“A Prophetic Miracle! What Is the Lord Saying?”

Beloved Intercessor,
Loving greetings from Engeltal, Valley of Angels! Philip gave me a beautiful
gift for Christmas that has a tremendous prophetic meaning. I’ll tell you
more about it below, but first, I want to give you an update since our last
prayer letter to encourage you as you have helped us pray.

Finances Update: We give glory and praise to the Lord and a huge thank
you to those who gave to help us pay the December bills. I believe that we
will have enough in the Israel Fund to be able to pay the taxes that come
up in January, hallelujah! And one faithful donor gave a generous sum that
we will use to help bring down what we owe on the credit cards. We are so
very grateful!

Please continue to pray with us that the Lord will raise up His faithful group
of monthly givers for 2023. Here’s a link to our secure donation page on our
website in case you are feeling led by the Lord to give in that manner:
https://secure.paperlesstrans.com/GlobalOutpouring. When you use this
secure link, there is an opportunity to set up a recurring transaction that will
automatically charge your card on the date you specify each month. It’s like
making a pledge and putting feet on it—that way you don’t have to
remember to write a check each month and your faithfulness will be

We are looking forward to the Lord speaking to people to come alongside
us to help shoulder the needs for missions, the podcast, additional
equipment for the A/V Department, general operating expenses,
maintenance, and continuing the remodeling projects around the camp.

4-Wheel-Drive Vans: A few months ago, I introduced the need for an
improvement in our vans due to the ruggedness of the roads into our
valley. We are so grateful to those who gave, and we are tucking that
money away as it accumulates. Sadly, the company we thought to buy
them from decided not to sell. That doesn’t change our need, but we will
continue to watch and trust the Lord to fulfill His plan His way.

Our Christmas Miracle and Word for 2023: When Philip was praying
about what to give me for Christmas, the idea came to him to contact our
dear friend, Rona Spiropoulos, to have her make me a necklace and
earrings. We were sitting by the fireplace, enjoying the warmth and
ambiance of the gas log when I opened the present on Christmas, It was a
delightfully surprise! It’s VERY beautiful (as are all of her creations), and I
noticed a particular type of clay bead that she used nineteen times in the
project (seventeen in the necklace and one in each earring). Each of those
clay beads had a little swirl with a flat bottom stamped in it five times. As I
looked at the swirls, I thought that I recognized the Hebrew letter “Pey.”

I immediately texted Rona: “I just opened my Christmas present that you
made. Beautiful! It’s so prophetic with the beads that have the Hebrew
letter Pey on them!!! Where did you find those???”

Rona replied, “Wow!! I didn’t realize that. When I was praying about what
beads to use, I felt those where the right ones. Amazing!!”

Then I began to have second thoughts. “I’d better make sure that I’m right
about the letter Pey.” I’m about a first grader when it comes to my Hebrew
studies. So, I got up from my chair to go and research in my study books.
Before I could take a step, I saw a little yellow paper on the floor. When I
picked it up, I saw that it had Hebrew writing on it, and the first letter was a
Pey. The word had the transliteration above it: “pah-too-aH” (the last letter
is that harsh, guttural ch sound as in Bach, or the Spanish J sound like
Juan). The second word is “sah-goor.” I turned it over and discovered that
this was a Hebrew vocabulary flashcard. The words mean “open” and
“closed.” On the end of the English side was the word “FIRE” written in (I
believe) Sister Gwen Shaw’s handwriting! We have no idea how that little
paper arrived in the living room right next to my chair when I needed that
confirmation. We live in the home where she lived and from which she
departed ten years ago (January 13, 2013), but we had never seen it in all
these years!

We knew that it was a message from the Lord about our part in what He is
doing in the coming days, months, and years! Perhaps you already know that
Hebrew letters have a numerical value and often the number of the
year might spell a word. The current Hebrew calendar year is 5783. Pey
has a numerical value of 80, and it is also a word that means “mouth.” So,
this entire decade is about what comes from our mouths. It’s about what we
speak or say. You know from Proverbs 18:21 that “life and death are in the
power of the tongue,” and that all of creation is upheld by word of the Lord’s
power (Hebrews 1:3). You also know that He made us in His image, so our
words are weighty!

In the beginning of this “mouth decade,” there was a strong attempt by the
forever loser to silence us by locking us down into our homes and putting a
mask over our mouths. He even influenced us to keep our mouths busy
talking about the nefarious activities involved, instead of rising up in the
anointing of the Holy Spirit to declare His mighty healing virtue that He paid
for in His suffering. (I repent!!!)

I believe the Lord is saying that as we continue in this decade, we must
open our mouths to declare what we acquire in our intimacy with our Father
Who is a Consuming Fire. We recorded a podcast about this that you can
listen to for more of the story. Click here to listen.

The Mouth of the Sword: The Hebrew word, pey, is also used in the
expression “the edge (mouth) of the sword” in multiple instances in
scripture. This gives us a deeper understanding of how “the Word of God is
quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even
to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and
is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). In
both Hebrew and Greek, the edge of a sword is its mouth. In Revelation
1:6, we see that the Resurrected Christ is described as having a two-edged
sword coming out of His mouth. His words in our mouth with the fire of His
Holy Spirit in our hearts will come forth to accomplish His purposes in the
earth, cutting down the evil spiritual structures that have been influencing
the inhabitants. Let us work with Him to release the captives!

The Double Portion: When referring to the inheritance of the firstborn and
the request of Elisha to Elijah, the expression “double portion” uses the
word pey. It’s like saying “twice the portion,” or “duplicated portion.” When
we dedicate ourselves to the Lord as we join this ministry, the prayer ends
with, “Send the fire and burn up the sacrifice! Fill me with Thy Holy Spirit
and give me a double portion of Thine anointing.” I believe that we are in
the season of receiving a fresh baptism of fire in a double portion (at least)
of what was poured out on the Day of Pentecost in Acts chapter two! What
happened then was the first fruits of what our Father is planning to do when
He pours out His Spirit on ALL FLESH!

Tongues of Fire: I recently heard a YouTube video where the minister (a
seer) described “tongues of fire” that he would see sometimes in meetings.
It’s far greater than what artists have depicted through the centuries! “I’m
looking at one person and hovering about six inches above their head was,
if you imagine, maybe a Valentine’s heart turned upside down, or an aspen
leaf, or cottonwood leaf that’s kind of heart shaped. So that’s the general
shape hovering about six inches or so above a person’s head, and it would
be a massive flame. And then all over it were little flames like in a fireplace,
going—the way they pop up and disappear and move. So, this whole thing
is like a burning flame about eighteen inches in total height, a burning flame
with lots of little tongues of flame over it.” It’s time for a fresh baptism of fire
that will write our Father’s Word in our hearts and in our minds and take
over our speech to reach the nations!

Let’s get ready as the Bride, filled with the love and passion of the
Bridegroom. Imagine the lighting of the “Unity Candle” at that great
Wedding where our flame becomes one with His! Open your mouth and
express His Love in the earth! Change the atmosphere with your words!
Take authority where He has worked His authority over you in you! Declare
His greatness and speak His heart!

It’s Time to Enter Our Promises: When Moses was instructing the
Children of Israel just before they entered the Promised Land, he said,
“Therefore understand today that Yehovah your God is He who goes over
before you as a consuming fire. He will destroy them and bring them down
before you; so, you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, as
Yehovah has said to you” (Deuteronomy 9:3). Our Father has plans in
these days to do a quick work in answer to our millennia of prayers that ask
Him to “deliver us from evil”! Let’s get our hearts and thinking in line with
Him and His Word so that the words that come from our mouths will agree
with Him and His purposes, for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth
speaks (Luke 6:45). Let your heart be filled with fire and the expectation of
receiving a double portion inheritance in the coming year!

We are exceedingly grateful! Thank you so much for uniting your heart
with our Father’s and ours as we follow Him. We deeply appreciate your
prayers and gifts!
