Living the Dream

"Divine Business:

"Two business revivalists in the insurance industry had a business meeting in New York. One was from the West coast and the other had responsibility for northeast portion of US market. He took over the Manhattan office in 2011. Of the 56 offices in the northeast, Manhattan was the worst. But a year after taking it over, Manhattan became 'office of the year.'

All he did different was “God, I’ve GOT to experience your Kingdom in this office” and would pray each morning before people arrived. The west coast business revivalist had a word for him: “Holy Spirit wants you to know your sleepless nights will stop now.” He began to weep. He had been diagnosed with a condition of a racing heart and the previous three nights hadn’t been able to sleep. Last 5-10mins of their business meeting was spent just praying in their God-language and enjoying the Presence and peace of God. Blake Schellenberg, Portland, OR (April, 2013)"

Living the Dream

"Sixteen Years of Sciatica Healed in Atmosphere:

"A team was in a mid- week church meeting in Guatemala City telling testimonies of what God is doing with ordinary people all over the world. One of the testimonies was of Jenna who was healed from ten years of excruciating sciatica pain. At the end of the meeting the team got everyone with any pain similar to the testimonies to stand.

Before praying they asked the people to check whether God had already healed them in the atmosphere of His Presence. Sure enough one woman started weeping as she realized the painful sciatica she had since the birth of her child sixteen years ago was completely gone. She walked around and stretched from side to side to show that she could no longer feel any pain. Weeping she was overwhelmed by the love of Jesus. April, 2015

Another person had fractured a part of their shoulder from a cycling accident two months ago. They had X-rays to prove it. When asked to demonstrate the healing they fully rotated their arm/shoulder. Asked what else he could do to test it, he said “a push up.” So next thing he was doing push ups at the front of the service.

Another woman had damaged her cartilage in right knee three years ago. She happily crouched down showing what she ‘couldn’t’ do. She also had repetitive strain injury in her left hand/arm for six months that disappeared. Andy Mason, Guatemala (April, 2015)"

Tomorrow Today

by Lynette Love

"A Little Taste of Jesus Growing Up

"I asked Jesus what it was like to grow up with His family. He said to me with much joy in His voice, "I loved My parents and My brothers and sisters so very much. I was just like any other little boy, I had fun and I played games. I loved telling stories; I told stories of My Father's Kingdom and then we would all dress up as kings and queens.

Encounters with the King photograph
Encounters with the King
Don't think that when I changed the water into wine it was the first miracle. No! My mother knew what I could do because when we sat around the dinner table as a family and we didn't have enough to eat, I would thank my Heavenly Father, bless the food and watch it multiply; such fun!"

I could hear the delight in Jesus' voice when he told me this story."

Tomorrow Today is a series of excerpts from books by Lynette Love, who regularly encounters heaven - and Jesus - and Holy Spirit - and Father - now, in this life, today.

Living the Dream

"Healing and Discipleship on the Job (Legally…)

"One day where I work at a landscape construction company, I was at the main office before heading out to a job and I saw a co-worker of mine limping out of the office. I had already talked to him about Jesus before and showed him a video of a leg growing out. I asked him as he walked by if I could pray for his knee. He allowed me to and it got healed!!

A guy who had just started the day before saw this all happen and was surprised, he made a comment like “oh look, it's EJ the healer” so I told him “no it's actually Jesus the healer and I’m just a son”. He thought that was cool and mentioned he didn’t really know much about Jesus but wanted to know more.

After that my co-worker who wants to be a pastor and my new co-worker who wants to know Jesus more and I had to ride to a job together, which is an hour drive, so naturally I and my pastor-to-be friend preached the gospel to him for an hour. My new co-worker got saved in the car that morning!!!

The days following that we had to keep riding in the car together each morning and afternoon and Holy Spirit would tell me different things to teach my newly saved co-worker on the rides. I had the privilege to teach him how to hear God’s voice! EJ Wall, Olympia, WA (Oct, 2015)"

"Parts Department

"I see a huge storeroom. Inside it, the shelves on all walls are filled with living human body parts. It is obvious that they are for people of different nations and all ages. Hearts are beating, pulsing with life. Shelves of eyes and ears, limbs, rolls of skin... Every body-part is here. It's all here and easily accessible.

Encounters of Heaven photograph
Encounters of Heaven
I hear prayers of those on earth calling out in the Name of Jesus for healing. In the middle of the room there is glorious light.

An angel stands with a clipboard taking notes - recording where every assigned part is going. The parts are shooting out through the light quite fast. Seems like they are going out in response to people's prayers. As parts go out supply is replenished. Healing is always available. There's no sickness in Heaven and no incompleteness

The Lord says, "By faith take these healings. Stand on My word." "

"Miracles in Atmosphere:

"Women in 50's had arthritis and pain in both ankles since high school when she broke one and repeatedly sprained it over the years. Tonight at a meeting we told testimonies of Jesus healing people and then got people with pain to stand up and check it out. Her response was shock... "I can't believe what is going on with me!" Jesus healed her ankles in the atmosphere. No one prayed for her. She instantly had no pain and could move them fully. She started jumping around with no pain and was crying and laughing at them same time. Kathy, Russell, PA (Sep 2014)"

"Sit with Me, My Child

"I am woken by the Lord in the early hours of the morning. His voice comes to me like crashing waves on the shore. My heart responds and I an wide awake.

Encounters with the King photograph
Encounters with the King
"My child, I AM the Lord God Almighty: I can reveal to you the deep mysteries of the oceans, things that man has not seen or heard. I can reveal to you the treasures of the Heavens and the deep secrets of My galaxies.l Is there anything too hard for Me, your God? No! There is nothing impossible to Me."

Then with a voice softened to a quiet whisper He confesses, "But most of all I long to reveal Myself to those who truly love Me. Come and sit with Me, come to your Father."

Instantly we are sitting on a jetty, dangling our feet in a river.

"Above all," he admits, "My children are my most desired possession. I desire to be with them and there in a place of intimacy and silence I will reveal Myself." "

Living the Dream

"Hearing God, laying sod!

"So my boss this summer hired me knowing that I had attended Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry and encouraged me to bring Heaven to his business. After talking to Holy Spirit I felt that I needed to pray for efficiency for my work crew.

After I started praying for efficiency we had a job where we had to lay sod. My co-worker, whom also hears Holy Spirit, felt that we needed to get 100ft extra sod than was put on the estimate. We laid the sod that day and there was the perfect amount to the point that we only had about one wheel barrow full of scraps when normally crews have a whole pallet or more left over.

On a different day I had to use the toilet really bad but we did not bring our porta-toilet with us to the job. So I looked on my map to see what were the nearest options for using a toilet. I found that in one direction there were a couple restaurants and in the other was our supply store for rock and gravel. I felt that it’d be best to go to the supply store to use the toilet because they already know us.

While I was there I got a text from my co-worker to go to the supply store and get a full load of gravel. It was great because I was already there and he didn’t know it. When I was there I didn’t really know what a full load was so I asked the guys inside what it was and we decided on 4yrds. I got my load and as I was leaving my coworker texted me that I needed to get 4yrds!!" EJ Wall, WA (Oct, 2015)"
