Loving greetings from Engeltal! Our “Generation Awakening” event (previously known as the Anointed Youth and Young Adults Retreat) was TREMENDOUS!!! All those who attended experienced God’s Presence in a powerful way!
Our team had moved our audio and video equipment into the Valley from the Ozark Glory Tabernacle to our Maranatha Tabernacle as that is normally the home of this event. Then we usually keep it in the Valley for the winter so that we can continue to broadcast our Friday Night Live Worship services regardless of the weather. But the day before the event was to start, a huge mud hole developed on the road out to Maranatha. Timm worked hard to make it passable and at 2:30 p.m. on the starting day, some of our leaders gathered to assess the situation. It was a mess, and there was more rain in the weather forecast, so we decided to quickly shift gears and move the event to Torah Hall in our office building. We are thankful to the team that made it happen under Timm’s supervision. Thankfully, the size of the group was able to fit there.
“They’re back!” That evening in the opening service, Jennifer Arnold had vision of the angels in that room excitedly shouting, “They’re back!” I related how Pat Holloran, the seer, had encountered an enormous, high-ranking angel in that room when he toured Engeltal a few years ago. We felt the approval of the Lord for having obeyed His leading to move the meetings there. The transition was smooth and everyone enjoyed the intimacy of the new venue.
The worship was anointed and heart-moving. The campers were engaged and touched by God in many ways. We heard many testimonies of how God had changed their lives, glory to His Name! It was the finest array of Youth and Young Adults we have ever had attend. They were hungry for God and flowed together beautifully with us to bring glory to the Lord.
Sadly, we didn’t have enough time or space to set up our normal video equipment, so we couldn’t stream the event nor do we have DVDs of the services, but we have CDs available of the anointed messages (see below).
Overcoming Childhood Wounds: I was asked to do a three-part workshop based on Dr. Paul Hegstrom’s book, Broken Children, Grown Up Pain. We were able to stream most of it onto our End-Time Handmaidens & Servants YouTube channel,* so you can enjoy the overview of how we forgive and apply the Word of God to overcome the wounds we have experienced in our childhood. Rejection, incest, sexual molestation, emotional and physical abuse in children will cause an arresting of emotional development and the ability to reason. Sometimes we don’t know what happened (and we don’t need to know), but we realize that sometimes we get triggered into childish behavior. These keys will help us “put away childish things” (1 Corinthians 13:11) and grow into mature sons and daughters of God whom He will use to overcome the enemy/Forever Loser.
A Word for 2019: As we are entering 2019, I feel that we must lay aside every weight and the distractions and sins that so easily beset us. We must enter into persistent prayer like never before and intercede for the lost. We must walk in the Spirit like never before. We must practice walking in a continuous awareness and engagement with the Holy Spirit. We are pressing forward for an awakening to the Presence of God in the earth. The great “Outpouring” has begun and will only increase in intensity. It will be beyond our wildest dreams! “For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14).
I would like to share with you something I received in my journal as I was waiting on God on January 2, 2019.
My mind is picturing police on motorcycles and the focus goes to their helmets. I am drawn to consider the new technologies that have been developed for stronger, lighter, more protective, bulletproof materials. Helmets and vests are now lighter weight, but give better protection.
In 2019 prepare yourselves in the spirit for the battles ahead by investing time and focus into prayer and meditation with the Holy Spirit. This will strengthen your armor with a new “faith substance” that is being released in this new season and era.
Your enemy, the accuser, the Forever Loser, has planned new strategies. Just like the Philistines bringing out Goliath with his mocking challenge was a new strategy in its time, so have the powers of the Forever Loser’s team mustered new strategies to weaken the resolve of the Church with fear.
In this time now, I am preparing a remnant of “Davids” who are engaging Me in worship and target practice with “bears” and “lions,” building their relationship with and confidence in Me. They will know Me well enough to become incensed with righteous indignation over the strategy that will shortly arise from the Loser’s camp. They will fearlessly stride into the battlefield to confront the gigantic foe and bring it down with their tried and true weapons that are smaller and more lightweight than expected. They will vanquish the strong man and awaken the ranks of their brethren to chase down and defeat the Losers.
I am calling you to the shepherds’ fields in this season. David pastured his father’s sheep in the same field where Ruth met Boaz and where the angels later brought good tidings of great joy.
You are living in a place of a Fountain of Living Water, a Revival Center. Press into My Presence in the coming days for the release of the fresh anointing and artesian “gusher” that will usher in revival, awakening, and reformation. As you press in, I will equip you with new, effective weapons in the Spirit and prepare you for My role
for you in the coming move. This applies throughout the ranks of this ministry. Press in like never before. The pasture of the sheep will become the harvest fields.
Thank You! We are continually thankful for your heartfelt prayers and financial support! May the Glory of the Lord overflow in your life, your loved ones, and all that concerns you, bringing health, strength, and the Lord’s loving Presence. Remember to speak what the Lord says about the “new man” in your loved ones’ lives, instead of describing where the “old man” is living and how he’s behaving now. God sees the finished product—prophesy that, speaking those things which are not as though they were (Romans 4:17).
Your handmaiden and servant,
Sharon and Philip
