The Kingdom is
About Having Children
DREAM: Anna and I were in a meeting where a
former pastor who had died was preaching. He was walking
in a big circle around the whole audience. He said, “The
kingdom of God is all about having children.” As I heard
this, I leaned my head upon Anna's shoulder and wrote it
down in my journal because it was quickened to me.
[Later in the middle of the night I was reflecting upon
Abraham and his seed, David and his sons, the long lists
of genealogies, and that Adam was told to be fruitful
WORD TO PONDER KINGDOM OF GOD 10/10/97
The kingdom of God is all about having children. Great
are those who have died to self on behalf of those they
love, and in so doing have released a harvest of many
children. It is My heart to have many children, to
nurture, protect, feed and raise them up into My image.
I have placed My heart within My own, to bear children
and then to serve them, for I delight in procreation,
both physical and spiritual.
“My little children, of whom I travail in birth again
until Christ be formed in you,” (Gal 4:19 KJV)
RHEMA 7/9/00 YOUTH PASSION
DREAM: I walked into a living room where there
were all these young people on the floor. There was a
teacher in the front and as he said something very
simple, but the kids were so passionate and hungry for
the Lord that this simple word caused them to go into
spontaneous worship and praise. I was totally blasted by
the Lord's Presence and I had done nothing but observe.
It was their own passion that backwashed over me and I
was receiving the blessing of their own passion and
seeking Him. I was so blessed by this. I literally felt
the waves of the Holy Spirit in the dream and as I woke
Acts 2:17 NKJV
And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your
sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men
shall see visions,
WORD TO PONDER THE PASSION OF THE YOUTH 7/9/00
There shall come a day when you will walk into a room
full of youth who are hungry for Me. They will be
lounging all over, taking notes and listening intently.
Suddenly something said shall be quickened to them and
they will break out in spontaneous praise. The backwash
of their enthusiasm for Me will cover you with wonderful
blessings as you merely observe and receive. I say this,
because no matter how limited their understanding of Me
is, and no matter what simple thing they are studying,
the passion for Me will reap tremendous blessings upon
you. You shall experience My Presence in places where
you least expect it.
“But Jesus said, "Let the children come to me. Don't
stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as
these." And he put his hands on their heads and blessed
them before he left.” (Matt 19:14-15 NLT)
RHEMA 11/30/98: THE LORD REJOICES OVER THE YOUTH
HEARD: Just around the corner, an event.
Holding the prophetic children. Isn't that amazing? So
many blooming at once. My desire to see the children.
Spiritual destiny. Those that hear My call.
We're not paying our bills. Bought and won. Freedom.
Hold on, someone paid for you. Yes sir, let there be
life. Freely flowing one to another. Rejoice in joy.
Supernatural calling. Called forth from the womb.
Separate unto Me.
A whole nation. Israel. The trumpet sounds. We heard
the call. We figured someone had to do it. Bring us to
the front. Ready for battle. Armed. Weapon.
Stand. A holy nation led by God. Lord free the young
HEARD: Help steward them.
Luke 10:21-22 NKJV
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit and said,
"I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You
have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and
revealed them to babes . Even so, Father, for so it
seemed good in Your sight.
RHEMA 4/15/98 PRAY OVER YOUR CHILDREN'S TRUST
[Lord so many of the children are holding back from
renewal and not fitting in.]
HEARD: Wave. After wave after wave after wave.
Of the Holy Spirit. He didn't want the parents to be
distressed. Children started asking questions. They need
to learn to trust. No short cuts. Little by little.
Degrees of growing up. Development. Touch. Presence.
HEARD: Look around. Can't do that. Have to
make their own decision. It's a matter of trust. They
know how to request.
HEARD: Pray in the Spirit. Sweetie. I love
you, and it would be very, very, very good for you. I
don't want her to know, it's personal. Let go of
control. I am building a foundation. Building blocks.
One on top of the other.
COMMENT: From what I understood of this
conversation is that the Lord's main purpose in their
lives right now is building a foundation of trust and/or
faith in our children's lives. To push them at all in
their growth with the Lord is control. We have to be
content to pray for them and let the Lord build a
foundation of faith.
WORD TO PONDER CHILDREN GROW AT THEIR OWN PACE
Parents sometimes want their children to take giant
leaps of growth when it comes to relationship with Me.
Children overcome their fears and learn to trust a step
at a time. I touch their lives little by little, and
build a solid trust and faith in Me. If you push your
children to grow past their age or growth pattern, it
will only fail and cause them to draw back. Relax and
give Me your children. I will plant a good foundation
and add building blocks of faith, one on top of another
as they become firmly planted along the way.
“I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark
sayings of old, 3 Which we have heard and known, And our
fathers have told us. 4 We will not hide them from their
children, Telling to the generation to come the praises
of the LORD, And His strength and His wonderful works
that He has done.” (Ps 78:2-4 NKJV)
QUICKENED VISITATION In the Form of a Child
OPENED EARS: I woke suddenly in the night. My son had kicked the
common wall between our bedrooms with his foot. I
immediately heard my door open and I thought, “Oh that
must be my son, and he needs me for some reason.”
I opened my eyes to see what he wanted and no one was
there. I thought, “That must have been a spiritual
opening of the ears” and closed my eyes to go back to
sleep. Immediately the Holy Spirit quickened the top of
my head and shoulders with His tangible anointing. I
said, “Oh that feels soooo good!”
I knew I had had a quickening, but I really wanted to
know why the Lord came the way He did.
ANOINTED HANDS: I turned to: “And he shall
turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the
heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and
smite the earth with a curse.” (Malachi 4:6)
I suddenly realized that it was the Lord Who came
through my door, in the disguise of a child. Because I
received the interruption to my sleep with a heart to
help my beloved son, I had received the Lord.
WORD TO PONDER 3/5/98 IN THE FORM OF A CHILD
I come to you in many ways and you are learning to
discern My voice. Because you have a heart to receive My
children, I am going to quicken you and transform you in
the midst of a generation of turning the hearts of
children and parents towards one another. My quickening
power shall come upon you and you shall receive My
power, My operation into higher revelation and heavenly
“Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy
spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. 11
Quicken me, O LORD, for thy name's sake: for thy
righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.” (Ps
