|God Promise - Your Past Year's Testing Wll Cause You to Overcome|
The Lindsay House Founder had a life-changing encounter just one week before 9/11/01.
The venue was the Founder's Inn, on the campus of CBN and Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
The event, a prophetic prayer conference. While volunteering at the information booth, she was engaged in a brief conversation with Dr. Chuck Pierce, who immediately told his assistant standing there, to enlist her as an intercessor for the Glory of Zion Ministry. Ever since that day a mutual communication has been in place. We cannot recommend this ministry highly enough - with its integrity and global outreaches including the ongoing presence in Israel of part of the Pierce family. This ministry offers books, Bible courses, and music CDs of highest quality.
[An email dated December 17, 2014, from Dr. Chuck Pierce of Glory of Zion Ministries in Denton, Texas, brought the following:]
Day 12 of 21 Days: Your Testing from the Past Year Will Cause You to Overcome!
I feel it would be very beneficial for each one of us to review why Hanukkah was celebrated. Antiochus IV Epiphanes, a Syrian king, was adamant that the Jews reject their faith and adopt a Greek mindset. He erected a statue to Zeus in the Temple, and then profaned the holy altar by sacrificing a pig. A family living outside Jerusalem made a stand. The father, Mattathais, was a priest with five sons. One of his sons was named Judah. Judah came to be called Maccabee, the " Hammer." They revolted, retook the Temple, cleansed it, and rededicated it to the Lord. Hanukkah is the Hebrew word for dedication. One of the major principles is PERSEVERANCE IN THE MIDST OF YOUR WARFARE.
When you are being tested, never forget: GOD IS ABLE! GOD IS ABLE TO BRING FORTH THE RESOURCES, STRENGTH, VALOR, POWER, STRATEGY, & RICHES YOU NEED! Many of us are moving forward, but have grown weary in our journey and are saying, "Lord, I need help!" Moses was in the same place, when Jethro told him that he was not able to do everything for the people and needed help. Let the Lord give you His creative strategy of help!
Memorize Exodus 18:18.
A testing produces a testimony!
I hear the Lord saying:
'What you were tested with in this past season, the enemy will come again with that test. But this time you will arise and say, 'I'm not who you tested in the last season!' And the enemy will now say, 'I have stepped into the place of my demise.'
"The LORD would remind you: 'I will form you as a new, sharp, threshing instrument and you will be victorious in your next test.' The next 3 months will be a forming time for you! I AM forming something within you. In My hand I will form you! I WILL RELEASE SUPERNATURAL DISCERNMENT, POWER AND GIFTING TO YOU! I have dunamis power. If you ask for wisdom, rather than riches, I will give abundantly. If you need riches to accomplish My covenant purpose, then I will give you wisdom to overthrow the power that is covering your supply. Let Me activate the gifts in you, so you accomplish all you place your hand on to do. Let Me form you as a new weapon and instrument that is ready for My use! I AM ABLE TO MAKE YOU PREVAIL OVER YOUR ENEMIES! Listen not to the devil, or his messenger, as he attempts to convince you that some things are too big to overcome. Remember Goliath who spoke for 40 days to remove the faith and triumphant strength of My children. Be like David! Remember my CAUSE! Keep a pure, simple, faith in MY covenant word. Your faith and My power will destroy the giant that was contesting My cause and promise."
