Have You Thought Why?

dronesofheaven

cassA lot of people talk about process.

Why? Why is it mysterious for so many, educational for others and misunderstood by so many?

(I wrote this 3 years ago. I believe it still stands today. I actually wrote about process in my book, The Interrupted Process.)

Too frequently we do not understand the pattern or the process. People equate process with education. Education is simply a stone of the foundation. A key. The answer is found in the person of wisdom, Christ himself. Wisdom is critical to the finding of answers. More than knowledge, it is the wielding of the knowledge. We are told that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of the wisdom. The recognition of “He is God and I am not.” Continue reading Have You Thought Why?

Declare – Thoroughly Make Clear

"Use me!"
“Use me!”

Yesterday had been a rough day on some fronts and as I was just falling off to sleep, I was awakened.

“Declare, declare, declare.”

What?

“Declare!”

My attention was being caught and my sleep was eradicated. A download of heaven was happening.

I grabbed my phone and began to research.

de·clare
diˈkler/
verb

verb: declare; 3rd person present: declares; past tense: declared; past participle: declared; gerund or present participle: declaring

Do you see that “3rd person”? My attention was being caught rapidly. I had worked out in my mind what I thought I was hearing, before I decided to grab the phone. 3rd person…

Origin

Middle English: from Latin declarare, from de- ‘thoroughly’ + clarare ‘make clear’ (from clarus ‘clear’).

I heard before I even grabbed my phone. “Add light. Clarify, make clear.” Not just clear, BUT thoroughly clear.

I have always believed that what you say is important. After last night I believe it more than ever. Is it possible declarations of the negative kind are making the atmosphere negative? That positive ones add light and life?

I know I will have more on this but I would be interested in how this might affect you.

Lightning, Revelation And Rewards

Last night I had a dream where when I tried to speak strikes of lightning would appear. The lightning did not cause destruction. It changed things. They became brighter. Colors began to become vivid. Things that were old became new. I could see people become refreshed in the atmosphere where these bolts were.

Job 28:25-28
“When He imparted weight to the wind And meted out the waters by measure,When He set a limit for the rain And a course for the thunderbolt,Then He saw it and declared it; He established it and also searched it out.”And to man He said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.'” Continue reading Lightning, Revelation And Rewards

New Seasons Have New Reasons

leejohndrowteamThis last week completed a very important season in my life. It was one of submitted obedience for me. To stop doing something I had done for years and change my focus. It caused me to be pulled into another world.

What was it you might ask? It was writing another book, this time on fathers. And because of my schedule it added the fact that each morning I would only have until 7AM to get what I was going to do, done. Whether I awoke at 5 or 6 that is all the time I would have.

Thunder And Lightning Announce His Angelic Visitation

leejohndrowteamI was at work. There were lots of flashes. I could hear thunder. Three times over the next few hours I went outside. It was bright and sunny. No thunder. No lightning.

I hear the sound of rain. How many times have we heard that? Said that? Prophesied that? Continue reading Thunder And Lightning Announce His Angelic Visitation

Are We In For The Long Haul?

leejohndrowteamThe other night I had a dream. An very unusual dream. (Why do I not watch scifi? Because my dreams are beyond it!)

I found myself wandering the country side. If I had to pick a place, I would say a rural area of New England. I was wandering about a meadow overlooking an orchard. Something shimmered, much like a sheet of Saran Wrap. As I approached it, it was more like a wall of shimmering plastic. I could see movement on the other side. As I wandered close to it, I felt myself pulled up to it by some power. It pulled me against it. In a flash, I was pulled through and found myself in a prison. As I looked behind me, I saw the wall of “plastic” with the bright sun and the blue sky vibrating through it. Continue reading Are We In For The Long Haul?
