by JRP Ministry Staff on 03/24/20

The latest video regarding people committing the sin of presumption in the Bible: Joshua & His Committee - Running Blind. Not just good information, but essential to keep at the forefront of our thinking in this new season. What happened to Joshua and his committee is a grave warning to us.

The Judgments of the Lord are Released With Purpose

by JRP Ministry Staff on 03/21/20

The judgments released from the Lord are designed to bring us to repentance.  He has sounded His alarm!  The time has come to turn to Him and cast off the lukewarmness that has infected our hearts.  It is time for the Church to align with what the Holy Spirit is doing and saying.  The Lord is shaking the heavens and the earth.

More judgments will be released from the Lord.  This is but the beginning.  Why won't we turn back to the Lord now.  The Lord says, "Woe to those who stand against Me Lord in the day of My wrath."

Only those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty (Ps 91:1).  The Lord's protection is entirely conditional upon our obedience, not our Christian label.  Just because we call ourselves Christian does not automatically mean we will be protected from what has and will be released in the earth.  The Lord is not obligated to protect the rebellious.

To leaders, the Lord says, "Change or perish!"  We must allow the Holy Spirit in and surrender our agenda.  Seek the Lord while He may be found!

Daniel 9:13–14 (NASB95) 
13 “As it is written in the law of Moses, all this calamity has come on us; yet we have not sought the favor of the LORD our God by turning from our iniquity and giving attention to Your truth. 14 “Therefore the LORD has kept the calamity in store and brought it on us; for the LORD our God is righteous with respect to all His deeds which He has done, but we have not obeyed His voice.

Prophetic Bulletin: The Lord is Shaking the Heavens & the Earth

by JRP Ministry Staff on 03/13/20

I saw the Lord standing upon the earth with a Thompson sub-machine gun (made infamous by both criminal syndicates and law enforcement during the era of prohibition; it was also the weapon of choice in robbing banks), firing down upon the nations.  The interpretation is that the Lord is taking the wealth of the nations.  He is doing this with great purpose.

I then saw the financial and economic connections between nations rolling up and being disconnected; this will bring severe economic hardship to the peoples of many nations, if not all.  The first example/model of this is the economic ties that the Lord intends to break between the U.S. and China.  The judgment that has come in the form of the Coronavirus/Covid-19, that has brought economic havoc to that nation, is what the Lord is rolling out to the nations.  The Lord’s intention is to bring the government of China to its knees and turn to Him.  It is also His intention to bring the nations to the Lord through His judgments.

To understand what is coming, we should be watching what the Lord is doing in China.  What the Lord has released, and will release, upon China is a warning to the United States as to what is coming if we do not repent.  The Lord is firing a warning shot across our bow.

As the people of the nations cry out to the Lord for deliverance, He will bring economic restoration, but not without leaders relying on the Lord for revelation as to what they should do.  Man’s wisdom and the wisdom of the world will not save a nation from economic chaos and judgment.  The Lord has already planned on the restoration of the nations even though judgment is being released, but reliance and obedience to His Holy Spirit will be required.

 The restoration the Lord intends to bring is a holistic revival; it will be multi-dimensional including salvations, healings, miracles, restoration of economies, etc. 

As the Church aligns with the Holy Spirit and repents of its rebellion, many Christians will be given authority over great wealth for the purpose of ministering the Gospel.  With great resources comes great responsibility to follow the Holy Spirit in the administration of the wealth He is entrusting them with.  This will be the fulfillment of Haggai 2:6-9 (NASB) –

6 “For thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Once more in a little while, I am going to shake the heavens and the earth, the sea also and the dry land.7 ‘I will shake all the nations; and they will come with the wealth of all nations, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts. 8 ‘The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine,’ declares the Lord of hosts. 9 ‘The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘and in this place I will give peace,’ declares the Lord of hosts.”

The Church will be entrusted with great wealth to reach the nations with the Gospel.  The Lord intends to use the Church to bring the resources needed to minister to the spiritual and practical needs of the nations to demonstrate His love for the world.

 

As the financial and economic situation becomes severe and desperate, He will bring the supplies that are needed.

 

This is a time of incredible opportunity for the Church to align with the Holy Spirit and to come under His glory.  Obedience in this hour is critical, for the Lord is not obligated to protect rebellious Church leaders or Christians who are bent on doing their own thing without the counsel of the Lord.

 

As we align with the Lord, asking for spiritual eyes to see what the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, is doing the Lord will reveal His plans and strategies for us.  As we cry out to the Lord for ears to hear what He is saying, He will bring the revelation needed during the dangerous and perilous times that He has proclaimed were to come upon the earth and are now here.

 

Please refer to our website for a historical overview of what the Lord has been revealing to me since 1996 and especially since 2013.  The revelations include prophecies concerning the judgment He was bringing to China that would have a ripple effect around the world.

 

May the Lord give us eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church!  The time is now for Church leaders to repent of doing ministry the way they think they should conduct ministry.  Following the Holy Spirit, being sensitive to His promptings and allowing Him to flow like a River in and through His Church is absolutely necessary; there is no Plan B. 

 

Heaven is sounding an alarm!  His message is simple to pastors and Church leaders – “Change or Perish!”

Martha, Do You Know…You are in the Way

by JRP Ministry Staff on 03/10/20

There are interesting points one can observe about Martha, the sister of Mary and Lazarus. 

In Luke 10, she is attempting to pull Mary away from Jesus, demanding that He instruct her to help serve, yet there is nothing more important than sitting at Jesus' feet in simple devotion.

In John 11, she is attempting to keep Jesus from raising the dead, her own brother, even though she called Him into what was a desperate situation.  A word to the wise: when you call Jesus into a situation to raise the dead (physical or spiritual), don't attempt to tell Him how to do His business.  The best course of action is to get out of His way and do what He tells you to do. 

In either case, Martha represents the religious.  The religious attempt to pull people away from their simple devotion to Jesus, demanding they "get busy", or they attempt to obstruct Jesus from getting to those who need Him the most, with their rational and worldly arguments as to why certain things can’t be or shouldn’t be done.  For the religious its far better to simply let the dead remain dead.  The stone that must be rolled away is deep in the heart of the religious.

The funny thing about those who are steeped in religion is that they tend to think they know what's best when it comes to revival.  They want control of the Lord and the people who need Him; they want revival their way.

The dangerous issue about Martha is not that she was so busy, "worried and bothered about so many things", as the Lord points out (Luke 10:41), but that she attempted to keep people away from the Lord.  Well-meaning Martha’s are praying for revival in many churches, but they will never see it if they don’t decide to allow the Lord to be exactly who He is in His Church.

China: Judgment will Quickly Escalate

by JRP Ministry Staff on 02/25/20

{Note:  It is with a very heavy heart that I am releasing this prophetic word concerning China that I received on February 20, 2020.  Please pray that the leaders in China would turn to the Lord and surrender to Him.  I submit this word to the Church.} 

In a vision I saw the Emperor’s palace in China.  There was a wall with three doors and on the far left a man, who appeared to be a Chinese government official, declared, “We do not have any answers!  Bow the knee to the Lord!”  This will be the direct result of the judgments the Lord will bring with increasing intensity.

The first judgment the Lord has released is the coronavirus/Covid-19.  The second judgment He will release will be incrementally more severe.  The third will by exponentially more severe than the previous two.  This third judgment will bring the nation of China to its knees before the Lord; the government will declare openly that they do not have any answers or solutions for the judgments the Lord has brought upon the country.

The Lord’s purpose in doing this is to tear the spiritual veil, revealing who He is to that nation. 

The financial and economic sector controlled by corrupt men will be systematically dismantled and demolished.  I saw a building representing the financial and economic systems within China full of cracks from top to bottom.  There appeared to be left, middle and right portions or sections of the building.  The Lord would work from left to right and I saw Him begin at the upper-left corner of the building.  The sense I had was that He would remove the building, piece by piece.  Underneath the building was a vault where the wealth of China was stored.  The Lord stood in that section of the building giving directions to angels for them to remove the wealth that would be used by the Church.

What the Lord is doing and will do in China is a warning to the nations.

Jesus will then reveal to the Chinese government why He has dismantled the nation through His judgments.  He will let them know that He has taken control, and what they must do for Him to bring restoration.  Restoration from the Lord for China will be conditional.  He will help the people in China and will not leave them helpless.

All of this is coming sooner than we think.

Lessons from King Saul's Life

by JRP Ministry Staff on 02/21/20

Saul was called and anointed of the Lord.
His life was changed and he experienced the power of the Holy Spirit.
He was given a father in the Lord who was a powerful prophet with wise counsel.
He would not hearken diligently to the Lord’s commands.
He feared people more than the Lord.
He built a monument to himself and his accomplishments.
His sin of presumption in attempting to act as a priest, ultimately led to his downfall.
He was habitually disobedient which resulted in opening himself up to an evil spirit and wickedness taking over his life.
He fought against the Lord’s anointed and His will.
He was guilty of conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder, murdered 85 priests, exterminated the inhabitants of Nob, consulted a medium and then committed suicide.
What can we learn from this?
We would do well not to follow “leaders” who are bent on living a life of presumption and disobedience; it is impossible for the Lord to protect those who do.  In the end he was overrun by his and the Lord's enemies.

1 Samuel 31:6 (NASB95)

6 Thus Saul died with his three sons, his armor bearer, and all his men on that day together.


1 Samuel 31:8–10 (NASB95)

8 It came about on the next day when the Philistines came to strip the slain, that they found Saul and his three sons fallen on Mount Gilboa. 9 They cut off his head and stripped off his weapons, and sent them throughout the land of the Philistines, to carry the good news to the house of their idols and to the people. 10 They put his weapons in the temple of Ashtaroth, and they fastened his body to the wall of Beth-shan.

Walking Floodgates of the Holy Spirit

by JRP Ministry Staff on 01/22/20

Living our lives in accordance with the word of God, while following the promptings of the Holy Spirit allows us to be walking, living and breathing floodgates of the River of God.

Walking floodgates of the Holy Spirit earn the right to be stewards of the outpouring He has promised to the Church.

What Does it Take to be a Great Leader?

by JRP Ministry Staff on 01/21/20

You can read all of the leadership books there are in the world, but the Bible makes it simple. Great leaders are great followers of the Holy Spirit.
