This is the continuation of a series of Podcasts started in Episode #625.
Translating a spoken message into the written word while keeping the anointing is a job only the Spirit can do, and in Overcoming Self-hatred, He truly did!

John:
Well, I know personally, I’ve kind of turned in on myself. I mean, you know, talk about autoimmune. Spiritually I’ve had autoimmune. I’ve turned back on myself and hated myself and it is turned around and manifested itself in certain sicknesses and certain conditions and, and this is why this is so powerful because… You know, I wouldn’t have… I don’t know if I would have called it that. I wouldn’t have said, “Oh yeah I, I, you know, have self-hatred.” But it was clear that it was. I was, I was manifesting it, you know. It was… I mean whenever you rail at yourself, call yourself stupid, or, you know, there’s just a litany of ways you can hate yourself. And, “Oh, I’m ugly.” You look in the mirror, “I’m so ugly!” Or every time you forget something you say, “God, you’re so stupid!” Or when you forget to save your document and it gets lost and then you say, “Why are you so stupid?” You know, a lot of stupid talk. Or if you’re a perfectionist and then you just didn’t do it perfect. Boy, that there, you’ll turn on yourself real, real quick.

And I like what you said at the beginning, Martha. You were referencing autoimmune and how it does affect our bodies. We don’t get to go carte blanche into hating our self and not have there be devastating consequences and repercussions. Not only for me and my life but then it affects everybody I’m around. You become a person that you really probably wouldn’t want to be because of self-hatred. You can’t love someone else if you don’t love yourself. So I turn around and I start, I start shredding the people that are in my life because of it. This is why this message is so, so powerful.

I was thinking, Jennifer, I was thinking, you know, for them, for people that have been on the CD of the month for years and years and years, why don’t they just go turn around and listen to the CD of the month? And they could, you know. It’s a transcript, isn’t it? But I want to, I definitely want to say that this is so not a transcript. Not only have both of you worked to add so much to it, but Jennifer, you’ve reworked it. You’ve reworked it to present it as a written. And a lot of people will say, “I don’t like audio, I prefer written.” Well, this is ding, ding, ding! You’ve won the prize! This is it. But if, if you have listened to the message all this is gonna do is completely undergird it and reinforce it with this message and it does it in such a totally different way. You’ve literally taken mass chunks and reworked it completely. Tell everybody about that.

Jennifer:
Yes, this is, this is… These are not mirror entities. There is a specific anointing in the spoken word when Martha gives a message. And there is another anointing in the written word. And that’s a given across the board. That’s not just in these. That’s Martha’s booklets that she did that were based on salvaging incredible and basic foundational messages that the audio was going on and that we were having difficulty, you know, getting them translated properly. They were hard to hear. And so that’s where the booklet series came from—Knowing God, Loving God, Hearing God. And the anointing is not better. It’s not worse. It’s simply different. It’s just a different anointing.

And I was trying to think of an analogy because I thought sooner or later I’d be talking about this. And the closest I can, I can get to it is that the spoken word, that anointing especially in Martha can operate just as easily in a linear or a non-linear fashion. So imagine jazz or traditional symphonic. So traditional symphonic had certain movements, there’s repetition of themes throughout. It’s a fairly linear piece of music. Jazz, obviously, which a lot of people don’t like because it’s a little bit chaotic, leaps and turns and goes here and then there and doesn’t necessarily have to have one particular theme that’s allowing you to stay in touch with it. It goes where it wants.

And, you know, when Martha’s talking, sometimes her messages are pretty linear. There’s almost a scriptural outline. And she moves, it’s like stepping-stones, boom, boom, boom, and kind of builds and then there’s an end.

But there are other times when the Spirit is whimsical, you know. Not whimsical in the sense of My Little Pony, which a lot of people mistake that word as meaning fantastical. That’s not how I mean it. Whimsical, I mean it in the sense of flexibility; it flits where it will. It is not tied down to a single path.

And this particular message, Overcoming Self-Hatred was a whimsical message. Martha began by addressing us as a Body, as Church. We were having one of our meetings which— I get asked this question all the time, “So when are the days that you have church?” “When the Spirit leads.” And people are really concussed, I’m gonna use that word, because there’s usually a good ten seconds of silence while they try to figure out if I’m a dirty hippy or if I’m for real! (Laughs) Maybe both! (Laughs) But in this case she started out… So there is almost a jazz-like quality of this and it builds and it makes perfect sense and there’s anointing and you’re never lost but you’re on, you’re on a journey, you know. And what works in the spoken word just doesn’t necessarily work in the written word. Very difficult to pull off jazz in written because written by it’s very nature is a linear thing.

People play around with it, you know. You’ll read books where it’s like they open it with “He had just murdered a man”, you know. Oh that’s so edgy! And then the whole thing is finding out, you know, how you got to that point. But that’s about as much as you could play with a book. (Laughs) Story telling is, you know, it is what it is.

So if you’re talking about something like this, it had to be ordered differently. And some things that worked, little two sentence examples and anecdotes and I’ll call them jewels – they are jewels – didn’t make it in here because when they were put down, written, they felt like rabbit trails, you know. Like afterthoughts. They weren’t working with the anointing. They were obscuring the message in the written. Whereas they enhanced it in the spoken. And I don’t know how else to say it but…

So these, these are different entities. Go back and listen to the message by all means; absolutely, if you’re a Message of the Month subscriber, which I encourage everyone to be because, you know, these are jewels.

But the written is, it’s gonna be different and, you know, Martha and I did, we reworked a couple of different chapters and she wanted to add a scripture here and there and so they are in every sense of the word a kind of rebirthing, and a different presentation of Martha’s original revelation.

And, you know, I get pulled in by the Spirit. It’s not like I can sit there and just approach it like it’s grammar, you know. Sometimes that can be maddening because, you know, I will be like I’d really just like to knock out this chapter and then I get sucked in and then the next thing you know I’m having a dealing with the Holy Spirit, I’m repenting of three different things and it’s, you know… I don’t appreciate it but I also can’t argue with Him because He’s in charge. So (Laughs) He messes up my to-do-list quite a few times. But there’s safety in that I think. And for me I would much rather have the Spirit imparting actively to me as I go through it. That’s an assurance to me that the message is intact, that His anointing is there, that His voice isn’t being stripped away; His voice in Martha is a very specific voice.

So yeah, John, I would address that and say, “If you prefer reading, then here’s your chance. And if you’re somebody who’s heard the message, you haven’t heard this!”

John:
Well, then you can have the Kindle book read it to you so that’s kind of cool. But, you know, when you’re speaking, you’re speaking and are influenced and responsive to the audience, to those that are listening. So if, you know, there’s a whole bunch of nodding or amen-ing kind of, you know, you’re leading in that direction, you’re going with that kind of flow. Not that you’re not following the Spirit in it but we influence each other.

And so in this message in particular you were, you were with us. We were a Body message. It was a Body meeting and so you were, you were responding to us and we… There were several points that we broke into just repentance for different things and then you’d take it into this amazing prayer for overcoming which is a complete deliverance of overcoming self-hatred. It, it’s amazing! We were all on the floor. So it’s, there, this message was living and breathing. This message was something and when I edited it, I, you know, I had to take, you know, I had to change it. Even from what, what we heard and what I put out as the Message of the Month were two totally different messages.

Jennifer:
Sure enough!

John:
Because, you know, you were there and we were, you know, it was just totally different. So this is actually the, the third rendition of this same message and being rebirthed each time.

And so I, I originally, I… Jennifer reminded me the other day and said, “Do you remember this?” And then I remembered actually taping, where I was sitting, where you were sitting, and then I went, “Oh!” We were all doing a podcast and then I looked over at you and I said, “Oh, no, no. This is, this is the Message of the Month. You just keep going.” You know, because you were looking for input. You were looking for us to join in and I said, “Oh, no, you’ve now taken this… ” You were twenty minutes at least into it and I was like going, “No, no! You’ve just birthed a CD of the Month. How do you like that?”

So that was great and then, you know, but even in that, even though I knew that, there were moments where you were responding to us and we were responding to you. And I just had to cut that out. And then the whole repentance thing! That would just been a mess to listen to. (Laughs) But, you know, thank God people didn’t have to listen to that.

So, so I’m real grateful, I’m real grateful that we’re doing this. I’m real grateful that we’re recovering these messages because I don’t want them to die. I don’t want them to just end. I, I would, you know, if, if there’s another format to do it in, I would want to do it in that because you are talking about gems. This isn’t just, I mean, I’m not being negative here, but this isn’t just Billy Bob just giving up a message that, you know, he’s reading through. This is something that the Spirit has birthed. Now He’s birthed it three times. And there’s a, there’s a power, there’s a super power.

Think about the message, The Great Lie. I mean that has been one of the, the bestselling booklets that you’ve done. That message, we put it in two, at least two series, because I didn’t even know when I was putting them together. It went into two series and I realize, wow, this is, this is, it’s different every time I listen to it. The message is new every single time.

So I don’t want, you know, go on and on about this but I’m just, I’m pretty amazed at it. I’m pretty amazed at the, the leading of the Lord to do this and I really, really hope people will really enjoy it and are blessed by it and I’ve asked people “Please pray! Please pray for this that these messages would get in the hands of openhearted people. People that are open, receptive, and ready for this message. That this is gonna ignite in people’s lives and bring life.” That is, that is my prayer.

Episode #626
12-2-2018

With Martha Kilpatrick and hosted by John Enslow
Special Guest: Jennifer Wentzel

This is the continuation of a series of Podcasts started in Episode #625.
We know that Satan bombards us with hatred but do we know why? Do we understand the enemy has a purpose in this attack? A purpose with eternal consequences!

Jennifer:
I want to read just a little excerpt from Overcoming Self-hatred. And this one’s from a chapter called “Bombarded with Hatred.” As Martha says, you know, it comes from, from Satan. So I’m not gonna read the whole chapter, but I am, I’m gonna dip in and out here because it’s marvelous. Okay, so Martha opens up saying:

“Satan bombards us with hatred and if we don’t understand that we are being bombarded with hatred, we will end up in the destruction of self-hatred. As the Lord shown a light on my bombardment, I began to understand that the devil had assigned to me the most intense hatred. That hatred has come from people I loved. It has come out in people close to me. It even came from people I helped.”

And, see, that is something that I think we understand but don’t understand, maybe. That in the same way we can be a vessel for hatred or love depending on who we are listening to, where we’re surrendered – following the Spirit or not – so can everyone around us: family, friends, bosses, co-workers. And, you know, I see with a lot of self-help, they talk about not being afraid to, to cut people out of your life if they’re people who are destructive to you, who… And they don’t care if it’s family or not. And, you know, that is a godly principal. We follow the Spirit, so there’re times He will tie us to people for the purpose of saving their soul, because we are not our own anymore, you know. We serve God. That’s the difference between us and secular self-help.

But there are times when the Lord brings us to separation, and if we hold on simply because we don’t want to be mean or any of the rest of it, we’re standing under a fire hose of hate and we’re wondering why everything in the world is just, BOOM, falling down around us. So I, I think about that. And Martha’s examples in here are just so powerful and cause me to take another look at my life and make sure that I’m following the Spirit with everyone who’s in it. It’s pretty, it’s pretty important.

Okay, now here’s a part that’s amazing, because then it takes it off the, off, again, off the personal.

“It is devastating to find out that someone hates you when you have loved them and wanted the best for them. That feels so personal. But though the person is a willing vessel, that irrational hated comes from Satan whose mad fury is hate for God’s love.”

I mean, I… That just kills me, because again, it takes me off myself. It takes me off the self-consciousness, off the introspection: “What have I done to call this hate up?” It’s totally understandable again. And there’s a place for asking those questions, because you might be a magnet for hate because, you know, you are in hate yourself, you know? But that, that’s a reminder of what’s at stake here, right? It’s, it’s eternal! This is, this is about God and, and His love and this is about the war against that love. And, and Satan is, is, that is his whole reason for being, you know? Mad fury! I love that. I love that. Martha and I went through a little editing thing the other day and she changed that and she put that in there and I’ve loved that, because that is evocative of exactly of what it is. I just see this flurry of things flying around a room. And that’s, that’s about it.

So it’s not personal. That, that hatred is pointing at the One we love, the One who called us, who saved us, who keeps us, who holds us. That hatred is pointed at Him. And, you know… And I don’t know, that makes it almost an honor to take it, you know? I mean, it’s not purposeless. You know, that, that bullet was intended for my first love. I don’t know. There’s something about that that just, it makes it eternal to me. That’s a bullet I’m, I’m honored to take somehow. And that helps take the sting out of it.

John:
Well, pain with purpose is easier to endure and to go through. I mean, if you’re just pain for pain’s sake, that’s relentless and it’s awful. But if you know that there’s an eternal value, if you know that there’s a, there’s fruit behind this, then somehow it gives it, it gives it power to do it, to go through it, to experience it.

Jennifer:
Exactly!

Martha:
To overcome! (Laughs)

Jennifer:
(Laughing) Yeah, that’s it. So, perfectly in line with that too, here’s another quote:

“Satan has sent one bombardment after another against me personally and also against Shulamite’s purpose of love. He has attacked and attacked but why? What is Satan after when he bombards me with hate? What the enemy wanted was for me to abandon love.”

And that is it exactly. That is the profoundness of it. When the bullets are flying and we’re taking bullets, the goal of those bullets is to kill us…but to kill us in a specific way. It’s to kill us by making us leave the only safety there is on this earth. That’s what’s so shocking to me. And we’ll do it! I have done it many times in my life because I am a dumb sheep and there was a place where I, it seemed like that was the stronger stand. “You want to hate me? Fine! I’m going to hate you, too, and I’m going to hate you better! (Laughs) I’m so sorry. That’s so terrible but that, that was what I felt. That was what I did, you know?

Martha:
It’s human. Jennifer, if we’re honest we all experience that.

Jennifer:
Yeah. It was very powerful. And love… And again, part of that is the presentation of what we see of love. It doesn’t have too much in the way of muscle mass. But that’s not real love. And the more I learn of real love – which is to say “God,” right? – hate seems so petty and weak compared to that, you know? It’s, it’s a house of cards. It is a house of cards. And I learned that from watching Martha, from watching John, from walking through my own life and from following the Spirit even when I was saying, “Well, I’m going to do it but I’ll be honest, I don’t see it working.” You know? And He doesn’t care if I see it working or not (laughing). That’s what’s so great. I sometimes wonder – it’s embarrassing – people talk about a cloud of witnesses. They also talk about it so joyously, like it’s this glorious thing. For me I, I am constantly joking that it just seems like an eternal audience of great humiliation, you know? Like I sometimes wonder if they get together for “Look! She just said something else. Wait, rewind that! That was hilarious!” You know? Which I don’t mind, you know? If my only contribution to the eternal tapestry is in the blooper tape, I’ll take it.

But it’s, it’s never hate that comes out and is the, the winner in every respect. Whenever the Lord asks me to go another way, it’s amazing to me all the doors that open, all the things that suddenly come into play that I didn’t even see. That’s what love does. Love is multiplication. It’s not just a saying. You literally suddenly have all these paths opened up. And I think that they’re not just opened up for us. They are opened up for the people we’re loving, you know? People that were trapped and had no way out and suddenly there’s an open door where there wasn’t before, that’s what love does.

And this booklet, you know, it is just a tour de force against the satanic agenda of not only hating – that’s, that’s its basic – but getting us to abandon love and join it in the hate and becoming eternally useless. And that’s, that’s what it is. Purposeless! If we join hate on hate’s ground, we’ve left the only purpose there is. We’ve left the only safety there is. We’re left the only meaning there is in the universe. And that makes me mad. And it should. It should make me mad. That is a point where I, I can get hot and be happy to get hot. Not in hatred, but in absolute determination to do the opposite and, and to hold fast to what I know to be true and to ask Him to, to close each one of the doors that I’ve opened in my life to that hate, which is also discipleship, isn’t it? That’s very practical. That’s also kind of in here, too, ladies and gentlemen. Overcoming Self-hatred on sale soon (NOW)!

Or open the door? What did you say?

Martha:
How to open the door.

Jennifer:
How to open the door, yes. In here it’s, it’s, there’s a lot of clarity on how we open the door, how we do that. And how we close the door!

Special Guest: Jennifer Wentzel
Martha’s forthcoming booklet, Overcoming Self-hatred, will be addressing a much deeper issue – and one with far more serious consequences – than we know.

John:
Well, today we come to you and we’re real excited about a new project and a new booklet that is, that is being released. Jennifer’s been working on it and she was asking me if we had gone over, on the Podcast, kinda the vision I’m having for the booklets that are being release on Kindle. And I’m just going to, you know, say it again. My vision here is to recapture the messages, a number of the messages that were originally CD’s of the Month. And then we wanted to turn them into booklets and we’re, at, at the very outset we’re going to release these booklets on Kindle. And they will be .99 and you can get those and enjoy them.

The messages are absolutely amazing. The first one we released was Overcoming Fear and this next one is Overcoming Self-hatred. And Jennifer and I prayed about it and we’ve asked if we needed to do an overcoming series, and there’s been just several that have popped up that really kind of lend itself to that vein of teaching. And so we’ve got Overcoming Fear, Overcoming Self-hatred and, you know, it looks like the next one would possibly be Overcoming Shame. I would love to do one on rejection.

But anyway, we’re just gonna kinda start hitting all these amazing topics and how to be an overcomer in these topics. So the newest one is Overcoming Self-hatred and Martha has a whole message to speak about today about that because it’s more common than we would give it credit for. And I really wanted to get Jennifer in here, too.

And so I do want, I do want on the outset though to tell you that I’m very, very grateful for all those that have answered the call to pray and that are, that wanted to be updated. You know, a couple of podcasts ago we, we had mentioned that and we said, “Does anybody want to be on a prayer list where we’re updating you on what’s going on in the ministry and submitting to you prayer requests for y’all to stand with us that Christ would reveal Himself through this ministry?”

And even in GetAlongWithGod.com, the blogs, we’ve talked about the prayer and how, what the benefit of that, that it is to stand in prayer for this ministry and what prayer does for us when we actually stand there.

So another one of the booklets that we’ve mentioned, you know, a couple podcasts ago was the, my testimony, the Where Are You God. So we’re just working to get these Kindle booklets out. Now it’s not going to stay Kindle booklet. It depends on the response and how people are responding to it and the ones that really, really, really do well on Kindle we’ll think about proceeding and making a print version. Right now we just…  Between space and resources and everything, it’s all limited. And when you put out a print booklet, it takes up a bunch of space to store it. And it costs a lot more to do it.

So anyway we’re not averse to doing print versions of the booklets but they’re all gonna be released first as Kindle booklets and then we’re going to get the kind of a barometer of the response for the messages. And so thank you for going to Kindle and going to Amazon and reading these on your PC, on your Mac, on your Droids, on your Samsung phones, on your iPhones and iPads and everything. We really appreciate it. The response to Where Are You, God? and Overcoming Fear has been pretty amazing. We’ve really been excited about that.

So, Martha, tell me about the message here that we’re releasing. All we’re doing is waiting for the cover art and we’re trying to get a release from an artist and his photography so that we can use his image on the front of it and then pretty much it’s gonna go up. So probably… We’re hoping this week that it would, would go up. So tell me what’s, what’s on your heart about this amazing booklet?

Martha:
Well, John, I think like fear, we assume fear is a natural thing. We don’t fight it. The same thing is true of self-hatred. God had to tell me that I hated myself. When I was in my twenties that was one of His first lessons for me, that He called us to love ourself and to love your neighbor as you love yourself.

But we have a huge epidemic today, health crises, that I believe have the roots in self-hatred. That autoimmune diseases… I’m not saying as a blanket statement, but it’s pretty commonly known that your body turns on itself. And I have a sweet young friend who discovered she had self-hatred because she would shake her fist in the air at herself (laughs). And she said, “Oh, my goodness, I have self-hatred.

So it’s common to most people. The opposite of it would be pride. But it’s… Self-hatred produces a lot of things in the body that are destructive. And the thing about self-hatred is that it is evoked by the enemy. It is provoked, it is suggested, it is tempted by the enemy because the enemy is hate. Satan is hatred. That is his nature and he hates love and he hates God who is love.

So, actually the war… I believe if you could identify the one element of war, whether it be military or spiritual, the issue is hate. The root of war is hate. And the root of conflict is hate.

And the other thing I wanted to say – and I’m gonna get Jennifer to tell us some insights because she’s done a beautiful job on this manuscript – but I realize for some years now I’ve been interested in the seven churches of Revelation because they are all a challenge to overcome. And I saw that every situation we’re in, God wants us to win and overcome and most of the time it’s overcoming your own self. And my daughter will often say to me, we’ll talk about some situation and she’ll say, “But, Mom, you have overcome that so you have authority over it.” And that’s true! When you… To rule and reign, you have to learn to overcome in life and we don’t want to do that work. We don’t want to do that, face that. But self-hatred is to be overcome, because it is anti Christ. It is self-destructive. It is sin.

I’m going to let Jennifer read one of her favorite parts of it and she’s deeply familiar with it always and can tell the sequence and so forth in tremendous brilliance. She handles the writing and edits. She’s a dream. So, Jennifer, over to you.

Jennifer:
Well, I’m gonna piggy-back off what Martha was just talking about, which is that Satan is the instigator of self-hatred. And that I remember when Martha recorded the original message, Overcoming Self-hatred, and I remember being blown away by that revelation. It shouldn’t have been but it was. I just, I had never seen before so clearly and it, it put it in a different perspective for me that I needed. Because I didn’t think there was any way I could deal with self-hatred without kind of being self-conscious and introspective and on me. And that’s really dangerous ground (laughs), you know? For me anyway! It’s, it can go so badly wrong, so easily.

And when she said that, it was like I had the ability to see myself a little more clearly in terms of spiritual warfare. And when I side with Satan against God – which is exactly what that is… When I say, “You know what, you’ve got a good point there, devil. You’re speaking some serious truth words there and I agree. I’m, I’m the worst. I’m awful! Everything about me deserves to be cursed.” I’m just a pawn for him. I cease to be an actual player in the tapestry of eternity. I lose my position. I don’t lose it in the sense that, you know, it’s taken. I literally surrender it to Satan. I’ve submitted to him. I’m on his ground and I’m no longer in the fight.

And it gave me a place of repentance and seeing in self-hatred, where I didn’t have to be on me. Where I could literally repent for disloyalty to God, for unbelief, for faithlessness, for my own hatred. I— That was a ground that I could, that I could grasp.

And, and that’s why this was, this booklet, creating a booklet from that recording was incredibly important to me. Because there’s a lot in this that we think we know simply from the term and it’s not… There are deep waters here. It’s not a, a simple, shallow concept to just grab and say, “Right! No hate myself. Bad, bad!” If that’s, if that’s as far as you can go, that still has merit. But there’s a, there’s a lot on the line here. And as a disciple, which is what I view this series of booklets on overcomings, as these are, these are lessons in practical discipleship. This is what spiritual growth is. This is what it is to come to know Christ in all reality. These are obstacles to knowing and loving Him every day. And we don’t always see them. So these are, these are big-ticket items. And we think we know all there is to know about fear and shame and guilt and rejection and self-hatred and all these things but the truth is we don’t. There are, there are deep waters at work here and lots of obstacles. So that was, that was behind a lot of my passion for working on this.

Martha’s forthcoming booklet, Overcoming Self-hatred, will be addressing a much deeper issue – and one with far more serious consequences – than most of us even suspect. Self-hatred is not just some common tendency to be hard on yourself; it’s a dangerous sin.

This is the continuation of a series of Podcasts started in Episode #621.
Have you seen the power of prophetic prayer? Praying in the Spirit’s passion for His faithful people brings heaven to earth—a house, a healing, even a plane!

John:
It was like when you put your feet down on, on the earth in a particular place that He’s telling you to, it’s like He’s, He’s proclaiming His Lordship over that area and that’s, that’s what we’ve seen.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
And I, you know, it’s not like I just, I can go stomp around anywhere want to.

Martha:
Right.

John:
You know, you have to, you have to follow the Spirit and you have to go with the leading of the Spirit. But when, when He does lead you, the power’s there whether you see it or not.

Martha:
Um hmm. It’s about… You’re right, John. Thank you for that. It’s about the ownership of Christ, the claim of Christ, the dominion of Christ; that we are to be vessels of that dominion, not, not the name-it-claim-it.

John:
Well, you know something? I’ll, I’ll never get over it. You, you… Between the praising the promise, which is what I brought in the last one and, and what you taught in The Power of Prayer and the Experiencing the Depths of the Lord’s Prayer, both of those messages, what you brought, one of the things that just, just impacted me so greatly is that you’re, you’re praying by seeing. You’re fellowshipping with Christ and you’re fellowshipping with, with Him in the heavens and He shows you what’s in heaven and you’re praying to bring that down to earth. And it’s not like you’re seeing what’s on earth and you’re casting it up to heaven so that it will be, you know, better or changed or whatever. You’re literally seeing what is already done in heaven and bringing it down to earth.

Martha:
And it, it’s a willingness to take some strange directions, isn’t it? I think of an episode I’ve, I told on the, the tapes about prayer. I think it was the Lord’s Prayer series. But I’ve never told it out on a podcast, this story.

I have friends, a family, and father and mother that are dear friends. And he, his business is over long distances so he does it by private, by his own airplane. And he bought this very special airplane, small airplane; very unique airplane. And then they decided to give it to a mission. And they said to the mission, “Don’t ever sell this. If you want, if you want to sell it, we’ll buy it back from you because it is practically one of a kind.” And then they learned that the mission had sold the plane and never contacted them. And they were… It was very difficult to accept it.

And somehow the Lord put that on my heart. And I said, “Lord, I want You to give him a plane even more special.” I don’t understand all the small plane data so I can’t tell you what was what. But I said, “Lord, give him a plane….” That was so generous of them. It was a huge gift to a mission. “And so I, they gave their plane away and I want You to give them back a plane that’s better than that one.” And I never told them I was praying that but it was a passion of my heart. I knew this man was not frivolous. He was, his plane was a working plane. It was his airborne truck and he needed it in order to have efficiency and his time. The distances were just too long to drive. So I was, I had a real passion in my heart about it.

And one day she, this friend, called me and she said, “I just want to tell you about the airplane that my husband has found.” And she went into detail about how special it was and that it was, that he decided to go ahead and buy it and it was being, you know, serviced and so forth for him to come and pick it up. I went, “Oh God, You really did hear me and You really did want it for him.” It was His Spirit in me. There are a lot of things I could have prayed but that’s what the Lord gave me to pray about. That’s what He gave my spirit a passion for. And so they, they, this plane, they got it and it was far better and more unique and more special and a better bargain than the one they gave away.

John:
You saw what was in heaven.

Martha:
I did, I saw, I saw the plane. I didn’t see it, you know, in detail. But I knew that God wanted to give them a plane. So it’s a great adventure to go that way, great adventure. To say, “Ok, what’s in heaven that You want to bring down to earth?”

John:
That’s, and it’s relational. That’s, it makes it so much more relational than to tell God. I’m not going, I’m not telling God anything, you know? That just frustrates me. Just, it, it leads to frustration. But if I am in relationship with Him and I’m seeing what He’s doing and what He’s saying and what He’s wanting to do and bring to earth that’s, that’s…it’s relational.

Martha:
Um hmm. You always… That is your foundation, John. And you never move from it. It so impresses me because it is about relationship with the Lord. It’s not about knowledge about Him. It’s not about taking principals and working them. No. Both of these books that I’ve, that I have liked and especially the one on The Attack Lambs is that it is, it is relational and without that relationship you can’t bring heaven to earth. You can’t be an instrument of that.

I thought of another one. Oh, I laughed and told friends, “It’s real scary when you tell people something prophetic and they’re gonna act on it.” It’s a little scary. Please wait!

And one day I was with Jennifer’s parents, Dave and Joan, in my driveway. And I just said… I looked up at the property across the street. It was for sale. And I said to them, “I see you living across the street and I see you building a house up on the side of the mountain there.” And I just was speaking what I saw. Well, they began to move on it and God began to supply in the most amazing ways. Just a small detail—I’ll tell it quickly. They received some many thousands of dollars worth of new but used windows for the house to be built, etc., etc. And the circumstances worked out so that they did began to build across the street and by, by a year, after a year they are living there.

John:
Exactly where you saw.

Martha:
Exactly what I saw, in the exact spot I saw. And I laughed and told them the other day, “That, that scares me! I want to be really careful I’m hearing.” Because it could be bad to pronounce something and people believe. But they, they… I told them they had to have it affirmed in their heart and they did. They weren’t depending on me. They very much knew that it was God’s guidance.

John:
It bore witness with them.

Martha:
Um hmm. It did! And with all of us. So we have these dear precious friends here now and we’re having such a wonderful time in the Lord. So they belonged here. And that was how God did it.

So I’m very grateful how people endure with me and with us because I can say things sometimes that are very easily misunderstood. But we have wonderful followers with the integrity of Christ and I think they give us enormous grace. And I want to say that on the podcast that I’m aware that people bear with us as we stumble along and we go from one direction to another and it seems like…but it’s just, it’s just like Jesus traveled. This way and back that way. And that’s kind of how we do, too. That’s kind of how He leads. But I’m grateful for the, the patience that people have with us. So I thank you and God bless you all who listen. We don’t even know who does but I bless you in Jesus’ name.

John:
I thank You for everybody that has said that they would pray and that has started to get the updates. I’m just really so grateful for you. And I’ve enjoyed your letters and your scriptures and your prayers and how you’ve, you know, conveyed that to me; and your encouragement. The encouragement that has come from y’all is just amazing. And I’m so grateful for that. And I really, I’m just praying for more people that want to be a part of that and want to hear updates of what’s going on and what the Lord is doing. So bless you, thank you and I appreciate you listening and I hope this has been enjoyable to hear. God bless!

This is the continuation of a series of Podcasts started in Episode #621.
Have you ever given Jesus your feet so that He can walk in Lordship and victory, claiming the ground beneath Him for His Father’s purpose and sovereignty?

Martha:
The Attack Lions…

John:
Lambs.

Martha:
The Attack Lambs… I keep thinking it’s the lion. The Lion is the one, the one that does warfare. And the Lamb is the nature of the Lord.

But Mark Geppert went to China. I’ll tell you this one story and won’t spoil the whole book. There are too many wonderful stories. He went to the border between Korea and China and the guard said, “What are you doing here?” And they said, “We want to pray for China.” And he said, “Would you like to come in through the gates into China?” They said, “We don’t have any papers.” And the guard said, “That’s ok. I’m going to let you in but be sure you come back.” And as they stood there, Mark Geppert was praying for a word, the, praying for the prayer to pray. And this strange prayer came, “Tie the python to the tree.” Which at least the word ‘python’ to me is a, gives me a horrible picture of what a python is. It’s the most gigantic, horrible snake. So they go in and they pray in front of this village. And they look and see there is a huge twelve-foot python tied to a tree. And so they finish praying. They go back to the border and the guard is glad that they came back. And he, Mark Geppert says to the guard, “Do you tie the pythons to trees here?” And the guard said, “I’ve never heard such a thing. When we see a python, we kill it to eat it.”

But what it was, was God was demonstrating the victory over Satan before they even began to pray. And that’s their pattern. The victory of Jesus comes first. Worship comes first. Hearing the prayer of the Holy Spirit and then you go in. And they got two hundred responses from that village that people were born again in China.

So it’s full of… That’s the kind of prayer I want. It reminded me of the time that you said to me, “I want to get your feet into the UN.” I know we’ve told this story before. But we told it recently and some people had not heard it. So you want to tell that story?

John:
Well, we were in New York City. We had… Actually we were going to a trip, a ministry trip over to Ireland and we got stunk in NY. The plane… Basically we didn’t make the connection and the next flight going out was not until the following day.

Martha:
Weather in Atlanta delayed our flight. And we missed the Ireland flight and it was God.

John:
And it was God! We were, you know, we were able to basically to meet with some lovely people. But one of the other things we were able to do is we were able to get over there to the UN. And I felt like, that the Lord was saying, “Let’s go over to the UN.” So I wanted… I got you over there and I just wanted you to get your feet on the ground of the UN because I know that…

Martha:
You told me before that, John. You said, “What is the name Boutros Boutros-Ghali?” And I said, “I think that’s the UN.” John said, “I’ve never heard that but I heard it in the night.” Boutros Boutros… You say it, John.

John:
Boutros Boutros-Ghali.

Martha:
(Laughs) And so we discovered that he was the head of the UN at that time. And you kept saying to me, “I want to get your feet into the UN.” And I kept thinking, “Your feet are as good as my feet!” But you, you were determined to do that so we got on a bus and got there – or a cab.

John:
We got over there to the UN and we went in and we started walking around. And I just wanted… Literally I didn’t care. I wasn’t there to, to, you know, hold up a sign. I wasn’t there to meet anybody. I wasn’t… I literally just wanted your feet there. I wanted to displace with, with God’s vessel. If I am the vessel of Christ and Christ indwells me, where I put my feet Christ dwells. And so I wanted…

Martha:
And rules!

John:
And rules. Absolutely! So I wanted to get your feet in there. And, and at the time it wasn’t about getting my feet in there. It was about getting your feet in there. So I said, “Ok, that’s what I will do.” So we went in and were wandering around and we, we ended up, we went into the main hall and, and there, I don’t even know how we got in there because there was, there was no tour. We didn’t take a tour. We just started wandering around.

Martha:
I remember part of it, John. We stopped at a restaurant that was called The Members Restaurant and we asked the person, “Where do we eat?” No? That’s not what it was?

John:
It was the Delegate’s Restaurant, Delegates Dining Room.

Martha:
We stopped at the Delegate’s Dining Room and, and John said, “Where can we eat?” And they said, “Well, would you like to eat in here?” And John said, “Well, we’re not a delegate.” And they said, “Oh, come on in. You can eat with us this time.” So we did go in and eat in the Delegate’s Dining Room. And we saw many famous people. And… So then we went on about our way and we went to the place where the huge meetings that you see on TV are. And… But I, I was a little bewildered by it. I just kept saying, “Well, this is what Abraham did.” God said, “Put your feet on the land.” And I think He said the same to Joshua. And so it had a Biblical precedent. And I, I, but I, so I, I declared it as we went along. “I’m putting my feet here for Jesus.” So then we went on our trip. But here’s what happened after we left. You want to tell it?

John:
Well, between Boutros Boutros-Ghali and Kofi Annan, the, the exposure of, of the UN happened shortly thereafter. And…

Martha:
It was monetary exposure, wasn’t it?

John:
Yeah. There was fraud and stuff like that.

Martha:
And didn’t Boutros Boutros-Ghali resign?

John:
And, and so did Kofi Annan.

Martha:
Kofi Annan? So I want more of that, Lord. I want more ruling and reigning in Your name over whatever.

John:
That was a bit of an attack lamb kind of thing. That was a, that was a secret squirrel kind of mission and we, we literally got in there and, you know, I don’t remember exactly how all of it, it was a number of years ago but it was… I don’t remember how it all laid out and, and, but I kept on hearing Boutros Boutros-Ghali. But I don’t even remember if Boutros Boutros-Ghali was the head at that time or if Kofi Annan was the head but it was like He was putting… I, I don’t understand it. I don’t have to understand it. That’s the whole point. I knew that I had to get your feet in, in the UN.

Martha:
I’m thinking… I haven’t thought of this for a while because it was several years back but when we wanted to have a, a mission in Honduras, the missionaries found this farm that they wanted that they thought was, the Lord was gonna give it to them. And they asked the owner and the owner said, “No, I’ll never sell it.”

But they, when we arrived, they, I remember they put us in the truck and we drove to the site of it and we were gonna just get out and stand. And I turned in the truck to put my foot on the ground and the Lord said, “This belongs to Jesus.” And so when my foot hit the ground it was declaring that this belonged to Jesus. Well, in a short time the farm was gonna be sold and the owner called the missionaries and said, “We’re gonna sell it and sell it only to you.” So a miracle happened there.

John:
It was like when you put your feet down on, on the earth in a particular place that He’s telling you to, it’s like He’s, He’s proclaiming His Lordship over that area and that’s, that’s what we’ve seen.

Martha:
Uh-huh.

John:
And I, you know, it’s not like I just, I can go stomp around anywhere I want to.

Martha:
Right.

John:
You know, you have to, you have to follow the Spirit and you have to go with the leading of the Spirit. But when, when He does lead you, the power’s there whether you see it or not.

Martha:
Uh-huh. And the way you, you got this property of eight choice acres in the mountains was this is what you wanted. This is what the Lord told you. And you would have settled for a whole lot less. And the story, that’s another story of kind of setting your feet in the right place for the Lord. And He will tell you the wrong place. And so the Lord arranged to let you buy this property and on very fair terms and very good agreement. So the Lord let your feet touch this land and claim it for Him. And this has truly been a mountain where the Lord lives and manifests Himself.

John:
It’s odd, everybody that I’ve ever told where we live they said, “Oh, that’s God’s country.” I’m like going, “You don’t know how true that is.”

Martha: (Laughs)

With Martha Kilpatrick and hosted by John Enslow

This is the continuation of a series of Podcasts started in Episode #621.
Having just published John Enslow’s Where Are You, God? on Kindle, the Shulamites’ prayer needs for upcoming books and ongoing fruit have never been higher.

Martha:
We have a new recent addition to our books and that is John’s. Where Are You, God? is the title of his testimony and I’ve richly endorsed it. And my own experience of it is just to weep over it and I wrote a small introduction to the book about John, too. And you will find it… Tell us where we can get it, John.

John:
It’s a, it’s a Kindle only book right now and you can get it, Where Are You, God?, at Amazon, on Kindle and, you know, I’ve always said this but it can be said again. You can read Kindle on any device and, you know, basically your Mac, Your PC, your, your iPhone, your android phone, any kind of device. They’re trying to make—or Kindle device. They’re trying to make all their content accessible to everyone. So if you have a device it’s probably got a Kindle app that you can read these books. And it’s only 99 cents.

And it’s… I’ve gotten a bunch of feedback on it and people are really loving it. And I’ve said – and I don’t do this with pride or arrogance about this – I believe it’s the best autobiography/biography I’ve ever read. I do believe it’s the best because, and I can say that will all honesty and I can say that with humility, because it’s not about me.

Martha:
And that’s the wonder of it. But this book presents a hunger for God in a way that I have never read about. And it has caused me to bow down and ask for the hunger to experience God that you had in your life because He is, He met that hunger. He met that cry of your heart to— I want so much, because the Scripture is full of it, to experience the love of God, to experience the person of God. If you’ve got an experience of God, you, that can’t be taken from you. And that’s what you’re demonstrating. It’s what you’re… You’re laying out a pathway to the experience of God and it leaves you so hungry for an unusual encounter because God is so huge. He gave you such huge, outlandish, unusual experiences with Him. He appeared in places that are totally unique.

John:
And I believe He wants to do that with everybody and every…

Martha:
I do too, John.

John:
Yeah.

Martha:
And I long for it for everybody.

John:
And really, you know, I look at it and I say the passion I had and the desire I had wasn’t mine. Really! It was given to me but it wasn’t mine. I, I… It’s not like I, I was a prodigy or anything like that. I literally was given something to give back to God. And I think all of us have that.

Martha:
But you didn’t know it for decades.

John:
No and that’s why Where Are You, God. There was a whole bunch of “Where are You, God?”

Martha:
Yeah, but He was there in ways that you didn’t, you couldn’t see and couldn’t respond to and couldn’t appreciate. But then when He puts it all together and He begins to move in your life, it is one of the most phenomenal testimonies that I’ve ever heard, truly. So it’s, it’s a joy for us to get it out there and put it in such an accessible, available form. It’s worth far more than 99 cents I can tell you (laughs). I wish I could give it out copies just on paper. But we’re every excited about this and other people are amazed by it, John, aren’t they?

John:
They really are.

Martha:
And we don’t get into it much but the response has been incredible. Many people have said they wept over it.

John:
And between that and the, the Overcoming Fear that came out… And then, and then Jennifer is currently working on Overcoming Self-Hatred, which is absolutely an awesome booklet. We’re, I’m hoping that she’s gonna be doing the whole Overcoming series and we’ve just got so much coming out and so much gonna be released and we, we need, we need prayer. We need… And I do want to say, that we asked for prayer and people did respond. I’ve got a number of people that responded and said, “Please put me on your prayer list.” I’m asking for more. I really… We need a base, an army base of those that are praying to see these messages get into the hands of, of people. And I want them connected to the people that are hungry, open, and ready to receive them. You know, that’s, that’s been my, my cry for this whole thing.

So thank you for those that have responded and if you haven’t responded, and you would like to be put on the updates where I’m, I’m literally writing letters and notes and updating people on what’s going on. I would like to do it more. I would like this, you know, have it be a little personal, too. We’re saying, “Hey, you know, we’re struggling with this,” and, and, you know, and receive the words and receive the scriptures that are coming back. You know, this, this place is a place of really great, great fruit. The Lord is got fruit and we need, we need help. We need help.

Martha:
And we have them. We have the help. When, some years ago when I knew I was supposed to speak about the Lamb of God, I wrote a number of people and asked that they be committed to fast and pray for me while I was writing it. I think it was some forty-five answered. And what they did was phenomenal. They did the Daniel fast of three weeks with vegetables only. And the phenomena that happened was the appearance of the Lamb to me in my hotel room. And then the conference came of that. And some day there’ll be a book of that story.

And I’m going to be, I’m heading toward writing The Bride is Ready, which is all the scriptural pictures of the readiness of the Bride. And I’m getting well enough now, and my health is improving drastically and so I’m gonna be ready to start on that soon. I hope at least in November is when we’re going?

John:
Yeah, yeah we’re looking to do a trip in November and you’re going to be writing that and I’m going to be writing the exchanged life book.

Martha:
So we’re just anxious to get these things out to you because we, we live with them and we share them. And we, we know that God is using and giving these subjects; He’s giving these. I don’t have any hesitation to say that God has called us to publish, to write and publish His testimony in the end days and, and He is doing it for us, through us, and in us. So…

John:
So go back to the things that Dick Eastman was telling. You gave… The first one was the…

Martha:
The workers.

John:
…to pray for the workers. The second was to have the open doors. What was the third and the fourth?

Martha:
The third one is fruit. And I’ve got from Billy Graham’s ministry and Dick Eastman’s ministry, I got such a hunger to give fruit to the Lord, for there to be fruit born. And so that’s the third prayer is that there would be fruit.

The fourth one is provision; that we’d have, that we would have the financial, practical provision. Right now we need a storage place for books real, really bad. My basement has served as the storage area and is about to be full of books that we carry on LivingChristianBooks.com. We carry wonderful books. I walked through the office looking at the titles and I’m just amazed what rich books. I’m reading a couple of things by Andrew Murray right now. One of them is The Spirit of Christ. The other… They are little booklets you can carry with you. And the, the other one is Waiting on God. And it… One of the things it says there is, “The essence of faith is waiting on God.”

John:
Waiting on God is such a deep, deep well. A deep, deep, deep well.

Martha:
It really is. And it’s been my call for the last couple of months to wait on the Lord and you’ll mount up with wings of an eagle and you’ll run and not be weary, and you’ll walk and not stumble. So I’m, I’m really into Waiting on God, and doing it myself. There is no wasted time that waits on the Lord.

Episode #621
10-28-2018

With Martha Kilpatrick and hosted by John Enslow

The Lord continues to unfold new and deeper revelation on the role of prayer in powering a ministry and in manifesting God’s will for that very ministry.

John:
Well today we’re coming and it’s fall in the air and it’s really nice. It’s nice and crisp. You know that feeling when you bite into an apple and it’s got that crisp pop and snap and it’s cold and it’s nice? Well, that’s kinda how the air feels today. It’s crisp and it’s clean and it’s clear looking. The sky is perfectly blue. There’s none of that kinda haze from heat. And so after a long summer that’s been hot and wet we’re very much looking forward to this. The leaves are changing and it’s really wonderful. And, and you were doing some pretty amazing things over there in the, in your a little fireplace. What were you doing?

Martha:
(Laughs) What I was enjoying was the first fire of the season. And I forget how much I love a cold day and a warm fire and to sit by it. And two of us came to pray and we had a marvelous morning of prayer.

But I wanted to talk about something first, John. It’s real dangerous to be spontaneous in speaking about the things of the Lord because you find yourself sometimes chewing on your own shoe leather with your foot in your mouth. And so I wanted to correct something or expand on something I said last week. I said that we aren’t praying. But I was referring to the ministry, praying for the ministry because we pray for others who write. We pray for each other in this body. We pray for those who write to us. So it wasn’t as if we were without any prayers. It sounded like we don’t pray.

John:
And we’re very much into prayer. We’re praying all the time.

Martha:
Yeah. And we spent, three of us spent hours this morning praying. And I thought it was eleven o’clock and it was one something. So I did want to correct that.

But what I meant was we don’t pray enough for the ministry. And so I had a reason for mentioning that because I want to ask… What I’ve wanted to ask for some time is will people who listen to us and find the presence of Christ with us and the word of His revelation, would you be committed to pray? I know there are many people that pray for us. They tell me. They tell me they pray every day and I’m blown away by that. But we need prayer for the ministry.

And I’m going to give you…there are two heroes I have and I’m so sorry. I apologize. You’re going to hear about those anytime I speak almost. Of course, one is Billy Graham. But this time it’s Dick Eastman. And I’ve told you about him. It’s Every Home for Christ. His goal was set out thirty years ago to reach every home in the world for Christ with the gospel. And he’s done it. And he’s had in some years two hundred thousand professions of salvation. So he’s…and he’s done it by prayer. He has proven the power of prayer. And I follow everything he’s in.

But I want to address also the Circle Prayer book that I mentioned (The Circle Maker). And it’s a wonderful book and I do recommend it. But please be patient with the Shulamites as we go from one thing to another and discover that Lord brings us to point A in order to get us to point M. And we go from one thing to something better. And that’s a wonderful book. I recommend it. It’s about mighty prayer and vision. But I have this dear friend, a pastor, who sends me the most wonderful books of people and he gave me a book called The Attack Lambs; very challenging title and the subtitle is Prayer that Changes the World. And the writer is Mark Geppert, G-E-P-P-E-R-T. And John will tell you where this book can be found. It’s a little bit expensive on Amazon.

But the forward is by Dick Eastman. And Dick Eastman walked with this man so he knew the power of his prayers. And basically I’ll tell you that the Circle book prayer is simply Luke 11. Luke 11 is the huge lesson on prayer. When I talked about this on the last podcast, a dear friend of mine sent me a picture of my book entitled The Secret of Answered Prayer and he said, “This is my prayer book!”

But Luke 11 is Jesus… It’s the friend awakening his friend at midnight to get bread for someone who didn’t have it. And the friend says, Luke 11:6 “Why are you bothering me? The door’s locked and we are in bed. Do you expect me to get up?” Then he says, “But listen, because of your shameless impudence, even though it’s the middle of the night, your friend will get up out of his bed and give you all that you need. So it is with your prayers. Ask and you’ll receive. Seek and you’ll discover. Knock on heaven’s door, and it will one day be open for you. Every persistent person will get what he asks for. Every persistent seeker will discover what he needs. And everyone who knocks persistently will one day find an open door.”

And I was going to my house one day and two friends were there and they said, “Martha, this is what you, the circle prayer is what you’ve done for us all the, all our lives.” So it’s just persistent prayer. Throwing prayers at situations unendingly.

But I read to you from The Passion Translation, which we’re fallen in love with, and its foot—the footnotes of it are equal to an excellent study Bible of Greek and Hebrew, isn’t it John?

John:
Absolutely! I love this book. It’s just amazing, The Passion Translation. It’s bringing a freshness to the scriptures to me and it’s not like it’s going off into weirdness and, you know, several other things that other translations… They become almost a personal doctrine rather than doctrine. And, but this is Greek and Hebrew. It’s actual. It’s just spoken in a way that and translated in a way that’s just amazing.

Martha:
It captures the passion that’s in, buried in the Hebrew and Greek languages.

John:
So it makes it a perfect name for the Bible: The Passion Translation.

Martha:
Wonderful. It’s really, really wonderful. So the book that I want to talk about today is very high and holy. It’s called Attack Lambs. And I don’t want to divulge the whole thing because it’s fantastic stories of prayer initiated by the Holy Spirit and answered by God. But it’s having the nature of a lamb but being, attacking with the word and with the victory of Jesus. And it’s more about worship and prayer, and worship before prayer. The emphasis is on worship. So this book is one that I highly recommend and I’ve given you the name and John will tell you the website to find the book.

John:
I’m hoping to be able to carry that at LivingChristianBooks.com. If we’re not, I mean, Amazon’s selling it for $50 and $60 and $80 like they do with some of their books. They’re actually are not doing it. It is actually the MarketPlace sellers that are, that are doing it. And I don’t understand why they do it that way but they do. And, but there, but this book is available and we’re going to see what we can do; if we can get it this week and get it in.

Martha:
And the forward in it, the introduction into it is by Dick Eastman. And since I’m asking today for prayer, this is how Dick Eastman taught his followers to pray for their ministry which is… If you haven’t gotten involved with Every Home for Christ, please, at least look it up. It is phenomenal; miracles they experience; the people that are willing to go out and walk in remote, remote places.

And the great commission is that every, that the gospel would cover the earth and then the Lord will return. Well, Dick Eastman is more than anyone I’ve heard about, Dick Eastman is fulfilling that. And these are the four things he, they pray for their ministry. Number one, workers for the vineyard. He said, “We are called to pray and ask for workers.” And we’re, we are beginning to see that happen with us, a bit. The second one is: Open doors. And what we, what we haven’t prayed for at Shulamite Ministries is really for the message. We’ve longed for it to go out because we believe in it. We are called to publish and distribute the testimony and we… It’s not that we don’t value what God gives us as a group.

Episode #620
10-21-2018

With Martha Kilpatrick and hosted by John Enslow

Special Guest: Jennifer Wentzel and Joan Wentzel

This is the continuation of a series of Podcasts started in Episode #618.
We are called to pray in the reality of God’s promises and provision, NOT what is happening in the world. Jesus has overcome the world and we hold to that!

Jennifer:
You’re talking about a disproportionate power to an insignificant entity and this booklet that I just finished Overcoming Fear (Soldier Without Fear is the one being turned into a booklet), you say in there when you get rid of your fear then you will see what is real. And you close on the fantastical, outlandish promises and provision of God, and that that is the reality whether we see it or not. And in that you said you have no desire – by talking about consequences of fear and who’s going to try and instill fear in you, you know, you hit on a lot of that – but you say very clearly, “This is not to evoke fear in you. I want to be the Elisha who sees what is real, who sees the armies of heaven where everyone else just sees the enemy encamped around us.”

And somehow what you’re talking about is just intersecting with that because I have been mulling that. John, do you remember that phone call I got from that guy who had the ministry to Christian metal heads?

John:
Yeah.

Jennifer:
He was in a heavy metal Christian rock band, which John and I are very well versed in. Your kids were exposed to these rock bands. But they’re pretty awesome! But he’s grown up now, had kids, all the rest of it. And he called because he just wanted to see if we were functional, if we were a ministry. He never called before. But they have a ministry to former bikers, to people that move in that kind of heavily tattooed, very hard-core crowd. And he said that for every person they bring in, and he said it’s a requirement for anyone who wants to be in any sort of leadership or missionary or discipling-someone-else situation –­ Adoration! Adoration is the book that they hold. That is their book outside of the Bible. That is the heart of their ministry, of their approach to God, everything.

But here’s my thing. The other thing is that Altogether Forgiven wasn’t, Amazon wasn’t ordering a lot of them for a long, long time. And I know John was praying about it. I know I was praying about it. It has all of a sudden started going. And this guy, we’ve never heard of him. I looked up online. I can’t find anything with the city where he said he was. I don’t know where he’s getting his copies of Adoration.

And it just occurred to me with you talking about this, that it doesn’t matter what we see or don’t see. You’re talking about a disproportionate power to an insignificant entity and what has just been phoom-phoom-phoom since you said that was…and we have no idea how much of that has already come to fruition.

There’s this ministry out there that we know nothing about, that could not be more alien from most of the groups that this ministry deals with. Ok, we mostly deal with church groups, traditional church groups, maybe some evangelicals, things like that. But it’s within the realm of norm. This is very much outside. This is a, what I’ll call a fringe ministry, because they are a very small group of people in, amongst, you know, the whole country. I mean, there can’t be more than a couple hundred thousand hard-core metal heads, all right. This is not your average thing.

We don’t know. We, we do not know what the reality is of what He’s already done. And so in addition to thanking Him for it, you know, if anything I think my prayer is not going to be “Do it,” but I’d like to have Elisha-eyes. I’d like to see it, because I think it is real. It is the reality. I just don’t have eyes it see it yet.

Joan:
I was just going to say when you were talking about the circling and the standing, Watchman Nee said somewhere that you, you wait for the promise and then you stand on the promise. And John explained to me what the standing looks like. It’s thanking, it’s praising. But I have… I remember when Julia was sick and you had sent me that, the prayers you had for Julia, one thing I prayed and I feel like it’s something that God answers because Elisha opened Gahazi – who was not a good person, he was not really with him, he was greedy – but he opened Gahazi’s eyes to see that, you know, all the armies that were, you know, surrounding. And one thing I have asked Lord was manifest Julia’s healing. “You promised, it manifest it.” I don’t know if that’s valid to ask for but if the promise is given, aren’t we just waiting for the manifestation of something?

And also I pray, I have a huge promise for the kids, all of them. And I say, “Lord, hasten Your word, hasten it, hasten it and manifest it. I want to see it.” It’s a promise and for me, what I’m, I’ve been praying to know how to praise. I’m so excited about this because I want to pray. I just don’t know what I’m doing. That’s what I said to them: “I don’t know what I’m doing but I want to do this,” while y’all were gone. So I have such a heart to pray. But to see answers is encouraging and prayer without answers just says to me, makes you, “Why are we doing this”? So answered prayer! It’s what you said in the teaching at the Methodist Church that you wanted, you wanted to talk about answered prayer, not another kind of prayer. And if it’s not answered prayer, to me, what is the point?

John:
I go back with what Jennifer was saying and praying what is real. You see what is real. You have the vision and you pray for what is real. Not for what is…

Martha:
Possible.

John:
Possible.

Martha:
You can’t pray for what’s possible. You have to pray… He, and you’ll see this in the book, he prayed for the impossible. There was no way but they kept praying anyway.

John:
So I’m kind of, you know, to pray, to pray what is real, to have the vision, and to praise for it being done in heaven. If you show me, God, something that’s in heaven, it doesn’t really matter what’s here.

Martha:
Exactly, it doesn’t matter how insignificant the entity is!

John:
No, it doesn’t matter at all. And it, it… Where’s my reality? There’s the truth. Where’s my reality? Is my reality in what He says and what He is doing and what is in heaven, or is this my reality? And this place is a place of chaos. This place is a place of confusion. This is a place of darkness.

Martha:
Speaking of the world.

John:
The world is, is all of that. This plane is that. But there, there’s something that’s so far beyond that, that supersedes it.

Martha:
I’m on this verse, “In the world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 NKJV). And I want to know what that means. I want to see that. He has overcome the world. It doesn’t matter that there’s tribulation in the world. It not the… It’s what is seen. What was the phrase that you got while we were traveling? You said don’t look at what…

John:
Oh, I got that during Julia’s sickness. “Don’t look at what’s happening. Look at what I’m doing.” And they are two totally different things.

Martha:
There’s another one close to that that you got, too. It’s written in my notes, but that’ll do.

John:
Well, that was, that was that one but, you know, I… My world is not dictated by what’s happening in this world. And my world is dictated by what God says and what God is doing. And that is ever being tested and tried but where do I live? Where’s my reality? Am I going to make my reality here on this earth or am I going to make my reality… Is my reality what is in heaven? It’s not make it! Is it? I’m born again. I’m in the heavens.

Joan:
This is Colossians 3 out of the Passion translation, starting in verse 2, “Yes, feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm. Your crucifixion with Christ has severed the tie to this life, and now your true life is hidden away in God in Christ.  And as Christ Himself is seen for who He really is, who you really are will also be revealed, for you are now one with Him in His glory!” That’s Colossians 3:2-4 in the Passion translation.

Martha:
This is a scripture that Jacquelyn got for John during our travel and I’m, I’m just, just drinking it. Psalm 45:1 in the Passion translation. “My heart is on fire, boiling over with passion. Bubbling up within me are these beautiful lyrics as a lovely poem to be sung for the King. Like a river bursting its banks, I’m overflowing with words, spilling out into this sacred story.” Isn’t that exquisite? And that’s, we… Our calling is to publish the deeds of the Lord to the next generation.

With Martha Kilpatrick and hosted by John Enslow

This is the continuation of a series of Podcasts started in Episode #618.
So God has given you a vision of revival. Now what? That’s the question that Martha and John answer out of their own lives and relationships with Jesus.

Martha:
So this pastor got the vision of praying circles around what God tells you is yours. And God would tell him outlandish things. He wanted this piece of property that was like a crack house or something like that. They wanted to make, God said, “Make a coffee house in Capitol Hill.” And he asked the price. I think it was $200— $2,000,000. And he went to the owners and he said, “I have no money, no credit. I’m a pastor and I want that piece of property and, for God.” And the owners were Jewish. I don’t remember the circumstances but he, I think it got it for $300,000 and God had to provide that $300,000 but it was not $2,000,000.

And he went issue after issue like that. That they got the last piece of available property on Capitol Hill and it was $14,000,000 for that piece of property. And everything that happened, negative and positive, was the answer to his vision; even everything that shut down. Three times someone outbid him for a piece of property. But it was God, because he needed it in a different, different situation.

So I want us to get the vision of the possibilities. And it includes praying circles around your family and around your own life. But I’m bringing it to you as a new call to prayer for us to get the vision.

John:
I think it’s interesting in another thing. We just got back from the trip that everybody sent us on and we were at a Hilton Hotel. And in this book he talks about Conrad [Hilton] and he talks about there is a spiritual heritage there that doesn’t reflect the current generation.

Martha:
Right.

John:
I, you know, the current generation… I’m going, “Oh, well, the seed must all be bad.” It’s not! It wasn’t! There… And we were in a Hilton Hotel where, and Conrad had done basically the same thing. So I don’t want to tell that story but it, it’s amazing.

Martha:
It really, he did it by prayer and his while life is… His mother’s answer to everything, everything was, “Go pray, Conrad. Go pray!” That’s the answer.

John:
And maybe that’s why the current generation has such a difficulty. It’s an assault against the, the…

Martha:
The heritage.

John:
…the heritage that was there. And maybe, hello, maybe I need to be praying for that, you know.

Martha:
Yeah.

John:
Rather than being like, “Ew, gross! I maybe need to say, “Listen, let that, let that original heritage that was in Christ come forth.

Martha:
And that same heritage of the Hebrides Revival is in Donald Trump.

John:
That’s just amazing.

Martha:
There’s some kind of unction on him because he’s the, he’s a nephew of the people that have the Hebrides Revival, which is one of the greatest stories in the world. You don’t know that story? Ok. Yeah. That revival was started by two old women, sisters. One of them was blind and the other one was crippled. They could not go to church so they had church in their home. And they began to pray for revival. And they prayed that revival in and it was an astonishing revival that went, I don’t even know how far. Their niece went to New York City and met a man named Trump, married him and their son was Donald Trump. One of their children was Donald Trump. He… and I remember him going… Early in his presidency, he went to, was it Scotland? Scotland, to the little cabin and stood in front of that little cabin. They didn’t make a big issue of it except as it was his roots. They didn’t have any spiritual or the news didn’t, but a couple on the spiritual thing. He went to that… He goes every couple of years to that little cabin and stands in front of it and does I don’t know what. But one thing we’ve learned about him is that his goal is to be the most praying president who’s ever lived.

John:
He will have to be. (laughs)

Martha:
He will have to be. And that’s one reason he’s surviving is because he is giving himself to prayer.

John:
And maybe that’s the answer to his, maybe that’s the very answer to his prayer is that, you know, you will be a praying person if you’ve got a serious burn (laughter). And he’s got a serious burn.

Martha:
Yeah.

John:
So maybe it’s God’s… That’s how God’s answering it.

Martha:
And, and I, I know that those two old women, seemingly fruitless, seemingly incapable of anything. I don’t know which one of them prayed but they prayed other prayers in. And one man went to a barn for two weeks and prayed that Duncan Campbell would come to the Hebrides Islands. Well, they were just little farm people. They were nobodies! Duncan Campbell, who was a great evangelist, was in a, probably England and God said, “Go to the Hebrides Island.” And he went, “I don’t know anybody! Why am I going there?” He got on whatever transportation and went to the Hebrides Island, got off and somebody met him and said, “You’re Duncan Campbell, aren’t you?”  And he preached and a revival broke out.

But those two women… That gave me such courage, that story, because the fruit goes on and on of prayer. My books can burn up but my prayers will live beyond me and keep reverberating. And that… I knew it when I was a young believer that the most important thing to do was pray. That was the one permanent fruit you could bear, was prayer.

You know my vision of revival. My passion is the last revival. Y’all know the vision I had in the church, and the pastor was preaching on, I think…quoted someone who said, “The reason we don’t have revival is because we don’t have mentors.” Mentoring people who mentor other, you know, other people. And I had a vision of the Untied States. I had a map of the United States and over it were like towers of different sizes and it was all the most incredible, ferocious intercession for revival. That’s… I knew that’s what I was looking at. It was everywhere, the whole United States. And when I finally took it to him, he said, “You probably don’t know, Martha, that they say that the Methodist Church is the one denomination ripe for revival because we have so many churches. We have so many buildings where revival can take place.”

So I believe that what I’ve been through in the last year is the death of a vision. And that what He’s resurrecting is through this circle of prayer. I started it with the church. I’ve looked for someone in there. I’ve looked among us for someone with the same passion for revival. Jim Pierce’s son… I told him about that. He said, “Miss Martha, that’s what we see.” He’s in a Circuit Riders Ministry where they go from campus to campus and he said, “We call them the chimneys of prayers. You’ve describes the chimneys that we’ve seen.” So that was my confirmation. That… And they are, they’re doing it with enormous effect.

So are you onboard?

With Martha Kilpatrick and hosted by John Enslow

When God gives you the vision for something, it still has to be prayed in, but what does that look like? What does it mean to pray in the promise of God?

Martha:
We’ve had a call for many years.  A lot of people have come and gone. But the call is and the promise is a disproportionate power to an insignificant entity. And we are an insignificant entity. But we have not come to the disproportionate power. John has said to me numbers of times, “We’re stuck and we’re not moving.” And I would say to him, “It because we’re not praying.” And he would go through, we’d go through and come back again and say, “We’re just not moving” and I would say, “We’re just not praying.

So I have been asking the Lord for I don’t know how long, “How is it that we as a cooperate group need to pray? And what do we need to pray and how?” And the Lord has answered me with a book. It’s called Prayer Circle or something like that. And as I read it, I realized I’ve done it a few times in my life and it has worked.

When I was in the Episcopal Church and I didn’t, we didn’t know the pastor was into mediums and later he divorced his wife and married a witch. And he was the pastor when I was being filled with the Spirit. So I knew that nobody knew the Lord there, because he wasn’t preaching Jesus. He was preaching good works. And so I prayed, “Lord,” and I prayed it a lot. I had been filled with the spirit sovereignly, individually. You know the story. I would pray, “Lord, open the heavens and pour out on this church the same, the blessing that you gave me.” The blessing was the Holy Spirit but I didn’t know the name. But that was my prayer. “Open the windows of heaven as You did for me and pour out Your blessing.”

That preacher left and another one came in who got saved and filled with the Spirit after he was ordained a long time. And he was filled with the Spirit and very quietly and wisely, he carefully began to orchestrate introducing the church to the Holy Spirit.

And so we had a layman weekend where people came and gave witness to speaking in tongues and being baptized in the Spirit. A Wednesday night group was formed that people came from all over Atlanta because there was so much going on in healings and everything and we were in such… The Holy Spirit was so moving that people learned about it. Even nuns came. And I would say, “I’m so glad you came.” And she said, “I’m so glad you came.” (chuckles) And it was a wonderful time.

Then there was the Honduras story, which I prayed, prayed the, over and over again, “Jesus is Lord.” And I prayed it over the whole valley over and over and over again. And it exposed the problems and closed down the mission and we left the mission.

But the original intent… A nun had bought that property and made it a paradise with a vision of having a retreat center for Honduran pastors and churches, because they meet wherever they can. And most of them don’t have church buildings that they own. And so that was this nun’s vision. And, and that became mine without knowing about her vision. My vision was a retreat center. Well, it has been built. So God had me circle that and fight for that retreat center and it was build by the local Hondurans and is functional. And they’ve asked me to come and do a conference there.

So there have been times that I have prayed this way. And I’m very excited because one of my mentors is Henry Gruber. And he’s the man who walks and prays. He’s walked every street in Israel. He’s walked through gunfire in Lebanon and it didn’t touch him. He has a truly miraculous life and visionary life. But he walks and prays where God tells him to go.

And that’s what I’ve done with the Methodist Church in Dahlonega. And when I lived there with Kenneth I did… Lots of times I’d go round and round that church, because I’m called there and I’ve had a vision of revival there. And that vision has died in my sickness and in my not being able to be at that church. But it is being resurrected to this level of prayer. The resurrection is, in my life, is prayer; how to pray so effectively and it’s very simple. It’s just getting the promise or the vision and you pray circles around it.

And the story… You will read the story of the man that discovered this from a legend in Jewish writings. A legend of a man who drew a circle… They had a drought in Israel, which they had often in the centuries past, and he sat down and he drew a circle around himself and he said, “I’m gong to stay here and I’m not leaving but I’m going to pray until it rains.” And he was known as the one you go to when there’s a drought because the rain happened.

And he traces… The most powerful one that I feel the Holy Spirit on is the story of Jericho. That they marched round and round in silence. And I think it was some six hundred thousand people marched around Jericho. I’m not sure. I’ve read that figure but I don’t know that it’s accurate. Anyway they walked around and around and prayed silently I think for seven days. And when they shouted the walls fell down and the city surrendered.

So that kind of prayer is our image. We’re going to be like Jericho. And we’re going to get God’s vision of what He wants—a vision of the vision.

And this man started a teeny church on Capitol Hill in Washington. From that beginning, that little beginning of maybe twelve people at the service, he has coffeehouses; he owns millions of dollars of value in property that God gave them the money for. God gave him $25,000,000 for missions. And all they do is pray circles around everything. And it’s not so much a literal circle, it’s you just stay at it. It’s a matter of persistence. You just stay at it and you keep praying and you will not give up.

John:
The thing I love about it is that the message that you gave on prayer, you gave two messages. And those two messages you and your booklets, obviously, you talk about hearing, listening, hearing and praying what you hear. It’s not about praying what you decide. It’s not praying about what you even want, really. It’s really not. It’s… You can, you can…

Martha:
It’s not what you see.

John:
Certainly not what you see, at all. But you’re literally waiting for the vision, the heavenly vision. God saying, “This is what is in heaven that I want to do on earth.” And then you stand. And the thing that shocked me so much about the message of the book that you related to me, I’ve not read the book yet, but the thing that you related to me about it is that you’re not particularly praying, “God do this, God do this, God do this, God do this.” You’re not telling God what to do. You’re praising God for He wants to do.

Martha:
Thank you, John. That’s the simple premise. I’ve heard it from three different sources. The simple thing of prayer is you get the promise and you glorify God. If you get sick and you get the promise of healing, you no longer ask for healing. You just praise Him for healing.

John:
Actually it’s anti-faith to pray for healing…

Martha:
Exactly!

John:
…when you’re sick.

Martha:
It’s unbelief.

John:
It’s unbelief. If you have a word, if you have a word for healing, and God says, “I am going to heal you.” And then you say, “God, please heal me, please heal me, please heal me.” Well, then you’re praying in…

Martha:
In unbelief.

John:
In unbelief and fear, really. And what he says and what you’ve said is that you get the thing and then you stand and then you praise God for it, you thank Him for it.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
You stand in the place of gratitude and thanks that…

Martha:
Thank you, John

John:
…He is going to do it.

Martha:
That’s the essence of it.

John:
That was the essence for me. That’s what my take-a-way. Just the gleanings. I mean really you just told me a little bit about the book. You’ve not read it. You’re read stories in there and I’ve been, you know, impacted by the stories. But the thing that really… That’s what hit me. That’s what hit me. All of a sudden I said, “Oh, my gosh! I’ve haven’t done that at all. I continually go…

Martha:
“It’s not here. It’s not here, so…”

John:
“God please do this, God please do this.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
And really that makes a relationship with yourself rather than a relationship with God. If you have to hear what God does and says, that’s a relationship. It’s relational. You’re listening to Him and then you’re thanking Him for it. You’re saying, “Thank You! I am thanking You ahead of seeing it.” Which is faith is the evidence of…

Martha:
Things not seen.

John:
Not seen. And so that, that’s so huge to me. So that I can say, “Ok, this is— God, this is what You have, You have said in my heart. This is what You’ve said would, would transpire here.” Even on the podcast that went out today I’ve, I’ve been asking people, “Hey, would you please pray that the floodgates would open. There’s a veil on the floodgates.” Maybe the veil is the fact that it needs to be pierced with thanks. I don’t do that. I say, “God, please, PLEASE do this.” He’s already told me He wants to do this. “Thank You, God, You’re doing it. Thank you, God, You’re doing it.”

Martha:
Um hmm. And see the books that we have, we need to go and pray and pray that there will be open doors to the books. That they will go out. Not, it’s not that the books would sell. It’s that the message would get out.

And even the man who’s so becoming so famous, as the expert on prayer ­– his name is Erwin something – he prayed for Billy Graham’s crusades. He’s the one, he’s the one that got Billy Graham. Now there were other men. There were other visions but he’s the one who prayed. And someone said to him, “Erwin, what’s the secret of prayer?” “Get the promise and plead the promise,” he said. “Get the promise and plead the promise.”

Well, I think we have many promises that I’ve just probably lost. But the one we have is a disproportionate power to an insignificant entity. So we’re going to pray for the disproportionate power to be ours.

John:
Ok. We’re not going to pray for it.

Martha:
Ok.

John:
We’re going to thank God that He’s given us the…

Martha:
The disproportionate power.

John:
…disproportionate power. We have it. He’s done that for, for almost…

Martha:
I see.

John:
The entire. It’s the way we think.

Martha:
Yes, thank you! Everybody correct everybody that does what I just did! (laughter) “We’ve got to pray for this!”

John:
No, we don’t have to pray for it. He has told us almost the entire time, if not the entire time that I’ve been here, that that was the reality.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
But I’ve never thanked God for that reality.

Martha:
Me neither.

John:
I’ve never said, “God, thank You that You choose to do it through a insignificant entity and that You are giving us, that You have given us…” See, it’s hard!

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
“…that You have given us the disproportionate power.” And another thing that he (Batterson) kind of goes back over and over through the book he says, “Listen, this isn’t the ‘name it – claim it’ thing.”

Martha:
Yes. Right.

John:
You know, I’m…

Martha:
You don’t decide.

John:
I’m so resistant against that.

Martha:
Yeah.

John:
I think, it’s repulsive because it does it without God.

Martha:
Um hmm.

John:
But he, he…

Martha:
It makes yourself god.

John:
It makes yourself god.

Martha:
And the “name it, claim it” is I decide what I want and I decide God’s going to give it to me.

John:
That’s right.

Martha:
And that’s not the way it works.

John:
That’s not it at all.

Martha:
It’s not what it… And I’m glad he put that in there!
