MONTHLY PARTNER LETTER
Dear Family and Friends, April 2023
I greet you in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
I want to thank each of you for your continued prayer and seed into our ministry. We are working hard to finish both churches.
For the last couple weeks this scripture has been coming up in my spirit. I would like to share with you what the Lord has shown me for these days we are living in. Kenneth E. Hagin said we have four weapons. The blood of Jesus, the Name of Jesus, the Word of God, and Praise. Recently Billye Brim added the fifth, praying in tongues. This confirms what the Lord has shown me.
In Proverbs 20:12 we learn that our hearing ears and our seeing eyes have been made by the Lord. In The Passion Translation (TPT) it says that our ears were given to us to hear from Him. In Matthew 4:11,12 (TPT) Jesus tells us we have been entrusted with the secret counsels of God that are hidden from the ungodly. Even they see what Jesus has done and prepared for us but they don’t understand and even when they hear what He says they learn nothing. One more verse, Matthew 11:15 We are to use our ears to listen and understand what Jesus is saying to us. In nother words, don’t let the Word go in one ear and out the other.
Sometimes, especially when we have an important decision to make, it’s hard to hear and understand what instruction He is giving. That is why this next scripture and actually the whole chapter is so important.
1 Corinthians 2:9,10 (KJV) “But as it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him, but God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit.”
This word “prepared” tells us that God prepared wonderful, prearranged blessings for each of His children. This word teaches us that God has a divine plan for each of our lives and He is ready to reveal it to us. How wonderful it is to know that we don’t have to figure out the purpose of our lives on our own. Our Father is a planner. He worked everything out for us before the foundations of the world.
Now what do you suppose the word them means in vs. 10? That God hath revealed them to us by His Spirit. The Greek word here is Apokalupsis. It literally means to remove the veil or to remove the curtain so you can see what is on the other side. So that we can see what has been prepared for us. That is why our end time weapon is praying in tongues and asking to interpret. The Holy Ghost will paint a picture in our minds of what our lives look like through the eyes of Jesus. He will show us what has been prepared and He will tell us of things to come.
If you have not already, it is time to develop a spiritual sensitivity to the voice of the Holy Ghost. Otherwise, we can be led away by wrong advice, or even try to seek signs like Old testament believers.
And last, it is up to us to teach our children how to hear the voice of the Holy Ghost. There is too much wickedness trying to take our kids far from a righteous life. Too many voices speaking into their lives. It is up to us to teach them that they have a holy destiny. Turn off the Tv, gather the family, pray in your holy language, and listen. Let the children tell you what they hear. If they don’t learn it from their parents, then where are they going to learn?
I pray for your eyes to see and your ears to hear how important what the Lord is saying to us for these end days.
You are loved,
Dr. Debra Bennett
