2013 – A Time To Be Born

God is moving in tremendous ways during this time in history.  2013 is going to be a great year of connecting for God’s people.  There are 13 major joints in the body and the Lord is going to start bringing connections to many people.  God is going to bring all the dry bones together and breathe new life into her this year.

Yesterday was my birthday and I woke up and heard the Lord speak this to me, “Meri, it’s a time to be born”.  I sat there for a few minutes and then I thought of the verse in Ecclessiastes 3: 1-2 “There is a time for everything and a season for everything under heaven.  A time to be born and a time to die.”

I sat there for a moment and pondered the last several months.  Last year in October of 2012 I had three people die in my immediate family.  The first one was my father, Joe Jensen, who died on October 2, 2012 of leukemia.  The second one was my cousin, Mary Jo McKracken who was in Belgium getting ready to speak at a conference.  She died in her sleep.  She had been struggling with an illness for many years and it was her time.  The last was my Uncle Phil Bifulk who died suddenly the last day of October of 2012.  That was the season for “A time to Die”.  But I know that they are in heaven and having the time of their life with Jesus.

But the Lord spoke to me that now is “A time to be Born”.  Many of you have been going through seasons where it seems like everything is dying around you.  But now it’s a time to be born.  The season of death is over and you are going to come into a new season of promotion, position and prosperity.  Believe that God is telling us during this new season and trust Him even when things look dark.  Your dark days are over….it’s time for a new season.

There was a young girl named Esther.  There is a book named after her in the Old Testament.  It’s called the Book of Esther.  Esther was a young girl whose parents died when she was young.  She basically became an orphan!  Her Uncle Mordechai raised her during this time of transition.  There was a king who Esthergoverned in the land named Xerxes.  He had a feast one day and wanted his wife to come and celebrate with them.  Her name was Vashti and she declined his invitation.  The King was so enraged by her not coming at his request that he banished her from his kingdom and started looking for a new wife to replace Vashti.  All the young girls in the kingdom were called to come forward for the King’s search.  Mordechai encouraged Esther that she should go forth during the search.  For one year all the girls went through beauty treatments and preparation for their time to go before the King.

All of a sudden the day came for Esther to come before King Xerxes.  I am sure she was nervous but she knew that God was with her.  When she appeared before the King she had immediate favor and was selected to be the King’s new wife.  This is what I was sensing that it is a NEW SEASON WITH NEW FAVOR.  A NEW THING WAS HAPPENING IN THE LAND.

But at the same time that God was raising up Esther there was a wicked plot being hatched by a man in the king’s council named Haman.   The Jewish people had been in captivity in Persia and Esther was a Jew as well.  Her uncle told her not to reveal her ancestry to the King.  Haman put out a decree that King Xerxes would exterminate all of the Jewish People.

Mordechai heard of this wicked plot and called for Esther.  He told her of the plot and Esther informed him that she had not been called by the King to come into his chambers for a while.  It was under their law that if she came when not called there was a possibility that she could be killed.  Esther mentioned this to Mordechai and he replies to her in Esther 4:14, “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish.  And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?  But if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place, but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

Wow!  God put her in a position for deliverance but she had the choice.  What are you going through today where you are at a crossroads!  It’s time to believe and go all the way with what God is calling us to do.  A time to be born….not a time to die.

Esther called her maids forth and went on a three day fast before she approached her husband, the King.  God gave her the strategy and when she approached the King she had favor.  He stretched out his scepter and asked her, “What is it that you want….I will give you up to half my Kingdom”.  We are in a season of favor – not fear.  We have to be bold and approach the Lord with the directives that He has given us.  Not be in fear as to what the devil is trying to destroy in our lives.EstherRing

Basically what happened is that the plans the Haman had to destroy the Jews did not come to pass.  His evil plans were exposed through Esther to the King and Haman was killed.  Justice was served and the Jews were granted immunity and the King made a decree in the land for the record and they were honored.    What are you going through in this season?  God is going to turn it all around and give you double for your trouble.

Even as this month we also celebrate Valentine’s Day on February 14th, God wants us to remember that we need to remember I Corinthians 13.  It’s the love chapter.  We need to walk out all of these trials with love and forgiveness to our enemies who are trying to sabotage what God is doing.  Everything is coming up roses for the King’s Kids and Justice will be served.

The Feast of Purim (about Esther) is being celebrated February 24th around the world.  Let’s celebrate not only Valentine’s Day but the deliverance of God’s people through a young orphaned girl named Esther who chose to believe God and trust Him even though she could have been killed.  He has called you to the Kingdom for “Such a Time as This”.

It’s Not How Your Start

I was laying in bed the other morning and I heard the spirit of the Lord speak to me saying, “It’s not how you start – it’s how you finish”.  And then I heard God say, “I want you to finish WELL!” 

In light of everything that has been  happening the last few days it seems like things are spiraling out of control.  But GOD IS IN CONTROL!  When the enemy comes in like a flood – the SPIRIT OF THE LORD WILL RAISE UP A STANDARD AGAINST HIM!

On Friday morning I was listening to the news when I heard about the horrible catastrophe at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.  When sandy-hook-elementary-4a deranged young man forced his way into the school and killed 20 elementary school children (most of them were six years old) and six adults including the principal.  We all shook our heads and wondered when this will end. 

I have been involved with many programs over the last several years about some of these school shootings with my good friend, Dr. Bruce Porter, who was the pastor of the first victim at Columbine High School – Rachel Scott.  In fact, the first program I ever did on my program “Now is the Time” was about the Columbine School Shootings!   Over the years as we saw these catastrophes accumulate I continued to interview Bruce about them.  These include the attack on the Twin Towers (911), The Amish Shootings, the attack on the school in Beslan, Russia, and the Red Lake Minnesota shootings.  Bruce was there at all of these events to offer his prayers and condolences. 

As we finish out this year the Lord is saying to us to “Stay the Course”.  The “Winds of Change” are here and we are going to see the Lord bring forth recovery and restitution to all that was lost. 

Makeshift-memorial-at-Sandy-Hook-Elementary-jpg

It’s interesting to see what has transpired on the east coast the last month.  First of all Hurricane Sandy hits 

the East Coast and causes much devastation.  And now, a school by the name of “Sandy Hook” elementary in a town named “New Town” is hit by one of the worst acts of violence in years.  I don’t believe that this is a coincidence. 

The meaning of the name Sandy is: “defender of men, protector of mankind”. 

We know that the Bible says that the devil comes to “Steal, Kill and Destroy”.

But God has come to give us Life and to give it to us IN ABUNDANCE.

When the storms are coming at us from all around us – just know that God is going to be our defender and our protector.  These young lives at Sandy Hook Elementary will not be in vain.  Their blood is crying out and God is responding. 

They are in heaven with the Lord and praising God!  But there is a NEW WAVE OF GOD which is springing forth in the midst of these storms and tragedies.  God is with us!  We will not despair! 

This wave will bring in the next great harvest.  Many sons and daughters of the kingdom will come into the glory during the NEXT NEW WAVE. 

Don’t look back at where we started from.  Look at the finish line and know that there is a crown waiting for you.  A new move which will bring forth many countless sons and daughters will be ushered in for this season. 

The light is always the brightest during the darkness.  As the world mourns the loss of these young precious souls in New Town….let us remember that Jesus will be the light the will shine in the darkness. 

2013 will be an incredible year for the Kingdom of God.  And even as Abraham Lincoln brought forth the 13th amendment …. Freeing of slaves…so let us realize that God is bringing forth freedom to those in captivity.  He is bringing the light of Jesus to a lost world. 

It’s during times like this that the world realizes that it’s all about families that matters.  God is our Father and He is bringing forth a move of THE FATHERS. 

He is going to reach a lost world with the light of His beloved Son JESUS.  Let’s press on toward the prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus.   The NEW WAVE OF THE LORD IS HERE! 

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!

A Great Awakening In California

The spirit of the Lord is moving in a tremendous way across the land and it is the time for “crossing over” into the promised land and our destinies.

Sixteen years ago God spoke to me and told me that there was a greater move of God coming than in the “Jesus Movement”.  I was told to form a foundation and call it “Youthwave Explosion” and the slogan would be – “be a part of the NEW WAVE”.    The very first Youthwave event was at the Anaheim Vineyard 16 years ago this Rosh Hashanah.

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish new  year.  It commemorates the creation of the world and marks the beginning of the “Days of Awe”, a ten day period of introspection and repentance that culminates in the Yom Kippur holiday – also known as the “Day of Atonement”.

September 17, 2012 is the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashanah and will mark the 16  year anniversary of Youthwave.  But there is a greater wave that is now here in California!  Many of the prophets around the country are receiving similar words in regard to this fact.

I have interviewed both James Goll and Munday Martin on my television program “Now is the Time”.  James had a dream this past summer which was very relevant and I want to share some of it with you on my blog.

In the dream he saw SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AS A WOMB FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST!    He said he was in the spirit like an eagle flying over the United States and he zoomed in on California.  He saw glimpses of redemptive purposes and plans.  He then turned in flight over portions of southern California and he saw something that seemed unusual.  Southern California was a womb for the body of Christ!  She had been used to conceive both the word and the spirit over the last 100 years of the church and to bring forth different movements of God.

His “knower” was on high alert as he flew over Los Angeles and Orange County that this womb had already received another word – implanted at least a year earlier – and that another long-term, almost overdue, birth was imminent.  He then soared over Pasadena and the next thing I knew, the eagle suddenly flew into the historic Mott Auditorium on the hallowed grounds of William Carey University.  HE SAW JOHN WIMBER STANDING ON THE PLATFORM!

He saw people worshipping the Lord and the place was filled with the spirit of God.  All of a sudden, the late John Wimber, former leader of the Vineyard Movement and the voice for the Third Wave, was firmly standing on the newly purple carpeted platform.  The cultural atmosphere was now pregnant with a realm of the glory and the thick majesty of God.  Then I heard and felt the voice of John Wimber echo an invitation that rattled the entire place.  He simply declared, “COME AGAIN HOLY SPIRIT”.    People started crashing to the floor under the impact and authority that resonated in those simple words!   Two more times John Wimber cried out those simple words and there was a CHURCHQUAKE!

People screamed in terror as the entire grounds and buildings were rattled by the sound of God’s voice being heard and felt once again.   He saw a great cloud of witnesses including Aimee Semple McPherson and others who were gathering around to peer in around this strange outbreak.  The convergence of old anointing s– still seemingly resident upon California – were now colliding.  And then Jim woke up from the dream shook to his core by the spirit of God.

And then I received another word from a friend of mine named Munday Martin.  I have interviewed Munday Martin on my television program and he is a revivalist for the kingdom of God.  His word was posted on the Elijah List within the last few weeks.  His word was about being awakened as well.  Here are some of his excerpts from his words.

“We are being awakened!  There is a great awakening upon us.  There is a greater Jesus movement on the horizon.  I see parking lots of convert venues being filled with young people leading a new healing revival in the streets.  I see people flocking to California again as in the “Summer of Love” but this time not for drugs, and not for new age, but because they hear Jesus is moving in California”.

California is being awakened again.  There is something shifting right now in the spirit realm.  This coming Rosh Hashanah will be the 16th anniversary of Youthwave at the Anaheim Vineyard.

On Mother’s Day of 1980 Lonnie Frisbee was invited to share his testimony.  He called all the young people up to the front after sharing his testimony and yelled “Come Holy Spirit” and the power of God hit the place.  All the young people fell to the ground speaking in tongues and filled with the power of God.  Half the elders walked out of the church because they didn’t think it was God.

Lonnie Frisbee had been the catalyst for the Jesus Movement in the late sixties and early seventies in Southern California.  In 1967 Lonnie went up to Tahquitz Canyon (near Palm Springs) and dropped LSD.  He cried out “God if your real – REVEAL YOURSELF TO ME”.    Jesus appeared to Lonnie and anointed him and told Lonnie that a light was put on him to reach the lost”.   The rest is history.

We have just completed the script about the Lonnie Frisbee story and I believe that God wants this movie to reach the world.  Another move of God is here but this time it will be a MOVE OF THE FATHERS.

John Wimber is significant in Jim Goll’s dream where he stood at the platform and said, “COME AGAIN HOLY SPIRIT”.   The Lord is going to visit California and this nation once again.  There is going to be a Churchquake and the sleeping church is going to awaken to her destiny.  God is going to turn the hearts of the father’s back to the children and the hearts of the children back to the Fathers – lest he strike the earth with a curse (Malachi 4).

On October 20th, 2012, I am doing a conference called “GloryWave Outpouring” at “The River Church” in Costa Mesa.  We will then be going down to Corona Del Mar at Pirate’s Cove and be doing baptisms.  God is breaking out in Los Angeles and Orange County.  Another wave of His spirit is here.  Let’s rock the region and see God’s power for this hour flow to the masses.    Get your board’s dude….surf’s up.

Go For The Gold

Many of you have been watching the Olympics and seen the athletes competing for the medals.  But the ultimate medal is the Gold Medal!  There are many of you that have been going through transitions now and ready to breakthrough into the “NEW” thing which God is bringing forth into the body of Christ! 

August is the eighth month and the number eight means “new beginnings”.  But I also sense that many have gone through such intense trials that they are very weary.  An athlete has to push himself while training and his coach is constantly challenging him to go harder than the athlete thinks he can endure.  Also, mentally the athlete has to envision himself as winning the event.  Many top athletes and contenders will see themselves crossing the finish line or scoring the point. 

In the Bible there is a scripture that applies to this.  In I Peter 1:7 it says, “That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, thou it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor at the glory of the appearing of Jesus Christ”. 

I hear the Lord saying, “Go for the gold!  Go for the glory!  This is the time that my church is going to shine.  Wake up and shake up.  I don’t care what has happened in the past…it’s time now to have a blast.  Run the race and you will find your pace.  Don’t look back at the season of lack.  But look ahead and run for the gold instead.  It’s another gold rush!  Get ready for the glory and the gold.  As long as you do what you are told.  It’s time now to be bold.  And I will give you back what the devil has stole.  And now is the time to cross the goal!  Go for the GOLD AND THE GLORY! 

Michael Phelps as a young man had very serious ADHD issues.  He had so much energy his mother felt she was going to lose her mind.  But then she enrolled him in swimming classes and he was like a fish out of water.  One thing Michael Phelps had was tenacity.  He hated to lose!  Many of you know that he just won his 18th gold medal (22 medals in all) at the Olympics.  I believe that this is a symbolic sign of Isaiah 22:22.  God is going to give us the key of David.  There are many keys that are being released to the church.  But we have to have patience, endurance and tenacity to not give up during times of hopelessness.  Every person in this world experiences these moments.  But we have to push past them and run for the gold. 

I have been working on producing a major motion picture about a man named Lonnie Frisbee for over five years.  After 3 screenplays and thousands of dollars spent – I finally found the writer who wrote the draft which I believe is the one God wants.  We just completed the script in May and now are putting together the package for final funding.  But in 2011 I was very discouraged and at one of the lowest places in my life.  I was suddenly awoken at on April 4 at 4:20 a.m.  My clock is not digital and it said, “4:4”.  I heard the voice of God say to me, “You are crossing over a threshhold, I am greenlighting your movie”.  The number 4 is the number of earth.  But 4/4 is about double portion and combined it says “8” or new beginnings.  Right after that time God started showing me how to raise the funds and they have been coming in.  If I would have quit after the 3rd script I would be no where today.  But I am pressing on for the prize – for the gold.  God told me to believe for an Oscar.  A gold statue!  Am I doing that for myself and for the glory!  No!  I want this one for the King and the Kingdom of God. 

One last story to encourage you.  Sylvester Stallone was an unknown actor who had gotten a few bit parts in the early 70’s.  One day he was watching a fight between Mohammed Ali and a Caucasian fighter who happened to knock down the champ.  He was inspired to write a script about a boxer who would “go the distance”.  He wrote the “Rocky” script in an amazing two days.  He was going out on an audition for a role in a movie.  A famous producer was there who was casting for the movie and as Sylvester Stallone was leaving he happened to mention to this man that he had just written a script.  The producer told Sylvester to send it over.  Well, he immediately had the script sent and amazingly got a call and said that the producer wanted to buy it for $100,000.  This was amazing!  But Sylvester Stallone had to tell the producer that only he could play Rocky.  They turned him down!  They wanted to get Robert Redford or Ryan O’Neil to play the lead.  Sylvester Stallone was broke as a joke.  He couldn’t even feed his dog and had to sell Butkiss (he was the dog who played in the movie with Rocky).  But Sylvester persevered and finally the offer got up to $400,000!  Most people would have taken the money at that time.   But Sylvester held onto his belief that he was the only one who could play Rocky.  He wrote the role thinking of himself playing Rocky.
Finally, after months of nothing happening….something did!  A man who owned a boxing gym in Philadelphia happened to read the script.  He was very excited and called up the producer and said that he would put up 1.1 million dollars if the movie could be filmed in his boxing gym in Philadelphia.  Sylvester Stallone got the call of his lifetime.  He could play Rocky!  The rest is history.  The movie went on to win five Academy Awards! 

So let’s believe that anything is possible!  Let’s go for the gold and don’t quit when things look bad.  Winston Churchhill was asked to speak at a college commencement ceremony many years ago.  He walked up to the podium with everyone looking at him with anticipation as to what he would say.  He walked to the podium, stopped, looked around and then he said these words, “Never give up, never, never, never give up”.  Then he turned around and walked away. 

Just keep going.  Eventually the tide will turn and you will see the winds of change blowing you right on course.  Go for the gold!  Let’s believe that anything is possible if we don’t quit and believe what God has told us to do.

Father’s Day…

On June 17, 2012, I will be celebrating Father’s Day with my dad, Joe Jensen.  I am getting on a plane in a few hours to spend the next few weeks with him.  He was diagnosed with Leukemia over a month ago.  We are all believing God for a miracle!

I am writing this blog as a tribute to my Father.

In Malachi Chapter 4 it says “That God will turn the hearts of the Fathers back to the children, and the hearts of the children back to the Fathers”.  We are at the time in history that there is going to be a move of the spirit where Fathers will rise up and become the mentors and men they were called to be.

My Father, Joe Jensen, has been a wonderful and great dad!  His own Father passed away when my dad was only two.  He started playing baseball when he was a young boy.  He eventually went on to play semi-pro baseball with the Milwaukee Brewers.  He quit playing baseball when he was in his early thirties due to an injury to his ankle.

But when he was 52 he started pitching again.  He joined a baseball league and started fulfilling his dream again – to play ball.  Most men his age would not have been able to throw a baseball.  But my dad has continued to pitch baseball up until last year.  My dad will be 84 on June 26th.  They have written my dad up in many newspaper articles and even did a six minute news package on a local ABC affiliate in Minneapolis which you can see in the video on my website.

The Lord spoke to me and said that He is getting ready to pitch motion pictures.  The Lord is calling the “Dream Team” together and we are going to hit it “Out of the Park”.  I have a blog about “Field of Dreams”.  If you build it they will come.  Well God has been preparing His “Dream Team” for a long time.  But we need to “Go the Distance” and believe that we are on the winning team.  Many of you have gone through challenging circumstances for so long its hard to believe.  But these are the times of suddenlies.  God is going to bring forth the greatest harvest the world has ever seen.

It’s time to PLAY BALL!  My dad never quit believing that he could play even though he was getting up in years.  In fact, the doctors said he was a freak of nature.  So believe in the dreams that the Lord has put in your heart.  God is our coach and he is setting us up for the GRAND SLAM.  Bases are loaded and it’s time to hit it “Out of the Park”.    All of heaven is going to do the WAVE!    A great awakening has begun!  It’s a move of the Fathers.  Happy Father’s Day Dad!

Mother’s Day 2012

This is the season that we are going to be celebrating Mothers.   On May 13th it will be Mother’s Day!  Everyone who has ever been born has had a Mother!  I feel the Lord say that God is about ready to birth something new in the earth.  Another wave of His spirit is here!

There was a significant event that happened on Mother’s Day 32 years ago.  John Wimber had been pastoring a church called Calvary Chapel in Yorba Linda.  He invited a young evangelist named Lonnie Frisbee to come and share that day.  Lonnie Frisbee had been a hippie during the Jesus Movement and God used Lonnie in a tremendous way during the late sixties and early seventies.  In 1967 Lonnie went up to Tahquitz Canyon and dropped LSD.  He cried out “God, if you’re real….reveal yourself to me!”.  He had an encounter where Lonnie had a vision of the Pacific Ocean.  But instead of being filled with water….it was filled with people who were in darkness.  Jesus appeared to Lonnie and told him that God was putting a light on him to reach lost people.  The rest is history.   God sparked a movement where thousands of young people came to know Jesus.

So now it is 1980 and the Jesus Movement had come and gone.  Many had been touched and still following after the Lord.  But something had shifted and many were crying out to God to see a fresh outpouring of His spirit.  John Wimber and Lonnie Frisbee had met a few months prior to this event at a pastor’s conference.  John had been seeking the Lord for a fresh visitation and believing that signs and wonders would follow.  He invited Lonnie Frisbee to come and share on Mother’s Day.  It was a typical Sunday morning.  John Wimber shared his message and then invited Lonnie Frisbee to come up.  Lonnie walked up to the podium and started sharing stories from the past about the Jesus Movement.  He called all the young people up around the altar.  He then raised his hands and said, “Come Holy Spirit”.  All of a sudden the power of God hit the place and all the young people fell to the ground under the power of the Holy Spirit.  They were all speaking in tongues and under a heavy anointing.

I have spoken to several people who were at this meeting.  They said it looked chaotic!  Half of the elders walked out of the church because they didn’t think it was God!  John Wimber just sat there looking around in amazement.  He had been praying for God to start moving with signs and wonders!  Was this the Lord?  John went home that night and got a phone call from a pastor in Denver.  God had woken up the pastor and told him to call John Wimber and tell John that what was going on in his church was of the Lord.  When John put the phone down he was truly amazed!  It was the Lord!  God was pouring out His spirit and the Lord was moving in signs and wonders.

The rest again is history!  The Vineyard church had been birthed on Mother’s Day.  John Wimber had been a Calvary Chapel but decided to branch out and become a Vineyard Church.  Chuck Smith blessed the ministry and they took off running!  The Vineyard Church started growing in a miraculous way.  Many people were coming and accepting Jesus as their personal savior.  But they were also seeing the Lord moving in signs and wonders.

We are at the time in history for another movement.  It will be a movement which will affect the media.  God is doing a new thing and He is pouring out His spirit in a new fashion.  This Mother’s Day God is going to break the seal.  I see Him choosing a new wine which he is going to break the seal, pop the cork and start pouring.  It’s time for a fresh new wine…..it times for another outpouring.

The Lord is birthing something new in the earth!  Get ready…..it’s time for the sons of God to be birthed in the earth.  It’s time for another awakening!

A Time For Crossing Over…

This is a season when everything is going to shift suddenly.    Last year an amazing thing happened to me on 4/4/11   I woke up from a sound sleep and looked at the clock.  It was 4:20 a.m. (on my clock it said 4:4).  I heard the Lord speak to me almost in an audible voice, “You are crossing over a threshold – I am greenlighting your movie.  Things are going to suddenly change!”  It was April 4th and the time was 4:20 a.m.   

I have been in development on a movie about Lonnie Frisbee for almost five years.  There had been many delays and difficulties the last few years.  When I heard the Lord speak to me about this I was instantly awake!   Wow!  God was going to greenlight the movie!  The bible says, “Unless the Lord build the house, they that labor, labor in vain!”.  (Psalms 127:1). 

It was a week later that we did our first Frisbee event and raised enough money to hire the writer and move ahead.  Now the script is done almost a year later.  But God is doing things so suddenly now that I hear Him saying, “Hold on – it’s time for the ride of your lives!”. 

On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King was assassinated.  This year it will be 44 years since Martin Luther King was killed.  Four is the number of earth and  44 together is  8.  Eight is the number of new beginnings.  But I also believe that 44 is 

significant of  Double Portion  or the spirit of Elijah.  Look at Malachi 4:4 and it says, “Remember you the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded to him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.  Behold I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.   And He shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of  the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. 

God is going to bring restoration to our families and everything that was lost will be recovered (Isaiah 61).  God is doing this in my own family.  My daughter, Christina, has been miraculously delivered from a spirit of anxiety and is now over in Japan and then going to Thailand to work with victims of human trafficking.  My son, Jason, is at the Dream Center and growing strong in the Lord every day.Don’t ever quit on your Dreams!  The Lord told me the end of last year that “He was going to make our dreams come true”.  This coming Easter Season just know that God is going to roll away the stone and the things which seemed dead in your life are going to be resurrected.  Don’t lose heart….don’t lose hope.  The Lord is going to greenlight your projects and give you favor.  JUST BELIEVE!

A Time To Cross Over…

This is a season when everything is going to shift suddenly.    Last year an amazing thing happened to me on 4/4/11   I woke up from a sound sleep and looked at the clock.  It was 4:20 a.m. (on my clock it said 4:4).  I heard the Lord speak to me almost in an audible voice, “You are crossing over a threshold – I am greenlighting your movie.  Things are going to suddenly change!”  It was April 4th and the time was 4:20 a.m.   

I have been in development on a movie about Lonnie Frisbee for almost five years.  There had been many delays and difficulties the last few years.  When I heard the Lord speak to me about this I was instantly awake!   Wow!  God was going to greenlight the movie!  The bible says, “Unless the Lord build the house, they that labor, labor in vain!”.  (Psalms 127:1). 

It was a week later that we did our first Frisbee event and raised enough money to hire the writer and move ahead.  Now the script is done almost a year later.  But God is doing things so suddenly now that I hear Him saying, “Hold on – it’s time for the ride of your lives!”.

every day.

Don’t ever quit on your Dreams!  The Lord told me the end of last year that “He 

 

was going to make our dreams come true”.  This coming Easter Season just know that God is going to roll away the stone and the things which seemed dead in your life are going to be resurrected.  Don’t lose heart….don’t lose hope.  The Lord is going to greenlight your projects and give you favor.  JUST BELIEVE!

A Cry For Hollywood…

Hollywood is at the epicenter of an incredible movement of the Lord.  In North America today the average person spends less than 28 hours a year in church but 6 hours per day saturated in media.  That’s 2190 hours in media verses 28 hours in church!  Wow! 

Most people spend more than half their day saturated in media.  A recent Nelson study determined there are more televisions in America than human beings!  The average child will have watched 4,000 hours of TV before Kindergarten.  By age 18 the average person in America will have seen 16,000 simulated murders and 200,000 acts of violence through media (National Institute on Media and Family). 

If you want to impact a generation – impact what is impacting them – MEDIA!  Better yet – impact it with your most powerful tool – love and prayer. 

Many people throughout the years have been cursing Hollywood.  I have heard many people say that nothing good comes out of Hollywood.  But throughout the years since Hollywood’s inception – God has used Hollywood in tremendous ways to bring forth epic biblical blockbuster’s which have impacted a culture. 

I have been in development on a major motion picture about the Jesus Movement and Lonnie Frisbee.  The script is now completed and we are believing that this movie will be completely funded and released within the next year.  We are not cursing the darkness but putting a light forth to reach those in great darkness and despair.

I want to invite you to an event which I am involved with called THE CRY HOLLYWOOD.  On Thursday, March 15, 2012, at the Gibson Amphitheatre, 100 Universal City Plaza, Universal City, CA from 2:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. you are invited to come join us from a time where thousands will cry out to God to BLESS HOLLYWOOD.  TheCRY Hollywood is a strategic day of worship, prayer, fasting and decreeing the blessing of God into the heart of entertainment media.  We are believing God to release His glory in a way that will ripple through the earth.  Join us in touching a city that touches the world.

There is power in our prayers.  There is power in our blessing.  Let’s take that power and loose His glory into a sphere that is impacting the world.  Let’s Cry out for Hollywood!
