Favored To Live

Dear friends,

I am honored to be a regular author now on Spirit Fuel. The Spirit Fuel network is a Christian content network with the genre niche of the supernatural. The website address is: http://www.SpiritFuel.me

I faced my terror by night. It was afraid of me. And the arrow that flies by day. It missed me. You may wonder what my terror and arrow was. Just terror and an arrow. That’s all it was. ( Psalm 91:5 )

Jesus’ birth takes place at night. ( Silent Night, Holy Night ) The darkest night in history, filled with terror. It moved satan to kill every two year old boy and younger in Bethlehem. He dreads heaven coming to earth. But the Father whispers, “Can’t touch Him!” As believers satan targets us also. If it’s the darkest time in your life, be encouraged. Jesus is about to show up. I find Him in my darkest moments. That’s when I’ve gotten to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings. Fear not, He will come and save you.

In a recent movie the lead actor battled untold suffering and terror. The end was a bloody finish. Her youthful, battered body laid lifeless, turning the theatre into a morgue. After what seemed an eternity, her eyes popped open and she lived. I found out later she was favored to live through her ordeals so she could star in the next movie series. Looking back over my life, I can relate to this. Yes, I have survived everything so far and am an overcomer. God has favored me to live through the hardest times. You too. He has another series of our life to be lived. Our times are in His hands. ( Psalm 31:15 )

Walking On Giants

In Charleston, South Carolina, a little boy about four years old walked over, looked up at me and said, “You are little!” I said to the pastor standing beside me, “What did he say?” The pastor said, “It sounds like he said, “You are little!” It made the boy feel good since he was so short. But it humbled me. It made me think. We should look at our biggest giant or mountain and say, “You are little! You are little compared to the God inside of me!” It will humble any mountain or giant to fall. What mountain or giant will the Lord raise you up to stand on top of this coming year? What stormy seas will He cause you to walk on?

On the sea of Galilee, famous for storms, I asked the Lord a question. “Lord, are we near the place where Peter got out of the boat and walked on the raging sea before he fell?” The Lord answered me. “What do you mean Peter fell? This is the sea where Peter walked!” As though He didn’t remember Peter falling. Peter sank but he walked on water.The eleven sat in the boat living in regret.The terror of that storm paralyzed them. They missed that once in a lifetime opportunity. Sinking is better than sitting. When life is over we won’t regret taking a risk for God and sinking. We will regret sitting. And God won’t remember us sinking.

The Stage Is Being Set

When it looks like it’s impossible for me to win, God is setting the stage for something greater. For many the stage is just being set. The curtains have not yet been cracked open. God is still moving behind the scenes to place us front and center. That’s why we haven’t been heard from yet. Isn’t it the stories in the Bible of the people who looked like they would never make it, that builds our faith the most? The Lord writes their heroic exploits beginning with them knowing the agony of defeat. Silent nights of terror with trouble becoming their friend. No hope of ever fulfilling their purpose. Be encouraged. God is not through writing your story.

If I Had A Hammer

Your prayers work wonders for us. Right before our New Jersey ministry trip our car wouldn’t start. Triple A road service hit the starter with a hammer and it started right up. Being too late for a mechanic to put a new starter on our car, I asked a seasoned mechanic, “What should I do?” He said, “Take a hammer with you and if it doesn’t start, hit the starter with a hammer!” I said, ” Do you mean I am going to New Jersey by the way of a hammer?” The next morning we left and never had to use the hammer. The car kept starting for us. God spoke to me on the way. “I want to release a ‘hammer anointing’ throughout the state of New Jersey.”

I used the hammer in every meeting to hit some things that God wanted to start back up
that had stopped such as ministries and to start some new things for His kingdom. His
word like a hammer came down on injustice, generational curses, the political realm and
so many other things. His hammer struck so hard that I heard the Liberty Bell ring in
Philadelphia. The claw of the hammer was used to loosen things in the Spirit. God really
does use the foolish things for His glory. Who knows how far God’s hammer will travel
across this nation and around the world. Again your prayers did it. A precious brother
there put a new starter on our car as a gift from the Lord before we left. Thanks for
your prayers.

    Repentance is the most beautiful of words. Repentance should not scare us. It is a gift from God. If we really understood it we would make it a way of life. It is turning from our sins to a Father who longs to forgive us. Last night I repented of some things. This morning I learned His grace, as well as His mercy, is new every morning. It is when I least deserve both that I have to ask: "Why me Lord? What have I ever done to deserve even one of the pleasures I've known? Tell me Lord, What did I ever do that was worth loving you for the kindness you've shown?" ( lyrics by Kris Kristofferson ) As grace poured over me, the Lord said: "When America least deserves it, I will show her My grace. I am releasing My gift of repentance. It will flood the altars of churches again. It will flood the streets. It will flood the righteous who think they are more righteous than others. Watch for My flood of repentance!"
    Many years ago I ministered in Africa. A rural song there that became a spiritual national anthem for believers was, "Africa Must Be Saved! The words are: "If you believe and I believe and we together pray, the Holy Spirit must come down and Africa must be saved!" Since 1987 God's fire has swept an estimated 75 million Africans into the Kingdom. I wonder what God could do if we changed our tune and began singing over our nation: "America Must Be Saved!"

Standing In Hard Times

A woman kept standing for the healing of her husband who suffered a stroke, leaving a third of his brain dead. The doctor said to her, "He will never fully recover but be a vegetable the rest of his life." The woman said, "No, by the stripes of Jesus he is healed." The doctor got upset with her and said, "I don't think you are taking me seriously. I have been doctoring these cases for thirty years." The woman responded, "Jesus has been healing longer than that!" Nine days later he walked out of the hospital whole.

"I'm not looking ahead to a time when I will be healed. I'm looking back to the time I was healed." - Bob Sorge

Last night I faced my terror by night. It was afraid of me. And the arrow that flies by day. It missed me. You may wonder what my terror and arrow was. Just terror and an arrow. That's all it was.

After several months of pain, prayers of many, stretching exercises and some laser treatment, my frozen shoulder is finally loosed. The pain is gone. God has intervened again in my life.Thank you for all your prayers during this ordeal.

I am learning that sometimes you must walk through some stuff to get to where God is.

The Crack In The Liberty Bell

This morning I was revisited with a vision I had of our nation in 1996.

Out of nowhere, came a vision of the Liberty Bell. My attention was naturally drawn to the crack in the Bell. I felt in my spirit so grieved to feel how it seemed to signify such a deep fatal crack in the true liberty and freedom of our nation. Could that breach ever be repaired? Why wasn’t at least the physical defect of the Bell ever filled in with more metal? Would the Bell’s scar be prophetic, representing our nation’s fatal epitaph–unchangeable like the Grand Canyon engraved into Arizona. If only the crack was not there. I felt mesmerized by it. For the longest time my eyes could not move nor could my eyelids even blink.


Then suddenly as though in a twinkling of an eye, the brightest light pierced through that crack like a dam bursting. My head immediately turned away from the brightness emanating out of that crack. Instantly I had a knowing that this was the very Shekinah Glory of God.


Looking away from its brightness, I saw a large rope that was attached to the Bell. This rope was intertwined and braided. It seemed to be made out of the prayers and intercessions of God’s people. The Hand of the Lord began to reach down towards this rope to get a hold of it.

The Lord then spoke. “This Liberty Bell is going to ring again.” I then remembered the words inscribed on that Bell: Proclaim Liberty throughout the land and to all the inhabitants thereof.” It was now a rhema word from God.

In the Spirit I had a knowing that the Liberty Bell would be heard again spiritually throughout Philadelphia and across the nation. And with the sound of Liberty, the Shekinah Glory of God would begin to rise up out of obscurity and be seen even in the gross dark places of our nation. Concerning this vision the Lord spoke, “Have My people forgotten that all things are possible?”

Tradition holds that the Bell cracked while it was being rung during a funeral service in memory of a Sheriff. Prophetically it will ring again for the life and the Glory of a King who still lives in our land.

Can you hear the bell ringing?

Are You Hungry?

I travel in ministry and give out a lot. It often leaves me empty and so hungry for God that I can't wait to receive from the Body of Christ myself. I attended a certain church once where I heard a minister share a message. After the service someone came up to me and said, "Bill, I didn't get a thing out of that minister's message." I told him, "It's because I got it all. I was so hungry I ate off your plate!" Are you hungry? "He who is full loathes honey, but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet." Proverbs 27:7
Those who hang out with friends who seem to see eye-to-eye on everything and who never disagree, will not grow much. I sense the enemy has been working overtime trying to convince many that you no longer need the irritation and grinding of certain people in your life. Be careful, the Lord may still be sharpening you. The person who is least like you and sees things so differently, may be your best asset for your future purpose in God's Kingdom.
This morning I felt I could no longer endure the painful trial going on in my life for two months now. In frustration, I cried out to God. "What are you doing to me?" He said, "I'm making a man of God out of you!" He continued, "I did not cause your pain but I'm using it."
The orthopedic doctor calls it a frozen shoulder. Jesus calls it healed. Pray as I walk through to the manifestation of my healing.  Healing runs in my family!

Sometimes Life Is Hard

Dear Friends,

I have traveled around the country enough to know that almost everyone is going through the hardest times of their lives. Somehow that comforts me. I am not alone. I believe it's time to get real with one another. When I hear that others are going through the same struggles as I am, it sets me free and lets me know I can make it.

I have gotten a few scars over thirty-six years walking with the Lord. I want to encourage you that our scars are medals in disguise. I would like to share a message I shared recently in my home church titled, 'Sometimes Life Is Hard.' I pray that you will be encouraged by it. The audio message can be heard at the church website on www.bridgeoflife.org.

We would love to hear from you.

Musings Of The Heart

Isaiah 65:8 "The new wine is found in the cluster." The Lord is moving in clusters of people. You can always tell when God is about to make new wine from the cluster where He has placed you: Some grapes will begin to "wine."

The Lord spoke to me personally. "Son, you have been faithful in hating religious spirits, but you have fallen short in loving religious people. I love them. I want to deliver them. Not loving them invites a religious spirit into your life."

Four years of college or one word of knowledge. Don't limit God with your education.

Where the devil wants to kill you is often the place where God wants to use you.

Pray again. Even Jesus prayed a second time to heal a blind man's eyes. Mark 8:22-26

Firebrands In God's Hand

The enemy is about to hear from our children and grandchildren beginning this season.
Watch and expect the passion for Christ to run wild like a raging fire inside of them.
The Lord has allowed them to be placed in strategic locations in the earth and even in
some unusual places where we might think they shouldn’t be. Even in prisons, homeless on
the streets, or wherever they are being held in satan’s grip. They have now been divinely
positioned to become a firebrand in God’s hand to ignite and explode like dynamite inside
the camp of the enemy! This is why the enemy forever has fought against marriages. He
feared concerning the Godly seed that was about to come upon the earth to do him in! And
here they come! Genesis 22:17 ( Message Bible ) “Your descendants will defeat their

If a coin was found in a fish's mouth, maybe there is a connection between our mouth and
our money. How many times have we said, "I'm broke, I'm sick, I'm catching a
cold," and watched it come to pass? Little do we realize that when we open our mouth
we are prophesying either good or bad! Why not say, "I have all the money I will
ever need! I'm being attacked by healing! Healing runs in my family! I heard a saying
once that even a fish would stay out of trouble if it learned to keep its mouth shut!

Just One Step At A Time

"I was reminded of Nik Wallenda's walk across the Grand Canyon recently. I watched
it with fear for him. There was no safety net. He said, "A couple times I had to stoop down to get my balance for the winds were so strong at that moment." He said, "When I stooped down, I was afraid and felt like crying out for my mother. I then remembered my father saying to me years ago. "Son, remember, it's one step at a time. Just one step at a time." Nik said, "I got up and took that step and then another and then another and I crossed over into my dream come true."
In the Spirit I saw many people as though they are walking a high wire over the Grand
Canyon in their lives in desperate situations. I saw the strong winds of adversity
blowing against them. "It's a good time to stoop down to get your balance and kneel
in prayer. And remember, your heavenly Father is saying. "It's one step at a time.
Just one step at a time."

A Kairos Moment: The Door Is Open

Kairos: "The appointed time in the purpose of God." The time when God acts.

We have entered a unique kairos moment. God has heard our cries for, "Why not now? Why not here?" Godly secrets of the heart will be manifested. Our moment to change history has arrived. It will explain why we haven't been heard from yet. I sense strongly a couple of those God moments taking place on the earth. For one: There will be those who will change history with a pen. An innocent pen will become the axis that will turn the world upside down and birth a nation in a day. ( Isaiah 66:8 )  And the other one: Many who have wept long lonely nights will discover that their tears were seeds of flowers that are now blooming for their wedding day. Many will discover their once-in-a-life time moment and why they were born. The door is open!

 "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written." St. John 21:25

I saw gold pens falling from heaven as though they were thrown by the angels. They were hurled like javelins into the hands of unknown people. These pens turned into spears and swords as they fell into these hands. As their fingers began to write; books, songs and poetry were becoming lethal weapons to war against the enemy! Psalm 144:1 was being activated throughout the earth! "Blessed be the Lord my strength, who teaches my hands to war and my fingers to fight!" Is there a book in you? A song stirring in your heart? Poetry that keeps coming to the surface? Perhaps the Lord is calling you this hour to pick up your pen! 

Long awaited 'end-time' weddings will take place upon the earth, preceding the greatest wedding in the Universe.

I saw veils of singleness that had been covering many single men and women for years, in spite of their desire to marry. These veils were actually covering them to protect and hide them from wrong relationships. Many had thought, "What's wrong with me? No one seems to notice me or even look at me." But I saw the wisdom of God hard at work to preserve these chosen ones for the person whom the Lord was preparing and keeping separate for them. I sensed the Father saying to their guardian angels, "Begin to lift the veils of 'singleness' off of their faces. It's time for them to see and be seen by the ones whom I have ordained for them. As I sent an angel to direct the steps of Isaac's servant to find Rebecca for him, I am sending angels before them to guide them." 

 I've noticed a pattern that weaves through my life. After seasons of living in obscurity a kairos moment thrusts me to a higher, more noble place. There I discover God had been using me all along, perhaps even most in those seasons when I felt like quitting.

Inside The Prayer Closet

Have you ever felt like quitting? Aren't you glad that Jesus never quit? Quitters never win! Winners never quit! 

A mother's prayers are powerful, but oh, the power of a grandmother's prayers! Grandmothers not only spoil their grandchildren; they spoil the enemy's plans for them as well. I saw bloodhounds from Heaven being released to pursue this third generation. I saw grandmothers pleading the blood of Jesus over their grandchildren and these bloodhounds were picking up the scent of that blood as they began to outrun and overtake these young ones at every turn. There was no more hiding place for them.

At age seven I was miraculously healed of a brain tumor in Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. The tumor surgery had to be cancelled. After all these years the Lord recently opened the door to that hospital to pray for people with brain injuries. I am discovering something. Where the devil wants to kill you is often the place where God wants to use you.

'Angelic' doctors and nurses are being released upon the earth this hour...you may want to get a second opinion. The nurse's name was Peggy. She came during many long nights to sing hymns to a dear friend of mine while he was in the hospital in critical condition. Later, he wanted to personally thank her for her encouragement and kindness. Upon asking the hospital staff and the other nurses on that floor, they responded, "Oh, she is that 'traveling' nurse. We don't know where she comes from or where she goes!

A lion roared inside our mothers' wombs. "I have called you to be a prophet to the nations." Think of it. God calls us to be a prophet to the nations. Nothing in me to this day can get a handle on that. This awesome thought puts me into a fetal position from the start. Most of my life has been uneasy with this call. Who am I that a King would bleed and die for and think of me in this way. Revelation like lightning flashes before me at times, but not on most days. And yet on my worst days the call rings true blue. It's who God says I am.

When you know what God has called you to do, nothing can stop you but yourself. I still never quite get used to ministering to people or typing out a message. But the butterflies are fewer. My knees are not so weak. The call of God reminds me: I can do this. This is what I was born for. And the greater One is in me. The roar of an untamed lion is in our call.

For many years I had doubted the call of God on my life. Until the day an apostle spoke over me. "Bill, it's not your fault that you're a prophet. But you have to walk in it." Don't apologize for the call of God on your life either. It's not your fault. Walk in it and let the lion roar!

I Live To Hear God Speak

The first time God spoke to me personally I didn't know it was Him. I thought it was my mother. When I was five years old she would tell everybody, "This is my little preacher!" It embarrassed me at the time. But looking back it was God speaking through her. Thirty-six years in ministry I am still preaching. It's humbling but the Lord will often speak to us through the least likely people as part of our training before we can hear His voice for ourselves. The Lord uses unique vessels. Like iron that sharpens iron, they often are the keys that unlock our spiritual ears.

As a new Christian, out of the gate running, hell took its best shot at me to abort the innate desire to ever hear God's voice. A wedge of contention drove deep between my Bible teacher and me the moment he said,"God spoke to me." Those words were alien to me. Immediately, my whole being was flooded with doubts as the enemy unleashed those infamous fatal words: "Indeed, has God said?" Genesis 3:1. Surely this man had a big ego problem thinking God Almighty would take the time to speak to him personally among the billions of people on earth. I left the Bible study in frustration that evening thinking he was certainly out of his mind. That crazy teacher kept me awake. An hour later a question walked into my bedroom, "But what if you could? What if you could actually hear God speak to you"? As I began to faintly consider the possibility of an answer, that question lit a fire within me that has never gone out. I thought to myself, if God could actually speak to me, I would be willing to wait thirty or forty years to hear Him speak one word: not a whole sentence but just one word.

 Two hours later the Lord himself walked into my sleepless night. He said, "Son, I want to speak to you more than you want me to." From that moment my journey began listening for His voice. Now you know what I live for. I live to hear God speak. My worst days have taught me: when God speaks you live! When God speaks you're healed! When God speaks you're delivered! Storm clouds scatter. Dead dreams thunder with life! I'm not talking about man speaking but when God speaks you live! His voice has brought me through hell and back, changing doctors' reports and adding years to my life. The devil's best shot missed me.

Whispers In Secret

I talked to mom last night at 88 yrs. old. She said, "Bill, I can't tell everyone this for they wouldn't believe it, but wanted to let you know. I was feeling discouraged and all of a sudden I was in the lap of Jesus. I don't know how I got there. He put His arm around me and I felt the greatest peace I have ever known." This is one more reason why I call mom everyday to see what God is doing in her life. I know the day will come when I call her and the phone will ring with no answer.

 Before I get up to minister lately I have found myself weeping at times, The last meeting I asked my wife if she had any more kleenexes. I've noticed the atmosphere is so different when this happens. God comes in on the wings of brokenness. He is healing our broken wings to fly again.

Can you keep a secret?

I am learning that when God whispers one of His secrets to us sometimes it is to be kept between us and Him. Not many of us can keep a secret. It is tempting when you are told not to tell anybody, to want to tell everyone.

It's been two months now but it seems like I have been in this fiery furnace of trial forever. It must be the intense heat of seven times hotter that's affecting my vision, for I just saw a man step into my furnace. And this man looks like the Son of God! How can it be, that I now feel so free?

 All I want now is to carry the presence of the Lord, for I hear the cries of a dying world. I can hear billions.

 It's Maple Syrup Season. The sap of the Holy Spirit is flowing in spite of cold weather that refuses to let go of us. Newness of life is now flowing.

Big Leagues And Big Hits Go Together

During the recent Super Bowl game, the kickoff receiver caught the football deep in the end zone and ran like a deer only to hit a brick wall of opposition at about the 20 yard line. Even the announcer sounded shaken at the sudden impact felt high above the stadium. The receiver held onto the football with a vengeance, and the opposing players' frantic scramble to steal the ball was all in vain.
Later in the game, unable to forget this play, I said to the Lord, "Why have I been in a season where I have been taking so many hard hits?" The Lord answered, "Son, I have put you into the big league. Big leagues and big hits go together!" His words were life to me. The enemy almost convinced me, "God has left you and He doesn't care about you." I thought it was God letting me down when He was actually raising me up.
I could see where God was now. He was on the sideline as my coach. Coaches are not allowed on the field when the game is going on. That's why He didn't seem near. Could it be when we experience His awesome presence is when we are on the sidelines with Him receiving encouragement and instructions for the next game play? All of a sudden, I felt honored by those hits and assaults from the opposition coming against me. They were now signs and confirmation of my promotion. Many others have been promoted into the big league of God's kingdom and are unaware of it. When the enemy hits you hard or life itself comes against you, hold onto the football with both hands. Hold onto God's word that He has spoken to you. The enemy's job is to strip the football or God's word from you. And when you get knocked down, get up proudly, for you are in the big league and the game is not over.

A Word For Thailand That Will Impact The Nations In 2013 - "I'll Be Home With Bells On!"

I sense the Lord saying for this coming year, "I will meet you in dark places so your light can shine." Thailand is number one in child sex trafficking. Perhaps the Lord has chosen the darkest place to bring forth deliverance to children world wide.

Throughout biblical and recorded history, whenever God was about to do something big in a nation to rescue His people, the enemy would target the babies from being born and attack young children from fulfilling their destiny. Somehow the enemy had an inkling that from these young ones 'deliverers' of nations would come. He, the enemy, tried to thwart the delivery of deliverers...BUT GOD!

'With bells on' means: eager, ready to particpate.

The word came like a knife penetrating the belly of hell concerning Thailand. "I'll be home with bells on!" Angels were placing bells into the trembling hands of children tormented by darkness. Bells started ringing, An irrevocable sound bombarding Thailand had come, shaking that nation with the vengeance of the Lord. Midwives, like angels unaware, were being called from the nations and began arriving to deliver these young children full term into their destinies. Bells of freedom were ringing throughout the land. Thailand heard them and her face began to change. Mountains broke forth with singing and the trees of the field clapped their hands as a monumental treasure chest was opened revealing the riches of her inheritance in the earth. Natural as well as spiritual riches, hidden in secret places, were unearthed. Children once in bondage rose from the gutters, singing and dancing on the heels of injustice. These children began invading whole cities. Approaching their city gates, their bold arrow-like proclamations struck the very heart of their enemies. "The gates of hell shall not prevail against us. We are still here and now increasing. Greater is He who is in us than he that is in the world!"
Thailand's Quiver Is Full And Shaking With Power
"As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth." Psalm 127:4 "Blessed is the man ( or nation ) whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they ( the children ) contend with their enemies in the gate."
2013 - Here Come The Children
Their divine inate gifting was reason enough for the devil's attack, but the greater the enemy's assault, the greater the revelation of God's glory. I sensed the Lord saying, "I will use the abused!" 'Here come the cures for certain terminal diseases. Here come world renowned-doctors, great leaders in governments, Davidic musicians and worshipers, songwriters, singers with angelic bands accompanying them. Here come the children!"
The bells in Thailand were heard world wide. The enemy's war against children had boomeranged. I sensed the Lord saying, "In 2013, I am unleashing young children with the call and anointing of Daniel, Elijah, Deborah & Esther with their angels into their nations. Unusual anointings will take place also in America especially from kindergarden age to twelve years old from the twenty young seeds that fell into the ground mercilessly in Newtown, Connecticut. A New Town shall emerge with an army of children who will be dispatched to the nations. From Sandy Hook Elementary School, I am putting a 'hook' in the jaw of this nation. And a little child shall lead them." I sense the enemy trembling with questions, "Where are these children so young, yet dangerous, coming from? Have they come to turn the world upside down? And why at this time?"

I sense strongly, "The time to favor Thailand has come." The word "THAI" means "FREE", and therefore "Thailand" means "Land of the Free."

A song was being born again in the hearts of children world wide. "This little light of mine. I'm gonna let it shine. This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine. Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine! I won't let Satan blow it out, I'm gonna let it shine, won't let Satan blow it out, I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!"
