Pieces of the Puzzle - Now Think On This by Steve Martin

Pieces of the Puzzle
Steve Martin



“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,  in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” (Ephesians 2:19-22, NKJV)


Prophetic songs and words are a gift the Lord Jesus shares with His Body of believers, and also non-believers for that matter (1 Corinthians 14). It is another way He speaks what is on His loving heart, calling us to hear His voice, to hear and obey. In addition to His Written Word, the Logos - the Torah, Bible, Scripture – this Rhema is to edify and build up His beloved Church (Iglesia, congregation).

Rob Critchley album from the 1990's
There have been several times when the Lord would use this vessel, me, to bring such a song or word to the gathered during a meeting. I know He is wanting to speak through me when I get this sense of movement in my stomach, almost as if a stirring or bubbling is taking place, to let me know that, yes, He has a word He is wanting me to share, and His Holy Spirit is giving me the “heads up.”

Following that I then I get a word or two. Not a sentence. Not a paragraph. Sometimes a “picture in my mind.” But most often just a word or two, so I have to step out in faith before He will give me any more.

Occasionally, when I am not quite sure if it is His Holy Spirit or not acting upon me, I will sit (or stand, being it typically happens during a worship time) and sometimes “argue” with His Spirit. “Is this You? Is this me? I don’t want to make a fool of myself and get up, stand before the people, and then speak out of my own being.” I may continue this type of conversation back and forth in my brain with something like, “OK, if it is You, then have Chuck (Chuck Smith is the more mature gifted prophetic one at Antioch International Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina where my good wife Laurie and I are members of) come over and ask if I have a word. 

But that generally doesn’t happen. In fact, it never has.

(Chuck had earlier delivered a prophetic word in the worship time that night, which was very encouraging. Listen here: Jesus is with you in the fire.)

Chuck Smith delivering his prophetic word, "Jesus is with you in the fire."

So, on that cold, rainy, early March Friday night, during the AIC Night of Worship time, in The Barn (formerly the Heritage USA/PTL Barn) where the Antioch congregation meets, I carried on this debate with the Lord, for at least five minutes, when I sensed something was coming. Finally, in obedience, I went to Chuck, who was leading the meeting that night, and sitting in the 2nd row to my right, and said I felt I had a word to speak. He asked what it was, and I gave a short sentence or two.

He said, “Let’s go” and we walked to the podium while the worship song continued playing, led by his wife Trista, which was in an instrumental phase.

I motioned to Toni Bogart on the keyboard to keep playing as she had been, flowing beautifully in the Holy Spirit’s leading, while I waited just a short time. Then this is what the Lord spoke through me, as I sang through the mic, “The Spirit of the Lord has come. The Spirit of the Lord has come.” Repeatedly, in harmony with the worship teams’ instruments.

Then He had me share the following, as best as I can remember.

“I am bringing My people together, from all over, to be fit for My purposes. Even as the pieces of the puzzle are placed in the proper location on the table, so too am I bringing this one and that one, from here and from there, to be joined in unison, fitted together, to work alongside each other. I am taking this one, I am taking that one. I am bringing them here at this time. I am working out My plans, and as you see it happening, know that it is Me doing it.”

Once I had finished sharing these words I walked back to my seat. My heart was still racing a bit, as it usually does after giving a prophetic word.


I knew the Lord was doing this. In these recent months, I can physically see Him bringing ones together to complete the puzzle in this place. Some are part of His restoration, those who once walked with Him and His people from decades past. Some are newly saved. All will be used to carry His saving gospel message to the local cities, states, and nations. That is His very heartbeat in this hour.

He is doing it in other places too. Not just here, in this gathering of believers, but everywhere among those willing to be a part of this move of God.

Even so in Israel, we are seeing the return of the Jews making Aliyah (returning, going up) over these past 70 plus years, since the rebirth of the nation in 1948.

He is building the foundation, the walls, the rooms, the entire “house of the Lord”, in order to have a place for the mass numbers of people that will be getting saved from this corrupt world in these days that are certainly coming and even so are already here.

Are you in the right place? If not, are you willing to seek Him, and ask Him to fit your piece of the puzzle, yourself, in the place that He already knows that you, and your family, need to be?

Seek Him. Ask of Him. Let Him know it is in your heart too to be part of what He is doing, and you are willing to do what it takes.

Don't be left out. Get in. After all, you only have one life to live. Live it according to His purpose for you. His heart is so strong to let you know where that is and to fit you, together with others, in the beautiful puzzle He is putting together.

Shalom and ahava (peace and love in Hebrew).

Let It Rain. Let It Pour. Now Think On This by Steve Martin

Let It Rain. Let It Pour.
Steve Martin


“After this, I will pour out my Spirit on all humanity. Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions;” (Joel 3:1, Complete Jewish Bible)


We all love it when the richly colored blue sky is splattered with those puffy white, voluminous clouds; when the golden sun rises faithfully in the morning, bringing forth its warmth and brilliance, and many hours later leaving a most beautiful trail across the painted canvas, at its daily setting in the west.

But then…

It pours rain. Seemingly never-ending rain lately. Day in and day out in many areas. (Or snow, if the temperature is low enough for the precipitation to be changed to that form.)

And what should we be proclaiming?

Let it rain Lord!

Amongst the complainers, and in some cases those who curse, my heart is proclaiming, “Let it rain oh Lord! Let Your Spirit pour down upon us, even as You promised in these last days through Your Jewish prophet Joel centuries ago. Let it rain!”

I want to sing it repeatedly, even as Michael W. Smith did, beginning in 2001. Remember?


Let It Rain Michael W. Smith

Let it rain, let it rain.
Open the floodgates of heaven
Let it rain, let it rain.
Open the floodgates of heaven
Let it rain, let it rain.
Open the floodgates of heaven
Let it rain, let it rain.
Open the floodgates of heaven

The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad
Let the distance shores rejoice
Clouds and thick darkness surround Him
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne

A fire goes before Him and consumes His foes on every side
His lightning lights up the world
The earth sees and trembles
The mountains melt like wax before the Lord

Before the Lord of all the earth
The heavens proclaim His righteousness
And all peoples will see His glory
We want to see Your glory, God!
Do you want to see His glory?
Lift your voices, lift your hands!
Let it rain, let it rain.
Open the floodgates of heaven
Let it rain, let it rain.
Open the floodgates of heaven

Listen again. Be encouraged. Let this be your prayer, rising from deep within your spirit.

Listen to that powerful song here (LET IT RAIN) and let your spirit rejoice. Be glad that rain is coming. Give thanks that He is sending the rain.

We welcome Your reign, Oh Lord!

And even as the Lord’s prophet Joel so rightly prophesied, that as the Lord’s prophetic promises are being brought to fruition, even in His Promised Land, we know that we can trust Him, for He is forever Faithful and True.


“Do not fear, O land, rejoice and be glad,
For the Lord has done great things.
Do not fear, beasts of the field,
For the pastures of the wilderness have turned green,
For the tree has borne its fruit,
The fig tree and the vine have yielded in full.

So rejoice, O sons of Zion,
And be glad in the Lord your God;
For He has given you the early rain for your vindication.
And He has poured down for you the rain,
The early and latter rain as before.

The threshing floors will be full of grain,
And the vats will overflow with the new wine and oil.
"Then I will make up to you for the years
That the swarming locust has eaten,
The creeping locust, the stripping locust and the gnawing locust,
My great army which I sent among you.

"You will have plenty to eat and be satisfied
And praise the name of the Lord your God,
Who has dealt wondrously with you;
Then My people will never be put to shame.

"Thus you will know that I am in the midst of Israel,
And that I am the Lord your God,
And there is no other;
And My people will never be put to shame.

After rain in Jerusalem. (Photo by Steve Martin 2016.)

It will come about after this
That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind;
And your sons and daughters will prophesy,
Your old men will dream dreams,
Your young men will see visions.
"Even on the male and female servants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

"I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth,
Blood, fire and columns of smoke.
"The sun will be turned into darkness
And the moon into blood
Before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes.

"And it will come about that whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Will be delivered;
For on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem
There will be those who escape,
As the Lord has said,
Even among the survivors whom the Lord calls.”
(Joel 2:21-32, NASU)


  
It is coming! He is coming! He is coming back and preparing the way for us and all the nations that will turn to Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, the One and Only Savior of the world.

Do not complain. Do not give in to soulish proclamations that exist among the naysayers.

Be the one who welcomes the rain. Be the one who says even now, “So let it rain, Lord. We need Your reign!”

In all His Glory and Majestic rule, He is the One sending the rain.

For He will reign! Reign, Lord!

Shalom and ahava (peace and love in Hebrew).
