!! This is an Important Last Days Message to the Body of Christ !!

In the beginning of this calling I had intended to write a newsletter regularly. I realized very quickly that the work was to get the message out to the Body of Christ around the world, not to write repetitiously to a few. I have spent the majority of my time on this endeavor. I have changed the name of this news letter from Voice of the Apostles to Gather My Apostles to reflect and focus the Command of the Lord to me.
It has been a very interesting and busy year. I am continually amazed at how the Lord is continually moving this message around the world to His Body.
For those of you who would read this and have not heard I will recap briefly the Command given to me on Sept 28, 1996. I have written extensively about this giving the details surrounding it. I would encourage you to go to my web site or contact me and I will send you either by e-mail or the postal system Vol. 1. I have published the book "Gather My Apostles" on the web site. http://www.apostles-gathering.com I encourage all to read it. The time is very short and this is a serious matter.
The Lord first began talking to me and teaching me about Calling His Church to Order back in 1986. The last five years that I was ministering the gospel of Jesus Christ over in remote jungle villages in Asia, the teaching became more intense and permeated my soul almost every waking hour as the Lord imparted this message to me. The Lord told me to write it all down.
On my return to the States the Lord called me aside from everything else and commanded me to write the book. For the record, He commanded me twice to write this book. The first time He told me to write it, I did not begin the work. A month passed where nothing would go right. The second time the Lord commanded me to begin the work it was in the form of a reprimand.
When the book was almost finished the Lord came to me one morning very early. He began by calling my name. It was very formal. I didn't respond immediately I didn't want to wake that early. Finally at the insistence of the Lord's words I answered with "Yes Lord", He then spoke to me and said, "Gather together My Apostles". I didn't fully understand and I asked Him to make it clear to me. He then said, "Gather together My Apostles from around the world into one place and time as has not been since the days of Pentecost".
For the next three days I sought the Lord almost constantly for more information and understanding. He was silent. On the third day I became angry and demanded to know why He told me this and what He expected me to do with it? He finally answered and said, "I have given you the wisdom and understanding to discern who is and who is not an Apostle unto me". Then His last words that day were, "Gather My Apostles"!
This command began to come on Sept. 28, 1996. I wrestled with the Lord everyday and every night about this call. I was not looking for any new battles to take on. If anything, I had asked the Lord to release me from the ministry after many years of serious persecution. In Dec. 96 I was watching a preacher on television talking about the Glory of the Lord for the Last Days when suddenly the Lord spoke to me loud and clear startling me. He said, "I have given you the Key that will Unlock my Glory and the Final Move of My Spirit for these Last Days". Until that moment I had not thought about this command being a Key. That same day all day I could literally feel the Riches of His Spirit. From deep within my spirit I felt like one of the richest men who ever lived.
I began to move out on this calling in Jan. 97 after the Lord told me to move quickly. He let me know that the meeting would be on an anniversary of the time the Command was given. Thinking it might be in 1998, I spent many months this year seeking the Lord for confirmation on the Date. The meeting will be during the Feast of Tabernacles 1999, the third anniversary of the Command.
I started a new web site after the Lord told me to increase the Internet presence. I have named the new web site The Apostles Gathering. There is plenty of space to publish the book and anything else necessary to this work. I would encourage all of you to actively participate in this work. The time is short.
The Lord is Calling His Church to Order right now. We are racing towards a head on collision with time and the fulfillment of Prophecy.
The Lord has kept me on a very tight reign this past year. I have not been allowed to turn to the Left or to the Right. The Lord has increased the gift of discernment in me. There have been times when I have experienced the Holy Spirit literally turning me into a True and False Meter or Lie detector. I have had the Spirit of the Lord come on me at crucial times of this Calling. When the Truth was being spoken it would feel like my entire being was about to explode with the Presence of the Lord. When a Lie was spoken the Presence of the Lord would subside. Every time the Lord has been faithful to confirm what He was showing me in each situation. I have had to have the gift of discernment throughout my walk with the Lord especially while ministering in the midst of the Buddhist. Since I have moved into this Calling to Gather the Lord's Apostles I have experienced a new dimension of this vital gift.
During one of the incidents where this discernment and confirmation was at work the Lord spoke some powerful words to me. Some one prophesied that there should be a preliminary meeting in Jerusalem this year. Even with the kind of discernment at work that I have just described, I still sought the Lord for more confirmation. He confirmed that there was no need to go to Jerusalem. Then He said to me, "This Gathering of My Apostles under My Command is about the bringing forth of the New Jerusalem. It is about the fulfillment of the Times of the Gentiles. It is in this fulfilling of the End Times of the Gentiles that my beloved Israel shall be provoked to jealousy. Use caution move not by the flesh, move not by power nor by might but by my Spirit saith the Lord." This word was given on 7-8-98. As you can see this is of Utmost Importance.
On the Day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came in like a mighty rushing wind, He birthed the Church of our Lord Jesus. The Holy Spirit unrestrained by doctrines of men, set up the Order of Authority and the precedence was set for the Church. The Holy Spirit demonstrated to all, that He was able to Command the Church and fulfill the Will of God using earthen vessels. No demonic power could restrain Him. History has shown that only the wrong doctrines of man and devils can quench His power among us. (From the book Gather My Apostles)
It is written that the Gates of Hell shall not prevail against the Church. Satan's only effective weapon against the Church is to convince the Church of a lie. If he can do this then He will be able to prevail. God has given man a choice and He never takes away their God given right to choose. If you choose to adopt false doctrines born of men and devils God will not stop you. But He will not endorse those false doctrines with the Power of His Spirit. He never has and never will because God does not change. It amazes me how people even today really believe that sooner or later God will just have to come around. After all, this is how we do it in our Church.
Jesus our Lord is Alive. He is Glorified. He has not changed. He has promised us that He would never leave us or forsake us even unto the End of the World. Now through the Holy Ghost the Risen Lord is able to command and disciple even more and abide with His disciples continually.
The mind or spirit of Religion says Jesus has gone away. Any man who claims to have been with Jesus to sit at His feet to learn of Him must be a heretic.
The Apostle's ministry was a foundational calling. No one builds a house and then rips out the foundations. For two thousand years men have corrupted what God birthed into the earth in His Church. They have perverted the Will and Ways of God to suit their own will and ways. Generation after generation, perpetuating this system of man in one form or another dividing and numbering the people of the Most High. They have replaced God's Order, God's Ways, and God's Government with their own. The most diabolical false doctrine every perpetrated on the Church was that miracles went away with the Apostles. This one short statement from men and devils struck at the very roots of the Christian faith. This one short statement robbed the Church of their God given authority, leadership and faith itself. And no one seems to notice or care. That time is coming to an end.
The Spirit that is behind all this is Mystery Babylon the Great, The Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth. This Spirit is revealed to us in the book of Revelation. It is a spirit not a geographical place it is not a city. It is a spirit that deceives the nations causing the inhabitants to worship false gods and Mammon is the strongest of the false Gods. It does however have many inhabitants like a great city. Revelation 17 vs. 18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reighneth over the kings of the earth. We the Saints of the Most High God must have the wisdom NOT to abide in her.
Let's read what the Lord said to the Pharisees and Lawyers in Luke Chapter 11 -
47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the Prophets, and your fathers killed them. 48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your
fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres. 49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute: 50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation. 52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
Before I go any further, let me assure you this word and the curse is to this present generation as well. When the Lord spoke this to the Pharisees and Lawyers He was talking to that spirit Mystery Babylon that was influencing their doctrine and ways. This Spirit is working in Christianity just as surely as it was working in the Pharisees and Sadducees in the time of Jesus. When this Harlot is revealed in the book of Revelations we see that the Blood of the Prophets, Apostles and the Saints were found in her. Revelation Chapter 18 vs. 24.
I have written on this subject in the book Gather My Apostles according to the revelation given to me by the Lord. This writing is intended to be a news letter. Please read Revelation Chapter 17, 18 and 19 and chapter ten in my book. This is a very critical subject in this Hour for the hour of her desolation is approaching fast.
In Rev. Chapter 18 vs. 4 -- I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Vs. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven and God hath remembered her iniquities.
Since I moved out on this Calling to Gather the Lord's Apostles in Jan. 97. I have faced many battles. I can and will assure you that the same venomous spirit that stoned Steven, put stripes on the first Apostle's backs and yea even hung our Lord on the Tree is still alive and still the same. Nothing has changed. God has NOT Changed and Satan's devices have not changed.
In every battle and attack that I have experienced during this work, I have been acutely aware that the Final Chapters of the Acts of the Apostles are being written right before my eyes. This awareness has been a great help in guiding my actions. We all need this awareness and the discernment I have mentioned in this letter. Ask the Lord to give it to you so that you miss Him not.
Many of these attacks put the Pharisees of Old to shame. I believe some have even left Satan jealous with envy. The insults!! All from people professing to be Christians. Some come straight on and many adopt the character of Satan to lurk in the background to turn others away from this Command and work. John Chapter 16 vs. 2 and 3 They shall put you out of the synagogues; yea the time cometh that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. Looking back now I can see that the Lord had to include great persecution and obstacles in my training to prepare me for this work. I praise His Holy Name.
Every time believers in Christ Jesus dispel false doctrines (Lies) a little more light of the Glorious Gospel shines through. The wall that separated them from that truth is torn down.
Paul wrote in the book of Colossians Chapter 2 - Warning against false philosophy (doctrine)
8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the
rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
In Mark Chapter 7 vs. 6 &7 Well hath Esaias prohesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Some see this Command and message the Lord has given me as a revolution or rebellion. The revolution and rebellion against God and His True Church has been going on for almost two thousand years. The Lord is Calling His Church to Order Now. This is about Restoration.
The Lord taught me for many years about the Calling of His Church to Order before He issued the Command to Gather His Apostles from around the World into one place and times as has not been since the days of Pentecost. I had never considered this in my own mind and thinking until the Command was issued. I pondered and struggled with this command for a long time. The Lord was sure to tell me that it was not given as a prophecy but a command. Then He told me to look at Acts 1 vs. 2 thru 4 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: 4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. I had never seen or noticed that the word command was used there. Not until He brought it to my attention as He was preparing me for this work. Without the Command from the Lord to tarry in Jerusalem they would have all been scattered back to their own homes. It was no accident or mysterious move of the Lord. They were there, under a command from the Lord Himself.
I have lived with the Truth of this Command for over two years now. I know and understand that this is God's Strategy for Restoring His Church to its former Glory and bringing us unto His Latter Glory.
Through the generations we have seen God move from time to time when He could find a servant to obey Him. But corporately and as a whole the Power of God has not been moving in His Church to the extent it should. Yes, He has been most faithful to save those who have called upon His name to be saved. Many have experienced the new birth in their spirits even as they experienced the fullness of His Spirit on the first day of the Church on the Day of Pentecost.
The chaos and confusion that I have seen operating in the Churches and in the Body of Christ, no man can fix not with any teaching. It will take a Sovereign Powerful Move of God's Spirit to correct all the ills. Only God can makes us the Bride of Christ without spot or wrinkle.
God has always had a remnant in the earth. This Age will not pass in total defeat. Just as the Lord began this Church Age commanding His Apostles to gather in Jerusalem Acts. 1-4. So it will end with Him Gathering His Apostles into one place and time under His Command, for a Final Move of His Spirit for a Final Harvest.
This writing on doctrine for understanding is of the utmost importance. It is not of the popular message but it is true and vital to this time. As surely as the Lord is Calling together His True Apostles, the evil is working even now to confuse the issue. The false doctrines and understandings about Apostles of Jesus Christ are springing up everywhere. The same thing happened when the Lord began to reinstate His Prophets in the Land.
With the Prophets came many prophecies some true some false. It is the same now but with the Gathering of the Lord's True Apostles we will see more and more Commands issued some of the Lord and some not. This is a serious matter therefore you must get a good understanding of this subject.
There are many meetings being held. There are many men out there who are calling men Apostles as though they were Apostle Makers. As though it is given as a reward or promotion by men. There is no man given to call another to be an Apostle. Only the Lord can call a man unto Himself to be an Apostle. And there will be evidence in their testimonies that they have been and are being taught closely by the Lord Jesus. Apostles have a very definite purpose in the Kingdom of God. I have seen many strange doctrines on this subject just in this last year.
There are some who are telling people this gathering is not a physical gathering but a spiritual one. One man wrote me and asked me if it was to be a gathering in the Heavenlies. When I assured him it was not he really told me off. From what I can tell he turned many against this Command. I'm fairly certain None of them would have voted for me to be the one to carry this Command. And I'm asking what kind of WhooDoo is this!? Can you see the doctrines of men and devils at work there? God does not change and He is not a democracy. He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and if we can't receive the ones He sends after His own counsel and ways then we are a rebellious house. I really don't want to be included in that.
Then there are those who automatically transpose the word Apostle for Leaders. The word Leader evokes a worldly concept of leadership applying it to a spiritual reality, it doesn't work. The True Apostles that are coming forth today are going to point to the very real and present Leadership of the Lord Jesus. They take their orders directly from the Head of the Church, Jesus Christ.
This is about recognizing God's Order and Ways before the Congregation of the Lord's People. It is about His Apostles Gathering in respect for His Order and Kingship to repent for the Lawlessness of the Church in Days Past. Just the Church recognizing this and obeying, is a repentance. This is necessary to the Restoration. We can't continue to trash God's Order and Ways and expect His Blessing.
Here is a simple truth: If the Lord has called you to be an Apostle then you are an Apostle even if no man calls you an Apostle. If 100,000 men call you an Apostle and the Lord has NOT then you are a false Apostle.
Please understand, I write this letter only because the Lord has been dealing with me about doing so for some time now. I know that there will be some who are offended. But it is better to be offended now and walk in the Truth than to perpetuate false doctrine and lead the people of God astray. I am convinced that those who would be considered false Apostles by the Lord would stand in a very severe judgement. I do work for the Lord and must obey His leading and commands to me.
Some are manipulating people by throwing the word Apostolic around concerning their ministries or the level of the anointing surrounding their ministry, leaving the impression that they are Apostles. Then all is seemingly confirmed when everyone starts referring to them as Apostle. Pray for wisdom. Woe to them that bring the doctrines of men and devils to this table.
There was one who was putting together a conference. The e-mail letter he sent to the guest speaker came to my e-mail address. I know that it was not intended to come to me. I could see no reason why this letter should have come to me. I asked the sender if there was anyway he could see that the letter should come to me. We both agreed that it must have been the hand of the Lord.
In his letter he told the guest speaker that he had billed him as an Apostle for the upcoming conference. Then he told the man that to him and to many others he was an Apostle. I knew that the Lord had sent this letter my way so that I could see what was going on there.
There is a very real evil here. We as men cannot look around to see who we might call to be an Apostle and especially for the sake of promoting a meeting or ministry. The man holding the conference was in grave error. The man who allowed himself to be billed as an Apostle was in grave error, if the Lord Himself had not actually called him an Apostle. It was obvious by the contents of the letter the guest speaker had not spoken that he was called to be an Apostle. There is a great temptation here to some who feel honored by this not to rebuke it but to go along with it. And still others will believe that they are an Apostle, because another man seemingly led by the Spirit has confirmed that he is an Apostle even though the Lord never spoke this to him. If some one prophecies that you are an Apostle it would only be to confirm what you have already heard from the Lord Himself. In this case if it doesn't confirm what you have heard from the Lord it probably is not of the Lord. If you are an Apostle walking close enough with the Lord to be His Apostle, why would He first speak it to another?
In my case I rejected what the Lord was saying to me about calling me an Apostle. I rejected it strongly for at least six months. I assumed it was Satan trying to puff me up with some kind of religious pride. The Lord had to teach me. He had to convince me and He sent prophecies to confirm His words to me by people who could not have known my struggle.
I believe that all the callings of God for the Church should come from God and the Lord Jesus Christ the Head of the Church. But especially with His True Apostles and Prophets, who are sent by God, there is no election by men. Typically the religious community has received those by the election of men over those called forth by the Wisdom of God.
After all that I would say to all, this is not a fad or even a New Move of the Spirit. If Jesus by the Will of God has called you to be an Apostle then He will have convinced you in many ways. If you think you should be and are looking for a man to call you an Apostle then you should leave it alone rather than pursue it.
Personally I can't understand why any man of a sound mind would want to be an Apostle. But if you are an Apostle you will have to deal with it sooner or later. I know by the Spirit of God that this is a serious and dangerous matter. As the Lord restores and builds His Church for the fulfilling of the Will of God for this Hour, I can't believe that He will just wink at doctrines of men and devils that try to corrupt His Church, His Bride.
There are several who have taken me on as the very enemy of Christ saying that this is a ploy of the Devil to get all the Apostles into one place to be destroyed. This is ignorant and ridiculous. This gives Satan much more honor than he deserves. This would infer that the Almighty God with His innumerable company of Angels cannot protect His people, His Apostles in a Meeting. In fact the Last time the Lord Commanded His Apostles to gather the only bomb that was dropped was the Holy Spirit coming in like a mighty rushing wind. He was birthing the Church of Jesus the Messiah into the Earth with great Glory in the midst of persecution and tribulation.
The Apostasy of the Church that was prophesied in the Word is indeed with us today. It has been working and building for almost two thousand years. It is as 2nd Timothy Chapter 3 thru vs. 13 states. If you will notice the words of Paul beginning in Vs. 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them. There will be a remnant that will show forth His Glory in the earth in the Last of Days so that the world might Know the Only True God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent.
There are some who say they are Apostles who have rejected this call because they were not told the same by the Lord. The Lord told me from the beginning that if He spoke this to many men that same number of men would be doing the same. There would be more chaos and confusion and the Lord does not author confusion. I know that I am called an Apostle after the Order of Paul by the Lord Jesus. I also know that the King of Kings has not made me privy to all of His Strategies or even to all that is about to happen on the earth. Any man who thinks He has the whole counsel of God is walking in Arrogance.
This last year on three separate days I had the same vision. There was a chessboard set up with all the pieces. Suddenly there was a great shaking and all the pieces fell over. Then I saw a hand come down and wipe the board clean.
If you study the ways of God you will find that His Glory has always been manifest in the midst of some kind of tribulation or persecution. For any to think when I speak of the Latter rain of His Glory coming that it will be a cake walk, is in error.
This Gathering is to be in the last week of September 1999 which falls on the Feast of Tabernacles. From everything that I have seen and heard in the spirit and from other Prophets, I believe the world will begin to experience many calamities shortly after this Gathering of the Lord's Apostles. The final Harvest of Souls will be in effect in the midst of some great tribulations. Many throughout the world will come to Our Lord to be saved.
I have not written one of these news letters for over a year. I have learned. I believe the Lord has been having me observe as I have worked to get this message out. The main work has been and is still, to get this message of this Command out around the World to the Body of Christ. This is no small task. It is essential that we understand this subject on Doctrine that our faith be not in vain.
We are very likely the generation that will see the return of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The time when the Lord will deal with His enemies is close at hand. We must be diligent to be found in the Lord's Camp when this happens.
When I returned to the States after almost nine years on the mission field. I was broke, busted and sick. I had been through hard circumstances and relentless persecutions. On my return I begged God to release me from my vows. I prayed for two hours one day to be released from the ministry. I didn't want any more of it. That day He told me that He had been teaching me and preparing me and that if I didn't continue on in the path He had set me on, I would die. Death might have been welcome. But dying in disobedience and rebellion to the Lord was not an option I wanted to take. I know this offends many who would say, the Lord would Never do that!! I tell you as a witness the Lord takes His Kingdom business and the souls of this world very serious. To this day I don't live on my own strength. I have learned again that when I am weak then is He strong.
While I was writing the book I heard the voice of the Lord tell me that He had almost crushed me. He was letting me know that it was His work and that there was reason for it. About three weeks ago the Lord brought this to my mind. Then He told me that He was preparing many others in the same way. I have laughed when people have told me this is born out of Pride. They have no idea what I had to go through before the Lord delivered this Command or after the Command, to get me to move on it.
The first Apostles before the day of Pentecost suffered crushing blows to their faith. They had watched the Lord die on that cross. The one they had lived with and walked with for three years the object of their faith everything they had believed in was no longer walking beside them. They had feared for their own lives as His disciples. They were experiencing things that made no sense in this world. When they were coming into shore and someone said it is the Lord. Peter threw himself overboard naked. This was not a man who wanted to face the Lord. The last thing he wanted to hear that day I'm sure is, Peter do you Love me? Peter do you Love me? Peter do you Love me? Then the Lord tells him about his own death just before He leaves them again.
The men who would stand and speak the word of God boldly on that day were in no way filled with fleshly pride. They were filled with Spiritual Boldness from the Spirit of God. The Lord is preparing His Apostles in a similar manner even now.
I wrote in Vol. 1 that the Lord was preparing His Apostles and speaking to them of things pertaining to the Kingdom of God. Acts Chapter 1 vs. 2 & 3. I have received much evidence of this in the past year. The Lord is already calling and has been preparing His Apostles for this hour in the Spirit with no help from man. Let me share just one brief testimony I have received this past year
While ministering in Jerusalem, Israel in 1994 Jesus walked through my living room wall and said, " You are always in my presence, you are an Apostle". He then walked back through the wall, came back and said the same thing, He then did the same thing a third time. Having already experienced a lot of persecution I was not anxious to receive this call. Until this year I only told a select number of people. Many people considered me an Evangelist and I was content to be called so. About 7 months ago the Lord convicted me, while reading Galatians, that I should boldly walk in what He had called me to be. Your newsletters and the two chapters of your book are like reading my own testimony and revelations.
There is One Lord, One Spirit, One Faith and One Church. There is no division in Christ. Jesus said, in Luke Chapter 11 vs. 17 Every Kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. The Kingdom of God will not suffer desolation but there are many kingdoms built by men in the Name of the Lord that will suffer desolation. The time for this desolation is drawing near.
In my ministry I have talked with many Pastors. Each one is sure that they are right. Yet the churches are divided. There are over 300,000 Churches just in America. Each one like a kingdom in itself. Each one believing their doctrine is the right doctrine. Which one is right? Are they all wrong? This is a problem that is too great for any man to solve or unite. We are called to unity in Christ Jesus but unity is not possible without the Order of God. Without practicing God's Order and Ways we cannot expect the move of the Spirit that can easily unite the True Church.
The Lord told me as I stated earlier in this letter that the fulfilling of this Command was the Key that would Unlock His Glory and the Final Move of His Spirit for these Last Days. Even when I had the key in my possession for almost three months I didn't know it until He revealed it to me. I will assure you my intellect did not come up with this. Neither is Satan trying to bring the subject of the Lord's Apostles to light after working so hard for two thousand years to bury them. My state of mind at the time this Command was delivered to me, was anything but that of one who would invent something that he knew full well would bring more of the wrath of the Church and Satan to bare. This is not humility false or otherwise, this is the truth. As I shared earlier I really wanted the Lord to release me from the ministry.
When the Lord healed me and saved from death and the pit of Hell, I vowed to serve Him I told Him I would go anywhere and do anything He asked of me. I made these vows out of a pure Love for Him. I made covenant with Him and He took me up on my vows. Many times when I wanted to quit He would remind me of these vows.
As I have said in past writings, this is a Body of Christ thing not just an Apostle thing. We all should be looking forward to the Gathering of the Lord's Apostles under His Command. A woman told me this year that she saw this message going forth across the earth like lightning. She believed it was by the World Wide Web.
I testify that the Lord delivered this Command to me after many years of preparing me with an understanding of Calling His Church to Order. If my testimony here is true. Then the Wisdom of God would dictate that we do all that is in our power to bring this Meeting to pass with as much Order as possible.
I have experienced the Lord talking to me by His Spirit in such a way that the next day I would question it. I have also experienced the Lord delivering important messages that would affect a nation and there was no mistaking who it was or what He was saying. This message was far more important. In other words the Lord God Almighty is well able to make Himself very clear to us. I have quoted the words the Lord spoke to me about this Command exactly. They were delivered formally and without need for interpretation. There is no problem with remembering every word.
I asked the question in Vol. 1 --. I am not naive; the question is can His servants put aside their pride and differences, to see this come to pass? Can His servants, get involved, just because it is for the good of the Kingdom and for the King? After two years I can tell you that pride is most definitely an enemy to this Calling. This is a real Shame equal to the magnitude of the Calling.
It is true that the Lord has Commanded me to Gather His Apostles into one place and time. He has explained to me that He has given me the wisdom and understanding to discern who is and who is not an Apostle unto Him. He has prepared me for the work He has called me to. That is all I am doing. I know that I am not the Chief Apostle nor will I be the Chief Spokesman on that day or desire to be. I could put together Apostolic meetings regularly. But this is not the direction I have received of the Lord. As I said, I have been on a tight reign and cannot turn to the left or the right concerning this Command.
Matthew Chapter 24, vs. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. We are living in the most perverse generation since the days of Noah. There is nothing in prophecy to make us believe that it will do anything but get worse. But in the midst of it all the Lord does have a righteous people sent to the lost and dying of this world. We are required to maintain God's Order and Ways regardless of the surrounding society. The perversions of God's Ways in the present society must not be interpreted as the Order and Ways of God that operate among us. He is not moved by our politics any more than He has embraced abortion.
From Vol. 2--- We are in a short window of time where the Love, Mercy and Grace of God can still be manifest to the World, before all Hell breaks loose on the Earth. The Lord in His Mercy is Calling us to Order. There will be no other time like this.
There have been too few teachings on Apostles and too many in error. Traditionally this has not been an important subject for the Church. Why would it be when it is widely believed that there are no more Apostles. Many now assume they have a good handle on this subject. Many are happy just with the description of Ones who are Called or Apostles establish Churches.
I would suggest that you read the book I wrote Gather My Apostles. It is free on the Internet and I would be happy to send you a copy of the book as I am able. There are also a couple of News Letters that I have written. I wish there was some way to be all inclusive and write only a few pages but it is not possible.
Please help me to get the message of this Command out to the Body of Christ around the World. There are many who have been called to be an Apostle by the Lord and will not tell anyone for fear of persecution and being ostracized. But the time is upon us. The Lord is calling His Apostles together. He is Calling His Church to Order and will Restore His Order and Ways among us.
This Gathering Under the Lord's Command is to be at the end of September of 1999. There is not much time. I have been and will be doing all that I can to fulfill this Command and give the Lord the meeting He has called for. I have been working to get as many copies of these newsletters on as many continents as possible. Printing cost and mailing cost particularly overseas is expensive. There have been many Apostles who have responded to this Call already. I cannot do it alone. If you have received the revelation of this truth by the Lord then I would ask you to get behind this work over the next year in every way you can. Too often the Church hears of the Will of God and then challenges it or says if it is of the Lord it will happen automatically without our help. This is another erroneous teaching among the Churches. It is in direct opposition to our position as servants of the Lord. As His Servants it is our duty to fulfill His Commands and Will as it is revealed to us.
The day the Lord revealed to me that He had given me the Key to Unlock His Glory and the Final Move of His Spirit for these Last Days, I felt the very Riches of His Spirit and of His Glory deep within me. I pray that each of you will know the depth of His Riches and Glory as we move towards the fulfilling of this Age.
The Apostle Paul Wrote in the Book of Romans Chapter Eight.
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
This is rich scripture. For several months now I have been hearing the Holy Spirit talk to me about this Manifestation of the Sons of God. All of creation has been waiting for and travailing for the manifestation of the Sons of God. All those who have received the New Birth provided for in our salvation are the Sons of God. I write this so that no one will think that I am speaking of Apostles only.
The religious systems of man influenced by the same spirit as the Pharisees and Sadducees (Mystery Babylon) Have suppressed the Sons of God generation after generation. We must fulfill the righteousness of this Command from God to Gather His Apostles. According to the Word of the Lord to me this will Unlock His Glory and the final Move of His Spirit for these Last Days. The world and all of creation is about to behold the manifestation of the Sons of God through this outpouring of His Spirit.
In Daniels vision He saw the Lord Jesus and then he saw the Saints of the most High. Daniel 7 Vs 18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever. In vs. 21 Daniel saw the beast that would wage war and prevail against the saints. (The Anti Christ spirit has been at work since the beginning of this Church Age.) But in Daniel 7 vs. 22 Until the ancient of days came, and judgement was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. I say to you that we are in that ancient of days as described by Daniel.
The True Apostles of Jesus Christ must be found, recognized and brought to this Gathering under the Lord's Command. The meeting will be open to all in the Body of Christ. But those who stand as Apostles before the Church in that meeting will have been through a discernment process. To those of you who have been called by the Lord to be one of His Apostles, Please contact me as soon as possible. I need to read your testimony and know why you say you are an Apostle. If possible write about the mission that the Lord has given you. I will hold everything in strict confidence. I don't have the time to search through books or web sites looking for the evidence of your Apostle ship. Nor will I assume you are an Apostle because of reputation. It is my sincerest desire to be able to bring this Meeting to pass after the Will of God with out the influence of doctrines of men and devils. Many of the Apostles have been given visions and directions that if not performed will mean that many in this world will perish who should not.
Let me leave you with this word the Lord gave me on 7-8-98 as I sought Him for direction about a preliminary meeting in Jerusalem
"This Gathering of My Apostles under My Command is about the bringing forth of the New Jerusalem. It is about the fulfillment of the Times of the Gentiles. It is in this fulfilling of the End Times of the Gentiles that my beloved Israel shall be provoked to jealousy. Use caution move not by the flesh, move not by power nor by might but by my Spirit saith the Lord."
I hope and I pray that you will not easily dismiss this, it is too important. I hope that this letter has at least re-enforced in you the seriousness of the hour we live in. I do encourage you to read what I have written on this subject. Feel free to contact me. The contact information is below.
God Bless You all with the Riches of His Glory in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.
