Prophetic Word to Steve Martin
From Mordecai Porter
Aug. 11, 2019
Fort Mill, SC
I am grateful for the words of encouragement the Lord speaks to us, whether through His Written Word (logos) or the prophetic word.
Thank You, Lord, for the ones who are faithful to hear and then speak what You want to share. I for one truly appreciate the prophetic gifts You give to men, and the ones who share them.
This was given to me on Sunday, Aug. 11, 2019 before the morning service at Antioch International Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina. I share it to encourage others who believe too.
“When I opened your book (“Be Encouraged”, published July 2019) you showed me you had written 22 books. The Lord said the 25th book would be the book that is going to surprise people. It will be more about Israel than it is now.
This trip to Israel (Sept. 24 – Oct. 4, 2019) will be different than any other time. Your eyes will be opened even wider than they have been before. Signs and wonders will be coming, and they will be coming to you, and other people that are surrounding you. Expect things to happen, but don’t expect things to happen the way you got it planned. You have plans but I have My plans. Just obtain what you hear from Me. The ones that are with you will hear a contradiction of different things. I will speak to you loud and clear. Make sure the directions I send you are where you are supposed to go.
This is a new trip for you, but as many times as you come back that your eyes will be opened and your eyes will be opened more.
I hear the number 12. That you are going to help 12 different people make aliyah. You will have 12 individuals that you will be involved in for that to happen.
Also, some of the other people who are going with you their eyes are going to be opened about Israel in a different way.
Remember one thing. I have opened the door for you to go to Israel more times than you can even imagine. On your next trip you will invite someone who will go. They won’t have enough money to go but whatever they have they are going to give to you and you are going to support the rest of it.
Just remember I have chosen you. You. Not only anybody else but you to do certain tasks. No one can do this task no matter what they say.
This is from the Lord. The prophet standing in front of you has been praying for you for a long while. He’s just decided to now to speak to you to release to you what he has to say.
Before you go to Israel there will be more words spoken over you and spoken over the people that are going with you. You are a guide in one way, but you are a mentor in another. You are a mentor to the one standing in front of you. You have spoken a lot into his life and he really trusted you, so speak into his life no matter what is right or wrong."
I believe. Thank You, Jesus (Yeshua) for Mordecai and his gifts.

Time Is Speeding Up
- Think About It. Again.
by Steve Martin
On Oct. 15, 2015, I wrote this Now Think On This message. The Lord had been speaking to me about how, from our perspective, time seemed to be drastically speeding up. As a matter of fact, it is as He said it would be in the prophet Daniel’s book of the Bible.
Consider that since that time four years ago, we have seen events – both in the natural and spiritual realms – quickly increase as to how fast something is “put out there” and so quickly, rather easily, so accepted by the people in the nations.
No longer is much thought given to what is spoken by anyone, before it is blasted across social media, and accepted as the “gospel truth.”
Again, even as the Bible prophesied that it would.
Read my message again. Time is speeding up. We, as the people of God, must be on His timetable and walk in step with His Holy Spirit.

Time Is Speeding Up
- Now Think On This
by Steve Martin
I sense the Lord is speaking loudly, to those with ears to hear, of His prophetic timetable. Time is speeding up. At least it is as we would experience it, in our natural state of being. He has set in motion from the beginning of time is falling into place, piece by piece, much quicker than what we may have anticipated. If we are not looking to Him we will certainly miss it. When He came the first time, even His own people missed that coming. We must be alert to prepare for His Second Coming.
The watchmen on the wall are seeing it. They are observing the obvious signs in the heavens and witnessing the movement of His Spirit on the earth. They are proclaiming His Word to those who would stop to listen. Without fear of ridicule, obstruction or rejection, from those who would have their own agendas, these watchmen are proclaiming obediently.
The first years of Jesus’ ministry walk on this planet were met severely by the religious, the self-proclaiming righteous ones. We would be naive to expect anything less from these in our days as He prepares for His Second Coming.
Yeshua (Jesus) continues to proceed in completion of this phase which had already been planned for the inhabitants of the earth. From the beginning of creation, God the Father has determined these times. His Only Son Himself proclaimed it in Matthew 24 and Luke 21.
This rapid increase in the fulfillment of prophesied events right before our eyes is because He has set those prophetic signs in sequential order, one after another, as we draw near to His appointed hour. More prophetic words, spoken and recorded long ago by those moved by His Holy Spirit, is being witnessed in our day at an incredible rate. It is time for them to be fulfilled, as written.
He is calling His Bride, the believers consisting of Jews and Gentiles saved in all the nations, to be ready and faithful to join Him in the outlay of His plans. We are to hear and obey and walk with Him in the process.
I hear it. I believe it. It is happening.
If we are to be in tune with His purposes, we must take the needed time to seek His face. It is vital. We must allow His Holy Spirit, Ruach HaKodesh, to open our understanding and see prophecy being fulfilled. That which is to occur in the end times, prophesied centuries ago, is happening now, faster than many would have expected. We cannot miss it this go around as His own people did the first time He came.
“Moreover, dear friends, do not ignore this: with the Lord, one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some people think of slowness; on the contrary, he is patient with you; for it is not his purpose that anyone should be destroyed, but that everyone should turn from his sins. However, the Day of the Lord will come “like a thief.” On that Day the heavens will disappear with a roar, the elements will melt and disintegrate, and the earth and everything in it will be burned up.” (2 Peter 3:8-10 Complete Jewish Bible)
The Lord is pushing forward with His plans and purposes. He wants all that will be saved to come to the knowledge of His Gospel, the Good News. God the Father is getting excited about presenting to His Son, Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, His long-awaited Bride, the Body of Messiah. This is one reason why time, as we know it, is being accelerated without hesitation.
In 2003 I received a prophetic indication of this quickening when the Lord woke me up a few hours after I had gone to bed. Following are some excerpts from my book, “Prophetic Stories – Signs Along the Way” (Amazon $5.99, Martin Lighthouse Publishing, 2014) of that time. It involved me driving over to the former Heritage USA/PTL Network property late at night. The vacated 2000 acres of land was still lying barren and in ruin. During my obedience in action, I received a word from the Lord during that drive. (You can read that whole chapter following this message.)
“On Oct. 21, 2003, I felt the Lord had me leave my home (a weekday night) in southern Pineville, NC, and head into town. He has had me go on these trips before, where I have the sense to get in my vehicle and “go”, and then trust the Holy Spirit to guide me. Sometimes it is early morning. Sometimes late at night. Normally I go to bed at 9 pm, so for me to be up at 11:00 p.m. was not the norm.”
“At 12:05 a.m. I completed the first circular lap of the road that I could drive on. I had weaved past The Barn, with its roof caved in and the interior having been flooded many times by indoor and outdoor waters; past the Upper Room, also left as it was on its last day, back in 1997. Then it was used for crying out to the Lord for His revival and intervention but left alone in utter quietness over these many desolate years. I drove past the stark and empty amphitheater and through the former campground.”
“Again I proclaimed, “Restore the land to Your people!” seven times. I then called the Derek Prince Ministries office at 12:08 a.m. on my cell phone and left a message on my desk phone, just to have confirmation that I was actually doing this. (My personal assistant would check my messages the next day and confirm this.)
Then the Lord gave me further instructions. “Drive around the perimeter six more times, for a total of seven times.” And so I heard and obeyed.”
“As I drove the 3rd time, I continually prayed in tongues, as I had throughout the first two laps. I completed this round at 12:17 a.m., noting that each trip was 2.2 miles in length on my odometer. I also noted, as I wrote on the purple 3” x 6” paper sheets I had available to scribble on, that the Lord spoke again to “Speed up” when I took the next lap. He said He was “Speeding up His timetable.”
Often the Lord will use signs to help in our spiritual understanding. In this instance, He was giving me an understood picture of what He was already doing on the earth.
Prophetic proclamations made by the prophets Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, and others have always pointed to this end-time when the rapid fulfillment of the Lord’s time table would begin to occur. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, with acute accuracy they prophesied of the Messiah’s first coming, that of the Suffering Servant and the Lamb of God. Those words were completely fulfilled by Yeshua (Jesus).
These appointed men of God also prophesied of what would take place before His return. I believe we will be the ones to see those words fulfilled, and see Him when He comes again, riding triumphantly on His white horse, leading the armies of the heavens. This time the world will see Him clearly as the Lion of Judah. They will have their smartphones tuned into the news channel.
The key prophetic proclamation, that launched this end time table, was written in Scripture and fulfilled on May 14, 1948. That was when the nation of Israel was born in a single day.
“Whoever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Is a country born in one day? Is a nation brought forth all at once? For as soon as Tziyon (Zion) went into labor, she brought forth her children.” Isaiah 66:8 Complete Jewish Bible
The Jews had been brought back to their rightful land supernaturally. The prophetic clock began to advance in 1948, beginning the final count down to the moment of Yeshua HaMashiach’s (Jesus Christ) Second Coming.
As the Jews were being regathered to their Promised Land, from the many nations where they had been scattered after the fall of the Second Temple in 70 A.D., time after time His protection became a witness to them. Through the centuries, though persecuted almost to non-existence, He has kept a remnant for His Name. In the major wars that followed since 1948, as the surrounding Arab nations sought to continually destroy this infant country, their Messiah rose to their defense. He continues steadfastly to this day in keeping them under His wings.
We are witnessing in our lifetime God’s promises coming to fruition. He is excitedly looking forward to the time when He will present the prepared Bride, the Body of Christ, to His Only Son, Yeshua HaMashiach. It will be another prophetic fulfillment that will bless the Father’s heart.
Time as we know it is speeding up. Hang on for the ride, and be ready. Be continually about the Father’s business, while He takes care of yours.

Heritage USA & the Prophetic Drive
“Then I arose in the night...and went out by night…” (Nehemiah 2:12-13)“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.” (Hebrews 10:23)
On Oct. 21, 2003, I felt the Lord had me leave my home (a weekday night) in southern Pineville, NC, and head into town. He has had me go on these trips before, where I have the sense to get in my vehicle and “go”, and then trust the Holy Spirit to guide me. Sometimes it is early morning. Sometimes late at night. Normally I go to bed at 9 pm, so for me to be up at 11:00 p.m. was not the norm.
After I had headed up Lancaster Hwy. (old Hwy. 521), I made the turn onto Hwy. 51, and headed west. By this time I had the sense that I was being directed to go to the former Heritage USA (PTL) the property, which I had done so many times before. It is literally three miles from our house, as the crow flies. (Or the eagle, if you like real good prophetic symbols!)
As I approached the entrance onto the former land, now known as Regent Park, I wasn’t paying as close attention as I should have, and actually passed the main entrance. When I became aware of missing it, I continued onto the All Nations Church property, which was about two miles or so further east. I drove to its entrance. As I sat in my truck, praying in tongues, I felt the Lord say the building they were wanting to construct over the past three years (since 2001) hadn’t progressed because they were trying to put it in the wrong location on that former Heritage USA Fort Hope land.
I made a call to the ANC office and left a message on the current administrator’s phone, sharing my belief. (He later confirmed that a month earlier the decision had been made by them that the building was to go in the area I had specified in my call.)
I then returned to the other Heritage USA entrance, on Hwy. 160, arriving at 11:58 p.m. After I crossed the railroad tracks onto the main part of the former Christian retreat center, I sensed that I was to drive around the perimeter road. I knew that was permissible. Again interceding in my prayer language, I knew I was imploring the Lord for the land to be put back in the hands of His believers. I had expected to make only one trip around, even as Nehemiah had done when he approached ancient Jerusalem and saw the walls in ruin.
At 12:00 a.m. I had driven to the backside of the property, near what was then called The Studio. I believe it still is. I knew this property well, even in the dark. Because I had invested $3000 in lifetime memberships in 1985 (two for my family and one for a family in Fort Lauderdale, who now actually live in the Charlotte area) I had often “scouted out my land.” To this day I still have a big, 20-pound granite rock that I had “picked up” in 2004, that now sits on the floor in our new “history room” in our house.
Also while on staff at All Nations Church/Mahesh Chavda Ministries, as the administrator, we held several conferences on this property. In fact, little did we know at the time, we held the very last conference on the former PTL grounds before it completely shut down – that being in November 1997, in “The Barn”. The entire place finally closed down at the end of that month. The property had been in disuse since, apart from the Kingsway (NarroWay) Christian outdoor plays in the amphitheater and their dinner theatre in The Studio. (In 2004 MorningStar bought 52 acres of the property, including the former Grand Hotel.)
While I sat in my ’99 Chevy S-10 “pick-‘em-up” truck, praying and interceding, I was instructed by the Lord to proclaim “Return seven times what was stolen!” Maybe even as Nehemiah himself may have spoken as he sat on his horse, looking at the walls under the moonlit sky, seeking the Lord’s command and purpose for Jerusalem. The enemies of the Lord had destroyed that city prior to his days. Now these grounds had also been vacant and falling further into destruction, for over six years now (when I originally wrote this in 2003.). Fallen apart, as if left for dead. Even as Rick Joyner had prophesized in that small blue book he wrote in 1988 on prophetic words.
At 12:05 a.m. I completed the first circular lap of the road that I could drive on. I had weaved past The Barn, with its roof, caved in and the interior having been flooded many times by indoor and outdoor waters; past the Upper Room, also left as it was on its last day, back in 1997. Then it was used for crying out to the Lord for His revival and intervention but left alone in utter quietness over these many desolate years. I drove past the stark and empty amphitheater and through the former campground.
(Sidebar: My dad, Louis Martin, in 1998-1999, helped re-wire the outdoor, half-moon facility of the former home of the Passion Play. My son Ben has now set up a great memorabilia display off Main Street in the Grand Hotel of Heritage International Ministries. Go check it out! Jim Bakker did, and loves it!)
I then made a left turn at the stop sign posted at the edge of the campgrounds and drove past the only burnt evergreen tree stump, located just under the walkway overpass, on the right side of the road.
Back in 1997, I had conducted a Martin family reunion here on these grounds near Charlotte, over the 4th of July weekend. An errant bottle rocket, lit and fired by this writer, didn’t quite perform the projection that I had anticipated and hoped for, landing the fire piece instead of in the top of the evergreen tree. It quickly made a Roman candle out of that once-living creation! (I have my entire Martin family as witnesses too!) With ineffective efforts on our part to put it out, with very little time to do otherwise, it didn’t keep the tree from burning rapidly to within one foot of the ground. For years only the charred stump remained, as a testimony to my unskilled method of shooting off bottle fire rockets. (Sidebar: And as of the last time I checked, it still stands as another memorial, to this very day!)
At that time, knowing that control of this land was heading into a direction that many desired it wouldn’t go, including myself, I spoke under my breath, after all of this extra 4th of July added excitement had leveled off. “Well, if we (believers) can’t have this land, no one will!”
I then turned my six-cylinder around and drove back to the original intersection of the starting point (now known as Regent Blvd. and Starlight), where I stopped momentarily.
Again I proclaimed, “Restore the land to Your people!” seven times. I then called the Derek Prince Ministries office at 12:08 a.m. on my cell phone and left a message on my desk phone, just to have confirmation that I was actually doing this. (My personal assistant would check my messages the next day.)
Then the Lord gave me further instructions. “Drive around the perimeter six more times, for a total of seven times.” And so I heard and obeyed.
At 12:12 a.m. I completed the 2nd encircling of the land, and spoke out to “Restore the widow’s mite!”
As I drove the 3rd time, I continually prayed in tongues, as I had throughout the first two laps. I completed this round at 12:17 a.m., noting that each trip was 2.2 miles in length on my odometer. I also noted, as I wrote on the purple 3” x 6” paper sheets I had available to scribble on, that the Lord spoke again to “Speed up” when I took the next lap. He said He was “Speeding up His timetable.”
The narrow roadway reminded me of a NASCAR road course, and it was no easy task to drive the dark, broken blacktop at 35 - 40 mph. (No speed limit signs were posted! I felt like I could have taken on #24 Jeff Gordon at that time!) J
At 12:23 a.m. I finished the 4th round.
At 12:24 a.m. I started the 5th lap, and completed it at 12:28 a.m.
At 12:29 a.m. I started the 6th lap, and finished it at 12:33 a.m. Each time I grew bolder in my driving. (Yes, I would have beaten Jeff Gordon in this race! But kids, don’t always do what your father does!)
At 12:34 a.m. I started the 7th and final lap, completing the course at 12:38 a.m. I had driven my 4 x 4 at a speed of up to 50 mph on the “straightaway”, which was rather short on the back stretch, which crossed the parking lot, just before passing The Studio on the right.
The total mileage traveled for the seven laps was 15.4 miles on my odometer.
At 12:40 a.m. I again called my office and left a message for my personal assistant, recording what I had just done.
Upon completion of this divinely assigned task, on my way out of this 2000 acre property, I headed towards the other entrance. That would take me by the former World Outreach Center, or commonly known as “The Pyramid”, back in the day. All Nations Church/Mahesh Chavda Ministries had seriously considered leasing this building in 1998, for a church, conference and office facility. I had spoken of this possible commitment to the five Malaysian owners’ administrator of Regent. But to no avail.
(Sidebar: And for the record, I saw Jim Bakker’s famous, so-called “golden bathroom faucets”, on the very top floor of the building. From my observation, they were simply better hardware, which could have been found in Lowes, or anywhere else. Why the big issue made at that time in 1987? Just more lies printed and spoken in the media, as usual.)
At 12:42 a.m. I pulled up in front of the pyramid. I then felt led to run my Chevy truck around the flag pole that was located in front of what was then a Laura Ashley administration office, doing this encirclement seven times. (Remember, I originally wrote this act back in 2003. Being it is now Dec. 2010 that I am sharing this publicly, that makes it just over seven years ago.) I finished at 12:43 a.m., quite dizzy, having driven my good ‘ole girl as fast as I could for those very tight laps.
I arrived back home at 1:04 a.m., knowing that 5:00 a.m. came early. The alarm clocks of Laurie and I had, as usual, been set for that scheduled normal “wake-up” time.
And now back to the future, as history has again shown, the Lord had preserved this land for His purposes. What the enemy had indeed stolen was returned to His people! And I give special heartfelt thanks to Rick Joyner, the past and current Morningstar Fellowship staff, and to so many others who have given of themselves, with long persevering efforts in the natural and spiritual realms, to bring restoration “to these walls.” (Sidebar: Even the Upper Room has been restored too, for prayer and worship times for many.)
May the same restoration be brought forth in Jerusalem, and in the rightful owners of that entire Promised Land of Israel - the Jewish people.
On January 7, 2011 Laurie and I began to lead the new Beit Tikvah (“House of Hope” in Hebrew) Friday night meetings at Antioch International Church (Pastors Peter Wyns and Jesse Enns), located within a stone’s throw of where the King’s Castle was located, since torn down.
In April 2014, Christians For Messiah Ministries (with the main tenant as Antioch International Church) bought the former Heritage USA/PTL Barn, the Studio, the former Heritage Church School building, plus 16 acres of land. Prophetic words and prayers answered!
This special anointed land, with Heritage International Ministries and several others on it, is further fulfillment of the many prophetic words spoken over these past 34 years. Having been undergirded by the prayers of countless aged saints (and some not as fine wined yet), His promises continue to be fulfilled.
The Lord is faithful!
