I believe that we are on the verge of the greatest move of God in history! God is going to give us double for our trouble! Double portion, double honor, double favor! But many of you have experienced so many trials and challenges you have come into a position where it seems like it will never happen.
It’s time for the Restoration of All Things
Two years ago at Christmas time I heard the spirit of the Lord speak to me, “Tell the people, I am going to make their dreams come true!” This is the time that God is going to restore everything that was lost, broken and forgotten. It’s always darkest before the dawn! It’s time for the restoration of all things and for the great harvest of souls to come into God’s kingdom before the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ!
As I was researching about the number 14, I found some very interesting things! The number fourteen is a multiple of 7 x 2. The number seven means spiritual perfection or completion. And so the #14 implies a double measure of spiritual perfection.
There are 3 sets of 14 generations between Abraham and Joseph (husband of Mary). So all the generations from Abraham to David are 14 generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon is 14 generations, and from the captivity until Jesus Christ are 14 generations.
The #14 represents deliverance and salvation and is used 22 times in the bible. The 14th day of the month is the Passover when God delivered the firstborn of Israel from death. On the 14th day of the first month in 30 AD, Jesus was crucified as the perfect sacrifice to save mankind from sin. Jesus death on Passover completed His ministry on this earth to free the world from sin.
I woke up on Labor Day of 2013 and heard the Lord speak to me, “It’s time for the earth to give birth.” I knew that God was speaking to me about a great harvest which was going to come forth! I believe that we are now at the door for this movement to come into fruition.
In 1996 I formed a foundation called “Youthwave Explosion” under the guidance of the Lord. God spoke to me and said there was a greater move of God coming Lonnie Frisbee than in the Jesus Movement. In the late sixties the Lord touched a Hippie named Lonnie Frisbee with the power of the Holy Spirit. Through a series of divine coincidences God brought Pastor Chuck Smith and Lonnie Frisbee together. It erupted into a movement and the rest is history. Thousands of people came to the Lord and Calvary Chapel (Chuck Smith’s small church) exploded on the scene where thousands of hippies found redemption through Christ!
The Changing of the Guard is At Hand
The changing of the guard is at hand. Many church fathers have recently gone home to heaven including Pastor Chuck Smith (October 3, 2013) and Paul Crouch who started Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) on November 30, 2013. Evangelist Billy Graham is very frail and also on the verge of being taken home to heaven.Calvary Chapel
In Malachi 4: 4-5 the Bible states: “Behold I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.. And he will turn the hearts of the Fathers to the children and the heart of the children to their Father’s, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”
The Lord is bringing forth another movement – only this will be a movement of the Father. The Lord said He was going to send the spirit of Elijah before the coming of Jesus. The spirit of Elijah is a double portion anointing!
In II Kings 2 Elijah is ready to be taken up into heaven. Elisha had been serving Elijah and by the spirit knew that it was time for his departure. He asked for a double portion of the spirit that was on Elijah as seen in II Kings 2: 9 – 14:
9 And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.
10 And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.
11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.
13 He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan;
14 And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, Where is the Lord God of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.
Do you notice that Elisha cries out in verse 12: “My Father, My Father”. Elisha did receive a double portion of the spirit of Elijah and in his ministry did twice the works of his spiritual father, Elijah.
Let Go of the Past, to Receive the New Thing
2014 is going to be a year of the double portion. The Lord is sending forth the spirit of Elijah and is going to be restoring families, finances and futures. But Elisha had to tear his own clothes in two before he picked up the mantle of Elijah. You have to let go of the past and what has not worked up until now to receive the new thing.
We have never walked this way where we are going. The Father God in heaven is going to be bringing forth the “Greatest Show on Earth.” It will look very different than any other movement in history. But it will turn father’s hearts back to their children and will restore the lost. This will be the last move before the coming of Jesus Christ to this earth. It’s time for the earth to give birth! It’s time for the double portion anointing! It’s time for the harvest of God’s sons and daughters! Get ready….on your mark, get set…..GO!
Comments on “2014 – A Year of the Double Portion”
Powerfully stated. I receive this double for my trouble in this glorious year of the Lord.Thank you so much for this word. its a blessing me. God bless you.
Below my testimony, are 4 dreams. I have dreams, most I don’t remember, and the ones that I do remember are usually stupid.
But these 4 were as if I were really there…I would love to know what you think they mean.
Blessings to you
I came from a violent home, (drugs, alcohol, gun shots, being chased with knives, people thrown through picture pane windows), in fact I was born three months early because my father kicked my mother in the stomach, I was born weighing two pounds nine ounces, this was DEC of 1956.
As early as 7yrs old, I was out on the streets till 3-4am, I was put in three orphanages… One night I remember, my father snuck into our house, he put a loaded pistol in my hand and told me too shoot my sisters and my mother, it was crazy. Through all of this, (which I wouldn’t change), I came out a fairly normal kid, I was involved in sports and didn’t do drugs, or drink. I thought I was a survivor, wanting only too make it through another day.
At age 16 (in 1974) I started too sense a need in my life, an emptiness that I couldn’t explain. I knew I had to find God/Jesus, but who was HE? I had no idea where to find HIM, so I went to the local library to find books concerning world religions, God, and the occult. At the library I met an ex hippie (Gary Osborn) he saw my books and decided to share the message with me. Gary invited me to pray in the back of his V.W. so I did, I remember saying “God forgive me for my sins, and whatever you have for me I want it all”.
Well at first nothing happened I expected, lightening or something. Gary said, “Just go home and praise God” I said, “What’s that, mean” Gary said, “Just thank him” So I did just that.
The remaining is sacred to me, before I asked Jesus into my heart, I never heard voices, I never drank, and I never did drugs, but one week after meeting Jesus while in the middle of my last class (during high school) A voice, just as clear, as someone standing next to you, spoke, and as the voice spoke it said to me, “rod tell them about Jesus” I was surprised, but unafraid, I put my hand over my mouth, since I didn’t want anyone to think I was talking too myself, I said (to whoever spoke to me) “I don’t know what to say” the voice said “don’t be afraid, I’ll give you the words to say” To this day I don’t remember my words, but I spoke to those kids about Jesus and salvation, their mouths just dropped open and then, class was over, I walked out of that room, feeling like I had never felt before.
The next day was Saturday; I slept in the living room on an old couch. When I woke it was early and I decided to turn on the TV, to watch my favorite cartoon, the roadrunner.
As I sat there watching the TV, I got up and looked outside, everything was so beautiful, (I never appreciated nature, I just wanted to make it thru another day). BUT now it was so pretty, I sat back down on the couch, and as I did I was somewhere else.
I was sitting at a long rough hewn table, to my right was God, the father, I couldn’t see him, to my left was Satan, him I could see (he looked like a man only very big) then in front of me was Jesus, three bowls appear, filled with what looked like porridge. Now the father spoke and said Satan dismiss yourself, Satan stood and screamed, then vanished. Three bites were taken out of the bowl. Then all at once I was watching myself from a distance, walking with Jesus up a grassy pathway. Jesus was speaking to me but from a distance I couldn’t hear him, I could see myself shaking my head (like I understand) then thru my eyes I saw the house where I had been sleeping.
I didn’t know what had happened; I’d never experienced anything like that, but I knew two things, I had to find a pastor to talk too, and I KNEW GOD loved me and wanted something from me…my total surrender, my life totally under his control, every second, moment by moment, and I was consumed with this one desire, to live too PLEASE HIM. Let me give you an example: When a friend from school would come over and say, “Hey rod.” “Let’s go to a show” I’d say, “hold on.” Then I’d go in the bathroom and pray, “Lord should I go?” Sometimes the Lord would say “go”, sometimes “no” At times He was silent, when this happened I would look inside, to my heart, (Spirit), (see Colossians 3:15) if I had peace I would go, If not, Id stay home.
As I practiced this new desire, (surrender), I noticed the voice of the Lord became more frequent and clearer, (John 10:27). It always had to agree with scripture. The word of the Lord will always agree with the true meaning and / or the true interpretation of scripture).
I knew I needed to get a bible, I went to a bookstore and I got the largest family bible I’d ever seen, with pictures and everything. I was so happy. That night the voice of the lord said, “Read Matthew 5.” I had to look in the contents; I didn’t know where Matthew was. When I found it and started to read, the words became a (“Word of the Lord to me”) they just jumped off the page, they seemed to come alive, and they filled me, with hope, love and peace. Now I knew God loved me, and my sins were gone, I was forgiven…
As time passed I grew, sometimes I’d walk into a busy office or building (like a D.O.L) and the Lord would say go sit by that guy, I would strike up a conversation, then say “you don’t know me but I’m a Christian and God is going to share with me about your life” I don’t mean simple things like “you have the flu” or “Headaches”, but deep, personal things that others couldn’t know or even guess. People would usually start to cry and ask “how did you know?” I’d say “I didn’t but God knew”.
One of the best lessons from the Lord concerning trusting Him happened like this; I was traveling from Philly to Atlantic city, I got on the road, and started to hitch a ride, (it wasn’t illegal at that time) within one hour and twenty minutes I was in Atlantic city (which was a one hour drive!) I got 4 different rides, as I stepped into each vehicle I boldly proclaimed “Hi I’m a child of the King, and God’s going to bless you for picking me up!” God gave me very personal details about each of those people and all but one came to Christ.
When I got to Atlantic City, God said “Rod, when you get to the prayer meeting tonight I want you to give all your money, to Johnnie Diaz”. I said “Lord that’s all I’ve got?” (About 300.00) God replied; “you take care of your brothers and sisters in the Lord and I’ll take care of you.” So upon arriving in Atlantic City, I secretly gave all my money to Johnnie, (this was to cover something for Johnnie that was very personal, so I know he didn’t share this with anyone).
That night I asked myself “how am I going to get back to work, tomorrow? I didn’t have a penny, not even enough for bus fare, and in my spirit I knew I wasn’t to hitch hike, but instead the Lord wanted me on the bus. After sleeping that night and leaving the brothers house the next day, (where the meeting had been held), I started walking to the bus station. As I got closer and closer, I was imagining, “is the drivers going to just “know” he’s suppose to let me ride for free?” But as I approached the depot, a brother named “Chicky” came out of his house and said “rod I think the Lord wants me to give this to you.” It was exactly what I needed for bus fare!
This has been a short summary of my life, oh one more thing. Life didn’t continue this way for me, I ruined that. I don’t live surrendered moment by moment now, or my heart is hidden from me, I’m just not sure. Where does man find the will and desire to live such a life, or is it a gift as is repentance?
Should I confess the most difficult thing in my life with you? After all we are strangers! After living this way for some time and seeing my life change, and having peace beyond comprehension, I disobeyed the lord after he spoke to me. I lived to obey him, it was my passion…I knew a man, he was a believer, and his name was Bob Chorney. Bob was like the father I never had. Bob is dead now, I loved him very much, and we forgave one another.
One day I went to visit Bob, we talked and prayed for a while then Bob said, “rod”, “Paula is gone (Bob’s wife).”Why don’t you go to dinner with me”? Immediately the Lord spoke and said “rod don’t go” I said Bobby I can’t go. He said “oh rod go with me “. I said Bob I can’t. I prayed back to the lord, in my mind saying “Lord it will be alright, you know I don’t drink, I’ll just eat something with Bob” The Lord didn’t reply. So we went. All was well until a brother named Aggie Rodriguez, started to argue with Bob, I couldn’t watch, so I started to leave, as I went outside Bob said “Rod if you’re going to walk you might as well walk all the way back to Washington, and don’t come back” OH the pain. Well the next morning, Bob and Paula showed up, Bob said “rod forgive me I’m so sorry”, the Lord spoke instantly and said “rod forgive him, go too him tell him it’s ok and that you love him”. I said “Lord I can’t. I won’t, it hurts too bad”.
Soon I left for Washington. My life, outside of God’s will, was torture. No peace, no answers, sin in total control.
Jean Nicholas Grou says, “God delights in two things, for a man too know God and too know himself.” I now know what I’m capable of without him, living life for myself, Sinning, being rebellious. I want to recommend a couple books that I discovered a few years ago, the book is “Practicing the presence” BY Lawrence and Labach, there are two versions this one is best and includes Labach’s testimony. “Hinds feet on High places” and “The breaking of the outer man for the release of the spirit” By Watchman Nee are very good also.
Now let me share some thoughts/opinions:
1).How do you describe this LIFE? As a Christian it’s hard to do. As I recall moments in my own life, I think of times of stillness, in the midst of activity or in the quiet of night. The presence of His Spirit was there, sometimes speaking other times He was silent, yet the undeniable presence of His Spirit was so real. You couldn’t describe it too anyone else, sometimes he was so near, almost physical, at other times He was, just felt, deep in your heart.
I could at times think, and He would answer. Sometimes the answer was spoken, and at other times it was a still small voice in my heart.
Sometimes I would see a person, and while looking at them, I knew about them.
I recall the passion to tell others about him at any given moment, looking for such an occasion never caring where I was, or who was nearby.
Constantly His Love moved over me in waves and yet it abode, never departing. I would wake up in the middle of the night and He was there, like a mother hen.
I remember the love for others that was not my own. I remember feeling, and being, separate from the world yet still in its midst.
I recall not worrying about the kind of car I drove, or the condition of my clothes, knowing that He was fully aware of all these things.
I recall being invited out for dinner with brothers, and thinking (silently between myself and God), “Lord I don’t have any money, but I’m hungry” and then someone would say “hey rod I’ll buy ok?” Do you have days like this?
Do you remember days like this from your past? I believe this is something no one can take from us. This is why WE MUST EXPERIENCE GOD! Experiencing God is more important than the scriptures! You see if you experience HIM then, Bible revelation can be added to you. But if you don’t experience HIM first then Bible knowledge is just a compilation of facts, they are true, but they don’t have any place of reference, without HIM.
2).Most of my life, at least as far back as I can remember I’ve had a desire and love for God/Jesus. As I’ve grown older, I’ve seen many things in “Christendom”, I’ve seen communes (come and go in failure). I’ve seen myself and other brothers walk in their own ways (you might call it backsliding), I’ve been hurt by supposed brothers in Christ, I’ve seen TV preachers act cocky, and ridiculous, I’ve seen people chase tithes and money, I’ve seen people in big churches (faithful tithers) go without help while in need, I’ve seen people chase their own kingdom and building programs. I’ve seen people pretend to prophecy, knowing they were not HEARING from HIM, (and in failure, excuse themselves by saying they were practicing), I’ve seen names in lights (but not Jesus name). I’ve seen people destroyed by the shepherding movement. I’ve seen men of god after devoting their lives to “the ministry” destroyed after a single mistake, instead of forgiven. On and on I could go… So does any of the above remind you of the book of acts or the first group of believers?
3).The first century church in the New Testament turned the world upside down in a short time NOT because of their words alone but because of the LIFE residing IN them. This was a spirit thing…NOT a mental thing, it wasn’t an agreement with certain doctrines or creeds, it wasn’t from arguing the scriptures, it wasn’t from forming a new church or denomination, they had and were living LIFE like Jesus 24/7 every moment of each day, a life of submission, pleasing the father, a life defined by others as “seeing they had been with Jesus”.
Here is Dream #1:
I was on the head of a beast, in a large body of water (Like the ocean). It was night and the darkness was so real it could be felt. The clouds above were very thick and black. The beast was thrashing as if it wanted to throw me off. I was so afraid!
I was holding on as tight as I could. Then I looked up, and when I did, the clouds opened and rays of light came through the clouds, with the light came that voice that I had heard before and knew so well.
He said “Rod; if I’m ever to use you, I must break you”!
I woke, wet with sweat, shaking…Saying as I woke, “thank you, Lord you haven’t forgotten me”
Here is Dream #2:
I am in a church; it is a large church, one that in reality I have never seen. This was a dream that was so real; it was as if I were really there.
In the dream I am cleaning the bathroom floor, on my hands and knees, with a small brush. I stand as a priest comes into the room. I start to speak to him, about spiritual things, he listens, and then I leave the restroom and enter the foyer.
I notice the large room is built in a round fashion and that the windows are also large. People are leaving to go outside. As I exit the building, an earthquake hits, I look up and the sky is doing this “warp 9 star trek” kind of thing. I look to my left and I notice a man is in his car, his head is bleeding, he is dead.
Everyone starts to rejoice, saying “yes that is the big one”! I yell “No”. “There is another one coming, and it is much larger”
I start to run for my home, and as I cross a large open area, I reach what looks like a ditch. I jump, but instead of a ditch it a huge open area, a chasm, the ground thousands of feet below! I start to fall so fast, picking up speed as I fall. I yell out “Jesus save me” Something grabs me and lowers me to the ground gently…I start running again.
Here is Dream # 3.
I see a street sign, the name on the sign is Jordan Road. I am walking and then I get picked up by someone in a van. He asks were I’m going and I tell him a few miles ahead.
Then as we reach the destination, I thank him, and look to my right, there is a house in a field. The house is glowing and the light is emanating from the inside of the house, and is visible to me even from a distance.
I know the people within the house are waiting for me, and that I have been somewhere, doing HIS will / work, and that I traveled in a spiritual way, but arrived back in the van.
The love and light from the house are supernatural, the love I feel for them, and the love I perceive from them is not normal love.
Here is Dream # 4:
I am in a large room, with many people, I recognize one or two people, the room is full of people from many different places.
I am standing on a raised platform that is approx 6-8 inches higher than the floor.
Then I know I am suppose to speak the following words; “Holy Spirit come”…
When I speak the words, God’s presence comes very heavy, most fall down, some start to weep and convulse, others are crying for joy.
I truly thank you for sharing this word of encouragement with me. I have been blessed and so are you. Thank you and God bless!
Encouraging word. Thanks Meri! A Meri Ca! America- Ca (California)
