For the word will come to pass...
May 22, 2019
As I reviewed emails, documents, and other items recently, that I keep for such a time as this, I found this email dated August 5, 2004, that I sent to a friend of Laurie and mine who was living in Texas, whom we had known since our days in Fort Lauderdale together in 1988-1990. We had since moved onto Charlotte, North Carolina, while she had moved to the Lone Star State.
I believe in the Lord's move in our lives and His prophetic destinies that He gives each of us. We need to be watching and aware of them.
While we know in part at one time in our life timeline, in due time He reveals His plan that we are to walk in and walk out. Each of us can know His will, and be in the center of it if we choose to seek Him continually, day by day.
Though I never worked at Morningstar, as I had desired and written in the email, Laurie and I were members of the congregation for several years.
Now, since May 1, 2018, Laurie and I are back at Antioch International Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina, on the former Heritage USA/PTL grounds also. On Oct. 1, 2018, I have been on the staff of the congregation which now meets within the church building.
As the Lord had already planned, AIC occupies another of the main buildings built by Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker in the early 1980's - The Barn and Studio (location of the PTL Show).
Christians For Messiah Ministries, founded by Dr. Peter Wyns, bought the property complex on April 24, 2014. I was a member of his board at that time. This June 2019 we will celebrate the 5th year of Antioch International Church's congregation calling the place "home". (Come join us by the way! Details at www.aicchurch.com)
As you read this copy of the email below you can see how the Lord does speak, and moves, in our lives. Be encouraged as He does in yours also, knowingly or unknowingly.
Ahava and shalom,

ANC - All Nations Church with Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda - now is on the Heritage USA land formerly known as "Fort Hope". The dream I wrote about was actually in reference to the land the ANC church bought on the east side of what is now Ballantyne (Charlotte, NC). It was formerly The Lamb's Chapel, a ministry of Harry & Louise Bizzell, off Providence Road West and Community House Road in SE Charlotte. Now it is apartment buildings and single-family homes.
You can read all about these times in history in my books, "The Promise" and "Prophetic Stories - Signs Along the Way". Both on Amazon in paperback and Kindle. See below.

Throughout our lives, God keeps His hand on our shoulders and nudges us on to more than what we could ever realize. I am excited to share how He did it this with me, and am confident mine will be a story you’ll be able to relate to.
As I unveil my story, think back to those times when you knew there was some¬thing more but you just couldn’t put your finger on it. You knew deep down that life wasn’t what the TV sitcoms portrayed it to be. In our souls, there is the hope, the cry for more, that someday questions will be answered and promises fulfilled if we just kept plugging away at what we know to do.
In The Promise, I share my 40-year journey with you and show you that dreams do come true. Though Peter Pan isn’t real, the Lord, the One Who created us, certainly is, and He has a plan in place for each one of us. When you are done reading this story, my prayer is that you too will know more of that good plan and His purpose for you.

We are living in the last days, the times prophesied long ago, right before the Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach returns. Even as He spoke to the prophets of old in Israel, continuing through Jesus’ time on earth, and with the early church, the Lord is fulfilling His promise. His Eternal Word that He would pour out His Spirit on all flesh, and we would prophesy. Prophesy comes in many ways – through the spoken word, signs, dreams, visions, tongues. All are used by the Lord to speak to His people, give them guidance along the way, and show His provision for the plans He has for us.
As we walk along His path chosen for us, He desires to encourage and reveal His plans to us. He most certainly uses His Written Word. He also uses prophetic words. Here are a few that He has given to me. I am continually amazed at how He speaks, how He directs, and the assuring results of His guidance. We need the gifts of the Holy Spirit operating in these times.
As the Bible says, He desires that all would prophesy, in order to assist believers in knowing His will, and speaking to non-believers that we serve an All-Knowing God, Who shows us the way. The gifts of prophesy, seeing signs and wonders, and experiencing His love through His fascinating methods is for all. I hope you are encouraged in seeking Him as you read these stores of how He moved in my life.
