Then I spent telephone time with Lynne Hammond. Always a joy! And, by the way, my granddaughter, Hannah, asked me if she could use our 8am Wednesday Israel Prayer Call number to have a Q & A call with Lynne. Hannah collected some questions from some of her younger praying friends. Lynne very comfortably, and highly anointed answered them. It was so good, I got in on the call at the end.
A strong childhood desire of mine was to be a teacher. Another was to be a preacher. The Head of the Church, our Lord Jesus Christ, must have planted those in my heart, for He united them in the living out my life in His service.In every session that we videoed to become 3BI classes, I sensed the thrill of a fulfillment of my God-given childhood dreams. There has been a wonderful anointing to teach and share the witness and revelation He has given. And there is proof it is reaching on-line students. Here are some testimonies:
Yesterday I texted the following to many pastors and leaders in the Body of Christ:
I’d like to share a challenge Pat Robertson issued one day this week on The 700 Club. He appeared to be livid. You could almost imagine smoke coming out his ears. He exclaimed how can this inert little bug hold such sway when we are the Church of the Living God. The Body of Christ, which has been given dominion. He dramatically challenged pastors over the nation to have their congregations take authority over the coronavirus this Resurrection Sunday.
I believe if pastors and congregations will take Pat’s challenge and join together we can take that virus down in a precipitous decline. One that will demonstrate something supernatural happened.
Pat Robertson made an impassioned plea today on 700 Club for Pastors and all believers next Sunday, Resurrection Sunday to take their authority over the Corona Virus and stop it in its tracks. How can this inert little bug, he said, stand in the face of the Body of Christ which has God-given authority over it. …We are posting a video of me leading the congregation of the Autumn Assembly of Prayer in praying and taking authority. Play the video and join me in this powerfully anointed prayer from Ephesians.
This video will bring you a smile. And perhaps a bit of “wonder” too.While I was in Israel, Jared and Rivka, my grandson and his wife, housesat for me. One day, on their son’s first birthday, Rivka (Rebekah) noticed Nathan was very active about something. She quietly picked up her phone and videoed it. You will see when Nathan noticed her and said “Hi.”He is on my bed pointing up to Akiane’s portrait of Jesus and saying “God.”Then he looks over to my “Prayer Chair” which faces the foot of my bed and looks out over the Lake. He points to my “Prayer Chair” and says again, “God.”
Recently, I heard more than one minister refer to the following and point out that God sees and has already provided alluding to the current Corona crisis. Brother Keith Moore smiled as he shared how he’d thought about where that ram was a day or two before. As Abraham and Isaac were making their way to Mount Moriah (site of the future Temple) that ram was making his way to the thicket. God had already provided.
My son, Chip, who pastors with his wife, Candace, A Glorious Church Fellowship in Collinsville, Oklahoma called me last week excited about what he was going to preach to his congregation. Of course, my heart was happy as he preached it first to me on the phone. He’d heard a minister say that the Chinese word for “crisis” is made up of two words. (If I’m not mistaken that would be two picture words.) One meaning “danger,” and the other, “opportunity.” In other words in every crisis while there is danger, there is opportunity.
It would be worth your while to watch their March 18, Wednesday night service, now archived.
I’ve had two impacting phone calls in the past two days. The first one this morning was from my son, Chip. He preached me what the Lord downloaded into him after he woke up one morning actually feeling the despair and hopelessness people, especially those who don’t know or act on God’s Word, are experiencing in the wake of all the bad news they are hearing. He walked outside, began to praise and thank God for everything he saw. And the Lord literally downloaded into him a message and a plan to help people. And it is GOOD NEWS!
Israel’s BordersGazaWe drove north from Beer Sheva to the Elah Valley, site of David’s victory over Goliath. The place of the confrontation has been purposely kept in its natural state. Most of us gathered 5 smooth stones from the brook to take home. Chip easily got into the telling the account of probably his favorite O.T. hero. We looked up at the hills where the opposing armies encamped. Then, some of the group saw lights flash in the sky. It was the Iron Dome defense system taking out rockets being launched from Gaza just a few miles to the West.
Please forgive me for not being in touch since coming to Israel.My first reason for not blogging, is that I was so involved in leading our initial 3BI Tour to Israel. This study-heavy tour, the first of its kind, will make a superb online course.Days we travelled and videoed with an amazing group of 88 students.Nights I prepared for the next day.
Because I strongly believe in God’s purpose and power for our younger generation, I strongly support and take part in something that happens every summer in Branson. A number of years ago, the Lord told my son, Chip, to start a youth rally in Branson, Missouri. This year, Champions 4 Christ Youth Rally is celebrating its 20th anniversary!
3BI Billye Brim Bible Institute was officially launched February 4, 2020.
My heart is thrilled to think our classroom has grown to include people I could never get to for an in-depth teaching session. One where we go into the Word of God and look deeply into its treasures—especially with a prophetic eye-view into the scriptures which tell the end from the beginning.
Do Today’s Events Have To Do With Ezekiel 38 War? “Probably.” They are at least a preamble to the war of Ezekiel 38. How long the “preamble” lasts is unknown to us.The players of Ezekiel 38 have a physical presence in the area: Russia, Iran, Turkey, et al.
We are teaching 3BI courses in a hotel in Branson, January 13-17.
The way I prepare the courses is to teach them in a live classroom setting. Then they are edited to become on-line courses. Right now we need more students to attend the Branson classes in January. Usually we teach out at Prayer Mountain, but since it is cold in January, and mountain roads can be slippery, we are looking forward to staying at the hotel and having classes there. Our students are so blessed, not only with the study, but with the camaraderie. At the end of this blog, you can see how to apply. Suggestion! You might give the gift of this 3BI class to someone as a Christmas Gift. Or even to yourself! Plus, it will be an inspiration to me to have you present as I teach!
As I wrote in my Prayer Letter, which you should be receiving by snail mail soon, I am so very, very grateful for and give thanks daily for the following:
Col. 1:12-14 KJV
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet [qualified us] to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in (the) light:
Who hath delivered us from the power [dominion, control] of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
An action taken by the U. S. and announced today by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo must not be lost in the “fluff” happening in Washington D. C. I rejoiced when I saw the announcement on Fox News. Here is how the Wall Street Journal reported it:Trump Administration Says Israeli Settlements Aren’t Illegal
Expectancy! That’s the word! I am looking forward with great expectancy to our Third Sunday at Three Healing and Miracle Service! This coming Sunday, November 17.
Sometimes you leave a meeting, “hoping” what the Lord wanted was accomplished. But with this meeting, I left each session comfortable in my inner man with trusting that His purposes were reached as we worked together with Him.
