Together We Stand, But Divided We Fall ~ By Roger Taylor

Together we can be powerful, successful carriers of the love of God to the lost, bringing
miraculous Kingdom of God experience that transforms the heart of man. But divided we fail.
Just think about division for a minute. If that is not one of satan’s tools, what is it? Divide and
conquer usually works. Now think about the attitudes that come with division. Us vs. them,
we are right, they are wrong, judgmental and critical attitudes toward those different than
you, fear of those different than you, pride and arrogance in your position, argumentative
attitude to correct people who believe differently than you, anger and competitive spirit
against other divisions. You continue the list if you will, then stop and look at what we have.
Do any of these attributes or attitudes properly reflect God and His Kingdom, or do they
reflect the devil and his kingdom! The […]

“2021: A Year to Trim the Wick” ~ Ryan Johnson, Sevierville, TN

I believe we can all agree that 2020 was one for the record books. Many people are exhausted, frustrated, overwhelmed, and simply confused with all the chaos that surrounded this unique year. Going into 2020 many people had high expectations, and if we are honest with ourselves, no one recognized the magnitude of the challenges that we would endure. From social distancing, lockdowns, washing our hands, face masks, virtual meetings, virtual school, loss of employment, no indoor dining, no holiday gatherings, no parties, no hospital visitations, no funeral services, and sadly… having to say goodbye to the ones who crossed over into eternity.

Without a doubt, it was a very troubling year. However, the year wasn’t a complete waste. Babies were born, families were reunited, marriages took place, homes were sold and bought, students graduated high school and college, people […]

God is Truth and Every Man a Liar ~ Roger Taylor

Everything God has spoken is reality. It is a done deal. Therefore, anything we say, believe or
teach that in any way denies or distorts the truth that God has spoken is deception by flesh or
the devil and the consequence of that sin is self-defeating and a great hindrance to bringing
the Kingdom of God to a lost and dying world.
Denying, distorting, explaining away fleshly reasoning apart from Holy Spirit influence are the
tools used to divide the Body of Christ, the family of God!
This manmade process has resulted in an anemic representation of the Kingdom of God. Each
division of the Body thinks their beliefs are correct and every other division is wrong. Each
division is comfortable and confident right where they are. In other words, they have become
complacent. There is little to no hunger for more of God. When hunger for more […]

More Kingdom Characteristics ~ by Gerri

Here are a few more characteristics of the Kingdom here on earth as it is in Heaven. We need to be asking ourselves often how we are doing when it comes to walking in these characteristics. The fruitfulness of them will indicate to us how well we are walking in Father’s Kingdom.

Loving– Giving away the Father’s love to everyone we meet.
Honorable—We show honor to everyone.
Humble —We don’t draw attention to ourselves.
Selfless—We think of others more than we think of ourselves.
Pure—We strive to have untarnished motives.
Peace-loving—We agree to respectfully disagree.
Gentle—We consider the feelings of others before acting.
Merciful—We give second chances because they’ve been given to us.
Impartial—We show fairness to all we encounter.
Sincere—We are authentic, honest, and full of integrity.
Loving– Giving away the Father’s love to everyone we meet.

Eyes on the Kingdom Here on Earth ~ by Gerri

Every where I look these past few days we are being admonished to keep our eyes on the Kingdom of God here on earth as it is in Heaven rather than all the worldly chaos going on all around us.
The Kingdom of God here on earth as it is in Heaven looks like this:
Father’s love is unconditional. He never leaves or forsake us. He is always ever-present. He is always faithful even when we are not. He is the only true King in His Kingdom.
In His Kingdom I must make choices:
I must choose God. I choose faith in Him. I choose righteousness and holiness. I choose love, not hate. I choose honesty and integrity. I choose giving and not taking. I choose the positive and not the negative. I choose light over […]

Treason is Rebellion on Steroids ~ Roger Taylor, The Evidence Is In, Vol II

I never thought I’d live to see the day that treason became acceptable in the USA! Sadly, that
day has arrived and we as a nation have lost our identity! American citizens are no longer
required to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. Those who
openly reject our established way of life, our democratic republic and capitalism in particular
are allowed to run for and hold public office. They even run for President. It is obvious that
these socialists, Marxists, communists, Nazis, and other perverse, destructive characters are
becoming more and more popular in our nation since they are being mainstreamed and
elected to public office.
When treason becomes acceptable, self-destruction is inevitable. God established America on
a solid, Godly foundation and He protected, blessed and prospered us to become the most
powerful and most wealthy nation on the planet! Our thanks to Him? […]

The Lonely Path to the Summit – unknown

“The Lonely Path to the Summit”

Paul summarizes all that he is facing in two phrases—he is “carrying in the body the death of Jesus,” but not without purpose, for it is “so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.” Following a suffering and rejected Savior in a fallen world will involve suffering—both because the world is fallen and because the world rejects its King. But when we suffer and choose to trust Christ through the trials we face, we are filled with His power and presence, reflecting His image to those around us.

My Angel Story by Roger

This is ~ Chapter 8 ~ from Our Glory Stories.

MY ANGEL STORY  By Roger

“Destruction may seem imminent but My power to save is omnipresent.” Father

The state of Alabama has two major rivers that run from north to south. The one on the west side of the state is the Tombigbee River, and the one on the east side is the Alabama River. These two large rivers merge just a few miles north of Mobile, Alabama, to form one huge river that flows into Mobile Bay and then the Gulf of Mexico. The oil field where I worked as a pumper is located about 60 miles upstream from the Gulf in the “v” that is formed by these two rivers converging together. Work crews were transported to the field in the summer months by […]

MEASURING GOD by Roger Taylor

How do we measure, judge and evaluate God?  What is our foundation when we critique God?  By what authority do we judge and evaluate Him?  How do we measure His character?  How quickly do we forget that He is God and we’re not?  We are one dimensional, we live in today!  He’s not bound by dimensions.  Some of us are concerned about tomorrow because we don’t know what’s coming!  He’s already been there!  Some of us cannot get free of the pain of past trauma! He’s been there too and made healing available to all who will come on His terms!
We ask Him for something and we expect Him to do it in a certain way and even in a certain time frame according to our need.  That’s just common sense!  But there He goes again…off on His own […]

A WAY WE HAVE NEVER BEEN BEFORE – By Ron McGatlin

God is taking us a way we have not been before to a place we have never been, to do things we have not done before, in a new and greater way.

From the passing church age of worldwide growth and development, we have matured into a new era.

God has not changed. However, mankind has changed and is changing to become more aligned with where God has always been. As we the people of God change, our relationship and interactions with God are changing.

There are two major aspects that are helpful to us in understanding God’s work of change on earth. One is the personal individual change of our own life, and the other is the change of the collective universal Body of Christ […]

God’s Will in Uncertainty ~ by Dr. Charles Stanley

It’s safe to say that the questions I’m most frequently asked as a pastor involve the issue of God’s will. People often ask, “How do I know what the Lord wants me to do with my life?” Or, “When I have two options, how can I know which way the Father wants me to go?” I’ve also found that never are believers more concerned about God’s will than during times of waiting—when we desperately want to know what He’s up to and whether He’ll answer our prayers.

King David was able to endure through all his adversity because he understood that it was the Lord’s plan for him to be king of Israel (1 Sam.16:1-13). And Abraham was able to be patient because the Father had promised he’d have many descendants and become a great nation (Gen. 12:2). Though I’m […]

Religion or Relationship by Roger Taylor

Religion has built in deterrents, then because of the deterrents our avoidance alarm goes off!  Because religion is typically focused on behavior we seldom get to the relationship part.  We talk about it but usually the emphasis is think right, do right and be right or you can’t earn the relationship part.  The other motivational tactic in religion is stressing the fear of God!  For too many this promotes the angry, critical, judgmental God that you have to look out for!  Then we are told that we must love this God, but human nature tells us strongly to run from this God!  Is it any wonder why the world around the religious wants to avoid getting involved?  Something else I’d like to mention is performance; all the ‘doing’ that is expected to earn your place in Heaven or just […]

WHAT AM I THINKING? By Roger Taylor

When this title popped into my head, I quickly remembered an experience I had a many years back.  Gerri and I were visiting with my aunt and uncle in Mississippi.  We went with them to their Wednesday night church service.  Their pastor asked the group a question that went something like this:  “How would you feel if the Lord took your thoughts and wrote them on this wall right now?”  I thought, “Wow!  I like this guy!”  I also knew that there were times that I wouldn’t like my thoughts on that wall in front of others.  In those days, I didn’t yet realize how important it can be to critically consider what I think and why I think it!  Have you ever stopped to consider the same?  You may ask, “Why should I?  What’s the point?”  Everybody has […]

The Wise, The Foolish, The Evil ~ Dr. Henry Cloud

THE WISE
When truth presents itself, the wise
person sees the light, takes it in, and
makes adjustments.
 When you give them feedback, they
listen, take it in, and adjust their behavior
accordingly.
 When you give them feedback, they
embrace it positively. They say things
like, “Thank you for telling me that. It
helps me to know the way I come across.”
Or, “Thanks for caring enough to bring
this to my attention.”
 They own their performance, problems
and issues and take responsibility for
them without excuses or blame.
 Your relationship is strengthened as a
result of giving them feedback. They
thank you for it, and see you as someone
who cares enough about them to have a
hard conversation.
 They empathize and express concern
about the results of their behavior on
others. If you tell them that something
they are doing hurts you, you get a
response that shows that it matters to
them.
 They show repentance. You get […]

“Three Different Piles of Seeds God Is Sifting in Your Life!” Anthony Medina

Recently one morning, I was seeing a picture of someone sitting at a table. The person was sorting out seeds into three different piles. When I asked the Lord what it was that I was seeing, He said, “I am sorting people out right now. These seeds are people and relationships in the life of the Believer.”

Covenant, Contractual and Convict

He said that the three different piles of seeds are the three different types of people in our lives right now which are: covenant, contractual and convict. (When I asked what convict meant He said that those were people that were close only to steal.)

  1. The covenant seeds are those people who you can trust your heart to and go into battle with. These people are good seeds; they can be trusted. They not only yield good fruit, but they also help you grow good […]

Prophetic Insights – Covid 19 – Passover and Pentecost ~ by Jerry and Denise Basel

Prophetic Insights Regarding Pentecost;
Relevance of the Hebrides Revival
Jerry and Denise Basel
May 9, 2020

“Reset” and the Comparison of the Recent Passover to the Upcoming Pentecost

Many things have been shared prophetically concerning the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact
on our country and the world. Because of the need for people to shelter-in-place, it has
provided Christ-followers the opportunity to pause and pray. To pray, of course, for this plague
to stop, healing for those afflicted and comfort to those who have lost loved ones from this
virus; but to also pray for discernment from the Lord as to what He is doing in the midst of this
very unusual season. We don’t believe that it was the Lord’s will to cause this virus to afflict
and kill people, but we know that He uses all things for His purposes and our ultimate good
(Rom. 8:28), if we discern […]

IS IDOLATRY SIN? – by Roger Taylor

For most born again believers, this would be a stupid question, right?  But then what if I asked the question, ‘what is idolatry?’  What would your response be?  Would you struggle with your answer or would it be cut and dried? Do you have this one down pat?  Do you feel not guilty here because you don’t have physical idols of Buddha, or Baal, or a Sun god of some type in your home?  Because of recent revelation from Holy Spirit revealing idolatry in my own life, I caution you not to disregard this subject!  This sin may not be as evident as you think!

What to do? What to do? by Gerri

Amid the Coronavirus pandemic, many are asking what to do?

Don’t panic, walk in a spirit of fear, or horde supplies.  That goes against the grain in the way the world and most of the church is acting.  God didn’t give us spirit of fear, but of love, power and a sound mind.  That is His promise to us.  For many years now, Roger and I have been sharing with our audience that Father was directing us all to have an up close, intimate, conversational relationship with our Father.  Can you see now that He has been preparing us for a very long time how to cope with our current situation worldwide?

If you are one who has developed this close, personal relationship with Father, then good for you.  You won’t have any difficulty sheltering in place and obeying what our […]

Show Me Your Friends & I’ll Show You Your Future ~ Kris Vallotton

“Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.”

I love this quote from Chaplain Ronnie Melancon… it’s quite sobering, don’t you think?

As a Believer, I think everyone deserves to be loved and cared for (Matthew 5:45-48).

Yet, I’d like to propose that there’s a fine line between loving everyone (as we should), and surrounding yourself with idiots!

Have you ever looked around at your community and felt like you don’t quite fit in, or that you’re not inspired by the lives of those who are closest to you?

Let me ask you this: If your inner circle of influence is so important, then why is it so hard to let go of the fools in our lives? I think the answer to that is often three-fold:

  1. We don’t know how to set boundaries with people, so we ultimately become the […]

What’s The Solution? ~ by Roger Taylor

For many decades there has been an international problem that many of our Presidents and other world leaders have tried to resolve.  The failure is about 100%!  That is because they consistently try to resolve a spiritual problem with physical answers.  The Israeli/Palestinian problem is an ancient one dating back to the time of Joshua!  Israel’s failure to complete God’s command in taking possession of the Promised Land has resulted in the spiritual dilemma we see today.  The warfare that should have ended Millennia ago continues because of disobedience to God’s instruction.  We cannot fight a spiritual problem in the flesh and win!  The spiritual roots must be discovered and with God’s intervention and provision victory can be had.

Just in case you didn’t know, the Palestinians have publicly declared that they can trace their ancestry back to the Canaanites.  […]

Conglomeration by Roger Taylor

All emotional strongholds contribute thoughts, attitudes and actions into our life experience.  What are our emotional and spiritual strongholds?  How many do we have?  They can be things like:

  • Rejection
  • Abandonment
  • Fear
  • Lust
  • Anger
  • Shame
  • Guilt
  • Self-hatred
  • Illegitimacy

Whatever emotional stronghold we have can contribute to confusion and every evil work in our daily experience.  This at times can equal torment and obviously indicates a lack of peace.  Take for example a phone call from Aunt Susie.  While you are talking to her, someone else comes on the line and begins talking about a different subject; then someone else comes on the line and begins talking about yet another subject.  How do you handle the call?  Can it produce confusion, frustration, anger, etc.?  What can you do?  Hang up?  But it continues to happen.  How does the situation affect your […]

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 training…
a place of refuge being established right now – […]

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 of the age.  But beloved, I want you to […]

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 the response they seek, but how little impact it […]
