Love and greetings from Engeltal! We are gearing up for the big events coming in July, August and September! The place is abuzz with activity, cleaning, painting, beautifying, making repairs, renovating, etc. We are moving ahead in faith that the costs will be covered by the time the bills come in! Thanks for helping us pray that through.
Surrounded by Love: I’ve been so busy today getting website and registration details ready for the events that are coming up that I’ve had a challenge getting here to write! I’ve been praying about it for days, but until a few minutes ago, I didn’t have a clear inspiration from the Holy Spirit. Then I heard “Surrounded by Love.” Here’s what I’m hearing the Lord saying (although it seems personal to me, I believe you can glean from it as well):
My Love is your armor of light [“The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. … But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts” (Romans 13:12, 14 NKJV)].
As you put Me on in the spirit, My Presence will make you a “shining one” in this time of increasing darkness. Your shining of My Presence, My Love, will cause darkness to flee wherever you go. Your presence carrying My Presence will change the atmosphere. Release My Glory; release My love. Let Me shine on your countenance as you look at people.
My Love will be a filter through which you look. You will begin to see more clearly in the spirit realm as you look through My love. My Love will help you to filter out the desires of the flesh and keep your focus on Me and My purposes for you. Your flesh is still getting too much of your attention. You are being put on a fast track to catch you up to where you should be by now, so you can expect the pressure to be intense. But don’t fear! It’s the pressure of the weight of My Glory, My Love. Just keep yielding to it and I, the Master Potter, will finish the preparations necessary for your next assignments.
“The Lord alone is our radiant hope and we trust in him with all our hearts. His wraparound presence will strengthen us” (Psalms 33:20 TPT).
“God’s glory is all around me! His wraparound presence is all I need, for the Lord is my Savior, my hero, and my life-giving strength” (Psalms 62:7 TPT).
“The lovers of God will be glad, rejoicing in the Lord. They will be found in his glorious wraparound presence, singing songs of praise to God!” (Psalms 64:10 TPT).
“So my conclusion is this: Many are the sorrows and frustrations of those who don’t come clean with God. But when you trust in the Lord for forgiveness, his wraparound love will surround you” (Psalms 32:10 TPT).
Global Outpouring Convention 2023 is coming in about a month! Wow! The time is racing! Come and be with us the evening of Tuesday, July 4-Friday evening, July 7 at the Glory Tabernacle! The worship is always glorious as we focus our attention on the audience of One! The speakers, including Tony Kemp, Etienne Blom, Claren McQueen, Rona Spiropoulos, and me, always bring meaty messages from the Word of God. You will be deeply blessed by the life-changing preaching and teaching. You will make new relationships for God’s eternal purposes. Registration is now open. See the event on our website and sign up! We have room for some at Engeltal.

Register soon as space is limited!
Global Outpouring Podcast: Philip and I have been recording interviews with our convention speakers. The one with Etienne Blom came out on Tuesday—it’s powerful! Rona Spiropoulos will be on this coming Tuesday and it’s great too. The wonderful thing about podcasts is that you can listen to any episode whenever you want! You can find it on our YouTube channel, our website, and on all the major podcast platforms.
Generation Awakening—Youth and Young Adults Retreat: Mark your calendar for August 9-12. We have the event up on our website now and registration should be operative during the weekend, if not sooner. This is a marvelous opportunity for ages 15-30 to connect, make new friends, have a spiritual reality check, recharge and reignite with truth before returning to school. The cost is $75 and you can bring a friend for $25. Check it out on our website and register.
School of the Supernatural—Translation by Faith, September 4-9, 2023: Bruce and Reshma Allen, and Michael and Gordana Van Vlymen will be with us once again to bring a very clear, scripture-based teaching about some of the supernatural signs, wonders, and miracles that we should be expecting as we yield ourselves fully to the Lord in loving obedience to Him. Come for this school and learn! The cost is $550, which includes tuition for six days of classes, seven nights’ accommodations, and all your meals. Registration is ready for you. Click here for more information.
Thank you so much! We understand that many have received the newsletter we sent out recently, and we are grateful to all who are helping us through their giving. We are still standing in faith for the bills to be paid (including the credit cards). Thank you for your prayers as we press forward, surrounded by the Love of God.
Your handmaiden and servant,
Sharon and Philip
Encouraging word from one of our prophetic seer Handmaiden’s:
Given to Sheryl Simpers by the Lord, morning prayer 5-24-23:
I was standing before Jesus. He said, “These are glorious days for those who seek Me. You will see Me show Myself strong on your behalf because your hearts are committed to Me and are completely Mine. 2 Chronicles 16:9. I have raised you up for such a time as this. You are anointed and appointed to work with Me under My direction to pray with unified power for My Kingdom and My will to be manifested in the earth. Be encouraged. Be really encouraged! Your prayers with Me have been accomplishing much in America, in Israel, in the Church, and in the nations. My Beloved Warriors, MUCH has been accomplished that you do not see in the natural, but you will see. Stay the course. Don’t give up. Darkness is covering the earth and gross darkness the people, but My glory is risen upon you (Isaiah 60:1-2) and will increase as you stay in My presence and in My Word. It will be seen on you in greater and greater measure so that people will come to My light in you. Some will fall before you asking how they can be saved. There will be many suddenlies in the natural realm because you have been faithful to pray, even for years. Expect your loved ones who are not walking with Me to now turn to Me with their whole hearts and to step into their destinies that I have created them for. Your prayers for them are now bearing fruit for My Kingdom purposes. Rejoice and be glad! The time is now for the manifestation of your prayers. There will be no more delay in what I have spoken. Ezekiel 12:28.”
Given to Sheryl Simpers by the Lord noon prayer 5-24-23:
I was in the presence of Jesus. He said, “Trust in Me. Don’t trust in what is happening around you. Trust in what I have told you and in what I have promised you. Don’t give in or bow down to what is happening that the enemy is doing. Use your authority with the powerful anointing of My Word, My Name, and My blood. Stand strong as My children created in Our image to do good works and to manifest Our Kingdom in the earth. You are not hopeless or helpless. You are far more powerful than you know or yet have understanding of. I am opening your eyes of understanding to My power in you and for you. If I AM for you, who can be against you? Romans 8:31. Enter into who you are as born again children of God. You have been given everything you need to shut down what the enemy is doing. Rise up! Rise up! This is the time to rise up as God’s children created in Our image. Don’t let your circumstances determine what you say. Let what you say determine your circumstances. Death and Life are in the power of the tongue and he who loves it will bear the fruit of what he is speaking. Proverbs 18:21. Stop agreeing with the enemy of what he is saying and doing. Agree with Me! Say what I say! Say it in faith! Say what I say in power! My Words are Spirit and they are Life. John 6:63. You will see the manifestation of what I say when you agree and say what I say. This is My Beloved Children’s finest hour with Me!”
