So you’ve made your choice and said YES to God, but your life still looks the same as always. What happened? Well, you said YES but did you also say AMEN?

Martha:
So, Joan, share with your notes. She, she got really brilliant about it.

Joan:
Well, I have been so impacted by Julia’s simple statement that I, it has just opened my life to me. And I felt like the Lord posed to, the question to me, the life has, God has given me, that He has given me, do I say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to Him? Because it really comes down, it is boiled down to the ‘yes’ and ‘no.’ It’s not… We want to make it specific and say, “Well, I don’t like this or that,” but it’s really comes down Him and me. Do I say ‘yes’ to You?

And I saw that the ‘yes’ is a very open ‘yes’; it’s clear, it’s seen, it can be seen in anybody’s life when they make it. And I also saw that the ‘no’, which is a refusal, we don’t like that word but it’s truly a refusal of Him, the life He’s given in all of its facets, every, from the start to the finish.

It’s a refusal but it’s often hidden because we hide it from ourselves. We like to think I’ve made a ‘yes’ but in reality, we’ve said ‘no’. And I feel like I’ve asked the Lord to expose every place of I have a no in me because, you know, I’ll hide it from myself. I’m great at that, you know. I’m one of the queens of denial on such things. But it’s just, I just saw, it’s just such a, a simple thing. It’s like in Deuteronomy where He says, “Choose life that you may live.” The choice was not complicated. It was simple. Not easy.

And I’ve also seen… Martha and I talked about choice and that the Lord showed me something about choice, in that there must be a commitment to the choice. You, you can’t just choose. Oh, I did that for a lot of years and that was part of my hiding in the ‘no’. “Well, I’ve made the choice but nothing’s happening.” Well, I didn’t really make the choice, because I saw that even in the kingdom we receive the kingdom by faith but at the same time the Lord says, “Seek first the kingdom and His righteousness.”

So there is a choosing and then our part is the seeking. And what does that mean? Well, that means how, how does that play out in my life? What is the reality of that? And I saw that the present is not static, that now is ever moving. We are in an ever-moving moment of choice. And so my seeking is my commitment to the choice. And I, and I puzzled over “Seek His righteousness,” and this may be totally off, but I was given, His righteousness was imputed to me, but the actual process of the choice, I seek His righteousness and my ‘yes’; my ‘no’ to myself and my ‘yes’ to Him produces an ever-increasing reality of righteousness.

John:
So I was, I was speaking to a friend of mine this week about choice and the ‘yes’ and everything like that. And we had an interesting discussion about ‘want.’ And basically, I said to him, “Hey, you know, you can, you can ‘want’
something all day long and still not achieve anything.” And I think that that’s a trap that people get in, and I’m actually writing a post about it. People get in that trap that, “Well, I want to do this. I want to do this.” Well, you can’t just want it. That’s a, that’s passive. You know, you, you… It’s… The, the ‘want’ is the, the, the step prior to the choice.

And so, I’m looking forward to writing this one and getting this out and, and I’m gonna include some of the stuff that you’ve said because it just works absolutely perfectly. And, and I’m, I’m looking forward to, you know, because I, I think that that’s a, that’s a satanic pitfall that we all fall into, because I feel like I’ve effected change by wanting but until I make the choice I haven’t.

Joan:
Well, and I see that as what you’re talking about is acting on the choice. We can want something but if we don’t act on that and that’s what you’re talking about. And the acting on my choice is the seeking. I say, “I want You, Lord.” Well, do I seek You? Or do I just go on my merry way expecting You to, to do it all. And “I’m okay, God. You’re not doing Your part.” No! I have refused to do my part, which is, you know, seeking which He even puts the desire into seek. He, He even moves the choice if I’ll have a, I’ll say, ever moving ‘yes’, an ever expanding ‘yes’.

Martha:
The ‘want’ that I’ve heard so many people say, “Well, I want to follow Him. I want to love Him.” And I say, “Well, you never will because it’s not a want. Of course, you want. Of course, you desire! But do you choose? Do you say ‘yes’? Do you say, ‘I am Yours, Lord’?” But that ‘want’ is saying, “God’s just isn’t moving. I want it but He isn’t doing His part.” Oh, He has done His part on the cross and He does His part every day by the Holy Spirit.

So the word ‘want’ is, is a ‘no’, really. “It’s, it’s God’s problem and He’s not moving!” And you can buy the lie if you want to.

Joan:
There it is, Martha. You said it! There’s the hidden ‘no’.

John:
It’s His life that we rely upon but my choice is involved in it. Otherwise I’m just a robot. And He wants, He gave me free will to, to live out my life and, but I have to, I have to make the direction and the choice for Him to engage His life in my life. I have to make the choice. That’s, that’s the, that’s the weird thing about the exchanged life because you would think, “Oh well, you know, boom, here comes Jesus’ life out of me.” No, you, you have to choose it. It’s a, it’s a choice.

Martha:
And the choice is me or Him.

John:
Exactly. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Martha:
And in Him I have all, everything for me. It’s foolish.

John:
Right.

Martha:
Because if you say ‘yes’ then God’s on the job and He will bring you to the end and it will be finished – your life, your destiny. He will finish it. You don’t have to do that complicated thing. He will do it for you but He requires of you and me a choice. And the choice as Joan is telling us is on-going.

John:
It is.

Martha:
Always it’s a challenge.

John:
Um hmm.

Joan:
And this is the part of union. We… The Lord didn’t say… He says, “You belong to me” but we belong to Him in union. He wants our participation. He does not absorb us, consume us. He’s looking for an active participation of our ‘yes’ to His life as our life. But that requires us as well as Him.

So to say, “I want” really is to say, “You do all the work. I may want this but I’m not doing anything about it because I’m not in union. I just dump it all on You. I have no place of responsibility in this relationship.” Which every relationship requires a place of responsibility and commitment or there is no relationship.

Martha:
One thing I’ve discovered in studying the scriptures, looking at all different aspects of the Bride, and I realize that what God wants for His Son is a partner, not a slave. He wants a partner. And one of the phrases He gave me was, “A partner who would sing His glories forever;” a partner who understands Him and knows Him.

That, the danger in this generation is that in the name of Jesus, we deny Jesus a place in the church. You can see it, if you watch for it. You can see it in a lot of the speakers and a lot of things that are written. That the Bride is to be absolutely in partnership with the Lord; His goals are her goals, His desires are her desires. And the church is going to be made up, the church is those who do the will of God. Jesus said, “Who is My father, mother, sister? Who’s My family? Those who do the will of God.”

So that’s… Occasionally I’ll, I’ll come across someone or some situation where that’s so obvious that Jesus has been removed. And there may be zeal, there may be, there may even be miracles. There’s a lot now of, of the false that is going on, false miracles and without Jesus being either the source or the object or the center. That’s my cry.

John:
This all reminds me of 2 Corinthians 1:20 in the Amplified. It’s, it’s_____?
“For as many as are the promises of God, they all find their Yes [answer] in Him [Christ]. For this reason we also utter the Amen (so be it) to God through Him [in His Person and by His agency] to the glory of God.” And that’s, there’s your ‘yes’. There’s your, there’s your ‘yes’ and amen. It, it is through His life but we’re not free of the responsibility to join in that. I mean what bride, you know, isn’t in union, isn’t connected, isn’t making that choice, isn’t wanting to be? That’s, that’s, that’s slavery, that’s bondage, that’s not true union and true beloved bridal union.

Martha:
Well said, well said.

I love that scripture. Thank you for remembering it. I didn’t and I like, I love that it says, “Amen.” We have to say, ‘amen’ to the ‘yes.’ And that, that’s deeper than just saying ‘yes’. It’s saying, “So be it.” That’s what ‘amen’ means. So be it, so be all of it! That’s what Mary said when the angel gave her the news of her destiny. “Let it be unto me according to Thy word.” She said not just a ‘yes’ but let it all be. “All that You planned let it be, let it become.”

John:
I love this. I just looked at it in the Passion (2 Corinthians 1:20 TPT).

For all of God’s promises find their ‘yes’ of fulfillment in him. And as His ‘yes’ and our ‘amen’ ascend to God, we bring Him glory!”

I love that! His ‘yes’ and my ‘amen’. That’s amazing.

Special Guest: Joan Wentzel

This the continuation of a series of podcasts started in Episode #697
The kingdom is a kingdom of government and it’s difficult for us when we’re been so free, to realize that we are living under a different government.

John:
We were on the names the other day and we were about how the Lord wanted to meet the needs and who He was and you came to know who He was by His name. Well, you know, I’m, I’m just sitting here listening to you and, and I was thinking He’s the God who overcomes coronavirus. He’s, He’s the God. He, He wants to introduce Himself as that God in this specific time. “I’m the God over corona.” And so, it’s all our troubles but today specifically He wants to live through this.

And the preaching that we were hearing yesterday, https://americasvoice.news, they were basically saying, it kind of shocked me, I was like, “Wow”, I didn’t think about that, that He’s calling us all to go back to the basics of the family and He’s, He’s putting us in time-out. And, and, and they didn’t say that but that’s, that’s exactly what it is. He’s putting us in time-out and He’s, He’s requiring us to stay and interact with our family; talk to our family.

And, you know, we’re, we’re such a dispersed people and such a dispersed family, you know. We’re always going, going, going, moving, moving, moving and we have, you know, five seconds we look up and it’s someone between text and work and you know, and that’s it. Right now, you know, things are being shut down all over the place so that we have to face each other.

Joan:
And I see in what John’s saying is He’s taking us back to commitment. Our God is a God of covenant. Covenant is commitment. And marriage is a commitment. The family is a commitment. And He is taking us back and saying, “I will bring you to this commitment.” See that, His faithfulness I saw with Israel He was willing to bring them to every place He wanted them to go to, to come to the heart He wanted from them. He is a God of commitment and covenant and so we are to be a covenant people but He will make us the covenant people and we don’t really understand what that will take because, you know…I, I speak, for, personally. I lots of times think I’m somebody I’m not and He had to tell Israel, you know,  “Not because you’re special, not because you’re righteous, not because you’re strong. You’re stubborn and hard. But I’m God and I’m the God of commitment.” So He overrides, His covenant overrides my humanity in the most amazingly, beautiful way.

Martha:
Well, it’s been interesting to see because we, we watched the President announce some number of things and mandate to go take yourself into quarantine.

So, we had guest coming this particular week and this was before the, the self-quarantine was really going on. And the Lord woke me up early and said, “Cancel their trip!” And it was so painful to do because I knew…He didn’t tell me the reason. Only later did I realize that that mandate was going to come down and He, He knew that so He said, “Cancel their trip.”

Well, then another friend was going to have all her family and all the grandchildren up here and I called her and I said, “We are going to be under the authority of our President and we are going to obey.” And she said, “Martha, they aren’t coming.”

And so then I wanted to give somebody a birthday party and so we got all the, the plans together and, and made Jennifer go do some grocery shopping and because I wanted her to have birthday party. And then suddenly I went, “Oh, no! Whoops!” The rebellious are being exposed.

So we canceled the party. And just, just to be under authority, be under the…The kingdom is a kingdom of government and, and it’s difficult for us when we are, when we’re been so free, to realize that we are living under a different government. The very government has changed over this nation. He’s…Things are being done that have never been done in our history. And so we have to be, all of us have to be alert to the, the governing authorities. So I have laughed at myself over that repentantly.

So the…I have a little booklet that I really love and want to be in print someday called Kingdom Safety. And the jest of it is if you are obedient, you’re in the kingdom. If you’re looking for His will and not your way, you’re in the kingdom. If you live for His will and not your indulgences, you’re in the kingdom. So when you’re in the kingdom…

 “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.”

And in, in the process of that in the context it speaks of food and clothing – don’t worry about those things. Well, life, you know, is much bigger than food and clothing, but I believe that whatever things you need at any time you need it if you’re under the authority of Christ, the Lordship of Christ and the Fatherhood of God, you, you will have things you didn’t know you needed. And that’s not the prosperity gospel. You will have what you need to live and to minister. That’s what you’ll have. And you’ll have that in abundance in His great, wonderful ways.

Sometime ago I said to the Lord, “God forgive me for being materialistic and loving, joy in beautiful things. Forgive me.” And His answer was, “Remember I give all….He took me to the scriptures-

He gives all things abundantly to be enjoyed.”

We don’t see Him as a God that wants us to enjoy this life. We don’t see Him as a God that has abundance for this life. He outshines what I see, what I even think I know of Him by His abundance and His joy to give, His lavish generosity. But it does take being under authority.

So in my little swagger I got caught in it, too; that we’re going to be under the authority of this president. He is the one God put in office for this time. And our safety and provision will be found in the kingdom.

The kingdom is easy to enter. You have to be born again and you have to be a child and go back to being what a child is-utterly dependent and utterly ignorant.

Well, the book John understated and under-spoke of his book “The Great Exchange” is chapter after chapter of that will help you to learn how to let Christ be you instead of you. Say your famous quote, John, that we…I went to speak and someone said, “Martha, say that quote.” And I said, “I can’t do it” but John can. You have to look it up, too ha ha. It’s a little bit complicated in its simplicity.

John:
Yeah, I do, I look it up because I want to make sure that’s it’s exact.

Martha:
So you don’t know it either!

John:
I do know it but, but I, I think about it and go, Oh yeah, I’m going to screw it up. So “Christ’s life as my life is His life in my life, and that’s not my life as His life, it’s HIM.”

Martha:
That must have come from God. That is an incredible statement, John. So let’s end on that. You’ll have to show me, too. I’m going to put it on a card, one of my cards. “Christ’s life as my life is His life in my life, and that’s not my life as His life, it’s HIM.”

John:
It’s just, it’s so simple and so succinct and so it, it excites me that if I had had the wherewithal to ask Him, I would have asked for a statement that was that punchy and that kind of fun. And that’s exactly what I got. So I’m really grateful for it.

Martha:
I think I’ll end on this note:

In all things give thanks.”

And do we do that? Am I, am I ever up to that ideal? No! But this, this time and this circumstance if we aren’t grateful for what we do have, we’ve missed the point. It’s a time to be grateful. Every time I turn on that water I think, “Oh, God, what riches just water is.” And it was so for Israel. That’s why water out of the rock was the miracle because water is the first basic.

So let us allow the Spirit to open our eyes to gratitude as never before because…What did you read, Joan, in Deuteronomy? “When you get prosperous, don’t forget Me.”

Joan:
Don’t forget. A lot of bewares.

Martha:
A lot of ‘bewares’ about forgetting.

So again we, we bless everybody who listen and we ask God to bless you and give us…We we really ask for the word to come to bless you. And I, I hope that this is His word for the hour and the circumstance. In Jesus love pour all over the world, Lord.

This is my second ending…or third. But I…This has to go in. This is what do you need in this time? Faith. And where do you get faith?

Hebrews 12. “Let us strip off

Here’s a ‘let’.

…Let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, looking away…

Here’s how you get faith.

… looking away [from all that will distract]…

Do we not have distractions today? Oh, dear, powerful distractions.

…looking away to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize]…

Which is you and me.

…that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

So it’s your, in your relationship with Jesus that you can find the faith for the hour; His faith in you as a gift.

Seeking the Kingdom in Crisis Times – Episode #702 – Shulamite Podcast

In times of crisis our great need is exposed. We see our utter dependence on the Lord of ALL. If we’re looking for His Will and not our way, we’ll be in the Kingdom. It’s all about seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and then all these things will be added to us.

And the Lord woke me up early and said, “Cancel their trip!” And it was so painful to do because I knew…He didn’t tell me the reason. Only later did I realize that that mandate was going to come down and He, He knew that so He said, “Cancel their trip.”
Well, then another friend was going to have all her family and all the grandchildren up here and I called her and I said, “We are going to be under the authority of our President and we are going to obey.” And she said, “Martha, they aren’t coming.”
And so then I wanted to give somebody a birthday party and so we got all the, the plans together and,]]>

In crisis we live by leaning, needing and relying in and trusting and working to believe. The work is to believe, not to do. The work is to believe.

Martha:
I could go through this Holman Bible and just keep reading the names of Jesus; just so, so anointed to read just His name.

So if I’m not involved and Christ’s life in me is to live my life for me, how do you do that? And I can tell you that I struggled for years to believe that and I’m still asking to see and understand the fact that He, He is the me instead of me and we are one at the same time.

So how do you come to believe and function as reality? And I’m going to say my newest phrase for the answer to everything is, “Say it, pray it!” You have to speak it so you hear it. The hearing is…Faith comes by the hearing of the word but I didn’t realize it was me that I need to be hearing say it. And when I say it…We have, we mentioned this before in podcast that the Bible is so clear to proclaim it. So say it. “I am indwelt by the Son of God. Jesus Christ lives in me and I am crucified. Lord Jesus make that real in my life.” Say it, pray it.

I think it was a couple months ago the Lord spoke something to me when I was praying, very loud and very clear. I was praying for protection. I was, I felt like I was under assault. And the Lord said, “You do not need protection. You need faith that you possess protection as a FACT not a goal.” Now if you can take that in, that’s an incredible statement. It means that I have within Christ in me I have everything. He’s already given it, He’s already provided it. Whatever I need and beyond He’s, He has already earned, paid for, and given freely, unequivocally. So we do not need these different things. We need faith in His provision.

Then the other one is the word ‘let’. Let God. Let the word be rooted in you. Let the love of God take you over. It’s getting out of His way. Let is getting out of His way. Whatever you need you already have.

I, I learned years ago and I’ve had to learn it over and over and over again faith is past tense. If it is not past tense, it’s not faith. If you’re saying, “God give me, give me peace,” I sorry, He already has. Believe it that you have received.

My peace I give to you. Not as world gives it unto you but the peace of God Himself I give to you.”

So I have the peace. I have to believe the peace not ask for the peace. It’s not…I’m not being legal about it at all. But I’m just saying whatever you need you already have. God waits for you to see your need and claim the provision.

“You have not because you ask not.”

God wants us to come to Him as Father. Father loves to give. Father loves to talk to His children. Father loves to hear their little gibbly-gabble like I give Him a lot of time. But He, He wants to hear that. So let God be all He is by just don’t oppose Him, don’t resist Him, and don’t un-believe Him.

I’m still working on a Tape of the Month called The Evil Heart of Unbelief and it’s so, oh, it’s so terrible. I got to get through repenting then I can write it. I’m being funny.

The wonderful thing about Joan is she uses a lot of translations but Joan is really a child. She, she’s a prophetic child and she lives in all the scriptures but she loves the Living Bible. I think that’s so wonderful because it’s the child’s Bible. Do you have anything from the Living with you?

Joan:
Well, when Martha’s talking about how we get the, the word in us and how we believe and I love the Living Bible because this is how they start in Deuteronomy 6.

O Israel, listen: Jehovah is our God, Jehovah alone. You must love him with all your heart, soul, and might. And you must think constantly about these commandments I am giving you today. You must teach them to your children and talk about them…

And this is what I feel like how to get them in us:

talk about them when you are at home or out for a walk;

…at bedtime and the first thing in the morning. Tie them on your finger, wear them on your forehead, and write them on the doorposts of your house!

Now I feel like that’s our proclamation parts, our affirmation so we keep them, try and keep them close and, and then we talk to each other about things and if you have, if you’re a body I encourage you to talk to one another about the affirmations and encourage one another because this is how Israel learned, this is how we learn. And it’s in everyday life in the everyday things. If something’s going on with somebody, well, encourage them with a card. Oh, a word you have from your card. That’s what Martha’s training us in cards.

Martha:
Well, I happen to have some cards with me. Martha has a hard time keeping up with the volume of cards I have. But I brought…The Lord took me to these two and so I’m proclaiming them from, from us to you and ask you to join.

Most blessed

This is Jeremiah 17:7-8 Amplified

[Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river; and it shall not see and fear when heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious and full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding fruit.

But how do you get there? By leaning and needing and, and relying in and trusting and working to believe. The work is to believe. The work is not to do. The work is to believe.

Blessed is the man who believes in, trust, and relies on the Lord. He’ll be like a tree planted by the rivers of water.

That is a promise and a sure cause and effect. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you.” All power is perfected in weakness. Therefore I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses so that Christ’s power many reside in me. So I take pleasure in weaknesses, insult, catastrophes, persecutions, and in pressures because of Christ. For when I am weak then I am strong.”

Don’t we have the most critical hour of weakness of the flesh and weakness of the church and weaknesses of everything? This is the time were we see our weakness which we normally don’t like to look at and don’t admit and don’t even believe. We don’t even believe we’re weak as a child. And yet the grace is sufficient to the one who will be a child and one who will lean. And so we, we declare that.

The Amplified version says…

O Lord of hosts…

That’s the Lord of heaven’s army. So this is who you’re speaking to-the Lord of the armies, the armies of angels. And we know from Daniel’s story that they do war. When we pray, the angels, the host of angels are, began to war. We don’t take advantage of that enough or I don’t.

“O, Lord of host, how blessed and greatly favored is the man who trusts in You [believing in You, relying on You, and committing himself to You with confident hope and expectation].”

We are a generation that doesn’t know the word ‘commit’. We’re not committed and we have to be committed to each other and to God’s word and to God’s will. Sometimes being committed to God’s will costs you a relationship. But the commitment is to His will. The commitment is to His being the source. That word ‘committing’ is so key to knowing God. He’s committed to us as Joan read, as Joan saw. He’s committed to Israel and provided everything.

When I, I spoke to you before about the, the question and crisis is who is God. And I, I went to Isaiah 54 over and over again and, and God is our creator, husband, and it goes on and on which I read in the last podcast. But that creator…I said, “If You’re the creator, You can get water from a rock. You can bring manna from heaven. There’s no limit to the creator. He’s demonstrated to us, He’s demonstrated to us, hasn’t He, John?

John:
Yeah, absolutely.

Martha:
He’s, He’s…There is no obstacle to…Nothing is impossible to God.

So when we get, when the church gets hold of the united voice of His will in this crisis and how He wants to manifest Himself…What the…The question of this crisis is who is God. Is, is flu God? No. Is, is man and presidents and kings and, and evil, evil crooks, are they God? No. We have to know who is God in any situation and this God is creative, powerful, and He has promises that He wants to communicate to us.

But I had, I had this prayer from Ephesians 6:23 in the Passion translation. I love it and I just, I send it out as our cooperate, little group sends to you our listeners.

So may God shower his peace upon you, my beloved family; my brothers and sisters in Christ. And may the blessings of faith and love fill your hearts…

We can ask for that. Amazing.

May the blessings of faith fill your heart from God the Father and from our Lord Jesus, the Messiah.

That’s our prayer for you and for us. In Jesus name.

The Need is to Believe – Episode #701 – Shulamite Podcast

In the crisis, the question and actual crisis is who is God. When the church gets hold of the united voice of His will in this crisis and how He wants to manifest Himself, we will have everything we need. The work is to believe, not to do.

Seeing the beautiful tapestry of God’s faithfulness, the tapestry of relationship,His unfailing love and commitment during the troubling times in our world.

Martha:
Yesterday we had a podcast and this morning I think we have another one. And yesterday I realized that “I am crucified with Christ and I no longer live and the life I now live I live by the faith of the Son of God who love me and gave Himself for me.” And that means I don’t have to face this crisis. Jesus in me and Jesus in you will face it, deal with it in our body.

Jesus has come to live in our body and He is to live the life that we’re, He’s assigned us to live; not I but Christ. So yesterday I didn’t say that. But I’m not involved in the crisis. He is involved, deeply involved and His prayer will come through me and His life shall face it in my life and my circumstance. I’m not involved. That’s our liberty. I’m going to be fascinated to watch Him and hear Him in this vessel. So I’m not involved. The me of the flesh is dead. Jesus lives my life for me instead of me and He is present within me. So that’s a hard thing to believe.

Do you have anything from your manuscript, John? John’s finished the manuscript on The Exchanged Life.

John:
I don’t have anything in particular to read but I did when I sitting there and I was thinking about what you were saying yesterday it…You know, I have some stuff on sovereignty and both, both books…we’re working both books really kind of the same time. We’re both going to release them real close. We’re just waiting for the final editing of it and then get it printed.

And during this time it may be a little more difficult to print because if they don’t have staff that’s there, it’s something that’s not going to be critical-food, medicine, whatever. So it may be a delay in it.

But we’re, we’re going to have it ready to go right when this is over. Which it will be over. But I’m looking forward to the adventure of, of the exchanged life, of, of seeing Christ do this. I’m…That’s an adventure. That, that takes the fear out of it because I’m saying, “I’m going to see who He is during this time.”

And, and, and, and yesterday I can, I can a little bit about the sovereignty issue. When I thought about it I said, “Who would have thought two months ago, even a month ago, that, that He would shut down everything. That He would shut down all sports events, all concerts, restaurants. That He would put us all in the house, that we would all be in the house. And nobody would have thought that would have happened, you know. I mean unless you’re Nostradamus, you know, I guess. But regardless in seeing the overarching, overreaching, and hugeness of the entire thing, it’s, it’s only God that could have done this. This is sovereign.

Martha:
And we watch yesterday Jentezen Franklin…

John:
Um hmm.

Martha:
…on American’s News.

John:
Yeah. The https://americasvoice.news that…I was amazed that this news organization was having prayer, they were having worship, they were having communion. I mean, I’m, I’m thinking, “Ok, what’s the likelihood of that? What’s the likelihood of that happening?” And, you know, there’s some people on there that I may not personally align with or believe but, but the fact is, is like Paul. I said to you yesterday like Paul said, “The Gospel’s being preached. Who cares! Shut up,” (Philippians 1:15-18) you know. And that’s kind of how I, I saw it. I said, you know, “Wow, you know, “God, You are doing something so dynamic here. That You are…I mean this has never been done in our country that You just shut it down.” That we’re not going to meet, we’re not going, we’re not going to go out, we’re not going to go, you know, gallivanting around, vacationing, bla, bla, bla, bla, whatever. None of it. It’s over. And I, I, I’m shocked at it. But, but the, the shock is how sovereign it is, how perfect it is. And how we’re being taken through this for a deeper purpose and that’s what I’m looking for is the deeper purpose. And so anyway…

Martha:
I have…I did a series and I’ve been led back to it because I’ve been marking my Bible with every place where it says ‘let’, l e t. And it’s let Christ handle this. He’s Lord. He’s powerful. He will tell us what to ask for and, and for my need and your need Christ is all I need. He’s my health, He’s my joy, He’s my master, He’s my truth. He’s my everything, everything. And so…

This morning early the Lord said, “Call Joan and tell her to come now, to call now. She has the message of the day.” So I, I did text her and say, “Call me now.” And, of course, she took the word ‘now’ very literally and called me as she was supposed to do. But that’s what the Lord said. And then she began to share with me her insights and I thought, “Oh my does she have the message of the hour. So I turn it over to Joan and bless her and I’ve asked the Holy Spirit to be as brilliant as He was on the phone and He in you is. So here’s Joan Wentzel.

Joan:
Well, I’m on a…This was nothing special…My reading this morning…I’m on a Bible reading plan and I was just…My reading this morning was Deuteronomy 6-9 and I had read Deuteronomy 6 this weekend and spent some time in there but then I went on to 7 and 8 and was not quite into 9 when Martha called me this morning. So I will preface it with that.

But I just have done this plan for a couple of years and the first time I read through the Old Testament I was so acutely aware of Israel’s unfaithfulness to God.

And this time as I’m reading I’m amazingly aware of His faithfulness. I’m not seeing the, the Jews unfaithfulness because I am an unfaithful woman. And so…And I, I very much resonated with Israel’s responses and their sins and the troubles because of it.

But I saw in Deuteronomy 6 God lays a foundation, which is the same foundation for us, which is love. You must love Him with all your heart, and mind, and soul, and your entire being. He wants, He wants everything; all the love. And that’s the establishing of the relationship with Israel as well as us. And it is just the most…

This morning I saw a beautiful tapestry of God’s faithfulness, the tapestry of relationship and His unfailing love and commitment. And I feel like the same it was true for them is true for us and if you are willing to just go through…I think it was…

It’s such an encouragement to see that God had purpose in everything. He had…And He was faithful. Everything He asked them to do, He said, “I’m asking you to go in and possess the land that I have given. I have already gone before and given. I am going before and I am going to dispossess the nations. I’m asking you to be willing to go in but I’m going to do everything.” And I love it because it’s…

And having gone to Israel and I have a, a wonderful Jewish son-in law who I just love. They’re gutty people. They’re not, they’re not surface people. They’re gutty, they have heart reactions and heart responses and, and I love that about the Old Testament. It’s down where we all live. It’s just in real life.

And this is just a picture of all that God will do and how quickly we forget, how we, we in this age of grace believe Him to do everything but kind of forget that He has things that He’s called us to do; not in our own power, never in our own strength but Christ in us is the faith and the faithfulness of our lives.

And Israel…He tells in 1 Corinthians 10:11 that Israel’s our example and they are our warning because we are Israel, Israel is us because we are human and we are dust and we’re as frail as they are and we think the same things as they do because in this I love it because the Lord says, “Now when you get into the land and you’re full and you’re prosperous, you’re going to think your own power did this and I’m going to make it clear to you now that it’s not your power, it’s Mine. And then you’ll go on…”

And I even went into verse, into chapter 9 a little bit and Israel then goes on and just like us. Then they think God’s blessing them because they’re righteous. And He has to make it clear that we’re not righteous.

And, and what I see is He calls us to obedience but the foundation for that obedience is loving Him; everything. He establishes the entire foundation of love and out of loving Him everything else flows because by loving Him He is able to impart Christ to us and impart the love that is the foundation for obedience and for receiving the discipline and instruction that we must have, we absolutely must have.

And all the disciple and instruction He’s clear in here what’s that’s for, too. He says it’s so that we will walk in His ways, we will obey, and we will fear Him. All the same things that He requires of us today He asked Israel for. The indifference is we have the Holy Spirit and Christ living in us. Israel had the living presence of God, the cloud by day, the pillar of fire by night. Christ, I believe, was, was the presence with them. And God, the Father, with sovereignty fed them, clothed them, gave them everything but then said, “But you are Mine. I chose you My people. Not because you are wonderful or grand. You’re small and you’re kind of a little bit of nothing, just like us, but I chose you to be mine.”

And it’s just the most beautiful, beautiful picture if you’re willing. And I would encourage you to go in and underline everything God said He would do because He was willing to do all for them and I feel like the real instruction is for us, for me personally is to be willing and say ‘yes’ to His ‘yes’ that has already gone before me in my life.

Martha:
I think I’ll call her and say, “Ok, the Lord says more.” That’s wonderful, Joan.

Faith in the Faithfulness of God – Episode #700 – Shulamite Podcast

It’s such an encouragement to see that God has purpose in everything, even the crisis we are living in right now. God is doing something so dynamic in this very time. We’re never to live in our own strength but Christ in us is the faith and the faithfulness to walk it out.

God responses to living in obedience to Him. We can’t live with God in the state of rebellion to authority. In these times of crisis we’re called to obey.

John:
Here’s the…We’re talking about Dave Wilkerson and, and his prophecy about the season that we’re in. He said, “I see a plague coming on the world, and the bars, churches and government will shut down. The plague will hit New York City and shake it like it has never been shaken. The plague is going to force prayerless believers into radical prayer and into their Bibles, and repentance will be the cry from the man of God in the pulpit. And out of it will come a third Great Awakening that will sweep America and the world.”

That’s, that’s back in ’86 David Wilkerson said that.

Martha:
The Methodist Church is split between conservatives and liberals. The conservatives are building not a Methodist institution but they are, they are building a conservative platform where they call it the orthodoxy of believing the scriptures. And they’ve called it The Awakening. That’s what they’re praying for, travailing for, having meeting about. They are calling for, they are praying for the Awakening. That’s the word they call it. Which speaks to me that that’s what, that’s the word he used.

Oh, my gosh, I didn’t read this scripture: (Romans 13:2 TPT) So to resist authority is to resist the divine order of God, which results in severe consequences.”

I didn’t read anything of Watchman Nee either. I was going to do that.

Dave:
Isaiah 26:8-9 (KJV) kind of appropriate what we are discussing and also that link that you sent: “Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O Lord, have we waited for thee. For when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.”

Martha:
The next verse says but they don’t learn it.

Well, if men…This is the book of all books on authority is Watchman Nee. “If we are to serve God subjection to authority is an absolute necessity. Obedience transcends our work.” Then he says,  “Consecration does not cover the sin of rebellion. (Spiritual Authority p.43.) I don’t even understand what that means. You can’t live with God in the state of rebellion to authority.

I’ve often wanted to know the story, to follow people who are extreme radical haters of authority. I’ve often, often wanted to have one story that you could trace the consequences. “To resist authority is to resist the divine order of God which results in severe consequences.” So you don’t know. We don’t know…We don’t believe it’s consequence to our rebellion. But rebellion is as witchcraft. And the basis of life, of a Christian life is and it’s the foundation that he’s trying to build, can only build it through our obedience. Our obedience causes us a structure to be created within us that is immune to the storm. That make sense? He wants to build a foundation within us that we are unshakable, undefeatable. And that basis is the knowledge of God is sovereign. And if we reject that process, it’s really frightening.

Jean:
The wonderful thing about even a small group like ours coming under authority is that it shakes the world. It’s not just our little corner. Something happens in heavenlies, don’t you think?

Martha:
Jean, yes.

Jean:
That shakes…And when the United States gets under authority, it wraps the earth.

Martha:
Um hmm.

Jean:
I, I’m not just talking about Trump I’m talking about little pockets…

Martha:
Um hmm.

Jean:
…of Believers who are nobody even knows exist that actually changes the heavens, what’s going on in the heavens because God moves in response to the people who obey Him. And then the whole earth is shaken or set free; set free from the demonic or…

Martha:
That’s exactly what I was trying to say. That I have a new realization of the power of a group with the same mind and that’s why I told you who I was at the beginning because I know that that…Y’all have come to that issue on one ground or another. And that is the power that we can wield; it is.

Jean:
Like those two little women…

Martha:
Yes.

Jean:
…off the coast of Scotland.

Martha:
They were nothings!

Jean:
To anybody.

Martha:
They had no power and they created a world revival. We could do that, too. We could, we…This little group if it got in line with the Holy Spirit and with the order of God could pray.

I think Joan sees, that, that we, John and I have, are experiencing a new what, anointing, a new, a new today; a resurrection. And I, I really think our, our group is about to become new individually and together. I don’t know how that will look but….

John:
Well, even on the, I don’t know if it was on the post or podcast, I think it was on a post, Sandy from Brazil, she said she didn’t know where I went. She commented, she said, “In all the years, John, your voice has never been this loud. Is it just me or is there a shift happening? My head is bowed and my ears are open. I dare not fail this test.” And I think that, I think that’s…

Martha:
Is that your answer?

John:
No, no, no.

Martha:
That’s what she said?

John:
No, I, I said, “There may be, Sandy. I will be praying about it. All I can tell you is that I’m taking my place in a lot of realms. The whole crisis is a shaking that is exposing cores and, and giving opportunity to repent, seek God, and to get in our position. Without the test we probably would never find out the reality of who Christ is in us.”

Dave:
John, I can attest to what you just said. I read your blog that morning and, and I said something to Joan. I said, “Huh, little difference there. It’s quite a bit stronger than I’ve ever in all the years that I’ve been reading.” I just noticed a big difference and change as far as your strength and the message, the power of the message.

John:
It’s crazy, really.

Martha:
You weren’t aware of it.

John:
I wasn’t aware of it. No, I, I did know it was strong but it…Not like I, you know.

Dave:
In the past it seemed like you were I, I guess edited or, or somewhat…Your message was always good and, and challenging but there was something about this that was more eminent, eminent, fiery, eminent, you know. It’s time, wake up! Time to wake up.

Martha:
Tell them that you are taking authority over whatever God’s given you. That’s been exactly where you are and that authority is manifesting in your writing.

John:
I’m taking my position.

Martha:
Oh, you’re taking your position.

John:
Absolutely.

Martha:
The Lord’s been calling him to come up and take his position even though he doesn’t know exactly what it is but to come up higher and, and he’s, he’s bewildered said ‘yes’ and so it’s manifesting, Dave. It really is. I agree with you. But it’s, it’s all about authority. Few will take the authority that, that has been given you and operate in it. Then you’ll rule and reign things just by authority.

Joan:
I listen to Derek Prince a good bit when I’m cooking. He has wonderful YouTube sermons that you can look at and learn a lot. And I learned a lot. But Derek Prince talks about principalities over nations and in the early seventies he, he called the United States, the principality over us rebellion. He didn’t just single us out and say just us alone because he talked about Britain that the principality that was over Britain was pride. But it has so pierced me that the principality over us is rebellion because where rebellion is there is witchcraft and we see a lot of witchcraft in our day today.

Martha:
When the President called for us to stay home and started closing things down, they showed the picture of the beach, thousands of people on the beach close in with each other. And I thought that is the picture of rebellion. The people went berserk having parties. People went berserk having, doing whatever they like. They were free, free of their jobs and so they considered that freedom to do excess of every kind.

John:
They believed it was a, a liberty…

Martha:
Yes.

John:
…to basically go have a vacation.

Martha:
Uh huh.

John:
Oh ,WOW!

Martha:
Yeah.

John:
Free vacation.

Martha:
In disregard of the, of the plague. And there was a twenty-one year old young woman that disregarded and she wrote on Internet. She said, “I, I disgraced it and went and did what I wanted to do and now I have the virus.” And she was not, not….She knew. She said, “I’m warning you, o-obey this. I didn’t and now I have the flu, the flu and I’m in bad shape.” And we learned that people drove from Atlanta to, to get all the food from our stores and we wouldn’t have any. Isn’t that…Oh, I think that’s awful. They drove up here to get the food that’s left us lacking.

John:
They cleaned the shelves out.

Martha:
They cleaned the shelves.

John:
All the meat, they took all the meat. They took everything. They went in and we weren’t rationing, they were rationing down in Atlanta, they weren’t rationing up here and they came right up here and bought it all.

Martha:
Uh huh.

John:
And everyone’s like, “Oh crap. What are we going to do now”?

Martha:
And we’ve seen cars from all over Northern US. Where? Wisconsin, Ohio of people coming to the mountains to get away from the plague and bringing the plague to us.

Seeing Rebellion and Authority in Our Crisis – Episode #699 – Shulamite Podcast

You can’t live with God in the state of rebellion to authority. The basis of a Christian life has its foundation in obedience. God wants to build that foundation within us so that we are unshakable, undefeatable in these times of crisis.

Episode #698
04/19/2020

With Martha Kilpatrick and hosted by John Enslow
Special Guest: Joan Wentzel and Jean Mixon

This the continuation of a series of podcasts started in Episode #697
As the world feels the reverberations of coronavirus, could it be God readying our hearts for a Great Awakening? Are we seeing the preparation of His Bride.

John:
You know, I heard…I don’t remember if it was Wallnau or who it was but anyway they were saying that, or it may have been this other guy that I was talking about, I think that he was saying, it was, he said that the first Great Awakening was in 17 whatever it was, and directly after that Great Awakening was the Revolutionary War. Then the second Great Awakening came and shortly thereafter was the Civil War. And now we’re talking about the third Great Awakening.

Now you have an amazing blessing of, of spiritual influx and a, and a blessing but what’s on the other side of it? If it was major wars, revolutionary war, civil war, what is, what is on…

What are we being prepared for? What is, what is the Great Awakening leading to? It’s not just so that we can go around and be happy. There’s something that He’s preparing. He’s bolstering His children because there’s something coming. It’s a Who! But something’s coming. And I don’t know what it is. So it may be the Great Awakening. It may be, you know, an amazing thing. But if it is, it’s so we’re right so that when we go into a major trial and testing…

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
…we’re not feeble, weak and unprepared.

Martha:
There are things being said online that people are having encounters with the Lord, prophecies, that the Lord is returning very, very soon.

John:
Well, that would be a perfect time for having a Great Awakening right before that.

Martha:
Awakening to Him perhaps.

And, of course, my assignment is to write about the Bride and so all that we’ve been through lately has been, been the crucible to form the Bride. And the Bride…

Everyone that has given all to God and wants His all will whether they know it or not be, be involved in the formation of the Bride by the Holy Spirit.

So we…He’s at work for the Bride, preparation of the Bride. And it could be that the…There’s a lot of controversy but I’ll just say what I believe is clear in the scripture that when we leave, when we’re called to meet the Lord in the air, He won’t be coming to the earth yet, but, we’ll meet Him in the air, and the door will be open to the Marriage of the Lamb. So that could happen really at any time.

So it’s a matter of being ready and, and the way you’re ready is, is to seek Him, repent, and be forgiven and forgive. Preparation is One on one, God and me. But it’s got to end at the point…The end of my book that He’s going to give me is going to be “Whom have I in heaven but Thee and there’s none upon earth I desire besides Thee.”

God is going to be absolute IT. There’s…There will be no…We will be like Brother Lawrence who lived a life where it was just Him and the Lord. But he affected millions. He affected the people of his time and he’s still, he’s still living because it was he and the Lord and no one else.

And it doesn’t mean you exclude anybody. It means that Jesus in us communicates with us. Does that make any sense? We’re, we’re communicating with Christ in each other because there’s only Christ. He’s the, He’s the only one. There’s no other life but Him. He’s the secret place. He’s the altar. He’s the goal. He’s everything. He’s the only thing and the everything.

And being made a Bride and being conformed to His image is just being reduced bit by bit so that there’s I decrease and He increases. I have to decrease so that He can increase.

John:
Well, we’ve had a major, major, major reduction. This has been the reduction of everything.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
And, um…

Martha:
And He is the only security.

Joan:
Well, I have been reading about Cyrus and just pondered this time because we’re in strange times, and one thing I’m learning is that God’s will doesn’t look like anything I think I know.

Martha:
Laughing!

Joan:
He is He is God and He does things His way. And so in reading about Cyrus the one thing that has pierced me in getting to know God in His strange ways is in Isaiah 45:4 God says clearly, “For the sake of Jacob My servant, and of Israel My chosen, I have called you by your name. (Speaking of Cyrus) I have surnamed you, though you have not known Me.”

And the interesting thing is people are opposed to Trump because He is not good, we’ll say. He doesn’t have a lot of… I’ve heard it said that he doesn’t have common decency which is just the way, you know, people view him but especially Believers because we have such a view that God will only use a good person. But where His chosen are concerned and those He loves, He is able to use anyone and Cyrus did not know God. He was not a Jew. He was not a Believer. But He was God’s chosen for the purpose of God’s chosen Israel.

And I think that is what God is teaching me about coming under His sovereignty and His will is it’s coming under His mind. And we have the mind of Christ but do we stay in the mind of Christ? I know I can speak for myself I often go off-roading into my own little world of thinking I know. So I don’t stay in that. But we have the mind of Christ and God is so wonderful to reveal things to us that we don’t understand or that are not familiar. And Cyrus was certainly not familiar to the Jews.

John:
He does it over and over again. He chooses men like Andrew Jackson who go out to the back and, and duel in the backyard of the White House. He choses Golda Meir who wasn’t necessarily godly. She just was chosen. And, you know, He, He chooses who He wants to use. We don’t get to, we don’t get to put Him in a cookie cutter.

Martha:
He chooses the foolish, the base, the despised. Every…He chooses the, the least. And the least are able because they’re not filled with…I’m, I’m sure Donald Trump really he seems to regret his wrongs as much as…

John:
Of course, he would.

Martha:
Yeah. Sometimes God can’t use a capable person. Some times…

John:
No, if …

Martha:
…they’re the worst choice.

John:
Well, if it was my capability, if I was perfectly, you know, fit, then I wouldn’t need Him.

Martha:
Um hmm.

Joan:
And God raised up Churchill for such a time as WWII. He had, he was so criticized and he was, he was, he was an odd duck.

John:
He was an odd duck.

Joan:
But he was God’s sovereign choice…

Martha:
Um hmm.

Joan:
…and he pulled that nation…

Martha:
Yes, he did.

Joan
…through the Lord

Martha:
Good point, Joan.

John:
Look at Patton.

Joan:
Oh, and Patton, he was another.

John:
Crazy. I mean, right? But perfectly fit for that position at that time. You can’t, you can’t tell God who He’s going to choose and what they’re going to look like. If you believe you know that kind of stuff, you’re, you’re going to be highly offended.

Joan:
And I think we have a lot of folks highly offended by Donald Trump.

John:
Uh hmm.

Martha:
Um hmm. And they think they’re right.

Joan:
And think they’re right.

Martha:
Proud to be right.

Jean:
I think as a society we’ve been indoctrinated by politicians and their handlers…

John:
hmm.

Jean:
…to believe that dissimilation is truth and that it’s you deceive the people by not being honest. And Trump tells you exactly what is on his mind. He doesn’t clean it up to please you or the news media or anybody else. And the media, the media is very used to these politicians catering to them.

John:
Um hmm.

Martha:
Oh, Jean, I see something that I’ve never seen before in him. He may not be a good man but he is without guile.

Jean:
He is without guile.

Martha:
And that’s what this, this society of ours cannot understand nor tolerate. He’s essentially honest. I think that’s what I want to say. That’s he’s, he’s as honest as a little boy.

John:
Hmm. He is a little boy.

Martha:
He really does at times. He is a little…He’s, he’s retained that, that childlike honesty. Just plain, plain…He’s not…I was thinking of Nathaniel, a man, a Jew in whom there’s no…

John:
Guile.

Martha:
Guile. Thank you. He has no guile. He’s…And that’s why he hates guile.

Jean:
Uh huh.

Martha:
He hates the…

Jean:
And doesn’t tolerate it.

Martha:
Uh uh. He names it. He names it.

Jean:
We have watched him get rid of people in his own administration because he wouldn’t tolerate their guile.

Martha:
Uh huh.

Jean:
And it’s working its way down. I don’t know whether you’ve noticed it or not…

Martha:
I didn’t know.

Jean:
…what’s going on right now.

Martha:
Ok.

Jean:
It’s still going on and he is chopping people’s heads off and moving them out of the way.

Martha:
And…

Jean:
And, of course, the media’s going nuts…

Martha:
Uh huh.

Jean:
…because those are the people they depend on…

Martha:
To support their lies.

Jean:
…to get their…

Martha:
Oh.

Jean:
…point of view out.

Martha:
Right.

Jean:
Which has nothing to do with reality…

Martha:
Right.

Jean:
…or truth.

Martha:
And see from Nathaniel the figure in the Bible I was thinking of Jesus said, “Behold, an Israelite in whom there is no, a true Israelite in whom there is no guile. The heavens will open for Nathaniel.” And that may be, who knows.

Jean:
And partly I see that in Lance Wallnau.

Martha:
Uh huh. Oh, yes.

Jean:
He does not bother to be nice and politically correct on any basis. He blurts it out. And one of the things that stuck to me…He’s rocked my world. But…Well, he has. Plan! Do you notice when you watch him that he hasn’t got a plan. He’s got, he’s got this one idea that he’s on and he goes after it and he lets it go wherever it goes. I’m just amazed.

Martha:
Say his name clearly.

Jean:
Lance Wallnau.

Martha:
W-A-L-L…

Jean:
W-A-L-L-N-A-U.

Martha:
You can see him on Youtube.com

Jean:
He’s just turned my world upside down.

Seeing Rebellion and Authority in Our Crisis – Episode #698 – Shulamite Podcast

Are we at the precipice of disaster or on the edge of a great awakening? And what role is Trump playing in these days of crisis where there is a call to prayer?

John:
Well, Martha you just did a, a message of the month about the coronaviruses and about the will of God and where we’re at right now. And I’m pretty amazed at the message. It’s very powerful. And you, you had mentioned submitting to our authority and you talked about Trump being the man that, that God’s put in there in the office as a Cyrus to bring His will.

And I heard someone, I think he’s a straight arrow, but I heard someone say the other day that, that He went to one of the Trump rallies and he was grieved because it appeared like everybody was worshipping Trump.

And I thought about that and I, I know that, you know, God is basically taking down all our idols. He’s, you know, trashing our economy. We, we, had trust in our money and then within two or three weeks we lose trillions of dollars in the economy and our 401K’s that were our safety net, they’re trashed. And our jobs that we felt secure in, we’re required not to go if we have them at all. There’s just so many idols that we have: church, our pastors. He, he mentioned all kinds of stuff. And he said but he was grieved by going to the Trump rally and seeing the people and it was almost idolatry of Trump. And I, I can see that.

But I also have more of your view of it. You’ve got a nation of rebellious people who now are supporting and celebrating God’s choice in that place. And, you know, I never know what God’s doing. I can never tell what God’s doing. And for, for there to be a surge like that! Yeah, ok, we’ve been, we’ve been leveled by this. You know, whether you believe it’s, it’s a overkill, whatever, it doesn’t really matter, God’s done something.

And you’ve got people that have been rebellious who are now celebrating God’s choice. And I think, I think there’s a real purpose to it. I think it’s a real…God does things totally different. He will allow us to go down rivers that look like they’re going one way and it’d be totally different than that way.

And I’m not worshiping Trump. I’m worshipping the God behind Trump. And I’m blessing His choice, God’s choice of who He’s put here.

Now He put Obama in there. He put Clinton in there. He put Bush in there. He put them all in there. And, no, I didn’t have the same blessing. I did it in fear and trembling, I blessed. This one I really want to bless. I have a, I have a great joy for Trump to be in there. I’m blessing Him all the time. I’m like, “Oh, God, please give Him wisdom.”

And if you’ve got rallies of people who are celebrating God’s choice…And, of course, Martha, we’re human, ok. We’re stupid, stupid humans. We’re going, we’re going to go off. Anything that we do we’re going to go off, anywhere. Yeah, it’ll go off in idolatry but God’s able to deal with that, too.

So, I’m excited. I take the man’s warning. I think he’s right. I think, you know…But I…We can’t look to our government. We can’t look to our finances. We can’t look to our jobs. We can’t even look to our churches or our pastors. We can look to Him. That’s it!  It’s all we have. But I’m really, I’m, I’m, I’m excited. I’m excited to watch.

There’s another prophet, preacher, Jeremiah Johnson I heard. He had a dream the other day. And he said that…And you, we all, we all have these opportunities now to listen to things that we wouldn’t have normally listened to because we’re sitting at home “sheltering in place.” So I heard him and he said he had a dream. And he said that he saw Trump in a baseball game and he was at the, the plate, the home plate and he was getting ready to hit the ball. And he saw that there was a fastball being, being shot at him. They were, they were going, they were going to do a fastball, curveball, whatever. I don’t know… I don’t remember the exact details of it. But regardless it was…They were…Evil was throwing a curveball to him that was going to take him out. And, and there was a major wind that came through and slowed the ball down and he hit it out of the park. And that’s what I’m thinking. I’m blessing God to do that. I really want that to happen. I want His hand to come and allow it to hit it out of the park.

I’m ready for all this evil, evil cabal of, of people who are trying to and don’t even care if they destroy our country in doing it. They just don’t want him again. I’m thinking “Wow, you would be willing to tank the entire country, you’d be willing to tank everyone’s retirement, you’d be willing to trash us as a economic powerhouse in the world, all for what. So you wouldn’t get God’s man in there.” That’s what it is. That’s why they’re so…

Martha:
It kind of proves it is God.

John:
Now see, that’s exactly it…

Martha:
Behind it all

John:
Yes!

Martha:
Because the attack is unprecedented to me. I can’t imagine. Even Lincoln suffered a lot of attack, but it couldn’t possibly be the size of this one because of the sheer communication.

John:
That’s right. That’s absolutely it.

Martha:
And he’s got to be sustained by supernatural power because who could stand what he goes, what he has to put up with.

John:
I couldn’t. I really couldn’t.

Martha:
I don’t think he could either but he’s got, he’s been infused with God’s prayers, I think, from God’s people. But this is the hour.

John:
I think it’s proof. You’re exactly right. I think it’s proof that he’s God’s man because of the vitriol and the hatred and the venom that’s coming against him from people that I don’t personally believe are, are right.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
So I know this is real political and it’s real different from, from what we normally do.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
We, we’ve, we’ve jumped into political conversations on the podcast before, kind of danced around it. You’ve done…We did Jonah, the CD of the Month. We were, we’re hitting all around without naming what we were naming. This is different.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
This is a little more direct. And, and I think that it, the reason why it’s direct is because it’s a call of the hour.

Martha:
Um hmm. And It’s a crisis of huge dimensions. It’s just…

John:
Oh, yeah. This, this could be the end of everything. This could be our end if we don’t do what you’ve said in the Message of the Month.

Martha:
I think the, the outcome I want from the Message of the Month is the call to prayer and the call, and with the call to prayer always is a call to repent.

John:
Right, exactly.

Martha:
Every…And many people believe and, that this is the prelude to the Great Awakening.

John:
Right.

Martha:
They’re calling it The Awakening.

John:
Right.

Martha:
And the Message of the Month was about honoring authority and it was from the scripture. So it…Regardless…The beginning of a prayer chain and I, I said to her, “We’re little but we can, we can give our all. We can call for prayer and ask everybody that hears us to call for prayer.”

John:
Regardless of that one prayer we’re being called to pray period.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
Basically we’ve…I’ve said it in, in one of my posts, I said that He’s basically put us in time out. And He said, “Ok, it’s time for you to sit out.” And we’re, we’re in our corner so that we can think about it. Yeah, we can look at the, that our trust in, in our economy, in our blessing, in our…We can look at all that and we can repent and need to. But the prayer…

Martha:
Prayer for the nation.

John:
Prayer for the nation.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
Prayer for ourselves. Go and, and repent. Yes, absolutely. It’s not like it’s difficult. I can stir around in my soul just for a few minutes and find something stinky. But the Holy Spirit, you know, will lead us through…

Martha:
Uh hmm.

John:
…the repentance.

Martha:
Um hmm. You’re talking about the scripture I was on was the one that was prayed for President Trump. “If My people who are called by My name, humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.”

And it’s a great call going out among some wonderful men of God to take this up and pray along that line. That’s a powerful opportunity to change the world and to save our, literally save our nation. I believe that’s what’s at stake.

Are we at the precipice of disaster or on the edge of a great awakening? And what role is Trump playing in these days of crisis where there is a call to prayer?
John:
Well, Martha you just did a, a message of the month about the coronaviruses and about the will of God and where we’re at right now. And I’m pretty amazed at the message. It’s very powerful. And you, you had mentioned submitting to our authority and you talked about Trump being the man that, that God’s put in there in the office as a Cyrus to bring His will.

This the continuation of a series of podcasts started in Episode #694
Now more than ever we need to know that the blessing of safety and provision is found in the kingdom, but we also need reminding that disobedience is NOT.

Martha:
The message of the month last month was about the double blessing (February 2020 Message of the Month, Living the Double Blessing). And I am going to say, like Art Katz says, “This is really good stuff. You need to go buy this” (laughs).

John:
(Laughing) Yeah, exactly.

Martha:
And it wasn’t pompous. It was his confidence in the word of God.

John:
He knew what God had said to him.

Martha:
And, and the being entitled to a double blessing is gonna… That’s the message we need right now.

John:
Um hmm.

Martha:
All… We are promised as His children not just blessing but double blessing. And it’s the tape of…

John:
February is Living, Living the Double Blessing and, and We Have an Anchor is March.

Martha:
Okay. So it’s, it’s the discovery that as, in the will of God… And this is all dependent on the will of God. It’s why your posts are so relevant, crucial, answers.

John:
Yeah, because I basically go… The next post I take, I go into Psalm 91 and I will go into the will of God. And I, I reveal qualifiers, qualifiers of Psalm 91, of there shall no evil befall you or plague or calamity come near your tent. What is my part in that? Is it just because I’m the child of God? Well, actually no. I can, I can be born again and saved and, and, and still not live in Psalm 91 reality.

Martha:
Right.

John:
I don’t get the, I don’t get the carte blanche, do whatever I want to do and be able to claim that promise for myself.

Martha:
Well it’s like, the kingdom is like our barn, where all the sheep’s food and hay and bedding were, and you were simply trying to get them into your will so that they would be safe.

John:
Exactly.

Martha:
It’s the same picture. But we run around disobedient and death and not spending the time to come down and start getting in the word and listening.

John:
Right.

Martha:
And you’re right. God gives us the choice. And the initial choice, choice of fear can be changed by, by going to Him and learning who He is this moment for us. And so it’s kind of like your sheep story. We are sheep and we run from the, the home…

John:
Um hmm.

Martha:
…God’s made for us. And every, in the kingdom is every provision.

John:
I mean, if I was going to boil it down to a sentence, I’d, this is the sentence that I can pull from here: “Protection is for the one who follows God’s will.”

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
And protection is not found in presumption; it’s found in faith.

Martha:
And the faith is in a person, a personal person…

John:
Yeah. Absolutely.

Martha:
…who is aware of us individually and corporately. We’re in this together, but we’re also in it alone.

John:
I don’t have faith if I don’t, if I don’t know that I’m in the will of God.

Martha:
That’s true. Wow.

John:
If I, if I’m, if I’m AWOL and I’m not in, in the will of God, then I don’t have faith because I have guilt.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
And guilt is fear because I know that I’m not in the right place.

Martha:
That’s right.

John:
So, you, you know, you have to, to get that faith. I have to know the will of God and follow the will of God according to what He’s, He’s saying.

Martha:
Oh wow. Faith depends on our obedience.

John:
Absolutely.

Martha:
Good night.

John:
Well, if I, I don’t have the faith… I may have false faith. I may have presumption. I may have assumption. I may have all kinds of -tions but if, if I don’t, if I… If I know that I know that I’m in the will of God, I’m exactly where He wants me to be and doing what I want, what He wants me to be doing, I have utter faith in His provision, of His life, of His, of His, the names. Everything comes through. I, I, I don’t have fear. I don’t have guilt. I’m in the will of God and I can stand resolute that, that, that He will come through. I can, I can do what you did like when you were in the garden and waved off the storm. Those things can happen when you know you’re in the will of God.

Martha:
Yes, that’s true.

John:
But if you’re not…

Martha:
And they can’t be…

John:
Right.

Martha:
…if you’re not.

John:
Exactly.

Martha:
And it’s a life… I told someone this morning, “The rest of your life—” She’s in a terrible situation, sort of immovable. And so I talked to her about God’s, being in God’s will and I said, “The rest of your life, you have one question: ‘What is Your will?’ And you have to live for His will and then you’ll have everything.”

I was going to speak somewhere and I, I just had the passing thought, “Oh, maybe I need some new, something new to wear. I don’t know. Never mind.” Came to my door. Someone chose it for me. Perfectly beautiful. And I said, “Oh, oh you shouldn’t have done that.” She said, “Martha, you don’t get it. I saw that dress and God said, “This is for her.” So there is the fulfillment of “Seek first the kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.” It’s, it’s a miraculous life if only we would bow our neck and our will to the will of God.

John:
Well, it says that, “Who’s the family of God? Those who are in the will; those who do the will of the Father.”

Martha:
The mother, brother. Who’s my mother…

John:
Who’s my mother, brother, sister…

Martha:
Those who do the will…

John:
Those who do the will of God.

Martha:
…of God.

John:
And so that, that… The will of God and your faith and your, your standing and they’re all, they’re all connected. I… Family…

Martha:
Um hmm. Yes.

John:
I’m in the family of God…

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
…when I’m in the will of God.

Martha:
Oh.

John:
And then I have the faith to do…

Martha:
In the, in the family…

John:
…in the family.

Martha:
…you are there for the family.

John:
Absolutely. I, I…

Martha:
Wow.

John:
As an ambassador of the king…

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
…I can come in, in the will of the Father with the life of the Son and I can, I can, you know, bring the power of the Spirit through. But if I’m not in the will of God, I can’t, because I’m not in the family. I’m, I’m, AWOL.

Martha:
Right. You’re outcast.

John:
Yeah, sure enough.

Martha:
But there is also a danger of mixing the flesh in with it, of knowing the will of God and doing it in the flesh.

John:
Yeah, yeah, yeah. That’s good.

Martha:
That’s disobedience. But that’s another whole…

John:
That’s a whole nother thing, right?

Martha:
…podcast right there. We’ll have to get on that one.

John:
Well just doing The Great Exchange, that, I go into that quite extensively about the will of God in the flesh. And you, you can’t do that. I, I talk about a guy, who, who calls himself the ordinary, radical Christian and he, he basically jumped in and did, did what he felt, what, what he felt should be done rather than finding the will of God. He’s like, “I found where God was working and then I jumped in.” Well, that’s, that’s not, that’s not the way it works.

Martha:
It’s a relationship relationship.

John:
Absolutely,

Martha:
It has to be heaven coming down, not earth going up

John:
Right. With everything.

Martha:
With everything.

John:
Um hmm.

Martha:
So the question in all this crisis is, “Who is God?” Because death is stalking and life is calling.

John:
Here’s a, here’s a sentence I, I wrote in here. “I can’t leave Christ’s will and go on my own way and expect His blessing.”

Martha:
Well, I’m… I want some quotes from your Exchanged Life.

John:
Yeah. I’m, I’m real excited about it.

Martha:
Because we’re on the verge of publishing it.

John:
Sure enough. Yeah. We’re going to…

Martha:
That’s going to be a big, big day.

John:
…put it up on Kindle and then we’re going to print it. We’re going to get both The Sovereign Touch and The Great Exchange both up and out. We’re, we’re, we’re literally right at the edge. And the Bride of Christ is coming.

Martha:
It’s, it’s, it’s being birthed.

John:
It’s so huge. It’s so huge. It’s a big baby (laughs).

Martha:
(Laughing) It really is. I about can’t bear it.

John:
Right. Exactly.

Martha:
There’s… He’s… The riches in the scripture about the Bride are just endless. I just beg for prayer that I will have the anointing, the words of the, the ear to hear Him as He wants to speak about what He’s giving me. This last trip, I feel like what He showed me was the Bridegroom. So that’s going to be part of it, too; not just the Bride but the Bridegroom.

John:
You can’t, you can’t have a bride without the bridegroom, that’s for sure.

Martha:
Well, I pray this message is a blessing to the body of Christ, brings peace and relationship and revelation. We just, we pray that, that this will be a revelation of Himself.

John:
It’s just a, kind of a clarion call of, of our dependence and our need to be in that dependence.

Martha:
Um hmm. Yes.

John:
And, and the safety in our dependence, you know. We’re not cast on our back like a, like a ewe. We’re, we’re cared for and it, but we have to be utterly dependent.

Martha:
Yes. And, John, I think pretty soon we’ll be printing Kingdom Children and Kingdom Safety.

John:
I…

Martha:
I hope to do that­­­, too.

John:
I would love for you to do a whole kingdom book.

Martha:
I would, too.

John:
Yeah.

Martha:
I would, too.

John:
And you’ve got…

Martha:
Please God.

John:
Well, you have the, the material there.

Martha:
It’s already been…

John:
It’s already been there. And I would, I would love that.

Martha:
I would love that, too, because that was my verse from the very beginning of my walk when I didn’t have, know another Christian, born again person in the world. That was my verse: “Seek ye first the kingdom.” And there’s a whole history of some fifty years…

John:
Um umm.

Martha:
…seeking the kingdom.

John:
Power. It’s powerful.

Martha:
Well, God bless everybody and may peace, the peace that is God come on all of us.

John:
Absolutely.

The Blessing of Kingdom Living – Episode #697 – Shulamite Podcast
Now more than ever we need to know that the blessing of safety and provision is found in the kingdom, but we also need reminding that disobedience is NOT. We cannot disobey the will of God and expect the covering and care that resides within His will alone.

And you’re right. God gives us the choice. And the initial choice, choice of fear can be changed by, by going to Him and learning who He is this moment for us. And so it’s kind of like your sheep story. We are sheep and we run from the, the home…
John:
Um hmm.
Martha:
…God’s made for us. And every, in the kingdom is every provision.
John:
I mean, if I was going to boil it down to a sentence, I’d, this is the sentence that I can pull from here: “Protection is for the one who follows God’s will.”
Martha:
Um hmm.
John:
And protection is not found in presumption; it’s found in faith.
Martha:

This the continuation of a series of podcasts started in Episode #694
God promises that all the things we truly need are found in the kingdom. He provides all for His children! But when crisis comes, do we remember His word?

Martha:
So this ironic and hysterical and funny thing is, that’s going on among us, is exposing us. And what it’s, what, what crisis, crisis does is it exposes who you love and what you love and whose love you love. And we’re finding out that we don’t believe. We’re finding out that we don’t know what to do. We’re finding out that we are, we are children afraid and panicked and we’re doing funny, strange things – including me.

But the fight is not usually against the enemy. It’s against my flesh. And to conquer the flesh is to believe in the Spirit and to surrender to the Spirit.

So this is a time to watch God and watch for Him and listen to Him, to have Him show us who He is. And who He is, is going to be everything. He says, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.”

What we’ve been discovering is to be in the kingdom is to do the will of God. The will is the kingdom and the kingdom is the will. And if we pray, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”, the kingdom is the will of God and when you are in the will of God, you’re in the kingdom. If you’re not in the will of God, you’re not in the kingdom. And I have this booklet on line called Kingdom Safety, which right now on is, is very relevant, isn’t it, John?

John:
Apropos, very apropos. Absolutely.

Martha:
And it, what it’s, what the little booklet is about, is if you’re in the kingdom, you’re safe.

John:
Well, you’ve got the, the Kingdom Safety. You’ve got Kingdom Children.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
It’s all… You’ve, you’ve got a, you’ve got a wealth ready to go basically speaking to this realm.

Martha:
Yeah.

So I’m, I’m just real excited about knowing Him and knowing that His names are real and living and death is stalking but life is calling and life is in His names. So, hallelujah! He is called the wisdom of God, the wonderful counselor, mighty God, redeemer. All of those names represent who He is and what we need. Our need is unending and His giving and His being is unending.

And so we, if we will be in the will of God, we will be in the kingdom. And if we’re in the kingdom, we will have all these things, whatever things that is. It may… I’ve always believed that all these things meant more than just food and clothing.

John:
Well, you know the cool thing is, is that you’ve got, you know, we’ll say 200 plus names here that tells us who He is according to our need. And, and why would He do that? And I believe the reason why He would do that is because He wants us to focus on His need, knowing that He already has our need covered, because that’s His character. And so I can, I can literally bank my needs and my, my needs-fulfillment in His character, in His person. Every single need I have is in Him so that I can focus not on getting my needs met, which is…

Martha:
Right! Oh good!

John:
It makes me so paltry. It makes me disgusting. It makes me… Oh, it’s awful. But I can, I can literally look for His need and look for, for satisfying His need because I already know mine are all done.

Martha:
Oh, John.

John:
Mine are already fulfilled.

Martha:
I was praying yesterday or the day before and I said, “Oh, God, I’m always telling You what I need. What do You need today? I want to know what You need.” Good grief, John.

John:
That’s it right there.

Martha:
The Holy Spirit is… Oh!

John:
That was it.

Martha:
Uh huh. That was it.

John:
That’s exactly what it is.

Martha:
Oh, wow.

John:
Which is exciting.

Martha:
Oh, that is.

John:
Because I, I don’t want to be a, a, a panhandler of the kingdom.

Martha:
Um hmm.

Well, and you know, we’ve, we’ve been traveling so little. We’ve left our, our waitress ministry. Did you know that? Oh my dear, dear friend Pauline wrote me about hinting at that. And so this precious waitress came at our table and, and we made a mess of the table and so when she came to clean it, I said, “Just please give me a rag and I’ll clean it for you. We made such a mess!” The food… The table was small and the food was going between us. And she said, “Oh, no. We’re in this together.”

John:
Um hmm.

Martha:
And I said, “Oh, there’s the quote. ‘We’re in this together.’”

John:
Yeah. And she… And, and those words that she spoke she knew, you knew, I knew, we all knew exactly what we were talking about.

Martha:
Yes.

John:
That it wasn’t just about we’re in cleaning your table together. This is, this…

Martha:
Right. It was eternal.

John:
Well, it was not only eternal it was, it was, “Listen, I know what’s going on out there. I know what’s happening.” I know that, that her, her income is going to be seriously…

Martha:
Oh yeah.

John:
…hurt because of the fact that, you know. I mean… We were told that this hotel will go down by 2 percent by Tuesday, the occupancy.

Martha:
And there, everybody that you spoke to was saying, “I’ve only been given two days to work this week.” And she had only been given one.

John:
One day.

Martha:
As a waitress!

John:
Right. And so when she looked and she said, “We’re in this together,” I realized she was saying, “This… We’re going to make it through this thing.”

Martha:
It’s a whole thing.

John:
“We’re going to do this.” You know. And, and, and I, I, you know, I don’t know if she was a Christian or not. She felt like a Christian.

Martha:
She did. I said, “I’m going to pray for your income.”

John:
And she wasn’t… She was loving it.

Martha:
Uh huh.

John:
Yeah. So…

Martha:
So we had a waitress encounter in the… (laughs).

John:
Yeah.

Martha:
So even on, right here on this podcast, we’ve discovered the Holy Spirit was doing the same thing. We want to live not for our need. That’s brilliant the way you put it. We have lived for His need…

John:
His need.

Martha:
…in this hour for His world.

John:
Because I already know because of His character and because of His names…

Martha:
His promises.

John:
…and His promises, that my needs are fulfilled. My needs are set.

Martha:
And I put down this verse that I was trying to find. It says, “You have exalted Your name above Your promise and Your word.”

John:
Hmm.

Martha:
So that means if the word is spoken, the promise exists.

John:
Wow.

Martha:
So the way to know Him is obedience. And I hand the mike over to you, John, for your two posts, which I cried over and blessed and got excited about. Wonderful, two wonderful posts. I really wanted them to go up today. But…

John:
So they’re going to, they’re going to start up tomorrow and tomorrow it’s “Fears Erupt as Waves of the Coronavirus Hit the USA.” And, and I, I love where I went with both of these posts. I love the direction that the Lord kind of touched me on with them. And… Because, like I said earlier on this podcast, it, it’s about listening and it’s about hearing. And so we’ve, we’ve been sitting, we’ve been waiting, we’ve been, you know, listening because, number one, we’re, we’re writing the books and, and getting those ready, but also we’re having to be in the will of God. We’ve having to know what the will of God is and…

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
…our individual circumstances and situations. And so I’m, I’m, I can’t wait for people to respond and, and get these and, and, and read them. By the time this goes up they’ll both be up. The, the first one is going to go up on March 16th. And then the next one is on the 19th. And I pray you really are blessed by them.

Martha:
I want to know a little bit more about what’s, what you write about in those two messages. Give us some quotes from your writing.

John:
Well, I mean, here’s one, one little section here: It says, “The reason Christ hated fear is because fear prevents us from listening. We are deaf when we are in fear. We are called to hear and obey, not assume and react. The waters of life become so muddled when we are in fear.” And, and basically I say that fear is one of Satan’s most powerful weapons because we are sheep and because once we start running, once we get into the hysteria, we have what’s happening in our grocery stores. We, you know, the shelves are being emptied with stuff just because you’re panicked.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
And…

Martha:
Oh that was a picture of sheep, John.

John:
It’s sheep.

Martha:
Wow. We know that one well, don’t we?

John:
Totally, totally.

Martha:
They can’t be, they can’t even be rounded up once they get afraid.

John:
No, they’re, they’re out of their mind.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
And, and, you know, I, I go back to the, the time when the sheep were on the, the snow bank and I had to go up. And basically, I was trying to lure them down so they didn’t break their little legs off of the icy… It was literally slick.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
It was ice. I was trying to woo them down, woo them down. We’re going… It… I mean, what, it was two hours?

Martha:
At least.

John:
I was, it was awful. I’m freezing. The stupid sheep wouldn’t listen to me. But that’s exactly the point. They wouldn’t listen to their shepherd.

Martha:
Right. They trusted you implicitly every other time.

John:
But they did not…

Martha:
But not when they are scared.

John:
…because they were utterly, stark raving fear. They could not hear me. And then I, like I’ve, I’ve said over and over I had to become a greater fear than what they feared. I had to become a… I mean, I scared them. That’s how I got their attention is I literally became a, a monster for them, so that they would run and go to where I wanted them to go. So… And I’m wondering, with all the scenarios that are happening right now, if God isn’t doing something very similar.

Martha:
Wow.

John:
He’s so sovereign and he’s so over everything. He will use our fears just like I was able to use their fear and was able to become, you know… He will do that. He will use things that make us afraid to get us in line.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
And sometimes, you know… Our fears are powerful. Our fears move us quickly. Thank about… I mean… We’ve seen memes and pictures of people with trucks full of toilet paper. I mean, you know, like, like it’s going to save their life!

So something’s going on.

Martha:
You know, John, I feel like in the last few years, I don’t know, we’ve experienced the kingdom provision.

John:
Absolutely.

Martha:
And we get, sometimes, I will get things I didn’t know I needed.

John:
Right.

Martha:
And it’s not a matter of even asking. It’s that you’re in the Father’s will doing His, His will and obeying His work…

John:
Right.

Martha:
…and so He is taking care of everything…

John:
Um hmm.

Martha:
…that I don’t even know I need.

John:
Exactly.

Martha:
And, and I, I think about the flood in my house was disastrous. It destroyed… Was accidental and it…

John:
Thousand and thousands of dollars, and destroyed books.

Martha:
$4000 worth of books and not insured. And wrecked my house for several months, at least three months.

John:
It was horrible.

Martha:
And when it was put back together…

John:
It was better than it was before.

Martha:
…it was, it was things that I couldn’t afford to do and wouldn’t have chosen to spend money that way if I’d had it.

John:
Right.

Martha:
And it was, it’s absolutely exquisite and beautiful and orderly and clean. And that was given to me through some suffering.

John:
Right.

With Martha Kilpatrick and hosted by John Enslow

As fear spreads across America and most of the world, there is power in the name of God for His beloved children. We are not without protection in this!

Martha:
John and I have been really seeking the Lord and experiencing the Lord and we, we feel like we have a message to bring.

I’m going to start by just experientially how I got there. Over the period of two days I, I would open my Bible and every time it would go to Isaiah 54. It’s a covenant chapter. It’s a, for several different conditions but it’s, it’s about difficulty. And I realized that to try to solve fear, to get rid of fear is not going to work very well. Do you agree?

John:
Yeah. I, I when I’m listening to a lot of the things that are, are being said online and, and different preachers and stuff like that, they’re basically saying, “We’ve not been given a spirit of fear.” And…

Martha:
“And don’t be afraid” (laughs).

John:
And don’t be afraid. And, and don’t allow your fears to manipulate you and, and lead you. And so I actually wrote two posts about this and they’ll be starting Monday and they’ll be Thursday. And I basically said, “You know, our, our fears are kind of make us, it hits us like we’re being covered with a blanket and clubbed with a bunch of baseball bats because we’re unable to hear God. And we’re unable to listen.”

For two weeks we’ve been away and we’ve been, we’ve been writing, and at the end of the time, basically Martha and I were going to go somewhere special for my birthday. And we were going to have a nice meal and just kind of celebrate my birthday. But where we were going to be doing that is in the center of, of Atlanta. And when we were getting ready to go down, the news and everything was basically talking about how horrible it is, how everything’s shutting down, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And I, I realized I was getting, I was getting fearful. It was stirring me up and I was becoming real concerned. And then I realized I couldn’t hear. I no longer could hear His will. And so, it was difficult.

But we came down. We prayed and we got the will of God and we believed we were supposed to come down. We came down. And so we’ve, you know, we’ve been experiencing that and we’ve had this wonderful time. And I knew that when we were coming down, I knew that God was going to give us a really wonderful message, and He was going to infuse the message in the circumstance.

And so, what are, what are you seeing is as the message? What part of your message? I wrote the two posts and I got, I have something real clear, clear direction about the all the crisis and all the coronavirus. So where are you on it?

Martha:
Okay. Well, for two days I would open my Bible to Isaiah 54 and that’s a book, a book of restoration and, and healing and it’s a covenant. And I would say… Finally, the fourth time I went, “Okay, God is trying to tell me something here. So I’m going to stop.” And I, I read it several times. It has a promise that to my children that will God teach them Himself. And then I, I saw verse 5 and I realized, HERE is what He’s after. Verse 5:

For your Maker is your husband. The Lord of Hosts is His name and the Holy One of Israel is your redeemer. The God of the whole earth He is called.

Well, I knew there was a question in this crisis. And… But the Lord gave me the answer and it revealed the question.

John:
That’s so cool. That’s really neat.

Martha:
The question in this situation is “Who is God to you? What do… Who do you know God to be?” Every situation is to learn who He is. All of our trials are to learn who He is, that He is God and there is no other. But your Maker is your husband is a staggering statement because it means that you’re… The creator of the stars and the moon and the universe and the world and all that is, is your husband. That means the Creator is your provider, your protection, and your, the giver. So right there, the solution for the whole, any situation is there. And then He says, “The Lord of Hosts is His name.” The Lord of Hosts means He’s the Lord of heaven’s armies. That means He’s the fighter against the enemy for us. God is going to show us through this His absolute, unbelievable, inexplicable, complete care of us if we get on the right ground.

John:
I think that’s the key right there. Being on the right ground.

Martha:
Yes. Okay, it goes on to name Him: “The Holy One of Israel is your redeemer.” Redeemer means salvation. You are going to be redeemed in every area of your life to the highest utmost and you’re going to be being redeemed and saved all of your life. So that is who He is and what He gives. And the God of the whole earth He is called.

So I got real excited because the question is, “Who is God?” It’s not what’s going to happen to me and what do I need and what is the crisis or what is God doing and what is the government doing and what is the world doing, what is the devil doing? No, no, no. It’s the, the question is, “Who is God in this?” And for me, the message is He is everything. He’s absolute… There is no name that isn’t Him. So He’s, He’s everything.

And then I realized the whole purpose is to know God. And if we get off on to fear, solving fear, we’re on the wrong ground. Because you can only solve fear… I’m going to show you how.

And Jesus said, “And this is eternal life: [it means] to know (to perceive, recognize, become acquainted with, and understand) You, the only true and real God, [likewise] to know Him, Jesus [as the] Christ (the Anointed One, the Messiah), Whom You have sent” (John 17:3 AMPC).

And you remember the one that, that where they said, what’s the… “We want to work, Lord Jesus, we want to work. What is the work of God that we can do?” And He, and He gave them the answer. “This is the work of God, to believe on God the Father and Jesus Christ His only Son.” To believe is the work. John 6…

John:
It’s 29.

Martha:
…29.

Jesus replied, This is the work (service) that God asks of you: that you believe in the One Whom He has sent [that you cleave to, trust, rely on, and have faith in His Messenger].”

So, see the work is set out for us to know Him and to know Him and believe Him. So we, we…

Of course, I went to Psalm 91 right away because I thought, “Oh, this is the message we’ve got to deliver is 91 because everything there is about pestilence doesn’t come near your tent and you will not be subject to all of this and no evil will befall you.” And so, I was going… Because we’ve been memorizing that and repeating it for a year at least. And I have seen parts of it become actual living experiences. But you, you have to go into this to see the condition. And the condition is,

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High God will remain stable and fixed and no power of the foe can get to him.”

So number two is, your statement is,

I will say of the Lord, He’s my fortress and my refuge, my God in Him I trust, confidently trust. He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler, from the enemy.”

Okay. But then further on in it, the secret place is simply that you’re in union with Christ. You’re in Jesus. That’s the secret place. HE is the secret place.

To come to that as a real faith takes work, because it doesn’t appear to have a reality to it that’s visible. But we are in Him. That’s the secret place. And you, we are to live dwelling in the secret place before the Father, under the wings of the Father, under the pinions of the Father, which are the wings that fly, and we, we have a testimony that we are to say to Him, “I believe You are my refuge and my fortress.”

Then on down it goes… I’m going to turn this over to John in a second. Okay, in verse 14 says,

He set his love upon Me there I will deliver Him. Because he knows and understands My name, has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, kindness, trust and relies on Me.”

It’s about the name. And then it says in Psalm 91,

You will not fear the pestilence.”

Well, we are in terrific fear of the pestilence. But we’ve got to go to who He is and His names gives us a clue to who He is. We know from Isaiah 54 that He’s, He’s our creator. He can create anything that we need. And He is every intimate relationship—relationship with the Father is intimate, relationship with the husband is intimate, relationship with the Lord is intimate. And all those names… If we cry out for those names, we will not fear.

John:
It just, it’s amazing to me that the— Because I’m always going back to the purpose of everything is to know, to know Him, to know Him…

Martha:
Yes, you do.

John:
…to know Him. And, and that is particularly this: knowing the Lord, knowing His name, knowing who He is, knowing His character, knowing His person.

Martha:
And in the last few days, I have wanted to know all the names of Jesus. So I searched and I found some things and I ordered a little pamphlet that has all the names of Jesus. Then I looked in my Holman Bible and in the back, it has all the titles of Jesus and I counted that, not accurately, okay, but it seems to me there’s over 200 names, in the Bible, of Jesus. And by those names we know who He is.

John:
Wow.

Martha:
He says to, He prayed to the Father, “I have made Your name clear to these disciples.” That’s what He gave them: “This is the name of the Father.”

And so I have in my own possession already – “when, before you call I will answer” – I have pages and lists of the names of Jesus.

John:
That’s beautiful.

Martha:
Isn’t that wonderful?

John:
It’s great.

Martha:
It goes on and on and on. And I think I’ve counted at least 180 if not more: He is the angel of the Lord, He’s the anointed One, He’s the Baby. Oh, yeah, He’s, His name is Baby. I didn’t, I wouldn’t have put that down. He’s the beginning and the end. He’s the Beloved Son. He’s Christ Jesus our Lord. I’m on the Cornerstone. Oh, I can’t wait to talk to you about the Cornerstone! He is the Cornerstone. That’s His name. He’s the door of the sheep. He’s the Prince of peace, the eternal Father, the first and the last. He’s the fourth, firstborn over all creation. He’s the fountain to wash away sin. He’s the good Shepherd of the sheep. He’s the Bridegroom. He’s the Head. He’s the Head of every man. He’s the Head over everything. He’s the Heir of all things. Oh, I, I, I’ve got… I’m sorry, I’m running away (laughs).

John:
Uh uh.

Martha:
And it just goes on and on. And I’m going to spend time. I want to know all His names. And it’s not something legalistic that you’ve got to say the name and you’ve got to pray to the name exactly. It’s, it’s relationship.

John:
Yeah.

Martha:
That you’re…

John:
Absolutely. Sure enough, that’s exactly it.

Martha:
…just in relationship

John:
Relationship, that’s exactly it.

Martha:
It’s just saying, okay, in situations where you have this in you, you will remember, “He’s the good Shepherd, I shall not want.”

John:
Um hmm, um hmm.

Martha:
So, this is for me, this is the dispelling of the fear.

John:
Right.

Martha:
The fear is to know who He is and He gave me this, this saying, these words, “Death is stalking but life is calling.”

John:
Right.

Martha:
Isn’t that, isn’t that wonderful?

John:
Absolutely.

Martha:
Death is after us, is it not? Fear is death. And you’re going to tell us about that in your, in your… And what I asked the Lord, when John told me the Lord had a message for us, and I asked Him to let us both have a message that melded…

John:
And it seems to.

Martha:
…and linked together.

John:
Right.

Martha:
Yes, it definitely does.

John:
You have one side and I have the other.

Martha:
So I wrote it, it’s not about to stop fearing, it’s about start believing. But first you start knowing…

John:
Um hmm.

Martha:
…the names and then you start believing.

As fear spreads across America and most of the world, there is power in the name of God for His beloved children. We are not without protection in this!
Martha:
John and I have been really seeking the Lord and experiencing the Lord and we, we feel like we have a message to bring.
I’m going to start by just experientially how I got there. Over the period of two days I, I would open my Bible and every time it would go to Isaiah 54. It’s a covenant chapter. It’s a, for several different conditions but it’s, it’s about difficulty. And I realized that to try to solve fear, to get rid of fear is not going to work very well. Do you agree?
John:
Yeah. I, I when I’m listening to a lot of the things that are, are being said online and, and different preachers and stuff like that, they’re basically saying, “We’ve not been given a spirit of fear.” And…
Martha:
“And don’t be afraid” (laughs).
John:
And don’t be afraid. And, and don’t allow your fears to manipulate you and, and lead you. And so I actually wrote two posts about this and they’ll be starting Monday and they’ll be Thursday. And I basically said, “You know, our, our fears are kind of make us, it hits us like we’re being covered with a blanket and clubbed with a bunch of baseball bats because we’re unable to hear God. And we’re unable to listen.”
For two weeks we’ve been away and we’ve been, we’ve been writing, and at the end of the time, basically Martha and I were going to go somewhere special for my birthday. And we were going to have a nice meal and just kind of celebrate my birthday. But where we were going to be doing that is in the center of, of Atlanta. And when we were getting ready to go down, the news and everything was basically talking about how horrible it is, how everything’s shutting down, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And I, I realized I was getting, I was getting fearful. It was stirring me up and I was becoming real concerned. And then I realized I couldn’t hear. I no longer could hear His will. And so, it was difficult.
But we came down. We prayed and we got the will of God and we believed we were supposed to come down. We came down. And so we’ve, you know, we’ve been experiencing that and we’ve had this wonderful time. And I knew that when we were coming down, I knew that God was going to give us a really wonderful message, and He was going to infuse the message in the circumstance.
And so, what are, what are you seeing is as the message? What part of your message? I wrote the two posts and I got, I have something real clear, clear direction about the all the crisis and all the coronavirus. So where are you on it?
Martha:
Okay. Well, for two days I would open my Bible to Isaiah 54 and that’s a book, a book of restoration and, and healing and it’s a covenant. And I would say… Finally, the fourth time I went, “Okay, God is trying to tell me something here. So I’m going to stop.” And I, I read it several times. It has a promise that to my children that will God teach them Himself. And then I, I saw verse 5 and I realized, HERE is what He’s after. Verse 5:
“For your Maker is your husband. The Lord of Hosts is His name and the Holy One of Israel is your redeemer. The God of the whole earth He is called.”
Well, I knew there was a question in this crisis.]]>
