extent that God wants, there must be a breaking down of walls, so I speak to the walls of beliefs that would separate us in the spirit and declare that no longer will God's people be separated by ignorance and lack of knowledge. We shall be as one, one body, one mind, and one spirit in Christ. I love you and my prayers are with you and for you as I walk this way.


Support for Your Ministry

Recently God showed me a basket that resembled a farmer's bushel basket that was turned upside down and I saw money pouring out in a never ending flow coming from this basket. I began to question the looked and saw many small ministries receiving this. He said, "This is the releasing of the funds to the ministries that are working under my name, My Spirit is in them and I have called them for this time. I have been preparing them in a quiet place and I have taught them to walk by faith."

Revelation 7:14 These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

"These small ones I have brought through tribulation and trial and the last obstacle to their ministry is removed. No longer will they be burdened by lack of anything. Many have had no help to go forth, now I will send workers who want to be close to the anointed one as Elisha was to Elijah, yeh and I will cause them to share in the anointing and to learn under my protection. Young people will come and help while their parents walk away. I am weeding out the unteachable and will reach a thirsty people that want me and me only."

Revelation 21:6 It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

"There has been a lack of anointing but no longer will this be. I have made them to thirst and only I can fill this thirst and now they will be filled. The spirit I place on them will cause creative miracles and lives to be changed with their presence. My people have only to walk in my spirit and miracles will flow around. I will renew their mind and they will think a healing and it will be, as you think it so it is because it will be my mind that inhabits these bodies and their heart is pure before me. I have called them from the foundations of the earth for this time and I call them blessed to be in this time."

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

"There has been a burden for finances and this bondage keeps them from turning loose to move for me. I will loosen the purse strings of many and there shall nevermore be a lack of funds. I have ways that are not your ways and your thoughts can't encompass all I have in place for my people. I have called a people that will walk in the visions I have given them and I have been preparing them in the nighttime and I have taught them and I won't allow pollution in this temple that I have created. This temple is made by my hands and is measured by my spirit and is a holy temple that I inhabit."

Revelation 7:15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

God also showed me a force that would rise up against this flow of the spirit and attempt to stop it and I saw Him put this force on the floor and He said that the gates of hell would not prevail against His anointed.

Luke 10:19 Behold , I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

I have known that there is a changing in spirit but I never dreamed that all this would happen in my lifetime and in yours. We are truly blessed to live at the present time. God is bringing order to our lives and He's changing our walks to conform to Him. If He is showing you that you are preaching, or singing, or laying on hands, or standing on stage somewhere than rest assured this will happen and it is not your imagination. You have felt this in the spirit and you need to say YES LORD and AGAIN YES IN JESUS NAME.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

There has been such distaste for the religions of the world but there is coming a change to the ministries, a cleansing process that will open the door for God's babies to be fed with the pure word of God. Judgment is and will be on all ministries and only the ones who have a true love for God will remain.

Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

The Woman that is in Revelation is revealed as Babylon that is religious prostitution and our walk has been crippled by traditions and beliefs. Doctrines do not make us free as Jesus taught us we would be.

Revelation 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

Revelation 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

Revelation 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

This is not one religion but many religions all over the world that binds God's people. It is the religious system.

Isaiah 13:19 And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.

Isaiah 47:1-3
{1} Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.
{2} Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.
{3} Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.

This designates this as being in the spirit not in the flesh.

Jeremiah 50:2 Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces.

There have been child molestation, rapes, beatings, murders, harassment and the list goes on under the name of religion and it is a hiding place for evil people so that religion has become a name walked on and laughed at, but this will change.

Serving God is a joy not a chore and if there is unhappiness in your walk with God examine your beliefs and compare them to the word of God. Don't worry about if it's all right with your religious beliefs just learn of God and be free in the spirit.

Jeremiah 51:45 My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the LORD.

Jeremiah 51:53-54
{53} Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall spoilers come unto her, saith the LORD.
{54} A sound of a cry cometh from Babylon, and great destruction from the land of the Chaldeans:

Ezekiel 21:21 For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination: he made his arrows bright, he consulted with images, he looked in the liver.

We have people that are prophesying that destruction will take place on a certain day and when it doesn't take place it then discredits God's people more. It used to be that if a prophet did not prophesy truth he was killed and God soon is going to throw them in the lake of fire for everlasting destruction. We have heretofore lived by Grace now our salvation will be by Grace.

Daniel 2:2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to show the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.

It is a shame to have all of these in our churches but we do and God is revealing the shame so there will be many more churches with their dirty laundry revealed so that it can be cleaned up and its sin destroyed as a cancer.

Revelation 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

It was once a light to the world and a place where Jesus dwelt but then it turned on His prophets that would rebuke it and its light went out.

Revelation 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

This identifies this as a religious system because Jesus was once in it and there is no longer a mystery as to whom, or what the woman represents in the spirit.

Revelation 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

As the Woman's skirts were lifted and her sins exposed so will be the doctrines that have wandered from the pure teachings or doctrine of Christ. After the disciples taught what Jesus had taught them there came to be different doctrines taught. This was in the birth of this spiritual nation and down through the centuries these teachings have been perfected to now separate brothers and sisters who truly love God. There is confusion when you put all the religions together and confusion is not of God. So what is it of?

John 7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

Romans 16:17-18 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. {18} For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

Am I teaching doctrine? No, I'm trying to free you to go to God and let him teach you.

Am I asking you to leave your church? No, I'm asking you to take the mental veil off that is on your mind and learn directly at the Master's feet. God will release you so can you work in the ministry, your ministry, in a much greater anointing than ever before so just let go and let God.

I know this is strong and if you don't like reading it, then know I didn't enjoy writing it but I wouldn't enjoy your blood on my hands either. Your deliverance is nigh, even at your door and the robes are in place around some of you. You know in the spirit where you place in this newsletter and you've been chosen for this time so the decision is yours. Where will you stand in judgment? I feel a weeping in the spirit for God's people and I can feel the change coming. God is on the move, Satan's power is stayed, arise and go to the Father's House.

God is asking for a personal relationship with each one of you and He holds your life in the palm of His hand. In this coming tribulation, He will be your constant companion so keep your eyes on the prize of the mark of higher calling and I ask for peace in your households and blessings in your finances from this day forth in the name of Jesus.

Amen and Amen!


Our Old Man is Crucified With Him

God Bless Your Day with Understanding! How many times have you prayed for your loved ones to come to God and not seen results? How many times have others come to you who have loved ones that have broken their hearts because of their sins and hard hearts? This is a cry we are familiar with and we can know how they feel but what's the answer? Do I have a quick fix or certain words to say to make it better? No, what I have to offer you is death. Let me show you a window to my life before you jump in over your head or walk away giving up.

My cry before the Lord has been for my family and I know I wearied Him with my pleas. I was prophesied over that He would add my kids to me and all my family, but closer to my heart were my kids.

In January of this year He told me that my children would come to Him through my death so I accepted this thinking that it was sometime a long time down the road. I knew I had some work to do for Him, so there was no worry. He has urged me in the spirit to move on faster but I had many times let problems and people interfere with the work that He had called me to do.

He began about two months ago to tell me He was taking me out because I was not moving forth as I should and that it was time for my children to come forth. I asked Him if He meant that it was time to come to Him and He said, "Yes!"

I told Him that right now my family would fall apart and He replied that He would be with them. It may sound strange, but I was actually looking forward to it.

He has shown me my ministry and I was a bit intimidated by what He had shown me, but if that was what He wanted, then He would have to move on it, otherwise I couldn't do it. When this came up I questioned Him about what He had shown me and He said, "Your kids will work in this ministry through your death. Now are you willing to die for their ministry?"

I didn't know what to say to this. I wanted to find places in the Bible where this had happened to other people, but I couldn't think of a single instance where this had happened.

I went to a prophet’s meeting and she prophesied that my daughter Shannon would come forth as an end-time prophet and God had shown me beforehand that she would do this after my death. I went the following Tuesday night and she prophesied that if my family would not let me go forth as God had instructed me to do, that He would move them out or me out and I questioned God again. Lord, are you moving me out or taking me out and He replied, "Taking you out." I didn't realize until later that they both meant the same thing. She had no way of knowing because I had not discussed this with anyone.

I began to feel that I was only half here and I was cheerful about that. He told me to get a Donor Card and I was fine with that. Just think, I could step out of this body into the arms of Jesus and someone or many someone's might be blessed with my usable parts. Do I sound cold? I don't mean to be, it was just so appealing. No! I'm not suicidal. I'm just telling you that when your time is up that God is so close and so comforting.

He asked me to examine my reasons for still being reluctant and I replied that I wanted to see my grandson that Christy is carrying and then I'll be ready. Was I stalling? I don't know, but I knew that his birth would be a sad time if I died and no way did I want to be the cause of any cloud on such a wonderful day.

My daughter had turned her life around and I could hear God in her singing. My daughter Christy is experiencing a new birth in her spirit and I can see God working in my husband and my sons Jeff and Joey.

Donna is coming forth almost in my footsteps, so I can see God is lining them up for their ministry and I'm in the way. After He showed me that He was working, He asked me again, "Are you ready?"

I saw down my children's future and my husband's also and said, "Yes, anytime you're ready."

He said, "Since you're willing to die for me, would you live for me?" I was stunned, wait a minute, and let me understand. I'm willing to die and now you say live?

He gave me the verses, Romans 6:1-14

{1} What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
{2} God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
{3} Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
{4} Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
{5} For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
{6} Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
{7} For he that is dead is freed from sin.
{8} Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
{9} Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
{10} For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
{11} Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
{12} Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
{13} Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
{14} For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

After reading I now understand something I had not really thought about. This dying to the world's influence is more than I had thought. I thought when you repented and accepted Jesus that you were then born again, but this gives you the right to become a Son of God, you still must die to sin.

Romans 8:12-14 If you then will follow Christ then you must be a new creation ...

... So there must need to be a teaching and a dying process. The disciples walked with Jesus but when He was crucified, fear held them in its grip, but with the acceptance of their ministry they came to the releasing of the anointing and they then became new creatures and we must do the same.

Paul was blinded in order for his teaching and rebirth to take place. This was an ongoing process. Paul said that he died daily for us so all of us have come through salvation and for many that will be the battle they will fight for the rest of their days. Trying to maintain their salvation. This means they will continue to be in Satan's dominion but if you will continue towards God then the dying of self will happen and Satan will no longer have a hold on you therefore you will walk in the spirit. Do you think impossible? Oh ye of little faith. Know ye not that ye are to press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus? When two or three are gathered in my name anything they shall ask, that shall I do!

You have the promises of God to walk on and what's behind you is not worth going back to. Offer Him your whole body, your whole life, your whole soul and stand and see God deliver you from evil and use you for His glory. I don't mean to overwhelm anyone and I realize that it does and I asked God should I soft-soap this and He said, "That has been done enough." So please stay with me as long as you can and I will stay with you until God leads another way.

This collection of newsletters has been a blessing for many years to a lot of people. I offer it to you the reader that wants a closer walk with God. May these moments in the heart of God be a blessing to you as it has for many many people. God showed me a multitude of people that I would minister too and it scared me because it was a huge crowd. I thought He meant that I would stand in front of all those people and the thought of doing that was petrifying for me. I began to back step in this walk and He said you will meet them in the spirit one at a time as they are ready. I could deal with that. OK At another time I asked him to show me what was coming down the road and He asked me “Why do you want to know? Where you can run and hide? I doubt my own capabilities but I do not doubt God. I know that in this book there is truth for every man and in today’s world that is an accomplishment.

May you use this as a step in the right direction to further your ministry?

Love as Your Sister in Christ,

Dottie McElreath
