Matt. 9:16-17; Luke 5:37-39
(More accurately: a
visitation with announcements/understandings
given regarding His call to non-institutionalized meetings and
which included a vision of the whole Body and a resurgence or
of the less structured 'portion' and abilities)
What is described below
occurred just before the fall of 1995.
This began due to a series of events I knew
which can only be rightfully described as spiritual abuse. These events
culminated not in the deposing of, but rather the exaltation
someone whom I can only describe as a "Saul"-like character. Therefore
as a result of the news I had just heard, I kneeled before the
Lord in my living room, weeping and pouring out my heart to
David often did in the Psalms. I said, "Lord,
I am so upset and angry--- I know Your ways are higher than ours, but I
just don't understand this..." I was suddenly and unexpectedly
interrupted by the Father (Gen. 32:30;
Exodus 33:18-23) , who spoke audibly the words, "I have allowed it."
As I spoke a little further with God about the situation, He
interrupted me again to confirm that the "Saul" involved was indeed a
"Saul" and that he would "wax worse." (an obvious reference
to 2 Tim. 3:13: "But evil men and seducers shall wax
worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." KJV)
The Sovereignity of God both comforted me and
brought me up
short, because of the absolute, yet stern, confidence He conveyed.
Though proud men sin, it was only because of God that they
have their time on earth to do so--a time they may use to either prove
their works or repent (Romans 2:5-6). After this exchange I no
longer cared about the comings and goings of this individual "Saul."
Instead, I began to weep and intercede for America as a whole. (additional note, inserted year
2005: Within nine years after this conversation with the
Lord, this "Saul" died an early death from a terminal illness)
time God did not interrupt
my weeping. Instead, He listened as I poured out my
anguish to Him over the state of the Church in America.
I described the over-all situation as I had observed and experienced it
many times over the years, and as
so many others had also known. I thanked Him for
Spirit, but pleaded with Him for more long-term resolutions. I asked
Him many questions which essentially boiled down to, "What will You do,
if anything, about these problems?!!"
When the Lord began to answer me, His answers
astonished me. They
were completely outside of anything I had ever imagined or known. Below
is a brief account of what transpired next. Some of
what the Lord spoke to me is not included due to its personal focus,
some is not specified because of the length of time it would take for
explanation. Over the years, a few links and small edits or
additions were inserted afterwards, for the sake of clarification.
and Resurrection of an 'prophetic-apostolic type' ministry
At one point during the
interactions that followed, the Lord commanded
me to worship Him. I felt led to worship Him with "The Lord Is My
a song by Keith Green. Whenever the song stopped, I repeated the song
continue worshipping Him with all my heart. This was not easy because
the Presence of God both inspires a person to worship Him and also to
lie prostrate before Him. Also, the
ever-increasing anointing of His Spirit and the joy in His manner
caused a release of a wide range of emotions (mourning turned into
God announced that Keith
was an apostle of the Jesus Movement. By doing so, He defined
Keith's ministry as pivotal for the Jesus Movement. I saw Keith's plane
crash in a vision, and God said, "When Keith Green fell to the earth
a grain of wheat, it was not the end of his ministry, but the beginning
(of a new phase of it)..." God explained that He was secretly
His purposes according to the scriptural principle of John 12: 24 :
truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and
it remains by itself alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit." God
that He was raising up prophets to continue the apostolic ministry He
begun with Keith Green. He used a variable number when speaking about
prophets because He was certain that a minimum number would
triumph and continue
on in His purposes, yet hoped that He would have more than this minimal
number, and that all would remain operational for His
Even so, because He was so determined to intervene in America's Church
woes, He would
have His agents of change, and anyone who fell behind because of pride,
bitterness, or other hindrances, would simply be replaced. (Important note:
have never released this number because
it would be too tempting for people to try to fit themselves or others
into that set number of people. Additional
note: Do not
assume that these American prophets will have similar musical talents or will have a
like Keith Green's at all, or that they will all be white males.)
What I was shown was that Keith Green's death was spiritually
related to the 'death' of the Jesus
Movement itself, and these prophets had also all been thrust into a
of 'death' along with the man and the movement. In other words, since
all were spiritually
'related' to each other, these prophets suffered during the Jesus
backlash that contributed to the 'death' of the Jesus ovement,
Although these were dark years
for visionaries as a whole, the suffering
of these prophets was extremely intense. The tribulation came from the
enemy, and my impression was that most of it came through false
Christians whom the
enemy used. (For a good description of the emotional pain these
have suffered, please read the paragraph about the "Joseph Generation" in the
Wells, Fallen Mantles and New Fountains
this was part of His preparation and His plan. After the suffering He
had allowed, by His
hand He had raised them up, and was raising them up now. Now,
the prophets would lead the way. Like Keith Green, they would
not seek followers or promote themselves by titles, yet God's
Spirit would use them greatly. This was God's justice
to the prophetic community who, as a whole, had not been 'allowed' to
any real authority by the overbearing 'leaders' of the American Church.
These prophetic apostles, or
apostolic prophets, would
begin the Un (structured) Church.
this time, it was not unusual for much to be contained in only a few
words. Not only were His meanings rich beyond comparison, but a 'strobe
of flooding knowledge and images would often come into my mind during
this exchange. To put it simply, I would say that
His words CONTAINED understandings that given our
language abilities, would take many words to describe.
came to a full understanding of how small my understanding was
compared to His-- a condition we all will always have compared
to our Heavenly Father. Once, I even had
to ask Him to slow down a little --- my mind could not take
in so much at once. He graciously kept me from going on "overload" and
did slow down His explanations to accomodate my limited mind.
when the Lord God spoke the name Un(structured) Church, He
somehow conveyed the word "structured"
in parenthesis in His voice. This is because the "Un(structured)
Church", or the "UnChurch"
does have some structure. However, compared to the Structured
Church, it will seem as though it has no structure at all.
Vision of the Two Arms:
saw the two arms of the Body of Christ. God called the right arm the
"Structured church", the left He called the "Un(structured) church."
I understood that there
were functions that ONLY the Structured Church (church as most
know it) could accomplish, and there were things that ONLY the
Church' (ministries not dependent on the structured church or
church government) could accomplish. I understood that BOTH were
to be working in some amount of cooperation, but they were not. In
fact, for years (perhaps for centuries) the potentially "pure" part of
church suffered from deceptions injected by Satan, causing it to be
threatened by the Un(structured) Church, and vice
versa. Neither one realized that they
were both designed to to perform similar yet different functions for
the sake of the Kingdom of God.
When I speak of
any "purity" of either the Stuctured or Un(structured) Church, I do not
speak of false leaders of
course - these are those who set up or support their own 'kingdoms'
built for men's egos and
worldly gain. These "Sauls" and their supporters will always oppose the
good purposes of God---their mini-kingdoms are always opposed to the
Kingdom of God by their very nature.
I then saw a quick vision of what
had happened before in the United States. I saw the right arm violently strike
arm. At approximately the same time and yet somewhat related to this
action, I saw the left arm 'float' independently from the entire Body.
Neither action was the perfect will of God. This was the
of the Jesus Movement revival, and it was a result of both the "violence" of the deceived
within the "Structured" Church and the resulting confusion and strong
sense of independence of those within the Jesus Movement. As a
result, this manifestation of the "Un(structured) Church" had not been
functional for many years. It was a 'severed'
arm which felt disconnected, even 'homeless,' in relation to the rest
raising up of the Un(structured )Church
was now joyously revealing His plan of restoration. I
saw close-up of the left shoulder. The muscles and tendons of the arm
being skillfully reconnected. The Un(structured) Church was being
to work again as the Lord intended.
me make note here the fact that the Structured Church has been
trying to do the work that belonged to the Un(structured) Church for
decades. Having opposed the purposes of God, it was now anemic and
failing. The truth was that both
'churches' needed each other, but neither one needed false evangelists, pastors, teachers, prophets,
--of whose "counsel" the people should reject. Indeed, the Lord made
clear to me that the same excesses, errors and difficulties could
happen in either type of 'church.' No 'system' was able
to be fully fool-proof against the error of sin and
deception. Still, I was filled with His joy as I witnessed
and the results of it: The Body of Christ began to walk again.!
Following a brief respite, the last vision and
'flash' of information
came. By this time I was laughing with joy because God repeated for me
of a vision
He gave me in 1980....something I had never understood
and even forgotten. Suddenly I understood that I was seeing living room
after living room after living room-connected and extending. It was a
of living rooms, different people's living rooms, all connected! There
would even be mixes of believers from different denominations in the
'living room' church. The leaders/those committed, would not
attend Sunday services
as we have known it. They would only participate in the network of the
Un(structured) Church. At least some of these leaders would relate to
leaders within the Structured Church, but not in a subservient way at
all. Instead, this connection at the shoulder would be
about SUPPORTIVE RELATIONSHIPS with MUTUAL RESPECT.
I also saw that the
'wounded' of the Structured church would go to these "living room
fellowships" for healing. Some would
choose to return to the Structured church once recovered. Their leaving
was not to be regarded as a failure but rather a success. Unbelievers could hear the Gospel and become
saved too, just as in the Jesus Movement. This
part was about a network of homechurches. However,
"Un"(structured) Church includes much more than the homechurch
"movement"--God's creativity is not limited in what can be done in situations of little structure.
It should be noted that at the time of this
revelation, I was
completely unaware of any homechurch "movement" that was in place or
increasing. However, we never doubted that we were called to this and
that God was going
to do what He said He was going to do.
As with most things of this
nature, we were given confirmation in a variety of ways. For
at the end of the April 24-26, 1997 Daughters of the Lion Conference I
had been led to attend, a lady (a stranger to us) posted a note that
needed a ride home. I knew we were supposed to give her that ride. As
as she got in our car, she began to prophesy how the Lord was calling people back to
days of the early church and meeting in homes, with less 'structure'.
Her name was Jessie Hairston, and she said she was an itinerant minister with a ministry called Good
Ministries (currently as of year 2006, her cards simply say, Jessie Pearl Hairston Ministries). We
had a lively conversation all the way home and I ended up sending her a
copy of my written rough draft of Living
Stones .(Note: "Living Stones" was given to me in a
of visions and my own Bible studies just prior to this prophecy above,
yet was not posted right away because of the work involved in producing
then, as the Lord also indicated to me, there has been a mass exodus
from dysfunctional churches. Also, the number of people who have had
like visions or revelation or callings or writings has grown since the
above posting in 1997. As a result, I eventually posted an
section which included links to the revelations of others that have
come to my attention between the years 1995-2000.
contrast, others have jumped on some
sort of bandwagon
without true understanding/revelation, or character development. These
lack humility and if you pay attention to their teachings and
redefinitions, you'll notice increasing error. Most of them
out there collecting alot of money in hidden speaker's fees for their
'cutting edge' revelations in their conferences and by their books.
Always beware of the fake!
