There is Increasing Power With Increasing Unity

By Jorge Parrott (all Scriptures from NKJV)

Jesus said in His last prayer on earth in John 17:11, “Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.” Several prophets have spoken the last two years about a new horrid evil previously unseen being released in the world today. The enemy of our soul knows that Jesus is returning soon. Evil persecution, even wicked genocide, ethnic cleansing, and untold acts of barbaric darkness are increasing daily in many lands and are now beginning to appear in the U.S.

As children of the Most High God, what is to be our response in this hour? We know the Lord and His body of Christ worldwide wins in the end, but we are fast becoming aware that we now have no choice but rise to the occasion to be the Lord’s heart, voice, and body to stand against the pervasive darkness. We are here to destroy the works of the enemy. Desperate times call upon us as children of the light to burn brighter and brighter. Even a little light casts out much darkness. Continue reading

Ebola Report October 2014

Dear Jorge, October 14, 2014

I wanted to get this to you right away both since you asked me for it and time is of the essence given the ebola pandemic in Sierra Leone (and elsewhere). I spoke with pastor Andrew Sesay (director of Iris Ministries in Sierra Leone) tonight again to get a few more details and to hear more of his heart for the current situation. I hope this helps you and those who may read this to have a better understanding of the situation and the possibilities there.

The Joy Set Before Us

By Jorge Parrott (All Scriptures are American Standard Version)

What an amazing time we are in. In these days the Lord is showing us a greater depth of prophecy and an increase in the supernatural around the world. We are in dire straits yet trusting God, aware of how much we depend on the Lord to be with us and lead us by His Holy Spirit.

When we visit our friends working in fifty-eight nations, we are called to walk them into greater intimacy with God and experience the wonders of the Lord in His beauty of holiness. While they often teach us about faith and courage in dire surroundings, we are sent to share real koinonia and encourage them to go higher together. Power evangelism happens when we release the supernatural demonstrations of power of the Lord through our love, sharing the Father’s heart, words, healings, and deliverances.

Reports abound of seeing a growing depth of revelation converge with the prayers of millions of saints going deep into intercession. The Lord is revealing the fulfillment of His heart to an ever-increasing number. It appears that in this season, with darkness and evil increasing dramatically, our Lord is needing us to increase our depth of understanding of His Spirit and His plans so we may be prepared, faith-filled, and ready to follow His marching orders in the coming battles.

Tribulations, genocide, hatred of Israel and its people, along with the greatest persecution of believers in history are all around us. The Lord is strengthening us for the spiritual battles ahead. The trumpet call is loud and clear to awaken us from slumber, to rise and shine for the glory of the Lord is growing stronger in us, His bride.

We are hearing the Spirit of the Lord lead us into deeper revelation of His words, “the joy of the Lord is our strength” (see Nehemiah 8:10), as He unfolds the mysteries of what this great harvest will look like in the coming days. The times before us are those days spoken of over the last few thousand years. Crisis is the threshold to God’s people seizing the opportunity to overcome and give the Lord more glory and honor.

The Laodicean church in the west is being shaken because “everything that can be shaken will be shaken and that which cannot be shaken will remain” (see Hebrews 12:27). We have not seen anything yet. Our peace in the Lord that overcomes the enemy must grow so that nothing surprises us and nothing stops us. The Lord is allowing events to unfold that are way beyond human remedy. We must keep our eyes on Him, not the enemy of our soul.

Our Perception of the Lord

Hebrews 12:2 “looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and hath sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Our perception of who God is needs to align with who God says we are. In the parable of the talents in Matthew chapter 25, we read about the last steward who perceived the Lord to be a hard taskmaster, so he had fear instead of faith. His doubt and lack of faith cost him his eternal destiny.

“And he also that had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art a hard man, reaping where thou didst not sow, and gathering where thou didst not scatter;
“and I was afraid, and went away and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, thou hast thine own.
“…and at my coming I should have received back mine own with interest. Take ye away therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him that hath the ten talents.
“And cast ye out the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth. But when the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory” (Matthew 25:24-28, 30).
Our faith is being tested moment by moment. We must choose the path of faith, stepping out of our comfort zones with boldness and courage. The time has come. Truth begets truth, and faith begets faith. The Lord will give us more, if He can trust us first in the small things.
How we see the Lord can make or break us and determine if we will be found faithful. Let us examine ourselves to see that we have a firm foundation in our perception of how we see the Lord of hosts. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you areas where your ideas are shaped by the world or by the Spirit of the Lord, “Christ in us, the hope of glory” (see Colossians 1:27).

The Great Apostasy is Unfolding

There will be many who fall away. In fact, many already have. Some fall from the spread of political correctness, others from growing weary in well doing. Others fall from crises, financial ruin, or allowing offense to take root in their lives. We must keep our eyes on Jesus, not the enemy. We are called to hold our focus straight in the ways of the Lord.
In James we see “that a double minded man achieves nothing” (see James 1:8). Whose report will we believe? The curse of an ideology leads to destruction, whether it be Islam, Chrislam, New Age, or the watering down of the gospel as in II Timothy 3:5 “holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power therefore, from these also turn away.” Effective evangelism and discipleship must be rooted in releasing the supernatural. We must know why we believe what we believe. We must demonstrate in power of the resurrection strength we have in the Lord Jesus. We must have the depth and boldness to defend our faith and demonstrate the supernatural. Continue reading

Seeing Jesus Now in the 21st Century

By Jorge Parrott (All Scripture references are NKJV)

What we think about and do in our daily lives impacts our eternity. We walk in two worlds simultaneously: the here and now on this earth and the eternal reality of which we see only glimpses. We know the unseen eternal realm is more real than this world. Last year, Rick Joyner shared a dream he had in which he met Enoch and Elijah. Enoch was the happiest man he had ever met (Enoch walked with God for 300 years). Then Rick met Elijah and asked him why Enoch was so happy. Elijah answered, “The way we live each day determines our eternity.” Continue reading

Cuba

By Jorge Parrott

20140226_181711As our team arrived in Havana, we had already been fighting much warfare just to get there. We knew the Lord was preparing breakthroughs and was about to release His glory on us and on the island of Cuba. I was the first one in line for immigration. The woman officer asked if I had health insurance. I had never been asked that on prior trips to Cuba. I said, “yes” but I did not have an ID card. She told me to go wait at the front for an official to question me.

My other team members got through and went on to retrieve our luggage. I waited impatiently and after five minutes asked a soldier where was the person to interview me. He said to just wait there. This was done four or five more times in the next thirty minutes with the same answer, “Just wait.” Continue reading

Preparing Apostolic Teams

By Jorge Parrott  (All Scripture references are New American Standard Bible.)

MorningStar is engaged at every level of ministry in preparing apostolic teams to go into nations making disciples in preparation for the return of our King Jesus: CSCL, MSU, special forces, missions, prophetic teams, MFM/MFC, 50+ Generation, congregations, and publications, to name a few.  Releasing the heart of the Father and humbly being sensitive to what the Lord has done and is doing in many cultures brings an increase in the favor and access awaiting us. Our sanctified imagination dreams with God for His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven, as we discover the inheritance, exploits, greater works, sharpened discernment, and open prophetic doors that the blood of Jesus’ sacrifice has provided us.

Shifting into Spring

smallshift-intospringby Dr. Nancy G. Daniel
We are in such an exciting season. The buds are going to bloom no matter what we do. Spring will come. The cold dark winter will melt into beauty once again.

The year 2014 for many has been hard to say the least, but let’s put this in perspective as we walk into Spring. Hebrews 4:2 says that we can enter the promises as we mix faith with the word. We have the opportunity to corporate with the season and SHIFT out of old patterns, thoughts and habits. We can WALK in the place we have only dreamed of, let us dare to believe. Continue reading

Beyond Our Ability–Supernatural Missions Of Hope

By Jorge Parrott  (all scriptures taken from the NASB version)

We as humans have a real knack for getting ourselves in awkward predicaments. I am often asked, “How can I possibly engage in international missions with so much uncertainty all around us? One of our founding fathers, Thomas Paine said, “These are the times that try men’s souls”.  I think every generation that man has been on earth ends up in a real ‘pickle’.  We must know the Lord and if we were not growing in greater intimacy with him we would really be in dire straits.  To those who have no hope in our savior, Jesus Christ, the world is much darker and devoid of hope. We must cling to the cross of Jesus Christ. Continue reading

Philippines-After the Storm

By Jorge Parrott

A small team from MorningStar/CM Missions had planned for several months to travel to the Philippines for the anniversary celebration of CMMP(Correll Missionary Ministries Philippines) and CMBI (Correll Memorial Bible Institute.) My wife, Anna Marie, and the Dean of our Theology School, Dr. Nancy Daniel accompanied me on this trip. Little did we know the super Typhoon Haiyan would hit the same day. We had all been previously and dearly love what the Lord is doing in this ministry. I first went to the Philippines in 1998.

The Winds of Change Blowing in Greece

The Winds of Change Blowing in Greece

By Jorge Parrott
All Scripture references are New King James version.

Vision Like Abraham

We are invited to many strategic places by a multitude of ministries. The Bible says to “know those who labor among you” (see I Thessalonians 5:12). We seek the Lord for every place our ministry teams are invited to visit. Blessed by our amazing network of trusted and embedded missionaries, we see doors opening leading us further into open heavens, blessed by the Lord’s favor and grace. May we be found faithful.

God loves when we make our hearts available to follow His leading by faith, like Abraham being called out of the Ur of Chaldees to find “that city on a hill.”  Abraham did not know how long it would take to get there or where it was. He just knew that he would recognize it when he got there.

Many of us are visionary in nature and have vivid imaginations. I love this Scripture:

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen” (Ephesians 3:20-21).

Terrorists Respond to Love of Jesus

The privilege of ministering to former Taliban, Al Queda, and Iranian Republican Guard soldiers, some of who were trained to hunt and kill Christians, further deepens my faith and holy fear of the Lord.  I know more than ever before that nothing is impossible with God. Our team’s recent visit became for us an impartation for a deeper walk with the Lord.

A True Father

We went to a refugee center run by a true father in the faith and apostolic leader who was imprisoned for eight years in Iran for his faith. The first night of my visit, I was asked to participate in communion with precious believers, many of who had just come to the Lord

The Bible says we have many teachers but not many fathers (see I Corinthians 4:15).  The love of our Father God pours out of our friend, Pastor Daniel.  He has ministered to refugees in Spain, Italy, and elsewhere, being able to speak Farsi and several other languages including English. The anointing on this true apostolic father is able to pierce many hard hearts and open the reality of heaven to them. He is patient and thoughtful, carefully training, equipping and loving these new believers while feeding and clothing them. He fulfills the commandment to make disciples.

Pastor Daniel was later beaten twice, arrested twice in a forty-eight hour period, and spent three nights in a jail cell built for eight but holding thirty-two prisoners. The arrest is connected to the ministry van he recently purchased that was involved in some criminal activity before he bought it. His case is continued to early December. He is free until that time. It is unknown if the case is really related to that or perhaps more anti-immigrant behavior by officials.

Growth In Spite of Persecution

The first Sunday there, I was asked to preach. The newly rented space is filled to capacity. From August to October this fellowship has grown from fifty to almost three hundred. Refugees from Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, and other Arabic nations have fled war zones and poverty seeking a better life for their families.

The room was noisy with the many dialects and skeptical looks of this American who knows nothing of the hardship and trials they have experienced. I knew to keep it short but to emphasize that the “veil has been torn,” and we have open access to the love of this God who answers prayer. I shared the word, Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews  4:16). Pastor Daniel told me later that one man asked him about me, “This man knows nothing of what we have been through and he smiles so, he must not have any problems.” Daniel answered him, “He probably has a mountain of trouble, he has just learned to stand on top of it.”

When I asked for people to stand up if they wanted to receive Jesus in their hearts, a few stood. Their neighbors or spouses pulled them down suddenly. A few minutes later I tried again asking people to raise their hands to receive Jesus. Again, suddenly neighbors or spouses pulled other hands down. Some stood boldly and some kept their hands raised boldly as Pastor Daniel said to go ahead and lead them in the repentance of sins and asking Jesus into their hearts.

We learned there was a Muslim spy in the room. The Holy Spirit nudged me to carry on and go forward.  I sensed angels in the room warring for Jesus’ holy love to pierce hearts.

I led them in a prayer of salvation. About twenty people prayed earnestly to receive Jesus. Then I asked those who wanted to experience going to heaven right then to come forward, as taught by Bob Jones. About ten came forward as I took them up to heaven. The peace of God prevailed and those who were hungry were very blessed. Some did not allow the Lord to touch them. This glory was readily available to all who hungered for it.

An Attempted Beheading

The next day our team went to Rhodes for the Investiture being held by the Order of St. John of Jerusalem. Two days after we arrived, we received a call that one of the new believers had been attacked and almost beheaded. His ear was totally cut off.  We alerted our intercessors and friends globally to pray. Later we learned that this brother’s ear had been re-attached and while doctors said he would never hear through that ear again, we did not receive that report. Many were praying for the hearing to be restored and God heard our plea.  Our brother hears again. Although some infection and gangrene set in and the lower part of his ear had to be removed, his hearing is intact, praise God.

A few weeks earlier an eighty-year-old man had given his heart to the Lord. On the way home from the meeting, he was attacked by radical extremist and stabbed to death in Athens.

The Earth Shook, Prison Walls Fell, The Door Opened

While in Athens, Pastor Daniel introduced us to young Ahmed. In 2011 he was in prison in Turkey as a non-Christian. He had been married a short time to a Christian wife. After about six months in prison, his wife came to visit him and said that she did not think he would be in prison much longer. Two days later a big earthquake knocked down the walls of the prison, and the door opened. He escaped and got on a boat in the Aegean Sea. The boat sank. He washed ashore in Greece.  He quickly gave his heart to Jesus and serves humbly with joy. He said that before giving his heart to Jesus, he had no peace. With Jesus, he has peace and joy unspeakable. He is so thankful and happy to know Jesus.

Partners Keep A Brother Out Of Prison

Thanks to those MorningStar Partners who quickly responded to pay a brother’s 1,800 Euro medical bill. He has not yet been accepted into the UN refugee program and would have faced eighteen months in jail for nonpayment. He required follow-up surgery and is now at a refugee center recuperating, thankful to have suffered for Jesus.

End Time Battles and The Greater Glory

Two days after we returned from Greece, in my morning time with the Lord, in a vision the Holy Spirit spoke, “I have opened my Book of Life to allow you to walk in my living word. During your time in Greece, I allowed you to step into the Book of Acts.”  For many in the days ahead, the Lord will open His word, and we will see the supernatural ways of God like never before.

The end-time battles are all around us. God is building our faith through these times of uncertainty. We have had plenty of teaching and been equipped and released to run to the sound of war. It is time for engagement and action. We are to be wise as serpents and gentle as doves. Jesus went to heaven so the Holy Spirit, our Helper, could come. God is with us. Let us sharpen our discernment and allow the Holy Spirit to help us.

We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Certainly we will be called to overcome much in this coming season. All seven churches in the Book of Revelation had to overcome something to receive their reward. Will the days ahead be any different? Any crisis we face has golden doors of opportunity for us to trust and know God even more as we demonstrate the kingdom of God. As Rick Joyner often says, among those listed in Revelation who will not enter the kingdom, the first listed is the coward.
In II Corinthians 10:4 we read, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.”
The peace of God overcomes the enemy. May we love more while we grow in the rest, intimacy, faith, and peace in God, through Christ Jesus our all in all.

Unlike Anything Seen Before

The distinguishing characteristic of the “heroes of the faith” in Hebrews 11 is that each one had done something that had never done before. The Moravian “trumpet call” resonates loudly today in the MorningStar global prophetic community. We must know the Shepherd’s voice in the days ahead to navigate these waters and do our part to see the Great Commission fulfilled.

Several trusted prophetic voices in the last year have said there is a new level of evil released in the earth. The Lord is preparing His people with increasing discernment and prophetic revelation to those who hunger for Him as never before.  His body may appear in disarray amidst the chaos and darkness spreading throughout the earth, but the Lord is not anxious nor wringing His hands in heaven. The Holy Spirit loves to breathe divine order upon chaos. We are authorized to declare peace to any storm. We carry the glory and peace of God and are to give it away everywhere we go.

Our perceptions and sensitivities to the ways of the Holy Spirit will need to heighten and sharpen in the coming days of tribulation and trials.  God’s word is waiting to be fulfilled in and through us—His entire body—in these days. Psalm 91:1-3 comes to mind often these days.

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence.”

No Other Option But Faith

I am often asked why we see so many more miracles in other nations than our own when our teams go out. The message might be the same as we hear at home. The speaker may not be dynamic. Perhaps it is because they believe what is being preached, and their situation is so stark and severe compared to what most people in the West have ever experienced, that they simply must trust God for a supernatural manifestation and often for their very next meal, let alone healing physically or financially. When there is no other way but to trust God, then He comes to save, heal, and deliver. God’s grace extends across America even now as He waits for us to bow the knee and ask for His mercy in repentance. The United States must have revival or it is doomed.

A Turning Tide

As heaven is invading earth we see a shift, a change at hand. In fact the kingdom of God is at hand. The compassion of Jesus poured out in any cultural setting, rich or poor, is being released across the world as those who hunger and pay the price to spend time in His presence are seeing the release of His heart and hand through His vessels of clay. A surrendered life focused on God’s heart and aligned with His will accomplishes more lasting fruit than all the unrighteous governments or riches of men.

Increasing waves of God’s greater glory and revival spreading in many nations is the news we should pay heed to, rather than the gloom of mainstream media. No longer do we need to travel to third world nations to witness miracles. (However, short-term mission trips can be one of the ways the Lord will bring revival back to our “Laodicean” nation.) If we seek Him, we will find Him in the here and now to release Jesus and His love. Jesus is inside of us wanting to come out in every nation, wherever we are.

Come Up Here!

God is moving and also waiting on us. The Lord is calling us to “come up here.” Carrying our cross daily includes knowing that every trial is an opportunity to trust God more, to know Him more, and to be imitators of Jesus. The resurrected life is one that knows the sufferings of life and that the grave cannot keep us from the surety of victory we have in Christ. We are called to urgently reach the lost and make disciples of all nations.

“Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for  the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2).We are seated in heavenly places with our King, so let us run this race well and finish strong for His glory. Jesus has gone before us and completed the work. The work of the Father is to believe. May we believe the way He made us to believe in the days ahead, by seeing the fullness of Christ, full of joy. We are His people, His body, hearts knit together by His love and power. Go forth with praise, thanksgiving, and joy.

The Underground Railroad in the 21st Century

By Jorge Parrott

In October 2012, I had a dream about the underground railroad. I grew up in Jacksonville, Illinois, a small Midwestern farming community. Prior to and during the Civil War, Jacksonville was known as a safe haven for moving former slaves. Several of the old homes are known for having underground railways where these former slaves came through town to resettle or to move farther north. Continue reading

October 2013: Mission Trip Report

Wow, where do I begin! My mission trip to Nigeria was amazing! My host ministry, United Body of Christ International (UBCI), was very appreciative to have a representative from MorningStar Ministries at their conference. My senior pastor, Rick Joyner, is widely known and respected in the Christian community there. Despite the negative stereotypes I had heard about the people, Nigerians in the Church are very humble. As one of them put it ‘what is holding Nigeria together is the fear of the Lord’. I went there covered in the prayers of my family, friends and leaders. We had peace about my going and I was blessed in the experience. Continue reading

Jorge Parrott: Joshua Generation Conference

The Generational Mandate, To Fulfill The Great Commission (5-10-13)

Jorge Parrott, Message Outline Notes

When I got into Missions almost 15 years ago I prayed for the Lord to introduce me to remarkable men and women who were changing the world and expanding the Kingdom of God. I am blessed to know 100’s of missionaries in over 50 nations. I have seen countless miracles, many saved, healed, and delivered, as the Lord got my attention and I stepped forward in faith. I left a successful business to follow the Lord’s call on my life. It is exciting to see many step out in faith and see their destinies unfold. Continue reading

India Christian Ministries – Ongole, Andhra Pradesh, India

My name is Mike Glenn and I would love to share with you my recent scouting/mission trip to India. I went to breakfast at Panera a few months ago with my friend Dr. Scott Lee (M.D.) where he revealed to me he was considering a career transition to full time missions. This man has been everywhere around the world giving lectures, so I was really interested to know which country God had placed on his heart. He said India, and I got really excited because India consumed my thoughts the previous 6 months and I thought this might be a God thing. Scott, knew the nations were my passion and wanted to get some feedback, prayer, encouragement and strategy from me, so we decided to just go to India together and continued to meet at Panera almost every Saturday planning it out.

Not Brave, Just Obedient Not Crazy, Just a Man of Faith

Not Brave, Just Obedient
Not Crazy, Just a Man of Faith

by Undercover Disciplemaker

I meet people all the time, who, when they learn where I do missions work, tell me I am either brave or crazy.  I don’t think I am either.  The Word says, “…go and make disciples of all nations…”  All nations must include those nations with a hostile spiritual environment and lack physical safety.  To go to a country or area because you see a need can be presumptuous.  But to go because the Lord personally tells you to is to go in obedience and faith.

The Generational Mandate To Fulfill The Great Commission

by Jorge Parrott

The beauty of God’s faithfulness and unending love permeates his living word and vibrates through the ages. Look at Mark 16:15-18: And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Continue reading

Encountering A Royal Priesthood in Africa

by Jorge Parrott

Often our unenlightened world view can be shattered as a mere carnal misconception once the Lord opens our eyes to more of his heavenly reality. In 2 Cor. 5:17 (KJV) we read “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things become new”.  In seeking to know more of God’s heart for the nations through deepening relationships with remarkable apostolic leaders around the world God has always exceeded my expectations. Continue reading

Exciting Frontline News From the Vineyards of the Lord January 2013

by Jorge Parrott, MorningStar/CM Missions Director


Cuba:

Native Evangelist Friend Allowed To Minister in Maximum Security Prison

Our dear MS/CMM friend and MSU College of Theology Doctoral student, who is truly an apostolic leader in this nation, recently played baseball with the prisoners and then began to preach loudly in the center of the prison yard. A prison official started to shut it down, but the spirit of the Lord won out. As our friend, (whose name we cannot mention) shared the love of Jesus silence fell over the entire prison.

When he gave the invitation to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior, every prisoner prayed the sinner’s prayer. Afterwards, the guards asked if the visiting team would play them. A double header was played as many were refreshed and having fun. At the end, another altar call was given and every guard gave their life to Jesus as well.

The final number of salvations through this one ministry in Cuba in 2012 totals close to 17,000. God is moving mightily indeed.

Covert Missions Asia:
Islamic Death Threats Cannot Stop God’s Love. We cannot mention the name or location of our friend as he has a death warrant on his head from Islamic extremists and is hidden in a U.N. refugee camp. This apostolic leader continues to plant churches even while in forced exile. Continue reading

The Doors Are Open

By Jorge Parrott

At times the whole earth has to shake for us to see heaven open. Does our complacency and lukewarm heart keep us from seeing into the spiritual realm? In 1 Corinthians 2:9 we see ‘…as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

We are entering a time of unprecedented change never experienced before. While the earth trembles and quakes at an alarming pace many nations are raging. Presidents and Kings come and go while those who are disciples of Jesus Christ are awakening to fresh
encounters of the Holy Spirit. There is a smell of fresh morning dew in the air. The Lord is preparing us so we are not surprised at anything that is offered by the world. God is preparing us to stay amazed at his indescribable sovereignty and majesty. Continue reading

Beyond Our Perceptions

by Jorge Parrott
What does it feel like when you miss something that was right in front of you? Our human nature often misses what can seem painfully obvious later. Our Lord is the God of surprises and even on the road to Emmaus Jesus was unnoticed until He broke bread with them, then He was gone from their sight in an instant. At least at the end of their encounter with the living God, they recognized who was with them. In these crucial times ahead, we will need to increase our sensitivity and expectation of the holy presence of God showing up.

Jehovah “Sneaky,” as Larry Randolph once said, loves to surprise us. He has been with us since we first believed. We read in Ephesians 3:20-21: “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.”

I have heard there are more than four hundred prophecies in the Old Testament pointing to the coming Messiah, and yet when Jesus walked in the midst of the Sadducees and Pharisees, most did not even realize whose presence they were in. Our sensitivity to the ways of the Lord shapes our perceptions of who He is and can even open the gate to our own deception if we are not pressing in to His presence continually in His Word and His fellowship. Remember when He was in Nazareth. In Mark 6:4-6, we read, “But Jesus said unto them, a prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.  Continue reading

MorningStar Partners Weekend 2012

The Your Place in the Harvest Partner Event this past weekend exceeded our expectations! Over 500 MorningStar Partners gathered here at H.I.M. filling the lovely and restored Grand Ballroom. We had a wonderful time as we fellowshipped together, sat under anointed teaching, and received fresh vision and renewed strength in the Lord. Some Partners traveled all the way from Switzerland, Canada, Botswana and Bermuda. It was a great time celebrating what the Lord has done and is doing among us.A very special thank you to all who came and gave so generously and joyfully.

Testimonies from the weekend:

“This past weekend was such a gracious display of God’s love for His body. Thank you all for sowing into me and the hundreds that participated in the Partner’s Weekend! I don’t believe I’ve ever felt so ‘treasured’ by a ministry. I’m so honored to be a part of MorningStar!” — B.F.

“Thank you sooooooo much for EVERYTHING . . . We feel like we got back way more than we put into it.” — D.P.

“I am always amazed at the quality of people who are a part of this ministry and I always meet interesting partners when I’m there.” — J.C.

“Last weekend I was at the event for partners and enjoyed it very much. Thank you for this very nice and interesting weekend, the fellowship and the really, really delicious food. I was impressed how well everything was handeled and done by the staff and how good it was organized.” — B.S. Continue reading

Sounding the Moravian Trumpet Call

By Jorge Parrott

At the recent Advanced Prophetic Conference Cindy Jacobs prophesied to MorningStar that the Moravian ‘tent’ of fervent prayer, which lasted 100 years is coming to us. It is a unique call to prophetic intercession for our own congregations, our nation(s), and the global community of churches, pastors and missionaries that are part of MorningStar. It is for the urgency of making disciples of Christ in every nation and the fulfillment of The Great Commission.

As progress takes hold on the completion of the Missions Base (see missionsbase.eaglemissions.org) at Moravian Falls we see the Lord giving us strategies and maps for taking the Five Fold ministries and the 7 Mountain Mandate along with the anointing of many great MorningStar prophets, teachers, and worship leaders to the nations of the earth through our network of MorningStar/CMM missionaries serving in 45 nations. Rick Joyner received this word in the late 1980’s of the time coming when prophets and teachers would worship together to release the apostolic advancement we are now seeing before us. Each can play a vital part as our MorningStar team needs ‘all hands on deck’.

We will keep you posted in the near future to the date we are planning, in conjunction with our monthly Solemn Assemblies, where our churches and missionaries around the world will be praying for 24 hours as a global chorus of prophetic and intercessory voices of MorningStar rises up to Heaven.

Here are some surprising facts to help us pray and plan our near term strategies globally. God is looking for available hearts to hear his voice and obey. Continue reading

MorningStar Missionaries Facing Increasing Persecution

by Jorge Parrott
Hello Missionaries and Friends of MorningStar Missions,

We invite you to read and subscribe to The MorningStar eJournal published monthly online to help you grow in your Christian walk. Rick Joyner, Founder of MorningStar Ministries, and I desire to strengthen our missionaries and equip them with many resources to help be fruitful disciples of Jesus Christ. You can download the e-Journal here.

This month includes an article by me about increasing persecution some of our missionaries are facing in some parts of the world. We ask you to pray for the persecuted church in many nations.

We invite you to check out our new web site that our webmaster, Nancy Daniel, has been working very hard on for many months. Each of our missionaries will have their own page(s) and their own url address to help promote and educate viewers about their ministry. We ask your patience as we are still having volunteer interns from MSU help upload data and updates to the site. Please email your feedback to missionsbase@gmail.com

Please send us your prayer requests for our intercessors to lift up your needs to our Father God. We love you and desire that you persevere in your fulfilling of God’s plan by faith.

Psalm 2:8 “Ask of Me and I will give you the nations for your inheritance.”

Article: by Jorge Parrott, MorningStar/CMM Missions Director

We see the great harvest coming as darkness is covering the earth. The glory of the Lord will shine brighter and brighter on us in the days ahead. Many leaders are saying the global body of Christ is entering its finest hour. While many people in the West are facing the most challenging times of their lives, I want to update you that many brothers and sisters in the Lord are serving with MorningStar Missions who are facing death, imprisonment, and the loss of homes and churches, some even becoming refugees.

Mission Base Update

Dear Donors and Partners,

My name is Nathan Plowman and I am the project manager for the Mission Base project in Moravian Falls. I am writing this letter to update everyone involved as to where the project is at currently and where we hope to be soon. First I would like to thank all those who have given their time, money and prayers to this project. We very much appreciate you joining with us in this very exciting project and look forward to the day when it is completed and we begin to see young people going out into all the world from this base. Secondly I would like to apologize for not updating everyone sooner as so many things have happened since I joined this project last year.

As many of you know this project had been halted for several years and was only revived last year by the vision and efforts of Tom Hardiman and Jorge Parrott. Since then we have had several challenges locating plans, contacting architects and engineers, working with the county to get the building repermitted, etc… Continue reading
