The Passing of a Mantle – Faith of our Fathers

My Father, Joe Jensen, went home to be with Jesus on October 2, 2012.  He was surrounded by his family when he went to be with Jesus.  He was 84 years old.  I was preparing to come back to Minnesota from California to say goodbye to him.  I was leading a prayer meeting at the Vineyard Church in Laguna Niguel, California.  There were about 12 people there and we were in worship when I felt an intense desire to pray for my father.  We prayed for about ten minutes for my Father and I felt a release by the Lord that everything was going to be fine.  About twenty minutes later my sister called and told me that my Father had passed away the same time we were praying for him.  My sister, Jane, told us that his eyes were closed and all of a sudden he opened his eyes .   His eyes were as large as saucers and he looked astounded!  Then he went to be with Jesus.  My Father slid into home plate in heaven and is now playing in the BIG LEAGUES.

This is all very significant because the Lord has been speaking to me about baseball often in prophetic metaphors.  The Lord has told me that bases are loaded and the church is about ready to hit a grand slam.   All of heaven is going to do the WAVE!  The fields are ripe unto harvest and I believe millions of souls are going to come into the kingdom during this next season.  I hear the Lord saying, “It’s time to PLAY BALL!”   This is our season and we are going to hit it “out of the park”! 

My older brother, Jack, passed away over 22 years ago.  He was 32 years old when he went to heaven.  It was one of the saddest days of our lives to have to say goodbye to him.  But we knew that Jack went to heaven and is with Jesus.  My dad and Jack are now reunited in heaven and I am sure that it was a beautiful homecoming. 

I have been working on the movie about Lonnie Frisbee for several years now and it is getting ready to launch.  This movie is all about Father/son relationships and how God is getting ready to bring forth a “Move of the Fathers”.  Lonnie had been the catalyst for the Jesus Movement in the sixties and seventies.  But he experienced much pain with Father figures in his life and became very disillusioned.  But at the end of his life He finally understood the Father heart of God and was healed of his pain. 

God is getting ready to awaken the hearts of His people around the world and show them the love of the Father.  He is going to “turn the hearts of the children back to their Fathers” as in Malachi 4. 

God has chosen us all to be a part of the “Dream Team”.  Let’s Dream Big and believe that all things are possible.  It’s time to PLAY BALL.  It’s time for the GRAND SLAM!  All of heaven is going to do the Wave.  Many souls are going to be saved.  It’s our time to get up to the plate.  Don’t be late and don’t hesitate. 

It’s time to hit a HOME RUN!
