My hope and prayer are that this letter finds you filled with the knowledge of His will and walking by faith and not by sight. In the previous months, I have written to you concerning the necessity of having our life foundation in Christ built correctly. I emphasized in those letters the necessity of living with an understanding that God is our source and the one who empowers us to love Him with all our heart. It's from receiving God's love on a daily basis that we can be empowered to love Him in the manner He intended. What the Holy Spirit is doing in the earth is unprecedented and having our foundation built correctly is essential if we are to live out His eternal purposes for our lives.
In future months, I hope to continue to explore necessary aspects of our spiritual foundation. However, this month as I leaned into God's heart of what to share with you, I believe He gave me a specific prophetic word to share with you:
"A crucial window is opening for My people in the coming season. It is a window that is opening for My people if they will position themselves correctly. They will receive wisdom as never before, understanding as never before, and the manifestation of promises given long ago. This is a season for receiving understanding to bring the manifestation of promises given long ago. It is a Joshua Chapter One season for many. I have released promises to My people and have given corresponding faith and grace to receive these promises, and it is now critical for My children to seek Me with all their heart soul and mind to hear wisdom, revelation and understanding as it relates to these promises. Do not grow weary in well doing, do not grow faint, and do not give up. Seek Me and the words will come that will give you understanding on how to position yourself. Understand and know that this is a season of unprecedented birthing and advancement in the Kingdom of God. This is a season of the manifestation of promises and desires fulfilled. This is a season of divine advancement, this is a season of overcoming, this is a season of great joy and hope in the house of God."
My prayer is that this word would bring you encouragement and hope in this crucial and wonderful season in the Body of Christ. Thank you once again for standing with this ministry as the backbone for the assignment God has placed on my life. Please be sure to join us later this month at Prophetic Clinic May 17 - 18 at Cornerstone Church in Raleigh, North Carolina. Prophetess Ruth Mangiacapre will be our special guest and Rob Cole will be leading us in worship.
Pursuing the High Call Abner Suarez
My hope is that this letter finds you and your family walking out God’s purpose for your lives. My prayer for you and your family on a regular basis is for “God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives.” (Colossians 1:9) As you stand with the vision God has given this ministry, we stand with you in God’s purpose being
established in your life. I believe we are in one the most pivotal seasons of outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Church history and my desire for you and this ministry is that we would faithfully serve the purposes for our generation well in this glorious season. I want to report that last Wednesday I returned from a 14-day international trip where I ministered in Switzerland and Germany. In both nations, God poured out His Spirit mightily and while it is a little difficult to document all that the Holy Spirit released in this limited space, I want to share with you some of the highlights:
• The Word of the Lord was released
• People testified of receiving physical and inner healing
• The people of God experienced life changing encounters with God
• The saints were activated to walk in a lifestyle of the supernatural
In last month’s letter to you, I shared with you a dream that has played a crucial role in the development of my life in God. One thing that I have learned from this dream, and one that I am continually learning, is that our life in God must be built on the correct foundation. The truths and practices we build our lives upon determine the fruitfulness we will have in God. We must often revisit these truths and allow the Holy Spirit to bring greater understanding of these truths to grow in all that God desires from our individual lives. A key aspect of our foundation in God is living a life of deep fellowship with God. We are personally responsible for stewarding our life of fellowship in God. Last month we highlighted the necessity of knowing and living in God’s love as
a foundation for a lifestyle of fellowship God intended for each us. Many years ago, I made it a life-long goal to become a theologian of the beauty of God. My desire was to know Him and experience His beauty and character as a lifestyle and it made me aware of my deep need for Him and how incredibly weak I am in my own humanity. In my desire to know God, I discovered a wonderful truth. God invites humanity to draw near to Him, but it He who gives me the power to draw near to Him (James 4:8). This is a reality that not only defines our relationship with God, but also every other aspect of the Kingdom of God. Everything that God has ever required of me He has already given me the power to accomplish. Everything, including my relationship with God, first resided with God Himself. God has and will always be the initiator. God is the source that desires and will meet all of my needs.
God is the source of faith to please Him. God is the source of the fruits and gifts of the Spirit that He so jealously desires to operate in my life on a daily basis. As the source of all goodness in my life, God empowers me to make Godly choices that will allow me to bear much fruit. I close by sharing these two verses that are constant sources of mediation in my life. I encourage you to take some time to continually meditate upon these verses as well:
• John 3:27 John answered and said, “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven.
• Romans 11:36 For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.
• 1 John 4:19 New King James Version (NKJV) We love Him because He first loved us.
Thank you once again for your faithful partnership with this ministry. Together we are making a difference!
Seeking first His Kingdom,
My prayer is that this letter finds you encouraged and living from a posture of great hope! I want to share with you a dream I had a number of years ago that has played a very pivotal role in my development. In this particular dream, I dreamed I was back
at Campbell University (the school I attended both as an undergraduate and graduate student). I was walking from my dormitory to the area of campus where the majority of my classes took place during my time as a student. I was so excited to be back on campus because I now knew that I had matured as a disciple since my first time on campus and that I could be much more effective in replicating the ministry of Jesus on my college campus. I submitted this dream for interpretation to a lady who is quite skilled in that area. She interpreted the dream by stating, “The dream is a life principle; you will continually revisit the same subjects over and over again in your life and each time receive fresh insight and revelation.” I knew immediately that she had the word of the Lord concerning the interpretation of this dream and the dream has come to past continually in my life. In the coming months in my letters to you I hope to share some of the subjects that have defined my development as a son of God. One of things that I have learned is that there are certain fundamentals we will never outgrow or completely arrive at as believers. Our life in God can be likened to a
house that God intended to be built with Himself as the solid foundation. The foundation of structure is the basis on which that structure rests. If we do not co- labor with God to build the appropriate foundation our life in God, we will never grow into the fullness of what God intended. An absolutely necessary aspect of the foundation that God intends for us to build is a lifestyle of prayer. A lifestyle of prayer is fulfilling Jesus’ greatest commandment to us to “Love God with all our heart, soul, and mind.” (Matthew 22:36-37) In my weakness, I have endeavored to love God with all of heart, soul, and mind and have my life built and defined by a lifestyle of prayer and communion. A foundational aspect of my fellowship with God is learning to receive His love for me. God’s love is His everlasting gift extended to the humanity He created. I have learned that I will never love God correctly without correctly knowing His love for me.
It is only in the context of knowing His love for me and receiving that love that I can give back to Him what He has first given to me. In my personal communion times with God, I always make sure to spend an intentional extended time receiving the
Father’s love. After all these years, I have come to know that one cannot fully comprehend God’s love for us in one moment or one encounter; perhaps that is one of the reasons God gave us tongues. I have also learned that as I receive His love, I
become aware of areas in my mindset that hinder me from receiving and knowing His love. The following are foundational truths about the love of God that have allowed me to grow continually in the love of God that passes knowledge:
o God loves me unconditionally (Jeremiah 31:3)
o God’s love is extended towards me regardless of my behavior or performance (John 3:16)
o My love for God originates with God Himself (Romans 11:36)
o God’s love for me surpasses intellectual understanding (Ephesians 3:19)
I want to encourage you to continually spend intentional time receiving and meditating on the love God has specifically released to you as a gift. Allow His love to draw you into a lifestyle of deep fellowship and prayer. As you intentionally receive His love, may you live out the Apostle Paul’s command to us to “Pray without ceasing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) My prayer for you and I is that this would
be our greatest season of fellowship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Thank you once again for your continued faithful support of this ministry. Together we are proclaiming and advancing the gospel of the Kingdom. Please continue to send us your praise reports and prayer requests. We stand with you in the purposes of God to be established in you and your families’ lives.
My prayer is that this letter finds you and your family well. A little over a week ago, I returned from Paraguay. It was my first time ministering in this nation which is only about 3 to 6 percent evangelical. I had the honor of ministering at a church in Encarnación, Paraguay (southern region). The Church is well known in the evangelical community because it has grown from 17 members to 300 members in the last seven years primarily through: aggressive door-to-door evangelism, small groups, and prayer. While it’s obvious that much work still needs to be done, the leaders I connected with firmly believe they have begun to see a nation discipled. During my visit we experienced a wonderful outpouring of the Holy Spirit and I want to share some brief highlights of the ministry which took place and some of the fruit I was able to experience.
Worship Night Gospel
As we enter into 2019, I pray this letter finds you expectant of what God has purposed in His heart for you and your family in this season. Every year for the last many years usually beginning in the month of September, God begins sharing with me some of what He is speaking for the next year. This past year God once again began speaking to me prophetically concerning the new year. As we begin this year together, I want to share with you just a portion what the Holy Spirit spoke to me:
"I will accelerate the purposes of My people in the earth as never before, for the last two to three years have been a season of divine positioning for many of My people and many have stood on My word even in the midst of difficulty and storms when they could not see a way ahead. But I say to My people do not grow weary in well doing and do not lose confidence. Continue to stand on My word and stay in My word and keep My word above all else. As 2019 commences, I Myself will be releasing a Spirit of acceleration to my people."
As the Holy Spirit spoke this word to me, one of the concepts that really ministered to me was the word "acceleration". Acceleration is defined as, "to cause faster development, progress or advancement, to increase the speed or velocity." I believe that we are in a season of rapid acceleration in the Body of Christ. The Holy Spirit wants to accelerate His purposes in our lives as never before. I have learned that if we are going to fully receive what the Holy Spirit desires in one season, we must enter into that season with our hearts properly positioned. The following are questions I often explore in my desire to receive what God is releasing in a certain season.
I pray that this letter finds you with a joyful heart living with hopeful expectation of your future in God. This past year as a ministry we have once again witnessed firsthand God's goodness and favor as we have endeavored to follow the voice of the Holy Spirit. It is through your partnership that we have ministered in 22 states and eight nations and hosted six events. Each week hundreds of people have been transformed through hearing the word of the Lord, received healing in their bodies, and experienced life-changing encounters.
I am so very thankful for all that God has given to us, but I am also mindful that God continues to expand the vision of this ministry. I am prayerfully considering how to advance our God-given vision in media, curriculum (encounter school), and how to sustain the message God has given us around the world. I believe that 2019 is a year of rapid expansion for this ministry. I ask that you join your faith with ours that God will continue to grant us the spirit of wisdom and revelation as we endeavor to trust and follow the Holy Spirit's guidance.
This month around the world believers celebrate the birth of our wonderful Savior Jesus Christ! Over the last number of years as I have read the account of the birth of Jesus, I have gained increasing admiration for both Mary and Joseph who were given the monumental assignment of being parents to the Son of God. This month as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, I want to look at characteristics displayed in the life of Mary and Joseph that we would do well to apply to our lives as believers today.
My prayer is that this letter finds you alive and well in the purposes of God for your life. This past month I traveled to minister in Cincinnati, Ohio, Auburn, Alabama, Lynchburg, Virginia, Kitchener, Ontario, Canada and Corona, California. I have been so encouraged by the work of the Holy Spirit taking place during these meetings. Healings and miracles have taken place, the Word of the Lord has been released, and the saints have encountered God in a life-changing manner. Truly the Kingdom of God has been built and expanded in these regions! Your continued partnership allows me to be faithful to the God-ordained mandate upon this ministry.
In the last few months in my letters to you, we have been engaging on the topic of the power and authority God rests in His Church. We have the privilege of being alive in the greatest time in Church history. God Himself has given His Church the authority to shape world history by implementing His agenda for the earth. God’s passion is for nations of the earth to be forever transformed through the glorious outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the good news of the gospel. The choices we make in this season are exceedingly critical; they will define the world that future generations will inherit. It is possible for us to be alive in this season in Church history and not fully inherit God’s purpose for our lives. The following are choices I have made to consciously follow as the foundations of my life in my desire to serve the purposes of God for my generation. If you will notice, the beginning of each statement is prefaced “With God’s help.” While we must make the choice, it is God who gives us the power to make the proper God choices (Romans 11:36).
With God’s help, I will choose to be a theologian of the beauty of God (Psalm 27:4).
With God’s help, I will make the Word of God my highest standard (Matthew 4:4).
With God’s help, I will hear, listen and obey the voice of God (John 10:27).
With God’s help, I will grow in the knowledge of God (2 Peter 3:18).
I want to encourage you that if you have not done so already, make a list of choices that will define the foundations of your life. The proper “God” foundations allow us maximize God’s purpose for our lives. The father holds us responsible for being a steward of the purpose and destiny He has placed on our lives. My prayer for you is that you would be a faithful steward of the purposes of God upon your life and serve your generation as God intended.
Thank you for your continued partnership and support of this ministry. We stand with you in the purposes of God to establish them in you and your families. I also want to once again extend an invitation for you to join us December 6-8, 2018, for the Healing the Land Conference at Global River Church in Wilmington, North Carolina. Our special guests will be Matt Lockett and Will Ford. I also ask that you prayerfully consider sowing a seed toward the vision of the Healing the Land Conference. We estimate the total cost of the conference to be about 32,000 USD. We have enclosed an additional offering envelope for that purpose. Thank you for prayerfully considering this project.
Pursuing Him with all my heart,
About thirteen and half years ago a dear friend of mine began frequently using the nickname "nations" for me. He had a prophetic understanding that I was a man destined to have ministry to the nations of the earth. At the time he began using this nickname, I had yet to ever have a ministry invitation outside of the United States. My friend saw me as God saw me and saw what at times I could not see about myself. In 2010, another dear friend of mine told me I had a call to the nations of the earth and he wanted to help facilitate that call. He invited me to minister at his missions training schools in three different countries. These two dear friends played a pivotal role in helping me step into a significant aspect of my destiny.
By the time you receive this letter, I will have ministered for the first time in the nation of Iceland. Iceland will be the sixth nation that I will have the privilege of ministering in this year. By the end of 2019, I will have ministered in seven nations. This year has truly been a groundbreaking year as I ministered in 11 nations. In 2019, we already have trips planned to Switzerland, Germany, Romania, Moldova, Israel, India, and the Philippines. I am also prayerfully considering other doors that have opened to me.
As each of us endeavor to follow God's purpose for our lives, if we will position ourselves correctly, God will supernaturally bring individuals, families, ministries, and local church communities into our lives that will help to unlock a key aspect of our destiny. Though our individual purposes are distinct, we have been created to be interdependent. Daniel first received counsel and wisdom before answering Arioch, the captain of King Nebuchadnezzar, who had been sent to kill him and his companions. God faithfully gave Daniel supernatural understanding of the king's dream, but it was a group effort in seeking God for the interpretation (Daniel 2:14,17-18). Daniel was one the greatest prophets who ever lived and he lived with an awareness of his need for others.
I believe that we are in a season in the Body of Christ in which it is vital that we learn to properly relate to other members of the Body of Christ as a lifestyle. As we learn to navigate the relationships God has given to us, we will bring unprecedented transformation to the world around us. I believe God has called us together in this season that through our partnership we might bring transformation to the world around us. I believe it is the will of God for this ministry to be one of many ministries that helps to facilitate the reformation of the Church and transformation to nations. I am so thankful for the fruit we have experienced thus far, but I know God desires us to produce much more fruit! My continual prayer for you is that through your partnership with this ministry that we add grace to you and your family's God-given purpose.
Pursuing Him with all my heart,
My prayer is that this letter finds you well and that you are living in expectation concerning your God-given future. Over the last few months in my letters to you, we have discussed the privilege we as believers have to live a lifestyle of dialogue and inquiry. I encourage you to review the previous letters as we have explored some of the principles related to living a lifestyle of inquiry. I began to learn the beauty of a lifestyle of inquiry about 16 years ago. I asked God a very specific question: How do I live a lifestyle (or how does the Church live) in a continual outpouring of the Holy Spirit?
When I asked this question of the Holy Spirit, I heard an immediate answer. “The Church is in need of reformation and is now currently being reformed.” The answer God gave me was simple, but my understanding of the answer to that question has become a life-long pursuit. My lifelong pursuit has been: How is the current reformation of the Church expressed? How can I personally be a part of this reformation? How can I equip others to be full participators in the reformation? God’s Church is at the very foundation of His purpose for the earth. God’s full purpose for the nations of earth will be expressed through the Church, not individuals or individual ministries. I define the Church as God’s governing body in the earth made of up many members and different expressions that is to disciple humanity for life in the Kingdom of God resulting in the transformation of nations. The following are a few key principles that God reveals to identify the power and necessity of the Church of God in the earth.
