Be Like Jonah


By Richard L Spangler

 We all know the story of Jonah, the prophet who tried to run from giving God’s message to Nineveh. But, there is much more to his story and that is why I titled this article “Be Like Jonah.”
   Never-the-less In Jonah chapter 3, he heads to Nineveh. Nineveh was the capital of the Assyrian Empire. A city 60 miles wide and a population of 120,000. The Leadership of Nineveh was brutal to their enemies and their own people. The leaders of Nineveh would use terror and brutality in order to maintain control over the empire. Their methods included, mass beheadings and making pyramids out of the heads, impaling people on stakes (an early form of crucifixion) and nailing bodies to the walls of the various cities in empire. The Assyrians did not worship God Jehovah. Jonah knew all of this, No wonder he didn’t want to go there.

   Jonah was walking into a very politically incorrect situation and one that could cost him his life. In Jonah 3:4 He enters the city and declares the Word of the Lord of its impending destruction. A wonderful thing happens, the people of Nineveh believed God. The people proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth. After that the King heard of the move of God in the city and he joined in proclaiming a fast for man and beast. Then the king led everyone from their evil ways and the violence they had done. The people and the king repented. When God saw their works and their repentance and He decided not to destroy them.
   We should be like Jonah, he preached God’s message in a politically incorrect situation. Political correctness says for the church, and individual believer to keep quiet and don’t speak out. If we speak God’s Word we can be branded uneducated, backwards and politically incorrect. But if we, like Jonah, speak the Word that God in power and authority, telling them message of forgiveness through Jesus Christ, to the people around us we too can have the same results. We can change our neighborhoods, our cities, our states and our nation.

   We do not need to look to the political leadership of our nation for change. The leaders of Nineveh did not change until they saw the people change. The same is true of our leaders, they will not change unless we lead the people to change.

   It is up to us to take the message of God’s love to the streets of our cities like Jonah did and expect greater results. The reason I say greater is that we have the Holy Spirit. We have the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:4-11). The combining of the Fruits and the Gifts of the Spirit creates a far greater anointing than any Old Testament prophet ever had, so we can expect greater results.  

We are God’s messengers to this nation and to the world. It’s time to put action to our prayers for our nation. Do not be afraid of those who call you names and say you are politically incorrect, stand your ground and speak the Word of God, demonstrate His love and power and expect change.

The Power Behind ISIS



By Richard L. Spangler

 Most people are concerned and rightly so about the rise of ISIS. The brutality of these Islamic Terrorists, the mass executions and beheadings, are shocking. I began asking the Lord Jesus to reveal the spirit behind these terrorists and how do we as believers’ war against the power behind ISIS and defeat it and them.
      I was recently led into a study of Jonah and was then led by the Holy Spirit to take a look at Nineveh. Most of us know some of the story Jonah and Nineveh and how Jonah did not want to go there because they were an evil people and an enemy of Israel. As I looked deeper into Nineveh, I found it was the capital of the Assyrian Empire and it was brutal its enemies and its own people. The leaders of Nineveh would use terror and brutality in order to maintain control over the empire. Their methods included, mass beheadings and making pyramids out of the heads, impaling people on stakes (an early form of crucifixion) and nailing bodies to the walls of the various cities in empire. This sounds strangely familiar to what is being done today by ISIS.
  This is more than a man or a group of individuals doing these things for a short time in history. As we have seen these tactics have been used for thousands of years and have been used in the same region of the earth for the same purpose to control and rule over man by whatever means necessary. It is an evil principality causing men to control and manipulate mankind. It can be called the Assyrian Principality. Control over men is a tool that this principality uses to wage war against God and to stop the Word of God from being fulfilled. This is why all of these men and empires and governments have a demonically inspired hatred of Jews and Christians and an overwhelming drive to wipe out all Jews and Christians.  
   I asked the Lord, “How do we fight an evil spirit which is a principality?”
 The Lord said, “You don’t, I do. Ask Me to rise up and fight.”
 I then asked, “How do we ask?”
The Lord spoke, “Call upon all the Young Lions of Judah, and tell them how is the time to roar in Spirit. To raise the sound of praise and worship from every corner of the earth and intercede for mankind.”
 I pondered for days about the Lord had said. Then I woke up one day an hour and half early by the Spirit and I was immediately and passionately worshipping the Lord God, Our Father. Then I found myself transitioning by the Holy Spirit. He led me into repentance for my sins. There was a release of forgiveness that was amazing and could not help but worship God more.
  Then I found myself crying out for forgiveness for the Church as a whole. The Spirit then moved me to cry out for forgiveness for our nation. And remind the Lord of the covenant with this nation.  After this, I began declaring His faithfulness to Israel and to His Bride (the Church). Then I began to declare that the Lord magnifies His Word above His Name (Psalm 138:2 AMP).
 With that I cried out for the Lord God to arise and defend His Word from the Assyrian Principality, who has declared war on His people Israel, His Bride (the Church) and His Holy Word. I called on the Lord God of Heaven and Earth to wage war against this principality destroying its stronghold on the earth and totally defeating it and bringing confusion to its servants (men) on the earth. I Worshiped and Praised God for the victory.
  This experience in worship and intersession is the guideline for the Young Lions of Judah to stand and roar in the Spirit against the Assyrian Principality and its allies. It’s time for the Young Lions to Roar.

The Gatekeepers

Enjoy this article from 2010, I hope it blesses you


By Richard Spangler
  We, believers have been asking God to release a flood of the Holy Spirit into our nation and the earth. This Holy Spirit Flood will happen when we understand that we have a reservoir of the Holy Spirit in our hearts. As in the natural every reservoir (heart) has a dam and each dam has floodgates of the Spirit and we are the gatekeepers. The gatekeepers control the flow of the Holy Spirit out of our hearts.

 Sadly, many gatekeepers (believers) try to keep the floodgates closed and hold on to all that God has given them. They only allow a few splashes of the overflow of the Spirit to flow out. They do not understand that the reservoir of the Holy Spirit in their hearts is greater than they can imagine. Colossians 2:9-10 states, For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given the fullness of Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.(NIV). In other words, we have the fullness of God in Christ in the reservoirs of our hearts waiting to be released.

  We as gatekeepers must open all the floodgates of our hearts and allow the River of the Holy Spirit to flow out into our lives and the world.  This River of the Holy Spirit has all the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) and all the Gifts of the Spirit (I Corinthians 12:8-10) and all we have to do is open the floodgates to have access to everything in God and all that God is. We are not limited to just one or two of the Gifts of the Spirit, just as we are not limited to having one or two of the Fruits of the Spirit in our lives. God wants all of the Gifts of the Spirit as well as all of the Fruit of the Spirit out of our lives. All we need to do is open the floodgates and the Holy Spirit will guide us.

  The more we allow the Holy Spirit to flow out of us, the more we receive from God. The Law of Use and the Law of Multiplication come into divine activation into our lives. We get much more of God than we give out. God will continually expand and overflow the reservoirs of our hearts. This will cause an even greater flow of the River of the Spirit to flow out to the world.

    Our nation is a dry and thirsty land and it needs the flow of the River of the Spirit. This is the only way to change the course of our nation and bring about the great awakening that we need. So, take the step of faith, be a gatekeeper that opens wide the floodgates and be a part of the next great awakening in this nation and the world.

The Adventure Continues...


This is an excerpt from my new book, the Working title is
"The Adventure Continues:
More Adventures in the Spirit"
 The Plateau of Sacrifice
by Richard L. Spangler
   Once again I am caught up in the Spirit, finding myself where I was before, standing on top of one of the Mountains of Refreshing, one of several. There is a light breeze of refreshing blowing around me and yet through my body, soul and spirit. The view is as amazing as before. There are beautiful valleys below me and the glorious mountains reaching upwards to high places of Heaven.
   Suddenly, the Wind of the Spirit sweeps me up and I am soaring above the highest of the mountains and beauty below me is breathe taking. As I begin to worship our Father, the Glory of God surrounds me, becoming so thick I can see nothing but the light of His Glory.
  
 I feel myself dissenting through the Glory, the ground racing up to meet me. I land softly and starts walking, as the glory lifts. I stop in my tracks, stunned by what I see.  I am in a barren place, no trees, no plants, no grass and no water as far as I can see. The ground looks strange. Upon closer inspection, the ground is a solid black rock.

  Since, the Lord put me here I decide I might as well explore this new place. I walk in one direction for the rest of the day. As evening came, tried and hungry I lay down on the rock ground to try to sleep. After a restless night, I get up and continue my trek across the rock. After walking most of the day, I come to what looks like ledge. To my dismay, it is a sheer drop off, its looks like its hundreds of miles down to the valley below. I turn walking along the edge, looking for a way down. This takes the rest of day. As night fell, I move away the edge and lay down to try and get some sleep. The next day was the same and next.
  As the day dawns, I feel like every muscle and bone in my body aches, I am tired and hungry. The realization hits me, this is a plateau and there is no way down. My frustration explodes, and I yelled at God, “Why have you left me here?   “Why are you not coming to my rescue?” At times I shake my fist skyward and I other times I pound my fist on the ground.  

   At some point my yelling turns into pleading with God and asking for forgiveness for every sin I have done or might have done. Finally, (dirty and bloody) I lay down and say, “Lord I am yours. If this is where my life ends, then take it, I surrender to you my Father and my God.” Just then,a bolt of bright light, strikes me, it lifts me up. Then, I fall asleep from exhaustion.

    I don’t know how long I was asleep but I woke up lying on a carpet of grass. Sitting up, I am surrounded by fruit-bearing trees and right beside me there is a brook of crystal clear water. I roll over and drink my fill from the brook. Then, getting up I pick and eat some of the fruit from the trees. Standing there, I begin to think, “How did I get here?”
   I hear a familiar voice behind saying, “Get where?” I turn and there stands Jesus, smiling at me. I fall to my knees and worship Him.
 
He lifts me up and repeats, “Get where?”

“Get here” I reply.
Jesus says, “You are in the same place. You didn’t go anywhere.”

“But, I had to, this is a beautiful place and the plateau was a black barren place.” Jesus starts laughing. This is very confusing to me.
   
    Jesus explains, “This is the same place. It is called the Plateau of Sacrifice. This whole plateau is alter and the moment you surrendered your life, your sacrifice brought forth all that you see around you. Sacrifice always bears fruit and the greater the sacrifice the greater the fruit that is produced. Come and walk with me.”
  As we walked I thought about what Jesus had said. I began to think about his sacrifice, which is the greatest sacrifice of all and the abundance of fruit that has come from His sacrifice. I was glad that I would not have to make this sacrifice again. Then Jesus said, “There are many places of sacrifice.” This caused my heart to sink a little.

 Then I spoke, “I hope I will be able to make the sacrifices when the time comes.”
 
Jesus: “You will be able but you also must be willing.”

   We walked on, enjoying the beauty that surrounded us. There was even a tree lined trail that had appeared on the side of the plateau. I looked away to enjoy the view and hear, “See you soon my son.” I looked back and Jesus was gone. I continued down the trail. 

   Two thoughts filled my mind. First was that there are many places of sacrifices, this caused a part of me to cringe, I knew that was my fleshly nature not wanting to sacrificed. The second, was that I was able but needed to be willing. Willingness is the key to making sacrifice and to all the fruit that comes from that sacrifice. I stop at an overlook and cried out to Father, “Lord, I cannot be willing on my own, Holy Spirit help me to be willing, to yield my will to your will, even when it means making sacrifices.”
 
   Suddenly, the of Wind of the Spirit is flowing around me and lifting me up.

Third Level Blessing

By Richard L. Spangler
(At the urging of the Holy Spirit, I am reposting this article. I hope it Blesses you.)

 While attending a Ministering Spiritual Gifts Conference I heard a teaching by
Apostle John Burkholder of Buffalo, NY. Apostle Burkholder taught on Luke 6:38,
Give and it will be given to you a good measure, pressed down, shaken together
and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it
will be measured to you.”

             He stated, that he prays this over his offerings regularly. One day as he was                  
praying  this verse, God spoke to him that he was praying it wrong. Apostle John
asked how that he was praying it wrong. The Lord stated it was not enough to pray
for his offering to blessed, but he needed to pray for those who the Lord spoke to:
 to give to him to be blessed, so that they could give.

Then the Lord took it to another level, not only was to pray for blessings for those who were to give to him but also pray for those who were to bless the givers so that they could bless the givers. This is a third level blessing.
This takes blessing others to a whole different level; it takes it beyond simple
addition into multiplication of blessings. God is a God of multiplication. We see at
creation in Genesis how God commanded everything living thing to be fruitful and
multiply (not add).

 This is true in blessings as well as praying for others to be blessed. If we pray in the
matter stated above, our blessings will be multiplied as well.  So as you give your
tithes and offerings, pray for those who are to give to you, to be blessed, and also for
hose who are to bless them to receive a blessing.
Here is a personal example. I prayed over my offering that afternoon and on Sunday
at church. Now my wife has had some physical issues that prevented her from
working for more than two years. (God has been faithful in His provision for us).
  We and her doctors agreed that she should apply for disability. So, she set down and
filled out all the paperwork and submitted it. Her claim was promptly rejected. She
appealed. We were to go to an appeals hearing on the next Tuesday. I was told that I
could say nothing during the hearing, so I just sat there and prayed quietly in the
Spirit. The judge stated that it appeared my wife qualified and that we would be
notified in 7 to 10 days of his decision. We were excited and praised God. It gets
better, our attorney called on Friday, stating that the judge’s decision had already
been given and he ruled in our favor! She stated it would at least two months before
we received any back payments (two years’ worth) and then monthly checks. We
again rejoiced. Then on the following Tuesday, the lawyer called, stating she did not
understand it but the checked was already processed and mailed. We were stunned. On Friday we received a check for two years’ worth of back payments. Praise the
Lord.  We tithed on what we received and I again prayed over it and now waiting to
see what God does now.

            Again I want to encourage you, when you give your tithes and offerings praying for God’s blessing. Then go beyond that praying for others to be blessed so they can bless you. Finally, take it to third level of blessing, praying for those to be blessed that are to bless those who are to bless you. Then, watch and see what God will do.

THE FLOOD AND THE FIRE

This was first published January 1, 2014.I felt the leading of the Holy Spirit republish this Word Today
 

By Richard L Spangler

  I began seeking the Lord for a word for 2014. I heard in my spirit, “A Flood.” Then I asked the Lord, “What He meant by “A flood.” Then there began an unfolding in my spirit.

  Many people talk about the River of God, and about being in the River of God and the joy of being in the river. There are those who dive in, dip their toes in and those who just drink from the river. Many are happy to stay on the banks of the river enjoying the presence of God that comes from the river. They see it as a peaceful, restful and refreshing place. But I heard from the Lord, “Rivers flood” and like natural rivers the River of God floods.

  Rivers when they flood are powerful, overflowing forces that cannot be stopped. Rivers at flood stage sweep everything in their path away. Destroying buildings, trees and rearranging the landscape. A powerful destructive force. So it with the River of God at flood stage.

  The River of God at flood stage, changes both the spiritual and physical landscapes. This flood will sweep away everything temporal (manmade) in the church. It will clean the landscape for what is to come. It will renew and nourish the church. Washing away the chains of religious spirits and traditions.

What is to come is a clear flow of My Spirit to renew and to build up my people. There are those who have been held down but know me, walk with me and know my voice and walk in obedience. These will rise as the flood rises. As it was with the ark of Noah so it will be them. They are in the ark of relationship with me and will cause them to rise in the spirit and in the natural.  

  Then I heard the Lord say; “There will be Fire! Not a little fire that warms and can be controlled. Many say, “They love my fire. They think they know My Fire. But the Fire of Spirit will seem to be a Firestorm, uncontrolled by man.”

 A fire in the natural clears the land removes what is dead and removes the under growth that chokes out life. It also removes those things that are alive but are weak and sick. It prepares the way for the new. So it is in the spirit.

 When the firestorm of My Spirit rolls through my church, it will remove that which is dead, it will cause repentance and remove sin, it will melt away religious chains and traditions. It will prepare my people to receive what I am doing and going to do in the earth. I want a pure people, who know me and hear my voice with clarity and will move will me.

  What is coming will sweep the earth, freeing billions from the chains of sin and dead. It will release my manifest glory upon the earth.

This is year ordinated for this to begin to happen for I will have a pure people and it is my desire for all to repent and know me.

  Then I asked the Lord, “How can there be both a flood and fire at the same time?” I heard the Lord say; “Mount Saint Helens.”

  I researched Mt. Saint Helens and found there was both a fire and a flood. When the mountain exploded there was an unleashing of a firestorm and as the mountain moved it forced water out of Spirit Lake creating a massive flood. Both the fire and flood changed the landscape and cleared the land and today there is new growth everywhere on the mountain.

  There is an explosion in the realm of the spirit. There is an explosion of the Holy Spirit and the effects are roaring down the Mountain of God. Get ready don’t be unprepared for what is coming for it is already on its way and will be here in 2014.

The Unnatural Natural


Richard L. Spangler

   A few years ago I lost three family members in three months, my youngest brother Sidney on December 23, 2009, my brother Jon (a year younger than me) on March 2, 2010 and my mother-in-law Eloise March 21, 2010. To say the least I was reeling under the weight of grief. I cried out to the Lord, “Help, I need something to get me through this.”
   I heard the Lord say, “You are dealing with an unnatural natural.” To that I replied, “Lord I don’t need riddles I need an answer.” (Thank God He loves me and is patience with me.)

 At this point, I heard again, “You are dealing with an unnatural natural.” It was then I began to think about what was being said. Death is a natural part of our physical existence. Everything in the physical universe eventually dies but our spirits are eternal. We live forever.
   This then is the conflict we experience in dealing with the death a love one, a friend or a pet. Our spirits realize that this is not natural; we are not suppose to die, we were created to live forever by God. We were never meant to experience separation from God, our family, and friends and even our pets. Remember, before the fall of man there was no death in the universe so animals were eternal also. When man sinned, he brought death into the entire universe.

 God put eternity in our hearts, Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NKJV)
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He Has put eternity in their hearts,.
   This makes death hard for us to deal with, whether sudden or a prolonged illness before death, it is still unnatural to our spirits.  Our spirits are screaming from deep inside us, “This is not right! This is not supposed to happen! ” Yet it does.The unnatural separation occurs and we are left with a sense of lost and aloneness. It does not matter what people say or what we know, we still feel the unnaturalness of the loss and the grief that goes with it.

 Thank God, that He gives each of us  time to come to terms with this unnatural event.  The Bible says, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3 NKJV).
   Jesus quotes the Prophet Isaiah, “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound” (Luke 4:18 NKJV). 
  God is here with us. He holds hand, wraps us in His loving arms and will even pick us up and carry us through the valley of death. He also lets us know that for the believer this separation is temporary, For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.  For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord(1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 NKJV).
 
   Even in the darkness hours of our lives, there is hope for us that believe in Jesus Christ. We know that the unnatural separation of death is only temporary and we will again be with our love ones and friends, if they have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord and received forgiveness from sin.
   Those that do not know Christ do not have this hope, They only the darkness of confusion and grief caused the unnatural separation of death.  If you want this hope, please pray this prayer: 
   Dear Lord Jesus,
  I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and rose from the grave to give me life. I know You are the only way to God. So now I want to quit disobeying You and start living for You. Please forgive me, change my life and show me how to know You.
  In Jesus' name. Amen. 
 
  Contact me,directly or call the CBN Prayer Center 1-800-759-0700 and talk with a Prayer Partner, let them know you prayed this prayer on this blog and ask them for the New Day. Then, once you know Christ, ask Him to save your family and friends. He will use you to lead them to Him.
