Preparing for the Glory by John and Carol Arnott

Preparing for the Glory by John & Carol Arnott

This weekend I have been going to the meetings in Tulsa with John Arnott. He is an amazing teacher and full of the Holy Spirit. What is wonderful about his ministry is the depth of his experience (involved in the Toronto Blessing outpouring in 1994) but not to leave it there pressing on for More! He breathes Fire on the people as he prays for them and teaches us that we as believers can do the same for/with others. As the body prayed for me this weekend, I believe I gained more healing and grew about an inch in stature (more to go). I am more than ever convinced YHWH has full restoration for me and am asking that others join with me in prayer for myself and all who need healing, baptism, salvation, and deliverance among us. It is our Father’s great pleasure to do so for His children and for unbelievers as well as a sign to them of His love and power.

Getting Ready for the Next Wave of Holy Spirit Outpouring

There is one more meeting in Tulsa tonight. If you can get there – be there! If you cannot be there in person, read the book. It is available at the meetings and on Amazon linked to picture of book above.

His Breath is the Wind to my Sails

His breath is wind to my sails via Patty Finney Compton on fb

A friend of mine on facebook, Patti Finney Compton, shares the most glorious pictures there. She opens her heart and always has a word of encouragement for those who respond to her. This one caught my eye recently and I asked and received her permission to share.  Her pictures seem to penetrate the soul and lift the spirit.  I think that is because she prays over them and God leads her to them and guides her hand as she shares them!  Thank you Patti for being a faithful handmaiden!

Many years ago as I was agonizing about the call of the Lord upon my life, I heard very clearly the words, “I will be your rear guard.”  It brought immediate peace to the matter and has been an unfolding revelation to me as well as to those who walk with me.  When you hear something from the Lord like that you then begin to see it unfold in scripture and I learned that He is not only my rearguard, but He goes before me to prepare the way.

Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.Isaiah 58:8

For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the LORD will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rereward.  Isaiah 52:12

He is my all in all.  My rock, my sword, my shield.  My wheel in the middle of the wheel.

“He’s My Rock, My Sword, My Shield”  

Randy Travis Lyrics

He’s my rock, my sword, my shield
He’s my wheel in the middle of the field
He’s the lily of the valley
He’s the bright and morning star
Makes no difference what you say
I’m goin’ on my knees and pray
I’m gonna wait right here for Jesus
Till he comes.

The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.  Ezekiel 1:16

In Him we live and move and have our being.

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Acts 17:28

He is the wind in my sails and I am bathed in the water of His word.  My boat goes where He leads as He fills my sails.

Many times as I pray over the city I live in, I actually physically blow my breath and release His Spirit out of my being.   When we engage in prayer actively with body, soul, and spirit — the mind does not always even know what it is about.  I am happy to be with Him in the process.  Sailing on the waters with His Spirit to fill my sails and guide my boat.  I trust Him and you can too!

A Man of God — A Tribute and a Testimony to Brother Frid

 

This book is very personal to me and my family.  My folks met the Lord with Jesse and a few other people many years ago in the 1960’s.  Our families visited together through the years and they taught us about their encounter with Jesus, their study of the bible and encouraged us to seek Him too.  I remember bible studies in various homes specifically for the children.  Many of the children met Jesus along the way and were baptized in the Holy Spirit as well.  They now have their own stories to tell and most their own families.  Special thanks to Jesse and my parents for pointing the Way and for bible teachers like Brother Frid, and Pastor Hong Sit and Derek Prince who gave us a firm foundation for life’s ups and downs.  A few years down the road, my dad became a bible teacher and I have a few of his studies on tape.  Jesse, retired now, has been writing and I am glad for the opportunity to share some of his work.  I pray it will be a blessing to many and that we will leave a clear path for those that follow us.

Thanks Jesse for putting this part of the story in print!

==========================

The Man of God - Brother Frid

The Preface to A Man of God by Jesse C. Jones

This is a story about a man, a place, and a time when the lives of many people were touched by a power they did not know existed, nor did they know that this power was available to them.  The man that God used to demonstrate this power was unassuming and  totally devoid of the pride of life that plagues most men, and has led an untold number into exaggerated self-esteem and conceit.  He appeared in this appointed place without fanfare, and he came into our lives as a result of an event that he had no part in, and, as far as I know was not even aware of.  That he had been prepared for this place and time seems to be without question, for things happened rapidly after he began to be used by God in the ministry to which he had been called.

Looking back on this time, some fifty years ago, makes me think about how a large storm moves through a place and changes everything, and then is gone.  Like many of the changes brought about by the storm, the changes wrought in the lives touched by God through this man have not gone away, for they were changes to men’s hearts, and all the issues of life come from the heart (Pr. 4:23).  I know first-hand about the changes in the lives of my family: this is something we will consider later in the book.  But to tell this story in any meaningful way I need to describe the effect of this man’s ministry on other’s lives.  There were many people touched by this outpouring of God’s grace and I am personally acquainted with only a few: many have gone on to their eternal reward.  I wish I had more detail on the life of the principal character, but he and his wife have long since departed, and after fifty years there are relatively few knowledgeable sources still around.  Nevertheless, I have used the contacts I could identify.  I pray that readers will be touched by this story as I have been through the power of God manifested in this man’s life.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ

(As Recorded by the Beloved Disciple John)

 Jesse C. Jones

In the mid-1990’s when my wife was in the last stages of Alzheimer’s disease, I got into the habit spending the late hours of the day praying and talking to God.  It was during this time that I began to sense God urging me to do something that I would never have considered doing, and certainly did not feel qualified to do under any circumstance: He continually persisted in my writing an exposition on the seven churches of the book of Revelation.  Every night it was the same: He would bring it up, and I would argue that I was not qualified to undertake writing on the Bible, nor did I have the slightest insight regarding the seven churches.  This went on for some time, and eventually I came across a book that had been written on the seven churches of Revelation.  I thought that this was my “Aha” moment, and I immediately brought it to God’s attention, thinking that I was off the hook.  No such luck, for God (as I have learned) always has a Plan B that is better, and usually bigger, in mind, and that’s when He hit me with probably what He had in mind all along: writing a commentary on the entire book of Revelation.  This hit me like a ton of bricks: I had felt unqualified to write on the seven churches, now I was confronted with something so overwhelming there was no question about my inadequacy.  Undoubtedly, that is where He wanted me to be all the time: totally dependent on Him for every idea, concept and interpretation that I put to paper (or computer screen in this case).

So I began to study, search and write, and the words seemed to keep coming.  This was something totally new to me.  I had co-authored a couple of technical books in my last job as a teacher, but this was different.  Here I was dealing with subjects for which I could not reach down within to draw up understanding: I had to depend totally on Him.

I do not want to leave readers with the impression that everything in this book is right out of God’s mouth.  What I hope is contained therein is what God gave, processed through an ordinary layman’s mind and body, and therefore susceptible to some misunderstanding.  Several years ago a friend asked me why I thought God would give me knowledge that He had not given other men.  My answer was that God is no respecter of persons (Ac. 10:34), He gives knowledge to those who have the greatest need and desire, with no consideration of status or position in the world.  In fact, He seems to favor the least capable or honorable (1 Co. 12:22-24).

This work can be downloaded, in part or whole.

My hope is that God will use this to change lives.
