FIRESTORM 2021
It was wonderful to be a part of the 20th Firestorm conference!
With Bishop Joseph Garlington, Eric Johnson, Nathan Finochio, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, Steffany Gretzinger and others, what an incredible weekend! In 2021 we are compelled to burn brighter even brighter we feel God is calling us to burn for him so bright that the world will know Him through our lives.
May we carry the Holy Spirit flame that never goes out. It was so refreshing to gather together for worship, teaching, and impartation to stoke the coals of revival again and burn like never before. We have returned from Firestorm 2021 refreshed and encouraged with an amazing testimony over 30 years in the making -- from Rev Samuel Rodriguez and Bernie. 1983 with TC Rehrersburg Choir. Can God use a "random" prophetic word from a stranger prove to be the trans formative moment in a 14 year old's life? VIDEO
A real highlight of the Burn Bright Firestorm conference, in addition to the incredible worship and amazing teaching, in addition to the incredible worship and the amazing teaching was the opportunity to spend time with Fred and Joyce Shrimp. Fred was my roommate at Lock Haven University and one of the most powerful influences on my walk with God in those early days as I was breaking free from addiction. His wife Joyce is very close to Cathy and they have been faithful in prayer partners and supporters about our ministry with Teen Challenge

What a difference
a day Makes!

  PURIM:
So they called these days Purim, after the name Pur. Therefore, because of all the words of this letter, what they had seen concerning this matter, and what had happened to them, the Jews established and imposed it upon themselves and their descendants and all who would join them, that without fail they should celebrate these two days every year, according to the written instructions and according to the prescribed time, that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family,every province, and every city, that these days of Purim should not fail to be observed among the Jews, and that the memory of them should not perish among their descendants.
(Esther 9:26-28 NKJV)
Bern

If you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise in another place, but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows, but that you have come to your position for such a time as this.
Esther 4:1

 

As the Hebrew celebration of Purim has concluded, we are reminded of God's continued providence and provision for the people of God. The book of Esther is the only book of the Bible that does not explicitly mention God. However, the evidence of God's sovereignty is clearly demonstrated throughout the narrative. 

The name Purim comes because Haman had cast lots (purim) to determine the day to annihilate the Jews. This season, Jews remember the great deliverance that God brought to the Jewish people in the land of Persia.

In this story, the events that we so often refer to as coincidence, come into focus as "God's incidents" The players in this story, Esther, Mordecai, and the treacherous Haman are real historical people, but, there is more. Within the book of Esther is Gods hidden prophetic journal of this millennium.If the wind is against me ... if the world is against me, though the storm may rage and the waves pound my life, I know it will not work, I know in Whom I have believed (IITim 1:12)

 
Haman prepares to hang Mordecai on the Gallows and obliterate God's people. The radical obedience of Ruth, one young lady, brings deliverance and victory as Haman is executed on those gallows.

Haman was a high official, in effect the prime minister of the Persian king Ahasuerus, also known as Xerxes who reigned 485-465 BC. He was an Agagite, descendant of Agag, a region bordering on Media. This story points to the enduring trail of consequences of King Saul's disobedience. In II Samuel 15, Saul disobeyed the word of the Lord to utterly blot out the Amalekites. Saul spared King Agag in what appeared innocent political expedience. Unfortuntley, satan's diabolical efforts to destroy the people of God continue as long as God's chosen vessels compromise the express word and command of Father.

Haman spitefully devised a devious plan to destroy him and all of the Jews. When Esther heard of the plot to destroy them, she had a choice to make. Would she hide her real identity as a believer, or would she risk her reputation and position to see God's people redeemed?

Thank God for bold, obedient counselors like uncle Mordecai. Faced with the choice of remaining undercover or risk that the King might execute her when she intercedes for the Jews, she asks, "Uncle, what should I do?"

He answers with these incredibly powerful words
13 Do not think that because you are in the kings house you alone of all the Jews will escape.
14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your fathers family will perish.
And who knows but that you have come to your position for such a time as this?

Esther listened to her uncle, Mordecai, and approached the king to plead for the Jews. God supernaturally intervened and Haman died on the gallows built for Mordecai. One day Haman prepares to hang Mordecai on the Gallows and obliterate God's people. As the result one day later, because of the radical obedience of Ruth, one young lady, brings deliverance and victory as Haman is executed on his own gallows.

Once again, in 2021, we see an evil plot try to destroy the people of God. Whether we look at the nuclear threat from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Corona Virus, emerging variants, political unrest or the creeping compromise in the body of Christ, the danger is still real. And God is looking for people that will raise up their voice, and risk all they have in the name of the true King. The ongoing threat to the people of God is more than a geopolitical issue, it is a radically spiritual predicament that faces every one of us in this hour. There is always someone or something waiting to make a Persian (Babylonian) out of you.

FOCUS

 


Again I say
unto you,
That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done
for them of
my Father which is in heaven.

 

1) Novel Coronavirus

Please pray for those at risk, infected and affected by the novel coronavirus. (2019-nCoV), Globally, there have been nearly 106 million confirmed cases of COVID- including 2,312,278 deaths, reported to WHO.


World Health Organization Novel Coronavirus DASHBOARD

Although hospitalizations and deaths are trending down in the United States and here in Virginia, there have been 106,988 new cases, with 26,654,965 confirmed cases and 458,544 deaths Pray for supernatural power, protection, and miracles to follow wherever they go. Please also pray for God’s wisdom for the scientists who are working to develop a cure and vaccine.

Saudi Arabia locked down.. no flights in and out
TANZANIA total lockdown..
SPAIN has declared an emergency extendable until March 2021 * ...
   UK announced one-month lockdown
 FRANCE 2 weeks *
  GERMANY for 4 weeks *
  ITALY also to follow shortly ... *
  ALL these countries have confirmed that the SECOND WAVE is more deadly than the first ... * So we have to be very careful and * KEEP ALL PRECAUTIONS *.
  Please also become a communicator of the ALERT among all friends and family ... PRAY AGAINST THE SECOND WAVE., history tells us that the 2nd wave can be more dangerous than the 1st, as was the case from 1917 to 1919 with the Spanish flu.  Millions of people died.

2) Pray for the USA

Things have taken a challenging turn in the United States, as an administration with no regard for human life, right to life or free speech, and unrestrained commitment to a movement dedicated to sexual perversion has taken office. We still have the words of Jeremiah the prophet who commanded God's people to pray for an idolatrous pagan administration. We implore that you join us to call on God Almighty to extend a covering of protection, peace and reconciliation.

And seek the peace of the city … and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:7, 12-13

Help us to commit our leaders and representatives to You, Lord, knowing the heart of the king is in Your hand and that all governments are subject to Your authority. We ask for a supernatural peace to be upon Washington, D.C., and over the cities and towns across the land (the Republic). And above all, we ask for the hearts of the nation to turn to You, Lord. 

3) PRAY FOR MISSION SOS

We are looking forward to joining Johannes Amritzer and the MISSION SOS team for a powerful outreach. We will preach the gospel, pray for the sick, cast out demons, share our testimonies, dance, act, and love on thousands of people. Throughout the week, we will minister on crowded corners of the city and host a Signs & Wonders Festival. We will meet the dire needs of many across the city through SOS AID, as well as, preach Jesus to the children through SOS KIDS Adventure.

4) In obedience to God’s Word . . .
First of all, then, I urge that requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made in behalf of all people, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. 3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 1Timothy 2:1-4 NASB

5) VISION & WISDOM

Please pray for wisdom for our travel schedule through 2021.  Thanking God that He will lead, guide and order our steps to the places He wants us to be.

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we can ask or think according to the power that works within us, to him be the glory in the church and in Jesus Christ to all generations forever and ever. AMEN
Ephesians 3:20-21


6) FINANCIAL CHALLENGES
AS WE LAUNCH 2021

We appreciate those who pray for us. As you can see from the above schedule, we face an incredible challenge going into this new year with the number of trips back to back. But the opportunities were so significant and ministry needs were so compelling that we really felt led to step out in faith. Please pray that the Lord will speak to the hearts of people who will help to sponsor these flights.

7) FOCUS FOR 2021

As we look forward to 2021, we are asking God to empower us to reach those who are searching for the freedom that is found in Jesus. Please stand in prayer with us against the forces of darkness.
