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.
