RHEMA 4/17/07 RELEASE THE SONS AND RELEASE YOURSELF
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
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
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
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
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
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
WORD TO PONDER: RELEASE THE SONS!!!! 4/17/07
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.
