What an incredibly, full year 2013 has been for Aglow!
As the New Year began, I felt excitement for what lay before us. My excitement was not based on the negative thinking that can come by looking at the earthly kingdom our feet are standing on. It was based on walking with our hearts and minds firmly focused on the reality of the Heavenly Kingdom we represent on earth. My thoughts turned towards Hebrews 13:5, I will never leave you or forsake you. This simple, profound scripture has been true for Aglow since our inception in 1967. The Lord is with us in overwhelming ways.
This year has been a time where the release of God has been even greater, brighter, filled with more light, and exploding with wonder and awe, as He manifests Himself through us. It is what all our preparation has been about. The light in us is increasing and though the darkness around us is also increasing, we are walking into that darkness without fear, casting His Light and His Truth wherever we go.
Early in the year, I watched with wonder as God began to dismantle old, negative mindsets. As I began to see the revelation that the curse of living in negative ways has been broken by His sacrifice, I was staggered at how deeply society, as well as the Church, has lived in this negative pattern of thought and speech. The truth is, Jesus took all negativity! It was laid on Him at Calvary. He bore it in His own body so we could be free! Now, daily, we make conscious choices to walk in that freedom. The internal pre-disposition of our old, natural man is being reprogrammed by the Holy Spirit to live in the fullness of our new identity as a new creation.
Revelation shifts everything. When truth breaks into your life, you will find that everything has to come to a place of being reordered. The Holy Spirit is aligning us with the nature and the truth of who God really is. We are being lifted into a whole new dimension and we get there by living out of a renewed mind. What a glorious process.
In the Book of Acts, we see the ministry of the church begin with the Holy Spirit inhabiting believers. In May, 2013 when Aglow was gathered in Jerusalem with Asher Intrater, a Messianic Israeli believer, he asked:
What if Aglow worldwide would receive a commission from the apostolic leadership of the city of Jerusalem in keeping with the scripture in Acts 1:8? You would be the same Aglow, with the same vision, the same fire, and the same worship, but all of a sudden you would be positioned differently in the Spirit. You would have a new power because you would represent what has been reestablished after 2000 years in Jerusalem. It is Jerusalem that has sent you out. It would be the restoration of Acts 1 to prepare for Yeshua to come back and we want to be aligned in that way.
The response of the Aglow leadership present in Israel was an overwhelming yes! All those present with us arose to receive this fresh spiritual commissioning and positioning to complete the Great Commission in modern day times, even as it was spoken of in Acts 1. From Jerusalem to the ends of the earth.
Wealth of the Nations
Asher shared further insights related to the provision that will come to accomplish this corporate, global commission. He connected the great commission in Acts 1 and 2 with Isaiah 60. Asher said:
Isaiah 60 starts with the prophecy, “Arise, shine for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.” Darkness will cover the earth, which would at least be partially pre-millennium because there won’t be darkness covering the world during the millennium.
Who will the light shine upon? The nation of Israel. The true international Church. The Messianic remnant of Israel.
Isaiah 60 goes on to state an incredible promise that the ’wealth of the nations’ will come to you - to the same combination of Israel, the Church, and the Remnant.
For what purpose should all that money come?
God has given us the mandate to restore and complete the great commission of world evangelism from Acts 1 and world revival from Acts 2. He utterly intends for that to take place. But it would require finances for the communication, administration, and infrastructure to do it.
The wealth of the nations to come to finish the work of Yeshua’s Kingdom in this age and to prepare the way for Him to return makes sense, Biblically, logically, and morally.
The Bees Are Amassing
In August 2013, we received the following word from Chuck Pierce:
This is a season where My honey bees are going to amass again. My warriors will arise and produce the honey from the rock.
There is going to be a new move of God through every women’s structure in this earth. My miracles in the days ahead will come from women standing in the midst of the honeycomb and speaking My word in a way My word has never come forth in the earth! And when you do that, the enemy will be able to only go so far and not be able to go any further.
In September, prior to our Global Conference in Orlando, Florida, I had the honor of speaking at Chuck’s “Head of the Year” conference. Following my time of speaking, this prophetic word was spoken over me:
I saw the Lord transmit the anointing that was on you into the whole meeting. I saw the feet of people being released. Wherever the soles of your feet step, I will soften the ground. I will open up that place and release the anointing of honey on that place. I will sweeten the ground because of you and I will bring healing to a whole generation.
I believe that those words are being spoken not only to me, but to the entire ministry of Aglow.
I see you as ground softeners. Your heart, your prayers, your tears, and your giving. Your participation in this ministry serves as a ground softener. We are moving forward to take territory, to take further ground. Yes, our feet are moving to the ends of the earth!
A House of Bread for the Nations
There is a fresh wind of the Spirit that has been moving upon us. It is one of the reasons that bees are amassing again. In the book of Ruth, Naomi had left Bethlehem, the house of bread. While living in Moab for 10 years, her husband and two sons passed away. And then she heard: God had visited His people once again with bread.
As I read that phrase, I immediately thought of Aglow and the fresh moving of His Spirit that we have experienced these past few years. Aglow has been a house of bread for the nations. We are a house of bread that has brought life to thousands of people. It is because of you that our outreach into more than 170 nations continues. It is because of you that fresh bread is being given to the hungry.
As we turn our eyes towards 2014 and the opportunities that await us, I ask you to join me as I sow into Aglow’s future. God has placed each one of us in Aglow to accomplish His purposes in the earth. He has scattered us among the nations. We have touched people around the world in amazing ways. Will you stand with us by making an end-of-the-year gift to the ministry? Will you consider making it your best gift, an offering to the Lord? Our prophecies ensure our victory. They spell out our Kingdom identity. May the aroma of the fresh bread that is in our house draw the lost, heal the sick, deliver those in captivity, and bring freedom to the oppressed. 2014 is the acceptable year of the Lord for all nations!
Thank you for responding to the nudge of the Holy Spirit as you consider;
