GOD HAS GIVEN FGBMFA HIS PROPHETIC WORD…

Last month, we celebrated the fourth National Convention of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship in America.  I sense that God is preparing FGBMFA for one of the most powerful moves of God to ever hit this Nation.  As I look at our numbers, or our financial resources, in the natural, I would never make such a bold declaration, but God has proclaimed it through the prophets.

Last year, He told us to “strengthen the foundation, for I have given you the Keys of David, and the latter days of this Fellowship shall be greater than the former”.  In fact, He went on to say, in the 2009 Convention, that “this organization will be the catalyst for the greatest Move of God to ever hit this Nation”.  Recently, during the 2010 Convention, God sent another prophet to speak a word of encouragement to FGBMFA… and the power of the Lord was present to confirm His Word.

Some dismiss these prophetic words as hopeful thinking, but God has said “Believe the Lord, your God, and you shall be established, believe His prophets and you shall prosper.”

Here is a synopsis of the word of the Lord spoken to the recent FGBMFA Convention in Portland, Oregon:  God says– “Behold I do a ‘new’ thing and its going to spring forth through this organization.”  And He went on to say – “The latter days of this Fellowship will be greater than the former.  The latter things in this Fellowship are going to be greater than the former things – they are going to be unprecedented– the things in your families, in your marriages, and with your children- when you leave this place– are going to change”  –  the promises of God that you and I have been waiting for will come to pass!

This is not an exhortation; this is the Word of the Lord to you.  When you leave this Convention this weekend there’s a ‘new’ thing that will occur in your life – to the extent that you have you released the ‘old things’.

The Leadership of this Fellowship is not afraid of change – they’re not afraid of the ‘new’ thing – and they’re not afraid of letting go of the past to embrace the present and go on into the future.

The Lord is saying to this Fellowship “If you will release the past – I will move you into your future – greater things will I do for you than you have seen before – greater things will come upon this Fellowship than even in the days of old…  and it will be great  and marvelousjust as I delivered the children of Israel out of Babylon so I, the Lord thy God, will deliver you from every circumstance in which the enemy has tried to take you captive.”

And God said this to me last night, “I want you to tell them that it’s time for the men of God in the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship in America to rise up in confidence, to rise up in Me. It’s time to march and take the land.”  God said “in the past, the enemy has taken you into captivity– but I’ve freed you- so stand up and be men of courage, be women of courage, be men of boldness, be women of boldness!” For God says, “the things that you saw yesterday – you will see no more, IF you will obey My Word, it is My anointing, it is My presence, and it is My Power that I have placed upon you.  My authority rests within you because of the Blood of My Son – My authority is upon you and upon this Fellowship,” saith the Lord.  “You have not yet seen the rain from heaven that I will pour down.”

Yea saith the Lord, “it will not be done the way I was done in the past but it will be a ‘brand new thing’– so obey Me- and be released… and as Caleb, in his latter years, took possession of the promised land, so you will take possession of everything I have placed within your hand for I have put a ‘new’ coat of boldness and confidence within you.”

 “Look around this room because this is your legacy, look around this room because these are those whom I have called to this Fellowship and they will hold up your arms,” saith the Lord, “And I’m going to bring new men to you from the North, the South, the East, the West men- from the Joshua Generation, those in whom I have placed the Vision– and I’m raising up a man to lead that generation.  I’m going to send him to you, and you will mentor him and impart to him the Vision, and My anointing will be upon him.”

God has spoken His prophetic Word to us.  Now we must receive that Word, and proclaim the victory.  I am asking each member of this Fellowship to receive the above word as from the Lord and begin to pray for its fulfillment, and to move in faith in each of your Chapter Meetings.

Several weeks ago, the Lord spoke the following words to my wife, Barbara, concerning FGBMFA.  He said, “Don’t you hear the sound of the rain?”  God was reminding her that Elijah heard the sound of the rain while he was still praying for the rain.  Elijah sent his servant to look for rain, before it had actually rained. (I Kings 18:41)  This caused me to think that, if God is talking to Barbara about the future move of God in FGBMFA, He may also be talking to many of you.

I know from experience that many of you, even though you may have heard from the Lord concerning our Fellowship, are reluctant to share it with others and probably would not be so bold as to share it with the National President.  But I want to hear from you.  Tell me what God has been speaking to you and your Chapter.  I would like  to share the Word that God has given you with other members of the Fellowship.  God wants to use you to encourage your Brothers in the Lord.

Remember that, in the Book of Samuel, God did not speak to Eli, the established leader of Israel, about His plans for Israel, He spoke to Samuel, a mere youth, and He told Samuel what He intended to do in Israel…  I know that God has been speaking to many of you concerning His plan for us and I would like to hear what God is saying to you about FGBMFA.  Won’t you share with me what He is saying so that I may share it with the whole Fellowship?
