Mission Trip to Germany – Part 2

12 Oct

Good Morning and God’s Blessings to you all,

We have been back in the U.S. now for a few weeks and I would like to share with you some impressions concerning this visit that I believe the Lord has/is giving me concerning our stay in Germany. In some respects this is an overall view of what it is that the Lord has so graciously given me to understand His thoughts and desires for the people of this land. As I have had this time to reflect back on our time there, I believe that I can say that it was indeed a very blessed time for us personally, as well as profitable for the sake of the Kingdom of God. I believe that I mentioned in the last report that there is a very strong sense in the Spirit, as well as evidence in the natural, that God is indeed moving in this land called Germany. Moreover, He is moving to restore the foundation of this Word of Sonship that was delivered there some eighteen plus years ago. It is a platform from which this ongoing revelation of God’s plan for the salvation of humanity can be ministered to the people who have hungry hearts and who have a desire to know the truth[1]. There may not be many, but the few that are there will in many respects be a part of that remnant of our God/Jehovah-Nissi[2]‘s overcoming people. This remnant can play a part in the deliverance of humanity in their locality and possibly on a global basis and be a well of salvation even as those that were a part of Gideon’s company were instrumental in the deliverance of Israel from the hand of the Midianites.

Perhaps it would be necessary for me to share with you some of the history concerning the fellowship of this word of Sonship and its interaction with Germany. It was probably 17 to 18 years ago that the Lord moved upon a small contingent of people, which included Brother duCille, to go to Germany and share the burden of the word with this people. It was by His grace that I was allowed to be a part of that contingent of people who came at that time to establish a beachhead for the Kingdom of God, not only for Germany, but also for the land of Switzerland. It was very much like the explorers of old as they would go out to explore the New World, for as they would put their foot upon the soil of that place, they would plant the flag of their king, in our case Jehovah-Nissi, and proclaim that land for our King, Jehovah-Nissi, as being a part of His Kingdom. It may seem a bit presumptuous to say, but it is nevertheless true! As it was with Abram  so it is of us who are of the seed of Abraham;[3] Genesis 13:17, “Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee… and unto thy seed forever.”

I have often wondered and inquired of God as to the reason that He would take somebody that is a nobody, sustain them in their living as well as the life that is in their bodies; continually put them/me into situations and circumstances concerning the establishment and the growth and development of that Son/Manchild church on a global scale. Experiences that were so totally beyond the scope of their/my understanding and their/my ability “to…….. comprehend ……… (the) breadth, and length, and depth, and height[4];” of this message concerning the plans and purposes of EL-Shaddai[5] as it pertains to His desires and intent. I have come to the conclusion that He has sustained me so that I might be a witness[6] (there are but a few of us left), concerning the global aspect of it, of those things that have happened and that I/we might testify to the reality of them as they pertain to us now! That you might comprehend the magnitude of what ”ĕlôhı̂ym-el-o-heem’ /THE EL SHADDAI means in this time frame as it concerns the message of Sonship and those who would desire to have it, at this time, Germany in particular.

It is our Elôhı̂ym/El-Elyon[7] who is working to establish oases of living water in the souls of individuals that those that are around them might be able to partake of that water. In the natural, oases are places of refuge in a very hot, dry, and hostile environment – an environment that wants to drain you of your life and energy and in the end of the day kill you. Oases in that context, when seen from afar off, create within the individual the feeling of hope and give the victim that is caught in that set of circumstances the sense of hope and an expectancy of relief that they will live and not perish. To one who sees it in this context it brings a sense of gladness as the sense of being liberated from the horrible death of dehydration brings an expected hope that sustains them and strengthens them to make for the water that they may drink of it.

As it is true in the natural so it is also true in the spirit, both for good as well as the bad. Speaking of the bad, during our time in Germany this past month, it has been impressed upon me the reality of the spiritual condition of this land and the dehydration of the people who dwell there. Because there is a populace that is on the verge of spiritual extinction, God has purposed to intervene and circumvent the plan of the devil. Perhaps you do not believe that such a scenario of spiritual extinction could be possible in these modern times and in a civilized society, especially when we have so many denominations that purport Christianity; they are but mirages that delude and deceive and eventually kill the soul, as the natural mirages kill the body. If that case scenario of extinction is true, Elohim would and could mobilize but a few to stop it. I would like to remind you of the story that is in John the 4th chapter beginning at the 3rd verse. It is a story that we all know, so I will not relay the whole of it, but Jesus had an appointment that was arranged by His Father God. It is the story of Jesus and the woman at the well. There are a few spiritual facts that I want to point out in this story that are pertinent with Germany.

We need to first look at the context of the story with the understanding that Jesus is representing The Word[8] and the woman is representing the church. It was a discussion that had religion as its subject concerning Jews and Samaritans as to their right to worship and where they should worship. We all know how the Jews felt about the Samaritans as they were the progenitors of Jacob and had the right of patriarchal worship, [9] as well as to the where that they should worship. So the Lord Jesus was addressing the religious deception that was prevailing over all of Israel/Christianity at that time, and from that time hence. But I want to stick with the thought as to how this story in some way relates to what it was the Lord was showing me about Germany and the moving of God in that arena. I use this illustration because it is quite apropos to the situation, not only in Germany, but globally.

One of the significant points of the story is in the opening lines. In verse three it states “He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.” Let us look deeper into the revelation that is found in that seemingly simple statement. Judaea is indicative of the Sonship Company[10]. It is speaking of a positional place of authority and being under the jurisdiction of the Father – in other words, the duty and responsibility that is given to the Sonship Company of people to do a particular thing.

The next thing that I would like us to look at a bit more closely is where it was He was going, “and departed again into Galilee.” There are two words in this very short sentence that are important. The first of which is the word again. When it uses the word again it means that there was a time or times previously when He was in that region of the country before and I believe that it is talking about a visitation that is yet to come in the not too distant future. There have been many visitations to the church at-large. Many times God has poured out His Spirit as was needed to revive and to strengthen the remnant that was still alive. But here it seems that this natural event with Jesus had prophetic overtones for a time that was yet to come, when the people of God would find themselves in a similar situation that had the same religious malady of deception that the society of God’s people at that time were having. It is yet prophetic as to the coming of yet another revival where the cloud of that deception will be removed. As to the story of the woman and the well, it meant that there was some unfinished business that needed/needs to be taken care of. As was the situation for Jesus pertaining to the business of the Father concerning Galilee, so is it true with that segment of the world that is called Germany.  As there was/is a work that started in Germany so many years ago, not in the sense of any kind of concrete substance of a church or fellowship per se, for the devil and his black knight prince made sure that any visual remnants of it were totally and completely obliterated. However it was as the grain of a mustard seed that was planted in the earth and it cannot and shall not be removed. As it was the mantle passed from Moses unto Joshua/Yeshua [11], so was that mantle passed from Yeshua unto us/message of Sonship[12], as far as Germany is concerned. It is unto this seed that Elôhı̂ym/El-Roi[13] is now preparing to send the Water of His Word.

Now as to this particular thing or task it is given in verse four, “And he must needs go through Samaria.” The word “needs go through” and the order in which it is expressed in this passage of scripture is expressed with an emphatic nature that states a designated purpose for a designated reason as to a designated place. The dictionary defines the word emphatic as that which must be done from a sense of duty. I believe that it is necessary for me to pause here and insert a thought that is coming to me. I first must apologize for using the pronoun I or me. I am not applying it as to an individual entity or person as I am applying it to a corporate movement of God in the sense of those who carry and deliver a message to be given at a particular place in a particular time. It is the message that is important and not the messenger. That being said I want to state that Jesus had an appointment that was made for Him by the Father, to share a word of deliverance and hope to a woman who had no spiritual significance and whose living condition was that of an adulterer. It is much like today’s denominational system with its pastoral position of dominance that requires the allegiance of its congregation as a husband would require the submission of a wife. In the sight of God it robs Him, the Elôhı̂ym, of their love and adoration. So also I believe that God is moving in Germany and is sending the water of His word of hope, deliverance and salvation to water that seed which was planted, that the life that is in the seed might indeed germinate and have the opportunity to come to fruition and harvest.

I’d like to include here a dream Brother Guido Lemke shared that he had about twenty years ago: In the dream I received two closed envelopes from above. I asked, “What do they contain?” and the bigger one opened and out came a piece of paper with the word “believe” on it and the smaller one opened and showed “patience” (in German: Glaube & Geduld). A voice told me that I would be in need of the two. I started to study the word and found the promise of the latter rain in several scriptures.

Perhaps you would ask if a few people can indeed make a difference, or for that matter turn things around? Well, there are two very good classic examples of what God can do with willing hearts. One of them is this story as there were only two people to begin with: Jesus the Messenger and the woman as the listener. It brought a revival to the whole town. The other scriptural example is that of Gideon and his three hundred souls that defeated an army of many thousands and brought deliverance to the entire nation of Israel. So the answer to that thought is an emphatic yes!

We were by the grace of God able to spend about six days of fellowship with Brother and Sister Lemke. They are a family who live in Berlin that has recently come into the fellowship of this word. It was a very blessed time for Nancy and me. It was also a blessing to have Brother Tomas as well as his wife Sister Magda to visit with all of us over the weekend that we were there. I am always very blessed to see individuals, as well as couples, interrupt their various, very busy schedules to make the effort, in spite of the hardships that it may create, to follow the will of God and to join in the effort to facilitate the move of God. Many were the discussions concerning our experiences collectively as well as the unveiling of the mysteries of God’s Word in a more relaxed type of environment of fellowship and comradery.

Here again I would like to share with you something that the Lemkes have shared with me. They testified that they experienced the moving of the Lord during this time of fellowship in an increase of hearing what God is speaking (through dreams, visions, words, pictures, testimonies, etc.) and an increase in encouragement to open up to His will and to accomplish whatever He is asking for. We felt a great liberty to put ANY question / impression / thought concerning His word / will and personal experiences on the table that we shared with the two of you as well as with Tomas and Magdalena. There was a freedom to grow to any extent the Almighty would allow (Romans 8:21).

I certainly cannot speak for all of those who participated in this effort, both in Germany as well as abroad, both those who physically were present as well as those who were in prayer and intercession for this particular trip, but what I can say, without a shadow of doubt, is that for Nancy and myself it was extremely encouraging as well as it was very, very profitable. I am looking forward with expectation to the coming conference that is to be held there this coming mid-October.

Because He is, we are your Brother and Sister in Christ,
