We are living in a time where the former and latter rain are beginning to come
together (see Joel 2:23-24). I see the ancient streams beginning to merge with the
present streams to bring in the end-time harvest of souls.  Presently, many amazing
miracles, signs and wonders are happening world-wide for the glory of God.  This is
a mere foretaste of the great awakening, which will shake every nation.

    The New Testament instructs us, that we all know in part and prophecy in part.  It
is time for each one of us in the Body of Christ to function in and release our part
given by God.  We are living in “due time”.
    We will reap in due time if we faint not..

    Many have been waiting patiently on God, and for the refiner’s fire to purge and the
two-edged sword of the Word to divide between soul and spirit.  It has been a time to
exercise our senses to discern good from evil, and to extract the worthless from the
precious, to only speak forth those things which are precious.

    The word of God has come to test and try us and some have been found wanting.  
Others have allowed their hearts to be directed into the love of God and into the
patience of Christ, and as patience has had its perfect way, they have been found
lacking nothing in this strategic hour.
    “Now many the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of
Christ.” 2 Thess. 3:5


    For those who pursue the deep things of God start by desiring the delight in the
Lord and walk in intimacy and union with Him (see Psalm 37:4, John 15).  It is the
pleasure of those, who are sold out to Jesus, to seek His kingdom and His
righteousness first.  Those are the ones, who take the yoke of Jesus and learn of
    “Take My yoke.and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart..(Matt11:29).

    The Holy Spirit, being the spirit of Truth, will teach you all things (see John 14:26)
and we are invited to come up and walk through the open door right into the heavenly
realm, the Throne Room of God, to see the things which must take place after this
(see Revelation 4:11).  The door is open because of the blood of Jesus Christ and
He is the door.  All mysteries and secrets are hidden in Jesus Christ and “it is the
glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter. “
Prov. 25:2

    In Isaiah 45:3 it says: “I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches
of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, am
the God of Israel.”

    We are absolutely in the most exhilarating, breath-taking time with the Lord.  He is,
releasing treasures, mysteries and secrets, not new to Him, but new revelations to
us.  He is also handing out the skill to understand. For a times such as this, He is
opening the ancient book so to speak.

    Daniel 19:22 says: “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to
    “Ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and
spiritual understanding: that you may have a walk worthy of the Lord… (Col. 1:9-10).

    “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which
you do not know.”  Jeremiah 33:3 The Lord is asking us to call to Him and He will
show us even the inaccessible things.  The word “might” in this passage also
means inaccessible, “well-guarded” and hidden. He is revealing to us the well-
guarded things when we press into Him and do not quit in our fervent pursuit.

    Hebrews 11:39-40 “And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith,
did not receive the promise, God having provided something better for us, that they
should not be made perfect apart from us.”

    This passage refers to “these all who died in faith not having received the
promises but having seen them afar off were assured of the, embraced them and
confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.” Hebrews 11:13
    I find much comfort in these passages and a powerful proclamations of what the
Lord has always done and will be doing.  Those faithful ones, who embraced the
promises given to them, knew by faith that those things spoken by God will come to
pass, even so, they did not receive or see the promises fulfilled while still alive in
their mortal bodies.

    The reason why I speak about “ancient streams merging”, is because of the
above scriptures in Hebrews 11. Let me explain what I encountered many years ago
after moving to Jacksonville, Florida.

    My ancestors, the French Huguenots, came to this land in 1562, and desired to do
everything for the glory of God in this place.  Many ended up being martyred,
especially the leader Jean Ribault, who was given the opportunity to turn from Jesus,
but did not.

    Almost ten years ago, when a group of Christians and I went to pray in the area,
where thy first landed, I had an open vision seeing the Huguenots coming to this
land and then being slain.  Then I saw the great cloud of witnesses like sitting on a
balcony in the heavens. In this vision, I watched them witness the Huguenots coming
to these shores, and then being slain. After the physical death of the martyrs, they
became a part of the great cloud of witnesses.

    After that, I saw all of them cheering me on to take the torch to run with the vision;
they were given such a long time ago.
    I received a supernatural strength in order to physically run through the woods,
holding the torch as a prophetic act.  There have been other incidences, where the
Lord directed me, to pick up the revelations and mandates given by God to others
many centuries ago.  These revelations are part of the “well-guarded” things being
made available by God. This is what I perceive represents the merging together.  
Therefore, together we will accomplish God’s purposes on this earth.  After all we
want to see: His kingdom come, His will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.”

    In 2010 the Lord opened a door for me to preach and minister in Honfleur,
Northern France. The very place, were the Huguenots embarked on their journey to
Jacksonville, FL so many centuries ago.  I sensed this was like a “full circle”
incidence for me, and a huge witness to what the Lord has ordained for me to do.

    Isn’t it time for you to pick up and run with your mandate?


    “And He Himself gave some to be apostles, prophets, some evangelists, and
some pastors, and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of
ministry for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the
faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a prefect man, to the measure of
the stature of the fullness of Christ.  That we should no longer be children tossed
to and fro carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the
cunning craftiness, of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow
up in all things into Him who is the head – Christ –from whom the whole body,
joined and knit together by what every part does its share, causes growth of the
body for the edifying of itself in love.”
