Greetings again my Brethren. Okay let us continue looking at the many ways God’s word comes to man. Oh yes, God’s word comes to man in many ways; once by the written word, we call the Bible, the Holy scriptures, and sometimes through the spoken word, we a call that preaching or teaching, and better than teaching or preaching a direct personal word to us from God to our spirit, and yes sometimes even in visions. You know often we get all wrapped up about how God’s word comes to us. Some say written is better than preaching or teaching, but you know my friend at the end of the day it does not matter how we get God’s word, what matters is we get God’s word, they are all God’s word to us. Recently, I released an article on the Ashbury outpouring. I will not use the word “revival,” because the word revival is not in the Bible. I feel God gave me this article, “A Move of God” get and read it I know you will enjoy it. Now, I never went to the Ashbury Campus, so maybe I should not have commented on it, but after sending it out to our distribution, WOW what a firestorm of dissent that is out there. I will be honest I do not know what happened all I do know is something happened and it is over. Again, flesh overrides Spirit, if it was a true outpouring of God’s Spirit. One of the main reasons for the disputing is the involvement of the homosexual, LGBTQ+, queer, and transgender communities with the services. Well, Ashbury is a very liberal Methodist College that supports the woke agenda. As we look back in history and at a “true” outpouring of the Spirit of God, He is always original, Holy, and pure in Spirit at the beginning, but as the outpourings goes on the less and less of God will be moving until man shuts it down with its ignorance, religion, and pride. This was the case in Ashbury, yes, homosexual, transgenders, etal communities where there in all their presumption and gay pride, but the Bible is true. Paul writes, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;” (Romans 1:25-28) Such people shall not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven, oh no, they may have led the

music (very typical of deception) at Ashbury, but they already have their reward and face the Lake of Fire unless they come to know Jesus Christ as their savior. Okay back to visions. I will use a personal story about visions in my life. We were living in Georgia and I was up for orders or waiting to see where we would be stationed next. My detailer, the one who cuts my orders, told me I had two choices. Choice #one to Korea stationed at a three star US Army Component and United Nations Command or a four star Joint Command US European Command in Stuttgart Germany. Well, for me either command would be a career enhancement and guarantee my next promotion so I was open to either. Now I had a wonderful friend, Val Castillo (who has passed from COVID last year) who also was up for orders and he would get the command I did not want to take. Val was a special Christian friend and Navy Officer of my rank. Well, one morning early about 4:00 am, or so, I was sitting before the LORD and as I started to get and begin my day the LORD dropped “Acts 16:6” in my spirit. I thought, “Acts 16:6.” What is Acts 16:6, I mean, I know John 3:16, but Acts 16:6? So, I grabbed my Bible and turned and read, “Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,” (Acts 16:6) WOW! “forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia.” The Lord just spoke to me and I am to select orders to US EUCOM in Germany and near Macedonia. I got so excited I ran upstairs and woke Karen up and told her we are going to Germany. I went down stairs and kept reading, “And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.? (Acts 16:10) Of course this is known as the Macedonian Call of which I too was called. And with my obedience to God’s word and answering this call, our lives in the States took on an international flare and so much more, Beholding His Glory was birthed in the Spirit, we have visited 88 countries for the glory of God, millions of lives have been changed mine included.

Next month we will continue looking at more Diversity of Divine Communication by looking at a few examples of communication. Do you hear Him draw near? He is speaking to us, but do we have the hearing ears to hear what the LORD is saying to us? Written by David Stahl
