(These words below reflect various words which have been spoken to me through the Lord, and have been given to several different churches and fellowhips over the years; mainly in the Colorado Springs area. This is in no way an exhaustive list given, because many of these prophecies have become lost, or those individual churches retained the only copy of the word. It seemed important to me to include some of these here, because sometimes even though these words were for specific and individual churches, there are still "universal themes" and applications to us as the body of Christ at large.)
SOLID ROCK CHRISTIAN CHURCH
"IT IS TIME TO GROW UP"
May 5, 02
HEB 5:11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn.  In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God's word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!  Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.  But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
"From morning until evening I am pouring my Spirit out. I pour it out to all who would receive it. What do you do with my Spirit though? Is my Holy Spirit meant just to make you feel good? I tell you that I do want to lift you up. I tell you that I do want to deliver you. I tell you that I do want to heal you from your diseases. I tell you that I do want to forgive you. But more importantly than any of these, I want you to grow up and come into my fullness. Most of the body has been drinking milk at this time. Most of the body has been content with hearing the same teaching time after time. In some places you hear the same sermon preached Sunday after Sunday, but I tell you that I am bringing my body unto maturity. You must partake of the strong meat of my word. You must meditate upon it daily. But after you do all of these things, then you must put them into practice. Strong meat is for those who have trained their faculties. Strong meat is for those who can discern between good and evil. Strong meat will help equip you for the battles that are ahead. Strong meat will help you with perseverance.
"My people, it is time to change your diet. Once you thought as a child and you acted like a child. It is now time to put away childish things. It is no longer time to "play at church." Be my church and grow up."
April 21, 02
2TH 1:11 With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith.
"Now is the time for all of those who have come before Me to fulfill their destinies in Me. Now is the time for the work that I have done in you to be brought out into the open. Now is the time for those who have been in their caves to come out. Now is the time to stand before Me and hear your marching orders. This assembly has heard much, now what are you going to do with what you have heard? "
"A wind is blowing upon you. It is the wind of my purification. Let it blow into every crevice and let it blow into every heart. My wind will blow away the chaff. My wind will expose those things that are hidden in you. Judgment has come and it has begun with the household of God. My judgment will establish my true govenment in the church. My judgment will set things in order. But my judgment will also bring you to the place that I want you to be in Me. "
April 7, 02
 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;  perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Rom. 5
"This is a time when all believers must come to Me in spirit and in truth. Look around and tell Me, what do you see? You see the church, in many places, compromising with the world. This should not be so. I have called you to be salt, and salt has lost its flavor. But many of you have endured in the midst of crisis. You have stood your ground and have not compromised your faith in Me. I have tested many of you in the fiery furnace. Some of you have passed the test, but others need to be tested further. After the ordeal of the furnace comes the fruit. Will the fruit last or will it fail Me, says the Lord? I have called you to bear much fruit. When you then have the fruit and you have exercised your gifts in Me, then you will be a "balanced creation." For there is much "giftedness" in the body of Christ, but with your "giftedness" how can your character be proved to be true? I will bring to completion those things that I am doing in your midst, only remain in Me so that your character will be molded into my image. "

EPH 4:14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming.  Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.  From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
"Is there a destiny in Me that you all would pursue? Truly, I would but show you forth your destinies in Me if you would but ask of Me. Seek Me above the noise and clamor of this hour. I AM a rewarder of those who would truly seek Me. You have freedom of worship here to worship Me in Spirit and in truth. I will reveal to you about your placements in the body. Each of you has a place and a function to perform here. It is in giving your whole self unto Me. If it is in teaching, teach without reservation using my whole word as a balancing beam of my word. If it is in counsel, then use my wisdom and not your own. If it is in encouragement, then learn how to lift up the broken-hearted; learn how to offer hope to a world that is without hope. If it is with music, then let that music flow forth from your spirit. If it is as a pastor, then nurture, then feed, then take on my nature as a servant, clothing yourself with humility as a shepherd. If it is with the "gift of prophecy," then use your gift to build-up the body of Christ."
"Know that I Am in the process of bringing my body unto maturity. There are many strange and unusual doctrines in the church at this time. Know how to properly handle the word of God. Be effective with it in season and out of season. If you are called as an evangelist, then have a heart for the lost. If I have given you my discernment, then learn how to distinguish between good and evil. Understand that it is not the gift of criticism, but it is in being able to discern good and evil spirits as well. Know how to properly use the gifts that I've given unto you. How can you do this unless you exercise them? A muscle grows through repeated use. You need not be perfect in them. For perfection only comes when maturity has fully arrived. You will never be totally mature until you reach full manhood. I have set in my body the five-fold ministry to bring it unto maturity. It is five-fold. It is not one-fold or two-fold. These ministries are but a reflection of my person hood upon this earth. There is but one true shepherd and that is my Son. Let Him lead you beside the still waters. Let Him carry you when the storms of life are raging. Let Him care for you as only a mother could."
"I have guidelines and parameters for My church. You will find them outlined in my word. Learn how to reflect your part of the body back unto Me. Then you will have manifested your part. Then my church will grow and will be built-up."

 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.  God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth." John 4
"This church has to do with evangelizing the lost. You have reached out to the whole world. My gospel has been taken unto the ends of the earth. But now, I would like you to do some other things as well. Just as you have reached out to those who are in need of salvation, I AM asking you to "build up those" who are here as well. How can you reach out to a lost and dying world if you are still sick? You have begun to hear my voice. You have learned to "sense" the presence of my spirit, but you need to make room for Me in your worship. I will speak if you make room for Me. As you learn to do this, more and more, I will bring you unto fullness and unto maturity in Me. "

23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth." John 4
"The Lord would say that: Even though you are small you are mighty unto Me." "You may not have all of the programs that a lot of other churches have, but you have followed after Me. But I would have you to be hot and not to be lukewarm. II would have the fervency of your worship. I would have you to worship Me in Spirit and in Truth without reservation. Then your church will be great in my eyes no matter what the size."
Abundant Life Assembly(Monument)
Early during worship this morning, the Lord spoke to me saying:
"Are they really thinking about the songs that they sing to Me? If you are, then it brings me great joy."
I then saw the Lord looking down from below watching our worship of Him. He showed me a guitar which had strings, and then the strings were "plucked," or were broken. )
He said that if our worship of Him does not come from a clean or ready heart, our songs are like "plucked strings," and that are hearts are also like "plucked strings." If our worhip does come from a clean and ready heart, then these strings are not "plucked," but they sound like a symphony to HIm."

You are a church which has honored Me over the time you have been here. You have fought the good fight, but many of you have not loved Me as I would have you too. Are you willing to lay your lives down for Me? Are you willing to put Me first above all things? It is a life of sacrifice and abandonment. It means not merely picking up your cross on Sunday, but on every day. If you do these things then I will come in and sup with you.
You will mount up with wings as of eagles and you will run and not be weary; you will walk and not faint. But you also must worship Me in Spirit and in Truth, and then these things will happen."

"I am bringing this body unto a place of completion in Me. No longer following the whims of this world. Seeds which have been planted will grow into a rich garden. This is a training ground for your souls. This is a place where the yoke of bondage will be broken. This is a place where hands will be joined together with each other in one accord. As my Spirit is poured forth, come to those waters and drink of it. May the peace which is established in your hearts be shed abroad. I will heal your diseases. I will deliver you from your fears. My kingdom will be established here and will grow into a rich temple. "
"My house will be called a house of prayer. My house and my body is not just a place though. You are my body when you are joined together in Me. As every part does its work; every supporting joint; every member. Come to those waters. Feed beside those still waters. Walk with Me, and I will be there with you. You are my body and this is my family, from the smallest child unto the eldest one. So many are seeking the things that are found outside. In Me can be found everything that is needed."
(The Lord showed me a large brass candleholder, and it was being set into place, as if not to be moved, and He was the one who had placed it there.)
"The candlestick of this house will grow and flourish. I ask that you keep the light lit. Keep the light lit with brotherly love. Keep the light lit with service unto Me. And keep the light lit with prayer and true worship."

Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Rom. 12:13
Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. I Peter 4:9
We ought therefore to show hospitality to such men so that we may work together for the truth. 3 John 1:8
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
"You who have opened your homes to minister before Me: "Hear Me, for you have my heart."
"Be there as someone who shares your home and who shares your heart. As you come together, share your lives before Me. Your homes can be an instrument for Me. As you meet together, allow Me to be the one who ministers. Allow Me to be the one who teaches, allow Me to be the one who heals, allow Me to be the one who speaks forth my word. With these things in mind then, be yielded to Me and to my Spirit. Recognize the gifts in each other. Then you will see my hand at work there in your midst. Be an example to those who come. Be an example of those who are willing to lay their lives down for one another. Then my fruits will be manifested; then you will come together as one man. In your homes I've asked you to carry the burdens of others. It is here that you can be real with yourselves, for all pretension is dispelled. Every one of your homes has a different flavor to it. Just as there is the smell of freshly baked bread, so the aroma is when you offer yourselves."
Let your homes glorify Me, thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."
Yours in Him,

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Eph. 6:12
"There is a training which is necessary in order to come to my "completeness." In a military, men are trained for combat. They are trained how to shoot and how to endure, and they are shown how to work as a team. Their commander-in-chief helps them; and helps them understand what their orders may be. The same is true for those who are in my army, for this is a spiritual battle which you are waging. The enemy seeks to devour many of you. He seeks to destroy the things you've done for Me. But I say, that he will not prevail. From the beginning he was a liar. I have said that those who know the truth will be set free by it. I have come to destroy the works of the enemy. I say, this day, let Me penetrate your hearts. Every foul thing must be made rid of. From the caverns of your hearts and souls, those things which have laid there, will be brought out.
(The Lord showed me the hands of someone who was using an instrument, like a surgeon would use. It was something like unto a lance, and these hands were using this to extract and to cut into something. There was light within where this was happening, and a type of magnifying glass was being used to see what needed to be done.)
"I say that it is time for the root of many of these things to come out. Many of you have just been dealing with things on the surface; and a root, a seed of that problem still exists. But I desire to make you whole and complete. For I the Lord, have the hands of a skilled physician. I say, let Me extract those things from you. It is more painful for those things to remain in you. And then, when they are removed, you will be free. Bring all these things to Me, and I will make you whole. "

"For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. There remains then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience." Heb. 4:8-11
"Remember my charge to Israel that they had never entered my rest? With the "busy-ness" that everyone does for Me; they also need to give-up their burdens unto Me. It is not a matter of "doing" things, but of what I have "done" for you. Those who follow Me will do "good works, but these things will not save you. Press-on to the high calling I have called you to. In the midst of your schedules you need to find time for Me. What do you give your time to? As the days draw nigh to my return, your time with Me will be most important. As you continue to spend time with Me then I will "light" the road before you. Then you will be a fragrant offering unto Me."

"Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God, instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. And God permitting, we will do so." Heb. 6:1-3
"As this season approaches, this time of the year, seek Me more than you would fine gold. For I AM to be sought more than the riches of this world. I long to fill those places of your hearts. I long to move and to breath in this body. I long to call this body back unto myself. I long to impart my spiritual gifts one to another. Show Me a church which would speak forth my word, and I will show you one which is alive. In these last days, I long to bring my body unto maturity in Me. No longer chasing after every wind of doctrine. No longer being caught-up in this, or in that, but being caught-up into Me. I have said in my word that if it were possible, that we would go unto maturity...No longer laying a foundation for repentance about dead works, no longer having disputes about baptisms, or other arguments about elementary doctrines. For too long my bride has appeared as a baby; for too long she has been caught-up in childish things. At a certain stage of development, milk is a proper food; then it becomes necessary to eat meat. For meat is for the mature, and is needful for growth. Then every ligament and part of my body will be strong in Me. Then the muscles will be stretched and the bones will be strengthened. And then the fragrance of my love which you have for one another, will be poured out like an ointment. I say, "Let us go onto maturity, no longer living in the past. Then you will grow up unto the measure of the stature of Me. And then my fullness will fill this body unto my proportion."

"I have established this place as a haven, as a place to come and find shelter in. From times past, I have moved and breathed upon this body, but lately, I have seen many of you fallen back. I have seen many of you shrink back because of fear. You do this because you think that you aren't good enough. None of you are good enough; it is only because of my Son that you have been given life. The life I now give will be a fountain bubbling-up unto eternal life. This fountain will flow in the midst of this body, and will bring you unto completion. My Spirit is a driving force, and it is a creative thing. With it, you can move mountains, and cause your hearts to rise above your circumstances. Without my Spirit working in your lives, you are then as a barren land. For here, there are no fruits to be seen. Come to Me, out of those "living waters;" then your spirits of fear will be replaced with a Spirit of love, power, and a sound mind."

"It is time....it is the season for searching your hearts. It is true that there are always seasons like this. But I would say, that this season is in preparation for what lies ahead. This body of believers has truly sent out workers into the harvest fields. Your name signifies that. But what is there to harvest here at home? Behold the fields are ripe in your own families, and homes, and communities. For the fields are indeed ripe for harvest, even here. Search your hearts and see what there is that you could be doing. Stand upon the walls of this city and look out, and tell Me what you see. Some say that it is time to rest, but I say that it is time to prepare for war. There are battles which are fought in the heavenlies, and I also ask that you join in on that battle. It is not time for division, but it is time for unity. "

"This is a place where the ministry of my Holy Spirit is active. You seek Me with your whole heart, and you ride on my Spirit like the wings of the wind. You have not followed cleverly-devised myths. For true religion is taking care of the fatherless and looking after widows. But I would say, that in the midst of the music, and in the midst of the service, you need times of silence. For you need to hear my voice. Come to those living waters, come to those rivers which flow right from my throne. The battle is raging, and you need to be ready. The horseman have gone out---the first one is bent on conquest, but I AM riding on that white horse, and I AM coming back for my bride, and you will ride with me to victory. And victory is what I want for my bride. I want you to be victorious in every area of your lives. Seek Me with your whole heart, and follow Me. Spend time alone with Me in prayer. Silence your souls before Me; for when you do, I will guide and lead you."

"Zion is my place, my place of dwelling. In ages past, I dwelt among my people, and now in these days, I dwell with them in their spirits. Lift up ye gates and ye heavenly doors, that the King of Glory would come in. Who is this King of Glory? It is the Lord of Hosts, strong and mighty. You who come before meworship me, and I will give you the hidden manna; I will give you my white stone. Offer sacrifices to Me with a willing heart, for this is your spiritual worship.
On a field, there are goats and there are sheep. My sheep will graze in my meadows, and beside still waters. But the goats do not eat from my pastures. For they would satisfy their appetites with other things. And I have said that at the end I would separate the two. My sheep, eat at my table and partake of my food. Stay within the boundaries of my pasture. The thief would come to kill and destroy. But he cannot harm you, for my staff is here, and I AM your shepherd.
Come here, and graze here with Me, for my food will sustain you. Eat and be satisfied, and drink of my waters. Do not wander into other territory, for the food will not be wholesome. Remember that I spoke about the bread of life to you. Partake of that bread, and let it fill you. Then you will be filled and satisfied, and nothing in my pasture will harm you. Your tent will be safe, and the arrow which flyeth at noon, will not harm you. Zion is my everlasting place, and from my holy hill do I see all that happens. Mercy will flow from my throne, and judgment will be executed from on high."
"He has set his foundation on the holy mountain; the Lord loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob." Ps. 87:1
"Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Ps. 100:3
"All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and goats on his left. Matt. 25:32-33
First Foursquare Church
"You are a group of people who I've called to represent me here. I have set you here on this corner as a sign to those around you. To be a Four-Square Church, the most important thing is the foundation upon which my word rests. You are a body who is concerned about the relationships within, and because of this, new ministries are opening-up. But also keep this in balance with those who are outside this body--reach out to the hurting and the lost, and remember your youth. Your young and your old are ones you need to concentrate on. For the young are the future of this country, and the old have the wisdom that can teach you how to live in simplicity. For the days are evil, and I would have you to number them. This is my word unto you this day."

Pirmasens New Life Chruch Of God
"You who are gathered here, I have brought you to this place. I have gathered you from many different backgrounds. You are not small in my eyes. Say unto the mountains, "Be ye removed into the sea." For your faith even though it is small, will grow and will not be measured. For would a man measure the divine by human standards? So, do not let your faith be a thing that you speak of, but rather let it spring forth from hearts that are pure in their devotion. For you are here for a reason, and I have placed you here on this corner to be a witness unto many. There are those who would try and rise-up against you, but fear not, for you are not to be imprisoned by them. For this was once another church body, and it has now been carried unto you. So, carry the torch and hold it high. Let the light that comes forth from your candles radiate into the darkness. Come into my sancturay, and let that presence guide you in all of your affairs. Thus would say the only true and living God."
"You who have been gathered here-- As I've told you before, I've made you a light in the midst of darkness, and to carry that light, you must not hid it under a bushel basket, but it must be lifted out of the midst of this church. And it is no small thing that you are here, for you are great even though you may be small in numbers. For numbers are not important to me, but the quality of the people who serve me. For if I had not left a remnant, then no one would be left to show the way. This is my word unto you this day."

"I called Israel to be a vine for me. I hollowed out a garden and a place for them, but their branches grew dry and withered. I built a watchtower in the midst of it, to watch over my fertile land. I looked for grapes, but it only yielded bad fruit. And now, there is another vineyard. Your vines have moved to this new place. There are many young plantings of mine here; and there are old ones who have grown tall in me. Be careful not to harm each other--some leaves need tender care. I want you to yield the choicest grapes."
" Let me sing for my beloved a love song concerning his vineyard: My beloved had a vineyard on a very fertile hill. He digged it and cleared it of stones, and planted it with choice vines; he built a watchtower in the midst of it, and hewed out a wine vat in it; and he looked for it to yield grapes, but it yielded wild grapes."

"Even as a plant would grow-up and mature, so this body will grow-up and mature in Me. For as a tree is planted, and it sets itself in a place of nourishment and feeding beside the still waters, so will you all be nourished and fed by Me. For I have set you apart for a place of nourishing and feeding. This place will provide all the nourishment for your souls. Come unto Me and feed, and I will extend my hand to give the growth. For I help all of my plantings to be made into what I desire. There are many things in store for this place of praise and worship. It is true that I AM raising you all up in Me. It is true that this would not be just a place unto yourselves. I AM also having you to reach out unto others to bring them in. It is also true that some of you will be going into other lands. For this place is not only to be looking inward, but outward. For it is my building and you all are a part of it. As this thing moves forward, know that I AM in control of it all. Some of you will stay, as others are sent out. For someone needs to stay at home to watch over it. Let Me hold the reins of all of this. I will drive this carriage and all of its horses."
"It is as a boat that you are moving upon the waters. In the coming months, this body will be going through many things. Just as Noah's ark was upon the waters, so House of New Life is upon the waters. She will move forward into new areas of ministry. I will grant you all the wisdom and sight as to the way that you should go. There are times in the lives of my people that I tell them where they should be going--This is a time such as that. For with the Spring comes new things, and even so, there will be "new things" bud in your lives. For as you have come together to form and unite my plan, I will take some of you unto other areas. The ministry of my Son brings "many things" of what He wants, and there are diversities of ministries as there are gifts.
So, as you move forward in the ship, let Me move it into the waters of my choice. In a matter of a short time, I will begin to show unto some of you, some plans that I have for you. For this a place where you can all move in and out of.
On the horizon, are other churches for you to minister at. But just know that you are all a team, and even though you may appear to move in many different directions, you are still a body that is devoted to Me, and each other. Let my ship move into uncharted waters, and let the wind of my Holy Spirit take it."
"Am I not a God who understands everything? House of New Life is as a ship. I have said unto you before, that it is a place where all of you can come in and out of. Do not try to repair the rigging. May of you have tried to make things happen, but I AM the master builder. As you look at the walls and see what has been started here, be careful how each of you would build. For with costly gems and straw, a man and a woman can add to a structure. But let it be done a piece at a time. Form everyting out of the vision I have placd in your own hearts. For the time is coming when I shall return. Will I find you building my house? Will I find you building with costly gems, or things that the fire would burn-up? Each of you has their own separate place and ministry. Some of them are rocks and stones that are taken out, only to bring back with them, a stronger foundation. Let it all be a labor of love that you build these things in your own lives and together as one man."
Creative Faith Ministries
"Would you say that you have a creative faith? I AM the God of creation, and I have formed and made man and woman, each in their own ways. I brought forth the mountains, and I formed the great valts of the oceans. So, if you would have a creative faith, then let it extend itself out unto the wayward and the lonely. For that is where creative faith will find itself. For I was lonely, and you came unto Me, and I was wayward, and you brought Me back. For everyone you do this unto, you do it unto Me. For this is a world I have come into, to bring life and liberty t oall. Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."
Creative Faith Ministries
"As I have brought you all together here, I move and breath upon this assembly. Do not lie prostrate upon the ground, but do the work that I've called you to do. And what is that work, you might ask? It is not just exercising your spiritual gifts, but it is in producing character. Some of you are new to my kingdom; stay here so that you might learn of Me. To others who have known Me for some time, I would say, to be one with your wives, for in being one with your mates, then you better understand my plans for you. I AM bringing you all into a greater relationship with Me. For the days are hastening forward to my soon return. Will I find you ready for Me? He who overcomes I will make as a pillar in my house. So prepare yourselves for the days that lie ahead. This is my word unto you this day.

"You have sought my face....you turned over the ground to yield my fruit. You have found that I give unto men their place in my kingdom. You have seen that I have a vision for you, and have found it to be mine. For my vision is one that would find you as one man, working together. For how can it be done without unity? Each body must function as one. So, let it not be said of you that you would seek your own plan. Let Me guide you into those plans that I have for you. For there is a work that you are all a part of. My kingdom is made-up of many churches, and you are one part of that. The vision has to be far-reaching, and yet, attainable. And so, let it shine brightly, and let it be close at hand. The vision will set you free and give you hope. "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."
"I AM at work in this body...I have brought you all together for an important thing. This purpose is in bringing you all out of darkness and into my marvelous light. Some of you have let that light grow dim, and some of you, that light has grown to be strong. Let Me guide you unto these things that I have in store for you all. You might ask Me what these things are. As some of you have seen things change over the years; you have seen a son come and help pastor this church. Watch and wait, and see that I have everything in control. For I AM a God who cares for all of these things. Many things are going to be new. It has been said that Lighthouse is not living in the past, and it is moving forward. So grasp my hand, and move with Me. See, I AM doing a new thing. Do you not behold it? Be on your guard against fear. Be of one mind and one body. Do everything in a spirit of unity. Behold, now you see through a mirror dimly, but then, face to face. Now you may understand some of this, in time I will show you all more. Let hospitality reign--entertain others as you would your own household. Bless one another with brotherly affection. Be in a spirit of readiness for my soon arrival. For those clouds will unfold my soon return. Look up, for your redemption draweth nigh. This is a time and a season to made perfected. Wash your robes with my blood, and purify your hearts before Me. This is my word spoken and given this day."
"You people, hear Me...the cankerworm has come out of his shell. He has tried to devour, but I AM in control of it all. Everything that comes to you, can only come to you with my watch and care. For there are many things that have come into the lives of all of you. Have I not allowed them to happen? Even as a ship would be upon the sea, the storms that blow, and the winds that attack its sails; I take that ship and I bring it unto its safe harbor. So all of you, are brought through the trials of this life. No matter how many, nor how strong, I can bring you through. For the worm cannot eat my precious children, and even though it would dnaw at the door, it cannot harm the house."
"As this church has gathered together at this time, I AM unfolding my plan to show forth my glory. This has been a day of celebrating what happened on the day of Pentecost. There is no one I cannot pour forth my Spirit upon. My church must be made ready for the days that lie ahead. For where the eagles are gathered together there will be found the carcass. You are as those eagles when you come together. So get your wings ready to fly above the mountains. So shall all my children be. To be in my Spirit is to be in the sky up there where only my Son can show you the things that are soon to come. For in the coming months and years, I will be moving in new ways. My body should equip herself with my armor, for the war is raging. This is my body to be made ready for that day, that is soon to come upon the face of this earth."

"The fields are ripe unto Me, would say the Lord. I AM blowing forth my horn, and I AM calling unto all, to come unto Me, to prepare yourselves for the things that lie ahead. The fields are ready to be taken, they are to be harvested. For the time is coming for all my saints to be gathered together unto Me; to stand willing and ready. To stand tall, for the battle is raging, it has been raging for a long time. But my hand is there to strengthen and to guide. For without a vision the people perish. And the vision I have for you all is to stand ready. For you are to dress yourselves in the garments of mine. And you are to wage war against the strongholds, against the principalities, against the powers of this present age. For the emblem of my kingdom is my Son and his saints offering forth their praises unto Me, and raising their banners high.
For China will open-up and all of its customs and ways will be made known unto those who are going there. For the doors will not be barred anymore. Brad and his family will be made ready for that approaching day. For my servants are to go where I've called them to go. And I will take care of the leadership. Be of good cheer, for I have seen the ending. My people must be ready for the things that lie ahead. Other countries and lands will have some of you sent. For I have made known my perfect will and plan unto those who would seek Me. So stand ready, for the day is quickly approaching. Go into all lands that I haave called you to. Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."
"Govern my church as officials who know what needs to be done. Let your hands serve Me and willingly take on the yoke of that servanthood. Let not the things that you are accustomed to become routine. These are things that must be taken up daily. You are all examples of who I AM to this flock of believers. Be willing to take up your cross daily, for when you do this, then you are truly an elder. Many things are going to be changing here. The word that Brad has been giving is already taking on a new dimension. The things that are coming and the men who will be ordained will testify to what I AM doing here. These men are my chosen ones here. My five-fold ministry will take over. Things will take on a new order, and my hand will take charge. So look to Me about these things. Do not be afraid to venture out in new forms of ministry. As the new covenant replaced the old one, so I AM building a new house here at Holland Park. It has all of the foundation of the old one, but there are new timbers and new stones that I AM raising-up to fill those gaps and meet those needs of my people. Let Me raise-up this house. Let Me establish it the way I want to. Then you will truly know that I AM at work here, and that I will establish this house to be like the house that my servant David wanted to build. It will be built upon a new covenant, with hands that work together serving Me whole-heartedly. That is the way my church is to be built. Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."
"This ministry will help train and build-up others in order that they might achieve their potencial. For the equipping of the saints and the work of the ministry. Let it all be taught with my word as the measuring rod. Let those who are in authority teach and train the younger ones. For my body, the church, needs this, in order for all to come to the measure of the stature of the fullness of my image. This is to be a training ground for the work of the ministry. As a man would exercise to become fit, so my word brings fitness. As bodily training is of value, so is the word that brings health and life."
