Hey guys, This past weekend, most of our worship team had the awesome opportunity to attend the Onething regional conference in Dallas. It was hosted there by CFNI (Christ for the Nations Institute). Onething is a conference put on by IHOP (International House of Prayer) in Kansas City. (If you want to check them out on the web, their address is: It was begun by Mike Bickle and is a 24-hour a day ministry of “Worship with Intercession” in the spirit of the Tabernacle of David. The Prayer Room has continued without stopping in intercession and worship since September, 1999. Onething’s focus is on calling young adults to pursue the “onething that is needed” (Lk.10.42) as the focus of their lives. They have several conferences around the nation each year imparting vision and giving practical ways to become a people of ‘one thing’. On their website they say:

”In Ps. 27.4, King David prayed, “…one thing I ask, this one thing I seek, that I may behold the beauty of the Lord…” This prayer is central to what we are trying to cultivate in this generation. What if a generation without focus would rise up with vision, in confidence, to be burning and shining lamps? What would happen if a million young adults would have deep understanding of God’s emotions and profound knowledge of the hour in which we are living? Is it too much to ask, too much to dream for? These are the prayers that we are longing to see answered. This is the one thing that we desire. “

This is the heart of those who ministered to us this weekend. The leaders shared their hearts with us. Oh my! What radical lives they lead! But they don't see themselves as radical, just living what the Bible teaches! I felt awakened again to the revelation of the age in which we are living. Jesus is coming back soon! We are all going to die one day. That's a fact we cannot ignore. What are we doing with our lives? And what we are living for? My challenge was to press in closer, and to live more responsibly, always in light of eternity. The worship was awesome. Worship and intercession and the reading of the word flowed seamlessly together, weaving in and out. It was something that could never have been arranged by man but was orchestrated by God- even in the musical sense. We had many discussions about worship on the way back. Where we have been and where we are headed. How our worship has changed recently. What are those changes? It definitely is more than just in “style”. When I returned home, I found this flyer in my suitcase (I honestly don’t know how it got there), from IHOP’s Forerunner Music Academy. I want to share with you, the introduction. It sums up, I believe, what the Lord is doing in our worship services. Why our worship music is taking on more significance. Please read.

"King David grasped the Lord's intention in creating music. He understood that prophetic music and songs would release the power of God. He made that truth a living reality when he launched a national movement of singing and instrumentation that helped thrust Israel into her Divine destiy. He paid 4,000 full-time musicians and hundreds of prophetic singers to gaze day and night upon God as they sang the prayers of Zion. This was their primary occupation in life. They were employed in the Tabernacle of David, which combined worship and intercession that never ceased as it continued 24/7. Many worship leaders love Jesus and music, yet they do not have a revelation of the power of prophetic music and worship. We have a vision to see music restored to the place of glory God intended for it. We must never allow music to be reduced to a hobby, career or simply a nice way to warm up the church service when God intended it to be the vehicle that transports us into the glory of the Uncreated One."

May we truly desire this One thing- Lord, we want to behold Your beauty. Because when we do, we will never be the same! Amen! God bless you all. Kayla

Transition Word

Wednesday 3/22/06
Here is the word that the Lord gave Keith today and Pastor read at church tonight. KHJ

Transition, this is the word I am hearing. Positioned for transition. Transition is the act of passing from one state or place to the next, an event that results in a transformation. Events in your life leading up to this have brought you to where you are today. As you have been obedient you NEED to know that you are in God’s will, If you have obeyed me, if you have heeded my direction then you have no need to doubt that you are where you are supposed to be right now. I have positioned you for this time of transition. For many it has been a long time, and you have thought that my time has passed or my window of opportunity has closed. Not so, says the Lord. For I am about to propel you into what I have prepared for you, what I have spoken to your heart, what I have promised you. It has been a time of preparation.

It is close, it is near at hand, not afar off. The breakthrough is eminent. It is for you AND it is for the Kingdom. Those that are Kingdom minded will quickly heed the call to come up, to move. It is as an army that is amassing to move forward. The objective has been identified and the orders to move out have been given. Move in to possess what has been prepared for you. Do not let doubt or unbelief keep you from moving forward.

Be watchful for the spirit of confusion do not let it enter in and create chaos. During this transition the enemy will seek to cause disarray will seek to discourage the troops. Be focused be single minded, be n unity Remember he(the enemy) is but a shadow, a lie, a deception. The ground you are taking is already won. Obstacles that seem huge and insurmountable are not! Does not my word say for by You I can run against a troop; By my God I can leap over a wall? The road to victory is clear. It is time to pursue to overtake..

“So David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.”

I don't have any new prophecies transcribed for today (sorry!) But I hope to listen to the CD from the worship/intercession service tomorrow before my week gets crazy.

I've been thinking about how Pastor keeps talking about and praying against distractions... I have known that he was praying 'right on' but it has really come home to roost lately how distracted I've really been without even realizing it! Those united prayers he's been leading us in must be beginning to crack that wall, because I have begun to recognize where the distractions lie in my life. I still need more victory in that area so I plan to keep pressing against that wall until full victory comes. Pastor has been mentioning that concept lately. He said last Sunday that if you were trapped in a place and there was a crack in the wall, you wouldn't settle down and not doing something about it- you would press on that place until you eventually broke down that wall. If we do not grow weary, but see this window of opportunity and press in, I believe we're going to see some major breakthroughs in our individual lives and in our church. I am being challenged by the Lord to do just that. I do remember last Sunday night Sister Hazel sharing about pressing through till victory and we had a prophetic/spontaneous song that basically said, "We're gonna push until breakthrough comes". That seems to be a theme lately... Anyway, back to distractions (before I become distracted :^)... In our Beth Moore study we read the parable of the sower and how Jesus told of the different types of response to the seed that was sown. He explained the parable to His disciples in Mark...

Mark 4:14, (Jesus said) "14The farmer sows the word. 15Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them. 16Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. 17But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 18Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; 19but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. 20Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—thirty, sixty or even a hundred times what was sown."

How often is that us? We do hear the word, but then the distractions come- worries (fears, being overwhelmed, anxieties, busyness), the lure of acquiring more (making sure we're comfortable), the pleasures and entertainment of this world draw our gaze away. It shouldn't be this way but too often it us. When I truly do behold Him I wonder how I could ever be fascinated with anything other than the One who created me to be fascinated with Him! But thankfully He is gentle and He understands.

38 "As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!"
41 "Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."

I don't believe that Jesus said this to her with a stern look and a wagging finger, but I bet He probably smiled and put His hand on her shoulder. He knows the difference between when we need a swift rebuke because there is rebellion in our hearts and when we truly want to please Him- but in our striving, have gotten off-focus along the way. Martha loved Jesus. Martha wanted to please Him. But Martha was distracted. She got busy with things that probably needed to be done, but perhaps not at that time nor by her. You know- I wonder if she could have continued to do these necessary things, but not become "distracted" by them. But this time, she missed the best that her Lord had for her. To just "be still and know" Him. In our busy, hectic lives, if we would purpose to steal away alone with the Lover of our souls, in sweet communion and with His word, the ground of our heart would be fertile, broken up, and prepared to worship and to receive the word when we come together in the assembly. Good soil is not as vulnerable to thorns. May the enemy of our souls, the liar, accuser, spoiler, distracter, be exposed for who he is. And may we be prepared, alert and not vulnerable to his cloud of worries or lured away by busyness or the inferior pleasures of this world. But rather may we be ruined and fascinated with the only One who can truly satisfy and Who is worthy of our complete attention. Am I ever thankful for a Pastor who hears from the Lord! "Help us Lord and thank You for leading us in Your truth!" Amen. God bless you all! KHJ

Prophetic Words for Hosanna

With the "new thing" that the Lord is doing in our midst, I am wanting to begin compiling recent words that have been spoken at our church during our services. I have been convicted that I need to take the prophetic word seriously and to pray over it when we receive it. Not to just say, "that's nice" and continue on as before, praying as before, as if the Lord has not spoken. So for my own remembrance I am wanting to put the recent prophetic words spoken in our services here, in order to better aid us in how to pray for our church. Here are two that I transcribed from tapes of the Worship/Intercession services we've had for nearly a year and given by my husband Keith. (If any of you have copies of any other words spoken in our services by others and would like to share them with me, I'd be most appreciative. I especially would like the "new thing" word spoken by Pastor at the beginning of the year.) I will attempt to get more to post but for now I will post what I have. The first one I am sharing was spoken 8 months ago and the second one, 5 months ago. I am awestruck to see how these words have been coming to pass! As soon as I can, I am going to attempt to transcribe the words spoken at our last Worship/Intercession service this past Sunday and post it here. So stay tuned! Be blessed by the Word of the Lord but also pray over it!

"Recount the days gone by and ask yourself when has God not been faithful. Look at your life and where you have been. He has always come through for you. He has never failed you nor will He fail you now. Acknowledge His goodness, His perfect will for you and move forward in faith and possess all He has prepared for you for there is more, much more. Where is your faith? Do you really want to see My glory? I am preparing to move in your midst and I will show you the supernatural and you will see it with your natural eye. And there will be miracles and there will be healings and I will move on your behalf and it will be so that it will be undeniable that it is the Lord in your midst. 1 Cor. 2:9 says, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him".

"Do not be satisfied with leftovers, over remnants of past revivals or the former moves. The former has passed away like the manna. Prepare yourself for a new fresh move of My Spirit. I have sent the wind before and the rain of My Spirit before and I will send it again, and this- I am also sending the fire, and it will refresh and purify, and it will cleanse and strengthen and it will cause My Body to grow both in scope and depth. And do not doubt that you will be able to discern it, for it will be obvious. Especially to those who are forerunners. For those who are pressing forward, it will come unannounced, unplanned. But you will sense it like the strengthening of the wind. Even now I have dispatched it!"

This is my first attempt at blogging and it's sort of by accident! As I was trying to post a comment on one friend's blogsite, I somehow hit some buttons which had me creating my own! So here I am (sort of reluctantly!) Then I had the bright thought (could it be God?) that with the prayer requests I am always receiving and sending to everyone, perhaps this would be a better way to post them... I'm not sure how it will work (suggestions welcome!). My initial thought is that perhaps when I receive a request by email, (I'm not going to post my email address here for privacy reasons but most of you have it) I could post the requests here and you guys could just periodically check the site for prayer needs. I don't know if anyone will think to check it or if email is a better way, but please humor me and let's tentatively experiment with this. If it doesn't pan out, we'll go back to email... But I'm going to give it a shot. How about you? Who knows how this will evolve!

So for my first prayer request, I want to ask ya'll to continue to pray for George Waites, our friend who has pancreatic cancer. You can check out his blogsite at Pray for his recovery after major surgery and for complete healing. Also for his family and for them to continue to walk in strength, peace, faith and hope. They are truly amazing and have been a true example of praising the Lord in the good times AND the hard times. Anyway that's all for now (hopefully I'll post it right- yikes! :^o ) God bless you all!
