Journal of Joy ~ Missoula, Montana ~ February 2009
3 Day Worship Arts Conference
02.15.2009, Sunday ~ The journey began in Camas, Washington with a rental vehicle filled with five large suitcases and more. The Celebrate HIS Glory Conference originally scheduled for Missoula in December was delayed until February due to an extreme winter blizzard that closed all accessible roads. It has been since June 2004 that I ministered in Montana and my heart is very grateful the doors have been opened once again. The Holy Spirit is forever faithful to encourage my heart along the way. This evening I am blessed to spend with my brother and his family residing in the Spokane Valley.
02.16.2009, Monday ~ Following more precious time with my family, I met Constance, one of HGRM’s faithful intercessors who traveled with me to Missoula. Constance is a handmaiden of the LORD and brought banners, worship instruments and most of all her servant’s heart to Missoula.
02.17.2009, Tuesday ~ The roads once buried in winter snow are now clear and the warm sun shone over us. The trip seemed delightfully easy as is always the journey with a true friend. We arrived in Missoula in the early afternoon, unloading a portion of the vehicle, checking into the hotel, and began our Prayer Journey around Missoula. In the next few hours, we poured out 24 bottles of Anointing Oil in strategic places around Clark County. This is an unprecedented amount of Anointing Oils to be poured during a Prayer Journey. It was as though the LORD was imprinting HIS DNA (the 24 Elders in Revelation 4 and the Priesthood of Jesus Christ inHebrews 7) throughout Clark County.
02.18.2009, Wednesday ~ The Prayer Journey included four high schools: Hellgate, Loyola, Sentinel and Big Sky; Clark Fork River, Fort Missoula, Hellgate Canyon, Shadows Keep, Target Range, Lolo, Government Buildings, Gates of the City, Churches and other Holy Spirit designated places.
During our Prayer Journey in Lolo, Montana the Holy Spirit introduced a new worship instrument. In the earth’s realm it is called a “Tire Thumper!” We were like the “Three Musketeers” holding our “Weapons of Night Defense.”
In later research, the Holy Spirit provided the following for our Tire Thumpers: THE LORD’S NIGHT GUARDIANS! Scriptures: 2 Kings 9; Nehemiah 4:9, 22; Joshua 8:13; Psalm 90:4; Isaiah 21:8, 27:3; Ezekiel 3:17; Matthew 14:25; Mark 6:48; Luke 2:8; Acts 20:31.
The Holy Spirit is still revealing HIS purposes in the new weapon of warfare. Also, we took time to set up for the Conference today at Bethel Baptist Church.
02.19.2009, Thursday ~ The morning began with a few challenges, yet PAPA GOD is always faithful to bring forth HIS purposes. After many years of praying and many attempts, the conference was successfully video-taped and a DVD produced. Breakthrough does break through! This morning began with an introduction of the seventy plus worship instruments that I brought to share, followed by the Anointing Oil Class. The group made, “HIS Covenant New Wine! Holy Anointing Oil!” and then each made a personal anointing oil as well. The afternoon session held the class on warfare and worship hammers. Before the conference, Carolyn and Michele made HIS Covenant New Wine Worship Hammers for everyone in attendance. The evening contained one of my most treasured earthly experiences which is communion with my KING JESUS! We gathered and worshipped for HE Alone is Worthy! And intentionally embraced the presence of HIS Holy Glory!
02.20.2009, Friday ~ As I have facilitated over 80 Glory Ring across America, the Beginning Prophetic Glory Ring Workshop is the easiest for me as the path has become familiar like a well-worn prayer shawl. The obstacles, interruptions and distractions are consistently the same and therefore, it is easier to dismantle that in the spirit realm over something unknown. Part of our ministry vision is multi-generational and like many workshops the age range was 15 to 75. Lunch was provided in-house family-style which added to the community feeling of the day. Each one in attendance created a Prophetic Glory Ring and I spoke prophetically over each Glory Ring for the Glory of Jesus Christ, our Redeemer.
In the evening, we released for the second time TheSounds of HIS Glory Soaking Scriptures with worship music. As I was very focused on reading the Scriptures, I was quite surprised when I looked up and the pews were empty, and everyone was either lying on the floor or on a pew. The Glory just rather settled in over us like a thick fog blanketing a forest. Ahhhh...Jesus is LORD! (We were hoping this portion of the conference would be a part of the DVD but the sound system did not provide the quality we were hoping for, hopefully next time.)
02.21.2009, Saturday ~ The Advanced Glory Ring Workshop is a little more challenging than the Beginning, therefore, it is a delight to know that there are over 100 intercessors praying for the conference. Yet, the LORD is always faithful, full of kindness, gentleness and encouragement.
Carolyn and Constance brought Glory Rings which are included in the photo link. It is my heart for each to see the unique anointing and creative spirit of the FATHER that is released in each Worship Instrument. It is so easy to see the different Songs in Color and hear them singing to ELOHIM!
Then evening held another time of worship, proclamation, prayers and decrees over Missoula Montana for the Glory of YESHUA!
02.22.2009, Sunday ~ We left Missoula in the morning, arriving in Spokane in the early afternoon. Constance turned north toward for Colville and I turned south in the direction of Camas. The journey was long, yet PAPA GOD is ever faithful to provide strength, provision and protection.
02.24.2009, Tuesday ~ Additionally, the local news report in Montana indicated that PAPA GOD heard our prayers and some un-holy things that were hidden surfaced. PTL!
Many Blessings to Carolyn, Michele, Jim, Len, Constance, Howard and Sharon for all that gave to make this possible. May ELOHIM (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) be eternally blessed as we purpose to minister and serve HIS Kingdom and HIS people on earth.
