Greetings to you all in the Name of Jesus,
I am starting meetings tomorrow, August 7th through Friday, August 9th; these will be evening meetings, 6:30 PM each night, and look forward to a great time with our long time ministry friends, Mike and Carole Angell. Yes, I am preaching for the Angell’s of God!

This has been pretty amazing getting this letter out….had two extensive letters which were erased in three days when I hit the save button…let’s me know the enemy does not want this to get out to people.
These seem to be terrible days of disaster…a lying spirit of confusion has covered the minds of many, and it has produced apathy and a desire to retreat. Useless emotion has replaced reason and offense is mother’s milk in the national arena. Even in our small town, I see aggressive impulse to anger, even on the roads…at the same time, it is amazing to watch people stumble in confusion in the most simple of transactions and interactions.
American Christians have a Cup to drink, a wake-up call, an inexorable pull into the spiritual realities of living in the Last Days. We are camels bowing low to gain entry into the inner workings of the Kingdom that offends our soulish and personal cultural sensibilities. It is the sum of all our fears as independent, self-actualizing Americans: we are not our own and have been bought with a Price, the Blood of Jesus.
Demonic activity is rampant, but so ingrained in our way of life in “modern America” that we lack discernment to the point what we live as if this is the norm for our people. Seducing spirits and doctrines of devils: SELF, SELF, SELF, SELF, SELF….THE WEAK ARE CRUSHED AND THOSE WHO ARE BLINDED TO THE LIGHT BELIEVE THEY HAVE PREVAILED.
The walls of the evil city of Jericho had infants entombed in every inch of the mortar and stone: the inhabits believed their demon gods prospered them and gave them great strength because they murdered their children as sacrifice….the walls just did not fall down, the collapsed into the earth when the people of God shouted. The Jerichoans shouted in their hearts for years, “We are free and strong and rich because we kill our babies!”
God brought down centuries of horrible rebellion in a moment.
We are in those days and facing Home at the same time….what astonishing times these are. LISTEN TO THE DEMONS SCREAMING….NOTHING BUT DEATH AND HATRED AND RIDICULOUS DECISIONS. THE HOWLS WILL INCREASE, ALONG WITH BLOODSHED. THE BLOOD OF THE MARTYRS IS SOON TO BE SHED.
DECISIONS of separation are upon us with the pressure to live in denial…oh the challenges of living in soon coming CULTURE CHANGE. Our enemies live among us, Creation is groaning and about to show us what she can do…the mockery of the high and mighty in this country is about to bring bitter fruit. At the same time, Revival is beginning to sweep across the South.
THE BIG SHOW is about to begin…
Many years ago rivers were navigable in many places in America….dredging barges worked constantly clearing the rivers, widening them, giving them greater depth (environmentalists would stroke out!). Gradually rail replaced most river travel. Then individual vehicles replaced most of the rail system…this is what has happened to our churches and the move of the Holy Spirit…
People don’t go to church anymore, they attend meetings. Nothing must interfere with their individual road trip…it doesn’t matter that the River of God is not reaching into our lives anymore…the dams and rubbish are not from God. We have either built them, allowed them, or dumped rubbish into the constant Flow…
The Fire of God is upon us….THE FIRE OF GOD IS UPON US!
HERE IS WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW IN OUR DOLDRUM ABOUT TO BECOME MIGHTY WIND,
John 3 New King James Version (NKJV)
The New Birth
3 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”
3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born [a]again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”
5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Nicodemus was a ruling Pharisee, whose name meant “victorious people”—he was at the top of the Jewish religion. He admitted that the ruling counsel knew God was with Jesus! He came to Jesus at night for fear of being seen with Him, much like “Christians” are today.
The Church has gone into the closet and sin trumpets in the streets.
Jesus revealed the basics of the Kingdom of God…Nicodemus needed to be born again, he needed to be baptized, and he needed to be filled with the Holy Spirit….
THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO FOCUS ON IN THIS PASSAGE:
John 3:7-8 New King James Version (NKJV)
7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Here is our problem….we want to go to Heaven, but we do not want the Power of Heaven to control us, rule us, flow in us, and pour out of us. WE WANT TO FIT INTO A SYSTEM THAT PUT JESUS ON THE CROSS. HE DID NOT SUFFER AND DIE, NAKED BETWEEN TWO THIEVES WITH HIS GUTS HANGING OUT, SO THAT WE COULD FIT INTO POLITE SOCIETY.
HE DIED TO MAKE US LIKE HIM…what has become of the people who gave up everything to walk in the Fullness of the Holy Spirit, who prophesied and cast out demons in the streets? Where are those who gave themselves to days of intercession and worship, and knowing when they stepped into their public meetings, the Shekinah Glory of God would put them on the floor. Time would cease. Worship would go on involuntarily for hours. PEOPLE WERE TRANSFORMED.
Jesus also died that the Holy Spirit could be poured out….now we despise the Gift, minimize Him, don’t want Him in our services, don’t want to obey Him….
The Passion Translation makes this very plain,
John 3:7-8 The Passion Translation (TPT)
7 “You shouldn’t be amazed by my statement,[a] ‘You must be born from above!’[b] 8 For the Spirit-wind blows as it chooses. You can hear its sound,[c] but you don’t know where it came from or where it’s going. So it is within the hearts of those who are Spirit-born!”
This is not talking about being flighty or believing God changes His Mind every two months about where you are supposed to attend Church with other Believers. We must hunger and thirst for Jesus, and for the Spirit-wind to fill us…our hearts as Spirit-born beings by the Blood of Jesus must be to know Him and to be in His Hands to do whatever He wants, wherever He wants, with whomever He wants.
If we don’t come to order as Spirit-born beings, God will cause the rocks to cry out and raise up a people from the dirt we won’t care to be around, but who will leave us behind as they crave the Spirit-wind to be His people.
Perhaps its time for you to change your direction….to park your car, and walk up to the River. Perhaps you can help clear the fill and tangle of the banks, to make the River deep and wide in your own soul.
This is what you must do and must have in this Present Darkness….Jesus has prepared a table for us in the presence of our enemies.
Perhaps you will jump in….perhaps you will let the Spirit Wind take you wherever He wants you to go.
WHEN THOSE FROM THE HIGHWAYS AND BYWAYS ENTER IN, FULL OF THE SPIRIT-LIFE, DON’T BECOME CASTAWAY.
Ask and you will receive. ITS LATER THAN WE THINK, AND GOD HAS A SURPRIZE ENDING!
YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT WITH GOD….
God bless you all with vision, purpose, dreams, visitations, and visions in Jesus Name,
Vaughn Allen Clark
