By the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow
 
"Whoever obeys his command will come to no harm, 
and the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure.
For there is a proper time and procedure for every matter, 
though a man's misery weighs heavily upon him."
Ecclesiastes 8:5-6
 
NOTE: At the end of this podcast there is a short spontaneous song of the Lord that was recorded in a small studio several years ago. There were other wonderful and gifted percussionists and musicians joining in as the Holy Spirit moved through us all and gave me the beautiful melody and orchestral keyboard accompaniment. My hope is that it will stir your heart to worship and be even hungrier for the Presence of the Lord in your life.
In all of our lives as believers, we face times and settings where there is a feeling of being pulled and tested, stretched, and restrained. Often, during these excruciating events, those who avoid personal character development tend to give unrestrained advice, spiritualized platitudes, and often, trumped up words of so-called prophetic inspiration to help us not suffer so!
As we begin to see the Lord's plan in all of this we also come to understand that if we are not first hearing His voice, His heart, His word in the matters that are straining us, nothing any man or woman says can bring the ultimate light of clarity and release! 

 
WINTER SPRING SUMMER AND FALL
 
We all face seasons of change that correspond much like the four seasons we observe yearly. Nothing is more surprising than to have an interruption of what we presume to be what is "normal" for an earthly expectation, in one of those seasons.
When a sudden ice snow storm blows in unexpected in the late spring in the Colorado fruit growing regions and encrusts the tender blooms on fruit trees and garden plants, we are devastated by the loss of not only the blooms, but also the fruit it could have produced. It appears as if there has been a cruel storm sent to cause crop failure.
 
WHAT IS THIS CURRENT SEASON OF DIVINE TENSION ALL ABOUT?
For many who are hearing or reading this message, you feel as if you have experienced a "Crop failure," perhaps several, and just can’t take one more aching disappointment. Many hearts have passed their tender agonies to me on paper, in emails, texts, and through the telephone.
 
ANGUISH HAS ITS OWN PERFUME 
I too have heard the whispers of the voices of darkness try to entice, with wearisome words of worry, paranoia and doubting!
"Give up!" they say! "What good is this time of shaking doing?"
"What possible good can come out of believing that there is something occurring that will bring a fresh advancement when all seems to have stalled or strained?”
And yet, another set of voices would tempt with words of esteem whispering;
"Make it happen! 
Proclaim mighty deeds and things to come with fervor, flair and well-honed words of impact!
Use it or lose it!
Promote, push, and publish! It is all yours for the taking!"
 
BOTH OF THESE VOICES COME FROM THE SUBTLETIES OF THE SOUL AND WELL OILED SPIRITUAL VOICES TRAINED BY THE PRINCE OF LIES AND FLESHLY IMPULSE.
 
But.
In the midst of these strains and attempts to distract comes a clear undeniable "Divine Tension" that pulls and stretches the heart of the humbled believer.
It calls simply, firmly, and does not lack a depth of confidence and direction.
This “Presence” causes a clash with all that seems to be "the way of man" and will not relent.
 
THE EARTH IS IN TURMOIL

It doesn't take much to understand that the earth is in upheaval, rivalry, and chaos wherever we look. There is a tangible and penetrating "tension" in the events we are seeing unfold every day. Parallel to this explosion of pure evil and lulling to sleep of many, there is a Divine Course being laid out for those who have come to the end of them.
 
ETERNITY IS IN THE SIGHTS OF THOSE LOOKING TO A KINGDOM YET UNSEEN.
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have been preparing a bride. 
This is done only through the shaping tools of heavenly choice.
The chisel and hammer have been at times brutal and unflinching, yet, when the soft hand of The Almighty begins to apply the oil of polishing, He does it with His own hand as well.
He makes it beautiful in His own timing, even though the “Divine Tension” seems as if it might cause us to "snap" under the pressure of His hand, smoothing away the roughness of our thoughts and soul's intentions.
 
Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
He has also set eternity in the hearts of men;
Yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
 
HEARING, REFINING, HEEDING
 
The King of all Glory is training those who have been thrust on the altar of fire to hear from Him as one who strains to catch the song of a bird in distant meadow.
It takes the "spiritual ear" and training it to identify even the slightest note or sound, however distant, and to learn to silence the sounds and voices of distraction until the  "honing in" on the sound, the glorious sound of peace, finally directs and sustains us with all that we hear.
And then, having drunk deeply of the Voice of the Beloved and Divine Counselor, quickly, without mental filing way of instructions or overthinking, we move and heed His mapping out of plans for this appointed time.
 
RISING FROM THE ASHES OF THE REFINING OF GOD

So! Unto those who hear this word from heaven, claiming you are one of Heaven's very own, know that you are being formed and fashioned into sober, clean containers, prepared for infilling.
My Spirit will fall upon those who are not seeking to lay claim to My voice, but instead HEED My voice and SEEK My face. 
They shall be examples of purity in My Kingdom and will not strive among the self-promoting and “wordy". The broken will be safe in the arms of these who have passed through the current season of being pulled and tested, stretched and restrained and they will restore the devastated.
My "faithful hearts" will not be compelled to build agendas for Me and My Presence, because I will BE the Presence that creates the Manifestations of Glory and Might in the earth, without the fanfares of men.
YOU HAVE BEEN REDUCED TO DESPERATION IN ORDER THAT I MIGHT RESTORE YOU TO INSPIRED LIVING, IN FULL FELLOWSHIP WITH ME.
Isaiah 61
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
Because the LORD has anointed me
To preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim freedom for the captives
And release from darkness for the prisoners,
To proclaim the year of the Lords’ favor
And the day of vengeance of our God,
To comfort all who mourn, 
And provide for those who grieve in Zion
To bestow on them a crown of beauty
Instead of ashes, the oil of gladness,
Instead of mourning,
And a garment of praise, Instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
A planting of the LORD
For the display of his glory and splendor.

By Mary Lindow
Today’s podcast is one that I am going to share with you about “another wonderful story” of how the Holy Spirit can prompt us to do things for others at the most uncanny times, and as if they were perfectly orchestrated years and years beforehand.
And, of course, the Lord knows the heart desire of every one of his children, but he often uses his own children to help bring about the heart’s desire for many other people by being obedient and acting when the Holy Spirit in first Corinthians says, “Don’t you know that your body is a temple that belongs to the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit, whom you received from God, lives in you. You don’t belong to yourselves.” 1 Corinthians 6:19
 
IT WAS NEAR CHRISTMAS TIME, and a local Women’s Aglow group, which happened to be a good sized chapter, was having a Christmas ladies luncheon and asked if I would come in and be their keynote speaker. The room was decorated beautifully and of course the tables were festive for the holiday!
As I was sitting at the table next to the team members and the president of the group, there was a conversation about the beautiful table settings. I was just listening and enjoying hearing them talk about how they went about getting everything ready, and why they wanted to make it so nice for so many other women that were coming, because many of them worked full-time jobs and didn’t get a chance to come and partake of beautiful things during the holidays because they were also busy mothers.
 
ONE OF THE LADIES BY THE NAME OF BILLY WAS SHARING WITH EVERYONE THAT SHE HAD JUST GONE SHOPPING WITH HER DAUGHTER A FEW WEEKS AGO, and they had picked out Wedding China for her daughter and her husband, because her daughter was going to be married in the spring. She went on to say that she never did get to have Wedding China as a young bride and wanted her daughter to have a beautiful experience and opportunity to have a beautiful table.
 
I THOUGHT, "WHAT A WONDERFUL THING THIS WAS THAT THIS WOMAN WAS GETTING CHINA FOR HER DAUGHTER, AND THAT SHE HAD NEVER HAD WEDDING CHINA HERSELF." She went on to mention that she had picked out a special pattern herself as a young bride, but that it was just not possible for her family and friends to give wedding china at that point, because it was a very frugal wedding, and other wedding gifts were more important.
I sat there and wondered about how wonderful it was for her as a mother, to be so concerned that her daughter would have a beautiful table to set with beautiful things, when she herself had never had any. Now, it was time for me to get up and share my Christmas message so I did, and afterwards told her how beautiful her story was to me about her daughter, and proceeded to go home for the day.
On my way home, I began to remember that I have been given an entire set a Fine China from a dear friend, whom I had come to know while I was in Bible College.
 
NOW, THIS IS WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING!
This dear, godly, lovely man would take on students to help with jobs or different kinds of projects in his home or, other derelict properties that he would buy, and train them and also pay them so they could pay for their Bible college fees. He had been in the military with a high clearance type of job, and although he had wanted to marry, he knew that he would never be able to be home enough to justify caring for a bride. At 63 he began to take students into his home for meals and storytelling, and developing them for skill sets. He had been a trainer for all kinds of business components of the military.
WHEN I MET HIM WHEN IMMEDIATELY HAD A BOND because he was also a gifted musician, and had a love for Fine art and Fine China. He would go to the thrift stores or take me along and different places where very wealthy Texans would drop off Crystal and China and dishes and silver that they were no longer using. So he was forever scouting out Havilland china pieces or different kinds of China to add to his collection. I went on to meet my husband and marry him later and we moved to Illinois. (That’s where my husbands from.)
THIS LOVELY MAN BY THE NAME OF ALAN would occasionally sent boxes of pieces of things that he would find to add to a side of China for me, and I did have wedding China of my own. At one time we had three full sets of Fine China and I wasn’t sure what to do with all of it! Then came two boxes that he had found of a 1950s china pattern that he thought was exquisite! I had opened the boxes and noticed there were eight place settings, eight cups and saucers, eight salad plates, eight serving plates, and also a creamer and sugar set as well as a large serving bowl.
 
SOMEHOW, I NEVER FELT LIKE THESE WERE TO BELONG TO ME, and I really didn’t have storage for them. So, I put them away in a cupboard thinking that someday if we moved and I had a China hutch for them, I would use them as spring dishes. They had a platinum rim, they were white and off to the right side there was a spray of flowers that had a lot of teal and a little bit of touch of pink and a hint of orange, and of course soft green.
 
STEVE AND I WERE THEN CALLED TO GO HELP PIONEER A CHURCH IN MISSOURI, so we packed everything up and moved those dishes and everything else to Missouri. And understand these dishes have been shipped from Dallas Texas to Illinois. Now they were taking a trip to Missouri!
 
ABOUT TWO YEARS LATER STEVE AND I DECIDED THAT WE WERE GOING TO MOVE BACK TO DENVER, COLORADO BECAUSE THE LORD HAD PROMPTED US TO DO SO. So once again, we packed everything up and moved to Denver. There I was in Denver speaking at a Women’s Aglow Christmas banquet luncheon and I hear this woman-discussing find China for her daughter.
 
NOW! BACK TO ME ON MY WAY HOME. 
The thought came to me, (prompted by the Holy Spirit) “Why don’t you give that set of China to Billy? What a wonderful Christmas gift it would be to gift to her, and she would have a lovely set of China for her own home.”
I was absolutely thrilled to think that this would belong to someone else, and that the Lord would want me to give it to them. But I wasn’t sure if it was a pattern she would want or not.
 
BUT THE PERSISTENT NUDGING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT…
… WOULD NOT GO AWAY!
 
I went into our basement storage area and found the two boxes and everything was still pristine and in great condition. I wrote a quick card, and told her that I felt like the Lord wanted me to give these to her after listening to her conversation about buying China for her daughter and then that I just wanted to bless her with it so she would have a beautiful table at Christmas time. I did get a hold of her telephone number and called and told her that I was having my husband and two little boys run some boxes by, just a little something for her. Would she be home? She said of course she would and she said she was “quite intrigued”.
I BUNDLED UP THE BOXES AND HELPED MY HUSBAND GET THE TWO LITTLE BOYS INTO THE CAR AND OFF THEY WENT TO DO THE DELIVERY. I was downstairs folding laundry, and just thinking about how much I hoped it blessed her, and that she would be tickled that the lord thought of her.
 
 NOW COMES THE MOST EXCITING PART!
The phone starts ringing and I went upstairs and I missed it. (This is back when Cell Phones were way too expensive for everyone and we still had a landline with a long cord!)
Then the phone started ringing again, so I quickly answered the phone, and on the other end, there was the sound of someone gasping and crying! Now Being a pastor's wife, we often received calls from people who were in distress or who were needing prayer, so, I began to saying, “Hello? Who’s there? Can I help you?” Finally, the person on the end of the line was able to clear their throat and gather their emotions, and it was Billy the lady who Steve had dropped the China off to.
 
SHE BEGAN SAYING, “OH MARY! YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU HAVE DONE!” And of course I didn’t, and I wasn’t sure if it was a good thing or a bad thing, but I could tell that she was overcome! She then began to tell me that when the boxes arrived, she was tickled to think that someone thought of her, and my husband said my wife wanted to give these to you and wish you a Merry Christmas. But, when she closed the door and went to open the packages, she reached in and pulled out one of the dinner plates that was in a slotted cardboard area. The China pattern was the EXACT China pattern that she had wanted as a young bride, but never had. It had the platinum rim that she had desired to have on her pattern! And there were eight place settings, just enough for her Christmas table and her family that was coming to feast. Also, she was able to set a beautiful place setting and table, for the Mother of the Groom, who was going to come and visit.
 
THIS WOMAN WAS WEEPING AND LAUGHING, AND COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT THE LORD WOULD HAVE HELD ONTO THIS CHINA FOR HER ALL THESE YEARS. I told her that they have been given to me and shipped from Dallas to Illinois to Missouri to Denver. Imagine! The Lord had shipped those dishes, and had me move them “strategically”, until they got into the hands of the woman that he had planned to bless them with!
 
MY FRIENDS, GOD KNOWS THE DESIRES OF OUR HEARTS even down to the simple things like Fine China, and he knows that soft and beautiful things, in specific times of our life are so necessary, to show us how lavish and beautiful his care and love for us is.
 
THE STORY GOES ON BECAUSE MANY OF HER FRIENDS THEN BEGAN TO HEAR THE STORY ABOUT “THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE CHINA”, and they began to give her serving pieces that matched, or Silver pieces or Crystal, and one friend even gave her a set of family silverware to accompany her beautiful table. Everyone wanted to get in on the beautiful moment!
 
WHEN STEVE CAME HOME, WE JUST PUT OUR ARMS AROUND EACH OTHER AND LAUGHED AND CRIED at the joy of knowing the Lord had those dishes, literally moved and sent on his behalf, to this darling woman.
 
I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO NEVER, EVER, MINIMIZE THE FACT, THE HOLY SPIRIT ASKS YOU TO DO SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE ELSE.
It could be something as simple as giving them a beautiful scarf that you are no longer wearing, or perhaps you have tools in your garage that you’re not using.
IT’S IN THE ACT OF GIVING
THAT THE PRESENCE OF GOD COMES DOWN
AND TRANSFORMS WHAT WE ARE GIVING, INTO HOPE.
 
 
GIVING IS NOT THE NATURE OF THE DARK WORLD! Taking and grasping and hoarding is from the dark part of the world. But we as believers are to give freely because we have freely received everything we could ever need to save us from the doom and darkness of this world.
When Christ himself came and gave his life as a lamb, as a child, he gave his life to us in the form of an infant so that when his day to die up on the cross came; he could truly say that he experienced life like we have, from cradle to grave.
 
AS WE ALL BEGIN TO DE-CLUTTER AND PUT AWAY CHRISTMAS ITEMS, I would encourage you to look at through the lens of what you have, and ask the Lord, “Is this something that I need to be sharing with someone else?”
Is there another set of silverware in your house that you are not using that another family might need?
Do you have several pairs of sports tennis shoes that you purchased and realized you don’t like them and they’re practically brand new?
 
FIND A FAMILY, FIND SOMEONE WHO NEEDS THEM.
And yes, you have to look for them sometimes, but the Lord will direct your path because you are led by the Holy Spirit and you belong to Him, and the Holy Spirit wastes NOTHING!
 
WE ARE LIVING IN A TIME WHERE THE BODY OF CHRIST
IS BEING CHAMPIONED AND CHALLENGED TO LEARN
HOW TO CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND MEET ONE ANOTHER’S NEEDS SO THAT NONE ARE LACKING.
There’s no place in the Bible that talks about hoarding or keeping everything to us. None whatsoever. But it does talk about sharing and at times, “sacrificial giving to others” so that they may know the love of Christ.
I encourage you to go through your canned goods to look at your bedding, sheets, extra coats, and by all means that dozens of Bibles that we all have sitting on our shelves in abundance! There are those who would give anything to have a new Bible or perhaps a warmer winter coat.
 
WE CANNOT LOOK DOWN ON THOSE WHO ARE SLIGHTLY IMPOVERISHED OR IMPOVERISHED,
BECAUSE THERE’S NOTHING "MORE GODLY" ABOUT BEING WEALTHY, THAN THERE IS ABOUT BEING POOR.
 
GOD JUDGES THE INTENTION OF OUR HEARTS,
NOT THE ABUNDANCE OF OUR WALLETS.
 
THERE ARE THINGS AROUND YOU THAT THE LORD HAS PLACED WITHIN YOUR REACH and maybe even you have moved from state to state or move from one house to another that you could easily ask him about and ask him to prompt you to show you who is this to go to.
You may be sitting in a restaurant and hear someone talking about something they need and you may be prompted by the Holy Spirit that you are the one that has it.
It takes simple listening.
It just takes simple listening!
It doesn’t take a Herculean effort.
But love acts!
 
ONCE WE SECOND-GUESS OURSELVES and never stop and buy that cup of coffee for the person in front of us that seems downtrodden. Or, we wonder if that $20 towards someone’s grocery bill in front of us makes any difference, then we miss out on the blessing. But you see it’s not for us to question the amount or the moment! It’s for us to act in loving grace and humility and kindness, and in that moment change the world!
 
HEAVEN COMES DOWN AND MEETS THE NEED AND KISSES SOMEONE’S HEART WITH HOPE, AND HE USES US TO DO IT.
 
I wish you all a beautiful week as you prepare  for this up-and-coming year.
My message after the first of the year is going to talk about “Peace in the midst of chaos” because the world is becoming more chaotic, and unfortunately the world is covered with a gross darkness right now.
Believers need to be strengthened encouraged not to quit, not to hide, and certainly not to hoard!
I BLESS YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS AND I PRAY NOW THAT HE WILL TOUCH YOU AND GUIDE YOU AND SHOW YOU WHAT TO DO WITH THE THINGS THAT YOU DO HAVE, THAT YOU CAN GIVE FREELY. And, perhaps there are things that you are feeling a tug at your heart that you need to give but they’re going to cause a little pain to give away. That’s OK! The Lord does love, sacrificial, giving, and above all, he loves a joyful giver!
 
THERE IS NOTHING MORE JOYFUL THAN TO SEE THE ABSOLUTE SURPRISE AND DELIGHT ON THE FACE OF SOMEONE THAT YOU HAVE BLESSED IN KINDNESS, AND WITHOUT FANFARE.
 
Have a beautiful and Happy New Year, but above all, pray that the Lord would show you what he has to say to you in 2023 specifically for your life  and what kind of assignments he has for you.
 
THE CHURCH IS BEING CALLED UP TO BE THE FULL ARMORED BODY OF CHRIST, AND MY FRIENDS THAT MEANS YOU AND I.
Goodbye for now please go to my website at www.marylindow.com where you can listen to this podcast directly there or you can read and listen to other things that I have posted there and a few videos.
I say thank you to all of you who have been so gracious to send beautiful Christmas cards and little notes in the mail and also emails with encouraging words, sharing what these podcasts and stories I’ve been doing mean to you.
And I thank those of you who have been prompted by the Lord to support this next year of ministry. Your response has been a bit overwhelming and I thank you for your help, and also I think you more than anything for your prayers for I truly do feel them.
God bless all of you.

TODAY’S PODCAST IS ONE OF SEVERAL THAT I WILL BE DOING IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS WHICH I TRUST WILL ENHANCE YOUR CHRISTMAS SEASON, EVEN THOUGH THE MESSAGE IS ONE FOR ANY SEASON!
I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to share with you, some very tender and beautiful moments where the Lord moved upon my husband, and I to obey the spirit of God promptly, and out of doing this God did great and amazing things!
I also want to thank those of you that have been so consistent in helping me to produce podcasts. I am now reaching through the grace of God 60 countries freely, and also have been picked up by dozens of different podcast organizations. It does cost me to have to produce and publish these because they have to be parked somewhere. So again, I thank you and I know that at times it is difficult to give, and I do not take it lightly. It does help me do what I do because without you, I would have to stop!
 
NOW LET’S BEGIN WITH TODAY’S EXCITING “GOD STORY” PODCAST.
My husband and I were given tickets to attend any movie of choice that we wanted to. Of course there’s not much to choose from out there anymore that isn’t filled with all kinds of trashy material and narratives which we just simply choose not to support. So, we were thrilled to find out that Season Three of the tremendously well done epic cinematic story of the apostles and Jesus, the epic production of “The Chosen“ was showing at our local theater! They were releasing the first two episodes of Season Three!
We had just recently returned from a trip, and I had just returned from ministering at two different conferences. We were both a little tired, and to be honest, weary with the world. At the same time when we came home a day or two later after the last trip, my husband was rushed to the emergency room with excruciating pain, and we found out that he had a very large kidney stone. That night after 10 hours, we came home, I was sitting in our living room praying and just trying to be quiet and calm myself, and I heard a strange noise downstairs in our lower level closet area. I heard a grinding and a popping and hissing sound. Something was not right with our furnace!
 
COLORADO WINTER WAS UPON US AND THE FURNACE WAS NOT BEHAVING!
I went downstairs and could not see that the gas pilot was lighting, nor was there anything remotely close to heat coming out of it, so I just assumed that the pilot light was out. To cut to the chase, there were no parts to repair our furnace due to supply chain issues, and the potential for us having had carbon monoxide poisoning going on was high!
We were grateful that the Lord alerted us to this! But we were NOT happy that we were going to have to replace an entire furnace system, and up to the new specifications for “green energy requirements“ in Colorado.
 
WHAT AN ABSOLUTE HORRIBLE THING TO HAPPEN BEFORE CHRISTMAS! RIGHT?
And, we had just finally caught up on paying for the last of Steve’s Father’s care in assisted living, as he had just passed away in March. He was 96 years old, and of course had planned to take care of himself, but no one knew he would live to such a ripe age of 96!
So, we were feeling a little bit out of sorts and overwhelmed and COLD and decided that we would go to the movie and just enjoy something where the presence of God was allowed to flow, as well as something that was going to be meaningful and purposeful during this difficult time we were in, once again.
 
WE WERE SCHEDULED TO SEE THE MOVIE AT 1:45 PM IN THE AFTERNOON.
As we walked into the theater, there was no one else IN the theater but Steve and I! We did arrive a few minutes early but as time passed, it was obvious we were at an afternoon matinee close to the end of the time they were going to show this film. So, we just sat there and held hands and watched all the previews of wonderful new films that were coming out by Christian groups and their animations for children. 
 
THEN, OFF TO THE SIDE...
...WE NOTICED A YOUNG MAN COME IN THE DOOR.
He had to be in his mid-20s, and certainly not any older than 30. He was dressed in a white snapback baseball cap, a white hoodie with red and black graphics of some type on the front, and off-white khaki type colored jeans and white tennis shoes with black laces.
Now, I noticed all of this because there was not another single person to pay attention to at that point! Just a minute or two later another couple who were fragile and older, probably in their mid 80s, came in and sat far off to the side.
 
THE ENTIRE PRODUCTION WAS AS IF TIME WAS SUSPENDED, as we watched our own lives passing before us, as the Lord had called us so many years ago, individually as young people, and then as a married couple into the service of the King. The hardships, the “iron sharpening iron” dialogs that shaped and fashioned our marriage. And nd the things that the Lord needed to prune away in order for us to be better, used by his plan and hands.
 
WE COULD FEEL THE “DIVINE TENSION” BUILDING,and we knew that this production had been created for this very time in the earth. We sat in our seats and wept, and prayed for our world and our nation. We asked God to help us to be strong and to not be afraid, and that he would use us until our very last breath.
 
Toward the end of the production, there was a clear understanding, that the disciples and the women who were followers of Jesus knew that this next phase of ministry they were called to, was going to be very sobering and very difficult, and, that the pressure from external governments (the Romans) and then dealing with the religious dictators of the day among them Pharisees/Sanhedrin, it was pressing in on all of them.
 
THEY WERE BEING CALLED TO COMPLETELY ABANDON ALL OF THEIR OWN PLANS, and all of their own desires and everything they owned in order to be sent out two by two, to go preach the gospel. We watched them struggle to figure out how food was going to be provided and more, even though they had seen Jesus multiply in the crowds. We watched Peter and his wife look at each other, wondering if they would ever have the children they were longing for. And yet, we also watched Matthew the tax collector have a redemptive reconciliation with his parents (who had previously, literally, disowned him), because they too had come to be followers of Jesus. It’s uncanny that the words “The Chosen” are the key words that define the name of this production.
 
BEFORE I GO INTO THE NEXT PART, WHICH IS THE ABOUT COMMAND OF THE LORD AND SUPERNATURAL PART OF THE SUPERNATURAL EVENT, THAT TOOK PLACE, I would like to tell you that you can download the app on your phone or onto your computer and watch   season one and season two of the chosen absolutely for no cost. This entire production has been funded by crowdfunding only. It is the largest crowdfunded, crowd-sourced production ever to be done. How absolutely amazing of the Lord to have this kind of an event to be produced during the most difficult and tumultuous times that we are all now experiencing in this current era!
 
SO NOW, BACK TO THE STORY!
Steve and I sat there very quietly once the movie had ended.
The older couple had left.
We were just watching the credits, listening to the music and quite honestly crying and being shaken by all that we have been experiencing lately with so many deaths, the hardships of travel and ministry and strange beds, and so many people hungry for a word, or a touch from the Lord and us knowing we have very human limits. We were weary from funerals that we had been attending or hearing about from the multiple deaths during the Wuhan COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Drug overdoses, many suicides. 
 
WE HAD BEEN WORKING IN PASTORAL COUNSELING WORK WITH SOME EXTREMELY DEVASTATING AND HARD CASES WHERE WE KNEW THAT WE HAD STRETCHED OUR LIMITS TO THE FINAL POINT, AND ONLY GOD COULD DO THE FINAL WORK.
And of course, burying Steve’s father in the spring, after having recently buried his mother during Covid, and not being able to see her was still weighing on our hearts. And then there was that shocking expense of that new furnace and entire new venting system. UGH!
We were absolutely weeping over the movie, identifying with the struggles of the apostles and disciples, as well as contemplating this time in our lives, and what God needed to do to assist us as well!
 
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw movement and I noticed the young man was now coming down the steps, and was going to exit the theatre.
 
As he went around the corner out into the hallway to exit, the Holy Spirit, clearly spoke to me, “Go after him! I want you to say something to him! I sent you here to this specific, showing so that you would see him.”
 
SO! I QUICKLY GOT OUT OF MY SEAT AND TOOK OFF AFTER HIM, and as the door was closing to the cinema entry section that we had just been in,
I shouted, “Excuse me! Excuse me!”
I made it to the door and outside of the door, because the young man had heard me and held it open. I simply looked in the young man’s eyes, and I said, “I feel that the Lord wanted me to come out and speak to you. He has something he wants me to tell you and I would be wrong if I did not take the time to stop and obey him.” I asked the young man if it was OK if I told him what I felt, I was to say to him, and he said,  “Yes, please!” very politely.
 
I BEGAN TO TELL HIM THAT HE WAS SENT TO THE MOVIE THEATER AT THE VERY SAME TIME WE WERE BECAUSE GOD WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT SOMEONE SAW HIM, THAT WE SAW HIM, AND THAT THE THINGS GOD NEEDED TO SAY TO HIM WERE DELIVERED.
 
ABOUT THE TIME, I SAID THAT I WAS ABSOLUTELY HIT WITH AN UNUSUALLY STRONG SENSE OF TREMBLING. Now, when I minister to people, or when I am in a prophetic vein of ministry, whether I’m teaching, or whether I am literally delivering words of knowledge, words of wisdom or songs of the Lord, I am aware of an intense presence and weight of the glory of the Lord, but this was definitely different.
 
I WASN’T SURE I COULD FINISH WHAT I WAS SAYING TO HIM.
I WAS LITERALLY WEEPING AND SHAKING TRYING TO TELL THIS YOUNG MAN WHAT GOD WANTED TO SAY TO HIM.
And so I spoke in my weakness, and absolutely in this undone state that I was in.
The Holy Spirit began to tell him that he himself is one of the chosen of God. That he has been called to minister to his people, to his own culture of people.(Side-note: I’m not sure if he was First Native/First Nations Individual or of Asian descent or a combination of both, but his features seemed to indicate that.) 
 
The Holy Spirit then had me say to him, “you don’t know how you’re going to pull this off.”  You don’t know how you’re going to get to the people but the Lord says to tell you that he has called you and that you are being positioned and prepared and you were sent here today to receive this confirmation.” The Holy Spirit said to tell him, “You can do this! You can do this because I have called you and have chosen you and I have set you apart. I’ve set you aside to do this work for me. You’ve been struggling and you’ve been wrestling with the Lord today and asked Him to speak to you. The Lord says to you that he will give you the courage and the strength and the ability to do what he has called you to do.”
 
“YOU ARE NOT TO BE AFRAID AND YOU’RE NOT TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK.
You simply step in and obey and begin to minister to those around you and the Lord is going to make the way for you. He’s going to open the doors and prepare the way for you. Then again, the Holy Spirit said, “Don't be afraid and question how God is going to do this, because you have been chosen, and we were sent to you today to tell you this.” I had told him that I had been a pastor that I had been a missionary, and continue to mentor, as well as do pastoral counseling, and have worked many hard side jobs, even now as we still serve the Lord.
 
I also told him it is not easy!  
I told him that it will take great courage, and it will take great faith that only comes from God to be able to want to even continue. Especially during the times that you see the impossible as impossible to handle! But, that He would not be alone. That the Holy Spirit will come and give him the strength and speak to him and tell him what to do. Because He, is Chosen.
 
HE WAS WEEPING, AND GENTLY AND HUMBLY HAD HIS HEAD BOWED.
THIS IS A YOUNG MAN GOD IS PREPARING TO USE,
IN THIS TIME IN THE EARTH!
HE WAS HUMBLE, AND HE WAS WILLING TO RECEIVE.
 
I asked him if I could pray for him and lay my hand on him.
He nodded his head and said, “Yes, please! Please!”
Now about this time Steve had come out the side door himself, and stood off to the side, and was praying in the spirit because he could tell that I was engaged, and he didn’t want to break the flow of what God was doing.
 
I GENTLY LAID MY HAND ON THE YOUNG MAN’S SHOULDER NEAR HIS COLLARBONE, and began to pray for him, and ask the Holy Spirit to impart and infuse him with great courage and great wisdom, and great direction during this time in his life. That he would surround him with people who would cheer him on, but also help him to be strong and accountable so he would not be taken out by the temptations that often come to young people in ministry, as well as anyone in ministry!
Again, the power of God and the presence of God was so strong he and I both were shaking and weeping. This was as if a commissioning of God was taking place right there in that side lobby of a movie theater. And yet there was no one else observing this! Well, no one else in “the natural”,     except Steve, but it was as if the heavens opened up and there was a shaft of divine glory and a commissioning of the Lord taking place over this young man.
 
This year Steve and I have had the opportunity to ordain someone who served the Lord alongside us for many years, and then moved to another state. On top of that, the Lord has been sending us more and more individuals for mentoring and training and we believe there will be more commissioning and more ordaining in the days ahead because God is beginning to send out more and more people who have served faithfully, without ever having had a title or a position named out in a church function or a church body. They just continue to do the works of the Spirit of God without fanfare.
 
AND SO IT SEEMED AS IF THIS WAS ANOTHER DIVINE,
UNSCRIPTED APPOINTMENT OF THE LORD.
As I finished praying with this young man, I just put my arm around his neck and hugged him and told him that, “He could do this! God is with you!” He held on to me and was weeping and kept saying, “Thank you, thank you so much! I can’t tell you how much this means. Thank you!”  And then he simply took off down the hallway and went out the door to the parking lot.
 
Once again, Steve and I stood there and I had to go lean against a wall for a few minutes, because the presence of God was so very tangibly strong. I was saying to the Lord, “Here we  are Lord! Use us to your fullest!” Steve began to say the same things.  “Lord, we are weary, we are poured out, and we are tired! Yet, your presence and your power and your strength comes and ignites the fire to once again deliver the word of the Lord to whoever you send to us!”
 
We finally got ourselves together and decided to go to a nearby restaurant called Red Robin and split a hamburger and a salad. We had a few space heaters that we were going to use in our home to keep it warm while waiting for this furnace situation to be addressed, and quite honestly, we just didn’t want to go home to a cold house and cook dinner and try to warm everything up all at the same time. 
 
I was still very tender hearted and contemplating as we came into the restaurant and sat down at the table.We were quiet and we were thinking of what just happened and just sat there for a bit until our waitress came. She looked at me and asked me if I was OK! I smiled at her and I said, “I’m actually really wonderful, but we just had an intense experience watching a movie and it has tremendously moved us emotionally and we’ve got a lot to think about.”
 
AND GUESS WHAT?
She looked at us and said, “What happened? What movie was this?”
And once again, that power of God dropped down on us. With tears pouring down my face, I told her about what “The Chosen” was. Now, this girl was not a believer! But! She tenderly looked at me and she said, “I need something like this !I need something meaningful! I need something that I can enjoy and that helps me to feel better during the Christmas season!”
So I told her about the app, I told her about the season one and two being a free opportunity to watch. She said she wanted to watch season one and two, first, and then she would go with her friends to watch season three because she thinks her friends might need to see it too. We then ordered our meal and just sat there and looked at each other again and said this is what we live for! YAY GOD!!!
Several times throughout the meal she came by and just stood there and wanted to talk to us. You could tell she was feeling something, she was sensing something.
 
She was sensing what her soul was longing for, and that was safety in the presence of the Lord and safety in the presence of his people.
 
She didn’t know how to define it, but she was longing for it. As we got ready to leave, she came over and thanked us and told us how much it meant for her to talk with us and meet us at that time.
 
STEVE AND I GOT OUT INTO THE CAR AND JUST SAT THERE AGAIN IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD, KNOWING THAT WE WERE SPECIFICALLY SET APART FOR THAT VERY DAY, FOR THOSE TWO INDIVIDUAL SOULS TO HEAR OF THE HOPE AND THE TRUTH AND THE LIGHT OF CHRIST.
 
WE KNOW THAT WE ARE IN A TIME RIGHT NOW WHERE GOD IS LOOKING BACK-AND-FORTH ACROSS THE EARTH FOR HIS PEOPLE WHO HAVE PREPARED AND WHO DISCIPLE AND TO TRAIN OTHERS.
BUT ABOVE ALL, HE’S LOOKING FOR THOSE WHO HEAR THE VOICE OF THE  HOLY SPIRIT AND OBEY THE VOICE OF THE SPIRIT PROMPTLY.
 
MY DEAR LISTENERS!
I CAN TELL YOU THAT SOME OF THINGS THE HOLY SPIRIT IS TELLING YOU TO DO OR NOT TO DO IS CRUCIAL IN THIS TIME THAT WE ARE LIVING IN.
If you have even the slightest hesitation inside of you about something you are about to commit to, and you do not feel at peace, no matter what others think about you, you must withdraw, you must not do that thing.
 
WE ARE IN A TIME WHERE THE ENEMY IS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO SNARE AND TRIP UP INDIVIDUALS, TO DESTROY BELIEVERS AND GET THEM OFF THE TRACK OF HEARING THE LORD’S VOICE, AND ABOVE ALL, OBEYING THE LORD‘S VOICE.
 
The word of the Lord says, “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” (Isaiah 30:21)
 
IF YOU DON’T HEAR THE VOICE OF THE LORD TELLING YOU WHICH DIRECTION TO WALK, THEN YOU DON’T MOVE. But if you do hear him, you get up and run like I did towards that individual or that situation that God is going to immerse you into.
 
This powerful presence that can shake our flesh to the core is what God is about to pour out upon those who are willing to hear the voice of the Lord, and no matter what the cost, no matter what the assignment, they run towards it!
He is also going to bring a strong conviction over those who are moving out of his will, because they are still moving in the patterns of the things they feel they want to do for him and he has not made that way clear. Others are pushing and attempting to motivate many, into things that are not of the Lord right now.
 
WHAT IS THE KEY ELEMENT THAT GOD IS USING RIGHT NOW?
 It is an atmosphere that you choose to step into through worship.
Through worshipping, waiting in his presence, and praying and interceding. And, there will be during that time, a great presence of the Lord where there will also be much repentance and adjustment done to our souls. Why? Because God knows that the days are dark, men are evil, and human beings are easily led away from doing difficult things.
 
WHAT IS THE LORD IS SHOWING YOU TO DO DURING THIS SEASON?
There are hundreds of thousands of people that are longing for one word of encouragement, one word of kindness and the Lord is calling up all of his troops, all of his great army of believers to be on the alert for the opportunity to let the glory of God come and move through you to reach out to those who are now facing this confusing, dark time.
 
 
LET’S PRAY TOGETHER RIGHT NOW!
Heavenly Father! I pray that you help people to be strong and courageous to not be troubled nor be dismayed for in Isaiah you said, I the Lord am with you and I will hold you up with my righteous right hand! 
 
Lord, we ask that you use us to the fullest extent of your glory until there’s nothing left in us! Oh Lord, I pray that those that who are listening to this podcast today would feel your presence drop down around them and that they too would weep and stand before you, and pray saying those words, “Here I am Lord! Send me!” 
Lord I ask that you would open their eyes to see the many who are just waiting for them to come and speak to them. We adore and give you all honor today Father, in the most marvelous and mighty name of Jesus! Amen!
 
I truly hope that you were encouraged and inspired by this wonderful experience that I shared with you and I also hope that you will pop back in next week when I will have another amazing Christmas “Miracle story” to share with you and that it will encourage you and challenge you to take a risk and step out and let the Lord use you in the most wonderful and seemingly impossible situations!
Goodbye for now!
May God greatly bless you with Peace, Joy,
and great Anticipation of how he’s going to use you.

RED ALERT: A VISION OF THE COMING STORM
“THE FORCE OF GOD’S POWER OVER THE EARTH”
By Mary Lindow – through the Holy Spirit
 
BEFORE WE BEGIN:
I’m going to kindly ask you to please be patient and take the time to listen to this as a crucial podcast, due to the important timing. I have recorded the entire vision as well as what the Lord has shown me as to what it all means in the audio form, but I will only be able to share with you in the text form here when I explained a little bit about what happened in this tremendous vision. It takes so much bandwidth to put the entire message into the text and it really is a very tedious and difficult process.
Please listen! The vision alone is in the notes below.
 
I am returning now with a podcast that I had promised to have follow the previous podcast where I talked about “A time of review, before the new”. This podcast is one that I have sat on for about a year, due to the fact of it being pretty intense for me receiving this from the Lord.
Trying to figure out how to put into words what you see in the spirit in a vision from the Lord, and understanding it and then, scripturally applying what you have seen and learned is daunting. For me it’s a very serious and holy thing, and I wanted to make sure that I really presented it at the time and in the way that the Lord would want me to.
We’re going to get started with that but before I do I want you to know that at the end of my podcast I will be sharing about two different conferences that the Lord has opened the door for me to go and minister at, so those of you who often if ask if I’m going to be in your area, those doors and opening up again since the WuhanCovid19 bio weapon attack on our world, so you can look that up at the end and also my website has all the information you would need about those conferences.
 
THIS VISION HAS A LITTLE BIT OF GROUNDWORK IN IT.
In my last podcast I shared about a vision or a word from the Lord that I had in 2016 called, “The Great Coming Whirlwind” and I also shared about what the Lord was wanting us to see and was adjusting what we needed to look at in our hearts, regarding where we are at right now in this time on the earth.
 
I BELIEVE THAT THIS VISION THAT I HAD FROM THE LORD IS SO “RIGHT NOW” IN THE TIMING, THE PRECISION TIMING OF THE LORD TO SHARE. I am almost shaking a little bit as I share it and I feel a little bit of trembling sharing it, because I know we are coming up to a climax of something in the earth, and God is not mocked, and he is not a fool, and God is not afraid, nor is he worried.
 
HE WILL NOT IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM, ALLOW WICKEDNESS TO RULE AND REIGN.
But in that process, God does a deep work within his own people, because if there’s wickedness in his own he must Judge fairly and rightly, and he’s so good to give us time to get repentance going, to be accountable, to get the help we need. When we don’t, he has to bring his pure and righteous hand of judgment, and he has to do “cleaning house” because, God does not tolerate darkness in his light.
 
I’M GOING TO BEGIN TO SHARE THE VISION WITH THE SCRIPTURE VERSE THAT STARTED WITH THIS VISION.
It’s the picture that you will see on the podcast graphic itself.
I’d like you to take a look at it and please, have mercy and grace over me, because trying to put a graphic together and combine it all with what I saw, and how I saw it, was a challenge. The scripture verse that started this vision was very intense and of course, when we don’t understand what the word is always saying sometimes we’re a little not sure what we do with this, so I did a lot of studying and praying and referencing, before I chose to really open myself up to recording this.
 
THAT SCRIPTURE VERSE IS NAHUM 1:3-4 
‘The Lord is slow to anger but great in power, the Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet. He rebukes the sea and dries it up, and he makes all the rivers run dry.”
 
I WAS IN OUR LOWER LEVEL IN OUR BASEMENT AND I HAD BEEN WORSHIPING, JUST TALKING TO THE LORD, PRAYING ABOUT ALL THAT WAS GOING ON IN THE EARTH, and began to get up to walk towards the area to go up the stairway and all of a sudden I felt this presence of the Lord come on me, and I know when this happens, he’s getting ready to speak to me or show me something, or I’m being called into immediate intercession for something. 
 
I’VE JUST LEARNED TO STOP AND STAND THERE AND SAY, “LORD WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT ME TO DO, TO KNOW?
I’M HERE, SPEAK TO ME.”
I was just absolutely feeling weak, just like I was going to faint. I was under such a strong drawing to his presence, and so I began to walk and went upstairs and went into my room, a guest room we have, but I use it as my reading and praying room, and sat down in the chair there.  About the time I sat down I was, (and I share this, it’s so uncomfortable to share when you have these experiences) because the world and often in charismatic environments, either they mock what happens to someone or unfortunately, in Spirit-filled charismatic environments, things get hyper sensationalized, to the point that someone’s having a vision every moment, every five minutes they’ve got a word from the Lord and they’re rushing to post it or print it (and that’s up to them), but we tend to get very critical and may be jaded that when something authentic really happens to someone we immediately put it through this filter of,  “I don’t know”,  and so I understand your possible hesitancy to say, “we’ll see”.
 
THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH TESTING A VISION OR WORD OF GOD, YOU ABSOLUTELY SHOULD, but what I’m saying to you is I come before you with this because the Lord has a warning and a promise in it, and I am compelled by him to share this as quickly and as succinctly as I can with you now, to the best of my ability, by the Spirit of God.
 
So, I was sitting in the chair and I am now suddenly standing out in a barren area, up on a slight hill, and I was looking out over the land in front of me, and in the back distance I can see some slight hills so I kind of recognize the horizon, maybe some foothills in Colorado, and there was a sun trying to somewhat set in the background, like it was at the low level before sunset in Autumn in Colorado. It kind of just rests there in a yellow type of reddish tint.
I was standing there looking at all of this, my physical body was standing looking and yet I was above it in the spirit, watching this take place and the Holy Spirit was with me, instructing me about what I was to be observing.
 
NEXT TO ME WAS JESUS;  HE WAS STANDING THERE BY MY SIDE.
Now before I step forward I want you to know that I had no idea why in this vision Jesus was the way he was, until after I’d had the vision because a week later we had been helping care for a little foster baby girl, and a brand new baby grandson. Our youngest son had gotten food poisoning, so we went down to help care for these children. The little girl tended to be very ill because she needed medical care and was forever getting respiratory infections.  So, we were cleaning and doing everything parents do to help and assist, and of course, holding the new grand baby!
 
I WAS IN THERE WITH CLOROX, GETTING “EVERYTHING” WITH CLOROX and my face was probably down in germs, so what we did not know at the time, is that my son probably had a second round of Covid, and was reacting to it, it was a different strain, but the little girl had RSV, so both my husband and I came home, and shortly within 48 hours began with symptoms of massive RSV also the “big gun” Covid strain that everybody got, and in that process it was weeks of fighting to get well. Colorado forbade any kind of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Of course we’d been taking all the vitamin protocols and so on, but we were able through missionaries, to get ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, but we did not know we had what we had until it got so bad. 
 
WE KNEW WE WERE PRETTY MUCH ON OUR OWN WITH THE LORD, and we didn’t want anybody coming to take care of us, because we didn’t want to infect them.
 
I WAS LYING ON THE BED AND, JESUS WAS STANDING BY THE BED. I WAS AT A POINT WHERE I KNEW I HAD ONLY A FEW SHALLOW BREATHS LEFT, THAT THIS WAS IT!
I was walking in the “valley” of the shadow of death, and I have learned since then, that there is death and there’s “the valley of the shadow of death” where you were in the shadow of it, that it’s right next to you, but there’s a shadow of death over you, and it says that, “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you are with me”, and sure enough, during that time when I had the last two shallow breaths that I thought that I was going to take, my words to Jesus were, “if I die and I don’t wake up, I have to sleep now, then I’m with you.” I was travailing and crying for a good 48 hours because I was sad. Then the other part of me said, “Lord, if I wake up and I’m still here then use me to the fullest all that you can until it IS my time!”
 
I WAS EXPECTING BELLS AND WHISTLES AND ANGELS,
AND YOU KNOW! THE SMELL OF FRANKINCENSE AND SINGING BIRDS, AND THE GLORY OF GOD TO COME AND RAISE ME UP OFF THE BED!  
I REALLY DID EXPECT IT!
  
BUT WHAT HAPPENED INSTEAD was that there was a steady “non-emotional”, INTENSE PRESENCE that stood by my side, and the voice spoke “I AM”, and it was with authority! 
 
IT WASN’T MESSING WITH ME AND ANYTHING EMOTIONAL. It was a fact that whatever he was in that moment, sustained me.  I could see in the spirit a sash across him and I could see him holding my hand.  I was breathing so shallowly and I said, “I’m sorry Jesus, I have to go to sleep. Whatever happens, I trust you.”
And I did! 
 
WHEN I WOKE UP I WAS TOTALLY AWARE AND AWAKE AND KNEW THAT I HAD LIVED, (it was many hours later) and I immediately heard the Holy Spirit say, “Start the Ivermectin!” 
From that point on I won’t go any further, because that’s when the healing process began, but I wanted to tell you about Jesus standing by my side looking at me intently, holding my hand in the spirit. There was not any kind of crying and he wasn’t showing sadness or compassion or emotion. He WAS the sovereign presence holding me together.
 
 
 NOW WE GO BACK TO THE VISION.
I am standing there, Jesus is with me I’m looking out over land, and the land was so parched! The ground was curling up and looked dry like rectangle sizes, you could just probably pull a piece up like a slab of cardboard that has sat out in the sun, and was curled up around the corners. The entire landmass in front of me was covered in this parched, dry desert, and I was looking at it saying, “it’s so dry! There’s just nothing of moisture here!”
 
I was asking Jesus, “What am I looking at, what am I seeing?” Jesus was just looking at me saying, “You’re learning, I want you to observe, you’re to learn to take this in.”  I kept looking and seeing this, as I was looking out further on the horizon. This was to the left of me Jesus was standing to the right of me.
 
I looked up past the shoulder of Jesus and in the distance to the right or him, I saw a swirling, boiling looking red cloud, and it was the color of terra-cotta, like garden pots that we used to put plants in, that earthy clay soil color. I’m watching this dust cloud boil and boil and grow larger and larger, and I’m getting a little concerned because it’s a pretty high in the sky, but it’s coming our direction, it’s kind of at a vanishing point angle. Here it comes, and it’s starting to make a noise, it’s swishing and beginning to drop the dust down on the ground and blow across this dry parched area as it began to come my direction. I was concerned and Jesus took me by the hand. It was again, “I AM here no matter what happens, no matter what comes, I AM!” 
 
Then I suddenly begin to see that the cloud is being pushed by something! Something is driving this cloud forward and it was a sleek dynamic train. I tried to make it look right in my art piece that I created for it, it’s not quite right, it was more sleek and dynamic, but it was the best I could come up with.
 
This train had these massive wheels that were turning, and you could hear the power, the dynamic power, the clicking, nothing was missing, not one cylinder was off, it was churning and churning and chuffing and chuffing. Nothing was going to stop the destination of this train.  It was driving a storm forward pushing the storm.
 
The sound became so loud and powerful that you tremble at the strength and the might, and the power of the force of this train! As it was moving up above us, the dirt of this cloud of dust was sifting down over Jesus and me. It was such a fine, silty reddish soil. I could see it gathering in the beard of Jesus, then his hair and in the vision I had much longer hair, it was falling down into my hair and on our arms when I was holding his hand. I could see it gathering on the sleeve of my arm and on his sleeve. Jesus kept looking at me, and as long as I kept referencing back to him as the storm was dumping this mass amount of whatever it was, the substance that was being driven by this force, driven out - driven over, as long as I looked at him, I had a non-emotional response, but a steady understanding that knew I was being held by a power greater than anything that could ever come against me.
 
This went on and on. The dust was so clogged and cloudy that I could just see the silhouette of Jesus, but I had his hand and we held our hands and stood there as this loud, powerful, dynamic train began to just roar over the top of us. Then I heard a voice shout out over the sound of all this and it was firm!  “It’s DUNAMIS! Dunamis! The Dunamis Power!”
 
I STOOD THERE JUST SAYING, “DUNAMIS, I KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS IN THE GREEK, IT MEANS DYNAMITE, DYNAMO, (saying this to myself in the spirit).”  I’m standing here in this vision trying to remember the power of that word as the train was passing and that word was written on the train, as I watched it finally pass by and begin to go further up in the sky and then pass by us.
 
SUDDENLY IT GOT QUIETER, AND IT WAS AN EARTH SHAKING VIBRATING STORM THAT WAS DRIVEN BY THIS FORCEFUL DUNAMIS POWER OF GOD.  Again, the Holy Spirit and I were standing up at the back watching this, watching Jesus and me at the same time, and the Holy Spirit was saying to me,  “watch, learn, observe.”
 
ONCE AGAIN JESUS TURNED HIS HEAD AND LOOKED OUT OVER THE VALLEY AND INDICATED TO ME, “I WANT YOU TO LOOK OUT HERE”.
AS I LOOKED, THE DUST HAD BEGUN TO SETTLE AND I COULD IDENTIFY THAT WE HAVEN’T BEEN MOVED,
Nothing was different, I’m in the same place, except the Horizon in the background looks the same, the sun is the exact same place it was, just about ready set, sitting in the same position in the sky, but the land that has been parched and curled up and dry, every single crevice or crevasse, every single surface was covered in this thick layer of this red dust. It had completely transformed into a different look, and different land.
 
AT THAT POINT I WAS JUST IN AWE AND I DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT ALL MEANT AND THEN...
...WHAM!
I AM BACK OUT OF THE VISION AND SITTING IN MY CHAIR, gasping at what have I just had happen to me, and of course I started crying!
I WAS ASKING GOD TO SHOW ME “Father! Father! Jesus! Holy Spirit! What have you just shown me? What are you saying?”
 
Then I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, “These are things to come.
Learn about them, prepare, and I’ll tell you when to share.”

By Mary Lindow
TODAY I AM GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE TRUTH AND REALITY OF HOW GOD, AND WHY GOD USES DREAMS AND VISIONS, WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE, WORDS OF WISDOM AND PROPHETIC WORDS TO DIRECT US, ENCOURAGE US, AND TO PROTECT US!
I’m also sharing a very recent dream that I had and how it confirmed God’s plan for a local church that Steve and I were invited to minister at.
SO OFTEN PEOPLE THINK THE LORD ONLY SPEAKS TO “SPECIFIC PEOPLE” AND THAT HE CANNOT SPEAK TO THEM IN THE SAME WAY. So, I think we need to understand clearly as believers what the Lord said in Jeremiah 33:3.
‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
He also says in the book of James if any man lacks wisdom let him ask of God who will give to all liberally and will not withhold it!
The one big catchall is that people think God‘s going to speak to them at the same time or in the same way or in the same fashion he has previously, and so when they don’t hear from him the same way all the time, they wonder somehow if they’ve missed it.
 
TIME AND TIME AGAIN THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT NIGHT VISIONS AND DREAMS THAT THE LORD USED TO INSTRUCT HIS PEOPLE, AND TO PROTECT THEM! 
Here are a few Bible verses that give examples of biblical dreams, provide guidance on how to verify the source of this type of revelation, and show God's purpose in using them.
Amos 3:7 – "Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets."
Daniel 1:17 – "To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all kinds."
Job 33:14-15 – "For God does speak—now one way, now another—though no one perceives it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds. 
ONE THING ABOUT HEARING FROM THE LORD IS THIS. 
There has to be an element of the Word of God undergirding anything you receive in a vision, in a dream, or through other people who are used in the prophetic gifts of word of knowledge and word of wisdom! It is out of the word of God that prophecy then is solidified!
 
I’M GOING TO SHARE WITH YOU ONE OF MY MOST RECENT EXPERIENCES to encourage you to know that as we act upon what the Holy Spirit shows us, he can then move corporately. He likes to move among groups of people!
 
STEVE AND I WERE RECENTLY INVITED TO SPEAK AT A WONDERFUL FELLOWSHIP NOT TOO FAR FROM OUR HOME IN A CITY CALLED BRIGHTON, COLORADO. So, we were praying about it and told the pastor and his wife that we wanted to pray first before we committed to saying we would come, because, we wanted to make sure what we were supposed to share, and to be sure it was the right timing.
We had gone to bed one evening and I had gotten back out of bed up to get some water and was just restless and not ready to sleep. I read for a while and finally got tired enough to go back to bed and fell into a deep sleep. 
I THEN HAD A VERY VIVID DREAM. In the dream I was standing up behind a pulpit or podium, and Steve was standing there with me and I looked out into the congregation and I saw a young man who was very tall and had on a gray colored t-shirt, he had a beard and had a baseball cap on and was wearing black framed glasses. He was halfway between the congregation and about six seats in and he was to my right as I was facing him. 
AS I WAS STANDING THERE, I FELT THE HOLY SPIRIT STANDING BEHIND ME. He said to me, “People want to receive their prayer language. If you will tell people exactly what I want you to say, I’m going to move on and within them today. They’re going to experience the fullness of my joy with their prayer language by speaking in tongues.” 
So, in the dream I said these words, “I had a dream and the Holy Spirit showed me that they were people here who would be moved on by the Holy Spirit and will receive the blessing of praying tongues, and there are many here who have been afraid of it or who have not been able to get a release for some reason when they were prayed for. As I stand here and begin to pray the Holy Spirit‘s going to come on you in a very gentle and soft presence, and we’re just going to all lift our voices and in that moment and you’re going to be able to be released to pray in tongues.”  
In the dream, I was watching the young man and I pointed out him and I said,  “You are one who has been wanting the Lord to bless you with speaking of tongues aren’t you” and he raised his hand up and was crying and he said “yes”, and in that moment I just said to him that the Holy Spirit is gently touching you right now, just begin to open your mouth and begin to speak, and he did! He immediately began to pray in this beautiful prayer language and then the whole place erupted with people cheering and crying and the room was filled with the Spirit of God and the whole room was lifted up in worship and praise to God with people praying in tongues and laughing joyfully. There was lots of crying and worship, because they could feel the love and kindness of the Lord everywhere.
 
I THEN WENT BACK TO SLEEP AND SLEPT DEEPLY I GUESS, BECAUSE WHEN I WOKE UP IN THE MORNING I WAS AWARE THAT I HAD SLEPT LONG AND HARD.Steve was already up and was drinking coffee and reading, so I told him about the dream and that the Holy Spirit had said that there were people at this church (the church’s name is “Fearless Church”) that had been wanting to receive their prayer language and speak in tongues, but they just had not had the release, or, anyone help them with that. So I told him that the Holy Spirit said if we will tell them that the Holy Spirit said that there were those to be filled today, the Lord would honor it and he would do a great and precious thing in that service.
 
NOW, WE HAD NOT YET BEEN IN THIS COUPLE’S NEW CHURCH FACILITY BEFORE BECAUSE WE HAD KNOWN THEM FROM THEIR OLDER BUILDING LOCATION.
When we walked in, it was exactly like the building that I saw in my dream which was amazing, because I didn’t even realize it until we walked in, so I knew this was definitely the time and the place for what God was wanting to do with this special meeting.
After very beautiful worship, Steve got up and began to share his message and was teaching. I was just kind of looking around and then paying attention to what Steve was sharing and you could begin to feel this calm and peace come over all of us. 
 
STEVE SHARED ABOUT THE LOVE OF THE FATHER AND ABOUT HOW MUCH GOD IS CALLING US TO A PLACE OF GREATER HUNGER FOR HIS PRESENCE.
As he began to wind up that part of the message, I joined him on the platform and began to share about what words of knowledge and prophetic ministry, (what they were), and as I looked out into the congregation, there was the guy halfway down the middle to the right about six seats in that I had seen in my dream.  He had on the exact same gray T-shirt, he had the beard he had the black glasses and he was very tall.
 
I JUST BEGAN TO ACT OUT AND SPEAK EXACTLY WHAT I SAW IN THE DREAM THAT THE LORD HAD GIVEN TO ME AND I SAID THE EXACT WORDS, and sure enough this young man lifts up his hand and we began to lift our voices and he was immediately overwhelmed with the power of God, and began to speak out in his prayer language.
 
WE BEGAN TO TELL OTHER PEOPLE TO BEGIN TO LIFT THEIR VOICES and do the same thing, and the entire room began to speak out in their tongues or they were praising God or just praying in English, and some people were praising in Spanish, but for a long time there were many people were just spontaneously being filled with the Holy Spirit and speaking with the evidence of tongues in languages they had never spoken. 
NOW, THIS LED TO A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF JOYAND ALL WERE SHOCKED AND IN AWE AT THE PRESENCE OF GODSUDDENLY OVERWHELMING THEIR CONGREGATION!
 They had been through a very difficult time since they had had such lockdown and restriction problems and pressure from the local government. There had been a lot of grief and death and a lack of continuity in the people. It seemed as if the Holy Spirit just wanted to come in and bring this peace and hope to them.
 
NOT TOO FAR AFTER THAT THEN, WE BEGAN TO MINISTER IN THE PROPHETIC GIFTS OF WORD OF KNOWLEDGE AND WORD OF WISDOM.People stayed for an additional full hour! We did not ask them to do this!  They were hungry to be loved, they were hungry to be at peace, and they were like gentle lambs receiving the word of the Lord, even some words that were not easy to receive.  But the atmosphere was primed, simply by a dream that the Holy Spirit had given to me, and then asking us to obey him and act on what we had seen and heard in the dream.
 
WHAT I’M SAYING ABOUT ALL OF THIS IS THAT,SOMETIMES IT TAKES JUST A DREAM OR A VISION OR A THOUGHTTHAT COMES TO YOUR MIND WHILE YOU’RE GOING ABOUT YOUR DAILY BUSINESS.
It is a catalyst then that the Holy Spirit can use to open the door to a sweeter or greater move of God in a meeting or a gathering, or in a coffee shop, depending on where the Lord happens to have you go.
He knows exactly what to do in every situation that we are sent into, and knowing the timing of the Lord was right for us to go minister to this body of believers, was all because of the fruit of prayer.
 
I NOW WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SHARE OR UPDATE YOUABOUT SOMETHING THAT THE LORD HAD ME SHARE A FEW MONTHS AGO REGARDING CANADA.
I will include the link right below for you to go read or listen to the entire word again, but again, when the Holy Spirit begins to speak he does confirm these things.
LINK: https://tinyurl.com/xzk2hvh8
WORD FOR CANADA STARTS AT MINUTE MARKER 11:34
 
MANY OF YOU ARE AWARE OF THE THINGS GOING ON AT THE CANADIAN BORDER AND OF COURSE, THE ENTIRE GLOBE IS FIGHTING TYRANNY. 
In this prophetic word the Lord had me share something that I did not understand at the time, but I knew that I needed to deliver the word AT that time. Now in review, it is happening and coming to pass.
 
HERE’S WHAT THAT WORD SAID.
“Canada will experience one of its most prosperous seasons ever known, for a short season.
 The Lord would have Canada know that they must deal fairly with the wealth that they will produce and pay back the First Native families, and with Godly equity. 
If this is not addressed with wisdom and integrity, Canada will have to pass through the sorrows of disobedience.
Canadian Intercessors are being awakened and called up to stand in the place of prayer for its leaders and tribes.
Now is the time for soberness, It is not a time for silliness and laughter. 
It is a sober day, with a command for sober prayers. 
 "Accordingly then, let us not sleep, as the rest do, but let us keep wide awake (alert, watchful, cautious, and on our guard) and let us be sober (calm, collected, and circumspect)". - 1 Thessalonians 5:6 
“So get up! Stand UP! Be Purposeful,” says the Lord!
How do you not know that through your borders I can bring a North American Wave of Justice and Restoration?” 
 
As you have just heard or have just read, the Lord knew these events were going to take place on the border of the United States and Canada way before I ever spoke it out.I am certain that the Lord spoke these words or similar words to other men and women of God.
 
MONTHS AGO HE BREATHED THESE WORDS OUT SO THAT OTHERS MIGHT HEAR THEM AND PRAY ABOUT THEM.I believe that when the Lord gives a word especially specific to any nation, it is first a call to prayer and repentance. From that then, the outbreak of moves of God can take place.
 
I ENCOURAGE YOU TO NOT FEAR THE SUPERNATURAL. If you are grounded in the Word of God and a person filled with the spirit, God is going to speak to your spirit and instruct you in the way you should go. He is not going to talk to your mind, because you will talk yourself out of anything that takes risk or costs you laying down your own intellectual reckoning.
 
WE ARE LIVING IN A TIME WHERE HEARING FROM GOD  WILL LITERALLY SAVE YOUR LIFE. It is not a time to hope we have everybody else hear from God, and tell us what to do.I am almost certain that anything I share today is something the Lord has been stirring in the hearts of the majority of you that are listening. And it is confirming things deep in your spirit that you needed to have sorted out in order for you to proceed.
 
MY PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY IS THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THERE IS A STIRRING IN THE HEART OF GOD TO MOVE UPON HIS PEOPLE IN A DYNAMIC AND EXTREME POWER THAT SHAKES THE CORE OF EVIL IN THE WORLD.
It will cause a great upheaval, because darkness resists light. 
But light penetrates past darkness. 
 
YOU ARE A LIGHT IN THIS WORLD, BECAUSE OF THE LAMP OF CHRIST INSIDE OF YOU. 
Take the bushel basket off and let that light shine.
Yes it may cost you something.
If it doesn’t cost you something to be strong in the Lord then we are pretty much guaranteed to be lukewarm and passive.
 
THESE ARE THE DAYS THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR YOU AND I.
He planned for you to be here today in this very hour in this very moment. He has words to speak out of your mouth that are his words that will help break the darkness over peoples lives that have no ability to understand how captive they are to the narratives of the world.
 
Don’t underestimate the power of God’s words coming out of your mouth when you are talking to someone. 
It takes just one anointed obedient act to set a captive free.It takes just one obedient act done while stepping out in courage to open the ears of someone who has been deafened to truth most of their life.
If the words are rejected, understand that a seed went inside of them and was planted. Someone else may come along and water that seed, and someone else may harvest what comes from that.
But in the end you were obedient to plant the seed, and all of the joy and the glory and honor of a new soul or someone set free, goes to Jesus.
 
Psalm 31:24 is what I want to speak over each of you today!!
TAKE COURAGE!
“Be strong and take heart, 
All you who hope in the LORD.”

By Mary Lindow
Last year on December 21st 2020 (which was the 1st Day of Winter) Steve and I drove to pick up salads for our dinner. It had been a challenging month having just had his Mother pass into heaven while in WuhanCovid-19 lockdowns in a nursing facility. 
 
To be honest, we were a little weary and tender in heart, and still had preparations to do for our Family Christmas Day dinner and celebration with our Son Joel and his wife Angela and our 4 Grandchildren. Our youngest son Tim and his wife Liz were in Texas with her family. This had also been during the most severe time of lockdowns and restrictions in our State.
Everything felt hard, and dark, and mean.
 
As we were driving away after picking up salads,
my sister texted and asked if we were going to look for
the  “Christmas Star”,
Or, the two planet convergence taking place that evening at dusk. I had wanted to see this and had forgotten! So we aimed the car West and watched the sky!
 
We live at an altitude of 5290 feet above sea level and have a glorious view of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. At this specific time of year the sun sits at a very low angle in the western sky and when it dips behind the mountains, there is an almost greenish-aqua reflective light, and at 5:15 MDST we saw the "Christmas Star" or two planets very closely spaced together (to human eyes) start to take shape in the Western sky.
 
We quickly drove to a favorite hilltop location, not too far from our home where we often go to walk and enjoy a complete 360-degree view of our surrounding area and state. We thought that at night and away from city lights we’d have a great place to see this phenomenon and view it away from too many people. This event marked the first time since 1623 that the two planets Saturn and Jupiter have passed this close to one another and also marked the nearly 800 years since the planets aligned at night. As a result, some have referred to the planetary alignment as forming a "Christmas star," in reference to the Star of Bethlehem, since the event falls only a few days before Christmas.
 
As we drove in thinking we’d take the dirt road up to the hill where there was a parking area, all around us there were HUNDREDS of people parked on the dirt driveway up the hill and on the side streets of the neighborhood surrounding it!
 
HUNDREDS of people were standing on the hill, looking Westward and upward, looking for the "Christmas Star".
The most unusual thing was taking place though.
There was a hushed "awe" in this big crowd.
 
People were either talking low or they were whispering, as if this was a sacred moment not to be disrespected by loud noises. No one was talking on his or her cell phones! WOW!
 
You could feel the questions and the cries and thoughts of those standing there watching and looking up into the sky.  You could sense the desperation of many wanting to know what to do in such and strange and dark time on planet earth and wondering why this event was taking place at this time!
 
We drove around the entirety of the hill's lower neighborhood road,
looking in amazement at all of the people, and a sudden wave
of what I would call "travail" moved me to tears and prayer.
 
Steve and I began to cry out the Father to touch the souls of those looking up into the sky, knowing that all of them are fully aware of the troubled days that they were living in. We prayed that they would risk and speak from their weary hearts to the God who hung those radiant planets that were glowing in the sky, just for them, just at this very moment in time.
 
God SO Loves the World!
He sent his Son...
…So the world might know His full expression of deep commitment to the people He created with the tips of His fingers and the breath of His being.
 
We saw more than just the "Star" that night!  We saw people, engaging in wonder!
 
Of course we know it wasn’t "THE" Christmas Star shining so very brightly in the sky, on the longest and darkest day/night of the year! (The Winter Solstice), but doesn't the Lord create things that would show signs and wonders in the heavenlies?
 
WHY DID GOD ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN THAT NIGHT,
DURING THE CUSTOMARY SEASON ON EARTH WHERE PEOPLE CELEBRATE
THE BIRTH OF CHRIST, WHEN THE EARTH WAS IN SUCH TURMOIL?
(And still is!)
 
Because He knows that if He can use something to draw people to himself,
He will do it! 
 
Psalm 57:10-11 says,
“Your love is so extravagant it reaches to the heavens;your faithfulness so astonishing it stretches to the sky!
Lord God, be exalted as you soar throughout the heavens.May your shining glory be shown in the skies!Let it be seen high above all the earth!”
 
Of course it’s was not the actual date of the birth of Jesus Christ in December,
nor was this the actual star that was seen by the shepherds and Wise men.
But God knows mankind knows the stories and that there was a Star to guide them, so, He wastes nothing in order to draw all men to himself.
 "This is what I will do in the last days— I will pour out  MY Spirit on everybody
and cause your sons and daughters to prophesy, and your young men will see visions
and your old men will experience dreams from God. 
The Holy Spirit will come upon all my servants,
men and women alike, and they will prophesy. 
I will reveal startling signs and wonders in the sky above,
and mighty miracles on the earth below.  - Acts 2:17 -19
 
These planets would be closest to each other in the sky on Dec. 21, appearing only a tenth of a degree apart but they would remain in close alignment for a few days and would be easily visible to the naked eye when looking toward the slight southwest west just after sunset on first day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere.
 
NOW! THIS IS THE PART WHERE THE KINDNESS
AND SUPERNATURAL TOUCH OF GOD,
TOOK PLACE FOR STEVE AND I!
 
We had had a very intense and sad family upset with some stressed out relatives the night before and had done a bit of damage control and counseling of everyone, but our hearts were hurting over words that had been spoken and the pain that they had caused for many. (Holidays can often bring out the dysfunctions and anger in some people who tend to not address personal issues.) We gently but firmly coached a few involved to see things more accurately and to go and correct there bad choice of words and apologize. They did, but the upset left everyone feeling grieved and raw.
 
On Christmas Eve we like to take a tray of home baked treats to a few of our neighbors and wish them a Joyful Christmas. I had asked Steve to run a final tray across the street to some neighbors who hadn’t been home earlier.  As I was standing at the kitchen sink rinsing out a bowl that had held cookie dough, I was talking to the Lord and sharing my heart and sadness with Him about missing my precious Mother in Law, the strangeness of the dark world of a bio-terror weapon that was causing such fear and sickness, and the grief I felt after the tense family situation. 
I asked Him to pour over Steve and I, his holiness and peace and I asked him to receive an offering of praise out of this sorrow, thanking him for coming to earth as a Savior in such a dark and wicked world.
 
I then had a thought that reminded me, that the “Christmas Star was still visible in the sky on that night and I realized the timing right then would be perfect to view from our front porch. We have this unusual glow in the West in the winter months when the sun is setting and I could see the hue as I walked toward our front door, which has glass in it. 
As I stepped out onto the porch I could see the two stars, which were a bit more separated at this point, but absolutely clear.
 
What took place next was something I have no explanation
as to where it came from, but the timing of it
was so precise and overwhelming
that I just stood there in awe, and wept.
 
A CHORUS OF VOICES BEGAN SINGING SILENT NIGHT, Holy Night, Son of God, Loves Pure Light, Radiant beams from thy holy face, with the dawn of Redeeming Grace, Jesus Lord at thy birth, Jesus Lord at Thy Birth.
There were no instruments accompanying the voices and it wasn’t coming from a house or car nearby. It was out in the open air and reverberating over our street, softly and simply.
 
Steve was coming back across the street about the time the voices began to sing and we stood there on our lawn looking at the stars growing brighter as the sky grew darker, and marveled at this singing.
It was just one song. Then no more. 
(We wondered if there was an outdoor service somewhere and maybe the sound was travelling, but the words were very clear and understandable.)
 
THE MOMENT WAS AS IF WE WERE SUSPENDED IN TIME, and the Presence of God softly fell on us and around us, and soothed our weary souls. 
We felt His Rest come upon us, and understood the awe that the shepherds must have experienced on that first real nativity night when, “Suddenly there appeared with the angel a great multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests!”  
-Luke 2:13-14
 
ALL I CAN TAKE AWAY FROM THESE EVENTS IS THAT GOD ALMIGHTY
SEES AND KNOWS EVERY MINUTE DETAIL OF OUR EVERY DAY.
He sees our struggles and our sorrows and our love for Him as well!
 
WE ARE IN A TIME LIKE NO OTHER TIME BEFORE ON EARTH, and yet the history of evil men and women attempting to stop the power of the Savior and the King of Heaven moving on earth among His people, has been a non-stop war since time began.
 
We are to be expecting HIS evidence in the earth with great exploits
and moves of His Dynamic Force.
 
He is not unaware of our great need for His Help and Protection from filthy and evil men and women who are given over to demonic possession.
 
We live in day and age where it will take Divine Intervention
to shake the lukewarm believer out of passivity,
and for the world to know that God is Sovereign.
 
BE READY AND EXPECT SIGNS AND WONDERS.
Test them. Be alert.
Be Ready to tell of the Wonders of His Love.
 
LET EVERY HEART PREPARE HIM ROOM!
AND
LET HEAVEN AND NATURE SING OF THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE!

Prophetic Insights For The Year 2020
THE “REIGN” OF GRACE - AND THE “RAIN” OF GRACE 
MERCY FOR THE MERCIFUL
By The Holy Spirit transcribed through Mary Lindow
 
In 2020 the conviction of God will be strong to cleanse the heart of falsity, 
fear of man and the passivity of half repentance for works of the flesh. 
 
We can get all the people that we know around the globe to pray for us and to pray over us, but we cannot force out the devil and the darkness of our own unforgiveness and intentional blame-shifting. We give the enemy consistent access to our churches and our lives as long as we “lord it over others”, hiding our own sin, pretending that God does not see.
In order to have the times of refreshing we are crying out for and are desperate for as believers, we must learn to rule and reign with grace.
Refreshing rains will not fall, and cannot fall in full glory, when we refuse to lay down judgments, manipulations, and self invented spiritual “rules” that do not run parallel with the King of grace who is the ULTIMATE Mercy bringer.
Mercy. It means to perform out of a desire to relieve suffering, and is motivated by compassion. The action of forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one's power to punish or harm. Mercy shown prevents something unpleasant or provides relief from suffering.
In 2020 THE SPIRIT OF GOD DESIRES EVERY BELIEVER 
TO DO THEMSELVES AN ETERNAL FAVOR. 
TELL THE TRUTH.
God will protect you more for doing this than any self-invented cover-up ever could. And, you just might regain relationships with those you have used as stepping-stones to your own deviant self-empowerment.
THE HEAVENLY KING OF GLORY  IS ALWAYS AND FOREVER CREATING NEWNESS OF LIFE
If we are indeed man or a woman of prayer, the test will come of that deep prayer life when your enemies surround you, accuse you, and often attempt to execute and silence you. Some will manifest in this next year as false friends who use and abuse your friendships and contacts in order to gain access to notoriety and power, over all of the things you are supposed be repairing for yourself. They will exhaust and weaken you until you once and for all put upon the altar of surrender, any need for someone else to carry you or promote you.  
A man or a woman of prayer in these days, right now, will learn to sweep out iniquity, falseness, slander, and “hierarchical pecking orders” through goodness and humility.
This is a time to trust, to depend upon, to lean upon, the goodness of the Lord. 
This is a time to trust in His sovereignty more than ever. 
It is His right to define what grace is. It is not man’s right. 
 
Prophetic Exhortation for 2020
“And so says the Lord, the Spirit of Grace,
the Voice of Wisdom, and the only Almighty One. 
As you cry out for times of refreshing, for a change in the hearts of men, for a move of my Spirit across the lands of Earth, my command to you is that you begin to create an atmosphere where I may speak My plans according to My Word and according to My prerogatives.
I will lead you and guide you with enough light each day as you come to that narrow place with me. I will strengthen your weakened spiritual muscles as you dialogue in honesty with me and repent of foolish choices and foolish actions that have caused many to be shattered and shamed because you spoke out of a calling, rather than out of following my voice.
Begin to dig ditches in prayer. 
Become entrenched and immersed in it, never ceasing. Prepare places where my rain may fall and cause a fresh drinking place for those yet to taste of my goodness, as well as for those who are thirsty within my Body.
 
Begin to dig ditches in prayer in dry places, with humility and goodness. 
Lean upon me, trust in me, do not lean upon your own understanding, for you have well seen that having done this in the past you have missed many opportunities to prepare a way of salvation for others.
 
“I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.” (Isaiah 48:10)
So comfort yourself, weary and tried believer with this thought.
Does not the word come like a soft shower, quieting the fury of the flame? 
Is it not a fireproof armor against the heat, which will then have no power? Whatever happens to you in this valley of weeping, know that I have chosen it for you.
 
If you still require an even greater comfort, remember that you have the Son of man with you in the valley. In that secret place with you.  
There He sits by your side, One whom you have not seen but whom you love, and whether you know it or not, this is the true friend who sticks closely by you.
I will never leave one whom I have chosen as my own.
 
Great grace. Great mercy. Great promise. 
All these are yours, extended from my hand, and for you to extend from your hand.
 
NOW IS THE TIME…
…to live out the heart and life of the servant as I lead you with the little light that you have at this time. 
It is all you need as long as it comes from me. 
It is a time to learn to march forward, to dig ditches, to prepare, so that others may also drink freely with no restraints.
When I come and speak to you and move among you, I express everything that is pure and lovely and has a good report, and sin and uncleanliness depart.
Peace also rains when I move with humble power.
Gentleness will be the result of my transforming power. 
Harmlessness will follow, for hearts that are touched by me are never exhibiting any feelings of superiority, self-assertiveness, or showiness.
 
My grace is sufficient for you, and you will find it if you will seek it, and above all if you will express it.
 
“Be strong in the grace that is in me.” (2 Timothy 2:1)
As a reservoir empties itself into pipes, so have I emptied out my grace for my people in this next wave of My Heart. 
Of my fullness you have received grace for Grace. Grace is always available from me without price.
“Keep yourselves from overconfident, arrogant sins.” (Psalm 19:13)
You will certainly stumble if you look away from the One who is able to keep you from falling. Be very cautious about pushing yourself to the forefront of public gatherings and among the more visible.
If you are to be used in higher visibility, let it be Me who promotes you there. Some who drive themselves to the forefront will also have greater scrutiny and unfortunate exposure of hidden agendas and unholy transactions in 2020 and sadly will be brought low again because of their self presumption of importance. 
 
If your love is fervent, your faith constant, and your hope bright, continue nonetheless to be on your guard and cry out, “Keep us from temptation!”
 
The  seasons revolve according to my Divine appointment and man cannot change their schedule. In the spiritual as in the natural realm, man’s power is limited.
I alone can remove the winter of spiritual death from an individual or from a church.
Let me hear you say, “Not my will but as you will oh Lord! 
As you yield to me my people, I will yield in return and bring the sweetness of my Holy Presence into your very homes, your gatherings, whether modest or larger numbers are attending. I look for honest, wisdom filled, and humble people to move among and to move through.  
Let it be, as I desire! As I will!  Allow me to determine  what is the best for you. 
Be content to leave your prayer and your petitions in my hands.
I know when to give, how to give, what to give, and what to withhold.
As you visit me in the secret place of repentance and brokenness, as the path becomes narrower, seeking me earnestly and often times pleading, with humility and resignation, you shall surely prevail.
I am the light on your pathway. And, I AM all you need.”

By Mary Lindow

I invite you to step out from the familiar comfort zone in which you now 
are and take a risk. 
In the body of Christ today there are many different kinds of comfort 
zones. Step out from your comfort zone that leaves you in the place of 
being a “Fallow ground-Christian.” 

 
What I mean by that statement is; 
"Being currently inactive but with the 
possibility of activity or use in the future."
 

THINK HONESTLY 

Are you living as unto yourself, basking in self-approval or self hatred, or 
are you self-consciously living for God’s glory and for the encouragement 
of others? 

Is there joy in your life, and a deeply developing love for God, in the 
“routine” you have carved for yourself? 


 
We all need the discipline of doing something that goes beyond our 
comfort zone. Some of us need to risk being at an event whose only 
purpose is to pray instead of going to get something or hear something 
that will feed our own need for more attention and self-focus. 


 
How many times have your heard the line, “If I won the Publisher’s Clearing 
House Sweepstakes, I would do sooooo much to help others who are poor 
or are going through difficult times?!” Or, maybe you have said, “When I 
close this business deal, get my family inheritance, sell that piece of 
property (uh…brings to mind a certain Ananias and Sapphira from Acts 5) 
then I will obey the prompting of the Lord to “Do something to help.” 


 
A MOVE FROM GOD’S HEART 
If we are truly going have a move of God’s Heart not just His Hand in the form of a “Harvest”, we need to start living the lifestyle that sets a 
precedence for such a move!
Meaning?
Prying our fingers away from what 
we will not share with others until “we” are first satisfied and justified in 
our own “Self preservation.” This does not just apply to material goods. It 
means sharing from the heart humbly, partaking openly with others 
allowing them in, and allowing tears to flow in vulnerability.
These make 
us equals in painful times and equal when we rejoice. 

If folks can’t share during their good times and seasons of abundance, 
they will not fully obey the Lord in caring for their brothers and sisters 
when times are difficult.
 
SHARE WHAT? 
Time, resources, wisdom, counsel, transparent dialog. And, how about a 
focused “Listening ear” instead of a benevolent sort of “tolerant” dead-pan 
stare as someone pours out their deeply bruised soul, looking for a 
handhold or foothold that will assist them in grappling with the 
overwhelming “mountain” of life.
“For the LORD searches every heart 
and understands every motive behind the thoughts. 

If you seek him, you will find him; 
but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever. “
 
1 Chronicles 28:9

Woe to those who think they are fooling themselves when they say that 
they “need to be careful” when they give so people don’t “depend on them 
or expect more from them! 

 Imagine Jesus saying that! He would never withhold from us in order to 
protect “His” investments or hard earned, “worked to the bone” assets! He gave ALL with no guarantee that we would ever appreciate or value it. 


JUST DO IT! 
Invite another family or friend to your home. Don’t wait to be invited. Take 
the initiative. Eat together around the table in your dining room or kitchen. 
Talk together. Pray together. Start a plan of blessing someone in need that 
you know of - together.

DO YOU HEAR VOICES? 
Stop the mindless chattering that is allowed in most of our self-talking 
heads that allows the flesh to push aside the promptings of the Lord! 

Times are getting tough, and those who have been reluctant to share when 
the times were not nearly where they are heading now, will be called up for 
service again, and asked by the Lord to assist those who 
are perhaps weaker, lesser, and much “leaner” in their provisions. 


Start with something small, something useful. Keep it going. And whatever 
you do, keep it between you and the Lord, where your reward is given 
weight in the records in heaven for eternity, not just for a few fleeting 
strokes of the ego here on earth.
 

THE “PRIVATE THINGS” OF PERSONAL RENEWAL… 
…EXPOSED! 
Begin a private life of personal devotion. Rediscover your prayer closet.
 

"Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, 

Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, 
where he prayed."
 Mark 1:35

Gut it out with God. Confess your dissatisfaction with the stale places 
where you have allowed “moss” to grow over in your devotion to the 
discipline of Reading the words of Jesus, Heeding the words of Jesus, and 
then Feeding the Words of Jesus to the hungry, lost, and scared people 
around you in your daily “Missionary calling” as a follower of the Great Reviver of your soul.

"For this is what the high and lofty One says— 
He who lives forever, whose name is holy: 
 
I live in a high and holy place, 
but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, 
 to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.” 

Isaiah 57:15
 
“FLAT LINING” 
Personal revival is usually needed when something in our walk with the 
Savior has gone into a “Flat line” and needs to be “shocked” back into a 
proper heartbeat. 


The closer we become devoted to and more intimate with The King, The 
Comforter, and Savior, the more near He is to us and, will reveal His daily 
“Divine Appointments” for our lives and for His Glory. 

If Jesus did it to survive- so must we! 
 
“But Jesus would often go to some place where he could be alone and pray.” 

 Luke 5:16
 

WE NEED TO BE ALONE! 
Why? In order to not have the distraction of leaning on someone else to “do the praying or talking” for us for one! We gain 
perspective, and refreshing after repenting, and a “reality check” regarding how we are to live the lifestyle of a Christian in an ever-darkening world 
where morals and values are crumbling at an uncontrollable speed.
 

LET US SEE AND HEAR AND ACT! 
As we face the fallow ground left unfruitful.. (through intentional denial that we allowed this) …in our lives and allow the Father to create a clean heart in us, and renew or “Revive” a right spirit (godly attitude) within it, the soil 
can be a host for seed and harvest. 


He gladly does this! WE are His faith seeds in the soil of Earth!
"He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, 

Will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him." 

Psalm 126:6 

 
"He restores my soul. 
 
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake."
Psalm 23:3
 

WISDOM FROM THE SPIRIT 

 
If you want present day revelation, you must have a level of solid Christian 
maturity to not only discern it, but to apply it. There are more and more 
”Muddy” approaches regarding how to be wise or savvy in living your life
being sold in bookstores and every media venue out there!
If you want to 
drink or eat re-cycled food…well, be my guest. BUT! If you truly desire 
depth and a secure anchor for surviving and flourishing in any 
circumstance that you surely will have attempt to sidetrack and undermine 
your Godly Destiny, you and I will have to go to THE SOURCE of Wisdom 
and stay there until we “Get it.”
 
"We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, 

But not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, 
who are coming to nothing."

1 Corinthians 2:6
 
"But solid food is for the mature, 

which by constant use have trained themselves
to distinguish good from evil." 

Hebrews 5:14
 
GIVE JESUS JOY! 

 
 "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."
Romans 12:12
These are the attributes of the faithful and true follower of Christ. And, as Jesus watches over our coming and our going, every moment of every day, 
His joy is made complete when He sees the evidence of a restored life being fruitful and steadfast, no matter what the condition of their 
circumstance or surroundings.


Believer. Let us press on into the walk of maturity in Christ where nothing 
shakes or shatters us anymore, because we live in the light of His Glorious Grace.

"So we praise God for the glorious grace 
he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son." 
Ephesians 1:6
 
~ 
QUOTE FROM OSWALD CHAMBERS ~ 
 
"Whenever we are obstinate and self-willed and set upon our own 
ambitions... 
...We are hurting Jesus.
 
Every time we stand on our rights and 
insist that this is what we intend to do,
...We are persecuting Jesus.
 
Whenever 
we stand on our dignity we systematically vex and grieve His Spirit; and 
when the knowledge comes home that it is Jesus Whom we have been 
persecuting all the time,
...It is the most crushing revelation there could be."

By Mary Lindow
Greetings Brothers and Sisters!
 I’m sure that you’ll remember the story that on Christmas Eve, Ebenezer Scrooge is locked up in the darkness of his dim house. Dickens tells us, “Darkness is cheap, and Scrooge liked it.”
Today, we still know that darkness is cheap, easy to find, and its raw materials of despair and denial are in abundant supply.
Scrooge liked darkness, as we often do, because it hides what we fear, keeps us from facing what is true, and allows us to be blind to truth. But like so many things that come cheaply, our overindulgence in them comes at great cost.
Out of Scrooge’s darkness appears the ghost of Jacob Marley, Scrooge’s former business partner. Marley comes not to haunt Scrooge, but to free him. Scrooge sees that Marley is bound in chains. “Why are you fettered?” Scrooge asks.
“I wear the chain I forged in life,” Marley says. “I made it link by link, and yard by yard,” and he tells Scrooge that the chain that will fetter him in the darkness is even longer, heavier and harder still, if he does not leave the darkness.
WOW! There is a lot of wisdom here!
Though chains placed by others might fetter us, most of our chains are forged by the part of our spiritual self that likes the darkness and shuns the light. Marley was fettered to cashboxes, deeds and ledgers, as was Scrooge.
What would fetter or chain you?
Brothers and Sisters, the life of any leader or person in some form of care, supervision or one with employees or volunteer workers, a person with a bit of over-site over others, needs to be bravely examined, fully exposed to the pure and strong light of God’s eyes and checked often for hardness of heart, the love of acumen, pride in achievements and the over lording of others.
Jesus coming into the world—God in human skin—announced what had been hoped forever, that the captive person would be released from the darkest prisons—physical and spiritual. To our inner spiritual soul, our chains and fetters will be crushed, if we are willing to leave the darkness. Like Scrooge, do we need to be “scared out”? Shaken from slumber?
Scrooge could not receive the simple gift of Christmas, so ghosts rather than grace were sent. But, the result is love.
We need the light of God’s love that by its very nature is a love that comes to give us and those we serve, value and worth, not a love that comes because we are already valuable and worthy.
The entire point of "A Christmas Carol" is that Scrooge is entirely unworthy of God’s mercy, because Scrooge has no mercy! But! Mercy and love come to Scrooge through the judgment of the ghosts, and this "transformation" makes the unworthy Scrooge, worthy again.
The light of God that comes as love, forgiveness and hope is a light that brings judgment. I know that most of us get uncomfortable when talking about God’s judgment, because we are so afraid that we are unworthy of God’s love.
But, look at Scrooge! Without God’s light, without the promise of God’s love, Scrooge is doomed!
It is love and judgment bringing him into the light. Can we now see that judgment by God as a form of God’s love? His way of exposing the darkness of our own souls? Romans 2:16 has proof of this probing of our secret lives!!
“And this is the message I proclaim--that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone's secret life.”
 
Oh friends! Will we ever fully learn that God does not love us because we have value, but instead, HE loves us to give us worth? Life without the pure love of God coursing through our being is a vapor and miserable! 
Let's say to the Spirit of God with all of our hearts, the words Scrooge humbly uttered after he was confronted and faced his darkened heart.
"I will honor Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year."
 
What is Christmas?
When Heaven kissed earth with the greatest act of sacrifice...
... Sending us a Redeemer.
Who is Christ the Lord?
He IS THE Spirit, of CHRISTmas!
  
Let’s Humbly Pray this prayer together,
Father God, be gracious to me I pray, according to your loving- kindness. Father, my sins are heavy against me and my soul is troubled. For the many wrongs I have done against you and for the many evil thoughts and unholy attitudes I have allowed to influence my heart, and rule my life, for far to long.
I have sought to condone my wrongdoings, and ignore the voice of my conscience within. And I ask your forgiveness for my foolish pride, in ignoring the gentle promptings of Your Holy Spirit.
Forgive me I pray, and restore to me the joy of your salvation. For you have promised that all who truly confess their sins will be forgiven and returned back into a right relationship with you - and cleansed from all unrighteousness.
Lord the sacrifice of my heart is brokenness before You, My soul is truly contrite and my desire is to return into a right relationship with you. I know that the consequences of my wrong choices may remain with me for a long time – but I ask that in Your grace and mercy You would forgive my sins and cleanse my soul and restore me into a right relationship with Yourself – and my heart will rejoice in God my Savior, in Whose name I pray,
Amen.
