Shake Yourself

Hello all at GWOD,
WOW, the Breaker came in like a bolt of lightening and proved Himself strong at GWOD today (Sunday).  For all who were not present today or maybe just not understanding, all He wanted from us was song and praise.  He has freed us and wanted us to just "Burst through" into his Joy and Blessings receiving this peacefully with no enemy chasing us and then enjoying His Joy, a Rejoicing (Re-Joy-sing!) this causing an even more Radical Praise to Break forth from us!   It took some time for the Body to recognize this but finally most joined in.  However, most is not enough. He wants all of us to join in.  It is not too late, Praise Him now and receive what He has for you.  Did you hear it?  I'll say it again!  Praise Him now and receive what He has for you.  Receive the Living Water, be filled with the Holy Ghost and receive His abundant supply of Provision and Blessings for your every need. The captivity is over.  Let Him Reign. The Scriptures we studied were from Isaiah 52:1-2, 7-12.  Go ahead and read them again and let Him Break in.  

"Awake, Awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.  Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.  How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion.  Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem:for the LORD hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.  The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.  Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the LORD. For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the LORD will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rereward."  
God's Word today reminds me of the promise in Micah 2:12-13 I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold; they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.  The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed  through the gate, and are gone out by it:  and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them.
So the message passed from the mouths of Minister Sorrell, to Co Pastor Lane, to Minister Lane, to Sis. Jefferson, and others and then the "Break Through" happened as Pastor Crowder was making clear everything God was saying to us and showing us what He has already done for us.  He just wants us to receive Him and everything He has for us: His Deliverance, His Strength, His White Linen Clothes, His Comfort, His Provision, His Guidance, His Protection (front and back!)  So now Awake army of GWOD, shake yourselves from the dust, put on His strength, loose the bands of your neck, you are no longer captive! Move past the "brown mule" and get on your White horse of Victory He has for you.  Jesus suffered, bled, died, and rose again to prepare the way for you.  So receive Him, receive His Blessings and the Mansion of provision for your every need specially prepared for you here on this earth as it is in heaven.  Did you hear the feet running today with God's message of good tidings, peace, and salvation.  So break forth GWOD into song and praise again right now and every day and give Him the Radical Praise and Thanksgiving He alone deserves.  When you recognize another "waste place" that needs immediate attention, this could be anything or anybody, always remember you are His vessel and you do not need to go by haste or flight and please do not hide under the juniper tree, but pass through the gate for the LORD will go before you and He will be your rereward.  He will direct you in what needs to be done in yourself and in helping others to be saved.  Bless Him, go ahead, Bless Him now, your enemy has been scattered.  Did you hear Pastor Crowder's words today?  "God is building you up now and He has brought you out of bondage."  Some of you are saying 'Well, I don't see it.'  Just Believe His Word, shake the dust off, arise (get up!) and sit down (rest in His Power!) and Praise Him and see His Salvation.  As Co Pastor McCarty pointed out, if the dust is on a clean surface then the dust can be easily shaken off.  If the dust sits for a time on a surface it becomes crusty and needs to be washed off.  So shake it off immediately and stay clean.
I love you all very much.  Let's remember to get to know each other better.  Did you speak with others today to get to know them better?  How about your own family?  Did you speak with strangers this week and show the love of God?  I'm working on it and I really need your help and God's help with this.  Come and talk to me too!  I am grateful for all of you.
Praying for all in Jesus Name.  Remember to diligently seek Him.  He is the I AM.   Stay in His love and anointing and spread it to others.
Sis. Jane

Get Up

Hello all at GWOD,

Wow, what a Powerful move of God again.  Can it get even better?  Yes, it can.  Arise and eat everybody.  Immerse yourselves in what was taught today (Sunday) from Ezek 47:23, Prov 16:1-9 and 1 Kings 19:1-15.  Go over it again and again, act on it, obey it, speak it, believe it, and shout it out loud.  Shout: We're in the Living water having received our inheritance.  We are out from under the Juniper tree.  We have been fed a hot meal and our thirst has been satisfied for the journey.  We're out of the cave and standing up on Mount Horeb receiving the Word of God.  No more "brown mules!"  Jesus already rode the mule triumphantly so we would not have to.  He now wants us on His white horses clothed in fine linen, white and clean and He is leading on His white horse.  So get ready because we have His sure Word that He is coming on a white horse.  He is preparing us as part of His Army and all of His white horses are ready for us to "step up" onto and soar on High with Him in Victory.  So as Pastor Crowder prophesied, "Get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up.  Let Him wash us so we can enjoy His Inheritance."  God knows our weaknesses and in our weaknesses His strength is made perfect (2 Cor 12:9). 

Another very important thing that we all need to work on is what Co Pastor Lane said, "We really don't know each other."  I think it would be nice if we got to know each other more on a personal level one by one or two by two.  That means that just knowing you from over the pulpit or over a church gathering where we whimsically pretend to know each other is not enough.  Really knowing each other takes time and effort, just like getting to know God takes time alone with Him in prayer, in the Word, talking with Him, listening to Him, and really having a relationship with Him.  This does not happen just by observing what we see of Him during the services!  Well, the same in relationships.  Let's not just talk and visit with our favorite few and leave the rest of the body out.  I really want to get to know all of you personally from the Head (Pastor Crowder) to the toe (one of us is the toe) from the youngest baby to the eldest adult, not leaving any out.  I want to meet your family members that don't go to GWOD too.  The Word says to be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth (Acts1:8).  We start at home and then spread out to the world.  We can start with each other right away.

I'm praying for the young lady that was so touched by God today.  Also praying that we will be stronger as a Body - glorious, holy, without spot, wrinkle, blemish or any such thing (Eph 5:27).  I will do my best with God's help to get to know you one by one or two by two in person.  Please help me in this area.  This is where God's strength is made perfect in us.  

If you see anyone sitting or sleeping under their Juniper tree, help them out and point them to Jesus, and let Him do His Work!  Oh, I hear the "still small voice" do you?  I will wrap myself in His Mantle and obey.  Be Blessed and "Get up" and walk in the Spirit.  Arise and Eat.  I love all of you very much.

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.  Rev 19:11-16

Water Check

Hello all at GWOD,

What another wonderful powerful move of God on Sunday!  I have to ask, Well!, how is your Water today?  Have you measured it?  Is it ankle deep, knee deep, or up to the neck so you can freely swim or peacefully float in it? Is it pure and flowing and are you receiving all provision from this Water?  Or is it stagnant?  Maybe is it "dried up." Is this Water carrying you where you need to go and are you experiencing a Washing and a Refreshing from its clean Source God Himself.  Is your water the Living water being Jesus Christ Himself?  Did your day start and continue with a stirring of this water, the Holy Ghost in us?  When stirred did you step in and receive your miracle, your healing, your deliverance, your joy, your renewed relationships, and were you made whole?  

Or maybe you are crying near the fountain feeling used and despised and not knowing what to do next? (Gen 16:7)  Not to worry, God sees you and will help.  God will draw you by His Spirit and direct you to the water, the Living Water that will cause you to never thirst again.  Ask Him to fill you the more with the Holy Ghost.  You may have to pray a bit more, but this Water can be stirred at any moment and it is for all to enjoy at the same time and not just for the one able bodied person that was able to force his way into the water first leaving the others behind, withered, and without hope (John 5:4 - 5:9).  Thank God we don't have to wait for a certain season for the stirring only to have someone else stronger or faster get in the water first. The Holy Ghost is waiting on us, even teaching us and guiding us into all truth, showing us how to receive, how to stir, how to jump in ,where to go, what to do next.  

We are His sheep, so too are we His "fish."  We cannot live without the Source and His Living Water the Holy Ghost in us.  He has called us to be fishers of men.  I once had a Beta fish and somehow it jumped out of its water.  When I came home the fish was lifeless, withered and appeared almost dead.  I immediately put him into the water and he was restored back to health, vibrance, and beauty.  Had I not been there in time, he would have perished.  Oh how I loved that little fish so much and how much more does God love us.  After that experience I made sure his water was just right (clean, right level so he could not jump out)! all this so he could be happy, healthy, thriving, and live out his full years.  

Let's be compassionate and on time as fishers of men, as led by the Holy Ghost, the Comforter who teaches us everything we need to know and shows us things to come (John 14:26, 16:13).  We are connected to the Living Water and each of us can have plenty of that water for the asking.  So again, how is your Water today?  How about tomorrow and each day to come?  God is so Good to us.  As Co Pastor McCarty preached, "Are You Ready for More of His Glory?"  

I love all of you.  Be Washed, Refreshed, Blessed, Healed, Restored, Directed, Taught, and Transformed into His Likeness in Jesus Name and be ye fishers of men by the Living Water in us always connected to the Source and connected to each other.  No man is an Island unto himself being surrounded by water but stuck/stranded and of no value to others.  Is He raining Living Water in your souls thereby reigning in your souls today?  His water is pure, clean, and transforming, unlike the rain water today (Sunday) that left my car and feet very dirty!!!   Praying for all that He takes us deeper into His waters.  See attached photo 

Love, Sis. Jane

Job Experience

Hello all at GWOD,
The teaching on Job's experience on Sunday with Pastor Crowder, Co Pastor McCarty, Sis Mary, and each of your comments and also with the Baptism teaching of Co Pastor Lane left me with Power, Wisdom, and encouragement from God.

What I learned was that God allowed Job to be immensely tested and afflicted, only that Satan could not take his life.  Through his tough testing and finally when God spoke to Him personally (chapter 38-42) Job's eyes were opened and he repented.  His own "righteous" attitude was forgiven by God and he was restored unto God's righteousness and after praying for his three friends, the Lord turned the captivity of Job and gave him twice as much as before.
God can do with us what He desires and not according to what we think are "our rights" or "our own righteousness."   He is the Potter and we are the clay, He is molding us into perfect vessels for His own use (see the photo attached).
By the Power of His Spirit, this is what I am doing first with God and then to whom God puts on my heart (whether it be institutions, groups, individuals etc.) in person or just in my heart as God directs:
1. I'm sorry
2. Please forgive me
3. Thank you!
4. I love you.
Then walking in this freedom and by Faith trusting Him completely with every aspect of my life and by Faith watching to see how He Restores, Fills, and Blesses and uses us in His Kingdom.  Everything that God allows in our lives is for our Good and His Use.
Love you much.
