Fire in the Shadows

By Jorge Parrott (All Scriptures from NKJV)

‘There’s a whole lotta shakin’ going on’ Jerry Lee Lewis wrote long ago. Italy has been shaking too, both in the natural and spiritual. The Lord often uses shaking to get our attention as we are forced to look beyond our own strength and understanding. In Hebrews 12:26-29 we see “Therefore since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our, God is a consuming fire.” Continue reading

Nuts, Bolts, Wheels and Gears

By Jorge Parrott  (All Scripture references from the AMP Bible)

Many have asked us how we are able to minister to, oversee, serve, and pray for hundreds of our precious missionaries serving in sixty-eight nations. The best one word answer is—faith. The best two words to answer are—faith and love. It is only by the grace given to us by the Lord that we “get” to do this. It is our passion and our life to be living the greatest adventure.

What is also amazing is that our full-time staff in the Missions Department is predominantly made up of volunteers from the U.S. and seven foreign nations.  Imagine working in your calling by faith with no pay and trusting the Lord every step of the way for your family’s care and provision. Some call us nuts, but we really don’t care. Continue reading

Impacting Leaders in the Nations

By Jorge Parrott

One primary objective in missions is building ongoing, deepening relationships with strategic partners sent by the Lord. We need sharp discernment as we seek the Lord in all areas. We are blessed with divine connections and the strategies of the Lord to do our part in fulfilling the Great Commission. The Holy Spirit allows us to “connect the dots” globally for a holy alignment of God’s people and purposes for this season.

We welcome you, our Partners, to engage in God’s heart for the nations by joining us in intercession, ministry teams, Skype prophetic ministry, discipleship, fundraising, and furthering our involvement in Christ’s Mandate for Missions—all to equip and disciple the nations. Rick Joyner asked me two years ago how we had so many volunteers working in missions. I replied, “It is easy, really. We take them into the presence of the Lord to see His heart for the nations.” The simplicity and power of the Gospel emphasizes the importance of building our relationship in the presence of the King.   Continue reading

Report on Historic Meeting with Underground Leaders in China

By Jorge Parrott

The host organizer opened the covert meeting with this security status update, “Security is normal. We are under surveillance.” The security camera in the room was covered for our meeting. They told us not to take pictures and to guard our phone conversations and discussions our entire three days in the undisclosed location in mainland China.

Our dear friend, Eugene Bach, who spoke at our Missions Conference in Moravian Falls, was one of the main organizers of this meeting along with about fifty leaders of the underground churches. Eugene is the American leader of Back to Jerusalem, founded by Brother Yun (also known as The Heavenly Man).

While at this meeting, we met with ministry leaders working in North Korea and Iraq. One of our friends led a team that rescued four hundred Yazidi women raped by ISIS terrorists. The team’s commitment is based on prophetic words the Holy Spirit gave them about their assignments for the cause of Christ. Continue reading

Missions Highlights From 2015

By Jorge Parrott

Are you ready for some good news? We hear enough bad news. The kingdom is advancing. Your prayers and generosity are making an impact in sixty nations. We are blessed to do this. We are seeing fruit that remains as souls are saved, discipled, healed, and delivered. Long ago I heard this saying with regards to missions—“The water is free but the pipes are expensive.” Missions have indeed changed, and our prophetic teams, intercessors, and staff seek divine strategies and strategic alliances as they discern the times.

Two Essentials: Urgency and Rest

By Jorge Parrott

(All Scripture NKJV, except where noted)

Thomas Paine wrote almost two hundred fifty years ago, “These are the times that try men’s souls.” These words are often thought of as the seeds of the American Revolution. Faith, courage, and obedience are necessary to bring restoration to our families and those the Lord calls us to as reconcilers and peace-speakers.

Today the unrest is spreading in many nations around the world. The mass migration of immigrants fleeing from evil is an opportunity to win many to the Lord in spite of the failed policies and vacuum of leadership that is inciting terrorists and thugs. The Good News of Jesus Christ is spreading. Persecution, spiritual warfare, wars, turmoil, and corruption represent the enemy of our soul fighting harder than ever, as if he knows his end is near and Who wins the battle at the end of this age.

Sent To Cross Enemy Lines

By Jorge Parrott
All Scripture references are English Standard Version.

Are we prepared to be hated for the name of Jesus? In John 17:14 we learn, “I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.” Then in John 17:18 we read, “As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.” He is in us and He has sent us to release the good news. In verse 26, Jesus prays to the Father: “I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.”

Our part in fulfilling the Great Commission authorizes and empowers us to disciple the nations and learn to see and love with His heart. This will cost us dearly in terms of our comfort zone, our lukewarm complacency, and our own desires and agenda as our carnal nature is burned up.

Jesus is worth it all. He desires us to have His joy, and He speaks to the Father on our behalf: “But now I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves” (John 17:13). We live this set apart life for His joy, not our own. We know without faith it is impossible to please Him (see Hebrews 11:6).

Shaken or stirred?

By Jorge Parrott

What is not being shaken right now? The reality of the daily media reports would seem unbelievable even just a few years ago. Many are being stirred by the Holy Spirit to fresh boldness and courage, which is sorely lacking in churches, governments, and organizations in every nation. Many are telling us of a fresh conviction of the holy fear of the Lord as never before. Are we sensitive to the Holy Spirit to discern the times? Have we learned how to love and possess the commitment to obey our Captain at all costs?  Continue reading

Going Beyond The Veil In Italy

By Jorge Parrott

The remnant of true disciples of Jesus is thriving in many nations. Italy is a nation that has a long history and importance, even in The Bible and the life of the Apostle Paul. The Lord revealed to us at the recent Prophetic Round Table held in late June to speak to them about their identity as a nation, as God’s people, and as end-time warriors in the Spirit. There is a surprising move occurring in the Spirit-filled churches there.

The influence of the Catholic church is often all we hear about from Italy. Be encouraged there is much unity and passion in the evangelical and protestant churches in Italy to persevere in turbulent times. Recently, over 500,000, including many Catholics, gathered in Rome to protest gay marriage and gender identity tolerance. The identity of young people there is being challenged with societal and secular humanist and gay agenda ilk threatening their God ordained gender identity and the sanctity of marriage.

The World in the Lord’s Eye

By Jorge Parrott

In an open vision during prayer, I saw the earth in the right eye of the Lord. Imagine what He sees and knows. Imagine His heart and passion for us all. He knows the hairs on our heads and yet keeps us from being destroyed by gamma bursts and crashing massive meteors. The Holy Spirit comes when we trust and allow Him to help and guide us through these turbulent times. If we love the Lord and obey Him, He always breaks through. Continue reading
