“The men of Issachar, had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…” 1 Chronicles 12:32. I do believe that I have some understanding of the times we live in and what the body of Christ ought to do. 1. It is obvious we are living in the deep darkness of Isaiah 60:1-2. We are in a war between the spirit of anti-Christ and Christ. It is our time to be on the offensive against our enemies, not hunkered down and on the defensive. 2. God is calling the local chur
God has the last word on everything! “God raised him from death and set him on a throne in deep heaven, in charge of running the universe, everything from galaxies to governments, no name and no power exempt from his rule. And not just for the time being, for forever. He is in charge of it all, and has the final word on everything.” Ephesians 1:20-22 MSG I agree with the Word of God. He rules and has the final word. I agree with respected and balanced prophets: Donald J. Trum
On the day of the infamous 9-11, the Holy Spirit gave me three prophetic words: 1. I was born for such a time as this. 2. This was the explosion heard around the world. The wars of the Middle East have begun and will not stop until the Prince of Peace sets His feet upon the Mount of Olives. 3. We have moved into the Day of the Lord. “Sound the trumpet in Jerusalem! Raise the alarm on my holy mountain! Let everyone tremble in fear because the day of the Lord is upon us. 2 It i
For the last thirty years, I have been preaching and sharing the message “God’s Last Call for Intercessors!” The Lord works through the united prayers of His people. We see what He is saying, we seize what He is saying, and we pray what He is saying. We, the body of Christ, have the power to stop every evil scheme of Satan. There are many prophetic people who believe that China is using biological warfare with the virus and that there could be another wave of it. But this is
ENCOURAGEMENT from Rod Aguillard, NRP Founding Father I am sharing a brief prophetic update on the state of our nation and what the church ought to do. The Democrats are clear in their mindset. If we, the people, do not stop them in the November election, they will bring in a socialist revolution. This is why the left is behind the Antifa and BLM violence. Their goal is to stir up enough civil unrest, along with COVID-19, to oust President Trump and usher in socialism. If we

It seems as though the virus is dead in the water. For about three months, we have been on a national shutdown which also shut the doors of most churches in America.
The good news is that during the pestilence, a growing remnant has repented for living in peaceful co-existence with abortion, moral perversion, and the spirit of anti-Christ in politics.
In our repentance, I believe the Lord is going to rescue us from
I realize this is a hard season for a pastor/leader to navigate through the Coronavirus. The left and the news pundits have politicized the virus and are feeding fear into it.
A proper perspective for you to consider: This nasty virus is a sickness crisis for thousands and a financial and fear crisis for millions. But I am assured that God, in a soon day, will speak peace into this fear and virus storm, and the winds will lose their breath! Through it all, the left and the n
It is a cold winter’s night in South Louisiana. I am sitting by a friend writing this letter of encouragement. My friend is the cozy warm fire of my fireplace. In the ministry, there are seasons when we face disappointments and setbacks that discourage us. In those seasons or moments, I must remember that Christianity is the Great Confession. I began my walk by confessing that Jesus is the Christ, and my walk will end with that confession. Each day, my heart and mouth must be
As we are in the Christmas season, I am reminded that, “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us…” Over 2000 years ago, God wrapped himself in human flesh and became man to redeem us. God, in Christ, became the Savior and the Hope of a lost and suffering world. The report of hope: As Jesus began His Galilean ministry, “The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light. And upon those who sat in the region and the shadow of death, light has sprung-up!” Matthew 4:16 We ser
It’s nearly the end of the year. The days turn into months. The months turn into years. And the years quickly turn into decades. Life is short. Let’s make it count for God and others. Many of the churches I travel to would be considered smaller churches; in truth, they are “Hannah” churches. Despite their size, lack of financial provision, facilities that are in need of updates, and people who leave them for greener pastures to join larger churches (often without a grateful g
The storms of life and ministry are certain. “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33. In most storms, there is a clash between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness. If you yield to the hand of God, your breakthrough is certain. Our Lord, Jesus, is the Master of the storm. He has the last word on your storm and setback. God rules! Years a
In the course of ministry, there are going to be several hard places where hope seems to be gone and all victory seems to be lost. You may be there as you are reading this brief letter of encouragement. Over my fifty years of ministry, Mary and I have been through many hard places. Through it all, I have learned that we serve a God who sees, a God who cares, a God who hears, and a God who comes down to deliver and make a way where there seems to be no way. Four words of wisdo
As I write this letter, I am burdened for more than a few NRP pastors and other local churches outside our network. As a former pastor, I am very familiar with all the setbacks and heartbreaks of the ministry. I know what it is to have some of my best church members suddenly leave and knock the wind out of me. There were times when we experienced serious financial fallout and struggled to survive. (I went off salary twice.) But God! In my pain, He did His deepest work in Mary
I have been doing a series on the Ministry of the Holy Spirit as we prepare for the harvest of the ages! The Holy Spirit is the POWER of the Kingdom. “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” (Acts 10:38) We are moving into the day of His power, and His sons and daughters will come forth as the dew of the grass. The Holy Spirit is the VOICE of the
The key to overcoming your flesh (i.e., the flaws and faults of your human nature) is to wait upon the Lord! The key to the supernatural is waiting upon the Lord. “…the soul that quietly waits upon the Lord, from Him comes my salvation…” Psalm 62:1 As you daily wait or commune with the Holy Spirit, · Salvation keeps coming · Forgiveness keeps coming · Joy and peace keep coming · Courage and conviction keep coming · Provision keeps coming · The love of God for others kee
Martin Niemoller was a German Lutheran pastor and theologian who became a leader of a group of clergy who opposed Adolph Hitler and the Nazi regime. His resistance eventually led to his arrest and confinement in several of the infamous Nazi concentration camps. After his release by the Allied troops, he continued his ministry as a leading voice of repentance and reconciliation for the German people following the dark and evil days of WWII. He penned the following words as a w
I am very concerned about the silence from the pulpits in regards to the corruption in the deep state, the Department of Justice, and the United States Congress. I am amazed at the silence in the pulpits with regards to the shedding of innocent blood. “Seven out of ten believers never heard their pastors mention abortion.” (Pew Research) During the Great Revival of 1857, Charles Finney said, “If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our
Following the shock of the New York governor smiling and signing an ominous law of killing unborn children up to birth, the Holy Spirit spoke to me in the early morning hours. I heard a command to stay sweet and lowly. Then I heard a commission to release the judgments of God against the vile corruption in our nation. I also heard a word of the Lord to release revival, coupled with reformation. Therefore, I started a Facebook Prayer Movement with weekly decrees. The following
I would like to encourage you with two vision strategies for 2019. VISION STRATEGY #1 Lead a fervent United Prayer Movement in your local church with an emphasis on revival, coupled with reformation.The prophets are declaring that it’s God’s time for a Great Awakening. However, He must be inquired of to rend the Heavens. He is only coming in awesome power to the local church that is crying out for the glory to fall! VISION STRATEGY #2 Get your leadership team and your discipl
As we enter the Christmas season, let us celebrate our call to know Him and to declare Him to a people living in darkness and the fear of death. Let us remember our call to be holy, to be separated from the secular and sensual, and to be consecrated into the Father’s Heart—that no one should perish. On November 24, the Holy Spirit reminded me of my call to holiness: Think clearly and exercise self-control, looking forward to your gracious salvation when Jesus Christ is reveal
