This is a Mind Blower ......... I hope you can handle it, I don't know where I am with all this

David Van Koevering:
"Keys to Taking Your Quantum Leap"

Years ago, as a young scientist and inventor, I worked with Dr. Bob Moog and together we gave the music world the first performance keyboards called Moog synthesizers. I learned to work with electrons and photons - tiny elements that are so small they can't be seen! Yet these invisible elements cause all electronic devices to work. This project caused me to ask the question, "Is there more to our universe than what I can perceive through my senses?"

My search to learn more about physical reality and how it works led me to discover that quantum physics identifies a large part of our universe to be non-physical. I began to realize that the universe is greater than science has discovered, or can explain. Through quantum physics and spiritual revelation, the Holy Spirit confirmed keys to understanding physical reality. As you read this article, allow the Holy Spirit to let you hear more than I say.

There is a Non-Physical Reality

My studies in quantum mechanics led me to the works of Max Planck, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, and others. Here I learned that everything we see is part of a vast ocean of infinitesimally small subatomic particles. Under certain conditions, these subatomic structures also take on the properties of invisible waves. When I learned that these waves, or particles which make up all matter, cause that matter to blink into existence by being observed by the experimenter, I was shaken to my core.

How could it be that these invisible elements, which make up all matter, can be changed from particles to waves by how they are observed? This reality is beyond our human consciousness and our five senses. Or is it? All of these particles and/or waves appear to be connected. How can it be that every atomic and subatomic element is hooked up? Is this invisible world a part of the spiritual realm?

I suppose the duality of matter being waves or particles and how quantum mechanics attempts to explain this revolutionary idea changed me forever. It caused me to do my own research, which led to the convergence of quantum mechanics and my personal spiritual revelation. I was about to take a quantum leap!

1 Corinthians 1:28 says, "...God (has) chosen...things which are not (the invisible) to bring to nought things which are (the visible)." This Scripture makes sense only when you understand it at the atomic and subatomic level. Everything is made up of atoms, which are frequencies of energy. These frequencies of energy are the voice of Jesus causing all things to be! Atoms are made up of subatomic particles, and subatomic particles are made up of superstrings (which are toroidal vortices of energy). Superstrings are tiny donut shaped packets of energy that spin at a frequency - or sing as in a pitch.

None of this is real in this dimension because they exist only in a state of possibilities until someone observes them. Then, at that observation, the potential becomes a thing - a particle or a wave. This quantum wave collapse, caused by observation, is called popping a qwiff. This is your first step to taking a quantum leap. You can see or observe a God qwiff (something God shows you that is not yet real in this dimension) and, by observing or popping that qwiff, cause that potential to become your reality. Be careful what you see; you are going to get it! Be careful what you say; you will get that, too!

Light is Slowing Down

The spiritual realm operates above the speed of light. The physical realm - this dimension - has been shaped to its current limits by the falls of both Lucifer (see Luke 10:18) and man in the Garden of Eden (see Genesis 3:7). When man fell, the speed of light slowed down. In the beginning, when God spoke the universe into existence, His entire bandwidth of glory was made physical. From His glory (all frequencies) and His voice (all frequencies expressed) all light, energy, and matter became.

It is believed that the speed of light is 186,000 miles per second. Physicist Barry Setterfield, mathematician Trevor Norman, and Canadian mathematician Alan Montgomery have measured light and proven that the speed of light is slowing down.

That means that light may have been ten to thirty percent faster in the time of Christ; twice as fast in the days of Solomon; and four times as fast in the days of Abraham. My friend Chuck Missler says, "That would imply that the velocity of light was more than ten million times faster prior to 3,000 B.C. This possibility would also alter our concepts of time and the age of the universe. The universe might actually be less than 10,000 years old!" That sounds like a quantum leap to me!

Before the fall, God had created one realm from gravity waves to His glory. This present human realm is up through the electromagnetic spectrum to the speed of light. The interesting point about the speed of light slowing down is that when Lucifer (the bearer of light) rebelled in Heaven and was cursed and cast down - and I believe cast down from the frequencies of God's glory - he lost his bandwidth and fell down from his spiritual consciousness. In the Garden of Eden, when mankind sinned, was cursed in the fall downward, and lost upper bandwidth and spiritual consciousness, light slowed down even more.

Other Biblical events suggest that the cosmos lost bandwidth. Noah's flood is such an example. Light slowed down to cause just the right frequencies for the rainbow (see Genesis 9:12-17). At Nimrod's Tower of Babel, mankind lost the upper bandwidth to communicate (see Genesis 11:7).

Jesus Himself told His disciples that they will get their upper bandwidth back. In John 16:13 He said, "..when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth...and He will show you things to come." Jesus is saying, "I want to show you your future. You can know My will and My plan for your life, although right now, you don't have the upper bandwidth to see or observe it. But when the Spirit of truth comes, He will give you the upper bandwidth to see things to come!"

Here is a quantum leap for someone: If you know something coming from your future, let's say a vision, a revelation, a desire, or even a creative idea, that information has to move faster than the speed of light to reach you. You can and must know your God-given assignment. Information flowing from your future possibilities is waiting for you to see - to observe - and call those things that are not as though they are. The quantum leap of knowing your purpose and assignment is waiting as a God qwiff for you to pop!

Matter is Frequency Being Spoken by Jesus

When God spoke and all the frequencies of His glory became manifest, the cosmos became! From the tiniest vibrating superstring that is causing or singing the atoms that make up the table of 103 elements, all the way through everything the Hubble telescope sees, are the vibrating frequencies of Jesus' voice.

Colossians 1:16-17 says, "For by Him all things were created that are in Heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible... He is before all things, and in Him all things consist (exist or are sustained)." The phrase "He is before all things" means that He is outside of our time. Jesus said to John the Revelator that He was and is the Alpha (beginning) and Omega (ending). Jesus is outside our concept of time in His eternal now and is causing all things to be.

When we consider creation and all things eternal, our false concepts regarding time and matter limit our understanding. Receive the concept that Jesus is outside of our time and calendar, looking in. He is observing. He is sustaining all things in this nanosecond (one billionth of a second) and is singing the frequencies or vibrations of your body. If He didn't, you would dissolve! Your electrons, particles, and subatomic structures are blinking in and out of existence. You think you are a solid object, but quantum mechanics has confirmed that all subatomic particles - the stuff you are made of - are blinking in and out of this reality.

Enoch was walking so closely with God in the Spirit that "he was not, for God took him" (see Genesis 5:24). Jesus simply stopped blinking Enoch into this realm! How close are you to Jesus Christ? How far away is your healing, your deliverance, or your miracle? He is close, for in Him you live and move and have your being.

In the next nanosecond, He sustains you or sings your frequency set. Understand that your healing or miracle is within the next nanosecond! In the blink of a nanosecond, He can cause your healing. Observe your healing, your miracle, your deliverance, and be filled with all Truth by observing the future God has for you. Take that quantum leap!

When we understand that we are being created in Christ by His causing, or by Him singing our song, our intimacy with Him will change. His song of creation was not something He did 16 billion years ago. He is causing you now! Because the speed of light has slowed down, because we have our upper bandwidth back, and because He is sustaining us every nanosecond, the act of creation is happening now! Take your quantum leap into His eternal now.

All Matter Has Memory - Your Words are Being Recorded

As a scientist and inventor, I have developed various memory retrieval systems. In the 1970s, I developed a laser optical music system to store sounds on silver oxide film and play the sounds back with keyboards, using modulated light beams. I was amazed when I found the Scripture in Joshua 24:27 that says, "And Joshua said unto all the people, 'Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the LORD which He spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest you deny your God.'"

Was this Old Testament quantum physicist saying that matter has memory? Is this man, who called for and observed the sun standing still in the heavens, telling us that the stone is listening? This is the man who sounded a frequency that cancelled the frequencies of matter in the walls of Jericho, thereby dissolving their atomic lattice structure with his shout and song. Did this man say the rocks are listening?

Jesus said the same thing. Joshua said the stone could record, and Jesus said in Luke 19:40 that the stones would cry out. Habakkuk 2:11 says, "For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answer it." I came to understand that all matter has memory. The Bible says that matter can record and it will play back. How can these things be?

As I studied both quantum theory and Scripture, revelation came. I learned that Gerald Feinberg, a physicist at Columbia University, named a certain subatomic particle, that he found in Einstein's math, after the Greek word tachys, meaning "swift." He called this superluminal particle a tachyon. This particle moved faster than light!

The tachyon is not looked upon favorably by physicists. If tachyons can be proven to exist and anything that moves faster than light can be found, scientists will have to explain how something can appear before its cause. For instance, if a scientific test was set up to look for this elusive faster-than-light tachyon, and the computer started at 12:00 noon counting forward through the test sequence, the test result wouldn't be at 12:01 or later. It would show the effect before the cause at 11:59 or earlier. Scientists don't have computers that count backwards and don't accept results that appear before the cause.

But wait. Two thirds of your Bible got to mankind before the event or cause! All prophecy is the result of facts before the event. All creativity comes before the actual physical reality! What is a vision? What is a word of knowledge? It is seeing, knowing, getting information before the causation. There is no other source of creativity than the Holy Spirit. All truth comes to man through the only source of truth we have, and that is the Holy Spirit. When you see your future, you are getting information faster than the speed of light through a means of streaming superluminal particles. The barrier of light speed is bridged from this subluminal realm to the higher bandwidth of the superluminal realm by the Holy Spirit.

Something like Gerald Feinberg's tachyon exists in all matter. It is just above, or faster than the speed of light. We know it's there because we find the results of such in the very fact of prophecy, or in the concept of words of knowledge, and even our Bible itself. These are proofs that the potential and possibilities of future promises or information is flowing to us. The superluminal tachyon-like connector exists!

That faster-than-light particle in all matter receives and remembers or records photons that shine on matter as in the photoelectric effect. Modulated photons go into all matter, reside in the vortex of superluminal faster-than-light particles, and knock electrons out. This photoelectric effect is how my modulated light musical instruments worked in the 1970s. That is how CD players and DVD players work now.

Today, it is not difficult to believe that matter has memory, because most of us have tiny memory sticks or memory cards that record or store information from our cameras and computers. Information flowing into matter and recalling it is commonplace. Photons from all light sources reflect from your body and off your belongings. Those information carrying photons go into all matter, including walls, your ring, and your watch. This information - even what we say and think - is modulating or moving through the connectedness of all atomic structures. This modulated photon goes in and electrons come out. That is why Joshua said, "This stone has heard." Every word, action, and deed done in the flesh has been recorded.

This is where yesterday went! It is all recorded in matter and will someday be played back. This is how evil and curses reside in places or things. Even though matter has recorded everything, your prayer in the name of Jesus can take the effect of Christ's blood - His blood that is eternal and beyond time - and cancel out all evil, sin, and past sin's memory from matter. Oh, that is a quantum leap for many! You can speak to and erase from places all curses and evil in Jesus' name.

Have you fixed your past? Have you removed all curses? Have you blessed the things you own? Have you blessed your house, office, car, belongings, money, computer, and phone? Are those things and places free from your past actions, words, and thoughts? You or someone else can speak a blessing or curse on your things. Somebody is about to take a quantum leap!

Seeing Your Future as God Sees it is Quantum Faith

Hebrews 11:1 says that faith is the substance. It is the invisible substance from which your physical world was and is being created by Jesus Christ. Annette Capps said, "God used faith substance and word energy to create the universe. He spoke and the vibration (sound) of His words released (caused) the substance that became the stars and planets."

God's future potential and all the promised possibilities constantly flow through the Holy Spirit into you. Noise on my circuit limits my ability to hear His voice and see His future for me. The noise in my inner man is not always sin; my noise can be my gift, my ability, even that special way I am put together and wired. I can become so busy-noisy that I am out of phase with God's voice and vision for me.

As I get quiet and become still, I can hear and see what God's future is for my reality. Psalm 46:10 says, "Be still and know that I am God..." My future comes from God's possibilities and potential. I pop God's qwiffs and my reality is! What an awesome quantum leap!

Creating Protected Places: Is Your Home Protected?

When we understand that matter has memory and that every good or evil action, word, or thought is recorded, it is our responsibility to remove, purge, and release evil memory. I'm also talking about evil memory that came to you through things you inherited. What about evil acts and words that were spoken over you? Or evil artifacts that are in many homes and places? Imagine what evil is recorded in public places, courthouses, jails, even schools, and the stuff in these places!

The Passover in the book of Exodus, chapter 12, is the story of a protected place. The blood of the Passover lamb was not put on the firstborn child. It was not applied to a person. Rather, the blood was put on the side posts and upper door posts of a place. Anoint your home, your office, your car, even public places in the name of Jesus. The Passover was an event where the children of God looked forward to their Messiah and His blood for deliverance and protection. By anointing your places and belongings with oil in the name of Jesus, you can protect them and connect our Savior's timeless blood over your places. What a quantum leap!

Elsewhen Teaching: Where Yesterday Went and Tomorrow Comes From

Elsewhen is the title of my book. This is an interesting word. Elsewhere means over there, or a place out of town, or out there somewhere. Elsewhen is your consciousness out of time here and into God's upper bandwidth of cosmic consciousness. It is to disconnect from things of this realm and become connected to ideas, visions, and input that comes directly from your Savior, Designer, and Creator.

Elsewhen is the experience of knowing without having to learn or push yourself to know. It is to so behold Jesus Himself, that you comprehend the root of wisdom through the Holy Spirit.

You herein have come to understand that there is a non-physical reality from which this universe and everything in it flows. Jesus Himself is causing your body, your spirit, and everything you have to blink into your reality. Light is slowing down and there is upper bandwidth and knowledge through the Holy Spirit. All the things of life and their purpose for you and your assignment are frequencies being spoken by Christ Himself at this very nanosecond.

Matter has memory, and you can change everything that has been recorded by what you observe, by the words you declare, or by the curses you remove and release in the name of Jesus. You can create protected places by anointing with oil and speaking blessings with your words of faith. Where will you start? What quantum leaps have come up in your spirit? You have been given a new elsewhen cosmic consciousness. Pop those God qwiffs and cause upper bandwidth to change your reality.

The Call in Washington DC

I have mentioned that there is a civil war brewing in Pentecost. I won't take sides but I am in favor of the Call in Washington DC.

I guess that places me on a side. I'm ok with that.

Todd Beery of the Chicago IHOP is there. He is Friends of Lou Engle and Mike Bickle. Todd is my friend. I am watching on GOD TV.

I believe this matters. Hundreds of Thousands of People have gathered on the mall in DC, mostly in their 20s, passionate about taking back America from the evil one. Even Mike Huckabee is part of this. That might help you understand why and how I am sold out for this kind of outreach. That might also help you understand why I believe Mike would have made a good President.

I stand with God against false religion. Even those who have made Pentecost a sham. A false religion. I won't point you to websites that have angry faux Pentecostals who have come against this. They are angry mean and nasty.

it's time to take a stand. No matter who it irritates.

Jerry Garcia missed his calling

Last night I was at the House of Prayer.

The band started at 7pm and quit playing at 10.

I mean, non stop.

Prayers were made, the band played. The musicians have become so skilled at working together in spontaneous worship moving in an out of music and lyrics.

Just like the Greatful Dead used to do.

I never saw the Greatful Dead in concert but I have heard recordings. This sounds like that.

Jerry Garcia would have loved last night if he were still alive.

Maybe we might have asked him to play.

Why Leaders are Under Attack

The blogosphere is buzzing about Lakeland. See I told you so. It's everywhere.

I thought you would want to see what a Prophet of God says about this:

“And suddenly it was as though a heavy, heavenly veil was drawn back in the Spirit realm…

…and I heard Lucifer’s spine-chilling cry: ‘It is TIME!’ And the hordes of hell resounded with a great and terrible cry: ‘It is TIME.’ And as Lucifer turned to his fallen princes, I could hear his malicious hiss: ‘IT IS TIME TO TARGET THE CHAMPIONS.’

‘The Father knows that these very ones who were drawn to Him because they knew the very weakness of their own souls – like the woman whose story I promised would be told eternally.’

I spoke. ‘The woman who washed your feet?’

Jesus smiled tenderly. ‘Those who have forgiven much, love much. In this last generation many came to Us from the greatest ensnarements and bondages. Once they saw Our great love for them they became Our greatest champions and bondservants, for their gratitude for receiving such a redemption, was unfathomable.

‘These are the ones who have become close and tender with Me – who would follow Me unto death.

‘But if they would follow you unto death, Lord Jesus – and they hear your voice – then how could they fall to seducing spirits?’ I asked, that chill gripped me again, sensing the answer.

‘Every weakness that these ones experienced in their lives…’ His expression was so grave ‘…every fissure, each wound, each broken place that lies unhealed – these satanic powers and principalities and demons shall now target.

‘Many, many of My children did not receive healing of their minds, emotions and souls in this last generation. And because they have lived in the Household of God for years, many do not even realize that these scarred places exist.

‘These last days assignments have been meticulously strategised and that is the very strength of their evil – they have been tailor-made to each of My champions. They know the urgent driving unmet needs of the soul: the generational bondages of each individual called by Me to impact this generation; the lack of nurturing; the deep unhealed rejections and hurts of the emotions; the fatherlessness; the need for affirmation; the desire to belong; the deep isolations - all of which when not met in Me – now have laid the perfect snare for the assignments of the enemy.

‘My champions shall now know a violent satanic assailing against their minds. Any thought not taken captive shall be a thought that can take violent root in their soul to lead to ensnarement. Anything from their past that has been dealt with by their own strength and not by My Spirit, shall become a snare to them and can leave them vulnerable to the enemy of their souls. Any habit not ruthlessly dealt with and put to the cross, when assigned with the searing heat of temptation, will breed and rapidly multiply.

‘The greatest weapon to survive the onslaught is for My children to take up their cross and to follow Me. To take up the cross daily and to die to everything in their souls and their mind which opposes My truth. To let go of that lower life which is the flesh and continually mortify their minds and bodies and to put to death the deeds of the flesh. My children have forgotten the power of the cross. They have thought that to die once is sufficient but the spirit of the world, with its carnality and selfishness loosed upon this present generation is so strong in these evil days – that it is only in a continual daily crucifying of their flesh that they will indeed be able to withstand temptation.”

Pretending to be Rush Limbaugh

His book "See I Told You So", a best seller, not like Nancy Pelosi's book, has lots of things he said in the past and as they come to be he is famous for saying, "See, I told you so".

A year ago I became very disenchanted with John Edwards. I called him a phony. I said he was dangerous.

Now a year later it's all true. Men of his kind must never be allowed in power. They are deceivers.

You can read my take on Edwards from a year ago.

It's still true.

See, I told you so!

Oh, and one other thing, I don't think the Bill and Hillary Express is done, yet. Look for Riots in Watts.

The Totalitarian Face of Green

Hidden on the very very last page of Today's Wall Street Journal is a column relating this story:
"Garbage collectors would inspect San Francisco residents' trash to make sure pizza crusts aren't mixed in with chip bags or wine bottles under a proposal by Mayor Gavin Newsom." Isn't that what homeless people do -- rooting around in other people's garbage? If Bay Area residents are caught failing to separate the plastic bottles from the newspapers, according to the newspaper story, they could face fines of up to $1,000.............

A new game called Climate Crime Cards urges kids to spy on and keep an online record of their family's environmental faux pas -- noting when their parents fail to turn off the TV, plug in too many appliances or use the clothes dryer on a sunny day.............

Do-gooders also once wanted to "celebrate diversity," but total conformity seems to be the aim of those in Seattle these days, where the city has started putting green tags on garbage cans of homeowners who don't recycle. Enthusiasts boast that there is a very positive "Scarlet Letter" effect to subjecting noncompliers to public scorn. So you can almost hear the kitchen conversations: "Jimmy, I don't want you playing with the Williams boys anymore; their family doesn't recycle." But wait, aren't these the same ACLU members who oppose public registries of multiple sex offenders?.................................

In reality, household recycling is mostly about absolving the guilt of Lexus liberals who just hate themselves for enjoying an affluent 21st-century lifestyle. The aim seems to be less saving nature than building self-esteem.

And it has worked. Too well. I can barely tolerate the proud recyclers, hybrid-car owners and "save the polar bear" button-wearers who smother us with their self-righteousness. A few weeks ago I was at the house of some friends, and I accidentally tossed a plastic Gatorade bottle into the glass recycling bin. You would have thought that I had made a pass at their daughter.

This whole thing is a religion of sin and guilt and sinners must be tied to a stake and burned.

We are in such deep weeds. These people are dangerous.

Dis-included Decision

I have been thinking a great deal about a post by a fellow blogger. I referred to it earlier.

The issue was that the church that she was attending spent the whole time on families and children and little on single people or young adults.

I guess I think this is more about decision than dis-inclusion.

The church has decided to target families and children. That's a ministry choice. Probably one made carefully.

The "Payoff" in souls is much higher than trying to reach 30 something singles.

Besides there are many places of contemplation and prayer for singles to identify in. I spend a fair amount of time in the House of Prayer in our area. Mostly single. Not me. But mostly.

In Kansas City too.

So, I guess while I understand the sense this writer had of being dis-included, It was not targeted towards her. Churches can't possibly be all things to all people.

There is a church in Tulsa Oklahoma who's total focus is kids. So is Bill Wilson in NYC.

SO, find another venue, they have made a choice, a decision. And when I consider that most people come to Jesus in youth and seldom after, it's a good one.

Lincoln Traps Another Scheffert

Son Kevin is in Lincoln NE to apprentice his new passion. Coffee. He is to become a coffee Evangelist.

Before he went there I suggested that Lincoln was a nice town. Pshaw he said. Lots of stuff and a college town. Pshaw.

Now he's there. Kinda likes it Timmy.

I don't know for sure but with two of Peggy's brothers living there and my sister Sue less than an hour away maybe he has found a Nebraska home.

If I only knew someone from Seward who could tell him all the really important sights to see in Lincoln. We'll see.

Todd Bentley and Lakeland Revival dialed back

I got notice from God TV that they are not broadcasting the revival from Lakeland. I knew that. I had checked. I also was told of family issues the Bentley's are working thru. And then, from other ports of call people have been asking me if I saw this coming, this problem, this hiatus.


Back on June 17th I prophesied what I believed God was doing and about to do.

I prophesied:

Todd Bentley and the Lakeland revival is a precursor to what God wants to do. It is a breaker. It is breaking off, breaking in and breaking thru the religious infrastructure of the land. God never modifies he always recreates.

I saw all the flaws, tattoos, weirdness, radical-ness and everything every heresy hunter sees. But I saw something else. I saw people needing a touch from God getting it. People needing healing receiving. I saw unity (initially). I saw religious demons screaming. If you google Todd Bentley you will get a full load of religious demons screaming.

Todd Bentley isn't Jesus. In fact, I'll go out on a limb here. This is going to die out. There's something more coming. Something bigger. Something even less palatable to religious folks. God is breaking out again.

This is the beginning of the Beginning.

I know where I want to be when it all comes down. This looks very much like a dream of revival God gave me 12 years ago.

It's radical, fresh, weird and wonderful. Peculiar.

Isn't that Just Like GOD?

Now, crane your neck, look up expectantly for what God is about to do next. It will be even more radical. I hope you are ready. The back of Religion is about to be broken.

Miles to Go

Years ago when he was in his late 60's and early 70's my uncle Earl, the man who raised me, my dad, (confused yet?) would say, "I have more ideas than I'll ever get done". 

I know that feeling. 

So do I.    Time is short, it screams by, and I have more to do than ever.  I don't dare retire or slow down.  Too much to do and too little time.

So, I'll back away slowly from the keyboard for a few days.

I've got miles to go before I sleep and promises to keep.

Getting up and WALKING OUT of CHURCH

A Pentecostal Woman I have been in communication from time to time with has written a piece about her disgust with a Church service. It was a large AG church in North Dakota.

She is a member her whole life of an AG church. She used to attend the same Church (not at the same time) as I did in Fargo.

Her story of getting up in disgust and walking out of a Church Service has generated a great deal of comment. She is single. She feels set aside. If you are a pastor you need to read this and ponder how close to driving people out the door we all come some times.


How can I find the Church I'm Looking for??

A person called AJ from Sycamore IL wrote and asked a question I am not yet ready to answer well. AJ asked:
I live in Sycamore, IL. I am wondering if there is a prophetic church like the ones you write about, in this area. I am not interested in this confessional type of worship you write about, though. Also, I would like to know what you mean about the 'true prophetic flow.' Is this something new? I come from a strict non-denominational Christian church. I am looking for a change, but I would like to find myself in a Bible based contemporary Christian worship with GOOD music. Any help would be appreciated.
I have pondered an answer to his question since finding a church that helps refill the leaks in our souls (a Holy Ghost Gas Station) is difficult.

Some churches would say to AJ: our style, our methods, our traditions, our example is what you need. Even if you don't like it, it's good for you. Kind of like Holy Cod Liver Oil. Fills you up some but tastes horrid.

Others that I could not recommend are churches full of candy cane, snow cones and popcorn. Filling but not nutritious. Fun, even exciting, but no meat.

To understand what AJ is asking, let me parse the question. AJ wants a church that is:

Bible Based:
What I hear him saying is that the dependence on the word of God is foremost. Not teaching or preaching that is 7 ways to have a better complexion. Some of the preaching I see from famous preachers on TV is little more than rewarmed motivational speakers a la Tony Robbins. Or a Home Depot Commercial, "You can do it, we can help". AJ wants to hear what God is saying thru his word to us TODAY! Leave out the seminary jargon. Make clear the law and gospel depths I need to find. Help me (AJ would say) to find peace with God and find my Destiny and purpose in Him. Unlock the riches in the word and then help me to learn to do so.

Lose the robes and all the trappings of tradition, help me walk into church and not feel like I have to change to take part. I don't want to have to go thru a transformation to come from the world I live in 6 days a week to enter the one you exhibit in your church. I'm not looking for trappings, I'm looking for Jesus in the world but not of it. I don't want a Disneyland experience like main street that looks beautiful and clean but in reality is all a front. I'm here to encounter the real Jesus, help me do so without the encumbrance of your media generated packaging. Make it real.

Christian Worship
I love God. I want to worship him. I want to experience him. I want to sense his presence. I want to know him thru my participation. I want to be surprised by him. I want you to help me discover and encounter him in a fresh way. I'm a Christian and I want to Worship my King. That's why I'm here. That's why I came to be a part of your service. Give me a chance to do so. Help me engage. Let me come to the throne of grace. When we pray, communicate along with me the secrets and the pains in my soul. Don't read the prayer. Don't Pray some wrote prayers. Go deep when we pray. Help me find true release as we talk to our Daddy.

GOOD Music
I want music that speaks the language of my Spirit. I want music that I can sing inside all week. I want music that is engaging to me. I don't need to hear the top 40 from the Christian Music Station in worship. I want music that as we sing I see Jesus. I like music from the 80's and 90's that I grew up with. I know all those songs. If I have to learn to sing another form it's going to be a stretch. Let me learn a little at a time. A hymn now an then might be a good experience but it's going to take me a while to get used to it. Find music that we will sing in Heaven before the Throne of God. Holy. Worthy. Blessed be the Lamb that was Slain. It's out there. Once in a while I hear it. Not on the radio. Friends might have a CD. Let's enter in and go deep.

True Prophetic Flow
AJ would say, I don't know what it is but it sounds intriguing. Maybe that's what I want in a church. Something that intrigues me. If I can come to church and sometimes hear from a person who speaks in behalf of God directly to me to encourage me or build me up I would find that worthwhile. If I could get a new understanding spiritually because of a prophetic word I would want that. If I might even apprehend a promise of God for my destiny, my future thru a prophetic word that would be wonderful. One word from GOD might change my life. Not all the time, surprise me, help me come with expectation. What I don't want is that no prophetic word is EVER allowed to come forth. If it's all teaching and preaching I can lose hope. I need to be fed by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God and that includes the prophetic flow as well as good teaching and preaching.

OK, AJ, Based on that I'm going to go against my policy of NOT recommending Churches. I have only attended a few churches in Sycamore or DeKalb. Two come to mind. The Vineyard in DeKalb. It's just off state street downtown. AND. The little Church of God in town. You'll have to look them up in the yellow pages.

I can't tell you if they are the kind of church you are looking for. I won't list which ones are not for sure. These two at one time or another were commended to me.

And you are welcome to join us at the corner of LaFox Road and Rte 38 Just west of Geneva IL. It's about a 25 minute drive from Sycamore. We aren't there (what you see you are looking for) yet. I have hope. God gave me a vision long ago of the Church that looks like what I have parsed from your question. I don't know of any others. From time to time I go to Faith Center in Rockford on South Main Street to enter into such a Church. It's pretty close to the ideal. There are others. If you are hungry, you will find it.

If you come visit us, ask for me. I'll be there. Come on the 24th about 9 on Sunday. I'll look for you. Maybe God will tell me something about what he has for you? I don't know. There is no perfect church, but what you have outlined is a pretty good start.
Let's pray God will manifest himself in this way here and now. We need God for Real in this area. Even so come Lord Jesus.

The Terror of the Prophetic

The other night while with other prophets talking till the wee hours of the morning about what is going on in the Spirit I mentioned how sometimes when I have a clear powerful word for a person I am fearful of giving it.

Sometimes when I give such a word it all comes to pass even when I didn't hope or want it to. I want good for people but sometimes a warning is God's best.

It seems like God will carry out his prophetic word He has chosen to give thru me even if it isn't what I might have wanted to say or do.

Then Prophet Bruce handed me a Bible and asked me to read this passage from Isaiah 44.

24 This is what the Lord says—

your Redeemer and Creator:

“I am the Lord, who made all things.

I alone stretched out the heavens.

Who was with me

when I made the earth?

25 I expose the false prophets as liars

and make fools of fortune-tellers.

I cause the wise to give bad advice,

thus proving them to be fools.

26 But I carry out the predictions of my prophets!

By them I say to Jerusalem, ‘People will live here again,’

and to the towns of Judah, ‘You will be rebuilt;

I will restore all your ruins!’

27 When I speak to the rivers and say, ‘Dry up!’

they will be dry.

28 When I say of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd,’

he will certainly do as I say.

He will command, ‘Rebuild Jerusalem’;

he will say, ‘Restore the Temple.’”


I suddenly was able to see by scripture that this fear and trembling is well founded. I want never ever to give a word to a person, a Church or a Ministry that isn't directly from the Throne as it Speaks. I want to be accurate and encouraging.

The Lord carries out the words of His Prophets for His Name's Sake. That terrifies me no end. I will not take the name of the Lord in Vain. If I ever give you a word you can trust it or God will take me out. That is the Terror of the Prophetic.

Prophetic Word about Recieving God's Promises

After spending a few days in an electrifying prophetic atmosphere with other prophets I received a fresh revelation of the Purposes and Blessings of God that may change the way you view your life. It has mine.

Saturday morning after 3 days in this conference and a night without sleep Friday night I heard the Lord say:
“When you are out of alignment with me you will miss the fulfillment of my promises to you.”

We all know Matt 7:13-14. They are verses we have all used to convince people to live right.
13"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

And of course every football fan has seen the John 3:16 sign in the end zone.

This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. The Message

Now if you struggle with the message because it doesn’t exactly sound like the KJV, try the actual literal original language to English literal translation:
16for God did so love the world, that His Son -- the only begotten -- He gave, that every one who is believing in him may not perish, but may have life age-during.
Young’s literal Translation.

Let me tie this together the way the word of the Lord came to me Saturday.

“My blessings and promises are without repentance, I send them your way all the time, they flow from the throne. When you are in line with the pathway straight from the throne you are able to apprehend them, if you should step out of the path you will miss them. The promises and prophecies concerning your life that you long for so much can pass right by you if you are out of alignment with ME. You end up out of alignment from rebellion, sin, pride, unbelief and fear. Anything that is not the straight narrow path from and to the gate to my throne will cause you to go out of alignment with me and into alignment with another purpose. This isn’t about salvation of your soul, this isn’t about eternal life. This isn’t even about forgiveness of sin. That was paid for at the cross and you are secure in that. This is about you missing the purposes and destiny I have for you. I have great plans for you. They are without repentance. They are a gift. You can thwart them however by your rebellion. I gave my Son that your destiny and purpose need not be destroyed if you just believe and stay in alignment with ME. You can have a full life on this side of the veil and on the other. Examine yourself and see if there is any way that is out of alignment in your life and see if there is anything that isn’t as it should be. Not for the salvation of your soul, to enter into the life giving provision of blessing I have for you.”

We all know Psalm 139:24
And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

This is that way. The narrow path from you to the gate of the throne room and from the gate of the Throne room to you. His eternal purpose for you while you were still in your mother’s womb is constantly being downloaded and directed toward you. It’s just that sometimes we are out of line to receive or recognize it.

It’s like the crosshairs in a rifle scope. It looks directly down the pathway, as long as you are on the path you are in his crosshairs of prophetic fulfillment, blessing and provision. When you step out of the field of view he still sends it your way, it just misses you. You were out of alignment.

Peggy and I have determined not to miss God. Or more important not to have God miss us.

We have made some choices on Sunday after considering this prophetic word to change some things in our lives. I won’t tell them to you. They are none of your business.

You have some too.

Consider what God may be saying to you about getting back in his sights. He wants to send it on down. Get right in the center of his crosshairs.

What the USA will look like IF Barak H Obama becomes President

I live in Illinois, I love this state for many reasons. One of not is how "Well" it's governed. When I moved here in 1986 every single constitutional position was held by a Republican. The state worked a little bit better.

Now, the opposite is true. Republicans hold NO seats Whatsoever in the state.

The state is in total disarray. Destroyed. Collapsing. "Escape from New York" nearly. Circling the drain.

Carl of The Chicago Boyz has written a pretty good description of how bad it has become in IL and how likely the USA will look if BHO wins. It will give you cause to ponder how bad it can be. The most interesting thing is his disgust not only for the Demorats but for the insipid Republicans as well.
