The 40 Day Journey July thru August 2001
Thus saith the Lord: Stand in the court of the Lord’s house and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the Lord’s house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them: diminish not a word.
Thus begins a journey chosen of the Lord that will revolutionize the world and shake this country. God wants matters of His heart to awaken readers of this book. The most important message in this book and the series to follow is that He is soon to return for a people sanctified unto Himself. The Lord has His hand stretched out to believers for participation in His word and not man’s doctrine. Without regards to who is speaking, God has chosen the vessels from which He will direct His Spirit.
I am merely a messenger continuing to deliver the Words of our Lord which He began with two blind women from England in the early 1920’s many years ago. Their message was written in a book entitled “God Calling” and edited by A. J. Russell. I believe my direction to write this book is very similar to the directions God gave two women in a time they were not expecting God to pour out His Spirit in such a fashion.
“God Calling” and “The 40 Day Journey” are connected to God’s time-line. God delivered a very profound message to the world of healing and deliverance in ”God Calling”. Salvation is only achieved by the word of God and shed blood of Jesus. Many countless days, were spent by The Two Listeners deciding whether or not to release their discoveries to the world. The two women concluded it was impossible to keep such wonderful news of God’s love away from His people.
I picked up a copy of “God Calling” at a garage sale while I was on a 40 day fast. The price was extremely high for this small hand held book and I nearly left it on the table. I made many trips back and forth to the check-out line trying to negotiate the price of the book. I keep trying to get the lady at the garage sale to give me a reduced price on the book but her price was very firm.
I used my greatest bargaining tools to no avail. No matter how I pleaded with the seller she would not lower the price. This book stuck to my hand and I could not put it down. I finally paid $1.00 for a very small book (which was a lot in 2001) and carried “God Calling” to my home. Many weeks went by as this book was window dressing for my bathroom. I had a burning desire to purchase the book but did not read it right away. The book stayed neatly tucked away among other books in my library.
One day as I sat in my bathroom, this book began to call out my name saying read me. When I opened the book to my amazement I could not put it down. I had been praying during the fast for the gift of Prophesy and begging God to speak to me. As I opened this book I felt a rush of wind that I had never experienced before. I know that it was truly God ordained for me to purchase and read this book. This book was a threshing tool and quite necessary for specific deliverance and healing I needed. I believe reading “God Calling” was God’s way for me to truly hear and obey His voice.
My life took a dramatic turn and miraculous things begin to happen. I received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and a romantic love from God that is incomparable to anything on earth. I was going through a divorce at the time and everything around me had stopped moving. It seemed as though God pushed the pause button on the whole earth to come see about me. As I read about the trials of the two blind women I found strength and peace. My faith and trust in the Lord increased dramatically. My eyes began to see green as green. I discovered that I had been just as blind as the two listeners that God spoke to many years ago.
Each day God began to reveal my life as hidden in Him. The more I denied myself healing, courage, peace, and confidence became my portions. Soon I felt new life moving inside me again. God began to reveal His plan for my life. He told me that He trusted me to carry His gospel to the nations and He wanted me to do it through writing. As you can see the call was accepted.
This message is not my message; it is God’s and I am only his messenger. As A. J. Russell’s role was to “The Two Listeners”, I am just the writer. The words spoken are from the throne room of The Most High. My Job has been to take dictation from the Lord and I have written as I understood Him speak. Some things I understood and some I did not but that did not interrupt my writing.
Readers you will have to ask God for revelation and understanding of many things spoken in this book. I believe there is a personal revelation for each reader. Dig deep into His words and find your personal message. He speaks in rhymes and riddles to my amazement. Much of this book may seem to be child’s play. Yet, it extracts wisdom from our minds in the way that a child understands.
II Chronicles 20:20
And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.
God’s prosperity is not mere money but keys to the Kingdom, the mysteries of God, and entrance to His secret chambers. We are in a time to know God or miss Him. There is no prosperity if we cannot find the Holy Spirit through God’s Word. The Holy Spirit guides us to all truths. This book is a book of truths. Believe that the future is now and see His word springing forth to fulfillment.
The Lord’s coming is a door knock away. If you are too busy to come to the door then you may miss this trip. If you miss this trip get ready for hardships and tribulations. I speak to you and pray that you will allow God entrance into your hearts so you will receive revelation and the words from God’s heart. I made a faith exchange because I asked the Lord to change my heart and literally take away my stony heart so that it could reflect His nature and character.
Psalm 37:4, Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
I surrendered and yielded all of me to the Lord. Do not be too busy to read this book as I procrastinated reading “God Calling”. Time that has been will be no more. Do not spare the expense of time it will grieve you, give up time to read this book. The grapes of wrath have come.
And the king arising from the banquet of wine in his wrath went into the palace garden: and Haman stood up to make request for his life to Esther the queen; for he saw that there was evil determined against him by the king.
God is drunk in His fury against sin and wickedness. Hear the word of the Lord as it is pronounced upon the earth. This book is words spoken to me by God while I was on a 40 day fast. During the fast the Lord began to speak to me continually revealing things to come. "The 40 Day Journey" is the first in a series of books. After the fast was complete the Lord continually spoke from August 2001, until this present time. I have two trunks and two computer filled with books of words God is speaking concerning His people.
All books carry a message of God’s love, revelation, revival, and how to experience God’s glory. We all must stand before a blazen alter for purification before God, then and only then will revival come. Revival is not for the sinner. Revival is breathtaking refreshment for believers. Revival’s intent for the church is to exchange a promissory note; which is the written word of God, and in turn receive a manifestation of His promises with interest for waiting.
God is speaking from the deepness of His spirit be very prayerful as you read and ask the Holy Ghost to interpret anything that you do not understand. Pray that America will repent. God is truly angered at His people for walking in disobedience and according to worldly systematic ways. When I completed this book in August of 2001, it was sent straight to the publisher’s office. However, it was sent straight back with a letter stating this book is in a foreign language we do not understand.
God had not given me revelation of many things He spoke just His raw words. I assumed a brilliant scholar would pick up these messages and relate to the world what God spoke. Again, in July 2003, the Lord began speaking in what I termed as very unusual ways, this time I began experiencing deeper revelations and His secret thoughts. God showed the Prophet Amos corruption and things that must be changed two years before he wrote about them. He gave him a vision of things to come and showed him the present picture.
After reading the Book of Amos I began to understand the meaning of “For such a time as this”. God called Amos as a Prophet and began speaking direct revelation to the Prophet. Amos’s call was to pronounce the righteousness of God. He focused on leaders in the religious community. Amos was charged with restoration of holiness and announced God’s judgment on corrupt spiritual leaders. Amos focused primarily on one function. He was a tool sharpened for a special occasion. Amos was a shepherd like David and experienced God in an open atmosphere in a similar fashion.
God saw the Priests as leaders for the nation of Israel, they have been given an unusual opportunity to get to know His will. Therefore, the Lord expects His chosen vessels to live by His highest standard of living. Amos challenged bigamist religious leaders who were spiritual prostitutes. The corrupt priest used their position and prestige to lord over people. Amos was challenged with tearing down contradictory religious traditions and restoring God’s order of spiritual living. God is saying in this hour that He wants religious idols and alters torn down. God’s government is making transitions and the old regime is being moved out. Any and all rebellion coming across God’s wind will face swift destruction. Wickedness in high places has tried to make transition difficult. However, this is the hour of the Lord’s glory, great power and His finest hour.
Solomon was anointed twice (I Kings 1:30-39 and I Chronicles 29:22-23) because David initially did not want to give up the throne. David’s sins prevented him from building God’s temple. David knew about God’s great mercy and tried to strike a bargain to build a place for God’s Ark. David knew that spiritual wealth and power would go to whoever housed the Ark of God. (2 Samuel 6:10-12). David insisted Solomon was too young and inexperienced to build the temple. His jealousy was holding up kingdom purpose so God moved him out of the way.
The covering for the Ark released great power and generated enormous spiritual victories. In this hour and season God desires to release that same captivating power again upon the earth in His people. The temple He wants built now is the Temple of the Holy Ghost housed in an obedient and faithful people. Some religious leaders cling to man-made power which produces no real gain. The Lord wants us to kill the old regime or old spiritual house for a fresh indwelling of His Spirit.
Someone has to die in the fold whether it be sheep or shepherd so that the transition of wealth and power can be passed on. Wealth can be held up in the spirit when the old regime does not want to pass on the baton. When Elijah ascended into heaven, immediately he passed on the baton to Elisha his servant.
There are some dead ghosts sitting on the throne that do not want to experience God’s new move of power. God has spoken that His choice Prophets must began to pray for transition in the spirit. The wealth is caught up in the air in a holding pattern. Pull it down! God says that tradition and legalism are oppressing His people. He also says that these dead ghosts must be removed. They are cavities stinking in His nostrils.
"The 40 Day Journey" is Word I not word 101 for God’s Priest. Pass this course. God is calling His people together for a feast, not as man feast but a holy feast of sacrifice unto Him. He wants money and time sacrificed for the building of His kingdom. Spare no expense in accomplishing God’s mandate. Let this call be clear in your minds and spirits. This is a call and the first Trumpet Blow to Order (not pertaining to the 7 trumpets in Revelation) in the kingdom. The announcement has been made pass it along. Prepare ye the way of the Lord.
Over the past 18 to 19 years I have tried several times to have this book published. I got so disgusted that I just stopped trying. In November of 2019, the Lord spoke it is time to publish the book so again I started looking for publishers and again I felt disgusted. After many years of doing things the natural way I discovered the Lord wanted me to publish this book through a website. I love the wisdom of God in these scripture:
1 Corinthians 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 1Co 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 1Co 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
July 22, 2001 Day 1
God spoke to the Pastor of our congregation at Riverside Church in Bossier City, Louisiana, to lead the congregation into a 40 day fast. He stood before the body to led us in prayer, and then we all began to pray. Each person was in agreement with this word as we knelt before the altar asking God to purge us and reveal His spirit in deeper depths. In our prayers, we asked God to manifest His glory in our presence and from there the journey began.
Our goal focused on seeing how much of Himself God would reveal as we walked in obedience to His will. The church stood in line one by one before the pastor as he anointed our heads with oil asking God to do something supernatural in our lives. Everyone asked God to empty us of ourselves and fill us with His Spirit.
Pastor Lee Jenkins told everyone to pray and ask God how we should fast individually. The church agreed to read specific chapters of scripture everyday during the fast. Each individual sought God for a plan on fasting. My plan was to eat oatmeal for forty days and that I did accomplish. The entire church submitted to the obedient will of God and we left the church that day with great expectations.
July 23, 2001 Day 2
The day was very hot, so hot that I took notice of the heat. A park was near my job so I went there every day to pray during my lunch hour. I would read a portion of the assigned scriptures and then pray. Along with some other things, I prayed the same prayer every day; God please let me hear your voice. Reading six chapters of the New Testament each day during the fast was our sacrifice along with denying the flesh.
Every day I came to the park and sat by the water, I always saw the same two Doves. Every time I tried to approach them, they both flew away. One day as I was reading the 8th chapter of Matthews, my body came under a great physical attack by the enemy. The hit was so hard that I slumped over in the car.
After a while, I was able to raise my head. The Doves that always flew away were the first things I saw when I raise my head. One Dove was standing on the hood of my car while the other stood directly over my head on top of the car. This was the first time I had ever seen these Doves up close because they always flew off if I gave them any attention.
As I watched the Doves in a true state of amazement, I began to feel squeezed or pushed with a thrust into a place of protection. It felt like my body was being pushed away from danger into an area of safety. As suddenly as the Doves appeared, they disappeared in the very same fashion. I began to feel a tingling sensation in my body, and the sickness left my body. I raised my hands to thank God and this began a cycle of miracles in my life.
July 24, 2001 Day 3
And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
To My people the storm is almost gone. Hold on and get ready for a ride. I call unto you My reward is great to all that seek Me. The cattle on a thousand hills are Mine. You have favor among all men. Sit at My right hand My beloved your crown awaits.
July 25, 2001 Day 4
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
You have entered upon a new horizon. Peace will fall upon the city. It is hedged in with My protection. I cover the city with My presence. My presence shall overshadow all evil. I fly to your rescue as the new head of the city a ruling force over a governing body.
