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.Hearing the voice of our Shepherd is becoming increasingly essential for our survival. So great is the golden glory of God that we cannot falter nor faint at this time. The darkness is increasing before the coming dawn of this holy love invasion.
The Lord is inviting us to be a part of the coming convergence of the highway to heaven rising to meet heaven invading earth. A singularity, like lightning, will flash on that day when we will see the tide turned, and we will arise with Jesus in the greater glory that generations have prophesied and dreamed about.
They were stoned, they were sawn in two, were tempted, were slain with the sword. They wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented—
of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in deserts and mountains, in dens and caves of the earth.
And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise,
God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us (Hebrews 11:37-40).
As we prepare for the great harvest and the fulfilment of the Great Commission, billions are in the Valley of Decision and billions of souls are at stake. Each one is more precious than all the wealth of this world.
The Lord has trusted us here at MorningStar with strategic relationships in many nations as we witness daily the Holy Spirit blowing from all directions. Our sensitivity to the wind of the Spirit is the only thing that can save us.
Supernatural Advancement Comes After Understanding True Unity
We do not yet fully comprehend the revelation about unity of which Jesus spoke in John 17. However, by faith, we know it is the Father’s will. As we grow in the prophetic and the increasing revelation of what the Lord desires for the MorningStar Global Prophetic Community, a city on a mountain, we can only imagine all the opportunities presented to us. These are treasures which are not hidden by the Lord from us, but available for us as we seek the Lord.
Thank God for the awesome relationships which He has entrusted to us through Rick Joyner’s teachings and writings over the last thirty years. As MorningStar has grown into missions over the last ten years, first through ZAO Water and now in tandem with CMM (Christ’s Mandate for Missions), we have seen the Lord catapult us with quantum leaps in connecting with truly apostolic and prophetic leaders, both men and women, in many nations. An increasing number of these leaders have had encounters with our amazing Prophetic Skype Teams or attended conferences here in the U.S. Rick has often commented how impressed he is with these hearts of gold. Many of the Prophetic Skype Teams have been blown away by the level of depth and anointing on some of these apostolic leaders.
We Learn How to Love
More of our folks in the U.S. are recognizing that we can often learn as much from them as we can teach them. Humility is essential to grow into real unity and maturity. Our cultural perceptions are often limited until we have a real encounter, face to face and heart to heart, with one of God’s creations from a far off land. Discrimination and racism have no place in the kingdom. American Christians make up less than one percent of all Christians on the earth. Westerners have much to learn about how the Lord is moving at this time globally.
Five years ago, the Lord took me up in a vision and showed me a giant gem with many facets, more beautiful than any diamond. I marveled at the splendor in each of the facets. The Lord asked me, “Do you want to know more of Me?” I replied, “Lord, You know I do.” He then answered, “If you want to know more of Me, then know and seek My wisdom and understanding in My creations in many lands.” I repented for my limited perceptions of what the Lord wanted to show me about His beauty and diversity in the breadth of His creation in the vast array of people groups across many borders and seas. Mother Teresa once said, “If we are busy judging those different from us, then we have no time to love.”
Bob Jones gave me a word last year about the Lord giving me sharper discernment in the days ahead. We need sharp discernment like never before to discern the times. Our hunger invites the presence of the Lord into our lives. Are we growing closer to the Lord each day? I hear the Lord saying that He wants to “wipe our slate and clean our plate.”
His mercies are new each morning. He knows many of our “plates” are full. He wants all of our attention focused on Him and how He moves. We need to see what He sees in every face and heart. We need to perceive with all of our gifts and talents the God-embedded potential in each one who He draws us to connect with. We are to release the seed He placed in them for anointed destiny fulfillment and walking in the fullness of His joy together. If we do not have love, we are nothing but clanging cymbals.
Supernatural Explosions of Love and Transformation
We are beginning to see glimpses of the greater glory explode, but what is coming as we grasp the revelation of God’s heart for maturity and unity will bring about something the world has never seen. As love takes hold of our hearts, we will see healings, signs and wonders, resurrections, and amazingly accurate prophetic words, words of wisdom and knowledge. These will melt the hardest hearts as we see a merging singularity of unity and love explode around the globe.
I can introduce you to many warriors of God’s love in far off lands who carry such a weighty presence of the Lord and walk with Him, perhaps like Enoch walked, with great authority and favor. They carry great substance along with the wealth of heaven. They hear and obey the voice of the Shepherd. They selflessly give this wealth all away every time the Lord blesses them, because God can trust them to steward wisely the riches of heaven. When we are fully walking in all the fruit of the Spirit, we will understand the revelation the Lord intended. If we are faithful in the small things, then He will trust us in the greater things, and we will do the greater things (or greater miracles) Jesus spoke of in John 14:12: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
Our sense of the urgency in reaching souls, raising the dead, healing the sick, and seeing little children speak life, faith, and hope in ever increasing waves of glory, releasing power and love to transform lives, will spread like wildfires of revival across campuses and nations in mere hours instead of years. Get ready!
Crossing The Threshold Into A New Realm, A New Time
We are crossing a threshold into a new realm beyond our known horizon. This momentum cannot be stopped. With this rapid acceleration comes heartache, at times, as we learn to adapt to the rapid change. The Captain of the host of the army is our pilot steering us through the storms of life. The enemy of our souls is fighting hard and increasing the attacks. Truly we were born for war. We need not be surprised by anything, for God’s kingdom cannot be shaken. We are learning together to see beyond our perceptions. With this massive download of grace He gives us some great gifts, and with this, comes great responsibility. We will be held accountable. Let us desire to act moment by moment in order to hear the Lord say, “Well done thou good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your rest” (see Matthew 25:21).
The Lord would not bring us to this point to leave us here. He knows the end from the beginning. He trusts this rag-tag army of disciples to unite globally, to rise up and see His glory shining brighter and brighter as the darkness spreads, just as He trusted those first twelve disciples to encounter Him and then go change the world.
There are many enemies sent by the devil to kill us. The Lord is our defender, and He is standing by. Like the servant of Elisha who saw the mighty army of angels, if our eyes are truly open, we will see there are many more who are for us than against us.
We cannot let fear, the news, ISIS, or any Islamic threat, or our own government’s slide into corruption, compromise, and attempts to replace our Constitution force us into capitulation and defeat. In Luke 18:8 we read, “I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” You will never find eagles in the chicken coop.
We Can Not Win This Battle Alone
We are called in this hour to rise up boldly as the “oaks of righteousness” spoken of in Isaiah 61:3 (NIV). But we cannot win this fight alone or separated from the brotherhood in koinonia. When we are ready to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters, then we can begin to understand this unity which Jesus spoke of in John 17. Psalm 133 illustrates the heart of the Father and the blessing that awaits those living in unity.
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments.
It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the Lord commanded the blessing—life forevermore.
“For there the Lord commanded the blessing.” Can I get a WOW? What a powerful song of truth and fullness grounded in unity and love. Are we humble and hungry enough to do whatever it takes to see the Lord command a blessing of life forevermore? We must decrease so He, Jesus, can increase. Our petty agendas and plans are one of the reasons, in my opinion, the Lord sits in heaven and laughs. Our life is not our own, if we are truly born again. Our reality is not of this world.
The Holy Spirit is moving all around the world. Ask the Lord how you can grow more into His heart for unity in the end times and experience for yourself “for there the Lord commanded the blessing—life forevermore.”
We invite you to jump into the river of life (see Revelation 22:1-3). It’s time to get out of your comfort zone, enter the faith realm where the Lord awaits, and experience more of what the Lord is doing in the nations to fully prepare for the great harvest right before our eyes.
Many New Churches Being Planted This Year
Help us support the many new pastors being raised up to plant churches. We offer our “Adopt a Pastor” strategy where we subsidize new church plants and new pastors for the first two years as they teach and train their new members about sowing and reaping, obedience, and tithing. New churches are being planted every week. For only $100.00 a month you can help lay the foundation of a vibrant koinonia congregation by helping the pastor focus on seeking and hearing from the Lord and raising up a strong body of Contact Jorge Parrott, Missions Director at 803-802-5544 ext. 391 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Below is a new “Organic Discipleship” church family being planted and taught by Molong Nacua and his young leaders in the remote jungles of the Philippines as they establish “Apostolic Hubs.” Come with us on a faith adventure. We have taken thousands on mission trips. We do not know how the Lord will move on each trip, but He always does. Everyone comes back changed forever.
