Many lives got blessed, touched and changed at these meetings. In some the Lord rearranged literally their molecules through the prophetic chords, with the persons feeling it and knowing that they would never be the same. As has been the Lord’s custom, He used me as well as Shira, to prophetically minister to individuals, some of whom received very concrete callings, directions, confirmations, exhortations, impartations and anointings in answer to their prayers.
Flowing together as a prophetic team for an extended period of time was new to both of us, as it brings our personalities into play which, if allowed, can interfere with ministry. It was a time of learning, and more of our flesh being put to death J. I learned quickly that personal desires and hopes have to yield to the overriding importance of pursuing the Lord’s interests. Surrendering self and unconditional love were the keys to becoming truly a team, flowing together in the Lord’s Spirit and anointing. Without a doubt, our Lord’s purpose and interests were accomplished.
Here a short quote from Shira's e-mail letter, Dec. 16th, following our trip:
I cannot even begin to do justice to what just happened on this trip, nor will I be able to process it all for a while.....suffice it to say it was an underground networking, a time of growth, a time of new friendships, new covenantial relationships, a time of congealing my relationship with Elinor, a time of outpouring of the prophetic through music, a time of teaching and psalmistry and helping George W. Bush get the White House in an intense battle in the heavenlies, as the apostolic was being established in God's government.
AND it was a time of going from one time zone to another and back again, sleeping in multitudinous (is that a word?) beds, going from 75 degrees to 0 in two days (Texas is a wonderful place) and learning how to occasionally keep my mouth shut (only occasionally - I can hear Max groaning)... it was a time of appreciation for the generosity of the Body of Messiah, and catching a glimpse of how my brothers and sisters in the Lord may one day carry my family "on their shoulders" back to the land. And it was a time of eating some GREAT steaks in Texas!!!
In that vein I want to thank all our wonderful hosts who served the Lord by welcoming us into their beautiful homes, literally “pampering” us. G-d bless you for your loving hospitality. May the Lord reward you a hundredfold for it.
NOTE: Shira's innocent expression "underground networking" has been terribly misinterpreted. Let me explain.
Shira referred to tens of thousands of saints the Lord has taken out of the organized, traditional church system, not because of what they wanted, but because of what He wanted. I refer to this process as the Lord's "Networking," as He is "networking" us all across the globe. Shira used the term "underground" merely because anything outside the "system" is usually referred to as "underground." No one is in a cult, or doing "strange" or "weird" things. We continue to serve the Lord faithfully in whatever capacity He would have us serve, and many of us meet in house churches, waiting on the Lord for direction.
I am saddened and troubled that people see "evil" in the most innocent words, and interpret godly works as being of the devil. It reminds me of our Lord having been accused of having a demon Himself and driving out demons by Beelzebul.
Galileo was called a heretic and threatened with burning at the stakes if he would not recant his assertion that the earth was round rather than flat, and circled around the sun and not vice-versa. Choosing not to die on the stakes, Galileo recanted the truth and accommodated his accuser's false beliefs. Today, Galileo stands vindicated, and his accusers... judged?
I am uncompromising as regarding the Word and Truth of the Lord, His Name and Person. This probably would have landed me as well on the stakes in the Middle Ages. Today it only alienates folks who prefer not to take such an uncompromising stand.
The apostle Paul wrote in Philippians 2:20-21, "I have no one like [Timothy], who will be genuinely anxious for your welfare. They all look after their own interests, not those of Yeshua the Messiah." It would appear the same is still true today.
