How David's Small Tent Turned Into A Tabernacle Of Worship! 1 Samuel 17:54

1 Samuel 17:54 After David slew Goliath the scripture says, "David took the head of the Philistine and brought it to Jerusalem, but put his armor in his 'tent'."

As we look at the armor of Goliath, I am persuaded to believe that David had to stretch out his tent a bit to hold it all.

Goliath was believed to be about ten feet tall, so quite a bit of armor was covering his body.1 Samuel 17:5-7. "And Goliath had a bronze helmet on his head ( remember Goliath had a big head ) and wore a coat of mail ( a flexible body armor made of small overlapping metal rings.) This coat weighing 5,000 shekels of bronze is believed to be about 125 lbs. Verse 6. He had a bronze skin armor on his legs and a bronze javelin ( a light spear for throwing ) across his shoulders. 7. And the shaft of his huge spear was like a weaver's beam ( approximately 3 inches in diameter ) with the spear's head weighing 600 shekels or about 15 lbs. And a shield bearer went before him. David probably took the bearer's shield also.

The Trophies Inside David's Tent Created The Atmosphere Of Worship!

 With all of Goliath's armor in David's tent he would never forget what the Lord had done for him and the nation of Israel. What I am about to express is my creative opinion and is not a difinite word from God. But would you stretch your imagination with me to see what else may have been in David's tent causing it to be stretched into a tabernacle of thanksgiving and praise? Besides Goliath's armor, I believe there were other trophies. Memories of the legacy of Israel's past history of crossing that Jordan river overflowing all of it's banks lingered in his tent. ( Joshua 3:7 ) The testimony of those 'stones of remembrance' was commanded by the Lord to be handed down through Israel's generations. ( Joshua 4:7 ) David heard about those 'stones of remembrance' from his father. I believe that is why when David went to face Goliath, he got to thinking, 'I'd better find me some stones." So he went to a brook.
Picking up that first stone, he relived that miracle crossing of Jordan and his faith began to rise. Picking up the second stone, he remembered that bear.That bear was gone except for the bear skin rug. Reaching for the third stone, he remembered that beautiful lion rug on the floor of his tent. In the evening David would often lean back in his 'bear' chair and rub his bare feet over the back of that lion's fur. What came to take him out was so sweet under his feet! Gripping that fourth stone, he remembered, Goliath had a brother with three sons. He thought to himself, "I'd better make that five stones in case the family shows up! And as he picked up that fifth stone, he saw Goliath's name written all over it and a shouting spell broke over him, "I feel a giant killing anointing coming down all over me, Saul, let me go kill him!" It was 'faith gone wild!" I believe the four stones that David didn't have to use were kept in his tent also.
It seems reasonable to believe that David had to keep stretching the curtains of his dwelling place and lengthening his tent stakes to hold all the weapons and trophies the Lord was giving him through his enemies. David's tent became a tabernacle of ongoing praise and worship making him a full-time worshipper, part-time shepherd! Even in times of discouragement, his past victories caused him to 'believe to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living."
The Greatest Trophy In David's Tent
Last but not least, I believe David's biggest trophy in his tent that created such an atmosphere of violent worship was himself. It flowed out of him from knowing he was God's trophy of grace. Even later with David's failure with Bethsheba, knowing he was a great sinner, he knew he had a great saviour!
The Greatest Weapon In David's Armor
'Remembering' was perhaps the most powerful weapon David had as his armor. His remembrance made him a giant killer.
'Remembering' is perhaps a nation's most powerful weapon against her enemies. When a nation remembers her past God given victories, she rises again becoming unstoppable. Even remembering our past tragedies such as 9/11 brings forth a unity and resilence in our nation to overcome our next impossible odds.

Author Reveals Prophetic Stones of Remembrance to Rebuild Future Generations

Remembering is perhaps America's greatest weapon against her enemies. In the face of hurricanes, floods, fires, economic crises and terrorism, God's gift of remembering her past victories has always been her foundation.When America remembers, she rises again becoming unstoppable. Bill Yount in his new book, Prophetic Stones of Remembrance...A Legacy for the End Times, reminds us as individuals as well as nations that it's in remembering how we overcame what appeared to be our epitome of defeat that creates the stones to rebuild our lives and future generations. Going through our most difficult moments in life causes us to pick up stones of wisdom and insight that give us an edge to win as we face the next impossible odds. Bill shares prophetic insights he has experienced from his own struggles that will encourage the faith of many to go the distance in the End Times.

Waves Of Salvation Are Coming In

It was wave after wave after wave. These waves were bringing in the lost. I mean lost, lost! These waves were bringing the lost up out of the lowest places of the earth. It seemed as though the sea was giving up her dead, as though these souls were coming up from the pit itself. There were pornographic stars, mass murderers, witches, many from occult and Eastern religions. Souls that had committed horrendous indescribable crimes. It was as though Hell itself was vomiting up these souls. Hell was letting go of them. The gates of Hell were opening and these souls were being released! These last waves had the power to bring up the very bottom of the ocean.

As these waves kept coming in, the waves of salvation began covering more and more of the shore and coming upon the earth. Like a flood, the Spirit was coming in, lifting His standard upon the earth itself and multitudes were being saved as the waves of salvation continued to literally cover the earth. As these waves increased in magnitude and became humongous tidal waves, the Lord said, "Truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the Glory of the Lord like the waters cover the sea."

Rodeo Angels Are Being Released...'Tis The Season To Ride Broncos And Bulls!'

God's words often have a kairos moment to them and yet the Holy Spirit at times brings a word to our remembrance as though there is another season for it to be accomplished in His people. Especially in a time when so many are facing a season of overcoming the 'agony of defeat' and discouragement. Such is the case I believe with this word that was posted in 2005.

Rodeo Angels Are Being Released...'Tis The Season To Ride Broncos And Bulls!'

Have you ever watched a rodeo where the rider straddles himself onto the wild bull? They are both momentarily held inside close quarters, as the bull furiously dreads the rider's presence on his back. They both anxiously await the rodeo gate to open. The bull's destiny is to throw the rider off and then stomp him to death! The rider's dream is to outride the bull's fury!

In the Spirit I saw a huge rodeo arena as the grandstands were filling up with God's people. Many had come to fulfill their deepest desire for thrills, spills, and adventure by watching someone who was willing to risk their life to overcome what seemed like insurmountable opposition. Dreams and visions of being down on the field themselves had faded long ago by injuries, defeats, and being stomped into the dirt never to feel wild at heart again.

"I Am Shaking The Grandstands To Shake My People Onto The Field Of Their Dreams!"

I then saw the grandstands begin to shake so violently that God's people suddenly knew it was safer down on the field than where they were standing. As the shaking continued there was no place left to stand. It was like a huge altar call as they came running down onto the field of adventure, where miracles and wonders were born.

"It's Time To Grab The Bull By The Horns... It's Time To Get Back On Your Bull That Threw You Off!"

Many in the Body of Christ trembled at the rhema "now" word as a "Rodeo Angel" proclaimed, "It's time to grab the bull by the horns . . . It's time to get back on your bull that threw you off!"

Many who had been thrown off course of their God-given dreams and visions by wild, furious circumstances and situations stomping on them were now seeing and sensing the presence of 'rodeo' angels now with them, strengthening them to do all things through Christ . . . even riding broncos and bulls!

"Fear Not...You Are About To Ride With The One Who Rides A 'White' Horse . . . His Name Is Faithful And True To You!"

I then began to see many in the Body of Christ straddling wild broncos and bulls, fenced in by tight perimeters, but now couldn't wait for their rodeo gate to open. I then heard a Rodeo Angel proclaim, "Hold on, you are in for the ride of your life . . . you will now ride with the One who rides a 'white' horse!"

I then saw this arena filling up with Rodeo Angels and a great cloud of witnesses standing in the grandstands of glory cheering God's people on to overcome great odds that were stacked against them. I sensed one Rodeo Angel saying to another, "Heavenly 'Super Bowls' are coming to earth for God's people. By facing their fears many will overcome the agony of defeat and will accomplish great exploits, as the world fills up the grandstands to watch the Glory of God come upon them."

"Super Bowls of Praise and Worship" will begin to fill arenas and stadiums. I saw angels being sent to cities proclaiming, "Think bigger, your stadiums look like thimbles compared to the glory of the Lord coming upon the earth."

I am reminded the people who get their face on Wheatie boxes often get up one more time than they fall done. Only then are many known as champions.

"I Am Releasing An 'Abraham Lincoln' And 'Daniel Boone' Anointing Upon My People To 'Persevere' And 'Pioneer'.. To Finish The Course!” 2 Timothy 4:7

2 Timothy 4:7 "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."

On my way to a meeting in Somerset, PA, I saw a billboard with a picture of Abraham Lincoln on it. Beside Lincoln's huge picture were written the words: "Failed, failed, failed. And then...Persistence. Pass it on!"

Two weeks later I ministered at a meeting in Morgantown, PA. They put me up in a Bed and Breakfast farmhouse named "Lincoln-Boone" Bed and Breakfast. One of the early owners of the house in 1810 was James Lincoln, the great uncle of Abraham Lincoln.

As I talked to the owner she explained that Abraham Lincoln's great-grandfather married Anna Boone, the cousin of Daniel Boone who was born just down the road near Reading, PA. Daniel Boone was destined to become a man of the wild, an explorer of unmapped spaces. At eighty-five years old, he was laid to rest in Missouri on a bluff above a river and town on a "high, far-seeing place like the ones he always climbed to see the land beyond." She showed me the original deeds of the home kept preserved with Abraham Lincoln's great grandfather's signature written on it.

I knew by staying in this house was a great confirmation of what the Lord wanted to speak and impart to the Body of Christ in that region and beyond. I actually slept next to the Lincoln room that night and sensed the atmospheric anointing that was coming through the walls, floors, and ceilings of this ancient landmark.

An Anointing To 'Persevere' And 'Pioneer'

There is something I cannot get away from that God is confirming in my recent travels. I sense God wants to release and impart, this hour, an "Abraham Lincoln" and "Daniel Boone" anointing into the Body of Christ. An anointing to 'persevere' and 'pioneer' . .  an anointing to finish what God is calling us to do!

Apostle Paul said, "I have run the race, I have fought the good fight of faith and I have finished the course the Lord laid out for me!" ( 2 Timothy 4:7) I sense there are many who know God has called them to do something. Maybe it's a writing project, a ministry, or shaking the world for Christ! You have started out with God, but somehow it's been difficult and utterly impossible for you to seemingly finish what He has called you to do. God wants to release and impart this anointing to you to not only 'persevere' but to 'pioneer', breaking into new territory where you haven't thought was possible to go before! You are going to go as far as God goes with this impartation!

This 'Persevering' Anointing Will Enable You To Break Through And Break Out As That 'Pioneering' Spirit Kicks In To Break Up New Territory And Frontiers Where Only God Knows Where You Are Going!

So new and fresh that the enemy has no clue where God is taking you. He will literally lose track of your address for you will be hidden in the glory of His presence.

I Sense The Lord Saying, "I Will Take Over From Here!"

I sense many are so discouraged that you feel you can no longer even stand up at this point. But I would like for you to stand up one more time to receive from the Lord. I sense the Lord knows we can't go on any further. We have tried and many feel that they maybe have never heard God after all. You have gone as far as you can go. But I hear the Lord saying, "I will take over from here!"

As an act of faith would you take one 'last' stand, as Abraham Lincoln did after many failures and discouragements -- a "one more time" getting back up that took him through to become a great president of the United States. One last stand, like Daniel Boone himself took, and he became famous for pioneering and discovering what was beyond himself, into the unknown, where God knows everything. "Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." Emerson

Would you be willing to ask God to help make you willing? Would you stand up right now where you are and raise your hands to heaven to receive what only God can give and do for us? Can you stand to be blessed?

"Father, you said after having done all . . . to stand! We corporately and individually come to you and stand to receive this 'Lincoln-Boone' anointing and impartation to 'persevere' and 'pioneer' to finish the course You have laid out before us. You are the author and finisher of our faith!"

"We receive it by faith and thank You for it . . . And we will pass it on!"

"We are standing.."

I would like to invite everyone to a special event in the state of Maryland on July 10th, 2011.  The event is titled "Does It Seem Like The Odds Are Being Stacked Against You?" Please pray about this event and come out to join us.  If you would like more information about the event, visit my website below.

Spiritual ‘Chariot Wheels’ Being Ordered For The Last Day Method Of Transportation! Acts 8:39,40

Acts 39,40 "And when they ( Philip and the eunuch ) were come up out of the water, 'the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip,' that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went his way rejoicing. But Philip was found at Azotus and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea."

With the increase of international disasters beginning to take place around the world, there will be urgent missions where individuals will need to get to countries swiftly. These missions will not be dependent upon the future unstable conditions of the airline transportation systems. God is always one step ahead when it comes to spreading the gospel and going into all the world.

In the Spirit, I heard an order of "chariot wheels" being called into the throne room for the last-day method of transportation for emergency mission work around the world. Time will be a critical factor in getting God's people from one place to the next to minister in times of disaster. God will use angels to intervene in many cases, but to actually lift up the full standard against the flood of the enemy along with national catastrophes, He will be sending His people "first class," speedily!

I have heard testimonies where some believers have been praying for a nation and all of a sudden in the Spirit they were caught away and found themselves in that nation ministering to people. Some through dreams, visions and some as though their own body was there! I truly believe we are living in an hour that we need to take the limits off of God and say, "Here am I, Lord; send me anywhere, anyway you want to!"

Spiritual 'Chariots Of Fire'

It's interesting the army tanks in Israel are called Chariots of Fire.

While in Israel, I have seen a demonstration of these tanks on the move. These tanks are able to shoot forth fire out of the end of their cannons into their enemies. Also, they can shoot forth smoke to hide themselves from the enemy, when needed. These tanks are believed to be the most powerful artillery in the world.

The Lord will transport many by spiritual "Chariots of Fire" into enemy territory where people are being held captive by the enemy and natural disasters.

These Chariots will be equipped with the Fire of God and the smoke of His Glory Cloud! They will be used to rescue many from death as their ministers, as flames of fire, preach to thousands with the fire of God on their lips -- as they are hidden from the enemy and disaster by the smoke of His Glory!

Angelic Air And Ground Traffic Controllers

As the earth seems to be going more and more out of control and increases its groaning through earthquakes and bizarre weather patterns, angels will be given charge over God's people in their going out and coming in, as they are being escorted on secret missions. When everything appears to be out of control, God will still be sitting upon the circle of the earth in total control of spreading the gospel! Angels will control air and ground traffic transportation for the missions of God's people.

As many travel and minister in these spiritual "Chariots of Fire," the borders of their mantles will, at times, touch down upon whole nations and regions to redeem and bring forth life out of chaos!

"Swing Low. . . Sweet Chariot . . . Are You Ready For An Upgrade In Your Traveling?"

Dear Friends,

There is such an urgency to pray for each other as brothers and sisters. I am sure you can testify the reason you are still alive today is because others have prayed you through. I will never forget eight years ago when I had an attack against my heart. My name immediately went around the world on websites who knew me as a writer. I have learned the reason the Lord will cause your name to be known to many people is because you will need that many people to pray for you when trouble comes. I heard the voice of the enemy talking about me as the doctors were scurrying around me to save my life. The enemy said to his demons, "There are so many people praying for him, we have to let him go!" The next day in the hospital I was given a heart catheterization and my heart stopped on the table. The doctor jumped my heart back to beat again. Because of your prayers I am still living today. We would like to pray for you and your needs. Please send us your prayer requests so we can pray for each other. "Confess your faults to one another and pray for each other that you may be healed." James 5:16

I will be sharing a special message on a radio program June 7th, 2011. The details on how you can listen are on the homepage of my website below.

"He Has Made Me Fruitful In The Land Of My Affliction" Genesis 41:51

Natural Gas Well
I sense the Spirit saying, "The earth is now ripe for picking! It's coming into it's 'fullness' for harvest." Lands and whole regions of the earth are pulling on God's word for the revealing of the Kingdom. Psalm 24:1 says, "The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof, the world, and they that dwell therein." 'Earth' here literally means land and ground, that which is under one's feet.

Creation Stands On Tiptoes, Straining To See What's Coming Next.  Romans 8:19 Message ( paraphrased )

About a year ago a man called me from another state and asked me to pray for his investment in gas wells in Pennsylvania. He wanted to give more to missions. He happened to mention one of the counties in Pennsylvania where I was born and raised and lived for twenty-seven years. When I told him this, he said since I was born there, he sensed I had authority to pray over that region for God's blessing to be released. This seemed to witness to my spirit so I began to pray for that land to be blessed. As I prayed I was led to use a biblical prayer and song for wells,"Spring up, O Well!" ( Numbers 21:17 ) and I told him to sing this over the land. He would call me every so often and tell me that gas wells were increasing and springing up many places in those counties. Within the past year as I visited home, I noticed gas wells in the farm lands near our home where I had never seen them before.

I Didn't Realize That My Prayers Were About To Bless The Land Of My Birth!
Two weeks ago, I recieved a phone call from my mother. She said every neighbor in the hollow where her home is has been contacted to sign natural gas leases. They were told the hollow could be one of the richest natural gas fields in the county. I am amazed because only God knows the troubles that hollow has seen through the years. Strife, family feuds and injustice convinced me that the ground in that hollow had become cursed when many water wells and springs became stopped up with mud, unable to be used, because of a lack of rain. Everyone in the hollow knows it is only the mercy of God that this same ground could now yield forth such blessings. I believe the Lord is high lighting this scripture for many this hour. "He has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction." ( Genesis 41:51 ) I believe we are to bless the place or land where we have seen trouble and sorrow. Especially the place where we were born. I believe we have a God given birth right as believers that gives us great authority to restore the land of our birth to a place of blessing. I believe in the days to come, it will be said of our place of birth, "This man or woman was born there." ( Psalm 87:4 )

Our afflictions and losses are being redeemed and now turning to our gain. Having won Christ through them, we have authority over our birth place for fruit and blessings to spring up physically and spiritually. What has been working against us, in the land of our affliction, is now going to work for us! The Lord is saying to many this hour, "Don't sell your birth right!" Did you ever wonder why the richest oil deposits on earth are located in the most afflicted nations of the earth? It seems where there is much affliction and trouble on the earth, there is also much potential of spiritual and natural treasures there.

I believe creation itself is now beginning to play a significant role in fulfilling God's purposes in the earth. Joshua prophesied to the sun to stand still to help him win the battle! Ezekiel preached to the four winds to bring God's breath to dead bones! Jeremiah prophesied to the earth..."earth, earth hear the word of the Lord!" Prophesying and singing over the land for natural gas wells to spring up is but one more example of God's provision through blessed land.

God spoke and the worlds were framed by the word of His power! I believe God wants to speak, preach and prophesy not only to the people on the earth through us, but also to His creation itself--this hour--as He is longing to restore all things unto Himself!

Wedding Bells Beginning To Ring Around The World, Bringing Terror To The Real Enemy Of Israel!

I heard Wedding Bells beginning to ring around the world out of every nation-- being amplified in the Spirit. These bells immediately set off an alarm throughout the earth causing principalities, strongholds and wicked spirits in high places to scream out... "This wedding cannot be! We have put a veil over the eyes and minds of His beloved, the Jewish people, so they are blinded from the truth. They will never believe He is their Messiah!"

Then with a sound as if it was the very shofar of God blowing from Jerusalem, I sensed the enemy crying out,"What was that? That sound sounds familiar to the sound we heard when the earth shook and the veil was rent from top to bottom when we thought we killed Him! This sound is bypassing their minds and starting to woo their hearts! What if they start believing in their hearts through the sound of this shofar? Since faith comes by hearing God, we are sunk if this sound coming from Him has even a tiny mustard seed of faith in it!" The backdrop of this wedding appeared to be under a chupah ( a wedding canopy ) with angels holding it high over the Bride and Bridegroom. I sensed the Bridegroom had requested a wedding in His own home town.


I sensed the Lord proclaiming to the angels that were standing at the four corners of the earth..."Begin to bring Me my beloved Bride. She is the one with the veil over her eyes!" Angels began to walk this beloved Bride-to-be down the aisles of every nation. For this wedding his chosen people, the Jews, the apple of His eye, were seemingly capturing His attention first. This spiritual Bride coming forth to this wedding, like a natural bride, had a veil covering her eyes. I sensed she was Jewish. As she came closer I noticed her veil was covering her entire face. I not only could see the spiritual Jewishness of this bride but also the spiritual descendants of the faith of Abraham. Every tribe and tongue could be seen as this Bride was coming out of every nation, religion and tradition, being drawn to her Bridegroom.


As hatred increased against God's chosen people the Jews, wedding bells rang all the more louder as He was wooing His bride to His side. War appeared to be one of the 'wedding attendants' that ushered His bride down to the alter to give herself totally to Him with no distractions or fear. I then sensed the Father whisper to the Bridegroom, His son. "You may now lift the veil and kiss the Bride." This veil was being lifted off of the Jewish people first and then simultaneously multitudes without number from every race, tongue, tribe and nation were being kissed and swept off of their feet as He ushered them into His Bridegroom chamber.

In closing, I sensed that Jesus was urgently declaring, as wedding invitations were being sent out. "I am coming soon for My Bride. Prepare for the Wedding!"

Dear friends,

In this rising economy I am noticing something. God is rising higher! We are still here. I know it's your thoughts and prayers toward us that is giving us victory on every side. The meetings are going great with the Lord's presence going deep inside of hearts awakening us as from the dead. God is highlighting the  seriousness of the moment concerning Israel and all of us. There is a thought I would like to leave with you. "If you knew for sure that this would be your last day on earth, do you think you could forgive your enemies and those who have hurt you? Go ahead and forgive them because none of us know if we will be here tomorrow."

A 'Davidic Anointing' Descending Upon Musical Instruments!

I once heard a testimony where the Holy Ghost was falling upon the people during worship. The preacher testified how the piano player got so filled with the Spirit that she fell off of the piano bench and the piano kept right on playing! No other explanation could be found except, “Jesus knows how to play a piano!”

I believe we are entering into a time and place of worship and praise that we will experience some unusual anointings upon musical instruments that will be played at times, with heavenly fingers! Either through His people, and sometimes without them. Heaven will invade even our so-called Spirit-led worship and we will soon discover that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit just could wait no longer to join us with Heaven shouting….”We’ve come to worship!”

Highly Volatile Worship

I saw a fresh anointing, similar to the anointing that was upon David’s harp, being poured out upon musical instruments. This anointing was highly volatile, able to easily drive demons and strongholds out of whole regions. I sense the Lord speaking to many worship leaders who have become weary in trying to lead others into His presence. “Just worship Me and I will take you and your instruments to a whole new level to descend My throne and to drive out devils!”

Many Wind Instruments Will Sound As Though My Breath Is Blowing Through Them!

It was as though these angels with bowls full of the ‘oil of worship’ were being instructed on which instruments to start pouring upon. This depended upon the players and their intimacy with the Lord. I sensed the Father distinctively describing which instruments would bring the most devastation in the next phase of spiritual warfare...all of them! He was reminding the enemy also of these fatal weapons: “We do drumsticks, keyboards, stringed instruments, shofars and woodwinds. I also use hand clapping, shouting, and feet that dance upon your land mines!"

“These ‘Demon Buster' Musical Instruments Will Not Only Be Found In My House, But In the Streets, Concert Halls and Gutters of the World!"

 It was not really in David’s own territory that the anointing of his harp drove away evil, but in the house of Saul! In the place where the Spirit of the Lord had departed, was where the anointing was the most powerful. For as long as David played on his harp, Saul was free from tormenting spirits. That gives hope to any God called musician in any church or place on the earth! You may not have to leave where you are. You may just get to drive the devil out of that place!

I Saw Drumsticks Striking Drums, Releasing Arrows Of Deliverance Into The Atmosphere Above!

Some drummers were weary and had even quit playing drums. But now the Lord was giving a new ‘war’ order to these weary ones. “Strike it one more time. You will no longer just play these drums, but they are now fatal weapons that you need to bring deliverance into your own life, family and region! Step on that bass drum one more time and you will soon find the enemy under your feet….this is a war order!”

Many Worn Out Musicians Were Being Called To Pick Up Their Harps Off The Weeping Willow Trees!

Many musicians were taken captive by the enemy to stop their worship and praise. The Lord was now calling many of these defeated ones to pick up their instruments again and play them in the midst of their defeats. They were discovering deliverance not only for themselves but multitudes were being led out of their captivity.

Let the music begin!

A Word For 2011 - It’s Time To ‘Hang Out Your Shingle!’

To ‘hang out your shingle’ means to begin working as a professional from your own office. A shingle is a small sign board that you put out to the public so that they can see it and know what you are available to do.

It’s Time To Allow Yourself And Your Gift To Be Made Known. Matthew 25:26

Concerning the servant who buried his gift or talent in the ground. Matthew 25:26 (Message Bible) “The master was furious. That’s a terrible way to live! It’s criminal to live cautiously like that! The least you could have done would have been to invest the sum with the bankers, where at least I would have gotten a little interest. Take it and give it to the one who risked the most. And get rid of this ‘play-it-safe’ who won’t go out on a limb. Throw him out into utter darkness!”

I sense the Lord saying, “It’s time to allow yourself to be made known and come forth with the gifts and the talents that I have deposited inside of you for such a time as this. I have need of you. Your gifts are not for yourself, they are for others.” Don’t be so humble that you think if you put yourself out there and let yourself be known for what God has put in you that that would be prideful. That is nothing by false humility! Romans 12:13 says, “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought.” The downside of this verse is that often too many of us think of ourselves too lowly than we ought to think.

Remember we are in Christ and Christ is in us. We are not lifting up ourselves but we are lifting Him up so He can draw all men unto Himself. When we hide our gifts and talents we often hide or bury ourselves with them. 2 Timothy 1:6 “Neglect not the gift that is in you.” I believe Paul was saying to Timothy, “Stir up your gift and make it available to others.”

2011- Many Will Discover Businesses And Entrepreneurships Being Birthed In Their own Homes!

The gift of ‘helps’ is always having the desire and ability to help others. I believe if we have the desire God will see to it that the ability will be there. I believe the gift of ‘helps’ of just wanting to help people will be the womb where creativity and revelation will conceive to birth many businesses and services that have been unheard of until now.
Go Out On A Limb And ‘Hang Your Shingle Out’ There….Out On A Limb Is Where The Fruit Grows!

Many who lost their jobs thinking they couldn’t exist without it will find themselves self employed and working for a King! When Jesus said, “I must be about My father’s business,’ I believe He was referring to meeting the practical needs of people as well as their spiritual needs. All work, whatever we think is secular or spiritual is the same to the Lord. It is all His business.

Go ahead. Hang out your shingle!
