INTRODUCTION
A PROPHECY FOR YOU

Many of you reading the show notes―or listening to―this podcast will cross paths with a KEY center of influence in the future. You may be sitting on a bench in a park, riding the subway, hiking in the desert, traveling on a plane or walking on the beach.

Your voice is powerful … even when you whisper. God is preparing a KEY figure of influence to receive a message from you … and that message will re-align in the prophetic “wheels of commerce and geopolitics.”

You must take advantage of the situation. Listen to the Holy Spirit. Realize that the Holy Angels―The Watchers―have prepared this meeting at this time. I was on my knees praying … asking the LORD to let me reach the President of the USA … in just a few hours I was able to lead the wife of a KEY governmental official (one of the President’s “right-hand” men) to the LORD.

Another time … at the direction of the LORD … I hitch-hiked to visit a man who was head of all media over an African country. I was able, by God’s grace, to lead him to Christ and to pray for him as he received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. That man―who was in control of ALL MEDIA in that country―placed complete control of the media into the hands of the LORD.

It’s YOUR time: You are about to cross paths with a KEY center of influence!

YOU ARE ABOUT TO CROSS PATHS
WITH A KEY CENTER OF INFLUENCE

~ A MIRACLE PODCAST PRODUCTION ~

YOUR VOICE IS POWERFUL

When you are in tune with the Spirit of God you will hear His voice. His voice will never contradict the Word of God. However, He may impress geopolitical issues upon your heart or mind. Remenber, the Holy Bible tells us that “He will guide you into all truth.”

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” (John 16:13)

Predictive prophecy.

“All truth … and things to come” could include truth about relationships, economy, governments and geopolitics.


YOUR INTELLECT SHOULD BE ANOINTED

You need to study God’s Word to be prepared to give an answer to every man. However … in addition … you should be in grasp of KEY issues influencing the world today. This responsibility is associated with being a good stewardand studentof current events: what is happening NOW that may also affect what will happen in the future.

“Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)

Office of the prophet.

The prophet needs to seek from God the gift of discernment over people, things and situations … and insight into obscure events. Prayer, study of national and international events, and knowledge of prophetic “guideposts” in Holy Scripture bring sharpness to this acumen.

YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE TIMES

To “jump start” you, we will discuss in capsule format a few KEY areas of economic and geopolitical happenings on the horizon today. (For other KEY areas, go to University of Excellence.) This is only a short listing to get you started on your own research.

◘ A great seaport city will be destroyed that will be a center of Muslim economy & Islamic ideology!

Turkey will in due time be the (clandestine) headquarters of the NIO: New Islamic Order.

◘ Currencies like Bitcoin MAY replace the demand for gold and silver in the future. And the general populace of the world (not just governments and banks) will start to demand a one-world currency.

Turkey will converge from “elected rulers” to religious Islamic rulers.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be commonplace … not only in homes … but in government and judicial systems … as well as medicine: then, sports.

◘ Age reversal and youthfulness will be the leading trends. If you study my book, Enhanced Humans: Mystery Matrix, you will see that Brain Machine Interfaces (BMI) will become a high-tech “in body”―in demand―key sector of healthcare.

◘ Healthcare will probably be the KEY factor to facilitate the start of Singularity, where computers out-perform, out-think and out-live humans.

◘ The Israeli-Arab “land for peace” (two state negotiations) with Jerusalem at the center of negotiations … and the Temple Mount where Jews want to build the Third Temple … will become a “must solve” dilemma.

The Jews will build their Temple.

Gift of prophecy.

When you cross paths with the KEY center of influence the LORD has assigned you (remember, the Holy Angels will prepare the right time and place) you can relax and draw upon the Scripture and knowledge that you have retained in your mind and spirit.

Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” (Luke 21:14-15)

HOW GOD BRINGS SUCCESS WITH THE ANOINTING

MUSIC / INTRO

There are many ways God has to bring you success. Many times He or His angels are working ahead of time – or right on time – in unseen ways to deliver you, to prosper you, and to bring you into a place of super productivity.

Remember, God is FOR YOU. If you ever doubt this, look at the cross. If when we were His enemies He loved us so much that He sent His only son to die for us, how much more, now that we are His friends, does He want to make us whole in every area of our lives. (Romans 5:10)

God has every detail of your life covered. If you walk in constant communion with Him – if the Holy Spirit is your best Friend – and if you are involved in kingdom work, then you can expect His VERY BEST for you.

At times, the enemy may try to attack you through fear. Fear is a spirit. Fear is the opposite of love. God is love. Perfect love casts out ALL fear. “There is NO fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.” [1 John 4:18]

Speak to the spirit (demon) of fear; take your authority over it, bind it in Jesus’ name and cast it back to the pit of hell.

MUSIC

Use the Word of God against the enemy: “For God has not given me the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” [2 Timothy 1:7]

There are times when the devil would try to come against you with a protracted period of fear. This may, or may not, involve people, as agents of the enemy. This is a GOOD SIGN. This tells you that what you are doing … or about to do … is scaring him. The enemy is afraid. Since he is a liar, and the father of liars, then you know he is “bluffing you”. Don’t be afraid to “call his hand” just like you would in a game of poker. The difference is that you’re going to use your Heavenly Father’s resources (you have the BEST hand!).

In a situation of protracted period of fear, do the following:

Fast;

Wait on God and listen; then,

Do what God tells you.

You may not even have to do anything. The fast may take care of the situation itself. And, remember: If you walk in constant communion with Him … if the Holy Spirit is your best Friend … and if you are involved in kingdom work, then you can expect His VERY BEST for you. There are many ways God works for you and many of these are “behind the scenes” operations: “covert” if you will.

GOD IS ALWAYS READY TO WORK FOR YOU

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you shall go; I will guide you with my eye.” [Psalm 32:8]

Realize that this promise is both “individual” and “corporate”. God is not only working for YOU, but also for those PEOPLE under your tutelage and leadership. He wants you to KNOW His deliverance, direction, and dynamics: for your sake, as well as the sake of those people under your watch care. 

MUSIC

To make sure we are the recipients of His instruction, teaching, and guidance we need to be open to His leading and to be Spirit controlled. The verse immediately following the one above tells us, “Don’t be like the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding, and whose mouths must be held in with bit and bridle.” [Psalm 32:9] This is why we need to be in God’s Word every day, talking with Him, listening, and sharing our faith with others: to have understanding of His ways and NOT going our own ways.

GOD WANTS TO WORK FOR YOU IF YOU WILL GIVE HIM THE GLORY

In the Book of Judges, Chapter Six, we read that the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord; and the Lord delivered them into the and of Midian seven years. Then they cried out to the Lord and, as a result, God raised up a deliverer named Gideon. Gideon had a band of 32,000 people ready to go to war. But God told Gideon, “The people that are with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, because [your people] Israel will boast in a vain way saying, ‘Our hands won the battle [it wasn’t God]’.” [Judges 7:2]

GOD KNOWS HOW TO WIN YOUR BATTLE – JUST LISTEN TO HIM

The Lord told Gideon, “Whoever is FEARFUL and AFRAID, let him return and depart early … and 22,000 people returned; and there remained 10,000.” Next, the Lord told Gideon, “The people are still too many.” God then had Gideon separate the remaining people into two groups, depending upon how they drank water: if they bowed down upon their knees, or if they put their hand to their mouth and lapped the water with their tongues as a dog laps. God then told Gideon he would save them by the 300 men that lapped, and the other 9,700 were sent home.

You see, God wants to receive the glory for what He does through you, my friend. You do NOT need a lot of big programs, you do NOT need a lot of people, you do NOT need a lot of money. You just need the Spirit of God anointing you and directing you as you obey what He instructs you to do.

MUSIC

GOD CAN GIVE YOU A SIGN THROUGH YOUR ENEMIES

That same night the Lord told Gideon to go down to the host of the enemy because he was going to deliver them into Gideon’s hands. The Lord told Gideon, “But if you are AFRAID to go down then take your servant with you and you shall hear what the enemy says.” One of the enemy soldiers had a dream and Gideon heard him tell another soldier about the dream. The soldier said the dream was about Gideon, a man of Israel, “for into his hand God has delivered us [Midian and all the host].”

That is exactly what happened! That night the Lord gave Gideon and his band of men a GIANT victory. Only 300 with Gideon and they defeated the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east who were in the valley like grasshoppers in multitude; and their camels were without number, as the sand by the sea side for multitude. [Judges 7:12]

Remember: one person plus God is a MAJORITY! Be watchful for those situations where God can invade the enemy through you and where God will receive ALL the glory! The Lord can use those situations to bring deliverance, prosperity, and wholeness to multitudes of people. And God will be glorified because everyone will know you could never do these things on your own: they are MIRACLES!

“But thanks be unto God, which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”  [1 Corinthians 15:57]

EIGHT TWIN STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS & CONTINUED VISION – PART B


I guarantee you success and continued vision! You will not be barren or unfruitful, if you practice what I am teaching you in this series. Also, you will have an abundant entrance into Heaven. Remember, there are rewards in Heaven for your labor of love and faithfulness here on earth.

Jesus wants to be able to say to you when you enter Heaven: “Well done, you good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things; I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of the Lord.” [ Matthew 25:21]

You need continued vision for vitality. The Bible says, “Without a vision, the people perish.” [Proverb 29:18] To be successful in this life and to prepare for life in Heaven . . . and to maintain continued vision so we will be fresh and vibrant . . . there are eight (8) TWIN STRATEGIES to help you.

In the last newsletter we discussed the FIRST TWO TWINS for success and continued vision:

Enthusiastic Desire
PLUS Faith; and,

Decisive Nature PLUS Virtue.

To review these first two twins, see Part A.

We will discuss the next two (2) twins in this newsletter. They are as follows:

Specialized Knowledge PLUS Spiritual Knowledge; and,

Quest for Excellence
PLUS Temperance.

The remaining twins for success and continued vision will be discussed in subsequent ezine teachings.

SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE
plus SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE

If you are going to be used greatly by God, then you will have to make up your mind ahead of time that you are willing to do things . . . and exploits . . . that are out of the ordinary. Yeshua (Jesus) did not fit into the normal mold of man, even though He was God in human flesh. He was a perfect man . . . but he was focused on doing the will of God . . . not the will of man.

Likewise, if you make the decision to do the will of God during your time here on earth, then neither will you will fit into the normal mold of man: you will seem eccentric to the world. The definition of eccentric is as follows: 1. Unconventional and slightly strange; 2. Not placed centrally or having its axis placed centrally. But you see, this definition is from the perspective of what is “normal” and God did NOT call us to be normal by the world’s standards. Rather, the normal Christian life is abnormal to the world.

The origin of the word “eccentric” is from the Greek “ekkentros“: “ek” meaning “out of” plus “kentron” meaning “center,” therefore the meaning of: “out of center.” John Steward Mill gives an insightful comment of truth concerning this:

“Eccentricity has always abounded when and where strength of character has abounded; and the amount of eccentricity in society has always been proportioned to the amount of genius, mental vigor and moral courage which it contained. That so few men now dare to be eccentric marks the chief danger of our time.”

Specialized knowledge is highly dependent upon genius AND mental vigor. The second of these two, mental vigor, can complement what may be lacking in the first of the two: genius.

What is that GREAT THING you want to do for God? Do you have the SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE to attain that goal? Are you willing to sacrifice, study, and research to obtain the knowledge required to complete the task? Don’t be a lazy follower of the Lord. God did not call us to complacency, but rather to excellence. I have been on this planet for several scores of years, and I still spend much time studying and researching to find NEW, BETTER, and MORE PRODUCTIVE ways to reach the world for Messiah and to help my fellow man. Don’t be afraid . . . and never get too old . . . to go back to school for more formal education.

One of the best schools for people to learn MEDIA PRODUCTION, and one which I fully endorse, is Full Sail Real World Education based in Orlando, Florida, USA. They may be contacted by phone at 800.226.7625 or 407.679.6333. FAX to 407.678.0070. You may contact them on the web at WWW.FULLSAIL.COM. Some of their major fields of study are:

Film;
Digital Media;
Recording Arts;
Computer Animation;
Entertainment Business;
Show Production and Touring;
Game Design and Development.

We are living in a day like the Prophet Daniel described where “knowledge shall be increased” and we should take advantage of it to advance the kingdom of God. Daniel, in a passage of scripture dealing with the end times, tells us ” . . . but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” [Daniel 11:32] “Exploit,” in the sense used here, means literally “to do successively unfolding bold, courageous works!”

There are many other ways to influence society and to reach the world for Messiah other than through the internet and social media. And there are many NEW ways to help yourself gain SUCCESS! Pray and ask God to reveal these to you. Then, obey Him and be diligent to study in order to prepare yourself to be used by the Master: to be a good steward.

No amount of SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE, however, will be of significant time value without SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE. No matter how successful we become in life, it will not be of any time value unless we know God personally. If we know God through His Son, Jesus the Messiah, then we have eternal life. [John 3:16] The measure of a man’s success in life is how many of his children make it to Heaven. If we know the Lord, we are living part of our eternal life NOW, while here on earth, and then in Heaven. It will never end!

Yeshua taught us, “What does it profit a man if he gains all the world, and loses his own soul? Also, what shall a man give in exchange, or to buy back, his soul?” [Mark 16:26 – Mark 8:36]

We need to have TOTAL success in life: in this life on earth and in the eternal beyond; and God has provided just such means to attain that goal. God has given us EVERYTHING WE NEED for: LIFE, and GODLINESS.

“According as His divine power has given unto us ALL THINGS that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue.” [2 Peter 1:3]

He has given us PROMISES so that we can share or partner with Him in His divine expansion – or growth of descendants – after we have escaped, by His saving grace, the ruin that is in the world through lust. In other words, after we are born again and start serving Messiah, we can partner and be a companion with God in successfully bearing fruit: that is, growing other seed-descendants. These include our own children who are born again while also reaching out to the rest of the world. “Whereby are given to us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” [2 Peter 1:4]

We should BELIEVE this and EXPECT it. Our children should be our greatest disciples. If not, something is wrong, or out of place.

Learn the PROMISES in Gods Word; believe them and appropriate them by faith. Take quality time daily to study and meditate in God’s Word. I usually separate my “study time” from my “devotional time.” In the morning, before I start my active day, I have my devotional time where I just want God to speak to me and minister to me through His Word, even before I have my prayer time. I made a rule years ago: “No Bible, no breakfast.” Eat the Word of God first. Jesus said, “It is written: Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” [Matthew 4:4]

When you study the Bible, ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you, and to teach you so you can teach others. The scripture instructs us, “Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” [2 Timothy 2:15]

Combining SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE with SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE will provide you a powerful impetus for ongoing success and continued vision. To be really successful we need to share our success with others: our family, our brothers and sisters in Messiah, our community, and the world.

THE MORE YOU KNOW . . . THE MORE THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN USE! This applies not only to mental knowledge but also knowledge gained through the acquisition of physical skills or craftsmanship. Bezaleel was such a man:

“And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying, See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, to devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, and in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.”
[Torah: Exodus 31:1-5]

When SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE is combined with SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE, there is a holy anointing upon our lives: our talents, skills, and abilities. Together, they not only complement each other, but they synergize each other.

But always remember: “Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.” [1 Corinthians 8:1] Temper your knowledge (both specialized and spiritual) with LOVE!

Daniel was a leader, counselor, and basically Prime Minister
in three different foreign kingdoms (in which he was captive) partly because of his knowledge base. The Bible tells us concerning Daniel and the three Hebrew teenagers who accompanied him into captivity:

“Children in whom was no blemish, but well favored, and skillful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability . . .”
[Daniel 1:4]

QUEST FOR EXCELLENCE plus TEMPERANCE

The Bible tells us another of the secrets of Daniel’s success:

“It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom a hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom; and over these three presidents: of whom Daniel was first, so that the princes might give accounts unto the presidents, and the king should have no damage.”

“Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an EXCELLENT spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.” [Daniel 6:1-3]

The word here used for “excellent” is “yateer” and in its root form means “preeminent, or very exceedingly excellent.” That’s because the spirit that was in Daniel was the Ruach ha Chodesh (the Holy Spirit). Because of Daniel’s separation and devotion to God, he manifested a quality of excellence in whatever he attempted.

The Greek word for “virtue” in the New Testament is “arete“: it means “excellence and valor.” We need to be people of EXCELLENCE. Our nature should be to make excellent decisions based upon virtue.

“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men. Knowing that of the Lord you shall receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.”
[Colossians 3:23-24]

Don’t compare yourself with someone else; just do what you know God wants you to do. Do your best, don’t be satisfied with low quality work or effort. It’s interesting that the origin of the word “mediocre” is from the Latin “mediocris” which means of “middle height or degree” but literally means “somewhat rugged or mountainous.” It is derived from the words “medius” for “middle” and “ocris” for “rugged mountain.”

To do mediocre work is actually harder on you because you are causing your conscience to condemn you. It is like climbing a rugged mountain. The Bible says, “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.” [1 John 3:20] The EXCELLENT choice may be more of a sacrifice temporarily, but it will be easier on you in the long term. You will never go wrong striving for excellence!

Practice excellence in your CHARACTER. Be transparent and keep your word. Psalm 15 is a good start for practical living and developing excellence in character. Also, loving our neighbor as we do ourself, and doing unto him as we would have him do to us, is the guideline our Master set before us.

Practice excellence in your WORK. Be a good steward for you earthly employer and your Heavenly employer. Colossians 3:22 (Brit Chadashah) instructs us NOT to do sight-labor, that is: work that needs watching.

In your quest for excellence, develop your skills to the BEST of your ability. Be a good manager of what God has given you and over which God has placed you. Keep improving and growing in your knowledge base, your acumen, and your skills. Study Part A of this ezine teaching to help develop excellence in acumen; study the section on “Decisive Nature and Virtue.”

Along with the quest for excellence you need to partner with temperance, or self control
. Many people, on their quest for excellence, do NOT allow for rest or leisure. This is vital to SUCCESS and CONTINUED VISION.

Rest, and also quietness, is necessary for wholeness
. A key scripture and principle that I have tried to practice in my life for many years is found in Isaiah 30:15:

“For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: In returning and rest shall you be saved; and in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.”


The word “leisure” comes from the Latin word “licere” which means “to be permitted.” The Latin word for “work” is “negotium” which means “nonleisure.” Most so-called advanced societies today have turned this around and view leisure as nonwork!

Tim Hansel, in his book When I Relax I Feel Guilty, points out that the Greeks stressed the centrality of lesiure, but they added another important facet. The Greek word for “work” was “ascholia,” which means “absence of leisure.” The word for leisure was “schole,” which leads to the English words for school and scholarship. Leisure, then, was a time for growth and development.

Leisure is more than just non-work. It is when we PERMIT ourselves time for rest, growth, and development. Leisure is BOTH the embryo and the catalyst for creativity, and for NEW experiences, people, play, and places.

We have to permit ourselves the time to rest . . . to re-create . . . and to create!

In the last newsletter we discussed the FIRST TWO TWINS for success and continued vision:

Enthusiastic Desire PLUS Faith; and,

Decisive Nature PLUS Virtue.

In this newsletter we discussed the third and fourth twins:

Specialized Knowledge
PLUS Spiritual Knowledge; and,

Quest for Excellence PLUS Temperance.

The remaining twins for success and continued vision will be discussed in subsequent newsletters.

Trusting that this teaching will move you forward on your quest for excellence in success and continued vision. To resource the other parts of this series (this is Part B), go to: Part A, Part C, Part D (Final)
