All About Holy Spirit: Visions, Open Doors, Transformation

flowing blue waterLead the way Holy Spirit! This is my focus as I speak, minister, travel…..Holy Spirit guides me in the Way, Jesus Christ. The Spirit of God is not some ethereal wispy wind, without form or function. Holy Spirit reveals Jesus Christ in directing my path. Holy Spirit reveals heaven’s direction,  guiding and leading me as I step out and move in what is revealed. Heaven manifesting on earth.

But when the Friend comes, the Spirit of the Truth, he will take you by the hand and guide you into all the truth there is. He won’t draw attention to himself, but will make sense out of what is about to happen and, indeed, out of all that I have done and said. 14 He will honor me; he will take from me and deliver it to you. 15 Everything the Father has is also mine. That is why I’ve said, ‘He takes from me and delivers to you. (John 16:13-15 Message)

When we travel. Holy Spirit sets our agenda, opening doors into nations, gatherings, or even small home groups. He makes the way in Christ before we even get there, preparing the hearts of the people to believe, receive and be transformed as we minister Christ.

Here is how Holy Spirit moved through a service in Poland on April 3, 2016.

At the Sunday service in Elblag, worship flowed in a strong sound, escalating up into the spiritual atmosphere. I received a vision in which I saw a tunnel open up in the middle of the sanctuary. This tunnel extended from heaven to earth. As I looked up with the eyes of the Spirit, I saw a great cloud of witnesses looking down at us. It seemed that they wanted to be invited into the service, to see heaven connect with earth in that service on that day.

From years of ministry experience, I know as Holy Spirit gives vision, it’s  best to wait on the Lord to receive direction in how to move in the Spirit based upon what is seen with the eyes of the spirit.

I then had another vision where I saw myself and 2 others on the worship team begin to sing together at the microphone. No words. Just a clear sound of harmony, voices blending together, an escalation of drawn out notes in strength and power. As I asked the pastor if it was okay to do this, he said yes so I obeyed the vision from the Lord.

We saw the sound going out from the three of us as notes echoing up the tunnel into the heavenly realm. These notes bounced off the sides of the tunnel until they met the sound of heaven coming down with another sound. The two sounds mingled together and I could hear a heavenly chorus, loud and clear.

As these sounds increased, I saw in the Spirit, oil began to flow down the walls of the sanctuary. Oil signifies anointing. For that day, I knew that a healing anointing was present. I believed the Lord was present to heal in many different ways.

The Pastor came up to confirm the word by speaking about a heavenly chorus being released through worship. He then asked the worship team to sing a few more songs, which tied in with all that was going on. A beautiful anointing was present, a glorious story being played out, scripted by heaven itself.

As I began to preach. Holy Spirit then directed me to a new message, a time of storytelling to be exact. The story was about the woman with the alabaster box, facing a room of religious leaders, walking up to Jesus to anoint Him in a most timely and intimate manner with oil. It spoke of risking it all in the face of religious persecution to love Jesus.

The cry of the Lord this particular day sounded out through the word, through vision and worship and through the altar call. Healing – emotional healing for guilt, shame, deep roots of rejection. Physical healing of bodies. Spiritual healing to know that the love of God called many back to relationship with Jesus Christ.

This is flow. This is Holy Spirit who directs and scripts each gathering so that all glory honor and reverence goes to Jesus Christ. This is how Rivers of Eden ministers – in glory. I spend time worshipping in His presence, reading and studying the Word of God and then Holy Spirit flows from a deep well of Christ that is within my life. I am very excited about creativity expressed in Christ through Rivers of Eden in the days ahead.

We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God’s original purpose in everything created. 16 For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels––everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. 17 He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment. 18 And when it comes to the church, he organizes and holds it together, like a head does a body. He was supreme in the beginning and––leading the resurrection parade––he is supreme in the end. From beginning to end he’s there, towering far above everything, everyone. (Colossians 1:15-18 Message)

Transition Into 2016 – Holy Spirit Journey To Texas

12314019_1072377059469111_6846878766577459281_nLots of prophetic thoughts rise up in me as I journey into 2016. There will be plenty of blog posts focused on that after the holidays.

But right now, it’s all about settling into Texas. Let me take you on our Holy Spirit journey in how we are walking in sync with the Lord, each and every day during this move. It will be great transitional writing for me leading into the next series of blog posts after the holidays.

Lots of ups and downs in this move,   leading me to trust and obey God with each step. Not seeing the whole picture leaves me frazzled at times but I keep going (along with Marvin).Frustration can set in at the little things – looking at 10 houses and never feeling like this was the ‘one’ for us. Endless hours of driving between El Paso and San Antonio birthed a new level of patience in me. 

I love Holy Spirit adventure, journeying into the heart of God, trusting Him to lead the way into a Christianity that is dynamic and alive, and yes, a bit scary at times.

Downsizing, leaving things behind – either I am going to walk by faith or live in fear. What kind of life is that? Travel and change is my norm. At least, that is what I keep professing isn’t it?

Truth – Left to myself, I probably would not have moved back to Texas. I truly love California. But, when God said to go, we obeyed. Yet, there is more to the initial act of obedience.

God spoke and told me to “Bless Texas.” And so that is what I have been doing – as I am walking country roads in Beaumont close to my mother-in-laws home, driving up to Dallas through, etc. I bless Texas.

And……when we do that…….God places a love in our hearts for that very place into which He calls us for a season – to see its beauty, to encounter its people, and to look with creative eyes to see your purpose here for such a time as this.

Lord, I pray that Texas is our small open door, opening wide, into the nations…only You can do this Lord, in your way, in your divine timing.
