CELEBRATING 40 YEARS

Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of God’s Vision

February 20, 1980 to February 10, 2020

The number 40 to the Jewish people is a number that, when used in terms of time,
represents a period of probation, trial and chastisement (not to be confused with judgment).
As the product of 5 and 8, it also signifies grace (5) and ending in revival or a new beginning (8).

WIT’S END RANCH

A PLACE IN FATHER’S HEART

THE VISION

The Vision is going to be key in these last days.
It is a place where the sound of the Spirit is released…
a place of signs, wonders and healing…
a place of intentional outreach, discipleship and […]

Compassion or Codependency ~ by Linda Burton

Note: Linda is a PITFH Prayer Team Partner.  Father’s new name for Linda is “Narnie”

As I come to the topic of compassion, there are many things that stir my heart.  There is looking at what Jesus did while He walked this earth.  There are so many scriptures that say He had compassion and healed.  So what does it mean to have compassion?  How is compassion different from codependency?  Can I have healthy compassion that glorifies God when I have walked in codependent relationships in the past?

This evening as I spent quiet time with God, He said to me, “My beloved Narnie, today your eyes have been opened to the things that make the news.  They are dramatic things that affect many people.  These are yes – signs of the end […]

The Power of Conversation ~ by Wayne Jacobsen

February 2020

I used to love lecturing, putting together a finely-crafted talk with illustrations and Biblical insights that seemed to touch people deeply. I enjoyed the cadence of a good speech, the flows of laughter and depth of emotions the perfect illustration could elicit. How much I loved being the guy on the stage!

But somewhere, I lost my confidence in the power of a lecture. Don’t get me wrong, some useful information can be shared that way, but as a steady diet, it alone lacks the power to help people make the personal discoveries that will help them grow their relationship with God. Thus, I’m less engaged by a talking head than I used to be. I see through so much of it now, the formula that may get the speaker […]

It’s Time For Love – by Ron McGatlin

Father God desires that you and I and all mankind experience the fullness of His total love. The fullness of life exists in and from the love of God. The beauty of all creation speaks of the love of God. All life illustrates the unending love of the Father of all life. Only by the experience of His love does life on earth and in heaven exist in order and peace.

Peace is in the presence and order of God’s love. Joy is the highest expression of the experience of love.

Christ Jesus is the anointed Son of Love. He is the expression of God’s love, the ultimate sacrifice of love resurrected as loving King and Lord of all to rule and reign with love that contains all truth and justice to […]

Mesmerizing Confusion – by Roger

True addicts are compulsive, aren’t they?  It doesn’t matter what they are addicted to, they are compulsive.  Common sense, reason, judgment, healthy analysis seems to evaporate as the addiction takes over!  The victims of addiction don’t seem to recognize their downward slide until it is too late and they give in to the demands of their bondage.  In addition, addicts usually become liars, cheats and thieves in order to protect, hide and/or supply their addiction.  Many times they use and abuse other people in their attempt to satisfy their compulsion.  This behavior typically has disastrous, negative consequences on relationships, quality of life and future employment, not to mention the destruction it brings to society as a whole.

In similar fashion there are many Americans who have become addicts, if you will, […]

Fair Trade – by Roger

You know if you have a disgruntled person in a group, that person can adversely affect the other people in the group.  Something must be done for the overall health of the group.  To do nothing is self-destructive.  If the person refuses to make necessary changes, they should be removed.

This is true on a national scale as well.  Every country must deal with disgruntled citizens.  In some cases, when you have a totalitarian, dominating and abusive government, the people of that nation have a right to be upset and want change.  Many of them want out of their homeland.  Many of them want to come to America.  They long for the freedoms we have here.

Now surprisingly to some we have American citizens who are unhappy with our form of government.  […]

The Routine of Religion

A closed vessel can never contain anything larger than its own size, but an open vessel has no limitations.

Which is larger, that which you know or that which you do not know?  Yes, that which you do not know, so then it is only wise to seek that which you do not know!  Here is a good example.  In denominations the student learns about that particular denomination, its leadership, its principles, its beliefs and so on.  Once the student learns all the teachings of that denomination, they usually settle down in what they know and thus become a closed vessel.  Nothing more flows in or flows out.  The student becomes like the Dead Sea.  Remember, a closed vessel can never contain anything larger than its own size.

Only by opening yourself […]

When Crisis Comes by Gerri

In every life some times of crisis WILL come.  You can take it to the bank.  Everyone, young or old, will come upon days of crisis…a time of intense difficulty, trouble, or danger…a time of catastrophe, calamity, emergency or disaster.  For me, my 74 years have allowed me to experience all of the above.  Each time there has been something that Father God wanted me to learn or to stretch me in my faith to trust Him.  We have God’s promises that it won’t rain always.

I remember well the time that I was within hours of death when I suffered from very serious pancreatitis.  After 30 days in the hospital and surgery to remove my gall bladder, I began the process of mending physically learning deeply of His ability to […]

New eBook Release

We are pleased to announce the release of Roger’s new eBook “The Evidence Is In, Volume II.”  All of our eBooks are available to download free of charge from our website.

Here is Evidence #2:

THE EVIDENCE IS IN: Victimization diminishes a person’s potential and quality in life.

Have you ever stopped to think about how many different ways a person can be victimized?  I’m especially thinking about wounding events.  Contrary to popular belief, which is secular, wounding or victimization doesn’t just go away.  The ignorant and simple minded will say things like, “time will heal it, just get over it, buck up, be strong, put it behind you; it’s time to forget it and get on with your life, or think about something else.”  REALLY!

One of the negative impacts of victimization that […]
