I have Divine Appointments Waiting for you!

Received 8-6-17 and 8-7-17


This Sunday morning (8-6-17) was like most Sunday mornings. My son Nathan and I have to be at worship band practice at 8:30 AM, he runs the soundboard and I play drums. This morning we were actually running a bit late which is not a real big deal because we usually have plenty of extra time. It was odd though that I had a feeling to park in a back parking lot down the alleyway that I do not usually park in. I could have easily parked in a spot right in front of the building, which is an old office building with a theater on the 4th floor that our church rents out.
What I soon found out was that the Lord had a divine appointment set up for me!

As soon as I got out of my truck I heard a woman cry out to me, "Sir could you help me?!"
So I walked over to her and I could see that she was crying. I could also see that she was a very skinny little woman with unkempt hair wearing pajama bottoms and an old hooded sweatshirt that did not match. Then she said crying, “I haven't had anything to eat in 2 days!“ By this time I was close enough to see her wrinkled face and that she also had no teeth, truly one of the "Least of these" that Jesus talked about. I took out my wallet to get some money out to give to her. My eyes saw a $5 bill but then I felt the Holy Spirit said, "No give her a $20".  I handed her the $20 and she seemed happy and said "Oh God bless you sir!" and told her thank you and that Jesus loves her. I told her she should go to the nice restaurant down the street but she said she needed to go up to the 7 eleven. Then she said she had such a bad migraine headache she didn't know if she could make it up to the store. At this point I had a thought race through my head, "You're gonna be really late for practice, you gotta go!" But I knew that this was my cue from the Lord and I asked her if I could pray for her and she said yes.  At this point the Lord just dumped down upon me an overwhelming sense of love and compassion for this woman. I felt her pain and I had tears in my eyes.  I think Jesus allowed me to feel a small fraction of what He feels for each one of us. She began crying again and told me that some guy had been abusing her and threw her down a flight of stairs and she showed me the bump on her head and told me she was living in a home for battered women. This broke my heart! So right then and there in a back parking lot off a side alleyway, I laid hands on her head and commanded the headache to go away and rebuked the devil away from her in the name of Jesus and hugged her.  She then thanked me and told me told me the doctors couldn't believe that she didn't have any broken bones after falling down a flight of stairs and she said "It musta been God!" I said, "Yes it was God and you need to surrender your life to Jesus and let Him take control of it." At first she said "No I can't do it, it's too hard..." Then I took her and hugged her again and I started praying out loud but I have no idea what I said but at the end I asked “What is your name?" and she said "Lillie." I said "Lillie you need to surrender yourself to Jesus and ask Him into your heart so I want you to ask Him right now, where we are." She started to cry again but she said a prayer right then, from the bottom of her heart and asked Jesus in. Then I prayed again and after I did I gave her another hug and she was wiping tears from her eyes and I got her a napkin to blow her nose on. Then she said without any prompting, "I feel different!" she said "Before you prayed with me I felt  like I had so much weight on me, it was like bricks in my heart, but now I feel light!" I told her that because she has Jesus inside her now and she said, "If I knew I was gonna feel this good I woulda done this a long time ago!" Then she asked about the church and I told her what time it started. She promised me she would come up and watch me and the band play and that she was going to get something to eat and go change her clothes. I told her to come as she was but she felt like she must be presentable, I didn't argue. 
I went up to practice rejoicing that I had led this dear soul to the Lord!
Lillie did come back for the church service and I introduced her to some of the beautiful, loving, women from the church, some of which she already knew! I could tell she was not used to being in church and was scared at first so she sat way in the back. Then we started our worship set and I believe that the Holy Spirit drew her up front during the second song. She was standing all the way up front crying with her hands raised and a bunch of ladies around her with their hands on her in prayer and then they would hug her.
It was just so awesome I cannot explain it, totally supernatural! The Spirit fell upon us during worship and communion in a powerful way too. Everyone in the place felt His presence.

I want to tell you all that I am not any kind of super evangelist street preacher. In fact I have gone out "witnessing" before and I absolutely hated it. I have given money to unfortunate people out in the streets and prayed for them and nothing happened (at that time anyways). This was completely set up by the Lord. IT WAS A DIVINE APPOINTMENT! 
The only thing that I did was allow the Holy Spirit to use me and speak through me. 
He did everything else!

Then the Lord spoke this to me and the church:
"I want My people to pray to Me every day to set up divine appointments in which I will pick the time and the location of. I will do the work, all you have to be is willing and obedient to Me. You will open your mouths and I will give you the perfect words to say from My heart that will melt the hardness of the hearts of those that I lead you to. My Spirit will do the work and you will be the conduit that I use to direct My Spirit upon those of My choosing, because I know who will be mine. 
My children, this is how the last harvest will be reaped, it will be totally led by My Spirit. You will not be going to those that have had a “good” life here on earth.
The rich important men of this earth shall be caught up into the system of their father, Satan and they will be bound in chains and thrown into the lake of fire because they did not repent.
You will be going to those whose hearts will be softened and even crushed. In humbleness they will come to Me and I will show them who I AM!
When the "kickoff event" takes place the people around you will be in need of answers and desperate for hope and love.  You will be the ones to give them what they need. It is at this time you will begin to hear My voice more clearly than ever before, if you have been seeking Me with all of your heart and have your sins covered by My shed blood. If they are in need of healing you will heal them. If they are in need of food you will feed them. If they are in need of miracles you will perform them. If they are need of a savior you will lead them to Me. You are My remnant, My disciples, My friends, My children, My
overcomers, My brothers and sisters, MY BRIDE!

I will warn you though, after the event the oppression and persecution will increase greatly and many who did not know Me intimately enough will turn their backs on you and Me. This falling away shall occur to make room for all of those you will bring into the kingdom and they will be our guests at the marriage and supper of the Lamb. There shall be many that thought they knew Me and it will be revealed when they follow the one who says he is the messiah, the savior of the world, the one who will unite the whole world against Me. I will destroy him by the breath of My mouth and by the brightness of My glory. For sin cannot stand in the fullness of My presence.

My beloveds, draw close to Me now and be filled to overflowing by the Holy Spirit, the same Spirit that raised Me from the dead. This is how you will walk in the Spirit and not satisfy the lusts of the flesh. This is how you will hear Me and obey what I am saying. You will lead many to Me and your reward is beyond what you have seen in the movies or read about in books or even dreamt about because it has not been revealed yet. It is absolutely glorious!
You are the last generation and the last shall be first!

It's all about to unfold now! 
Remain in Me and step out in faith when I speak to you!

Jesus Christ 
Yahushua Hamashiach"

May the blessings of the Lord's Spirit of love and peace overwhelm you all!
