DESERT MEDITATIONS – No. 2
GOD’S BROKEN CLOCK
BY: JOHN LEWIS
MAY 30, 2008
It has been nearly 1 year since we published Desert Meditations No. 1, we had just shifted from the Pacific Northwest to the West Valley Desert of Phoenix, Arizona area. We thought we had it all planned out of how and most of all “when” the next step for fulfilling our destiny would work out. We had heard a clear word from the Lord and acted upon it. The Father had honored our faith and brought us out by a high and mighty hand for this phase of our transition. More dreams and prophetic words came to confirm what we believed for. I had even prophesied nearly a year before coming here that when we arrive, there would be a record breaking climate change, and it happened (I was expecting cooling weather); but it was a record breaking hottest summer. Ooookk, I am an overcomer and I overcame the heat.
GOD’S CLOCK MUST BE BROKEN
Time and time again we read about God sending his prophets to the desert for lessons that can only be taught by the desert experience. The desert experiences may not always be a literal desert but it will definitely be a fiery trial. “Then was Jesus led up by the Spirit into the wilderness (desert) to be tested of the devil.” Matt. 4: 1 Of course this was before Jesus taught us to pray “lead us not into temptations (testing)”. The Eternal Voice of God will often time lead us into a place of testing. During this time of testing it appears as if God’s clock is broken, or He is just purposely ignoring the time. After all, doesn’t He realize I have things to do, places to go and people to minister to?
After our mental struggling against God and the resounding whining “why’s”, we have these intervals of clarity, realizing that God’s clock does not tick to our marching. Furthermore, it does not tick at all; it is forever stuck at 13 O’clock – NOW. It is always NOW- 13 O’clock, the hour, minute and second that exists outside of time but yet manifest in time and is ALWAYS ON TIME.
I must say I have spent quite a bit of time recently trying to fix God’s broken clock. I have even tried to move the hands forward, then backwards; I went so far as to set the alarm and still nothing happened. I seem to remember an ancient couple that was told to wander around in the desert and given a promise of a son, they also had a problem with God’s Broken Clock. Abraham and Sarah’s biological clock was ticking and the Eternal Clock seemed to have been totally oblivious to the fact that they there were getting older and already beyond the years of procreating. In spite of their tinkering with God’s clock and their biological clock about ready to stop; they produce the promise right on time, 13 O’clock.
A young man by the name of Joseph had a dream that he would one day be a world ruler, his desert experiences got him thrown into the pit and later into the prison. Surely God’s clock must be broken, he must have thought as he sat among criminals. All the wonderful experiences that young men normally would have were sacrificed as the hands of time reminded him day after day that his youth was diminishing and he was not a ruler yet. As God’s clock stayed forever stuck and literally overnight this prisoner became the Prince of Egypt right at the stroke of 13 O’clock.
There’s a funny thing about “facts”. They Are Real!! Facts can be verified under a microscope, the body manifestations of aches and pains can confirm it, the upheaval of emotions can validate it, men and women of science can even prove it. However, “fact” does not necessarily have to become our “truth” or reality. In other words God is not limited to what we know of as time and neither are we.
“I will restore to you the years…” Joel 2:25 In reality there is No Waste and there is No Time. All that appears as wasted time can easily be reconciled at 13 O’clock and that which appears to have been taken will instantly be restored. As the 7th angelic message is revealed within – past Now and future Now is reconciled in present or Presence Now. But how is this? He that exists before time, at the end of time and parallel to time is also called El Olam, God of the Ages of time -projecting Himself through time.
The physical body, your emotional, financial or spiritual state of being can only reflect what may be facts according to the realm of time which is governed by 24 hour days. However, there is the realm of Eternity and it’s not far away. “He has set the world (literal definition = eternity) in there hearts” Eccl. 3 This is what I call 13 O’clock or God’s broken clock that refuses to move pass the eternal Now. Accessing this realm of eternity is really simple. Have you ever been in worship, prayer or meditation and lost track of time? What you thought was 5 minutes was actually 30 minutes or more. What happened? You tapped into eternity that’s within and transcend what we call time, thus, releasing yourself to operate by God’s broken clock that’s forever stuck in the eternal moment.
I am re-learning to embrace what appears as oppositions, challenges, and not always having the need to have prophetic insight of what to do next. By doing so, the hands of what I know of as time and the numbers on the face of life’s clock is fading. God IS a very present help… God/Father/Creator IS. As we tap into the truth of GOD IS; disappointments, depression, and discouragement can no longer hinder us. We are no longer going through time but time goes through us.
The Voice speaking in the desert rarely divulges detail information. It is given in various frames not in sequences. It is like watching or listening to a preview to a coming box office hit movie. All of the exciting parts are portrayed just enough to pique your interest to come and see it. Sometimes the preview will say ”Coming Soon” but not giving a date or time. Now that you are all excited the announcer leaves you hanging and thinking about the exciting images. The film has already been made, it just hasn’t been Released. Can you hear that? The release will take place in a “time” and “season” that will bring more glory to the Father-Creator.
You have been shown the previews of what Spirit has for you, your family, business or ministry. It’s coming soon. But when is soon?? Soon is at 13 O’clock- God’s time on His broken clock. It is the eternal Now, entering into eternity within to see the fulfillment of things without. Your release is always NOW.
SON, IT IS TIME TO PROPHESY AGAIN
For months I have received emails and phone calls from people asking me when will I write and post messages again. It just automatically came out of my mouth, “hopefully by June, but for now I have nothing to say”. Furthermore, it became ok for me not to have a word, exhortation or prophecy. I have not written anything since late October 2007. The Father has allowed the desert winds and heat to beat up on me in the form of extreme personal attacks, false accusations and outright lies being circulated, etc (not complaining). It was good for me and still is. Evidently, there was yet some of the ego that needed to be dethroned and put to death.
A few nights ago while in worship and meditation I heard an awesome word. “Son, it is time to prophesy again. This will be a new beginning for you, count the months of silence…” Immediately my belly was filled with the prophetic as I became drunk in the Holy Ghost and the Spirit began to download the word of the Lord. I began to count on my fingers the months of silence and June was the eight month and He reminded me of why I had been unconsciously speaking about the month of June. The number 8 in relations to June would have a 2-fold meaning for me and my family personally. (1) It would be exactly one year since we took our faith journey. (2) It would be a time of new beginnings for ministry.
As I paced the floor in the Presence of the Almighty, Spirit filled me, I saw the heavens open and the glory of God descending. This glory was in the form of a cloud like substance and it moved across the country and around the world.
I heard the word of the Lord say that the month of JUNE would be the beginning of an outpouring of His Spirit that will be felt in the Church systems and a mighty shaking shall take place and touch off a global move of His Spirit. (And he reminded me of a word I prophesied in Jan. 2007 publication about the coming Revival between 2007-2009). As everything is accelerated, there will be a build up of Glory even for those that meet in their homes and this glory shall increase and the manifestations shall be unbelievable. For those that become worshippers, for those that abandon themselves unto him, for those that are willing to lay aside their agendas- This glory shall become tangible, some shall even taste it and smell it. Out of this glory will come the Supernatural, the effortless works of the Holy Spirit. Creative miracles, healings and unbelievable manifestations of the Holy Ghost, translations and teleportations, clear detail knowledge of unknown events, manifestations of light and sounds from other dimensions.
Churches and leaders that have been praying for a move of God and waiting; know that it is here NOW. There will be such an uproar across the country, it can not be hidden, nor will it be hidden. It shall come to the ears and attention of the media. You are about to see media camped outside of Churches and where people meet just to record the next astounding miracle. You are about to see traditional fundamental churches literally change over night due to this glory that’s being release beginning in JUNE and shall increase throughout the summer months. You are about to see the Church and religious people have a paradigm shift in their theology. I see such a download of revelation knowledge of the kingdom message and power of the Kingdom being released. Those that could not see before will see, those that could not hear will ear, those that could walk will now run and those that could not speak will boldly proclaim the Kingdom of God Is Here. You will see these manifestations in the natural and in the spirit. Malls, Restaurants and public places will be saturated by the Presence through his people accompanied with great signs and miracles.
Another door has been opened in the heavens and even the higher places of consciousness. STEP IN! STEP IN! STEP IN! Be refreshed! Be Renewed! Be Revived ! Be HEALED! Don’t be as those that would stand on the side and question, “what is this” or try to analyze and critique. STEP IN and get carried away. Don’t miss your hour of visitation. Set aside this month for worship, meditation and expect the supernatural”.
(WE EXPECTING TO BE WRITING AND POSTING AGAIN SOON WITH ANSWERS THAT SO MANY HAVE REGARDING THE STRANGE WEATHER, NATURAL DISASTER/MAN MADE DIASTERS WORLD-WIDE).
BLESSINGS, John Lewis
MISSION TO THE CREE NATION and METIS PEOPLE
FOR THOSE IN THE UTTERMOST PART OF THE EARTH, NORTHERN ALBERTA CANADA-OVER 4 HOURS DRIVING BEYOND EDMONTON THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS COME. I WILL BE SPEAKING AT A CAMP MEETING JUNE 27-30 2008 UNDER THE BIG TENT. CREE INDIANS AND OTHER TRIBES WILL BE TRAVELING FROM ACROSS THE NORTHERN REGIONS AND NORTHWEST TERRITORIES. THIS IS NORMALLY ONE OF THE LARGEST GATHERINGS IN THIS REMOTE REGION. IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN 10 YEARS SINCE I WAS IN THAT AREA AMONG MY CREE BRETHREN.
The last time I was there we had a mighty visitations of the Holy Spirit under the Big Tent and in rented Halls with verifiable miracles, healings, deliverance from alcohol and many received the baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire. A First Nations (Indian) Chief’s mother that only spoke Cree language, could not read and around 80 years old received the power of the Holy Ghost and spoke fluent English, sang and prophesied for more than 2 hours in English. I can never forget the woman that had a nervous breakdown, crying uncontrollably, suicidal and her family was taking her to the Psychiatric Hospital to commit her again. She had had breakdowns before and been committed. They stopped by the trailer where my musician from the Blackfoot Nation and I was staying. I clearly remember the woman was crying loud uncontrollably and I didn’t know how to pray. As the Holy Ghost came upon me I begin to shout and demand the tormenting spirits to leave her. Almost instantly she began laughing uncontrollably and shaking under the power and speaking in tongues. The trip to Edmonton Psychiatric Hospital was cancelled and this became a sign for the community since everyone knew her. God had performed a miracle. She and her family followed us around for the next several weeks as we traveled to the many remote villages with revival fires of the Holy Ghost. We are expecting greater things this time in the Cree Nations.
