Last week on Thursday, 2/25/21, the Equality Act of 2021, H.R. 5 (summarized below) passed through the U.S. House of Representatives. It is now poised to go to the senate for a final vote, possibly this week. It is imperative that we contact our Senate officials without delay and urge them to vote NO on the Equality Act.  Then, use our influence to inform others about this dangerous legislation and encourage them to call as well.  We can no longer abdicate our role and our voice in this representation form of government. Edmund Burke said it best: “All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing.” 

The proposed Equality Act of 2021 (H.R. 5) would make mainstream beliefs about marriage, biological facts about sex differences, and many sincerely held beliefs punishable under the law. The Equality Act makes discrimination the law of the land by forcing Americans to conform to government-mandated beliefs under the threat of life-ruining financial and criminal penalties. Presented as a bill with commonsense and decent protections against discrimination, H.R. 5 is anything but. The Equality Act politicizes medicine and education and demolishes existing civil rights and constitutional freedoms.” The Heritage Foundation

The Lightning of God!
December 5, 2020   I invite you to join me and Dutch Sheets each day as we pray for our nation until the election crisis has resolved. Dutch reads the daily Give Him 15 entry, makes comments, and then leads us in prayer. You can join us here https://youtu.be/r7ukNtPAeII  as we Appeal to Heaven for America. Below is the transcript of the 12/5/2020 message.
The Lightning of God Will Shock His Enemies My friend, Dr. Don Lynch, released the following dream at our prayer gathering in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday night, December 2. In this dream, I believe I represent the Ekklesia, the praying church in America. I know God released His lightning through our intercession that night and into the early morning, as tens of thousands of believers decreed His purposes into the land. We must not stop until He has fully accomplished His work in America. “In the dream, the lightning of God filled the skies over Philadelphia. I (Don) was standing in the doorway of a very small shed from colonial times. I could feel a silky thread in my hand and could sense the tug of it as it flew in the wind. My eyes followed it and I could see that it joined with another string, which had a skeleton key attached that sparked with electricity. I knew it was God’s lightning that was flashing and causing the sparking on the key. I realized we had been waiting for this storm. In the dream, I saw an odd container that could collect the power. I could see that the one holding the container was Dutch Sheets. “In this dream, God was using a real event in history to paint a picture for us. In actual history, Benjamin Franklin flew a kite in a storm with a key attached to its string. This experiment was to conduct electricity. He was assisted by his son, William. Dutch’s first name is William. In this parabolic dream, I saw William Dutch Sheets holding the container and collecting the power; he was collecting the lightning of God! Like a child with wondering eyes, Dutch looked up and said, ‘The air is alive! The air is alive over America!’ He breathed in deeply and seemed to be energized by the lightning of God.  “Dutch then moved the energized key from the kite and the scene changed; an ancient door now stood before him. He put the sparking key into a hidden lock. As he did, the energized key activated a mechanism inside the door. The ancient door burst open and angels of God were released into the nation. They were not sluggish; they were active! They weren’t there to negotiate, but to establish. Dutch then said, ‘We did it! We did it! We did it!’ Holding the container, he said, ‘Look. We have all we need to finish. Lord, we welcome your lightning to America!’” End of dream. Don then explained, “Benjamin Franklin went on to invent the lightning rod as a result of his real-life experience. But God is saying to us that we are His lightning rods, collecting His power and releasing it into the earth. America, hold up your hands. Receive the lightning of God! We, the Ekklesia, carry it! And now, we release it! We direct the lightning of God into the land. And we discern that an ancient gate is opened and angels are being released into our nation. The enemy is shocked by the lightning of God. Shockwaves will shock the courts, shock the swamp, shock the world! “Insert the key into the ancient mechanisms and angels will flood the skies over America. We declare that the enemies of God have no hiding place, for the shockwaves of the lightning of God are hitting this nation. America shall be saved!” “Listen! Listen to the roar of His voice, to the rumbling that comes from His mouth. He unleashes His lightning beneath the whole heaven and sends it to the ends of the earth. After that comes the sound of His roar; He thunders with His majestic voice When His voice resounds, He holds nothing back.” (Job 37:2-4 NIV) Give Him 15 minutes in prayer: Consider the fact that you are a container for God’s amazing power. Ask Him to show you where to release His mighty power Ask Him to release multitudes of angels into America in this season. Confess that we have all we need to finish this assignment. Ask God to shock the courts, the swamp, and the entire nation with his exposure and deliverance. A prayer you can pray: Father, in this hinge moment in history, as Your sons and daughters, we release Your lightning into the nation. The thunder and lightning of You, the Most High God, is striking the land. We believe we are to govern this land with the decrees You give us to decree. We must rebuild. Psalm 11:3 says, “If the foundations are destroyed, what will the righteous do?” We must be a Nehemiah company that restores the gates and walls of America. We will use the keys given to us in Your word to do so. We will open the ancient gates and release the heavenly host to come and help us. They will carry out Your word. Unleash Your lightning, oh God! Cause Your thunder to roll across the land, terrifying Your enemies. Roar with Your majestic voice! Roar and hold nothing back. Strike and strike and strike again. Shock the enemy with the fierceness and swiftness with which You move. Let the power of Your lightning strike and strike and strike again. Expose and uncover until they know they have nowhere to run. It will all come out. The entire plan. We decree: America will be saved! Today’s decree: We release the lightning of God into the land, and the resulting shockwaves of God will uncover every hidden thing that stands in His way!

Spiritual Intelligence

I’m Praying This For You!

[From Kris Vallotton’s Blog, Posted 9/30/2020]

“We know a lot about IQ (Intelligence Quotient), which is the brain’s ability to process information. There’s EQ (Emotional Intelligence), which is the soul’s ability to process information. Today I want to talk about SQ, which is Spiritual Intelligence. We are a spirit that has a soul and a body. We’re supposed to be led by our spirit.

5 Dimensions of Spiritual Intelligence:

  1. The Gift of Discernment: The ability to actively perceive the spiritual entities that are influencing people, organizations, and geographical locations and applies to their motives, attitudes, inclinations, and mindsets.
  2. The Gift of Knowledge: the ability to receive facts and pertinent information about the visible realm by communicating with the Holy Spirit.
  3. The Gift of Wisdom: The ability to rightly apply knowledge in a way that builds for the future that was envisioned by the creator so we develop a divine ecosystem that yields life.
  4. The Gift of Prophecy: The ability to foresee the future before it happens and the ability to understand a person, organization, or geographic locations’ divine purpose and call. 
  5. The Mind of Christ: The ability to process all aspects of life from the eternal, timeless, and multi dimensional perspective. The ability to think supernaturally and perceive the natural world through infinite probabilities and limitless resources that transcend the laws of physics and the restrictions of physical realities.”

Tap In to the Truth

“But when the truth-giving Spirit comes, He will unveil the reality of every truth within you. He won’t speak His own message, but only what He hears from the Father, and He will reveal prophetically to you what is to come.” John 16:13 TPT

If you know Jesus Christ and are baptized in the Holy Ghost, somehow inside you is the answer to every financial problem, every spiritual problem and every physical problem that exists. You have answers for problems you don’t even know about yet!

If you’re a businessman, that means the Holy Spirit will show you how to increase your profits and reduce your expenses. If you’re a mother, it means the Holy Spirit will show you how to settle arguments between your children. If you’re a student, it means the Holy Spirit will show you how to excel in your classes.

Prayer: Father, help me stop relying on what I can do and instead FIRST ask the Holy Spirit to give me the knowledge and wisdom I need to solve the problems of each day. I am taking Jesus at His Word and seeking the wisdom of the ages to work on my job, in my family and in my world. Today I tap in to the truths He’s placed in me.

From: Faith to Faith Daily Devotional, Kenneth & Gloria Copeland

“This one thing I do, forgetting what lies ahead, I press on towards the mark…” Philippians 3:13 -14 

“It’s time to be aggressive and energetic when it comes to letting go of the past and pressing forward to the abundant life God has in store for you. It’s time to rise up and boldly go after your victory! It’s time to develop a warrior mentality and proactively pursue the happiness, health, and peace that God has promised in His word.

Prayer to say:  Dear Father, give me the boldness to pursue victory for my life. I determine today to forget my past failures because I know they are washed clean by the precious blood of your son, Jesus.  I will rise up today and declare and pursue the plan You have prepared for me. Fill my heart with dreams and visions of Your Kingdom come, Your will be done in my life, which is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost!”

Mega Shift

This one is definitely worth repeating (posted previously in 2016). In his culture-defying book Mega Shift  which doubles as a success manual for marketplace Christians,  James Rutz gives the following  tips on building Christian community.  I suggest that these same principles can very effectively give your business or career the edge it needs to move into God’s stream of your Kingdom assignment – –  which brings supernatural effectiveness and success. How you incorporate these points is where your unique creative genius applies!

  1. Invite a strong presence of God
  2. Lift everyone’s spirits
  3. Enable them to overcome sin in their lives
  4. Help them face and overcome their problems
  5. Teach them the whole counsel of God
  6. Empower them to do things they’ve never done before
  7. Build them into a  true team.

Imagine the possibilities when “working” in that environment!
