We drove to Heidi Baker’s meeting (Albany Oregon) and it was so incredible last night.  She shared that when the Lord called her 11 years ago, one of the things she saw in her 7 days and 7 nights glued to the floor under His Spirit, was Him pouring out a cup from His side and asking her to drink it.  It was the cup of suffering and the cup of joy.  After over 1 millions souls to Jesus, over 7,000 church plants, adopting, feeding and living with over 1,000 orphans, she said she never understood that part of the vision until the last 2 months. 


I sat on the edge of my seat as she described how she was ready to go home to Jesus now and wanted to die.  The suffering of the famine, floods, disease and death were so horrendous in her country, it was overwhelming to her.  Several times the Lord told her to finish her assignment and to release her sons.  Then in the midst of her sharing, I suddenly understood her pain.  I saw her mother’s heart.  She has been dealing with the sufferings of Mozambique all along.  And they have been devastating and God has given her the miracles of the food, salvations and healings, but she was with her children when she did so.


The Lord was calling her to accept traveling engagements around the world, and all she wanted to do was be in Mozambique with her children.  She was on this fancy boat going somewhere, and she was crying out in desperation, “Get me off this boat, I want to go home!!”   The Lord told her on the boat, “Finish your assignment and release your sons.”  So she went on in her journey and on 3/22 in the middle of a meeting where people had fallen on the floor all around her, someone came up to her and handed her a cell phone.  It was one of her sons and he was screaming and crying, “Mom there are missiles going off everywhere!!!!”  She could hear the missiles hitting on the phone.  She ran out into the parking lot and said Mother Bear kicked in.  She told the devil to leave her kids alone and then she prayed Psalm 91 over them. 


Again she was in deep desperation and wanted to go back home to her kids.  The Lord again said, “Finish your assignment and release your sons.”   The next day the missiles stopped blowing up in the yard and she found out that all of her 1000+ children had run to the prayer room connected to her home and they worshipped and sang at the top of their lungs through the whole thing.  On their way, they saw heads blown off and flying through the air, arms missing, babies thrown out of their mother’s arms.  And Heidi’s dear children all gathered and not one hair on their head was missing.  This was her cup of joy.



Ps 91:16  NKJV

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust."

3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. 4 He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. 5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. 8 Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, 10 No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; 11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. 12 In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. 13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

14 "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. 15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation."


They had 2 missiles shoot through 2 of their buildings and one missile explode shrapnel in a third.  But no one was touched in her family, helpers and partners.  They literally lived through Psalm 91.   How she wanted to go home and hold her children who had been terrorized!!  But she released her sons.


Her sons were given keys to their trucks and went to the villages and distributed food, preached the gospel, healed the sick and carried on the work.  She said, “These are my sons!”  These were the garbage children who only knew stealing and violence.  You never heard such a precious mom’s heart when she said, “These are my sons!”  This was her cup of joy.


I could clearly hear the prophetic parable and divine time line that her sons were launched in the midst of the storm and she was to release them into their destinies so she could step into hers. I feel the parable is connected with the line of demarcation that I have carried all this time. I dont know if Heidi was aware that she was a living parable at the tip of the arrow, proclaiming a corporate Word over His people as she was merely sharing her testimony.  The Lord has been dealing with me for 7 months that it was time to lay down old intercessions and let go and walk into new places.  This has been very heart rendering for me to do, because I have a passionate mother’s heart over what I have carried for so long.  Since that time, He has been telling me to spiritually maintain what I have gained through intercession, but to release the carrying of such.


Heidi shared a few other poignant things.  One was that she just hugged and loved people and that is how they were delivered from their demons and received their miracles of healing.  She released people and children to pray for one  another.  And she shared how when she watches the fishers draw in their nets, they pull and sing, pull and sing.  It is all one unified effort as they work together to gather a huge net.  She compared it to the lone man fisher to brings in his one fish. She said we have to work together to gather the harvest that is there. 


She said another thing, she said do not stay in that despair of suffering.  She said if you do, you will die.  She said in His Presence is the fullness of joy and you have got to live there.  She quoted the same verse I have been wrestling over for several months, feeling like I had accomplished all He had asked me to do in intercessory assignments, harvesting rhema and getting the nursery ready to feed the harvest.  I too have yearned to go home until He reminded me there was one vision not yet fulfilled:  “Gentlemen, we shall rebuild.”


Phil 1:21-26 NKJV

For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell. For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you. And being confident of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith, that your rejoicing for me may be more abundant in Jesus Christ by my coming to you again.


Acts 15:16-17 NKJV

‘After! this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up; So that the rest of mankind may seek the LORD, even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, says the LORD who does all these things.'  


HEARD 4/17/07:  We’re coming through.  To equip you tangibly.  Help you.


PIX:  I saw the opening of my zippered case that holds my pocket pc, notebook, and pen.  I only use that case when attending meetings and not out on errands.  I use another case for that.


HEARD:  Your back pocket.  We’ll all be there.


PIX:  I saw a blank resume with two blank circles on it.  Inside the circles, there were supposed to be photographs.  


HEARD:  Your spiritual resume.


I knew that the Lord was telling me that I had another spiritual resume that had not yet been written and He was giving me a choice.


PROPHETIC BLOOPER:  I just spoke the following into my recorder:  “Your spiritual resume, write a Road to Ponder on it.”  (Oops I meant Word to Ponder) 



I have given many parents, ministries and intercessors the callings of holding precious children in their wombs of faith, and raising them up.  It is time to release those they carried and let them soar on the wings of faith.  Release them into their giftings, callings, and destinies.  Allow them full access, give them the keys to the provisions and release your dove children!


I have need of you says the Lord.  There is another generation of youth that are being born even now.  You have not seen their faces, and it is hard to turn your bonding from one child to another.  It is hard to let go of the ones in whom you have invested so much, and it is hard to start over.  Beloved, you are NOT starting over.  Your nest, provision, equipping is built.  The nations need you to impart to them what I have imparted to you.  They need to see your face, and hear your testimony and come into your arms, for they are MY arms reaching out to the lost.  Simply go out and gather.  Collect, gather in your arms of love, and bring them the wealth of what has already been built.  I will send the reaping angels with you, and you shall gather a new generation of anointed ones who will use your foundations and platforms laid with much sacrifice, and they shall be raised up for My greater works.  Reach, stretch, invite and gather with My loving and long arms.


Luke 10:1-3 NKJV

After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. Then He said to them, "The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.
