Pastor Dan Nelson: It’s a fact: people don’t mind scrolling to read an email, as long as it’s relevant and interesting. Make sure your message follows through on the promise in your subject line, and use several short paragraphs if you have a lot to say. When in doubt, challenge yourself to write less and add links that support your topic.

Genesis 32:24 Jacob was left alone; and a man wrestled with him until daybreak.

Susan Harper Barnett: Yahweh is raising up a Company of Covert Operatives.

Isaiah 55:2 Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food.

Genesis 32:23 He took them and sent them across the stream, and likewise everything that he had.

Susan Harper Barnett: Many of you have been in this company for some time now. You have been going on assignment in obedience to Him. You have been going where He said go and doing what He said do. You are not known and have not been acknowledged. Your names and faces are unrecognized publicly even though the impact of your labors are widely displayed. You are part of the Company of Covert Operatives!

Andy Sanders: Just in two miracles of the many that Jesus did, He not only supplied gallons of expensive wine but pounds of fresh fish and bread free of charge. Am I advocating that Jesus misused His authority/power? No. Am I attempting to say that Jesus didn’t depend on help in the natural? Absolutely not! Jesus was/is fully son of man and son of God (see Mark 2:10; Matt. 27:54).  This includes being humbled and having to depend on God in every way, even up to His torturous death. At His death, He may not have asked for money, but He sure asked for something to drink (see John 19:28).

Jo Ellen Stevens: “The outpouring is just that, an outpouring of the overflow of my love for you and yours for me. I miss our deeper times and I have been storing a deeper revelation of who I am but for you to KNOW ME there must be intimacy. There must be a desire to follow me anywhere I go and gaze into what is in My heart for the moments of your life that I have given to you! I long for these days again My love! I am calling My people back to their first love again so that their candle will shine bright in this ever present darkness! Yes, come back and REMEMBER your first works and that work was to LOVE ME, FOCUS ON ME AND BE FULL OF ME! You have been enduring because you have not been drinking at the fountain of living water! Drink again My Love, drink again!”

Brat: Well said!

Romans 9:1 I am speaking the truth in Christ–I am not lying; my conscience confirms it by the Holy Spirit–

Israel 365: What is your most valued possession?

Isaiah 55:1 Ho, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you that have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Andy Sanders: Why do ministers and ministries ask for money? I guess the real questions are—why not? Is there a better way?

Genesis 32:25 When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he struck him on the hip socket; and Jacob’s hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him.

Steve Porter: I want Him to be able to trust me with His most troubling secrets. When you have a friend you can trust, or share things with, you feel free to be real with them. You know they are not going to judge you and you know they are going to hear you. Can you be that kind of friend to Jesus? Can you handle it when He’s not upbeat and happy? Can you handle it when He’s brokenhearted and grieved and wants to share those feelings with you?

Chabad.org: Is the world really ready?

Romans 9:2 I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart.

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz: However, Rabbi Ariel noted that much of the opposition to the Third Temple comes from within the Jewish People.

Moshe-Yaakov Wisnefsky: The explanation is that the seven nations are [the earthly manifestations of] the seven evils, i.e. the vessels that broke. Thus, all the holiness [that was originally in them] has left them.

Ryan Johnson: “Will God have to remove you to move with His glory or will He be able to use you in the Emerging of Glory?”

Revelation 1: John,

To the seven churches in the province of Asia:

Grace and peace to you from Him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before His throne

Romans 9:3 For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my own people, my kindred according to the flesh.

Brat: Ya’know, Paul, I don’t wish a curse on anybody! They are so painful and so bad! I soooo know what you mean and what you are talking about! I have been accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my own people, my kindred according to the flesh. I’d say “you wouldn’t believe it!” if I shared my timeline with you, but you really would believe it, because you’ve been through it, too. But God has been faithful!! Woo! Hoo!

Monk: Yeah!

[Crowd cheer]

Psalm 145:21 My mouth will speak the praise of the LORD, and all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.

Lana Vawser: Today I was able to stop into Washington D.C quickly and was standing looking at the White House and I had a vision. I saw the Lion of Judah on the lawn of the White House. He was poised and looking towards the White House and He opened His mouth and He began to ROAR. As He roared, a roar of such authority, alignment and unlocking, I watched the vision begin to change. As I could still hear the sound of His loud roar, I saw a HUGE timeline in the spirit and as His roar resounded, angelic hosts were being released and they were going along this timeline. They were going SO far back in the history of the United States and I knew instantly what they were doing. The time had arrived, for them to be released to go back and begin to retrieve the spoils.

Psalm 145:9 The LORD is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made.

Fr. Dwight Longenecker: To be “trad” [traditionalist] is to be rooted and grounded. To be “rad” [radical] is to be free and spirit filled. To be “trad” is Benedict. To be “rad” is Francis. To be “trad” is Gregorian chant. To be “rad” is Taize chant. To be “trad” is incense, lace and solemn grace. To be “rad” is charismatic spirituality and healing grace. To be “trad” is “go and sin no more.” To be “rad” is “neither do I condemn you.”

Moshe-Yaakov Wisnefsky: But Moses accepted them, thinking that it would be good to absorb them into holiness.

Chabad.org: MOSHIACH,
NOW?

Jo Ellen Stevens: “My heart is broken for you again My love!” Do you not remember when you came after me with all of your heart and the fire that burned deep within? Do you not remember the nights that you stayed awake to just be with me and when you were so excited about anything that I would show you then? It was then that men and women would follow you to drink from the overflow that was in your heart and follow the light that was so bright within you! Can’t you see that this is a key to the outpouring that I want to bring forth in this time?”

Chabad.org: APPROACHING MOSHIACH

JUDAISM’S REAL-WORLD UTOPIA

Andy Sanders: Jesus Didn’t Ask for Money? 

Chabad.org: A NEW ONLINE COURSE FREE AT CHABAD.ORG

Shawn Bolz: Words of knowledge are not about information, they shift foundations…

Moshe-Yaakov Wisnefsky: When the Jews, led by Moses, left Egypt, Moses acceded to take along a “mixed multitude” of non-Jews with them. Although his intentions were good, these people had not been fully educated about the ways of Judaism and the path of the Torah, and so they made numerous errors in judgment throughout Israel’s trek in the desert, often drawing the Jewish people into their errors as well.

Ryan Johnson: Listen, only you know whether or not you have embraced an orphan spirit that has developed a lone-ranger mindset. If you have, be encouraged that the Father is calling upon you to repent and position yourself in the order of His purpose that ultimately produces all of His goodness to go before you (Exodus 33:18-23).

Jo Ellen Stevens: “Our relationship has become one where you have learned all the ways in which to manipulate Me into getting what you want, but there is no true love in it! I am wearied with your formulas!” I love you with an everlasting love, but I am asking for your passion again!” The very reason that many of My church’s candles have gone out is because they do not come after me like a love sick bride in waiting anymore!” They are weary in well doing because it has become a drudge to them just like an old married couple who have not continued to stir up their passion for one another!”

Talitha Arnold: God has no hands but ours.

Isaiah 55:5 See, you shall call nations that you do not know, and nations that do not know you shall run to you, because of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has glorified you.

Ryan Johnson: The Father is looking for sons who are ready to come back so that they may be able to be adorned in the attire of the Father. He is looking for sons, not servants. Those who can take on the identity of the Father that they may reveal the glory. The Emerging Glory is moving about the earth and those who will be obedient will release the goodness of God with fresh oil.

2 Chronicles 16:For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. You have done a foolish thing, and from now on you will be at war.”

Brat: No, LORD! No! Forgive our foolish thing! We can’t take any more war! YOU PROMISED that at the end of the age there would be no more war. You showed us how Your Kingdom would be set up like Camelot and the knights would fight at the Roundtable instead of on their steeds. You said that You would fight with the double-edged sword, the word of Truth.

Revelation 19: 21 The rest were killed with the sword coming out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.

Bishop Thomas Grumbleton: Ordinarily, a king would be coming in with his troops, riding on a warhorse, coming to use force to have his way. Instead, Zechariah said, “No more chariots in Ephraim, no more horses in Jerusalem, for this king will do away with them. The warrior’s bow shall be broken when he dictates peace to the nations. This king will reign from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth.”[1] [Zechariah 9:9-10]

Revelation 4:6 Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back.

Brat: God sees.

Steve Porter: When was the last time you took the time to ask, “Father, what breaks your heart? What burdens you? How do you see the church? How do you see my family?” Don’t doubt for a moment that He will come and reveal Himself to you when you get close enough to ask.

Jo Ellen Stevens: The Lord said to me, “My people do not stand at the fence just to watch what I am about to do anymore and so they have become cynics while they have endured. They have become the prodigal’s older brother thinking that they have done it all and that I owe them something for it, like an old married couple who have forgotten what it was like to be in love!”

Moshe-Yaakov Wisnefsky: Evil can be defined as consciousness not sufficiently oriented toward and focused on G‑d – or, worse, oriented away from or against G‑d. Just as with people, who must undergo a selfish period of childhood in order to develop their sense of self before emerging into the mature, adult world, so must any revelation of Divinity, or any soul, undergo a maturation process before it can descend into the world. Although the soul will mature again during its lifetime as it goes through childhood, etc., this is a second stage of development. Thus, to a certain extent, the character of the individual is already developed during its fetal life.

Russ Walden: This is a time of convergence when the energy and information inherent in My kingdom is determining what happens next in the earth and what happens next even in your life. You are EMPOWERED!

Simcha-Shmuel Treister: The prophet Ezekiel describes, in his vision, angels as “standing straight-legged”. (Ezekiel 1:7) Angels stand humbly like a servant waiting the call of their master, whereas man is called “walking” and hence has the Torah laws – called “halachot”, which literally means “walkings”, to guide him through the mixed spiritual-physical nature of this world. Since the person praying has reached the highest spiritual worlds in his meditative state, it is appropriate for him to behave in the manner of the denizens of that world, not strutting around, but humbly standing before his Master.

Genesis 32:29 Then Jacob asked him, “Please tell me your name.” But he said, “Why is it that you ask my name?” And there he blessed him.

Lana Vawser: I heard the Lord say “Many intercessors will see Michael the Arch Angel in the spirit marking out areas to intercede and decree as he battles the principalities unleashing a new level of victory.”

Simcha-Shmuel Treister: He needs to connect with the angels.

Genesis 32:27 So he said to him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Jacob.”

Lana Vawser: Intercessors, pay attention to angelic visitations and visions in this season, for new prophetic pathways of intercession will be mapped out to you, as the Lord invites you to see the areas He has assigned Michael the Arch Angel to move into and bring a new level of victory and freedom. Not taking on principalities as the people of God, but agreeing with the decree of God in the areas being “marked and mapped out” and as God’s people pray and decree, angelic hosts went to battle in the agreement of God’s decree bringing the United States into another level of freedom and victory.

Donné Clement Petruska: Isaiah 55:11 (NKJV)
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Talitha Arnold: It’s trite, sentimental, overused, and hackneyed. It’s also true.

Russ Walden: It is a day of reformation says the Father.

Isaiah 55:4 See, I made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander for the peoples.

Moshe-Yaakov Wisnefsky: The Mixed Multitude thus reflected this idea of premature introduction into holiness. Insecure in their sense of self, they were not ready to abandon it in favor of the truth to which they were being elevated.

Lana Vawser: The sense of the power of prayer surrounded me, the sense of the power of intercession and the shift and turning point that is being ushered into the nation through the prayers of the saints. There was such a strong sense that in this partnership with the Lord to continue to cry out, pray and intercede a whole new level of victory and the unstoppable move of the Holy Spirit would be seen to flood throughout the nation.

Moshe-Yaakov Wisnefsky: G‑d did not want to accept these unfit converts. [Had they not joined the Jewish people], there would have been no death or exile, as it is written, “[The tablets were the work of G‑d, and the writing was the writing of G‑d,] chiseled on the tablets.” (Ex. 32:16)

Romans 9:4 They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises

Fr. Dwight Longenecker: True Catholicism is therefore ever ancient and ever new. It is Benedict and Therese–an old man and a little child. It is the wisdom of age and the wisdom of innocence. It is at once a contradiction and a paradoxical complementarity.

Matthew 13:52 And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like the master of a household who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”

Shawn Bolz: When you align with Him, all of a sudden people who are not worthy become worthy to your time.

Moshe-Yaakov Wisnefsky: Moses, as a leader, should have known that this was the case. But his acceptance of the Mixed Multitude reflected a weakness on his part, an unwarranted tolerance and acceptance of that which is imperfect and unripe, erroneously allowing it to take part in mature, adult life before its time. (Perhaps this over-fascination with the raw, the untamed, and the immature echoes Isaac’s fascination with and preference of Esau over Jacob, as well as modern society’s worship and indulgence of youth at the expense of its reverence and appreciation of the wisdom of age.)

Steve Porter: Many forget the Holy Trinity can be grieved, quenched, and hurt. Will we stop talking long enough to hear the heart of our Father? I’m sure no man can fully understand all His sufferings, and certainly our feeble attempts are very limited, but God takes great delight in those who care enough to ask Him, “How are you doing? What is on your heart right now?” What close intimacy this type of love exchange can offer.

Genesis 32:28 Then the man said, “You shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with humans, and have prevailed.”

Talitha Arnold: Prayer
The eyes of all wait upon you, God. They wait upon us, too. Open our hands and our hearts. Amen.

Matthew 14:19 Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds.

Andy Sanders: In modern-day terms, Jesus basically became His own fish and bread soup kitchen that day for the masses. Or, better yet, a glorified fish fry for the entire community. When someone can pull this off, why would they need to ask for an offering after they preach?

Matthew 14:20 And all ate and were filled; and they took up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full.

Monk: See? The disciples were fed, too!

Romans 9:5 to them belong the patriarchs, and from them, according to the flesh, comes the Messiah, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen.

Matthew 13:48 when it was full, they drew it ashore, sat down, and put the good into baskets but threw out the bad.

Moshe-Yaakov Wisnefsky: This way, Moses reasoned, their unrefined power could be harnessed for holy purposes. Their desire to join the Jewish people seemed to indicate their readiness for this.

Monk: So, where do y’all want the conversation to go, since the core issues still have not been resolved?

Psalm 17:5 My steps have held fast to your paths; my feet have not slipped.

Brat: I realize there are many issues, but I offer my issue on the altar. As God is my witness, I share the journey per His mandate to me. The Church does not offer sanctuary during the sharing, even though the divine conversation will go on forever.

Monk: (Even Martin Luther had a fortress to hide in when his Pharisees were after him.)

Brat: Not having real sanctuary (versus the lectures on “God is your sanctuary!” and “Love is all you need!” [The Beatles: https://youtu.be/dsxtImDVMig]) honestly feels like keeping someone on life support, because the family is too selfish to let her go.

Genesis 32:26 Then he said, “Let me go, for the day is breaking.” But Jacob said, “I will not let you go, unless you bless me.”

Monk: Holy Jesus, the Church has the means and the ability to provide Sanctuary. There are twenty-four elders around Your throne.

Revelation 4:4 Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads.

Monk: In a healthy family the elders are supposed to shepherd the selfish son to try and bring him back to his senses and break him out of his selfishness. That’s what real men who are being MEN are supposed to do! They have the Truth and a clearer picture of the full story. Please help the elders to restore the birthright to the son, who was snatched up to God and to His Throne. (Rev 12:5)
