Preaching at Home This Week!

12 11 2021


After a wonderful time in Idaho speaking four times, it is good to be home. This Sunday at 11am it is my honor to speak at Wake Forest  Grace Assembly of God. Last Sunday I spoke at Cocolalla Cowboy Church on the subject of the Abraham Accords and Elisha the prophet of God. We need to see with the eyes of the Holy Spirit and not succumb to fear. If God is for us, who can be against us?

I will share a modified version of the same message this week. If you are in the Raleigh area, I invite you to join us. Doreen and I have been blessed to be part of the fellowship at Grace Assembly of God when not traveling or ministering in other local churches. The Lord Jesus has been especially moving in life, healing, salvation, and encouragement there this summer and fall. Pastor John and Sherry Thrift radiate the light of God’s glory. This is God’s end time purpose for every believer.

Arise, shine; for your light has come! ​​And the glory of Yehovah is risen upon you. ​​For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but Yehovah will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. Then you shall see and become radiant, and your heart shall swell with joy; Isaiah 60:1-2, 5a

This is the literal promise to Israel, but we who have been grafted in through the blood of Jesus share in the promises. Hallelujah!

So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, and said, “Yehovah, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then Yehovah opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:16-17

I am also excited to announce that Michael Masambu of Kenya will be in the area from Nov. 27-Dec. 6 and will speak, Lord willing, at New Path Church in Raleigh and Grace Assembly in Wake Forest, as well as smaller groups through the week. Please be in prayer for the moving of the Holy Spirit in all of these gatherings. Thank you.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for rain as Israel enters the rainy season.

Why  do I use God’s literal covenant Name: Yehovah? Here is a link to the explanation in my book: The Hebrew God Who Has No Name. And here is a link to a great visual from my friend Keith Johnson.

Stay in Your Own Lane

31 07 2020

Stay own lane

My good friend and brother, Pastor Bill Morgan, tells a great story of learning to hear from God. As he was seeking God about expanding into several new areas, he heard the Lord tell him to stay in his lane. If he tried to do things outside of his calling and giftings it would not go well.

Later he was driving on a major highway and sharing that story with a friend when he came upon a construction zone. Just as he finished his story, a large traffic sign said: “Stay in your own lane.” It was a timely confirmation.

Pastor Bill’s story has stuck with me. At this time in my own life and ministry there are many different opportunities in front of me. The Lord has reminded me to stay in my own lane.

Elisha Vision Ministries was birthed out of our love for Israel and our specific calling to impart that love to others. It was based on Elisha’s prayer for his servant when surrounded by the Syrian army. The servant only saw the Syrians, but Elisha saw heaven’s armies and prayed that his servant’s eyes be opened to see in the Spirit.

So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, and said, “Yehovah, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then Yehovah opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:16-17

Doreen and I have a certain lane to proclaim the opening of the eyes of God’s servants, especially to His eternal covenant with Israel. Please pray for us to fulfill our calling and to stay in our own lane.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Heal the Waters of Death and Barrenness

23 02 2018

Elisha’s Spring at Jericho

A new day is dawning…

Then he went out to the source of the water, and cast in the salt there, and said, “Thus says Yehovah: ‘I have healed this water; from it there shall be no more death or barrenness.’ ” So the water remains healed to this day, according to the word of Elisha which he spoke. 2 Kings 2:21-22

For several years I have heard in my spirit that Yehovah is transitioning from the days of Elijah to days of Elisha. What does that mean? We call our ministry Elisha Vision because he could see in the spirit and prayed for his servant who could then also see. Even though they were surrounded by the Syrian army, they saw that God’s angel army surrounded the Syrians. Elisha told his servant that there were “more with us than with them.” The New Testament often calls us to have “eyes to see and ears to hear.”

But the verse quoted above reveals a deeper understanding of Elisha. After he received Elijah’s mantle, he came back to the Jordan river and cried:”Where is the God of Elijah?” He then struck the water and crossed over on dry land. Three days later as he waited in Jericho, the men of the city appealed for him to heal their bitter spring, which he did. There would be no more death or barrenness and it is healed to this day.

In January 1990 I had the joy of stopping at that very spring, with my friend Duane, to fill our water bottles for a sojourn into the Egyptian desert. I can report that the water in that spring is still sweet!

Elijah means “God is Yehovah.” Elisha means “God is Yeshua!” We are moving into a new era in Messiah Yeshua in this day. Elisha was used for several resurrections. Jesus is the resurrection and the life! If John the baptist was Elijah, then Jesus was Elisha. This new day will be characterized by supernatural power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit. Yehovah will heal the waters of death and barrenness. And he will use us… Where are the Elishas?

A friend, Juanita, in our home group recently shared a dream that kept repeating in a loop all night. She saw a withered crippled hand that was gradually healed and made whole. She kept dreaming it over and over that night, but wondered what it meant. The Lord gave me the interpretation that it represented the body of Christ that has been weak and impotent. But God is healing the hand, His Hand, so we can touch people and bring the healing of the water of death and bitterness. We will see salvation, physical healing and miracles. We will see relational restoration and emotional healing. The key is to touch people. We are His Hand extended to a fallen, hurting world. With resurrection life, we will see unprecedented fruitfulness for His purpose.

After Elisha died, a dead man was thrown into the cave of Elisha’s bones and the man was raised back to life, by contact with Elisha’s bones. After Jesus died, His resurrection life was made available to all who would touch Him and follow Him. As for me and my house, we will follow Yehovah and His Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain, and please pray for me as I write a new (untitled) book on the Elisha anointing. Thank you.
