NEWS ABOUT THE RANCH VISION WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR

 WIT’S END RANCH
A PLACE IN FATHER’S HEART

The vision for Wit’s End Ranch was given by Father on February 10, 1980 – 37 years and 8 months ago.  For those of you who have walked these years with us, you know how long Father has assured us that Hab. 2:2-4 would come to pass…”though the vision tarry, wait for it because it will surely come and it will not tarry.”  We have waited and we have tarried…sometimes successfully and sometimes not so much!
We felt two weeks ago that something shifted in the Spirit realm and though we could not see specifics at that time, still in our spirits we knew something was happening…something was moving.  This week things have moved and swiftly.  Several ‘suddenlies’ have occurred and last evening was one of those suddenlies.  About 8pm we had a phone call from our intercessor in Durango and she felt Father was telling her that she and I [Gerri] should go to the ranch tomorrow and pray.
As we arrived at the gate this morning amid all the colors of Fall that God could possibly paint, we spotted a 4 Sale Sign on the property.  We have known for some weeks now that the property was for the third time in foreclosure.  The 4 Sale Sign was a surprise!
We called our Realtor this afternoon and we have made arrangements for a full ranch showing and tour sometime as early as next week. This is the first time in many, many years for us to be back on the property.  It is listed for $3 million dollars and if it does not sell it will go to foreclosure auction on 12/27/17.
If anyone has a few million laying around that they would like to donate to further the work of the Kingdom with this vision, now would be the time!  As always, any gift, large or small, is deeply appreciated!
MOST OF ALL, WE NEED YOUR PRAYERS.  As you can imagine this is both a very exciting time AND a time when we must stay very focused on what Father is saying to us.  May His perfect will be done in His perfect time.
THANK YOU for your support.
Resting in the Father’s Embrace,
Roger and Gerri
YOUR WIT’S END IS THE BEGINNING OF GOD’S POWER.

A Deeper Level of Worship by R. T. Kendall

Did you know there is a much deeper level of worship than what we can do? Admittedly, in response to the Holy Spirit our actions of praying, praising, listening, loving and obeying are part of worship. And there is nothing wrong with that. But there is a much deeper level of worship, one in which we are unable to express ourselves verbally or non-verbally—where we are utterly passive. The highest and most intensive worship takes place when we can do nothing but be amazed, when we are rendered helpless and speechless with wonder and gratitude, when we just sit back and watch God work.

The Paradigm ~ by Jonathan Cahn

Rarely are we impacted by another author like we are by Jonathan Cahn.  This is by far his best work.  We highly recommend it to all those who have set their hearts to be a part of Father’s end time army.  He has masterfully brought together what is happening today with what happened in ancient times allowing us to get a glimpse of a God that has existed throughout the ages.  We highly recommend to you

• Is it possible that there exists a master blueprint that lies behind the events of the modern world?
• Is it possible that this blueprint originated in ancient times and yet reveals the events of the twenty-first century?
• Could this blueprint foretell the rise and fall of modern leaders and governments?
• Could events that took place nearly three thousand years ago now   be determining the course of our world and with it the course of our lives?
• Could this mystery reveal not only the events of the modern world but the timing of those events—revealing the year when an event is to take place and in some cases pinpointing the exact date—and in at least one case even the exact hour?
• Could a template of the ancient Middle East even foretell the outcome of a presidential election?
• Could the ancient figures within the paradigm hold the keys and mysteries behind the rulers and leaders of modern times, with each modern figure having an ancient prototype and each ancient figure having a modern antitype?
• Could it give the exact parameters of time that modern world leaders are allotted to remain on the national and world stage?
• Is it possible that we are all part of the replaying of the mystery?
• And what would happen if we were able to uncover the paradigm and open up the master blueprint?
• What would it reveal to us, or warn us of, concerning our future?
The paradigm touches not only those in power but every life on this planet and every realm of life—from politics to spirituality, economics, history, law, religion, culture, international relations, morality, even the course of nations. Though it has touched or determined the realm of politics, that fact is incidental to its ultimate concern, which is not political but something much larger. It is the revelation of where we have been and where we are and a warning as to where we are heading.
We will see ancient monarchs and modern presidents merging together, the reigns and actions of ancient kings governing the reigns and actions of modern leaders, ancient scandals lying behind modern scandals, and the events of ancient times determining the course, the direction, and the timing of the events of the modern world.
And in all this we will see our days in a new light and from an eternal vantage point.

A Prodigal Comes Home

How Holy Spirit Brought Karen Wheaton’s Prodigal Daughter Back Home
By Larry Sparks for Charisma Magazine

 

This is one of the most powerful miracle testimonies I’ve ever followed. It’s especially powerful to me because I know many of the key parties involved—namely, Karen Wheaton, the mother of the author, Lindsey Wheaton-Doss.

I share this on my blog because I believe Lindsey’s story carries an impartation for hope and supernatural breakthrough. Read her words carefully. I encourage you to pick up her new book, The Way Home.  I believe there’s a powerful anointing on her story. She doesn’t try to clean things up, sanitizing the testimony. It’s real, raw and highly relatable to any reader who: 1) is praying for a family member, spouse or child to come back to the Lord or 2) who is currently in the same place Lindsey was in, under the tyranny of the enemy’s lies and accusations.

Lindsey Doss is the real deal. I wholeheartedly endorse her and her story, once again emphasizing that there is an impartation of breakthrough on this. The key is letting it get into your spirit and compel you to believe that if God could supernaturally transform Lindsey’s life and marriage, He can do the same for you! Continue reading »

You Were Created to Stalk the Darkness ~ Kris Vallotton

There is a lie so demonically destructive that it has literally rewritten the history of the world, and yet this lie is so entrenched in Christian thinking that it’s rarely questioned. In fact, most believers have heard the lie so many times that they actually assume it’s a verse in the Bible. It kind of reminds me of one of my mother’s famous sayings, “God helps those who help themselves.” She repeated it so often that I was shocked when I started following Jesus, read the entire Bible and couldn’t find that verse anywhere. In fact I found the Bible to be quite the opposite of my mother’s mistaken understanding. I discovered that God helps those who can’t help themselves, won’t help themselves and who don’t know how to help themselves!

Unconscious Falsities and the Big Lie

Yet the lie I am referring to is not like my mother’s innocuous quote mistaken for a Bible verse. No! This lie actually undermines the destiny of nations, decommissions the weapons of our warfare, and derails the great commission. One of the simplest ways to get people to believe anything, (be it true or false), is to repeat it often. No one in modern history has ever done this better than Adolf Hitler. Hitler knew that if he confidently repeated his propaganda long enough, the masses would evidently assume it to be true. So persuasive was his lying ideology that he literally convinced an entire nation to genocide their Jewish friends and neighbors for the common good. Six million Jews were murdered at the hands of a compulsive liar! This should serve to remind us of the power of repetition and the utter depth of deception. Continue reading »

How to Get Rid of A Performance Mentality – by Kris Valloton

Do you feel stretched beyond measure and constantly tired? Do you feel like no matter what you do, you just can’t seem to measure up? I believe that performance is a struggle that every generation has had to work through. Why? Because performance is the opposite of a solid identity. It’s built on a religious mindset and man’s attempt to please God through self-effort and striving. Not only that, but it’s a religion of shame, offering no rest for the weary. It demands that we work harder, accomplish more, and perform better to achieve a sense of well-being and worthiness.

I think that every new season and challenge presents us with a question: Will we respond as sons and daughters who trust our heavenly father to take care of us? Or will we take back control and partner with performance? I want to break this down for us today so that we can all be free from performing, which honestly is a really exhausting way to live!

A Love Letter From My King ~ Sheri Rose Shepherd with a note from Gerri

[A note from Gerri:  As the song says, “Into every life some rain must fall, but it won’t rain always.”  Recently I was going through a difficult time.  It seemed that so many things were closing in around me.  Ever felt like that?  Of course you have!  During that time I received an unexpected surprise box with lots and lots of goodies in it from a new friend.  I knew when I opened the box that she had prayed about what to send me.  Every single thing had ‘Love, From Father’ all over it.  One of the very special things she sent was a small devotional book by Sheri Rose Shepherd titled His Princess – Love Letters From Your King.  On an especially difficult day, I picked it up and it opened to the following letter.  I knew that day it was just for me.  I also knew  it is likely that someone out there reading this will find that today it is just for you!  May you be encouraged and blessed!  Love, Gerri]

Don’t get discouraged, My Beloved; pain is a part of life.  But I promise you that I will turn every tear you’ve cried into joy, and I will use your deep pain for a divine purpose.  Don’t try to hide your hurts from Me.  I know everything about you.  You are Mine, My Beloved!  I ‘m the only one who can handle your heart and restore you to health and wholeness again.  I, too, have felt great pain, rejection and anger.  But we can go through every trial together.  Hand in hand I will lead you back to My place of peace and joy after the storm.  The sun will shine on you again, and your heart will be healed.  I promise you that when you go through deep waters of great trouble, I will be with you.  When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown.  When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned.  [Is 43:1-2]  Love, Father

Do You Need a Covering? by Wayne Jacobsen

This is a new chapter from the book Wayne is writing on The Phenomenon of the Drones.

Perhaps no teaching has been used more to subjugate the will of one human to another than that of spiritual covering. Under the guise of spiritual authority, people are actually instructed to obey a religious leader even at the cost of not following Jesus himself.
I don’t hear much talk of it stateside any more, though I know it’s here, but it came up often in my recent trip through South Africa. Spiritual covering is the idea that as a believer you need something or someone above you to protect you from deception and error. Some traditions teach that your local pastor or congregation is your covering. As long as you follow their teachings and submit critical decisions to them, they will keep you from slipping off the narrow way. Others claim they are covered by a denomination or denominational executive, or even the Pope himself.
It assumes God only works through hierarchical leadership structures and if you don’t follow them you are not following Christ. Continue reading »

Soaking With Father – What Is It All About? by Gerri

 “When I am striving, it’s difficult to find love,  but when I am at rest, love finds me!”  Jack Frost  

Soaking goes beyond active participation to one of just receiving from Him.  Father instructs us in His Word to “Be still and know that I am God.” Ps 46:10.  When we are at rest and peace in His presence, we can feel like we are taking a warm soothing bath “soaking” in His Love or being wrapped in a warm silky blanket of love.  We rest from all striving to deserve His acceptance and pleasure and open our heart to commune with Father and be filled with His love.  We seek a place of comfort and receive from the Holy Spirit.  As we soak, Father moves in and soothes the troubles, confusion, and pain in our heart and replaces it with His love.

Each one of us has a need and desire for intimacy and closeness to the Father.  Soaking transports you into the arms of the Father where you can feel safe and secure. In this place, your mind must become quiet and free from the busyness of this world.   Here your heart is open to receive revelation, words of wisdom, directions for your life, pictures, images, visions, answers to questions, and understanding about yourself, others and the future.  We need these times to get refreshed and refilled before we try to minister to others.  We need to minister out of the overflow in our own lives.

This is not some form of transcendental meditation, mind blanking, projection, or other occult practices of the mind.  This is about inviting Father into your heart and to know His love more deeply. You let worship rise up in your heart and give yourself to Him.  Cover yourself in prayer and the blood of Jesus Christ before you begin to ensure that the enemy has no room to interfere.  You will be under His divine protection.

Here is how to begin. Find yourself a quiet, comfortable place to sit or lie down and put on some soft instrumental music, preferably being played by someone who was in the Spirit when it was recorded or at least by Christian musicians.  This music can be found on the web and on YouTube by typing in ‘instrumental Christian soaking music’ in a search. We recommend that you do not use music with lyrics as the lyrics tend to engage your soul [your mind, intellect and emotions]. The goal here is to listen with your spirit, not your soul. Often it will bring healing and rest as you listen. Cast all of your cares and concerns of the day onto Him and begin to focus on His presence and nearness to you.  Allow your body to relax as you fix your attention on His love and goodness.  As we move away from our busy lives, our concerns and worries, the schedules and “to do” lists, our work, and the cares of this world, we can begin to feel Father’s embrace and experience His love.  As we still ourselves, His desires and will are revealed to us and we are refreshed in His presence.  You may fall asleep. Not to worry. It’s OK because the Father can still speak to your spirit when you are asleep and give you dreams and visions!

It usually takes on the average about 10 minutes just to quiet your mind and stop thinking about the day’s events or what is ahead, so plan to soak for at least 30 minutes or more.  Often the Holy Spirit comes in waves, each one taking you deeper into His presence and love, so the longer you soak the better!  If you find your mind wandering or distracted, just gently bring it back to a state of peace and rest returning your focus on Father or Jesus.  If you think of something that needs to be done later, quickly write yourself and note and then return your focus to His love covering you.

 In conclusion, EVERYONE needs to practice the art of soaking with the Father. If you never quiet yourself before Him, it is very difficult for Him to speak to your heart. His primary desire is to spend time with you – alone! Like anything of value from the Lord, soaking will cost you something – your time and effort! Salvation is a free gift but sanctification will cost you everything! Practice makes perfect, so keep at it until you find yourself longing to be in His presence so much that you realize you cannot live without it.
