The Great Awakening - Cal Pierce
As we prepare to move into the coming year, it will be necessary for us to position ourselves with expectation for what God is getting ready to do on the whole earth. Darkness is covering the earth and our light has come, it's time to arise and shine, then the glory of the Lord will appear upon us. (Isaiah 60)
We are moving out of the stirring season into the awakening season. This coming year will be the year God awakens His Bride to know the fullness of Truth that will make her truly free. An awakening is to wake us up to know greater revelation about God’s promises, so that we move in greater power to destroy the enemy’s work and establish God’s Kingdom on the earth.
God will begin to awaken us to the “New Creation Man” in this season. We see this in 2 Corinthians 5:17-18, which says
The revelation we need to know is that the words, new creation, mean proprietorship of the manufacturer. In other words, God manufactures us into a new creation for the purpose of setting up His Kingdom business in us. We are then the occupation of God. This is why He gives us His Holy Spirit and power. Then old things pass away, because it’s not I who lives, but He occupies me to live and do business in me.
If a believer doesn’t have this revelation and isn’t partnering with Holy Spirit, there is a tendency to hold on to the old man (self) and old things, then disrupt their life. We must partner with Holy Spirit who will give us an anointing to know the Truth of the Word, so that we become the vessel of God’s proprietorship. When God awakens the knower of the new creation man, then the new creation man will walk in the fullness of new things that are from heaven that need to arrive on earth. Just know you can do all things through Christ who occupies you.
A Man Experiences the Love of God
I just read your article that was in the Journal of Healing in the November 1, 2018 issue entitled “Original Purpose and Design” by Cathy Hopkins.
It was an interesting issue you shared about somebody coming in who was overweight, and how we are not to look at the situation, but rather at the heart that needs to be healed and loved back to life thru Jesus.
About 12 years ago, when we first started Healing Rooms, a man was standing outside our Rooms and we encouraged him to come in for a blessing. When we brought him in, he sat down and we called down the love of God to saturate him. I received a word that we were to release over him the truth that he was God’s beloved son and He delighted in him.
When I told him this, he howled like a wounded animal! He could be heard all over the area and he said, "You don’t know what I have been into!" Of course, we all knew that it was the very brokenness of the heart of man crying out.
Then the Lord gave me the most profound revelation! He told me to tell him, "I’m not interested in his habits. I’m interested in his heart, because when I have his heart his habits will fall away."
It was truly amazing to watch as the joy of the Lord fell on him. He fell off his chair laughing and laughing and went out leaping, skipping and dancing with joy! Oh, and we never did get to pray for him!
A healed heart falls in love again with God and those habits fall away because of God's great love, joy and delight in us - awakening within us the truth of who we truly are, not as we see ourselves or how others see us, but as God sees us!
Thought I would share this with you after your wonderful article!

Warkworth, New Zealand
At the conference in Spokane, Brian Simmons asked everyone who either had cancer or knew someone close to them who did, to stand up, so I stood up for my sister. At the time, the doctors had given up all hope for her and told her she was rapidly coming to the end of her life. They arranged for a counselor to work with her and her husband. Her immune system was going down and her cancer cell count was increasing. And they had no more chemo treatments to try on her. After Brian prayed for her, she went back to her doctor that next week and her blood count had returned to normal and her immune system had also returned to normal. Praise God!

White as Snow - Jenn Elliott
As a child, I lived in California. Snow wasn’t something I experienced on a regular basis. My grandparents had a cabin at Donner Lake and we spent Christmas there when I was almost 4. It snowed a lot that year, and I was mesmerized by it as it muffled the sounds of the world and yet crunched under my feet. I loved how it sparkled in the sun and gave the land a fresh, clean smell. I loved everything about it - but my favorite thing was how white it was. In my teen and young adult years, I lived in Spokane, WA. By this time, I had lost so much and I lived in a very different world from the innocence of my childhood. When it snowed then, it was covering all the ugliness around me. The debris of my life just seemed to disappear under that blanket of fresh, glistening white snow. It felt like a blanket of peace covering the chaos. No matter where I lived, the snow would make it beautiful!
Shortly after Jesus set me free, He led me to my favorite part of His Word. “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.” Isaiah 1:18. Oh, how precious - that He would make me white as snow! With everything I had done, how could it be so? I asked Him once, “When You look at me, what do You see?” He replied, “I see the Blood”. Isn’t it amazing that through the Blood of Jesus, He makes us white as snow? He doesn’t see our sin, our ugliness…He sees the blood! The Blood washes us and makes us pure and acceptable, welcoming us to come boldly to His throne of grace. His grace is what empowers us to sin no more, but His blood washes away every sin.
In the footnotes of The Book of Isaiah in the Passion Translation, I read that the Hebrew word for “scarlet” is taken from the root word for double (dyed) or “twice” (dipped in Scarlet dye), making it a permanent color. I will tell you that for a lot of my life, I felt permanently stained. But you see, snow is white through and through. There is no part of it that isn’t white. In the natural, the snow covers the ugliness, but in the Spirit, we become white as snow; there are no stains, only the white snow; only the Blood.
Maybe you are a brand new Christian, and you don’t really know how pure He has made you. Or maybe you have been taught a lie, that you ARE a sinner saved by grace. (P.S. Here’s the truth - You were a sinner, then you were saved by Grace, and now you are as pure as snow.) Maybe you haven’t been washed yet, and would like to be pure as snow. Or maybe you are like me; you knew this, but you began looking at yourself through different eyes than His. No matter what your situation may be, this word is for you. You are white as snow, through His blood. All you have to do is believe it. And if you don’t, then ask Him to give you that revelation of truth so that you can begin to walk in all that it means for you.
A Cruel Taskmaster - Deb Killian
(This article was written in late September, thus the reference to fall being in the air. The message of hope in the midst of sorrow is one for all to read, no matter the season!)
Time can be a cruel taskmaster. One hand of the timepiece stretching toward the riches of future joys and one holding tight to the memories of the past. I see it even in the décor of my own home. The Victorian stylishness of days gone by slowly replaced by African treasures, new technology grace our work spaces and beautiful gifts of paintings, quilts and furniture fill our rooms.
In all that shifting of time sits a lovely coleus plant and whimsical giraffe where a birdcage once reigned. I miss Sylvester’s little voice that brought so much joy and laughter to our lives. 36 years ago, he called to me from across a pet store floor. “Hedddddo There”. I fell in love immediately and never once regretted the moment I took him home. Oh he was precocious and ornery and sometimes hard to handle, but we were partners in life. Through the good and bad, happy and sad we stuck together. We moved across states together, mourned the loss of Phil, my first husband, while rejoicing in the delight Roy’s love brought to our home. We came to Christ together, watched Barney and sang every Frank Sinatra song we could remember. He sang with all his little might like he did everything. He was so proud to show off his tricks to everyone that came over. He loved little children and was tender while talking to them. He poo-pooed Alex and gave us the raspberries when he didn’t like something. He was his own personality. And spoiled rotten. But I didn’t care. He was my best friend, the child I never was able to have, my companion, our pride and joy. Roy & I are both grieving our loss.
There were few quiet times in our house!
Now there are way too many. Ouch!
But that ticking hand; moving through seconds, minutes, hours and eventually days, takes away the immensity of pain and reminds me to look up as God so lovingly massages my grief yet again. His Grace is so sufficient, so amazing, so unrelenting. Africa looms ahead just 2 short weeks away. Products still need shipped, missionaries still require resource hunting and fundraising for more still ensues. Fall is in the air and with it comes my favorite season of the year. Crisp weather, ground-soaking rain and the promise of holidays.
This year will not look the same as most of my past life. But that is the mercy of Papa. Joy comes in the morning – a fresh, clean fragrance of what is to be. The air crackles with expectation. There is nothing holding us back. Nothing to keep our feet planted. Eden’s Song will flourish throughout the nations. Our hearts will heal; the place left void from Sylvester’s death will be open to more of God’s goodness and pleasure. Eyes, weary from stress, tears and mourning, will sparkle once again.
The simple chime of another hour passing reminds me there are things to do. Time to move on. Deep breath. Head up. The nations are calling and we are ready!

The Stirring - Cal Pierce
Everywhere we have been this year, we see a stirring happening in God’s people. Whether we are in South America, Europe, Asia or North America, there is an expectancy that something huge is about to be released. This expectancy has invaded us here at the International Offices of Healing Rooms Ministries. We are pressing into what God wants us to do.
We feel that the Third Great Awakening is beginning to happen. Jesus is awakening His bride so she will bring His Kingdom message and work into every nation according to Matthew 24, verse 14. We are in the Isaiah 60 season as darkness is covering the earth and deep darkness the people. He is stirring us to know that our light has come and it’s time to arise and shine, then His glory will fall upon us. We will have such Kingdom brightness that Kings and governments will come to our light. We will truly become the light to the world. They will come to us because we will have the only answer to man’s problems. This awakening will bring in the final harvest as God heals our land.
The stirring is a call from God to His Bride, to awaken from her sleep and humble herself and pray and seek His face, then she will begin to fulfill 2 Chronicles 7:14,
God promises to heal our land if we do our part and humble ourselves, pray and seek His face. He will heal our land by releasing the greatest revival the world has ever seen. The Kingdom will be released with healings, miracles, signs and wonders to take the final harvest. Then the end will come! Are you ready?

Granuloma Annulare, Folliculitis and Neuralgia healed
On August 2,2018 I visited the Spokane Healing Rooms. The purpose for my visit was to get prayer for my son, Humoody. Last year was rocky and I wanted for someone to agree with in prayer for this coming school year. Humoody is in 10th grade at Snohomish High. Suni Terrorists shot him in the face when he was 2 years old. We got him from Iraq when he was 3 years old. There was an ad in the Herald newspaper in December of 2006 for a family to host a child from Iraq who needed medical care. We were the only ones that offered to host him. We know that he was given to us so that he could know Jesus. Humoody was blinded by the gunshot, he has one eye missing and the other is a Prosthetic. He could not breath through his nose and his face was disfigured. After it was confirmed that Humoody would not get his eyesight back, we asked his family in Iraq if we could keep him. We knew he would have no life in Iraq, he would be shunned, mocked, and he would not be able to go to school or marry. He is very smart and personable. Miraculously, his family told us that we could keep him. Muslims never give their children away, especially to Christians.
Because of the trauma Humoody had from being shot and numerous surgeries, he developed PTSD. We were told that during puberty his PTSD might flare up. It did, and our family was devastated. In 9th grade the only thing that brought him joy was playing football for school, wrestling for school, and writing music. Yes, he is totally blind and he does everything that his peers do. Over the last year, I wrote to God regularly and he would speak to me regularly. God is so merciful, and throughout last year God was faithful to me. I claimed that Humoody would start to get better on April 15th. After that date I saw progress, and I knew he was on the road to recovery. As 10th grade was approaching, I decided to release Humoody to God. I should have done it in the beginning, but I had to be in control. After I gave Humoody to God, Humoody got better and better.
When I entered the Healing Rooms on August 2nd, I was ushered into a room were a man and woman were waiting for me. I explained to them what the last year had been like, and that I needed prayer for my son to have a great school year. The man talked to me first and he gave me some words of wisdom that really resonated with my heart. He knew that giving Humoody to God was essential.
As I was ready to leave, the sweet woman asked me if she could pray for my health. I did not tell her the aliments I had. I had Granuloma annulare for 10 years, bumps on my arms and fingers that were painful and not very pretty. I also had Folliculitis, a skin issue that gave me sores all over my scalp. In May, I had an MRI because my shoulder had torn cartilage that was very painful. I was supposed to have surgery to mend my cartilage. I also had Neuralgia, shooting nerve pain to my fingers. I was also supposed to have surgery on the nerves.
On my way home to Snohomish, I realized that I was not having any pain. The next day I discovered that all my bumps on my arms and hands were gone! And all of the sores on my scalp were gone, too! I am still free of all my ailments.
Today Humoody is doing well in school, and all his depression is gone. He is having a great school year! God has a purpose and a plan for Humoody to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Lord baptized Humoody in the Holy Spirit when he was 10.
I would like to thank everyone who volunteers at the Healing Rooms. The Holy Spirit is working miracles.

A Vision of the Church - Larry Pullom
During worship at Blaze, I had a vision in which I saw a lady lying on the floor. I saw two hands come from above and touch her on the chest. The hands were blue and as I looked closer, I could see that there were lightning bolts penetrating her body. After the hands had touched her, she sat up and began dusting off a black dust. The stench from the dust was that of sulfur.
I asked the Lord who the lady was and what was being dusted off of her. He told me the lady was the church and what she was dusting off was all that she had carried that was contrary to the Spirit of God. He had placed His hands on her heart so that it would begin to beat once again after His own heart and would now be able to move with much prayer in the demonstration of His love and unity by the power of His Spirit.
As she finished dusting herself off, she stood up and the stench was gone. She now carried the fragrance of Heaven of love and truth.

We Get To Do This - Deb Killian
This morning I had to battle overwhelming discouragement, sadness and hopelessness! It is so NOT like me that I was able to see it for what it was. The enemy's plot. Watching my 34 year old little yellow-nape amazon named Sylvester, my birdie boy, decline is breaking my heart. At the same time, so is the provoked racial division, the hurricanes, fires and floods, the immaturity of rioters, looters and murderers (in the name of some cause) and all the other negative things jamming our social media and news outlooks.
I have a good friend who has been through 2 near death experiences...a bout with cerebral malaria and recently another disguised as a cancer threat. One of the things she heard God tell her during this last "scare" was "We get to do this." It's become a mantra for me (and many others) as we go through things. I'm so sad to lose my little friend of 36 years, but we get to do this. I'm sorry to see our country being torn apart by a small percentage of people that want to cause division, but we get to do this. I'm hurting for those devastated by fires and storms, but we get to do this. We get to come together. We get to praise God in it all. We get to thwart the devil's plans by rebuking him and gather together in truth. We get to rise up as a church, a body of Christ, and claim what we have been given authority and dominion over.
It is time to take it all back. It is our decision to sit back and watch it all happen around us, or stand up and fight! We can raise our voices against racial divide as we are all one in Christ. Together we can command the storms to stop, terrorism to cease, rioters to stand down. For this reason He says, "Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine (as dawn) upon you and give you light." (Ephesians 5:14) Paul was not talking to sinners but to one of the best churches in the NT. Tozer writes, "Some of the Ephesians were in a somnolent condition, that is, they were morally good but unenlightened. They were religious but unanointed. It is perfectly possible for a good, faithful, loyal church member to be spiritually asleep - being in a spiritual state that parallels natural sleep. When your husband, your wife, your child, your relative, your friend or you go to sleep tonight, the fact that you are unconscious and out of the running for a while is not bothering you. You know that normally you will wake up again. You are not dead, but you are cut off from your environment, all but that which is reflex-breathing and a few other things. Likewise, it is possible to be a Christian, to be in the church and yet be asleep spiritually."
I am proof that everything going on around us, personally, physically and/or spiritually, can be overwhelming and cause us to want to bury our heads for a bit. But I encouraged myself this morning with this reminder and pray it encourages you as well. We get to love, undergird, encourage, embolden and keep each other in the fight.
WE GET TO DO THIS - together with our Triune Godhead and with one another.

God Remembers You - Rana Pullom
Praise God!!!! I feel like it is important to begin this writing with an expression of praise towards our God. God is so faithful and mighty, just and holy!!!! How many times have we counted ourselves out, but God never once changes His mind about who and what we are. The gifts and the callings given to us as we are formed in the womb are without repentance!!! Truly a reason to remember our Savior in this season! Father, we love You. There is no one like You in all the earth.
Recently, while on my way to work, I was listening to the Word of God and was reminded of how remarkable and unfailing is our God. He never strays from His plan for the lives of His people. Generation after generation, stories are the thread that keep family memories alive. Stories are vehicles that carry legacies to the next generation. Remember the way you emotionally respond when you tell of grandma’s hug? In my case it’s the stories of my relationship with my daddy. My children did not have the opportunity to meet him, yet their eyes light up and fill with wonder when I speak of him. My heart connects with theirs and we remember who we are and where we come from. In the same way, the stories of the Bible connect us to a legacy of life and open us up to hear the heart of God.
That morning, the story I was listening to was the about Moses. Most of us have heard the story of Moses and how he was sent to Egypt to free the Israelites and lead them through the wilderness to their promised land. This time, as I was listening to this story, I heard something that I had never heard before. It was surely a Rhema word, a revelation that was fresh to me. God began to whisper to my soul from the very beginning of Moses’ story.
For this writing, I want to start from when Moses was drawn out of the water by Pharaoh’s daughter. She was moved by the Holy Spirit to provide safety for Moses (who was not yet named Moses.) So beautifully orchestrated by the Holy Spirit, Moses was saved by his enemy, sent to live with his mother until he was “grown up” or weaned, and his enemy paid his mother to provide care for her son. Moses was provided safety and provision leading to purpose. He was allowed to stay with his family until he was weaned. It is not 100% clear to me how long Moses was with his birth family, but research indicated that it was between three to five years of age. This is the divine hand of God because, you see, the most important years for development, including identity, is ages 0-5. Do not be deceived, y’all, this was no accident! Moses had the opportunity to learn the ways of his people and to develop a foundation for what would be his core identity for a lifetime. Our God is truly divine in His nature and plans. The story goes on to talk about how Moses was raised in the house of Pharaoh as a prince. According to a book by Kris Valloton, Supernatural Ways of Royalty, this is where Moses learned to walk as a prince with confidence. Moses was moved by the injustice of his people. He must have been so conflicted to be on both sides of the world. On goes the story; Moses fled Egypt, married, had children, and was comfortably living his life. The Bible states that God remembered His covenant with Abraham and took notice of His people … and God remembered Moses. Exodus 2:25
Moses was comfortable minding his own business tending to his sheep when he saw a bush on fire, but it was not burning up. He was curious and in awe, so he decided to take a closer look. When he turned to investigate, God spoke to him. In this moment of curiosity, Moses encountered the living God and he would never be the same. In fact, Moses would become a friend of God. The Bible does not say that Moses knew God.
He was not walking around with his hands lifted high, singing praises, paying tithe, or being a good Christian. He was comfortable and was simply strolling through life. But God saw the pain of His people … and God knew. He remembered the deposit that He had made in Moses. He remembered the promise that He gave to Abraham. He remembered that when Moses was formed in his mother’s womb, when he was drawn up out of the water, He had made a Holy Spirit deposit in him and gave him a purpose that would not be aborted. God encountered Moses on a mountain and gave him a call upon his life. Moses clearly did not want the call and he tried to escape it! But in all His majesty and authority, God said to him, “I am who I am” and sent him on his way with a call that carried an unexpected end.
God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is encountering His people today. He is remembering the deposit made and the provision given when no one could have possibly understood the depth of the call. In our own lives in this season, God is encountering His people and pouring out His Spirit on all flesh. Mothers, when you placed your hand on your womb and asked God to touch your baby, or when you cried out for salvation to come to your wayward children, God heard you. As for you and your house, you will be saved. Fathers, when you struggled to make life work and to bring the pieces together, when everything failed, God saw you. Single parents, when you struggled and thought all was lost, God was with you. Ministers, when you made the choice to serve the living God and walk away from tradition, only to have your peers shun you, God’s hand was on you. He will make you a flame of fire. If God was moved by a rebellious people, a generation of haters and whiners, He will remember you. If God encountered a man in his forties that lived his life separate from Him, He will encounter you. It never ceases to amaze me how a story can become brand new even when we have heard or read it a thousand times. God truly uses the simple things of this life to bring revelation and to provide encounter moments that shift our spiritual DNA.
God told me once that this season is just a season. I initially thought, “Hmmm, not sure that I am excited about that statement.” God did not say much more. However, over time, I have learned that each season is just a season. We must learn how to embrace the season we are in and prepare for an encounter with our Heavenly Father.

Christmas of 2010 was one that I felt would be more of a blur than a sweet memory, but God, in His infinite goodness, would breathe His love upon my life to remind me of what is really important.
Working 12–14 hours a day, traveling to two different cities, shopping, wrapping, baking and attending the family gatherings before Christmas had me in a blender of frenzy. We were leaving for Denver the week before Christmas and with so much activity going on before we even left, I made the decision not to put up my tree that year since we weren’t even going to be there to enjoy it.
One evening, I arrived home late from work, only to find a note taped to my back door. It was from my 16-year-old grandson, Austin. It read, “Dear Gaga, you will find a HUGE surprise waiting for you in the living room. Love, Austin - ps. I just couldn’t let you be a Scrooge this Christmas!”
Laughing all the way, I stepped around the corner to see the gift of all gifts! He had rummaged through my Christmas storage room, pulled out the tree and determined the decoration theme of his choice, as I have two! There before my eyes was the most beautifully decorated tree I could ever hope to see. It wasn’t done the way I would have done it, which was part of the beauty of the gift.
It simply amazed me that this 16-year-old boy would care enough to take the time out of his day to do something so tremendous for his grandmother. My heart was flooded with love and thanksgiving for the heart of this beautiful young man. All the memories we had made together came rushing to the surface in waves of joy, reminding me of how richly blessed I was to be his grandmother. My heart took a picture that night and I knew that it would be etched within forever. Little did I know at the time how very deep that etching would be!
The following September this precious love of my life died in a motocross accident at the young age of seventeen. Three months later, with the chokehold of grief gripping my heart, the Christmas season came rushing upon me whether I was prepared or not, and it was time to bring up the tree. With tears streaming down my cheek, I reached for the first ornament. Immediately, I was struck with the truth that this very ornament had rested in the hands of love just one year before. Suddenly, what had been an ordinary ornament became a treasured symbol of love in my own hand. Thus began a sacred tradition meant just for me. He gave to me his last Christmas gift that year, his gift of love and decorating my tree would never be the same again!
It has been seven years since the night of my sweet surprise and once again, it’s time to bring up the tree. With each ornament I hold, the memory of his love will continue to seep into all the crevices of my heart, overwhelming me with the deepest gratitude for having been blessed with treasures that cannot be bought. I cherish the sacredness of every moment while decorating my tree, for it is a beautiful reflection of the years shared with a most amazing human being who called me “Gaga”.
May you be blessed this Christmas with giving and receiving unexpected treasures that will captivate your heart, treasures that cannot be bought with money, yet hold a priceless value. When the festivities are over and your home is returned to normal, may your heart also be etched with memories made and love shared. For there truly is no greater gift we could give to one another than this!
