Loving greetings from Engeltal! It is so good to be home! We have been gone for more than six of the last seven and a half weeks, and it is a great blessing to be back for the beginning of the spring. The redbuds are in full blossom and the dogwoods are getting a good start in blazing their cross-shaped blooms during this season when we celebrate our Lord’s suffering and resurrection.
Prayer Assignment Report: Thank you for your prayer backing as our team “Contended for the Covenants” in worship, intercession, and redeeming of the Land in Israel. After spending three days in worship in the Galilee with Arni and Yonit Klein, we returned to Jerusalem to receive teaching on the Covenant for the Land of Israel that God promised to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The altars that Abraham and Jacob built, along with 80% of biblical locations, are in what the world refers to as the “West Bank.” We were able to go to the places where the Lord appeared to Abraham and where he built altars. We worshipped the Lord, read scriptures, repented for the sins that have taken place there, and upheld the mighty power of the Blood of the New Covenant, asking for mercy and forgiveness. We asked the Lord to send His hosts to deal with the darkness and restore His original intent upon the Land. We could sense the Presence of Almighty God in those places and felt His power and pleasure to answer prayer prayed with faith in the Power of the Blood of Jesus Christ!
Gene will provide more about our experiences in his portion.
While we were in Berlin, the Lord spoke to me in my journal about the Blood:
Be in awe at the power of the Blood of Jesus Christ! As you meditate on that awesome power, your awareness of its dunamis ability to destroy the powers of darkness will increase and so will your authority.
Revelation of the power of the Blood will cause the veil of deception that blinds you and others to be torn, destroyed, and shredded. The threatened possibilities of Satan collapse as you gain understanding. You will see that your enemy maintains his kingdom by mere projections, and that the chains he uses melt when they are challenged by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony.
When you continue to grow in the knowledge of and intimate interaction with the Blood, the fear of death will lose its grip over your soul. You will become one with the crucified and resurrected Christ.
Normal human blood has the curse of death upon it because of sin, but the Blood of Christ has no sin. When a red blood cell dies in normal human blood, its light goes out, but because the Blood of Christ has no sin, the light remains on and blazingly defeats darkness wherever it is applied.
Then He spoke about another subject:
I see the finished building. Like the architect and artist who render plans and drawings, I can see what the building will be even before the ground is broken.
Throughout the “Church Age,” there have been stages of the building process that have been ugly and unkempt. Onlookers couldn’t see any beauty and rejected My building.
We are now coming to the finishing stage where My purposes are beginning to be evident. The whole building, fitly framed and fully furnished, will be welcomed by the inhabitants of the earth, as My people learn to resonate with the sounds of Heaven.
On the individual level, I want to soak you in My love so that you will represent Me as I Am. The wounds you have received as our adversary has attempted to destroy you before you could fulfill My purpose for you and in you, will become outlets of My indwelling Glory.
As you soak in My Presence, I will inscribe My monogram on your every cell, bringing them into My image, restoring what was lost at the fall in Eden.
I love you! Continue to process this truth until My name and nature are formed in every part of your being. I see you as perfect — the final product as yet not fully formed, but what shall be because of My processing and My Presence. I make up what you lack, so My strength is made perfect in your weakness. I love you with an everlasting love.

We are coming together as one cross-generational body to celebrate the goodness of the Lord and be filled with His Glory to participate in His dream for the nations to know Him.
